EMILS - Fight Together For… LP + 7”
In the 80s the first German bands began to orient themselves on the Ami-Hardcore. SPERMBIRDS, SKEEZICKS, JINGO DE LUNCH, H.O.A., UNWANTED YOUTH, S.O.S., ... In the mid 80's there were rumors about a new band from Hamburg. Did SLIME possibly fit behind the EMILS? If you read the band name from the back to the front, then these rumors of course get food. And also the spelling of the band writing was very similar to SLIME. But in the end, of course, that was nonsense. The EMILS crossed on their debut album Punk with Hardcore and also with Metal. D.R.I. had just invented the crossover. And the influences from the states were quite big on the local scene. The EMILS quickly became popular. Because they had German texts that were also very critical and direct and did not mince words. They were directed, for example, against the church, neo-Nazis, nuclear power (Chernobyl was just then exploded), conformity and also against the stupidity in their own scene, which was expressed in the song "Dumb Punk". "Fight together for ..." was her first and best LP in 1987. Here you will find the hits "Too Slow", "Church No", "Stupid Punk", "Beautiful Life" and some other good songs. Hardcore hardcore / punk rock fans should beat their hearts out with this first-ever vinyl re-release. But even for those who have "passed" this band and who are into punk, hardcore and / or crossover, it is almost inevitable to have "given" the Emils at least once in their lives. And for you now there is a little explanation why that is. The vinyl release includes a bonus EP with 4 previously unreleased live cover songs, as well as a 12-page booklet with liner notes / pictures from the past. The re-release will come out in a nice inside-out cover design.
