Extinct Government – S/T 7″

Another one of those „incest bands“ whose members also play(ed) in a couple dozen more big and not so big bands. This late 90s release has simple, tight and somewhat catchy hardcore punk, kinda UK 82, with the emphasis (imo) being a little bit more on the punk side.

Get it!

v.a. One Shot One Kill LP

Of the bands on this compilation, the glue sniffers of Warhead are definitely the winners. Even their mid-tempo songs are absolutely over the top, manic hardcore insanity with a totally crazy singer. Extinct Government are another all-star group with members of Tetsu Arei, The Comes, Lipcream, Idora and Crück. They are more on the punky side of hardcore and even play a cover of No Desire by Switzerland’s Jack & The Rippers, which was originally released in 1979! On Side B Zone speed things up again with some fast and tight hardcore, which sadly doesn‘t reach the level of Warhead’s insanity. D.S.B. are a lot dirtier again, but I prefer their 7″es to these compilation tracks.

And since I am totally incompetent, I could not keep my scanner from screwing up the color of the front cover.
