    If you went down the wrong alleyway, took a shortcut through the park or crossed the wrong open space after dark in the UK in the 1970s, you stood a fair chance of being accosted by someone with a big mouth, low morals and some gurning mates to impress, usually reeking of fags and cheap booze and always ready to put the boot in. And, before you could say, “sickening violence”, a short but chaotic scuffle would ensue and a winner eventually emerge, battle scarred and bruised. The boot boy was the worst kind of hooligan. There wasn’t anything you could do or say to appease him. You had the same chance as a fly caught up in a spider’s web. Zero. Your best bet was to run. His intent was always to give you, and vicariously the rest of the world, a good kicking. Thugs, long-haired louts, short-haired louts; the anti-hippy. Birds, booze, bovver and football on their criminal minds. So fasten your braces for a white knuckle-duster ride. 14 bovver rock bruisers for all of you peace-loving losers. Somebody’s going to get their head kicked in tonight... Put the boot in.

  • Being bored back in the 70’s, could turn you into a punk rock hero. Or not? Anyway, after six series of well documented british punk we come to the seventh volume. Safety pins on and down the road then. First we’ve got The Singles with their single “Adolf Hitler/Mercy“, a nice starter of urban british punk. In The Gym happily follow to kick your heads off and then Katz with a satisfying combo of six songs. Being a band from Portishead, does not necessarily means that you’ll be named Portishead, to the contary Chaos UK is fine. The hardcore veterans offer their single “Summer of Hate/I Wanna Be Left Alone” in the name of alive and pacey punk. Then The Hobbs arrive for a couple of rounds at the local but only when The What and The Vendettas are in town. The compilation closes with Skidmarx, a nervous quartet from the east, and the straight punk by North Londoners System X. Rather than searching around for lost and forgotten singles of this particular bristish punk period, the Bored Teenagers series puts a disordered era in order and a nostalgic smile in your face.

  • apanese compilation with Outo, Squad, S.O.B., and Poison Arts. Taken from the beta master version used for the live japanse TV broadcast in 1988. "Another month goes by and we get another Japanese hardcore bootleg from some obscure corner of the world. This one is interesting as it goes a little further than the typical “press the officially reissued CD to vinyl” theme. Complete Death was a VHS release featuring live sets by several legendary Japanese hardcore bands at one of the most exciting times for the scene. No doubt you’ve seen the amazing Death Side footage, which I believe comes from this show. The video stuff is amazing—pro-shot with good lighting and multiple cameras—but the audio sounds great too. This LP collects the audio from Sqwad, Outo, S.O.B., and Poison Arts. While it’s not a studio recording, the audio quality is top-notch and well worth hearing if you’re a fan. The only one I wasn’t familiar with was Sqwad. They were a band featuring ex-members of Ghoul, whose song “Oi!” they do here, and their two originals also sound like a Burning Spirits-ified Ghoul. Outo, S.O.B., and Poison Arts are all at the top of their game, and Outo in particular delivers a ripping set of tracks. This is well worth your time if you’re a Japanese hardcore head, and here’s hoping we see a second volume with the Tetsu Arrey, Death Side, Final Bombs, and Systematic Death tracks also on the original video."

  • 40th Anniversary Edition, 180g vinyl, Gatefold 2LP. First released in 1972 on Elektra Records, the compilation is among the only ‘various artists' titles to consistently wind up on published lists of ‘all-time top albums'. Nuggets spawned more than 200 like-minded collections under such titles as Pebbles and Back From The Grave, and is a consistent compilation favourite and has carved out a genre of its own.
    While it's not the extended, long-form work of a single artist whose muse simply cannot be contained by a mere two sides of vinyl (the ostensible purpose of this column), the first NUGGETS compilation deserves applause and appreciation for what it did, because what it did was pretty special. Compiled by Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group guitarist and rock writer extraordinaire) and released in 1972, NUGGETS turned on listeners to the work of artists whose muses fit perfectly into that most rock 'n' roll of formats—the three (or so)-minute single. Though most of the collection's 27 tracks fall under the rough rubric of garage rock, there are many influences in play here, and many hits (both actual and would-be) that would have influence on artists for generations to come. There aren't many true pop hits on NUGGETS. Count Five's immortal "Psychotic Reaction" is the biggest of them all, having topped out at Number Five in 1966. The Electric Prunes' "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)" and The Standells' "Dirty Water" both grazed the Top Ten, and there were a few other Top 40 tracks in the mix, but the real gems are the ones you'd probably never heard before hearing them on NUGGETS. Take The Nazz's "Open My Eyes." That's Todd Rundgren singing on that very Who-ish track "Open My Eyes," but even though it hit Number 112 on the national singles chart in 1968, you probably had never heard it unless you were listening to WMMR-FM in Philly, which played it a lot. Likewise, you might have been familiar with Van Morrison and Them's 1965 rendition of the blues "Baby, Please Don't Go," but folks outside Detroit likely had not been introduced to The Amboy Dukes' 1967 take on it (nor had they been introduced to the Duke's wild-man guitarist, Ted Nugent). If you'd stumbled across "A Public Execution" in 1965, you might've thought it was something off the last Bob Dylan record, but it was just Mouse (or Mouse and the Traps, as they're usually referred to) doing a great version of electric Dylan, mostly for audiences in Tyler, Texas. There are so many other great tracks—by the likes of The Seeds, The Shadows of Knight, the Knickerbockers and more—it's best to grab a copy (on Rhino vinyl, preferably) experience it for yourself, and thank Lenny Kaye, if you ever run into him. His archival instincts and flat-out love of rock 'n' roll helped NUGGETS influence a generation or three of rock bands over the last four-plus decades. These songs are still a wonder to hear. Drop the needle and turn them up. (Rhino Records)
  • Raw Records was one of the UK's first ever independent labels, having been formed in 1977 by Lee Wood. This was the second compilation they issued in early 1978 following up the ‘Raw Deal!’ album (Damgood 209). This reissue includes 4 bonus tracks including the ultra rare ‘Into the 80’s’ by The Now. 16 of the label's best tracks feature here alongside a comprehensive discography of one of the most important but vastly underrated indie labels of our time. Bands such as The Users, Killjoys, Lockjaw and The Unwanted later provided members for the likes of The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, UK Subs and Dexy's Midnight Runners whilst the scarcity of Raw's releases made them highly prized collectors' items. Two Soft Boys tracks from one of the rarest Raw singles fetaure here, unavailable elsewhere. Essential listening for any an Killeded by Death/Bloodstains Across.

  • Reissue of this killer 1985 Japanese punk compilation including Gai, Kuro and more! Brazil import limited to 188 copies. "Fan Club reissue of this 1985 Japanese punk / hardcore compilation with great sound and questionable graphic design, as is the way these days. While we’re all into Japanese hardcore here at Sorry State, none of us claimed to be too familiar with Pinch and Ouch. While I might have mp3s sitting on a hard drive somewhere, it’s not a compilation I’ve spent much time with. It does feature three bands I like—Gai, Kuro, and Aggressive Dogs—and three others I don’t know, and none of them are un-punk outliers you sometimes get on old compilations. All of the bands recorded their tracks for Pinch and Ouch in the same studio, so there’s a consistent sound and high fidelity throughout. While the production is cleaner than on Gai and Kuro’s other records (and, consequently, not quite as powerful), it’s interesting to hear them so clearly. It’s disorienting but fascinating, like finding a high-resolution photograph of a historical figure you’d only seen in paintings. I wouldn’t say any of the bands I already knew deliver their best material here (Gai’s songs are a little silly, including a cover of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” and Kuro’s are powerfully played but too clean), but it’s all worth hearing. The three bands I didn’t know—No-Cut, Gedon, and Gess—aren’t undiscovered gems, but are interesting, all of them having a UK punk and oi! influence. The punkiness of Pinch and Ouch sets it apart from most Japanese punk compilations. While I wouldn’t start my journey into Japanese hardcore with Pinch and Ouch, it’s a solid comp that is a little more noteworthy because of its great recording quality."

  • Black vinyl, with 44 page booklet. Two LPs of Finnish rarities from the era right after punk rock had surged over the land at the turn of the 1980’s. The 22 fervent artist and bands on this record were riding on top of the new wave. Among the 27 tracks a variety of the most imaginative sounds can be heard. The music varies from naive pop to deformed rock and from mod revival to synthesizer bliss to distorted noise. Most of the music originates from c-cassettes that previously have been – if circulated at all – duplicated only in tiny quantities to be distributed among the creators’ circle of friends. The recordings have been professionally restored and remastered for a sonic adventure in a previously unexplored realm in the history of Finnish popular music. The entity is supplemented by a 44 page booklet that reveals the background of the 22 artists and bands. From the international and domestic cultural turbulence the new wave musicians picked up an encouraging message that seemed not only to say that “You can do it” but also to “Trust even your most outrageous visions”. One can only wonder whether their chosen form of art was also a battle cry against the grayness of Finlandization, restrictions on production of popular music and overall backwardness and narrowmindedness. Whatever the truth, the artists on this compilation rarely dared to dream of a recording contract. Even those who did sign one opted to ignore the star cult and cherished the creation of their own music on their own terms. The end result documented here is unparalleled music, which at times follows traditional song structures – and at other times has no point of reference at all. (Svart Records)
  • Part 3 of our Finnish punk 7" reissue series. The aim of the Punk elää 7″ box series is to offer people the chance to digest these often impossibly rare and expensive records in their original 7 inch format. Each box comes with an insert with text from Fenno-punk historian Juho Hänninen. The third box set Ne tekee meistä tähtiä offers three replicas of privately pressed Finnish punk seven inches from 1980. BRUPS started in Vaasa in the late 1970’s. The band occasionally played shows around Vaasa area, and even performed their song ‘Rampton’ on national television. The lead singer moved to Sweden in 1982, and eventually the band split up. BRUPS returned in 2000 with a new lineup, but this highly sought after single is the only thing they originally released in 1980. NIRVANA started in Ruovesi in 1976. In their early days the band mostly played cover songs, and performed live in Ruovesi and surrounding cities. In 1980 the self-released singles from Finnish punk & new wave bands inspired Nirvana to make their own record, which is included in this box set. The B-side of the original single is very distorted, which was caused either by a damaged master tape or a mistake at the pressing plant. This reissue has been carefully restored and remastered to make the B-side sound as good as possible. OUTO ELÄMÄ was formed in Joensuu in 1979. The band was very active in the local scene and played dozens of shows in their first six months. Eventually they recorded a demo at their friends’ rehearsal place with the intention of getting a proper record deal. Unfortunately the band were left unsigned, and the complete demo wasn’t released until 1998, but the band self-released two of the tracks as a 7″ single, which has become a highly sought after collectors item and now sells for ridiculous prices.

  • 70´s Proto-Metal… if you understand it as a sub-genre of the Progressive Rock universe, it´s no surprise that most lists that you will find in the net suggest that it was mainly an album orientated affair. But it pays dividends big time to dig a little deeper and soon you will find some of the most exciting 45s from that era. Located somewhere in the middle between Proto-Punk, Bonehead Crushers and the harder side of Glam Rock with a healthy dose of Black Sabbath or Τhe Stooges thrown in, 70´s Proto-Metal offers some of the most primal assaults ever laid down to 7inch.

  • Originally available only on cassette in 1988 as the second release from one of the most active hardcore punk labels in Poland, QQRYQ. This release was unique. It was the only international compilation to document the punk scene from the Warsaw Pact bloc in the 1980's. There were substantial difficulties getting music and publications from neighboring countries, and more so from western Europe than from the east of Europe due to harsh border control, censorship, and repression. For that reason, this compilation is an important and unique document from the era. Recordings and zines were often smuggled across borders, and the risk for doing so was real, as evidenced by the complete confiscation of the "Inside" zine and the arrest of Micha from Namenlos at the Polish/East German border. Establishing contact between Piotr Pietia Wierzbicki of QQRYQ and Herne Pietzker, who was a main influencer in the east Berlin scene, resulted in an exchange of information, reports with the GDR being published in the “QQRYQ” fanzine, and a stronger connection between people in east Berlin and Warsaw. In addition, Polish bands began to get invited to perform in Germany and vice versa. The legacy of this cooperation, one which started over thirty years ago, is still used by new generations of punk bands. A similar situation occurred with the Hungarian scene, where the band Trottel was a frequent guest at shows in Poland. The compilation "We are the flowers in the red zone" contains recordings of bands from East Germany, Hungary and Poland and is marked as a “vol.1”. The second part of the sampler was supposed to contain recordings from other countries of the Eastern Bloc, but this never happened. The bands included in this first compilation are ANDREA’S AUSLAUF, WARTBURGS FÜR WALTER and the combined forces of NAMENLOS and KEIN TALENT from East Germany (recorded live on their illegal tour in Poland 1987, organised by QQRYQ). The Hungarian scene was represented by DIE TROTTEL and BIZTONSAGI TANACS, while Poland offered recordings of the bands DEZERTER, TRYBUNA BRUDU, and A.P.S.F. (i.e. ANTI-POLISH SCIENCE FICTION). The vinyl reissue of the compilation contains the full version of the recordings (some of the tapes were cut off), and two booklets: the first with liner notes from Pietia and an interview with him from the book "Warschauer Punk Pact" by Alexander Pehlemann, tour stories about Polish shows from the German bands Namenlos and Wartburgs Für Walter, and reprints of East German reports from “QQRYQ” zine along with archival photos. Booklet # 2 is a faithful reproduction of the "Inside" # 1 zine from East Berlin, which was printed in Warsaw and smuggled across borders, where the entire edition was confiscated by the police and many years later exactly one and only one copy was found in the files of the Stasi. On the occasion of the anniversary of the fall of the Eastern Bloc, this is a great opportunity to recall how the cooperation inside the "Happy Eastern Bloc" looked like as we present raw punk recordings created behind the Iron Curtain from this important period. This is coming out as a co-release / cooperation between Warsaw Pact Records (Poland), Edition Iron Curtain Radio (a division of Major Label), Zonic (Germany) and Trottel Records (Hungary). https://warsawpact.bandcamp.com/album/we-are-the-flowers-in-the-red-zone-lp
  • Here it is at last. A legit re press of this Finnish hardcore classic from 1984. This is repressed under license by Power It Up records of Germany with North American distribution by Havoc. I know that comps get a bad rap these days as random assemblies of bands "throwaway tracks". You have to put yourself back in time to the good old days of 1984 when hardcore was still a new, raw and urgent form of music. At that time comps made a lot of sense to document the explosive new scene and most bands chose their BEST songs to put on a comp rather than their worst. Yalta Hi Life was originally released by Finland's Barrabas records in 1984. Featured are three to eight tracks each by Terveet Kadet, Varaus, Aparat, Kaaos, Aivoproteesi and KTMK. I'm particularly fond of this style of comp because you get about a 7" worth of material from each of the six bands. The TK and Kaaos songs are raging, and most people will probably buy this because those bands are pretty well known. KTMK is at their most hardcore/punk sounding on this release. Varaus can't be touched on any format. Aparat is not so well known, but still tear it up. And Aivoproteesi are really good and pretty unknown outside Finland as I think this material is their only release. A really solid comp start to finish if you are a die hard or just getting into 80's Finnish hardcore. (Power It Up Records)
