The Hawaiian Death Stomp


I found a box of cd recently, cds I made myself between 2006 and 2010. I used to regularly burn compilation cds and make handwritten or typed tracklists and then print covers for them. Is that sad? I'm surely not the only person who did it. Am I? Anyway, one of them was a bunch early 90s progressive dance tracks and in the middle was this by Four Boy One Girl Action, David Homes, Kris Needs, Jags Kooner and Gary Burns being the four boys. It was the first release on Holmes' Exploding Plastic Inevitable record label in 1993. The One Girl was Patti Smith, sampling her 'I haven't fucked much with the past but I've fucked plenty with the future' line. Strangely, in all the time I've been doing this blog, this is Patti Smith's first appearance here. The Hawaiian Death Stomp is long, pounding, percussive and pretty essential.

You aren't alone Adam. I've still got a batch of the compilation CDs I made 10-15 years ago. I didn't make covers, though I did type up the tracklists and give them each individual titles. I no longer have certain tunes on those discs in any other medium or format. I feel a feature coming on....

As the Swede said. I often used to find myself making compilations for others that I felt were so good that I would make a copy for myself even although I had all the tracks elsewherw

The Swede said...

Charity Chic, tell me that I wasn't the only person to include 'hidden' tracks on those compilations made for others?

Walter said...

I also made different compilations for me, friends of mine and Pubs in the late 90s. And Swede - you're not the only one which included hidden tracks on the compilation.

Dirk said...

Never did that.


I made tapes though!

"In 2010 when I used to regularly burn compilation cds and make handwritten or typed tracklists and then print covers for them. Is that sad?" Me too Adam, still do. Your blog is one such source.

George said...

By the way CC, are you still doing those offerings???????

charity chic said...

Sorry Swede and Walter I'm with Dirk -no hidden tracks
George -I'm afraid that the Burnt Offerings are a thing of the past.Too busy blogging

Glad it wasn't just me. I only stopped cos my disc drive broke. Now I've got a new computer I might start again.

Burned compilation CDs - Guilty.
Tracklists - Guilty.
Hawaiian Death Stomp - Guilty as charged.
