LOKUM 12" HS19 out 17/4 2010
Alright, yes I'm a slow motherfucker sometimes but believe it or not, the LOKUM 12" is out now!

For those of you not in the know, LOKUM was one of the best kept secrets of the K-TOWN hardcore punk scene in the beginning of this millenium. This 12" is the rest of the session where the two songs from the GORILLA ANGREB split 7" are taken from.

I will have a little releaseparty in my recordshop on this coming saturday (17th of april @ REPO MAN RECORDS, Fensmarkgade 36, 2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark) and will send out mailorders next week. I'll do 100 of these with a special recordrelease/mailorder cover. If you're in Copenhagen this weekend, drop by.

When I know price and details regarding the LOKUM release I will post it here.

Also in the good news department :

Masters for DE HØJE HÆLE LP and AMDI PETERSENS ARMÉ LP are finally ready. Will send these to the pressingplant soon and have these out by mid-june! Yeah. Also the AMDI PETERSENS ARMÉ/YOUNG WASTENERS DVD will be out around that time.

I'm proud to announce that I'll be re-releasing the mighty CITY X collecting their singles and some unreleased stuff on LP. This is still in the works but will happen over the summer I hope.

DE HØJE HÆLE/ A.P.A./COLA FREAKS
Been working forever on these two projects and due to various reasons it's been taking way longer than expected. However, both DE HØJE HÆLE LP and AMDI PETERSENS ARMÉ LP are almost ready now and will be sent to the pressingplant really soon. I expect to have them out in April. Stay tuned. COLA FREAKS is currently recording the last tracks for their upcoming LP too. Will post more concerning this release when I know more.

NEW RELEASES POSTPONED
Alright, deadlines suck. Especially when you can't reach them. My new releases are not out yet. Problems with the master for APA LP and DHH took longer than expected to mix. So none of these will be out until late may or early june. When I have more info on when these babies will be in, I'll post it here.
In the meantime I still have DE HØJE HÆLE 7"s (released through my record-shop imprint; REPO MAN RECORDS) left for wholesale orders. Pick it up! It's awesome.

UPDATE JANUARY 2009
Okay folks it's been a while without updates, so here's what's cooking at the HJERNESPIND headquarter these days.

Out 3rd of April 2009:

HS016 LEATHERVEIN LP

Tough as nails K-town hardcore mixed with the best elements of classic rock & NWOBH bands, Judas Priest and AC/DC executed tight as fuck and with LOADS of guitarleads and solos that will make your jaws drop. Absolute greatness from these K-town youngsters.

HS17 AMDI PETERSEN'S ARMÉ LP

Collection of both e.p.'s originally released on KICK N' PUNCH RECORDS, unreleased tracks and compilation tracks from their existence from 1998-2002. Been working forever on this project, so it feels good to finally announce that this album will finally be available in April.

HS18 HUL : DEN DANSKE UNGDOM LP

Re-issue of great album released by Copenhagen kiddie punks HUL in the year of 2001. This band had future members of NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, YOUNG WASTENERS and AMDI PETERSENS ARMÉ in the line-up so you know it's good. Produced by PETER PETER from legendary first Danish punkband SODS. People paying attention to the current Danish scene need to check this record out!

HS19 DE HØJE HÆLE LP

Finally the debut for these Copenhagen punk rockers. Here's what MRR said : "Part DEVO, part ´70s powerpop, part ´60s garage, part dane-punk. Soooooooo Catchy! Top ten shit right here" Yes, right on! One of the best new bands in Copenhagen.

There will be a release-party somewhere in Copenhagen for all 3 of these releases. I will announce details when I know them. And yes, there will be release party limited editions for all these records available for these shows and available for direct mailorders only!

CD-versions will be available when I can afford it.

Later in 2009 on HJERNESPIND RECORDS :

COLA FREAKS LP/CD
LOKUM 7"
...and who knows maybe the SNIPERS and ASBEST discographies as well. We'll see!

ATT: DISTROS
Note to European d.i.y. type distros : If you haven't got a VAT I.D. I need to add the Danish VAT to the total price of the records, since we became a registred business with the REPO MAN Recordstore and the label HJERNESPIND.

Please consider BEFORE placing an order if you still want to go ahead with the order. Postage and paypal fees are a bitch too, but that should be possible to figure out before actually ordering! Having said this, postage rates in Denmark are expensive but around the same rates as other countries in Europe to give you an idea. I can now ship to Germany, Holland, Belgium and Sweden with GLS which saves quite some money on bigger boxes!!

I'm happy to announce that this album will finally see the light of day soon. After re-recording the whole album the band and everyone involved are finally satisfied and the end-result is incredible.

Tough as nails K-town hardcore mixed with the best elements of classic rock & NWOBH bands, Judas Priest and AC/DC executed tight as fuck and with LOADS of guitarleads and solos that will make your jaws drop. Absolute greatness from these K-town youngsters. Expect this to be out around may or june. And yes, there will be a CD version too.

And speaking of release schedules, I'm shooting to have the HJERTESTOP LP/CD out at the same time. Again, if you thought K-town hardcore scene was dead, here's the proof again that it's alive and kicking. HJERTESTOP continues to amaze me. This is as good as their already classic 7"!!

MASSHYSTERI, W.O.D. & COLA FREAKS
