on Saturday 13/09/2008 local heroes ONE FIST ROCKIN´ have played their farewell show in our hometown. musicaly they´re not really my cup of coffee but as I know their singer for quite some time and, way more important, as it was the last evening here for a close friend of mine before she moved to Wales for 1 year I decided to show up there! besides ONE FIST ROCKIN´ BLACK SHERIFF from Cologne and THE SMALLTOWN ROCKETS from Suttgart were on the bill but as I didn´t manage to show up as early as I wanted to and the flyer said ROCK`N`ROLL I saw none of them cause of talking to people outside and my dislike for ROCK´N´ROLL in general. as ONE FIST ROCKIN´ have been announced as DIRTY STREET ROCK´N´ROLL I was prepared for the worst but they weren´t that bad at all! their singer Spike gave an energetic performance and won my heart over with a big LOVE SUCKS tattoo over his belly. the wanna be though guy skinhead idiots liked them too or perhaps just pretended to do so to have a reason to put off their shirts and try to impress everyone with their 3, in most cases poorly done, tattoos. after the show we headed to another bar where my friend Sid and I made a lot of new friends (like we always do) through cynic comments and having fun! especially when Sid tried to get involved in a politcal discussion. I tried to avoid any involvment as I prefered to use the time to drink Gin Tonic and talk to Nadja. all of a sudden the sad moment where we had to say goodbye to her was reached. Sid told her that if she should´ve problems she should just call and within 12 hours he would be there! as I wasn´t as drunk as Sid I figured that 12 hours could be to short to get to her. so the 12 hours turned into 24 hours and I promised to accompany Sid if she´d need us. one retarded wanna be skinhead, who didn´t know us, started to laugh but stopped when someone, who knew us, told him that we really would come if she´d call us. when after saying goodbye Sid and I decided to check out a new after-hour club. that would turn out to be a stupid idea but that´s another story!
this is REVENGE live in their singer´s hometown! even if you don´t speak German you might get that the singer is dead drunk which might be the reason for the comments he makes between the songs. ClAus-rotten, the guy who released the tape on his tapelabel wrote about those comments that he who takes what Hoiz says for real is an asshole and I agree with him on that! we may have our very own kind of humor here in Bavaria and it might be hard to get into that when you haven´t been born and raised here but that doesn´t mean we´re all nazis, jocks, etc.... the sound of the DIAVOLO ROSSO side is really good as they were recorded on eight tracks and mastered afterwards! 15 songs and their set includes covers from CRUCIFIX, POISON IDEA and G.G. ALLIN!
this 7" should follow their PSALMS OF PURIFICATION CD on BAD INFLUENCE Rec. but somehow this 7" wasn't recorded under a lucky star. it was supposed to be released on vocalist Pat's label that was called BARRACUDA Rec. before but as Pat didn't like the old name anymore he changed it to RADIATION STAR Rec. and as the 7" was already in the pressing plant (with the old name on the label) he made stickers with the new label to cover it. that was the first thing that went wrong but more, that I can´t remember anymore, were to follow and finally NIPPER split up and Pat destroyed the 7"es with the exception of 13 7"es of which he gave one to me. it has 5 tracks of what is called POSI-CORE in the same style as the tracks on their CD, STAGNATION which was as a live-recording on the CD was re-recorded for this 7".
:OPERATION:MINDFUCK: was/is Michl who used to be in FIRSTWORLDSUICIDE and joined ERADICATE as a 2nd singer on the split 12" with SUPERHELICOPTER LTD. this is the 16 track demo of his one man drum machine GRIND project that he did besides his "real" bands. all recordings were done in his room by himself - real D.I.Y. so to speak! as the tracks are really short (you could have guessed that when you were at the part where it says drum machine!) and there are a lot of movie samples as filler between the songs I just ripped it as side a & b! as this his first try the sound quality lacks here and there and the programing of the drum patterns remind me of bad techno music on 1 or 2 occasions but as this is the debut of :OPERATION:MINDFUCK: I´d say it´s a good start! I know a lot of bands that were worse!
