No Mercy - Widespread Bloodshed/Love Runs Red

We're gonna end November with some extreme Venice ass-kicking! No Mercy originally began in 1982, right alongside Suicidal Tendencies. By this 1987 release Mike Muir had joined up on vocals. Afterwards, No Mercy dissolved and Muir brought guitarist Mike Clark, as well as a few songs, into Suicidal, basically becoming the future of S.T. This shit is indeed E-V-I-L!

No Fun - Self-Titled 7"

From crazy hardcore to weird punk/new wave. No Fun was a Canadian band that released 3 7"s in the late 70'. This is their debut and I can assure you it sounds NOTHING like yesterdays post!

No Respect - The First Demo

While surfing blogs one day I found this excellent chunk of mean German hardcore. Unfortunately I don't have any more information about the band. And unfortunately, I can't even remember what blog I took this from! I do believe they are the same German 'No Respect' that became a ska outfit. Not sure. Oh well, enjoy this anyway.

No Labels - Jayne Doe Demo

Howzabout I offer up a second entry to help everyone get through Monday? This is a demo from No Labels, one of the bands featured on the No Core release from last post. Hard and fast!

Society's Problem

V/A - No Core

A classic, and massive compilation featuring 44 songs from 4 early North Carolina bands. Originally released as a cassette in 1982, it was re-released on a vinyl bootleg in 2002. All songs are short, fast and to the point!

No Core

No Tag - Oi Oi Oi

Decent, by-the-numbers Oi from New Zealand outfit. Don't know much about the band (as usual!). But here's a little piece I found:

No Tag were the boot boy band and this was an Auckland anthem - however the happy truth was that in real life they were a placid bunch. They had a massive live following and scared the hell out of the distributor with a top twenty chart entry, which they did not expect.

No Security - 40-Talisterna 7"

7 Inches of angry Swedish hardcore aggression! Released in 1987, this is an awesome EP.

Falsk Protest

No Brain Cells - Practice Tape

Horrible Quality! Well, it is called a "practice tape" after all, although there seems to be an audience present. Short, fast, obnoxious tunes from this crazy UK outfit. I know nothing else about them. Why download this? Well, in the words of the great climber George Mallory: Because it's there!

Why Torture Me? I'm Doing Nothing To You

No Thanks - Are You Ready To Die? 7"

Snotty, female fronted hardcore from New York.

Fuck Everything

No Crisis - She's Into The Scene

Good punk/hardcore EP from 1982. I believe this was their only proper release, although Grand Theft Audio put out a career comp in 1996. Pretty decent stuff.

No Milk On Tuesday - Self-Titled 7"

Interesting 1984 hardcore 7" from Connecticut's No Milk On Tuesday. Don't know anything about the band. This kinda reminds me of Peace Corpse. Give it a listen.

No Cut - Tragic A Present Demo

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Japanese hardcore kicks ass!! This 1983 demo is a bit rough sounding, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Damn good stuff!

NNB - Slack 7"

Here's a punky/new wave single from Minnesota's NNB (No Name Band). Released in 1978.

You Keep Pushing Me Back

No Pigs - Self-Titled 7"

No Pigs, from the Netherlands, released this bad ass debut in 1984. They released two more records before the end of the 80's but I haven't heard them. This, tho, is a damn fine 7".

Take What You Need

No Policy - MTL HC Demo

Today we have a great hardcore demo from Montreal. I think I enjoy this so much because to me, this IS 80's hardcore.

No Response - More Noise Pollution From Green Bay

No Response released one demo back in 1983. This is that demo, re-released as a CD in 2011. Great hardcore. Here is some more info on the band.

No Outlet - Guilderland Demo

This is a decent hardcore demo from the outskirts of Albany, NY. Sorry for the crappy cover, it's all I could find. I confess I didn't know alot about that scene, but here's an educational link.

Nomeansno - Small Parts Isolated And Destroyed

Originally forming in 1979 and still going some 30 years later, Nomeansno deliver jazzy, funky punk from Canada. This 1988 release is not bad by any means, but my attention span tends to be too short for an LP with mostly 5, 6 or 7 minute songs. Nevertheless, these guys are very good.

A Fucking Monument To Human Misery

Don't No - Incite The Riot

Southern Cal's Don't No released a 7" in '85 and this LP in '86. Good 'Nardcore' style HC.

No Use For A Name - Let Em Out! 7"

San Jose's NUFAN started playing mean, in your face hardcore in 1987 and kept it going all the way until their singer died earlier this year. Not sure if they'll be back. Here's their 1990 7".

Yes, We Are Record Thieves

No Idea - Class War

Punk Rock from the land of the kiwi. This E.P. is from 1985 I believe. Great stuff!

It's Not A Laughing Matter

V/A - No Visible Scars 7"

Here's a great 4-song 7" from 1985 featuring (as it clearly states right there on the cover) four great bands from Scotland.

No Alternative - Nights In S.F. '78-'82

This is an outstanding collection of classic San Francisco Punk Rock. From snotty punk to angry hardcore, these guys do it all great. It's a must-have!

No Choice - Sadist Dream 7"

Here's an interesting English Punk record from 1983. I can't say as tho I know anything about the band. But I enjoy the record all the same.

No Allegiance - Mad

Porno Patrol began in Germany in 1983. They released an AMAZING 7" in '84. In 1985 they changed their name to No Allegiance and released this LP a year later. Really damn good German HC!

No For An Answer - A Thought Crusade

NFAA belted out some Youth Crew style straight edge hardcore from Orange County. Good, but nothing too exciting.

It Just Doesn't Mean A Thing

NOFX - S & M Airlines

Punk legends NOFX released this brilliant LP in 1989. And like most of their other stuff, it's a classic. How can you not love the brilliance of 'Drug Free America', 'Scream For Change' and 'Vanilla Sex', just to name a few? Shouldn't their stuff be considered gospel music by now?! True American legends!

No Trend - Too Many Humans.....

No Trend was a noisy group of pissed off guys from just outside of D.C. Hard to define and at times just as hard to listen to. The best word I've seen to describe them is 'cacophony'. Enjoy their 1984 release, and also check out a great article here.

You Breed Like Rats, And You're No Fucking Better

The Damage To Date.....

In case you're keeping score at home, I've been up to no good here for about a year now. In that time I've had about 450 Posts and about 470 Releases, including 2 "mix tapes". Surprisingly, to my knowledge there's been only 2 releases that have been black-balled. Even more surprisingly is the fact that there's been over 110,000 page views in that time. That just boggles a simple mind like my own. At any rate, thanks for killing some time with me, and why don't we do it for another year?!?

Now, on to November. Hmm, what can be our theme for November? November. November. Wait! I've got it! Welcome to NOvember!!!
