Welcome To Green Bay - late 80's Punk Compilation Tape
Welcome To Green Bay - late 80's underground music compilation cassette tape
Mission Of Mercy
Released by "Ragman Records" back in the late 80's, this tape features a sampling of some of the local hardcore/metal/punk/rock bands from Green Bay WI during that time period. Out of the nine bands, I would have to say Depo Provera might be the most nationally recognizable. The band features Rev. Norb (ex-Suburban Mutilation) who would later go on to front the band Boris The Sprinkler. Others might also be familiar with Withdraw who had a 7" release on the infamous Mystic/Superseven Records in the mid-80's. All in all, some of the bands on this cassette are better than others, the genres and sound quality also varies greatly throughout the tape and not all of the local bands from that era are represented, but for the most part this is a cool little trip back in time to GB's late 80's punk scene.
