JPAR-009: Acid Elephant - Defenestration of a Dying Mammoth: aLive 2012 OUT NOW (and some other news)

It's the end of the world! It's the birthday of Acid Elephant, a Pori/Turku based stoner/doom group. This live cassette says ”goodbye” to their old lineup and ”hello” to their new lineup. It's recorded on three different occasions; January 6th at Klubi, Turku, January 13th at Monttu Music Club, Pori and February 4th at Varjobaari, Tampere. Listen to the songs here, but please note that the tape version omits the song Sway (In my Sleep), due to the wishes of the band. The tape still contains over one hour of elephant stomping. Slipcase covers, green cassettes. Limited to 50 copies.

The price is only three euros, plus postage (70 cents). For orders, write to piparnakkeli.kamakarhu AT or ask the Elephants themselves!


Lord Fist - Spark for the Night is sold out. You can ask it from Ektro and Heavy Merch will receive these tapes sometime after Christmas. 

There's not much Bathoven tapes left, but the second edition is in the works.


Ajatuksen Valo 3,5 is sold out as well. There's still a plenty of AV4 zines left and the fifth issue should be out either in January or in February. We'll see.


Puukotus/Musta Oksennus split tape is delayed a bit, and won't be released until January. Another forthcoming tape release will be announced then.


Since the holidays are at hand, I promise to do absolutely nothing related to JPAR. Please feel free to write, but don't expect anything to happen until next week. Besides the postal services aren't functioning during the Christmas time anyway.

Happy holidays!

Ajatuksen Valo 3,5 OUT NOW

Yet another issue of Ajatuksen Valo. This sorry excuse for a zine is made in the old school kind of way. Apart from the cover, it doesn't feature a computer layout at all, but is compiled from various pieces of paper glued together. 20 pages of pure eyesore. Contents include:

- Left Cold interview (13 hardcore)
- A couple of columns (or such, written by yours truly)
- Gig review by legendary KÄRSÄMÄKI
- Crossword puzzle!
- Ads!

Note that this is not Ajatuksen Valo issue number 4, which will be out later this year. In fact, it's almost finished. There's a variety of reasons why this "therapy issue" is numbered as 3,5.

The price is only one euro from hand to hand or 1,5 euros including the postage. There will be some kind of a bundle pack with AV4, but we'll get back to that once the details surrounding the fourth issue are clear.

As usual, place your orders to piparnakkeli.kamakarhu AT

JPAR-007: Total Recall - Blood, Sweat & Broken Knees: Live 2012, AVAILABLE AT THE HOSPITALS NEAR YOU

Hardcore, anger and misfortune! This tape has hopefully captured some chaotic live magic of Jyväskylä based Total Recall, which has even led to some injuries as the title suggests.

Here are two shows from them. Side Ilokivi was recorded in April 2012 in Jyväskylä, while Side Suisto was recorded in September 2012 in Hämeenlinna. Side Suisto was recorded from the mixing table and Side Ilokivi was recorded with a tape recorder, so the sides sound a bit different, but don't let that fool you. Ilokivi is previously released on their bandcamp-page, but Suisto is previously unreleased. You could actually describe this tape as a official bootleg, so don't expect anything too fancy.

The price is three euros plus postage. You can also ask these tapes from the band itself. Distributors, please feel free to contact, and the trades are also more than welcome!

Please note that there's Total Recall's fabulous 10-incher "What I've Seen" available again! You can order both of these releases for 15 euros, including the postage.

As always, throw some mail to piparnakkeli.kamakarhu AT

JPAR-006: Bathoven - Power tape OUT NOW

Legendary metal from the Castle Bathoven, Lapinjärvi region. Bathoven was a short-lived metal group which only rehearsed and recorded in January 2012, but since then Bathoven has reached a cult status among the most devoted full moon worshippers. This cassette is their only output, including four tracks of blistering old school metal. Chains, leather, bats and metal! These mysterious chaps are associated with Lord Fist, Horros, Left Cold and Chalice For Your Loss, for and example.

Limited edition of 50 hand numbered copies. Lyric sheet included. Green cassettes. DIY, so it looks very käppä. When you place an order, please tell me if you want the tape with light blue or green covers. There are also red covers available, but they are strictly limited to band members.

JPAR-004: Ward & True Lords of Vatican

Tampere-based Ward plays atmospheric sludge/doom/crust. Ward has already released a great split-7" with the grindcore band Hävitys, and they will release their debut album later this year. True Lords of Vatican is a side project of one certain man involved with Sink. So everything crumbles slowly and ends in a noisy mess!

Co-release with Black Floyd's Tapes.

The price is four (4) euros plus postage. Distros, beware.

For orders, write to piparnakkeli.kamakarhu AT

perjantai 3. elokuuta 2012


A follow-up for their "Brutal Ethnology" -EP (released late 2010), the second record by Sircuscus has finally descended from the top of the totem. "Traumambo" is a bit more polished and more diverse than "Brutal Ethnology", and expands the musical visions of this three piece group. They even sing the entire LP in spanish. Eleven songs. File under: Artpunk. For the fans of NoMeansNo, Deep Turle, Mr. Bungle, Melvins and such. Or not. Listen to the samples here. By the way, this band has nothing to do with the band Sirkus CousCous and disco.  If you ask me, this is closer to punk than prog, but I think it's too much for the real punks to take.

Co-release with Traumambo Records.

Because it's still kreisikesä, there's a generous offer valid until the end of August. The record will cost you 15 euros including postage inside Finland. Normal price is 10 euros.

For orders, write to piparnakkeli.kamakarhu ÄT 

DISTROS! Ask for prices and trades are also more than welcome!

If you don't want to support me, then you can buy the record from some distributors: Johnny Park Avenue Distro (Tampere [oh wait, that's me!]), Pupu's Bistro (Jyväskylä), Tuska & Ahdistus (Tampere), Creative Class War (Oulu), Mustat Levyt (Hämeenlinna) and Karkia Mistika (Pori). Also Traumambo Records will (of course) sell these records in Pori region.

And yeah, this is a vinyl record. CD version is in the works.

UPDATES!!!! (7.7.2012)

Some great products are in the hands of Johnny Park! Ajatuksen Valo # 2 has spread to various distros, and this distro has officially moved from Pori to Tampere, though Johnny Park A. is quite mobile distro so your records can be shipped to Pori and Hämeenlinna without postage. Ask more.

Total Recall - What I've Seen 10"

Tough skater dudes from Jyväskylä dwell deep within their troubled minds and deliver some quality hardcore in the process. They have evolved, and their version of hardcore is something complete else than fast and short bursts of anger. Finnish "My War". And yeah, this record was made by hippies.

Ruori Records / Face Your Gods / United Shoebrothers / Parta Records. 2012.

10 €


Ydinperhe - Meistä ei tullut mitään 7"

Second 7" from these HKI-area hardcore punks. Again they are very pissed off at a variety of topics. That's life and this is hardcore. Live with it and this record.

Hakaniemi Hardcore. 2012.

5 €


Watch Your Back - Last Man Standing 7"

Yet another hardcore record, but with a different touch than Ydinperhe and Total Recall. That boar on the cover isn't there for nothing.

WYB DIY. 2012.

5 €


Hävitys - Ei paluuta 7"

Qualitygrind from Jyväskylä, with two vocalists and highly melodic touch. Not that they sing about puppies, flowers and good life, though.

Self-released. 2012.

5 €


Upright - Losing Touch

This hardcore band from Jyväskylä shared the same split-7" and a tour with Foreseen. Metallic hardcore with an attitude. Attitude? This band has it. And good songs and musicianship, of course.

Street Survival Records / Collision Records / Green Menace Records. 2012.

5 €


Blue Cross - I Am Death - cassette

The second output from this canadian post-punk duo who released their first album "Mass Hysteria" last year. Now with better production, more intriguing songs and creepier atmosphere.

Pain Frites Records. 2012.

4 €


Arrestum - When the Missiles Cut the Sunlight

A LOT better than the price tag suggests. They just released their brand new 7" EP, but their first EP is still available. Clear Tragedy/HHIG influences can be found.

Ruori Records. 2010.

1 €


Left Cold - Live at Suisto -cassette

A live bootleg with the band's approval. Recorded in winter 2012 at one show, which supposed to be their record release party. This bootleg is recorded on old finnish iskelmä/humppa tapes found from the thrift store. Recycling is what this country needs!


1 €


Squalor - Degredation

A one-man side project by one of those Horros-dudes. Lofi crust! Also these tapes are recorded on those same shitty cassettes as those Left Cold tapes are.


1 €


Kancer Kountry # 3 -zine

The third issue of this marvellous zine includes the interviews by Bolt, Eye For All, Blossom Hill, Melusaaste, Laama-zine, No One is Safe and a comic guy Aapo Rapi.

Also the Noituus 7" is available again. This is all, folks!

Went out of town again. Here's some additions to the distro;

Treblinka - Muistatko...? CD

Legendary hardcore-band, which featured members who later on went to play in Juggling Jugulars and Klamydia. Strong Toinen Vaihtoehto-connections. Don't let the Klamydia-connection fool you, this is among the best 80s hardcore bands which never came from Vaasa City. Contains their FULL discography.

100nisti Levyt. 2009.

4 €


Nistikko - Totaalinen Hävitys CS

Grindcore in the way it's meant to be played. A bit lofi at times, but that's only a good thing. Contains their full-lenght album, demos and EPs, ranging from 2007 to 2011. Here's some catchy tunes to blast out off your ghettoblaster whilst on the way to the sunny beach! Check 'em out!

Hisstapes. 2012

3 €


Ill Omen / Get Stiches - Split 7"

Turku Hardcore, in a metallic way. These squirrels rip your heart out and feed it your mother. Two songs from both bands. They're quite young bands, yet they know how to play their TCHC. Also some guest vocalists are involved. Recommended.

Poolside Records / Killing the Legacy Records. 2010.

They are currently working on new material, so this document of their live magic is merely a sample of their true potential. Chill out with this tape before Salaneuvosto unleashes another dub storm over us all. Recorded at Haukijärvi, summer 2011. What a magical evening! Weren't here myself, so that assumption is purely based on my imagination.

Monotonous? Yes.
Instrumental? Yes.
Captivating? Hell yes.

Co-release with Black Floyd's Tapes. Limited to 50 copies. 40 minutes.

4,5 € including postage (otherwise it's 4 €). You can order it by sending email to yours truly at piparnakkeli.kamakarhu ÄT

Since I've been gone... (some updates)

Been away for a while, but here's some updates!

The Escapist -cassette

Great new punk band from Jyväskylä with influences from The Zounds, Leatherface, Bad Religion, Crass etc. Melodic touch, five songs. Really moved my heart, so it's recommended that you should get this one, too. A poster-like lyric sheet and a download voucher are also included.

Visit their bandcamp and listen it for yourself.

Ruori Records / Parta Records. 2012.

2 €


Bad Jesus Experience - II 10"

Don't let the kittens fool you! This record is about furious and straight-to-the-point hardcore. Ten inches, ten songs and each of them rips you apart. Witness these people playing live.

Tuska & Ahdistus / Kämäset Levyt / Nunchakupunk / Grey Inferno Records. 2012.

Got only one of these. And yes, Bandcamp is also invented.

8 €


Hotguitars / Drake's Medicine - Split 7"

Some experimental stuff, which would make a lovely present for your grandmother, assuming she still holds proper equipment to listen to this one split of a rollercoaster. Being dead or alive is not an issue.
Weird and noisy. Also there's some instructions for you how to listen, handle, clean and store this record.

Porigian Hotguitars-side holds three separate songs, and one of them is divided into five sections as Grind Sinphony. On the other side, Drake's Medicine is responsible of one peaceful, not that chaotic song.

Kevyt Nostalgia / Sweetcore Records. 2004.

4 €


Ill Blood -zine

A fresh new zine from Turku of Finland. Interviews with Foreseen, Upright, The Rival Mob and Green Menace Records. There's also some photos. Hardcore.

Xeroxed, so black & white. A5, 30something pages.

Left Cold -offer (Limited)

The next bloke who orders the "Symptoms of Our Time" -seven incher also receives a free copy of Left Cold's first demo. CD-R, three songs. Only 150 pieces of this were made in late 2009. Three dudes out of four (now LC is a 5-piece band) still play in the band.  Perhaps this demo gives only a short insight on their true potential, but it's still a interesting chapter of Left Cold's history.

AV # 1 AVAILABLE AGAIN + Distro up to date, tadam (3.5.2012)

Got some more copies of Ajatuksen Valo # 1 -zine. It's still 2 euros + postage, or via hand-to-hand in Pori-area. The additional zines aren't ready because Johnny Park forgot them completely, so they will be available a bit later, maybe next week. Now make some orders and get something to read before they're from JPAR or local distros (Karkia Mistika [Pori], Psychedelica & Diskordia [Oulu], Räkälevyt [Turku] Tuska & Ahdistus, Tampere Hardcore Coalition + Kämäset Levyt quite soon [Tampere], Face Your Gods [Hämeenlinna] or Pupu's Bistro [Jyväskylä]) before they're sold out again. There won't be a third pressing. Promise!

Plus some pieces of plastic are also added to the distro:


Aura Saturnal - The Will Return

Cosmic yet noisy and chaotic black metal. Aura Saturnal is a one-man side project of Luxixul Sumering Auter, the band involved with Tampere-based Cosmic Church. Analog 4-track recording guarantees the kvltest lo-fi experience. Two tracks.

Ancient Tomb. 2011.

5 €. Only few copies available.


We still have Facebook-page. Go and dig it! Otherwise Daddy Cool will show you some respect.

Distro updates 29.4.2012 (CICUTOXIN & KÄPYKAARTI)

These bands know how to roll, but aren't afraid to use some unorthodox instruments as well.


Cicutoxin - Demo 2010 tape

Cicuta virosa is a venomous plant often met in various wet locations. Cicutoxin is the lethal poison in that plant, and also a doom/sludge band from central Finland. Cicutoxin recorded these six fantastic pieces of doom gospel already in 2010, but this monster with elegant sleeves wasn't unleashed until now. They also have a violin, but don't use it in a My Dying Bride-manner. If you're into doomy kind of music, then this is your poison. Instead of renewing your prescription, get some Cicutoxin-tape instead to scare off those demons inside your head.

Listen to some samples here. And by the way, the actual cover differs from the version presented here.

Käpykaarti - Helppoja ratkaisuja moniulotteisiin ongelmiin 7"

Käpykaarti is a punk band, that should be known by just about everybody. Käpykaarti continues the work which was started by bands like Olotila, Pax Americana and Alakulttuurin Kusipäät. But let's forget them, because Käpykaarti is a story of it's own. A story fueled with political lyrics and a saxophone. This is not their first record, but at least it's their first output on magical seven inches. Four songs full of solutions. Solution? Käpykaarti, the band of the jolly fishermen! And punk is not only about the music? Who would have thought...

Distro updates 28.4.2012 (URBAN UNREST!)

Urban Unrest / Parental Shock -Split LP

Urban Unrest worships USHC, and are not ashamed of it at all, while Parental Shock (which consists of some former Drowning Nation -members) takes care of the punkier side of the cake. And the cover is drawn by Brian Walsby. Use this record to scare your parents and get your hc-kicks, while keeping your middle finger pointed at the system!

United Shoebrothers / Rabbit's Foot Records. 2012.

10 €


Urban Unrest - On a String 7"

A great seven-incher from these HKI-based hardcore kids! Perhaps not the best record they have released, but "On a String" certainly isn't far from it. These six songs have enough power to demolish your home hoods entirely! Hardcore with your square pattern shirts on!

United Shoebrothers / Rabbit's Foot Records. 2009.

4 €


Ajatuksen Valo # 1 is temporarily sold out, but the second pressing is on it's way. Meanwhile, you can ask it from at least from Tuska & Ahdistus, Pupu's Bistro, Psychedelica, Karkia Mistika and Face Your Gods. They still have some copies. OR you can order it straight from Johnny Park, and the zine will be sent to you once the second pressing is in my hairy hands.

Distro updates 20.4.2012 (Carbonized & The Hindu Gods of Love)

These babies have just arrived to JPAR-headquarters:

Carbonized 4 Way Split - Turronizer / Ebola / Sposa in Alto Mare / Hippycrack -tape

Turronizer (Spain), Ebola (Italy) and Sposa in Alto Mare (Italy) represent gritty grindcore, while Hippycrack (Pori, Finland) is the ambassador of more grittier harsh noise. Perfect blend? "Make tape not CDR". Only 300 copies made, and there's only around a few dozen of these babies in Finland.

4 € with postage included. If you order it with something else, it'll be 3,50 €. I got this with both pink and white covers, so please let me know which color you want.


The Hindu Gods of Love - Hometown Hop 10"

Rock your guts out with The Hindu Gods of Love! Six songs and ten inches are enough to keep any rock 'n' roll -addicts satisfied. Smells like garage. If you're going home, then make sure that these Gods are with you!

Psychedelica Records / Krautfish Tapes. 2011.

8 €


Marsuli-zines and Garden of Worm -tapes are sold out. And there's not much of Ajatuksen Valo-zines left... so be quick or be illiterate!

Ajatuksen Valon TR-haastiksesta puuttui jonkin verran tekstiä, joka ilmestyy nelisivuisessa liitteessä. Liite sujahtaa postittamattomien (eli lähes kaikkien) lehtien väliin.

Tästä epämääräisestä paperisilpusta on tulossa Ajatuksen Valo 1,5 zinen ykkösnumeron väliin. DIY!

Still alive

We're still alive. JPAR-001 is almost here, as well as JPAR-002 and JPAR-001,5. JPAR-003 and JPAR-004 are in the works.
