WALLS OF JERICHO
with devils amongst us all (2006/TRUSTKILL)
METALCORE. From the motor-city of Detroit comes the most savage sound in modern music. Few bands possess as much metallic venom in their guitars while retaining the grit and concrete fury of hardcore in their sounds as WALLS OF JERICHO. The music is propelled by the inhuman roar of Candace Kucsulain, who regardless of her gender is one of the most energetic front people in heavy music to grab a mic. WALLS OF JERICHO are everything presently missing in hardcore, the earnestness, the conviction, the audible hunger to deliver a thought in the most uncompromising way possible. "with devils amongst us all".
männer in rot (2010/ROOKIE)
PUNK-ROCK. Nach 19 Jahren Pause, nur unterbrochen von wenigen legendären "einmaligen Reunionshows", gibt es hier endlich neues Songmaterial zu hören. Neben dem Titeltrack "männer in rot" präsentieren uns die Lauterer "der betze brennt" und "1991 (lautern 3, barcelona 1)", also thematisch ganz dem 1.FC Kaiserslautern gewidmet. Kommt mit MP3 Download Code!
an open letter to the scene (2010/ARCTIC RODEO)
SINGER/SONGWRITER. The debut solo album from the legendary Walter Schreifels (GORILLA BISCUITS, QUICKSAND, RIVAL SCHOOLS). From stripped-down acoustic meditations like the album's title track to Schreifels' psychedelic-tinged cover of AGNOSTIC FRONT's "society's sucker" and an intricately arranged version of his CIV classic "don't gotta prove it", "an open letter to the scene" is arguably the 1st project Schreifels has ever recorded that manages to incorporate all of his diverse influences and recontextualize them into a cohesive whole. Vinyl version includes 1 additional bonus track.
INDIE/ELECTRONIC-POP. From the opening notes swelling with electronic organs and driving drum beats, to infectiously breezy melodies, bass grooves and vocal harmonizing, this album leaves the listener with a lasting impression of satisfaction. In the words of WAMPIRE - it's sexy, sounds huge, and by all means should be blamed for future babies. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
the hearse (2013/POLYVINYL)
INDIE/ELECTRONIC-POP. After forming WAMPIRE, Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps steadily began to make a name for themselves in the same Portland scene that has produced labelmates UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA. The a-side "the hearse" serves as the perfect tintroduction for those unfamiliar with the band - its opening notes swelling instantly with electronic organs over a driving drum beat. The b-side, a cover of KRAFTWERK's "das modell", showcases another side of the duo by cloaking the original's industrial-synth-pop with a murkier aura underscored by chugging guitars. Limited to 500 on purple vinyl.
american wank (2010/RESCUED FROM LIFE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Japanese noise punk via the UK! Can you imagine DISORDER and CONFUSE having a glue-sniffing session and the survivors picking up some instruments and heading off to a studio? Have you ever had a mental picture of early THE SWANKYS and early CHAOS U.K. competing against each other over who has the nosiest guitar sound?" This one contains all tracks from the "weapons of musical destruction" 8", "lost in france..and drunk" 7", split LP and "the very best of hero" LP.
knock one out (2013/SPHC)
HARDCORE-PUNK. "knock one out" is the 3rd LP by these lovely arseholes. A little less noisy than past efforts, and a little more silly. Three English gentlemen, ex-members of all your favorite UK bands, goof off and have a bit of pervy old guy fun. But despite all the silliness, they manage to write both really catchy mid-tempo snotty punk anthems and really chaotic, harsh short/fast/loud hardcore numbers that capture their noise spirit. Obviously to be filed next to your SWANKYS records, but THE WANKYS have found their own noise-punk niche in the past few years, developing their own unique sound, style, and attitude unlike any other.
the very best of hero (2008/LA VIDA UN MUS)
HARDCORE-PUNK. THE WANKYS from Kyushu Island, UK surprised all with their already classic "noise punk" 7". Having served their time in countless UK bands (DIRGE, ARCASM, E.N.T. etc.) this trio surely knew what they were trying to do when heading to the studio. "the very best of hero", their 1st full-length, is a masterpece of noise-punk. 14 tracks of trebble ladden madness that will knock you down. The recipe goes like this: an insane amount of guitar saturation, primitive drumming, bass lines driving the song, lyrics about subject as deep as glue sniffing. This LP is a must for fans of GAI, early CONFUSE, DISORDER or LEBENDEN TOTEN. Not available for all that melody punks out there!
weapons of musical destruction (2010/LA VIDA ES UN MUS)
HARDCORE-PUNK. THE WANKYS 2nd studio album finally sees it's release on the bands preferred format hard vinyl. This incredible violent recording includes 8 songs. This is the musical equivalent of pissing in an electricity socket and sees the band blending their noise attacks with incredibly catchy punk-rock songs, all wrapped up with their trademark guitar fuzz attack. "the wank" magazine contains much non-sense including band history, lyrics, guitar tab, photos, comic strip and even a dot-to-dot penis drawing. This lavish package is all encased in an envelope.
