    This split Lp was originally released in 1993 on No Time To Be Wasted Records, a Belgrade-based label run by the singer of Brainstorm. BoD's side is entitled "反戦-反動物実験" (meaning "Anti-War Anti-Animal Experimentation", clearly the two main themes in the band's lyrics) and was recorded in February, 1993. This Lp was actually the first vinyl output of BoD, as the band had only recorded a demo tape before, "Not Lie", in 1992. The eight songs of "反戦-反動物実験" are perfectly recorded, I don't think songs like "Battle of disarm" or "Anti vivisection" ever sounded better than on this Lp. The guitar riffs are thick and thrashy, even slightly convoluted at times, and bring to mind Crude SS or Lobotomia more than Doom. On the other side of the Lp, entitled "Join no Army, Police and Politician", is Brainstorm. Their 1989 demo and the 1990 Ep are clearly early crust classics. The nine Brainstorm songs from that split were recorded in May, 1993, at a time when the war was certainly not over in Yugoslavia. Lyrical content, which, despite unfortunate losses in translation, still reflected the anger, the outrage and the urgency of that time and place. Written from an anti-state perspective, the songs read like cries against patriotism, conformity, blind faith, media and political manipulation, the brutality of war... No longer a mere punk trope used to denounce an imaginary endless war, calls for peace and disgust at the sheep mentality designated a very real situation.

  • Limited edition of 300 copies on transparent blue vinyl with side-B silkscreened. Official reissue on vinyl of BRAINSTORM‘s debut Demotape “Only the dead see the end of the war” (1989). Among the multitude of cult demos worshipped by the most dogged tape-traders back in the day, this little treasure from former Yugoslavia has always been a highlight here between the FOAD’s ranks. Their style was perfectly settled in the growing Grind/Britcore extremity that was exploding those years thanks to early releases of labels like Earache, Peaceville and Manic Ears. BRAINSTORM was totally devoted to that formula, delivering a manic raw barrage of Grinding HC with a massive dose of riff-oriented Thrashcore catchiness. It reminds of DOOM, UNSEEN TERROR, DEVIATED INSTINCT, HERESY, “Scum”-era NAPALM DEATH and other pioneers of that scene. This link was consolidated by the fact that the singer of the band lived in the UK for a long period those years, attending that scene and bands like DOOM. (FOAD Records)
  • Reissued for the first time 40 years after the official release date. Yugoslavian punk rock classic. "You can say what you want a lot of good bands came from former Yugoslavia and the following belongs irrevocably to that. Električni Orgazam (Electric Orgasm) is a Serbian punkrock band from Belgrade, formed 1980 by Srđan 'Gile' Gojković (vox + guitars), Ljubomir 'Jovec' Jovanović (guitars), Marina Vulić (bass) and Ljubomir Đukić (keys + organs). Originally starting as a combination of new wave, punk and post-punk, the band later slowly changed their style, becoming a mainstream rock act. They were one of the most notable acts of the former Yugoslav rock scene. This is their debut album, released in 1981 by the renowned Jugoton label, featuring eleven songs of fairly straight-forward punk sound with a small dose of post punk aesthetics. The album had positive reactions by both the audience and the critics, including a review of the album by the NME journalist Kris Bohn, who stated that the band was one of the most exciting non-British acts. Together with Pankrti, Paraf and Pekinška Patka they are among my favorite bands from the Balkans. Catchy songs, great music and properly at all times." Official reissue, gatefold, 180-gram, on yellow vinyl. (Croatia Records)
  • Skopje, North Macedonia: hometown not only of Mother Teresa, but also of Fol Jazik - the first Macedonian punk rock band ever! Formed in 1978 by singer Vlado Hristov aka KRLE, they played a psych-garage influenced punk and were renowned for their bizarre look and powerful shows. In 1979 they disbanded and shorty after reformed with a new line up, before definitively calling it quits in 1980. Despite their short career, they’re still considered one of the most influential Yugoslavian bands, as proved by this brilliant 1979 single. (Rave Up records)
  • Reissued for the first time 40 years after the official release date. Yugoslavian new wave classic. Haustor was a new wave band from Zagreb, Croatia (then Yugoslavia), active during the 1980s. The core of the band was formed in 1977, when singer and occasional guitarist Darko Rundek met bassist Srđan Sacher. Two years later they formed Haustor with Boris Leiner (drums) and Ozren Štiglić (guitar). In 1980 they added a keyboardist and a brass section, and Haustor released its first album, "Haustor", in 1981. All of the songs were written by either Sacher or Rundek, and the Sacher-penned "Moja prva ljubav" ( "My first love" ) became a hit. After a pause, caused by the members' obligations in the Yugoslav People's Army, their second album, titled "Treći Svijet" ( "Third world" ), was released in 1984. However, soon afterwards Sacher left the band, leaving Rundek as the sole composer and lyricist of the band. Haustor released two more albums, "Bolero" (1985) and "Tajni grad" (1988), before breaking up in 1990. Official reissue, gatefold, 180-gram, on red vinyl. (Croati Records)

  • 40th anniversary Paraf debut and the most important Croatian punk album all the time. In the spirit of the original release of "a dan je tako lijepo počeo" (And the day started so nicely), Dallas Records presents a new special edition of the first album by the punk band Paraf. It is a key album of the Yugoslav and one of the key albums of the continental European punk scene. This most important Croatian punk album was released on June 5, 1980, and flashed the first lineup of Parafov into the anthology of local and European punk subculture, as well as into the annals of regional pop culture. A special edition of the original mix mix brings four bonus tracks "Rijeka" and "Moj život je novi val" from their live album, released in 1979, a single version of "Narodne pjesme" from the compilation New Punk Wave 78-80 and a performance of the cult song "Goli otok" from live performance in 1979 in Pula. The band debut album A dan je tako lijepo počeo... (And The Day Started Out So Nicely...) was released by ZKP RTLJ in the Spring of 1980. Due to provocative lyrics, the album was classified as kitsch product, and thus liable to additional taxation, despite subsequent changes to some of the lyrics as well as the selection of a different album cover. In line with the punk rock ideology, the band addressed several topics which were at the time new to the Yugoslav rock: the songs featured ironic usages of communist slogans, mocked, at the time, one of the most popular bands, Bijelo Dugme, in the song "Pritanga i vaza", insulting the police in the censored version of "Narodna pjesma", and dealt with social themes typical for a port city. The album was produced by the band's close associate Goran Lisica "Fox", assisted by Igor Vidmar. Even 40 years later, the album “And the day started so beautifully” sounds strong, destructive, dangerous, daring and fresh. Valter Kocijančić, Zdravko Čabrijan and Dušan Ladavac Pjer successfully combined initial punk simplicity with relentless juvenile rebellion against boring everyday life in 14 songs released on the album. That’s why this album sounds so strong today. As Igor Vidmar, one of the producers of the album, said: “The initials were an anticipation of the coming crisis, in the sense of a precursor to social disappointment and the efforts of socially subordinate classes to express their individuality in any way. ” The original press release that accompanied the album reads: “The initials sing about a street that can be ridiculous and humorous, about the difficult and torturous street of teenage doubts, passions, separate mythologies and one's own perspective… so this album brings irony, ridicule, madness and free access to the taboos of the average petty-bourgeois everyday life. Until then, almost unimaginable in Yugoslav popular music, such an approach provided Paraf with an undeniable cultural pedestal. ” ‘The initials predicted that there would be a breakdown of the system that had been maintained on army and militia apparatus after Tito’s death. They shattered social illusions about the eternity of this system, in the form of punk, which at first they didn’t even know what it sounded like, but they sensed it had to be easy, fast, daring, provocative and loud ’. Aleksandar Dragash 'The Great Castle, the National Song and its sarcastically murderous refrain' There is no one better than our police 'or the equally destructive Long Live Yugoslavia, whose whole text is composed of political slogans and ideological' great truths', still holds water today as well as striking language singles Sex of the Pistols who provoked anarchy in Britain and celebrated the Queen or the call of the Clashes for a white uprising." ‘If Paraf were just the first punk rock band in Croatia, that would be more than enough, let alone the fact that after the first album they left behind three punk rock anthems for all time in this area. The first album "A dan je tako lepo pocelo" is measured by all punk rock dimensions and today the best album of the Croats. ' (Dallas Records)
