SKULL-Skull-(Self Released-Italy-1987)

Astonishing demo by this Italian band hailing from Sardinia and playing a raw form of speed metal, they formed in 1983 and disbanded in 1996. It seems they have released a full-length album in 2012 named I Saw The Fire.
This is definitely an exquisite example of the First Wave Of Italian Heavy Metal, probably pretty rare too.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-AITEIN-ROCK-(JW/R Rec-Raippa Recs-Finland-1994)

This tape seems to be the documentation of a gig happened in Lahti(Finland) on the 8th of May 1994.
All Finnish bands, the most of them from Lahti.They play a low-fi rock`n` roll with different variations/influences. 
On the cover sleeve, there are listed 2 labels JW/R recs and Raippa Records, it doesn`t  seem very easy to find any info about those small and very probably Finnish labels.
Get it if you are into weird rock, underground bands, and lo-fi recordings.
ps-only for Finnish people, in the cover sleeve, appears a note with few lines about this recording, if you get more info from it then please leave a comment.
Enjoy it.

No Sanctuary n25 + No Sanctuary n27-(Resistance Productions-Switzerland-1994)

Number 25 and number 27 of this Swiss punk zine released by the label Resistance Productions.I already posted few issues of this fanzines and lots of other productions  released by this small yet very lively and totally DIY and anarchist label based in Zurich first and then relocated to Biel. 
It was managed by Fritze F.T.S., Pablo Van Paz ,Sämy Soyahead, Oli and Lara.They were active from 1988 to 1998.
In these small fanzines lots of interesting articles,interviews,reviews and more political messages.
Two great tools to research the amazing international punk scene of that era.
Enjoy it.

PLEASANT VALLEY CHILDREN/GENERIC-Who Needs Love To Have Any Fun/Join The Cospiracy-(Dementia Records-Usa-1992)

Classic split 10inch with the demos,recorded in the 80s by those two brutal punk bands.
Generic is an hardcore punk band from Newcastle, UK, active from 1985 to 1989.In this demo they assault us with spazzed out vocals and raw hardcore punk.Micky and Sned from this band went on to form the amazing One By One.

On the other side we`ll find an uncompromising attack by Pleasant Valley Children. Hailing from Leeds, PVC plays a kind of chaos-core with the demonically possessed vocals of Pig, there’s never a danger that this is going to turn into a pleasant or safe listening experience.
The vinyl comes with a folded sheet with lyrics and info.
A great 10 inch for punk lovers.
Enjoy it.
