The Terrorists (complete recordings)

The New York City band The Terrorists released a collection of their complete recordings from 1977-1982 on a cd compilation called "Forces" but that compilation was incomplete. Although the song "I Want Justice" (a cover of the Delroy Wilson song from 1965) was included on the cd and featured Lee Perry and Roland Alphonso, there was another version (a live version) which saw an actual vinyl release in 1980. The song Justice was recorded at Max's Kansas City and was released with a studio recording of a song called Riis Park which was also not on the cd.

"Riis Park"

This download includes the 7" as well as the "Forces" cd, and the original version of "I Want Justice" by Delroy Wilson (with the Wailers as his band).

The Pin Baskets - 30,000 Rabbits 7'' (1984)

The Pin Baskets released one full length in 1986 called Fifteen Minutes with Betty Betz and they contributed two live songs for the compilation album Punk, Live in Brouwershoeck which featured punk and heavy metal bands, mainly from Holland recorded live in1982 in Leeuwarden.

 Here's a video for the song "Never the Same" from their full-length

...and HERE's the song "Does it Matter?" from the live compilation.

They were a great band but this is the only thing they did that had a ska influence. If you can find a copy of this, grab it. It's hard to come by.

I don't have the Betty Betz album yet, but I did include both songs form the comp in this download.

A - 30,000 Rabbits
B - Glad to be Different
* Does it Matter (live)
* Hate and Fear (live)

"30,000 Rabbits"
