HCBD063: JFA - Untitled & Mad Garden (flac)

Another classic group from Phoenix, Az: JFA. Singer Brian Brannon still sounds like Frank Sinatra on rabies but that band played some tight version of sun-damaged hard core. Two great releases on one CD from this band of skaters.

PS: The song ABA is a mish-mash of David Bowie's "Andy Warhol" and THE DAMNED's "Teenage Dream". ABA stands for Anita Bryant's Army.

HCBD062: Eidolon - Sanctuary

Short-lived (1991 - 94) band from Boston, MA. Featuring Vic Bondi on guitars and backing vocals (no lead this time) and Ross Stevenson of GRAVEL.  Before emo became emo - if you know what i mean...

HCBD061: Kaaos & Terveet Kädet - So Much Fun

What a quality release from these two seminal finnish hardcore bands looked like when it wasn't released on the german dumpster record label ROCK-O-RAMA: KAAOS and fellow countrymen, TERVEET KÄDET on the german WEIRD SYSTEM record label. From 1984.

1985 saw the release of "Kiss Me Good bye" by Münster-based outfit R.A.F.GIER. This, their second album was issued on the Starving Missile record label run by Mike Just. The group later called it a day and went on to record for Glitterhouse Records under the name SUBMENTALS.

HCBD048: Hass - ... allein genügt nicht mehr

It's one of those bands from back when who still matter: HASS. They've formed in 1978 and besides a relatively short hiatus, are still running. This is their first, their debut album and a CD rip, not the vinyl. In case you dug the seminal Soundtracks Zum Untergang compilation album, you'll love this.

HCBD046 - Daily Terror - Durchbruch

WDM stated on his blog that "I can only recommend to buy their first two albums wherever you find a copy. Both are milestones!!" when he was talking DAILY TERROR's two first LP's. This is true but i'd like to point you, the valued listener, to their third LP, Durchbruch. It's not as punky as their previous efforts, but still manages to carry some good songs like Stony or Tanz der Teufel.

HCBD045: Ausbruch - Harte Zeiten

File under: unsung heroes. AUSBRUCH have been featured on some high-profile compilation albums like Hardcore Power Music Part 2 or We Don't Need Nuclear Force and did this great, melodic album back in 1985.
