I got around 100 copies of this compilation tapes there is no cactus details inside the sleeve. All the songs feature had been released and all the bands feature were really active within the Malaysian HC/punk scene around 1995- 2000. And this is kinda documentation of good old Malaysian bands. Bands feature are 1. Plea For Peace (brilliant Anarcho punk band with good lyrics), 2. non priority (old school Hardcore), 3. FSF (Live track from this melodic punk rock band), 4. Second Combat (sxe old school Hardcore), 5. 76 seconds (Swedish hardcore with a metallic riffing), 6. Minor society (fast and good), 7.Silent Majority (a live track from this raw punk bands), 8. Innerfall ( emotional outfit. Song taken from their last tape "remain the same"), 9. Kind (hardcore), and 10. Distrust Is Abuse (hc/punk). The tape come out with a DIY as hell small and cute booklet.
