Hot Snakes
Audit In Progress

A re-issue on vinyl, CD and cassette on their new label Sub Pop, Audit In Progress would be the last Hot Snakes album until they reformed and released Jericho Sirens some 14 years later. A short, sharp collection of lithe and focussed garage-punk, it displayed the cult San Diego band in all their glory. 

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. 

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 as popular as the bands they shared members with: The Rezillos, Josef K and The Human League.

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 regret.

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 Vera. LP and CD on Wharf Cat Records.

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 restless energy and zest for life.

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 into commercial alt-pop territory, exemplified by the exuberant Beckett-rewrite Waiting For Mary. Worlds in Collision adds Beefheart / Residents guitarist Eric Drew Feldman. There’s also a fourth disc of previously unreleased material. This boxset represents a now somewhat overlooked period in Ubu history, where they drew on Americana from the Beach Boys to Beefheart in a unique and always interesting way, with David Thomas cast in the unlikely role of pop singer.

FACS
Negative Houses

Formed from the ashes of Disappears, Chicago group FACS come through with their debut LP for Trouble In Mind Records (Ultimate Painting, Negative Scanner). The trio create an almighty racket on Negative Houses. Sky-scraping reverbs recall golden-era My Bloody Valentine, but the lumbering post-punk grooves and screes of guitar invoke This Heat and PiL.

Various
Typical Girls Volume 2

WIth a quote from The Slits proudly raised as a banner over the whole thing, Emotional Response present the second volume of their Typical Girls compilation series of ass-kicking punk / pop-punk bands. This set features bands from all over the Western world (including Black Abba, Skinny Girl Diet and Midnight Snaxxx), none of whom are taking any shit.

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 that’s just proof that rock ‘n’ roll never dies. Anyway, Khöme Kakkä is a fun bilingual romp.

Interrobang‽
Interrobang‽

Interrobang are the agit pop project of former Chumbawamba member Dunstan Bruce alongside with Harry Hamer also formerly of Chumbawamba and ex-Regular Fries guitarist Stephen Griffin. They make vicious pop punk full of social and political commentary and wry asides. Taking the ideas and ethics of their former band and charging into new more punk influenced territories the band already have a loyal following through incendiary live shows.

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

In 1988 The Fall, in collaboration with the Michael Clark Company, staged an experimental ballet about William of Orange's ascension to the throne. Mark E Smith and co. handled the music side of things and the ensuing album was christened I Am Kurious Oranj. Reissued by Beggars Banquet to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary.

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 Water.

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.

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 a touch more immediate, ‘Burn In The City’ a little reserved by comparison, and both are gonna sound great on the BBC 6Music playlist.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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.

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 previous releases.

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.

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. Lyrically, they’ve been likened to a hyper Dan Treacy of Television Personalities. All I can tell you is that this is certainly a listening experience that’s not easy to forget. Limited Gold vinyl LP on Harbinger Sound.

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 Leadbelly are responsible for their sound, but one could argue that was misleading. 1979-1985: Complete Recordings is just that, and a treasure trove of music that deserves more attention. Available as 6LP/CD set and 6CD set on Tapete.

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 Ronettes’ cover Baby I Love You were as bombastic and commercial as the band ever got. More aggressive faire like the Dee Dee and Richard Hell-penned heroin anthem Chinese Rocks also excelled with the wall of sound approach. Not the first Ramones LP you might reach for, but a fine one nonetheless.

Septic Tank
Rotting

Band: Septic Tank. Album: Rotting. What else could it be but high-speed angry hardcore punk!?! Septic Tank are in fact 90’s veterans, with members of Cathedral and Repulsion among their numbers. They now return to bludgeon 2018 with eighteen tracks of entropic ferocity, circulated to the people by the Rise Above label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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 for a punk music production, but in simply having to keep up with all the the unfeeling, relentless machinery, Mark & pals show their energy.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Shark Toys
Labyrinths

Barking LA punkers Shark Toys are now In the Red (hopefully in label name only) with their new LP Labyrinths. The band are in good company on this label, particularly regarding authentically punkish band names: Boss Hog, Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds, The Urinals and Meatbodies. Their rapid-fire, canonical style also lets in a little classic rhythm & blues into the vocals - nice.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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 Bikini Kill track, but powering thoughtful arrangements and a mature emotional depth. The stylistic range stretches from the girl-group rush of No Way Out to the gothy post-punk doominess of Solitary.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Hinds / Los Nastys
Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

Here's a split 7" by two of Madrid's most lively punk and garage rock bands. In time worn style Hinds and Los Nastys have a go at playing each others songs and as a result have created a document of the much overlooked Madrid rock scene of which these two lots are major players. Brought to you on vinyl as red as the blood produced when a bull gores a picador. 

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 those in the know. It’s All Done By Mirrors is, without doubt, the band’s career high-point which mixes a kind of folk-punk with a pop touch and poetic lyrics.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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. The title track was the only single to be released from the album. There were also two covers: the Larry Williams blues tune Slow Down and Theme from Batman. Reissue LP on Polydor.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Hüsker Dü
Savage Young Dü

Something nice for fans of legendary post-punk racketeers Husker Du. 'Savage Young Du' is a journey through the young life of the band including early recordings, sessions and live performances as well as their classic early single 'Statues'/'Amusement'. All housed in deluxe set with book of photos and memorabilia. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

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.

Jawbreaker
Etc.

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 flowing. Among other things, Etc. features a medley of songs by U2, The Misfits and The Vapors called ‘With Or Without U2’, which is obviously great.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Lovely Eggs
This Is Eggland

This Is Eggland, the new album from The Lovely Eggs sees the psych-punks working with a producer for the very first time, somewhat eschewing their DIY ethos. They haven’t chosen just any old producer either, they’ve gone for the man who remodeled the sound of The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, Dave Fridmann. The title is a pun on This Is England, the Shane Meadows film, and a comment on the current state of Britain. Thematically, the duo preach how living a non-conventional, non-conformist lifestyle is the best way to be.

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. Obvious touchstones are Durutti Column and Joy Division as well as the doomier moments of The Cure’s discography. This edition has been remastered and comes with a whole extra vinyl of remixes and version.

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. Their best project was This Kind of Punishment, where their more experimental inclinations came to life; A Beard of Bees was a record of strange movements tethered by their dirgy melodic inclinations.

Marching Church
Live at Third Man Records

Ellias Bender Ronnenfelt (Iceage’s tortured artist in residence) takes his Marching Church project to Third Man Records. The live treatment suits Ronnenfelt very well. While his Scandi-Nick Cave thing can come across a bit laboured on his studio LPs, the frenzy of recording in the moment lends great bluster to these two pieces of Gothic Americana.

Ghosts Of Christmas Past

Who doesn’t love a good old alternative Christmas album? Les Disques du Crepuscule’s one Ghosts Of Christmas Past was first released in 1981, and has been updated in 1982 and also 2015. This version features old material from the likes of Aztec Camera and The Durutti Column, and new 2015 stuff from Gavin Bryars, Section 25 and many more, all getting festive. Double LP release.

The Apartments
The Evening Visits and Stays for Years (Expanded Edition)

The Apartments main man, Peter Milton Walsh made a big noise in the Brisbane alternative music scene of the late seventies and early eighties. So much so that none other than Grant McLennan and Robert Forster from fellow Brisbanites The Go Betweens asked him to join their band. He did, but not for long. They were chalk and cheese. Perhaps just as well really as The Evening Visits and Stays For Years, The Apartments debut album proper, wowed the British music press upon it’s original release in 1985. Thanks to Captured Tracks, we now have the reissued and expanded version to enjoy. The Evening Visits and Stays For Years is available on double vinyl LP with download code and CD.

The Soft Moon
Criminal

Luis Vasquez is angry. His latest album as The Soft Moon is Criminal, named for those that have hurt him, including himself. The songs are an aptly furious mixture of krautrock grooves, indie rock melodies, all lathered in so much distortion that this record could only come from Sacred Bones. Available on CD, vinyl, and limited edition white vinyl.

Moviestar
Stupid People Happy Days

Described as a 'reality experience', Moviestar have released Stupid People Happy Days on vinyl LP and CD. A complete mash-up of sci-fi sounds and fuzzy prog-rock, full of youthfulness and energy. Enough to break into the mainstream, but equally just enough to keep them indie. Released on Oh Yeah! / Sony Norway. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Structure
Structure

Brighton’s Structure enter the fray with six slices of throwback post-punk. Clearly massive fans of Wire, Gang Of Four et al, the group rip through the set with a speed and intensity that would make their angular ancestors proud. The jagged wiggle of tracks like ‘Dull’ and ‘Decline’ are austerity thrills ala Shopping and fellow Harbinger Sound punx Nachthexen. Elsewhere ‘Spit’ and ‘Waste’ are the sort of sub-two-minute system blowers that will never go out of fashion.

Sheer stacks of post-punk quality right here! Cherry Red seem to have picked out all the very finest slices of UK post-punk between the vintage years of 1977 and 1981, ending up with five full discs of magic! This Heat, Wire, The Pop Group, Josef K, Ultravox, Throbbing Gristle, The Fall… With the hefty booklet thrown in, this is one of the most entertaining and comprehensive history lessons you’ll find on the subject! 5CD box-set.

The Fall
Live: Uurop VIII-XII Places in Sun & Winter, Son

It's one of those live records by the Fall, that iconic British post-punk band that John Peel has announced roughly five hundred times. This one takes the best of the best in their recent performances, selecting cuts from the last three years of shows for Mark E. Smith and co. We know they have a lot of live releases, but considering their monolithic output, it's only fair -- how else are we gonna get live versions of all ten thousand Fall songs? 

The BellRays
Punk Funk Rock Soul, Vol. 2

You know the scene in Wayne’s World when Wayne and Garth go into the bar and Cassandra Wong’s band are playing? Well, The Bellrays sound quite a lot like that band (who, for the record, were called Crucial Taunt). Fusing hard-rock stylings with soulful vocals and banging choruses got CT a record deal, and it seems to have worked for The Bellrays too.

The Fall
The Fontana Years

Woaah there. A 6CD box set emanating from the type Mark E Smith and his merry troupe were signed to Fontana. This includes classic albums Extricate, Shiftwork and Code: Selfish plus all the singles, B sides  and John Peel Sessions from the era which was one of the most creative and vital periods of their long history.  

The Times
Go! With The Times

The Times were a post-punk/indie band from London. They were led by Ed Ball who had a stint in Television Personalities with school friend Dan Treacy before forming Teenage Filmstars, a band that eventually morphed into The Times. Go! With The Times was the album that they recorded first but didn’t release until 1985 as their 5th album. Ball seemingly picking up a recording and releasing trick from his beloved Beatles. Classic stuff.

The Good the Bad and the Zugly
Misanthropical House

Misanthropical Horse is the third album by Norwegian hardcore metal types, The Good, The Bad and The Zugly. You know what you’re going to get here - fast and loud with throat-ripping vocals. Much fun to be had! The album was mastered by Ruben Willem of Haust, and as with the previous pair of albums the artwork was drawn by satirical cartoonist, Flu Hartberg. LP and CD on Fysisk Format.
  • Genre(s):

Fucked Up
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White’s Third Man label continue their live sessions, pushing the pure analog love affair. These live ssions have covered an incredible array of artists, from Shabazz Palaces to The Shins, all recorded straight to tape and onto acetate. This time round it’s Canadian post-hardcore meddlers Fucked Up performing tracks spanning their releases 2009-2015.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Sekel
Sekel

The key words when needing to describe this band are 'punk' and 'Sweden', so you can pretty much come to your own conclusions about the nature of this record. This ten-track release is a cracking addition to most - if not all - punk/kraut music collections and is available on vinyl LP and released on Fuzz Club. 

The Hives
Barely Legal

Eek. They couldn't get away with an album title like that in 2017. This was the debut album from the band Alan McGee promised us would be our 'new favourite band'. They weren't but they had a good career anyway and this re-issue celebrates the 20th anniversary of this record of blistering punk music.   

Prettiest Eyes
Pools

Latest LP Pools from Los Angeles based three-piece Prettiest Eyes. Their psych-rock sound is a little more menacing than their name suggests, packing a punch with elements of noise and industrial thrown in. These guys come recommended by John Dwyer of Oh Sees. Pools is out on LP or CD on Castle Face.

The Fall
Creative Distortion

The Fall are English post-punk royalty, a Manchester band based around the constant supervision of one Mark E. Smith, who has remained their only eternal member. This double CD and DVD collects an epic and unbelievably long gig performed in the glorious Blackburn, all the way back in 2002. It looks over a variety of songs in their vast, storied discography.

Steve Ignorant's Slice Of Life
Just Another

Three-track seven-inch EP from the group led by former Crass frontman and current lifeboatman Steve Ignorant. Like the songs on his LP Love And A Lamp-Post they revolve around personal and social themes like a calmer and more introspective cousin to tour buddies and Harbinger Sound label mates Sleaford Mods. Contains a lyric sheet.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Sleaford Mods
Key Markets

Just as the UK goes back to the ballot box, our favourite agit-prop duo return with 'proper' album number three. Named after a particularly gruesome sounding supermarket in Grantham in the '70s and '80s, the album contains further ruminations on the disorientation of modern existence and the pointlessness of government politics. "It's a classic," they say...and from the sound of lead track the tight and rhythmic 'No-one's Bothered' who are we to argue?
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Arrows Of Love
PRODUCT: Your Soundtrack To The Impending Societal Collapse

Not to be confused with SOPHIE’s album of the same name, the second LP from East London bohemians Arrows of Love does a fine job of plugging the gap left by the ongoing hiatus of Fat White Family. There is genuine bite to tracks like ‘Toad’ and ‘Predictable’ that will strike the fear of God into the more lily-livered listener.

Toylettes
Toylettes

This Berlin punk outfit have a basic but effective approach that harks back to first generation bands like X-Ray Spex and Kleenex but there’s also a measure of anarcho-punk in there.This 10” from Harbinger Sound is a reissue of their 2015 debut cassette that was simply entitled Tape, and boasts no less than 13 concise tracks. 
  • Genre(s):

Horror Section
The Omen EP

Horror Section make it their mission to be a horror punk band without being trite and cheesy, and boy have they succeeded! The Omen EP is a direct tribute to the classic 1976 movie The Omen, and it channels those Satanic vibes into some nice’n’gnarly punk tunes. 7” single on Eccentric Pop Records.

Anxiety
Wild Life

Glaswegian punk brutalists Anxiety throw four more tracks at the wall, in the hope that the grimy song-sludge will stick. Wild Life is distorted and nasty-sounding and messy, yet it transmits a certain negative feeling with crystal clarity. Four track, seven inch EP, released by the La Vida Es Un Mus label.
  • Genre(s):

Spice Boys
Glade

Did it really take this many years for somebody to think of the band name ‘Spice Boys’? The answer is no. There are many of them. This is one of the latest, formed in Sweden in 2015. Their music doesn’t resemble the Spice Girls’ style as rendered by men, which would be cool, but rather some pretty dirty garage rock with heavily-pedalled guitars, crunchy riffs and filtered vocals. Also quite cool.

The Damned
Damned Damned Damned (2017 – Remaster)

If you’ve come to Norman Records with intention to purchase it’s likely you’re already familiar with this particular where-it-all-started punk classic. Damned Damned Damned is given the full 180-gram reissue treatment here, with interviews and think-pieces galore in the sleevenotes. Still sounds thrilling after all this time too.
  • Genre(s):

Television Personalities
Beautiful Despair

Beautiful Despair is an unreleased album by cult indie band, Television Personalities. Unreleased until now, that is! The album was recorded, but unfinished in 1990. Some tracks appeared in different guises elsewhere, but this is the first time they’ve been released in their original form. A couple of the tracks mention their indie contemporaries, Lawrence from Felt and Evan Dando from The Lemonheads, recalling experiences they’d shared. If you’re quick you can get a limited edition indies only marble vinyl version, otherwise it’s black vinyl or CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Thee Mvps
Sesh

Thee MVPS have been doing their thing ferociously all year long, and now they round out 2017 with a quick new single. Sesh stares modern millennial life fully in the face, and it isn’t impressed by what it sees, and throws some punchy punky guitar shapes in response. Sesh is a 7” single from Too Pure Singles Club.

The St Pierre Snake Invasion
Dick E Mozart

The St Pierre Snake Invasion’s new single, part of the Too Pure Singles Club, makes  a mockery of its own 7” format by being only one minute and sixteen seconds in length (although there is also a B-side). Dick E Mozart packs a lot into its tight duration though, sludging up your stereo with frantic hardcore.

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 in full on CD and vinyl editions! Both formats come with a booklet.

Nachthexen
EP

Born from the same fertile Sheffield scene as Sievehead and Community, Nachthexen bring together their self-titled 7” and 2015 cassette The Other on one neat 10” vinyl. The eight tracks here are all played with blistering energy and bring to mind comparisons with the likes of Good Throb and Le Tigre.

Chaos U.K
One Hundred Per Cent Two Fingers In The Air Punk Rock

Reissue of a long out of print album from Bristol based hardcore punk band Chaos UK. Self released in tiny numbers, the guys at Harbinger have collected it together with tracks from their split album with Japanese hardcore band Death Side that was also released in 1993, but only in Japan. Comes with photographs and notes.
  • Genre(s):

Zero Boys
Vicious Circle

Midwestern punk legends Zero Boys have their debut LP Vicious Circle reissued via Secretly Canadian. This 1981 record is a perfect hardcore salvo from the Indianapolis group. Snotty, melodic and fun all at once, Vicious Circle has plenty of give and take with early Black Flag (who, incidentally, also released their first full-length in 1981).
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Sleaford Mods
English Tapas

Returning with their first full length record for Rough Trade, it will be fascinating to find out what Sleaford Mods made of 2016. The title here refers to cuisine in a pub the pair visited that consisted of "half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie" - a menu that sums up the useless state of England, as viewed through the lens of lead ranter Jason Williamson. Featuring all new songs recorded with Steve Mackey (Pulp), this is sure to be one of 2017's most-anticipated releases.     
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Cyanide Scenario
Born To Die

Born To Die will delight fans of short-lived anarcho-punk crew Cyanide Scenario, as the material contained within has never previously been released! Recorded in 1986, the last year of the group’s existence, for a split that never came into being. Slightly gothy anarcho goodness, with track titles like ‘Awayday To Auschwitz’. Released at last as a mini-LP by Inflammable Material.

Dog Faced Hermans
Humans Fly

The debut album statement of Dog Faced Hermans, made available again for the first time since the initial 1988 release!

Really quite a special and original one, all remastered and all for your pleasure. LP reissue from Sorcerer.

An archive collection of rare and unreleased solo recordings from Dennis Young. Known as the percussionist for Liquid Liquid, this set of sixteen tracks compiles his out of band experiments between '82-83. There’s a homely feel to the recordings, thanks perhaps to Young recording them at home. Just a guess. It's understandably heavy on the drums. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Staubgold.

CTMF
In The Devil's Focus

Billy Childish and pals did sessions for both Marc Riley and Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music in July. This 10” collects both. These 10 tracks betray a new-found interest in the possibilities of granular synthesis… nah, you know exactly what to expect! Hashtag rocknroll, hashtag 77. Only 800 copies of this little beaut.

CTMF
What About Brian (Alt. Version) / The Fields In Mist

Billy Childish's current crew with an alternate version of a track from their fifth album, Brand New Cage. The A-side is an impassioned and perplexed protest at the omission of Brian Jones’ name from the plaque in Dartford Station commemorating the formation of the Stones. B-side exclusive to this 7”. As ever, zero progression, maximum class of 1977 vibes.

Various

Awesome punks from around the world are here, including Rakta, The Splits, Slum Of Legs and Shopping. Released on Emotional Response.

Godflesh
Post Self

Godflesh are known as an industrial metal band, but their 8th album, Post-Self, sees them move away from metal and experiment with industrial and post-punk sounds, exploring what inspired them in the first place. Lyrically the album deals with anxiety and depression, fear, mortality and paternal and maternal relationships.

Wild Evel and the Trashbones
Digging My Grave

Wild Evel and the Trashbones are a knockabout good-times garage-punk gang from Austria, with lots of lessons learned from both the original 60’s garage rockers and Billy Childish’s trash aesthetic revitalisations. Digging My Grave is a driving messy fuzzy torrent of leathery guitar action, released by Dirty Water.

The Underground Youth
Fuzz Club Session

As The Underground Youth were touring their eighth album, What Kind OF Dystopian Hellhole Is This? They dropped in at the studios of London-based label, Fuzz Club. As with previous Fuzz Club recordings, it was a celebration of all things analogue, putting the live band directly onto tape. This raw interpretation makes the Berlin-based psychedelic post-punks even more beautiful and haunting than before. Indies only, limited to 400 copies.

Bad Daddies

Razz
Time Frames

Backed up by members of Reptoids, Talkies and Sob Stories, Time Frames is blistering rock record with memorable melodies, 'ooo-ooos' all in the right places and a cracking debut. On Emotional Response.

Des Demonas
Des Demonas

Debut album from fresh young band Des Demonas, although be aware that this isn’t the first outing for most members (who’ve played with Kid Congo Powers, The Make-Up and Thee Lolitas variously). Des Demonas is an album of fast-chugging repeato-rock from that fertile and every-growing US garage-punk universe. Released by In The Red.

Suicide
First Rehearsal Tapes

Check out this chunk of alternative music history: Suicide’s first ever rehearsal, captured on tape in 1977 as Alan Vega and Martin Rev were just starting up their legendary dirty NYC synth-punk project. These formative recordings contain quite a lot of what was to come in embryonic form, so you really gotta hear it. Reissued to vinyl by Superior Viaduct.

Touche Amore
Stage Four

An unexpected move from LA band Touché Amoré here: if this was the first you’d heard from them, you’d be unlikely to guess that they have been a howling punk band for most of their career. And yet Stage Four is a sweeping suite of songs that are sung as songs, with the grace and careful construction of a band like The National. Nicely done. Out on Epitaph.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Shilpa Ray
Door Girl

Shilpa Ray’s album cover to Door Girl may make it look like a soundtrack album to a John Hughes film in the vein of Pretty in Pink or Ferris Buller’s Day Off, but I wouldn’t say that to her face. It’s a bile ridden album of bucolic punk rock, with Ray spitting and gurgling over you until you’re crying like a little wuss in the corner. Fun.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

The Hecks
The Hecks

The Hecks have a whole world of alt and avant-rock styles under their belt, and they deploy what they know with real aplomb. This self-titled album often feels like some vintage Sonic Youth, with just the right balance between indie-poppy songcraft and flared-up noisiness. A trio that will surely go far. CD / LP / Coloured LP on Trouble In Mind.

Lifetones
For A Reason

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

Cabaret Voltaire
The Crackdown

Here we have a reissue of Cabaret Voltaire’s fifth LP The Crackdown. The first full-length the band released after the departure of founding member Chris Watson, this is a disorientating and sinister set of industrial anti-pop tunes. The Normal and Fad Gadget are evoked by The Crackdown’s avant blend of techno, minimal wave, synth-pop and more. It was named the 11th best album of 1983 by the NME, don’t you know. The CD edition also includes the quartet of tunes that made up The Crackdown’s accompanying Doublevision EP.

The Times
This Is London

The Times were an ‘80s post-punk/indie band formed from the ashes of Teenage Filmstars by Ed Ball (Also previously of Television Personalities). This Is London was their 2nd album, originally released in 1983 and had a sound influenced by ‘60s garage and early Beatles records. A few Britpop bands probably owe them a debt of gratitude too. Reissue 180g LP and CD on Tapete. Each format limited to 500 copies.
