Infekcja (Pol) promo (1998)



Strzeż Się! (Beware!) / Apolityczność (Political Disengagement) / Wegetariański Świat (Vegetarian Life) / Macho

‘Infekcja’ is – the band still exists – an anarcho-crust band from Wrocław (Poland) playing passionate, angry, pissed-off scandi-punk. Members: ‘Biały’ (bass), ‘Słoma’ (guitar), ‘Biki’ (drums), ‘Mokry’ (vocals) & ‘Mosiek’ (guitar).

I believe this tape (which also contains tracks by ‘Enough‘) was a promo for their tour (organised by Filip Majchrzakowski of the label Trująca Fala). They ended up playing at the Vort’n Vis in Ieper (98-04-19) and at the Franse Vaart squat in Ghent (98-04-20).

I also got to know more about them because of the split-tape with my mates of ‘Juggling Jugulars’ (Fin). Check out their other releases on infekcja.bandcamp. And if you understand Polish, check infekcja.blogspot.

Disabuse (Hol) live (Aalst, Bel, 88-06-11)



(soundcheck) / Faces Of Death / Monkey Brain Eaters / Thirsty Beast / Mamory Brain / Fast But Not First / Eyes Of Hatred / Throw It Away / Shortsighted And Dumb / Where’s The Emergency Door? / Abused Animals / Cry Of The Child / Refused Sacrifice / Just For The Kick / In The Mirror

Disabuse‘ was a bunch of people from the scene around the Chi Chi Club in Winterswijk (The Netherlands). Since we were closely in touch with people doing shows and playing in bands over there (‘Winterswyx Chaos Front’, ‘Cry Of Terror’, …), we got to know them aswell. On 88-06-11 we invited them over to perform on a Smurfpunx gig. That was registered by Jan ‘Bux’ De Vriendt. This show was before they recorded their 1st (self-released) 12″ (Sorrow And Perdition) – which was in February 1989. At the time the band consisted of ‘Arch(y)’ Arno Wamelink (vocals), Patrick van der Beek (bass), Jeroen Keetels (drums) and Edwin Woerdman & Brian Haverkamp (guitarists).

Another tape from my mate Geert ‘Mokka’ Mokwinski’s collection… It was released by the band in 1985 and in ’86 by the tape-label Ukrutnost tapes (precursor to Lük Haas’ Tian An Men 89 recs). Recordings are from 1984 in the Czech capital Prague.

Fourth Price Band‘ (ex ‘IV. Skupina’) was a punk band from Teplice (North Bohemia). The band-name refers to the official price-categories in restaurants/pubs in Czechoslovakia at the time: the ‘4th price category’ implied the lowest service-quality, comfort and beer-prices… They existed from 1980-87. Interesting thing one can read on the www: >>The members of local official rock-bands drafted a petition against them, demanding that this “anti-cultural act” be banned, and the authorities successfully prevented ‘F.P.B.’ from playing any gigs in that part of the country (so most of their gigs took place in Prague).<< The music was described as “tight anthemic punk rock”, with references to ‘The Damned’, ‘Devo’, ‘Killing Joke’, etc.

A review in MRR #43 reads: >>40 minutes of fast, energetic punk from this Czech band. Good production brings out the power of their 15 originals and 4 covers (‘The Damned’, ‘The Residents’, etc.). Neat.<<

Playing in the band at that time were: Miroslav Wanek (bass/vocals), Milan Nový (drums) and Jaromír ‘Romek’ Hanzlík (guitar; R.I.P.). There was an LP out (Kdo Z Koho, Ten Toho) in 1991. Later they formed ‘Už Jsme Doma’ (We’re Already Home), an experimental punk/prog band. Martin Valášek of Malarie recs released ‘F.P.B.’s discography, entitled Kniha Přání A Stížností (Book Of Wishes And Complaints), in 2008.

46 Italian hardcore/punk-bands from the early 80s compiled on a tape by Roberto Lentino (Inverno, Pavia).

Spread and duplicate in the face of those assholes who speculate on ‘collecting’ punk.

This is the spirit of this tape: not forcing those interested in this particular period (82/85) to pay undue sums of money to get the vinyl, but stimulating the free distribution through trades or tapes like these.

The recordings reflect those of that period, in any case this is the best result that arose. Special aoplogies to ‘Bedboys’, ‘Crash Box’, ‘Irah’, ‘Shotgun Solution’ & ‘Tiratura Limitata’, for limiting their tracks in favour of other bands that otherwise would not have found a space.
