Heimat-los - Schlag! 7"

Heimat-los is a quite unique hardcore punk band from Paris / France. Formed in '83, they can be considered as the first hardcore punk band in France. Influenced by bands like; Dead Kennedys, Discharge, Razzia, Siege, Kaaos, Negazione, etc. The lyrics are mostly about wars (especially the nazi era and the apartheid) and the hardcore punk scene of the time. And they sing in English, Finnish, German, Spanish, Swedish, Russian and French. The reason behind that is, the phonetic qualities of the languages, the song structures (the lyrical themes) and the band's interest in foreign scenes. Heimat-los (stateless person in german) stands for that internationalist spirit.
