10-96/Insult To Injury - Ancient Future Split 7"

As half of the records posted here are from a good friend, he asked me to post this one here as he never heard the 10-96 tracks on this one.
10-96 were from Chicago and played ultrafast hardcore punk. They released 2 7" EPs on Beer City as well as the 'No Retreat' LP. All are worth checking out. I could rip and post them if needed. After singer Dean Dirt died, some members started Despite.
Don't know much of Insult To Injury. They did a 7" before called 'Hostile Behavior'. Not bad but more influenced by the late 80's with some mosh parts. Tracklisting is wrong on the sleeve for their side so see the correct one below.
Released on Will E. Survive in 1995.

1. Gotcha Going
2. Desert Scam
3. Wake Up
4. Bullshit
5. Money
Insult II Injury
6. Radio Slop
7. Inferno
8. Her Fool
9. Backlash

Mongo Mange Gatoo - Death Can Be Hazardous To Your Health LP

Quite obscure hardcore band from Amsterdam. Think the band consisted of young kids.
This album was released on their own Lethal Death Records label in 1986. Not a lot of info to be found on them, not even on the Nederpunk site.
Here's a review from MRR No. 45:

This Dutch band seems to model itself after outfits like PANDEMONIUM, who specialize in ultra-fast thrash with political lyrics. The harsh speedmetallish vocals are way in the front of the mix, which unfortunately pushes away the great instrumental sound here, but this is still a respectable debut. (SS)

1. Atomic War
2. CIA Battlefields
3. Go Ahead, Make My Day
4. An Offer You Can't Refuse
5. All Equal
6. Napalm Beach
7. Sniarb Erom Sniarb
8. Baalzebub's Back To Earth
9. Kill The Mayors
10. Capital Punishment
11. Nuclear Holocaust
12. Death Can Be Hazardous To Your Health
13. Mens Sana In Corpore Sano
14. Acid Rain

Bedlam - s/t LP / Lost In Space 12"

Here are both records of New Jersey band Bedlam. Some members, together with some members of A.O.D. ran Buy Our Records.
Lots of short songs with a sense of humour. Some were taken from TV series like Flintstones. 'Lost In Space' originally written by Jerry Goldsmith. 'Generation Landslide' originally by Alice Cooper. 'Burnin' Love' is also a cover but I don't know of who.
The only song I can't stand lyricwise is 'A.I.D.S.', another stupid rant with a homophobic tone. It seems that a lot of people back in the day thought that AIDS only infected gays and was only possible to get through anal sex. We all know better these days.
