WEBSTORE UPDATE! New CRAZY SPIRIT, POISON IDEA, COKE BUST, MALE NURSES, and More!

Only one more month left of summer ... while I'm a bit bummed to see it go, I can't say I'm too big of a fan of hot weather! Stoked for fall, but trying to make the most of the summer before it's over. Anyways, I have a pretty killer webstore update this week and I'll get to that in a second, but let me get you up to speed on some GRAVE MISTAKE release news.

First off, the NIGHT BIRDS "Fresh Kills Vol. 1" LP and the SCHOOL JERKS "S/T" LP are both RIGHT around the corner ... the NIGHT BIRDS record is in house and the SCHOOL JERKS vinyl and inserts are here, just waiting on the covers. I'm hoping to have them up for order in a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled. NIGHT BIRDS have been selling copies of "Fresh Kills" on their West Coast tour, and SCHOOL JERKS should have a special version for their record release show on Monday, August 6th ( https://www.facebook.com/events/346185132123839/ ) ... we are hoping have these available to the masses shortly after!

Next in line will be THE SHIRKS 12" (sent this one off last week) and hopefully the 86 MENTALITY "Goin' Nowhere Fast" LP (hope to send it off next week). We will also be co-releasing a repress of the BIG EYES "Demo" 7" with EVIL WEEVIL RECORDS (who originally released this on vinyl). Hope to have those back in circulation by this Fall as well!  Still on the books for 2012 are new LPs from BRAIN F≠ and SECTARIAN VIOLENCE, plus reissues of THE THUMBS "All Lesser Devils" record and STRIKING DISTANCE "March to your Grave" LP ... not much news on those just yet but hopefully soon!

Also, in case you missed it in the last update, I received the remainder of the limited WHITE VINYL of the BIG EYES "Back from the Moon" 7" from the pressing plant, and I still have a few in the webstore so grab that one if you haven't yet!  Hopefully if things go as planned, the next email update you receive from me will be announcing that the two new releases are available for order, but please sit tight for now!  I just put a bunch of awesome new stuff in the webstore to tide you over until then ...

WHAT'S NEW FOR 08.03.2012:
http://www.gravemistakerecords.com/catalog/products_new.php

Not too big of an update this week, but a ton of great stuff still. Received a nice big box from TOXIC STATE Records this week, containing both the brand new CRAZY SPIRIT LP, the US pressing of the CRAZY SPIRT 2009 Demo 12", the HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS LP, and the new DAWN OF HUMANS 7". Also received a nice package from TKO Records containing both the reissue of the TEMPLARS singles collection 12", and the second installment of their POISON IDEA reissues, "The Fatal Erection Years: 1983-1986" LP - essential! Speaking of POISON IDEA, I also grabbed some TAANG repressings of the "Kings of Punk" LP and the "Record Collectors..." 12".  Also scored all of the COWABUNGA Records new releases, including new 7"s from DRY HUMP, SLUGZ, NARCS, the BIRTH DEFORMITIES 10" (featuring members of CULO and Mr. Cowabunga himself), and a new MALE NURSES single which is the first installment of Cowabunga's "Sick Club" singles series!

Was able to score a few copies of the brand new COKE BUST "Live on WMUC" 7" on the UK's CARRY THE WEIGHT Records.  Not sure how many copies made it to the states so far, so grab it while you can because I only have a handful. Also highly recommended is the debut 7" from NYC's MUTANT GENES! Stocked up on the new PRANK Records titles, including not one but two FORWARD 12"s, plus LPs from REALITY CRISIS and NO STATIK.  Also picked up new records from NEON BLUD, GIVE, WHITE WIRES, POST TEENS, BADDAT FOR TRUBBEL, and a handful of NY classics including the QUICKSAND s/t 7", YOUTH OF TODAY "Disengage" 7", and UNDERDOG s/t 7"!

For all of you readers, I stocked up on a ton of new zines including brand new issues of the one and only DISTORT, MRR, COUNTERFEIT GARBAGE, STITCHES IN MY HEAD, RUMPSHAKER, and more!
 
Check the full list with descriptions and restocks below, and as always thanks for reading!!

NEW IN THE WEBSTORE FOR 08.03.2012:

CRAZY SPIRIT "S/T" LP (TOXIC STATE)
"Here is the long awaited debut LP from our beloved Crazy Spirit. Fans will not be disappointed, haters will hate. There are no new tricks here and the band does what it does well better than it has before, pulling out some of the most earsplitting, wonderful riffs it has busted out to date. The album flows as naturally as the trademark gallop carries you from the muddy, audio-sample in its beginning, to moody end. While the album sounds worlds better than previously recorded material it maintains all of the essentials - strictly 8-track recordings, same gremlin, same round bass tone, and so on.Really excellent songs that successfully take the writhing CS sound and serve up stuck-in your brain hooks." - icoulddietomorrow.blogspot.com

CRAZY SPIRIT " DEMO 09" LP (TOXIC STATE)
US pressing of the CRAZY SPIRIT DEMO 12" which was first pressed on Quality Control out of the UK.  A screenprinted mailer and hand stamped inner sleeve conceal the secrets within. .Spawned from the concrete, steel, garbage fluid and tar of New York City natives, Crazy Spirit presents not a demonstration of a series of concise ruminations on life, that seemingly impose order with beginnings and ends, but a constantly mutating chimera, the monotonous screaming of millions of parasitical beings crawling through the many layers of this urban nest they have built to enslave themselves in. These are variations on a theme by urban strigils scraping away the extraneous chatter to identify repetitive patterns and weave them together. Hear yea the booming Crisis marching of a cool death or the sarcastic melody of snakes all compered by a Paul Mahernesque hyena.

HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS "GO HOME" LP (TOXIC STATE)
"While there are a plethora of bands in NYC that make it so very easy to just attach oneself to (through either their approachable personalities or catchy tunes), there are almost as many that make it just as difficult. Then, to take things to a whole new level of distaste, there's Hank Wood & the Hammerheads. No other NYC band commands such vitriol outside of the city (not in NYC, though, since no one in the city seems to have anything resembling ideals if it compromises their cool points) due to some less-than-tasteful antics and attitude, and no other band revels in it more.  As such, it (barely) pains me to admit that this is ranks just behind the new Dawn Of Humans 7" as the best record out of the new batch of Toxic State records and, frankly, is one of the best NYC punk records to come out in a LONG time. After some unimpressive comp tracks, a fun and solid 7", the band has put forth its definitive statement with Go Home. It's weird, it's raucous, it's dirty, it's extremely catchy. The vocals are less cartoony than they were on the 7", spouting off "superior" lyrics of hatred and self-deprecation, all with an appropriate amount of grime. The music backing these vocals is loaded with pop sensibilities. Dual percussion, frenetic bass, and even tasteful and awesome keyboard playing. The element that truly lifts things over the edge, though, is the guitar playing; the guitar lines and riffs on this record are some of the best you will hear all year. I can't level enough praise in Go Home's direction, but I will also say that, at its best, the band resembles Kill From The Heart-era Dicks." - icoulddietomorrow.blogspot.com

DAWN OF HUMANS "BLURST OF THE BIRDFISH" 7" (TOXIC STATE)
"Crazy Spirit may get all of the attention (how could they not with that male model singer??), but everyone in NYC knows that Dawn Of Humans are the trueborn kings of mutant hardcore punk in the city. True freaks in every sense of the word, Dawn Of Humans plays aggressively naive hardcore that sounds like it exists in an alternate universe. Nothing about it make sense. The vocals are the most immediate part about the music, which have become so unhinged and wild that I really don't know how to describe them other than that they are perfect for this. The music itself has grown increasingly complex (sort of?) in a stupid sort of way. I truly hate myself for not being able to do this record justice with my words, as it will definitely appear high up on my top ten records of the year list. This record is just that unbelievable and is beyond any sort of categorization I can provide for it. I am confident that this is my favorite of the four new Toxic State releases.  Their last 7" is one of the best punk records to have come out in 2010 and they may have just topped it with their new 7". Hopefully, this band stays together for at least thirty more years." - icoulddietomorrow.blogspot.com

POISON IDEA "THE FATAL ERECTION YEARS 1983-86" LP (TKO)
Volume 2 of TKO’s Poison Idea “Kings Of Punk” reissues series, collecting the "Pick Your King" EP, "Record Collectors Are Pretentious Assholes" 12” EP compilation tracks and previously unreleased material dating from 1983-1986. Truly, this is material that should require no introduction to fans of American Hardcore Punk. Deluxe TKO reissue treatment with gatefold jacket with OBI-style strip, liner notes and tons of photos, flyers, artwork etc from the band's history. Remastered at Enormous Door Studio for maximum ferocity.

TEMPLARS "DANS LES CATACOMBS DU STUDIO DE L'ACRE: 1993-1999" LP (TKO)
For the Templar's 20th Anniversary, TKO has reissued Dans Les Catacombs Du Studio L'acre; a collection of singles, rarities, and compilation tracks. Originally released in 1996, this LP has been out of print for some time and returns repackaged and remastered.

COKE BUST "LIVE ON WMUC" 7" (CARRY THE WEIGHT)
 If you are not familiar with Coke Bust, they are a 4 piece from Washington DC that play blisteringly fast Straight Edge hardcore taking influence from the likes of HERESY, YOUTH OF TODAY and RIPCHORD. The band have previously released a string of well recieved record through the likes of Grave Mistake, Refuse and Six Weeks Records. 'Live on WMUC' is a 7" containing a raw live set CB played earlier this year and features a Government Issue cover with John Stabb on vocals. This is a one time pressing of 1000 copies.

MUTANT GENES "S/T" 7" (VOMIT COMET)
Motor-damaged Punk/HC from Queens NY featuring ex-members of GUILTY FACES.

GIVE "I AM LOVE" 7" (TRIPLE B)
One of three brand new two-song 7"s from one of the most talked about bands in Washington, DC. This 7" features two brand new songs that take influence from DC legends such as Swiz and Embrace. For fans of Swiz, Embrace and Seaweed.

FORWARD "JUST GO FORWARD TO DEATH" LP (PRANK)
Tokyo, Japan's FORWARD formed in 1996 after the break up of legendary Tokyo hardcore band DEATHSIDE, with lead singer Ishiya and Bassist You joining new members from INSANE YOUTH and KGS to start a new band that would continue "Forward" with new punk sounds. With an edgy, raw hardcore attack, "JUST GO FORWARD TO DEATH" was a culmination of those early years of the band, and was released in 2000 on the H.G. FACT label. One of the band's milestone releases with some of the band's most classic tracks such as "Revolution", What's The Meaning Of Love?", "Set Me Free", as well as the title track, all marked by the band's boisterous vocals, catchy guitar leads and sturdy, pounding rhythm section.  This LP was never released in the U.S., has been out of print on vinyl in Japan for years and is newly re-mastered in time for FORWARD'S early summer tour of the Southwest and West Coast, the third time this legendary band has toured the states and first time since their 2006 tour with TRAGEDY

FORWARD "WHAT'S THE MEANING OF LOVE?" LP (PRANK)
From the forefront of the Japanese hardcore scene of the last 15 years, FORWARD's fierce hardcore was first released on a series of singles, EP's and compilation appearances in the late 1990's and early 2000's. Collecting the entire tracks from their "Feel The Core Of Self" 7", "Act Then Decide" 7", "We Need The Truth" CD-EP, "What Are You Gonna Get" 7" and rare compilation appearances for the first time in a remastered collection from the original sound sources, shows the band defining its sound of tough vocalled, stripped down hardcore, flourished with guitar solos and melody. FORWARD are currently preparing their third album and U.S. tour.

REALITY CRISIS "NOT BOUND BY THE PAST WE LIVE IN THE PRESENT" LP (PRANK)
Explosive hardcore from Nagoya, Japan, REALITY CRISIS take harsh dual vocals that scream, shout, and powerfully punch atop bombastic hardcore, fuel it with titanic pounding build ups and blast everything into raging hardcore songs that strike an intensely pointed balance between straight forward thrashing and a descent into noisy chaos. This new LP features re-recordings of older tracks from the band's various deleted EP's and compilation tracks, completely re-recorded and re-mastered by the band's current line up. Their third domestic US release in addition to an appearance on Prank's US press of the "Nagoya City Hardcore" compilation LP, REALITY CRISIS will return to the US for their second time and first appearance at Austin's Chaos in Tejas Festival this May. Split release with Japan's MCR label.

NO STATIK "EVERYWHERE YOU AREN'T LOOKING" LP (PRANK)
A chaotic swirl blasting at extreme velocity, the San Francisco Bay Area's NO STATIK's debut 10 -song LP is a torrent of rapid fire drum attack, searing guitar leads and harsh vocals. NO STATIK's sound draws from the fast, chaotic hardcore sound of the 1990's as the band's long pedigree maps DIY hardcore scene of the last two decades - members previously played in SCROTUM GRINDER, MOMENTO MORI, IMPETUS INTER, LOOK BACK AND LAUGH, DESTROY!, ARTIMUS PYLE, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?, END OF THE CENTURY PARTY, MURDER SUICIDE-PACT,  JUD JUD, FUCKFACE, CONQUEST FOR DEATH, SCHOLASTIC DETH, but combines diverse elements of all those past, present and future sounds to ignite another level of sonic mayhem. Bleak lyrics frame this outing, as the single track A-Side has the band again experimenting... with ambient, near-horror movie soundtrack-type eerieness. Recorded at Earhammer and mastered at George Horn.

NEON BLUD "DISCOTHEQUE DEATHBED" 12" (VINYL RITES)
5 long songs of droning post punk, very similar to LIVE SKULL and BAUHAUS, by members of AMERICAN SNAKESKIN, CULT RITUAL and MERCHANDISE. Stunning reverbed-out recording, screen printed covers, a one time pressing of 330 copies on black vinyl.

BIRTH DEFORMITIES "SUBURBANIZED" 10" (COWABUNGA)
Debut record from this Chicagoland area band. Do I want to mention that this is my band? Not really because I feel weird about advertising it and mentioning my own band like I am whoring myself, but it is. What we have here is 11 songs of semi classic hardcore punk and not really sticking to a specific style or whatever, I think its more 'punk' than HC but its clearly both. Songs about making bad choices, being a loser, observations of true suburban life and other punk nonsense or greatness depending on how you look at it. Comes in a full color cover, housed in a dust sleeve that is screen printed, both A and B center labels are hand stamped and comes with a full color folded 20 x 20'' poster of the cover art! Was originally to be split into 2 releases but we decided to use them all as one. Its too short for an LP and too long for an EP!

MALE NURSES "SICK CLUB VOL. 1" 7" (COWABUNGA)
2 song 7'' to kick off this amazing 7'' singles series. The Nurses from Allston deliver 2 tracks of awesome HC punk with a heavy lean towards true classic punk that is slightly more mature here then compared to the Deranged debut EP. How can you not get these songs stuck in your head is what I'll wonder? One of my top 5 bands in existence easily, check them out.

DRY HUMP "2ND S/T" 7" (COWABUNGA)
A band I find hard to describe to other people. I see sometimes where someone without a brain calls them 'generic' but I fail to see it. To me its maybe a little simplistic, but its done so well and there's just something on the brink of genius about these depraved and disgusting lyrics. Maybe because it speaks my language? Who knows for sure, but these Lowell, MA guys just play great, sick HC punk is what you need to know. The follow up to the already awesome 'Fucks Your Ears' LP from last year, this 4 song rager is a little more punk and memorable but just as intense if not more so. PJ totally emulates Jerry A in his own way vocally on this record and the music is just bursting with raw power. I know that sounds lame to say, but you can't listen to this and not be blown away I feel. I guess I am also doing a follow up to this pretty soon, no complaints here! Comes in folded and hand glued covers to boot, this is as nice to look at as it is to hear.

SLUGZ "EMPTY SPACE" 7" (COWABUNGA)
Brand new 2nd EP from these Richmond,VA punk rockers! 3 songs that follow up the already awesome 'Suit and Tie' EP which knocked my socks off. Insane vocalist backed by a solid band that combines good rockin' riffs, true American punk and 81' style HC to make a maximum effect. I can't say anymore, one of my fave bands!

NARCS "LONG HOT SUMMER" 7" (COWABUNGA)
After an almost 2 year delay between recordings, the NARCS 2nd EP finally is birthed! Not a party punk band like they seem to be called (although the lyrics are weird and crazy almost in that regard), the guys 1st EP was awesome but also sounded thin and the vocals sound buried and in a distance. This record had 5 different recording attempts and this was the best one easily, 6 songs of pure sleeze punk done very loud & trashy but also with some Black Flag like hard rock and blues riffs for good measure

POST TEENS "THE HEAT" 7" (NO IDEA)
Gainesville-based caustic garage punk super-group Post Teens have announced the details of their upcoming new EP titled "The Heat" out June 5th on No Idea Records. Featuring members of pummeling grind, indie and hard rock acts Averkiou, Asshole Parade, Torche and Shitstorm, Post Teens offer a unique and fast paced, fuzzed-out assault ala The Mummies, Marked Men, Atomic Suplex, The Spits, The Reatards and more.
WEEKEND NACHOS / LACK OF INTEREST - SPLIT 7" (DEEP SIX)
On this split 7", two household names in the powerviolence genre come together for an instant classic. Lack of Interest return with some of their first new material since the 90's, and Weekend Nachos move further in the direction of Worthless with 10 furious tracks of unadulterated hardcore. A must-have for any fan of either band, or anybody with a good ear for heavy fastcore.

COLUMN OF HEAVEN "MISSION FROM GOD" LP (SPHC)
Picking up right where Endless Blockade left off, Column of Heaven released the more-than-impressive Ecstatically Embracing All That We Habitually Suppress demo in 2011, and has returned with their highly anticipated debut 12”. While Endless Blockade hinted and flirted with the mix of noise/experimental music with power violence, this 12” sees those ideas taken to their endpoint, fully incorporating noise, dynamic samples, extra instrumentation, and experimental soundscapes into a metal-tinged power violence framework. Blasts of harsh noise and brutal hardcore mix with quieter, creepier atmospherics to make for an engaging and powerful listen from start to finish. This record fits nicely in line with the current crop of bands taking power violence in exciting new directions (Gas Chamber, Iron Lung, Hatred Surge, Suffering Luna, etc). It’s a great time to be into hardcore.

BADDAT FOR TRUBBEL "DET HAR AR INTE NEW YORK" LP (1234 GO)
Finally a US issue of this modern Swedish punk classic. Now with their ISO 9004 7" added to the B-Side of the LP. 20 songs total now blazing through in just 28 minutes. Now in a full color cover with an insert that translates the swedish lyrics in to english! MRR had this to say about the album "...Imagine pairing a classic Euro Killed By Death sound (sung in Swedish, no less) with a lean toward pub rock and the amphetamine-fueled R&B that dominated the UK in the mid-’70s. While that might spell trouble for anyone unwilling to look past, I dunno, MASSHYSTERI for their Euro-punk fix, this amounts to nothing short of a fucking lightning bolt to the rest of us! It’s refreshing to hear a band mining the sounds of the initial punk era but shrugging off the pose and fashion-aping, opting instead for legit soul and passion. No easy feat, my friends... an absolutely perfect, jaw-dropping record."

WHITE WIRES "WWIII" LP (DIRTNAP)
Here it is, the 3rd album from Ottawa Ontario's White Wires, and it's their best one yet! We're not just saying that, either! Much like other recent Dirtnap releases like Mean Jeans On Mars, and Something Fierce's Don't Be So Cruel, WWWIII finds an older, more established band turning in a slightly more "mature" album. They've turned down the irony and turned up the sincerity. Gone (for the most part) are the stupid (in the best possible sense) built-in-punchline party songs that were all over their first 2 albums. The first record was the "garage" album, the 2nd was the "punk" album, this one is the pop masterpiece. Get ready.In their place is confident, heart-felt pop that's just about the catchiest thing you've ever heard. This is a rock solid album that really hits a stride as it goes along. One thing we've always admired about this band is how each of their albums are very distinct from one another, but are unmistakably, undeniably The White Wires. 

POISON IDEA "KINGS OF PUNK" LP (TAANG)
Poison Idea's second 12" was originally released on Pusmort and keeps up with the fast, sloppy hardcore punk the band is known for. This LP is limited and being sold until the remastered, repackaged version on TKO hits the streets and will be accompanied by bonus tracks.

POISON IDEA "RECORD COLLECTORS ARE PRETENTIOUS ASSHOLES" LP (TAANG)
Following up their "Pick Your King" 7" that is one of the greatest hardcore punk records of all time, Poison Idea came back with "Record Collectors Are Pretentious Assholes" in 1984, continuing to rage the way few others can. This LP is limited and being sold until the remastered, repackaged version on TKO hits the streets as part of the "Fatal Erection Years."

QUICKSAND "S/T" 7" (REVELATION)
Their first release. A groundbreaking progression for Walter (Gorilla Biscuits), Alan and Tom (Beyond), and Sergio

YOUTH OF TODAY "S/T" 7" (REVELATION)
The final studio recording from this influential hardcore band. The lyrics on this release have some of the same philosophical and spiritual influences that dominated Ray's next band, Shelter, which recorded its first album the same year. During the sessions these tracks were done the band also recorded a Partridge Family song, but decided not to release it until 2002 on the Revelation 100 compilation. This record has all the energy the band is known for with a glimpse into the ideas that led Ray to move on to form Shelter.

UNDERDOG "S/T" 7" (BRIDGE 9)
Underdog's debut EP, originally released on New Beginning Records in 1986, available again briefly on B9. 7" includes digital download.

YOUTH OF TODAY "CAN'T CLOSE MY EYES" LP (REVELATION)
The Youth Of Today "Can't Close My Eyes" 7" was originally released by Positive Force Records in 1985, the now-defunct label once run by 7 Seconds frontman Kevin Seconds. It was later reissued as a 12" with an extra song by Caroline/Schism Records in 1988. Now it's available on Revelation Records, completely remastered with new artwork and photos. Features the "Can't Close My Eyes" 7" in its entirety, the extra track from the Caroline/Schism Records 12" and the 5 compilation songs from the V/A "Connecticut Fun" LP originally released on Incas Records in 1985. CD version includes the 2 songs from the V/A "Make It Work" 7" originally released on Run It Records in 1985 which feature the original "Can't Close My Eyes" recording and mix of "Take A Stand" and "We Just Might." Now available again on vinyl.

NERVE AGENTS "S/T" LP (REVELATION)
The Nerve Agents is a sound balanced by the members' different personalities and by a combination of various influences like "Youth of Today" with the "Circle Jerks", "Black Flag" with "Cause For Alarm", and "7 Seconds" with the "Cro-Mags". The band is a mixture of hardcore and punk, turning their music into a sound very reminiscent of the early 80's.

IN MY EYES "NOTHING TO HIDE" LP (REVELATION)
Something that set In My Eyes apart from other hardcore bands was their LP "Nothing To Hide." "Nothing To Hide" had all the energy and aggression that their demo and "The Difference Between" had, but it expanded their sound into something truly unique. You can hear the echoes of bands like Minor Threat and Youth Of Today, but it brought in even more of a sense of melody and structure than their previous record. Now available again on colored vinyl. Vinyl version includes free digital download of this record.

MOUTHPIECE "CAN'T KILL WHAT'S INSIDE" LP (REVELATION)
While many of the early eighties pioneers of hardcore had moved along, the scene went through something of a renaissance with a new crop of energetic kids who had seized the power of the music and molded it into something that was relevant to the style of their times. Fast forward to 2008 and the inspiration for Mouthpiece's formation comes full circle with the release of "Can't Kill What's Inside: The Complete Discography" on Revelation Records.

IGNITE "CALL ON MY BROTHERS" LP (REVELATION)
After nearly two years of being out of press, Revelation Records has re-released Ignite's debut full-length cd, Call On My Brothers. Originally put out by Conversion Records, the amazing remastered 17 song classic is now finally be available, giving new fans the opportunity to hear why Ignite has achieved such a large worldwide following while allowing old fans to hear the album as it was intended to be. Now available again on colored vinyl. Vinyl version includes free digital download of this record.
