v.a. Go Ahead Make My Day – Smashing Odds Ness 2 LP

As can be deduced from the name (ignoring movies and presidents), this compilation was a) the follow-up to the Smashing Odds Ness and b) the second release on the Smashing Odds Ness label. What you can‘t quite deduce is that it was also the last one. Many of the bands on this 1989 compilation play late eighties thrash, with the mighty Bastard and the stenchy Asbestos definitely delivering the heaviest stuff. F.V.K., DONDON, Sic and Idora are among better known and more prolific bands on the comp, with Complete, Sicilian Blood and Sweats having fewer releases to their names.

And I have only one thing to say to the tax increasers…

Bastard – Wind Of Pain Compilation LP

I have no idea, whether Bastard chose their name in an hommage to Motörhead, but they sure are heavy! These guys were all members of other well known japanese hardcore bands (Gudon, Systematic Death, Judgement, D.O.N.D.O.N. Rocky & The Sweden, Tetsu Arei), and wrote one the most iconic songs of the whole genre: Misery. This is a bootleg compilation containing their Controled In The Frame 7″, the original Wind Of Pain 12″ and one track from the Triple Cross Counter compilation 7″.

What is misery for you?
