MAXIMUM RABBIT - The Second FacePlant Compilation Tape
1996 (FacePlant Productions)

For a brief period (1995-1998), Vancouver's FacePlant rehearsal studio inflated into a full-blown music/arts collective. Taking its cue from New York's legendary ROIR label, the zany bunch created their own cassette label, producing 19 full-length releases from local bands that practised at FacePlant, along with one-of-a-kind live concerts, guerilla theatre, even a retail outlet that would seemingly materialize out of nowhere and vanish again leaving no visible trace.


As the collective grew, so did their capabilities, including videos and animation, and pioneering revolutionary methods of streaming video content that was actually *watchable* during the days of dialup 'Net access.

The entire tape catalog is SOLD OUT and no longer in print, and these days FacePlant has returned to its roots as a jam space.

Thank you ever so much for these Canadian selections, specially the Wyld Canada serie (so someone finally comped Willapuss Wallapuss!).

It seems we share a mutual passion. Drop by Patrimoine PQ, my blog devoted to obscure LPs/45 from Quebec. We just published our first comp (Resurrection! Vol. 1) featuring never rare & reissued xian folk-rock-psych from 1960-1982.
