HAPPY KADAVER: Self Liberation: 12”EP

Between kraut rock and the N.Y. band Kraut, it’s nearly impossible to find internet resources on kraut punk, but I’m feeling like that’s the subgenre umbrella Happy Kadaver falls in. Slam-worthy punk riffing topped off with indignant vocals like a German Johnny Rotten. Favorite aspect of this release is the awesome painting of someone cutting barbed wire with a pair of wire cutters that spans the front and back covers. –Daryl (Self-released, happykadaverband.de)
