BGK





jonestown aloha + white male dumbinance + comp tracks, 1983/1984
nothing can go wrogn!, 1986
Zer! Zer! Zer! Lazer megazer! This is not just another classic band, this is one of the VERY FUCKING BEST things that have ever happened to hardcore worldwide and music in general. I bought the P.E.A.C.E. double comp LP in 84 or 85 and of course, I was floored by many, many bands here - this is the comp that made me discover GISM, Septic Death, ODFX, Wretched, CCM, Articles of Faith etc. so the bar is really, really high. But one track was standing out even higher than anything else on the comp, the ravaging "arms race" from BGK (version included in 1st rar). At the time I had already been a lot into satan via Venom, Slayer, Bathory, Hellhammer etc. but then BGK finally emerged in my discography as the true revelation of TOTALLY MALE MUSIC !!! AT LAST SOMETHING TRULY FAST AND HEAVY !!! From this day on I could only track down anything BGK would release. I am all excited by this nostalgia. What a hot era !!!
BGK play brutal, viciously thrashing hardcore - heavy as fuck like Discharge (check the hammering "white male dumbinance" ep) but faster than MDC and with top class musicians even to today's standards. This is mercilessly tight and masterfully toying with the dynamics of their insane intensity, darkness and speed. Technically they matched any of the bullet-belts/flying V knights of metal and had better arrangements and solos! Brilliant musicians playing the best hardcore catalog!!! BGK match Ludichrist, MDC, Raw Power, Rattus... ZER!!!! The 2nd album "nothing can go wrogn!" is the ultimate monster of ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!! BGK !!!!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! !!!!!!!!
CD rip from the AT reissue. This CD does not contain the last song from "nothing" so I ripped it from my LP. I think the song from the "viva umkhonto" compilation is missing to make this a complete discography. I have this LP 5000 miles away, please wait.
UPDATE: Stogref DID rip Viva Umkhonto which contains the last BGK track!!! And now the BGK discography is available in its glorious and sleazy entirety - better than sex! ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! Merci Steph !!!

  1. Waouh, un grand merci car je ne connais que le Ep "white male dumbinance" des Balthasar Gerards Kommando, une bonne occase de me rattraper!
    Je suis en train de me dire que j'ai le lp "viva umkhonto" et que je pourrait le ripper, c'est le titre "nothing can go wrong" qui est dessus, je l'avais achetée juste pour les Victims Family à l'époque, et c'est une bonne compile pour un 'benefit compilation'... Mordam is good! :)
