    BIPOLAR BEAR

    Manbase

    [engl] Limited edition released of 350 handnumbered copies with two-color silkscreened sleeves! This EP contains 4 new and exclusive tracks with super-blasting sound, being in the vein of the INTELLIGENCE and CRASH NORMAL, with nods to the A FRAMES, like a more fuzzy rocking version of the MAE SHI, like a buzzsaw crazed-up version of MONORCHID, and also reminiscent of sadly forgotten 90's classics like HARRIET THE SPY...

    BUCK GOOTER

    Witch Molecules

    [engl] Primal Industrial Blues, nihilist Punk, minimalist Noise-Rock. Recorded by Don Zientara at Inner Ear Studio, DC. Cover-artwork by Asa Osbourne (LUNGFISH, ZOMES). LP-vinyl, glossy full-color cover, insert with lyrics. Full album by this furious duo from Harrisonsburg, Virginia. And it is another challenging masterpiece! Minimal and nightmarish sounds, mixed up with alienated references of blues and rock patterns. Rough and nihilistic, sick sounds for the very few who did not become mad of this world. Think of Sam McPheeters meeting Killdozer after a Wolf Eyes concert. Or Black Flag meets Merzbow. Chrome meets Flipper. Black Humor meets Young Gods. Cramps meet Shorty. Dan Melchior meets Savage Republic. Urinals meet Throbbing Gristle. Arab on Radar meet Abner Jay. No Trend meet Ty Segall? Who knows. Or just citing MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL: You haven't heard anything that sounds like BUCK GOOTER in a long time! Whatever. It is nothing less than outstanding contemporary music.

    BUGS

    Double O-Yeah...And Other Hits

    [engl] Double O-Yeah, that's it! Now in stock! 6 lo-fi, trashy pop hits, with enough hooks to make it one of the finest summer jams. Double O-Yeah! You'll get a unique approach to songwriting that will leave you as stunned as you were from their first record way back when. Following their brilliant LPs, both released on HOVER CRAFT, more Urinals-inspired instant hits by one of our favorite bands! Cover pays tribute to the legendary Sexual Milkshake. Limited to 350 hand-numbered and hand-stamped copies, with free mp3-download.

    ENIAC

    Oh?

    Nach ihrer Single ist dies bereits die zweite volle LP der Jungs aus Hamburg, die hier zur absoluten Hochform auflaufen. Durchdachte Songs mit treibenden Beats, Breaks an der richtigen Stelle, enregiegeladenen Noisegitarren, einer vertrackt nach vorne schiessenden Rythmussektion und einem Saenger, der sich den musikalischen Stimmungen anpassen kann, und da von provokant angepisst bis zum monoton wahnsinnigen Sprechgesang alles drauf hat. Vergleiche mit KURT, LES SAVY FAV oder JESUS LIZARD kommen nicht von ungefaehr. Zwei Songs sind auf deutsch, 5 auf englisch und eines ist ein elektronisches Instrumental. Waehrend Songs wie ''We did things'' oder ''Kolportage'' eher flott und eingaengig sind, schliesst man das Album sehr ungewoehnlich mit dem noisig schleppenden ''Solitary head'' ab. Anbiederung nicht notwendig. Die Band ist auch so gut. Kommt schoen eingepackt mit festem, rosa/gelbem Einleger.

Following up to the split-7'' with HOLY MOLAR, lately released on the californian label THREE ONE G, the 6 tracks here are totally extreme, full-on blasting Noise-Punk madness, like taking the sound of their previous album Zoo Psychology to new heigths and limits! With a full playing- time of 27 minutes!

    FUCKUISMYNAME

    Dying to meet you

    [engl] Debut by new german band (from Trier and Cologne) with 4 songs that sound like... well, maybe like LES SAVY FAV as on their 7"s, and with an organ added? Or like the PANTHERS, but less noisey and more melodic? Something like this - but whatever, definitely as cool as the band-name (and we think the name is pretty cool!). Features ex-members of the OLIVER TWIST, PHILLIPPE and MARV & THE ALABAMA MURDER.

    HAPPY EVER AFTER

    s/t

    [engl] Limited edition of 150 handnumbered copies with two-color screenprinted sleeves! Features all the recorded material by this short-living but truly amazing band. Both tracks from their 7"single, the song from the split-7" with 2BAD, the song from the "X-PRESS" compilation LP, all released during 1989/1990 – and as a special bonus, one previously unreleased track! Insert with linernotes and photos included. So who was this band anyway? It was Andy (drums) and Armin (bass), formerly in SKEEZICKS, Ute (guitar) formerly in APES OF WRATH, and Jason Honea, former singer with SOCIAL UNREST, staying for a while in Germany after their European tour. But their sound was completely different to any of those bands. Maybe and mostly influenced at that time by SONIC YOUTH, STEEL POLE BATHTUB, and the GERMS... They existed only for about a year, played a few shows, and recorded these songs, before Jason went back to the US again. And most of all, they were ahead of their times! So then, 25 years later, this very special reissue comes right in time – and it's definitely worth being our 100th anniversary release! And the first 50 copies come with a three-color silkscreened poster additionally!

    HIKING

    Trenches/Bikini Atol

    [engl] First release by this new band from Los Angeles, with 2 exclusive songs recorded at Big Fish Studios, San Diego. Features ex- and current members of the BAD DUDES, BIPOLAR BEAR aka TURRKS, and SILVER DAGGERS. Maybe they sound anything like these, or maybe not... Our initial thought was it sounds like "STEEL POLE BATH TUB meets LES SAVY FAV". Someone else said it's like "a LES SAVY FAV song interpreted by KARP". And another one claimed it's reminiscent of SUPERCONDUCTOR (as on "Hit Songs For Girls"). If you're unfamiliar with any of these references, then you may think as well of something like being stuck in between DEERHOOF and DEERHUNTER... Limited edition of 500 copies on vinyl, with a free mp3-download included!

    HOSTAGES OF AYATOLLAH

    AntHOAlogy

    [engl] The anthology by the HOSTAGES OF AYATOLLAH, one of FIRST german Hardcore-bands, along with the SPERMBIRDS and SKEEZICKS, influenced by the US/Skate&Thrash-Punk! Timeless classic stuff, that’s still amazing and thrilling to listen to after more than 20 years! The HOSTAGES OF AYATOLLAH came from Velbert and took the german scene by storm with their self-released and self-titled 7”EP in 1985 (later repressed on WESER LABEL). All of the tracks from this legendary classic EP, and the songs from the following “Kaaba Kaaba Hey” split-LP MANSON YOUTH (released in 1986 on ZORO RECORDS) are included on this re-issue! Both records are extremely rare and highly-sought after collectible items!!! Fantastically great songs, and in our humble opinion some of the BEST stuff to come out of Germany EVER! Furthermore there are previously unreleased tracks taken from early demo-tapes on this double-vinyl, and additionally to that, the best songs taken from their LP “Simply Too Much Nothing” recorded and released in 1988, shortly before they broke up. Guitarist Jacho aka Johnny Bottrop then moved to Berlin, and later played in a not-so-unknown band called TERRORGRUPPE... As a bonus addition to this double-LP (featuring 32 songs in full!) comes a DVD enclosed, containing videos, live-material and excerpts from the obscure, never finished and never released “Farmer Punks In Love” movie by famous photographer Ar/Gee Gleim! Added as well, a booklet with lyrics, photos and linernotes on 8 pages in LP-size format! And on top of all that, with the first 500 copies there’s a coupon included for a free mp3-download of the entire album!

    KILLER / JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE

    Split

    Nach der KILLERLADY Single, nun der zweite Streich, diesmal als Split mit je einem exklusiven Stück des anderen Solo-Projektes von EA80 Sänger Junge mit der Grind-Death-Punk Kult-Band JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE! Hier lässt der KILLER mit "Dis-something" DISCHARGE mit dem Jazz-Besen exotherm reagieren. Distorted and pissed in weniger als zwei Minuten. JAKA zelebrieren auf ihrer Seite mit "Die Zombies Kommen" nichts Geringeres als das erste sozialkritische Grindmusical. Oder die Dekonstruktion des Metalmarktes? Über fünf Minuten. Da stimmt aber auch alles. Limitierte Auflage von 480 Exemplaren im 4farbigen Karton-Faltcover, beidseitig bedruckt. Jeweils 240 Exexmplare mit der glatten KILLER-Seite aussen, bzw. mit der rauhen JAKA-Seite aussen. Dazu eine schwarze Banderole mit schwarzem Aufdruck, 4farbigen Label-Etiketten, inklusive Inlet, sowie ein Siebdruckkarton/Siebdruckaufkleber.

    KILLERLADY

    s/t

    Solo- Album von EA80 Mastermind Martin Kircher. 11 Tracks minimal Electronic, Noise- Pop, Art-Rock and Avantgarde Non-Music. Die Songs, die nur mit Stimme, Gitarre und Keyboards instrumentiert sind (die meisten, bei nur wenigen gibt´s ein Drumcomputer dazu) haben was sakrales und hypnotisches, und mit Martins´ Stimme (er singt übrigens nur englisch und meist verzerrt) dann direkt etwas unheimliches. Sehr geil, das können auch OM nicht besser. Es gibt auch 1-2 richtige schräge Nummern, die ziemlich auf´s Gemüt gehen. Melt Banana meets mit Billy & the Willis. Limitiert auf 300 copies im Stanzcover mit Farbfoto auf dem Backcover und Foto-Beiblatt. Die Aufnahmen entstanden übrigens zwischen 2003 und 2013 in Martins´ "private hell" (O-Tom).

    [engl] KURT are back, and they're better than ever! Their 3rd full album was exceeding the highest of our expectations! This LP finally captures their sound at its full potential: Razor-sharp guitars, a thundering bass and full-on driving drums, all totally tight and compact, and at the same time clear and crisp! All of the reations we ever got on this record, were exclusively like "Wow! Great! Amazing!" - So you can be sure that this is a record you don't want to miss out!

No final decisions are made yet about the quantity of songs on this vinyl-only release - but rest assured it is gonna be a killer-release that can be filed under Hardcore/Noise-Rock as well as Dance-Punk then!!!

    ROOM 101

    Vox Humana

    [engl] This is ONE MAN recording and playing everything on this three song EP – and it's no less than a FUCKING POWERHOUSE! No hackneyed cliche of Hardcore, like most of contemporary bands do! You'll get a thrilling mixture instead: Thrashing hardcore like with "Exterminate Adult Thinking", a both raging and catchy song like "Drone Wars", and last not least the odd funky Post-Punk song "Boiys" on the B-side. Like the debut EP of ROOM 101, this is a jam-packed and challenging record! Reminding of the best aspects of 80s Hardcore bands like BIG BOYS or REAGAN YOUTH, a great voice in the vein of Sam McPheeters or the young Keith Morris, but it's also slowed down and irritating (with the Wurlitzer organ or womans yelling in "Boiys")... Expect the unexpected. Comes in proper heavy cardboard-cover, with lyric-sheet, mini-poster and download-code included. Artwork by the infamous Winston Smith, the man who designed most of the DEAD KENNEDYS covers and invented the DK-logo.

    SECONDS

    Y

    originally released a a CD-Only on 5 RUE CHRISTINE, we are happy and proud having released this wonderful record on vinyl! The SECONDS are a threepiece-band from New York City, being on the forefront of the Neo-No-Wave/Post-Punk scene, along with bands like RADIO 4, LIARS or EX MODELS - and actually guitarist Zach is now in the EX MODELS as well, while drummer Brian is also a member of the YEAH YEAH YEAHS! Their incredibly tight and frenetic proto-punk, with buzzsaw-like guitars, a punching bass and pounding drums, reminds of the GANG OF FOUR, Richard Hell, DEVO and MINUTEMEN all put into a blender - and their cover-version of MADONNA's ''Burning Up'' is simply awesome!

    SLEAFORD MODS

    Bambi/Scenery

    [engl] Hooray, here it is: Brandnew single, released on our very own label! Two new (previously unreleased!) SMASH hits by the SLEAFORD MODS, who stunned the world earlier this year with their "Austerity Dogs" LP! Rants and raps paired with sparse drum-beats and bass-sounds. As references to their sound, you may cite names like LAST POETS(!), Gil Scott-Heron or John Cooper Clarke, as well as the SEX PISTOLS, THE FALL, or early THE STREETS/Mike Skinner... All of that, and then again now for something completely different. Not to forget their savage poetic knocks (against the music-scene and industry, and all that consumerish crap of today). "Agit-Punk-Rap'n'Rant" maybe? Punk (as fuck) made with the means of Hip-Hop.

    THIS MOMENT IN BLACK HISTORY

    It Takes A Nation Of Assholes To Hold Us Back

    [engl] The 2nd complete full-length album by this awesome band from Cleveland/Ohio – Featuring 14 songs recorded by STEVE ALBINI at Electric Audio Studio in Chicago! Released exclusively worldwide on VINYL via X-MIST RECORDS (CD released on COLD SWEAT RECORDS in the USA)! THIS MOMENT IN BLACK HISTORY includes ex-members of NEON KING KONG, CHARGERS STREET GANG and BASSHOLES – and the band has previously released records on labels like EXIT STENCIL RECORDINGS, VERSION CITY, and GOLD STANDARD LABORATORIES!!! For those unfamiliar, THIS MOMENT IN BLACK HISTORY are a welcome addition to the legendary musical lineage of their home state of Ohio (PAGANS, DEVO, DEAD BOYS, ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS), filling a void in the sound and subject matter sorely missed in contemporary culture. Sonically traversing territories blazed by BAD BRAINS, the MONORCHID, LE SHOK or PERE UBU, while lyrically challenging social and political norms with the wit and insight of such greats as BLACK FLAG or PUBLIC ENEMY. This LP comes with very special artwork, including a printed innersleeve, and a peel-off sticker on the cover (just like back then Andy Warthol’s banana on the legendary first VELVET UNDERGROUND LP...)
