On the early 2017, the band hit the studio to record 13 new songs for their first full length album. Within this new recording, you will be able to spot an intense chance of their style which progressed from raw powerviolence with ripping in grind style vocals to more of early US hardcore sound blended with nowadays US sound with real great match delay on vocals. The songs are still short and aggressive but more restrained with 2-3 exceptions. Limited to 300 copies.
LITIGE "fuite en avant" (Destructure) - 11€
LITIGE is a great punk rock band based in Lyon, these 3 girls and this guy bring something very fresh and inspiring, sung half in French, half in English. The demo was already really good, shows we've seen were awesome and we could not miss this and offered to help them release that 8 songs 12".

set out to smash complacency and conformism with their blend of Clevo mosh and keffiyeh wearing left wing politics. Gothenburg Straight Edge back on the map!
LUMPY AND THE DUMPERS "those pickled fuckers" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Since emerging five years ago Lumpy and the Dumpers have gone from being aberrant oddballs to key figures in a whole scene of weirdo punk. Through Lumpy Records and its influence a grubby morrass of freak punk has bubbled to the surface in their slimy wake. Those Pickled Fuckers is the sound of a band distinguishing themselves from a sound they inspired, not falling into the easiness of a sound, finding new ways to express their grubby vision while retaining the essential muck that made people take notice in the first place.
Over seven tracks of gritty discomfort punk, bulging with bodyhorror blues and puerile manic imprecations, Lumpy and the Dumpers revel and writhe in the effluvia of life and the rude pangs and oozings of flesh.
Revivifying the dead metaphor of the earworm, these songs burrow snugly into your brain, distorted sing-song playground melodies, like hell dimension children's show theme songs, exploding with weird turns and twists, from the blaring horns of Someone's In The House's paranoiac stomp, to the wild malfunctioning chiptune screams cutting through Attention and the... more.
MAN LIFTING BANNER "the revolution continues" (Crucial Response) DOUBLE LP - 18€
While so many on the left cried defeat and dropped their so-called 'old-fashioned' principles, ManLiftingBanner felt an urge to go against the grain. Included in this record you will find the entire "Myth Of Freedom" 7" (1991), "Ten Inches That Shook The World" 10"(1992), one compilation track and eight newly recorded songs from 2011. The new songs are done in the traditional hardcore punk style only ManLiftingBanner can pull off. Expect nothing less.29 songs for a new generation, but also for those who where with the band back in the days and for those who kept the revolutionary fire inside and outside of the hardcore punk community strong and burning. Last but not least, after almost 20 years all the ManLiftingBanner songs are finally available on vinyl again. Moreover, the record comes with a huge, fully coloured 12-page booklet with photos, quotes, all the lyrics and a big-sized A2 poster for all your propaganda needs.
MASAKARI "the prophet feeds" (Scarecrow/Alerta Antifascista/Halo OF Flies) - 12€
Repressed! Debut album from Midwest bashers Masakari. This band is amazing and this first full-legnth of theirs is relentless, unhinged, chaotic crust! Somewhat in the vein of His Hero is Gone, Tragedy and From Ashes Rise, but with a very distinct and brutal edge, Masakari fuses their apocalyptic crust with the raging power of Discharge/Disfear D-beat and the hard-edged Japanese punk stylings of G.I.S.M., with a smattering of blast-beat driven grindcore to drive it all home.
After the huge underground buzz of their debut 7", the band was ready to take their cataclysmic protest punk to a whole different level and "The Prophet Feeds" is that next step. It is an epic record that takes your breath away with its very scope; not an easy undertaking for an album that is only 10 songs and less than 30 minutes long! Engineered by Bill Korecky (Incantation, Keelhaul, Integrity) and recorded at Mars Studio in Cleveland. Co-release with Alerta Antifascista from Germany and Halo Of Flies from US.
MISERY "from the seeds that we have sown" (Inimical) - 13€
This latest release finds Misery looking not only backwards but forwards as they celebrate 25 years together without a lineup change nor a break. The two lead off tracks show that Misery will always be progressing and growing, The Beginning featuring female vocals and acoustic guitar amidst the massive crushing heaviness, where Armageddon shows that no one has perfected apocalyptic crust/ stenchcore like Misery has. The middle of this release finds them reaching back to the first demo, re-recordings of the bleak New Year’s and the classic Midnight. The latter features the return of Al Long who left Misery to join Nausea shortly after the demo. The final two songs pay homage to their roots in the van by covering Sacrilege’s Lifeline and Chrome’s epic 3rd From the Sun, once again featuring Al Long, both adding their own ingredients that began to shape Misery in 1988. Any band would be lucky to celebrate 25 years with a release this strong.
THE MOVEMENT "fools like you" (Tollshock) - 14€
The Movement from Copenhagen is back and ready to move again!

NADZóR "your tolerance is shit if you don't try to understand us!!!" (Pasazer) - 11€
Noisy thrashcore coming straight from the small town of Oświęcim, Poland. This is fast, lo-fi noisy thrash with some slower metal breaks probably inspired by Metallica or Slayer, it's not really crossover though, could be compared to other Polish bands as The Corpse or Moskwa who were playing in the same approach at that time. This demo had been released first by the German label T.N.T in the late eighties, then reissued ten years later in Poland by Trujaca Fala, then reissued on vinyl last year with a proper and cleaner studio recording. Archive contains a huge booklet with lyrics, band pictures and history.
NECROPHILIA "mentalna pustinja" (NE!) - 16€
Few had expected that from 2 to 3 musical experiments from 1980 and ‘81. ("Glass Jugoslavije", "Civili" and "Bojeve Glave") would lead to the formation of Necrophilia! The group was formed in 1982. The line-up was: Pi Pi bass, Miša – drums, Z. Misterius guitar + vocal and backing vocal was Deki (who was later replaced by Gvido and in the last phase of Risto Topalovski). It was literally one of the first hardcore punk bands, at a time when HC punk in the world was at the height of the musical, ideological, status-like or how you want to interpret it.
"Our style is based on the recipe quickly - noisy and engaged with the ultra-fast distorted guitars and lyrics based on the anti-war and social issues" - in an interview explains Misterius. If the band wrote in the circles of independent media (fanzines), but the attention was sharply after the band appeared on V/A "Buka in Urlik," a cassette compilation with ''Herpes Distress'' and ''Solunski front'' (No profit Tapes # 001).
Rehearsals were a problem and the band managed what they could and everything was possible: rooms, garages, makeshift studios, concert stage, all options were in play as unplug rehearsal in the train to Ljubljana. Appearances were frequent: in the hall "Pionir", the brewery "Skadarlija" (with "Solunski front" and ''Pogrebni zavod"), the XIII BG's gymnasium (with "Van kontrole" from Novi Sad , -pre 2 Minute mrznje, "Posle Procesa" and "Solunski front") in Ljubljana at hardcore party at Disco FV-up (with "Solunski front"), where they documented in their first video and interview with Igor Vidmar from "Radio Student". About this group was often in fanzines from all over Yugoslavia ("Katastrof," from Belgrad, "Povratak otpisanih" from Ljubljana, "Izazov" from Istria, "Zasto bas mi" from Subotica ...). In the middle of 1984 some of the band members went to the obligatory military service, and the group disbanded.
LTD 360 copies (115 black, 85 clear vinyl and 160 picture disc) in gate-fold sleeve, printed innersleeve and exclusive 24-page booklet "Choose the struggle or die in apathy". Only 100 copies of these included CD. All songs are remastered!
THE NEWTOWN NEUROTICS "pissed as a newt" (No Plan) -
Pissed As A Newt is an album worth of EARLY (´78-´80) live recordings that were only released as a cassette in 1982 on Steve´s NO WONDER records. Now it´s available on vinyl for the first time ever! Comes with a double sided insert with lyrics and unpublished photos of the band! All this material was written and performed long before the first album. Thought provoking Punk Rock with melody and punch that Newtown Neurotics have always been known for.
NEW YORK WANNABES st (P.Trash) - 7€
2 piece Garage band from Germany that brings to mind THE CRAMPS, 68 COMEBACK, OBLIVIANS and THE GORIES. This is just good old 60’s blues Garage Punk trash with songs about good and evil and played with blood, sweat and tears! There’s a very genuiness to their song writing and it comes off very natural and pure.
NIHILIST "drowned - the demos" (Euro Fan) - 14€
Death metal band from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1987. Nihilist was one of the first bands to emerge from the Stockholm death metal scene. The group recorded three demo tapes before disbanding in 1989 due to disagreements within the band (namely between Johnny Hedlund and the rest of the group). After the split Nicke Andersson however quickly reformed the group as Entombed, but without Hedlund, who then went to form his own band Unleashed.
Amazing demos compilation by Nihilsit, one of the most important and influent Swedish Death Metal bands EVER! The family tree of this band is stunning, having spawned acts like Entombed and Unleashed and their trademark sound became the blueprint of a whole scene. This compilation features their three demos ("Prematury Autopsy" 1988, "Only shreds remain" 1989 and "Drowned" 1989) and their "Radiation sickness" EP, the first Entombed demo ("But life goes on" 1989) and some Entombed live tracks as a bonus. This is absolutely,MANDATORY, a history lesson for every Death Metal fan out there!
THE NOW-DENIAL "mundane lullaby" (Sbotage) - 10€
If you take a look at german hardcore music, you're bound to notice THE NOW-DENIAL. After 7 years of chaos, emotion, blood, sweat and black humuor, THE NOW-DENIAL has put out their 3rd full-length album. 'Mundane lullaby' brings 12 brand new harsh, pissed off hardcore songs. Soundwise the production of this record is much better than on their previous releases. THE NOW-DENIAL's brutality rolls on, crushing all in its path! Brace yourself for heavy doses of hardcore, bitter demented vocals, and over the top guitar leads - combined with a really nice artwork and gatefold-cover, this record is a killer and a must have!
OHYDA - st (La Vida En Us Mus) - 13€
Debut release from Lublin’s OHYDA. Distorted dark hardcore which channels the spirit of the classic Polish hardcore punk of DEZERTER or TRAGIEDIA (who they cover on the B side), mixes it with modern Barcelona bands ala DESTINO FINAL and incorporates quasi industrial beats a la CRESS with a hint of psychedelia creating a hybrid that is a monster on its own. Seven tracks in nearly 16 filled minutes which keeps us hoping for more soon.
The record comes in a 350 gsm reverse board sleeve designed by Szymon Siech with a 12 page A6 lyric booklet and a download code.
OI POLLOI "saorsa" (Skuld) - 12€
This is the sixth studio album of the long going scottish anarchist punk band "OI POLLOI" (Slang for "The Common People")
15 new songs recorded in 2014 with an retrospective of the many musically influences of previous OI POLLOI records. Here you find the anarcho charged sing-a-long Oi!Punk in exchange with D-Beat-Crust and of course classic UK Anarcho Punk.
"Saorsa" means "Freedom" in scottish gaelic and "Freedom" or "Liberty" is the lyrical main subject of this album. Lyrics are mostly sung in English with little excursions into Gaelic, Spanish as well as Yiddish. With all the heavy political content, OI POLLOI never excluded humor in what they do and this is what makes them so sympathic in my eyes.
Responsible for the beautiful artwork was Sonia L. who already contributed to previous OI POLLOI records such as "Fuaim Catha".
OBLITERATIONS “poison everything” (Southern Lord) - 14€
Comprised of current and ex-members of Black Mountain, Saviours and Night Horse, OBLITERATIONS delivers a blazing blend of Poison Idea, Discharge, and Black Flag, set to a live show that willfully incites and encourages one’s aggressive tendencies to shine. Comes in Stoughton gatefold jacket. A day after returning from their Southwest US Tour in March, the band recorded with producer Chris Owens (Lords, Coliseum, Young Widows) at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in only three days. Mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Black Breath) at God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, the end result of Poison Everything is a thirteen-song, twenty-nine-minute record full of raw brutality, darkness and aggression, the album weaving its way through the annals of punk and hardcore, while still sounding fresh and vital.
The lead track “Mind Aint Right” is a two-minute blast harkening back to early ‘80s Japanese hardcore akin to Gauze, Lip Cream and GISM, whereas the scorcher, “Scapegoat,” walks a razor’s edge between d-beat Discharge influence and Swiss pioneers Celtic Frost, and “Shame,” which opens with a riff that lodges itself nicely between Spacemen 3 and The MC5.
The band has always been very open to expressing their influences and inspiration by a bevy of diverse muses including Alan Watts, Laughing Hyenas, Blue Oyster Cult, The Stooges, Alice Cooper, Paul Bowles and Suicide. The blueprint isn’t the point here, it’s the results. The sound is abrasive and raw, driving and aggressive, and fully infectious. OBLITERATIONS’ mission is simple a one; write, record, tour, and that’s just what they do.
OUTREAU - st (Une vie pour rien Vinyles) - 12€
After 2 EPs, the first album from this Parisian band. A mix of oi! and hardcore, hatefull vocals, rough sound and dark lyrics. Somewhere between Iron Cross or Negative Approach.

PEGGIO PUNX "ci stanno uccidendo..." (Vomitopunkrock) - LP + 7" - 16€
Peggio Punx were one of those bands who like few others define the sound of Italy. Mosquito guitars, shrieking vocals and hectic drumming combined with a very unique overall layer of urgency and immediacy.
This is the third release by Peggio Punx, originally released in 1985, here coming together with the first 7". So, here we have a 12" LP, a 7" EP and a nice insert. Furious HC from Italy.
PELIGRO! - st (Discos Enfermos) - 10€
This is a new band from members of HORROR, LOS DOLARES, ETACARINAE, PRIMATES, but brings a fresh sound not heard from any of their previous bands. The music is a heavy dose of BLACK SABBATH mixed with MOTORHEAD, and ANNIHILATION TIME comes to mind as well, but the real treat is that they keep it hardcore with the drive that many heavier bands can't keep up. I really liked these guys live and this record is testament to their skills. I first heard this 5% faster than the LP was recorded at, and I must say I really liked that speed too.
PERMISSION "contagious life" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 13€
Storming debut by London's Permission. An LP full of cut corners, but not the kind that diminish impact or relinquish effort to what could of been, bur more the kind of oblique angles and low sharp ceilings that cause the head that does not bang to bang, lesion, swell, and never clot. Forged in the tattered die-cut of the contemporary edges of hardcore but thoroughly punched clear out of the factory, thanks to the now legendary edge of guitar player Ralph Simmond’s stereo detuning, alongside tight turns and sharp time changes. Big moves pin this LP far beyond expectation and straight onto a great punk hit. Move or be shoved. Absorb or be locked out. Somewhere between a hi-fi Rudimentary Peni and if Saccharine Trust was a rugby team.
Contagious Life comes housed in a heavy weight reverse board sleeve designed by Ralph Simmonds and has a lyric insert and download code.
PERSPEX FLESH 'ordered image" (Static Shock) - 13€
Just under a year from the release of their debut LP, PERSPEX FLESH return with a brand new 6 track 12" EP. Undoubtedly their strongest work yet, this takes all of the influences of the previous records, the feeling of claustrophobia, the tasteful nods to bands such as RUDIMENTARY PENI, SPIKE IN VAIN and COLD SWEAT, as well as an occasional post punk feel, and merges it into something ugly and unique. UK Hardcore has been possibly in it's best state for the best part of two decades in recent memory, and this is another record to help enforce that claim. Featuring members of THE FLEX, DiE and BROKEN ARM.
PHOBIA "remnants of filth" (Deep Six) - 15€
Legendary grind merchants PHOBIA are set to scathe the masses with their fifth studio offering, Remnants of Filth, this June. Produced and mixed by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) at Visceral Sound Studios in Bethesda, Maryland and engineered by Mike Harrison at Winter Skies Productions in San Antonio, Texas, Remnants Of Filth offers up 18 pile-driving, socio-political grind hymns in 19 minutes. Vocalist Shane "The Pain" Mclachlan comments of the offering: "Remnants Of Filth is a brutal, in-depth grind record that I feel represents what this band is all about, from past to present. This is total brutal grindcore at its best with nothing less than the 100% punk-as-fuck attitude to compliment what this band is all about!
PHOBIA "22 random acts of violence" (Deep Six) - 15€
What can be said about Phobia that has not already been said? After 18 years of touring, partying, and releasing some of the sickest punk infused grind to ever come out of California, they are once again ready to unleash their latest and greatest. 22 Random Acts Of Violence is a grindcore lover’s dream come true. Phobia’s specialty of blending the ferocity of metal with the attitude of punk is in full-force on this new album.
PHOBIA / EXTINCTION OF MANKIND split (Agipunk) - 12€
These two band need no introduction, both active since the early 90's they've continued developing their sound throughout the years and we are proud to release them. Extinction of Mankind are the heaviest and most perfect fusion of bands like Amebix, Antisect, Discharge and lots of metal, sheer brutality. Phobia play incredibly fast, brutal, tight and technically skilled grindcore with raging lyrics as it's supposed to be. This is the very first grindcore band released by Agipunk (Agigrind?) so we choosed the best!
POISON “sons of evil” (F.O.A.D.) - 16€
Limited edition of 150 copies on blood red vinyl. Pure infernal armageddon, not for the weak!! One of the most deviated, disgusting and anti-musical Death Metal aberrations ever conceived. 2nd pressing on FOAD Records, this LP is made exactly as the cassette version that was circulating in the 80s! Originally released in 1984, “Sons of evil” is the first demo recording from the malevolent and sinister German entity known as POISON. This sounds so raw and extreme that even the band members took their time to decide whether to license a vinyl reissue or not, and the graal got unlocked only when after years of research through the most insane puritan collectors, we tracked a source whose quality was even “better” than the masters owned by the band and got it properly restored and mastered by our wizard H.O.D. at Toxic Basement studio. So one thing is sure: this LP is the matchless, best sounding version of “Sons of evil” you can dream about. Now quoting what has been already said about this gem: as primitive and barbaric as a Stone Age gang-rape, this tape is possessed by total darkness and evil. Musically, this runs the gamut from morbidly mid-paced to intense and somewhat insane. It bears no real similarities to any of their German counterparts, such as Sodom, Destruction or Kreator. The slower parts sound very reminiscent of Hellhammer. The vocals of Virgin Slaughter are possessed and maniacal, at times, his demonic voice actually accentuates the dark mood of the music, rather than detracting from it. As for the rest of the songwriting, this is like a war on the senses. Primitive and violent in nature, the riffs saw through you while the drums pound your skull into oblivion. It is almost difficult to believe something so bestial and grotesque existed back in 1984. The sound is on the same level as the “Death By Metal” demo, from Mantas, and makes the old Venom and Bathory records seem like they were done in high-dollar facilities. “Sons of Evil” is a monstrous offering from a band that had truly tapped into something dark and aggressive. Includes a booklet printed on old school fanzine styled light blue paper, with rare photos, flyers and excerpts from zines/mags of that era!
POISON PLANET "boycott
everything" (Third Party) - 8€
Originally pressed as a 7" on Refuse Records out of Europe for Poison Planet's European tour in June 2011, the US version has been a year long project. The band felt that the 7" format lacked the visual impact that they intended and the lyrics and art had been rushed. The US version is a one sided 12" EP, with a screen printed "B" side. The front and back cover art have been updated and the lyric sheet has expanded from a small jam packed insert that was just columns of white text on a black background to include relevant imagery and additional essays. Lastly, to add to the final package they've included a 24"x36" black and white poster.
Comparisons are consistently made to early 80's Boston hardcore, early Corrosion of Conformity, The Repos, and with this release an emerging element of Dead Kennedys influence.
PRESSING ON "no defeat no capitulation" (Even Worse) - 11€
Portland's based Pressing on put out a small amount of tapes earlier this year,which was more of a rough version of the totally remastered and mixed now known as the "No defeat, no capitulation" record, and boy did it turn out louder and clearer then i would've imagined. Pressing On consists of members of the late and great Talk Is poison, as well as from Ashes Rise, and the still going Raw Nerves. Expect nothing less than total anthemic and defiant hardcore with all around great musicianship, and strong sense of melody in that great Talk Is poison style, yet holding their own. A clenched fist pumper for sure.
PROBLEMI "nije po jus-u" (Rest In Punk) LP - 13€
Classic Yugoslavian punk rock from late 70's. Problemi along with Paraf, Pankrti etc.. were one of the first ex yu punk bands. Biography + rare photos + lyrics sheet + more.

PURA MANIA "cerebros punk"
(Sabotage) - 13€
These guy's are from Vancouver and Mexico City and aren’t the easiest band to stick a catagory to. They mix bits of hardcore punk with a dose of indie weirdness. 2014 saw them release the Ratas De Dos Patas cassette plus a couple of 7″‘s (Musica Para Gente Fea / La Estafa Musical)This is the Debut 12″ from this great band.. new wave-tinged punk a la BLITZ’s New Age with a bit of South American flavor in the vocals.

ΨΥΧΩΣΗ - st (Scarecrow/Labyrinth Of Thoughts) - 11€
Οι Ψύχωση δημιουργήθηκαν το 1993 και έπαιζαν εξαιρετικό crust punk, στα χνάρια των Χαοτικό Τέλος και Ξεχασμένη Προφητεία. Πάρα πολλά live στη Villa Amalias και σχεδόν σε όλους τους αυτο-οργανωμένους χώρους της εποχής. Συμμετείχαν στη συλλογή "Διατάραξη Οικιακής Ειρήνης" ενώ κυκλοφορήσαν και ένα demo το 1994. Κατά τη διάρκεια του 1996 και 1997 ηχογράφησαν 8 κομμάτια για το πρώτο τους μεγάλο δίσκο με σκοπό να τα κυκλοφορήσουν σε βινύλιο κάτι που δεν πραγματοποιήθηκε ποτέ! Το 1998 παίξανε το τελευταίο τους live και στη συνέχεια διαλύθηκαν. Χάρη στη συνεργασία και στην επιμονή της Scarecrow Records και της Labyrinth Of Thoughts, 19 χρόνια μετά κυκλοφορει το χαμένο αυτό album σε βινύλιο. Με νέο mastering και 4σέλιδο με στίχους και αφίσες από τις συναυλίες που συμμετείχε η μπάντα. Περιορισμένη έκδοση σε 350 αντίτυπα.
RAKTA s/t (540) - 15€
This music is equal parts post-punk and incantation, and is psych-hook laden as hell. Ratka is an all-female band from Sao Paulo, Brazil that seem to have come from out of nowhere to make most of the current post-punk/anarcho wave completely irrelevant. Their music is equal parts post-punk and incantation, and is psych-hook laden as hell. The record comes with a red and black on white poster that only adds to the mysterious bruxa vibes that the music gives. Each copy comes with 1 of 4 different 24"x36" silk screened poster.
RED ALERT “the oi! singles 1980/1983” (Common People) - 15€
North East of England outfit Red Alert originally formed in their native Sunderland in early 1979 with a line up of Steve Smith on vocals, Tony Van Frater on guitar, Gaz Stuart on bass, Kid Stocker on guitar and Mitch filling the drum stool. It was this version of Red Alert that recorded the legendary “Third and Final” EP (sometimes know as “Border Guards”), which was released on their own label in the summer of 1980 with all 250 sleeves actually glued together by the band themselves!
Leading Punk label No Future Records picked up on the band (who by now had Nobby on drums and slimmed to a four piece with the departure of Kid Stocker to Red London) and their first release for the label was the legendary “In Britain” EP which shot to the top of the then important Independent Chart.
Incidentally the two demos featured on this release, “S.P.G.” and “I Tore Your Picture Up”, were actually recorded at the same sessions as “In Britain” but, until now, had remained unreleased. A second Indie Chart hit came via mid 82’s “Take no prisoners” EP and they became a leading live attraction following gigs with the likes of The Business, Blitz, The Partisans and Peter & The Test Tube Babies. The “City Invasion” 7” preceded the release of Red Alert’s debut album “We’ve got the power” which, in true Punk value for money style, contained none of the bands singles releases and a different version of “S.P.G.” from that which had appeared on the legendary “Carry on Oi!” LP. A top 5 Indie Album Chart entry, the LP was followed by the six track 12” “There’s a guitar burning” thought this turned out to be the bands last release for No Future as the label folded in early ’84.

Catchy, snotty, raw, hardcore punk that would fit right in on Dangerhouse records or the "boston not l.a." compilation. The b-side features both 7"s (out-of-print) as bonus tracks.

Unofficial collection featuring the early demos.

RHINO 39 - st (Radiation) - 16€
A long forgotten classic LP, finally back in print, in an edition of 500 copies on 180-gram vinyl. Formed in the late '70s at the same high school that spawned L.A. legends T.S.O.L., Rhino 39 had an unfortunate fate. After releasing a legendary single on Dangerhouse in 1979, one of the earliest examples of L.A. hc, lead singer Dave Dacron died in a car accident in 1980. His younger brother took over lead singing duties and though it took another six years for the self-titled debut-LP to be released, it still sounds like classic early 80s L.A. punk. A legendary band with a long forgotten classic LP finally back in print on Radiation Deluxe. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.
RIXE "collection" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Collection neatly compiles RIXE's first 3 Eps on one album. All 12 cuts have been remastered for maximum volume. Rixe appeared from nowhere and went from strength to strength over the two years since the Debut EP Coup Et Blessures was released in February 2015. The EP was their calling card and harked back to the glory years of Bologna's finest Nabat mixed with the classic 80's French Oi! sound. It was instant and loved by all and went on to have six pressings. A year later came Les Nerf A Vif - another four tracker with extra bite and bile. Every track was perfectly recorded and produced. Lean with snarl and each track a nugget of anthemic Oi!. On third EP Bapteme Du Feu there was no let up in quality... more.
RUIN / T.R.I.B.E. - split (Agipunk) - 11€
A whole brigade of veterans for this new release. Ruin feature people from Doom, Disaffect, Debris, Scatha... and play totally 90's crust packed with nowadays powerful sound and anger. Tribe are ex-Scatha and are really close to them, lots of metal breaks that you'll dig even if you don't have long hair. Crust as fuck as always. Gatefold cover.
RUTS "peel sessions" (Euro Fan) - 14€
Reissue of the Peel sessions recorded in 1979 and 1980.

S.H.I.T. "complete S.H.I.T." (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
It could have been Total Shit, Utter Shit, All Shit or any other number of puns but you lucky fuckers get Complete Shit - the 21 track round up of everything these Toronto Shitters have committed to 7” Vinyl from 2014 to 2016 on Static Shock Records, Iron Lung, Lengua Armada Discos and La Vida Es Un Mus. Shit came from the womb fully formed with a stunning Demo from 2012 but that was no surprise as in there ranks was ex members of Violent Future, Urban Blight and Purity Control. The sound is raging hardcore with stomping drums, dirty guitar work with and reverbed vocals. I know you’ve heard that before but the trick is that Shit write songs that stick in your head and a strong production by Jonah Falco. These tracks are too good to be lost on sold out 7”s.
S.H.I.T. "what do you stand for?" (La Vida En Us Mus/ Iron Lung) - 14€
A brief but dense dose of simply hulking intense turmoil. Subtle terminology is trite, so to get to the point: S.H.I.T., the LP, blurs by in under twenty minutes of thrashing hardcore gristle. Gone are the tell-tale training wheels of delayed vocals and endless layers of feedback, here now are the tighter louder songs we'd hoped S.H.I.T. would write. A piercing musical rallying cry for the listless and ever approaching bulldoze march of the future, wrapped in cellophane transfers of melted early hardcore and the best of the last decade's fresh take on simplicity and power.
What do you Stand for? comes housed in a sleeve designed by legendary hc punk outsider and former S.H.I.T. designer, Jaybo. The intricately illustrated hellish image was produced with bleach onto a massive bedsheet, though the entire package is wrapped in a self censored outer sleeve, seemingly in the service of protecting the purchaser's dignity. Additional design by Ryan Tong.
SAD BOYS "demo" (Discos Enfermos) -
Sad Boys is a band from New York with a brutal sound that mixes English punk sound with Japanese pogo-punk and giving all an incredible personality; strongly marked bass-lines under a distorted and screeching guitar , relentless drums on 1-2-1-2-1-2 makes can't stay quite listening to this shit ... and acute and squeaky voice of Emma is fucking punk.
THE INJECTIONS and TOM & BOOT BOYS influences are indisputable and even something of THE WANKYS can be appreciated, but giving it a personal touch with the characteristic voice. 12 tracks that for me are the best of the band and almost impossible to find in the original format of cassette released by the band itself. Very special release with the demo on A side and etched B side with work of Emma B, screenprinted covers in 3 different colors and insert with lyrics and band photo. For me, as simply essential punk.
SARABANTE "poisonous legacy" (Southern Lord) - 13€
Οι Sarabante είναι μια crust / hardcore punk μπάντα από την Αθήνα, που σχηματίστηκε στα τέλη του 2006. Κατά τη διάρκεια του καλοκαιριού του 2011, κυκλοφόρησαν το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ "Remnants".
Το LP κυκλοφόρησε από τη Sara Records, τη δισκογραφική της μπάντας, και στη συνέχεια κυκλοφόρησε η CD έκδοση, σε περιορισμένα αντίτυπα, από τη Southern Lord Records. Ακολούθησε μια περιοδεία στην Ανατολική Ευρώπη και πολλές τοπικές ζωντανές εμφανίσεις, ενώ την άνοιξη του 2013 κυκλοφόρησαν το "Έρμαια Των Καιρών / Under The Shadows", ένα 7" EP από τη Man in Decline Records. Έχοντας επηρεαστεί σε μεγάλο βαθμό από την καταπίεση και προσπαθώντας να αντέξουν τη συνεχιζόμενη κρίση στη χώρα τους, σφυρηλατημένοι σε περιόδους ακραίας λιτότητας, 'μαύρισαν' ακόμα περισσότερο τις συνθέσεις τους, τις οποίες ηχογράφησαν το 2014. Το νέο τους υλικό είναι πιο σκοτεινό, πιο βρώμικο και πιο ειλικρινές και καταστροφικό από την πρώτη τους κυκλοφορία. Το «Poisonous Legacy" θα είναι διαθέσιμο από τη Southern Lord μόνο σε βινύλιο και ψηφιακό κατέβασμα.
Sarabante is a crust/ hardcore punk band from Athens, Greece formed in late 2006.. During the summer of 2011, they released their first album “Remnants”.
The LP was released by Sara Records, the band’s own label, followed by a limited edition CD by Southern Lord Records. Ensuing was an Eastern European tour and numerous local live shows, while releasing in spring of 2013 “Έρμαια Των Καιρών / Under The Shadows”, a 7” EP via Man in Decline Records. Heavily influenced by the oppression and trying to withstand the ongoing crisis in their home country Greece, forged in times of extreme austerity, blackened even more their focus in composing the new material, which they recorded in 2014. Their new stuff is darker, filthier and more sincere and destructive than the first. “Poisonous Legacy” will be available from Southern Lord on vinyl + digital downloads only.
SECT "no cure for death" (Southern Lord) - 17€ (Black Vinyl)
Following the signing of North American hardcore group SECT to Southern Lord earlier this year, the band has since completed recording their second full-length, and label debut, No Cure For Death, and with plans to release the album on November 24th. No Cure For Death was recorded with Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
Comprised of an international cast of scene veterans, who cut their teeth in that formative moment of political, cynical, antagonistic extremes, SECT unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, Fall Out Boy, The Damned Things). The result of these musicians’ alignment is a caustic, riotous, belligerent style of vile hardcore fed by a boundless well of socio-political vitriol.
SECT gets right down to the blast beats and breakdowns that fight it out in their chaotic jams. They cut the shit and go for the throat with no time to waste, “because the Orwellian police states and irreparable social and ecological disasters we once saw off on the horizon are now on our front doorsteps, in full swing. And in just such a volatile, precarious moment as this for civilization, there is more reason than ever to keep lashing out at a world more suicidally-bent on its own destruction and the exploitation of people, species and the ecosystem itself, than perhaps ever before in history.”
For SECT, this is the purpose of hardcore as they know it, conveying an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action.
Southern Lord will release No Cure For Death on November 24th; stand by for audio samples, videos, preorder links, and more in the days ahead.

Great quality repro repress. Yellow vinyl with insert.
SEX PRISONER "tannhäuser gate"
(RSR) - 13€
The power violence revival continues. Sex Prisoner Tucson, Arizona - Powerviolence/Hardcore unit, sound a lot like Crossed Out mixed with some Infest. The sound is heavy, abrasive, and definitely rife with anger blending powerviolence with a beatdown jock and metalcore approach. They rarely venture into full-on thrash, which is a plus and offering sixteen furious bursts of burly powerviolence/hardcore. Corelease with Deep Six Records.
SICK HORSE "good body feeling" (Static Age) - 14€
Big, groovy, psychedelic, post-punk rock debut LP by Berlins' unpredictable, multi-dysfunctional, multinational hipster-boy group. As majestic, tragic, delirious and powerful as...well, a sick horse. Buy it." Sig Vishnu (Heavy Metal) "Sick horse play loud. Sick horse play hard. Sick horse play tight. And if you don't like the songs it doesn't fuckin matter cos they've been up for two days and they didn't miss a beat." Daryl Sulfate (Diät)
SIEKIERA "nowa aleksandria" (Mannequin) - 18€
Official repress one of the most important records in Polish punk rock history. Originally released in 1986, the album caught brilliantly the cold, sultry atmosphere of the dark times of last years of communism in Poland. Influenced by British giants like Joy Division or Killing Joke, they composed their own industrial mantras about alienation in totalitarian society. If you are bored by the usual Post Punk/Goth records from the 80's than this is a top tip. recordings, but thankfully these songs are still best appreciated for their enduring power and not just a curious relic from the past.
SILENCE "the deafening sound of absolutely nothing" (Profane Existence) - 14€
Silence are a highly active post-punk/peace-punk band from Pittsburgh, PA. “The Deafening Sound of Absolutely Nothing” strives (and succeeds) to achieve the perfect mix of between peace and post punk. By taking influences from The Mob, Bauhaus, Zounds, Killing Joke, Amebix, Crass, Conflict, Internal Autonomy and Joy Division SILENCE have created what can only be described a brilliant debut LP. At one moment this record is dark, heavy, and atmospheric and then the next moment it makes you want to dance and sing along. Lyrically SILENCE are much closer to the anarcho side of the previously listed influences. Lyrics focus on a variety of topics but often have a strong focus on the way punk and activist communities deal with political struggle in our current political climate.
“The Deafening Sound of Absolutely Nothing” comes with a 16 page magazine size zine containing lyrics, personal writings and song explanations. Designed, printed and assembled by the band themselves in true D.I.Y. fashion.
SINATRAS "are you ready"
(Rave Up) - 11€
Formed in 1976, Sinatras were one of the greatest and obscure outfits of the early U.$. punk scene! In 1979 they released an amazing 7" ("TEDDY CRASHES BLOND DIES / SOME OTHER BOYS") now totally impossible to find. Their sound was directly inspired from bands such NY Dolls and Heartbreakers.

SKIN LIKE IRON "arrival"
(React!) - 17€
Skin Like Iron’s new LP, “Arrival” features 10 songs that are mournful, somber and eerily melodic. Fusing an eclectic mixture of influences from Wolfbrigade to Black Flag, Siege, and even The Pixies and The Cure, this album succeeds in accurately portraying Skin Like Iron’s unique take on hardcore music. Huge guitar riffs combine with powerful basslines and pounding rhythms to form dramatic compositions that are saturated with melody and atmosphere. The music is supported by lyrics that search for hope and reason, while questioning the damages human beings visit upon one another. Each song is an attempt to reconcile the way in which life’s fleeting moments of beauty are tempered by depression and failure. “Arrival” is a record about duality: Hope and hopelessness. Beauty and ugliness. Virtue versus the failings of human nature.
“Arrival” was recorded at The Atomic Garden with Jack Shirley, and is the band’s most ambitious production to date. The album artwork was produced by guitarist/vocalist, Alex Capasso, and continues the visual theme of the band’s two previous 12″ albums.
SONIC YOUTH "evol" (Eurofan) - 14€ (Transparent Vinyl)
EVOL is the third studio album by Sonic Youth. It was released in May 1986, through SST Records.

STAN OSKARZENIA "pięść wiary" (Black Wednesday / No Pasaran / Zima) - 6€
Good punk rock from Poland. Originally released on tape in 1993.
STEVE ADAMYK BAND "st" (P. Trash) - 7€
Ottawa pop-punk sensations' debut full-length album! Catchy as hell, pop-punk jams infused with a nice power-pop flavor! This shit rips and hits hard.
STINKY RATS "vergognati" (Gonna
Puke) - 11€
This comes straight from the years when Torino's stages were put on fire by stellar bands like DECLINO, NEGAZIONE, NERORGASMO and tons more... and STINKY RATS had nothing to envy.
This LP includes their legendary "Vergognati" 12" that was originally issued by KINA's Blu Bus and WRETCHED's Chaos Produzioni in 1986, here re-edited and mastered from the original reels (!!!)...
A true pearl of pure Italian HC that had people from Negazione and Declino behind the mixer when it was recorded... Bonus tracks include the entire Demotape 1983
STRONG BOYS "riotshock" (Milk Run) - 14€
Strong Boys are a gay hardcore punk band from Dublin who are inspired in bringing about the destruction of bad attitudes and religious brainwashing. They write songs like “No Pope”, “Two Dads” and “Cocks and Crosses” with it’s opening line, “You call yourself a Catholic, But you like sucking cock”. This is queer liberation backed by a gruff Negative Approach style of hardcore punk. It seems that many gay hardcore bands verge on parodies where once you get over the initial chuckle of pun names like Black Fag, Gayrilla Biscuits and Youth of Togay, comes the realisation that most are kind of average. Not so Strong Boys who have more in common with legendary hardcore queer rockers Limp Wrist. Their debut LP is full of invective bile. On colored vinyl.
SURROUNDINGS st (Free Cake) -
Baltimore, MD's Surroundings offer their most crushing material to date with their debut self-titled full-length. After a split 10" with New Jersey's Pellinore and numerous full U.S. tours, Surroundings has quickly made a name for themselves. Surroundings offer 11 drug-induced tracks on this 12" piece of wax, which includes furious speed not unlike Terrorizer or Haymaker, to crushing drone much like Neurosis or His Hero Is Gone. LP includes digital download.
SYNTHETIC ID "apertures" (Erste
Theke Tontraeger) - 8€
Widely heralded as one of the best new bands in the SF Bay Area. SYNTHETIC ID play taught, angular, aggressive post punk oft compared to The Wipers, Gang of Four, Wire and Mission of Burma. This record uses tension to level whatever is put in front of it. Use it to flatten your neighbor's house. Includes download code. First pressing limited to only 500 copies. "Synthetic ID sound like Greg Sage, D. Boone, and Colin Newman fabricating the house band for the International Space Station. Or better yet, spending three days in close quarters on an uncharted trek to the Sea of Tranquility. Anxious paranoia dripping from the walls. It's jerky, derailed, and draws heavily from early post-punk, but chugs along at a classic punk tempo, blasting out totally agitated lyrics the whole time. Space madness? Or just a need to escape the surface of this planet, even if it just be through the act of playing two minute punk jams? Either way, it's exciting and different.
THIRD WORLD CHAOS "new move for
error" (Fan Club) - 13€
European pressing of this cult Philippine hardcore punk band from the early 1980s. I don't know the story behind this band, but the sound here is very similar to So Cal bands like Adolescents, Channel 3, etc. fast paced catchy melodic hc/punk. Really great stuff from a band that's almost uknown outside the Philippines.
TOKEN ENTRY "from beneath the streets" (Mad At The World) - 14€
By the time Token Entry released "From Beneath The Streets" in 1987 on Kevin Seconds' Positive Force label, they were already one of NYHC's most beloved bands. Having existed in a slightly different incarnation as Gilligan's Revenge in the early half of the 1980's, Token Entry was comprised of scene vets from New York's hardcore-rich borough of Queens. One of the few NYHC bands of that era that managed to tour extensively, they were notorious for their high-energy shows and their lack of patience for tough-guy posturing. No account of late '80s, CBGB matinee-era NYHC is complete without this album. The present reissue makes "From Beneath The Streets" available on vinyl for the first time since the late '90s, complete with faithful reproductions of the original covers and inserts. LP includes free MP3 download of the entire album.
TORTÜR "demo" (Farewell) - 13€
Black vinyl! - Tortür hail from Los Angeles, CA play typical noisy D-beat crasher crust. Expect nothing less than hellish rawpunk and a raw D-beat attack. Heavily influenced by Disclose, Discharge, Impalers, Warvictims...
The record contains both their 2 demos from 2016 and 2017 as well as their Flexi EP. 17 sonx in total!
The Cover art was done by Robin Wiberg! You may know Robin Wiberg as the drummer for DISFEAR, or from his Instagram account where he regularly posts his punk art. His drawings are stylistically very raw, which is fitting as he hails from Scandinavia, which is the birth place of “raw punk".
DIS nightmare continues! Noise, not music!
TOTAL CHAOS "early years" (Radiation) - 14€
RECORD STORE DAY EDITION. Though Total Chaos' first record came out in 1993, their sound is pure '80s classic hardcore and Southern California thrash. Collected here are their earliest original recordings before some of them were re-recorded for Epitaph. Tracks 1 to 5 were recorded in September 93, tracks 6 to 7 in March 93, taken from the debut LP 'We Are The Future', tracks 8 and 9 in July 92, taken from the live 7" 'Nightmares' and tracks 10 to 15 were recorded in June 91, taken from the band's first demo.

TOUMITTUJEN JUHLA "1983/84" (Fight) - 15€
Autumn 1983, Tampere SS and Marionetti split. Some members of both bands met and formed a new band which became Tuomittujen Juhla. They had an aim to create something special and new, which was not supposed to be hardcore punk. The band released two demo tapes during 1983 and 1984. The Last demo was supposed to be released as self-financed EP via band’s Rapagonda label, but was eventually shelved. Tuomittujen Juhla run out of steam soon after and some of the members joined to Kuolleet Kukat. The A-side of this album contains demo from 1983 and B-side demo from 1984. Some of these tracks were released as part of compilation tapes at the time . Now for the first time on vinyl.
s/t (Skuld) – 13€
Official Repress of the first TRAGEDY Album on Skuld Releases, this time in the original package of the US Pressing (Tragedy Records) - From the opening acoustic intro to the last dark, thrashed out note this is one seriously intense album. The obvious comparisons His Hero Is Gone and From Ashes Rise are there for sure but to me this has a bit more of a straight up hardcore feel to it. That said though, this has some excellent heavy pounding drum beats happening and some changes in pace, pitch and mood that are so tight and sudden they scream for your attention. The harsh throaty vocals belt out lyrics that are written as single block paragraphs dealing with overtly sociopolitical issues all looked at from a less than positive point of view. This record is very heavy, very angry and although you will probably like it, it will not make you happy!
TRAP THEM "seizures in barren praise" (Deathwish) - 18€ (Clear Vinyl)
Recorded by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, "Seizures In Barren Praise" shows Trap Them at their most vicious. Having mastered their art of aural bludgeoning, the album musically stomps and claws with emotion. "Barren Praise" itself is a fictional ghost town version of every non-fiction town" says McKenney. "Lyrically, previous Trap Them releases are all stories from people who had lived in "Barren Praise" before deciding to up and leave. This is the story of those who stayed behind to tell the stories of watching everything unfold..." states McKenney. Upon listening, it's hard not to picture fragments of your own life as part of the chaotic debris that are these fictional lives. The friends, family, and faces of those that make up the ensemble cast of your own life are all there, indirectly. Making "Seizures In Barren Praise" a broken mirror for the world. Exposing every fear, weakness, and wound.
TROTSKIDS st (Do Or Die) - 15€
Trotskids are probably one of the bands that made a lasting impression on the French scene during the 80's. Official repress of their 1st mini LP 6 tracks released in 1984 + 2 tracks from "Chaos" compilation + 2 unreleased tracks (demo '84 & live '85) with insert, 500 copies made, yellow wax.
UNA BÈSTIA INCONTROLABLE "10-11-12 demo" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
UNA BÈSTIA INCONTROLABLE was born in 2012 as a side project with members of GLAM, DESTINO FINAL and CROSTA. They got wind of GLAM playing a show in London and decided to jump on the bill. They got a set together and recorded it in a rush to have some tapes to sell as said show. The tape recorded mere weeks after the band's inception remains an extremely powerful recording that only 100 lucky people managed to get on its original format. It shows the band as its rawest, pushing the limits of their previous bands as far as possible and setting the mood for what "Observant Com El Mon Es Destrueix " LP would be.
10-11-12 comes housed in a 12 panel poster similar to the ones CRASS records made popular in the 80s with artwork by Guillem El Muro and Oriol Roca.
UNA BÈSTIA INCONTROLABLE "metamorfosi" (La Vida En Us Mus) -
Since emerging fully-formed at the end of 2012 Una Bestia Incontrolable have opened up a place for themselves among the very best hardcore-punk bands in the world. International hardcore is in rude health at the moment but while some indulge in enjoyable well-crafted genre exercises, a crushing mosh-part here, a studied d-beat there, UBI have developed a sound that's compelling and punk, but clearly apart from the autophagic morass that is often punk in the internet age.
Much of Metamorfosi finds itself as a series of shifting hypnotic pulses rolling into each other. Bass and drums chug onwards, a swirling erratic heartbeat, an oncoming force, a nagging buzz and rumble tickling your hindbrain just on the murky borders of conscious thought, as the guitar scritches and scratches with grubby panic, insistent catchy riffs needling and dragged out like stuckthought phrases, daggersharp licks shimmying forth in the sinister thrum.
The record reverberates with a sense of seething distress, mind and body teetering on the edge of a cataclysmic drop, Abric De Plom (Lead Coat) is a recurring nightmare, swallowing you up and unavoidable, the No Us Ho Esperaveu (You Weren't Expecting It) finds a militaristic drive as it echoes with the cold dislocation that is the dull pain-throb baseline of millenial life, Nosaltres Som La Carn (We Are the Flesh) thunders with physical discomfort, collapsing in on itself, Tot Sol is a freeing mechanistic 1-2 rush, the title track a stuttering scream of transformation.
Metamorfosi swings and lives with the threat of something constantly approaching, a change, an ending, some long-threatened eschaton finally invoked, something out there, a beast maybe, of some kind, uncontrollable and almost here. (Joe Briggs)
The album comes in a full colour sleeve with lyric insert designed by guitarrist Guillem El Muro and includes download code.
UNKIND "polku" (Self Released) - 10€

Polku is the band's latest two song EP, which was released on February 17th, 2017. On Polku, Unkind offer up two songs of bleak and ominous sounding hardcore, punk, crust, sludge, and metal. Overall, Polku makes for a great listen and should not be missed. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
VARUKERS "bloodsuckers" (Radiation) - 12€
The Varukers were one of the first groups of the UK 82 movement - the second generation of punk rock that took the spirit of ’77 and merged it with the incessant beat of NWOBHM – responsible for creating UK hardcore. Heavily inspired by Discharge, The Varukers released three 7”s in the early ‘80s before this, their first and most definitive album, came out in 1983 on the legendary Riot City Records (Vice Squad, Abrasive Wheels, Chaos U.K.). Back in print on LP, thanks to Radiation Reissues, Bloodsuckers is one of the definitive pieces of early UK hardcore, full of Sabbath inspired guitar work, pounding rhythms and aggressive anarchistic lyrical content. ESSENTIAL!
VARUKERS "vintage varukers" (Antisociety) - 11€
A very nice records of the rare songs from 80-85. Tracks taken from their fisrt demo tape in 1980, “No Future For A Future” 7” that was released on German Pogar Records, Outtakes of the 1983 “Bloodsuckers” LP recording session, We don’t Need Nuclear Force” comp and its limited bonus 7” in 1986 and “Motor City 9” comp LP. Comes with extra sheet with rare interview and words of songs and pics.
VARUKERS "how do you sleep ???????" (Matus) - 14€
Official reissue of VARUKERS' "How Do You Sleep?" album from 2000 and another healthy dose of original UK82-sound meets metallic DISCHARGE/BROKEN BONES riffing and a pissed off Rat on vocals. Just great!
VIBRATORS "guilty" (Radiation Reissues) - 13€
The Vibrators, much like The Stranglers, were significantly older than the other bands comprising the London punk scene in 1977. What they lacked in refined skill, they made up for with insidiously catchy songwriting that captured the minimalist energy of their younger punk rock peers. After releasing two of the essential documents of the punk-era ('Pure Mania' and 'V2'), the original Vibrators broke up, only to reform two years later and issue 'Guilty', a first class piece of power-pop/punk mastery, bolstered by the melodic songwriting. Ripe for a reissue, 'Guilty' is finally back in print on vinyl.
VICTIM "all our dreams are gone" (Rave Up) - 13€
Formed in Belfast in Mid -1977, Victim soon became familiar faces on the emerging Belfast scene. Following their appearance on the legendary UTV punk documentary 'It Makes You Want Top Spit' and a rapidly increasing live following, Terri Hooley signed the band to his Good Vibrations label in 1978 and released Strange Thing By Night / Mixed Up World 7". Early gigs saw them playing with The Fall and Revillos as well as playing the legendary Factory club to accompany the screening of Shellshock Rock, a film on Irish punk featuring among others Victim. A second release Why Are Fire Engines Red / I Need You on TJM secured good reviews and radio support from John Peel despite its horrendous cover. In November 1979 Victim supported the Damned on an extensive tour. Rat Scabies produced the band's third and in my view best single The Teenage / Junior Criminals / Hang Onto Yourself released in 1980 on Illuminated records. This anthology contains a great selection of all their punk material. If you are a fan of Undertones and Stiff Little Fingers, don't miss it.
VIRUS "you can't ignore it forever"
(Vomitopunkrock) - 16€
(Black) / 17€ (Purple)
One of (at least) two 80s UK bands using the moniker, not to mention the (at least) two bands from the states who chose it as well. This Virus originally formed in the summer of 1983 in Gillingham, Dorset, only managed to crank out two demo tapes before splitting up, but the second, "You Can't Ignore It Forever," is a brilliant slab of UK/anarcho punk that is loaded with fucking fantastic tunes. They had a track ("Oven Overture," from this demo) on a Mortarhate comp after they called it quits, and then 1/2 of the band started up again two decades later. Described as a mix between the Subhumans, Amebix, and Flux of Pink Indians Virus have that raw angry sound , not afraid to be slow like the Mob they will sit perfectly on your shelf alongside Alternative and Omega Tribe.
This is official reissue their second demo "you can't ignore it forever" originally released as a cassette tape in 1984 plus bonus songs from their first demo.

THE WAR GOES ON "s/t" (Adult Crash) - 13€
The record that has been in the works for more than four years from these K-town degenerates is now ready. We are proud to present the dark and rough reality that is THE WAR GOES ON.

This record sees singer Ronni Dybdahl delve further into the depths of darkness and gloom than ever before, and come back with an anthemic hard pounding street punk record that somehow blurs the lines between Oi!, Punk, and Hardcore....

WASTED "the truth will not be televised" (Trujaca Fala) - 12€
5-song 12" released to coincide with their 20th anniversary tour! Limited edition of 600 copies.
The previous album "Here Comes The Darkness" (2013) was really well received and the band continued to pull crowds and had people wanting to hear more new songs rather than old ones - the best feedback a 20 year old band can wish for. These new songs continue on the same path than its predecessor, although a bit more melancholic and melodic, some songs faster and dirtier. These catchy and energetic songs meet with thought-provoking lyrics about media deception and misinformation, racism, mental problems, depression…
WRETCHED "la tua morte non
aspetta" (Self Released) -
Official repress of the classic second 12" released by Chaos Produzioni in 1986. Not as wild as the early stuff, but the spirit remains!

The sound in this 2013 version has been remastered and an extra song has been added to make this release even more interesting. Soon to be another expensive collectible item, so, what are you waiting for?
V/A "BEACH BOULEVARD" (Radiation) -
This album has so much early punk rock history it's SICK! RIK L RIK, The Crowd, the Simpletones. Rik L Rik is the hardest band on this record.

V/A “HARDCORE LJUBLJANA” (FV) – 14€
An official (?) reissue of the long-out-of-print 1985 Hardcore Ljubljana compilation showcasing the best Yugoslavian hardcore of the era and features racket from:
UBR - probably the best known on here, and maybe even the best known Yugo hc band throughout the international hc scene // ODPADKI CIVILIZACIJE - blazing, raw, straightforward hc with memorable songs // TOZIBABE - Three-piece, all women, very dark punk band. Their once elusive Dezuje EP has been reissued and is now relatively easy to find, and is one of the most unique and brilliant punk records worldwide! Their tracks on this comp are more on the rudimentary side, but are still invigorating in that "inept + genuine expression" kind of way // EPIDEMIJA - More raging fast and raw hardcore - like a rawer and harsher version of early DC stuff, such as SOA // III. KATEGORIJA - Last but definitely not least, perhaps the strongest material on the comp! Similarly to the previous bands - raw, fast, pounding hardcore with convincing gruff vocals, and moments of attempted melody that never fail to explode into a full-blown hc assault! Six-panel fold-out cover with a poster on one side, and lyrics/information on the other side.

VARIOUS ARTISTS "Veritahroja – Suomipunkin
Salatut Sävelet 1979-1983" (Svart) - 19€
Following last year's successful and nearly sold out KUOLEMAN TAPPANEET / THE DEATH KILLERS compilation album that showcased punk rock groups across the country, VERITAHROJA / BLOODSTAINS takes the project a step further. Whereas the previous compilation only included material from private pressings and small label seven inches, this one goes even deeper. The focus now is HIDDEN GEMS, UNPUBLISHED SONGS and RARE DEMOS, all compiled by Juho Hänninen, the guy behind the previous comp too. LP comes with a 60 page magazine.
Although BLOODSTAINS is strictly vinyl only with no digital release or download coupons, we've picked three tracks from the album to better give people an idea what to expect.
