Dancing on a ledge

Recent distro additions.


KALTE LUST from France brings us this dark and moody, female fronted 12". This has a great post punk feel with melodic vocals, inspired by bands like Siouxie & Banshees. Wholesale available, get in touch if interested. 
French import.








"The Fuck Geez first formed in Osaka, Japan in 1982, taking inspiration from '77 UK punk bands as well as Japanese hardcore bands of the era. The band then relocated to Maizuru city, Kyoto, Japan in 1984. They first debuted with the "Cut It Off" flexi in 1983 followed by the "Zzz........" flexi in 1985, "Punk Rock de...." 7" and "Not For Sale" flexi in 1986 all on the MCR Co. label. "Here's The Fuck Geez" 7" was released in 1987 on Jungle Hop International (France). The Fuck Geez also released a studio and live album in 1989 entitled "No Way To Escape" and appeared on many compilations of flexi, 7", LP, CD and video in 1980s on labels from the US, France, Finland, and more. While their sound progressed somewhat over time, the music retained a distinctly Japanese sound and style that the country was well known for. This release contains 14 songs by the Fuck Geez and also comes with a digital download code for a Fuck Geez live show. The LP jacket and insert come in full color and remind me of the Sex Pistols in their style. Fuck Geez vocalist Yumikes remains very active in the punk scene today running the great MCR Company label." -Social Napalm

Raging new 5 song hardcore punk demo from Chicago's VIOLENT END, featuring members of VILE GASH and RAW NERVE among others. This demo is a great mixture of rawness and power.

Demos collection "box set" including the "Peace, They Hate The Very Word" demo (2002) and the "No Flesh Shall Be Spared" demo (2003). Comes as two cassettes in a nice DVD box. Awesome band, this is a great way to have these demos if you missed out. Probably the best US d-beat band from this last decade.







Debut 7" of this raw hardcore punk group from Montreal. Featuring members of the great AFTER THE BOMBS. This is more wild sounding with a straight forward attack.
