V/A - H'Artcore 1981

H'Artcore is a compilation that was published by H'Art Records with various punk bands from the Ruhrpott area, where some variables of the local punk scene, such bands as Upright Citizens were present today, others are only here to hear and then fade away. In 1999 the label Teenage Rebel Records has been re-released this record. The name of the compilation is a play on words and refers to the represented music on this album, which was then still referred to punk as it does not use the term 'Deutschpunk'. "The somewhat strange title is derived from the name of the label H'Art in 1981 and still new term Hardcore, which at that time for the harder, faster punk stood here on the sampler (the term German Punk was not in use)." Well, that was back then. A brilliant soundtrack indeed and even nowadays very audible.

  1. Hi WDM! I got here thanks to what you wrote about Luzibär... Sadly the link is dead... Could you re-up?

    I know this comp is a classic of Deutschpunksgeschichte but for some reason it's still missing in my collection! Yes Upright Citizens are the best known but some others are familiar names (for me at least): Bluttat, Idiots, Luzibär of course. I was never suprised about the title, knowing it came from H'Art (Upright Citizens first label) it seemed very natural :D

    Saludos,

    Fernando :)
