CHUMBAWAMBA




































http://www.45-revolution.com/images/shop/01486/2.jpg"Never mind the ballots"
Year:  1986
Country:  UK
City:  Leeds
Label:  Oihuka
Format:  CD , LP , cassette
Tracks:  12
Time: 35 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism , anti-war
Genre:  rock
Style:     New Wave      Punk



































First time I saw this album, CHUMBAWAMBA was a band which appeared on TV, radio, magazines... even in the night clubs due its hit "Tubthumping" which became a true top of the tops in 1997. But I had heard something about CHUMBAWAMBA and its relation with anarchist, pacifist and anti-capitalist organizations and even this album had been released in Spain by the basque independent label "Oihuka". So, we were not in front of the typical mainstream pop group. I decided to buy this (my first) CHUMBAWAMBA album and I wasn´t dissapointed at all. The band keep the roots and principles from its beggining, but at the same time they can to show us their talent to make very good songs which sound totally new wave, synth-pop, folk or punk. It was released by "Agit Prop" in 1986 and three years after, in 1989, by "Oihuka Records" only on cassette format. The band started its activity in 1982 as a musical and political collective mostly influenced by the punk band CRASS and also strictly musical by other post-punk bands like The Damned, PIL, Joy Division or The Fall. After some years the band took influenes from folk, pop and rock.

"Slaves to conformity"
Year:  2012
Country:  Saudi Arabaian

Label:  Third Eye Grind rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  10
Time:  32 min.
Lyrical themes:  politics , social issues
Genre:  rock
Style:     Grindcore







































Three young musicians from three cities next to the Persian Gulf (Arabian Saudi) decided in 2005 to start a grindcore band in the vein of early Napalm Death, Agathocles, Archagathus, Nasum Cripple Bastards, etc. but with strong leimotiv to don´t sound "lo-fi" but the opposite, to try with effort to sound with a medium or even high technical level, something like Assück (for example). In 2006 CREATIVE WASTE recorded an EP in a limited edition but the result was not the expected for the band. After few years the group made finally this album "Slaves to conformity" in 2012, which is considered at date for many peole their best work. Despite they live in Arabian Saudi and to make an style so minority like grindcpre, CREATIVE WASTE has got certain popularity grace to its high musical quality and also to its intelligent lyrics, far from topics and "typics".

City:  Stockholm
Label:  Burning heart rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  23 min.
Genre:  rock

The name "Raised Fist" came as an idea from the Rage Against the Machine song "Know Your Enemy", where part of the lyrics are as follows: "Born with an insight and a raised fist..." The band has become more successful over the years, with its aggressive music and vocals today considered as one of the most energetic live acts to be found. As an example of their rise, the band played at the large Scandinavian Roskilde Festival in 2004. Burning Heart Records, the band's former record label, houses many other Swedish punk and hardcore bands. The band currently consists of five members, where the latest newcomer is the drummer Matte Modin (formerly of Dark Funeral). Raised Fist recently signed a two album contract with Epitaph Records and started working on the first of these in November 2013.

SKATENIGS













































"Stupid people shoud'nt breed"
Year:  1992
Country:  US
City:  Austin , TX
Label:  Alternative Tentacles
Format:  CD
Tracks:  9
Time:  40 min.
Genre:  rock , electronic
Style:    Industrial     Metal    Punk


































THE SKATENIGS began their career as associates of Ministry and its stable of guest musicians during the late 80s. Singer Phil Owens appeared on the Revolting Cocks "Beers, Steers and Queers" album, and managed to get the Skatenigs a spot on the Revolting Cocks/Mentors tour. After the drug-fueled decadence of that experience, the band recorded the "Chemical Imbalance" EP and shopped for a label. "Alternative Tentacles" came knocking, so the band signed on to release their debut "Stupid People Shouldn't Breed". Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen produced the album, but refused to take credit for it, beginning a rift between himself and Owens. The music was a catchy mix of punk, heavy metal and industrial, but it never really caught on and soon they found themselves off of "Alternative Tentacles". By 1994, tensions were quite high between Owens and Jourgensen, but the band managed to release What a Mangled Web We Leave on Red Force and toured behind it. The band remained rather inactive during the second half of the decade, reappearing in 2000 with a different lineup. Ministry wrote a song about all the bad blood between the group of musicians who used to gravitate around Jourgensen, and many believe that Owens was one of the song's major targets. Owens denied this claim, instead trying to focus any attention he received on the new Skatenigs album, which still has not arrived. THE SKATENIGS disbanded in 1995. (~ Bradley Torreano).

DAHMER













































"Our worst recordings"
Year:  2007

City:  Quebec
Label:  Mortvillerec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  84
Time:  90 min.
Lyrical themes: politics , humor , gore
Genre:  rock
Style:      Grindcore
























Grindcore band from Quebec City, Canada. Active from 1995 to 2000. Their songs were about mass murderers, but also about humorous issues and politics or social issues. The band recorded few long albums and several ep´s and splits next to Agathocles, Carcass Grinder, Supression, Denak and others. This compilation is probably its bigger work with 84 songs, almost all its discography. No doubt the best way to know Dahmer from its low-fi beggining until better songs.
