Various
Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol. 2

The BART is the rail transport system which connects San Francisco's Bay Area, and so it should come as no surprise that this is a compilation of music from that area around the late '70s and early '80s. With contributions from the likes of Factrix, Chrome and Tuxedomoon as well as lesser known artists from the scene, this compilation records the strange motorik mixture of krautrock, synthpop and no-wave that was spreading across the bay like a rash.

All Your Sisters
Uncomfortable Skin

All Your Sisters are proudly in love with a certain part of the 1980’s when industrially-vibed post-punk was all the rage. Their second album Uncomfortable Skin nails that particular sound with stern drum machines, obscured vocals and Cureish guitars. Lots of shadowy swagger, released by the deliberately dark Flenser label.

7 Year Bitch
Live At Moe

Sold out - sorry!

Frameworks
Smother

Emotional hardcore band Frameworks return with a second full-length, sounding both more emotional and more hardcore than ever before. The heartfelt anguish of the frontman can’t be disputed as he howls his throat raw over the actually-quite-pretty instrumental tracks, and the whole thing has the epic widescreen scope of a lot of post-rock. Smother is out on Deathwish Inc.

Cottaging
Headhunter

Sold out - sorry!

Alan Parker
One Summer

1983’s British TV show One Summer was blessed with a particularly interesting soundtrack produced by Alan Parker, whose session work saw him turning up on Kate Bush and David Bowie records. All sorts of sharp atmospheres here. The whole of his original score (the tracks are very short) is presented on this 7” on Finders Keepers.

Soviet Soviet
Nice

Soviet Soviet, who are, curiously enough, an Italian band, created and self-released the tracks on Nice as a variety of singles from 2008 onwards: they they were digitally compiled in 2011, and now they are at last pressed to wax together. This is the band’s earliest material, showing off their tight and adventurous post-punk sound. Limited edition of 500 LPs on Felte.

Soviet Soviet
Summer, Jesus

Sold out - sorry!

Sold out - sorry!

Entracte Twist
Christine Young

Pretty slick indie-punk action here from Entracte Twist, an up-and-coming band from France. Christine Young has a low-slung 80’s kind of swagger to it, stylish and rude. This is the first ever vinyl release from the charmingly-named Croque Macadam label; a 7” single limited to 350 copies.

The Flexibles
Pink Everything

The Flexibles are a fuzzed-up weird-punk trio made up of Andrew Paine, Richard Youngs, and his pre-teen son Sorley Youngs, because why the hell shouldn’t Richard’s son get involved in the family trade? Pink Everything is a sort-of concept album mostly written by Sorley(!), though his father’s vocals are unmistakable. A strange and wonderful band, but should we really be surprised? On Night School.

Terry
Terry HQ

With the sad demise of Wogan there's room for another Terry in town. This Terry contain members of Total Control and make music which owes a lot to those scratchy post-punk types. They often sing all together in a kind of communal depressed football team style. For fans of early the Chills, Swell Maps, the Clean and the Go-Betweens I think.   

DVA Damas
Clear Cut

Sold out - sorry!

Hallelujah! / Holiday Inn
Split

Two Italian groups share some 7” wax on the latest split from Maple Death Records. Holiday Inn play stripped-back synth-punk and Hallelujah! play full-band noise punk, but what we can’t stress enough is how lo-fi, overdriven and just generally blasted both acts sound. Messy and nasty and ever so much fun. Hand-stamped 7”s.
  • Vinyl 7" (MDR008)
  • In stock and ready to ship
  • Limited edition

VHS
Gift of Life

VHS are a bleak-stare post-punk outfit with a fierce outlook and a blasted aesthetic. Main songwriter Josh Hageman uses his day job to provide heavy tales of medical sufferings, which are capably accompanied by the wiry-harsh guitars and relentless rhythm section pummel. Gift of Life is out on Suicide Squeeze (CD, vinyl and clear vinyl editions).

Wolf Eyes / Timmy's Organism / Video
Audio Social Dissent - Live at Third Man

Wow, Jack White has started hanging out with some heavy characters… He invited Video, Timmy’s Organism and prime trip-metallers Wolf Eyes (they were all touring together) into Third Man Records to record a thicky, noisy session. Audio Social Dissent - Live At Third Man includes a never-before-released Wolf Eyes song by the way!

Male Gaze
King Leer

Male Gaze are a band that has scooped up members of garage-punk groups to form a formidable roster: members of Mayyors, Blasted Canyons and The Mall are all here. King Leer is an especially poppy record with that heritage in mind, but plenty of fuzz and fire remains, don’t you worry. King Leer is, of course, released by John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

Pylon
Gravity

Sold out - sorry!

The Green Bananas
The Ape / Green Banana

The Green Bananas are a side project of Australian weirdo indie band Straight Arrows. With their new single, and sure-fire massive hit The Ape, they attempt to create a primitive yet electrifying new dance craze. The b-side contains an eponymously titled instrumental. Limited edition of 350, on Agitated.

The King Blues
Off With Their Heads

You may remember that The King Blues broke up four years ago, leaving their punk rocking ways behind them. Those four years have seen Cameron and his cronies in government and clearly the prospect of another four years has spurred the band back into action. Off With Their Heads is a seven track EP, putting the punk back into politics. Blood Red Vinyl with Download Card.

Converge
You Fail Me

Converge reissue a couple of old favourites via the Deathwish Inc. label. Originally released in 2004, You Fail Me is one of the best examples of the legendary band’s cutting metalcore brutality, pushing through twelve tracks in only thirty-five minutes. This vinyl version also includes a bonus track exclusive to this release.

Useless Eaters
Relaxing Death

To use the word ‘relaxing’ to describe any aspect of Useless Eaters would be a misnomer. However, the San Francisco-based futuristic punks have decided to call their new album Relaxing Death. An uneasy ride of jittering synths and looping drum machines through a dystopian future that may already be here.

The Gotobeds
Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic

The Gotobeds are a fired-up rock band with a jagged-edged, noisy sound: all gnarled and twisted and shouting. Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic, which doesn’t appear to contain any Red Hot Chilli Peppers covers, is released by Sub Pop in CD and cassette tape editions, plus two differently-presented vinyl editions.

Sievehead
Buried Beneath

Sold out - sorry!

The Hellacopters
Supershitty To The Max!

Sold out - sorry!

The Tempest
5 Against The House

The Tempest were a John Peel-approved, semi-obscure 80’s post-punk outfit whose splintered members would later go on to do time in Venus Fly Trap, Spacemen 3 and Spiritualised. 5 Against The House has them rocking a angular guitar / funky bass combination that pins them to 1984. Reissued on blue / white splatter vinyl with a bonus CD version, in new artwork. On Optic Nerve.

Efialtis
Efialtis

Efialtis do punk like the punks used to in the 80’s: crunching riffs, pounding rhythms and an Oi! Attitude. This self-titled 7” is their first ‘proper’ release, with 3 new recordings of songs from their previous demo and a brand new one. The Greek vocals are particularly good. Edition of 500 from Static Shock.

Sheer Mag
II

Sold out - sorry!

Sublime
Robbin' The Hood

Ska-punks Sublime went almost experimental with their second album Robbin’ The Hood, which was recorded to a 4-track machine at home, lending it a lo-fi feel. The band also quote, reference and sample a panoply of other artists from the reggae and rock worlds. Double LP, freshly remastered, on Universal.

Sublime
Second-Hand Smoke

Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. Second-Hand Smoke is a fairly suitable title: this 1997 release is a compilation with a real mixed-up tracklist, including remixes and recycling of older material, unheard stuff, and covers of the likes of Bob Marley. All remastered and re-released as a double LP on Universal.

GØGGS
GØGGS

GOGGS are yet another band who feature the world's most active garage rocker Ty Segall. This time he's on guitar whilst Chris Shaw 'smokes the mic' as the press release confirms. That information coupled with the fact that this appears on In the Red suggests that this is lively punky garage with the most fuzzed out guitars you ever heard.  

Thee Oh Sees
Live In San Francisco

Thee banner garage rawk band played the Chapel out in San Francisco, launching their happy-go-lucky psychedelia into a crowd of possibly stoned hopefuls. This extensive set is presented not only as audio but in DVD format with photos to boot. Musically, it scales more towards their propulsive, loud, noisy side -- but the Oh Sees have so many songs I'd expect you'll feel a little bit of everything.

Sublime

Sold out - sorry!

Sublime
Stand By Your Van

Sold out - sorry!

Mrs Magician
Bermuda

Mrs. Magician’s second album Bermuda is a particularly energetic (even if lyrically heavy) piece of pop-punk. Kind of fuzzy and noisy, but also kind of sleek-sounding. Released on Swami Records, the imprint of the Drive Like Jehu / Rocket From The Crypt dude of the same (nick)name, who also produced the album.

Savages
Adore Life

Savages return! Second album Adore Life is just as ferocious as their debut, but the intervening touring has allowed them to be even better at it. Jenny Beth’s lyrics and vocal performance are scouringly energetic, especially in the particularly relentless single and leading track ‘The Answer’. Out on Matador.

Cellular Chaos
Diamond Teeth Clenched

Sold out - sorry!

Dag Nasty
Cold Heart / Wanting Nothing

The session that produced Cold Heart and Wanting Nothing for Dag Nasty’s new 7” saw the Washington DC band’s original lineup of Brian Baker, Shawn Brown, Roger Marbury and Colin Sears reunite in the studio for the first time since 1985. It also marks their return to the legendary Dischord label for the first time since their first two albums.

Charnier
Charnier EP

Minimal / brutal aesthetic post-punk from Charnier, a trio from Brussels. Their self-titled EP is dominated by old-school minimal-wave vocals and rigid rhythms: a sound fighting its way out of its own self-repression. The vinyl itself is beautiful: clear blue with a “black smoke” effect inside, plus a PANish printed PVC outer sleeve. On Weyrd Son.

White Night
Weird Night

Delivering great West Coast fuzz-filled pop-punk, White Night sound a bit spoiled and very catchy. A bit lighter than fellow Californians Wavves, these guys still deliver songs find yourself singing the background ooooohs and aaaaahs to. Weird Night pretty much captures that bored-and-attractive-young-people-in-the-summer vibe.

The Pop Group
The Boy Whose Head Exploded

The Boy Whose Head Exploded is a document of the live sound of The Pop Group at the time of their For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? Peak. Fierce, harshly funky, and scouringly political. As well as the audio (on CD or picture disc), this release also has archival video footage, mostly unreleased. On Freaks R Us.

Leather Towel
Leather Towel IV

Sold out - sorry!

Visitors
Poets End

The materials gathered on Poets End were all originally recorded thanks to the benevolence of John Peel between 1979 and 1981, Peel doing his usual excellent job of documenting crucial slices of the underground. Visitors were an excellent post-punk gang after all. 4 of these recordings have never been released before, and the rest aren't easy to find. 1000 copies.

The Lines
Hull Down

The Lines are something of a cult group, hanging out in that special space where no-one bought their records, but those that did held them close to their hearts. That means that the release of Hull Down will be a huge deal to a few people, being a ‘lost’ third album that has not previously been heard! Hopefully, this premium post-punk might even reach a wider audience… On Acute.

Boys Next Door
Door, Door

Sold out - sorry!

FEWS
Means

This debut release from FEWS borrows the structures and experiments of post-punk, but replaces any brooding seriousness with a playful melodic sensibility. Means, on the Play It Again Sam label, is ten tracks of bold, exuberant and psychedelic guitar music made for both dancing and headphone appreciation.

CTMF
A Song For Kylie Minogue / True

CTMF is yet another group helmed by Billy Childish, the garage rock veteran and super-prolific artist. A Song For Kylie Minogue is taken from their new LP SQ 1, and the B-side True is exclusive to this single. The 7”s are pressed to either transparent red or transparent yellow vinyl, and are released by Damaged Goods.

Sad Lovers & Giants

Sharon Signs To Cherry Red: Independent Women 1979-1985

A big stack of awesome feminine sonic radicals are gathered up on this compilation, from searing post-punk to dub to rockabilly bands. Sharon Signs To Cherry Red: Independent Women 1979-1985 features a whole wonderful subculture, with tracks from Strawberry Switchblade, The Kamikaze Pilots, Dolly Mixture and a great many more over 2 CDs. On RPM.

Whipper
Shit Love

Sold out - sorry!

Eagulls
Ullages

Leeds favourites Eagulls make a slight move away from the hard-and-fast rush of their debut album with this follow-up. Ullages finds the band diving head first into the territory of 1980’s post-punk: think along the lines of early Cure cut with a little shoegaze. I must say, they wear it well. Released on Partisan Records.

Thee Headcoats
The Messerschmitt Pilot's Severed Hand

Thee Headcoats is just one of many Billy Childish projects, but apparently this album is a particular favourite of his. It does capture his garage-punk spirit pretty effectively, with lo-fi production and snotty tunes like ‘Blood Piss and Sperm’. First put out in 1997 and long out of print, The Messerschmitt Pilot’s Severed Hand is now reissued on Damaged Goods.

Papier Tigre
The Screw

Papier Tigre emanate from France, where they have developed a hybrid of mathy angular post-punk and catchy poppiness, with a good dose of let’s-try-this experimentalism in there too. Their latest work on The Screw is tangled, complex stuff, but also instantly understandable on the instinctive level: you just move your body! Out on the Function label.

Colin Potter
The Scythe

Sold out - sorry!

Jack Ketch & The Crowmen
Brimfull of Hate

Sold out - sorry!

AJ Cornell & Tim Darcy
Too Significant To Ignore

Exciting stuff here, as Tim Darcy, the lithe frontman of Ought, teams up with improviser AJ Cornell for a tape of abstract atmospheres and paranoid spoken word. This is the kind of experimentation we’d like to see more indie names getting involved with: it is very interesting to hear Darcy’s lyrical observations in such a different context. Too Significant To Ignore is released by NNA Tapes.

Angry Angles
Angry Angles

Here is the complete recorded work of Angry Angles: 17 songs squeezed onto a single CD / record. Angry Angles was Alix Brown and Jay Reatard, who were a couple at the time of recording. Their fast-blast noise-pop is played with a free-and-frenzied sense of abandon, but the songs themselves are also good and catchy! 5 of these tracks are getting their first release here. On Goner Records.

Zig Zags
Running Out Of Red

Zig Zags are a band still in love with old-school thrash metal, but instead of filtering it into some trendier new genre, they just follow their hearts and start headbanging. Running Out Of Red is classically gnarly and full of thick riffs: it literally rocks. Released on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

Spray Paint

Death Valley Girls

Sold out - sorry!

Greys
Outer Heaven

Greys started out as a noise rock band, and, to an extent, they still are. But on Outer Heaven, the harshness sits alongside notably-melodic tunes and some more dream-pop textures. So what they end up with is both sweet and sour, and also charged with an angry / ecstatic energy: a pretty great formula! On Carpark.

No Ditching
Face Ache

Sold out - sorry!

Vivien Goldman
Resolutionary (Songs 1979-1982)

When she started making music in 1979, Vivien Goldman pulled together the sounds of punk, hip-hop and reggae, with a touch of afro-beat groove for good measure. Resoloutionary (Songs 1979-1982) compiles her work as a solo artist, in The Flying Lizards and in Chantage, sounding fresh and creative in every mode. Out on Staubgold.

The Membranes
Inner Space / Outer Space

The Membranes were so happy with Dark Matter / Dark Energy, their first album in 26 years, that they’ve decided to relive the whole thing with a cohort of friends. Inner Space / Outer Space invites an impressive array of artists, from Einsturzende Neubauten to the Manic Street Preachers, to remix every last track of the original album.

Sievehead
Into The Blue

Sold out - sorry!

The Traditional Fools
Fools Gold

The Traditional Fools is an old, mostly defunct band of Ty Segall’s, wherein he played with David Fox and Andrew Luttrell. No-messing lo-fi garage-punk was what it was all about. This set takes their 7” single release and bundles it with 13 never-before-released tracks, including covers of Love and The Damned: very nice. Fools Gold is out on In The Red.

Heavy Times
Black Sunglasses

Heavy Times are a garage-rock band who are always worth your attention: for this new single on the HoZac label they add raw synth to the mix, where it sits comfortably with the frantic rhythm and Nick Cave-esque vocals on the title cut. The Black Sunglasses single is limited to 500 7” vinyl copies only.

Made In Japan
Instant Hit / You've Never Had It So Good

Made In Japan were unearthed by the HoZac label after hearing their work in New Year’s Evil, a 1980 B-movie. The band never made it far, but it turns out their power-pop / rock is high-quality. Ironically for a single named Instant Hit, neither of these 2 tracks have ever even been released before, let alone become a hit. But that makes this HoZac Archival 7” a unique proposition.

Wire
Nocturnal Koreans

After finishing their self-titled 2015 album, post-punk unit Wire discovered they had material that didn’t fit that album’s themes. So, we get Nocturnal Koreans, a compilation of album offcuts that are as jagged and powerful as anything the band have recorded. The freedom of releasing music outside an album structure lets the band properly experiment with composition and sound.

Wire
Send Ultimate

Sold out - sorry!

Sherwood At The Controls / Volume 2: 1985 - 1990

Adrian Sherwood is a true UK dub pioneer, and his production credits double up as a guide to some of the most interesting underground artists around during his career. Sherwood At The Controls / Volume 2: 1985 - 1990 compiles 16 tracks that Sherwood worked on, including Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Mark Stewart, Ministry, and plenty more premium material.

Deep Throats
Good Bad Pretty

Deep Throats were an old San Francisco band with a heady garage rock sound. This release gathers up their final recordings, previously unheard by the public at large. Good Bad Pretty is released by Castle Face, the essential garage rock imprint of John O’Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, for whom Deep Throats were clearly an influence.

Wax Witches
Memory Painting

Sold out - sorry!

CTMF
SQ 1

CTMF is yet another group helmed by Billy Childish, the garage rock veteran and super-prolific artist: this is estimated to be his 150th LP. SQ 1 is another collection of fiercely joyous punk rock delivered with a snarl and a smile. Vinyl LP or CD packed in a sleeve designed by the band: out on Damaged Goods.

Synthetic ID
Impulses

Synthetic ID are a punk band with a cold, anxious aesthetic: these songs sound like they are constantly looking over their shoulder to check for impending threats. Tight and sharp and excellent. Impulses is released by John O’Dwyer’s (of Thee Oh Sees) essential garage rock imprint Castle Face.

Fruit Bomb
It Don't Matter

Sold out - sorry!

Last Harbour
Paler Cities

Sold out - sorry!

Lifetones
For A Reason

Lifetones was the post-This Heat project of Charles Bullen, in which he worked with Julius Samuel to incorporate West Indian reggae flavours into his music. It’s less bleak and out-there than This Heat, but still retains an unusual, uncomfortable edge: repetition and chants featuring heavily. Remastered reissue on Light In The Attic.

Useless Eaters
Temporary Mutilation

It’s punk, but not as we know it. This vinyl 10” EP on Slovenly records shows Useless Eaters' one-off mixture of low-slung bass, jagged riffs, xylophone melodies and droning free jazz horns. Temporary Mutilation also embraces electronic elements in its quest to develop a unique sound, whilst maintaining that crucial snotty, punk attitude.
