RAW DISTRACTIONS/STAGNATION/SAD BOYS - 3-WAY SPLIT 7"

Available for £2.99 at  https://blitzrecords.bigcartel.com
"Drunken raw pogo attack punk Sad Boys from HC punk front line NYC. They put this EP for their Japan tour with Raw Distractions/Stagnation in this May. Catchy, melodius, tight & raw sounds with charming singer's vocal. According to Pogo77 Records primitive and energetic 5 songs. One of the most exciting bands to fuzz their way out of Tokyo is STAGNATION. Hyper intense hardcore punk that takes the concepts thrown down on Confuse's polarizing "Stupid Life" EP to their ultimate conclusion. Raw Distractions is more fast, simple and straight UK82' style compare with their current 1st EP."[description courtesy Punkdistro online store]

To The Point ‎– Give Me A Reason - 7" colour vinyl


To The Point ‎– Give Me A Reason - 7" single sided with insert on coloured vinyl limited to 500 copies.

IN STOCK NOW

New 7" from my fav band which includes my good mate Bob Deep of Deep Six Records on drums - coloured vinyl includes maroon/grey/green/brown

I'm sure you've all heard of To The Point by now; the unstoppable group comprised of members of Actuary, Fetus Eaters, Lack Of Interest and Spazz. Caveman powerviolence. The musicianship here is tighter than a nuns nether regions, and the songs are crafted just  how you would expect seasoned veterans of this style to make them; perfectly. I just love hearing Bob bash the shit out of a drum kit. Dude really blasts like no other, he definitely has captured a sound that is uniquely his own, with the very dry drum tone and super hard attack. It's also great to hear Chris Dodge, Caveman almighty, front a band again. Again, very early Lack Of Interest style vocals; gruff, low, and kind of cheesy.
Every song this band creates is top notch. You know the story. TTP is sort of a “Lack of Interest 2.0″, but they’ve obliterated any misconceptions that this is going to be a formulaic cookie-cutter clone of a now legendary band. No, To The Point is it’s own monster & adds something desperately needed to hardcore: Spontaneity! You can never guess what they’re going to end up half way through any one of their songs. And then they do it. And no matter what path they choose the result is always something insanely pleasurable to hear at the end. Everyone in the band is literally “on point” when it comes to every aspect of the music. There are no weak links at all. But in my humble opinion, what separates this band from everyone else is the guitar playing. Things you would NEVER think to put in a hardcore song on top of a flawless foundation of bass and drums suddenly make complete sense. It’s meticulous, it always comes out of nowhere & it compliments everything else so perfectly that their sounds becomes instantly recognizable. The fact that they can achieve this all while never ignoring the basic fundamentals of fast music & what makes a great HC song truly great is a thing of beauty and harder than anyone is willing to admit. Being hardcore veterans, they have used their knowledge to basically transcend the genera without losing an ounce of the speed, brutality, wit or integrity that makes this type of music so pure and wonderful to begin with.

Negative Insight #2 - Bristol Breakout

Superb mag from my good friend Eric is available here  http://penetration82.blogspot.com/
The second issue of the mag Negative Insight is out now. Here's the description:

Here is the second issue of Negative Insight, entitled the "Bristol Breakout" issue. With a focus on the deafening noise of the Bristol punk scene in the 1980s, it contains comprehensive interviews with Chaos UK, Disorder, and Riot City Records founder Simon Edwards. The issue features many previously unpublished photos from the personal archives of band members and others involved in the scene, a large four panel fold out poster, articles, and more. It comes accompanied by a Chaos UK 7" containing two rare studio tracks recorded in 1981 and 1983 and packaged in a Riot City inspired sleeve. This issue is printed as a professional magazine on coated paper instead of the previous zine style, but with all layouts done in the traditional cut 'n paste format with typewriter text. This should appeal to fans of British hardcore, 1980s layouts, and those who enjoy reading about drug abuse and living the chaos.

Complete info and photos can be viewed here: http://penetration82.blogspot.com/

LOW THREAT PROFILE - product #3 - 7" - yellow vinyl


very limited mailorder only on yellow vinyl
This third output from Low Threat Profile features Infest's Matt Domino not only playing guitar and bass but doing all of the vocals as well, with the band being rounded out by Bob from Deep Six/Lack Of Interest on drums. These nine tracks are exactly what should be expected: fast, intense hardcore that borders on the powerviolence played by those who originated the genre. This is probably one of the most fierce and down-to-the-core and back-to-basics hardcore records of the last decade and a strong reminder that high energy playng and superb songwriting are everything you need when it's time to deliver the goods in five minutes of hardcore. For fans of Manpig, Infest and No Comment. Threat Profile deliver another nine scoops of vanilla hardcore with a dollop of whip cream and a "fuck you" on top.

Track Listing: 
The Opportunist 
Medicate 
Set The Bar Low 
Middle Age Casualty 
God Complex 
Give And Receive 
Protector 
Null And Void 
Dropping Like Flies

LOW THREAT PROFILE - Product #1 - 7"


POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Finally back in stock! Power-violence rules, ok? Featuring former members of INFEST, NO COMMENT and LACK OF INTEREST. So, if those names mean nothing to you then check out all those bands. Why? because they rip and dip like few can. If you're familiar with those acts then you are already salivating and thinking that this is too good to be true. Honestly, it's a fucking great record - 10 tracks of straight forward hardcore. Recorded before 2001.

Track Listing: 
Kick My Heart / Time For Rebirth / Judgement Passed / Corporate Cash Lies / Lessons In Cruelty / Build Back Your Walls / Nobody Fears You / Southern Hospitality / The Product / You Are Parasite

PHOBIA - Grind Core - 7" EP - brown vinyl


Phobia continues their legacy as one of the most intense, fierce and authentic grindcore bands out there. It's impossible to hear a disappointing album from this bunch of rockers, and Grindcore is not an exception. Brian Fajardo, again, continues being one of the best drummer in the business, not only at being so mechanical and precise but at maintaining a certain “humanity” in his playing. The rest of the band, CC, Calum and Dorian are also at the top of their game. They have the speed, control and sense of pride in what they do that guarantees that hundreds of kids around the planet consider trading their videogames for guitars. Even the vocal delivery of Shane in this release sounds more pissed and a bit more brutal than usual. This release has no flaws, it is fast, to the point and it has been created by a band that really knows how to grind not only your ears but your mind.

D-Takt & Råpunk needs help

D-TAKT & RAPUNK NEEDS YOUR HELP

ANY HELP FOR MY GOOD MATE JOCKE WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED
D-Takt & Råpunk needs help!
Disaster struck the D-Takt & Råpunk headquarters and a GoFundMe-account has been set up for his aid. What happened is one of my worst nightmares, so consider helping Jocke out. Any amount counts, big as small. 

http://dbeatrawpunk.blogspot.co.uk/

Help out here: http://www.gofundme.com/cqkoog

IF JOCKE SINKS
WE ALL GO DOWN
PUNK'S A RELIGION
NOT JUST A SOUND

As myself or anyone who does a D.I.Y. label can tell you, it is not easy or cheap. Due to the costs, this could be the end of the label and distro. D-Takt has supplied many night's soundtrack here and on top of everything, Jocke is one of the best people I know. I've had the pleasure of working with him both as a partner and releasing the Paranoid ep. He is in it for the right reasons. The label is done because he has a true passion for raw punk. I know anyone who is into raw punk at all has more than a few releases in their collection. It would be a terrible loss to lose such an amazing and important labels that has supplied some of the best noise for almost the past decade. - Gaki Nezumi - Konton Crusher.


Below are Jocke's own words about what happened. 

" Records and merch, tour/band gifts and parts of my private collection is totally drenched, ruined and must be discarded at a value of around: 41.200€ / $54.900 / 35.200£ / 5.650.000YEN and my insurance covers only: 5100€ / $6800 / 4000£ / 700.000YEN because our stock is located in a storage room. I dont know/think I will survive this personal and economic crisis. And as it seems, this might be the end of D-takt & Råpunk Records. When a damage such as this strikes against a d.i.y punk label its hard to get back in the ring again. I could really need all your help and support right now. Feel free to get in touch if you think that you can help us out in any way. More information will follow as soon as i know more about this total mess. I really hate to beg and ask for favours and I would not do it if I absolutely not needed. I need some sleep, been working day and night for two days straight in a row now. I will try my best to keep the punk spirit up, but at the same time I must admit that it feels pretty fucking hopeless right now. The label, distro and everything around it will be closed indefinitely until I got a better overview of the whole situation. Thanks for all your support! "
