New In Distro : LOST LEGION demo tape / BRICK ASSASSIN 12" / ROGUE TROOPER - Boots on the Ground 7"

LOST LEGION - demo tape
A couple of idiots playing music drunk for no reason. Two tracks leaked last year (to be released soon on 'Oi! the Tape' on Crowd Control Media) that set the hype machine in motion.
This tape includes four new tracks that riff less on the Templars and Boot Party vein of the earlier songs and veers more towards the style of Chiswick punk, Condemned 84, and Ultima Thule. Oi! music of the future must certainly be the Oi! music of the past.

Chicago's Midway neighborhood hosts an airport and hundred's of locked cells for the working-class communities doing time on Chicago's south side. Brick Assassin come from Midway, a band of resilient goons growing up big and ugly, raised on a diet of industrial slime nuclear-green hot dog relish in a dense smog of dying industries. After a well-received debut 7" and a split 7" with Minneapolis's Victory, Brick Assassin have weathered various storms but have come back stronger than before, surviving line-up changes and label shifts. Their new LP is a series of complaints about union bosses, Nazi skins, and trying to feed a family in while the atmosphere smothers your lungs. Midway Mutant Crew.

ROGUE TROOPER - Boots on the Ground 7"
Massachusetts has a rich history of bad decisions, from witch trials to the recent influx of opioid addiction. It's easy to think that kids probably don't have to try too hard to find trouble, but I guess dumbing yourself down with religion or drugs doesn't work for everyone and some kids need a different cult to join. It's this gap where Amherst's Rogue Trooper found their home, running hard in the other direction of their peers but still staunchly staking their claim as Bay Staters; they're the younger brother that'll never live up to the potential you see in them.
Their music flexes an American muscle hard and you can hear the influence from the early Bruisers singles, Uprise comp-tracks, and the more garage-y cuts from the Wretched Ones records, but there's still a bit of that English influence from the Hammer Records catalog and that lends the band a little more melody than the founding fathers of American Oi. Their demo last year was the best new Oi recording I'd heard in quite some time and this 7" blows it away.

G.L.O.S.S - Trans Day of Revenge

The second EP from the queer hardcore punk band G.L.O.S.S. conveys a violent and severe world, one in which the only reasonable and intelligent responses are anger and aggression.

VAASKA - Futuro Primitivo

Rejoice, VAASKA have returned with more hard punk pounders for the masses! Originally pressed in a limited amount by VOX POPULI for the band's Japanese tour in the winter of 2016, Beach Impediment is delighted to make the latest release from Austin's finest available domestically for the hardcore punk fanatics that know the real deal and for those that would like to become more educated in the field. "FUTURO PRIMITIVO" features five tracks of the top notch D-Beat punk with blazing guitar leads and ferociously belted out lyrics in Spanish that you have come to expect from these guys over the years. Each record comes in a felt based glue pocket sleeve adorned with the stark black and white art of the great Brian Miller that has been the band's visual trademark since the beginning.

ARM RACE - New Wave Of British Hardcore LP

ARMS RACE unleash their debut album after a well-received 6-track demo in 2013 and a 6-track 7" EP in 2014 on Quality Control HQ and Painkiller. Arms Race arrived on the scene fully formed with their powerful and gnarly UK-meets-USA hardcore: their signature sound of a vocalist chewing on glass is backed by one of the most solid rhythm sections in HC these days, and the guitar work adds a metallic element making the whole sound gigantic while keeping the ugliness and aggression to the max. NWOBHC is a statement of no-frills hardcore that is not scared to reach out to different corners of the punk and metal world.
New Wave Of British Hardcore was recorded by James Atkinson at Mutiny Studios and sounds bright and powerful. It comes housed in a sleeve designed by Andrew Fletcher with extra artwork by Nicky Rat who doubles as bass player. There is a download code, and a poster insert.

SEPTIC DEATH - Need So Much Attention 

Limited green-marbled vinyl! The first Septic Death release (1984) is also the very first Pusmort release and showcased a great collection of art. The front cover by Pushead, the back cover by Chet 'XNO' Darmstaedter. Septic Death (Boise, Idaho) was a hardcore punk band fronted by artist Brian "Pushead" Schroeder on vocals. Septic Death's music became a major influence on bands like Integrity, Citizens Arrest, Infest, and many other bands tied to the hardcore punk, thrashcore, crust punk etc. scenes. The band played only a few shows during its active years (1981 to 1986), mostly in Boise, Idaho. Tracklist: Sweat Of A Nightmare Core Of Reality Quit Child Mental Cancer Gore Story Control Advantage Never Trust Fear Hardware Negative Threat

S.S.DECONTROL - The Kids Will Have Their Say

SS Decontrol (a.k.a. SSD) were "one of the first Boston hardcore bands and the core of the infamous "Boston Crew and the "narrow minds who think the narrow way"(mentioned in the liner notes to This is Boston Not LA of Modern Method Records). Their hardcore testament were The Kids Will Have Their Say 12"(1982, XClaim!/Dischord Rec.s), and Get it away LP (1983, XClaim!), then the change of their name to SSD brought some changes to the straight edge beliefs of band members and music wise they walked a new music direction. 2015 press on Suicida Records

New In Distro : KOMINTERN SECT - D'une Même Voix

From Oi Of America Blog
I have not been this anxious and nervous for what a record was going to hold since..... Fuck, I don't even remember. well over 25 years ago Komintern Sect was one of the bands that introduced me to French Oi! / Punk and even more then that, they opened me up to a world of bands and sounds. Even though I did not understand a fucking word they said It was the bands energy and attitude that translated their songs in to my heart and soul. I also have to say their early records turned me on to the raw lo-fi sound that a lot of foreign bands and some note worthy bands from the good ol' U.S.A. would be influenced by.

So the question that loomed over me is what was this record that I wanted so bad was going to sound like? I was nervous because it has been 30 years since their last record? Fucking killer is the answer to that question! A few things stuck out to me the first time I listen to this record. First: The production quality is far superior to the bands other records and this will spread their sound to those who need a cleaner production quality. This cranked up production does not take away from the bands power or their def use of melody, it just enhances it.
Second: You hear Louis from Lions Law guitar style and I love how it works with the rhythm section and Carl's still power packed vocals.
Third: And maybe the most pleasant surprise, is this record does not miss a step in the quality of the song writing or in the delivery of these songs. The bands classic sound is fully intact. Take the use of haunting choruses and melodic guitar solo's that ache and bend in to your soul are on the amazing "Unite".

I do not care if you hate foreign language Oi! you need to listen to this record if not for any other reason then to hear were so many bands of yesterday and today were influenced. The album has five new, original songs and finishes with a cover "Pour La Gloire" originally done by Camera Silens. Benoit from Camera Silens plays guitar on this song. Komintern Sect pays homage to another French band with this standout cover. There is not a single miss step on this record. All Killer and no filler comes to mind when I think about how to describe this album. I keep listening to this record over and over and all I am left with is wanting more.

New in distro - THE CONEHEADS - LP#1


The NWI scene is on another level to the rest of humanity. Oh yes, it's going to get weird once you put this shit on. Coneheads are a basement punk band who have decided to douse themselves in creepy circus riffs, robot meets alien vocals with science-fiction wackyness. Keep in mind, it's still punk and damn catchy! Who said weird can't be catchy?

They sound like DOW JONES AND THE INDUSTRIALS on speed or a more manic DEVO. This would perfectly fit in 1982 but I doubt they were born before 92. Major points for historical awareness! The rhythm barrels along while solos are interspersed at six second intervals, desperately played like a blur between a Jerry Lee Richard piano solo and a fevered banjo picker who lives in an Appalachian cave.

It's hard to find the line between cheap gimmick and true weirdness sometimes, but this one shows that line with every spin. This band is highly addictive and leaves you stunned!

New in distro - DEAD HERO - Seguimos en pie demo

This is the French pressing of the DEAD HERO demo tape. DEAD HERO is a female-fronted punk rock oi band with members of SECTA SUICIDA from Bogota, Colombia. Think classic punk and oi like THE EXPELLED, ONE WAY SYSTEM, and THE LAST RESORT with their own Colombian twist. Great stuff.

New in distro : No Time / Mundo Muerto / Short Days

You'll Get Yours LP cover art
NO TIME - You'll Get Yours LP

Pittsburgh's NO TIME are back with a follow up full length to their debut 7"

on SFU. YOU'LL GET YOURS features 11 new songs in the Oi/Hardcore vein done with perfection. This is one of the best LPs I've heard in a while. 

SHORT DAYS - Bleak City Ep 

Another great record from theses punk from Lille

Great songs in the best melodic punk, mastered by North London Bomb Factory , a sign of quality.

MUNDO MUERTO - Entre El Kaos LP - 10€ 

Mundo Muerto comes from California and delivers catchy, up-tempo hardcore punk. They have released a tape and two 7'' and this is their first lp with eleven dynamite punk hymns. Fast, tight, somewhere between the usual latino hardcore of the california scene and the spanish punk of the 80's, something like modern Eskorbuto, or something like Appendix flerting with Peligro social. Nice distorted guitars without being noisy, the vocals are great, just what you want to go on with your filthy life. Sounds like being recorded especially for gigs. I can imagine dozen of punks attack the singer only to shout some words on the mic. I can see "Ciegos al poder" or "Dias oskuros" be on your next car cd compilation. Ace...
