Obscure Canada - Vol. 1 - Part 2

Here are the other songs from some of the Canadian 7"s that I posted previously. Now you can decide if I originally posted the best song or if they both stink!

Androids - Over And Over
Buddy King & The Motion -  I Didn't Know Her
Cutz - Space In Time
Dundas - Can't You Hear Me
Edsells - She Escaped
Gas - Evacuate
Paperboys - Saturday 12 Midnight
Pelicans - Pelicans
Psychotic Pineapples - Legal Limit

I'm still deciding what songs to pick for Vol. 2. If there are any requests, let me know and I'll see what I can come up with.

V/A - 018/Tio Grupper LP (Sweden, 1980)

Here is a nice compilation LP of Uppsala bands. It starts off with 2 good punky tracks from The Stain who also did a 7" in 1981 and then tracks from the N-Liners and Rune Strutz who both released 7"s in 1978. The 7" tracks are more punk than what you find on this LP though. Rävjunk also released an LP and several 7"s which are all worth hearing. I'm not familiar with any of the other groups.

The Stain - Vill inte
The Stain - Den tysta verkligheten
N-Liners - Återfall i farten

V/A - KBD 50 and 51 LPs (Sweden)

This post contains all Swedish punk and no American junk!

These 2 LPs came out in 2003 (at least that's the date on the back of the covers). According to the note on the back of the sleeves: "Out now, KBD 50 and 51, two fine new volumes containing obscure punk rock from the first years of punk in Sweden. This is not meant to be some kind of "Best of Swedish punk" comp, this is just some of the rarest shit I could dig up from my record collection. I hope there will be some new stuff for everybody. By the way, none of the appearing records were pressed in a quantity larger than 500 (one exception OK)".

Many of the records on these compilations have been posted previously here or at Killed By Death Records.

V/A - Killed By Death #50 LP 
Jonström - P3 (1979)
Quizz Kidz - Tomorrow (1980)
Morgan - I Want More (1980)
High Voltage - I'm  A Fool (1978) [from V/A - Ljud Från Friberga LP]
Desperate Livin' - Gevär (1981)
Oss - Falska rykten (1980)
Tre Man Stark - Ensam (1982)
Cyklon B - Kris (1979)
Rock Set - Piteå kommun (1979)
Hangover - Sick Society (1978)
Kramp - Disciplin (1982)
Tripple Cripple - Born To Fuck (1981)
Pinheads - Säga ett (1981)
The End - Snutjävlar (1979) [says 1980 on the label]



V/A - Killed By Death #51 LP
Venerias - Monarki (1978)
DT & The Stoodes - Lev (1981)
Shit Kids - Frösö sjukhus 1984 (1979)
Zeppo & The Zepp-Zepps - Ode To Johnny Rotten (1978)
WBT - Hem från storan (1980)
Quiet Men - Mongoloid (1979)
Bizex-B - En våldtäkt i vinyl (1983)
Reklamation - (Trivs du i) Hjo? (1980)
Vanvett - Kurts Klagoord (1981) [from V/A - Åminne Punkfiesta LP]
Forssell - Punk-Plonk (1980)
Brigad 45 B - Nazismen (1980)
Bakrus - Lämrock (1980)
Arsenik - Bad Girl (1980)
ABC 80 - Pop i radion (1980)



It's a shame that the other song from the Venerias 7" was not included. With supposedly only 4 copies made, it isn't something that anyone will be finding very often. I would really like to hear the other song since it is claimed in the notes with the LP that it is better than the one we did get to hear. Has anyone other than the person who did the LP actually seen the record or heard the other song?

Obscure Canada - Vol. 1

Recently I've been recording a bunch of Canadian records for someone. What you get here are some lesser known songs all taken from 7"s. Some have appeared in the past on eBay under the guise of "megarare KBD punk/powerpop". Keeping in mind that "KBD" and "powerpop" are among the most overused (and abused) terms (next to "rare" and "mint") on eBay I'll leave it up to you to decide whether these are worth searching for.

Androids - Roller Derby Queen (1979) From Toronto.
Roland Blinn & The Fishermen - Tense (198?) From Halifax. Not sure of the year but maybe early 80s. It is on the Nerve label, same as the excellent Phollop Willing P.A. 7". Also released an LP called "Rosebud" in 1989.

Edsells - Don't Wanna Go To School (1981) From Vancouver.
Gas - Special This Week (1979) From Toronto area.
T.H.E. Hab - You Make Me Glow (early 80's?) No idea where this is from.
Idols - Reajean (1980). From Saskatoon. Members later formed the Northern Pikes.
Mix - Break Up Shake Up (1985) From Nanaimo. Has been known to sell for high prices.
Mr. Science - Popeshat (1990) From Toronto.

Curtains (Canada, 1981)

Staying in Canada here's an EP from the Curtains who were from Ottawa. This was their only release as far as I know. It was distributed by Mannequin Records from Burlington, Ontario, who also released records by Kinetic Ideals, The Filters, Ceramic Hello, etc.
