EP | Split (2017)

This split is another rare gem of the Early Eighties Hardcore, Punk scene, very hard to find in a good condition and for a fair price, originally released in 1984 by the bands in a total D.I.Y. way, the way it should be, with all the imperfection and mistakes that makes a Punk release really likeable. All ten songs (five from each band) were recorded in novembre 1983 in the Oasis Studio, in Goriza, Italy.

 

UPSET NOISE were formed in Trieste, Italy in the Early Eighties and in their beginnings they played raw, pissed off and faster Hardcore, Punk in the vein of NEGAZIONE, INDIGESTI, DECLINO, ... . On this split EP the present their first recordings on vinyl, really raw, primitive and aggressive material, totally different from their Crossover, Thrashcore sound they played in their later years.

 

WARFARE ? are a very poltical Punk band formed in the year 1981 in Goriza, Italy, they didn´t play that typical frantic and fast italian Hardcore, Punk like many others of their country did at that time, WARFARE ? were more influenced by Anarcho Punk band like CRASS, CONFLICT, FLUX OF PINK INDIANS, ... . On this split EP the band plays more mid-tempo Anarcho Punk with dual male vocals and also some experimental parts were included into their sound.


The UPSET NOISE / WARFARE ? Split EP originally was released in the year 1984 by the bands themselves, this here will become the first legit re-release on the original 7" format.

NEBENWIRKUNG is one of the earliest Punk, Hardcore bands coming from (Northern) Germany, the city of Bremen to be exact, and they love to play their music in the raw and fast way. Saddly not as well-known as their big brothers from INFERNO or VORKRIEGSPHASE, but as well an essential part of the Eighties Punk scene in Germany (and the rest of the world). After their debut EP “Fick Den Papst” (1984), some might know it under the name “Gewalt” (the title “Fick Den Papst”, means "Fuck The Pope", was way too offensive at that time) and their split LP with DIS-ORGANIZED BUNCH OF FUCKERS (also from Germany, released on PÖBEL RECORDS, Germany in 1985). NEBENWIRKUNG released their second EP “Viel Zeit Bleibt uns Nicht Mehr” in the year 1987. The sound on this EP is way more metallic and a little bit more “complex” than their early material, no of course it´s not like the band became a melodic, sell-out clone, “Viel Zeit Bleibt Uns Nicht Mehr” offers three aggressive Punk, Eighties Hardcore trax and two of them are in the faster way. This EP is one of the best Later Eighties Hardcore, Punk releases coming from Germany and really worth to be re-released again.


"Viel Zeit Bleibt Uns Nicht Mehr" originally was released in the year 1987 by the band itself, this here will become the first legit re-release on the original 7" format.

NEBENWIRKUNG is a band from Bremen-Nord, Germany which was founded in june 1980, they were amongst the first german bands that played aggressive, brutal and pissed-off Hardcore, Punk, together with other acts like INFERNO, VORKRIEGSJUGEND, VORKRIEGSPHASE, BOSKOPS, BLUT + EISEN, ... they started to play Punk in their own style, far away from the typical Late Seventies UK sound that has been popular at that time. In the Early Eighties the living conditions for Punks in Germany haven´t been nice (like everywhere else) and so their music was raw and really offensive. The world hated the Punks and the Punks were hating the world.


"Fick Den Papst" originally was released on HEIMAT RECORDS from Germany in the year 1984, this here will become the first legit re-release on the original 7" format.

THE BRISTLES from Landskrona, Sweden were formed in the year 1982, the band name was inspired by the title of the G.B.H. album "Leather, Bristles, Studs And Acne". THE BRISTLES started their career in the beginning of the second wave of Punk and were influenced by bands like THE EXPLOITED and developed from Punk with OI! influences to a Raw Punk band. Together with swedish bands like ASTA KASK, SÖTLIMPA, EXISTENZ, MODERAT LIKVIDATION, NONCENS, E.A.T.E.R., ANTI-CIMEX and many others, THE BRISTLES were the new breed of fast playing bands that released mostly singles and played a lot of gigs. The band broke up in 1985 and re-united first time in 1996 and since 2008 the band is fully active again.

"Don´t Give Up" originally was released in 1983 on BRISTLES PUNK AND SKIN RECORDS from Sweden, this here is the first legit re-release on the original 7" format.
