RAMONES were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974. Despite achieving only limited commercial success, the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement in both the United States and, perhaps to a greater extent, the United Kingdom.  All of the band members adopted pseudonyms ending with the surname "Ramone", although none of them were related. They performed 2,263 concerts, touring virtually nonstop for 22 years. In 1996, after a tour with the Lollapalooza music festival, the band played a farewell concert and disbanded. Only a little more than eight years after the breakup, all three of the band's founding members - lead singer (and, at the time of founding, drummer) Joey Ramone, guitarist Johnny Ramone, and bassist Dee Dee Ramone - had died.  Their only record with enough U.S. sales to be certified gold was the compilation album Ramones Mania. However, recognition of the band's importance built over the years, and they are now mentioned in many assessments of all-time great rock music, such as the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. In 2002, the Ramones were ranked the second-greatest band of all time by Spin magazine, trailing only the Beatles. On March 18, 2002, the Ramones—the three founders and drummers Tommy and Marky Ramone—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2011, the group was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

Controversial album wich opened a periode for TSOL not much popular and quite critized in the scene. With this "Revenge" the band leave the open door to some kind of hard-rock with sound and production totally mainstream, even they two ballads... but the true is with the pass of the time the recording became as a one more TSOL album, which continues to keep those gothic influences and some dynamic punk rock songs too. Since 1986 to mid 90's the band released some attempts to enter in the mainstream and big industrial music, but all of them became in complete failures.

Country:  US

Label:  Reprise
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  38 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Horror Punk






















After seven years of complete discographic silence, the californian veterans punk rockers attack us again with new album. This time there is just punk rock with some pop influences, whith few distorted guitards and clear and melodic voices and chorus. It's no sure to describe this one as a pop punk album, in the 90's style, but it's something like that. Even most of lyrics have nothing to do with "horror punk", b-movies or Misfits, to mention a few. This is more related to optimistyc and positive pop. The band added in some songs even electronic keyboards. But the final result is more than satisfactory, not the typical TSOL album, but still good and recommended.

MISSION OF BURMA

Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  40 min.

Style:         Post Punk






















Post Punk? people and medias use to describe them as "post-punk", but in fact this band started in 1979 in Boston, has recorded more than this. We can to affirm this one was one of the first bands to make noise-rock, indie rock or even "alternative rock". Listening to their debut it can to remind post-punk bands but also Sonic Youth, Pixies or maybe Mudhoney, all of them bands which existed some years later. This debut has originally eight tracks, but later other record labels added to the album some bonus tracks.

YOUTH OF TODAY

































"Break down the walls"
Year:  1986
Country:  US
City:  Brookyn , NY
Label:  Revelation
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  28 min.
Lyrical themes:  straight edge
Genre:  rock
Style:          Hardcore






















Arguably one of the leaders of the second wave of straightedge in the mid-'80s, Youth of Today was a New York-based band started by ex-Violent Children members Ray Cappo on vocals and John Porcelly on guitar. Rounding out their lineup in 1985 with Graham Philips on bass and Darren Pesce on drums, Youth of Today recorded and released their debut EP, Can't Close My Eyes, on Positive Force, a well-known straightedge mainstay. Philips and Pesce exited shortly thereafter, and lineup changes abounded until a five-piece settled long enough to record the band's first full-length offering, 1986's Break Down the Walls. Again, the band had more lineup changes after the release and subsequent tour for Break Down the Walls, and in 1988 a four-piece Youth of Today consisting of Cappo, Porcelly, Walter Schreifels on bass, and Sammy Siegler on drums went into the studio to record their follow-up full-length, We're Not in This Alone (1988). By 1990 Youth of Today had decided to call it a day and released a farewell 7" EP on Revelation (soon to become the leading light in the next wave of straightedge). Now known as Ray 2 Day, Cappo formed the Krishna-core band Shelter, which Porcelly eventually joined as well. In 2010 the band returned until nowadays (2017).

WIPERS

































"is this real?"
Year:  1979
Country:  US
City:  Portland
Label:  Sony
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  35 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:       Avantgarde        Punk


























Wipers was a recording project formed in 1977 in Portland, OR. Originally conceived as a studio band, they rarely played live and maintained a DIY ethos that kept them relatively unknown outside their hometown apart from appearances on underground cassette compilations in Europe. It wasn't until a relatively well known band called Nirvana paid tribute to the band by performing cover versions of their songs that Wipers gained a worldwide audience. The album was reissued several times by different labels such as: Psycho Records, Sub Pop and Sony Music. In 2001, it was digitally remastered by Sage and reissued again on his own Zeno Records as part of a 3-CD set, with the track list altered so that the song "Alien Boy" appeared together with the other three tracks from the Alien Boy EP, after "Wait a Minute". It was reissued on LP by Jackpot Records in 2006, remastered again from the original tapes that Sage provided to the label.

The albums 1983-1987 in 2004 and Fantasma in 2009 were both released on Alternative Tentacles, the record label of former Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra. The album Oleander was released in 2011.

Four piece band started in 2010 in Barcelona, Catalonia. But lyrics and voice are not catalan but polish, because their singer Patrycja Proniewskawas born in Poland and it's easier for her to sing in her mother language. After two official albums this third one seem to become their best recording until nowadays.The band doesn't use electronic instruments nor effects, but they remind the cassic post-punk bands female fronted as Siouxsie and The Banshees, for example.

THE ACCÜSED


























"grinning like undertaker"
Year:  1990
Country:
City:  Seattle
Label:  Rough & Justice
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  14
Time:  36 min.
Lyrical themes:  horror, b-movies
Genre:  rock
Style:         Hardcore
























Fusing hardcore, punk rock and heavy metal into a furiously thrashing hybrid, Seattle's The Accused invariably described to their style as "splattercore," a reference to their chief lyrical inspirations - b-serie horror films and comic-book violence. It was a far cry from the political leanings of vocalist Blaine Cook's previous band, the Fartz, but it gave them a definite crossover appeal among both punk and metal audiences. With their roots in hardcore, the Accused presaged the rise of the Seattle scene, but never fit into the grunge movement that sprang up around them. Some of their key personnel went on to join the "grunge metal" band Gruntruck, but in their own lifespan, The Accused were a different enough beast that they weren't able to capitalize on all the attention afforded the Northwest underground. The Accüsed disbanded in 1992 and come back in 2003 until nowadays.

Style:        Hardcore

















Perhaps not their best album but the most famous, and well know for the majority. Obsviously the artwork (cover, back and inside) are an excellents illustrations which have kept with the pass of the years. Musically this is a fistful songs of typical american hardcore punk from the 80's decade. Faster and crudest than other bands as Minor Threat or Black Flag, but simply hardcore. Good hardcore of course!
