Gianluca of Godzilla records had previously released a vinyl LP with two live concerts with my old band Anti Cimex. This cassette simply contains one of the concerts, the one at Birkagården in Stockholm, 1985. Probably recorded on a simple taperecorder but still good enough quality that the bands sound and aggrevation is clear! Printed in 250 pieces, and Cimex record have 50 of them.
When we put Driller Killer to hibernation I didnt actually have any band at all. And Al Rixon just put The Accidents to rest and moved to Gothenburg. We had been talking about doing something together for a long time. So we started to meet up in the rehearsal and did some songs. We really liked them and wanted someone to sing them, so we called Joe Visst, also vocals in Ticking Bombs, and bam, we had a band, sort of. We didnt have a bass player and a solo guitarist, but that didnt stop us. We lended people to both gigs and recordings.
Whatabout the music? I think its a good mash up between Motörhead and GBH. Fast, furious and with rock'n'roll as the foundation. We only did record the nine songs that this LP contains, and I must admit that Im very proud of my drumming here. Might be the best drumtracks I ever did! But thats me. Whatabout you? If your into fast, punky rock, this might be for you!
We are the poison, why arent you?
A release in cooperation with Tvåtakt Records.
PI$$ER - Crushed down to paste
They’re back! And upping the ante in the d-beat / hardcore with weird saxophone stakes. The first 7”, Wretched Life created quite a stir and sold out superfast, and now Crushed Down to Paste takes things up a notch over the course of its 20+ minutes. The saxophone is employed more extensively (but still with those wonky-sounding lines we all loved on the 7”) and the vocal effects are cranked up to 11.
The material is dynamic, moving from the thrashing anti-fascist bile of Nazi Rhythm to the beguiling, almost soulful, Dance in the Light of Your Burning Bridges, the five minute+ ending to the record, channelling NEU! As much as IMPALERS in its urge to break away from a destructive past and start anew. This isn’t punk-by-numbers and it never will be.
Some have called PI$$ER a d-beat / hardcore / punk “supergroup” and, in fairness, they do feature members / ex-members of DOOM, ANTI-CIMEX, THE DOMESTICS, SORE THROAT, THE SHITTY LIMITS, REVENGE OF THE PSYCHOTRONIC MAN, PERSONNEL, WOLFHOUR, BEAT THE RED LIGHT, BRING THE DRONES, TOKYO LUNGS, CABRO and more, but this band has a sound that no one else is making.
