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.  

John Paul
No Filter

Harbinger Sound gets back into the grimy seam from which Sleaford Mods came and comes out with John Paul (no relation to the former Pope), whose No Filter is a cynical journey through small-town shit-time England, with witty slam-poetry wordplay bluntly delivered over simple electronic backing. Yes m8. On Harbinger Sound.

Duds
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. They update the short, sharp, shock of the likes of the Fire Engines and Josef K with jittery post punk moves and now sit alongside their heroes on this legendary label. This could be your new favourite and they are local (ish).

Pussyliquor
What Of It?

Empowerment over shame is the name of the game for young Brighton five-piece Pussyliquor on new EP What Of It? The disgrace of toxic misogyny and social inequality are what led them to come together and pound out this provocative, alt-rocky punk music; in their own words: “Inequality cannot last / So shove your archaic views up your arse”.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Fucked Up
Dose Your Dreams

Fucked Up have pulled out all the stops to make, arguably, the album of their career with Dose Your Dreams. Whilst it kicks off in a familiar punk fashion, they then take unexpected turns into psychedelia, groove work-outs and even doo-wop before is brought to a close with a Krautrock epic. LP and CD on Merge.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Surfbort
Friendship Music

Surfbort are a Brooklyn band who take their influences from ‘80s US punk bands. This is in-your-face rock ‘n’ roll that is delivered with love. Friendship Music has been released through a joint venture between Fat Possum and Cult Records, the label owned by Julian Casablancas. Available on LP or CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Street Sects
The Kicking Mule

Debut album, End Position showed influences such as Chrome and Nine Inch Nails. Street Sects, the Austin, Texas post-punk industrial screamers change gear for album number two, The Kicking Mule. Here, they use Roxy Music, Brian Eno and Bowie’s Berlin trilogy as inspiration for it’s follow up, The Kicking Mule. there’s still plenty of rattling industrialism, screaming and Nine Inch Nails-ness, though. LP and CD on The Flenser.

Pere Ubu
Final Solution

Reissue of the second and arguably best single by Pere Ubu. Controversially titled, Final Solution was informed by the bleakness of the band’s hometown, Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-seventies. It’s a prime slab of noisy, American punk rock and pretty essential to any record collection. Limited to 1000 copies, 7" on Fire, b/w Cloud 149.

Qlowski
Pure As Fear

Maple Death Records (The Wound, His Clancyness) with a dose of short, sharp garage rock here. Qlowski impressed with their eponymous 2016 cassette, even making it onto a Bandcamp article about the best releases of the year ('so far'- it was June at the time). Follow-up EP Pure As Fear sees the Italian group everything that made that the first record so good and run with it. That means influences of Aussie punk, golden-age CBGB’s and Killing Joke are still clearly audible.

Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers
Down To Kill – Complete Live At The Speakeasy

There he goes, old Johnny Thunders. Jabbing his finger. Thrashing his guitar. Cooking his … never mind. The old reprobate was at his iconoclastic best one night in March 1977 at London’s Speakeasy. With his Heartbreakers in tow the former New York Dolls man sang a few tunes and mercilessly bated his audience. Down To Kill - Live At The Speakeasy became one of the more infamous live LPs in rock history after its initial release in 1982, but some extra recordings from the gig were discovered a few years ago. As such, this new Complete version runs to fifteen tracks as opposed to the original’s ten.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Uranium Club
Human Exploration LP

Static Shock bring the debut from these Minneapolis punks to vinyl LP for the first time. Uranium Club’s Human Exploration LP was previously only available as a hard to find cassette. The group’s itchy, nervous punk music blends no wave and hardcore influences into a different sound entirely. The guitars are cheap and the vocals shouted.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Big’n
Knife of Sin

‘90s noise-rock luminaries Big’N have got the band back together in recent years. Their latest EP, the six-track Knife Of Sin, shows their powers to be undimmed. This is tortured, needling hardcore noise of the Jesus Lizard school. Steve Albini’s had a hand in this one, which seems about right.

Neurotic Fiction
Pulp Music

Or do they mean: Neurotic Music, by Pulp Fiction? They don’t, but this Norman Records™ blurb writer may have initially read it thus. Anyway, Bristolian quartet Neurotic Fiction bring plenty of spark to their debut LP Pulp Music (got it right this time). The band’s brand of jangly indie-punk sees them slot in nicely alongside Fresh and Muncie Girls on the Specialist Subject roster.

Redd Kross
Teen Babes From Monsanto

Teen Babes From Montasano was the critically acclaimed second EP by Redd Kross, originally released in 1984. The EP features covers of songs by Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Kiss and The Shangri-Las along with one original composition. Jeff and Steve McDonald were a relatively baby-ish 21 and 17 respectively when they made this EP. LP and CD on Merge.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Steeple Remove
Vonal-Axis

Train a microscope on London’s Fuzz Club and you’ll find the fuzz not consisting of noisy psych music itself, but rather of a sheer density of releases. They’re practically fuzzin’ ‘em out at the moment, and the latest is by aloof French veterans Steeple Remove - magnificent, shimmering guitars leading them between shoegaze, post-punk, kosmische and I’d say a dollop of prog.

Johnny Mafia
Princes De L’amour

French garage guys Johnny Mafia announce themselves to the wider world with second album Princes De L’amour, a high-energy rush of frenzie punk underpinned with solid songcraft. It’s not the most original of sounds, but it is hard to deny the bouncing, grinning appeal of garage-punk done right like this. Out on Dirty Water.

Redd Kross
Hot Issue

Redd Kross are a Californian punk/power pop band led by brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald. Hot Issue gathers together rarities and other unreleased nuggets from the band’s archive. The songs date from 1980, when they were known as Red Cross, and go as far as 2007. Reissue vinyl LP and CD on Merge.

The Intelligence
Live In San Francisco

The latest release in Castle Face’s Live In San Francisco series comes courtesy of The Intelligence. Lars Finberg and his band of Seattle punks tear through a bunch of live-wire tunes that take in everything from Country Teasers to Wire. Recorded in a tiny basement beneath a vintage clothes store and coming with the John Dwyer seal of approval, this one is American as apple pie.

This Heat
Made Available

Always ones for a good pun, serial groundbreakers This Heat have compiled their 1977 Maida Vale sessions for John Peel on this Made Available compilation. The eight tracks here may be the group’s earliest public recordings - they were taped fully two years before their self-titled debut LP saw daylight - but the mixture of New Wave, post-punk, music concrete, electroacoustic music and about a million other genres demonstrate that the group were light-years ahead of the competition even at this early stage.

Siglo XX
Dreams Of Pleasure

Siglo XX were a punk/goth group from the city with the greatest name in the world, Genk, Belgium. The band were active from 1979 to 1991 and took their influences from Joy Division and other Factory Records acts. Dreams of Pleasure was originally released in 1983. 12” EP on Onderstroom, limited to 300 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Siglo XX
The Art Of War

The Art Of War was the third release by Belgian band Siglo XX. It was originally released in 1982. The band fall into the punk rock drawer of the big musical filing cabinet with additional dividers labelled ‘Gothic Rock’, ‘Coldwave’ and ‘Darkwave’. For fans of Joy Division. 12” Ep on Onderstroom, limited to 300 copies.

Fatty Cakes and The Puff Pastries
Fatty Cakes and The Puff Pastries

Riotous queer-core and vibrant punk pop from San Franciscan five piece Fatty Cakes and The Puff Pastries who play dayglo riot-grrl inspired pop with serious messages about gender and body image. Fans of the B52s, the Gravy Train and Le Tigre should be taking careful notes.    

The Fall
58 Golden Greats

There aren’t many bands who could release a career-spanning retrospective and call it 58 Golden Greats without stretching the truth as to the number of songs or the golden greatness of the music. The prolific nature of The Fall means that they can, however. This trans-label overview was compiled by Daryl Easlea, who knows a thing or two about the Manchester post-punk and beyond legends. The material is picked from albums running right up to their final album, New Facts Emerge. 3CD box set on Cherry Red.

Capital Punishment
This Is Capital Punishment

Right, this is getting ridiculous. It was a pretty far fetched idea for us to expect to believe that the earlier Capital Punishment re-issue was made 35 years ago by an all future star line up including Ben Stiller. Now we are told that the quartet including Supreme Court Justice judge Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor/TV 'funny' man Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge have gone back into the studio to make new material.  You expect us to believe this?

Bauhaus
In The Flat Field

Where did it all begin? Well, for Bauhaus (and thus arguably for all goths), it began in 1980 with In the Flat Field, a hell of a statement any way you cut it. Serious chugging rock heft underpins Peter Murphy’s highly characterful vocals: you can kind of see how it created a whole idiom in its wake. Reissue editions on 4AD.

oh800
Character Building

London trio Oh800 drop their debut LP. On Character Building the band demonstrate that they can do two kinds of post-punk - the wiry Talking Heads kind and the more languid Deerhunter kind. Cuts such as the title track, very much of the former mode, show off great Liquid Liquid-style work from the rhythm section. Character Building is a strong opening salvo from the group.

The Gluts
Fuzz Club Session

Why have a studio in a building when you could have one on a boat? London fuzz-fanciers Fuzz Club took this question to its logical conclusion and now they have a floating studio at Trinity Wharf. And between their recording engineers, their curated musicians and apparently the designer behind the Extras TV series titles, they’re putting out some serious sessions on wax. This one’s with gnashing Milanese noise-punks The Gluts, a seething snapshot of their furious live sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Gun Club
Elvis From Hell

Elvis From Hell by The Gun Club is a new two LP set of rarities from the Californian post-punk-cowpunk outfit. The four sides are split between their first demo recordings from 1981, their first on-air radio performance from New York in 1982,  a bunch of acoustic rarities from flamboyant singer Jeffrey Lee Pierce and an essential live recording of the band captured on 1993 European tour. It all comes tastefully packaged in a gatefold sleeve. Essential for Gun Club fans the world over! Limited to 500 copies on Bang!

Dolls
Pop The Bubble EP

Dolls (no, not the 1970s Swedish Schlager trio, silly - the up & coming Essex/London garage rock duo!) ready their new EP and highest-profile release yet, Pop the Bubble. Produced by Nick Cave & Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos, the four songs on side A showcase the duo’s sass, talent and dissatisfaction with wasteful and superficial modern life. Side B has a track called ‘Etched’, which doesn’t sound very good but certainly looks nice.

itoldyouiwouldeatyou
Oh Dearism

The name itoldyouiwouldeatyou sounds like a potential collaboration between iamamiwhoami and Thom Yorke, but is in fact an NME indie band from London: Los Campesinos! meets Titus Andronicus, that sort of thing. Their debut album Oh Dearism is pressed entirely using leftover bits from other vinyl jobs, which is a great idea.

Straight Arrows
On Top!

Agitated Records (The Icarus Line, Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys) drop an LP of scuzzy garage rock from the home of scuzzy rock - Australia. Straight Arrows are from Sydney, which as Aussie cities go isn’t at the top of the pecking order when it comes to garage-punk bands, but on On Top! the group turn in a collection of ramshackle rockers that will do their pals in Melbourne proud.

The Men
Hated: 2008 – 2011

Hated: 2008 - 2011 features the early material of The Men, the New York punk-etc. band who, at this point, were just punk. And what a gnarly kind of punk too: really grungy, noisy, hardcore-tinged stuff, represented in grainy glory in the form of tracks from demos, singles, live tracks, outtakes, and the group’s deeply rare first ever demo tape. On Sacred Bones.

JD Twitch presents Kreaturen der Nacht

JD Twitch of Optimo has been hard at work in the vinyl mines of early eighties Germany, and he’s come up trumps with this collection of rare favourites! Kreaturen der Nacht is a showcase of DIY post-punk music from bands like Leben Und Arbeiten and Welktklang, in some cases in the form of tracks never previously reissued. Presented in remastered form with lots of artist info, interviews and photos. On Strut.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Rays
You Can Get There From Here

Hailing from Oakland, California, Rays have diluted their sonic power, but not their quality, a little by borrowing from the UK ‘80s DIY scene. Influences such as Television Personalities, Cleaners From Venus and Dolly Mixture have shaped the band’s second album, You Can’t Get There From Here. LP or CD on Trouble In Mind.

Indifferent Dance Centre
Flight & Pursuit

The second release on Outer Reaches is a rare nugget of ‘80s post-punk. Indifferent Dance Centre put out one record, 1981 single Flight & Pursuit, during their time together. Recorded in a church hall in Chichester, the group’s style is an ethereal, tranquillised take on the moody sounds of Joy Division and The Durutti Column. The title track, with its ‘Come As You Are’ bassline and floaty vocals, prefigures the work of the much-missed High Places. A worthy reissue.

A Certain Ratio
acr:set

Ever since he first did it, I can't get the memory of Ian shouting "A-C-R MAN-CHES-TAR" out my head whenever I see an A Certain Ratio record. acr:set,  a compilation of the band's work from the past four decades including their first new tracks since 2008, is for all the people who have ever yelled that earnestly.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

System Of Hate
There Is No Madness Here

Some fun dad-punk from System Of Hate on their second LP. There Is No Madness Here has a sort of Killing Joke thing going on, granted, but also a Motorhead thing and a Motley Crue thing. Imagine if Towers Of London had mellowed a little with age and you’re in the right ballpark. It’s a good laff.

Sowas Von Egal: German Synth Wave Underground 1980-1985

The excellent Hamburg-based label Bureau B have unearthed more rare synth gems, to compile: Sowas Von Egal: German Synth Wave Underground 1980-1985. Not your typical '80s synth comp; this collaboration with the Damaged Goods party DJs has brought to light some remarkable, seldom heard music  ranging from post punk and synth wave -- all originally released in very small quantities, often by the bands themselves and sold at their gigs -- all pressed in the first half of the 1980s. Available as an LP or on shiny new CD.

48 Chairs
70% Paranoid

Described as one of Manchester's best kept secrets, this was an album of the bringing together of free jazz honker Lol Coxhill and synth wannabees Gerry and the Holograms.  Originally made in 1981,  the album bridges electronic jazz and punk jazz with vocals supplied by punk one-timer Fran Kershner. A collision course of DIY and out there jazz that stands the test of time.  

Exit Group
Adverse Habitat

Following in the footsteps of bands such as Useless Eaters and Dry Erase come Exit Group with Adverse Habitat. Like their peers. Exit Group take inspiration from Wire, Swell Maps and Chrome, but it also sounds like it was recorded in a basement with barely functioning electricity, walls covered in lichen and puddles on the floor - an adverse habitat indeed. LP and CD on Castle Face.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Join Hands

'Join Hands' was the second Siouxie and the Banshees album and found them still in a very bleak place with songs based around the First World War. It also features the band's harrowing version of the Lords Prayer. The hits started on the subsequent 'Kaleidoscope' but this one shows the band at their most darkly brutal.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Pop Group
For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?

An essential record from The Pop Group, reissued at last. For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? is no less boldly political than it’s title suggests, railing furiously against imperialism with Mark Stewart’s howls and the band’s tight post-punk-funk. Both CD and 2LP editions come with art prints and posters. On Freaks R Us.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Pere Ubu
The Art of Walking

The Art of Walking was Pere Ubu's 1980 album and their fourth full length album. There had been a line up tweak with Red Krayola's Mayo Thompson replacing original guitarist Tom Herman. This resulted in a more deconstructed and abstract album that began a move away from the schizoid garage-rock they had peddled at the beginning of their career. 

Death Valley Girls
Darkness Rains

As befitting a band with the name Death Valley Girls, Death Valley Girls have a fuzzy, dirty, blown-out punk-rock vibe to them: they’ve got the riffs, they’ve got the distortion, they’ve got the attitude, and the fuck-you vibrato in the singer’s voice will delight fans of early PJ Harvey. Darkness Rains is their third album to date, and it is released by Suicide Squeeze.

Silicon Teens
Music For Parties

Ok then, Seemingly Endless Stream Of Reissues, what you got for me today? Another soul-jazz record that no-one bought the first time it came out? Some Cream demos? A set of previously-unreleased takes from The Old Grey Whistle Test? Go on, give me your best shot. Silicon Teens? Never heard of them. Must be rubbish. What’s that you say? They were a fake band manufactured by Mute boss Daniel Miller? He made all the music but got actors, including Francis Tovey aka Fad Gadget, to pretend to be the group in interviews? Music For Parties was the second-ever album released on Mute and kind of sounds like Devo? That’s pretty cool actually. I’ll give you this one, Seemingly Endless Stream Of Reissues. Nice work.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Massicot
Suri Gruti

The sounds on Massicot’s new record Suri Gruti were apparently recorded as soundtracks to Man Ray films: from the sounds of the audience at the start and the end, Suri Gruti also appears to be a live document. But this stuff is firmly strong and potent enough to stand as its own record: tightly churning repeato-rock of the highest order. 10” on Harbinger Sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

A Certain Ratio
Mind Made Up

The final (at the time of writing) LP from A Certain Ratio is set to wax once more as part of Mute’s ongoing ACR reissues series. Though 2008’s Mind Made Up may not carry the same clout as seminal records like The Graveyard And The Ballroom, it still finds the band in rude health despite the members all being well into middle age. Young upstarts like Golden Teacher and !!! owe them a huge debt.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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 sound. On LP and CD. CD comes with three extra tracks.

A Certain Ratio
Change The Station

Mute’s reissue train for trailblazing Mancunian art-punks A Certain Ratio rolls on with 1997’s Change The Station. On ACR’s eighth LP, the group marry their trademark punk-funk style and the Madchester/acid influences of their early 90s output with tropes from the ambient scene that was making waves at the time. It makes for a heady listen.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Redd Kross
Third Eye

Redd Kross began life as part of the 1970’s Los Angeles South Bay punk scene by brothers Steven and Jeff McDonald who were intermittently joined by a revolving cast of members including Greg Hetson (Circle Jerks) and Ron Reyes (Black Flag). Full of catchy, melodic, thrash punk/power pop gems, their major label debut ‘Third Eye’ has been increasingly hard to come by on vinyl until now.

Wingtip Sloat
Purge & Swell / The Lost Decade

Who remembers Wingtip Sloat from the 90s? Well I certainly do. Their slash and burn, lop sided lo-fi sat somewhere in the minefield between Pavement and Truman's Water making them regulars on the John Peel show. Well, now they are back with not only a brand new album but a 31 track bonus disc of what they've been up to in between times.

L7
L7

Nothing like a reissue to build momentum for a long-overdue reunion. In anticipation of their first studio album in 14 years, original riot grrrls L7 are reissuing their self-titled debut. L7 set the stage, back in 1988, for a wave of high-energy girl bands in the 90s and might be considered a punk monument, back out on Epitath.

Ohmns
Jocelyn / Total Carnage

Wet-behind-the-ears Liverpudlian label Sentinel drop a two-track 7” from rambunctious scamps Ohmns. Both ‘Jocelyn’ and ‘Total Carnage’ see the group barrelling through a set of garage-punk riffs with gleeful abandon. It’s hard to make this sort of thing sound fresh, but the energy that Ohmns bring to the table works in their favour. Good clean fun.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Sheer Mag
Need To Feel Your Love

Sheer Mag’s debut full-length album has arrived. Need To Feel Your Love is dressed in the guitars, production and sleeve design of a bunch of vintage 70’s rockers (just look at that band logo!), but with a thoroughly modern anti-bullshit approach and a garage-punkish twist to the vocals. Out on Static Shock Records.

Sheer Mag
Compilation

The songs from Sheer Mag’s first three 7” singles are what you will find on the simply titled Compilation, all recorded DIY-style in whatever little corners were available at the time. You can really hear the band grow into their sound as the 7”s were originally released between 2014 and 2016. Vinyl LP release on Static Shock Records.

Greg Sage
Straight Ahead

This album by Greg Sage is notable for being the one that persuaded J. Mascis that the acoustic guitar was a thing worth existing, and Straight Ahead is worth your attention for that alone. Though even if you could care less about Dinosaur Jr, you should check it out on its own merit, as Wipers man Sage created an excellent, rather special album here. Remastered and reissued by Luxury Products.

ADULT.
This Behavior

It seems like -- ooh, let's see -- at least 18 of your Earth years since this duo gave us 'Nausea', back in those heady, queasy post-millennium Electroclash days. 6 albums and countless (nearly) EPs and singles later, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller present us with This Behavior as ADULT. All caps, full stop / period: record store peeps like us love them. Nic and Adam recorded it in a wood cabin in the wilds of North Michigan in the freezing mid Winter, should be a suitably chilled and frosty one then. On Dais records; choose from your black or yellow vinyl, or even a CD should you prefer.

Joe Strummer
Joe Strummer 001

A veritable feast for fans of late Clash legend Joe Strummer here. Joe Strummer 001 actually doesn’t feature any of his recordings with the trailblazing group. Instead the focus is on his solo material - all of his LPs feature here along with some soundtrack work and unreleased wares - and his time with The Mescaleros and The 101ers. Several lavish packages are available including a box-set full of goodies.

The Scientists
Braindead (Resuscitated) / SurvivalsKills

Los Angeles label In The Red (Ex-Cult, Wand) host the return of The Scientists. The Aussie swamp-punks have been pretty inactive since the 1980's, with only a handful of recordings emerging in the intervening years, but they seem to have got the bit between their teeth again. Here they re-record 1987’s ‘Braindead (Resuscitated)’ - a fitting choice for a comeback single - and back it with new song ‘Survivalskills’.

Constant Mongrel
Living In Excellence

Although not all surfers are Australians, it is sometimes said that every Australian is by definition a surfer. Aussie punkers Constant Mongrel make no effort to disprove this bland oversimplification. Living in Excellence mixes their punk violence with a laid-back surfer’s attitude, and then lace the result with decent synths and saxes.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Capital Punishment
Roadkill

Capital Punishment were a teenage band who formed in New York City in 1979. They took their influences from Throbbing Gristle, Brian Eno, Chrome and Cabaret Voltaire. Roadkill was their only album and was self-released. The interesting thing about them is their line-up, however. Supreme Court Justice Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

Joyce Manor
Million Dollars To Kill Me

One of the best bands to emerge in the recent revival of Good Old-Fashioned Proper Emo, Joyce Manor’s fifth LP sees the group take the big leap into adulthood. The songwriting on Million Dollars To Kill Me is more mature, more considered, and wiser than anything they’ve released previously. Even among their eloquent and impassioned contemporaries - Martha, Joanna Gruesome, Mitski - Joyce Manor stand out.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Bad Sports
Constant Stimulation

Texans Bad Sports bring a fresh approach to proto punk and power pop with their fourth album, Constant Stimulation. The trio, fronted by the wonderfully named Orville Neeley, sound frustrated with the state of the world in 2018, as the album title suggests, there’s just too much going on! LP and CD on Dirtnap.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

This Heat
This Heat

This Heat remain one of the most unique and remarkable bands in existence, and it is a joy to see their catalogue being reissued on vinyl for the first time! This Heat, their debut, is full of post-punk churn, dissonant ambience, and even proto-drum & bass (‘24 Track Loop’). Remastered audio, 180g vinyl, and a booklet of notes and photos, on Modern Classics.

Sleaford Mods
Sleaford Mods EP

First new music from Sleaford Mods since 2017's English Tapas and as is their wont it's a five track EP ahead of a promised new LP next March. A bunch of things to tie you over all about people's anger with the political system and the slow descent into slanging matches. Always on the ball it's nice to have them back. They may look rough and tough and snarly but they are lovely lads really. Soft as puppies.

Typical Girls Volume Four

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 simultaneously! Volume 4 features cool artists like The Primitives, Cruel Summer and No Love.

Table Sugar
Collected Acknowledgements

Seven track vinyl release from Table Sugar. This band of Olympians (USA!), who are most certainly post-punk, are post-punk in the vein of the UK's own Shopping and fellow countrymen Lithics. That is to say it's sharp, angular, melodic, and most of all fun! Limited to only 500 copies on Mississippi Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Noseholes
Danger Dance

On Harbinger Sound (Sleaford Mods etc), Noseholes (yup we all have two of them) make a kind of rackety no-wave and post-punk that it sure to blow any cobwebs away. Comparisons have been made to bands like Bush Tetras and Shopping and so this distinctly lop sided tangle of guitars promises much. 

Gareth Sager & The Hungry Ghost
Juicy Rivers

Hang on, look at the sleeve. A lion mauling a moustachioed man who is eating ....a biscuit?  It's a typically eccentric sleeve for this founding member of the Pop Group / Rip Rig & Panic and Head. Quite the career. Ten tracks of punk funk with collaborations with Jock Scot and Davey Henderson (Fire Engines etc).

XTR HUMAN are a German post-punk outfit who took the smart step of backing off from the relentless churn of touring for a little while, all the better to craft new material. And now here they are, back with a fantastic new EP that incorporates shoegaze and positivity into the band’s sound. CD EP, released by Blackjack Illuminist.

Bikini Kill
The Singles

Pitchfork said that The Singles by Bikini Kill defined the band. This description writer would like to take that a little further and suggest that it defined the Riot Grrrl sound. The band were fronted by head Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Features classics such as Rebel Girl and New Radio - the latter being a collaboration with proto Riot Grrrl, Joan Jett. LP and CD on Bikini Kill Records.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Superstition

This is Siouxsie and the Banshees 10th album and was originally released in 1991. It was produced by Stephen Hague (New Order/Pet Shop Boys) which meant it had his usual array electronic textures and drum programs.  Though this didn't enamour the album to some fans it was still critically respected for it's tender and emotional songs.

Amebix
Slovenia 86

Not one of the more famous international football tournaments, Slovenia 86. In fact, we can’t recall a single notable incident from any of the games. However, the opening ceremony will live long in our minds. You remember - Amebix played? They ran through a set that included music from their first two LPs Arise! and Monolith? Hmmm … perhaps we’ve made the football bit up. Anyway, the gig definitely happened, and now the crust punk OGs have seen fit to have the audio from the gig tidied up and released on vinyl for the first time.

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG. Also we are assured that this IS Martin Hannett this time. Hi Ozit Dandelion. 

Palberta
Roach Goin' Down

Prolific punx Palberta return to Wharf Cat Records (Big French, Bichkraft) with a fun, fresh LP. Roach Goin’ Down may run to twenty-two tracks, but the band rattle through them with such ramshackle abandon that things don’t ever feel like they’re dragging. Combining twee-punk ala Trust Fund, art-punk ala Parquet Courts and some sweet vocal harmonies ala Girlpool, the band’s sound is at once carefree and mature.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Baptists
Bloodmines

Crusty hardcore kids Baptists are back with a record of chaotic punk rock that tries to throw in as many riffs and rasped vocals as possible. 'Bloodmines', their second record, does a good job of using melody to clear out the clutter, continuing to show off the band's subtle post-hardcore and noise rock influences.

dragSTER
Anti-Everything

Miss the ‘90s? Think that cyberpunk is due another day in the sun? Wistfully daydreaming about bygone Whitby Goth festivals? Then fear not - the fourth LP from dragSTER is here to satisfy your cravings. Anti-Everything is very turn-of-the-century Marilyn Manson, which is great news because his recent stuff was starting to wear us out. We are, verily, all stars now. Out via Louder Than War (Evil Blizzard, Fawn Spots).

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

Patti Smith
Outside Society

Patti Smith was quite the thing when she appeared in 1975 with 'Horses'. The album Michael Stipe said "tore my limbs off and re-arranged them in a different order". It's hard now to appreciate how different and unique she was at that time of hoary old rockers. Now you can view her entire career through a new lens as this retrospective collects the best bits of her work in chronological order.  

Thee Oh Sees
Fortress

Thee Oh Sees really love ‘Fortress’ imagery don’t they? I’m sure this is the 3rd or 4th release associated with fortresses, always suggesting that John Dwyer’s garage-punk heroes are mounting a dramatic adventure. Lovely. The Fortress single is a stand-alone release recorded in the same sessions as the recent Mutilator album, plus a live cut on the flip! 7” on Castle Face.

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy prog vibe (see sleeve).   

Slaves
Acts of Fear and Love

It’s 2030 and Britain is hosting the centenary edition of the Fifa World Cup™. A decade on from Brexit, the UK has torn off the shackles of European control to become the richest and most powerful country in the whole world, and Prime Minister Johnson is keen to rub it in the faces of all those naysayers who thought we couldn’t do it. For the opening ceremony, he takes to the Wembley stage with a hologram of Sepp Blatter and a portly, middle-aged Wayne Rooney. The trio shake hands, release a flurry of doves painted the colours of the Union Jack, and introduce the musical entertainment. Rooney wanted the Stereophonics, but the ever-tactful Johnson has plumped for recent Glastonbury headliners Slaves. The greying ‘punks’, lightly pinking in the London sun, run through a short salvo of ‘Vindaloo’, ‘Ooooooh Naughty!’ (the new single that will feature on their upcoming greatest hits compilation) and a couple from their truckload-selling third LP Acts Of Fear And Love. A global audience of over one billion bloody love it, you mug.

Uniform
The Long Walk

The Long Walk is Uniform’s second or third LP for Sacred Bones depending on whether you’re counting the collaborative record they made with The Body. However, don’t try and crunch the numbers while you’re actually listening to this thing. The pair make such a racket that it’s pretty much impossible to concentrate on anything else. File next to The Soft Moon and Blanck Mass.

The Mekons 77
It Is Twice Blessed

Leeds legends The Mekons get the band back together, in a manner of speaking. While The Mekons has run in various incarnations since forming in the late 70s, new LP It Is Twice Blessed marks the first time that the original lineup has recorded an album together for almost forty years. It’s a classic serving from a group which spawned from the same scene as Gang Of Four and Delta 5 - spiky post-punk, rendered with shades of dub and country, that skewers the Current State Of Affairs with righteous fury.

Pere Ubu
Raygun Suitcase

After three albums that flirted with pop for major label, Fontana, Pere Ubu returned to the comfort of an indie label and the darker, more avant-garde sound of their origins for 1995’s Raygun Suitcase. The album received a mixed critical response but was well thought of by Rolling Stone magazine, and they tend to know their stuff. LP and CD on Fire.

Pere Ubu
Cloudland

Prior to Cloudland being released in 1989, Pere Ubu had been silent for seven years. In the intervening years the band’s only constant member, the ‘out-there’ vocalist David Thomas, had kept his hand in by releasing a solo album. Cloudland was a critical success and contained the single Waiting For Mary which earned them their only Billboard chart placing, which is quite a feat for such an avant-garde bunch. LP and CD on Fire.

Pere Ubu
Worlds In Collision

Following a seven year break, avant-garde Ohio rockers, Pere Ubu signed to major label, Fontana for a three album run. Worlds In Collision was the second of that bunch and was originally released in 1991. For this album, legendary keyboard player Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, The Residents) joined the band. LP and CD on Fire.

Traps PS
New Chants

Sometimes press releases can actually muddle things up for a rather than simplify them. What do you mean when you say the band is ‘questing for an expression not yet known’, or 'matriculating the madrigals of mayhem'? Why have you spent a paragraph comparing said artist to Johnny Major-Shakin’-Bacon? Who even is that? Anyway, kudos to whoever wrote the spiel for New Chants by Traps PS. Within the first paragraph they compare the LA trio to The Minutemen and Gang Of Four, and they close out by talking about Wire, and that’s the whole thing sewn up right there. If only more of them were like this.

Fucked Up
High Rise

Hardcore Canadian punks, Fucked Up, have a new album on the way released later in 2018. To whet their fans whistles in anticipation of this they have recorded a 7”  single on Tankcrimes containing High Rise, a cover of a song by The Trainspotters and Tower On Time, a Jade Hairpins cover. It has been made to celebrate Dreamsday but what is that?

GØGGS
Pre Strike Sweep

Pre Strike Sweep is nothing to do with Giggs and very much to do with Ty Segall. The uncouthly prolific fuzz-rocker plays back-up in GØGGS, noodling away on his axe while Ex-Cult bloke Chris Shaw deals with the yipping and yelping. Tunes like the title track do a good job of melding Ex-Cult’s hardcore thrash with Segall’s brand of psych-y garage-rock.
