Well if you are into punk then this lot wont be lesser known at all but for those who may think punk rock consists of 'My chemical romance' or 'New found glory' etc you may not have heard these.
I might be wrong but I dont think the majority of members here will be into punk all that much. Still, its worth a little bandwith just incase biggrin.gif

Angelic Upstarts


The Ruts


The exploited - This is a bit more metal so worth a listen if you thought the first two weren't heavy enough


Threats - this kinda reminds me a little of Paul di' Anno type vocals. Cool song, great band.


The Damned - not lesser known but its a cool track!

Never heard any of those bands, Gab. The last band, Colmena? they sounded the closest to what I think of as old school punk, I liked that track the most out of those. its really good smile.gif

The band's name is "El Otro Yo", they are an Argentinean alternative band from the 90's that combined punk, rock, grunge, sonic and many other alternative genres in their albums... the album called Colmena is one of my favorite from them..

check what wiki says:

"El Otro Yo is an Argentine band of alternative rock and originally of Temperley, Buenos Aires, formed at the beginning of the decade of 1990 and influenced mainly by Nirvana, Pixies and Sonic Youth. Led by Cristian Aldana and with more than one decade on the scenes, this band has known to leave in front of independent form with 11 discs published in several parts of the world, plus a DVD with most of its trajectory."


"Discography

Traka Traka (1994, Besotico Records)
Mundo (1995, Besotico Records)
Hijos del Alien (Reedicion) (1996, Besotico Records)
Esencia (1997, Besotico Records)
Esencia Compilado (1998, Besotico Records)
Abrecaminos (1999, Besotico Records)
Contagiándose la Energía del Otro (2000, Besotico Records)
Colmena (2003, platinum album)
Espejismos (2004, Besotico Records)
Pirata (2006, Besotico Records)
Fuera del Tiempo (2007, Besotico Records)"


This is another band from the same Buenos Aires 90's Alternative Scene...

Here are some great german punk bands that will be pretty unknown outside of Germany. And even in Germany, only real punkfans will know them.
ZSK has always been a favourite of mine, they also have a bunch of songs in english, but I chose one of their german songs. Like so manyof their songs, this one is against Fascism.
Terrorgruppe, WIZO and Abstürzende Brieftauben were more funpunk bands, sadly they don't exist anymore...

yeah, agreed.

Suicidal Tendencies - I only have their "lights, camera, revolution' album. I never really thought of them as punk but I have seen them get placed in the genre, sometimes 'skate punk' ( im not really sure what that is tbh! ). The album I have of theirs is truly excellent though, maybe that's why Ive always liked it!

Sum 41 - I couldnt have them in any punk collection of mine biggrin.gif

I must admit to being more of a fan of UK punk, with the occasional exception for the likes of Dead Kennedys, Rancid and a few others.

Really impressed with your record collection there tony smile.gif it's brilliant.

those were pretty good smile.gif the german language lends itself really well to punk, makes it easy to listen to when you cant speak it.

I've only got some of the early Suicidal Tendencies stuff from the early-mid 80s after I saw the film Repo Man.

Sum 41 isn't really one of mine either - got left to me after a party and I don't think it's been played since.

I tend to agree though I also really like the SST type US hardcore. I also got quite a lot of mid/late 70s US punk partly as Peel pushed it quite a bit at the time with the whole Akron thing.

Thanks - I was just lucky enough to have grown up during the era and because I lived in Liverpool saw lots of bands and could buy records in the wonderful Probe Records shop.
