JUDGEMENT - Just Be CD 2000

Image
Just Be is the only CD (a mini CD) and last release of the Japanese band Judgement. Like the previous releases, they got changes on the line-up, this time a female bass player joined the band after the departure of Iizawa and to the vocals and lyrics they got the legendary Lip Cream's vocalist Jhaja.
It took me while to get into this album which is quite different from the singles. More melody on the clear vocals, nothing like Lip Cream was and female back vocals are included too. Sure I've expected more but still worth to have it.DOWNLOAD:

JUDGEMENT - Night Brings EP '98

Image
The fourth Judgement single brings the band to a 3 piece as the vocalist Tokurow is no longer the singer. But with the guitarist Zigyaku singing Night Brings and the bassist Iizawa singing the weird and interesting song Heart of Darkness the band keeps the pace and quality of the previous releases.DOWNLOAD:

JUDGEMENT - Haunt in The Dark 7'' EP '97

Image
What a release!!! Great record production not only in the music field but also on the jacket cover, a colourful hard gate fold cover that you normally see on double LP. Again they deliver two powerful songs, but on this record the former Bastard vocalist Tokurow replaces Nori making Judgement 3/4 of Bastard.DOWNLOAD:

JUDGEMENT - Process 7'' EP '97

Image
Although the release number is #70 this single was basically released just after the first Judgement record not to say along it. Because it was only sold at concerts in Japan making this a rare piece of vinyl. Unfortunately I don't own this record, I got it from soulseek but I've enhanced the quality as the volume sound was a bit low.

JUDGEMENT - No Reason Why EP '96

Image
This is the first release of the Japanese band JUDGEMENT which was born from the ashes of Death Side, Bastard and Cruck.
It was recorded at the great Our House studio and produced by HG-Fact Records so you can expect an excellent quality of record, only two tracks of pure Burning Spirit.
It was released at Christmas 1996 -would be a great Christmas present- Followed by the Process 7" EP that I will post next.DOWNLOAD:

HUVUDTVÄTT - Live Video

Today is your luck day.
According to swedishpunk.comHUVUDTVÄTT only performed once during the career. It was in Sundsvall autumn 1982. So I guess this is the one. For the first time in the Internet (not even on youtube yet) you have the chance to watch this great band which is for me the bridge of the 70's to the 80's Swedish Punk.
On this clip you can catch the first 2 songs: SmutsigByk + Huvudtvätt. The concert goes over 16 minutes when is interrupted by the police.
Well, I might add so more over here and/or post on youtube in the future.
For now, feel privileged to see with exclusivity.

HEADCLEANERS - Disinfection 7" EP '81

Image
Although you've probably seen this posted in other blogs, I've decided to post my second pressing of Disinfection by HEADCLEANERS. Well, actually they started the band as HUVUDTVÄTT in 1981 when the brothers Nilsson left the Swedish city of Sundsvalls to Linköping breaking up the great band MASSMEDIA.
Headcleaners were their attempt to reach the international market recording in English.

JYUDEN SOUCHI (充電装置) - "Deadline" Flexi 7" EP '86

Image
Again after a long time, I'm back. Who knows if I will keep it on track?
Anyhow, I present you 充電装置 (JYUDEN SOUCHI) another great rare Japanese band which I know almost nothing about apart the second flexi 8" EP Voice of Fight and few live tracks on the V.A. Corruption LP from 1988. If you only heard them from the compilation, I think you'll be delighted to hear the good studio production of Deadline, Go Destroy and Smash Up.
In fact this flexible 7" is amazing from the beginning to the end. Solid japancore.
Obs.: This record was also available on a great bootleg LP " You Can Set The Dove Free..." among The Sexual, So What and Crow.DOWNLOAD:
