0037 - V/A - Terminal Decay LP (Artcore Zine)

I heard about this fanzine after reading a post on the Collective Zine forum, so I decided to pick up the latest copy. When I went to order I saw it came with an LP. Even better!

The LP is a compilation of different punk/hardcore bands from across the globe. It's also one of the only zine's I know about now that include vinyl records with their zine's, instead of CD's.

The zine actually came inside the record sleeve, which protected it from our sometimes overzealous postal system.

There was no normal insert included with the record. Everything is listed on the back of the sleeve.


Side A -

1. 1981 - Nightmare/Reality
2. The Rebel Spell - No Thanks
3. The Furloughs - Contemplation Camp
4. Bad Sam - Black John Wayne
5. Arctic Flowers - Ascension
6. Fracaso - Miradas
7. Knuste Ruter - Game Over
8. Agent Attitude - Can't Have Me
9. 40 Hells - Moral Logic
10. Hygiene - Asbestosis

Side B -

11. Night Birds - Paranoid Times
12. Ruidosa Inmundicia - Blanco Y Negro
13. Burnt Cross - Break The Law, Not The Poor
14. Off With Their Head - Rikki Rae
15. DHK - Y Si No Estas Preparadx?
16. Endless Grinning Skulls - Squalor
17. Vengeance - Bullshit Attitude
18. Pettybone - Le Regard
19. Estranged - The Ride
20. Burning Sensation - Terminal Decay

The record itself was printed on black vinyl. The centre sticker on the A side features all of the bands/songs on both sides on it as well, which is a nice touch.

I'm not sure how many of these were pressed, but the zine is still available to buy direct from Artcore's bigcartel -

The zine itself is really good. It's glossy cover gives way to a black and white printed zine, kind of in the vein of Maximum Rock n Roll. There's the usual band features and record/zine reviews, as well an awesome scene roundup about West German punk! It's well worth picking up.
