Big order from Video Disease covering everyone's tastes I reckon. It took a long time to get here but get here it did. Check out the Distro page for postage and other stock. Email for orders and enquiries.

Stoic Violence - S/T 12" - £10

Slightly different style of recording on this one from the raw lo-fi demo tape. This is actually a very well recorded and very good record. Pretty fast and wild drumming provides the backing for some angry Hardcore to bash you around the chops.

Francis Harold and the Holograms - The White Bull Weeps From Valhalla 12" - £10

Cracking last record from these American punkers. One side long jam of raw garage influenced Punk. Elements of Brainbombs and Flipper etc but with a stronger Garage influence. Great riffs lie at the heart of this record as hugely reverbed vocals top the whole thing off. Second pressing in purple. I really like the artwork as well. Shame these guys are no longer about.

Vaginors - Total Nonsense 7" - £4

I have said this before and I will say it again, Aussie Punk is killer at the moment. This is yet another example of that from the hilarious and brilliant Vaginors. Sound wise it carries on where the LP left off really. Bass high in the mix carrying the riffs while guitars and drums bash away. The vocals are amazing whining shrieks from the aptly named Ratboy. There is a VHS from these guys soon, can't wait to get some copies of that.

AshtoDust - S/T 7" - £4

Blackened Hardcore I guess? The recording is certainly in a lo-fi vein much like a lot of the great Black Metal coming out these days. It's not that surprising really considering that I am pretty sure it's the guy who runs Fallow Field behind this band or at least someone connected with it anyhow. The music is certainly more Hardcore than Metal though with a strong later Black Flag feel to some of the tracks. Look forward to hearing more from these.

Perspex Flesh - Ona 7" - £4

Easily my favourite UK Hardcore band and pretty much definitely the best. These guys kill and this 7" proves that. Really hope to see a bunch more stuff from these guys. It's not moshy but it's not gay either. Just really good riffs and songs and vocals that sound like a bulldog. Tasty.

The Flex - Scum on the Run - £4

Another Leeds hardcore band starting to gain some attention alongside Mob Rules and Perspex Flesh. Obviously influenced by Straight Edge without being a carbon copy. Powerful Mosh. Put this on and try not to run round your living room. Second press on Red.

Rule of Thirds - S/T 7" - £4

A bit of a Goth/Dark rock vibe with a hint of UK Post-Punk like Joy Divison etc. Some of this stuff can be shit and boring but these guys have crafted a good 7". Buy this and paint your nails black. Cover image is class and all. Occult vibes.

Trench Rot - Tyrant 7" - £4

A mix of Discharge and Poison Idea if you ask me, so not a bad start really. Not going with the raw sound that many bands along these lines opt for and it sounds good. This one is a grower I think. Tight and memorable Hardcore from the US.
