Welcome to the Norwegian Leather Records website.



Norwegian Leather brings you re-releases of some of the best Norwegian Hardcore Punk bands from the 80s. We are working with our friends to keep this music, which means the world to us, away from bootleggers and businessmen.

Norwegian Leather Records is a part of HeartFirst Records and is located in Germany.



The first release on the label was the re-release of the SO MUCH HATE - "How We Feel" LP which originally came out on X-PORT PLATER from Oslo in 1987. The record looks like the original but the cover is black/white as the original artwork was coloured afterwards. The lyric sheet is exactly like the original. The first 1000 copies of the repress come with an 8-page-fanzine with old interviews and liner notes by long time friends of the band. If you mailorder this record directly from the label, you will still get the fanzine.

The second and third releases on Norwegian Leather are two LPs by BANNLYST. The "Diskografi" has their songs from the split tape with ANGOR WAT, their 7" songs, "Terrorstyre" and "Louie Louie". A total of 24 songs in 44 minutes with some of the best 1980s hardcore punk that ever came out of Europe. There also is a "Live At Blitz" LP with a great soundboard live recorded from 1992.



The LPs cost 8 Euro. Postage rates here in Germany have just gone down fortunately, so for one LP the postage is 4 Euros to anywhere in the world by airmail letter post. You might want to add some other junk from the HeartFirst mailorder to your order to make the postage more efficient. Check it out here. You can pay by paypal (5% fee). For more info please get in touch below.



Another planned release is a SVART FRAMTID record but the format is still undecided. Quite likely it will be a LP with their EP, their NRK songs and some unreleased live stuff.  In the meantime, Voltage Records from Czech Republic re-released the "1984" EP, you can check it out and buy it here .
