SYDKRAFT - s/t LP 1979

Next request now: Before Sydkraft release their only album they shot the 7Inch Surfway 1978 as small tidbit out and both tracks decorate the album with eleven more lost nuggets and the range goes from powerpop to reggae and snotty punkrock numbers. Not the typical KBD style, rather highly variable and I must confess a few fillers are also there but that's okay. I guess the band's lifetime was short and not represented on compilations, that says a lot. Massproduktion changed this 2015 with the ingenious Vägra Raggarna Benzin Vol.3 & 4 records and both have a lot more to offer from the Swedish provinceNot a bad record, but even no burner.

COCKS IN STAINED SATIN - Tune In Turn On...Drop Out 1989

Time for a few requests and I know, I'm late. First the last album, via 1st Records, by my favorite Frankfurter Cocks In Stained Satin and this one is full of fourteen melodious funny bubble gums, I can tell they were very popular in the 80s with their sympathetic performances. I will not write much because all albums available on wdthtc and so you don't have to search long just click TUNE IN and enjoy all Cocks nuggets, infos + links. I just want to mention that they have wrongly earned too little attention. Well, just stay as insider and it doesn't always have to be well-known.

THE EARS - Leap For Lunch 7'' 1980

Debut self-released 7Inch by this Melbourne four piece: Sam (vocals), Michael (guitars), Cathy (bass) and Charles (drums), The Ears are born 1979 and this is a nice new wave record with two decent goodies. Bandcamp says: The legendary Melbourne post-punk band of the early 80s - on which the film 'Dogs in Space' was based (and in which lead singer Sam Sejavka was played by Michael Hutchence of INXS) have exhumed themselves from an early grave and are realising their frightening potential for madness, whimsy and mind-destroying rock. The Ears were a prominent band in Austalia’s seminal underground scene of the late seventies/early eighties. They are represented on a couple of compilations I unfortunately don't know, sounds good to you?

JESTERS - Hillbilly Bop 7'' 1981

From Newcastle to Berlin with another rare record by Rockabilly's Jesters, a five piece combo; in detail: Richie (vox), Detlef (bass), Mickey (lead guitar), Sheeby (guitars) and Leroy (drums) and this little two-sided cracker was released on Blue Moon Records and offers hearty 50's sound pleasure, rough and unpolished from the cellars of the Führerbunker. They recorded an album but was never released, maybe financial reasons or because the band broke up in 1981. Unfortunately, there is no further information available about this band in the net and so this remains to be their secret. But luckily Rotten Totten Records released a 10'' in a limited edition of 200 copies with all their recordings '79-'82 and it's nowadays fuckin' rare. If anyone could send a copy this would be great. Now let the wild cats out and turn the knobs to maximum.

WARFARE - Total Death EP 1985

I'm ripping at the moment the first solo album by Evo which is called Warfare and was released via High Roller Records and it's a nice appearance and Evo is probably better known to you as drummer/singer of the Newcastle Metalpunx Warfare, which made in the 80's some great records on Neat Records and that's why I choose this little four track EP as next post. What should I tell you? I always like to remember a festival with four bands in a gym in Frankfurt 1986 and it was fantastic, Warfare was the last act and thirty people were left, simply the real Hardcores. The band threw cucumber juice and the pogo usually ended up on the ass, I never experienced anything like that and I was young and enjoyed it very much. Those who were there at the time can remember what I'm talking about; yes yes, the good old days. Don't miss the Crescendo Of Reflections compilation with old songs in a new dress ('91). And now off to the weekend!


Completely new for me is this band which originally formed in Sète 1985 as Manchakou by Tierry Tannières (ex-Joli Garçon and Fall Of Saigon), Jacques Séris (ex-Joli Garçon), Freddie Bonetti and Marc Duran (both ex-Phulacontarques), and they moved to London in 1986; three years later changed moniker in Electric Manchakou after Freddie Bonetti left the band; in 1990 Pippo and Romano Pasquini of The A-10 joined Electric Manchakou, disbanded in 1991. They released three 7Inches and two albums to my knowledge. Contained in this file all crazy's from the EP's plus a few dynamic garage hellriders from the '93 slab - Kick Out The Fuzz Motherfuckers!!!!

MASSMEDIA - Das Jazz 7'' + EP-EP-EP 1979

YEAH!!it's done, the SGE is in the cup final in Berlin vs fucking FCB and that will be extremely difficult to win. Anyway, next post: Massmedia was a classic punk band from Sundsvall/Västernorrland who recorded their first EP during Christmas 1978 at Torkhold, a bomb shelter @ Västermalms gymnasium which was also used for punk gigs in Sundsvall. In February 1979 they released their first 7Inch on their own label Massproduktion in a print run of 492 numbered copies and is now regarded as a fuckin' collector's item, even before they recorded the first EP Das Jazz/Jag Vill Inget on a memorable night in the damp rehearsal room togehter with Jan Zachrisson from Diestinct and still one of the most untamed Swedish records. The EP-EP-EP 7Inch follows this year and in 1980 comes the compilation EP with Massmedia, Vacum and Förbjudna Ljud called Sundsvallspunk Vol.1 out. After the delays that hit Sundsvallspunk EP & the Vacum EP they discovered the advantages of pressing in Sweden and under a few months a lot of local punk band released their debut slabs on Massproduktion. The last EP Ingen Hets (listen!) and their only full length Sista Ackordet (ca. 800 copies) were also released in 1980. Musically wild, chaotic, rough & pure impact. Classic Stuff!!

C.O.D. - Who Needs The Moon When We Got The Stars? EP 1986

Well, the match is a bit uninspired and before I fall asleep we meet Blacky (vocals), Dieter (bass), Frank (guitars) and Klaus (drums): C.O.D. (no idea what this means) a short-lived combo from Nuremberg and I guess this is their first record, released via Herbe Scherbe in a hand numbered limited edition, with four rough catchy candles which reflect the typical 80s sound. A second EP was recorded, also limited but never heard, maybe anyone can sent it to me? More signs of life are on the Nuremberga In Vertebris ('87) and Lokale Leidenschaften Vol.I ('88) compilations and that's all. If you more interested in music from this region take a look @ FrankenPunk and find your band.


DIE TOTEN HOSEN - Pushed Again EP 1998

Before I pay full attention to the DFB Cup semi-final in Gelsenkirchen a fine release by Die Toten Hosen from Düsseldorf. I don't think I must say much about this five gentlemen. The legend start as ZK in 1978 in its three-year life span, two 7Inches and three albums were published. In 1982 Campino, Andreas von Holst and the roadie Andreas Meurer founded then the Hosen. They released sixteen studio albums by May 2017, many 7Inches and are one of the most successful bands in Germoney. Personally, I like their first three albums because they are rougher/crazier and rarely played on Radio or TV. Also songs were written in English and Pushed Again is one of them and here I like them very much, two in English, two in German and for the Australian fans was create 1999 the album Crash-Landing with sixteen nuggets. I'm not the band's big fan but sometimes they kick out a burner. Enough blah blah, listen and watch soccer!

OSLO XI - Morgen Stemning EP 1980

Another classic EP from a band I can't find no further info but I guess they're from Oslo and this is their debut via Blått Øre Music and it's a nice one. Not so punky as the other raw & killer bands from this country but all four songs have a solid heavy rocking tempo, all sung in native norwegian so what more can you expect? - Puhhh, I'm still tired and in three hours starts my day in the office with strenuous people, Yippieh.. - In 1982 they released an album called Stikk Finger'n I Jorda and no compilation injections. So get this little piece of history and start the download.
