Terrible Feelings - Impending Doom 7" - 2011

Awesome Garage Punk Rock, currently on very high rotation. Their Shadows LP hasn't left my turntable in weeks!

Deranged Records.

Desperat - Suicide Attack ep - 2010

One of my favorite new bands at the moment. Crushing, ballistic Swedish D-Beat that I haven't had the pleasure of hearing since I first heard Skitsystem all those years ago. Contains past members from some of Sweden's best. Mob 47, Totalt Jävla Mörker, Ambulance and more.

Check them out then go find this ep and their growing back log of vinyl!

Crass or in this incarnation (Creative Recording And Sound Services) with their legendary hoax aimed at UK Teen Magazine "Loving" who gave this away free back in 1981.

This has been re-pressed on white vinyl and was Limited to 300 copies. It was originally a flexi disc.

Raw Power - Wop Hour ep - 1985

Argueably one of the best Punk bands ever to come out of Italy. The first time I heard this band was on Maximun Rock'n'Roll's "Welcome To 1984" LP and the track was Fuck Authority and I ain't ever been the same since :D

I understand that "Screams from the Gutter" has recently been re-issued so I would strongly recommend tracking it down as it's classic slab of 80's Hardcore and I think the first time I heard double kick drumming from a punk band. Great stuff.

Toxic Shock.

Slingblade - Slingblade ep

Drunk, belligerent and always dressed in denim & leather - Slingblade is bound not only to start a fight, but to finish it with style. Fronted by Bon Scott reincarnated as a woman, this five-piece from Stockhom has put together years of experience in the Swedish music scene and now they're spitting out the remains: blood, teeth and straight up heavy metal the way it was intended to be... you be the Judge!!

01 - Can't Get Enough
02 - Until Death Do You Part

English Dogs - To The Ends Of The Earth 12" - 1984

This record has to be the best exponent of Punk/Metal crossover. Just awesome. The track "Survival Of The Fittest" being the best but they are all fantastic.

Rot Records.

Conflict - The Battle Continues ep - 1985

What I would consider to be the last good ep from UK anarchist punks, Conflict. Two amazingly powerful songs.


Judas Priest - Evening Star 12" - 1979

Great classic Priest!!

Clear Vinyl with Picture insert containing track info and credits.
Original sound recording made by CBS Records
Track B1 Recorded live at The Agora Ballroom, Cleveland, Ohio, May 9 1978

No Think - Healthy Happy Hours For Ugly Death ep - 1997

Oi Polloi - Guilty ep - 1994

Oi Polloi's 4th ep and first on UK label Ruptured Ambitions. I used to get a lot of my records through these guys, awesome mailorder service.
This pretty much like like most Oi Polloi records, politically driven but also not forgetting to write a good tune to go along with it. Nice booklet with loads of info on each song.

Ruptured Ambitions.

Oi Polloi - Omnicide ep - 1991

Omnicide is Oi Polloi's 3rd 7" ep. It was released in 1991 by Words of Warning Records. The initial run of the record sold out and was never re-released. It has been commented by the band that they were not happy with the way this record turned out (Deek's vocals in particular are very unusual), which lead to the re-recording of "Victims of a Gas Attack", and the tracks "Dealer in Death" and "Die for BP" being rewritten as "John Major, Fuck You!" and "Let the boots do the talking" respectively.

02 - Omnicide

Words Of Warning.

Avfall - Now ep - 2011

No one can't stop them, running hard drunken guys from Tokyo! A more heavier sound than their split cassette w/Haava on this 1st 7"ep. the sound goes toward Swedish HC meets US thrash. It's amazing, noisey, driving hardcore punk as hell!

05 - World

Hardcore Survives.

Meine Kleine Deutsche - Roky LP - 2006

Wild and crazy, danceable and swinging, Meine Kleine Deutsche stamps out boredom by grabbing it at the jugular.

Southern Lord

Detestation - A Big White Pat On The Back ep - 1997

Pretty awesome 7" from Detestation, with the added double win with it being a cool Pic Disc and for pulling out a Celtic Frost cover!! Detestation were a D-Beat/Crust band from Portland, America.

Eyesore - Love The Old Learn The New ep - 2011

Fast, thrashy, fast, LOUD, fast, Japanese.... 'nuff said!! Get this.

Crew For Life Records.

Dystopia - Backstabber ep - 1999

Dystopia were fucking great. Mad depressing music and lyrics. I remember the first time I heard these guys and just going, damn this is so dirty and ugly.

"3 Song 7" with songs about working for assholes, getting fucked over by assholes, and getting brainwashed + drugged by big brother / media / CIA assholes. Whew! Pounding double bass drumming, down-tuned guitars, flowin bass lines and painful vocals are what's going on here. Beefy bass-heavy production. Includes a full color silk screened foldout sleeve printed by Dr. John of MEDICATION TIME. Hell, even Bruce Dickenson ripped of the whole chorus of "Backstabber" on his "Chemical Wedding" album so it's gotta be good!" Taken from Life Is Abuse.

Life Is Abuse. Misanthropic. Common Cause.

Atrocity - Blue Blood ep - 1989

Old school German Death Metal. Funny, judging from the art work you could be mistaken for thinking this was a UK Anarcho punk record.

Nuclear Blast Records.

Bloomcore - Bloomcore ep - 2001

Interesting Hardcore/Garage mix from this Swedish band. Actually very catchy release. Nice.

Self Released

High Spirits - Let's Rock ep - 2010

Take a double take at the year of this release, yes that's right it's not the 80's anymore but you wouldn't know listening to High Spirits. Heavy Metal done old school.

Self Released.

Motordamn - Over The Top ep - 1979

Apparently this is what you get when you throw The Damned and Motorhead in to a studio an leave them to it. A little disappointing to be honest. You be the judge.
