Description: "You wanna know what's up? The first song on this comp is "Dustcloud (Party Mix)" by a band called DESTRUCTOS. Not sold? There's a cover of "Thru The Flowers" (the second-best song on Lovely, for those paying attention), and if you didn't already love the Kansas duo MR. & THE MRS. then check their track "Fuck Cops." Also, there's a KINKS cover by a band called THE CINKS. Damaged garage/indie monsters, supremely damaged synth-drenched dancefloor slammers, and a band called FREAK GENES. If you need something from an isolation-inspired compilation, then I'm not sure if there's hope for you. I mean, sure, a little kång would be nice, but it's not that kind of comp....

And because label samplers are designed to make you get horny for the label - I would be remiss if I didn't mention the new DESTRUCTOS tape and the VIRVON VARVON that came out a while back. Plus the ruthless JOY tape...Girlsville is kinda killing it. So get horny."--TERMINAL ESCAPE

"This one is all over the place, and I’m all over it. Pulsating ’80s hard industrial dance, ’90s grunge punk dirges, stripped-down art-punk, a stunning PRIMITIVES cover, outsider electro-pop, bombastic nasty garage punk…this comp just fukkn grabs you and then slams from start to finish. Highlights include the MAXINES, FREAK GENES, THREX, ADULKT LIFE, and GERM HOUSE, but it’s the whole damn thing that deserves your attention."--Robert Collins, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL

"Paid By Rock" was compiled during the first half of 2021 during pandemic isolation, and on the cusp of whatever it is the future holds.
