A compilation on Holocaust Tapes, done by Will Binks from South Shields (England, UK). A tape from Geert ‘Mokka’ Mokwinski’s collection…
Basically, in 1982 I did 2 issues of Hate & War fanzine with my cousin Paul Briggs. By the end of 82 and beginning of 83 I started a new venture, Still Dying, with my mate Gary Payne. We did 3 issues and 1 compilation-tape, Yes, You Guessed It! (the title was a reference to every other zine putting out tapes). Still Dying came to an end but I still wanted to contribute to our scene as I was an enthusiastic writer and I was in contact with many, many people so I put out the Eject It! compilation and a tape by the Danish band ‘Enola Gay’ before calling it a day.

review in Maximum Rock’n’Roll
The ‘Political Asylum’ tracks are from the first demo Fresh Hate [recorded spring 1983].
I’m on those ‘Political Asylum’ tracks, recorded when I was thirteen. I wrote the lyrics to those songs too. System Of War was written for the band I was in before: ‘Toxic Noise’. There’s some photos online from the third ever ‘P.A.’ gig and there’s a full recording of that gig at Mayfield Centre, St Ninians, Stirling 83-07-04.
