PUSRAD- Smart Trams 7″ EP (Just4Fun, USA, 2012)

12-Feb-12

Perfection. Sort, sharp, to the point. Clever, full of energy, sounding like the best and yet like no one else. I’m sorry, but there’s nothing more that I could say. This yellow piece of plastic has so much energy, it makes me breathless. Thus the concept of “Smart Trams” is perfect: Short songs – and […]

NEGATIVE APPROACH- s/t 7″EP (Touch & Go Records, USA, 1982)

28-May-11

Day 4. (I’m not sure what Touch & Go’s actual policy on blogs using their music is [they used to be very restrictive], so it wouldn’t surprise me if the links had to be taken down quickly. As much as I would understand that, as much I hope that it’s clear that I’m doing what […]

D.Y.S.- Brotherhood Mini-LP (X-Claim Records, USA, 1983)

14-May-10

I couldn’t resist, so here’s the first 12er by the D.Y.S. (Department of Youth Services). Musically not as perfect, but in a way just as enjoyable as SSD (or maybe more so; totally depends on the mood I’m in) and lyrically from about the same caliber, only that D.Y.S. were a bit more outspokenly misogynistic. […]

SS DECONTROL- Get it away 12″EP (X-Claim Records, USA, 1983)

11-May-10

You cannot argue the overwhelming power of “Get it away”, the 2nd release by Boston’s notorious SOCIETY SYSTEM DECONTROL. Test it yourself: Turn up the volume to a considerable point, play these songs one after another and then take any other record and spin it next. If it’s not falling flat in comparison, it’s gotta […]

CRIPPLED YOUTH- Join the Fight 7″EP (New Beginning Records, USA, 1986)

02-Jul-09

After the youngest band in Hardcore, here’s another band full of youngsters. It’d be so easy to slag off CRIPPLED YOUTH mercilessly – not only for the fact that after this they became BOLD, one of these countless post-Hardcore bands that give me the creeps. Just check out the lyrics we’ve got here like the […]

V/A NUKE YOUR DINK – NEVADA HARDCORE SAMPLER E.P.- 7″ Comp (Positive Force, USA, 1984)

27-Jan-09

I originally wanted the first BCT comp tape, «First Strike», to be the next post on this blog. I had already begun editing the rip, when I started googling some background info. Well, as it seems, the tape was re-released on CD a while ago on the excellent Enterruption label outta San Francisco. So here […]

UNITY- You are one 7″EP (Wishingwell Records, USA, 1986)

06-Dec-08

Haha, yeah, yeah, I know – what is this doing here? Cross my heart – I love this record! UNITY managed to achieve what all these posi bands tried in vain: This is one of the records that really, really make me wanna go out and be nice to everybody. So full of joy, the […]
