Aburadako – S/T 7″

How the hell do you describe a band as weird, dark, nutty and wild as あぶらだこ? „Sometimes they play simple yet wild punkrock mixed with a little bit of hardcore, then again lots of post punk and atonal dirges, occasionally with Crass-style drumming and always with a shrieking singer?“ What the fuck’s that supposed to mean? How does is sound? Aaargh! Anyways, this is their awesome first flexi 7″ from 1983 on ADK records, and it’s the most accessible thing they ever did. Everything after their self-titled 12″ from 1984 is crazy avantgarde stuff that’s way too heavy for me…

Did I mention that the cover is too small for the 7″?

v.a. Great Punk Hits LP

Just what can you expect of a compilation named „Great Punk Hits“? Exactly what it says on the tin: GISM deliver two tracks of completely distorted, fuzzy and hissing metallic hardcore; The Execute songs are fast and melodic with some metal guitars (just like their first 7″); The Clay are great, primitive political hardcore punk; Aburadako are weird and awesome (sadly the record skips on one of their songs); G-Zet are simply great with one heavy hardcore track and one instrumental song; Laughin‘ Nose are forgettable as always.

Did I mention how great these punk hits are?
