Civilised Society? - Violence Still Sucks! 2xCD

Double CD! This double CD reissue contains their two 1980s albums ("Scrap Metal" and "Violence Sucks") plus 4 bonus tracks.

For those unfortunate enough not to know Civilised Society?, they were an anarchopunk band from Yorkshire with Hammy from Peaceville and the Instigators as one of the singers. In fact, they had three singers at some point, one female and two males, which gave the band a sort of Chumbawamba-like quality. I like to think that if Chumba had been into hardcore and metal, they would have done something not unlike Civilised Society?

Civilised Society? played punk music that was fused with metal, yet had brilliant lyrics.

Their first record would had been through Bluurg, but something that has not been explained yet happened between the band and the label which led them to Manic Ear Records instead. With a budget of two hundred, and forty-eight dollars, the band recorded their "Scrap Metal" album. Some say it marked the new era for the 'Thrash' genre. It was described as 'Virtually Heavy Metal Music, played at Punk speed with meaningful lyrics. And even a touch of 'harmony' thrown in!'

They quickly recorded and released their second album titled "Violence Sucks!" on the same Manic Ears label. The band split in 1987, playing their final gig at a very special Christmas party on 23/12/87 in Adam and Eves in Leeds where it all began for them.

R.M.F.C. - Hive - Volumes 1 & 2 LP

We "invented" the DEVO-CORE so here is more for you freaks! Child prodigy Buz Clatworthy's latest and greatest project! Features some very tight riffs and some of the catchiest song writing we've heard in a while. Reminds me of something that would fit right in to the NWI scene. Totally punk and totally weird at the same time. DEVO is an obvious band familiar, but there’ve been many…

Cursed - Two LP

Cursed - Two LP

With Cursed Chris Colohan continued to bat 1000, following up the most excellent Left For Dead, Ruination and The Swarm. On "Two" Cursed slowed things down a bit, dialed in the songwriting and created a masterpiece of dark hardcore with some extremely memorable riffage, all while managing to maintain (if not surpass) the intensity of "One." Undoubtedly one of the best hardcore records of…

War//Plague - Into The Depths LP

War//Plague - Into The Depths LP

Dark, brooding metallic crust punk is what Minneapolis’s War//Plague are all about, bringing to mind such bands as Amebix, Axegrinder, Deviated Instinct, Extinction Of Mankind and fellow Minneapolis crusties Misery - a sound that is as every inch as dark and grim as the images the band’s name. The band mix up doomy and darkly atmospheric clean guitar driven passages and chugging mid…
