s/t (2013/TOXIC POP)
GOTHIK/POST-PUNK. INDUSTRIAL PARK hail from Portland and play gothic-rock/post-punk in the tradition of bands like SISTERS OF MERCY, BAUHAUS, and SLOWDIVE. This record would have fit very well among the early 4AD releases. This debut 7" is just a tease of what's to come. Expect great things from this duo. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
run dry (2013/TOXIC POP)
POST-PUNK-ROCK. HIGHWAY CROSS is the product of 4 of northern Virginia's most talented and esteemed veterans of the hardcore/punk scene. Members played in MAJORITY RULE, CLOAK/DAGGER, SHOUTBUS and TRIAC. The band certainly worships at the altar of Rick Froburg (OBITS, HOT SNAKES, DRIVE LIKE JEHU) and it shows through loud, crunchy, angular riffs backed by pounding, driving rhythms. Vinyl includes a digital download and is limited to 300 copies.
medium noise (2008/TOXIC POP)
INDIE/EMO-PUNK. The vinyl version of DEAD MECHANICAL's debut full-length is finally here. Upbeat and catchy tunes with sweet hooks back up dual vocals, one gruff and nicotine-throated and one eager and honey-coated. The band perfectly blends the sounds of bands like JAWBREAKER, SUPERCHUNK and JAWBOX to create a sound that you'll be humming endlessly. This band could easily fit on stage at Gilman or in Chapel Hill in the mid '90s.
outside my window (2008/WALLRIDE)
INDIE/ALTERNATIVE-ROCK. HEAD HOME is a indie-rock/alternative band from Baltimore. The band is best known for its catchy songs driven by overdriven guitar hooks and the voice combinations of Mike Stearns and Jesse Davis. Think stolen BEATLES riffs with a fuzz pedal and dipped heavily in some J.Mascis (DINOSAUR JR.) sauce with a side order or SUPERCHUNK.
let go (2008/WALLRIDE)
GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. Loud, thick, heavy and loud! Denton, Texas' THE PUMPERS come hard and dont let down! In the vein of THE MUMIES and TEENGENERATE, we got loud everything and still plenty of room for catchiness. In all the lame arty or poppy bands classified as rock in '90s, these guys are the saving light. Featuring members of WAX MUSEUMS.
DEAD RADICAL / REPUBLICORPSE
split (2010/GIVE PRAISE)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. This is the final musical output for both of these bands! You'll get brutal power-violence, rotting grindcore, marijuana debacles. Just crucial!
BEAU NAVIRE / REPUBLIC OF DREAMS
SCREAMO-HARDCORE. Oakland, CA's BEAU NAVIRE, comprising members of LOMA PRIETA and various other Bay-Area bands, deliver their best material to date following a slew of releases in only a little over a year. They bring a nervous violence to their heartfelt brand of chaotic hardcore which uniquely plays out in their songwriting. Reminiscent of bands like NEIL PERRY and FUNERAL DINER. Germany's REPUBLIC OF DREAMS is made up of members of LOUISE CYPHRE and play absolutely frantic, feedback-drenched hardcore at a nonstop breakneck pace without sacrificing an ounce of melody for the chaos. Fans of RAEIN and other european screamo bands take note.

PORK DUKES, THE
pink pork (2015/DAMAGED GOODS)
POP-PUNK. Combining a BUZZCOCKS-style pop-punk sound with bawdy subject matter, gross-out toilet humour and profanity in their songs, the band released their debut 7" in 1977 on Wood Records, a subsidiary of Caroline Records created specifically for the band. Due to the lyrical content of their recordings, the band struggled for airplay, though it was known that John Peel was a fan. The true identities of THE PORK DUKES were originally a closely guarded secret, the band playing in pig masks during live performances. Following the release of the "pink pork" album the band broke up in 1979. This is the limited edition repress of the 1st PORK DUKES LP with a brand new cover and once again on lovely pink vinyl.
not so distant future (2008/FERAL WARD)

"not so distant future" contains 10 songs of modern DISCHARGE, MEANWHILE influenced hardcore from members of TRAGEDY, HIS HERO IS GONE, HELLSHOCK, TALK IS POISON, ESTRANGED, etc.. If you already dig their previous stuff, you'll love this too! This is the soundtrack for our pending doom.
with love (2009/HEX)
POST-HARDCORE. Since 2006 Portland's PRIZE COUNTRY have been cranking out a heavy, progressive style of post-hardcore that is most closely comparable to later SNAPCASE, but also incorporates elements of QUICKSAND, DRIVE LIKE JEHU and FUGAZI to create a pretty unique sound. Vinyl comes with gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
GOOD, THE BAD AND THE ZUGLY, THE
brainbomb/killing time (2012/FYSISK FORMAT)
HARDCORE-PUNK. What we have here is an example of classic white trash punk-rock from Oslo! THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE ZUGLY has released three 7" this far and have quickly become underground darlings in their hometown. Absorbing plenty of filth and speed from the school of GG ALLIN and POISON IDEA and adding a snotty and absurd sense of humour, these young men have created a new breed of punk-rock that is as repulsive as it is irresistable. Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl.
while a nation sleeps (2015/END HITS/BRIDGE NINE)
POST-HARDCORE. Hardcore pioneers BOYSETSFIRE are back with a bang; 7 years after their groundbreaking album "misery index - notes from the plague years". BOYSETSFIRE has been a driving force in the hardcore scene since 1994, achieving the fine balance between furious old-school hardcore and melodic, emotional punk hooks like no other band to date. Never again would outsiders be permitted to threaten the existence of such a fragile construct. Colored (gold) vinyl includes a download card with 3 additional bonus tracks.
