MDC / IRON
split (2017/TWISTED CHORDS)
HARDCORE/PUNK. MDC (MILLIONS OF DEAD COPS), the indestructible American political hardcore-punk institution with a great split with the Swedish straight-edge band IRON. Green Day used their live-performance on the American Music Awards for an alternate coverversion of MDCs classic "born to die" with new lyrics: "no trump, no KKK, no fascist USA". Based on the media echo MDC recorded their own version and publish it for the 1st time on this 7". IRON from Malmö deliver 2 new and exclusive songs. Once more fast-paced sxe-hardcore of the very best sort. Think of DS-13 or VITAMIN X and you know which avalanche you will be dealing with. Viny comes with foldout-cover and includes a digital download card.
MDC / RESTARTS, THE
mobocracy [split] (2016/BEER CITY)
HARDCORE-PUNK. After being long out-of-print for some time, Beer City present the restored and remastered version of the MDC & THE RESTARTS "mobocracy" split.

The legendary MDC starts out on side one with 7 fast and furious hardcore-punk songs that will remind you of the ferociousness of MDC's 1st self-titled album. Side-b brings you 8 raw, street-punk anthems that THE RESTARTS are know for.
the moonmaiden (2012/RESURRECTION)
METAL-PUNK. After the accidental suicide deaths of 3 drummers, MDK had the legendary Hiroaki Ishiyama flewn in from the small village of Kagoshimaken, Japan to record for this special release.

Celine, Cher, Madonna, Christina, Boy George - all the greats, done up in the way that only the punk-rock prima donnas from the Gimmes can. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
nite vision (2016/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. Since forming in 2006, MEAN JEANS has become one of the better-known bands of the Pacific Northwest punk scene for their chaotic but relentless attack, raucous live shows and fierce commitment to the art of partying. With 2 full-lengths under their belts on Dirtnap Records and a slew of 7"s, MEAN JEANS partnered up with Fat Wreck Chords for this 3-song 7" with the title track "nite vision" coming from their forthcoming album along with 2 exclusive b-sides, giving the people an introduction to their simple garage style rock 'n' roll with all the hooks, energy and humor and just enough Ramones to satisfy all MEAN JEANS fans old and new.
GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. This epic 20 song collection comps singles, compilation appearances, a few covers (WHITE WIRES, BIG EYES, SPARKS) and 1 track from deep in the vaults making its vinyl debut. It’s all covered, from their earliest 2 piece recordings, to the 1st album era with Howie Doodat on bass, to their current, slightly (but not much!) more polished lineup with Junior Jeans. This compilation shows the band at their rawest, oftentimes most goofy and irreverent, and oftentimes best. Pick it up. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

it's not me, it's you (2015/POISON CITY)
PUNK-ROCK. After more than two decades since releasing their cult classic album '10% Weird', iconic Melbourne pub-rock-punks THE MEANIES are officially back, with their new full length "it's not me, it's you". 2014 saw the band re-master and re-release their entire album catalogue on vinyl through local label Poison City, and the band teamed up with Australia's premier punk imprint to bring you 10 blasts of buzz-saw, punk goodness! "it's not me, it's xou" is a short, punchy celebration of the band's winning sound.
reality or nothing (2008/FERAL WARD)
HARDCORE. "reality or nothing" is the 1st full-length release since 1999. MEANWHILE never wavered from the trademark heavy hardcore that sweden and themselves as part of the old-guard, are known for.

Members were/are also in: TOTALITÄR, DISFEAR, NO SECURITY, IMPERIAL LEATHER, AARITILA, KRIGSHOT, DISCHANGE, VARUKERS, etc.. Heavy tip-on sleeves!
Remaining right: silence (2008/FERAL WARD)

the road to hell (2008/FERAL WARD)

MEASURE (SA), THE
notes (2010/NO IDEA)
PUNK-ROCK. THE MEASURE have laid it all on the line here in their 2nd full-length "notes", wherein they continue their tradition of Left Coast-inspired pop-punk that leaves no room for metaphor or horseplay. They play at two speeds: fast and faster. Is the buzz in the guitars or the mix? Rising above the fray, both vocals weave around each other with a cutting cross-examination of self, society, and scene. In the context of a band's life, "notes" would be filed under dark sophomore release and greatest leap forward in confidence and songwriting. Vinyl comes with a MP3 download code.
MEASURE (SA), THE
songs about people.. (2008/DON GIOVANNI)
PUNK-ROCK. On "songs about people", New Brunswick's THE MEASURE (SA) continue to crank out melodic, upbeat melodic-punk, following the formula they use on heir countless splits and 7"s, creating a sound comparable to FIFTH HOUR HERO or an amped up DISCOUNT. Contains 8 of their best songs to date! Colored vinyl available.
delusion moon (2015/SIDE ONE DUMMY)
POST-PUNK. MEAT WAVE is constantly being asked about its name, though it gets why you keep on doing it. Formed in 2011 the 3 Chicago punk scene stalwarts came together and, just a year later, released its self-titled full-length, through that was never the intention. "delusion moon" is a record that's varies, versatile, and endlessly venomous, offering biting social criticism the way only MEAT WAVE can - raw, grungy drive of distorted guitars, pounding drums and a fittingly repetitive lyric that will no doubt embed itself in your mind. For fans of current acts like DIAMOND YOUTH, METZ or classics like SHELLAC and HOT SNAKES. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
crippled children suck (1982/TOUCH AND GO)
HARDCORE-PUNK. This lovingly titled record leans a little too far towards the disgusting side. A few of the songs are more generalized than anything on the first one. Most of these songs aren't instant classics like the ones on the debut, but they'll grow on you, if you like this kind of crap. Same old catchy, poorly-produced obnoxious hate hardcore-punk. THE MEATMEN simply inspire a polite young man to shout "fuck you" every once in a while.
