Lebenden Toten "State Laughter" CD [Feral Wars]—Wow! Lebenden Toten is a Discharge/Japanese hardcore obssessed group who have the most psychedelic guitar player in the genre since Randy Uchida or the dude from Confuse. I love this band! 

Mighty Baby "A Jug of Love" CD [Sunbeam]—I used to have the Italian Flash CD of this with the band's track from the Glastonbury 3LP on it but I never warmed up to it. I am from California and there's something about these UK wannabe country rock bands that really rubs me the wrong way. Coshise anyone? This time the record sounds better to me. Maybe it was too mellow the first time. 

v/a Richard Pinhas: Single Collection 1972-1980 CD [Captain Trip]— This collection of Pinhas rarities has a little bit for everyone: exploito jams, proto-metal, punk disco, Heldon and pure Pinhas. I guess you could say it's the artier brother of the "Têtes Lourdes" comp.
