Anyone that has followed this blog over the decade that its existed knows of my odd love of German 80's hardcore. I was turned onto a lot of it by two Germans who spent time in SF hanging with my buddy Zoran and I in around 86-87. After they left back to Germany I'd get random mixed tapes of obscure German hc in the mail.
This is one of those bands I was turned onto by these guys. I had to work pretty hard to find the actual vinyl of it back then.
Pretty raging thrashy hardcore that at times remind me of the almighty Black Flag (check out the song Last Mistake).
Listening to this one brings back many happy memories. Enjoy!

A gig that happened around 20 years ago. I found this flyer and tape of both Spazz and Monster X while picking through some of my basement crap. The tape is a recording from the board. This CBGBs show was insanely packed, with a very "diverse" crowd due to the strange line up. One emo band would play and a bunch of kids from outside would run in while they played. A more brutal band would play and the emo kids would go outside while the other kids came in. Tyler King put this one on. I recall him talking to me as we were loading in about him getting a cease and desist letter from a lawyer from another Monster X band. I laughed and told him we got those every month. Tyler ripped it up and obviously let us play. Some highlights for me were having Danny Lilker (Anthrax, SOD and Brutal Truth) come up to me after our set and tell me how much he dug us and loved the cover of straight ahead that we did. Also meeting Timojhen Mark face to face and him telling me that he flew out to see us from Cali. Listening to Chris Kellys between song banter ragging on all the emo bands playing. Hilarious... It sure was a strange line up. I would love to see the MX set come out as a live LP. Get at me if you have interest i n putting it out. Someday I'll post the Spazz set.
Set is separated into 2 sides, both sides are larger wav files

Hands down the greatest Cleveland punk/hardcore band of all time in my opinion. I was introduced to their sound by my buddy Wedge in the 90s. Wedge lives in the Cleveland area and was a founding member of 9 Shocks Terror (and numerous other bands). Dude would always bring me surprise tapes of bands I'd never heard on our mini tours or weekend gigs we'd play together.
The band started off as a two piece, then later joined up with others to make them a legit force to be reckoned with. This features everything... 43 songs. "Outta Glue", "Kill Preps" etc. Don't sleep on this one.

The Comes are by far one of my top 5 favorite Japanese hardcore bands ever. They were involved in the early wave of Japanese hardcore (Lipcream, Gauze, Gism, etc). I am in love with the "No Side LP". These guys were fronted by a punk as fuck female (a rarity in those days). Chitose who sang went on to sing in a few metal bands after the Comes broke up (Virgin Rocks, The Wretched). Pretty sure the drummer went on to play in Gastunk. There are a shit tons of songs on this disc. Its live... but I still love it. The band only had two proper releases, so this is like a dream come true.
01-14: Recorded live at MEGURO ROKUMEIKAN 1983

This CD has a whopping 47 songs on it, way to many for me to list. It consists of the Raleigh, North Carolina bands 1982 Jane Doe demo, a bunch of compilation tracks, and a live set. Total nerdum for hardcore freaks. For those unfamiliar No Labels were pre C.O.C. (Woody on Bass, and Reed on Drums). I had only ever heard a few of the bands comp tracks, and then later on the No Core stuff. This was a beautiful time for hardcore. I was still a metal head when this band existed, and didn't start gravitating towards stuff like this until maybe 1984. The band was infamous for their war on Ian Mackaye and the D.C. Straight edge scene. Enjoy the rage!
