Please help me out. I´m desperately searching for the lyrics of the song `Oh my god´ by MORBID HUMOR. This early 80ies anarcho punk band shared members with legandary ANTI-SYSTEM.
They appeared on a split 7" w/ ANTI-SYSTEM (Reconciliation Records, 198?), on the `DAFFODILS TO THE DAFFODILS HERE'S THE DAFFODILS´ Comp Lp (Pax Records, 1984)
and on the `BREAK THE SILENCE´ tape comp (Break the silence 198?).

Did the split 7" w/ ANTI-SYSTEM come with a lyric sheet originally? Because my copy doesn´t have one :-(

`Oh my god´ (pt 1 and 2) is one of the best punk ballads I ever heard. I´m going to post the split 7" very soon!!

Thx for your help

I have tons of new recently released records. Like I said before I won´t upload brand new releases anymore. If you like my reviews go buy them or go download them somewhere else.
Ok here we go:
The first album I have to tell you about is the debut release of BRUCEXCAMPBELL! Holy mother of the sucker in the clouds! Another overwhelming release on RSR. Old school grindcore like LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER or CATHETER. Don´t cry about the parting of INSECT WARFARE, give this four youngsters a try, they will comfort you perfectly. This Cd left me speechless. You can witness the practise of the song `Shredded life´ here. The layout of the Cd (-only *thumbs down*) is a bit weak, but the music compensates this fact more then effective. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next on my list of incredible good new releases is the `As the world burns´ album of the infamous German grindcore band KEITZER. Man what a progress these guys made!! PHOBIA styled grindcore meets `90s-metal-edged hardcore Bremen-style´. Can somebody get my point? Their new album is much better than their old stuff and the production of `As the world burns´ is awsome as well (What do you expect when an album has been recorded where bands like SYSTRAL and MÖRSER have been produced?). Containig a coverversion from NO POLICE STATE??? Hahahaha don´t let them fool you...!!! ;-)
The Cd has been out for a while now but finally this brutal bastard has been released on vinyl by REACT WITH PRTOTEST. If you like technical high speed madness with tons of doublebass and a wall of sound, this is the record you should check out. On Tour in Germany w/ MINION in January 2009! Check them out if you´ve got the chance.

Let´s change down a little bit. Ah, who am I kidding...? Up next is the brand new split 5" of everybodys darlings from Australia EXTORTION and once famous RUPTURE. What a promising team up you might think! Well... Okay the EXTORTION side serves what you expect. Very pissed in your face blasts. Highspeed powerviolence like on their previous records. A very short attack which is over shortly after it started. 3 songs, 3 minutes. But I have to say that EXTORTION did better before. These 3 songs don´t have what their other records had. Theses 3 songs sound like outtakes to me. Definately not as good as their older stuff. Oh well, the RUPTURE side of this split 5": I don´t have to tell you how good their 1st 7" and their 10" are. Legendary stuff! But what is this? Strange, annoying, boring punk rock. There is just one good aspect on this side of the record: Just one short song. I can´t stand it!! Decide for your self if you need a very short record because of a good band that has done better before and a legendary band that embaresses themself? Maybe I´m going to upload this 5" however, so that you don´t have to buy it...

Some `news´:
- The CAPITALIST CASUALTIES / HELLNATION Split Lp has finally seen the light of day. 11 years in the making SOUND POLLUTION unleashed this beast recently. I ve ordered it but I didn´t get it yet so I don´t know how it is but I guess it will kick ass big time.
- TOXIC REVOLUTION (featuring blog member Chris) finished their new recordings. The new songs will appear on a split Lp w/ MAGNICIDE from Singapur. This killer record will be released on TVG Records, so watch out. I already heard the new songs and I assure you that the Lp will hit you like a rock slide. The new tracks are absolutely amazing! Brutal shit!
- The new PHOBIA album `22 random acts of violence´ will surprise you if you haven´t heard it yet. Don´t worry their are awesome as ever!! I can´t wait to get the DVD they are working on!

SCHLEIMKEIM - Abfallprodukte der Gesellschaft

Right now I´m reading "Satan, kannst du mir noch mal verzeihen". A book about Otze Ehrlich, the man behind the legendary Punk band SCHLEIMKEIM, from the German Democratic Republic. For you dull fuckers: Eastern Germany has been united with West Germany in 1989. I have to say, the more I read about Otze Ehrlich the more I come to the conclusion that he was just an antisocial drug and alcohol addict with a violent temper. Some of the contemporary witness who have been interviewed for this book characterize these attributes and his attitude as PUNK. Well I have different view on Punk but that not the subject here. But the book is the reason why I got the Lp from my record shelf again and realized how great this album still is. I haven´t heard it for years so it was like meeting an old friend. I immediately remembered the simple German lyrics and sang along.
SCHLEIMKEIM have been a great band. Basically it was just Otze with frequently changing band members. Otze wrote (almost?) all the music and he did an incredible good job here! Catchy Deutschpunk, raw and pissed. The songs on this Lp were written during 1985 - 1992 but they were recorded in 1992 after the GDR and West Germany became one nation. They still have the charm of the 80ies in my opinion. It was the first SCHLEIMKEIM Lp that were suitable for everyone. The recordings for their very first Lp called "DDR von unten" were smuggled into West Germany, pressed on Lp by Aggressive Rockproduktionen and only about 5 copies made their illegal way back into Eastern Germany. SCHLEIMKEIM even had to use the alias name of SAUKERLE for this album. You have to understand the policies of the former nation GDR to understand why Punk should have been banned from their streets. That subject is far too complex to explain it here properly.
Back to "Abfallprodukte der Gesellschaft": You don´t have to understand the German lyrics to love this album. It´s really catchy like I said before. Check out their hits like "Mit dem Knüppel in der Hand", "Mach dich doch selbst kaputt" and "Satan". Some people don´t like the way Otze squeaks or even growls sometimes when he sings, but you´ll get used to it. It´s kinda funny. A real classic Deutschpunk album!
R.I.P. Otze!

SCHLEIMKEIM - Abfallprodukte der Gesellschaft

CASH sayz:

My tomcat CASH said I have to tell you that "Prowler in the yard" is the best fucking PIG DESTROYER album EVER! Since he´s living with me he heard that album about a hundred times. And he knows more about brutal music than you´ll ever do!

STUPIDS - Violent nun Lp

Last week I got the new 7" from the heroes of my adolescence: THE STUPIDS. Although I don´t like reunions at all I gave it a try anyway. I should have left it, it disappointed me of course. To dry my tears I had to turn on their awsome stuff from their glory days. I guess you´ll agree with me when I say that their "Peruvian vacation" Lp is their best output ever but you can get that Lp at many other blogs. This is the Lp repress of their 1st 7" called "Violent nun" from 1985. I digitize it because along with the awsome songs from the 7" come some incredible good songs from their "Leave your ears behind" demo Session. I took the liberty to modify these songs with some bass boosts, so that they sound even better. Very powerfull and fast but yet melodic UK hardcore. The songs from the demo session are backdated to 1984 an they kick ass totally.
I could write pages and pages about the legendary STUPIDS but I won´t because everythings has been said already. Along with HERESY, ELECTRO HIPPIES, RIPCORD and NAPALM DEATH they have been one of the most famous hardcore acts from Great Britain in the mid 80s. Ah, that reminds me that I wanted to upload the JAILCELL RECIPIES Lp "Energy in an empty tank world" for months now...
Now grab your skateboards and thrash some shit while listening to the STUPIDS like I did 20 years ago!
