Avskum is a Swedish D-beat punk band from Kristinehamn, Sweden. Playing classic Swedish hardcore influenced by Discharge, Avskum started in the early 1980s, only to temporarily disband until the mid-1990s where they returned more productive than ever. All original members except the original guitarist perform in the current line-up. They continue to sporadically perform within Europe and in 2004 did a small two-week tour in the United States. Avskum's lyrics generally deal with issues such as nuclear war and capitalism.
This CD compiles 36 tracks from this Swedish hardcore band spanning 1982-1987. The demos, 7", comp tracks, and their unreleased Mortarhate material all on one disc. Classic political hardcore punk from the early days. Booklet with lyrics, photos, and artwork culled from the early years of Avskum.
