when I wrote: Meet Me There! I was talking about Munich of course... and on a side note: the GERMS vocals will be handled by the guy who also played Darbie Crash in the WHAT WE DO IS SECRET movie but is better known in America for playing a Doc. in this series called EMERGENCY ROOM or E.R. in short!
speaking of Munich: here's ORGANIZED NOISE's DEPRESSIVE E.P. ATTENTION! they are totally different to what normally gets up on this blog but as a) Munich is in Bavaria and b) excluding the trousers would also mean excluding the story of my the 1st signed copy of anything. from 13 to 17 I also lived in Munich where I discovered the wonderful world of Punk & HC and since that tried to explore those strange territories as much as possible. one guy who would be with me on my quest for fun and games would be known under the moniker Masi, became a real close friend for me and an emetic for my mam. guess whose parents were also visited from the police for the 1st time at the exact same time than mine? or guess who got his room searched by the cops cause they intimidated his parents so much that they'd give them permission? I'll give you a little hint: my Dad enjoyed himself when they tried to do the same with him... anyway, even though my mother started to bitch as soon as I would just mention his name Masi and me never completely lost contact until the last 8 - 9 years (in case you read this my friend shoot me an e-mail). anyway, ORGANIZED NOISE has a more sludgy, rockish touch and the title fits more than well. you can hear that the lyrics of tracks like SNOW PUSHER are based on experience and if you know that vocalist Pogo has a stiff leg cause he jumped through a window while tripping on L.S.D. there's nothing more you need to further the case.
as promised here's a real post a.k.a. music you can download! well, here we got FULL NOISE NINE's 9 track debut 7" called PROGRESS... FOR WHAT? which was released on CIVILISATION RECORDS in 1996 I think. as I already posted their split 7" with 100% GOREBEAT a.k.a. SEUCHENHERD you might be familiar with their sound already. in case you aren't familiar with F.N.9 - a short description would be that they started as a 3 piece and continued as a 2 piece after the bass player left and played GRINDCORE influenced by the usual suspects: YACÖPSAE, ROT, etc. with lyrics ranging from touching political topics to complete nonsense. the drums were handled by Pig who also played drums in STAGNATION'S END and PARANOIA KEEPS CRAWLING while the guitar was handled by Kusche who may or may not have also played in 100% GOREBEAT at one point but had to quit cause work or school forced him to move to another city but I'm not sure if my memory serves me right so don't quote me on that. the regular covers looked the one you can see here and were either blue or red. 300 came on yellow vinyl with a different cover artwork and an extra lyric sheet. if anybody could scan me the different artwork and/or the extra lyric sheet that would be highly appreciated!

here we got USE TO ABUSE's demo tape from 1995 which was called FOREVER. way back then they were just the 3-piece as which they originally started: Max (GROWING MOVEMENT, NIPPER, etc.) on drums, Fratz (HULK RÄCKORZ) on bass and Harry (= USE TO ABUSE) on guitar/vocals as he is still today. well, these days he just handles the vocals if I'm not mistaken. I'm not really sure what the current state of the art in case of USE TO ABUSE is as I lost my interest in them when they started to go for a more ROCK'N'ROLL influenced sound.

truth be told: I'm not really into the later stuff of AMEN 81 but I'm really into this 10" as this is a great merging of early, raw DEUTSCHPUNK and DISRUPT (some parts borrowed directly from some DISRUPT songs). being great people and a strong anti-cop and anti-Nürnberg (their hometown and one of Germany's cities were being PUNK and having right-wing political views at the same time was very common) stance make them score extra points. the only thing I'm not really into is the way the lyrics are written in some parts cause that sounds pseudo-intellectual to me. came with a booklet in newspaper form, multi-colored vinyl and the cover folds out to a big poster.

I've already told you that PARANOIA KEEPS CRAWLING evolved out of SEUCHENHERD and STAGNATION'S END when those bands split. after the split 12" with STAGNATION'S END the released their MADE TO BE BROKEN full-length on CIVILISATION REC. (the vinyl version) and PER KORO REC. (the CD version). I didn't post it earlier cause it's still available but as PARANOIA KEEPS CRAWLING now have also called it a day and Markus / PER KORO sells the CD for just 4.50 € I decided to post it so you can check it out and then buy it in case you like it! a little bit of advertisement for PER KORO REC. so to say. b.t.w. as Markus moves with his record store and therefore has a lot of costs he needs money anyway! so, go and buy records from him! he's cheap, quick, reliable and most of all a really cool guy! and as Oli from CIVILISATION REC.also needs (always) money buy records from him too! now back to PARANOIA KEEPS CRAWLING: the CD version of MADE TO BE BROKEN came in a DVD-case and comes with the same (colored) booklet that also comes with the 12" version. I got both versions but due to me being lazy I ripped the CD. music-wise I dare to say PARANOIA KEEPS CRAWLING were heavy influenced by NEUROSIS and HIS HERO IS GONE but were far from being another stupid clone-band!

I just got this copy of REVENGE's demo-tape thanks to my old buddy Uli! 9 songs and an intro that appeared just here on their demo. I guess the reason that none of these tracks made it on their 1st 7" is that these songs are sounding way more NY-styled than anything they did later (and got them the chance to open for SICK OF IT ALL if I'm not mistaken where they pissed people off cause they drank all the beer incl. that for SICK OF IT ALL and their roadies or something like that). if you compare this tape to their brilliant 2nd 7" it might sound like 2 different bands if you don't listen carefully but if you play the demo and their 2 7"es after one another you can hear the progress they made as a band. the rule of thumb is that progressing as a band is a process very much like growing up in case of bands that have been started by people that haven't played in (many) other bands before and therefore have just little expierience and REVENGE (who shortened their name from SCAPEGOAT'S REVENGE to REVENGE not that long before this tape was recorded I think b.t.w.) are no exception to this rule. the tape also included really pretty artwork on the inlay as shown below but no lyrics.
