Various Artists "No T.O." LP

This is a great idea. From the moment I heard of it I couldn’t wait to get a copy. And now I am getting to hear the final product. Taking the “Yes L.A.” comp that Dangerhouse put out and having bands from your neighbouring home town cover it. But in reading the liner notes this is as easy as it sounds. It’s only six songs, but you know how bands over commit to things and just can’t deliver on half the shit they promise be it for financial reasons, time constraints, competing schedules and whatnot. But STEF AND THE STUDS seemed to save the day, which I think may have been a makeshift project between the VAPIDS and Zoe of the defunct BAYONETTES. They do great versions of the BAGS’ “We Don’t need the English” and the ALLEYCATS’ “Too Much Junk”. CAREER SUICIDE cover the EYES’ “Disneyland”. The DANGERLOVES do the X’s “Los Angeles”. And LEGION666 take on the GERM’s “No God” appropriately enough. The vinyl is see through with a silkscreen on the underside. The record is one sided like the original I believe. And it is limited to 300 copies. (Schizophrenic Records – 17 West 4th Street / Hamilton, ON / L9C 3M2 / Canada /
