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 […]

SCREAMING SNEAKERS- Marching Orders 12″ EP (Screaming Sneakers Records, USA, 1982)


I can’t say how I excited I was when not too long ago I heard the song “Violent Days” by a – to me – totally unknown band for the first time. SCREAMING SNEAKERS – it would sound like some sort of a comedy punk band, but as it soon showed, they were not. Hailing […]

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.

KLEENEX- Hedi’s Head Video Clip


«Hedi is oh-so sad!»

MOTÖRHEAD- Live August 1980 [yes, broken soundcard still has not been replaced]


Awesome live (obviously not overdubbed) video from 1980. This was available on VHS back when I didn’t sport a grey beard as I do now. Unfortunately, my soundcard is damaged, which keeps me from ripping new music for the blog. I hope to get a new one real soon. Be back soon, I promise.

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


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 […]

SEWER ZOMBIES- Conquer the Galaxy LP (Subversive Records, USA, 1987)


I’ve been meaning to post the 2nd SEWER ZOMBIES for a while now (I’ve had two songs off the first one up here once). Bizarre. This is just bizarre. I really don’t know what to say. If there were no Hardcore-context given, what would you make of this? I’m not even sure I like it. […]

FLIPPER- Sex Bomb, c/w Brainwash 7″ (Subterranean Records, USA, 1981)


Early FLIPPER: Pure musical cynicism, minimalistic, razor sharp and relentless. Hard drugs do not only destroy peoples lifes. The b-side will drive you insane, if you’re not already. The singer is struggling with words, attempting to explain something, then ends abruptly. Again and again, 12 times and it never stops, as it ends in a […]

HELLHAMMER- Satanic Rites Demo Tape (Prowling Death Records, Switzerland, 1983)


VENOM had set in motion some kind of movement that soon was bigger than its originators, but it took a few years before they were dethroned. In 1981, I had seen the «In League with Satan» Single on display at my local record shop. The cover was promising so much and when I bought the […]

ANGST- s/t 12″EP (Happy Squid Records, USA, 1983)


ANGST were formed in Colorado in 1978, moved to London in 1979 and relocated to San Francisco in 1980. In 1983 they released their debut, this selftitled 12″, which was followed by four albums, all on SST (also, in 1985 this EP was rereleased by SST). The first one, “Lite Life” and especially the 2nd […]
