Superpowers Cassette
Troubleman Unlimited 0.5

We were off last week, but we’re back and with what is probably the most requested thing out of my entire music collection. I’ve put it off for a while since it meant tracking down the original zine, scanning it in, encoding the cassette, etc., etc., but here it is in it’s entirety, both the cassette and book. As you can see by the track listing, it could very well be one of the best punk rock compilations to have ever been produced. This comes from one of the first 300 hand-dubbed cassettes. Another 700 were psudo-professionally made for a total of 1,000. A lot of these tracks can only be found here (including stuff that never made it on official “complete discographies” of some of the individual bands). The quality of the recordings vary greatly, but most of the tracks are stellar. Also included in the zine are interviews with record label Simple Machines, Rorschach, Shudder To Think, Sticks and Stones, as well as a Merel tour diary.

  1. Thanks much for posting this! I still have my original cassette, though I have no idea where my zine went. I’ve been hankering to hear it recently after finding some Shudder to Think rarities and currently have no way to upload it digitally, so thanks again!

  2. It took me a while to track down my zine as well. Fortunately I had converted the cassette to CD a few years ago so I had the tracks. The zine is a really interesting read as well. I really liked the Simple Machines interview.
