The Scoundrels from Zundert were one of the first hardcore bands to emerge from the Netherlands, if not THE first (their debut recordings were released in 1981, the year Lärm formed). Patrick Delabie played guitar and sang for this legendary unit and remastered these ancient tapes himself earlier this month. The zip file includes their 1985 demo tape "UFREETTOEMOEF" (including the artwork), the full 1981 demo (!) and some live songs from 1986 recorded at Hotel de Roskam in Zundert. After this they went on to release 2 awesome albums before splitting up a few years later. This is a must-have for everyone interested in 80's hardcore punk. Download it here:

It looks like Righteous Pigs are reuniting for Maryland Deathfest 2013 which is pretty cool. I dug up their 1987 demotape and found a short live set from February that same year, recorded at the Elks Lodge in Las Vegas. Not exactly overproduced material to say the least, but surely awesome stuff. Zip file also includes some sick flyers. Get it here:
