In order to make this blog more interesting between the releases of the Ashen, I decide post some great stuffs here, joining a nice source from hopeless punk reading to a distorting source from d-beat nightmare.

Dissober is/was a Swedish d-beat raw punk band that started in the beginning of 1992 and with influences of Discharge, Anti-Cimex and Motorhead, the band first appeared in 1993 on the VA – Really Fast 8 with the tracks America Did This and Bomb Again, and then in 1994 on a VA – Distortion To Hell with the sounds Bödlar I Vita Rockar, In The Shit and Days Of Pride.

Finally, still in 1994, they release the Sober Life... No Way! CD/LP by Distortion Records that would be it one of the 90´s greatest releases with awesome hits as Going Under, America Did This, Full Scale Atomic War, the hymn Sober Life... No Way!......... but a cover of Grave New World where they show as Discharge should really play.

Sober Life… No Way! is an addictive stuff and I could hear it 24 hours per day over many years, but the motivation of it for an alcohol abusive use is really dangerous. With 14 fucking drunk dis-tracks this CD was ripped in 320 kbps and with all inserts for the your highest pleasure.

In 1996 the band recorded ten new sounds, where three of these ended up on a great distorting and furious split 7’’ with Downward Spiral by Aparat Records. In despite of the long hiatus of the band, more some tracks or maybe the other seven unreleaseds will be released by D-Takt & Råpunk Records as a 7” still in 2008. So, if you´re a lover of these drunk d-beat maniacal punks, stay tuned!!

Let´s get drunk with this amazing band!! Fucking gooooooddddddddd!!!

The ashen zine is a raw punk publication dedicated to the punk culture (music, aesthetics, expressions and philosophy) and to the philosophical thinking, being fully written in english for acess of everyone in punk community.

Here, you will can find interviews with raw punk, d-beat and crust bands, reviews of the interviewed bands´s records, old and dead band reviews, several aphorisms, texts and the chaos and despair to which all we are condemned.

The interviewed bands are bands that I listen and like, and in this first number, you´ll can enjoy interviews with Warvictims (raw d-beat maniacs from Sweden), Audio Kollaps (grind/death/d-beat brutality from Germany) and Demarche (raw punk as fuck from Czech Republic), plus a review about Shitlickers (raw punk legend from Sweden).

I did try to develop a zine with the better quality possible for a free publication, considering my current resources. My understanding of the english language is limited, so, surely, there´s will some errors in this matter.

Well, people interested in printed copies of this zine can get in touch by e-mail, sending your address or download it via blog in electronic format (pdf). Feel free!!!

Please, before of you request printed copies, download the zine via blog. If you enjoy of what you readed so I can send to you printed copies. Thanks and cheers!!
