Antisect-Out from the void 7"
Well i got some sore throat and i'am not in the mood for much talking but there is no need for much talking since the records are some classics:
Antisect formed in Daventry, Northants in 1981."Out from the void" was their second record (the first one was "In Darkness There is No Choice" on Spiderleg), it was recorded in September of 1985 and released in the end of the year on Endangered Musik and reached number seven in the indie singles chart.
Both tracks of the record are untitled but the lyrics are printed on the back cover so you can see what they deal about.Antisect disbanded in 1987, Pete Lyons (founding member) and Lawrence Windle (member in the last Antisect line up) formed Kulturo
Hellbastard-They brought death 7"
Hellbastard was the first band that used the term "crust". Unfortunately their later records were predictable metal far from the crusty roots of "Rippercrust" and "Hate militia" demos. "They brought death" was released by the German label Temple of Love Records in 1988 on gold vinyl. "They brought death" was the released after "Heading for internal darkness", Some steps to the metal territory have been made but the crust feeling is still there..maybe their last crust candlelight in the upcoming metal night era...
Deviated Instinct-Welcome to the orgy 7"
The term "stenchcore" was used for first time by Deviated Instinct. "Welcome to the orgy" is another crust diamond, it was one of the first Peaceville releases, it came out in 1987 following the legendary "Terminal filth stenchcore" and "Tip of the iceberg" tapes and delivers dark, primitive metal influenced crust. These tracks appear in "Terminal filth.." demo, cover artwork was made by Mid,the cover folds out into a very nice poster. "Welcome to the orgy" was included in "Definitive Instinct" (1991) and "Welcome to the Orgy" cd compilations (both on Peaceville)
DI contributed tracks in several compilations such as "A vile peace" lp(Peaceville),"Hardcore Holocaust vol 2"(Strange Fruit), "Consolidation" 7" and others, they disbanded in 1991 and Mid and Charlie formed Bait and Spine Wrench
Amebix-Who's the enemy & Winter
"Who's the Enemy" was another post from the very first days. This was the first Amebix release on vinyl, released in 1982 on Spiderleg Records, this four track jewel was originally set as a 2 song so the insert included lyrics only for "Carnage" and "No gods,no masters".
"Winter" was the #100 post of this blog in summer '07 (a classic ep for the first hundred of posts), it came out in 1983 and was another crust treasure. Both tracks came out in limited numbers and soon became legendary and being repeatedly bootleged.
Spiderleg relased also "No sanctuary", it was a label run by Flux of Pink Indians members and these three releases included in "Beginning of the End" cd. Alternative Tentacles recently released "No Sanctuary The Spiderleg Recordings" offering these early Amebix gems in remastered versions.
