VA - Propaganda Russia Bombs Finland LP (1982)

Another classic comp. Some might even call it Finland's 'Flex Your Head'. Or maybe just me. Ripped from the 1995 CD reissue.

M.A.P. - Kaasua EP (1982)

Like Evulaatio, Maanalainen Pelastusarmeija (M.A.P. for short) were another lesser-known Finnish band that only released one 7" during their short existence. If the first song sounds familiar, that's because it's a reworking of 'Police Story' by The Partisans. According to google translate "kaasua" is Finnish for "gas", so I'm guessing the song isn't a story about police. Ripped from the 2005 reissue.

VA - Killed By Finnish Hardcore LP (2003)

I've been listening to a lot of Suomipunk as of late so I thought this month will be all Finland all February! A good place to start is this bootleg sampler, chock full of killer tracks by the heavyweights of the country as well as lesser known bands that only appeared on a comp or two back in the day. Done by the same guys who put out Killed By Hardcore, so you know it's good.

DESPERATE MINDS - A Chance To Feel Emotions Alive EP (1986)

This week's post comes to us from Kamloops, the same town that brought us Inner Anger and Sineater. I think these guys were into 7 Seconds, but I could be wrong. They also put out a demo tape and an LP, which you know I'll post on here if I ever come across 'em.

VA - SUB [Fita Perdida] LP (2015)

Y'all are familiar with the 1983 Brazilian HC comp 'SUB', right? Well here's the bonus record that came with the 2015 reissue. It's a lost tape of either demos or out-takes, I'm not sure exactly which since the liner notes are in Portuguese. Still sounds just as raw the songs that did make the cut in my opinion. You can check out a few tracks from it HERE.

EVULAATIO - Rakkautta EP (1986)

I only discovered this Finnish band a few months back through the excellent DegenErik blog. I dug this record so much I just had to have my own copy. Luckily I was able to find one online in great shape for a reasonable price. From what I can gather they only put out this one 7", which has never been reissued. If you like classic Finnish HC, then this'll be right up your alley.
