When I go to the supermarket here in Sweden I can buy food with fair trade marking or various organic or even environment friendly marking. If I trust the source it’s good, I know what I get. As for hardcore there is at least one labeling system in place. You get what you expect buying a tape or record with a band that is called DIS-something. It is going to be some kind of Discharge influenced band. Discard is claimed to start the Swedish DIS-band. BTW – there are several bands actually called Dis-band. Discard was formed in mid 80 with members from Mob 47 (Åke and Chrille) and Per Lundström from Agoni. The band made a demo in 1985 called Four minutes past midnight which is on my want list and had two songs on Really Fast Vol 3 (1986). Talking about the first band starting with DIS, Kenneth “Dåren” Wiklund had a band called Distrust that made a tape in 1983 and a split tape with Asocial in 1984. The later on a label also on a label called DIS Tapes (which also put out the Svart Parad tapes). Disaccord made a tape in 1985 called Don’t Ask Me Why. However – Discard was the first band to cut vinyl

And no – Disarm is not considered part of the this DIS-names.

This record was pressed in 1,000 copies of which 40 were on green splatter vinyl. This is green vinyl copy #29
