RIP Records

RIP Records

Hey people, thanks for all the kind words and thanks for keeping the scene alive.

A loooot of dead links now, huh? I should curate my blog a bit more. I would like to revise it and change it, maybe add some more info about the comp scene of the 80s. 

At the meantime - while I think about what I should do and how I should do it - I'll just resurrect the dead links. I'm keeping the zips at mediafire instead, hope it works better for y'all.

Ok, let's talk about my comps for a while. Not all my comps are for the beginner. If you're just starting out checking out garage then - well buy all Back From The Grave from Crypt Records or hit up Norton Records
But if you just wanna dip yer toe, then check out volume 5, 6, 15, 18 and 21. Can't fail with those.

Anyhoo, here's the link to all my comps.

Thank you for staying tuned. I'm not dead yet.

USA Garage Greats

USA Garage Greats

Many are the myths of how these came to be. This epic series created by one Gyro and published on Ryp's blog Twilight Zone caused quite a stir and angered peddlers of garage rock.
I've used a lot of Gyro's rips for my own comps.

If you wish that I don't share these, just write something in the comment section.

Here are the 175 volumes on USA Garage Greats:

Miscelleneous Re-ups


I'll be doing this all week.
And to be clear - I haven't ripped the original comps. I've used mp3s available to me to recreate them in the best order I can. I think garage comps are a special thing in themselves. To listen to them in the way they are intended is fascinating.

BossHoss first three forum comps in FLAC

BossHoss Forum Comp Vol. 1 - 3

Absolute CLASSIC comps. Ripped by BossHoss, picks by different dudes and dudettes. There where only three Forum Comps proper of this kind, but BossHoss treated us to so much more excellent stuff.

Back before then the sound quality of garage punk comps were pretty abysmal - for different reasons; the scarcity of the sources, the mishandling of master tapes, some peoples ideas of fucking up great original punk and washing it to sound like impotent shit... but also the scarcity of the compilation albums compiling all this great music, and the poor vinyl being used.

But BossHoss showed us commoners who don't own Sonic Inc's Diddy Wah Diddy/Nobody To Love how fucking excellent it could sound.
He also made available lotsa tracks that were just not considered for use on comps or who had been used too many times but in sub-par sound.

Others followed suit; Masterbeat64, RichStrauss, BBTD, Eargasm...and many more.
I ripped the physical comps and burnt them to CD-Rs and put them in physical envelopes and mailed them to people around the world.

And in the end it inspired me to start this blog, to be able to spread the music efficiently.

Anyhoo - these three comps are very special to me. I hope you will appreciate them.

One of the finest series of the garage comps of yore. Rich Strauss released 8 glorious volumes. Clean rips and an interesting selection, all from his own personal collection.

Wyld Canada Box

Wyld Canada Box

Put together some 15 years ago.  Top rips and excellently mastered. If I read complains in the comments I will delete this post, so be quick or miss out.

These are all in lossless FLAC, so get ready for big zips.
