My precious.. Fifth album from Lightsabres, this time released by DHU Records (favourite artist & one of the best labels there is). Made a deal with myself about six years ago when Lightsabres debut album was released that I’ll buy everything this artist will ever release (Demons was so brilliant, and still is). Love these garage/stoner/grunge/fuzzy/lo-fi albums John Strömshed keeps recording. Damn this latest sounds as great as all previous albums (got this on cassette version too). Even though I […]
Never heard about this band? Don’t worry, me neither until I read a review of this (their second) album from Sludgelord some weeks ago. Damn-shit-hell this album is kicking my fat ass totally. This sounds dirty, dangerous and that makes it beautiful. Mixture of sludge, stoner, metal. punk etc. and I’m really enjoying this record. Worth to check out if you haven’t already done that. I have no clue about limitation of this vinyl release but so what, really hope […]
These I bought for myself as a christmas present. As you can see all three albums are represses, I can’t afford to buy original copies (surprise). I have this difficult relationship with Neuosis just because there’s one album above all (in my opinion) and that’s “The Eye Of Every Storm”. Yeah, I have purchased all their albums after that release but this particular album is a sort of cornerstone, or something, to me. Well, now it’s time (at last) to get little more […]
Haa, last Saturday I took a train to my previous home town and visited the local second-hand record store just to check out their selection. After some digging I found this one, a record that I sold to this same store about four years ago! Hah, I bought it back immediately. After all this was one of those “grunge” bands I crew up with. Can’t even understand that this record was released 26 years ago.. Great one, great band. […]
Got this one from The Flenser few days ago. I’m smiling, just because this album is totally insane. Noise, industrial, samples, hardcore.. you name it. I can’t help myself but some distant way this reminds me of Johnny Violent and his awesome album “Shocker”. Anyways, this is refreshing album in every possible way. If you want to blow your brains away with music, try this one. This colored version is limited to 250 copies but first hundred copies came with […]
Woah! I just listened this album through and what a haunting beauty this is! This is the reason why I still keep on collecting records (even though I have been slowing down lately just because of that Terra Tenebrosa’s shipping fiasko few weeks ago). This double album arrived from Poland in sturdy mailer, in perfect condition. Stara Rzeka (as far as I know) is a one-man band of Polish Jakub Ziolek. He is blending different genres successfully in his music; ambient, […]
Pigs and their perfectly titled album, “You Ruin Everything”. This album has been on my “Most Wanted” list for ages and few weeks ago I found a copy via Discogs and luckily it also arrived in perfect condition. This band goes to the same category as Jesus Lizard & Shellac when talking about noise-rock bands. I have been listening so much stoner/sludge records lately so this is like refreshing wind, blowing from ear to ear. This colorway is from the […]
It’s all about the hornss.. Doesn’t this package look wonderful? Latest album from HORNSS, released by STB Records. Seems like a marriage made in heaven. Love this album, it’s raw, it’s brutal and it freaking rocks! Doomed-desert-stoner-rocking-metal must be the best way to describe this one and listening to it makes me want to dance around the house reckless and bang my head against things that comes on my way. And the package itself, pure STB quality once again, damn […]
This is the curse of the record collector / music hedonist. Yes, I have already that deluxe-numbered-colored version of this album but I couldn’t resist purchasing this test pressing last week.. Three copies came available via artist’s own BandCamp site last week and I was one of those lucky three (I missed the first round when this album was released). All four records from Lightsabres are pure diamonds, so I decided to support this artist once again. Awesome record, just keep […]
This latest full-length by Lightsabres came earlier this week from HeviSike Records. What can I say? This swedish artist puts out a new record every year and still I haven’t got enough of his dirty, hazy, lo-fi garage/stoner/punk/rock. This is his 4th album and I hope that he will keep these coming. Once a fan, always a fan. This deluxe version on “sea blue transparent” vinyl is limited to 50 copies (including a hand-numbered art print). Then there are these […]
Ragana and their second full-length, Wash Away. I just couldn’t resist purchasing this album after listening that first song from this album via BandCamp. Yeah, this two-piece perform a beautiful mixture of blackened metal, crust, doom, punk, sludge etc. All these elements are combined perfectly here and the result is a damn good album. I like this one a lot (that doesn’t mean that you have to do so), it’s simultaneously fragile & cruel. Limited to 500 copies and available via their BandCamp […]
This one I found today morning while I was visiting the flea market not far from home. Occasionally I love to do some crate digging even though nowadays it’s nearly impossible to find anything for reasonable prize tag on it. Today I found something interesting, “The Last Day” from Angry Johnny And The Snots. I have been a fan of Angry Johnny for years now and have some of his stuff on CD format but nothing on vinyl, until today. […]
Got this beauty yesterday (poster came 3 days earlier). Latest full-length from this Swedish garage-stoner-punk-rock dude, John Strömshed. Few years ago I heard his debut album “Demons” and I had to get the record immediately. I just love these hazy-fuzzy-garage tunes. Now, three albums later I’m still a great fan of his music and will always be. This album is surprisingly sold out from both sources, STB records and from the artist himself. I had a chance to order the TP […]
yeah, I know that I have quite strange taste when it comes to music. This album ,Viper Smoke by Taman Shud has taken total control of my body (via headphones) last few days. I don’t even know what to call this kind of music but on their BandCamp site they call themselves as a necro-psych band.. so be it.and surprisingly I love this record. Psychedelic stoner/garage/punk, just listen for yourself. Available for those who are interested via their BandCamp page. […]
This came yesterday along with that The Phuss twelve-inch. I did not order this and I was little confused so I decided to email Magnetic Eye Records about mistakenly shipped item, actually I secretly hoped that there’s a reason for this.. And there was, Mike from MER mailed back saying that this 10 inch is too good not to share and I totally agree. This little one is filled with hardcore, metal & punk. Not bad at all! I really […]
Damn, this came nearly too fast,,, Hell Yes and thanks for this one goes to STB Records (for recommending this, I had no idea of this new release). This is my second vinyl from this artist and once again I’m smiling, this is awesome garage/sludge/punk/Lo-Fi/stoner album, like previous album was/still is. Recommended one, limited to 100 copies on opaque red vinyl and if you really want a copy, act fast. Available from his BandCamp site. — — This came packaged […]
One thing I love about BandCamp is that you get noticed every time when someone you follow purchase some records. Once again I have to thank retter for purchasing awesome releases.. And about this little lathe cut seven-inch (limited to 50 copies and surprisingly sold out now), it’s lovely folk-blues-punk-soul three-piece as described on his BandCamp page. What can I say, powerful & emotional release. And I’m really happy that I managed to grab a copy. —
I got this one today, bought it from Ebay few weeks ago. Strange thing is that this was still sealed, in mint condition and cost me £14.36 shipping cost included. Not bad deal at all considering that this was released about 12 years ago and I haven’t seen any copies of this one in years. I know that this band is/was very hard one to chew for some HC fans. I do not mind about those “poser” talks because I […]
I’m was just going through my seven-inch collection and I found this. Oh, treasures from the past, those good old days. Chrome Cranks presenting their awesome seven-inch, “Way-out Lover”. This recording has a huge sentimental value for me. Good old straight Garage-Surf-Rock’n’Roll. I should hunt down some of their long plays as well.. —
Oh, it’s nice to pay a visit to grandma. Earlier today I went to local record store hunting some treasures.. Well, it was not that glorious experience but I did find this weird little seven-inch from Dr. Gunni (this guy is from Iceland so it’s obvious that this 7″ is filled with some strange tunes). This is his first EP and released by Bad Vugum (strange underground record label from Finland) and I’m glad that I got this now, finally. […]
Just another record from the past. Been hunting this down years (well, not that active though). Awesome record from this trio, Stuart Gray (Lubricated Goat etc.), Kat Bjelland (Babes In Toyland) and Russel Simins (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion). What else can one ask. Recommended and it’s finally mine… mine… uuh.
Uuh.. This one came earlier this week. Utterly awesome experimental/avantgarde/punk/noise debut full length from Keuhkot. This artist is one of his kind. Album was released by Finnish underground label Bad Vugum and as far as I know, there are very limited quantity of this record floating around. I’m still searching the first seven-inch from this artist (in reasonable prize). This kind of stuff I used to listen in my teenage years :) And here is what this artist is about […]
Got this one today, been looking for a copy on vinyl couple of years (not that intensively though). Few weeks ago spotted one copy from Discogs for reasonable prize. This is quite impressive mixture of blues, rockabilly, punk, polka, country etc. I’m happy.
Good rock ‘n’ roll record in the spirit of Hellacopters etc. This brings a smile to my face every time I listen to this lovely album. This is pure “Summer Soundtrack”. No idea of limitation but according to Discogs this is tour edition of this record, limited to 200 copies… hmm.. never been on their gig and yet I have this. Anyways, available for reasonable prize (black and blue versions) at ShirtKiller. Highly recommended if you like your rock ‘n’ roll […]
Pre-ordered this one months ago and today it came, with nice little flag?! :D hmmm.. what can I say about this album.. Nice record but at this time I feel that this is not my cup of tea (been listening too much experimental stuff lately), with time and few more rounds on my turntable should turn my head back to the straight path. Love this flag, it brought back memories from my childhood and my room covered with W.A.S.P. and […]
This underground artist from Finland has always amazed me. Love his little 7″ records and I have been trying to collect all his vinyl releases (missing few of those). I got this from my dear old friend. Availability depends on Discogs/Ebay nowadays. I couldn’t find any clips from this release but here’s something to show you the way :)
Old treasure from my record rack. Bad Vugum released this twisted seven-inch nearly 20 years ago. Gunni, from Island, mixing industrial/electronic/punk to unique wall of sound. Copies of this can be found at least from Discogs or maybe from Ebay. There’s no clips from this EP, but here’s some sample from youtube what this stuff is like.
Well, what can I say? Really like this band. At first I bought their latest album “Powers Of Horror” and then I had to buy this one. Don’t exactly now is this noise, black metal or what but I really dig this. This is limited to 500 copies and you can purchase this for example from Kreation Records.
Interesting Finnish band. Jussi Lehtisalo from Circle, Samae Koskinen (pop/rock/singer/songwriter), Jukka Kröger and Aaron Turner get together and here is the result. Interesting hardcore/Punk album. No idea about limitation (Hydra Head release), but this should be available from here and there. For example Split Cranium Bandcamp page.
Great album, great band. Is this Crust, Crustcore, D-beat, Hardcore?? Who knows and in the end even cares! I will carry this band with me till the end of my days. This record gave me strength in my deepest days and this will always be in my Top 10! Always! Available, well this should be available from every good record store around.
I bought this record about four years ago and I still like it that much I wont sell it. This is some kind of mixture hardcore and metal, maybe some punk in it. Nice disc. Limited to 1000 copies, 700 copies on black vinyl with silver splatter and 300 on silver/black vinyl. Available from Suburban Home Records.
Four years ago I bought this from their gig. Great band this totally was. Been enjoying this album ever since. Relapse pressed 1000 copies of this record; 100 on clear, 400 on white with black splatter and 500 on red vinyl with black haze. Disfear Records has bee pressing this ever since so there should be plenty of copies floating around if you don’t already have this Swedish treasure :)
Damn, this album sounds so evil.. Surprisingly these guys come from Norway. Saw their video on Youtube more than year ago and I was sold. Weird blend of black metal,punk and experimental noise rock. Nice! You can purchase this from Norman Records, if you like.
Single from one of the best bands in Finnish music scene as I know. Radiopuhelimet has always been those Finnish bands I like. This treasure was bought from second-hand record store when I was visiting my mom (visiting home is excellent excuse to visit local second-hand stores and find some treasures like this) :)
As I am a huge fan of Finnish record label Bad Vugum, I bought this one today from second-hand record store also. This is first release of Bad Vugum and surprisingly awesome release from one of my favourite band, Radiopuhelimet! Aaaaaarrgghhh..
I have been always huge fan of Finnish underground and this 7″ is great one. Featuring Mauri Antero Numminen, M.A.N. Numminen has been around from 1960’s and this gentleman is has great impact on Finnish music and literature. Larry And The Lefthanded are honored to have him on this great record. Awesome!
As far as I know this is J.M.K.E.’s first release on vinyl and the year was 1989. Released by Finnish record label Stupido Twins and actually this was their first release also. I was angry teenager when this came out and surprise this hit very hard! I linked video of “Tere Perestroikka” earlier when I wrote about J.M.K.E. album “Kylmälle Maalle” so now I link to song ” Lahendus on Kaos”
There are 1000 red copies of this record floating around, I bought mine from local record store and I haven’t seen another copy of this record anywhere. Punk record, or more likely hardcore band with some strange grindcore influences. Nice. If you can find this somewhere, buy it immediately!
