Various Artists "All Your Ears Can Hear" Double CD

This is a truly amazing compilation. It is one of those scene documentary pieces but instead of it being a film this is a comp. Jason Flower was the main person behind the project and as a result the comp needed to be on 2 CDs. An amazing book where each band participating gets a page that is used to help find out details on them. And the scene they document is their own which is in Victoria, BC. Vancouver is documented pretty well but the scene that NoMeansNo grew out of isn't. The Neos is probably the only other band really known from here and that is only by hardcore collectors. And being geographically isolated Victoria had a chance to develop on thier own more so than other scenes that were on touring routes. As a result you get a snapshot of just some collected highlights of Victoria. You can inquire at Supreme Echo about the availability of this comp but I doubt there is any left. The songs on here are:

1. Infamous Bastards - Canada's Pissed
