APPENDIX- s/t 7″EP (Propaganda Records, Finland, 1983)

appendix_front.jpgappendix_back.jpgAPPENDIX were one of the first popular european HC bands that were adored by young Metalheads like myself. Playing this 7″ (which is often going by the name of “Huora”, the title of the first track, actually), it’s no wonder: A no holds barred powerhouse, thick production and relentless power in your fucking face piece of plastic! All four songs shred equally here! The band’s ability of “sounding fast” reminds me of GAUZE’s “Fuckheads” 12″.
The bands first LP, recorded in the same session as this EP, came in two different version. After the original finish release, the cover and title was altered and it was rereleased as under the english title of “Money is not my Currency” on the notorious german Rock-o-Rama label. Although this LP still blasts, it’s kind of a drag. APPENDIX to me were a typical 7″-band!
This slab too came in two versions – 2 covers, actually. This is the rare first press cover with the “Berlin Squat” picture on front. Enjoy!

    Nice post! I have a copy of this with the other sleeve I can take a picture of it (I don’t have a scanner) and send it to you. Do you happen to have a copy of the first Riisteyty 7″? I have a second pressing and I have been looking for a good quality image to print out of the original cover. That record is also post-worthy 🙂

    Hi Scott – a fine cover shot would be nice for documentation here. I don’t have the first Riistetyt 7″; I sold all my R. records a while ago on ebay, couldn’t stand them anymore.

    This is a good record, but their LP came out on Rock-A-Rama label, which among other things put out the racist Skrewdriver stuff in Deutschland.

    Thier LP did come out on Rock-o-rama, but was licensed from their Finnish label, so I don’t know if the band had any involvement.

    Yeah Jamie – but what do APPENDIX have to do with racist SKREWDRIVER records? Nothing.

  11. All Finnish record cover can be found on http://www.finnmusic.net/
    Scott, Riistetyt 1st 7″ was my first post and the record covers are there.
    Appendix’s 2nd “Top of The Pop” is also good specially the 1st song, which could easily be compared with the 1st releases. They have a new album out, not bad but never will be close to this gem.

    @anarkistattak
    That is the 1st pressing.
    Does anyone have pressing numbers on each pressing of this 7″?
