This is names don't matter comp tape

Back in the 80's there were  a lot of people releasing compilation tapes. It was something not too hard to do and also did not cost a lot of money. Most of the tapelabels were run by just one person or a small group of friends. Tape comps were the cheapest way for bands to get known and have their music released to a wide audience, because tape-dubbing was something we ALL did at that time.
There were a lot of classic compilations released over the years, the Bad Compilation tapes is just one example and I think the Holland Hardcore series deserve to be mentioned too. Thanks to compilation tapes like XCentric and the likes, we got to know bands such as Huvudtvätt and other classic bands from the eighties, too many to mention.
The tape that I have uploaded is done by 'My smile is a mask' tapes which was linked to a zine called 'Names don't matter'. This comp was done in 1985.
First off we have S.C.A. from Amsterdam. They started as Staphorster Chaoten Alliantie but changed their name to Strong Concentration of Anger after that. Released a 12" and a few tracks on the 'Beware of the wolf in sheep's clothing' 12". I think the stuff on this compilation is all previously released, but I am not 100% sure. Since the guitarplayer's daughter is on the school I run, I will ask Rob if he remembers this tape.
Murder Inc. III hails from Heerenveen and has been featured in this blog previously. Also not sure if their songs on this tape have been released previously. They have just created a facebook page too where you can see a lot of photos and flyers as well as videos of very recent pratices. Are they re-uniting? Murder inc facebook page
Fishtown HC is a band from Germany (as far as I am told) and that is about all the info I can give you on them.
Jack in the Box is a one-man project done bij Sjak van Brussel, he is also responsible for some compilation tapes himself. Sjak also runs Antenna record store in Tilburg and still plays in Lewd (the Dutch one that is). I would describe Jack in the Box as a young Big Black.
