The Trend - “Electric Chair/Band Aid” (7″) (Northside Records/USA 1980)
As an act of appreciation for this website, I am posting this classic unadulterated teen-pop-punk single. The (stronger) B-side was featured on V/A-”Killed by Death #10 ” (LP) and quite rightly so. Unfortunately, the original copies I have seen so far have been selling on eBay […]

R.E.I.G. - Disarm 7″ (Reig Commando, PA 17 565) 1982
Great hardcore punk from Macerta in Italia . REIG stands for “Rivendicatori Esili Industrie Giovanili”. Apart from this 7″, their only other vinyl appearance are 2 songs on the “Raptus 2″ comp. LP released on the infamous Meccano Rds. It’s a shame they didn’t released […]

Fallout - S/T EP (self-released) ‘83

Tipi & Ministerit - Verta rakastava nainen 7″ (Outo Studio OSEP 1) ‘80
Tipi & Ministerit was a typical late 70’s / early 80’s band too - they put out only one record ever. The band was from small town called Kuusankoski, which is located in south-east Finland. Records name “Verta rakastava nainen” translates to […]

MALINHEADS - Probegepogt Aus Spandau 7″ (Pogar 003) ‘83
Killer fast punk-core from Berlin (then in west Germany part). Strong Discharge influence here. They went on to do an other 7″ less good than this one, but still ok, and then a split LP with MVD which is not worth having. This EP was reissued […]
