DIE KLOPFERBANDE - Bessere Zeiten 1982

Yeah, one more goodie now with the third album from the Klopferbande and it's a successful continuation. On this album we have eleven brilliant wave/punk songs with intrusive-serious German lyrics. And it's great as before and I will let you know what I'm talking about, of course I'm mean their first album Barbarei and the songs are much more mature, powerful and a real boost to the first album and the cover is even fantastic. So give yourself the full Klopferbande blast. In 1990 they released their 4th record and 2015 the current one. Great record, great music!

ANTI-HEROS - That's Right! 1987

Another classic album for me is the debut by the Anti-Heros, an American Oi!/Punk band which were formed 1984 in Atlanta/Georgia. They took a hiatus from 1989–1993, but continued to record and play concerts through the early 2000s. Anti-Heros are one of the first and most popular American Oi! bands. The original line-up consisted of Mark Noah (vocals), Mike Jones (bass), Phil Solomon (drums) and Joe Winograd (guitar). The band released two records on Link Records in the late 80s, 'That's Right!' in 1987 and 'Don't Tread On Me' one year later. Despite the band's vocal admonishment of racism, their association with such ideals has long been a topic of contention among fans. Their theme song, "Anti-Hero," featured as a standard in their live set. The Anti-Heros stance on racist Skinhead participation in the Atlanta Skinhead scene circa 1987 is addressed in the song "Some Fun" with Mark Noah's lyrics "Now the Nazis are coming around, let's run them out of town!" Their last studio album 'Underneath The Underground' was released 1999.

CITY-X - s/t LP 1985

Well, if you a little bit familiar with danish punk then you should know City-X, listen to the Bloodstains Across Denmark and the 2004 Elektriske Svin compilations. After three decent 7Inches Irmgardz Records released in 1985 the bands only full length and they are with this nine songs far far away from their punk roots. I honestly can't understand why and the change brought nothing special out. I would not even call it New Wave, sounds more like lame pop shit. A real disappointment in my opinion, why then post you will ask? Sometimes such music is okay and it's a rare record and maybe a few like this but I must say, it ripples like a dripping faucet. Anyway, City-X were a very good punk band and when we talk of early danish punk they are an important part of it. Tune 4 and 7 prove this a little and plus points for the pretty artwork.

DER DURSTIGE MANN - Himmel & Hölle 1987

Majestic amateurish punk rock from Frankfurt Der Durstige Mann, everyone knows, everyone loves them. Who does not know a single tone becomes yet 100% a fan. ''Himmel & Hölle'' is by far the oddest album they have produced. It includes a Beatles cover 'Little Child' and has many beautiful short songs and the sound quality had prosaicness charakter. Side 2 consists almost entirely longer pieces. For "Monotons Traum" Mark was recorded thirteen minutes at snoring and the result was backed by wild tone-impressions... ("We needed something to make up for the full plate!") Well, is this avantgarde? The record is pressed in flashy colored vinyl. All together, the publications of Eric († 20.01.2016) and syndicate members are great fun an amount.

V/A - Life Is A Joke 1984

A collection of Punkrock, Hardcore and high energy noise from around this planet. Yeah, exactly and this is the first part of this mini serie, a total of three compilations exist, shot from the Hamburg label Weird System in the 80s into the orbit. I remember at that time I was interested in the publications of the label and bought a lot of records, together with AGR the most important in Germany for essential punkrock. While AGR put its focus on German bands gave the Hamburger international bands the chance to send their demos to them and connections were established, lots of plenty stuff roll in and so they created some damn cool records with awesome songs/bands which are, in my opinion, nowadays belong to the best ever. Life Is A Joke is full with rare tracks, partly nowhere else published, Volume 2 was released as a limited double LP, all records numbered and the first presses come in colorful vinyl, always in an elaborate artwork, made in Germany! 

1.Red Threat - FANG
3.Miseria E Fome - INOCENTES

V/A - Kick Your Mama's Ass 1996

OK Leute, now we meet a fantastic bootleg which is peppered with eighteen raw and furious punk nuggets from around the world and a label called Reverendo Moon Records from Italy, certainly another synonym for an KBD maniac, pressed this compilation in an edition of 500 copies to the surface. Excellent mix of songs which mark the punk sound between 1977-1981 and you can say what you want: The music was at that time simply better and I wish I had been part of it. Well, no matter. All infos written on the back cover, superb record, let the drugs flow into your brain!

V/A - Vancouver Independence 1980

A short trip across the Atlantic to Canada with stop in Vancouver. There pressed the label Friends Records this nice compilation with eight bands, who had their first concerts and possibly 7Inches at the start, and said: "Hey! It's time to make a record and wake wp the messed up society with new impulses, away from stupidity with fresh sounds." And the result is a varied piece of punk/ska/synth rock. I'm always amazed why such good bands with really great songs shortly afterwards disappear from the scene, also here, lack of money, different kind of interests or other personal differences, who knows. Perhaps it is well so, it makes such rare slabs interesting and in today's mp3 era accessible for everyone. So I guess you will like this stuff + enjoy the early 80s sound.

1.Behind The Smile - SUBHUMANS
2.Don't Like It At All - METROS
3.The Conquest Of Daytime - SI MONKEY
4.No Excuse - NO EXIT
5.Nuremberg '34 - DROOGS
6.Spy Vs Spy - THE B-SIDES
7.What Would You Say? - M.E.C.
8.Underground Radio Stars - THE B-SIDES
10.Nothing New - NO EXIT
11.Get Rigid - SI MONKEY
12.Out Of Line - SUBHUMANS
13.In With The Crowd - METROS
14.Midnight Cowboy - SINGING COWBOYS

V/A - Tollschock 2 1991

Today was sunny so we need the second compilation on Pedder's label Skan Produktions with more bands which partially appear for the first time on vinyl and all fifteen songs are exclusive and unpublished (status 1991 of course). The creative individuality of each band speaks for itself and, with all its diversity, fits into a provocative and homogenous whole. Pogo Ist Trumpf my Friends! A perfect continuation to Tollschock 1 in my opinion. All scans included. 

1.Groschengrab - DAILY TERROR 
2.Ausgelacht - TRINK ZEHN 
3.Scheißegal - HANNEN ALKS 
4.Am Gipfel Der Macht - DÖDELHAIE

7.Der Präsident - FORESTER 
9.Phantasiegedanken - BECK'S PISTOLS 
10.No More - TRINK ZEHN
