Rites Of Spring
Six Song Demo

Pretty excited about this one coming into the office. Dischord are finally treating us to a definitive official release of the mythical first demo of Guy Picciotto and Brendan Canty’s pre-Fugazi emo trailblazer...view item »

Nails
Abandon All Life

This record clocks out after a breathless seventeen minutes, not a single one of them spent idling about. A perfect balance is here struck between the sort of shrieking, close-to-the-brink manic energy of the aforementioned likes of Narcosis (‘Tyrant’, ‘No Surrender’), and an immense capacity for variety in the songcraft....view item »

Bailterspace
Trinine

Another New Zealand return this time from a band who knocked about for awhile doing a kind of antipodean Sonic Youthy thing. A lot has been made of the disappointing new Pixies material but who else has really come back with anything stronger or as strong as the records they did back...view item »

September Girls
Cursing The Sea

The process of doling out reviews to our various staff is more fraught than you may think. This record seems to have been knocking about forever and still we wait on the review from its once enthusiastic champion. A sequence of implausible events have scuppered it but we are not letting it get away though, no way,  so September Girls, you a...view item »

Gnarwolves
Chronicles Of Gnarnia

Chronicles of Gnarnia is a collection of all three Gnarwolves releases from 2011's "Party Jams" up to 2013's "CRU" and "Funemployed". It's a great way for anyone late to join the Gnarwolves CRU to catch up with everything in one convenient 12" record. The Brighton based punks took over the scene fairly swiftly after the release of their ...view item »

The Notwist
Nook

Nook is the second full-length album to be recorded by German band, The Notwist and was originally released in 1992. Nook is an example of their early sound which took in elements of heavy metal and dark indie rock rather than their later electronica sound for which they are more well known. Nook...view item »

Happy Ever After
Happy Ever After

Happy Ever After were a short lived outfit (existing from ‘89 to ‘90) made up of members of Skeezicks, Apes Of Wrath and Social Unrest, three bands I know absolutely nothing about. This compilation of their recorded output features five tracks, two that featured on a stand alone 7”, a track f...view item »

Dead Moon
Defiance

Defiance, Dead Moon’s fourth album, is full of attitude and has songwriting chops to match. Originally released in 1990, this is the first time the album has been available worldwide on CD. Defiance includes the fan favourites and Dead Moon classics, Dagger Moon, Johnny&rsquo...view item »

Helms Alee
Sleepwalking Sailors

This new Helms Alee album is another step in a similar direction as the previous two but has more to do with the first record than the last one, which is the weakest out of the 3 I think. It has all the great bits from the first record, awesome harmonys, that crunching guitar sound which is so distin...view item »

Epicycle
You're Not Gonna Get It (1978-81)

Chicago's Epicycle were much lauded in the late '70s scene they sprung from, but fizzled out before they made any significant impact on the musical landscape of the time. HoZac haven't forgotten them, though, and here's a collection of their studio recordings ready to be discovered by fresh ears. The quartet barely look old enough to shave on th...view item »

Ike Yard
Remix EP 3

Early 80’s minimal electro post-punk outfit Ike Yard receive further remix treatment from a wicked selection of current players. This set follows remixes from Regis, Tropic Of Cancer, Fred Szymanski and Arnaud Rebotini. Stepping up here we hav...view item »

Bored
Take It Out On You

Here's a reissue of a 1990 album from Australia's Bored!, recorded in the band's death throes and interestingly featuring the late Tim Hemensley, singer and bassist from GOD, who joined the band briefly after that act split up. His influence is very plainly felt, too, with the opening two tracks being Hemensley-penned n...view item »

Dope Body
Natural History

Ooh, I'm not familiar with Dope Body but one track in and this CD has already reminded me of Floor, Shellac and ...view item »

Chaos Destroy
Lightning Strikes Twice

We’ve got a slab of frantic Jap-influenced noise punk shrapnel here from America’s Chaos Destroy, who turn out ten tracks of head-fuckingly frantic, blown out hardcore punk which is all but obscured by tape muck and feedback and broken, distorted equipment. The primary influences here would have ...view item »

Oozing Wound
Retrash

I made a decision to review something that wasn’t sound art because I just did several sound art records in a row and it was starting to interfere with my chi. The record I was most confident wouldn’t be sound art turned out to be this debut mini-album from Oozing Wound. This lot are peddling some of the most filthy thrash metal you&...view item »

The Ex & Brass Unbound
Enormous Door

I used to like the Ex..(circa 1983/84),then for no real reason..left them behind,they released sooo many records i could'nt keep up..then somehow i heard they had a new singer,thought hmmm,i give him a listen..probably won't like it..HOOLLYY SHIT,'catch my shoe' the previous lp...A-MA-ZING. Instantly my fave...view item »

White Lung
Songs of the South

Vancouver residents White Lung hit us with a 7” for Sexbeat. A-side ‘Blow It South’ is a echo lead saturated punky effort sitting somewhere between Ringo Deathstarr and The Men. It’s a lively beast! Flip it and ‘Down With You’ introduces som...view item »

New War
New War

The eponymously-titled album by this Melbourne quartet is a real blast. It's one of those multi-faceted treats that come out of nowhere and begin to persistently beg to be put in the player whenever you pass within three feet even when you have loads of other things you really should be...view item »

Cabaret Voltaire
The Covenant, The Sword And The Arm Of The Lord

Those moody, lovelorn synths weren't just for The Human League and their ruinous cocktail bars with their Shakespearian tragedies. Cabaret Voltaire had the same idea, and their seventh record -- The Covenant, The Sword and the Arm of the Lord -- arrived slap bang in the middle o...view item »

Cabaret Voltaire
Micro-Phonies

Synth gloomers Cabaret Voltaire originally released the delightfully titled Micro-Phonies in 1984, taking us down the pop route with a record of unapologetic hits -- hey art, you've gotta make money sometimes. No matter: the record delivers on its catchy intent, "Sensoria" features, and the band flie...view item »

Sweet Madness
Made In Spokane: 1978-1981

This song got lodged in my head and couldn't be removed without a crowbar! There's a beginning, a middle, and an end...without 20 minutes of guitar diarrhea! As they say, don't bore us...get to the chorus. A very good alternative to Miley Cyrus. Highly recommended....view item »

Purling Hiss
Paisley Montage

Purling Hiss’s recent ‘Water On Mars’ LP was a departure from the meandering blown out stoner fuzz of their early material into a more concise (and some cynical people may say more marketable) gnarly grunge-pop business. Those who lament the move away from those raw, twiddly early days of fu...view item »

The Wild Swans
Incandescent

'80s Liverpudlian post-punkers The Wild Swans attempted to keep the dream alive after The Teardrop Explodes, forming out of their old members and releasing 'Revolutionary Spirit', their sole shining document. This collection gives a look in to the remixes and unheard demos that the band left trail...view item »

Coachwhips
Hands On The Controls

Garage rock fans will be happy about this one - Castle Face have just pressed the first Coachwhips album ‘Hands On The Controls’ onto vinyl for the first time ever, and thrown six unreleased tracks in to sweeten the deal. That’s 25 songs on a single LP. ...view item »

Obits
Bed & Bugs

Hot Snakes/Drive Like Jehu legend Rick Froberg’s latest outfit Obits have their third album out this week on Sub Pop. The quartet are ripping out some more of their loose-limbed bluesy post-punk rock&rsqu...view item »

Death Hymn Number 9
3rd Degree Moon Burns

Death Hymn Number 9 forms an ear-orgy of energy, noise and violence as soon as the needle touches the record with their 2nd album 3rd Degree Moon Burns. After coming across this record in a store I knew I had to buy it, despite only hearing it online two or three times and its only grown on me. The mumbled, screechy vocals on this record are an ...view item »

Next Year's Love
Smash The Pink Bug

From Shanghai, an all-girl post-punk band called Next Year's Love, definitely channeling a bit of The Duke Spirit, er, spirit. Lots of brooding synths and moody guitars on the a-side track Smash the Pink Bug, and then a bit more of an upbeat dance-y number on the b-side with True Love Song. Baby blue vinyl, 7” from Genjing...view item »

Snapline
Phenomena

This is the first of a series of records from China that we have somehow got into stock. I had no idea what to expect, having previously no clue what kind of music people from China would be making. I am pleasantly surprised by this album of eerie, icy post-punk. They have a very unique sound, based around pulsing bass and electronics, everythin...view item »

Factory Floor
Factory Floor

Oh! Here’s the record that many of us have been waiting for for literally years. Yes, after what seems like an age of just putting out limited singles and EPs Factory Floor have finally taken the plunge and done a full-length album. My knowledge about the dance musics is limited, and countless column inc...view item »

Ancient Times
Night School / Hieroglyphic

Ancient Times is the brainchild of Brighton youngster George Smale. They put out a tape last year on Coastal Wizards and now they’ve got this 7” out on Soft Power and I’m finally hearing what they sound like. What they sound like is ...view item »

Dead Kennedys
Bedtime For Democracy

A slab of raging hardcore punk, the Dead Kennedy's final album, "Bedtime for Democracy", is probably in many ways a response to the disastrous affair conducted during the investigation of "Frankenchrist". Whereas that album reached through different forms and really expanded the vocabulary of the band, musically, this one focuses on aggressive p...view item »

National Wake
Walk In Africa

Here’s a name I’ve never heard before. National Wake were active in South Africa from 1979 until 1981, a mixed race punk band in apartheid South Africa, they were mired in controversy and their album was pulled by the government after selling a measly 700 copies. I don’t want to go too far into their history and background beca...view item »

Georgiana Starlington
Paper Moon

When we get records with the HoZac label on I tend to expect some kind of grizzled outsider punk business, but this LP is anything but that, instead having musicians with punk pedigree (counting K-Holes and ex-Black Lips among their nu...view item »

Wymond Miles
Passion Plays

Former Fresh And Onlys guitar player Wymond Miles releases this single on the Sacred Bones label. 'A' side ‘Passion Plays’ is a gritty slice of goth/post-punk that sounds amazingly like an Interpol song. 'B' side ‘Bat...view item »

Afflicted Man
I'm Off Me 'ead

Certainly way more than what it appears at first glance. Its sleeve would give the impression of a half baked would-be punk, its initial sound suggests the same but delve a little deeper and there is much more to it. This was the early ‘80s project of one Steve Hall, a kind of proto-punk protaganist who released a slew of albums in the lat...view item »

Disappears
Era

Disappears are back with, what is it now, album number four? They don’t have Steve Shelley among their ranks any more nowadays but they’re still peddling that same brand of psychedelic indie rock with lots of repetition and touches of goth and no-wave and krautrock. It’s a very cool combination ...view item »

Black Rat Speedway Machine
No Gears, No Brakes, No Brains EP

Total DIY noise punk with just a hint of 50’s greaser thrown in for good measure, Black Rat Speedway Machine give us this 8, YES 8 track seven inch (although none of the tracks here are longer than 2 minutes long). The sound of this EP is that of absolutely no high production values whatsoever, this is downright dirty and loud, jus...view item »

Shocked Minds
Shocked Minds

Two new LPs in on HoZac this week - a new one from Heavy Times and this debut from Humans/Testors dude Josh Martin’s new outfit Shocked Minds. Our Parcelforce guy just came into the office and immediately asked who we were listening to, saying he liked it and it sounded like it could’ve been made in the &l...view item »

The New Fabian Society
Cyclothymia

Glasgow’s New Fabian Society release this single on Electric Company Records, 'Cyclothymia' is a brutal slice of dark gothic post punk with the dirtiest of guitar distortion noise, the vocals hint at a Damned/Fields Of The Nephilim style evil growl, Side B ‘Homily’ couldn’t sound any more li...view item »

Bits Of Shit
Cut Sleeves

Ooh, this is right up my street. Nice bit of noisy garagey punk bullshit here from Australia’s Bits of Shit, who make a right old punky racket like The DHDFD’s, Tyvek and Pissed Jeans out on a boozy vision ...view item »

These Monsters
Heroic Dose

Heroic Dose is the 2nd album from Leeds' These Monsters and the follow up to 2010's Call Me Dragon.  Now a three piece following their saxophonist’s move to China their sound has evolved from freaked out riff-driven space prog force to a more grimy agressive speed fueled punk; the 6 minute, principally instrumental slabs of...view item »

Wax Idols
Discipline & Desire

Hmmm... Discipline. We all need it, baby. Oh yes, thats better. The first paragraph of the press release states how this Oakland, California four piece are more suited to the damp British climate. I was thinking just the same thing. The never ending torrents of rain, your long raincoat traipsing through puddles, running to Walter Wilsons through...view item »

Muuy Biien
This Is What Your Mind Imagines

I thought Happy Happy Birthday To Me pretty much exclusively dealt in upbeat and sometimes twee indie pop business, so imagine my surprise when I bung this Muuy Biien LP on the stereo to discover that actually this lot specialise in &lsq...view item »

Iggy & The Stooges
Ready To Die

The first album back from the reanimated Stooges a few years ago, ‘The Weirdness’, didn’t really push my buttons at the time, since lots had happened in the years which have passed since ‘Raw Power’ (Incidentally, the press release makes a big deal about trumpeting that it’s the...view item »

Wire
Change Becomes Us

Post-punk legends Wire release their thirteenth studio album ‘Change Becomes Us’ and a lot has happened in music since their 1977 debut ‘Pink Flag’, yet Wire have tried their best to change with the times but still retain a signature sound. Most of these songs are sketches of ideas based...view item »

Black Bug
Reflecting The Light

Here’s a 45rpm LP from French-stationed Swedes Black Bug on the ever-reliable HoZac, ripping through 11 tracks of coldwave-influenced post-punk darkness drenched in chilly Carpenter synths and grungy distortion. Opener &ls...view item »

Jello Biafra & The Guanatanamo School Of Medicine
White People And The Damage Done

Not only is the great Jello still making music, he's aged as gracefully as cheddar (for lack of a better metaphor). Opening with the snappy, sharp-witted track "The Brown Lipstick Parade" all they way through the grand finale, "Shock-U-Py" this album is full of energy and a kind of carefully crafted sarcasm and mockery that could on...view item »

!!! (chk chk chk)
THR!!!ER

Sacramento funk punkers !!! (usually pronounced chk chk chk) offer up their fifth long player ‘Thr!!!er’, although previous efforts like ‘Louden Up Now’ and ‘Myth Takes’ seem to have a real energy about them, this feels a lot like the whole disco/post-punk thing has been ...view item »

Buck Gooter
Witch Molecules

This one is interesting. I didn’t know anything about these guys before today except that they play noise rock, so I was expecting some kind of formulaic pig-fucker screech-out but actually what this duo are doing is weirder and more interesting than that, taking minimal rhythms and str...view item »

Roseanne Barrr
Repulsion

Not to be confused with prime-time-sitcom-legend-cum-political-oddball Roseanne Barr, Roseanne Barrr are a boy-girl bass-and-drums duo of DIY queer punkers from London who I’m mostly aware of through their affiliation with Leeds anarcho-banshees Etai Keshiki. Their sound is a throbbing,...view item »

Memoires d'Automne
Cliche

This one here is the first vinyl issue of a 1996 self-produced tape by French coldwavers Memoires D’Automne, and as you would expect it’s full of metronomic beats, watery guitars, brittle bass and heartfelt vocals, with more than a hint of gothy post-punk retro, re...view item »

Paranoid Visions
Rock And Roll And Revolution

Weird punky 7” here, opens with samples and then there’s some comedy oi vocals which I think are coming courtesy of Steve Ignorant of all people and then it goes into a fist-pumping ‘90s pop punk bit that’s almost like Propagandhi or ...view item »

Merchandise
Children Of Desire

This is one of the most interesting bands I've heard recently and have been listening to them regularly for the past 2 years. The singer's voice is amazing and has a unique longing quality to it. The songs are really well crafted too, they do tend to sprawl a bit but always come back together and have some interesting hooks. I tend to go for ban...view item »

Guerilla Toss
Jeffrey Johnson

Fantastic. Totally bizarre. Perhaps the future of music. The art is wonderful too. I see these guys live once when I was in New York City. Their live performance is mind blowing....view item »

Little Ease
The Converted

Got another Leeds special here. Actually I’m not familiar with this band so they might not be from Leeds (or I might be at the wrong shows) but it’s recorded by ultra-’Worm MJ (and weirdly enough the singer actually has quite a s...view item »

Wooderson
Let The Man Speak

I’ve got a real soft spot in my hard mechanical heart for Sheffield scamps Wooderson, who here have dropped their debut long-player after knocking about on the live scene around Yorkshire and beyond for seemingly an age. They peddle a blend...view item »
