E.A.T.E.R.Ernst And The Edsholm Rebels – Doomsday Troops - 5-Spårs E.P.
Crucial re issue of this early 80's Swedish HC punk classic. Originally released in 1983 this one rides the line between raw Swedish HC like Anti Cimex and more straight forwared Punk bands like Bristles, or Asta Kask. The title track is a hardcore rager, with the songs on the slip being a bit more in the UK Punk mold.
Managed to get a few copies of these from the band and my good friend Ake Kallback.
The band will be touring Japan in the winter and hope to come to the UK early next year.

Violent Party - Poison Mixers - 12"
Violent Party was formed in the summer of 2010. The band is named after the old Japanese label that released bands like Gai, Confuse, and Gess in the early/mid 1980's.
Violent Party is a hardcorepunk band that began during 2010 in Lynchburg, Virginia. The band currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
New release on IMMINENT DESTRUCTION RECORDS!!
Co-released with KONTON CRASHER RECORDS from USA!
8 tracks of distorted chaos punk from VIOLENT PARTY.
This is the bands 4th release after 3 previous 7" EP's and is their first full length 12". This is undoubtedly the bands best material to date and unleashes a wave of sonic hate drenched hardcore to the unsuspecting listener.
Drawing influence from Japanese noise punks CONFUSE and STAGNATION in both style and intensity, this is the musical equivalent of electro-shock treatment!
300 copies pressed on black vinyl, split between both labels each side of the pond.
Comes with lyric insert.

Weekend Nachos - Unforgivable - LP very limited opaque green vinyl/100
Weekend Nachos feature members of Harms Way and are once again mixing the powerviolence of Infest and Crossed Out with burly metallic guitars and masterful riffage, totaling twelve tracks on "Unforgivable."
Brutal as FUCK 2nd LP from my fave Chicago band. The band is now back with Andrew who was their guitarist on the 'Torture' EP but don't think for a second the band has reverted back to the sounds of that record. On this 2nd full length record the band still has some of that unique mix of NYHC, YOT and Infest sound as shown on the Punish LP but it also incorporates a bit more HHIG, Tragedy and Deathside influence of hardcore creating almost melodic angry hardcore tunes here but they also continue to add the influence of deeper and heavier hardcore to their sound that they'd previously hinted at in their evil blend of hardcore. There's even this early Hatebreed and Blood For Blood sound but fear not for where they got that sound down a little, there's more semblance lyrically to those bands. This is the most HATEFUL material the band has done to date and I've never in my life seen a band continue to write such angry and despising lyrics like this and to actually make them more pointed and just get better in time astounds me. The tracks off the This Comp Kills Fascists were already in the red but this really takes it. Basically John hates all of us and you have to accept that. This was one of 2009's best hands down and if you like hate filled hardcore and constantly feel like taking out someone, living a life that's constantly weighed you down by constant shit this LP is for you. Just buy the record already.

Charred Remains A.K.A Man Is The Bastard / Bleeding Rectum - LP - VERY LIMITED BLUE VINYL - great package with three superb inserts.
This classic 1992 release and 2013 reissue features one of the most underrated bands of all time within the H.C./punk underground: Bleeding Rectum. Hailing from Belfast, North Ireland, Bleeding Rectum has core members from Pink Turds In Space as well as Marty, a second devastating, teenage lead guitarist and Roy, the sickeningly, evil vocalist. Bleeding Rectum are the "real deal" in true, rogue, blitzing power and form. They define hardcore punk with their unduplicated musicianship and total system-hating lyrical concepts. Roy's violent and clear delivery is ferocious as it is brilliant. The lead guitar is wicked without being too "rock.” By today’s standards, Bleeding Rectum slays the competition with the highest levels of rebellion and musical prowess. A MUST LISTEN !!
On their fifth release, Man Is The Bastard explore new liberating and socially aware territories though the classic line-up of Barnes (guitar/noise), Connell (drums), Kenyon (bass/vocals/lyrics), and Wood (bass/vocals/lyrics). Tracks range in length from under one minute ("Idget Child") to over eight minutes ("Infibulation"). Man Is The Bastard’s dual bass and drums nucleus paired with the utter genius of Barnes' home made "caveman electronics” hold their own easily within the grooves of this platter. The Kenyon/Wood dual vocal compositions raise the bar to take hardcore to a new progressive level of writing. This is the height of the early stages of Man Is The Bastard and tracks like "Kai Lai", "Son Of Thug" and "Man Is The Bastard" only define the band's passion beyond expectations.

International Hardcore Compilation LP. 'A ROAR OF INDIGNATION'
"This international compilation is excellent! It is exciting and the songs are urgent. Every single one of them is a roar of indignation. All contemporary. All here and now. Nothing retro or rehashed. All fresh, great and powerful. D-Beat, Crust, Raw Punk and related sounds that work very well together and want me to hear more from every band. Many of them already have their own singles and LPs.
This compilation preserves the diverse individual sound, sound quality and volume of every song recorded at various studios around the world which adds to the already cool presentation. All killer, no filler. Extremely well done. There are comps from a different time, place and different musical styles that evoked similar feelings, including "Peace", "What doesn't hurt us makes us stronger", "Not so quiet on the Western Front", "Eye of the Thrash Guerrilla", "Konton Damaging Ear Massacre" and "Yotsuva".
Roar of indignation comes with an awesome well done booklet and great sleeve artwork.
22 bands from 12 different countries featuring:
Sex Dwarf (Sweden) / Napalm Raid (Canada) / Frenzy (USA) / Selvforakt (Norway / Brazil) / Sub Alert (Sweden) / Kylma Sota (Finland) Strange Factory (Japan) / Homicide (Brazil) / Warvictims (Sweden) / Infernoh (Sweden) / Violent Party (USA) / Leprosy (Australia) / Vaarallinen (Singapore) / Gutter (Greece)

Good Vibrations Records – GOT3 - 1978
Mint unplayed - a superb copy as new off the shelf with press out centre and pink foldout poster cover - you won't find a better copy
The Outcasts were formed in June 1977 in Belfast by the three Cowan brothers, Greg Cowan (vocals / bass), Martin Cowan (guitar/vocals), Colin Cowan (drums) and their friend Colin ‘Getty’ Getgoog (guitar), playing their first gig two months later. ‘You’re A Disease’ / ‘Don’t Want To Be No Adult’ / ‘Frustration’ (It, 1978) is easily the roughest sounding early Outcasts single, ‘You’re A Disease’ stands out as the best track. ‘Frustration’ was later re-recorded for the 1982 LP ‘Blood & Thunder’. ‘Just Another Teenage Rebel’ / ‘Love Is For Sops’ (Good Vibrations, 1978) captures the Outcasts at their best, punk rock with a pop edge, both tracks are classics. Came in the trademark Good Vibes foldout poster sleeve in several different colours, a 2nd pressing was issued in early 1979 with a different cover. ‘The Cops Are Comin’ (Good Vibrations, 1979) was released as part of a double single package ‘Battle Of The Bands’ featuring three other local bands, namely Rudi, Spider and the Idiots. A nasty little tale about killing your girlfriend and having sex with her corpse.
