Pizda Materna "s/t" 12"

Pizda Materna were quite popular crust band here in the 90s. The members of the band were mainly from other slovenian band, Scuffy Dogs (who had more of a punk/ska/reggae thing going on) + female singer Lea and male singer Richard from Gorizia, Italy (who used to sing in Warfare?, run Nuclear Sun Punk records and sings in reformed Eu's Arse). This was supposed to be a 7" record, but due to pressing plant fuck-up it's 11 minutes long 12". They also had split LP with Brigade O.D. from Macedonia and split (live?) tape with Maggot Slayer Overdrive from UK which I don't have, so if someone has it, I'd like to hear it. I guess that's about all I can remember 'bout them. For more info read this Ripping Thrash interview with the female singer.

Day By Day "We Need More Than Your Compassion" 7"

This post gave me the idea for posting Day By Day 7" again. Short info on the band is in the previous post. I'm lazy to write anything else than this. Well, except maybe that the previous 7" posted here is better in my opinion (but it doesn't mean that this one is bad).
Still haven't fixed the player problem (if anybody knows reliable mp3 host lemme know), so here's another video of

Sanctus Iuda/Sarcasm split 7"

I've already posted one Sanctus Iuda split 7" (with Dog On A Rope). This time it's split with UKs Sarcasm, also a result of a tour together. If you're not familiar with the bands, SI played really great crust (one of my favourite polish crust bands in the 90s) with lyrics often aimed against the church and Sarcasm played more noisy (Disorder kinda noisy) hardcore punk. Two of the members are in even more "Disorderish" noisy band now - The Wankys. You should check them out too. SI stuff from this and two more of their split EP's was released as "Jap Pressing: EP's Of Sanctus Iuda" on Profane Existence Far East and I guess you could still track it down on some distros.

Deformed Conscience "Constant Strife" 7"

I'm not gonna write their history. To see that go to their MySpace. I'm just gonna say that this is the way to play crust and this is surely one of my favourite records of 90s. This is released on their own label Adversity Records and cover artwork for this 7" is done by THE artist for your crust records - Marald (who was then known as Shitface). He also did shitloads of drawings for other stuff, but you already know that.
After you listen to this go to Unrest Records and buy discography double LP "Hagen Days" which they released in 2007 (again with Marald's cover).

AOS3 "Diversionary Tactics"

I had kind of computer/monitor/graphics card crash combined since last weekend and haven't ripped anything, but to make it up, here's one CD rip after a long time. It's another AOS3 release from my last order, since there were quite a few downloads of the last one. This is their second album from now defunct Inna State Records, so if you still wanna buy this, hurry to Southern Records. They still have some of them left. AOS3 split after this album, but last year they reformed and are gigging again and making new album. I hope I won't chew all my nails 'till it comes out. Enjoy.

Crunch "Ran-Core" 7"

This is I believe first release from these longhaired hardcore bunch from Torino, Italy. I've watched them on Monte Paradiso festival in 1995 and their fast music managed to make me and a friend of mine from the state of being dead drunk and nodding to being fully awake and dancing in the front rows. Haven't heard much about them later, but they were really amazing live band. I have two more of their 7"s and they were all released on their TOHC (Torino hardcore) records. Try it and you'll love it.

AOS3 "On A Knight Train" 12"

This came in the last batch of music I've ordered. I thought I was buying an AOS3 single, but this is two remixes of AOS3 songs by Zion Train and Knights Of The Occasional Table (I like the later better). I guess that this won't be downloaded much as this is not where people into electronic music stop by to check out what's new (old). But if you are into it you could like this. Or if you are completist or AOS3 fan like me.

Fun People "The Portrait Of Sudamerican Sun Rockers" LP

Fun People were great (mostly) melodic hardcore band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I don't wanna go too much about their sound because they go from acoustic ballads (Otro Mundo) to fast hardcore in HHH vein (Boicot Antinaturals). Their musical diversity can be seen in covers on this LP and that are New York Dolls, The Clash and Black Sabbath. All in all really great band that always lifts my spirit and that's always a good thing. Highly recommended.

Fakofbolan/Dark Busters split LP

If you're croatian you know all about this LP and if you're not, here's some info on it.
Fakofbolan were from Pula and they played probably the greatest singalong punk rock in Croatia ever that filled every club they played. This was their first vinyl release (before this I've only heard one split tape with Confusione Totale (also from Pula), but I don't believe that was a proper release). This stuff was later available as a bonus on CD version of their next album "Jedini Dokaz" (without the booze hymn and a joke featured here). They also had one more album before they split in 2006 after 13 years of playing.
Dark Busters were also from Pula and they played their kind of jazzy hardcore and were really great musicians. At the time of this release these two bands played really a lot (often together). This is their only release as pretty soon after this they changed their name to After Buster Future Beat and played analogue trance music (that'd be with the same "classic" instruments, bass guitar and drums). Later the drummer from DB played for Fakofbolan too (and a lot more other bands including legendary Pula punks "KUD Idijoti").
Look at this as kind of croatian version of Defiance/Raped teenagers split LP. Enjoy.
P.S. Just found out two and a half hours after posting this that Šela, the guy singing Himna Tounju on Fakofbolan side died hit by a car after returning home from
Antifa festival. He was one of those people that always tried to make you laugh and most of the times succeeded. Pula won't be the same without you my friend. This post is for Šela.

Inferno "Hibakusha" LP

This is the second album from this German hardcore punk legends. They were formed in small Bavarian City of Augsburg in 1982 and they relased most of their stuff on singer Howie's label. There's no info on the LP of year when it was released. Some sites say 1985 and some 1986, but I reckon it's the later. I'm a bit lazy now writing about them and I'll just copy/paste text from Destiny records who have re-released all of their stuff on 2CD discography (which you MUST get of course):
In the Mid-80ties INFERNO were a worldwide well known (the most known) Hardcore Band from Germany, especially known in USA, Japan, Brazil,... but also in (former socialist) Yugoslavia, in Australia or Malaysia. The group tours all over Europe, as an active cell of the continental Hardcore-network, a network which reaches from the Basque Country up to Helsinki, from Amsterdam to Athens, from Bristol to Belgrade; Thrash- and Speedmetal-Acts such as Hirax, Slayer, Anthrax or S.O.D name INFERNO as one of their biggest influences in several interviews and features.

Impact "82-85" LP

This record (as the name suggests) collects early works from this legendary Italian hardcore punk band. It contains '82 demo (tracks 1-3), rehearsal from the same year (tracks 4 and 11), split 7" with Eu's Arse (tracks 5-10) and Solo Odio LP (tracks 12-21). You can hear moving from more punk sound of the first demo to a more aggressive sound in the later stuff. This is re-issued on CD as 80-87 which means that there's more stuff, but I won't buy it 'cause Giulio The Bastard (of Cripple Bastards) who did this LP and the CD is now promoting serbian chetniks, (and such moronic mentality) who are fascist from the WWII era same as ustashe here in Croatia (and who fought each other btw, which is even more weird 'cause Giulio's mother is croatian).
Anyway, later in the 90s Impact have gone through some sound changes which resulted in more and more bad stuff (in my opinion). Impact's last record (as far as I know) is split 7" from '95 with another Italian band called D.U.S.K. that has only the guitar player from the original line-up and I don't believe that I've ever listened their 2 songs or the other band's 'till the end. That's one of rare records that I'd not miss.
Anyway the stuff here is legendary and asskickin raw hardcore punk italian way. Enjoy!

Riot/Clone "Do You Want Fries With That?" LP

Riot/Clone were anarcho punk band that started playing in 1979, then disbanded few years later, reformed in 90s and split up again few years back when the original singer moved to USA. The rest of the band carries on as Refuse/All. I've never had anything else by this band, but I've came across a review that says that this album is their best effort and I'll believe that. This record is entirely dedicated to animal liberation and it kicks the butcher ass. It starts with the dub track with animals on vocals (yes, that's right) and ends the same way too. Just read the titles of the first and last song. The album rages from the beginning 'till the end altogether with spoken word tracks and it also has some catchy tunes too. I'm singing Hillgrove for three days now. You'll find some of the best animal liberation songs ever here.

VA "Mind Pollution" LP

This is a compilation LP from Words Of Warning label located in Bristol, UK. It was in my opinion one of the best labels out there. In the beginning they've put out mostly punk and hardcore bands with some of my all time favourite releases like Oi Polloi's "In Defence Of Our Earth" LP and Resist's "The Solution... Revolution", also some Terminus stuff. Later, they've also put out stuff from hip-hop, techno (Autonomex - see the last post), psychedelic... artists. Such wide taste for musical styles is presented here on this LP. Beside the above mentioned bands, here's also one technoish track and some plain weird stuff and this is where I'll stop. Explaining what kind of music is something that was never my cup of tea. Coffee, actually. Just download this and let the music do the talking.

Internal Autonomy "Only You Have The Power" 2x7"

This double 7" is PE's 10th release and it brings quite good UK anarcho punk with a post punk touch. I don't know much about this band. Found out that they also had "Love & Life" 7" and "Inquiry" LP on Recordrom Records (you can find it here). They sounded different on each of their releases and were not afraid to step out of the anarcho punk waters and explore new sounds. They later changed their style to anarcho dance, tekkno, dub and changed their name to Autonomex and had some releases on Words Of Warning. Their techno affair also carried anarcho punk spirit with sampling Crass and south american anarchist brooadcasts. Well, that's about all I know. Please do fill in with comments if you know more about this anarchist combo.

Those Who Survived The Plague "A Plan To End All Plans" LP

This is the last album by this Austrian punks. This sounds much better to me now than when I bought it. It's kinda melodic hardcore punk with female vocalist and the only melodic punk that I've listened at the time (and pretty much now too) was NOFX's album Ribbed, Petrograd, Peace Of Mind and Quarantine (as much as I remember). Anyway, if you're into that type of stuff this would be highly recommended. Two of the members now play in another melodic punk band called Brambilla.
Here you have some kind of discography page of theirs.

Distress "Put U Raj" 7"

This is not Distress from Saint-Petersburg, Russia that's active now, this is band from Belgrade, the capitol of ex-Yugoslavia and now Serbia, that was active in early 80s. Distress (together with Solunski Front and Necrophilia) were the part of the first wave of hadcore bands from Belgrade. Until 1982 they were called Herpes Distress. They were influenced by early Finnish hardcore punk bands like Rattus, Kaaos and Bastards. During their existence they shared the stage with some of the all-time greats that played in ex-Yu like Rattus and B.G.K. in 1984. They were one of the few ex-Yu hc punk bands that managed to get some studio time because the producers from the studios were state puppets and state didn't liked punk very much. This is the stuff from that session and it waited 12 years to be released on vinyl. One of the more notable appearances of theirs was on the World Class Punk compilation tape done by Mykel Board from MRR. Well this was short version of bio from the 7" and now go grab this killer record because you'll have hard time to get the vinyl 'cause there were only 200 copies pressed.

Kurort "Oslo" 7"

Austrian band that was quite popular in mid 90s. Their name was popping out everywhere and that's why I bought the 7". The music is quite intense hardcore with sometimes bit melodic sound. I like this more now then when I bought it. This was the second release of Belgian label Conspiracy Records. Never knew that the label is so big. On their blog they say: "Conspiracy Records is a label, online store, booking agent and distributor", and when you see some of the names they carry - wow!!! Their third release, Kurort's "Miss Fitness USA" LP is still available from them.
Kurort have MySpace page done by "a friend who runs this profile to keep them in memory". You can find six more songs and two videos there.
P.S. This is what I've found on
Conspiracy Records' blog. Check it out. Another Austrian talent. This made my day.

Telefon "Háková Panenka" LP

This Czech band gave me a headache. First of all, the record has no tracklist, just little TVs with the lyrics inside (maybe there is a song title or two in them, I can't tell). Second, these TVs are not in order - but all mixed up just to make it even harder to follow (and therefore split the tracks). Just see the second picture. That's why I've named the songs with the numbers. Third, I've found nothing on the web about them, just Filip from See You In Hell recommending this LP as one of 10 Czech records to buy. I don't like this "arty" - let's annoy that sad twat that bought the LP - type of covers.
And the music... It's quite good actually. It's sung in Czech and it's kind of NoMeansNo-ish (as I've mentioned before, I suck at describing music) and maybe a touch of Melt Banana, but I'm not sure 'cause it's been over ten years since I've last heard them. Get it? I guess not.
OK, I'll stop now before I embarrass myself even more. Try it. It's good. Malarie Records should be quality proof.

If there's someone that knows more about this band please do fill in with comments.

Unamused "Haven't You Been Deceived " LP

Unamused was political band from Portland, Oregon, USA. They had two 7"s and this LP and that's about all I know about them. Funny enough, that's all that their ex-bassist Todd knows too! He's doing their MySpace page but there's not much more info than here. They existed from 1991-93 and when they disbanded the members teamed up with the leftovers from two more legendary Portland anarcho punk bands Deprived and Resist and formed the mighty Defiance that made THE punk album of the 90s.
The drumming style (beating the snare twice) reminds me of an short-lived band of mine with Vice (formerly of Apatridi) drumming.
This LP was relased by now defunct Allied Recordings run by John Yates who also run Stealworks which did numerous covers for hardcore punk releases (Alternative Tentacles releases were my first contact with his work), books and what not. Produced by Slayer Hippy of Poison Idea fame.
Intro is not on the LP tracklist, but I've split it into a separate song.

Naked Aggression "Right Now" 7"

During the 90s these hollywood anarcho punks have been working their asses off and have been quite active touring, doing benefit gigs and recording. Their love for activist/political side of punk was shown when they cheated their way into Bullshit Detector 4 compilation done by swiss label Resistance Productions, Loony Tunes and two more. The thing with the Bullshit Detector compilations (same as 3 previous on Crass records) was that the bands on it had to have no previous vinyl release so they appeared on it by changing their name to Naked A's (that song later appeared on split 7" with Aus-Rotten). Clever.
Anyway, this is great band carrying some fine tunes and I used to listen to them quite a lot.
The 7" is untitled (on the cover) but the label site says it's called Right Now after the first song.
Here's their website, but I'm not sure if they're doing it since its quite uninformative / incomplete discography etc...
Here's live video from this year's gig in Köpi, Berlin.

Day By Day "Ganz Was Feines?" 7"

Great political hardcore punk band from Karlsruhe, Germany.
I have only two of their 7"s and don't know if they had anything else out, but both of their record covers deal with animal liberation just like a lot of their lyrics too. Their members later formed Lost World and the singer Tati (with incredible raspy voice if you haven't heard it yet. One of my favourite female vocalists) was part of crust punk "supergroup" project Endrophobia with Kelly from every great punk band in the world (you know who that is).
Since the site where I keep mp3s for the player gives me shit lately I cannot put mp3s for you to have a preview so go here and see live performance of a song from this record.

Neos "Fight With Donald" EP

First time I heard Neos was when I borrowed their "Hassibah Gets The Martian Brain Squeeze" 7" from someone and they immediately popped up on my bass guitar (DIY sticker of course). This Canadian bunch play breakneck fast hardcore and they shared the stage with the likes of Dead Kennedys, Black Flag and canadian Subhumans. This record has 18 (some are joined together) rehearsal and live tracks recorded in 1983 - the year when they broke up. Later the members played in various bands and projects of which Mexican Power Authority is most known.
You can find more info on their KFTH page and MySpace (it looks that discography is in the works so watch out).
Since this 7" has most extensive bio that I've found, I've scanned it with some OCR software (haven't checked if it turned out 100% right), so if you're interested you can read it here:


infamous scientists, house of commons, the nevar, distortion, nuclear errors, pink steel, easy money, dayglo abortions, the keys, the do-wops, velox strepitus, suburban menace/red tide, the nematodes, da jeep, nomeansno, jerk ward, purple city, pat bay & the malahats, disrupt, twisted minds, automatic shock, the clicks, censored chaos, the slip, divine death...the neos.
separated by an hour and a half ferry ride from the mainland, victoria had a population around 150,000 in the early 1980's when all the above bands were kickin'. i always felt that isolation was key to the diversity and originality of many local bands. the scene at that time was fairly small and tightly knit, and there was a sense of groundbreaking adventure... no feeling of everything having been done already. "all ages" shows meant exactly that, people aged fourteen to forty, whereas today the turnout typically is 100% teenage. hall shows were so common as to be ubiquitous, and generally a lot more fun than going to a smoky bar. people would drink but they were usually discreet and there wasn't much hassle...but on the other hand there was always a certain sense of danger or uncertainty...something could go wrong at any minute, and often did...a fight, the cops, the hall manager flipping out...but i only recall a few gigs ever being shut down. nowadays if i want to see a band i find myself hanging out in some sleazy airless club that basically exists as an extension of the alcohol industry, including most of the bands...just ain't the same...or else hanging out around a real tame bunch of teenagers who seem mostly pretty indifferent to the whole thing, and who can blame 'em...
well, you wanna hear about the neos. steve bailey and dave durrant (a/k/a "donald", later "the crustaceous beast") were about 14 when they got way hipped on the sex pistols album and formed the band. this would*ve been around november-december 1979. they had 4 or 5 songs and a plastic k-mart practice amp. soon they recruited their pal mario to slug the skins and started the tradition of the "afterschool practice"... usually in mario's room, later dubbed the "sweatbox". eventually dave was booted and formed the nematodes as a Sort of revenge, i believe..."gonna show those fuckers" kind of deal...the nematodes were probably the most incompetent and laughable band i ever put an ear to. it almost qualified as naive art... needless to say, they ruled. steve and mare found this Scottish guy named gary to "play bass". most of a year later this lineup played the band's first show, on march 7 1981 at the ray ellls dance studio. this unique one-time-only venue played host to one of the most unforgettable shows of that whole time period. basically it was just a solid great gig, but beyond that it really seemed to crystallize the more "punk rock" oriented elements of the scene. seems to me the sense of identity this show created lasted in some way or another for most of the decade. at this time there may have been around 150 people involved in the punk rock side of things. these were the days of getting mocked, chased, and beat up for having short hair or looking weird. anyhow, it turned out that gary was what you might call a "certified non-musician"...coincidentally i happened to meet steve at a gig at the fernwood in late april 81. we got kind of chatty and a week later i found myself playing bass in the neos. cool score! we practiced through the whole summer and played at the fernwood on august 1. incidentally this was the first nomeansno gig ever, opening as a two-piece. day after the show i happened to meet rob wright, still wearing his ramones t-shirt, passing through the graveyard. no, we got to talking and he offered to record us on this teac four-track he had that was always breaking down.
ultimately we did the beds for "end all discrimination" with rob, one evening in early September. right after that steve and mare had a big fight and the band split for a few months. somehow we pulled it back together in time to play a show January 10 and also managed to record vocals for the ep one december Sunday in the living room of the Vancouver street house. "end all discrimination" came out february 20. at that time there was a pressing plant in Vancouver so it was pretty quick and easy to run off 500 copies like we did. one thing i liked about the cover for that record was the three or four different colours it came in. mine's green, i think there was orange and off-white and maybe one other. so we had this record out, and proceeded to distribute it through rough trade (can you say "rip off"? sure...! knew you could) and our own mail order. and we started doing a lot of writing to people.
during 1982 we wrote the material for "hassibah gets the martian brain squeeze", practiced 84 times, played five shows, and did tons of correspondence. there were a few people who really did a lot for us in getting the word out through their own correspondence, pushead is the one who really comes to mind, he even did a piece of artwork for the "hassibah" label. jello biafra was also a big fan and helped get our name around. "hassibah" was recorded September 18 in scott henderson's basement studio, located approximately where the produce department of save-on foods is now. we got a pretty good sound in there and overall i, for one, was a lot happier with this recording. we pressed 500 ourselves at first, and later on went for an offer we got from ratcage records in new york to repress it for "10%"...sure we were naive, but unless you just came down outta the trees you've already guessed we never even made back what we paid to mail the guy our master tape and artwork. don't ever do this, kids! and hey, dave, where's our "10%" of all those reputed thousands of records you pressed and sold, mainly in europe from what i heard? ah, jesus...wel1, at least he sent us some copies. it's a better mastering job than the first pressing, actually.
the neos played sixteen shows between march 1981 and October 1983, including some cool shit like getting to open for black flag in July 82 and for the dead kennedys in Vancouver at ubc and then here in victoria, both in april 83. we even managed to scrape up a few shows in Oregon and California in august of 83. massive personal differences caused a final split after the October 83 show. unfortunately we never did record about a dozen newer songs that we had talked about as a putative album. there was a lot more diversity to this batch of tunes. mostly they clocked in well over a minute and had a broader range of styles and influences. "sleeve" is the only one ever recorded, not a good example though since it fits right in with the "hassibah"-era material.
after the band struck the final reef, steve and myself did a lot of basement four-track stuff for about a year, later released on cassette as "a harvest of seaweed". i formed sludge confrontations with john london from jerk ward in may of 84, and since then i've played in mission of Christ (86-87), a couple basement bands, and in 1991 cofounded mexican power authority, by far the longest-lived and most prolific band i've ever been part of. steve cofounded show business giants with tom holliston, but hasn't been musically active since, steve and his wife cindy just had a son this past summer. i've had no personal contact with mario since...well, probably since i picked my amp up from his house back in fall 83.

This is posthumous release as the band didn't exist anymore when this was out and thanx to Jon Active this LP has seen the light of the day. I thought that the LP was self-titled, but I've found out on the net that this is it's the name. Enjoy.

Antidote "One Does Not Sell The Earth Upon Which The People Walk" 7"

Here's yet another anarcho punk post.
This time it's that famous The Ex/Chumbawamba collaboration. This bootleg followed soon after their "Destroy Fascism!" 7" in 1986 on Loony Tunes Records which is the only official release of theirs. Anyway, this 7" has 11 tracks that are under one minute long and it sounds like some tape they made in the practice room (it has that tape hum) and the sound is worse than on the official 7", but it's good nonetheless. And they say nothing good comes from bootlegging.

Contramenation s/t 7"

Contramenation were German anarcho punk band influenced with the UK bands from the 80s and they sound a bit "Subhumansish" to me. They sing in english because their singer is english (if I got it right, because that's written in german) and he writes the lyrics. It's funny to see that strong anti-CD attitude today, but I havent had CD player until '97 too. I think that this is their first record and it has one of my favourite record covers. Don't you just wanna slap this cop's face? I know I do.

Stencil Punks

Just stumbled across this site that offers thousands of stencils for you to do whattafuckever you want with them. It has bands stuff, political... it also has FAQ and "how to's" for printing it out and making t-shirts. It has it all. This surely brings back memories of some of my old t-shirts.
D.I.Y. or don't do it. Or go to the shop. Or order it from a distro. Whatever. Check it out.

Gout s/t 7"

This 7" was misplaced/lost somewhere in my record collection and now it popped out after quite a lot of years. It's not my cup of tea, but since the only thing that I've managed to google out about them is this I thought maybe it could be kind of rare and somebody was looking for this, so...
Thanx to Irishdave for filling in and making this post more than just a link. I'll just copy/paste what he wrote:
"I don't know much but here goes:
Gout were from my home town of Kilkenny and they started around then of 89 / begining of 1990. When I left Kilkenny it was for a few reasons but a crap music scen was one of them. Gout hadn't played at that time, but as they were more interested in the Dischord/ Fugazi D.I.Y. scene, while I was totally into the anarcho scene (and very narrow minded in musical terms) our paths never crossed. They were very good at getting bands to start playing in Kilkenny, Fugazi being one of them. They did two demos that I know of, and that single. I have been trying to find the members myself for a while, but drew a blank, as anyone interesting tends to leave Kilkenny asap."

Patareni "Back To The Roots" LP

As this is 100th post here on Röckin' Nöiz I wanted to put something really special to me.
Patareni are legends and pride of my town Zagreb and they've been delivering their punk röckin' grindcore to generations of punks. They had quite a lot of releases (you can see a partial discography here) and just a few gigs (less than 20 I think) since early 80s when they formed. They were one of the grindcore pioneers and they did their grind with a lot of different musical influences and quite a lot of humour (unfortunately for people outside of ex-Yu those funny songs are all in Croatian and though unundersandable). I remember Dave Shadow from Dregs Of Humanity buying their "Debilana Sessions" 7" and we were telling him that there is almost no music, just idiotic (not in the bad way) joking on Peel Sessions in Croatian and that didn't made no difference because that were Patareni.
On this release from 1996 we have recordings from '88, '90 and '93. Some of the songs are medleys and consist of dosen of songs. In the medleys (first two songs) I've put the names of the included songs in lyrics tag. The sound varies from song to song i.e. the songs from '93 sound metal while the music in the song "Vi Ste Mi Dužni Za Život" is New Age by Blitz with grinding vocals. They never fitted in some "classic grindcore" mould. On the cover are mentioned two more songs from '88 (Falšanja Kol'ko'š Medley and Sajkunda/Something Bezveze), but are not on the record which is strange since there was enough space - the first side lasts 5 and the other 'round 14 minutes. Anyway, enjoy this as I have all these years.
P.S. You can find some Patareni videos on YouTube too.

Nula/Enough! split 10"

This was requested by Danijel, so here it is.
This split is a result of Nula european tour in '97 whose Polish part they did with Enough!.
Nula is Croatian anarcho hardcore punk band that marked nineties punk scene here (and basically in all ex-Yugoslavia). In 1994 they released 90 minute tape accompanied with the fanzine (you can find it here) of angry political music while the war was still a reality here (strange, but there wasn't d-beat bands outburst - hence the war). At that time the scene was pretty much dead. After the release of that tape the whole scene seemed to become alive with bands and zines popping up everywhere and that was really the golden age (in my opinion) of the ex-Yu scene. I could write alot more about them, but let's focus on this release. Here they offer 6 live songs recorded in Rostock on that tour with the last one being cover of Scuffy Dogs, the band from Slovenia whose drummer Sašo was driving the van and singing this song on tour.
Enough! are from Poland and they play slow and heavy crust with downtuned guitars that give them that Dystopia feeling. They also offer 6 of their songs (first three are melting one into another). The stuff on this split is from their 1st tape called "Darkside" that was only available in Poland. At the time of recording they had male and female vocalists (later just male).
The thing with this record is that the bands wanted to make a little reminder of the tour and also to put some of their "older" stuff on vinyl.

Bagger/Lieselotte split LP

This split brings two excellent bands from Switzerland. Bagger from Biel are crust with fe/male vocals sung in German and Lieselotte from Geneve are more of grinding crust with a touch of death metal and sludge sung in English, French and Spanish. I really cannot decide which one is better because both bands kick some serious ass.
While I don't know much about Lieselotte I was lucky enough to watch Bagger live and that was a gig to remember. Their shows were much more than just music. They had a total apocalyptic performance including a web in front of the stage crawled with creepy alienesque creatures, fire and what not else including a projections from the truck outside the show. That show was one truly unique experience and I hope that it is available somewhere in video format. Here you can see just a tiny bit from their shows.
Today these two bands' members are working as well known crusties called Pack. Let it rip.
Oh, yes. I thought I could mention that Bagger side of the LP is played from the inside out, so if you have automatic tonearm on your turntable it would be really annoying trying to play it from the beginning.
