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

06-Jan-13

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 […]

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 […]

THE NORMALS- Almost ready, b/w Hardcore 7″ (Electric Eye Records, USA, 1978)

07-Apr-11

Damn, this short break sure took a lot longer than planned … When recently, I was privately DJ’ying in Rome (you can hire me!), I realized that I haven’t had this absolutely fabulous single featured on the blog and I felt very, very ashamed. THE NORMALS were New Orleans’ best Punk band and I’m pretty […]

BUZZCOCKS- Orgasm Addict 7″ (UAR, UK, 1977)

08-Feb-10

Following Martin’s example, I too simply post a well known debut by a world famous band (well, lets say it was the 2nd debut by the BUZZCOCKS, after the “Spiral Scratch” 7″). The BUZZCOCKS were, as you know, the inventors of the d-beat. Apart from that, they were one of my fave first generation Punk […]

GASTUNK- To Fans 7″EP (Sex69, Japan, 1986)

09-Oct-09

What a bizarre blend of Metal, Hardrock (KISS!), Folk and Punk. GASTUNK from Japan enjoy some sort of cult status and I can really understand why. There simply ain’t no band with a similar sound around. The “Deadsong” Lp was a bit too much for me, but this collectible 7″ is great. And the packaging […]

SACK-0′-WOES- The Paranoids are coming 12″EP (Looprekords, Holland, 2009)

18-Jul-09

Finally a new promo record that’s worth reviewing (and finally a new post, so you might say)! It’s the first 12″er, after a few 7″ers, by Holland’s SACK-‘O-WOES. While I’m not particularly fond of Retro Punk and this indeed sounds like modern Dirty Punk ‘n’ Roll, I must say that at least to me, it […]

(IMPATIENT) YOUTH- s/t 7″EP (selfproduced, USA, 1980)

14-Mar-09

I just come from watching Gus van Sant’s “Milk”. What a melodramatic, hollywoodesque soap opera was that?! Sean Penn’s acting was almost as funny as Adolf Hitler who played Bruno Ganz. If you want to see a great movie about Milk and the riots (check the first Dead Kennedys album cover!), do yourself a favor […]

SEWER TROUT- For President 7″ (One Shot Flop Records, USA, 1988)

05-Nov-08

Shit, SEWER TROUT didn’t make it into the White House. The only thing that worries me about last night’s election in the U.S. is that Obama will most likely never be able to come up to the expectations everybody seems to be having in his upcoming presidency. Maybe that’s the deeper reason for me to […]

MAD PARADE- Right is right 7″ (Toxic Shock Records, USA, 1986)

01-Nov-08

One of the Southern Californian bands who never got the recognition they deserved. MAD PARADE were formed in the early 80s and released a catchy LP in 1984. This 7″ I like much better cuz this kind of easy going Pop Punk is getting boring after a while. If you’re in the same mood like […]

MAIDS- Back to Bataan 7″EP (Anemic Records, USA, 1979)

27-Aug-08

The MAIDS one and only release has been posted here and there before, but that just can’t hold me back from running my own feature. The two songs on this 7″ were first introduced to me by a fellow tape and record trader from Germany, very late, just before the internet changed everything. I had […]
