VA: No Cause For Alarm LP (1981, Plectrum Records)

DIY UK compilation from the early 80's featuring a lot of obscurities. Possibly the best known band is likely to be Yesterdays Parties who also appear on the "In Colour / Music By Numbers" LP compilation from the same year along with bands like Sea of Wires and Phil Brammer that you can find over at Mutant Sounds. The majority of the bands on this one would fall under the generic tags of post-punk, indie / alternative rock, power pop, etc... but check out the sound sample to hear the tracks I thought were the highlights.
