DR-06 TRANCE - DEMO EP
Desde Mallorca nos llega la demo en formato EP de TRANCE, estos jovenes veteranos nos deleitan con 3 canciones propias y una versión de Ultimo Resorte. Aquí podemos encontrar frescura playera, Punk Rock a raudales. No se que les dan de comer en Mallorca, pero últimamente todas las bandas que nos llegan desde allí nos sorprenden gratamente, en lo que a buen sonido y originalidad se refiere. Por la versión que tocan ya os podeis imaginar que palo llevan esta gente, Punk del de toda la vida, pero del que ya pocos se atreven (o son capaces) de facturar. Buenas lineas de bajo, guitarra con poca distorsion y una batería que nos recuerda al mismísimo Marky Ramone. Escuchando estas canciones te entran ganas de ir a la playa con la chupa de cuero puesta, a vacilarles a los guiris mientras tomas unos Daikiris.(EL TETE)

Como ganadores del I Concurso para Colectivos de Inmigrantes Disminuidos Funcionales y Psíquicos, organizado por el consistorio madrileño recientemente, sale a la luz esta grabación realizada en un entorno mágico, una tarde veraniega en la costa levantina.
300 Copias Diciembre 2009.
DR-04 EP REY MUERTO - ¡VIVA EL REY MUERTO!
Lo mejor sin ninguna duda es escucharlo, una y otra vez las canciones de estos cuatro chavales del barrio del Pilar, que me han demostrado una vez más que lo que me gusta de punk, aunque este en estado terminal, aún no ha muerto. ¿Y que es lo que me gusta del punk?, pues canciones sencillas, directas, divertidas y rabiosas al mismo tiempo, letras que parecen absurdas, pero que tienen más fondo que cualquier pseudo poesía del yonki de Extremoduro, que en este caso hablan de cosas cotidianas retocadas por el tamiz de lo absurdo y lo esperpéntico (lo Valle-Inclán jejejeje), ni más ni menos que como los mismos Ramones, ese grupo tan admirado y explotado pero a cuyos fanes se les ha olvidado que y como eran las cosas que tocaban y cantaban los melenudos neoyorkinos, porque sino no me explico ese rechazo desde tantos frentes supuestamente punks a la música que me/nos gusta.
300 Copias, 20 Vinilos Amarillo con póster A3 a cargo del gran ADSO. Diciembre 2008.(AGOTADO)
|DR-03 LP LA STASI - LLAMANDO AL MANZANARES |

Catálogo Discos Regresivos
Born in New York, RUBY RAY migrated to San Francisco in the mid-'70s. She entered the underground scene while working at Tower Records in North Beach. When she acquired her first camera, she quickly turned it into a weapon. RAY shot using a Nikon FM and Tri-X 400 film, the fastest film of its time. While documenting new bands and people for Search & Destroy magazine, she wielded her lens like many young DIY artists were brandishing guitars – bold, carefree and absolutely necessary.
As a fixture on the first wave punk scene, RAY photographed with a stark intimacy. There are candid shots of THE SEX PISTOLS' fateful trip to San Francisco, Darby Crash slashed and bloodied, Exene Cervenka sitting amongst discarded tires like tombstones, and THE AVENGERS' Penelope Houston writhing on stage.
From the introduction by Jon Savage: ""For a brief period, Los Angeles and San Francisco hosted vibrant subcultures that threw up sounds, noises, ideas and images that remain some of the 20th century's most vivid youth statements. You can hear how in the few records that were made at the time… These pictures are a record of a lost moment that is finally receiving the attention that it was always due.""
From the Edge of the World comes with a 16-song bonus CD that compiles some of bands photographed in the book: GERMS, THE ZEROS, THE DILS, THE AVENGERS, CRIME, THE SCREAMERS, CHROME, THE BAGS, MUTANTS, FACTRIX, THE SLEEPERS, NEGATIVE TREND, NOH MERCY, PINK SECTION, THE OFFS, and Z'EV. RAY accurately prophesied that her scene's art would endure and strove to depict it precisely as it was – breathtaking.
“Lo Stivale è marcio” affronta per la prima volta in modo approfondito gli eventi che vanno dal 1977 al 1980, anni di piombo, repressione e riflusso: un periodo analizzato sinora solo in brevi articoli o limitate e meno approfondite pubblicazioni. Lo fa recuperando l’approccio della stampa dell’epoca, ufficiale o 'fanzinara', analizzando a fondo le scene, intervistando in esclusiva i protagonisti di quegli anni furiosi, molti dei quali per la prima volta. Completano il lavoro, un breve excursus sull’approdo del punk nella TV di stato, sulla sua influenza nella moda, nel cinema e nei fumetti italiani, e un capitolo finale che analizza gli artisti che sono stati – volontariamente o meno – accomunati dall’industria discografica al genere, nel tentativo di vendere [close] qualche disco in più… Da Milano a Roma, da Vercelli a Pordenone,la storia rocambolesca di una moltitudine di bands divenute negli anni leggendarie: Tampax, HitlersSS, Elektroshock, Gaznevada, Decibel, Mittageisen etc... Un movimento pulviscolare e magmatico, costituito da poche decine di 'aficionados', che getta le basi per la nascita del rock indipendente italiano degli anni a venire. Il libro conterrà una compilation cd di rarità punk rock italiane 77-81 assolutamente inedite.

The Number Ones will take you to power pop heaven with their razor sharp 10 track self titled debut album. They are a Dublin based four-piece featuring members of Cian Nugent and The Cosmos (Matador / No Quarter), Cheap Freaks (Big Neck), Strong Boys (Milk Run), and The Pacifics (Bachelor). Even though they are based in Dublin, they sound like a classic Good Vibrations band from 1979. The Number Ones have energy, passion and tunes so good, it makes you think you've heard them already. Each track is a golden nugget of power pop fun that never outlasts it's welcome as every track is under three minutes. Although this sort of music seems to have been done a million times before, it sounds fresh in the hands of The Number Ones. This is pure summer fun for fans of Rudi, Protex, Exploding Hearts, Buzzcocks and The Tranzmitors."
100 FLOWERS (previously known as THE URINALS) were a power trio whose sole 1983 album is an enduring document of the Southern California underground. Based in crime-ridden '80s Los Angeles against the backdrop of juvenile hardcore and vapid hard rock, 100 FLOWERS crafted a sound that rests between the inspired bursts of THE MINUTEMEN and the pastoral jangle of THE DREAM SYNDICATE with similarities to the equally oblique MONITOR and THE GUN CLUB (who even included a URINALS cover in their set).
The trio wielded a gripping visual aesthetic and hyper-literate lyrical content that reflected their art-school backgrounds, while a ferocity and frustration borne out of their bleak urban environment permeates their songs. Strains of UK post-punk can be heard on ""All Sexed Up"" and skittish tension on ""Presence of Mind."" A far cry from the beach punk and surf rock of their contemporaries, album closer ""California's Falling into the Ocean"" contains all of their signature qualities: off-kilter delivery, subversive sentiments, and an irrefutable pop sensibility that reflects their immersion in LA's burgeoning Paisley Underground scene. The band splintered shortly after the release of this album, but time has only intensified the urgency of 100 FLOWERS' music.
In 1996, the band reformed as THE URINALS, releasing a CD of new material in 2003.
""Cool musicality with critical intelligence. And they thrash on a high level."" Thurston Moore
""This stuff both ignites my pilot light and blasts my boiler."" Mike Watt
Just off the presses too!! Hot wax from diggity-dogs A GIANT DOG is unleashed. A great chunk of meaty punk sizzlers, and flat out head-scratchingly overdue for these vets (get it! VETS!!!! Do-oi-oiii...). Female pipes yowlin' on top o' dissonant hooks knee deep in country-fried, blues-tinged LA punk musicality a-la THE EYES and FLESH EATERS in ye olde songwriting department is on point. I guess the inevitable comparison here is to X, but swap Billy Zoom's pretty production with the drunken scuzzy sheen enlisted to do the master's bidding! Oh, and Sabrina Ellis delivers ten-fold as front woman. Great pipes serving her rendition of a less-throaty Exene but with way more range and great, creeping, soulful yowl. What a bitch (Get it!!! A FEMALE DOG!!! Ooofffff!!!!). It all wickedly compliments the lyrical content of Cashen/Ellis' tunes/blasted punk rocking underneath. This 15-track long player SMOKES! Overloaded like the mothafuckin dog kennel! YOOoowww!!!!! LP includes download, and record includes the music!
Bandmembers for the LP: Jasper Hood (Black Jaspers, Shakin Nasties, Moorat Fingers), Daniel Distration (Frantic Romantics), Lotze (The Shocks), Chris Blank (The Bottrops), now with new live drummer John Boy Adonis (King Kahn & The Shrines)! If this is how boredom sounds....well then let me dwell in Bore-o-Rama forever SHAKIN' my NASTIES, compulsively fidgeting with my MOORAT FINGERS in forbidden privates and blasting this record while trying not to stain Vanessa del Rio's shirt like a FRANTIC ROMANTIC. Jasper Hood and Daniel Distraction have been dauntless Knights of Kings Assi's Round Punkrock Table since the beginning of time. Together with Don Lotzo of the SHOCKS and Chris Blank of THE BOTTROPS they ride once more as THE ABOUT:BLANKS and do what they do best: Unsheate the Punkrock sword to kill the mainstream dragon with some fabulous '77 sound that oozes with sticky melodies and snotty vocals. We all grew up listening to the traditional ditties of the BUZZCOKS, THE SEX PISTOLS and COCK SPARRER and today the MODERN PETS, THE BRIEFS (and all their follow-up projects) and the ABOUT:BLANKS make sure we will always go back to blank in our heads. Let's all surrender to insanity while ''Kill your boyfriend'', ''Your pretty face is going to the jobcentre'' or ''I don't wanna be a homosapien'' fill the white space of our padded cell. The last song ''Come again'' even has some SPITS like synthie lines that are suitable for funeral play. Seriously boring shit THE ABOUT:BLANKS come up with on this record that will help you empty out your exciting life, Punk!
2nd LP, and better than ever!! Think MODERN PETS & LATEX LOVERS meets BRIEFS or BUZZCOCKS!!!
Our first release of 2014 is ACCIDENTE second LP “Amistad Y Rebelión”. Their previous record completely blow me away and I consider it one of my favorite records that had come out in 2013.
This is insanely melodic and catchy punk from Spain. If you loved the first lp, you’ll love this one so much
Oviedo Power Trio Heavy Psych 70's Masters!!!

If anyone would ask me if I was serious about releasing this record from a totally unknown Swedish band, I would totally say yes. Why is ETT going to release Allvarets debut LP "Tank pa doden"? Not just because Allvaret means "serious" in Swedish, but because this LP is seriously great. Hailing from the Swedish underground punk scene, this catchy phenomenal guitar lines can only be written by Swedish guys and sound so perfectly vintage! Allvaret emerge from a fertile musical ferment to deliver some totally off the hook KBD punk with tunes that will stick in your head after just one song. The guitar sounds so Scandinavian – Masshysteri and The Vicious say Hello. The driving rhythm section with the harmonic drum and bass parts remind me of some kind of early UK street punk, without sounding stupidly Oi! The most important part is the awesome voice of Sushila, with Swedish lyrics matching perfectly together. A bag full of diamonds for sale, even if you don't speak Swedish, this record will make you want to start the kind of dance action you haven't had since that childish days way back then!
2 live-sets ("powerhouse london" and "reithalle bern"). much more powerful versions than on the studio-lps.
Hasta que esta banda de Indiana no vió su single editado en Trouble in Mind para mi eran unos perfectos desconocidos. Éste es su segundo trabajo grande, (su primer disco se lo auto editó la banda) con una portada que puede recordar a las “Emanaciones Lisergicas” de los Fuzztones en vena pop. Tras escuchar “Archie’s Army”, el tema que abre el disco, uno no puede dejar de pensar en este artefacto porque con una extraña mezcla de sonidos consiguen un fórmula en donde psicodelia, pop, garage, glam rock y teatrismo vocal conviven a la perfección. Por momentos pueden recordar en las voces a Jeff Lescher de (Green) con esos amagos de falsete vocal o pueden ser perfectamente capaces de prender fuego al tema de 1910 Fruitgum Company “1-2-3 Red Light”, además de hacerse pasar por la mas flipada banda psicodélica tejana cuando las guitarras vuelan en ese “Quaaludes ‘68” .Además reviven el sonido de las “semilla” invocando a Sky Saxon en “Ghost Stories”, inquietan con “Lady Blood”, se fijan de soslayo en la época en RCA de mis idolatrados Kinks cuando ejecutan “Robbin, the bank”, tanto en el sonido como en la ironía del las escuetas letras, y firman pequeños pedruscos de garage psicodélico como “Katie Verlaine” que se escapan a los clichés del genero. Cierran con una joyita a medio tiempo con guiño, de nuevo, a los hermanos Davies como es “Hey Valentine”. Me temo que este este disco va a terminar de desgastar, definitivamente, la maltrecha aguja de mi tocadiscos.(Oscarkotj-2012)
Despues de varios albumes en K7 y CD y mas de 20 años en la carretera llega por fin el primer album en vinilo de esta banda de culto.
Encontraras punk con grandes melodías con un aire al punk del 77.
Edición limitada a 300 copias, incluye CD de regalo. las copias están volando.
Of all the great albums released this year so far, this is the one that surprised and grabbed me the most. This is the first full release I’ve heard from these guys and they remind me of many of my favourite bands, but at the same time not sounding exactly like any other band. Think powerful, no bullshit punk rock with a heavy Leatherface/Jawbreaker influence, especially vocal-wise. The melodies and harmonies are so spot-on that it really is the perfect fast-paced summer record everyone hunts for each summer.
Yes, Paddy from D4 plays bass on this record, and no, I’m pretty sure he has not contributed any vocals. The funny thing is that their singer's voice is so clear yet mumbly that it really doesn’t matter that only Paddy's bass abilities are on this one.
On first listen, I say the last two songs were the only ones that were really special (""Dangerous"" and ""The Joke""), but after spin number eight or so, it all seems infectious, every song stuck in my mind and never to leave.
The band doesn't necessarily stick to the exact same style all the way through the album, too -- there’s one song that reminds me of a certain Irish psychobilly band.
The Arrivals have delivered one of 2007's punk rock gems with Marvels of Industry. Marvelous.
The Arrivals-Volatile Molotov LP with gatefold jacket
Free download with the LP as well! CD packaged in the bossest digipak!
Modern intelligence ain’t really much to write home about. The sad thing is that it doesn’t take much to NOT be a total dumbshit in this climate. I think, more than i probably should, to myself “Why aren’t The Arrivals the biggest band in the world?!”. They write some of the greatest songs with some of the best hooks ever. The lyrics to these masterpieces are, gulp, er, actually intelligent. Not just exclusively book intelligent, and not just street smarts neither. I guess something vital and relevant for and by 30-something punks that can translate and inspire anyone at any age. And I’m not talking about “Rectospective granulator cosmopheric ramulator” shit, but stuff we can all understand like THE END’s “You may anticipate the end With great devotion You may worship and defend a source to every motion”. It gives me goosebumps because I know what Isaac Thotz is talking about and the hook is easily appetizing.
What I’m saying here is that I don’t need to be pumped up with watered down political sloganeering for 12 year old’s.Volatile Molotov includes paranoia, desperation, and even some humor. 3 great ingredients for an album.
If anyone is listening, I wanna be buried with a copy of this album! Black vinyl copy will be just fine. So it could be that we don’t know how to sell records or people are just too stupid. Or maybe both. Should we tell em to just dumb it down? It’s not like they are unaware of the fact that rock n roll, itself, is a dumb thing to be involved in. They could get career type jobs and move on. They collectively and individually have done some dumb stuff. And like The Beatles did with Ringo, they even let Ronnie sing!
One of the most well known of Portland’s fertile post punk influenced scene, Arctic Flowers follows up their well received debut EP and split with Spectres. Their sound builds on the foundation of UK anarchopunk meeting their previous work with such bands as Signal Lost and The Observers. This 12″ has 8 songs leaning more towards the hardcore end of the spectrum while throwing in the occasional Mob influenced bit of melodic punk.
ASPIRINA INFANTIL llega a su merecidísimo LP debut, en edición de zafiro……
16 tonos demoledores donde los experimentados roedores de la isla ponen al reinado de patitas en la calle…..
Este disco es un claro ejemplo de lo que se puede hacer con un género banalizado como el HC-Punk cuando se tiene al genio en las venas y la peste en las manos…
Riffs desde lo profundo de la roca, sólidos como el macizo mediterráneo, bases frescas y al mismo tiempo ancestrales, ritmos penetrantes y quiebres majestuosos… y si sobre majestades se habla, la corona la lleva la prosa… Dulzura de cómics infantiles y acidez de matutinos, verdades duras y fantasías puras….
El blues de hoy es el Hc-Punk del mañana, o al revés? Da igual…este disco ha sido editado por Metadona & Beat Generation, y viene en edición maketada y serigrafiada por Gato, sólo por eso, me compraría los 500, fale??? Pues bueno, pues me alegro.
ESCENA OBSCENA Fanzine.
Two years after the release of their highly acclaimed self-titled debut-album the ATTENTION! from Vienna, Austria return with a BANG! delivering their brandnew longplayer 'Gettin' all ...' to those who are desperately waiting for more insane dance action and give the bleached out face of classic r'n'b a bright new robe.
Those guys celebrate the mod-aesthetics of the swingin sixties in perfection. Stylish from head to toe they deliver a frantic mixture of traditional blues, soul, beat and r'n'b to all the smart dancers worldwide and re-create a sound which hasn't been heard since those glory days of acts like Bo Diddley, the ANIMALS, the YARDBIRDS, THEM and the SPENCER DAVIS GROUP.
Did you ever shake your tailfeather to the sound of Rock’n-Roll!? Well, here’s your chance – THE ATTENTION! - five lads, armed with their love for Rhythm&Blues, fuse their infectious beats, catchy riffs and haunting melodies into an explosive, one-of-a-kind mix, that makes you wanna shout and shimmy! These five hipsters learned their lessons in bluesy licks, soulful shouts and pumping rhythms frighteningly well. So watch out for the heatwave that is called THE ATTENTION! rolling over your town. Make sure to put on your finest pair of dancing shoes and celebrate!
Just a handful of bands like THE JAYBIRDS, THE WHAT...FOR! and THE MOVING SOUNDS were able to capture the spirit of the distinctive r'n'b sound as precise as THE ATTENTION! YOU WILL SHOUT AND SHIMMY!!!
REISSUE.Remastered reissue of the Get Hip-EV 1996 release in high-quality 180-gram vinyl! The Authorities explode with 14 fast, short ones on this album. Recorded in 1982 –1983 and sounding a bit like early Descendents without the juvenile or pop sensibilities, this Stockton, CA band falls into the punk rock vein as opposed to hardcore. The very popular Killed By Death series brought attention to some obscure Punk bands that otherwise would have been totally ignored. One of these bands is the Authorities, a Californian early 80's Punk combo. Their almost classic single I Hate Cops/Radiationmasturbation was featured in Killed By Death Vol. 1 and created a great interest among punk collectors. Well, now a full length release is available for everybody to enjoy. The 14 tracks included here were recorded in 1982 and 1983 in Modesto, Ca. and Stockton, Ca.
We've come a long way, baby... Long awaited 2nd album from hardworking PDX youngsters, following up “Landmine Beach” LP, as well as singles. Driving, melodic punk/hardcore (but NOT “melodic hardcore” if ya get the distinction) with dark, swirling undercurrents. Catchy but not at all vapid. Sounding like a cross between Portland, Southern California, and Copenhagen, you could compare this to bands like THE OBSERVERS, NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, REAGAN YOUTH, or ADOLESCENTS.
Hailing from Portland, Oregon these 4 youngsters are influenced heavily by classic 80's bands like the WIPERS or ADOLESCENTS but also more recent outifts like THE OBSERVERS or THE EXPLODING HEARTS. On this LP they deliver 11 songs of anthemic and heartfelt punkrock that will make you dance dance dance! The first press will be 1000 copies, 800 on black and 200 on orange vinyl. All of them will have a silkscreened cover. In cooperation with the cool cat from SABOTAGE RECORDS
Reigning from the burbs of Portland in late 2003, Autistic Youth has spent the past 10 years touring and releasing records in North America and Europe.
After almost three years since their last full length record, Autistic Youth is releasing their junior LP. Drawing from both classic and obscure influences, ""Nonage"" is more refined, yet remains true to the sound they've had for so many years.
""Nonage"" was recorded and produced by Autistic Youth, Adam Becker and Matthew Morgan at Red Lantern studios in Portland, OR this past winter.
Anarcopunk de peru de lo mas mitico con nuevo sonido.
AVERAGE TIMES’ self titled debut LP perfectly blends the band’s self stated influences like The OBLIVIANS, JAY REATARD and the MEAN JEANS with a more disguised dosage of MANIKINS and MARKED MEN, all the while proving (along with fellow coconspirators NEW SWEARS) that Ottawa’s already prolific garage punk explosion is anything but a flash in the pan.
Recorded with local studio owner and DIY showspace runner Paul “Yogi” Grainger (WHITE WIRES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, MOTHER´S CHILDREN, ZEBRASSIERS, etc), and mixed with Ian Showalter (DAGGER EYES, WHITE WIRES, PREGNANCY SCARES). AVERAGE TIMES comes in with a bang and leaves well before overstaying its welcome.
With hooks as poignant as these, the band is smart to bury them beneath layers of fuzz and distortion, lest they become too quickly disguised as the bona fide pop anthems they’re built upon. Above all else, AVERAGE TIMES is unabashedly fun. Weird Canada calls this record “the audio equivalent of a devious and mischievous 12-yr-old with a slingshot”, while Ottawa Showbox says “their high tempo makes you want to listen to them as you skateboard on a hot summer day”!
No matter how you take that, AVERAGE TIMES is sure to cut the deep frost long overdue from Ottawa to your turntable!!!
A few years back I picked up a local Philly comp LP “Bloodstains across Philadelphia” featuring a bunch of local punk and hardcore bands. While listening I was taken in by the track “Sisyphus And The Gate” by “The Bad Doctors”. It had a great post punk / dark 80′s pop vibe that stood out among the other music on this comp. Instantly my ears were in love. The band followed this up with a self released LP “Distractions”, and while the band was clearly still finding their sound, this record just further proved to me this band was one of the best that Philly had to offer. Fast forward to early 2013 and the release of the “Spit it Out” 7″ released by Philly label “Eaglebauer Enterprises”. This single really showcased the bands move deeper into a world of synth driven, post punk, new wave. As soon as the needle hit this slab of vinyl I could not remove the record from my turntable for the next month. I knew almost instantly I wanted to work with this band.
Over the past half a year the band has been hard at work crafting a new record. The band recently finished the sessions for the upcoming full length record “Burning City” that will be released on Vinyl, CD, and MP3 in Spring 2014. This upcoming release will be out on FDH records in North America while P.Trash will issue a Euro edition.
Bad Sports consciously channel the grimy spirit of late 1970s New York City on their upcoming third album, Bras. The Texan garage-punk trio — composed of OBN IIIs' Orville Neeley (guitar/vocals), Daniel Fried (bass/vocals), and Gregory Rutherford (drums) — count vintage CBGB regulars such as the Dictators, the Dead Boys, and Television among the inspiration behind their latest bubble-crud effort. Produced by Mark Ryan and Jeff Burke (of fellow Denton misfits the Marked Men), the 12-track LP also wallows in '50s swoon ("Free Spirit"), celebrates power-pop enthusiasm ("Terrible Place"), and surges with proto-punk grit ("Eddie Bender"). Elsewhere on the record, Bad Sports claim they "don't wanna live a life back in time," but Bras communicates the exact opposite — it's a filthy, broken-down jukebox that doubles as a time machine. Stream it below.
Denton TX punk! Features TV's Daniel from Wax Museums and Greg Rutherford from High Tension Wires. Kinda like if the Marked Men veered back towards a more Reds style sound with a nod to the Boys.
Baddat For Trubbel "Det Här Är Inte New York" LP. Finally a US issue of this modern Swedish punk classic. Now with their ISO 9004 7" added. 20 songs total now blazing through in just 28 minutes. There are 100 Clear vinyl copies for mail order. 500 on Black for this run. Now in a full color cover with an insert that translates the swedish lyrics in to english!
12"-The Ballantynes make beautiful nighttime noise. On their latest release, Liquor Store Gun Store Pawn Shop Church, the garage soul outfit sermonizes on longing and love, vice and sin, good times and bad. Notes of 50s diner rock appear in the roiling keys and back alley choir support, and especially in the him-and-her vocals: his with a froggy twang reminiscent of The Sonics, hers a scarlet soulful growl. Church is a bewitching six-song spread of bouncing rhythms and singalong infectiousness. With this album The Ballantynes have made the perfect companion to a 3AM walk home, wandering through blinking stoplights and lonely streets, a little companionship to keep you warm until you fall into bed.
The city of Atlanta and the DMR gang are happy to announce the release of the Barreracudas appropriately titled debut record. Somewhere between The Heartbreakers (Petty) and The Heartbreakers (Thunders), the Barreracudas found a well of inspiration just deep enough to produce one of the biggest foot tappers of the year. Their sound shouldn’t come as a great surprise as most of these guys have been playing with Gentleman Jesse and His men for the past couple of years. While you wont find them dressed like their Heartbreaking predecessors, The Barreracudas have bound elements of 70’s dirt and glam with the radio friendliness of the likes of Dwight Twilley and Phil Seymore. You’ll discern no Pulitzer worthy poetry in the lyric sheet, but you will find eleven original tracks with hooks more infectious than encephalitis and a pretty sweet cover of Cheap Trick’s Come On, Come On.
Lady Kinky is beyond honored to present to you an amazing live show from 1979 by The Beat, feat. Paul Collins of The Nerves and The Breakaways, Mike Ruiz (drummer for Milk n Cookies), Steven Huff and Larry Whitman. Classic powerpop songs, played to perfection by The Beat at an exciting period in their career, when they were first starting! The show was played at the Palladium on December 13, 1979. One side only! 500 Handnumbered copies.
REISSUE.A great release of 1981 US punk. Beaver was the first (recorded) band of Government Issue's Tom Lyle. This LP contains the songs of their 7-inch plus unreleased demo tracks. Edition of 500 copies on ass kickin' black vinyl, plus download. For fans of early '80s HC in the vein of SOA, Void, Teen Idles and, of course, Government Issue.
Last time repressed of the debut LP of this Barcelona-based band with members of Venezuela and Poland. Coming from diferent punk and hardcore bands and with a clear idea of doing a new band with diferent sound. This Lp mix the (post)punk sound of most clasic bands like Joy Division or Killing Joke but more raw and agressive, mixing it with the most anachopunk sound of bands like Crass. Female vocals on the top giving to all a special touch. 10 songs on 350gr cardboard jacket and printed inner sleve on 280gr cardboard, all printed in the "rough side". Black vinyl.
A really nice release compiling the complete works from Bellevue. Bellevue were from Switzerland and were from the same scene that spawned Kleenex/Liliput, Sperma and Neon among others (members of Liliput actually play on this) and released two obscure 7"s at the start of the 1980's, both are reproduced here alongside some unreleased songs and some great quality live tracks (that actually add to the release and are not typical rave-up esque filler!). Bellevue sang in German and English, lyrically dealing with issues such as government surveillance, the army, drugs and genetic engineering. This is definitely an interesting release and worth checking out if you have any interest in post punk, or if you are a fan of bands like Kleenex.
If you were to find a person unfamiliar with the Big Boys, they would be one lucky son of a gun because they would be about to have their whole trip turned inside out. Fun, Fun, Fun... is the gateway to whole new world of empowerment. Anything in life is possible as long you have a positive attitude and this 12"" to sing along to. You wanna skate ditches? Let's go! You wanna paint outside the lines? Do it loud! You wanna rock? Go start your own band! Fx3s got all the things to move your ass, a short HC ripper, a couple funk numbers (complete with horns - necessary) and the oh-so-important infectious anthemic tracks that tie the whole scene together. Part Kool & the Gang, part Angelic Upstarts, Black Flag and John Coltrane, they drew from a wide vein of musical inspiration in their quest to open minds and instill a creative, uplifting, socially aware ethos. All that being said they did the whole thing with a smile the size of Texas itself.
Fun, Fun, Fun... A gift so nice, they named it thrice. -- Jensen Ward
(all copies also include an AMAZING 24 page 12x12 booklet of old fliers and photos)
The highly anticipated sophomore full length from Seattle's BIG EYES! With a solidified West Coast lineup, BIG EYES have stepped up their game with a more definitive sound and unified vision. "Almost Famous" finds the band drawing even more of a hard rock influence, while maintaining both the pop sensibility and punk edge that you've come to know and love.

3xLP.Billy Childish has been releasing records, painting, writing poetry and generally doing his own thing for the past 32 years.
He first took to the stage back in October 1977 with seminal punk garage band The Pop Rivets, they split after two years and from there he joined The Milkshakes along with fellow Pop Riveter Bruce Brand and local lads Micky Hampshire & Russ Wilkins, after that came Thee Mighty Caesars, Thee Headcoats, The Buff Medways and right up to date with his two current ensembles The Musicians Of The British Empire & The Chatham Singers.
This 51 Track compilation is a look back at the more Rock N Roll aspects of his musical career which is why there’s no spoken word or poetry on this album.
In amongst these more well known bands are tracks he recorded solo and with other artistes like The Delmonas, Thee Headcoatees, Singing Loins, Kyra Rubella etc.
Over the years Billy has been championed by lots of great bands and musicians including Beck, Mudhoney and Kurt Cobain and more recently by Eddie Vedder & The White Stripes. Even with that praise Billy has been largely ignored by the music press in this country which is really surprising as he has now released over 120 albums (including 4 on one day!).
Many of the tracks on this compilation have been unavailable for ages and some also have never appeared on CD as well as many unpublished photos on the cover and 12 page booklet.
Lois Wilson (Mojo) has writing the sleeve notes and there will also be a deluxe triple vinyl version as well as a double CD digipak deluxe package.
Now seems to be the perfect time for people to catch up with what he has been doing for the last 32 years.
Los lemas grabados en los pupitres, garabateados en las puertas de los lavabos, en las barandillas de goma de las escaleras mecánicas, en las mesas de formica de las bodegas; las frases forradas en las carpetas, escritas en las chapas, estampadas en las camisetas y en la piel. Berreadas en los conciertos, en las manifestaciones, en la cola del Inem, en la cola de la panadería y canturreadas en las salas de espera y hasta en las reuniones del AMPA. Coreadas en los portales con Xibeca antes, gritadas en el escenario siempre, recordadas durante los vermús de ocho horas, pinchadas en barbacoas con tocadiscos y susurradas a los hijos que acaban de nacer, aquí y ahora. Las cosas que importan, verdades por las que no pasa el tiempo. Ayer y mañana, ayermañana: las canciones de The Bite.
SÍ: a decir sí, a decir yeah, a los coros en clave de la y a los cánticos en clave de lo, a ir siempre al centro de las cosas, a buscar la acción, a los niños raros que brillan, a los perdedores que ganan, a la cerveza del viernes por la tarde, cuando el mundo secreto sale a la luz y hay gresca y tintineo de quintos, a las Rickenbacker trucadas, a Secret Affair y a Sugar Minott, a Orwell escuchando las trompetas precarias de sus compañeros, a tocar por el placer de tocar, de tocar más rápido, de tocar más puro; sí a cuidar de ti mismo, a cuidar de los tuyos, a pertenecer, a una idea que no se gasta, a una idea que es como un insecto en una bola de ámbar: brilla y durará milenios; sí también a decir No.
NO: a decir siempre sí, a pensar que todo es relativo, a los ricos sin caries de genética privilegiada, a los cenutrios vigoréxicos con cerebro de nuez, a su pavoneo fascista, a los tertulianos que funcionan a monedas como las teles de los hospitales públicos, al doblepensar de Orwell y a las cámaras de vigilancia en la plaza Orwell, no a los ukeleles con flores y a los charlatanes y veletas y trepas; no de no pasarán, no a dejar de tocar, nunca.
The Bite han vuelto con Right Down Your Alley y dicen todo eso y más. The Bite son casa, la orquesta de nuestros momentos mejores, el karaoke de la algarada, los riffs que nos convierten en caniches de Pavlov enloquecidos: que nos hacen mover la cola, pedir cerveza, chasquear, salir a la calle, marchar, abrazar cosas simples y hermosas. Como sus canciones. Canciones que son un mordisco: duras, pequeñísimas, pero que dejan sabor y eco.
¡The Bite han vuelto, larga vida a The Bite!
This quartet, formed around the talents of former KAMIKATZE-member Tess Torner, presents its first album containing ten enchanting songs that mix punkrock, garage and powerpop. And there even are appealing flashes of late '70s new wave.
REISSUE-BLACK HUMOR was an experimental rock band from San Francisco in the early 80's. (Not to be confused with ""blackhumor,"" alias of noise artist Frazer Hall.) They released just one, very hard to find LP on Fowl Records in 1982. Only 1,000 records were pressed, each with unique handmade covers: thick slabs of paint, collage, parrot feathers, dirt, whatever else happened to be laying around their Tenderloin flat. Many of these have since gone for high, collector prices or ended up in oblivion.
Existing in a parallel universe to other bands of the era, BLACK HUMOR's music is filled with jarring images of urban decay and desperation, bass-driven melodies, and layers of dissonant guitar and percussion. And perhaps the only known recording of a parrot that was taught to say ""Fuck You.""
This first time reissue uses the originally intended artwork for the album cover. Fully authorized and mastered from the original analog tapes. Includes new insert with liner notes by singer George Miller and engineer Tom Mallon.
Wow…finally the Blitzkrieg Bop’s anthology on Rave Up!!! Formed in Teeside, England in February 1977, they released three amazing singles. These were "Let's Go"/ "Bugger Off" / "9 Till 5" (Mortonsound - June 1977); "Let's Go" (re-recorded) / "Life Is Just A So-So" / "Mental Case" (Lightning - December 1977); and "(You're Like A) UFO" / "Viva Bobby Joe" (Lightning - September 1978). The core line-up of the band (John Hodgson aka Blank Frank, Alan Cornforth aka Nicky Knoxx & Damian (Dimmer) Blackwell aka Telly Sett) evolved from a rock band called Adamanta Chubb who started in 1974. The band played opening for bands such as Ultravox!, Radio Stars, The Saints, Penetration, Roogalator, X-Ray Spex, Generation X and Slaughter [close] & The Dogs. Amazing british punk rock, be fast to grab your copie!!!! only 400 available!!!!
Hasta hace unos meses no tenía ni la más remota idea de que esta banda hubiera existido. Demos un paso en el tiempo y situémonos en la gran manzana. La escena de garage en NY esta que arde con unos Fuzztones ganando adeptos a pasos agigantados, tras la estela de estos hay bandas como Outta Place, Tryfles, Twisted, Morlocks, Cheepskates o los recordados Optic Nerve que nos sorprendieron con dos magníficos ep para Cryptovision. The Bohemian Bedrocks fueron la banda que precedieron a los Optic Nerve y este lp es el legado de Bobby Belfirore, Ira Elliot y los hermanos Portnoy, diez temas atrapados en un cuatro pistas, sonidos que se movían con el aire que soplaba en aquel NY del año 1984, ecos de los 13Th Floor Elevators, Eyes ó Q65 en rugosas y correctas lecturas de temas como “You’re to much”, “She lives (in a time of her own)” o “I got nightmares”, pero lo que es interesante son las composiciones de Bobby Belfiore, desde “You really think you’re someone” que ya dejaba constancia de la manera de componer de este hombre, “Wish we never met” que parece salida del Aftermath de los Stones, una primeriza y rugosa interpretación de ese temazo titulado “Ain’t that a man” que me sigue sonando increíble y es que las guitarras de “I’ll give you lovin’” desprenden la magia de los Byrds y “I see the truth” es pura reverberación psicodelica con la bendición de Roky Erickson. La banda duro muy pocos meses, pues Elan e Ira se embarcaron con Rudy Protrudy hacia Europa en el primer tour de los Fuzztones por el viejo continente, pero dejaron un magnífico documento sonoro para completistas recuperado gracias Screaming Apple. (Oscarkotj-2013)
The first two singles from North Carolina, USA's Brain F≠ left a lot of people scratching their heads: Is it garage? Is it hardcore? (It's definitely punk.) How did they write such catchy riffs? How do you pronounce "F≠?" Brain F≠'s debut long player, Sleep Rough, will force you to ponder those same questions and may breed even more (and we mean that in the best way possible). Everything has been amped up for this release... the hard stuff is harder, the catchy stuff is catchier (oh, is it catchy!), and the weird stuff is weirder. There's no need for band comparisons, but if you're into that sort of thing then imagine the SAINTS' minds in TEENGENERATE and the AVENGERS' bodies sent to a dystopian future. Really, though, this sounds like the year 2011; if you like huge guitars, endless vocal hooks, and a turbo-charged rhythm section (you do), then you need to hear this record."
Follow up to the 45 "It's On Me" out thru P Trash, Sam Agostino (DIGGER AND THE PUSSYCATS, RUSSIAN ROULETTES, KAMIKAZE TRIO) is stepping out this 12 song debut LP on his own under the solo moniker BRAT FARRAR. Moving from WIPERS to JAY REATARD inspired punk through to noisy psychedelic rock like BUTTHOLE SURFERS or the classic BEAUREGARDE 1st LP with a 17 years old GREG SAGE on guitar and industrial influenced punk with a modern New Wave touch like THE SPITS, at the core of the record is Agostino's trademark songwriting and guitar stylings. All tracks written, performed, recorded, mixed and mastered by BRAT FARRAR.
Our Melbourne mate BRAT FARRAR is taking a break from being the frontman of DIGGER AND THE PUSSYCATS, KAMIKAZE TRIO and RUSSIAN ROULETTES in order to get a more important job done, namely to give his newborn a welcoming, warm and good start into this world. Nonetheless, his own world still rotates around a sun that unceasingly shoots down hot rays of Garage-Punk. To prevent his world from exploding, Brat recorded these songs with a little help from his current friends fatigue, confusion and dopamine all by himself in his bedroom in the wee hours of the morning. It comes as no surprise that the 11 songs on his second solo record range from the DIGGER styled Garage-Punk sound and juvenile attitude of “I’m dead now““ and “Good by myself“, the driving and melodic WIPERS catchiness of “Nothing there“ and “Off to see the world“, the SPITS-like “You’re a mess“ to the distorted beauty of “Johnny Sparrow“, a song which sounds as if JAY REATARDS’ ghost would have turned the knobs. Interrupting this constellation of stellar exquisiteness Brat takes us into much noisier landscapes on this album. There are drum machines and pumping basslines in “Closing in“ which reminds of BIG BLACK’s “Earth, Atomizer“ era, there are crazy and screeching BUTTHOLE SURFERS vocals in a disturbing sound collage called “Vapour wave“, there is even a 80s style synth-ridden track “Wouldn’t give you up“ and the slow and destroying ballad “No redemption“ at the end, which waves you goodbye from a state of mind far away. No question, BRAT FARRER’s world has changedand. Yet, he remains an all singing and dancing new wave machine with a heart full of noise.
Cover star Alida Vallo (1921 – 2006), an Italian actress who was a sight for the sore eyes of all men back in the day, makes these record an ear- and eye-catcher likewise!
Este grupo podía ser tu vida, y para muchos chicos de los ochenta lo fue. Brighton 64 resultaron ser la mejor banda surgida de las filas mods: inspiradores, enérgicos, vibrantes, fieros. Tenían las mejores canciones y las ropas más coloridas; las letras más memorables y la visión más elevada: toma del PASADO para crear algo NUEVO. En Barcelona ya no hay nadie como ellos, pero por fortuna llega Fotos del ayer (1982-1987), el recopilatorio definitivo de Brighton 64, coordinado por el escritor Kiko Amat (fan desde los catorce años) con la ayuda de BCore y los hermanos Albert y Ricky Gil. A la banda se la había recopilado antes, pero no así: este álbum tiene la mejor portada, la mejor selección (se han recuperado las canciones en poder de EMI que no aparecían en selecciones anteriores; todas del 12” La casa de la bomba y el segundo álbum El problema es la edad), fanzine interior con diversos textos de fans ilustres (Álex Cooper, Miqui Otero, Carlos Zanón, Miqui Puig, Felipe y muchos otros) y lujosa carpeta interior. Es el documento total de B64, ni más ni menos.
En Fotos del ayer encontrarán hits superlativos de diversas épocas de la banda. De La casa de la bomba y El problema es la edad se extraen “La casa de la bomba”, puro “Summer fun” y diatriba anti-adultos, sin duda su canción emblema; pero también –entre otras- insuperables secciones de viento (“La canción del trabajo”, con arreglos Tommy Hunt), auténticos stompers soul de ojos azules (“El mejor cocktail”, homenaje a la música negra con estribillo inmortal: “Otis, Jackie Wilson y Sam Cooke”) y guiños líricos al R&B (“Llueve en mi corazón”), así como pop hit de lo más exitosos (la espectacular “(Club negro) La calle 46”, donde Makin’ Time toparon con The Bangles). De Haz el amor (Twins, 1985) se incluye “La próxima vez”, que suena tanto a Vapors y los Jam de “A Bomb in Wardour Street” como a Dinarama, Parálisis Permanente o los Pistones de “Las siete menos cuarto”. En la emocionante “Conflicto con tu ayer” sopla ventisca Motown, pero es de factura Dexys/”Town called malice”, nada retro. No faltan himnos con numerales pop-art (“Explosión juvenil #17”) ni lazos a grupos afines (“Fotos del ayer” de Los Negativos). Y de la primerísima época se han extraído el magníficamente chatarrero himno mod revival “Barcelona blues” de 1983 y “No volverán” (cara B del segundo single “Deja de tocar a mi chica” de 1983), un precoz y emotivo lamento por los amigos perdidos. Además de la favorita “En mi ciudad”, que hasta hoy solo existía en forma de maqueta. ¡Y más!
Fotos del ayer habla de excelencia, juventud, orgullo y pasión extrema, todo lo que Brighton 64 representaron para sus fans adolescentes. Y las más grandes canciones, claro. Uno nunca vuelve a enamorarse así.
French poet and chameleonic vocalist BRIGITTE FONTAINE's career spans over four decades. Only a few years before her 1968 debut, Brigitte Fontaine Est…Folle, she moved to Paris to become an actress and took her prodigiously mature voice into the studio. Rich in the drama she brought to theater, FONTAINE synthesized chanson (French pop song) and world music, which eventually won her international acclaim as a performer and collaborator with a variety of artists from around the world (ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO, SONIC YOUTH and STEREOLAB, to name just a few).
On Est…Folle, FONTAINE takes flight over conductor Jean Claude Vannier's brilliant arrangements. Vannier, best known for his work on Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson, is in fine form, using what would become his trademark stylings: lush strings, taut rhythms culled from across the globe and a healthy dose of whimsy. ""Il Pleut"" swings from understatement to rapturous delight. ""Une Fois Mais Pas Deux"" is an infectious pop song that could have been culled from a French New Wave soundtrack. FONTAINE is adventurous and multi-dimensional with sophisticated lyrics, poignant melodies and enthralling delivery. Such artful handling of meter and rhyme (or lack thereof) is rare in pop song. Far from the era's yé-yé phenomenon, but never fully removed from its traditions, Est…Folle is an essential link in French pop music, exuberantly pushing the genre into more conceptual and experimental sounds.

Three dudes from Knoxville, TN where the GG Allin runs like the shits and the water is tainted with moonshine piss. Burning Itch are pure, unadulterated punk rock inspired as much by getting fucked up as they are by obscure, KBD-private-press vinyl. S/T is their first LP and does not disappoint...so long as you WANTED a payoff on the promise of their "machine-gun-toting" self-released 7", and the subsequent ragers on both Goodbye Boozy and Leather Bar. Yessir, the boys n girls with a hankering to get drunk to some loud, completely unpretentious punk rock ought to get their rocks off on this bad boy just fine.

Cuarta entrega de nuestra colección “Vintage Series”, que esta vez nos trae la reedición del que para muchos es el mejor trabajo de la legéndaria banda streetpunk inglesa The Business. Nos referimos evidentemente a su tercer disco en estudio “Welcome To The Real World”.
“Welcome To The Real World” fue originalmente editado por Link Records en 1988 y reincorporaba a Steve Kent (primer guitarrista del grupo durante 1980-81) a la formación que estaba integrada por Micky Fitz (voz), Steve Whale (guitarra), Mark Brennan (bajo) y Micky Fairbairn (batería). Esta segunda guitarra daba una fuerza y sólidez al grupo que no habían alcanzado en sus anteriores grabaciones. A destacar los melódicos solos de Steve Kent , que unidos a la potente base del grupo, crearon una tremenda combinación de fuerza y melodía, sin lugar a dudas los dos ingredientes básicos para todo grupo de oi!- streetpunk que se precie.
El disco contiene 12 coreables himnos en la mejor tradición del punk británico de finales de los 70s y principios de los 80s, lleno de letras afiladas y reales en las que ,sin caer en tópicos, describen la vida de la juventud obrera de los barrios ingleses.
Esta edición incluye una carpeta interior con las letras y fotos inéditas del grupo, no disponible en ninguna de las otras versiones del disco hasta ahora publicadas.
REEDICIÓN LÍMITADA A 500 COPIAS DEL SEGUNDO LARGA DURACIÓN DE ESTA BRILLANTE BANDA PUNK/OI! BRITÁNICA ORIGINALMENTE EDITADO POR HARRY MAY RECORDS EN 1985.
REISSUE.Pre-CHARLES DE GOAL. Official reissue and legitimate french avant garde/weird synth punk masterpiece. Leaded by Patrick BLAIN, singer/former of legendary 80s cold wave band, CHARLES DE GOAL. First and only self-titled, originally released in 1979.
Deep Ends is the second LP from Canadian Rifle, arguably Chicago’s best melodic hardcore band. The band plays confessional punk with brash vocals (reminiscent of Leatherface and early Jawebreaker) with themes that range from crossing lines when you know you shouldn’t, trying to keep something alive when you’re running on empty, as well as struggles with addiction. Needless to say, it’s pretty bleak in its lyrical and musical approach, but played with an angered energy that’ll keep you fist pumping for the duration. Pretty fucking great for a band with no dreams and no goals.
""For a band that's literally been flying the banner ""No Dreams, No Goals"" for about eight years now, these guys sure have made a lot of music. Deep Ends keeps with the melodic (don't call it pop-punk, motherfucker!), Midwest punk that they're known for. This is music that's less for the 'shirts off, dudes on' crowd and more for the 'loner glowering in the back of the bar, leave me the fuck alone' set."" - MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL
Los Canguros eran un grupo singular, incluso desde la perspectiva actual. Sus composiciones incorporaban elementos de muchos lugares lindos y ciertamente modescos (Makin’ Time, nueva ola, Tamla, Los Brincos, The Barracudas, pop 80’s raro, Petula Clark, The Prisoners, sonido de Rickenbackers...) pero, al igual que la mayoría de bandas mod de los primeros ochenta, trascendían sin angustias la influencia sixties que se les presuponía. Los Canguros eran extraños y pioneros y no encajaban muy bien en la escena que les vio nacer, y esos son atributos comunes en cosas que merecen la pena: los que son raros entre los raros. Dentro del culto mod –por aquel entonces enfrentándose a sus primeros cismas y guerras civiles- eran una estupenda anomalía: versionaban a Pere Ubu, The Cure y Booker T & The MG’s cuando algunas voces reclamaban ya cerrar filas por el lado sosainas. Acarreaban un órgano Farfisa la mar de ye-yé, es cierto, pero el cacharro era manipulado con intenciones perversas: algunas de sus canciones recordaban más a The Fall o Blue Orchids (lo veo ahora) que a Spencer Davis Group o Small Faces.

Todo el material seleccionado pertenece a las diversas maquetas grabadas por Los Canguros entre 1986 y 1990. La formación original, formada por Joaquín Felipe, Joan Quesada, David Parra y Kiko Santamaría, grabó dos maquetas entre finales del 86 y principios del 87, una de ellas en los estudios de TV3, que incluían las canciones “Cinco años”, “El sentido de la vida”, “El hombre de piedra”, “MCPR” y “En mi sueño”. Estas dos últimas aparecieron por sorpresa en una cinta magnetofónica cuya etiqueta indicaba otros títulos, y constituyen uno de los mayores hallazgos arqueológicos de este disco. La incorporación al grupo del guitarrista y compositor Sergi Arola (procedente de los Interrogantes), la cantante Charo Boix y el batería José Manuel González (ambos procedentes de Kamenbert), dio como fruto dos maquetas más, A way of life, grabada en Sabadell el 9 de agosto de 1987 y que incluía los temas “Eldorado Whisky Club” y “Yo-yos y boomerangs”; y Un salto adelante, con “El día que vuelvas”, “Un home mort”, “Un tipo raro” y “Como una mariposa”, grabada y mezclada por el guitarrista de los Negativos Robert Grima en verano de 1988. Durante una ausencia temporal de Felipe, el resto del grupo grabó en el local de ensayo la canción “El eco de las olas”, cantada por Sergi, y que ha sido recuperada in extremis días antes de la finalización de este proyecto. A la marcha definitiva de Felipe le siguió la grabación de tres canciones producidas por Jaime Stinus y que fueron publicadas en el disco recopilatorio Barcelona Húmeda (Urantia Records, 1989). De esta sesión hemos rescatado únicamente el tema “Tomás”, debido a que los otros dos, “Un tipo raro” y “Eldorado”, no superaban las versiones anteriores. Finalmente, ante la inminencia de un contrato discográfico que nunca llegó a concretarse, el grupo reclutó al guitarrista Manel Miquel y al productor Álvaro M. Maluquer (ex Distrito 5) para maquetar en el local el futuro disco. A estas sesiones del año 90 pertenecen “El regreso”, “Entre recuerdos”, “Levanta María”, “La música de la ciudad”, “Celos” y “Óyeme gritar”. Fue entonces cuando Los Canguros, cuyo único superviviente original era ya el bajista Joan Quesada, decidieron separarse, aunque años más tarde se reunieron para dar algunos conciertos, coincidiendo con la inclusión de “El día que vuelvas” en el disco recopilatorio Mi Generación (Al·leluia Records, 1995).

Nuevo artefacto del Capitan bajo el titulo “Furia Chicharra” en el que la energía, potencia y duración del disco forman unos ingredientes básicos en la confección de este nuevo trabajo. Sonidos punkoides en los que el Capitán refleja el excelente estado de forma en el que se encuentra y yo me marcho directamente a la “playa nudista”.
This is the first ever album of recordings by legendary UK band CASE, formed in Croydon in 1979 after being introduced to each other by Slimy Toad from Johnny Moped. Case played the pubs of south London and finally released their one and only 7”, the ‘Wheat From The Chaff’ EP in 1983, it reached the top of the independent charts and led to them being played heavily on BBC radio including plays by John Peel, Janice Long & Kid Jensen. They recorded a live Radio 1 ‘In Concert’ which was broadcast twice.
Originally, in 1980, CASE played primarily at a (fairly rough) pub in North Croydon, called “The Star” and built quite a following there before larger, occasionally more salubrious, venues beckoned. They famously played at The Rainbow in November 1981 - where smoke flares and buckets of maggots flew into the crowd as the band played, the Marquee Club (where they were banned for playing an encore – the only band to be banned for this since the Rolling Stones), Hammersmith Palais, 100 Club, the BBC Paris Theatre, ICA, & the Woolwich Tram Shed (and Chislehurst Caves!) amongst other less-prestigious venues.
With better management who knows where CASE may have ended up – as it is - they retain a legendary status among the legions of punk/ska fans...and graffiti historians.
Cat Party started in 2007. They are a post-punk band from Orange County, CA. Since then they're released a hanful of records and been playing shows non stop. They've played up and down the west coast states as well as the southwest. This year their send full length entitled ""Rhapsody In Black"" is being released. Sticking to their DIY roots the band is releasing limited versions of the cd while Sabotage records out of Germany is handling the vinyl. Release date for the new record is scheduled to be May 16, 2011.
Rhapsody In Black was recorded at Cal State University, Domiguez Hills. Our friend Josh McKendry (Jisaw Thoughts 7"", The Aftertaste/Cut City split 7"", Heartache Over Headache EP)
was finishing up school, getting his bachelors in sound engineering.
We recorded everything there as part of his final project and later fixed up 25% of the record (bass/vocals) down in San Clemente at Jasmine Studios. This record was done entirely by Ryan and Roger, Roger on drums and Ryan handling guitar, bass, and vocals. We are very proud of this record. There's some typical Cat Party tunes on here as well as some songs that took on a new direction/approach. I hope everyone enjoys the record, we worked extremely hard on this one.
Official reissue of the first legendary long player of CHARLES DE GOAL. Originally released on New Rose in 1980. Leader of the french 80s cold wave scene. Probably the greatest French minimal electronic punk record (LP)

Hailing from Tennessee, Cheap Time has been around in one incarnation or another since 2006. The nucleus has always been Jeffrey Novak, who writes and sings in addition to playing guitar and keyboards. The band began with members of the band Be Your Own Pet rounding out the lineup—theirs was a sound of a teen punk band with more attitude than musicianship, owing more than a little to early Redd Kross. By the time Cheap Time recorded their debut album, the personnel had changed drastically and, in addition to improved musicianship, Novak brought in influences of ’70s glam and power pop acts like Sparks and The Quick. The band followed this with more lineup shuffles and a sophomore album, Fantastic Explanations (and Similar Situations), that was darker, moodier and more complex than its predecessor. Despite the many changes, however, Cheap Time has always been a sum of its parts. A quintessential ingredient is the low-fi bombast with which they scuzz up their otherwise lightweight brand of simplified 1970s glam punk, packing an impressive amount of adolescent snottiness into two-minute blasts of sound with both precision and melody. Cheap Time are now back with their third and by far strongest record to date. Recorded in Novak’s new home studio, Wallpaper Music distills perfectly all the phases through which the band has passed to date. Retaining both the punk moves and pop-damaged glam jams, the band delivers their most realized, cohesive record yet. Songs like “More Cigarettes” and “Another Time” are Aussie-esque punkers in a Saints-like vein, while “Underneath the Fruit Flies” shows that Novak has found a happy medium between his punk tendencies and his desire to experiment. This latest installment will satisfy anyone who has been keeping track of this band’s trajectory and make them look forward to what might come next.
Cinema Red and Blue is a pop music collaboration between members of Comet Gain and Crystal Stilts, with guest appearances by Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor), Hamish Kilgour (The Clean), Linton(aislers Set) and a host of others. Heavy rec room vibes, lotsa booze, lots to do and little time to do it... the supersesh lives on, with a host of David Feck originals and a bunch of covers (the Chills, Julian Cope, Dead Moon, Len Bright Combo and Vic Godard), assembled in the belief that something good can come from the stored memories and shared experiences of friends who play music.

REISSUE. Coloured Balls were one of the best pure rock n roll groups to emerge from the early 70s Australian scene. Sure, The Saints and Radio Birdman stayed together longer and released a slew of fine albums during the punk era but it was the Coloured Balls who pioneered the proto punk sound earlier in the decade. Their wildcard was Lobby Loyde, Australias premier guitar hero whose pivotal roles in beat/psych/blues rock groups The Purple Hearts, The Wild Cherries and Billy Thorpes Aztecs made him a major home-grown star down under. Ball Power is full of raw, hard guitar rock and proto-punk. It's not only the Coloured Balls greatest album but also the finest music of Lobby Loyde's long, fabled career. (Rising Storm)

If there ever was a power pop band that oozed coolness out of its pores it would be The Connection. This new full length LP hits the ground running with the mint single “Wrong Side of 25,” chock full of classic guitar riffage. The band’s sound has continued to define the edge half way between The Beatles and The Stones. Its un-apologetically retro, and they relish every note.
Another “radio-ready” hit is “She’s A Keeper” with an unbeatable hook that rivals The Wonders “That Thing You Do.” It then shifts the key to a surf styled “The Way Love Should Be,” and then blasts those guitars on “Crawling From The Wreckage (Of A Saturday Night).” A country-styled shuffle leads “Susan” and the tempo slows down for the garage psyche “Haze” and “Not How It’s Gonna Be.” Even the umpteenth version of “Johnny B. Good” sounds fresh as the title track. No filler here, and lead singer Brad Marino and guitarist Geoff Palmer hit it out of the park. It deserves a spot on your top ten for 2013, its definitely on mine.

1976. Taxi Driver remporte la Palme d'Or, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest plusieurs Oscars. Premier vol commercial du Concorde. Débarquement du Loto National pour faire rêvasser le français besogneux. Déjà un plan de lutte anti-inflation dans l'hexagone et une grave crise monétaire en Angleterre. Les rêves, les ambitions, les dogmes et les désillusions s'entremêlent déjà à foison.
A Marseille, après avoir grattouillé ensemble au lycée, une petite bande imbibée de rock investit Le Faust. Composée de quelques historiques de la scène phocéenne, les futurs Wild Child, Spécial Service et bien d'autres encore, on y trouve Patrick Capozzi et Michel Sarel, tous les deux guitaristes. Tout en devenant pour quelques temps les leaders officiels des platines du lieu, ils commencent à jouer et composer ensemble. Sous influence des Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, Stooges, Dylan, Flamin' Groovies, Blue Öyster Cult. Décidant d'aller expérimenter l'esthétisme musical riot naissant ou déjà mort, selon si l'on perçoit le punk à moitié vide ou à moitié plein, ils s'envolent pour l'Angleterre.
1977. Après une immersion dans le milieu créatif londonien du fun et du destroy, ils atterrissent à Paris, enveloppés de néant et de slogans, avec une seule fixette en tête : enrôler des musiciens pour former un band. En vain. C'est seulement à la redescente sur Massalia, qu'ils dénichent un batteur (Pierre Brolli) et un guitariste (Patrick Marchand). Patrick Capozzi braque la basse et se met au chant. Sans renier leurs nourritures musicales originelles, ils s'attèlent à un répertoire de reprises en puisant à la louche dans les 60's et 70's et saupoudrent le tout d'influences épicées ramenées d'outre-Manche : The Stranglers, The Clash, The Damned. Sans doser l'anticonformisme et la conformité, ils espèrent tout simplement goûter à la célébrité.
En écoutant un bootleg des Rolling Stones, ils se désignent Cops and Robbers. Une alternative à Police and Thieves (initialement de Junior Marvin en 1976, repris par The Clash ensuite), mais surtout en référence au titre écrit par Kent Harris pour Boogaloo and his gallant crew, popularisé ensuite par Bo Diddley (crédité par les Stones en tant qu'Ellis McDaniel).
Par l'intermédiaire de Sylvie Brocheré, qui les invite à répéter chez elle, ils migrent en Pays d'Aix. Ils y rencontrent Monsieur Raymond Malphette, Président du CIQ de la Cité Saint Eutrope. Un deal de troc'n' roll s'instaure entre eux : un local de répétition en échange de quelques concerts d'animation.
Rapidement, les concerts sur Aix se nouent. A La Grignotèque. A la MJC avec les Wild Child. Puis première partie des Stinky Toys. Des reprises phares fortifient leur répertoire de compos : Route 66, Don't you lie to me, No escape des Seeds, Pipe-Line, Sonic Reducer (Stiv Bators, leader des Dead Boys et plus tard chanteur des Lords of the New Church, baptisera Patrick Capozzi Mr Sonic Reducer lorsqu'ils se croiseront par hasard au Flipper, une discothèque marseillaise, en 1983).
Mai 1978. Les deux guitaristes filent vers d'autres horizons. Patrick Capozzi épingle la guitare lead. Grâce à leur manager Philippe Malphette, Denis Durand (beau-frère de Jacques Higelin) empoigne la basse. A Vitrolles, devant 3000 personnes, ils exécutent la première partie d'Higelin. La scène punk ayant le vent en poupe, la rapine réside en un franc succès.
A la fin de l'été 1978, lassés d'Aix en Provence, Patrick et Pierre conviennent d'ancrer dans la cité du Vieux-Port. Chez eux. Le guitariste Jean-Luc Scinicariello (des futurs Special Service puis Bootleggers) et le bassiste Pierre Exbrayat, vieille connaissance de concerts de Capozzi, les rejoignent.
Avec Pierre Cenatiempo et Françoise Lo-Ré, ils décident de créer une association pour combiner des concerts. Monkey Production voit le jour. En 1978, à l'Alhambra, ils organisent ce qui est le premier festival punk de Marseille. Dans une ambiance très sympathique, solidaire et conviviale, caractéristique du milieu rock de l'époque. La scène fourmille de groupes tels Nitrate, Wild Child, Dustbin Radiation, Parfum de Femme, mais surtout de public.
Ayant rejoint le gang sur scène, Françoise Lo-Ré distille les parties de clavier, les chœurs, et parfois chante en lead. Le concert de Cops and Robbers et Magazine (anglais !) au Ciné Madeleine en 1979, déchaîne un tel enthousiasme de l'auditoire, qu'il en résulte une destruction méthodique et enjouée de la salle.
Annick Dufeu remplace Philippe au management. Le groupe est sélectionné pour représenter sa ville, au Théâtre Sylvain, lors de l'escale marseillaise de la tournée ""Le Rock d'ici"" avec Ganafoul, Little Bob, Au Bonheur des Dames.
Marc Iozzino remplace Pierre Brolli à la batterie. Un sax, Jeff Griffon, se joint au groupe. Des maquettes sont enregistrées avec les moyens du bord. Côtoyé à Londres, Youri Lenquette, futur photographe du magazine Best, refourgue le contact de Marc Zermati à Patrick. Un coup de fil. Un rendez-vous fixé à Paris, chez des amis. La veille de l'entrevue, Patrice Skunky, ancien batteur d'Asphalt Jungle, balance que Marc est le meilleur plan qui soit pour un groupe. Le lendemain, Patrick et Marc se rencontrent, écoutent la maquette. Marc, qualifiant les démos d'excellentes, décide illico de prendre le management en main. Commence alors une virée dans les maisons de disques. A la grande surprise de Patrick, en deux jours, sans avoir besoin de commettre d'effractions, sans avoir pris de rencards officiels, toutes les portes s'ouvrent pour les recevoir. La Maison Barclay manifeste l'intérêt le plus affirmé...

Atención! Que Andalucía es la tierra prometida del punk es un hecho que se conoce en todos los rincones del planeta.
Más y más grupos están naciendo poco a poco para formar parte de un ejército de criaturas indeseables, que algún día conseguirá destruir todo lo que hemos conocido hasta ahora para crear ese mundo nuevo deseado desde lo más profundo de nuestras entrañas.
En medio de esta ola de incontrolable agitación sonora, una nueva noticia esta llegando a los oídos de todos los punks del mundo entero.
COPYCATS, ese trío garage-punk macarra y setentero afincado en Granada, que hace muy poco hizo que temblasen los cimientos de Sevilla y Málaga en dos conciertos inolvidables, le regalan a nuestros maltrechos cerebros el que sin duda será uno de los mejores discos de 2014: An Idea Died.
Un discazo de los que no puedes parar de escuchar, con 14 temas que parece que los hubieran compuesto los Stooges, Stiff Little Fingers y Gun Club, después de tres días juntos consumiendo sustancias alucinógenas.
Es el 3º disco de estos bilbaínos. Hacen Rock, algunos dicen que más Postharcore, Postpunk, Punk... El caso es que tienen alma propia y en éste sí que han logrado plasmar mejor como suenan en directo y han estrujado bien las canciones.
Por si no les conocéis y queréis probar. Se puede bajar libremente, ellos mismos pusieron los enalces antes de que saliera a la venta.
Y una recomendación personal, si pasan cerca vuestra y queréis vivir un concierto. Pasaros, yo me quedé acojonado tras verlos y me enganché del todo al grup

CRETIN STOMPERS landed in our lap on an other-worldly afternoon one day, sent directly from the future and completely ready to bury your past and everything you’ve ever held dear. Not even a fully formed embryo upon their first recording, the interstellar project began as a long-distance collaboration between past members of the ethereal BARBARAS, MAGIC KIDS, BOSTON CHINKS, (and later, JAY REATARD BAND / WAVVES) in Memphis, and their mysterious cohort, (who had never been met or even spoken to while making the record!) BIG MUFF RADIO, living up north in Brooklyn, and has reached it’s fully-developed final mutation in the form of the Looking Forward To Being Attacked debut LP. And just like a Xenomorph wrapping its way around your head right before that inevitable lobotomy, the Cretin Stompers infectious oozing pop slime will find its way into any of your exposed orifices, so be sure to wear a tight belt as this is one debut album with the power to entrance and eviscerate like never before. Packaged with exclusive artwork by WILLIAM EGGLESTON. Edition of 550 copies.
San Francisco's first and only rock 'n' roll band, CRIME loomed over the entire Mabuhay Gardens scene with their blistering 1976 single Hot Wire My Heart. The group's loose, damaged rock 'n' roll was as immediate as it was controversial. They were punk by any definition, yet shunned the label with a guttersnipe sneer. Their meticulously cultivated aesthetic of S&M graphics and police uniforms produced some of the era's most indelible imagery. One of their finest moves was playing in the San Quentin prison yard.
Formed by guitarists/vocalists Johnny Strike and Frankie Fix, CRIME enlisted bassist Ron the Ripper and drummers Ricky ""Tractor"" Williams (later of THE SLEEPERS), Brittley Black, and Hank Rank. Joey D'Kaye later joined on keyboards and bass duties.
For the first time, this LP release collects the sick energy of CRIME's three singles along with nine previously unreleased studio recordings from 1976 to 1980. The visceral churn and unwieldy leads on tracks like ""Frustration"" and ""Piss On Your Dog"" make Murder By Guitar the definitive statement from this prescient American underground band.
BIG STAR guitarist CHRIS BELL was one of the unsung heroes of American pop music; despite a life marked by tragedy and a career crippled by commercial indifference, the singer/songwriter's slim body of recorded work proved massively influential on the generations of indie rockers who emerged in his wake. Lyrically poignant and melodically stunning, this lone solo album is proof positive of his underappreciated pop mastery. 180-gram vinyl.
Another power pop gem from DOUCHEMASTER RECORDS. Crusaders of Love are the real deal. Hailing from Lille, France and with members from another great band, HAPPY BURGER, on this, their debut LP, they bring us the perfect summer record. If you're into power pop just the slightest than this is a must have.
10"+DVD.Deluxe Version of the 1ST U. K punk bands recordings. Includes 10" Vinyl / DVD of live rehearsal / Large Promo Advert Poster an Additional rediscovered recording, detailed Booklet with loads of info and pictures. Crushed Butler were a British proto punk / hard rock band that existed between 1969 and 1971. According to 2008's Pretty Vacant: A History of UK Punk, the band "was, in many ways, Britain's first proto-punk band."Band members went on to form Darryl Read's Beat Existentialists, The Gorillas and to pursue solo careers. Crushed Butler formed in 1969 with a line-up of JesseHector (guitar, vocals), Alan Butler (bass guitar) and Darryl Read (drums).They initially played cover versions of other bands' songs, before writing their own original material. They recorded in EMI, Dick James Music DJM studios (where they were thrown out for being rude to the sound engineer and caught on a surveillance camera swearing about Harold Champagne a senior executive of the company), De Lane Lea studios (sessions came to an early end as the studio was beginning to get trashed with curry on the floor, Hector dancing on a grand piano, and drumsticks sticking in the new pegboard ceiling). They also recorded at Decca's West Hampstead studios and Marquee Studios, but they failed to get a recording deal even though they were supporting major acts like Mott the Hoople, Atomic Rooster and UFO. The business simply refused to sign them, as Read once quoted in a record collector two-page spread article by Mark Paytress, "We were an incredible threat to the industry, they didn't want these young upstarts breaking into the scene and changing it!". The band changed their name to Tiger, and the line-up also changed to include Barry Wyles, formerly a member of an early version of Queen. As Tiger they were managed by Neil Christian of The Crusaders, and Arthur Anderson joined the band on bass guitar. However, they still were unable to secure a record deal and the band split up in late 1971 when Read took up a job as a songwriter at Track Records. Hector and Butler continued as Helter-Skelter and went onto form The Hammersmith Gorillas (later shortened to The Gorillas), while Read pursued a solo career, as well as working as an actor. Read's works have included three albums (Beat Existentialist (1991) and Freshly Dug (1999) with Ray Manzarek and Bleeding Paradise in 2007. He currently performs rock concerts with his group Beat Existentialists in Europe and the USA. Crushed Butler's recordings were eventually released in1998 by Dig The Fuzz Records on the Uncrushed album.
Portland, Oregon's powerpop sensation returns with their second album to date and for those of you who thought that they can't top their stellar debut, I'm sorry to disappoint you but on DANGEROUS GAME they are taking things to a whole new level. Ten new tracks of 100% pure pop drawing influence from all decades of Rock'N'Roll.
“A breathless collection full of high energy songs colored by a punk vocal aesthetic and good old-fashioned rock 'n' pop chops. The hooks are strong throughout; the backing vocals are top-notch; the album flows like fine wine with a kick. I predict big things for this album. Anyone with even a passing interest in high-energy pop 'n' roll is going to go crazy for your latest effort!” -Alan Haber Pure Pop Radio

“Smart Accessories” is the second album from Seattle’s Cute Lepers who, as I’m sure you know, are a six/sometimes seven-piece band from Seattle, WA equally influenced by first wave punk, mod-revival, power pop, with the spirit of Johnny Thunders... together with occasional hints of doo-wop, early 60's rock 'n' roll and a load of female back-up vocals. Led by chief songwriter Steve E. Nix & Kicks (yes that’s Steve E. Nix & Kicks from seminal Seattle band The Briefs!). After a couple sold out singles and lengthy tours of the United States and Europe, summer 2008 their debut album ""Can't Stand Modern Music"" was released on DG in Europe and Blackheart Records (yeah... the label Joan Jett started up a few decades ago!), it combined the attitude of punk rock, the style of mod, and the polished sound of pop. The album went on to win the Best Punk Album category in the 8th Annual Independent Music Awards.

rhr058: DAVILA 666 - '12"" EP'
Review: davila 666 [website] are in full-on take no prisoners mode. we asked them for a couple songs for a 7"" and what we got was 5 near perfect pop anthems that would never fit on a 7"". of course we wanted them all so we threw them on a 12"" and what youre getting is probably their best release to date. these songs are instantly addicting but unlike other puerto rican imports consumption is no crime, it's encouraged! on top of that their live show is one of the best around and their constant touring has left a path of amazed fans. its no wonder that when we booked the atlanta mess around the legendary urinals asked specifically not to be placed after davila 666 in the lineup!! who in their right mind would want to follow davila 666? ...better to follow 'em with a shot of something equally strong.

Formed in 1980, in order to show them all! The Schaeffer brothers Josef (bass ) and Manfred (drums) brought Herbert "Lörkas" Langer (guitar) on board, who had recently quit the Punk combo Pöbel. With singer Hannes the first line-up was complete. After the HEINZ NITTEL assassination (city councilor of the social democratic party in Austria who was murdered by palestine group ABU NIDAL on the first of may on his way to town hall) the band name was an obvious choice - DEAD NITTELS (following our musical heroes the DEAD KENNEDYS). The space in the Wiener Gassergasse (referred to as GAGA) offered by the autonomous youth centre was used as a rehearsal room. GAGA soon would become the nucleus of [close] viennes punk. A lot of legendary DEAD NITTELS concerts took place in that time. Their first concert however was a gig as a supporting act for the female punk band A-Gen53. after several reshuffles considering the position of the singer, Christian Koczera, nicknamed Hulk, took over. With him a second guitarist in the person of Michael Neumann, joined the band. In this line-up the DEAD NITTELS recorded the so- called green Kassette AntiNewWaveLiga. CRUDE AND STRONG EURO PUNK!!!
REISSUE.The title says it all. One of the pillars of the Spanish Oi! music scene, originally released in 1985.
Decibelios are one of the pioneers and main reference points when talking about Oi! music in Spain. Formed in 1980 in Barcelona, their beginnings mixed late 70s punk and hard rock but they gradually introduced ska elements into their sound, always accompanied by a combative and in-your-face attitude.
The culmination of that sound and attitude took shape in the 1984 LP ""Caldo de pollo"" and the mini-LP ""Oi!"" from 1985, reissued now on vinyl for the first time. The latter presents the band and their proposal at their peak and is one of the essentials records of Oi! music recorded in Spanish. It contains fierce highlights from the band's repertoire such as 'Viento de libertad' and 'Subversión', ska gems like 'Ningún nombre de mujer' and a tremendous cover of The 4-Skins' 'Chaos'.
Despues de un brillante EP, DECRANEO llega con un gran LP bajo el brazo, coeditado por unos cuantos sellos de Usa y Europa. 327 copias de Punk transgresor y rabioso. Voz femenina y riffs de vertigo. Precioso arte por Spicoli – Mallorca Punks!
Fighting their way out of the basement comes Portland’s DEFECT DEFECT with their best record to date! After two quality Eps and constant touring, Defect Defect hit it just perfect with their catchy-as-hell melodic punk style that hits hard with Colin’s spastic and blunt vocal style with Adam’s excellent song writing. Tracks like Stolen Ground and Post Apocalypse are perfect bookends of this argent and essential LP. Featuring ex and current members of the Observers, Autistic Youth, the Minds, Clorox Girls and the excellent Arctic Flowers this record will stick out over the pile of vinyl coming out in 2010. Do not miss out on this exciting band! US version is out on the outstanding RESIDUE RECORDS out of Chicago, IL!!
Exactly 30 years ago (in June 1981) the German NDW band NICHTS released their first LP ""Made in Eile"" on the independent record label Schallmauer-Records. With it they produced one of the earliest and most important NDW records, directly compared to ""big names"" like IDEAL and NEON BABIES... Already one year later the major label WEA signed them.
Now it's that time again where a young German band with NDW punk roots releases an awesome hit record! After two split EPs here's finally a full length album from Tübingen's 4 head Powerpop/NDW Combo. 10 Songs between NICHTS, HANS-A-PLAST and BUZZCOCKS, sounding like the No Fun and Schallmauer Records stuff from the early 1980s. The mixed German/English lyrics shuttle between life doubts, adapted subjects and people on the go, always with an irresistible and beat-twitching tendency to drag you to the dancefloor. The weighty female lead vocal of Helen totally reminds you of NICHTS singer Andrea Mothes. Now come and check it out yourself right now!

DEVO's Hardcore documents the group's beginning as pre-punk outcasts in the fertile Akron, Ohio underground rock scene. Spawned at the nearby college of Kent State, site of the infamous May 4 Massacre, DEVO formed as a conceptual art project armed with a radical philosophy of de-evolution. Brothers Mothersbaugh (Mark, Bob, and Jim) and Brothers Casale (Jerry and Bob) along with drummer Alan Myers soon whipped-up an otherworldly brand of ""devolved blues"" that could hold its own alongside the beatnik groove of 15-60-75 (aka The Numbers Band) or the primal rock poetry of the Bizarros.
Recorded on various 4-track machines and in tiny studios, basements, and garages between 1974-1977, Hardcore reveals their strikingly clear vision: rock n' roll stripped bare of its collective cool and jerked back into propaganda fit for post-modern man. It's no surprise that these transmissions would soon catch the eye and ear of Brian Eno who later produced their landmark 1978 debut album. Noisy synth, strangled guitar chops, and a primitive rhythmic thud power the early DEVO sound. Threaded beneath it all are lyrical themes of post-McCarthy paranoia, middle-class ephemera, and DEVO's long-running topic of choice: sex, or lack thereof.
Few moments in pop music history can match the grinding, pent-up energy of ""Mongoloid"" and the spastic bounce and sputter of ""Jocko Homo"" (two anthems presented in their earlier and superior versions here). Cult favorites like ""Mechanical Man"" and ""Auto-Modown"" make Volume 1 essential listening.
Superior Viaduct and Booji Boy Records are proud to present DEVO's Hardcore to a new generation of spuds, lovingly packaged with Moshe Brakha's stunning cover photography. As David Bowie said in 1977, DEVO is indeed ""the band of the future."

THE DICK SPIKIE son una banda de streetpunk de Japón.
Die Schwarzen Schafe have been around since 1985 and have released more than 20 records, that's really impressive. They have probably influenced bands like Rasta Knast, Dritte Wahl and lot's of other german bands. "The Black Sheeps" is very energetic and melodic and there is almost some Oi! vibes in their music. Is the german punk scene underrated? I would say yes. The more I look for good band, the more I find. There is so much more than just Die Toten Hosen, a band I never have been very keen of. I wish my german was better because the lyrics are in German and they seems to be interesting. Please, translate them to english next time. I had never heard Die Schwarzen Schafe before so I don't know much about their earlier sound but I have read some other reviews of this album and it seems like many reviewers think that they just get better and better. Even if it's lot's of melodies is there a few tracks that is more aggressive like "Das ist nicht mein punk", "Schrei" and my favorite tracks "Nein nein nein".
N.A. is great political female-fronted punk rock from USA. DSS is old-school punk rock from Germany.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Digital Leather, the musical project of multi-instrumentalist Shawn Foree, is releasing his 5th LP Modern Problems. Written and recorded after a brief stint in Berlin following the death of his good friend, collaborator and former manager Jay Reatard, Modern Problems is an exercise in raw beauty, tender grieving and finding a way to move on. Recorded entirely on tape in his bedroom and usually in one or two takes as the Arizona native/Nebraska transplant Foree is want to do; the purity of sound in such an intimate setting permeates each song with a soulful immediacy often missing from the perfectly edited digital recordings in today's studios. Like your favorite scratchy record, Digital Leather's allure lies in the vintage-sounding keyboards and buzzy guitar as well as Foree's charmingly lonesome vocals. Passionately catchy beats and synthy punk-flavored hooks give ample levity to the weighty, personal lyricism of Modern Problems. Like I said, the LP comes out February 14th 2012 on FDH Records. Fittingly, as what is a valentine if not a poignant labor of rock n'roll love such as this?
Unlike with other ModPunkBands the songs here on ""This Is Now"" sounds dirtier and revive the zeitgeist of the rebellious 60´s. The trio also appear optically more like a left-leaning mob.
Nevertheless distinguished as a well organized and disciplined disposition, where Beat and Punk entering a smart liaison. Inspired in tongue and style entirely by early The Clash (especially by Army Of Dogs) and otherwise
renounce to any experiments and turning more to traditional Bepop: means in the rhytm, socially committed and striking the clenchend fist of one hand. Change is only possible if there is anything you can believe.
Therefore the trio approach the thing quite relaxed, believe in themself and is strong in principle and character.
Trabajo debut de esta banda dis formada por un único componente, Tonyo Becerra, más conocido por ser el batería de los míticos Violent headache y otras mil bandas...dis y más dis es lo que vas a encontrar aquí, la portada ya prevee lo que vas a escuchar, la portada es una foto de todo de discos de míticas bandas d-beat punk del Estado y de todo el Mundo. 100% dischargero, letras cortas y sin pelos en la lengua...nada de tecnicismos y demás mierdas! auténtico PUNK!!
Finally, here is the long awaited Volume 3 of the Dukes of Hamburg Beat Beat Beat 10“ vinyl series!
Like its predecessors, the sleeve is a color variation of the Baccarola low budget beat LP series that was originally released in Germany in the mid 60’s.
Following the footsteps of the „Beat Mixers“ from Cologne, the „Candidates“ from Düsseldorf, the „Boomerangs“ and the „Lonelys“ from Wuppertal, the Dukes Of Hamburg carry on the German-Beat-Band tradition and interpret crazy beat tracks originally recorded in the 60´s. Volume 3 contains ten beat classics from international celebrities such as „The Easybeats“,„The Rattles“ , „The Rolling Stones“, „The Lords“ and „The Kinks“.
Once again, a wonderful double-sided full color inlay sheet with liner notes, plenty of information about the original performers, pictures of the original vinyl releases from the 60's and a high gloss band photo of the Dukes of Hamburg is included.
As an absolute highlight, „Beat Beat Beat Volume 3"" comes with a deluxe glossy slipcase that functions as the cover for all three volumes of the Beat Beat Beat series. The slipcase is a true to original copy of the super rare red Ariola 12“ album by „Mike Rat & the Runaways“ of the Liverpool Beat series. And features a photo of the Dukes of Hamburg in the same pose as the „Pretty Things"" on their first album.
Like the two other 10“ vinyl releases of this series be fast because as the predecessors this release will be sold out very soon and become a much sought after collector's item.
Earthmen and Strangers - self titled LP - I love when bands bridge the gap between punk and indie without losing or getting lost in any of the above genre's charm. These Arizona boys come off as a lost treasure on flying nun records whilst taking in some of its neighbor's (RADIO BIRDMAN and the SCIENTISTS) hook-driven pull. I'd almost put my imaginary house on it these boys rock the CLEAN and the VERLAINES every second day whilst blasting the WIPERS in between. Not a single duffer; every track becoming an instant new fad, sounding old in the warmest sort of way, a beautiful tonic to the worst Monday bluesI've ever had. Now I'm off to spread the word: We have found this year's best record."" -MRR
Ryan Rousseau saw that Tokyo Electron was about to become a much less active band and started a new project. He recorded a handful of demo tracks and started to put together a new band. Well here is the result. 10 tracks recorded with his new band recorded and mixed at Cardiac Studio. This first offical output from the band will be limited to 500 copies (as a first press at least)
I can almost remember the day that Rep sent me the first issue of this LP. Taking it out of the package I glommed the title, looked at who was participating and snorted appreciatively. Ego Summit – perfect! Don Howland, Jim Shepard, Ron House, Tommy Jay and Michael Hummel were all guys whose impact on the world of music (as it is known) was questionable, but all of them were well-known at the sub-underground level, and it was damn certain they all felt like kings! Between them they had created sounds and records that were legendary and influential, but the fact that they were all bums dedicated to living in Columbus, Ohio made the reality of their impact something that was hard to appreciate if you lived further away than Dayton (home of GBV). But as the years peeled away, oddball record collectors (and perhaps, even, the women who love them) have come to appreciate the insane form-moves this cabal of record collectors was up to. By the time of this release, they’d been putting out records for years, with bands as diverse as Gibson Bros, Bassholes, Vertical Slit, V-3, Great Plains, Mike Rep & the Quota, True Believers (OH), and in various solo incarnations of one form or another. Each had evolved a dinstinctive sound, redolent of every goddamn record he’d ever heard – from Ramblin’ Thomas to the Twinkeyz to Armand Schaubroeck Steals to Destroy All Monsters, and they were ready to roll it all out. Ego Summit functions like a download of everything they’ve ever really loved, from the VU’s Live ’69 to Quicksilver’s cover of Buffy Ste. Marie’s “Codine”, all piled up in a beautifully loose garage band jumble. I’m never sure whether my fave track is Ron House’s “Rise Sherry” (with its lazy approximation of the original Contortions’ slide guitar/bass dualism), Jim Shepard’s abosultely blown talling-blues, “We Got It All” (the best experiment in the form since the Minutemen’s “History Lesson Part Two”), or Don Howland’s “Wife Blues” (a track that makes every motion by Spencer’s Blues Explosion extraneous), but the whole goddamn thing is great. A totally superior listen, by a bunch of clowns who were their own best fans. And knew why. Now you do too. --Byron Coley
Like trashcans hurled through plate-glass windows, the Ends' growling, old-school punk campaign is a cathartic gesture borne of seething desperation. To that end, "Pucker Up" jumpstarts the local quintet's second album with firecracker élan. The band's grimy twin guitar rabble is augmented with carnival-style piano and horns, while vocalist Ian End's raspy, Stiv Bators-baiting exhortations add back-alley excitement. Following up on such a grand, thoughtfully arranged stinkbomb of purpose is tough work, but "Workin' on Some Feelin'" manages to stumble toward tallboy salvation on the strength of an odd time signature. The closest thing to a love song is "Nice Quiet You," in which the Ends pay homage to bottled up emotions. Ribaldry quashes sentiment on "Animal," a sex bomb uniting class of '77 and Estrus-inspired garage punk impulses in the raising of an aural shrine to raw biology in action. Formed from the detritus of Austin's recent punk past, the Ends whip out a free-fire cover of the Chumps' "Sleazy" in honor of the Blue Flamingo. Concrete Disappointment crumbles to a close with the four-minute "Same Old Solutions," a near-anthem compared to its two-minute brethren. In spite of their well-trod scope, the Ends carry the torch with a gut-level swagger that can't be faked.
BEWARE! The EPIDEMICS is spreading! What you hold in your hands is the debut album of EPIDEMICS, ex DISCONVENIENCE, from Umea / Sweden. Great super catchy Punkrock with female Vocals!! “Waking up the dead” was recorded in January 2008 at Tonteknik Studios (where among others REFUSED recorded their “The shape of punk to come” album) and produced by Inge Johansson from The (international) NOISE CONSPIRACY. EPIDEMICS' take on punk rock is an explosive mix of the energy you will find in a crowded, sweaty, loud hardcore show in someone’s basement and that perfect pop song that you fell in love with the first time you heard it. “Waking up the dead” is a true story about social change, urban angst, electric shock therapy, zombies, pollution and warfare. This is passionate punk that will fill the dance floor, make your ear drums bleed and leave you wanting more more more!!!
Like a snotty bottle rocket shot out of The Damned’s dressing room and straight into the gut of Cheap Trick, suburban Chicago's sorely under appreciated teen punk pioneers, EPICYCLE, were left out by most modern historical accounts of Midwest underground music of the time, which is such a shame. We here at HoZac first contacted the band about 10 years ago when researching our Trunk City Punk: Chicago Underground 1976-81 feature article for Horizontal Action Magazine, so it was only natural as we evoled into a record label that we needed to rescue these tracks from the cracks of history. With this compilation LP, we present to you the original punch this band was trying to deliver with their three incredible singles, and tracks from their sole LP, along with some pre-razored demos from their earliest sessions, when they were angry, young, and unstoppable. Although the band were ambitious enough to do everything themselves (back when that didn't need an annoying acronym), they went above and beyond and even started their own record label, Circkle, and released three singles, an LP, and a handful of singles for other bands, all within a span of a few years, yet it just wasn't enough, despite some key local supporters in the rock'n roll underground. One of their earliest and most enthusiastic champions was none other than Subterranean Pop fanzine editor, and future Sub Pop Records co-founder, Bruce Pavitt, before he left the Midwest for Evergreen University. It was clear that Pavitt was attempting to become the band manager and he had even laid out a multi-point system of attack for the band, luckily of which the original handwritten copy still exists! Another notable band released on the Circkle label was Identity Crisis, who featured a teenage Kim Thayil (along with Pavitt’s brother, John) before he followed Bruce out to Seattle and started Soundgarden a few years later, by default, tying EPICYCLE into the fabric of the primitive beginnings of Sub Pop in it's original Midwest manifestation. As one of only a handful of Chicago punk/new wave bands with an actual record out in the late 1970s, EPICYCLE hit the scene hard and could be found not only gigging around the usual local punk spots such as Tut's, O'Banion's, Gaspar's, Lucky #, and Space Place, but also at Winnetka all-ages shows, and northwest suburban Glencoe teen dance halls just as well. Their raw-edged pop cut a fine line between the emerging punk and powerpop worlds, and compared with regional bands such as Shoes, Pezband, The Names and many others in the shadow of post- "Surrender" Cheap Trick, they were far younger and more aggressive, yet still just as talented and refined when it was in order. But for all intents and purposes, this is the sound of pure teen punk with a knack for hooks and harmonies, and is just as essential of a document of Chicago’s underground sound of the late 1970s as any of the more well-known usual suspects, who are more than likely the subjects of their classic song, “Hardcore Punk.”
Fuck the Ergs! Splitting up like that. They weren't ready to go. They left us with one classic long player, one hit and miss follow up, and a hodge podge of other bits and pieces. For such an awesome band, they were woefully inconsistent. Which is rather peculiar. This departing three tracker hints at what might have been. ""Anthem for A New Armada"" is a grown up pop punker. With wurlitzer (?), and typically Ergsian lyrics and Descendents-esque riffs / bass, it hits all the right spots and makes one somewhat misty eyed. It barely even comes to an end before they've started on ""...and the true believers"". Both of these songs would have been more than at home on their epic ""Dork Rock Cork Rod"" LP, which gives you some indicator as to their goodness. Wistful pop music of the very best kind. Things draw to a conclusion on Piltdown Man, who I believe is a fake caveman or something. Sadly, this song is not really that good, maybe because not the awesome vocalist sings. Oh well. The other two songs are shit hot at least.
Goodbye to the Ergs! Failures the world over will miss you very much.
This is the self-titled debut album by former EIRE APPARENT member ERNIE GRAHAM that was originally released in 1971. Backed by NICK LOWE and BRINSLEY SCHARZ, this is an underground roots rock classic that sounds like it could have been a last album by The Band in their prime. Opening with the beautiful Dylan-esque folk number “Sebastian,” the album kicks into gear on tracks like “So Lonely” and “Don’t Want Me Around,” and ends with the song “Belfast,” which takes us home to Ernie’s roots in Ireland. All Music’s Bruce Elder has called this record “...one of the great albums (and perhaps the greatest unknown album) of the 1970s.” In 180-gram vinyl.
Por segunda ocasión LVEUM prensa en plástico una autoedición de estos punks afincados en Barcelona. Estos tíos no se han pasado al tecno pop, así que aquí tienes otra dosis de actitud punk que en lo musical va en la línea de Larsen, KGB y el sonido '83 del Punk qué Punk. Edición de 500 copias, carpeta doble.
MUS51 ESCROTO DE RATA - Punk Rock Sex Basura LP ESCROTO DE RATA are in our humble opinion Barcelona's best kept secret.
Their iconoclastic punk brings to mind bands like KGB, TNT or LARSEN. They have the most inspiring nihilistic lyrics we have come across in a long time and their art and approach to their existence is raw and even filthy.ESCROTO DE RATA play punk of the brand that punk bands used to play it before it became formulaic and sterile. Crunchy and under-produced yet catchy and timeless. They would fit perfectly in DRO's 1983 PUNK QUE PUNK? Compilation or in BLOODSTAINS ACROSS SPAIN.
‘Punk Rock Sex Basura’ is a repress of their second full length CD-R from 2008. LVEUM will also release their 3rd one after the summer and some new tracks before the end of the
Documento histórico que atestigua la crudeza de unos años 80s que corrían salvajes en la Inca (Mallorca) más católica, conservadora y caciquil. Estas grabaciones de 1986 y 1987 constituyen la piedra angular que, junto a Cerebros Exprimidos, conformaron la banda sonora de una generación alejada de grandes escenas.
El punk ochentero de Eskoria bebe de la segunda ola británica con grupos como Partisans o One Way System y de la movida en Euskadi de RIP o Eskorbuto, unido a la fuerza que otorga el ser los primeros en llegar a su ciudad. Las dos maquetas que hoy recupera Metadona, en un doble Lp con portada Gatefold, no deberían pasar desapercibidas por quien se identifique con el punk más salvaje, urgente y crudo parido en este maldito país. Especialmente si creías conocerlo todo del Punk Iberico, te sorprenderá la honestidad de unos punkarras que, a pesar de vivir demasiado deprisa, tuvieron la oportunidad de dejarnos su testimonio. Eskoria y las afiladas historias que cuentan sus canciones fueron (y son) una realidad como un puño, por más que algunos en este vertedero llamado Mallorca pretendan ignorar.
Recopilatorio de toda su discografia en estudio. Los temas de su single "Recomendado para molestar a los vecinos", los dos temas del "punk que? punk" y su maxisingle. Espasmodicos fueron la primera banda protohardcore de Madrid influida musicalmente por Dead Kennedys. Se reedita para Beat Generation en una tirada de 500 copias.
Formed in Portland, OR back in the summer of ‘06 by Mark Herman (vocals, guitar), Derek Willman (bass) and Keith Testerman (drums). After playing a handful of shows that summer/fall in their home of the pacific northwest they recorded their first session at the type foundry studios Portland. Resulting in 3 singles (self titled, sacred decay, entranced) along with a split 7” with Autistic Youth and a compilation track for a 7” in 2007. The session would later be issued on full length as the “Type Foundry Session 1” release (released in the u.s. by Dirtnap and Black Water records and in Japan by HG:Fact). Following this session they would release their debut LP "Static Thoughts" in 2008 on Dirtnap records in the U.S. and Sabotage in Europe. Supporting this release with a handful of tours including a full U.S. tour with friends, The Red Dons and a west coast tour with Spectres from Vancouver among others… Following these tours they would embark in a darker direction than the previous releases with their 2010 release titled "The Subliminal Man" (inspired by the story by J.G. Ballard). The songs took on a deeper and more complex sound incorporating more synths and experimental textures and sounds. In the summer of 2011 they made a 5 week tour of Europe in support of "The Subliminal Man". After their return from Europe they would begin writing/demoing more songs this time taking more time than in the past to create a more specific sound. The songs written during this 3 year period would be their best to date and would be appearing on their new Self-Titled album to be released in January 2014 by Dirtnap records and Sabotage Records. The Influences on their newest album ranging from the Echo & the Bunnymen/The Only Ones/These Immortal Souls to The Troggs/The Creation. Lyrically, on this new album The Estranged have more of an enduring angst ridden approach. Testifying to an account much more personal than in the past. Musically, they experiment with even more instruments/sounds, e.g., the use of a bow on guitar, feedback loops, piano, farfisa, backwards guitar, female back-up vocals, etc. As a result showing the bands continued maturity in their song writing and in the recording process..
This is a collection of THE ESTRANGED's 1st recording sessions at Type Foundry Studios in Portland. The LP contains 8 songs, all released as 7" tracks ("s/t", "sacred decay", "entranced", "pdx" compilation and split 7" with AUTISTIC YOUTH). Most of which are now out-of-print showcase the band's distinct style of omnimous, dark punk at their rawest and most urgent.
The anxiously awaited follow up to the Estrogen Highs excellent self-released 2011 album "Friends and Relatives" is finally here and let us be the first to say that if you aren’t already a fan of these guys, you are about to become one. After two LP's, one 12" EP, four 7-inches, and one cassette, the project that started as Stefan Christensen in 2007 playing and recording everything by himself has now fully jelled into a rock-solid, full-band quartet.
Nueva edicion del sello VPR, 500 copias de la banda THE EXPELLED, 100 en negro y 400 a color, ademas de un fanzine de 8 pag. con fotos y la historia de la banda.
Todos sus singles y la demo, ademas de un maxi que no llego a ser editado en su dia.
17 trallazos de buen punk cantado por una chica.
El sello Luso ya le había editado un single a estos mexicanos, que tras su paso por el sello de los Cynics, ven ultimado su nuevo lp para Groovie Records, grabado en tres días bajo la supervisión de Nick Nicotine en los King Studios de Barreiro. De nuevo Jorge Alderete viste por fuera el lp de cuyos surcos mana garage punk a destajo, con deuda de por vida a Kinks y Sonics. El pedal del fuzz reventado a pisotones y diez temas conjugados con versiones, que además del guiño a los hermanos Roslie, se codean con los Troggs en ese “Tu amor”. Recuperan a unos compatriotas suyos que ya encendieron mecha a mediados de los 60’s en México, hablamos de los Dugs Dugs y que estos jóvenes versionan en su “Smog” acercándose a las maneras de los Flamin’ Sideburns. Pero, puestos a elegir, me quedo con esa versión del “Perro negro” de los Three Souls in my Mind otra banda mejicana de los 70’s que los Explosivos resucitan de manera espectacular. Los temas propios como “Quiero más” que pueden perfectamente codearse con los más que recomendables Staggers. Y llegando a “No hay vuelta” nos empapamos con sonidos de alucinantes guitarras y ecos psicóticos, lo mismo que en “Gris” que son la confirmación fehaciente de que estos chicos han vendido su alma al diablo, esa alma que, aunque nos pese en muchas ocasiones, habita en el garaje que cada uno de nosotros tiene en el subconsciente.

Great HC-Punk from Poland with female vocals
Vinyl version new album this great polish hardcore punk band with female vocal. Great stuff!!!!
Formed in 1978 in London, The Fab Mods released their first LP in 1979, and were part of the New Wave Punk explosion in England with The Jam, The Clash , Stiff Little Fingers, The Members. One year later, please cut the crap!
That's a big lie. In fact the Fab Mods are from Paris (France). The Band has just released its first vinyl LP in 2011: 14 tracks in the pure English Punk Rock style from the late 70's. Real songs with real melodies to be sang together or in the shower. Only if you take short showers (no longer than 3 min.).
The four-piece band is quite famous for its explosive and full of energy live performances. They have been touring for more than a year in Paris and other parts of France with bands such as The Members, The Kits, The Last Killers, La Souris Déglinguée""
The Fab Mods wear the fingers and voices out to offer what Rock should be: strong structures, catchy rhythmics and implacable melodies.
But sometimes music is better than a thousand words, so listen to their music and sing their songs !
The Fab Mods are: Laurent (lead singer), Yann (Guitars), RXC (Bass) and Yano (Drums). "
Nuevo trabajo, cuarto de su carrera de este trío chileno afincado en Barcelona con un amplio bagaje a sus espaldas.
Diez temas de enérgico y atronante post rock, delirantes ritmos de batería en armonía con envolventes riffs de guitarra que aislan tu mente, el bajo completa una perfecta sección rítmica.
Vinilazo de 12"" con amplio protagonismo de los intrumentos sobre las partes vocales.
"Aaaarrgggh! Raging Madness strikes with this ferocious demo. New hot young band from the L.A. area who scorch out the speed and extreme rawness in the vein of ICONOCLAST and early FINAL WARNING. Intense lyrics with a boisterous shouter, backed by thrashing metallic grinds melting into overdrive. This grabs for the blast"" -- Pushead - 1985
Before ""ashes to ashes"" was this amazing demo that is put to vinyl for the first time in a gatefold cover mastered by enormous door.
THE FINDERS continued the power pop path set by their previous incarnation, the Rockers. After solidifying a new line-up consisting of John “Rock” Perga, Phil Schraub, Bryan Allinsmith and John San Filippo, the band began working on a series of demos before entering the studio to record their first single featuring “It’s So Insane” and “Which Way.”
The band created a theatrical stage show which included John puking into a toilet during their song “Bad Food,” the B-Side of their second single. The A-Side was a track called “Calling Dr. Howard,” which paid homage to the Three Stooges. When Moe Howard’s daughter saw the cover of the picture sleeve which illustrated John throwing up beside a poster of the Three Stooges, she had a cease and desist letter sent out which forced the band to change the cover image. Nonetheless, the song became a popular local radio hit and they even made a music video for it that saw rotation on MTV.
The Finders later added a second guitar player named Mark Newcomb and went in the studio to record a full length album with former Move manager Tony Secunda producing. After completion, they found their label had gone belly up and things spiralled downhill from there with the band ultimately splitting up in the summer of 1983.
The tapes from their last recording session sat in the Mobius Studios vault for over 20 years before Phil and Dennis rescued them. Now for the first time ever on vinyl, Cheap Rewards Records is honored to deliver the best recordings from those session along with quality studio and demo material in one great package.
We don't care if pets make better people, all we know is that the MODERN PETS make better Punkrock. The striped and straying trashcan canines retrieve 12 yummy bones here on this first full-length. They shit in society's milk and piss on the hipster parade, while their foamy snouts spew out snotty and biting pieces of poppy '77 Punk of the English pedigree.
The opener ''Affected people'' or ''Crown of creation'' and the doggone melodic ''Five finger discount'' will make all Vanilloccino-sipping careerists walk with their tails between their remote-controlled legs during their daily routine in their plastic toy world before the DEVOesque ''Asphalt Cowboy Syndrome'' or ''Hellmo'' will make them dance like the hype-following zombies that they are. Afterwards, it's time for them to go back to the sweat-shop treadmill and home again to wifey and the kids in ''The Modern Pet''. The four PETS also share with us some sick fantasies in ''Dead and smelly'', take us on a non-stop ride to three-cord wonderland in ''Endorphins'', spit on postcard punks in ''Punk+0 = 0'' and finally transmit the rabies with ''The last Nano-Second of the Universe'' which really makes you want you to tear all this ''apolitical'', nazional piranha scum in hamster clothing to shreds while the fast ''Pascal Gaspard Asshole Youth'' is blaring from the speakers.
A record like a bag of Frolic: Smelly, tasty and with that extra bit of content for all you hungry Punkrock puppies out there! MODERN PETS are quickly becoming part of every power-pop-punk lovers essential collection!
Foreign Objects blast through eight songs of upbeat punk, somewhere between Dangerhouse, '77 pogo, riot grrl and early post-punk. They get compared to Wire and Bikini Kill a lot, I hear more Electric Deads and X.
8 songs on 45rpm. All copies on black vinyl with printed inner sleeve, full color cover and art by Meghan Minior.
Unseen/Casualties fans listen up! The Forgotten are here to claim their spot on the pedestal with their own style of fist-to-the-face punk rock! Featuring members of Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards, and The Transplants, THE FORGOTTEN are poised to conquer the world!
Life has few certainties. Everything seems to change, usually for the worse. Death is inevitable, though when it will come can rarely be predicted. Amidst all the flux here is a certainty: Framtid plays ripping d-beat raw punk, and they will never change. At the same time as their new album is released, the first in over a decade, 540 Records presents a vinyl collection of their four early demo cassettes. Most remarkable is how consistent Framtid’s vision has been, since first set down on a rehearsal tape in 1997. There is no chaff, nothing extraneous: just short, sharp bursts of feedback, noise, distortion, pummeling drums, and memorable råpunk riffs. This LP’s release accompanied their first visit to the United States, some years after border authorities had halted a previously planned one. What many suspected then became clear in 2013: Framtid is the most powerful live hardcore band on the planet, playing with ferocity unmatched by their peers (particularly drummer Takayama, who it seems barely survives the all-out effort he gives). After first seeing them in Japan a friend remarked to me that the sensory experience was like living through trench warfare. Perhaps outsiders will never grasp how fans of a deeply anti-war outfit, whose lyrics barely stray from that single message, can crave such an experience. But for the initiated, it makes perfect sense. At last, the initiated legion (and others!) can easily obtain the band’s crucial cassettes. The versions on this record, none ever before on vinyl, also include some songs that appear nowhere else. The band’s third demo, in particular, was produced in a micro-edition. This LP’s packaging is lavish, with a gatefold cover and a booklet of extremely difficult-to-find flyers, photos, and other material. -- Stuart Schrader.
Primer larga duración de Fresh Trash, la banda antes conocida como Vicious Circle. El disco incluye cupón de descarga en MP3 con un tema extra como Bonus Track.
Front started in 2003 as a cover band devoted to early german punk bands like Male, Abwärts or S.Y.P.H. Soon they wrote some songs of their own and I am glad they did. They really managed to transpose the vibe of pre-deutschpunk german punk into today’s pitch. With a mix of Mittagspause and Trend they play songs that simply kick ass as fuck.
Their lyrics are awesome and totally authentic early 80s style just that they sing about up to date topics like this fucking new patriotism in germany, cctv and media bullshit. In a way it is so ironic that they complain about retro chic in “hier liegt ein irrtum vor” while they themselves sound like were casted directly from the bar at Ratinger Hof in 1979. Each song on this thing is a total hit and if they split up before I got to see them live and do massive fingerpointing to all these killer choruses I’m gonna be fucking angry. If you are into punk before 1984 at least the slightest bit you must love this.
Before The ZEBRASSIERES started to create their soundtrack for a lost generation, alpha zebra Andrew and black and white operatress Sarah were already punkin' and poppin' out with the FUNFUNS.
Pat Kearns, who already recorded the EXPLODING HEARTS, CLOROX GIRLS, RED DONS and REVISIONS recorded these 7 songs and sure wouldn't have been any fun fun if they had never gotten their groove tickled by your needle. Scheduled for launching on Going Gaga, it somehow never happened and they got stuck in the crevasse of oblivion.
Until now: The P.Trashcue Team recovered them and packed them in a silkscreened emergency blanket in a damn tiny edition of only 300 one-sided copies. The FUNFUNS were definitely less New Wave and more poppy Punk than the ZEBRASSIERS. Still, songs like ''My head'', ''Wait forever'' or ''Everybody likes you (I don't)'' also add a dash of organ, but everything is way more on the straight and catchy RAMONES-influenced Punk side, the sound you know and love from STEVE ADAMYK and the whole bunch of Canadians.
Ya disponible en rigurosa edición limitada en vinilo negro de 12"" de estas dos bandas zaragozanas LOS TURBIOS y LOS FURIOSOS con 6 temas por cada cara .Grandes temas mezcla de power pop,garage y mod hechos con mucho cariño.
Estos tres tristes tigres y una pussy cat se llaman Los Turbios. Son una banda de garage stardard de Zaragoza, formada por batería, bajo, guitarra-voz y unos toques de performance- show.
De dónde vienen y a dónde van es lo de menos, lo importante es que están empapados de la música underground mas garaje y psicodélica, de los 60, y 70, desenfadada, hilarante, divertida, o simplemente dispersa, sea del estilo que sea aunque dándole el sonido analógico y valvulero y un buen groove ritmico que les caracteriza.
Prefieren utilizar el castellano como lengua vocal, aunque las letras no están cerradas ya que suelen hacer ciertos guiños a la improvisación, buceando entre sonidos saturados, naturales analógicos y jugos de Wah. Interpretan canciones propias, y alguna versión de grupos como The Stooges, Los Salvajes, Los Flechazos, Los Furtivos, Flaming Groovies, etc…
La idea de Los Furiosos surgio de Francho Furioso(cantante y guitarra de Shepherd's Bush y Sam Peckinpah's Order tambien de los Soul Brothers). era reunir amigos y grabar un disco, Con los temas compuestos cada cancion la toca una formacion diferente, por eso hay tantos musicos, la grabacion se realizo en un dia y entramos a grabar 10 personas, se grabaron 10 temas aunque en el disco solo aparecen 6.
Here is the long awaited 2nd album from London´s The Gaggers!
The Gaggers were formed in 2009 by Terminal Gagger on lead vocals and bass (The Botox Rats, Shanghai Wires, Disco Lepers) and Dagger Gagger on guitar and vocals (The Blow-Outs, The Seminals, The Hateful) with Busy Signal on drums.
Snotty, nasty and urgent as ever. Razor sharp punk rock that will damage your head!
This is one of those records you won’t know how you’ve lived without, and you probably have no idea how bad you need it. A pristine, timeless pop album with all the subtleties and effervescence of those misty classics of the Pre-Punk Powerpop era, constructed and rebuilt into an airtight, flawless specimen of the original form. Not that you’d expect any less from the purveyor behind Sing Sing Records, but Jeremy Thompson has been honing this sound for years now, previously in the frantically jagged Busy Signals and the early incarnation of the Carbonas, along with longtime cohort Dave Rahn, whose production of the debut GAMES LP is nothing short of breathtaking. Taking the same cues as The Raspberries, Big Star, Rockin’ Horse, Shoes, and Milk ‘N Cookies did well before the codification of New Wave, GAMES is a crystal-clear shot in the arm to the current state of rock’n roll, a genuine reflection, an instant hit, and something for New Yorkers to be proud of.
Along with such an compelling collection of original songs comes something you don’t see as often as you used to, a couple of great covers that get your gears turning, digging in to check out the origins, a la the mid-90s punk explosion when every new record left a trail of breadcrumbs to discovering your next obscure 70s overlooked obsession. This is important, and all bands need to rethink this stance, not to mention sharing your bounty of knowledge on the rest of us, always starving for MORE. GAMES serves up two here, from Apostrophe and Sage, both with new life breathed into each, and both done up so well, so streamlined, they fit in perfectly with the sound GAMES is here to play, which means we all win. – Victimoftime.com

REISSUE.Reissue of legendary 1980 album from the final days of the original Los Angeles punk rock explosion of '77-'80. Simple, melodic and urgent rock 'n roll with the slightest rockabilly and surf influence! Also includes their ultra-rare three-track EP from 1979. New, improved punk rock cover art!
No Other is an absolutely incredible record, and the album that GENE CLARK himself thought of as his masterpiece. Despite being a critical and commercial failure at the time of its release in 1974, the years have been kind to No Other and it is now thought of as a classic solo album from one of the founding members of the BYRDS. Written in the quiet sobriety of his Mendocino family home, yet recorded in the cocaine excess of Hollywood, No Other is a perfect blending of those two poles. A stunning and important folk-rock record. Comes with a reproduction of the original poster insert.
ZACK! The second album by one of Montreal's finest weirdos GENITAL HOSPITAL takes no prisoners. You get even 10 catchy forceful & rousing KBD-garage-punk tunes being mired in psychedelic intoxication. A bit like CARBONAS cover MODERN PETS or way around including gang-vocals, great busy riffs, thirsty pogo beat and sprinkles of CPC GANGBANGS and The B-SIDES.
Again a few tracks have a slightly southern touch owing to harmonica fills while others get driven by a simple but relentless organ vibe and cocksure all tracks kick ass – ""Verdammte Sheisse"". The whole damn thing is an all in all unique sounded smasher to burst any party - a really total boozy mess!
Recorded & mixed by Jean-Michel Coutu, mastered by Ian of DAGGER EYES & perfectly illustrated by Darren Merinuk – a killer cover for ""Street Mummy"", one he says may be his best ever!!
Since Jesse’s first album came out in the summer of 2008, he’s had plenty of excuses to put the “Gentleman” part of his act to bed. In fact, the Mr. Nice Guy routine landed him in bed for a month after being mugged and beaten with a table leg while he was trying to help two strangers change a tire. When the economy shit the bed, violent crime in Atlanta hit home in a big way and really made the city a dreary place to live for a while. In addition, several tragedies strongly affected the Atlanta music scene and the DMR family. It was a bad time and Jesse took it very personally. He seemed close to throwing in the towel and retiring to a dark room with cheap beer and You Tube videos. To cope with the reality of living in a place that seemed to be going straight to hell, Jesse went down to the basement of his house and wrote twenty songs that would become Leaving Atlanta. What could have easily become a bummer record ended up being nothing short of inspiring. The record kicks off with “Eat Me Alive”, an anthem of perseverance that Jesse undoubtedly used as a demon-exercising tool. The album is bookended by another mover titled “We Got To Get Out of Here,” a song that turns out to be less about getting out of an actual location and more about getting out of a state of mind that makes you afraid of it. Stylistically, Jesse never strays from his bread and butter, which is short, hook driven, and delicately patterned rock n roll songs. We could compare him to Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, or Paul Collins till the cows come home but at this point in his career, Gentleman Jesse sounds like Gentleman Jesse. Leaving Atlanta is Jesse hitting his personal and musical stride.
Debut studio album by American punk rock musician GG Allin, recorded and released in 1980 on Orange Records.
Seattle's THE GIRLS play brisk, well-constructed synth-punk that splits the difference between the hookiness of British new wave, the slick professionalism of the Cars, and the weirder strains of synth-punk. Ten tracks of twitchy, keyboard driven poppy post punk.

GLAXO BABIES are the greatest UK post-punk band you've never heard. Formed in Bristol in late 1977 and named after the British pharmaceutical giant who allegedly inoculated thousands with a toxic vaccine, the original lineup included Rob Chapman (vocals), Dan Catsis (guitar), Tom Nichols (bass), and Geoff Alsopp (drums). The band's pioneering mix of metallic guitar, dubbed-out rhythms and shamanistic chants found its way into the bloodlines of generations on both sides of the pond. Naturally, GLAXO members later joined THE POP GROUP and MAXIMUM JOY.
Originally released on Heartbeat Records in 1980, Put Me On The Guest List collects the band's propulsive demos, mostly performed live in the studio with no overdubs and not originally intended for release. ""This Is Your Life"" is a veritable classic, with Chapman's angst-ridden lyrics soaring low as the band rides tense, sinuous grooves. The skittish ""Police State"" stands toe-to-toe with the art-punk flag-bearers in the North (GANG OF FOUR, MEKONS) and in London (WIRE, THE HOMOSEXUALS). ""Stay Awake"" is a vitriolic screed as powerful as anything from the newly formed PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED. By the time England's post-punk scene was in full bloom, dominating the pop charts in the UK and college radio in the US, GLAXO BABIES had unfortunately dissolved.
Released domestically for the first time ever, the album is available on vinyl and CD with liner notes by Chapman. The CD version contains 3 bonus songs including the rare ""Christine Keeler"" single.
After the abrupt departure of singer Rob Chapman, Bristol's GLAXO BABIES moved into more improvised and electronic-based territory. Their early demos (as compiled on Put Me On The Guest List, also available from Superior Viaduct) only hinted at such exotic sounds. Other bands from Manchester and New York were spiking post-punk with dance beats, yet GLAXO BABIES were brimming with fun and spontaneity, spearheading England's death disco movement in the process.
Reportedly recorded in a single day, Nine Months To The Disco originally appeared on Heartbeat Records in 1980. GLAXO BABIES' sole proper album veers between wiry electro à la LIQUID LIQUID (""Free Dem Cells""), piano-based free jazz burners (""Seven Days""), and progressive post-Krautrock jams that would make even THIS HEAT blush, culminating in the mutant funk masterpiece ""Shake (The Foundations)"" (which was regularly covered by THE POP GROUP in their live set). Nine Months To The Disco is a monster statement, equal parts ballroom bangers and dancefloor clearers.
Released domestically for the first time ever, the album is available on vinyl and CD with liner notes by THE POP GROUP founder Mark Stewart and band members Dan Catsis and Charlie Llewellin.
Based in Denmark and featuring members of Cola Freaks, Bliglad and Snow Kite, Glow Kit blasts thru a mix of Power Pop and Garage Punk with a touch of psych guitars that will have fans of LOVER!, The Manikins, and Carbones fans strip off their protective gear and dance in spasms in a lethal mushroom cloud. This debut LP follows up a 7” on P.trash records from Germany. This North American release is limited to 200 copies on reverse stock covers (The German release on P.Trash will have standard covers). This LP will find its way into the New Testament of the Garagepunk-Bible”
RE-ISSUE OF THE LEGENDARY DEBUT GORILLAS ALBUM FROM 1978
FIRST TIME ON VINYL SINCE 1978 LP on RED VINYL! (Ltd to 1000 copies)
CD first time on digipak!
The Gorillas livened up the mid-70s rock scene like few others. They were the missing link between Hendrix, glam and punk.
Interest in Jesse Hector and The Gorillas (originally The Hammersmith Gorillas) has grown steadily in recent years in no small part due to Caroline Catz' documentary film, A Message To The World, the Gorilla Got Me compilation on Big Beat Records and the recent Crushed Butler albums re-released on Last Years Youth Records. The band also featured heavily in Wired Up!, last years' excellent book of proto-punk and glam record sleeves. Unavailable for some time, we're now re-issuing their debut album. On vinyl for the first time since 1978, our version features 3 BONUS TRACKS not featured on the original Raw Records release (""I'm Seventeen"" ""My Son's Alive"" and the classic single ""It's My Life"".)
REISSUE.Repress of this awesome release from 1985 plus 4 unreleased bonus tracks!

The band released four great and rare singles on the cult label Break'er Records between 1978-81. Some of these tracks appeared on various 'Killed by Death' and 'Hyped by Death' compilations during these last years. Their crude and weird music is a mix of influences that reminds The Gizmos, Residents and ... Frank Zappa! Absolutely non conventional sound! The album includes also many unreleased tracks.
All studio material!!! Be fast, buy it right now...this is a pure touch of genius!!
Ground Zero was more than a band; it was a group of outcast musicians and visual artists hailing from Ohio, Maine, West Virginia, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and places in between. In 1978, in the dirty bowels of Boston’s South End, this group of renegades rented some of the run-down and abandoned industrial loft spaces on Thayer Street and began an alternative art movement that would challenge the established art and music “culture” of the city. 24 Thayer St. (The Star Systems Loft) became the birthplace of Ground Zero, a group of musicians, film makers, photographers, xerographers, artists, and videographers who decided to join skills to produce an anarchic, movable musical and visual feast combining post-war angst, deconstructed 60s pop with Dada and existential influences. Ground Zero soon hosted all-night, illegal concert/events at the loft performing with alternative and punk groups from Boston and New York such as James White and the Contortions, Le Peste, Bound & Gagged, The Girls, Mission of Burma, Ragged Rite, and The Stains. Utilizing screens, projectors, TV monitors, and musical equipment, GZ provided a total immersive [close] experience. Combining video, film, photography, xerography, and music, they were one of the first punk/art groups to combine all of these diverse elements into their live performances and led the way in transforming the Boston art and music scene in the late 70s and early 80s. The musicians, Duane Huntington (Synths), Geoff Alderman (Bass and Lyricon), Mark Olin (Vocals), Steve Founds (Drums) and Michael Slygh (Guitar and Vocals), were the “live” embodiment of the imagery provided by Phil Hopper (Film), Sherry Edwards (Video and Graphics), and Marie Favorito (Photo and Lighting). The group recorded a 45 rpm, “Ground Zero”, in 1979 and a follow-up 33 rpm, 7” EP, “Born to be Bombed”, in 1980. A rarely seen, full length video/film project, entitled “Televoid”, was produced in 1980 and can still be found on YouTube. With the Cold War and Atomic Fever raging and Ronald Reagan kicking mental patients into the streets of Amerika for the sake of the wealthy, these children of the 50s and 60s screamed into the face of the unrelenting insanity. It wasn’t always pretty and some of us burned out all too quickly, but it was a sensational and always intense fight. The more things change, the more they stay the same... Half Life Lives! Rave Up records is now proud to produce the anthology of one of the best american underground bands ever: Ground Zero!
A full LP of never-before-heard Punk and Fanzine Rock 1978-1980!
From the same guys who brought you proto-punk legends O.Rex and '77 punk gawds the Afrika Korps!
Jay and Solomon Gruberger were born to play music. They formed the legendary proto-punk/living room band O.Rex in 1973, when younger brother Jay was a mere 12 years old. Future Gizmos’ lead singer Kenne Highland joined the band for sporadic jam sessions in the Gruberger's Brooklyn home. Beating most punks to the punch, O.Rex managed to release a three song maxi-single on their own Oral Records in late 1976. By that time, Kenne was a member of the Gizmos as well as a full time Marine! Within a few months, Kenne and the Grubergers would meet Kim Kane of the Slickee Boys, and it was this meeting of the minds that would form the Afrika Korps. They immediately set about recording what would become their monster, 22 song debut LP. Music To Kill By was released to great critical acclaim in late 1977, but the Grubergers would soon part ways with the rest of the Korps.
Those who stuck around would drop the Afrika and release a second album. Meanwhile, Solomon and Jay relocated from Brooklyn to Reading, PA and tried to form a new band. Having trouble finding a drummer but determined to keep things moving, in early 1978 they recorded an eight song EP under the name Spike. They took photos for the cover and even titled the EP ""90 Miles Per Hour"", but the record never made it to press. The Grubergers would continue to record at the same studio over the next couple years but nothing was released from those sessions. Jay would go on to work as a bass player for hire until his tragic death in 1993, and although Solomon continued to play for enjoyment, they never did play their own material for the public after moving to Reading.
It was during the production of Gulcher’s O.Rex double CD collection in 2009 that we learned of these recordings. We knew they shouldn’t remain unheard, so we collected the Spike EP and the other, unreleased studio sessions from 1978-1980 for an LP that hints at what a second Afrika Korps LP could have sounded like if the Grubergers had stuck around. Mastered from the original tapes, and we even got Kenne Highland (O. Rex, Gizmos, Afrika Korps, etc.) to give us his reactions to these recordings! Pressed in an edition of 500 copies on black vinyl, with full color cover and insert with liner notes.
12"" A-SIDED.„Strictly d.i.y., no sympathy fort the music industry“ prangt der Slogan auf dem Textblatt der neuen, einseitig bespielten Gumbabies 12“. Diese Einstellung ehrt die Münchener und wenn ich mir die Platte so ansehe und anhöre, kaufe ich ihnen diese Haltung auch voll und ganz ab.
Leider, leider habe ich den Eindruck, dass man mit dieser Einstellung immer mehr zu einem Schattendasein verdammt ist. Wer auf etwas leiseren Sohlen unterwegs ist und nicht jeden noch so cleveren Marketingkniff voll ausschöpft, dem wird nicht unbedingt die Aufmerksamkeit zu Teil, die man eigentlich verdient hat.
Wenn es gerecht zuginge, sollten die Gumbabies eigentlich schon Dank ihrer vorherigen Veröffentlichungen weit über die Grenzen der bayrischen Landeshauptstadt bekannt sein.
Bis auf die Nummer „In a nutshell“, die eher durchschnittlich ist, haben die 4 Songs auf „Love, piss & underpayment“ auf jeden Fall das Zeug zum Ohrwurm, wunderbar melodisch, zwischen 77er UK Punk und Glamrock. Große Klasse ist auch das Public Toys Cover „Safetyp pins on television“.
Auf 500 Stück limitiert und den Download Code gibt’s auch noch dazu.

We’ll admit, this finished album landed at our headquarters late last summer, but it just seemed unfair to release it in the Fall or Winter months, since this debut LP by the Happy Thoughts is such an incredibly classic-sounding “Summer album” in all aspects of the term. How do guitar riffs like these clear the clouds away so well, while embracing a pure freshness in such a familiar sense? You’ll feel like you’ve been listening to these songs your whole life. As clean and crisp as the early 60s-infused rock’n roll backbeat holding onto these songs for dear life, each track sticks right to your ribs, and with the addition of a full band, compared to the previous solo recordings, it’s a richness you didn’t even know you deserved. Purity, harmony, and true, unabridged happiness come bleeding through this collection of songs even more impressively than on the other bands Eric LaGrange has played a pivotal part in, namely, the excellence of the Cave Weddings and Romance Novels (the latter of which, chosen by Nobunny for support on his first US tour).
It’s got the boyish charm of The Bobby Fuller Four humming along ’64 Bang-era Neil Diamond hooks, in that same magical way Nobunny channels the ghost of Buddy Holly so well. Yet, The Happy Thoughts’ raw innocence is so irresistible, so untouched by this cruel world’s evil clutches, it’s like that first kiss, that first warm breeze of Summer, that first wave of excitement you get when you got your first taste of freedom. It’s so heartwarming in certain spots, that it’s almost intimidating to a point, where the sheer optimism and elation of being alive soaks up all the blackness stuck in the darkest corners of the human heart. A true Midwest, Summer classic that will win over even the most hardened souls and the perfect remedy for every level of depression known to man.

A 12” LP re-issue of arguably the best Thee Headcoats album. ON WHITE VINYL
Originally issued in 1990 on Billy’s own Hangman Records label.
12 tracks including bona fide Headcoats classics
‘All My Feelings Denied’ ‘Davey Crockett’ & ‘Cowboys Are Square’
This album also features the first ever recording by Thee Headcoatees ‘Meet Jacqueline’ which also ended up on their debut album ‘Girlsville’.
Thee Headcoats were formed from the ashes of Billy Childish’s previous combo ‘Thee Mighty Caesers’ in 1988 and released 20 albums and around 40 singles before they called it a day in 2000.
This is a re-design and re-issue their 1999 album with great new artwork, some extra tracks (CD only) and do it on vinyl for the first time ever! The album includes the singles Does Your Heart Go Boom, Long Live The UK Music Scene and Jump Up and Down It also features the late, great, Joey Ramone dueting with Helen on a great new version of their 1994 single Punk Boy.
Yep you guessed it Volume 3 of the Helen Love singles comps, this one features all their Che releases, 'Does Your Heart Go Boom', Long Live The UK Music Scene'.....plus an unreleased gem too.
Helen Love started life as a one off single around the Riot Grrl period in 1993, I had received a demo from Dave who was in Lovesick and it was great. It came out in late 93 and it sold pretty well but no press or anything followed, we decided to do another single which was 'Joey Ramoney', as soon as this was released we had a call from Everett True from the Melody Maker who wanted to do an interview. Mark Radcliffe started playing them on Radio 1 and it all started looking really good for the three girls from Swansea.
Wat Tyler had wanted to do a xmas single that year so I asked Helen Love to come up with a Xmas track, Happiest time of the year arrived in the post and was duly released (just after xmas I think). By early 94 they had finished there third proper single 'Punk Boy'. It got great reviews and led onto an 'On' piece in the NME. It was later covered by Ash on their Fierce Panda single. Around this time Joey Ramoney got in touch with the band saying how much he liked their stuff and inviting them to go over to the states to play at his club, very exciting times.
Their next release was a 10"" mini album 'Summer Pop, Punk Pop' with 6 tracks on it, this went straight in at No. 4 in the indie charts. A compilation of all their early singles was released soon after caller 'Radio Hits'. After that we did 4 more singles over the next two years and another singles compilation called Radio Hits 2 before they jumped ship and signed a worldwide deal with Che Records.
After 54 years away Helen Love returned to Damaged Goods in late 2001 and released another now deleted Xmas single (DG 206) and we have also re-released their Che album, on vinyl as well as a repackaged CD. We've also just done another compilation of single tracks called (surprisingly) Radio Hits 3.
From Austin, TX - the trio is ALEX CUERVO on vocals and guitar (formerly in BLACKTOP, the KING SOUND QUARTET, the GOSPEL SWINGERS, the NOW TIME DELEGATION, a FEAST OF SNAKES and THIS DAMN TOWN), TOM KODIAK (KODIAKS, DIRTY SWEETS) on guitar and ALYSE MERVOSH (THIS DAMN TOWN, WINKS) comes on with pushing drums. This foreshadowed great things to come, they´re armed with the right ingredients to have the knack for up-beat simple, insanely loud, blues-poisened powerpop. Alex´ dark powerful hydra-head vocals is absorbing you while the catchy hooks will suck you out completely. ALIEN SNATCH! is famous for their power pop taste so you know what to expect. We all get hexed - shit, we love that! Further it´s a tricky call - where some veterans may get reminded of the MISFITS, others may say RAMONES went monster & cemetery fuzz and may hear dashes of SWINGING NECKBREAKERS groove. This haunted late ´70s powerpop, which reverbs make any indie discos to freak out without this being disco or electro or get filed in the post-anything-hype. They toured the US and got radio airplay with their demo so it was a matter of time when jinxed two of elite, likewise prominent craftsmen of home recording to finish this addictive potion of rock´n´roll - recording and mixing is done by MARK RYAN of the MARKED MEN while the mastering is served by JAY REATARD. All on 45 RPM. 10 Songs, nine originals and „Down In The Park“ of TUBEWAY ARMY. 200 gram vinyl. First 100 copies on green-black slimy vinyl right from Ukraina.
The Austin top-tenners know how to deliver and feed this enormously growing monster called "following" with 12 new paranormal hit servings of their wolf spider soup, mexican bat-blood-ice-cream and medium norwegian raindeer eyes. These songs are frosted poison pills of sheer madness, lunacy! Alex Cuervo demon-calling vocals and the dispensers isolated but penetrating guitar sound and rhythm section let us stray aimlessly thru the night. Feel cornered by their genious simplicity, you still may call the WIPERS / MISFITS / RAMONES reference? Guess it´s too late pinning the HEX DISPENSERS to the wall when they already got shooted to Valhöll for their frenetic garage pop in 2007. As their first s/t album, "Winchester Mystery House" is recorded by mastermind #1 Mark Ryan (MARKED MEN) - this time mastermind #2 Dave Rahn (CARBONAS) added finishing touches. The album includes the re-recorded sold out singles "Lose my Cool" and "My Love is Bat" as far as a DEVO-Cover "Gates of Steel". Here at ALIEN SNATCH! we love putting records out where we can´t name our favorite song. First 106 copies on friggin extraordinary special blue-sprinkled vinyl - die hard mail order freaks only. Complete pressing on 180g vinyl. US-vinyl pressing by our friends at Douchemaster. Yes, they come back for a European Tour. Yes, they are the rocknroll bail-out.
What a year it’s been for the four ladies & one gentleman in Chicago band Hollows - after releasing their Trouble In Mind debut (the ""Bobby Blueheart"" single) in late 2010, the quintet has played a score of shows (including a hi-profile gig in Millennium Park, performing to approximately 10,000 people), & honed their singular sound into a razor-sharp musical talon!
Hollows have taken the girl-group influence of their debut album and time warped 20 years, creating a sound that has more in common with Kate Bush than Ronnie Spector and more Go-Go’s than Shangri-La’s. Their sophmore effort ""Vulture"" finds them mining more sophisticated & nuanced sonic territories - the opening track ""V is for Vulture"" sets the tone for the album, with its yearning throb that swells into a (literal) symphony of bittersweet horns & strings, and ""Ma Cat"" is a somber ode to a lady trucker, with vocalist/organist Maria Jenkins cooing o‘er it’s soothing melody.
THE HUSSY are a two-piece garage/punk/trash band hailing from the politically charged cheese rectum that is Madison, Wisconsin. Consisting of BOBBY and HEATHER, the band has spent the last three years releasing a slew of singles, tapes, and a critically recognized debut LP Cement Tomb Mind Control (released in May 2011 Slow Fizz Records). Weed Seizure is the follow-up to The Hussy?s sold out debut and is released via the Tic Tac Totally Records imprint based in Chicago (Bare Wires, OBN IIIs, Moonhearts, etc.). The new LP was recorded and mixed by Bobby Hussy and mastered by JUSTIN PERKINS (Jaill, Goodnight Loving, etc.). It features 13 of the scuzziest garage stompers this side of the Oblivians. Think Ty Segall angst meets Reatards rampage with a batch of ?60s girl group pop charm. Melodies that stick and rot, drums that pummel and guitar that throws you on an endless LSD loop. Weed Seizure is a psych punk classic for the masses. Artwork designed by legendary outsider artist BEN LYON, most known for his incredibly illustrated fliers
On their debut album Public Sector, Hygiene take the listener on a post-pub stagger through the concrete walkways and underpasses of Britain's decline. Daydreaming at their offices on a weekday or at home with their record collection on a Saturday night, the members of Hygiene are dislocated in both time and space. Their LP has one DM boot in the past and the other longwing brogue firmly up the backside of the present. Public Sector hearkens back to a time of Polytechnic radicalism, Special Patrol Group repression and O Level temptresses yet evades the pitfalls of vapid historicity and pastiche. Hygiene see historical continuities and follow them to their logical conclusions, reducing their influences down to their essential constituent elements and reassembling them into now music for now people. Flouting Rockist conventions with equal doses of stark minimalism and plodding fury, these post-punks resolutely refuse the "post" prefix.
Después de estar un año trabajando en grabaciones, mezclas y diseños varios el primer LP de HZERO es una realidad. Larga duración compuesto por 8 trallazos de CAÑA ANTIGUA (riffs de la muerte, bajos crujientes y voces de perro) con buenas dosis de Rock y conservando sus raíces Hardcore. Mete en un tren a toda ostia a BLACK FLAG y NEGATIVE APPROACH, y en direccion contraria otro con POISON IDEA y TURBONEGRO. El estallido entre ambos te golpea directo a la cara, asi suenan HZERO. 8 temas en menos de veinte minutos, a 45 revoluciones y con una bonita y cuidada presentación a cargo de Screaming Mario Loco.
Sin duda uno de los grupos más talentosos del pop español en los últimos años, encarnación del espiritu adolescente del beat, creadores de melodías pop que desarman y artesanos de los arreglos, pocos pueden presumir de un curriculum como el suyo.
Los Immediatos se han convertido, por méritos propios, en todo un referente en la escena 60′s española de los últimos años; arrastran un extenso kilometraje que les ha llevado a recorrer numerosos escenarios a lo largo y ancho de toda la península y pisar afamados escenarios europeos en eventos como el Primitive Festival (Holanda) o el Festival Beat (Italia). Su experiencia y saber hacer les ha permitido compartir escenario con un montón de bandas de renombre, desde los míticos Pretty Things a los incombustibles Trashmen pasando por los Fleshtones o los británicos Wildebeests... vamos, son lo que se dice unos auténticos veteranos dispuestos a montarse en la furgoneta a la más mínima oportunidad.
De Beau Brummels a los Brincos, de Hollies a Powder, de Squires a … Los Immediatos.
Nuremberg-based IMMURED, uncompromisingly rooted in the worldwide Underground scene for almost two decades, return with their second full-length onslaught. AN UNENDING HELL continues where 2005 album FAKE NEW WORLD and 2007 self-titled EP left off: Blistering DARK HARD PUNK delivered with venom and wrath.
Recorded and mixed at almost legendary local Lonestar Studio (Amen 81, Genetiks, Missouri), then sent to Austin/TX to get mastered by Jack Control (Severed Head of State, World Burns to Death) to give this 8 song ripper the final polish.
Comes in a top-notch finish on 140g vinyl with matt varnished 300g sleeves plus 12 page booklet made with passion and attention to detail. Additionally, there’s a die-hard edition of 50 copies on grey marbled vinyl with japanese lettering silver foil only available through the band.
Hard-charging grim black as night Hardcore Punk Blitzkrieg!
The top show are four not-formerly-known-sons of the OHIO EXPRESS, rumors say they toured Sweden in hope to free villages full of of blonde girls hold by the ABBA sect. Expect 60´s bubblegum blood splattered tracks, instant remarkable punk singing as DICKIES and UNDERTONES on the speed parts and thrift store rock and sticky power pop with the SHIVVERS, REAL KIDS, RASPBERRIES on the tapedeck telling stories about first turn-ons, sneaky looks and yesterday's girls on the two minutes rides. The wagons are equipped with endorphine popgun shots of early YUMS YUMS or RED KROSS, totally electrified & buzzing as the Atlantas' BARRERACUDAS and square & weird as LOVE BOAT islanders will splash at the last curve. Adrenaline filled, addicting flatterin´voice & the hooks to massage any moustache wins definately the sing-sing-songwriting-contest of they year.
Grupo madrileño formado a finales de 1980, su carrera comenzó en los bares de Malasaña en tiempos de revival garagero y rockero, pero a ellos lo que les gustaba era el beat de los Beatles, el pop de los Brincos, el folk-rock de los Byrds o el rhythm and blues de los Animals, eran un grupo que avanzaba en dirección contraria, sin destino, pero convencidos de lo que hacían. Llegaron momentos de experimentación con la psicodelia , posteriormente se atrevieron a crear una “poperetta” que dejó a todo el mundo boquiabierto por la descomunal muestra de tal compañía para crear complejas y preciosistas joyas de pop que remitían a obras maestras del pop clásico de los 60 como el “Forever Changes” de Love, el “Odessey & Oracle” de Zombies o el “Sgt. Pepper’s…” de Beatles.
Con el paso de los años, Los Imposibles desenmarañaron sus melodías para acercarse a la pista de baile, entrelazando sus habituales gemas pop con temas de rhythm and blues y soul. Vientos y alma negra que dieron paso en su último disco del 2007 a aires de nueva ola y powerpop descarado.

It's a hard realization to discover that the world may not be as magical and wondrous as you once believed, & reconciling ones loss of innocence and sense of naïveté is a theme that reoccurs often in art, music and literature. From 'To Kill a Mockingbird' to 'God Only Knows' the best articulations of lost youth can have a very visceral impact. The 12 tracks that make up the debut album ""Cabinet of Curiosities"" from Dutch multi-instrumentalist and producer Jacco Gardner deftly explore this territory in a far more accomplished and mature way than you would expect from a 24 year old, fulfilling the promises made by his first two singles.
Jacco's melodic palette colors music with a more U.K.-sensibility, where minor chords & plush harmonies brush up against strings, mellotrons, harpsichords & an occasional squeezebox. The overall feel is more Zombies than Left Banke and more Nirvana & Billy Nicholls than Beach Boys & Van Dyke Parks. The title track ""Cabinet of Curiosities"" is an instrumental reminiscent of the best of Curt Boettcher's projects like The Millennium and Sagittarius with its playful baroque arrangements. 'The One Eyed King' and 'Chameleon' delicately evokes a softly waning sunset melancholy while 'Puppets Dangling' slinks forward suggestively at first, unfolds into an expansive, string-soaked chorus, before winding back into a taut melodic denouement.
Recorded & engineered at his ""Shadow Shoppe"" Studio in Zwaag, The Netherlands, ""Cabinet Of Curiosities"" features Jacco playing every instrument (save the drums, deftly played by Jos van Tol) & was pre-mastered by Jan Audier - famed engineer of Dutch garage/psych heavies Q65, The Golden Earrings & The Motions on his vast array of authentic Sixties analog gear. The first Trouble In Mind edition of ""Cabinet Of Curiosities"" is pressed on randomly mixed 150gm vinyl, includes a full-color insert & download code.

Formed by ex-Parkinsons front-man Afonso and including former members of Menace, The Shakin’ Nasties, the Jackoffs, the Chinese Lungs, the Stains and Urban Shocks, Johnny Throttle have been playing drunken, beer-soaked gigs since the tail end of 2008. They play snotty, moronic and straight-to-the-point gonzo-garage punk rock, banging out furious 20-minute (smoking ban-friendly) sets of short and catchy songs that bring to mind something like Slaughter and the Dogs meet the Electric Eels. Longer if they like you. This is probably London’s best punk rock band, and definitely the snottiest.
Their debut release, “Stukas Über Shoreditch”, which came out on Wrench Records, was a two-fingered salute and a spit in the eye. If you didn’t know better you’d think it was a 1976 release recorded by glue-sniffing, speed-freaked, three-chord, angst-addled teens, frying up the airspace with sub two minute machine gun aural abortions, securing themselves a defining Peel session before splitting up and fucking off for a life behind a desk working in an insurance office.
After a second 45 on the legendary Crypt Records, it’s now time for their first full length offering – which is a similarly abrasive kick to the head, a blistering, full-on, spiked slab of rampant frenzy, replete with 100mph serrating riffs, like a seriously wired Dead Boys having a party with The Stooges whilst the pub rock honk of Eddie & the Hot Rods unsuccessfully tries to calm things down.
Like the best bands of the seventies punk era, Johnny Throttle are hugely influenced by the sixties garage bands, and were regulars in the audience, and on the stage, at the old Dirty Water Club during the last decade. But the main thing to them is that the music has to be sharp as a dagger, threatening but also beautiful. The 12 tracks on this album are inspired mini-operas, played with the kind of near incompetent teenage enthusiasm which only borderline middle-aged, lowlifes, has-beens and neverweres can truly muster.
This is real rock’n’roll, the way it was meant to be – it has an urgency and honesty that no teenager today can manage to achieve, despite their skinny jeans and carefully studied attitude. Johnny Throttle have the attitude, learned from a life on the streets, hanging out in cheap dives and hanging out with cheap women. Johnny Throttle are for real.

Jook came on like bastard sons of The Who and, if this first ever collection of the band's entire recorded works achieves anything, it should be to elevate the band from the Glitter Bin, and back to their rightful place as one of the greatest rock n’ roll acts ever.
The 'Punk' style became quite popular in Milan only after the Adam and the Ants concerts in 1978. After this event (15th/16th october), the local kids became conscious that build a 'punk scene' in town was finally possible. Of course, some bands were started before those nights (see Decibel, that were the official supporters of the Ants). But 'our' focus in this story is dedicated to Mittageisen, Gags, TV Vampire, Jumpers, 198X. This album contains three tracks recorded in studio of Jumpers (more punk, in the same vein of Clash, Pistols) and rare sessions of 198X, a band inspired by Wire/Siouxsie and the Banshees/Adam and the Ants that were connected with Mittageisen, Gags. TV Vampire. This album is a true 'missing link' for all the euro-punk fans!
London based band with Jimmy Pursey's little brother on vocals. Jimmy Pursey (of "Sham 69") also produced their only and great 7” released in 1979 on major Warner Bros records. Their tracks were compiled on various punk bootleg compilations during these years. Finally on vinyl, the anthology that contains all their studio tracks + a bunch of great 'live' cuts. Limited to 500 copies!!!! Be fast to order!!!!
24 hard Finnish smashers in the vein of the mighty LAMA! Includes their classic material from the first EP, Mini-LP and LP originally issued on Poko Records in 1981/82! Comes with superb artwork and all their offensive political lyrics! Two songs were censored by Poko, here are the original versions! If you di early Suomi Punk/HC this is mandatory!!
Record Store Day release 2012. Gatefold jacket, black vinyl. Limited numbers available.
REISSUE.The La De Das were a leading New Zealand rock band of the 1960s and early 1970s. Formed in New Zealand in 1963 (as The Mergers), they enjoyed considerable success in both New Zealand and Australia until their split in 1975. Here their first LP, a long time awaited reissue, this is maybe one of the best R&B/Garage records out of New Zealand and Australia during the 60s. Tunes like "How Is The Air Up There" or "On Top Of The World" are among the best in the genre. It's a masterpiece from 1966, for every rock, garage or mod fans around the globe, this is the best you can get.
“It happens very rarely (like a couple of times over the course of 120 releases) that we here at Dirtnap get a random CDR demo in the mail, pop it in, listen to it a couple of times, and then slap our fist down
on the counter and say ‘fuck it, we'll put that out!’ And that's just what happened in the case of Kalamzoo, MI's LEGENDARY WINGS. Unsolicited demos are largely a lousy way to round up new bands
for the label, but once in a blue moon you get one that's just THAT good. Musically, the apple that is Legendary Wings doesn't fall TOO far from the tree that is Dirtnap Records, (think caffeiniated, raw,
fast pop), but they are also unmistakably, instantly identifiable as originating from the Midwest.Potential Johns meets Gaunt? Scared Of Chaka if they were from Minneapolis? Denton with jangle?
Their mix of caffeinated instrumentation, and overly sensitive lyrics will make you melt if the mood is right.”
12"-I think we have found the perfect format format for Andy Jordan's (The Cuts, Time Flys, Andy Human) spacey glam-punk material of recent vintage. Under Neon is a beautifully concise and balanced record with a huge sounding vision. 4-songs that sprawl out nicely across a 12" dishing equal shares of Andy's awestruck John Hughes sugar, and the darkened melodramatic undercurrent of class-A punk gloss carved in marble. It leaves you with aural phantoms ringing of Roxy Music, Grauzone or any number of high-class power-pop bell-ringers. The guitar tracks of Ray Seraphin (Nobunny, Epic Sessions, The Impediments) chisel this vision into the grooves leaving a big, clean, self-produced fingerprint for maximum taste. Under Neon follows their sole S.S. 7", and we're sure those in the know will appreciate both incredible mission statements these records provide. This record was lovingly mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service, and it comes in a beautiful reverse-jacket with inner-sleeve and yes, includes a download code with purchase of the vinyl.
Once again recorded at their home in the south of France by LIO himself, Costa Blanca pushes the envelope of their signature Franc-o-phonic sound; the coloeur cafe cool of Gainsbourg, the hypnotic drone of VU-era Cale, and the spiky fuzz of Davie Allan. This time around the band laces the tunes with a dramatic flair of French New Wave soundtracks and the percussive sonic accents found in Morricone’s work in “Il Gruppo", for it's funk-laced tracks incorporated with elements of avant-classical and experimental sonic elements.
THE LIMIT sprang from fertile ground. In the early 1980s, New Orleans was home to a thriving punk, hardcore, new wave and metal scene. The Limit, who coined their brand of music “powerful pop,” began playing the local club scene in the spring of 1982.
The trio recorded their debut EP at the end of 1982 and released it as a 10” in May of 1983 in an edition of 500 copies. Featuring four infectiously catchy tunes, the record sold well and received promising reviews.
Although the band enjoyed modest success in Louisiana, drawing large crowds to their shows, they were unable to gain interest from major labels. The band lost momentum and ultimately broke up in January of 1984.
30 years after The Limit recorded the songs for their sole release, Cheap Rewards Records is excited to give new life to their music. The Limit LP compiles the songs from the band’s self-released EP, along with a demo of their shoulda-been hit, “Uh Oh,” plus an entire side of previously unreleased live recordings. Expertly restored from original source tapes, this record is a remarkable listen from start to finish. All copies come with a free digital download card.
REISSUE.A perfect pair alongside Rockin' Horse's 'Yes It Is,' the self-titled album by The Liverpool Echo makes a swaggering assertion for the enduring power and captivation of the early Mersey styles of McCartney & Lennon.The idea was simple: make a hit record in the early, authentic style of the band with the most hits of all time – THE BEATLES – and use said record as a springboard to capitalize on the ten-year anniversary of their birth. And do it cheaply. And in only one week.While The Liverpool Echo proved perhaps too late to ferry 'cross the Mersey and too early to dilate its pupils to Starry Eyes, the record they left behind remains the most wonderfully rocking cenotaph to the original Cavern Club 'moment' that I have ever encountered.So you might as well surrender…It's for you!

After the MANIKINS hung up their guitars and called it a day, Kalle and Max roamed the nocturnal streets and met their old pal Nero who was taking Chewbacca for his daily walk. Together they went over to the 24/7 juke joint for some of that delicious and eyesight-robbing Swedish moonshine liquor and went insane.
The rest is history documented on this second Vollgas album that was written in one go on the backside of an old Samantha Fox poster and recorded straight away in the drunk tank of the local police station. When the four OAFS were found in the morning, they had thrashed themselves into a rabid delirium and the shocked officers sent these 18 outbursts directly over to the P. Trash HQ. We see it as our duty to let this thrashy testimony be a warning for our youth to keep away from the evil spitits by letting you listen in indignation to such a wild blast of fast and beating songs entitled ''Dead by dawn'', ''The best thing that ever happened to me is nothing'', ''The dark ages are coming back (and I f**king like it)'' and the even more shocking ''Pissing on a drowning man'' and ''Surfin' on a big brown wave of shit'', together with a whole lotta more titles where those poor boys speak in tongues, clearly lost forever. Relentless and unforgiving. Keep away in a safe place, we know how hard it is to resist such tasty temptation.
LTS were formed in 1978 as one of the earliest Mod Revival band, split up in 1982 and reformed in 2000.
Now they are back with 15 new songs incl. a Re-working of their old live classic ANTI CND which has never been previously recorded by LTS. And the music is more or less the same as in the early stages - Mod Punk with powerpop and 60..s influences.
So once again they epitomized the pure Mod Revival sound with incorporate the agression of Punk and call it today Giffer!

2xLP.Detour Records are at it again - bringing you the very best in the ‘79 Mod Revival!! Following on from our hugely successful ‘Chords’ ‘Fast Cars’ and ‘Incredible Kidda Band’ releases we are now extremely proud to bring an (almost) complete career oversight of one of the earliest and best Mod Revival bands - Long Tall Shorty!!!
Formed in 1978 and originally known as ‘The Indicators’ the band went on tour with the ‘Angelic Upstarts’ where they attracted the attentions of Jimmy Pursey who signed the band to his ‘JP Productions’ label and suggested a name change to ‘Long Tall Shorty’.
The band played extensively all over the country and soon became one of the brightest lights in the burgeoning Mod Revival scene with music papers, fanzines and fans everywhere raving about their powerful live shows. This was ‘real’ music - pile-driving R&B tinged Mod that led to the band releasing several singles - the debut single ‘By Your Love’ that came out on the ‘Warner Bros’ label was withdrawn with only 200 copies rumoured to be sold. The band’s second release ‘Win Or Lose’ on the ‘Ramkup’ label is one of the main collectables on the Mod / Punk collectors circuit and now regularly fetches up to £100.00. The band soldiered on until the Mid 80's and called it a day in 1985.
Now, what we have here is an extensive over-view of the bands career. The first disc features the album that the band recorded for Warner Bros back in 1979 that was to be ‘1970's Boy’ but was withdrawn at the last minute - a real treat in itself! The second disc features rare and previously unreleased tracks from the band’s history and is a great insight for fans into some great recordings. Also featured is the rare single ‘Anti CND’ that the band released under the name ‘Joe Public’ for fear of a backlash!! Coming with great packaging on both formats with heaps of rare photos and liner notes by Tony Perfect and Eddie Piller this is a real treat of a release!!
The band are back up and gigging again and will be playing The Water Rats at King’s Cross, London on 20th July supported by ‘Fast Cars’ and the great ‘79 Mod band ‘The Teenbeats’ - be there!!!
Loose Prick, the classic punk quartet from Kouvola, Finland, kicked off their career with two seven inches at the tail end of the seventies and then put out the debut full length 'Valkoiset sotilaat' on Poko Records in the summer of 1980. From three-chord punk rock blasters to slight experimentation and new wave influences, the album is a stone cold cult classic. It has not been reissued in its original form since 1980, until now.
The Svart reissue is 24-bit mastered for vinyl from the original tapes and comes in a gatefold jacket, which features liner notes by the band and some unseen photos.
The LP is available on standard black and limited white vinyl.
Don't be fooled by the self-deprecating title of Love Is All's newest EP. Last Choice is anything but. It takes its name from its title track, the stunning, swaggering disco-ish standout that first appeared on the Swedes' sophomore full-length, A Hundred Things That Keep Me Up At Night, and though the EP's five other songs are all new B-sides, they don't sound like leftovers. In fact, the EP's main fault is that it's too short; these five new songs deserve to be paired with another five on a full-length. With each subsequent effort Love Is All refine their sound, and Last Choice suggests their best work could actually be yet to come. Though they started as spazzy noisniks who joyously shouted and pounded so loudly that it was often hard to hear the ""pop"" in their heavily rhythmic pop anthems, on A Hundred Things they exerted more control over their delightfully messy sonics and placed greater emphasis on their wonderfully descriptive and direct lyrics.
With their mastery of richly detailed yet simple storytelling, Love Is All offer lyrics that crackle with added resonance. Often overshadowed by the spastic din of her bandmates, singer Josephine Olausson's warbled words now have the space to be heard. So though the title track will immediately win listeners over with its glammy, steel drums-like keyboard intro and a plinky, sax-studded melodic interlude ripped from Bruce Springsteen's ""Rosalita"", it will earn repeated plays with its straightforward depiction of the kind of end-of-the-party loneliness that leads one to go home with their ""Last Choice"": ""The same song is on repeat, something inappropriately upbeat/ And now people leave hand-in-hand, as if according to some mysterious plan/ I'm about to be left alone, I'm sitting on the sofa on my own.""
Olausson has intermittent regard for pop rhyme schemes and seems to care even less if her chosen words fit into the music's allotted space, either hurrying over syllables or drawing them out over extra beats. But her off-kilter delivery-- with its emphasis on her hard Scandinavian ""r""s, babydoll-voiced run-on sentences, and explosive caterwaul-- adds character to her distinctive, first-person narratives. Who knows if the songs on Last Choice are autobiographical, but Olausson's unselfconscious approach to her subjects-- she often presents them at their worst, most selfish, or loneliest-- makes her a rare vanity-free frontperson. ""Early Warnings"", a Yeah Yeah Yeahs-ish stomp, describes an accident-prone, very bad morning-after. On ""Jealousy"" Olausson takes the guise of a demanding girlfriend having a public fight with her boyfriend, and ""Vans Vans Vans"", which returns to the harder-hitting, fuzzier, more lo-fi aesthetic of Love Is All's first album, recounts unglamorous tales from the road.
If the band believes that their debut was, in fact, nine different versions of the same song (as its title jokingly claimed), then they must be proud of Last Choice's diversity. They display comfort with jangly, Clean-like pop (as on ""From Your Corner"") and surprising agility with heartbroken, tambourine-aided twee (as on ""Loud Heart""), as well as re-pledging their allegiance to the funky, manic post-punk that they made their name on. This EP may be short-- it's less than 19 minutes-long-- but it makes a very big statement about the future of this Swedish quintet: They've only just begun to show what they can do.
Low Culture's Screens will probably be my favourite album of the year, as well as being one of the best I've heard in the last ten years. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, it should give some idea why I've rated this as five stars and anyone who disagrees can... well, I don't care because you're wrong. Now on to the business in hand:
Low Culture are from Las Cruces, NM and features members from bands such as The Marked Men and Shang-a-Lang, both of which excel at punk rock played with big fat nods to garage and pop in suitable doses along the way. As good as both those bands were/are, I really do believe that the dozen songs on Screens take things to another level. It's not a case of a band creating something new, it's more that they've taken a punk/garage sound and used it as the foundation for a whole bunch of ridiculously cracking songs.
The album kicks off with the title track and it's like a greyhound out of the traps, hurtling along at top speed and taking me along for a short, sharp ride. However, there is no time to catch a breath from start to finish really, as there is a momentum throughout the album which doesn't dip in terms of pace or quality, although the final track ""Magical Thinking"" does slow things down a touch as Screens reaches its conclusion.
Don't be kidded into thinking that this album is just a blur, as there are huge chunks of melody within these songs, some great lyrics and hooks aplenty all delivered with a sense of purpose, which seems to be to do something that is simple and effective yet different enough to make it stand out. The production on the album, provided by Mark Ryan (Mind Spiders/Marked Men), is massively fit for purpose and gives a cleanish feel to the record, but one which does not feel overproduced and homogenised. The other thing that hits me each and every time I listen to Screens is the use of the cymbals: for me, this is what keeps up that frenetic pace, thus allowing guitars and bass to seem as if they're being played that much faster than perhaps they are.
Each listen provides me with another favourite track on here and one day it could be ""Pills,"" the next it's ""Screens"" and then it could be ""I Feel Your Ghost""; each song has its own merits to have it vying for the best track on the album. Additionally, I find various tracks just leaping into my head without any notice, and to be fair it's always a welcomed arrival, guaranteed to cheer me up.
There you have it, the top spot on my Best Of 2013 List is almost certainly decided now and if you consider yourself to have any interest in music (and I deliberately do not use the word 'punk' because I think this transcends genres) then give this a listen and see what you think (but I reiterate, if you don't like it, I don't care!).
Heretofore, the Love Triangle's recordings have been marked by a particularly raw, aggressive, and even ugly take on classic power pop. Sure, the choruses were huge, but the recordings were ear-splittingly raw and aggressive. However, they've changed things up a bit for their first long-player, opting for a cleaner recording that assures nothing is lost in the translation to wax. The essential elements are still there--Tim's four-on-the-floor drumming, Josh's meandering walking bass lines, and Louis's thrillingly melodic vocals and guitar--but you can actually hear them all rather than just inferring their presence through a wall of feedback and fuzz. The effect is a full-length that recalls the classic songwriting of Nuggets greats like the Electric Prunes and the Seeds as much as it does the more melodic end of the '77 set like Protex, the Lurkers, and the Boys. An LP so good that we don't even need to tell you this is ex-Shitty Limits to get you to buy it.
Inspired by the ‘77 Punk pages of Creem and Rolling Stone magazines, four suburban Detroit high school journalism classmates fashioned themselves into a band. Only one actually knew how to play guitar. Like that ever mattered. Luke Mucus & The Phlegm were born out of boredom, a taste for the absurd, and a compulsion to take class-clowning to new sonic levels (and depths). Eric Winer (Luke Mucus), Dave Perry (Runny Buttz), Howard “Pork” Iwrey, and Cliff Iwrey (Mitch Wretched) plied their love of Classic/Progressive/Singer-Songwriter Rock into the brave new world of Punk. Their first performance was their chanted anthem “Do Something Gross,” over a cart-tape loop of the riff from KISS’ “Detroit Rock City,” with canned crowd cheering in the background. Recorded for Winer’s school radio station’s comedy show on WBHS, it seemed like a complete one-off. Friend-of-friend, Kevin Chudler (Sweet Lew Putrid) happened to be hanging out in the studio, and Winer immediately recruited Chudler on guitar. LMP unleashed a few of their original-songs live at the now infamous “West Bloomfield High Gong Show,” and proceeded to continue their [close] rants, even after the plug had been pulled on them for exceeding their five-minute limit. Seems they had a lot of NOTHING that demanded to be heard. Being heard meant a real demo, so LMP set up in Winer’s parents’ living room. The WBHS mono mixing board and a tape deck were hooked up to somehow and somewhat capture the madness. The vocal mic was plugged directly into the board so as not to allow for the vocals to be heard live. Song keys-be-damned. The tape, called “Body Functions” landed LMP their first gigs, booked through local punk impresarios, Sureshot Productions. Winer’s younger friend, Randy “Yid” Sosin, had been hip to the whole deal. Sold on the concept, he drove with Winer to borrow his friend David Hirsch’s drum kit and became Luke Mucus & The Phlegm’s drummer on the spot. Hirsch years later became Dick Clark’s replacement on American Bandstand (YouTube Search: Dick Clark toasting Randy Sosin’s marriage in a priceless sendup). LMP was now starting to take legitimate shape. Perry switched from drums to his real instrument, guitar. Cliff Iwrey disappeared into the abyss of suburbia. Basement practices started in earnest, and by Fall ‘78, at the ages of 16 -18, LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM started playing the Detroit punk clubs Bookie’s, Lili’s, The New (Old) Miami, Nunzio’s, The Red Carpet, etc. These were The Motor City’s versions of CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City. Remember, Detroit was still about 5th largest metro area in the country then, and half of the male inhabitants between 15 and 30 wanted to be Iggy Pop. A large audience, and at the same time, a lot of competition. Therein lies the rub. Combining the anarchist rantings of The Sex Pistols, the industrial chugging of The Stooges, the body-surfing-on-speed of The Ramones, the Vaudeville showmanship of Alice Cooper, and the nod/wink social commentary of Frank Zappa, LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM offered a unique entrée in Detroit’s booming punk buffet. In fact, LMP’s first gig at Bookie’s on Sept. 8, 1978 was two months to the day before The Police played the same venue for their Detroit debut. The Police already had an A & M recording deal and the hit single “Roxanne” on their hands, but why quibble over details? Neither LMP, nor the crowd knew what to expect that first show, but LMP won over most of the bewildered witnesses, including headliners The Mutants and TuTu & The Pirates with their over-the-top assault. LMP felt they were in their element, as they marveled over TuTu’s guitar that was made out of a toilet seat. Tasteful, indeed. But “getting” LMP was not an acquired taste. You either got it or you didn’t. And if you got it, YOU LOVED IT AND COULDN’T GET ENOUGH. One guy who got it at that first gig was Wayne “Burrito” Lax, who, as luck would have it, was there with a friend who knew the band. Two weeks later “Burrito,” with his bass guitar in tow, and an unyielding Rock & Roll soul, would meet up with Winer at Michigan State University. The band needed a bass player, and “Burrito” was in. Luke Mucus & The Phlegm played for two, curiously magical years before morphing into the poppier/New Wave outfit, Luke Warm (see also on Rave Up Records). The ’79 basement studio recording of Luke Mucus & The Phlegm’s “Live At Yid’s” along with various other live performances are presented now for the first time to the public on Rave Up Records, in their remastered, but un-edited versions. “Luke Mucus & The Phlegm attacked Punk as only suburban, Midwestern teen smart-asses could… like they were the only band in the world.” – Chuck Eddy, Rock Critic- Creem, Rolling Stone, Spin, EW, etc.
In 1980, Detroit’s LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM morphed into the more user-friendly LUKE WARM. Catching the New Wave/Power Pop bug, LUKE WARM discovered their strengths as songwriters, and grew from delivering raw, entertaining absurdities, to still quirky, but catchier, polished gems. Their classic lineup of “Luke” - Eric Winer (vocals/lyrics), “Runny” - Dave Perry (lead guitar), “Sweet Lew” - Kevin Chudler (rhythm guitar), Randy “Yid” Sosin (drums), and “Burrito” - Wayne Lax (bass), had forged a unique sound for two years, and were now ready to build on their momentum. Current, but somehow from a different head than their contemporaries, Luke Warm was on a mission to share their inside-jokes with a larger audience. With Rock Radio playing The Knack (led by ex-Detroiter Doug Fieger) and The Romantics (also from Detroit), there was optimism throughout The Motor City that a number of bands might bust out of The Rust Belt to make it big. Luke Warm went to work: writing, practicing, recording, and gigging. Following the sage advice of their first manager to “write hits,” and with a booking [close] agent on board, LW moved well past just getting paid gas & beer money. Headlining a incendiary string of shows at Angie’s in Farmington, just outside of Detroit, LW developed an avid fan base that would follow them throughout their ’80-’82 shows in Detroit, Ann Arbor, and Lansing, Michigan. And The Luke Warm Show was just that: A SHOW. Neither classically, nor remedially trained as a singer, Luke delivered songs like a riffing stand-up comic on a fiery roll. Whether clad in leather shorts and a referee shirt, or sporting a suave white dinner jacket, Luke presented a variety of personas and characters, aiming to simultaneously enlighten, enrage, and entertain. Like the leader of a Punk Rat Pack, Luke sang, danced, and wise-guyed his way to rousing applause no matter the venue. Perry, rail-thin and feather-haired, played the heartthrob playboy with wicked, melodic, and bluesy leads that were not standard one-string punk-power-drills to the brain. As the band’s musical director, Perry was part partner and part foil to Luke’s antics with his backing and answer vocals. A star in his own right. Chudler solidly kept it driving on rhythm guitar. Understated, yet always with subversive swagger and deadpan humor. While not the biggest member of the group, Chudler was undoubtedly the toughest. He always had every one’s back, on stage and off. And when Chudler stepped off, versatile guitarist/singer Steve Tarnowsky stepped in, and brought his smooth musicianship and versatility to the band. Hands down the coolest guy in Luke Warm without trying, was Randy Sosin. Sosin’s quirky, syncopated, and lyrical drumming kept the set in a variety of motions… whimsical, dramatic, chaotic… all while staying true to the heart of every song. Though the youngest member, the band looked to Sosin for keeping them tuned into new music, fashion, and clubs. And then there was Burrito on bass. The show within the show. Stalking the stage with a demonstrative style fit for an arena headliner, Burrito lived and died the band, the set, every song, every note. Chugging with Chudler and Sosin, Burrito’s emotions and sheer joy gave Luke a foil and ally on the right as Perry soared on the left. Burrito once celebrated the end of a show by not-so-faux-slamming the mic stand down on Luke’s head, as Luke lie exhausted on the ground. What’s a little blood? It was great theater. Notoriety came when Luke Warm’s “Jesus Chrysler,” single, a poke-in-the-eye to the failing auto giant, was released b/w “Why Don’t You Like Me?” (a thinly veiled answer song to The Romantics (“What I Like About You”). Continued gigging, radio airplay, interviews and a Detroit Free Press article (about a Chrysler executive who got in trouble for buying 10 records and passing them around the office), gave Luke Warm the motivation that they were now on the right track. And, if fate smiled on their burgeoning talents, that they might also have been on the fast-track. Time, of course is relative… and you can now follow Luke Warm’s tracks now on RAVE UP! “What can I say about Luke Warm that hasn’t already been said in therapy by anyone who ever attended one of their shows.” Howard Kramer, Curatorial Director Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Cleveland (Former Manager of Luke Warm). LONG LIVE LUKE WARM!
The first two 7"es, a compilation track, unreleased studio demos and the first John Peel Session, all recorded in 1977.
The MALLRATS are a hook laden power-pop trio from Sacramento, California. The band formed in late 2000 with Adam Miller on bass, Ted Angel on guitar, vocals and Mickie Rat on drums. Seventeen year old boywonder, Steele Strella later replaced Mickie solidifying the bands sound.
Armed with Rickenbacker guitars and Vox amps, the MALLRATS play infectious power-pop influenced by the JAM, the BUZZCOCKS, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Mr.T.EXPERIENCE and of course, the DECIBELS.
They have already gained a loyal following in their hometown of Sacramento, which is now extending to the Bay Area and the rest of California and they will certainly conquer Europe with the release of their debut-album too. They have also found success on the internet, recently ranking in the top ten in the power-pop charts on mp3.com
This past winter the MALLRATS went into the studio with the amazing Bart Thurber (ODD NUMBERS, WORKIN´STIFFS, HI-FIVES) and cameout with this full length's worth of super cool sounding, catchy as hell tunes,affectionately called ""Fall in love all over again with""
Youth, energy and the ability to write great songs makes them one of the brightest new stars in power-pop heaven. Listen and fallin love all over again with the MALLRATS. http://www.themallrats.com
The Mandates are a punk/power-pop quartet based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Formed in 2010, Matt Sikkens, Jimmy Sixx, Kirch N. Destroy and their drummer, Tahoe, have dedicated the most ambitious few years of their lives to writing the best '77 pop punk anthems their minds can arrange. Taking cues from classic acts like Teenage Head, Thin Lizzy, New York Dolls and The Jam, The Mandates have forged through their music scene, creating something vintage and yet somehow maintaining a modern appeal. The 12"" follow-up to their first single ""Take You to the Dance"" os boasting their most danceable choruses and inspired lyrics to date. This full length vinyl release, produced by Portland punk rock aficionado Pat Kearns (Exploding Hearts, Nice Boys, Red Dons, Clorox Girls) is a passionate and earnest endeavour.
This record was originally released on MAMMOTH CAVE.
Super swell Buzz Saw/Killed By Death Punk from two new Orleans bands! Complete Recordings 1980-1981!Both bands were the brain child of Larry Holmes who ran the legendary Vinyl Solution record label and the Final Solution fanzine in New Orleans. Beginning in 1979, Vinyl Solution released singles by early punk bands Red Rockers, Shell Shock, Toxin III and other locals, along with the scene defining No Questions, No Answers compilation LP. The vinyl releases are U.S Punk classics, and his Final Solution fanzine was by far, the best documentation of the early New Orleans punk scene. Making sure to cover all angles, Larry put the Manic Depressives together. He choose pals like local loonie Mandeville Mike and members of the Models to fill the line up. The band didn't last too long, but they managed to leave behind a 7""ep and a two compilation cuts of tough, yet melodic speed punk. When the Manic Depressives ended, Larry formed the similar sounding 0:30 Second Flash with another group of friends. They recorded a four song EP and played live a few times, but they were over even faster than the Manic Depressives. The EP was not released as planned, and Larry, like many others got bored with punk when it turned hardcore.
We've collected the complete recordings of both bands on a 45rpm 12"". Side one has the Manic Depressives 7”ep and compilation tracks from 1980-1981, while side two is the unreleased 0:30 Second Flash 7""ep from 1981. Pressed in a an edition of 500 copies on black vinyl, housed in a color jacket with previously unpublished photos and liner notes.
MANUAL SCAN emerged from San Diego’s fertile music scene in 1981. Initially popular on the teen dance circuit, the band quickly became a club favorite, gigging throughout the state over the next decade. Manual Scan recorded for several indie labels through their run, releasing records in England, The U.S. and Spain. Heavily mod inspired with a love for The Zombies and The Jam, All Night Scan includes 19 of their best tracks taken from numerous recording sessions beginning with their 1982 debit, Plan of Action.
Twelve punchy, tightly wound bullets of punk and power-pop goodness from Dallas Texas' finest, THE MARKED MEN. Featuring ex-members of beloved Texas outfit THE REDS, the band's debut album on Rip Off Records put them on just about every discerning punk rocker's 2003 top ten list, which was followed by highly successful tours of the US and Japan. With this highly anticipated and well produced follow-up, the boys are poised for even more.
Blurring the rawness and velocity of their self-titled debut with the slightly more developed songwriting "chops" of the last two, the Marked Men have truly delivered the best of both worlds. you can pop the needle on "Ghosts" for 5 seconds and instantly be left without a doubt as to whom you are listening. It ain't pop-punk. It ain't power-pop. It ain't KBD or '77 style punk. At this point, the Marked Men sound like absolutely no one but themselves.
REISSUE.In 1980, shortly after SUICIDE's second full-length, MARTIN REV released his first solo album on preeminent No Wave label Infidelity (Lust/Unlust). Uninhibited by the trappings of a collaborator, Rev was freed to explore his most experimental and pop leanings with dirty synths, dark melodies, and dreamlike textures, and produced a masterpiece of modern alienation that captures a uniquely New York landscape.
Echoing other electronic forerunners such as SILVER APPLES and KRAFTWERK, and foreshadowing the work of APHEX TWIN and AIR, Rev's solo outing rests firmly in the lineage of unnerving sounds from the furthest fringe of maladjustment.
First-time vinyl reissue. Insert includes new Rev interview by musician / critic Alan Licht.
Debut full length from these crooks. It’s fun stuff and you’re gonna like it……or else.
With the release of their second album M.I., these repeat offenders are picking up right where they left off, laying down 13 tracks of polished, hook-laden power-pop that’s so catchy it’s criminal.
We music devotees spend far too much time arguing over artistic integrity purely based on arbitrary claims of ""originality"", as if it’s the end all be all to a much larger discussion. In an age where the standard music taste is drastically beginning to widen and widen, genres are beginning to spill into one another like the brush of a surrealist painter, and tiny micro-evolutions/niches in sound pop-up every year (thank you internet culture!), unclassifiability and anti-consensus rule. So why is there such a cold shoulder to those who enjoy updated sounds from the past? This question instantly popped into my head upon listening to Maston's debut album, as images of psychedelic's late 60s blossom began to float through my ears and into my head (while the sound was still relatively cute and innocent sounding, just before it got all blown up and over-saturated by whirling guitar-on-fire solos).
Opening with a choppy organ line and a vintage set of dusty baroque instrumentation emulating 60s suburban drive-in film credits, Shadows wastes no time in taking us back to the past with a sugary, flamboyant gesture on the opener “Strange Rituals”. A mix of Pet Sounds sunshine, thick Sgt. Pepper sky, and twirling Binki Bottom clouds dissolve into ""(You Were) in Love"", a surfy polka dot pill ensuring a short but heavenly trip through a whimsical rainbow. The trip gets a little cloudy on ""Messages"", a suspenseful Apocalypse Now gun slingin' sunset pop crooner lost in a pitch black silhouette. Meanwhile the hazy pop nugget ""Looks"" sways around in a moody diner, somewhere out in the mountains. Like a smoggy daydream waterfall, ""Young Hearts"" pours out a misty up-tempo psych hook, elegant pop evaporation like Bradford Cox crooning under a Beach Boys single.
Further evidence of Maston's modern influence point to the absolutely gorgeous ""Judge Alabaster"", guided by banging percussion like a horse sprinting off in the distance, with a lush americana harmony floating in the wind, similar to the folky atmospheres of Grizzly Bear. So once again I ask the question, why such a cold shoulder to those who enjoy updated sounds from the past? Clearly Maston borrow heavily from the pop sonics of The Beach Boys and The Beatles in order to create a retro-esque vibe splattered throughout the album, but carefully injected into their nostalgic world is appropriate modern influence, tropical exotica-laced hi-fi, lush instrumentals worthy of film-score, and irresistible, catchy hooks. It's a short burst of ten infectious, ultra-nostalgic pop songs that rarely pass the three minute mark, but no matter if recorded in 1967 or 2013, Shadows makes for some damn fine pop music in any generation.
You know MATT from the PIZZAS, ZODIAC KILLERS, and many more projects of note. This here is MKS's first LP and it's all the raw nugs collected from his various home recordings that Matt had been doing and then (awesomely of him) sending over to Tic Tac Totally over the last couple of years. His first vinyl release since his initial burst of three 7-inches (one on TTT, and two on Plastic Idol) in 2008. Since then TTT had been in touch for an LP that was carved up nicely from his first 35 song CDR, and then while recording that material, his ADD got the best of him and Matt wrote another 50-60 other new songs, all of which were sent over the years, pen pal style. Long story short, every demo clinched it deeper into "holy shit" territory. The songs were often far too good to leave as "demos" on a few folks dashboards. And Matt's home-recorded stuff always leaves a cool fingerprint from the demo takes anyway which works with it not against it almost always. Gone Ashtray features a solid collection of those demos all nicely mastered for vinyl. Edition of 300 copies on assorted colored vinyl with screened jackets by KEEGAN. Includes an insert with info and song notes by MKS.
When you say Belleville, IL, non-locals usually assume it's one of the zillion Chicago suburbs. It's far from it. Just a few miles across the Mississippi from St. Louis, it's another small, river town. In the late '70s, punk barely happened in St. Louis. Except for Max Load, it didn't even get noticed in Belleville. The river provides far more isolation between the states than one may realize. Bitter geographic rivals for no good reason. That didn't stop these guys from making a noise on their side.Max Load was formed and began playing live shows around Belleville in 1978. They soon were playing in St. Louis as well, but they never would be treated as equals. They were often forced to play first, before much less competent bands, or dead last, when the St. Louis crowd was anxious to get to the after-party. Last often meant playing to an empty room, rather than being the coveted headlining spot. Out shining most of the Missouri bands around at the time, they released a scorching two song 45 ("X-Rod" b/w "Magazine Sex") in 1979 on their own label. It was mostly intended as a calling card to secure gigs, but some copies were sold locally and a few even distributed by Bomp! Records in CA. The band would go on to record studio demos in 1980 at the request of Epic Records and would commit countless songs to tape with their own 4-track recorder. They were also the only punk band in the area to pay attention to and be featured on the short-lived cable access TV show, Street Beat.Although Max Load started out with a fairly traditional punk sound, by 1981 they started writing more post punk and art punk influenced material. This new direction can be heard on the included 4-track demos. Like so many other bands, they never got that record deal or big break they were hoping for. By late 1982, most members had moved on to new projects and the band was gone by 1983. It would be another ten or so years before their record would be compiled on the Killed By Death bootleg compilation series and they’d get some much deserved recognition outside the area. The 45 is now considered one of the best Midwestern punk singles of the era, and a copy with the picture sleeve is one of the rarest U.S. punk collectibles.The Max Load release is comprised of all studio recordings from 1979-1983. The X-Rod 45 is included, along with 22 never-before-released 8-track and 4-track demos. The package includes a 14 song LP, a 24 song CD and a DVD that features a 20-song live performance, recorded for cable access TV in 1981. The CD and DVD come with a title card in a protective sleeve that's tucked inside the LP jacket, along with a double sided 11"x17" insert featuring numerous photos, gig posters and extensive liner notes.
Metralletas Lecheras are a mixture of Arabics, Celts,Irish and Moroccan who came to burn the cathedral and were left to eat.In their songs talk about what they are and where they are from,sometimes even would like to be,exactly as bravús and mods.They use subtly a musical and esthetic ambiguity:too much rednecks for the modern,too much modern for the rednecks.They embody the"I come here for fun and eat a good grilled meat",much more important than public approval.If they fell good and confortable,you will be caught in agonized skrieks or tiki-exotic dances.
MIDNITE SNAXXX is comprised of three of the loveliest, toughest, punkest ladies in existence.

Musically you get dreams-do-come-true Real Kids-Kidda Band-Ramones-Teenage Head-Donny Denim-early Donnas-Style Power Pop Punk.
Another year, another Mind Spiders album. The garage punk project from Mark Ryan is becoming an annual affair after he disbanded his original act, The Marked Men, in 2010. The basic two-chord approach of the Men became limiting for Ryan, so he began adding synths and sci-fi lyrics to his songs, and Mind Spiders was born. The project’s debut and last year’s Meltdown toe the line between post-punk and Jay Reatard-inspired rock ‘n’ roll. Ryan’s musical aesthetics effectively reflected his lyrical conceits, but his songwriting could get repetitious with its minimal chord progressions and lack of distinct melodies.
That’s why Inhumanistic is a decisive album for Ryan. Like a ballplayer in his contract year, this was his chance to undo the faults of his previous records, to seize his fan base, to open up. It was imperative for Ryan to bring something new and different with Inhumanistic, and the A-side convinces you that he has.
Opening salvo “Inside You” and “Suicide” are hit-and-run punk songs with bouncy synths, right in Ryan’s wheelhouse. But, his voice sounds different — it has more color. His melodies have more twists and turns, his words remain bizarre and paranoid. On “They Lie”, Ryan even shows off some inspired lead guitarwork, bridging the chorus and verse with a nasty lick. He then croons to a drum machine on the lovely “City Stuff”. No Mind Spiders song has ever been described as “lovely,” but it certainly fits here.
Each record has been better than the last, Ryan clearly improving steadily as a songwriter. The heavier second half of Inhumanistic, while not as diverse and rewarding as the first four tracks, shows this growth. He slows down the constant Ramones two-chord onslaught, obscures his vocals in fuzz, and builds an atmosphere around his tales of strange love and extraterrestrials, justifying an extension to that contract.
The Second album from MARK RYAN’s (MARKED MEN, HIGH TENSION WIRES) MIND SPIDERS, and it's a Meltdown, alright. This is a very different beast from the s/t Mind Spiders LP released just 13 months ago. The most obvious difference is that while the s/t LP was recorded piecemeal, with Mark more-or-less playing all the instruments, Meltdown is the first Mind Spiders recordings to feature the full live band. And what a band it is: members of THE BAD SPORTS, High Tension Wires, Marked Men, UPTOWN BUMS, etc etc. The fact that there are two drummers (MIKE from the Marked Men and GREG from The High Tension Wires both play drums at the same time) gives alot of these songs a rhythmic complexity that sets the songs apart from a lot of other "garagey" type bands. Loosely organized like the first LP, with the more straightforward, rocking stuff on side A and the weird curveball stuff on side B, Meltdown, while remarkably cohesive, blends a lot of different elements: Great sounding guitar tones. Happy, warm organ. Mean, buzzing synth. 60's pop sensibilities. Snotty garage rockers. Dark, brooding postpunk. Weirdo sci-fi soundtrack stuff. Nods to Krautrock.
After four singles (“Common Shell”, “Boys and Girls”, “Lie” and the 2012 single on Bachelor, called “Rainbow”) that sold out in a flash, an album for one of the most prestigious power-pop labels already in its second pressing, raving reviews on both sides of the Atlantic, two US tours and lots of dates all across Europe, Miss Chain & The Broken Heels are once again among us.
We had left them with “A Bittersweet Ride”, the LP which was released two years ago on Screaming Apple / Burger / Sonic Jett Records. Two years of relentless touring and personal change. Miss Chain was then singing about being 25 years old and the bittersweet thoughts and preoccupations that come with such an age. Now, two years later, the girl has become a woman: this journey has finally seen the light of dawn, it has changed its nature, turned into a rite of passage. Her thoughts have become a stream of introspection that is equal parts light and darkness, reason and spirituality, demons and hopes. Following this transformation, the music itself has changed, pushing the melodies beyond the usual rock ’n’roll/garage blueprint, such as we were used to.
“The Dawn” stems from the common effort of the band together with producer Pierluigi Ballarin (The R’s) at T.U.P. Studio in Brescia (Italy). Two weeks of live recordings on tape to capture the joy of experimenting in a studio yielded a perfect blend of warm, thick and surrounding sound: it is a complex record that deploys a vast array of sounds, so deep that sometimes you find yourself drifting away with your eyes closed, totally immersed in a mixture of country, rhythm’n’blues, pop and Beatles-esque melodies, surrounded by dreamy landscapes, sometimes even bordering on psychedelia. References to Sixties melodies and sunshine pop are the ideal framing for a record whose sound and content is at the same moment timeless and steeped in the contemporary, the soundtrack to an internal journey which contemplates life and its baggage but it’s not afraid of its dark corners.
It will be an intense 2013 for Astrid, Silva, Franz and Brown: USA, Canada, Japan are waiting for them at the end of the summer, while starting in March they will travel extensively through Italy and Europe to promote their new record in the best way they can: by being on a stage, in front of their audience, spreading their energy through their music and, even if for a little while, taking you along for the ride.
Fuck yeah! There’s nothing new or innovative here, and there really doestn’t fucking need to be. This is 100 % pure D-beat in all of its slightly sloppy, raw glory with a singer who sounds remarkably like the late Kawakami (DISCLOSE, of course). He recording may actually be a little too clean for my taste, but if your crank the bass and listen to is as loud as possible, it sounds good. As far as the style goes, MOBCHARGE is more in line with second-wave bands like DISGUST and DISASTER both in their lack solos and the relative shortness of the songs. Nice Lyrical nods to CONFLICT and SORE THROAT as well, My only complaint is the way obvious Photoshop work that’s all over layout. What’s wrong with good ol’ cut ‘n’ paste (AU)....

Shortly after their „Excessive“ 7“ release all you lucky beer drinkers can fill up your horns & pogo the shit outta your mind to the new 10-Hit-Slab’o’Modern Pets. By the way here is no place for certain band recommendations anymore. Now MODERN PETS is the reference.
This 2nd full-length mainly recorded by Bretzel Göring, mixed by Christoph Bartelt and mastered by Daniel Husayn is a smokin’ gun of new wave hipstershitpunk. Keeping all the tried-and-trusted snotty features of the past this platter kicks harder, grooves deeper and even pops catchier. Walk-along to pushing basslines from the hip, powerful and neck breaking drum beats are building a solid fundament and the premium-sound of the guitar parts is sharper than the straight razor at your favourite Turkish barbershop in Berlin-Xberg.
Finally the whole thing is speeding its way direct into your brain and file under timeless masterpiece. Now it’s on you to jump the fence and quickly save your copy. Oh well: Go! See them live!
REISSUE.An errant project of suburban Los Angeles art collective World Imitation Productions, MONITOR was the sonic outlet of four young artists grappling with their terror and amazement in the convergence of the late 1970s punk scene and Southern California's consumerist decadence.
As with the collective's visual artwork and events, MONITOR blends archaic influences with modern technology into one of the era's most curious albums. Eerie synthesizer, menacing guitar leads and morose vocal chants make ""In Terrae Interium"" an evocative ballad of paranoia. ""I Saw Dead Jim's Shade"" showcases MONITOR's idiosyncratic vocal interplay in a sinister tale of a stolen hand. When ""Hair"" required a tempo beyond MONITOR's instrumental chops, the band appropriated THE MEAT PUPPETS to record the track for them. Acquainted at first through mail art, World Imitation found a kindred spirit in DEVO associate Ed Barger, who meticulously recorded this LP in 1980, burying the presence of shrieking cats, closing doors and tape loops deep in the mix.
MONITOR associated with the original Hollywood punk scene but often met with ambivalence for their incongruity in the face of the movement's increasingly codified appearance and sound. Loosely aligned with like-minded pioneers such as NERVOUS GENDER, HUMAN HANDS, BPEOPLE and NON, who together constituted the sub-scene known as the Associated Skull Bands, MONITOR operated in its own space within a progressive, diverse musical milieu. Few groups so deftly encapsulate the existential dread and delight particular to Southern California's antiquated culture of artifice.
""MONITOR's debut album, a compendium of mutant amplified folk tunes is the best local release I've heard all year."" – Matt Groening, L.A. Reader, 1981
10" - De Moon Unit podríamos decir que hacen power pop, pero del reflexivo, como demuestran en la intensa "Insincere", o la directa pero estudiada, "I’m alive", sin renunciar por ello a las melodías básicas pero adictivas y a la frescura y color que mantienen en temas como "Shine". Ellos, dicen ser el resultado de un mix entre una buena dosis de rock, pop y punk bien triturado y, si por todo esto entendemos también a Paul Weller, puede que no se equivoquen, ya que en él parecen tener a su principal gurú y referencia. Sin duda, un buen guía espiritual cuyas lecciones han sabido interiorizar y llevar a su propio terreno.
D-beat Crust al mas puro estilo Sueco. Version de Totalitar incluida.
Great reissue of the 2nd album made in 1987 by this legendary Garage band based in San Diego, sold out for many years and really sought after!
Now available again on blue vinyl in a limited edition of 500 handnumbered copies and in a Cd digipack edition, both include rare photos, flyers & liner notes by Leighton!!
From the Leighton's liner notes:
<... this for me is one of the more interesting ""Morlocks"" albums. Note that ""Ted Friedman"" was replaced by ""Jordan Tarlow"" (Outta Place, Fuzztones) on guitar for personal reasons. On this record we started to experiment with more original songs trying things other than the basic garage formula of Three chords, for example, ""My friend the Bird"", ""Different World"", ""Black Box"", even Soul, IE: ""Get Out Of My Life Woman"">
From the mean sour streets of Ottawa, Canada comes the second full length of MOTHER'S CHILDREN aptly entitled: LEMON! 12 new tracks of stompy and glammy powerpop with that old wham-a-lam-bam-thanks-ma'am attitude that we're used to from those four mouseketeers. Get your fix of Vitamin MC from the sweetest fruit that grows in Canada.
Reissue of the first album from 1993 of these veterans of the East German punk-scene (founded in 1980!). Great hard 77-influenced punk-rock with catchy choruses!
lp comes with a really nice printed envelope and green vinyl
the debut lp by California's mighty MUNDO MUERTO! Retaining the melody of the
earlier 7"" and 12"" eps but with a harder, faster edge this lp is by far MM's
best material to date. 11 tracks of pure hardcore punk greatness. From the build
up on the first track to the last note this smokes all the way through!!!! The Spanish vocals only add to the amazingness of this lp and all the ""whoa"" parts
will have you singing along even if you dont speak the language.This is some absolutely raging punk in the Spanish tradition, equally influenced by more melodic bands like Eskorbuto and RIP and the more raw bands. What you get is basic, four-the-floor hardcore with catchy as fuck, whoa-soaked vocals over the top of it. This thing is jam-packed to the hilt with hooks... fans of Vaaska and Peligro Social will dig HARD. Catch the Histeria!!!
REISSUE.MX-80 SOUND is one of the real oddities in American music. Their debut album, Hard Attack (released in the UK on Island Records), found little-to-no audience in the States upon its release in 1977, yet remains a key document of the mid-'70s proto-punk zeitgeist. Hailing from Bloomington, Indiana, MX-80 SOUND is lead by guitarist Bruce Anderson and defies simple classification with relentless riffs, dual drummers and vocalist Rich Stim's absurdist prose and dizzying sax. Assimilating the avant-rock of Captain Beefheart and conjuring the ghosts of Albert Ayler, MX-80 SOUND evokes what free jazz would sound like if born in Bloomington.
As archivist Byron Coley writes, ""Hard Attack has long been considered one of the great squirts of the Midwest underground's prog-punk tradition. Fellow travelers include DEBRIS' Static Disposal, PERE UBU's Modern Dance and DESTROY ALL MONSTERS' 1974-1976, and what makes each of these fine gushers unique is that they were all created in virtual isolation. No one else in the neighborhood was creating anything akin to them.""
Superior Viaduct is honored to present Hard Attack's first-ever vinyl edition in the US. Mastered from the original analog tapes for the first time since 1977 and remixed by the band, this deluxe reissue will soon become the definitive version for longtime fans and newcomers alike. The singular and staggering innovation of MX-80 SOUND still harkens to rock's future potential.
The Name formed in the late 70's from the ashes of two of Peterborough’s best loved Punk Rock combos - The Gobblinz and The Now. Switching to a more ‘Mod’ friendly sound and now with new singer Ben the band signed a 5 album, 2 single deal with Virgin’s ‘Dindisc’ label, but only released one single in 1980 - the spectacular ‘Forget Art Let’s Dance’. The guys gigged relentlessly starting off supporting ‘The Purple Hearts’, and when their live appeal became evident, being supported by ‘The Purple Hearts’ - they also headlined the famous ‘Marquee’ club and supported ‘The J Geils Band’ on their UK tour. The band’s smart dress and powerful Mod sound led to them being loved by the fans and hailed by the fanzines of the time as one of the most promising acts on the circuit.
Well, you all know the story by now - by the mid 80's the scene went into decline and no-one wanted to know about Mod bands so the group split leaving just one single.....
Until now! Yep - on this ‘ere release we’re giving you the full Monty - everything the band EVER recorded in a studio PLUS live tracks that show us why they were so popular as a gigging band.
We get their first ever demo tracks, a previously unreleased and uncensored version of the ‘Forget Art...’ single (replace ‘Forget’ with a spicy four-letter word...), demo tracks recorded at Richard Branson’s famous ‘Manor’ studios, their second single that only ever got to ‘test-pressing’ stage and live tracks from Huddersfield and Middlesbrough (check out the fight that breaks out mid-song at the Middlesbrough gig - and the DJ’s reaction when the band go off the stage!!!)
This is raw, honest and powerful music - real Soul inspired, Punk fuelled Mod that can only have been written, recorded and released in the heady days of 1979 - 1980.
How many current bands try to sound unique and outstanding, especially like the kind of pop music that NEEDLES//PINS are playing? We’re talking about awesome snotty power pop laced punk rock from Vancouver / Canada.
NEEDLES//PINS start where White Wires, Gentleman Jesse, Young Governor and others leave off and take their really own incredible song craft at work here – all instantly likable and infinitely memorable. It’s unique and outstanding in a serious way!
For everyone who loves jams catchy as fuck: NEEDLES//PINS are just what you needed. The “Shamebirds” LP will make the coldest, loneliest and most boring of days fun and crazy again. The songs circle somewhere between mid-period Replacements, Selling the Sizzle-era Smugglers, The Hives’ “incredibly famous for a minute” stint and ‘70s/’80s Canadian power pop punk (Pointed Sticks / Teenage Head) and you’d be close. It’s just awesome!
Please go out and catch them on their upcoming European Tour with their friends from Sonic Avenues and see two of the best power pop / punk bands at their boiling point. So haul your ass out of your easy chair and get this one!
As the name suggests the band are straight out of Sweden not from Bradford (or should that be ‘Not From London’?) 11 tracks of full on Rancid before they got shit style streetpunk with a poem to kick things off. Othen than the poem this album kicks in like a ecstasy rush and will have you jumping around all the way to the last track, which is a tribute to the late John Peel. All the songs are in English and the cd booklet has all the lyrics so late night sing a longs are possible. I particularly liked the track ‘Greatest Punk Rock Rip Off’ a song about bands who get back together with one original member for the money, a subject I’m sure a lot of you reading this know about. One of the best albums I’ve heard in a long time and a band I will be looking out for in the future.
Great LA Punk with female vocals.
Compilation LP of Neighborhood Brats' first 3 releases: Neighborhood Brats EP
We Own the Night 7"" Ocean Beach Party 7"" +2 unreleased studio tracks.
2xLP.At last! A comprehensive double LP featuring one of the most important bands of the Northwest punk scene—THE NEO BOYS. Active for 5 years (1978-1983) teenage sisters KT (bass) and KIM KINCAID (vocals), PAT BAUM (drums) and guitarists JENNIFER LABIANCO and MEG HENGTES created some of the most melodic, creative and daring punk music of the period and helped forge a place for women in the growing pink music scene. CALVIN JOHNSON has been working with band members to track down the missing tapes of their recordings through the rabbit hole of Northwest basements and closets, and after 20 years of effort, the results are this LP. These recording span from 1977-1982, including the long out of print 1980 7" EP (released on Trap Records) and 1982 self released EP Crumbling Myths. Sooner or later also contains many early demos and live sessions that have never been released until now. Includes liner notes. A must for fans of the Wipers, Slits, Raincoats and Dead Moon. Co-release with K Records.
An anthology of mid to late 70s studio recordings, some of which ended up on the Nervebreakers' late-70's 7" vinyl releases on Wild Child Records, some on the 1979 Texas punk LP compilation Are We Too Late For The Trend? (ESR Records), some on a volume of Italian label Rave Up Records series of American Lost Punk Rock Nuggets, and others that have up-to-now never been publicly released. Includes the original (and best) hit recording of "My Girlfriend Is A Rock", the title anthem "Hijack The Radio", and punk classics like "Why Am I So Flipped?", "I Wanna Kill You", and "I Love Your Neurosis". Also included are proto-punk psych-y gems like "My Life Is Ruined" and "Beyond The Borderline".
If you’re in kaiju-films there is Ghidrah and Cerberus is well-known not only to mythology-experts…but P.Trash is still your trusted record label. So, don’t fuss folks! This might be the one you’re looking for: a three-headed monster of punk named NERVOSAS.
The story so far as you already know it: P.Trash scout Rob / STATUES saw the band at Ottawa Explosion 2012 and wrote us about a new fabulous band from NEW BOMB TURKS-Town Columbus, Ohio. We here at P.Trash can't believe how great they are. I never had this feeling again since I heard the SEDATIVES - ''Slip away'' song or the Statues – “New People Make Us Nervous” 12”!!!
About the record: A compilation with new recorded versions of songs already known from the beloved demo-releases. Now with enough punch & crunch for proper 12” vinyl-outfit fixed into classy cover plus inlay, artwork and music all done by the band. Quite accurate what you might expect from a young, enthusiastic DIY punk band’s debut LP. 11 bangers…like 11 ender enders in a way dark, anxious, paranoid, manic, obsessive, melodic, misanthropic, gothy, punk. A lot of bands ""WIPERS, SEDATIVES, X, DEAD MOON..."" and influences are forcing on, so that’s how brains are working and doesn’t really matter. No kidding, the plainly audible fact all along the record: it’s not whoever, this is NERVOSAS giving you such a grinding and thrilling roller coaster ride makes the difference. These songs ooze talent and precision, ranging from break-neck hardcore skate punk tempos to a few mellow rockers to surprise ya just when you think you got it all figured out. Don't sleep on this!!!
It’s been two years since the debut long player from Night Birds, a record which cemented the band's infectious punk/surf sound into the ears of many a discerning music fan, bringing the sound of the 1980s SoCal scene, mixed with hints of the Dead Kennedys and a good dose of the here and now, raging out of speakers all across the world. To be fair that album, The Other Side of Darkness, was pretty damn good and set the bar at quite a high level as to what Night Birds were capable of achieving, so any follow up had a lot to live up to.
It’s now 2013 and Born To Die In Suburbia basically smashes that bar into smithereens as Night Birds, fully charged and slightly revamped with a new guitarist, take a similar musical approach, but one which now sounds as if it a definite trademark of Night Birds rather than being an amalgam of any combination of different influences. This doesn’t really come as a surprise, as the taster for the album which came in the form of a four track 7-inch, containing one song off the album in “Maimed for the Masses” which clearly displayed in an openly brazen way that the band had somehow stepped up its game.
Born To Die In Suburbia announces itself with the ballsy punk/surf instrumental “Escape From New York,” continuing the band’s love of old horror/sci-fi movie references and once over, the title track wastes no time in showing the band off in all their glory with a rampaging delivery that knocks my senses all over the place. The song nicely encapsulates the possibility of not really achieving much in life, marooned in a suburban wasteland that can so easily stifle a person’s whole life, if allowed.
The band do shift around the speed a bit throughout the album, although there is no clanking of gears between tracks as they’re equally adept at the mid-paced tracks as they are when they’re working hammer and tongs to reach the end of a song. Further variation is also heard on “Less The Merrier” where there is a quite a thick, metal-like opening riff that leads into a mid to slow-paced song, showing that Night Birds really can deliver more measured tuneage without any loss in excellence; this track has qualities that bring to mind D.I.’s “Richard Hung Himself” in that it has quite a menacing sound. The song is themed around how it’s not always that great at Christmas time; a period of the year renowned for a high suicide rate due to the loneliness that many feel during the festive season.
Born to Die in Suburbia really does contain some great songs, with a distinct lack of filler across the fourteen featured here. Even though “Maimed for the Masses” is one of my initial favourites, it is easily matched by the likes of “Modern Morons,” “Nazi Gold” and “Villa Obscura” as well as the title track — but to be fair I should just copy the track listing here as all of those songs are essential to listen to.
2013 is proving to be a year full of quality releases and Born To Die In Suburbia is definitely a rip snorting classic for this and many other years to come.
Yup that's right, we've been talking about this record for the better part of 2011 and now we couldn't be more thrilled to announce that "The Other Side of Darkness," the debut LP from NIGHT BIRDS, is now available for preorder! I think by now it's safe to say that NIGHT BIRDS need no introduction, so you should know what to expect from these NY/NJ boys ... they pulled out all of the stops on this LP and are very excited that it will soon be available for mass consumption.
NFB appartenait à la tendance la plus dure, la plus punk, la plus désespérée de ce rock émergeant des années soixante dix. Nous voulions tout faire sauter. Nous vivions dans nos ghettos HLM, ayant pour la plupart d'entre nous le même avenir que nos parents. Le travail à la chaîne dans l'industrie automobile, moi-même j'y travaillais déjà.
Les différents médias s'emparèrent du phénomène punk rock, le propulsant sous leurs projecteurs. L'onde de choc fracassa tout devant elle. Enfants du rock et des cités ghettos posées ça et là, soumises à l'industrie locale, regroupés dans nos sarcophages de béton, nous sommes entrés en guerre à travers la culture punk. Cette semence ne pouvait que croître dans le terreau industriel montbéliardais. Tous les ingrédients étaient réunis pour qu'une génération, la mienne, s'engouffre dans la brèche. Nous entrions de plein pied dans l'instant T, marqués à jamais par cette nouvelle culture. Elle restera, par la révolution qu'elle a générée, la vague la plus innovante de ses trente dernières années, influençant toutes les couches de la société et les créateurs du monde entier substitués aujourd'hui par du copyright ou des produits dérivés. Ce fut aussi une explosion créative positive pour tous, à travers ce patchwork de looks personnalisés où chacun pouvait se construire une identité caractérisée.
Nous surfions sur l'actualité, détonateur et source d'inspiration de notre ""destroy attitude"", favorisant l'éclosion embryonnaire de la guérilla urbaine qui secoue aujourd'hui les banlieues contre les spéculations foireuses du ""big business"" et de son frère ""big brother"". Vivant au jour le jour notre grisaille et nos amours, devenus malgré nous les messagers du ""no future"", fustigeant l'establishment, écorchés vifs, piqués au cœur, en chemin vers nos désillusions, nous étions les punks de la première vague, nous vivions tout cela à cent à l'heure. Notre message : ""No future for you"", héritage de la première vague punk déifiée à travers les Sex Pistols et d'autres ""fashion victims"" adeptes de la ""punkitude"". On nous surnommait les Sex Pistols français, on commençait à être interdit de concert : scandales, provoc, bastons… La mayonnaise avait pris. ""Mets tes lunettes et écoute comme ça sent bon"" : c'était notre slogan, opportuniste non ? Complètement ingérables, oui ! Nous prêchions à qui voulait l'entendre ce que nous vivions par procuration lors de nos concerts. On vociférait sur notre quotidien – c'était comme une messe où les fidèles les plus ""destroy"" accouraient.
Les NFB incarnaient un état d'esprit. Nous formions un gang, une tribu issue d'un territoire géographique qui était un ""no man's land"" dangereux pour ceux qui ne nous ressemblaient pas. Selon les besoins du moment, c'était tel ou tel bassiste qui jouait, tel ou tel chanteur qui intervenait. On a bien eu jusqu'à trois bassistes, deux guitaristes, trois chanteurs, des acteurs, intervenants du spectacle, coachs musicaux, metteurs en scène, plasticiens, etc., mais au départ comme à l'arrivée, les NFB sont deux couples : Gigi et Jimmy, Laurence et René, un bricolage impossible. Nous faisions de la résistance, bien plus encore c'était de la survie, notre combat rock. Phrasant sur notre quotidien ""sexe, drogue et rock'n'roll"", les gangs des diverses cités montbéliardaises descendaient dans l'arène qu'on leur offrait. On savait d'avance que ça allait péter.
La culture ""Kpon"" n'a fait que passer, mais tout a explosé devant elle. J'ai mis des années à m'en remettre, mais je ne regrette rien. Je me rappellerai toujours de cet enterrement d'un ami ""Kpon"". A la fin de l'homélie funèbre, dans les allées de l'église, les dealers proposaient leurs marchandises. Nous étions bien conscients que chaque fois qu'une seringue perçait nos veines, nous jouions à la roulette russe. Tous ceux qui faisaient partie de cette cour des miracles étaient des punks et des junkies, des Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde. Disciples de ce sulfureux mouvement, cassés par tous nos crève-cœurs, remplis d'un profond dégout pour toutes institutions, c'était le début des années quatre vingt. Nous vivions dans cette ambiance apocalyptique, noyés dans l'alcool, la drogue, la violence, nos délires, nos insuffisances, le chômage et la mort. C'était notre choix.
Extraits de Made in la Rue - Dégénération Punk !, René Phillips, 2009
Another Canadian addition to the TAKEN BY SURPRISE family from Edmonton Oilers town, Edmonton. After their stellar debut AND NOW THIS (Deranged / P.Trash) they deliver a sophomore LP that takes their frustrated and paranoid hardcorepunk to a new level. Still taking cues from BLACK FLAG, D.O.A. or TSOL, they add darker and more melodic elements to the mix.
""This is music for maladjusted adults who are too old to be able to relate to teenage problems, but whose feelings of alienation have in no way withered with age, and are looking for something that musically and lyrically captures the frustration of adult punk life in the same way that, say, so many ADOLESCENTS songs are a product of teen angst. One of my favorite things in the world is bands effectively fusing hardcore with catchy yet aggressive or paranoid melody, as bands like SOCIAL CIRCKLE and DEEP SLEEP have done in recent years."" - MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL
El trío gallego Nobody's Fool nos presenta su primer LP "Wintering", con 17 temas con influencias que van desde The Crack hasta Bouncing Souls. Puedes escucharlos en: http://nobodysfoolgz.bandcamp.com/
Nodzzz are Sean Paul on guitar, Anthony Atlas on bass, and Eric Butterworth on drums, with Pete Hilton as forever auxiliary drummer, now stationed in Bulgaria in the service of the Peace Corps. They're sweet dudes with an even sweeter sound, first honed on a killer single called ""(I Don't Wanna) Smoke Marijuana"" b/w ""We Are the Only Animals,"" released on Eric's Make a Mess imprint. Barely three minutes long, each side tore the face off of the last days of 2007, revealing a candy skeleton that had the Modern Lovers' teeth marks in it.
The group's self-titled debut is a grower, with ten new songs in a markedly more pop direction. You can hear the simple American pleasures of baseball, road trips and late summer within, plain as day within this record. More specifically, you can hear three guys examining where punk became something more, between notions of power pop and advanced songwriting on the Embarrassment/Big Dipper/ Pointed Sticks axis, but with the economy of the Minutemen or Beat Happening. They're in and out before you know it, having firmly planted the seeds of catchy melodies between your ears
Formed in San Francisco in 1977, NOH MERCY was comprised of only two women: Esmerelda and Tony Hotel. The band's motto was ""No Boys On Guitars"" as a reaction against male-dominated rock 'n' roll. They didn't need boys or guitars. They harnessed the angularity of DEVO, the punk/poet attitude of PATTI SMITH, and the art spectacle of ROXY MUSIC, all ground down to a minimalist core of voice and drums. Their only two previously released songs – ""No Caucasian Guilt"" and ""Revolutionary Spy"" – have long been considered essential recordings within Post-Punk/No Wave collector circles and by fans of other late 70's ""girl"" groups, such as X-RAY SPEX, THE SLITS, and THE RAINCOATS.
This album contains almost entirely unreleased material, unheard for over thirty years. Recorded by Fluxus artist and electronics genius Tommy Tadlock (TUXEDOMOON) during their peak in 1979. As prescient as bands come, NOH MERCY preceded the defiant queer rebellion of Riot Grrrl and the frenetic art minimalism of the early 21st century by decades.
Chicago is luckily a large enough city to engulf a multitude of polarizing bands, and one of the best and most ominous of the darker side of the spectrum is the powerhouse known as NONES. Originally forged as an exact opposite blueprint of the archetype female-fronted punk group, this band is a fully-BACKED female force of contention with one deranged and sufficiently blurred frontman slashing forth and breaking the stereotype into micro shards of glass you will never be able to completely pick out of your fine upholstery. As far away from the over-flogged “garage” tagged sound as possible, thereby wrecking the career opportunities of budding music critics, Nones are a riveting, throbbing, mutating single-celled organism growing fins as you read this, constantly evolving into the next life form, yet reliably antagonizing with each live performance. As their two 7″ EPs had first signaled within their soiled grooves, this debut LP is an anthropomorphic anomaly of audio art, shedding it’s skin and eating it’s young between pummeling chord changes, it grasps at the real desperation and de-evolution around us all, churning all that bad karma into a screaming wall of damaged reality. Edition of 400 copies.
Compartido en formato 12 pulgadas por los berlineses The Not Amused, la mezcla perfecta entre los Jam y los Toy Dolls, y nuestros X-Prays, con su punk KBD con toques escandinavos y preciosas voces femeninas, este disco es una verdadera maquina de hacer pogo.
2xLP.Espero sinceramente que te guste esta nueva edición del sello. Lleva mucho trabajo detrás y una fortuna invertida también. Ambos discos han sido cuidadosamente remasterizados para la ocasión y prensados como es debido. La carpeta doble viene con las fundas interiores impresas con la portada de cada disco, las letras de las canciones por primera vez y mogollón de fotos no publicadas hasta ahora.
A finales de los ochenta, el furioso Punk vasco (de estallido tardío respecto a Madrid o Barcelona, pero de impacto y repercusión mucho mayores), una vez pasada la reconversión RRV, había terminado en manos de grupos mayormente mediocres, cortados por un patrón de indigencia estética, autocomplacencia lírica y musical, desastrosos conciertos etílicos y, en definitiva, cutrez. En medio de este panorama, en 1987 irrumpe La Perrera.
La crítica especializada los amó desde el principio, el público tardó más en aceptarlos (demasiado rockeros para la punkarrada, definitivamente punks para los jevis, y un ruido infernal para el resto), pero poco a poco fueron congregando su propia parroquia.
La herencia de La Perrera era más americana que británica, y además de adaptar referencias punks que en aquel momento nadie usaba y pocos conocían (intenta listar cuántos grupos versioneaban el Sonic Reducer de los Dead Boys antes de que lo hiciesen ellos, y cuántos la han tocado después), también mostraban querencia por el Hard-Rock clásico, el Glam, y el Pre-Punk (Thin Lizzy, Rory Galagher, Alice Cooper, Dictators, Stooges). Eran, ante todo, fans de la música, “presumían” de una cultura musical extensísima, y reivindicaban grupos menores con exquisitez de coleccionista. Su estética, de carácter vintage y mitómana, no era forzada, pero sí consciente. Sus letras, muy personales, odas alienadas de individualismo y autoafirmación, suponían una excitante novedad entre el analfabetismo en inglés y los sobados clichés carentes ya de convicción. Y, por supuesto, su demoledora puesta en escena, sin apenas pausas entre temas, marcaba un antes y un después en todo aquel que asistiese a uno de sus conciertos. Todos estos aspectos se fueron acentuando, expandiendo y/o refinando cuando, una vez desaparecida La Perrera, los hermanos Arturo y Gonzalo Ibáñez fundaron junto a Julen Atorrasagasti y Jorge Reboredo (ambos ex-Barrakos) y Arturo Zumalabe (ex-Hondakin), Nuevo Catecismo Católico. Y son, desde entonces, elementos inherentes en todos los grupos Punk/Rock’n’Roll underground.
Sería exagerado atribuir únicamente a NCC la paternidad de una escena que consume sin prejuicios distintos estilos de música Punk, Hard-Rock o Heavy Metal, y que se interesa por investigar la historia del Rock’n’Roll. Grupos australianos, americanos, y más tarde escandinavos, ahondaron en ese enfoque, y gozaron, lógicamente, de mayor predicamento. Pero NCC estaban y hacían eso antes, y fueron “Nuevo Catecismo Católico” y “En Llamas”, y sobre todo, los directos de una banda que en veinte años de trayectoria no ha dado UN SÓLO CONCIERTO MALO, los principales responsables de la existencia de demasiados grupos como para enumerarlos, y de la transformación de toda la escena rockera underground española.
El implacable paso del tiempo (esa gran obsesión del principal letrista del grupo, Gonzalo), no se ha atrevido a tocar los dos primeros elepés de Nuevo Catecismo Católico, colocándolos en el lugar que merecen: el de los Clásicos. Son dos excelentes, excepcionales, extraordinarios, discos de Punk-Rock. En cualquier contexto (vasco, español, mundial). Quienes perdimos el juicio cuando fueron publicados, seguimos sintiendo esa detonación en el estómago que se expande en carne de gallina y pelos de punta, al escucharlos hoy. Habrá otras maneras de quitarse veinte años de encima (al menos durante lo que dura una canción), pero no serán tan divertidas.

Melancholy singalong punk. Combines the darker and more experimental aspects of bands like the Dead Kennedys and WARSAW & other late 70’s UK art punk with the anthemic choruses of LA’s Youth Brigade yet sounding nothing like any of those bands. Put these guys on a bill with the Stitches, Geisha Girls, Manikin and the Distraction and the art punks will go nuts!
Got a mail from a friend to check out this band, was addicted a minute later and had a record deal the same afternoon! Thank god for the internet, even so you can't punch people through it!! Including MAASTER GAIDEN Members, this band sounds like a Perfect Cocktail made out of 2/3 Hex Dispensers and 1/3 Marked Men. How the Hell can you not end up on the floor of the bar totally wasted yet still asking for your glasses (stereo!) to be filled over and over again?? I like my drugs..and this is one of them!!!!! But as always, please don't give a flying fök about the stuff this German idiot brabbles, take a listen at:
The latest full-length from this long-running Scottish Anarchopunk band, this time all the lyrics are in Gaelic
Out On A Limb are from Germany and play slightly-slower-than-mid-tempo post punk. The band claim Joy Division as an influence, which I hear a little bit, but the danceable drum parts remind me of the Cure for some reason. The feel of the record itself leans more towards bands like Heroin/Unwound/other early ‘90s Gravity Records offerings, but the post punk influences creep up and become a lot more apparent at times, which makes the listening experience more interesting. The vocals are clean and sort of just hint at melody, and fit in well with the music. I kept feeling that the vocals sounded a lot like another band I couldn’t place until I decided that the accent just reminded me a lot of the Peacocks. The production on the whole record is very subdued, which fits the sound, and the mixing is excellent.
10""-This release ""was supposed to be our first lp but the label folded"" or something like that... WHAT???????? GREAT!!! Giving RED LOUNGE RECORDS a chance to transform this shabby lo-fi-cheapo production into a 10"" in deluxe gatefold cum-piss-bloodstain proof laminated RED LOUNGE RECORDS STYLE cover! OUTDOORSMEN are San Francisco's reigning kings of 'don't give a fuck' garage-punk. On this 10"" here more aggressive then ever!
P A R T Y !!!!!
- Ultra Deluxe 10"" ""RED LOUNGE RECORDS STYLE"" Gatefold
Muy buen Street Punk ingles al estilo clásico de Cock Sparrer o Business.

Pelle Miljoona's 2nd album back on vinyl!
Pelko Ja Viha (Fear & Anger) is the bands debut album and was released in spring of 1979 at Love Records. The album has been recorded at Love Studiossa early 1979 in Reino Isoaho. Before the album was titled Pelle Miljoona & 1980, the band performed under the name Pelle Miljoona & 1978 and Pelle Miljoona & 1979. The album cover image has two different versions. CD's and some vinyls had on the cover a picture of where Pelle Miljoonan's eyes are twisted and Tumppi Varonen which had a million facial expressions, well I never seen this. The vinyl's first edition covers were laminated, so the rumors. Anyway, fact is: Pelko Ja Viha is one of the most famous albums of the early 80's and is still hot alongside the motorway. The song 'Enää Itkeä Voit' is a Finnish cover version of Bob Dylan's 'Like a Rolling Stone' and is very cool played. I'm not a fan of Dylan, I mean he wrote good songs but he can't sing and so it's good when a band pick up one and interpreted this in their own way. This album was recorded by Pelle Miljoona (drums & vocals), Tumppi Varonen (drums & vocals), Ari Taskinen (bass) and Rubberduck Jones (guitars). Very good album by Helsinki's melody virtuoso's and they really turns me on.
The Peoples Temple have righteously returned with a sliver of their next wave, and with the anxiously awaited follow-up to their debut LP ‘Sons of Stone,’ we have a band on our hands here with their heads clearly going in the right direction. The Lansing, Michigan snarlers have constructed their sophomore LP, ‘More For The Masses,’ with a taste of what they’ve been working on since their last outing, and it’s got us seething with excitement to share it with the world. The new songs show a bold advance in the songwriting structure, with intricate arrangements, incredibly diverse new directions not far off from the pioneering material spurned forth from the iconic 60s band Love. We’re talking flashes of primitive baroque pop and British ‘Fading Yellow’-style songs, albeit not absent of their illustrious fuzz guitar flourishes we’ve all come to love and expect, laid on thick. ‘More For The Masses’ is a perfect example of what Peoples Temple do best, a direct shot to the dome of perfect rock’n roll snarl, classic pop, head-expanding fuzz, those two-part vocal harmonies, and an ever-compelling riff that takes you over the edge and back within minutes. Peoples Temple have built on their unusual knack for crafting original pop music sounding like it’s been stripped out of the ashes of time, only to emerge with some of the most creatively exciting sounds coming out of the Midwest in years.
A band built on the rare structure of TWO sets of songwriting brothers is groundbreaking enough in it’s own right (can you think of any other band made up of two sets of brothers that all compose?), but their ability to crank out awe-inspiring classic songs at such a rapid clip is making our heads spin over here, and we can’t wait to unleash ‘More For The Masses’ on an unsuspecting public, destined to break the mold apart even further, and expose the raw guts of this unstoppable rollin’ machine. -Victimoftime.com

Ever since we first heard of these five angry young men from Spain, we badly wanted them to be part of the 'Screaming Apple Family' and now we're more than happy and honoured to present their amazing debut album 'The Real Sounds Of' as a big favour to all you kiddies out there, who still dig that crazy cavemen beat of the swingin' sixties. The PHANTOM KEYS story starts a few years back in a small Galician coastal town (O Grove) when a bunch of hairy teenage weirdos try to emulate the looks and sounds of those 'no hit wonders' who made it onto all the obscure 60's punk compilations, such as 'Nuggets', 'Pebbles' and 'Back from The Grave'. Very soon they became wellknown all over the country for their wylde & sweaty live appearances and were ready to record their first vinyl release for the way cool EL BEASTO record label. The result was the fantastic 'Velvet illusions/In the summertime' 7' single, a true little masterpiece of authentic 60's garage-punk, which turned out to be a great succes all over the globe and brought them the offers to play all the great places in Spain and Europe, some festivals in Italy and the U.K. and even the invitation to rock the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool Yeah! After some lineup changes the PHANTOM KEYS decided to go for a more rhythm'n'blues oriented sound in the tradition of bands like the PRETTY THINGS, DOWNLINERS SECT, TELL TALE HEARTS and WYLDE MAMMOTHS, but still keeping up the good ole garage-punk spirit they got famous for and recorded their second 45, 'Shut up Johnny / I want to be free', which got sold out in almost no time, just like the first one!! Now, after having played countless memorable shows all across Europe with some of the best bands around, such as The SONICS, The OUTSIDERS, the LYRES and the FUZZTONES and being part of big garage-punk extravaganzas like Le Beat Bespoke and Primitive Fest, the PHANTOM KEYS are ready to present their first album. 'The Real Sounds Of' is a hot, smokin' platter of pure sixties-punk flavoured rhythm'n'blues and proves once again impressively that the PHANTOM KEYS are one of the biggest sensations on the scene today, still being the same bunch of crazy weirdos they were in the beginning. Now comb your hair, iron your best suits and dresses, polish your boots and get ready to do the hip shake!! SCREAMING APPLE gives you The Real Sounds of THE PHANTOM KEYS!!! A raw, unadulterated teenbeat mayhem!!!
New Mod band from outta Berlin. This debut includes 6 top notch 79 Mod Revival tunes inspired by bands like The Jam,The Chords and The Squ!re. Ace power pop with tons of catchy hooks. Produced by Smail / The Shocks.
Portland, Oregon, tolerant Oregon, is having yet another supergroup taking the punk world by storm. After a debut 7" on JONNYCAT and a split with FIST CITY on DRUNKEN SAILOR, they finally spit out their first full length LP. Fronted by arguably Portland's angriest man Zachary Brooks (RED DONS, SCOTT BAIO ARMY, SODA POP KIDS) and backed by fellow PDX stalwarts Samantha (DOTTIE ATTIE, NEO BOYS, WIPERS) and Rodrigo (RED SHADOWS, POISON IDEA, AUTISTIC YOUTH) they deliver 13 snotty punk jams that tackle EVERY topic that needs to be tackled. They are the biggest band in Europe. By far.
“Evidentemente, toda vida es un proceso de descomposición” F. Scott FitzGerald
Población superflua funcionó de forma más o menos estable entre finales de 1994 y el 2000. En gran medida su existencia estuvo ligada a la del Centro Social Anarquista de Xixón, donde además de ensayar, grabar y tocar en incontables ocasiones, participaban en la asamblea, la organización de eventos, la distribución anticomercial, y en diversos colectivos y proyectos anticapitalistas…
El local estaba situado en los bajos de la casa sindical, espacio reclamado como patrimonio sindical histórico por la CNT, que finalmente negoció con el estado la propiedad privada y oficial del mismo. Esta potestad estatal fue aprovechada por la Federación Local para expulsar de malas maneras a las personas y colectivos que autogestionaban el espacio de forma autónoma y que pese a sus esfuerzos no conseguían captar ni someter a su disciplina. Hoy ese espacio continua triste e inutilizado, un panteón del placer o un monumento a la alienación ideológica, entendida la ideología como falsa conciencia de la realidad…
Volviendo al grupo, que se nos va la pinza, después de varios intentos frustrados de okupación, comienzan un periplo por locales de ensayo de alquiler y conciertos en bares, ya sin el encanto de la autogestión anticomercial…
Finalmente la supervivencia, la vida reducida a los imperativos económicos, fuerza a parte de los integrantes de la banda a desplazarse geográficamente y ya solo se volverían a reunir de forma esporádica…
De esos cinco años salieron un montón de conciertos benéficos y anticomerciales, la mayoría en Xixón, pero otros en Uvieu, Llangreu, Coruña, Torrelavega, Lasarte, Valladolid y Madrid. También varias “cutredemos” grabadas por el propio grupo con cachivaches prestados, de las cuales solo se llegó a mover una (primero en cintas “DIY-Style” y luego editada más profesionalmente por un contubernio de sellos pequeños)
Los temas de este disco son los únicos grabados en estudio, en concreto en ACME (Avilés) en mayo de 1999. En su día se iban a utilizar para un EP compartido pero el proyecto no llegó a cuajar. Se editan más de diez años después, más que nada por el propio interés de los miembros de la banda en ver su mierda plastificada en un vinilo, único formato que les produce cierta pasión y alimenta su fetichismo mórbido. Además, el espeluznante contexto sociopolítico en el que vomitaron su odio y rabia, en forma de poemas ruidosos, sigue vigente…
Para el diseño de la carpeta, tras un duro trabajo buscando entre viejos papeles amarillentos y llenos de ácaros, se consiguió recuperar una copia del collage que iba a usarse, en su día, para el disco compartido y algunos carteles y entradas de conciertos…
Respetando la filosofía de la banda, el disco se distribuirá a precio de coste y se intentará que se venda al precio más bajo posible…
Por último, dar las gracias a todas las personas, colectivos y grupos que colaboraron desinteresadamente con la banda, en especial a Escuela De Odio y Odio Visceral por seguir en activo y a todas las personas que han echado una mano para sacar esto adelante…
Este disco está dedicado a Fernan y Piñera, entre tantos otros, caídos en la batalla diaria por sobrevivir…
Viejos patéticos 2012
Los Pol Pot son de Zaragoza y son, para mi gusto, una de las mejores bandas actuales del panorama patrio. Cuando tocamos X-Prays con ellos en Zaragoza, simplemente flipé. Básicamente su sonido se basa casi todo en el rollo Punk siniestro a lo Crisis y a lo Warsaw/Joy Division (a veces demasiado calcado), pero también le meten otros matices. Matices a veces imperceptibles, muy diluidos, y en ocasiones más presentes. Por un lado, algunos temas tienen una línea de melodía más bailable, que puede emparentarles a grupos como The Cure, pero renunciando a la parte bonita y sin abandonar nunca la seriedad que impone la voz grave que recita sin compasión en medio del polo norte. Y, por otro lado, hay partes que te dejan un leve sabor a vanguardia británica 79-82 (en algunos temas más que en otros). No se parecen en concreto a ninguna de aquellas bandas, ni llegan a sus niveles deconstructivos, pero podrían haber teloneado a Pop Group, Gang of Four o PIL.
Whole mystery es un disco muy sólido, con muy buen sonido, que se tiene de pie solo. Son solo 9 temas, pero son todos muy largos. Así que, para alguien que no esté muy puesto en este estilo, escucharlo entero puede ser como inyectarse muy lentamente plomo congelado. Pero para los que adoren la marcialidad y la seriedad de Joy Division, el disco se les hará incluso corto y, por supuesto, les encantará. A mi me parece uno de los discos del momento, con una calidad excepcional que no deberías dejar escapar.(http://soloespunk.blogspot.com)
The Pop Rivets (AKA TV 21) played their first show in 1977 at Detling Village Hall, Kent. Famous for their renditions of ""Stingray"" and ""Hippy Hippy Shake"", The Pop Rivets recorded the first truly independent punk LP in 1978/9, pipping Swell Maps to the post (who's LP was actually funded by Rough Trade). The Pop Rivets, on the other hand, borrowed £300 from AKA, a friend, who had just received a year's Social Security back pay. AKA was a type of fan who hated Childish and dismissed the Pop Rivets as a bunch of art school wafters. The mystified Pop Rivets took the money anyway and set about recording the ""Greatest Hits"" LP in the front room of a bungalow in Herne Bay. (They had to stop recording for the engineers mother to watch the 6 o'clock news). The resulting LP was described in the NME as ""The youngsters as the future of rock 'n' roll"" and then nothing happened.
In 1979 The Pop Rivets embarked on two self-promoted tours of Switzerland and Germany and recorded their 2nd LP - Empty Sounds From Anarchy Ranch. Two further EP's appeared in 1980 before The Pop Rivets recorded a lost John Peel session and split up. For The Pop Rivets, punk rock had gone horribly wrong. Thatcher - Milk Snatcher was in and New Romanticism was rearing its
poesy old head. Far from being dead and buried it seamed that Bowie and co we're on the ascendant. But there where still many questions the boys need answers for: Why did modern studios insist on making drum kits sound like the recording of a wet cardboard box with a dead fish in it? Why could no group keep its integrity beyond one LP, or even a single 45? Why were Link
Wrays 2 track recordings more vital and exciting than anything a modern 8 track studio, or 16 track studio could knock out? Did spiders really see out of all eight eyes at once? Could it be that sophistication far from enhancing creativity, destroyed it?
It was time for the Pop Rivets to stifle their intellects and devolve. There were plans to record a final double LP consisting entirely of rock n roll covers recorded live on half track to be titled - The Pop Rivets Meet the Whirling Dervish and survive! They didn't.
On a cold Febuary morning the two POPPETS took out their caffeine addiction and their old drum computer pal to an empty warehouse where they met up with a cheap gang of guitars, a good-for-nothing bunch of synthesizers and a sock wearing, noise addicted microphone and together they wrung out these 8 minimalistic and animalistic lo-fi gems that were captuired immediately on a 4-track tape recorder.
Their first longer effort to date clocks in at 14 minutes and is filled to the brim with damaged and beat-up Pop that shakes and twitches in every corner. None of the involved had to suffer mental or physical damage and will soon be operational for other releases.
Have you ever chewed a big wad of bubblegum on the beach and gotten sand blown in your mouth? That sugary crunchiness, crackle and pop sensation is similar to the sound of POPPETS, a drum machine based garage-pop duo from Sweden. The group consists of LINA and MAGNUS, whose crazy pop hooks will instantly make you fall head over heels in love.
Our new years resolution in 2011 was to refrain from using the words “pop” or “catchy.” We’re sticking to our guns on this release at least as this LP is a punk behemoth. If you remember the Frantic, you know that Mike and Brannon don’t pick up instruments without asking themselves what Rick Agnew would do. This record is short and deliberate, but you can definitely pick up tinges of post punk too. The Adolescents worship continues, but you get the idea they may be secretly digging Warsaw. Comes with a download, fool. 1000 black vinyls.
PRIMITIVE HEARTS - Following up a 7"" on No Rules! Records, PRIMITIVE HEARTS offer up their first full length record. This Oakland, CA based 3-piece have mastered brass-knuckled, bubblegum garage-pop! This LP blasts thru 12 catchy as hell punky pop numbers in 25 minutes. While they do not reinvent the 3-chord wheel, I do hear them channeling aspects of some of my favorite current west coast bands. They somehow capture the vintage R&B hooks of a band like SHANNON AND THE CLAMS, the sloppy rawness of NOBUNNY, the pop sensibility of HUNX, and the energy of MEAN JEANS, THE MARKED MEN and STEVE ADAMYK BAND. This record is a perfect, feel-good anthem for the 2013 summer...fall, winter... The cool artwork was created by Christian ""Billy Jeans"" Blunda, the MEAN JEANS!
They made a dumb little video for Falling Apart. It was all shot on an 80s VHS camcorder and mixed with found footage...Enjoy!
Formed from the ashes of a mid-70's rock band called Horse, the founding members of Pumphouse Gang - Ricky Wreckage (vocals), Ralph Von Wau Wau (bass), SG Coolbridge (guitar) and Dread 'Family Man' Jones (drums) were active on the fringes of the UK punk scene as early as late 1976. The band made regular trips from their base in Ryde on the Isle Of Wight to play London's live circuit at venues like The Marquee, The Speakeasy and The Nashville, and on the same bill as acts like Generation X, Fabulous Poodles, The Lurkers and The Only Ones.
This album features the best of Pumphouse Gang's material for Splash Records, including eight tracks never previously released on vinyl. Lost classics like 'When We Were Young', 'Black And White' and 'Teenage Lament' together with those now highly collectable Splash singles only emphasise how wrong the record buying public were to ignore the band back then. Perhaps this LP will go some way to righting that wrong. - James Denholm (Worthless Trash)
2xLP. We all know and love the Purple Hearts - they were one of the leading lights of the ‘79 Mod Revival!!! The band wowed audiences all over the UK with their powerful live performances and gave us one of the best Mod Revival LPs with the legendary ‘Beat That’ release before splitting in the mid 80's as the music press turned it’s back on the bands it previously hailed as heroes.
Now Detour Records are extremely proud to give you ‘Smashing Time’ - a collection of 24 ultra rare and never-before-heard tracks that are going to blow you away!!!
Featured on this stunning release are 18 previously unheard studio tracks and 6 great live tracks. The studio tracks span the years from 1978 - 1982 and give us a real insight into the progression of the band, giving us alternate versions of our favourites, out-takes, demos and previously unheard tracks - one of which features none other than Mr. Paul Weller on keyboards and backing vocals.
Completing this fab collection are the 6 great live tracks taken from gigs throughout the band’s career - including two tracks taken from their triumphant return at the historic ‘Mods Mayday ‘99' gig.
It all adds up to one phenomenal collection that any self respecting fan of the ‘79 Revival period cannot afford to be without!!!!
Brand new 4 track EP on 12inch with a stripped-down sound full of energy, soul and imagination. These guys celebrate a mind blowing mix of 60´s RockPop and late 70´s/early 80´s Mod Revival/post-punk UK But it doesn't stop here. Once again The Q capture that working class edge - the scuffles and annoyances from our streets and society today. Produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers) the songs reminds to bands like the Damned, The Jam, Gang Of Four and the Godfathers to name a few.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SdXxiltZbE
Finally ! Thumping bass lines, solid drums, gritty guitar riffs and memorable melodies are the trade mark sound of The Q.Mixed in the Modernworld Studios , the album is an edgy, autobiographical look behind the story of the band. Each song has been written about or inspired by events that have happend to one of the band members. Significant life events from when the boys were „Growing Up“ that have shaped their characters and the music of The Q into what it is today ! This album comprises 11 songs full of Mod and catchy Power Pop as well as some Soul tinged tunes.
2xLP.Todo comienza cuando Juan Sanz “Rouky” viaja a Londres a finales de los 70 y vive en primera persona el Punk que allí se estaba gestando. A su vuelta se instala en Valladolid (1982) y decide formar QLOAQA LETAL. Tras varios cambios de formación y los típicos problemas que acarreaban montar una banda en aquellos años, entran en estudio (1983) y graban en directo, uno de los discos más malditos del Spanish Punk 80s.
30 años han pasado de esta grabación y aún sigue sorprendiendo la frescura, violencia y angustia de sus 11 temas.
Si no los conocias, musicalmente te pueden recordar a RIP, ESKORBUTO o CICATRIZ con los que compartieron escenarios, o con PARALISIS PERMANENTE… Pero yo diría que QLOAQA LETAL tenían un estilo totalmente personal y arriesgado, tan oscuro y deprimente como macarra y autodestructivo.
Editado por primera vez en vinilo, con insert y fotos inéditas. Extraido del demo original y masterizado por Dan Randall en Mamooth Soun Mastering (California)
Discos Regresivos tiene el grandísimo honor de reeditar uno de los discos básicos del punk madrileño.
Los Radio 77 surgieron en los principios de los 90 de las cenizas de Snap, Sneakers y Sex Museum y quedó claro desde el principio que sus influencias eran el punk y la nueva ola inglesa surgida desde el 77, aunque dándole el toque de las calles de Madrid.
En esa época quizás (¿en ésta lo es?) ese estilo no era el más adecuado para tener legiones de seguidores, pero siguieron adelante sacando en 1993 un EP debut imprescindible (autoeditado en La Caverna Records).
Y en 1995 llega el Terrorismo Juvenil, temazo tras temazo empezando por un himno como Aburrido en Madrid y acabando con temones como Kamikaze.
Aburrido En Madrid / Atrás / Radio 77 / Orden y Control / El Precio De Tu Piel / Revuelta Negra / Garageland
Fe y Gloria / Revoluciones / Como Tú / Chicos Del Viernes / Kamikaze / Lies / Atrás (Instr.)
Debido a que no ha sido posible conseguir el master, los temas han sido extraidos y remasterizados (de las ediciones originales en CD y en vinilo) en Geek Estudios (http://www.geekrecords.com/), y el trabajo gráfico ha corrido a cargo de Adso (http://adsoweb.es/). Muchas gracias a ambos.
Gracias al increíble trabajo de La Fonoteca podéis saber mucho más de los Radio 77 (y de muchos grupos más).
¡Espero que lo disfrutéis tanto como yo!
Originally released in 1977, Radios Appear, is the debut album from one of most important Australian bands of all time. Though they are often lumped in with the punk-rock sound of their contemporaries in London and New York, they actually owe more to the earlier sounds of Detroit, specifically the Stooges and the MC5. Their debut is a scorching piece of snotty rock and roll unparalleled in their country or beyond.
Una de las más gratas sorpresas que nos ha dado el pop europeo en muchos años. Los italianos Radio Days ofrecen en su flamante nuevo álbum una arrebatadora sesión de beat, rock and roll y power-pop de onda absolutamente clásica.
Magníficos compositores y mejores intérpretes, Radio Days han hecho el que sin duda será uno de los discos del año.
While the Marked Men might be on some sort of hiatus due to the busy schedules of everyone involved, Radioactivity at least gives us a glimpse at the glory of old, with half the band represented on the band’s eponymous debut. The project is filled with leftover tracks from Jeff Burke’s project, The Novice, and he called in good pal Mark Ryan to flesh things out, leaving us with a blistering record of punk rock hits.
“Sickness” opens with that stuttering guitar line that’s pretty prominent in the work of all those involved with Radioactivity, though there’s a soloing guitar line that seems to knife its way through the track. The vocals push the boundary of raspiness that you get from classic punk rock, though for all intents and purposes, the group’s still leans a little bit towards the pop side of things. You’ll get that image perfectly on the following two tracks, “Other Life” and “World of Pleasure.” The latter is definitely one of the record’s standout tracks, pounding furiously in your ears, despite having a catchy delivery of the lyrics throughout.
And you get what you expected on the first half of the record, with the blistering pace of the tunes allowing for the band to demonstrate their songwriting capabilities, while still honing their pop sensibility; this is one of the things I’ve loved about Marked Men and all associated bands. Tracks like “Alright” are perfect for driving, partying or even running; they fit in every corner of your life. But, what has impressed me about Radioactivity is that there’s a glimpse of what’s to come with the band’s next LP (rumored to be on its way in 2014) near the latter half of the album.
For example, “Alone” has this huge ringing guitar line, with the bass slowly working its way into the fold. It opens up the space quite a bit, adding just the slightest differentiation to the band’s signature sound. If you listen carefully, you can hear the guitars working against each other, almost fighting to define the band’s sound. There’s also the power ballad that lurks at the end of the record via “Trusted You.” The drums seem to want to escape into a heavier realm, though their steadiness really provides a good backbone for the rest of the song, which remains sort of a heartfelt ode to a lost friend or lover. It’s actually great on its own, but it’s made even better for the fact that its fittingly unique in the grand scheme of the LP.
I’m a huge fan of the group, even if the songs sometimes seem to blend together after repeated listens. And that’s the thing with Radioactivity, you’re going to get repeated listens. The songs are too good to ignore, and too catchy to dismiss. It’s clear that the duo of Ryan and Burke still have tons of tricks up their sleeves to keep me coming back to buying their records.
10""-From Across the Pond… RAF announces its debut vinyl 10"" EP “Come On!”. This foursome of lads, hailing from Portland, Oregon, produce loud, proud, three-minute power anthems echoing the British Beat of ‘64 and the Mod Revival of ’79 - but with their own modern twist. The 6-song EP evokes all night clubs, rain drenched streets, teenage angst, and fighting for one’s place in the crowd. If these in sharp suits and vintage instruments delivered tracks don’t get your feet out on the dance floor, nothing will…!!!
‘San Francisco’s Rank/Xerox do the future-primitive punk thing so effortlessly well that they would’ve been a perfect addition to Subterranean’s roster some thirty years earlier, fitting snugly between Nervous Gender and Flipper. That’s not to say they sound like either of those bands, though – rather, Rank/Xerox have a visceral-yet-moody texture reminiscent of Feederz, some Rudimentary Peni attitude, and maybe even a little VSS-styled DIY laser light-show action. In all of those classic punk scenes, none of the original bands really sounded like each other anyway, its more of the anxious strumming and frantic percussion that would make them a perfect candidate for any S.F. Underground compilation.
Record Store Day release 2012. On mushroom brown vinyl, limited numbers available!
This is the first ever authorised reissue of the -82 Finnish hardcore punk classic. 24-bit mastered for vinyl from the original master tapes. Features a gatefold jacket with all original artwork + added photos from the era.
MLP.8 new ´77 punkrock blasts from london!
""Klatsch dir ´ne Ladung Seife ins Haar und rupf die Ärmel von deinem SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS Shirt, denn das neuste Snotrock-Quartett aus Londinium hat dir einen Platz an der Theke des Roxy vorgewärmt, auf dessen Bühne sie gleich in bester EATER Manier einen blutigen Schweinekopf opfern und mit Bier um sich rotzen werden, bevor sie schließlich zum finalen Surf auf der Welle grandioser Aussie-Punk Bands wie RADIO BIRDMAN und den FUN THINGS ansetzen.
Nach der bereits direkt in der pickligen Fresse explodierenden TNT-Ladung von Debut 7“ dieser, mittels JOHNNY THROTTLE, BLOWOUTS und den TEN O SEVENS bereits einschlägig vorbestraften, Radaukollegen ist diese gloriose Fortsetzung genau der richtige Soundtrack, um angesichts der nahenden Apokalypse ein letztes Mal auf dem Feuerball von Exzess und Up & Down-A-Go-Go zu reiten. ""

The Ride were a punk rock band from Milan strongly influenced by Nuns and ’77 US punk rock. Formed in early eighties, in the same period of italian ‘hardcore’ scene.The band recorded only one 12” in 1986 and two demos in 1985 and 1987. This anthology contains 14 killer studio tracks, one of the best examples of american ‘Killed by Death’punk rock style with great Italian lyrics!
Some folks see them as a notherhern hockey playing counterpart of the DONNAS, while they always appeared in a nice teenage way of understatement. They grew up on the smell of vinyl and share friends with music maniacs like The FEVERS, 5678s, Tina Luchessi & The BOBBYTEENS and The FLAKES. ALIEN SNATCH! released their 10” mini-album entitled “Lethal Lipgloss” which is seen as one of the most infectious bubblegum music and got them many fans – and also on the cover of MAXIMUM ROCK`N`ROLL. With their new album the RIFF RANDELLS found home on the highly praised and successful underground labels of the last years – ALIEN SNATCH! and DIRTNAP. Those cats roll since ´99 and are the new generation JOSIE COTTON & NIKKI CORVETTE. In their good-times attitude, musical taste and continuity in doing the most exciting thing besides having the crush on the weird geek from the Hot Dog stop is playing in a buzzing rock and roll band! “Doublecross” is a girl group power pop album driven by a JOAN JETT blend of rocking three chord guitar drenched with Kathy's spectacular, undeniable hot and saccharine vocals. She´s got what so many girl singers miss - shout it out as catchy as only girls can do and keep it punchy from start to end. No screams and tears but make the north pole melt! Get hooked on this awesome simple though catchy record you want to take right to the next party. On top they made a perfect matching choice on covering “Bandana” of the LITTLE GIRLS. Go get a lollipop! Who else than those girls are gonna sell out Converse girl sizes and make frustrated middle aged guys wear tight black jeans in combination with pasta stained horizontal striped shirts? The vinyl edition has a bonus song from the japanese session “Robot Man” and the first 100 copies are on clear red vinyl for mailorder only. Right at the LP release date in October 2007 they are heading for a european tour with CHIXDIGGIT. The RIFF RANDELLS are once more ready to play your town. Who said Girls can´t rock!? Listen up!
10" de debut de este rio de Cedeira (A Coruña) con un pie en el sonido garage más sucio de los 80 y en otro en las melodías del pop con más clase.
REISSUE.Rockin' Horses' ""Yes It Is"" has been critically hailed as one of the true lost British power pop relics. When the late Greg Shaw (Bomp Records & Magazine) created his Voxx subsidiary, the first single he decided to reissue was Rockin' Horses' 1971 magnum opus single, ""The Biggest Gossip in Town."" Shaw declared that the single was the greatest power pop song of all time – heady stuff.
The power pop sounds of ""Yes It Is"" have been favorably compared to the best of The Beatles' ""Let it Be"" era and Badfinger's early 1970 efforts. As an homage, the band's name was drawn from The Beatles' ""Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"" and the album title itself from The Beatles B-side of ""Ticket to Ride.""
Rockin' Horse was formed in 1971 by lifelong best friends Jimmy Campbell (The Kirkbys/23rd Turnoff) and Billy Kinsley (The Merseybeats/The Merseys) after the end of their respective Liverpool bands had split. Joining the Liverpool core duo were hired studio guns: Bobby Falloon (guitar), Stan Gorman (drums) and Michael Snow (keyboards).
Having been schooled in the very same musical influences as the Fab Four, the end result is eerily similar to the sound the Beatles were creating at the end of their career during 1968-1970. The album was not an attempt to ""ape"" The Beatles' sound, but more the end product of having grown up as contemporaries of The Beatles in Liverpool and listening to the same records and playing the same circuits . How could they not end up sounding similar?
Locating a copy of the original album is close to impossible and very expensive. Now you can own one of the greatest power pop recordings of all time on vinyl with its original Hipgnosis sleeve design.

Are you ready for another wylde garage-punk extravaganza?
Do you fancy some hip-shakin’ 60’s Beat, too?
Or maybe, you just wanna dance ecstatically, shout and scream in frenzy?
Rightly so, then we certainly can help you out with the first long-playing record by Switzerland’s one and only kingly renowned garage band - THE ROYAL HANGMEN. The album contains 11 self-penned songs, full of tempestuous and raw energy, with plenty of hooklines, verve and style. Songs that are soaked with a sixties spirit, but were made in the here and now. It’s all in there: fuzz-guitars, VOX organs, snarling vocals, throbbing bass and rattling drums – always short, tight and efficient. And that’s exactly how the odd garage record should sound. Their self-titled debut was painstakingly produced by David Langhard (aka Admiral James T.) with much love for the detail and with heavy use of analogue equipment.
Hailing from Zurich, THE ROYAL HANGMEN started eight years ago to proclaim the gospel of garage rock. First a simple cover-band, they soon found their own style and tunes and finally some attention amongst the international 60’s/retro scene. Their first 45 single Mary Jane was released back in 2009 on Greek label Lost In Tyme. Lots of concerts in France and native Switzerland followed thereafter, culminating in a support slot for the mighty SONICS.
It took them some time to record their first proper album, but it was definitely worth the wait. So get on your go-go boots, put that marvellous wax on the turntable and shake your hips to the driving Turn Me On, the frantic Mary Jane, the melodic She’s Gone or Get Out Of My Way and all the other smashing tracks on this record, until you reach the final comedown with the moody, psychedelic “Wake Up”. What a trip. If you go bananas listening to bands like the SHADOWS OF KNIGHT, the ZAKARY THAKS, the BAD SEEDS, the CYNICS and the STAGGERS, this one’s for you babe!
It’s fab! It’s groovy - It’s THE ROYAL HANGMEN!

12"-Banda de Zaragoza influenciada por bandas como Lone Star,ilegales,o la primera hornada de bandas mod de Barcelona,aunque más garage,edición ultra-limitada de 300 copias.
The debut album.. tuneful and driving punk with surf influences on the guitar and some 60s pop in the medley. For fans of late 70s finnish punk rock such as Ratsia, Kollaa KestÃ¤Ã¤ etc, or the new wave of scandinavian bands like Masshysteri etc.. or just fans of plain good old punk-edged power pop like The Nerves, Undertones, Buzzcocks..
Great debut of this international (Venezuela/Poland) band based in Barcelona. The 10 songs on this LP are pure hits; mixing perfectly the sound of 80s UK punk in the most anarchopunk way, like Flux of pink indians, with the darkest side of those punk years of bands like The Mob or Killing Joke... but basically with a clear edge and root on the uk80s anarchopunk. Female vocals remind me a uk bands like The Expelled or !Action Pact! with the company of a male vocal in some songs that make the perfect complement. Sharped guitars full of reverd and great rhythmic base rooted on 80s punk sound. Great release on 350gr jacket and printed inner sleve printed in 250gr cardboard. All printed on the ""rough side"".
Reedición limitada a 500 copias del segundo álbum de esta brillante banda punk/oi! británica originalmente editado por Link Records en 1987.

Durante los años que siguieron, el miembro original Pid formó parte de distintos proyectos como cantante, grabando distinto material y realizando varias y extensas giras.

“Welcome to this collection of musical ditties by punkpop band The Shapes, who hailed from the centre of the known universe, otherwise known as Royal Leamington Spa; a small Midland town distinguished only by the hazy memory of a brief visit to it’s stuccoed-nowhereness by Queen Victoria sometime in the last century, for the extremely unpleasant Spa water and lastly for a rather miserable poem written by the late poet laureate Sir John Betjeman.
The core of The Shapes was made up of non-too-serious effluvia that was discharged from certain local public school. The band was active between the years 1977 to 1981. During this brief career they released two singles, the first being the Part of the Furniture EP on their own Sofa Records label in early 1979, which featured perhaps the most memorable songs that the band composed, namely Wot’s for Lunch, Mum? (Not Beans Again) and (I saw) Batman (In the Launderette). This record sold in excess of 10,000, was given extensive airplay on the radio, and earned the band a session for the John Peel Show on BBC Radio One. Some critics credit The Shapes as having been the founders of a sub-genre of punk known as “punkpathetique” and it is certainly true that the band deliberately steered a course away from the proselytising and semi-politics of the punk bands that had preceded them. In his lyrics Seymour Bybuss wrote about the general silliness of life. In his febrile imagination, the world was one big comic cartoon, to which he added a supporting cast of freaks, aliens and superheroes.
In 1980 The Shapes finally released their follow-up single, a double B-side featuring Airline Disaster b/w Blast Off! on the infamous Belfast-based Good Vibrations Records. History relates that this release did not do quite as well as the band had hoped, despite their loyal fanbase. Sadly, the scene has moved on, and thus their story came grinding to a halt.
The Shapes were never very famous, but their music lives on, having been previously reissued by Overground Records on CD and now LP. Listen carefully and enjoy the sound of a band who were recklessly dedicated to praising all things yampy, who were driven by a refreshingly exuberant naivety, and for whom, some 35 years later, this LP finally closes the chapter of musical history entitled The Shapes?”
(I Saw) Batman (In The Launderette)/ College Girls/ Alien Love/ Leamington/ Let’s Go To Planet Skaro/Bedtime Story/ Airline Disaster/ Wot’s For Lunch Mum? (Not Beans Again!)/ Chatterbox/ Jennifer The Conifer/ My House Is A Satellite/ Business Calls / Blast Off/ The Last Laugh
Second album of garage trash from Australia's premier all girl combo. Suzi, Babs and Kitty return with a more ferocious garage stomp this time 'round. So beware, don't let their saucy looks fool you into thinking they're all sweet 'cause this album proves The Shimmys will dig their fingernails in DEEP once they get their hooks on you!! Includes killer new originals like "Doctor Doctor", "Two Pot Screamer", "He's My Werewolf" plus a few raunchy covers; "Don't Slander Me", "Whatcha Gonna Do". For fans of Gore Gore Girls, Headcoatees, 5678's, and "girls in the garage" styled trash.
For the last two years The Shitty Limits from Reading and High Wycombe have easily been the most active, prolific and best punk band in the UK. They have released five untouchable 7" singles and now it's time for the debut album. Their myspace says their influences are 60's garage, 70's punk and 80's hardcore and that's exactly what you get inside this 23 minute album. It has attitude, tunes to kill for and that something special. Think a garage version of Minor Threat or 'Pink Flag' era Wire mixed with the L.A. punk scene of the late 70's. Each song is short, sharp and a fireball of energy. Hands down the best UK punk album in years.
The studio album from Milwaukee's power pop elite finally makes a vinyl appearance. Originally recorded in 1980! TEENLINE!
Just when the world thought it was safe from the clutches of the primal punk sneer of the CARBONAS, SHOCKED MINDS have exploded up from the underground as the brand new JOSH MARTIN-fronted (also in EX-HUMANS, TESTORS) vehicle with hooks that kill as well as they drill. And with original lineup Carbonas members DAVE RAHN (also in GENTLEMAN JESSE & HIS MEN) and JEREMY THOMPSON (also in GAMES) rounding out the ranks, it's dead set to stick in your brain like a parasite, just the way you'd expect from these long-admired Atlanta punk figureheads. But don't let that get you distracted, Shocked Minds steer their cantankerous and razored residual noise into concise blasts of exactly what you want, glazed over with refreshing nuances of the Dead Boys, Testors, The Damned and Heartbreakers, and with closer listens, shards of the ‘70s Belgian punk creme de la creme like Mad Virgins, Revenge 88, and Raxola. Songs executed so painfully tight and impeccably produced by Mr. Rahn for pinpoint perfection, you might not even notice that obscure cover by The Eat hiding in there, and it's gonna hit you like a ton of bricks.
The Shocks are back, the started their own style 77 Garage Punk with german lyrics 10 years ago. Now there tons of new bands playing this old/new style, but the Shocks prove with this album - they are still the best. The new album is more powerpop influenced, but not crappy pop music. Lp comes with a printed innersleeve.
Después de sus recompendables singles por fin tenemos el debut en larga duración de Silla Eléctrica. Trío afincado en los Mandriles que le dan al punk cavérnicola cual chimpacé en celo se tratase. A guitarrazos simples y con bateria a piñon se meriendam 18 temacos huracanados que deleitarán a los simples de espíritu, porque de ellos será el reino de la felicidad.
The Silver Cocks are pure devastation Killed By Death style, their 'eastern' oriented punk rock, strongly influenced by former Yugoslavia bands such Pekinska Patka and Paraf, takes no prisoners! This is the debut Lp, after their awesome EP on the american label Zodiac Killers Records released one year ago. Superb cover, absolutely 'out of head'!
Rave Up records is proud to presents one of the greatest and obscure outfits of the early US punk scene... The Sinatras. Started in 1976, based in NYC, the band was quite popular at CBGB and MAX’s KANSAS CITY. In 1979 they released an amazing 7” (""TEDDY CRASHES BLOND DIES / SOME OTHER BOYS"") now totally impossible to find. Their sound was directly inspired from bands such NY Dolls and Heartbreakers. Pure NYC punk’n’ roll sensations!!!
This anthology contains 7 killer studio tracks and a bunch of ‘live’ songs, recorded from a mixer desk. Be fast to order this punk classic…this item will be ‘sold out’ in few weeks!!!!
This is the third LP from Swedish punkers Sista Sekunden. A mix of fast thrashy punk along with some melodic catchy riffs. A step up in progress for these internationally revered good dudes. Includes insert with song explanations in English. 13 tracks in total on black vinyl.
Aquí tenéis el nuevo 10" de Skarmento, "Afía os cotenos", en el que los gallegos nos presentan 6 nuevas canciones de muy buen Punk-Rock.
CLASSIC 1ST LP, NO NAZI BULLSHIT! GREAT PUNK R'N'R
First Step is the debut solo album from the legendary FACES, originally released in 1970. Featuring a post-Jeff-Beck-Group ROD STEWART, along with RONNIE LANE, RONNIE WOOD, IAN MCLAGAN, and KENNEY JONES, First Step includes the now classic “Three Button Hand Me Down” and “Flying.”
Small Hours were a band with a mighty fine pedigree - they were formed by ex ‘Saints’ and ‘Lurkers’ bassist Kym Bradshaw and also featured ex ‘Jolt’ member Iain Shedden. The band soon found themselves at the forefront of the 1979 Mod Revival scene - their tight Memphis R&B / Stax organ sound setting them apart from the New Wave / ‘Jam’ sounding contemporaries such as ‘The Chords’ and ‘The Purple Hearts’. Along with Dexy’s Midnight Runners (who they were invited to tour with) the Small Hours were the link between the Mod scene and the upcoming rude boy movement that was exploding throughout the UK.
The band made their recorded debut on the legendary ‘Mods Mayday ‘79' album along with Secret Affair, Squire & The Merton Parkas - the LP went on to sell 100,000 copies. They were offered many major record deals from companies such as EMI, Phonogram, Virgin and the ultra-hip 2-Tone label but for various reasons turned them down, and put out their only release - the Small Hours 10"" and 7"" EP (which now fetches £50 and more!) on the Indie ‘Automatic’ label. The band cemented their reputation on the live circuit with regular sold out shows at The Marquee, The Venue, Dingwalls and The Music Machine. By 1981 it was sadly all over for the band, leaving behind just the one EP and several compilation appearances. The band left their mark on the music scene - their live shows are legendary and they can boast many music biz luminaries as hardcore fans such as Shane MacGowan, Jerry Dammers and Eddie Piller. Hell, even current darlings ‘The Hives’ cite them as their favourite ever UK act!
This brilliant release includes all the recorded output from the band - including previously unreleased singles and demo tracks. It’s a stunning reminder of the power of the band and a great blast from beginning to end. Also, the CD features a bonus 10 live tracks that catches the band in full flow at their peak. Add to all this great artwork featuring loads of rare and unseen photos by NME photographer Paul Slattery, memorabilia and liner notes it all adds up to one brilliant package!!

DR-10 SNAP - MAQUETAS (1988-1991)
FECHA EDICIÓN: 15 MAYO DE 2013
500 COPIAS.VINILO NEGRO
10""-Two of Texas’ leading punk monstrosities, Something Fierce and Occult Detective Club, joined forces for a split 10” for their recent tour together through the US. Both bands hail from Houston and Denton (respectively) and this release is pretty much dead on for the Dirtnap label. Something Fierce are coming hot off the heels of their 2011 release for Dirtnap, Don’t Be So Cruel, while Occult Detective Club put out their sophomore LP titled Crimes on Alive Records last year as well.
For this limited-edition split, both bands capitalize on what made their recent albums so lethal. Something Fierce clearly has the edge for making up some catchy punk rock. That becomes clear in a song like “Get On or Get Off”, featuring a tight and mid-paced pop-punk vibe that splits off halfway through the track. Grungy bass lines and shredded guitars combine for a groovy, psyched-out midsection until the track finds its footing again in the final minute.
As for Occult Detective Club, these guys offer short and blazing punk jams that on-average last about two minutes per track. Things sound a bit more sloppy and unhinged in these parts, but it makes for a blitzing good-time in a track like “Ships at Sea”. Sharp, crunchy guitar hooks lead the way through the stomping beat, revealing a fiery solo midway through the track that will quickly seal the deal.
SONIC AVENUES are just four Montreal kids who started riffing punk tunes in 2006, but since getting swept up in the booming punk epicentre of neighbouring Ottawa, they've been catapulted into the ranks of the best pop-punk acts in Canada! After releasing a few singles, SONIC AVENUES dropped a bomb in late 2009 with their debut LP on Ottawa's infamous GOING GAGA RECORDS. Within a few short months, the record had sold-out twice, including out repress in cooperation with SABOTAGE RECORDS. Two years later, after obliterating eardrums from stages across North America and Europe, they returned home to record a crushing follow-up, Television Youth, this time prestigious Portland-based label DIRTNAP RECORDS will handle the pressing overseas. Featuring more of the over-driven guitars, infectious harmonized melodies and blazing 2-3 minute songs that powered their debut, the AVES have nonetheless pushed the limits into new territories with this latest offering. In short, TELEVISION YOUTH is punkier, poppier, louder and dirtier than anything they've done before. Armed with this devastating new arsenal, as well as ambitious touring plans spanning the (un)civilized world, SONIC AVENUES are sure to keep fists in the air and beers a-flyin' for years to come.
Having delivered the quintessential powerpop/punk album in 2012′s Dirtnap-released burner Television Youth, Montreal’s Sonic Avenues take it to another level on their third LP Mistakes.
Building on their signature melodic style, the Aves return with an evolved and considerably more varied effort that resulted from dropping all preconceived notions of how a “punk” record should sound.
The band made a concerted effort to not repeat itself, and it shows. While no doubt teeming with energy and hooks, Mistakes eases off the light speed tempos of previous releases and shows greater sophistication in both songwriting and production.
Self-produced by the band in singer Max’s apartment, Mistakes was written over a period of 7 months and produced in less than three. Mixing together songs dark, bright, short, and long, this release really finds the band coming into its own and claiming a distinct niche within the contemporary pop/punk pantheon.
Fans of previous Sonic Avenues efforts will discover treats both familiar (“Waiting For A Change”) and completely unexpected (“Better Days To Come”) on this album – by far the band’s best to date!
Be sure to catch Sonic Avenues on tour in 2014 – with dates planned in more than seven European countries, Japan, Russia, the U.S. and Canada! Full European dates (all with our pals Needles//Pins) are below, keep checking our website/Facebook/Twitter pages for further announcements!
All copies of the LP come with an insert with a coupon for a free 256 kbps Mp3 download. Free posters with every order, while supplies last.
Finally one of the legends of the early S.Francisco punk music are on vinyl. These amazing tracks were in fact recorded in 1980 but they never saw the light! Now, after 30 years, Rave Up records discovered these pioneers of Art Punk music.
The band was really popular in the Bay Area and opened for many important bands such Black Flag, The Lewd, The Mentors, Los Lobos, Red Hot Chili Peppers ecc... This album is ESSENTIAL for every fan of bands such Devo, Pere Ubu, Screamers, Von Lmo ecc… So, grab this incredible Lp, all recorded in studio right now! No filler! 100% American genius! Art cover designed by Winston Smith!!!!!!
Nothing to Nowhere" is the Spectre's second full length release, following up 2010's "Last Days. This new record features ten songs that explore a range of influences from early west coast punk to British post-punk and anarcho, early death rock and new wave.
10"-Philadelphia based raw thrashy punk. This 3 piece band, rage through 13 songs in a little over 15 minutes. Fast precise hard hitting drums, loud distorted guitar that flirt with chaotic, noisy effects compliment dynamic and aggressive vocals that have just the right amount of snot and grit Their sound touches on classic 80?s hardcore, whilst paying homage to poppy and metal influences. Musically its amazing how big sounding this sounds for just drums and one guitar player. At points it reminds me of Void if they were influenced by Fuck on The Beach, Gorilla Biscuits, and even a touch of early Sonic Youth (mostly guitar wise) . Truly an original debut 10″ co-released with P.Trash records (Germany) & Sit and Spin records (Philly). (Just a note we dont have a 10″ section on the page yet so this is listed in the LP section of the store)
Rave Up has finally discovered the legendary Eliot 'Spike' Kagan 1973 tapes! Yeah, the king of basament rock started their career looong time ago, and this is the proof!!! Pure garage demented lo-fi rockn'roll at the same lavel of the garage rock masterpiece 'Kings of the Basement' album. Sloppy sound in the tradition of the rebellious rock'n' roll of the 60's! Great artwork. A "must have" for any punk and garage fan!!! "We're the Penetrators, we don't fuck around... Cause we're the number one band in this town!
The Spivs are back with their second album in November, following their debut from 2010 the critically acclaimed ‘Taped Up’.
‘Black And White Memories’ was recorded in East London at Gizzard studios with Ed Deegan at the controls over the summer, it features 14 new tracks
This album shows how the band have progressed and matured over the last year, alongside storming garage & 77 Punk tracks like the lead single ‘TV Screen’ and ‘Flicking V’s’ there are even a couple of ballads!
The band recently played the MOJO awards gigs at London’s 100 Club alongside the Jim Jones Revue and they are heading back over to Europe for another sting of dates in late October.
Thee Spivs are Ben Edge (Guit/Vox) Dan May (bass) and Steve Coley (drums)
Rock ‘N’ Roll hasn’t been this much fun for years, give it a try, you might like it!
This is one of the most talked about bands you’ve never heard off, Thee Spivs have been playing raw and primal garage punk music all over London for the last three years in any venue, party or street that will take them.
After forming in 2007, members, Ben Edge (Guit/Vox) Dan May (bass) and Steve Coley (drums) quickly gained a reputation for their energetic and unpredictable live performances. They met up with Liam Watson from ToeRag studios in 2009 and recorded a few tracks of which two tracks came out as a limited one off 7” on 1965 records in late 2009.
After a successful European tour in spring 2010 they set off recording their debut album, ‘Taped Up’ which is now complete and ready to be released on Damaged Goods in November 2010.
It features 14 tracks including their first single ‘It’s True’ plus their new single ‘I Don’t Want It’.
It’s an edgy mix of Punk, Garage and a bit of Rock ‘N’ Roll, it’s a storming debut !
Lookout for lots of gigs plus European dates being announced in the near future.
Thee Spivs are back with their third album in as many years and with ‘The Crowds and The Sounds’ they’ve honed their canny blend of trad punk, garage punk, post punk, new wave, classic English rock’n’roll and pub rock to create a magnificently varied album. Dare we say, these young men have matured, with Ben Edge proving his worth as an accomplished songwriter. Drawing from a more diverse array of influences, Thee Spivs have lapped up and reimagined sounds from bands such as The Television Personalities, The Ramones and early Wire.
The new album is a natural progression from their critically acclaimed debut ‘Taped Up’ (which landed the band an early Mojo Rising feature and a Guardian New Band of the Day piece as well as praise in The Sunday Times and Artrocker) and last year’s ‘Black and White Memories’ (with reviews including Q, Uncut and BBC). ‘The Crowds and The Sounds’ is instantly more melodic and you can see additional influences from the very British qualities of The Kinks. The songs are slowed down and slightly longer in length, with a lot more thought and work in to each one than the furiously fast, punchy numbers from their early records.

Early 80’s UK snot rockers Stench have a 14 track album called “Cult Status” featuring unreleased material from the early 80’s anals of Wolverhampton’s most obnoxious Punk band. Not for the squemish or easily offended, an album of gun rubber anthems of Nihilism and desolation that no-one would release... TILL NOW!! Only 500 copies, first 100 on blood red vinyl!
UK '82 Punks Stench return with another 12 tracks of depravity from their seedy archives. These tracks have not been heard since the halcyon days of the second wave of UK Punk. Do you wanna become "Obsessed With Evil" like they were? Well, buy the fuckin' album!! Suitable for punks, retards, weirdos, freaks, weazels, serial killers and YOU! Not suitable for pop punker, politically correct and plastic safe punks!
THE STEVE ADAMYK BAND are a bunch of obnoxious, rowdy, "kids" from Ottawa, Ontario. While the name would automatically draw comparison to a blues, jazz or rock band given the layout, make no mistake; the Steve Adamyk Band are a punk band. The SAB play trash-pop inspired by seventies punk, the skinny tie bands of the eighties, and nineties garage rock. From the ashes of MILLION DOLLAR MARXISTS (Gearhead Records) and SEDATIVES (Deranged Records), the group was born out of necessity—a whack load of orphan songs with no band to call home. Frustrated playing in bands that would eventually call it quits, Adamyk formed a band that could have an endless timeline, even if the name is outside of the standard band name zone. Releasing two European singles before their first live performance, the SAB would go on to unload 4 seven inch singles and an LP in 2010. The self-titled LP in question sold out its initial pressing in three months and received rave reviews. The following year, the SAB toured Europe, performed at SXSW and recorded their sophomore LP Forever Won't Wait. More touring and releases are currently in the works for 2012, as it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

Ottawa’s Steve Adamyk Band returns with their 4th LP (released barely a year since the last one), Dial Tone, and it’s their best yet!
For this release, SAB travelled to Oakland, CA to record with Matthew Melton of Warm Soda/Bare Wires fame. Melton grew up in Memphis and that influence definitely shows on Dial Tone.While still plenty fast and catchy, Dial Tone shows the band dialing (ha!) back a little on the break-neck punk/pop tempos of previous releases, with increasing nods to classic rock n’ roll form.
If 2011’s Forever Won’t Wait was their “pop” LP, and 2013’s Third was their “punk” album, let’s call this one their “garage” rock masterpiece!
Throughout their history, the sometimes 3, sometimes 4 piece Steve Adamyk Band has always had a fluid lineup. On these recordings (their first LP to have the same lineup as the previous album) SAB is Steve Adamyk (duh), Davey Quenselle, Dave Forcier, and Sebastien Godin (also of Sonic Avenues fame) alongside with guest appearances from Matthew Melton and the Primitive Hearts’ Danielle Agnew.
2014 has already been a busy year for the band, releasing a 7” on La-Ti-Da Records, touring Japan with Needles//Pins (7” on Dirtnap coming soon!) and playing Dirtnap showcases in NYC and Ottawa. Expect lot’s more to come, as prolific as these guys are, there’s no sign of ‘em slowing down anytime soon!

The Stillettos were born out of the back room of Max’s Kansas City in the late sixties when, if you could get into the back room, you would be in the company of Andy Warhol and His Superstars, up and coming actors Al Pacino, Sly Stallone and Robert DeNiro, graced by the presence of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin , The Stones and even an occasional night with Dali or Fellini holding court at the round table. Before the Sixties waned artists and freaks clawed their way to be in Warhol movies and some found themselves in Bizarre plays of Jackie Curtis appearing at La Mama Theater which turned out to be the seeds that grew the New York Punk scene. [close] Jackie’s “Femme Fatale or the Three faces of Gloria” brought together Jayne County, Patti Smith, Penny Arcade, The Winbrandt Brothers and Elda Stilletto, to act as the music scene began to explode with the Glitter and Glam of The New York Dolls, Eric Emerson and the Magic Tramps and KISS. In 1971 Elda formed Holly Woodlawn’s Pure Garbage - she sold her Andy Warhol cow to get a loft to live and rehearse in. She brought the show to the stage of New York’s top cabaret club Reno Sweeney’s, In 1973 bent on having a rock band, Elda left Holly to pursue the cabaret she was meant to do and recruited a Max’s Kansas City waitress who said she could sing, Debbie Harry. The Stillettos were one of CBGB’s first premiere acts billed with Television, The Ramones and Patti Smith. The fifteen year career of the Stillettos became a revolving door of some of New York’s most talented musicians: with Elda at the helm. And at any time you could find Sylvain Sylvain, Johnny Thunders, Lenny Kaye, Robert Fripp, Genya Raven, or Rick Danko sitting in for a song. On this album your ears will be candied with the sounds of Cheetah Chrome (Guitarist for the Dead Boys), Walter Lure, Billy Rath, (both of JT’s Heartbreakers) Tish and Snooky, (The Sick F**ks) Rick Derringer, Leon Neon and many others who believed in the talent and writing Elda Stilletto brought to the New York Scene. Limited edition of 400 copies of this grain of punk history!!!!!!!!!!!!
In case you did not know and / or snoozed on the debut LP on our label:
This is Jeff from the STATUES with his solo outfit, way more dirty and garage then Statues. Coming on Euro Tour in May so get the platter while it is hot!!!
Could there be a title more suitable for a new record by our beloved SUGAR STEMS than "Can't Wait"? This is exactly how most of us - i.e. people with a soft spot for a well-crafted, non-pretentious pop-song - felt constantly while we have been eagerly awaiting a new album by Milwaukee's finest. Granted, there have been two singles released on Certified PR a little earlier this year which ripped every powerpop-aficionado apart, but in a cultural realm that is filled with flavorless white bread, possibly not even a SUGAR STEMS single could fill your belly. So we digested that charmingly poppy gems pretty soon and have been hungry for more of their artistic handcraft since. And here we are, the probably best contemporary powerpop-outfit once again has put superhuman power in its creative genius and will hit your taste with a hit load of bullets, each and everyone of which would make up for a potential single's a-side and chart-stormer if this was a better world. Shout it from the top of a roof, The Wisconsin Sugar Rush rampants without restraint; it will get you hooked on an overall buzzing sound and insanely catchy vocals as sweet as cotton candy, on pumping basslines and cracking drums - driven by a firecracker lead guitar. Their sound is enriched with tons of brilliant melodies and euphoric harmonies to the maximum; Drew and Betsy's two-part singing chimes together as perfectly as you might expect from a band that we put faith in as the saving grace of rock'n'roll. And by rock'n'roll I mean that kind of music that you feel familiar with, that you hear for the first time and wish you had listen to while growing up. Certainly, it would have carried you through all the hardships as well as all the emotional high points of adolescence. Weeping yourself to sleep, giving your first love a peck, waiting for the bus on a sunny September day - THE SUGAR STEMS deliver the proper soundtrack for any romanticized image of teenage, but still they should not and cannot be reducible to the naive idea of bubblegummy, empty pop-suit bought off the peg. It's the serious approach to a feel-good-sound that is alive in the here and now, that will make you wanna canoodle your beloved no matter what age you are, and, above all, that stood the test of time. They are like a bubblegum that would never lose its taste, they are the re-embodiment of twangy, infectious Midwest-powerpop soaked in deliriously sweet melodies, they epitomize the glory your favorite '50s and '60s nuggets established decades ago, they deliver lyrics that oscillate between edgy, sneering smartness and lovelorn rhapsody and which are of a kind that everybody can relate to. Yet again, to put it in one term, the SUGAR STEMS are splendid! Big time! You will dig this record, unless you are a Martian. Well, perhaps even most Martians will dig "Can't Wait". Dear SUGAR STEMS, if your music was a house, I'd live in it. Yours truly, Matti Bildt
Back to basics Hardcore PUNK from Belgium. These dudes have been around for most of the last decade and their efforts have largely gone unnoticed. That kind of endears me more towards them actually, but yeh they're one of the best live bands I've played with - and this record is good stuff; sped up punk with vocals that dip into Jello-esque territory. The guitarist too nods his cap to the Dead Kennedys giving the record a surf-ish vibe. It doesn't stop there though, I mean they're stealing riffs from plenty of your favourite bands. This record is great for anyone who's got bored of Dean Dirg.
HoZac Records is proud to announce the much anticipated debut album by Melbourne duo Super Wild Horses. It’s rare that such a striking balance between tough and tender can be executed as well as it has on this long-player, bridging post-punk simplicity with savagely primitive propulsion, all wrapped up in a scratchy indie-pop envelope, sealed and delivered right into your vulnerable skull.
Super Wild Horses are two Melbourne gals who switch between guitar, drums and keyboard. Formed in 2009, they play taut, minimal and decidedly garage based pop music that relies heavily on dual harmonies over sparse arrangements. Following the release of their one sold-out EP in 2009, they have played around Australia with the likes of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Jon Spencer, The Drones and My Disco, including a much-talked about Golden Plains Sunday morning set. In addition to this, they have garnered an international cult following and had a song featured on a Bonds TV commercial.
The band’s debut album, ‘Fifteen’ is a heady concoction of hits, from the softly crushing sunny pop tracks that seduce and mesmerize on contact, to the impossibly catchy, noise-laden numbers that channel these ladies’ choppy expertise of stripped-down tension and texture. Recorded by Eddy Current Suppression Ring’s Mikey Young, this breakthrough album perfectly captures the chunky guitar/drum wallop and ripe vocal melodies. Truly an original sound in these modern times, which reflects nuances of alt-pop heroes from Dolly Mixture to The Breeders to later-era Bikini Kill, with all the hooks in between.
After taking nearly a decade off following the release of Here’s to Shutting Up, Mac, Laura, Jon, and Jim decided to shout it out again in 2010 with Majesty Shredding, an album perfectly described by its own title. The band’s forthcoming release, I Hate Music, is Majesty’s dark twin. It’s similarly aggressive and every bit as energetic. That title isn’t tongue-in-cheek, but it’s really more a question than a statement: When you’re 20, lazy co-workers and romantic missteps number among your biggest worries; two decades later, life’s bigger questions knock louder and louder, demanding answers.
I Hate Music is an album about love more than anything else: love of life, love of living, love of people, and yeah, love of music. It defies its own title so completely and diligently that it never even seems like a fair fight: There’s no pain this deep or yearning this severe without the type of love earned over a lifetime. It’s dark in here, but if we conjure the right words and sounds, maybe we’ll find our way out.
LP is issued on 150-gram vinyl, features a die-cut sleeve, and includes a coupon for a full download.
Here’s a story…about a badass band from my home town. There used to be a really cool spot to hang out, small room, weird rotting old tiki shit everywhere, great beers, great silly drinks with fruits and umbrellas, and ALWAYS great music. The household Saturday night was so much fun. It was 3 dj’s who played rad punk rock shit. I used to go almost every Saturday night. It would get crazy in there, the capacity was about 40 people, but there would be people dancing, throwing shit, puking, screaming, laughing, it was the best. Anyways, the Saturday night dj’s, a little order than me, I would soon get to know and become great friends with…these guys had a band called the SUPPOSITORIES. I saw ‘em for the first time at a terrible club, on a Sunday night. It was pretty obvious that they had little interest in promoting their band, there was nobody there…so punk! I seriously couldn’t stop moving. I’ve been to pretty much every show they’ve played since…just can’t get enough of these guys. They recorded 9 songs in their jamspace…the bass player singer is a self-made recording whiz. By the time I found out they recorded, it had already gone to press. This explains why there is no mention of GOING GAGA anywhere on the record. Either way, I kidnapped the record, and became its surrogate father. I wanted people to hear it, it’s so good. The name of the album came from a review of the band I wrote for the STANDARD ISSUE zine earlier on. These guys turn 1 chord into a whole song…minimalist perfection, with lots of violence, and noise. Could have been KBD, will be OOP, OMG, FU.
"Ever wondered what The Dictators crossed with The Records with Brenda Lee singing might sound like? Well, you stopped by the right place. These guys ain't dealing in nostalgia. This album features future classics that could actually please all of the people all of the time"".
This above is an excerpt from the liner notes on Suzy & Los Quattro's new album, ""Stick With It"" (WPR/Screaming Apple 2008), penned by Lindsay Hutton, founder of the legendary magazine The Next Big Thing and collaborator in MOJO or SOUNDS.
""Stick With It"" is a great step forward in the band's career, proving they can beat any obstacle after two years of line-up changes. Now working as a four-piece, the band plans an extensive tour that will take them to 9 different countries.
Musically speaking, the band sticks to their magic formula of catchy pop songs fuelled by crunchy guitars, you only have to listen to Crazy On The Phone or Because Of You to realize they still have it when it comes to writing immediate hits. But something has changed, this time the production and arrangements are taken up a notch, without losing a grip on punkpop. This time Suzy & Los Quattro have broadened their horizons to a lot of the sounds they worship so much as die-hard music fans. H.A.T.E! is soaked wet in glam, winking an eye to bands like The Sweet, Slade and featuring some guitars likely to remind you of ""Billion Dollar Babies"" by Alice Cooper. Too Late will get your feet on the dance-floor like the disco Blondie did in the 70's and The Sounds have done recently. But Suzy & Los Quattro don't forget their 60's pop heritage, penning the beautiful ballad Maybe I'm Wrong, that would surely make Phil Spector proud with two pianos, strings and horns playing under Suzy Chain's voice, shining through every track of this album like never before. Of course they didn't miss their date with new-wave in cuts like Go On, which might remind you of Baby Let's Twist with Chrissie Hynde on lead vocals. And for the more straight-forward crowd, tracks like Comeback Superstar will please the surfers and Rock Boys (dig those harmonies!) will do it for the rock'n'rollers. Special mention to Donna Donna, an amazing track with one of the catchiest choruses ever, dedicated to Donna, a rescue dog that recently became part of the Quattro-Chain family, and that will be linked to animal rights camapaigns.
And watch out for the ending, Henry Rollins, easily the best proof of a new level of versatility the band has reached. A fully a capella track done exclusively with Suzy and B.B. Quattro's vocals and dedicated to the tough and muscled DC singer.
This album consolidates all the things that Suzy & Los Quattro promised on their first album, ""Ready To Go!"" (2004), which got rave reviews and was licensed in Germany and Japan. During 2005 they embarked on their 2 week Japanese ""Lipstick To Japan Tour"", which confirmed their ""pop idol"" status in the land of rising sun, selling out two nights in Tokyo and receiving an almost beatlesque warm welcome. You can see it for yourself on their Lipstick To Japan video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vygzxCQHViU
This tour was followed by a compilation of all their singles, ""The Singles"" (2006), a record that kept them on the road again, playing two times at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool, where John Otway from the BBC included their show on his top 10 of the festival (out of 150 bands on the bill!).
So for any Ramones / Blondie / Beach Boys / Raspberries fan, here's your new favourite band!
Awesome reissue of this early '80s, Southern California Posh Boy Records band. Features all their Posh Boy material (self-titled 12"ep from '82 and their comp track on "The Future Looks Brighter" from 1983) plus unreleased demos and live songs from 1980-1982 as well as never-before-seen Ed Colver photos. For fans of Adolescents, Channel 3 and Social Distortion. 14 Songs.
Formed in Brooklyn during the winter of 2005, the members of Team Robespierre were initially connected by their roots - having all grew up in similar punk rock scenes in New York, Denver, Minnesota, Texas, Poland and Jersey, playing in bands like Thulsa Doom, Morning Glory and Hipster Bloodbath. But as Rex, Tom, Ty, Mike and Jim got older their record collections expanded to include noise, indie, electro and new wave among other genres. All and none of these genres can be heard in their recordings or live shows. But what comes across most when seeing these guys is their raw energy and unwillingness to separate themselves from the crowd. With a sound that melds the future and the past, the Team brings back memories of 80s new wave and 90s hardcore, with the ability to share stages with bands as diverse as Dan Deacon, Japanther, An Albatross, Leftover Crack, Parts And Labor, Best Fwends, USA Is A Monster, Japanther and Kylesa. Having already embarked on 3 tours in 2007, and recently enlisting a live drummer to add another layer to their complex electro-punk arrangements, the Team felt the timing was right to record an album's worth of material. With the help of Colin Marston (Orthrelm, Ghengis Tron, Stay Fucked), Team Robespierre spent most of their summer recording an album and playing dance parties. Powered by a dirty punk rock ethos, synth hooks and programmed dance beats, Team Robespierre has helped resurrect a Brooklyn punk scene that has been waiting to embrace the raw energy of our nation's basements and late night warehouse dance parties. With a sound that melds the future and the past, the Team brings back memories of 80s new wave and 90s hardcore, and after IMPOSE owner Derek Evers saw them play a show in the spring of 2007, he ended up so drenched in beer and human sweat that he had to sign these guys – making ""Everything's Perfect"" the first official full-length.
This is the much-anticipated debut full-length from London's Teenage Tricks. Following the debut 7" that sold out lightning fast comes this diverse record that is firmly rooted in snotty 70's style Punk Rock but encompasses elements of post-punk, new wave and goth ala Cure and Sisters of Mercy. The songs are upbeat and negative all at the same time and reflect the mind-set this record was written in with raw, slashing guitars and vicious lyrics carve through powerpop melodies making 'Dangerous Details' a hopeful, paranoid, anxious and cynical album.
The album was recorded at Tambourine Studios in their hometown, in January 2012. Co-producer Erik Sunding spurred them to use more than ten different guitars and amps, a quirky violin bass played over a massive amp from the 70s, old beat up drums, farfisa, hammond, piano and tons of rippling percussion. The outcome is 12 quite different songs, somehow all tied together by a common notion; walking hand in hand towards a bleak future. For those with a weakness for melancholic yet danceable punkrock, this record might just prove to be an essential staple in any collection.
They did it again! The french ambassadors of the yéyé beat return with their third album ""Quelque chose comme ça""! So, are you ready for an amazing 60's dance party? Well, don't forget to bring this platter to the DJ! LES TERRIBLES deliver an incredible mix of 60's garage-punk & big-beat shouters and give all of you Beatkeller-dwellers an excuse to dust off your winklepickers and give your mojo a workout!
The band that includes members of THE NO TALENTS, LES SYNAPSES, DUTRONC, CECILIA UND DIE SAUERKRAUTS & OPERATION S goes back to the sound of the French Beat & Roll when it was bitten by the Big Bad British Bug back in 1965. Imagine how THEM, THE SMALL FACES, THE YARDBIRDS or the early STONES would’ve sound if they were from France, never turned professionals and Van Morrison, Keith Relf or Mike Jagger were chicks. All the songs are in French, with that glamorous 'mademoiselle' accent!
The band could've been described best as the great french sixties rock band that should have existed but never did. Owing to cultural impediments and lame business practices, there were very few outstanding french rockers from that period. Ronnie Bird, Larry Greco, and a dozen others you've never heard of: LES TERRIBLES cover them all, and every song makes you wanna dance. The band rounds out their set with some originals, as well as their own french versions of some great foreign songs that never got adapted before, all done with a perfect ear for the style. Fronted by the charming and talented chanteuse Rudie this hard-working orchestre delivers the groove that gets the dance floor moving to the Swim, the Jerk, and the Hully-Gully. Les Terribles are sur scene ! (Jon Dragueur)
A Top 10 forever-must have this one is. What more can we tell you?
Back in 2007 FDH released the first and only full length record from Jay Reatard’s harsh electropunk project Terror Visions. World of shit was a collection of songs recorded between 2002 and 2006 as a outlet for songs Jay wrote that didnt fit with his current projects (Lost Sounds, Angry Angles, Jay Reatard). The record was released as a picture disk LP and CD limited to 1000 copies each. Within months we ran out of the LP’s and had only had the CD available.
We are very excited to announce a re-release of this record on vinyl. This reissue is really more of a band complete discography then a reissue. It collects the entire World of shit album (including 2 tracks that were originally CD only tracks), as well as the 2 tracks that were never released, one original and one Brian Eno cover (Baby’s on Fire).
For this reissue we had new artwork put together for a gatefold cover including a stack on uncirculated pictures of Jay. We went with 180 Gram black vinyl and had the tracks remastered to greatly improve the quality over the picture disk from a few years back.
2xLP.This is the official and worldwide exclusive re-release of the TESTORS' 'Complete Recordings' double album, previously out on SWAMI back in 2003, but now with a few more songs and completely renewed and stunning gatefold artwork! There are THIRTY-SEVEN tracks on the vinyl edition of this killer 77 punk/power pop compilation! Limited edition of 300 copies on coloured vinyl, including a download code.
Title tracks is the latest project from front man john davis, who’s served time in q and not u and other dc mainstays. This is their third release following a 7″ single on dischord and their debut lp on the ernest jennings record label. Well structured / crafted pop tunes recorded at inner ears studios, a mecca for dc recording artists for the last 20 years, so you can trust pure analog warmth at its finest. The lp’s first single “turn your face” defines the simplistic, moderate sound of this band, pounding it out in a desperate calm. John usually records all the instruments himself, but this time, found himself a pretty steady, rumbling rhythm section. Eleven tracks of quality, mind mesmerizing, pop hooks that are easily their best yet.
Treinta años después de que se grabara la original cassette de TNT, el contenido pasa a vinilo por primera vez por gentileza de un sello de documentos punk. La grabación se ha limpiado y respetado (en realidad era infinitamente superior a lo que luego publicaría en disco el grupo) e incluye dieciséis piezas entre originales y versiones, y además reproduce el fanzine que servía de presentación del grupo y la cinta, que llegó a ser un hito en circuito alternativo(el de verdad) de la época. TNT fueron considerados una 'Pieza clave en el punk primigenio estatal' como se lee en los archivos de la web La Fonoteca.
Originariamente facturada en 1982 con apenas una pletina de cassette, 'Una naranja mecánica' fue grabada al tirón con un equipo prestado (por el actual guitarrista de la Big Band de Atarfe por cierto) y ofrecía un descaro y un frescor que ni todos los limones del Caribe. Se pude decir que esa cinta puso a Granada en el mapa del pop y el punk, fue todo un éxito en las listas de la influyente Radio3 pero, ay, también resultó una frustración sin remedio.
Editada a través de Drugo Records (tan artesanalmente que en realidad era la casa del amigo radiofonista que la estrenó -¡En Radio Popular avemaríapurísima!- y con cinco pletinas prestadas en serie), se despacharon en serie más de un millar de copias (una barbaridad para la época) que alentaron un futuro más que prometedor para el jovencísimo combo compuesto por José Antonio García 'Pitos', Jesús Arias, Ángel Doblas y Joaquín Vilches. «Nos abrió las puertas de Madrid. Nos hizo conocer gente interesante, éramos la sensación llegada de Granada, como el chico nuevo en la ciudad. Rápidamente intimamos con gente como Carlos Tena, Ordovás o Diego Manrique en prensa, y con grupos como Parálisis Permanente, Radio Futura, Siniestro Total, Alphaville, Glutamato Ye-Yé, Gabinete Caligari, Pedro Almodóvar, o Alaska. Nos trataban de igual a igual. Fue una época muy divertida, aunque sólo éramos cuatro gatos», recuerda Arias.
Pero el servicio militar de Ángel Doblas paralizó el presente de la banda, y la inclusión de su cantante José Antonio en un proyecto nuevo llamado 091 terminó por convertir en imposible la idea que todos tenían del grupo. Se sucedieron nuevos cantantes y finalmente el propio Arias se tuvo que hacer portavoz del grupo, pero el registro vocal y el desparpajo de aquella cinta fue imposible de volver a lograr.
Junto a los tres primeros ases del grupo 'Cucarachas', '1984' y 'Sin futuro (con 20 nada más)' hay versiones de The Clash, Chuck Berry, los Stones, Kinks y Leo Dan. Parte de la edición es en vinilo negro y la otra en transparente rojo para coleccionistas.
Holy fox, this Halifax machete swingers cut right to the chase on their debut album which P. Trash delivers right on time before your Power Pop shakes start kicking in again and you start scratching off the wallpapers on a cold Punkrock turkey. This sounds like the DICKIES holding a lighter under a tin foil where the MARKED MEN are ready to take a big drag while the grinning BRIEFS are throwing peanuts at them.
Burning down fast on 45 tokes a minute, the pacing ''Rad moves'', ''I'm not listening'' and ''Pizza jerk'' will cause a head rush and the full pack of melodies and hook-filled choruses in ''Scientology'', ''Something's wrong'', ''Stupid kids'' or ''Watching you'' , mixed with the unknown psychedelic substances of ''Billie's genes'' will keep you nailed on the floor with your own personal Chula Vista projected on the bedroom ceiling of your inner eye.
Once more, this is pushing some serious Punkrock stuff to the needy. Rehab is futile.

Toys That Kill come from San Pedro, California, the city where the freeway ends, where bullets fall from the sky on the fourth of July and where Mike Watt painted the name of his hometown on his bass and everybody started calling him “Pedro.” This is album four but year twelve of the band, and probably year twenty-something for Toys singer/guitarist and Recess Records founder Todd Congelliere, and while it wouldn’t fit his genre or his personality to start chucking around words like “expert,” Todd and Toys have exactly figured out how to make a couple chords and a chorus timeless in a way that’s old and new all at once.
Congelliere was at the core of F.Y.P, the band he started basically with the lowest-budget drum machine and four-track recorder legally available in 1989 after sudden and intense exposure to punk by fellow skaters who’d come by to use his ramp and bring mixtapes for the boombox. (“Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, 7 Seconds, the Germs, Descendents—if it wasn’t for those bands, not only would we not sound like this, I probably wouldn’t be involved with music,” he says now. “I’ve always hated normal musicians and these bands were nothing like that.”)
When he started FYP , it was hardcore, but in the loosest sense—fast, pissed, aimed squarely against a world of teachers and cops and full-of-themselves idiots. But there was more going on, too—Minutemen- style wordcram and Descendents-esque melody snarled together with pitch-dark humor and strangely sentimental sarcasm, and by the summer of 2000, it was obvious that the band called F.Y.P was ready to become something else. So naturally, they did, playing the last F.Y.P show for hundreds of proud screaming weirdos in a cavernous bar in the Inland Empire and debuting the new deal at a since-bulldozed punk club in the shadow of the Port of Los Angeles the very next night. And so—the same way the Descendents changed into All—began the mighty Toys That Kill.
If you were there, you could tell this band was everything ex-F.Y.P-ers Congelliere and Sean Cole (now twinning Congelliere on guitar and vocals) had been saving up since ever. These were gigantic songs with choruses as heart-stopping as the Clash and a rhythm section—bassist Chachi Ferrara, drummer Denis Fleps—so heavy it sank further into the stage every time the drums kicked in. (This is called the “TTK thump,” says Congelliere.) Toys had pop songs but pop songs broken at the edges, rock ‘n’ roll songs but rock ‘n’ roll songs with all the pose and pretension dissolved away, punk songs but punk songs that weren’t ever gonna burn out and crumble away. And so Toys That Kill revealed themselves as a band that could translate Thin Lizzy and the Buzzcocks, Cheap Trick and the Descendents, the Replacements and the Who and Elvis Costello and the Ramones all down to the same simple things—energy, guitar and heart.
Fambly 42 comes after a six-year ... not really a break, since Cole and Congelliere each were up front in their own bands and playing in friends’ bands and delivering the world the Underground Railroad to Candyland, Stoned at Heart and That’s Incredible!, which you should you should go grab (preferably on cassette!) as soon as you’re done with this album. But Toys returns rested and ready with an album recorded in Congelliere’s home-built Clown Sound studio, steady and strong on probably its most potent line-up, built around longtime drummer Jimmy, who Congelliere calls one of his best finds ever: “F.Y.P always had rotating members so I never take for granted how long we have been able to play together,” he says. “Especially since it always seems new and fresh. I've never had chemistry with anyone quite like this.”
And after 12 years, they’ve turned this into some kind of science. There’s a chord change in “Nervous Rocks” or “Freddy And His Mother” that’s a Toys That Kill signature, where the song bends in a way you don’t expect and barrels right through the center of you. There’s a beat on “V Chip” or “I’ve Been Stabbed” that just about breaks the song in half. There are those melodies on “Waltz One Million” and “Fambly” that don’t ever want to go where you predict they’re going to go. And there’s the slow-motion grand finale of “Clap For Alaska,” which unravels from a barely there guitar pattern into a high-power heartbroke anthem: “I know if I come back down, they’re gonna get me!” It’s fifteen tracks but also fifteen snapshots of a band that’s become the best kind of machine—of four musicians who know they can trust each other, and that all they gotta do now is fight for the song. If there’s a key to what Toys do so well and have done for so long, that’s it: “It shouldn't be a lost concept but that's what everyone should aim for— making the song work,” says Congelliere. “Anything else will ruin it.” -Chris Ziegler/L.A.

2º Lp de LOS TRACAHOMBRES (Valencia) exclusivamente en vinilo y en una limitada edición repartida entre la gentuza de los sellos Discos Calamidad, Sonámbulo Records y Tuca Raca, un puto placer. Después de su anterior trabajo homónimo (2009) LOS TRACAHOMBRES nos asaltan con una nueva propuesta, “Rock and Roll despechado”, un nuevo Lp mucho más trabajado, con una presentación y sonido más cuidado, coros y registros vocales y unos teclados que trastornarán (aún más) tu jodida masa cerebral. Diseño y arte a cargo de don Rogelio J., guitarra y cantante (podéis ver más diseño en http://donrogelioj.blogspot.com/ y http://www.myspace.com/milcamilos). Ritmos frenéticos y melodías manteniendo el espíritu crudo marca de la casa, parte de la cortante personalidad de la banda. Mete en una vieja batidora de funcionamiento desfasado y cuchillas oxidadas a bandas como LOS SAICOS, LOS CRAMPS, LINK WRAY, GABINETE CALIGARI, TOM WAITS, SEX PISTOLS, CHUCK BERRY… y te haces una idea. Garaje, Rock&Roll y Punk Rock a partes iguales con una personalidad y actitud que acompleja. Un disco que repasa sin pegas las distintas vertientes del Rock a lo largo de sus décadas. Como dijo el poeta: ritmos primitivos, vidas salvajes. Sonidos primitivos que te devolverán a las cavernas los que destilan las 12 canciones (incluyendo una versión libre de MERLE TRAVIS) de este Lp registrado en directo en solamente dos días! Y con una masterización especial y específicamente cuidada para una única edición en vinilo! Cuidando graves y medios para que suene POTENTE, como debe ser! Fresco y salvaje, ácido y dulce, gamberro y “maduro”…es el resultado plasmando excelentemente un fresco álbum de Rock&Roll salvaje de los que hacía tiempo que no escuchabamos. Con letras dementes y atormentadas que te recordarán a tus pesadillas favoritas, esas de las que te levantas brutalmente empalmao.
Trance se forma en 2011 por Tere (guitarra), Rafita (bajo), Gato (batería) y Rafa (voz). Vienen de bandas de hardcore como Aspirina Infantil, Orden Mundial o los argentinos Fun People. O quizá es la primera vez que tocan en una banda. El caso es que estos tíos se entienden bien, cogen rápido la idea y en 2012 sacan una maketa de 4 temas que posteriormente es reeditada en 7” por varios sellos independientes.
Esto es solo el principio. Trance trabajan duro y parece que los nuevos temas salen con facilidad. Canciones más elaboradas, con más cuerpo, cargadas de energía. La influencia de Ramones sigue siendo esencial, pero una simple escucha al nuevo material basta para saber que no estamos ante otra banda ramoniana de esas que inundan el punk actual. Trance desborda personalidad propia.
Estos chicos han conseguido lo más difícil que se puede hacer hoy en día: Punk-rock, nada más. Drogas, malestar, amor, desamor y otros dolores de cabeza. Algo que se ha hecho siempre en el Punk estatal y que desde hace tiempo no se ha conseguido con tanta honestidad, mierda ya.
Hailing from Topeka, Kansas,THE TUNES were a band that embraced the pop side of the power pop genre. They gigged throughout the Midwest between 1979 and 1983, self releasing a 7" EP in 1982 with the goal of scoring a record deal. Sadly, the industry failed to notice the band's strong songwriting ability and exceptionally catchy pop tunes. After the rejection letters piled up, the band split apart leaving very little to sustain their legacy. Thirty years later, Cheap Rewards Records has unearthed six demos that were previously only heard by club owners and booking agents decades ago.Love Uncool presents these lost gems on vinyl for the very first time along with the four classic songs from their original EP.
Founded by Steven Brown and Blaine Reininger in San Francisco, TUXEDOMOON are a futuristic alternate reality of delirium and existential dread. Aligned with fellow Bay Area experimentalists THE RESIDENTS (to whose Ralph Records the group eventually signed) and Robin Crutchfield's post-DNA project DARK DAY, TUXEDOMOON developed a unique combination of synthesizer and guitar that placed them at the forefront of the US post-punk movement in the late '70s and early '80s.
Scream With A View, recorded surreptitiously in THE RESIDENTS' private studio in 1979, advances brilliant melodic concepts through analog technology for a sound barely comprehensible today. On ""Where Interests Lie,"" punchy drum machine underlies barbed and eerie leads from guitarist Michael Belfer (THE SLEEPERS). ""(Special Treatment for the) Family Man"" – a reference to Dan White's trial for the assassination of San Francisco's mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978 – is an indignant vigil cut with a rare brand of macabre humor. Saxophone, Polymoog, violin, e-bowed guitar, and CB radio interference make Scream With A View the insidious foil to the urgent No Tears EP.

Their 1978 debut EP, No Tears, was recorded with vocalist Winston Tong and sound engineer Tommy Tadlock. Replete with tense synth swells, devastating live drums and a psychotic ode to the ""creatures of the night,"" the title track is a crucial entry in the synth-punk canon that stacks up next to the best work by UNITS and THE SCREAMERS. Reininger's electric violin congeals with electronic atmospherics to unnerving ends on the instrumental ""Litebulb Overkill."" Few records do justice to the mania and paranoia of a forsaken city; none do it for San Francisco like TUXEDOMOON's No Tears.
Do you remember the PHANTOM RATS? These guys have put out some of the most impressive punk´n´roll platters of the nineties and together with bands like TEENGENERATE & the 5,6,7,8´S they were responsible for the beginning of the japanese rock´n´roll invasion in America and Europe. Unfortunately they broke up in 1997, but singer, songwriter and guitar player Kazand drummer Tetsu couldn´t do without playing and formed this new and even stronger outfit called the TV IDOLS. 17, desperate and all messed up is their debut albumand it´s the hell of a record. While the PHAMTOM RATS had a strongrock´n´roll influence, the TV IDOLS are more fixed on late 7t´s, earlyeighties US punk, like the DEAD BOYS and the early REPLACEMENTS. Great songs, catchy hooks, a hard edged guitar sound and a real driving rhythmsection, that describes the TV IDOLS sound best. 12 powerful and energetic punk-rock anthems including covers of the DEAD BOYS and the RICH KIDS make thisrecord one of the punkin´ highlights of the new millennium.

Whenever Toronto’s punk scene of the late 70s is discussed, it’s usually the Diodes and the infamous Viletones that get name-checked, while other important bands of the era are overlooked.
In some cases, there are good reasons why groups that regularly played the main punk venues of the era like the Turning Point, Larry’s Hideaway and the Crash ’n’ Burn are now largely forgotten.
Tyranna’s best work wasn’t released on singles at the time, and they rarely ventured outside the city during their brief run in 1978 and 79. This explains why the energetic pop-punk crew led by the snarly Vera “Rabies” Skye, who split bills with Iggy Pop, Jane County, the Members and the Dils, isn’t better known today. The band also appeared on 'My Girlfriend Was a Punk' compilation with the track 'Back Off Baby'.
It may be 30 years too late, but Tyranna’s long-rumoured early demos, finally being released on album on Rave Up records!
Bueno en el título queda bastante claro lo que contiene este disco. Un vinilo hecho por fans con cariño (eso se nota) para darle una sorpresita a Silvia. Incluye un libreto extenso con comentarios de la propia Silvia y de músicos de grupos como Desechables, Vomito, Monstruacción, Decibelios, TDEK, Familia Real, Vulpess (ya sabéis, barriendo para casa)... y gente tan sobresaliente como Punkike o TGL.
Sin duda lo que más me gusta es la maqueta del 80 (grabado en la sala Garaje y con un tema que no conocíamos (Johnny cogio su fúsil). La etapa que más me gusta de Último Resorte es esta primera, mucho más Punk y menos Hard Core, rozando incluso la Nueva Ola. Las tomas grabadas aquel día no son tan brillantes como las que salen en el Post Mortem (insuperables para mi gusto) y el sonido es mucho más crudo, incluso cavernoso. Sorprende la lentitud con la que están grabados temas que en el PM son superacelerados como Me Excitas, La Quiniela o Año 2000 y no digamos ya los anfétaminicos Cementerio Caliente o Peligro Social que en el single van a una hostia increible y aquí son tan pausados que a veces tienes que comprobar que el disco es a 33 RPM y no a 45 RPM. Eso sí, el que sean tomas más lentas no quiere decir que sean malas. A mí me gustan bastante (porque son temazos, qué duda cabe) y porque ayuda a descubrir matices, entender mejor las letras y verlos de otra manera. Por no hablar que ese sonido (bastante aceptable) a caverna que mola mogollón.
En la cara B tenemos el directo del 83 que dieron con Las Vulpess, en donde se dedican a pisar el acelerador (aunque sin llegar a la velocidad de su última etapa). Y en el repertorio comienzan a aparecer ya temas tardios (Una Guerra sin fondo), pero aún se mantienen bastantes clásicos pre-single. Eso sí, a pesar de la velocidad, el sonido (muy muy malo) destartalado hace que todo suene mucho menos HC de lo esperado. La batería parece un tambor de Colón y la voz superalta, tapa las guitarras. Más que UR parecen un grupo de chavalillos de 14 años haciendo versiones de UR en el garaje de su casa y grabándose con un radiocassette situado en el piso de arriba, jajaja. A mí eso me mola mogollón, ya lo sabéis. Pero supongo que a mucha gente le parecerá un poco tomadura de pelo. A esa gente les recomiendo que se centren mejor en la cara A (documentazo histórico), donde el sonido, sin ser la leche, es bastante aceptable para lo que suelen ser estas cintas rescatadas.
No es, desde luego, lo mejor de UR, pero sin duda se trata de un documento muy interesante, solo para fans, eso sí. Pero, ¿quién no es fan? Punk!!!
Reedicion de esta rareza del Punk de Barcelona 1983.
It is 1977. A scruffy neighborhood of Boston sprouts a band of naive working-class kids who think they can shake up the world with their personal take on the punk rock experience. Not content, or possibly even competent enough, to be another Jam clone or a Clash clone, Unnatural Axe bash out their own brand of two-chord and three-chord rock, and crank it up extra high. Throughout 1978 and 1979 the Axe were playing regularly in New York, and at Cantone's, the Rat, and the Space in Boston as the opening act for the "big" UK and US new wave acts of the time. Their strangest billing must have been opening for The Police at the Rat in Kenmore Square. It is truly unfortunate that Sting squandered this "turning point" opportunity to learn the essentials of punk rock from Boston's finest. Sting's only question of the Axe vocalist: "Did you poop?" But such is the fate for the greatest moments of brilliance of our times: few people recognize it. The big club owners didn't see it and the major record labels didn't hear it. After two short years, the Axe packed it in. As a result, the Unnatural Axe discography is small, but what recordings do exist provide the documented proof that the Axe were, and shall always remain, the most important punk band Boston will ever call its own.
Los granainos atacan otra vez. Un tremendo disco donde superan su fijacion por los Dead Kennedys, aunque siga estando presente, y se adentran en terrenos mas oscuros de la mano de Crisis o Paralisis Permanente. Evidentemente hacen honor al punk nasal de su tierra y los guiños a KGB y TNT estan nuevamente. Impecable presentacion grafica.

Delving deep in the underground and peripheries of Brazilian rock, Groovie Records keeps digging up many- styled and shaped nuggets in various stages of cutting.
The result extends the BRAZILIAN NUGGETS series, now reaching its second volume. Therefore, THE BRAZILIAN NUGGETS VOLUME 2 continues along the trail paved by its predecessor. One more time a great artwork by DARREN MERINUK, amazing work keeping all the spirit of the brazilian way of living the rock'n'roll.
Again the second volume came full of weird'n'garage psych monster themes. Obscure tracks by Os Espiões, Avanço 5, Diana, Giovanne, Sonny Delane, Modern Sound Six, among others. We tryed to keep the spirit of the 60's punk, full of fuzz and garage punk, rhythm and a bunch of never seen photos and record covers. The perfect christmas present for you monsters!
Remember the “Chaos En France” and “Chaos In Europe” compilations? Well, that was the 80’s, now it’s 2014 and it’s time for some fun and chaos in Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain) with volume 1 of the new “Chaos In Catalonia” compilation brought to you by Common People Records! Just for the amazing coverartwork this compilation album should get a 10 out of 10, but don’t be mistaken, because not just the artwork is great! Also the the seven bands on this sampler are simply amazing! What you get are some of the best bands Catalonia, or Spain for that matter, have to offer in the form of Secret Army, Von Dänikens, Acero Condal, The Gundown, Crim, The Bite en Pennycocks each performing two tracks, with the exception of Von Dänikens who are with three songs on here. I can’t find a single song on here and with songs sung in both English and Spanish and a fine mix of sounds ranging from ’77 punk to Oi! music I can’t imagine anyone who reads this page not enjoy this album! If you want to know what is up in the streets of Barcelona these days, you better pick this compilation up! I’ll promise you that you won’t be dissapointed! Let’s hope many more volumes will follow, awesome record!

REPRESS.All American punk, no foreign junk.
Local and regional compilations used to connect listeners with obscure punk tunes long before the Internet furthered the reach of fledgling bands. Compilations such as the recently released Land of Nod: Atlanta Punk and Hardcore Omnibus still have a purpose in the digital age, serving as timestamps that capture the state of underground rock music at a certain time and place. Land of Nod showcases 13 different bands, 11 from Atlanta and two based in nearby Athens, compiled by G.G. King and COPS band mates and Scavenger of Death label bosses Ryan Bell and Greg King. It's a pretty cohesive list of local punk acts, as only Resons is conspicuous by its absence.
Album opener ""Born Dead Generation"" by Bukkake Boys captures the now-defunct hardcore band in all its brutal glory and sets the tone for the rest of the album. Punk compilations often contain both bands that have called it quits and the first officially released track by newer acts. Land of Nod is no exception, as it includes what are likely the last two officially released Bukkake Boys songs and the vinyl debuts of Athens-based American Cheeseburger offshoot Shaved Christ, local grind standard-bearers God's Balls and Predator spin-offs Acid Freaks and G.H.B.
Speaking of Predator, their two offerings show the group coming off a lengthy hiatus sounding stronger sonically and lyrically. Whether this is the intention or not, these songs should sway several listeners to pick up a copy of another new Scavenger of Death release: a Predator cassette featuring new songs and unreleased demos. Other punk and hardcore highlights include G.G. King's dim yet catchy ""Eternal Feeling,"" which stacks up well against both sides of the band's stellar ""Joyless Masturbation"" seven-inch, and Ralph's hilarious, eponymously titled slice of 1980s hardcore that cements that the band's name is a reference to puking.
Not every band on the compilation can be considered hardcore or, depending on whom you ask, punk. Still, everything from bands on the noisier end of the spectrum (Vincas and Wymyn's Prysyn) fits the flow of the album. This is probably less of a surprise than the seamless inclusion of a song by power-pop songsmith Gentleman Jesse Smith. The track in question, ""Fence Yourself In,"" owes more to catchier Killed By Death deep cuts than Stiff Records power-pop.
Overall, this is a solid collection of modern local punk songs. Like 1980's Standard Deviations, which captured the aftermath of the Sex Pistols making their U.S. debut two years earlier in a Buckhead shopping mall, and The View: An Atlanta Compilation, 1984-1990, a Lunchbox Records cassette that showed a local shift from early American hardcore to the sounds associated with more visible acts on SST and Dischord Records, this will someday serve as a history lesson to young Atlanta punks. Until that day comes, Land of Nod will be an exciting listen for the bands' peers and, if we're lucky, will let outsiders know that more goes on in Atlanta than a now slim garage-rock scene.
REISSUE.Raw Records was one of the UK's first ever independent labels, having been formed in 1977 by Lee Wood. This was the second compilation they issued in early 1978 following up the ‘Raw Deal!’ album (Damgood 209). This reissue includes 4 bonus tracks including the ultra rare ‘Into the 80’s’ by The Now.
16 of the label's best tracks feature here alongside a comprehensive discography of one of the most important but vastly underrated indie labels of our time. Bands such as The Users, Killjoys, Lockjaw and The Unwanted later provided members for the likes of The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, UK Subs and Dexy's Midnight Runners whilst the scarcity of Raw's releases made them highly prized collectors' items.Two Soft Boys tracks from one of the rarest Raw singles fetaure here, unavailable elsewhere.
The CD also features original photo’s, posters and adverts from 1978. As with the RAW DEAL compilation the vinyl version comes in two different colours, Red and Blue
DOBLE LP que recoje parte de la historia punk de Barcelona de los 80 basado en el libro Que Pagui Pujol de Joni Destruye.
Una gran seleccion tanto de temas, como de bandas del momento. Casi todos los temas son ineditos, de ensayos o directos e incluso maquetas.
En él encontrareis un tema inédito de Desechables: Fuera de la ley. Fue grabado en los estudios de doblaje cinematográfico de una tía de Dei-Pei en 1982 y perteneció a la primera maqueta de la banda (no confundir con 'La Maqueta' de Anarchi Records) que no se llegó a comercializar. Sonó en Radio3 gracias a Jesús Ordovás, y fue el primer material que se escuchó de Desechables en todo el país.
En 1988 se grabó en estudio para el último LP de la banda 'Amor Pirata', pero no fue lo mismo. En este caso se trata de la primera formación con Tere (voz), Miguel (guitarra) y Dei Pei (batería).
Podéis escuchar el tema mediante el siguiente enlace. ¡Disfrutadlo! (Gracias a Alex Montes por pasarnos este preciado tema)
Tambien podras encontrar grupos como , EPIDEMIA (Pre-Anti/dogmatikss), Sindrome toxico, Joni Destruye y los repugnantes (Autor del libro), Napalm (no dieron muchos conciertos)...etc...etc...

Vivian Girls - Lake House;Blank Dogs - Ages Ago;Pink Reason - Going Home;Guinea Worms - Soiled Sender;Times New Viking - A Lot of Paintings;
Tyvek - Flowers (different/better version than cd-r);Intelligence - The Beetles;Sic Alps - STREPIX;Thee Oh Sees - Schwag Rifles
Basically I think comps are pretty worthless these days. Maybe ever. Unless you are attempting to sum up the state of a 'scene'. Which is what records like All The Presidents Men did. And what ""The World's Lousy With Ideas Volume 8"" does. For this record features the cream of the cop in the new Yankee garage / lo-fi - pop / indie scene, and it's not just a bunch of throwaway crap like on various comps what have been released over the years. Vivian Girls open up and present us with ""Lake House"" which is a gorgeous slice of fuzzed out laziness that could have come straight off of that awesome Katie the Pest CD that not enough people know about. Rectify that please, if you enjoy this sound you need to be listening to Katie the Pest. The absurdly prolific Blank Dogs bounce off the end of that with their typical synthy ""dark wave"" or whatever you're supposed to call it, basically they sound like Joy Division gone wrong. I can't say I regularly sit down to listen to Blank Dogs, but I do enjoy them and in small doses they are particularly enjoyable. If you listen to that 2 x 12"" thing in one sitting, you are a tougher person than I. Times New Viking may steal the show on here with the stunning ""A Lot Of Paintings"". I've struggled with this bands albums but this song is so super sweet. No production, messed harmonies, complete failure - plenty of bands do the thing where they record into something with the fidelity of a dictaphone, but Times New Viking are capable of writing an awesome song, and that is what sets them apart from the knuckle dragging masses. Intelligence did a fairly unremarkable LP on In the Red recently, but this loping fuzzy garage rock piece is eminently listenable, good work chaps! Guinea Worms wind down side A with a lumpen, loafing punk effort, great bassline and it sounds pretty drunk. I reckon this is somewhere between Moss Icon and something hipper. I like this a lot.
Flipping to side B, Sic Alps do the throw away track of the record, pointless noise and feedback, zzz. Easy to skip them to the ultra hip Thee Oh Sees, who actually disappoint with their effort, a fairly average slice of their garage rawness with echoing vocals. You'll find far better on their most recent LP, but that's not to say this is terrible. An average Thee Oh Sees effort is of more interest than song A by generic garage band B. Next is Tyvek (you should be getting the picture by now, the line up on this comp is astonishing), who deal a slow burning effort that meanders and like Guinea Worms is somewhere between Moss Icon and something hipper. This band is seriously impressive, and I just wish their LP on Siltbreeze had been a bit better. Rounding things out on here is Pink Reason, who do this towering epic, spiralling guitars and stoned vocals, there is so much to like on this track, teetering on the edge of falling apart. The way it builds and with the tribal drumming, this sounds really in the ball park of any number of mid 90s emo bands that anyone who likes this kind of music would be so quick to disown. It's just the vocals that differ. I'm not making this up. This could have been on Goldenrod or something. Best track on the record.
So, um, easily the best comp I have heard in a lot of years. This record makes me very excited about new music. I hope it does for you too.
Yet another compilation from Turist i Tillvaron are now released. The different genres are significant for this compilation collection. I find both old and new acquaintances. The Negatives who've belong to one of my favorite bands for a long time give me strong pogo feelings with their brilliant punkrock. Hyrda Knektar, another punkrock band, but with more pop feelings than The Negatives suprise me in a positive way. Uppgång & Fall have that classic swedish 80.s punkpop sound and the female/male vocals make it really good. Vervain, who use to be a good band isn't good this time, I think they have to decide how they wanna sound, it's the vocals who disturb me most it just doesn't sound good. The crust/hardcore bands on this volume is the mediocre Total Aggression, the good Träshers and another good band Livet som insats who play really raw and fast kängcore. Just like Uppgång & Fall have Vånna Inget that old punkpop sound, and I think it's allt the bands from that genre I like most from the Turist i tillvaron compilations. I didn't realize how good Vånna Inget really are, I wanted more and found more on Spotify, I have to buy their records when I get more money. Antipati is the last band on this volume, and if you've read all reviews in this issue do you already know how much I like them.

Sörling fighting ahead with his Turist i Tillvaron series and has now reached Vol 7. They band I've heard before is Bombettes, Körsbärsfettera, Ursut, Headlines and M 40. First up on the disc is Nervgift and I think probably most it sounds like a rehearsal studio recording, but it sounds that there is anger and aggression in all cases in their tough hardcore. Solanas Cunts also has a pretty sharp sound but these girls sound really angry .... Ein Zwei Die has a really good name and even here it is a sounds that exude desperation .... think me a little back to the early punk but with harder sounds. Self, we released a tape of a similar name but here is the group KlartGrabbenSkaHaEnEPAMedSilvertejjp & Uffe and it really is a song that I like. Angry girl who sings like she's never done before and most of all she sounds angry and that's that's what I like most punk .. that one should and must be angry. Lyckliga Idioter with their song about divorced parents are the next group out ... Funny text written from a child's point of view and this makes me think of the old song with Dom Fåglarna or what they were called.. cheeky early naive punk that is so charming. Miss behave & The Caretakesr is next out and sure and here I am a bit of a punky Joan Jett ... Åtgärdsprogrammet plays punk as it should be and I want to hear more of .... Bakverk 80 is a disc I think of. Contorture plays crustpunk which is really tough ... out with the emotions only. Last on the first page is Bombettes and their charming punk rock is always nice to hear. The B-side has Kafferep as the first band and they sound like a Skitslickers on speed ... Mary's Kids has a girl on vocals, singing really well and it's really a punk group I want to hear more of .. one of the better bands of the record.. totally clear. Könsförrädare has a sound that is different from the other groups on the record ... a little more post-punk ... Korsfäst has two songs with here is anger personified ..... good. My old favorite .... the girls in Körbärsfettera driving his Vakna upp för fan and as usual it is music that is favorite music ... punk rock with sing-along potential .... Never heard Gothenburg group City Saints but "fear" that they are good and their tough punk rock is like a slap in the stomach .. like Gbg Sound would sing in English and listened some on HC. Three groups left and first up is Headlines enough is my absolute favorite group this old man that I am, melodic punk rock in true 77-spirit ... M: 40 is an old favorite HC group and they continue to live up to it with his hard music . Last out is Ursut with a fairly long song that grinds us down ... cheeky. All in all, a summary ... punk live on well in Sweden. 12/6-2014
Otra joya rescatada por parte de los ""arqueólogos de punk estatal"" de Vómito Punkrock Records, Victor y Malicia.
Ésta vez reeditan en vinilo, acompañado de un libreto brutal de 30x30cm con 10 páginas repletas de información, esta cinta original del 86, del concierto que dieron estas 3 bandas en octubre de 1985 en la Sala Zeleste de Barcelona. Arte hecho para la ocasión por el gran Rafa Doc.
Vandaalit was a group of youngsters in the mid-seventies playing rock'n'roll, but hearing Leave Home by The Ramones changed everything, and soon the band changed style to rough, simple punk rock. This is their debut album from 1979, and it's also one of the rarest Ramones-influenced punk records in Finland. The Svart reissue is an exact replica of the original, with the rare 12 page booklet.
In 2011, Vånna Inget released their debut album ""ALLVAR"" and quickly became a name associated with great expectations in their native Sweden. Three years on and they have been nominated for a Grammy in their home country and played all over Europe and The U.S.
Where ""Allvar"" found power in its urgent and relentless delivery, ""Ingen Botten"" is a more nuanced affair. Sharp guitar riffs and shimmering organ melodies are woven together with an attentive and dynamic rhythm section and the band has taken the tempo down in a few places and left room for the arrangements to breath a bit more. Karolina's vocals have grown to reach even higher levels of poignant intensity and the band compliments this by nurturing their songs to a maturity between raw, punkish nerve and melodic sensibility. The band proved their recording prowess by tracking the entire album live, straight down on to 2"" tape at the legendary Swedish studio, Varispeed. Sonically, the recording stands with some of the best punk records ever produced. Coupled with Vånna Inget's universal appeal and ability to turn claustrophobic themes of confinement and desperation into something that feels uplifting and liberating, ""Ingen Botten"" is sure to win over new and old fans alike.
Les Végétator’s par Philippe Journet :
Je devais avoir 15 ou 16 ans, mon oncle avait une entreprise de juke-box à Lisieux. Il m'en a installé un dans ma chambre, c'était un fou de r'n'blues, mon beau-frère avait une guitare, j'ai commencé à suivre la zique sur ce juke-box, c'était le début d'une longue histoire.
1972. Grande année pour moi, viré du lycée et premier album des New-York Dolls. Avec Dominique, premier groupe et premier concert au bahut qui m'avait viré. Premier grand concert, les Who à la fête de l'humanité. Premier boulot aussi et première vraie guitare, une Epiphone rouge comme celle d'Alvin Lee des Ten Years After. J'étais fan de tous ces groupes et je connaissais les morceaux par cœur, Slade, Status Quo, Deep Purple, ZZ Top.
1975. Putain d'armée, mais on y avait monté un groupe de r'n'roll avec des potes. Tellement impressionné, le capitaine nous a autorisés à jouer en civil. En un an j'avais fait des progrès énormes et surtout découvert Doctor Feelgood. Première Télécaster.
1977. Londres avec Daniel. Claque dans la gueule, The Motors au Marquee, et puis plein de groupes, c'était décidé, je voulais faire pareil.
Premier groupe avec Daniel et Hervé mon frère, PHIL AND THE HOT DOGS parce que Eddie and the Hot Rods, premier concert et première radio.
1978. Rencontre d'Alain dans le bar où je travaillais, je jouais dedans avec ma gratte et mon ampli, c'était un vrai bordel ce bar, le patron me laissait seul, situé auprès du carmel à Lisieux, que des descentes de flics. Alain étant bassiste, on monte le groupe, ce sera VEGETATOR'S (Vibrator's). Première répét', ça roulait dur, trio infernal. Ensuite Doudou est arrivé au chant, concert d'enfer, les fringues de grand-père à pas cher, impossible de nous classer !!! Le Golf Drouot, le Rose Bonbon, Best, Rock & Folk, les titres des chansons, Vatican, Ballade pour un curé, J'suis complètement fêlé, le corbillard pour transporter le matériel, les insultes aux babas cool, le départ de Dominique, l'arrivée d'Hervé comme guitariste, les maisons de disques, je me rappelle chez RCA, on a bouffé les plantes vertes parce que ça faisait chier d'attendre, dehors tout le monde... Mais c'était pas grave, tant qu'on jouait, rien à foutre. Mais on avait une bonne cote, le côté pas sérieux, la provoc', ni punk, ni rockeurs, ça intrigue !!!
Cela a duré 3 ans, on n'a pas bouffé grand-chose, par contre on a bu, on s'est éclaté comme des malades, rencontré des gens intéressants. PHIL, DAN, AL, les VEGETATOR'S !!!!!
1981. Dernière formation avec Joël comme bassiste, mais le cœur n'y était pas donc il fallait stopper. Ce sera le début des SAIGNEURS.
Chicago psych/krautrock band's TiM debut! Coltan differs slightly from their previous efforts, the band's motorik krautrock drive has been tamed in favour of more atmospheric and abstract soundscapes. Includes download.
The debut full-length bruiser from San Juan, Puerto Rico's LOS VIGILANTES. Fourteen original tracks of juvenile delinquent garage-punk smash. Heavy on the '60s side with a healthy dose of droopy / 50s doo-wop back-up vocals, rocked with additional organs, tape loops and swagger. Jota Vigilante filled in for DAVILA 666's lead guitarist on their maiden European tour and played lead guitar on Davila 666's Tan Bajo LP.
You would think that because only about 60 miles separate the cities of Athens and Atlanta, Georgia that maybe the same sphere of influence would affect both. In the past decade, Atlanta has seen the growth of a creatively sustainable music scene, and we sort of forgot about our neighbors up the road. There is no shortage of great bars, restaurants and clubs in Athens, but it’s been a little while since an Athens band made me want to jump in my car and make the trip. Vincas have given me that much needed excuse. Blood Bleeds is a monster of a record. They are playing dark and heavy songs that at once will draw Birthday Party and Gun Club comparisons. I’d bet they have some later Scientists records in their collections too as there is a discernible element of swampishness weaving itself throughout the record. It’s sexy in a super-bitter dark chocolate kind of way and has a pounding cohesiveness throughout. Vincas demonstrate total control from start to finish, and it’s pretty clear that they didn’t just stumble onto a style of music like this. We truly hope the folks over in Athens realize what they’ve got on their hands. Vincas self released the first 100 copies with screen printed covers. Good luck finding them. We do not have any. There are 500 total. All copies are on black vinyl and come with a download code.
Nueva edicion del sello Vomitopunkrock Records, saldra en Abril!! Solo 300 copias de pedazo banda de OI! inglesa. Todos sus singles y 5 temas en directo, lo unico que editaron, por fin despues de muchos años en vinilo! Todo un clasico de punk de los 80!
A killer, steady boppin' pop punk assault, with some heavy metal guitar shredding thrown in for good measure, delivered by a lady and two dudes from Ottawa.
Contiene las dos maketas de VOMITO, la primera como VOMITO SOCIAL y la segunda ya recortando su nombre a VOMITO. De esta edicion de 500 unidades hay una edicion limitada de 200 unidades con vinilo transparente + fanzine + un poster de 90x60.
Tenemos que dar las gracias a Miguelon de ANTI REGIMEN, por pasarnos las demos, ya que eran muy dificiles de conseguir, ni el propio grupo las tenia.
Cada maketa consta de 10 temas, en la bandcamp podras escuchar algunos temas del vinilo.
El fanzine contiene fotos ineditas del primer concierto que realizo VOMITO SOCIAL en 1984, ademas de comentarios de amigos y gente cercana al grupo.
Es un pequeño homenaje tanto a Victor (cantante) y Dani (Bateria) fallecidos los dos.
12 temas en directo que dieron en Mallorca en 1983. Fotos ineditas y vinilo de 180 gr. Editado por Punkaway.
MATTHEW MELTON previously of the spontaneously combusted BARE WIRES, has created a lean, mean gang of masterful power pop tunes with just the right blend of studio sweetness, teenage angst, and gritty bubblegum. All killer, no filler. Twelve hot-to-trot tracks packaged with a download code.
Matthew Melton has done it again! Just when it seemed as though he’d reached the pinnacle of power pop confection with last year’s excellent Someone for You, he surpasses all expectations with his latest masterpiece Young Reckless Hearts. With the unlikely addition of cello serving only to bitter-sweeten their teenage pop fantasias, Warm Soda delivers deviously barbed hooks that instantly lodge themselves in your memory. The wide-screen technicolor production was done by Melton himself at his Fuzz City Studios in Oakland. This is the record to fall in love to (or possibly out of love to) in 2014.
Warsong are a relatively new band from Spain featuring members of Insomnio and No Escape. Warsong deliver the goods with their debut Lp entitled Ancient Times. Ancient Times features 9 tracks of melodic and anthematic songs that have definite Strike Anywhere, Dag Nasty, and Red Tape Parade type influences. The nine songs on Ancient Times make Warsong easily accesible and will appeal to fans of both hardcore and punk in a way bands such as Strike Anywhere, Avail, and Hot Water Music can do. The guys in Warsong craft some really well done melodic hardcore/punk with a slight rock edge to it. Ancient Times is a definite must for fans of Strike Anywhere, Hot Water Music, and other rock leaning bands of that nature. Good stuff. Enjoy!
White Faces debut S/T LP is a perfect mixture of pop gone blasted, from the fiery L. A. swagger vox, to the driving bass, to the completely under-out-of-control drum bashing, this album lives up to the hype, and will be spinning on your turntable for quite some time. From the furious, out of the gates riff of “Disconnected” this album will keep your attention as one after another of well written, pop laden, cock-sure rock ‘n rollers are feverishly screaming out of your speakers. The albums “Happy” and “Ain’t Havin’ Me” are the perfect example of the bands direction, tight, dance-able pop garage with a West Coast swagger. Also includes a cover of Milk ‘N Cookies “Nots”!
What a sigh of relief these are finally here. If you're still in the dark on this one, The White Wires are a three piece from Ottawa. This LP was originally released by Going Gaga Records on Novemer 8, 2008 in a quantity of 325 copies. Those of you lucky enough to score a copy before it went out of print were well aware of how urgently this record needed to be available again, and we are flattered to be the people responsible for that. It's a perfect summer time record yet it is just in time for the holiday season for the second consecutive year. The White Wires have found a harmonious balance somewhere between the lands of goofy and cool, and their songs reflect that brilliantly. This LP features nine songs of maximum sing-a-long-ability without a trace of pretense. A couple of listens and you'll be planning imaginary BBQ's with The White Wires as your entertainment and guests of honor. 100 are on limited edition red vinyl, so buy them up before the November 3rd release date. This album is also available for download pretty much anywhere that you can download music.
Tras la meteórica edición y reedición de su primer lp, ya había ganas de escuchar este nuevo disco que el sello de Oregon anunciaba como nuevo fichaje. Entre medias, pequeños disparos de punk con nervio en formato de siete pulgadas. Portada de esas que a un servidor le encantan y temas que giran a 45 revoluciones en formato de lp y el trío de Ottawa que sigue el mismo esquema que nos atrapó con su primer álbum, guitarras rudas pero sin complicarse en buscar nada nuevo, melodías arrebatadoras, canciones de poco más de dos minutos y temas para caer en sus redes como “Did you forget my name”, “I can tell”, “Be true to your school (‘til you get kicked out)”, “Popularity”, si cuando eras un “chinorris” te gustaban los Buzzcocks no tienes excusa para pasar por alto este disco, que a medida que sigue sonando con temas como “Hands” y “Summer girl” hace que mi cabeza vuele por completo. (Oscarkotj-2011)
Starting out, we had a deliberate intention to make an album a little bit different than our previous two. This time, the intention was to make a pop album. We wanted to make a record that had some dynamics, with lots of ups and downs. At the same time, we wanted to still have a lot of variety on the album from one song to the next. I think these are some of our best songs yet.
One of the first English language punk rock bands in Finland, Widows put out a few 7 inches before recording their first and last album 'Fun?' on Poko Records in 1980. Side A features studio material while the flipside has new songs performed live in Helsinki 1980. The Svart reissue features the original layout expanded to gatefold and featuring rare photos and news clippings.
Algo más melódico que el material al que nos tienen acostumbrados los de Incógnito records, llegan los Wimps. Desde los países bajos, pero sonando alto, llega esta mezcla entre el Lo Fi R'N'R de Steve McQueens y la melodía sucia de Burger Kings (el grupo paralelo de Steve McQueens). Para completar el cocktail añádele a eso un toque a lo Supersuckers pero en plan meloso y unas gotitas muy suaves de Country. Se les puede emparentar con los Demonics, incluso, a veces llegan a aburrir tanto como ellos; pero cuando llegas a la versión de Rezillos ("Somebody's gonna get their head kicked in tonight") descubres que tienen más estilo y clase que aquellos demonios de tercera división. Si te gusta el punk melódico con algo de suciedad, te gustará.
This time out, THE WRONG WORDS have enlisted a string section, horns, & woodwinds to carefully guide them through the pop landscape. Songwriter JOSH MILLER still burns with the fiery restlessness that peppered his tunes on their 2011 s/t debut, but rather than bash & crash their way thru a two-and-a-half-minute pop ditty, they ease their way from verse to chorus without sacrificing any of their token pop smarts. For most pop bands, "maturing" comes at a cost; sacrificing hooks, watering down the sound, or altering their look—The Wrong Words have dodged that bullet by acknowledging these new elements as pre-existing in the nature of song, ready to be plucked from the tree from which they sprung at no cost whatsoever.
X-BELIEBIG was founded in Wiener Neustadt in 1980 by the two then-17-year-olds Rene Adamecz (guitars/vocals), Franz Heuschneider (bass), as well as Bernd Bechtloff (drums)—Bechtloff had just turned 13 years old at the time. The primary musical focus was at first German-language punk, although none of the musicians considered themselves punk rockers.They rehearsed for several months and, in 1980, gave their first concert at the Snack-Bar, a highly popular venue in Wiener Neustadt at the time. Performances near Wiener Neustadt with various smaller bands from Wiener Neustadt (among them Zerbrechlich and Dämmerattacke), mostly in self-organized concerts, followed. The band later went on to perform in Vienna, at the Amerlinghaus, Metropol, Gassergasse and the U4.In the spring of 1981, the original bassist [close] Franz Heuschneider switched to the Wiener Neustadt band Dämmerattacke and was replaced by Zoltán Daróczi. Starting at this time, a clear change in the band’s musical focus, away from punk and towards music inspired by the band Joy Division but with German texts, could be observed.In the spring of 1981 a cassette recording was recorded for the Panza-Platte label, and the single Leben ist Blut / Illusionen (english: Life is Blood / Illusions) was recorded in the summer of 1981.
As 1978 wore on, we thanked God for the likes of UK Subs and Angelic Upstarts, and here in Brizzle...the mighty X-Certs! With Clive Arnold (vocals and guitar), Simon Justice (guitar), Taf (bass) and Neil Mackie (drums), The X-Certs served up welcome blasts of Clash-style punk anthems. They were politically charged and passionate, friendly and down to earth, and a great live act, but for some reason their recordings were relatively few and far between. One track, Blue Movies, on Hearbeat Records' 4-Alternatives EP, and another called Anthem on the same label's acclaimed Avon Calling compilation album. And that's yer lot with the original line up.
This edition includes a Limited Edition Insert with stories from all four members of the band, Introduction by Shane Baldwin and never seen before pictures.
Artwork completed by the legendary Bristol designer Sam Giles
X-Prays son un trío madrileño de Punk formado por miembros de Webelos, Grupo Sub-1, Obediencia... Surgen de las cenizas de los desaparecidos Asiatics con una propuesta más agresiva, más directa y, definitivamente, más Punk. Las flipantes voces femeninas son las protagonistas absolutas y en seguida traerán a tu memoria a grupos KBD como VKTMS, Electric Deads o UXA. Tampoco desentonarían compartiendo cartel con bandas más actuales del calibre de Spastics, Tyrades o Gorila Angreb. A pesar de ello, no renuncian en ningún momento a tener un sonido propio y composiciones originales, que combinan, de un modo bastante original, la sencillez instrumental con unas audaces melodías vocales. El resultado: hits instántaneos tan pegadizos como inmediatos. Pero lo mejor es que eches una escucha y juzgues tú mismo. http://soloespunk.bandcamp.com/album/x-prays
Great new band featuring current and ex members of the SEDATIVES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, LAST COMMUNION and MOTHER'S CHILDREN. Combining elements of early-90s Lookout-era punk (Green Day, Monsula, Samiam, Cringer) with a prominent 70s/80s UK influence, Year Zero effectively crams three decades of punk into one digestible mass for the ears. If you like any of the aformentioned bands, or bands like the Replacements, Husker Du, the Jam or the Buzzcocks, you’ll dig this.
The Championship Cup nos devuelve a The Yellow Melodies después de un largo periodo de inactividad, tiempo que a la vista de lo aquí presente ha sido aprovechado. Las seis canciones que integran The Championship Cup logran atraer nuestra atención de modo sincero, The Championship Cup es una perfecta muestra de cómo no complicarse la vida en este oficio del Pop, directa, enérgica y con bonitos toques de cuerda que acompañan un estribillo que incita a ser seguido por el oyente.
Oh no… it's THE YUM YUMS again! The world's most famous power-pop band is back with another album! Their fourth full-length is called THE YUM YUMS …Play Good Music, and it's absolutely true! It's stacked with catchy hi-energy, guitar-driven power-pop songs, complete with sugary multi-layered harmonies and lyrics that seems to be stolen from some 12 year-old girl's diary.
Like Joss Hutton once wrote in Bucketfull Of Brains Magazine, “Let's consider the three minute pop-song for a second or two: so simple in it's construction, so inscrutable in it's perfection, so many who have tried and failed! For me the YUM YUMS have been THE band to watch over the past few years, their perfect (yep, it's true) take on the ""power-pop"" thang is a source of constant pleasure and amuzement”.
A pretty good description that is, but what more can we say about those ambassadors of power-pop? They deliver REAL POWER-POP, with the word power written in capital letters. Putting together the essential ingrediences of the music of the RAMONES, the PLIMSOULS and the OHIO EXPRESS, the 6t's and the 7t's, bubblegum and punk, pop and rock'n'roll, just to create their very own YUMMY sound.
So, what we're talking about is extremely catchy pop-music with a fat, rockin' guitar sound, well executed vocal-lines, ridin'-on-the-waves drums and a crunchy punk feel to it. It simply makes you feel good!
Their previous album ""Whatever Rhymes With Baby"" took THE YUM YUMS touring through Spain, Italy, Germany, Japan and USA.
Zack Zack is the new band from Smail and Lotze from the legendary Berlin Punk outfit THE SHOCKS. They were completed by Andy from THE CREEKS and the drummer from THE MINUS APES. This is the continuation of the last Shocks album, but instead highspeed Punkrock you'll get more poppy melodies. The album contains 10 originals plus a cover from the New Zealands finest 60s garage Punk Band THE BLUE STARS. Most songs are sung in German, but there are some English parts as well.
Good news for all Sexbots out there: ZEBRASSIERES are back & surprise, surprise: it’s called “I Am A Human” - a full length packed with 10 crisply new songs of their synth-driven frantic power-pop.
This new party platter brings some upgrades especially in song writing, which is rich in variety so the artwork is more colourful. Even more microphones are in the zoo, so this comes with additional & perfect fitting male/female vocal parts to let the party get closer to your eardrums before you go completely nuts.
From the handclaps guided intro-stomp of the titletrack, via the REATARD-ish “Enter The Third Dimension” and two more bouncing poppers through to the psychedelic head-banging finale “Opinion” on side A.
One thing is for sure: It’s not a test! It’s ZEBRASSIERES at their best! Maybe, there’s only one urgent desire awaken right now. Don’t worry!
The first song on side B name it & the whole thing is to accomplish it – “We Want More” – so the party continues without a changed mood... “Do You Wrong?”.
It is recorded by Paul ""Yogi"" Granger @ The Meatlocker, Ottawa (URANIUM COMEBACK, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, WHITE WIRES) and mastered by Hajji Husayn Mastering at the North London Bomb Factory (RED DONS, MOTHER'S CHILDREN).
Por fin un LP de las zorras mañas, 5 años después de sacarles un single, Discos Regresivos tiene el honor de sacar este LP (junto con Bazofia,Go Mongo y Collectors Series) a estos punkis verdaderos.Discazo!!
