Here's the Greenhouse of Terror 12" that I first mentioned about a year ago (sure, like anyone remembers that), one that I originally fished out of the used bin at Rhymes Records in New Haven around '86/'87 for maybe three bucks or so. This was back when you could buy almost anything from Australia and reasonably expect that it was gonna be great, even more so if it had a certain pedigree (Citadel, Aberrant, Waterfront, etc.). In this case, the Foetus and Black Flag t-shirts on the back cover were enough of a clue that Greenhouse of Terror were worthy of a measly three dollars, or that they had a decent sense of humor at least.
All in all, this is one of my favorite records from that time, and not just for the way that I casually stumbled upon it, or for the old-school press type lettering on the back cover with that casual Aussie slant to it ("noises onto tape", yes). The two songs on the a-side make up a couple of the best back-to-back songs you'll ever find on a 12-inch: "Compulsion", which davey-lopes along in a way reminiscent of The Fall, and the spastic "Now She's Shakin'", which is about as close as any favorite song of mine is ever going to get to sounding like the fucking Hoodoo Gurus.
