ANGEL WITCH- Loser 7″EP (Bronze Records, UK, 1981)


The band against which the whole music business had conspired: ANGEL WITCH never got the recognition they deserved. Maybe it was Bronze Records’ poor distribution, as the s/t LP was a collector’s item in the early 80s already, at least outside of the UK. Yet the album is perfect in every aspect and delivers nothing […]



You may have seen the donation-button on top of the left side column: Please make use of it, if you want to keep Goodbadmusic going on for another year. For those new to the site: This blog runs exclusively on your donations. Although I could make a quick buck with google-ads etc., I decided to […]

OLHO SECO- Botas, Fuzis, Capacetes 7″EP (Punk Rock Discos, Brazil, 1983)


There is something about this debut 7″ by OLHO SECO that is irresistible. First off all, it’s “Nada”, which is one of the worldwide super hardcore punk hits, immortalized and first brought to most via MRR’s “Welcome to 1984” sampler. Its simplicity and effectivity is astounding, almost scary. On the flipside, the other two songs […]

CHAINSAW- Police and Politicians, c/w Hole in the Road 7″ (Square Records, UK, 1981)


There were two bands of the NWOBHM with the CHAINSAW moniker, one from Yorkshire (who released two 7″s, with a fairly melodic style) and this one here, who also released a so-so 12″EP and a five song demo tape. “Police and Politicians” and “Hole in the Ground” are interesting rock numbers. Not so much Metal […]

TWISTED SISTER- «Under the Blade» Live at the Reading Festival 1982


I would have never thought I’d see this footage! TWISTED SISTER were at their hight in 1982, when “Under the Blade” was released. I had won it in a contest in 1982 in the german music magazine “Bravo” and couldn’t believe my ears. Dee Snyder would have been the only replacement for Bon Scott. What […]

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 […]

NEGATIVE APPROACH- s/t 7″EP (Touch & Go Records, USA, 1982)


Day 4. (I’m not sure what Touch & Go’s actual policy on blogs using their music is [they used to be very restrictive], so it wouldn’t surprise me if the links had to be taken down quickly. As much as I would understand that, as much I hope that it’s clear that I’m doing what […]

RIOT- Outlaw, c/w Rock city (live) 7″ (Elektra, USA, 1981)


Listen, I know what you’re thinking. “What the hell is this?! This 7″ never had this sleeve!” And you’re totally right being surprised. So was I when I found me a promotional copy of RIOT‘s “Fire down under” LP, bearing a sticker which said that this would include the bonus 7″. I can only speak […]

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


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 […]
