V/A Do You Remember Rock'n'Roll? LP

Regional compilation released on IM Records, the label of The Faction and it's offshoots.
One of those offshoot bands appear here as The Living End. Melodic punk sometimes using a piano. Has Adam "Bomb" Segal in the band.
The Faction appear here with 2 live tracks.
No Warning sounds as a crossover band, typical for the time.
Front Line also did a mini-album on IM Records.
Stikky deliver 2 very early tracks. Not as special as their later output.
Nitemare is speed metal.
Orange Curtain sounds quite dark and Jet Crash Miracle is more of an alternative rock band.
Steve Caballero of The Faction delivers a solo track.
Nothing earth shattering on this comp. I must admit. More of a document of what was happening in San Jose and the South Bay in 1986.

1. The Living End - Ghost Riders
2. No Warning - The Curse
3. Orange Curtain - Sybil
4. Stikky - Cow Tipping

Gasatsu Crime Fighter - Rude Beat 7"

Released on the cult label ADK, run by Tam of The Stalin and G-Zet.
Gasatsu have more of a streetpunk sound than hardcore but thanks to the heavy and raw production of Tam, this sounds quite great.
Gasatsu also appeared on the Neo Punk Disordery-ADK Omnibus Vol. 2 comp. 7" with 3 other bands : Gabbell, Glycerin and Molugu.
They did a 2nd 7" a few years later on Neo Family Records but it sounds clean and poppy and isn't that interesting.

2. Kanji Title
3. Emotional
4. Let's Linch
5. Freedom

White Flag / F - Peace Split LP

Released in Germany on Starving Missile Records in 1986.
The White Flag side contains mostly songs off their 'Wild Kingdom' LP except for the last 2 tracks which are live recordings and are cover songs of Red Cross songs. The 6th song is a cover of The Beatles.
Most songs on the F side can't be found elsewhere except for 'Attack' which appeared on one of the Flipside comp. albums. Last song is a cover of The Stooges. Their 4th song is written by Pat Fear and Jello B. Afro of White Flag.
Funny to see some letters of Tim Yohannan of MRR asking friendly to pay for the add that F placed in MRR for their 'You're An EP' 12". Guess they never payed for it.

Mornington Crescent - Demo 1982

Well here's a rare treat for you all.
Mornington Crescent came from Amsterdam and are wellknown for their classic but very rare 'Greetings From Amsterdam' 7".
Here's the demotape that precedes the 7". The line-up was a different one: another singer and even a female vocalist. Rumour goes that the 1st singer had to leave because he sounded too gruff. Pretty weird if you know that the singer on the 7" has even more gruff vocals.
The tape comes with a lyrics booklet but the weird thing is that the lyrics printed don't match with the songs on the tape.
The tape opens with the instrumental 'Wals'. Then you get some decent fast punk stuff. 'The Bomb' ends with the obligatory explosion. 'I (It's Me)' is only 3 seconds long and 'Filth' is the slow dirge here.

1. Wals
2. Government's Planning
3. Healthfood
4. I'm So Happy
5. Deze Niet
6. The Bomb

I Refuse It! - M 12"

I've seen that someone requested this record on Down Underground.
I Refuse It! was one of those Italian bands that pushed the borders of punk. They added sax, harmonica and sometimes keyboards to their sound.
The 1st release is the split tape with CCM that was later released (minus some songs) as a split LP on C.O.R. Records in the UK. Next release is a 3-track 7" on Totò Alle Prese Coi Dischi, a sublabel of Attack Punk Records.
The 'M' 12" is the band's 3rd release. Recorded in 1984/1985 but released in 1986 on Belfagor Records (CCM, Lanciafamme, Chain Reaction, Putrid Fever & Declino).
After this one came the 'Mind The Gap' 12" in 1989 but released one year earlier as a split LP with UK band Ultima Thule (with the drummer of Stazione Suicida) which you can find here.
There's a discography CD 'Cronache Del Videotopo' released in 2005 on Wide Records but I don't know if it's easy to get these days.

I tried my best to clean up the record but you'll still hear some noise, especially in the beginning of each side. The record looks clean but there's lots of crackling on my copy.

Eclectic and offbeat hard-driving punk. The Italian Butthole Surfers? Definitely outside stuff without losing the power.
-Tim Yohannon (from Maximum Rock'n'Roll #34, March 1986)

V/A Lung Cookies LP

Compilation released as a joint effort between Smoke Seven Records and Your Flesh zine.
This was originally planned as a cassette compilation but turned into a vinyl edition as vinyl gets more attention than tapes.
Recording quality varies with each band and most were taken from demo recordings.
Ten Minute Warning is a short-lived post-Fartz band.
Final Conflict is the Minneapolis one here who did a great 7" as well.
The Rejectors' songs seem like demo versions of the songs that appear on the split with The Accused.
RF7 songs also appeared on the 'Submit To Them Freely' 7" on Smoke Seven.
Willful Neglect released 2 great mini-albums back in the day, compiled on CD a few years ago.
Sacred Order did an album on Mystic and appear on quite a few comp. tapes as well.

Extremes - From Both Sides LP

Here's another record from a band that appeared on the 'The Not So Lucky Country' compilation.
Originally they were called Human Waste and started in 1984. Phil MacDougal, owner of Reactor Records was on vocals back then. After some line-up changes, the band changed name to Extremes.
This album was released in 1987 on Cleopatra Records. Songs were recorded at Hardcore House by Smeer, guitarplayer of Depression and drummer of Gash.
There's an extra track 'Super Powers' mentioned on the backsleeve but it doesnt appear on the record.
A 2nd LP was recorded for Waterfront Records but was never released as the band split up. But it seems that there's a plan to release it one of these days.

Dis-Organized Bunch Of Fuckers - So Full Of Lies LP

Here's the second effort of the Bremen punk gang Dis-Organized Bunch Of Fuckers. 18 songs in about 30 minutes. Great recording as well.
The sleeve is a bit weird. It's a fold-out sleeve with the lyrics printed on the outside and having a band picture on the inside. Not very creative me thinks.
The Finnish titled 'Ytheiskunnan Uhrit' means 'Victims Of Society'.
The band did another LP "Not Bound To Rules" in 1988 which I never heard before. Seems to be more metal influenced.
This album was released in 1986 on their own Pöbel Records label and was the 2nd release after their split with Nebenwirkung, posted a while ago.

Euthanasia - Ölöriefot Putkosessa, Kemoryölöt Kabinessa 7"

I've seen alot of Finnish HC/punk stuff posted on blogs but haven't seen this one yet. 1st vinyl release of Euthanasia although they already appeared on the '10 Vuotta Myöhemmin' comp. 7" on Hiljaiset Levyt in 1987. Also 2 songs can be found on the 'Dokumentti Todellisuudesta' comp. LP on SHJ Records in 1989. This 7" was probably released in 1988 on SHJ Records as well.
I also have a dubbed copy of the 'Ämpäri Päässä Pyöränkumia Pumppaa' cassette album but some tracks have flaws. The seller I got it from told me that the original recordings turned out that way, but I'm not sure.
In 1990 MCR Company from Japan released a split 7" flexi with Macrofarge. But the 3 tracks on the flexi appear on this 7" as well (maybe different recordings?).
Nice late 80's HC punk with a slight metallic edge.

The Rest - s/t LP

And here's another nice one on Destiny Records. The sole album of The Rest. They also appeared on a few comps. on Destiny as well.
This album was released in 1986 and contains a cover of the Avengers called 'We Are The One'. 'Your Eyes' is a sad lovesong (not very usual for a punkband). 'Every Sperm' is taken from Monty Python.
The song 'Midnight Wanker' is one I can relate to. Once I had to go through a park in the evening to get home. This park is wellknown as a gay meeting place. I wanted to take the shortcut instead of walking around it. Suddenly I saw some person running besides me with his pants in his arms. Further I had to pass a large building with pillars , so I knew that the freak would stand behind one of those pillars. And yes I was right. He was jerking off like a maniac! I sometimes wonder what goes on in some people's head.

V/A Who Cares LP

Excellent compilation of mostly Long Beach bands I guess. Pretty hard to find these days. The most wellknown names are Shattered Faith and the Cheifs. Political Crap has Duane Peters on vocals, later wellknown with his band U.S. Bombs. AKA are my least favourite of the bunch; a bit too poppy for my taste.
This album was released on the small label American Standard in 1981. Other releases I know on this label are the Primal Danse 12" (more postpunk sounding) and the 'Criminals' LP of Joneses.

1. AKA - Tomorrow's Theme
2. Cheifs - No Justice
3. Cheifs - Riot Squad
4. Shattered Faith - Discontent
5. Suspects - Baby Maybe

Underground Soldier - Fun Before Profit! LP

Only release of this female-fronted DC band. Underground Soldier recorded at Inner Ear Studios but I don't think they had alot in common with the DC hardcore scene. They more influenced by UK punk.

Released on Speed Of Sound in 1985.
Speed Of Sound was a small label with 4 releases:

Zshare under maintenance

As you already found out, zshare is having some issues since Thursday. I hope it will be fixed very soon so I can post something fresh here.

I found out that Welfare Records released a Psycho 2xLP/CD of their early recordings. This album contains the very rare 8 Song 12", the 'Son Of 8 Song' 7", 'Hosebags From Hell' LP, comp tracks and split 7" tracks and 11 tracks from 3 Unreleased Demos.
You can also pre-order the complete discography CD of PTL Klub as well.
Welfare Records can be found here.

I've read somewhere that Punks Before Profits is working on re-releasing the Insults 'Thrasher Go Home' 7" as well as an album of Born Without A Face. That band released 2 great 7"s as well as 2 demos I know of. First heard them on the 'There's A Method To Our Madness' comp. LP.

Landlords - Hey, It's A Teenage House Party! LP

Sole album of the Landlords released in 1984 on their own Catch Trout label. They did another 7" a few years later called 'Our Favorite Songs' but from what I read it contains 4 cover songs.
The artwork on the sleeve reminds alot to that noise band Happy Flowers. That's because 2 members of Landlords started Happy Flowers. If you're interested in hearing some Happy Flowers stuff, check their 1st 2 7"s here.
'School For The Deaf' and 'Let's Go' are very short songs ripped as one track.
I scanned the lyric sheet and included it with the file.

S.C.A. - Strong Concentration Of Anger MLP

Dutch band with ex-Outlawz singer Fokkie. Outlawz appeared on both 'Als Je Haar Maar Goed Zit' comp. albums on Vögelspin Records, the label run by BGK.
S.C.A. first appeared on the 'Beware Of The Wolf In Sheeps Clothing' comp. LP. but in those 2 years in between their sound evolved quite alot and reminds me to that typical European mid-80's sound.
This was released in 1987 on their own No Censorship Records.

V/A Wie Lange Noch LP

Requested by Savage Lorna of Hardcore Braindeath blog.
1st one of the 2nd batch of records I got from a friend. This is the 1st release on German label Double A. Mostly German bands on this one with Circle Of Sig Tiu,Wut and Tin Can Army as the best known. Some records of them can be found on Down Underground.
A.N.E.E.B. were also featured on Bullshit Detector Vol. 3 on CRASS Records.
Enola Gay is also the German band, not the Danish one. They were fronted by an English singer. They also released a 7" and a full length.
The non-German bands are Verdun from France and Pandemonium of Holland. IMO the latter band delivers the best song here. Don't think it can be found on their other releases as well.
The backside of the sleeve is one big rant against the apathy and fashion of all things punk. Double A Records chose to be more on the positive, active side of punk instead of all the "fuck, get drunk and destroy" side.
The A.N.A.L. tracks are switched on the sleeve.

1. Circle Of Sig Tiu - Fahnenflucht
2. A.N.A.L. - Ich Häng Mich Auf
3. Eklatant - Support Your Local Council
4. A.N.E.E.B. - Fak
5. Wut - Demokratie
6. Enola Gay - Absorbed Death
7. Tin Can Army - Kannibalen
8. Enola Gay - Unheared Cries
9. A.N.A.L. - Wehrdienst
10. Wut - Das Höchste Lebewesen
11. Eklatant - Slaves Of Power
12. Tin Can Army - Fear Is Slavery
13. Verdun - Berlin
14. Pandemonium - No Place For Me
15. A.N.E.E.B. - Identität

L.D.S. - On The Cross 7"/Nightmare LP

Mid-80's hardcore punk band with songs mostly with a horror theme. L.D.S. hailed from Salt Lake City, Utah. Always wondered how life must be for punx among all those religious freaks. Well there were a few known punk bands from Utah like Spittin' Teeth (on The Siren comp.LP), Massacre Guys, Maimed For Life (who have a nice 7" as well).
'On The Cross' was released in 1985 and the front sleeve was made by Maurizio Dodi, member of Italian band Raw Power.
The 'Nightmare' LP was released in 1986. There's an untitled piece at the end of the B-side which I entitled as 'Outro'. My copy is 2ndhand and has no lyricsheet (if it ever came with one).
As stated before, most lyrics are about blood 'n horror but 'Breeders' is a nice stab at those anti-contraception/anti-masturbation freaks who breed like rats although they can't afford all those kids. Reminds me of that creepy woman from Alaska. Her ethics are a crime against humanity IMO. Just like the pope who is against the use of condoms and is indirectly responsible for the thousands of AIDS-related deaths in Africa.
About the band, don't know what happened to them as it seems they weren't around for long. Maybe they became 'good christians' after all?
Oh and anyone knows what the initials stand for?

Active Ingredients - s/t 7"

I think there are a few bands called Active Ingredients but this one is the Lexington, Kentucky band.
Active Ingredients did 2 7"s, this one and the 2nd one 'Bringing Down The Big Boys'. The latter one has been bootlegged in 1993 on an LP which also has the Catatonics, Clitboys and Mecht Mensch 7"s.
Both are rare these days.
This 7" was released in 1984. Compared to the 2nd one, it sounds a bit thin. A version of 'Service With A Smile' also appears on 'Bringing Down The Big Boys'.

1. Service With A Smile
2. Take From The Poor, Give To The Rich
3. Straight Jacket
4. You Suck

Nebenwirkung/Dis-Organized Bunch Of Fuckers - Split LP

Split album of 2 Bremen hardcore punk bands. Released in 1985 on Pöbel Records.
Nebenwirkung did a 7" 'Gewalt' on Heimat in 1984. Another 7" was released in 1987 but it seems to be more metal-influenced.
Dis-Organized Bunch Of Fuckers were a bit controverisal back in the day, especially for their song 'Ich Kann's Nich Versteh'n', which sounds quite homophobic although they claim to be not homophobic at all. Chaotic Dischord seems to be their main influence. After this split, they did 2 more albums, the 'So Full Of Lies' LP (1986) (which I plan to post later) and the more metal influenced 'Not Bound To Rules' (1988).

This split is quite long so I split both sides in 2 files.

1. Gnadenlos
2. Tierversuche
4. Heroin
5. Religion
6. Frieden
7. Sterbehilfe
8. Ich Habs Satt

Target Of Demand - Man's Ruin MLP

Here's a great but somehow overlooked hardcore band. They also appear on the 'When Men Were Men...' comp. LP posted a while ago.
They are a straight-edge band but their lyrics stay far away from the usual cliché topics of such bands. Most of them are attacks on the rich, the government,...
After the split, some member(s) formed the band Dissension whose 'Why Work For Death' is also a classic. They did a 2nd LP in the late 80's.
'Man's Ruin' was self-released in 1983.

1. The Poor Rich
2. Funny, Huh?
3. Government
4. Man's Ruin
5. Not The One

Insanity Defense - Pilgrim State LP

Insanity Defense play hardcore punk with a melodic edge. They were from NY. Consisted of 3 members: Jeff Earing on vocals & guitar, Ron Phillips on drums and Nelson Rowe on bass.
Don't know anything about them. 'Pilgrim State' is their only release from 1985.
Pilgrim State seems to be a notorious psychiatric ward.
The last song 'Witchhunt' is a slow dirge song.

1. Pilgrim State
2. I'm Waiting
3. Something To Believe In
4. Let Me Help
5. How Long?
6. Make The Change

Clyng-Onz/Psychedelic Skeletons - Split LP

Here's the 2nd and last release on Anchorage, Alaska label Bullhead Records. This is a split album with 2 punkbands, Clyng-Onz and Psychedelic Skeletons, released in 1985. Quite different from the Skate Death album. Especially the Psychedelic Skeletons have some weird songs here.
Don't have any info on these bands. We should be glad that someone had the idea to release some Alaskan punk on record otherwise there wouldn't have been much known about punk in Alaska to the rest of the world.

More punk from Alaska! Hot on the heels of SKATE DEATH comes this split LP of strange and diverse sounds. The CLYNG-ONZ are a more primitive, goofy band while the SKELETONS have a diversified sound from trashy grungy to weird dischordant noisefests.(MRR #35)

1. Let's Get Juvenile
2. Environmental Song
3. Ten Miles North
4. Jiz's Revenge
5. Strange Ranger
6. Escanaba

ZZZ Hacker - Kind, Sieh Da Nicht Hin! 7"

Here's another one of my friend. Think it's quite rare.
Actually I don't know anything of ZZZ Hacker. They were from Bielefeld and this 7" was self-released in 1983. The 'Pogographie 4' book states this as well done hardcorepunk with kinky lyrics. There's no lyrics sheet and my German isn't that great so I wouldnt know.

1. Jim Knödle
2. Schwarze Rote Gelbe
3. Ein Männlein
4. No More Müsli (Für Petra)

Where's The Pope? - Straight Edge Holocaust MLP

Now let's get back to Australia. Here's another fine record, this time of Where's The Pope? from Adelaide.
The sleeve art probably caused some problems with the straight edge kids. It's a bit of a simplistic assault but understandable. While XXX kids were fulminating against peer pressure, some of them used the same tactic as well.
Where's The Pope? started in 1985 and were influenced by the US skatecore bands. 'Jesus Gets Rich' is an attack on religion, while 'There Goes The Neighbourhoood' is an ironic aproach towards the racism in Australian society.
Never heard their 2nd album 'Sunday Afternoon Barbeques' but it seems to be not that hardcore anymore.
This mini-album was the last release on Reactor Records in 1988.

1. You Dick
2. D.U.I.
3. Jesus Gets rich
4. Pizza To Go
5. No Better Than Us
6. There Goes The Neighbourhood
7. Computer Error
8. Me And My Gun

Chronic Disorder - s/t 7"/ 1st LP

And another gift from Donut Duck. Not ripped by himself but found somewhere else.
Here's the 1st 7" and 1st album of Connecticut band Chronic Disorder. The 7" was released in 1983, limited to 300 copies. Only knew a few songs from it that appear on the 3-way split album 'Hardcore From The Early Days' with The Target Cells and White Pigs.
Their 1st album is sometimes called 'Spit-Man And The Masters Of The Universe/Big Smelly Fish'. 300 pressed with silkscreened covers by the band itself. But there's also a pressing on Dirt Records as well. Released in 1985.
I only knew their 'Fred' 7" and the 'Blithering Idiots' LP. They also did an album for Posh Boy 'The Drums Of War'.
Chronic Disorder are still active but moved to Seattle.

Nuclear Crayons - Bad Pieces Seen... LP

Check the full title on the cover scan as it's way too long to type in the title.
Another generous gift from Donut Duck. I know this post will make some people happy, especially Jove Moix.
Before this album, Nuclear Crayons released the 'Nameless' 7" and was described as 'disturbing' in MRR. This is weird stuff, not your usual punk thing.
I first heard them on the 'Mixed Nuts Don't Crack' comp. LP. This one was also issued on Outside Records, the Nuclear Crayons label. Check that album on French blog Pay No More Than.
For a full history (although it's still work in progress) check their website here.
For the Outside Records discography, check here.

The album was released in 1984, 500 copies.

RPA - s/t 7"

Thanks alot to Donut Duck for this one. More from him in the coming days!
I was really surprised when listening to this. This is decent early HC punk. The initials stand for Raging Peasant Army. The band was from Seattle. This 7" released in 1982. A pity there's only 2 songs on this one.

1. Shoot The Pope
2. Bonecrusher

V/A Amuck LP

As requested by Donut Duck.
'Amuck' was the 1st compilation that Phoenix, Arizona label Placebo did. Maybe not as consistent as 'This Is Phoenix Not The Circle Jerks' but has some interesting moments. I'll have to warn you that it's not all punk here, especially on the 2nd side. Placebo wasn't a strict punk label as they released some experimental stuff as well like the 'Dry Lungs' series.
Ex-Velvet Underground Maureen Tucker played drums for Paris 1942.

Deface - s/t 7" / Government Denies Knowledge 7"

One of the better bands from the 90's. Deface isn't so wellknown but members are veterans of the USHC scene. Kevin Reed and Eric McIntire were also in the first line-up of Attitude Adjustment. Eric played bass on the 'Deadly Serious' demo. Kevin was replaced by Andy Andersen and Eric was asked to leave the band afterwards. So they didn't appear on their most wellknown release 'American Paranoia'. After Attitude Adjustment fell apart, they reformed with Kevin and Eric which released albums like 'No More Mr. Nice Guy' and 'Out Of Hand'. You could say that Deface was the follow-up band as Sean Sutton who plays guitar in Deface, also played in the last line-up of Attitude Adjustment.
Eric and Kevin also play in the great Deathtoll. They have a 7" on Kangaroo Records and a split album with Blown To Bits on Despotic Records.

Attitude Adjustment reformed again. Check their Myspace page here.
Deathtoll on MySpace here.
