Evil Conduct

100% working class Oi! music from Holland Many times Evil Conduct was compared with legendary Oi! bands from the early eighties. They were even nicknamed "the Dutch Last Resort". Although the band regards this as a big compliment it is obvious that Evil Conduct has its own identity with its own distinctive sound. Their music may be classified as basic, straight-in-yer-face, sing-along working class Oi! with powerfull vocals.

Necronomicon

1) Necronomicon were formed in 1971 in Aachen, the Western part of Germany near the Belgium and Netherlands border. With an album title (Tips zum Selbtsmord) that means "How to Commit Suicide," Necronomicon's one album, from 1972, featured bleak progressive garage rock with long instrumental passages. With wailing acid guitar solos, dark organ swirls, and angst-ridden singing in German, Necronomicon has created a dark and powerful vision that blends psychedelic and progressive music with a proto-punk garage band sensibility.

They are credited with releasing hip-hop's first single to find a mainstream audience beyond the hip-hop scene with their catchy (and 14-minute long) song "Rapper's Delight."

New Morality

Band bios are usually a bunch of regurgitated bullshit overfilled with descriptive words and adjectives that add up to, well, bullshit. Getting quickly to the point here; NEW MORALITY from The Netherlands was formed late 2004 by a bunch of friends with the same hardcore mindset: pure anarchy. In the past years, they've self released a demo, compilations, an MCD, a split 7" and a recent promo CD, played various shows all over Europe and the band pretty much booked all of those shows by themselves.
