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.

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!
