New Titles for 1/21/15:
STRANGLED "Body Bag" LP (Crude City Records)
Debut LP from this newish band from Edmonton featuring members of Rhythm of Cruelty and No Problem. Good stuff!!!

LATEX "S/T" 7"
(Sensual World Records)
After a killing demo and a tour through the midwest/Canada, LATEX now has their debut 5 song EP out. Stompy, tough-as-shit, blown out hardcore punk from Philadelphia. Punchy, pogo-esque basslines and chorused out guitars add a US touch to UK82 influenced punk anthems. The singer’s performance could be compared to a (a lot) tougher ELECTRIC DEADS, shouting out the words with more force than the norm. Former and current members of Twerps, Low Charge, State Violence, and Anti- Zen.

GAS RAG "6 Song EP (Euro Press)" 7" (Even Worse Records)
American vinyl pressing of Gas Rag's flawless demo, for those of you that missed out on da tape version. Six tracks of pure, unadulterated Midwestern idiocy that combine equal parts Fix, Anti-Cimex, and leather, melts 'em in a pot and huffs the resulting concoction. Whether you're wall to wallin' or pogoin' from floor to ceiling, you know this is for you.

AJAX "Bleach for Breakfast (Euro Press)" 7"
(Even Worse Records)
One of the most talked about hardcore punk demos 2014 is put to wax by the band themselves. So good, a Swede got the tape cover tattooed on his leg. Can't beat that!

EEL "Endless Fucker" 7" (Even Worse Records)
8 song EP, this is the european 7" version of the endless fucker session,the US 12" on konton crasher and mindcure with a different cover. 8 songs of DrillmessMadnessViolentPunkerScum,which leave you highly uncomfortable,somewhere along the lines of cleveland hc meets UK 82,meets japan.

(Slugsalt Records)
Philly's own Leather finally has an LP. Nine tracks of chorus-blown "loud rock" pressed at 45 rpm. Yelled and wailed vocals and lyrics with brutal imagery. For fans of hardcore punk, grunge, and noise-rock.  2011 saw two EPs: 'Wretch' on Fan Death Records and 'Sterile' on Jade Tree. Before that was 'Anchorite' on Caesar Cuts, and a demo cassette from 2009 that Skeleton Head Records pressed as a 7" in 2012.  Fast forward to March 2014 and EASY pops up on Bandcamp without any gaudy displays. By this point, Leather has called it quits, but they've at least given us pyre on which to burn 'em. As a fledgling label, I'm very happy to give EASY a physical release. I hope you enjoy the 9 tracks as much as I do.

SKEMATA "S/T" LP (Sorry State Records)
Raleigh’s reigning kings of hardcore release their debut vinyl, and it’s undoubtedly one of the most scorching records of the year. With a couple of regional tours and a sold-out demo under their belt, word has slowly been spreading that Skemäta is one of the most untouchable hardcore bands on the planet, and this LP confirms that for the masses. Recorded at Legitimate Business in Greensboro, North Carolina and mastered by Ryan Abbott at Side Two Studios, Skemäta’s debut brilliantly captures the band’s “everything louder than everything else” philosophy. There are legions of bands playing hardcore, d-beat, or whatever these days and one might say that Skemäta aren’t reinventing the wheel, but they’re just better than everyone else. The riffs are both more technical and catchy, the vocals are more brutal, and the rhythm section is more pummeling. Aside from perhaps Impalers, no other hardcore band out there is coming close to touching this.

DAVIDIANS "Night Terrors" 7"
(Sorry State Records)
Second 7” from this new Raleigh punk band and the inaugural release in Sorry State’s North Carolina Singles Series. Davidians were born from the ashes of Double Negative, featuring three former members of that band along with Colin Swanson-White (Formaldehyde Junkies, Voight-Kampff, Safewords) on guitar. While you can definitely hear some of Double Negative’s quirky hardcore punk in Davidians’ sounds, the more straightforward elements have been expunged, leaving a gritty, off-kilter sound that’s equal parts Saccharine Trust and CopShootCop. Dark music for dark times.

(Sorry State Records)
After a couple of singles on the Japanese label Episode Sounds, Sorry State is proud to release the debut LP from Japan’s Louder. I was introduced to Louder by Tsubasa, the guitarist of Sorry State band Rough Kids, and it’s clear why he likes them so much, as Louder bear more than a passing resemblance to Rough Kids’ song-centered, ’77-influenced punk. However, Louder bring a distinctly Japanese take to the table, augmenting the Buzzcocks / Adverts-style melodic punk with some of the wild garage sounds of bands like the Registrators and Teengenerate. 10 tracks, all of them hits.

EVIL CONDUCT "Today's Rebellion" LP (Six Feet Under Records)
Evil Conduct play 100%, working class oi straight outta Holland with 30 years of experience under their belts.

STEPDAD SS "Mad About It" LP (Vile Audio Label)
Following the 2013 demo, STEPDAD SS kicks out a brand new 12 song debut LP. Building on a foundation previously laid by bands like Poison Idea, Totalitar, and Necros; SDSS manages to meld those, along with a few other off the wall influences into their own sound and not come across as another rehashed 80's hardcore tribute. The first press of 250 copies comes housed in heavy, screen printed jackets with cover art from Colin Clark.

SECRET TOMBS "Secret Tunes" LP (Wigtunes Records)
"I've been very excited about this release for a long time. Secret Tombs' debut The True Story Of... was one of the best rock releases I had heard in years and they've rerecorded it and their follow-up, Homemade Braces, to perfection. Ever imagined what AC/DC would sound like if Dead Moon wrote and recorded it? Probably not, but Secret Tombs is it and this record is phenomenal. Some of the best riffs I've heard in a LONG time. Essential." - Katorga Works

REAL KIDS "Shake … Outta Control" LP (Ugly Pop Records)
It's been 38 years since Boston's REAL KIDS debuted with the finest rock'n'roll record ever committed to tape, and now they're back with a long-awaited new full-length on legendary hometown label Ace Of Hearts and Canada's Ugly Pop. Of course, long time fans can always be excused some apprehension when a band of this vintage presents new material so deep into their career, but there's no cause to fret here. “Shake...Outta Control” is a fantastic return to form, a strong set of powerful, memorable and engaging songs that do absolute justice to this band's legacy. While some bands lose track of their own soul in forced attempts at progression, and others risk diminishing returns by simply treading the water of their earlier work, 2014 finds the Real Kids negotiating this path beautifully. Boasting both the raw energy and tough hooks of 1977 and the matured chops and expanded palette of frontman John Felice's “Nothing Pretty” LP, the dozen songs on this disc settle easily among the band's best work. Producer Rick Harte guides with an expert hand, integrating Hammond organ and pedal steel seamlessly into a full yet suitably unpolished whole, and the songs run the gamut from quieter but intense ballads like a definitive new “Common At Noon” and a sublime take on Jonathan Richman's “Fly Into The Mystery” to fast-paced rockers like “All Night Boppin'” (powered along by highly caffeinated barroom piano) and of course the instant classic title track, a high-energy gem anchored by the sort of classic Boston punk rock'n'roll riff that made this band's name. Culminating in an incendiary “Who Needs You?”, this is a genuine Real Kids record that will thrill new fans and old alike. Superbly mastered at New York's renowned Sterling Sound, the “Shake...Outta Control” LP was cut 100% analog direct from tape and pressed at RIP-V on 180G vinyl for an incredible high-quality deluxe package.

SHAVED WOMEN "Just Death" LP (Makoul Records)
Shaved Women have finally decided to give the public what they've been frothing at the mouth for, a new full length record. Giving maladjusted hope to aspiring psychopaths everywhere, this fat slab is full of tasty jams. The distorted, buzz saw riffs make you want to carry around a knife, not a switchblade. The John Bonham meets the Incredible Hulk drums make you want you start a fight with a wall until you have less bones. The vocals drill into your head and convince you that they only way out is to slam through the ground tearing all of your friends designer blouses while failing through the wormhole. Simply put, this sounds like the tension of blood boiling after a car accident...if it was catchy.
AUSMUTEANTS "Order of Operation" LP (Goner Records)
Jake Robertson and Billy Gardner started Ausmuteants in late 2011 in Geelong, Australia, after having played since teenagers in trad garage bands (The Frowning Clouds and The Living Eyes, respectively). Per the norm for good-looking rebels who play by their own rules, they cracked the shits, broke loose with just a synth and drums and, in early 2012, knocked out the Split Personalities tape. The addition of Melbourne’s loose-unit Marc Dean on bass followed, and soon after, ex-Canberran hardcore non-guitarist Shaun Connor on guitar. Their second album Amusements (note: not self-titled) comes from this fledgling time as a full band, with a heavy dose of the duo’s songs. Since the runaway international success of that record and playing every second weekend in Melbourne, they’re rocked-out full-tilt with all four members writing and singing new songs—23 of which were recorded live with vocal overdubs in the basement of an old ice cream factory by Mikey Young, then mixed and mastered in his idyllic coastal abode. Again the band and their Australian label Aarght! Records strained the friendship with song picks, agreeing on thirteen to make up Order of Operation. This record is better than Amusements any way you cut it: songs, lyrics, delivery and sound. It opens with Connor’s forehead- and thigh-slapping musical and lyrical debut, “Freedom of Information.” From there, songs range from balls-to-the-wall punkers (“Felix Tried to Kill Himself”; “Boiling Point”), well-considered workouts (“Family Time”; “Tunnel Vision”) and unguarded tenderness (“Wrong”; “Looney Bin”). Even people who couldn’t stand their earlier juvenile bullshit are now onboard. The toilet humor has been ditched, the band has gotten nasty and written songs about other people’s problems, terrible bands, fighting crime and trading sex for porn. Young was heard to say after one particular vocal take: “You deserve to be bashed for that.” The song’s on the record; you guess which one. Order of Operation is now their defining moment. If you don’t like this record, you pretty much won’t ever like Ausmuteants.
AUSMUTEANTS "S/T" LP (Goner Records)
Ausmuteants are four twenty-nothings from Geelong, Victoria, raised on a diet of seminal avant punk like Chrome and the Screamers. Letʼs not mention Devo—as a two-piece, Jake Robertson (synth, guitar) and Billy Gardener (drums) flushed that obsession with the release of their Split Personalities album in 2012. They’ve since added Marc Dean and Shaun Connor on bass and guitar, respectively, and worked ’60s songwriting ideas, disco rhythms and a subtler brand of theft into finely crafted pop songs, recording 22 in early 2013. Aarght! Records picked the best twelve for Amusements, reissued on vinyl domestically by Goner. Ausmuteants are liked by Vice and Dangerfield despite (or because of) their synthesizers, their swearing and their youthful good looks. For what it’s worth, Ausmuteants do not like Vice or Dangerfield.

CANCERS "Fatten the Leeches" LP
(Dead Broke Records)
Athens, GA. based alternative love child born to Ella Kaspar and Lenny Miller by way of Vancouver, Canada & NYC. Ex-members of UNFUN & DEAD DOG. Debut album, "Fatten The Leeches" produced & recorded by Seattle's, Jack Endino (Nirvana- “Bleach”, Hole, Babes in Toyland, Soundgarden) Comes w/ download.

BEACH SLANG "Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?" 7" (Dead Broke Records)
Their debut EP, Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?, is not only the perfect record to kick off sixty-degree weather, it’s the perfect record to kick off sixty-degree weather now, after six months of freezing temperatures on the East Coast. It’s also got the kind of genuine nostalgia that can only be achieved by having a combined fifty or so years spent in punk rock among three members, and when guitarist James Snyder growls, “This guitar wants to die” in raggedy, torn, pissed off vocals that are equal parts Robby Takac and Paul Westerberg, it’s all I can do to stop myself from getting these lyrics plastered all over my body. And whereas Snyder’s band Weston defined being an awkward teenager in the 90s, Beach Slang catches up with that same goofy kid at forty, stoked as ever on punk rock and loud, brash guitars.

(Dead Broke Records)
Long overdue Split 7" between these two East Coast bands. NONA hails from Pennsylvania and jam out here with two killer tracks of pop-punk soaked indie rock. (Ex- Spraynard). Crow Bait is from Long Island & cranks out two alternative-rock melodic punk songs. (Members of: Iron Chic, Sister Kisser & more). Digital download includes bonus acoustic song from each.

PRINCE "S/T (II)" 7" (Dead Broke Records)
Snotty and melodic-as-fuck pop-punk from the blazing streets of Austin, TX! Members of Huff Stuff Magazine, Dude Jams!, Capitalist Kids, Wild America & more rage on with their upbeat & unique blend of lo-fi garage slop-pop-punk. Get on it cus this is totally ruling it.

BEAR TRADE "Blood and Sand" LP (Dead Broke Records)
Debut full-length album from England's melodic punk rock sleuth brethren. (Ex- Blocko, Southport, Former Cell Mates) Comes with digital download.

(Dead Broke Records)
Seattle, Washington's kings of crusty pop-punk are back with their first official full-length album. Last year saw the vinyl release of the bands' debut batch of songs titled, "Fly With The Unkindness". Well, Murmurs are back and are here to kick the goddamn door in with, "Bound". Drawing from earlier pop-punk influences (ranging from the East Bay to the Northwest), the band pushes further on with their dark, urgent & poppy melodic tones. All while churning it up with a chunk of fuzzed-out grunge rock, this time around. If you weren't a believer before, then you will be now. An outstanding effort & one of our favorite records of the year, straight up. (Members of: Snuggle, Pipsqueak, No Hi-Fives To Bullshit, Transient & more.)

SONIC AVENUES "S/T (Deluxe Edition Reissue) LP
(Dead Broke Records)
Deluxe Edition Reissue of Montreal, Canada's Sonic Avenues' debut full-length album! Reissued & Remastered with 2 additional bonus tracks. Out of print since 2010. Band now on Dirtnap Records. Members of The Steve Adamyk Band & more.

(Goner Records)
Hey bro, check it out: In Memphis in early 2011, five people joined forces to start a punk rock band. They each came from different scenes—hardcore, psychedelic, and various flavors of indie pop. Things gelled. I mean, really came together, man! Following the release of two killer singles under the name Sex Cult, they were faced with a lawsuit from a similarly named and very aggressive techno label in New York City. So Sex Cult became Ex-Cult.  Playing a series of house parties and gigs in dive bars, Ex-Cult honed their sound—a punk rock sweet spot that incorporates angular post-punk, flying saucer fuzz guitar, snotty vocals and bash-your-head-in energy. A real stone groove! Killer linear punk à la Wire, Urinals, Australia’s X or something, man!  A show at SXSW caught the attention of indie wonderkind Ty Segall, and the two began making plans to record in San Francisco. This is the end result—a debut album that takes the living energy of their show and crams it onto the grooves of an LP. Wild, man! Wild!

WIDOWS WATCH "This Message Repeats" LP (Toxic Pop Records)
Maryland is full of "best kept secret" bands. You know, the kind that quietly write music in their basements and garages, record with their friends, play shows once in a while, and maybe even get to open for their favorite bands from time to time, yet due to jobs, families, and other obligations they are rarely, if ever, able to hit the road and take their music to people that live even just a few hours down the highway. Widows Watch are one of those bands. If you're from the Baltimore area, you may fondly remember bands like Can't Say and Greasegun and their Leatherface/All/Big Drill Car/Doughboys/Sugar worship. Well, Widows Watch is made up of most of those same people (and rounded out with members of Chernobyl Kids and the Gamma Rays) and they still love the same bands. These are songs for people who still believe in the power of music to connect those of us that don't sit quietly while those in charge strip away everything that we hold dear. Earnest songs about the beauty in giving a shit and the ugliness in keeping your mouth shut. Honest songs about the struggles of living with anxiety and depression, and eager songs about sticking it out with your friends and your loved ones by your side. This is their debut LP and if you're lucky it will be the first of many. If you're even luckier you may get a chance to see them play your town. Fingers crossed.

MDC "Millions of Dead Cops (Millenium Edition)" LP (Beer City Records)
LP -‘Millions of Dead Cops’ is the first iconic , full length; classic must have record by M.D.C. This was first released in 1981 and quickly became an overnight sensation. Not only did M.D.C. deliver a record full of fast intense music , but this record would influence 1000’s of hardcore/punk and bands of political nature to this day. The corruption of cops! Greed of corporations! Racism! The fact that not all people were the same , but so what that’s OK! Are all addressed in this groundbreaking LP. Many of these issues were quit taboo at the time and had not been addressed to this degree in punk before. Round it all off with this being fully restored and re mastered with the original mix. You have a definite must have album!

FANG "Landshark" LP (Boner Records)
The classic 1983 hardcore scuzz rock debut from Berkeley, CA’s Fang, Landshark is a unique mix of erratic thrashers and slow Sabbath-oid noise riffs. Its best-known tune is without a doubt the rumbling and stumbling opening track “The Money Will Roll Right In,” which has been covered by Nirvana, Metallica, Mudhoney, The Butthole Surfers and god knows who else. The record also includes cheerful odes to the disabled (“Destroy the Handicapped”), the follicle-y challenged (“Skinheads Smoke Dope”), and assorted werewolves, delinquents and drug users. Fang continues to unload their brand of sludge-punk on audiences to this day, with recent tours taking them around the US, Europe and Brazil. This reissue is remastered and back in print on vinyl for the first time in 20 years, with additional vintage artwork inside. The digital download included with the disc also features their entire Where the Wild Things Are release, plus more.

ADICTS, THE "Sound of Music" LP (Taang Records)
This is the 1982 classic LP from UK punks The Adicts, who deliver thirteen tracks of tough, rocking punk, delivered with catchy hooks and sing-along choruses.

SLAUGHTER AND THE DOGS "Do It Dog Style" LP (Taang Records)
Do It Dog Style is the 1978 debut LP from classic UK punk band Slaughter And The Dogs who formed all the way back in 1976. After opening for the Sex Pistols that same year, the band released two classic singles and eventually this 12" that mixed early punk and glam delivered with the same fire and tongue-in-cheek attitude as other timeless UK acts.

SIN 34 "Do You Feel Safe" LP
(Sinister Torch Records)
NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! Formed in the first wave haze of LA punk rock, SIN 34 epitomizes the Southern California Hardcore scene at the time. Fast, defiant thrash, one part suburban teenage rebellion, one part crass satire, all held together by a thread of reckless adventuring. One of the rare hardcore bands fronted by a female singer, SIN 34 bounced it’s way briefly but not quietly through the SoCal scene, dodging flying bodies, and antagonistic, aggressive LA police as they went. Originally released in 1983, Do You Feel Safe? (SIN 34’s only full length LP), captured the band in their short-lived prime. 30-plus years out of print until now, JULIE, DAVE, PHIL and MIKE encapsulate the youthful spirit of a vital and influential music movement. Includes liner notes by band member DAVE MARKEY (We Got Power zine). Remastered by BOB WESTON. LP pressed on 180-gram 45 rpm vinyl with download.    “Every time I heard Julie Lansfield’s voice I am transported back to my creative/destructive alienated angry punk feminist teenage self and I experience sheer glee, mischief and rage all at the same time!”—Toby Vail, Bikini Kill

GUN CLUB, THE "Death Party" LP
(Sympathy for the Record Industry)
Part of a reissue campaign to reintroduce this criminally overlooked, seminal Los Angeles punk band. Released in 1983, these are the only recordings of this version of the band following a line up shakeup. In addition to the tracks from Death Party are 7 songs from a live radio broadcast from Geneva, Switzerland in March, 1983.

GUN CLUB, THE "Las Vegas Story" LP (Sympathy for the Record Industry)
Part of a reissue campaign to reintroduce this criminally overlooked, seminal Los Angeles punk band. Although Pierce would reform and reignite the Gun Club up until his death, this release from 1984 marked the end of the original era. Including peculiar choices for covers by Pharoah Sanders and Gershwin, Las Vegas Story begins with a Bo Diddley drum beat and continues through a pastiche of styles and storylines that encapsulate the warped ideals of middle America.

(Sympathy for the Record Industry)
The sophomore record by the Gun Club bore the curse of having to follow a monolith of their own making. Fire of Love sold extremely well for an independent; it was a favorite of virtually every critic who heard it in 1981. Miami showcased a different lineup as well. Ward Dotson replaced Congo Powers (temporarily, at least) on guitar, and there were a ton of guest performances, including Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. Stein produced the album. Off the bat the disc suffers from a thin mix. Going for a rougher sound, Stein left the instruments at one level and boosted Pierce's vocal. There is plenty of guitar here, screaming and moping like a drunken orphan from the Texas flatlands, but next to its predecessor it sounds drier and reedier. Ultimately it hardly matters. Going for a higher, more desolate sound, frontman and slide player Jeffrey Lee Pierce and his band were literally on fire. The songs here, from "Carry Home," "Like Calling Up Thunder," "Devil in the Woods," "Watermelon Man," "Bad Indian," and "Texas Serenade," among others, centered themselves on a mutant form of country music that met the post-punk ethos in the desert, fought and bloodied each other, and decided to stay together. This is hardcore snake-charming music (as in water moccasins not cobras), evil, smoky, brash, and libidinally uttered. Their spooky version of an already creepy tune by Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Run Through the Jungle" runs the gamut from sexual nightmare to voodoo ritual gone awry. Finally, Pierce and company pull out all the roots and reveal them for what they are: "John Hardy," is a squalling punk-blues, with the heart of the country in cardiac arrest. Dotson proved to be a fine replacement for Congo Powers, in that his style was pure Telecaster country (à la James Burton) revved by the Rolling Stones and Johnny Thunders. Miami was given a rough go when it was issued for its production. But in the bird's-eye view of history its songs stack up, track for track, with Fire of Love and continue to echo well into this long good night.

(Rat King Records)
Two songs by St. Louis’ Cal and the Calories. This cassette features a new original song, Plop, as well as cover of BobbyDarin’s 1950s smash hit “Splish Splash.” Represses are limited to a run of 50 yellow tapes with yellow j-cards. Art by Brian Galecki.

NECTAR "S/T" Tape (Rat King Records)
Four song demo from Champaign based Kamila Glowacki. Glowacki really brands herself as a way of sweet but deceptive twee music in the vein of Tiger Trap and Cub.  This demo features her deep loathing as well as the blissfully sweet taste of love. Repress limited to 30 with hand cut o-cards.

TEEN FREAK "S/T" Tape (Rat King Records)
Debut Demo from Springfield IL’s Teen Freak. This foul demo shows what it is to truly be different from everyone else that you are surrounded by. Lyrics written by a troubled teen, music flowing out of gutters like day-old slime. Repress is limited to 35 cassettes with double o-cards (how freaky).

(Dead Broke Records)
Cassette tape version of Canadian Rifle's amazing new album. "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."
