Peaceville celebrates their 21st birthday by releasing this label sampler with choice cuts of some of their best and most well-known bands.
In a backwards chronologic kind of way. Which is neat. Not every song here is a slamdunk (Madder Mortem is fucking hideous) but I include all the tracks anyway, just for the sake of it.
The older stuff, especially Doom and Electro Hippies are pure gold, children. I bet some of you weren't even born back when they produced aural mayhem that bands today are still trying to recreate.
