A COMPENDIUM OF WOMEN IN PUNK ROCK MUSIC 1977 – 1989 PART I & II

This is a pretty insane project put together by a friend Vincent B. from San Francisco many years back. As the title indicates, this mix is a collection from a homemade 12 x CD-R compilation of women in punk from 1977 to 1989. More like a giant mixtape than a compilation, as he only made 36 copies which he sent to friends and people who submitted material. You may notice that some of the bands didn’t have a steady female vocalist (The Lewd, etc.) but he still included songs that were sung by women in the band. This is as international as it gets, with stuff ranging from Blondie or Crass to the most obscure Eastern European cassette compilation veterans. The boxset came packaged in a handnumbered fancy translucent lunchbox enclosing all 12 CD-Rs, a stack of full-colored cards featuring comprehensive tracklist and artwork/info, as well as a manga pin-up figure! A true undertaking. Soundcloud only lets me upload 6 and a half hour mixes at a time so this is PART I. I will eventually post a track listing [for everything on this site] at www.w-orm.org. If you are dying to know, email me and I will send you the text file of everything.

Or try to find them in this list of the tracks by CDr : www.ormolycka.com/PONX.rtf

Please enjoy this one, it took me a super ridiculous fun long time to re-master, fix the corrupt files and mix them all together. THAT IS THE STAGE OF QUARANTINE THAT I AM AT. I really miss my daughter and can’t wait for if/when she is a punk she finds this treasure trove of bad fucking ass role models that are cooler and older than her own parents.
