Poikkeus

Poikkeus are a Japanese hardcore/crust/whatever band that want so bad to be from Scandinavia, that they have a Finnish name and a logo reminiscent of every European hc band of the 80s. Not terribly original, but this EP is so fucking blazing it's hard for me to care that these guys aren't very imaginative.

Hi Aesop,hope all is well with you :)
Funny,the cover of this is a complete rip off of Riistetyt's Skitsophrenia mini album.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

This ep came out on Crust War Records in, I believe, 2004. In other words it's long OOP. They also made an appearance on the All Crusties Spending Loud Night DVD & the Konton Damaging Ear Noise comp cd/lp.

Correctamundo anonymous. Really solid great ep. Mine was printed on "gloppy" paper stock...were they all like this?

There should be a rehearsal of them hiding somewhere on Damaging Noise (ripped from a tape Luc/Gasmask Terror sent me...credit where it's due yo). --S

they were all on the gloppy paper stock

there are a ton of bands from japan pretending to be finnish now...and all of them are really good.

persevere, laukaus, poikkeus, as well as a few others.
