Tsjernobilly boogie (Chernobilly boogie)

S.O.T-.002/H.P.006 - Classic Norwegian Compilation LP (1987), (S.O.T.-002B) Cassette (1994) and CD-R (2001).

The  release  was to be a co-operation between the labels; Snack Ohm Tapes  (from Bergen) , Humbug Productions  (from Voss), and the HC bands involved. The idea was inspirered from similar  projects  we  heard of existed  during 1985.  For  back then, to release an LP alone, was economic impossible. So that  the reason.

And second we  wanted bands all over the country to be  involved. And so  it was.

The title "Tsjernobilly Boogie", and the album cover refers to the horrible nuclear disaster in  Chernobyl, Ukraine in 1986. The release is a reaction to this incident.; a combination of shock  and black humor seems to be the proscribed remedy. 

Several of the featured bands, i.e. Kafka Prosess, Barn av Regnbuen and Angor Wat, have attained international attention in the aftermath.

The release contains 9 HC bands and 20 great songs. The bands were mainly located in two different cities; Trondheim (and suburbs) and Oslo. Kafka Prosess, Barn Av Regnbuen and Brent Jord  from, the rest from Trondheim; Angor Wat, TMB, Josva, Dead Swingers and Det Glade Vanvidd. One band from Bergen is also included; Overlagt Drap.

In january 1986 my friend; Håvard in the punk label Humbug Productions started the forthcoming release of Tsjernobilly boogie LP, by sending out an invitation letters, all over the country to the many interesting punk bands that we knew about.  The letter is saying something like:"It's a      shame that is never been released a HC punk compilation in Norway yet. Bands  that never been heard by others than their friends. But don't  despair. We want to change that." So it happened.

I got a copy of the record in the mail in march  1987, and later on I got my 222 copies of the record. The total amount made were 1000 copies, divided between the bands and the labels.  The record; Tsjernobilly Boggie never got a lot of interest in the media in 1987, and the record  were sold out  within 5 years.

Later one, in 1994 I released Tsjernobilly Boogie as a cassette in 35 copies. It all happened just as I did a another tapes project . And at the same time i started to mail my friend; Håvard (because he  was playing in the punk  band; Dead Gerhardsens), and he made some lay-out on Tsjernobilly Boogie for  cassette.

And at  the same time I saw the insane high  prices on the vinyl  release of Tsjernobilly Boogie on the internet.  And people start  asking me  questions ;  Can't you sell me a copy? Why don't you release it again?  That's why I did  a small copy on cassette.  But maybe  Tsjernobilly Boogie LP will be released again.

The Cassette of Tsjernobilly Boogie released in 1994 in 35 copies.
