svart framtid

SVART FRAMTID- 1984 ep (X-port Plater x001) ’84

From Oslo, Norway, SVART FRAMTID (black future) is another Norwegian band I know absolutely nothing about.

I sorta stumbled across the 7″ while looking for the awesome BANNLYST 7″ and I thought it was just as good, if not better than anything I had heard from Norway at that point. Other than this release, SVART FRAMTID were on a coulple of comps, one of which was “BLITZ – 10 ÅR PÅ PUR FAEN” cd which is a 10 year anniversry/benefit show for a Norwegian venue. The compilation featured live tracks from, among others, BANNLYST, BOYEN BENG and SO HUCH HATE. There is also an early demo that I hear someone is supposedly releasing with the bands permission?

Janky – Flexi 7″ ’86

My first post! I hope I didn’t fuck up! This is one of those 7″s I worship but sadly I know very little about the band. By posting this not only will people find out about the band but hopefully I will be able to learn something new about them. This excellent release reminds me much of Lip Cream and Outo records; perhaps some band that would fit right in with the Thrash Til Death compilation. Oh yea, I guess they have a split with the mighty Mad Conflux, but I haven’t heard that one yet.

Desmond Dekker the godfather of ska

Desmond Dekker – The Israelites

Probably no other Jamaican artist has brought more international acclaim to his island home than Desmond Dekker, barring, of course, Bob Marley, but Dekker came first. Most people’s introduction to the island’s unique musical sound came via the singer’s many hits, most notably “The Israelites” and “007 (Shanty Town).” Needless to say, he was even more influential in his homeland.

Desmond Dekker died on Wed May 25 2006 at the age of 64. RIP Desmond.

BLAZE – But Nothing Ever Change 7″ (sakuragi 01) ’92

BLAZE :talking about an appropriate name. Shit, whether you’re into their music or not, you’ve gotta admit they certainly BLAZE! Okay, my technical skills as a musician don’t go any further then some basic knowledge regarding the ‘flying V air guitar’ but hell, you don’t have to be a virtuoso to fully appreciate the killdozer energy these guys produced (just listen to those drums…).
Keep your eyes open for anything else they released (not that much I’m afraid..I sincerely hope I’m dead wrong about this).
This 7″ tends to be quite rare these days but it should be (really) easy to find yourself a “damn the control” comp. 7″ (released in ’97, has 1 BLAZE track + features CHAOS CHANNEL, CONCLUDE & more).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as well : the ‘fight back vol. 1′ comp. cd (on the superb ‘fight men record label, 1993). BLAZE appears with 2 tracks here but the fun doesn’t end yet (GUILLOTINE TERROR , DISORDER, BUG-EYED, ZONE, etc…a must have comp.!!)

at this time
smash up tight

D.T.A.L. – Time to Die 7″ (atomrecords 001) ’83

Out of “Landskrona”, Sverige, Dr. Tjock & Atomligan delivere 6 exquisite hc tunes for yours to enjoy. I’d say this (1st) 7″ blows their 2nd 7″ ‘a beautiful day’ completely away in terms of sheer hardcore power.
As for the recording/release date : neither the record sleeve or insert reveals a date so I did my homework and tried to verify my ‘gut feeling’ that this ripper was actually released in ’83. I assumed it wouldn’t be too hard to solve this matter given the number of releases which are holding at least one, or several tracks. However, after I plunged into my records and inspected the “really fast vol. 4 comp. lp/the “Varning för punk cd 1″ or the “let’s start a riot in Sweden vol.2 ” the answer’s still missing.

P.s. :I believe this 7″ got bootlegged in its entirety only once (on the ‘hardcore elitserien’ vol. 1 bootleg lp, limited to 300 copies, just like the other 2 in this series. From what I’ve heard vol. 1,2 & 3 were never sold/distributed outside Japan. Please correct me if I’m wrong).
If you don’t have the original 7″ yet & got way too much money to spend (happens to me all the time, har, har!) : check out ebay (where else??) : EBAY

The Gigolos

The Gigolos EP

The Gigolos – Shes My Baby/This Generation (Power, 1980 or ’81)

I’ve read conflicting reports in regard to the year this was released. I don’t know a whole lot about this band other than the fact that they hailed from somewhere in California and were mistaken, in many circles, as possibly being from the 1960’s. This single never came with a picture sleeve as far as I know and it was comped along the way in the Pebbles series. Good rockin’ stuff with a fairly somber tone on the b-side.

INOCENTES-Miseria E Fome (Inocentes ISD001)

The first release from Brazilian legends INOCENTES. Formed from the ashes of some of that countries earliest punk bands ( Restos de Nada, Nos Acorrentados no Inferno and Condutores de Cadaveres) they became the foundation, along with OLHO SECO and COLERA, of Brazils hardcore scene.

They had appearances on several early Brazilian compilations (including “GRITO SUBURBANO” Brazils first punk LP) and evetually had line-up changes that led to new musical directions and signing with a major label. No matter what they turned into (a karoke/cover band these days I hear) this 7″ captures all the gritty urgency that WAS early Brazilian hardcore. This 7″ was also featued in it’s entirety on the BCTapes cassette comp ” tropical viruses #2″ (still available here)

WRETCHED – In Nome Del Loro Potere Tutto E` Stato Fatto EP (Autoproduzione) ’83

1st EP by this classic Italian thrash unit. Very interesting production that sounds like they recorded each track at a different time. Still, this record totally burns something fierce. I don’t know for sure how many were pressed originally, but I heard it was a reasonable amount (over 1000 possibly). Export copies came with the lyrics and statements translated into English.

La Logica del Potere
Spero Venga la Guerra
Muori Per la Patria Muori per Niente
Solo Guerra
Nessun Diritto
Ti Obbligano ad Obbedire
Non Posso Sopportare
