• Heavy, heavy tunes! Studio One instrumentals are the foundation of Reggae. These rhythm tracks became the basis for all Dancehall as countless artists and producers re-versioned these classic Studio One instrumentals. Comes as Triple LP. REVIEWS: " sheer volume of output from Studio One is astonishing, combined with the fact that the quality of the recordings never seem to diminish. These instrumentals touch on ska, rocksteady, dub, and begin to hint at the reggae sound of the late '70s. Each instrumental is perfect and has the feel that it could hardly be improved upon. Soul Jazz has once again put together a wonderfully rounded collection of music from Studio One". All Music "I think if a nuclear family could have a soundtrack, ours would be the Soul Jazz comp Studio One: Scorcher. I wouldn't say it's the best record ever made, but if I heard it every single day for the rest of my life, I'd be 100% cool with it." DJ "Compilation of essential & rare Studio One instrumentals" Hard Wax "Studio One Scorcher is the latest of these, collecting instrumental tracks spanning the years from the late-'60s rocksteady vogue through the onset of dancehall and digital rhythms in the early 80s featuring The Skatalites, trombonist Don Drummond, Pablove Black and others." Billboard

  • Originally available only on cassette in 1988 as the second release from one of the most active hardcore punk labels in Poland, QQRYQ. This release was unique. It was the only international compilation to document the punk scene from the Warsaw Pact bloc in the 1980's. There were substantial difficulties getting music and publications from neighboring countries, and more so from western Europe than from the east of Europe due to harsh border control, censorship, and repression. For that reason, this compilation is an important and unique document from the era. Recordings and zines were often smuggled across borders, and the risk for doing so was real, as evidenced by the complete confiscation of the "Inside" zine and the arrest of Micha from Namenlos at the Polish/East German border. Establishing contact between Piotr Pietia Wierzbicki of QQRYQ and Herne Pietzker, who was a main influencer in the east Berlin scene, resulted in an exchange of information, reports with the GDR being published in the “QQRYQ” fanzine, and a stronger connection between people in east Berlin and Warsaw. In addition, Polish bands began to get invited to perform in Germany and vice versa. The legacy of this cooperation, one which started over thirty years ago, is still used by new generations of punk bands. A similar situation occurred with the Hungarian scene, where the band Trottel was a frequent guest at shows in Poland. The compilation "We are the flowers in the red zone" contains recordings of bands from East Germany, Hungary and Poland and is marked as a “vol.1”. The second part of the sampler was supposed to contain recordings from other countries of the Eastern Bloc, but this never happened. The bands included in this first compilation are ANDREA’S AUSLAUF, WARTBURGS FÜR WALTER and the combined forces of NAMENLOS and KEIN TALENT from East Germany (recorded live on their illegal tour in Poland 1987, organised by QQRYQ). The Hungarian scene was represented by DIE TROTTEL and BIZTONSAGI TANACS, while Poland offered recordings of the bands DEZERTER, TRYBUNA BRUDU, and A.P.S.F. (i.e. ANTI-POLISH SCIENCE FICTION). The vinyl reissue of the compilation contains the full version of the recordings (some of the tapes were cut off), and two booklets: the first with liner notes from Pietia and an interview with him from the book "Warschauer Punk Pact" by Alexander Pehlemann, tour stories about Polish shows from the German bands Namenlos and Wartburgs Für Walter, and reprints of East German reports from “QQRYQ” zine along with archival photos. Booklet # 2 is a faithful reproduction of the "Inside" # 1 zine from East Berlin, which was printed in Warsaw and smuggled across borders, where the entire edition was confiscated by the police and many years later exactly one and only one copy was found in the files of the Stasi. On the occasion of the anniversary of the fall of the Eastern Bloc, this is a great opportunity to recall how the cooperation inside the "Happy Eastern Bloc" looked like as we present raw punk recordings created behind the Iron Curtain from this important period. This is coming out as a co-release / cooperation between Warsaw Pact Records (Poland), Edition Iron Curtain Radio (a division of Major Label), Zonic (Germany) and Trottel Records (Hungary). https://warsawpact.bandcamp.com/album/we-are-the-flowers-in-the-red-zone-lp
  • Here it is at last. A legit re press of this Finnish hardcore classic from 1984. This is repressed under license by Power It Up records of Germany with North American distribution by Havoc. I know that comps get a bad rap these days as random assemblies of bands "throwaway tracks". You have to put yourself back in time to the good old days of 1984 when hardcore was still a new, raw and urgent form of music. At that time comps made a lot of sense to document the explosive new scene and most bands chose their BEST songs to put on a comp rather than their worst. Yalta Hi Life was originally released by Finland's Barrabas records in 1984. Featured are three to eight tracks each by Terveet Kadet, Varaus, Aparat, Kaaos, Aivoproteesi and KTMK. I'm particularly fond of this style of comp because you get about a 7" worth of material from each of the six bands. The TK and Kaaos songs are raging, and most people will probably buy this because those bands are pretty well known. KTMK is at their most hardcore/punk sounding on this release. Varaus can't be touched on any format. Aparat is not so well known, but still tear it up. And Aivoproteesi are really good and pretty unknown outside Finland as I think this material is their only release. A really solid comp start to finish if you are a die hard or just getting into 80's Finnish hardcore. (Power It Up Records)

    In 1985, VERBAL ABUSE recorded this seminal album after moving from Texas to San Francisco a few years prior much like their peers in D.R.I., living on a diet supplied by soup kitchens and whatever else they could get their hands on, epitomizing the term hardcore. "just an american band" is hardcore at its most raw and primal, a testament to a time when to be hardcore, you had to live hardcore. The band were a soundtrack to a scene still in it’s infancy, a scene that rallied and stood firm against the outside world. Also contains large booklet with lyrics, photos, and commentary from the band. (Beer City Records)

  • Classic Rhode Island hardcore band Verbal Assault's 1987 masterpiece finally re-issued and remastered by Nick Townsend from Townsend Mastering (drummer for Fireburn/ Deadbeat). Originally released in 1987 Verbal Assault bridged the gap between "heavy" hardcore and "smart" hardcore playing extensively with everyone from Agnostic Front to Fugazi. Lyrically "Trial" hit on personal but also socio/political themes while never letting up musically. This is the first time since it's original release 31 years ago its been re-issued.

    Despite only being active for a few years in the mid-1980s, Vex left a huge legacy in underground circles for their affecting brand of anarcho-punk. Until now, it was almost impossible to find an original copy of their essential Sanctuary 12-inch on Fight Back Records, let alone their scant other recordings. Originally released on Fight Back Licensed by Cherry Red Music. Limited on 500 copies! Anarcho punk band, hailed from London, United Kingdom. Soundwise the band was more inspired by Killing Joke or UK Decay than by most other anarchopunk bands like CRASS or Conflict for instance. (Bomb-All Records)
  • "Surprise! Stockholm’s finest, Viagra Boys are back with an incredible EP. They’ve also announced some tour dates for November too. One of them being here in Manchester the day after my birthday. Feel free to get me a ticket, I won’t be mad. For now, let’s get into this EP. Common Sense consists of 4 songs that will unapologetically annihilate you. Sebastian’s voice never sounded better, and that sax will always be a welcomed sound on a Viagra Boys song. The title track feels like Sebastian having a word with himself, but at the same time you can think of about 5 people this song could be applicable to. We all know someone who may go too far and is a little too self-destructive. The way in which Sebastian sings this is like someone who is completely wired at 4am and is having a heart to heart with themselves. It’s a deep song, and although the humour is there it is much more subtle. It is a heavy song, lyrically and it really does hit you. Lick The Bag where oh where do we even start with this. It’s a rebellious song, and you can completely imagine everyone going batshit to this at their shows. There is something so sordid and beautifully depraved about this, and fellow shrimps will be obsessed with this. Viagra Boys are an exciting band, and even that doesn’t do them justice. Their cult-like following and dedication from the fans is truly beautiful. Lick The Bag will hopefully become everything Sports has become. An iconic song for our generation. The thing is, Viagra Boys just put out incredible music and their songs just mess with your mind. That’s part of the charm. Everything about what they do just corrupts your mind, and you probably wouldn’t have it any other way. I love everything about their slick style, and how they just do it their way. It is truly unlike anything else, and this new EP is a perfect demonstration of this." Olivia https://www.50thirdand3rd.com (Year0001)

  • VICTIMS | sirens | LP

    18.00 incl. tax
    Tankcrimes will proudly deliver the brand new LP from long-running Stockholm hardcore crust warriors, VICTIMS, with the April release of the band’s sixth album, Sirens. In a coordinated attack with the LP’s impending release, the band will return to North America preceding the street date of Sirens, with a string of West Coast dates beginning in late March. Surging with a dozen boiling new anthems, VICTIMS delivers their first full-length since 2011’s acclaimed A Dissident LP, the band continuing to bridge slightly new flourishes into their exceptionally tried-and-trusted attack. With equal parts morose and triumphant d-beat fury, Sirens was recorded at Studio Gutterview by Fred Estby (Dismember, At The Gates, Refused) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Iron Reagan, Nails, Integrity), and features the expected white-knuckled surges of angst as well as some more expansive elements throughout the album, all enshrouded in a barbed-wire vocal delivery, packed with unstoppable gang-chants and inescapable hooks.

  • Grindcore from Athens. https://vilespecies.bandcamp.com/album/vile-species (Self Released/2020)
  • Scorched Earth marks the long awaited debut LP from the UK’s ultimate misfit squad, Vile Spirit. After well loved demo and promo tapes, Scorched Earth marks a major step up in terms of musical landscape and craft as members have sharpened their teeth touring Europe and being active members of the UK hardcore punk scene. Somehow they have managed to sew together influences such as United Mutation, Integrity and Black Metal into a noisy mass of hard as hell tunes with fuzzed out guitars burning your ear drums whilst being punched to death by relentlessly rolling drums excelling at unpredictable rhythmical directions. Meanwhile mid-tempo songs like Going Home march along, snarling in the darkness, creating an atmospheric backdrop for those who prefer to awaken at night. Vocalist Ben summons a cynical view of the world, conjuring tales of the survival of mankind and a contempt for the world. Bursting onto the UK hardcore punk scene three years ago the members have never ceased to play in and create numerous bands such as Gutter Knife, Saliva, and Chubby and the Gang. They originally formed part of the new generation of Brighton punks re-energising the scene there alongside bands like State Funeral, Never and label mates Imposter, whilst members finished high school or started University. Joining the band on second guitar is Rory O’Neill, singer of Imposter, and responsible for the artwork on Scorched Earth. Enjoy, and be damned upon the scorched Earth. Recorded and mixed by James Atkinson at The Stationhouse Mastered by Will Killingsworth Artwork by Rory O'Neill. (Quality Control Records)

Soon after, Tom relocated to Leeds to assemble a full band with an end result that finds the lads playing straight-edge, hardcore with an obvious oi-punk influence.

  • VOIVOD | katorz | CD

    8.00 incl. tax
    Katorz is the 11th Voivod studio album and 14th overall release. It was conceived in a period of inspiration. The touring that followed 2003's self-titled Voivod album (including a successful Ozzfest stint) kicked the band's momentum up another notch. With the lineup firmly settled Denis Piggy D'Amour, Michel Away Langevin, Denis Snake Belanger and Jason Jasonic Newsted they began writing of one mind and prepared to take their sound to the next level. A wealth of material was conceived, too much for one album, but they eventually settled on 10 songs that would stand as their 11th album. The fine-tuning began. But early in the process, tragedy struck. Guitarist and main riff-constructor Piggy was struck down with colon cancer. Throughout the middle of 2005, the music took a back seat while band members and friends hoped and waited for him to beat the disease. By late August of that year, Piggy succumbed to the illness and passed away. The metal world mourned with Piggy's band members and family. In the ultimate tribute to his memory, the rest of Voivod finished the recordings using a wealth of demos the guitarist left behind. In his final days he gave longtime cohort Away directions where to find his demos, expressing his wishes that the band finish the album in his absence. Voivod would carry on in Piggy's memory, recording with producer Glen Robinson(a name Voivod fans will recognize from the Nothingface era) and emerging triumphant with Katorz. It is a fitting tribute to Piggy's talent and a respectful epitaph of the man's vision. During the recording, Voivod hinted that more experimentation would go into Katorz than the previous album. While this is clear, the band didn't experiment for its own sake and there are no overzealous attempts to recapture the vibe of any previous album. They have always pushed defiantly forward, and Katorz adds new aspects and colors to their diverse discography. Odd sounds, strange rhythms, cosmic segues and unsettling atmospheres exist in the margins, while direct attacks comprise the bulk of the album. Diminished, crippled chords fly from Piggy's fingers. His strange 6-string shapes prove he's the only man to ever find the X-sharp and Z-flat chords on a guitar. Drums roll and tumble like a churning machine as Away makes perfect sense of Piggy's unique configurations. Snake sneers and spits in his inimitable style as Jason's rumbling bass lines boast fat, crunchy tones that pierce their own melodies through the din. If defiant opener The Getaway and catchy mother The X-Stream are direct stabs of Voivod at their most punk, then the paranoid Mr. Clean, the heavy shifting slabs of Dognation and left-of-center Polaroids reveal the more difficult, mysterious aspects of their sound. And if people interpret hints of new-wave underlying the weird Silly Clones , it wouldn't be the first time Voivod confused or confounded. Sounds are heavy but punchy, raw and frazzled but typically focused and always mesmerizing. Voivod and The End Records are proud to present Katorz: a triumph in the face of tragedy. We all think Piggy would be proud. (Nuclear Blast Records)        
  • Earmark Records press from an absolute thrash metal classic originally from 1987. Please note these copies do not have the sticker this press originally had. Few copies from an old warehouse. Voivod are a Canadian heavy metal band from Quebec that formed in 1982. They started out as a speed metal band, while adding a mix of progressive and thrash metal to create their own unique style. They were one of the first thrash bands from Canada to receive international acclaim. The band have releasedeleven studio albums and a number of EPs, live albums, demos and DVDs. The band is still touring and are set to release a new album in 2017. The bands' third full album perfectly reinforces their image of a post-apocalyptic wasteland set against a thrashing-punk-speed-metal soundscape. It was released on Noise Records in 1987. This definitive re-issue of VOIVOD's Killing Technology is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band. (Earmark Records)
  • Wall Breaker returns this fall with a 12“ release on Refuse Records. "Democracy Dies" picks up where 2017's Demo left off - fast, no bullshit hardcore punk with some mosh crunch thrown in for good measure. Here's twelve pissed-off tracks recalling east coast bands from Agnostic Front to SSD to Life's Blood, as well as a healthy nod to the speed and urgency of early 00s thrashcore. The lyrics delve into current issues plaguing the western world from racism to xenophobia to violence and war, as well as depression, mental health and self-loathing.

    The new full length album from the awesome punkers War On Women, battering beats, heavy riffs and plenty of classic punk/rock vibes. When they were starting out, Baltimore’s War On Women defined their sound as “Bikini Kill meets early Metallica.” That seems like an untenable combination — raw and impassioned and untrained feminist fire on one side, virtuosic power-fantasy speed-freakery on the other. It’s like a chef saying that her latest dish is ice cream meets chicken korma. It’s not that those two things are opposed. They’re both great, and it’s very easy to love both of them. It’s just hard to imagine them being great together. But on Capture The Flag, their second album, War On Women pull it off. And they make it sound immediate and instinctive, as if those two strains always made sense together. And even more than that, the combination sounds like something that the current cultural moment needs. (Bridge 9 Records) https://waronwomen.bandcamp.com/album/capture-the-flag
