NO IDEA: Jag Hatar Punk: LP

Originally recorded in 1986, this is fast, crossover-ish hardcore punk from Finspang, Sweden. If you’ve clawed your way through the masters and you’re on the hunt for obscure, international nuggets of thrash, Beer City (and Just 4 Fun, who released this as a 7” in 2015) are truly trustworthy guides. But don’t forget about the backyards and rec centers, where teenagers are still picking up instruments and unleashing belligerently delightful racket like this. –Daryl (Beer City)
