V/A Aural Fixation MC
One of the early cassette releases on Sound Of Pig. This tape label was run by Al Margolis of If, Bwana and released over 200 tapes, documenting the international experimental scene.
'Aural Fixation' compiles mostly acts from the USA, except for the Haters from Canada.
Savage Republic offer a live recording of 'Exodus'.
Schlafengarten brings us 2 tracks. Known for his collaborations with Psyclones.
Theatre Of Ice is more in a goth/postpunk direction.
Nice to see Smersh appear here as well. F/i offers a track from their early, more experimental period.
The other acts are not really known to me. Girls On Fire did a tape on the French Vita Nova cassette label.
