It was the beginning of August 2011, Steve [Slingeneyer ndr, SLWX+OneManParty] and I started to speak about Hard Core music, remembering tapes, 7” and many other DIY and demo tracks of our youth. After several months this kind of trip, becomes a video mixtape for Radio Soulwax. We can't pretend to have been huge hardcore punk fans at the time, but have grown to love it now, with help from some friends but most of all from Steve. Using our records and his tapes (of local hardcore radio shows from northern France), we tried to give you our take on 80s hardcore. Some people might feel it's not very respectful, but listen, those guys take themselves way too seriously and by cutting it up the way we did, we feel we have kept to the original spirit and energy of the music. This show contains some of the best sleeves yet on RSWX.
