Yalta High Life lp ( Power It Up)

$13.99

"Here it is at last. A legit re press of this Finnish hardcore classic
from 1984. This is repressed under license by Power It Up records of
Germany with North American distribution by Havoc. I know that comps get
a bad rap these days as random assemblies of bands "throwaway tracks".
You have to put yourself back in time to the good old days of 1984 when
hardcore was still a new, raw and urgent form of music. At that time
comps made a lot of sense to document the explosive new scene and most
bands chose their BEST songs to put on a comp rather than their worst.
Yalta Hi Life was originally released by Finland's Barrabas records in
1984. Featured are three to eight tracks each by Terveet Kadet, Varaus,
Aparat, Kaaos, Aivoproteesi and KTMK. I'm particularly fond of this
style of comp because you get about a 7" worth of material from each of
the six bands. The TK and Kaaos songs are raging, and most people will
probably buy this because those bands are pretty well known. KTMK is at
their most hardcore/punk sounding on this release. Varaus can't be
touched on any format. Aparat is not so well known, but still tear it
up. And Aivoproteesi are really good and pretty unknown outside Finland
as I think this material is their only release. A really solid comp
start to finish if you are a die hard or just getting into 80's Finnish
hardcore." - Havoc Records
