Here’s a rip of both releases by D&V on Crass Records. D&V only consisted of Andy Leach on drums and Jef Antcliffe on vocals, hence the name D&V (Drums & Vocals). This download consists of The Nearest Door EP which was released in 1983 and the hugely titled album Inspiration Gave Them The Motivation To Move On Out Of Their Isolation which was released in 1985. I hadn’t heard the album in about 20 years and I was pretty surprised at how much I enjoyed it when I ripped it. The backing tracks were arranged and played by Penny Rimbaud using samples built up from vocal and percussive sources and the vocals of Eve Libertine & Joy de Vivre. Frankly it’s pretty experimental in places but considering it’s basically drums & vocals they’ve done a really good job.

The downloads are in either FLAC or 320kbps format so just grab whichever one you want. Enjoy.

(07 NOV 2012) UPDATE:
The links have been updated to use netkups or rapidshare now (I’ve been banned from mediafire ;)) so they should be OK.

Grindcore is an extreme genre of music that started in the early to mid 1980s. It draws inspiration from some of the most abrasive music genres – including death metal, industrial music, noise and the more extreme varieties of hardcore punk.

It goes on for around 70 minutes so it should fit onto a CD if you want to burn yourself a copy.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

To celebrate the pope’s visit to the UK I’ve put together a nice little selection of punk tracks that are related to religion in one way or another. As for me, I’m what is known as an explicit atheist. To put it simply, I have made a conscious decision about my non-belief in a creator or god. I have never found a single shred of evidence or facts regarding the existence of a higher being and if you consider some of the other theories that explain how life can exist I cannot see any reason for believing in a god. Obviously this is just what I believe to be true and I don’t wish to denigrate anyone’s own beliefs. If someone finds their religion a comfort or a moral guidance then that is their choice. It’s just not for me πŸ™‚ I’ve included a couple of bonus bits with the download but you’ll have to download the file to find out what they are πŸ™‚ Enjoy.

Here’s another compilation for your listening pleasure. This one is an ‘ABC’ of anarcho punk bands. I did have a nice idea for the track list but it all went a bit tits up at the letter Q so I’ve had to use a little artistic license πŸ˜‰ This is actually all mixed together into one big mp3 file. Unfortunately I couldn’t use my decks as I don’t have all the vinyl so it was done on my laptop using Audacity, a free audio editor. It goes on for around an hour and I’ve included some covers if you want to burn yourself a copy.

Here’s another compilation I’ve recently recorded from the original vinyl.

This collection of anarchist and “human rights” punk bands from the UK is a strong, varied, and provocative selection, one that should be of major interest to hardcore aficionados. It’s somewhat uneven, as are most samplers, but the brilliant track by Conflict stands out, and is almost matched by those of some surprising new groups (text from Kill From The Heart).

World & US Punk Compilations

Seeing as this is my first post on the Old Punks site I thought I’d try and make it a good one. This is a ‘2 disc’ compilation of world and US punk bands and most of the tracks are from the early 80s. The bands on the ‘world’ disc are from various countries around the globe and are mainly anarcho-punk but there are some other styles as well. As you can probably guess the US disc contains the bands from the U.S. and Canada and is more from the hardcore side of things but again it’s not exclusively hardcore.

Each collection should fit onto a single CD if you want to burn yourself a copy and I’ve even included some covers πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy it and if you’ve got any comments then post them here.
