Alex / GRAVE MISTAKE
NEW FOR 8/31/11:
NIGHT FEVER "NEW BLOOD" LP (TANKCRIMES/NO WAY)
Yup, notorious k-townsters Night Fever have finally released their debut 12" after spreading havoc for some time. Muscular, pissed off, confident, defiant and macho-esque hardcore to the nines. Think early 80s Boston HC fornicating with Zero Boys, Poison Idea and Void. In fact first time I've heard this I was thinking of a more cockrock-ish and slickly produced Void. The 8 tracks possess aggression, speed and melody, amazing guitar shredding from Matthias, and Salomon's impressive voice that Danzig would kill for. First pressing w/ silkscreened cover limited to only 300 copies!!!
ARCTIC FLOWERS "REVERIES" LP (INOMICAL)
Debut 12" from this Portland band who have more of a post-punk / anarcho sound than most of the crusty bands that city is known for. This is absolutely ripping stuff... it has that melancholy Wipers vibe that Portland is known for, and when you combine the big, melodic guitars with the anarch-sounding, tom-heavy drums and the Crass-like lady vocalist you get some pretty damn unique and powerful. Apparently this one is VERY limited too, so you'd best act now as there probably won't be a restock.
TOTAL CONTROL "HENGE BEAT" LP (IRON LUNG)
The combination of all their previous work and a steady live band has come together to form the great Henge Beat LP. Beautifully housed in a bright European-art-designed gatefold sleeve. These guys have outdone themselves with this one. Musically it rests somewhere between late 70's UK new wave a-la Ha Ha Ha era ULTRAVOX and the "now sound" EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING Aussie garage that we all know and love. Add a dash of hopeful Krautrock flavor and the recipe is a smashing success.
POISON PLANET "UGLY TRUTHS VOL 1" (CTW)
'Ugly Truths vol 1' compiles the 'Oblivious' and 'Undermine' EP's onto one 12" and adds another 4 songs for good measure. The LP comes in a 12"x24" fold over jacket and is accompanied by an 8 page lyric booklet with new art and essays not included in the original EP's. The combination of additional songs, art, and commentary hopefully make it worth owning even if you already own the EP's.
NOISE ORDINANCE - V/A MRR COMPILATION LP (MRR)
This brand new Bay Area comp features some of the most exciting and dangerous sounds of the local scene over the past few years, including MORPHEME, NEEDLES, RANK/XEROX, NN, SHOTWELL, BLACK RAINBOW, SURRENDER, CONQUEST FOR DEATH, ACEPHALIX, AIRFIX KITS, RULETA RUSA, FACE THE RAIL, ECOLI, MIGRAINE, YEAR ONE, LOVE SONGS, SUICIDE BOMB, HUNX AND HIS PUNX, ACTS OF SEDITION, FIX MY HEAD, I WILL KILL YOU FUCKER, DUCK AND COVER, and the FLESHIES. And (of course) it comes with a newsprint zine-sized insert with a page from each band and some killer Bay Area punk photo spreads from local photographers.
WAX MUSEUMS "ZOO FULL OF RAMONES" LP (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
Billy’s Room, TX. Peering across the floor through beer cans, garbage and vomit-encrusted B-movie clamshells...something moves. You slowly look into a shaking cheeseburger bag...AND THE WAX MUSEUMS EMERGE TO CLAW YOUR NOSE OFF! It lands on a rotting hamburger. You die. They've crafted the sickest spectacle of partying, sharp humor, and Steinberger basses since they crawled out of a VCR in 2006. And if you've had an eyeball (Yes? No?!)...you've seen them. But do not dismay if you've missed any of their out-of-print wax previously issued on Hozac, Douchemaster, Kenrock, Rehab or Fashionable Idiots. Because here's the entire carnivorous monkey-house in one 24-track LP...Zoo Full Of Ramones! Our scientists at TTT have recreated the very primordial ooze of the band. Returning to print every dose of concentrated hyperactivity, and enhancing them with an extra beaker of UNRELEASED, and rare material, circa 2006-2008 AD
USELESS EATERS "DAILY COMMUTE" LP (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
”Oozing with sleaze, anger, and hooks (what could be more beautiful than that?!), this first proper album from Useless Eaters captures completely tape-fried 70's punk beauty by joining the musicality of the Stranglers and the Adverts with the snot-nose antics of the Lewd or Vomit Pigs. With the proximity effect of the Memphis scene circa 2003-2007. Compared to earlier output, Daily Commute has a beefier sound, though still culled from the same manic recording style. Content-wise, this is the direct result of being stranded abroad, weirded out and pissed off while readjusting from the sudden death of bandmate JAY REATARD. Hands down the most complete sounding and best assembled of SETH SUTTON’s output yet. Previous singles on Shattered, Goner, Goodbye Boozy and more. Highly recommended to anyone constantly blasting their KBD faves or UK D.I.Y. weirdo shit...this is a nice 'lil gem mined from those parts!”
USELESS EATERS "CHEAP TALK - THE SINGLES" LP (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
"Cheap Talk is that shit you know to expect from USELESS EATERS. Here are fifteen tracks selected from SETH’s killer string of out of print 7-inches, plus four unreleased songs, exclusive to this LP. If you don't know you really betta axe somebody. Look for a brand new Useless Eaters LP due out on TTT later this spring!” Previous singles released by Jay Reatard's Shattered Records, Italy's Goodbye Boozy, Goner and others.
BURNING ITCH "ST" LP (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
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. Recommended pairing: goes great with shooting fireworks off the Smokey Mountains at college students.
TEST PATTERNS "BLACKOUT" LP (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
Rapid-fire power-pop/punk from Pittsburgh fusing ‘70s punk and hardcore with sticky bubblegum goo. Think early Registrators, Teengenerate, Raspberries, Nerves, Big Star, Teenage Head, Nikki and the Corvettes etc. DAN (RADIOBEATS, ROT SHIT) and YAGO (GITO GITO HUSTLER) split male/female vocals and combine dual guitar layers for more sweet ‘n’ sharp little candy fragments than a lollipop busted on your head. Solid bass/drums tie up all the sweetness in focused aggression. Packaged with a poster and insert.
YOUNG OFFENDERS / GIANT HAYSTACKS "SPLIT" LP (625)
The now-defunct Giant Haystacks were a Bay Area band that played an art-punk style that brings to mind bands like Wire, Minutemen or Gang Of Four, while Young Offenders take a more melodic approach, taking cues from The Wipers and Really Red.
HYGIENE "PUBLIC SECTOR" LP (LA VIDA ES UN MUS)
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.
BIG EYES "HARD LIFE" LP (DON GIOVANNI)
Debut full length from BIG EYES! "Big Eyes has that don’t-mess-with-me pop-punk sound reminiscent of ‘80s, Joan-Jett style punk. A trio consisting of a female vocalist/guitarist, bass player and drummer, Big Eyes captures that female teenage-angst sound, without sounding too…well, teenage-angsty. Hard Life isn’t too in-your-face; the music isn’t abrasive, and the lyrics aren’t threatening. It does, however, encompass a certain blunt attitude. Song titles like “Your Lies,” “Pretend to Care,” “I Know You’re Wrong” and “Joke’s On You” are reflective of the overall tone of the album as far as the lyrics go. Not all of the songs focus on love gone wrong, though. The final track of the album, “Tired All The Time,” is exactly what it sounds like: “Wake up every morning feeling tired/ Just wasting my day trying to get wired/ But I just feel sick/ Sick and tired” — a feeling to which most everyone can surely relate. There aren’t many negative comments to make about Hard Life. It’s a worthwhile listen, perfect for those nights you just need to dance alone in your room." - stereosubversion.com
RIVETHEAD "THE CHEAP WINE OF YOUTH" LP (RECESS)
As the pound-for-pound contender against the primest of the prime Queers or Screeching Weasel. Sad, tuneful, poignant, songs about blowing up banks and then kissing, east-bound double stacks, and the Midwest. Members went on to start or fill out rosters of bands including BANNER PILOT, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS, and DEAR LANDLORD. A must have for any fans of those bands or that style.
RATIONAL ANIMALS "BOCK ROCK PARADE" LP (KATORGA)
"A true heavy metal band" from Rochester, NY, Rational Animals have exceeded even our overly-generous expectations with their debut LP, Bock Rock Parade. The band made a name for itself on its first two 7"s with its modern stylings on late-era Black Flag and general Greg Ginn-worship, but it's clear that the band has come a long way from that point. Incorporating a wide variety of newer influences into its already atypical hardcore blueprint, the band has developed and progressed its sound into something absolutely fresh and essential.
RIPPER "INTO OBLIVION" LP (BLACKWATER)
10 tracks of driving metal punk madness! all the energy of motorhead with the punk hooks that made all the new wave of british heavy metal bands so great. driving bass lines, unrelenting drums, and ripping guitar solos throughout the entire album! it's a wonder how these guys (and girl) managed to become Portland, OR's very own heavy metal punk heroes. Comes packaged in a gatefold jacket with lyrics on a printed inner sleeve. Artwork throughout being drawn by the infamous Halseycaust.
LOBOTOMIA "NADAE COMO PARECE" LP (BLACKWATER)
Re-issue of this brazilian thrash punk masterpiece! 8 raging tracks of top notch punk metal crossover in the vein of ratos de porao and D.R.I. with a bit more of a hardcore edge and some awesome cover artwork! One of the greatest bands of the hardcore scene in Brazil, they started in 1984 as a raw hardcore band in the vein of the UK 82 generation, and then going to a more thrash metal direction, doing the crossover style. They appeared in the Ataque Sonoro compilation of 1985 along with a few other comps. and have two LP’s, released in the 80’s, Lobotomia in 1986 and this Nada É Como Parece (stands for "nothing is like it seems") in 1989. Re-issued in it's original format with additional english translations on the inner sleeve.
LEOPARDS, THE "KANSAS CITY SLICKERS" LP (SING SING)
By 1977, the year of Kansas City Slickers’ release, most bands had happily ensconced themselves in one niche or another--one was either Punk or Power Pop or New Wave or ---- (fill in the trend of your choice), but The Leopards fell into no such handy category. Kansas City Slickers was unique for its time--certainly no other record of its day sounds remotely like it--and remains so today. Back then its uniqueness baffled critics who, in the few places where the album was actually reviewed, did little more than point to the album’s Kinks influence. While the influence of The Kinks, The Beach Boys, The Easybeats and other Sixties groups is indeed evident on the album, such a superficial assessment does not begin to do justice to the cornucopia of sound on Kansas City Slickers. Herein rock n’ roll meets ragtime, old Hollywood musicals and other forms of early 20th Century American music, a delightfully original melange you will not taste elsewhere. Recorded and mixed at Moon Studios--ie, the basement of Dennis Pash’s parents’ house on Maggie Lane in Kansas City, Kansas--the production and muscianship reaches a level of sophistication not often associated with basement recordings. Even so, protected by lack of technology from slick by-the-rote machinations of the professional studio, Kansas City Slickers retains its basement charm. When Dennis Pash and Kevin Sanders first decided to release privately pressed records as The Leopards in 1975 it was quite a revolutionary strategy, the DIY ethos of punk still a few years in the future. The world would simply have to catch up at some point in time. Judging by the appreciative audience Kansas City Slickers has grown over the years--this despite its exceeding rarity (only 1,000 copies of the album were pressed)--that time may very well be now.
CLAP "HAVE YOU REACHED YET?" LP (SING SING)
Like most followers of rare seventies rock esoterica I first heard about HAVE YOU REACHED YET? via the pages of the now-legendary BOMP fanzine. It was the surf issue if I recall correctly, and editor Greg Shaw, in the course of a pretty positive review, mentioned Clap's ability to mix up what seemed like a healthy late-sixties punk rock attitude with the prevailing hard rock winds of the early-seventies from whence this album came. The album was a charm with the hefty Rolling Stones influences so common of the day being reshaped by a strong Shadows of Knight snarl all filtered through an early seventies heavy metal consciousness giving us...a sound and style that although part and parcel to the stoner seventies mentality had a totally unique and refreshing approach that sounded as if it could stand on its own not only in 1972 but 1966 or even 1987 for that matter. It was teenage rock & roll that continued to sound so long after the entire teen mystique of the sixties and seventies shriveled away, yet it was hard enough for even the most experienced pothead at the supermarket to roll joints to during his coffee break. So for you youngsters here's an example of what "do it yourself" rock used to mean when you pretty much had to create your own fun, energies, and lives even from scratch and for your oldsters, now's the time to drag out the boas, the mascara and the nylons and re-live the post-Vietnam era the right way. Of course if you get arrested don't come complain' to me, but then again wouldn't that only add to the overall glam/slam effect so common during those rather peculiar times?
PREACHERS, THE "MOANIN'" LP (DIONYSUS)
Here is the entire output of The Preachers (and their later incarnation, JOHN ENGLISH & THE LEMONDROPS). This LA area '60s punk band is best known for their scoarching version of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?" which appeared on an early volume of Pebbles. The band had the total punkish sound, lyrics and image. They even wore preacher suits -- pretty brave for 1965! This pounding slab of '60s insanity finally gives justice to one of the toughest sounding garage bands to come out of Los Angeles.
COCK SPARRER "SHOCK TROOPS" LP (PIRATES PRESS)
"Shock Troops" is the debut album by punk rock band Cock Sparrer released in 1982 on Razor Records. Now available through Pirates Press Records, this pinnacle record is something that should be available and affordable to everyone looking to invest in some punk roots. These uncoated jackets are top notch and the mastering for vinyl has this sounding better than it ever has. Third pressing now available on 180 gram, black and green "camouflage" vinyl and limited to 1,000 copies.
RIPCORD "DISCOGRAPHY PART II" LP (SKULD)
Influenced by brutal US bands like Siege, Negative Approach, and Infest, Ripcord managed to create a sound of their own by melting together this sound with their UK roots and were among the best bands that came from this fucking island called Great Britain in the late 80's. This is the 2nd part of their discography containing the best songs from the Harvest Hardcore 7" plus their best but last LP.
URBAN WASTE "S/T" LP (MAD AT THE WORLD)
A re-issue of the sole EP by one of the most sought after and enigmatic bands from the earliest days of New York hardcore. Despite the obscurity of the original release, Urban Waste was made famous through their signature style of blown-out, over the top hardcore punk replete with trademark menacing buzzsaw guitars and piercing vocals. This is an official release. Now available again on vinyl. 12"ep includes free MP3 download of the entire album.
WEEKEND NACHOS "WORTHLESS" LP (DEEP SIX)
On the new LP, the band display some of the most technical, thrashing moments of unadulterated powerviolence, as well as the thickest, most crushing riffs heard from them yet. What makes them even better is the schizophrenic weaving of these two styles that the group so swiftly pulls off. Songs like "Frostbitten" demonstrate this with perfection, transitioning unexpectedly from ominous guitar chugs into a fast array of d-beats and a mix of high-pitched screams and classic Weekend Nachos vocals
WEEKEND NACHOS "UNFORGIVABLE" LP (DEEP SIX)
Weekend Nachos feature members of Harms Way and are once again mixing the powerviolence of Infest and Crossed Out with burly metallic guitars and masterful riffage, totaling twelve tracks on "Unforgivable."
EXTORTION "DEGENERATE" LP (DEEP SIX)
This is it! The best EXTORTION record! Their first full length, finally available again through DEEP SIX RECORDS. This is a masterpiece of modern powerviolence and in my opinion on of the best Australian hardcore LPs of all time. Don't miss out on it this time round! Absolutely Essential!
EXTORTION "SICK" LP (DEEP SIX)
Extortion once again set out to make ears bleed with 15 tracks of pure powerviolence that worships at the altar of bands like Crossed Out, Neanderthal and Infest. Their songs whip up into a frenzy of blast beats and growls and slow down into agonizing sludge bits.
ELECTRIC FUNERAL "D-BEAT NOISE ATTACK/MAKE A CHANGE" LP (SHOGUN)
More noisy d-beat for your post-apocalyptic, disease-ridden ears. Electric Funeral, who had a few earlier 7"s that are also kicking around the distro, play straight-up, non-gimmicky Discharage-inspired d-beat. I'm pretty sure these guys are trying to make everyone a little less sad that Kawakami from Disclose is no longer with us, as this LP is just about the closest thing to Disclose I've ever heard in my life. Beastly stuff, and I personally always prefer this style in the 12" format.
APPARATUS "HARDCORE RELIGION" LP (SHOGUN)
12 song album including a Disarm (Swe) cover. There's been a long tradition of good, yet obscure bands in Malaysia. Bands like OPPOSITION PARTY took inspiration from Japanese, Finn and Swedish scenes. Here we are with APPÄRATUS: same influences, raw, dark and heavy sound, and songs about being a loser with a brain
NASA SPACE UNIVERSE "ACROSS THE WOUNDED GALAXIES" LP (SHOGUN)
Debut 12" from this Southern California band who are obviously heavily inspired by Die Kreuzen. They have a lot of aspects of DK's sound totally down... the awkward rhythms, the way the bass carries the riff while the guitarist just plays on the three thinnest strings, and of course the demented vocals, which remind me a lot of very early Die Kreuzen. However, despite all of this obvious influence, NSU actually sound really unique... maybe because they're Californians in 2011 and not midwesterners in the early 80s? A fucking ripping LP... you can't get better than this if you're looking for spastic, confusing hardcore.
IRON LUNG "LIFE.IRON LUNG.DEATH" LP (PRANK)
Finally repressed. PRANK and 625 teamed up to re-release IRON LUNG's classic first LP! 700 pressed on colored vinyl. This two-man band been deemed fastcore, grindcore, power-violence, hardcore and numerous other 'tags' that indicate ferocity and speed.
SMASH DETOX "S/T" 7" (PRANK)
A remarkable cross border collaboration, SMASH DETOX is ISHIYA (FORWARD), SOUICHI (FORWARD), MUKAI ( JUDGEMENT), ZAC ( WORLD BURNS TO DEATH,) IIZAWA ( TETSU AREI ) and ANDREA.Two powerful songs - "Shanguri-La" and " Like water" that take elements of the intense hardcore sounds of each of their classic Japanese and American Hardcore bands, but combined to a new and unique whole. Created with intense focus and effort, this recalls many of the classic definitive HG FACT two track EP's that defined the Tokyo punk sound of the late 90's and early 00's, but also has the unmistakable mark of Texas Powerhouse hardcore. Initially recorded and mixed at Toyko's OUR HOUSE studio, Guest Vocal by JACK CONTROL (WORLD BURNS TO DEATH).
COLA FREAKS "FARVEL" 7" (LOCAL CROSS)
Farvel hits the sweet spot between the bands earlier playfulness and more recent intensity. Jumpy music for twitchy people. The b-side is a cover of the Avengers "Car Crash", a long time staple of the Cola Freaks live set.
SHITTY LIMITS "LAST ORDERS" 7" (LA VIDA ES LIN MUS)
THE SHITTY LIMITS return with their first new material in 9 months on this two track released on time for Record Store Day. Written and self recorded in late march 2010 then released less than three weeks later - it's the perfect punk rock statement that DIY works. 'Last orders' is a stylish garage stomper whilst on the flip is 'Selling point' - a straight ahead one minute and 45 seconds of punk rock no nonsense. Limited to just 394 copies and hand stamped.
NERVESKADE/PERDITION "SPLIT" 7" (DISTORT REALITY)
Nerveskade from Portland, OR plays something like the early u.k. thrash bands a la Ripcord with a touch of the Japanese noise punk scene and a power drill to the skull! Perdition plays explosive blown out hardcore punk songs. Thay are from New York City and are raw punk noise addicts.
SLUGZ "SUIT AND TIE" 7" (FEEL IT)
Debut three song single of rapid fire punk from these Richmond rocknrollers. This revved up tuneage will appeal to fans of The Chiefs, Teengenerate, and Social Circkle. What else is there to say? These slugs are one of the most exciting bands in Richmond at the moment, no holds barred.
OUTDOORSMEN "DRUNK DRIVING" 7" (DAGGERMAN)
Hawaii 's power garage trio turned SF rejects, brings us their 2 latest cuts. "Drunk Driving" a slow burning, insanely catchy tune backed with "Dead Meat, a real punk scorcher. Songs mastered by James Flames.
OUTDOORSMEN "YOU ME AND ROCKNROLL" 7" (DAGGERMAN)
A four song seven-inch from San Francisco's reigning kings of 'don't give a fuck' garage-punk. This outing leans on the poppier side of their songbook and has some recent crowd favorites.
OBN III'S "MARK ON YOU" 7" (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
”‘Mark On You’ shifts gears to the dark side of an OBN IIIs curveball. It's still got a rock ‘n’ roll center, snot for miles, and of course the balls-out delivery service. But this one conjures a sadistic presence that pushes down HARD on OBN IIIs' vehicle, forcing eruptions of black smoke from the tune. It comes off something like Mentally Ill's ‘Gacy's Place’ doing its thing waaaaay over on the ‘rock’ end of punk rock. Anyway, this song will make your turntable smell like battery acid, blood, and beer after a couple spins. The other B-side (double B-side, bitch!), ‘Heavy Heart,’ is the rager though. With an upbeat, simple wallop, it's reminiscent of a drunken, Texas-tinged Ivy Green. Which keeps coming up as often as these dudes club me over the head lately. Much more in-line with their other output so far, and a perfect compliment to the other B-side."
OBN III'S "S/T" 7" (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
“OBN IIIs are a 5-piece from Austin, TX and SHIT MOTHERFUCKERS. We’re talking all out rock attack. Total ‘fuck you’ attitude and hard rock vernacular. Don’t let that ‘5-piece’ tag fool ya buddy…there’s no ‘orchestrating symphonies’ here. These two guitars double-deep-fry the beaten rhythms, all propelling front-man ORVILLE from BAD SPORTS into raucous action to serve your ass the real deal. These 4 songs here come from their first recording session to make up this here debut platter. ‘Runnin On Fumes’ opens it up with its mid-paced pounding, setting the tone for the entire guitar-driven aesthetic throughout. Next up, ‘Do My Thing’ absolutely lays out the ballsack on everyone’s chin and whaps you with a dick in the head. This scorcher has all the attitude you could ask of any rock record. Seriously. The flip starts with ‘Mad’ which is equally primal as fuck, tight, loud, and banging the whole way under Orville’s simple but killer proclamation of ‘MAAAAAD!’ And rounding out the slab, OBN’s close with ‘License Plate,’ which sees a cool sheen of Ramonesy chorusing over this melodic banger of a tune. This is great shit. 500 pressed and housed in a nice glue-pocket sleeve.”
UNWED TEENAGE MOTHERS, THE "IF THAT'S LOVE" 7" (TIC TAC TOTALLY)
Debut 45 is pregnant with four songs from THE UNWED TEENAGE MOTHERSs, who share members of LOVER! and BASS DRUM OF DEATH. This record bounces between a nice 'n sweetened-up "hollow-guitar" sounding Ramonesy pop (à la First Base) and the supercharged jolts of the Marked Men. What makes these guys resonate is the knack for hitting on some genius-grade stupidity while also slipping you some "relationship blues" while yer bobbing along.
LOST BOYS "GUEULES PERIMEES" 7" (ROCK BOTTOM)
4 new tunes from this very prolific Punk Hardcore band from France. Still dealing with the same Hardcore California sound from the early 80's. Great! - burnoutzine.net
CITIZENS ARREST "A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS" 7" (OFF THE DISK/DEAD END)
CITIZENS ARREST were a hardcore band that formed in New York and existed from 1988-1990. They played a bunch of shows at legendary punk venues like CBGBs and ABC No Rio. Considered to be a seminal New York hardcore band by many, their short-lived reign exists within a demo, a 7", some comp tracks, and a full-length album. Heavily influenced by S.O.A., NEGATIVE FX, and SIEGE, this record amalgamates gruff vocals with extremely raw, fast hardcore. This limited, handnumbered edition (600) comes with outstanding, fullcolor gatefold cover and the two songs off of the "Look At All The Children Now" compilation! All the songs were remastered!
NO COMMENT "COMMON SENSELESS" 7" (DEEP SIX)
Finally repressed. One of No Comment's earliest recordings, this 7" from 1989 features nine tracks of fast, tight hardcore that helped lay the foundation for the powerviolence scene in Southern California. It features one track that was omitted from the discography.. Classic.
NO COMMENT "DOWNSIDED" 7" (DEEP SIX)
Finally repressed. In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s brutality core was being born with Southern California contributing Crossed Out, Infest, and No Comment. No Comment played fast and hard with songs about the cesspool of human existence, animal rights, and other ills of life on planet Earth.
HAMMER DAMAGE "LAUGH" 7" (LAST LAUGH)
"Just incredible! Laugh = 3:14 and I don’t want it to stop. Total killer punk complete with loud guitars and snotty vocals. Listen to the background guitar how it builds up from a low chugga chugga on one string up till the chorus. And the Ha! Ha! Ha! parts oh my… The solo works too. It’s a complete dorky rock solo but fuck me if it dosen’t blend in perfect. Automatic Lips ain’t as bad as it’s reputation. A little quirky powerpop song that suits me just fine. Actually I think Automatic Lips is great. Give it some spins."
THE INCREDIBLE KIDDA BAND "EVERYBODY KNOWS" 7" (LAST LAUGH)
Kidda band's first single originally released in 1978. UK punk fueled pop. Everbody Knows/ No Nerve
SPIV "OH YOU BEAUTIFUL CHILD" 7" (PYE)
Oh You Beautiful Child is a great example of the perfect Glam Cruncher with its slap-back compressed handclaps, cutting lead, catchy hook and exuberant vocals, it's up there with the best. Little Child starts off like Dear Prudence but then turns into this Radio Birdman/ New Christ styled rocker with the vocalist sounding uncannily like Rob Younger! The single was produced and the A side written by Laurie Marshall - the same guy who was behind Grudge's When Christine Comes Around/ Iâ€™m Gonna Smash Your Face In, Paul St. John (The Flying Saucers Have Landed) and Weeny Bopper (David, Donny And Michael). - http://www.scrammagazine.com
GRUDGE "WHEN CHRISTINE COMES AROUND" 7" (BLACK LABEL)
"If youve ever wondered what Joey Levine might sound like if he was a jilted psychopath, this may be the answer. “Im Gonna Smash Your Face In” is the flip side of a rare 1973 single by the elusive Grudge. Preceded by the equally maniacal “When Christine Comes Around” (which could have very well been titled “Im Gonna Smash Her Face In”), the details of this hilariously creepy slice of bubblegum misogyny remain largely unknown. It is credited to “Laurie Marshall,” a pseudonym of Paul St. John (the same person behind junkshop glam staples such as “The Flying Saucers Have Landed” and Spivs “Oh You Beautiful Child”)." - Popshifter
SKINNIES, THE "KILL THE BEAT" 7" (LAST LAUGH)
(I'm a Dullard)/Out of Order. New Orleans punk more along the lines of the Normals than the Shitdogs or Contenders ie it's on the poppy side. The buzzzzing voice in the intro of “Out Of Order”, the sound of what sounds like a broken crash cymbal and the dubbed vocals makes this perfect.
REALLY RED "CROWD CONTROL" 7" (FANCLUB)
"Here’s Texas Really Reds debute 7inch from 1979. One of the few bands that manage the transition from a great punk rock band to an equally great HC band. Loud guitars and a tight hi hat upfront in the mix makes this irresistible."
BORED STRAIGHT "LOCKED UP" 7" (DATA CONTROL)
The sadly final release from Milwaukee's Bored Straight. With Nicolai moving to Duluth MN, the band was orig just going to be a long distance, every now and again band but now its been put down altogether. A shame really since 'Tinnitus' was a great record and this one is very similar to that if not a tad better? You be the judge. Fast, semi noisy but still mainly straight forward burn midwestern style. They still remind me of a Milwaukee take on early Ecoli perhaps,, and Milwaukee bands DO have their own sound, I swear by that remark! I am also reminded of a modern day Koro meets Geopopel with this band's sound now and I am sure my man Eric wouldn't disagree with that.
FUCKED UP/HAYMAKER "SPLIT" 7" (DEEP SIX)
Fast, violent, and Canadian. Haymaker play fast hardcore while Fucked Up play a combination of mid-tempo growling vocals ala Negative Approach and driving rhythm like Adolescents/Germs.
EXTORTION "CONTROL" 7" (DEEP SIX)
Finally available again through DEEP SIX RECORDS after being out of print for a couple of years. One of the best EXTORTION 7"s, and probably the release that put them on the map for a lot of people. Essential stuff. Modern powerviolence. Australia's finest.
EXTORTION/AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE "SPLIT" 7" (DEEP SIX)
Australia's EXTORTION and AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE team up on this brutal piece of vinyl. AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE offer up more of their frantic, discordant and all around brutal grind/fastcore, while EXTORTION offer some blistering hardcore tracks that will turn into a sickening sludgy crawl without warning. All fans of hardcore and speedcore in the vein of INFEST, SIEGE, MUNICIPAL WASTE, D.R.I. and LACK OF INTEREST will love this splatter!
INSERVIBLES "CUAL ES TU PEDO NERO?" 7" (LEATHER BAR)
3rd 7" from this Mexican punk band and this time they cram three noise-punk blasts onto one side of an EP. This is seriously warped stuff, really lo-fi, sort of like Darkthrone if they had been even more into Discharge. These guys are getting a lot of hype right now, and deservedly so... this is some seriously warped hardcore punk.
THE SLEAZE "CRUSH" 7" (LEATHER BAR)
After a debut single on Fashionable Idiots, these Minneapolis teenagers hit us with a new one-sided 7" with two more tracks of scrappy, raw, and incredibly straightforward garage punk. The music is all energy with a killer vocalist who sounds like he sucked down about 8 helium balloons before hitting the mic. Ripping!
ANDERS THODE "EMMA ECKSTEIN'S NOSE JOB" 7" (LEATHER BAR)
Anders Thode is the bass player for the mighty Cola Freaks, and on this one-sided 7" he gives us two tracks of dark, new wave-ish punk that's not unlike the later (awesome) Cola Freaks stuff, albeit MUCH more lo-fi and with what sounds like a drum machine. If you like quirky, atmospheric, yet incredibly catchy punk you'll need to hear this, but brace your ears... this one is noisy!
CHINESE BURNS "ROHYPNOL" 7" (LEATHER BAR)
One-sided 7" from this Australian garage-punk band who are very much in the vein of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, the Ooga Boogas, and other killer Aussie punk combos. On this slab they deliver a stomping, 4-minute exploration of repetition and catchiness... if you dig ECSR you're bound to like this as well. Excellent stuff.
BURNING ITCH "ME, MYSELF & I" 7" (LEATHER BAR)
One side, one song, one man. Knoxville's Ian Lawrence plays with himself on this burned out loser anthem. Burning Itch brings to mind those great early punk bands who didn't have those great early punk bands to base their sound on, and made it all up on their own. 300 pressed.
TELECOMMANDE "PANIQUE DEVANT L'ECRAN" 7" (LEATHER BAR)
Two French mopo's rocking out with a drum machine, tough guitars and synthesizers. If the Ramones had been French... 300 pressed.
REARRANGED "S/T" 7" (REACT!)
The debut EP on REACT! Records of Moscow's powerhouse Rearranged picks up right where they left off on their previous release, always showcasing the band’s musical and lyrical growth. Drawing influences from classic DC and Orange County-based acts, the follow up of their full-length 'New Forms' delivers five brand new songs of speedy and intense hardcore punk that sometime resemble Minor Threat and Insted, yet managing to attain a character all its own. Recorded and engineered by Mikhail Gabolaev at PravdaPro Studio and mixed by Gustav Brunn at Studio Bengt in Lund, this release proves to be the bands most mature and cohesive work to date. Art duties handled by Ulf Hammarkärr of The Effort fanzine fame. Here you can listen to two new songs, 'Disengage Now' and 'Drilling'. Pre-orders for the new record are already up at the REACT! Records webstore.
PRAISE "2 SONGS" 7" (REACT!)
On their second 7", Praise offers up more melodic hardcore that brings to mind some of the classic late-'80s bands that "progressed," such as Tom Capone-era Bold, "Rebuilding" comp-era Turning Point, or "Trial"-era Verbal Assault. 7" includes digital download.
SPASTIC PANTHERS / TEENAGE RAMPAGE - SPLIT 7" (HANDSOME DAN)
Spastic Panthers, featuring members of Sheglank'd Shoulders, offer four songs of caffeine-fueled, smart-ass, street rock-influenced hardcore, with frequent comparisons to The Freeze being a decent starting point. Teenage Rampage might just be Canada's answer to Tear it Up or Government Warning. Their side contains five songs, all of which absolutely shred, featuring tons of hooks buried under the angriest of intentions. A great introduction to one of North America's most underrated punk scenes.
PLEXI 3 "CALCULATED ROMANCE" 7" (DUSTY MEDICAL)
SPECIAL FAREWELL REISSUE!!! Sadly, PLEXI 3 have broken everyone's heart for real this time, and are calling it quits. ADAM is heading West and RYAN is getting out from behind the drumkit and up front with WENDY, sharing guitar/vocals/bass duties in the new kickass band RAMMA LAMMA (with Joel from The Jet Set). For the last Plexi 3 show at the Dusty Medical Records 5th Anniversary Party, the label made up 100 more of their debut 7-inch from back in 2007, with some on peach, some on clear, and all with a new cover design by ADAM WIDENER.
THE BUZZ "INSANITY" 7" (SING SING)
A very rare and increasingly collectable piece of plastic issued in March '79 on the Redball label in an edition of 1,000 copies, this EP features three under-produced two-chorders, recorded by a Shrewsbury-based outfit formed in early 1978 by Nic Evans (v/gtr), Cob Hillers aka Chris Hill (gtr/v), Gym Slips aka Jim Phillips (b/v) and TwoFourty Volts aka Kevin Higgs (d/v). The killer track is SICK AT HEART with its great Buzzcockian riff and TVPs-like 'ooooh'-chorus. Recommended. A different line-up of The Buzz – Kevin Higgs was replaced by Ian R. Davies, Chris Hill moved to bass and lead vocalist Chris Bellingham was recruited – would enter Foel Studios in July 1981 recording the album ASYLUM, self-released in a pressing of 1,000 copies a couple of months later.
BRAD LONG "LOVE ME AGAIN" 7" (SING SING)
In and out of unrecorded regional combos since the late 1960's, Logansport, IN music store owner Brad Long issued this, his lone single, on his own Music Stand label in the summer of 1977. Featuring a warm, lo-fi basement pop sound with stylistic roots firmly grounded in the mid 60's, both 'Come to Me' and 'Love me Again' evoke a hazy mood reminiscent of early Twilley. Also included with the release were a series of press releases, a section of which listed Long's heroes as Roger McGuinn, Paul Revere and the Raiders and Joe Meek. Greeted with positive reviews in the pages of ( Ballroom) Blitz and NY Rocker, Long later contributed a cover of the Rolling Stone's 'Tell Me' to the first VOXX ' Battle of the Garages' compilation.
THE MOONDOGS "HEADS I WIN" 7" (SING SING)
A very scarce 7" from a Liverpool-based group formed in 1976 by Ian Irvine (gtr/v), Patrick Colohan (gtr/v), Dave Gough (b/v) and Steve Plumber (d). After making their live debut in summer 1977 at the Hope St. Fringe Festival, The Moondogs built up a growing cult following with the incendiary renditions of Chuck Berry and Gene Vincent oldies. In 1978 Plumber was replaced by Tony Dolman and the new line-up record this single, produced by former Deaf School drummer Time Whittaker and issued in October 1979 on Rexette Records, and independent label created by Roger Earle, founder of Eric's Club. Pressed in an edition of 1,000 copies, the platter includes the Powerpoppy TWO'S A CROWD on the flip and the Freakbeat A-side HEADS I WIN, whose riff is similar to the Psyschodelic cult song MY FATHER'S NAME IS DAD by Fire. In 1980 The Moondogs changed moniker to The English, to avoid confusion with the other Moondogs, releasing one single for Albion Records (the A-side of which, HOORAY FOR THE ENGLISH, is a great Powerpop tune) before splitting. Dolman soon joined Lawnmower, a short-lived combo who included future Simply Red frontman Mick Hucknall.
THE ONION DOLLS "THE KIDS" 7" (SING SING)
The Onion Dolls, a four piece punk band from Belgium managed to release this lone 45 before changing their name to Crossfire and fully embracing the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement that was sweeping Europe in the early 1980's. Both tracks on this 45 are unsuppressed killers with shredding guitar lines giving up more than a hint of the NWOBHM influenced sound that was to come. Originally released in 1980 on the TWINKLE label in an edition of 1000 copies with a truly great picture sleeve this highly sought after single is one of Belgiums greatest Punk Rock gems.
LIQUID STONE "HERE COMES THE WEEKEND" 7" (SING SING)
From the small town of Buckingham, 60 miles north of London, Liquid Stone was a four piece band that was formed by Ronni, Mick and Muz in the mid Seventies . Various line-ups centred around the key member, Ronni Sunderland (vocals and rhythm guitar) and Mick Prod (backing vocals and lead guitar) but it reached the pinnicle of its career in May 1980 with Ian (Muz) Murray on Bass (also vocals) and Ian (Tanner) Tansley on drums . After supporting the UK Subs at 'Friars' in Aylesbury, the Subs were so impressed they asked Liquid Stone to accompany them on their 'Brand New Age' tour of the UK and in May 1980 the two bands toured the country playing to audiences from St Austell to Hull and culminating in a gig at the famous Rainbow Theatre in London. The band were well known for their energetic and professional performances. Always a crowd pleaser, Liquid Stone decided to cut their one and only single, 'Here Comes the Weekend' in 1979. All still teenagers at the time the band made their way North to Red Ball Studios in Market Drayton to lay down the tracks but it wasn't until 1981 that the single was formally released. This didn't stop the band topping the offical 'Oi!' charts in 1980 with a live recording of the tracks. Liquid Stone continued to rock clubs and venues around London for the next couple of years and all the members are still playing today.
SPIDERBAGS "HEY DELINQUENTS" 7" (DAGGERMAN)
Their first 7" and a follow-up to their LP on Birdman Records. Spider Bags began as a side-project for Dan McGee, the guitarist of the DC Snipers. Now they're a North Carolina based drunken shamble of a roots band with feet in the trashy garage and punk worlds. The flip side of this was produced by Camero Werewolf, the scum wiz behind Live Fast Die.
PHOTOBOOTH "DA MES TUS BESOS" 7" (DAGGERMAN)
First 7" from one of the best current Bay Area bands. Awesome garage-pop tunes that'll bounce around in your brain for days. Features former members of FM Knives and Mothballs.
HOMEOWNERS "LIGHT AND VISION" 7" (MARGIN MOUTH)
Four spot-on Bay Area musicians unite to produce '90s college rock inspired DIY punk perfection. Wicked guitar licks and immaculate male/female harmonies.
RAINBOW PERSON "TRADE. LABOR. VOCATION." 7" (MARGIN MOUTH)
Elegantly letter-pressed covers and chaotic, harsh music. No melodies, no hooks, no pleases, no thank yous. Unforgiving, destructive hate.
GOD EQUALS GENOCIDE/LIBYANS "SPLIT" 7" (MARGIN MOUTH)
Libyans destroy with fast female-fronted, catchy and spiteful hardcore. God Equals Genocide record in the same studio as Green Day and Stevie Nicks and still sound blown out and sloppy. Three songs from each band. Comes in a glued jacket and printed sleeve.
RAW NERVES "BURNT SKIN" 7" (INIMICAL)
Brand new 7" from this ripping Portland band. These guys did a lot of touring last summer, and if you saw them you know they play burly, no-nonsense hardcore in the vein of bands like Citizens Arrest, and this single picks up right where their old stuff left off. This is just basic, no-frills hardcore, but the riffs are well thought-out and the songs have a lot of meat to them. This is the kind of thing people will still be listening to in 10 years... awesome stuff.
NEVER AGAIN/IRON CLAD "SPLIT" 7" (CTW)
Hailing from south Wales, Ironclad play fast Right Brigade/Frostbite style hardcore and Never Again comes from London and play an even faster pissed off hardcore. With 3 tracks each, this was Never Again farewell recording.
V/A "BLOODSTAINS ACROSS PHILADELPHIA" LP (EAGLEBAUER ENTERPRISES)
Try not to let the name or cover fool you, what we have here is a brand NEW Philadelphia punk and hardcore compilation showcasing 24 bands that the city of Brotherly Love currenlty has to offer. In an age where the compilation has pretty much gone the way of the dinosaur, it's quite impressive to see not only a 24 song LP compilation, but an entirely regional one to boot. Great cover art in the tradition of the classic Bloodstains series, and a nice full size booklet featuring one page per band. If you were curious to see what's been going down in Philly these days, this is a good place to start!
