Varaus - 1/2 LP

Varaus, from Finland, released this cleverly titled one sided 12" in 1982. And no surprise... it rips!

The Dirty Scums - Martens, Jij Ouwe Rukker 7"

Belgian punks The Dirty Scums started (I'm guessing on a drunken night) in 1981. And they've managed to keep it going in one form or another over 30 years. Not bad for a bunch of scumbags, right? Two angry shots at (I believe) Belgium's former Prime Minister.

Black Sheep - Demo 1984

Sadly we must leave behind the Land of the Rising sun now, and make a quick stop Down Under. To my knowledge this is all we're going to get from Black Sheep. I don't believe they released anything else. But they do give us some good Aussie hardcore with definite 'anarcho' leanings. I'm guessing Rudi Peni were a big influence.

The Sexual - Complete Discography 1983-1985

OK, let's ramp it up a bit today. The Sexual weren't around for too long but they made their mark. Like a punch to the side of the head! Heavy on the D-Beat. Heavy on the "Hell Yeah!"

The Stalin - Trash

What would a trip overseas be without a weekend stop in 1980's Japan? Here's the Stalin's tremendous full length debut from 1981. Great Japanese punk rock.
