SACRED SHOCK - S/T EP (2008)

 If you dug that Sacred Shock 12" I posted the other day, you might like this 7" a bit more. At least I did anyways. 'Planet Decay' is a straight up banger in my books.

SACRED SHOCK - You're Not With Us LP (2009)

 A buddy of mine was selling a bunch of records for cheap so being the nice guy that I am, I took some off his hands for him. This LP was in that pile. I never heard these guys before, but I thought I'd give 'em a shot. They hailed from Austin Texas and featured members of Iron Age, Insect Warfare, Mammoth Grinder, Vaasa, etc...

STATE - Sanctimony EP (2008)

 To prove their 2006 return album 'All Wrong' wasn't just a one off, State kept the ball rollin' with this banger. If you're not hooked by the opening riff on the title track then... I don't know what to tell you.

TRAGIEDIA - Punk 'Til Destruction LP (2015)


Like many bands from Poland in the 80's, Tragiedia never released a record during their existence. But did they record a couple demos, which were compiled here on vinyl decades later. I may have the track listing wrong on this rip as side A has twelve songs but the back cover, label and lyric sheet shows thirteen. So I'm not sure which track is missing as the lyrics are sung in Polish. I even tried comparing the songs to Post Regiment's covers from their 'TRAGIEDIA WG POST REGIMENT' tribute record. So your guess is as good as mine.

VA - Jak Punk To Punk LP (1987)

This comp is just chock full of hits! Great place to start if you're unfamiliar with early Polish punk.

REASON OF INSANITY - S/T LP (2005)

 A little late to the party when it comes to these guys but hey, better late than never. I was familiar with their name through guitarist Josh Wolf's other projects Secret Prostitutes and Bloody Hammer. Listening to this record takes kinda me back to going to all ages shows in the 90's and early 00's. I definitely would've bought their tape or record at the merch table after their set.
 Side one was recorded in 2001 and was originally intended to be on a split LP with Direct Control. Side two recorded in '03. With 26 songs clocking in at 37 minutes, this LP does feel like a double album by hardcore standards.

VA - Solidarity Across Borders Vol. 1 tape (2019)

Here's a killer mixtape featuring some of your favourite current bands from around around the world. And by around the world I mean mostly Canada and South America. Whatevs.

BILL BONDSMEN / OUT COLD - Split EP (2007)

 Solid offering from both bands on this 7". And that's all I have to say about that.

BAD SKIN - S/T EP (2013)

 Don't really know anything about this band except that they were from Toronto and one of the dudes went on to play in Hassler. You'll like it.

ELECTROCUTIONER - The Blood Of The Pig Must Flow In The Street EP (2015)

Thought I had posted everything by this act ages ago, guess not. Originally released on cassette in 2014, this was ripped from the remixed 'n' remastered vinyl reissue that came out the year after.

VA - Thank You For The Music CD (????)

 Bootleg CD of mid 80's Dutch HC (except for Rapt, who are French). Not sure when this was released but I assume it was before most of these records were officially reissued in some shape or form.

ELECTRIC DEADS - Mind Bomb EP (1983)

 Third and final 7" by these Danes. You'll recognize 'Fish In A Pool' from the "Welcome To 1984" comp. Ripped from the 2010 reissue.


May 7, 2020

ATTANAS - Joulupukki EP (1987)

Decent Finnish punk from the late 80's. Nothing amazing but not terrible either I guess.


May 2, 2020

POLIISIVALTIO - Fuck Your Discos LP (2006)


Overlooked Finnish HC from the 80's whose material was only previously available on cassette.



April 27, 2020

VA - For A Fistful Of Yens! CD (1994)

 German comp of punk/HC from the 80's and 90's. Loads of hits on this bad boy right here.

FINAL CONFLICT - S/T EP (1983)

This is the Minneapolis band, not the long running California one. Too bad these guys didn't release anything else because this 7" shreds. And yes, it was produced by THAT Bob Mould. Ripped from 2010 reissue. 

April 16, 2020

VA - Alle 24 Goed! LP (1985)

I picked up this Belgian comp last time I was in a record store. Man, that seems so long ago. Sigh...

SPARKMARKER - Live tape (1991)

Another one from that pile of local tapes I scored last year. To be honest, I'm not really too familiar with Sparkmarker's catalog so I didn't splice up the songs individually. The flip side of the cassette is labelled 'blank side' but there's actually a whole other live show recorded much quieter. So I beefed up the volume and like side A, digitized it as one big long track.

ELECTRIC DEADS - S/T EP (1982)

Another banger from Denmark. Their first of 3 7"s they released. Ripped from the 2010 reissue. Someone on Youtube described them as sounding like Poly Styrene fronting Government Issue. Fair assessment I think. 

April 8, 2020

ENOLA GAY - 1982-84 LP (2004)

Young, fast & snotty Danish HC. You might remember them from their appearance on 'Cleanse The Bacteria'. Well here's everything they recorded.
