R.I.P. Seth Putnam (1968 – 2011)


I have no music of Seth I could post here and while I’m yet trying to pay some sort of tribute to the man, I will write more about myself than him, but that’s how it goes sometimes and I can’t change it. (This photo is from Seth’s facebook) In person, I met Seth only […]

PENTAGRAM- Livin’ in a Ram’s Head, b/w When the Screams come 7″ (High Voltage Records, USA, 1979)


PENTAGRAM sure have a one of a kind history, one that is not so unlike from that of Pagan Altar, for instance. Old bands that never got out of their regional context in their heyday and only started to get international recognition during the 90s and 00s. But other than Pagan Altar (the only altar […]

Podcast: SPIN RADIO UNDERGROUND: FEAR Live & Cover Versions Special (Spin / Enigma, USA, 1985)


In the mid 80s, SPIN MAGAZINE produced a series of radio promo double lps, every one of them featuring one main artist with a live concert, plus a full radio broadcast.

Over the past years, I’ve been trying my best to give these mostly hard to find records some attention. When recently I got in touch with Rolf Brunner, I first didn’t know what […]

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 […]

STRATEGY- Technical Overflow, b/w Astral Planes (Ebony, UK, 1982)


The recent debate in our beloved comments section about “the best NWOBHM album” keeps on setting the direction. To tell the truth, I was pulling your legs a bit – how could a man of taste (I’m sorry to say, but I’ve given up hope to ever meet a woman who’d be equally into music […]
