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)

*Neuroosi is sometimes titled as Dolorex, reason unknown.

BASTARDS – Maailma Palaa Ja Kuolee EP (Propaganda Records) 1982

This is the first EP by one of the best finnish HC bands ever. Bastards released two great LP´s after this EP in 1983 and 1984. The first LP came out on Propaganda records and the second (Siberian Hardcore) on Rock-O-Rama. Both LP´s are re-released on Höhnie and Assel-Records from Germany. Assel-Records also released a LP with the first demo recordings from 1982. The old Bastards singer Lahti (Dr. Aldi) hits the bass-guitar in Kohu-63 today. Nothing more to say …

Maho neitsyt’s very first single. Maho neitsyt was formed in Kouvola, Finland 1979. They released six 7 inchers during 1981 – 1991 although they have been playing gigs until recently. They appear also in various compilations. One of the Finlands toughest legends.

Probably 300 copies made.

Maho Neitsyt (self-released, MAHO 02) 1983


And here’s second 7″ from Maho neitsyt, this time one-sided record. These records were packed in Finlands National Liquor Stores (ALKO) paper bags.

Maho Neitsyt – Vitustakos näistä tietää? (Dekadenz FUCK 1) 1985


Third 7″ in Maho neitsyt series. This time publisher is quite well known Dekadenz -label , which also was a clothes store until late nineties.

My copy of this record has signature of bass player Örkky, who also played with Kansan uutiset. Good bad I don’t care, music is brilliant. Pressing was as much as 1000 copies! So don’t spent ridiculous amounts of money for this.

KAAOS – Totaalinen Kaaos (Propaganda Records) ’82

Total CLASSIC finnish raw noise here. KAAOS was one of the most well known/ beloved bands from Finland and this is their first 7″ (after the split w/CADGERS). They put out a TON of great records up until about 2002 and had bout 2002 line-up changes over the years with Jakke being the only original/consistent member. This was recently re-released on German label HONIE (along with a bunch of other absolutely essential Finnish records) and it included not only this 7″ but comp tracks from the “Systeemi ei toimi” 7″ and the “Russia bombs finland” comp lp on Propaganda. Most of their records have stayed in print or been reissued. If you dig this 7″, check out the rest of their Great records. HERE is their official website with tons of info.
