"This is a record that might have appeared first in 1987, or in 1993, 2000, 2015. The point is: it doesn't matter. Despite its title," Cold War Nostalgia "is music with no direct historical context. It feeds itself on pure negativity – aggression, darkness, a fear of a future, a loss of control. It's a punk record. The kind of punk that never made it to the museums and opera halls, but instead stayed in the margins, a music as Self-referential as can be, representing only itself. A cultivated, ritualized emotional outburst. Listening to the twelve-and-a-half-minutes of mayhem that is "Cold War Nostalgia", it is very clear that it makes prototypical use of the whole hardcore canon of feedbacks, blasting beats, guitar shreds, distorted screaming; initially, it was intended as a hats-off to japanese and northern-european hardcorepunk in its natal phase, but in its execution, it raises questions of authenticity and authorship . Hammer und Axt, the furious duo behind Hardtack Oak, could be i n their late teens, although they aren't, it's just what's associated with this type of music. "
