Tapeworm Tapes Compilations

Tadpoles Are Cannibalz

As this comp. features all me ol' mates, tis a bit hard to review... but I'll try. Knockout stuff by P&F, great organ playing, and vox. by Paulie. "Ethereal" is a track for vampire freaks... Andy Savage is in weird form all through... The Tadpoles eat through their own kind. Gypsy & Schulz are in laid-back form. Schulz is some guitar player, especially on "Tears After Midnight", "Lovers of the Dance", "Life Is a Bitch" and "Oranges". Man's Hate have the best material, though, with the boy-wonder Xport jiving on "Ding Dong (Avon Calling)" and "Farming Diary". Andy Savage is a Burnley supporter, so buy it and cheer the old boy up.

You Fat Git

Best comp. of last year, with chart-busting-a-go-go stuff, like Don Campau's "I Never Panicked" - a raunchier guitar sound would be a bit difficult to find. Some class from Nostalgie Eternelle. Always wear nappies, when listening to Mad Mick or Sav, these guys will move the strongest bladders. The things Torvill and Dean get up to on here is nobody's business. The star turn, of course, are P&F...
