V/A-Test Patterns CD
BDR is proud to bring you a reissue of the classic Test Patterns compilation album; originally released by Jet Lag Magazine's John the Mailman in 1981. Although obscure outside of the area due to a lack of national distribution upon its initial release, the compilation is known to early Punk/Indie record collectors and some clued in music historians. Test Patterns features two songs each by seven independent bands from the St. Louis area: The Felons, The Mopeds, The Strikers, Swift Kick, The Oozkicks, Trained Animal and The Zanti Misfits. The songs range from poppy Punk to Power Pop to hard-edged New Wave, with a couple bands even giving a nod to the 2 Tone revival of the day. Remastered from the original tapes and issued on compact disc for the first time ever! Liner notes by Steve Pick of Jet Lag Magazine and Jason Ross of BDR Records.
