Post Regiment were a Polish hardcore punk band. They formed in Warsaw in 1986. In the early days, Post Regiment had a much slower pace and more conventional singing style with vocalist Darek "Tolek" Gracki. By 1987, he left and Dominika "Nika" Domczyk took over on vocals. The band developed a faster, melodic punk sound by their 1992 self-titled first album. Their second album, Czarzly, was released in 1995 and adopted a faster crust punk sound with rawer vocals and d-beat-style drumming. Their final album, Tragiedia wg Post Regiment ("Tragedy According To Post Regiment") was released in 1998 on Profane Existence records in the USA and Skuld releases in Europe. It was an album of hardcore punk songs by the Polish band Tragiedia, longtime friends of Post Regiment who broke up without ever putting out a record. Post Regiment had a fairly unusual sound in hardcore punk, with some unusual elements like melodic singing, Eastern European modes, instrumentals and the occasional synthesizer. The band broke up in 2001, although they still practice from time to time. Album Death Before The Metal, released in 2007, contains songs recorded between 1988 and 1990.

SORE THROAT

Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Manic Ears
Format:  CD
Tracks:  60
Time:  30 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Crust Punk


























According to the band: "This recording is guaranteed 100% racist, sexist, homophobic, straight edge, carniverous, New York hardcore free! oh dear, that might make the sales drop". Sore Throat were a short lived yet important band in the later 80's UK grindcore, noisecore, hardcore and punk movement which featured members of Doom, Deviated Instinct and other crust punk bands. Sore Throat formed in 1987 in Yorkshire, UK as a crust punk, hardcore punk, and grindcore act with the initial line up as Rich Militia (vocals), Brian "Bri" Talbot (guitar), John Doom (bass) and Nick Royles (drums). They are known as one of the first bands to give rise to and play in the style of "noisecore". Though now largely forgotten, they were a key part of the hardcore/grindcore movement of the mid-late 1980s in the United Kingdom and were commonly known for their "we don't fucking care" attitude, harsh humour and mockery in their music about other contemporary bands and society. They were sometimes seen as a parody band and a drunk political punk band. They were also one of the first bands to heavily incorporate samples in their music.

SIEGE







































"drop dead"
Year:  1984
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Relapse
Format:  CD,  EP, cassette
Tracks: 12
Time:  20 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Hardcore





























Drop Dead is an album originally released in 1984 by Weymouth hardcore band Siege. It is the only album the band ever released. The original "album" was a self-released demo cassette with six songs recorded at Radiobeat studios in Boston and produced by Lou Giordano. There were also three songs recorded for Pushead's Cleanse the Bacteria hardcore compilation. When the album was finally given a proper (i.e., non-bootleg) release on CD by Relapse Records in 1994, the three Cleanse the Bacteria tracks were added to the original six demo tape songs. Deep Six Records then re-released the album on 12" vinyl in 2004, with the identical tracklist to the Relapse reissue, being the original six songs with the same three compilation tracks added. These nine tracks were the only things recorded by Siege until they reformed in 1991 with Seth Putnam of Anal Cunt on lead vocals and recorded a demo tape from which one song, "Cameras", was released in 2004 on the 13 Bands Who Think You're Gay compilation album. A total of four songs were recorded in this session, the final three of which did not appear until their release in 2014 as the Lost Session '91 7" on Patac Records. However, two separate additional reissues of the original Siege material done on lp in 2006 and 2009 by the Deep Six record label contained an additional three tracks, "Two-Faced," "Trained To Kill," and "Questions Behind The Wall". These tracks are unreleased tracks from the original Drop Dead sessions from 1984. In 2015, Deep Six reissued the album on LP and CD, including all three bonus tracks.

LEATHERFACE
































"horsebox"
Year:  2000
Country:  UK
City:  Sunderland
Label:  Better Youth Organization
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  35 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Pop        Punk






































Leatherface are a punk rock band from Sunderland, UK, fronted by Frankie Stubbs. Trouser Press called them "England's finest, most exciting punk band of the 90s" and The Guardian has called them "the greatest British punk band of the modern era". Formed in August 1988 by Frankie Stubbs and Dickie Hammond (also of HDQ), Leatherface released four full-length albums before their initial split in 1993. Third album Mush was, according to Allmusic, "one of the most intense records of the 90s, with some of the fiercest playing and song dynamics.. considered one of the best albums of the decade." The band split in late 1993, releasing a posthumous mini album (The Last) the following year – but reformed in 1998, after the death of bass player Andy Crighton (also of Snuff). Four more albums followed between 1999 and 2012. Leatherface's music has been described as a cross between Hüsker Dü and Fugazi, a notable element being Stubbs' rasping, "gravelly" vocals. The lyrics often feature far-fetched similes, metaphors, word play and obscure allusions. Though never attaining much more than a cult following outside their native country, the band have been cited as an influence by higher-profile punk acts such as Hot Water Music and Dillinger Four. "Rubber Factory Records" released a tribute album to Leatherface in 2008, featuring 41 tracks by over 35 artists from several different countries who were influenced by the band, including Hot Water Music and The Sainte Catherines. Their cover of "Can't Help Falling In Love With You" was played in the final episode of the film "Sons of Anarchy".

REZILLOS
































"can't stand the Rezilloz"
Year:  1978
Country:  UK
City:  Edinburgh
Label:   Sire
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  30 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk  Rock































The Rezillos are a punk/new wave band formed in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1976. Although emerging at the same time as other bands in the punk rock movement, the Rezillos did not share the nihilism or social commentary of their contemporaries, but instead took a more light-hearted approach to their songs, preferring to describe themselves at the time as "a New Wave beat group".[1] Their songs are heavily influenced by 1950s rock and roll, 1960s English beat music and garage rock, early 1970s glam rock, and recurring lyrical themes of science fiction and B movies, influences that mirrored those of US bands the Cramps, the B-52s, and X who were starting out at the same time. The Rezillos' biggest hit in their home country was the UK Top 20 single "Top of the Pops" in 1978, but they are best known outside the UK for their cover version of "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight", which featured on the soundtrack to Jackass: The Movie in 2002. Since the Rezillos recorded it, the song has been covered by other punk bands, including Youth Brigade and Murphy's Law.

Time:  38 min.
Genre:  rock , electronic

Seminal post-punk band who have gone through numerous internal conflicts and line-up changes, as well as a variety of different styles and sounds. Formed in Notting Hill in 1979 by Jaz Coleman, Geordie Walker, Youth and Paul Ferguson, their dark experimental style provided one of the main steps on from punk rock. Massively influential on a range of different styles of music, they pioneered the industrial rock style with 90's Extremities, Dirt And Various Repressed Emotions. The band have inspired many industrial bands including Nine Inch Nails, Prong and Ministry. They have been cited by Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails 's leader, who mentioned his interest for their early material, saying that he studied their music. Al Jourgensen of Ministry has presented himself as a "big fan" of the group. Godflesh's Justin Broadrick was particularly influenced by their early releases containing dub versions. The band has also been cited by alternative music acts such as My Bloody Valentine and LCD Soundsystem. Shoegazing guitarist and composer Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine mentioned the band and praised more specifically Geordie's touch that he described as "this effortless playing producing a monstruous sound". In 2002, James Murphy of electro-punk band LCD Soundsystem sampled the music of "Change" on his debut single "Losing My Edge".
