BANNLYST - Demo '83

Dear Norwegian hardcore freaks and Euro-hardcore enthusiasts: today's your lucky day! I bring you a rare demo/rehearsal recording by the classic Norwegian hardcore masters BANNLYST. Complete with in between song nonsense, unreleased songs, absurd covers of SHAM 69 and DISCHARGE, and obligatory "Louie Louie" cover, this is the rarest BANNLYST material I know of. The quality on the first track might scare you into thinking this is a waste of time, but I promise it gets better and you should keep listening. Most of these tracks were not on their split tape with ANGOR WAT or "La Dem Ikke Lure Deg" EP. I really don't know what more to say about this. If you know and love this band and were stoked to get the discography LP from Norwegian Leather a couple years ago, you definitely want to add this to your collection. Thought you'd heard every genius Børre Løvik riff? There're some you haven't heard on this tape. 


  1. Killer. "Louie Louie" spelled backwards is "Eiuol Eiuol" - as in "If you haven't heard this material/demo, "Eiuol" love it." Sorry. Heh Superb post.

  2. Great blog. Thanks for this tape.
