The Dum Dum Boys
Let There Be Noise

Reissue for The Dum Dum Boys’ 1981 debut LP Let There Be Noise here. An important release in the story of New Zealand’s punk scene - some say Let There Be Noise is the first Kiwi punk record - this album is full of bratty riffage and young man fury. Iggy Pop, Ramones and a bit of Black Flag are all clear influences.

Skull Practitioners
Death Buy EP

Head Skull Practitioner Jason Victor has been more recently known as guitarist in Steve Wynn's reconstituted the Dream Syndicate.  His other band are a more fractured proposition creating propulsive semi improvised skronk which has drawn comparisons to the Gun Club. They are not exactly prolific  - just one hard to find tape so far - but now that In the Red have picked them up I'm sure we'll hear a lot more of them in years to come. We start here with this four song 12".

CFM
Soundtrack To An Empty Room

Charles Moothart, multi-instrumentalist and a sometime collaborator with Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin, revives his CFM moniker for a third studio album. Harder-edged than before, Soundtrack To An Empty Room shows an artist who’s just as at ease creating by himself as he is in collaboration with others. 

Ty Segall Band
Slaughterhouse

He’d been operating as a solo artist for about four years at this point, but 2012 saw the first album from the Ty Segall Band, in which our eponymous hero teamed up with Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moonheart and Emily Rose Epstein. Slaughterhouse is presented on 2x12” LPs, as opposed to the original issue which was two 10” discs. 

The Scientists
9H2O.SiO2

Brand new 12” EP of five original tracks from hugely influential Australian post-punk band The Scientists, who are about to embark on another U.S. tour following the success of last year’s reformation. The group are one of the most highly regarded ‘cult’ acts ever, originating in the post-punk era of the early Eighties and influencing the likes of Sonic Youth and Nirvana.

LTD
Stop Und Fick Dich!

Something of a cult hero for decades now, King Khan has assembled a supergroup of veteran garage-rock mainstays for new project LTD (Louder Than Death) - Looch Vibrato and Aggy Sonora (Magnetix) on guitar and drums, and Shrines’ Fredovitch on bass. Stop Und Fick Dich! is an orgiastic and highly enjoyable mess. 

Wolfmanhattan Project
Blue Gene Stew

The Wolfmanhattan Project is a nice little noise-rocky effort. After releasing a first single in 2015, the band’s finally pulled themselves together for their debut album Blue Gene Stew. I guess it must be difficult to find time to record if your members are also playing with Sonic Youth, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Gories.

The C.I.A.
The C.I.A.

The 1,436,893th record that Ty Segall has had a hand in this year drops on In The Red (Chain And The Gang, Kid Congo And The Pink Monkey Birds). The C.I.A.'s eponymous record (try Googling it) finds Segall joined by his wife Denee and The Cairo Gang’s Emmett Kelly for an album that is part-Velvet Underground garage meditation, part-Suicide-style electro-punk and part-post-Crass abandon.

Jon Spencer
Spencer Sings The Hits

Jon... what did you do Jon? What did you do? What did you do to them? Where are they Jon? Jon! Where are the Blues Explosion?!  Despite my suspicions, it is my job to inform you Jon Spencer is back, and this time, he's singing the hits. On it the New York's garage rock legend offers his heart in exchange for us forgetting he ever had a Blues Explosion.

Ty Segall
Fudge Sandwich

The press release for Ty Segall’s 6,984,431st record ensures us that the eleven tracks that make up Fudge Sandwich ‘aren’t just cover versions’. That will be quite the disappointment for anyone who’s come to this LP to hear how Segall gets on with tunes from the likes of Funkadelic and The Grateful Dead. It’s also a lie - these are very much songs not written by Ty Segall, now in the style of Ty Segall.

The Scientists
Braindead (Resuscitated) / SurvivalsKills

Los Angeles label In The Red (Ex-Cult, Wand) host the return of The Scientists. The Aussie swamp-punks have been pretty inactive since the 1980's, with only a handful of recordings emerging in the intervening years, but they seem to have got the bit between their teeth again. Here they re-record 1987’s ‘Braindead (Resuscitated)’ - a fitting choice for a comeback single - and back it with new song ‘Survivalskills’.

Warm Drag
Warm Drag

Given that he’s recently left !!! for The Most Prolific Band In The Universe™ Thee Oh Sees (or OCS, or whatever the hell they’re called now), you’d think that Paul Quattrone would have neither time nor inclination for further music-making. You’d be wrong. Quattrone is the electronics half of Warm Drag, a group completed by Debbie Harry-ish singer Vashti Windish. On their eponymous debut LP they make a racket that sounds like the DAF trying to be Ennio Morricone. Unfortunately Warm Drag don’t appear to be any relation to the much-missed Giant Drag.

GØGGS
Pre Strike Sweep

Pre Strike Sweep is nothing to do with Giggs and very much to do with Ty Segall. The uncouthly prolific fuzz-rocker plays back-up in GØGGS, noodling away on his axe while Ex-Cult bloke Chris Shaw deals with the yipping and yelping. Tunes like the title track do a good job of melding Ex-Cult’s hardcore thrash with Segall’s brand of psych-y garage-rock.

Earth Girl Helen Brown
Four Satellites Vol. 1

Four Satellites comprises of selected tracks from Earth Girl Helen Brown’s four EPs released through Empty Cellar Records through 2017 and 2018, each one named and themed by the planets Mars, Saturn, Venus and mercury. The ludicrous lineup of collaborators for this project includes Bart Davenport, Ty Segall, Tim Cohen and many others.

Arndales
Shops

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

LTD
LTD

Canadian garage legend King Khan and Michigan punk Sean Wood (The Spits) have formed what has proved to be a mind-blowing double act, Louder Than Death, LTD for short. Inspired by sci-fi, the duo cook up some pretty classic sounding dumb-ass punk rock. There’s an album out later in the year for which they’ve augmented their line-up with Aggy and Looch from Russian psychobilly band The Magnetix. 12” EP on In The Red.

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.
  • Label(s):
  • In The Red

The Double
Dawn Of The Double

The Double (a duo featuring Emmett Kelly of Cairo Gang and Jim White of Dirty Three!) have identified Dawn Of The Double as a kind of twist to Rhys Chatham’s noisy minimal classic ‘Guitar Trio’: guitar and drums perpetually accelerating into amplified bliss. Except here, you can (and should) dance to it as well as lose your mind. LP on In The Red

Lars Finberg
Moonlight Over Bakersfield

Lars Finsberg is a great guy who’s been in great bands, from Thee Oh Sees and Puberty to Wounded Lion and A-Frames. He also has his own thing going on though, as we see on Moonlight Over Bakersfield, which is a rad motorik-psych-punk adventure with back-up from those heavyweights Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin. On In The Red.
  • Label(s):
  • In The Red

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.

Side Eyes
So Sick

This band is something that we'll probably start to see a lot more of in the future. Bands formed out of the offspring of former heroes. Singer Astrid MacDonald is the offspring of members of Redd Kross and the Go Go's which makes you wonder whether the driving pop punk she makes with her band is somehow a result of DNA. 
  • Label(s):
  • In The Red

Chain & The Gang
Best of Crime Rock

Comparisons to across the landscape of garage indie will be made, but the fact is that Chain & The Gang have developed their very own technique. The Best of Crime Rock could showcase their stripped down fusion no better; satire, simplicity and consistently accurate. 

CFM
Dichotomy Desaturated

CFM is the solo rockin’ out project of Charles Moothart, an associate of both Mikal Cronin and Ty Segall, putting him right in the middle of a whirlwind of garage-psych quality. Dichotomy Desaturated is his second solo album, and it sounds like the realisation of a stack of guitar fantasies. Good guitar fun on In The Red.

feedtime
Gas

Australian noise rock trio feedtime formed in 1979, disbanded in 1989, came back for a brief time for their last album in 1996 and now return once again with a brand new fukl length through In The Red. 38 years on and they are still rough around the edges, dirty, gritty and above all...noisy. Drunken noise rock, offset with Laibach esque vocal grunts.

Power
Electric Glitter Boogie

The straightforwardly-named Power take their influence entirely from Australia’s history of greasy pub hard rock: music to drink beer and flail around to. Electric Glitter Boogie delivers on both its title and its history, being a straight-down-the-line guitar thrash recorded raw and direct for maximum impact. Released by In The Red.

Meatbodies
Meatbodies

The unholy din you're hearing on "Tremmors" is made by Meatbodies, a band with a full-bodied psych rock sound that matches their name for velocity and volume. Sounding at times like an amped up Merchandise who want you to hear every bit of them, they've made this self-titled record of screeching guitars, isolated vocal harmonies and garage rock guitar interchanges. They are of course well loved by Ty Segall for making noise you can grasp and dance around to.

BBQ
BBQ

He of King Kahn and _ _ _ Show fame, the man born Mark Sultan lobs another dozen hunks of fuzzy psych out into the world. Never a great one for “the crap”, he’s sought to “cut it” (the crap, that is) even more on this record. Most of the tracks were done in one take and the album thus bristles with an off-the-cuff energy that is thrilling even by his high standards of thrillingdom.

CFM
Homegrown Paranoia

CFM is Charles Francis Moothart, and CFM is a fire-spitting garage-psych band project with a new 7” out now. Homegrown Paranoia’s three tracks feel like they are perpetually accelerating, but the band still holds their tunes together under the carpet of tasty fuzz that covers the sound. A blasted-up good time record on In The Red.

Meatbodies
Alice

Meatbodies describe themselves as ‘Heavy Pop’, a concept that they actually pretty much live up to: louder and more metally than most indie pop, but a lot more melodic and actively ‘fun’ than most metal and hardcore. Alice, which is released by the In The Red label, is a good time ride through a concept story of some sorts. CD and LP editions.

The Intended
Time Will Tell

Kevin Boyer and Larry Williams of Tyvek joined with Glen Morren (Night Movie) and Heath Moerland (runs experimental noise label Fag Tapes and is in too many projects to count), to bash about making noisy/punky surfer garage rock. Only a few 8-track recordings existed before this debut full length. Don;t expect this to be a polished affair - just a group playing loudly around a microphone in the middle of a room.

Tyvek
Origin Of What

Building upon their brooding grizzly tank of fuzzy punk, is Origin Of What - the latest continuation of Tyvek's ruthlessly rough' n 'ready wall of noise. Teaming up once again with Fred Thomas, band members new and old create a thrashing record set to please old and new fans alike.

  • In The Red

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.
  • Label(s):
  • In The Red

Ex-Cult
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?

  • In The Red

Danny & The Darleans
Bug Out

Danny & the Darleans is the project of The Gories singer/guitarist Danny Kroha. Their sound focuses on Kroha's renowned howls and mastered guitar skills, with their second LP negating the glam aspects of Kroha's other band the Demolition Doll Rods, presenting a more refined version of the ferociousness of the Gories. Still lighthearted and fun, 'Bug Out' is the perfect party band album. 

CCR Headcleaner
Tear Down The Wall

CCR Headcleaner play the kind of psychedelic music that seems to have just about crossed over into genuinely demented territory: this shit sounds fucked up. Tear Down The Wall, which comes complete with some highly-spirited sleeve art, is their third album proper, thrown aggressively out into the world by In The Red.

Sleeping Beauties
Sleeping Beauties

If you’re expecting a babble of beautiful girls then the slouching, hairy blokes which make up Sleeping Beauties may leave you disappointed. The music on their eponymous LP however, is sure to please with its full on rock, primal guitar and slight psychedelia, think 13th Floor Elevators meets a bit of punk.   

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. That information coupled with the fact that this appears on In the Red suggests that this is lively punky garage with the most fuzzed out guitars you ever heard.  

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 tracks, including covers of Love and The Damned: very nice. Fools Gold is out on In The Red.

CFM
Still Life of Citrus & Slime

The initials CFM stand for Charles Francis Moothart, a veteran of bands including The Moonhearts, The Epsilons and The Ty Segall band. But this is the first time his considerable skills (for instance, he played different instruments in all those bands) have been deployed solo. Still Life of Citrus & Slime is a very personal set of garage-rock / indie-pop from someone who knows the sound inside out. On In The Red.

GØGGS
She Got Harder

GØGGS is yet another project involving that busy boy Ty Segall, this time working with Chris Shaw (and with some extra help from Mikal Cronin, needless to say). Debut single She Got Harder previews next year’s full-length with a gnarly, drum-machine-powered fuzz-rocket. The 7” is backed with an Iggy Pop cover, exclusive to this release. On In The Red.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Human Obscene / Shake That Bat

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion continue their series of jukebox singles: yes indeed, 45’ speed 7” records with an extra-large centre-hole so that you can actually load it into any jukeboxes you might happen to own. Human Obscene / Shake That Bat is a particularly gnarly pair of fuzzy rock-out tracks, both exclusive to this release on In The Red.

Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds
Bruce Juice / El Cucuy

Kid Congo and his faithful band The Pink Monkey Birds are always worthy of your attention, and a new full-length due next year is something to get excited about. Help that excitement along with this new single, two exclusive tracks that won’t be on the album. Bruce Juice / El Cucuy is a radical rock ride indeed. 7” on In The Red.
  • Label(s):
  • In The Red

Wolfmanhattan Project
Smells Like You / You Are My Glue

The Wolfmanhattan Project are a merry band of old-time fuzz-punk rockers, newly formed from Bob Bert, Mick Collins and the legendary Kid Congo. Smells Like You / You Are My Glue is their first ever release, and has a fantastic tone to it, the three of them swagger-thrashing their way through the tracks. 7” on In The Red.

Fuzz
II

Ty Segall’s proto-metal trio, Fuzz are back with their second album aptly named, Fuzz II. The band are in a musical time warp, ostensibly existing somewhere between 1968 and 1973, a time when guitars were fuzzy, and everything was real heavy. Their eponymous debut was a cracking homage to the rock sub-genre, Fuzz II sounds like it’s going to be just as good.

The Intelligence
Boredom and Terror / Let's Toil

These lo-fi indie rockers look like they've just stepped out of a Wes Andersen set; in actuality, though, Back in 2004, the Intelligence made this record of lo-fi indie pop that spits itself out the way Robert Pollard spews nonsense for Guided by Voices. 'Boredom and Terror' is full of thrown off vocals, momentary lapses in guitar riffage and rock steady drum beats played way too loud in the mix. The result is throwback indie rock to the days when you just started playing and hoped a song came out at the end -- on 'Boredom and Terror', they usually get lucky, making irresistible garage rock tunes that recall 90s indie rock and Devo in equal measure, as well as the newer guitar rock ripping of Tony Molina.

The King Khan & BBQ Show
Bad News Boys

A five year break doesn’t seem to have done The King Khan & BBQ Show any harm. A cracking mix of doo-wop, rock 'n' roll, punk and soul, high energy and fast paced. The duo, King Khan and Mark Sultan, started out as the Bad News Boys and that’s the title of the album. Always smiling, middle fingers aloft. CD and vinyl from In The Red.
