An Official Response To Releasing Controversial Music

PATAC Records is a rock'n'roll label with true punk values. These days, punk rock seems to become more closed minded than ever before, and that is totally fucking dumb. My label plans on releasing punk'n'roll, noise, black metal, grind, hell even straightedge hardcore.
I've already received bullshit for agreeing to release an album by my friend Seth Putnam's band 'ANAL CUNT.' Take a fucking joke, enjoy the music, you may not understand or enjoy the humor of the lyrical content, and that is fine with me. I'm going to continue releasing crust'n'roll, but I am no way ashamed to support ANAL CUNT.
I love everything from CRASS and AMEBIX to Howlin' Wolf and Billie Holiday. If you're that quick to judge me and write me off as an asshole, that's fine, I'd rather not associate with a closed minded prick like you. Just ask yourself, when did punk rock become a witch hunt, when did we begin to alienate each other, instead of helping to promote and create a better scene.
Go post anonymously on a message board and talk shit. Fuck your cliques.

When did punk rock stop being fun for you?

cheers and beers,

-Dan PATAC

From DECIBEL MAGAZINE

RESISTANT CULTURE All One Struggle CD (Shaman/Seventh Generation Records)

Call me a hater, but being one who generally avoids scabies and bedbugs, I tend to avoid the crusty-punk panhandling masses. I prefer Shih Tzus and expensive microbrews over pitbulls and Sparks, thank you very much. After all, one doesn’t have to get in their van (the one that’s broke down behind your favorite taqueria where they just ate your leftover bits of burrito out of the dumpster) to enjoy the power of the D-beat!

Totally kidding! Say what you will about crust culture’s hygiene practices; their DIY, anarcho-punk political stances and long history of extreme punk metal hybrids are to be admired. And longtime crew Resistant Culture are one of the smarter and more respected of the pack: grindcore-flavored punk rock with constant pit-circling streams of D-beat goodness, but mixed with unexpected moments that pack in “tribal” bits such as Native American flute, percussion and chanting.

The L.A.-based band is led by Anthony Rezhawk, who may be best known for his killer vocal work on Terrorizer’s comeback album, Darker Days Ahead. The group also featured guitarist Jesse Pintado (the sadly recently deceased ex-member of Napalm Death) in a part-time capacity. Both these albums are smart and streamlined grind, featuring short and to-the-point blasts (meaning usually under three minutes, closer to two) of government-hating fury. Welcome to Reality, the faster and more ballistic of the two, is a re-release that features Pintado on axe (plus a killer Discharge cover of “Hear Nothing, Say Nothing”); All One Struggle, their newest, is equally as killing, just more varied in tempos. Potent high-grade crust explosives—pull the pin and run!


From Terrorizer Magazine

RESISTANT CULTURE All One Struggle CD (Shaman/Seventh Generation Records)

Now tragically without ex-Nalpalm Death/Terrorizer man Jesse Pintado, the reservation's most fearsome tribal crustgrind collective soldier on regardless under the leadership of the "Darker Days Ahead" Terrorizer vocalist Anthony Rezhawk in a war on the great callous, concrete devourer that's gobbling up liberties and livelihood, and shitting out pollutants and poverty.

The songwriting's far tighter than its predecessor, which seemed to stop far more often than necessary to have lovely, haunting flute moments as if it were taking in a picnic spot on a long motorway journey. Instead the chants, hooting owls(!) and traditional Native American instruments are absorbed into some orthodox Bolt Thrower-brand grinding death. The lyrics, which take big spoonfuls of tribal spirituality and indignant anarchopunk only add to the fearsome, atmospheric and apocalyptic end result; the soundtrack to the world you've just destroyed.

EXECUTIONER - HELLBOUND EP out now!!! 1982 San Jose Hardcore Punk




It's not often that one stumbles across an unknown, undiscovered gem from the golden age of California hardcore, but that's the case with this debut release from a band that went their separate ways over 25 years ago. Formed in San Jose in 1982, Executioner's music was hard, fast, tight and loud. It contained "taboo" extended guitar solos and stop-on-a-dime tempo changes. They sounded like nobody else. A mix of hardcore West Coast punk rock, speed metal (before there WAS such a thing) and the larynx-shredding assault of singer Dave Burk's vocal missives, their music commanded attention. And they got it. A bootleg cassette of their song "Fix Me/Hellbound" became the number one requested cut on the legendary underground station KFJC for the entire year 1983. It was the number two most requested song on San Francisco's mainstream station KQAK (The Quake) the following year. All with absolutely no promotion, just word of mouth.
But by that time they had called it quits, victims of their own teenage attention spans, the then-current ethos of slackerdom, and perhaps a few too many encounters with illicit substances. Their recordings sat unreleased for over two and a half decades, kept alive only by the 4th and 5th generation cassette dubs that kept on making the rounds in the following years as their legend grew. Until now...
Patac Records is proud to release Executioner's long awaited debut "Hellbound."
Members of Executioner went on to work with such diverse artists as Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Guns n' Roses, 22 Jacks, Black Francis (Pixies), Throbbing Gristle, The Offs, Pete Yorn, and many others. Catch them here in their formative years, and prepare to be blown away.

Cover art by
Winston Smith (DEAD KENNEDYS, GREEN DAY, LARD, BEN HARPER) Later this year, PATAC will also be releasing their lost 1983 album, as well as a brand new single!

REVIEWS!

Executioner was a band for the first generation of San Jose, CA hardcore back in the very early 1980s. They were very short-lived but from everything I’ve read, they made quite an impact at the time, especially for a band who didn’t put out any records. They had recorded a full album’s worth of material but for some reason none of it was ever released aside from people who had a tape of it and passed it around the world countless times. Patac Records struck gold with finding out that the material had survived and after 28 years Executioner finally has a record out.

The music of Executioner is classic early hardcore. The songs are hard, fast, heavy and short. Hundreds of bands copied this style in the years to come but this band was at the first part of the curve. There’s a small bit of British punk influence in the sound and the very tiniest hint of metal in the guitars that only just makes the sound heavier, and isn’t remotely reminiscent of the metal that would infect hardcore three years later. The vocals are yelled and the singer has a great harsh, throat full of gravel vocal sound that was perfect for this style of hardcore. Had this record come out in this form 28 years ago I could guarantee you it would have been pretty influential and people would be paying big money for them on eBay these days along with their early Dischord and Touch and Go singles.

When you listen to this record and put it in the context of when it was recorded, it is a prime piece of hardcore that is a must have for any fan of the genre. As an old punk rocker who grew up on this stuff, I can tell you had this come out when I was a teenager it would have been one of the many soundtracks of my skateboarding and hardcore youth.

The record was pressed on red vinyl and contains four songs. It is housed in a full color fold-over sleeve that is also printed on the inside in two colors with the lyrics and photos. It also contains an old show flyer that has liner notes and stories about the band printed on the opposite side. It’s really a nice package which makes this punk rock artifact all the more worth owning. This is truly a must for fans of old hardcore and punk historians.

Executioner – Hellbound

A recently unearthed early hardcore artifact that any fan of early punk should be thankful for.
