  • Two founding members of Swedens Raped Teenagers are now together again in a new band called Pusrad. The name paying homeage to one of the songs on RTs first 14 track 7” EP. While the music may be reministic of RT, this is not a new RT or a continuation of that band. It’s a brand new start. While Hardcore might be what you hear they try not to rehash the past or falling into the retro trap so many bands of today do. Seven songs in two minutes is what you get on Pusrads debut 7” E.P. Short, blistering with hooks and speed. Give it a spin.




    Charlie M. sez:"Thus is ridiculously great! Listening to this makes me laugh out loud and gives me goosepimples the way I haven’t had since the mid 80s……and an erection too – bonus! If Koro had been told in ’84 to go away and write some progcore vignettes this is what they might have striven to have come up with."



    This is really, really good stuff. so stripped down and yet so maximal. funky and joyful without ever being cheesy...while i'm not totally hateful against today's diy hardcore (only against 92%, haha!) this is exactly what's missing: serious, well played music with charme and ideas and a bit tongue in cheek."

    Dierk of 80s Austrian HC band Extrem.



    Perfection. Sort, sharp, to the point. Clever, full of energy, sounding like the best and yet like no one else. I’m sorry, but there’s nothing more that I could say. This yellow piece of plastic has so much energy, it makes me breathless. Thus the concept of “Smart Trams” is perfect: Short songs – and only 7 of them. This way, it never gets boring. Well, it wouldn’t get boring if it were a double album. But don’t tell them.
    PUSRAD is from Sweden and consists of Peter and Packe, formerly of Raped Teenagers.

Review from MRR May 2012:
"Pusrad-"Smartramz" EP
This is fantastic! A blur of stop-start-stop-quirk-start hardcore by two former members of Sweden's RAPED TEENAGERS, these seven 35-second or less
blast keep melody as an undercurrent. Thi
s style takes an older perspective of the earliest days of hardcore where the speed was the goal, yet complete musical deconstruction into grind, crossover or powe
r violence had not occurred. Whit that said, these tracks are lightning fast attack of really sharpened hardcore ranging somewhere between KORO and HUVUDTVÄTT. Yet given the band's pedigree, nothing is straight forward. Taking that "Silver Age" of Swedish hardcore with post-VICTIM'S FAMILY / NO MEANS NO weird turns and compressing it into micro-blasts, with less segmentation than RAPED TEENAGERS in the parts ("After the hardcore part, then this is the melodic part"). The balance here between the incredibly simple and the increasingly complex is pretty perfect - harkening back to early, fresh Really Fast, Vol 1, "we're making this up as we go" joyous trial and error as much as the triumphs of late '80s experimentation while capturing an unpredictable freshness. Well served by a clean, dry, modern recording and untapped by a set genre, this is one of the best records I've heard from Sweden in a long time. A++++ (KS) (Just 4 Fun)"
