Little Whore Records Presents Thirty Bands You Never Heard Of And Probably Never Will
Little Whore ( )

Little Whore Records has managed to adeptly compile thirty bands you never heard have and probably never will. They're are all from Edmonton or have some connection to the city and are all something you punk-junkies/weirdos will absolutely love. That's right, every one of them. The tracks were collected from the 29 releases that precede this one on Little Whore Records and some were recorded especially for this compilation. The dominant quality to this album is its pure eccentricity and unique style. Although the methodology takes on a range of characteristics you could probably most easily classify the album in the genre of punk for it's predominating fast blasts, disregard for proper playing, snarling vocals, garage-style recording.
 
Distorted guitar and the stickin'-to-the-man attitude aren't the only things making this album rock hard. "Miami Bass Machine" is a satirical Italo-disco track. "Damned" by Jane Wayne and The West is the weirdest doo-wop you'll ever hear complete with quirky electro clicks, samples and chants of monks. If it was laid down back in the 50s people would think they'd gone mad yet Jane Wayne's on-the-ball vocals are so delicious. Dr. Seltsam lays down a track entitled "Billy the Gimp" that is a ruthless rockabilly number that slices silence with a witty veracity.
 
From start to finish this album kicks serious ass. Every track is a pure gem of some style that won't sit all too easy. Wether it's Dressing For Pleasures' discordant noise-jam, the killer riot-girl rock of Buxom or The Welfarians' screaming and angst ridden fight-song this collection will rev you up hardcore style!!!
