Slowly We Rot - Poverty Of Existence tape

From (stupid, sexy) Flanders, Belgium, kind of Crusty...could you call this H8000?  I guess you could, I was never really into that sub-genre of 90's Metalcore, can you tell I don't have much to say about this band, they're just good, ok.

Nembutal - Demo tape

Powerviolence from London with current and ex-members of I Like Bugs, Slow Plague and Cease To Exist.  This only just came out at the end of last month so yeah, you should probably buy it.

Hard Skin/Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät - split 7"

Hard Skin is everybodies favourite ironic Skinhead band, except if you're a far right comedy Oi band.

Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät are a Punk band from Helsinki made up of disabled people.  They are a subject of a documentary and have recently been selected to represent Finland in The Eurovision Song Contest.  I must confess when I first heard about this band I thought it was just a gimmick, but after seeing them on tour with Hard Skin (which is where I picked up this 7"), I'd encourage anyone to go see them.  While I'm still not really a fan of their music, I'm glad they exist.

Both bands cover each others songs in their own languages, Miks Ei Kukaan Ymmärrä turns into Why Won't Anyone Understand? and We Are The Wankers becomes Me Ollaan Runkkareita.
