Enola Gay/Vomit Yourself split LP

...And now for something completely different.  I'm a little weary of posting U.S. punk and HC for the moment, so here is a split LP of French bands - Enola Gay and Vomit Yourself.  This one dates from 1995 or so and both bands play blistering hardcore.  Enola Gay, one of a gazillion bands with that name, remind me alternately of Doom and early Extreme Noise Terror - great Euro crust-core.  Vomit Yourself are even faster, with shorter songs bordering on grindcore.  Both sides of the LP totally rip.  This one came out on the great French label Panx.  Enola Gay had a 7" and a couple of splits which I never tracked down but this record seems to be the only output of Vomit Yourself.  Download and be destroyed.

Pollution Circus - Destroy Authority... Ep

Here's another group who appeared on the "Earth Rapers and Hell Raisers" compilation.  Long before Against Me and all the bike-punk crap that is out there these days, Pollution Circus was a band that combined ultra lo-fi tunes and militant anarchist lyrics.  The songs are simple and full of spite.  These tracks, like their song on "Earth Rapers", are rather poorly played and recorded but somehow that lends to the urgency and effect.  This 7" and a few compilation tracks are all that they released.  Go here for the "In the Spirit of Total Resistance" comp. and another PC track.  I found a little info about Pollution Circus on the web, including a Myspace page run by one of the former members and another short info page

Jesters of Chaos - s/t 7"

It's been a busy week here and finally I've got some time for a new post.  This time out I've got the Jesters of Chaos, who we met in the last post.  Their track on the "Earth Rapers and Hell Raisers" comp. was always one of my faves from that collection.  This is their one and only 7" Ep which came out on the short lived Horton Recs label.  These dudes hailed from Seattle, Washington and played some great HC with a strong U.K. influence.  This 7" and the track from "Earth Rapers" were their only official releases.  Here is a rip of their demo tape which included all of these tracks, plus the rest of the recording session.  The quality on this "discography" is a bit lacking but for the completist it's good to have.  Here is their Myspace page, which is more of a tribute to their lead singer who sadly has passed away.  Check out the high quality rip of the Ep below.
