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.

Sleaford Mods
Eton Alive

The fifth studio album from never-knowingly-short-of-a-pun duo Sleaford Mods is on their own new 'Extreme Eating' label following a relatively brief sojourn with Rough Trade. Eton Alive is an aptly-titled affair in a year when which the actions of certain Old Etonians are in real danger of tearing the United Kingdom apart. Be assured that Sleaford Mods will have plenty to say on the subject of Brexit, austerity, and pretty much everything else related to the "shit pipe of this tatty civilisation" - all splurted out in their usual inimitable rattle-and-rant style.

The Fall
The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall (Expanded Edition)

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! Here we have a deluxe double pack that combines the (relatively) ‘mainstream’ The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall with The Wonderful and Frightening Escape Route of The Fall. Bargainous reissue goodness.

Cable Ties
Far Enough

Melbourne's fierce and distortive three-piece continue their ascension the politically-focussed 'Far Enough'. The 8 track record, including bangers such as 'Tell Them Where To Go' and 'Sandcastles', is characterised by its pulsating rhythms and 70s hard rock influences. Eyebrow-raising stuff from the trio. 

Neutrals
Kebab Disco

Nice to see the return of Emotional Response after a bit of a break. Their latest slab o' wax is by Neutrals who, although they reside in Bay Area San Francisco, have a Scottish singer in Allan McNaughton. He reminisces about his upbringing on a song suite which combines art-punk, '70s power-pop and '80s indie-pop influences.

Flat Worms
Antarctica

Flat Worms return with their third album in around four years, and on Antarctica, the group’s already punishing sound continues to get harsher and more brutal. Recorded in just six days with the help of Ty Segall and Steve Albini, it seeks to provide bleak yet darkly humorous commentary upon the state of the world today. 

Josef K
The Only Fun In Town

'The Only Fun In Town' is the first, last, and only album from Scottish post-punkers Josef K. It's an album that gets straight to the point, clocking in at under half an hour. It's angular and sharp, with screeching guitars and fizzy drums all underpinned by Paul Haig's yelpy, tremulous vocals. Reissued on lovely clear vinyl by Les Disques du Crepuscule.

OCS
Live In San Francisco

OCS. Oh Sees. Thee Oh Sees. All the same thing. This is OCS Live In San Francisco. This was originally released as a very limited 4LP set. Now we have a 2LP version which will be much easier to get your hands on. It is released via Rock Is Hell, a label which released some early stuff by Thee Oh Sees. 2LP on Rock Is Hell limited to 1700 copies.

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.

John Paul
Subjects

An associate of the iconic Sleaford Mods before embarking on his own career a few years back, John Paul releases his second solo record on Harbinger Sound. More abrasive than previous album No Filter and produced by UK scene veteran Ratman, Subjects provides a wry, scathing insight into Britain’s decaying society and infrastructure. 

Es
Less Of Everything

Four years after their debut EP Object Relations comes the first full-length album from the immensely promising London-based DIY four-piece Es. Dealing in dark, mutated synth-punk, Less of Everything was recorded last summer after the band were briefly split between England and Scotland, and should be one of 2020’s most exciting debuts.

Vivien Goldman
Launderette

Laundrette by musician, journalist and academic Vivien Goldman is a classic of post-punk and reggae fusion. It was recorded by Adrian Sherwood in 1981. John Lydon, then of Public Image Limited along with bandmate Keith Levene also helped with the recording which took place in PiL’s studio. Goldman’s high voice was anchored by a heavy bass line played by George Oban of Aswad. This is the first ever reissue.

Pere Ubu
By Order Of Mayor Pawlicki (Live In Jarocin)

By Order Of Mayor Pawlicki (Live In Jarocin) by Pere Ubu captures the band on a troubled tour of Poland in 2017. Despite the struggles with schedules and failing equipment, the band played a storming set of material plucked from, what many would say was, their classic period, 1975-1982. It covers the time when they released songs such as Final Solution and classic albums such as The Modern Dance and Dub Housing.

March
Set Loose

Dutch/Belgian four-piece March bestow upon us their second studio album. A utilitarian collection of 11 loud and raw tracks, Set Loose concerns the primal and undying need to turn up the volume and make some righteous noise and, as ever, the star attraction is lead singer Fleur’s raging vocals.

The Fall
Hex Enduction Hour

Arguably the single greatest album in The Fall’s 41 year history, 1982’s Hex Enduction Hour documents Mark E. Smith at the peak of his powers, fronting the most powerful lineup of the band. Steve Hanley’s bass is generally to the fore, flanked by guitarists Craig Scanlon and Marc Riley, and crucially featuring the twin drums of Paul Hanley and Karl Burns. At this point MES had a knack for combining kitchen-sink realism with the uncanny and supernatural, refracted through a Burroughs-esque prism. Recorded in a draughty cinema in Hitchin and a cave in Reykjavík, the album is bombastic, abstract, abrasive, hilarious, belligerent and utterly exhilarating. The original crammed an hour of music onto a single LP, but this remastered Superior Viaduct reissue achieves much better sound quality than letting it sprawl over a double. If you’re looking for a way in to a potentially bewildering discography, start here!

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.

Powerplant
A Spine / Evidence

Having left the bedroom and grown into a full band Powerplant release A Spine / Evidence - a five track EP that sees them still mining the The Devo, Tubeway Army, Screamers and Lost Sounds seams but now they seem a bit weirder - there’s crooning involved - with more speed. Clear vinyl 7" on Static Shock Records.

Erik Nervous and the Beta Blockers

Erik Nervous follows his 2018 album, Assorted Anxieties, by teaming up with a backing band, The Beta Blockers, and importing influences from The Minutemen, Bogshed and Andy Gill of Gang Of Four. There is also an underlying influence hardcore punk running through Erik Nervous and the Beta Blockers with some Saints and Pere Ubu thrown in for good measure.

P22
Human Snake

Formed in Los Angeles half a decade ago by Sofia Arreguin, Nicole-Antonia Spagnola, Justin Tenney and Taylor Thompson, P22 are one of the most accurate and spirited bands to channel the original spirit of West Coast punk. Their 12” EP, Human Snake, consists of material written over the course of nearly three years.

Loose Fit
Loose Fit

Loose Fit are a band started by experimental music enthusiasts namely Kaylene Milner (Drums) and Anna Langdon (Vocals & Sax) who made lo-fi bedroom recordings together. They then fleshed out their sound with a guitarist and bass player and here we are. They take their influences from post-punk giants such as Public Image Ltd, Maximum Joy, A Certain Ratio, James Chance and Bush Tetras as well as Talking Heads and B52’s. Self-titled 5-track EP on Fat Cat.

Salad Days: A Decade Of Punk In Washington, DC (1980-90)

Washington D.C was the location of a stellar punk scene which saw angry young men forgo alcohol and drugs to make fiercely aggressive music and forge a DIY spirit that was a huge influence on subsequent generations. This documentary influences some of the main protagonists such as Fugazi's Ian Mackaye and has live footage from the likes of Fugazi, Government Issue, Gray Matter and Embrace (not that one). 
  • Genre(s):

Viagra Boys
Common Sense

Another sonic whirlwind of punk, raging disco tempos and krautrock hypnotism from Stockholm’s Viagra Boys. Following the success of their 2018 debut album Street Worms, this brilliant group are back to poke more fun at masculinity and have tremendous, gross-out fun into the bargain on Common Sense.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Yammerer
Reality Escape Resort EP

This sounds rather exciting. Yammerer have already been getting plaudits from the likes of Tom Robinson and Clash magazine and play an energetic full-throttle style of post-punk that recalls the Fall and Gang of Four. It may be discordant but it is also kinetic and if you have feet then they will be moving by the end of the first track here. I predict big things.   

Molchat Doma
Этажи

Translated as ‘Houses Are Silent’, Belarussian trio Molchat Doma built on their local reputation in 2018 with the release of their second album Etazhi (its Anglicised title), which performed impressively on YouTube and Bandcamp. Dealing in a Depeche Mode-esque mixture of post-punk, new wave and synth-pop, the album now finds a wider release on Sacred Bones. 

FACS
Void Moments

Post-rock-inspired outfit FACS formed in Chicago a little over three years ago, in the aftermath of the break-up of Disappears. Guitarist Brian Case and drummer Noah Leger have come a hell of a long way in that time, already on their third (and, again, different-sounding) full-length. Void Walker is arguably their most melodic and direct to date, while remaining faithful to the post-punk minimalism of previous efforts. 

Massicot
Kratt

After a seemingly interminable wait since their 2015 full-length debut, Swiss noise-rock outfit Massicot unleash their second album. Dealing in alternating passages of aggressive volume and hypnotic calmness, Kratt forges together Middle Eastern-inspired polyrhythms and European folk with post-punk.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

A new year, a new album. That’s how it goes. Thee Oh Sees are back with more dirty, messy rock. Having strayed from their noisy ways on 2014's Drop, their new album Mutilator Defeated at Last is right back on our favorite track of unforgiving tracks packed with racks of distorting effects and overdriven amplifier stacks.

Molchat Doma
С Крыш Наших Домов

Translated as ‘Houses Are Silent’, Belarussian band Molchat Doma made a serious splash with their 2017 debut album S Krysh Nashikh Domov (its Anglicised title). Dealing in a dark, Depeche Mode-esque mixture of post-punk, new wave and synth-pop, it now finds a wider release on Sacred Bones. 

Milk Teeth
Milk Teeth

It’s been three years since Gloucestershire band Milk Teeth released any new material and four years since their debut, and only album, Vile Child, was released. Fans will be delighted to know that they’re back with an eponymous second offering. Expect more melodic punk  indie rock delivered through magnetic front woman, Becky Bloomfield.

Las Kellies
Suck This Tangerine

Argentinian group Las Kellies return with their fizzy post-punk and new wave designed to get the party absolutely started. Lauren Laverne loves them (Las Kellies not tangerines - though maybe she likes both  - who wouldn't?) and maybe you should too. There's just the two of them but they make a nice big danceable racket.

AK•79 (40th Anniversary Reissue)

A special 40th anniversary re-issue for the seminal compilation AK-79, which documented the exciting punk subculture that was flourishing in Auckland, New Zealand back in 1979. Featuring tracks from the likes of The Scavengers, The Spelling Mistakes, The Terrorways and Proud Scum, this new edition features liner notes written by scene figurehead Bryan Staff. 
  • Genre(s):

The Chats
High Risk Behaviour

To describe something as ‘chat’ in Australia would be a way to express how terrible something is. It is where Australian punks The Chats get their name. However, judging by their celebrity fans(Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop, Josh Homme) and viral success they are far from terrible. High Risk Behaviour is a potential pub-punk classic.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Rays
You Can Get There From Here

Hailing from Oakland, California, Rays have diluted their sonic power, but not their quality, a little by borrowing from the UK ‘80s DIY scene. Influences such as Television Personalities, Cleaners From Venus and Dolly Mixture have shaped the band’s second album, You Can’t Get There From Here. LP or CD on Trouble In Mind.

A Harbinger Sound Sampler

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.

Vinegar Mirror is a coffee table book filled with his photos taken between 2009 and 2013. The book depicts what caught Dwyer’s eye from his home in San Francisco to pretty much everywhere else.

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 Pathetx
1981

Detroit punk band The Pathetx were influenced by the sound of West Coast punk, rather than the famous Detroit bands such as MC5 and The Stooges. They had a 16 year-old bass player who had the very punk name Mick Nasty. 1981 is released though Third Man Records. If you like Dead Kennedys, The Germs and Black Flag then this is for you.

Television Personalities
And Don't The Kids Just Love It (30th Anniversary Edition)

Television Personalities, led by Dan Treacy, were a huge influence on indie bands on both sides of the Atlantic with their mix of ‘60s pop and post-punk. And Don’t The Kids Just Love It was the band’s debut album, originally released in 1981. It stands the test of time as a lo-fi triumph.

Algiers
There Is No Year

Algiers hail from Atlanta, Georgia, apart from drummer, Matt Tong, who comes from Bloc Party. They mix disparate styles such as post-punk and gospel into one rocking sound. The band also take influences from non-musical sources such as southern Gothic literature and politics. There Is No Year is their third album.

Alice Bag
Sister Dynamite

Self-proclaimed troublemaker, feminism activist, writer and Los Angeles punk legend Alice Bag returns with her fourth album, Sister Dynamite. It is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed album from 2018, The Blueprint. Here she shows her ability to make her feelings on politics clear in the shape of punk earworms.

Gravves / Deh​-​Yey
Split EP

Two blasts of noise from the west of the UK here. Gravves hail from the North Wales border and make a cacophony of noise that has seen them gain a large and rather fanatical following due to their endless tour schedule. Deh-Yey emerge from the mean streets of Chester and the two of them make a full on rock racket with their large guitar sound and pummelling drums.

Moaning
Uneasy Laughter

The 2018 self-titled debut album by LA trio Moaning rocked with echoes of goth and grunge running through its veins. For their new outing, Uneasy Laughter, on Sub Pop, they’ve put down the guitars and picked up, or stood in front of, synths and laid down some beats. It’s an album about going through anxiety in the modern age. Undoubtedly a bunch of people will find a friend in this LP.

Rema-Rema
Entry / Exit

Rema-Rema were a post-punk group making grindingly groovy tracks back in the early 80s, molding brutality to synth-wave tunes. Entry is a track initially recorded in 1979 but squeezed off that year’s album. We get to hear it now though, the whole thing washed in wonderful feedback guitar, backed with Exit. 12” on Inflammable Material.

Live recording of Sleaford Mods’ third gig at SO36 in Berlin, from June 2015. Live, angry and righteous, the whole gig was caught on camera and documented. The album contains pretty much all of their biggest tracks, including Jobseeker, Tied Up In Nottz, Joly Fucker, and Tweet, Tweet, Tweet. If studio recordings aren’t gritty and sweaty enough for you...

Sleaford Mods
Key Markets

Just as the UK went back to the ballot box in 2015, our favourite agit-prop duo returned with 'proper' album number three. Named after a particularly gruesome sounding supermarket in Grantham in the '70s and '80s, the album contains further ruminations on the disorientation of modern existence and the pointlessness of politics. "It's a classic," they said. We won't argue.

Primo
Sogni

You know the band Terry, right? Well Primo feature two members of Terry doing music in generally the same ballpark but with a more minimal post-punk ethic at play. The Melbourne-based four piece have been compared to the New Zealand bands of the mid '80s (the Chills et al) as well as Young Marble Giants and Grass Widow. Therefore it's perfect that they've wound up Upset the Rhythm for this, their second album.

Ultimate Success Today is the fifth album by Detroit rock band Protomartyr. It is their second album for Domino Records. The album was inspired by the reissue of their debut album, making singer Joe Casey think about the way they felt first time out. He was reminded of how that could have been the band’s only album and the urgency to make it that spurred them on. He realises that they are in it for the long haul now, but he still wanted to make sure he said what he wanted say while he has the chance.

Deafkids
Metaprogramação

Brazilian psych rockers Deafkids aren't afraid to get nasty. On Metaprogramação, their third album, is built on the polyrhythms associated with their continent, while over the top they flail through heavy guitar riffs and cough and splutter like someone who's swallowed a fly. It's aggressive and intense and well worth giving yourself over to. On Neurot. 

The Cool Greenhouse
The Cool Greenhouse

Built around the vivid imagination and lyrics of Tom Greenhouse, The Cool Greenhouse releases its debut studio album. Produced by Phil Booth and with the benefit of a full band behind him, The Cool Greenhouse injects grand, pop-orientated visions into the framework of DIY indie, taking aim at British society and reactionary politics along the way. 

Thee MVPs
Science Fiction

Thee MVPs are a group from Leeds who all share the same house. They create loud, fast and noisy garage rock. They've supported the likes of Dead Meadow, Meatbodies, Ty Segall and Night Beats in addition to performing at high-profile festivals including SXSW and Levitation. Their music is influenced by Dinosaur Jr., Can, Sabbath, Hot Snakes, a whole host of psych, hip hop, post-punk, and garage punk plus labels as varied as Dischord, SST and Castle Face. 'Science Fiction' was mastered in Chicago by Shellac legend Bob Weston. This one certainly sounds like an exciting first record!

OXZ
Along Ago: 1981-1989

Dealing in dark and gothic post-punk that was ahead of its time back in the early Eighties, OXZ - an all-female trio in Japan’s underground scene at a time when few women were visible in the entertainment industry - enjoyed a sporadic yet influential career. Along Ago: 1981-1989 collects their entire discography of three EPs and one single on a 12-track vinyl, with seven extra unreleased demos available as downloads.

Five years after their last full-length and following the departure of their original rhythm section, a new rotating cast of collaborators bolsters their sound and steer them in the direction of dance-punk.

Their first 12” was quietly dropped on the same day in 2018 as their parent band’s Dose Your Dreams, originally intended as an extension of that album’s themes, but since then their songs have taken on a life of their own, with Falco and Haliechuk pushing for their release separately.

Handle
In Threes

The debut album from newly-formed Manchester three-piece Handle, consisting of former D.U.D.S. members Giulio Erasmus and Nirvana Heire plus the multi-disciplinary artist Leo Hermitt. Placing intelligent political and social commentary at the heart of their urgent, disorientating dance-punk sound, In Threes is a future classic. 

Various (Contortions, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks, Mars, DNA)
No New York

'No New York' is considered to be the definitive album of the No Wave movement. The Brian Eno produced compilation documents four groups from New York's experimental underground scene - DNA, Contortions, Mars, and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks. Stemming from the post-punk and experimental rock scenes, No Wave embraced noise, dissonance, angular rhythms and atonality. Acts as varied as Sonic Youth, Swans, ESG, Lizzy Mercier Descloux and Liquid Liquid were also spawned from the movement. 

Turbonegro
Hot Cars & Spent Contraceptives

Marking the 30th anniversary of the spectacular Turbonegro, Indie Recordings re-issues the Norwegian deathpunk veterans’ debut studio album Hot Cars & Spent Contraceptives. Originally released on the tiny Big Ball label in 1992, it gave an insight into the group’s completely unique sound, the energy of punk and hardcore meeting the theatrics of metal.

Turbonegro
Never Is Forever

Marking the 30th anniversary of the spectacular Turbonegro, Indie Recordings re-issues the third studio album Never Is Forever from the Norwegian deathpunk veterans. Originally released on the tiny Dog Job label, this album was a self-proclaimed “tribute to Blue Öyster Cult”, and saw them move away from the lo-fi nature of their first two records.

  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Names
Swimming

It was always curious how Factory Manchester hooked up with a Belgian arm. This brought a lot of Belgian music to the attention of listeners that may have never been heard. One such group were the Names. They played a dark and taut form of post-punk that was perfect for the times. they were also produced by the legendary Martin Hannett. This clear vinyl re-press collects all their work onto one disc.

Low Life
Catholic Guilt / Dream Machine (Total Control Remix)

Low Life are a band out of Sydney who you might be right in thinking were influenced somewhat by New Order. Catholic Guilt was a leftover from their debut album Dogging and sees the band in downbeat post-punk mode with chorus guitar sounds leftover from the '80s. Over on the flip fellow Aussies Total Control rework Dream Machine so that it sounds something like a Pet Shop Boys banger.

Ssleeping Desiress
Exile House

Exile House is the second studio album from San Franciscan musician Gabriel Ramos, who records under the name Ssleeping Desiress. It arrives a full five years after the project’s self-titled debut, and ploughs the same field of gloomy, icy yet inventive darkwave, with bands like The Cure as Ramos’ touchstones.

Use No Hooks
The Job

The Job is a delightful exhumation of previously unreleased recordings from Australian cult icons Use No Hooks. Active from 1979 to 1984 and featuring members of INXS side-project Max Q and Primitive Calculators, a nine-piece line-up of the band recorded a session in late 1983 that disappeared into the vaults. This seven-track vinyl compilation allows these recordings to finally see the light of day, with six bonus tracks on the digital edition.

Negative Approach
Tied Down

Here's the debut album from Detroit hardcore group Negative Approach. Their first EP became a punk classic with its ferocious pace (ten songs in under nine minutes), and 'Tied Down' only furthered the impact with more breakneck speeds, razor blade riffing and John Brannon's inimitable barked vocals. Napalm Death named a song after this group and there's even a hint of Oi! and UK82 in here too!

The Fall
Interim

There's enough the Fall LPs in the world already without all the non-official ones. Mark E. Smith's attitude to contract signing ensured that there was always someone out there with rights to live tracks and studio outtakes. Interim contains early versions of tracks that would appear on the later (and excellent) Fall Heads Roll alongside studio rehearsals and live tracks.

The Fall
The Idiot Joy Show

The Idiot Joy Show was one of those the Fall live albums that appeared from time to time when Mark E. Smith mislaid the rights to his live recordings. It features the band in 1995 which of course means that it was the six headed line-up that featured Brix Smith (again). This era would end in total pandemonium but the band would be a fascinating and grotesque live draw. It's all here on vinyl should you want to take a peek.

BLÓM
Flower Violence

BLÓM make experimental noise punk that has also been called cute, I guess that’s where the reasonably oxymoronic title of their debut album Flower Violence comes from, or vice versa. Musically they have been likened to Lightning Bolt and Melt Banana and with song titles such as Be Kind, God and Meat you know that their music, along with the song's subjects, is not to be taken lightly. Listen up!

The creative trio of Lisa Horton, Jan Robertson and Iain Ross present debut releases from two of their alter-ego bands on one transparent magenta vinyl.

Hallelujah!
Wanna Dance

Wanna Dance is the new album by Italy’s premier noise punks Hallelujah! And dance, you’ll wanna, well, maybe. The band don’t seem to bothered about that, though. What’s in a title anyway? Here, the band swap guitars for synths to play abrasive sci-fi rhythms and sees them casting their creative net into the world of proto-synth punk experiments.

Sleaford Mods
All That Glue

Sleaford Mods have been a firm favourite with Norman staff and customers over the last seven or so years. Their popularity outside of the Norman bubble has risen incredibly in that time too. All That Glue sticks together (get it?) the best bits of those years with fan favourites, b-sides, rarities and some unheard stuff. Go on...you know you want it.

Cold Meat
Hot and Flustered

Perth-based punk band Cold Meat deliver their debut full-length album, following a number of promising 7” singles over the last couple of years. Finding a sweet spot between the pomposity of classic rock and the gleeful invention of post-punk, Hot And Flustered is an LP cut at 45rpm for volume, and a perfect summation of their retro charm.

Bodega
Shiny New Model

Brooklyn quintet Bodega (and not the Nottingham venue of the same name) have announced a mini-album titled 'Shiny New Model'. It features eight songs of big grooves and wistful melodies. FFO Parquet Courts, Shame, and Idles. What is a mini-album anyway? Where is the line? Is it just an EP? Answers on a postcard.

Mentira
Mentira

It's always hard to guess what Harbinger Sound might release next but the ex home of Sleaford Mods like a surprise. This latest release is from a Barcelona-based duo who make a kind of minimalist post-punk using just keyboard bass and a drum. Keeping things simple they emerge with an eerie sound that will appeal to fans of early '80s minimal synth stuff.

Sell You Everything (1991-2014) Albums, Singles Rarities, Unreleased

Crass
Stations Of The Crass

Stations Of The Crass was the second album by anarchist punk band Crass. It was originally released in 1979. It features three sides of studio recordings and one side which was recorded live in an Islington pub (I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn was there?). The album’s title is not only a pun on Stations Of The Cross, but also the name of their campaign to daub the London underground in graffiti. On Crass Records.

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.    

Dead Moon
Nervous Sooner Changes

Dead Moon played a gnarly form of rock music, bluesy enough to be released on the legendary Mississippi Records. Nervous Sooner Changes almost channels The Rolling Stones at points, quite a compliment for the genre. A good balance between mournful ballads and straight up rockers on this 1995 album, now reissued on LP.

The Durutti Column

Factory Benelux delivers a lavish, double-CD re-issue of Vini Reilly, the 11th studio album from the ingenious, eponymous guitar player’s band The Durutti Column. Originally released in 1989 and coming soon after he had collaborated with Morrissey on Viva Hate, it sought to position Reilly as a pop proposition. Comes with 23 bonus tracks, including all four tracks from his amazing ‘WOMAD Live’ performance.

Coriky
Coriky

Formed in 2015 but taking three years to perform live together for the first time, and a further two to release this self-titled debut album, Washington D.C. outfit Coriky is formed of iconic underground figure Ian MacKaye on guitar, his old Fugazi bandmate Joe Lally on bass and Amy Farina on drums, with all sharing vocals. 

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

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 Good The Bad And The Zugly
Hadeland Hardcore

Norwegian ‘oil-punk’ here from The Good The Bad and The Zugly, surely one of the zugliest names I’ve seen in a while. Hadeland Hardcore is their second album, and it brings thirteen tracks of blast to your ears in just half an hour: quick and dirty, the way this stuff is meant to be. LP on Fysisk Format.

The Durutti Column
Without Mercy

Mancunian post-punks The Durutti Column already had three LPs under their belt by the time they got round to 1984’s Without Mercy, but the previous trio of records wouldn’t have prepared their fans for what the band were about to get up to. Under the tutelage of Tony Wilson the group abandoned their wistful dream-pop style for contemporary classical composition. Drawing on the English classical tradition and the post-minimalist developments of artists like Arthur Russell, The Durutti Column end up with near forty minutes of blissy chamber music that occasionally crosses over into chamber-pop. These New Puritans may have been taking note. Now reissued with extra live recordings and bonus tracks on Factory Benelux.

'Pussy 500' is a reissue for Record Store Day of deconstructivist New York no-fi blues garage slackers Pussy Galore. This is the band's second 12'' release. Following their debut E.P 'Groovy Hate Fuck', 'Pussy 500' first came out in 1987 on the band's own label 'Shove', the original pressing of which sold out almost immediately.
