CONTAGIOUS ORGASM - Live At Maschinenfest 2018 - (Raubbau-Germany-2018)


 Raubbau picks up the thread and continues with its quest to make available memorable maschinenfest performances. contagious orgasm was a mf regular, and this perfectly shows the progression from the 2008 performance made available last year: gone are the idm leanings, the co sound of the 2010s (which is presented here) is even more a language of its own, abrasive and accessible, palpable and psychedelic at the same time.

get ready for some active listening - “afterglow” and “operation blue” are like a walk over thin ice, with acoustic strings and percussions, intimate melodies, whispered vocals and eerie washes of background feedback. the two parts of “exploration end seeking” are examples of co’s experimental leanings and an appreciation of the musique concrete. “mineral” and “firewalker” sport almost-rhythms and through a psyched-out, spooky back-alley take the performance to its noisy finale. It goes without saying that the sound quality is flawless, representing all the fine details of the truly unique co sound.

KAAOS-Nukke Ep-(Havoc Records-USA-2000)


 Recorded in 1985 but only released in 1993 on the Finnish Fight Records,this is the  re-print by the American Havoc Records made in 2000. Here a good bio from their official webpage.   click me

KAAOS was formed by four 14-15 year old young punks in March 1980 to play raw and noisy punk music because most of old so called punk bands had changed their styles to the new wave. At first they were mostly influenced by bands like CRASS. Then when such style as hardcore came and bands like DISCHARGE, DISORDER, CHAOS UK etc., their style changed to faster and more aggressive. KAAOS can be considered as a pioneer in hardcore in Finland and even in Scandinavia. The first record waited to be released to the end of 1981 including the legendary "Kytät On Natsisikoja". The line-ups were changing and records were released in a steady stream and the band made gigs also (KAAOS got a reputation as a "riot squad"). KAAOS was approached by some record labels to larger audience but the band kept their D.I.Y. and punk attitude. The first LP was released in 1984 ("Ristiinnaulittu Kaaos"). Before that there had been some confusions with line-ups (Jakke is the original member and former of the band) and other things. The things went to that point that the band decided to stop for so far in December 1985. After that band members played in other punk bands like KUOLLEET KUKAT, KOHU-63 and POSITIVE NEGATIVE. The new coming of KAAOS happened in 1999 in the funeral of the legendary club called Lepakko in Helsinki. From the old line-up there was Jakke and Sidney. KAAOS released couple of splits and collections and in 2001 was released 10" LP "Ismit" which brought some new ideas without forgetting the old aggro-HC. In the summer of 2002 the band made their second foreign tour which was organized by Pogo-Paul (the first was in 1984!). In April 2005 Jakke disbanned the band. Despite numerous requests to have KAAOS on stage again Jakke's decision stuck until October 2007 when KAAOS made an appearance (with original lineup!) in Tavastia Club, at the release party of the book "Parasta Lapsille". That proved to be the final KAAOS show. Jakke died a month later in November 29th 2007. He apparently died of alcohol-related causes at the age of 42.
