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.

Great political hardcore punk band from Karlsruhe, Germany.

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:

Tromatism 7" was among first vinyl rips on this blog and now it's time to return to them again. You can find more about the band in previous post. 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.

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.

This is Contramenation's second 7" and it follows in the same fashion as previous. They also had split 7" with Entre Vandals from Barcelona and that's about all that I know about them (which is a shame since I liked them a lot).

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.

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.

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."

Since I've mentioned Sašo, the ex-drummer of Scuffy Dogs two posts ago I've decided to put the second MITS 7" since he played there when he left Scuffy Dogs. Someone filled more info on them in the last MITS post.

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.

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.
