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 […]

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 […]

VENOM- Witching Hour Video Clip


First saw this on swiss national TV in 1982, when “Black Metal” was released. This was quite something back then, raw, evilistic and clearly a sign for new wicked things to come down our way. Soundcard problems persisting. Things will get sorted soon, so stay tuned!

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.

NIKOTEENS- 1st 7″EP (selfproduced, Germany, 1981)


Formed in 1979, Germany’s NIKOTEENS released this 7″ on their own. The songs were originally intended to be included on the now legendary «Soundtracks zum Untergang» compilation album, but got rejected by label owner Karl Walterbach (who founded “Noise Rerords” out of the ashes of “Aggressive Rockproduktionen”, when Metal was the new thing and Punk […]

PILLSBURY HARDCORE- In a Straight Edge Limbo 7″EP (Fartblossom Enterprises, USA, 1985)


The first time that I heard (saw) PILLSYBURY HARDCORE was on Flipside Video Fanzine, Volume Six (or was it five?). I immediately fell in love with the band for the song “Hey Bob, what’s up?” alsone and forced about every band to play this with me. What was so exciting was the fact that songs […]

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 […]



This is how you represent 80s Hardcore and its bastard offspring in the 21st century without stepping into the retro trap. Cutting up the sound, playing around with the visuals – and creating something that seems “authentic” yet is a hybrid. The power of this video and its soundtrack is simply overwhelming. Very, very, very […]

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 […]
