OASIS












































http://soundanalysis.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/oasis-be-here-now.jpg"Be here now"
Year:  1997
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Creation rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  72 min.
Genre:   rock
Style:    Pop

























"Be Here Now" is the third studio album by the English rock band Oasis, released in August 1997. The album was highly anticipated by both music critics and fans after the band's worldwide success with their 1994 debut, "Definitely Maybe" and its 1995 follow-up, "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?". After the huge success of the first 2 mass disks, many people thought it would record a third album OASIS much more melodic, soft and mainstream. In fact the band did not change course and continued in the traditional British pop started in the 60's by the "British invasion": The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Creation and Small Faces. All that changed in this "be here now" is that the sound was much more dirty, distorted and full of "flaws" sound. Unlike the super productions in the 80's music, OASIS and other bands in the '90s became the noisier, rawner and expressly scruffy production. Obviously they are a pop band, not experimental music. They never were and never will be. They claimed in interviews that his adolescence worshiped The Beatles and The Jam, the typical British sound, scooters and youth working classe. OASIS were not handsome, not nice ... were and are normal people.

ANTI--WHITE BASTARDS













































https://ia802508.us.archive.org/7/items/AntiWhiteBastards/an.jpg"Anti White bastards - Compilation"
Year:  1991
Country:  several
Label:  Korm Plastics
Format:  cassette
Tracks:  17
Time:  76 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:   Industrial    Ambient    Noise













































From the cassette liner notes : "This compilation is directed against racist tendencies in the 'network' in general and the activities of AWB/Terre Blanche in particular. Musicians from the USA, Europe and South Africa have joined in a struggle against what we think is a mis-use of the network system of audio information exchange. Available from us is an article from the Chemical Castration magazine which gives insight in the ideas of AWB". This cassette (tape) was the result of the effort of the union between 2 musicians quite important in the Industrial / Noise scene: Kapotte Muziek (Netherlands) and PBK (USA). I think both represent that people who like these musical styles (noise, industrial, experimental, ambient, etc.) but who detest the fascism and racism leadered by infamous "artists" like Boyd Rice, Brighter Death Now, Folkstrom and sadly much other. Apart the positive ideological element of the compilation, strictly musical the tape is very interesting because is not close in only one style but very open-minded to different experimentations and forms to see and make this genre generally called as a : "non-music".

BIOHAZARD





















































http://static.orenet.co.uk/yperano//files/images/BIOHAZARD%20State%20of%20the%20World%20Address%20CD.jpg"State of the world address"
Year:  1994
Country:  US
City:  Brooklyn , NY
Label:  Warner Bros
Format:  CD , LP , Cassette
Tracks:  14
Time:  60 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:   Hardcore    Metal     Rap
























"State of the World Address" is the third studio album by band BIOHAZARD. Sen Dog has a guest performance on the song "How It Is".  I think we are in front of one of the best hardcore albums of the 90's decade. When the band recorded it in 1994 all the HC/punk became surprised for the new and modern way to make hardcore. After the periode which almost all bands sounded  faster, "crossover" and closer to thrash structures, BIOHAZARD was the first band in the scene to incorporate Rap elements in its music. Important also to mention how sounded the new drums structures and its "broken" rhythms. I remember when I bought this album and how I was... totally surprised. Perhaps there were another few bands which sounded similar to BIOHAZARD: Madball, Sick Of It All... not more. The fact is nowadays the album sound still modern and is highly recommended to listen to it.

BANE

















































https://ia902508.us.archive.org/16/items/bane-bane2001_2001/bane.pngGive Blood + Holding This Moment
Year:  2001
Country:  US
City:  Worcester , MA
Label:  Equal Vision rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  19
Time:  60 min.
Lyrical themes:   Straight Edge
Genre:  rock
Style:    Hardcore





























GOOD CLEAN FUN “Give blood“ – When this band is mentioned normally people say they were a “joke” band, but in actuality they used irony and a pen as their weapon. Another fun listen if you’ve never heard them before. They are not the typical extremist "straight edge" band that makes this ideology (optimistic attitude in life) into something intolerant, close-minded, conservative, reactionary and sometimes (few) even violent. I think GOOD CLEAN FUN follows in the footsteps of the first bands in the local scene of Washington (Minor Threat, Teen Idles, SOA, etc..). And not only are a pacifist group, but they also write lyrics with good sense of humor, irony and jokes. Musically make pure and simple hardcore with some slow parts more "new school". This recording include the album plus an EP. Is good.


EQUAL VISION RECORDS is an independent hardcore / punk label founded in the early 90's by Ray Cappo solely to distribute releases from his band, Shelter.  In 1992 the label was sold to former Youth Of Today roadie, former "Revelation Records" employee and "Equal Vision" label manager Steve Reddy and began releasing music from a variety of other bands.

MADBALL













































https://ia902504.us.archive.org/34/items/madball-newyork/mad.jpg"Set it off"
Year:  1992
Country:  US
City:  Brooklyn , NY
Label:  Roadrunner rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  14
Time:  38 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:    Hardcore    Metal    Rap






























The "New York Hard-Core" band MADBALL originated back in the late 80s, as a side project of legendary NYHC outfit Agnostic Front (Where none other than AF’s frontman Roger Miret would let his little brother Freddy “Madball” Cricien take the microphone on lead vocals during AF shows). After releasing the “Ball of Destruction” single in 1989, the buzz around the streets was the question of when was Madball going to play next gave birth to an early version of the band playing live on other bills than just AF shows. It wasn’t until 1991 when Madball truly hit their stride, when the lineup of Freddy Cricien on vocals, guitarists Matt Henderson and Vinnie Stigma, drummer Will Shepler, and bassist Hoya Roc of Dmize joined forces. The new version of the band (not just all AF members) quickly recorded and released an EP called Droppin’ Many Suckas in 1992, which eventually led to the band signing with Roadrunner in 1994. By releasing a pair of straight-ahead hardcore full-lengths (1994’s Set It Off and 1996’s Demonstrating My Style) and touring steadily, the band built a sizeable fan base outside their hometown. Consisting of Cricien, Henderson, Hoya, and new drummer John Lafatta, the band recorded Look My Way, which was released in the spring of 1998. Hold It Down followed two years later. For the past three years Madball has come out with a CD evey year Best of Madball in 2003, N.Y.H.C. EP in 2004, in , & what many consider their finest album yet, Legacy in 2005.

YOUTH OF TODAY











































http://vol9.music-bazaar.com/album-images/vol9/489/489614/2320273-big/Break-Down-The-Walls-cover.jpg
"Break down the walls"
Year:  1986
Country:  US
City:  Brookyn , NY
Label:  Revelation rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  28 min.
Lyrical themes:  Straight Edge
Genre:  rock
Style:    Hardcore


























Arguably one of the leaders of the second wave of straightedge in the mid-'80s, Youth of Today was a New York-based band started by ex-Violent Children members Ray Cappo on vocals and John Porcelly on guitar. Rounding out their lineup in 1985 with Graham Philips on bass and Darren Pesce on drums, Youth of Today recorded and released their debut EP, Can't Close My Eyes, on Positive Force, a well-known straightedge mainstay. Philips and Pesce exited shortly thereafter, and lineup changes abounded until a five-piece settled long enough to record the band's first full-length offering, 1986's Break Down the Walls. Again, the band had more lineup changes after the release and subsequent tour for Break Down the Walls, and in 1988 a four-piece Youth of Today consisting of Cappo, Porcelly, Walter Schreifels on bass, and Sammy Siegler on drums went into the studio to record their follow-up full-length, We're Not in This Alone (1988). By 1990 Youth of Today had decided to call it a day and released a farewell 7" EP on Revelation (soon to become the leading light in the next wave of straightedge). Now known as Ray 2 Day, Cappo formed the Krishna-core band Shelter, which Porcelly eventually joined as well. In 2010 the band returned until nowadays (2014).

"We are not in this alone"

Lyrical themes:   Straight Edge

Musically this second album is identical to mythical "Break down the walls", but is less bright, was recorded with substandard conditions and has less force. About the personal evolution of Ray Cappo (vocals) what can we say? in 1988 he claimed to be Buddhist, to make yoga, gymnastics and be totally intolerant with people who drink alcohol, smoke or eat meat. I personally find this position as totally absurd, nonsense and I do not know what is its relationship to "straight edge" ideology invented by Minor Threat in 1982. Bands like Minor Threat and other first generation of "straight edge" spoke about optimism, pacifism and tolerance (7 seconds, SOA, Teen Idles, etc..).

RED ALERT










































https://ia902504.us.archive.org/24/items/redalert-redalert-redalert/AlbumArt.jpg"Wearside"
Year:  1999
Country:  UK
City:  Sunderland
Label:  DSS rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  14
Time:  48 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:   Punk   Rock

































Oi! band formed in Sunderland around May of 1979. The original line up was: Steve “Cast Iron” Smith (vocals), Tony Van Frater (Guitar), Gaz Stuart (bass) and Dona (drums). Self released a four track EP entitled “Third And Final,” which had been their demo, in an edition of 250 copies. This EP was re-released in the mid 90s as “Border Guards” on the french label "Combat Rock".  After 20 years and several albums of simple Oi! music of average quality and a sound like a lot of bands of the same style, RED ALERT recorded this wonderful masterpiece entitled "Wearside" in 1999. Personally I think that is definitely the best album of all RED ALERT discography. It is pure and simple punk, but they added mild Hard Rock influences and a very original and powerful sound in the guitars. Almost nobody knows this album, most have heard the "We've got the power", like myself at first... but I had the good fortune to run into this marvel. Highly recommended
