I was looking through blogs and found this. Its a split tape by OUTRAGE and  DIMINISHED RETURN. Outrage being one of my friend Robert(Rob the Rich)Minnaar's old bands. He played in Clandestine, Outrage, Skelm Helm, and Hasten the Storm before moving to Israel. Outrage focused mostly on animal rights from what he played me when he was here last. ...Its late so I'm just gonna do a copy and past from the "Tape Blog". I will give a link to the blog so folks can take a look at it. there are some rad mp3's albums ripped from tapes up there.


"This tape was in a pile of gems that Devon placed in my care for a while, and since I know Devon as I do, I was not surprised at all to find this South African split cassette amongst the heap of Bay Area thrash metal and South American pop punk. OUTRAGE are female fronted anarcho-crust, and their three songs would have fallen right in line with bands of the same ilk making similar sounds in the US or Europe around the same time (1995), but with a drummer who seems like he'd rather be in a metal band (a pairing that works well for the most part).

With OUTRAGE I only have a lyric sheet to go on, but unfortunately the only tool at my disposal to help with DIMINISHED RETURN is a little friend I like to call "google." Also from South Africa, they farmed members off to THREE CHORD THEORY after their demise (I know this only through the website of the Malaysian band CARBURETOR DUNG), and created classic punk. "Jungle Jive" is a pure burner, and will rev your inner pogo machine to maximum RPMs (and help you recover from the flute laced first track that left you all confused inside). Great shit, with a subtle ska flare that doesn't detract in the slightest. I wish I had more from both bands to offer, but three apiece will have to suffice." -
