    Tamped Concrete / Walkin' Through

    [engl] 7INCH BOOTS were part of the emerging and extremely diverse hardcore community of the late eighties. Mixing the harsh yet straight forward sound of bands such as Hard Stance or Headfirst with a fine pinch of Power Metal a la Nasty Savage and a bootful of Kiss the band addressed tops such asclimate change, racism, right wing propaganda, and sexual abuse in their lyrics. The 12“ platter compiles their 1989 ‘Walkin’ Through’-Demo as well as the ‘Tamped Concrete’ 7” from 1990 and comes with an 8-page booklet with liner notes, tons of photos, flyers, some hilarious cartoons by guitarist Morten and an additional sticker.

    What Are You?

    [engl] Great hardcore from Gothenborg which sounds a lot like early Boston hardcore but with a distinct empowering on its own. Raw, aggressive vocals and strong musicianship. A steamroller for sure, cool artwork to boot.

    Hit The Bastards Where It Hurts. 1995 - 1997

    [engl] Their complete discography from 1995 to 1997, contains all their songs from "This World", "Strike Anthem" and "Statue" plus two additional cover versions. 30 Smashers with a communist agenda. After ManLiftingBanner have been put to ashes, Michiel and Burt team up with Pepijn and Thomas from Amsterdams infamous punk-bands NRA and Human Alert. The contents are handled with the same passion and intelligence as with MLB in the early days. Food for thought for all you non-believers. As for the music, it can be caught somewhere between the vibes of Underdog and traditional HC. It's all pretty raw and unleashed, but always catchy and unique. For the first time, released on vinyl after 25 years.

    The revolution continues

    [engl] While so many on the left cried defeat and dropped their so-called 'old-fashioned' principles, ManLiftingBanner felt an urge to go against the grain. Included in this record you will find the entire "Myth Of Freedom" 7", "Ten Inches That Shook The World" 10", one compilation track and eight newly recorded songs from 2011. The new songs are done in the traditional hardcore punk style only ManLiftingBanner can pull off. Expect nothing less.29 songs for a new generation, but also for those who where with the band back in the days and for those who kept the revolutionary fire inside and outside of the hardcore punk community strong and burning. Last but not least, after almost 20 years all the ManLiftingBanner songs are finally available on vinyl again. Moreover, the record comes with a huge, fully coloured 12-page booklet with photos, quotes, all ther wrecked.

    Requiem for the aftermath

    [engl] The material on "Requiem For The Aftermath" can be easily be compared to 'Chantdown Babylon’ but it is more intense and hard hitting with eleven songs to boot. Strike First quickly established a reputation of being one of the hardest-working and most aggressive hardcore bands in the dutch scene. This no-doubt did pay off, clearly evident on this LP.

    Rejoining the Forces

    [engl] The Italians of Two Words have come a long way. With roots in the hardcore scene of the early 90s, the band members have always remained true to themselves and their social and political principles. So it's almost natural that after a first 7", the band teamed up with Crucial Response Records to release their debut album. On "Rejoining The Forces", Two Words bang out twelve Youth Crew anthems with plenty of singalongs and mosh parts. There is also a reworked version of "Disillusion", a song by Think Twice, the old band of Two Words guitarist Freddy and drummer Gonzo, as well as a Chain of Strength cover. The LP is available in three colorways blue, red and white with an elaborately designed cover and a large lyric insert.
