Negative Insight #3 out now

The new issue of Negative Insight (Issue #3) with an official repress of the Skitslickers "GBG 1982" 7" is now available as well as a reprint of Issue #1 with a Varukers 7" containing three rare cuts from '84. The complete info is contained below.

For ordering, please go to: 

For distro stuff, I've worked hard over the past few years to try to track down old releases that are either original back stock or old releases that have been kept in print by the original label, and I think there's some ILL shit here. Some of the highlights include original stock copies of Metal Forces magazine and Raising Hell zine and copies of tapes on Musical Tragedies by Conflict, Chaos UK, and The Subhumans. There's also other stuff as well including a new issue of Ripping Thrash containing only reprinted material from 1986-1990 that is only available in the US for sale through Social Napalm. The Disclose tapes are also highly recommended.

Anyway, hope people will take an interest. Thanks a lot for your time,

WHOLESALE: I do not have copies of Negative Insight #3 w/ the Skitslickers 7" currently available for wholesale. Issues #1 and #2 are available with a minimum of 5 total to get the wholesale rate. Please email direct at for more info.

I do have copies of The Apostles - "The Acts Of The Apostles In The Theatre Of Fear" LP (Acid Stings) available for wholesale for $9.00 each + postage.


Negative Insight #1 w/ Varukers "Blood Money" 7" EP
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histories of The Varukers and Sacrilege, it features interviews with both plus Disaster as well as previously unpublished photos, a Concrete Sox photo feature, highlights of some under appreciated UKHC records, politics, and Cold War propaganda.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.

Negative Insight #2 w/ Chaos U.K. "Studio Outtakes 1981-1983" 7" EP
Here is the second issue of Negative Insight, entitled the "Bristol Breakout" issue. With a focus on the deafening noise of the Bristol punk scene in the 1980s, it contains comprehensive interviews with Chaos UK, Disorder, and Riot City Records founder Simon Edwards. The issue features many previously unpublished photos from the personal archives of band members and others involved in the scene, a large four panel fold out poster, articles, and more. It comes accompanied by a Chaos UK 7" containing two rare studio tracks recorded in 1981 and 1983 and packaged in a Riot City inspired sleeve. This issue is printed as a professional magazine on coated paper instead of the previous zine style, but with all layouts done in the traditional cut 'n paste format with typewriter text. This should appeal to fans of British hardcore, 1980s layouts, and those who enjoy reading about drug abuse and living the chaos.

Negative Insight #3 w/ Skitslickers "GBG 1982" 7" EP
Third installment of Negative Insight for the dedicated follower of fashion. Entitled GBG Hardcore, this 56 page issue features interviews with the Shitlickers, Anti-Cimex, Disarm, and Absurd, a photo feature of long time GBG photographer Sebastian Todor, a comprehensive diary of the Anti-Cimex/Agoni 1986 Chainsaw Tour, and additional content pertaining to the 1981-1986 Gothenburg, Sweden hardcore scene. It includes previously unpublished photos as well as a large fold out Shitlickers poster. The entire issue is laid out in the 1980s aesthetic, using the same body font as early issues of MRR and Metal Forces and is professionally printed as a full sized magazine.
The issue comes packaged with a fully authorized official repress of the Shitlickers "GBG 1982" 7", pressed 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 sounds every bit as loud, powerful, and violent as the initial run.
The direct mail order version comes packed with a mess of flyer ads to sift through for those longing for the mail order experience of old and a copy of Alti Intensidaz #8 covering the Shitlickers influence in Spain.
