V/A – Code Blue Cassette


A long time ago since I ripped a compilation. Wow, didn’t realize how much time it actually takes. I don’t complain. I do it for fun but realize I have to do it one more time once I get a better tape deck.

Here’s a classic USHC/Punk comp. that has been on my want list like forever. I don’t know if I manage to write about every band. You get classic tunes from classic acts like F.U.’s, Articles of Faith, Die Kreuzen, Naked Raygun, Husker Du etc. Among them the F.U.’s might be the least interesting and the highlight to me is Naked Rayguns-Only in America. Total smasher! Among the less classic acts but still quite known, I know many would argue about who is classic and not, White Flag really stands out. Awesome. When it comes to the more obscure ones Rights of the Accused is on the top. The only band that don’t fits me on this superb comp is Flesh Columns.

Many of you would like to have this as a single .zip file. Sorry. I don’t do that for some reasons: 1. It would overload the server 2. Indexing on search engines gets fucked up.

Beyond The Implode – 11th Hour Breakdown E.P. 7″


A rather new discovery for me. I feel in love immediately. Stumbled upon a copy and nabbed it. And here it is for you to enjoy though I doubt many of you will appreciate it. Gritty amateurish and monotonous post-punk with great vocals. 11th Hour… and Look Back… is what hits the sweet spots for me. This was the Beyond the Implodes second 7inch and pressed in a vast quantity of 250 copies. Thanks to Dizzy/Detour/Bored Teenagers you can read a bit more about ‘em here:

Karanteeni – Sid Vicious 7″


First 7″  from Karanteeni had a Sex Pistols cover while this one, their second, had a song about that band’s second bass player. Their third 7″ had a Sham 69 cover.

Now let’s see if the comment section will be longer than this text, considering how many comments Nirvana got. Up yours!

Menace – I Need Nothin 7″


I’ll take the easy way out and post a classic. I posted Screwed Up a couple of months ago and that is hands down a top 10 7″(among 100 other Top 10 punk 7″‘s). I Need Nothing is anthemic and great but I prefer the Electrocutioner and I think it’s cause the vocals are a bit more dominant and Morgan Websters snarling voice is a voice to love.

Nirvana – Kielletyt leikit/Kuljen kaupungilla 7″


In Suomi punk was a big thing and lots of bands had long and fruitful careers with multiple releases in the late 70’s and in suprisingly many cases a long way into the 80’s. The music school kids from Nirvana however only did this 7″ in 1980, then had a long pause before they moved to the US and released a cover of Shocking Blue’s Love Buzz in 1988 which created a buzz (get it?) and made it big in 1991. Musically they didn’t change much although this first release might be a bit too slick compared to their later releases, but the songs are ace despite the somewhat lame early 80’s production with too many keyboard fills and over dubs.

By the way, Ramones on paska!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
