Northwest Hardcore

Another landmark of 1988 in Portland music was the Northwest Hardcore (and More) cassette compilation. Produced by Resist's Ward Young, the compilation was heavy on Portland bands (the Obituaries, Wehrmacht, Final Warning, and more) but also noteworthy for featuring early material from the Melvins and Mr. Bungle. Mark Landers, who released the tape ("dubbed one at a time") on his Media Blitz label (and who, also in 1988, hosted a cable access-esque program entitled "Who's Who" that featured a hilarious interview with the bratty boys in Sweaty Nipples), explains the music scene 20 years back: "Kids were spoiled in the '90s, but back then, and now, they have something to actually rebel against." - 1988 The year in Portland music (Portland Mercury)
