E.N.T. & K.L.F.- 3 a.m. eternal 7″ (selfproduced, UK, 1992)


When in 1991, the british acid house act KLF decided it was time to retreat from the nasty music business (with the millions they had made), they decided to leave it with a bang. The group was announced to play the Brit Awards ceremony (a tasteless annual meeting of the music industry) and had in […]

BITCHES SIN- Always ready (for Love) 7″ (Neat Records, UK, 1981)


A perfect summer record and one classic NWOBHM scorcher! BITCHES SIN rode in on the first wave and apart from this 7″ reached their peak with the song “Strangers on the Shore” (on the mandatory “Heavy Metal Heroes” sampler). The fresh air was lost a bit on the subsequent releases, I think, but nevertheless these […]

NYX NEGATIV- Punk Cassette (selfproduced, Sweden, 1983)


I know that KBD-Peter will hate this and he probably won’t have anything nice to say about the band. He may be right with whatever he has to say about the Swedish Hardcore Punk scene of the 80s (definitely the scene with funniest hairdos!), but still this tape is lovely. Such great power and still […]

Mystery Band IV: THE ENERJETICS- [almost] 1983 Demo (New Jersey, USA)


ENERJETICS from New Jersey – Finally a new Mystery Band! It’s always a great pleasure when a demo of a to me unknown Hardcore band from the golden era surfaces. And even greater the pleasure is, when the demo is of such quality. Please go over to Dave’s excellent Rocket Science blog and listen to […]

V/A REAGAN REGIME REVIEW- Compilation 7″EP (Selfless Records, USA, 1992)


What else could I come up with after the Touch and Go – Book review? This comp. came together with an issue of Touch & Go. Unfortunately I can’t find the zine no more, but I believe it was an anthology of sorts. However, all tracks on this sampler may be as good or as […]

TOUCH AND GO. The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine ’79-’83. (Bazillion Points Books, USA, 2010)


“Touch and Go” is not only the name of one of the most exciting and important underground labels (The Fix, Necros, Negative Approach etc.). “Touch and Go” was also a legendary Hardcore Punk fanzine that lasted from 1979 to 1983. In fact, the fanzine came first, founded by the provocative and anus tooling mastermind Tesco […]

LEGION OF DEATH- s/t LP (L.O.D. Records, USA, 1987)


I remember seeing the band logo in fanzines back in the mid 80s, but I don’t think I ever had any of the several demos LEGION OF DEATH released between 1985 and 1989 nor this LP. But when I stumbled upon it at Fribi’s excellent “Outsider Shop” in Olten, Switzerland, I thought, what the hell […]
