s/t (2014/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
MELODIC/POP-PUNK. SCORPIOS is a collaboration by Joey Cape, Jon Snodgrass, the late Tony Sly and Brian Wahlstrom. After years of touring together as solo artists and playing on each other's songs, the foursome wrote and recorded these ten tracks as a unit. The result is some of the most gratifying work of their respective careers. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
SCOTT KELLY & THE ROAD HOME
the forgiven ghost in me (2012/MY PROUD MOUNTAIN)
FOLK/ACOUSTIC-ROCK. SCOTT KELLY and his new partners THE ROAD HOME (Noah Landis and Greg Dale) continue to explore the great mystery with "the forgiven ghost in me". With another collection of sparse, introspective songs, Kelly delves even further into a personal, private space that he has now come to occupy fully and solely. Recorded by Landis, "the forgiven ghost in me" is the natural progression from his 1st solo album, "spirit bound flesh", and 2008s "the wake". With his unmistakeable deep growl, his fearless lyrical honesty, and rich, spare guitar work, Kelly lays everything on the line. Only a true artist would be so willingly and completely exposed.

SCRAPS AND HEARTATTACKS
s/t (2007/DEAD BY 23)
HARDCORE. SCRAPS AND HEARTATTACKS are a no frills hardcore band that represent all that is precious in New York; they are uncompromising, raw, and ruthless. Drawing influences from many bands before them, their sound is fast, furious, and vicious, and refuses to be ignored. Current members went on in THIS IS HELL, so you know what to expect! Now available again on colored vinyl!
The smart sensation (2007/GROVER)
SKA-PUNK. SCRAPY label themselves as street-ska which detaches them from ska-punk which can only be a good thing. On their 4th full-length you'll get driving ska and punk-rock made in Bavaria. There's definitely hints of THE CLASH via RANCID blended with elements of the BOSSTONES thrown in, but this is raw without doubt street-music and it's not jokey and silly. It has self-respect right from the presentation. This isn't a Ska-release about peace, love and unity.
complete control sessions (2011/SIDE ONE DUMMY)
HARDCORE. After 1st emerging nearly 30 years before this recording from D.C.'s nascent underground punk scene, SCREAM has returned with the release of their "complete control sessions", a 7 song 10" recorded live in their former drummer Dave Grohl's Studio, picking up where their 1993 swansong "fumble" left off. The band features the 4 original members from the "still screaming" full-length plus newcomer guitarist Clint Walsh. 10" includes a MP3 download card.
still screaming (2008/DISCHORD)
HARDCORE. Re-pressed for the first time in over a decade, the debut full-length from D.C.'s SCREAM is finally seeing the light again on vinyl. This full-length, produced by Ian MacKaye and Eddie Janney of FAITH shows the band's advanced musicianship and rock 'n' roll sensibility while still maintaining the speed and punk fury that characterized the early '80s DC bands. If you are into the hardcore D.C. scene then pick it up - you will enjoy it! Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

this side up (2010/DISCHORD)
HARDCORE. "this side up" was originally released on LP in 1985 nand is the 2nd full-length from early '80s DC hardcore band SCREAM, was recorded in 2 sessions in 1984, the 1st session being produced by Dr. Know of Bad Brains and the 2nd by Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat and features a 2nd guitarist for the 1st time. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
children of the bone yard stones (2011/QUEER PILLS)
PUNK-ROCK. SCREAMING DEAD hailed from the UK in the early '80s and were labled a horror-punk'' band. This 7'' has 6 tracks all recorded in 1982 which originally came out as a demo tape. This is the 1st time these songs have been put onto vinyl with original art work. This should be classic stuff by now!
castle talk (2010/DON GIOVANNI)
POST-PUNK. Last year, SCREAMING FEMALES toured relentlessly in support of their critically acclaimed 3rd album "power move". The year brought them to a wider mainstream consciousness, gaining attention for their punk-rock sensibilities and their raucous live shows driven by front woman Marissa Paternoster's famed guitar heroics. The band’s 4th full-length, "castle talk", finds the spirited trio making an honest push - musically at least - to leave behind whatever constraints the notion of a scene implies.

ugly (2012/DON GIOVANNI)
PUNK-ROCK. SCREAMING FEMALES' 7 years as a band, 4 full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss. Through it all, the New Brunswick trio has continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America's punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking. Vinyl version includes a digital download card.
anthem for a new tomorrow (2012/RECESS)
POP-PUNK. This album was SCREECHING WEASEL's 5th, recorded in 1993 and originally released on Lookout! Records while featuring guest vocal spots from gentlemen like Fat Mike of NOFX and Blake Schwarzenbach of JAWBREAKER. "anthem for a new tomorrow", takes their patent fuzzy crunch pop sound to new heights with tight production and more catchy melodies. This classic album has been re-mastered and redesigned making it a must-have for any collection. Colored vinyl comes with gatefold-cover.
first world manifesto (2011/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
POP-PUNK. Back in '86, SCREECHING WEASEL took up the RAMONES' torch and has since created a bonfire. Not satisfied to rest on their laurels, the band recently reformed and completed their 1st material in 11 years, "first world manifesto". Comprised of 14 tracks, the album has all the hallmarks of an instant SCREECHING WEASEL classic. From the short, fast punk-rock standards bearing Ben's trademark ire, to the traditional mid-tempo, it's all in there.
Skate attack (2006/MARKER)
HARDCORE. After a couple well done releases (THE TANGLED LINES and SHUT THE FUCK UP etc.) Marker records from the Münster area is back with another awesome rerelease. The 14 tracks are quite good, with lots of anger, energy, and speed. SCREWED UP going to mix their early `80s US-hardcore with today's 625 bandana-trashcore! All tracks are built on a foundation of solid trashy and positive hardcore song writing and the occassional inclusion of a catchy melody. The lyrics shifts from your standard "stabbed in the back" fare to songs that are actually interesting and make you think Fast and energetic hardcore recommended for fans of LIF'S HALT, DEAD NATION, SHARK ATTACK or anyone disgruntled in skate- thrash- and fastcore with a hint of positive message.
SCREWED UP / SICK TIMES
split (2008/DESTINATION UNKNOWN)
HARDCORE-PUNK. SCREWED UP should be known for their "Skate attack" full-length. This newest release blasts through 9 songs of raw and confrontational hardcore with an early '80s punk sort of recklessness. The production grabs you by the throat and slams your head into the wall. This is fast, aggressive and rockin hardcore. SICK TIMES on the flipside serve 9 hardcore-punk tracks of straight up hardcore-punk that explode with anger and aggression, faithfully carrying on the same style of their split-partner. Those who are familiar with both bands from East-Germany know what to expect. Those who aren't, educate yourself. Limited pressing of 500 copies. Get your fix now - if you like real hardcore then you will like this...period.
