Pour pré-commande : firstname.lastname@example.org
Voilà l'annonce (en anglais je n'ai pas traduit) :
"For those who don’t know yet A.V.O., it means APPREHENDED VIOLENCE ORDER, they are from Sydney in Australia and they ARE one of the best international hardcore punk band in the 2000’s…
They started in late 90’s with ex members of FORWARD DEFENCE and THE ROCKS. In 1998 they recorded a demo tape, only 5 copies were made : 4 copies went to each band member and the 5th went to Henk SMIT from the great hardcore label KANGAROO records.
The followed only killer releases : 2 releases on the great aussie label SHORT FUSE records : their split EP with THE BLURTERS from down under, also their EP poetically named “Fuck positive hardcore”… after some compilations appearance on Australia and on KANGAROO records, Henk SMIT released also another EP “Solutions”, their split EP with THE RUNNAMUCKS and finally their only LP called “Domestic violence kept the neighborhood quiet”…
The band finally disbanded in late 2009, every release they recorded are essential. They played without any compromise a bestial form of hardcore punk, influenced mainly by the early 80’s US and Japanese scene with a huge “fuck off” attitude. HARDCORE, “the way it should be”…
Until this day, their demo tape from 1998 has stayed unreleased (except one song featured on KANGAROO records’ compilation “Loved by few... hated by most”. WHO CARES? records does 13 years later as posthumous release and tribute to this essential band from the 2000’s this release on one-sided 7 inch.
It contains the complete session from the 1998 demo, with 2 covers songs (one of D.R.I. and one of THE FREEZE)
