LOTS of new titles coming out between now and late February and all are now available for preorder.  Just a friendly reminder for US buyers that you can select the $6 light packet shipping option for up to 4 x LPs assuming you can be patient with your order.  This option involves me shipping from media mail which only happens about once a month when I cross into the US.

TENEMENT the blind wink LP (DY265) 
The repress of Tenement’s second album, The Blind Wink courtesy of Deranged Records.  Their first album Napalm Dream was heavy on the high octane catchy punk, and definitely great but The Blink Wink is where the band found their confidence and compiled a very distinct and mixed sounding album’s worth of material.  From the Replacements, the Descendents, and the Lemonheads, the influences are obvious and the delivery spot on. 
I am not sure how a band that is so deeply rooted in hardcore punk ends up creating such a diverse and strong album so early in their ‘career’ but Tenement have managed to comfortably move beyond the confines of the punk song and keep us captivated.

TOTAL ABUSE excluded LP (DY278)
The Total Abuse has been a band since 2007.  They have released three LPs and two 7"s, and they are considered one of the creators of a rare mixture of the old school hardcore punk sound with 80s industrial / noise aesthetics.  Many bands have tried to copy their sound and vibe but no one has been able to emulate the pure hellish intensity of Total Abuse.

Excluded is their 4th full length LP and was recorded in Austin,TX at Ohm recording studio and produced by David Williams.  After the pure noise sludge mess of Prison Sweat the band decided to take their songs to a different place by focusing on pure riffs.  Each song batters the listener down with raging buzz saw guitar riffs and unadulterated heaviness.  Total Abuse have always been huge fans of true guitar gods like Nirvana and Slayer and here it is most apparent.  These new Total Abuse tracks are still filthy and as noise drenched as ever, but is an album with a stealth and form unlike the three before it.  Excluded is an album about survival, an album about identity, an album (as always) about obsession.  Excluded is Total Abuse at their best!

PRESSING ON no defeat no capitulation 12” (DY282)
Portland’s based Pressing on put out a small amount of tapes earlier this year, which was more of a rough version of the totally remastered and mixed know known as the “No defeat, no capitulation” record, and boy did it turn out louder and clearer then i would’ve imagined. Pressing On consists of members of the late and great Talk Is poison, as well as from Ashes Rise, and the still going Raw Nerves. Expect nothing less then total anthemic and defiant hardcore with all around great musicianship, and strong sense of melody in that great Talk Is poison style, yet holding their own. A clenched fist pumper for sure.

Available in both black vinyl and red vinyl

OAF s/t 7” (DY281)
Debut 7” from newish Vancouver hardcore band. Evil riffs, raw tone, driving beats and manic vocals. Expressing the stress anxiety and rage of living in an insane world. Stuck in a web of violence and oppression, on the bottom of a hierarchy where capital is the sole representation of power and influence. Seeing the game for what it is and understand that in a dying world you must CHEAT 2 SURVIVE.

CRETINS meat 7” (DY280) 
CRETINS rear their ugly heads yet again with six new cuts of destructive hardcore punk on “Meat”.  This is a completely savage recording that harnesses the pure hatred of Poison Idea and depraved genius of Cleveland’s finest into one crushing EP. This is not the safe, easygoing, or experimental garbage that has crept into HC punk in recent years.  CRETINS’ approach here is simple - hard hitting and forceful songwriting with lyrics that espouse a clear distaste for humanity.  Executed much faster and tighter than previous material, if there’s one CRETINS release to end it all to, “Meat” surely wins out.

05.10.15 / TV FREAKS bad luck charms LP/CD & HELTA SKELTA beyond the black stump LP


TV FREAKS bad luck charms LP/CD
With a fistful of singles and two albums to hide behind, Hamilton, ON’s TV FREAKS spew up a miasma of contradictions for their third LP: angular yet liquid, chunky but with gravy, and like a sour grape, hard to keep down - it’s the aptly titled Bad Luck Charms. A trio of underground rock royalty brought the album to life, with production from Dallas Good (THE SADIES, ELEVATOR, THE FILTHY GAZE OF EUROPE), mixing from Don Pyle (SHADOWY MEN ON A SHADOWY PLANET, CRASH KILLS FIVE), and mastering from Mikey Young (TOTAL CONTROL, EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING) - TV Freaks’ new record is art made by near-descendants of early man and as intricate and nuanced as a Biblical fresco, painted with a boulder instead of a brush. Pummelling primal rhythm blocks battle with snaky guitars and static-shock bass as a man cries out and rips his own shirt off, with nothing more to offer but his own flesh. Is our luck about to turn? US customers, you can select the $6 option if you can wait a few extra weeks for your order.

HELTA SKELTA beyond the black stump LP
Helta Skelta is the newest face of Australian punk - there I said it. Granted they already have an album and a few singles under their belt, Beyond the Black Stump sounds very different from previous outputs and believe this is the album people have been waiting for them to write. It’s hands-down their strongest batch of songs, and the recording does them complete justice. The various elements of this album have always been there, swirling in the soup of varied influences and ideas these guys soak in, but this album smacks of a band getting its ducks in a row. In particular, Jon’s vocals have mellowed from an earlier, more aggressive hardcore delivery into a brilliantly snarky, deadpan, sardonic drawl that draws easy comparison to EDDIE CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING or X. The guitars are tight, choppy and bright, the bass and drums pin the beat down with straightforward but rock-solid rhythms.

19.08.15 / Pleasure Leftists ‘the woods of heaven’ LP

It’s with great pride that we offer ‘the woods of heaven’ by the Pleasure Leftists. Full album stream is available here
The Woods of Heaven is the band’s first proper LP after a string of EPs and singles through labels such as Katorga Works, Fan Death Records, and its current home, Deranged Records. This album features an aggressive tone with tense yet catchy songs such as “Cannon” and “Heaven’s Rocker.” Lead single “You You” is a perfect showcase of just how impressive a vocalist Haley Morris is—not only in her range but in her audible confidence, which propels every track like an engine motor.

Limited color vinyl and regular black vinyl are available to order.  Records have pressed but orders will not ship for another 3 weeks (when they arrive at the office).  thanks
