VORKRIEGSJUGEND - Wir sind die Ratten 1982-85

Destiny-110  (Vinyl on Weird System)

One of Germany`s most important and influential HC-Punk bands ever - this release contains all their recordings from 1982 until 1985, when the band broke up after just only 3 years of existence - 3 years with an enormous impact on the german punk-scene. Being strongly committed to the political squatters-sovement of West-Berlin, their unique, raw and powerful "Armageddon-Hardcore" gained big respect and following in the Berlin scene, soon all over Germany , then all over the world: USA (MRR & Flipside), Western Europe, Canada, Japan and even Brasil. There are hundreds of groups worldwide who claim VKJ being one of their greatest influences, dozens of cover-versions have been released.
This official re-release of their classic EP and album is the only record, which has been authorized by the original members, it also contains personal liner notes written by good friends and early fans.
