General Comments
28 Tales From The Pit - This 35-track (that's right, a storming 35 tracks!) punk-hardcore-ska compilation packs in a massive 35 different bands, mostly from Germany, displaying a whole range of different punk and related styles. The styles range from old school hardcore to punkrock to ska to some more New York sounding bands to Reggae. Some of the bands the compilation proudly boasts are the punkrockers 'Badtown Boys' from California, the SkaCore band 'Body Bag' from Switzerland, the Ska-Rocksteady 'Filibusters' from Chicago, the New School band 'Apathy' from the USA, the hardcore Italian 'Quicknoize,' the ex-Final Conflict members from the USA in '46 Short,' the USA Reggae band 'Half Pint,' and the Brazilian Old School band 'Jason.'

Released through Horror Business Records, this 2001 release is packed with band photos and an address for contacting the various bands. All the tracks are well-produced and the compilation has been put together with some thought. Hearing all the different styles together gives a refreshing viewpoint of the scenes involved. Some nice moments are having the Reggae track of 'Half Pint' followed by the screaming anger filled nature of 'Apathy'.

The tracklisting is as follows:

1. Badtown Boys - Get Ahead

2. Not Enough - Side By Side

3. Jason - Marra De Cao

4. Slup - Loosin'
5. Kafkas - Lebensrezeptur
