集団自殺 - Demon Priest 7" EP '91

Image
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 7inchPunk.com 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

Image
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…

KAAOS & TERVEET KÄDET - So Much Fun Split LP

Image
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

Image
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.

V.A. BEATING THE MEAT LP

Image
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"

Image
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 www.eggtapes.nu), including both vinyl and the tapes. M…

VARAUS - Tuomittu Elämään EP

Image
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・・・

Image
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…

V.A. DIGGING IN WATER LP

Image
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.
01. Overproduction - DISORDER
02. Kill Your Baby - CHAOS U.K.
03. Senile Fools - CONCRETE SOX

DISORDER - Mental Disorder EP

Image
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 …
