Peace Of Mind/Anomie split LP

This record was a bit of surprise for me because both bands on it are not my usual cup of tea and I ended up loving both of 'em. Both bands were quite "soft" for my taste back then and Anomie were of the emo bunch which I never could fully digest, but this record led me to buying two more LPs and an 7" of P.O.M. and unfortunately only one 7" by Anomie. I cannot rationally explain why I love both of these bands, but if you ever get a chance to buy something by them I cannot recommend it enough.
You can notice in the tracklist that two of the songs are done by AnomiePeaceOfMind which was supposed to be collaboration of both bands, but ended up only with Anomie people and Jobst from P.O.M. due to other bandmates not being able to make it. Also the song "I Want My Life (And I'll Get It!)" is labeled "Disconcience" in the booklet if this means anything to anyone.

New blog to check out

I've forgot to give you a heads up for this blog for over a month now, but here you finally are.
"Totalno Sam Ljut" is blog done by Jule and Hoc from Pula, Croatia, which is, as I've already said before, my favourite town in Croatia when it comes to punk. Now, these two guys alone make quite a big chunk of bands that come from Pula in the last 20 years since they're quite hiperactive when it comes to making music. And now they've put their musical efforts for us to enjoy together with some of joke bands of theirs (or joke sinchronisations), but their "real" bands are true gems there. If you're familiar with some of their bands like Desinence Mortification, Bolesno Grinje, Anti Otpad etc. you know what to expect.
The blog name comes from the title of Anti Otpad's killer album and the blog itself is written in croatian, so if you're not from around here, you'll have to stick with some translator to read the band bios.

SexA "Jeane Jone Story" VHS

This has been in line to post for about a month now since I've stumbled upon it, and I just couldn't force myself to write one line, but finally here it is.
You can read more about this noise legends from my hometown in my previous SexA post, and this is rip of their VHS tape from 1991. It has three music videos, some live recordings from 1990 and band's spoken word.
I don't know who is the original creator of this VHS-rip, but thanks a lot to him/her for saving this document and making it available for generations to come.

Released: 1991
Label: Maydi Film & Video

I've re-uploaded it in fever files and you can get them here:
