CÓLERA - Dê o Fora 7" EP '86

This is so far the only Cólera's studio 7" EP . It was released by the Belgians Hageland Records before the first Cólera's European tour in 1987.
This Brazilian band still going on since 1979 and still playing great shows with the same energy.
If you have a chance to see them, don't miss it.
Not as furious hardcore as Olho Seco -where they share two members in the line up- Cólera plays a sing along Punk Rock that reminds me of Lama, Asta Kask, Razzia.
Redson, guitar/singer, also had a label which released important Punk albums such as SUB Compilation LP, Cólera- Tente Mudar LP, Ataque Sonoro Compilation LP... and many more.
An interesting fact is that three songs from this 7" have been re-released in Cólera's Pela Paz CD as bonus tracks, letting out "HC-Oi-Punk", which talks about an unified scene between Hardcores, Punks and Skins. I guess the reason why they dropped that song is due to the extreme political differences created by Punks and Skins in the 90's, maybe.DOWNLOAD HERE:

D.R.I. - Dirty Rotten 7" EP '83

On November 6th & 7th of 1982 D.R.I. recorded their first release, the Dirty Rotten EP, fitting 22 songs into 18 minutes on a 7" EP. Only 1000 copies of this EP version were pressed, making it now a very rare collector's item. Demand caused this EP to be later remixed and re-released as a full album with the same 22 songs, but in a different order, and titled "Dirty Rotten LP" . The record has a very gritty sound and is the band's only punk record along Violent Pacification 7" EP without metal influence. It is considered one of the most influential hardcore albums of all time, and is also considered one of the first trashcore records. This album would also be combined with all four songs from their 1984 Violent Pacification EP. The 7" was bootlegged in 2002 I guess. The Dirty Rotten LP was re-released yet again in 2003 as the Dirty Rotten CD, with 22 bonus tracks.
