Welcome to the Norwegian Leather Records website.

Go directly to the Norwegian Leather web store.




Norwegian Leather brings you re-releases of the best Norwegian Hardcore Punk from the 1980s. We are working with our friends to keep this music, which means the world to us, away from bootleggers and businessmen.

Norwegian Leather is part of HeartFirst records and is located in Germany.



The first release 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 second and third releases were 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.



You can order from the HeartFirst mailorder. The LPs cost 10 Euro each. 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 (7 Euros for 2-3 LPs anywhere). You might want to add some other goodies 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 like wholesale rates please get in touch below.

There now is a web shop exclusively for Norwegian Leather Records here, for those who love shopping carts on the web. It has slightly higher prices as the PayPal fee is already included for you international customers.




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, the nice folks at Voltage Records from Czech Republic re-released the "1984" EP, you can check it out and buy it here .
