Took a chance on this, the only thing I had heard Bo Peep play was 'B level motion' which I had seen a popular website where people can post their own videos (don't think I can mention their name). That video is awesome Kassan from Red Bacteria Vacuum is guesting with them, it absolutey rocks.
Anyway it was a chance worth taking, the whole album rumbles along in the same vein.

These two tracks are the only ones which I think were properly recorded.
The rest seem to be of demo quality or live tracks, BUT the material is so strong, stand out tracks are "Punk rock stars", "Arabs in Arrads" (great lyrics), "Animal bondage", "Rat city" and "Frankensteins heartbeat".

Good stuff by the Wasps, Maniacs and the Art Attacks, did also like the track by the Suspects "nothing to declare".
Not too keen on Berme Torme, Neo and Mean Street.
Bit of a mixed bag, but worth buying if you are interested in this period.
PS you can get full length albums nowadays by Art Attacks and the Maniacs (although they are cobbled together from singles, demos and live tracks).
