JETZT! - Acht Stunden Sind Kein Tag 7'' 1984

With Jetzt! we have another fuckin' rare 7Inch which is not really a punk record but these two wave goodies are not bad and I don't know where I got the mail. Anyway, usually first a tape is recorded and then comes the record (if some ass is pitying) but this four piece combo did it the other way. Released by Fast Weltweit/Hit-&-Run Records is this their only piece of wax and the lyrics are query and direct, musically a melodic mix of Schrammelsound, almost a light hippie touch I would say. In 1987 they push two tapes afterwards and then they disappeared. In between they contribute three songs on the Fast Weltweit Präsentiert compilation from 1986 (taugt der was?). Na leiht den Herren eure Ohren und heute Abend ist Fußball.

GRUPO PARLAMENTAR - Na Minha Terra 7'' 1982

Oh folks I'm k.o., nose close, head is booming and my taste is stunned, I'm total im Arsch. And what really piss me off is lying all day in bed and getting well, GRRRRR.... Well, at least I can present you a sensational record of a Portuguese band, their only one which came out via Rádio Triunfo. Two great songs between punk and powerpop with organ and pretty rockin'. About the band I have no info and from Portugal came not much stuff (correct me) but what I know is damn brettig, a must have!

PEGGIO PUNX - Cattivi Maestri 1989

Kick the sickness away with the Peggio Punx, a hardcore punk group from Alessandria (a small city in the north of Italy) & they were active from 1982-1989. Named as "Peggio Punk" and quick become "Peggio Punx" and the band was notable for the often experimental music (in the first distorted guitar album "type mandolin, until the very last pieces away from the canons punk - hardcore), and for working hard and reflective lyrics, words openly sympathetic to the current self far-left 'workers autonomy' that make them one of the most politically punk decided and deployed the entire Italian scene. In the early eighties very popular in the Italian scene, active incident to the social self "Subbuglio" of Alessandria and participating in numerous concerts, alongside bands like Wretched, CCM, Raw Power, etc., around the occupied social centers peninsula. Their self-produced discs are in the full spirit of DIY punk admittedly more "busy". It was recently reprinted a collection containing their discography, and also thanks to this reissue even worse now Punx are one of punk/hardcore Italian most popular ever.

THE SYSTEM - Thought Control 1997

Since I do a boat trip on the weekend and now I'm sick. Since yesterday plague me sore throat and it's damn unpleasant. Hope it goes quickly away. Last Friday I ripped this brilliant record by the System and today I come to post this and the advantage here is that a short bandbio is print on the backcover so here it is: The System formed in the summer of 1980 having messed around in various other bands since 1978. In 1981 they met a band called Flux Of Pink Indians, who helped them make their first single - the Warfare EP. This was very successful and contained their anthem - the Dogs Of War. By mid 1981 they were touring with Flux Of Pink Indians and the legendary Crass. They followed up with their second single - The System Is Murder. By this time they were being recognized all over the UK, Europe and the USA. Soon the album would follow and this record, however, never saw the light of day until 1997, through the help of Profane Existance and Skuld Records. Sorry it is a bit late but politics never change. And its as relevant today as it would have been then. Thirteen very good pieces, two of them live, chic presentation and recommended.

KAI MARTIN & STICK! - Biomusik 1980

Gothenburg band Kai Martin & Stick! or just Stick! which was originally called, was one of the early punk's most persistent and hard underrated band. But they quickly developed into a direction that made it into punk and conservative circles criticized the band hard. They we not called one of the right bands, synth bands and other patronizing, but the fact remains, punk was not a homogeneous musical style but accounted for musical freedom, which Kai Martin and Stick seized upon. The debut single, "Binder Min Tid" was released in 1979, the year after came the LP "Biomusik". This was followed by the critically acclaimed "Röd Plåt" LP in 1982 plus the 7'' "Man Ska Vara Som Ett Vilddjur I År" (You Should Be Like A Beast), who also restored some of the band's punk stamp, the group participated in both radio and television and in 1984 the band played at the Roskilde Festival and recordings of what was to become the group's last album, "Upptåndelsen" which is released the following year, 1985. Kai Martin & Stick! did their last show, which incidentally was recorded off the radio, on the Castle Forest Theatre 10. August 1985. At the gala Swedish Punk 25 years shook however, Kai and Gomer, along with Punk City Rockers, the dust out with "Beast" and "I Do Not Dance." With this cuts the band proved also that their detractors were wrong, Kai Martin & Stick! are definitely at home in punk!

C.O.M.A. - Clinik Organik Muzak Anatomik 1979

This is another very interesting record and a veteran of cold-wave/weird synth punk music by this French trio Philip Ross, Philipp Huart and Patrick Blain, with their only album released on FlamingoEnergetic and very atmospheric electropunk stuff, proto punk ethic is added industiels of synths, electronics thrown carelessly and chaotic manner and voice that aim to convey rage and alienation. C.O.M.A. create a fresh gloomy sound and move in the fairway of bands like Kraftwerk, only harder and more provocative. 2013 Danger Records has been pressed a re-release (listen). Members went on to form Charles De Goal and Danse Macabre in the 80s. Great songs! And now quickly back into my warm bed.

Some time has elapsed since the last Metal post and now a real highlight from Germany. This is one of the records which got lousy reviews in many metal magazines so for me an interesting record. This is the debut album by Necronomicon, a German thrash metal band founded in 1983 and two years later they recorded a demo called Total Rejection and in their early days they made punkrock in the vein of GBH or Discharge, hard, fast & loud but then soon they change more into metal. In 1985, the quartet signed their first record contract at GAMA Records. The band released their debut album "Necronomicon", still dressed in punk outfits on the cover. With a mixture of hard thrash with strong punkrock influences, they gained notoriety in the underground scene. To this day the band has produced eight albums, the second I had but still did not approach the strong debut, so I've just sold it. What I here like are the chainsaw guitars, the devilish rough voice (today I find it quite funny) and the powerful sound which drives consistently through the eight songs. Don't have to hide behind the American trashers, a solid German metal Platte.

HASSISEN KONE - Täältä Tullaan Venäjä 1980

Hassisen Kone (Temptation) was a Finnish punk rock band from Joensuu which was founded at the end of 1979. The group started with a new wave of punk, but began to develop towards the end of a progressive direction. All three of the actual albums are classics of Finnish rock. Motion religious leader became angry with the band's name, and the band changed their name for a short time into 'Kassinen Machine". The band won a contest held in Oulu and shortly they released their debut 7'' on Poko Records. They recorded three highly successful albums before disbanding in 1982. The singer/songwriter Ismo Alanko has led several bands since then and continues to be an influential name in Finnish rock music. Hassisen Kone has played several nostalgic reunion concerts after they disbanded. In 2000, they reunited for a concert on midsummer at the Joensuu Laulurinne. The concert was filmed and released as a DVD titled Twenty Vuotta Myöhemmin (Twenty Years Later). Check this awesome band out.
