It seems that we have neglected our website somewhat recently, between jobs, bands, fests and parenthood it seems that this has taken a backseat – apologies.
So, this is what we’ve been working on…
Chicken’s call have a new record out and we helped put it out! Their first record in ten years! Ten tracks of catchy DIY punk with a blazing anarcho undercurrent from Grenoble’s finest. Split release with some of the best DIY labels in Europe. Recorded in January/February 2023 at « Studio A » in Grenoble/France, by Miquel and Manuel. Mix by Miquel and Chicken’s call. Master by Daniel Husayn, North London Bomb Factory, May 2023. Artwork by Barreto. Limited to 500 copies.
It’s £8.00 plus p&p from our webstore and you can also check it out online here.
We have also helped released the following few records since we’ve last update this…
Axe Rash / Therapy – Split 7″
Raw Hardcore Punk from Stockholm/Uppsala and San Diego!
Moonflower – Demo 2022 (Cosmic forest crust from Manchester, UK.)
Both still available on the webstore, alongside a huge drop of Vegan Edge records courtesy of Ugly & Proud Records from Bulgaria.
Despite our lack of website updates, you’ll be pleased to hear we’ve still been busy with the label and distro. Here’s what we’ve helped release in the last year or so:
Kalpa – A Grand Misconception 12” (loud DIY hardcore band from Athens, Greece.)
Better Reality – I Like Punk Life 7” (DIY super posi raw punk from Manchester/Sheffield.)
Spillage – Demo 2019 tape (new band from Manchester featuring our Fran on vocals! Spillage play melodic hardcore for the socially maligned.)
This Ends Here – The Last Hundred Years tape (the mighty Bristolian atmospheric crusty gloom merchants are back with just over 20 minutes of misery.)
Better Reality / Dad – Split 7” (Manchester/Sheffield’s Better Reality deliver three tracks of their now trademark posi raw punk, whilst Merseyside’s PV punks belt out 3 straight up blastbeat bangers.)
Also, on Friday we helped release Spillage’s first vinyl release (S/T 7”). It’s four tracks of political miserable hardcore. The band are running a raffle to win one of their test presses, with all money donated to Black Minds Matter UK. You have until Wednesday 24th June to enter (more details on their Facebook page).
It seems like ages since we had a new release (our last one came out April last year!) but we’re really pleased to say that our Bristolian brethren Atterkop have just released their new LP ‘Out Of The Cradle Endlessly Rocking’ and it’s a superb follow up to their 1st record Liber Abaci.
Guest vocals including Bridget Hart, Ian Perkins, Rollo the dog and Otto the cat. Recorded by Ian at Worse Than Bad and mixed/mastered by Matty Pumpkin at MOA.
Also co-released by Pumpkin Records and Abracadaboum.
You can stream and download from their bandcamp here and we are selling them for £6.00 plus postage here.
We’re super pleased to announce that we picked up our copies of the brilliant new split between Rivers Run Dry and Zerum last weekend. In our opinion it’s probably the best recorded output by both bands so far.
Zerum offer up three tracks of sludgy crusty political hardcore (they also feature ex-members of one our favourite bands – Biała Gorączka!) that are for some reason titled in binary code. Rivers Run Dry have offered up 6 tracks of their trademark epic crusty d-beat with fierce political content. It also comes on really cool marbled vinyl in a variety of nine different colours as seen below. You can check out Rivers Run Dry’s side here and Zerum’s side here. All colours are available on our Big Cartel site for £5.00 + p&p.
We’ve received our copies of the amazing vinyl release of 70cm³ Of Your Chest’s at first Chaos came to be. It looks amazing and sounds even better, 6 tracks of gloom laden yet upbeat epic hardcore on stunning white splatter vinyl.
You can pick one up for £6.00 plus postage here.
And you can stream & download it (it costs 1€) here.
Bristolian D-beat gloom merchants This Ends Here are back again with a split tape with Boston (not Boston)’s crusty hardcore collective Wolfbeast Destroyer.
This is This Ends Here’s first recorded output since they decided to exclusively play songs over the eight minute mark, contributing the brilliant ‘Sharp Elbows, Sharp Knees’ to this tape which is about twenty minutes long…. Whilst Wolfbeast Destroyer deliver 6 tracks of brutal, pummeling d-beat infused crusty hardcore.
You can pick one up for £3.00 plus postage here and hear/download it here.
Burnt Cross are back once again with what will most likely be their last release, a 12″ compilation of their last four 7″s (plus a couple of unreleased ones) that comes with a huge 65cm x 65cm poster (kinda like the original Crass records used to).
Once again all recorded totally DIY in Rob’s Bedroom on an 8 track.
19 tracks on black vinyl. You can pick up a copy for a fiver plus postage on our webstore and you can check the record out online here (Youtube link).
The much anticipated debut 12″ from Holiday is finally here! Everybody’s favourite grumpy funsters are back with ten tracks of personally political melodic gruff punk on oregano green vinyl. They’re also hitting up France & Spain over the next couple of weeks (you can check the event page on Facebook for more details) but they’re kicking off in Bristol tonight.
You can pick one up here (it’s £6.00 plus postage) and download/stream the whole record for free here.
