Sleaford Mods
Divide And Exit

Divide And Exit by Sleaford Mods is the follow-up to their breakthrough compilation album, Austerity Dogs. I think it’s fair to say that the Nottingham duo of Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearns, mixing beats, samples with sharp, witty lyrics and punk delivery have come up with a bit of classic. Includes the single, Tiswas.

Various
A Harbinger Sound Sampler

The fearsome Harbinger Sound label put together a compilation that captures the diversity and intensity of their current roster. A Harbinger Sound Sampler contains unheard tracks from Sleaford Mods, Consumer Electronics and Pain Jerk, as well as an astonishing array of angry, noisy and political tunes only available on double vinyl LP.

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
Marc Riley Session 2019

Legendary garage punk hero Wild Billy Childish dropped in on Marc Riley’s evening show on BBC Radio 6Music at around Easter time this year with his CTMF outfit and performed a session, with one newbie and three classics from Thee Headcoats. For those who missed it, they’re presented on a limited edition 7” EP! 

Colin Potter
The Where House?

Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, Other Bands - tireless sound-maverick Colin Potter has worked with them all, and knocked out an overwhelming stream of his own material since 1980 right up to the present day. The Where House? is one of his first releases, now remastered for vinyl by Dark Entries and sounding immense. Gluttonous bass and fringe synth in ‘Yoursmine’ are followed by choral drones of ‘Alleys’ and it only gets weirder from then on. Super industrial/post punk electronic experiments.

Ghost Wolves
Crooked Cop

Crooked Cop is the new single from Austin, Texas duo, Ghost Wolves. They mix rootsy blues, punk and garage and add the modern twist of electronic sounds here and there - this is something you’ll know if you have any of their 5 albums, of course. This new 45 is the perfect sound for Third Man Records. 

Warish
Down In Flames

The first thing to note about southern Californian grunge punksters is that they are led by Riley Hawk son of legendary skateboard guy Tony Hawk. Seems young Riley wants to bring the sludge back into indie rock and so has got together with a couple of pals to make something that has been described as Insecticide - era Nirvana crossed with the garage-punk of the Misfits. Expect bludgeoning riffs and lots of noise. 

The Dum Dum Boys
Let There Be Noise

Reissue for The Dum Dum Boys’ 1981 debut LP Let There Be Noise here. An important release in the story of New Zealand’s punk scene - some say Let There Be Noise is the first Kiwi punk record - this album is full of bratty riffage and young man fury. Iggy Pop, Ramones and a bit of Black Flag are all clear influences. 
  • Genre(s):

Thee Oh Sees / Total Control
Split


Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

The Birthday Party
Junkyard

The sleeve always looks to me like the contents of Nick Cave's brain around the era of 1982. This was the final album by his art rock scuzz collective the Birthday Party and sees them sorta trying to weld the Stooges and Captain Beefheart together whilst taking copious amounts of drugs. A brutal and skewed album which was way ahead of its time in producing uncompromising sludge and primal racket.

Section 25
Always Now

It's that time in musical history where we welcome a 5LP box set by Section 25. As well as the original album (think an adventurous Joy Division but from Blackpool) you get a disc on non album singles, a live show, a part improvised recording of an attempted follow up album and a recording of the car journey the band made to the studio. I jest of course. But this is a near holy grail for fans of second tier Factory records bands and to tempt you further each vinyl comes on a different colour and you get a 16 page booklet.

Oh Sees
Face Stabber

Some things are always true.  You're always less than 6 months away from a John Dwyer release. That release will be by a band using a variant on Oh Sees as its name. Dwyer will have recorded some of that album wearing jean shorts that stop below the knee. And the songs that fill that release will be high intensity fuzzy garage rock.  This album is called Face Stabber.

The Hand Of Doom
Poisonoise

If metal on metal is what you crave then The Hand Of Doom’s Poisonoise should float your boat. Originally released in 1979, this set of heavy metal and hard rock is the sort of record that should be played on every single pub stereo when friday night rolls round. The performance from The Hand Of Doom’s singer Andreas 'Iggi' Rossner, all exuberant histrionics and ‘Release The Bats’-style melodrama, is particularly good value for money.

No Sister
Influence EP

The latest EP available from Australian post-punk group No Sister. The 'Influence EP' was reportedly influenced (eh? eh?) by toying with traditional song structures and, bizarrely, Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'. If lead single 'Burning News' is anything to go by, expect moody vibes and deadpan vocals. 

WOW
Come La Notte

Centred in the Italian capital and consisting of the creative core of China Wow and Leo Non, WOW brings us its latest album, Come La Notte - or, ‘Like Night’. Taking over two years and an ever-changing cast of backing musicians to bring to life, it’s a collection of sophisticated and timeless pop balladry.

The Fall
The Unutterable Plus

Special deluxe edition of The Fall’s 2000 album The Unutterable, appearing here with a whole disc of extras! Now I don’t exactly know what to tell you about The Fall, you probably already know a thing or two about this band. This album brought Smith and the gang into the 21st century, and the critical dust on this album seems to have settled very positively.

Glove
No Blades No Bone

Louder Than War (Evil Blizzard, Girls In Synthesis) are very excited about their new signing Glove. And so they should be - if all of their records are going to be like new EP No Blades No Bone we can look forward to the emergence of an original new voice. With just a bass guitar and tom drum this duo make a frenzied avant-punk racket. Everything from The Slits to Rattle to Guttersnipe to Xiu Xiu is recalled by the pair across the four tracks of No Blades No Bone.
  • Genre(s):

The Cigarettes
You Were So Young

The complete recorded output of the short-lived and scandalously under-appreciated Lincoln punk band The Cigarettes. You Were So Young captures 22 tracks laid down between 1978 and 1981, including their singles and B-sides, a John Peel session and a handful that were never formally released. The 2xLP version also includes 20-page booklet, poster, sticker and badge.

The Comet Is Coming
Prophecy

The Comet Is Coming is a fun new project from some heads that you might know: yes, that saxophone is indeed from Shabaka Hutchings of Melt Yourself Down! He’s supported by synths and drums, making for a danceable, cosmic energy blast. The Prophecy EP, the first taste we’ve had of the group, is out on The Leaf Label.

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

Hand & Leg
Lust In Peace

Greek duo Hand and Leg make bass and drum music. There’s an important distinction between that and drum ‘n’ bass, in that this is post-punk / garage rock type stuff with an arty slant that has lyrics delivered via the force of spitting and screaming. Lust in Piece is their latest album, born from a busy period of writing, recording and touring that saw the pair earn a support slot with post-punk godheads, Wire. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Cool Greenhouse
Landlords / 4Chan

The Cool Greenhouse strip all the meatiest bits from Swell Maps, Pere Ubu and The Fall, leaving just the essence to create their sound and it is all underpinned, just, by a Casio keyboard. Over the two tracks of Landlords/4Chan they’ll tell you, in their own humorous way, about the nightmare of renting and put you in the shoes of an internet troll. 7” on Drunken Sailor.
  • Genre(s):

Sleaford Mods
Discourse

‘Discourse’, the third single from Sleaford Mods’ recent UK Top 10 album Eton Alive, released on 7” white vinyl and backed with the previously unreleased title track of that LP on its B-side. Jason Williamson is in fine vocal form as ever, spitting pent-up social observations over an equally tense backdrop of fast-paced bpms.

Snuff
There's A Lot Of It About

North London punks Snuff return after 6 years with their tenth album, There’s A Lot Of It About. It is the follow-up to their 2013 album 5-4-3-2-1 Perhaps?. The band, to the uninitiated, are a speedy, hook heavy, horn heavy band that bring all the skins, mods and punks together under one roof. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

VR Sex
Horseplay

Horses. Can't live with them, can't live without. VR Sex are a provocative and experimental lot who trade in a kind of coagulation of synth punk, doom-rock and post-punk. This is their debut EP previously released on cassette-only and now available on two forms of 12". Oh yeah and it's the guy from Drab Majesty/Marriages making all this racket.

The Distillers
Coral Fang

Full of scathing attitude and razor-sharp hooks, Coral Fang was the major-label debut for Brody Dalle’s sometimes-forgotten band The Distillers in 2003, winning them a whole new fanbase and delivering them their first proper hits. Sadly, it all went downhill for the group afterwards as they split in 2006.

Hüsker Dü
The Living End

1st ever appearance on vinyl for this live album by beloved alt-punkers Hüsker Dü. The Living End captures live performances from 1987, which should probably be enough to entice: I would certainly like to have seen Hüsker Dü live. A very generous 24 songs, including a Ramones cover! Reissued by Music On Vinyl.

The Mekons
The Edge Of The World

The Edge of the World was the 5th album by British/American punks The Mekons. By this time in their career, 1985, they had incorporated country rock into their sound which was quite a shift for them artistically. Nevertheless, the music was good, the lyrics about eating cat food and being stuck talking to drunks were typically imaginative and odd.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Mekons
Fear And Whiskey

Fear and Whiskey was the fourth album by The Mekons. This album saw the British/American punk band take a sharp stylistic turn by morphing into a country rock band. It is thought that this could have been where the alt. country/american genre began. It is widely regarded as their best album. An album of its time, which is also timeless.

Misfits
Walk Among Us

The Misfits inspired thousands of groups with this record. Their debut album 'Walk Among Us' merged B-movie horror imagery with early forms of hardcore punk, shaping a breakneck album of nightmarish yet hugely fun proportions. It features classic songs such as 'Astro Zombies', 'Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?' and the fan-favourite single 'Night of the Living Dead'. The Misfits aren't just a logo to slap on T-shirts after all...

The Fall
1982

A new six-CD box set documenting a pivotal year for Mark E Smith and The Fall, 1982 gathers up the two studio albums they released that year - Hex Enduction Hour, universally acknowledged as one of their very finest, and Room To Live, regarded as a difficult curate’s egg - plus contemporary Peel sessions, their singles for the Kamera label, and live album In A Hole in addition to a show in Melbourne. Also contains replica poster and 4,000 word essay from biographer Daryl Easlea. The two studio albums will be released on limited edition coloured vinyl versions separately. 

The Fall
Room To Live

Room to Live was strange stop in the continuing journey of the Fall. They'd literally only just unleashed the impressive Hex Enduction Hour when Mark E Smith marshalled his troupes for a swift follow up. The speed at which it was recorded and released makes it understandably one of the Fall's most improvised sounding works. Not an easy listen, there's a tough, raw feel to it but it contains at least one future classic in the magnificent rural sprawl of Hard Life in Country. This marble vinyl re-issue is padded out with of-the-era live recordings.

Chastity
Home Made Satan

The Devil just like your mother used to make on the second LP from Brandon Williams’ Chastity project. Home Made Satan is a set of emotional, widescreen rock and emo from the Ontario native. Williams mourns The Current State Of Affairs over agonised instrumentals that recall the likes of American Football and early Death Cab To Cutie.

Television
Adventure

You might think that Television only made one album such is the lordation given to 'Marquee Moon'. This is their second album which, its safe to say, didn't do quite as well at the time both critically and commercially. It has a softer more layered sound which has more of a 60's West Coast vibe and could easily be seen to influence the nascent REM. Verlaine's voice is still as wiry and ragged but this sweeter side of Television should not be overlooked.  Long awaited vinyl re-issue on Rhino.

Joy Division
Closer

Second and final LP by doomed Salford post-punk band Joy Division, this is perhaps most often cited their greatest moment. Recorded shortly before the untimely death of singer Ian Curtis, whose health deteriorated rapidly during the making of this album, and produced by Martin Hannet. Limited edition vinyl reissue.

Crass
Penis Envy

Penis Envy was the third album by legendary anarcho-punks Crass. It was a move away from their early macho punk sound and the subject matter of feminist issues was reflected in the fact that the album had exclusively female vocals. It became notorious by the fact that it was involved in a seizure of copies from Manchester record shops and the band were charged under the Obcene Publications Act. The band eventually won under appeal but it cost them financially and the seeds were sown for their eventual dispansion. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Hussy
Looming

The Hussy a decade old trash-punk band straight outta Madison Wisconsin who have put a slew of their chaotic garage rock out on a variety of labels. Looming is their first album since founding members Bobby Hussy and Heather Hussy were joined by a third wheel the impressively hyphenated Ty-ler Fassnacht. Its of a darker hue than their earlier high octane scuzz with ruminations on divorce, loss addiction and of course these politically turbulent times. 

The Paranoyds
Carnage Bargain

It’s always encouraging to see garage-rock acts who recognise that the secret to greatness in the genre is to not take it too seriously. Carnage Bargain is the debut studio record from L.A.’s The Paranoyds, who rip through ten cuts of joyous, rambunctious and faintly camp new-wave inspired punk. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Mind
Edge Of The Planet

Members of Pleasure Leftists and Homostupids got together to form The Mind. They like to market themselves as weird, and with comparisons to Pere Ubu in that they messily spill out of the post-punk mould musical convention would like to put them in, they are pretty weird. Take a trip to The Edge Of The Planet with them.

Minimal Compact
Creation Is Perfect

Dutch post-punk band Minimal Compact formed in 1980 and were famed for their energy, unpredictability and intensity. Creation is Perfect sees them under the guidance of long time collaborator and post-punk legend Colin Newman of Wire as they re-record some classic tracks, giving extra hue to their original compositions. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Tennis System
Lovesick

As the heaviest offering yet from the shoegaze-tinged rock trio, Tennis System have managed to create a gnarly yet immersive third LP. The Los Angeles outfit have been sliding up and down hazy guitars together for over a decade now - but this is the release, astonishingly created in only 5 days (!), that crystallises their trademark formula.

The Fall
Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never)

The Fall have always been fond of a live album and this goes all the way back to 1980 when they issued 'Totale's Turns' but as always with the Fall there's studio recordings mixed in there as well just to confuse matters.  Here you get a 140 gram re-issue of the original album. A nice way to celebrate Mark E Smith's 60th.

The Fall
The Unutterable

The Unutterable was The Fall's 21st album and was initially released on CD only in 2000. It was long unavailable on vinyl but deservedly now appears on a 2LP set. It's one of the Fall's more celebrated albums from their later years, the usual chaos around the group seemingly inspiring Mark E. Smith to greater forms of creativity. Worth it for the opening two tracks alone including the great Cyber Insekt which sounds like Stereolab in a food mixer. Ideas galore amongst these 15 tracks. There'll never be another group like them.

Minor Threat
Minor Threat

That familiar bald head can only mean one thing... Minor Threat! It's a repress of a compilation which unites the influential punk group's self-titled debut EP and its follow-up ‘In My Eyes’. Unbelievably succinct and vicious hardcore punk, though the whole thing is only 17 minutes it has the weight of something far larger. It even accidentally created a whole lifestyle with ‘Straight Edge’, the band’s clean-livin’ masterpiece.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Working Men's Club
Bad Blood / Suburban Heights

Working Men’s Club are three-piece who take the angular sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television and round off the corners with inspiration from Parquet Courts and The Strokes. Their band name was inspired by where they grew up and their attempts to get into pubs and working men’s clubs as that was the only entertainment around. The band met in Manchester but hail from Yorkshire via Poland and Italy.

LCD Soundsystem
Yeah

Yeah indeed, for this 2003 single from then-fledgling act LCD Soundsystem remains one of the finest things James Murphy has put his name to. Knowing, witty and immensely groovy, the two mixes of ‘Yeah’ here helped to solidify what we’ve now come to recognise as the project’s signature sound. The ‘Crass Version’ mines that rich seam of Killing Joke-style punk-funk while the ebullient ‘Pretentious Version’ steers closer to Arthur Russell’s disco endeavours.

The Durutti Column
LC

The second Durutti Column album, LC, was first released in 1981, and it still carries a certain remarkable feel to it. These expanded reissues present the original album in remastered form, and add in a number of compilation tracks, demos, and other rarities: the exact number of bonus tracks varies depending on whether you fancy CD or LP versions.

Tunnelvision

An angsty post-punk new wave album from a young Blackpool duo who caught the eye of Rob Gretton and Tony Wilson of Factory Records, recorded in 1981 (and mixed by estranged New Order bassist Peter Hook) but never released save for one song on 7”. Now, thanks to Factory Benelux, the original reels (plus a bonus live song recording) have been given a new master and a nice pressing.

Major level Fall, get involved.

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

DZ Deathrays
Positive Rising: Part 1

'Positive Rising: Part 1' is the fourth studio album from Brisbane noisy rockers DZ Deathrays. Not that noisy mind, yes they can scream and shout but there's is quite a streamlined noise rock. 'Positive Rising' offers an altogether more rounded and bigger sound than 'Bloody Lovely', it quite obviously suggests a second part to come soon and a more ambitious future for the band. 

Cold In Berlin
Rituals Of Surrender

Cold In Berlin mix fuzzy, goth-flavoured detuned doom rock with post punk. They're based in London, so I have no idea if they know what the temperature is in Berlin. They claim to be influenced by music released in the 20 year period between 1973 and 1993 along with things outside music such as Asian extreme films, early 20th century European literature, the work of documentary maker Adam Curtis. This all pours into their latest slab of wax, Rituals Of Surrender.

Weird Night
This Is Weird Night

Weird Night were formerly known as White Night. They decided to change their name to Weird Night, naming themselves after the second album they released as White Night and to cause untold confusion in the music world. Their new album, This is Weird Night, sees the Californian trio ripping through some lo-fi punk in chaotic fashion.

Heavy Lungs
Measure

Heavy Lungs were given a helping hand by fellow Bristolians Idles when they released a split single together. Heavy Lungs are fronted by the one and only Danny Nedelko, so really Heavy Lungs gave Idles a helping hand first. It’s a chicken/egg situation I guess. Anyway, here we have a 5-track EP by Heavy Lungs all on their own. It’s called measure and is released via Balley Records which is owned by Idles' Joe Talbot. 

Big Joanie
Sistahs

The hotly-anticipated debut LP from London trio Big Joanie arrives as the first release in Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz’s Daydream Library Series. Sistahs is a great piece of contemporary punk rock. While the instrumentals nod to Breeders, The Ronettes and Joanna Gruesome in equal measure, the lyrics see the band celebrating blackness, femininity and solidarity.

Amyl and the Sniffers
Amyl and the Sniffers

Self-titled debut album from Australian punk newcomers Amyl and the Sniffers, who have been known to hit the road harder than most. You gotta wonder what exactly a person has to do to be worth of the title 'sniffer. I'm sure Amyl has the answers. Features previously released singles ‘Monsoon Rock’, ‘Cup of Destiny’ and ‘Some Mutts (Can’t Be Muzzled)’.

The Teardrop Explodes
Kilimanjaro

Julian Cope is now known as one of English alternative music’s most distinctive auteurs, but his story began with the Liverpudlian band The Teardrop Explodes. This is a heavyweight vinyl re-issue of their 1980 debut album Kilimanjaro, which housed many of their best-known songs, including UK Top Ten hit ‘Reward’. 

MNNQNS
Body Negative

Adrian D’Epinay, lead singer of French experimental rock act MNNQNS, was inspired for the band’s debut album by spending some time in Cardiff. The hybridisation of cultures that he experienced is made clear on Body Negative, an album that defies easy categorisation by its attempts to squeeze so many ideas into its 13 tracks.

Crass
Ten Notes On A Summers Day

Always uncompromising, Crass rounded off their brief career with Ten Notes on a Summers Day, an album which consists of both vocal and instrumental versions of the same tracks. The fact that these songs were performed in a series of avant garde styles rather than their usual thump punk sound didn't endear the album to their fanbase at the time but what a way to sign off.

Big Supermarket
1800

Elusive Australian group Big Supermarket get their 1800 LP released outside of Oz for the first time courtesy of Tough Love (TOY, Ulrika Spacek). This is an unusual and likeable lo-fi post-punk record. The tracks on 1800 often feature the tick-tock grooves of early Parquet Courts, but there is a zaniness to the instrumentation and vocal performances that recalls Ween and Uranium Club.

Bush Tetras

More new music from no wave legends Bush Tetras comes in the form of 7” single, There’s A Hum, on Third Man Records. It follows the release of 2018’s Take The Fall EP (Wharf Cat) which was their first new material in more than a decade. Bush Tetras are now made up from original members, Cynthia Sley, Dee Pop, and Pat Place with Val Opielski on bass replacing Laura Kennedy who sadly died in 2011. 

Malaria!
Compiled 2.0

Important, under-represent new-wave group Malaria! have their Compiled 1981-1984 LP reissued on Moabit Musik. This new edition bulks out the sixteen tracks of Compiled’s first run with four other tunes. Containing their 1982 debut LP Emotion, debut single, early EPs and some assorted other cuts, Compiled runs the gauntlet of early 80’s post-punk styles from a group who used to run with Einstürzende Neubauten. Gudrun Gut got her start in Malaria! you know.

Skull Practitioners
Death Buy EP

Head Skull Practitioner Jason Victor has been more recently known as guitarist in Steve Wynn's reconstituted the Dream Syndicate.  His other band are a more fractured proposition creating propulsive semi improvised skronk which has drawn comparisons to the Gun Club. They are not exactly prolific  - just one hard to find tape so far - but now that In the Red have picked them up I'm sure we'll hear a lot more of them in years to come. We start here with this four song 12".

Suggested Friends
Turtle Taxi

Oh God now we get bands named after phrases we see on the internet every day.  Suggested Friends are a DIY, queer-punk band out of deepest Norfolk who blend their lo-fi credentials with a tongue-in-cheek take on big 80s rock. They self-identify as the sweet spot between Weezer and Abba ...two awful bands I hope you'll agree. Doesn't bode well but maybe they will cancel each other out. The appearance of Emma Kupa (Mammoth Penguins etc) suggests it will be better than all that and that they will be coming to Indietracks in 2020. Mark my words.      

The Raincoats
Odyshape

Odyshape was the second LP from post-punk legends the Raincoats and it really is odd shaped music they made. It's the sound of music plunging headlong into previous unseen areas and at times can be a challenging listen but with moments of pure inspiration such as opener Shouting Out Loud. It was notable for featuring a host of drummers following on from a Spinal Tap-esque drummer crisis. When those drummers were of the calibre of the likes of Robert Wyatt and Charles Hayward then it seems to have been a blessing. Marble vinyl edition remastered from the original tapes.

The Raincoats
The Raincoats (40th Anniversary Edition)

Luckily for record labels everywhere, a lot of good music was released in 1979 so we have plenty of 40th Anniversary re-issues to look forward to this year. The latest is the debut LP from the Raincoats, their spindly surprisingly tuneful art-rock influenced generations of future legends such as Kurt Cobain and Kim Gordon and is now available on marble vinyl, re-mastered from the original tapes with limited edition prints from founding members Gina Birch and Ana Da Silva.

Penny Rimbaud
War & Peace

Back in 2012 the Crass mastermind Penny Rimbaud went into the studio to record a couple of covers. Working with cellist Kate Shortt and bass player Jennifer Maidman, and with ex-Buzzcocks fellow Tony Barber at the mixing desk, Rimbaud took on Bob Dylan’s ‘Masters Of War’ and George Harrison’s ‘Isn’t It A Pity’. He spits furious peace atop sawing strings for the Dylan original while the Harrison take is more tranquil and mournful - it’s not dissimilar to late-period Nick Cave actually. After being stowed away for several years the tracks now make it to a 7” release entitled War & Peace. Out through One Little Indian.

Crass
Christ - The Album

Now even Crass get the luxury boxset treatment. However there's a catch as this was released as a box set first time round  - always ahead of their time this lot. Christ- The Album was their fourth album originally released in 1982 and it contained one disc of new material and a further album containing a live show. The fact that it took a year to record had a profound effect on the band as they realised that such a gestation period would render their political statements dated. Further recordings were made quickly with a more back to basics approach but this is the one they sweated over. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Crass
Yes Sir I Will

The Crass re-issue program continues with Yes Sir I Will. It was recorded in the wake of the Falklands war and was a sustained attack on then prime minister Margaret Thatcher and her government. The fact that the tracks were not separated by grooves made the album sound like one long anarcho-punk blast without pause. Once again totally uncompromising but a vital historical document.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Special Interest
Spiraling

For those that enjoy coarse music made by menacing individuals in dank, musty rooms then look no further than New Orleans' Special Interest. They fuse a punk sensibility with primitive drum machines and arrangements that sound like they've been forge welded together (which wouldn't be surprising, given that one of their members operates 'power tools'). Their debut album 'Spiraling' is a beautiful, joyous ode to feedback, distortion, and rickety electronics. FFO evil. 

The Clash
London Calling (40th Anniversary)

Wow. Forty years since the Clash unleashed their third album London Calling. Iconic not just because of the more varied music contained within and it's legendary title track but just look at that sleeve will you? They haven't gone completely to town with this just a relatively standard LP (admittedly in special sleeve) and CD reissue plus a CD box set they've called London Calling: The Scrapbook which contains a hardback book full of memorabilia, archive material and lyrics.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Lunch Lady
Angel

Angel is the debut album by LA four-piece, Lunch Lady. Their sound is influenced by early ‘80s UK post punk and new wave. The two girls and two guys that make up the band add a dreamy, Californian sun-drenched quality to their otherwise Brit-influenced indie noodling, making for an original meeting of sounds.

The Durutti Column
Live at The Venue

Live At The Venue is a 1982 live album from The Durutti Column, reissued now on their very own imprint. Durutti favourites from return of... , LC and Another Setting are performed with verve and vigour. This vinyl re-release has been fully remastered and given brand new artwork, with a free CD version thrown in too.

Ceremony
In the Spirit World Now

Californian punks, Ceremony, release their sixth album, In The Spirit World Now. It is the band’s first album for Relapse following a two album stint with Matador. The band has evolved yet again. This time they blend furious post-punk and rock with anxiety-ridden lyrics to make and album that is likely to blasting from stereos all summer long.

Various
Of Factory New York

Yup, it is *that* Factory and it's a benefit compilation for Factory legend Michael Shamberg who ran the US office in the 80s and is now very ill with  mitochondrial disease. The compilation contains some rare stuff from the 80s including a live take on New Order's Your Silent Face and the megamix version of Looking From A Hilltop by Section 25 but also recordings from the likes of Ike Yard, Arthur Baker and Konk. A fascinating and eclectic listen no doubt.  

The Stooges
The Stooges

Garage rock legends the Stooges unleashed their raucous self titled debut onto an unsuspecting world in the otherwise flowery and peaceful year of 1969.  it contains several of their classic songs including I Wanna Be Your Dog and No Fun. You'd have thought critics would have flipped but it was met with a lot of disdain at the time being described as 'stupid' and a step back in a music scene that was moving terrifyingly towards progressive rock. Little did they know that it's thrilling raw power (see what I did there?) would be a major influence on punk rock.

Redd Kross
Beyond the Door

Redd Kross released their first album in 1982. Their new album, Beyond The Door, is only their 7th album in all that time. Anyway, quality, not quantity is what’s important. They return for the first time in seven years with an album of hard-edged power pop with Melvins drummer, Dale Crover, recording with them for the first time. Fellow Melvins, Geré Fennelly and Buzz Osborne guest, with Anna Waronker from That Dog and current Red Hot Chilli Peppers guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer also putting in appearances.

Tropical Fuck Storm
Braindrops

The Drones were on hiatus but are now officially over. Founding member, Gareth Liddiard and his musical and life partner Fiona Kitschin are carrying on though. They’re rocking out with a new-found purpose in Tropical Fuck Storm. Braindrops is the band’s second album in 18 months, following on from A Laughing Death In Meatspace. Doc At The Radar Station by Captain Beefheart was a big influence on this album, so expect some weird, wonky and wonderful noise.

The Teardrop Explodes
Wilder

The glittering but short-lived career of The Teardrop Explodes came to an end with 1981’s Wilder, only the second album completed by Julian Cope and co. before they disintegrated. More complex and moodier than its predecessor, reliant on loops and synths rather than guitars, it now gets a heavyweight vinyl re-issue. 

Heavy Rapids
Cash In Hand EP

Following a slew of singles and support slots with the likes of Cabbage and Starcrawler over the last couple of years, English indie act Heavy Rapids deliver their first ever EP. With four tracks , featuring the excellent ‘Hurricane E’, Cash In Hand will hopefully see the Glaswegian quartet over the top and into the mainstream.

The Slits
Cut

It is 40 years since the Slits unleashed Cut their debut and most well known album. Their early ferocious live performances were reigned in expertly by producer Dennis Bovell and the band tempered their DIY punk enthusiasm with dub and world music influences. The result is an innovative album which matches Ari Up's yelps with Viv Albertine's scratchy discordant guitar runs and Budgie's off kilter dub-influenced drumming. It influenced... well.. everyone particularly the later riot grrl and DIY punk scenes.

Proto Idiot
Find Out For Themselves

‘Imagine if Thin Lizzy did a Wire covers set with Nick Lowe on bass’. That’s how loveable rascals Proto Idiot introduce their new LP Find Out For Themselves. They’re not wrong you know - this Mancunian art-garage rabble have the riffage, the angularity and the angst to back up those claims. Find Out For Themselves finds Proto Idiot back on Bad Paintings (Xiu Xiu, The Wedding Present) after issuing their last album through Slovenly.

Dome
Dome 3

After Wire temporarily called it quits in 1980 Graham Lewis and Bruce Gilbert decided that, actually, they still quite enjoyed making music together. However, the stuff they then started doing in Dome was pretty far removed from the serrated, angular punk they’d dealt out in their previous band. While still part of the post-punk continuum, records like Dome's third LP Dome 3 (1981) have more in common with the dubwise experimentation of Brian Eno & David Byrne’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts - another album that came out in 1981. This new Editions Mego pressing of Dome 3 gives the record new artwork an a remastering job from Rashad Becker.

Spike Fuck
The Smackwave EP

Spike Fuck. Now that’s how you name a band. Their music’s good too - at least, 2016’s The Smackwave EP certainly is. This is a set of hazed rock ‘n’ roll tracks that are either lo-hi-fi or hi-lo-fi depending on where you stand. Lou Reed, Television and Ezra Furman are all invoked. No wonder that Partisan Records have decided to snap up The Smackwave for its first vinyl edition. This pressing contains ‘Body By Crystal’, a track that didn’t appear on the 2016 version.

IDLES
Joy as an Act of Resistance

Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly good tunes in here. ‘Danny Nedelko’ will be a massive festival song for years to come, and I’m absolutely fine with that.

Fontaines D.C.
Dogrel

I've never heard of them. Seriously, I've never heard of them. They made four hotly received double A-side singles last year which I never knew about and got airplay on Steve Lamacq (which I never heard) and have played sold out shows across Europe which I never attended. Turns out they play snotty indie/post-punk with vocals that seem to sit somewhere between Mark E. Smith and Cathal Coughlan. But what do I know?  

The Fall
458489 A Sides

It's taken Beggars some time to start with the Fall re-issue programme but here it is and it starts with the perfect introduction to the Fall for the faint hearted. 458489 A Sides was how I got into the Fall myself as it contains all their singles from the Brix Smith era generally seen as their most user friendly period. Of course this is only a slither of the whole story ...but if you have to start somewhere.... 

Gauche
A People's History of Gauche

Washington D.C. band Gauche make the move to prestigious indie imprint Merge for their latest album. A People’s History of Gauche also saw the band work with outsiders for the first time on production, with Parquet Courts’ Austin Brown involved with this collection socially and politically on-point material. 

Thee Oh Sees
The Cool Death of Island Raiders

Thee Oh Sees reissue thee 2006 LP(ee) The Cool Death Of Island Raiders. While John Dwyer et al are garage-punk royalty nowadays, it appears that back in the mid-2000’s they were more interested in mucking about with drones than in crafting short blasts of scuzz-rock. While the bones of the band’s later style is apparent in the freak-folk tracks here (think Animal Collective-meets-Jay Reatard) there is also a fair whack of The Flaming Lips to The Cool Death Of Island Raiders.

FIDLAR
Almost Free

LA noiseniks, FIDLAR, take on the frustrations and anxieties in life - the false, the tragedies, and being woke (yes, I said it). They turn the bad and wrong into pure unadulterated visceral joy, exploring new territory whilst staying true to their core sound, with their third album, Almost Free. LP and CD on Mom & Pop Records.

Sleaford Mods
Sleaford Mods EP

First new music from Sleaford Mods since 2017's English Tapas and as is their wont it's a five track EP ahead of a promised new LP next March. A bunch of things to tie you over all about people's anger with the political system and the slow descent into slanging matches. Always on the ball it's nice to have them back. They may look rough and tough and snarly but they are lovely lads really. Soft as puppies.

Bikini Kill
The Singles

Pitchfork said that The Singles by Bikini Kill defined the band. This description writer would like to take that a little further and suggest that it defined the Riot Grrrl sound. The band were fronted by head Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Features classics such as Rebel Girl and New Radio - the latter being a collaboration with proto Riot Grrrl, Joan Jett. LP and CD on Bikini Kill Records.

The Ex
27 Passports

The Ex have made about a billion albums starting in 1979 and still going strong. On each album they start with a blank canvas so you are never sure what you are going to get. This time it seems that that have created a trance-like opus that has been influenced by trips to Africa creating an infectious groove laden sound. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy prog vibe (see sleeve).   

Wire
Chairs Missing

Wire's second album has now, belatedly, got the re-issue treatment. 'Chairs Missing' expanded the short, sharp art-rock of their debut 'Pink Flag' into something more rounded and experimental, particularly in terms of their song structure. The CD editions come with bonus discs of so many demos that you won't know what to do with them.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Godflesh
Post Self

Godflesh are known as an industrial metal band, but their 8th album, Post-Self, sees them move away from metal and experiment with industrial and post-punk sounds, exploring what inspired them in the first place. Lyrically the album deals with anxiety and depression, fear, mortality and paternal and maternal relationships.

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
Feed The Rats

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are the extra-dense grouping of members of such heavy North-East bands as Khunnt and Blown Out. They play sludged-up psych-rock that just hammers and hammers away at the listener with noisy riffs until you fall over. Feed The Rats is a full-length album with just three tracks, allowing the jams to expand to vast proportions. On Rocket Recordings.

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The Fall follow up their most recent album Sub Lingual Tablet with this EP. Wise Ol’ Man (is that supposed to be Mark E. Smith?) mixes all-new tracks with a smattering of remixes, instrumentals and edits, as well as a reversioning of old festive favourite ‘No Xmas For John Quays’. 7 tracks in all. Out on the Cherry Red label.
