V.A. Pinch and Ouch! Compilation LP '85

I'll be posting some stuff today, but I am not in the mood to write too much, not many feedbacks in the comments area, which makes me less interested to make reviews.
Anyway, here is another great Japanese compilation featuring some well known bands such a GAI and KURO. But don't underestimate the others here, they kick ass too. Like GESS, where you can hear a good production of their songs.

SCREAMING NOISE - Not Very Nice 7'' EP

Well, I thought it was supposed to be posted on 7 Inch HCPunk. After all they never did and I don't remember seen it anywhere else, so here we go.
This is the first Screaming Noise 7" EP. Released by Eat Noise Records which I believe is the band itself. It's hard to tell exactly when it was released as the record doesn't state anything about it . I guess it dates sometime in 1996 or 1997 as the second one is from 1997. Find the second EP here.
Judging by the cover you can guess this is a Disorder worship band, but as they are from Japan it takes the natural course sounding like Swankys, Gai, Confuse, ...
I believe this style of music became a circle. If in the begging the Japanese bands were doing what Chaos U.K., Disorder, Chaotic Dischord did, now you can see the English Wankys doing a good job ripping the Japanese.
Oh yeah, apparently Chaotic Dischord was just taking a piss of Chaos U.K. and Disorder.DOWNLOAD HERE:

More Scandinavian Compilation. Now you get some classic HC/Punk and some obscure Punk bands from Finland. Terveet Kädet, Varaus and Kaaos are the classic bands that you got here before and as the previous posts those tracks wont let you down. Aivoproteesi and KTMK as far as I concern is their only release [check comments for updates], I also remember seeing a live footage of KTMK along Terveet Kädet, Rattus and WDM. Apärät appears on the Propaganda Hardcore '83 LP and have a great 7'' EP from 1985 called "Häiriköt Tulee".
This is my first Finnish post after Jakke Hallikainen death. Jakke was Kaaos' singer and died apparently on 29th of November due to a hearth failure. A big loss for the Punk scene as Kaaos were still playing gigs.

V.A. REALLY FAST Vol. 1, 2, 3

These are for me the most important compilation that came out of Sweden. Really Fast 1st LP was released by Really Fast Records on 1983 and has two of the most profiles Punk bands such as Anti Cimex and Asta Kask.
I still remember the first time that I heard Anti Cimex and was those three songs which still remaining as the best of the band in my opinion.

Bands: Missbrukarna, Anti Cimex, Kurt i Kuvös, Product Assar, Hidden Industrials, Terror Pop, Asta Kask, Huvudtvätt, Nasty Boys, DNA, Destroy, Sune Studs och Grönlandsrockarna, E.A.T.E.R., P-Nissarna. Really Fast Vol. 2 was released in 1985 and is as good as the first issue, also all great bands specially Sound of Disaster, Asocial, Mob 47, Sötlimpa, ...

Bands: Krixhjälters, S.O.D., Asocial, Tatuerade Snutkukar, Swankers P.M.S., Nyx Negativ, Mob 47, Bristles, AB Hjärntvatt, Ingron Hutlös, R.T.S., Distrust, Subway Army, Sötlimpa. And the last one on this post is the Really Fast Vol. 3 released in 1985 which follow the other two and …

V.A. SUB LP '83

After a long time away from the blog, I'm back with a Brazilian classic compilation which describes very well how the Brazilian Hardcore/Punk sounds.
This LP was recorded at the end of 1982 and first released by Estúdios Vermelhos in 1983 followed by Ataque Frontal in 1985 and Indie Records in 1989. Then remastered to CD by Devil Discos. The problem is, with the re-equalizing process the sound changed too much and even worse is that the gaps they put between tracks, where you can not find on the vinyl making this record a non stop gem. I still believe worth to have the CD version, is like you are listen to a different recording, but you'll only notice it if you listen the vinyl version along it.
First we have Ratos de Porão - before João Gordo era - delivering their dirt hardcore with Jão (the only original member till nowadays) on vocals. Some Brazilian Punks believe that was R.D.P.'s best line up.
Cólera is another band that still going on recording and gigging, although…

EXTREME NOISE TERROR - Rehearsal 18.02.87

The reason why this blog is called "Carry On Screaming" is because Disorder and Extreme Noise Terror have a song with that name. But when I listened to this killer version I really decided to use the name.
E.N.T. here deliver 4 tracks with the furious that you haven't heard before. The recording is quite good for a practice and I'm surprised that it's never been on vinyl.
Mick Harris (Napalm Death) is featuring in this recording as well as the video below.

TERVEET KÄDET - Anno Domini 7'' EP '89

After a whole week of work, yesterday night I went out to drink and today I have the usual hangover. So I ain't on the mood to write.
But whatever, you already know, Terveet Kädet is a great band and you wont be disappointed with this single. 7:30 minutes of very well done Scandinavian Hardcore/Punk.
Would be great if any Finnish expert could translate what they are singing here. I know the lyrics are normally about sadomasochism.

PATARENI + ATTA - "Deadland Massacre" Split 7" EP

This single reminds me alot of the early 90's when I was loving to listen all those brutalities! I'm still listen to, but more selective now and classics like this one can't be unaware. Early PATARENI in the middle 80's used to be a typical Yugoslavian dirt HC/Punk. But they went more brooootal and start to going to a more grind direction. What I like most is that they still have a catch melody. On this split EP they play more than 15 tacks in about 6 minutes with no stop. This set was once re-recorded and released on the Patareni's Back to the Root LP and on a split CD/LP with BUKA, a truly powerful production.
ATTA is an industrial project from Erich (FEAR OF GOD singer and the man behind the mandatory blog Good bad Music for bad, bad Times!. Listen to these noises, I always wondered what he used to make them. That even inspired me to make my own industrial noise project back in 1993. But that is another story.
I am including a interview with both bands that came …

集団自殺 - Demon Priest 7" EP '91

According to a Japanese friend of mine you should pronounce it as "Syuudan Jisatsu" which means "A Mass Suicide", but also doing a search over the net, I've found people saying "Shuudan Jisatsu" translate to "Group Suicide". More search done and I found a thread over forum where people are trying to solve the mystery of "Syudan Jisatsu". Some people says this is a Finnish band, others say it has Sakevy from GISM on vocal. I don't know, but it sounds alot like GISM, specially the vocals.
I also found a review on the great site www.austrinken.comsaying:
"Frankly: I know next to nothing about this band since more than a decade ago, SYUDAN JISATSU totally drowned within the sea of anonymity. In addition to this, I always thought that this troop is called SHUDAN JISATSU, but a trustworthy friend told me that their moniker is SYUDAN JISATSU. I’m not sure what’s accurate – my Japanese got a little bit rusty rec…

DISORDER - Air Raid / Law and Disorder 7" EP '80

Yes this IS the first Disorder's single, but, NO, this Is NOT the Bristol's Disorder, Yes they also come from England, but from Sunderland (near Newcastle). What a Disorder, innet?
Formed in 1978 as Cranium Disorder, then shorted the name to Disorder in 1979.
This single was released in April 1980 by Ace Records. 750 copies were made, only 100 with picture cover. Which has a funny story. On Detour Records you can find more about them as their second single Reality Crisis and the unreleased 3rd which was included on the compilation Bored Teenage LP.The first single was also part of the bootleg Cheap and Nasty Vol. 1 LP, 600 copies made with many rare 7". On that LP back cover you also can read the story about the cover sleeve:
"One of the bands grand fathers was a W.W.1 veteran and extremely patriotic who collected books and memorabilia ect on the war. To say he was gutted when his grandson, ripped out a page to make the record sleeve, from one of his most treasured bo…


Ok, we don't have to introduce two of the greatest HCxPunk bands coming from Finland. They are very well known, and have great records since the beginning of the 80's. But I don't think everyone knows that they have a split LP. So, if you didn't know it, now you do and have the opportunity to listen to this master piece.
So Much Fun was released in 1984 by the Germans Weird System. The label's still around, re-issuing great German classics. I just don't know why they never worked on this record again. Especially because you can't find these Terveet Kädet songs anywhere else. The same goes for Itsemurha -a wonderful quiet song- from Kaaos, not even included on the (almost) Total Kaaos CD. Altought the others songs, excluding Onks Tää Elämää, are taken from the Ristiinaulittu Kaaos LP . DOWNLOAD HERE:

ZYKLOME A - Made in Belgium LP

Zyklome A was a wonderful hardcore/Punk band from Belgium. They first appeared on the Belgian compilation Second Time Around. After that, they shared a great split 7" EP with Moral Demolition in 1983. Made in Belgium LP came up in 1984. On the follow year they participated on V.A. Alle 24 Goed! LP featuring Belgian bands. Also in 1985 they were on the classic international Cleanse the Bacteria compilation LP. All their recordings plus live sets are available on Noise and Distortion CD released by Grand Theft Audio in 1997.

ZYKLOME A - Made in Belgium LP '84 ( Punk Etc. - Torpo 1 )


I normally don't like compilations made by songs taken from already existent records, but this one is great. It Introduced me to some bands that I never heard before and yes, has some exclusive songs here too, as the Cólera tracks, I haven't heard these versions anywhere else.
I pretty much like all bands here. Fast and dirt HC from Huvudtvätt, Neos, Terveet Kädet, Rattus, rough tracks by Olho Seco, Cólera, some Anarcho Punk British style from Cult Maniax, Protest, Suicide and the South African Power Age. S.I.B is a Punk Rock band from Italy but the female singer doesn't sound Italian at all, very typical English indeed. Another exclusive track comes from the German Upright Citizens, "Stormy Monday" , well, they already had that song on "V.A. Keine Experimente! LP '83" but was called "Gift To Europe" and of course with different lyrics. Plastick was a band featuring the guy behind the Xcentric Records & Tapes, the 2 songs here are ve…

SÖTLIMPA - "Loften 7'' EP" + "A Non Fitting Generation 12"

If you love ASTA KASK and never heard SÖTLIMPA, be sure that your new passion will be this band. This is the best melodicpogopunkrock coming from Sweden. Alot of feeling, energy and power coming from these guys.
Their first release was "Kaka Till Middag" Demo Tape '82, (self release) very primitive Punk Rock, but still good, then in 1983 another tape called "On The Street Again" (AGG Tapes) and the first vinyl often called "Loften" (Self release). 3 tracks on V.A. "Raped Ass" Tape (AGG Tapes). In 1984 came the "A Non Fitting Generation" 12" EP released by a major label called Skvaller. 2 tracks "Raped Ass #3" Tape '85 + 2 Tracks on V.A. "Really Fast LP '85".
I decided to upload both vinyl here, they are very hard to find and if you find, be prepare to spend a good money on it. But is likely that you will find the CD Sötlimpa 1982-84 (AGG Tapes, including both vinyl and the tapes. M…

VARAUS - Tuomittu Elämään EP

Varaus was one of the icons of the Finnish Hardcore Punk in the early 80's along with Kaaos, Riistetyt, Terveet Kädet, Bastards and so. But with an unique guitar structure and a well done vocalisation.
Unfortunately I don't own this record, I got the tracks from the semi-discography CD called "Requiem" and my friend Ameba Chaos provided me with the covers scan.
One of the reason I am posting this record is to find out if any of you out there own the first and only Varaus 12" EP (1/2 MLP) self released in 1982.
On Requiem CD we can only find 6 of the 9 tracks, I have the other tracks downloaded from soulseek but the quality is bad. So if anyone could post this record or let me know a link to, would be great.
Varaus also appear on V.A. "Hardcore '83" LP released by Propaganda Records and V.A. Yalta Hi-Life LP '84 released by Barabbas Records. Tracks included on Requiem CD, which was released by Kraklund. DOWNLOAD HERE:

SHIKABANE - 1st 7" EP 人間に生まるること難し・・・

The year was 1997, my friends and I had just opened a squat. A new guy was also moving in and with him some cassette tapes. So, I was fixing something in my room when I heard music coming from this guy's room. It was Gauze, and I thought: "wow! I haven't heard that for while" (a few months maybe). Then a new band came up on that tape. It was Japanese like Gauze, tight like Gauze, but faster and shorter -not too short- just like a HC band should be. After 1, 2, 3 songs I had to ask what the name of that "atomic bomb" was, ironically coming from Japan. It was SHIKABANE. Needless to say that became the top band for that year.
I needed the record though, as the tape was missing some tracks. It only had 8, with the last one being incomplete! But at that time it wasn't so easy to hunt records like nowadays.
Although it was quite easy to get their next release, which was a split with AGATHOCLES (what a great record) both bands delivered a wicked fastloudpogot…


I first got it on tape when I used to trade recordings. When I saw it on a friend of mine list I thought it was samples taken from already existent albums. A compilation featuring a line up like DISORDER, CHAOS UK, RIPCORD, E.N.T.,... wouldn't be possible I've reckoned, but as soon as got it from the mail I put it on the tape deck and for my good surprise I was wrong, brand new recording of old songs by Disorder, Chaos U.K., played faster and I got shocked when listen to E.N.T.'s "Bullshit Propaganda". I am not sure if all recordings are exclusive for this album, but I like this compilation from the beginning to the end. Many years later I was in shock again when I was in a record shop and I saw this vinyl, it was the first time that I came across to the cover picture, of course I bought it immediately.

DISORDER - Mental Disorder EP

There are few reasons why I'm posting this record:
1st because I went to Bournemouth (English coast) last weekend to watch a gig and once again I met Taff (Disorder's bass guitar) and we were chatting about the band for while;
2nd because I was watching a brazilian movie called "Bicho de Sete Cabeças" (Brainstorm) which is about a middle class teenager, who lives a normal life until his father sends him to a mental institution;
3rd because I think this is the best Disorder's release and their are a fucking wicked band.
Disorder still playing but I'd rather call it "Taff and his 'band' " than Disorder. Sometime he puts some good guys together and something good come out of this but sometimes is just a tragedy. Since 1998 I've watched some good and some terrible gigs.
I wish i could see Boobs (the singer on this record) joining the vocals again but he still in Spain serving years in jail. Apparently Steve (guitar) is in Holland, dunno if …

BALANCE - Why answer Still Missing

This is my first only Japanese post and you better get used coz I am a Japanese-freak. I love japancore.
Don't missjudge this band by the name or even the cover, I know it looks a bit strange, I myself wouldn't buy this record if I didn't know them before. First time I heard Balance was on "V.A. This The Life Vol. 3" released by M.C.R in Japan. Only one track that made me go mad to find out about other releases. And yes I got hold of this master piece and their split CD with U.C.A "Two 'Existence' With One Heart". You can't go wrong if you like bands like Death Side and Crude, actually Balance comes from Hakodate City the same as Crude, Mustang, Etæ, sharing members and similar music.

BALANCE - Why answer Still Missing 7" EP '99 (Blood Sucker Record - BSR-52)

BALANCE - "Never Too Late" (From V.A. This is the Life 3)


This was first released by Uproar Records in Sweden, then licensed to New Face Records in Brazil. Uproar album was a single LP, soft paper poster size cover and included the Uproar zine #3 which covered all bands on the compilation. The Brazilian release came up on 1987 and is a double LP, hard gatefold cover, some different photos, but no zine.

Both have the 23 tracks, 8 bands which varies from the melodic Punk Rock of Ugly Squaw to the raw power of Crude S.S. But be careful and don't get too mellow when listen to Rescues in Future's "You Can Try".
V.A. THE VIKINGS ARE COMING LP '85 (Uproar Records #2) / '87 (New Face Records 009-1)
When you download the music you also get the zine scanned.

OLHO SECO - Botas Fuzis Capacetes

I believe many people first heard of Olho Seco when listen to the Maximum Rock'n'Roll V.A. "Welcome To 1984 LP" where they blasted with the second track after the killer TERVEET KÄDET leaving you breathless. But by that time they already have released this first single, taking part on a tape compilation featuring bands around the world called "Raw War" realeased by Xcentric Noise, also the infamous live V.A. "O Começo do Fim do Mundo" LP, but before that they were on the first ever Brazilian Punk 12'' "Grito Suburbano" shared with CÓLERA and INOCENTES, dated of 1982 also released by Punk Rock Discos which was run by Fábio, Olho Seco's singer.
There is cool interview from a Brazilian zine called S.P. Punk translated for the site KILL FROM THE HEART:
Also on Kill From The Heart you can find a discography as well. Still possible to get some Olho Seco's CDs a…
