A Hangover in Your Head

The 1989 Extreme Noise Terror/Disrupt Split 7”

In 1989, England's Extreme Noise Terror were at the forefront of the crust genre. Having just released their masterpiece "A Holocaust In Your Head," there were few bands who rivaled their reputation in the game. Their contemporary brew of aggressive hardcore was distinct and forceful, making waves all the way across the pond into America and inspiring a new crop of groups with their this dual-vocal approach.

Perhaps the most notable of those inspired were Massachusetts' band Disrupt. While still relatively new to the scene, they were already playing a style of music that earned them the moniker as "the American ENT." Clearly it's foolish to try and dispute the obvious similarities, but most seasoned listeners of the genre would bluntly tell you that comparing the two groups is unfathomable and borderline sacrilege.

At the very start of their existence, Disrupt vocalists Pete Kamarinos and Jay Stiles were in discussion with their unofficial brothers across the ocean in regards to collaborating on a split EP for their premier release. This record would never materialize, however the bands remained in contact and forged a long distance kinship for years to come. They would eventually go on to collaborate on a project called Disabuse, releasing the sole eponymous EP in 1994.

Still, while both bands went on to carve their own niche in the annals of crust history, one cannot help but imagine how this aborted concept played into the ultimate legacy of Disrupt as a standalone, classic band.

In an interview with Jay Stiles of Disrupt, we explore how the two bands first came in contact, how the idea for the 7" came about, and why it ultimately never came to fruition.

To go along with the interview, Ben from Dropdead was kind enough to recount how he first became acquainted with the members of Disrupt, and ultimately how the tracks from the aborted split EP with Extreme Noise Terror would come to be released on Ben's label at the time, Crust Records.

Killing Hippies is Tight: The Electro Hippies / Generic split LP

https://www.negativeinsight.com/niblog/ ... ro-hippies

The only good kind of hippies is the Electro Hippies.

Hailing from Liverpool, Simon from the Hippies had been in contact with Sned of Bradford bashers Generic through letter writing, tape trades and the usual means of the period. Although Generic had already released a 7" in March of 1986, both bands were relatively new at the time and eager to get their songs on vinyl. A split LP release was proposed as a joint DIY venture: self funded, self released and self distributed.

The record was recorded for in 1986 but not released until February of '87 due to financial constraints. Upon finally being released, the full pressing sold out in under a month. It was a huge success. With such a response, it should have been quickly repressed. But it was not to be, and today it has become a collector's item.

Jeff Walker of the Hippies would go on to form the hugely popular grind/death metal band Carcass as well as draw the artwork for Napalm Death's seminal "Scum" album. Sned from Generic would go on to play in a slew of DIY bands including One By One, Disaster, Health Hazard, Suffer, Doom, Oi Polloi, Boxed In and many more, as well as be the main force behind the choice label, Flat Earth Records.

Here Sned gives the full story on how the Electro Hippies/Generic split came together as well as many other interesting tidbits and anecdotes about the era.

English Dogs' "To The Ends Of The Earth" 12" (1984) and "Forward Into Battle" LP (1985) are two of the best crossover albums to ever come out of the UK. Both were straight bangers released on the choice label Rot Records (Varukers, Resistance 77), headed up by Dunk from Riot Squad. At the time the Dogs had transitioned from GBH-sounding UK82 (which was also great) to the new crossover sound that was coming out. They'd had a couple lineup changes and recruited Ade Bailey, previously of the cult Riot City band Ultra Violent, on vocals and added Gizz Butt, from the Destructors, on guitar.

To help with the transition in sound, they enlisted friend of the band Trace Abbott of the cult NWOBHM band Overdrive (whose 1981 single "On The Run" is a highly sought after pounder). Trace ended up with writing credits on the song "The Chase Is On" from the "To The Ends Of The Earth" EP. Here Trace explains how it all went down.

"I get asked this question many times, haha. I am the founding member of NWOBHM band Overdrive and also play with Witchfynde. I used to have a rehearsal room and small studio in Grantham in the early '80s and many of the local bands rehearsed and recorded demos there. I also attended the same school as John Murray, who played bass with Overdrive before he left to form the English Dogs.

"They approached me when they made the change over to metal as they where struggling with writing, so I came up with a few riffs and we rehearsed in my studio and recorded demos. They asked me to join them on a full time basis, but unfortunately I was busy with other projects, so they used the demo to secure a deal and Gizz."

The Exploited and the Crossover Era (1986-1989)

An Interview with 'Deptford' John Armitage

In the mid to late 1980s, The Exploited were revamping their sound. The UK82 wave had died out, and just about everyone was moving toward incorporating a metallic crunch in their sound. The Exploited had been heading in a harder and faster direction since their inception, and 1983's "Rival Leaders" EP for Pax Records was one of the hardest records of the era to come out of the United Kingdom.

But it was a trio of releases from the second half of the decade that brought The Exploited name to an entirely new subset of fans. The "Jesus Is Dead" EP (1986), "Death Before Dishonour" LP (1987), and "War Now" EP (1988) saw The Exploited not only move into the crossover genre, but stake their claim as one of the elites of it as well. While the band always had a driving edge to their sound, these songs were blazers and bangers, full of searing riffs accented perfectly with Wattie's unmistakable bark. They were all released by Rough Justice in the U.K. and Combat/Combat Core in the United States, which were two of the premier crossover labels at the time and also home base for GBH, Broken Bones, English Dogs, Agnostic Front, Crumbsuckers, Corrosion Of Conformity, The Accüsed and more.

This era's lineup featured Wattie on vocals, Nigel 'Nig' Swanson on guitar, Willie (Wattie's brother) on drums, and a different bassist on each release (Deptford John Armitage, James Anthony Thomson Lochiel AKA Tony, and Mark 'Smeeks' Smellie, respectively). Bassist Deptford John had previously served time in Combat 84 (reaching urban legend status in the process) and the U.K. Subs (including playing on the track "Anti-Warfare" for the "We Don't Want Your Fucking War!" released by Conflict's Fight Back Records in '84). We tracked him down to get his thoughts on this era of the Exploited, his contributions to those records, plus a few surprises. John later went on to be part of the Killer Crew for Iron Maiden's road crew and currently works as a guitar tech and repair man today. Read the interview at:
