Folk Devils
Beautiful Monsters (Singles and Demo Recordings 1984-86)

Folk Devils shone briefly in the mid-1980’s: Beautiful Monsters gathers together all of their singles and throws in a bundle of previously unheard demo recordings. Post-punk with an aggressive and political edge. This is the first release of these singles in quite some time, and the very first time on CD. All rema...view item »

Slaves
Take Control

Energised and fervent second album from mercury faves, Slaves. Produced by ex-Beastie Boy Mike D (He also guests on one of the tracks), they push into heavier and more politically charged material. Tonally you can hear Mike D’s sheen, mixing 90s hip-hop and elements of The Damned...view item »

Void
Raw Material (Requisitioned) / Post-Atomic

Two tracks excavated from 1979 here, right from the heart of the punk / new-wave crossover. Raw Material (Requisitioned) / Post-Atomic is a punchy and quick pair of tracks, and the 7” comes packed in a bag along with the 36 page zine Defiant Pose Issue 9, plus a postcard of retro punk gig posters. All on Inflammable Mater...view item »

The Pop Group
Honeymoon on Mars

Post-punk pioneers the Pop Group return with new LP 'Honeymoon On Mars'. A concept album of sorts, Mark Stewart calls it "hypersonic journey into a dystopian future full of alien encounters and sci-fi lullabies". Fans of their previous work won't be disappointed: 'Honeymoon On Mars' still pertains to the band's successful hybrid...view item »

Duchess Says
Sciences Nouvelles

Duchess Says seem to be working a very interesting seam indeed, crossing over fuzzy psych with cold-wave synths and Italo disco grooves. Plus a little bit of punks-from-space? Very hard to pin down, but very easy to enjoy. Sciences Nouvelles is their third album, and is released by the Slovenly label....view item »

Rats On Rafts / De Kift
Rats On Rafts / De Kift

Rats On Rafts / De Kift is not a split, no no. This is a full-blooded collaboration, with the two different flavours of Dutch joy being combined into one single band. The songs played are taken from Rats On Rafts and De Kift’s respective catalogues, with punky flair and ensemble brass mixing remar...view item »

Red Kross / Side Eyes
Songs That Chargo Taught Us

Punk bands Red Kross and The Side Eyes each cover a track written by Go-Go’s lead guitarist Charlotte Caffey. Both equally amped up re-imaginings, Screaming is a garage punk tune with loads of energy, while Don’t Talk to Me is a driving, ballsy, ang...view item »

D.O.A.
World War 3

As with most great punk tracks, World War 3 was recorded on nothing more than cheap booze and shoe strings, by a group of friends, with a truly poignant story to tell. Here, it’s the cold war, and punk rock was the perfect antithesis. Repressed and re-released 37 years later, it’s just as powerful. Punk rock, that is...view item »

Wipers
Youth of America

Nice re-issue of the second album from Greg Sage's post-punk greats. This is where the band got all cold and nihilistic and spread six long tracks that burn with a fiery intensity across the LP. It's a harsh angular sound that influenced Mission of Burma amongst others and led Kurt Cobain to consider it one of t...view item »

Nots
We Are Nots

Nots are Natalie Hoffmann (guitar) Charlotte Watson (drums), Madison Farmer (bass) and Alexandra Eastburn (synthesiser). This grrl band are reminiscent of L7 and Bikini Kill, full throttle, loud and punk, with Eastburns synths bringing something a little different to the table. The Memphis girls are angry, aggressive and ready t...view item »

Juliet and The Raging Romeos
Good Girl / Venus

Juliet & The Ranging Romeos are a highly international (4 countries are represented in the line-up) garage-rock crew. They have a good ear for pop melodies as well as a strong, leather-clad attitude, and front-person Juliet carries off the role with aplomb. Good Girl / Venus is their debut single, s...view item »

Dow Jones and The Industrials
Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981

Dow Jones and The Industrials, who have one of the best band names I’ve seen in ages, were a US art-punk outfit from the turn of the 80’s, who couldn’t stand living in the very un-art-punk Midwest. Can’t Stand The Midwest contains a stack of their simple-but-weird tracks, some of which have never...view item »

Rattle
Rattle

Rattle are a magical double drums duo, somehow creating memorable, tuneful songs with carefully-schemed drum patterns and some vocals: rhythmic alchemy. Katherine and Theresa play in Kogumaza and Fists respectively, but this has to be their most impressive work....view item »

The Cakekitchen
World of Sand

Coming not long after The Cakekitchen's marvellous 'Time Flowing Backwards' (also re-issued on Dais) comes 'World of Sand'. This time head man Graeme Jeffries worked with his live band and if the album doesn't quite have the magical charm of  'Time....' it has more variation and a slightly harsher sound palette. That's not to say that Jeffr...view item »

The Cakekitchen
Time Flowing Backwards

Another classic New Zealand gets a re-issue with this lovely 1991 era LP from Graeme Jeffries outfit. Jeffries had started out in ace post punkers Nocturnal Projections before forming the magnificent This Kind of Punishment with brother Peter. When the Jeffries brothers went their separate solo ways Peter seemin...view item »

Archie and The Bunkers
Mystery Lover

Archie and the Bunkers are two home-schooled siblings from Ohio. They record music in their basement when they are supposed to be doing their schoolwork. And, it's completely brilliant! Emmet capably handles the vocals and frantic, crazy thrashed drums whilst brother Cullen plays some seriously disturbed synth. Just have a listen to the sound cl...view item »

F*Ckin’ Ziggurat

Fancy zine / book assembled by Emotional Response, featuring deep interviews with lots of cool bands from around the world, including No Monster Club, Primitive Calculators and Quaaludes.

Efialtis
Κολοσσιαίο Γυναικείο Κεφάλι (Colossal Female Head)

Efialtis are an international trio with strong femme power and a fierce approach. Songs are sung in Greek and played in gnarly punk style: tight but not sleek, with a good deal of grit and anger sizzling out of the speakers. Κολοσσιαίο Γυνα&i...view item »

Cherrystones: Critical Mass / Splinters From The Worldwide New-Wave, Post-Punk and Industrial Underground 1978 – 1984

Get away from here with your overly Anglocentric narratives of post-punk! As Cherrystones: Critical Mass / Splinters From The Worldwide New-Wave, Post-Punk and Industrial Underground 1978-1984 demonstrates, incredible stuff was being made all over the place, pushing the envelope ever further. The first track, from Rheingold...view item »

Sex Stains
Sex Stains

This horribly named quartet feature members of luminaries such as Bratmobile and Warpaint and they seem to exist purely to bring scratty pop punk back from the late '70s or wherever it was last left. They aim to provide thought provoking punk welded to infectious rhythms that you can dance to and they are v...view item »

Penny Rimbaud’s L’Académie Des Vanités
Yes Sir, The Truth Of Revolution

During the political unrest of the Faulklands conflict, 1982's 'Yes sir, I will' by Crass was as hard-hitting as they come. Writer Penny Rimbaud re-imaged the piece for Blackpool's Rebellion Festival thirty years later, taking the original sentiment and applying it to the current political climate. The recording features some of the leading name...view item »

Spray Paint / Exek
Split

Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas post-punk group, with a music that is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy. Here they share a split with Australians Exek, who synth up their post-punk sound. 400 7" copies pressed up for an Australian tour, released by the Homeless...view item »

Spray Paint
Clean Blood, Regular Acid

Spray Paint are a loose and chilled out noise rock outfit with abrasive production, sharp guitar riffs and dual vocals that recall a stoned Parquet Courts staring blankly into space. The energy is there, but it's used leisurely, as if the band can rip through these songs without blinking. 'Clean Blood, Regular Acid' is ramshackle post-punk that'...view item »

Amebix
Monolith: The Power Remains

This Amebix record has had a slightly tricky release history (something to do with label wranglings), but the important thing is that this slab of classic heavy rock is now properly available again. What’s more, this reissue of Monolith: The Power Remains adds one side of demos and one side of a live gig in Bath, ...view item »

Nailhouse
Nailhouse

These are from Newcastle, Australia but their sound is not unlike the rainy stink you might have thought come from a pre-makeover Newcastle, England. They play a very intense form of sludgy rock which reminds me of their fellow countrymen the Birthday Party and endless churners Swans. Over torrential guitars lyr...view item »

Pete Shelley
Cinema Music & Wallpaper Sounds

Buzzcocks frontman Pete Shelley's electronic dabblings, as unearthed by Jon Savage. Dating back to 1976, which is basically before electronic / synthesiser music even really existed, these recordings are pretty fascinating. Experimental pre-punk from before Shelley's punk pop years. Get it on vinyl. ...view item »

Trust Punks
Double Bind

Get ready for some noisy, young avant punk courtesy of New Zealand group; Trust Punks. Double Bind is a tight rock album which isn’t afraid to go off and do its own thing; from deep, menacing tunes to simple chord punk rock that's most reminiscent of the Women/Viet Cong/...view item »

Warm Widow
Childless

Warm Widow’s previous album ‘Widower’ was an absolute stone cold classic, one of those rare records that if it does leave my stereo, it doesn’t wait long before crawling back. Sounding something like Guided By Voices and The Fall circa ‘78 locked ...view item »

Cheena
Spend The Night With...

New York five piece Cheena bring a truly American rock ‘n’ roll sound to the table on their debut album, Spend The Night With….They cook up a glam-tinged sound that falls somewhere between Kiss and the New York Dolls that is also likely to please fans of Royal...view item »

Hard Left
Economy EP

As their name would suggest Hard Left are a band that promote left-wing ideals. Principally, however, they are a a mod-tinged punk band who have a lot of fun. Economy EP is packed with coarse-throated vocals, raw guitars, band chants - everything you’d expect from anthemic punk. For fans of The Clash, ...view item »

Phantom Forth
The EEPP

Phantom Forth recorded The EEPP for release on Flying Nun in 1984. It offers an insight into one corner of New Zealand’s low-key DIY underground scene: apparently a dark and shadowy corner judging by the coldwave / post-punk stylings on display here. This Dark Entries reissue is fully remastered, features 2 bonus ...view item »

Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol. 2

The BART is the rail transport system which connects San Francisco's Bay Area, and so it should come as no surprise that this is a compilation of music from that area around the late '70s and early '80s. With contributions from the likes of Factrix, Chrome and Tuxedomoon as well as lesser known artists from the scene, this compilation records th...view item »

All Your Sisters
Uncomfortable Skin

All Your Sisters are proudly in love with a certain part of the 1980’s when industrially-vibed post-punk was all the rage. Their second album Uncomfortable Skin nails that particular sound with stern drum machines, obscured vocals and Cureish guitars. Lots of shadowy swagger, released by the delib...view item »

7 Year Bitch
Live At Moe

90’s punk exploders 7 Year Bitch release this 1996 live recording on Moe Recordings. Live At Moe is a pretty gnarly dash through the band’s material, performed to a no-doubt thrilled crowd. The tapes were uncovered from the label owner’s basement and are being issued to keep the 7 Bitch ...view item »

The Julie Ruin
Run Fast

The new band from Bikini Kill/Le Tigre lady Kathleen Hanna (hopefully that’s shifted a few copies already) is a raucous age-defying affair and also features Bikini Kill alumni Kathi Wilcox. They certainly sound reinvigorated, veering wildly between sexy slithery '60s sleaze w...view item »

Frameworks
Smother

Emotional hardcore band Frameworks return with a second full-length, sounding both more emotional and more hardcore than ever before. The heartfelt anguish of the frontman can’t be disputed as he howls his throat raw over the actually-quite-pretty instrumental tracks, and the whole thing has...view item »

These Arms Are Snakes
Tail Swallower and Dove

Comes on like vintage Fugazi early, then the keyboard burbles kick in at the end of "Woolen Heirs" and the album becomes something else entirely. Honestly, while I'm a fan, I was a little afraid that this album would just be 'more of the same'. I'm pleased that These Arms Are Snakes continued with the sound we're acc...view item »

Pylon
Live

Pylon existed right in the centre of that fertile Athens, GA scene in the early 80’s until they spontaneously vanished. This record isn’t just a live Pylon show: it's a document of the last set they ever played. The group sound on premium form, the vocal howls as demented as you like while the rhythm...view item »

Alan Parker
One Summer

1983’s British TV show One Summer was blessed with a particularly interesting soundtrack produced by Alan Parker, whose session work saw him turning up on Kate Bush and David Bowie records. All sorts of sharp atmospheres here. The whole of his original score (the tracks are very s...view item »

Soviet Soviet
Nice

Soviet Soviet, who are, curiously enough, an Italian band, created and self-released the tracks on Nice as a variety of singles from 2008 onwards: they they were digitally compiled in 2011, and now they are at last pressed to wax together. This is the band’s earliest ma...view item »

Entracte Twist
Christine Young

Pretty slick indie-punk action here from Entracte Twist, an up-and-coming band from France. Christine Young has a low-slung 80’s kind of swagger to it, stylish and rude. This is the first ever vinyl release from the charmingly-named Croque Macadam label; a 7” single limited to 350 copies....view item »

The Modern Lovers
Live

Led by Lou Reed-fanboy supreme Jonathan Richman, The Modern Lovers were and still are renowned for their upbeat summer rock sounds.

Terry
Terry HQ

With the sad demise of Wogan there's room for another Terry in town. This Terry contain members of Total Control and make music which owes a lot to those scratchy post-punk types. They often sing all together in a kind of communal depressed football team style. For fans of early the Chills, Swell Maps...view item »

Hallelujah! / Holiday Inn
Split

Two Italian groups share some 7” wax on the latest split from Maple Death Records. Holiday Inn play stripped-back synth-punk and Hallelujah! play full-band noise punk, but what we can’t stress enough is how lo-fi, overdriven and just generally blasted both acts sound. Messy and nasty and ever so much...view item »

VHS
Gift of Life

VHS are a bleak-stare post-punk outfit with a fierce outlook and a blasted aesthetic. Main songwriter Josh Hageman uses his day job to provide heavy tales of medical sufferings, which are capably accompanied by the wiry-harsh guitars and relentless rhythm section pummel.

Limited edition of 350, on Agitated...view item »

The King Blues
Off With Their Heads

You may remember that The King Blues broke up four years ago, leaving their punk rocking ways behind them. Those four years have seen Cameron and his cronies in government and clearly the prospect of another four years has spurred the band back into action. Off With Their Heads is a seven track EP, putting the p...view item »

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.

The Tempest
5 Against The House

Efialtis
Efialtis

Efialtis do punk like the punks used to in the 80’s: crunching riffs, pounding rhythms and an Oi! Attitude.

GØGGS
GØGGS

GOGGS are yet another band who feature the world's most active garage rocker Ty Segall. This time he's on guitar whilst Chris Shaw 'smokes the mic' as the press release confirms.

Sublime
Robbin' The Hood

Ska-punks Sublime went almost experimental with their second album Robbin’ The Hood, which was recorded to a 4-track machine at home, lending it a lo-fi feel.

Sublime
Stand By Your Van

Seminal Californian Ska band Sublime release remastered versions of seven of their albums on vinyl.

Thee banner garage rawk band played the Chapel out in San Francisco, launching their happy-go-lucky psychedelia into a crowd of possibly stoned hopefuls.

Mrs Magician
Bermuda

Mrs. Magician’s second album Bermuda is a particularly energetic (even if lyrically heavy) piece of pop-punk. Kind of fuzzy and noisy, but also kind of sleek-sounding. Released on Swami Records, the imprint of the Drive Like Jehu / Rocket From The Crypt dude of the same (nick)name...view item »

Savages
Adore Life

Savages return! Second album Adore Life is just as ferocious as their debut, but the intervening touring has allowed them to be even better at it.

Diamond Teeth Clenched

Cellular Chaos is a band born of the vision of Weasel Walter, who has worked with Jim O’Rourke, Lydia Lunch and The Flying Luttenbachers over the years. This project, now up to their second album, is a no-wave / post-punk glam-action group, with lashings o...view item »

Charnier
Charnier EP

Minimal / brutal aesthetic post-punk from Charnier, a trio from Brussels.

Visitors
Poets End

The materials gathered on Poets End were all originally recorded thanks to the benevolence of John Peel between 1979 and 1981, Peel doing his usual excellent job of documenting crucial slices of the underground. Visitors were an excellent post-punk gang after all. 4 of these recordings ...view item »

The Lines
Hull Down

The Lines are something of a cult group, hanging out in that special space where no-one bought their records, but those that did held them close to their hearts. That means that the release of Hull Down will be a huge deal to a few people, being a ‘lost’ third album that has not previously been heard! Hopefu...view item »

Zig Zags
Running Out Of Red

Zig Zags are a band still in love with old-school thrash metal, but instead of filtering it into some trendier new genre, they just follow their hearts and start headbanging.

Thee Headcoats
The Messerschmitt Pilot's Severed Hand

Papier Tigre
The Screw

Papier Tigre emanate from France, where they have developed a hybrid of mathy angular post-punk and catchy poppiness, with a good dose of let’s-try-this experimentalism in there too.

AJ Cornell & Tim Darcy
Too Significant To Ignore

Greys
Outer Heaven

Greys started out as a noise rock band, and, to an extent, they still are. But on Outer Heaven, the harshness sits alongside notably-melodic tunes and some more dream-pop textures. So what they end up with is both sweet and sour, and also charged with an angry / ecstatic energy: a pretty great formula! On Carpark....view item »

Heavy Times
Black Sunglasses

Heavy Times are a garage-rock band who are always worth your attention: for this new single on the HoZac label they add raw synth to the mix, where it sits comfortably with the frantic rhythm and Nick Cave-esque vocals on the title cut.

Made In Japan
Instant Hit / You've Never Had It So Good

Made In Japan were unearthed by the HoZac label after hearing their work in New Year’s Evil, a 1980 B-movie. The band never made it far, but it turns out their power-pop / rock is high-quality.

It's too bad a band this good, like Brit counterparts Squeeze, haven't exactly tapped into the greater public awareness, but for those in the know, it's a cherished secret.

Jello Biafra with The Melvins
Never Breathe What You Can't See

Half the songs on here sound like Plastic Surgery Disasters-era Dead Kennedys. Which shouldn't be a surprise because the Melvins had offered to be Jello's backing band after the ex-Kennedys sued the crap out of him and reformed with a new singer (playing only the old songs) and right before Jello got his new band together. If you like the DKs or Je...view item »
