This compilation was put out by the ever-stellar Secret Center Records out of Sacramento, CA. In the 90's, they specialized in putting out one-off cassingles by local bands that stayed together for at least 45 minutes. This compilation showcases some of Sacto's finest (?) bands and, inexplicably, looks outside of their insular scene at bands from other states....but only like, one or two of them. Appearances are made by the always entertaining BANANAS, NAR (who deliver my favorite line of theirs "Why is that picture of me taped back together?"), CAPTAIN 9's AND THE KNICKERBOCKER TRIO, LOS HUEVOS and more. If you're into any of the aforementioned bands or just have any interest in the pure nerdiness of the 90's Sacto scene, I'm sure you are already downloading this.
I ordered this tape from Secret Center at some point in the 90's and it took them a full 3 YEARS to send it to me! I called them a few times and even sent my new address every time I moved. I thought I would never actually get it. Three bucks down the drain. Then, one day it finally showed up with an apology letter and I've been loving it ever since.
