The Sinyx - The Black Death ep - 1981

Early UK Anarcho Punk from this band from Southend, London. Sort of a mix of Anarcho Punk and UK '82 Punk, it sort of wouldn't have seemed out of place on the "Punk & Disorderly" compilations.

You can find a great biography and discography here:

This was their first ep.

Makabert Fynd - Makabert Fynd ep - 2008

The band started up 2008 with Mattis (Dobermann Cult) and Doltz (Dobermann Cult, The Dontcares). Mattis did the drumming and screaming and Doltz the guitars and Bass. When we in march got a gig booked we asked Tobbe (Vicious Art, The Dead) and Yasse (Afflicted) to join us. After that gig we decided to record 7 songs for a 7" to be released by Flat Black Recordings. Later Poffen of Totalitär joined us. Andre replaced Tobbe on bass and pulko replaced Doltz on guitar.

VA - Chaotix / Marubullmen - Split LP - 2009

A classic split from two Japanese power house thrash bands. This has Heresy/Concrete Sox written all over it!!! Chaotix are very similar to Heresy or Ripcord which is great. Marubullmen are just Japanese through and through, actually reminds me of S.O.B (Leave Me Alone era) more than anything. Great split.

Chaotix Side:
01 - Drive To Hell
02 - Limitations
03 - Judge For Yourself
04 - Big Love
05 - Meaning
06 - Stand Up With Courage

Marubullmen Side:

No Value - Peaceful Violence ep - 2009

Another great Japanese hardcore band. Energetic with both male and female led vocals in different songs, they’ve been at it for years producing fast-core with perfect build ups, and the best ripping female vocals I’ve heard. Fast, raw, perfect.

01 - Just Alive
02 - Imitation Society

S.O.B - Dub Grind LP - 1999

This is Naoto's vocal debut. He previously played bass for the band long ago
when the band formed. This is also Katsumi guitar debut, in which he's
considered a session member for this album.

The band would take a very experimental approach to their music, incorporating
many sound effects and dub moments over the hardcore music.

There exists a LP package with an alternative art layout packaging and blue LP
limited to 500 copies. (Encyclopaedia Metallum)

The Execute - The Antagonistic Shadow LP - 1988

From what I read on the liner notes this would appear to be The Executes one and only full length. Most people would remember them from the Split 12" with German punk's Inferno released on Pushead's label. This is way less thrashy than their earlier work and as with Gastunk they seem to have taken a large influence from UK heavy weights like the Southern Death Cult and Killing Joke. This is a great record for those sombre moments, it has a lot of really nice guitar work and some awesome vocals. "The Human of the Ghoul" now is that an awesome song title or what!!

A Side:
01 - The Antagonistic Shadow
02 - Burning
03 - Dead Can Dance
04 - Escape
05 - Kyoto Lover

B Side:
06 - A Thousand Passion
07 - Mental Play
08 - Angel Moon
09 - The Human Of The Ghoul
10 - Gothic Waltz

Off Mask OO - Sonic Cold Crazy Reaction LP - 1986

OK, this is one fucking weird record. One moment it's crazy vocal ramblings then the next it's a hail of chaotic noise then a tune evolves then it digress' once more into the realm's of insanity. Some parts remind me of Rudimentary Peni "Cacophony" era but that is a very liberal comparison. Be what it may, it's Japanese, it's weird and it belongs on this blog.

A Side:
01 - Are You Ready?
02 - Sonic Cold Crazy Reaction
03 - In Japanese
04 - Highway Splatter (Baby!)
05 - In Japanese

B Side:

Dead Kennedys - Halloween 12" - 1982

This 12" single has one of the best Dead Kennedys tracks on the B-Side "Saturday Night Holocaust". Neurosis did an amazing cover of this track on the Virus 100 Tribute. Not sure what countries this was released in but I got this from the UK.

Virginia Black Lung - Demo

Unsure when this came out but did stumble across this description of them which I think sums this demo up quite well....

"Ugly and caustic, Virginia Black Lung unleash with no regard for musical standards or melodies! Trust me, your parents will cower when they here this one. Political lyrics and harsh thrashy hardcore with some ugly wall of noise vocals. Classic"

01 - Fuck You Mr Penny
02 - S Copeland
03 - Comfort In Complacency Or Drop The Books
04 - Sex Slave Or Today Your love Tomorrow The World
05 - Going Price For Democracy One Million Dead

Acrostix - Truth Turned Gray With Justice ep - 2007

Japanese Crust delivered with precision. "Killing Frost" would be the stand out track for me. This is a good ep but their "Chain of Hatred" Mini-LP is a more polished record.

01 - Thrash Em 'All
02 - Killing Frost
03 - Iron Bird

Broken Bones - Crucifix ep - 1984

Broken Bones are from England and were formed by guitarist Tony "Bones" Roberts in 1983 after he left Discharge. The original lineup was Tony's brother Tezz (also a former member of Discharge) on bass, Nobby as the vocalist and drummer Bazz. Their first single release was the January 1984 "Decapitated". The follow up single "Crucifix" was released in May of 1984. Tezz left the band to join U.K.Subs and friend and roadie Hoddy took over on bass. This new line-up recorded the bands first album "Dem Bones", and toured Europe & USA.

Hoddy then left to join Conflict, and Tezz resumed bass playing duties, and the F.O.A.D. album was released.

The band then had several line-up changes with Nobby leaving to live in America and Tezz once more departing. Hoddy returned to play bass and sing. The band released the "Seeing Thru My Eyes" ep with this 3-piece line-up. Eventually the band ground to a halt.

Bones reformed the band with a new line up of Cliff on drums, Quiv on vocals and Darren "Thrasher" Harris (of Exit Condition) on bass. This is where the band took a more metal turn with their music, releasing "Losing Control". Two more albums were to follow with the 12 inch release "Religion is Responsible" and another album "Stitched Up". After these albums release, the band's touring and recording fell into remission.

In 1996 Broken Bones reformed. Bones as on guitar, Quiv on vocal, Hoddy on bass and Dave on drums. They released their first studio album in 8 years, "Without Conscience" in 2001 and in 2004, they released "Time For Anger, Not Justice". Both albums bring the band back to their roots as they play the brand of hardcore they're most well known for. They still gig and tour regularly. (Wikipedia)

On a side note, what the fuck is up with the reversed image on the sleeve? Is this a print error and Fall Out Records released it any way? Any info would be appreciated.

Balzac - Atom-Age Vampire In 308 ep - 2003

I've always had a soft spot for this band ever since I first heard them on the Sound Pollution compilation "Kamikaze attacked America" with the track "The day the earth caught fire". It's just good Horror fueled Punk Rock with the obligatory nod to the Misfits. This is only one of about three Picture Disc's I own as I think they are a silly medium and I would prefer the extra costs involved in production to go toward a proper sleeve.
