W.T.G. – Don’t They (Papa Whopper Records) 1987

St. Louis band “Whoppers Taste Good” (or W.T.G.) put out their FC/BM (food-core/beer-metal) EP “Don’t They?” in 1987. The music’s a bit sludgy with some heavy metal riffs and there are some goofy lyrics to go along with it. Their second record, “Haunting White Castle”, came out in 1988. One of the band members put out a zine titled “Motion Sickness”.

Neuroosi

Neuroosi – Rock Against Seija Isonsaari / Suutarinemännän kehtolaulu 7″ (Safety, NEUROOSI-01) 1979

Neuroosi* 7″ is maybe rarest Finnish punk record there is. It isn´t usually found in record catalogues, because it isn’t “officially” released at all. Only 10 test pressing copies exist (supposedly). Only A -side of the single is their own composition, b -side is a traditional Finnish song. The band was from Suomussalmi and as usually – this is their only release. Year was 1979.

Artists this time:
Osmo Räihälä (voc)
Pasi Keränen (solo guitar)
Mikko Keränen (guitar)
Pertti Teeriniemi (bass)
Olli Löytynoja (drums)

Tracks

*Neuroosi is sometimes titled as Dolorex, reason unknown.

T.S.O.L.

T.S.O.L. – T.S.O.L. (Poshboy Records) 1981

Sweet…this record brings back such great memories of the old days when you spin it it just make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. One of the greats from back in the day as far as true California hardcore goes. When I hear this record still to this day it makes me think of hanging with old friends and just not worring about sweet fa. ‘Dance With Me’ is another worthy recording by TSOL…and dont forget Slayer covered a couple of tracks off this 12inch EP…Trun it up!

4 Walls Falling


4 Walls Falling – Burn It / Happy Face 7” (Redemption Records # 03) 1992

Four Walls Falling was an American political hardcore band from Richmond, Virginia from members of Unseen Force and Pledge Allegiance. Known as one of the greatest hardcore bands from the Richmond scene, the band had major success in the hardcore community, recording four 7-inches & an EP. They played their first show with 7 Seconds and Justice League in 1987 and toured the United States in 1992. The band broke up in 1994.

This is a nice record. The band was known to be a straight edge band but instead of copying the classic style of youth crew HC they developed their very own style of of this genre with lyrics that clearly show that they were interested in more than the so-called scene with always the same talking about unity and stuff.

Adrenalin O.D. – A Nice Song in the Key of D (Buy Our Records) 1986

Starting out in 1983 with an EP of fast hardcore (the excellent and highly sought after “Let’s Barbecue”, I always preferred mid-period Adrenalin O.D. This single was released to promote the excellent “Humungousfungusamongus” LP and it includes an alternate mix of the a-side, and an instrumental flip. The album has been reissued on CD with 6 bonus tracks, so head to Amazon or wherever you shop if you’re missing out.

Trial

Trial

Trial – Trial 7″ (1983)

Trial were a San Francisco band who released just one single and one album during their brief life. While I’ve never been able to locate the full-length (which I’m told came out in 1986), this single stands out to me due to its slow pace and political musings that were more at home on a UK bands record at that time. Even their sloganeering and single insert are far more Crass than anything else. The hardcore fanatic probably won’t like it much (it really is a bit slow), but if you ever venture into peace punk territory give it a listen.
