Thought about posting some more Finnish punk stuff, but while checking this blog statistics, i found out many researches about this record led to here...
So here's Kyojinbyo's "Black Current Hard Coar" flexi, it's a follow up to their second ep i've posted here last December. Can't tell you much about this record, according to the picture and the voice, the vocalist is definitely not supposed to be a girl despite the nickname and the androgynous appearence. Looking at the stamped numbers on the cover, this flexi was supposedly pressed at two thousand copies so it's not an insanely rare record... That was posted back in 2006 on 7inch punk, but here you'll find a clearer, crispier version, and tracks had been separated differently...
This blog will not be updated for the next two weeks as i'm hopping on a van for some music related activities. See you back in October.

First and only release by these Finns. Self-produced by the band. Hailing from from the small provincial town of Varkaus.
Got this from a mailorder distro back in the early nineties, being a 13 song seven inch, i was expecting crude finnish thrash in the vein of early Terveet Kadet or Sorto, have to admit i was a bit disappointed when receiving the record. Saaste's music is fast paced punk with thin guitars delivered in a quite joyous, fun and laid-back atmosphere. I've read once an interview from a Finnish band where they said that life was so boring in Finland that the two options available for the youth was binge-drinking every week-end or playing music. According to their record pictures, Saaste were engaged in both activities. Two reasons for you to download this record: it's quite decent and enjoyable music, and this record hadn't been posted yet in the internet...

Obscure, unusual compilation pairing three Finnish and three Japanese bands.
Only info available on the www is a page on the Finnmusic database.
Released by the Finnish SHJ label who released a few eps in the early nineties.
Klamydia lays a nice melodic punk song, Sunset Brigade song is dark goth punk,
The Japanese bands are doing their usual stuff, except for F.V.K, who tries hard to play some sort of reggae inspired music, the song is quite weird, but original and interesting.
Nothing incredible here, but definitely honest material.
