A horrible hack

Limp Wrist - 'Facades' LP

added by Alex Deller on Thursday June 29 2017 in Pre-orders

Limp Wrist have been dining out on the same songs for bloody ages, so it's nice to know there's a new LP on the way. Stateside you can pre-order it from Martin himself, Europeans can tap up LVEUM. Bit more blurb: "Limp Wrist brings you 11 new trax of complete punk faggotry, not for the weak at heart and never will be. Comes with 40 page booklet containing lyrics, photos, and submissions from invited artists. EEEWWW Don’t Touch It!"

High-Vis - 'I' 7"

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday June 28 2017 in New Releases

London post-punk band High-Vis have a 7" out. Here's what the label says: "The worst/best description I've heard is Joy Division played by Oasis, though the band prefer Masshysteri playing songs in the style of The Chameleons with a Scouse singer. Either way two fantastic songs that will punch your teeth out."

Whipping Post - 'Spurn Point' LP

added by Alex Deller on Monday June 26 2017 in New Releases

Whipping Post are a good, new-ish band who play ugly, belligerent hardcore. I should really have reviewed their demo, but in all honesty I've just been rather pathetic. Anyway. They have an album out later in the year. It's called 'Spurn Point' and will be released by Whip It! Records. Check out three tracks from it via the Bandcamp link below.

Krimewatch s/t 7"

added by Alex Deller on Thursday June 22 2017 in New Releases

Static Shock have released a 7" from Krimewatch, who just played some gigs this side of the pond. The label says: "New York City's Krimewatch are one of the most exciting bands to emerge from hardcore in the last year. The five tracks on this EP are a combination of Japanese punk and early NYHC; keeping it simple with shouted vocals (in both Japanese and English) and driving beats. This 7" is the bands first recordings, now remastered and pressed on vinyl to coincide with their just completed UK / Euro tour."
