KLAXON - 1984 LP (2013)

Catchy and melodic OI! from Italy. This record compiles their entire  January 1984 recording session which includes their self titled 7" from that year, some compilation cuts and a few unreleased songs.

DAMAGES - Reality Disease EP (2013)

This 7" somehow slipped under my radar when it first came out. They also put out a great demo tape the year before and appeared on the East 7th Punx and Night Kills You comps. A few members play in Prison Postumo and Tozcos.
1. Vatican Rats
2. Not Another Day
3. Disease Called Reality
4. Purgatory
5. What's Left For Us

ELECTROCUTIONER - 5 Trax Demo EP (2016)

Remixed and remastered vinyl version of their debut demo tape recorded in 2012. Started out as a one man project and are now a full live band I believe.

TOZCOS - Mexico Promo tape (2018)

Promo tape from Tozcos' recent Mexico tour featuring 4 cuts from their brand new album "Sueños Deceptivos". Listen to the entire record below, then buy it! No doubt this will be in my Top 10 for 2018.
1. Sangre Roja, Sangre Tuya
2. Lagrimas Injustas
3. Ritmo De La Muerte
4. Es Mi Vida

MEDIA DISEASE - Hit And Run 2XEP (1990)

Here's an early DCHC band that doesn't really get talked about. Probably because they didn't have a record out on Dischord, or a record out at all for that matter. According to this bootleg double 7", all of these songs were recorded 06/12/82 at Hit And Run Studios (hence the title). Sounds like two different recording sessions to me. The only official release these guys appeared on was the 'Mixed Nuts Don't Crack' comp LP from '83, so that's on here and the rest I'm assuming is their demo.

VA - The Street Enters The House CD (2000)

Another one of them there Fans Of Bad Productions compilations. Somehow I missed this one when it first came out. Some heavy stuff on here, kids. Thanks again to Chris Iller for hooking me up with it when he sent me the Black Market Fruits CD last year.

Sunday April 22nd at 3PM PST will be the return of my punk/HC radio show 'The Jimmy Heartburn Experience' (formerly known as the Jimmy Heartburn Show). This time I have a mic and will attempt to talk between songs, wish me luck! You can check it out on STRANGER RADIO or through the Mixlr app.

2. Darkened Shapes
3. Tuned Out
4. Brain Sick

CHRONIC SEIZURE - Brainsick EP (2006)

Killer mid-00's HC from Chicago. They also put out another 7" and a 12", but this one is my personal fave of theirs.

April 6, 2018


This Sunday April 8th at 3PM Pacific Standard Time, I'll be dropping a mixtape of HC and punk on my friend's new internet radio station STRANGER RADIO. You can also hear it through the Mixlr app. No ads, no dead air and best of all, no talking...just tunes!

VA - All For One... One For All CD (1995)

This comp was put together to help pay Roger Miret's medical bills after he screwed up his back at a Madball show back in the mid 90's. You'd think this would be chock full of NYHC, but there's really a wide range of bands from just about everywhere but New York (with the exception of Heart Attack).

TERMINAL STATE - Panic Attack EP (2004)

Second 7" by this TOHC band. You know these guys because I've posted them on here before, remember? Four songs in just under 3 and half minutes. DIG IT!

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.

February 11, 2018

VA - Propaganda Hardcore '83 CD (1996)

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

M.A.P. - Kaasua EP (1982)

Like Evulaatio, Maanalainen Pelastusarmeija (M.A.P. for short) were another lesser-known Finnish band that only released one 7" during their short existence. If the first song sounds familiar, that's because it's a reworking of 'Police Story' by The Partisans. According to google translate "kaasua" is Finnish for "gas", so I'm guessing the song isn't a story about police. Ripped from the 2005 reissue.

VA - Killed By Finnish Hardcore LP (2003)

I've been listening to a lot of Suomipunk as of late so I thought this month will be all Finland all February! A good place to start is this bootleg sampler, chock full of killer tracks by the heavyweights of the country as well as lesser known bands that only appeared on a comp or two back in the day. Done by the same guys who put out Killed By Hardcore, so you know it's good.

DESPERATE MINDS - A Chance To Feel Emotions Alive EP (1986)

This week's post comes to us from Kamloops, the same town that brought us Inner Anger and Sineater. I think these guys were into 7 Seconds, but I could be wrong. They also put out a demo tape and an LP, which you know I'll post on here if I ever come across 'em. 
1. Hype
2. Do Your Part
3. Prey T.V.
4. Do You Remember 
5. I Care Too Much To Quit
