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 […]

CRUCIFIX- s/t 12″EP (Universal Records, USA, 1981)


As of late, and don’t ask me why, I have learned to appreciate the debut by CRUCIFIX. It is sloppy, the guitar’s out of tune, the songs sound like the band was sedated, they’re just too slow. But still, this has got a lot of charme, especially when you think what a scorcher the following […]

Squirt, The: s/t Cassette Album (selfproduced, Switzerland, 1983)


First off – My goodbadmusic-sabbatical is over! I’ve been quite busy with some private stuff which has basically occupied me full time throughout the year. So let’s kick off with two things here. An immensely great demo tape you haven’t heard before and with the annual donation round, which is open now (see the Donate-Button […]

CHEETAH CROME MOTHERFUCKERS- s/t 7″EP (Cessofonya Records, Italy, 1981)


Italy’s GERMS – only that CCM‘s first vinyl offering DESTROYS right from scratch (while the first Germs 7″ was charming, but honestly, unlistenable). I’m sparing you from my usual blabber this time. Tune in, drop out, fuck off. PS: The tracklist of this EP is kinda sketchy. The label lists different and not all songs, […]

ANTISECT: Out from the Void 7″ (Endangered Musik, UK, 1986)


Maybe this is and always has been more of a record that I wanted to like, than one that I really did like. I don’t recall the review I wrote for my fanzine, when “Out from the Void” came out, but I tend to believe that it wasn’t bad at all. Yet, in the years […]

F- You are an E.P. 12″EP (Intendo Distorto Records, USA, 1984)


Soundcard issues have been fixed! One of Florida’s greatest – and still surprisingly obscured 12″ by the notorious F. The six songs on this ep rip hard! Great voice, great guitar, competent rhythm section and songs that just flow over with energy and aggression, although they are not played overly fast. Bands like Hypnotics or […]

STETZ- Songs of Experience LP (Russo Syndicate Records, USA, 1986)


How much I loved this LP when it came out – and I still know every song by heart, even though I don’t spin it as often as I used to! Too bad STETZ never released anything else beside this, apart from songs on three LP comps («Hardcore Takes Over», «One big Crowd» and “New […]

HERESY- Split LP with Reevsy singing (Toy’s Factory, Japan, 1990)


Not too long before HERESY embarked for their first Euro tour in 1986 (together with Concrete Sox – more here), they recorded 6 songs with their original guitarist & singer Reevsy (who also can be heard on the «Never Healed»Flexi). As you know, Reevsy was replaced by John on vocal duty on the tour and […]

RHYTHM PIGS- An american Activitiy 7″EP (Unclean Records, USA, 1984)


A stunner, a real stunner of an EP. 6 short songs, each one full with great melodies and rhythm, a lot of RHYTHM. Playing this now, 28 years after its release, makes you wonder why there were so few bands with such a fresh sound and lyrics that may cover the usual subjects of the […]

FRONT LINE- Basic Training 7″EP (Beach Impediment Records, USA, 2012)


You may have heard FRONT LINE on the glorious 2nd installment of MASTER TAPE (find the quintessential volume one here) – and you know that this band overshadowed the other (very good) bands in terms ofspeed and punch by miles. Finally, the complete 1982 10-song demo (from which the comp tracks were taken) has been […]
