How Long? - s/t Tape
In the mid-90's I bought some tapes from Poland, most of those are crusty stuff. Crustpunk and radical politics were blooming over there after the Berlin wall fell and the Soviet Union desintegrated. Most popular bands were Homo Militia and Sanctus Iuda.
Here's a tape of How Long?, a band that had members from Poland as well as from Czech.
The only vinyl release they did is a split 7" with Swedes Unarmed.
The band got together a few years back so it seems and released split albums with Roxor and Kulma. Think they're a full Czech band now.
Side A has studio recordings from 1996. The last 4 tracks on that side are the same as the split 7".
Side B has rehearsal recordings from 1997. Sound is not that great and tracklisting is a bit confusing. Found an untitled song somewhere at the end.
Cover songs of Discharge, Shitlickers and Konwent A.
I must admit that I don't listen to this kind of stuff for years. Got really bored with crust as I find most bands quite boring.
Think the tape was released in 1998, on Polish label Czerwony Diabełek.
