It’s Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #59, featuring a wild eighty minutes of primitivism, angularism and meatballism as well as top tracks from today’s and yesterday’s hottest young bands.

Starting with a roar from hott new Oakland ear-grinders RAYS and continuing from there, DH #59 is an unrelenting set of molten indie rokk. You’ll hear some of your very favorites – from HONEY RADAR to SCORCHED EARTH POLICY – from ALASTAIR GALBRAITH to the CHEATER SLICKS – from PUSSYCAT TRASH to TEX & THE HORSEHEADS. All top-shelf crap.

XPRESSWAY were the darker, more experimental record label cousin of New Zealand’s Flying Nun. Operating out of Port Chalmers  on the South Island, Xpressway was originally a late 80s/early 90s cassette label and later branched into singles and LPs. They were a real cult taste there for a while, putting out early moody, shape-shifting sounds from the Dead C, Alastair Galbraith, the Terminals and more.

This ad came from Siltbreeze magazine #6 around 1990 or so. (Yes, before Siltbreeze was a raunched-out music fanzine before it was a label). Tom Lax from Siltbreeze was probably Xpressway’s biggest US-based champion; I’d certainly never heard of the label before he started yakking about them and running cool ads like this one.
