The Nurse

Remastering The Nurse “”Discography” 1983-1984″ on La Vida Es Un Mus.

“Back in 1983 Tokyo’s NURSE released what probably is the first Japanese all female hardcore record on the cult label Incest Records (INC-002). A red 7” Flexi which showed 4 innocent looking girls on the cover but displayed an unheard amount of ferocious hard hitting hardcore punk on the 8 songs Flexi produced by Baki of EXECUTE/ GASTUNK. The Following year the almighty ADK Records added them to their roster releasing a 5 track EP (ADK-13E ) produced by label owner Tam of TYPHUS/ STALIN fame. The speed went down a notch but the rawness and aggression was still there. Sadly that record marked the end of NURSE’s recording career. Had they released an LP they’ll be heralded as highly as COMES which usually is the first band that comes to mind to most people when thinking of female fronted Japanese bands.

After years of their recordings been deleted on vinyl, both singles becoming absolute staples on any Japanese punk want list and the band’s underground following growing, La Vida Es Un Mus decided to repress both 7”s on a heavy weight LP to make sure a new generation discover the excellence of one of the all time great under rated bands.”

Hassle Bastards.jpg

Remastering Hassle Bastards “s/t” on Demo Tapes.

“Happy 50th Birthday Sik-O-War. Kings of UK Thrash Hassle Bastards were basically Chumbawamba in wind up mode and they sent this four track demo to Ben Sik-O-War from Raising Hell fanzine as he loved thrash. There was only ever one copy made. It’s under two minutes on a one sided 7″ of short, sharp and raging early 80’s thrash that harks back to the glory days of early 80’s European hardcore. Do you remember the thrash band The Ex and Chumbawamba did together called Antidote. They released one demo One Does Not Sell The Earth Upon Which The People Walk and one 7” Destroy Fascism! – well this is like that but harder, faster and funnier. “

Remastering Jack & The Rippers “No Desire” on Incognito Records and Static Age.

“Limited reissue of this classic Swiss-punk classic from 1979. JACK & THE RIPPERS were one of the 1st punk bands in Switzerland, based in Geneva, which has at that time an equally vibrant punk scene such as Zurich. Musically the band can be describe as brilliant power punk with strong English strike on the right track. So enjoy this wonderful piece of punk-rock! Comes with insert and a cover, treated with an especially UV-continual varnish!”

Remastering Broccoli “Home” on Drunken Sailor Records.

“Originally released on Rugger Bugger Records in 1998 and long out of print. 
Re-released to coincide with a forthcoming Japanese tour, we couldn’t be more excited to be able to release this classic record. Re-Mastered by North London Bomb Factory Mastering with the first 100 on Clear Vinyl. Comes with instant download. 
Formed out of Pondlife in the early 90s, the then Scottish outfit embedded itself firmly into the DIY scene, joining the likes of Jawbreaker and The Get Up Kids here and there, as well as scene regulars Chopper, Hooton 3 Car, Crocodile God, Leatherface and Snuff. Their sound was drawn out of their various interests from hardcore punk to Sonic Youth. ‘Home’, built the bridge between those and late-90’s emo icons and contemporaries at the time such as Texas Is The Reason and Sunny Day Real Estate. 
Nearly 20 years on, it still sounds dark, desperate, urgent and essential. Quite simply a seminal record.”

Remastering SP CAOS “Demo 1984” on Nada Nada Discos and Spicoli Discos.

“One of the most cult brazilian demo-tapes, recorded in january 1984 by Redson (Cólera) at his own Estudios Vermelhos and remastered from the original master cassette tape by Daniel Husayn. Some of these songs were released in many compilation tapes in Finland, France and Brazil. The band was heavily influenced by Finnish hardcore, but the raw recording give it a unique Brazilian touch to the songs. These songs are absolute raw, primitive, hardcore punk chaos in the most perfect, beautiful way. Vocalist, Anselmo, later became the bass player of INOCENTES and FOGO CRUZADO.”

Remastering Os Replicantes “Compacto 1985” on Nada Nada Discos.

This is one of my favourite Brazilian punk bands and it is a great pleasure to have the opportunity to work on remastering from the original tapes this important part of early Brazilian punk history. This classic 7in is very difficult to find and thanks to the hard work of Nada Nada discos has now been reissued with every aspect of the original restored and refreshed from the audio to the artwork.

“Os Replicantes are an influential Brazilian Punk rock band formed in 1983 in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul by Wander Wildner (vocals/guitar), Herón Heinz (bass), and Carlos Gerbase (drums).

One of their first actions was the establishment of an independent label, Vórtex. In 1985, they released an EP with the songs “Nicotina”, “Rock Star” , “O Futuro É Vórtex” e “Surfista Calhorda”. The latter broke into radio stations around the country, making the Replicantes known throughout Brazil. Their debut LP, “O Futuro é Vórtex”, came out in 1986 on BMG Ariola. Then, they released “Histórias de Sexo e Violência” (1987), which caused a fuss in the media, and “Papel de Mau” (1989) on the same label.”

Remastering Sperma “Züri Punx” on Static Age Records.

“Originally released in 1979 on Urs Steiger’s label Another Swiss Label the punk anthem “Züri Punx” (“Zyt from flower power ish verbii / Woodstock ish shit GSII …”) by the group Sperma. This song expressed with his musical directness and their slogans like lyrics (“They träumed vo Punk and Anarchy”) very nicely the fierce determination of the first round. The following year, the song reappeared again with a new B- side (Sinnlos insteed of Bombs). Today, 35 years later Static Age Musik from Berlin did release for the first time all 3 songs on a single in an edition of 500 copies with the two original covers and some liner notes.”


Potential Threat

Remastering Potential Threat “Demand an Alternative” on Beat Generation.

“First ever reissue since its official edition on Conflict’s label Mortarhate Records. 13 tracks of absolutely great and fast punk played as it has to be played, with high energy and rage. Limited edition to 500 copies, replica from insert and artwork. 180 grs. vinyl. POTENTIAL THREAT were formed in Blackburn in 1981, and recorded a couple of 7″ between 1982 and 1985. They played a lot of gigs with different bands as Discharge (their main influence in Pauline’s own words), Conflict, Crass and so on. The band started to be recognized by the punk fans especially in U.K. and got some great feedback as their gigs were totally wild and out of control. After different line-up changes, the band recorded this fucking ace LP in 1985 under the mighty Mortarhate label with a running of 1000 copies that were sold in few months. This is the first ever official re-issue from the album, with the same artwork and insert in a limited edition of 500 copies.”


The Vultures

Remastering The Vultures “At Home” on La Vida Es Un Mus Records.

“Official reissue of another of the scarcest Dutch punk records that was listed in the top 25 European punk rarities in Record Collector. THE VULTURES hailed from Epe, in the middle of the Dutch Bible-Belt. They recorded this 4 Track EP in 1981 that overtime has became impossible to find. Which is a shame as it is simply a masterpiece of Dutch Punk. Loud, proud and snotty, the sound is based around a trademark chainsaw guitar tone, plodding bass, passionate vocals and overall a clear UK influence. Without doubt if this band was english they would have been on Riot City, Rot or Secret Records or seen supporting the MAU MAUS, THE EXPLOITED or both DISORDER’s (Bristol and North East). Reissued replicating the artwork as originally printed but adding a few unseen full colour pictures on the reverse sleeve.”
