Disorder – Distortion to Deafness

distortion to deafness front

Disorder – Distortion to Deafness (Disorder Records Order 2) 1981

Distortion to Deafness is the second release by this well known punk band. In this ep they started to add in their trade mark “AAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHs” and added more drum rolls into the mix. You can definitely hear how much Disorder, particularly this release, influenced crasher crust bands like confuse.

There’s never been a shortage of great music to come outta Japan. From the late 70’s, right up to today, the concentration of absolutely essential records is mindblowing………. ZONE were no exception.

Formed in 1992, these guy paid homage to pioneering Japanese bands that came before them such as DEASTH SIDE and NIGHTMARE, playing absolutely bulldozing J-core. ZONES first apperance was on the “fight back” vol. 1 world h.c. compilation in 1993. Next up was the above, “win back to sanity” ep in 1994 followed by a few more comp apperances on the “six weeks omnibus” 8″, the “no fate ” vol.2 cd and the “trancendecy” 3×7″ between 1994 and 1996. The “first blow is half the battle 7″ was then released in 1997 and then it seemed the band fell off the face of the earth. Nothing was heard from them again until 2001 when they showed up on yet another comp called “one shot- one kill” In 2003 they finally released their long awaited first lp titled “squeezed state”.

These two 7″ , along with all the comp tracks, kill !!!! The lp ( which was also released in the u.s. in 2004) finds the band slowing down a bit and mining their UK 82 roots a little more, but is definately worth checking out. I’ve heard talk of there being a discography cd of all the 7″ and comp material released someday, but who knows???
