Freedom - Last Revolution ep 7" 1984



More of that fanstastic Japanese Punk from the early, mid 80's that I love so much. I'm unsure what else this band ever released so if you've got some info then please leave a comment. If you haven't heard this band before but like bands like Death Side, Mad Conflux, Cruck or So What you won't be disappointed.

F.Z.O - Den Felande Lanken 7" 1991

I don't know much about this band and only got this ep after a friend played it to me. Too me this has more of a finnish feel and sound than Swedish, with a hint to bands like Mellakka or Rattus. Similar style with a nice production. Well worth a listen. They also had some songs on Really Fast Volume 6.

01 - Gungbradan
02 - Harta Ater Gammal Ost
03 - Kryp Till Korset
04 - Sjals Sommar
05 - En Eller Ett
