MELLAKKA "1984-1986 - 3x7" (Svart Records) BOX SET - 26€
One of the greatest fruits of the early 1980’s Finnish hardcore punk movement was Mellakka and their two 7 inch EPs. Beginning in 1983 in Rauma, Finland, the band released one self-financed EP (Ei…) and then got picked up by Rat Poison Records for the follow-up, Itsenäisyyspäivä. They never succeeded in recording a full length, so three demo tracks done in 1986 are their swan song. All of these recordings are presented here in a new band-approved edition. The first two 7 inches come with reproduced original cover art. Second press, limited edition of 300 copies. Red vinyl. All 7 inches in
MY TURN "buried inside" (Grim Reality) - 7€
Ôñßá íÝá ôñáãïýäéá.
DISCHARGE "realites of war" (Havoc) - 5€
The classic 1st 7" from DISCHARGE circa 1980. A monumental record that helped jumpstart the hardcore movement around the world. This is one of a handful of records from 1980 that pushed '70s punk into the bleak era of the 1980's hardcore scene. DISCHARGE set the standard with their raw and uncompromising visual style and unbridled hardcore-punk music.
DISCHARGE "fight back" (Havoc) - 5€
"fight back" contains 5 song blast of pure anger and energy - DISCHARGE at their finest here. Pure beat raw hardcore-punk against which all the successors can be measured. This hard driving music is the perfect vehicle for the outrage at war and oppression conveyed by the harsh lyrics and graphics.
DISCHARGE "decontrol" (Havoc) - 5€
Classic 3 song rager from 1980. Less than a year removed from "realities of war" the sound is already faster and more aggressive, leaving '70s punk behind and blazing into pure hardcore raw punk. This record has 3 of DISCHARGE's best songs which are just pure blasts of raw anger and urgency. UK hardcore as it's best!
DISCHARGE "never again" (Havoc) - 5€
It's 1981, the cold war rages, threatening to turn hot at any moment as Reagan, Thatcher and Brezhnev seem poised to destroy the world in a descent to nuclear madness. Using cover art appropriated from 1930's anti fascist agit-prop DISACHARGE links the bleak reality of Thatcher's Britain with the descent to totalitarian oppression and war of an earlier generation. A bit more polished than the 1st three 7"s and the "why?" MLP, "never again" delivers 3 blasts of hardcore.
DISCHARGE "state violence, state control" (Havoc) - 5€
DISCHARGE's 5th 7", from 1982. The sound is a bit less raw and there is a tiny bit of the metal influence starting to show. The energy and power of "hear nothing see nothing say nothing" are starting to manifest on these tracks.
GAS RAG "demo" (Even Worse) - 5€
New band from Chicago. What a good start for 2013. Really fast d-beat influenced hardcore punk with some (short but) cool guitar solos thrown in. To say it in their own words: "We like to get high and play fast punk and I think that it really shows in our sound". You get 6 songs in 4:40min. I can assure you, it sounds as dirty and fucked up as the cover looks.
GAS RAG "human rights' (Even Worse) - 5€
Chicago sex punks GAS RAG are back with six tracks of hardcore punk for the masses. Recorded during the same session that yielded the critically acclaimed 2013 demo, the “HUMAN RIGHTS” EP is sure to tickle the collective fancy of those who were stimulated by the aforementioned demo tape. Blending elements of D-Beat rock based music and a bit of their own Midwestern flavor, GAS RAG gives Earth's freaks the perfect summer soundtrack to go along nicely with their inhalants and/or any other substances that one would deem fit.
GO! "the word is go!" (Refuse) - 5€
Raw as fuck, this 1989 demo shows GO! just as they were starting out – and the 12 songs pack a real punch. If you like this NYHC band, this'll be a bonus for you. If not – hold on. You'll be singing "Just.. Say… GO!" to over 12 minutes of crucial hardcore from back in the day. GO! started shortly after Mike BS left SFA, and shortly before starting the weekly hardXcore matinees at ABC-No-Rio, which are still running 25 years later. Most of the songs are under a minute, but this ep is filled to the max – another 20 seconds and it wouldn't have made it onto a 7"!
GO! was not your typical band from New York. From the very beginning they were gay-positive, anti-racist and anti-sexism. They had a message, but were also sarcastic and fun - and there were a lot of singalongs. This is one-time pressing.
RUINED FAMILIES - self titled (Halo Of Flies / Adagio 830 / Dog Knights Productions / Gardens) - 6€
Dark blackened hardcore from Greece. In your face disturbing and noisy - Cory from Halo of Flies says they take elements of crust, hardcore, black metal & noise rock, then transform these genres into their own likeness. It just rips.
COLD I "áíèç ãêñåìïý" (Scarecrow/We Don't Fight) - 12€
New mini LP. Even more melodic and nostalgic.
4 SKINS "a fistful of... 4 skins" (Radiation) - 12€
Hailing from London's working class East End, The 4-Skins formed in 1979 at the very onset of Oi! music. By the time this, their 2nd full length, was released in 1983 by the Syndicate Records label, the group had gone through numerous line-up changes and were now sporting a heavier, more melodic, hard rock-based sound fronted by ex-Last Resort vocalist, Roi Pearce. One of the hardest hitting punk albums of the '80s A Fistful Of 4-Skins is reissued here on LP with 2 tracks ("On The Streets" from the 'Son Of Oi!' compilation and a demo version of 'Saturday') added as bonus!
ABANDONED "killed by faith" (Radiation)
Originally released in 1985, this is the sole album by Tony Cadenas' own The Abandoned, the band he formed after the Adolescents original break up in 1981. Sounding a lot like Tony's original band but with an heavier Germs influence, and a more metallic, darker, almost Motörhead-esque touch. As long as Adolescents got back on track, right before releasing their mid '80s comeback masterpiece 'Brats In Battalions' this obscure page of California punk rock history got completely forgotten and was never reopened until today. A band that really pushed the boundaries for the time while sticking to their roots, something most bands were not able to do. A must for all California punk rock maniacs out there!
AD NAUSEAM "the greatest show on earth" (Noise Not Music) - 12€
One of the great lost treasures of Brit-punk, Ad Nauseam hailed from the town of Portsmouth in the south of England. After a couple of demo tapes and a single, they self-released this 8 track 12" that totally competed with Disorder and Varukers in terms of rage and fury. Plodding and painful UK anarcho-punk delivered amidst complete chaos and a whir of analog distortion. Originally printed and distributed by the band in 1987, supposedly in a mere impossible-to-find few hundred copies, this is a must have in any UK Hardcore collection! Comes with insert - sealed 140gr vinyl.
AGENT ATTITUDE "deranged realities" (Adult Crash) – 12€
AA defines an active band with plenty tours in their backsack. Releasing vinyl after vinyl, cassette on US-label and mostly tearing it down into sweat, adrenaline and instant smiles in the pit, Monument Records are privileged to be on the run since the start with Green Menace Records. The latter, and most frequent teamplayer, turned to Adult Crash: Denmark's finest.
Here we are talking fast hardcore of the old school with clear USHC tendencies from all the wonderful 80's. Dirty, bloody and raw quickly, just as it was intended from the very beginning. Frustration, anxiety and cheeky middle finger recorded on a twelve inch of plastic. It does not get much more punk than this.
For fans of: Battalion Of Saints, Black Flag, Minor Threat, early Suicidal Tendencies, Jerry’s Kids, Bl’ast, Circle Jerks....like “Totalitär, Bl’ast, SSD and Black Flag raised a baby together”.
ALTERNATIVE TV "the image has cracked" (Radiation Reissues) – 12€
Formed in London in 1977 by Mark Perry and Alex Fergusson, then editors of the punk fanzine 'Sniffin' Glue', Alternative TV was a post-punk group known for incorporating reggae rhythms and pushing the boundaries of the definition of punk towards the experimental and avant-garde. Their first album, 'The Image Has Cracked', was originally issued in 1978 and is a wholly unique piece of British post-punk. Beloved by John Peel, and close confidantes of Throbbing Gristle, Alternative TV is one of the most original and beguiling groups of the era. This classic title is now reissued on 180-gram vinyl with two bonus tracks and a double-sided insert.
ANTI "i don't wanna die in your car" (Radiation)
Part of the late '70s/early '80s HC/punk explosion out of the Los Angeles area, where bands like Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Minutemen, and Bad Religion originated from, Anti formed in 1979 by a then teenage Danny Phillips, better known as Danny Dean, who was the bassist/guitarist and first original vocalist, primary songwriter, and sole continuous member throughout multiple lineup changes during the past 40 years. Their 1982 debut album, 'I Don't Want To Die In Your War', was recorded and mixed by legendary producer and sound engineer for Black Flag and Descendents, Spot. It is a major example of California hardcore from the early '80s. Despite having been completely underrated, Anti's 1982 debut paved the way for a lot of California punk to come. Available again for the first time after almost four decades on its original format, with its original artwork and complete with insert thanks to Radiation Records.
ANTI "defy the system" (Radiation)
Recorded in Hollywood in a mere three days at the end of 1982 - oddly enough aided by the presence of Joe Strummer who was in the studio the first day of recording- 'Defy The System' is California punk group Anti's second album, considered by most to be at least as astonishing as their debut. Partly played by John Carthy from Alley Cats on drums, and originally released on the New Underground label, this was the second and last chapter in Anti's history, right before singer Danny Dean went on to form his later band Easter with Social Distortion's Mike Ness on guitar. This is pure early '80s California punk rock in the vein of Bad Religion or T.S.O.L. An absolute masterpiece now represented on vinyl, with original artwork and insert, for the first time in 35 years.
ANTI "god can't bounce" (Radiation)
Anti's 1984 'God Can't Bounce' collects all their tracks from the New Underground's label 'Life Is...' compilation (a California Punk manifesto of sorts which also included, among others, Descendents, Minutemen, and Germs), and outtakes from both previous albums, consisting of recordings made in the 1982 and 1983 period. Ten slabs of pure California punk rock for fans of Black Flag, Bad Religion, Sin 34 and the like. First vinyl reissue in nearly 35 years on Radiation Records.
ANTISECT "leeds 2.4.86" (Antisociety) - 12€
Live recording of one of the most influential bands from England, their full lenght "In Darkness ..." is a classic dark anarcho punk. Here, good quality concert from Leeds in 1986. In addition, double insert with a history of Antisect, interview and other things.
ANTIDOTE “thou shalt not kill” (Hellbent) - 11€
A real classic of NYC hardcore thrash, this features all 8 tracks from their self- released 1982 'Thou Shalt Not Kill' EP on side 1, plus another 14 tracks from a 1983 high quality live set on side 2, including 6 previously unreleased songs! Fast, pissed, tough and raging! With original artwork, plus an insert with lyrics on one side and an interview with their singer on the other. 1000 copies made.
ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT "dead serious - demo 1985" (Fan Club) - 12€
Another seminal name considered one of the strongest and most influential roots of the Californian HC scene: ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT! Before reaching a cult status with an incredible debut full length such as “American Paranoia” they did an equally groundbreaking Demo, “Dead Serious” – consisting of 10 rapid-fire bursts of fast and furious Hardcore. Quoting our friend Eric / goodbamusic.com: “ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT came out of the blue with this one. They sent out the demo tape to a lot of international fanzines and radio stations and got very popular immediately. Everybody was blown away – rarely had there been a genuine blend of the best elements of both Hardcore and Metal, played with such passion. The joy is literally bleeding through within every note, yet all the songs have a fascinating melodramatic atmosphere. By the way, this was recorded at the infamous “Turk Street Studios” where EXODUS also had recorded a demo tape. If said EXODUS demo only had the sound this one has …”
BAD BRAINS "lost tracks" (Fan Club)
Collects what looks like their "pre" Bad Brains band "MIND POWER" - demo from (1978) & two unknown studio demos from (1979) .... Very rare tracks allowing you to hear the band in their early & rawest from. Probably their earliest recording, called "Mind Power" demo, named because it was recorded when the band was still called Mind Power. 2 more demos done at unknown studios a little bit before their early stuff that are appearing on pay to cum 1979-1981 record mastered for vinyl ... comes with a double sided insert & sticker.
BAD BRAINS “rock for light” (Caroline) – 12€
This is the classic album from 1982. Virtually everyone agrees that this group made up of 4 DC African American. They radically quickened punk's tempos, added virtuoso instrumentation, and topped it all off with the mystic squeals of frontman Paul "H.R." Hudson. This release gives voice to the band's scathing sociopolitical judgment as well as its ability to simply put the hammer down and rock. It also allows the rhythm section of Darryl Jenifer and Earl Hudson to flex their muscle on a smattering of dub-reggae interludes that help lull the unsuspecting into the right frame of mind for the next hardcore punch.
BLACK FLAG "demos 1982" (Fan Club) - 12€
The only recordings with Chuck Biscuits on drums. Tracks A1 and A2 were never officially released, other tracks are unreleased versions. Great quality boot.
BOMBENALARM “no mistakes” (Unsociable) – 10€
Bombenalarm play hc/punk with diverse influences, a lot of power, outstanding vocals, and raging guitar leads. This is their second full length, which encompasses the power they have as a band with precision and depth more fully than any of their previous releases. Awesome recording and great artwork by these German punx. 11 tracks destined for glory, and many circle pits.
BRONCO LIBRE - st (Abfall/Destructure)
Ass-kicking new Punk-Hardcore band from Leipzig/Germany! They are mixing hardcore and catchy punk in the vein of YOUTH AVOIDERS or ROTTEN MIND.
"This album is dedicated to native Americans, to their History and their fight. Our lyrics talk about their History but also their stories, and about their extermination under colonisation. We can't pretend knowing or even imagining what this people endured, what they've been through and what their descendants still experience nowadays. Also we don't think that this album will change anything. But we hope that through our simplified, romanced and vulgarized lyrics, we could take part (at our scale) in getting this topic (often forgotten and deliberatly avoided or turn into derision and entertainment) better known. It is also possible to read in between our lines a reflection on our nowaydays society, and this feeling of fury and despair that a lot could feel facing the today's world and its progress and development by any means necessary. JB, Malte & Gwen"
BUTCHER "return to nothingness" (Punkdistro) - 14€
If you are familiar with their debut "Holding Back the Night" LP you have some idea what to expect here. For those who have not heard the band, expect some powerful, genre expanding hardcore punk from a group with members in Florida, Texas, and Japan.
The band is fronted by Jack Control, from the same WORLD BURNS TO DEATH and SEVERED HEAD OF STATE with Jon Weisberg from ASSHOLEPARADE, LIFECHAIN, RELIGIOUS AS FUCK, STARVATION and WORLDS providing Drumbeats and on guitars are Adler Moore (AGHAST, LIFECHAIN, HERETIC) and Souichi Hisatake (GUDON, FORWARD).
This second record takes the sound they crafted on the first LP and ramps up the power, tempo, and raw punk aggression. Ten tracks of pure fucking raw/thrashing hardcore punk paying homage to POISON IDEA or G.I.S.M.! Available in multible color versions, mainly GREY and TURQUOISE tones - no guarantee what i have or get.
CHAOS U.K. "floggin' the corpse" (Radiation)
On the LP-format, this is an amazing archival release collecting previously unreleased tracks and 10 great live cuts (recorded in 1983) from the important second wave UK punk band, based near Bristol. Essential punk history!
CONFLICT "it's time to see who is who" (Radiation) - 13€
Finally back in print after a long hiatus, Conflict's debut LP "It'sTime To See Who's Who" is a must-have in any punk rock collection. Originally edited on the Corpus Christi label in 1983, this is pure and quintessential "UK82" hardcore punk. Reproduced in it's original and unique gatefold artwork, this "30 year anniversary" edition on RADIATION also include their complete very first 7" "The House That Man Built", originally on Crass Records and dated 1982, as bonus.
CONFUSE "indignation" (Noise Not Music) LP - 12€
Ultra-raw noisy thrash is the word for the most widely loved Japanese HC band ever! Their 1984 "Indignation" demos, now available on vinyl again in all their unprecedented brutality. Comes with a printed inner sleeve.
CONFUSE "hate war, no war, fuckin' war" (Noise not Music) - 12€
Hailing from Kyushu, Japan from the early 80's, CONFUSE is synonomous with Japanese hardcore across the world. Inventors of the 'raw punk' approach, a hyper-distorted version of the classic '82 Britpunk formula, they ended influencing a whole plethora of latter European hardcore bands like Extreme Noise Terror or Doom, and the whole 90's 'crust' scene. This discography LP features tracks from the 'Nuclear Addicts' 7" from 1984, the 'Contempt The Authority And Take Off The Lie' 7" from 1985, the 'Spending Loud Night' 7" recorded in 1983, their tracks from the 'Sexual Confuse' compilation released in 1985, and the 'Stupid Life' 12" from 1989, where they evolved into a more melodic, 70's rock inspired style of music, right before disbanding and mysteriously disappearing.
CRO MAGS "before the quarrel" (Fan Club) – 15€
Before The Quarrelis the Cro-Mags original demo from 1985 that was originally intened to be the bands debut full length, but they didn’t have the money to press it so it never saw the light of day. The band later went back and recorded them and released them as The Age of Quarrel which was a veritable monster of a hardcore album, seething with vitriol and nihilism, and shot through with massively chugging metal riffs and galloping drums. Easily the Cro-Mags finest hour, and probably tough-guy hardcore's as well, it was a HC classic. Age of Quarrel hit like a bomb, and despite the fact that a few waves of East Coast hardcore bands had already issued their debuts (Agnostic Front, Minor Threat, SSD, DYS, Bad Brains, SOA), it quickly set the pace for albums to follow. This LP contains the orginal track listing of Age Of Quarrel, but the songs are much more raw intense and uncompromising. Tough no bullshit HC right here.
CRUCIFIX "dehumanization" (Southern) - 12€
Reissue of the classic 1984 masterpiece by one of the best U.S. hc acts of all times. CRUCIFIX combines the political spirit of CRASS & CONFLICT with the DISCHARGE school of music. Along with DISCHARGE - "Hear Nothing", ANTISECT's - "In Darkness" and AMEBIX - "Monolith" this is one of the most important anarchopunk releases of the 1980s. "Prejudice", "No Limbs" and "See Through Their Lies" are highlights. Sothira's vocals are very powerful & unique for this style. Six-panel fold-out cover with a poster on one side, and lyrics/information on the other side.
CRUDE S.S. "killing for nothing" (Distortion) - 13€
Crude S.S. was formed in Sweden back in 1982, with their first self-released demo, and rapidly became one of the pioneers in the F.W.O.S.H.C. ("First Wave Of Swedish Hardcore") along with seminal acts like: Anti Cimex, Absurd, MOB47, Etc. by the time the S.S. was later added, since they felt Crude was a bit empty, and caused some confusion at the time, before people knew it stood for Crude Society System. They began to play several shows with an onslaught of various Swedish punk bands at the time, incl. the now legendary Finland tour with Anti Cimex. They quickly gained a name for themselves but primarily among their own community in Sweden. It wasnt until late 1983 they reached a broader audience with the release of their eternal classic EP "Wholl Survive", also appearing on the now legendary compilations "Cleanse The Bacteria", "Bollox To Christmas", and "Bollox To The Gonads". They fit in well with the established lot of Swedish hardcore punk of that time, although they managed to create a sound on their own which was somewhat unique at the time, still fast and aggressive, harsh vocals, shifting from slow and sludgy and unrefined anger defined the Crude S.S. sound, picking up influences from the early thrash like Celtic Frost/Hellhammer era crossed with Discharge, Venom, and Motorhead. Crude S.S. have definitely earned an eternal name for themselves among the international DIY hardcore punk community and have served as significant influence for countless bands from all corners of the globe. Very little is known about the time of their official break up as a band but the last official compilation album that they appeared on was released in 1986, thus leading one to believe this to be the approximate time of their final days. With very little available or even existing, in terms of official releases, they are easily one of the most bootlegged bands in international hardcore punk history next to the likes of Anti Cimex, Mob 47, GISM and Confuse (Japan).
Ths is official remastered reissue featured Ep tracks, compilations and demo´s, 19 songs in total. Remastered By Rune J (previous worked at Studio Lane known for Anti-Cimex, Shitlickers & Absurd).

EMILS "fight together for..." (Power It Up) LP + 7" - 18€
In the mid 1980s some german bands began to be more inspired by american hardcore punk. Bands like SPERMBIRDS, SKEEZICKS, JINGO DE LUNCH, H.O.A., UNWANTED YOUTH, S.O.S., ... and EMILS from Hamburg. There was all kind of rumors that actually the well know legendary hamburg punks from "SLIME" where fitting behind the "EMILS" moniker. If you read the band name from the back to the front, then these rumors get pushed but of course, that was nonsense.
The EMILS crossed on their debut album Hardcore Punk and with bits and pieces of Metal. D.R.I. had just invented the crossover and the influences from the states were quite big on the local punk-scene. The EMILS quickly became popular. Lyrics sung in german and dealt with all kind of topics, sometimes critical, political or just fun…the church, neo nazis, chernobyl just had gone off… songs about conformity and the stupidity of the scene, which was expressed in the song "Dumb Punk".
"Fight together for ..." was originally released in 1987 and perhaps for many people the first and best EMILS LP ...
The vinyl reissue includes a bonus EP with 4 previously unreleased live cover songs, as well as a 12-page booklet with liner notes / pictures.
THE ENEMY "the gateway to hell" (Puke n Vomit) - 17€
First vinyl repress since its original release in 1983 on Fall Out Records, another UK punk/oi classic for fans of Crux, Infa-Riot, Attak, and Abrasive Wheels. LP includes a 24" x 24" poster.
EXTINCTION OF MANKIND / PHOBIA - split (Agipunk) -
These two band need no introduction, both active since the early 90's they've continued developing their sound throughout the years and we are proud to release them. Extinction of Mankind are the heaviest and most perfect fusion of bands like Amebix, Antisect, Discharge and lots of metal, sheer brutality. Phobia play incredibly fast, brutal, tight and technically skilled grindcore with raging lyrics as it's supposed to be. This is the very first grindcore band released by Agipunk (Agigrind?) so we choosed the best!
FUERZA BRUTA "verdugo" (Rebellion) - 15€
Foreign Legion Records' first and second press, as well as Under Watchful Eyes' limited edition of just 100 copies of FUERZA BRUTA's "VERDUGO" LP literally flew out the door! Not that weird though, because those who are familiar with these hard-hitting savages from Chicago all agree on one thing - this was one of the, if not - the best release of 2017!
Despite this, it was nearly impossible to find a copy in Europe - until now that is! Because REBELLION RECORDS is proud to unleash this beast onto the European market for everyone to hear! So if you - for whatever reason - missed out before, now is your time to grab a copy of this explosive mix of brickwall Oi! and raucous hardcore-punk and to find out what this fuzz is all about! Oh, you might want to shape up on your Spanish though, because this record is completely En Español! One-sided vinyl comes with a silkscreened b-side.
G.I.S.M. "military affairs neurotic" (Noise not Music) - 13€
With originals going for up to 800 euros on ebay, this is the holy grail of Japanese hardcore. Released back in 1987, GISM's second album sounds as violent and noisy as their groundbreaking debut 'Detestation' but also embraces hints of NWOBHM and early industrial. Sounding like a cross between Iron Maiden, Conflict, Bathory,and early Ministry, this is the album that freed hardcore and reinvented it. Reissued as an exact repro of the original in PURPLE VINYL, with color insert and SILKSCREENED PVC sleeve. Also includes an exact repro of the giant 50x70 hyper rare POSTER that came with the first, mailorder-only, original copies! Be the envy of your squat!
GAUZE - st (Fanclub) - 12€
Legendary and one of the best ever hardcore punk bands from Japan, who formed in Fall 1981. Just as the title suggests this LP w/ insert contains a bunch of Gauze tracks taken from various compilations. You get 23 tracks from from City Rockers LP, Outsider LP, Farewell To Arms LP and Trash Till Death.
GERANIÜM "fear is the enemy" (Contraszt!) - 12€
GERANIÜM from Strasbourg/Besancon (France) celebrate their 10th year anniversary this autumn and take this opportunity to bring us their second full length album called “fear is the enemy”. Even though there had been some lineup changes, they stick to their unique style: A dark blend of Crust, 90s Screamo and Black Metal. With giving the songs room to develop, they create a soundscape of anger and despair. You could name ALPINIST, FINGERPRINT or MADAME GERMAN as musical influences, but I guess if you’re more or less into dark and blackened Hardcore you’ve heard about this band from France anyway.
GG ALLIN "always was, is and always shall be" (Euro Fan) - 14€

HELLBASTARDS "heading for internal darkness" (Threats from the Past) - 12€
Finally out on vinyl, the classic, definitive crust records from Hellbastard. In my opinion this is one of the finest and "purest" examples of the heroic era of crust. perfectly mixing the sounds of anarcho punk bands like Antisect and Amebix with Metal to create the modern crust sound. When I first started doing record distro this was one of the records I sold the most copies of, now 20 years later we get to sell it all over again. If you like metallic crust, don't miss the bus on this re issue.
HOAX - st (Self Released) - 12€
Western Massachusetts' HOAX presents their highly anticipated self-titled, self-released 12 song debut LP. After a relentless string of EP's and tours, this release marks a new standard in DIY hardcore punk. Taking their pummeling, mid-tempo sound and expanding it into something far sicker and hideous, they have leveled the horizon with a series of anthems as you've never heard before. A huge collaborative effort masterfully engineered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air studios, this LP features contributions from 14 of the underground's finest artists and comes housed in a full-color, double-scored folder enclosing 6 double-sided poster sized inserts.
HONGO "...y sembrarán los campos de odio“ (Contraszt!) - 10€
Since the beginning of the band in 2000, HONGO from Spain have been absorbing influences from all members previous bands (MADAME GERMEN, BLACK PANDA, NASHGUL etc.). With their newest effort "...y sembrarán los campos de odio" they consequently deliver a further development to their previous works. Creating a really intense dark atmosphere of epic post-metal/doom, you will find a encompassing trance sound on this record biased on the paths of bands such as NEUROSIS and ENVY, with a suffocated voice growling about a worried perspective of the human nature.
INFINITE VOID "endless waves" (Contraszt) - 12€
INFINITE VOID's final, posthumous recordings has been reanimated and clawed its way from the grave to consume our brains with its brilliants.

The album is a must for fans of Wipers, For Against, Sleater Kinney, Sonic Youth and alike.

JARADA from Tel Aviv / Haifa formed in 2017 and play very heavy and raw political hc/punk with lyrics in hebrew. JARADA means anxiety in hebrew and this is their debut LP. Their sound reminds of early israeli punkbands like NEKHEI NAATZA or DIR YASSIN. On the LP you'll find 13 songs with influences from NEGATIVE APPROACH to THE REPOS as well as elements of hardcore, punk and fastcore - yet still in a very own style. The bandmembers of JARADA are also active in a lot of other bands from Tel Aviv, e.g. SWEATSHOP BOYS, DELFIN, THE ORIONS and GHOST SPELL. Check this record out or you'll miss some very good stuff! Unfortunately no lyric translations but you can pick those up on the bandcamp page!

Third full length of JUANITA Y LOS FEOS from Madrid. Twelve new wave stompers clocking in at just over 30 minutes. Dark and catchy tunes reflect perfectly the current Spanish youth mood. Depressing and hopeless at times yet sarcastic and naïve.

Split release with Beat Generation in Spain.
KRONSTADT - st (Destructure)
Here we go again with a band from Lille, risen from the still burning ashes of TRAITRE, KRONSTADT is a new band from this really active punk scene. The ease option would be to compare them to their previous band but we won't. KRONSTADT offers some great punk-rock, heady and melancholic but also straightforward and catchy. A bunch of French punk bands from the 80's may come to mind while listening to this as well as more recent stuff but don't get wrong, KRONSTADT is nothing else but KRONSTADT. This 12" gathers anger, disobedience and urgency. KRONSTADT is also a band which succeeds at this hard task which writing french lyrics. This is a corelease with Une Vie Pour Rien, Senseless acts of Anger and Les Âmes d'Atala.
KURO "hardcore damnation 1983 - 1986" (Noise Not
Music) - 13€
As one of the greatest Japanese hardcore bands ever, Kuro has long been a favorite for those who want their hardcore laden with an extreme edge; for the time their sound was wildly chaotic, raw, distorted, and violently thrashed, ranking right beside fellow heavyweights GISM and CONFUSE when it comes to timeless Japanese hardcore of the early to mid-'80s. This 15 track LP collects several incredibly rare releases: their debut live 7" flexi from 1983, the scorching "Who the Helpless" EP, the "Fire" 7", and their tracks from the "Pinch and Ouch" compilation.
LIP CREAM "kill the ibm + bonus" (Fan Club) - 12€
Lip Cream alongside Gauze stand out as one of the classic early Japanese punk bands that incorporated a lot of hardcore and thrash influence into their powerful music. Lip Cream later went on to release a number of highly successful albums and instead of sticking to the more boppy punk sound they originally produced headed towards flat out heavy thrash that too is worthy of merit. This LP contains all of Lip Creams recorded output from 1984 - 1985. Tracks A1 to A4 were previously released as the "Lonely rock" 7" on Hold-Up Records in 1984. Tracks A5 to A9 were previously released as the "Nightrider More Than Fight" 7" on AA Records in 1984. Tracks A10 and B1 were previously released on the "Hardcore Unlawful Assembly" Compilation LP on AA records in 1984. Tracks B2 to B9 are from the "Kill The I.B.M." studio sessions from 1985. Tracks B10 and B11 were previously released on "The Punx" Compilation in 1985.
LITOVSK "dispossessed" (Symphony Of Destruction / Et Mon Cul C'est Du Tofu? / Abfall)
Hailing from the coastal town Brest in the far north-western corner of France Litovsk deliver a fulminant and outstanding 2nd album. Ten songs of dark and gloomy Postpunk/Wave. Think of THE ESTRANGED, NEW FLESH or RED DONS. A Band to reckon with: Litovsk is defintely one of the best Postpunk coming from Europe these days.
LYCANTROPHY st (Power It Up) LP - 10€
This blistering bit of czech fastcore is the perfect musical whirlwind to redirect any of your bubbling anger into. 20 tunes in barely 18 minutes is ultra-breezy for an actual full length album but this stuff is a pure concentrate of rage without any boring extra filling so you shouldn't feel short-changed. I'm guessing 22 minutes is probably the average length for a Lycanthrophy liveset! The female vocals bring about undeniable appeal, this lady's bloodcurdling shrieks are definitely impressive and her range of screaming rage suits me perfectly (not as shrill as most female grind vocalists I've heard so far!). You're also getting pissed off male back-up barking as well. Crushingly fast and sharp drum blasts, a massive barrage of grinding riffs with a thick, heavy low-tuned guitar sound, just solid, steadily grinding songs; this stuff is maybe going too fast to truly make a lasting impression, this is a spur of the moment, speed-ball of frenzy going at a hundred miles an hour, so a lot of the songs kind of blur together for me. The band is maybe guilty of overkilling it with the breakdown effect too, with the sound completely fading out/cutting off, I usually dig this stuff but it can get a little gimmicky at times... The sound production is very polished and very impactful. It could also use some more rawness in my opinion but otherwise I think I'll keep this cd handy to put on whenever I feel a little stressed out. This is clearly some of the most effective and fastest, screaming type of grind out there! I'm really digging the artwork, and there's an alternate black and white cover art plus a complete lyrics sheet in english language (and the vocals actually seem to stick to the lyrics closely, most of the time!) Sick cover art handled by SF&L homie Jeff Metal Sayers from WASTOID. The Limited repress contains one bonustrack.
MISSBRUKARNA "zooma in en zombie" (Skrammel) - 13€
Complete recordings of this great and seminal Swedish hardcore punk band of the early 1980s! Gatefold sleeve featuring a TON of photos reproduced beautifully in full color, a rad essay by Andreas of Totalitar about the band's history and importance, and mastering that makes this sound just as good as any bigger punk releases of the day.
Tracks A1 to A4 are from the 1980 split 7" EP with Panik, recorded in 1980.
Track A5 is from the tape compilation "Sommar-Mix!" (1982), recorded live @ Forsa Studio in 1980.

Tracks B18 to B20 recorded live in concert in 1987 @ Forsa Studio, previously unreleased.
MORBID "disgusting semla" (Fan Club) - 12€
Great collection featuring classic recordings by legendary Morbid! The band made famous by being led by Dead, one of the most iconic personas in black metal history, managed to deliver some of the most appreciated and cult stuff in the scene, even if it was very short lived. This LP contains the classic "December moon" demo, plus a rare rehearsal track ("My dark subconscious") and eight live songs! Absolutely mandatory!!!! File right next to Mayhem and Darkthrone! Limited black vinyl edition.
MOSKWA “1984 demo” (Warsaw Pact)
In 1983, in the grey, working-class city of Poland - Łódź, a band appeared which would soon be widely talked about throughout the country. In this period, a wave of fast and aggressive hardcore punk rolled through Europe, and thanks to international tape-trading, traces of it hit the Iron Curtain too. Three guys fascinated by the sound of Discharge, GBH and the Scandinavian HC of the era created absolutely brilliant material with a powerful sound and lyrics about our doomed future. After playing a few shows in the spring of 1984, the band entered a semi-recording studio in the garage of Paweł Haus to record their first demo. The material was sent to the Jarocin Festival, and the rest is history: the band immediately became one of the highlights of the punk scene in Poland. Even so, their debut on vinyl wouldn’t come for another five years. Because of a restrictive political system and censorship, many new great bands never had to chance to do truly good sounding, quality recordings, thus losing incredible potential from the golden years of Polish punk. What is left however are a bunch of demos and live recordings. This early period Moskwa demo is a must have for anyone into Eastern European hardcore history. This is the full version of their demo for the first time on vinyl. It had never been released on any format until 2001 when 14 tracks out of the recordings came out on CD with the unfortunate title “1984 Koncert” on SNFP. Mastering by Smok. Strictly limited to a one-time.
NEUROOT "right is might" (Havoc) - 10€ -
Deluxe reissue of this long lost material from 1980's Dutch hardcore band Neuroot. Many people know this band from their killer 7" and appearance on the "Peace" comp. Recorded 1985 at Emma in Amsterdam, this studio session was meant to be the Neuroot side of the split LP with Fratricide on Pusmort. Pushead pressed 25 test pressings of this LP but never put it into production, making it one of the rarest hardcore records of the 1980s. This is repressed as a 45 RPM 12", gatefold sleeve and sweet '80s style layout (no half-assed pixelated cover art here).
P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. "another day" (Static Shock) - 12€
So you want some P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S? Really? The members of this group have been in Pierced Arrows, Resist, Defiance, Detestation, Severed Head Of State and about every band to ever come from Portland. The music presented by the P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. is punk rock played with abandon. If you thought rock’n’roll and DIY don’t match, THIS will show you the opposite! This wild shit is 100% fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants rock'n'roll. The crazed singing and frantic guitar playing could be likened to Raw Power-era STOOGES material! Punk with the intensity of a shaken-up wasp’s nest. The vocals are strong as fuck! The guitars flail! The bass and drums pound on you! This is powerful rock'n'roll crafted by veteran punks! In spring 2015 they will tour whole Europe with their brand new album “Another Day”. It sounds like a crossover from NEW BOMB TURKS meets TURBONEGRO... This sounds like broken beer bottles and empty hearts, it’ll make you forget all your P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S!
PAST "sama" (Contraszt!) - 12€
2nd album of Warsaw based coldwave / post-punk band PAST! Influenced by sound of 80′ coldwave / punk music, this new record is darker and colder than their outstanding debut album with more lyrical references to depressive cruel reality. Coldwave appeal, in the same vein as Siekiera, at times reminding of X-Mal Deutschland. Perfect fusion of energy, melancholy and touching melodies – so specific and integral elements of this amazing band!
PETER & THE TEST TUBE BABIES "loud blaring punk rock" (Radiation)
The fourth full-length by the UK punk legends, originally released in 1985, sees a reissue on vinyl! This one is the epitome of childish, unrefined and perfect punk rock and roll. With such deep, poetic titles as 'We're Too Drunk', 'Pick Yer Nose (And Eat It)' or 'Beat Up The Mods', you know what you're getting!
THE PLASMATICS "new hope for the wretched" (Radiation)
The Plasmatics may not fit on everyone’s list of great forgotten bands, and you’d have a hard time finding anyone who calls 1980’s New Hope for the Wretched a forgotten classic. But, New Hope is a driving metal album of pure shocking filth. It sounds like Motorhead fronted by a female singer, and not just any female singer. It’s Wendy fuckin’ O. Williams. She is the queen of shock rock. Frankly, I’m not even a fan of shock rock, or generally 80’s rock at all, but the Plasmatics play it loud, reckless, and frenzied, allowing the punk in me to take hold of the sound. If you have any interest in 80’s punk or heavy metal, than New Hope for the Wretched needs to be in your collection.
POISON GIRLS "hex" (Water Wing) - 12€
The Poison Girls were a force of nature. Spat out of the belly of the UK punk scene, the Poison Girls paired up with a band down the street called Crass. The two bands played 100 shows together in the span of three years.They bonded on a conceptual and artistic way to approach punk. The Poison Girls were fronted by Vi Subversa, who was a child in the East end of London during the 2nd World War, an evacuee during the Blitz, became part of the Soho anarchist scene of the 50s, took part in the original CND march to Aldermaston, then a counter culture drop out of the 60s, finally founding herself in the mid 70s, aged 40, with two children, living in Brighton. Vi, along with Richard Famous, Lance D'Boyle and Bernhardt Rebours released HEX in 1979 on the bands own Xntrix label. It was a 12” 45rpm mini album and was released with the help of Small Wonder (Bauhaus, The Cure, Crass), a local independent record label. HEX was later reissued by Crass Records in 1981.The record was recorded at Southern Studios, produced by Penny Rimbaud, and engineered by John Loder, HEX is an extraordinary punk record which featured the group's lineup that was to last for the following 2 years. Cameo appearances included Vi Subversa's offspring Pete Fender and Gem Stone of Fatal Microbes and Eve Libertine of Crass. The album lays out the band's concerns, in Vi's searing lyrics, against a backdrop of deep, beautiful and sometimes scary music. Vi channels the anger and frustrations of any single mother living in what was (and still is) a mans’ world. From the opening salvo “If I had my time again, I’d like to come back as a man!” to the final “Reality Attack Reality Attack Reality” the record bristles with a fiery passion and intensity. The lyrics explore the expectations of normality, political correctness, pressures of conformity, pain and mental illness and the horrors of war. The music is diamond hard but with a tender edge, and the whole soundscape is overlaid with ‘found’ recordings of everyday life. Reissued for the first time in over 30 years with a sturdy tip-on gatefold cover.
POISON GIRLS "chappaquiddick bridge" LP + ONE SIDED EP/7" (Water Wing) - 15€
Chappaquiddick Bridge, the bands first full length LP, was originally released on Crass Records in 1980 and featured the same lineup as HEX. And like Hex, it shared the producer/engineer team of Penny Rimbaud and John Loder. This record sees Poison Girls at their most experimental stage. The songs dig deeper into the connections between the personal and political. Starting with an uncredited version of ‘State Control’ (one of the bands punkiest crowd pleasers) done in an ‘unplugged’ style, and ending with the similarly stripped down ‘Tender Lover’, this album broke all the rules of what a ’punk’ album should sound like. The songs are long. There are extended sonic workouts and codas, using synths, abused studio effects, electric violin, acoustic piano as well as ‘random’ electric guitar sounds and vocals. The mix has thundering drums up front that power the songs, and help create a barrage of rich sound.The lyrics speak of love, power, sexual politics, war and peace and most things in between. This is Vi at her most poetic, but with a razor sharp insight, and not holding back on using it. A truly original album. If it was removed, lost or destroyed, your original copy of Chappaquiddick Bridge came with a one-sided flexi disc containing the anthem "Statement". This 2014 reissue also includes "Statement" as a proper one-sided 7" vinyl. Sturdy tip-on gatefold cover.
POISON IDEA "blank blackout vacant" (Fan Club) - 12€
Though not quite the shotgun blast of an album that its predecessor, "Feel the Darkness", was, "Blank Blackout Vacant" is nonetheless an ample testimony to Poison Idea's unbridled power and force. Suffused with enough hate, pain, and rage to fuel an entire army, Jerry A.'s vocals, positively dripping with bile and venom, certainly cement his ideas with passion and force. "Understated" is not a word that is possible to use with this band. Poison Idea, from their inception in the very early '80s through their terminal point, shone with bitter, violent power. Unlike most Poison Idea albums from the '80s, "Blank Blackout Vacant" doesn't rely on speed to get its point across. In fact, a song like "Forever and Always," with its loose, Aerosmith-like groove and its saxophone, presages the type of rock & roll that bands like Rocket from the Crypt would make years later. Many other songs reside in the same vein. The cover of the New York Dolls' "Vietnamese Baby" provides an interesting touch, amping up the original, while retaining its desperate, low-rent feeling. While not quite the bellowing, fire-breathing beast that is "Feel the Darkness", "Blank Blackout Vacant" is a more varied, eclectic piece of work from this veteran American hardcore band.
THE PUNKS "lost & found 1973 to 1977" (Rave Up) DOUBLE LP - 18€
Finally out, after tons of requests, the definitive anthology in a gatefold de-luxe cover, of the bastards sons of the Stooges! The Punks were an American proto punk band from Wateford, Michigan from near Detroit, who were active from 1973-1977. They specialized in a hard-driving, sometimes thrashing sound that anticipated much mid-to-late 1970s punk rock and 1980s hardcore. The group came out of the last vestiges of the Detroit rock scene that produced bands such as MC5, Stooges, and Death, and with these acts they formed a musical bridge between the garage bands of the 1960s and the later punk movement that emerged in New York and London during the mid-1970s. In 1977 they changed their name to the End and moved to New York with hopes of making
their mark in the burgeoning punk rock scene there, but were unsuccessful, and broke up shortly thereafter. Though relatively unknown outside of Detroit and New York in their day, they have more recently garnered the interest and accolades of underground rock enthusiasts who consider them to be pioneers in the prototypical development of punk rock Be fast, this is your last chance to grab the definitive collection of one of the most powerful proto punk bands ever!
RESISTANCE 77 "thoroughbred men" (Radiation)
Making its deserved, yet first ever return to vinyl, it's the 1984 full-length by the acclaimed Oi! unit from Nottingham. 'Thoroughbred Men' is a smoking, somewhat obscure piece of UK street punk history!
RICH KIDS ON LSD "keep laughing" (No Futuro) - 14€
Classic California punk band that crossed the boundaries into hardcore with talented musicianship and a positive attitude. This is their debut album from 1985.
"complete S.H.I.T." (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
It could have been Total Shit, Utter Shit, All Shit or any other number of puns but you lucky fuckers get Complete Shit - the 21 track round up of everything these Toronto Shitters have committed to 7” Vinyl from 2014 to 2016 on Static Shock Records, Iron Lung, Lengua Armada Discos and La Vida Es Un Mus. Shit came from the womb fully formed with a stunning Demo from 2012 but that was no surprise as in there ranks was ex members of Violent Future, Urban Blight and Purity Control. The sound is raging hardcore with stomping drums, dirty guitar work with and reverbed vocals. I know you’ve heard that before but the trick is that Shit write songs that stick in your head and a strong production by Jonah Falco. These tracks are too good to be lost on sold out 7”s.
SCATHA "after the dust settles" (Agipunk) DOUBLE LP - 16€
Scatha from Scotland is the band formed in 1993 by the ashes of Scottish celtic tribal HC band Sedition and Disaffect. Although their activity term was short (1995 to 2005), their music was so influencial, almost globally just like former Sedition. This double Lp features in their entirety "Respect, Protect, Reconnect" '96 Lp, "Fuck the system" '97 Ep, "Birth, life and death" '98 Lp and tracks from the split Ep with Dagda. Comes with thick booklet with lyrics. It must be said Scatha is less celtic /tribal compared to Sedition but much simple, metalish with attitude and screaming "FUCK THE SYSTEM", total raging metalish crust HC attack!! Just like Discharge and Chaos U.K.. Scatha has created another standard of hardcore, still now active as a new band called "T.R.I.B.E." which we must not miss!
SMIERC "godzina pusta" (NNNW) LP - 14
"Smierc" means „death” in Polish - but this new band is actually from... Sweden. Their debut album is a powerful tribute to Polish punk (and beyond), sung in Polish. As far as I know it’s the first such an effort in the world - just try to pronounce their name correctly! They describe their music as straight forward, yet melodic, d-beat orientated punk. Well, I find their interest in Polish bands you love... POST REGIMENT, DEZERTER, HOMOMILITIA are all „heard”, but the effect is so original. Includes members of IDIOT IKON, IMPERIAL LEATHER, ABDUCTEE S.D.
SOCIAL DISTORTION "white light, white heat, white trash" (Fan Club) - 12€
In 1996 Social Distortion released their 5th album, White Light, White Heat, White Trash. The line-up featured a new drummer Chuck Biscuits (Black Flag/Danzig and many more). White Light, White Heat, White Trash was the last album with Dennis Danell on guitar (he sadly died in February 2000).
The album received Social Distortion's highest ever chart position, entering the Billboard 200 album chart at #27. It also includes radio favourites "I Was Wrong", "When The Angels Sing" and a superb cover version of the Stones' "Under My Thumb".
Stylistically, the album is harder and considered a return to their hardcore punk roots. Social Distortion is nothing less than a legend in the punk genre and still continues to receive worldwide respect and support. Comes with insert.
SPECTRES "nothing to nowhere" (Sabotage) - 12€
“Nothing to Nowhere” is the Spectre’s second full length release, following up 2010′s “Last Days. This new record features ten songs that explore a range of influences from early west coast punk to British post-punk and anarcho, early death rock and new wave.
SPINE "time has gone" (Assault) - 12€
After almost 2 years in the making, the debut SPINE LP is here at last. 14 songs of pure muscle including a new and improved re-recorded demo track. While the previous SPINE material was slightly more Boston HC influenced, this material heads more in the direction of INFEST and YOUTH OF TODAY while still retaining that SSD flavor. Don't miss out on SPINE'S best record to date...this shit will tear you apart.
SS DECONTROL "the kids will have their say" (Suicida Discos) - 12€

One of THE classics of the early 80s hardcore scene. Printed lyric insert included.
THE STALIN "discography 1982-1984" (Fan Club) DOUBLE LP – 20€
The Stalin began in 1980 and blew away all previous attempts at Japanese punk rock with their radical, evolving style. The band was founded by Michiro Endo, a 32 year-old socialist activist, Vietnam veteran, and street singer who had spent time in the West. He chose the name because "the name Stalin is very hated by most people in Japan, so it is very good for our image." Because he was a socialist, he also explained the name as meaning "the downside of every good idea." I highly recommend the Stalin to everyone., their early albums are classics. This double LP compilation includes their 'Stop Jap" LP (1982), Mushi LP (1983), Go Go 12" (1983) and compilation songs from "welcome to 1984".
