BURNT CROSS - too many graves - 7" - £3
Opiate Records nr. 13 is out now. Their 6th ep, co-released with Tadpole Records and 4 other labels across the globe. Powerful, angry, tuneful and sincere anarcho peacepunk. Punk as a vehicle for outrage, not "just entertainment packaged tastefully". This time around there's also some seriously killer guest vocals by Maureen Farrell (Leopard Leg, Polly Shang Kuan Band, Jettatura) and a Rudimentary Peni cover to wrap it all up nicely. Fucking inspiring.

SGT. SLAUGHTER - they call me... - 7" - £3
"Irreverent and noisy hardcore punk from Massachusetts. There's an obvious Jerry's Kids influence here along with other early Boston bands. No traces of fastcore, powerviolence, or anything else here. Just hardcore punk with a clean, ballsy guitar sound and perfectly fitting production. Ltd. to 400 copies."

SELVHENTER - to fingre i kudden... - 7" - £3
"I'm at the point now that i see a band is from denmark, i just assume they're fantastic... and once again im proven right! Whereas some of their contemporarieshave drawn influence from late -'70/early-80s american punk, SELVHENTER pays homage to all the obscure and fantastic early 80s scandinavian bands, like the ones you would hear on the northern europe editions of "Bloodstains across DK" or "Killed by death". A nice mixture of punk and east thrash makes for a killer sound. Highly recommended - MRR "

MAAKUNTARADIO - lp - £7.50
...another winner from Finland. Not '82 inspired raw hardcore punk this time, but killer late 70s/early 80s Finnish punk in the vein of RATSIA, early EPPU NORMAALI and 013! This wouldn't have been out of place on the Bloodstains Across Finland compilation, not just due the way it sounds but also because it is that bloody good. Members of KAKKA HATTA 77 should you need anymore convincing...!!! -

SACRED SHOCK - lp - £8
After a few killer (split) 7"s, it's fair to say this, Sacred Shock's first full length, was one of the most anticipated records of the year for many. Featuring members of HATRED SURGE, IRON AGE & ARMY OF JESUS, these Austin based punks don't disappoint and deliver 11 more hook ridden tracks of blazing hardcore punk destruction. -

MEATLOCKER – lp – RSR Records - £7.50
Debut from this UK/Australian hardcore powerhouse. Members of Extortion and Lecky of Voorhees on vocal duties.

RUNNING FOR COVER – dark well - lp – 625 thrash / art of the underground - £7.20
...if you’ve been little impressed by the offerings of those that claim to worship at the altars of the like of Siege, No Comment and Neanderthal these last few years, you’ll be happy to hear: poserviolence this fucking ain’t! This is the fierce, fast, brutal, nasty, bleak, dark shit you’ve been despairing for when being dissapointed once again by yet another bunch of “wacky” ex-sxe kids producing some weak thrash marketed as the 2nd coming of Infest and co.... Or as Alex nailed it in his review on Collectize Zine: “Running For Cover’s ‘Human Ruins’ 7” was an unexpected powerviolence gem and this long-overdue follow-up hits the exact same mark, a 20-track system purge of unwavering disgust and despair that doesn’t quite know who to turn the gun on first. Though the brunt of their attack consists of thick, gnarled, painfully heavy riffage and bitter, bellicose rants, strange melodic twitterings and wandering Eric Wood-inspired basslines writhe semi-heard beneath the relentless cudgel blows, forcing the listener to stay on a caffeine-tweaked state of alert rather than slip into the droop-lidded complacency engendered by so many of the tiresome fastcore blunderers following in their wake.”

VI GRUER OSS - Pønkpopulistisk Propaganda - LP - £7
After an ep and split 10", Norwegian powerhouse Vi Gruer Oss return with another whirlwind assault of full speed ahead, no holds barred, hardcore punk. 41 tracks of constant pummeling, manic, fast, frantic, clinging on for dear life, unadulterated rage- heavily influenced by MOB 47 and DISKONTO. The lp includes a multi-page booklet with artwork and explanations to every song. Numbered out of 522 copies.

BRATPACK - Hate The Neighbours - LP - £6.50
A great mix of throwback 80s US hardcore and fast aggressive melodic punk usually more at home in California than the cold rainy streets of Nijmegen. Elements of Circle Jerks, early Bad Religion, Adolescents, RKL, Angry Samoans, Career Suicide and Battalion Of Saints come at you in fast and catchy tunes with killer hooks and smart lyrics pointing out the hypocrisies and ignorance of the world around us. BRATPACK share their singer with the also rather excellent CITIZENS PATROL, so if you like the one, definitely also check out the other!

A great slab of wax of killer Japanese hardcore crust punk. While CONTRAST ATTITUDE pummel you into a clenched fist pumping frenzy with a raw distortion heavy assault of apocalyptic d beat noise thrash, tight drumming and super pissed off vocals - ACROSTIX run firmly in the footsteps of the mighty AMEBIX, proudly wearing their influences on sleeves littered with black & white patches. If names like AGE, FRAMTID and DISCLOSE or ZYGOTE and AMEBIX mean anything to you, at all, you mind want to snap this up before the rest of the kids finally wake up and get wise to this gem! /

DESTRUCKTIONS - complete destruckions - lp - £8 SOLD OUT- Anthology of this long gone cult band from Pori, Finland! This has all DESTRUCKTIONS studio recordings: Vox Populi -LP, their segments from the FINNISH SPUNK HARD BEAT and HARDCORE '83 compilations + unreleased demo tracks. Clearly a labour of love, this comes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with comprehensive liner notes by guitarist Poko. Guaranteed to rip your speakers to shreds!

KANSAN UUTISET - LP + 12" - £10
Originally released on Rock O Rama back in 1983, Hohnie records has now given the amazing "Beautiful Dreams" lp a much deserved reissue. My own copy of the lp has been played to shit, so I couldn't be more stoked, but the real treat is the fact the Hohnie version comes with a 12" with previously unreleased, ultra raging, demos and an "80s style fanzine". You need this. Raw 80s Finnish hardcore punk at it's absolute best.

V/A HARDCORE '83 - compilation lp - £8 - SOLD OUT
Uber fucking classic compilation lp that surely needs no further introduction. Propaganda Records originally released this in 1983 and if anyone needs a reminder of the fact Finland had one of the best scenes in the 80s, just look at the names featured: KANSAN UUTISET, RIISTETYT, JAKKE & LATERI, ÄPÄRÄT, RATTUS, TAMPERE SS, ALAMAAILMA, KUOLEMA, BASTARDS, HIC SYTEEMI, FUCKING FINLAND, DESTRUCKTIONS, MARIONETTI, M.A.P., PROTESTI, SEKUNA, TAAKU and VARAUS. No serious hardcore punk collection is complete without this compilation, period.

V/A RUSSIA BOMBS FINLAND - compilation lp - £8 SOLD OUT
One of the four essential 80s Finnish hardcore punk compilation lps (others being HARDCORE '83, YALTA HI-LIFE and FINNISH SPUNK HARD BEAT), RUSSIA BOMBS FINLAND was originally released in 1982 on the legendary Propaganda Records. Like the previously discussed "Hardcore '83" this reads as a who's who of Finnish hardcore/punk, featuring multiple tracks by KAAOS, BASTARDS, ANTIKEHO, NATO, TERVEET KADET, RIISTETYT, 013, MAHO NEITSYT, APPENDIX, SEKUNDA and DACHAU. You need it, your friends need it, everyone needs this. If there's anything better than Finnish hardcore punk, I've yet to hear it.

KOHU 63 - sotaa 81/82 - lp SOLD OUT - £8
More legendary Finnish hardcore punk! 24 absolutely amazing smashers in the vein of LAMA! Includes their classic material from the first EP. Mini-LP and LP originally issued on Poko Records in 1981/82! Comes with superb artwork and liner notes. All hail Finland!

NAMENLOS - 1983-1989 - lp SOLD OUT - £8
Much praise to Hohhnie for releasing this great document of 80s punk life of a time & place that's still often overlooked and underreported. Namenlos belonged to the first generation of punks in the then DDR ("communist" East Germany) and suffered much state repression during their existence. The government was scared of these "negative decadent youths" and by 1984 managed to pretty much destroy the blossoming underground scene. Unusual for many East German punk bands, Namenlos lyrics were openly and violently critical of the state. Their songs reflected the bleak life in East Germany, and in "Nazis in Ostberlin", a classic song if their ever was one, they compared the government with the Nazi regime. The state reacted quickly: August 1983, members of Namenlos were arrested, accused of "debasing society and government institutions" and convicted to up to 1 1/2 years of prison without probation; a ruling which kickstarted nation-wide persecution of punks. This amazing lp gives the great Namenlos their well deserved time in the spotlight and comes with an amazing thick booklet with band history and many pictures, some straight from the secret police's files. It has original rehearsal-recordings in seriously great sound-quality &2 amazing live-tracks from their Poland-tour. Classic and important stuff.

"Debut 7" from this Boston band featuring former / current members of LIBYANS, CONVERSIONS and AMPERE. The music is simple, catchy and to the point punk in the Dangerhouse tradition, but the vocals are what really sell this... incredibly unique and powerful, like Kathleen Hannah if she were really into Chavo-era Black Flag. Highly recommended!" -

THE POGO - police war - 7" - £3
"After a killer self released debut CD these Virginia punk bring you their 1st piece of vinyl and their best stuff yet! 3 ripping tracks of pissed off no nonsense punk". On Loud Punk records -

"3 ripping tracks of pissed off no nonsense punk3 song debut by Albany NY's best band. Melodic, eerie and tuneful punk like a more basic Wipers with very well sung female vocals" -
