British Troops Shoot Londonderry Rioters (1971)

Young rioters trying to escape from clouds of CS gas released by the troops in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, 8th July 1971.

The picture above was taken by the photographer Don McCullin, who is particularly recognized for his war photography and images of urban strife. That was back in 1971 in Londonderry, Northern Ireland when two men killed by the British Army.

Some of the worst violence in the town for three years flared up that afternoon when a crowd of 200 gathered in Lecky Street at the news of an army shooting earlier in the day.

Welder and former boxer Seamus Cusack, 28, died in Letterkenny District Hospital of a gunshot wound. Troops opened fire, initially with rubber bullets and CS gas, but they failed to disperse the crowd. The rioters retaliated by throwing three nail bombs. The army returned fire. One man was shot in the stomach and five soldiers are reported to have been injured by the missiles. The man was dead on arrival at hospital. He was identified as 19-year-old George Desmond Beattie of Donegal Street, Bogside.

There was a lull in the violence after Mr Beattie had been shot and a group of factory girls marched in silence through the area carrying black bags.

This picture was used by Killing Joke for the cover of their debut album in 1980.

Raxola - 1978 - s/t

In 1976, Yves Kengen had just left the lengendary Bastard and decided to form his own new act. That's when Raxola formed. Much appreciated for their rough pop punk songs and their somewhat socially and politically committed lyrics. They went on a series of gigs and tours with The Kids, The Jam and many others.

Here we have their debut album from 1978, which is now a collector's item. Enjoy!

Crude SS - The System That You Hate...Is The System You Support

Crude S.S. first surfaced in Sweden in the summer of 1982 with their self-released demo. The "S.S." on their name stands for "Society System". They fit in well with the established lot of Swedish hardcore punk of that era. Although their sound was somewhat unique and a bit different from the likes of Anti Cimex, Crudity, Disarm, etc. Always raw, shifting from slow and sludgey to fast and aggressive, coarse vocals and unrefined anger defined the their sound.

They have definitely earned an eternal name for themselves among the international DIY hardcore punk community and have served as siginificant influence for countless bands from all corners of the globe. They propably disbanded around 1986, the year that released the last official compilation album that they appeared on.

With very little available or even existant, in terms of official releases, they are easily one of the most bootlegged bands in international hardcore punk history next to the likes of Mob 47 from Sweden and Confuse from Japan.

Here we have their great "Who'll Survive" EP from 1983, compilation tracks and one live track. Enjoy!
