Arabrot
The Gospel

New record from heavy adventurers Arabrot. The Gospel follows Kjetil Nernes’ recovery from throat cancer, so it is understandably thoughtful about mortality. Not that the band hold back here: grinding basslines and pounding industrial rhythms are very much present, and The Gospel remains ...view item »


Melt Yourself Down
Last Evenings On Earth

Frenzied super-group Melt Yourself Down (members of Polar Bear and Zun Zun Egui, plus Shabaka Hutchings) return with a second album! Last Evenings On Earth, which takes its name from a Roberto Bolano text, is a pre-apocalypse party record of immense ene...view item »


The Underground Youth
Haunted

The Underground Youth a.k.a Craig Dyer presents another psychedelic record from the industrial bowels of Manchester. There’s a sense of 90’s reverence on display without cosying up to outright nostalgia. Mesmerising and texturally rich, Haunted is just that. Out on CD and limited Coke Bottle colour vinyl LP ...view item »


Sauna Youth
Dreamlands

This debut LP proper from Sauna Youth is very much an album of two sides, with the first being taken up by the opening track ‘Town Called Distraction’, “a spoken-word short story written by Patrick Fisher (of Cold Pumas) ...view item »


Eagulls
Ullages

Leeds favourites Eagulls make a slight move away from the hard-and-fast rush of their debut album with this follow-up. Ullages finds the band diving head first into the territory of 1980’s post-punk: think along the lines of early Cure cut with a little shoegaze. I must say, they wear it well. Rel...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 »


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 Green Bananas
The Ape / Green Banana

The Green Bananas are a side project of Australian weirdo indie band Straight Arrows. With their new single, and sure-fire massive hit The Ape, they attempt to create a primitive yet electrifying new dance craze. The b-side contains an eponymously titled instrumental. 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 Tempest
5 Against The House

The Tempest were a John Peel-approved, semi-obscure 80’s post-punk outfit whose splintered members would later go on to do time in Venus Fly Trap, Spacemen 3 and Spiritualised. 5 Against The House has them rocking a angular guitar / funky bass com...view item »

Efialtis
Efialtis

Efialtis do punk like the punks used to in the 80’s: crunching riffs, pounding rhythms and an Oi! Attitude. This self-titled 7” is their first ‘proper’ release, with 3 new recordings of songs from their previous demo and a brand new one. The Greek vocals are particularly good. Edition o...view item »


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. The band also quote, reference and sample a panoply of other artists from the reggae and rock worlds. Double LP, freshly remastered, on Universal....view item »


Sublime
Second-Hand Smoke

Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. Second-Hand Smoke is a fairly suitable title: this 1997 release is a compilation with a real mixed-up tracklist, including remixes and recycling of older material, unheard stuff, and covers of the likes of Bob Marley. All remastered and re-released as a doub...view item »


Sublime
Sublime

Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. This 1996 self-titled album was their third and final, recorded in a heroin haze and cutting in hip-hop and bluesy influences to augment the ska. The tracklist includes cover versions of Bob Marley and Gershwin as well as a pile of Sublime...view item »


Sublime
Stand By Your Van

Seminal Californian Ska band Sublime release remastered versions of seven of their albums on vinyl. This one, the amusingly named live recording 'Stand by your Van' was originally released following the untimely death of singer / guitarist Bradley Nowell. Sadly, the band didn't enjoy massive mainstream success until he was no longer around to en...view item »


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 »
  • Reduced from £12.99 - saving you £5.20


Cellular Chaos
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 »


Dag Nasty
Cold Heart / Wanting Nothing

The session that produced Cold Heart and Wanting Nothing for Dag Nasty’s new 7” saw the Washington DC band’s original lineup of Brian Baker, Shawn Brown, Roger Marbury and Colin Sears reunite in the studio for the first time since 1985. It also marks their return to the legendary Disch...view item »


Scream
Fumble

Scream-Dischord records other "stars" (see Minor Threat) come at you on this release with both barrels burnin'. "Fumble" is a downright killer...from the Bad Brains-influenced "Land Tore Down", seriously impassioned vocals by Peter Stahl on the pounding "Dying Days", the very Wo...view item »


Charnier
Charnier EP

Minimal / brutal aesthetic post-punk from Charnier, a trio from Brussels. Their self-titled EP is dominated by old-school minimal-wave vocals and rigid rhythms: a sound fighting its way out of its own self-repression. The vinyl itself is beautiful: clear blue with a “black smoke” effect inside, plus a PANish printed ...view item »


The Pop Group
The Boy Whose Head Exploded

The Boy Whose Head Exploded is a document of the live sound of The Pop Group at the time of their For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? Peak. Fierce, harshly funky, and scouringly political. As well as the audio (on CD or picture disc), this release also has archival video footage, mostly unreleased. ...view item »


Converge
You Fail Me

Converge reissue a couple of old favourites via the Deathwish Inc. label. Originally released in 2004, You Fail Me is one of the best examples of the legendary band’s cutting metalcore brutality, pushing through twelve tracks in only thirty-five minutes. This vinyl version also includes a bonus track exclusive to ...view item »


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. Running Out Of Red is classically gnarly and full of thick riffs: it literally rocks. Released on John Dwyer’s Castle Face ...view item »


FEWS
Means

This debut release from FEWS borrows the structures and experiments of post-punk, but replaces any brooding seriousness with a playful melodic sensibility. Means, on the Play It Again Sam label, is ten tracks of bold, exuberant and psychedelic guitar music made for both dancing and headphone app...view item »


CTMF
A Song For Kylie Minogue / True

CTMF is yet another group helmed by Billy Childish, the garage rock veteran and super-prolific artist. A Song For Kylie Minogue is taken from their new LP SQ 1, and the B-side True...view item »

Sharon Signs To Cherry Red: Independent Women 1979-1985

A big stack of awesome feminine sonic radicals are gathered up on this compilation, from searing post-punk to dub to rockabilly bands. Sharon Signs To Cherry Red: Independent Women 1979-1985 features a whole wonderful subculture, with tracks from Strawberry Switchblade...view item »


Thee Headcoats
The Messerschmitt Pilot's Severed Hand

Thee Headcoats is just one of many Billy Childish projects, but apparently this album is a particular favourite of his. It does capture his garage-punk spirit pretty effectively, with lo-fi production and snotty tunes like ‘Blood Piss and Sperm’. First put...view item »


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. Their latest work on The Screw is tangled, complex stuff, but also instantly understandable on the instinctive level: you just move ...view item »


AJ Cornell & Tim Darcy
Too Significant To Ignore

Exciting stuff here, as Tim Darcy, the lithe frontman of Ought, teams up with improviser AJ Cornell for a tape of abstract atmospheres and paranoid spoken word. This is the kind of experimentation we’d like to see more indie names getting involved with: it is very interesting to hear ...view item »


Angry Angles
Angry Angles

Here is the complete recorded work of Angry Angles: 17 songs squeezed onto a single CD / record. Angry Angles was Alix Brown and Jay Reatard, who were a couple at the time of recording. Their fast-blast noise-pop is played with a free-and-frenzied sense of abandon, but the songs...view item »


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 »


The Fall
The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall (Expanded Edition)

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! Here we have a deluxe double pack that combines the (relatively) ‘mainstream’ The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall with The Wonderful and Frightening Escape Route of The Fall. Bargainous rei...view item »


Vivien Goldman
Resolutionary (Songs 1979-1982)

When she started making music in 1979, Vivien Goldman pulled together the sounds of punk, hip-hop and reggae, with a touch of afro-beat groove for good measure. Resoloutionary (Songs 1979-1982) compiles her work as a solo artist, in The Flyin...view item »


The Traditional Fools
Fools Gold

The Traditional Fools is an old, mostly defunct band of Ty Segall’s, wherein he played with David Fox and Andrew Luttrell. No-messing lo-fi garage-punk was what it was all about. This set takes their 7” single release and bundles it with 13 never-before-released trac...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. The Black Sunglasses single is limited to 500 7” vinyl copies...view item »


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. Ironically for a single named Instant Hit, neither of these 2 tracks have ever even been released before, let al...view item »


Kitchen's Floor
Battle Of Brisbane

Grinding garage rock 'n' roll from Brisbane malcontents Kitchen's Floor. The guitars seethe, the drums pound, the bass thumps and the vocals express existential terror through a filter of cynicism. For fans of Australian legends like The Saints, Radio Birdman and The Celibate Rifles...view item »


Wire
Send Ultimate

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. Send Ultimate is a remake of their 2003 album Send. I didn't really know what to expect as punk after its heyday has to develop into something new if the band has progressed as ...view item »


Deep Throats
Good Bad Pretty

Deep Throats were an old San Francisco band with a heady garage rock sound. This release gathers up their final recordings, previously unheard by the public at large. Good Bad Pretty is released by Castle Face, the essential garage rock imprint of John O’Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, for...view item »

Wax Witches

CTMF
SQ 1

CTMF is yet another group helmed by Billy Childish, the garage rock veteran and super-prolific artist: this is estimated to be his 150th LP. SQ 1 is another collection of fiercely joyous punk rock delivered with a snarl and a smile. Vinyl LP or CD packed in a sleeve designed by the band: out on Damaged ...view item »


Synthetic ID
Impulses

Synthetic ID are a punk band with a cold, anxious aesthetic: these songs sound like they are constantly looking over their shoulder to check for impending threats. Tight and sharp and excellent. Impulses is released by John O’Dwyer’s (of Thee Oh Sees) essential garage rock i...view item »


B Boys
No Worry No Mind

Coming at you straight out of Brooklyn, NYC, are the trio of B Boys, who play a cool kind of surf-garage punk-rock (surfing in the garage? Does that work?). They might recall fellow New Yorkers Parquet Courts to some ears: they certainly have the energy and the chops for it. No Worry No Mind is out on C...view item »


Useless Eaters
Temporary Mutilation

It’s punk, but not as we know it. This vinyl 10” EP on Slovenly records shows Useless Eaters' one-off mixture of low-slung bass, jagged riffs, xylophone melodies and droning free jazz horns. Temporary Mutilation also embraces electronic elements in its quest to develop a unique sound...view item »


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 »


Mark Wynn
The Singles

Pissed-off wordsmithery from Mark Wynn, labelmate and recent tourmate of Sleaford Mods. The Singles compiles the highlights from a range of hard-to-find self-released CDs, a selection of acoustic frustration with an excellent bleak humour. 500 LP copies with a 20-page booklet of visual materials, on Har...view item »


Virgin Kids
Greasewheel

Virgin Kids are a new band from the gnarly sound-world that brought you Black Lips and Cerebral Ballzy. Which is to say: high-energy, low-fidelity garage-punk. Greasewheel even has a picture of the band eating pizza on the cover! Goes nicely with the snarly, surfy jams this album carrie...view item »


The Replacements

PUNK 45: Chaos In The City Of Angels And Devils - Hollywood From X To Zero & Hardcore On The Beaches: Punk In Los Angeles 1977-81

Another buy-on-sight Soul Jazz compilation. The team have turned their curator’s eye to the explosion of daring, noisy and DIY L.A. hardcore punk music. Between 1977 and 1981 underground punk in Los Angeles thrived, but was ignored by major labels. Not that this stopped any of the groups, including The Flesh Eaters...view item »


Joe Strummer
Gangsterville

Arriving on never seen before artwork, this features four compositions from the former the Clash leader and all round decent bloke. Still seems wrong that he's no longer with us. Anyway this is released in collaboration with his estate. The lead track sound unnervingly like Bruce Springsteen being led down a reggae rabbit hole. 'Only' 4000 ...view item »

Hardcore Matinee

Hardcore Matinee is a throwback to the crucially informative punk rock sampler compilations of the sort that inspired John Reis, later to play in Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. His mission here is to show off the wondrously lively punk scene of San Diego, with 22 groups represented. Go...view item »


Alaric
End of Mirrors

End of Mirrors is a dark and melancholy collection of post-punk from this Oakland band. Alaric have been making an introspective and aggressive punk for eight years now, but this CD and vinyl LP on Neurot is denser, more claustrophobic and more experimental than anything they’ve released b...view item »


Shark Toys / UV-TV
Split

This split single on the Emotional Response label gives you 2 tracks apiece from Florida’s UV-TV (appearing on vinyl for the first time) and LA’s Shark Toys. Bold and loud indie-pop that’ll put a spring in your step. And the coloured vinyl comes with a download code that includes one more song ...view item »


Washer
Here Comes Washer

New York duo Washer make their debut full-length with Here Comes Washer. With only two of them, they are focused on going a long way with a little, meaning that each element of each track is tightly in place and used for as long as it has value. Sharp garage-ish punk that slips from quiet-and-creepy to loud-and-poppy. L...view item »


Slaves
Feed The Mantaray

Just look at them. It's fair to say that Slaves haven't been invented to appeal to ears of my vintage.  An appearance of this single on the Shaun Keaveny show this morning came very close to spoiling my breakfast They make a right old racket of barely listenable rawk with cockney vocals and buzzsaw riffs. Uuurgggh. ...view item »


Primitive Calculators
I’m Fucked / Bad

Primitive Calculators took more-or-less 3 decades off between their early work and their later, Nick Cave-prompted return: now they have some brand new music for us to hear. I’m Fucked / Bad is a pair of strong, Suicide-via-Australia vibed synth-pop, pressed to coloured vinyl by E...view item »


Nikki Sudden
Treasure Island

Nikki Sudden's music always had a Stones vibe to it, but this is about as explicit as I've heard it. If you didn't know what you were listening to, you might believe you had discovered some lost gem from the 70s. No doubt some of this is guest musicians Ian McLagan and Mick Turner. Despite its sound, there's something to it that marks it as more...view item »


John Cooper Clarke
Ou Est Le Maison De Fromage

Oú est la maison de fromage? (‘Where is the house of cheese?’) is the debut album of everyone’s favourite Salford-born ‘punk-poet’, John Cooper Clarke. It’s a 1978-compiled jumble of demos, rehearsals and live recordings, giving a nicely jumbled mixed flavour of the man’s...view item »


The Fall
Bingo Masters at The Witch Trials

Mark E Smith's increasingly loose grip on his back catalogue continues with this vinyl edition of a live gig from 1978. Just look at that sleeve. How in any way does it fit in with the cut and paste collages of the era? It's going to look awful in your collection but at least musically it captures the early Fall at their most intense with a wild...view item »


Bronze
Live In San Francisco

Bronze’s playful electro-drone sounds great in the studio, but live is where their ferocious sound really makes sense. So thankfully Castle Face release Live In San Francisco, where the band’s unhinged blend of drone, primitive electronics and radiophonic pop are truly let loose. Ava...view item »


Big Ups
Before a Million Universes

Before a Million Universes is the second full-length from this noisy NYC three-piece. Big Ups make a razor-sharp post-punk full of hardcore vocals, low-slung bass and ragged guitar playing. Comparisons to Fugazi and Minutemen are deserved, but the band make their own sound from ...view item »


Fir Cone Children
The Age of Blastbeatles

Fir Cone Children are all about writing and performing pop songs through the lens of fuzzed-out garage-goths: kind of as the corpse-paint pop idols on the cover would suggest. The Age Of Blastbeatles is a quick EP squeezed out between albums, with 7 tracks that speed along 2 minutes at a time. On Blackjack Illuminist Re...view item »


TV Smith
Gary Gilmore’s Eyes

Tracks and Traces reissue this anthemic slice of punk from TV Smith and The Adverts. Catchy and terrifically shouty, Gary Gilmore's Eyes is a 1970s punk classic. Henry Rollins named the album this originally appeared on as one of his favourite albums, and i...view item »


Magrudergrind
II

II is a brand new album from Magrudergrind, released after 6 years away. The band seems to have used the intervening time to increase their power and rage, as the powerviolence / grindcore heard here is among their most brutal material to date! Great stuff for those with negative energy to release. On Relapse....view item »


Crash Course In Science
Jump Over Barrels

Crash Course In Science are a post-punk band formed by three art school students in Philadelphia in 1979. Whilst guitars, drums and synths were used, the band eschewed convention by experimenting with toy instruments and kitchen appliances to add to their sound. Jump Over Barrells was recorded in 1981, intended ...view item »


The Underground Youth
Mademoiselle

The Underground Youth are a band for whom demand has always outstripped supply, so don’t hang around on this Fuzz Club release of Mademoiselle! This 2010 record was only ever released online before, so this is the first opportunity to get a physical copy of this particular strain of lo-fi psych-folk. CD and 1000-c...view item »

So-Low

JD Twitch, the maestro behind the Optimo label, has compiled an impressive collection of his favourite cold wave / industrial tracks. So Low has the familiar likes of Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey, but also delves deeper, with some crucial tracks likely to be new to many liste...view item »


The Clash
The Clash

The eponymous debut by The Clash was released in 1977. The songs themes dealt with race, sex, politics and economics. It includes the classic short, sharp shock of White Riot and the band’s sublime cover of Junior Murvin’s Police & Thieves, where the band first showed their regg...view item »


Self Defense Family
Superior

Self Defense Family’s new EP is a dark one. Over 4 tracks, Superior grinds out heavy atmospheres using a slow post-hardcore sound-pallette, apparently dealing with a certain region of Michigan. Patrick Kindlon’s bleak, forsaken-sounding howls set the tone powerfully. 12” EP on nicey ni...view item »


Spider King
Shot To Pieces

Spider King are a little known example of early 1980’s British Northern post-punk being served up with a huge dollop of FUNK! on the side. Those sharp guitars and shouty vocals are all there, but so are broad, squelchy synth basslines. It fits remarkably well. Shot To Pieces, compiled from tracks recorded between ...view item »


This Heat
Health and Efficiency

This Heat remain one of the most unique and remarkable bands in existence, and it is a joy to see their catalogue being reissued on vinyl for the first time! Health & Efficiency is a hell of an EP, combining weird tape-manipulated soundscape ‘Graphic/Varispeed’ with the title track, which seems to accele...view item »


Death Index

John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) continues to sniff out the highest-grade garage-rock / indie-pop for his Castle Face label: for the latest release, we have the debut full-length of LA band Feels. Everything you want from a grrl-fronted garage record, plus production from Ty Segall, wh...view item »


The Machismo's
Share One With A Friend

After an eighteen year hiatus The Machismo's return with the self-released vinyl LP Share One With A Friend. Not only is this a furious record of snotty no-wave, but the band have included two copies of the record in each package. If you love their distorted post-punk, then give the second copy to someone you lo...view item »


The Fat White Family
Songs For Our Mothers

Album number two from Fat White Family, that gang of nihilistic performance upstarts. Songs For Our Mothers promises to be spitting with hatred and negative energy, and probably lots of loud guitars as well. Includes the single Whitest Boy On The Beach. Released on the somewhat dubiously titled Without Consent ...view item »


The Replacements
Let It Be

Let It Be was the third album by Minneapolis post-punk-punk band The Replacements and was originally released in 1984. The band were led by Paul Westerberg. Let It Be is one of the band’s best albums and is arguably the best album called Let It Be that’s ever been released....view item »


GØGGS
She Got Harder

The Replacements
Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash

Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash was the first album by the Paul Westerberg-led band The Replacements and was released in 1981. The album includes the songs Something To Du, a tribute to fellow Minneapolis band, Husker Du and Johnny’s Gonna Die, a song that...view item »


Pop. 1280
Paradise

Pop. 1280 are ostensibly still a punk band, but in practice they spread themselves far beyond the boundaries of that genre. Dark ambient synth-scapes are leered over by Chris Bug’s desolate vocals and some real gnarly noisy guitar. Cello and trumpet ever appear, all contributing to the deliciously bitter a...view item »


Circuit Breaker
My Descent Into Capital

Circuit Breaker make music that brings industrial sonics into the present day. My Descent Into Capital is their fullest statement to date, taking the length of a whole album to hammer into the bleak truths of life under the neoliberal rule of late capitalism… with synths and drum machines! Out on Harbinger Sound....view item »

New York Noise: Dance Music From The New York Underground 1977-1982

Reissue of Soul Jazz’s classic compilation New York Noise: Dance Music From The New York Underground 1977-1982. As the subtitle should signal to you, this is some sharp groovy action, from incredible artists including Theoretical Girls, Dinosaur L and Alan Vega. New tracklist for ...view item »


The You And What Army Faction
Glum

The You And What Army Faction are a post-punk crew from Athens, Greece. The political-economic tensions of contemporary Athens seem to have made their mark on the band, their dark music howling and dead-eyed: they sound wounded, in the best tradition of their heavy post-punk forebears. Glum is out on Smash Records....view item »


Shallow Sanction
Without Light

Release number two from Shallow Sanction, who seem to make a kind of punk rock that is informed by a noise perspective. Indeed, harsh noise creator Cremation Lily turns up to add extra (power) electronics into the mix. Without Light is pretty ferocious, and the 7” is limited to just 250 copies, so...view item »


Teenanger
E P L P

Teenager, the fresh new sound of Toronto. With one foot in the garage and one in the, er, post-punk, Teenager have guitars and sneer in great amounts. Is E P L P an EP or an LP? Who can say!?! (it’s about 25 minutes long, so it’s an EP basically). The vinyl is released by the excellently nam...view item »


The Replacements
Stink

Stink is an EP by The Replacements which was released in 1982 in-between their first two albums. It is full of punk-ish ditties, mainly written by frontman Paul Westerberg, with punk-ish titles such as Fuck School and God Damn Job. At the start of the EP there is audio footage ...view item »


Johnny Thunders
Critics’ Choice / So Alone

Critics Choice may well be the last recording Johnny Thunders made before his death. It was recorded in 1991 with The Chesterfield Kings as his backing band. This 10” also features So Alone, an early version of the Thunders classic which could be his first ever recording.This enigmatic re...view item »


The Black Tambourines
Freedom

The Black Tambourines are another iteration of the lo-fi, DIY, garage-punk band: which, to be fair is always a band worth seeing. Freedom is their second full-length, and finds the group well-honed but certainly not cleaned-up: all the guitars (and even most of the vocals) remain plenty distorted. Freedom is re...view item »


Cereal Killer
No Life 'Til Cereal

Cereal Killer were too busy furiously slamming down tracks in the recording studio to think of a proper name for their band: or maybe their moniker gives a good sense of the care-free attitude evident in these four thrashing speed-punk track. No Life Till Cereal is limited to 250 7” copies on Agitated / Anti-Fade....view item »

Running
Wake Up Applauding

Running play a kind of garage repeato-rock (of course they do, they are on John Dwyer’s Castle Face! The spiritual home of all such musics), but they might be the most overcranked-sounding garage band I’ve heard in some time. Wake Up Applauding is thick with distortion and reverb, with a for...view item »


Future Punx
This Is Post Wave

The members of Future Punx have all played in punk bands of every stripe, and are now squeezing that punk experience into a rather retro conception of the future. Synth-pop basically.

Flowers of Evil
Flowers of Evil

Flowers of Evil are a proper punk band, and we know this because this self-titled debut full-length is only 20 minutes long. Real punks don’t hang around. Also, they have plenty of snarling vocal drawl, basic, hammered-out rhythms, and distorted guitars to show off. LP released by Deranged Records....view item »
