The Crystal Set [U.K.] - Know How 7" (1981)

This is probably the only thing released by this band. Not to be confused with the Australian band of the same name. Both sides are ska.

A - Know How
B - Critical Town

The Ventilators - SKA live cassette demo (1991) [UPDATED LINK]

The Swiss band The Ventilators really is one of my favorite bands. They're right up there with Mr. Review. This tape was recorded when they first started out and it shows how amazing they were from the beginning. From what I know there were less than 100 copies of this tape made and the number of them that exist today is God's own private mystery. There are four songs on it and none of them were ever recorded in the studio. The only way to ever hear these songs is from this tape. Unfortunately my copy is warped pretty badly. I tried my best to adjust the sound to make it listenable but the sound quality sucks. Nothing I can do about it.

Most of you will want to skip this one, but Ventilators fans will truly appreciate it.


La banda suiza The Ventilators es una de mis bandas favoritas. Están ahí arriba con Mr. Review. Esta cinta fue grabada cuando comenzaron por primera vez y muestra lo increíble que eran desde el principio. Por lo que sé, hubo menos de 100 copias de esta cinta hecha y el número de las que existen hoy en día es el misterio privado de Dios. Hay cuatro canciones en él y ninguno de ellos fueron grabados en el estudio. La única manera de oír estas canciones es de esta cinta. Por desgracia, mi copia está muy deformada. He intentado mi mejor para ajustar el sonido para que sea audible, pero la calidad del sonido es una mierda. No puedo hacer nada al respecto.

La mayoría de ustedes querrán saltarse éste, pero los ventiladores de los Ventilators apreciarán verdad.
