80s Nuggets: Hyped 2 Death (Unofficial Addendum)

For those of you who, like me, grew up in the 1980s -- or, also like me, you've conducted research into late-70s/mid-to-late-80s underground music -- some of these bands will be familiar. But the vast majority of them will not.

It should be noted, that 80s Nuggets: Hyped 2 Death (Unofficial Addendum) has absolutely nothing to do with the Nuggets comps, nor the fantastic Hyped 2 Death series of DIY CDs. In fact, this is not even a real collection; as such, there are no covers. I had to make up my own (as cassettes).

Presumably, this was put together by some mad music fan out there, who painstakingly gathered up all his/her favorite no-hit wonders from around the world, from that wonderfully-creative underground musical era between 1978 and 1990.

This, seemingly, has most of the musical genres that could be found in the "Alternative Music" realm: Alt-Rock, Punk Rock, Goth Rock, New Wave, Alt-Country, Neo-Folk... With 4 CDs (or Cassettes, as I've labeled them) and 91 songs, this would have made a great Box Set for those loners, geeks and misanthropes who populated every high-school hall in the 80s.
