New Breed Website - 20 Years after the fact!


Hey DCXX readers, I wanted to take a minute and plug the website I've just set up for the New Breed tape, a compilation of 20 NYHC bands that I did with my good friend Chaka Malik, 20 years ago. This is a place where you can download the tape and booklet at no charge. There will also be a "Where are they now" Updates page, a flyer/photo/stickers gallery and recollections plus later on maybe Video and Live/Demo links. It's all still a work in progress so I appreciate any ideas or suggestions for the site. If any band members are reading this, please get in touch so that we can update your info. If any one has any problems downloading it, let us know and please sign the guestbook! Thanks for reading and the support,

Here's the link www.newbreedtapecomp.com.

From August of '87 until January of 2007, I listened to nothing but cassettes in the 4 cars that I drove during that period, so for that reason, they have a special place in my heart and always will. I haven't heard the New Breed tape comp yet but I am glad to see that the creators of it made a website for it in celebration of it's 20th anniversary.

R.I.P. cassettes.

I like this comp even more than The Way It Is or Where the Wild Things Are. This website is a great idea.

for a guy who makes a comment in every single post on this HARDCORE webzine, you should be pretty embarrased that you haven't heard the new breed tape comp yet'. it's only been out 20 years and is an absolute necessity if you aren't a poser. but man ice is awesome, and did you know there is a hardcore reunion this weekend??????!?!?!?!?

That's awesome! I still have my cassette copy I bought all those years ago in my tape box! I'll have to pull it out and see if it still plays.

Can someone please post the complete tracklisting, for some reason when i downloaded the songs they came up in a weird order and all under "new breed tape complilation" instead of the actual song names.
Thanks.
