Mauser - End of the Line 7''

Ok, this is a new fucking 7'' from florida's Mauser. I had a long time to listen to a good, solid 7'' and this is what mauser truelly deliver. Catchy, raw d-beat with the vocal-style i like. HEAVY and growling. Each leg of the band is on different ship with the upstabbing discharge feeling being here for good, reminding me "realities of war" 7'', while the other is flerting with the sweds. Skitsystem, anti-cimex and the likes while you can hear some straight influences from all the reverbed vocal bands (Destino final etc). If you like modern d-beat raw bands like morpheme, d-clone and the rest this is a deadly 7''. the rip is stolen from amputeemembers.blogspot

The Fallout - Dismantlement

I woke up this morning with the tunes of this great canadian band ringing in my ears, so i give you some good old surfing punk rock. And that's coz i can't post again Rajahtaa's demo cd-r.
While i was searching some new bands on the web i came across a very good radio-show from canada, called equalizing-x-distort, where the guy behind the mic played all the tracks from the fucking rajahtaa demo. At last some greek band gets some notice outside greece. In his "show" i saw that he posted a band called The Fallout and i got a flash-back "somehow i know that bastards'. So, getting my head clear i remembered that this band is the same one with the band that have been impressed me a while back. They have been part of two cd-r(s) the magazine Profane Existence gave with the mag. Tracks like "peace, love, anarcgy" and "compassion over killing" made me dance on my bedroom like i am a 15 years old boy that now comes across - for first time - with bands like the Adverts, dead kennedys, Magazine or Blitz. Yep, Fallout combines all the great melodic parts of the early uk punk bands with very good - to the point - lyrics and some hints of modern us punk rock (reminds occasionaly anti-flag or pennywise but in a good way - trust me). This album was released back in 2007 and i think it's their fourth full lenght and their final release. Yeah this is punk-rock to the bone and this is my new week's soundtrack.


p.s. i got some goodies from the 7inchcrust mastermind and i'll post'em in the next few days. cheers on...

Leatherface (or making a self-inflicted criticism)

Αυτό το Blog χαροπαλεύει, ναι χαροπαλεύει.
Όχι γιατί δεν υπάρχει όρεξη και μπρίο.
Απλά, πλέον δεν υπάρχει ζωούλα.
Όμορφη σαν ανοιξιάτικο πρωινό με μυρωδάτο καφέ φουντούκι.
Η καθημερινότητα δείχνει να επιβάλλεται ολοένα και περισσότερο στο αρχέγονο αυτό συναίσθημα του «παιχνιδιού» και της χαράς.

Αυτό το blog νεκρώνει, όπως ακριβώς ένας 83 αντάρτης που πλέον δεν μπορεί να πάρει τα πόδια του.
Το μονό που τον νοιάζει είναι μερικά ακόμα τσιγάρα.
Περισσότερο ίσως είναι και η απογοήτευση ενός ανθρώπου που νοιώθει ότι δεν έχει σταθεί στο ύψος των περιστάσεων, που κουράζεται εύκολα χωρίς να βλέπει τηλεόραση, που ξέρει πολλά από άποψη και χωρίς αντίληψη, που μεγάλωσε νωρίς χωρίς να πρέπει, που διαβάζει πολύ χωρίς να μπορεί να το χρησιμοποιήσει.
Που είχε ονειρευτεί άλλα…..

 So, yep. You knew that from the start. This blog seems to go to ER (without george clooney). I might have the power to save it, i may not. I really don't know. My life seems to be more over a sad fairytale than a proper violent commodity.

How, all that stuff could be combined with leatherface? I really don't lnow, perhaps their pessimistic pro-Husker du tunes have the opposite effects on my brain. I have to listen at least one time the day their 7'' "I want the moon" from '91 to feel i'm upon my legs. If you haven't already discover the wisdom skills of mr. frankie Stubbs little gang i've included their first LP from 1989 called "Cherry Knowle", the 7'' "Beerpig" and the "I want the moon" 7'' (the self titled song is the original soundtrack for all the broken hearts). Listen responsibly and start calling...
