VA - Killed By Death Vol. 40 LP (1998)

Like it says on the cover, "strictly no english or american junk". Interesting bootleg comp of rare late 70's to early 80's punk rock, new wave and power pop from countries you may not have even expected from in that time period. Most of the groups on here are European, but South Africa and Argentina are also in the house. The reason I bought this record was for the two songs by Fræbbblarnir, one of Iceland's first punk bands (if not the first). I stumbled upon one of their gigs when I was in Reykjavik back in 2013 and thought they were amazing for a band that looked like a bunch of old college professors. I checked out all the local record shops for any of their back catalog, but no avail. But they aren't the only great band on here. I think my favourite song on this LP is 'Gilmore 77' by Spain's TNT. Amazing bass line!

SOCIALCIDE - Sick Of The Pressure EP (2007)

Since I just posted this band's awesome 'Burn In Hell Bundy' 7-inch, I figured I may as well post their equally awesome demo. Originally released on cassette in 2006, this is from the vinyl version that came out a year after. They even pay homage to fellow Virginians White Cross with a cover of 'Jump Up'.
1. No End
2. Another Headache
3. Your Lost Cause
4. Morning Disaster
5. Sick Of The Pressure
6. World Of Hate
7. Jump Up
