Snoopeez Tapeworm were a HC band from Chicago, active in the late 80's. They never released any vinyl back then but some recordings survived and were released on this 7" in the late 90's on Will E. Survive.
At least one member can later be found playing in Rat Bastards and Generation Excrement (posted a while ago).
Unfortunately the record doesn't mention any titles of the 6 songs so if anyone could help figuring them out, that would be much appreciated.
Thanks to Archie for ripping and sending this one to me. Great quality rip of the 1983 demo of Nardcore band False Confession. They also did a 7" on Mystic.
Here's the write-up of Archie himself as he can do it way better than me.
A ‘True' Confession i.e. Unheard Confession from 1983
OK, OK, It has been awhile since the last post, but only because I really was dumbfounded by a number of numbing thoughts. Have you ever wondered about what people mean when they say stuff like, “…those were the days,” and, “It’s a shame nobody had a tape recorder running,” or my favorite comment, “…their (insert some band name here) blah, blah, blah, recording was so much better, it’s a shame no one has committed THAT to vinyl.” How fucked is that? The whole thing is you were stoked a split second ago, gleefully downloading a band you’ve only heard of by how rare they are; and now some blubbering know it all robs you of that good feeling by a simple statement. Of course, it might be the case this individual is the same one kid we all knew growing up that claimed there was a better something out there…and you suck cause you don’t have that one…and much worse you never will. We’ll this post is for all of those dicks who can’t leave well enough alone…So stop chewing on the end of that gun barrel and peep this people!
False Confession is an elusive beast to find online. Sure you can find loads of info on Dr. Know and shit, which is good, fuxing love that band. This is not the case with False Confession, you will find nothing, and an annoying comment by someone out there that a 1983 Demo was “out there”, actually they heard it back in the day or something like that (go look at 7” punks False Confession post’s comments). But I digress.
False Confession consisted of four hard as nails- Nardcore-ians Scott, Harry, Isreal, and Fred. And if you didn’t notice, Isreal is sporting a mustache-that’s friggin real. Now here’s where things get a bit dicey, I know Fred was also in Dr Know, but is that the same Isreal in Dr Know??? And why does the guitar sound like Kyle Toucher’s glorious riffage, that gave us Life Returned and Mr. Freeze? This shit has to be sorted out I hope someone can fill us in on the details. (Look I was so confused I even made this before realizing he wasn’t listed in the band fux!) If that wasn’t enough compare the cover for the demo (Insert cover) with the picture of Kyle(Insert picture with kyleface)
After you download this close your eyes, set back in the dark and enjoy some of the most heinously-aggressive-shit-stompin’-good music you have ever heard since it happened.
Back in 1983.

Nice little gem of hardcore punk from Denmark. O.H.M. stands for Okkulte Hule Mystikere and this 7" is the only release I know of. Released by the band in 1986.
First track is an anti-racist song to avoid misinterpretation.

Sorry for the lack of posts last week but I caught the flu so I didn't feel like doing alot lately.
But here's a nice treat for you all. It's quite off the beaten HC/punk track.
'Meet My Friend Venom' is the 1st album of Melbourne band Venom P. Stinger. It was released in 1986 on No Master's Voice and is quite hard to find these days.
Singer Dugald MacKenzie and guitarplayer Mick Turner were also in the legendary Sick Things who released the classic 'Committed To Suicide' 7".
Venom P. Stinger did some other releases later like the 'Walking About' 7" and 'What's Yours Is Mine' LP on Aberrant, the 'Waiting Room' CDEP on Au-Go-Go Records, The 'Live In Davis' LP on Anopheles, the 'Thick-Skin' 7" on Death Valley Records and the 'Tearbucketer' CD on Siltbreeze.
Both Dugald and Mick were also active in Fungus Brains, a band inspired by the Birthday Party.
Mick Turner and drummer Jim White also started instrumental trio The Dirty Three.
Singer Dugald passed away in 2004.
Venom P. Stinger is a great mix of punk with noiserock. Check 2 videoclips on Detailed Twang.
