Skizophrenia! – This Fucking Skizophrenia! Still A Raped Ass 7′‘

„Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack!“ is the most sensible review I can come up with at the moment. If I were forced to try harder, I‘d say that Skizophrenia (exclamation mark!) are frantic as hell and definitely top Vendetta in their worship of Missbrukarna and E.A.T.E.R. It has to be said though that there’s not much Anti Cimex in their sound, (and if so it is definitely more Jordens Undergång than Victims Of A Bombraid), as Skizophrenia are not nearly as blunt and Yu’s screams are nowhere near Jonsson’s growls.

Again: „Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack! Attack!“

The Execute – Spend Your Money LP

This LP is a boot of the first releases by The Execute: the S/T flexi 7“, Hard Core Temptation 7“, Criminal Flowers 7“, plus the compilation tracks off Great Punk Hits and the legendary international P.E.A.C.E./War benefit compilation. As you might see once should you download it, the LP is rich in bootleggy goodness: a simple silkscreened front cover, no artwork on the back cover, and a single-side insert, that’s it. The title is an allusion to the official compilation album „Save Your Money“ (which ironically is pretty expensive…), the cover is also simplified version of that LP’s artwork.

Note the great choice of fonts.

v.a. Starving Dog Eats Master

Starving Dog Eats Master, released in 1991 on Bloodsucker records, another classic japanese compilation. Death Side (some of their best tracks on this album) and Nightmare need no further introduction, and Crück are another true gem (especially considering they only ever released compilation tracks). Kathabuta only released a 2×7“ flexi and a tape beside this, Warhead Junk had a split release with Gudon, and Bandit released two albums in the early nineties.

Get it while it’s hot!

Sadie Sads – Box With Little Doll 12“

First things first: the title of this release should be Box Without Little Doll. There’s no little doll. What’s not (really) there either, is songs in the every-day meaning of the word. Just like Id on Angora, there’s avantgarde sound scapes, Birthday Party‘esque aural torture, singer Sad’s wailing and warbling, simple percussion behind repetitive, chorus-laden bass lines and -what Peter Hook might call- economic guitar playing.
Though there’s no doll (why not?!), these two 12“es from 1985 do come in a box with all kinds of extras, including an unrecognisable blob on a slide. No idea what it is.

Maybe THAT‘ is the little doll?

Narumi & The Misters – Groovin‘ Queen And Fridnes 12“

After Gas split up singer Narumi went on to play in Narumi & The Misters. This 12“ from 1988 was to be their second and last release (compilation tracks aside). The music is definitely no longer the hardcore of the early or the darker/melodic punk of the later Gas. The Misters were more of a rock‘n'roll group, and the music is pretty upbeat in places.

The spelilgn!

Daston – Plow Through Now 7“

This 7“ from 1998 seems to be the only vinyl release of Daston aside from their split 7“ with the mighty Gouka. These songs here are less noisy, atonal and frantic than the ones on the split, there are even some primitive melodies creeping in. Here they kind of remind me of a slower D.S.B.

Keep up on attack!
