HCBD033 - Bootbeast Carnival

BOOTBEAST CARNIVAL | Rehearsal Tapes | 198?

This is a donation from my dear friend Mawky of the now defunct JANITORS OF ANARCHY (Phoenix, Az) - a rehearsal tape of BC. This time as a trio, with only vox, bass and drums - but still pretty enjoyable since BC was not the average run-of-the-mill Phoenix Underground attrocity.

While Part One has the songs we already know from their previous releases, it's the second part of the bunch which makes it more adventurous with all the unknown tracks. Maybe someone in the know who can fill in the gaps?

Hope you dig it, folks!

Neue Heimat!?

Metronome | 1982 | LP

Dass ausgerechnet diese LP bisher nicht als CD wieder aufgelegt worden ist, weiß wohl nur der Herr Purple Schulz allein. Der weigert sich nämlich hartnäckig dagegen. Dabei ist das ihre beste LP. Neben der typischen 80er Jahre Betroffenheitslyrik (Das Meer stirbt) findet man auch treffsichere Texte über das deutsche Wesen und andere Befindlichkeiten ("Am Himmel kreist ein Flugzeug, das Radio ist an, mein Nachbar wäscht sein Auto, da lässt er niemand ran" - Bombenstimmung). Musikalisch ohnehin über jeden Zweifel erhaben (Wolf Maahn hat's produziert), kommen die Jungs richtig zur Sache wie in Aloahee, oder schleichen umher wie im geheimnisvollen Typen in Trenchcoats. "Die Härte" macht auch nach dreißig Jahren immer noch viel Spaß - und das sollte man der interessierten Öffentlichkeit nicht vorenthalten.

+++

This is one of the best New German Wave albums. A tight band rocks the fudge out on tunes you can jump the walls to. Very tuneful, punchy and melodic. Still great!

Artless! Plugged!! Artless!!

The Only Label In The World | CD | 2003

Mykel Board. One of my favorite mad men out there! Really liked his columns in MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL back then and i always loved his band ARTLESS. This one here is kind of an anthology with extensive liner notes (one day i will get around to fix my scanner i am pretty sure) if you will with almost (!) everything these guys have recorded and released.
This is proto punk at its best, it's diverse, accidentally tuneful and always hits the mark. Those of you who have read his often controversial write-ups in MRR know what to expect  Mykel Board is one of the very few "punk artists" with an edge. And a very nice guy, too!

We interrupt this program

Peter Bellendir was the drummer of XMAL DEUTSCHLAND & EISENVATER (among others). Never cared much for goth but XMAL was always something special - his powerful drumming added some nice industrial feel to it.  

Rest in peace, Peter.

Sound Of Cities: Phoenix. Arizona

Placebo Records | 1985 | LP

One of my favorite 80's underground compilations on one of my favorite cultural spots ever: More Coffee For The Politicians is the third LP in a series of three (ha!) LP's dedicated to Phoenix Underground music. (The first two being This is Phoenix Not The Circle Jerks and Amuck - which i am about to post if there is any more interest in these...!) Great song by J.F.A. (all instrumental), which is followed by an eerie MIGHTY SPHINCTER track, a very interesting DUKE ELLINGTON version of Caravan by the SUN CITY GIRLS, the totally out-there BOOTBEAST CARNIVAL kind of song and the introspective Icons by KILL EVERYONE, which was led by the wonderful Elaine DiFalco of ALMIGHTY SPHINCTER and CAVEMAN SHOESTORE (only to name a few.) These songs make up for some more mediocre stuff crammed onto this otherwise superb disc.

As we can see, there was always more to it than those MEAT PUPPETS (another great sun-damaged unit!) -- so to make a short story long - i am going to post more heavy shit by my favorites BOOTBEAST (CARNIVAL), JOKE FLOWERS, OUR NEIGHBORS SUCK (ONS), HARVEST and more. It's mostly stuff you'll not find anywhere else on this god forsaken planet...

And if anyone of you goddamn hippies, squirrels and geeks have something more to offer (like any KILL EVERYONE --- or any other you-name-it-basement tapes) then give me a wink!

Tracklist:

1  -  J.F.A.  -  Julie's Song
2  -  Sun City Girls  -  Caravan
3  -  Mighty Sphincter  -  Furious Curse
4  -  ONS  -  Tip Toe Through My Two Lips
5  -  The Zany Guys  -  Ball Room Blitz
6  -  Bootbeast Carnival  -  Hung Up
7  -  Kill Everyone  -  Icons
8  -  Maybe Mental  -  Monks Hood
9  -  Joke Flowers  -  Dirty Hands
10  -  Keening  -  Just A Man
11  -  Harvest  -  Under Your Spell
12  -  Hellfire  -  Tombstone
13  -  Dirt Clods  -  Living On The Edge
14  -  Domino Theory  -  Comfortable Black Hole
15  -  Racer X  -  Jojoba Blues

Hardcore Power Music, Dude!!

Snake Rec. | CD | 1995

Die LP ist 1985 auf dem Mülleimer Label herausgekommen und ist bis heute einer der gelungensten Sampler überhaupt. Viele Exklusiv-Stücke von RAZZIA und INFERNO, aber die beste Band sind die Deadmolder KOMMANDO SCHWARZER FREITAG, die den NEUROTIC ARSEHOLES nicht unähnlich gewesen sind.

+++

1985 saw the release of this fine German punk compilation (this being the CD reissue) with a lot of crunchy, fast and melodic stuff. Best cuts go to KOMMANDO SCHWARZER FREITAG and MOTTEK. Still very cool!

01  -  Razzia  -  Unterwegs In Sachen Selbstmord
02  -  Ausbruch  -  Kämpf Um Dein Recht
03  -  Inferno  -  Thema S
04  -  Kommando Schwarzer Freitag  -  Den Nächsten Krieg Gewinnt Der Tod
05  -  Maniacs  -  Wir Haben Was Zu Sagen
06  -  Idiots  -  Samstag Nacht
07  -  Lustfinger  -  Bundespräsident
08  -  Schluckspechte  -  Alkoholkonsum
09  -  K.S.F.  -  Kommissar Winter
10  -  Inferno  -  Ein Tag Im Schatten
11  -  Maniacs  -  Weltkrieg
12  -  Ausbruch  -  Deutscher Eid
13  -  Tin Can Army  -  Verweigerung Total
