Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

Flat Worms
Into The Iris

Flat Worms are an LA band who move in those vivid psychy circles surrounding Thee Oh Sees (the last Flat Worms album came out on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label) and Ty Segall (he recorded Into The Iris, in his house no less). That means they deliver high levels of energy and lots of fuzzy fun! This little EP is released by God?

Buzzcocks
Love Bites

Love Bites was the second album by melodic Manc punks The Buzzcocks. It was originally released in September 1978, not quite 6 months after their classic debut Another Music In A Different Kitchen. Contains the single 'Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)'. LP and CD, remastered from original tapes on Domino. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Underground Youth
Montage Images Of Lust And Fear

Another one from Fuzz Club Records and I'm please to confirm that yes, it's fuzzy! The Underground Youth are back with their ninth album Montage Images Of Lust And Fear a noisy, rocky, chuggy machine of an album that will tear through anything you put in front of it. There's is a style honed to perfection from extensive touring and a respectable work ethic.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Protomartyr
No Passion All Technique

In a music industry where nothing is secret and even less is sacred, Protomartyr’s debut LP No Passion All Technique has long been a refreshing anomaly. Obviously the group are very big now, but no-one knew this back in 2012 - not them, not us, and certainly not the Urinal Cake label who released this record. A tiny run sold out, and the thing’s been neither re-pressed nor available on streaming services at any point since. This Domino reissue allows you to experience No Passion All Technique without paying megabucks for it on the vinyl black market. It’s a damn sight more raggedy than the band’s subsequent work, but the idiosyncrasies of No Passion All Technique work in its favour. Come and see how the post-punk band we deserve ended up like this.

Human Switchboard
Who's Landing In My Hangar?

Human Switchboard come from Cleveland, Ohio. Their early ‘80s punk leanings are inspired by The Velvet Underground. Who’s Landing In My Hangar?  was their debut studio album from 1981. It was critically successful upon its release, but poor sales at the time means has to go down as one of those lost classics. Fortunately, you have your chance again, though. On Fat Possum

This Kind Of Punishment
In The Same Room

I'd forgotten that This Kind of Punishment released and album after their classic A Beard of Bees. In The Same Room appeared in 1987, three years after A Beard of Bees and showed the band in a more straightforward zone at odds with A Beard of Bees more chamber folk type offerings. The brothers Jeffries are legends in the New Zealand scene and this is one of their most intense deep listening records.      
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Wolfmanhattan Project
Blue Gene Stew

The Wolfmanhattan Project is a nice little noise-rocky effort. After releasing a first single in 2015, the band’s finally pulled themselves together for their debut album Blue Gene Stew. I guess it must be difficult to find time to record if your members are also playing with Sonic Youth, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Gories.

Various
Plastic Dance 1

Andy Votel and Doug Shipton have decided to pool their collective expertise to produce a new series of Plastic Dance compilations, This, the first, is jammed to the gills with sharp and funky electro-jams and arty punk types: I am literally dancing in my chair as I write this. On Finders Keepers / Cache Cache.

The Gluts
Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip

Third LP from Milanese rockers The Gluts here. The thing’s called Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip. It’s out on Fuzz Club, a label that has previously released records by acts with names like Sonic Jesus and The Underground Youth. Yep, that’s right - you better believe that this is some loud-as-hell psych-rock we’ve got our hands on here. Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip will melt faces from 50 feet.

The Fall
The Fall - Singles 1978-2016

Singles 1978-2016 is a career-spanning singles compilation by The Fall. Mark E. Smith’s revolving door collective have released 60-odd albums, if you include live albums and compilations, in their career. This is the first collection to bring together singles from a number of different labels. With 112 tracks over 7 CDs, this is a hefty retrospective, and to endorse its credibility among fans of the band, all tracks have been remastered by Fall engineer Andy Pearce.

Uranium Club
The Cosmo Cleaners

Uranium Club - The Minneapolis Uranium Club, to call them by their full name - drop their third LP via Static Shock (Sheer Mag, Beta Blockers). With a name like that you’d be disappointed if this lot didn’t come through with a set of Devo-ish art-punk. Fortunately The Cosmo Cleaners sees Uranium Club deliver on their promise.

Hash Redactor
Drecksound

Hash Redactor are an indie rock/punk band comprised from Alex McIntyre of Ex-Cult,  Meredith Lones and Charlotte Watson from Nots and George Williford who has played in a number of Memphis bands. Drecksound is their debut full-length LP. Expect some energised, avant guitar interplay backed-up by a solid rhythm section. LP on Upset The Rhythm.
  • Genre(s):

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.

s t a r g a z e feat. Greg Saunier & Andre De Ridder
Instruments

A rare prospect indeed this one: not only do we have big famous conductor Andre de Ridder working with Greg Saunier from Deerhoof, we have them working together on a chamber orchestral reimagining of the third album by Fugazi, In On The Kill Taker. A surprising set-up then, but with an astonishingly successful delivery. Instruments is released by Transgressive.

Straight Arrows
Another Day In The City

A Record Store Day 2019 special 7” single from the acclaimed Straight Arrows, with their rambunctious cover of the British Jets’ murder-punk classic ‘Another Day In The City’, while on the reverse is a brand new track in the shape of ‘Black & Blue’. Follows on from their 2018 studio album.

Johnny Thunders
Que Sera, Sera (Resurrected)

This Resurrected edition of Johnny Thunders’ often maligned 1985 album Que Sera Sera aims to put right the reputation. One of the coolest rock’n’roll/punk figures of all time, Thunders’ penultimate album before his 1991 death comes on purple and white vinyl, new sleeve notes and a 12”x24” lyric insert.

Thou / Ragana
Let Our Names Be Forgotten

Thou and Ragana join forces for a record in remembrance of those who lost their lives in the 2016 Ghost Ship fire. Both bands here bring a darkly majestic blend of black metal, doom, sludge and Americana to new split Let Our Names Be Forgotten. Ragana’s tunes are a tad more melodic, while Thou’s are unrelenting Gothic drudges. A fantastic and necessary record.

Mekons
Deserted

Look everyone, it's Mekons, but now with brand new material! The inventive Leeds punk / post-punk group went to Joshua Tree in California in order to record Deserted (it's a desert, geddit?), but managed to avoid absorbing too much of the ghost of U2 into their sound. It’s brand new Mekons guys, what more do I need to say? On Glitterbeat.
  • Genre(s):

Gang of Four
Happy Now

Post-punk icons Gang Of Four return with their ninth studio album HAPPY NOW, funded by their considerable fanbase via PledgeMusic. Already trailed by a download-only EP last year titled Complicit and a single a few months back ‘Paper Thin’, this new effort, available on CD as well as vinyl, promises the same political urgency as ever. 

Witching Waves
Persistence

London DIY post-punks Witching Waves have been steadily building up a cult following owing to their high-energy live set and constant gigging. Their new album Persistence finds them in an assertive mood, with confidence gained from previous records Fear Of Falling Down and Crystal Cafe. On Specialist Subject.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

NONN
NONN

Fuzz Club begin to sonically diversify the fuzz with new band NONN, who cover coldwave and post-punk territory reminiscent of Suicide and New Order. If you're expecting endless psych dirges, then you'll probably be refreshed by this debut release from a band that's taking the label to fresh places. There's more to life than psych??
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Crows
Silver Tongues

Its Crows! The debut Crows album is Silver Tongues, and it is arriving any day now. The Crows sound is fairly gnarly post-punk, with low vocals, grinding basslines and distorted riffs. Not quite stoner, but with a good dose of motorik momentum driving the tunes. Crows. Silver Tongues is released by Bailey Records.

Housewives
Twilight Splendour

Housewives have made the classic move for their second album, moving from a guitar-dominated sound to a more electronic presentation. With this change has come an increased interest in What Technology Means These Days, which makes for some strong lyrical-sonic juxtapositions. Twilight Splendour is out on Blank Editions.

The Durutti Column
Obey The Time

Factory Benelux could probably be re-issuing the Durutti Column records until the end of time if they so wished. This time it's the turn of their 8th album Obey the Time. The album saw leader Vini Reilly explore electronic textures influenced by the acid house explosion of the time. There's an extra disc of live recordings from a show at Whitworth Hall in 1990.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Metro Crowd
Planning:

Ah the commute. The daily mass migration of workers away from their homes, and away from their loved ones. You either love it.. actually you probably just hate it. Commuters! Metro Crowd see your struggle, your stress, your anxiety. Planning: sees the band channeling those feelings into industrial post-punk reminiscent of Chrome and Cabaret Voltaire.

Pozi
PZ1

Pozi are a London trio formed of violin, bass and drums. On their debut PZ1 released on PRAH Recordings, they channel their emotions into their voices and their instruments, making for a ramshackle post-punk din. Their press release compares them to both Sleaford Mods and IDLES which at this point is probably a bit of a no-no. 

Martha
Love Keeps Kicking

County Durham’s DIY punks and melodic racket-makers, Martha, are back with their third album, Love Keeps Kicking. On this album, they want to fight back against the increased visibility of fascism whilst our world spirals down the plughole. The album also deals with heartbreak and the bit afterwards where you get over it. A big dose of noisy positivity. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Steven R. Smith
A Sketchbook Of Endings

Steven R. Smith presents his first solo album under his own name (rather than as Ulaan Markhor or Ulaan Passerine) in eight whole years. A Sketchbook Of Endings is a suite of fifteen instrumental pieces that manage to establish whole worlds in mere minutes. Lots of semi-abstract guitar and big sweeping moods. On Soft Abuse.

Peter Simpson
Peter Simpson

Sometimes, things are divisive. You see, there's a certain spread. A good one. And it has managed to completely own this idea. But I'm not going to mention. Not when describing Peter Simpson's confidently wacky vocals. He over pronounces every word in a way utterly unique to him. On this self-titled mini album accompanies himself on simple synth lines to create an utterly bizarre pop music. 

David Chesworth
Layer On Layer

Reissue of Australian David Chesworth's second album Layer On Layer. After his first, a mostly solo affair, Chesworth started to work with other musicians to bring his sophomore to life. Bringing together punk and funk musics in an incredibly detailed, dense, but quite relaxed package. Sounds the work of a musician more mature than the 21 years Chesworth had at the time. Om Chapter Music.

Nyah Fearties
A Tasty Heidfu'

Nyah Fearties released this scraggy old thing in 1986, and it has been a secret jewel of the Glasgow underground music scene ever since. The Nyah Fearties sound is kind of Celtic-folk via post-punk and (genuinely) industrial percussion. All very Scottish. Now a proper full vinyl reissue, thanks to the Good Energy label!

The Fall
The Wonderful And Frightening Escape Route To The Fall

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

Kevin Harrison
Inscrutably Obvious

Early days DIY electronic music from 1981! Kevin Harrison released his one and only LP album in that year, and it’s been an underground find ever since then. Kevin is making songs here, but the restrictions of bedroom production and the bounties of a unique sensibility make these songs suitably somewhat weird. Grand. First time reissue, on Superior Viaduct.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Wipers
Is This Real?

Unquestionably Portland's most well-loved punk group, the Wipers formed in the late 1970s and in 1980 released their debut LP, "Is This Real?"- twelve songs of stabbing, jittery guitar, snapped vocals, and unabashed teen angst. Full of desperation and yearning, the LP has stood as a blueprint for wretched youth for over 25 years. In the early 1990s "Is This Real?" was given mainstream attention when Nirvana covered two tracks off the record and Cobain announced it was one of the primary influences on his group. While it was reissued on compact disc and available as a part of the Wipers Boxed Set (Zeno), this is the first time "Is This Real?" has been available on vinyl in the U.S. since its initial release.

Jason Williamson
Happy Days

Sleaford Mods lead barker Jason Williamson is back with his third book of stories and things following his lyrics book Grammar Wanker and Slabs From Paradise. This time it's about really grim things like dogging places, shit pubs, appalling housing, twats, people fighting, lowlife scum, arses, really bad precincts, bricks, dogs on housing estates, people sniffing....all that kind of stuff. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Corners
The Floor

The final release from Los Angeles stalwarts Corners. The Floor is an EP of nervy and anxious post punk anchored by cold guitars and atmospheric synths. The band have now moved onto solo pursuits, but their work together is well worth remembering. The Floor is also the first release on Light in the Attic's Jack Sills' new label, Day End. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

A. Swayze & The Ghosts
Suddenly

Scrappy and belligerent garage-punk group from Australia, treading that sloppy-tight balance with a real sense of vigour and gnarled energy. Yelped vocals, scathing guitar lines, this isn’t reinventing the wheel, but it knows what it is and does it well. A. Swayze & The Ghosts are a promising young band and this 12” single titled ‘Suddenly’ comes out via Rough Trade.

FACS
Lifelike

‘Lifelike’, the second album from Chicago-based trio FACS - a group formed in the wake of band Disappears - has its heart in the ongoing legacy of post-punk, comprised of bass riffage and effect tamperings, it’s a music which strips away and then plays around with what's left, minimal but purposeful and open with an attention placed as highly on tone as on might.

The Fall
The Rough Trade Singles

Superior Viaduct reissue a collection of seminal early singles from The Fall. All released in the first few years of the 1980s by Rough Trade, these eight studio originals and two live versions snapshot a band in their element. Mark E. Smith & co made so many essential pieces in their time, but even by The Fall’s standards the ten tunes here stand as some of the definitive band’s definitive work. Contains, among other things, ‘Totally Wired’.

The Fall
Mark E Smith’s Personal Holiday Tony Tapes

It has started. Ozit Dandelion the label that brought you that fake Martin Hannett compilation have now been given access to a mixture of live and studio recordings from the late and great Mark E. Smith and his the Fall. We all know it will be utter rubbish barrel-scraping stuff but it's the Fall innit? Expect plenty more similar releases over the coming years.   

Joy Division & New Order
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

It’s never before been possible to study the trajectory of post-punk pioneers Joy Division and synth-rock sequel New Order in one sitting. The technology simply hasn’t been there. You’d need some kind of ‘play list’ - what a notion. But now, thanks to the latest developments, New Order are proud to present Total - a partial history of both.

Stano
Content To Write In I Dine Weathercraft

Stano was a member of the Dublin punk crew The Threat, but when he went solo in 1983, he produced some surprisingly beyond-punk sounds. Content To Write In I Dine Weathercraft is an impressive work of improvisation and experimentation made with a close bunch of collaborators, with post-punk elements merging with spoken-word. Good to see this one get reissued.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Coathangers
The Devil You Know

Garage rockers The Coathangers have been around for a while, making unpolished punk for over a decade. Based on first single Bimbo, it sounds like The Devil You Know is actually going to stray away a bit from the band we know. The three girls seem to have taken a deep breath and embraced a somewhat more polished sound. Let's see how it pans out.

Circuit Breaker
Hands Return To Shake

If you can imagine the vocal stylings of ‘80s goth-punks such as Bauhaus and Killing Joke and the angular new wave of Wire paired with the pristine synth work and dissonant electronic sounds of acts such as Autechre and Pan Sonic then you’re close to imagining the sound of sibling duo Circuit Breaker. Their debut album Hands Return To Shake will please fans of industrial rock, new wave and IDM alike.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Hot Water Music
The New What Next

Florida punk rock outfit Hot Water Music gifted their album The New What Next to the world in 2004, and now its back, in a nice new vinyl re-pressing. Notably this was the record where the band started bringing falsetto harmonies into their melodic emo-tinged songwriting. Reissued for the band’s 25th birthday by Epitaph.

Low Life
Downer Edn

Second album by Aussie punks Low Life after their killer 2014 debut. Although Downer Edn ("Edition" in Strayan) features arguably less intense cover art, the music will match your expectations. Think Protomartyr but darker and more urgent, accelerated sun-bleached post-punk. So if you're into that, this album might actually not be a downer at all. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

EXEK
A Casual Assembly

A speedy follow-up the their 2018 LP, Ahead Of Two Thoughts, Australian arty types, EXEK release A Casual Assembly EP. The music within could be compared to the work of Jah Wobble, Laurie Spiegel and The Gift by The Velvet Underground. The music is supplied by synth strings, bass and trumpet with narration that recalls Samuel Beckett and Robert Ashley, this could also soundtrack a film by Derek Jarman or Stanley Kubrick. Fans of Normil Hawaiians, Jenny Hval and Harmonia should check this out. LP on W.25th

Rema-Rema
Fond Reflections

This has got to be good news for a certain breed of early 4AD worshippers. Rema Rema made one EP back in 1980 before splitting up and ending up in such bands as Renegade Soundwave, The Wolfgang Press and Adam and the Ants. Fast forward to now and some pretty committed people have got together to try to stitch together what would have been their debut LP by way of live recordings, alternate takes and rehearsal recordings.

Television Personalities
Some Kind Of Trip: Singles 1990-1994

Some Kind Of Trip collects the singles released by Television Personalities in the later part of the career, from 1990-1994. Here you'll find 26 tracks, including a number of remixes, such as 'Strangely Beautiful', ‘Far Away And Lost In Joy’ and ‘Goodnight Mr Spaceman’. The historians among you will be pleased to hear the tracks are sequenced chronologically.

Thou / Hirs
Untitled

Feast Of Tentacles (Moloch, Rot In Hell) with a lovely little record here. This untitled vinyl sees the mighty Thou join forces with Philly queer-grind group The HIRS Collective for a selection of Nirvana covers. It’s great fun hearing the likes of ‘In Bloom’ and ‘Territorial Pissings’ blown up to such gargantuan proportions.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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.  
  • Genre(s):

Jackson Politick
Psycho-Mania / Well Adjusted Australians

Jackson Politick is the musical project of the wonderfully named American, Andy Human, Human by name human by nature, I guess. Psycho-Mania b/w Well Adjusted Man sees Human juggling with influences ranging from Roxy Music to Chrome to mid-period Television Personalities, whilst mixing lo-fi sounds and punk attitude lyrics. 7” single on Market Square.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Potty Mouth
SNAFU

US East Coast rockers Potty Mouth finally laying down their first album in over 5 years. SNAFU sounds mostly like the soundtrack you’d expect for a 2000’s feel-good movie: poppy fuzzy guitars, tasty harmonizing vocals, and great grooves, but all of it soaked with just enough of that indie sauce to make it properly palatable.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Hot Water Music
Caution

Hot Water Music’s sound is one of gruff force, but it’s a force rich with melody. The band are going to be celebrating 25 years together next year with a world tour and reissue campaign. 2002’s ‘Caution’ is one of three LP’s being re-released by the label Epitaph, a 13-track LP of tune-driven punk rock.  

Muscle Barbie
Muscle Barbie

This self-titled full length from Muscle Barbie is the band's second release and promises more of the same from their first release on tape All Your Stuff. This release has been described as being super super limited, so if you want one you need to act fast! Again, only available on vinyl LP, and released on Harbinger Sound.

A-Moms
Strawberry Cheesecake / Modern Noise

Third Man aficionados among you will have spotted the label’s recent Algebra Mothers compilation A-Moms = Algebra Mothers. That LP was an odds-and-sods collection focussed on long-defunct Detroit punks A-Moms. The band only released one single when together, the 1979 split ‘Strawberry Cheesecake’/‘Modern Noise’, so Third Man have decided to complete the circle and reissue that one as well. This is chaotic, maniacal new wave from a group who count Pere Ubu among their fans.

Future Glue
Devil's Pulpit EP

Glasgow group Future Glue have the sleazy twang of americana, but the bark and bite of post-punk. Like, say, The Cramps or The Gun Club, they observe that the gap between the two need not be large, and maneuver between these styles with a debauched sense of swagger, as displayed on four-tracker ‘Devils Pulpit EP’.

Big Gold Dreams: A Story Of Scottish Independent Music 1977-1989

They make good box sets down at Cherry Red Records, and their latest is another feather in the cap. Big Gold Dreams focuses on the Scottish post-punk explosion of the ‘70s and ‘80s. This means that there are tonnes of your favourite bands on here - The Jesus And Mary Chain, Cocteau Twins, Aztec Camera, you know how it goes. Big Gold Dreams also features informative essays and band histories in its accompanying 70-page booklet.

Cellar Doors
Cellar Doors

Cellar Doors are a band from San Francisco, but they have connections closer to home as they are managed by Stephen Holt of Inspiral Carpets. Their music is rooted in psychedelia with elements of indie rock and post-punk. All-in-all, a melodic, powerful and danceable proposition, I reckon. Their eponymous debut is released on LP and CD via Hear Here.

Drenge
Strange Creatures

The Deputy Leader Of The Labour Party’s favourite band return with their third LP and first full-length since 2015’s Undertow. Strange Creatures is a ten-track affair that sees Drenge’s muscular brand of hardcore indie-rock refigured for the night-time. Not in a they’ve-gone-disco sense - in the eerie, uncanny, nocturnal sense.
  • Label(s):
  • BMG

Ramones
Ramones

1, 2, 3, 4! As one of the most influential documents in rock’n’roll history, Da Brudders’ 1976 debut hardly warrants an introduction. Still, it’s always a shock to hear how raw and minimal the Craig Leon-produced album is. And all done and dusted in 29 minutes, baby. This LP reissue is cut from analogue masters, decently priced too.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Clash
London Calling

London Calling was the third album by The Clash and was originally released in 1979. It is widely regarded as the band’s greatest moment and one of the best albums to ever be committed to tape. It comprises a range of styles from punk to reggae and ska to rockabilly and dealt with many issues of the day such as unemployment and racial conflict. Essential.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

N0V3L
NOVEL

N0V3L’s NOVEL EP comes from a novel place. Rather than seeing themselves as a band, the Vancouver group style themselves as more of a ‘self-sustaining creative collective’. DIY-ing it to the max - the group live in the same house and do all the legwork when it comes to producing and recording their own music - pays dividends for their brand of sparky post-punk. Think Gang Of Four, Preoccupations, that sort of thing.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Ruts
The Crack

The Crack was the first album by The Ruts. It was originally released in 1979. The band spliced together punk and reggae and were loved by John Peel. It contained the singles Babylon’s Burning and Something That I Said. The band’s lyrics were aimed at social and political problems, none more than the track Jah War, which criticised unjust actions of the police. 40th anniversary remastered vinyl reissue, cut at Abbey Road.

Horror Section
Horror Section

My mind is blank when I read 'grindhouse cinema inspired punk-rock'. Honestly, nothing. If you're like me and your mind is also completely and utterly void of what this kinda' clutching-at-straws genre could be, then maybe we should all listen to Horror Section's self titled debut release and join the other 1990 Horror Section fans on Facebook and dance around to this record. Available on vinyl LP and CD and released on Eccentric Pop Records.

Vintage Crop
Company Man

Vintage Crop hail from south-eastern Australia, and as their urgent and energetic punk sound may suggest, they don’t hang around. Following hot on the heels of their last LP, New Age, comes Company Man, an EP dealing with the mundane life of suit wearers and discrediting the corporate world. 7” EP on Drunken Sailor.
  • Genre(s):

Entracte Twist
Entracte Twist

Self-titled album on Requiem Pour Un Twister from Parisian band Entracte Twist. Post-punk in the 70s style which means: jangly guitars, driving drums and a tasteful amount of synthesiser. This is the sort of music that is described as being effortlessly cool, which certainly isn't helped by the band singing in the language of effortlessly cool, French. 

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.

Raise Your Voice Joyce: Contemporary Shouts From Contemporary Voices

Cool compilation from Static Shock Records (Beta Blockers, Sievehead) here.

Sneaks
Highway Hypnosis

Really impressive album from Sneaks here. Highway Hypnosis may be a record from D.C. with its roots in post-punk, but this is as far as any similarities with Minor Threat, Dischord Records go. Sneaks has produced a record of lo-fi hip-hop, leftfield pop and upstart feminist punk. Such is the scope of this LP that comparisons to Shabazz Palaces, Dean Blunt, Inga Copeland and M.I.A. all feel right. Very cool.

Buzzcocks
Another Music In A Different Kitchen

The debut album by vitally important UK punks The Buzzcocks, reissued. Another Music in a Different Kitchen tears straight through 11 songs, immediately establishing that this was a band to get excited about upon original release in 1978. Now livingly restored and remastered from the original tapes. Even more exciting than that is that it comes with a carrier bag.

Mission Of Burma
Vs

Post-punk survivors Mission Of Burma are still going strong, god bless ‘em, but here we have an opportunity to look back at their earliest days, with a reissue of their 1982 debut. Vs sounds damn rad, scratchy and furious and driving and abrasive. The reissue on Fire comes as CD or LP, and a few bonus tracks are thrown in to sweeten the deal.

NONN
XVII

Second album of brooding post-punk and gnarled electronics from Scandinavian artist Christian Eldefors, also known as NONN. Following his debut record last year, Eldefors has now roped in a full band - one member being his brother Alexander - in doing so creating a denser and more claustrophobic sound. It's a cohesive but varied record, switching from taught menace to goth inflected 80s style pop.

Amebix
Monolith: The Power Remains

This Amebix record has had a slightly tricky release history (something to do with label wranglings), but the important thing is that this slab of classic heavy rock is now properly available again. What’s more, this reissue of Monolith: The Power Remains adds one side of demos and one side of a live gig in Bath, Somerset. Fresh liner notes too! Just 1000 2LP copies out there.

Bikini Kill
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah EP

You cannot beat a bit of proper riot grrl. Here's a re-release of Bikini Kill’s second EP Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, featuring both the original tracks, and on the b-side, seven previously unreleased recordings of live shows and tapes. Vinyl that's better than you and that will kick your arse.

The Callas with Lee Ranaldo
Trouble and Desire

The Callas are a post-punk band from Greece who are one part of an arty, multi-media factory. Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo felt compelled to work with them after being drawn into their whole thing. Trouble And Desire is their first album together, however they have previously worked on a soundtrack for a film made by the arty collective called The Great Eastern. CD on Dirty Water.

The Rebel
Riding In The Sun / Why Must I Pay

Country Teasers mainman Ben Wallers is also The Rebel, and it is under this guise that he does some of his most fascinating work. Outsider punk that peels the genre apart and shows you some of its guts and contradictions. Here The Rebel presents two tracks on a seven inch single on Jack White’s Third Man.

D.U.D.S.
Immediate

Has a record ever been a co-release between three labels before? Well LP on Red Wig / Opal Tapes / Et Mon Cul C'est Du Tofu? are all involved in putting this out but it's the involvement of Opal Tapes that is the headline here. The North East England label usually specialises in the sort of esoteric electronica and techno Ant writes about but D.U.D.S are firmly in the post punk category. Their blend of the Fall and Liquid Liquid certainly has dancefloor impact and this album (whoever is releasing it) should not be missed.   

Bloody Head
Freedom​ / ​Mobility ​/ ​Speed

Freedom/Mobility/Speed, what more could a young boy need? Nottingham’s Bloody Head make good on the first two promises here - there’s freedom and mobility (of sorts) to their thrashy, doomy metal style. Speed, however, is not something you’ll find on this pleasingly sludgy LP, though ‘Full Of Nothing’ has some Pissed Jeans-esque momentum to it.

Public Service
I'm Gonna Kill That Man

Public Service’s brand of rock is a scathing and caustic one, full of thudding rhythm and yelped voice. There’s tunes in the carnage, sometimes punk-chant sometimes melodic. ‘I’m Gonna Kill That Man’ is the groups first studio recording, a three-track EP that unflinchingly gazes upon power dynamics but does so with a thrilling mixture of intense fury and intense anxiety.

This Heat
Live 80 - 81

It sometimes feels incongruous to think of This Heat as a live act, so fiercely experimental were (and still are) they as a studio band. But they can also make a ferocious racket live, as these recordings of an early-80s European tour will testify. Copping recordings from a microphone near the sound desk, this reissue of Live 80/81 comes remastered from the initial analog tapes.

Alison Statton & Spike
Bimini Twist

After Young Marble Giants and Weekend, Alison Statton's third major contribution to proto indie were her collaborations with Spike. In fact the duo had already worked together in Weekend but this collaboration is somewhat lesser known. After a few years of doing normal family type stuff the duo have reconvened for further recordings. Anyone who has heard Statton's voice knows that it's a beautiful unique thing so it will be lovely to hear it again after all these years.  

The C.I.A.
The C.I.A.

The 1,436,893th record that Ty Segall has had a hand in this year drops on In The Red (Chain And The Gang, Kid Congo And The Pink Monkey Birds). The C.I.A.'s eponymous record (try Googling it) finds Segall joined by his wife Denee and The Cairo Gang’s Emmett Kelly for an album that is part-Velvet Underground garage meditation, part-Suicide-style electro-punk and part-post-Crass abandon.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

This Heat
Repeat / Metal

Despite dropping in 1993 - long after trailblazing avantists This Heat had split - Repeat/Metal was recorded during the fruitful period between the band’s 1979 debut LP and 1981’s Deceit. Even by their standards, these twenty-minute opuses broke new ground for the group. Drawing on everything from music concrete to dub reggae to post-punk, you can see why This Heat were a favourite of the late John Peel. Now issued on vinyl for the first time ever.

Public Practice
Distance is a Mirror

Distance Is A Mirror is the debut EP from a bunch of New Yorkers calling themselves Public Practice. Their approach takes post-punk, disco, Talking Heads and Yellow Magic Orchestra to make a funky, danceable sound with dark yet optimistic lyrics on subjects as simple or as complicated as love. Vocalist Drew Citron’s delivery is perhaps at odds with the excitable band behind him. 12” EP or CD on Wharf Cat Records.

Annie Anxiety
Soul Possession

Check out the personnel on this one: for her 1984 debut album, Annie Anxiety managed to assemble members of Crass, African Head Charge, Flux Of Pink Indians and more, all under the production oversight of the legendary Adrian Sherwood. Soul Possession is the result, a weird and amazing industrial dub odyssey that still sounds like little else. This DAIS reissue is the first vinyl release for this album in three decades.

Champagne Dub
Drops

Capitol K’s Faith And Industry drops an LP by psychedelic groove-jazzers Champagne Dub. Given that the band contains members of Melt Yourself Down, Acoustic Ladyland and The Comet Is Coming it was always likely that Drops would be an intense affair. The band’s trick is to keep things fun even when it gets heavy - ‘Gatito Ven’, for instance, combines the weight of Free Nelson Mandoomjazz with the propulsive rhythms of Boredoms’ drum period.

Wire
154

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

Shame
Songs of Praise

Songs of Praise is the debut LP from Londoner five-piece Shame, who've gained traction in the South London gig scene. Lively and insistent post-punk from an energetic young band who don’t shy away from politics and confrontational lyrics. Available on CD, cassette tape or vinyl (regular black or sky blue). On Dead Oceans.

WALL
Untitled

‘Untitled’ is the debut release from WALL. Described as a genuinely sought after act on the New York underground scene, the record contains a number of solidly constructed pieces of hard hitting music that has taken them from unknown to very much, known! A mix of punk and hardcore, and is available on Vinyl LP and CD.
