W.T.G.

Monday, January 28th, 2008

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 […]

Neuroosi

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

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 […]

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 […]

Sa-int was formed in city of Lahti in the middle of the ’80s, in 1984 to be exact. The band made four 7″‘s as Sa-int and two LP’s after chancing it’s name to Insaint. Sa-int means Finnish military system but here it is just a name for the band. Over the years a lot of […]

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 […]

Backslide – s/t 7”

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

Backslide -s/t 7” (Backslide) 1994 A nice record from Germany. This record is produced in the good ol’ D.I.Y.-tradition. The sound and production is nothing revolutionary but I always liked it for some reason. Old school hardcore in the American tradition. Nice artwork and the record is in white vinyl. Tracks What Does It Take […]

Trial

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

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 […]

Flower Leperds

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

Flower Leperds – S/T EP (Mystic Records) 1985 Another one of the Mystic/Nardcore class. The Flower Leperds avoided the typical metal-hardcore sound of the day. Choosing a gloomy mid-tempo pace with a mix of goth and rock influences. Tracks Has Hate Been Kind Enough I'm Eighteen Riding The Blade Lying Dead On The Phone Posted […]
