The Pastoral - Not Rustic - World Of Their Greatest Hits
Pitiless first-person explorations of toxic masculinity...art-school-honky-tonk-style! The Teasers' debut 10" LP from '95, one of the most memorable and perverse and improbably hard-hitting garage-punk (or whatever you wanna call it) albums of its era...and the starting-gun for a long-career of button-pushing…
I Was A Mod Before You Was A Mod
Television Personalities
Burger Records
“Television Personalities is The Smiths for people who aren’t cunts” - © mate of mine, circa 2008. Burger Records 2010 cassette reissue of the '97 belter. Bleak echoey psychedelic pop in the vein of The Painted Word, but more (!) brittle and…
Are We Nearly There Yet?
Television Personalities
Overground
“Christ, Pete Doherty does 3 weeks in Wandsworth and he's the new Johnny Cash! Guess I must be the new James Brown/Albert [sic] Lee/Brian Wilson put together!” As well as being one of the most heroically sloppy and destitute-sounding entries…
Detailed Twang
The Door and The Window
Overground
Back in stock...the 1980 DIY / improv / ultra-minimal post-punk classic featuring Nag (who Paco informs us was the inspiration for the Cabs' 'Nag Nag Nag'), Bendle and disillusioned punk progenitor Mark Perry....scrappy and surreal as anything but still with…
True Love Never Dies
Ahoe-Ahoea
Bunkerpop
Back in stock! Type ‘Ahoe-Ahoea’ into google and it just thinks you’re an illiterate trying to write “shoes shoes”.  Proof, if it were needed, that this supremely drug/art-damaged thug-punk unit have never been a household name. That’s what you get…
Resolutionary
Vivien Goldman
Staubgold
Finally back in print - Staubgold's RIVETING rundown of Viv Goldman's rickety, teabag-stained dub-pop, a small but perfectly formed body of work centered of course around '81's 'Launderette' single - best ever song about an awkward encounter with annoying ex-boyf, bashed…
Saunetic Fraction
Unovidual & M.NOMIZED
Peripheral Minimal
Ultra-alienated, minimal man-machine killers, 85-vintage, from the duo of Henk Wallays and Michel Madrange. Recommended for fans o’ DZ Electric, Dirk Ivers, early Esplendor G., etc. Some bangers on here. Also nice to see this sorta tackle being reissued on…
Time On Earth
Slender
La Vida Es Un Mus
If there was one record we wished we'd released in the year of 2019 - it be this!! The debut LP of this New York squad is a CATACLYSMIC punk obituary that basks as readily in the causeways of the…
All In Good Time
Eddy Current Suppression Ring
Castle Face
Shouldn't work after all this time. But it does. Unhurried nggggggh from start to finish. 'Our Quiet Whisper' is just sublime. “It is impossible to denyno one sounds like Eddy CurrentI was hooked from riff oneand I was lucky enough…
Double Bugger
Itchy Bugger
Low Company
Nggggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Supremely hungover, red-eyed-and-can't-quite-be-arsed but utterly LIFE-AFFIRMING bedroom/loner-pop masterpiece from the Itchy Bugger. May this record bless your miserable existence like it has ours. Songs that somehow combine punk concision and psychedelic whimsy with a fluency accessible only to THE…
