SEVEN INCHES / 45's / SINGLES
* = Colored Vinyl
6.00 Actual Water
Shes a Priest/Latoya (Plastic Idol) Another project of Ben Cook/Young Governor. He co-wrote and produced both songs. Not surprisingly it's infectious slightly noisey pop. 330 copies only.
5.50 Alice Bag
Violence Girl (Artifix) BACK IN STOCK!!! Awesome record and sleeve with 5 different Alice Bag projects: The Bags, Castration Squad, Stay At Home Bomb, Goddess 13, and Cholita. Excellent companion piece to her Autobiography Violence Girl. Red vinyl
I Play The Fool/Water Death (Certified PR) Maybe some of you were disappointed with the Alicja-Pop debut, not expecting the lilting pop of that record. Fear not, this is much more rockin. No Lost Sounds type screams, but completely brilliant nonetheless. I Play The Fool.
Shining Apple/Walking The Cow (Certified PR) Dont look for the fierce Alicja here. A-side is atmospheric synth-pop perhaps somewhat similar to Mazzy Star or Lush. B-side is keyboard driven again, but this time more upbeat pop on this Daniel Johnston cover (Ive never heard the original, but I cant imagine its anywhere near as good as this). This woman can do no wrong. Numbered edition of 400 copies.
5.00 Astryd Lindgrens Great 5
ALGR5 ep (Ken Rock) Sweden BACK IN STOCK! -but very few. KBD style punk from Sweden. Includes ex-members of the Idyls. 5-tracks including a cover of Freestones Bummer Bitch. 225 black vinyl copies only.
5.00 Bad Brains
171 A Sessions (Cleopatra Cafe) Early Bad Brains were one of the most amazing bands ever and this is a lost session from 1981 finally unearthed in good quality. The 3 songs are: Black Dots, Send You No Flowers and Redbone In The City. Added is a live reggae track, Recognise, from 1985. 500 copies two different color sleeves.
6.50 Billy Childish-Musicians of the British Empire
There Is Only Me/All Thats Spoken is Unkind (Squoodge) Austria Wild Billy with the MBEs on the A-side and Chatham Singers on the flip. Blue vinyl 177 copies. A-side B-side
3.00 Black Sunday
I Dont Wanna Work/Romantic Me (Zaxxon Virile Action) Canada This is from a few years back, but we never had it before. Alicja and friends cover The Queers and Polyrock. Great stuff.
5.00 Bloody Hammer
Apathy Is Bliss (Cutthroat) Back In Stock! Houston, TX one-man band. Hard punk and hardcore from a member of the Hell City Kings, Secret Prostitutes, No Talk... 11 tracks in 10 minutes, colored vinyl, 250 copies.
6.50 Bold Chicken
A Fellows Lament/Street Walkin Queen + 2 (Lysergic Sound Distributors) Recorded in 1972/73, this is Buzz Clic pre-Rubber City Rebels. Very primitive, yet excellent proto-punk. Much along the same lines as the Gizmos. These tracks a rawer than the ones youll find on myspace (click the band name). Numbered edition of 350 copies in a jacket style sleeve.
Stupid Question/Ancient Times (Boppa Do Down) No, The Bon is not an AC/DC cover band. They are however, EXCELLENT Garage RocknRoll from Toronto! Ex-Leather Uppers, Speed Kings, Tijuana Bibles...
4.25 Born Liars
Don't Tell Me, I Know/I Don't Know Why (Ditchwater) PunknRoll from Houston, TX. The b-side is a most gritty version of a Stevie Wonder song-sadly its not Boogie On Reggae Woman First release for this label-cool b&w sleeve, numbered edition of 300, insert.
5.50 Brandy Row
The Final Stand/Too Much Aint Enough (No Front Teeth) England I dont have much reference for accoustic guitar and vocal records, except for Johnny Thunders and Jeff Dahl. I like their stuff and I like this too. The major differance here is the Brit accent. This is a side project for a member of the Gaggers, Hateful, the Blowouts and probably more...
Disco Kiddz (Douchemaster) Back In Stock!! It's two years old now, but not too late to jump on board! A bit of glampop, a bit of postpunk make for an excellent 3 song debut from this Oakland, CA band. Includes Andy Jordan of The Cuts and The Time Flys
5.50 Channel 3
Land of the Free/Make It Home ++++ (Hostage) Hostage Records does it again with the return of the legendary CH3! A 2-song 7 with a bonus 7/8-song California Drivers License/Download. Everthing you could want from CH3: Punk rippers, singalong choruses and the return of Maria Montoya (You Make Me Feel Cheap) on an awesome Sonny & Cher cover! These could be the last copies youll find as the label is sold out!
6.00 Co´tus Int.
dead Excitement E.P. (Bunkerpop) Dutch post-punk from Utrecht. This is their 1980 ep reissued. Really nice package with several inserts-lyrics, photos, etc. On the Joy Division or Bauhaus side of things, but even more menacing.
*No Action (Modern Action) BACK IN STOCK!!! Single #4 from the Complaints* and it's another killer! S.F. garage PunknRoll. This is a 6-song, 33 rpm 7. No Action is not a Elvis Costello cover, but Cranked Up Really High is Slaughter & The Dogs. On Modern Action, so you know it will be gone sooner than later...
*Secrets (Meaty Beaty) Like everything else on this label, its excellent punknroll! Includes members of the Radio Reelers, Swingin Utters, Lowdowns, others Im sure... 4-songs, Grey vinyl/jacket style sleeve.
*Wanna Be Bored (Complaints* Records & Tapes) 4-song debut from 2009. Punk RocknRoll outta San Francisco featuring two Radio Reelers, a Swingin Utter/Working Stiff, and a Dead Ringer. Thats way more than you need to know. Its simple, this rocks! Grey vinyl
5.00 Crisis Hotlines
A.R.T.I.F.I.C.I.A.L. + 3 (Ken Rock) Sweden Nothing against todays noise merchants, but I love it when I hear a band that I cant label as anything other than Punk Rock. Following a long tradition of great Austin bands come the debut from Crisis Hotline. High Energy, Fast, Melodic, & Mean.
No Other/Straight Down (Hostage) One of the first and best of the Southern California punk scene is back with 2 new tracks on one of the best labels ever, Hostage Records. This is the 2nd pressing on blue vinyl. The first press sold out in one day-record store day. This also includes a download card for 15 rare, odds and ends. What a frickin deal! Continuing their record of doing everything better than everyone else, this isn't a typical piece of paper download card or even a business type card. No, Hostage does it credit card style with really cool artwork or it. Surf & Destroy!
4.00 Dagger Dicks
Sharp For You/Razor Sharp Love (Meaty Beaty) I couldnt find a myspace page for them, but for some strange reason they sound almost exactly like The Gaggers, Botox Rats, Shanghai Wires, & Disco Lepers-only with a slight bit of powerpop injected. I do mean slight. Killer Snotty Punk Rock! Lime green vinyl with insert in a very cool jacket style sleeve.
5.50 Druid Perfume
Dont Eat em Theyre Poison/Honk Your Horn (X!) Remember the Piranhas from Detroit. They were basically the band that started the whole take inspiration from the Electric Eels and those type of bands and take it to the next level of garage noise destruction. Long forgotten pioneers-Theyre to blame! Or celebrate depending on your point of view. Anyway, two of them are back here and no, youre not getting any pop songs. A full body assault! Unusual, yet pretty cool sleeve art.
4.50 Durban Poison
Wanna Hear About Dancin/Time Warp (Shake!) Canada BACK IN STOCK! Good tough PunknRoll from Victoria, BC. This is a 7 from 2010. Beautiful sleeve and blue vinyl. Time Warp is a cover of the famous Riff Raff.
6.00 Friends Of Dorothy
No Sex On Paul Fashion Street (Ken Rock) Sweden The new band from the leader singer of Henry Fiats Open Sore. To quote the great Mr. Ken Rock "Paul fashion the singer sing the way he do and kenrock love it and so do you". Not as insane as HFOS, its more melodic, but still aggressive. 4-songs, 300 copies only!!
