RIISTETYT - Valtion Vankina 1982

I'm busy ripping records tonight and I'm working on some Hardcore stuff from Finland and I wanna post of course another classic album and I'll recommend this right now: Riistetyt - originally called Cadgers - was formed 1981 being one of the very first hardcore punk bands coming from Finland. The first Cadgers line-up did only one split 7'' with Kaaos, both bands being pioneers of hardcore in Tampere. Soon the band name was changed to Riistetyt and the next release was "Laki Ja Järjestys" EP, also released by P.Tuotanto 1982. It followed the debut album Valtion Vankina (As A Prisoners Of State) and the Skitsofrenia 12" on Propaganda Records. Prisoners Of State & the next release "Raiskattu Tulevaisuus" (Raped Future) were also pressed in Germany by not-so-reputable Rock-O-Rama Records (the band had nothing to do with that as it was a deal between Propaganda Records and Jock-O-Rama). Years 1981-1983 the band did a lot of shows around Finland and ended up on US tour 1984, at that time the line-up and the style had faced a radical change (they also had a rock band Pyhät Nuket "Holy Dolls" those days). After the US tour the band had no other solution than have a break since 1985. 1999 there was a funeral of a classic squatted house "Lepakko" in Helsinki and Riistetyt shared the stage with many other old bands from 80's like Kaaos, Terveet Kädet, Appendix etc. After that they recorded a new 7Inch with new line-up but that didn't last long and after more line-up changes there was a team that managed to play together around five years releasing more records and toured in Europe, Brazil & USA, this ensemble played 2008-2010. In the end of 2010 Jukkeli quit playing drums and Perttu re-joined drumming and the nightmare continues! The latest record "Korppien Paraati" was released 2013 on vinyl and CD.
