nouns (2008/SUB POP)
POST-ROCK. "nouns", the band's Sub Pop debut, is succinctly all-encompassing, from the faux-simplicity of the title to the beautiful distortion of its sound, to the packaging that includes a 68-page fullcolor book packed with photos and art pieces. The record opens with a symphony of noise and sometimes creeps, sometimes smashes through a sonic headlock befitting "daydream nation"-era SONIC YOUTH, KIWI POP, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, and experimental noise. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
yo no soy como tu (2014/GILGONGO)
POST-PUNK. A 5 song 7" of spastic no-wave punk that is delivered like an amalgamation of THE EX, DOG FACED HERMANS, SLEETMUTE NIGHTMUTE and GOD IS MY CO-PILOT. A follow up to their LP and 4-way split, this is their 1st release with Jasmine (NEO CONS and NEIGHBORHOOD BRATS) on vocals.
NOISE-PUNK. "less" is the highly acclaimed 2nd full-length of NO BALLS from Sweden. Sexually driven, mean and nasty proto punk with no-wave hints. A vast play with associations, let the songtitles sink and fill the voids yourself for this raw in-your-face assault. Yet again a very good vinyl mastering that displays the details clearly and carves out the edges very precisely. Limited edition of 650 copies.
NO BRAGGING RIGHTS
the concrete flower (2014/PURE NOISE ENTERTAINMENT)
HARDCORE/METAL. Southern California's NO BRAGGING RIGHTS is establishing itself as one of the hardest-working bands in the metallic hardcore scene. "the concrete flower" brings their blend of brutal, metallic hardcore and melodic punk to packed rooms all over the globe. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
keine klasse (2010/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. What do you get when you combine bad relationships, growing up in the bible belt, undying teenage angst and filter it through a complete lack of discretion, while on the brink of a nervous breakdown? You'll get 10 and a half tracks of foot stomping, knuckle dragging, Midwest hardcore, entirely apathetic to your personal feelings...NO fucking CLASS.
keine klasse II (2012/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. "keine klasse II" is NO CLASS' 2nd attempt at peering out of their neanderthalic cave in which they reside. Perceiving a world which they still don’t care for, "keine klasse II" picks up the motion where the 1st full-length left off, with 10 more tracks of knuckle dragging commentary on your identity, religion, scene and whatever else rubs them the wrong way. Which is pretty much everything. With the right touch of hate and sarcasm - it's fast, it's slow, it's intellectual, and of course, moronic. Nice gatefold jacket to boot.
common senses (2010/DEEP SIX)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Finally this 1st classic release got repressed. In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s brutality hardcore was being born with Southern California contributing CROSSED OUT, INFEST and NO COMMENT. NO NCOMMENT played fast and energetic hardcore with songs about the cesspool of human existence, animal rights, and other ills of life on planet earth. The definitive example of West-Coast hardcore and Slap-A-Ham power-violence.

live on kxlu 1992 (2013/DEEP SIX)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Along with other power-violence bands such as CROSSED OUT, CAPITALIST CASUALTIES, and MAN IS THE BASTARD, NO COMMENT was influential in what was known to become the west-coast power-violence scene for their aggressive musical and conceptual take on the hardcore punk genre. In other words, NO COMMENT is undoubdtedly one of the true pioneers of all power-violence and fastcore. This 7" features 11 tracks recorded on Los Angeles, CA's KXLU radio.
one sided (2011/TO LIVE A LIE)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Reincarnation of the classic NO COMPLY (who did splits with EXHUMED, CHRIST MESS, XBRAINIAX) with original member Justin Abare still in the ranks. One-sided with the same material repeated on the b-side.
NO COMPLY / SUPPRESION
split (2013/TO LIVE A LIE)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. SUPPRESSION are hot off splits with DAHMER, ENEMY SOIL, GRIEF, DESPISE YOU, BENUMB... wait, those releases were 20 from years ago. SUPPRESSION are back after being an inactive noise group for a number of years to take the reigns back on to their power-violence purebread. This time back they have taken almost a bass-fueled mutant of LIGHTNING BOLT approach to power-violence. On the flipside another '90s powerhouse brings you new tracks of bass, drums, noise, and anger. Both bands have taken and warped your views of what can be done when pissed off kids of the '90s grow up and become pissed off men.
NO COMPLY / SETE STAR SEPT
split (2014/JERK OFF)
POWER-VIOLENCE/GRINDCORE. NO COMPLY serves up 5 songs, including a SPAZZ cover, from their 1997 demo tape. Featured members on this recording include ex-members of ASSHOLE PARADE, ANSOJUAN etc. - a total SPAZZ worship! Japan's 2 piece noisegrind band SETE STAR SEPT put 6 new tracks on it. Noise! noise! noise! Limited to 500 copies.
second to none (2009/BARBAROSSA)
PUNK-ROCK. "second to none" deliever 7 songs of tuneful bliss from Syracuse's prodigal sons and daughter of pop-punk mastery. For fans of SCREECHING WEASEL, FIFTEEN, and DISCOUNT. Female fronted, male backed and deeply rooted in the early '90s punk sound that was done right the 1st time around. Featuring Barb from I OBJECT on vocals.
10,000 summers (2014/COLLECT)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. NO DEVOTION, a project featuring THURSDAY vocalist Geoff Rickly with LOST PROPHETS as his backing band, return with "10,000 summers", the 2nd out-take from their forthcoming debut album. The song is backed with "only thing", a track that finds the band's melodic-aggressive pulse, and the original demo for "10,000 summers", which lends insight into the band's songwriting process while holding its own as a distinct piece of work in itself.
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. Geoff Rickly, the Brooklyn-based former THURSDAY frontman, had been keeping busy with UNITED NATIONS, but there was no inkling that he had been working on anything else - much less a new band with the former musical base of LOSTPROPHETS, one of the UK's most successful rock bands of decade. "permanence" is an album as ambitious and expansive as its name suggests. NO DEVOTION has refined those early flirtations with nostalgic pop-noir to find themselves at the intersection of post-punk heart and contemporary tricknology.
