loose times, light times (1999/PRANK)

SMOKE OR FIRE
the speakeasy (2010/FAT WRECK)
MELODIC-PUNK. "the speakeasy" is undoubtedly the band's Pièce de résistance. Every element of "the speakeasy" suggests that SMOKE OR FIRE have finally realized their potential. "the speakeasy" is a complete album in the truest sense, lacking nothing, while offering varied, yet equally enthralling melodies and music on each of the 13 tracks. The album just maintains high energy throughout, while displaying a range of songwriting mastery.

i'm not alright (2010/BARFIGHT/PER KORO)
HARDCORE-PUNK. After a stellar LP and subsequent 7", along with countless shows SNIFFING GLUE are releasing "i'm not alright". It seems that SNIFFING GLUE have gotten popular for their tight and nimble approach to hardcore-punk. "i'm not alright" is another retro record that sounds fresh in the modern day sound scape - authentic, energetic, with lots of anger, and with speed by time - all of which is build on a foundation of solid songwriting, incredible lyrics, and the occasional inclusion of a catchy melody from start to finish. The 9 new tracks (plus one additional cover by a german punk-rock classic) on "i'am not alright" are as good as any '80s Reagan-era hardcore-punk record you've ever heard...so yeah if you want to get some kick-ass snotty tunes without fashion styled shit and tough attitudes...or you already got rid off all those classic bands that they always get compared with (bla bla...CIRCLE JERKS, BLACK FLAG...blabla), get this shit as soon as you possibly can. Maybe a record so angry and powerful that it is bound to create an instant slam-dance party in your house? Well, right you are! CD comes with the 2 songs of their split 7" with PRESS GANG and 8 live tracks in good quality! [#002] Per Koro sublabel

s/t (2011/SEARCH FOR FAME)
HARDCORE-PUNK. SNIFFING GLUE are no strangers to the German, (and european) scene. With a couple outstanding releases under their belt these punks deliver yet again an excellent piece of old-schoolish hardcore-punk! Early US hardcore collides with nowadays popular scandinavian punk-rock. The diverse songwriting that you have come to expect from SNIFFING GLUE is still very much present on this new LP - from the pissed hardcore blasts to the more mid-tempo, catchy hook laden fist pumpers, and everything in between - this LP has it all. Needless to say, this rager destroys everything in its path.
suburban suicide/suburban violence (2010/SEARCH FOR FAME)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Already back in press! Here is the 2nd vinyl release from SNIFFING GLUE. Yet again you'll get 4 tracks of completely insane hardcore-punk in the best '80s reagan-era style. A strong emphasis on catchy riffs combined with plentiful tempo changes and gang vocals. It's a rager and it's dirty, snotty as ape shit. Put down that goofy shit and hear something that is crucial, something that will lead you away from the path of shitty bands, again..!
we are sniffing glue fuck you (2008/BARFIGHT/PER KORO)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Fucking crucial, why the hell don't you own this already? SNIFFING GLUE is one of the best upcoming bands out of germany (with members from THE ITALIAN STALLION and KRAUTBOMBER) - hands down! You'll get 15 tracks of completely insane hardcore-punk in the best '80s reagan-era style. The sound is somewhere between those hyped stateside bands (GOVERNMENT WARNING, DIRECT CONTROL etc.), with nods to classic bands of yesterday like CIRCLE JERKS and "My war & damaged" era BLACK FLAG. Incredible lyrics belted out over furious yet catchy songs really put this over the top. Cool trebly guitar attack with some fist-pumping tempos to satisfy all hardcore-heads. Nicely packed in an awesome cover and a huge poster-inlay! Well if you don't have this album get it! [#001] Per Koro sublabel
