Lots of new records, and more on the way. I just added a number of new titles to the ‘pre-order’ section of the website. Most will be shipping in mid April. Again, most of these will not be shipping until MID April. Canada Post no longer offers surface mail to the USA and yes it does cost a little over $10 to ship one 12” to the US. That said, you can ship 3 x 12” for about $15. Still have the option of shipping surface to International locations but it can take 2-3 months to arrive. It’s cheaper but you have to be patient.
NEW RELEASES and REPRESSES and available at http://www.derangedrecords.com:
CULO my life sucks and I could care less LP (DY218)
‘‘Okay, 1st off, the LP is NOT called ‘The Return of Culo’, look at the spine of the LP for proof of that. But in a sense, its almost a return record since the guys took a good amount of time prepping it. This LP was recorded over a weekend in mid March 2012 with their man of choice Kevin up in Lansing MI. This is definitely not a concept record, but it can almost be called a ‘time and place’ record since the album is a reflection of everything in the band’s life when writing it, but what bands don’t? If you only loved the fast stuff the band has done before, that’s still present on tracks here but also the band offers more variety then ever before. To be blunt, the fast songs are faster, the mid tempo tracks are more punchy and the the rest are just downright catchy as hell. I see the ‘Ramones songs made ugly’ as a comparison nowadays made about a select few, and finally someone’s pulls it off, even though the boys go for their own thing but that certain band is a large influence. This is a true PUNK record. And damn John’s voice almost is an exact cross of Jerry and John Brannon, its so eerie the semblance. This album was just meant to happen and even if its release experienced a few delays, it’s a timeless record. Nothing was spared from the record down to the look, layout and quality and what you get sounds excellent. So sit back, grab something to drink (or supply to any other habit you may have) and enjoy all that is Culo.’’ from Nick Sick available in black, ltd yellow and ltd red vinyl

WHITE LUNG two of you b/w hunter 7” (DY230)
Hailing from Vancouver, B.C., high-energy punks White Lung pull references from every era of punk remaining unforgiving yet melodic. Their debut LP It’s the Evil (Deranged) was named Punk Album Of The Year by Exclaim! and their sophomore LP Sorry (Deranged) has managed to top the last.Spawned from East Vancouver’s dirty DIY Emergency Room scene, White Lung formed in 2006 with guitarist Kenneth joining in 2009. From the beginning they were road warriors, touring regularly, even contemplating selling their underwear just to get on the road (they eventually opted for the more practical route of saving up funds.) White Lung broke out of their incestuous local scene and brought their music across Canada and the US. They continue to tour fanatically, their live shows have been called, “effortlessly engaging and enigmatic, harnessing a controlled violence that managed to be passionate without going the least bit over-the-top” by Exclaim! Magazine. Available in black and ltd blue vinyl

The ferocious post-punk 5 piece bands, Eagulls based in Leeds, England are pleased to share their 5 track EP on Canada’s prestigious punk label Deranged. A few lucky folks have been able to catch the band’s European shows. The shows received high accolades as some of the most thrilling and visceral performances ever. EAGULLS has shared the stage with Iceage, Milk Music, Ceremony, and Fucked Up. The five tracks - “Coffin”, “Moulting”, “No If’s, No Buts”, “Cripple” and “Still Born”; Drawing from a wide variety of influences, EAGULLS manage to create something new, while still paying homage to classical punk.

CASANOVAS IN HEAT ruins 7” (DY221)
Casanovas In Heat are a punk band from Boston, MA. Formed in 2010, neighborhood chums, Davy & Con (also of MALE NURSES) decided to take a whack at high-energy, sweat-induced, melodic punk that they had been screwing around with since they were teenagers. They recruited fellow mavericks, Steve & Sean, to complete the dream team. Sparked by a wide-range of influences, the Casanovas want nothing more than to turn every day into a night, and every night into a crusade. A solid mix of the REPLACEMENTS and NAKED RAYGUN.

SPECTRES nothing to nowhere LP (DY222)
Spectres are a Post Punk band from Vancouver, B.C. originally formed largely as a studio only project by Brian Gustavson and Steve Hanker In Coombs, British Columbia. After self releasing several demos both Gustavson and Hanker relocated to Vancouver and brought Heather and Nathan Szilagyi in on Drums and Bass, and Zach Batalden in on second guitar. Heather Szilagyi would soon be replaced by Steve Gerenscer on drums, and after releasing two singles and touring the west coast with the Estranged Hanker would leave the band to be replaced by Tyler Pilling. 2010 saw the release of the band’s first full length LP, LAST DAYS which was followed in 2011 by a European tour and a split 7” with Arctic Flowers. NOTHING TO NOWHERE is the new album and the Spectres most ambitious to date, with ten new songs that push the band’s sound in new directions.

GIVE singles going confetti LP (DY220)
Every once in awhile the underground music world gives birth to a new band that reminds some of us why we’re still here in the first place. I’m not just talking about a breath of fresh air. I’m talking about being handed a ticket to ride a time machine, gaining telekenetic powers, and some Spock mind-meld-type shit. Absolute emotional possesion with mental and physical reprecussions. If you’ve ever witnessed their untouchable live set, read the suggestive/provocative lyrics to “I Am Love”, or admired their flower power aesthetic you know I’m talking about the mother lovin’ GIVE!
Singles Going Confetti is the second chapter in the history of this Washington, DC quintet and not un-like Aliens, Empire Strikes Back, or Batman Returns- the sequel is better than the original. These 11 songs collect all five of their singles released on Youngblood, PainKiller, Triple B, React, and Deranged Records with one brand new track exclusive to this record. Singles Going Confetti will be sure to pleasure, confuse, and grow on all of us until our head’s explode like a rose. Flowerheads come and take me over.

SYSTEMATIK s/t 12” (DY215)
Raw Hardcore from Vancouver B.C with a solid D-Beat backbone that doesn’t bore you to tears. Searing guitar work and a vocalist that can actually manage to convey his live frustration through recorded media, a rare feat. A distinct sound is hard to pinpoint. Influences range all over the place from Death Side to Poison Idea. Everyone will tell you something different, make your own judgement. Members of Unlearn and Vacant State. After the break-up of Unlearn the guitarist set out to get another project started as soon as possible, actually only within a few days he and Isaiah (vocalist) started working together. After a few months, a few bassists and a few drummers, a solid lineup developed and a demo was recorded in Dec.2011. The S/T LP was recorded in april.2012 in Portland with Stan Wright.

THE MEN immaculada CD format (DY223)
THE MEN’s self-released debut album originally limited to 500 copies now remastered and available on CD format for the first time. 8 songs of desperate, fuzzed out, riff laden punk/post-punk. This release really is an excellent mash of shoegaze and drony soundscapes with buried vocals beneath it all. Dreamy at times, with that Sonic Youth vibe.

TOP TENS so far:
TOP TEN EP - http://www.exclaim.ca
PREGNANCY SCARES 7” - The members of Pregnancy Scares have a stranglehold on Ottawa’s incredible punk scene. Between them, there are members of Crusades, the Steve Adamyk Band and Male Nurse, along with the Bruised Tongue imprint and the Ottawa Explosion festival. Even without any of those connections, however, the band would be just as affecting. Just take a look at their self-titled Deranged debut, a blistering six-song 7-inch packed with forward-thinking guitar riffs, a pummelling rhythm section and some throat-destroying shrieks. Now they can add releasing one of the year’s best hardcore records to their ridiculous resumes. (J.H.)

Tons of releases just around the corner…
Sweden’s TERRIBLE FEELINGS are touring the US for the remainder of June. Dates/location and some great posters can be found here:
The debut album by NEON PISS is now out and deserves your attention. “Playing music is a challenge…if you want it to be good. If you want your music to mean something, then it needs to speak to people the minute it hits their ears, and that is the challenge. NEON PISS have been crafting their debut vinyl release for nearly two years, but you get the impression that this was an inevitable result - a vision realized when these four dudes started playing punk together. Everything about NEON PISS sounds familiar, you know how you are going to feel as soon as you hear the opening swagger of “Tabula Rasa,” and they are every bit as good as you hope they are going to be. An LP full of songs that will make you feel instantly comfortable - you might have seen this movie, you’ve just never seen it acted quite this well, and the production this time around is sheer perfection. You are welcome to dismiss this as some more of that melodic punk that you are too cool to admit that you like, but you would be a fool. Yes, the songs are catchy, and yes NEON PISS will get stuck in your head and even sometimes put a spring in your step, but this shit is deep and these songs are as close to utter brilliance as I can ever remember hearing.” Robert Collins/terminal escape blogspot Tuneful melodic punk not unlike the OBSERVERS.
Enjoy it here - http://derangedrecords.bandcamp.com/album/neon-piss
High-energy manic punks, White Lung, are back with their sophomore release, Sorry. Their 2010 debut It’s the Evil earned them the title as the primary ambassadors for Canada’s emergent punk scene receiving critical acclaim from CHARTAttack to Maximum Rock n’ Roll to Terminal Boredom and their follow-up does not disappoint. McCorkell’s signature driving, off-kilter riffage paired with Way’s snarling and aggressive yet melodic vocals and the hard-hitting rhythmic duo of Grady Mackintosh on bass and Anne-Marie Vassilou on drums amp up White Lung’s position from ambassadors to the queens (and king) of Canandian noise rock.
Bowing to the inevitable need for comparison, according to Vice Magazine, “White Lung combine the feral energy of the Germs with the taut, wiry dynamics of the Wipers and have released a string of singles that keep improving in a bewilderingly exponential fashion.” Also present in their sound are golden era Kurt and Courtney, The Bags, and Rocket from the Crypt. This wealth of influences doesn’t mean the band’s sound is hard to pin-down. Written and recorded nearly simultaneously, Sorry manages to be both raw and complex, thanks to White Lung’s focus on cohesive writing.
Sorry may have been stressful to record, but it’s a joy to listen to. It signals a new era for White Lung, featuring denser more melodic songs that maintain the rough edge of their punk pedigree.
You can stream the album here: http://exclaim.ca/MusicVideo/ClickHear/white_lung-sorry_album_stream
Limited color vinyl and standard black are now available for order (ships 2nd week of June) through deranged online store
