MAXIMUM RABBIT - V/A (Canada)


MAXIMUM RABBIT - The Second FacePlant Compilation Tape
-CS
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.

FACEPLANT IN A NUTSHELL:



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.
