In an event, the Bums rather raucous contribution "Initial Explosion..." harkens back a bit to Twin/Tone-era Soul Asylum, and as far as I know remains exclusive to this disk. The Wicked Ones, Confidentials, and Blubinos offer slightly differing variations of garage/bar-rock. Crackerbash (as previously noted on these pages) conjure up a slice of fuzzy, noisenik goodness that never made it onto their albums or singles.
The Whirlees "Didn't Bat an Eye" is a long-winded, seven-minute number, that's eventually worth the time invested. "Indecision Sure," courtesy of The Webbers, is a hardy riff-rocker that somehow manages to bridge the divide between George Thorogood and The Smithereens. Cacophonous, cult faves the Hellcows draw I-5 Killers to a close. There would be second and third sequals in the I-5 compilation series, both of which are available from CD Baby. This initial installment appears to be vinyl only.
