DEVOUR - Insect Circuitry EP (2010)

Been meaning to post this 7" for about 5 years now but kept getting sidetracked with other stuff. These guys were from Raleigh, North Carolina and must have grown up listening to hometown heroes C.O.C. because they do remind me of them (their early stuff anyways). Members also played in Cross Laws and Logic Problem. Their only other release was a S/T 12" MLP on Sorry State records that came out in 2008.

VA - Vancouver Evolution EP (20??)

Bootleg 7" comp of some of the earliest bands in the Vancouver punk scene. These recordings from 1977-79 were never released until the 1991 Zulu Records double CD "Last Call: Vancouver Independent Music 1977-1988". Although these four bands were short lived, key members would soon go on to form D.O.A., Subhumans and the Pointed Sticks to name a few. Supreme Echo Records is currently working on a Stiffs 7" EP that I think will be out later this year or next.

AFTER THE BOMBS - Complete Discography tape (2016)

Continuing on with Canadian content month, here's some wicked female-fronted metal crust from Montreal. Well, not some but all as this tape compiles everything they put out(hence the title). Singer Janick Varning is currently fronting Parasytes, go check that shit out.

TERMINAL STATE - Sick EP (2007)

Toronto's been cranking out heaps of great HC bands for years now and these guys were no exception. I know at least one dude from Terminal State later played two other killer T-dot bands, School Jerks and Kremlin. They also have another 7" available as well as a 12"EP and a demo. There's mention on the Deranged Records site about a CD discography in the works, but that was from 2007 so I'm going to assume it's either taking a realllly long time to for it come out or it was scrapped altogether.

GET LOOSE CREW - S/T MLP (1988)

Since Canada just turned the big 150, I thought I'd change things up and post this nation's first rap record. Although technically I think the first Canadian hip hop release was the 1987 compilation "Break'n Out" that was produced by KRS-One and Scott La Rock of BDP. Still, I gotta wonder what took so long for something to come out here especially considering how geographically close Toronto was to NYC.

MENTAL RESCUE - Straightjacket tape (2009)

Debut release by what I'm assuming is a studio side project featuring Chany from Inepsy on vocals and Jo Galipeau from Germ Attak playing all the instruments. This sounds nothing those aforementioned bands, instead what you get here is short fast HC that almost sounds like it was written on the spot. They also released a couple of 7"s, (one of them limited to a whopping 23 copies) that can be heard here.

CHAIN REACTION - Gabbie EP (1985)

When I was in Rome back in 2012, I bought a double CD comp called Love/Hate that turned me on so many wicked bands like these guys here. Chain Reaction only put out this one 7", but man it's a scorcher. I ripped it from their 2011 LP, "Rottura Totale", which includes a remixed / remastered version of 'Gabbie' plus a couple of low quality live tracks from '83 and some 2010 recordings from a reunited lineup. I didn't bother adding those because they lack the fury and intensity of that original EP.

THE JURY - S/T EP (2008)

Just over a year ago I posted this Albany band's split 7" with Total Fury. Shortly after that I found this record for a few bucks at Hits And Misses(RIP). If y'all dug them on that split, no reason you won't dig this one as well.

BIRTH DEFORMITIES - Suburbanized MLP (2012)

Short lived band from Chicago that featured members of Cülo and Gas Rag. That should be enough credentials for you right there. Their only other release was a demo that's mostly earlier versions of songs off this 10".

VAURIO - Sortoa Ja Vainoa EP (2007)

Like Lama, here's another Finnish band who's album I posted last year and have been meaning to follow up on. This was their first recording from 1983 originally intended to be released on Propaganda Records in '84. For some reason it never happened, although two of the songs appeared on the "Finnish Spunk/Hard Beat" comp that year and the whole session ended up as bonus tracks on the 1996 CD reissue of "Propaganda - Hardcore 83". It wasn't until 10 years ago that Feral Ward reissued the 7" the way it was originally intended.

TARANTÜLA - I Got High With Bela Lugosi tape (2016)

CÜLO is back! Kind of... Well, 3/4 of them are anyways. They've got a bit of a different sound going here (and a bass guitar) but they still remind me of their previous band at times. Which is fine by me. This is their second demo, from the same recording session as their first tape. They've got a 7" EP coming out soon too, suckas.

LAMA - Ja Mikään Ei Muuttunut LP (1983)


I meant to post this right after putting up their amazing self-titled album early last year but got sidetracked with other stuff. This album compiles the Finnish band's 7" EPs and is definitely a must have. Ripped from the Brazilian CD reissue.

VA - Blazing Anarchy Mixtape (2017)

This sampler is a pretty good place to start if you're not familiar with the current HC scene over in Europe. Most of the songs on this cassette comp are previously released, although it does include an unreleased jam by the now defunct DiE, which to me is worth the price of admission alone. Came with a sweet poster too!

BLOODY HAMMER - When In Rome EP (2011)


Not to be confused with the streetpunk band from Melbourne Australia, this was a one man project from Houston Texas by the dude from Secret Prostitutes, Reason Of Insanity and a million other bands. Check out the artists he listed as inspiration on the back cover and you get the idea.

ELECTROCUTIONER - Slipping Into Darkness tape (2017)

Recorded on the same day (in Compton) as their last tape Wretch In Order. This is their best sounding release yet production-wise, perhaps because it's on a pro cassette this time around. Four songs in five minutes, what more do you need?

GRIMA - Demo tape (2014)

THE DEVIANTZ - S/T tape (1998)

Snotty punk rock from Surrey, BC. I found this tape last week at the bottom of a box in my storage locker. I haven't seen or heard it since at least the early 00's. I saw them play once at Club Paradise in New Westminster (a place that has changed names dozen times since), perhaps even opening for DOA? Their bass player would later play in another Surrey band, LUPUS.

VA - Fuck The Commonwealth CD (1994)

This Canadian comp opened me up to a lot of bands when I bought it back in the mid 90's. I recently found a cheap copy of the vinyl version that has less songs, but also a few that weren't on the CD.

SINEATER - Dunce Cap & Pencil Neck EPs (1993-94)

Here's another from band Kamloops. I've seen these two 7"s in local record stores so much over the years I assumed they were from the Vancouver area. I finally bought both of them because I figured someone out there may want to hear them again. They also have a split 7" with Christie Front Drive and a demo tape that can be downloaded HERE.
