Various – Tracks from the ‘1981’ Briefcase Disc, Part 5

Only a couple days late, here’s the 5th group of tracks from the ‘1981’ box set’s ‘Briefcase’ disc, from amongst 250 further bands and tracks not found in the nine themed mixes in the set. You can see previous installments and keep track of new ones with this tag.

Nearly rounding out the “B”s, the first two here I discovered via the music-geek Godfather at Hyped2Death and his ‘Messthetics’ and ‘Homework’ compilations: we’ve got a cute one-off bit of political satire Reagan-era style from Boom; and surprisingly catchy prophesying about a post-apocalyptic world, looking back on a Cold-War-gone-hot 1992, from the Bouncing Czechs.  Then there’s Burundi-lite from Bow Wow Wow, who’re fun and actually pretty innocent despite Malcolm McLaren’s best efforts at controversy; zany hyperactive goofiness from Braque; and a Philly take on Mutant Disco/no wave dance-punk from Bunnydrums, who’d later carry on the post-punk torch into moodier and less twitchy  territory.
