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.

HCBD044: Wut/Rotting Carcass Split-LP

1985 saw the release of the collaboration of WUT & ROTTING CARCASS on this fine release. Though ROTTING CARCASS disbanded soon after, WUT evolved to a more raging hardcore outfit who'd later reincarnate as HOUSE OF SUFFERING after the break-up of WUT. Both sides have been reissued in one form or another, but this is the real thing.

HCBD042: Submissives - An Anvil Will Wear Out Many A Hammer


THE SUBMISSIVES were a notable B&D and S&M themed hardcore punk band from Portland, OR composed of three of the biggest names in the American hardcore scene. The bands members included Pig Champion (Tom Roberts) from POISON IDEA, Dave Dictor from MDC, and Steve Andrews from NAKED VIOLENCE. The songs were almost exclusively about men wanting to be dominated by women.

HCBD041: STOSSTRUPP - LP & 7"

One of the very few good releases on Rock-O-Rama Records, you know, the scrapyard disguised as a record label. Full-on, hard-driving hardcore Punk. If you like Austria's EXTREM or fellow country-men, BOSKOPS from Hannover, and missed out on these two records - here's your chance. You're welcome.

+++

Wenn das Wörtchen Wenn nicht wär' ... anderes Label (ein richtiges, und nicht so einen Schrottplatz) und bessere Produktion - STOSSTRUPP wären abgegangen wie Schmitz' Katz. Die Platten haben den richtigen drive und einen guten Sänger, manchmal reicht das schon.

HCBD040: Namenlos - Collection 1983-89

This is quite some document here about a female-fronted Punk band from stalinist German Democratic Republic, you know, one of those countries where you've been dragged away and jailed for dissent. Well anyway, the G.D.R. may be gone but at least the Punk virus still keeps spreading far and wide.

+++

NAMENLOS waren eine Berliner Punkband, 1983 bis 1987.

Gegründet Anfang 1983 von Frank Masch und "A-Micha" (= Michael Horschig, beide vorher in Punkband Alternative 13) zusammen mit Mita Schamal und Jana Schlosser (aus Halle). Teilnehmer am 1. Punkfestival der DDR (30. April 1983 in Halle).
Schon im August 1983 wurden alle Musiker im Rahmen einer gezielten "Zersetzungsaktion" des Ministeriums für Staatssicherheit verhaftet und
(außer der minderjährigen Schamal) zu Gefängnisstrafen verurteilt. Diese Ereignisse zogen DDR-weit Proteste in der Punk-Szene, sowie in oppositionellen und kirchlichen Kreisen nach sich. Nach Haftentlassung im September 1984 entstand die Gruppe erneut, diesmal mit Daniel Kaiser (ex- Planlos) am Bass, da Frank Masch nach kurzer Zeit erneut inhaftiert wurde. 1985 reisten Kaiser und Schamal aus der DDR aus, Schlosser und Horschig spielten weiter, u.a. mit Musikern von Virus X und Kein Talent. Im November 1987 kam es unter dem Bandnamen Kein Talent+Namenlos zu einer legendären kurzen Polen-Tournee mit den Wartburgs für Walter, Musik von beiden Bands erschien auf dem Tape-Sampler "We are the flowers in the red zone Vol.1". Nach dem endgültigen Split von Namenlos gründete Horschig Ende 1987 Der Bruch
(bestand bis 1989). Nach einer sehr erfolgreichen Neuveröffentlichung der alten Aufnahmen auf einer Höhnie Records LP im Jahre 2007 gab es eine Re-Union von Namenlos 2009, die schließlich sogar ein brandneues Album aufnahmen.

HCBD038: Keine Experimente II

Another hi-quality compilation from Weird System, it is Keine Experimente II courtesy of fellow blogger WDM - thanks a lot, pal!
As you can see from the front cover, the line-up is top notch, lots of big names and no let-downs here. One of the best german Punk/Hard core compilations you can think of -  Deutsche Wertarbeit at its best.
