ANASAZI "nasty witch rock" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14
After two 7" singles (on Sacred Bones and Toxic State), a flexi and demos galore, Nuke York's ANASAZI finally unleash their debut album on La Vida Es Un Mus in Europe and Toxic State in America. 'Nasty Witch Rock' comes from the dirty, rotten and seedier side of New York. The album is built on raw energy, passion and intensity. The sound is blown out with distorted and echoey guitar work akin to Fire Of Love era GUN CLUB , pounding tribal drum patterns and a vocalist who oozes violence and desperation. If you have 'In The Flat Field' era BAUHAUS, TSOL or CHRISTIAN DEATH in your collection or loved it when the early 80's UK anarcho bands added a bit of goth edge to their sound then ANASAZI is a must hear. The 180 gsm vinyl comes housed in a heavy weight sleeve including a 16 page small booklet and an A1 poster.

BAD BRAINS “rock for light” (Caroline) – 11€
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.


COKE BUST "confined" (Refuse) - 10€
This is the third release of Coke Bust on Refuse Records and we're fuckin' proud of it as this band is one of the most kicks ass unit of the last decade. Their second 12" in their discography is nine new songs which strike with total power and explosion of anger pointed in the right direction. This is the sound of Washington DC Straight Edge of our time. This is the soundtrack of their "Hardcore Without Borders" campaign as a full-on non-stop touring machine. These 9 songs will hit you hard with their raw and fast sound and lyrics that desperately attempt to liberate the individual from the modern societal trap where addictive and destructive consumerism in a homeland is linked to brutal military interventions in foreign countries. Take a deep breath before listening.Mastering by Smok (Post Regiment, Studio As One). US pressing will be out on Grave Mistake Records.

DISCHARGE "why" (Havoc) - 14€
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".


DISCHARGE "hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing" (Havoc) - 14€
A re-issue of the skull-splitting debut full length from Britain's hardcore legends. Originally released in 1982, the album is a hurricane of wall-of-sound brutality, delivered with D.I.Y. ethics and an apocalyptic and anti-establishment bravado. In addition to the 14 album tracks you also get several bonus tracks, analog mastered from the original master tapes. Vinyl comes with gatefold-cover.


DISORDER "under the scalpel blade" (Radiation) - 12€
Bristol Punk Pioneers DISORDER formed around 1980, during the second wave of UK punk rock. Their approach to DIY ethics was so deep that they decided not to sign to Riot City, but to create a label of their own, for a bunch of classic singles the average distortion level of which led BBC DJ John Peel to describe Disorder as sounding like "shit". In fact, unlike many contemporaries like Crass or Conflict, Disorder showed no ambitions in stylistic experimentation: their debut LP 'Under The Scalpel Blade' is one blast after the other of pure rage, packaged in two-minute bursts of hyper-speed drumming, distorted guitars, and screaming vocals. First press also includes a full colour, double faced printed inner with a revised version of the poster featured with the 1984 original!


DISORDER "singles collection" (Radiation) - 12€
Formed in Bristol in 1980, Disorder is one of the few 'big' names of uK hardcore still going strong today. Originally released in 1985 on teh 'Disorder' label, "The Singles Collection" compiles their first and fieriest recordings in one place; comprised of 3 7” EPs (the legendary "Complete Disorder", "Distortion To Deafness" and the "Mental Disorder" EP), along with their 8 track 12” EP "Perdition" - recordings which John Peel allegedly referred to as sounding like “shit” (possibly a compliment) - this LP of long out of print recordings would be a welcome addition to any punk collector’s shelves. Another essential piece of the UK punk puzzle reissued by Radiation.


D.Y.S. "brotherhood" (Euro Fan) - 10
DYS ('Department of Youth Services'), along with fellow band SSD, was the backbone of the so-called 'Boston Crew' - a group of guys who lifted weights, ate lots of red meat, and advocated the straight edge. DYS formed around singer Dave Smalley, a Washington DC native attending school in Boston, and bassist Jon Anastas, previously of Decadence (see the This Is Boston Not L.A. comp). The band released this classic LP in 1983 on SSD's XClaim label and played shows in Boston and elsewhere on the East Coast. Unlike other, (previous) vinyl reissue of this material, this version restores the original artwork. Also includes a really solid-sounding live set from CBGB tacked on the end... ripping stuff. Essential.


CHAOS UK / EXTREME NOISE TERROR split (Farewell) - 11€
This record is the equivalent of a 12 megaton nuclear warhead!!
The Chaos U.K. is great on this disc, a bit different than most of their other recordings. But the meat of the disc is Extreme Noise Terror, when that feedback comes hammering in on the first track "System Shit" World War III is on for the next 15 to 20 minutes.
It just doesn't get any better than this, no one before or since has captured the raw political energy being unleashed on this classic recording!
WARNING: listening to this record at high volumes exposes you to ten times the "safe" RADS limit aloted to nuclear power plant workers.
The record contains two E.N.T. bonus sonx taken from the legendary "North Atlantic Noise Attack" compilation! All-time classic!


THE FREEZE "freak show" (Gummopunx) - 10€
Reissue of the Freeze's 1995 LP, and it's actually the first time this full-length has made it to vinyl. This came out at the peak of the 90s pop-punk scene, and while it definitely shows some influence from that scene (particularly in the rather clean production), this is still the Freeze and still has a ton of their rough-around-the-edges sound. If the only things you like are "I Hate Tourists" and Guilty Face this might not be for you, but if you can still get down with Land of the Lost I'd recommend checking this out, as it's a high-energy, catchy punk album along the lines of that record or maybe Horse Bites-era DI. 300 copies on black vinyl. 


THE FREEZE "crawling blind" (Gummopunx) - 10€
A reissue of 95 album by the best Boston hardcore band ever. While most of their contemporaries were slowing down to play bad bar rock complete with hair-shaking guitar solos (SSD, Gang Green, Jerry's Kids, DYS), the Freeze kept plugging away with albums full of paranoia and frustration. I'm not saying they were devoid of metal; the guitars were always very prevalent, more so than most other bands of that era. By the time they recorded that album, the solos had become longer and more technical, but this stuff will never be confused with ass like How We Rock or Older Bud-Weiser, or even a band like Propagandhi. If you've never heard them, imagine a more intense, drug-addled Adolescents.


FROM ASHES RISE / VICTIMS - split (Havoc) - 11€
FROM MASHES RISE plays dark, slightly metallic hardcore that is not unlike early HIS HERO IS GONE mixed with Scandinavian hardcore like SKITSYSTEM and '80s UK crust like ANTISECT. Drawing on those influences FROM ASHES RISE has moved this sound into it's own territory. VICTIMS from Sweden play aggressive fast Scandinavian hardcore not unlike early SKITSYSTEM or WOLFBRIGADE. You can hear the influence of early Swedish hardcore like ANTI-CIMEX, SHITLICKERS and CRUDE SS mixed with the heavier sounds of '90s crustcore. Cover artwork is done by Pushead.
From Ashes Rise

Victims


FUNERAL ORATION "the godsend" (Pain Of Mind) - 10€
This is the vinyl-version of FUNERAL ORATIONs´ "godsend demo" from 1984, which was only available on it´s original tape-format and as a very shitty bootleg released a few years ago! The material on this demo is one of the best and intense recordings FUNERAL ORATION ever did and it´s a pity that it hasn´t been available as a proper release in the last 20 years!
For those who are not familiar with the band: FUNERAL ORATION were one of the longest running and most influential bands from Holland playing snotty and angry punk/hardcore, which became very special throught the melodic vocals! They also could be called the European version of HÜSKER DÜ!


GOVERNMENT ISSUE "the fun just never ends" (Doc. Strange) - 11€
Dr. Strange continues the GOVERNMENT ISSUE reissue series with the 1985 full-length, "the fun just never ends". Remastered for added punch by guitarist Tom Lyle, this reissue also contains 4 alternate and out-take songs culled from the GOVERNMENT ISSUE vaults by Lyle and never before released.


HELLBASTARD "heading for iternal darkness" (Threats from the Past) - 11€
The first LP by Hellbastard from 1988, and the best one to start if you haven't listened to Hellbastard before. 9 tracks of dark and gloomy crust mixed with thrash metal, with political lyrics. If you like "Arise" by Amebix, you most definitely will like "Heading For Internal Darkness". Offical reissue.


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.


IMPACT "solo odio" (Radiation) - 12€
Official and licensed reissue for one of the few all-time classic lps of the first wave of Italian hardcore originally released in 1985. Hailing from Ferrara, early 80's era, IMPACT , along with WRETCHED, NEGAZIONE, INDIGESTI and DECLINO, set the stylistic and esthetic standards for a musical genre, later to become world famous, that mixed the political vehemence of british tradition (such as that of CRASS and CONFLICT) with the violence of early american hardcore (CIRCLE JERKS above all). Ten songs, a little more than 15 minutes of musical and ideological assault, through which IMPACT became a legend and changed the lives of three generations of Italian punks. Reissued on 140gr black vinyl with printed inner.


INFA-RIOT "kids of the 80's: singles and more" (Radiation) - 14€
Infa-Riot (short for "in for a riot") was a noteworthy name in the UK punk scene of 1981-1982. This set, that compiles the band's classic singles and ripping compilation tracks, is an essential addition to any UK Oi!/street punk collection.


JUNGBLUTH "part ache" (Vendetta) - 11€
Jungbluth is a three piece political hardcore/punk band from Münster, Germany, who formed in September of 2012. Jungbluth features ex-members of German hardcore/crust band Alpinist. Jungbluth derive their name from Karl Jungbluth, a German communist/antifascist resistance fighter during World War II. Jungbluth play an impressive style of politically charged metallic hardcore/punk that is anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-sexism, and any other type of discrimination present in today's modern world. Part Ache is the band's debut nine song LP, which is slated for physical release in August. On Part Ache, Jungbluth offer listeners nine songs of dark, brutal, and punishing songs of politically charged hardcore complete with heavy as fuck guitars, rapid fire drumming, and venomus/spite-filled vocals that's sure to please fans of modern hardcore, punk, and crust bands.


M.D.C. "hey cop if i had face like you" (Twisted Chords) - 10€
For the first time on vinyl since it originally came out in 1991. Twisted Chords is proud to bring you the political hardcore punk legends M.D.C.’s sixth full length; M.D.C.- Hey Cop!!! If I Had a Face Like Yours! Featuring MATT FREEMAN from OPERATION IVY and RANCID on bass. This contains the original full length restored and remastered for a louder, better sound then ever before.


NEWTOWN NEUROTICS "beggars can be choosers" (Radiation Reissues) – 12€
The first album by seminal political power punk trio Newtown Neurotics, 'Beggars Can Be Choosers', hit no. 6 in the UK independent charts in 1983. Formed in 1979 by vocalist and guitarist Steve Drewett, whose socialist-flavoured lyrics -never overbearing- have been grouped with those of Easterhouse, Billy Bragg or the Housemartins, the Neurotics sounded like a synthesis of everything cool in the first wave of punk: from The Ramones to The Clash to mid-period Undertones; sharp-edged, but still fun-sounding, with great hooks and melodies and socially aware lyrics. Criminally underrated Ramones-influenced political pop-punk. Titles like 'Living With Unemployment' and 'Get Up And Fight' speak for themselves. A must!


OI POLLOI "in defence of our earth" (NNNW) – 10€
This classic punk album from these Scots was originally released in 1990, and has been unavailable for years now. 11 cuts of anarcho punk full of ecological issues, anger and Earth power... and classic anarcho pie receipe!


PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES "the punk singles collection" (Radiation) - 12€
Formed in 1978 in the smalltown of Peacehaven by Del Strangefish and Pete Bywaters, Peter & The Test Tube Babies have been one of the most representative and longest running UK OI! bands ever. Unlike most bands of this ilk, their line-up remained pretty stable through the years, mostly thanks to Peter and Del never giving up the ghost. This unique collection gathers together the A and B sides from the Test Tubes early, most successful years starting with their 1982 debut single on the legendary No Future label, up to their later hits on Jungle and Trapper Records ending 1985. This essential collection provides a close look at the bands peak, and includes the UK Indie Chart hits 'Banned From The Pubs' (#10), 'Run Like Hell' (#2), 'Zombie Creeping Flesh' (#2), 'Blown Out Again' (#40), 'Wimpeez' (#8) and 'Keys Of The City' (#14).


POST REGIMENT "czar zly" (NNNW) - 9€
Available again on vinyl, repressed and remastered with completely new artwork. Their second LP from 1996, great powerful female fronted hc/punk from Warsaw.


POISON IDEA "war all the time" (Fan Club) - 10€
Mixing metal and punk wasn’t innovative in 1987, but Poison Idea managed a classic album by adding some much needed intensity into the genre. Each song on War All the Time flows into the other in a natural sequence for maximum impact and the whole thing blows over before you know it, but everything stays in your head, banging against the walls of your frontal bone. All this makes a good album, but what turns War All the Time into an amazing album are the lyrics and their delivery.


POISON IDEA "blank blackout vacant" (Fan Club) - 10€
Though not quite the shotgun blast of an album that its predecessor, ‘Feel the Darkness’, ‘Blank Blackout Vacant’ is nonetheless an ample testimony to Poison Idea's unbridled power and force. Fused 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, because from their inception in the very early '80s, they’ve fused tough biting riffs with angry venemous words to hammer out some of the most angry music your ears will ever hear. And for that, you gotta respect Poison Idea.


POISON IDEA ""record collectors are pretentious assholes/darby crash rides" (Fan Club) - 10
This vinyl collects "Darby Crash Rides Again" demo (recorded in 1982) and "Record Collectors Are Pretentious Assholes" (recorded in 1984). Good quality Fan Club Edition.


PUNCH "they don't have to believe" (Deathwish) - 13€
San Francisco's PUNCH deliver with "they don't have to believe" their 3rd full-length release. PUNCH combine fast, '80s-influenced hardcore, thrashing blast beats and female vocals. "they don't have to believe" is 15 songs that blur the lines of hardcore and grind. All of them personal, political and uniquely unapologetic. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.


R.A.M.B.O. "bring it" (Havoc) - 10€
RAMBO's "sophmore effort" is a titanic bulldozer of hardcore moshstrocity. Combining the power of epic swedish hardcore like Wolfbrigade and Disfear, the sick mosh of Hatebreed and Madball, with the politics of Crass. RAMBO take on apathy, the system, religion, intolerance and bad dance styles in nineteen tracks. Masterful production and over the top artwork. LP come with a bonus full length DVD with show highlights, tour diary, and instructional presentations.


RATTUS - s/t (Radiation) - 11€
RATTUS with their legendary record of 1984! If you do not know RATTUS so much that it is a Finnish hardcore punk band playing since the early 1980s and was one of the most striking bands of the Scandinavian scene. This 21-track LP captures the band in the best form. The lyrics faithfully reflect the time of "Ronald Reagan is a nazi pig" and others, mostly against war and hatred among people, which does not seem to have faded yet.


RED DEATH "permanent exile" (Hardware) - 12€
In 2014, DC's RED DEATH came out of the gate and obliterated everyone with one of the best hardcore demos of the year. Their first recorded output channeled the sheer brutality and precision of crossover classics like Animosity and Cause for Alarm, without straying too far from the rawness and reckless abandon of hardcore punk.  On their new LP, Permanent Exile, Red Death delivers exactly as we hope a band with a strong outset should - with an even more powerful and focused follow up release.  While influences on Permanent Exile range from Negative Approach to The Accused to Anti-Cimex, one thing is made clearly evidently: Red Death are first and foremost a hardcore band.  As hardcore and punk get more fractionalized each year, they are band that puts emphasis and importance on the music they are creating, rather than what scene they fit in or what uniform they are wearing.  Permanent Exile is the record for those of us who appreciate every facet of hardcore, punk, metal, and all genres in between - and that says a lot in 2015.


RUDIMENTARY PENI "death church" (Corpus Christi) - 13€
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.


RUDIMENTARY PENI "the e.p.'s of r.p." (Corpus Christi) - 13€
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.


VIOLENT PARTY "poison mixers" (Konton Crasher/Imminent Destruction) - 7€
Latest vinyl for this now-veteran noise punk band. Definitely one of the most extreme bands plying the noise punk style, Violent Party are definitely a bit more ambitious on this LP... the foundation is still Confuse-style noise punk, but the production is a lot stronger. It's a real feast for the ears, with a ton of different noise frequencies all at play. It's not as extreme or as psychedelic as, say, that great D-Clone LP, but it is a good deal more interesting than a lot of bands who just go for a straight up raw noise punk sound.


NEW ARRIVALS & RESTOCKS - 02.07.2018
EP's
EXISTENCE "into the furnace" (Quality Control/Painkiller) - 6€
After an acclaimed demo on Neutral Words Records in 2017, and stand out live shows across Europe, Stockholm's Existence bring you their debut EP 'Into the Furnace' with a signature blend of metallic hardcore and 90s grunge elements on Quality Control HQ. Into the Furnace sees the band explore powerful atmospherics, soaring guitar solos, mixed in with pit-worthy breakdowns. Meanwhile, vocalist Linus, a committed anti-fascist activist in Stockholm, sings about dealing with the consequences of mistakes from the past whilst exploring the Hindu idea of endless reincarnation. This is reflected in the artwork of the EP, which is inspired by the spiritual, and hellish, paintings of 15th Century Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch.
The 7" comes housed in a full colour gatefold card sleeve! Check out the promo video for the EP! Promo video by Daniel Elder

SNOR "scandinavian heartbreaker" (Adult Crash) - 6€
Reverb-heavy hardcore with D-beat tendencies (think DESTINO FINAL) that is absolutely elevated by the playful, high-pitched vocals. The interplay between the vocalist, who sounds like the singer for a lost early '80s Spanish punk band, and the band itself, who are dishing out completely straightforward grim-sounding hardcore, it's just fantastic! Given the wordplay in the record title, it's clear that the band has a sense of humor, but rather than giving in to the joke, the record is played completely straight, which makes it a very compelling listen. The last track ("Mro Zna Noc") is probably the best, a nasty mid-tempo snarl of a song like IGGY POP meets LEBENDEN TOTEN with the singer going completely nuts over the top, wailing and shrieking. Somehow her completely disarming vocals take on an unexpected and wholly welcome edge of menace, like she'd been playing at crazy all this time but holy shit, she might actually be dangerous. Great EP!


LP's
ΧΕΙΜΕΡΙΑ ΝΑΡΚΗ "στα χρόνια της ερήμωσης" (Hibernation/Neanderthal Stench) - 12
Χειμερία Νάρκη επιστρέφει, 14 χρόνια μετά το τελευταίο τους full length (‘Στη Σιωπή Της Αιώνιας Θλίψης’).

ALTERNATIVE "demos 1982" (Antisociety) - 12€ (Blue Vinyl)
Antisociety records has been putting out some very good and vital material lately. First the release of the hard-to-come by ANTISECT e.p and now this!  ALTERNATIVE hail from Scotland and don’t really need an introduction. For those of you out there not familiar, these folks are legends in the early U.K. Anarcho-punk community and have become a staple within the punk scene today. Touring with acts ike CRASS, FLUX OF PINK INDIANS, THE SYSTEM, ANDY T, this gives you the gist of where we’re going musically, lyrically and ideologically. This particular record is their demo recordings from 1982 and have that classic dirge and rawness to it.  Given this was taken from some aged tapes or reels, this has some classic sounds that can only be defined as pure and genuine. Some say these guys were the Scotlands answer to CRASS and hearing their music re-enforces that to some degree. Very strong socio/political lyrics with some classic guitar hooks and driving drums to fuel your punk angst. Get this record and put it into your library of anarcho-collections. It’s a must have.

ANTISECT "demos/live 1982" (Antisociety) - 11€
What we have here is a must have for all obsessive ANTISECT completist like myself. This record consists of two early demos, and two live sets from ’82, before they recorded the ‘In Darkness’ LP. And although the recording quality on this may leave something to be desired it is still very much worth having, in order to appreciate the evolution of the band. The songs themselves are much more raw and primal, short and to the point, and very DISCHARGE influenced (a comparison the band themselves hated, but is undeniable). The live sets featured on the B side are really the best to listen to, as they not only have a better sound and recording quality, but also feel much more representative of the band’s sound. However, the real star of this release is the packaging itself. It has two inserts, filled with tons of live photos, artwork, reviews, interviews, gig flyers, and writings from the band itself, all from the early ‘80’s. It also has an awesome fold out poster. For people like me, who are huge fans of ANTISECT, but aren’t old enough to have been around to see their early days this is an excellent look at the bands history.

ANTIDOTE “thou shalt not kill” (Hellbent) - 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.


ANTI PASTI "the last call" (Radiation) – 12€
Formed in Derbyshire, in early 1978 by vocalist Martin Roper and guitarist Dugi Bell, Anti-Pasti were one of the big names of the 1980-1982 wave of UK punk, lagging only slightly behind The Exploited, GBH, and Discharge in terms of sales and leather-jacketed endorsements. Their debut album, which reached #31 on the UK charts, was originally released on the Rondelet label in 1981. That classic LP is faithfully reproduced here on vinyl with the addition of four bonus tracks from their first single, 1980s 'Four Sore Points'. A milestone in UK political punk!

BESTHOVEN "dis means war" (Agipunk) - 11€
Finally a new Lp for the Brazilian one man d-beat army! Pure d-beat, equally influenced by Anti Cimex/Shitlickers as well as Discharge, and spiced with 80's Brazilian hardcore. All the copies come with silver-foil stamped logo.

BLITZ "voice of generation" (Radiation) – 13€
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. 140 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 "time bomb: early singles & demos collection" (Radiation) - 13€
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!

BLOODY HAMMER - st (Hardcore Victim) - 11€
After a brilliant demo, here's the debut LP from Australia's BLOODY HAMMER, a tough oi!-punk band featuring members of several well known Melbourne hardcore bands, like PISSCHRIST. If you play your CRIMINAL DAMAGE records as much i do you'll dig this hard, as it has the sample simple oi! Inflection combined with the energy and heaviness of hardcore.

BOLT THROWER "spearhead / cenotaph" (Enterrato Recordings) - 12€
Finally pressed on vinyl! Compilation of the troop's two early EPs: 1991's Cenotaph and 1992's Spearhead.

BROKEN BONES "a single decade" (Radiation) - 12€
Broken Bones formed after several members left Discharge. They had a similar sound and, also like Discharge, moved in a more metal direction over the following few years. Broken Bones quickly moved to the front ranks of the UK hardcore punk scene, mixing the raw drive of early hardcore with the power of metal to move into the forefront of the then-burgeoning crossover scene. This LP compiles the band's tracks from their 1980s singles: Crucifix - 7" - 1984, Decapitated - 7" - 1983, Seeing Through My Eyes - 10" - 1985, Never Say Die - 12" - 1986 and one bonus track.

BROKEN BONES "bonecrusher" (Radiation) - 12€
Originally released on the Combat Core label in 1985, and meant as a USA-only release, 'Bonecrusher' features some of the most beloved Broken Bones tracks. Moving towards a more metallic approach, compared to the hc fury of their debut, this release helped the band (with ex-Discharge members) build a USA fan-base that included, among others, names like Tom Araya from Slayer, and James Hetfield from Metallica, who both still acknowledge them as one of their main influences!

BROKEN BONES “demo 1988” (F.O.A.D.) - 14€
The rare B.B. demo 1988 until now available only as digital files, for the very first time on vinyl! LINE-UP: Bones – guitar, Tezz – vocals, Bazz – drums, Darren – bass. 6 songs, total Hardcore attack with a metallic touch. BROKEN BONES were one of the first bands to start crossing over the worlds of metal, hardcore, and punk, as their extremely aggressive sound required something that wasn’t done being a lot at the time. This recording has it all, thrashing guitar aggression and a speeded up d-beat drumming topped by absolutely caustic vocals!  Specially mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement studio.  Includes an insert with unreleased photos!

CHANNEL 3 "CH3" (Radiation) - 12€
Originally released on venerable Posh Boy Records in 1981, and reissued on the legendary UK label No Future to support their ever-growing European fan base, the "CH3" EP started the long and twisted career of one of the longest running bands among the prime movers of California Punk Rock. Hailing from the thriving community of Cerritos, whose frantic rhythms provided a natural soundtrack for boredom and outrageous alcohol abuse, Channel 3 were was formed by friends-since-third-grade Mike Magrann and Kim Gardener in 1980. Even though after their 'CH3' 12" and the seminal "Fear Of Life" LP the band kept moving towards a more technical approach, experimenting with other forms of music, their early production remains an archetype of young, angry, desperate suburban California punk rock. This enhanced reissue on Radiation also features their "I'll Take My Chances" 7", tracks from compilations, as well as the group’s 'lost' anthem: "Indian Summer". File next to: Adolescents, Black Flag, TSOL and Social Distortion.

CHAOS UK "total chaos (the singles collection)" (Radiation Reissues) - 12€
Promoted as the “fastest and noisiest” band in the cosmos, Chaos UK may not be exactly the kind of band who reserve their hits for their singles, but they sure lined up the most immediate and chaotic, and the effect of ‘Total Chaos’, 19 tracks of pure magic mayhem, is not dissimilar from having your head run over by a tank. A band whose contribution to the world of noise and distortion has been rarely equaled, Chaos UK’s legacy still stems from their 1982 singles ‘Burning Britain’ and ‘Loud Political and Uncompromising’, here collected along with their full 1983 first 12” and their contribution to the Riotous Assembly compilation.

CHAOS UK "short sharp shock" (Radiation) - 12€
Originally released on the small "Children Of The Revolution" label back in 1984, Short Sharp Shock is Chaos UK's own masterpiece, and their first 12" recorded with the classic Mower/Chuck/Gabba/Chaos line up. This has a much more abrasive feel to it than their debut, great blown out drum sound. This is the official repress on Radiation Records.

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.


COCK SPARRER "shock troops" (Pirates Press) - 18€
Shock Troops is the debut album by punk rock band COCK SPARRER released in 1982 on Razor Records. Now available through Pirates Press Records in claret/blue colored vinyl, this pinnacle record is something that should be available and affordable to everyone looking to invest in some punk roots. These uncoated jackets are top notch and the mastering for vinyl has this sounding better than it ever has! For the kids. a true punk classic.

CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “life in grave” (F.O.A.D.) - 18€ (Die-Hard)
Grave” by California speed freaks Cryptic Slaughter was unleashed and quickly became a collectors’ item. Now, five years later, we’re proud to announce the second coming of that incredible full throttle hardcore maelstrom with a brand new colour pattern! Now, let’s get a bit more in detail with the release:
2nd pressing of this thrashing speedcore classic with blue background  on the cover (the previous pressing was red)! California’s pioneers CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER team up with FOAD Records for an incredible vinyl treasure finally giving the right treatment to their legendary “Life in grave” Demotape 1985 and to an accurate selection of ultra-rare/unreleased recordings ranging from their 3 piece line-up era (1985) to the “Convicted”/”Money talks” days. This release has been in the works for months until we found the top sounding masters in existence and restored them for the best possible audiophile result when pressed on vinyl. Side A includes the band’s Demotape “Life in grave” adding 2 rehearsal tracks from the same period, one is a speeded up HELLHAMMER cover and one is a super-raw version of VENOM‘s “Welcome to hell“. Side B is all focused on the “Convicted”/”Money talks” 4 piece line-up and includes various live recordings and a good sounding rehearsal 1986. All songs here are performed even faster than how they were played on their classic albums.
This is how Goodbadmusic.com introduced “Life in grave”: “1985 was a good year for music – bands like SLAUGHTER, NYC MAYHEM, VOOR, WEHRMACHT, HIRAX, DEATH, REPULSION and CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER amazed me and they still blow me away today! Especially this one here with its youthful urgency, its unpolished power and enthusiasm. And stilistically, this was very refreshing. Could you say whether this is more metal or more HC? Does it matter to you?” Being this one of the most important FOAD releases to date, we also dedicated the right passion to the packaging: a stunning gatefold sleeve and most of all a 36 PAGE zine/booklet stuffed with rare photos, interviews, zine excerpts and gig flyers. If you’re into any kind of fast music be it Thrash, Hardcore, Grind or Power Violence, you are MAD if you miss this!!!! 

DIRECT CONTROL "bucktown hardcore" (Tank Crimes) - 14€
Finally on vinyl, this record collects 24 tracks of DIRECT CONTROL's oldest and most obscure work including the cult 2003 demo, the "public safety" session, and the "war all the time" demo from 2002. The now-defunct band invaded the mid-2000s with fast, perfectly executed hardcore played in the same style as KORO and early C.O.C.. Classic '80s style hardcore done correctly!

EXECUTE "antagonistic shadow" (Harto De Todo) - 14€
From what I read on the liner notes this would appear to be The Executes one and only full length. Most people would remember them from the Split 12" with German punk's Inferno released on Pushead's label. This is way less thrashy than their earlier work and as with Gastunk they seem to have taken a large influence from UK heavy weights like the Southern Death Cult and Killing Joke. This is a great record for those sombre moments, it has a lot of really nice guitar work and some awesome vocals. "The Human of the Ghoul" now is that an awesome song title or what!! Originally released in 1988.

EXISTENZ "lets get drunk before it's too lates" (Hepcat) - 18 (Red Vinyl)
Existenz was formed in Helsingborg 1981 and released their first Ep ”Listen” in 1983. The Ep was quickly sold out and is today a very hard to find collector’s item. In 1984 their follow up ”Let´s get drunk before it´s too late was recorded and at that time their first bass player Roland Olsson left the band and David Butolen joined the band. It is this lineup, Jyrki, Jocke, David and Stefan Existenz are most known for. Gigs were played all over Sweden/Denmark with bands like The Bristles, Asta Kask, Anti-Cimex and many more.
In the autumn of 1984 three gigs were played in London with bands like Uk Subs, Vibrators and One way System. In the summer of 1985 a mini tour was made from north to south of England with bands like Varukers, Instigators and Urban Dogs.
Since a year and a half Existenz are reunited in the original line-up and have this autumn played a number of highly acclaimed gigs with bands like Sator and Shuvit. Re release 500 copies red vinyl.

THE FACTION are quit alive and well and still playing out to this day!

HIRAX “born in the streets 1983/1984” LP + booklet (F.O.A.D.) - 16€
Demo 1983 for the first time on vinyl! Instead of the savage thashin’ assault met on albums such as “Raging violence“, these early HIRAX recordings are a pure incarnation of denim smelling and fast Heavy Metal, at times showing a NWOBHM influence. Every song is a riff-fest from beginning to end topped with fierce guitar solos and the absolutely amazing vocals of Katon.  The 4 track Demo 1984 has been ripped and remastered from the best source around, then you’ll find 3 unreleased songs 1983-84 (“To be free”, “The saviour”, “War hero”) and the very hard to find LA KAOS (pre-Hirax) demotape ripped straight from Katon’s personal copy! And to complete the FOAD quality treatment, you’ll also find a booklet including liner notes, lyrics, rare photos, ‘zine excerpts and flyers!
Katon W. De Pena about this release:  “You hold in your hand something very special. This record / album is HIRAX’s first time in the recording studio. This release also includes music from a pre-HIRAX era. We hope to give the listeners high quality with never before seen photos, lyrics, flyers, reviews, memorabilia, etc. We have to go back in time… the year was 1983… getting ready to turn over to 1984… (I was 20 years old) …” (continued on the LP booklet!).

HOLLYWOOD BRATS "sick on you" (Radiation) DOUBLE LP - 20€
RECORD STORE DAY EDITION. Praised by Keith Moon as "the greatest band" he'd ever seen and ignored or hated by just about everybody else in London at the time, The Hollywood Brats left a mark on 70s rock music and the development of punk that was rivaled only by their US counterparts, The New York Dolls. The Brats trafficked in a particular brand of post-Stones snotty rock and glam that presaged the punk era by a half decade. They recorded a fantastic LP in the early 70s but were unable to find a label and eventually disbanded in 1975, just before their album was finally released in Norway. Now fetching several hundred dollars for an original copy this 2LP RSD 2018 release fills that void at a fraction of the price, and with 15 bonus tracks to boot! Classic lost proto-punk and glam LP that directly influenced the first wave of UK punk. An essential collection in a RSD 2018 limited edition of 500 copies!

IMPALERS "psychedelic snutskallar" (Static Shock) - 13€
In the modern climate of music, nothing sticks. Every week there is a new cool 7" or tape making the rounds on social media, littering your feed with Bandcamp demos and Instragamed cassette j cards. It's hard to keep up, yet an amazing time of stimulation and excitement for punks worldwide. But in the midst of all this madness - it's nice to know you can count on Impalers every year to release the best record of the year. Unless you live under a rock, you probably already know what to expect from these guys. Their LP last year topped year end charts high and low. And Psychedelic Snutskallar does damage in all the same places. Peerless d-beat, a work of art. Completely unhinged yet tight and in the pocket. This time they have upped the ante with a monstrous opening track that takes up the whole A side at a never boring 11 minute length. Tripped out artwork and packing concept by Sam Ryser (Crazy Spirit, Dawn of Humans, Dripper World) and reworked material from short lived side project Sick Plot make this 12" EP a no brainer. 500 copies pressed.

KINA "nessuno schema nella mia vita" (Spittle) LP + CD  16€
Spittle  Records present a reissue of Kina's Nessuno Schema Nella Mia Vita, originally released on tape in 1984. Available here for the first time in a remastered version, these 11 pieces of pure hardcore punk baptized one of the greatest band in the Italian scene. Formed in Aosta -- on the boundaries with Switzerland (north) and France (west) -- in 1982 by Sergio (drums), Alberto (guitar), and Giampiero (bass) and active till 1997, the band was one of the most influential of the continental hardcore/punk scene with political lyrics and a straightforward approach. Includes CD.

LIP CREAM "kill ugly pop" (Rats) - 14€ (Clear Vinyl)
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. Handnumbered release of 500 in foldover jacket. Includes poster and insert.

MORPHEME "discography" (Agipunk) - 13€
NOIZE! NOIZE! NOIZE! The long awaited complete dischography by one of the noisiest bands in the world will be finally available on vinyl and it'll be ready for their forthcoming European tour that will start at K-town warm up show in Malmo.

NO TREND "too many humans" (Euro Fan) - 14€
Noisy, misanthropic, uncomfortable and nihilistic, No Trend's 1984 debut album remains a dark gem of anti/social American Noise Punk Rock. In the vein of luminaries such as Flipper or "My War" era Black Flag, No trend crowned their selves kings of anti/hardcore with a confrontational attitude against punk clichés and convention that gained them as many fans as enemies (or maybe more of the latest). This Lp is a violent trip into the American nightmare, a painfully underrated masterpiece filled with anger, chaos and vile from a band that always went against the norm. Essential. 

OPPRESSED "dead & buried" (Radiation) - 12€
Originally released by Oi Records, this LP contains two singles and a demo recorded in 1983 from this Welsh, anti-racist skinhead band.
The Oppressed is an Oi-band formed in 1981 in Cardiff (Wales) led by Rody Moreno. They are one of the main ANTI-RACIST groups within the movement, this is expressed in their reviews, interviews and letters from their canciones. Next to their clear political opinion they deliver great music which to me is more rooted to punk than to crappy distight oi!

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!


RAW DEAL "demo 1988" (Killing Time) - 18€ (Grey Vinyl)
Before KILLING TIME there was RAW DEAL. It seems they changed their name after being threatened with a lawsuit by another band of the same name. This is the legendary 7 track demo, reissued on a 12" by the band to celebrate their 30th annyversary. Some of the best NYHC tunes ever written feature on this piece of wax.

RAW POWER “wop hour – extended version” (F.O.A.D.) - 15€
Italy’s undisputed godfathers of furious Hardcore since 1981 team up again with F.O.A.D. Records to unearth another classic from their 80s discography enriched with a hailstorm of bonus gems! This LP includes their insane “Wop Hour” EP (1985) an adrenalinic assault of rapid thrashing HC delivered with ballistic tightness… plus an incredible selection of bonus tracks, part of which were never heard before. You’ll find all the bonus songs that were already included in the extended CD version and two unreleased soundboard live rippers: Fiorenzuola 1984 and Amsterdam 1986. The first – still with Giuseppe on vocals – sees these maniacs smashing the stage with a devastating set including a totally unreleased song (“Police Harassment“), some rare ones from their first demo ’83 and covers of BLACK FLAG and DISCHARGE (!!), the second – taking the whole B-side of the LP – is just RAW POWER at the top of their game, “Screams from the gutter” setlist and that invincible line-up with Helder on drums with all the hits that you want to hear with a powerful and aggressive sound. 26 SONGS IN TOTAL. Comes with a 8 page booklet with rare photos, flyers and zine excerpts from the mid 80s. Get ready to blast this at top volume and scream “Fuck authority”!!

SEPTIC DEATH "theme from ozobozo" (Toy's Facory) - 14€
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.

SHITLICKERS "1982" (Noise not Music) - 13€
Short-lived side project of Tomas Jonsson from Anti Cimex, Shitlickers is, according to most, the quintessence of hardcore punk: youthful, aggressive and mean: Featuring both their 1982 self-financed singles "GBG 1982" and "Cracked Cop Skulls" this long-awaited 8 tracker gives a little justice to this obscure all-swedish legend in distorted 80's hardcore. 2012 repress with insert.

SOCIAL DISTORTION "white light, white heat, white trash" (Fan Club) - 11€
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.

SOCIAL DISTORTION "sex, love and rock 'n' roll" (Fan Club) - 11€
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.


SWANKYS "never can eat swank dinner" (Rats) - 14€ (Clear Vinyl)
The Swankys were a Japanese punk band from Kyushua island that started out playing Sex Pistols influenced 77-punk before becoming Japan’s first hard core punk band. The Swankys were heavily influenced by the “Bristol” bands Disorder, Chaos UK and Chaotic Dischord. Once the Swankys had started playing the more aggressive hard core punk style repeated violence at shows quickly banned the band from local gig venues forcing the band to change name to Gai for about a year. Under the name Gai they released an first class hardcore album in the beginning of the 80s before they changed name to The Swankys again. As Swankys they performed 77 style punk. Their album “Never Can Eat Swank Dinner” was released in 1987 and still remains as one of the most unknown classics from the Japanese underground scene. The Swankys always looked like a much cooler version of the Sex Pistols, too. The guitar player used to wear a sunhat and a golden, silk shirt in order to demonstrate his Japanese-ness, which was undoubtedly more punk than all the homogenised, carefully-manicured Londoners in their matching studded jackets and leather trousers. Handnumbered release of 500 in foldover jacket. Includes poster and insert.

TRAGEDY s/t (Skuld) – 13€
Official Repress of the first TRAGEDY Album on Skuld Releases, this time in the original package of the US Pressing (Tragedy Records) - From the opening acoustic intro to the last dark, thrashed out note this is one seriously intense album. The obvious comparisons His Hero Is Gone and From Ashes Rise are there for sure but to me this has a bit more of a straight up hardcore feel to it. That said though, this has some excellent heavy pounding drum beats happening and some changes in pace, pitch and mood that are so tight and sudden they scream for your attention. The harsh throaty vocals belt out lyrics that are written as single block paragraphs dealing with overtly sociopolitical issues all looked at from a less than positive point of view. This record is very heavy, very angry and although you will probably like it, it will not make you happy!


VARUKERS "another religion another war" (Havoc) - 12€
Another one of my favorite records of the 80's re issued on my own label. As a die hard fan and collector, it is such a thrill to be able to re press release like this and see my label logo at the bottom. I bought this record when it came out in 1984 (I was 15) and I have been crazy about it ever since. Varukers and Discharge were the two most raging and intense of the  UK bands to ratchet punk up to hardcore speed and power in the early 80's. This LP sees Varukers delivering top notch hardcore punk, the guitar tone and riffage are savage, the vocals raw and powerful. The guitar has a bit of the metallic crunch that would permeate hardcore in the future, but still remains grounded in punk. This Lp ranks with Discharge "Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing" as an example of UK hardcore punk at it's very best.

VARUKERS "bloodsuckers" (Radiation) - 13€
The Varukers were one of the first groups of the UK 82 movement - the second generation of punk rock that took the spirit of '77 and merged it with the incessant beat of NWOBHM, responsible for creating UK hc. Heavily inspired by Discharge, The Varukers recorded three 7-inches in the early '80s before this, their first and most definitive album, released in 1983 on the legendary Riot City Records (Vice Squad, Abrasive Wheels, Chaos U.K.). Back in print on LP, 'Bloodsuckers' is one of the definitive pieces of early UK hc, full of Sabbath inspired guitar work, pounding rhythms and aggressive anarchistic lyrical content. ESSENTIAL!

VICTIMS "neverendinglasting" (Farewell) - 11€
Official re-release by VICTIMS "neverendinglasting". In addition to the original tracks this LP includes the songs from the 1st 7" and the split 7" with ACURSED. You'll get 23 tracks in total of "neverendinglasting" d-beat hardcore power! The LP comes with the original full-colored artwork.

VICTIMS "in blood" (Havoc) - 11€
Crushing 2nd album from one of Sweden's top hardcore bands. VICTIMS' sound is obviously compared to SKITSYSTEM, WOLFBRIGADE and other d-beat ragers from Scandinavia. However, VICTIMS have more of a solid old-school thrash back bone. Vinyl comes with a poster as well as a lyricsheet.

VICTIMS "divide and conquer" (Havoc) - 11€
Third full length from Sweden's Victims. This is one of my favorite bands of recent years because they flawlessly mix my two favorite styles of music, Early 80's American Hadcore and Swedish Crust. This record rises to the challenge of mixing two such potent styles with great vigor. Really hot memorable riffs and smoking guitar work from Jon  Lindqvist (also of Accursed, Nasum, Saayadina etc) and Johan's vocals sound like he has been gargling with napalm.  This LP reminds me of a lot of the first wave of LPs from hardcore bands in the early 80s. In 81 you had this wave of great raw and fast 7"s from the new hardcore bands. By 84 most of these bands had developed their style and developed enough songs for a full length and had the experience to enter a quality studio and record a solid and memorable LP. Victims on this release have reached a point where skill and experience have culminated in one totally raging track after another, without changing their sound, selling out or crossing over.

VICTIMS "killer" (Havoc/Combat Rock Industry) - 11€
"Κiller" is the ripping 4th album from Sweden's crazy d-beat rockers! VICTIMS have been the front of Swedish hardcore for many years mixing traditional Swedish d-beat and crust sounds with more straight forward American hardcore influences. This full-length has all the tight and crushing arrangements you'd expect from this crew. A few more songs leaning towards the d-beat rock 'n' roll end of hardcore, but over all very much in the same punishing tradition of the last 2 releases. Raw hardcore at its best from one of the most popular bands in the genre.


WHITE PIGS "hardcore years 1983/85" (Vomitopunkrock) - 16€
The White Pigs formed in CT in 1980 out of the ashes of Zak and the Soda Boys. Lead singer Dave Death came up with the name as a goof on a neighborhood dog that used to shit all over the place. That line up did one Shamrock Pub show, then because of inner band problems disbanded.
In 1982 singer Brian Ripthroat and original founding member bassist Keith Grave agreed to reform the band, but it took until the summer of 1983 to locate drummer George Butterrick (formerly of the Separates) and guitarist Chuck Duncan, to get the band rolling again. They then released their self-titled 7″ EP on Switch Kwilson Productions.
They released a second 7″ in 1984 called Evil Stalks the Innocent on their Songs Of Sin label. It was recorded live and they came on red vinyl. At the end of that year is when they appeared on the aforementioned compilation and had recorded the demo tape.
That leads us to their final release as a band, an EP on Combat Records that featured a different lineup than on the earlier works. After this came out, the band called it quits. It would be a few years before the posthumous 7″ on Mystic Records and the LP on Walkthrufyre would be released.
This LP included their first demo tape recorded in 1983, first s/t e.p (1984) and their EP "hit bonanza" released on Mystic Records in 1989 but recorded in 1985 and released as demo.

WORLD BURNS TO DEATH "totalitarian sodomy" (Hardcore Holocaust) - 15€
Second release from this Austin, TX powerhouse. More melodic riffs than their previous records, but way heavier and more pounding. The LP comes with a massive booklet and S.K.V. cover art (GISM/Beat Arts).

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.




NEW ARRIVALS & RESTOCKS - 11.06.2018
LP's
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.

EXIT ORDER "seed of hysteria" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
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.

RIXE "collection" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Collection neatly compiles RIXE's first 3 Eps on one album. All 12 cuts have been remastered for maximum volume. Rixe appeared from nowhere and went from strength to strength over the two years since the Debut EP Coup Et Blessures was released in February 2015. The EP was their calling card and harked back to the glory years of Bologna's finest Nabat mixed with the classic 80's French Oi! sound. It was instant and loved by all and went on to have six pressings. A year later came Les Nerf A Vif - another four tracker with extra bite and bile. Every track was perfectly recorded and produced. Lean with snarl and each track a nugget of anthemic Oi!. On third EP Bapteme Du Feu there was no let up in quality...  more.

S.H.I.T. "what do you stand for?" (La Vida En Us Mus/ Iron Lung) - 14€
A brief but dense dose of simply hulking intense turmoil. Subtle terminology is trite, so to get to the point: S.H.I.T., the LP, blurs by in under twenty minutes of thrashing hardcore gristle. Gone are the tell-tale training wheels of delayed vocals and endless layers of feedback, here now are the tighter louder songs we'd hoped S.H.I.T. would write. A piercing musical rallying cry for the listless and ever approaching bulldoze march of the future, wrapped in cellophane transfers of melted early hardcore and the best of the last decade's fresh take on simplicity and power.
What do you Stand for? comes housed in a sleeve designed by legendary hc punk outsider and former S.H.I.T. designer, Jaybo. The intricately illustrated hellish image was produced with bleach onto a massive bedsheet, though the entire package is wrapped in a self censored outer sleeve, seemingly in the service of protecting the purchaser's dignity. Additional design by Ryan Tong.

THE VILLIONS "memories of scent" (Geheimnis) - 15€
"The Villions" is a dark wave / post punk band formed in 2012 in Athens, Greece. Its main core was - and still is - Dimitris Kolias (guitars) and Alex Kousoulakos (vocals-bass). Their influences can be traced easily in the 80's sounds of the post punk and dark wave bands of the era, while their dark lyrics are based on poems and novels by Dimitris Kolias. Their name is also inspired by a novel of Dimitris Kolias - "The Villions" are human beings as would be in the future, who've reached the upper levels of mental state of consciousness. The final form of human evolution. They live in harmony without physical form, using only their minds."
They started rehearsing back in 2012 with the addition of Harris Kal (drums), Orlok Davis (bass) and Marianna (keyboards). During the next year (2013) they appeared in public in various live stages, performing the songs that, eventually at the end of that year, would consist their first ever album. It was recorded at "Freefall Studios" and included 12 tracks that defined their sound during that time. The song "Doubts", which was included in Geheimnis Records' compilation "No Radar", was taken from that specific album session. Due to arguments and personal disagreements, that first line-up split up and the album was never released. In September 2013, with the addition of new members (Renée J. Kay on keyboards and Vasilis "The Union Man" - bass) the band started to perform again, although, their second active period would end by mid 2014 after the departure of the drummer and the bass player. They started auditioning in order to replace the missing members, but after a while the search halted, since the remaining members were too much occupied with their personal jobs. They haven't quitted their efforts though, they are still rehearsing and producing new material.
March 2018 : After 5 years of waiting, Geheimnis Records will release this lost album, in 210 hand-numbered, black vinyl copies, including all 12 original songs + the instrumental track "Fear To The Sea", which was recorded during the same era. Comes with an insert with all details, lyrics and a download code for free digital download.

KOHTI TUHOA "pelon neljäs valtakunta" (Svart) - 17€
Kohti Tuhoa’s debut was considered by many as the most exciting hardcore punk record out of Scandinavia in ages. Their sophomore album Pelon neljäs valtakunta is constructed from similar building blocks but with the band’s sound taking a step further towards genre classicists such as Discharge and Disorder, not to mention classic Finnish hardcore punk acts such as Terveet Kädet, Varaus, Riistetyt.

NEANDERTHAL "complete fighting music" (Fan Club) - 8€
Alongside Infest, Crossed Out and No Comment, Neanderthal define everything I love about power violence. At times, they had the speed of other thrashcore/grindcore bands, but they also had the ultra-slow, sludgy aggression and power in their music that ended up redefining a genre, primarily due to their bass heavy sound. Some say they are the first powerviolence band, i think they are definitely an integral part of the hardcore/powerviolence evolution. Sickest record, this e.p. truly defines the term "powerviolence" before it became a household name. Complete discography (8 Songs) release was planned on Slap A Ham Records, but it never came out, anyway bootlegers don't sleep and they took matters into their own hands. Limited to 300 copies.

AUS-ROTTEN "…and now back to our programming” (Profane Existence) - 15€
The second studio LP from AUS-ROTTEN, originally released in 1998, is back in print on PROFANE EXISTENCE! Considered by many to be the highlight of AUS-ROTTEN’s discography, “And Now Back To Our Programming” is an absolutely essential anarcho-punk LP, and the rapid fire delivery of righteous political anger AUS-ROTTEN are famous for is just as prevalent on this release as it is on all AUS-ROTTEN records. From the second the needle drops this LP challenges you to be the change you want to see in the world. 7 songs in total including the epic 16-minute title track.

AUS-ROTTEN "the system works for them” (Profane Existence) - 15€
Finally Re-issued after 20 years! - Originally pressed in 1996 PROFANE EXISTENCE is bringing this quintessential anarcho-punk masterpiece back in circulation.
In 1996 AUS-ROTTEN released their first LP “The System Works For Them” on an unsuspecting punk scene. It spread like wildfire in a pre internet era within a genre that mostly depended on tape trading. (at least is was pre internet for us penniless punks) “The System Works For Them” was the perfect mix of anger and intelligence that the scene needed at the time (and still does today). It was like a wake up call that opened the eyes and ears to many punks the world over. The messages where crystal clear and most us were hooked as soon as the beginning shouts of “Boycott” bellowed over the speakers. I don’t believe any of us ever expected their message to resonate so well within the scene, but even more surprising is how the songs are just as relevant today as on they the day they were written. Which is why PROFANE EXISTENCE has decided to repress this record. We feel that that messages that AUS-ROTTEN brought to the table are to powerful to ignore. We feel that this LP is important and therefore should be highly available and priced affordably. We feel that those that would charge over exorbitant prices on eBay or Discogs have forgotten the message.
PROFANE EXISTENCE has worked this out to ever last detail of this release with the members of AUS-ROTTEN whom have been involved from step one. All tracks have been re-masted by Jay Matherson at the Jamroom studios. To be 100% honest we didn’t want to do a complete re-master of what we already considered a good recording. However when we opened the tracks on protools we noticed a few balance issues that required fixing. These fixes resulted in a tremendous upgrade to the overall quality of the tracks. We painstakingly scanned, puzzled, and photoshopped the original artwork to make sure that it was as close to authentic as it could possible be. We then went for broke by pressing in three different vinyl color combinations! Overall to say that we are pumped to release this would be an understatement, we are absolutely ecstatic to bring you this LP on PROFANE EXISTENCE!

BAD BREEDING "abandonment" (One Little Indian Records) - 13€
Bad Breeding have returned with a brand new EP - a riotous, impassioned statement about the frustration of the UK's marginalised majority - Abandonment. The Stevenagebred anarcho punks have just signed to One Little Indian Records for the release of their EP of the same name, the Abandonment EP. The band's affinity to label founder Derek Birkett's '80s punk band Flux of Pink Indians made OLI a natural home for the rising political punk band, as well as their now-labelmate Crass' Penny Rimbaud.

DISTURBANCE ‎"tox populi" (Dirty Punk) - 13
Disturbance come from Rotterdam, Netherlands By now Disturbance is one of best known and longest surviving punk bands from the Netherlands, consisting out of Rob (vocals), Dim (guitar), Joz (bass) and Jo (drums). They play their own style of punk, inspired by 82 streetpunk. Disturbance has been around since the mid-nineties, and has built a vast list of gigs playing from Europe and beyond.

FALL OF EFRAFA "inle" (Alerta Antifascista) DOUBLE LP - 21€
Restock! - The long awaited final chapter of "The Warren Of Snares" trilogy, FALL OF EFRAFA conclude their mythological tale of an uprising against an oppressive system, based upon an interpretation of the classic novel "Watership Down" by Richard Adams. "Inle" is crushing yet beautiful, ambient and atmospheric heavey post hardcore, bringing to mind the likes of Neurosis, Buried Inside, Envy, Earth And Godspeed you black emperor.

HERESY "face up to it! 30th anniversary edition" (Boss Tuneage) DOUBLE LP + CD - 22
If you mention HERESY's "FACE UP TO IT!" album many people will tell you what a great album it was, let down by horrendous production. Now, 30 years since it was recorded, the band undertook a mammoth project to make the album finally sound how they had envisaged
The original multi track master tapes were unearthed and baked to allow a transfer of all the raw recorded material and for the band to do a totally ground up restoration/remix on not only the original album, but also the rest of the session that included the bonus tracks originally only released on the Japanese version of the album "Voice Your Opinion"
To say that the results have been remarkable would be an understatement and have exceeded the bands own expectations - turns out underneath the muddy production there was a phenomenal album just waiting to get out!
But don't just take my word for it, listen to two tracks here to see the amazing difference...
So we proudly present FACE UP TO IT! in 2018, sounding as the band hoped it would in 1988! And because its a special release, we have gone to town on the packaging! Three Sided Vinyl LP (the original album plus one sided 12") Packaged for this first pressing only in gatefold sleeve, with additional insert and a CD in PVC wallet of all tracks! Featuring liner notes from all band members.

OJO POR OJO - st (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
A sonic auto-da-fé, the OJO POR OJO debut LP is an exercise in modern Mexican costumbrismo. Crude and primitive, the band’s aural vomit is a sharp-eyed comment on the trip through the guts of the monster that living in Mexico City has become. Where crime and filth reigns supreme among a society driven by chronic malinchismo and constant life fear. OJO POR OJO follows the path laid out by bands such as INSERVIBLES or RATAS DEL VATICANO while borrowing heavily from Greek gods ΑΝΤΙΔΡΑΣΗ, Colombian demigods PARABELLUM and Italian deities NERORGASMO. Lacking pretence, this Stations of the Cross-like album has 10 tracks instead of 14 and is a raw portrayal of everyday life in the place where the District Federal trio live.
Comes packed in a macabre masterpiece created between drummer Mico and guitarist/ vocalist Yecatl Peña which painstakingly depicts the current collective mental state of a nation. Includes a lyric sheet and a disturbing yet normalised picture, depicting a petty thief lynched by locals in Ecatepec. A seemly weekly happening in the Ciudad de Mexico.

SICK HORSE "good body feeling" (Static Age) - 14€
Big, groovy, psychedelic, post-punk rock debut LP by Berlins' unpredictable, multi-dysfunctional, multinational hipster-boy group. As majestic, tragic, delirious and powerful as...well, a sick horse. Buy it." Sig Vishnu (Heavy Metal) "Sick horse play loud. Sick horse play hard. Sick horse play tight. And if you don't like the songs it doesn't fuckin matter cos they've been up for two days and they didn't miss a beat." Daryl Sulfate (Diät)

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

INTENSIVE CARE "demos 1983 - 1985" (Vomitopunkrock) - 17€
New release coming very soon from Vomitopunkrock Records, and this time it's Intensive Care that gets the VPR treatment. Demos now on vinyl, these were recorded between 1983 and 1985.

RAKTA s/t (540) - 15€
This music is equal parts post-punk and incantation, and is psych-hook laden as hell. Ratka is an all-female band from Sao Paulo, Brazil that seem to have come from out of nowhere to make most of the current post-punk/anarcho wave completely irrelevant. Their music is equal parts post-punk and incantation, and is psych-hook laden as hell. The record comes with a red and black on white poster that only adds to the mysterious bruxa vibes that the music gives. Each copy comes with 1 of 4 different 24"x36" silk screened poster.

THIRD WORLD CHAOS "new move for error" (Fan Club) - 13€
European pressing of this cult Philippine hardcore punk band from the early 1980s. I don't know the story behind this band, but the sound here is very similar to So Cal bands like Adolescents, Channel 3, etc. fast paced catchy melodic hc/punk. Really great stuff from a band that's almost uknown outside the Philippines.

XPOZEZ "singles kill l.p." (Vomitopunkrock) - 17€
This is a band that has never been remembered with the affection it deserves; often more only as the first band of INSTIGATORS vocalist, Andy 'Tez' Turner. This collects the band’s five singles released between 1981 and 1985, "Systems Kill E.P." (1981), "1,000 Marching Feet" (1982), "(Be My) New York Doll" (1983), "Burntout Youth" (1984) and "Forcefed The Truth Drug EP" (1985). Highlight has to be the ‘Forcefed The Truth Drug’ EP that highlights the band’s ‘82 Punk sound in ‘Manipulator’ while ‘Libido A Go Go’ shows the more adventurous sounds Tez would explore in the ‘GATORS. To my ears, this still holds up really well 30 years on since it was recorded and a damn sight better than some of the more lauded bands of the same era. Another fantastic reissue from Vomitopunkrock.

BLAZING EYE - st (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
Originally released in USA on Los Angeles based Overdose Records and selling both presses of the record immediately. LVEUM finally makes BLAZING EYE's debut EP available in Europe in preparation of what we hope will be BLAZING EYE tour next year.
Hailing from Los Angeles BLAZING EYE sound lay somewhere between ZOUO, THE SEXUAL and QLOAQA LETAL. That is Japanese inspired hardcore punk with demonic vocals and hard as nail beats which is extremely hard to shake once you hear it. The four distorted tracks on this EP mix perfectly the low end reverb soaked Japanese influences with the best of the International Hardcore Punk of the early 80's. Making it a masterpiece of timeless punk.


MAREE NOIRE - s/t (Destructure) - 5€
Here is the vinyl repress of the MAREE NOIRE demo we released last autumn. Their first recording is now available on a 7", 4 songs of implacable d-beat hardcore emergency. These guys music and words sound like a response to an oppressive and crushing world, a frank and direct blow. MAREE NOIRE is made by some (still young) punk veterans who played in an impressive number of bands and still play in bands like Better Off Dead, Bleakness and Syndrome 81 just to name a few. Expect some disillusioned vitriolic lyrics in French. It's another Destructure release recorded and mixed at the great Swan Sound studio by Guillaume Doussaud. The regular cover is a dark and realistic drawing by Barcelona based tattoo artist Sztuka Wojny but we've also made a limited "Détruire la France" cover edition that should leave no one indifferent…

THE BLEACH BOYS "fur cough from the grave" (Rave Up) - 14€
Punk Rock hadn't really hit small town England in 1976, but when it did, it hit like a neutron bomb. The Bleach Boys took their cue from the American punk scene; they blended fast guitars and relentless drums with their own unique brand of humour, creating a sound of their own. In the following weeks after their first show in early '77, they were banned from many local venues as their notorious reputation spread. During this year, in order to get gigs in the thriving London punk scene, they recorded several demos; 'Cardboard Cutouts' and 'Oral Sex' which feature on this record and haven't been released until now. This secured them gigs at popular venues with bands such as Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Damned, Radio Birdman, ATV, UK Subs, Slaughter And The Dogs and The Vibrators. "Fur Cough From the Grave" is an anthology featuring unreleased demos and rarities and their two well known rare singles, 'Chloroform' ('78) and 'Stocking Clad Nazi Death Squad Bitches' ('83), making this a highly collectable item. It was once said that The Bleach Boys are 'Punk's best kept secret', but as this record shows, there's nothing quiet about them.... 450 copies ltd!

CHAOS U.K. "burning britain" (Let Them Eat) DOUBLE LP – 20€
Double album compiling their first album, singles and some demo tracks. Limited to 1000 copies.

CRUCIFIX "nineteen eighty four" (Corpus Christi) - 14€
Fan press reproduction similar to Exhibit A. compilation by Kustomized Music, only missing is the CBGB live tracks. 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.

DEAD KENNEDYS "bedtime for democracy" (Manifesto) - 17
Dead Kennedys were one of the most popular and important American hardcore punk bands of the late '70s/early '80s. They formed in San Francisco in 1978 when East Bay Ray placed an ad in a music paper that vocalist Jello Biafra responded to. They were soon joined by bassist Klaus Flouride, drummer Ted and a second guitarist known to posterity simply as 6025. The latter departed in March of 1979, while Ted was replaced at the very end of 1980 by D.H. Peligro.
It wasn't too long before the band gained a considerable following around San Francisco. Live, DKs were a combination of chaos and theatrics. Their sound could be described as a cross between the Sex Pistols and the Ventures. Underpinned by an acute sense of humor, their songs satirized the twin elements of extreme violence and conservatism that characterize much of American life.
After deciding to call it quits in January of 1986, the Dead Kennedys completed the recording of Bedtime For Democracy later that year, their fourth and final full-length release. Despite the impending doom, the band rocked as tight as ever, with Ray's voodoo/surf guitar, Flouride's thumping bass and Peligro's skin bashing providing the perfect "sturm und drang" for Biafra's words. Their swan song is comprised of 21-tracks including "Chickenshit Conformist" which sums up the band's apathetic view on the state of the genre they helped shape with lyrics like, "Punk's not dead, it just deserves to die." Classic political punk rock, often imitated, never duplicated!

EVEN WORSE "we suck! the lost 1982 album" (Radiation) - 16€
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.

HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS "stay home" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Two years ago HANK WOOD asked us to go home, they were young and pissed off and they wrote what in my humble opinion was hands down the best album of that year. In the two years since 2012 HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS have been playing sporadically, gaining fans with every show and selling out show after show in their native NYC. Their irreverent live show is incendiary showing a really angry front man backed by a volatile band playing the nastiest keyboard garage punk you can imagine. Punk without the outfit. All songs no filler. Riffs. They have it. Somehow they managed to spend enough time in the same room to write a perfect follow up to "Go Home".
"Stay Home" sees the band at their peak, they have matured enough to write a masterpiece of dual-drumming-keyboard-driven punk. Their sound is still raw and unpolished, the drummer and percussionist hit hard and the guitar plays a superb mix of surf and classic first wave NYC Punk. I could list all the qualities of this record and praise this band for pages but they had that je ne sais quoi which is impossible to explain. Do yourself a favour, listen to their album and you'll understand. It is free online after all. Or if you feel like it buy a physical copy as there is so much hard work behind this monster.
The European press of "Stay Home" comes in blue and black sleeve, including a 2 colour poster, risographed lyric sheet and hand stamped center label. A beautiful package for an otherwise nasty punk record.

THE KIDS "naughty kids" (Radiation) - 16€
Released a mere eight months after their groundbreaking 1978 self-titled debut LP, The Kids’ second album is a pure masterpiece of straightforward punk rock. A little less raw than their previous material, but still far from the new wave sounds the band started experimenting with on their following records, ‘Naughty Kids’ remains one of the best examples of non-UK '70s Punk and definitely a mandatory addition to the collection of any ‘killed by death’ fanatic! This reissue also features 5 bonus tracks recorded live in 1978. The third 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.

After the split Nicke Andersson however quickly reformed the group as Entombed, but without Hedlund, who then went to form his own band Unleashed.

The family tree of this band is stunning, having spawned acts like Entombed and Unleashed and their trademark sound became the blueprint of a whole scene. This compilation features their three demos ("Prematury Autopsy" 1988, "Only shreds remain" 1989 and "Drowned" 1989) and their "Radiation sickness" EP, the first Entombed demo ("But life goes on" 1989) and some Entombed live tracks as a bonus.

Official repress one of the most important records in Polish punk rock history. Originally released in 1986, the album caught brilliantly the cold, sultry atmosphere of the dark times of last years of communism in Poland. Influenced by British giants like Joy Division or Killing Joke, they composed their own industrial mantras about alienation in totalitarian society. If you are bored by the usual Post Punk/Goth records from the 80's than this is a top tip. recordings, but thankfully these songs are still best appreciated for their enduring power and not just a curious relic from the past.

RIXE - cassette promo  (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
Rixe are back are with a fresh three song attack. “La Clé” is two minutes and twenty seconds of lean, mean and meaty Oi! that only Rixe over the last few years have perfected. It's driving sound is built on razor sharp tight drums, a slightly phased guitar and vocals that bite and bark. “Nuit Rasoir” is another straight down the line pounder that could easily have been one of the first ten releases on No Future Records. “Les Cent Pas” is the final track and rounds off things with another stomper. The sound is bigger, punchier but still very much Rixe that you know and love.  Limited 3 track promo cassette pro copied.

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.

BELGRADO "siglo XXI" (La Vida Es Un Mus) – 14€
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.


BELGRADO "obraz" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
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.

ČAO PIČKE "sonce v očeh" (NE!) LP + CD - 16€ (Black)
Čao Pičke are formed in 1981, from former members of punk and wave band Ljubljana 78 and Orkester Titanik.  As anecdote says, they get name when they enroll their  repertoire for some concert which is organized in front of parliament by three female organizers. On application they write a greeting: »Čao, Pičke« (Hello Pussies), which organizers understand as the name of the band.
The core of the band at first are drummer Jani Sever and bass player Ljubo Kopač – Kope. Vocals are engaged by Alenka Marsenič – Marsa but shortly also Iztok Vidmar joins them on a guitar, which he replaces for bass soon after. Quartet with unusual form – two bass guitars, drums and vocal - and short, striking songs becomes attraction of Ljubljana's alternative scene.
Songs are a minute or two long. The shortest lasts only nineteen seconds, the longest is not much longer than three minutes. In this way, their concerts are charged with energy and condensed. They finish their repertoire in scant fifteen minutes. Iztok Vidmar later recalls: »We told, what we had to say, and then it was the end of the song.«
Their concert chronology is similar to chronologies of »O!Kult« , »Via Ofenziva« and »Otroci Socializma« and is spaning from concert at the end of the season in »Disko FV«, on June, 29th, 1982 until autumn 1983. Among bigger manifestations  at which Čao Pičke appeared this year, October's solidarity concert for Palestinian people »Rock against Israel« in Kranj,  have to be mentioned. During the winter they perform in Šentvid's »Dom svobode« and »Disko FV«, which is also a permanent between Ljubljana's concert places at that time. In autumn 1983 they appear at »Novi rock« festival, which is then main goal of every active band.
Sever's lyrics of songs »Čao pičke«, »B« and »Si prepričan« are published in Punk Problemi. »I'm fucked up/ what are you doing I don't know/I like your smell/ I love your smile, you-me/ fuck it, you never know who,« sings Marsa. Live recordings from Disko Študent, recorded on chromdioxide tape, are published on b-side of the casette, which is split with »Via Ofenziva«(Galerija ŠKUC, February 1983). Kasette is accompanied by Publication »Galerija ŠKUC izdaja, number 15/a. For compilation record 84-48 (ZKP RTV Ljubljana 1984), they contribute songs »B« and »Kaj naj ti rečem«, which were recorded in Studio Metro.
After break up of Čao Pičke Marsa is active in first Slovenian female hardcore band »Tožibabe«, Iztok is settled after short time in »Lolita« and Jani sets sail to journalistic waters.

GHOUL "night out" (Ghoul Night Out) - 18€
Seminal 80's Japanese punk band, fronted by the one handed, raspy-voiced, fan-punching legend Masami, who passed on young (like many of his contemporaries) in the early 90's, apparently of liver failure brought on by excessive love of the drink. The original Ghoul broke up in '85, as there's the official VHS entitled "Last Gig" out on ACC video label. The band got back together as "Ghoul II" with a different line-up in the late '86 (or possibly in the early '87), changed the name to "Sqwad" (originally called Masami with Sqwad) sometime during the summer of '88, either right before or after they played the "Complete Death" show at the Toshima Public Hall in Tokyo on July 17th '88, then broke up and got back together again as "Ghoul III" in '89 with just a slightly different line-up than "Ghoul II" and pretty much remained active until Masami puked the blood on the stage and went into a coma afterwards in the early '90s. "Ghoul II" and "Ghoul III" - that's exactly how Masami called themselves when they got reformed twice and those names were often mentioned in the interviews, magazine articles and that's how they were usually listed in the gig flyers as well. As most of the serious fans probably noticed, they're credited as "Sqwad (ex-Ghoul)" on the "Complete Death Live" VHS tape (released on January 1st '89), however, in the flyers for this show they were still listed as "Ghoul II". So, probably they changed the name to "Sqwad" right before this show or after, but sometime before the VHS came out. Later, they played as "Sqwad" during the year of '89, released 7" flexi on Slice Records and broke up before the mid '89 and got back together again later the same year (before the summer). The Ghoul tracks you find on the "Game Of Death" compilation LP (which was released in July '89) are the only recorded material by "Ghoul III", although they're simply credited as "Ghoul" on this release.
Limited to 200 copies, fantastic top quality release, mastered for vinyl for best/huge sound. Includes a double sided insert and sticker! Import from Australia. 15 songs in total.

GLUE - s/t (La Vida En Us MUs) - 14€
Glue didn’t really have to get better, but they have. With barely 25 minutes of recorded music to their name—spread across a demo, an EP and a tour tape—our appetite for the band’s distinctive take on hardcore had hardly been sated. However, their latest foray ups the ante in all respects, not only pushing against the edges of their sound in the ways you might expect when a band releases its first 12” record, but also by taking the things they already did well even further. Listening to Glue has always felt like you’re standing next to a ticking time bomb, but something about this latest recording with its noisy, everything-in-the-red mix makes the band sound even more explosive, and I pity the soul who tries to sit still while this thing is on the turntable. However, once you get past the immediate, visceral thrill that this record inspires, you’ll be able to appreciate how Glue are expanding upon the primal beats and weirdly circular, almost psychedelic take on hardcore riffing that has made them stick out from the pack since the beginning. “Flowers of Friendship,” with its bright, major key main riff, smashes together Glue’s savage hardcore with a traditional oi! vibe to interesting results, and the closing track is built around a hard-driving rock riff that sounds like it was lifted straight off of an old Judas Priest record. Glue don’t leave hardcore behind with this record, but they don’t let it limit them either, proving that this 35-year-old framework still has the capacity to inspire music as relevant and as exciting as anything the genre has produced so far.
The record comes housed in a 350 gsm sleeve using artwork by Kelsey Henderson as front cover and includes a double sided lyric insert. Released simultaneously in USA by Glue Records and Europe by La Vida Es Un Mus in time for Glue’s June 2017 tour.

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

THE COVENTRY AUTOMATICS AKA THE SPECIALS "dawning of a new era" (Boss Tunage) - 17

“DAWNING OF A NEW ERA” is a fascinating collection of demos, now officially re-released for the 40th anniversary of the recordings, and making the tracks officially available on vinyl for the first time in over 2 decades! Of the 13 songs which appear on the release only Wake Up, Look But Don't Touch and Jay Walker failed to make it on to any official release and were dropped from the bands live set early in their career. The remainder of the tracks offer embryonic versions of tracks which make up the bulk of the bands first album. Rock and Roll Nightmare would later appear on the bands More Specials under the name Pearls Cafe abet with slightly different lyrics. The track Raquel appeared on the b-side of the Dutch Concrete Jungle single and later was released in session version as part of the BBC Radio Sessions album.
These recordings are must owns for any SPECIALS fan or indeed anyone with a love of the 2Tone/Ska scene.

CIVILISED SOCIETY "scrap metal" (Self Released) - 5€
Scrapmetal' was Civilised Society's debut album and way ahead of its time. Featuring ex-Instigators drummer and Peaceville, Hammy, the band had some good coverage for this album from the metal press. 'Scrapmetal' was early type of hardcore/punk/metal crossover album which could have gained more attention then it actually did. However, John Peel opened hiss radio show with 'The Fairer Sex' on several occaisions and even Tommy Vance played the aalbum on his show although he the band was Scrapmetal and the song Civilised Society?!! Civilised Society worked really hard in those days and gigged a lot eveen supporting MDC at Hammersmith at last minutes notice! 'Scrapmetal' contained 14 songs altogether which varied from a wide range of topics. They were very politically orientated with attitude which made a refreshing from the norm of metal bands. As said before, the album was ahead of its time and although it recieved some good airplay and reviiews in Kerrang! and Metal Forces magazines, the band found it increasingly difficult to strike out to the metal audience in general. The hardcore crowd was always in strong attendence but Civilised Society? wanted and needed to branch out and encompass different audiences. This they tried to do in many ways.

Decades before the current wave of kids cranking out meticulously distorted and deliberately fukkd sounds there were waves of kids bashing out their own brand of desperate sounds. These blown out aural explosions laid the foundation for years of careful imitators, many of whom would make sounds far more memorable than the accidental originators. There are exceptions of course...enter AD NAUSEAM. Plodding and painful UK anarcho punk from 1982 delivered amidst complete chaos and a whir of analog distortion. The guitar alone could be a blueprint for countless hangers on, but these songs have so much more to offer than unintentional mastery of an EQ knob. Songs like "What A State" are worthy of DISORDER level accolades, and "Daddy Daddy" is a legit UK82 burner, but it's all hiding under a wall of fuzz (this is either a deal breaker or deal maker depending on how noisy you like your noise punk). The political punk construct blown to oblivion, think THE DECAY and CHROME trying to bash their way through a set of primitive first wave hardcore...this shit is raw.
28 tracks in total, the Mass Murder tape and the 2nd demo from 1982, and the 1984 demo as well. Only 300 copies. 200 black & 100 blue.

AGRIMONIA "awaken" (Southern Lord) DOUBLE LP - 21€
AGRIMONIA returns with their fourth album release, and second for Southern Lord, Awaken, now set for release through Southern Lord on January 26th. The label has issued the artwork, track listing, and a trailer for the record.
Awaken arrives ten years since the release of their first album, and AGRIMONIA has evolved notably over that period. Their sound has always been dense, immersive, ambitious even, and on Awaken, the band has evolved their prog-infused form of expansive metal into something energetic, dynamic, and powerful. On Awaken, the band digs deep into their subconscious, trying to get an elevated state of mind, to connect the mind with sound and to find the combination of notes and melodies that evolves into a feeling or mood. AGRIMONIA channels the bittersweet aspects of life, and breathe air into thoughts that cannot easily be put into words.
About Awaken the band comments, "We are thrilled to see the release of our fourth album Awaken. We are very proud of the outcome and feel that the album is our most dynamic and vital yet, and contains more of everything that is AGRIMONIA. Awaken is the soundtrack to our existence, and I hope other people can feel that way too."
Awaken was produced by AGRIMONIA, and mixed and mastered by Henrik Udd who also worked on the previous recording Rites of Separation, then under the Studio Fredman banner but now under his own name, Henrik Udd Recording Studios.

AHEADS - st LP with Poster and DVD (Mad Butcher) - 14€
Excellent record now: short crunchy crackers and another one of my favorites. The Aheads from Herford were one of the first punk bands in the region of East Westphalia. 1975 they were founded as "Ron Age Band" and their first appearance was in 1977 at Hellepark under the name "Those Fuckin' Aheads" named after rockers from the Crumb Comix. After the first punk songs from England could be heard through the radio broadcast by John Peel in Germany and by attending a concert by Wire, the band began writing their own songs. With their unconventional sound for its time the band led by former British soldier Andy Stillon known punk bands like the Dead Kennedys has enthusiastically. The Aheads debut was the 'Freedom Of Speech EP' and one year later two songs on the great Soundtracks Zum Untergang compilation. Then toured with Slime, Betoncombo and Middle Class Fantasies. After the tour the band recorded their only album in Berlin which was released by AGR. Their last gig was in 1982 at the Audimax in Bielefeld. After the dissolution of the band guitarist Bernd and drummer Werner played in the 80s in a number of not very long-lived bands. Under the name Roll On Roll Off they released the single "Fig. 320" and the self-produced mini album "Pussy Push" in 1988. Andy Stillion, the singer of the band died on 11. July 2010 in the morning. With his girlfriend on a boat trip to the Farne Islands, he collapsed on the boat. In 2011 the remaining band members published a showcase with all produced songs including a DVD supplement with photos of their active career.  LP comes with posters, bonus DVD and band history. Beautiful thing.


AUTISTIC YOUTH "nonage" (Sabotage / Taken By Surprise) - 12€
Formed in the burbs of Portland in 2003, AUTISTIC YOUTH has spent the past 10 years touring and releasing records in North America and Europe. After almost 3 years since their last full-length record, AUTISTIC YOUTH is releasing their junior album. Comparable to other Portland bands like THE WIPERS, OBSERVERS, and RED DONS, "nonage" is more refined yet remains true to the sound they've had for so many years. Vinyl comes with a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.


CENTURIES "the lights of this earth are blinding" (Southern Lord) - 15
Centuries' second LP, The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding,is due for release in January via Southern Lord Recordings. The band today announces their return to Europe for the fourth time in April and May, alongside Portrayal Of Guilt.
About the new album the band remarks, "The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding is a dark album that carries a theme of constant self-doubt.  It follows how we choose to accept our loses and the reaction to life, as well as the journey we take to make peace with the demons we've made."
Southern Lord will release CENTURIES' The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding on LP and digital formats on January 26th, 2018. Stand by for additional audio/video samples from the album, preorder links, and more over the weeks ahead.

INVASION - st (La Vida En Us Mus) - 12€
INVASIÓN from Barcelona bring us 10 tracks of claustrophobic, intense, noisy and chaotic hardcore. Influenced equally by DISCHARGE and old Italian and Japanese bands their debut LP is a mix of pure anguish and anger. Their sound is dirty and direct and the vocal delivery is extremely crazy, using delay and echo effects that together with a primal recording and production create an atmosphere of pure desperation.

PEGGIO PUNX "ci stanno uccidendo..." (Vomitopunkrock) - LP + 7" – 16€
Peggio Punx, also known as Peggio, were a group of music punk / hardcore active between 1981/1989 Alexandria. The group was characterized by often experimental music and lyrics leftist sympathizers. Along with other groups such as Nerorgasmo, Negazione, Decline, indigesti and others, formed the basis of the hardcore punk scene of Piedmont. In the early eighties were very active in the Italian scene and participated in numerous concerts with bands like Wretched, CCM, Raw power. Many of his albums are self-produced, full of the spirit of DIY. The LP contains his EP "Ci stanno uccidendo al suono nostra musica" 1985 also includes within its first 7 " Disastro sonoro 1982, and a fanzine 4 p. With an interview with guitarist Marco and founder of the band.


SECT "no cure for death" (Southern Lord) - 17€ (Black Vinyl)
Following the signing of North American hardcore group SECT to Southern Lord earlier this year, the band has since completed recording their second full-length, and label debut, No Cure For Death, and with plans to release the album on November 24th. No Cure For Death was recorded with Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
Comprised of an international cast of scene veterans, who cut their teeth in that formative moment of political, cynical, antagonistic extremes, SECT unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, Fall Out Boy, The Damned Things). The result of these musicians’ alignment is a caustic, riotous, belligerent style of vile hardcore fed by a boundless well of socio-political vitriol.
SECT gets right down to the blast beats and breakdowns that fight it out in their chaotic jams. They cut the shit and go for the throat with no time to waste, “because the Orwellian police states and irreparable social and ecological disasters we once saw off on the horizon are now on our front doorsteps, in full swing. And in just such a volatile, precarious moment as this for civilization, there is more reason than ever to keep lashing out at a world more suicidally-bent on its own destruction and the exploitation of people, species and the ecosystem itself, than perhaps ever before in history.”
For SECT, this is the purpose of hardcore as they know it, conveying an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action.
Southern Lord will release No Cure For Death on November 24th; stand by for audio samples, videos, preorder links, and more in the days ahead.

LUMPY AND THE DUMPERS "those pickled fuckers" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Since emerging five years ago Lumpy and the Dumpers have gone from being aberrant oddballs to key figures in a whole scene of weirdo punk. Through Lumpy Records and its influence a grubby morrass of freak punk has bubbled to the surface in their slimy wake. Those Pickled Fuckers is the sound of a band distinguishing themselves from a sound they inspired, not falling into the easiness of a sound, finding new ways to express their grubby vision while retaining the essential muck that made people take notice in the first place.
Over seven tracks of gritty discomfort punk, bulging with bodyhorror blues and puerile manic imprecations, Lumpy and the Dumpers revel and writhe in the effluvia of life and the rude pangs and oozings of flesh.
Revivifying the dead metaphor of the earworm, these songs burrow snugly into your brain, distorted sing-song playground melodies, like hell dimension children's show theme songs, exploding with weird turns and twists, from the blaring horns of Someone's In The House's paranoiac stomp, to the wild malfunctioning chiptune screams cutting through Attention and the...  more.

ATOXXXICO "demos, rarities and 1st EP" LP + 7" (FOAD) - 20€
Formed in Mexico D.F. in 1987 from the same background that gave birth to noisy HC terrorists such as M.E.L.I., Massacre 68, Xenofobia, Sedicion, GPK..... Atoxxxico probably stands as the most recognized outfit from that deranged scene. This special release to celebrate their 30th year anniversary includes the complete early "TV Demo 1988", the Demo 1993 recorded in LA, 6 songs recorded live in D.F. in 1989 and a perfect reproduction of their rare "Punks de mierda" 7" (1987) a classic of raw aggressive Mexican HC very sought after by collectors.

Specially mastered for vinyl from the best sounding sources provided by the band, housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with 12 page booklet including tons of photos, flyers and original artworks, plus the "Punks de mierda" EP made exactly as the original, with A4 lyrics insert.


BL'AST! "blood!" (Southern Lord) - 16
Having formed in 1982, the highly influential Santa Cruz hardcore legend: BL’AST! released their first album, The Power of Expression in 1985. This debut album completely blew everyone away and went on to become one of the highly sought after,  “must- have” hardcore albums from the 80s’.
BL’AST! were beyond intense, continually pushing the boundaries of hardcore with their advanced musicianship, unstoppable energic delivery and explosive live performances. This overwhelming power caught the attention of SST records, who released the band’s second album, It’s In My Blood in 1987. Their third album Take The Manic Ride, was then released in 1989.
BL’AST!‘s wide-eyed, ambitious approach and intense perserverance became an influence for many bands to come. Shortly after the release of Take The Manic Ride the band broke up and their story was buried by time and dust….UNTIL NOW!
Earlier this year BL’AST! guitarist, Mike Neider contacted Southern Lord with news that he had found some mysterious old BL’AST! master tapes in a abandoned storage locker. Greg Anderson, fanatical about BL’AST!, wasted no time in sending the tapes to a studio to be baked. Needless to say, after 25 years gathering dust, the quality had deteriorated. Even when the tapes had been baked, nobody could have anticipated what would follow. With the tapes baked and audio digitised, Southern Lord contacted long time BL’AST! fiend, Dave Grohl about mixing this recording, his response was an enthusiastic “FUCK YEAH!, LETS DO THIS”!
Whilst inside Grohl’s famous 606 Studios (and with the Neve console as featured in the recent Grohl produced documentary ‘Sound City’) a remarkable discovery was made – a completely unheard, unreleased BL’AST! recording session from the mid-80s.
There is no doubt in our minds that Blood will be a crucial purchase for any current Hardcore fiend as well as punk/hardcore fans who loved the band back in the day.

BRAINSTORM / BATTLE OF DISARM split (Rest In Punk) - 14€
This split Lp was originally released in 1993 on No Time To Be Wasted Records, a Belgrade-based label run by the singer of Brainstorm.
BoD's side is entitled "反戦-反動物実験" (meaning "Anti-War Anti-Animal Experimentation", clearly the two main themes in the band's lyrics) and was recorded in February, 1993. This Lp was actually the first vinyl output of BoD, as the band had only recorded a demo tape before, "Not Lie", in 1992.  The eight songs of "反戦-反動物実験" are perfectly recorded, I don't think songs like "Battle of disarm" or "Anti vivisection" ever sounded better than on this Lp. The guitar riffs are thick and thrashy, even slightly convoluted at times, and bring to mind Crude SS or Lobotomia more than Doom.
On the other side of the Lp, entitled "Join no Army, Police and Politician", is Brainstorm. Their 1989 demo and the 1990 Ep are clearly early crust classics. The nine Brainstorm songs from that split were recorded in May, 1993, at a time when the war was certainly not over in Yugoslavia. Lyrical content, which, despite unfortunate losses in translation, still reflected the anger, the outrage and the urgency of that time and place. Written from an anti-state perspective, the songs read like cries against patriotism, conformity, blind faith, media and political manipulation, the brutality of war... No longer a mere punk trope used to denounce an imaginary endless war, calls for peace and disgust at the sheep mentality designated a very real situation.
Brainstorm
Battle Of Disarm

BROTHERHOOD "till death..." (Southern Lord) - 17€
The definitive album of pissed, cathartic, raging HARDCORE from Seattles’ own: Brotherhood. The members of Brotherhood have gone onto to be involved in some of the most important bands of the last 20 years (Sunn 0))) & Foo Fighters to name just a few). These raw recordings from 1988 are the catalyst and undeniable roots that started it all! Includes a 32 page 7”x7” booklet with liner notes & tons of photos from the era. Packaged in a thick Stoughton tip-on single pocket jacket. Faithfully remastered by Brad Boatright.

THE CURE "rare 70's recordings" (Unknown Label) - 14
Rare tracks from various sessions in the bands early years. A very interesting record, which includes, for example, the whole early recordings, which were still under the name THE EASY CURE. This is still flawless 77er punkrock. In addition, the early version of "boys don't cry" is just as exciting as the original version of "a forest".

Track 6: Chestnut Studios, Sussex 27.05.1978

DEAD HERO "la vida continua" (Sabotage) - 13€
Dead Hero are a punk band from Bogota, Colombia who sing in Spanish but who are specifically inspired by the British oi! and street-punk of the early-’80s. They’ve got all the scrappy immediacy of today’s DIY punk and hardcore, but they’ve got big, confident riffs and shout-along choruses and a sort of meaty, zero-pretension swagger that makes them anomalies in today’s DIY-punk universe. And thanks to singer Paula Suarez, they also offer a way-too-rare opportunity to hear a woman singing oi!(Stereogum).

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!


DS-13 "umea hardcore forever, forever umea hardcore" (Spela Snabbare) DOUBLE LP - 22€
Euro Press. This release compiles all of DS 13’s 7”, split and comp tracks. Total of 67 tracks remastered for this release. DS 13 formed in 1997 with the goal of shaking up the hardcore scene in their part of Sweden by playing fast and aggressive hardcore. In an era dominated by emo, pop punk and mosh metal they found many people were hungry for a return to basic hardcore sounds of the 80’s and their 7”s attracted a lot of attention around the world. What followed was a rapid string of releases spread over several labels, followed by two LPs. This record gathers all those recordings into one deluxe double LP package. Features Color vinyl, color gatefold, color inner sleeve with liner notes and lyrics. DS 13 helped kick off the “Y2K Thrash” movement, a time that many remember as an age of high energy,  fast hardcore, unity and good times. Thrash lifestyle may be out of style today, but the music and energy can’t be held back.

EXTREME NOISE TERROR "holocaust in my head" (Let Them Eat Vinyl) - 18€ (Transparent Red Vinyl)
A reissue of the debut-album by British crust punk/grindcore legends EXTREME NOISE TERROR, originally released in 1989. This rag-tag group of hc misfits turned metallic innovators is largely seen as being at the forefront of the development of grindcore.

HARAM "when you have won, you have lost" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 13
After one Demo and one 7" on Toxic State, Haram from Nuke York release their debut album on La Vida es un Mus (in Europe) and Toxic State (USA). Taking their name from the Arabic word for ‘forbidden’, Haram play simple hardcore with lyrics sung entirely in Arabic. The sound is agitated and slightly deranged which hints at both Japanese hardcore and classic 80's European hardcore. The songs are driven by a primitive drum sound, melodic guitar work and intense voacls by Lebanese frontman Nader. Haram stands out as one of the most culturally relevant, challenging and important bands in America.
The LP comes in a 350 gsm reverse board jacket and includes poster and lyric booklet.

HELLKRUSHER "human misery" (Ruin Nation) - 13€
The fourth studio album of Newcastle upon Tyne's crust punk institution by the name HELLKRUSHER. The band formed in 1989 by members of "Hellbastard" and "Energetic Krusher" and soon became an institution within the Crustpunk genre. They released several albums and Eps along their way as well as extensive tours with FINAL WARNING and DIRT in the nineties.
Now, apart from a couple of split 7"s between 1997 and 2017, this forth studio album is the first full length in 21 years. Fourteen raging and pumping songs about the horrors of modern society in everyday way. Musically linked somewhere between VARUKERS and "Hear Nothing, Say Nothing" DISCHARGE, all twisted up with a massive doses of thrash and crust core. Well done Hellkrusher!
Recorded by Rich Doney at Landscape Studios Stanghow 2015/2016. Artwork by Andy Lefton and Steve Descamps.

KERETIK "terra mater" (Fight) - 13
Keretik is a new Helsinki-based group, which was born from the ashes of Viimeinen Kolonna (2000-2016). Compared to their former band Keretik counts on a slower tempo and a darker sound. They play gloomy metal influenced punk in vein of Amebix, Killing Joke, Axegrinder, Bolt Thrower and Mana Mana. The album contains seven strong and atmospheric songs excluding all irrelevant aspects.
Recorded by Waldemar Blommendah at Tsunami Studio 01/21-22/2017. Mixed and mastered by Matti Reinola at Blue Room.

PERMISSION "contagious life" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 13
Storming debut by London's Permission. An LP full of cut corners, but not the kind that diminish impact or relinquish effort to what could of been, bur more the kind of oblique angles and low sharp ceilings that cause the head that does not bang to bang, lesion, swell, and never clot. Forged in the tattered die-cut of the contemporary edges of hardcore but thoroughly punched clear out of the factory, thanks to the now legendary edge of guitar player Ralph Simmond’s stereo detuning, alongside tight turns and sharp time changes. Big moves pin this LP far beyond expectation and straight onto a great punk hit. Move or be shoved. Absorb or be locked out. Somewhere between a hi-fi Rudimentary Peni and if Saccharine Trust was a rugby team.
Contagious Life comes housed in a heavy weight reverse board sleeve designed by Ralph Simmonds and has a lyric insert and download code.

PRESSING ON "no defeat no capitulation" (Even Worse) - 11€
Portland's based Pressing on put out a small amount of tapes earlier this year,which was more of a rough version of the totally remastered and mixed now known as the "No defeat, no capitulation" record, and boy did it turn out louder and clearer then i would've imagined. Pressing On consists of members of the late and great Talk Is poison, as well as from Ashes Rise, and the still going Raw Nerves. Expect nothing less than total anthemic and defiant hardcore with all around great musicianship, and strong sense of melody in that great Talk Is poison style, yet holding their own. A clenched fist pumper for sure.

TORTÜR "demo" (Farewell) - 13€
Black vinyl! - Tortür hail from Los Angeles, CA play typical noisy D-beat crasher crust. Expect nothing less than hellish rawpunk and a raw D-beat attack. Heavily influenced by Disclose, Discharge, Impalers, Warvictims...
The record contains both their 2 demos from 2016 and 2017 as well as their Flexi EP. 17 sonx in total!
The Cover art was done by Robin Wiberg! You may know Robin Wiberg as the drummer for DISFEAR, or from his Instagram account where he regularly posts his punk art. His drawings are stylistically very raw, which is fitting as he hails from Scandinavia, which is the birth place of “raw punk".
DIS nightmare continues! Noise, not music!

TOUMITTUJEN JUHLA "1983/84" (Fight) - 15€
Autumn 1983, Tampere SS and Marionetti split. Some members of both bands met and formed a new band which became Tuomittujen Juhla. They had an aim to create something special and new, which was not supposed to be hardcore punk. The band released two demo tapes during 1983 and 1984. The Last demo was supposed to be released as self-financed EP via band’s Rapagonda label, but was eventually shelved. Tuomittujen Juhla run out of steam soon after and some of the members joined to Kuolleet Kukat. The A-side of this album contains demo from 1983 and B-side demo from 1984. Some of these tracks were released as part of compilation tapes at the time . Now for the first time on vinyl.


V/A "BEACH BOULEVARD" (Radiation) - 14€
This album has so much early punk rock history it's SICK! RIK L RIK, The Crowd, the Simpletones. Rik L Rik is the hardest band on this record. The crowd and simpletones are poppy early punk rock, but totally classic. If you love old punk rock, like from the late 70's, then you'll love this album. Reissue of classic punk compilation from 1979.

ΟΔΟΣ 55 “οδός 55” (Ειρκτή) - 15€
Τώρα... εκ των μαύρων στοών σε έπαλξη και εν εξάρσει... (Αν)Ενεργοί συνδεσμώτες της (αν)οικείας ατμόσφαιράς μας, στο εδωνά και εκτιθέμενοι στο παρόν του 2012. Λίγα χρόνια πλέον μετά τη λάμψη κρότου... Ελάχιστα χρόνια πλέον μετά τις λάμψεις κρότου... ευρέσεις και συναντήσεις σε αλλόχρωμο περιθώριο πρωϊνών ερημικών πλεύσεων καθώς η πρώτη ακτή ξεβράζει σε τρικυμία... Οι Οδός 55, γέννημα σε σταυροδρόμι μεστωμένων ήχων και στάσης υφαίνουν τα προσχέδια της έμπνευσής τους (2010). Σήμερα, η εἰρκτή παρουσιάζει τις στολισμένες με ανάλογη στιχουργία μουσικές περιπλανήσεις των Οδός 55. Ζωσμένες με ορμητικούς ηλεκτρισμένους ήχους σε ελαχιστοποιημένα συνάμα έντεχνα αποδιδόμενα θορυβιστικά μοτίβα, οι συνθέσεις του σχήματος αναδύονται δυναμικά,η μία μετά της άλλης, παρακινώντας συνοδεία φωνής, συνοδεία αφυπνιστικής στιχουργηματικής απεικόνισης τον ακροατή σε άμεση ανταπόκριση. Από το μινιμαλιστικό συνθετικό πανκ και τις γλαφυρές ρεαλιστικές σκηνές του Αττική Βικτώρια, στις θορυβοποιές με λέξεις και ήχους σκέψεις του Άδειοι δρόμοι. Από τις γεμάτες με φρενήρεις ηλεκτρικούς χτύπους διαδρομές του Άσπρη Γη στη νευρώδη μουσική εκδήλωση του Αεικίνητοι. Από τις στιγμές δημιουργικής (επανα)συγκρότησης του Αταλάνδη στις στρωτές, φιλο-λογικά και ηχητικά άμεσες καταδηλώσεις κομματιών όπως το Ο Κόσμος Τους και το Για Πάντα. Επτά εν συνόλω δυναμιτιστικές συλλήψεις ενός σύγχρονου μουσικού μανιφέστου που αναμένει την έκθεσή του, που αναμένει την ακροαματική κατάθεσή του.

DISFEAR "live the storm" (La Familia) - 14€
Official re-release! Comes in 350 gram inside/out sleeve with 400 gram lyric sheet! Adding Entombed guitarist Uffe Cederlund to a group that already features At the Gates singer Tomas Lindberg has created a death'n'roll supergroup - and one of the best heavy records of 2008. Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou produces. "Live The Storm" is a 35 minute assault of heavy power chords, pounding drums and bass, layered with southern sounding leads and throat wrenching yells ...


MYTERI "ruiner" (Alerta Antifascista) - 14€
Myteri from Gothenburg, Sweden are back with their second full length with epic, soaring and heavy as fuck crust punk that will make you wanna raise your fist to the sky, get into your riot gear and start a full blown fucking riot. Myteri’s music evokes apocalyptic landscapes... -Comes in a heavy gatefold cover, download code, A2 poster, 180gram vinyl, artwork by "Written In Black Design".

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

RIXE "collection" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Collection neatly compiles RIXE's first 3 Eps on one album. All 12 cuts have been remastered for maximum volume. Rixe appeared from nowhere and went from strength to strength over the two years since the Debut EP Coup Et Blessures was released in February 2015. The EP was their calling card and harked back to the glory years of Bologna's finest Nabat mixed with the classic 80's French Oi! sound. It was instant and loved by all and went on to have six pressings. A year later came Les Nerf A Vif - another four tracker with extra bite and bile. Every track was perfectly recorded and produced. Lean with snarl and each track a nugget of anthemic Oi!. On third EP Bapteme Du Feu there was no let up in quality...  more.

TRAGEDY s/t (Skuld) – 13€
Official Repress of the first TRAGEDY Album on Skuld Releases, this time in the original package of the US Pressing (Tragedy Records) - From the opening acoustic intro to the last dark, thrashed out note this is one seriously intense album. The obvious comparisons His Hero Is Gone and From Ashes Rise are there for sure but to me this has a bit more of a straight up hardcore feel to it. That said though, this has some excellent heavy pounding drum beats happening and some changes in pace, pitch and mood that are so tight and sudden they scream for your attention. The harsh throaty vocals belt out lyrics that are written as single block paragraphs dealing with overtly sociopolitical issues all looked at from a less than positive point of view. This record is very heavy, very angry and although you will probably like it, it will not make you happy!


WARWOUND "burning the blindfolds of bigots" (Unrest) - 15
Unrest Records is proud to announce the new album by Warwound entitled "Burning The Blindfolds Of Bigots". Boasting Damian Thompson (Sacrilege), Rat (Varukers), Ian Glasper (Stampin Ground), and Stevie James (Hellkrusher), what do you seriously expect?! A bass and drum driven beast layered with acute riff laden rhythm and leads, while Rat's vocals are as visceral as ever!! This powerhouse Warwound line-up does not rest on the sounds of their past demos and have strengthened their delivery creating a surgically tight heavyweight metallic punk crossover fiend!! Artwork sickly rendered by none other than Andy Lefton and lyric video for "Let The Truth Speak" courtesy of Andy Pilkington at Very Metal Art.

EBOLA "imprecation" (Flat Earth) - 5€
Released in 1997 by legendary labels Flat Earth, Enslaved & Refusenik Records, this is Ebola's masterpiece. The one record where everything came together. It's seven-inches of angry pissed off political sincere hardcore punk brilliance. The kind you can't fake or recreate.  A total classic which, due to not being 'hip' and being pressed in the thousands, can be picked up easily and cheaply still the way it should be.

GLORIOUS? "who are they to impose restrictions?" (Adult Crash) - 13€
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!

KARPATOS "dead punk niebla densa" (Discos Enfermos, Discos MeCagoEnDios, No Thanks!, Mayo Records, Discos Bomba) - 8€
Raw, scrabbly hardcore from Bilbao that howls and hollers like its life depends on it. Everything here is blunt and simple but so insistent that you can't ignore it, comprising big stomping beats and ugly, brash riffing that gets so close you get the sense it wants to taste your breath. Comparisons include S.H.I.T., labelmates Hez and the Toxic State slate, but perhaps more than anything Karpatos fit in perfectly with the current wave of wild, grating, raggedly experimental hardcore that Spain seems hell bent on producing these days.

OI POLLOI "saorsa" (Ruined Families) - 13€
This is the sixth studio album of the long going scottish anarchist punk band "OI POLLOI" (Slang for "The Common People") 15 new songs recorded in 2014 with an retrospective of the many musically influences of previous OI POLLOI records. Here you find the anarcho charged sing-a-long Oi!Punk in exchange with D-Beat-Crust and of course classic UK Anarcho Punk.
"Saorsa" means "Freedom" in scottish gaelic and "Freedom" or "Liberty" is the lyrical main subject of this album. Lyrics are mostly sung in English with little excursions into Gaelic, Spanish as well as Yiddish. With all the heavy political content, OI POLLOI never excluded humor in what they do and this is what makes them so sympathic in my eyes.
Responsible for the beautiful artwork was Sonia L. who already contributed to previous OI POLLOI records such as "Fuaim Catha".

R.I.P.‎ "no te muevas!" (Guns of Brixton) - 15€
Reissue of the only studio album from this Basque band, originally released in 1987. After including four tracks on the 1984 split mini-album Zona Especial Norte, (trans. "North Special Zone"), finally, three years later, RIP walked into the studio. Kaki Azkarazo was at the controls with the collaboration of Pepin Fernandez, a valued engineer from Madrid that decided to work on it just because he liked the band. Three days were enough to capture all 14 tracks. The result is a key album in understanding the later development of rock music in the Basque Country and beyond. This reissue features the original artwork with the addition of a poster and a 24-page fanzine narrating the career path of RIP from birth to break-up; anecdotes, gigs, projects, photographs, and more. This is a great opportunity to once again enjoy this quartet's music that branded a generation.

SAD BOYS "demo" (Discos Enfermos) - 8€
Sad Boys is a band from New York with a brutal sound that mixes English punk sound with Japanese pogo-punk and giving all an incredible personality; strongly marked bass-lines under a distorted and screeching guitar , relentless drums on 1-2-1-2-1-2 makes can't stay quite listening to this shit ... and acute and squeaky voice of Emma is fucking punk.
THE INJECTIONS and TOM & BOOT BOYS influences are indisputable and even something of THE WANKYS can be appreciated, but giving it a personal touch with the characteristic voice. 12 tracks that for me are the best of the band and almost impossible to find in the original format of cassette released by the band itself. Very special release with the demo on A side and etched B side with work of Emma B, screenprinted covers in 3 different colors and insert with lyrics and band photo. For me, as simply essential punk.

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

THE BLITZZ "go now" (Sing Sing) - 7€
All members of THE BLITZZ could frequently be seen playing at jam sessions in the ‘70s Amstedam rock-scene before they decided to join forces. When Mick Ronson (David Bowie's Spiders from Mars) heard them play at a venue in the Amsterdam Red Light District he immediately fell for the compact sound of the band. This memorable evening led to the recording of 'So Free' in a London recording studio soon afterwards. The first single from The Blitzz was released by EMI in the UK and on the Continent in September 1978. 'So Free' went up the charts in several European countries in the months to follow. In December of the same year their second single 'Go Now' was recorded at the renowned Pebble Beach Studio in Brighton and released in the beginning of 1979. After three years of successful touring the band decided to split up to pursue personal goals.

P.I.G.Z. "bloody belgium" (Ugly Pop) - 8€
One of the crown jewels of worldwide first-wave punk, this Belgian band's sole release really is as good as it gets. All three songs here are excellent but 'Bloody Belgium' and 'Stooges' are stone classics. Unavailable since it was released in 1978, with original copies fetching up to four figures, and finally back in print through cooperation with the band. Includes booklet with interview, clippings and unseen photos!

S.H.I.T. "i" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
S.H.I.T. have been one of the best bands doing it live and on record for a few years now and here on their fourth 7" (and first since 2014) they reassert their place as mainstays of Toronto's killer scene by serving up four more tracks of total hardcore moving forward through chaos. Insidiation blowing a wild storm hung around an unstoppable chugging riff, panic and terror building as the song pounds onwards. Incorporation shifting from warped siren blare to terrible tear. Barks of frustration, howls of anger, emerging from the bruising punk squall, anguished and disgusted. A record that careers with breakneck verve from sinister pulse to blazing hardcore bombardment.
S.H.I.T.S’s new EP artwork was designed by the greatest Teodoro Hernández and comes with a download code.

CROWD "a world apart" (Radiation) - 16€
Radiation Deluxe Series present a reissue of The Crowd's A World Apart, originally released in 1981. "It is impossible to overstate the significance of The Crowd to the nascent L.A. hardcore scene. Whilst bands like early Agent Orange and Social Distortion were playing to handfuls of fans in northern Orange County, in 1979 The Crowd were already filling backyards on their home turf in Huntington Beach, California. Ironically, it was further afield in the San Gabriel Valley that I first saw them perform, opening for the still punk Go-Go's in a small club. Without the continuing success of The Crowd in 1979 and throughout the summer of 1980, I would have packed my bags for London. Instead, the L.A. hardcore scene lifted off!" --Robbie Fields, Poshboy Records. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.

EVEN WORSE "lost album" (Radiation) - 16€
Radiation Deluxe Series present We Suck!, the lost album by Even Worse from 1982, never before on vinyl. One of the best kept secrets of the early pre-New York Hardcore scene, along with Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Heart Attack, Undead, Kraut, etc. We Suck! features Big Takeover magazine editor Jack Rabid, Eric Keil, Bobby Weeks, and R.B. Korbet, the classic New York Thrash (1982) compilation lineup. Recorded at the famous 171A studio, co-produced by Bad Brains, with additional live tracks from New York's legendary Max's Kansas City club in 1981. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.

EXPLOITED "punk's not dead" (Radiation) - 14€
Born from working class roots in Edinburgh, Scotland, The Exploited emerged from the punk underground in 1981 with the debut-LP 'Punk's Not Dead', a direct response to the Crass-song 'Punk Is Dead'. The Exploited brought to the early '80s all the fire, speed and attitude of 1977's first wave, but with a street punk/Oi! swagger that was fresh and exciting. Peaking at #20 on the UK charts, 'Punk's Not Dead' was the best selling independent record of 1981. Essential punk history!

JUDGE "revelation can suck it" (Fan Club) - 15€
Judge had gone into Chung King with only one three-day weekend of studio time block-booked in order to record their first album, since band members John Porcelly and Sammy Siegler were set to tour with their main band Youth Of Today in Europe later that month. The studio was home to many of the popular (and now legendary) rap acts of the day, including the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC and LL Cool J; Youth Of Today had recorded their second album We're Not In This Alone at the same studio earlier in the year, so Porcelly and Siegler were already familiar with the place. According to a 2005 interview with Judge guitarist Porcell in AMP Magazine, all three of those acts had already been using three of the four separate facilities in the studio complex, leaving Judge with what was at the time the least technologically advanced of the four rooms. To complicate matters, the recording engineer the band had been assigned by the studio was a full-blown cocaine addict - an irony given Judge's militant anti-drug lyrics and moral code. During the second day of the sessions, the engineer on duty failed to show up for work, forcing the band to work with another studio staff engineer totally unaccustomed to recording punk rock music.
After the sessions were completed, Porcell and Siegler listened to the finished mixes while on the Youth of Today European tour and came to the conclusion that while the performances were good, the recordings were not up to the standards of what they had done in the past with Youth of Today. The drum tracks in particular do not have the punch typical of other Revelation releases at the time, and the overall mix is considered to be thin. A phone call to lead singer Mike "Judge" Ferarro confirmed that he too was unhappy with the finished album, and the group chose to shelve the session and start over in a different studio. Unfortunately for Revelation, label owner Jordan Cooper had already paid for the mastering of the record and the plating of the vinyl stampers - a point in the manufacture of record too late to fully prevent the release of an album, especially for Revelation Records, which was then still a small independent label that Cooper was running out of his home.
With advance orders already coming in for the as-yet unreleased album, Revelation decided to press a limited run of 100 white-vinyl copies of the album, assigning it catalog number REV:-1 (negative one), and sending these copies to tide over fans who had advance ordered Bringin' It Down. As is customary the record pressing plant produced a 10% overrun of the album and as a result 110 copies were delivered. Each copy has its number stamped on the bottom corner of the back of the sleeve however the printing on the jacket notes a pressing run of 100 so with the additional 10, those extra sleeves had the "100" altered to say "110". This record has been much sought after by collectors ever since.
Judge then scheduled time at Normandy Studios in Rhode Island - the same studio where The Cro-Mags recorded their second album Best Wishes in 1988 - to record a proper version of their first album, Bringin' It Down. The two albums are similar in track listing for the first eight songs; Chung King... features two songs, "Holding On" and "No Apologies", that were not rerecorded for Bringin' It Down; "Where It Went", written after the Chung King... sessions, takes their place.
The Chung King Can Suck It album remained a rarity (in spite of two different bootleg editions of the album), and was sought after both for its collectibility and the two rare Judge songs it contained, until 2005, when Revelation compiled all of Judge's recorded output - Chung King Can Suck It included - for the CD What It Meant: The Complete Discography. In May 2015 a copy became the most expensive sale on Discogs.com, fetching $6,048, a record that stood for a year until David Bowie's second album, David Bowie, sold for $6,826.
Includes 1-sided lyric sheet. 150 copies pressed.

TOKEN ENTRY "from beneath the streets" (Mad At The World) - 14€
By the time Token Entry released "From Beneath The Streets" in 1987 on Kevin Seconds' Positive Force label, they were already one of NYHC's most beloved bands. Having existed in a slightly different incarnation as Gilligan's Revenge in the early half of the 1980's, Token Entry was comprised of scene vets from New York's hardcore-rich borough of Queens. One of the few NYHC bands of that era that managed to tour extensively, they were notorious for their high-energy shows and their lack of patience for tough-guy posturing. No account of late '80s, CBGB matinee-era NYHC is complete without this album. The present reissue makes "From Beneath The Streets" available on vinyl for the first time since the late '90s, complete with faithful reproductions of the original covers and inserts. LP includes free MP3 download of the entire album.

NECRONY "severe malignant pustule demo '91 + mucupurulent miscarriage EP '91 + promo tape '93/'94" (Fan Club) - 15€
Great quality collection featuring the band's first demotape "Severe malignant pustule" (1991), the "Mucu-Purulent Miscarriage" EP (1991) and their promo tape '93-94. Total early CARCASS gore/grind worship delivered by pre-NASUM members. Razor-sharp grinding riffs combined with rotten to the gore puking vocals in the best "Reek of putrefaction" tradition. If you like the Swedish school of pathological Grindcore (think of GENERAL SURGERY, early REGURGITATE etc) this is a total must have. 12 songs. Includes an insert with lyrics and a reproduction of the original cassette sleeve!

RHINO 39 - st (Radiation) - 16€
A long forgotten classic LP, finally back in print, in an edition of 500 copies on 180-gram vinyl. Formed in the late '70s at the same high school that spawned L.A. legends T.S.O.L., Rhino 39 had an unfortunate fate. After releasing a legendary single on Dangerhouse in 1979, one of the earliest examples of L.A. hc, lead singer Dave Dacron died in a car accident in 1980. His younger brother took over lead singing duties and though it took another six years for the self-titled debut-LP to be released, it still sounds like classic early 80s L.A. punk. A legendary band with a long forgotten classic LP finally back in print on Radiation Deluxe. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.

DEVOUR st (Sorry State) LP + CD - 10€
Raleigh, North Carolina's Devour were born from the ashes of Cross Laws, but rather than simply picking up where that band left off, the remaining members expanded to a 5-piece and followed the long southern tradition of adding traces of metal into our hardcore. What emerged was a record that is remarkably dense and complex, recalling the very best of the mid-80s trend of hardcore bands "going metal;" think Corrosion of Conformity's Animosity LP, Final Conflict's Ashes to Ashes and Septic Death's Need So Much Attention. There's also a heavy Japanese influence; people who have seen Devour live have compared them to Judgment, Lip Cream and Bastard, a connection only made clearer by this record's astonishingly heavy and powerful recording. In a scene where so many bands simply want to replicate something that has already happened, Devour sound remarkably fresh and progressive, and without losing a single thing you loved about hardcore in the first place. Sorry State Records #15
I feel that the music on this release is truly special, so we've put together a package meant to be as killer as these tunes. All first press copies include the record and jacket plus a GIANT 24"x24" poster, a Devour sticker, the lyric sheet, and a pro-duplicated CD featuring the LP in its entirety along with a TON of bonus material including outtakes, demos, a live set and other surprises.

This is total brutal grindcore at its best with nothing less than the 100% punk-as-fuck attitude to compliment what this band is all about!

We are proud to present a highly anticipated release: Deuter, with recordings from their earliest and most punk period. This album fills a huge gap, because until now these recordings were not available on such a noble medium.
Deuter, along with Dezerter and TZN Xenna, was the driving force behind the second wave of Warsaw punk in the early ‘80’s and one of the most significant bands in Poland. The group was unable to properly record their activity at that time, and afterwards they went through stylistic changes that can be heard on the vinyl EP and LP that were released in later years. No attachment to a single musical formula and a constant search for new means of expression meant that some of
Deuter’s work wasn’t always remembered, appreciated or noticed. Perhaps contributing to this was also their conscious absence from the Jarocin Festival.
Both at a musical and lyrical level, Deuter’s songs carried a huge emotional load, and even after more than 30 years since they were recorded they haven’t lost any of their power. Kelner’s brilliant lyrics perfectly and accurately described the bleak and aggressive reality of the People’s Republic of Poland. They are a valuable testimony about finding oneself within an oppressive political system, gaining back the free space taken by two military blocs that were heading towards an inevitable nuclear confrontation. The band, telling it like it was without hesitation, automatically deprived itself of the ability to release a record in the unavoidable clash with the office of censorship. At the time, their strong anti-system message
left a big impression, and although it is related to a specific time
and place, it is nevertheless timeless and remains relevant even with systems, governments and politicians that are constantly changing. Their collages, manifests, flyers, zines or experiments with performance art and theatre are proof of the formations' multidimensional character.
"Demos 1981-1984" contains the following material: a four-track demo recorded at the Riviera-Remont Club in 1981, two songs recorded at Okólnik in 1982 and five songs recorded in the basement of the Hybrydy club in 1984. The instrumental track from this session was recorded for the Akademia Ruchu (Academy of Movement) and used in one of their performances. Because there are many songs in the band's repertoire that were never recorded in the studio, also included are fragments of two Warsaw shows - three songs from 1982 and two from 1984. The sessions included on this album were never released on vinyl before (except two songs appearance on "Victim of a safety pin" comp.LP), and some of them have never been published before on any format. As requested, the design of the LP is similar to the aesthetics of Crass, who were a huge inspiration for early Deuter. The album is released in
a "crass-like" cover that folds out into a poster, along with two
additional booklets. The first one contains collages, manifests,
graphics, translations of lyrics and lots of archival photos by Michał Wasążnik and Ania "Ada" Lyons, among others. The second one is a faithful reproduction of a zine handed out by the band at shows.
Attention! Put on your gas masks! Here is the great world of the nuclear era - 1 9 8 4!


KARA ŚMIERCI "demo 89" (N.I.C.) - 12
Legendary demo from 1989 polish hardcore punk band from Bielawa/Lower Silesia. Great old school hardcore punk with influences metal/thrash. New mastering on Riot Studio. Recommended!
"Polish HC ,,,,hard hitting and since I am American , the only big Polish band I know of is Dezerter. These guys are every bit as good as Dezerter, hard hitting and politically aware."

VIRUS "you can't ignore it forever" (Vomitopunkrock) - 16 (Black) / 17 (Purple)
One of (at least) two 80s UK bands using the moniker, not to mention the (at least) two bands from the states who chose it as well. This Virus originally formed in the summer of 1983 in Gillingham, Dorset, only managed to crank out two demo tapes before splitting up, but the second, "You Can't Ignore It Forever," is a brilliant slab of UK/anarcho punk that is loaded with fucking fantastic tunes. They had a track ("Oven Overture," from this demo) on a Mortarhate comp after they called it quits, and then 1/2 of the band started up again two decades later. Described as a mix between the Subhumans, Amebix, and Flux of Pink Indians Virus have that raw angry sound , not afraid to be slow like the Mob they will sit perfectly on your shelf alongside Alternative and Omega Tribe.
This is official reissue their second demo "you can't ignore it forever" originally released as a cassette tape in 1984 plus bonus songs from their first demo.

UGLY SHADOWS "kids of tomorrow" (S.A.V.) - 5
Female fronted punk band from Istanbul formed in 2014 featuring members of Era of Fear (GR) and Poster-iti (TR). It is now a nation undergoing a military coup and an even more uncertain future than the troubled times influencing the songs on their debut album. Their music – only some of which is sung in English – is based on the early 80s UK gothic-Anarcho-punk style and they do a superb job of it. “Kids of Tomorrow” is another anthemic song reminding me of UK favourites Skeletal Family. Limited to 100 Black pro tapes.

ΣΤΑΘΗΣ ΝΤΟΒΑΣ "νέα γένια" (B-otherside) LP + CD - 17
O Στάθης Ντόβας με το ήθος του και με το τραγουδιστικό ύφος του επιστρέφει την διαδικασία της μελοποιίας πίσω στις αρχέγονες ρίζες της. Παρ΄όλο το νεαρό της ηλικίας του, οι κοφτεροί στίχοι του και οι δωρικές μουσικές του κρύβουν μια τεράστια ωριμότητα και έναν προβληματισμό που εφορμά από τον κοινωνικό περίγυρο και αγκαλιάζει κάθε έκφανση της ζωής μας. Με αυτήν την δουλειά, γεννιέται ένας άρρητος δεσμός που μεταλαμπαδεύει τα πρώτα έργα του Διονύση και του Πάνου Σαββόπουλου, το κοινωνικό τραγούδι διαμαρτυρίας και το κίνημα του πανκ, σε μια φρέσκια και νοητή συνέχεια και συνέπεια καλλιτεχνικής ευαισθησίας.
‘Ένα τέτοιο φλεγόμενο έργο δεν θα μπορούσε να περάσει απαρατήρητο και δίνει την χαρά στην B-otherSide records να το παρουσιάσει σε μορφή βινυλίου που συνοδεύεται από cd και δισέλιδο ένθετο , σε 150 αριθμημένες κόπιες.

ΠΑΥΛΟΣ ΣΙΔΗΡΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ & ΟΙ ΑΠΡΟΣΑΡΜΟΣΤΟΙ "live στο An Club" (B-otherside) Μαύρο βινύλιο - 17
O Παύλος Σιδηρόπουλος αποτελεί μια σπουδαία παρακαταθήκη για το ελληνικό τραγούδι αφού με τα έργα του, μας άφησε μια πολύτιμη κληρονομιά στέρεων τραγουδιών,  βάζοντας και αυτός το λιθαράκι του σε αυτό  που σήμερα ονομάζουμε ελληνικό ροκ. Συνεπώς, κάθετι που αφορά την δημιουργία του και την ζωή του, εξακολουθεί να έχει ένα τεράστιο ενδιαφέρον στις μέρες μας, φωτίζοντας αθέατες μέχρι τώρα στιγμές.
Σε αυτό το πλαίσιο, ήταν τεράστια η έκπληξη της ανακάλυψης μιας πομπίνας από τον τότε ηχολήπτη του ΑΝ Μπάμπη Χαλάτση, ο οποίος έχοντας ηχογραφήσει τον Παύλο τα διήμερα 16& 17/3/1990 καθώς και 23&24/3/1990, μας προσφέρει σε πολύ καλή ηχητική ποιότητα μια εικόνα του Παύλου Σιδηρόπουλου λίγο πριν τον αδόκητο θάνατό του. Η ένταση και το πάθος του γκρουπ και του Παύλου συνολικά καθώς και η αλληλεπίδραση με το κοινό του ακούγονται καθαρά,  συμπληρώνοντας ένα μικρό ακόμα κομμάτι στο πόσο σπουδαίος performer υπήρξε.
Η B-otherSide, μετά από ηχητική επεξεργασία και καθαρισμό από τον εξειδικευμένο και έμπειρο ηχολήπτη Γιάννη Κύρη (
www.kyris.gr) κυκλοφορεί 11 από τα τραγούδια της συναυλίας σε μια αριθμημένη έκδοση βινυλίου 500 τεμαχίων, με gatefold εξώφυλλα τα οποία απεικονίζουν τις  αυθεντικές αφίσες της συναυλίας , οι οποίες μας παραχωρήθηκαν από το αρχείο του ΑΝ club. Από τα 500 βινύλια, τα 70 πρώτα κυκλοφορούν σε ειδική χειροποίητη κασετίνα, η οποία περιέχει μια γκραβούρα με το εξώφυλλο του άλμπουμ, δυο γιγαντοαφίσες- ανατυπώσεις από τις αυθεντικές αφίσες του AN, καθώς και ένα cd που περιέχει 8 ακόμα τραγούδια, το σύνολο δηλαδή  της συναυλίας .

BLANK SPELL “miasma” (World Gone Mad) - 15€
Blank Spell is a three piece band from Philadelphia, PA who formed in 2014, from the looks of things.  Blank Spell play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of post punk, punk, and death rock within their style.  Musically, Blank Spell can be said to be influenced by bands such as Rudimentary Peni, The Wipers, Arctic Flowers, early White Lung, and Criminal Code.  Since forming in 2014, Blank Spell have released a self-titled seven song demo in June of 2014,  a self-titled 7" in April of 2015, and a four track demo in July of 2016.  Miasma is the band's debut LP, which was released via World Gone Mad records on June 2nd, 2017.  On Miasma.

HALDOL “the totalitarism of everyday life” (World Gone Mad) - 15€
Haldol continues to evolve and explore the many facets of deathrock and post-punk on their newly released 3rd LP “The Totalitarianism of Everyday Life”. It’s difficult to pigeonhole Haldol’s sound to one particular band or style, because with every song they evolve from the last and put new twists and turns onto their style. They’ve always tending to shy away from the mundane, predictable or anticipated structures and sounds of post-punk. Instead, they tend to draw musical inspiration from a farther flung range of styles and approaches. “The Totalitarianism of Everyday Life” is a sonically haunting, decomposing and pained album with bursts of layered noise aggression, constantly pushing forward and unyielding.

OUTREAU - st (Une vie pour rien Vinyles) - 12€
After 2 EPs, the first album from this Parisian band. A mix of oi! and hardcore, hatefull vocals, rough sound and dark lyrics. Somewhere between Iron Cross or Negative Approach.

THE SEX PISTOLS "never mind the bollocks here's the sex pistols" (Fan Club) - 14€ (Yellow)
Great quality repro repress. Yellow vinyl with insert.

STRONG BOYS "riotshock" (Milk Run) - 14€
Strong Boys are a gay hardcore punk band from Dublin who are inspired in bringing about the destruction of bad attitudes and religious brainwashing. They write songs like “No Pope”, “Two Dads” and “Cocks and Crosses” with it’s opening line, “You call yourself a Catholic, But you like sucking cock”. This is queer liberation backed by a gruff Negative Approach style of hardcore punk. It seems that many gay hardcore bands verge on parodies where once you get over the initial chuckle of pun names like Black Fag, Gayrilla Biscuits and Youth of Togay, comes the realisation that most are kind of average. Not so Strong Boys who have more in common with legendary hardcore queer rockers Limp Wrist. Their debut LP is full of invective bile. On colored vinyl.

Great but little known UK 82 Punk/Hardcore Punk band from Lichfield, England.

CINDERBLOCK - st (Mendeku Diskak) - 14€
The latest assault of Boston punk madness is without a doubt Cinderblock! Last year this Bostonian punk attack immediately impressed with their killer demo “No Future” and now the punx are back in town, ready to put in the boot with their debut full-length for Brain Solvent Propaganda & Mendeku Diskak. Madness I’m telling you!
Instantly creating chaos with opener “Disarm”, Cinderblock does indeed deliver the sound for punks, skins and hooligans. Whether you want to go pogo, clench your fists, throw some cold stares and sing along or bash some motherfuckin’ skulls in (combinations optional), anything goes! Followed up by the raging “Blood On My Boots” you know there is no turning back, the energy from these rabble-rousers got a hold of you and your caught in the whirlwind of Oi!, UK82 and hardcore-punk on Cinderblock’s self-titled debut LP!
Anti -! Anti – everything! These lads are foaming and fuming over nukes, religion, the system, police, disco and having no future. You know, punk stuff, brought with a punk-as-fuck sound that reminds me of a pissed-off Blitz on the roids, with some of that Defiance and Oxymoron thrown in the mix! What a record, seriously, this is nearly 25 minutes of pure mayhem for the fans of that No Future Records sound, though the maniacs into newer bands such as PMS 84, No Time and Bricklayer will get a real kick out of this record as well!

KURRAKÄ - s/t (Trabuc) - 12€
A trio from Texas who build on the foundation of good old anarcho punk, but are adding a thrashing Spanish hardcore flavor to the mix. The overall feel I get is that this is pretty dark and gloomy, but sharp in it’s delivery – making it very interesting. Influences range from d-beat to death rock to anarcho punk, and it’s all there in the final result. It’s hard, it’s bouncy, it’s pissed, it’s hopeful… 10 tracks.
"I’ve reviewed a lot of great records over the last few years, but I feel guilty as hell to come up with this review just now. KURRAKÄ’s self-titled LP was released in 2014 by Trabuc Records and I have tons of reasons to love this band and record. In these ten songs we’ve been trailed off in a complete pandemonium of raw aggression by a three piece all-female bearers of chaos coming from Austin, TX.
The fierce vocals of Dru Molina (also in Criaturas) rip and rage in the Crudos school of thought, while the dark deathrock overtones remind me of the witty macabre of my all time favorite Rudimentary Peni. Lyrically the trio is screaming to the moon and casting spells about strength and women, shadows and spirits, blood and passion, chaos and freedom… Add to that the seething mass of buzzing raw punk guitars, pounding d-beat drumming and chaos magick symbolism, and you’ll have a masterpiece of an obscure hardcore punk record. I would love to get this on a 12″ LP (it’s been pressed on 400 copies in black vinyl and 100 copies in purple) and totally recommend you to check out not only Kurrakä’s recordings prior to their LP but also their fellow peers like Criaturas, Vaaska, and Impalers."

Distorted dark hardcore which channels the spirit of the classic Polish hardcore punk of DEZERTER or TRAGIEDIA (who they cover on the B side), mixes it with modern Barcelona bands ala DESTINO FINAL and incorporates quasi industrial beats a la CRESS with a hint of psychedelia creating a hybrid that is a monster on its own.

ΕΦΙΑΛΤΗΣ "κολοσσιαίο γυναικείο κεφάλι" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
Recorded at the same session that their debut EP on Static Shock Records and comprising one new track and two songs from their debut demo EFIALTIS second vinyl offering sees the band delivering a punch in the face of male musical normality. EFIALTIS, an all female London based trio with heavy Greek/ Cypriot/ Welsh roots, brings what feels like the most menacing, stomping feral punk recorded in the last few years. Their sound is militant and obviously punk based. Their songs are simple, anthemic and mechanical. Their beat is perfect marching punk and in my dreams I see a bill with CRISIS, STRESS (GR) and CONTROPOTERE where after the last note church, state and any form of oppression is overtaken. Recorded at NO Studios by the almighty John Hannon and with artwork by the band including a duotone lyric insert.

They were one of the first bands to define Scandinavian hardcore punk. Their second 7", Raped Ass, is considered to be a subgenre-defining D-beat record. Side A comprised of various demo recordings from 1982 - 1985, side B is the full Anarkist Attack demo from 1981.

CRUSADES "this is a sickness and sickness will end" (Anxious And Angry/Countless Altars) - 14€
Ottawa’s CRUSADES began in 2009 and the members played previous in SEDATIVES, THE CREEPS, BURIED INSIDE, THE STEVE ADAMYK BAND and others. The band’s initial and ever-evolving goal is to examine profound personal and universal topics - love, art, life, death. CRUSADES presents this finely crafted full-length of fast, melodic and powerful punk-rock teeming with fantastic musicianship.

UNA BÈSTIA INCONTROLABLE "metamorfosi" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 14€
Since emerging fully-formed at the end of 2012 Una Bestia Incontrolable have opened up a place for themselves among the very best hardcore-punk bands in the world. International hardcore is in rude health at the moment but while some indulge in enjoyable well-crafted genre exercises, a crushing mosh-part here, a studied d-beat there, UBI have developed a sound that's compelling and punk, but clearly apart from the autophagic morass that is often punk in the internet age.
Much of Metamorfosi finds itself as a series of shifting hypnotic pulses rolling into each other. Bass and drums chug onwards, a swirling erratic heartbeat, an oncoming force, a nagging buzz and rumble tickling your hindbrain just on the murky borders of conscious thought, as the guitar scritches and scratches with grubby panic, insistent catchy riffs needling and dragged out like stuckthought phrases, daggersharp licks shimmying forth in the sinister thrum.
The record reverberates with a sense of seething distress, mind and body teetering on the edge of a cataclysmic drop, Abric De Plom (Lead Coat) is a recurring nightmare, swallowing you up and unavoidable, the No Us Ho Esperaveu (You Weren't Expecting It) finds a militaristic drive as it echoes with the cold dislocation that is the dull pain-throb baseline of millenial life, Nosaltres Som La Carn (We Are the Flesh) thunders with physical discomfort, collapsing in on itself, Tot Sol is a freeing mechanistic 1-2 rush, the title track a stuttering scream of transformation.
Metamorfosi swings and lives with the threat of something constantly approaching, a change, an ending, some long-threatened eschaton finally invoked, something out there, a beast maybe, of some kind, uncontrollable and almost here. (Joe Briggs)
The album comes in a full colour sleeve with lyric insert designed by guitarrist Guillem El Muro and includes download code.

ARCHAIC is a new project based between Berlin, Venice and Barcelona. This  debut three track EP is a rusted nail of intense hardcore with industrial undertones which sits somewhere between FOGNA and DESTINO FINAL but with a bigger production. Guitar layers of repetition create a bed of noise when the delay infected vocals lay painfully. Someone called it the NWOIH and I won't be the one saying that isn't the case.

BLITZ "killing dream" (Fan Club) - 16€
This is nothing like the old Blitz, because its a record entirely played by the only original Blitz member, guitarist Nidge on bass and guitar, Gary Bassnet from Attak on vocals.  The result is an interesting post-punk sounding album, more relaxed and everything but OI ! sounding, with characteristic Nidge guitar playing plus a second guitar of basic but excellent riffling and soloing.
"Well, Mackie wasn't interested, and Carl was living in Australia at the time, but Link offered me th opprtunity to do another Blitz album, and I wanted to do it. The song "Killing Dream" was actually written in 1983 and intended as a Blitz song anyway; it would've been the follow-up to "New Age" if things had been different.
But it was an odding time, there was very little going on in the punk scene, and of course, we didn't have a drummer,se we had to use this horrible drum machine,which was the main drawback. But the album did pretty well for Link here, and it came out in America through Cleopatra." Nidge died in 2007, aged 48, shortly after a reunion tour.  Originally released in 1989 on Link Records. This is high quality fan club release.

CHEIFS "holly-west crisis" (Dr.Strange) - 14€ (Purple)
THE CHEIFS were Huntington Beach's answer to THE CIRCLE JERKS, BLACK FLAG, GERMS, THE GEARS and the other "founding fathers" of the early Southern California Punk scene. THE CHEIFS formed in 1979 and played along side bands like: ADOLESCENTS, SOCIAL DISTORTION, AGENT ORANGE, TSOL and many others.
This LP release contains their ultra-rare and sought after 1980 7"ep Blues as well as their songs from the equally sought after comp's from 1981 Who Cares and Cracks in the Sidewalk plus unreleased stuff! 13 songs in all of truly one of the best punk rock bands to have emerged from California. The Doc is doing back-flips over this one! Great old photo's and liner notes done by the band.

DEAD IN THE DIRT "the blind hole" (Southern Lord) - 15€
Southern Lord is honored to be releasing the debut album from Atlanta-based grindcore trio DEAD IN THE DIRT. "The Blind Hole is a blast-laden auditory dissent that is absolutely crushing!
Recorded with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) at Bricktop Recording Studio. The DITD sound takes cues from His Hero Is Gone, Drop Dead, (old) Napalm Death etc.. to horrifically relentless levels of blasting intensity. It is not very often that a new band can simultaneously and effectively spew forth such filthy chaos in a controlled manner. It is also rare that recordings from bands in this scene/genre display such clear and concise production values. This is literally one of the heaviest and most brutal recordings that has come out in recent times!

Originally released in 1984, “Sons of evil” is the first demo recording from the malevolent and sinister German entity known as POISON. This sounds so raw and extreme that even the band members took their time to decide whether to license a vinyl reissue or not, and the graal got unlocked only when after years of research through the most insane puritan collectors, we tracked a source whose quality was even “better” than the masters owned by the band and got it properly restored and mastered by our wizard H.O.D. at Toxic Basement studio. So one thing is sure: this LP is the matchless, best sounding version of “Sons of evil” you can dream about.  Now quoting what has been already said about this gem: as primitive and barbaric as a Stone Age gang-rape, this tape is possessed by total darkness and evil. Musically, this runs the gamut from morbidly mid-paced to intense and somewhat insane. It bears no real similarities to any of their German counterparts, such as Sodom, Destruction or Kreator. The slower parts sound very reminiscent of Hellhammer. The vocals of Virgin Slaughter are possessed and maniacal, at times, his demonic voice actually accentuates the dark mood of the music, rather than detracting from it. As for the rest of the songwriting, this is like a war on the senses. Primitive and violent in nature, the riffs saw through you while the drums pound your skull into oblivion. It is almost difficult to believe something so bestial and grotesque existed back in 1984. The sound is on the same level as the “Death By Metal” demo, from Mantas, and makes the old Venom and Bathory records seem like they were done in high-dollar facilities. “Sons of Evil” is a monstrous offering from a band that had truly tapped into something dark and aggressive.  Includes a booklet printed on old school fanzine styled light blue paper, with rare photos, flyers and excerpts from zines/mags of that era!

Σχήμα που δεν υπάρχει πια, αν και το cd κυκλοφόρησε στα τέλη του 2012. Με μέλη από Ανατέλλων Τρόμο (επανασυνδέθηκαν!) και Ανάσα Στάχτη, οπότε όχι μόνο ξέρετε τι να περιμένετε αλλά κυρίως πως το σκοτεινό, αγωνιώδες hardcore που παίζουν βρίσκεται σε κορυφαίο επίπεδο.Απλά!

MARTYRDöD / ADRESTIA "in solidarity with rojava" - 5€
Benefit EP, limited on 500 copies!
"In Solidarity With Rojava" is a split EP featuring two intense hardcore crust bands from Sweden. Martyrdöd shouldn't need any further introduction, the band has been delivering high quality crust punk since 2001, and today they have established themselves as a leading band in the genre.
Adrestia is a relatively new band, even though some of the members might be familiar because of their previous work in bands such as Shades Of Grey and Massmord. This EP is their first official release.
The bands contribute with two songs each. The Martyrdöd side of the EP starts with "Harmagedon", a song previously released on the "List" LP from 2016. It continues with a previously unreleased track called "Harmagedon part 2".
The Adrestia side features "Opium", as well as "The Sun Of Rojava", a tribute to the freedom fighters of Rojava. "The Sun Of Rojava" can also be heard of their debut album "The Art Of Modern Warfare", which will be released later this year.
However, the purpose of this EP goes beyond music. In a common statement the bands declare that this is a benefit record for Rojava, and that all profit from the sales of the record will go directly to Rojava.
They emphasize the similarities between the anarchist ideology often seen as the fundament of the crust punk scene, and the political system in Rojava.
The bands have created their own label/support organization called "Punks For Rojava" (
www.punksforrojava.org) solely for the purpose of supporting Rojava, and besides the release of this EP there are more project with the same purpose coming up.

RIXE "baptême du feu" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
French Oi! poster boys Rixe return with EP number three. Again it's a four tracker and there is no let up in the quality. It's full of snarl, bite and anthems. Tenter Le Diable starts the onslaught with some immense tom tom work before heading into another classic Rixe Oi! pounder. Paris-Est begins with a military beat before the guttural vocals and crunching guitars come in and smash you over the head. Every part of this two minutes and 53 seconds song is precise and perfect pop. Condamné is a straight down the line Oi! smash full of hate and bile and that Rixe wall of sound we know and love already. Last cut Hécatombe is a total head nodder that has bounce and a chorus to either die for or sing-a-long to Three EPs in and Rixe continue to take Oi! to new heights.
As it is a tradition on the Rixe 7” trilogy Baptême Du Feu 7" comes housed in a reverse board sleeve with collaborative artwork between Nick Rat and Maxime Smadja. Comes with lyric insert and download code.


S.H.I.T. "i" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
S.H.I.T. have been one of the best bands doing it live and on record for a few years now and here on their fourth 7" (and first since 2014) they reassert their place as mainstays of Toronto's killer scene by serving up four more tracks of total hardcore moving forward through chaos. Insidiation blowing a wild storm hung around an unstoppable chugging riff, panic and terror building as the song pounds onwards. Incorporation shifting from warped siren blare to terrible tear. Barks of frustration, howls of anger, emerging from the bruising punk squall, anguished and disgusted. A record that careers with breakneck verve from sinister pulse to blazing hardcore bombardment.
S.H.I.T.S’s new EP artwork was designed by the greatest Teodoro Hernández and comes with a download code.

CHRON GEN "chronic generation" (Radiation) - 14€
On vinyl, here's a reissue of the 1982 debut-LP by street punk unit Chron Gen, which formed in 1978 in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. The band debuted in 1981 with the classic 'Puppets Of War' EP and was part of the infamous 'Apocalypse' tour (also 1981) along with Discharge, Anti-Pasti, Anti-Nowhere League and The Exploited. For genre addicts 'Chronic Generation' is an essential title.


DEATHRAID "the year the earth struck back" (Agipunk) - 12€
FRESHLY REPRESSED!!! This record has originally been released in late July 2015, on time for their second European tour. By the time they came on tour (middle September 2015) the record was already sold out! For those who don't know what we're talking about, Deathraid hail from Seattle and this amazing d-beat combo features ex memebers of Disrupt, Consume and State Of Fear and strike for the second time back on Agipunk. Nine new bullets of absolutely relentless d-beat crust punk. Fans of Totalitar, early Disfear and of the aforementioned bands will have an orgasmic blast.


NADZóR ‎"your tolerance is shit if you don't try to understand us!!!‎" (Pasazer) - 11€
Noisy thrashcore coming straight from the small town of Oświęcim, Poland. This is fast, lo-fi noisy thrash with some slower metal breaks probably inspired by Metallica or Slayer, it's not really crossover though, could be compared to other Polish bands as The Corpse or Moskwa who were playing in the same approach at that time. This demo had been released first by the German label T.N.T in the late eighties, then reissued ten years later in Poland by Trujaca Fala, then reissued on vinyl last year with a proper and cleaner studio recording. Archive contains a huge booklet with lyrics, band pictures and history.

EDELWEISS PIRATEN "blizna" (Trujaca Fala) - 7€
This band from Olsztyn (with personal connections to UTOPIA) is around since quite many years, even released demo CD-R few years ago, but during all this time they had several personal/style changes. Now the line up is stable and they built their own sound - powerful, heavy and driving hardcorepunk with 2 guitars and mixed vocals leaded by strong and angry female voice. You can compare their sound to Tragedy, Wolfbrigade etc.,  not just another clone neo-crust band.


FUCKED UP "couple tracks" (Matador) DOUBLE LP - 20€
Double-LP compilation of Fucked Up‘s many, many hard-to-find uncollected 7″ and 12″ tracks. Entitled Couple Tracks, it contains 25 songs. Designed as a sequel to their earlier compilation, Epics In Minutes (Deranged, 2004), the cover photographs riff on the Beatles red and blue albums thang. Comes with complete illustrated discography of the contents, with extensive liner notes about each song.
Couple Tracks spans an extraordinarily varied (and extraordinarily collectible) musical career that has mainly been documented on 7-inch vinyl singles released around the world on many labels in many countries. Chronologically, it ranges from the A-side of their first single, No Pasarán, a commentary on the Spanish Civil War released on Deranged in 2002, to the fast alternate take of No Epiphany, their latest 7″ on Matador from earlier this year.


I SHOT CYRUS / DISCARGA - split (Peculio) - 10€
Two of the finest fastcore/thrash/hardcore-punk from brazil. DISCARGA is a powerful three piece band playing fast, straight forward hardcore punk music. I SHOT CYRUS well i think these guys no need for Intro..as always they put thrashcore on high level, totally pissed as fuck hardcore, the drummer from RATOS DE PARAO. This Split is totally balance for maximum beat punishment that you should get, play fast or die mothafucker!

LAZY CLASS / MAX CADY - Split (No Pasaran) - 10€
A 45er on 12″ format is without any doubt my favourite format: more songs than a 7″, a bigger jacket than a 10″ and a better sound than a regular album.
I was happily surprised when i received this split 12″ by two Polish bands. Honestly i don’t own many Polish Oi! records but slowly more and more Polish bands mke it into my collection.
Max Cady are new for me, but Lazy Class already made a good impression on me with their debute EP last year.
Lazy Class recorded four new songs of which one is sung in Polish. We Are Lazy Class and Concrete Jungle are two typical streetpunk songs which sound a bit like an uptempo version of Booze & Glory. My favourite songs are Stracone Pokolenie (no clue what it means) and Gotta Find A Way. The Polish song has a catchy guitar line and a nice sing-a-long chorus. Gotta Find A Way attracts my attention with the use of organ styled keyboards and punkrock styled singing.
I think the greatest quality of Lazy Class is the fact their music attracts Oi! lovers as well as people into punkrock or hardcore.
Max Cady on the other side also comes from an Oi! background although they have a more punkrock orientated approach. All four songs are sung in Polish so no clue where they sing about. Opening song Zgielk is an uptempo punkrock song with some winks to Rise Against / Propagandhi style. Dzieciaki is a Polish remake of the Blitz song New Age. But my favourite song is without any doubt Dis Na Chama. A catchy sing-a-lon streetpunk song which reminds me to Rejected Youth from Germany.
This 12″ is limited to 329 copies and comes with heavy weight insert. This is value for your money and a more than decent introduction to Polish Oi! and punk music.

MUNICIPAL WASTE "massive aggressive" (Earache) - 18€
Harder, faster and louder - much anticipated fourth studio album from infectious crossover thrash/speed metal bad boys; thirteen new songs to assault your ears with the toxic dose of massive old school madness from the band that built up a large following and widespread media acclaim over the last few years for their memorable brand of metal and notorious live shows - essential record!; limited gatefold black vinyl edition, limited to 500#.

OBLITERATIONS “poison everything” (Southern Lord) - 14€
Comprised of current and ex-members of Black Mountain, Saviours and Night Horse, OBLITERATIONS delivers a blazing blend of Poison Idea, Discharge, and Black Flag, set to a live show that willfully incites and encourages one’s aggressive tendencies to shine. Comes in Stoughton gatefold jacket. A day after returning from their Southwest US Tour in March, the band recorded with producer Chris Owens (Lords, Coliseum, Young Widows) at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in only three days. Mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Black Breath) at God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, the end result of Poison Everything is a thirteen-song, twenty-nine-minute record full of raw brutality, darkness and aggression, the album weaving its way through the annals of punk and hardcore, while still sounding fresh and vital.
The lead track “Mind Aint Right” is a two-minute blast harkening back to early ‘80s Japanese hardcore akin to Gauze, Lip Cream and GISM, whereas the scorcher, “Scapegoat,” walks a razor’s edge between d-beat Discharge influence and Swiss pioneers Celtic Frost, and “Shame,” which opens with a riff that lodges itself nicely between Spacemen 3 and The MC5.
 The band has always been very open to expressing their influences and inspiration by a bevy of diverse muses including Alan Watts, Laughing Hyenas, Blue Oyster Cult, The Stooges, Alice Cooper, Paul Bowles and Suicide. The blueprint isn’t the point here, it’s the results. The sound is abrasive and raw, driving and aggressive, and fully infectious. OBLITERATIONS’ mission is simple a one; write, record, tour, and that’s just what they do. 

PELIGRO! - st (Discos Enfermos) - 10€
This is a new band from members of HORROR, LOS DOLARES, ETACARINAE, PRIMATES, but brings a fresh sound not heard from any of their previous bands. The music is a heavy dose of BLACK SABBATH mixed with MOTORHEAD, and ANNIHILATION TIME comes to mind as well, but the real treat is that they keep it hardcore with the drive that many heavier bands can't keep up. I really liked these guys live and this record is testament to their skills. I first heard this 5% faster than the LP was recorded at, and I must say I really liked that speed too.

RUIN / T.R.I.B.E. - split (Agipunk) - 11€
A whole brigade of veterans for this new release. Ruin feature people from Doom, Disaffect, Debris, Scatha... and play totally 90's crust packed with nowadays powerful sound and anger. Tribe are ex-Scatha and are really close to them, lots of metal breaks that you'll dig even if you don't have long hair. Crust as fuck as always. Gatefold cover.


SKIN LIKE IRON "arrival" (React!) - 17

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


STINKY RATS "vergognati" (Gonna Puke) - 11€
This comes straight from the years when Torino's stages were put on fire by stellar bands like DECLINO, NEGAZIONE, NERORGASMO and tons more... and STINKY RATS had nothing to envy.
This LP includes their legendary "Vergognati" 12" that was originally issued by KINA's Blu Bus and WRETCHED's Chaos Produzioni in 1986, here re-edited and mastered from the original reels (!!!)...
A true pearl of pure Italian HC that had people from Negazione and Declino behind the mixer when it was recorded... Bonus tracks include the entire Demotape 1983

TRAP THEM "seizures in barren praise" (Deathwish) - 18€ (Clear Vinyl)
Recorded by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, "Seizures In Barren Praise" shows Trap Them at their most vicious. Having mastered their art of aural bludgeoning, the album musically stomps and claws with emotion. "Barren Praise" itself is a fictional ghost town version of every non-fiction town" says McKenney. "Lyrically, previous Trap Them releases are all stories from people who had lived in "Barren Praise" before deciding to up and leave. This is the story of those who stayed behind to tell the stories of watching everything unfold..." states McKenney. Upon listening, it's hard not to picture fragments of your own life as part of the chaotic debris that are these fictional lives. The friends, family, and faces of those that make up the ensemble cast of your own life are all there, indirectly. Making "Seizures In Barren Praise" a broken mirror for the world. Exposing every fear, weakness, and wound.

UNDERAGE "perche' non siamo nati per..." (FOAD) - 14€
Complete studio discography 1981-1983, 23 tracks including their classic EP originally released by Attack Punk Records (rated as one of the first 10 pure "HC" vinyls that ever came out in Italy) + the 1983 Demo + some early day recordings. Special mastering for vinyl sounding a lot better than the previous digipack CD discography. Napoli Hardcore/Punk at its climax of energy and spontaneity in full early '80s italo-HC shape. Fast, distorted to the bone, exploding in anger. Not only they were among the first in Italy to introduce the D-beat formula of the first wave of Dis-influenced bands (think of Eu's Arse as well) but they also added an overdose of buzzsaw distortion that made their nuclear feared / post atomic sound a real gem for those who're able to discern this kind of atmospheres and also those who enjoy the latter wall of noise HC of bands like Confuse, Gai, Gudon and similar ear destroyers! Including 12 page 'zine styled booklet filled with rare flyers and photos.


VICTIM "all our dreams are gone" (Rave Up) - 13€
Formed in Belfast in Mid -1977, Victim soon became familiar faces on the emerging Belfast scene. Following their appearance on the legendary UTV punk documentary 'It Makes You Want Top Spit' and a rapidly increasing live following, Terri Hooley signed the band to his Good Vibrations label in 1978 and released Strange Thing By Night / Mixed Up World 7". Early gigs saw them playing with The Fall and Revillos as well as playing the legendary Factory club to accompany the screening of Shellshock Rock, a film on Irish punk featuring among others Victim. A second release Why Are Fire Engines Red / I Need You on TJM secured good reviews and radio support from John Peel despite its horrendous cover. In November 1979 Victim supported the Damned on an extensive tour. Rat Scabies produced the band's third and in my view best single The Teenage / Junior Criminals / Hang Onto Yourself released in 1980 on Illuminated records. This anthology contains a great selection of all their punk material. If you are a fan of Undertones and Stiff Little Fingers, don't miss it.

STREET DOGS / NOI!SE - split (Pirate Press/Randale) - 12€ (Red Vinyl)
Both groups have partnered in the past with Pirates Press on previous releases and are extremely excited once again to have this opportunity to really showcase their new material. This EP certainly gives this material the full treatment, and should keep all the fans happy and anxious for the other upcoming releases both bands have in store later this year. Noi!se and Street Dogs both recorded three new songs for this split and the fun that they've both had putting it together has both bands already talking about followup splits with other bands that they love and want to share with their fans. This is the remaining stock from Record Store Day 2014. Vinyl version includes digital download.

Official re-issue originally released in 1985 on Kevin Seconds own label Positive Force. 7 Seconds third E.P., finally available again since the early 90's. Includes all the original first press artwork and includes a bonus retrospective insert by Kevin Seconds.


BATTALION OF SAINTS - st (Southern Lord) - 6€
A raging return from legendary West Coast punk heathens: Battalion of Saints. Led by surviving member: George Anthony. 3 furious brand new songs that will kick your ass just as effectively as their old classics. Available on limited edition 7” vinyl. For fiends of: Poison Idea, Discharge, old school Hardcore.


BLOOD SUCKERS "night of the sadist" (Hardware) - 5€
You might remember the crushing Blood Suckers - Crush To Dust 12" from earlier this year?! Meanwhile they went on a small European tour with their brother in URBNANOIA and recorded a couple of new songs which will be released as a six song 7" next months as well.

 
BRAIN KILLER - s/t (Deranged) - 5€
Debut 7” from Massachussetts hardcore band – BRAIN KILLER. Fast, noisy, powerful hardcore with heavy influence from Japanese hardcore like BASTARD / DISCLOSE and straight forward American hardcore like DEATHREAT.


BRAIN KILLER 2nd (Vinyl Rites) - 5€
Picking up where 2011’s "every actual state is corrupt" left off, this is the new 7" of hardcore music from Boston’s BRAIN KILLER. Mixing CRUCIFIX, DEATHREAT, and driving Japanese hardcore. BRAIN KILLER have made their most powerful and mature release yet. Really it just sounds like a hardcore DISCHARGE, but what else would you want? The best song writing - distilling riffs into simpleness with no filler!


CAUSTIC DEFIANCE "caustic defiance" (Kangaroo) - 5€
Caustic Defiance was the band the Stepe brothers formed after Negative Element broke up and they were forced to relocate to central IL in a farm town far removed from any sort of punk rock scene. Instead of throwing their hands up in the air and decide to start working the farm, the brothers brought punk rock to Peoria and put that town on the punk rock map. Unlike Negative Element, Caustic Defiance never put out any records, they simply recorded a bunch of songs as a demo tape that unfortunately mostly sat in a shoebox. This 12-song 7" is taken from their 1983 demo tape and that band was pretty much a straight up hardcore band typical for that period of time and could easily hold its own up against any of the “well known” bands of that time.

HEVN "what goes around comes around" (Sjakk Matt Plater ) - 5€
Οι Hevn (μέλη από KORT PROSESS και Jinriksha), όπως οι Summon The Crows, 2.20 και Going Under, αποτελούν τη νέα ουσιαστική πρόταση στη σκηνή της χώρας τους. Ήχος βαρύς, σε μεσαίες ταχύτητες, με βάρβαρα γυναικεία φωνητικά και δυνατό πολιτικό μήνυμα, με σαφείς επιρροές από Rudimentary Peni, Anti-Schism και Kort Prosess και So Much Hate με πολλή δύναμη, οργή και χαρακτήρα.


KNUSTE RUTER "var det bare en løgn" (Sjakk Matt) - 5€ -
Πολύ καλό EP με έξι τραγούδια από τους Νορβηγούς KNUSTE RUTER (σημαίνει «σπασμένα παράθυρα»!), που αποτελούνται από μέλη των HEVN και SUMMON THE CROWS. Ωστόσο, το παίξιμό τους παραπέμπει στις κλασικές μπάντες των 80s, όπως STENGTE DØRER και SO MUCH HATE. Σφυριχτές κιθάρες, μπουκωμένα σολαρίσματα, εκρηκτικά hardcore ξεσπάσματα και σκληρά φωνητικά συνθέτουν την εικόνα των KNUSTE RUTER. Μαζί και αφίσα! Ακούστε τους εδώ:


MONSTER / DAYMARES - split (Mind Over Matter/Brown) - 4€
Κάθε μπάντα με δυο καινούργια κομάτια. Οι Monster από το Βερολίνο σε κλασικό για αυτούς δυνατό hardcore/crust. Οι Daymares από τη Βαρσοβία με σκοτεινό μεταλλικό hardcore/crust.

NATURAL LAW "spring trash" (Hardware) - 5€
These 4 songs originally came out in 2010 as a self-released tape. Hailing from the New Jersey and New York areas, NATURAL LAW cultivate a gritty, rough, superbly '80s sound on their "spring trash" demo. The songs which vary from frantic hardcore lunacy to floorboard rattling pounders usher for its rumbling 6min. existence. NATURAL LAW is by no means complicated, but this is an excellent starting point, especially for a demo tape.


NERVOUS TREND "shattered b/w decency" (Black Wire) - 6€
Perth, Australia’s NERVOUS TREND releases their first 7″ EP as a split release with RESIDUE RECORDS (USA), SCHWARMA (USA), and BLACK WIRE RECORDS (Australia). These two songs combine a hypnotic melody and heartbeat rhythm that will not leave you alone. Dark, haunting music with empowering lyrics that feel and move through each song. This band breaks the current mold of punk and post-punk by blending both so damn perfect. In this day and age, this record needs to be listened to… and often.


SEDATIVES "teenage runaway" (Erste Theke) - 5€
Yes it is true - the Ottawa Boys strike back. The energetic melodies that blast through every SEDATIVES song, are simple and mind blowing. The harmonizing vocals of the 4 gentleman are the perfect balance of aggression and sincerity while the predominant bass, the organ and drumbeats keep the motivating energy that drives their music. The SEDATIVES dared to go step further and once more set a landmark in the little mundo punko with this new record that will shake your heart and legs. You will never be disappointed with this 7"!

FUCKED UP "couple tracks" (Matador) DOUBLE LP - 20€
Double-LP compilation of Fucked Up‘s many, many hard-to-find uncollected 7″ and 12″ tracks. Entitled Couple Tracks, it contains 25 songs. Designed as a sequel to their earlier compilation, Epics In Minutes (Deranged, 2004), the cover photographs riff on the Beatles red and blue albums thang. Comes with complete illustrated discography of the contents, with extensive liner notes about each song.
Couple Tracks spans an extraordinarily varied (and extraordinarily collectible) musical career that has mainly been documented on 7-inch vinyl singles released around the world on many labels in many countries. Chronologically, it ranges from the A-side of their first single, No Pasarán, a commentary on the Spanish Civil War released on Deranged in 2002, to the fast alternate take of No Epiphany, their latest 7″ on Matador from earlier this year.


THE INSANE "demo 1981 and more..." (Vomitopunkrock) - 17€ (Colour)
The Insane from Wigan formed in 1979. Middlehurst (guitar) had previously played in the unrecorded punk band Sammy And The Skunx, who "did garage/punk versions of old rock classics but with new and stupid lyrics!", and the lineup was very young at the start, with some of the group having only just left school. The band were rank amateurs, with Tina utilising the one-finger down the neck method made infamous by Crass. The band gigged for a year or so before making their vinyl debut with a track called 'Nuclear War', which appeared on the 1981 compilation LP Ten From The Madhouse. By this time the band had undergone a series of lineup changes. Around this time (May 1981) Bambi helped out playing drums for Discharge and then went onto join Flux with The Insane's other founding member, Middlehurst. So at this point, The Insane was actually defunct.
However, towards the end of the year Middlehurt and Bambi had both decided to reunite The Insane. Beki from Vice Squad, with whom Bambi was "having a fling", passed a copy of their demo tape onto Riot City and their debut EP was released: the crappy sounding Politics. One song fom it, 'Last Day', was plucked to appear on the hot-selling Punk And Disorderly compilation soon after. (Funnily enough the EP did not feature Barry Taberner, who had failed to make it to the studio, leaving Middlehurst to take over vocal duties.) December '81 saw them playing the Xmas On Earth festival with The Damned, The Exploited and GBH.
Come May 1982 the band released their second single, the semi-classic El Salvador, with new singer 'Dr' Dean Mitchell being responsible for the deligfhtfully cartoonishly punky vocals. The title tune was backed with a new and improved version of 'Nuclear War' and a decent stab at The Heartbreakers' 'Chinese Rocks'.
Although the single was a success, climbing as it did to No. 6 in the indies, at this point the two founding members of the band came to loggerheads over a gig one of them wanted to blow out, and the world ended up with two Insanes: one featuring Bambi and Dean Mitchell, the other being led by Middlehurst and Taberner. The Middlehurst/Taberner version of the band released the Why Die! single in October 1982 (it made it to No. 38 in the indies), pretty much cementing them as the "proper" version of the group, while Bambi's version gigged more extensively but a proposed second No Future single failed to materialise.
In 1983 Bambi joined Blitzkrieg just in time for the Animals In Lipstick 7". After that, he and Blitzkrieg's guitarist Gary Sumner re-joined the Middlehurst/Taberner version of The Insane for some shows in mainland Europe, and in 1984 they released their final vinyl, a split single, The Insane / Skeptix.
After The Insane split, Bambi formed The Parasites with ex-Blitzkrieg singer Spike, which eventually left to the reformation of Blitzkrieg in 1991. Bambi later played with John Peel favourites Doctor And The Crippens and Hotalacio, and also for a short while played with a reformed Flux.
This post by melodyman on the Wigan World Forum pretty much sums up the The Insane: Most Wigan bands played a lot of cover versions and only had a few songs of their own, which were easily recognised because of the quality difference. Many Wigan bands had one or two positive things,but a few things missing. The Insane and The System,probably the two best Wigan punk bands, were relatively good punk bands. Both bands had the typical,but good punk image. Both bands had the energy and stage aggression to hold a punk audience.Both bands had their own songs - The Insane released a couple of singles. But! Both bands didn't seem to have the songwriting and playing versatility and they didn't seem to have the melodies to capture a wider audience or to move away from the punk scene,which greatly limited them. Also, the two bands were on the Wigan music scene in the early 1980s,which was a little late for punk music. If they had been around in 1976/77,they probably would have been better known and may of had some major success.

THE NEWTOWN NEUROTICS "pissed as a newt" (No Plan) - 16
Pissed As A Newt is an album worth of EARLY (´78-´80) live recordings that were only released as a cassette in 1982 on Steve´s NO WONDER records. Now it´s available on vinyl for the first time ever! Comes with a double sided insert with lyrics and unpublished photos of the band! All this material was written and performed long before the first album. Thought provoking Punk Rock with melody and punch that Newtown Neurotics have always been known for.

PHOBIA / EXTINCTION OF MANKIND split (Agipunk) - 12€
These two band need no introduction, both active since the early 90's they've continued developing their sound throughout the years and we are proud to release them. Extinction of Mankind are the heaviest and most perfect fusion of bands like Amebix, Antisect, Discharge and lots of metal, sheer brutality. Phobia play incredibly fast, brutal, tight and technically skilled grindcore with raging lyrics as it's supposed to be. This is the very first grindcore band released by Agipunk (Agigrind?) so we choosed the best!


RED ALERT “the oi! singles 1980/1983” (Common People) - 15€
North East of England outfit Red Alert originally formed in their native Sunderland in early 1979 with a line up of Steve Smith on vocals, Tony Van Frater on guitar, Gaz Stuart on bass, Kid Stocker on guitar and Mitch filling the drum stool. It was this version of Red Alert that recorded the legendary “Third and Final” EP (sometimes know as “Border Guards”), which was released on their own label in the summer of 1980 with all 250 sleeves actually glued together by the band themselves!
Leading Punk label No Future Records picked up on the band (who by now had Nobby on drums and slimmed to a four piece with the departure of Kid Stocker to Red London) and their first release for the label was the legendary “In Britain” EP which shot to the top of the then important Independent Chart.
Incidentally the two demos featured on this release, “S.P.G.” and “I Tore Your Picture Up”, were actually recorded at the same sessions as “In Britain” but, until now, had remained unreleased. A second Indie Chart hit came via mid 82’s “Take no prisoners” EP and they became a leading live attraction following gigs with the likes of The Business, Blitz, The Partisans and Peter & The Test Tube Babies. The “City Invasion” 7” preceded the release of Red Alert’s debut album “We’ve got the power” which, in true Punk value for money style, contained none of the bands singles releases and a different version of “S.P.G.” from that which had appeared on the legendary “Carry on Oi!” LP. A top 5 Indie Album Chart entry, the LP was followed by the six track 12” “There’s a guitar burning” thought this turned out to be the bands last release for No Future as the label folded in early ’84.

After having been in limbo for the better part of 30 years, we are proud to bring you the long lost "BASIC TRAINING" E.P. by Norfolk, VA's FRONT LINE. Commonly known as the "Second Demo" by tape traders over the years, this was recorded in October of 1982 shortly before the band imploded, leading to the formation of BONESAW and eventually GOD'S WILL. "BASIC TRAINING" features 10 tracks of primal and vicious USHC not unlike fellow Virginians WHITE CROSS with whom they shared the stage many times over their brief existence. Select tracks from this session would go on to be featured on compilations like THE MASTER TAPE VOL. 2 on Paul Mahern's Affirmation Records (along side bands like MECHT MENSCH, ZERO BOYS, NO LABELS, and many more) and the legendary all Virginia TARANTULA ON MY COCK tape that guitarist Jeff Clites would release in 1983, but this is the first time all of these songs have officially appeared together the way they were meant to.

THE PROJECTIONS "detroit punk rock history repeats itself" (Rave Up) - 5€

Mario Micheli (bass, vocals and littering), Tony Samuels (drums) and Johnny Spark (known outside of Detroit music circles as John Micheli, guitars, vocals and attitude). 
In March of 1982, the band recorded their 7" 'Hyperactive/Individual', a solid punk wave two sider now really collectable. This EP contains their original recordings, the re-mastered 2009 versions and one great unreleased original tune!

RAW NERVES "burnt skin" (Inimical) - 4€
Raw Nerves follows up the well recieved LP and 7" from last year with another short burst of politically minded rage. Forever unappologetically out of step with current trends, Raw Nerves cannot fall in line with the current crop of apolitical punk and hardcore. Offering up three songs railing against religion, misogyny and apathetic punk culture. As always, their release coincides with touring that will see them take their message directly to the people whether they want to hear it or not.

REGULATIONS "different needs" (Havoc) - 4€
The 3rd release on Ny Våg by the greatest swedish Hardcore band existing today! This is the third single (1 full length and 1 great 12!" also under their belt) from the REGULATIONS and it gives you more of everything that you love about these guys, 4 songs of angry, undeniable energy in the vein of THE GERMS, ADOLESCENT and CIRCLE JERKS. This is the real deal!

SIGNAL LOST "you'll never get us down again" (Trujaca Fala) - 4€

Austin,Texas's SIGNAL LOST's second record follows their debut LP in an inventive mix of melodic guitars,impassioned female vocals, and mid-tempo Hardcore-edged punk rock with a hint of garage, new wave and '77 punk. These four diverse tracks-From a melodic mid-tempo charger to the bands fastest, most hardcore material are the debut of new drummer Chris, who previously was in SEVERED HEAD OF STATE and is currently also in J-CHURCH. Guitarist Stan, who was previously in BALANCE OF TERROR and DEATHREAT, produced and recorded this stripped down recording which highlights his raw HUSKER DU -ish guitar sound.

SLUGZ "empty space" (Cowabunga) - 4€
Slugz were a band I caught the name of either on fliers for a bit of time online or fliers I'd randomly get from VA friends but never heard em' until I got the 'Suit and Tie' EP last year off Sam and had my mind blown. Pefect blend (to these ears) of late 70's punk, 1980-81 HC, garage punk/rock and rockin' riffs. Plus to make it a bit different from the rest, vocalist Sam (Sam is also the name of their guitarist, who you may know best from Got Myself zine infamy!) is intense as it gets, screaming and howling and its very non traditional for this style of punk but it totally works! I can't try and sell you anymore on this, this is truly solid stuff from a bunch of talented youths.

LP's

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL / S.A.T.A.N. - split (Trujaca Fala) - 5€
Two Polish bands entered recording studios for the 2nd time and decided to put the result of those sessions on one split LP. Good idea, as both bands can be placed on similar shelf - angry, fast, full of fury punk mixing fast hardcore with powerviolence and grindcore. You can say they are inspired by Artimus Pyle, Iron Lung, Dystopia, Orchid, Discordance Axis among many others. The Bold and The Beautiful from Lublin (with people from Amen, Antichrist, Knife in the leg, Silence and more) go more into 80's hardcore direction, but with full speed. S.A.T.A.N. (with guys from Romeo Must Die and H-407) go more into grind direction. Brutal record.

THE DREAM IS DEAD "hail the new pawn" (Escape Artist Records) - 13€
Brutal Hardcore! The Dream is Dead provides no-holds barred hardcore. And i mean vicious - often venturning into grindcore territiory. Fast marches give way to intense grinds, then hard-core breakdowns, or in any possible order, with hardcore shouting all the while. The riffing is a mixture of power chords, muted notes, single note lines , and the very caustic "jazz" chords that sound reminiscent of The Dillinger Escape Plan.
"The Dream is Dead" was produced by Alex Newport, which if memory serves correctly, was the partner in crime of Max Cavalera in Nailbomb. "Hail the New Pawn" is easily one of the most "pissed-off " records I've heard. It is saturated with angst, in the music and lyrical content, like a wake up call to what is going on in the world. This is a must for hardcore fans, or anyone who likes music that is extremely volatile.

THE NOW-DENIAL "mundane lullaby" (Sbotage) - 10€
If you take a look at german hardcore music, you're bound to notice THE NOW-DENIAL. After 7 years of chaos, emotion, blood, sweat and black humuor, THE NOW-DENIAL has put out their 3rd full-length album. 'Mundane lullaby' brings 12 brand new harsh, pissed off hardcore songs. Soundwise the production of this record is much better than on their previous releases. THE NOW-DENIAL's brutality rolls on, crushing all in its path! Brace yourself for heavy doses of hardcore, bitter demented vocals, and over the top guitar leads - combined with a really nice artwork and gatefold-cover, this record is a killer and a must have!

POISON PLANET "boycott everything" (Third Party) - 8
Originally pressed as a 7" on Refuse Records out of Europe for Poison Planet's European tour in June 2011, the US version has been a year long project. The band felt that the 7" format lacked the visual impact that they intended and the lyrics and art had been rushed. The US version is a one sided 12" EP, with a screen printed "B" side. The front and back cover art have been updated and the lyric sheet has expanded from a small jam packed insert that was just columns of white text on a black background to include relevant imagery and additional essays. Lastly, to add to the final package they've included a 24"x36" black and white poster.
Comparisons are consistently made to early 80's Boston hardcore, early Corrosion of Conformity, The Repos, and with this release an emerging element of Dead Kennedys influence.

SURROUNDINGS st (Free Cake) - 12€
Baltimore, MD's Surroundings offer their most crushing material to date with their debut self-titled full-length. After a split 10" with New Jersey's Pellinore and numerous full U.S. tours, Surroundings has quickly made a name for themselves. Surroundings offer 11 drug-induced tracks on this 12" piece of wax, which includes furious speed not unlike Terrorizer or Haymaker, to crushing drone much like Neurosis or His Hero Is Gone. LP includes digital download.

VIOLENT ARREST "...distorted view..." (Boss Tuneage) - 12€
This is a politically charged smasher, bringing UK vets from respectable outfits like RIPCORD, HERESY and FOUR LETTER WORD together for a go at fast, no frills punk in 2015. Life Inside The Western Bloc is over before you know it, so best pay attention as these ten tracks lash out at societies tipped scales, war time mentalities, mindless racism and other issues of ignorance and frustration in the Western world. The addition of Welly on vocals seems to put a more anthemic boldness to the music than the searing edge RIPCORD was known for. This record burns fast and bright and luckily on the CD release, the good people at Boss Tuneage threw on the tracks from 2013's Distorted View and the VIOLENT ARREST side of the split with ENDLESS GRINNING SKULLS. Filled with just as much piss and vinegar, this earlier incarnation of the band by UKHC pioneer Steve Hazzard and is equally stirring. Fast, furious, pissed and to the point VIOLENT ARREST leaves no doubt about their intention. Good stuff.

RAKTA "tudo que e sólido" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 5€
Brazil's RAKTA unleash two new tracks of eerie and atmospheric post punk. From the moment the songs start you will find yourself trapped in a cave of beautiful, yet haunting tunes, in most cases, people will want to seek a way out, in Rakta's case, you will never want to leave. 'Tudo Que E Solido' is an instant nugget that fits somewhere between BLOOD AND ROSES and THE DOORS. It's driven by the tom tom work and the insistent and drone like keyboard work. The track builds and builds into a dark cresendo. On the flip is 'Serpente' - a 6 minute and 15 seconds dirge that's part SIOUXIE AND THE BANSHEES' 'Lord's Prayer' and part 'Ballet Bag' demo era RUBELLA BALLET.
The record comes housed in a  beautifully put together booklet sleeve wraparound with printed inner sleeves with art by guitarrist Laura Del Vecchio Lança.

COMEBACK KID "broadcasting..." (Victory) - 15€
Comeback Kid need no introduction as they have established themselves as one of the biggest and most important hardcore bands of their time. Through relentless touring and two critically acclaimed albums, the band built themselves from playing basements in their hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to spanning the globe alongside bands like Gorilla Biscuits, Rise Against, Madball, Sick Of It All, Bane and many more.

Down and Outs are back with the follow up to "Forgotten Streets" - and they've gone and done it again! Anthemic street punk which hits all the right spots, you need this album! If THe Clash had come from Liverpool and been born 30 years later they would have sounded like the Down and Outs! The band believe "LIFELINE" is the best thing they have ever done, and I'm not arguing with that statement.

CUT OFF st (Scarecrow/7inch) - 6
Το φθινόπωρο του 2015 οι Cut Off μπήκανε στο στούντιο και ηχογράφησαν δέκα κομμάτια με σκοπό να τα κυκλοφορήσουμε σε εφτάρι. Λίγο αργότερα η μπάντα διαλύθηκε και η ηχογράφηση μπήκε για λίγους μήνες στο συρτάρι... όχι για πάντα όμως. Τελικά το φθινόπωρο του 16' μαζί με 7inch και την μπάντα αποφασίσαμε να το κυκλοφορήσουμε το συντομότερο δυνατόν. Το εφτάρι περιλαμβάνει 10 κομμάτια γρήγορου hardcore, αυτή τη φορα ο ήχος είναι λίγο πιο βρόμικος σε σύγκριση με το δίσκο τους. Το εφταράκι κυκλοφορεί σε 250 κόπιες, όλα σε μαύρο βινύλιο.

In the fall of 2015 Cut Off entered the studio and recorded ten tracks in order to release a 7 inch. Shortly afterwards the band dissolved and the release was postponed.... but only for a few months.
In the fall of '16 along 7inch distro and the band we decided to release the record as soon as possible. The 7" includes 10 tracks of fast hardcore, this time the sound is dirtier compared to the bands LP. The 7" is released in 250 black copies.

ANTI STATE CONTROL "glu sniffing blues" (Vomitopunkrock) - 6€
Anti State Control were from Great Dunmow in Essex and had their brief moment in the sun in the early 80's. They recorded a cassette called 'We Are The Leopards' and a practice tape but their only proper single was 1983's 'Sniffing Glue Blues' ep which is now one of the rarest UK punk singles from the 80's. The last copy sold for over 700 pounds on Ebay. 'Sniffing Glue Blues' starts all mellow before bursting into life and rage. It's a thrilling yet amateur punk rock nugget. Limited to 300 copies reissue.


DEAD NATION "painless" (Kangaroo) - 4€
Painless was last record from Dead Nation. WhenEP was relased, Dead Nation were breaking up because Matt Molnar already left the band few months before and since he was one of the main founders of Dead Nation, other members decided to break up the band and start a new band which was TEAR IT UP.  If you haven´t this record for some reason, now this is your chance to finally rectify that mistake.

BITS OF SHIT "cut sleeves" (Homeless) - 14€
And thus, the band is Bits of Shit. These charmers have been around for about 3 and a half years, having morphed from another previous outfit, The Southernhay Orphans. The band consists of Danny on vocals, Andy on guitar, Elias on bass and Pete on drums. They've played over 50 shows in their lifespan, released a 7" on Melbourne's Lexicon Devil label (now sold out), tore up the east coast a couple of times and played at Melbourne's annual Maggotfest at the Tote. They're even set to play Memphis' Holy Grail of rock & roll festivals, Gonerfest, September 2012 (as well as other shows throughout the US). Their ages range from the early 20s to the early 40s. In real life, they are responsible citizens, two of them educators of young children; on stage, they are Bits of Shit. Cut Sleeves is the debut full-lengther from the band and is available only on the 12" long-player format, featuring a download card, lyric sheet and the stunning cover art of local artist, Rona Green. All 13 tracks were recorded by the band and mixed and mastered by man-about-town, Mikey Young. The sound of Bits of Shit is caught within the netherworld of tough-arsed Aussie punk/pub rock a la Powder Monkeys / X / Rose Tattoo, the fuzzed minimalism of Wire and The Wipers and the art brut of Black Flag and their minions. Danny's nasally howl is part John Lydon and part Bon Scott, Andy’s guitar hysterics stem squarely from the Ginn-damaged school of six-string dementia, and that rhythm section... those kids are sphincter-tight. In short: THIS IS THE REAL DEAL

AMBULANCE “dawn of a new beginning” (Wasted Sound) – 5€
Pretty polished Melodic Crust from Sweden's Ambulance. Killer production and very nice packaging.  

HACESJA "ultrafastnoisecore" (Refuse) - 6€
Straight from the depths of the Polish underground in the early 90's, Hacesja from Poznań was a band active between 1990-1992. More of a powerful example of youthful enthusiasm than musical skills, they still prove to this day how young idealist DIY scene members in Poland at that time had a motivation so strong that they inspired people to start making their own noise in basements all over the country. It was a time that was all about connections and networking and the members of Hacesja were heavily involved in tape-trading all over the world. The raw, noisy and downright primitive sound of Hacesja reflects their fascination of more extreme HC sounds and bands like Lärm, Neos, Siege or Infest, or even early grindcore. The lyrics and (anti)music give the impression that these three youngsters were well entertained themselves, likely while making their neighbors go insane. Hacesja was one of the very first bands in Poland to promote straight-edge. Drummer of this band, Adam Szulc started after that the most significant Polish Straight Edge band: Cymeon X. In 1990 Hacesja released a tape on US label Aneurysm Tapes with rehearsal and live recordings. This 7" contains the rehearsal side of the tape. It contains 8 songs including an Infest cover. It's strictly limited to 220 copies. It comes with a 12-page booklet including notes from each member and reprints of old interviews from "Maximum RocknRoll" and "Jersey Beat".

LOVE POTION "intimacy" (RSR) - 5
Early 90s danish Hardcore in the vein of Death Token style reminding of Gasmask Terror, in that they both play fast and dirty not PC hardcore that just skirts crust territory, but never quite crosses the line, and instead favors tighter playing and more memorable riffs.

Political Vegan Straight Edge Hardcore from Sweden. It's definitely one of the highlights of the Swedish HC scene in recent years, consist past and current members of such rad bands like DAMAGE CONTROL, SET MY PATH, SMACKDOWN, ANOTHER YEAR or GERILJA.

They're definitely on their own terms with the sound and their message of compassion and awareness. Hard-working band with impressive amount of the shows on their backs. They can ranks high among the best european hardcore acts right now!

BERURIER NOIR "macadam massacre" (Archives de la Zone Mondiale) - 14€
Their second LP finally available on vinyl again and in a beautiful design and package.
Bérurier Noir was a French punk band formed in Paris in 1983 by Laurent "Loran" Katrakazos (guitar), François Guillemot (vocals) and Dédé (drum machine). They called themselves "noir" (black) for the color of mourning (because their first concert was planned to be also their last) and for anarchy and "Bérurier" after the character from the novels of Frédéric Dard. Instead of being an end, the success of their first show inspired them to continue. A cult band, Bérurier Noir were loved by a generation of youth and feared by concert organisers for the riots that followed their shows.
On the one hand, Bérurier Noir's music was clearly derived from British punk rock as far as music and lyrics were concerned. Most of their songs were short, aggressive and usually based on a couple of basic power chords. Their lyrics reflected the typical concerns of punks such as the rejection of consumerism, politics and traditional social order and the anger felt by disaffected youth, tramps and outsiders in general. On the other, they added some interesting innovations. Their rhythm section consisted of a cheap (but still more reliable than a drummer) drum machine, which became an essential and arguably endearing part of their sound. The frequent use of a saxophone as of the mid-1980s also set them apart from most other punk rock bands.
They would regularly appear on record sleeves and on stage wearing clown outfits, mock police uniforms or pig masks. Their shows were a unique and highly festive cross between a punk rock concert, a grotesque circus and an anarchist rally.
The band refused to make a profit and also to work. As a result, they lived precariously. In 1989, after three farewell concerts at the Paris Olympia, they disbanded. François later formed Molodoï and "François Béru et les Anges Déchus", Loran formed Ze6, Tromatism and later A.D. (Division de la horde).

THE FIGHT "maldicion" (Phobiact/In My Heart/Blinded) - 8€
Long-awaited record from one of the most interesting and more active Polish bands of the last few years. Since 2005 THE FIGHT have consistently followed their own path, combining uncompromising socio-political message with raging punk sound, not being afraid of more melodic parts at the same time. After several european tours, numerous shows in Poland, a demo CD and a 7" release, the band presents their first full-length. "MALDICION" includes 12 fast, perfectly sounding songs with passionate female vocals. During the four years of its existence The Fight evolved from melodic hardcore/punk towards fierce harcore, sometimes even crusty, sound. Included is a booklet with lyrics raising important and ucnonventional issues, with polish tranlations and commentaries.

GENERACION SUICIDA "sombras" (Symphony Of Destruction) - 12€
Sombras is the third LP from Los Angeles' Generacion Suicida. Jangly guitars, male/female vocals, the group is obviously influenced by the Vicious and Eskorbuto, but retain the sound they have been playing for years, and once again keep that classic sound fresh, exciting, and most importantly relevant. 10 new tracks recorded in 2016 and finally available on vinyl. Each copy includes a 10 page zine insert.

THE KICK st (Static Age) - 13€
Like The Nasal Boys, Glueams and Bellevue Lp this official reissues adds some fantastique live tracks with their studio classics. The 11 tracks simply ooze of urgency and power. They follow a clear line, are melodious and retain their tenseness from beginning to end. The vocals by Sara Schär are melancholic, constantly demanding and crisp – in expression akin to those of Siouxsie Sioux – the guitar by Daniel Graessle varies between agitation and rhythmical precision, while the bass relentlessly pulsates... simply put, a possessing “wall of sound”.
In addition to the charismatic ex-TNT members, the guitarist Daniel and singer Sara (with The Kick she was also on bass), Jürg Planta (a studio musician and co-owner of Pyramid Studios) played the drums. Voco Fauxpas (Artag Studio) was responsible for the recording of the 12”. The outstanding cover art and band logo were done by Hannes Wettstein, an industrial designer who passed away in 2008 and the photographer Jerome Satinsky, who nowadays lives in Orlando, Florida. In other words, these were all protagonists who already at the beginning of the 1980s excelled through innovation and guaranteed quality within the Swiss underground scene!
