'80s Nuggets: Hyped 2 Death Unofficial Addendum - Vol. 1 (Redux)

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 real covers. Someone in the vast cyber-universe has created them.

Presumably, this is the same mad music fan 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 8 CDs, 188 songs and more than ten hours worth of music, this would have made a great Box Set for those loners, geeks and misanthropes who populated every high-school hall in the 80s.

Hi - and nicely done. That RIchard Barone LP is one of my desert island disks! (As you've probably figured out, that Bowie cover is Richard's loving nod to Paul Buckmaster who first substituted cello for bass guitar on the MWSTW LP...)
