Compilation released on RRRecords in 1988, The cover is actually an lp size glossy zine with each artist getting a two page spread. I'd like to scan it and share, but do to the oversized nature of it, it would be a massive headache puzzlepiecing multiple scans together to create the individual pages.
I did the best i could with the S.B.O.T.H.I. section, his contribution was very similar to the Captured Music concept, only his tracks are a series of breaks,parts, empty space, and locked grooves, see diagram:


Side 2 has alot of artists i've never heard of before, but for me they've outdone the more well known artists on side 1. well, Aside from Sink Manhattan, who seem to be the odd man out on this comp. Like a punk rock killing joke with chu ishikawa on percussion.
