Alter (2003/SUB POP)
Neues Album des Trios aus San Francisco. Fuer erstaunlich straighte Kost. Schon das Cover sieht irgendwie spirituell aus und auch musikalisch geht es sehr oft duester, ruhig zu, dazu traegt in erster Linie das Piano bei, das bei den meisten der 12 Stuecke zum Einsatz kommt. Dennoch kommen lautere Passagen nicht zu kurz, allerdings werden diese immer als Hoehepunkt eines Stueckes eingesetzt. Auch textlich wird die oskur poetische Schiene gefahren. Erinnert mich oft an NICK CAVE oder die FLAMING STARS.
bodies need rest (2008/CONSPIRACY)
POST-ROCK. "bodies need rest" is a posthumous collection of unreleased and rare PLEASURE FOREVER recordings. At long last, this album consists of 4 cover songs, plus 4 rare tracks forming a comprehensive timeline from the band's beginning.

elephant men/not over (2013/KATORGA WORKS)
NEW-WAVE/POST-PUNK. Featuring the vocalist of 9 SHOCKS TERROR, Cleveland's PLEASURE LEFTISTS bring dreamy and raw new-wave reminiscent of early NEW ORDER.
ELECTROPOP.

tides of change (2009/BACHELOR)
GARAGE-PUNK. This is the 1st LP release from Bachelor Records.

Now it is your turn as music expert and scenester to buy this gem!
s/t (2012/CRICKET CEMETERY)
HARDCORE. PLIANT hails from amherst, Massachusetts and Washington DC. The PLIANT 7" is a crusted, nail protruding battering ram of a record. Charging guitar and bass backed by relentless pounding drums and quick blasts. HIS HERO IS GONE and FROM ASHES RISE inspired bludgeoning brilliance. This 7" will turn heads - enjoy. Members of DEATHRATS, STATE VIOLENCE, HUBRIS, SKVLT and TWERPS. Limited to 300 copies.
PLOT TO BLOW UP THE EIFFEL TOWER, THE
love in the fascist brothel (2005/REVELATION)
POST-PUNK. THE PLOT TO BLOW THE EIFELTOWER has built a reputation for leaving people cheated or impregnated with obsession. And now THE PLOT TO BLOW THE EIFELTOWER are going to turn the world on it's ears. "love in the fascist brothel" has that magical quality that drives people on to the stage and into the sweaty dance pit every night. Seizing on that quality, THE PLOT TO BLOW THE EIFELTOWER has pasted together an all-smart version of punk using spit, attitude, and sexuality.
marching band (2013/JUMP START)
PUNK-ROCK. From the boundless joy of "human 2000" to the rage, frustration, and teeth gritting determination of "falling deeply", to the raucous affection of "get low", it's clear that PLOW UNITED has expanded their reach without dulling their edge. "marching bBand" isn't a comeback... it's a never-left. For fans of early '90s punk-rock ala Look Out Records. Colored vinyl includes a digital download and is limited to 500 copies.
sniping pigs (2013/SIX WEEKS)
GRINDCORE. PLUTOCRACY was a grindcore band from California and a major player in the West-Bay underground fast music scene. They existed from 1988-1993 and then reformed in 1998 to record this album to honor former bass player Dan "Zodiac Killer" who had sadly passed. This is a long-awaited re-pressing of this album, unfortunately following the death of another of the band's grindfathers, "Stinkweed Malone". Limited edition of 500 copies.
police war (2009/LOUD PUNK)
PUNK-ROCK. THE POGO's 2nd release and the last of the band's releases to feature Cyanide Kane on guitar. This 7" contains 3 solid and ripping pogo punk tracks. Pressed onto lime green vinyl. If you liked their previous 7" then this one is bound to blow you away. It's harder, faster!
POINT OF RECOGNITION
day of defeat (2002/GUIDELINE)
HARDCORE. "day of defeat" is the hardcore album of 2002 that will crush all previous thoughts and opinions of southern california's POINT OF RECOGNITION. After going through various member changes, POINT OF RECOGNITION have created a record that is sure to be in the top ranks of all heavy records! "day of defeat" is the bands 3rd full-length release and the first release on Guideline Records, licensed from Facedown Records. Now featuring a member of NO INNOCENT VICTIM, this is faster and heavier than any of their previous releases. A must for anyone who is a fan of HATEBREED and MERAUDER.
what do you want me to do? (2013/UGLY POP)
PUNK-ROCK. These early Vancouver punks released some pretty great records over their short career, but this 1978 debut will probably remain the classic 45 they'll be best known for. Nothing fancy, art-damaged or vicious here, just two near-perfect blasts of loud, snappy, melodic punk that's inspired countless bands since. Certainly not the rarest or most obscure record, but one that deserves to be readily available to anyone with a taste for quality punk-rock.
POISON ARROWS, THE
newfound resolutions (2011/FILE 13)
POST-ROCK. Sophomore release from Chicago's THE POISON ARROWS. Featuring former members of DON CABALLERO and ATOMBOMBPOCKETKNIFE, with appearances from THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION, DISAPPEARS, PONYS members, this 70min. unthinkable drama unfolds with a dark swagger. Every track was completed as a chapter in an overarching tale of lives falling apart, then reconstruction, then reflection, and finally a vow to move forward. With bass guitar as the lead instrument, THE POISON ARROWS don't skimp on the additional details - their signature bass playing is more inspiring than ever. Drums are nothing short of thunderous and keyboards are at their most abstract.
the violent years (2007/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. "the Violent Years" 7" is POISON CONTROL's 1st and in all likelihood, their last release. Though this Boston band has already called it quits, the 4 tracks are sure to leave folks wanting more. Featuring ex-CUT THE SHIT members. POISON CONTROL offers a solid mix of mid-tempo US-hardcore with a serious REGULATIONS and early Southern-California feel.
best of poison idea (2006/POISON IDEA)
