MARERIDT-...Här Börjar Helvetet -(Plague Bearer Records-Denmark-2004)

Great cassette by this short-lived band from Denmark, apparentely they have out only 2 releases.
As the subtitle says you`ll find here 9 tracks of pure Raw Hardcore D-beat Crust, well played and well recorded too.It came out with a lyric insert.
Plague Bearer Records is a punk label from Copenhagen, Denmark, I am not sure if it is still active.
Enjoy the fast D-beat Crust.

STRATFORD MERCENARIES-Live-Demo 1-06/07.02.98-The Victoria Inn Derby 08.03.99-(Self Released-UK-1999)

This is the demo by legendary Stratford Mercenaries, a superband formed by Gary Buckley already involved with the band Dirt, Philip Barker involved also with The Buzzcocks/ Lack Of  Knowledge and Steve Ignorant of Crass.
On the side B of this tape we find a professional studio recording made in 1998 and the side A  offers us a good live recording of their gig at the Victoria Inn Derby in 1999.
Strange enough this tape is not listed on their actual webpage where you can check lots of good videos, discography, gig list and more interesting stuff.
Enjoy it.

NO SANCTUARY n30-(Fanzine-Resistance Productions-Switzerland-1994)

Number 30 of this Swiss punk zine released by the label Resistance Productions.I already posted few issues of this fanzine 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. 

Short yet very interesting.
Enjoy it.

JASON RAWHEAD-Time.Stopped.Dead-(Play It Again Sam Records-Belgium-1992)

Jason Rawhead was a band from Belgium active on the end of the 80s until 1996.They released 4 albums and a bunch of 7inches, a discogs page about them is here.
In this cd they play a personal form of heavy rock mixing some granitic metal riffs with powerful drums/vocals and great rock passages.Somehow, they remind me lots of bands of the crossover scene from the fabolous 90s.
It seems that they reformed back in 2015 for a one-off show,only. 
Their Fb page here where you can see old flyers and related info,a soundcloud page is here with lots of great tracks to enjoy.
All in all a very good album by an original and very cool band. 
Enjoy it.

THE SMALLTOWN GROOVERS-Demo Autoprodotto-(Self Released-Italy-1991)

Another mystery tape here:almost no info on the cover sleeve,I do not know where they come from,neither the line up, how long they were active or when this was released,I guess 1991/92.
A small review(no idea from which magazine was taken from) was included in the cover sleeve,apparently this is their second demo.
Well recorded, probably in a professional studio recording,beside the last song, which is recorded live(no idea where).They offer us 5 well played and arranged tracks of acid dance and pop wave. 
Their music is a bit too cheesy for my personal taste but this tape is so obscure that fits in this blog anyway.
If ever somebody out there will be so curious to listen to them!
Some tracks are kind of very catchy too,if you like the genre...
Enjoy it.
