TARGETS - Schneller, Lauter, Härter EP 1984

Here's one more superb German Punk I like a lot and I regret to sold this awesome EP very many years ago. So if anyone should want to sell this record I'm the right man, of course at a reasonable price, and please leave me a message in the comment section. The band was founded ca. 1984 after the dissolution of the best German political punk band Slime in Hamburg by Eddie (bass), Elf (vox & guitars) and Stéphane from the Buttocks (drums). Targets play aggressive punk rock with fantastic offensive texts and anyone who knows their only full length album can imagine how great must have their live shows. A comparison with Slime's live album is allowed. Hamburg had a very good scene, many cool bands released many classics and the list is endless. Targets released their debut EP on Walterbach's AGR label and their second 'Menschenjagd' in the same year. 1985 they went to Berlin again and recorded their album 'Massenhysterie'. Shortly after, the band broke up. What remains are three brilliant records which should have a place in every well-stocked collection.
