This interview with Hans Liar was done in 2009. It's about the many things he did for Hardcore from his youth up until 2009. About the bands he played in: Liar, Blindfold and more. About the record labels he ran and about the friendships he made.
Obscure 90's compilation that had an unreleased Blindfold track.
Finally acquired another one of the last missing pieces of the Blindfold collection. I say 'one of the' because one never knows when a collection is complete. Although I already knew about the existence thanks to a mention of a fellow collector. I also mentioned it way back on the discography post of Blindfold. In … Continue reading BLINDFOLD Live At Vortn Vis Lp YELLOW
The post isn't about records but about posters promoting these records. I have myself a small collection of GOOD LIFE RECORDINGS and SOBER MIND RECORDS releases. And these things are despite their not mint condition dear to me and would like to share them to those who also get sweet memories from that period they … Continue reading Good Life and Sober Mind Release Posters
Speaking of "bars and stars" from the DC-flag as mentioned in the previous post by my man Ezekiel. Here's another later record that was inspired by that artwork. But that's far from the core of this write-up! What I'm trying to say is that this record was never discussed on H8000 Central and never here, … Continue reading REGRESS NO WAY Compilation (Belgium 1992)
Obviously there are two versions of the BLINDFOLD Live In Simple Beauty TAPE. This tape was released by REFUSE Records from Poland. And has the first 2 seveninches from Blindfold, as you already know, the DEPROGRAMMERS DON'T EXIST 7" and the SOBERMIND MEDITATION 7" but also the song from the legendary V/A Regress No Way … Continue reading Early BLINDFOLD Live Recordings TAPES
Couldn't resist to make this BLINDFOLD 8000 crew hardcore related post! Because I'm pretty stoked on having this gem. Am talking about a record from which the title says it all; "Sober Mind Meditation". Many people don't know about this record outside of Europe or even Belgium. People know about H8000 but few know about … Continue reading Blindfold TESTPRESSING !! (8000-crew essentials)
Blindfold: Check out the popular Discography post also here !
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
The kind-hearted music BLINDFOLD plays, is generated by the raw but cozy bass parts and the rhythmic drums. The bass and percussion are definitely the instruments that make it punk. But Hans is the one who brings the aggression in this music with his guitar. This slight aggressive touch and stir is not pretentious because … Continue reading BLINDFOLD 1993 ‘Restrain The Thought’
