The Storming Of The City-(Comic-Leaflet-UK-1999)

An amazing and funny parody about the events happened on 18th June 1999 during a protest against capitalism that turned into a riot in the heart of  London.
It was called Carnival Against The Capital and A spoof version of the Evening Standard, daily London-based newspaper was produced. 30,000 copies were printed and distributed on June 17 and 18 to City workers. The cover resembled the layout of the actual newspaper and the inner pages contained agitprop and humor. The newspaper was handed out for free. The headline read 'Global Market Meltdown', followed by a spoof report of the collapse of the world's financial markets.[2][3]

This small comic leaflet is only 4 A4 pages printed off-set in b/w.
Great drawings by Pete Loveday and a very funny text by Schnews.
Enjoy it.

CCC CNC NCN-Performances Soundtracks 2005/6-(Not On Label-Italy-2006)

In this digital release, this legendary collective presents 4 soundtracks of 4 different performances held in Torino and around that city, their hometown, in the years 2005 and 2006.The last track is instead an unreleased track recorded in a studio.
I have already written about them when I posted their masterpiece album released in 1989 "Suidicio Modo D`Uso".
For who missed that post  CCC CNC NCN is a radical collective from the anarchic/antagonist underground scene, combining old-school industrial sound with conceptual records and live shows about unpopular topics, such as suicide as an extreme choice of freedom, mass control, and oppression.
An FB page about them and their recent activities is here, on this page you can read also few reviews about those performances.Unfortunately, this page is in Italian language, only. 
Enjoy it.

Great cassette by this short-lived band from Denmark, apparentely they have out only 2 releases.
As the subtitle says you`ll find here 9 tracks of pure Raw Hardcore D-beat Crust, well played and well recorded too.It came out with a lyric insert.
Plague Bearer Records is a punk label from Copenhagen, Denmark, I am not sure if it is still active.
Enjoy the fast D-beat Crust.

STRATFORD MERCENARIES-Live-Demo 1-06/07.02.98-The Victoria Inn Derby 08.03.99-(Self Released-UK-1999)

This is the demo by legendary Stratford Mercenaries, a superband formed by Gary Buckley already involved with the band Dirt, Philip Barker involved also with The Buzzcocks/ Lack Of  Knowledge and Steve Ignorant of Crass.
On the side B of this tape we find a professional studio recording made in 1998 and the side A  offers us a good live recording of their gig at the Victoria Inn Derby in 1999.
Strange enough this tape is not listed on their actual webpage where you can check lots of good videos, discography, gig list and more interesting stuff.
Enjoy it.
