As the recent New Shit continues to fly off the shelves and get restocked on a daily basis (I grab handfuls of new releases, take them off the shelf and put them back the next day. Im trying to trick myself into thinking that someones actually buying them!), we add another 5 singles and a shitload of used cds that you can view at Discogs. Dont buy them there though, get them here and save at least 50 cents or a dollar on everything.
(Feb 27 2014) 3 new sevens and a ten inch available now. We Are The Mods!
(Feb 7, 2014) 5 new singles and 2 new lp's listed below-Killers All!
(Jan 17, 2014) I'm not usually a fan of novelty/goof records, but the Pukes are really cool! Check out the video for their Cock Sparrer cover.
(Jan 12, 2014) Another batch of Killer KBD type reissues. All Canadian Classics!
(Jan 2, 2014) Its a new year and were well over due for an update. So here ya go! More reissue type 7s coming shortly...
(Nov 19, 2013) Three Excellent 7ers available now! MOTO and The Kidnappers on the great new label Secret Mission Records and Visio , a long lost unreleased KBD gem from Finland.
(Nov 6, 2013) Well this update was a long time coming. What we lack in quantity is more than made up for in quality. New releases from The Riots, Lovesores, Wild Emotions, Ramma Lamma and a new lp from Miss Chain and The Broken Heels!>
(Oct 5, 2013) Not a lot to report except to let you know the JunK 7 is sold out!
New Shit in from Ken Rock, Certified PR and dont forget to scroll down for Dime Runners great lp on Black Vinyl Ltd.
The Stitches/The Gaggers 7" on colored vinyl is sold out!
Check out the new Rapid Pulse releases and a few old ones Here. The Crazy Squeeze white vinyl is sold out...
(8/28/13) Available Now! Three new Rapid Pulse titles: The Crazy Squeeze, The Junk, and a split from The Stitches and The Gaggers. Greg Lonesome from the Rock & Roll Manifesto says this is the best Stitches track since 8x12. Who am I to argue? The Gaggers back it up with what is pretty much their theme song. The JunKs third single is a complete Monster! Its their first release with new singer Riky Barnes, formally of The Pushers. This brings us to latest from The Crazy Squeeze. One track is from their recent lp and the flip is an amazing cover of The Boys classic Terminal Love! Get all three regular versions at the bargain price of $18 ppd in the U.S. Buy them individually and pay through the nose!
We finally joined Facebook. Stop by and like it so the numbers not quite so embarrassing. It will be easier to update that page as soon as new shit arrives and post record covers etc. Does anyone care about Twitter? If you do, you can follow at @umedjim and maybe I'll start posting new arrivals and whatever other crap. If theres not much interest, I wont bother...
Remember, new records are added weekly, as we get them, not in a single update like the old days...
NEW SHIT! : seven inches
Kids and Neighbors/In The Basement (Modernist) The last time we had a single from Japans Gimmies was 13 years ago. Its nice to see nothing has changed! Maybe the new/old Teengenerate lp is kick starting a revival of Japanese garage trash. It works for me!
4.50 No Tomorrow Boys
Teen-Age Vice/I Go Ape + Other Girls (Elis Mile High) NTBs elusive 3rd 7 (elusive for me anyway). Of course, it's a total killer featuring their rippin&@146; Neil Sedaka cover! Grab your switchblade and check out their super cool video for the title track
5.00 Shattered Faith
Power To The Kids + 2 (Hostage) It's hard to imagine a band putting out their 2nd single almost 35 years after their first could manage anything this great. But God Damn theyve done it! Red vinyl with typical awesome Hostage packaging. Power to the grand kids!
3 x 7 (Vinyl Dog) Ok, here it is, a set of the 3 greatest singles put out by any band ever! Well, maybe I exaggerate -a little. Their 1st 3 singles reissued in a nifty packet of three. Any reference to Squeeze is intended, though not Crazy.
NEW SHIT! : Other
5.00 Botox Rats - LP
Modern Ceasers (Meaty Beaty) Straight up 77 style punk killers from England. The Botox Rats feature one of the snottiest, bile spitting singers ever. Pre-The Gaggers! Colored vinyl + a digital download, Yeah!
10.50 Crazy Squeeze - LP
S/T (Vinyl Dog) It's finally out, the debut lp from The Crazy Squeeze! 12 great tracks that span tough Pub-Rock to near powerpop with punk and glam in between. All with an underlying love of The Boys.
11.50 Curtains! - LP
Deep In Night City (Dead Beat) Maybe its because I rarely listen to this kinda stuff that it sounds so cool or maybe its just a great record. From Chicago, they create some serious Birthday Party, Chrome, Bauhaus type sounds. Colored vinyl
12.50 Fadeaways - LP
Raw, Wild & Wretched! (Dead Beat) From Tokyo, The Fadeaways blast out 10 tracks of snotty garage punk! Supercharger and the Mummies meet the Registrators and Teengenerate, but not lofi.
11.50 Gestapo Khazi - LP
S/T (Dead Beat) Mid-tempo rockers from Long Beach, CA with some dark twang. Most reviews I see mention the Gun Club and its hard to deny that, though theyre certainly not copyists. 6-songs 45 rpms.
12.50 Moralens Väktare - LP
S/T (Dead Beat) Killer Punk Rock from Stockholm, Sweden! 12 tracks of 77 meets Bloodstains meets Right Now! Probably my favorite release since the Sharp Objects lp. Includes covers of the Hot Rods and Dolls sung in Swedish.
16.00 RAF - LP
Come On! (Time For Action) Debut 10 from the Portland Mod Revival revival band. Killer stuff on the punk side of mod. If youre into bands like The Chords, The Purple Hearts, The Jolt, The Circles and modernists like The Riots, these guys are for you! And me... Check out their very cool video
15.00 V/A Ruling The World From The Backseat - LP
A Tribute To Unnatural Axe (Lawless) 27 artists worldwide covering the beer-guzzling, foot-stomping, fist-pumping, ear splitting, brain tumor-dislodging punk classics of Unnatural Axe. Includes The Neighborhoods, Mission of Burma, The Sleazies, Classic Ruins, Dogmatics, The Queers, UFO Dictatorz, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Nasties, Rev. Norb, and lots more. A double album on two different vinyl colors, full-color cover and insert (which look awesome), and a card for a free download of the whole thing. All that and its only 500 numbered copies.

12.00 V/A Shake! It Up Vol. 1 - LP
(Shake!) Canada Great comp of bands mostly from western Canada: The Jolts, Greenback High, Durban Poison, Headons, Mascara Nites, The Frostbacks, Shitty Neighbours, The Poor Choices, Electric Empress, and New Tricks. Awesome packaging and limited coloured vinyl. Plus it spins at 45 which makes me happy.
11.50 Vomit Squad - LP
Amon Ra Bless America (Psychic Handshake) Canada KBD/Angry Samoans/Gizmos all come to mind at first listen to this excellent 6-song 12. Straight ahead punk rock from King Kahn, Choyce, and others from the Spaceshits, Daylight Lovers, Sexareenos, Red Mass etc. etc. crew. Marble dark purple vinyl with lyric sheet insert.
