TOUCH

The Darkness Reflects LP Version City Blues

Budapest, Hungary's Touch has been refining their brand of '80s, NYHC-influenced groove for three short years - culminating to their debut LP, "The Darkness Reflects," on Version City Blues. They keep their sound moving and interesting by nodding to trippy fuzz, psyched-out reverb, and dive-bomb laden thrash; while always firmly maintaining their hardcore roots and structure. With two EPs out, 2016's self-released "Illusion Of Truth" and 2017's "Rearrangement" on Chiller Than Most, the band finds themselves among stalwarts Mental, Soul Control, Blacklisted, and the almighty Supertouch. This is the blue vinyl version, limited to 100 copies.

END IT

s/t CS Flatspot

End It walks down the path their Baltimore, MD forefathers paved. Sonically reminiscent of the golden era of that harder, early-'90s east coast sound and with lyrics that are unapologetically real, this release takes the listener to a dark, Baltimore city alley way. A throwback to when it wasn't about trends or who you know, but when the music spoke for itself and was raw, unpolished aggression. CS includes digital download.

END IT

One Way Track CS Flatspot

In January of 2020, Flatspot Records will release the "One Way Track" EP, the long-awaited follow up to End It's 2017 self-titled demo. "One Way Track" displays a more mature and focused band, due largely to a change in perspective provided by major life changes that the band members have recently experienced, including fatherhood. However, these recent developments have not tamed the band in any way; in fact, they are more in touch with their surroundings than ever before, and express their mentality with an urgency and aggression that is sorely missing from today's hardcore scene.

The Story Of H8000 Hardcore 1977-1999

by Hans Verbeke Book FX7

THE STORY OF H8000 HARDCORE 1977-1999 takes an in-depth look at the first and second wave of punk and H8000 Hardcore from the province of WestFlanders, in the South-West of Belgium.

It all begins in 1978, when a near-legendary Sex Pistols/P.I.G.Z. show in Kortrijk gets cancelled. From that point on, the story rips by like a runaway train, up until the turn of the millennium. From the early 90s on, the H8000 hardcore scene became one of the most active and influential punk scenes on the European mainland. Its musical style and philosophy had - and still have - a major influence on bands and individuals all over the globe. The personalities presented and opinions expressed in this book are as varied as the music these people have created since. This is your chance to hear the real story, straight from the mouth of key players in bands like Rise Above, Nations On Fire, Blindfold, Shortsight, Spirit Of Youth, Congress, Liar, Regression, Deformity, Spineless, as well as many record labels and zealous fans from the heydays of H8000. Dig into heartfelt memories about camaraderie, dedication and insecurity in the form of happy/sad tour diaries, gig anecdotes and dirty squat confessions. In the dark ages before desktop publishing, album artwork had to be pasted together by hand. If you were a kid in those pre-web days, xeroxed zines were your main source for information. Bands had to rely on friends and bands in other cities to get them shows if they wanted to tour. In keeping with that DIY spirit, you will find out who those people were and get the stories behind their contributions first-hand. While the book?s imagery sparks the imagination, the commentary sprinkled throughout will let you relive the thrilling old-school times of the era. More than anything, this book will show you how crazy those times truly were. With an immense number of bands spawning from an area the size of just a few blocks in NYC. The H8000 scene of the 90s proved that willpower, youthfulness and creativity can overcome any obstacle. Those kids just did their own thing, caused a stir and together, shaped a musical movement that put Belgium on the map.

This compendium is filled to the brim with beautiful and compelling stories, cut-and paste-flyers, never-before-seen photos, sharpie playlists and a detailed
discography of every significant H8000 release. Read on and discover how H8000 helped change the face of hardcore punk, just like L.A., New York or Boston did.
