TERROR FOR JESUS (PIF 20)
TFJ kom som et blindskudd i mørket vinteren 1990 og forlot moder jord sommeren 1991. En kort hektisk karriere med en håndfull konserter, mye latter, god drikke og en legendarisk 7" innspilling som skulle komme ut 11 år etter bandet ble oppløst. Vil du vite mer så les her. Pønk eller HC, who fucking care, dette er rett fra levra høyoktan PØNK uansett innsnevring. Liker du høy musikk som er brutal og vakker på samme tid er dette bandet for deg.
"Introducing YO! CORE" kom ut på Requiem Productions i 10 (ja du leste riktig ti) eksemplarer på ekstra tykk vinyl i 2002. Den kom da i en plastpose med et hefte med historien om bandet og de som hadde vært innvolvert i det, samt en badge som bare finnes i 10 eksemplarer. Utgivelsen var selvsagt utsolgt før den kom fra presseriet og er i dag en av de sjeldneste norske platene som finnes.
TFJ - Diskografi + cover
Terror For Jesus was a local punk act from Bodø that lastet little over a year between 1990 and 1991. In that short period of time they did a few concerts and a 7" EP recording. So why bother to give time to such a small part of the punk history? Well the 7" EP could probably had been one of the best Norwegian punk releases in the 90`s (hasn`t it been for it was not released before 2002). The band didn`t care for doing the right thing. They did what they wanted from Toy Dolls fun lyrics to lyrics Bad Brains or Dead Kennedys could have made to cover version of the most sold reggae 7" in Norway; "Svake menneske" (Weak people. About people who drink, smoke etc and how dumb they are. Norways first straight edge release, probably).
TFJ was into the game of punk to do what they wanted to do, when they wanted to do it. They got a lot of fans localy, but also some critics. Their band name means the same in Norwegian and English and was off course talk off the town for some religious fanatics.
Any how the band splitt when the fun became more serious than they wanted it to be, just after they had finished their debut EP (where they recorded several other tracks also, later released on a compilaton. For more info look at the discography). It should take 11 years before Requiem Production released it as a 7" EP in ten copys. Extra thick vinyl and a big booklet with everything you possible could want to know about the band + a badge made in ten copys as well. All in a plastic bag. Needles to say this is one off the rarest Norwegian punk releases ever.
