for any information or for discussing releases. However, I don't have time for mp3's/CD-rips and nothing in my collection is for sale.

Goblin - Suspiria, the eponymous soundtrack to Dario Argento's fantastic horror classic. The movie is a visual treat, by the way.
▪ Loads of 'UK82' punk. Too many bands to sum up really. I like anything that has that indignant vibe. And I still loathe Thatcher !
▪ Some early 80s US punk: Black Flag, Flipper, Reagan Youth,... Later, more "hardcore jock" oriented bands aren't my cup of tea.

posted a review of The Freeze - Guilty Face. 39 minutes ago
7" disc format. 11 tracks. 14'52" running time. 33⅓ RPM. On transparent red vinyl.
... I just knew in advance that this particular edition wasn't going to sound too great.
Yet, its marred sound quality fits the music's hardcore feel perfectly. I kinda ... See full review

BEST crust/punk/D-beat band in recent years! Pissed off, aggressive, dedicated - just as it should be.
And they sound like the resurrected corpse of GG Allin with The Varukers as his backing band ! ! ! ! !

One of the very first compilation LP's I ever bought, loooooong time ago. I really wanted to have it, because of its promising "punk" sleeve and - of course - because there was a Sex Pistols track on it !
Turned out I actually liked only a handful of other ... See full review

In a sense, this jazzy 1974 Kraut-release is a true oddity in my collection, as I’m mainly a wave/punk/ industrial kind of guy. But I happen to like the autumnal melancholic mood of this album a LOT, and above all it has an additional special meaning to ... See full review

Mediocre pressing with fairly high background noise level. But the music remains terrific, the livetracks on side B are a very nice bonus, and everybody loves clear "first Faust LP"-style vinyl. Right? Right!

"Phenol" must be one of the most sinister sounding Power Electronics tracks ever recorded.
I'm not really that much into Ramleh, but this piece is arguably a quintessential genre classic.
