Cleveland based band featuring guitarist Shaun of Annihilation Time fame, Larry from Darvocets on vocals plus other bunch of Clevo freaks from Gordon Solie Motherfuckers, Inmates, 9 Shocks Terror and so on. This tape is all killer no filler. 6 original tracks plus great Plasmatics cover. This is pretty badass and catchy hardcore punk played fast and in the most filthier manner and the vocals are fucking great on this one.
You can buy this tape via Cut The Chord Records. I think CTCR will also drop their new full-lenght.
New 12" from NYC based Nuclear Spring. These guys put out one of the best demo tapes I've heard in the last few years (check it out here). On this new 12" they continued with writing abrasive, driving and upbeat high-energy mid-paced punk anthems which sounds like they've been written in dirty British suburbs circa 1977-82 (Ok, I quoted this from press info I've written for their new 7" but that doesn't mean I'm lying). And, as I previous said in the demo tape review; "If name dropping means something to you, think of early Blitz, Partisans and Templars, or some new bands such as Criminal Damage or No Hope For The Kids." Also, some trivia for ya, Nuclear Spring members were/are active in Natural Law, Creem, La Misma, Putrida and Nomos.
This one is sold out but Nuclear Spring also put out 4 new tracks on 7" format. On the new 7" EP, these Brooklyn-based outcasts have also changed their sound a little bit and began to flirt with the 80's UK anarcho style, but still managed to avoid the standard retro death rock/post-punk sound that's trendy at the moment. 7" EP is out on Doomtown Records. If you want to get your hands on the Nuclear Spring's new vinyl see more infos/links on Doomtown Records blog.
Ok, some of you are familiar with the fact that some of us are involved in Doomtown Records. This is one of four new releases we put out in the last 2 months aka; Debut six song tape from this reckless & relatively new punk trio which sounds like cross between 80's melodic hardcore punk mixed with sloppy & raw garage-y punk feel. Think somewhere along the spectrum of sounds situated between Zero Boys and Adolescents with Angry Samoans alike vocal. The band just got back from their european tour with their buddies Black Gust and brought this babies to our headquarters.
For fans of: The Observers, Carbonas, Predator, The Daily Void, Angry Samoans...

One of the better 80's sounding punk releases I've heard lately. These guys play ripping and high energy nihilistic punk in vein of FU's, Jerry's Kids and fuckin' good old Teen Idles, but somehow this sounds totally catchy and also fresh at the same time. These degenerates are all about lust, filth and sleaze. As we speak of sleaze, one of the Night Stalkers members is involved in Sex Before Suicide zine so make sure to get your hands on this particular zine cause it's really a must have if you're into obscure cinema, trash culture and gay pornography. More info here, and here.
This is out on french based Offside Records. If you're ordering this from the States you can get it from Sorry State.
