Desperat will be joining Mob 47 on their upcoming Japanese tour in October, which of course makes perfect sense as they share multiple members:

Desperat - Hardcore deluxe 12"

I've given up on doing mailorder at this point (and will probably be doing a clearance at some point soon), but I did recently do a coop buy of Desperat's excellent "Hardcore deluxe" 12" and have a single unclaimed copy left. You want it, it's yours for $32ppd in the US. Or you can wait to buy it on eBay for significantly more, if that's your choice. No doubt this one's gonna be a future bonzer, especially with an already (nearly?) sold-out run of a mere 300 copies. As for those of who wondering why you should care, Desperat is a new Swedish hardcore band with members from Mob 47 playing classic Swedish d-beat punk, just like the title of the song proclaims: "Guaranteed mangle". No need to reinvent the wheel here, just proof that old dudes often rage way harder than their younger counterparts. 'Nuff said.

D-takt & Råpunk


Sarcastic punk zine iconoclasts "Skitliv!" pay tribute to themselves with a double-disc collection of cuts from (almost) every artist they ever interviewed and that adds up to ten issues and 48 tracks of uncompromising Swedish d-beat/käng/råpunk. Most of the big names are represented, from old-timers such as Anti Cimex, Moderat Likvidation and Mob 47 to Wolfbrigade, Disfear, Skitsystem and Victims, as well as up-and-comers like Tortyr, Kvoteringen, Giftgasattack and truckloads more. Of course the quality here runs the gamut, be it related to songwriting or recording, but it kind of doesn't matter in end because it all starts to blend together after 20 minutes or so. On the other hand, as a genre-dabbler, it's a great resource to have because the song selection is so all-encompassing and overwhelming; I'm sure I'll be going back to revisit in smaller doses to pick out new favorites. For everyone else, especially if your only knowledge of Swedish punk is limited to the mediocre "Svenska Punkklassiker" discs, the uncompromising, unrelenting hardcore noise attack of "Skitliv!" is a great overview of a much-heralded underground scene well worth investigating, even it does veer towards overkill.

MP3: Moderat Likvidation - Nitad

Moderat Likvidation are an old Swedish punk band from the early 80s, widely considered to be the very first d-beat/d-takt act on the scene. They recorded a couple EPs before going their separate ways around '85, leaving a small, but important legacy. That is, until this weekend when they will be playing their first show in 22 years at Mejeriet in Lund, Sweden with fellow old-school vets Mob 47 and young upstarts Fy Fan (touring the US in March) and Nuclear Death Terror. Expect all sorts of old dudes crawling out from the woodwork with receding hairline mohawks. At least, that's how I like to picture it. Anyhow, while they are most certainly not my favorite Swedish raw-punk band, their place in history is inarguable. So with that being said, here's their track from the new "Svenska punkklassiker vol. 2" compilation. Enjoy!

Moderat Likvidation - Nitad

Classic Swedish hardcore/crust act Mob 47 has parted ways with vocalist Jugga. Guitarist Åke will take over in his stead.

US-based hardcore label Havoc Records will be reissuing an old 7" from Swedish act Mob 47 this coming summer. They're also sending Regulations back out on tour over here and have posted preliminary dates here:
