Ten By Ten – a compilation of Cork bands (1995)


Ten By Ten Volume One is a compilation of unsigned Cork bands released by the Cork Music Resource Co-op (CMRC) in 1995. It features one track each from Inhaler, Manhole, Starchild, Kidminister, Boa, Guru, Sander, The Orange Fettishes, Special Love Brigade and Lunatic Fringe. Thanks to the Cork Zine Archive for tracking down a copy.
