BRYGADA KRYZYS - Centrala/The Real One (Tonpress, Poland) ‘82
Definitely 1st punk record released in Poland and 4th Polish punk record in total- previous are KRYZYS LP & DEADLOCK “Ambicja” LP - both released in 81 by French label Blitzkrieg, both rare and very expensive. Brygada Kryzys (Crisis Brigade) started 81 from the ashes of […]

ATOXXXICO-Punks De Mierda (PPR records) 1987 Mexico
First 7″ by this Mexican band (complete w/speed metal-ish influences). They went on to release some demos and an lp and stayed together well into the 90’s with a few member changes. I believe there was recently a discograhpy cd released (in Japan) that contains their complete recorded […]

DISCLOSE / INSANE YOUTH split - Kochi-City Hardcore (MCR-063) ‘93
This is probably my favorite band. I love DISCLOSE. Simple, angry, and punk as hell. This is their first split vinyl release as a band. It was released by MCR in 1993. INSANE YOUTH is also excellent on this record but unfortunately I […]

Here’s one of the best record from the 2000′ s. TERMINAL STATE : 7″ from 2004 on HATE THE 80’s RECORDS. This Canadian band played exactly like early DC HC bands such as TEEN IDLES or more… Great 5 tracks records, delicious… No sleeve.

The Young Lords 7″ (Sonet, Norway) 1980
The Young Lords were a punk/new wave/power pop band from Halden, Norway. This was their only 7″ released in 1980, produced by Casino Steel. Three originals and a cover of The Heptones’ “Book of Rules”. The last song “Big Burden” is my favorite. You can’t get much more […]

CHIKUSYO - Death In Life 7” flexi (Fasten-Up) 198?
This is one i want to share mostly to get more infos about it. Chikusyo should mean something like “way of shit”. Musically well this one is more melodic than chaotic but have your typical catchy riff, with a powerful rhythm section ala Motorhead, i like […]

FATSY WATAIRE - Chimene hovelicot 7″ (SOUPLET 107002) ‘78
Very rare 7″ from FRANCE 1978. The music is strange but really near of PUNK ROCK. The main interest of this record is the funny lyrics but you should understand french to have fun with (like BULLDOZER : LP).
Whatever, here it’s now available, so […]

ELECTROFLEX - Into The Night 7″ (Wolfsschanze) 1979

Hartford, Connecticut, has to be the most boring city in the entire U.S., but it coughed up this street-punk gem in 1979. Hard-rockin anthemic thug punk with up-front guitars and tortured vocals — Dead Boys is clearly an influence. Wonder whatever happened to these guys.
Into The […]

Heimat-Los - Schlag EP (NW010) 1985 - France
Heimat-Los (aka Heimatlos) was the first French hardcore band I ever got into. This 7″ is truly awesome: the songs perfectly balance speed with melody. I don’t know what I could compare Heimat-Los to… perhaps a cross of Flag of Democracy with BGK? Whatever - this band […]
