ISTUKAS OVER DISNEYLAND / LA THÉORIE DU BOXON Split-LP
LA THÉORIE DU BOXON are a political-punk boy/girl duo with a drum-machine; reminding me of early French institution LUDWIG VON 88 in instrumentation, but sounding raging fast hardcore-punk instead of crazed clowns on meth. ISTUKAS are an institution in the Filipino scene; totally important movers and shakers, active in all areas especially in and around Pampanga. Their sound has been veering off into the faster hardcore-punk area after starting out as a melodic street-punk band. Not sure how they sound like here since I still haven’t got a copy. Anyway, a great pairing with seven songs by LTDB and five by ISTUKAS.
This is put out by a collective of many labels; Rusty Knife Records, FFC Production, Has Been Mental, Trauma Social, MALOKA, General Strike, Love From Hate, Alternatif Sound, La Société Pue Prod, Contre Choc, Alleiner Threat Reckordt and Infiltrate The System Records.
BTW; the artwork for ISTUKAS part of the cover was done by our good mate, Bam Sickos (http://matidirajam.blogspot.com)
If you need a copy, there are a lot of distros in Europe carrying this, while if you’re in Southeast Asia, best to contact Love From Hate, which is run by Francis of ISTUKAS: firstname.lastname@example.org
