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!!

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.
