In the early to mid 90s, Big O Magazines helps to widen my scope not only on music but also life.
It helps that there are great contests with great prizes with every issue haha..
I remember winning what was a quite rare cd by one of the grunge bands, I forget what band, the one with babies on the cover ( no not Nirvana ), I just gave it away to a friend cause he like it (and I dont get it haha) and he cant get it at the shops, in exchange he gave me a 'rock mampos' cd. Typical.
Whatever the contents on Big O, you can be sure the write-ups are interesting, informative and passionate and drags me to read it.
Funny thing is I remember, not only was this magazine supports the local, alternative, hardcore, grunge, punk, new school, old school, etc,
but there was a very fair and interesting review on Iron Maiden's X Factor back then when it first came out. I think I still kept that issue. The rest of the magazines are gone with the wind..
But I still kept some of the cds I guess, because I came across this in one of my collection. Ooo the Padres single is still with me...
So this cd Lion City Hardcore is a sort of thing which is like "either you get it or you dont".
So if no one had seen the inlay to this legendary out of print cd, this is how all the inlays and lyrics of Lion City Hardcore - Together At Last looks like. It comes with Big O issue 88 in April 1993.
