ADRENALIN O.D.- Let’s barbeque 7″EP (Buy Our Records, USA, 1983)


New Jersey’s everywhere! First, Joe had his funtastic overview of the Garden State scene of the 80s, then I followed him by posting MENTAL ABUSE. Next up was Peter with his awesome post of CHRONIC SICK’s twelver, one of HC’s most wanted records. Dave posted the 2nd A.O.D. 7″ and here we go again – […]

PAUL CHAIN- Les Temps du Grand Frère 7″ (Flight Nineteen Records, Switzerland, 1991)


Yeah? Yeah!!!!!!! Violence of the Sun.mp3 Paradise of the Poor.mp3

MENTAL DECAY- s/t 7″EP (Buy Our Records, USA, 1984)


When I read Joe’s excellent New Jersey Special, I suddenly remembered MENTAL DECAY. I used to play the shit out of this EP, but as it goes, I must have gotten tired of it. Now that I played for the maybe first time in twenty years, it totally blew me away. And I was proven […]

WEAPON- It’s a mad mad World, b/w Set the Stage alight 7″ (selfproduced, UK, 1980)


WEAPON belonged to the very first generation of the NWOBHM and although their 7″ from 1980 has not only hit potential (on the a-side), but is also of noticeable force and drive, this little black pearl has sunk into oblivion, apart from the connaisseur circles at least. Let’s change this! “It’s a mad mad world” […]

NERORGASMO- s/t 7″EP (Babby Records, Italy, 1985)


Italy’s NERORGASMO (translates as “Black Orgasm” – wonderful!) released one of the darkest and most original sounding EPs of the 80s. Backwards message, weird sounds and ultra evil, CCM-like riffing, creating a sickly sweet atmosphere of lascivious cross-downturning. Just the way we love it so much! What is anarchy and subversion if there’s not some […]

URBAN WASTE- s/t 7″EP (Mob-Style Records, USA, 1982)


Peter just posted the only record he would take with him to live in an abandoned squat. I never got around to buy any Meat Puppets release back in the days and I’ve noticed that it’s not so easy for me to get into old HC or Punk which hasn’t accompanied me along the past […]



Now this is quite a surprise! A tribute to the the founding member and original master mind of PINK FLOYD, Syd Barrett who died 2 years ago. I could start telling you how much I always loved early PINK FLOYD and how I fell onto my knees in front of Syd Barretts musical genius, but […]

PAUL CHAIN- Mirror 7″ (Flight Nineteen Records, Switzerland, 1990)


This is the third post involving Italy’s very own PAUL CHAIN and it won’t be the last! You’ll find his former band DEATH SS here and his first solo release here. Couldn’t possibly add more to what I’ve already said about this man’s crazy, crazy and extensive work. Spanning from really heavy stuff over a […]
