CAPITALIST ALIENATION- s/t 12″EP (Alienation Records, Canada, 1987)

p1060546.JPGp1060547.JPGOn a day like this, only a record like this can help. Buzzsaw, ultra pissed, angry, primtive and overall extremely unfriendly HC. CAPITALIST ALIENATION, who mysteriously disappeared after this monument of good bad music, had a demo tape (“Makes me shit”) released a year prior to this and next time I feel alienated, I shall post that one too cause it’s even GREATER than this!
The cover of this slab was drawn by Away from VOIVOD, as you will already know. When VOIVOD playd in Europe in 1987, Away had a whole bunch of them (1’000 made in total) with him and handed them out to everybody who wanted or not wanted to have one. Wise men know that some of these freebies ended up trashed by Thrash Metallers. May Gawd have mercy on their black souls.
Speaking of men – there’s a woman singing. Would you have guessed?

And now, thank me, send me flowers, bottles of good red wine and rare rekurrz.

    this is what makes this blog unique: this guy just follows his own vision. i can’t always follow (like with this one) but overall it’s fascinating to see such a wide range of POWERFUL music coming from a veteran like Erich. i also love this blog cause it’s not a “cult” thing, a hype machine or retro. please carry on bloggin as long as your collection lasts and then write the godamn book 🙂

    Seriously, this was one of your best posts recently. This is swinging as we say in Hackney. More like it please. I love the drums.

    I just get my copy on a garage sale for a dollar.
    22 years later.
    I saw the Away signature on the first view.
    Merci pour les informations!

    This was an era ( I would put it between 1983 and 1987 ) that is hard to describe for most of us who lived it were so constantly stoned… Not many survived…
    This was the age of the Burning Talls…..
