Naturecore - With Love... Wish You Were Here! Ep
Naturecore was a short lived Southern California anarcho-punk band from the mid 80s. This 12" Ep was released on No Master's Voice records in 1986, though it was recorded in 1984. The songs feature strong male/female trade off vocals over proto-crusty HC - somewhere between Dirt and Antischism if you ask me... a bit head of it's time I think. The lyrics are strongly anarcho influenced, and deal with animal rights, exploitation of Native Americans, etc. The combination leads me to see Naturecore as a direct influence on the coming peace punk/crust scene in the USA - Antischism, Nausea, Mankind?, etc. Check it out for yourself...
