NEW ARRIVALS & RESTOCKS - 24.04.2019
EP
ABSOLUTIST "traverse" (Distro-Y /Svoboda) - 5
Scottish Dark Hardcore/Crust crushers Absolutist are returning with a new 3 track 7″ release to follow up their split 12″ with Belgians Link in 2013.
The new EP will see the powerful three piece that is Absolutist blast out three tracks that brings the sounds of their epic ‘Fall To None’ off their previous split, using the absolute elements of their emotive darkness that draws down into a driving d-beat/crust.


ANTISECT "out from the void" (Antisociety) - 8

Re-issue of classic Arnarcho-Punk 7 originally released through Endangered Musik in 1985.

CHAIN CULT "isolated / noise & regret" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 7€
Chain Cult from Athens, Greece return with a new two track 7" after releasing their much loved demo on vinyl just a few months ago. On Isolated, Chain Cult have upped the intensity and dark atmospherics. The sound is bigger, focused and anthemic. The guitar work is haunting and flanged and the rhythm section locked in, keeping the energy high. It sits somewhere between Vex's Sanctuary 12", a more uptempo Killing Joke and Warsaw while remaining a band of their time.
Isolated comes housed in a pocket sleeve designed by the bands signature designer A.D. Visions which also created the lyric insert.

KATASTROF "s/t" (Adult Crush) - 6€
Furious Swedish hardcore punk. Should appeal to people who dig Totalitär, Herätys and the likes... 5 tracks recorded @ The Communichaos Media Clay Station.

LITOVSK "single round volume 4" (Build Me a Bomb) - 6€
Two brand new songs. Great post punk from France.


SCREAMING SNEAKERS "m
arching orders (Revoltation) - 8

Screaming Sneakers started life in South Florida before relocating to New York City. Τhe band only released the one ep, 1982's Marching Orders. Featuring a top vocal from Lisa Nash, as well as the talents of Gary Sunshine (guitar), Bud Gangemi (bass) and Mark Evans (drums), this is a song that wraps up dark lyrics in a bright fizzing rush of a tune. Violent Days" is a great 80s punk anthem and the standout track on this 4 song EP, however fans of death rock might be attracted to the melancholic, new wave jams of "Grin and Bear" and "Reflections". This recent 7" fanclub import isn't cheap, but it's a lot more affordable than the 1982 original.


LP

999 (NINE NINE NINE) "the biggest prize in sport" (Restless Empire) - 16€
After two terrific albums with United Artists, the boys in 999 signed a deal with Polydor and released what is now considered as their finest full length LP, "The Biggest Prize In Sport". While still a 'punk' band, 999 were born during the pub scene and had more meat on their musical bones than most punks, and instead of turning away from their punk sound, they simply refined it. Upon first listening to this album, many folks were amazed to find out that 999 were a great rock n roll band, punk or no punk. The edges are still there, but they are more well-rounded this time out thanks to producer Vic Maile. The anthemic "Boys In The Gang" starts off the set in style (but 999 always knew how to kickstart an album). "Inside Out", with Guy Days' twisted guitar riff, picks up the pace. Although "Trouble" slows things down with it's reggae groove, it's such a great change of pace (Nick Cash's wail sounds similar to the Specials' Terry Hall on this track). "Fun Thing" has a great little hook and a powerful guitar solo that will grab you by the balls. "Hollywood", about their first trip to California, received solid airplay in the U.S., and has remained a 999 classic ever since. "Stop! Stop!" is a bouncy little bubblegum punk nugget. Practically every track a classic.

ABANDONED "killed by faith" (Radiation) - 15€
Originally released in 1985, this is the sole album by Tony Cadenas' own The Abandoned, the band he formed after the Adolescents original break up in 1981. Sounding a lot like Tony's original band but with an heavier Germs influence, and a more metallic, darker, almost Motörhead-esque touch. As long as Adolescents got back on track, right before releasing their mid '80s comeback masterpiece 'Brats In Battalions' this obscure page of California punk rock history got completely forgotten and was never reopened until today. A band that really pushed the boundaries for the time while sticking to their roots, something most bands were not able to do. A must for all California punk rock maniacs out there!

ADOLESCENTS - s/t (Restless Empire) - 16€
Adolescents, also known as The Blue Album due to its cover design, is the debut studio album by American punk rock band the Adolescents, released in April 1981 on Frontier Records. Recorded after guitarist Rikk Agnew and drummer Casey Royer joined the band, it features several songs written for their prior group, the Detours, including "Kids of the Black Hole" and "Amoeba", which became two of the Adolescents' most well-known songs. Adolescents was one of the first hardcore punk albums to be widely distributed throughout the United States, and became one of the best-selling California hardcore albums of its time.[1] The band never toured in support of it, and broke up four months after its release. The Blue Album lineup of Agnew, Royer, guitarist Frank Agnew, bassist Steve Soto and singer Tony Brandenburg reunited several times in subsequent years, but only for brief periods. Limited repress on Restless Empire. Blue/black splatter vinyl.

THE ASTRONAUTS "it's all done by mirrors" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
The Astronauts second album It’s All Done By Mirrors was originally released by All the Madmen in 1983 and finally gets reissued on vinyl for the first time. Original copies are now really sought after and on a lot of people's wants lists due to both its scarcity and its status among outsider art, free music and weirdly enough peace punk fans. It’s All Done by Mirrors is a stunning collection of explosive pop songs and traditional folk ballads and considered to be the pinnacle of the Astronauts recorded output. It’s easy to hear and see why. Musically it’s tighter and more focused than on the debut album Peter Pan Hits the Suburbs and lyrically it’s on another level. From Mark Astronaut's lyrical pen comes a woman dreaming of the Dorset coast whilst writing to her former lover (Seagull Mania); or the man on the street and his wife living out the final day before nuclear destruction (Typically English Day). Mark Astronaut really should been seen in the same light as Ray Davies from the Kinks with his observations of a time long gone. Three of the tracks feature legendary sax player Lol Coxhill. As with all Astronauts releases - totally under rated yet totally essential.

AXE RASH - st (Adult Crash) - 14€
Hardcore punk band from Stockholm/Sweden. New LP from this raging swedenpunx that vocalist is fucking pissed! Fast, abrasive and vicious but always full of intricate, catchy as hell riffs.

BAD RELIGION "into the unknown" (Fan Club) - 15€
Fan Club edition of the black sheep amongst the Bad Religion catalog.  Released in 1983 and long-dismissed from the band's legacy, this record saw BR delving into prog rock and new wave influences. Definitely worth a listen.

BEASTIE BOYS "we rock well: rare tv apperances" (TV Party) - 16€
What we have here is a pure blast of Beastie's hip hop mania, featuring tracks from 1984-1992, the golden era of hip-hop and The Beastie Boys' greatest period. This is an amazing collection of rare tracks, including recordings from TV appearances on MTV, Letterman and The Arsenio Hall Show. Expect renditions of classic songs s.a. '(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)', 'Brass Monkey' and more. 17 songs in total.

BELGRADO "obraz" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
Obraz is a deconstruction of reality to its basic forms and most primitive elements. The starting point after maximum destruction. A reconstruction towards a new reality. The world of images and a thousand spectacles, fragmented, dismantled and reassembled. Dynamism, rhythm, energy and movement. Creative sense over technique. Reality is a construction that we ourselves create.
Belgrado delivers a blend of post-punk that takes its influence from many different styles and combines them together into a new form and rhythm. Carefully constructed sound compositions driven by feelingand the senses. Geometrical figures set in motion. Inspired by the mechanical pulse of minimal synth, the hypnotic sounds of dub, the atmosphere of psychedelic and African music, French cold wave and the post-punk classics.

BISHOP GREEN "a chance to change" (Rebellion) - 16€
Packed shows, sold out tours, both their six-track debut 12" and debut full-length "Pressure" get re-press after re-press... does BISHOPS GREEN really need any further introduction? I don't think so either, but we at REBELLION RECORDS sure as hell are damn proud to present you guys the brand new sophomore album by Canada's leading street punk band entitled "A CHANCE TO CHANGE"!
With this album the band found a bridge between their raw and powerful debut EP, the passionate and resistful "Pressure" LP and their wild and rowdy live shows capturing it all on "A Chance To Change". So what are you still waiting for?!

BLITZ "time bomb: early singles & demos collection" (Radiation) - 15€
A pure shot of abrasive punk/rock 'n' roll with a hint of working class Oi!, Blitz were among the most influential punk bands ever. It was Gary Bushell (who wrote for "Sounds" and was later dubbed the God Father of Oi!) who brought the band to the attention of his friend Chris Berry, who had just set up No Future records with a bank loan and high hopes. No Future 001 catalog (and Blitz's debut release) was a 4 track EP titled "All Out Attack", a 20,000 copy bestseller that made the label's fortune, later to become the most representative of the whole UK82 movement. Its follow-up, "Never Surrender", reached number 2 in the Indie charts, while their 3rd EP, "Warriors", showed their slight move towards the singalong-style of classic OI!. Before shifting to a more new wave-influenced vein right by the end of 1983, they managed to reach number 2 in the charts with a fourth and last 'punk' single, "New Age". This 1980-1983 complete retrospective features all four aforementioned singles along with their very first recording session from 1980, the legendary 'Timebomb' demos, and 4 cuts from the "Voice Of A Generation" demos!

BLITZ "voice of generation" (Radiation) – 16.50€ (180 gr vinyl)
Raw, violent and catchy, Blitz's 1982 debut album sounded like a shot of pure rock and roll through the violence of the English working class. Made up by two punks and two skinheads, with a lot to say about violence and football, Blitz appealed to all kinds of lowlifes, who finally had a voice for their generation. 180 gram vinyl reissue with printed inner sleeve, contains 3 bonus tracks: Voice of Generation from V/A Total Noise, Nation on Fire and Youth from V/A "Carry on Oi". Total classic.

BLITZ "second empire justice" (Restless Empire) - 17€
Limited repress on Restless Empire."When Crisis had their own personal Joy Division epiphany, they ultimately became Death in June. When the rowdy Oi! band The Blitz went through the same thing, they abruptly changed musical course and released Second Empire Justice, alienating their skinhead fanbase almost overnight. Like Joy Division, New Order, and Death in June, Blitz’s name had sketchy political connotations; Nietzschean song titles like “New Age” didn’t help. In fact, it was “New Age” and especially its promo video, which exaggerated things just a little bit by stating the band were from Manchester (really, they were from nearby New Mills) – that signaled the sea change in the band’s sound. Suddenly the Blitz were dressed in all black dress shirts, and it sounded like Bernard Sumner was guesting on guitar. Oi! seer Gary Bushell had claimed Blitz’s 1982 Voice of a Generation LP was like The Clash’s debut album “in terms of feel, suss and relevance.” Comparisons like this came to aquick halt after Second Empire Justice came out." (Cvlt Nation)

BLITZ "no future for april fools" (Radiation) - 15€
Blitz were among the most influential punk bands ever. It was Gary Bushell (who wrote for Sounds and was later dubbed the 'Godfather of Oi!') who brought the band to the attention of his friend Chris Berry, who had just set up No Future records with a bank loan and high hopes. No Future 001 (and Blitz's debut release) was a 4-track EP titled 'All Out Attack', a 20,000-copy bestseller that made the label's fortune, later to become the most representative of the whole UK82 movement. Its follow-up, 'Never Surrender', reached number 2 on the Indie charts, while their 3rd EP, 'Warriors', showed their slight move towards the sing-a-long style of classic Oi! Recorded live at the legendary Lyceum in London in April of 1982, just after the release of their second 7" (with a few tracks from the Skunx club in Islington recorded a few weeks later) this is the band at their absolute live peak. Crucial UK OI! recorded live, the way the genre was meant to be heard, with a beer in one hand and the other with a fist in the air. Blazing and brutal and classic UK82.

BREAK OUT "Breakout Aka Intensified Chaos"  (Vomitopunkrock) - 17€
Formed in 1980, Intensified Chaos (changing their name to Breakout in 1983) were a D.I.Y. 80s UK Punk Band from the West Country. With one boot on Oi! and the other on the raw Uk82 sounds from the era, the band survived a myriad of line-up changes (including one in the vocalist slot in 1983) and recorded a bunch of urgent, powerful and incendiary demos that only a few lucky ones could enjoy until now.This lp presents a thorough overview of their surviving recorded demos from 1982 to 1984, 14 tracks of pure pissed off, rough Punk to finally make justice to this unfairly obscure bunch.Only one of their recorded songs(“Waste Away” by Breakout, featured on the hard to find Punk compilation album “Wet Dreams” in 1984) was ever published on a record, so this is the very first time this songs are available on vinyl. Raw, uncompromising working class punk for the Thatcher era, up the Punks!

BUSINESS "suburban rebels" (Radiation) - 15€
The debut LP by Oi! legends The Business, originally released in 1983. Formed in South London in 1979 the group started playing Oi! concerts in 1981, opening for the 4-Skins. After that they quickly became one of the bigger groups on the UK Oi! scene. This absolute stone cold Oi! clasic includes the Indie Chart hit singles 'Harry May' and 'Smash The Discos' plus the anthemic 'Loud Proud N Punk'.

CAREER SUICIDE "machine response" (Statick Shock) - 16.50€
Writhing, sneering, tight cornered, "Machine Response" the only acceptable follow up to the blistering and landmark "Attempted Suicide." Nearly ten years of beating around the bush, casually playing around the world and drip releasing music along the way, Career Suicide is backed by their best lineup ever, ready to break back through themselves with this new full length. Machine Response veers in and out of pure speed, bursts of melody, and chunky tempo shifts, indenting the long standing influence of early 80s USHC, late 70s punk, and a peppering of 60s swagger, with their own clearly developed style. Dallas Good (Sadies, Andre Williams, John Doe, Half Japanese, Elevator and a million more) presents a magnificently essential 2nd guitar and lead presence; a screaming contribution by great friend and long time supporter of the band, Souichi Hisatake, (Forward, GISM, Insane Youth, Gudon etc) to crack your brain up; artwork in collaboration with Ryan Tong of S.H.I.T. and Toronto's life-giving Faith/Void; and a thundering recording, once again helmed by the decorated and limitless in his pursuit of smooth hearing loss, Jon Drew, provide the most damaging clarity Career Suicide have been able to capture to date.

CHAIN CULT - st (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 14€
Πρώτα κυκλοφόρησε σε κασέτα στην αρχή της χρονιάς και εξαφανίστηκε μέσα σε λίγες μέρες, τώρα επανακυκλοφορεί σε βινύλιο από την Αγγλική La Vida En Us Mus. Οι Chain Cult είναι ένα τρίο από την Αθήνα με μέλη από μπάντες όπως οι Conspiracy Of Denial, Dirty Wombs, Lifewreck, Αρχή Του Τέλους κ.α. Μουσικά είναι κάτι ανάμεσα στους The Estranged και τους Joy Division.

CRISIS "kollectiv" (La Vida Es Un Mus) 2x LP - 21€
For the first time ever, the three Crisis singles are officially re-released on Vinyl along with demos from 77 and 78 and a simply stunning sounding live set from Norway in 1979.  The debut 7" from 1978 on Action Group Records, 'No Town Hall'  features three stonewall punk classics. The next two singles 'UK79' and 'Alienation' make up the four tracks recorded for a John Peel Session in 1978. The lyrics are a product of the time against a backdrop of street fights with the National Front, violence at gigs, institutional racism within the police force, class division, industrial strife, sexual repression… Upon reflection not much has really changed in the last 35 years! Also included are demo tracks from 1977 and 1978 which are raw and basic punk just as you would expect. They have never been officially released on vinyl before. Sides Three and Four features a live set recorded when Crisis played Norway in 1979 which features all of the material that later turned up on ‘Hymns Of Faith’. The sound quality of the recording is so good it would pass as a studio recording.
The record comes housed in a tip on heavyweight sleeve with detailed liner notes, reviews, interviews, and a few unseen group photos. The sleeve picture taken in Kiev in 2012 couldn't be more relevant, capturing the Zeitgeist - which was part of what Punk was all about in the first place.

COCK SPARRER "forever" (Pirates Press/Randale/Chase The Ace) - 17€
For many, this band needs no introduction, as they are indeed legends in a vibrant scene stretching across the world. At the same time, for anyone not part of that category, they are far-and-away the best band that you've not heard yet. This full length, their sixth, in 45 years as a band, truly exemplifies how incredible and how special this band is.
Rather than follow the all-too-common trajectory of releasing a new full length every few years, and following it up with tour after tour, sparrer really remained selective with the new music they've chosen to release, and the gigs they are willing to play – and for many people, that is what really sets them apart. There is no ‘fluff’ - ever!
All of their albums are classics, and this one is soon-to-be as well. Hit after hit, hook after hook, sing-along after sing-along and jam packed with substance, “Forever" is an album that will be treasured by hundreds of thousands of fans for decades to come.
One would assume that this is the last full length that we will see from these legends; and a fitting one it is indeed. These best-of-friends wear their hearts on their sleeves, and bring an intensity and emotional component to everything that they do – whether it is recording new tracks, or getting on stage to thoroughly impress thousands of fans with their incomparable and truly spectacular live performances. This album does nothing short of illustrate that perfectly. 180gr black vinyl.

CRUTCHES "såld" (Distro-y Records)- 14€ (Colour vinyl)

Having in taken a short break in between jet setting between DIY venues throughout the world. CRUTCHES have laid out 11 new tracks of raw unrelenting swedish d-takt which follows the aftermath of the 2015 LP ‘FörlOrAD’. Såld sees CRUTCHES bolster up their line up with Eddie on guitar who joined the ranks in the wake of the last release. The enforced CRUTCHES run amok amidst a thunderous barrage of drums and wild guitars kicked into overdrive to create maximum noise. With socio-political lyrics snapping at what is perceived normality and forever mangeling towards freedom.
Recorded by CRUTCHES in the Nidis at Norragränges, February-March 2017 and mixed & mastered by Matte PSCELERIS PRODUCTIONS the 666 vinyl pressing will be housed in artwork by legendary punk artist Stiv.

CRUCIFIX "nineteen eighty four" (Corpus Christi) - 15€

Classic stuff here: Crucifix 12" EP 1981, Nineteen Eighty-Four 7" EP 1982 + two songs from  "Not So Quiet On The Western Front" 2xLP Comp. 1982 and The "Rat Music For Rat People" LP Comp. 1982. Printed black and white insert on glossy 2x2, with pictures, lyrics and liner notes.

DEATH RIDGE BOYS "right side of history" (Black Water) - 19€
US Import. "right side of history" deliver 7 tracks of hard-hitting anti-nazi oi! played by Portland punk vets. These guys have been around the block a few times having played in bands like CRIMINAL DAMAGE, TALK IS POISON, TRAGEDY etc. so you can be sure they know how to write a song. Music with a message, equal parts passion and political with intelligent lyrics and catchy riffs that are sure to get stuck in your head. This is a one-time vinyl pressing of 500 copies on colored, 180gr vinyl with lyric sheet and poster.

DEATH SIDE "wasted dream" (Fan Club) - 15€
The mighty Death Side, my favorite - together with Bastard - hardcore band to ever come out of Japan. Originally released on Selfish Records in 1989. One of the best hardcore records ever.

DISCLOSE "tragedy" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16.50€
180 Gram record housed in a paste on board sleeve. Indiscriminate cruelty to common people: the slogan could be about war or it could be about your eardrums while listening to 'Tragedy.' Disclose's first LP is a landmark of cacophonous, guitar-forward noisy hardcore. Heavily influenced by classic 80s Swedish raw punk, these fifteen songs perfect the unrelenting formula as only Kawakami could. Originally released in Japan on the cult label Overthrow in 1994, this reissue restores the fierce original mix two decades later. It differs from the mix on later represses hailing from Uppsala, where Swedish bombshelter-dwellers keep the flame alive. This authorized reissue reproduces the original artwork, with insert. Crack your brain up!

ENZYME "howling mind" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
After two 7"s on Crust War and Hardcore Victim and a Tour flexi in Japan on Vox Populi Records, Australian noise-punx Enzyme release their debut 10 track debut album. The band made up of ex members of Pisschrist, Kromosom and Unknown to Gods worship at the alter of Perdition era Disorder, Chaos UK and Confuse. The bass drives the sound, the drums hectic with a lot of rolling tom tom work whilst the guitar has an immense tone of buzzing distortion and flanged psychedelics. Get ready to pogo!

EXIT ORDER "seed of hysteria" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 15€
Following a fantastic demo in 2013 and a flawless 7” EP in 2015 Boston’s EXIT ORDER finally grace us with a long waiting debut 12”. Seed Of Hysteria is made up out of 10 perfect hardcore punk songs. With one boot firmly stuck on the Bristol punk sound of the golden era and with nods to early USA Hardcore and prime UK Peace-Punk Seed Of Hysteria is an all out sonic assault. Using the best elements of the last 30 years of international hardcore punk and turning them into short sharp bursts of energy. Heavy on the guitar chorus and with a extremely sharp vocal deliverance reminding at times of No Side era COMES the record flows with urgency and aggression. You’ll have to dig hard to find a punk record as tough and tight as Seeds Of Hysteria.
The record comes in a heavy reverse board monochromatic sleeve with a double sided 22”x11” which doubles as poster and lyric sheet. Released by Side Two label in USA and LVEUM in Europe.

EXPLOITED "troops of tomorrow" (Restless Empire) - 16€
In the early '80s, British punk took a turn toward hardcore and the Exploited (along with G.B.H, Disorder, etc.) led the charge. The beat was fast and furious, the politics ferocious, and the magenta mohawk became state of the art. This album is blessed with great production, something many hardcore albums lack, meaning the froth and fury don't come across as a total muddle. Moreover, the machine gun beat comes with hooks that leave you humming along with the tunes. Big John was a decent guitarist and his fireball leads add spice to the mix. Highlights here are "Disorder," "Alternative," "U.S.A." and the title track (penned by the Vibrators). The album is as much a glimpse of the gutter politics of the U.K. under Maggie Thatcher, giving voice to frustration and emptiness of a generation of street kids who looked on the waning empire and saw themselves left out. It's raw, loud, and a downright classic. This is a crucial album in the evolution of The Exploited. The opening track is enough anarchic assault on the ears to make any punk fan realize these guy's meant buisness! It is altogether a solid album, guitar is great, the drums are loud and fast and the vox are pist. This album is a classic and more than half the songs are more than note worthy ("Sid Vicious Was Innocent", "Jimmy Boyle", Troops Of Tomorrow", "F--- The U.S.A." and "Alternative" are the best!!). "but don't take my word for it"

FATAMORGANA "terra alta" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 17€
Formed in Barcelona in the summer of 2017, Fatamorgana sprang to life from the hearts and minds of Patrycja Anna Proniewska and Louis Harding. What began as a bedroom project of sorts (monophonic synthesisers, 4-track cassette recordings) the project soon blossomed into a functional live unit. Following a self-released cassette single at the start of the year, the pair spent the latter part of 2018 touring continental Europe and the west coast of North America.
Recorded at Holyrook Estudio in Barcelona, Terra Alta is the group's first full-length effort. The verse-chorus songwriting, the raw set-up of 2-synths-and-a-beat, and the primal rhythms nod to the duo's background in punk. But Terra Alta has a pensive and mesmeric quality, provided in part by an outstanding production job (Studio AS One, Warsaw), but also by lyrics concerning themselves with themes of love, time travel, reflections on the future, the power of imagination and the mysteries of the natural world. If pressed for musical references the band could be pin-pointed somewhere between early DEPECHE MODE, YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS, THE HUMAN LEAGUE and a rounder around the edges BORGHESIA.
Dreamlike synthesisers and echoed voices circle around danceable rhythms, inviting you to simultaneously contemplate and move your body. Allow yourself to be teleported from the majesty of Nature, to the glow of the discotheque.

FRAMTID "under the ashes" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
An absolutely over the top recording comprising twelve tracks of punishing hardcore with a huge wall-of-noize production adding to their faultless song writing. As noisy as the album is, all the songs are hits and hard to forget. 'The Total Arse', 'Tomorrow' and 'Consuming Shit and Mind Pollution' are what the new generation of noize-not-music punk lack, memorable anthems. Housed in a 350 gsm regular sleeve and without alterations to the art or sound from the original, this reissue tries to bring an undoubtedly classic of our generation back to life.

G.B.H. "leather, bristles, studs and acne" (Let Them Eat Vinyl) - 16€ (Red Vinyl)
Here's an official vinyl reissue of the monumental 1981 release 'Leather, Bristles, Studs and Acne' by legendary English punks (Charged) G.B.H.! Includes the Leather, Bristles, Studs And Acne 12" plus the No Survivors 7" and the Sick Boy 7". Gatefold sleeve.

G.I.S.M. "human condition" (Japcoreofan) - 15€
Without a single doubt the best Gism bootleg ever made. Combines all compilations tracks with listenable unreleased live stuff and come in great packaging with poster sleeve with full release info, sleeves, reviews etc. Amazing amount off effort has gone into this. Not sure how many copies of these are around, but its certainly not as rare as the other bootleg, so it shouldnt be too hard too find and its the best starting of any Gism collection (unless you´d wanna hunt down the originals ofcourse :-).

GLORIOUS? "who are they to impose restrictions?" (Adult Crash) - 14€
Debut 12" from this band out of Malmö. Playing straight-on d-beat, Glorious? actually have a pretty interesting sound that combines a few different elements of the Discharge template, kind of melding different elements from throughout Discharge's discography. The double-tracked vocals sound almost exactly like Realities of War, but the music is both heavier a la Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing and riff-ier and more metallic a la Why? or even early Broken Bones. It's almost kind of a shame that Glorious? sound so much like Discharge in places, because they strike me as much more than a simple d-beat band... these songs are dense, complex, and dynamic, far more than just Discharge riffs copied and slightly rearranged. Though the overall vibe is a bit different, they have a Totalitär-esque way of making fairly straightforward riffs seem weighty and important. A year or so ago I would have told you that d-beat was the deadest of horses, but between bands like Glorious? and Paranoid the genre feels totally revivified. Definitely recommended!

GUTTER KNIFE "boots on the ground" (Quality Control) - 16.50€
"The chalky white and golden brown of the rows and rows of houses, sodden from an eternity of days on the Brighton seaside. The disconnected punctuation of hobnail boots on wet tarmac. Hardcore punk, handed the UK82 marching orders and sent to the frontlines of the war 86 Mentality started, with Arms Race and Violent Reaction keeping the home fires burning. The same grey walls inside which you can redefine and rebuild. The NOW Wave of British Hardcore.
Wide and crooked vocals over riffs that move in and out of the speed and aggression of early HC and the inclination to get drunk and grab someone. Not quite a pogo, yet not quite a slam, with finer clobber and and the necessary swagger. Like a knife, but from the gutter."
Jonah Falco, Fucked Up/Career Suicide.

J.F.A. "valley of the yakes" (No Futuro) - 15€
JFA (short for Jody Fosters Army) formed in the deserts of Phoenix Arizona in 1981. Four skateboarders got together and decided they wanted to form a band after being inspired by seeing DOA play a show that same year. The band’s goal was to play fast and skate, and that is what they did. They didn’t even bother releasing a demo, the first thing they went and recorded was their now legendary Blatant Localism 7″ on Placebo Records. They followed up the 7″ with the amazing Valley of the Yakes LPin 1983 that saw them become more polished and mixed hardcore with surf sounds. LP includes insert.


JOY DIVISION "live at the paradiso club, amsterdam 1980" (Fan Club) - 15€
Of the few live Joy Division recordings that exist out there, this is easily one of the best. The set was recorded on January 11, 1980 at Amsterdam's Paradiso Club, apparently to just a handful of dedicated fans. Despite the low turnout, the fans who did make it out were rewarded with an incredible 70-minute set containing many Joy Division favorites performed all the way live with a raw energy you must hear to believe. Check the intensity on the live versions of tracks like "Transmission," "Digital," and "Disorder," plus "A Means To An End," "These Days," and the timeless "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Pressed on 140g clear vinyl and limited to 500 copies only! Recommended.


KAAOS "ristiinnaulittu kaaos" (Havoc) - 15€
This killer LP was originally released by Barrabas Records in Finland in 1984. Fight and Havoc continuing treir long-standing partnership to re-issue classics of Finnish hardcore teamed up to re-press this classic. Kaaos were one of the foremost Finnish hardcore bands of the 80s along with Rattus, Terveet Kadet, Appendix, Bastards and Riistetyt. Kaaos has the trademark Finnish 80s sound, fast buzzsaw thrash riffs, reverby vocals, all over the placedrumming, and plodding bass. This repress has reproduced the original Crass style poster sleeve and contains three bonus tracks not on the original.


LOS CRUDOS "discografía" (La Vida Es Un Mus) 2x LP - 21€
Finally a European version of the long overdue LOS CRUDOS Discography collection. LOS CRUDOS, formed in Chicago's Pilsen neighbourhood in the early 90's, are a Latino punk band with a strong socio-political message and an extremely militant DIY attitude. During their first incarnation, spanning the years 1991 to 1998 the band self-released their own records, printed their own merch, booked their own shows and toured relentlessly around the world. From South America to Japan including a 3 month European tour in the winter of 1996. They spoke to the freaks the outsiders and the minorities and were not afraid of confronting the white middle class punk who reigned supreme during the terrible 90's. A time which will not be remembered for their hardcore output except for a few exceptions, in which CRUDOS are surely included. Their sound, far from being a copycat of whatever flavour of the month was reigning at the time was heavy rooted in the golden years of European and Latino American ferocious hardcore punk. With bands as IMPACT, WRETCHED, OLHO SECO, TERVEET KADET or MASACRE 68 as obvious influences in a time when the simple mention of any of those bands (or any non English speaking bands really) was usually met with a laugh or a joke. They sang in Spanish, with aggression and conviction and that made their message spread out widely, reaching thousands of Spanish speaking punks both in Latino America and Spain as well as inside USA where third generation Latino kids surely were missing a voice within the punk scene. The band split up in 1998 after a really intense year of touring and reformed in 2008. The band will be undertaking their first ever Scandinavian tour in July/ Agust 2016.
This collection, originally released as a benefit for MRR magazine last year, includes all the LOS CRUDOS output plus compilation tracks as well as a couple demo tracks and an unreleased song. The European version comes in a gatefold sleeve and brings a 40 page booklet with flyers and the lyrics of all songs.

MARTYRDöD "in extremis" (Havoc) - 15€
Martyrdöd unleash intense raw Swedish hardcore with some Black Metal influences. Ultra powerful metallic käng that drags you into a world of darkness, anger and despair. This band released a crushing LP on Plague Bearer and a split 7" with Sunday Morning Einsteins. Guitarist Micke went on to play in Skitsystem. This band has a distinct style within the strong tradition of Swedish hardcore. The riffs are raw and powerful, with haunting melody over a storm of raw sonic shrapnel. Two guitars trade off sledgehammer riffs and driving melodic leads. The vocals are searing and raw shouts of rage against the horror of 21st century industrial terror and war. This LP is a titanic blast of raw käng power.

MAU MAUS "society's rejects" (Sealed) - 17€
Named after the 1950's secret political action from Kenya, and inspired by a U.S. Hardcore act of the same name, Sheffield's Mau Maus formed after leaving school in late '79. They made their live debut in 1981 supporting the Angelic Upstarts, apparently on the proviso that they dropped their abysmal rendition of 'Liddle Towers'. They started gigging in London in 1982 and played with such luminaries as the Upstarts, Urban Dogs and Dead Kennedys. Signing to Marcus Featherby's Pax Records they recorded and released a handful of punchy, fast-moving EP's that saw them achieve considerable success in punk circles, and in 1983 they went on tour with Pax labelmates The Exploited. Unfortunately, at the end of the tour bassist Bunny collapsed on stage and was later diagnosed with cancer. They carried on with a new bassist and started their own label, Rebellion, releasing another single (Tear Down The Walls E.P.) and finally their debut studio LP, Fear No Evil (they actually made their LP debut in 1983 with Live At The Marples). Popularity now on the wane, their last recording saw the addition of a second guitarist and the return of Bunny. Nowhere To Run did nothing and, in 1986, they packed it in. LP compiling their singles.

MODERN LIFE IS WAR "fever hunting" (Deathwish) - 16€
Modern Life Is War are one of the most beloved bands in the punk rock/hardcore world of the last decade, appealing to everyone from the jaded to the driven. The band released three highly influential albums before announcing a temporary hiatus in 2007.
"Fever Hunting" is Modern Life is War's triumphant 2013 return to form with original lineup of Chris Honeck, Matt Hoffman, Jeffrey Eaton, Tyler Oleson and John Eich. A true story of their coming of age, "Fever Hunting" plays as an open diary of their last five years. Exposing every frayed nerve that it's creators carried deep within their hearts.
From the first strikes of the opener "Old Fears, New Frontiers" it's apparent that Modern Life Is War have not lost a step in absence, but have quickened pace on their own path. From there, the outpouring is overwhelming as eleven songs unfurl with equal and unmatched emotional weight. All of them bravely moving forward rather than resting on past laurels. Recorded by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge) and mastered by Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise).

THE NUMBER ONES - st (Static Shock) - 14€
The Number Ones will take you to power pop heaven with their razor sharp 10 track self titled debut album. They are a Dublin based four-piece featuring members of Cian Nugent and The Cosmos (Matador / No Quarter), Cheap Freaks (Big Neck), Strong Boys (Milk Run), and The Pacifics (Bachelor). Even though they are based in Dublin, they sound like a classic Good Vibrations band from 1979. The Number Ones have energy, passion and tunes so good, it makes you think you've heard them already. Each track is a golden nugget of power pop fun that never outlasts it's welcome as every track is under three minutes. Although this sort of music seems to have been done a million times before, it sounds fresh in the hands of The Number Ones. This is pure summer fun for fans of Rudi, Protex, Exploding Hearts, Buzzcocks and The Tranzmitors.

PARANOID "satyagraha" (Southern Lord) - 16€
With so many bands taking up the d-beat mantle over the past few years you would think that the potential for real innovation within the genre would be drying up. However, Paranoid are proof positive that there is still life left in the d-beat formula. Basically, Paranoid keep from boring us all by adding a significant dose of metal to the equation... the rhythm guitars are built around this claustrophobic, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost-esque guitar sound, and the arrangements are filled out with really inspired lead guitar playing. Like classic "burning spirits" style Japanese bands, the metallic influence lends a sense of grandiosity to the music as well as the potential for much more complex, interesting melodies, but Paranoid pull off the rarely-accomplished trick of fusing these more musically ambitious metal influences with the intensity--even wildness--of classic Swedish d-beat. Basically, unless I'm forgetting something this is by leaps and bounds the d-beat release of the year, and Paranoid are one of the few bands pushing the genre in new and interesting directions while maintaining a sense of authenticity. Highly recommended, and an essential purchase for the forward-thinking modern d-beat warrior.

PARTISANS - st (Beat Generation) - 16.50€
Replica re-issue of the cover and artwork. 180 g black vinyl. Seminal record for any punk in UK, China or whatever you live, fucker!!!! The Partisans were formed in Wales south in 1978 with the original line-up of Phil Staton-voice, Rob "Spike" Harrington-guitar and backing vocals, Andy Lealand-second guitar, Mark "Shark" Harris-drums and Mark "Savage" Parsons-bass. This line-up will change after one year as Parsons and Staton left the band and Rob took the voice position and entering Louise Wright as bass player. Basically influenced by Sex Pistols, The Clash and Ramones, The Partisans started to cover those bands and playing some own sounds too. On September 1981 they released their first 7" under the label No Future Records, a fantastic single that helped the band to tour with the likes of Blitz, The Ejected and Peter and the Test Tube Babies. On May 1982 they released their second 7" and when 1983 arrived the band's debut LP was out. This debut LP is one of the seminal steps on British punk for sure, a record that still sound fresh and strong after 3o years. Beat Generation is more than proud to announce the re-issue of this legendary record on 180 grams vinyl with the same cover and inside artwork and stricted limited to 500 copies.

PEACH KELLI POP "gentle leader" (Bachelor) - 16€
L.A.’s DIY sunshine punk favorites Peach Kelli Pop are back with Gentle Leader, the band’s 4th full length album and first in three years. Gentle Leader is a departure for Peach Kelli Pop’s founder, Allie Hanlon, demonstrating growth and a new confidence as a musician and songwriter. Following close on the tails of the band's recent EP, Which Witch, their first with renowned Canadian indie pop label Mint Records, the album captures the band at a crossroads exploring new ideas and complexity while maintaining their colorful energy.Gentle Leader’s 10 tracks are inspired by a unique range of guitar driven power pop and feedback laden post-punk from the 80’s and 90’s. Unlike the band's past releases which were almost entirely written, recorded and produced by Hanlon, Gentle Leader is a collaborative effort. Hanlon shared production duties with engineer Roland Cosio who also played guitar on some of the songs. Sophie Negrini is also featured
on guitar, while Andrew Bassett of Portland’s party-punk band The Mean Jeans provided the drumming. Gina Negrini, the band's bassist, contributed the song “Quiet” to the album. This new collaborative spirit works well, highlighting the strengths of each performer and creating a more sophisticated record without sacrificing Hanlon’s distinct vision.Gentle Leader frequently jumps from distortion and hyperactivity into soft harmonies and tangible vulnerability. The exhilarating “Hello Kitty Knife” kicks the album off with a giddy urgency. Things take a turn with an intimate take on the UK indie-pop classic “Honey” by The Marine Girls. The unembellished vocals and shimmering guitars reflect the spirit of the 80s' DIY underground and are brought to light by the production values reminiscent of an early Violent Femmes album. “Black Magic” transports the listener to the moment one first realizes their relationship will soon end, capturing the distinct feeling of heartbreak and angst with its disorienting buzz saw guitar. The dreamy “Parasomnia” is hazy doo-wop drenched in layers of warped vintage Casio synth tones with Hanlon singing solemnly about the inconvenience of obsessive desire. Like a collection of short stories, each of the 10 tracks on Gentle Leader possesses its own background, narrative and unique charm.Further evidence of the band’s evolution, Hanlon opted to retire the the classic layout featured on the band’s previous album covers. Gentle Leader features a fantastical illustration by Brooklyn artist Miza Coplin that captures the animated, abstract and vibrant world in which Peach Kelli Pop exists. Like an entry point to that world, lyrical references and themes from songs on Gentle Leader can be found in Coplin’s artwork.

PETER & THE TEST TUBE BABIES "loud blaring punk rock" (Radiation) - 15€
The fourth full-length by the UK punk legends, originally released in 1985, sees a reissue on vinyl! This one is the epitome of childish, unrefined and perfect punk rock and roll. With such deep, poetic titles as 'We're Too Drunk', 'Pick Yer Nose (And Eat It)' or 'Beat Up The Mods', you know what you're getting!

PLANET Y "kniven for struben" (Adult Crash) - 14€
Catchy Copenhagen Punk Rock inspired by Scandinavian 70’s melancholia and with hints of early West Coast punk rock melodies. This is a beacon in a grey-on-grey city!

PURE HELL "noise addiction" (Beat Generation) – 16.50€
Beat Generation presents a reissue of Pure Hell sole full-length album, recorded in 1978 but not released until 2006. In 1974, on the streets of Philadelphia, a band unlike any other was formed. They called themselves Pretty Poison. They had a sound so ahead of its time that the music industry was not yet ready for it. They coupled the punk sound of the New York bands of the time with a harder, faster heavy metal edge unheard before. Their unique sound was a result of Kenny Gordon's berserk choreography and Preston Morris's needling guitar riffs, while Steel and Spider added synchronized barrage with no nonsense execution to the arsenal. Inspired by the famous fuel-altered dragster, they changed their name to Pure Hell in 1975. Soon after, they moved to New York City where they played with bands like the New York Dolls, Sid Vicious, Wayne County and the Electric Chairs, The Dead Boys, The Stimulators, Richard Hell, The Germs, The Nuns, The Cramps and more. In 1978 Pure Hell headlined a tour of the UK, with bands like the UK Subs, Wilko Johnson, Vermilion & the Aces and more opening for them. While in the UK, their only original record was released. It was a single released by their manager Curtis Knight on his label, Golden Sphinx Records. The songs on the single were "These Boots Were Made for Walking" and "No Rules." The single charted in the top 40 charts in the UK. During the same year, a full length album was recorded but was never released. It did not surface again for 28 years. Limited edition of 500 copies.

RAKTA "falha comum" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 17€
With a slight line up change in the drum department we see RAKTA tighten up their more tense, soundtrack natured developments alongside their more sparse and vulnerable elegance. They consistently manage to create a tripped out creep chamber with room to explore as the aura builds to nightmare crescendos juxtaposed with shaking silences. Simultaneously eerie and serene. With each new release we see more and more of what makes this group so essential in the canon of modern music.
300 copies on black vinyl and 100 on bone colour vinyl housed in a beautiful printed inner sleeve inside a heavy duty reversible cover with a vellum insert. Recorded by Fernando Sanchez. Mastered by James Plotkin. Art by André Penteado, Karlla Giratto and Rakta.

RESISTANCE 77 "thoroughbred men" (Radiation) - 15€
Making its deserved, yet first ever return to vinyl, it's the 1984 full-length by the acclaimed Oi! unit from Nottingham. 'Thoroughbred Men' is a smoking, somewhat obscure piece of UK street punk history!

RIXE "collection" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 15€
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.


S.H.I.T. "complete S.H.I.T." (La Vida En Us Mus) - 16€
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 Es Un Mus/ Iron Lung) - 16€
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.


SEPTIC DEATH "theme from ozobozo" (Toy's Facory) - 15€
Septic Death's Theme From Ozobozo was a Japanese only CD released in 1992. This is repress of that cd, including the Pushead cover art and insert.

TRAITRE "discographie" (UVPR / LADA / LCDE) LP + EP - 15€
If you’ve never heard of Traitre, here’s your chance to have a listen to one of the best melancholico-Oi! band from Lille in France. These guys have been important in the French punk oi! scene in the past 5 years. All their records have been sold out very quickly, even with a very DIY distribution (most of them were originally available mainly at their concerts and sold on "name you price" standart). This complete collection gathers their 3 EPs, the maxi 12", the tracks on compilations and their tape as bonus on the 7" EP, 18 σονγσ ιν τοταλ.  Include inner sleeve and silkscreen print poster.

UK SUBS "endangered species" (Beat Generation) - 16€
Originally released in 1982, the U.K. Subs fourth studio album is considered by many of the band's fans their finest moments, and there's many reasons why it could very well be: the record's powerful sound (courtesy of the production of the Subs own Nicky Garratt) made justice to a band on top of their game, recording some of the best songs of their career.

THE VIOLATORS "the no future years" (Mad Butcher) - 15€
Here's another classic from the early 80's. 'The Violators' was formed in 1981 in New Mills, England and it was a mixture of punks and skins in their line up. In their beiginnings the band sounded very similar to 'Vice Squad' and 'The Expelled'. The band made their debut on the 'A Country Fit For Heroes' 12" in 1981 by 'No Future Records'. The following year they released their first EP titled 'Gangland' followed by 'Summer of 81' in 1982 again by No Future. Few weeks after the release of their second EP, vocalist Helen and guitarrist Coley splited from the band to form their own band call Taboo, but never issued any singles. Meanwhile The Violators have recruited a new vocalist called Louise and guitarist Andy who was formally with "Skin Graft". The second generation of The Violators changed their sound. This time with heavier vocals and songs. The band always kept their clockwork sound, which they are known for. Violators released a few more singles, but never a full length. The band split up in the mid 80's, and marked history with their clockwork images and noises in the punk culture. Mad Butcher Records managed to get the tracks from all of their singles and compilations they appeared and relesead this fantastic LP.

Made up of people responsible for bands like NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, HJERTESTOP, and many more K-town classic hardcore bands. 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. Classy moody danish punk rock.

The music can we described as melodic and melancholic punk sung in French but it's much more than that in many ways. ZONE INFINIE is ZONE INFINIE and nothing else, that's why we love them so much. Their lyrics are inventive, touching and they will be carved in your head from the first listening. Comes with a great artwork by talented artist Yvan Brun.

ANARCHUS “final fall of the gods (extended)” (F.O.A.D.) - 18
(Diehard splatter vinyl limited to 100 copies) 
“Final fall of the gods” was the first vinyl output by Mexico’s finest Grindcore terrorists, ANARCHUS.  It originally came out in 1990 released by Rigid Records (that was also responsible for delivering early efforts by bands like ASSÜCK, G-ANX, AGATHOCLES etc…) and it was mixed at Morrisound Studio by the legend, Scott Burns.

BAD BRAINS “rock for light” (Caroline) – 13€
This is the classic album from 1982. Virtually everyone agrees that this group made up of 4 DC African American. They radically quickened punk's tempos, added virtuoso instrumentation, and topped it all off with the mystic squeals of frontman Paul "H.R." Hudson. This release gives voice to the band's scathing sociopolitical judgment as well as its ability to simply put the hammer down and rock. It also allows the rhythm section of Darryl Jenifer and Earl Hudson to flex their muscle on a smattering of dub-reggae interludes that help lull the unsuspecting into the right frame of mind for the next hardcore punch.

THE EXECUTE ‎"greatest punk hits" (D.O.A) - 20€
US Import. The Execute were a Japanese hardcore punk band one of the earliest example of punk changing into hardcore punk in Japan. Formed in 1982 in Tokyo and made according to eye witness notorious shows. They took cues from diverse influences such as Japan’s early punkers the SS and the galloping metal of Motörhead.
They released several 7″s and appeared on a couple of classic Japanese complitions, “Great Punk Hits” and later “A Farewell To Arms”. They also were on a few other international compilations. All their records, including the “Hardcore Temptation” 7″, the “Criminal Flowers” 7″ and the “Blunt Sleazy” 7″/12″ are excellent. There was also a cassette release in 1984 called “Live in Hell”.
In late 1985, line up changes in the band, including Baby and later Baki forming/joining Gastunk, changed Execute’s sound to be more post-punk/goth rock influenced. Pusmort records re-released the “Blunt Sleazy” record as a split 12″ with Germany’s Inferno and there was also a legitimate discography LP called “Save Your Money” with all their early material and some unreleased live material from 1982.
This LP is very rare fanclub collection from Japan's THE EXECUTE. 26 tracks collected from their first 7" flexi, "Hardcore Temptation 7", outtakes from the first flexi sessions, and 2 tracks from the "Live in Hell" tape from 1982. Comes with insert, liimited to 198 copies.

FREDAG DEN 13:E "dystopisk utsikt" (Alerta Antifascista) - 13
On their 4th full-length LP, we find FREDAG DEN 13:E continuing to steamroller on with a musical formula that borrows equally from the rock 'n' roll riff workshop of POISON IDEA as well as Swedish crushing d-beat adding in epic Gothenburg melodious metallic flares. Thick 180gr vinyl comes housed in a gatefold-cover, includes a poster and a digital download card.

THE GUESTS "popular music" (Sabotage)- 14€ 
Popular Music, the new album by Philadelphia new wave act The Guests, because the songs are just so damn pleasant. The band knows this. That’s why they’ve put their politics front and center, making it all almost impossible to ignore. You can hear this in their lyrics, with songs like, “Kicked and Punched, Rounded Up, and Stunned” and “Watching the War” driving home the band’s anti-capitalist, populist platform.
Despite having formed in late 2014, this is The Guests’ first full length release, following two cassettes and a European-pressed record collecting the songs from the tapes.
Musically the band sounds similarly to British synth-pop pioneers Heaven 17 or Disintegration-era Cure: think bold, fun synthesizer and guitar lines backed up by very catchy, machine-like drums and bass. This is music that makes you want to dance. But can the music exist apart from the politics? Asked about that, Meimaris said, “We hope that people can enjoy the music independently. But we have the knowledge that the music and the politics can never be pulled completely apart at the end of the day. The music is a sugar pill that helps the medicine of our politics go down.”

HIS HERO IS GONE "fifteen counts of arson" (Prank) - 18€ 
Memphis, Tennessee’s HIS HERO IS GONE ’s debut album. An explosive charge of Crust hardcore, emotive, somber riffs, throttling blasting drums and unpredictable, intense song writing with harsh vocals spitting intense, to the point lyrics. The original Line up of HIS HERO IS GONE would practice incessantly, tour nonstop, writing and defining their unique sound that drew disparate clues from the band members earlier bands: MAN WITH GUN LIVES HERE, FACE DOWN and COPOUT, but seeped deeper in fandom, absorption and adaptation of parts of classic SXE, emergent Power violence, 90’s European Dbeat Hardcore and underground metal. This Classic album was recorded mid tour in 1996 at Polymorph studios, a wedged together studio that produced many great underground records before the neighborhood succumbed to gentrification and it was turned into a small batch ice creamery. This is it’s first pressing since 2011, 472 pressed from the original plates at RTI record technology. This will not be repressed again this year.

INDIAN NIGHTMARE "taking back the land" (Dying Victims Productions / Plastic Bomb) - 15€ (White Vinyl)
Second pressing of their killer debut LP in collaboration with Dying Victims Prod.! International punks based in Berlin worshipping speed/thrash metal!
INDIAN NIGHTMARE was originally created in the spring of 2014 as Poison (Mexico) and Dodi (Indonesia) decided to form a powerful band with lifeblood to combine the furious soul of punk with the rawest form of early metal to live for METAL PUNK and to die. Half a year later and after a few changes in the line up, the band was finally complete under the name INDIAN NIGHTMARE.
With Cedro (Italy) on bass, Lalo (Italy, ex-MINKIONS) on drums and Butch (Turkey) on guitar, there was nothing to stand in the way of the numerous live rituals that followed. Absolutely authentic and spectacular shows quickly made the band famous in the Berlin area! Due to the different countries of origin and the more than 10-15 years of experience that everyone brings with them, a completely unique sound and a stage performance with influences from all over the world was created, which is probably unique in the underground. Absolute recommendation for fans of Japanese punk, GISM, DEATHSIDE, GHOUL (jap), English Crustpunk, early Speed ​​Metal, DISCHARGE, AMEBIX, MOTORHEAD etc.

KIDNAP
"Il faudra bien qu'un jour tout change" (Euthanasie) - 15€
The group was initially formed in 1977 under the name of Steel, one of the most famous events with their participation took place in 1984 on Chaos Festival which shows a real split between punks and nazi skinheads; the band decides to play his song No SS, which was the cause of riots among the audience.

LOW CULTURE "screens" (Dirtnap) - 14€
Scrappy, melodic garagepunk from Las Cruces, NM. Members of The Marked Men and Shang-A-Lang. In late 2011, when it was clear that Shang-A-Lang was coming to an end, Chris asked Sam and Cade (of Total Jock) if they wanted to start a new band. Low Culture practiced a few times as a three-piece, but a few weeks later Joe (Marked Men/Shang-A-Lang) moved back to Las Cruces and joined the band. Low Culture’s first show was in early November 2011 was at Shang-A-Lang’s last show and the band's been moving full steam ahead ever since. With a few short regional trips and a tour of the Northeast and Canada with Iron Chic in support of their debut 7" under their belt, they're showing no signs of slowing down. A European tour is in the works for March of 2013 as well as many US dates as their work schedules will allow. Low Culture plays catchy garage punk that while not far removed from some of the member's previous project, Shang-A-Lang, has a lot less emphasis on riffs and blown out recordings, and more emphasis on melody and crisp (while not necessarily “over-produced”) recordings. Produced by Mark Ryan (Marked Men/Mind Spiders) in Fort Worth, mastered by Dave Williams (Crusades, Steve Adamyk Band) in Ottawa. This is their debut LP, with the promise of more to come.

WAR//PLAGUE "into the depths" (Phobia) - 14€
Minneapolis veteran punks are at it again! This 10 track album will mark the bands 10 year anniversary. “Into the Depths” directly reflects the bands rage and anger against a world that has turned its back on itself. Features members of TAU CROSS, PROVOKED, PONTIUS PILATE, FLUX OF DISORDER, CALLOUSED and PATH OF DESTRUCTION.
"Dark, brooding metallic crust punk is what Minneapolis’s War//Plague are all about, bringing to mind such bands as Amebix, Axegrinder, Deviated Instinct, Extinction Of Mankind and fellow Minneapolis crusties Misery – a sound that is as every inch as dark and grim as the images the band’s name and the intro and outro to their debut album ‘On A Darker Dawn’ of swarming flies conjures up, and as harsh and abrasive as a long Minnesota winter.
The band mix up doomy and darkly atmospheric clean guitar driven passages and chugging mid paced riffs with raging punked up distorted aggression with some frenzied lead playing thrown in for good measure, they know how to mix up tempos well resulting in a varied and dynamic aural assault on the ears and their sound continually twists and turns with various metal and crust/punk influences entwining themselves around each other creating a perfectly balanced crossover, a sound that should appeal just as much to metalheads as it does to crust punks." - TERRORIZER.com

WOLFBRIGADE "d-beat odyseey" (Havoc) - 16€
US-import! Repress! - Finally a long overdue repress of the "a d-veat odyssey" MLP, originally released in 2004. You'll get 6 tracks of dark, metal-influenced Scandinavian hardcore with melodic guitar leads over pounding crustcore beats.
This was originally planned to be a tour 7" for Wolfbrigade's 2004 US tour. As it happened the material was too long for a 7" and the band opted to release it as a 12" MLP. Lyrics deal with alienation and depression from life in modern Swedish society and an anti-fascist anthem. The first pressings of this 12" sold out quickly, and for years there was talk of a new pressing with some unreleased bonus material. This never happened, and now in 2018 we bring you a re press.

BOXSET
DISCHARGE "noise not music" 3 x LPs, 1 x 7" + Hardcover Book (FOAD Records) – 80€
Brief introduction: in 1980 four teenagers from Stoke exploded onto the worldwide punk scene with all the subtlety of a ten megaton nuclear warhead; so powerful and devastating was their initial impact that the entire world sat up, took notice, and thousands of bands across the globe were prompted to harden their style and speed up in a vain attempt to match the singularly most ferocious band on planet earth. That band ladies and gentlemen, was DISCHARGE! Over the next three years their uncompromising musical onslaught grew tighter, lyrically bleaker and even more unrelenting as they unleashed release after release highlighting the monstrous nuclear threat the world faced along with the true realities of war and insidious state control! Unstoppable in the race towards musical Armageddon, the bands enduring legacy has never accurately been captured until now; FOAD Records has spent a long time in creating the ultimate DISCHARGE release: the gigantic “NOISE NOT MUSIC” boxset consisting of a massive hard-cover book, a triple LP set housed in a trifold sleeve, a 8-track 7″ and a poster! With a visual presentation that follows the true aesthetic of the early singles by using only original logos, fonts, colours and the graphic style of the band’s first 3 EP’s and packaging that finally does them justice rather than another cheap bootleg or cash in by a label looking to make money.
Over 1 year in the making, this release combines the most exhaustive BOOK ever made about DISCHARGE with a triple LP + 7″ capturing the band’s incredible live intensity and aggression through some of their best, rawest sets recorded from 1980 to 1983. Housed in a heavyweight silver hot foil stamped slipcase, the DISCHARGE : “NOISE NOT MUSIC” Boxset contains the following..:
🢒 ”NOISE NOT MUSIC” TRIPLE LIVE ALBUM
Tri-fold 350 gsm heavyweight sleeve with all the correct lyrics for the first three EP’s printed together for the first time ANYWHERE outside the original band made lyric sheets (not some garbled nonsense copied from the internet) the recordings have their audio remastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studios and featuring full raging sets from the following gigs:

🢒 A2 Promotional Poster
DISCHARGE was more than just a noise, the band was a musical reaction to the brutal times and circumstances faced by people in the U.K. under the Thatcher regime, they were also a voice for the “X” generation without a future; but most importantly, they were FAST, RAW, LOUD, HARDCORE PUNK!

LP

DISTRUST "a dream of peace +" (F.O.A.D.) DOUBLE LP - 20€
FOAD's legacy with Swedish Hardcore/Punk pioneering bands goes on! After unearthing the early recordings of the speed Hardcore maniacs ASOCIAL, it's time for another classic act from the same "family".. DISTRUST! Brief history: Distrust came together in the summer of 1983 when the 2 brothers Kenneth & Tommy (from B.T.D.) joined Håkan & Peter L (before in Why War?). Håkan had just started singing in Asocial (later on drums) and Tompa (Asocial) lived next door to Kenneth and Tommy so it was natural those two bands did a lot of things together. After that Distrust dissolved in the end of -84 or early -85 Kenneth joining Asocial on bass (later on guitar). This double LP discography includes all their existing recordings compiled by Håkan straight from the master tapes for the best sounding result: "A dream of peace" Demo 1983, "Vi Rustar Dom Dor" Demo 1984, the split live tape with Asocial, all tracks from "No War No More 1 & 2", "Really Fast Vol.II" plus extra rehearsal and live tracks, for a total of 61 songs of uncompromised Swedish Punk/Hardcore mangel!! They sound as raw and furious as Asocial with an even punker approach. If you're into raw no frills Scandinavian HC/Punk and enjoy bands like Mob 47, Crude SS, Missbrukarna, Svart Parad, Headcleaners, you just can't miss this! Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve including a 11" x 11" packed with liner notes, photos, flyers and original artworks!

OI POLLOI / TOXIK EPHEX "mad as fuck" - split (Mad Butcher) - 13€
Repress of this top class Scottish Anarcho-Punk meeting. Originally released in 1987 we have 7 classic crusty Anarchoi Punk stompers from the representatives from Edinburgh (OI POLLOI) and 5 folk influenced cynical Punkrock tracks by those Aberdeen lads (Toxik Ephex) … this album was unavailable since the initial press was gone… trap one now!

SAINT VITUS "heavier than thou" (SST) DOUBLE LP - 20€
Thoroughly ignored outside the deepest heavy metal underground throughout their long career, Saint Vitus only later received some recognition for their crucial influence over the late-90s/early-2000s doom/stoner metal scene. In fact, it could be argued that Vitus followers such as Sleep and Electric Wizard pretty much learned all their lessons from 'Heavier Than Thou' - a 14-track collection of Vitusglory years with SST Records. Starting with the band's magnum opus, 'Born Too Late' (which is wisely included almost in its entirety), and working its way back toward their eponymous Scott Reagers-fronted debut, the listener is given a reverse look at the band's evolution from lo-fi Sabbath enthusiasts ('White Magic/Black Magic,' 'War Is Our Destiny') to a pile-driving riff machine ('Look Behind You,' 'Bitter Truth') behind ex-Obsessed/Spirit Caravan vocalist Scott 'Wino' Weinrich.

LION'S LAW "zonard" (Une vie pour rien Vinyles) - 6€
After 3 albums and gigs around the world, were Lion's Law still able to surprise us? Fuck yes! They are back to their roots with the return of their former drummer Tomoi's and 3 songs... in French. This new departure proves that you'll not get bored of them before long.


10'
LION'S LAW "open your eyes" (Une vie pour rien Vinyles) - 12€
Having formed only about two years ago, Lion's Law has quickly established themselves as one of the elite, modern, skinhead streetpunk bands alongside Booze & Glory, Evil Conduct, Bishops Green and The Templars. Formed by members of the popular French band Rixe, Maraboots, Lion's Law took a direction equally as influenced by classic UK oi bands like Last Resort as much as classic French bands like Warrior Kids and Camera Silens. This fusion creates a unique sound that has met with success not only across Europe but also in the U.S. and elsewhere.


LP

BLITZ "second empire justice" (Restless Empire) - 16€
"When Crisis had their own personal Joy Division epiphany, they ultimately became Death in June. When the rowdy Oi! band The Blitz went through the same thing, they abruptly changed musical course and released Second Empire Justice, alienating their skinhead fanbase almost overnight. Like Joy Division, New Order, and Death in June, Blitz’s name had sketchy political connotations; Nietzschean song titles like “New Age” didn’t help. In fact, it was “New Age” and especially its promo video, which exaggerated things just a little bit by stating the band were from Manchester (really, they were from nearby New Mills) – that signaled the sea change in the band’s sound. Suddenly the Blitz were dressed in all black dress shirts, and it sounded like Bernard Sumner was guesting on guitar. Oi! seer Gary Bushell had claimed Blitz’s 1982 Voice of a Generation LP was like The Clash’s debut album “in terms of feel, suss and relevance.” Comparisons like this came to aquick halt after Second Empire Justice came out." (Cvlt Nation). Limited repress on Restless Empire.

BROMURE - st (Une vie pour rien Vinyles) - 13€
Does French oi! have a typical sound, a unique attitude? Today it is difficult to say when you see so many different bands in this scene. But everybody would agree: Bromure have the french oi! sound and attitude. And this first album will soon be a reference in the style.

CONFLICT "increase the pressure" (Restless Empire) - 15€
"Increase the Pressure" is the second album by the British punk rock band Conflict originally released in 1984. Conflict, a crew of radical anarchists and animal rights activists, put out a bunch of great records in the '80s and a few in the '90s. Increase the Pressure is among the best of them.

THE EXPLOITED "let's start a war" (Restless Empire) - 15€
Let's Start a War, or Let's Start a War... (Said Maggie One Day), is the third album by the punk band The Exploited, released in 1983 through Pax Records. The title refers to Margaret Thatcher's decision to go to war over the Falkland Islands in 1982, suggesting that she did so almost on a whim. The controversial war was fodder for many protest songs in the punk movement.

LION'S LAW "a day will come" (Une vie pour rien Vinyles) - 13€
This is one of the best debut albums of any "new" band in ages! This album is all hit after hit. All killer, no filler! To some this album may seem a cliché, but there is a reason for that – this is some of the most legitimate Oi! music since the 80's!! LION'S LAW is able to combine the seminal melodic sounds of the "Chaos en France" era French bands with 80's style UK Oi! resulting in a sound that is like a skinhead album straight out of a Richard Allen book! This music is wild and aggressive, with passion from the heart – from the backstreets of Paris. This is for fans of 4-SKINS, PERKELE, MARCHING ORDERS or THE STRIKE to name a few...New repress in black and white and LP only.

THE PARTISANS "the times was right" (Restless Empire) - 15€
Their second Lp originally released in 1984 on Cloak & Dagger Records, it features one studio side and one live side, with the studio version of Blind Ambition tacked on the end.


SKELETAL FAMILY "futile combat" (Restless Empire) - 15€
Skeletal Family remain one of the most adventurous & best-loved of all the bands associated with the 80s Goth scene; originally released in 1985, the 'Futile Combat' sessions featured Anthony Thistlewaite [Waterboys] & Graham Pleeth [Fischer Z] on keyboards; includes the singles 'Promised Land' & 'She Cries Alone'. It's their second album.

ZYGOTE "a wind of knives" (Monolith) - 14€
Zygote was the band that formed after the first breakup of AMEBIX in the late ’80s, and included Stig Miller and Spider of AMEBIX along with George Smutpig and Tim Crow of the SMARTPILS. In 1991 The band released one album entiteld “A Wind of Knives” on MCR UK – They toured along with CITIZEN FISH and were a solid part of the UK free-festival scene until they broke up after just a few years of existence.
Despise of many blogs articles you find online, ZYGOTE was not a crust-band nor a gothic or deathrock band. ZYGOTE’s approach on music was way more diverse and unique. There was alot of rythm and variation in their songwriting and a steady rock’n’roll element not unlike a “gothesque-motorhead” maybe. Monolith records is now re-releasing the LP with the two bonus tracks that were originally on the 1994 German CD re-release of the album. The re-release was remastered by Jack Butcher and comes with insert and poster.

Debut release from Nurse of War from Athens who play brilliant, unique melodic "halloween" punk'n'roll with male and female vocals and mesmerizing keyboards. Co-release between Scarecrow Records and B-otherside records.
"Athens disco punk all the way! Nurse of War is one more of those cases that I just HAD to shout about despite my zero free time and I did so again on this blog when I had discovered their incredible 2-track single Σιδηρά Παρθένα. Some weeks later, Εις Τόπον Χλοερόν was unleashed on their bandcamp and it immediately ensnared me with its pop architecture dressed with pure rock 'n' roll feeling and '60s garage keyboards throughout. The macabre and dark sarcasm of the lyrics and the sound samples from cult greek movies heard here and there are definitely a plus, and, all in all, we're talking about a record you want to dance to under a dusted discoball until your feet are sore."

THE ANSWER? “…and it’s already tomorrow” (B-otherside) - 16
H μπάντα των THE ANSWER? μετράει αισίως 24 χρόνια ζωής στην ανεξάρτητη ελληνική σκηνή, όταν το 1995 δύο μέλη των Middle Fingers, αποφάσισαν παράλληλα την δημιουργία ενός νέου σχήματος. Με βάση την Αλεξανδρούπολη το 1996, αρχικά σαν τρίο και για δύο χρόνια συνεχίζουν να χρησιμοποιούν το όνομα Middle Fingers και θα εμφανιστούν ζωντανά σε συναυλίες και φεστιβάλ, συμμετοχικά με πολλές μπάντες, μεταξύ αυτών και με τους Λευκή Συμφωνία, Ache In Silence, Τσοπάνα Rave, Γκούλαγκ. Με την καθιέρωση του ονόματος το 1998 σε The Answer? και τη προσθήκη ενός ακόμη κιθαρίστα το καλοκαίρι της επόμενης χρονιάς στη μπάντα στα τέλη του 1999, θα κυκλοφορήσουν ανεξάρτητα την πρώτη τους δισκογραφική δουλειά. Συνεχίζουν έτσι ως τετράδα μέχρι το 2003 και επιστρέφουν σαν τρίο ξανά, κλείνοντας έτσι ουσιαστικά τη πρώτη περίοδο της μπάντας, έχοντας παίξει και με τους θρυλικούς Dead Moon (USA) στη τελευταία τους περιοδεία τον Οκτώβριο του 2006.
Μετά το 2007 και ένα διάλλειμα μουσικών αναζητήσεων, επιστρέφουν το 2014 για να συνεχίσουν το μουσικό τους ταξίδι και με την προσθήκη δεύτερου κιθαρίστα η μπάντα ξεκινάει ζωντανές εμφανίσεις και την ολοκλήρωση ενός δεύτερου άλμπουμ.
Δεκαεννιά χρόνια μετά την πρώτη τους κυκλοφορία, η B-Otherside Records με την υποστήριξη της Aza Records Collective, θα έχει την χαρά να παρουσιάσει τον νέο δίσκο των “The Answer?” με τίτλο “…And It’s Already Tomorrow”, ο οποίος περιλαμβάνει 11 rock δυναμίτες οι οποίοι ακροβατούν ανάμεσα στο μελωδικό punk, τον alternative-Indie ήχο των ‘90’s αλλά και πινελιές από pop punk του σήμερα.

NEW ARRIVALS & RESTOCKS - 12.01.2019

LP

ΣΤΡΑΦΗ - st (Self Released) - 13
Πανκ ροκ από Λάρισα.

ΣΚΟΤΟΔΙΝΗ - st (Self Released) - 10
Back in stock. "Skotodini’s hometown is a beautiful but very isolated city of the Greek west, called Ioannina. This place has never been really the home of Greek punk but these young anarcho-punks have managed to bring this area on surface, with various projects they’ve been involved in, and make it a must-stop for touring bands visiting Greece. As Ivan Shentov already mentioned, they self-record, self-produce and self-release all their music and I really admire this passion which definitely is radiated in their unique dark punk and female-fronted sound, including constant guitar shredding and super catchy parts. They have two full-lengths with melodies you should really be aware of!"

ARCTIC FLOWERS "reveries" (Trujaca Fala) - 10€
We are so happy to deliver for you together with Sabotage Records Euro press of the debut LP by this amazing Portland band. After great debut EP and split with Spectres comes “Reveries”. Their sound builds on the foundation of UK anarchopunk meeting their previous work with such bands as Signal Lost and The Observers. This 12" has 8 songs leaning more towards the hardcore end of the spectrum while throwing in the occasional Mob influenced bit of melodic punk.

THE BELLICOSE MINDS "the spine" (Sabotage) - 13€
The Bellicose Minds are a three piece band from Portland, Oregon who formed in 2009. The Bellicose Minds play a cold, bleak, and dark style of punk and post punk music. Musically, The Bellicose Minds cite Chameleons, Killing Joke, Joy Division, The Cure and Play Dead as influences, which definitely shows up within the band's sound. The Spine is the band's first full length.

DEAN DIRG "four successive blasts" (P. Trash / Prügelprinz) - 14€ (Silk-screened versions)
Germany's Dean Dirg deliver 19 blasts of punk-hardcore rippers, the longest of which clocks in at less than a minute and a half. Raw guitars, gang vocals, and furious (yet somewhat danceable) drum beats in the classic Dean Dirg tradition. The Dean Dirg sound generally falls somewhere between the Circle Jerks and a less coked-out Jay Reatard.
This LP compiled DEan Dirg songs from the following releases
The Chimpänzee 7"
What's New 7"
Henry Fiat's Open Sore Split
Bombenalarm Split
Silk-screened versions, handnumbered #/125 with red colour on yellow cardboard.

GG ALLIN + THE SCUMFUCKS "eat my fuck" (Toilet Rock) - 14€
When GG Allin And The Jabbers broke up in 1984 after the album Always Was , Is, And Always Shall Be, Allin joined his brother Merle in Boston and briefly fronted the Cedar Street Sluts before forming a new group dubbed the Scumfucs. He also started his own Blood label in 1984 to release an album with an otherwise unreleasable title, Eat My Fuc (later dubbed E.M.F. when reissued). True to its name, Eat My Fuc marked the point where Allin’s lyrics took a turn for the demented. Several EPs — Hard Candy Cock, I Wanna Fuck Your Brains Out, Live Fast, Die Fast — followed, and over the next couple of years, Allin’s live act soon became one of the most feared (or celebrated, depending on your point of view) concert experiences in the Northeast. He was an enormously polarizing figure in the punk community, and — unsurprisingly — found it increasingly difficult to get gigs, especially after a 1986 Village Voice article that chronicled a notorious show at New York City’s Cat Club (reportedly the first time he defecated on-stage). Black vinyl with inserts and poster.

SPECTRES "last days" (Taken by Surprise) - 12€
The 1st full-length from SPECTRES expands the song writing skills from their 2 previous 7"s to include some more angular writing abilies. The vocals are more dynamic and overall better thought out. Being compared to bands like JOY DIVISION and SISTERS OF MERCY is a hard thing to live up to, but they have definitely taken those influences and molded them into something heartfelt and profound.

THE STAR CLUB "cool posers! (the early singles 1977-83)" (Fan Club) - 14€
Star Club, wow…most people slag this band as nothing but a 2-Bit, Japanese Sex Pistols knock-off. Their image & visual style is no argument against this opinion, but it is NOT AT ALL accurate for their musical style! Originally formed in the city of Nagoya sometime in 1977, they have the dubious distinction of being the FIRST Japanese punk band, ever. one could definately dispute this statement, but whatever…thats what the history books claim.
Bootleg LP contains their singles, with poster.
A1 - A4 Go To Hell - 7"EP 1977
A5 - A9 Club Take One 7"EP 1981
A10 - B1 Club The Star 7"EP 1982
B2 - B6 Shut Up! 7"EP 1982
B7 & B8 The Star Club #6 7" 1983



NEW ARRIVALS & RESTOCKS - 22.12.2018

EP
MY TURN "buried inside" (Grim Reality) - 7
Τρία νέα τραγούδια.

DISCHARGE "fight back" (Havoc) - 5€
"fight back" contains 5 song blast of pure anger and energy - DISCHARGE at their finest here. Pure beat raw hardcore-punk against which all the successors can be measured. This hard driving music is the perfect vehicle for the outrage at war and oppression conveyed by the harsh lyrics and graphics.

DISCHARGE "decontrol" (Havoc) - 5€
Classic 3 song rager from 1980. Less than a year removed from "realities of war" the sound is already faster and more aggressive, leaving '70s punk behind and blazing into pure hardcore raw punk. This record has 3 of DISCHARGE's best songs which are just pure blasts of raw anger and urgency. UK hardcore as it's best!

DISCHARGE "never again" (Havoc) - 5€
It's 1981, the cold war rages, threatening to turn hot at any moment as Reagan, Thatcher and Brezhnev seem poised to destroy the world in a descent to nuclear madness. Using cover art appropriated from 1930's anti fascist agit-prop DISACHARGE links the bleak reality of Thatcher's Britain with the descent to totalitarian oppression and war of an earlier generation. A bit more polished than the 1st three 7"s and the "why?" MLP, "never again" delivers 3 blasts of hardcore.

DISCHARGE "state violence, state control" (Havoc) - 5€
DISCHARGE's 5th 7", from 1982. The sound is a bit less raw and there is a tiny bit of the metal influence starting to show. The energy and power of "hear nothing see nothing say nothing" are starting to manifest on these tracks.

GAS RAG "human rights' (Even Worse) - 5€
Chicago sex punks GAS RAG are back with six tracks of hardcore punk for the masses. Recorded during the same session that yielded the critically acclaimed 2013 demo, the “HUMAN RIGHTS” EP is sure to tickle the collective fancy of those who were stimulated by the aforementioned demo tape. Blending elements of D-Beat rock based music and a bit of their own Midwestern flavor, GAS RAG gives Earth's freaks the perfect summer soundtrack to go along nicely with their inhalants and/or any other substances that one would deem fit.

GO! "the word is go!" (Refuse) - 5€
Raw as fuck, this 1989 demo shows GO! just as they were starting out – and the 12 songs pack a real punch. If you like this NYHC band, this'll be a bonus for you. If not – hold on. You'll be singing "Just.. Say… GO!" to over 12 minutes of crucial hardcore from back in the day. GO! started shortly after Mike BS left SFA, and shortly before starting the weekly hardXcore matinees at ABC-No-Rio, which are still running 25 years later. Most of the songs are under a minute, but this ep is filled to the max – another 20 seconds and it wouldn't have made it onto a 7"!
GO! was not your typical band from New York. From the very beginning they were gay-positive, anti-racist and anti-sexism. They had a message, but were also sarcastic and fun - and there were a lot of singalongs. This is one-time pressing.


RUINED FAMILIES - self titled (Halo Of Flies / Adagio 830 / Dog Knights Productions / Gardens) - 6€
Dark blackened hardcore from Greece. In your face disturbing and noisy - Cory from Halo of Flies says they take elements of crust, hardcore, black metal & noise rock, then transform these genres into their own likeness. It just rips.

LP
COLD I "άνθη γκρεμού" (Scarecrow/We Don't Fight) - 12
New mini LP. Even more melodic and nostalgic dark post punk.

BAD TRIP "when nothing claims to be something" (Self Released)- 10€
Καινούριος δίσκος απο τους Θεσσαλονικιούς
Bad Trip.

4 SKINS "a fistful of... 4 skins" (Radiation) - 14€
Hailing from London's working class East End, The 4-Skins formed in 1979 at the very onset of Oi! music. By the time this, their 2nd full length, was released in 1983 by the Syndicate Records label, the group had gone through numerous line-up changes and were now sporting a heavier, more melodic,  hard rock-based sound fronted by ex-Last Resort vocalist, Roi Pearce. One of the hardest hitting punk albums of the '80s A Fistful Of 4-Skins is reissued here on LP with 2 tracks ("On The Streets" from the 'Son Of Oi!' compilation and a demo version of 'Saturday') added as bonus!

4 SKINS "low life" (Radiation) - 14€
A collection of the earliest singles ("Yesterday's Heroes," "One Law For Them," and "Low Life," from 1981-1982) along with a few of the most representative hymns from the most epitomal oi band ever, all packed onto one vinyl LP. A full retrospective on their early era, this is 4 Skins at their absolute top and a must for all skinheads out there.

AD NAUSEAM "the greatest show on earth" (Noise Not Music) - 12€
One of the great lost treasures of Brit-punk, Ad Nauseam hailed from the town of Portsmouth in the south of England. After a couple of demo tapes and a single, they self-released this 8 track 12" that totally competed with Disorder and Varukers in terms of rage and fury. Plodding and painful UK anarcho-punk delivered amidst complete chaos and a whir of analog distortion. Originally printed and distributed by the band in 1987, supposedly in a mere impossible-to-find few hundred copies, this is a must have in any UK Hardcore collection! Comes with insert - sealed 140gr vinyl.

AGENT ATTITUDE "deranged realities" (Adult Crash) – 12€
AA defines an active band with plenty tours in their backsack. Releasing vinyl after vinyl, cassette on US-label and mostly tearing it down into sweat, adrenaline and instant smiles in the pit, Monument Records are privileged to be on the run since the start with Green Menace Records. The latter, and most frequent teamplayer, turned to Adult Crash: Denmark's finest.
Here we are talking fast hardcore of the old school with clear USHC tendencies from all the wonderful 80's. Dirty, bloody and raw quickly, just as it was intended from the very beginning. Frustration, anxiety and cheeky middle finger recorded on a twelve inch of plastic. It does not get much more punk than this.
For fans of: Battalion Of Saints, Black Flag, Minor Threat, early Suicidal Tendencies, Jerry’s Kids, Bl’ast, Circle Jerks....like “Totalitär, Bl’ast, SSD and Black Flag raised a baby together”.

ALTERNATIVE TV "the image has cracked" (Radiation Reissues) – 15€
Formed in London in 1977 by Mark Perry and Alex Fergusson, then editors of the punk fanzine 'Sniffin' Glue', Alternative TV was a post-punk group known for incorporating reggae rhythms and pushing the boundaries of the definition of punk towards the experimental and avant-garde. Their first album, 'The Image Has Cracked', was originally issued in 1978 and is a wholly unique piece of British post-punk. Beloved by John Peel, and close confidantes of Throbbing Gristle, Alternative TV is one of the most original and beguiling groups of the era. This classic title is now reissued on 180-gram vinyl with two bonus tracks and a double-sided insert.

ANTLERS "a gaze into the abyss" (Vendetta) - 11€
Hailing from Leipzig in Germany, ANTLERS are a punk and shoegaze-influenced black metal band driven by solemn and vast riffing soundscapes, inconsolable mid-tempo rhythms, and eerie melodies and moods.

ARCTIC FLOWERS "weaver" (Sabotage) - 12€
Portland’s Arctic Flowers with their long-awaited second LP! After last year’s excellent "Procession" EP, an EP that showcased the Flowers’ talent for combining the tradition of anarcho/peace punk with a postpunk sensibility, the new "Weaver" LP continues in much the same vein. The first side kicks off with the energetic track "Magdalene" and the pace doesn’t let up too much from there, culminating in the barnstorming track "Anamnesis", which employs a riff that reminds me of a Rudimentary Peni track (specifically, "The Evil Clergyman" off RP's "Cacophony"). But it's Side 2 that contains my favorite tracks off this new release. The second side kicks off with the memorable track “Byzantine”, guitarist Stan Wright lays down a chunky, Killing Joke-esque riff (think of that band’s song "Tension" mixed with "The Wait"), complemented by frontwoman Alex's vocals, which recall the classic goth-punk of bands like Rubella Ballet and Lost Cherrees. The following title track, "Weaver" is another winner – just a great mid-tempo punk rocker that, in true Arctic Flowers fashion, blurs the boundaries between classic punk, postpunk, and early gothic rock. Indeed, in an interview I did with Arctic Flowers almost two years ago, founder and guitarist Stan Wright stated, "Our sound is a mix of punk, deathrock, post punk, and goth. Aggressive but at times danceable and melodic."

ANTI "i don't wanna die in your war" (Radiation) - 15€
Part of the late '70s/early '80s HC/punk explosion out of the Los Angeles area, where bands like Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Minutemen, and Bad Religion originated from, Anti formed in 1979 by a then teenage Danny Phillips, better known as Danny Dean, who was the bassist/guitarist and first original vocalist, primary songwriter, and sole continuous member throughout multiple lineup changes during the past 40 years. Their 1982 debut album, 'I Don't Want To Die In Your War', was recorded and mixed by legendary producer and sound engineer for Black Flag and Descendents, Spot. It is a major example of California hardcore from the early '80s. Despite having been completely underrated, Anti's 1982 debut paved the way for a lot of California punk to come. Available again for the first time after almost four decades on its original format, with its original artwork and complete with insert thanks to Radiation Records.

ANTI "defy the system" (Radiation) - 15€
Recorded in Hollywood in a mere three days at the end of 1982 - oddly enough aided by the presence of Joe Strummer who was in the studio the first day of recording- 'Defy The System' is California punk group Anti's second album, considered by most to be at least as astonishing as their debut. Partly played by John Carthy from Alley Cats on drums, and originally released on the New Underground label, this was the second and last chapter in Anti's history, right before singer Danny Dean went on to form his later band Easter with Social Distortion's Mike Ness on guitar. This is pure early '80s California punk rock in the vein of Bad Religion or T.S.O.L. An absolute masterpiece now represented on vinyl, with original artwork and insert, for the first time in 35 years.

ANTI "god can't bounce" (Radiation) - 15€
Anti's 1984 'God Can't Bounce' collects all their tracks from the New Underground's label 'Life Is...' compilation (a California Punk manifesto of sorts which also included, among others, Descendents, Minutemen, and Germs), and outtakes from both previous albums, consisting of recordings made in the 1982 and 1983 period. Ten slabs of pure California punk rock for fans of Black Flag, Bad Religion, Sin 34 and the like. First vinyl reissue in nearly 35 years on Radiation Records.

ANTI CIMEX "the records 81-86" (New Prejudice a2o) - 15€
Anti Cimex formed in 1981 and existed roughly up to 1993. They were considered as one of the so-called D-beat punk bands, in Sweden also called "Kängpunk", inspired in particular by the English hardcore punk band Discharge, who invented the style. Semi official release collects their: "Anarkist Attack" 7" (1982), "Raped Ass" 7" (1983), "Victims Of A Bomb Raid" 7" (1984) and Anti Cimex 12" (1986).

ANTISECT "leeds 2.4.86" (Antisociety) - 12€
Live recording of one of the most influential bands from England, their full lenght "In Darkness ..." is a classic dark anarcho punk. Here, good quality concert from Leeds in 1986. In addition, double insert with a history of Antisect, interview and other things.

ANTIDOTE “thou shalt not kill” (Ilegal Y Que Discos) - 11€
A real classic of NYC hardcore thrash, this features all 8 tracks from their self- released 1982 'Thou Shalt Not Kill' EP on side 1, plus another 14 tracks from a 1983 high quality live set on side 2, including 6 previously unreleased songs! Fast, pissed, tough and raging! With original artwork, plus an insert with lyrics on one side and an interview with their singer on the other. 1000 copies made.

BAD BRAINS "lost tracks" (Fan Club) - 17€
Collects what looks like their "pre" Bad Brains band "MIND POWER" - demo from (1978) & two unknown studio demos from (1979) .... Very rare tracks allowing you to hear the band in their early & rawest from. Probably their earliest recording, called "Mind Power" demo, named because it was recorded when the band was still called Mind Power. 2 more demos done at unknown studios a little bit before their early stuff that are appearing on pay to cum 1979-1981 record mastered for vinyl ... comes with a double sided insert & sticker.

BATHORY "in memory of quorthon - 1966-2004" (Fan Club) - 11€
Contains most of the unreleased material from the Jubileum and Katalog CDs. "Crawl To Your Cross" is simply called "Crawl" on the back cover. Limited edition.

BLACK FLAG "demos 1982" (Fan Club) - 12€
The only recordings with Chuck Biscuits on drums. Tracks A1 and A2 were never officially released, other tracks are unreleased versions. Great quality boot.

BLOOD SUCKERS "crush to dust" (Sjakk Matt Plater) - 12€
Debut 12" from this new Oslo based band including members of Problems, Okkultokrati and Urbanoia! Primitive in-your-face hardcore at its best.

BOMBENALARM “no mistakes” (Unsociable) – 10€
Bombenalarm play hc/punk with diverse influences, a lot of power, outstanding vocals, and raging guitar leads. This is their second full length, which encompasses the power they have as a band with precision and depth more fully than any of their previous releases. Awesome recording and great artwork by these German punx. 11 tracks destined for glory, and many circle pits.

BRUTAL KNIGHTS "living by yourself" (Deranged) - 12€
The BRUTAL KNIGHTS are back! This is the North American version of their sold-out euro tour picture-disc LP originally released on Germany's P.trash records. The Deranged version offers 4 bonus exclusive tracks not included on the P.trash edition. These new tracks were recorded by the band themselves in their practice space and they're their most suitable recording to date. Besides the production, this new album is easily BRUTAL KNIGHTS best material to date. "living by yourself" continues in the retarded auditory tradition that is BRUTAL KNIGHTS and this time around, they are also complimented by a stunning gatefold-sleeve.

CHAOS U.K. "floggin' the corpse" (Radiation) - 14€
On the LP-format, this is an amazing archival release collecting previously unreleased tracks and 10 great live cuts (recorded in 1983) from the important second wave UK punk band, based near Bristol. Essential punk history!

CONFUSE "indignation" (Noise Not Music) LP - 12€
Ultra-raw noisy thrash is the word for the most widely loved Japanese HC band ever! Their 1984 "Indignation" demos, now available on vinyl again in all their unprecedented brutality. Comes with a printed inner sleeve.


CRUCIFIX "dehumanization" (Southern) - 12€
Reissue of the classic 1984 masterpiece by one of the best U.S. hc acts of all times. CRUCIFIX combines the political spirit of CRASS & CONFLICT with the DISCHARGE school of music. Along with DISCHARGE - "Hear Nothing", ANTISECT's - "In Darkness" and AMEBIX - "Monolith" this is one of the most important anarchopunk releases of the 1980s. "Prejudice", "No Limbs" and "See Through Their Lies" are highlights. Sothira's vocals are very powerful & unique for this style. Six-panel fold-out cover with a poster on one side, and lyrics/information on the other side.

DIE KREUZEN - s/t (Touch And Go) - 18€
This is the classic debut from Milwaukee's DIE KREUZEN originally released in 1984, who seamlessly blended hardcore-punk with darker elements to create a unique sound that nobody has been able to duplicate. A 24 song must have. More then a classic piece of vinyl - aA definitive '80s hardcore band. Vinyl includes a digital download card.


DISCHARGE "why" (Havoc) - 12€
Released in 1981 and packed with amazing anthems like "ain't no feeble bastard" DISCHARGE struck the middle ground between the dark, angry worldview and raw emotion of underground punk and the rowdy rock'n'roll of the better metal bands - when told DISCHARGE sounded like MÖTÖRHEAD, they replied, "they sound like us".


ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN "bbc recordings 1979-1980" (Fan Club) - 16€
US import LP collection of BBC radio sessions from 1979 and 1980, including the first ever Bunnymen recordings with drum machine programming by David Balfe of Teardrop Explodes. Raw, powerful versions of songs that were eventually released on the Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here albums.

FUERZA BRUTA "verdugo" (Rebellion) - 15
Foreign Legion Records' first and second press, as well as Under Watchful Eyes' limited edition of just 100 copies of FUERZA BRUTA's "VERDUGO" LP literally flew out the door! Not that weird though, because those who are familiar with these hard-hitting savages from Chicago all agree on one thing - this was one of the, if not - the best release of 2017!
Despite this, it was nearly impossible to find a copy in Europe - until now that is! Because REBELLION RECORDS is proud to unleash this beast onto the European market for everyone to hear! So if you - for whatever reason - missed out before, now is your time to grab a copy of this explosive mix of brickwall Oi! and raucous hardcore-punk and to find out what this fuzz is all about! Oh, you might want to shape up on your Spanish though, because this record is completely En Español! One-sided vinyl comes with a silkscreened b-side.

GAUZE - st (Fanclub) - 12€
Legendary and one of the best ever hardcore punk bands from Japan, who formed in Fall 1981.

You get 23 tracks from from City Rockers LP, Outsider LP, Farewell To Arms LP and Trash Till Death.

GG ALLIN "always was, is and always shall be" (Euro Fan) - 14€

HELLBASTARDS "heading for internal darkness" (Threats from the Past) - 12€
Finally out on vinyl, the classic, definitive crust records from Hellbastard. In my opinion this is one of the finest and "purest" examples of the heroic era of crust. perfectly mixing the sounds of anarcho punk bands like Antisect and Amebix with Metal to create the modern crust sound. When I first started doing record distro this was one of the records I sold the most copies of, now 20 years later we get to sell it all over again. If you like metallic crust, don't miss the bus on this re issue.

HELLSHOCK "they wait for you still" (Agipunk) - 10€
Reissue of the third full lenght for the kings of PDX stenchcore! All copies come with a slightly different front design compared to the first press. Originally recorded in Japan during their last tour, this all-time crust masterpiece has just been repressed in 500 copies.


HOAX - st (Self Released) - 12€
Western Massachusetts' HOAX presents their highly anticipated self-titled, self-released 12 song debut LP. After a relentless string of EP's and tours, this release marks a new standard in DIY hardcore punk. Taking their pummeling, mid-tempo sound and expanding it into something far sicker and hideous, they have leveled the horizon with a series of anthems as you've never heard before. A huge collaborative effort masterfully engineered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air studios, this LP features contributions from 14 of the underground's finest artists and comes housed in a full-color, double-scored folder enclosing 6 double-sided poster sized inserts.


HONGO "...y sembrarán los campos de odio“ (Contraszt!) - 10€
Since the beginning of the band in 2000, HONGO from Spain have been absorbing influences from all members previous bands (MADAME GERMEN, BLACK PANDA, NASHGUL etc.). With their newest effort "...y sembrarán los campos de odio" they consequently deliver a further development to their previous works. Creating a really intense dark atmosphere of epic post-metal/doom, you will find a encompassing trance sound on this record biased on the paths of bands such as NEUROSIS and ENVY, with a suffocated voice growling about a worried perspective of the human nature.


HORROR VACUI "new wave of fear" (Sabotage) - 13€
Three years after their 2nd album "return of the empire", the italian Vampire punx combo returns with "new wave of fear". The tunes got darker and less punk than their previous releases but, all in all, the formula hasn't changed too much, and, hell yeah, this is a concept album about life and death. It's a more intense record and definitely better than their old ones, and you can also hear the crusty roots of some of the members in their last song where AMEBIX and FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM meet in a no men's land to face the end of it all.

IMPACT "attraverso l'involucro" (Radiation) - 12€
Radiation gladly announces the very first vinyl reissue treatment ever for IMPACT's classic 1987 MLP "Attraverso L'involucro", in deluxe package with printed inner sleeve and a plethora of bonuses: 6 tracks from their split 7" with EU's ARSE from 1983, 10 tracks from their 1982 demos and the hard to find "L'uomo Procede", Impact's contribution to the legendary 1984 "P.E.A.C.E" 2xLP International HC sampler on Radical Records. Yeah, that's a total of 24 tracks!


INFEST "demo 1987" (Fan Club) - 14€
Finally the entire 20 track 1987 demo on vinyl. It contained the demo plus rehearsal tracks. The demo has a great raw sound, and Joe's vocals are more psychotic and manic sounding than on the LP.


INFINITE VOID "endless waves" (Contraszt)
- 12
INFINITE VOID's final, posthumous recordings has been reanimated and clawed its way from the grave to consume our brains with its brilliants. Formed in 2010 from past and present members of The Diamond Sea, Deep Heat and Circuits, INFINITE VOID from Melbourne / Australia played a gritty and melodic tangle of dark, edgy punk, Australian garage and 90's indie rock driven by brilliant guitar interplay and infectious girl/ guy vocals. Recorded and mixed by Steven Smith at Goatsound Studios on Wurundjeri Land over 2 days in March 2017. Mastered by Steven Smith in March 2018. Cover art by Lou Ellen Cormick. The album is a must for fans of Wipers, For Against, Sleater Kinney, Sonic Youth and alike.

INVASIONEN arvegods" (Ny Vag) - 10€
Invasionen is back with a 4-song 12". 4 tracks of dark moody and infectious postpunk. A limited edition 12" of 500 Copies. Invasionen released their first full-length last year to critical acclaim in Sweden. When the last record was in the vein of more classic Swedish punk the new one has a more postpunk sound in the vein of bands like Echo and The Bunnymen, The Sound, Killing Joke, Joy Division, The Chameleons, TT Reuter, The Cure and maybe a pinch of Neu.
Invasionen is Dennis Lyxzen on Vocals and Guitar. (The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Refused, Ac4, The Lost Patrol Band and more) Andre Sandström on drums and vocals. (Tristess, The Vicious, Ds-13, The Lost Patrol Band and more) Anders Stenberg on guitar and vocals. (Deportess, Lykke Li, The Lost Patrol Band and more. And newcomer Richard Österman on bass.

INSTITUTE "subordination" (Sacred Bones) - 18€ (Clear)
Institute are back with Subordination, a rough and raucous record with roots in the anarcho-punk tradition. The lyrics are concerned with the power constructs of American society — traditional masculinity, the cops, the government — and a takedown of the feeble reasoning that keeps outmoded, controlling systems in place. No, it’s not new thematic territory for punk rock, but the men of Institute manage to kick out the jams in a way that sounds timely and fresh. If you like your punk gritty, dark, and intelligent, Subordination is well worth your time.

KURO "hardcore damnation 1983 - 1986" (Noise Not Music) - 13€
As one of the greatest Japanese hardcore bands ever, Kuro has long been a favorite for those who want their hardcore laden with an extreme edge; for the time their sound was wildly chaotic, raw, distorted, and violently thrashed, ranking right beside fellow heavyweights GISM and CONFUSE when it comes to timeless Japanese hardcore of the early to mid-'80s. This 15 track LP collects several incredibly rare releases: their debut live 7" flexi from 1983, the scorching "Who the Helpless" EP, the "Fire" 7", and their tracks from the "Pinch and Ouch" compilation.

LEATHERFACE "mush" (Self Released) – 16€ (Dirty Yellow Vinyl, Limited to 100)
Taking their name from the cult classic horror film, 90s underground punk icons, Leatherface, were stalwarts of the UK scene, arriving at a time many thought that brand of brash songwriting had had its day. Re-writing the rule book when it came to punk requisites; passion; angst and power combined with undeniable songwriting and technical prowess. Led by the impassioned and emotive wordsmith Frankie Stubbs, it made them one of the most exhilarating bands of their time.
Hailing from the industrial town of Sunderland, Leatherface formed in 1988. With a line-up consisting of Stubbs, guitarist Dickie Hammond, bass player Stuart Schooler and drummer Andrew Laing. Stubbs’ rasping vocals complimented the explosive hooks and thrashing guitars, which quickly became their trademark.
Following on from 1989’s ‘Cherry Knowle’, 1990 saw the band sign to Fire and release the fierce and defining, ‘Fill Your Boots’. With Stubbs and Hammond beginning to collaborate more on songwriting, it also introduced new bassist Rob Turnball. (Breaking in a new bass player every album would quickly become a trend for the band.) From this album ‘Razor Blades And Aspirin’ and ‘Peasant in Paradise’ would remain in their repertoire for over twenty years. With ‘Fill Your Boots’ proving a success, later that year they would go on to produce the Smokey Joe EP.
However it was 1991’s follow-up ‘Mush’ that’s continually been regarded as an absolute punk classic. Teaming up with engineer Paul Tipler (who also worked on Stereolab and Chapterhouse), ‘Mush’ was recorded in Greenhouse Studios in North London (owned by Pat Collier of The Vibrators). Following praise from the music press, they soon found themselves doing John Peel and Mark Radcliffe sessions.
Gaining attention throughout the UK and with popularity in the US on the horizon with ‘Mush’, ‘Minx’ was released in 1993. Arriving at the peak of their powers it would also be on the brink of their first hiatus. Channelling Stubbs’ love for Joy Division, the new album had a more emotional direction, in contrast to the group’s earlier recordings. Recorded in Stubbs’ home studio, ‘Minx’ came with the addition of their much loved fourth bassist, former Snuff band member Andy Crichton. The album has since been considered a lost classic by the band’s rabid followers.

LEATHERFACE "minx" (Roughneck Recording Company) - 14€
Leatherface were formed by legendary singer, guitarist and songwriter Frankie Stubbs in Sunderland in the late 1980's, and immediately made an impression on the British scene with their Tom Waits meets Replacements meets Stiff Little Fingers sound. 1993's "Minx" isn't quite up to the standards of its predecessor (maybe something to do with two members of the band leaving shortly after its completion), but its still pretty damn fantastic, especially due to the inclusion of tracks like the aforementioned "Do The Right Thing", "Pale Moonlight" and the beautiful "Skin Deep". The LP comes with 2 bonus sonx which are taken from the bonus EP Promo Single. This edition was available only through the "Chain With No Name" group of independent record shops in the UK. Includes 2 Songs from the free Hyper-Limited 7" Single, originaly came with the first pressing. Inserts fold-out sleeve with lyrics & pictures.

LEATHERFACE "more mush" (The Hype Recording Company ) - 12€
Great compilation with long time sold out records. The compilation contains the following records: "Smokey Joe" 12", "Not Superstitious" 12", "I Want The Moon" EP and their classic "Compact And Bijou" 10".

LIP CREAM "kill ugly pop" (Fan Club) - 14€
Lip Cream alongside Gauze stand out as one of the classic early Japanese punk bands that incorporated a lot of hardcore and thrash influence into their powerful music. Lip Cream later went on to release a number of highly successful albums and instead of sticking to the more boppy punk sound they originally produced headed towards flat out heavy thrash that too is worthy of merit.
This LP was originally released in 1986.

LIP CREAM "kill the ibm + bonus" (Fan Club) - 11
Lip Cream alongside Gauze stand out as one of the classic early Japanese punk bands that incorporated a lot of hardcore and thrash influence into their powerful music. Lip Cream later went on to release a number of highly successful albums and instead of sticking to the more boppy punk sound they originally produced headed towards flat out heavy thrash that too is worthy of merit. This LP contains all of Lip Creams recorded output from 1984 - 1985. Tracks A1 to A4 were previously released as the "Lonely rock" 7" on Hold-Up Records in 1984. Tracks A5 to A9 were previously released as the "Nightrider More Than Fight" 7" on AA Records in 1984. Tracks A10 and B1 were previously released on the "Hardcore Unlawful Assembly" Compilation LP on AA records in 1984. Tracks B2 to B9 are from the "Kill The I.B.M." studio sessions from 1985. Tracks B10 and B11 were previously released on "The Punx" Compilation in 1985.

LYCANTROPHY st (Power It Up) LP - 10€
This blistering bit of czech fastcore is the perfect musical whirlwind to redirect any of your bubbling anger into. 20 tunes in barely 18 minutes is ultra-breezy for an actual full length album but this stuff is a pure concentrate of rage without any boring extra filling so you shouldn't feel short-changed. I'm guessing 22 minutes is probably the average length for a Lycanthrophy liveset! The female vocals bring about undeniable appeal, this lady's bloodcurdling shrieks are definitely impressive and her range of screaming rage suits me perfectly (not as shrill as most female grind vocalists I've heard so far!). You're also getting pissed off male back-up barking as well. Crushingly fast and sharp drum blasts, a massive barrage of grinding riffs with a thick, heavy low-tuned guitar sound, just solid, steadily grinding songs; this stuff is maybe going too fast to truly make a lasting impression, this is a spur of the moment, speed-ball of frenzy going at a hundred miles an hour, so a lot of the songs kind of blur together for me. The band is maybe guilty of overkilling it with the breakdown effect too, with the sound completely fading out/cutting off, I usually dig this stuff but it can get a little gimmicky at times... The sound production is very polished and very impactful. It could also use some more rawness in my opinion but otherwise I think I'll keep this cd handy to put on whenever I feel a little stressed out. This is clearly some of the most effective and fastest, screaming type of grind out there! I'm really digging the artwork, and there's an alternate black and white cover art plus a complete lyrics sheet in english language (and the vocals actually seem to stick to the lyrics closely, most of the time!) Sick cover art handled by SF&L homie Jeff Metal Sayers from WASTOID. The Limited repress contains one bonustrack.

MISSBRUKARNA "zooma in en zombie" (Skrammel) - 13€
Complete recordings of this great and seminal Swedish hardcore punk band of the early 1980s!

 Tracks B18 to B20 recorded live in concert in 1987 @ Forsa Studio, previously unreleased.

NEUROOT "right is might" (Havoc) - 10€
Deluxe reissue of this long lost material from 1980's Dutch hardcore band Neuroot. Many people know this band from their killer 7" and appearance on the "Peace" comp. Recorded 1985 at Emma in Amsterdam, this studio session was meant to be the Neuroot side of the split LP with Fratricide on Pusmort. Pushead pressed 25 test pressings of this LP but never put it into production, making it one of the rarest hardcore records of the 1980s. This is repressed as a 45 RPM 12", gatefold sleeve and sweet '80s style layout (no half-assed pixelated cover art here).

THE PLASMATICS "new hope for the wretched" (Radiation) - 15€
The Plasmatics may not fit on everyone’s list of great forgotten bands, and you’d have a hard time finding anyone who calls 1980’s New Hope for the Wretched a forgotten classic. But, New Hope is a driving metal album of pure shocking filth. It sounds like Motorhead fronted by a female singer, and not just any female singer. It’s Wendy fuckin’ O. Williams. She is the queen of shock rock. Frankly, I’m not even a fan of shock rock, or generally 80’s rock at all, but the Plasmatics play it loud, reckless, and frenzied, allowing the punk in me to take hold of the sound. If you have any interest in 80’s punk or heavy metal, than New Hope for the Wretched needs to be in your collection.

POISON GIRLS "chappaquiddick bridge" LP + ONE SIDED EP/7" (Water Wing) - 15€
Chappaquiddick Bridge, the bands first full length LP, was originally released on Crass Records in 1980 and featured the same lineup as HEX. And like Hex, it shared the producer/engineer team of Penny Rimbaud and John Loder. This record sees Poison Girls at their most experimental stage. The songs dig deeper into the connections between the personal and political. Starting with an uncredited version of ‘State Control’ (one of the bands punkiest crowd pleasers) done in an ‘unplugged’ style, and ending with the similarly stripped down ‘Tender Lover’, this album broke all the rules of what a ’punk’ album should sound like. The songs are long. There are extended sonic workouts and codas, using synths, abused studio effects, electric violin, acoustic piano as well as ‘random’ electric guitar sounds and vocals. The mix has thundering drums up front that power the songs, and help create a barrage of rich sound.The lyrics speak of love, power, sexual politics, war and peace and most things in between. This is Vi at her most poetic, but with a razor sharp insight, and not holding back on using it. A truly original album. If it was removed, lost or destroyed, your original copy of Chappaquiddick Bridge came with a one-sided flexi disc containing the anthem "Statement". This 2014 reissue also includes "Statement" as a proper one-sided 7" vinyl. Sturdy tip-on gatefold cover.

POISON IDEA "blank blackout vacant" (Fan Club) - 12€
Though not quite the shotgun blast of an album that its predecessor, "Feel the Darkness", was, "Blank Blackout Vacant" is nonetheless an ample testimony to Poison Idea's unbridled power and force. Suffused with enough hate, pain, and rage to fuel an entire army, Jerry A.'s vocals, positively dripping with bile and venom, certainly cement his ideas with passion and force. "Understated" is not a word that is possible to use with this band. Poison Idea, from their inception in the very early '80s through their terminal point, shone with bitter, violent power. Unlike most Poison Idea albums from the '80s, "Blank Blackout Vacant" doesn't rely on speed to get its point across. In fact, a song like "Forever and Always," with its loose, Aerosmith-like groove and its saxophone, presages the type of rock & roll that bands like Rocket from the Crypt would make years later. Many other songs reside in the same vein. The cover of the New York Dolls' "Vietnamese Baby" provides an interesting touch, amping up the original, while retaining its desperate, low-rent feeling. While not quite the bellowing, fire-breathing beast that is "Feel the Darkness", "Blank Blackout Vacant" is a more varied, eclectic piece of work from this veteran American hardcore band.

POISON IDEA "ian mackaye" (Fan Club) – 10€
Fan club reissue of the 'Get Loaded And Fuck' cassette (1988), which compiled the 'Filthkick E.P.' 7" EP (minus one track, 'New Rose'), 'Getting The Fear' 12" (1989) and 1 new track (B3 'Burned For The Last Time').

PUKE "back to the puke age" (New Prejudice a2o) – 16€
Re issue of the classic LP by Puke from 1987. Puke played melodic, fast paced slightly metallic punk in the late 80's with a sound that set them apart from more hardcore bands like Anti Cimex and Crude SS or more straight forward punk bands like Asta Kask and Strebers. This re issue contains the LP and the song off Really Fast volume 4.

PUKE / SVART PARAD - split (New Prejudice a2o) - 16€
Two demos from Svart Parad, the "Back to the 30s" 7" and comp tacks from Puke. Classic Swedish Hardcore, this complements the Puke and Svart Parad Lps on the same label. Raw, no frills mangel HC the real Swedish way, all stuff recorded in the mid 80s. The great thing of this split compilatio is that even if with different approaches (Svart Prad being more on the raw and filthy side of things, Puke more on the catchy one), both bands are very connected in attitude and smash-factor.
Svart Parad side:
A1 to A9 demo #1 "Myteri" (1984).
A10 to A12 demo #3 "En Dåres Dikt" (1985).
Puke side:
B1 & B2 "Vägra Anpassning" comp. CD.

SEX DRIVE - s/t (Crucial Response) - 10€
Named after the classic NECROS song, SEX DRIVE from Holland plays raw and primitive hardcore inspired by bands like DIE KREUZEN, SSD and VOID. Not interested in creating a carbon copy of any of these bands. Expect no nonsense, no gimmicks, no posturing. Just fist pumping riffs, ferocious drumming and snarling, demented vocals. This is furious, relentless fast early '80s hardcore that leaves nothing but chaos in your head.

SOCIAL DISTORTION "white light, white heat, white trash" (Fan Club) - 12€
In 1996 Social Distortion released their 5th album, White Light, White Heat, White Trash. The line-up featured a new drummer Chuck Biscuits (Black Flag/Danzig and many more). White Light, White Heat, White Trash was the last album with Dennis Danell on guitar (he sadly died in February 2000).
The album received Social Distortion's highest ever chart position, entering the Billboard 200 album chart at #27. It also includes radio favourites "I Was Wrong", "When The Angels Sing" and a superb cover version of the Stones' "Under My Thumb".
Stylistically, the album is harder and considered a return to their hardcore punk roots. Social Distortion is nothing less than a legend in the punk genre and still continues to receive worldwide respect and support.  Comes with insert.

SOCIAL DISTORTION "sex, love and rock 'n' roll" (Fan Club) - 12€ (Red Vinyl)
Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth album by American punk rock band Social Distortion. It is their first studio album in eight years, since the release of White Light, White Heat, White Trash in 1996, the longest gap between Social Distortion's studio albums to date. The album was originally scheduled to be released in the fall of 2000, but was not yet completed, and it was officially released on September 28, 2004. A great deal of the album is a musical eulogy to former guitarist Dennis Danell, who died in 2000. The album's opening track, "Reach for the Sky", was released in late 2004 and became one of Social Distortion's biggest hits. Comes with insert.

SPECTRES "nothing to nowhere" (Sabotage) - 12€
“Nothing to Nowhere” is the Spectre’s second full length release, following up 2010′s “Last Days. This new record features ten songs that explore a range of influences from early west coast punk to British post-punk and anarcho, early death rock and new wave.

SPINE "time has gone" (Assault) - 12€
After almost 2 years in the making, the debut SPINE LP is here at last. 14 songs of pure muscle including a new and improved re-recorded demo track. While the previous SPINE material was slightly more Boston HC influenced, this material heads more in the direction of INFEST and YOUTH OF TODAY while still retaining that SSD flavor. Don't miss out on SPINE'S best record to date...this shit will tear you apart.

SS DECONTROL "the kids will have their say" (Suicida Discos) - 14€

One of THE classics of the early 80s hardcore scene. Printed lyric insert included. 

THE STALIN "discography 1982-1984" (Fan Club) DOUBLE LP – 18
The Stalin began in 1980 and blew away all previous attempts at Japanese punk rock with their radical, evolving style. The band was founded by Michiro Endo, a 32 year-old socialist activist, Vietnam veteran, and street singer who had spent time in the West. He chose the name because "the name Stalin is very hated by most people in Japan, so it is very good for our image." Because he was a socialist, he also explained the name as meaning "the downside of every good idea." I highly recommend the Stalin to everyone., their early albums are classics. This double LP compilation includes their 'Stop Jap" LP (1982), Mushi LP (1983), Go Go 12" (1983) and compilation songs from "welcome to 1984".

UPROAR "and the lord said “let there be!” (Dr. Strange) - 16€
UPROAR, a small town punk band that made an impact on the UK82 scene, despite not playing larger cities, signed to Beat the System Records in 1982, and were featured on the Total Anarchy compilation alongside label mates One Way System and External Menace.

“And the Lord Said Let There Be!” is UPROAR’s first full length release, clocking in at just under an hour, and was originally released on Beat the System Records in 1983.

Orginally released in 2007, and now finally repressed in North America. "prey to the world" is more back to the roots with wolves, skulls and bulletbelts - musicwise it's also back to the days of "allday hell" and "lycantro punk".

Sound & Fury is the first studio album released by the American punk rock band Youth Brigade. It was released in 1982 and was followed in 1983 by an album of the same name that included re-recorded versions of some tracks. Sound & Fury was originally recorded at Mystic Studios in Hollywood, California in July 1982 with engineer Steve Brenner. However, during the Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tour with Social Distortion (as chronicled in the documentary Another State of Mind) in the summer of 1982, which marked their first national tour, Youth Brigade realized that they were disappointed with Sound & Fury and stopped the pressing at only 800 copies, most of which they sold on the tour. After the end of the Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tour, the band returned home and decided to record a second album titled Sound & Fury, keeping only four tracks from the original version. This is fanclub rerelease of the first version of the famous 'Sound & Fury' LP.

18 songs from their Demo, Litovsk split, UVPR compilation song, Desert Urbain, BMAB single serie and Urban Savage split. It is coming in a gatefold jackets with awesome drawing by All Cats Are Grey
France’s Syndrome 81 started gaining momentum in the Punk scene with their 2013 demo tape, drawing comparisons to the plethora of great bands that defined the French Oi sound of the 1980s with a heavy stomp culled from classic USHC. The band has progressed since then, and the sound is more diverse but also more defined, having filed off some of the American influences and moved in a darker, distinctly French direction that is both melancholy and anthemic, with lyrics being influenced by growing up in Brest, France. The band comes from this dark place and write songs about their personal struggles growing up and growing old. These are songs about watching your friends lose sight and move on while you question why you are still here, haunted by your past and having to look your former self in the eye while you apologize for who you’ve become. These are songs about trudging through a desert you built yourself.

U.B.R. ‎"se en lep dan za umret" (Rest In Punk) Lp - 13€

Hardcore/Punk the way is should be. Five new songs, more punkish this time. 200 copies with yellow cover and 70 copies with red. Αφιερωμένο στον αδερφό μας Βαγγέλη Κ, που έφυγε νωρίς.

RAT CAGE "blood on your boots” (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6
The Ratman is back with yet another dose of first-calibre hardcore. Taking cues from the golden age of International hardcore punk circa 83 and with eyes fixed on the late TOTALITÄR, this madman manages to write and record four new anthems, which follow the trail of destruction left by his first EP last year. Do not expect many changes, there is the same fixation with HEADCLEANERS, DISARM and Swedish Käng. The same political content than their previous output, a fresh and sharp look at contemporary world affairs somehow missed in current punk.
Blood on Your Boots was written and performed by Bryan Suddaby, and recorded and mixed by J. Fidler. Like previous releases it comes housed in a pocket sleeve designed by Mylo “Mangel” Oxlo and includes a lyric insert
.


SIAL "binasa” (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6
Following up on their fantastic 7-track 12” from last year, Singapore's SIAL is back with Binasa, a new 6-track 7" with a Malay title that translates to 'Perish'. Binasa sees the band pushing their cacophony of urgent and raw hardcore punk to the red. It takes cues from the likes of COMES, CONFUSE or LEBENDEN TOTEN but makes sure their ferocious sound and message doesn’t get lost in the noise. Their new release is a feast of ripping buzzsaw guitar, ferocious drumming and a vocalist spitting hate towards a racist, classist society that doesn't protect the interests of the marginalised.
Recording this time around was done in their own collective studio space, Project 416 with Mastering done by Will Killingsworth and cover artwork by their drummer Izzad.

LP
ΜΑΥΡΟ ΓΑΛΑ "hands // tired" (Sweet Ohm Recordings / Nothing to Harvest /Underground Union Crew / Μαύρο Γάλα) - 12
Post hardcore/screamo απο Αθήνα.

ΣΚΟΤΟΔΙΝΗ - st (Self Released) - 10

"Skotodini’s hometown is a beautiful but very isolated city of the Greek west, called Ioannina. This place has never been really the home of Greek punk but these young anarcho-punks have managed to bring this area on surface, with various projects they’ve been involved in, and make it a must-stop for touring bands visiting Greece. As Ivan Shentov already mentioned, they self-record, self-produce and self-release all their music and I really admire this passion which definitely is radiated in their unique dark punk and female-fronted sound, including constant guitar shredding and super catchy parts. They have two full-lengths with melodies you should really be aware of!"

ACCUSED "archive tapes" (Unrest) DOUBLE LP - 15
The ACCUSED 34-song 'Archive Tapes' 2xLP reveals early teen-punk roots, including early demo tracks of vintage 'Splatter Rock' and the creeping metal-influence! Humbling outtakes! Candid rehearsal sessions! Live 'bootlegs' and extensive liner notes. Comes in a nice gatefold cover. Splatterheads BEWARE!!!

BETA BOYS "late night acts" (Erste Theke Tonträger) - 13
17 track discography LP. Includes every single recorded BIB track ever. Everything from Demo 2015 - POP - The Face - Mosh Pit on one 12" record.
Olympia, WA 's own Beta Boys are back with more songs in the form of a LP. Since their demo tape (that came out in 2014) and several EPs they have had a lot of time to develop the sound that truly makes them betas. Leaving their aggressive hardcore style in the past, they play more of "Hell Comes To Your House" style songs, more rock`n`roll with a graveyard guitar boogie and a punk Screamin' Jay Hawkins on vocals.
For those of you keeping count this is our second release from Washington's state capital. Time to set up a field office because I don't see this town slowing down anytime soon. Look out Atlanta there's a new contender for the crown. This time around we’ve got Olympia scuzz punks Beta Boys. Following stellar releases on Lumpy, Neck Chop, Total Punk and Goodbye Boozy, they are back with their best outing yet.
Beta Boys have a sound that is a call back to when punk was fresh without sounding like a boring rehash band. All of their songs have a rhythmic echo that stays in your head for days after hearing it. The inconsistent sloppy delivery over a classic mid-tempo 80s punk sound make for an excellent combination. This band fills all the void in your records right now.
It's funny, when you first listen to them, Beta Boys sound like a fairly typical hardcore band, but the more you pay attention the more you realize that they really have managed to stake out their own particular aesthetic. Their songs are fast but not too fast, and the guitars have a chorus effect on them but they never sound too over-the-top goth-y... the descriptions for one of their records mentioned Hell Comes to Your House-style punk, and while I've never heard that mentioned as a genre before, it kind of makes sense...
Beta Boys do fit somewhere on the same part of the punk spectrum occupied by 45 Grave's punkier moments (like the track "Already Dead"), Christian Death, Legal Weapon, and Modern Warfare. In an age when every band seems to break up after just a demo and some 7"s, it's refreshing to hear a band grow a little bit more and really develop their own voice. Here's hoping they continue to push forward, and until then I'll be spinning this LP quite a bit.
A strikingly focused and sonically refined tour de force, these ten new tracks pair the band's Midwestern hardcore roots with a darker, midtempo burn. A pure punk sound if there ever was; precisely capturing the boredom, depression, and ever-present sense of hopelessness spread across modern America. Beta Boys have truly upped the ante on this full length; an album absolutely brimming with stellar production, first-rate songwriting, and unapollegetically punk flavor. Packaged in a full color jacket with artwork from Beta Boys' own Hank Durango.

BELGRADO "siglo XXI" (La Vida Es Un Mus) – 16€
Barcelona's Belgrado return with their second album 'Siglo XXI' and first for La Vida Es Un Mus. The 11 track album melds dark and dreamy goth and post punk with a stunning and clear production. The bass leads and drives each track into the batcave whilst the vocals yearn and ache on top. This record has a clear 80's English influence (Killing Joke, Vex, A Touch of Hysteria, Blood and Roses etc) but it also very modern day Barcelona with the reverb as important as an instrument and totally DIY. 2011's excellent self titled LP has been bettered in sound, production and song. The LP comes in a thick black and white sleeve with artwork from drummer Jonathan also including a 30x30 insert, an extra lyric sheet and a 40x55 poster.

BIB "a band in hardcore (discography)" (Erste Theke Tonträger) - 13
For their second release on ETT, Omaha-based BIB continues their streak of making sketchy-as-hell hardcore punk for straight up weirdos. This is a Compilation LP, this rules, ok!
When you hear Omaha, Nebraska, you might think of steak, Warren Buffet, or Saddle Creek Records. But you probably don’t think of hardcore. In comes BIB. Noisey, blown out hardcore from the middle of nowhere. Following the “everything louder than everything else approach” to their demo, Bibs already colossal riffs sound like an avalanche when the bottom drops. Squirmy effected vocals veer their sound from huge to weird. Live, sometimes seen with 3 guitar players, Bib takes their wall of sound to a whole new level that will leave your eardrums vibrating.
BIB continues their wall of noise style production on this compilation release, with delayed vocals that sound like they're being tossed off of a mountain. BIB mixes quick, full chord riffs with crushing breakdowns. Vocals weave between child like shrill barks, primordial grunts, and pressure reducing singing.
The straight ahead, downstroke pounding demo has been compared to the likes of Hoax mixed with Pissed Jeans, this EP is one step over! This band slays harder than riot police at a G8 summit.

THE CONEHEADS "L​.​P​.​1." (Erste Theke Tonträger) - 13€
The NWI scene is on another level to the rest of humanity. Oh yes, it's going to get weird once you put this shit on. Coneheads are a basement punk band who have decided to douse themselves in creepy circus riffs, robot meets alien vocals with science-fiction wackyness. Keep in mind, it's still punk and damn catchy! Who said weird can't be catchy?
They sound like DOW JONES AND THE INDUSTRIALS on speed or a more manic DEVO. This would perfectly fit in 1982 but I doubt they were born before 92. Major points for historical awareness! The rhythm barrels along while solos are interspersed at six second intervals, desperately played like a blur between a Jerry Lee Richard piano solo and a fevered banjo picker who lives in an Appalachian cave. It's hard to find the line between cheap gimmick and true weirdness sometimes, but this one shows that line with every spin. This band is highly addictive and leaves you stunned!


CONSTANT MONGREL "living in excellence" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 16
Formed in 2009 Constant Mongrel begun as a two piece (Tom Ridgewell and Hugh Young) creating immediate and at times improvised songs in an old dishevelled laundry in inner city Melbourne. Inspired by the more flamboyant side of protopunk such as Electric Eels and Chrome, over the next few years the band added members Amy Hill (bass) and Andrew Murray (guitar) building upon their intense sound and developing a unique humour. Consisting of members from Terry, Woollen Kits, Nun and Taco Leg, Constant Mongrel has several previous releases on RIP Society Records and Siltbreeze Records.
After three years since their last release Constant Mongrel have developed a diverse collection of songs gradually over time. Recorded in the summer of 2017 in a studio, produced by Tom Hardisty and Mastered by Mikey Young, ‘Living In Excellence’ brings a more formed sound and aesthetic with striking riffs and catchy rolling bass over an often unhinged, vibrant rhythm section. Added for this on particular tracks is a fried, effected saxophone with warm synths and analogue sounds added to enhance the LP’s thoughtful textures.
The new record has a sharper British Post Punk expression reminiscent of the usual suspects in Wire, Blitz, The Mob, Siekiera and The Fall, while also exploring elements found outside of the genre from Les Rallizes Dénudés to Youth Crew Hardcore to Country music and beyond, there's greater depth and sensibility found amongst the angst.
James Vinciguerra (of Total Control fame) designed the cover which is a perfect depiction of this modern day punk record with its sharpness, colour and feeling of slight discomfort.
The bands lyrics and themes vary in subject matter. Songs of certain romance, the monotonousness of self-loathing, the joy of a riot, atrocity of western religion, an abundance of a fresh modern fascism, white-middle-class-self-entitled guilt and the beauty in misinterpretation. But behind every idea the tongue remains continually in cheek as the bands humor seeps through and prevails in its sound.
The truth is that none of us are truly Living In Excellence and this false mantra is prominent throughout a record that is over flowing with character, bleak satire and grunt.
‘Living In Excellence’ will be available on LP and digitally through La Vida Es Un Mus in Europe and North America and Anti Fade in Australia from Friday 21 September.

GAG "america's greatest hits" (Erste Theke Tontrager) - 13€
Your favorite mid-tempo manglers are back and you should hold on to your fucking shit because this noisy hardcore punk outfit will make you want to fight someone. GAG is from Olympia WA and bring deranged, distorted and noisy hardcore with strength and anger. This record is a continuous attack on your senses. And I mean that in the best possible way! Ferocious dissonant hardcore focused in intensity and all-out rage. Experimental hardcore, an album of feedback and reverb drenched punk. A storming sea full of noise, with delayed waves!
Our friends at sorry state said: I've loved this band pretty much from the beginning, but "Locker Room" just blows away their previous records with heavy, spot-on production and a complete sense of recklessness that very, very few bands are capable of capturing on record. Much like Gay Kiss and Avon Ladies, Gag at their best have this way of combining the meathead brutality of Hoax with something more dissonant, uncomfortable and exciting. Basically, what that means is that the bass player is playing a total pit-clearing riff while the guitar player(s?) just wail out with sheets of noise over the top. A simple formula, perhaps, but one that is executed to perfection here. This is the type of band you expect to see people emerging from the pit bruised and bloody after watching them.

MARBLED EYE "leisure" (Erste Theke Tonträger) - 13
Debut LP from this Bay Area, California band whose EP we raved and released about a while back, and now that they’re on vinyl full lenght, we still love them. To me, Marbled Eye sound like the perfect mix of Total Control and Parquet Courts. Like both of those bands, Marbled Eye have a way of combining a Krautrock-style groove with angular, Wire-esque post-punk style riffing and wrapping the whole thing up in great pop songwriting.
While their hooks aren’t quite as big as the most memorable moments of the bands I just compared them to, I feel like that’s by design. Even though this is a LP, it’s so grooved out that it feels like a record you put on and get lost in the atmosphere of rather than putting on to pump your fist and sing along. This band is absolutely killer, and I feel like it’s only a matter of time before they’re as big as the two bands I just compared them to, so grab this LP and get in on the ground floor. The Austin band Institute pairs numbing and rigid post-punk with a Krautrock vibe, and the pairing turns out to be perversely appealing.
Flouting Rockist conventions with equal doses of stark minimalism and plodding fury, these post-punks resolutely refuse the "post" prefix. MARBLED EYE slithers effortlessly across genre boundaries, drawing upon myriad eras and localities. The Units, Neu!, Wire, Television, CRISIS, and contemporary sounds from the Australian garage rock subterrain like TOTAL CONTROL or INSTITUTE and DIÄT all come to mind. If you are familiar with the MARBLED EYE demo, you will be fanatic about this new LP.
They lean towards the punk side of post-punk. They recall Crisis & Coitus Int. with a mix of anarcho bands thrown in there, too, and create a fascinating tension, a palpable struggle between their inner selves and their music that demands to be heard. As sharp as the band's earlier work, but you can hear that they climbed the next step with this new EP. Expertly tight and catchy drumming, cold as ice, monotone, pitch perfect post-punk vocals and a rhythm section that would make anyone jealous.
This is just a captivating listen the whole way through, the kind of record I can put on and just watch the turntable spinning, getting lost in its intricacies.


PRIORS - st (La Vida En Us Mus) - 15€
Howling and screaming like an acid trip gone wrong - Melbourne’s PRIORS punch to the surface with 9 ultra-bombastic cuts of relentless hardcore! Channeling the raw ferocity of groups like KAAOS and VAURIO with the dark and driving melodies of LAMA - PRIORS inject enough character and attitude to establish this sound as a beast entirely of their own creation. A frightening mix of breakneck melodies and cacophonous destruction! Featuring members from a circle of Australian bands quickly making their mark on the international scene (including SISTEMA EN DECADENCIA, EXECUTION, HELTA SKELTA, and NERVE) this LP was one of the first to be started and last to be finished. Over 3 years in the making from conception to delivery Priors are set to launch their debut 12” through No Patience Records in Australia and La Vida Es Un Mus worldwide. A slab of wax that hits like a wrecking ball – impossible to ignore! Includes A2 poster. Australians customers please hit NO PATIENCE for copies.

Formed in 2003 by members of Evergreen Terrace, Casey Jones play a heavy, melodic and well-produced brand of straight edge hardcore in the same vein as Comeback Kid. This is their third and final full-length.


THE DAGGER EYES "the dagger eyes (reapers)" (Prugelprinz) - 7€
They are a fairly new Ottawa, Canada group. Features former members of the SUPPOSITORIES. They are incredible live, and their recordings are exactly what people want to hear. It's punk, aggressive, but not dry hardcore...this is mega catchy punk-rock, with vicious attitude! Pressed on black wax and fixed in black & white/silver super cool artwork created by Bree Crosby. Keep it simple! Keep it punk!

WRONG HOLE "2012" (Prugelprinz) - 5€
New band from Nick Flanagan "vocals" (BRUTAL KNIGHTS, TEEN CRUD COMBO, KILLER ELITE, COME) and Andrew Moszynski "guitar, drum programming" (QUEST FOR FIRE, DEADLY SNAKES, KILLER ELITE) and Jon Schouten "Synth" (TEENAGER). It's a bit of a departure from BK but still pretty fun. Enjoy!


YOUTH BRIGADE “sound & fury - first version" (Euro Fan) – 10€
Sound & Fury is the first studio album released by the American punk rock band Youth Brigade. It was released in 1982 and was followed in 1983 by an album of the same name that included re-recorded versions of some tracks. Sound & Fury was originally recorded at Mystic Studios in Hollywood, California in July 1982 with engineer Steve Brenner. However, during the Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tour with Social Distortion (as chronicled in the documentary Another State of Mind) in the summer of 1982, which marked their first national tour, Youth Brigade realized that they were disappointed with Sound & Fury and stopped the pressing at only 800 copies, most of which they sold on the tour. After the end of the Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tour, the band returned home and decided to record a second album titled Sound & Fury, keeping only four tracks from the original version. This is fanclub rerelease of the first version of the famous 'Sound & Fury' LP. This also includes bonus tracks from their first EP, old outtakes and a song from the demo. 19 songs of essential anthemic and melodic hardcore.

ARMS RACE "the beast" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
ARMS RACE follow up to their “New Wave Of British Hardcore” LP with four new tracks, which sees the band solidify their place as one of the strongest pillars of UK hardcore. Touring Europe and Japan since the release of the LP, these 4 new tracks are yet more proof of why the band leaves a trail of fans whenever they play. “The Beast” displays a ferocious hardcore attack with both boots firmly stuck on the hardcore and punk territories while looking forward to new soundscapes on which they evolve, such as on track 'Distort Britannia' that showcases a slowed down atmospheric stomper. Part classic USA Hardcore, part Bristol and Stoke On Trent punk, these new tracks are a perfect continuation of what the band has created during these last 5 years.
The Beast comes housed in a pocket sleeve with artwork by bass player and LVEUM shitworker Nicky Rat and includes a lyric insert and download code.

BRAIN SLUG "distort new york" (Hardware) - 5
"Distort New York" is the debut 7" by BRAIN SLUG. This one will get you 5 nasty slaps in the face taking influence from Boston classics like SS DECONTROL or newer bands like OMEGAS.


CHRONICLE A/D "enough rats in the walls... and the empires fall" (Hyperrealist) - 4€
This three piece features members and ex-members of Antischism, Initial State and Karst playing a powerful mix of dark, brooding hardcore and classic peace punk with dual vocals and definite political overtones.


CHRONICLE A/D "bloodsport war" (Loder Brock) - 4€
This is the second 7” from this amazing Savannah 3 piece, and it picks up right where the first one left off. This band features current members of KARST, and ex-members of ANTISCHISM and INITIAL STATE just to name a few. Take everything you would expect from members of those bands, and amplify it by 10, and that’s what you get here. You can feel the passion and sincerity of this band literally oozing off your turntable. The music is energetic and aggressive with the tempo ranging from fast and thrashing to heavy and haunting, with a touch of melody thrown in here and there, even a bit of a dark metallic feel at times. The drumming is unmatched, franticly banging out speedy beats, switching to heavier parts with almost a rhythmic tribal feel. All the singers compliment each other well, with shrill and urgent vocals dueling with harsher, deeper vocals, all blending together just right. And the lyrics aren’t your run of the mill songs about how war and government are bad, (though that is mostly what they’re about) they are extremely biting and poetic, yet still very pissed off, with tons of conviction, enthusiasm and heartfelt sincerity. The packaging is top notch as well, with a screened cardstock sleeve and more awesome artwork by Jeremy Clark. This is one of the best bands going right now!


OMEGAS "ny terminator" (Painkiller) - 5€
The Omegas latest 5-song E.P. helps to make the longstanding case, that at any given time, there will always be a couple good French Canadian bands (VioVod; Capitalist Alienation; etc.). This band is the New York Montreal connection (look it up) performing the kind of tunefully skanktastic cuts made famous by basically any band on the NY Thrash comp in 1982. It's 2011 though, and Painkiller brings you another slab of Omega-ish braincell smashing destruction.


ZYKLOME A / MORAL DEMOLITION "repression" - split (Noise and Distortion) - 6€
Early 80's HC/punk from Belgium, official reissue of the 1983 released split E.P. on Punk ETC.

LP
AGNOSTIC FRONT "something's gotta give" (Strenght) - 15€
Agnostic Front's classic album from 1998 re-issued in a glossy gatefold. Officially licensed from Epitaph.

BLITZ "voice of generation" (Radiation) – 15€
Raw, violent and catchy, Blitz's 1982 debut album sounded like a shot of pure rock and roll through the violence of the English working class. Made up by two punks and two skinheads, with a lot to say about violence and football, Blitz appealed to all kinds of lowlifes, who finally had a voice for their generation. 180 gram vinyl reissue with printed inner sleeve, contains 3 bonus tracks: Voice of Generation from V/A Total Noise, Nation on Fire and Youth from V/A "Carry on Oi". Total classic.


EVEN WORSE "lost album" (Radiation) - 15€
On 180-GRAM VINYL, this is the (previously unreleased on vinyl) LOST ALBUM by pre-NYHC outfit Even Worse. The line-up featured Big Takeover magazine editor Jack Rabid (and previously Beastie Boys' founder John Berry and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore in a later incarnation). These very early '80s recordings were co-produced by Bad Brains and there are additional live tracks from 1981.


GASMASK/COWARD - split (Fan Club) - 14
This cool split collects the recorded works of two very feral and raucous Japanese hardcore bands from the '80s, Gasmask and Coward. Both bands hailed from Osaka, and originally released EPs on the Skeleton label. The Gasmask portion of this record contains their amazing 7" EP, two live songs, an unreleased track and two collaborations with Coward called Cowmask. On the Coward portion you get their 7" EP (sometimes called Voice), which was posted here way back when the Hearse first rolled out of the garage. You also get two tracks from the Ninngenn Omnibus compilation, some live stuff, and three collaborations with Gasmask called Gasward. Both bands are absolutely crazy great!

THE KIDS - st (Radiation) – 15€
Hailing from Antwerp, Belgium, the Kids formed in 1976 to prove to the world that punk was more than just a London vs New York fashion contest. Originally released on the PHILIPS label in 1978, and highly acclaimed as one of the best punk records EVER, the Kids’ debut album is finally reissued on vinyl, with two bonus tracks recorded in 1977. This is pure and quintessential PUNK ROCK. The second release on the new Radiation Deluxe Series, this classic punk LP is reissued on 180 gram vinyl in a deluxe 350 gram cardboard sleeve. Punk rock never looked or sounded this good.

NIGHTFELL "the living ever mourn" (Southern Lord) - 17€
Nightfell unites Portland, OR musicians Todd Burdette (Tragedy, Warcry, His Hero Is Gone) and Tim Call (Aldebaran, Mournful Congregation) with "The Living Ever Mourn" rending over forty minutes of purely epic metal, bridging morose heaviness with melodic destruction envisioned and executed in a period of grief, delirium and loss of life.

RAXOLA - s/t (Veals & Geeks) - 14€
Fantastic debut album by Raxola, a Belgian punk band which formed 1977 by Yves Kengen, who previously played in Bastard with Brian James. They are, with The Kids and Hubble Bubble, one of the three Belgian bands to have had the opportunity to record an album from the beginning of the punk era. They split up in 1979 after their record company fired them for becoming too progressive.
This is reissue of this Belgian punk classic, originally released in 1978 on the Philips label. Following the success of THE KIDS' first LP, Philips was on the lookout for new punk talent. What they found was RAXOLA, and they took Belgium by storm with an amazing sound. Comes on pink vinyl.


SADO NATION "we are not equal" (Radiation) - 14€
Formed in 1978 by David Corboy, senior citizen in Northwest punk rock, (who had been playing in bands since 1963!), Portland's KBD punk legends SADO-NATION released their groundbreaking debut EP in 1980, and switched right after to a faster and tighter hardcore punk mostly thanks to the addition of the singer Mish Bondage to the band. Voted best female voclaist by Flipside in 1984, Mish's frightening stage presence and meaningful lyrics, gave Corboy's compositions a new twist, which resulted in one of the most hidden treasures of American 80's Hardcore Punk history. SADO-NATION first lp, originally released on the Brainstem label in 1982, is now legitimately reissued on vinyl for the first time in 30 years, thanks to Radiation Records and the original band members. After years of struggle and despair, hundreds of punk record collections can now be easily completed.


SCUMRAID "control" (Symphony Of Destruction) - 13

17 tracks of pure D-Beat noise punk insanity. 10 brand new songs and a few remixed favorites taken from the 'Out of Order' and 'Rip Up' sessions collected on to one perfect platter, resequenced, remixed and remastered with new artwork. This is how Scumraid should have been presented in the first place, on a proper LP.

LP
ACCüSED "the return of martha splatterhead" (Unrest) - 13€
Repress of the Accüsed's first full-length masterpiece released on LP in 1986 by C.O.R / EARACHE. This legendary album has influenced many bands around the world because of its fiercely original style. Martha is back on black!! Includes nice clean packaging with original lyric sheet and collage. And don't forget kids...if it doesn't splatter, it doens't matter!!

AGENT ORANGE "living in the darkness" (Fan Club) - 12€
Certainly one of the three most important hardcore records for the burgeoning skate scene in the early eighties (JFA's "Valley Of The Yakes" and Minor Threat's "Out Of Step" being the other two), "Living In Darkness" also happens to be the best example of the marriage between hardcore punk and surf music. Originally released in 1981, this album, unlike many of the other records Drastic Plastic Records release, has consistently been in print on CD and has influenced countless music fans, musicians, and skate fans since its debut. What hasn't been available, however, is a faithful repoduction of the original vinyl release, now available again with 3 bonus songs taken from "Bitchin' Summer" 12" released in 1982.

ALLVARET tänk på döden" (Erste Theke Tontraeger) - 13
If anyone would ask me if I was serious about releasing this record from a totally unknown Swedish band, I would totally say yes. Why is ETT going to release Allvarets debut LP "Tank pa doden"? Not just because Allvaret means "serious" in Swedish, but because this LP is seriously great. Hailing from the Swedish underground punk scene, this catchy phenomenal guitar lines can only be written by Swedish guys and sound so perfectly vintage! Allvaret emerge from a fertile musical ferment to deliver some totally off the hook KBD punk with tunes that will stick in your head after just one song. The guitar sounds so Scandinavian – Masshysteri and The Vicious say Hello. The driving rhythm section with the harmonic drum and bass parts remind me of some kind of early UK street punk, without sounding stupidly Oi! The most important part is the awesome voice of Sushila, with Swedish lyrics matching perfectly together. A bag full of diamonds for sale, even if you don't speak Swedish, this record will make you want to start the kind of dance action you haven't had since that childish days way back then!


CARCASS "reek of putrefaction" (Fan Club) – 12€
Their first Lp from 1988 availabe again on vinyl with un-censored sleeve, inlay and sticker on plastic sleeve.


CHAOS UK "the chipping sodbury bonfire tapes" (Radiation) - 14

Their comeback album from 1989 and, according to most, their best one. Probably titled after the band’s number one enemy’s most recent album, Michelle Shocked’s Texas Campfire Tapes (their controversy over the Short, Sharp Shocked album had just ended when this album came out) and originally self-released on their own SLAP UP records label, after a three years long semi-retirement (the band unexplicably disappeared from the music scene right after their 1986 Radiaoctive Earslaughter split LP with Extreme Noise Terror). This is also the last album with Mower on vocals, and the first to move towards a more “classic” UK punk approach compared to their noisy, early 80’s releases, resulting in these 14 tracks of quintessential brit-punk!

INFERNO "hibakusha" (Power It Up) - 15
Another classic title from the german hardcore / punk history now for the first time officially reissued. The second full length "Hibakusha" from south germans INFERNO was recorded in summer 85 at the legendary Music Lab Studios in Berlin. 14 brutal songs recorded with a pinch of speedcore that were not to be surpassed in power at the time. The Japanese term "Hibakusha" is used in the Land of the Rising Sun usually in connection with the victims of the atomic bombing of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and is as album title already before the recordings. The recordings were remastered by Archie Alert (Guitar,now in TERRORGRUPPE). Cover and Lyricsheet has also been reworked by Howie (Singer).

LEATHERFACE "mush" (Black Label) – 12€
Taking their name from the cult classic horror film, 90s underground punk icons, Leatherface, were stalwarts of the UK scene, arriving at a time many thought that brand of brash songwriting had had its day. Re-writing the rule book when it came to punk requisites; passion; angst and power combined with undeniable songwriting and technical prowess. Led by the impassioned and emotive wordsmith Frankie Stubbs, it made them one of the most exhilarating bands of their time.
Hailing from the industrial town of Sunderland, Leatherface formed in 1988. With a line-up consisting of Stubbs, guitarist Dickie Hammond, bass player Stuart Schooler and drummer Andrew Laing. Stubbs’ rasping vocals complimented the explosive hooks and thrashing guitars, which quickly became their trademark.
Following on from 1989’s ‘Cherry Knowle’, 1990 saw the band sign to Fire and release the fierce and defining, ‘Fill Your Boots’. With Stubbs and Hammond beginning to collaborate more on songwriting, it also introduced new bassist Rob Turnball. (Breaking in a new bass player every album would quickly become a trend for the band.) From this album ‘Razor Blades And Aspirin’ and ‘Peasant in Paradise’ would remain in their repertoire for over twenty years. With ‘Fill Your Boots’ proving a success, later that year they would go on to produce the Smokey Joe EP.
However it was 1991’s follow-up ‘Mush’ that’s continually been regarded as an absolute punk classic. Teaming up with engineer Paul Tipler (who also worked on Stereolab and Chapterhouse), ‘Mush’ was recorded in Greenhouse Studios in North London (owned by Pat Collier of The Vibrators). Following praise from the music press, they soon found themselves doing John Peel and Mark Radcliffe sessions.
Gaining attention throughout the UK and with popularity in the US on the horizon with ‘Mush’, ‘Minx’ was released in 1993. Arriving at the peak of their powers it would also be on the brink of their first hiatus. Channelling Stubbs’ love for Joy Division, the new album had a more emotional direction, in contrast to the group’s earlier recordings. Recorded in Stubbs’ home studio, ‘Minx’ came with the addition of their much loved fourth bassist, former Snuff band member Andy Crichton. The album has since been considered a lost classic by the band’s rabid followers.

MASSACRE 68 "no estamos conformes!" (Kamaset Levyt) - 12€
Official reissue of this classic hc/punk album from Mexico. 15 songs of raw and aggressive hardcore punk with lyrics dealing with corrupt police, military, elections,corruption, support for political prisoners... The band members also played in Atoxxxico and Solucion Mortal, covered songs by Rattus and Olho Seco, so you know what sort of sound to expect. This is a classic Spanish language hardcore punk record, and probably the most influential punk record from Mexico.

NEWTOWN NEUROTICS "elephant demos" (No PLan) - 16
In 1980, sometime between their first and second 7", Newtown Neurotics recorded a 10 song demo. Why they never used any of it for later releases is a mystery. Perhaps because shortly afterwards they changed drummers. Either way, the 10 song demo remained unreleased for nearly 40 years. Now it´s here in all it´s beauty, with an added bonus track recorded live the same year where they cover one of Buddy Holly´s biggest hits. Amazing punk rock that is at the same time tuneful and provocative. A must have. Gatefold cover. Black vinyl limited to 300 copies.

QUARANTINE "regressive thoughts” (Nikt Nic Nie Wie) GATEFOLD DOUBLE LP - 23€
Available again for the first time in 20 years! - "Quarantine" was a short-lived band from Glasgow, Scotland and featured Brian Curran from Disaffect, Jamie Usher from Sedition and Tracey Fallon debut on Bass & Vocals. - Despite their previous more fast and hardcore inspired bands, QUARANTINE went on playing more passionated and emotional, melancholy fueled punkrock that became semi-legendary among the nineties DIY underground punkrock scene...
This double LP includes their only LP "Automatic Negative Thoughts", released originally 1996 on Nabate Records (Belgium), the "Junction 10" EP and compilation tracks as well as their early demos.
Also included is a zine - format interview about the band’s related stories and their present activities, as well as the lyricsheet. Music and artwork rebuilt with passion. Remastered by Marcin Dymiter and Bri Doom , artwork rebuilt by Mike Champagne (Knife In The Leg, Alert! Alert!, Ohyda and many more).

RUDIMENTARY PENI "the e.p.'s of r.p." (Corpus Christi) - 14€
The E.P.s of R.P. is a compilation, t contains both of the band's first two 7" EPs, Rudimentary Peni and Farce. Tracks 1-12 were taken from the Rudimentary Peni 7" EP, recorded at Street Level in 1981 and released in August that year. Tracks 13-22 were from the Farce 7" EP, recorded at Southern Studios, London, in 1982, engineered by John Loder, produced by Penny Rimbaud and Rudimentary Peni, and released on Crass Records in July of that year.

RUDIMENTARY PENI "death church" (Corpus Christi) - 14€
Death Church was recorded in two days at Southern Studios in April of 1983. It was the band’s first long-player, following on the heels of their self-titled EP in 1981 and the Farce single on Crass Records in 1982. Arguably the most beloved album album of the band’s many fans, Death Church wore its contents on its sleeve, quite literally. The intricate line drawings of vocalist/guitarist Nick Blinko are dark visions of madness, religion and death...all of which are to be found in the lyrics within. Musically, Death Church has been embraced and claimed by every fringe musical niche of its time... it’s the album that brought together the death rockers, anarcho-punks, peace punks, hardcore punks, proto-metallers and art rockers.
Formed in 1980, Rudimentary Peni were initially inspired by bands such as The Damned, Slaughter and the Dogs, and Discharge. The release of their first EP in 1981 coincided with their first gig, with Flux of Pink Indians in London. Despite many rumours, no member of the band has ever died, (yet!) and the line up has remained constant on all the recorded releases. Packaged in a original fold-out poster sleeve.

TOTAL CONTROL "typical system" (Iron Lung) – 14€
Finally, a new deep cut from Melbourne’s visceral post-punk band Total Control. Typical System, their second LP, was written, recorded, created over the past two years and is set for US/Worldwide release via Iron Lung Records on June 24th and self-release in Australia/New Zealand on June 20th.
Total Control emerged from Australia’s dynamic punk scene in ’08, releasing a succession of 7”s that developed from an aggressive post-punk band sound to studio forays into electronic forms from minimal wave to house. Their debut LP, Henge Beat, was commended as one of the few records released in 2011 that evaded the ease of classification and competent tribute act status of most modern bands.
Subsequently, they have released three very different records: a split 12” with Thee Oh Sees, a 7” single on Sub Pop and a house remix 12”. Typical System develops on the incongruent demands of their debut LP and ensuing releases, a further development on their continually evolving sound.

V/A "POHJALLA" (Svart) - 19
This was one of the very first punk rock records to come out of Finland. Although Love Records were nearly bankrupt by the end of the seventies, they still managed to take part in releasing some of the most important ’77 punk rock records in the country. Pohjalla was a showcase of the best young talent in the local punk scene at the time, with all material recorded specifically for this album. There have been a few CD reissues over the years, but this is the first time the album is reissued on vinyl. Black vinyl, 500 copies.

CROW “vertigo / occupied japan" (Prank) - 7 (Smokey Clear Vinyl)
Blasting metallic fury, the new two-song 7” from Tokyo’s CROW features their trademark Searing guitar solos, rumbling mid-tempo charge of bleak, dark metallic hardcore capped with their trademark harsh, deep vocals. Issued in an ultra limited quantity for the “Chaos In Tejas” festival earlier this year, this new pressing features lyric translations.

HEARTLESS - st (Self Released) - 5€
Heartless are an abrasive, dark and dirty metallic hardcore punk band from Pittsburgh, PA. Heartless play a brand of hardcore that could easily be passed off on first listen as power violence, but upon repeat visits, one will uncover an array of other influences like metallic hardcore (ala Integrity), straight up crust punk and burly, bottom-heavy dark hardcore (like Cursed or Nails).

ANGELIC UPSTARTS "independent punk singles 1977 - 1985" (Radiation) DOUBLE LP - 19€
23 tracks spanning the Upstarts' early singles for independent labels, from the groundbreaking 'The Murder Of Liddle Towers' released in 1978 to the controversial 'Brighton Bomb' from 1985. Along with UK chart hits 'Solidarity', 'Not Just A Name', 'Machine Gun Kelly', 'Woman In Disguise' and many others, Angelic Upstarts are one of the most iconic bands of the whole skinhead subculture. The group formed in South Shields in 1977 and are still active to this day. This double vinyl LP celebrates their more belligerent days along with their mid-'80s productions, whose approach is more mature and politically challenged. A brilliant and long running UK punk group, this compilation is by far their finest music and a perfect starting point for getting into the Angelic Upstarts. Crucial.


ASOCIAL “död åt kapitalismen” (F.O.A.D.) - 15€ (Red Vinyl)
Sweden’s Hardcore pioneers blast back after 23 years! “Död åt kapitalismen” is their first recording since 1994 and as expected it takes no prisoners… 10 songs of raw and brutal HC combing the traditional Scandinavian approach with a solid d-beat structure. It takes all the best features of their previous works to push them to a new devastating stage… speed, anger, vitriolic vocals and a solid production makes this a total scandicore headsmasher for fans of Anti Cimex, Crude SS, Totallitär, Avskum and so on. Comes in a gatefold sleeve.

THE CRACK "in search of the crack" (Radiation) - 14€
Founded in 1982, The Crack didn't release their debut album until 1989. These British punkers were often tied into the Oi! scene of the mid-'80s along with Cockney Rejects and The Business, but they had more in common with the melodic punk stylings of 999 and mod groups like The Jam or Secret Affair. Featuring a blistering wall of guitars and biting melodies, from the classic album opener 'My World' to the raw closer 'The Giddy House' The Crack deliver ten fantastic original tunes that, while firmly rooted in 1980s UK anthemic punk, also features a pop sensibility that presages the oncoming Brit-pop scene that would absolutely dominate the '90s. Seriously, we'd bet the farm that the young Gallagher brothers were blasting this back in 1989. Absolutely essential 1980s UK punk that bridges the gap between '80s Oi! and the Brit-pop/power-pop revival. Killer.

DECLINO “terra bruciata – discografia completa” (F.O.A.D.) DOUBLE LP - 22€
The most exhaustive and complete DECLINO discography release ever made! Formed in 1982 in Torino (also hometown of Negazione, Kollettivo, Blue Vomit, Nerorgasmo and many more), DECLINO stands as one of the most important names in the legendary first wave of Italian Hardcore, or call it “the furious years” or specifically for Torino, the “wild bunch”. They were on the maps in the early MRR reports about Italy’s Punk/HC scene and also appeared in the fundamental “P.E.A.C.E.” 2xLP compilation on R Radical Records! Their style was a highly energetic clash of speed, rage and creative song-writing. The band featured members that also played in cult acts such as Negazione, Indigesti, 5° Braccio etc… and they were definitely among the first in their area to develop a mature style that was leaning more towards the intensity of total Hardcore than on Punk’s rawness. This anthology includes all their existing studio recordings, consisting of: the debut 7″ (1983), “Mucchio selvaggio” split tape/LP with Negazione (1984), 3 unreleased tracks (1984), “Eresia” 12″ (1985) and a complete soundboard live recording (Denmark, 1985) never released before in its entirety… for a total of 39 songs!
Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a 11″x11″ booklet glued on the inner panel, collecting a huge selection of photos, flyers, artworks and all the lyrics. And included in this first pressing you’ll also find a poster with the discarded art for “Eresia” 12″ that has never been published to date!! Compared to the previous collective works, “Terra bruciata” is the definitive and most complete one, each session / recording included is totally complete! If you’re a maniac of rapid, straightforward Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC in general, this is an absolute must!


KBO! "perspektiva 1982 - 1989" (No PLan) - 14€
A collection of demo recordings from the beginning of the career of Kbo!, one of the best known punk/HC bands from Yugoslavia that belongs to the second, or rather third wave of Yugo punk. Starting back in 1982, in the following 7 years Kbo! became one of the leading Punk/HC bands in Yugoslavia alongside KUD Idijoti. They released a handful of demo tapes and only at the very end of the 80s had a chance to release their first full length on Greek label Wipe Out Records (Panx Romana, Sress, Anti, Chaos Generation,...). These recordings collected throughout the 80s show the band in their best moments. To top it all, the album comes with an 8 page fanzine that tells the band's history until 1989 together with lyrics and a huge amount of pictures and flyers. If you are interested what the punk/HC scene was like in the 80s in Yugoslavia, this album is for you. The band has been playing for 35 years now and this is a great chance to learn how it all started back in 1982.
300 on black. The record comes with an 8-page fanzine full of original photos from the 80s, biography, lyrics, gig flyers, cassette covers and more. All the versions of these songs have never been on vinyl before.


NO TREND "you deserve your life" (Digital Regress) - 18
In 1983, No Trend booked time at Inner Ear studio to record material for what would become the Teen Love 7”. In this session they also recorded 6 additional songs: some were re-recorded and featured on their first album, Too Many Humans; the rest never saw a release until well after the band was finished. After the recording session the band embarked on their first tour across the U.S., a punishing experience which resulted in drummer Michael Salkind quitting the band. He recounts: “I received 25 copies of the EP as my divorce settlement, and went on to play in a variety of bands in and around the DC area. None of them ever attained the status of No Trend, nor did I ever lose as much money and dignity.” This record, You Deserve Your Life, contains the earliest recorded iteration of No Trend’s material from their first Inner Ear session, and two live songs never recorded otherwise. This is the first time that this material has been available on vinyl.


TARGET OF DEMAND "man's ruin" (Radiation) - 14€
One of the best kept secrets of '80s California hardcore punk, TARGET OF DEMAND hailed from Long Beach and only released this 10-track smasher on the small Happy Hermit label and a couple compilation tracks before disbanding. Due to their very short existence as a band, and the fact that they were much more influenced by Teen Idles or SS Decontrol and the sounds coming out of Boston and the Midwest, rather than what was going on in California at the time, this incredibly ripping U.S. hardcore mayhem hasn't been reissued until today. Remastered by California punk legend GEZA X, from the original analog tapes, this is 100% pure American hardcore from 1983. RIYL: Black Flag, Poison Idea, Minor Threat, early Suicidal Tendencies. Limited to 400 copies on black vinyl.


ZEKE "live and uncensored" (Euro Boy) - 14€
For the first time on vinyl ZEKE live, raw and wild recordings taken from the CD Live Uncensored and mastered for vinyl pressing. 26 tracks in perfect order to feel like the band are playing in your kitchen, loud, fast and furious. Combining tracks from the their last studio effort, some unreleased stuff and a whole s-load of live tracks. Real speed rock and roll!.

THE LAST DRIVE - st (Labyrinth of thoughts records / The Lab records) - 17€ (Διάφανο βινύλιο)
H βόλτα κρατάει… Κοντά εννιά χρόνια μετά από το προηγούμενο full length album τους, οι The Last Drive επανέρχονται ορμητικά με τον νέο δίσκο τους, που φέρει το όνομά τους. Σκοπός τους, για άλλη μια φορά, να ταράξουν τα νερά της εγχώριας ροκ σκηνής, και όχι μόνο. Αφού πέρασαν το μεσοδιάστημα με συναυλίες εντός και εκτός συνόρων, επιχειρούν μια αβίαστη, ανοιχτή περιπλάνηση στα μονοπάτια του rock n roll και της ψυχεδέλειας• χάνουν και ξαναβρίσκουν τους εαυτούς και τις επιρροές τους, απελευθερωμένοι από στεγανά. Οκτώ δικές τους συνθέσεις με συνολική διάρκεια 45 λεπτών, ικανές να χωρέσουν τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματα όλων μας σε μια εποχή που δοκιμάζει όρια και βεβαιότητες. Ανάμεσά τους κομμάτια που δεν έχουν παρουσιαστεί, αλλά και highlights από τις ζωντανές εμφανίσεις όπως το Always the Sun και το White Knuckles, η πρώτη εκδοχή του οποίου ακούστηκε στο ντοκιμαντέρ Fascism Inc.
O δίσκος αφιερώνεται στo Drive Tribe, την κοινότητα των φίλων που στηρίζουν όλα αυτά τα χρόνια το γκρουπ, και στη μνήμη του αγαπημένου Fred Cole των Dead Moon, που χάθηκε πρόσφατα.
Το άλμπουμ ηχογραφήθηκε στο στούντιο New Fab Liquid έπειτα από μία περίοδο προπαραγωγής στο Urban Studio. Την παραγωγή υπογράφουν ο στενός συνεργάτης της μπάντας Jim Spliff και ο Νίκος Αγγλούπας a.k.a. Otommo, που υπήρξε και ο ηχολήπτης του δίσκου. Στην ηχογράφηση συμμετείχαν εκλεκτοί φίλοι και συνεργάτες της μπάντας όπως ο Φώτης Σιώτας στο βιολί, Costas C. a.k.a. Digital Alkemist στα κρουστά, Μόνο Kaktos στα κρουστά-φωνητικά και ο Stavros X στα φωνητικά.
Συνεχίζοντας τη συνεργασία τους με τις Labyrinth of thoughts records και The Lab records. Δεύτερη κοπή. 300 κόπιες σε διάφανο βινύλιο!

ARSE "primitive species" (Erste Theke Tonträger) - 13€
I am fucking psyched to bring you this 12" banger all the way from Australia. In a time the world has become a melting pot of hate, absurdity and on the brink of destruction ARSE have made a record that sums up these dark, dense and claustrophobic times. The relentless rhythm section drives the sound with guitar work that is squealing and immense alongside vocals that spit bile and razor-sharp lyrics.
PRIMITIVE SPECIES is the pinnacle sound of a band that has been crafting, honing and re-imagining the way punk music should be played, with so much raw atmosphere and energy that it will probably rip you apart. Be careful. It has energy, heart and that special something you can’t put your finger on.
Built on a relentless sinister thrum, a taut propulsive clatter, ARSE explode with scalding fury in the screaming guitars and tortured barks and roars echoing out of the radioactive slurry. This is ferocious hardcore/post punk, worked til its end. Noisy and incessant, but it's hella melodic all the same, so hurry up and snag this bad boy.
Primitive Species just sent me three steps back on the evolutionary chain. And I am thankful for this reset!


CRUDE S.S. "who'll survive" (Radiation) - 14€
Pioneers of the early D-beat scene, Crude S.S., need little introduction to the extreme punk record-buying audience. Formed in Fagersta, Sweden in 1982, C.S.S. helped define the whole crust-core subgenre, along with their pals Anti-Cimex and Mob 47. Hints of extreme metal a la Venom and Celtic Frost, mixed with the UK hc approach of Conflict, Crass and Discharge were the main ingredients for a recipe which allowed the band to build a following for 35 years to come. This complete discography collection features the entire '1000 Dead Cops' demo tape from 1982, their legendary 1985 'Who'll Survive' 7-inch and the band's contribution to the 1985 'The Vikings Are Coming' compilation LP, along with an unreleased 1984 studio track and a live cut.


DARK WEB "clone age" (Erste Theke Tonträger) - 13€
Dark Web: a Philadelphian post-punk group that I’m surprised to have not heard of sooner. Given, it’s not like I was keeping a close eye on the place to begin with, but I seriously should’ve been gushing about this band’s stuff a long time ago, especially since the EP itself was released by Suicide Bong Tapes in mid-2016.
Everything about the band is seemingly tailored to my liking, and for the most part, falls into a section of my library that rarely sees the likes of Dark Web; with such engrossing, goth-tinged post-punk sounds such as these, that’s pretty fuckin’ unfortunate. Sharing members with Throbbing Chakra, Key Bumpz, Cool Piss, and Beth Israel, Dark Web is sure to impose a rich, powerful presence the moment the EP pivots from the opening rhythm into a dirge of squealing guitars and wholesome bellows, effectively combining elements of both gothic rock and punk alike, while also dispersing a hearty dosage of spacey, vibes into the mix in order to further obscure the band into territory I can only describe as “tastefully erratic”.
The first track, “Alien Vacation”, immediately sold me on the group, demanding that I get back to a member of the group and let them know that I’d be all-for sharing their material. I mean, it’d be difficult for me to turn a band like this down. That lead’s got SERIOUS pipes, to an extent that I originally mistook the influxes of similarly-alienlike backup vocals as some form of vocal processing – which is still oftentimes present, unsurprisingly, as to further bolster the weird, eccentric influence beyond the resonating harmonies that the vocals and guitars bring forth to the forefront.
Weave in some scathing solos and extremely memorable melodies, and maybe you can see why I’m kinda disappointed in myself for not catching wind of this four-piece anytime sooner. But what do *I*, Jimmy, personally think about Dark Web? I think they’re fuckin’ aliens, duh. Ain’t it obvious? Words by the #1 punk connoisseur Jimmy.

PRODUKT "slabosci" (Pasazer) - 12
Second release from this Olsztyn and Warsaw based band that features members of EL BANDA and UTOPIA among others. Once again they deliver kick ass raw and dirty punk rock with a little dose of D-beat. Here you get a slight touch of modern crust such as "Tragedy", rather than the classic Polish punk sound. Once again no happy songs nor choruses to clap to, but you'll find some brilliant (even if bitter) lyrics tackling on problems of everyday.


QUOD MASSACRE "v zmajevem gnezdu" (NE!) - 12€ (Black)
This album included 20 songs (+ 4 bonus songs) from bands early phase. Many of these songs were unknown until now. Angry, sympathetic and totaly energetic. This is Quod Massacre like you've never heard before! I heard Quod Massacre first time on the V/A "Breaking the silence" 7'' EP compilation.  And right  from the start, I was trapped in the exciting world the band created in their song "Quod Massacre" with their strong  and nervous melody - and of course, it was a bit scary talking about band from the other side of the Iron Curtain. The EP was released
in 1987 and I was a punk rocker from a small town in Sweden who preferred European punk, like Wretched, Disper -Azione, Terveet Kädet, Slam, Kafka Process and HHH. I couldn’t stop listening to it. I fell for the edgy sound built on strong melodies and chaotic guitars, and I fell for Quod Massacre’s amazing vocals. You couldn’t  label them; in my opinion in 1987 they were very distinctive, something that the guitarist Rile was very happy about when I interviewed them in the same year for my fanzine ‘’ Profit Blaskan’’.  "We simply can't label  our music. We play whatever we feel like playing, " he said in the article.

S.O.R. "sistem organizirane regresije" (NE!) LP + CD - 12€ (Black)
''S.O.R. do not pay regard to social norms. They reject all forms of state control and are against exploitation, profiteering and racism. They reject violence.  S.O.R.  approve real life and that is why they reject drugs. Becuse they mean escape from reality. They believe in good party, which means only party and no escape from reality. Their music is full of energy, with frequent rhytm changes, chaos and melodic changes. Do what you want, but not harm others. Punk is a vision of your protest'' BIGor, jan 2014
S.O.R. was formed 1984 and was the first HC band in Idrija, small town in Slovenia. Before they started playing Idrija had two strong punk bands: Kuzle and Sund, who has made some great tracks on the ex-Yu punk scene. S.O.R did something similar in the HC scene. Between 1984-88, they visited the studio three times where they recorded several demos and managed to play on some of the biggest youth festivals in Ex-Yu. On this LP you can find S.O.R. complete works with all studio and some live tracks. In addition, there’s also a lot of photos and other memorabilia. Gatefold cover with inner sleeve and 2 inserts. 300 copies included CD version too. All songs are remastered!


TOUMITTUJEN JUHLA "1983/84" (Fight) - 10€
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.

VIRUS "1984 demos" (Vomitopunkrock) - 12€
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.

CRISIS "kollectiv" (La Vida En Us Mus) DOUBLE LP - 20€
For the first time ever, the three Crisis singles are officially re-released on Vinyl along with demos from 77 and 78 and a simply stunning sounding live set from Norway in 1979. The debut 7" from 1978 on Action Group Records, 'No Town Hall' features three stonewall punk classics. The next two singles 'UK79' and 'Alienation' make up the four tracks recorded for a John Peel Session in 1978. The lyrics are a product of the time against a backdrop of street fights with the National Front, violence at gigs, institutional racism within the police force, class division, industrial strife, sexual repression… Upon reflection not much has really changed in the last 35 years! Also included are demo tracks from 1977 and 1978 which are raw and basic punk just as you would expect. They have never been officially released on vinyl before. Sides Three and Four features a live set recorded when Crisis played Norway in 1979 which features all of the material that later turned up on ‘Hymns Of Faith’. The sound quality of the recording is so good it would pass as a studio recording.
The record comes housed in a tip on heavyweight sleeve with detailed liner notes, reviews, interviews, and a few unseen group photos. The sleeve picture taken in Kiev in 2012 couldn't be more relevant, capturing the Zeitgeist - which was part of what Punk was all about in the first place.


FRAMTID "under the ashes" (La Vida En Us MUs) - 14€
An absolutely over the top recording comprising twelve tracks of punishing hardcore with a huge wall-of-noize production adding to their faultless song writing. As noisy as the album is, all the songs are hits and hard to forget. 'The Total Arse', 'Tomorrow' and 'Consuming Shit and Mind Pollution' are what the new generation of noize-not-music punk lack, memorable anthems. Housed in a tip on sleeve for as long as they last and without alterations to the art or sound from the original, this reissue tries to bring an undoubtedly classic of our generation back to life.

OMEGA TRIBE "no love lost" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Remastered vinyl reissue of the debut and only Omega Tribe album, originally released in late 1983 on Corpus Christi Records. The album was recorded by Guitarist Pete Fender deep in the Poison Girl’s basement studio in Leyton and contains 11 punk anthems with a pop sensibility missed by most of their curse of 1983 peers. Omega Tribe were one of the few bands that had a much more softer, poetic and melodic style of playing that still managed to impress, educate and influence their audiences. It was protest music with a heart and sense of love that still is relevant 35 years later. This album has never been reissued and deserves it's place right next to the Mob - Let the Tribe Increase, Poison Girls - Hex and Zounds - Curse of Zounds.
