Schleim-Keim – Schwarz Rot Gold – Nie gewollt EP (Nasty Vinyl 04 / Höhnie Records 03 – 1992)

The first EP of the east-german punkband Schleim-Keim from Stotternheim/Erfurt. It was released in 1992 but the records are form 1988.
In 1883 they released as the first east-german punkband a record in West-Germany under the name “SauKerle”- a Split LP with “Zwitschermaschine” (experimental music) – called “DDR von Unten” (GDR from the bottom). Otherwise they released some songs on east-german tape samplers.
After the Fall of the Wall they could release offical records, among other things the “Nichts gewonnen, nichts verloren” LP’s.
The band broke up in 1996.

Coma – In a Coma (ADK) 1984

This record was put out in 1984 on the ADK record label. I do not know ANYTHING at all about this band. Coma definately has the typical ADK punk feel; they remind me a little bit of masturbation and aburadako. I think this was one of the last releases of the ADK label.

Recorded in January of 1982, this ep shows this group at their most insane status & is a testament for their classic style. fast, chaotic & still totally tuneful PUNK!! “hello new punks” is an anthem for any period of PUNK ROCK!!! beware!! there is a later issue of this 45 that is a re-recorded a-side which is backed with a somewhat limp cover of the Sex Pistols “Bodies” & includes a totally different sleeve.

G-Spot – Radical & Shout 7″ flexi (Deadlock Records) 1983

Totally unknown Sendai band. This flexi was recorded back in 1983 and released the same year by Deadlock Records. Without being 100% sure, I think the label was the bands own. It says G-01S on the back.
This record is incredible. Raw hardcore punk with gruffy vocals.

Nuclear Addicts Front

Confuse – Nuclear Addicts (Blue Jag) 1984

“The first recordings of Confuse appear to be the stuff on the Spending Loud Night 7″ (King’s World Records). These recordings are ultraraw noisy thrash and are possibly from a demotape, but I haven’t run across a trader that had this demo, although I have heard it was… This stuff is from 1983 and I think is a 4-track basement demo type of thing. The Indignation demo from 1984 is definitly a demo tape, I have seen two covers for this tape. More controlled noise but still outrageously fuzzed out and violent sounding. Later this year Confuse entered the studio for what I believe was the first time and produced the Nuclear Addicts flexi. This, as with the progression from the 1st demo to the 2nd demo, shows a less chaotic and more focused attack, but if you had never heard the demos and just this you’d be hard pressed to believe it. The flexi is a classic noisecore record, abrasive rough buzzsaw thrash a la Disorder but heavier. After this, Confuse appear on a compilation 8″ called Jisatsu Omnibus and the three songs are a bit more rough sounding than Nuclear Addicts (some of them are rerecordings of older songs from the demos as well).” – Kill from the Heart web page

The only other real information I have about this band is that the lead singer is apparently in a folk band now and one other member might be in the band eevee.

FRIGORA-s/t e.p. (Fuck Fashion Town records F.F.T.006) 1995

The BEST Mob 47 record to ever come from Japan !!!!!!!

Seriously, FRIGORA were around for a couple of years and contained ex-members of the band LIBERCAO. These guys took the mob 47/Swede worship to the extreme. Band members names and song titles were in Swedish and the list of songs below aren’t given proper “Swedish” justice as I couldn’t find the UMLAT (two dots above the letter) button on my keyboard- Ha !!

This 7″ and a split 7″ with Swedens DISKONTO were the only official releases while they were active (save for a couple comp. apperances). A compilation lp of their demos and misc stuff and a live lp called “dance of the plauge bearer” were released posthumously.

Sha-London – Short Cut To The Hell 8″ flexi (Incest Records) 1983

Incest Records #1. Released in 1983 and produced by Baki (Execute). Euro (Execute) was guest drumming, while this flexi was recorded.
Very much inspired by early us hardcore punk. Of course. Definitely for fans of early Execute. This flexi is of course very unknown to many people, but do not let that fool you, because this blue piece of soft wax will blow you away. Atleast it blew me the fuck away!
This time without “Japanese Title”.

V/A BEST RUN FAST VOL. 1 flexi-(MCR company records) 1990

Two really solid early 90’s Japanese compilations here. These were the first two records in a series that included “best run fast” video and an compilation lp. Most of these bands, with the exception of D.o.n D.o.n., didn’t get much recogognition. It was probably due to the fact most of them didn’t release much more material than a solitary 7″/flexi or a couple comp tracks.

Final count-Wild and wooly

BEST RUN FAST VOL. 2 ep-(MCR company records) 1991

MCR records was famous for not only releasing records by smaller, unknown Japanese (and worldwide) bands, but also it’s “hard & loud” series of videos and all the city compilations (i.e.- Kyoto city h.c. /Sapporo city h.c. etc.). I believe that both these records, plus tracks from the” best run fast” compilation lp, were recently re-released on one handy cd.

MCR is still going strong to this day releasing consistently great records. Check out their website HERE.

Client – Trap 8″ flexi (Radon Label) 1988

First of all, I would like to apologize for the pictures. I don’t have a scanner.
Client was a very unknown band from Japan. I know very little about this band, other than this 8″ red flexi from 1988, totally rips. This is their only release and the first (and only?) release on the Radon Label. Great hardcore punk, with a metallic sound to it.

BORN AGAINST-s/t e.p. (Vermiform VMFM01) 1990

Sort of a companion piece to the recently posted LIFE’S BLOOD 7″, Born Against were another N.Y. band that changed the parameters of what a “hardcore” band could be (and NOT be).

Intelligent and uncomprimising in their views, these guys (and a few other bands) collectively called “bullshit” on most of what was happening in the world at that time. Tackling such heavy issues on this record as consumerism , blind patriotism, religious conviction and the exploitation of women, in a smart and personal way- they stood out from most other bands of the era.

At a time when hardcore was being comodified by major independent record labels (In-effect/Caroline etc.) especially in N.Y. and shows promoting these bands became bigger and more expensive to attend, born against spoke out the loudest. In an infamous “debate” on the WNYU “crucial chaos” radio show, Sam and Adam from born against and Charles from RORSHACH went head to head with the two meatheads (Pete and Lou) from SICK OF IT ALL and the guy who runs the In-effect label. Hilarity insues and nothing much gets solved, but it proved that born against stood behind their convictions and were willing to face people who threatened violence against them for their outspokeness. The lyrics to the song “born again” sum up the comodification issue quite nicely:

Born again as just another product
born again as the next big thing
once a vehicle for outrage now just packaged tastefully

The status quo whose very abuses generated our contempt
now courts us, now treats us like the serviles they know we’ve become.

I reject the leveraged buyout
I reject the corporate sellout
I reject their lame ass version of what the fuck this music is all about.

And make no mistake
all they want is your money
and all they need is your numb nod of approval
and all they demand is your silence

Born again, dead.

After a line-up change or three, they released several more GREAT records and toured a couple times before calling it quits in 1993. It’s hard to sum up a band of such importance in a few paragraphs. Besides the absolutely RAGING music, their views and personal insight brought a much needed, breath of fresh air to hardcore at a time when it was becoming a a sad parody of itself.

Most of these guys went on to other good bands such as MENS RECOVERY PROJECT, THE (YOUNG) PIONEERS and recently the WRANGLER BRUTES. Check out Sam Mcpheeters sites HERE and HERE.

ps: the born against sticker on the cover of this record is actually safety orange
colored but for some reason my scanner wouldn’t pick it up – nerd facts……
