I remember that TWP 8.5” flexi EVERYWHERE in the 90’s. You couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a copy.

I really liked the Northern Haze LP he reissued, very amazing work on that. I enjoyed the Triton Warrior 7” as well and I’m super excited for the Neos LP reissue he’s doing! I have yet to pick up that Mission of Christ LP even though I feel like it might be real raw and right up my alley.

feels like it could be on Wild Riders of Boards. The Accused + ABC Diabolo or something. It's not super raw, but it has a great, early vibe to it.

Looking forward to the book.  Hoping there is an entire chapter on October File.  As an aside, I don't know how you mention "but they always sounded like fourth or fifth generation copies" and not somewhere offer them lossless.

Over the years, there has been a demand for an official re-release of the band’s early demos. Thanks to the folks at @songpreserve, the original 1981 and 1982 Die Kreuzen demos are now available digitally. These are the early blueprints that would eventually be released officially on the Cows and Beer 7” as well as the self titled LP. The 1981 demo was recorded to help the band book shows, and the 1982 demo was sold by the band at shows and through mail order. While there are no unreleased songs on either of these, it’s great to have these tracks in their earliest forms and hear how they progressed over the years.

Rips of these demos have circulated the internet for a while now, but they always sounded like fourth or fifth generation copies. The reissue sounds fantastic, due in no small part to the expertise of Justin Perkins at @mystery_room_mke. Remastering from old cassettes can be a challenge, but he did a fantastic job of bringing them back to life for the digital age. It also features killer design work by the one and only @stealworks, influenced by his recent “Punk Note” series. Proceeds from all @songpreserve releases go to charity, and for this release, Die Kreuzen has chosen @wcmusic1899, which is Wisconsin’s oldest non-profit community music school.

This is a *digital only* release and I don’t believe there are any plans for a physical release anytime soon. Head on over to your streaming service of choice to hear them.

Ive gone back and forth with punk over the years.  I've always been fond of Cro-mags and even some Angry Somoans here and there.  Definitely can't handle any of the pop-punk stuff and the majority of it just puts me in an awful mood.  One of the more recent bands i've really loved (my version of recent so it's already pretty old I guess) is a band called No. They only have one album to my knowledge titled "treating people like they don't exist" which is just about as cool as you can get for an album title.  It's an absolute nightmare to try and find any info on the band due to their name but I'm pretty sure they did that on purpose.  If you haven't heard it definitely give it a listen.  It has the kind of energy and crazy off the wall quality that I think original punk had way back when it was new and exciting.  I found a great review of it that conveniently has a stream of the album included.  https://cvltnation.com/no-treating-people-like-they-dont-exist-review-full-stream/  super short songs that really can't be compared to anything else i've ever heard. Give it a whirl, you won't regret it.

No ruled! I believe they shared members with (among others) the Shitty Limits (which were also ace.)

I still have No demo in my shelves, which is the same kind of stuff as the LP. One of my bands also shared the stage with them back then and they were how you described them live as well, rather musically unhinged. I loved them.

Have been listening to a ton of Unwound lately - not a band I was into in the 90’s but I’ve really come to appreciate their stuff these last few years. That takes me into stuff like Union of Uranus, Drift, Rorschach, Born Against, One Eyed God Prophecy...... last stuff I pulled out was In/Humanity’s first LP and the first Damad record. Those two I was huge into in the 90’s and have paid very little attention to since then, all of it has held up surprisingly well.

One record I really liked was the Food Not Bombs LP on Anomie Records. Great variety of weird screamo bands with some real heavy shit mixed in.

Shitty Limits were great. Members of that band had done some really cool stuff prior to and following the Limits. Good Throb and Personnel come recommended.

I love this stuff too.  That dense, swirling, quasi-psychedelic riffing and abrasion.  The Bremen/German scene was also ferocious.  The Dagda Threefold is another one when I brainstorm for this arena of hardcore.

^ Acme/Carol/Systral are long time favourites. I seem to have sold my Systral records at some point so I’m scanning discogs to try and re-buy some of those. I also remember that Morser LP being particularly great.

Given the popularity of HHIG/Union of Uranus I’m a little surprised Drift haven’t had some sort of anthology collection. A seven inch, a split 7” and some comp tracks - would make a great one sided LP. Really great band playing very similar stuff. I know there were more, we saw a lot of the Ottawa/Quebec scene roll through Toronto in the 90’s. Born Dead Icons I could never get into as well as From Ashes Rise. But I bet there quite a few other bands that have been forgotten to the wheels of time.....

You might dig Akephal too then, a German band which is kinda overlooked in that genre.

The CD reissue of this has 5 previously unreleased tracks, one being 13 minutes of goof, plus a decent comp track.  The previously unreleased are their best material, minus the goofer.

I didn't like Good Throb, actually. But to each their own, of course.

And while people mentioned Akephal, I spun the LP like 3 weeks ago for the first time in years. It aged rather well in my humble opinion.

Saw Acme one as a 3-piece without the bass player.. crushing, powerful set. Saw Carol after their 7" just came out. Liked the set and picked up their record. Never saw Systral and didn't care too much for Mörser. Another related band was called Stack. They stayed at my place once and I remember we all thought they were assholes so I never bothered to check out their records.

Man, Systral.  The 10".  Floored me.  This sounds dramatic, but that's one of those records you hear for the first time, and it actually stuns you.  The record finishes, and you just sit there in silence for a bit.  I think I wrote them to do a record soon after, but they were locked into Per Koro.

Stack...I don't think I ever appreciated how Rorschachian Stack was. I thought of them as more like Capitalist Casualties than German HC. After listening to their demo, which I'm not sure I'd heard before a couple years ago, it all clicked as a smart hybrid of the two.

I was digging around yesterday, and I heard Linsay for the first time.  A nice surprise.  Related to Lebensreform.
