Cabbage
Young, Dumb And Full Of...

Cabbage are a group of five young white men. The band has a horrible name their album has a horrible title and a horrible cover. The music on the album sounds a bit like The Fall, and also a bit like Slaves...view item »

The Coathangers
Live

Atlanta, Georgia garage punk three-piece The Coathangers have done their best to capture the essence of their live energy in the studio over five albums. However, there’s nothing like ‘live’ for that truly visceral and magical experience so the band decided to release a blisterin...view item »

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 ...view item »

Vitamin X
Age Of Paranoia

So many bands, trends and scenes have come and gone since Vitamin X first surfaced in the late-90s, but somehow the Amsterdam punx have managed to outlast them all. This is probably something to do with an ever-burning fire in their bellies - Age Of Paranoia’s lead single ‘Modern Man’ contains the spun...view item »

The Just Measurers
Flagellation

There was only ever 300 copies of Flagellation, the one and only LP by The Just Measurers, pressed back in 1983, so it’s no wonder that this really weird DIY punk record has recently been changing hands for the best part of 500 notes. Emotional Response saw fit to reissue the LP, so now you ...view item »

Robert Storey
Come Up And Hear My Etchings

Compilation of songs from underground London musician Robert Storey. Includes tracks released between 1986 and 2016 as Orchestre Murphy, Nobodies, and more. His handle on harmony and vocal delivery recall some of Scott Walker's tamer moments as a solo artist....view item »

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG. Also we are...view item »

Fucked Up
High Rise

Hardcore Canadian punks, Fucked Up, have a new album on the way which will be released by Merge. To whet their fans whistles in anticipation of this they have recorded a 7”  single on Tankcrimes containing High Rise, a cover of a song by The Trainspotters and Tower On Time, a Jade Hairpins...view item »

Shudder To Think
Ten Spot

Let's hope this re-issue of Shudder to Think's debut album has been re-mastered. Their original albums though musically exceptional suffer from the kind of quiet '90s mastering that suggests the record was played out of some speakers and recorded onto a tape recorder. Drums high enough in the mix to make you feel you are listening to the band ou...view item »

Terry
8 Girls

Terry contain four musicians with serious pedigree: members play in Total Control, Mick Harvey Band, School of Radiant Living, Russell Street Bombings and more besides). For Terry, they bring out an indie pop that is plenty of fun but takes no b...view item »

The Damned
Stiff Singles 1976-1977

The Damned are punk legends, and Stiff are the legendary punk label that enabled them to become punk legends, so really this is the a perfect compilation for one of punk’s great singles bands. Stiff Singles 1976 - 1977...view item »

Nexda
Words & Numbers

Hailing from Haarlem near Amsterdam, Dutch post-punk band Nexda offer up an alternative to the post-punk we know and love. Their experimentation and embracing of the DIY ethos saw them use sax, organ, drums they’d made themselves, bits of metal and their voices to make music which was heavy ...view item »

Decisions
Decisions

Wharf Cat Records (Palberta, Big French) drop the opening salvo from NYC punk band Decisions. The group rail against gentrification, yuppies, creeps and more on this charged 7”. They do so with a fire that recalls the abstract hardcore of Show Me The Body ...view item »

Public Image Limited
This Is PiL

On asking whether the new PIL album was due this week I was met with a chorus of disapproval from colleagues who had heard and been horrified by the (now mysteriously missing) promo CD. Yet, the reviews of this first...view item »

Bad Times
Streets Of Iron

Bad Times were one of Jay Reatard’s early groups, and their only record stands as a self-titled debut LP that dropped in 2001. A 2002 reissue combined that album with the band’s only live show - an opening slot for Guitar Wolf - but this repress from Goner restores t...view item »

LTD
LTD

Canadian garage legend King Khan and Michigan punk Sean Wood (The Spits) have formed what has proved to be a mind-blowing double act, Louder Than Death, LTD for short. Inspired by sci-fi, the duo cook up some pretty classic sounding dumb-ass punk rock. There&rsq...view item »

Arndales
Shops

Brilliant. These former members of Country Teasers, Art Brut, Collapsed Lung and Thrilled Skinny have got together over a love (or hatred) of retail jargon with songs inspired by the gobbledegook that is spouted in their workplaces. Should be fun, and musically it would appear ...view item »

Beta Blockers
Stiff Prescription

Extremely good noisy psych-punk by people who are both running away from you and running right for you. Thrashing at a distance, Beta Blockers make a racket real fast and without warning. Each bit of it is going to grate your ears into pieces and that’s all I really have to say about it. Also it rules. It’s no surprise a band...view item »

Boots For Dancing
The Undisco Kidds

Boots For Dancing are the missing link between Jozef K and Modern Romance (bear with me) i.e the band Franz Ferdinand wish they were. This amazing piece of lost history fills in a much needed gap in Scottish pop history - where ...view item »


Outer Himalayan Presents

This collaborative release between Dark Entries and Sacred Bones sees them chronicling the output of British post-punk imprint Outer Himmalayan Records. Active in the late 70s and early 80s, the label’s 7” releases of bands The Magits, Soft Drinks an...view item »

Instant Music
Instant Music

Kraftwerk inspired poppy post-punk from 80s Munich. Instant Music managed to do what so many Kraftwerk imitators failed to do, and made six fun (!) robotic tracks, including one where washing machine instructions are read out over samples of the machine in questions. Remaster released on ...view item »

Amyl and the Sniffers
Big Attraction & Giddy Up

Punk’s not dead, and it will never die, and that’s because of Australia. Sorry - I meant it’s because of Australian groups. Groups like Amyl and the Sniffers. The two EPs bundled together here were each written and recorded in a matter of seconds, and that’s no bad thing. Tracks like ‘Blowj...view item »

Archie and The Bunkers
Songs From The Lodge

Sibling duo Archie And The Bunkers drop their second LP of organ-billy fun. With one brother on the organ and the other on drums, the pair make a pretty basic racket on Songs From The Lodge, but they do it nicely. Sort of like The Ramones at a funfair. ‘Laura’, unfortunately, is not a ...view item »

Uranium Club
Live At Acri Taun

Uranium Club take Italy! The fast and hard Minneapolitans (really? apparently) with the(e) Oh Sees co-sign thrill Fidenza with forty minutes of tight post-punk. You'll wish you'd been there, and maybe if you buy this you can be! I have personally missed their Leeds show and I am FILLED with r...view item »

The Damned
Evil Spirits

My goodness this is actually a new the Damned record. They even raised so much money on Pledge that they could get Bowie sidekick Tony Visconti to produce it. As the sleeve says it features original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible and the record harks back to their original 1976 sound but also lyrically reflects our cur...view item »

Girls Names
Stains on Silence

It looked like Girls Names were really onto something a few years ago with their dark swirling Echo & the Bunnymen style rock but then their drummer left and that was followed by a crisis of confidence about the recordings that have turned into 'Stains of Silence'. However, re-grouped, refreshed the band have re...view item »

Bush Tetras
Take The Fall

New York post punk four-piece Bush Tetras are back, a full 38 years after their classic debut single Too Many Creeps. They haven’t been the most prolific of bands, with new album Take The Fall being only their fourth in all that time. The 2018 incarnation of the band sees original bass player Laura Kennedy replaced by Val ...view item »

Ought
Once More With Feeling

When Ought first appeared on Constellation this year, they looked like a rough fit: a conventional, workmanlike band uncomfortably sitting next to some of the greatest experimental visionaries in contemporary music. Seeing them alongside polemic and often political acts such as Jerusalem In My Heart, ...view item »

Soft Kill
Savior

If you ever feel like you could do with some sad reading you could do worse than the press release for Soft Kill's Saviour. Even without reading it there is obviously sadness behind this music. Post-punk that's as down as the genre's ever been, with vocals whose distance is only amplified by being hidd...view item »

Robocobra Quartet
Plays Hard To Get

The group once described by Drowned In Sound as ‘Fugazi meets Mingus’ make an interesting racket on thei...view item »

Young Marble Giants
Colossal Youth

Excitement abounds this week as my quest to restock, revisit and relive some revelatory Peel discoveries of yesteryear comes in the form of Domino's reissue (is that enough re's for you?) of Young Marble Giants: "Colossal Youth". A band definitely of their time but still of great relevance today. For me the sound of YMG summons up listen...view item »

The Messthetics
The Messthetics

What happens when you take the rhythm section out of Fugazi and add a jazz guy? Something like the Messthetics I imagine.  Here's nine songs they recorded in their practice space, semi structured with lots of room for improvisation. Simple guitar, bass, drums set up explored by some of the finest players in the...view item »

Bad Breeding
Abandonment

Punk, like all musics, has as much bad stuff as good stuff. So much that it can become hard to tell which is which. However, sometimes you hear a record and it’s obviously, undeniably excellent. Bad Breeding’s ...view item »


Burning Britain: A Story Of Independent UK Punk 1980 - 1983

Basically the story of how punk went shit when the likes of the Sex Pistols were replaced by the likes of the Toy Dolls. Incredible to think punk staggered on until 1983 but here is how it happened showcased acres of rare tracks from the era. These Cherry Red nostalgia comps are always great value though and a p...view item »

Pere Ubu
Les Haricots Sont Pas Salés 1987-1991

This is the third and final vinyl boxset compiling remastered editions of the Cleveland veterans’ earlier albums. 1988’s The Tenement Year is a particularly solid set of tunes, less spiky and more reflectively mature than earlier work, boasting the clever yet heart-wrenching We Have the Technology. Follow-up Cloudland moves even more...view item »

ILL
We Are Ill

We Are Ill. Aren’t we all, eh? Anyway, this rabble are from Manchester and their LP is being released by Box Records (Gnod, Bong...view item »

Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures

Debut album by Salford post-punkers Joy Division. Recorded in April 1979, Martin Hannet's unique production techniques and Ian Curtis's doomed lyrics and monotone vocal lend the album a downbeat greatness that has been often emulated yet rarely surpassed. One of only two albums recorded by the band before Curtis's tragic suicide in 1980. ...view item »

FACS
Negative Houses

Scattering the ashes of the moody Disappears contingent into a new band, FACS will of course use their dejected, mundane rock to quietly upset you. I’ll level with you: this goth boy band is pretty much just Disappears redux, minus one Damon Carruesco, who left the band and all the gloom endearing it behind. What you’re hearing in &l...view item »


Typical Girls Volume 2

Not content with one volume highlighting bands fronted by women, Emotional Response have unleashed another batch of mainly unknown artists throughout the world -- all of which pretty angry about one thing or another. Suss C*nts (warning: a lot of the names are quite rude) stand out early doors with a furious blast of punk pop fun which crucially...view item »

Efrim Manuel Menuck
Pissing Stars

After fully coming through on a long-term promise to deliver “a joyous noise” to a Godspeed You! Black Emperor record in the triumphant, communal, and all-loving ‘Luciferian Towers’, Montreal rock ‘n’ roller Efrim Manuel Menuck returns to the pits of doom. Th...view item »

The Fall
White Lightning

I've recently found myself drawn to everything 'Fall', and older Fall records are either overly expensive or totally unobtainable. White Lightning features hard-to-find tracks from the 70s, 80s, 90s and the 00s, so you get to experience Mark E. Smith's startling and snarly vocal work in almost every decade of his caree...view item »

Drahla
Third Article

One sided 12" on Blank Ad, so...every track is an A side. Produced by MJ of Hookworms fame at the newly resurrected Suburban Home in Leeds, this is proper ace post-punk from a very promising outfit. Big time echoes of Sonic Youth with the noisy/melodic guitar work and Kim Gordon-esque spoken wor...view item »

Richard Hell & The Voidoids
Blank Generation

Ssleeping Desiress
Ssleeping Desiress

Here’s the self-titled debut LP of Ssleeping Desiress, aka San Francisco coldwave artist and snake Gabriel Ramos. The album follows a 7” released in 2012, so this has been some time coming. Solid pastiche production rounds off the sinister tunes, with rumbling bass, sharp guitars, tinny drum machines and the gaudy, o...view item »

Death And The Maiden
Wisteria

A brand new nine-track release from Death and the Maiden called Wisteria. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and will blow you away with its ability to extend your already heightened levels of anxiety from listening to their previous stuff. Expect weird (but kinda cool, I guess) trance-pop-indie-punk. ...view item »

Pill
The Dull Tools Tapes

Dull Tools, the label run by Parquet Courts's resident dilettante Andrew Savage, tends towards deceptively complex and subversive art-punk. Pill...view item »


Typical Girls Volume Three

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 ...view item »


Typical Girls Volume Four

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 ...view item »

The Fall
The Wonderful And Frightening Escape Route To The Fall

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! The Wonderful and Frightening Escape Route of The Fall gathered together two singles and an EP, and was first released in 1984. The last Fall album with a double drummer line-up by the way. This LP reissue...view item »

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.  ...view item »

Häxxan
The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II

Riff rock for dry ice psychlords. Tel Aviv's HÄXXAN ('chasan') offer a slab of weighty, wandering rock music for fans of both the band Fuzz and the sonic tool fuzz. The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II, which is a bad album name, is that warbling wah sound pushed forward w...view item »

Hollywood Sinners
Khöme Kakkä

Garage-punk, eh. Never fails. The latest to join the time-honoured tradition of snotty youngsters thumping tubbs and shredding licks are Spanish rockers Hollywood Sinners. But … what’s that you say? They’ve been going since 2002? All three of the band’s members are nearing middle-age? Ahh well, I guess t...view item »

Interrobang‽
Interrobang‽

Interrobang are the agit pop project of former Chumbawamba member Dunstan Bruce alongside with Harry Hamer also formerly of Chumbawamba and ex-Regular Fries guitarist Stephen Griffin. They make vicious pop punk full of social and political commentary and wry asides. Taking the ideas and eth...view item »

Total Control
Henge Beat

As loose as a term post-punk is, it almost risks pigeonholing Total Control's sound, they are almost in a world of their own. You would be hard struggling to find a more refreshing record than this in the past few years and in terms of debut albums this has to be up there with Australia's best. Als...view item »

The Cavemen
The Cavemen

The eponymous debut from New Zealand natives who moved themselves to London, The Cavemen is a short sharp burst of joyously childish and catchy punk rock. Song subjects range, as you can probably imagine, from drug abuse to masturbation and general fast-living debauchery. Blood red coloured vinyl LP and CD, reissued on Dirty Wat...view item »

The Cavemen
Nuke Earth

Nuke Earth is the new album by New Zealand garage punk band The Cavemen. Their name gives a few clues about their music - it’s primal, visceral rock ‘n’ roll for beer-fuelled nights. Guaranteed to cure what ails ya, if what ails ya is lack of vintage punk rock. LP and CD on Slovenly....view item »

Total Control
Laughing At The System

Laughing At The System is the first music from Melbourne’s Total Control since their second LP, Typical System in 2014. The band are essentially a post-punk band influenced by the likes of Joy Division, but throw a bit of ‘80s electro in the mix too. The band don’t necessarily always tour with the full...view item »

Lungfish
A.C.R. 1999

Lungfish are a band who never really fit into any kind of “scene”. Locking into their sensuous repeato grooves with pagan psych vibes over which Dan Higgs...view item »

Simply Saucer
Cyborgs Revisited

If you have a fetish for going back in time an unearthing the lost treasures of yesteryear (Ok, somebody does all the work for us, we just buy it) then jump on this. You've seen the reviews: Early Pink Floyd meets the Stooges with some Hendrix guitar and Sun Ra electro. That's for the mind to decipher, I let the ears do the work. This is guita...view item »

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.  ...view item »

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 critica...view item »

Slow Riot
Voyeur / Burn In The City

The latest single from Irish band Slow Riot sees them bringing forth two more tracks of moody-but-groovy post-punk. Preoccupations, Eagulls and Savages have all been mentioned in the same breath as the Limerick four-piece, and it’s easy to see why. ‘Voyeur’ is ...view item »

Protomartyr
Relatives In Descent

Beginning with the best thing I've heard since the last Ought album, Protomartyr from the get go make a better case for showcasing their talents than they did on 2014s lacklustre "Under Color of Official Right". 'A Private Understanding' is indeed the best possible way to announce that you've signed to Domino. A slice...view item »

Camberwell Now
The EP Collection

Ocean-inspired weirdery from London's Charles Hayward (The Heat) and an ensemble of friends, including a former BBC sound engineer and a ukulele player. Compiled from a selection of EPs originally released in the late 1980s, this vinyl is just one of The Heat / Camberwell Now's quirky recordings to enjoy a reissue on Modern Classics this year....view item »

The Ex
27 Passports

I would be remiss to leave the phrase “anarcho-punk” out of a review of the The Ex. But I don’t know how useful it is. Knowing The Ex are anarchists is interesting, it might even mean you respect them. Punk isn’t be too helpful here either. They are punk, this is punk, but to leave it at that would almost be insultingly r...view item »

Satan's Satyrs
Wild Beyond Belief

This lot Satan’s Satyrs haven’t been going for long but they’ve been raising eyebrows with their brand of unhinged and pounding biker sludge on a series of limited EPs and now they finally unleash their debut LP ‘Wild Beyond Belief!’ with a sleeve which looks recalls the likes of ‘...view item »

Charles Hayward
Smell Of Metal

New 2x12" EP here by ex-This Heat man Charles Hayward, with two new tracks on the first disc and remixes on the second. On side A, 'Lopside' mixes live-sounding drum breaks with a single high-pitched synth chord which chimes out at regular intervals. As the piece progresses the drums are tampered with, cut up and ...view item »

No Babies
Someone To Watch Over Me

Belligerent thrashers, listen up: it’s about to get real messy. No Babies, no wave and no mercy; it all amounts to ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’, a record of discordant punk delivered unto us via skronk. The free jazz and nails-against-wall shredding synergise on this record to birth a record of devilled energy and catastrophic po...view item »

Wire
154

This is Wire's third album and was an icy example of the sort of dark art rock that was around at the time. There was however something special about Wire. They never were content to sit still and so each album is a development on the last. Certainly this is one of their albums that could be considered a masterpiece. Now comes w...view item »

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...view item »

Wire
Pink Flag

Like many great albums of yesteryear, Wire’s debut, Pink Flag did very little commercially at the time of its release in 1977. It has fortunately and rightly since been awarded ‘classic’ status by fans and critics alike. Elastica also owe this album a debt of gratitude, check out Three Girl Rhu...view item »

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, ...view item »

Nocturnal Projections
Inmates In Images

Brilliant but short-lived New Zealand legends Nocturnal Projections barely released an album in their lifetime (their studio recordings have been collected elsewhere as 'Complete Studio Recordings') so it's nice to see a release of these live recordings. Direct from the board, they showcase the talents of a band who, had they co...view item »

Nocturnal Projections
Complete Studio Recordings

Right, this is absolutely essential. Nocturnal Projections were the original post punk band of brothers Graeme and Peter Jeffries (This Kind of Punishment/The Cake Kitchen/solo) and though they never released an album in their lifetime, they deserve to be placed alongside post-punk legends such ...view item »

Flat Worms

Ice Baths
Ice Baths

Brrr! London label Blank Editions, associated with all sorts from Thurston Moore to Theo Alexander, take a chilly plunge with the self-titled debut from Ice Baths. This one seems to be about aggressive, jangly neo-eighties post-punk, rather gritty and lo-fi on record too. Brooding lyrics are dis...view item »

CTMF
Something's Missing Inside / Walking On The Water

The 145,294th release from Billy Childish sees punk’s prince regent offer up a new version of 'Something's Missing Inside', a track from his recent CTMF LP Something’s Missing Inside. Comes backed with a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Walking On The Wat...view item »

A Certain Ratio
I'd Like To See You Again

I’d Like To See You Again was the 4th album by Manchester post-punk band A Certain Ratio, or ACR to their friends. It was originally released on the notorious Factory Records label in 1982. It was the first album with co-vocalist Martha Tilston. This reissue comes via Mute and is available...view item »

Your Food
Poke It With a Stick

Fascinating. Here is a re-issue of these Louisville legends who once blew the mind of the then 11 year old Britt Walford (Slint). They were a crazed raggle- taggle collective sonically out of kilter with the then thriving hardcore scene with songs that referenced ESG and Bush Tetras. They didn't...view item »

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

Six years on from debut LP and d-beat/anarcho-punk supergroup Split Cranium serve up the sophomore. Given that the band features members of Converge, Circle, Mammifer and many more, I’m The Devil And I’m Ok was never going to go in with a soft touch. What&rs...view item »

The Birthday Party
Junkyard

Well it’s good to see this back on vinyl! This deluxe reissue not only has the entire LP but also a bonus 7” and a CD with all the tracks from both records. Nice! It probably doesn’t need a lot of introducing but I’ll jump at an opportunity to say some nice things ...view item »

The Buttertones
Midnight In A Moonless Dream

Innovative Leisure may be best-known for their more beat-orientated output - BADBADNOTGOOD, Nosaj Thing etc. - but there is some fire in the belly of the LA label too. This is exemplified by The Buttertones, a ramshackle rabble who bear the influence of bands like The Gu...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Eligible Bachelors (Deluxe Edition)

The third Monochrome Set LP, 'Eligible Bachelors', is overlooked in terms of their more renowned previous work, but it is just as good as their first two albums. It includes many witty indie pop classics such as "Jet Set Junta” and "The Ruling Class". Released on coloured vinyl by Optic Nerve, included here is a poster and two bonus tracks...view item »

The Modern Lovers

If you are looking for the missing link in between the Velvet Underground and the Ramones, buy this record. There were a few essential bands from this time period - the NY Dolls, the Dictators and ...view item »

The Clash
London Calling

London Calling was the third album by The Clash and was originally released in 1979. It is widely regarded as the band’s greatest moment and one of the best albums to ever be committed to tape. It comprises a range of styles from punk to reggae and ska to rockabilly and dealt with many issues of the day such as un...view item »

Dwarves
Are Young and Good Looking

Not only is it their most professional (you can hear their evolution from garage punk) but it's also track by track the most complete. There's less of an all out brute force sound to this one. There is no one Dwarves release that's a must-have. All are pretty good in their own right (though don't start with "Lick It"). This is as good as any pla...view item »


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 ...view item »

Heavy Metal
The Nietzschean Supermen Of Dustbin Rock

Heavy Metal are a weirdo punk band from Berlin. Quite hard to put a finger on their sound but I’m thinking Truman’s Water meets Jilted John. And odd mix, I know. There’s a real plethora of sounds on The Nietzschean Supermen Of Dustbin Rock. Lyric...view item »

Giuda
Rock N Roll Music

Just so they didn’t accidentally filter out any of the natural raw power of their stage performance, Italian rock band Giuda recorded their latest aptly named single, Rock ‘N’ Roll Music, live. The band have one foot in the ‘70s classic rock camp, whilst the other is firmly rooted in UK punk. If you like ...view item »

The Monochrome Set
1979-1985: Complete Recordings

The Monochrome Set are one those largely unknown but hugely influential British bands. Their post-punk/indie-pop/art-rock sound has been an influence on the likes of The Smiths, Blur and Franz Ferdinand. The groups leader, Bid, claims that a diet of 17th century poetry and Leadb...view item »

Ramones
End Of The Century

Drafting in Phil Spector to produce the fifth Ramones album seemed like an odd move in 1980, even considering da brudders’ 60s pop obsessions. It was an expensive and unpleasant recording experience, but paid dividends. The stomping Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio?, Rock 'n' Roll High School and the Ro...view item »

Septic Tank
Rotting

Band: Septic Tank. Album: Rotting. What else could it be but high-speed angry hardcore punk!?! Septic Tank are in fact 90’s veterans, with members of Cathedral and Repulsion among their numbers. They now return to bludgeon 2018 with eighteen tracks of entropic fer...view item »

Iceage
Beyondless

Posh punks Iceage continue their champagne toasts to Nick Cave and fellow goth brooders with Beyondless. Further deconstructing the form of their early hardcore tunes, they continue to ramble their way through their new aesthetic style, this time sharing runtime with Sky Ferreir...view item »

Protomartyr
The Agent Intellect
