Here’s a 7″ demo by AS MERCENARIAS, a nice and obscure female band from BRAZIL. This 7″ was coming with first 1000 copies of their 2005 1st LP repressing (Original is from 1985) on SOUL JAZZ RECORDS. Songs are demo version. This band plays a […]

Some serious antimilitaristic,vegetarian,antiauthoritarian ass-kicking stuff from Britain…released on the Active Minds´ Loony Tunes label…the sound of this rules -unfortunately I never had the privilege to watch them live…

Atavistic - Equilibrium (Loony Tunes) 1987
…Rumble-core from the UK…some columnist in some fanzine (”trust” or “zap”?) characterised the sound of this music as a truckload of rubble being poured out over a corrugated sheet roof…
(it was hard to find out where to set the track markers…)

a guide to recognizing your saints

Dito Montiel, old NYHC personality and member of Major Conflict, has his movie opening up this Friday in NYC and LA. It’s loosely autobiographical (about the time right after he was in Major Conflict), and the movie looks like it does a pretty good job of depicting mid 80’s NY. It’s called A Guide to […]

Happy Toons / Dead Fink - Rest in Pieces Split 7″ (Landmind Records) 1985
Fast, powerful and quite diverse hardcore, typical for the sound of the early US 80’s, here’s the Posthumous split release by two Illinois bands : “Rest in pieces” split 7″ from 1985 on LANDMIND RECORDS with HAPPY TOONS & DEAD […]

DR. ZEKE - Udda Palsar ep (Schmajlers 109) 1979
Great 7″ by (another) killer Swedish band I know nothing about. I initially heard the b-side w/female vox and completely fell in love with it’s similarities to NIKKI CORVETTE and all the other fem. fronted punk bands of the late 70’s. I expected the same […]

False Liberty

False Liberty - Silence is Consent (One Step Ahead Records) 1986
Seattle Washington…not a bad single for the time era, very speedy and lots of core. They also released one demo tape ‘The Zoo is Free’ in 86 which was a burner. Used to penpal with the band back in […]

Judgement - Night Brings (HG Fact 102) 1998
This is to compliment the “No Reason Why” post from a couple days ago. Here is Judgement’s 4th ep. This one features Muka-Chin on drums, Iizawa on bass & vocals, and Zigyaku on guitar & vocals. Hopefully someone else out there has the other two […]

N.O.T.A. - Toy Soldiers (Rabid Cat records) 1983
Classic American hardcore here. These guys don’t seem to get much recognition even though they were around almost 20 years. This was their 2nd 7″ after the raging “Moscow” ep. They went on to put out a great lp and kinda cooled off for 8-10 years. They […]

EXPOSE - Complicated Mind 7″ EP (Expose Records-01) 1997-ish
More fuzzzzz! I don’t know anything about this band, but this 7″ is fucking amazing. I’m guessing it was released around 1997 since that’s when it was recorded. Self released on their own Expose Records, I’m sure not too many copies made it out of Japan. […]
