VA - Rising From The Ashes Cassette - 1984

Pretty rare Cassette released on Rites Tapes who were based in Auckland, New Zealand. This is a pretty good snapshot of what was happening in the NZ scene back in the 80’s. The guys behind the label were also responsible for the “One World” ‘zine that was a great insight to global and domestic punk. Geoff Cartwright also released or licensed international tape on the Rites tapes label from the likes of Political Asylum, Cult Maniax, Subhumans and more.

A big thanks to Paul (Battery Hen Cassettes) for lending these to me.

NZ homework done! I dig K4's softer approach... and Rex the Fish for the end was refreshing outro. Tracks by Corrective Training and 5 Year Mission are a bit too similar to my ears, would have been better comp with less songs by each of them. Now Vol 2! Cheers
