Hack Hack - Despite Amputations MLP

I'll do Fritz Die Spinne a favour. Here's the mini album of Hack Hack. Another one of those obscure bands on Shout Records. NG, drummer of Headhunters also played on this record. Personally I like 'Hymn For The Discontented' most.
As far as I know there were only 3 mini albums released on Shout. This is the second one. The first one is the Wicked Kitchen Staff record and third one the Vonbrigdi (Iceland) 'Kakofonia' MLP. Never heard the latter one.
Anyone has more info on Hack Hack?

Despite Amputations MLP (Shout Records-MX 002-1983)
1. Monster Ash-Tray Man
2. Chambermaid
3. Door Slam
4. Ride A Horse
5. Run In To Me
6. Hymn For The Discontented

thank you for this.

Shout records released also the great mini-album of Shoc Corridor - Experiments in Incest which includes 6 tracks.

And Vonbrigdi released a record with new and re-worked tracks in 2004 called Edli Annarra very recommended.

Thanks for the comment Lunaire. Are you planning to post some obscure music on your blog? Looking forward to it.
I think there's a Shoc Corridor discography CD.

Great blog!

I found this album from finnish secondhand store. I have never heard it before. It is sounds very melancholy and depressive but good!
