The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this...view item »

A Certain Ratio
Force

Factory records signing A Certain Ratio have teamed up with Mute for a series of reissues and special releases. Here we have the reissue of their 1986 album Force which is such a defining record in their catalogue of leftfield post punk and disco inspired sou...view item »

Moaning
Moaning

Their post-punk almost clocking in at ‘normal’ punk BPM, Moaning are releasing their debut self-titled album. Expect catchy singalong self-deprecating lyrics accompanied by very fuzzy basslines. Moaning is available on CD, cassette, vinyl and super-sexy special edition pink ‘Loser’ vinyl, if that...view item »

Hot Snakes
Audit In Progress

Man, few albums provide an immediate jolt like Hot Snakes' third album. For a rocking good time, this band is pretty tough to beat. Audit In Progress is aggressive, in-your-face, and extremely fun to listen to, coming off sort of like Nirvana with loads of swagger instead of self-conscious angst. While Hot Snakes' sound is loosely classifiable a...view item »

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 w...view item »

Ssleeping Desiress
Ssleeping Desiress

Here’s the self-titled debut LP of Ssleeping Desiress, aka San Francisco coldwave artist and snake Gabriel Ramos. The album follows a 7” released in 2012, so this has been some time coming. Solid pastiche production rounds off the sinister tunes, with rumbling bass, sharp guitars, tinny drum machines and the gaudy, o...view item »

The Just Measurers
Flagellation

There was only ever 300 copies of Flagellation, the one and only LP by The Just Measurers, pressed back in 1983, so it’s no wonder that this really weird DIY punk record has recently been changing hands for the best part of 500 notes. Emotional Response saw fit to reissue the LP, so now you can grab a copy without breaking...view item »

Robert Storey
Come Up And Hear My Etchings

Compilation of songs from underground London musician Robert Storey. Includes tracks released between 1986 and 2016 as Orchestre Murphy, Nobodies, and more. His handle on harmony and vocal delivery recall some of Scott Walker's tamer moments as a solo artist....view item »

The Fall
This Nation’s Saving Grace (Expanded Edition)

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! This Nation’s Saving Grace, an album by The Fall that almost everyone seems to agree is a classic slice of Fall: impressive, given how hard it is to get that fanbase to agree. This i...view item »

Scream
NMC17

Scream’s seminal 1988 LP No More Censorship gets the reissue treatment courtesy of Southern Lord (Earth, Goatsnake). The group’s first album to feature Dave Grohl - on drums, fortunately - NMC17 is as vital a snapshot into the 1980s...view item »

Archie and The Bunkers
Songs From The Lodge

Sibling duo Archie And The Bunkers drop their second LP of organ-billy fun. With one brother on the organ and the other on drums, the pair make a pretty basic racket on Songs From The Lodge, but they do it nicely. Sort of like The Ramones at a funfair. ‘Laura’, unfortunately, is not a ...view item »

Earth Dies Burning
Songs From The Valley Of The Bored Teenager (1981-1984)

As reissue culture finally eats itself we have for your delectation a compilation of Brad Laner’s (Medicine) childhood band. I’m not certain which extra qualities have been seen in their angsty caterwauling that have raised it above the zillions of spotty, sexually frustrated teenagers that have ...view item »

Wax Chattels
Wax Chattels

Auckland’s Wax Chattels self-identify as ‘guitarless guitar music’. This description makes plenty of sense when you get a load of their eponymous debut LP. There’s a lot of rock-isms going on here - the yelpy vocals and pounding drums of a garage rock band, bass licks with a light punk-funk flavour - but ...view item »

Death And The Maiden
Wisteria

A brand new nine-track release from Death and the Maiden called Wisteria. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and will blow you away with its ability to extend your already heightened levels of anxiety from listening to their previous stuff. Expect weird (but kinda cool, I guess) trance-pop-indie-punk. ...view item »

Instant Music
Instant Music

Kraftwerk inspired poppy post-punk from 80s Munich. Instant Music managed to do what so many Kraftwerk imitators failed to do, and made six fun (!) robotic tracks, including one where washing machine instructions are read out over samples of the machine in questions. Remaster released on ...view item »

Outer Himalayan Presents

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, ...view item »

Bambara
Shadow On Everything

Anyone who, while enjoying the more erstwhile recent releases Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, has been yearning for some of the old blood and thunder need look no further than the third LP from Brooklyn trio Bambara.

Circuit Breaker
TV012

Return of London-based industrial duo, brothers Edward and Peter Simpson aka Circuit Breaker. This is their first release on vinyl and the band have been receiving some rave reviews, noteably from wibbly mentalist Julian Cope, who praised the "stark, tripped-out songs, alienated lyrical content and old synthesizer technology."

Häxxan
The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II

Riff rock for dry ice psychlords. Tel Aviv's HÄXXAN ('chasan') offer a slab of weighty, wandering rock music for fans of both the band Fuzz and the sonic tool fuzz. The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II, which is a bad album name, is that warbling wah sound pushed forward w...view item »

The Buttertones
Midnight In A Moonless Dream

Innovative Leisure may be best-known for their more beat-orientated output - BADBADNOTGOOD, Nosaj Thing etc. - but there is some fire in the belly of the LA label too. This is exemplified by The Buttertones, a ramshackle rabble who bear the influence of bands like The Gu...view item »

Burning Britain: A Story Of Independent UK Punk 1980 - 1983

Basically the story of how punk went shit when the likes of the Sex Pistols were replaced by the likes of the Toy Dolls. Incredible to think punk staggered on until 1983 but here is how it happened showcased acres of rare tracks from the era. These Cherry Red nostalgia comps are always great value though and a p...view item »

Bad Times
Streets Of Iron

Bad Times were one of Jay Reatard’s early groups, and their only record stands as a self-titled debut LP that dropped in 2001. A 2002 reissue combined that album with the band’s only live show - an opening slot for Guitar Wolf - but this repress from Goner restores t...view item »

Beta Blockers
Stiff Prescription

Beta Blockers are a Leeds/Sheffield punk band formed from members of The Flex, No Form, Whipping Post and Community. Stiff Prescription is their new 12” on which they blast through 7 songs in 18 minutes. To get their sound, imagine unlikely unions between ...view item »

Boots For Dancing
The Undisco Kidds

The Undisco Kidds by Boots For Dancing is a genuine lost gem of a record. The Scottish funk-punk band disbanded in 1982 after releasing a handful of singles. Fortunately, they left a treasure trove of music committed to tape. The Undisco Kidds, had it been released at the time, would no doubt have made the band...view item »

Uranium Club
Live At Acri Taun

Uranium Club take Italy! The fast and hard Minneapolitans (really? apparently) with the(e) Oh Sees co-sign thrill Fidenza with forty minutes of tight post-punk. You'll wish you'd been there, and maybe if you buy this you can be! I have personally missed their Leeds show and I am FILLED with r...view item »

Bush Tetras
Take The Fall

New York post punk four-piece Bush Tetras are back, a full 38 years after their classic debut single Too Many Creeps. They haven’t been the most prolific of bands, with new album Take The Fall being only their fourth in all that time. The 2018 incarnation of the band sees original bass player Laura Kennedy replaced by Val ...view item »

Ought
Once More With Feeling

Constellation's very own rock 'n' roll band, Ought, came screeching out of the barriers earlier this year, with a record that recalled guitar geniuses such as Slint, the Talking Heads, Television and all other creative riff-makers. 'Once More With Feeling' is the follow-up EP to 'More Than Any Other Day' and doesn't let up on the band's&nbs...view item »

Pere Ubu
Les Haricots Sont Pas Salés 1987-1991

This is the third and final vinyl boxset compiling remastered editions of the Cleveland veterans’ earlier albums. 1988’s The Tenement Year is a particularly solid set of tunes, less spiky and more reflectively mature than earlier work, boasting the clever yet heart-wrenching We Have the Technology. Follow-up Cloudland moves even more...view item »

Hollywood Sinners
Khöme Kakkä

Garage-punk, eh. Never fails. The latest to join the time-honoured tradition of snotty youngsters thumping tubbs and shredding licks are Spanish rockers Hollywood Sinners. But … what’s that you say? They’ve been going since 2002? All three of the band’s members are nearing middle-age? Ahh well, I guess t...view item »

The Cavemen
The Cavemen

The eponymous debut from New Zealand natives who moved themselves to London, The Cavemen is a short sharp burst of joyously childish and catchy punk rock. Song subjects range, as you can probably imagine, from drug abuse to masturbation and general fast-living debauchery. Blood red coloured vinyl LP and CD, reissued on Dirty Wat...view item »

The Cavemen
Nuke Earth

Nuke Earth is the new album by New Zealand garage punk band The Cavemen. Their name gives a few clues about their music - it’s primal, visceral rock ‘n’ roll for beer-fuelled nights. Guaranteed to cure what ails ya, if what ails ya is lack of vintage punk rock. LP and CD on Slovenly....view item »

Simply Saucer
Cyborgs Revisited

If you have a fetish for going back in time an unearthing the lost treasures of yesteryear (Ok, somebody does all the work for us, we just buy it) then jump on this. You've seen the reviews: Early Pink Floyd meets the Stooges with some Hendrix guitar and Sun Ra electro. That's for the mind to decipher, I let the ears do the work. This is guita...view item »

The Unutterable Plus

Special deluxe edition of The Fall’s 2000 album The Unutterable, appearing here with a whole disc of extras!

This album brought Smith and the gang into the 21st century, and the critica...view item »

Slow Riot
Voyeur / Burn In The City

The latest single from Irish band Slow Riot sees them bringing forth two more tracks of moody-but-groovy post-punk. Preoccupations, Eagulls and Savages have all been mentioned in the same breath as the Limerick four-piece, and it’s easy to see why. ‘Voyeur’ is ...view item »

Camberwell Now
The EP Collection

Ocean-inspired weirdery from London's Charles Hayward (The Heat) and an ensemble of friends, including a former BBC sound engineer and a ukulele player. Compiled from a selection of EPs originally released in the late 1980s, this vinyl is just one of The Heat / Camberwell Now's quirky recordings to enjoy a reissue on Modern Classics this year....view item »

Satan's Satyrs
Wild Beyond Belief

This lot Satan’s Satyrs haven’t been going for long but they’ve been raising eyebrows with their brand of unhinged and pounding biker sludge on a series of limited EPs and now they finally unleash their debut LP ‘Wild Beyond Belief!’ with a sleeve which looks recalls the likes of ‘...view item »

Charles Hayward
Smell Of Metal

New 2x12" EP here by ex-This Heat man Charles Hayward, with two new tracks on the first disc and remixes on the second. On side A, 'Lopside' mixes live-sounding drum breaks with a single high-pitched synth chord which chimes out at regular intervals. As the piece progresses the drums are tampered with, cut up and ...view item »

No Babies
Someone To Watch Over Me

Oakland, California’s post-punk no-wavers No Babies just want what we all want - someone to watch over us. And, uh, no babies? Doubtless spoilt for choice of lyrical content with recent political and social developments of their US base of operations, the group are channelling fury and friendship just as effectively as on ...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Eligible Bachelors (Deluxe Edition)

The third Monochrome Set LP, 'Eligible Bachelors', is overlooked in terms of their more renowned previous work, but it is just as good as their first two albums. It includes many witty indie pop classics such as "Jet Set Junta” and "The Ruling Class". Released on coloured vinyl by Optic Nerve, included here is a poster and two bonus tracks...view item »

Dwarves
Are Young and Good Looking

Not only is it their most professional (you can hear their evolution from garage punk) but it's also track by track the most complete. There's less of an all out brute force sound to this one. There is no one Dwarves release that's a must-have. All are pretty good in their own right (though don't start with "Lick It"). This is as good as any pla...view item »

Heavy Metal
The Nietzschean Supermen Of Dustbin Rock

Heavy Metal are a weirdo punk band from Berlin. Quite hard to put a finger on their sound but I’m thinking Truman’s Water meets Jilted John. And odd mix, I know. There’s a real plethora of sounds on The Nietzschean Supermen Of Dustbin Rock. Lyric...view item »

The Monochrome Set
1979-1985: Complete Recordings

The Monochrome Set are one those largely unknown but hugely influential British bands. Their post-punk/indie-pop/art-rock sound has been an influence on the likes of The Smiths, Blur and Franz Ferdinand. The groups leader, Bid, claims that a diet of 17th century poetry and Leadb...view item »

Ramones
End Of The Century

Drafting in Phil Spector to produce the fifth Ramones album seemed like an odd move in 1980, even considering da brudders’ 60s pop obsessions. It was an expensive and unpleasant recording experience, but paid dividends. The stomping Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio?, Rock 'n' Roll High School and the Ro...view item »

Mind Spider
Furies

Mark Ryan’s shapeshifting punk project Mind Spiders (which I hope is an imperative to heed and consider spiders) returns sounding more electronic than ever on concept album Furies, owing to having replaced several band members with drum machines and synths. As a result, the album sounds unusually clean and mild fo...view item »

Shark Toys

Total Control
Typical System

Total Control's debut album 'Henge Beat' was a big hit around the office and remains a regular fixture on my turntable, and this week the wait is finally over for a follow-up from the coldwavey synth punks.

Maximum Joy
I Can't Stand It Here On Quiet Nights: Singles 1981-82

Maximum Joy were a superb collective that haunted Bristol in the early '80s who combined a wide variety of influences  - hip-hop, soul, dub, jazz and Afrobeat -  to concoct a heady brew of sleek danceable pop. There's the same dub inflected atmospheres that would later be made successful by Massive Attack...view item »

Alien She
Feeler

The trio of Katie O'Neill, Aoife Nic Dhonncha and Darragh McCabe has been a noted presence on the Dublin punk scene for a couple of years, but the accomplishment of this debut full-length is a pleasant surprise. There’s the brash energy you’d expect from a band named after a ...view item »

Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

Here's a split 7" by two of Madrid's most lively punk and garage rock bands.

Brought to you on vinyl as red as...view item »

The Astronauts
It's All Done By Mirrors

Originally released in 1983, It’s All Done By Mirrors was the second album by British post-punk band The Astronauts. They were led by the aptly named Mark Astronaut whose lyrical prowess sees him mentioned in the same breath as Bob Dylan and Ray Davies by th...view item »

The Jam
In The City

In The City was the album with which The Jam announced themselves to the world. Paul Weller was just 19 at the time and used the album as a outlet for his teenage frustration.

Hüsker Dü
Savage Young Dü

Something nice for fans of legendary post-punk racketeers Husker Du.

All housed in deluxe set with book of photos and memorabilia. ...view item »

Death Pedals
Death Pedals

Heroic and long standing figures in London DIY punk and alternative rock, Death Pedals need no introduction to anyone who grew up getting their kicks at The Windmill or The Constitution. Sadly though, this release comes alongside the group's demise, ending their noise rock career with a final document of chaos. Farewell....view item »

It’s 2018 now, and with Jawbreaker back on the wagon after two decades in the sun, what better time to reacquaint yourself with the group? That said, if you’re not ready to dive back into the melee of Unfun or Bivouac just yet, maybe try this collection of B-sides and rarities to get the juices flow...view item »

Laughing Hyenas
Merry Go Round

Laughing Hyenas were a great band that deserved more exposure. Larissa Strickland is the master of what I call the "slow burn" rock guitar solo. By this I mean the polar opposite of Van Halen/Satriani flash, something that doesn't grab your attention until it's just about over, but then you realise your subconscious mind has been listening to it...view item »

Laughing Hyenas
You Can’t Pray A Lie

John Brannon has a vocal style that is just plain face melting. His lyrics are none less than great. Larissa Stricklands drug fuelled guitar in combination with one of my all-time favourite rhythm sections, to me, makes this one of the greatest bands of its kind, and its generation. I have a friend who saw them live and said the energy that came...view item »

The Sex Pistols
Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols

You can debate the aesthetics and ethics of the Pistols all you want, but there’s no arguing that their only real album is, well, the bollocks. Where would we be without the results of people being inspired by it, being annoyed by it, or reacting against it? This is all the Pistols you need, really (the odd stray b-side no...view item »

Trisomie 21
Chapter IV

When Trisomie 21’s Chapter IV, Le Je-ne-sais quoi et le presque-rien dropped in the mid-80s, it was very much ahead of its time, especially for the French post-punk scene. While now it just sounds of its time, that doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of reissue, in this case via Dark Entries...view item »

Deaf Wish
Deaf Wish

The Australian noise rock scene has been erupting with bands lately, and Melbourne's Deaf Wish are yet another band who open the curtain with dissonant guitar chords, snarling vocals and a strong dedication to rhythm that keeps the whole thing from falling apart. Their only recording process is to "go to feedback", and these ten songs crackle wi...view item »

This Kind Of Punishment
A Beard Of Bees

New Zealand's finest gloom brothers, the Jefferies, worked their way around post-punk swirl in a variety of bands and had the pleasure of releasing it for classic labels like Xpressway and the esteemed Flying Nun.

Magazine
The Correct Use Of Soap

Devoto and company originally intended this material to be released as a series of five singles (A and B sides) and not as an album (before the record label nixed the idea), so the slightly brighter, more accessible arrangements than those that the band deployed on Secondhand Daylight or Real Life may have reflected that. This is one of those al...view item »

Just freaked the gaffer out by proclaiming I hated this. 'But Clint is tweeting this ASAP!' he barks back at me.

The Apartments main man, Peter Milton Walsh made a big noise in the Brisbane alternative music scene of the late seventies and early eighties.

The Durutti Column
Short Stories For Pauline

This is a great album and I can't understand why it wasn't released at the time.

If you enjoy the DC then snatch this quickly before it's sold out and lost again for years....view item »

Normil Hawaiians
More Wealth Than Money

From 1982, here is Normil Hawaiians’ remarkable double debut album More Wealth Than Money, an experimental post-punk epic that utilised tape loops, strange echoes and kosmischey psych to create four sides-worth of unique sonic space. Never properly released in the UK at the time, now we can relish this great work ...view item »

Ramones
Leave Home

Almost as good as "Ramones". Better production, but the songs are a little 'samey'. For anyone getting into the Ramones, the first four albums are all essential. The guitars are double-tracked, giving it a much fuller (and live sounding) sound than their first record. And their are none of the sound-softening acoustic guitars that they began usi...view item »

Of A Nature Or Degree

In this years incredible (but welcome) news, Manchester's Duds  - a band I described as simply 'ok' when I saw them live have now signed to John Dwyer's Castle Face.

Joy Division
Substance 1977-1980

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on wax. Substance 1977-1980 contains most of your Joy Division favourites, and has been expanded by t...view item »

The Hecks
The Hecks

Pissed Jeans
Shallow

Having been long out of print on vinyl for a number of years, it was only a matter of time before Pissed Jeans’ 2005 punk classic debut LP 'Shallow' got the reissue treatment. Known for its sheer, beautiful discordance, and initially the record that won over Sub Pop, the reissue also includes the addition of their 2004 single ‘T...view item »
