More in detail:

GESS “Suffer damage + Live” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 190)

Back to the ’80s… Kyūshū fuzz-core terror!! Originally formed in 1983 in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture, these Noise/Punk maniacs quickly moved to Hakata to join the ultra violent scene of pioneering legends like GAI, CONFUSE, NO-CUT, SIEG HEIL and many more, performing at the cult “Control gigs” hosted by the Violent Party Crew.

Brutal chaotic distortion on a wall of lo-fi filth Punk! The classic “Suffer damage” Demo 1984 for the first time on vinyl mastered from an original tape and sounding better than ever, side B “Live at Matchbox, Hakata 1984 ” from the same noisy era. Extra CD with 2 x complete “Violent Party” live sets recorded in Nishijin Jaja in 1985 showing their progression from total Noisecore to that ’77 style Punk that later drove them to form LYDIA CATS!!

Includes A3 sized insert with liner notes and rare photos/flyers. A total must have if you like the earsplitting approach of bands like CONFUSE, GAI, SIEG HEIL, The SWANKYS in their earlier stage, NO-CUT, CURSE and the countless imitators of that sound that came with the following generations. Watch the trailer HERE

HEDO “1985: Memory of bloody hands” LP  (F.O.A.D. 189)

1985: ultrafast noisy Hardcore unearthing the blasting roots of the speed legend IRONFIST TATSUSHIMA later in CROW, DIE YOU BASTARD!, SCAMP, FIGHTBACK and many other bands that made history in Japanese HC and extreme underground… Their complete session from the super-rare split tape with The Spots, 23 songs of nonstop fast, catastrophic Ultracore-Thrash… the very first Japanese blast-beats ever recorded in Japan!

Mastered from the original tape, comes with an insert providing a detailed biographic note in Japanese and English written by Ironfist himself… Here’s a short excerpt to give you an idea: “..our aim was to do some noisy and fast Hardcore, and what we mostly had in mind back then was CONFUSE, because they were seen as the fastest band in Japan. But every time we practiced the level of speed of the songs was getting faster and faster, quickly surpassing CONFUSE“. Get ready to be blasted! Watch the trailer HERE
