ODDBALLS

Band:FRANK BLACK
Album:ODDBALLS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

The Bureau is proud to present the release of Frank Black’s "Oddballs", a collection of rare gems recorded between 1994 and 1997.

"Oddballs" is a special treat for fans and historians of Black’s epic career. In its initial release in 2000, it was only sold to the lucky folks who went to Frank Black and the Catholics shows. The album is currently out of print, which should be a crime.

'Oddballs’ was made during Frank Black’s transition from a solo studio magician to a purist who recorded everything totally live to 2-track (the method which would eventually be perfected by Frank Black and the Catholics). Many of Oddballs’ treasures are b-sides either from Black’s 1994 acclaimed studio masterpiece Teenager of the Year or from the almost-live, totally raw and powerful Cult of Ray from 1995. Though these oddities are obscure, they are in no way throwaways. Rather, Oddballs gives us a deeper glimpse into Black’s unique vision of rock n’ roll. There are moments of real poetic beauty in the very surreally rocking “Announcement” and in the punky adieu to actor John Candy “At the End of the World”. These are songs at the heart of who Frank Black is at heart: an oddball. Here he is most open and carefree about it. Not many people can yell “Hate Me! My jacket’s not right” at the top of their lungs and make us like them, yet somehow Frank Black knows how to do it.

Oddballs also features outtakes from that era including covers of Roxy Music’s “Remake/Remodel” and the Beau Brummels classic “Just a Little”.

 

 

LOS NUGGETZ

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:LOS NUGGETZ
Label:ROCK BEAT
Format:4CD BOX SET
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Los Nuggetz is a collection of 1960s hyper kinetic garage, punk, pop and psychedelic music from Mexico, Spain and Latin American countries. While the inspiration for this collection has been the enduring trend and influence of American garage and psych bands from the 60s, it is our hope that this will serve as an introduction to the amazing variety of Mexican and Latin American rock from that era.

A lot of this music has been extremely hard to find and often never reissued since the original vinyl release, with collectors combing record bins, garage sales, eBay with some actually traveling to the country of origin to find these vinyl rarities.

In this spectacular collection, you will find unique interpretations of Wooly Bully, Hey Joe, You Really Got Me, These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ and that’s just on the first CD. You’ll also be amazed at how many songs you recognize from their Spanish translations. The liner notes are comprehensive and extensive and to the best of our abilities, we identified the track, year of original release, group members, their instruments of choice, photos, LP jackets and background information on each group. You’ll also enjoy station checks and commercials, en Espanol,

This is not and historical or definitive collection. It is meant as a portal to discover more from the artists you hear on these discs. Here’s hoping you dig it!

This deluxe box set has 99 tracks on 4 CDs a deluxe 68 page book packed into a hard bound box.

 

 

REBELLION HYMNS

Band:MANS GIN
Album:REBELLION HYMNS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Initially formed by Erik Wunder, of COBALT fame, years ago while still living in Colorado, prior to relocating to New York, MAN’S GIN was a singer-songwriter outlet for Wunder and his acoustic guitar to create dark booze jams and murder ballads. Upon moving to New York (Brooklyn), Wunder would round up a MAN’S GIN lineup (upright bass/ebow player Josh Lozano and guitarist/pianist Scott Edward) and take the band’s sound up a notch. The result was their debut album “Smiling Dogs”, which was a sonic jaunt down America’s barren wastelands and garnered acclaim through the underground as well as the band becoming known in putting on an awesome live set every time they played a show (in and around the NY area and would also include, on the live front, a mini tour with Bruce Lamont of YAKUZA).

With their new album, “Rebellion Hymns”, MAN’S GIN have taken their sound to a much more epic plateau by creating a darker and more cinematic opus of grandeur, one that’s moving and emotionally charged, and presents the band’s musical palette in a much more expansive canvas than before. Recorded and produced by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Pelican, Cave In, Converge etc.) at Translator Audio in Brooklyn, NY and featuring photography and layout by Jimmy Hubbard, “Rebellion Hymns” sees Wunder and co. even bring in a formidable cast of musicians to join the ride. Such musicians that make a guest appearance on “Rebellion Hymns” are Jarboe (ex-SWANS), Wunder’s co-conspirator in COBALT Philip McSorley, Bruce Lamont of YAKUZA, and John LaMacchia of CANDIRIA, who all conspire with the MAN’S GIN crew to create an album of genuine wonder and epic beauty.

ANTI COSMIC TYRANNY

Band:AMSG
Album:ANTI COSMIC TYRANNY
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Canadas A.M.S.G. was formed in 2007 after mastermind/black metal crime lord Angelfukk Witchhammer had put his previous cult band Ouroboros to rest and following a served a prison sentence. When A.M.S.G. was conceived, the goal was to create sinister and dangerous black metal that conjures the ancient black metal spirit found in such legendary black metal bands such as Mortuary Drape, early Samael, early Rotting Christ, and Necromantia respectively. A.M.S.G. play a unique style of devil worship black metal that incorporates twisted and deranged mid-paced progressive wierded-out black metal and dark melancholic drear into its deathly sound picture.

Their debut album, Anti Cosmic Tyranny (which follows the bands debut EP The Principle Of Evil Becomes The Ideal Of The Promethean) is a testament of the real essence of black metal and is the audial interpretation of a Satanic ritual through its myriad of layered and subliminal sounds and noise, whispers and chants, which comprise, culminate and summon to form this black metal ritual of sonic invocation to honor the endless dark Aeon and the chaotic black light. Mapped out and written during Angelfukk Witchhammers most recent prison stint, Anti Cosmic Tyranny is an album that will make black metal dangerous again. An album not for the faint at heart or weak of mind and spirit. 

For fans of the ancient ways of black metal and such bands as Mortuary Drape, Samael (first two albums only), Rotting Christ (just the old stuff), Necromantia (just the old stuff), and also A.M.S.G. aligning themselves amongst the newer black metal guard alongside bands such as Negative Plane, Avichi, Cobalt, Weapon, and Deathspell Omega

 

 

SHADOWS.

Band:MORNE
Album:SHADOWS.
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Boston, Massachusetts’ MORNE formed in 2005 by Milosz Gassan (ex-Filth Of Mankind). After an initial demo created in 2008 and a split release with Warprayer, MORNE would release their debut full-length album “Untold Wait” in 2009 to critical praise in the underground (including an endorsement from Darkthrone themselves). It also helped MORNE’s reputation that they their guitarist Jeff Hayward was also in the mighty legendary sludge band GRIEF.

MORNE’s style of post-sludge/crust is an interesting interpretation of everything that tends to fall within such a genre. They create their cinematic and epic sound through unrelenting heaviness that is culminated from influences that also include doom metal, and classic rock, and create such an immense atmosphere also through influences such as progressive music and chamber music likewise.

This was showcased with their 2011 release “Asylum”, a sprawling exercise in colossal cinematic heaviness which would push MORNE’s sound even further than their “Untold Wait” debut. When Profound Lore released “Asylum” it helped bring more awareness to the band and with their new album “Shadows”, MORNE have defined a new sense of heaviness within their sound. With a darker, colder, and more dreary and introverted expression, “Shadows” is a crawling and bleak exercise in heaviness. More down-tuned yet more melodic and morose, “Shadows” takes MORNE’s initial sound blueprint and infuses it with a new sense of doom, with several moments on “Shadows” reminiscent of funeral/atmospheric doom akin to such bands as Evoken, Mournful Congregation, and the now defunct Morgion. Nonetheless, “Shadows” will prove MORNE’s distinctness in heavy music even more and will present itself as one of the most memorable underground heavy music releases of the year.

For fans of Neurosis, Isis, Tragedy, Evoken, Mournful Congregation etc.

Album:TWO OF YOU / THE HUNTER
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

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.

MY LIFE SUCKS AND I COULD CARE LESS

Band:CULO
Album:MY LIFE SUCKS AND I COULD CARE LESS
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

''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.''

THE LOST TAPES 1972-1974

Band:STEPSON
Album:THE LOST TAPES 1972-1974
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

About forty years in the making, and finally the world has the second Stepson album! Utilizing tapes preserved by drummer Len Fagan then transferred to digital and mastered by bassist Bruce Hauser, this fine collection of twelve songs is as close as the world will ever get to a real second Stepson album. Some is raw, some is embryonic, but it’s all prime stuff for fans to savor, reflecting the band’s "devil may care" attitude and rock ’n’ roll lifestyle. And just in case you don’t believe that the band liked to party, consider that the exact recording dates (and even some locations) have long been forgotten. To borrow an old adage: If you can remember Stepson, you weren’t there. Kicking off with a crunching riff by guitarist Joey Newman, ‘Danger Zone’ is the heaviest track Stepson ever cut, replete with an ominous atmosphere reflecting the seedy side of their native Los Angeles; ‘Streets of Alameda’ (1974) is an ode to vocalist Jeff Hawks’ hometown, featuring a liquor store holdup and a stolen Lincoln used as the getaway car. ‘Flesh & Blood’ is the only track on here that got an official release, albeit by ex-Smith belter Gayle McCormick as the title track to her second solo album, released by Decca in 1972. This version showcases the riff in full glory. And if you don’t believe that this riff is strong, consider that The Tonight Show band played it for approximately two weeks in 1976, prompting Fagan to confront "author" Don Menza, who coincidentally did the Flesh & Blood album’s horn charts and was now claiming credit for the song under the title ‘Instant Heart.’ The song disappeared from late night TV show shortly thereafter. ‘Bad Situation,’ the only other 1974 track, describes the band’s predicament that year: a track that should have propelled them to the big time, but instead bounced off a brick wall like a tennis ball. The maracas and funkified quasi-Bo Diddley groove hint at Stepson’s growth and what might have been.

Another sure to sell-out limited edition vinyl release from Lion Productions & Vintage, including full size insert with detailed liner notes by Doug Sheppard, plus photos, and lyrics

 

 

SELF TITLED. LP.

Band:SHIN JOONG HYUN AND YUP JUNS
Album:SELF TITLED. LP.
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Spring of 1974 witnessed the birth of psychedelic power trio Shin Joong Hyun & Yup Juns. “In Korean, yupjun literally means a brass coin,” Shin explains. “However, during that time it was used as slang to describe a sense of unpleasantness and dislike. Since I was so unpleasant and dissatisfied [in my career], I told myself, ‘Ok, fine, I am just a yupjun,’ and named my band with a rebellious attitude.” He began by renting a room at Seoul’s Tower Hotel to serve as a creative base for the group. After six months of preparation, the group cut ten powerful songs filled with monster grooves, fuzz guitar, emotive singing, and top-notch songwriting. The album was pressed up as a broadcast-only promotional vinyl to test radio response; the response wasn’t what anyone expected, and the record label refused to release the album. The band re-recorded the album, but it is this, the original ten track version, that has become legendary—with good reason. An astounding record, and one that we are privileged to bring to the rest of the world for the first time. The 180 gram vinyl version comes in a deluxe old-style jacket, with OBI, and has a full color insert with liner notes and rare photos; the deluxe mini-LP sleeve CD version has a 20-page booklet with rare photos, and great stories about Shin Joong Hyun and his continuing place of prominence in the Korean music scene.

180 gram pressing, in a heavy old 1960’s style “tip-on” jacket, with OBI and insert, enclosed in a re-sealable mylar bag - Companion to much-heralded Light in the Attic label compilation, Shin Joong Hyun “Beautiful Rivers and Mountains”.

 

 

WE ALL TOGETHER

Band:WE ALL TOGETHER
Album:WE ALL TOGETHER
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

40th anniversary edition—and for the first time, taken from a pristine master, which restores missing elements to several songs! Those of you with a more than slight acquaintance with rare psych will know that We All Together were among the best Beatlesque pop/rock bands of the early '70s. In fact, when the people of Peru first heard We All Together in 1972, they thought that the band was a foreign group, because of the high production values of their tracks. The reason for We all together’s excellence is simple: the band members had been around many years, first as New Juggler Sound, and then as Laghonia. Both of the We All Together albums were influenced by late period Beatles music: the vocal harmonies, melodic tunes and sophisticated arrangements, blending keyboards, acoustic guitars and electric guitars in a graceful manner. We All Together had an affinity for Paul McCartney's engaging melodicism more than anything, to the point of covering a couple of his obscure, early solo tunes. Yet it's the original compositions—fourteen of the eighteen tracks on this CD—that make this album special: 'It’s A Sin To Go Away' is a South American psychedelic classic, which begins with Procol Harum style organ, then hits you with thick fuzz guitar riffs, and backward and phased guitar solos; 'Hey Revolution' sounds like a White Album era outtake with Lennon-esque vocals and hard blues guitar riffs. The Peruvian scene at the beginning of the 1970's, still heavily influenced by the psychedelic experimentation of the 1960's, colored the way that the band shaped its songs, made its drawings, and developed its recording techniques. For this 40th anniversary release, we're pleased to be able to include eight bonus tracks, including acoustic demos outlining possible songs for a new album, only one of which only was ever recorded (‘Symbol queen’). This special mini-LP sleeve edition comes with a silkscreen replica promo poster, and other colorful ephemera, including photos and drawings and lyrics from the Cornejo archives. A limited, hand-numbered edition of 400 copies, meticulously remastered from the original master tape reels (unplayed since 1972). The definitive edition of an important album.

 

 

CONGREGACION VIENE

Band:CONGREGACION
Album:CONGREGACION VIENE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Congregación was the most legendary of the many excellent bands of the early 1970’s Chilean music scene—one could easily say that for many people, this album has had the impact of a religious experience. There is good reason for that: Congregación’s music has a highly evocative sense of space, using natural sounds, native Andean instruments, and acoustic textures to foreground ecologist and mystic Antonio Smith's soaring melodies and deeply felt, philosophical lyrics. The results make this one of those perfect albums that works just as well on a Sunday morning as it does late at night. If things had worked out differently for Smith and Congregación, this album might be as well-known (and well-loved) as comparable albums— comparable masterpieces—Milton Nascimento's “Clube de Esquina,” and Joyce and Nelson Angelo's eponymous album. Unfortunately, Smith’s lyrics earned him the enmity of the Chilean military dictatorship; he was forced to flee the country and “Viene…” (IRT, 1972) proved to be the band’s only release. Still, we’re lucky to have this album, with its perfect sequence of gentle, undulating, heavily-textured arrangements supporting Smith’s plaintive, intimate and searching vocals. The result is an atmosphere of peace and enlightenment, with deep and introspective moments of great quality; incredibly beautiful. Congregación band member Carlos Vittini gave some insight into Smith's charismatic mysticism: "I still get excited about how a musician has a great place in capturing the sensibility of the people. I knew the immense creative capacity of Antonio. From the sound of a bird, he speaks, capturing in passing the chirp of a chincol (sparrow) singing in a square, where these memories were made—from this he created a song." A highly recommended album, surely one of the pinnacles of dreamy psychedelia, despite its relative obscurity and undeniable rarity. Our deluxe, mini-LP gatefold jacket edition comes with a bi-lingual 32-page booklet, which explores the story of Congregación in the context of the rich Chilean rock music scene.

Limited edition of 500 copies, packaged in a deluxe 1960’s style tip-on gatefold jacket - Bi-lingual 32-page booklet, which explores the story of Congregación in the context of the rich Chilean rock music scene.

His music has thrilled listeners worldwide on the stage as well as behind–the–scenes as composer of original works for film and Theatre productions. As Professor of Music at SUNY Buffalo and the San Francisco Art Institute (1974-1984), budding musicians who studied under his teaching drew on Constanten’s vast musical knowledge and aptitude…. time & again. He performed as Artist-in-Residence at Harvard University, and consulted for the Smithsonian Institution. A Renaissance Man-in-Black with flowing white hair, purposeful mismatched socks and avant-Garde humor, is fluent in several languages and comfortable with many cultures. Ken Foust was a founding member of IKO, a regional “Dead” band in the 1980s. Ken has since moved on to original musical projects, but the influence is there. For example, Ken helped found Hot Wax in 1989, another regionally popular blues/Jamband (see Spreadbase, 10/27/1990). Studying classical piano with TC since the early naughties, the idea of a jam band developed. That band is called “Tom Constanten & His Able-Bodied Posse”. Out of that band arose the “Moved To Stanleyville” project; a collection of original songs written by both TC and Ken w/ a few other choice selections thrown in

 

 

LIVE AT ROCKPALAST

Band:BULLFROG
Album:LIVE AT ROCKPALAST
Label:SIREENA
Format:DVD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

In 1978 Bullfrog once again toured across Germany and the bordering countries. Final concert of this tour was a recording for Rockpalast Television on December 6th, 1978, in the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund. On stage the hardrock carousel turned around voiceful singer Gerd Hoch, his voice was THE trademark of Bullfrog. On guitar, Sebastian Leitner, who was able to get everybody on his feet. Haralt Kaltenecker on Keyboards impressed the characteristic sound of the group with his scratchy-dirty sound of organ, clavinet, and synthesizer. On top the all-out rhythmband with bass player Robert „Topsy“ Wimmer (also producer of the 2nd vinyl „High in Spirits“) and drummre Achim Wielert (former EPITAPH and BREAKFAST) who rounded up the Heavy sound. Bullfrog presented the most popular songs of all their albums on stage of Rockpalast Unfortunately that night there was a complete breakdown of the monitor system during the whole recording. A real nightmare on such a huge stage like Westfalenhalle in Dortmund. The musicians could not hear each other and the singer could not even hear his own voice…. Against all odds the concert was a success because there were many positive feedbacks by phone at WDR. Especially the song „L.A. Police No.55“, which tells a story about bankrobbing, was requested by the tvviewers. Thus the title has been played in addition to the usual repeats on January 7th, 1979, during a Rockpalast Festival. On DVD for the very first time...

Album:BREAKING BARRIERS

The Swedish symphonic rock group Tribute made four records during the eighties. Breaking Barriers is their second album, originally recorded and released in 1986. This is the first album where the band is joined by french drummer Pierre Moerlen (ex Gong/Mike Oldfield). The sound was now getting sharper compared to the first album New Views. Breaking Barriers is more in the direction of jazz fusion, even though the more poetic quality of the previous album is still to be heard. One of the songs of the album is "Diesel Enginee", a duet for two bass guitars that became one of the bands hits and was performed on every concert throughout their carreer.

CLARIFOIL / NEVER BEEN TO CALIFORNIA

Band:BRONCO BULLFROG
Album:CLARIFOIL / NEVER BEEN TO CALIFORNIA
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Garage Punk

Bronco Bullfrog issued a pile of great records across the early part of the century (that’s this one!!!), wowed small crowds in the UK and did amazingly well in Spain. Those who heard and saw ’em fell passionately in love with their “technicolour pop” sound. But it’s all a long time ago now, with their last album seeing the light of day in 2004 and a compilation appearing slightly later on the prestigious Rev-Ola label. What makes Bronco Bullfrog so special and endearing is that both then and now they have never been, or had the slightest inkling to be, fashionable. All obsessive record collectors and pop music fanatics, the trio of Mike Poulson (vocals/guitar), Louis Comfort-Wiggett (bass/vocals) and Andy Morten (drums/vocals) avoid obvious genre mimicking or being a part of any movement. This isn’t Mark E Smith anti-fashion or deconstructionism, but it’s not wear your influences on your sleeve plagiarism either. What the Broncos do so well is to take their inspirations and aspirations and play them hard and with abandon.

These two songs sound as good, if not better, than anything they cut the first time round. “Recording at Sandgate Sound is a dream,” says Andy of State Records’ in-house facility, “albeit a slightly damp, smelly one. Marty and Mole really know their onions and, more importantly, they know their pop music too. We can tell 'em that we want a track to sound like Plastic Penny circa Currency and they know what we mean. I don't really like the sound of any of the old Bronco records but I love the sound of the new stuff, especially 'Clarifoil'.”

Like the proverbial prodigal son, the UK’s reigning folk-rock lordsThe Higher State return to State Records after an absence of almost 6 years [the group gave the label its inaugural release - the now long-out-of-print 'And In Time' 7"].

Call it garage punk, call it folk rock, call it psychedelic, call it what you want; stuff it into the nearest and most convenient pigeonhole you can find; box it, label it, file it away, but first…LISTEN. The Higher State offer YOU this opportunity to hitch a ride—where's this trip headed? No idea, but it'll be fun finding out.

Shonen Knife's debut. Burning Farm (1983) was the debut album of vocalist and guitarist Naoko Yamano, drummer and backing vocalist Atsuko Yamano, and bassist and vocalist Michie Nakatani, a.k.a. Shonen Knife. A throwback to 70's power-pop a la the Ramones or Devo, with some Beatles mixed in, and titles and lyrics that are either silly, disjointed, and/or surreal a la the B-52s.

PRETTY LITTLE BAKA GUY

Band:SHONEN KNIFE
Album:PRETTY LITTLE BAKA GUY
Label:PLANETWORKS
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Osaka trio Shonen Knife's 1984 album and their sophomore effort!

Shonen Knife, which transliterates as Shonen Naifu, literally “Boy Knife,” is an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock acts, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs expressing infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. Despite their pop-oriented nature, the trio maintains a distinctly underground garage rock sound rooted in edgy instrumentation and D.I.Y. aesthetics, which over the course of their long career has earned them a solid, worldwide cult following and made avid fans out of seminal ’90s alternative rock acts such as Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross. The band has been credited with making “the international pop underground more international” by “opening it up to bands from Japan”. They have also performed as a Ramones tribute band under the name The Osaka Ramones.

Album:712
Label:PLANETWORKS
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Osaka trio Shonen Knife's FOURTH Album now available again at a super low price! For those of you who are unaware of Shonen Knife, they are a Japanese female rock band that emerged in the early 80's. Their first three albums are considered lo-fi classics. The sound of these albums is almost like a cross between the Ramones and the Shaggs: simple, unpretentious, amateurish, quirky, joyous pop (that fans of the Vaselines, Beat Happening, and Daniel Johnston should love). However, the band is probably best known for their later incarnation: a hyper-cute sugar rush of wellproduced pop punk. This started with "Let's Knife" (which featured reworkings of songs from their first 3 albums), and peaked with the excellent "Rock Animals" and "Brand New Knife."

Album:THE END OF DAYS
Label:TNS RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The second album from Leeds outfit ACiD DROP. Already well established on the UK's underground scene, ACiD DROP put on an explosive live show renown for crown participation and a tongue in cheek sense of humour, usually leaving everyone involved disheveled but in want of more. The rowdy Yorkshire based quartet are often compared with the up-tempo skate sounds of Epitaph and Fat Wreck Chords bands with the sing along anthems of Side One Dummy bands, drawing influence from the likes of NOFX, The Briggs, Bad Religion, Flogging molly and Gaslight Anthem with a pinch of The Slackers.

Label:ATMF

Genre:Black Metal

After the underground success of last year's record "Sentinel", SPECTRAL LORE is back with concept-album shared with the US one-man band MARE COGNITUM, to our ears one of the most surprising black metal acts of 2012. "SOL" is not a typical split album, but a collaboration on many levels, starting from the conceptual and moving on to the musical. As the bands declare, "Themes and riffs have been cross-referenced and transfigured, structures have been put in proportion, lyrics have been written in parallel. Conceptually, it is an attempt at a kind of cosmological philosophy; searching the vast, cold expanses of the universe(-s) for traces of meaning and purpose. What it is out there that is fundamental, absolute and shared? What can we learn about ourselves by looking outward, to the void and the inanimate?" Search for your own answers by getting lost in the cosmic black metal of SPECTRAL LORE and MARE COGNITUM, which offer here 3 majestic tracks to be reckoned as their best material so far.

METEOR

Band:ANTIGAMA
Album:METEOR
Label:SELFMADEGOD
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

ANTIGAMA’s sixth studio full-length since forming in 2000, “Meteor” is the revered act’s first proper album since 2009’s acclaimed “Warning”, and following two LPs with Relapse Records, will see the band returning to longtime allies Selfmadegod Records, their first LP for the label since 2005’s innovative “Zeroland”. The recently completed composition “Meteor” once again proves all over again why the band continually reaps such accolades with the media fans as both one of the most brutal bands of the genre as well as one of the most cutting-edge. With eleven new tracks of primal ANTIGAMA annihilation, “Meteor” reverts back to some of the bands more intimately brutal early material with thirty minutes of ultra-tight grindcore explosiveness, yet continues to carry the band’s detrimentally inventive edge, integrating brief progressive soundtrack ventures and more noise and programming elements. Recorded at Progresja Studio in Warsaw with producer Pawel "Janos" Grabowski (Masachist, Lost Soul) and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer), the album also features a guest appearance by Michal Lapaj from world renowned Polish progressive rock band Riverside

SGT HETFIELDS MOTORBREATH PUB BAND

Band:BEATALLICA
Album:SGT HETFIELDS MOTORBREATH PUB BAND
Label:PLANETWORKS
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Remember the band Dread Zeppelin? Well, here's a reminder -- they're a band that caused a minor stir in the early '90s when they took Led Zeppelin classics, added a dash of reggae, and were fronted by an Elvis Presley impersonator (who alternated between reciting Zeppelin and Elvis lyrics). It was perhaps only a matter of time until another group came along that mashed together two other renowned rock acts, and while Zeppelin and Elvis aren't exactly universes apart musically, the Beatles and Metallica are -- which makes the emergence of Beatallica much more of a curiosity. And somehow the band (whose members go by such colorful nom de plumes as Jaymz Lennfield, Grg Hammettson, Kliff McBurtney, and Ringo Larz) mixes and matches Beatles and Metallica riffs/lyrics pretty flawlessly -- as evidenced throughout 2007's Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band. The next time you're going to party with headbanging pals, put on Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band toward the end of the night, and watch their mullets spin as they enter this bizarro world!

Label:PLANETWORKS

Masterful Mystery Tour is the official follow up to Sgt. Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band, the album that owes its initial legal existence to the coolness that is Lars Ulrich with the official blessing from the Metallica camp. Recorded on the heels of their All You Need Is Blood EP and the Drinkus Maximus World Tour, Beatallica along with their producer and engineer Flemball Rasmartin, have hit their stride for maximum awesomeness, taking their sound to a whole new blistering level. Beatallica’s technically brilliant musicianship and uncanny ability to craft two polar opposites into new unique must hear songs, continues to separate them from the pack.

The solo project of the selfsame TOXIC HOLOCAUST founder/frontman, JOEL GRIND's The Yellowgoat Sessions bears many similarities to the early days of TOXIC HOLOCAUST - especially the Critical Mass 2002 demo (also released by HHR) - but goes down a darker, dirtier, decidedly more primitive route. The (toxic) result is 10 tracks of raw and fuzzed-out rock 'n' roll / metal / punk in the vein of the first Bathory album and early Motorhead, take it or leave it! Says JOEL GRIND, "If you are looking for over-produced shit that passes as 'metal' today, this is NOT for you!"

Genre:Thrash/Crossover Metal

Originally formed as a five-piece in 1986, POTENTIAL THREAT SF has shared the stage with everyone from TESTAMENT to SLAYER to CRO-MAGS to NUCLEAR ASSAULT, and just recently returned from touring with DEATH ANGEL. Their hardworking, no-holds-barred attitude carries over to their live shows. Though they put every ounce of grit and determination into their set, they still manage not to sound like angry old fucks. Their mentality is simple — it's just as easy for a band to get the audience involved in their show as it is to be pissed off and push them away. In short, they still have fun and show it on stage and to the fans, regardless of how long they've been playing or how many people are in the attendance.

POTENTIAL THREAT SF consists of Mike Noble on lead vocals and lead/rhythm guitar, Daniel Sheridan on lead/rhythm guitar, Kenny Noble on drums and Damien Sisson (also in DEATH ANGEL) on bass.

AD INFERNA has chosen to break down the barriers of musical genres to offer their own musical, virtual and thematic style: each production is different, unique and synthesizes their own personal evolution. AD INFERNA continue their musical evolution with their new 100 percent electronic album called DSM produced and mastered by Vasi Vallis (Frozen Plasma, Reaper, NamNamBulu). The concept of 9 tracks is an electronic psychoanalysis, punctuated by catchy melodies which only Orias has the secrecy and the sound incantations sung in French by Arkames. The only glimmer of hope seems to come from lyrical flights of Asphodel. Warning, if the atmosphere is unhealthy, terribly black and spell all the pieces that make up DSM are pure bombs assembled by expert hands of Vasi Vallis to make carnage in the Klubs. DSM is the ultimate tool and essential for any self-respecting DJ. It s cutting, killer and addicting.
