Between going back-to-school-shopping, doing laundry, migrating my son's bedroom furniture down the hall into another room, watching the Giants game (sucked), trying to figure out what to make for dinner, etc. I found the time to go through my hard-drive, and I found what may be a complete discography for Madison, WI's finest hardcore band. There's also some live shit on here - possibly ripped it from VHS, who knows - but it fucking rips.

I'm pretty sure this was something I grabbed off Soulseek - from whom I'm not sure, but thank you for compiling this - as it is a must-have for any Midwestern HC purist!

While this may not be the greatest-sounding collection out there, you should remember that THIS IS REAL hardcore - no rules apply, son. Once you get your head around that, sit back and revel in the unparalleled chaos that was Mecht Mensch.

There's a (million) reason(s) bands like this didn't/couldn't last, all YOU have to do is L-I-S-T-E-N.
