KRUNCH tjafs & dalt 7" (1985)
This is the Third ep by these Swedish punkrockers. Most purists are going to tell you they love the first 7" best due to its raw punkness...Me I love the metallic over tones this ep has. Don't get me wrong its still a pure hardcore punk masterpiece, but the production is so thick, and heavy that I think most metalheads will be able to handle this shit without thinking its to fucking punk. The band goes far beyond what many other Swedish bands are doing at the time. Another Band that refused to fall into the dis thing that was/is happening so heavily over there forever now. Sweden is known for its d beat crust masters, so its always refreshing to hear something that doesn't sound like everything else in the region.
I bought this one on a fluke. Driving across country when I was moving from S.F. back to New York in 1989. I had a little purple 1972 Gremlin that was filled with my records, a guitar, and some clothes. At any rate it took me 5 days to make the trip. I stopped in a record store in the middle of Omaha Nebraska, and saw this 7" in the used bin for .49 cents.
