Pitfall/Six Minute War (tape, Finger In The Dike hole 001, 1981)
I picked up a new tape deck, well second hand, but hardly used and decided to try this tape again, which failed before. I still don't know if the tape is warped on the first 4 Pitfall tracks on my copy, or whether that is a defect on the master. These are the first recordings by this Dutch punk band, of whom we posted a 7" before. A bit like The Ex/Rondos, and actually quite nice. On the other side, undindexed, there is a live recording by Six Minute War. a London punk band. Both sides aren't the best in the world of recording quality. This release started the Finger In The Dike label, and is really one of the few punk releases on that label.
