Under Color of Official Right

This is the second album from Detroit's post-punky indie rockers Protomartyr and their first on Hardly Art. A few friends of mine have already been making excited noises about this so my expectations are high. On my first listen I was struck by how conventional it was, I think I was expecting something more strikingly weird given the rabid early...view item »

The Durutti Column
The Return Of The Durutti Column

Factory Benelux presents a new vinyl edition of landmark album The Return of the Durutti Column, housed in a revised version of the iconic sandpaper sleeve first issued by Factory Records in January 1980. A collaboration between virtuoso guitarist Vini Reilly and legendary Manchester producer Martin Hannett,The Retu...view item »

Ex Hex

Firmly rooted in late seventies North American pop-punk-rock, Mary Timony’s new band, Ex Hex, have given us an album to jump around and sing-a-long to. An instant and instantly essential record that knocks Wild Flag, an album I love by the way, into a cocked hat. She’s al...view item »

Hard Left
Skinheads Home For Christmas

The wonderfully names Skinheads Home for Christmas is a Christmas single in the form of some good ol’ punk rock from Hard Left. It’s heavy riffage and grouchy, gravelly vocals with some fun female backing vocals, just as shouty and full of attitude as the rest of the song. A coloured 7”...view item »

Fawn Spots
New Sense

Sometimes we all need to make some pretty pissed off music, of course - everybody knows that. The real question here is, does the name Fawn Spots refer to a place where fawns hang out, or is about different times people spotted fawns? Or maybe it’s about the spots on a fawn’s lower back. Honestly this band is a myste...view item »


Some deep meditations from Disappears. Irreal is the new full length from the Chicago group. This record is brimming with undertones of angst and frustration just waiting to boil over. Spanning a lot of influences, it evokes elements of Krautrock, trip-hop and electronic dance music done with a live ...view item »

The Ramones
WBUF FM Broadcast, Buffalo NY, February 8th 1978

Just because punk is dead doesn’t mean we can’t love it, right? Imagine you were trying to tape a show off the radio, but then you did it in perfect quality, got it pressed on vinyl and added a sleeve and nice cover for it. Also, the band you were taping was the Ramones while they were riding the peak of their potent...view item »

The Fates

One of the most obscure, rare and coveted records from the Manchester post-punk scene is actually a sweetly shambling DIY "pagan folk" album from Blue Orchids & Fall keyboardist Una Baines and a load of her (mostly female) cohorts. Numerous other B-Orchids/Mancs luminaries are inv...view item »


Garage punk from a band once populated by members of Hookworms. From Wales, to Leeds and, then back to Wales comes Twisted, drawing heavily on punk influences from the 70s and 80s including the Buzzcocks and Rites of Spring with an unmistakable raw, young edge, rightfully angry at what the world is coming to in ...view item »

Room 101
Vox Humana

Room 101’s Jason Williamson hates bands. And by the sound of Vox Humana he hates a bunch of other things as well. Packing all his aggression into the One Man Band results in a 7” jammed to the last groove with energy and punk disdain of anything remotely resembling authority or organized coh...view item »

Gang of Four

Jesus. What are we supposed to do with this? These old-timers don't seem to realise what it was that was so special & unique about their debut album because since the early 80s, they've continually, unopologetically urinated liberally on their own legacy. Like, this new album? I can hear an essence (rare as you like) of their original spirit...view item »

Young Conservatives
Young Conservatives

‘Not young. Not Conservative. An analogy for the modern state. The diluted mediocrity of 21st century British politics. Endless rhetoric and vitriol on what we are against because of our fundamental inability and unwillingness to actually define what it is we stand for. Who are Young Conservatives? The group’s line-up will pr...view item »

Fiction Or Truth

Loud and catchy pop punk from Belgian three-piece Castles. Released on Brussels-based Black Bassett Records, Fiction Or Truth is their second record and sees them craft a selection of earworms amidst the mathy time signatures and shouty vocals. Excellent cover art. Out on vinyl LP from Black Bassett Records....view item »

The Wake
Testament (Best Of)

The Wake started off as an outfit of wannabe post-punk goths before making the switch to Bristol's finest twee label, Sarah Records, and opting to be more whimsical, more kind-hearted, and more indie pop.  'Testament' is a sneaky best of release for the Scottish band, bringing together both sides of the band into one neat compilation: wheth...view item »


Here, on Southern Lord, we have an album of catchy metallic riffs, furious lyrical angst all shot through with classic hardcore-influenced directness. The four piece band recorded the album themselves at the charmingly titled Fvck Life studios and have created an angry, politically-aware album, the blitzkreig assaut will appeal to fans of C...view item »

Normalised : The Detonic Collection

Australia has already stolen the source of all our garage punk/noise rock powers and set up a new base for the genres down under, and now they're taking aim at the dark recesses of electronic music. Detonic Records is home to a variety of unforgiving industrial acts and pulverising EDM artists, who shut out the sun, caving themselves into the di...view item »

The Men

Given the rate at which they’ve been accumulating plaudits and column inches over the past couple of years for their gnarly post-grungey noise rock dirge-pop, on the back of two excellent albums on Sacred Bones, it’s no surprise to see that The Men’s out...view item »

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
The Invisible Girls

The Invisible Girls is a collaborative effort by Steve Hopkins and Martin Hannett who have both weaved their way in and out of the brilliance of many different bands, Hannett producing for the likes of New Order where Hopkins has helped perform for som...view item »

PUNK 45: Burn, Rubber City, Burn - Akron, Ohio: Punk and the Decline of the Mid-West 1975-80

Whereas the first two Punk 45 collections focused on categories as broad as ‘America’ and ‘Britain’, this release is one of two that closely document specific scenes: here, we have 5 years in the punk-life of Akron, Ohio. Typically lovely Soul Jazz cover art and liner notes, and a whole host of amazing music, inc...view item »

PUNK 45: Extermination Nights in the Sixth City - Cleveland, Ohio: Punk and the Decline of the Mid-West 1975-82

While the first two Punk 45 collections concentrated on ‘America’ and ‘Britain’ respectively, this release is one of two that burrow down deep into the punk of a specific city at a specific time. Here, we have 7 years in the punk-life of Cleveland, Ohio. With bands you know (Pere Ubu), and plenty...view item »

Tierra Y Libertad

Excuse me, are those tanks roaring through a landscape strewn with Mayan temples on the album cover? Yes, yes they are. And those are indeed bionic soldiers firing at each other. No, it’s just the album cover of Terria Y Libertad of Californian death metalheads Xibalba. The album title refers to the slogan of the ...view item »


A sloppy broth of lethargy from Fang. Landshark is getting reissued over three decades after it's initial release, and it’s still depressingly relevant. Going anywhere they feel like, Fang spurt out their own brand of smoked-out hardcore-surf-punk-stoner jams. It's the true sound of raw gnar. Out ...view item »

Icky Boyfriends
Live in San Francisco

Icky Boyfriends might not to be everyone’s taste with their songs about spermicide and dental dams, but there is more to them than that. They certainly are loud, raucous, and rocking. Scuzzy heroes of the San Francisco freak scene, this live album captures their iconic sound. On vinyl and CD.  ...view item »

Mark Burgess
View From A Hill

View From A Hill, the story of Mark Burgess -- singer and founding member of legendary post punk band The Chameleons –- was previously only published in very limited print runs, but here it gets the attention it deserves with a revised, definitive edition. Complete with a full discography, family tree and an introduction by fanzin...view item »

Davila 666
Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos

Puerto Rican garage punk with plenty of Satan worship, we presume: Davilia 666 are using 'Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos' to share their blasts of noise with the as-of-yet unwilling world. Describing their tunes as "top shelf quality sit", their wonderful squalor is likely to appeal to fans of scuzzy and silly punks who just enjoy fucking shit up....view item »

The World / Inferno Friendship Society
This Packed Funeral

Cabaret crew The World / Inferno Friendship Society haven't released an album in so very, very long, so it's nice to see they've decided to come out of hiding (aptly, 'tis Halloween) to announce brand new music. 'This Packed Funeral' promises more deep, booming voices relating spooky and trippy stories through klezmer-infused...view item »

Pale Angels
Strange Powers (ARC Live Session)

Grungy jacket punks Pale Angels deliver a quick treat with their Strange Powers session for ARC, offering three originals that continue their primitive squall and forceful early punx energy. There's also a cover of the Feelies thrown in, because if ever there was a band to influence Pale Angel...view item »

Poison Everything

This crust punk invention comes from a variety of different bands, including the more psychedelic Black Mountain and Night Horses. Influenced by more straight-up hardcore acts, from the stalwarts Poison Idea to the once canonized Black Flag, Obliterations take us back to when chaotic punk rock was old-school. 'Poison Everything' is for blasting ...view item »

First Demo

Fugazi are now lauded as one of the most influential punk bands of all time, both for their contributions to the lineage of hardcore (continuing what Minor Threat started with a little more "post" in the mix for the new era) and for their political standpoints, uncompromising live shows and complete autonomy. 'First Demo', though, charts Ian Mac...view item »

Hands Up Who Wants to Die
Vega in The Lyre

Discordant not dissonant, Hands Up Who Wants To Die make a horrible mess with noise rock, leaving some fragments of melody the way McLusky, The Birthday Party and Shotmaker do. Tinges of post-hardcore remain in the guitars of 'Vega In The Lyre', while its best asset is its rambling vocals, which occasionally punctuate th...view item »


Punk trio Purple have named their first ever record '(409)' after the area code they're confined to out in Texas. Sonically, it recalls a history lesson in stripped down punk rock as well as shades of newer, quirkier acts who incorporate punk into their spontaneous indie rock (think Cage the Elephant style quirks)....view item »

Pauline Murray
Pauline Murray And The Invisible Girls

Re-issue of a legendary album recorded back in 1980 and produced by Martin Hannett, its a veritable who's who of the Factory scene with appearances from John Maher (Buzzcocks) and Vini Reilly (Durutti Column) with a sleeve designed by Peter Saville. This double vinyl version includes a bonus CD of instrumental versions, alternate takes, live ver...view item »

Useless Eaters
Bleeding Moon

Useless Eaters is the one man garage rocker Seth Sutton, and 'Bleeding Moon' is shaped from scrappy guitars, snarling bass and a heap of up-to-no-good lyrics. Sutton makes the kind of quick in-and-out guitar pop that makes Jay Reatard and Ty Segall so compelling, bringing to mind the best of the garage rippers who go it alone....view item »

Null And Void
Happiness And Contempt / Montage Morte

Nuttier than a squirrel's turd Happiness And Contempt / Montage Morte by Null And Void. Medical Records re-mastered and reissued this following the resurgence of interest in post-punk heritage. Happiness And Contempt / Montage Morte is a barrage of dystopian synths, bombastic vocals and angular guitars. It's po...view item »


Essential reissue action here from crust-punk pioneers Amebix. Their debut 'Arise!' came out in 1985, a year before the term was even coined, but its apocalyptic blend of snotty anarcho punk and sludgy metal riffs proved hugely influential to a whole generation of imitators. Now you can finally own a copy for less than £50....view item »

The Fall
Live In San Francisco

There have been some pretty shoddy live Fall releases over the years, but Ozit-Morpheus have been fortunate enough to put out 3 of the very worst! This one, Bingo Masters At The Witch Trials and Live In Clitheroe. All for very different reasons.. The problem here is that 5 gigs from this era have already been officially released on the T...view item »

Digital Dance
Total Erasement

Digital Dance are a supergroup of cold-hearted post-punks from a variety of chilly coat-wearing acts including Kid Montana, The Revenge and Marine. They know what they're doing, basically, and the dissonance, despondency and general dourness of 'Total Erasement' can speak to their wisdom and experience. This collection of their singles and demos...view item »

Wax Witches
Center Of Your Universe

Lo-fi pop-punk graces us from Wax Witches, a project started by Alex Wall that delivers no frills, no masters riffs and choruses aimed to be immediate, pulverising and sung along to. 'Center Of Your Universe' collects together refusing, uncompromising blasts of punk rock clearly influenced by the attitudes of the genre's earliest purve...view item »

Oozing Wound
Earth Suck

Thrash heads Oozing Wound make a monolithic sound that defies the science of being a three-piece. Their new record, the wonderfully titled 'Earth Suck', follows up 'Retrash', continuing their almost academic reverence for thrash metal past and present, as well as their inane and gleefully dark lyrics....view item »

It’s Not Unusual

This five-song disc features a cover of the quasi-title cut that Tom Jones made most famous. Of course, the D.O.A. version of "It's Not Unusual" has an entirely different tone than that of the perpetually panty-showered Vegas crooner. Vocalist Joey Keithley revels in the schmaltzy track, extending notes with a throat-splitting caterwaul and enou...view item »

Split Image

A band rather than a Microsoft Office computer app, Excel were crossover punks and/or metalheads who started out in the 80s and released three records -- 'Split Image' is the first, originally recorded in 1983. Excel were raucous, identifying the must chaotic elements of both genres they were interested in, but also self-serious, with ...view item »

The Deep Freeze Mice
Best Of 1979-1989

I don't believe I have ever heard this band but recall seeing their name in print once. I had to feed my friend's snake on a number of occasions and it was quite horrifying having to go in the freezer every couple of days to unearth a frozen baby mouse and defrost it only to watch this vicious scaly beast hungrily vacuum it up. Traumatised I am....view item »

Dead Kennedys
Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables

On this their first album they succeeded more than they ever could have wished for. This was relevant, a wake up call indeed, and still relevant. The demons the Kennedys railed against in 1980 haven't changed much. Society is still messed up, the government is not to be trusted and American culture is sophisticated only in its ability to manipul...view item »

Ravioli Me Away
The Inevitable Album

Ravioli Me Away are a trio of zany London ladies tumping out their own blend of foreboding post-darkwave ravings. Imagine if ESG had written the soundtrack to Tron, or if Kraftwerk met the Raincoats on a protest march but sacked it off to go and watch Twin Peaks on acid. Catch t...view item »

Torch Runner
Endless Nothing

Crusty old punks Torch Runner pop up again on Southern Lord for their new record, 'Endless Nights'. It's the follow-up to their debut, 'Commited To the Ground', and shows off the same metallic grindcore sound, aiming to be even more chaotic. Torch Runner are giving the most unforgiving and impenetrable hardore acts a run for their money, cr...view item »

The Change
Where Were U / Never Alone

Youthful first-wave punkers The Change were active in Manchester in the late 1970s and recorded this four-song EP at the Cargo Studios in Rochdale, but never had the money or backing to release it. 35 years later Vinyl Revival have got hold of the only surviving tape, remastered it and pressed 250 7"s. Better late than never, hey?...view item »

The Greatest Band Of All Time

Arnocorps' modestly-titled 2005 opus 'The Greatest Band of All Time' has finally made it onto vinyl thanks to Alternative Tentacles. This lot have been going strong for 14 years now and are one of several novelty Bay Area thrash/skatepunk bands to mix goofball concept comedy with genuine chops, the most notable contemporaries being ...view item »


Nisennenmondai are an excellent example of what can be achieved with inhuman levels of focus. This Japanese trio strip the ‘rock band’ format down to its minimum elements (I’m pretty sure drummer Sayaka has no more than three pieces to her kit), and are religiously repetitive in building up and then sticking to...view item »

Black Walls

Ken Reaume is primarily known for making meditative psych-folk under his own name, but he steps out into a shiny new alias with Black Walls; his debut under this new project, 'Communion', expands on his drone inclinations while also melding instrumental rock and beautified black metal together. While those genres might conjure up an overwhelming...view item »


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 R...view item »

The Living Eyes
Guilty Pleasures / Lowlife

Limited edition new two tracker from one of Geetroit’s (that’s Geelong, Victoria to you pommy losers!) best! The Living Eyes deal in punk rock, as in pop, with a snarl and whipsmart edge. Australia has some killer stuff going on (as usual), and this new breed of Murder Punk Unknowns features the likes of the Living Eyes at the forefr...view item »

If Anything

Greys are a canadian punk rock band with the sole aim of making a noisy old racket about everything on If Anything.

For fans of Fugazi and ot...view item »

Naomi Punk
Television Man

Over the last four years, Olympia-based punk trio Naomi Punk - featuring singer/guitarist Travis Coster, guitarist Neil Gregerson, and drummer Nic Luempert - have been lighting up DIY warehouses and large concert halls alike with their singular brand of mid-tempo, cathartic punk. Commencing their breakout 2012 debut ‘The Feeling&rs...view item »

Night Jerks

Norwegian blackened hardcore act Okkultokrati have a new album, 'Night Jerks', on offer, full of the same fury and autonomy that has characterized them and the hardcore scene around them. They recently toured with Converge, which isn't a bad association for this band of metallic punks to have, although for practical reasons (guitarist Pål ...view item »


Sweden’s d-beat crust gods, MARTYRDÖD, return with their second full-length for Southern Lord. Once again they entered the infamous Studio Fredman (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) to record their new full-length, entitled Elddop, the crushing follow-up to 2012’s Paranoia LP. ...view item »

The Flesh Eaters
Minute To Pray A Second To Die

Ye olde punk rock supergroup, here: the Flesh Eaters brings together John Doe and DJ Bonebrake -- respectively the vocalist and drummer for seminal punk band X, who were behind the classic 'Los Angeles' -- with Dave Alvin and Bill Bateman of the Blasters. And they've thrown in Steve Berlin of Los Lobos for good measure, becausewe all need a litt...view item »

Cabaret Voltaire
#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 – 1985)

In 1980 I said to my brother the next record Peel plays I'm going to buy. It turned out to be Nag Nag Nag. My brother said it was a horrible noise but I loved it. I'd never heard anything quite like it in my life. That was the starting point of discovering electronic music (Eno/Kraftwerk)...view item »

White Lung
It's The Evil

'It's The Evil' is White Lung's debut record for Deranged and shows the band honing the early version of their current sound, making straight-up punk rock that falls somewhere between classic riot grrrl, early hardcore and UK post-punk, all in under twenty five minutes. Tracks: Viva La Rat...view item »

Divorce (Album)

Glasgow mentalists Divorce have been doing the rounds for a bit now, teasing us with all manner of juicy singles full of scratchy, unhinged psychopunk clatterings, but only now have they finally got round to dropping a full album of their anarchic disc-sander-to-the-face rantings. It’s f...view item »

My Dad’s a Fuckin’ Alcoholic

This week Alternative Tentacles compile everything Frantix ever recorded onto a single easy to digest LP. Not too hard, you'd think, since these proto-grungers only got a couple of 7"s out before morphing into The Fluid, but with some unreleased shit thrown into the mix you're looking at 23 tracks on a single pl...view item »

No Means No
Dance Of The Headless Bourgeoisie

Dance Of The Headless Bourgeoisie by NoMeansNo was originally released in 1998. A CD reissue appeared in 2004 but it’s not until now that a vinyl reissue of their groundbreaking 10th album has seen the light of day. Dance Of The Headless Bourgeoisie is available on double vinyl LP housed i...view item »

Gooch Palms

As you may know, much of the music we stock is Very Serious Music, which has an entirely valid place on the musical landscape and all but when you have to listen to every record it can get exhausting, and it’s a relief when something light and easily digestible comes in. Today my light relief has come in the form of this delightful LP by N...view item »

White Lung
Deep Fantasy

Thought I'd squeeze in a few typed yelps in about this shouty nu-punk stormer.  I think this is Domino's answer to that there quite excellent Perfect Pussy and regardless of their relatively poor showing in the Norman archives for past endeavours, have proved themselves to be a melodic punk force to be ...view item »

Goober Patrol / 7 Day Conspiracy

Two punk bands that have been around for forever and just keep on going. Goober Patrol, from the stables of Fat Wreck Chords, and 7 Day Conspiracy with their underground UK following have joined forces and this split LP put together for your pleasure. Get two punk bands with only one 180gr piece of vinyl....view item »

Ed Schrader's Music Beat
Party Jail

Minimal dirty two piece punk racket which on opener ‘Pantomime Jack’ lurches into a screaming raucous chorus. So far, so Cramps but ‘Pink Moons’ lurches into a lo-fi minimal dub direction think Dub Narcotic Soundsystem. The album seems to continue...view item »

Abrakadabra / Magnapinna

Here’s a split 12” between a band I’ve not heard, Berlin trio Abrakadabra (“groove-ridden dissonance” says the press release), and one I have heard, local trio Magnapinna (“dissonant, groove-ridden” says the press release). First thing’s first then, I’m listening to Abrakadabra’...view item »

Fucked Up
Glass Boys

Toronto stadium punks Fucked Up are back this week with another ambitious LP of melodramatic three guitar epic-core and they’re sounding as cavernous as ever on ‘Glass Boys’. Every song sounds like a big compressed wall of guitar distortion, pounding drums and roaring vocals. It’s not bad, but aesthetically seems not to r...view item »

Of Factory New York

Here we have a great collection of Factory classics, the profits of which are going to a good cause to help Michael Shamberg, Michael helped run the New York Factory office in the eighties and has been sadly struck down with Mitochondrial disease. This album features 13 tracks from the more dance oriented period of the Factory legacy, with the s...view item »

Satan's Satyrs
Die Screaming

In the world of Satan's Satyrs, the riff is king. They don't even give us a whiff of vocals until we've banged our heads through a five-minute barrage of non-stop pummelling riffage. Their singer has a weird voice, thin, trebly and sneering, which works oddly well against the backdrop of thick, chunky testosterock.   ...view item »

Midnight Passenger

Grimy psych-garage post-punks Ex-Cult are back this week with the follow up to 2012's self-titled, Ty Segall-produced debut. The garage rock wunderkind isn't twiddling the knobs this time but 'Midnight Passenger' is nonetheless a shuddering juggernaut of slamming repeato rhythms and shattered-glass guitar....view item »

Cosmic Thoughts
Cosmic Thoughts

I just finished writing about the cosmic synth voyages of Emeralds offshoot Outer Space, so how fitting that the next thing I have to critique today is the self-titled LP of Cosmic Thoughts.

Revenge of the Psychotronic Man
Ten Years of Revenge

Here’s a word of advice: don’t get on this guy’s bad side, he’ll pursue you for over a decade.

Punk 45: Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! The American Nation Destroys Its Young - Underground Punk in the United States of America, Vol. 1. 1973-1980

These Soul Jazz comps never fail to impress do they? This time around they’ve taken it upon themselves to distil the development of punk rock in the 1970s into a concise collection of 21 obscure 45s from the era from the proto-punk garage pop of the Flamin’ Groovies through to the robotic no-wave march...view item »

Third in the series of the Soul Jazz Punk 45 compilations and this time we’re taken further back to the proto-punk/post-glam beginnings of punk history with many of these bands opting for a more stylized viewpoint to the music. According to the great little booklet you get with these collections, a lot of the bands here are donne...view item »

Plague Vendor
Free To Eat

A well-referenced garage-rock debut from California natives Plague Vendor. At times deadpan like a stateside Mark E. Smith and others yelpy in a Jack White sort of way, there’s plenty to like here. With a lyrical toe submerged in the occult and a tongue in the cheek, Free To Eat is a refreshing ride. Out on CD and...view item »

Diesel Dudes
Hercules Initiative EP

Ace 7” here of goofy digital punk from the amusingly named Diesel Dudes, whose homoerotic opening paean to weed and working out is a hilarious mixture of dirty Atari-Teenage-Riot-doing-Iggy Pop’s-‘Real-Wild-Child’ distorto-beats and a kind of ...view item »

Lydia Lunch

Retrovirus is a career-spanning (1977 to present) live set from Lydia Lunch. The tour that spawned the set featured a band made up of Weasel Walter on guitar, Algis Kizys, who has played with Swans and Foetus, on bass and original Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert. ...view item »

The Exploited
The Massacre - Special Edition

Formed in Edinburgh in 1980, The Exploited rode a wave of extreme ennui that imbued many in 1980s Britain. The Massacre is their sixth and most successful album and sees the band introducing elements of thrash metal to their undiluted, visceral punk rock. Available on limited edition 180g double vinyl LP and lim...view item »

Die Partei
La Freiheit Des Geistes

Wow, this is really good. A short lived but highly effective pairing of Tom Dokoupil and Walter Dahn, two (at the time) young and wild characters immersed in the krautrock and emerging dance music underground. Released by Bureau B in 1981 ‘La Freiheit Des Giestes’ is a quirky collection of electronic dance tracks that showcase the po...view item »

More Than Life
What’s Left Of Me

What’s Left Of Me is the new album by More Than Life, or MTL to their friends. More Than Life have been operating successfully as part of the UK underground scene for while now, piling up YouTube views and having their vinyl repressed to cope with demand of shifting units. What’s Left of...view item »

The Expression Of Power

Bl'ast are one of the few pioneering '80s hardcore bands who have continued through to the present day without becoming slightly embarrassing or going insane. I guess they've earned this incredibly thorough reissue of their iconic debut LP 'The Power of Expression'. One thing I didn't realise about this album was that it was actually recorded th...view item »

Ruined Fortune
Ruined Fortune

Yo yo yo, more goodness from Hozac. This time around it’s Circle Pit’s Angie Bermuda and Nic Warnock (of RIP Society Records fame) bashing it out in their new free-rock guise Ruined Fortune.

Ragged Barracudas
Ragged Barracudas

Here’s a single of dirty hairy man rock from Ragged Barracudas. On side A is ‘Living the Dream’ which is a lo-fi ‘70s bulldozer riff with a bit of a cocky glam swagger to it. Everything is all muddy and distorted and there’s some sloppy squealing guitar solo bits. Enjoyable....view item »

Keep My Soul Awake

This reissue sees Orange County hardcore punk band Farside going back to the very beginning. Keep My Soul Awake was their first ever single and later appeared on their debut album Rochambeau. Interestingly, Zack De La Rocha had a brief stint with the band as a second guitarist before he fr...view item »

Silver Arm
He of the Slow Creep EP

Get your freak on with Silver Arm. He of the Slow Creep EP is the latest four tracker from these London chaps. It packs quite a punch with some pretty addled vocals, heavy and highly strung guitars, overdriven bass and hectic drums. Think spooky and psych driven post-punk - it's somewhere between The Nati...view item »

Three Dimensional Tanx
I am go / Loose Id Syd

This single opens with a Hammond refrain that sounds an awful lot like 'No More Heroes' by the Stranglers, but then there's some comically overdriven wah-wah guitar and some chatty vocals that remind me a little bit of the first Arctic Monkeys album. I heard these guys's a...view item »
