A horrible hack

Wolves Of Greece - '2000-2004' LP

added by Alex Deller on Thursday November 26 2020 in Pre-orders

Wrong Speed and Gringo Records have teamed up for something tantalising: an LP that compiles the Wolves Of Greece Peel session, unreleased 7" and demos. For those unaware, the band were post-Bob Tilton and pre-Kogumaza, occupying an abstract, splenetic, improv-battered place reminiscent of Clikatat Ikatowi and Angel Hair. Pre-orders go live via the band's Bandcamp page on December 4, and until then why not (re)familiarise yourself with their rather excellent 10"?

Screamers - 'Screamers Demo Hollywood 1977' LP

added by Alex Deller on Tuesday November 24 2020 in Pre-orders

Superior Viaduct have decided that all the many, many Screamers boots rattling round the universe just aren't up to snuff, and have decided to give the band's '77 demo an official reissue. Sourced from the original tapes, the label says this collection from the legendary synth-punks will be a 'revelation'.

added by Alex Deller on Tuesday November 24 2020 in Pre-orders

Static Shock are taking pre-orders for the debut LP from Sydney's Oily Boys. Originally released by Cool Death, the album's called 'Cro Memory Grin' and offers an enjoyably horrific blast of psych-mangled hardcore.

-(16)- / Grime - split LP

added by Alex Deller on Thursday November 19 2020 in Pre-orders

Longstanding SoCal sluggers -(16)- have teamed up with Italian sludge miscreants Grime for the third instalment of Heavy Psych Sounds' 'Doomed Sessions' series. -(16)- play three songs and Grime play two, and there likely won't be a whole lot of happy to be found in any of 'em.

Orwell discography LP

added by Andy Malcolm on Wednesday November 11 2020 in New Releases

Orwell was a band in 1995-1996, while all the members had other notable musical projects going on (Gainer, Braid, The Sky Corvair, Hubcap). Though Orwell only lasted a year, they managed to record 8 songs, and play a handful of shows. 3 of those song managed to get released at the time but the rest never emerged. 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the band and their recordings. Justin Nardy (Expert Work Records) and Mike Welch (American Handstand Records), had talked about releasing this material almost 15 years ago when Billy Smith gave them a “demo” tape of the Orwell recordings. The idea never saw the light of day until now, as one time pressing of 300 records on black vinyl, scheduled for 8th January 2021. It will feature all 8 studio recorded songs, including brand new vocals recorded by Bob Nanna in 2020 on the song Ph9 Green.
