Social Circkle are one of the best bands of the new early 80´s Hardcore scene. Yes, their retro but so what, they´re fuckin´ragin´. Hope they´re still on fire when they hit Koma F on this their last day of the tour…

Family Man are the best Berlin Hardcore band right now. Intelligent, tight, melodic and they always put on a great show. Plus they are a pretty good-looking bunch… yea, I know you´re too cool to care for these things…

This will probably be the show of the month! Don´t miss…



OUT ON A LIMB from Chemnitz write some really good songs! Their EP on Thrashbastard Records is full of catchy hardcore anthems!

DRAMAMIME share some band members with PRESSGANG and IDLE HANDS but these guys are way more rockin´…

Me like very much!!!

Sounds like a cool show December 4th at Koma F!!!

Es wird brasilianisch in Berlin. Auch wenn das Wetter grad mal wieder sehr deutsch ist. Aber entgegen landläufiger Meinung scheint auch in Sao Paulo oder Rio nicht ganzjährig die Sonne…

Am morgigen Samstag, 3.10., eröffnet in der Richardstr. 38 in Neukölln das Café Vux

und Montag, 5.10., gibts im Koma F den passenden Soundtrack dazu, haha. Dann spielen nämlich: SIEGE OF HATE aus Fortaleza, Brasilien und INTO SICKNESS aus Mexiko-Stadt. Hoffe, wir sehen uns!

Bis denne


Some reviews of new local Berlin records

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on September 25, 2009 by mischalke04

These three Berlin Hardcore 45´s  came out over the past months. I have written about DISCO VIETNAM, A BIT OF BRAINDEAD and MINUS APES before, but I was still very exited to hear their first releases. To make it short: they´re all great! You can get them through Yellow Dog Records, Thrashbastard Records or some other distros. To make your decision to search for these records a little easier, I´d like to try to describe them a bit:


DISCO VIETNAM are the wildest bunch of the three, at least musically. With these  4  songs clocking-in under 5 minutes, you know what you´re in for:  fast and furious early-80´s Hardcore. They do throw in some breaks and melodies and play very tight, but over-all this is a rowdy, out-of-control,  rough-sounding record that I can´t find a thing to complain about. I love this kind of Hardcore. The chorus of their anthem goes:  My band is bad / And tonight we play here / My band is crap / And tonight…tonight we play here

Well, they´re actually pretty damn good. But I guess they don´t take themselves too seriously, which in my book just shows how cool they really are. The guys in DISCO VIETNAM asked me to do a variant cover-drawing for the record, so I sat down to do some old-school fine-line cross-hatching for them, like I used to do in the 80´s.  Kinda like this one here that I did a loooong time ago. I think that first small batch is sold-out by now.  The other design is pretty cool too, so get one of those remaining ones before they´re gone! On Search For Fame Records.




A BIT OF BRAINDEAD – Totally Wrecked EP

A BIT OF BRAINDEAD have been around for a while and played a lot of shows here locally. They are a riot onstage but this record also shows their musical side. Of these  three records, this one has the best production. The drawing on the sleeve might look simple but A BIT OF BRAINDEAD managed to get a heavy and very tight sound on these 7 songs.  But don´t get me wrong, they are still playing some damn fast and angry Hardcore.  If I  had to pin it down, I´d  say: mid-80´s Hardcore. Of course I love it, that was the time when I  got head-on into Hardcore. Some great quick guitar-breaks and melodies but none that take away from the over-all unruly energy. Plus they do have some pretty angry lyrics to go with it:  „Demonstrate“ / „Yeah“ / „But please no violence“ / I´m sorry but can´t avoid the circumstance to revolt against your systematical repression / And you´ll give me a lesson about senseless aggression? / Ha Ha Ha, what a fucking joke! (from „The Way Democracy became established“).

Get this record, you won´t be disappointed. Co-released by Rising Riot, Thrashbastard and Yellow Dog Records. Now let´s hope that their local brother-combo APE ATTACK comes up with a record soon too…




MINUS APES are the most melodic and Punk sounding of the three bands . If  DISCO VIETNAM are playing  Hardcore circa 1983  and A BIT OF BRAINDEAD 1985, MINUS APES sound like 1979. They have the west-coast Punk sound down! They also give a nod to some of the melodic Swedish Punk and Hardcore bands that have been all the rage over the past years. But they are still pretty young and they filled  these grooves with a lot of fresh now-time anger and energy to save it from being just another nostalgic retro record.    Traditions and trends / It´s all the same / Enemies and friends / It´s all the same / It´s all the same / Those goals and tries / I´m tired of being a compromise ( „It´s all the same“ )

Six well-written songs on this EP and not one dull second. Out on Thrashbastard Records. What better sign of quality do you need?
