Northern Ireland, 1998, Strength In An Age Of Weakness Records, CD
A rarity for Ireland, especially in the late 90's, a SXE hardcore band. Features a member of that other infamous Irish SXE band Circle Again. Well recorded and it does whip me back to the sort of hardcore I was listening to in the late 90's :) Thanks to George of the excellent xxx Irish Edge xxx blog for sending this on.
Thanks to Tommy for sending me on the pdf's of this late 80's Ireland zine with a very international slant. I also love how this zine contains crosswords, you fucking never get that in zines now! "Down in the Hole was a zine done mostly by Dave and Michael from Three RRing Psychosis/Killercrust with some limited input from me from 1988/89. Focused mostly on the international HC scene of the time it had other bits and pieces including prose contributions from Smeggy Angus. #2 has a short story in Angus' Sven Hassel style.
Interviews include Ripcord, Ooperation Ivy, Larm, Stikky, So Much Hate, No Comment, 7 Minutes of nausea etc." - Tommy Trousers
