2015 UKHC

by Jean


During the early 2000s, Belgium and Netherlands were kind like a Mecca for Euro hardcore. Bands like NO TURNING BACK or TRUE COLORS, just to name a few, were at their peak and, althought I guess that spirit still exists in all-time NTB audience considering their latest LP “Never Give Up” (released a few months ago on Take Control Records and Kick Out The Jams) and Gert Jacobs (TC) latest band NOT AFRAID, it seems in 2015, England has turned into the epicentre of European conscious punk music especially if, like your (French) servant, you’re into the whole current “concept” of UK Hardcore.
(NB: I’m not a geography teacher so forgive me if these bands do not actually cover the entire United Kingdom map like former punk bands in 1980s Finland for example).

Abolition 2008-2013

By Tieuma

Damn, since I don’t have a proper internet connection at my place anymore, everytime I can connect and there’s something popping out, I’m losing attention on what I’m actually doing like a puppy.

It happened today, again, with this short footage about London’s Abolition.

Bands with a strong political message are my favorites, and especially when they’re playing this 90’s chug-chug hardcore vibe. And Abolition were doing it perfectly. Even though I only caught them live once during 2012’s London Edge Day, I had the pleasure to spend a little time with Nicholas and Charlie (and Katie, who was or still is living with them.) who gave me two t-shirts of the band, told me about the whatnot of the london scene and damn, gave me a place to crash when I needed it. All in all, it was super quality time, with great people playing great music.

For me they left a mark on the european scene, as much as their pals Unveil, from Switzerland, when it comes to 90’s metallic hardcore and politically fueled hardcore more largely.


Thanks to the people who did and uploaded the video.
