• "YOUTH YOUTH YOUTH were arguably the best band in Canadian hardcore. Most people credit DOA with this title but that was just because they were around longer. YOUTH YOUTH YOUTH had very few releases but every song on their releases were great." Equalizing Distort This record combines the band's only release, an 12' EP entitled "Sin", and two of its early demos from 1982 and 1983. A1 through A6 are demo 1, A7 to A9 are from demo 2, both sessions recorded and produced @ Accusonic, Toronto and remixed in Summer 1989 @ Eastern Sound. Side B is the "Sin" 12" EP from 1983, recorded in Summer 1983 @ Comfort Sound, Toronto, Ontario. (Fan Club)

The band is still touring and are set to release a new album in 2017. Highly influential Canadian prog. metal quartet continue to hone their distinctive blend of experimental speed-infused sci-fi to great effect on album number four. This definitive issue of Voivod's fourth album is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band. The album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has replicated the original release. (Noise– NOISELP017)
  • Raised on a heavy dosage of good ol' American rock and roll - of both the 1950s (Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Chuck Berry) and 1970s varieties (The MC5, The Stooges, The Velvets) - these 4 youngsters from working class Hamilton, in Southern Ontario, set their town, and soon after all of Canada, ablaze in the late 1970s with their raucous live act. Drawing their name from The Flamin' Groovies classic 1971 LP, Teenage Head formed in 1975 when all the members were classmates together at Westdale High School. After a few years of honing their chops and legendary live show, this LP, their debut album was released in 1979. A ripping mix of punk attitude and 50s rock riffs, Teenage Head are not interested in politics or philosophy: this is just young, loud, and dumb punk rock - the way it should be. Though their next album would make them stars across Canada with two hit singles, this album is their finest and most urgent recording. (Barnyard Records/Unofficial Release)

    This is a cult for the early death/thrash metal movement and a great album. In Canada there was another band that was doing more or less the same Slaughter music in the same period, and that band was Sacrifice. They were the precursors in that beautiful country of a genre that was developing worldwide with great bands such as Death, Possessed, Kreator, Sodom, Bathory, Sepultura, Sarcofago and many others. Their goal was to bring the classic violent thrash metal to another level in brutality and heaviness. The experiment was achieved here, without forgetting the main genre it comes from. More or less 30 minutes to show all their abilities in destroying everything with panzer drums and fast guitars. Their distortion was already innovative and pure death metal with a fuzz, heavy as hell, sound. The vocals were half way between Celtic Frost down tone and the classic thrash metal ones. Recorded on February 9th, 1986 at Futuresound, Toronto. High Roller Records, reissue 2021, swamp green/ black splatter vinyl, ltd 300, original mix + bonus track, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, lyric sheet printed on uncoated paper, poster, mastered by Patrick W.

  • A brief but dense dose of simply hulking intense turmoil. Subtle terminology is trite, so to get to the point: S.H.I.T., the LP, blurs by in under twenty minutes of thrashing hardcore gristle. Gone are the tell-tale training wheels of delayed vocals and endless layers of feedback, here now are the tighter louder songs we'd hoped S.H.I.T. would write. A piercing musical rallying cry for the listless and ever approaching bulldoze march of the future, wrapped in cellophane transfers of melted early hardcore and the best of the last decade's fresh take on simplicity and power. What do you Stand for? comes housed in a sleeve designed by legendary hc punk outsider and former S.H.I.T. designer, Jaybo. The intricately illustrated hellish image was produced with bleach onto a massive bedsheet, though the entire package is wrapped in a self censored outer sleeve, seemingly in the service of protecting the purchaser's dignity. Additional design by Ryan Tong. (La Vida Es Un Mus Records/ Iron Lung Records)

    Finally! "Hidden In Eternity" and "Eraser III" are put to the perfect format and classed up nicely by some of the finest design work Ryan Tong has ever done. Taking the path of 2018's bulldozing What Do You Stand For? LP, S.H.I.T. crank out two tracks of hyped-up hardcore bombfall with the signature snarl that you've come to know and love. Perfect music. Written and performed by S.H.I.T. Recorded by Dylan Frankland at Palace Studios. Mixing and additional recording by Jonah Falco. Mastered by Arthur Rizk. Artwork by Ryan Tong. European version available through La Vida Es Un Mus. North American version available through Iron Lung Records. (La Vida Es Un Mus Records)
  • Since forming in Manitoba in 1986, Propagandhi have brought an emphatic anti-fascist message to their music. Along with addressing a number of personal losses suffered in recent years, Victory Lap, the band's first full-length since 2012's Failed States, finds the band facing a landscape in which fascism is—among a certain crowd—suddenly trendy. Victory Lap also marks Propagandhi’s first album with new guitarist Sulynn Hago, who joins Samolesky, frontman Chris Hannah, and bassist Todd Kowalski. Replacing longtime guitarist David Guillas (who appears on several tracks on Victory Lap), Hago was added to the lineup after Propagandhi put out a call for audition tapes and received over 400 responses.

  • Back in May 2019, Vancouver trio Corner Boys released their sole album… and promptly split a few months later. In retrospect, they couldn’t have known that the album’s title (‘Waiting For 2020’) would soon seem grimly ironic - and we all know why, right? No reason to go over all that shit again. But while the past two years have at least seen drummer/songwriter Patrick McEachnie staying active across two essential records with hardcore heroes Chain Whip, lockdown saw him switching roles. Basically, he bought a guitar and made an excellent record all on his lonesome, and as followers of his other projects will have come to expect, it’s fucking excellent. ‘Glad To Be Forgotten’ is the debut album by Pack Rat - in some ways you can see some level of crossover with Corner Boys in its manic energy and dedication to hooks (cuts like ‘Next Time Hit Me’ and ‘My Own Reality’ are so damn catchy, you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve already been listening to ‘em on repeat for the past 20 years). Familiar reference points show up (the melodies of the Pointed Sticks; the garage-slanted rifferama of Rudi or The Undertones) while a tinny budget synth keeps things ticking along nicely, just to remind you that this is a homespun DIY project. But honestly, this has the feel of a fully fleshed-out project and leaves you desperate for another fix of its sweet’n’sour tang. For anyone who loves the collision point between ‘New Rose’, powerpop sunshine and sheer rock’n’roll exuberance, this is essential. For everyone else, this is surely the gateway to all of that good stuff. You want to hear the tunes that’ll star on future generations’ equivalents to the Killed By Death comps? That’ll set your pulse soaring and your pogo muscles into overdrive? That’ll remind you of why this punk rock business still feels worth dedicating your life to, even after all this time? Hey, Pack Rat’s got ‘em. Now do your part. Will Fitzpatrick. (Drunken Sailor Records)

  • Official reissue this Canadian hardcore classic, originally released in 1986. Negative Gain was founded in Toronto, Ontario by Peter Warner who wrote all of the lyrics and provided rehearsal space in his basement. Filling out the lineup was Grant C. Slavin on guitar, Steve Currie on bass, and Andrew Mosely on drums. All members were in their mid-teens at the time. Their influences included Minor Threat, Millions of Dead Cops, the Misfits, and the Dead Kennedys, as well as local TO bands Direct Action and Sudden Impact. Negative Gain got their first break in '83 when we were asked by local Toronto promoter Jill Heath to open for Jodie Fosters Army at the city's legendary punk club The Turning Point. After the show Pete and Grant went skateboarding with JFA. The evening was documented in a subsequent issue of Thrasher as JFA's guitarist Don Pendelton was writing a column for the rag documenting their tour. Other memorable Negative Gain gigs around this time include warming up for bands like the Circle Jerks, Gang Green, the Descendents and 7 Seconds. The young thrash band soon went from listening to their favorite bands' records on a daily basis to hanging out with them backstage and stealing their beer rider! More help from Jill Heath came when the promoter sent Negative Gain's 1985 demo tape, Attack of the Killer Bears, to Pushead for review. Pushead evidently like the tape so much that he offered to release a full-length LP for the band. Negative Gain recorded their album in Oakville, Ontario in about five hours on a Saturday afternoon, as studio time was limited to what the young band could afford to spend on the recording. The session was produced by Brian Taylor of the Toronto band Youth Youth Youth. Sadly, Pete Warner committed suicide not too long after the recording was completed, and never lived to see its release. His last gig with the band was with Toronto's Bunchofuckingoofs. Negative Gain continued on as a three-piece for about two more years, before splitting in the late 1980s. The record comes with fold out inlay with photos and lyric sheet and extra poster of first and last side of the record. (Rest In Punk Records)

  • Created on the western edges of the infinite plains and prairies of coldest Canada, Edmonton, Alberta's HOME FRONT dance freely and madly along the edges of time and create their own moment amongst the revered and long frozen reserves of THE CURE, SUICIDE, ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, "Second Empire Justice" era BLITZ, and NEW ORDER. A record bubbling over with analog synth, guitar loops, slammed 808 drums, and anthemic vocal pushes tugging at the great moment in-between the “death” of punk and the “birth” of new wave, pulling fresh sounds into their punk roots and shoving a studded leather jacket around a silk robe. Justice, violence, doubt and uncertainty a la Gary Numan narrating a Warren Miller Extreme Ski Special on the set of TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA: this is HOME FRONT. (La Vida Es Un Ms Records)
  • THIS IS A PRE-ORDER! YOUR RECORD WILL SHIP ON OR AROUND 15.03.23, THANKS! "A couple years ago my consigliere Mr @jonahjonahfalco played me a track he was working on, and I immediately fell in love with its Pet Shop Boys style electronics tom-toms and their late Blitz general vibe. Down the pub and upon some further discussion I learnt the band was Edmonton’s @arewenothomefront , and as it happened I already knew @noproblempunx We got talking and a few months later ‘Think Of The Lie” 12” came out. I loved it and so did a lot of people it seems. Then the band came and played two fantastic shows @staticshockrecords and I finally met Mr @wegotemboys and the rest of the band which as it happened were the sweetest bunch. By then we have been in touch regularly and I can say, without a doubt, that working with them has been an incredible experience, I want to think we all have learnt a lot from each other and became great friends on the way. Today is the day their second record gets announced and I truly hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It is a very special record, hard to pinpoint but a record which, at least in this house, gets played over and over. I hope you dig it." Paco “Enormous full length debut from Home Front who have managed to fix truth to the beautiful and borderline mythical threadneedle moment in which punk, new wave, pop, indie and rock and roll all descend upon a single source. We may have only dreamed that Tears for Fears might have been going to see GBH at the weekend or that Annie Lennox spent her evening sewing Crass patches to her Wrangler Blue Bell jacket, but Home Front have rang the dinner triangle for us all to feast. High moments of perfectly patinated synth brilliance, tender new wave considerations, punk anthems that could fill the biggest stadium, and fiery hooks that could warm the coldest cynic. The Champagne, the gluebag, the boots, and the eyeliner, GAMES OF POWER clutches to it all. GAMES OF POWER lives inside a crystal clear recording by long time friend and Edmonton wizard Nik Kozub, bringing Home Front’s follow up to “Think of The Lie” to euphoric heights and gritty lows. Produced again by Jonah Falco remotely and between sub zero 10 kilometer runs in Edmonton in late February with co-production by Nik Kozub, Home Front have put their best mirror shined boot forward."

    Making tons of noise up north (and not just with the trombone) is Montreal's FAZE. Playing a version of punk that is equally married with psych rock, these songs drone, but there is no falter in the step them. Like a dune buggy slowly losing control, the pace is relentless. Culling elements of punk honed by fellow canadians, S.H.I.T. and more astronomical influences like Destruction Unit. Basically you have to be on drugs to fully understand this. 500 7 inches with 100 on greyish purple. (11PM Records)
  • Dekoder’s second LP is a 6-song mid-tempo combo of old school gothic rock, anarcho-punk and plain old ’77 style punk, influenced by the more thoughtful side of the punk musical spectrum (more on the Penetration side of things than, say, the Blatz side of things). As with a lot of the female-fronted bands working in this contemporary peace punk-meets-goth milieu, the stand-out quality here are the vocals. The vocal talents of bands like Pleasure Leftists, Blue Cross (who are label mates with Dekoder), and Masquerade comprise one of the more noteworthy aspects of all this Epic postpunk/anarcho-goth revivalist stuff. “Flowers to Blossom” is an intelligent and earnest marriage of the personal themes of liberation evinced by such past bands as the Poison Girls and Rubella Ballet combined with the musical approach of groups like early Siouxsie and the Banshees, Red Scare, later Superheroines, and Legal Weapon. It’s a combo that works quite well. "Interestingly, drummer David Earles (Dekoder, Dethfox) has compiled a book of travel essays and photography from a recent trip he made to North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. The book's called Dragging for Bodies and is an interesting peek into one society Americans aren't supposed to visit (N. Korea) and other places that are still recovering the war in Indo-China that devastated those countries in the 1960s and 70s. I have a copy of this book and it's a fascinating read." -Oliver Sheppard(Cvlt Nation) (Chaos Rural Records)

    Dayglo's "Feed Us A Fetus" is their second full-length album, originally released in 1986. This is hands-down, the best Canadian punk record to emerge from the 80's!!

Many of their classic punk anthems are captured on this vinyl and Unrest Records is the sixth label to release the album over the years, which is a testament to what a classic it really is.
