This choice document of 80's American marginal fringe malarky carries on where the first installment that I posted a few weeks back left off, with many of the same parties reappearing here and articulating a distinctly rough hewn American spin on this era of improv, tape collage, noise and assorted avant esoterica; pride of place on this one for me going to the Woo-meets-Biota wobble of Canada's Violence & The Sacred and Randy Greif's spot-on roundelay through subterranean mesmerism.

Track listing:

Violence & The Sacred-Butchered Edit
Blitzoids-Theme From A Summer Place
German Shepherds-It's Always Wet In Debby's Prison
Randy Greif-A Lot Like You
German Shepherds-The First Man To Give Birth
Musica Menta-Weasels Of Tibet
Furry Couch-Skeleton Orchestra
Proof Of Utah-Hot Rods To Hell
Gary Marks-Improvisation 1-19-88
Eugene Chadbourne-A-The First Porthole Solo In History, B-The Last Communist Banjo Solo Of 1987
Elizabeth Harper-Green
Scott Marshall-The Enemy Within
