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.

Nevažna ispravka :) Na World class punk kaseti je zapravo Necropholia i pesma Žive mete,a oni su napisali da je to Distress :)
