Two new 12"s for the distro. £10 for each plus postage. Email for orders and enquiries. Check out the distro page for other stock and postage prices.

Kremlin - Drunk In The Gulag

Great new LP that follows up on the 7" they had out before. It's pretty all over the place this record without losing anything of itself. The drums driving the whole thing along sometimes with d-beat other times with a more straight up punk style while the guitars and bass churn out some cracking riffs taking influences from all sorts of bands (think lots of British 80s punk and metal). In fact the vocals remind me of Discharge, shouted with a little bit of reverb. There is crisp quality to the recordings with the drums quite high in the mix making for an original sound and the guitar solos absolutely rip. This isn't some raw punk band just churning out punk by numbers, these guys seem totally keyed in and I get the impression they are having fun which is always great (Hardcore has a terrible habit of being uber fucking serious).

Gag - This Punk Shit Is Cool But I Hope I'm Rob Zombie When I am 28

Violent, dark, reverb laden punk which reminds me of Drunks with Guns et al. Think mid to slow paced with filthy vocals splurging out all over this superb mess of a release. If you like your punk with a vile edge this is the band for you. Think Flipper, Drunks With Guns, Rusted Shut, Francis Harold. etc. More than lives up to the promise of the demo. Also my favourite album artwork in a long time.
