Random Thought: A Victoria Sampler Vol. 1 & 2





1986. Two 60 minute cassettes. One helluva compilation.

Random Thought was intended as an overview of the independent music scene in Victoria, British Columbia of that year. Apparently, the purpose of this comp was to highlight songs that never made it to vinyl.

Here's a two-fer for you greedy mofos.

OK buddy, you're in on the Mega Super Mammoth. Wordpress screws over all kinds of music bloggers. The only reason they haven't bothered me, I presume, is that I don't offer files. Good luck building your audience.

This compilation wasn't so much an overview of Victoria's scene that year as it was a chronicle of Victoria's scene up to that point. Bands like the Infamous Scientists had been broken up for a while by 1986. Still it was a good compilation of Victoria "alternative" bands of the early and mid 80s.
