KROMOZOM 4
1. Kromozom 4
2. La tuture
3. Tout faux!
4. Ich bin
HEIMAT-LOS
1. La seconde nécessaire de Léon Zyklon
2. Assisté
3. De vlag
4. Fascios fora!

I've done a lot of French music bashing on the site in the past, so I figured I'd make up for it by adding this killer thrash split ep. Both of these bands played blistering fast punk that we called thrash back in the day(before the word became over used and corny as hell). I really don't know jack about the bands, other than they started in the early 80's, and both put out a slew of records, and tapes.
What I can tell you is that I was turned onto this one by an old friend/band mate from the Romper Room Rejects. Michael R. was a French immigrant who was living in S.F. illegally in the mid 80's. /he was a house painter, and a punk rock bassist who turned me onto some cool European punk music in 1987-88. I've been wondering what happened to my friend for well over 20 years now.

  1. Just listening to the first song is just great, kromozom kromozom!!!!!!!!!

    The second song "Latuture" gives you an idea of the sound of the band, a traditional good old punk rock music.

    But then again you have another short song, short songs are great, I just saw the bar walking really fast towards the end of "tout fax", a great funny short song.

    "Ich Bin" is more like a serious song, a little more aggressive than "La tuture" I think, still punk.
    Good band, never heard of them.

    From Heimat, my impression on the first song "La Seconde", was that this band had more aggression than kromozom, and even reminds be a bit of Napalm Death or Sore Throat, only without growling vocals.

    The second song "Assiste" shows more punk music, but with some more melody or feeling.

    Third song "De vlag" confirms that this band is some kind of melodic punk, (or maybe I'm just crazy).

    Final song "Fascios Fora" starts with a more traditional punk rock sound, and then speed up some more, a more aggressive sound than the others, good song.

    It's good punk split, 2 great french bands I never knew.

    Where did you get all this weird bands??

    Thanks Nate

    Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I'm with yeah. often wonder where these weird records come from. I would love to see your collection.

  3. Heimat-Los probably had one of the most gimmicky concepts for a band ever: the idea was to sing in as many languages possible. So, for example on the record you present their is -besides the French tracks- also one sung in Dutch and in Italian (?). Now for a French person to sing/scream Dutch/German etc is laughable, it just sounds ridiculous and silly. A few years ago somebody thought it necessary to make a (totally superfluous) 2x CD discography record.

    1. I´m sure you weren´t there when they were alive and kicking - this CD is a reminder of how good and innovative european hardcore wasin the 80s

      Delete
  4. is it as laughable as the Dutch trying to sing in French?
    I've heard of worse gimmicks, But generally gimmicks are a no no.

  5. you have done some real French bashing on here. can't say i know either of these bands, or of much hardcore/punk from France at all. i do/did have a 7" by a band called Krull - "Anguish" - that I thought was pretty good. thats about it off the top.

    it was death metal (i.e. Massacra, Agressor, Death Power, Merciless, etc) that opened my eyes to France.

  6. the heimat-los 2xcd is awesome, i think. they're fast as hell, but still melodic, and with really cool bass parts. i'd say if you like later rkl stuff, you should search it out.

  7. fuck the French! hahaha

  8. At most testing to behold if your annotation fuctinon works, mine doesnt!

  9. Yeah, Jbm is right first french bands I used to listen to were Aggressor and also Loudblast, from a Split LP Licensed to thrash,

    By the way Jbm, remember about the Condemned lyrics sheet, was it possible for you to take a picture of them.

    Cheers!!!

  16. yo Macabrem. i took those pics for ya. theyre pretty big scans when i open em, they're not 100% centered, and u can see a bit of a glare from the leather chair the insert was sitting on when i took the pic, but you shouldn't have any problem reading them, given u have a way to blow it up, and print it that way. i'm not real handy with the digital cam though, so i'm tryin to figure out some stuff as i type this. but i thought i'd go ahead and let u know i went ahead and snapped some shots of it for ya, and see how u wanted to do this. i don't know if u wanna just leave me your email addy here..

    i'm certainly open for suggestions.

  19. glad i could help!! i do hope they're ok for ya. i noticed the bottom of the non-lyric side was a little hazy when i looked at it again.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, maybe a little, but It's OK that way.

    Have you heard the Attitude versions of some of the condemned songs, I think their great too.

    Cheers Jbm!!

    hey MacabreM, i was gonna say somethin else about the Condemned LP to ya earlier then hesitated cause i don't wanna feel like we've ruined the discussion on this post. you wanna take this conversation over to the actual Condemned post??

  29. I've heard the split LP, but had no idea there was also a split 7". Heimat-Los were anything but a gimmick band, in fact i'd say they were ahead of their time. Raging melodic hardcore with an almost proto-black metal vibe. Stuff bands like Iskra were doing like 15 years later, only not as creative, energetic and well...good.

    One thing i've been trying to find out forever. Heimat-Los have one song (i forget the name, but it's from the split LP) that has a composition i've heard in other songs. A black metal band called Hemlock used it, and they also play it in the movie Leningrad Cowboys go America. I'm pretty sure it's from an old German composer (although it could be Russian). Anyway, if anyone knows the name of the song or composer, please post it.

    hey buddy, I didnt see you at the brooklyn recrd fair today. did you go?

    thanks for the comments.

  31. Nate, i couldn't make the record fair.

    Finally got a rip of the Heimat-Los 2xCD. The second CD is all live stuff, and not all that essential, but the first disc is unreal. This band really were doing something nobody else were doing at the time. Too bad they're so under the radar. I hold them in pretty high regard.

  32. Stormy,

    I think you're referring to HEIMAT-LOS song "de vlag" which is using tunes from Alexander Chatschaturjans (who was from Georgia - the country, not the US state) epic "saber dance" also called "cossack song". It's been used in many a song, and also was the soundtrack for a famous TV advertising spot in Germany in the 70s and 80s (for a cofee liqueur)You should find several versions on youtube.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The HEIMAT-LOS complete discography 2xCD is still available from me for cheap: Ratbone Records - It has everything they ever recorded and more: all records, comp tracks, demos... + bonus live/rehearsal material, and comes with a thick booklet including lyrics, band history, photos, flyers, etc.

  34. Hi, thank Vermox Online for sharing this great info. Was just browsing through the net in my office and happened upon your blog. clomid Online is really very well written and quit comprehensive in explaining with a very simple language.
