fuck world trade (2004/ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES)
SKA/PUNK. Ska-punk collides head on with hoarse vocals and political hardcore as NYC squatters LEFTOVER CRACK drop their first full-length album in three years.

medicore generica (2008/HELLCAT)
SKA/PUNK. After several years now available on vinyl! Drawing from the depths of hardcore, punk, ska and classical pieces, LEFTOVER CRACK creates a cutting-edge conglomerate. Their lyrical assault on contemporary issues such as political corruption, drug use, schoolyard murders and capitalism make the band no stranger to controversy. "mediocre generica" released in 2001 demands attention from the 1st track.
LEFTOVER CRACK / CITIZEN FISH
split (2007/ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES)
SKA/PUNK. Two great tastes that taste great together - fish and crack! Well, maybe only for the most refined palate, but for everyone else the melding of these 2 ska/punk powerhouses is so sweet to the ears. You'll get 5 new songs from each band. Each band takes a stab at covers of the other's current and past bands. CITIZEN FISH put their spin on LEFTOVER CRACK's “clear channel”, and “money” by CHOKING VICTIM. Not to be outdone, LEFTOVER CRACK step in with a crustified version of “the super-market song” by CITIZEN FISH, followed by a run at SUBHUMAN's “reason for existence”.
LEGENDARY TIGERMAN, THE
BLUES-ROCK. THE LEGENDARY TIGERMAN is a Portuguese "one-man band" following the Mississippi's old Blues tradition and the blues-man who played alone with improvised rhythm sections in dance-halls in the deep south. Paulo Furtado's attempt at recreating the raw & gritty Delta blues with just guitar, kickdrum, and slurred vocals. As such, it runs the risk of sounding a bit contrived; white European playing black southern music; and since Furtado lacks the virtuousity of Bob Log III or for that sake the old masters, he has to make up for it with a naked rawness that takes this album a long way. If the compositions tend toward the sketchy and traditional, the JON SPENCER-esque shouting and general fucked up-ness of the enterprise helps it loads. The LP is limited to 666 copies and comes in thick 180gr vinyl and in a well designed gatefold cover!
the final days (2011/SCHIZOPHRENIC)
CRUST-METAL/HARDCORE. LEGION 666’s newest offering, "the final days" lays it out dark and dirty. You'll 8 tracks of varied apocalyptic paranoia eschewed with a vocal delivery of charred glass, a syncopated rhythmic assault and heavy, yet poignant wall of guitars that teeter more onto the hardcore side of the punk/metal ledger. While the majority of "the final days" comes to grips with humanity's meagre demise, each title stands strongly on its own.
Shit happens (2008/LOUD BLAIRING PUNK ROCK)
HARDCORE. This 7" combines 4 killer tracks of '90s style hardcore. LEGIT combines the anger of BORN AGAINST with the melodic speed of CR. The metalish guitar work and emotionally charged vocals is reminiscent of the early '90s bands like GROUNDWORK or ASSFACTOR 4.
for a better world (2012/SPASTIC FANTASTIC)
HARDCORE. After the brilliant 1st full-length LP by Nurembergs LEIDKULTUR, here is another smasher of high quality, premium hardcore. A raw and evil rollercoaster ride between bands like FROM ASHES RISE, BOMBENALARM, THE NOW-DENIAL. Members also play(ed) in bands like ARNOLD STRONG, IMMURED, YOUTH WARS and VENGEANCE. Vinyl comes along in a screen-printed fold-out cover.
it's a shame about ray (2009/PLAIN)
ALTERNATIVE/INDIE-ROCK. Vinyl repressing of this alternative rock classic from Evan Dando and friends, originally released in 1992. Over 15 years after it's original release, "it's a shame about ray" still holds up as a jangle-pop classic. Singer Evan Dando does a fine job of mixing all of his influences into the record: jangle-pop, country-rock, power-pop, and punk. He sings in an understated and unpretentious manner that succeeds all the same in bringing his clever lyrics into full relief. The jangley acoustic strumming and crisp arpeggios that come to the fore give the 13 tracks a very autumnal feel. Available again on thick 180gr. vinyl!
mallo cup (2012/FIRE)
ALTERNATIVE/INDIE-ROCK. With the announcement of a new, grittier, LEMONHEADS album on the horizon, Fire Records will be reissuing the band's 1st three albums "hate your friends", "creator" and "lick", which showcase the band's early punk-rock roots. This limited 7" feature the original "lick" version of "mallo cup" as well as a live radio version, which was recorded for VPRO in Holland, which featured on a later version of "creator".
the hotel sessions (2011/HALL OF RECORDS)
ALTERNATIVE/INDIE-ROCK. THE LEMONHEADS will release "the hotel sessions" - an intimate recording documenting a Sunday night that Evan Dando spent recording new songs with just an acoustic guitar (and some revealing commentary) in a hotel room in Bondi Beach, Australia. The 14 songs include some that never made it to an official LEMOMHEADS album, but Dando says, the "into your arms" i did here is better than the one on the album.
