It's quite possible this record wasn't played by human beings. Gauze set a new standard in tightness here, leaving their (not to sneeze at) peers in the dust. This sounds like a sped up version of Nightmare, Bastard, Death Side and themselves. I know... See full review
God Bullies

Together with bands like Killdozer and Tad, the God Bullies represented the dark underbelly of white trash America, inhabited by TV Evangelists, Snake Charmers, inbred Hillbilly Serial Killers and three eyed Swamp Monsters. Their motto 'War on... See full review

The UK answer to TSOL (or is it the other way around?). Black Cat sounds like a lost take from the Weathered Statues sessions. Pretty neat proto Goth/Death Rock with obvious Damned and Siouxsie influences.

There is something about all these over designed, high quality printed, multiple versioned collectors nightmares that really puts me off. I mean it's very neat and all and some of it looks great, but it's a far cry from urgency of the Pusmort days.... See full review

Contrary to what they want you to believe, there is nothing classic about these bands or this scene. Dumb reactionary Cro magnon hardcore for Anti-Vaxxers and Trump supporters. You know, real men who live by a code.

MIA is the winner here, raw & catchy So-Cal HC and a total classic that can hold it's own against the Samoans, Red Kross etc. I Hate Hippies is one of the Great Punk Hits. Genocide are a bit more generic sounding, mainly due to sloppy production. The... See full review

By the time this came out the KBD/Bloodstains/BTF sage was beginning to wear a bit thin, but it's a cool installment nonetheless with standout tracks by The Executives, Discords, X-Patriots and the Red Squares. Hee haw!

One of my fave French language Punk records. Cold and gnarly sounding but very catchy and driving with just enough reverb to evoke the delapitated streets of a rainy Brussels suburb in the 1970's.

Lonely Streets is great on this, raw and slightly inept Synth Pop with a live feel that unintentionally reaches high drama because of the interaction between the endless arpeggio and the rest of the arrangement. A real gem!

The Doom side is obviously a classic, but No security is no slouch either. Manic Swedish hardcore vs D-Beat karaoke hits make this on of the best split albums of the era.

This might've worked as a 4x12 but as with the other D&B Selection comps the pressing is lousy and cannot be played at loud volume if you don't wanna drown in a sea of distortion and surface noise. Running it red indeed, but not in the way you want... See full review

Lewcified Rmx is top tier Jungle Techno with a 4/4 bottom and acid stabs, which is kinda rare for this era when many producers favored the piano over the 303. Dark and moody and sucks you in. It's among his best work. The Summerfield rmx is passable... See full review

I'm guessing The Trap is from '96. Sound design similar to Storm & Dynamics, and compare the break of You're Something Else around 1.30 to The Trap around 1.30. Think these were all done around the same time in '96, his best year for me, with 97 as a... See full review
