• Recorded in an old hilltop villa in Álora, Spain, Sleep of Monsters II : Poison Garden, the long-awaited sophomore album of this unique Finnish band, sees the band  venture into even richer, more dramatic and hauntingly beautiful soundscapes, complete with strings and horns… and hooves. Think of Lee Hazlewood getting drunk with the Abba girls in a Metal bar, slurring some of the most spine-chilling, (mostly) true tales of human tragedy and the occult ever heard in rock’n’roll, and you’ll arrive at the moss-covered gates ofPoison Garden. It harkens back to the days when Rock albums were larger than life – deceivingly accessible but deviously deep, it is a trip through the dark recesses of Western history and psyche itself, of chtonic myths, bloody faery tales and forgotten archetypes, a treasure chest of nocturnal wonders and forbidden knowledge. The Sleep of Monsters – or SOM for short – released their debut album Produces Reasonin Finland in November 2013, entering the national Top 50. In November 2014, Svart Records licensed the album for the international underground, where it became a hot tip for those in the know, gathering rave reviews around the world. To celebrate its release, the band played Tavastia, Helsinki, in January 2015. When the band started their set with Ike performing the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, a violent electrical fire broke out in the shopping mall across the street. They promised not to do it again. SOM  marks the return of vocalist and lyricist Ike Vil, the morose mastermind behind the lauded death rockers and occult rock pioneers Babylon Whores. Vil teamed up with guitarist and main songwriter Sami Hassinen, formerly the guitarist of Blake, drummer Pätkä Rantala, who played on HIM’s million-selling debut, and keyboardist Janne Immonen, who has toured extensively with Waltari and Ajattara. The sound of SOM is completed by the trippy guitar of Uula Korhonen and the thumping bass of Mäihä, who also handles backing vocals, and last but not least, by the witchy voices of their own “Furies”: Hanna Wendelin, Nelli Saarikoski and Tarja Leskinen.

  • Long-lost punk classic reissued on limited edition slime-green 7”! Another in a long line of punk single re-issues from Damaged Goods, this time it's the 7" released on Toadstool Records by the band SLIME. Slime was SLIMY TOAD from Johnny Moped's solo adventure into a recording studio during a bit of downtime in Johnny Mopeds career in 1978. He was joined by mates Dave Tate on drums and Phil Sayers on vox and bass. They never got around to playing live as Moped duties took over once again. The single came out on Toadstool Records, Slimy's idea for a record label which was run by Chris Goodness who run a couple of record shops in Caterham, South London. It was recorded in Richmond studios where the legendary Cycledelic was also recorded. (Damaged Goods Records)

  • SOAKIE | soakie | LP

    17.00 incl. tax
    Debut seven track album from half Melbourne-half NYC Soakie. It’s total no nonsense blistering, fast and energetic hardcore with a vocalist that sounds like she has been chewing on glass everyday since birth. She has a real rasp and anger that is part Nick Blinko (Rudimentary Peni) and Part Vi Subversa (Poison Girls) but the music is totally pummelling and would sit perfectly for those that love pogo punk, Teddy And the Frat Girls, The Feederz and Good Throb in equal measures. Boys On Stage is a real standout with the lyric “There’re too many fucking boys on stage” sticking in your head from one listen. Soakie’s MLP was recorded by James Rumsey and mixed by Ian Teeple who also took care of the artwork. It comes with a A3 lyric insert to help you sing along to classics such a “Ditch The Rich” or “Nuke The Frats”. (La Vida Es Un Mus) https://lavidaesunmus.bandcamp.com/album/soakie
  • "Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes" builds on singer Mike Ness' twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of "Exile"-era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortion's anthemic songs, on "Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes" they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful albums of Ness' career. For fans of The Gaslight Anthem, Rancid, Bad Religion, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and Tiger Army. Vinyl version includes two additional tracks. (Epitaph Records)
  • In 1996 Social Distortion released their 5th album, White Light, White Heat, White Trash. The line-up featured a new drummer Chuck Biscuits (Black Flag/Danzig and many more). White Light, White Heat, White Trash was the last album with Dennis Danell on guitar (he sadly died in February 2000). The album received Social Distortion's highest ever chart position, entering the Billboard 200 album chart at #27. It also includes radio favourites "I Was Wrong", "When The Angels Sing" and a superb cover version of the Stones' "Under My Thumb". Stylistically, the album is harder and considered a return to their hardcore punk roots. Social Distortion is nothing less than a legend in the punk genre and still continues to receive worldwide respect and support.  Comes with insert.

  • Re-Issue of the stellar 1986 album from pioneering hardcore band, Social Unrest! Classic second album from one of the leading forces of the Bay Area early HC Thrash scene! Limited edition red vinyl. "Part of the lively Northern California punk rock scene of the '80s, Social Unrest were a hardcore outfit whose abundant energy and defiant anti-authoritarian stance set a standard followed by many of their peers. Social Unrest were formed in Hayward, California in 1980, with the initial lineup featuring Creetin K-os on vocals, Doug Logic and Danny Norwood on guitars, John Vollick on bass, and Mark Monti on drums. After making a name for themselves with their hard-hitting live shows, they released their first EP in 1981, a three-song 7" titled Making Room for Youth that was produced by East Bay Ray of the Dead Kennedys. The 7" was released by local indie label Infrared Records, while Social Unrest's next recording project would be released on their own Libertine Records imprint, the 12" EP Rat in a Maze, which was also produced by East Bay Ray. The band toured in support of the release, and also contributed the song "Their Mistakes" to the influential hardcore compilation Not So Quiet on the Western Front, which was compiled by the punk fanzine Maximum Rock N Roll in association with Alternative Tentacles Records. By the time Social Unrest released their first full-length album, 1985's SU-2000, the group had a new lineup; K-os, Logic, and Vollick were out, and vocalist Jason Honea, guitarist James Brogan, and bassist Ray Moses Vegas were in. A second album followed in 1986, Before the Fall, which was released by Libertine Records in the United States, while Konkurrel picked it up for distribution in Europe. Social Unrest launched another American tour after the album's release, and played Europe for the first time in 1987; that same year, they also appeared on the anti-apartheid benefit compilation Viva Umkhonto. In 1988, the band dropped album number three, Now and Forever, which introduced new bassist Ron Isa and included a guest appearance from original vocalist Creetin K-os. Ironically, Now and Forever proved to be the final studio album from Social Unrest's original run; the band broke up by the end of 1988, with the live album Mental Breakdown (recorded at a 1987 concert in Wolfsburg, Germany) issued as a farewell gesture." Jason Honea moved to Germany to pursue his education, and he formed a new band, Happy After Ever. Meanwhile, James Brogan joined the Bay Area pop-punk outfit Samiam. In 1995, Social Unrest's recorded catalog was reissued on a pair of compilations from New Red Archives, Complete Studio Recordings, Vol. 1 and Complete Studio Recordings, Vol. 2. In 1996, Danny Norwood and Mark Monti reunited Social Unrest, recording a new studio album, New Lows, which featured Creetin K-os and Jason Honea taking turns on bass and vocals, and was produced by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day. The group played occasional live shows, and released a 7" vinyl EP titled Social Unrest in 2009, with another 7", Songs for Sinners, following in 2010. In 2017, Social Unrest and New Red Archives teamed up to release a new vinyl edition of Before the Fall. (New Red Archives Records)

  • The final full-length release by this unholy trio from California. For those who have no idea, SPAZZ were the undisputed kings of west coast power-violence in the '90s. They took the sound pioneered by bands like CROSSED OUT and NO COMMENT and added a unique blend of self-referential humor to create a hilarious but brutal genre. While most power-violence is an amlagamation of slow moshy-parts mixed with blastbeat insanity, SPAZZ's final studio album (from 1998) forgoes a lot of the slow parts and gets straight to the killing. Mastered from the original recording. (625 Thrashcore Records))

  • "Οι Αθηναίοι Spinners μετράνε συνολικά 12 χρόνια ύπαρξης και μόλις έφτασαν στην τέταρτη κυκλοφορία τους με τίτλο “Operation:Breakout”. Το ύφος της μπάντας είναι έντονα επηρεασμένο από alternative/post hardcore heroes των 80’s/90’s όπως οι Husker Du, Fugazi με δόσεις από Dinosaur Jr. (για τους οποίους έχουν ανοίξει στο παρελθόν) αλλά και Refused. Τα 11 τραγούδια του δίσκου ακούγονται μονοκοπανιά και χαρακτηρίζονται από αμεσότητα και νεύρο. Στα αγαπημένα μπαίνουν το “Bleak” που σου κολλάει κατευθείαν, το “Endless Dive”, το “City’s Burning” που ξεκινάει με ένα riff που μοιάζει βγαλμένο από τους Mudhoney και συνεχίζει μελωδικά για να τελειώσει με το ίδιο ξέσπασμα, το αγριεμένο ομότιτλο του δίσκου και το ορχηστρικό “Johann Trollman’s Infinite Punch” που είναι ένα κιθαριστικό ξεσάλωμα σε συνδυασμό με σαξόφωνο. Ως ένα μικρό αρνητικό θα έλεγα πως τα μελωδικά φωνητικά χρειάζονται λίγη ακόμη βελτίωση, αλλά αυτό δεν αλλάζει το γεγονός ότι το “Operation: Breakout” είναι ένας δουλεμένος δίσκος που δείχνει μια μπάντα που ξέρει να βγάζει το επιθυμητό αποτέλεσμα, με ολιγόλεπτες και δυνατές συνθέσεις, σωστή παραγωγή και την DIY φιλοσοφία που χαρακτηρίζει τον ήχο που κινούνται. Αν τα ονόματα που είδατε στη πρώτη παράγραφο σας λένε κάτι, τότε αξίζει να δώσετε προσοχή τόσο στο δίσκο όσο και στις συναυλίες της μπάντας." Γιώργος Χούλλης (Rocking Athens) "Greek melodic post hardcore rockers SPINNERS draw their influences from late 70s post-punk, 80s underground hardcore, noise rock and 90s alternative rock, and their brand new LP “Operation: Breakout” is a a legitimate one of a kind amalgam of all these styles. The band have toured Greece and Europe extensively and have shared the stage with Dinosaur Jr, Obits, Membranes, Last Drive and numerous local bands, and after 12 years of developing this project, their story reminds us that in order to achieve something really noteworthy, we all could stand to be a bit more patient. I sincerely wish this to all the bands that are not encouraged to grow over time, but rather grab attention immediately." Idioteq https://spinnersathens.bandcamp.com/album/operation-breakout

    Black Flag were the pioneers of American Hardcore, and this is their blood-spattered story. Formed in Hermosa Beach, California, in 1978, for eight brutal years they made and played brilliant, ugly, no-holds-barred music on a self-appointed touring circuit of America’s clubs, squats, and community halls. They fought with everybody: the police, the record industry and even their own fans. They toured overseas on pennies a day and did it in beat-up trucks and vans. Spray Paint the Walls tells Black Flag’s story from the inside, drawing on exclusive interviews with the group’s members, their contemporaries, and the bands they inspired. It’s the story of Henry Rollins, and his journey from fan to iconic frontman. And it’s the story of Greg Ginn, who turned his electronics company into one of the world’s most influential independent record labels while leading Black Flag from punk’s three-chord frenzy into heavy metal and free-jazz. Featuring over 30 photos of the band from Glen E. Friedman, Edward Colver, and others. Praise: “Neither Greg Ginn nor Henry Rollins sat for interviews but their voices are included from earlier interviews, and more importantly Chuck Dukowski spoke to Chick—a first I believe. The story, laid out from the band’s earliest practices in 1976 to its end ten years later, makes a far more dramatic book than the usual shelf-fillers with their stretch to make the empty stories of various chart-toppers sound exciting and crucial and against the odds.” —Joe Carducci, formerly of SST Records “Here is an exhaustive prequel to, followed by a more balanced re-telling of, Rollins’ Get in the Van journal, chronicling Flag’s emergence in suburban Hermosa Beach, far from the trendy Hollywood scene (Germs, X, etc.) and how their ultra-harsh, hi-speed riffage sparked moshpit violence—initially fun, but soon aggravated by jocks and riot police. Greg Ginn, their aloof guitarist/slave-driver/ideologue dominates in absentia. Gradually, he fires everyone but Rollins, yet, his pan-American shoestring SST empire is relentlessly inspirational. A gory, gobsmacking read.” —Andrew Perry, MOJO “Chick’s analytical and in-depth biography of the progenitors of SoCal Hardcore builds up to a page-turning, scene-setting climax… Chick does a fine job of detailing the importance, influence and dedicated touring ethic of the band. Not to mention finally laying to rest the ludicrous but long-running Stalinesque punk rock opinion that of all Flag’s diverse career output, only the material before Rollins joined was of any value.” —Alex Burrows, Classic Rock “Chick’s well-researched and readable book immerses the reader in Black Flag’s world, recreating the violent yet creative atmosphere of the early Hardcore scene through new interviews with the band and their peers.”—Mat Croft, Record Collector About the Author: Stevie Chick has been writing about music for more than ten years, contributing to such titles as MOJO, The Guardian, Kerrang!, NME, Melody Maker and Careless Talk Costs Lives and editing underground rock magazine Loose Lips Sink Ships with photographer Steve Gullick.

  • Ya know that Big City Records compilation "Montreal New York Connection 85 Live" with all the wild looking cartoon punks on it? STIGMATISM is the sonic equivalent of that big fella on the cover with the mohawk rocking boots and braces whilst letting off and undoubtedly blood curdling howl doing key bumps of meth with that flag toting skinhead from the back of the "United Blood" EP in a real seedy alleyway at like, 3:41 AM on a Tuesday. STIGMATISM is an infatuation with and/or an astute observation of the more, dare I say, "early man" aspects of that first wave of NYHC. Featuring an ex OMEGA and a native New Yorker united in their love of this particular style of hardcore punk, this demo recording has been slapped onto some slabs of plastic that can be played loud on a phonograph or utilized as a level plane for those aforementioned servings of meth. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve adorned with a design by the illustrious Spoiler. (Beach Impediment Records)
