The cassette on now -- as you can probably easily figure out -- is the one with a gent sporting a stylish gas mask.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

It won't be easy to ID today's LP-under-the-cassettes, but in case anyone wants to venture a guess, here are two clues: it's the back cover, and it's part of a series of samplers that Uncle Michael once featured in a special.

I've got almost all of 'em, I think.

Kay, thanks for the punctuation. I had the album as a pup (retail family, I got piles of demo albums) and somewhere between Pawtucket and here, it got lost.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

So, a lot of cassettes are really unbalanced channel-wise, and I have to admit I sometimes fiddle with the balance here on Tape Hiss to make the channels a wee bit more even. Am I going to Hell?

Tony, I'd be the last person to criticize anything on the grounds of being unbalanced. 8) Do what ya gotta do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

I think often people in these super-low-budget recording situations used channel balance as a form of mixing. The imbalance is totally fine when you're some distance from the speakers, but if you're sitting right in front of a computer it's more noticeable and distracting (at least to an obsessive like me).

One of the comments blames...Obama. Rather, it notes that back then Gibson tried to blame Obama.

Frankly, I blame all this tech-fangled synthesized noise you play.

This Res Publika tape is, I think, number 8 in a series of comps. I should try to hunt down the others. This one was the label's last release.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:08pm fred:

Where were they based? From this one it seems like tracking down the others might be time well spent
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

They were a Swedish label. Don't know which city.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:11pm Tony Coulter:

Stockholm (just checked the booklet).

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:20pm Scraps deSelby:

I had a loss leader that I forgot its name, label Ensign (a Phonogram subsidiary), which had one track by a great early new wave band called Slow Children, “Spring in Fialta” (Nabokov ref.). It was so awesome, maybe the best Slow Children song, but it was short. The album version was stretched out by nearly a minute, and they did by pretty much stretching out the instrumental part. Then there was a longer version. Both longer, inferior versions made it into the CD, but not the short, perfect version. As far as I know, the loss leader was the only appearance of the perfect 2:20. I appreciate loss leaders just for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

So, the next tape -- the Ob Minimax -- is very dark and creepy ... sort of a meditation on fascism and evil. Perfect for the first day of Spring!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

@ Scraps deSelby: I'm a Slow Children fan too! Some of the Warner Bros loss leaders had exclusive material, so I appreciate them for that. One thing I remember is a Van Dyke Parks Honda commercial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:27pm Scraps deSelby:

Ah, I found it. It was called Blitz, with songs by Bow Wow Wow, Polyrock, Sparks, and also a great song by Robert Ellis Orrall, “Call the Uh-Oh Squad”:

And then there's the band Nox: www.discogs.com...

Tony, do you know Pal Shazar had a solo career, more than ten years later? Lots of her albums were good, and one of them was great: =There’s a Wild Thing in the House= (1996)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:33pm Tony Coulter:

Didn't know that, no! Her voice is definitely Slow Children's secret ingredient.

Her voice is distinctive, right up to the edge of brittle. Her lyrics are awesome, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/20/18 2:37pm fred:

This sounds closer to Nox Factio's sound than Nox the band. BTW, as far as I know Nox Factio only released cassettes
