LITOVSK "single round volume 4" (Build Me a Bomb) - 6€
Two brand new songs. Great post punk from France.
SCREAMING SNEAKERS "marching orders (Revoltation) - 8€
Screaming Sneakers started life in South Florida before relocating to New York City. Ôhe band only released the one ep, 1982's Marching Orders. Featuring a top vocal from Lisa Nash, as well as the talents of Gary Sunshine (guitar), Bud Gangemi (bass) and Mark Evans (drums), this is a song that wraps up dark lyrics in a bright fizzing rush of a tune. Violent Days" is a great 80s punk anthem and the standout track on this 4 song EP, however fans of death rock might be attracted to the melancholic, new wave jams of "Grin and Bear" and "Reflections". This recent 7" fanclub import isn't cheap, but it's a lot more affordable than the 1982 original.
DATA FRAGMENTS - st (Geheimnis) - 16€
Wonky Doll And The Echo is a Greek post punk revival band formed in mid-2010. Their music can be described as a mixture of post-punk, indie rock with a minimal 80’s touch, incorporating a modern, alternative sound. Although recently formed, Wonky Doll And The Echo recorded their promo CD-R/EP on December 2010. Furthermore, Wonky Doll And The Echo have been highly active since their formation, making live performances in various famous Athenian stages, such as Six D.O.G.S, BIOS, Seven Sins and Nouvelle Decadence. They also appeared as supporting act for two of the most famous and high reputable bands of the dark alternative music genre, Clan of Xymox and The Frozen Autumn, in two concerts that took place at Kittaro Live club in Athens, on December 2011 and on February 2012 respectively.
Geheimnis Records proudly welcomes and presents its first collaboration with this new band, releasing its first LP album on 300 limited edition, hand-numbered vinyl records and in digital format for digital downloading. The album includes 9 songs, many of them already known from the band’s live gigs, but with a total new mix and mastering, compared to the promo editions.

999 (NINE NINE NINE) "the biggest prize in sport" (Restless Empire) - 16€
After two terrific albums with United Artists, the boys in 999 signed a deal with Polydor and released what is now considered as their finest full length LP, "The Biggest Prize In Sport". While still a 'punk' band, 999 were born during the pub scene and had more meat on their musical bones than most punks, and instead of turning away from their punk sound, they simply refined it. Upon first listening to this album, many folks were amazed to find out that 999 were a great rock n roll band, punk or no punk. The edges are still there, but they are more well-rounded this time out thanks to producer Vic Maile. The anthemic "Boys In The Gang" starts off the set in style (but 999 always knew how to kickstart an album). "Inside Out", with Guy Days' twisted guitar riff, picks up the pace. Although "Trouble" slows things down with it's reggae groove, it's such a great change of pace (Nick Cash's wail sounds similar to the Specials' Terry Hall on this track). "Fun Thing" has a great little hook and a powerful guitar solo that will grab you by the balls. "Hollywood", about their first trip to California, received solid airplay in the U.S., and has remained a 999 classic ever since. "Stop! Stop!" is a bouncy little bubblegum punk nugget. Practically every track a classic.
ABANDONED "killed by faith" (Radiation) - 15€
Originally released in 1985, this is the sole album by Tony Cadenas' own The Abandoned, the band he formed after the Adolescents original break up in 1981. Sounding a lot like Tony's original band but with an heavier Germs influence, and a more metallic, darker, almost Motörhead-esque touch. As long as Adolescents got back on track, right before releasing their mid '80s comeback masterpiece 'Brats In Battalions' this obscure page of California punk rock history got completely forgotten and was never reopened until today. A band that really pushed the boundaries for the time while sticking to their roots, something most bands were not able to do. A must for all California punk rock maniacs out there!
ADOLESCENTS - s/t (Restless Empire) - 16€
Adolescents, also known as The Blue Album due to its cover design, is the debut studio album by American punk rock band the Adolescents, released in April 1981 on Frontier Records. Recorded after guitarist Rikk Agnew and drummer Casey Royer joined the band, it features several songs written for their prior group, the Detours, including "Kids of the Black Hole" and "Amoeba", which became two of the Adolescents' most well-known songs. Adolescents was one of the first hardcore punk albums to be widely distributed throughout the United States, and became one of the best-selling California hardcore albums of its time. The band never toured in support of it, and broke up four months after its release. The Blue Album lineup of Agnew, Royer, guitarist Frank Agnew, bassist Steve Soto and singer Tony Brandenburg reunited several times in subsequent years, but only for brief periods. Limited repress on Restless Empire. Blue/black splatter vinyl.
BLITZ "second empire justice" (Restless Empire) - 16€
Limited repress on Restless Empire."When Crisis had their own personal Joy Division epiphany, they ultimately became Death in June. When the rowdy Oi! band The Blitz went through the same thing, they abruptly changed musical course and released Second Empire Justice, alienating their skinhead fanbase almost overnight. Like Joy Division, New Order, and Death in June, Blitz’s name had sketchy political connotations; Nietzschean song titles like “New Age” didn’t help. In fact, it was “New Age” and especially its promo video, which exaggerated things just a little bit by stating the band were from Manchester (really, they were from nearby New Mills) – that signaled the sea change in the band’s sound. Suddenly the Blitz were dressed in all black dress shirts, and it sounded like Bernard Sumner was guesting on guitar. Oi! seer Gary Bushell had claimed Blitz’s 1982 Voice of a Generation LP was like The Clash’s debut album “in terms of feel, suss and relevance.” Comparisons like this came to aquick halt after Second Empire Justice came out." (Cvlt Nation)
BLITZ "no future for april fools" (Radiation) - 15€
Blitz were among the most influential punk bands ever. It was Gary Bushell (who wrote for Sounds and was later dubbed the 'Godfather of Oi!') who brought the band to the attention of his friend Chris Berry, who had just set up No Future records with a bank loan and high hopes. No Future 001 (and Blitz's debut release) was a 4-track EP titled 'All Out Attack', a 20,000-copy bestseller that made the label's fortune, later to become the most representative of the whole UK82 movement. Its follow-up, 'Never Surrender', reached number 2 on the Indie charts, while their 3rd EP, 'Warriors', showed their slight move towards the sing-a-long style of classic Oi! Recorded live at the legendary Lyceum in London in April of 1982, just after the release of their second 7" (with a few tracks from the Skunx club in Islington recorded a few weeks later) this is the band at their absolute live peak. Crucial UK OI! recorded live, the way the genre was meant to be heard, with a beer in one hand and the other with a fist in the air. Blazing and brutal and classic UK82.
CHRISTIAN DEATH "only theater of pain" (Restless Empire) - 16€
Limited repress on Restless Empire. Gold vinyl. Only Theatre of Pain is the debut studio album by American rock band Christian Death, released in March 24, 1982 by record label Frontier. The album was produced by Christian Death and Thom Wilson. It is considered by most critics to be the harbinger of deathrock.
CRAWL NOISE “wall of noisecore” (F.O.A.D.) - 16€ (Black Vinyl)
when Grindcore was starting to spread all around and some maniacs tried to push the genre to even fiercer extremes, giving birth to the whole short-song Noisecore saga of bands like 7 MINUTES OF NAUSEA, ANAL CUNT, VIOLENT NOISE ATTACK, STENCH OF CORPSE, SOUND POLLUTION, TUMOR and so on. CRAWL NOISE were clearly inspired by early NAPALM DEATH and SORE THROAT, but they pushed the level of madness and brutality to way more devastating boundaries. And their drummer Osi was then called to join the mighty FEAR OF GOD, so try to imagine how fast he was. As Erich Keller states: “After I saw Crawl Noise live, I tried everything to steal the drummer Osi for my own band Fear Of God.” This LP includes all their existing recordings: the first demo “Musical rape” (1988), their Demo #2 (1989) and two complete live sets from 1987 to 1988 (one was included on the B-side of their only 7″ and the other in some killer compilation tapes like “Rudi Rat 1” and SOA’s “Use your anger“).
What you get here is a deadly tornado of aberrant, antimusical Noisecore putrefaction blasting through impossibly fast drumming delirium, some awful background noise that could be a guitar/bass as much as a microphone pushed into a cement mixer, and at the top of all some of the most disturbing vomited grunts you can think of. Countless tracks, complete acoustic demolition! Includes an insert with liner notes and original artworks from their few releases around at the time! Black vinyl limited to 200. Click HERE for the trailer!
DEATH RIDGE BOYS "right side of history" (Black Water) - 19€
"right side of history" deliver 7 tracks of hard-hitting anti-nazi oi! played by Portland punk vets. These guys have been around the block a few times having played in bands like CRIMINAL DAMAGE, TALK IS POISON, TRAGEDY etc. so you can be sure they know how to write a song. Music with a message, equal parts passion and political with intelligent lyrics and catchy riffs that are sure to get stuck in your head. This is a one-time vinyl pressing of 500 copies on colored, 180gr vinyl with lyric sheet and poster.
DESTRUCTORS "exercise the demons of youth" (Radiation) - 15€
The Destructors were a classic UK82-era group originating from Peterborough, north of London and not exactly a hot-bed of punk activity. Rising out of the ashes of the short-lived first wave punk group The Blanks, who released one single in 1979, The Destructors latched onto the second wave sound and never looked back. Featuring liner notes by none other than the legendary Genesis P-Orridge, who wrote "In vinyl we have the ectoplasm of youth. The final psychic rally. A present testament set in present time. Breath in a dead soul. Hanging by a thread. Convinced and betrayed at zero point lies history." Another killer piece of rare UK '80s punk reissued by the fine folks at Radiation.
DIÄT "positive disintegration" (Blackest Ever Black)
Years in the making, the follow-up or maybe even companion piece to 2015's "Positive Energy", "Positive Disintegration" sees the band with a bit more of a pop zap to the ever present post punk dreariness of modern Berlin life... Or even modern life at large as most of the lyrical content has to do with the monotony of barely getting by or trying to have a meaningful exchange with a remotely interesting person. These things are hard to come by most of the time and this music eats at that very feeling. It's almost enough to make you wanna throw in the towel and move to Spain without a care in the world to haunt your remaining days. You probably won't though, you'll most likely listen to this record while you sip your overpriced room temperature coffee drink whilst ordering new bulbs for your anti depression lamp from a major online retailer. It just feels like life is getting away from you, ya know? Dark.
550 on black 140gr vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with lyric sheet, poster and download card included. Recorded by Tobias Lill. Mastered by Daniel Husayn. Art by Yuta Matsumura and Made Ollosp.
ENZYME "howling mind" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
After two 7"s on Crust War and Hardcore Victim and a Tour flexi in Japan on Vox Populi Records, Australian noise-punx Enzyme release their debut 10 track debut album. The band made up of ex members of Pisschrist, Kromosom and Unknown to Gods worship at the alter of Perdition era Disorder, Chaos UK and Confuse. The bass drives the sound, the drums hectic with a lot of rolling tom tom work whilst the guitar has an immense tone of buzzing distortion and flanged psychedelics. Get ready to pogo!
EXPLOITED "troops of tomorrow" (Restless Empire) - 16€
In the early '80s, British punk took a turn toward hardcore and the Exploited (along with G.B.H, Disorder, etc.) led the charge. The beat was fast and furious, the politics ferocious, and the magenta mohawk became state of the art. This album is blessed with great production, something many hardcore albums lack, meaning the froth and fury don't come across as a total muddle. Moreover, the machine gun beat comes with hooks that leave you humming along with the tunes. Big John was a decent guitarist and his fireball leads add spice to the mix. Highlights here are "Disorder," "Alternative," "U.S.A." and the title track (penned by the Vibrators). The album is as much a glimpse of the gutter politics of the U.K. under Maggie Thatcher, giving voice to frustration and emptiness of a generation of street kids who looked on the waning empire and saw themselves left out. It's raw, loud, and a downright classic. This is a crucial album in the evolution of The Exploited. The opening track is enough anarchic assault on the ears to make any punk fan realize these guy's meant buisness! It is altogether a solid album, guitar is great, the drums are loud and fast and the vox are pist. This album is a classic and more than half the songs are more than note worthy ("Sid Vicious Was Innocent", "Jimmy Boyle", Troops Of Tomorrow", "F--- The U.S.A." and "Alternative" are the best!!). "but don't take my word for it"
FATAMORGANA "terra alta" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
Formed in Barcelona in the summer of 2017, Fatamorgana sprang to life from the hearts and minds of Patrycja Anna Proniewska and Louis Harding. What began as a bedroom project of sorts (monophonic synthesisers, 4-track cassette recordings) the project soon blossomed into a functional live unit. Following a self-released cassette single at the start of the year, the pair spent the latter part of 2018 touring continental Europe and the west coast of North America.
Recorded at Holyrook Estudio in Barcelona, Terra Alta is the group's first full-length effort. The verse-chorus songwriting, the raw set-up of 2-synths-and-a-beat, and the primal rhythms nod to the duo's background in punk. But Terra Alta has a pensive and mesmeric quality, provided in part by an outstanding production job (Studio AS One, Warsaw), but also by lyrics concerning themselves with themes of love, time travel, reflections on the future, the power of imagination and the mysteries of the natural world. If pressed for musical references the band could be pin-pointed somewhere between early DEPECHE MODE, YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS, THE HUMAN LEAGUE and a rounder around the edges BORGHESIA.
Dreamlike synthesisers and echoed voices circle around danceable rhythms, inviting you to simultaneously contemplate and move your body. Allow yourself to be teleported from the majesty of Nature, to the glow of the discotheque.
GHOUL "night out" (GhoulNightOut) - 20€
Seminal 80's Japanese punk band, fronted by the one handed, raspy-voiced, fan-punching legend Masami, who passed on young (like many of his contemporaries) in the early 90's, apparently of liver failure brought on by excessive love of the drink. The original Ghoul broke up in '85, as there's the official VHS entitled "Last Gig" out on ACC video label. The band got back together as "Ghoul II" with a different line-up in the late '86 (or possibly in the early '87), changed the name to "Sqwad" (originally called Masami with Sqwad) sometime during the summer of '88, either right before or after they played the "Complete Death" show at the Toshima Public Hall in Tokyo on July 17th '88, then broke up and got back together again as "Ghoul III" in '89 with just a slightly different line-up than "Ghoul II" and pretty much remained active until Masami puked the blood on the stage and went into a coma afterwards in the early '90s. "Ghoul II" and "Ghoul III" - that's exactly how Masami called themselves when they got reformed twice and those names were often mentioned in the interviews, magazine articles and that's how they were usually listed in the gig flyers as well. As most of the serious fans probably noticed, they're credited as "Sqwad (ex-Ghoul)" on the "Complete Death Live" VHS tape (released on January 1st '89), however,
in the flyers for this show they were still listed as "Ghoul II". So, probably they changed the name to "Sqwad" right before this show or after, but sometime before the VHS came out. Later, they played as "Sqwad" during the year of '89, released 7" flexi on Slice Records and broke up before the mid '89 and got back together again later the same year (before the summer). The Ghoul tracks you find on the "Game Of Death" compilation LP (which was released in July '89) are the only recorded material by "Ghoul III", although they're simply credited as "Ghoul" on this release.
Limited to 200 copies, fantastic top quality release, mastered for vinyl for best/huge sound. Includes a double sided insert and sticker! Import from Australia. 15 songs in total.
Tracks 1-5: Carry Out Fucking EP (1984)
Track 6: Oi! Oi! single (1985)

GUTTER KNIFE "boots on the ground" (Quality Control) - 15€
"The chalky white and golden brown of the rows and rows of houses, sodden from an eternity of days on the Brighton seaside. The disconnected punctuation of hobnail boots on wet tarmac. Hardcore punk, handed the UK82 marching orders and sent to the frontlines of the war 86 Mentality started, with Arms Race and Violent Reaction keeping the home fires burning. The same grey walls inside which you can redefine and rebuild. The NOW Wave of British Hardcore.
Wide and crooked vocals over riffs that move in and out of the speed and aggression of early HC and the inclination to get drunk and grab someone. Not quite a pogo, yet not quite a slam, with finer clobber and and the necessary swagger. Like a knife, but from the gutter."
Jonah Falco, Fucked Up/Career Suicide.
350 x blue vinyl
Comes in a black poly lined inner sleeve, matte card outer sleeve, screen printed double sided card insert, resealable plastic bag, and download code.
MAU MAUS "society's rejects" (Sealed) - 16€
Named after the 1950's secret political action from Kenya, and inspired by a U.S. Hardcore act of the same name, Sheffield's Mau Maus formed after leaving school in late '79. They made their live debut in 1981 supporting the Angelic Upstarts, apparently on the proviso that they dropped their abysmal rendition of 'Liddle Towers'. They started gigging in London in 1982 and played with such luminaries as the Upstarts, Urban Dogs and Dead Kennedys. Signing to Marcus Featherby's Pax Records they recorded and released a handful of punchy, fast-moving EP's that saw them achieve considerable success in punk circles, and in 1983 they went on tour with Pax labelmates The Exploited. Unfortunately, at the end of the tour bassist Bunny collapsed on stage and was later diagnosed with cancer. They carried on with a new bassist and started their own label, Rebellion, releasing another single (Tear Down The Walls E.P.) and finally their debut studio LP, Fear No Evil (they actually made their LP debut in 1983 with Live At The Marples). Popularity now on the wane, their last recording saw the addition of a second guitarist and the return of Bunny. Nowhere To Run did nothing and, in 1986, they packed it in. LP compiling their singles.
PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES "soberphobia" (Restless Empire) - 16€
This is the 5th studio album by Peter and the Test Tube Babies released in 1986 and contains such hits like All About Love, Every Second Counts, Key To The City, etc. Great tuneful Punk Rock from these Punk legends.
PETER & THE TEST TUBE BABIES "loud blaring punk rock" (Radiation) - 15€
The fourth full-length by the UK punk legends, originally released in 1985, sees a reissue on vinyl! This one is the epitome of childish, unrefined and perfect punk rock and roll. With such deep, poetic titles as 'We're Too Drunk', 'Pick Yer Nose (And Eat It)' or 'Beat Up The Mods', you know what you're getting!
POISON “into the abyss – resurrected” LP + CD + Poster (F.O.A.D.)
Available in 2 different versions:
Die-hard splatter vinyl (black speckles on crystal clear) + CD limited to 100 copies - 19€
Black vinyl + CD limited to 200 copies - 17€
POISON’s infernal cult is alive!! Just when you thought that it was all said and done with FOAD‘s monster-work “Hoelle und vernichtung” (a colossal boxset including the band’s complete discography), the wizard of darkness and evil Uli Hildenbrand unearthed from his rotting vaults a lost & found mastertape of “Into the abyss” transfered directly from the studio reels back in 1987, unlike all the previously existing re-issues that were all taken from the 1st vinyl pressing. This version is the most pristine and faithful to the original studio recordings you can think of, sounding farly better than any other release around. Pure infernal armageddon from one of the most ancient pioneering Black / Death Metal hellhounds of the mittel-European scene of the 80’s. Originally recorded in 1986, released on tape in 1987 and then 6 years later on vinyl/LP by Median Creations, “Into the abyss” is the only real studio recording of this blasphemic Teutonic horde and hands down their most powerful production, considering that the previous demos were all rough DIY recordings made in their practice space.
What you will find on this masterpiece is pummeling and barbaric death / thrash metal with plenty of early black metal elements from their earlier works. The progress this band had made in less then a year of their previous recording is remarkable, but at the same time, when looking at each demo in chronological order, you see a steady progression in their sound from recording to recording, so seeing the band improve this much should not really be a shocker. “Into the abyss” is essential for anyone even remotely into brutal, vicious 80’s death/thrash, as well as old school black metal and the mid-late 80’s proto-death metal sound. LP with bonus CD and A2 poster with photos and liner notes (written by Uli Hildenbrand). Click HERE for the trailer!
RAKTA "falha comum" (La Vida Es Un Mus) - 16€
With a slight line up change in the drum department we see RAKTA tighten up their more tense, soundtrack natured developments alongside their more sparse and vulnerable elegance. They consistently manage to create a tripped out creep chamber with room to explore as the aura builds to nightmare crescendos juxtaposed with shaking silences. Simultaneously eerie and serene. With each new release we see more and more of what makes this group so essential in the canon of modern music.
300 copies on black vinyl and 100 on bone colour vinyl housed in a beautiful printed inner sleeve inside a heavy duty reversible cover with a vellum insert. Recorded by Fernando Sanchez. Mastered by James Plotkin. Art by André Penteado, Karlla Giratto and Rakta.

RAW POWER “reptile house – XX anniversary” (F.O.A.D.) PICTURE LP + CD - 18€
Originally released on CD and tape back in 1998, “Reptile house” stands as one of RAW POWER‘s best efforts of their ’90s discography.

Here you finally get it for the first time on vinyl and completely remastered, in a special Picture Disc version limited to 400, housed in an elegant die cut sleeve.

RESISTANCE 77 "thoroughbred men" (Radiation) - 15€
Making its deserved, yet first ever return to vinyl, it's the 1984 full-length by the acclaimed Oi! unit from Nottingham. 'Thoroughbred Men' is a smoking, somewhat obscure piece of UK street punk history!
S.H.I.T. "complete S.H.I.T." (La Vida En Us Mus) - 15€
It could have been Total Shit, Utter Shit, All Shit or any other number of puns but you lucky fuckers get Complete Shit - the 21 track round up of everything these Toronto Shitters have committed to 7” Vinyl from 2014 to 2016 on Static Shock Records, Iron Lung, Lengua Armada Discos and La Vida Es Un Mus. Shit came from the womb fully formed with a stunning Demo from 2012 but that was no surprise as in there ranks was ex members of Violent Future, Urban Blight and Purity Control. The sound is raging hardcore with stomping drums, dirty guitar work with and reverbed vocals. I know you’ve heard that before but the trick is that Shit write songs that stick in your head and a strong production by Jonah Falco. These tracks are too good to be lost on sold out 7”s.
SAD LOVERS & GIANTS "epic garden music" (Radiation)- 16€
Sad Lovers And Giants are one of the best-kept secrets of the '80s; chiming guitars meet with atmospheric keyboards, and the haunting, emotive vocals of the enigmatic Garce. The group formed in Watford, England in 1980, and after the release of several singles and 2 albums, by 1983 they had disbanded, to be mostly forgotten to the record store bins of yore. But the years have been very very kind to Sad Lovers & Giants and their particular brand of pastoral post-punk and wave has grown in stature to the point that original LPs fetch collectors sums. Doing its part to solve this problem is this wonderful numbered limited edition splatter vinyl reissue from Radiation Reissues for RSD 2019. Includes 6 bonus tracks from early singles.
SECTEUR PAVÉ - st (No Glory) - 14€
Secteur Pavé is new band with members of Litovsk and Syndrome 81. Melodic and melancholic Brest Oi! Punk.
SKITSYSTEM "stigmata" (Havoc) - 15€
US-import! - "Stigmata" is the third LP of dark and menacing Swedish crust core from the masters. It is also the first recording to feature Micke (of Martyrdod) on second guitar. This LP takes one step deeper into the dark realm that Skitystem has created with heavy metallic, crunchy guitars, harshly growled and screamed vocals and a constant D-beat of the drums.
SOCIAL DISTORTION "poshboy little monster" (Radiation) - 15€ (Black Vinyl) / 17€ (Red Vinyl)
Formed in Fullerton, CA in 1978, Social Distortion were one of the original LA punk groups and their first single was released on legendary LA punk label Posh Boy. But far more rare than that first single ('Mainliner' b/w 'Playpen') is the unreleased EP 'Poshboy's Little Monsters'. This EP only made it to the test pressing stage back in 1981, and featured those two tracks from the first single along with 'All The Answers' and 'Justice For All.' This is the absolute holy grail for Social Distortion fans and it's finally available in commercial form for RSD 2019. Also includes 2 bonus tracks: '1945' and 'Moral Threat'.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES - s/t (Restless Empire) - 16€
Limited repress on Restless Empire. Red/black splatter vinyl.Suicidal Tendencies is the debut studio album by American crossover thrash band Suicidal Tendencies. The album was released on July 5, 1983, through Frontier Records with the catalog number FLP 011. It became one of the best-selling punk albums at the time and launched the band into its future success. Suicidal Tendencies has received positive reviews from music critics, and by 1993, the album had sold at least 400,000 copies. "Institutionalized" was released as a single to promote the album.
TRAITRE "discographie" (UVPR / LADA / LCDE) LP + EP - 15€
If you’ve never heard of Traitre, here’s your chance to have a listen to one of the best melancholico-Oi! band from Lille in France. These guys have been important in the French punk oi! scene in the past 5 years. All their records have been sold out very quickly, even with a very DIY distribution (most of them were originally available mainly at their concerts and sold on "name you price" standart). This complete collection gathers their 3 EPs, the maxi 12", the tracks on compilations and their tape as bonus on the 7" EP, 18 óïíãó éí ôïôáë. Include inner sleeve and silkscreen print poster.

Two classics records on one LP. Tracks on A side are from "T. S. O. L." 12" originally released by Posh Boy in 1981, four tracks on B side are from "Weathered Statues" EP released by Alternative Tentacles in 1982.
T.S.O.L. "dance with me" (Fan Club) - 15€
Dance with Me is the first full-length album by the American hardcore punk band T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty), released in 1981 though Frontier Records.
T.S.O.L. "beneath the shadows" (Fan Club) - 15€
Beneath the Shadows is the second studio album by the American hardcore punk band T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty), released in 1983 through Alternative Tentacles. With the addition of keyboardist Greg Kuehn to the lineup, the band moved away from punk rock in favor of a gothic rock sound in the vein of The Damned and Siouxsie and the Banshees, alienating much of their hardcore audience in the process. Though the album was critically well received and led to the band being featured in director Penelope Spheeris' film Suburbia, it was largely rejected by their fanbase within the punk scene.
UK SUBS "engangeried species" (Beat Generation) - 16€
Originally released in 1982, the U.K. Subs fourth studio album is considered by many of the band's fans their finest moments, and there's many reasons why it could very well be: the record's powerful sound (courtesy of the production of the Subs own Nicky Garratt) made justice to a band on top of their game, recording some of the best songs of their career.
WARCOLLAPSE "deserts of ash" (Phobia) 12" LP - 14€
The Swedish masters of SCANDI-CRUST are finally back on the map with their first new recordings/songs since 2008's "DEFY!" Album on Profane Existence. 5 songs of roaring bulldozer CRUSTCORE with the WARCOLLAPSE heaviness and the unmistaken old school vibe of 90'ties crust-league veterans DOOM, SARCASM and of course some wretched, wrecked and wasted ANTI-CIMEX and DISCHARGE.

ZODD "operationally ready dead" (La Vida Es Un Mus)
Every genre splinters and flowers out from it's original starting point and hardcore is no exception, mutating fractally out from its supercharged punk roots, twisting through trends, evolutions and regressions, crashing back in on itself until you end up with an international sprawl of scenes and subscenes, styles within styles, odd misshapen fusions and hellbent worship bands.
If you were looking for a sound that could encapsulate the myriad forms that hardcore takes in 2018 one could do a lot worse than slam a record on by ZODD, who have emerged from the vibrant Singapore punk/hardcore scene in the wake of bands like Vaarallinen, Sial and Lubricant. Operationally Ready Dead have an approach based in a vicious pogo-thump but drawing in elements of hardcore's various strands, echoing screams ripping painfully through chomping riffs, weird enough for the freakpunx, hard enough for the mosh kids, chaotic and blown out, squealing and stumbling, but never losing it's dynamism, ten tracks of contemporary anxiety shaped into hardcore anger, apocalyptic angst, psychopaths with uniforms and without, society's born corrupt, getting darker still. ZODD provide a searing soundtrack to this and more. DYSTOPIAN FUTURE IS NOW.
Operationally Ready Dead front cover was designed by Nicky Rat and it comes with a lyric insert designed by the band. Check out the LP on bandcamp
ZOUNDS "can't cheat karma" (Sealed) - 16€
The second release on Sealed Records is a 14 Track round up of the five singles by Zounds. The debut single from 1980 Can't Cheat Karma was released on Crass Records and 39 Years later still stands as one of the finest singles both politically and musically. For the next three singles Zounds released them on Rough Trade Records, along with their debut album The Curse of Zounds. 1981's Demystification was a tense and stark masterpiece. It was followed by the haunting Mikey Dread-produced Dancing and then the more straight up pop of More Trouble Coming Everyday. The final single of Zounds Mark 1 was La Vacht Qui Rit released on Belgium label Not So Brave in 1983 and was originally supposed to be a split single with The Mob but ended up with two scratchy studio tracks and two rough and raw live tracks recorded in Holland in 1982. Every home should have these essential Zounds recordings.
