‘S.O.D.’ – no, not ‘Stormtroopers Of Death’ – ‘Sound’ Of Disaster’ was a hardcore/thrash band from Mjölby (Sweden) with Göran Lind (vocals; editor of Arrrrrrrgh zine), Magnus Jonsson (drums), ‘Nutte’ Anders Rehn (guitar) & Petri Nyman (bass). The cover says the recordings are from October 1983. The songs were re-released on vinyl in 2005 (the bootleg 7″ Lagar Och Förordningar).

I met Göran Lind at the ‘Conflict’ gig in Antwerp (June ’84), bought the tape from him and asked if I could use one of the songs for the Smurfpunk compilation-tape that I was getting together. We exchanged records and tapes for years…

The band started in February ’83 in a different line-up than on the recordings (an October weekend with several takes in our practice-room). I sat in my room and compiled a tape with the -in my opinion- best versions of all the songs we did. I did all the cassette-copying, the sleeve, etc. myself and sent them all over. Most songs didn’t survive untill we did a proper recording about 6 months later. In ’85 we did a 2nd demo, that eventually became 2 7″s: the first released in September ’85 by ourselves and the second in late ’90 by Really Fast recs.

The band started with a different line-up, but that also had a different name. They were called ‘Anti M’. As far as I remember they changed drummer and name in August 1983. I recorded this demo by the way.

Electro Hippies (UK) Killing Babies Is Tight; tape (1986)

Standard

tracks:

(Intro) / Unity / Run Ronald / Wings of Death / Vivisection Song / Say Goodbye Now… / (Outro)

Under the motto ‘Play Fast Or Die’ this band (from the Wigan area) played crustgrind/punk. These first studio-recordings date from March 1986 and were done with Andy Barnard (guitar/vocals; later in ‘Metal Duck’), Simon (drums; later replaced by ‘Whitey’ Mark Wightman), Jeff(rey) Walker (vocals; also bass in ‘Carcass’) & Bruno (Brian Rylance; bass). Dom(inique) Murphy joined a bit on bass later: he was on the 1987 tour that landed them a gig with my own band (87-06-28).

Some of these songs also appeared on their first vinyl release (split-12″ with ‘Generic’; recorded -with Bruno on bass- July ’86 and released in March ’87 on Flat Earth recs). Their second tape (If Killing Babies Is Tight…Killing Babies For Profit Is Even Tighter) was recorded in January 1987).

Thanks to Geert ‘Mokka’ Mokwinski for borrowing this…
