Defacto Oppression

-azone show.

-DFO was based out of Menomonie respectfully. They destroyed as many bacements as eardrums. By the time of thier second release they could stand the test of time and become one of the best bands that has graced so many dizzy minds and sweaty walls.

Chris D- Vocals (most likely still plays D&D)
Mike O - Bass (Weaving The Deathbag, Lost Issues)
Adam K - Drums
Jake W. - Guitar, backup vox


-We're Digging Our Graves... 7", Self Released (now Hungry Ghosts Records) 1999. This gasp of breath was recorded after the band was together for six months. The lyrics are more politically straight forward and the music more rudimentary hardcore but still an excellent recording. This was the third 7" that I picked up and will be one of my top five for a long time.

1. Suburban Sprawl
2. It's Not That Simple
3. Cycles of History
4. Frankenstein
5. Locked Away
6. It's The Drugs Doug

-Screen Symphony Suicide CD, Self Released (Now Hungry Ghosts Records) 2001. There is nothing more than I can say about this album other than FUCK YEAH. Some people will sweep this album under the rug by saying that it borrowed too much from From Ashes Rise; that statement would have been different it they'd actually listened to the album rather than just look at the pretty pictures.

1. Oblivious To Concerns
2. So Far So Good?
3. Walk Away
4. The Faithful
5. To Sleep Without Dreams
6. Waiting Without Dreams
7. The Train

The Droids

- from "Moja Kochana Mamusia Marysia Mania" 7".

-The Droids started around '94 in the fabled Wisconsin city of Manitowoc; focusing on the Polish side of life (The polish being one of the major immigrant influence around the south western side of Wisconsin). They broke up briefly and put out their third EP, after that the cans of kraut must have been too overwhelming for one band to consume alone.

Ted H - Bass
Tom N - Drums


- Jabede Bardzo Dorby 7", Power Ground Records 1995?.

-Boris The Sprinkler / The Droids - Split 7", Power Ground Records 1995?. Recorded at Simple Studios, Green Bay WI. What a way to compliment the area by mixing a rough sounding punk band, with a (now notorious pop-punk) band than putting them on the same piece of wax.

1. Elementarz
2. Notch
3. Spotch E Yedzenya (By the Expoited...Polish Style!)

-Remission '95

-Remission started out in 1995 in Manitowoc playing thrashy political punk. They recorded plenty of music on labels all of the the world; two of those being on Power Ground (also from WI). As of 2008, Remission has come back from the grave with a new line up that seems like it will be a pretty damn good time.
