1980's Hardcore/Punk

I was too young (or maybe too ignorant) to listen to any of these bands when they originally came out, but I had the luck of knowing a guy who needed money when he was in his recreational junkie phase and who sold me this 7" EPs cheaply. I got hooked on them (Punk, Not Junk!!) cos the bands were fast, angry and exciting.
Raped Teenagers are from Sweden, this is their first 7" EP. I couldn't understand a word of what they were singing (or better said - screaming) about, but they kicked ass. I later bought their "I Kräftans Klor" album and it was a bit different (more melodic maybe) than the first 7" but still definitely a Raped Teenagers record. I have to admit that I don't understand why this band isn't more popular, I rarely see their stuff mentioned when people write about Swedish hardcore/punk bands. I think it's not fair so check them out, you won't be sorry!!!
Scraps are from a town of Lille, France, and are also one of my favourite bands. You can guess what their views are by looking at the song titles like "Le Pen Fuck You" or "Make Noise, Not Music". Unfortunately I don't understand much French so I don't know a lot about this band except from what I was able to decipher from their 7" records sleeves.
Senseless Death is a 7" compilation of U.S. hardcore bands released by Nuclear Blast Records from Germany. My favourite band is Impulse Manslaughter (also very good songs by Psycho and AMQA). Impulse Manslaughter are my ultimate American HC band. I think they're from Chicago, but don't trust me a 100% on this information. I also have their "He Who Laughs Last... Laughs Alone" LP, but unfortunately it has been ruined by too much scratches and so making it impossible to rip from (I bought it second hand, and listened to it quite a lot, and then recklessly borrowed it to some idiotic people - NEVER BORROW YOUR VINYL!! - people are careless pigs!). If anyone has a link to anywhere where I could get that LP please let me know!!!
All releases in this post are vinyl rips, so they're not perfect...
