Negative Insight #3 w/ Shitlickers 7" official repress

Updated December 13, 2016 (scroll to bottom).

NEGATIVE INSIGHT #3
"GBG HARDCORE"
w/ SHITLICKERS 7"

GBG Hardcore, the third installment of Negative Insight magazine, is now in the works. This issue will feature interviews with the Shitlickers (Lasse), Anti-Cimex, Disarm, and Absurd, a comprehensive tour diary of the Anti-Cimex/Agoni 1986 Chainsaw U.K. Tour, a photo feature of long time GBG photographer Sebastian Todor, and additional content pertaining to the 1981-1986 Gothenburg, Sweden hardcore scene. It will also include previously unpublished photos as well as a large four panel fold out poster. The entire issue will be laid out in the 1980s aesthetic, using the same body font as early issues of MRR and Metal Forces and will be professionally printed on full sized gloss paper.

The issue comes packaged with a fully authorized official repress of the Shitlickers "GBG 1982" 7", made using the exact same plates as the original 1982 pressing. We have taken great care to maintain the integrity of the original release and ensure that this repress will sound every bit as loud, powerful, and violent as the initial pressing.

The release date is not yet set, and there will be no preorders. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

U.K. distribution will be handled by Inflammable Material and La Vida Es Un Mus Discos for both mail orders and wholesale orders to other U.K. distros.

Original A+B mother plates used in both the self released and the Malign Massacre pressings from 1982.

Note the beige Malign Massacre pressing label pasted over the original pink sticker pressing info. If you look closely, you can see the original writing of the first pressing through the paper.

August 15, 2016 update: Records have been pressed and are back from the plant. Photos of the 7" and labels are below.



Available at the same time as Negative Insight #3 will be a reprint of Negative Insight #1.

Debut issue exploring the incestuous and overlapping histories of The Varukers and Sacrilege, it features interviews with both plus Disaster as well as previously unpublished photos, a Concrete Sox photo feature, highlights of some under appreciated UKHC records, politics, and Cold War propaganda. The issue comes professionally printed and is full sized, black and white and cut 'n paste with typewriter text.

The 7" included compiles three overlooked Varukers songs recorded in 1984 by what would become three-fourths of the Sacrilege line up on the "Behind The Realms Of Madness" LP. Originally appearing on the hard to find "We Don't Need Nuclear Force" LP+7" compilation on Mülleimer Records, these studio tracks have a raw and primitive metallic sound to them that continued to push what had been laid down previously on the "Led To The Slaughter" 7" and "Another Religion Another War" 12" while showing hints of the early Sacrilege sound and what was to come.


December 10, 2016 update: Varukers "Blood Money" 7" records have arrived. A couple photos of the A side label is posted below.
