It seems as if I have some catching up to do after last summer's hiatus. First off, I'd like to read some comments if possible, I am curious what you think of the music posted. Secondly, I am not sure if there are dead links or not. I am using mediafire now, megaupload seems to cause troubles and/or is not always available. Let me know.
And for now, enjoy the Neo Punkz!
The second vinyl rip on the blog. The Neo Punkz were a young and snotty punkband from Haarlem, close to Amsterdam and home to many great bands back in the days.
This ep was released in 1980 and as far as I can tell it was a self released record (as were many back then) The 5 songs are played in a sloppy style, distorted guitars and snotty vocals. Young, loud and snotty? I think so yes. The cover photo is great, 5 young punks posing as hard as possible, showing off the studded wristbands and so on, days I remember really well. Most punks from our generation have been there and done that. (In fact the follow-up band ‘Suspense’ has a record in which the band members seem to share wristbands and collar belts, I will upload that ep too one day, so you can see for yourself). I believe 500 copies were pressed.
This another one much sought after Dutch punk record, it used to be on display on the Utrecht Record Fare and it costed something close to 500 euros. Last weekend it was not on display any longer, so maybe someone bought it?
Some of my friends from Japan asked me if this ep and the Suspense one will be re-released. Who knows?
