SEX DWARF- Full av aska 7″EP (D-Takt & Rapunk Records / Konton Crasher, Sweden 2013)


Per Thunell is a force of nature! The ex-singer of PROTES BENGT and FILTHY CHRISTIANS (among others) newest comeback with fuzzed-out, fuckshitupistic, batshit crazy SEX DWARF. Never before has a band named after a Soft Cell song sounded so little like Soft Cell. SEX DWARF burst out with seven distorted, mid-tempo songs that remind of […]

GHOST- Secular Haze Live in Linköping, Sweden, December 2012


Papa Emeritus & his friars in their 2nd incarnation. Still – the most amazing band of our time! The rank sweetness, the maelstrom, the bottomless pit, that opens beneath your feet. May they take on the world. And end it.

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 […]

HEADCLEANERS- Disinfection 7″EP (Malign Massacre Records, Sweden, 1981)


One of the most original Hardcore bands and quite possibly Sweden’s best were HEADCLEANERS (or HUVUDTVÄTT). Don’t believe me? Here’s the split EP with PICNIC BOYS and here’s the final, monstrous EP. Every time I put this on, I simply can’t believe how a band could be so original, so great and so damn HARDCORE. […]

V/A VARNING!! FOR PUNK- 3 CD-Compilation (Distortion Records & Ägg Records, Sweden, 1994)


This is the first time I’m posting a CD release and I’m posting this because it was released on CD only and seems to be pretty tough to come by and widely unknown outside of Sweden (where I happen to live) It’s pretty much an anthology of Swedish Punk and Hardcore, as excessive in number […]

ABSURD- s/t 7″EP (Bullshit Rekordz, Sweden, 1982)


The missing link between Mongo Rock and D-Beat / Crust. Sweden’s ABSURD one and only EP, a masterpiece of its own! Yeah, Peter over at Killed by Death had this posted a while ago, but it’s the right time now for a repost of this hard to find pearl of swedish socialdemocratic preacher pop. Released […]

ARROGANTA AGITATORER- Arrogans 7″EP (Dishonor Records, Sweden, 1983)


Plain and simple: One of my most beloved swedish Hardcore 7″EPs. Lots of power – LOTS! Great fast riffing and and an excellent singer. And one english and one swedish side!! I used to have a demo tape of ARROGANTA AGITATORER too, but I couldn’t find it anymore. Lyrics are on the, cough cough, dumber […]

HEADCLEANERS- The Infection grows 7″EP (Xcentric Noise R.A.T.S., UK, 1983)


Some records are almost too good to be posted just like that. This is one of them. HEADCLEANERS last 7″ and the band’s high point. I doubt that there’s ever been such an effective use of double-vocals. A bit on the sloppy side, drumwise (weird – I used to think they were soooo tight!), but […]

ANTI-CIMEX- s/t 12″EP (Distraught / Skysaw Records, UK, 1986)


Who wouldn’t remember how controversially this slab was received. I got the advance tape only a few days after the final mixing of what would be the last ANTI-CIMEX record was done. The tape also contained a rough mix version and although I haven’t cared to dig it up since many many years, I remember […]

BOMBANFALL- s/t 7″EP (selfproduced, Sweden, 1987)


Excuse the double post, but I feel like a bit of Harshcore at the moment. Though the “core” is kinda dubious when it comes to BOMBANFALL. What a record. So wild, so uncompromising, so original! And one of my favourite singers ever. What a powerful fucking voice! What a barbaric EP! If the second song […]
