Swami Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
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, who also produced the album.

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. Good fun punk times on Reis’ Swami label.

Sonny Vincent and Rocket From The Crypt
An exciting collaboration between Sonny Vincent and Rocket From The Crypt, the Vintage Piss tapes were recorded in 2003, but have lain undiscovered and incomplete for over a decade… Until now! Dusted off and restored, this pissy slab of jammed-out punk ferocity is now available for the first time. Woo!
Reverb and beach sand go hand in hand, and Swami John Reis and the Blind are here to assure you that it's a winning combo. This surf record, rather proudly and unassumingly titled Modern Surf Classics, is made out of all the usual fret-frenetic riffs, but is covered over with saxophone freakouts and tight percussion. The Beach Boys have nothing.
