Apologies for the prolonged hiatus. More mp3 discs with music from 1984 will be posted in a month's time or so. The delay has nothing to do with lack of good music -- I've several discs more or less ready, including new volumes of jangle, fringe and others. Your host (that's me) is simply occupied writing a thesis, which is due in November.

Meanwhile, enjoy this great (if grainy and out-of-sync, admittedly) clip of Minutemen performing "Little Man With a Gun in His Hand" with Charlie Haden at McCabe's Guitar Shop, Santa monica (1984).


Disc 13 - Compass vol. 1

"Compass" collects (mostly) non-rock based music from areas around the world outside of North-America and Europe (though some of these artists may have been based and recording in European countries at the time). The compass helped us find this music (yes, we could have called it "map"), and it also allows us to avoid a slightly more controversial term (which we shall not mention here). Enjoy!
