'U.K.H.C. - A Compilation', as the name suggests, is a compilation CD promoting the British HC scene. Released in 1997 on Household Name Records, it features 15 bands from all over the UK, with most bands doing 2 songs. Some of the bands on here are Stampin' Ground (who do an Inside Out cover on here, 'By A Thread'), Knuckledust, Ninebar (who had just formed a few months before recording their tracks for this compilation), Imbalance, Freebase, Consume (great hardcore from Northern Ireland) and Medulla Nocte. Overall a sweet compilation with a bunch of early recordings of some great UKHC bands. I picked up this CD at the All Ages Records store in Camden, London a few years ago. This independent punk/hardcore record store was co-founded by Lil & Katherine, the people behind Household Name Records (they're not involved with the store anymore tho). Which reminds me: support independent record stores, they're a dying breed unfortunately.
