Anarcrust - (s/t 7")

Hi to all from the new member of this blog & a shout-out to 7inchcrust for adding me to it. I'll be posting - rather infrequently, I'm afraid - some releases I ripped & scanned myself & which are hopefully of interest to people reading this blog. You'll notice that I'm not particularly knowledgeable regarding what I post, so I'd appreciate any info one would be willing to offer on a release/band featured here - please post a comment, it's good karma!...
The first of these is Anarcrust's self-titled 7" from dog-knows-when (mid-to-late '90s, I guess). The band operated from Rotterdam, NL & was featured in Skuld's "Whispers" compilation (that's how I came to hear of them) & in Profane Existence's "Think Globally, Act Locally" compilation. Although I didn't dig the track featured in Whispers (& don't remember their track in the other compilation), I have to say that I liked the 7" in question: a sound all of their own, if not all that groundbreaking... Apart from that, the band is a complete mystery to me (& I guess to many other people, as there's practically no info on the web related to them; even the mighty Women In Heavy Music have given up on them). Apparently, they recorded a couple of studio albums ( "Freedom Of Coalescence" & "Progression Of Decline") & a live one ("Smooth As A Motherfucker: Live In Maribor 1.3.95").

This self-released 7" came in a gatefold cover with beautiful artwork. The left pocket of the cover contains an inlay, the right one contains the record (white vinyl with entirely black labels), & the cover opens up (gate-un-folds?...) to the lyrics of the two tracks. That's it. (Except maybe for one thing: does anyone else thing the band member in the far right looks somewhat too much like chucky the killer doll?...)

I've got the 'Coalescence' LP, which I'm planning to upload soon if you want / need it.

Thanks for sharing this too, I've not heard it before :)

I'd love to hear it, unfortunately the Anarcrust records don't quite do the distro rounds any more (well, they can still be found here & there, I guess), so I've never heard it... Thanks for the kind remark, too!

actualy, the bandmember on the far right is Saskia and she was a very good friend of mine.Also Bart the singer. Anarcrust split during a tour in Austria in I believe 92. I got loads of stuff of em (lots of livetapes).
Nice to see them on the web (finally). Ive lost track of alle of them.
cheers

Yoast said...
