• STEP TO FREEDOM is a Russian band that began their difficult journey in a land that doesn't want them at the beginning of the last decade and that defines itself as Crust punk underground front! Against state control! They released their first self produced cassette "Social Zombies" in 2014, later reissued by Audacious Madness Records (U.S.A.) together with their second album called "Cemetery For The Humaniknd" (originally out in 2018 on Makima Records, also from Russia) in 2021. After one EP on tape and a 7", both respectively released in 2019 and 2023 by Blown Out Media Records (U.S.A.), they are back with what, in my opinion, is their best release so far. The monolithic sound of their new recordings suggests a maturation of the group both from a compositional point of view and from that of awareness of the use of effects and mastery of the instruments they play. I felt like a tank had rolled over my back after I first listened to this album. Granitic stench core meets crust core with a touch of death metal here and there all packed in a clear recording which allows us to imagine the difficult moment that the guys are going through, forced into the prison of the institutions that govern their state. Fans of Amebix, Axegrinder, Deviated Instinct, Hellshock and Instinct Of Survival will love this. Available on tape from Chainsaw Distro, Runstate Tapes (both from Canada) and Headnoise Records (Russia); on CD from Blown Out Media (U.S.A.) and on vinyl from Agipunk (Europe) and Audacious Madness Records (U.S.A.)

    Stepmother is an Australian power trio fronted by Graham Clise on vocals and guitar (Annihilation Time, Lecherous Gaze, Rot TV, Witch), and are poised to release their debut album Planet Brutalicon on September 29th. Equal parts motor city proto-punk and feedback-drenched fuzz on the darker side of psychedelia, Stepmother plays anthems for the poor depraved sickos and rock ‘n’ roll miscreants with influences ranging from Blue Cheer & The Pink Fairies to Nervous Eaters & The Damned. Chocked full of tunes about nuclear armageddon, torture and supernatural entities, Planet Brutalicon is a perfect soundtrack to your next bad trip. The upcoming LP was recorded by Robert Muinos at Rat Shack (Saskwatch) and mastered by John Davis (The Damned) at Metropolis Mastering. Label: Tee Pee Records Barcode: 0707239925219
  • Remastered and for the first time on vinyl this incredible 12" EP where the country legend Steve Earle teams up with the Supersuckers. Originally released in 1997. The Supersuckers decided to up the country ante during the recording of their fourth album, Must've Been High, turning themselves into some kind of genuine cowpunks (the group was always punkier and rowdier than any '80s cowpunk outfit). So, it was only fitting that the band followed the album with a split-single with the punkiest country singer of the '80s, Steve Earle. In classic Sub Pop tradition -- think the classic Mudhoney/Jimmie Dale Gilmore split single, in particular, but there are loads others -- the Suckers tackle an Earle song ("Angel Is the Devil") and Earle covers one of their tunes ("Creepy Jackalope Eye"), then after a joint cover (the Rolling Stones' "Before They Make Me Run," the definitive Keith Richards anthem), the originals are offered up. (All Music) TRACKLIST 1. Creepy Jackalope Eye 03:06 2. Supersuckers with Steve Earle - Angel Is The Devil 01:48 3. Before They Make Me Run 03:50 4. Supersuckers - Creepy Jackalope Eye 02:19 5.

  • The first, best and only Stiff Little Fingers album that you need. Released originally in 1979 as the first album ever on Rough Trade, it is harsh, brutal, primitive punk rock with sadly still relevant lyrics about the troubles in Northern Ireland. This stands head and shoulders above all other albums of the time. Their punk rock aesthetic is authentic, with raw lyricism and harsh instrumentation. Containing the anthemic track Alternative Ulster, Stiff Little Fingers promote the ‘grab it and change it’ narrative. Label: Parlophone Records Barcode: 190295448271

    The longest-tenured Irish punk band is undoubtedly Stiff Little Fingers – who have been bashing and thrashing since 1977. And the triple-disc set, “Live at Rockpalast 1980 & 1989”, shows that the band remained a vital live band (and also, stayed true to their roots) throughout the ‘80s, despite a five-year hiatus smack dab in the middle of the decade. Singer/guitarist Jake Burns has been the band’s leader since their inception – with bassist Ali McMordie standing right alongside Jake most of the time – which saw Stiff Little Fingers being a part of the first-wave of Euro punk bands, which included the lofty likes of the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Damned, the Buzzcocks, the Jam, etc. And in the process, Stiff Little Fingers issued such classic punk LP’s as “Inflammable Material”, “Nobody’s Heroes” and “Go for It” plus the punk anthems “Alternative Ulster", “Suspect Device” and “At the Edge”. Comprised of a total of three discs, “Live at Rockpalast 1980 & 1989” will certainly satisfy both your audio and visual needs – the first two discs are audio-only, featuring the 1980 and 1989 performances, while the third disc is a DVD of the group’s classic 1980 appearance on Germany’s long-running music show. Jake Burns still remembers: "The place was packed and the audience were with us from the first note. They were wonderful, singing and bouncing along. It really felt like a "home game" to use a football analogy. I thought we played really well too, apart from a slight timing mistake during "Back to Front", a new song we were still learning. (See if you can spot my giving Jim the "look of death" at that point! LOL!)." Track list 1.

    This is the soundtrack to flipping through the filing cabinet at the mortuary in Return of the Living Dead. You are running out of time before ending up on the slab yourself at the end of a bad day at work. Wash away the blues with a pint and 12 tracks clocking in at just under 14 minutes whilst Stiff Meds take you on a journey to see the many faces of death. Starting in 2019, Stiff Meds arose from the grand tradition of fast as fuck music that has always been at the centre of UKHC from Napalm Death to Voorhees. Taking that history, along with some more US influences such as No Comment and Infest, vocalist Seth marries that with tales of the macabre as metaphors for daily life. Each song contains more riffs than most brains can compute in real time and is a testament to the skill level of the band. Not surprisingly they have grown a reputation as a ferocious live machine that blasts through 20+ songs with ease and without stops with wild crowd reactions to match. If you don’t believe us, then check out the Live at the Mersey Shore Set as an exclusive special feature of the physical vinyl release of Tales from the Slab. Don’t delay, it’s time to pick up your prescription. Label: Quality Control Records
  • STIFF RICHARDS | dig | LP

    20.00 incl. tax
    Wait: is this another face-melting punk act from Australia?! You best believe it! Stiff Richards hail from the Australian South Coast and kick up a racket so forceful and ferocious that you'd swear these guys have been listening to Raw Power since birth. Dig is the group's second album!! There's nothing fancy going on here: just raw, savage rock n' roll that kicks you straight in the teeth and comes back for more. These gentlemen have definitely absorbed the lessons of the Detroit and Aussie rock of yore, and they manage to invigorate that sonic tradition with an energy that's off the charts. You've got guitars firing at full fury, a punishing rhythm section, and a madman howler on lead vocals who probably literally spits fire. "Do It Right Now" may be as blatant of a Stooges homage as you'll ever hear, but it's also one of the best. Play it at max volume, and you will feel indestructible!

  • European pressing of the amazing debut Stiff Richards LP, originally released on Legless Records. "Funny to think there was a time not so long ago when Stiff Richards was a name that required explanation - but not to you, of course, o punk connoisseur. This is your territory, after all. Music is your oxygen and the sound of the underground is your clarion call. You can explain the distinction between ‘Know Your Product’ and ‘No, You’re Product’. Hey, you’re probably pretty good-looking too. You know your shit, either way. So no wonder you’re drawn to this relative holy grail of modern garage rock - the 2017 self-titled debut album by the aforementioned Stiff Richards. Originally released on their own Stiff Records (and again by Legless in 2020), it lays down all the elements that made last year’s mighty ‘State of Mind’ LP such an instant classic. OK, we’ve established you know the drill, but let’s recap: scintillating Aus-punk that recalls the heroic high-speed riffs of their countrymen The Saints and Radio Birdman. It sounds like Royal Headache covering Motörhead, or maybe the other way around. It’s a full-on riot in 30 minutes - the rawest of rock’n’roll bleeding into the grimiest of power chords with hooks for days. You already know you’re gonna love it. Whether going full-throttle and aiming straight for the nerve receptors that get your head a-nodding and your toes a-tapping - like on sub-three-minute highlight ‘Strung Out’ - or sludgin’ their way through groovier cuts like ‘Bustin’ Out’, they’re never less than a treat that’s guaranteed to get your serotonin flowing and your speakers up to 11 (or beyond). As a certain similarly-named record label once said, if it ain’t Stiff, it ain’t worth a fuck. Frightfully rude, but that’s rock music for you, I suppose. Get it in your ears."

    First things first - you don’t need me to tell you about the significance of Australia in the history of punk. I mean, what am I, Jon Savage? Google it yourself, FFS. Instead, let’s just agree that the speedy, feral racket thrown together by the likes of The Saints, Radio Birdman and The Scientists in the mid-late ‘70s is AT LEAST as deliriously entertaining as anything concocted by their UK/US counterparts, sowing the seeds for seemingly endless garage-inflected noisemakers in the land down under. No one likes using words like ‘tradition’ or ‘heritage’ here - the punk rock clusterbomb is far too messy for any of that business - but also emerging from Australian rock’s primordial soup is the addictive sneer of Stiff Richards. Like their predecessors, the band are a gleefully wracked mess of full throttle energy and barrelling power chords, with songs like ‘Kids Out On The Grass’ and ‘Point of You’ proving at least the equal of ‘(I’m) Stranded’ or ‘Aloha Steve And Danno’. Nine tracks in less than 30 minutes, all winners and all determined to leave you flipping over couches and smashing your TV set. And let’s face it, you may as well; there’s nothing good on. It all builds towards frantic closer ‘Fill In The Blanks’, which rattles around your speakers like the UK Subs trying to play Ed Kuepper riffs at the centre of an earthquake, before grinding to a halt as a voice says, “That’s the one.” Does it sound self-satisfied? Hey, it’s got good reason to - this is the best no-frills garage rock party since Gino & The Goons’ ‘Do The Get Around’, and the only appropriate response is to declare yourself betrothed to Stiff Richards because you can’t imagine your life without ‘em. Don’t believe me? Sort out your ears and get ‘State Of Mind’ in ‘em. Rock’n’roll as it’s supposed to be played. Green Splatter Vinyl. (Drunken Sailor Records)
  • Another Italian hardcore punk milestone getting its deserved F.O.A.D. treatment! Formed in Modena in the early ’80s with the aim of blending late ’70s punk with new waveish vibes, STIGMATHE gradually moved to hardcore punk territories in their own original way, combining the magic of the “furious years” of Italian HC with melodies and a desperate yet melancholic mood… This LP+CD set is their most complete discography ever made consisting of: – “Suoni puri dalla libertà” EP (1983) – “Lo sguardo dei morti” EP (1985) – tracks from “Raptus – Negazione e superamento” v.a. LP (1984) ..and their ultra-rare early demo (1983) for the first time on vinyl, showing the band’s early steps still with new wave contaminations and a solid Clash influence Plus a bonus CD containing the entire “Hardcore Vivo” live demo 1983. Includes a 16 page booklet with rare photos, flyers, biographical notes, fanzine excerpts, scans of the original releases and an extra 4 page full colored insert with never seen before photos!

    The debut LP from New York and Montreal’s Stigmatism (Featuring current and past members of Omegas, Lethal, S.H.I.T, Justice and Mati) is finally upon us! Stigmatism plays a style of music that pays tribute to the Rat Cage Records era of New York City punk and hardcore without sounding like an old and stale tribute band. With their debut Ignorance In Power, Stigmatism gives fans of the genre exactly what they want, 13 intense blasts filled with hooks, heavy breakdowns, and lyrics that call attention to the consistent unending rise of anti semitism, fascism, and police corruption currently plaguing New York City. 350 copies on black vinyl with a fold out A2 poster with amazing artwork from Tavi Gibson.

    Chaos and punishment battle for supremacy in the battlefields of Albion once again as the unyielding carnage of STINGRAY overloads your stereo and stains your brain. Putrefacting punk gnashing between metal stained flourishes of hateful competence and a touch of total rhythmic lobotomy. Tin Savage’s fantastic growled vocals trample his unmistakable London drawl across the five muscular and sickening tracks, the result of which is the musical child of ASID, ENT, SHOK, BGK, and a musical representation of two skeletons strutting through an alleyway on an early 80s CHUY-designed AGNOSTIC FRONT flyer. Boasting an A-Team of London punk minds, a real lust for metallic punk a la GBH and enough panache to make an ear piercing racket sound stylish: Stingray are simply on fucking fire.

  • Crashing dirty carnage somewhere between Neuroot, Ripcord, and Sacrilege lands in your lap with Stingray’s debut LP. Tin Savage barks his brutish textural east London drawl on top of unrefined metal-tinged hardcore punk veering between scandi wallop, jacked up amphetamine hardcore and jaw snapping mosh lusciously and confidently. Recorded by Jonah Falco at Fuzzbrain Studios, mixed and mastered by Chris Corry in the Paincave, Fortress Britain is a ruthless and unrelenting blunt instrument. Label: La Vida Es Un Mus Records
  • A compilation of studio output from the seminal Mid 80’s UK Anarcho Punk group, taken from two demos put out by Endangered Musik. Members of Stone the Crowz went on to form such killer bands like Axegrinder, Disgust and Mass. Gary Trueman of the alternative lifestle ezine, The Independent Voice, said of Protest Songs: “The vocals are classic London snot rock, so much so you can detect the direct influence of ironically butter loving John Lydon from back when he was Rotten. Where before this would be real shock rock, now it’s almost as acceptable as those postcards tourists love of that couple sporting mowhawks. ” (Overground Records)

    Formed in East London / Essex, a mutual love of Crass and all things anarcho first brought Trevor Speed and Trevor Delasalle together and the band was formed. After several false starts with different musicians they finally found what they were looking for in Steve Beatty (drums) and Matthew Sheath (bass) and very quickly they had a set and made their live debut supporting The Subhumans. In just under a year the band were in the studio and recorded their first six track demo in 1985, a second demo with a much angrier feel soon followed and racks from both demos ended up on vinyl: Mortarhates We Won't Be Your Fucking Poor, Endangered Musics Relying On Us EP and Punk Lives, Lets Slam released by Slam Records.

  • The LP „Wie lange Noch“, a milestone in German punk/hardcore history. Rolls like a tank over the corpses of his listeners. No compromises, pure aggression, a powerhouse thrash, quite different from the tracks from the „die Deutschenkommen“ sampler. . Wonderful! Another amazingly strong release from this period. The second LP includes a legendary concert on June 19, 1982 in the Wuppertal „Börse“ where LIEBIES, HASS and BLUTTAT also played. 16 brutal, rough live tracks in the usual Stosstrupp tradition. (Five of these songs are up to date unpublished). A poster and booklet with pictures plus an interview with the singer Alla is also included with the double LP. Label: Power It Up Records

  • Straitjacket with Freddie Wadling on bass and vocals was one of the first punk bands in Sweden. The first gig took place at a motorcycle club and at a gig shortly afterwards, the band was offered money by the organizer to leave the stage prematurely. The band split in the summer of 1978 and the members continued in bands such as Liket lever, The Leather Nun and Blue for Two. Straitjacket never had time to make an album, but after searching in the members’ stashes we are proud to finally release the mythical Gothenburg punks on LP more than 40 years later. The album consists of a collection of demos and a live recording from the last concert at the legendary club Errol’s in 1978. Protopunk in a true sense. (Busy Bee Production)
  • EUROPEAN PRESS. "This is one small attempt to make something of the bewildering history of these 'united states,' and the long age of exile that follows in the wake of this colonial project. An attempt to become better students of the land we occupy, and the long resistance of its stewards to cultural and ecological decimation. A vehicle for histories that won't sit still. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve listened to Age of Exile in the past few weeks. I got a preview before it came out and on the first listen I was hooked. My first impression was that it sounded like Kaleidoscope (with whom Straw Man Army shares members), but it’s reaching toward something more like the song-oriented anarcho punk of Zounds and Crisis. I’ve been playing this record into the ground in the subsequent weeks, though, and there’s so much more to hear than a simple “this kinda sounds like this” comparison. One thing Straw Man Army shares with Kaleidoscope is a sense of rhythmic sophistication and inventiveness" Sorry State (D4MT Labs Inc Neurosonic Research/2021)
  • STRAW MAN ARMY | sos | LP

    23.50 incl. tax
    2022 New York’s Straw Man Army return with ‘SOS’, the follow-up to their 2020 debut LP, ‘Age of Exile’. Emerging from the D4MT Labs group that also includes Kaleidoscope and Tower 7, Straw Man Army’s delicate musical touch, embrace of melody, and rapid-fire, clearly articulated vocals separate them from the louder and noisier end of New York’s fertile punk scene. While ‘Age of Exile’ examined the legacy of colonialism through the musical milieu of melodic anarcho-punk, ‘SOS’ turns its attention to the increasingly bleak prospects for the human race and planet earth. While Straw Man Army’s lyrical approach remains dense and thought provoking on ‘SOS’, their musical scope grows wider, encompassing ‘Age of Exile’s’ melodic take on anarcho, bleak and brooding post-punk, psychedelic instrumental excursions, and even the wistful pop of album highlight ‘Beware’. ‘SOS’ is everything Straw Man Army’s fans could have hoped for in a follow-up and so much more, cementing the band’s status as one of the most original, exciting, and important groups in the contemporary punk underground (Daniel Lupton) (La Vida Es Un Mus Records)
