It might not look like much, but this 'office kit' with envelopes, pens, post-it notes and tape will actually help since I lost all the envelopes etc. in the flood. Thanks alot J. Hausel!

Looks like crustmast came early for me this year. A home made DIY pedal + 4x punk/hc/pop 7's. Damn. This awesome package was kindly sent by my old friend F. "Parasiten" Lyxzén. Check out his web for more pedals and recording self-abuse.

Yet another package from the northern parts of Sweden. Sender: C.E.O (aka Fred Lee) of Luftslott Records. Found a bunch of the brand new released Tango Violenzo 7" inside. 40sek + postage and its yours. All profit will go to the benefit of D&R.

More D&R flood updates...

Yesterday was an intense yet important day when we got a lot of shit done. With the help of four friends (cheers!) who worked shifts we've managed to create a temporary D&R office/storage. There's still very much left to do, and it still feels chaotic, at times use- hopeless and most of all extremely time consuming. Time that I feel I don't really have. Everything is still a total mess and it will take weeks, more likely month, to really go through it all carefully. I still have not quite decided in which order I should start.
I do know that I want to try and start selling the D&R releases asap so that I can get some money through label/distro sales as well and not only via your donations. I know that you help me out of good will, but I cant help it, I still get very bad conscience. Dont get me wrong, under these circumstances it means the world to me. But at the same time, I think about it every day in what way I can do to thank as many people as possible at the same time. An idea I have that everyone would benefit from is running a big sale when I re-open again. More info about that will follow later...

I want and will keep the label alive for as long as I really can. I already have a few releases upcoming and lined-up
and with your help, these are possible to be released as planned without any extra delays. It will be tough, but I'm convinced it's going to work. Right now everything feels overwhelming and tiring and quite honestly I don't know for how long I can carry on with this work in this tempo. The flood was last wednesday, so I've worked from early morning to late night for over a week. Two nights ago was the first time I got a full night's sleep, and it was absolutely wonderful. It did wonders. And now when most of all the records are securely stored I will not have to worry about that either. Most of all I just wanna catch a movie, enjoy a cup of black coffe in peace, listen to my recent pile of bought records and just relax. I have had one of the best summers in a long time, too bad it had to end in the worst possible way.
The good news is that much has survived completely intact, while other records and stuff, as you know, had to be thrown away. But LOTS of records/merch are also saved, but is anywhere from a little to very water/moisture damaged. I will post a list at this blog or sell these items at upcoming shows, haven't decided that yet either.
Other great news is that I got the new Martyrdöd LP (looks/sounds amazing!) and I'll start sell em asap! Hit me up with an mail if you wanna buy one and I'll deal with all your orders asap.

Important note; I
can't keep up with everything going on
on the world wide web, but if you are doing a benefit show or contribute in any way, please email me the flyer/info and
I'll do my best to help spread it. Smell ya later!

Nuclear Death Terror!!!

For almost a decade now Jocke & his label have been great supporters of both Nuclear Death Terror and Krömosom (not to mention RAW'ARSE on occasion), with the NDT - Demo 2005 7" being one of his earliest releases. Now he needs our help. As most of you will be aware, just last week he had some awful luck, and it looks like it could spell the end for D-Takt & Råpunk. We don't want that to happen, so we're donating merch to his distro as a benefit. Since we all live in Australia now, that means that postage is murder. So we need help with punk post! If you or anyone you know is traveling between Australia and Europe and can take a box of records or some t-shirts and patches, let us know. Don't be shy - you'll be rewarded with free merch for your efforts! Email us for details -
STAY PUNK!! - Nuclear Death Terror

D&R flood updates

I figured it was time for a short update; After five days of hard and intense work my health starts to take a lot of beating and I feel very tired. All of your emails and your support is the only reason that I still have the energy to fight. It is total chaos and I have no idea where or how to begin again after something like this. I sleep and eat terribly bad, which results in that the body and my mind becoming weaker by every day. On saturday night, early sunday morning, it was heavy rain again and it was not far from another flood. But with careful preparation, we managed to get control of the water flow. I have to move my stuff, and it's urgent. I can not sleep at night because of the fear that it will start raining, and it is expected to get more rain this upcoming week. I'm not write all this to make you feel sorry for me, it's the last thing I want to! I just want to be straight up and honest with you.
have good friends who volunteer and I am forever grateful to them. T
ogether we have managed to save more than I first thought was possible. But it would've been impossible without their help.

Some have asked "Cant you just clean the vinyls and make new covers, or sell them with no covers at all?". Trust me, I've saved as much as possible.
What has been thrown is not worth all the extra work needed. I might have been able to save another 30-40% but then I had to clean vinyl by vinyl by myself from all the dirt, gravel and leaves and with some luck, maybe get half price for em in the end. On top of that, except for all the extra work, I would not have been able to open the D&R shop again until maybe the end of this year. The choice was difficult and painful, but I think I did the right thing. There is just not the time for it. Who knows, maybe I would have given up earlier and felt more hopelessness and depressed?
punk vinyls and merch is probably the most bizarre
feeling I've ever experienced in my entire life. And I really hope I never have to do it again.

At last, I
will answer all your mails (I've
received +400 in three days) by time, it's the least I can do after all you do and have done for me so far. Cheers!

The (end) rise of D&R, part 2

Operation 'save what can be saved'
It’s still too early to say how it will be with all. I along with a bunch of friends have done our best to save what can be saved. Everything is moisture damaged, but more or less. One thing is for sure though, after all your support on only one day, this won’t fucking grind me down! I just want things to go back to normal asap.

I guess I have to swallow my pride for the survival of the label. I believe in what I do and I still want to continue supporting great friends and bands that play distorted hardcore d-beat mangel and who deserve to have their songs pressed on cassette or vinyl.

Damn, I'm not used to this kind of generosity. Not in my wildest dreams had I predicted this. I feel blessed and honored for having such ass-kicking friends and support world wide. I'm touched and truly grateful for all your help so far. I hope that I will somehow be able to give it all back to you some day. Don’t know what else to say but thanks.
Please, don’t feel bad if you cant contribute with money, there is more than enough with just an email of your concern. I feel it is important to point out that money is not everything in life and they are those who have it worse. But I'd be lying if I said it did not help me right now. I lost not only records and merch, but also some things of sentimental value. There is no dineros in the world for that. Your financial support is absolutely amazing and more than welcome. The first thing I will do with some of the cash that has already been received is to buy plastic boxes for all vinyls that have not been destroyed. New dark clouds cover the sky and you can hear thunder in the distance. As it seems there will be more heavy raining this upcoming weekend.

I'm sorry but I decided to delete the video on youtube. I feel humiliated enough as it already is just by receiving your gifts and money. Its been online for almost 24h now and as far as I understand, with +2000views, the message about the devastation has been spread in the best possible way already. Therefore I see no point with that video any more.

Gaki/Konton Crasher started some kind of a fund raiser on "Go Fund Me". It's 100% solid and legit. I have no idea how it works, but what I can tell so it does.

Now I have to rest and gather new strength. Tomorrow is another day. Up the punx, up the nature!

Records and merch, tour/band gifts and parts of my private collection is totally drenched, ruined and must be discarded at a value of around: 41.200€ / $54.900 / 35.200£ / 5.650.000YEN
and my insurance covers only: 5100€ / $6800 / 4000£ / 700.000YEN
because our stock is located in a storage room. I dont know/think I will survive this personal and economic crisis. And as it seems, this might be the end of D-takt & Råpunk Records. When a damage such as this strikes against a d.i.y punk label its hard to get back in the ring again. I could really need all your help and support right now. Feel free to get in touch if you think that you can help us out in any way. More information will follow as soon as i know more about this total mess. I really hate to beg and ask for favours and I would not do it if I absolutely not needed.
I need some sleep now, been working day and night for two days straight in a row. I will try my best to keep the punk spirit up, but at the same time I must admit that it feels pretty fucking hopeless right now.

The label, distro and everything around it will be closed indefinitely until I got a better overview of the whole situation. Thanks for all your support!

UPDATE: I am speechless, not because of the flooding, but because of all the mails and enormous support I received in less than a few hours. It means more than you can imagine. Just your thoughts/mails helps more than you think. It aint over yet. Thank you all!
