CRESCENT - Electronic Sound Constructions - (Snapshot Records-UK-1997)

 Crescent plays a weird mix of abstract and lo-fi music remiding me some avant-garde experiments.This cd seems to be their only release and contains 8 tunes delivering some strange differences that make this album quite abundant.

Enjoy it.

v.a. - NAIVE - (Earache-UK-1992)

 Just giving this a 20th anniversary listen, I'm blown away. It becomes so obvious that at that time Earache was THE leading label for category-defying heavy music. Some of the greatest heavy string players are featured on it (Justin Broadrick, James Plotkin, Bill Laswell, Al Cisneros, Matt Pike), all of whom had already written major chapters in heaviness or were starting to do so.
Still wondering why it sounds so fresh ...

TERMINUS-Hands Up For An Early Grave-[Re-Issue-Best Sound Quality]-(K7-TPPL-UK-1992)


 I have posted this tape 9 years ago when I started this blog, that rip was not the best,so I finally re-digitised this tape and now you have a  better sound quality and since this tape is very difficult to find I decide to leave these tracks as waves.

The followers of this blog should know Terminus as I have, already, posted a few rarities by this amazing band. In fact, after posting this tape I got in touch with Mark(the singer & guitarist), who kindly passed on to me a few other tapes to share here.

For the people who missed all the other posts then I just copy and paste the introduction taken from their excellent webpage, I invite you to visit it to read more about this great band, you`ll find there interviews, discography, biography and more.

To finish this small introduction,a very big THANX to Mark for all his help and kindness.Enjoy this rare and fantastic tape, this time with great sound quality.

:f(a*r~a)w_a¬y click me

for those of you who don't already know (and that will be most of you I would think), TERMINUS are/ were a long serving 'punk-rock' band from the Steel Town of Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire and have been described
in the local press as anything from 'local rockers', 'indie-speed-doomsters' to (with tongue stuck firmly in cheek
 a 'psychedelic biker band'! None of which fits with singer Mark Richardson's description of the band as "Punk Rock, not punk-rock."
     Elsewhere, in fanzine reviews of gigs and records, comparisons have been drawn between such diverse bands as the Damned, Dead Kennedy's, Conflict, Naked Raygun, Bad Religion, "Motorhead meets the Mob", and "a cross between Hawkwind and the Subhumans." The vocals to such unlikely folk as Jake Thackary, Billy Bragg and Oi Polloi (in the same German review!), Dave Vanian and Animal (from Anti Nowhere League and again both in the same review) and even Richard Butler and Bauhaus! Needless to say the band themselves consider all such comparisons dubious and the possible result of alcohol abuse. More likely is the simple fact that, although charges of inconsistency and idleness would certainly stick, they could never be accused of being as musically one dimensional as many of their contemporaries.

What follows is a brief history of the band compiled by longest serving member and founder of the band, Mark, for the information of those who have and still show an interest in the bands past and, who knows, maybe present activities.

REVEREND QUEEN DADDY - Digital Theology - (Order of the Binary Singularity Records-USA-2021)

Hailing from Pelham, Alabama RQD have made it their mission to bring raw punk to this small town.
Digital Theology is their debut album and the songs featured on this E.P. are short bursts of distorted furious anger. Seemingly, held together with nothing more than feedback.

The guitars and bass are fuzzed out and distorted as hell, the drums are on top of the beat like the whole thing could fall apart at any moment, and the vocals are quick desperate shouts in pure frustration.
This is:
Not rugged indie rock masquerading as punk.
Not Fitbit-friendly neo-crust.
Not flavor-of-the-month blackened råwpunk.
And not d-beaten death metal matched with
a shiny new pair of Nikes.

This is:
The most raging, off-the-chain, raw noise, d-beat punk
“to fight the nightmarish reality of inept politicians,
land stolen from indigenous peoples, gender struggles,
genetic manipulations, and impending nuclear war that we all live in.”
A sick record that’s guaranteed to bring an immense
dose of chaos, destruction, and ear-bleeding tinnitus
to your miserable lives.
Feel free to pop a couple of analgesics before you listen

ÖPSTAND - No More Police Brutality - (Praxis/Murder Records-France-1996)


Öpstand was a fast-core band from France active in the mid 90 s.This 7inch has 12 tracks of pure Power-violence with lyrics against the police abuses and crimes, religion, oppression, nationalism and the like. It came out with a black and white xerox-sheet reporting the lyrics and a few info. It was released by these two French labels,the one called Praxis was an Hardcore label from Bordeaux, France, operated by Jeremy Profit and is not to be confused with the German industrial label with the same name. Eventually I left these tracks as waves.Enjoy it.

STARFISH ENTERPRISES - When We Fall - (Electrip -Belgium-1993)

 Starfish Enterprises was a Belgian rock band playing a form of noise-rock combined with electronics and samples. They released two albums but never had any real success. After the second album the band was disbanded. In that period, main man Koen Lybaert already moved away from playing the guitar to focus more on electronic music and hence Starfish Pool was born.(from Discogs) click me
