BÖHSE ONKELZ "Heilige lieder" (The famous German band's 1992 album. Musically somewhat more rocking than on the previous album "Wir ham' noch lange nicht genug", and singer Kevin's vocals are more melodic and warmer than before. As always a lot of the songs have a hoigh singalong factor even if you don't speak a word of German..) 15 EUR

CZECH & SLOVAK STREET KIDS VOL.3 (Great 26 band / 26 song compilation showcasing the best of the Czech and Slovak street bands, mostly skinhead bands, but also some more punky ones and some hardcore.

DANNY DIABLO & THE VENDETTA "When worlds collide" (The Vendetta are a bunch of angry Italians who like to mix up genres, but who are a hardcore outfit with a few metal and punk cravings. In other words: they are loud. Their new album is a joint effort with American Danny Diablo a.k.a Lord Ezec (of Skarhead fame), and is bursting at the seems with guests from various hardcore and rap bands. Features great some hardcore and tracks with rap mixed in à la Beastie Boys.) 13 EUR

DREI FÜR DEUTSCHLAND VOL.2 (15-song 3-way split with the German RAC bands Words Of Anger, Das Letzte Aufgebot and old-timers Oidoxie.) 15 EURGREENLAND WHALEFISHERS / SMZB "Joining forces" (16 track best of release from the folky punkers of GWF! As a bonus you get 7 songs from SMZB, a punkrock band from China and tourmates of the GWF. They're one of the oldest punk bands in China and the only celtic punk band there.) 10 EUR

MISANDAO "Proud of the way" (A skinhead band from Beijing, China who play raw, old school Oi! with a definite punk touch. Nothing new or groundbreaking, but interesting obviously for the exotic aspect. Ambiguous politics and more to the left, but they seem to be confused kids... The CD contains 18 songs, some in (broken) English, some in Chinese and also a PC-video track.) 13 EUR

NOIE WERTE "20" (20 years of Noie Werte and only their 4th full-length. Solid RAC rock like we're used to hear from them as well as the beautiful ballad "Totale leere", the country-like "Plan B" with stand-up bass and saxophone and "Schwarzes licht" where Steffen gets assisted by female vocals. As always Noie Werte stand out with their smart political lyrics, all of which can be found in the booklet.) 15 EUR

S.O.T. "Sed och tradition" (Very folk sounding Swedish viking-rock-band grown from the band "Skymningstid". They sing about pagan morals and traditions, myths and legends and nordic history. The dual female vocals make them unique in the scene.) 15 EUR

SOUNDTRACK DER STRASSE VOL.1 & VOL.2 (33-song double CD label compilation plus 1 bonus video track, and this for not even the price of a single CD album.
