YOUNG IDENTITIES - Positive thinking (negative reaction) 7"ep (540 Records 2010) 45:-
KRIG I HUDIK - s/t 7"ep (Feral Ward 2009) 45:-
Hardcore so good that it hurts! Poffen from Totalitär and Rolf Revålt from Missbrukarna among others launch old hits from the early Eighties / late Seventies. Best!!!
"What we got here is a bunch of still active veterans with an impressive list of merits that includes Totalitär, Missbrukarna, Swinehood, and Brainbombs at least. Such a list doesn't always matter, but when it comes to this band it actually does, as Krig I Hudik presents a 7" including eight covers and two originals. All the covered bands originate from Hudiksvall and the tracks are dating back to the late 70's or early 80's, with the exception of the late Missbrukarna cover from 1988 (which never was released in its original form). Personally I hadn't heard any of the originals prior to this as I can recall, but if they're even half as ripping as they are on here I need to track them all down immediately. Good old loud Swedish råpunk greatness with a killer raw production.
All tracks are great, but what really excites me is that the two new tracks are absolutely scorching and reminds me a somewhat of early Totalitär, but of course it's hard not to compare a ripping hardcore band that has Poffen on vocals with Totalitär. Either way, cover versions or not, this is a killer 7" release!
The bands covered, apart from already mentioned Missbrukarna, are The Turfs, Faktor 4, Knark i Hassela, and Massgrav (the old one obviously). [Krogh - September 30, 2009]
KRIG I HUDIK - Krig I Hudik 2 7"ep (Skrammel 2010) 45:-

Same as "Your Mom is..." 7", but this is the European version in an ultra deluxe fold-out sleeve! Wonderful.

Pretty much the same line-up - and sound - as on the Sir Henry Fiat's Bastard 7", but this time in Swedish.
THE HARD LIQUOR MEN - A drop of the hard stuff 10" (Malmö City Records) 50:-
Jonas and Nicko from Sir Henry Fiat's Bastard / Brun Dill team up with an awesome drummer and deliever some Malmö City punkrock?
