GUILTY FACES - Nightmares EP (2008)

Catchy little 3 song ripper from this long defunct Connecticut band. These guys had the early 80's west coast punk sound down pretty good. The title track reminds me of Decry a bit. They also released an album on Deranged Records the year after.
1. Nightmares
2. Hospital Eyes
3. Scum

VA - Bud Luxford Presents: LP (1981)

Okay, let's take a break from Finnish punk (for now) and get back to some Canadian content. This comp is a who's who of the early Vancouver punk rock scene featuring members of D.O.A., Subhumans, Pointed Sticks, Dishrags, Modernettes, Young Canadians and more playing under pseudonyms. After searching for years in local record shops for it, I finally bit the bullet and bought a near mint copy online that wasn't TOO expensive. They released another record the year after with some of the same acts and a few new ones, which I posted five years ago HERE

VA - Full Speed Ahead CD (2003)

Okay, what better way to end Finnish February than with a comp of classic Finnish 7"s from the mid 80's? You'd almost never know it's a bootleg because the sound quality on it is great. Enjoy!

TAMPERE SS - Kuollut & Kuopattu EP (1983)

Originally released in 1983 as a demo tape and later reissued on vinyl in the late 90's. Some of these songs were used for compilations, most notably 'Hardcore 83'. I'm guessing the band felt they had to put 'Anti-Nazi' on the cover because the SS in their name?

VA - Propaganda Russia Bombs Finland LP (1982)

Another classic comp. Some might even call it Finland's 'Flex Your Head'. Or maybe just me. Ripped from the 1995 CD reissue.

Classic comp originally released in 1983. Ripped from the '96 CD reissue that includes the then-unreleased Vaurio EP, 'Sortoa Ja Vainoa'.
