CTAKAHOØ SS - S/T (self released - SS 1081) ‘81
Finally, i have an oportunity to repay the contributors of this site for all the great posts i enjoyed for weeks.
CTAKAHOØ SS were a band from my home town of Chambery, France. As far as i know, they were the only punk band around these parts in 1981.
I found this record last month for a few euros and i couldn’t believe my luck. It’s rare stuff.
They are a little on the “mental” (aka intense) side of things but i find it quite good. They stand out, today, from the more generic 2nd wave punk and it’s refreshing.
For all those reasons I really like this record and i would love to learn more about the band.
Saddly all i know about them & this EP, i learned from the web and that’s not much!
This is their 1st autoproduced 7″. Later, they changed their name for Stakanov SS.
Under that name they released a one-sided 7″ called ‘hors serie’ in 1983 (i managed to download a rip of this single recently on Direct Connect and it’s more oi!/streetpunk).
They also contributed a live track for a compilation called ‘collection privée’. Both those records were released on their own label called Poison Noir.
In 1984, they had a track on the ‘1984 : the first sonic world war’ compilation released by the label New Wave.
The track “Autonomie” from their 2nd 7″ can be heard on “Killed by death #100″.
My copy as an all-white sleeve with opening on 1 side only, but it was normaly issued with a picture sleeve & a cuted-out verso.
I don’t know if a few were issued “sleeveless” or if mine got lost or trashed.

it’s part of the great site of the EUTHANASIE collective who compiled an amazing discography of french punk: http://ripost.disco.free.fr/
i’m sorry for the cracks but i couldn’t find a way to filter it without loss of sound. I figure you can always alter it by yourselves if you so chose. enjoy
