Siegfried Wendel - oldtime music - Vintage mechanical instrument devices lp (SMM03)


I bought this album the other week from a charity shop for 49p purely because i found the cover interesting lol, it looked weird and strange and the black and white sleeve reminded me of a family album i have.

Sic Boy Federation - Exploding baby (1990)



My mate used to have this punk album back in the early 90's, but he got rid because it had a couple of racially questionable remarks on it, but it played on my mind for years and i couldnt find it online at all so ended up buying it on vinyl, cost me about £8.
The nearest i can describe them is a more basic Anti nowhere league.

Time to melt


Heres a weird thing, an old metteler mate created this for me and a mate when he knew we'd be dropping some acid, back in the very early 90's
He created it on his Commodore Amiga, and i've listened to this loads while tripping, it really works

G.G.F - as you curl up and die (demotape, 1987)



Somebody from my home city wanted this uploading so thought i'd post it here aswell.
G.G.F were one of the best punk bands to come out of Sheffield during the mid - late 80's
They sounded very american and melodic and had a sense of humour as witnessed on the song Bon Europe and the last song Niall was a fat git lol.

Zanti Misfits - Heroes are go 12"



This is a band ive always liked for some strange reason, they havent released much, just this 12" and a few 7"s and i've been struggling to find em online for download so resorted to buying the original vinyl and ripping myself (i'm still waiting to aquire 1 single)
They sound like a mix of punk, indie, post punk, experimental and a blast of saxophones.
The were on jettisoundz music label and were also on clay records same as GBH and Discharge

Operation Solstice (Battle of the beanfield) 1985


now for a change, heres a video i upped for another site so thought id stick it on here too

a brief history of the events

now watch 10 minutes here, most of it is unbroadcast news footage, even the newsmen couldnt believe what they were seeing, men, women and children being beaten and their homes smashed to bits and burnt.

warning this footage brings me to tears EVERYTIME i see it, and fills me with rage, you have been warned, its shocking.

and heres the classic levellers (folk punk) song of the events
which also makes the hairs on my body stand on end and tears to my eyes with sadness

Subhumans - Live Sheffield Leadmill 17.2.85 (tape)


I've posted this on a torrent site, may as well post it here aswell, heres what i said............

Heres a rarity, i've been told even the guy who taped it, and released it, and Dick from the band dont even have a copy of this...yet
I've left it as is, i dont go in for altering the audio, i'd just fuck it up, there is a clicky noise near the beginning but i think it disappears about 1 minute in or so, its not bad played on the puter but on my hifi it was loud as fuck.
I've ripped it to flac as the original sound qualitys ok but not amazing so wanted to preserve as much of the sound as i could.

This isnt actually a bluurg release either, it was released on a small Sheffield distro called "epileptic chainsaw tapes" and this was the 2nd release (epic 2), the guy who taped / released it was in a band called protest too.

The set is 43minutes and 43 seconds long, this includes some interviewing and crowd noise due to a fight that occurred that night...i left the whole tape as is.

All gone dead
From the cradle to the grave
Not me

Brian Brain - Unexpected noises (1980)



Heres another undervalued classic weirdy record. I saw this for download on a blog AFTER i'd ripped it, but as its still pretty hard to find and good i thought i'd still upload it.

Brian Brain was Martin Atkins (PIL, Ministry, Pigface, NIN, killing Joke etc) they released this lp and a few singles.
Strangely this is the only Secret Records record i've seen that has a BLACK label, Normally they have a YELLOW label (Twisted Sister, Exploited etc) if anybody knows why, or what other ones are black labels let me know.

This is Brain 1 (on Secret records) from 1980

Another million miles
Our man in Hong Kong
I get pain
The hots for you
The asthma game
Unexpected noises
Theyve got me in the bottle
Dirty dealing in the lone star state
Turn it into noise
I'm suffocating

Phaser - Indian Summer cd single



Heres a local (Redcar) indie band i knew a member of, i've no idea if theyre still going. I bought this cdr off the gutarist Luke when i was on an IT course with him in the late 90's.
