When ‘Inkisição’ (from Aveiro) played the Vort’n Vis (94-09-17); I got to know them personally and got befriended with both Rui (he distributed DIY tapes & vinyl, and did a zine, Diabo No Corpo) and their new singer Helena ‘Lena’ Paula Burbuleta. We corresponded and later I interviewed her for the Women in HC piece in my zine Tilt!. At this gig the others were Miguel (vocals, ex ‘Arrghh!’), Rui Maia (drums; Helena’s boyfriend, later husband), Píncaro (guitar; originally bassist) and Sérgio (bass). A while after the latter 2 died in a car-crash (Summer of 1995), Lena, Miguel & Rui formed ‘Intervenzione’.

The recordings of this demo were done before Helena had joined (that was in late ’93 – see interview) the band. Playing on the demo was the first stable line-up with Rui Maia on drums (founder of the band in the late 80s), guitarists Oliveira & Zé Vilao (the latter also singing, in Portugese) and Píncaro on bass. Review in Tilt! #7: >>Uptempo to fast straightforward but tuneful HC with lots of energy. Dual guitars and rock-bits. Very good! << The same tracks were on a split-tape with the Turkish band ‘Turmoil’ that Pablo of Resistance Productions made.

As for other releases: Slime recs released a split-CD with ‘X-Acto’ in ’93 and Ataque Sonoro (new name for Slime recs) a split-7″ with ‘Battle Of Disarm’ (’95). Some live recordings (Coimbra, Portugal, 1994) appeared on split-tape that Rui did on his tape-label D.N.C.). They also had a track on a compilation-EP with other Portugese bands, entitled Week-End Au Portugal (released by the French label Protesta & Euthanasie). There’s also a live-tape from their show with ‘The Offspring’ (@ Lintfabriek, Kontich, Belgium, 94-09-09)…

Mainstrike (Hol) Youth Crew; demo (1995)


Mainstrike coverSide ASide B

This demo was recorded March ’95 (a month before I first saw them at the Vort’n Vis, 95-04-09). Their orginal line-up was: Jeroen ‘Beertje’ Vrijhoef (guitar; later also ran the label Coalition recs with Marcel Palijama), Jasper Meijerink (bass; later replaced by Johnny van de Koolwijk), Jonas Moberg (guitar), Roland ‘Big’ ‘Lord Bigma’ Roller (vocals, also guitarist ‘Man Lifting Banner’) and Pepijn Oostenbrink (drums, later also in ‘One Day Closer’). ‘Mainstrike’ was an SxE band from Arnhem/Nijmegen and played ‘youth-crew’ style HC.

My review in Tilt! #8: >>Strong old-school SE-HC that makes you grind your teeth and jump head first into things. The kind I like… Lyrics in the positive vein…that could be a bit more challenging. Great tape that gives me good vibes.<< Here’s the interview I did with them for Tilt! #9: ‘Mainstrike’ interview 1997.

The tracks Faith, How I Feel, Can´t Bring Me Down & Foundation also appeared on the Times Still Here 7″ (re-recorded in September ’95).
