The Unknown Tape Compilation Series (Cassette)

The Unknown Tape Compilation Series was put together by Julian Smyth on his Rain Tapes label in the 80s, and featured a lot of the notable alternative and underground acts of that decade.

The Unknown 7

Another tape in the Unknown series, which features bands from around the world. The tracks are really well-recorded. Most of the tracks seem to border on commercial/underground sounds. Big Red Bus produce a rich, pleasant vocal harmony on “Blind Selfish Faith”. Afterwards The Entropy Guild blow away the dust when they enter with “Yesterday”. Attractively presented with free news sheet and info on the bands.

- Andy Bruce, Peace & Freedom, No. 6, Vol. 2, Summer 1989
