EVE Recordings Volume One - was a budget price compilation CD, released in February 1993 to showcase the EVE Recordings roster.
Original Sleeve Notes:
Conceived and gestated in the grimy back room of the Camden Falcon in London, EVE Recordings was finally brought, mewling and puking, into the world in the Autumn of 1990 - with the release of MILK's debut ep 'Birthquake'. In just over two years we have clocked up nearly twenty releases by the aforementioned MILK, The God Machine, Headcleaner, Some Have Fins, Spitfire, Scissormen, Altamont Speedway, and obtained American licenses for Crazy Alice and Monster Zero.
The last couple of years have been a long and ardous battle - twice we have been hit by our distributors in the U.K. and Europe going bankrupt, and several times we have come very close to going under. In the end it's all been worthwhile though, because we've managed to release some excellent records by bands who might not otherwise have achieved the recognition they deserve.
This compilation cd represents some personal favourite tracks from our releases, along with the recording debut of Rosa Mota and a previously unreleased song by Some Have Fins. It is intended as a taster for those of you who may not be familiar with the label - and we hope you'll find something you like.
