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.

The Ex
27 Passports

The Ex have made about a billion albums starting in 1979 and still going strong. On each album they start with a blank canvas so you are never sure what you are going to get. This time it seems that that have created a trance-like opus that has been influenced by trips to Africa creating an infectious groove laden sound.

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.

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.

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?   
  • Genre(s):

Pissed Jeans
Why Love Now

Sludgy, punky noise-makers Pissed Jeans have been churning out their brand of gnarly rock for thirteen years now. On Why Love Now, their fifth album, they focus their lyrical wit on the more humdrum events of modern life such as office supply deliveries along with the more uncomfortable such as fetish webcams. Why Love now was produced by no wave legend Lydia Lunch along with Arthur Rizk from Eternal Champion and Goat Semen.

Downtown Boys
Cost Of Living

The brilliant Downtown Boys made an absolutely monumental record a couple years back in Full Communism, a hardcore record with skronking sax, righteous politics and an abiding love for Bruce Springsteen. Their new record, Cost of Living, sounds like a structural upgrade to their sound, the lead single "A Wall" more dynamic but no less thrilling. A compassionate strike against the racism and Islamophobia present in American life, it continues the band's necessary fight against what they describe as "the whitewashed world of rock".
  • Genre(s):

Negative Scanner
Nose Picker

Chicago based four-piece Negative Scanner bring their sophomore album Nose Picker to us through Trouble in Mind. Rowdy, lo-fi, and filled with a snarling joy Nose Picker hits the ground running with opening track T.V. and doesn’t let up. DIY or die attitude (all their stuff is recorded in their practice room) and a directness that fans of Sleaford Mods will certainly enjoy.

Table Sugar
Introductory Material

Go on hands up....who like the Slits? Ok. The Raincoats? I see. Well you are in luck as this art punk band out of Olympia mine a similar post punk path. The band are known for chucking sounds against the wall to see what sticks leading to chaotic and confrontational music that perfect place where beginners enthusiasm and expert songwriting meet.  
  • Genre(s):

Butthole Surfers
Locust Abortion Technician

Pretty scary people back in the day this lot. Locust Abortion Technician was their third studio album and continued their blend of acid fried psychedelia, garage rock and experimentalism. Kuty Cobain cited this as one of his top 50 records of all time and it was a unique, terrifying insight into these strange people's world.  

Rat The Magnificent
The Body As Pleasure

Rat The Magnificent make a big old racket on their debut LP The Body As Pleasure. The London power-rock trio pitch these ten tracks somewhere between McLusky, Girl Band and early Biffy Clyro, delivering ferocious blast of sound after ferocious blast of sound. Singer Perry Anderson’s vocals bring to mind Thom Yorke at his most fried.
  • Genre(s):

Alan Vega
Alan Vega

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Alan Vega deconstructed punk and was central to the birth of post-punk, new wave and most that followed. On the side he worked on his solo efforts, focusing more on rock and roll and rockabilly, stripping it and pulling it apart. Not re-pressed since the 1980s, comes with a huge A1 screen-printed poster and notes from Henry Rollins.

Wipers
Wipers Rarities

This underground Wipers material has only been available through back-alley bootleg channels for the last 25 years, but now these Wipers Rarities are respectable at last, with an official release on the Bang! label. A full 2 LPs of live shows, B-sides, compilation tracks and their super-rare first single. Pow! 1000 copies only.

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

Dead Cross (2018, Ipecac), not to be confused with Dead Cross (2017, Ipecac), is the latest headbanging release by Southern California weird hardcore/metal supergroup Dead Cross (2015 - present, Ipecac). They’re Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain, and their EP consists of two hyperactive new songs and two remixes of songs from last year’s album.

Public Image Limited
The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols. Over recent years people seem to have realised that, yes, PIL were pretty innovative. To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio sessions and a ton of live recordings. More Rotten than you'll probably ever need. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Bellini
Before The Day Has Gone

A decade in the making, Bellini’s fourth LP finally arrives courtesy of Temporary Residence. The Italian quartet make a pleasing racket here that is pitched somewhere between Idlewild, Preoccupations and PJ Harvey. That is to say that Before The Day Has Gone is one of those post-punk albums that manages to be at once both loose and groovy, discordant and melodic.

Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984

Punk is a loose term for what we have here. While Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984 contains several of the scene’s defining anthems - ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’, ‘Blank Generation’ and suchlike - there is as much ‘post-’ and ‘proto-’ as there is ‘punk’ on display. Entries from The Gun Club, Joy Division, Patti Smith, Television and more give Rhino’s twenty-three-track compilation a pleasing sense of variety. The quality of the content is, of course, beyond dispute.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Ramones
Rocket To Russia

40th anniversary edition of the Ramones third album Rocket to Russia. This one features many of their most classic songs such as  'Sheena Is A Punk Rocker' and 'Rockaway Beach'. This edition contains two dozen rare and unreleased tracks plus a never before heard recording of their show at the Apollo, Glasgow in 1977. Altogether now 1-2-3-4. 
  • Genre(s):

Richard Hell & The Voidoids
Blank Generation

Give ‘em Hell, Richard! Like it’s spiritual ancestor The Velvet Underground’s The Velvet Underground & Nico, Blank Generation is one of those LPs whose influence in the world of popular culture cannot be overstated. Along with backing group The Voidoids, the former Television man laid down a marker for all other punk bands when he dropped his Blank Generation in 1977. Without this you’d have had no Sex Pistols and no Clash. Hell & The Voidoid's debut is reissued by Rhino.

Holiday Inn
Torbido

Holiday Inn are one of Rome’s finest synth-punk outfits, and they create music as ferociously DIY and direct as that Xerox-ed cover art. Torbido is real powerhouse stuff, tapping straight into the veins and jolting with wave after wave of pulsing, shouting, pumping energy. Not at all like the chain of budget hotels. Vinyl release from the Avant! and Maple Death labels.

Chastity
Death Lust

A re-issue of demos on Brooklyn label Captured Tracks has fuelled a burgeoning interest in Canadian punks Chastity. Support slots with Priests, Fucked Up, Metz and Chelsea Wolfe have only made people more excited about their debut LP Death Lust. The album revolves around the concept that the pain of living knowing we’re going to die is tempered by the ability to cope with that knowledge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

The Fall
Yarbles

British post-punk legends the Fall played Blackburn's King Georges Hall in 2002, just a year after the release of 'Are You Are Missing Winner', which heralded in a new line-up working with Mark E. Smith and a handful of collaborations. 'Yarbles' is a selection of a dozen highlights from that performance at King Georges.

Crispy Ambulance
Compulsion

Compulsion is a new album by Crispy Ambulance. The wonderfully named post-punks from Manchester wrote six of the tracks way back in 1982 after their debut album The Plateau Phase. The songs were even included in their live set at the time. Compulsion is the band’s fourth album and was specially released for Record Store Day 2015.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Nachthexen
Disco Creep

Sheffield’s Nachthexen continue their fine run that dates back to 2015’s The Other with another EP of righteous, fervid post-punk. The latest weapon in their arsenal is a new dancefloor sensibility, best exemplified on the title track. Over a ragged disco beat, their always-on-point vocalist rages against men in clubs who proceed to ruin her night out by showing no regard for her personal space. Out on Harbinger Sound.

The Drowning Craze
Singles '81 - '82

Cynics would say that short-lived 80s post-punk group Drowning Craze are only getting a reissue on Bella Union because bassist Simon Raymonde set up the label. Others would say that they’re there on merit. Personally we’d opt for the latter - just try to resist the zippy punk-funk of debut single ‘Storage Case’, which was NME Single Of The Week when it came out. This compilation collects their entire discography (three singles), and for a limited time will also come with a cassette of their 1982 Peel Session.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

LCD Soundsystem
American Dream

You can have a strange relationship with LCD Soundsystem, a bit like Marmite - you either love them, or hate them. This ten track release, entitled American Dream, is no doubt a great collection of tracks for any LCD fan but might not be for everyone. Available on Vinyl LP and CD on DFA / Columbia.  

LIFE
Grown Up

It had to happen sometime. We’ve entered the era which we could call post-Slaves, but we’ll more charitably call post-Sleaford Mods. LIFE - who have an album called Popular Music, but neither of these songs are on it - do a sprightly sort of Sex Pistols-with-a-drum-machine thing on ‘Grown Up’. It’s also quite similar to that song from Nathan Barley called ‘Terrorists Are Gay’.

Crucifix
Crucifix

Reissue of anarcho-punks Crucifix’s long out of print self-titled debut EP. Originally released in 1981 on Universal, in their 5 year existence they became notorious for their blend of d-beat and hardcore punk filled with youthful angst driven by political rage. For fans of Discharge, Crass et al. LP on Kustomized.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Wolfhounds
Unseen Ripples From A Pebble

C86 originals The Wolfhounds were more gritty and intense than the fey, shambling reputation the influential cassette has now, as evidenced on their 1987 debut LP ‘Unseen Ripples From A Pebble’. Reissued and remastered featuring 15 bonus tracks and all of their recorded output for the Pink Label, this album has not been available on CD until now. Also included is a 7” version of single ‘Me’ that was originally released on Idea Records. 

Giuda
Rock N Roll Music

Just so they didn’t accidentally filter out any of the natural raw power of their stage performance, Italian rock band Giuda recorded their latest aptly named single, Rock ‘N’ Roll Music, live. The band have one foot in the ‘70s classic rock camp, whilst the other is firmly rooted in UK punk. If you like the idea of Slade tempered with a bit of Slaughter And The Dogs, then this is for you. Green vinyl 7" on Rise Above.

The Damned
Stiff Singles 1976-1977

The Damned are punk legends, and Stiff are the legendary punk label that enabled them to become punk legends, so really this is the a perfect compilation for one of punk’s great singles bands. Stiff Singles 1976 - 1977 rounds up all of The Damned’s singles from that white hot early period, presenting them in the form of five facsimile 7”s in a box with a patch. Thanks to BMG.

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.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Wire
Chairs Missing

Wire's second album has now, belatedly, got the re-issue treatment. 'Chairs Missing' expanded the short, sharp art-rock of their debut 'Pink Flag' into something more rounded and experimental, particularly in terms of their song structure. The CD editions come with bonus discs of so many demos that you won't know what to do with them.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Red Hare
Little Acts Of Destruction

The fine tradition of D.C. hardcore appears to be in safe hands with Red Hare. Their second LP, Little Acts Of Destruction, is a bracing dash through fourteen taut, muscular punk tracks. Tracks like ‘Affirmation’ bristle with energy, packing plenty into their short run times. If you needed a seal of approval, this one’s out as a collaborative release between Dischord and Hellfire. The CD version is fleshed out by tracks from their 2016 7" Lexicon Mist.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Dwarves
Rex Everything

Former Kyuss and Queens Of The Stoneage bass player Nick Oliveri is currently twanging the four thick strings for Dwarves under the pseudonym Rex Everything. This album is a compilation of tracks featuring Oliveri on vocals with Dwarves backing him up. Head Dwarf Blag Dhalia produced the album. 12 songs in 20 minutes - punk as f**k. LP on Bang! Limited to 1000 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Iceage
Beyondless

Posh punks Iceage continue their champagne toasts to Nick Cave and fellow goth brooders with Beyondless. Further deconstructing the form of their early hardcore tunes, they continue to ramble their way through their new aesthetic style, this time sharing runtime with Sky Ferreira, who guests on "Pain Killer". Very serious music that's actually very silly.

Girls Names
Stains on Silence

It looked like Girls Names were really onto something a few years ago with their dark swirling Echo & the Bunnymen style rock but then their drummer left and that was followed by a crisis of confidence about the recordings that have turned into 'Stains of Silence'. However, re-grouped, refreshed the band have reworked the album and have created a short sharp work that they hope will stand up to the intense, jagged records that have influenced them.  

This Kind Of Punishment
This Kind Of Punishment

Following the demise of their previous band Nocturnal Projections, New Zealand brothers Peter and Graeme Jeffries began to deconstruct their post punk sound into something more pastoral and intimate. This became the handful of recordings they made as This Kind of Punishment. This is superb, intimate and thoughtful music with classical and baroque overtones.  

The Damned
Evil Spirits

My goodness this is actually a new the Damned record. They even raised so much money on Pledge that they could get Bowie sidekick Tony Visconti to produce it. As the sleeve says it features original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible and the record harks back to their original 1976 sound but also lyrically reflects our current bleak times. 
  • Genre(s):

Uniform & The Body
Mental Wounds Not Healing

Serial heavyweight collaborators The Body move onto their next hosts in the form of Uniform, after the two groups toured Europe together. The songs for Mental Wounds Not Healing were built up back and forth, until these monstrous music makers were virtually fused into one powerhouse entity. You know what to expect, dive in people. On Sacred Bones.

Lice
It All Worked Out Great

In yer face post-punk from Bristol’s Lice with this collection of two previously-released EPs on Joe “Idles” Talbot’s Balley Records. The material has circulated through the band’s live sets in the last few years and found its way onto record at last. They sound somewhere between The Fall and Public Image Ltd. to these ears, and pack in some provocative lyrics and super riffs to boot.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Savak
Cut-Ups

A new New York guitar band, built out of component parts of noted bands including Holy Fuck, The Make Up and The Cops. Cut-Ups takes inspiration not only from William Burroughs (we presume) but also from an array of post-punk musics and beyond, though indie guitar songcraft always remains at the centre of the sound. Released by Ernest Jenning Record Co.

The Sex Pistols
Live '76

Fans of the Sex Pistols from back in the day are all dead, struggling to remember their own names, or hiding in shame from their previous incarnations as punk rockers with safety pins through their ears and Bostik stuck to their noses a la Adrian Mole. Spark some fragmented memories with Live ‘76 from The Sex Pistols, with sets from the Lesser Free Trade Hall, Screen on the Green, Islington, Chelmsford Maximum Security Prison and 76 Club. On Vinyl and CD box set.

Cabbage
The Extended Play of Cruelty

Following on from their long sold out Record Store Day collection of early singles and *that* horrific assault allegation, Manchester lad punk outfit Cabbage return with a five track EP of their increasingly popular indie rock. Now signed to Infectious it looks like we are now in for the long haul. 

Robocobra Quartet
Plays Hard To Get

The group once described by Drowned In Sound as ‘Fugazi meets Mingus’ make an interesting racket on their latest LP. While the comparison still holds up on Plays Hard To Get, there’s a stuerm und drang to the likes of ‘You’ll Wade’ that has echoes of everyone from Mclusky to Zu to In Rainbows-era Radiohead.

Colin Newman
Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish

Colin Newman kept busy during Wire’s temporary early 80’s split, releasing three rather interesting solo records. Provisionally entitled the singing fish is a little unusual, with some entirely non-post-punk sounds creeping in there. Released on vinyl and CD, with the CD edition coming with a whole extra disc of demos and the like. On Sentient Sonics.

Paul Messis
Songs of Our Times

Paul Messis regards himself as a 'garage punk unknown' but has been throwing out pysch-rock nuggets for the best part of a decade as a solo artist, with his band The Suburban Homes, as bass player with The Higher State and through his collaboration with The Sufis - The Market Squares. His new solo LP, Songs Of Our Times mixes the jangle of ‘60s garage with folk rock and folk punk delivering a record that displays what he is all about.

Various
Typical Girls Volume Three

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 3 features ace artists like Rata Negra, Sick Bags and Karen Meat.

Numb.er
Goodbye

What type of -wave is this? The type that a graphic designed and a synthesiser lover make. Dense atmospherics overlaid with the deadpan delivery that reaches all the way back to Joy Division. Numb.er are well practiced in dynamics and are adept at delivering a pointy gut punch when needed.

Blues Lawyer
Guess Work

Blues Lawyer weren’t supposed to last long, two shows in fact, but they decided to keep going. Founding members Rob I. Miller and Eylse Schrock met in a record store and realising they shared a fondness for Flying Nun bands such as The Clean and The Bats, started a band. Guess Work is their debut album, combining the punk and pop of The Vaselines, Television Personalities and Wire. LP on Emotional Response.

The Coathangers
Live

Atlanta, Georgia garage punk three-piece The Coathangers have done their best to capture the essence of their live energy in the studio over five albums. However, there’s nothing like ‘live’ for that truly visceral and magical experience so the band decided to release a blistering 38-minute set that shows the best of their songs and performance. Tri-Colour (black, white and red) vinyl LP on Suicide Squeeze, limited to 1500 copies.

Arndales
Shops

Brilliant. These former members of Country Teasers, Art Brut, Collapsed Lung and Thrilled Skinny have got together over a love (or hatred) of retail jargon with songs inspired by the gobbledegook that is spouted in their workplaces. Should be fun, and musically it would appear to appeal to fans of the Fall, Half Man Half Biscuit, Sleaford Mods etc.  

Vitamin X
Age Of Paranoia

So many bands, trends and scenes have come and gone since Vitamin X first surfaced in the late-90s, but somehow the Amsterdam punx have managed to outlast them all. This is probably something to do with an ever-burning fire in their bellies - Age Of Paranoia’s lead single ‘Modern Man’ contains the spunk of a band half their age - and their ability to incorporate elements of hardcore punk, thrash metal, grindcore and more into their music without ever sounding laboured. Out via Southern Lord (Nails, Power Trip).

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 the bank...and you should, too.

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. Catchy without losing any complexity.

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 is a special expanded edition, packaged with Schtick: Yarbles Revisited.

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 DC hardcore scene as Bad Brains’s I Against I or Fugazi’s 13 Songs. This new version saw the original mixes run through the desk at Grohl’s studio and comes with some nice photos of the band in their pomp.

Pere Ubu
Dub Housing

Too many Pere Ubu records have been allowed to slip out of print, so here, to coincide with some shows, the group are reissuing a few early records on Fire. Dub Housing is their second album, and represents the group at their wild, harsh best. Newly remastered from the original tapes and available on CD or LP.

Pere Ubu
The Modern Dance

Too many Pere Ubu records have been allowed to slip out of print, so here, to coincide with some shows, the group are reissuing a few early records on Fire. The Modern Dance is their searing 1978 debut, a furiously powerful mash of industrial-tinged rock and weird concreté sounds. Remastered from the original tapes.

Live At the Roxy 1977 / Live At CBGB Theatre 1978

Gig recordings from Wire’s imperial phase here. The Live At The Roxy 1977 section actually features audio from two shows on consecutive nights at London’s Roxy club. This is Pink Flag era so the set is as sharp as a knife. As for Live At CBGB Theatre 1978? Well, it’s the band playing at CBGB a year later (the theatre venue, not the main stage). By this point Wire were in Chairs Missing mode so their sound had opened up a bit, but as a live proposition they remained an austere, brutalist thrill.

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 Scissor Sisters cover.

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake!

Here they come again with their fifth album which is produced by none other than Danger Mouse. This is another bold and groundbreaking work that benefits from full band arrangements with the group playing with their usual true punk rock passion. More confident with each release this is set to be their biggest missive yet. 

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 the band’s crunchy keyboard sound does the work of a distorted six-string. This being a Captured Tracks release, there’s a nice seam of poppiness that runs through Wax Chattels. Think At The Drive In meets The Gun Club.

Amyl and the Sniffers
Big Attraction & Giddy Up

Punk’s not dead, and it will never die, and that’s because of Australia. Sorry - I meant it’s because of Australian groups. Groups like Amyl and the Sniffers. The two EPs bundled together here were each written and recorded in a matter of seconds, and that’s no bad thing. Tracks like ‘Blowjobs’ and ‘Mole (Sniff Sniff)’ buzz with a great spur-of-the-moment energy.

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. 

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 Dark Entries.

Various
Outer Himalayan Presents

This collaborative release between Dark Entries and Sacred Bones sees them chronicling the output of British post-punk imprint Outer Himmalayan Records. Active in the late 70s and early 80s, the label’s 7” releases of bands The Magits, Soft Drinks and The Haters became formative releases in the annals of both Goth and anarcho-punk. For this reissue, the tracks have been remastered and come accompanied with a zine.

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, Moody Balloon Baby. True to the punker roots though, there’s social commentary leaking out through the cacophony.

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. A ‘Western Gothic’ album with a loose storyline, the likes of ‘Jose Tries To Leave’ wouldn’t sound out of place on From Her To Eternity or Let Love In. There’s also a nice Metz-y scree to the guitar tones. Out via Wharf Cat Records (Palberta, La Peste).

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." For fans of the most primitive of industrial sounds, post punk and degenerate electronica.

ILL
We Are Ill

We Are Ill. Aren’t we all, eh? Anyway, this rabble are from Manchester and their LP is being released by Box Records (Gnod, Bong). The nine tracks here are a weird, fuzzy hybrid of psych-rock, groovy post-punk and a bit of riot girl too. Ill do their best to bring the noise while still keeping one hand on the melody control. Tracks like ‘Stuck On A Loop’ hit the sweet spot between The Slits and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

The EFFECTS
Eyes To The Light

Est. 2014 in Washington, DC during a fight for control of the caps lock key, the EFFECTS are a trio specialising in riffy, post-punk U.S. indie. On this debut LP Eyes to the Light, the band follows a canonically restless approach of punctuating expressive melodic verses and rough choruses with menageries of tight little fills and midsections. Expect plenty of knobbly bass, precise guitar, curveball moments of harmonic pathos and unrestrained vocals.

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 with a punk's momentum. Energy energy energy!

Neurosis
Pain Of Mind

The lords of crust Neurosis return with another reissue from the river-mark. Who here remembers Pain of Mind, a classic of the East Bay scene? It strayed deep out of reality and delved into a thrashy cosmological void where all that could be accessed was growls, screams and groaning musical onslaught, the kind of piercing, unfussy sound the band started their existence on. 

Pere Ubu
Terminal Tower

Terminal Tower was a 1985 era collection of the early singles of deconstructed industrial garage rockers Pere Ubu. The band were on hiatus at the time of release so it was as good a time as any to revisit the racket they were making a decade earlier. It features their debut 30 Seconds Over Tokyo and ten more examples of their rulebook destroying form of rock music. 

LIFE
Popular Music

Hull-based band LIFE present their first album-length-statement of accurate and focused anger. The cannily titled Popular Music is a little like Sleaford Mods if they were also a Fall-ish band with guitars and all. This debut album is bristling with all the brutality of 2017, and it makes for a righteous listen. Released on the Afghan Moon label.

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

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

Wire
Nocturnal Koreans

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

UltraMantis Black
UltraMantis Black

Behold the debut EP of the hardcore punk band created to spread the gospel of professional wrestling champion UltraMantis Black. Having spent over a decade dominating the Chikara wrestling scene, UltraMantis teamed up with members of the beloved punk band Pissed Jeans to form a blistering political hardcore band that is equal parts The Locust, Deadguy and Melt Banana.  Imagine the best parts of 90s straight-edge hardcore filtered through the bodyslamming genius of Vince McMahon and you have UltraMantis Black!  Recommended if you like: Pissed Jeans, (early) Dillinger Escape Plan, Lightning Bolt, Daughters, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Genghis Tron, Spazz.
