The Normals - Almost Ready/Hardcore 7" KBD

Legit repress of the single that (probably) best epitomizes the whole KBD genre. First time on 45 since '78, from the original masters on new label Last Laugh records, totally cult Killed By Death punk, one of the holy grail 7"s for many KBD punk collectors lovingly re issued.

This Louisiana punk outfit's history was as abbreviated as the rapid-fire catchiness captured on this first-ever compilation disc. The New Orleans-based foursome issued one single in 1978, "Almost Ready"/"Hardcore," built up a rabid fan base, and supported nearly all the big names (including the Police, the Ramones, and Talking Heads), yet never landed a record deal. The Normals tried to change their fortunes by moving to New York in May 1979, but they split up after failing to make any headway there. To pay off its debts, the band regrouped for an annual hometown gig from 1981-1984 (a gesture it resumed since re-forming in 1997). Your Punk Heritage compiles the "Almost Ready" single, an obscure, yet essential, U.S. punk-era benchmark; a clutch of demo sessions (some self-produced, with others abandoned after the band's funds ran out); and live tracks from the 1984 reunion show. Guitarists David Brewton and Charlie Hanson are the dominant writers, with a knack for thuggishly appealing hooks.. ~ Special thanx to - Ralph Heibutzki

The Zeros - Main Street Brat/Handgrenade Heart 7" KBD


The Zeros were an American punk rock band, formed in 1976 in Chula Vista, California. The band was composed of Javier Escovedo (younger brother of Alejandro Escovedo, older brother of Mario Escovedo of the Dragons) on vocals/guitar and Robert Lopez (later known as El Vez) on guitar, who were both attending Chula Vista High School; Hector Penalosa, (bass), and Baba Chenelle, (drums), who attended Sweetwater High School.

In 1977, The Zeros played their first major gig in Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theater. Opening the show was the first performance by The Germs, followed by The Zeros and then The Weirdos. The gig was promoted by Peter Case of The Nerves who later served as the frontman of The Breakaways and The Plimsouls. The Zeros' first single release, "Wimp" b/w "Don't Push Me Around" was released in 1977 on Bomp! Records.
In 1978, Penalosa left the band briefly to live and play in Los Angeles, and was replaced by Guy Lopez, Robert Lopez's brother. Soon after, Robert left to live in Los Angeles as well and his brother quit the Zeros. Penalosa rejoined the band and they continued as a trio, and eventually relocated to San Francisco. In March 1979, the UK music magazine, NME, reported that "punk riots had come to the U.S., when Los Angeles police broke up a Zeros' gig at Elks Hall."[1] In 1980, the band recorded a new single, including the songs "They Say That (Everything's Alright)," "Girl on the Block" and "Getting Nowhere Fast." After more touring that led to Austin, Texas and New York, the band fizzled out.
The band is infamous for playing an entire set consisting of 8 replays of "Beat Your Heart Out" in San Francisco.
More recently, the Zeros reunited to tour in Spain in early 2007. All four members reunited again for a short West Coast tour that began in San Diego in June 2009. In October 2010, the Zeros embarked on a short U.S. tour of the East Coast.

Nux Vomica - Asleep in the Ashes 2xLP ltd coloured vinyl

Portland’s NUX VOMICA return with their second full-length album on Aborted Society, “Asleep in the Ashes.” Constantly defying easy classification, NUX VOMICA has persistently challenged and redefined the constructs of DIY punk since their inception in 2003, and this release is certainly testament to that. Merging elements of crust, thrash metal, sludge, doom, psychedelia and post-rock, Asleep in the Ashes is a 60-minute long epic that weaves in and out of genres with equal amounts of ferocity and complexity.

Striking full-color cover art by Jason Angst. Special color vinyl first pressing includes full color gatefold jacket, black paper inner sleeves, and two brilliant colors of vinyl for both records.
Track Listing:
1. Where Minds Can’t Grow
2. The Invasion
3. The Discussants
4. Walk Through the Ashes
5. Corpses with Egos
6. Kaumaha

Slang/World Burns To Death - 7" ltd white vinyl


Limited White vinyl for mailorder. 350 copies Pressed.
Marking the 2010 summer U.S. tour of Austin, Texas's WORLD BURNS TO DEATH and Sapporo, Japan's veteran hardcore band SLANG, this EP combines two guitar driven blasts of hardcore fury. SLANG have existed for over twenty years evolving between Classic Japanese fast hardcore and downbeat NYHC influences, their track " Our Grey Earth" rampages on SLANG's own path, incorporating the evolution of influences into a fast assault of hardcore that winds to a devastating guitar driven breakdown. WORLD BURNS TO DEATH similarly continue to evolve from caustic bursts of corrosive thrashing to a tempered attack stitched by a melodic guitar riff and glued solid with torrential drum bashing, volatile guitar blasts and harsh vocals, ensuring their track " Babylon Endures" continues their trademark sheer intensity. Limited Red Vinyl copies for Stores and distro only are limited to 650.
