blight (2007/ASSAULT/PLAY TO DESTROY)
HARDCORE-PUNK. "blight" has 6 tracks of hardcore-punk for the working class. No gimmicks, no crews, no bullshit. Disillusioned, angry and pissed. SHORT FUSE are unafraid to voice their disappointment with their lives, their jobs and you. Not looking for approval, this is honest punk rock the way it was meant to be played, raw, abrasive and in your face. CD contains the "fruitless efforts" 7" the demo and live recordings (a total of 38 tracks).
HARDCORE. After several releases on Assault Records SHORT FUSE found with Hardware Records a new home. Their new LP entitled "burnout" feature 12 songs of raw, dirty, no frills and negative hardcore. Taking influence from NEGATIVE APPROACH and early Boston bands like LAST RIGHTS, NEGATIVE FX and newer bands like 86 MENTALITY.
fruitless efforts (2006/ASSAULT/UNDERESTIMATED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Hot on the heels of their debut LP comes this 4 track 7". A little less trash, a little more melody and anger to spare- these songs will stay in your head after a few spins. These guys are still pissed and jaded, but they're also ready to fight, wearing their working class colors with defiance. For those of you who can't do without some comparisons, imagine early FUCKED UP, mixed with POISON IDEA. Dirty and raw, this is SHORT FUSE and they're ready to explode.
HARDCORE-PUNK. SHORT FUSE charge at you with 18 tracks of pissed-off old-school hardcore in just under 20min.. These guys have been active in the scene for years and their love for early hardcore from the 80's is more than evident. Stripped down and raging hardcore-punk that serves as an outlet to vent frustrations, a way to deal with the pressures of the daily grind. If you miss bands like the CIRCLE JERKS and can't get enough FUCKED UP vinyl, SHORT FUSE will deliver the goods. Not concerned with crews and cliques, this is true hardcore-punk, furious and reckless. Limited colored vinyl.
SHORT FUSE / CHUCK DAMAGE
HARDCORE-PUNK. Two of Münster's notorious bastards team up for whiplash a of a split. Each 3 songs, clocking in just under 5min. and their best to date. Forget about NEGATIVE APPROACH's lame ass rehearsal shits effort. Buy this insted - hammering hardcore-punk the way it was meant to sound! 500 copies total!
demo (2009/IDONEUM BELLO)
HARDCORE. SHORTLIVED`s demo was orgiginal released in 2007 on CDR and this 7” was supposed to be a white label pressing ltd. to 200 copies and should be sold on their European tour but as it took the pressing plant ages to do this item, it didn’t make it right on time. Lucky you cause now you get a chance to get one of them. This is fast, raw and angry hardcore. Limited and handnumbered edition!
mindrot (2009/IDONEUM BELLO)
HARDCORE. SHORTLIVED are another New Zealand band worth checking out. Their "mindrot" 7” has 8 great tracks of raw, fast and pissed-off hardcore not unlike DROP DEAD. On "mindrot" you'll get 7 tracks of their own and a nice LIGHTS OUT cover as icing on the gravy! Limited edition of just 300 copies. You know the deal!
Band aus Japan und wie sollte es auch anders sein, hier wird 6 mal rasend schneller Japan-Core in Richtung Systematic Death geboten. Super Scheibe! Wer also auf den ganzen Japan-Core steht sollte hier zugreifen.
PUNK-ROCK. After several years in the making this 19 song epic full-length album has finally been properly released in its entirety. SHOTWELL falls somewhere between THE CLASH and STIFF LITTLE FINGERS, all with a heavy mid '90s Bay-Area influence. And after over 15 years of continuous performing and recording (through countless line-up changes) the "patriot" stands alone as a recording of SHOTWELL at their best.
from bad to worse and nine to five (2010/RISING RIOT)
HARDCORE. About 2 years after the fabulous debut 7" of SHOYU SQUAD from Bielefeld, the 4 guys recorded 10 new songs to release their 1st full-length called "from bad to worse and nine to five". The tracks are way darker than the tracks of the 7". SHOYU SQUAD play hardcore with diverse influences, a lot of power, outstanding vocals, and raging guitar leads. This full-length, which encompasses the power they have as a band with precision and depth more fully than of their previous release. If you enjoy BOMENALARM or CHAINBREAKER you should take a listen to this nice platter!
new age soma (2009/KEEP IT ANGRY)
HARDCORE-PUNK. This is the 5 track debut 7" by this crazy hardcore kids from Bielefeld and Hannover! It's fast, loud, angry, political, and your mom hates it. Every track is non-stop hardcore with a hint of punk that will leave you with a couple of black eyes. So buy it and try not to hurt yourself. Limited edition of nearly 500 copies. You better get your copy now!
PUNK/NOISE-ROCK. Mind bending pysch and noise-punk from Orange County, California. "meltdown" contains material from THE SHRILLS 1st 3 releases plus additional new songs. This album is arranged so that each song blends seamlessly into the next, creating one chaotic mess of trippy, psychedelic fuzz. Recorded and pressed on wax directly from the original master tapes using all analog equipment. All copies include colored vinyl and a digital download card.
against all odds (2011/VICTORY)
SXE-HARDCORE. With an emphasis on old-school values and new-school musical sensibility, SHUTDOWN is poised to take over where bands like GORILLA BISCUITS left off.

This record also contains 3 tracks from their older releases, alongside 11, detailing the evolution of SHUTDOWN, and of hardcore as a whole.
SHYBOY / BEERWULF
split (2011/SOLAR FUNERAL)
PUNK-ROCK. Split 7" between 2 Japanese bands. SHYBOY from Fukuoka has member of PEAR OF THE WEST, BUTCH and SCREAMING FAT RAT. They play melodic punk-rock like '70s UK punk. Think THE CLASH, NEWTOWN NEUROTICS or more recently bands like SMALLTOWN, RINGERS. BEERWULF from Kyoto are former I EXCUSE and play also melodic punk-rock with female vocal. More powerful, think FIFTH HOUR HERO, THIS IS MY FIST. Each band brings 2 songs.
