Various Artists ‎–"L.A. Mantra II" (Trance Port Tapes ‎– trance 8) 1984

Afterimage (see previous post) were on "L.A.Mantra "1, so here's "L.A.Mantra II", and there's even  another Brit influenced post punk-a-like group on here,the Abecedarians (they even got signed to Factory for a short while in '86!?)
Be not afraid, for there are many other early 80's shoebox's emptying their contents onto two cassettes, for your enjoyment,or otherwise. We got minimal synth, Minimalism, avant rock, mutant disco,ambient, modern composition, avant garde,drone, and plenty of LAFMS hangers on adding their ten cents.
All in, its a great compilation of interesting musics, equal in quality to its predecessor,but in better packaging.
(Thanks go to Carlo for this by the way. includes the  booklet pdf file.)

One of the soundtracks to my adolescence. Saw a number of these folk live, inc. the Abecedarians open for New Order in '86 or so. Tho were you aware that Psi-Com features a pre-Jane's Addiction Perry Farrel? Do or DIY in trendy grunge shocker!

Jonny Zchivago said...

Not aware of the Farrel connection! were janes addiction Grunge?...thought they were some kind of awful sub-metal genre crud? I'll admit to doing some grunge;i liked Tad? But they were more or less Thug Metal,so thats ok?

Mr Fab said...

Yeah, actually they were sub-Zepplin, but music biz marketing swept them all into the commercial end of 'alt-rock' aka 'grunge.'Fairly meaningless terms by the '90s. But what is important is: neither download option is working for me! Had no trouble dl-ing the An Bene/Pierre Lambow (thanks for that, btw), so not sure if it's computer gremlins at my end, or what..?

Jonny Zchivago said...

Dunno if you've tried downloading it recently,as there is now only one option,and it seems to work. I had to repair the file,and re-upped it to google drive. Try again sir.

Also some connections to Savage Republic, through both the Bruce 'letterpress' Licher and Brad Laner tracks (and to LAMFS etc. via Tom Recchion, but you knew that.)
