Young Governor "Firing Squad" 7" ltd vinyl

YOUNG GOVERNOR "Firing Squad" b/w "25 With a Bullet" 7" (PIR-039)

In a few short years, Ben Cook has carved out a sweet little niche for himself under the moniker "YOUNG GOVERNOR." The Guv's stamp is pretty much everywhere you look these days: he writes, he records, he slings wax as a budding record label mogul, and he still finds time to rock the guitar in FUCKED UP. Last year, he even landed a part in some teen idol flick, playing drums opposite Nick Jonas, and lived to write a song about it for his agent. Word is, the Guv is taking it to the stage in 2011 with a full band. No ETA yet, but we'll all be paying attention for sure. This single marks our fourth dance with Ben and it's a real corker. "Firing Squad" was on its way to a super-indie when we rescued it, while "25 With a Bullet" appears here in its third--and best, we think--form. Limited to 600 copies, black vinyl.

Black Lungs - Valley of the Dolls - 7" ltd yellow vinyl


2 new songs from Wade MacNeil of Alexisonfire fame. Sounds nothing like his debut album on Dine Alone or Alexsonfire which will please some and disappoint others. A real catchy punk sound with a good doze of aggro. Recorded by sir Jonah Falcon of Career Suicide and Fucked Up fame.

Total Abuse - S/T - LP



Limited purple vinyl. The highly anticipated self-titled album from TOTAL ABUSE is a monster hardcore punk classic. A recent feature in Skyscraper magazine described the album as follow: ‘Total Abuse's pungent blend of eighties thrash, grinding proto-grunge, and waves of both the new and no variety, distills every extreme punk subgenre of the last 30 years into a 25 minute barrage of shearing guitar noise and sonic annihilation.’

White Lungs - It's The Evil - LP ltd white vinyl

Limited WHITE vinyl After 3 critically acclaimed 7”s (two of which on DERANGED) and a slight line up change, Vancouver’s WHITE LUNG deliver one fantastic debut album. Mix the punk venom of some of the more notorious riot grrrl bands of the 90’s with the guitar noodling and tempo of UK post punk by way of John Reis and you get something pretty close to WHITE LUNG.

RED DONS - Fake Meets Failure - LP ltd green vinyl

LTD GREEN VINYL - The '00s or whatever you wanna call the last decade is over, and the results are in. Honorable independent publications and the ever growing "blogosphere" outdid themselves with Top 5, Top 10, and Top 100 lists of records that were issued in the last ten years. A common find among these lists was the seminal SO WHAT'S LEFT NOW? LP by Portland, Oregon's THE OBSERVERS released on VINYL WARNING in 2004. The dawn of a new decade is upon us and Doug Burns (Lead singer/songwriter/artist of THE OBSERVERS) has a new band, the RED DONS, featuring Daniel Hajji Husayn, Richard Joachim Preinesberger, and a rotating cast of characters including Justin Maurer (Clorox Girls), Will Kinser (Born/Dead), Zack Brooks (Soda Pop Kids), and Andy Foote (The Physical Challenge). Named after a group of Cambridge professors that operated as spies for the Soviet Union in WW2, the RED DONS continue where the OBSERVERS left off with added elements of Arabic themes in both the artwork and sound. After the much lauded release of their debut album and successfully touring the US, Canada, Europe, and Brazil, the RED DONS entered a Portland studio to record ten new tracks. On this new album FAKE MEETS FAILURE (DERANGED RECORDS / TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS), the band successfully develops their unique style even further. Coded lyrics about vagabond characters moving back and forth between the lines of the current climate of fear and suspicion that has been brought upon the USA by the war on terror. Again, consistent songwriting and a great production make this record stand out among the current competition. Combining TSOL-like vocals, SoCal punk rage, and the defiant melancholy of Pacific Northwesterners like the WIPERS this powerful release rises above the stack of contemporaries that take on the early 80s punk sound. No retro fashion hype, no flavor of the month. When this year turns, be sure to find this LP in the leading spots of Top 5, Top 10 and Top 100 lists of 2010. Though members are now scattered across the globe, the RED DONS will tour the USA in July 2010 and set sail for Europe in the spring of 2010. So What's Left Now? A hell of an aftermath to hell of a followup record, and one great, fierce force of a touring machine known as RED DONS .
