DESTROY - Sanoja 7'' 1980

This fuckin' two-sided killer is an absolute must have and if you own a copy then keep it firmly because it is as good as a felicitous relationship. A private release and 200 copies exist. Destroy were Mikko (vocals + guitar), Jukka (guitar), Aki (bass) and Timo (drums) and they are probably from Helsinki because the two songs were recorded there and they master their instruments. The a-side is a brilliant mid-tempo punky one with a slice of rockin' touch, a superb hammer (one of the best guitar solos I've ever heard) and the flip is also great, starts slowly and melanchoic and ends up in a rough fast tempo, oh bloody hell, this is pure awesome music and that's why I love my life. If you've heard something like that you can't be anything else. Sanoja is rightly chosen for the Bloodstains Across The World #2 compilation with other splendid lost of my best posts here. Enjoy the record, the weekend and let's have a drink!


A.K.P. - Der Einsame EP 1984

Now a request: the lone record by A.K.P. on Hyrdhina ReCOREds with five distorted trashy punk numbers. I would say nothing special but not bad at all, I mean for € 3, - I would take the 7Inch with me but I think it would be an archive piece. Ergo I would not buy it because since I know it. Holy Shit, that sounds schizophrenic. Well, I guess this is due to yesterday's Turbostaat concert which was extreme good, a complete different quality. I think, I'm talking too much senseless shit now, I'm confused at this shitty december 10th. At least one person is happy today with this post.

ROOM 41 - Brain Shake 7'' 1997

Holy Shit, I think I'm gonna became a heartattack, hahaha. This band will blow your brains. How trashy, raw, wild & fast can they go? Room 41 really rule and kick ass. Catchy and dirty garage punk rock - just the way punk might should be. You make sure to get something by this band. Bought this 7'' long time ago in a local record store for € 4,- and it's damn cool. I have no idea if they have more but if there I will be able to get it. This one's the unoffical German release, you don't regret anything.

BADBOLL - Badboll Lever! EP 1981

Was the first release, Valen EP a killer gritty guitar sound one, leave Stockholm's Badboll with their second & final release, unfortunately, the tempo, the rudeness and the dirty sound behind them and have recorded here four poppy punk songs, and why?, that's a good questions. Maybe they wanted to be heard on the radio or there were too many bands who played '77 punk style (and there were a lots of them in the early days in Sweden) or for other reasons. It probably remains their secret. Well anyway, the songs are not bad here, a clean production (using keys), melodic & happy songs and they exude a "the world is beautiful & good" feeling and I like this pretty cool cover, some people today want over € 100,- for this piece of vinyl, incredible. A solid catchy powerpop record and a rare one and absolutly right on this place. I put the first 7Inch within.

DA! - Dark Rooms 7'' 1981

This record was a long time on the Wanted-List and was posted in my former wildly loved wilddevilrules blog and since I currently convert some singles I stay with the DA! record. DA! were a Chicago-based post-punk band of the early 1980s and exist 1978-1982, they released two 7Inches on Autumn Records, formed by 17-year-old singer/bassist Lorna Donley in 1977, along with guitarist/keyboardist Evelyn Marquis and drummer Dawn Fisher. This lineup performed only once, and guitarist Gaylene Goudreau (who had previously played with all-girl punk band Lois Layne) was added in late 1979. Their music is a bit gloomy, but at a decent pace, and the female voice fits pretty good. Last one today, I'm tired of drinkin' much beer, join me tomorrow!

CITY KENT - Cancer 7'' 1979

Next 7Inch nugget by a band from Lund, in the east of Sweden, with their first and best release on Heartwork Records. Two awesome smashers just found here. Their music have all the great ingredients what a '77 punkrock style record needs, great cosmic guitar playing with a drivin' energy, swedish sung and everything is just right for a definitive classic. They released two years later a second EP but this is not worth mentioning. Completely different sound and it goes more into a wavish rock sound, terrible! What has driven the boys to record such a strange shit remains till now a mystery. No wonder 'Cancer' was chosen for Back To Front # 4. - Anyway, this here is a smasher and I promise, you like this little piece of Lund Punk.

STERKE SVAKHETER - Vi Er Som Andre Bare Litt Annerledes, Eller...Er De Andre Som Oss Bare Litt Annerledes EP 1982

Hello and welcome to more rare stuff from the glorious early punkrock days. - Another short-lived band were Sterke Svakheter from Jessheim/Norway and they existed from 1981- 1982, active in the early 80's with among others Espen Dahle on vocals and Kjetil Andersen on bass - both known from the band Slips. Their music has been described as 'dark punk rock'. They only released one EP on Den Onde Sirkel during their days and as well as several tunes on various compilation tapes including on the grandios Killed By Death #41 compilation. As mentioned so many other singles here is this certainly appeared in small copies and therefore a sought-after collector rarity. The four songs have a leisurely pace and with just twelve minutes of playing time quite long for an EP.

G.B.H - No Survivors EP '82 + Give Me Fire 7'' '82 + Catch 23 7'' 1983

Punk Rocking For Over 30 Years, that's what we have here now. - Charged G.B.H are an English Street punk band, formed in 1978 by vocalist Colin Abrahall, guitarist Colin "Jock" Blyth, bassist Sean McCarthy & Drummer Andy "Wilf" Williams. G.B.H were early pioneers of English street punk, often nicknamed "UK82", along with Discharge, Broken Bones, The Exploited etc.. They have gone on to influence several punk rock musicians. The name G.B.H was inspired by then-bassist Sean McCarthy's trial for grievous bodily harm. Charged GBH embarked on several English and mainland US tours during the early 1980s, including several gigs at the 100 Club. 1981 saw G.B.H's first record Leather, Bristles, Studs & Acne and one year later the first full length album, City Baby Attacked By Rats. Lyrically, the band dealt with criticism of British and European culture, violence, morbidity (especially in reference to the song "Passenger On The Menu", which describes in graphic detail the experiences of the passengers on the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571), atheism, nihilism and humour. Musically, the band is loud and fast, with few songs exceeding three minutes. In 1984 the band changed their name to G.B.H (Grievous Bodily Harm). Unlike some early punk bands that evolved towards other styles, G.B.H have stayed fairly faithful to their original UK82 sound in subsequent releases. However, the band have experimented to some degree with a more speed metal-inflected sound and at this point i'm losing my interest. So here we have three singles from the early days and everyone is a pretty UK Punkrock Killer.
