heart tree

i took this picture years ago, i noticed it while waiting for the bus(one reason for riding the bus is you see things you never would otherwise).
it took me years to take the picture but i am glad i did.

since then i kept telling myself i would take more pictures of it but always put it off.

about a week ago while passing it by(i never fail to look at it and say i am gonna take another picture) i noticed the branch on the right broke at the base of the fork(one reason not to put stuff off, but being brave works better in theory)

no more heart tree

the bags

the bags - 1978 - survive 7'' 2004 repress la,ca,usa
i read this looks exactly like the original except the label name that repressed it on the back of the cover. one of americas first punk bands playing somewhere between sex pistols and go-gos with their own raw originality and energy thrown in. the singer went on to be work musically with the singer of the brat and the bass player married the singer of the damned and moved to england and even was in the damned.

black flag simple straight forward hc with modern sensiblities

some more angry political hc, this time with some metallic crusty influence and boy girl trade off vocals

riot clone

riot clone - 1996 - to find a little bluebird lp england
this record has the best lyrics of the blog. political and angry. smart, clear and they even rhyme. this band was around in the 80s and this is heavy hc punk with punchy bass lines and catchy choruses that could have fit in with the early 80s stuff. great song writing and great band by great people. from the mid 90s to the early 2000s riot clone was pretty active then just kind of disapeared again.


anarchy - 1981 - ready steady go lp japan

one of the first ever japanese punk bands, started in 78 and continued till the late 80s then some members started other projects and are still jamming to this day. this is mostly a more power pop sex pistols, imagine a fancy swankys mixed with the variety of slits and later clash

now denial

same thing. the lp came with a cd version, same songs, slightly different cover art

now denial

now denial - 2004 - power to the mountain cd lowell,ma,usa

flagitious idiosyncracy in the dilapidation - 2009 - st lp japan

all girl grind from tokyo. brutal heavy mean ugly brutal brutal grind metal hc. dark, thick and tough yet catchy. this band not only has talent but know how to write great songs.


ecocide - 2010 - st lp san antonio,tx,usa

septic death

septic death - 1986 - now that i have your attention lp 2009 bootleg
really good bootleg, everything looks nice, included insert. the only difference i can tell from looking at pictures online is the side b center label is just the band logo but should be a track list. music is rough hxc thrash.

revenge of the kamikaze stegosaurus from outer space

va - revenge of the kamikaze stegosaurus from outer space lp 1988
mostly boston bands like psycho but this has ripcord and wretched also a band i never heard of from finland called damage, really good early 80s finland hc sound mixed with some speed metal,thrash but not too much. made me research them and they got a few records i will try to download later.

skate korpse

skate korpse - 2007 - discog lp rochestor,ny,usa
surf punk with some skate punk and 80s american hxc mixed in. sounds like it should of been from early 80s and not upstate ny. this collects 7''s and demos.

bluesey folky psychadelic dreamy undescribable really. pre mazzy star.

harms way

the seeds of the next season

va - the seeds of the next season lp 1999

get your metal core, emo, screamo, bremen style influence hc fix right here. i also uploaded the cd version earlier in this blog, same songs different insert artwork.


tumult - 2000 - st lp strauscheid,rheinland-pfalz,germany

total 80s american hc influence put in a blender and set on ludicrous speed.


hellshock - 2005 - shadows of the afterworld lp portland,or

very crusty metal influenced punk, i hear bits of tragedy and amebix mixed in with midpace to fullspeed punk. not as metal and internet will have you believe. so if you dont like metal you might like this and if you do like metal this is better than metal anyway and you will like it.


siekiera - 1986 - nowa aleksandria lp 2003 cd

this band started playing the most hard core hc punk you will ever hear and then went on to make this great new romantic new wave style album.

rerecording of greatest hits type thing. o g 77 punk.


the swankys - control demo 86 - 88 cd japan

scan says kings world on it but its prolly a bootleg, i downloaded on slsk years ago and figured why not share on here, if you got info please fill me in. musically you wont believe these guys were ever gai. its 77 with some power pop and rockabilly influence and really stands on it own.

if you have better scans please send em this way and some info on this release also is appreciated. thanks.

i know i have seen that cover before but without control demo written on it.


asbestos - 1996 - t0 the memory of a war victim cd japan

early discog since this band is still going, first demo is almost gai style and the rest have a bit cleaner sound and galloping pace. for being late 80s they make think of 90s crust mixed with early 80s gauze. charging hc tinged with metallic brief solos.


720 - 1999 - fuerza para luchar cd argentina

old school hc punk with some new school influence a bit or melody, the name is actual 720degrees but i cant type that little circle thing and i am pretty sure it is a skateboarding reference so couple that with pictures of them wearing hoodies and flyer with sick of it all and you should know what your in for.

hurt your feelings

va - hurt your feelings six weeks sampler cd 2000

has a track or two from previous releases, everything from pop punk to grindcrust and more.

the illegals

the illegals demo san antonio,tx
this band was around in the 90s i think and are friends of a friend, good poppy punk but not too poppy, a bit of bad religion sound mixed with fun lyrics.


discard - 2011 - sound of war discography cd sweden

guess this is a bootleg but maybe not

the first and best disband this has two demos, one was released on the comp tape stockholms mangel and some of those songs were made into a 7''. plus you get 2 songs from a rehearsal. also the full length lp which was made years later and with only the singer but its half old songs and some new songs, good but not great as the original recordings.

not only is it discharge influenced its even more brutally done by two mob 47 members in the original lineup.

Thursday, October 20, 2011

very metally grind punk, their first full length after a few 7''s hg fact and other underground punk labels


anfo - 2002 - la sangre de latinoamerica lucha y resiste 7'' peru
