The first part of the interview done with Josh Fury of Congress. The Edge-Metal pioneers from West-Flanders, Belgium. It's about his days before Congress, the Congress demo and the "Euridium" 7 inch.
Madball's debut LP is reissued on a German label called Backbite Records. Previously Music On Vinyl also reissued the Demonstrating My Style LP. I wanted to buy only one of both, so I had to choose. I thought the earlier the better, so I ended up ordering this one. This is a piece of though … Continue reading Madball "Set It Off" LP
Together with the previously discussed titles I also bought the Strife "One Truth" LP in the Victory Records order. Strife was a well-known Hardcore band back in the 90's. The record is entitled "One Truth" and dates from the year 1994. This white vinyl version is the most recent colored repress. It's a weird law … Continue reading Strife "One Truth" LP repress
The 'Euridium' release of Congress was groundbreaking. There was no school in K-Town (Kortrijk) where there were school kids that weren't into Congress. Every K-town school had kids that were into Congress at that time. At least that is what someone of my age and from the area told me during an interview. It spread … Continue reading Congress "Euridium" 7 inch reflections
Another NYHC band from the 90's is 25 Ta Life. Back then they delivered a breed of Hardcore that was popular here in Belgium, but also in France. They had a good live reputation, I was at one of their shows. People were moshing, stage-diving, singing along on the stage and were in short all … Continue reading 25 Ta Life "s/t" 7 Inch
I finally found a good prized and fine condition copy of this LP. I needed it because the songs A1 and B1 are actually H8000 bands that were covering their song of the Embrace s/t LP on Dischord. As you already knew, Embrace is a band that has Ian MacKaye on vocals. For those who … Continue reading V/A Land Of Greed… World Of Need LP
The pressing history of this records seems - according to the CRUCIAL RESPONSE pressing info page - quite disastrous. Seems that the vinyl labels were inverted, did not know if they meant the colors or the side the labels are on. But also the sleeves were reprinted after being rejected. This post is about a copy that still … Continue reading Spawn / Feeding The Fire 7" CLEAR wax
Genoeg met dat testpress gedoe. Deze post is een zoveelste ode aan de (h)8000 groep BLINDFOLD. Ik doe hem in het Nederlands omdat het uit mijn hart komt en niet een 100% objectieve review is van de plaat. Het is de symboliek die telt hier. Desondanks het feit dat het niet commercieel opgeklopt was of … Continue reading BLINDFOLD ‘World Of Fools’ Symboliek
