These tapes were sent to ‘Stel’ Steven R. by Helge Schreiber. The people playing in the band were Helge (vocals; Plastic Bomb fanzine), ‘Schmiddi’ Micks Makkelsen (guitar), Mattes Nau (bass), Klaus Schulzki (drums). They lived in the Ruhrpott area. Some of the tracks appeared on their Live At C.B.G.B.’s N.Y.C. 7″, others on the split-LP with ‘The Wheeze’.

The Orlando Tattoo Squad cassette was reviewed in MRR as follows: “A live recording with surprisingly good sound quality. These guys plaw powerful punk [thrash] of all speeds, with lyrics ranging from silly to serious. Overall, thumbs up!”. Their musical examples were ‘R.K.L.’, ‘Beyond Possession’ & ‘Unwanted Youth’…


Our song Hopeless (Radical Skate) had the introductory guitar-riff of a song by ‘Vicious Circle’…
