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.

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.

Not To

Colin Newman kept busy during Wire’s temporary early 80’s split, releasing three rather interesting solo records. Although in the case of Not To, some members of Wire were involved in the recording… Released on vinyl and CD: with the CD edition coming with an extra disc of mostly unreleased home studio demos. On Sentient Sonics.

New Order Presents Be Music

Be Music is the umbrella name for the various extracurricular activities that the individual members of New Order got up to in their time away from the band. Lots of productions and remixes for acts including Section 25, A Certain Ratio and Factory Floor. This overview release, spanning the whole course of the band’s existence, compiles twelve tracks on the double vinyl edition and thirty-six tracks on the triple CD edition.

Aquarian Blood
Last Nite In Paradise

Aquarian Blood are a band built around the husband and wife duo of Laurel Ferdon and JB Horrell, both of whom have played in a bunch of bands. When the other members of the group are added in, I imagine the whole of the Memphis weird-punk underground is represented in one way or another. Last Nite In Paradise is the debut full-length of this blasted outfit: quality madness music played at high speed. On Goner Records.

Laurie Shaw
Felted Fruit

Amalgamating vintage sounds with a contemporary slant, not unlike Cate Le Bon, Laurie Shaw’s music emanates the gentle ebb and flow of soft vocals and warm fuzz. The 30 tracks on this double album are certain to make their impression on you, like crashing waves carve out the rocks of the shaw. One can’t help but feel this album’s richness and authenticity from the outset.

Killing Joke
Brighter Than A Thousand Suns

Killing Joke’s sixth full-length album, initially released back in 1986, here gets reissued in style by Caroline. Brighter Than A Thousand Suns found the Joke playing a slightly more commercial version of their post-punk sound, with plenty of mid-80’s sweep in the production. Pressed to picture disc vinyl bearing a large image of Jaz Coleman’s face. Edition of 1000.
  • Vinyl LP (CAROLR51LP)
  • Genre(s):

Killing Joke
Fire Dances

Killing Joke’s fourth full-length album Fire Dances was first released in 1983, but the time is now right for a reissue. There is a bit more brightness in this album than in the group’s work up to this point, although there is still a sharp edge to their post-punk style. Pressed to picture disc vinyl bearing a fiery image. Edition of 1000, out on the Caroline label.
  • Vinyl LP (CAROLR52LP)
  • Genre(s):

Killing Joke
Outside The Gate

Killing Joke’s seventh album Outside The Gate is a little bit of an outlier in the band’s discography. For one thing, the non-Jaz Coleman members of the band are in many cases either not present or marginalised. And for another, the post-punk is mostly jettisoned in favour of synth-pop. My my. Reissued on picture disc vinyl in an edition of 1000, out on the Caroline label.

Has A Shadow
Sorrow Tomorrow

Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Has A Shadow release their second full-length dark offering of gothic, grunged-out post-punk on a black, 180gm slab of vinyl. And CD. Theirs is a sound that haunts and stalks the night, with stark, eerie vocal chants and murky bass rhythms serving as undercurrents to moonlit riffs and scuzz of “Sorrow Tomorrow”.

A-Z

Colin Newman kept busy during Wire’s temporary early 80’s split, releasing three rather interesting solo records. Although in the case of A-Z, some members of Wire were involved in the recording… This feels as lean and sharp-edged as all your favourite Wire, but with some different details in the sound. Released on vinyl and CD, with the CD edition coming with a whole extra disc of demos and the like. On Sentient Sonics.

Rainbowlicker
I Saw The Light, But Turned It Off

Rainbowlicker consider themselves to be a ‘laserpunk’, and in the absence of any other definitions, I’d say they suit the territory pretty well. The fuck-you attitude of the band is plenty punk, but the music is made up of shiny brash electronics. I Saw The Light, But Turned It Off is their debut album. Released by Svart.

Mike Watt
“ring spiel” tour ’95

In 1995, the Minutemen man Mike Watt embarked on a solo US tour, enlisting other alt-rock lifers like Eddie Vedder and Dave Grohl to back him up. “ring spiel” tour ‘95 is the first commercial release of a performance from this excellent tour, being a document of a set at Chicago’s Metro club. Exciting double LP release on Legacy.

Semi
Go Viral

Is this man screaming in severe, agonising pain? Quite possibly. But ultimately Go Viral is the disordered release of creativity from London's revered and anarchic noise-thrashers, Semi. Featuring blisteringly abrasive guitars, monstrous vox and freakishly distorted production values, this is not for the faint-hearted.
  • Vinyl 7" (MUS124)

Pere Ubu
New Picnic Time

New Picnic Time is the third album by Cleveland, Ohio’s experimental art-rockers Pere Ubu. It was originally released in 1979, it continued a run of classic albums that also included The Modern Dance and Dub Housing.The sessions for the album were so stressful that the band split after recording only to reform with Mayo Thompson replacing original guitarist Tom Herman.

Straight Arrows
Turn It Off / Dead and Bored (It Happens Again)

Straight Arrows have thrown together this tight 7” single for an upcoming tour of the states. Turn It Off and B-side Dead and Bored (It Happens Again) are a pair of high-energy, low-bullshit garage rockers, precision-tuned like a fast motorcycle. There are 300 copies of this 7” in existence, but 120 are reserved for the tour, so move fast!

LIINES
Disappear / Be Here

Amounting to the third single from Manchester-incepted post-punkers LIINES, is the bold and direct double-A Disappear / Be Here. Following up by acclaimed predecessors Never There and Blackout, this release continues the three-pieces' upward momentum with their use of catchy hooks and stomping beats.
  • Vinyl 7" (RY003)

The Lowest Form
Personal Space

The Lowest Form is the hardcore outfit of Helm dude and Alter bossman Luke Younger, although they are pleasingly free of any kind of sound-arty reconsiderations of hardcore. This is just fucking hardcore, noisy and aggressive and thrashy and great. Second album Personal Space is released by Harbinger Sound.
  • Vinyl LP (HARBINGER153)

Sex Swing
Sex Swing

More kraut racket for your worn out ears but this time with legs. This collective contain members of Part Chimp, Mugstar, Dethscalator and Earth and this is a brazen and rackety take on the Suicide/Silver Apples blueprint with squawking sax added for extra discordance and gruesome churning vocals that recall Gallon Drunk. You are going to hate it....or it could just be your favourite record of the year. Hold tight!  
  • CD (GID007CD)

Real Numbers
Wordless Wonder

Real Numbers are a good old dreamed-up indie pop act, formed from members of acts like Cozy, Private Interests and France Camp. Wordless Wonder is their debut full-length album, and it breezes along beautifully. Hovering harmonies and all sorts of interesting tales told in the lyrics. Out on the Slumberland label.

The Men
Devil Music

On Devil Music, The Men decided to throw a few new ideas into the mix such as cassette cut-ups and sax. It was recorded over one weekend in January 2016. They used the fact that they’d decided to make an album for themselves as inspiration. Devil Music is the Brooklyn punk rockers 6th album, but first since leaving the Sacred Bones label.

Code Orange
Forever

Code Orange have released their third album entitled Forever. The American band based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania bring about a refreshing burst of industrial hardcore onto a scene that is flooded with mediocre metal. Each album they release eats away at ‘genre-norms’ and instead present a medley of musical madness. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Spoilers
Anti Vibe

Energetic debut LP self-released by the London-based quartet. Musically the record draws from Spoilers' driving rhythms, Fugazi-inspired riffs and (melodic) noise recorded by Rory Attwell. Lyrically it cites honesty, being in love, anxiety and misplaced optimism. The band's post-hardcore roots from their earlier DIY cassette tape releases remain at the fore but with more time to experiment, Spoilers produce a well-rounded debut LP capable of being the hot knife that slices through the indie butter.

Ab Baars & Terrie Ex
Shifting Sands

Joy! That’s what spreads all around when Terrie Ex starts flailing on his guitar, grinning like mad (except when holding a drumstick in his teeth). He and reeds-player Ab Baars have recorded as a duo but not for years, so Shifting Sands is a treat to hear. High-level, highly entertaining improvisation from some quality Dutchmen. On Terp.

Sneaks
Gymnastics

Lo-fi and minimal post-punk from Washington based one woman band Sneaks. There’s an air of Siouxsie and The Banshees, but stripped back to bass guitar, drum machine and Eva Moolchan’s dry and tongue in cheek lyricism thrown in with a Sleaford Mods gritty punk-come-poetry apathy to a larger band sound.

Clever
Kewdi Udi

Brisbane punks Clever make a raucous high-speed music with strange math-rock structures and eccentric shouted vocals. Kewdi Udi is a horrifically great fusion of nihilistic hardcore and fearsome noise rock, where every song is a two-minute explosion of ideas and distortion. On vinyl LP from Homeless.
  • Vinyl LP (HOMELESS22)
  • Limited edition

Milemarker
Overseas

Prog showstoppers Milemarker have a long history of mixing a rigid post-hardcore element into synthy New Wave gloop, an undercurrent of math kinetics and metal showboating in the vox. Their new record, Overseas, panders to their old love of fronting guitars and giddily overbearing electronics. It's a bit silly, of course -- just the way they like it.

Broker
Quixota

Brighton boys Broker drop their second full-length album of tightly-wound mathed-up hardcore. Main geezer Duncan Harrison has a fierce howl on him, and the band clearly know their way around each other: plenty of Quixota’s tracks feature unpredictable breakdowns and prog-complex inversions. Well skilled. Vinyl release on Smalltown America.

The Flesh Eaters
Forever Came Today

Forever Came Today was originally released in 1982, standing proud as The Flesh Eaters’ third album. Non-nonsense punky rock business with plenty of swagger and spit. Forever Came Today has never been reissued before, so this remastered vinyl pressing is cause to celebrate. On Superior Viaduct.

Sublime
40oz. To Freedom

Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. 40z.

Remastered double LP on Universal.

Good Throb
Good Throb

Proper raw punk aggression from Good Throb, full of grit and sinew. This 4-track 7” includes ‘SCUM’, a Valerie Solanas tribute, and ‘The Queen Sucks Nazi Cock’. Sadly the last issue from this brutal crew for the foreseeable future. Good Throb is packed in vigorous artwork along with a poster.

Belgrado
Obraz

Belgrado are one of Barcelona’s finest post-punk groups, and Obraz is their third album. Sometimes they apply the lessons of dub in a way that might remind you of The Clash; at other times, they go full coldwave. They always have sharp edges though. 10-track LP on La Vida Es Un Mus, featuring an illustrated booklet.

Mystic Inane
EP's of M​/​I LP

Wild punk action from New Orleans. Mystic Inane sound like they’ve got themselves wasted on some homemade hooch and felt the need to flail around in a studio shouting at the walls. Needless to say, that means they are good. EPs of M/I LP is a collection of three previous 7”s, upgraded to full LP status. On La Vida Es Un Mus.

The Cavemen
Born To Hate

The London based New Zealand band The Cavemen have released their first full length album called Born To Hate. A nostalgic mix of garage-rock and hardcore punk that can be credited to the boys use of turbocharged anger and humorous lyrics that compliment a not-at-all rhythmic musical accompaniment! Available on Vinyl LP and CD.  
  • CD (DWC1090CD)

Slaves / Wonk Unit
Take Control / We Are The England

Slaves, the Tunbridge Wells punky outfit responsible for one of our least favourite singles from the last year, have persuaded another band to associate with them. Wonk Unit take the B-side of the Take Control / We Are The England split single. And those titles makes me think: is this a Brexit single? 1500 7” copies out there on Virgin EMI.

MX-80 Sound
Crowd Control

MX-80’s sound has always been a rare thing, combining the sharp edges and harsh energy of post-punk and noise-rock with lessons learned from modern classical composition and free jazz. Plus plenty of absurdist lyrics! MX-80 need more recognition for their excellent avant activities, and this re-release of Crowd Control (the album’s first ever reissue) could help!

MX-80’s sound has always been a rare thing, combining the sharp edges and harsh energy of post-punk and noise-rock with lessons learned from modern classical composition and free jazz.

PUNK 45: Les Punks: The French Connection. The First Wave Of Punk 1977-80

Including an array of bands spearheading their scene, such as Marie et Les Garcons, Metal Boys and Fantomes, this offering is a glorious celebration of the first wave of French punk. Brought to you by UK label Soul Jazz Records, the record truly captures the zeitgeist during an anarchic and feral time in music.

Cocaine Piss
The Dancer

Cocaine Piss taste just precisely as nasty as they ought to with a name like that: thrashing super-speed punk that spits riot grrrl-style righteous bile in yer face. Oh, and The Dancer was recorded by Steve Albini, so there are no airs or graces about this production. Fierce! Released by the Hypertension label.

  • Genre(s):

Petrol Girls
Talk Of Violence

Petrol Girls are an entirely fierce ball of feminist rage, kicking out gloriously at all enemies with howled bile-filled lyrics and tight snarls of hardcore punk. Talk Of Violence (yeah there’s a good deal of that) is their first full-length album release, following on from a pair of 7”s. Released by Bomber Music.

From the Manchester kings of post-punk who were sadly taken away from us much too soon comes +/- (Plus/Minus) by Joy Division. Featuring the obvious hits of Transmission and Love Will Tear Us Apart as well as alternative versions and other less well known songs. If you’ve never really listened to Joy Division, this is a great gateway. CD Boxset.

Substance 1977-1980

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on wax. Substance 1977-1980 contains most of your Joy Division favourites, and has been expanded by two tracks.

VENN
RUNE002LP

Second 12” from London / Berlin band VENN. RUNE002LP is a little less utilitarian in sound than it is in title, with catchy tunes sung over slinky tracks that were apparently built out of both brand new bespoke parts and older sounds of uncertain provenance. Released by the the group’s own Rune label.
  • Vinyl 12" (RUNE002LP)

City Yelps
The City Yelps Half Hour

City Yelps are a Leeds band of scrappy young guitary things, following up a single and a tape with a full-length debut. The City Yelps Half Hour has had the privilege of being produced by Mick Flower of Vibracathedral Orchestra, so its garage-rock-punk songs sound spot on. LP out on Odd Box in an edition of 250.

Terry Malts
Lost At The Party

Overdriven indie pop that keeps the grit and drive of their favourite punk albums. Think The Buzzcocks or The Undertones waking up and getting into joyous pop. Keeping the riffs, the energy and the trashy back line sound, but a sprinkle of catchy oohs and ahhhs and cleanly sung vocal choruses. Positive energy.

Killed By Deathrock Vol. 2

If unfamiliar with the Death Rock movement these series from Sacred Bones are a great bit of exploration. An offshoot of punk rock that emerged in California in the late 1970s it is punk rock but infused with a load of effects (warbling reverb mainly) and horror themes. Features Veda, Middle Class, Crank Call Love Affair.
  • CD (SBR3019CD)

EXEK
Biased Advice

Melbourne band Exek have their first full-length album to show off. Their sound is not a sunny one: instead, this music feels like it was made in some shady garage before a hard rain, late at night. The production on these post-punk songs is laced with dub, with a coldly groovy effect. Biased Advice is out on Another Dark Age.
  • Vinyl LP (ADA007)

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 remastered. On Optic Nerve.

Debut international EP from Yung, a Danish four-piece melodic punk band. One for fans of the sensational Ty Segall, Jay Retard and definitely the Replacements. Six tracks on limited edition 12” vinyl. Yung are young, fresh and urgent, too fast to dance to and to slow to feel down to. Nobody cares is a pretty stand out track. Big things from Tough Love.

Mike Rep and The Quotas
Hellbender

Sweaty, gritty, gold. Sounding like a nutter running around a single mic in a room and someone hitting cardboard boxes, and to be fair it probably was. Filled to the brim with energy, reminds me of the tunes written by Beck for fictional band Sex Bob-Omb but with manic laughter and screams. Hellbender has loads of previously unreleased madness recorded between ‘75 and ‘78.
  • Vinyl LP (HZR-182)

Warehouse
Super Low

Warehouse are an Atlanta GA band who tap into the marvellously fertile Athens jangle pop/art rock scene of the early 1980's. In fact the band provide the perfect R.E.M like backing for the remarkable growling vocals of Elaine Edenfield who bears an uncanny resemblance to Pylon's Vanessa Briscoe Hay. Quite remarkable. This could be a really interesting one when you bear in mind the band have also been listening to Deerhunter rather a lot I'd imagine.

Miss Destiny

The girls are outshining the boys once again with this debut album from Melbourne based Miss Destiny. Bullet belts, leather jackets, pounding fists, and banging heads. Raucous big stage presence with a DIY edge and a serious message as well as Danzig, beer, punk rock, friends, and the open road in tow.

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 and The Cramps.

Exploded View

Exploded View is the latest project of Anika, the haunted-voiced German artiste.

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 of punk, free jazz, dub, funk and avant-garde elements.

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.

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 remarkably well together. Fun stuff on the Fire label.

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, angry power chord punk song. Bizarrely The Side Eyes vocal reminded me of The Donnas, take that how you will.

Negative Growth

It's on In the Red, this one, so you can expect the usual Psychic-type Pokemon approach to punk rock. Slapstick garage rockers Ex-Cult make tunes for ye who prefer it sweet 'n' simple and they had the production hand of Ty Segall too. They describe the record as the sound of "ghost notions that swirl around your room while you sleep", and Negative Growth certainly skews towards the more ominous side of proceedings -- last time we heard them they reminded us of no frills acts like Reagan Youth mixed with early the Men. We'll see about this one, now won't we?

Holy Serpent
Temples

Skater-psych rock-metal from Melbourne here, with the second album from Holy Serpent. Temples is a bit speedier than their debut, but it still fits only five tracks into a 44 minute running time, leaving plenty of time to sink into a stoner-haze of fuzz and riffs and reverbed howls. Temples is out on RidingEasy.

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.

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.

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 the top 50 records to be released ever.

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 to shout at you about it.

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, self-released on 7” vinyl.

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 been released and others of which have been functionally unavailable ever since the original records sold out. And the vinyl edition has a DVD of a live show too! On Family Vineyard.

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. Debut full-length Rattle is out on Upset The Rhythm.

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 Jeffries low-voiced prettiness isn't in evidence. Fans of Flying Nun records need to grab these much sought after releases.

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 seemingly took the nasty bits with him whilst Graeme's music is much sweeter so we are left with a delightful LP of melodic, chiming pop.

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 clip. You will want to buy this.

The Monochrome Set
Cosmonaut

Trace back from The Last Shadow Puppets, Franz Ferdinand et al any you’ll find The Monochrome Set. They originally formed in 1978, as part of the first wave of post-punk, and give most contemporaries a run for their money. Grand and smokey dive bar music, that would fit soundtracking a coming of age indie flick.

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. And the 70 beautifully-bound pages are accompanied by 17 songs on an accompanying CD, so you can read about and hear the bands at the same time. F*ckin’ Ziggurat!

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 Γυναικείο Κεφάλι, or, in English, Colossal Female Head, is a 3-track 7” released by La Vida Es Un Mus.

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, is especially wonderful.

Okkultokrati
Raspberry Dawn

Hard to pin this one down apart from to note that it is well heavy… Okkultokrati have hard rock at their core, but with plenty of influence from punk, post-punk, metal and black metal. New album Raspberry Dawn even finds them adding a synth player into the mix, for even wider possibilities! Dark forest music on Southern Lord.

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 very wordy and angular.

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 names in London's jazz scene. Available on CD.

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 label.

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's mumbled, shouted and shrugged -- but never truly articulated.

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, Somerset. Fresh liner notes too! Just 1000 2LP copies out there.

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 lyrics are spat out at the listener, not for the fainthearted.

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/Preoccupations axis. There’s a hint of Krautrock in the drumming and the swirling guitars and it reminds me of bands like TOY or Can, whilst keeping that punk rock energy throughout.

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 Trux. On Sacred Bones.

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, SLF, Sex Pistols and The Dils.

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 demos, and comes with original artwork and a poster!

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 the strange motorik mixture of krautrock, synthpop and no-wave that was spreading across the bay like a rash.

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 deliberately dark Flenser label.

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 the epic widescreen scope of a lot of post-rock. Smother is out on Deathwish Inc.

Drenge

This is about as exciting as it gets for a new band: the release of a much anticipated debut album. When it comes to making music, caution is clearly absent from the two Leicestershire brothers’ constitutions. This is an explosive, gripping and loud start to a career that clearly points towards a promising future.
