A horrible hack

added by Alex Deller on Monday July 15 2019 in Reissues

Just in case you haven't picked up one of the previous rereleases, Relapse are reissuing Repulsion's pivotal 'Horrified' LP to chime with the album's 30th anniversary. You can get it on either picture disc vinyl or cassette, depending on which anachronistic format you favour.

The Rats - 'In A Desperate Red' LP

added by Alex Deller on Tuesday July 2 2019 in Reissues

The ever-wonderful Mississippi Records are reissuing The Rats' 'In A Desperate Red' LP. Here is some commentary: "This is the last record by the Portland punk legends before Fred and Toody moving on to Dead Moon. In fact, two songs from the first Dead Moon LP hail from the same session as this LP. 'In A Desperate Red' combines garage rock, new wave and art punk... just picture a more punk version of Dead Moon if you can. Six years of work went into remixing and remastering this version - with Fred Cole twisting knobs and obsessing over its every detail. One of Fred Cole's greatest records and impossible to find for many years - at last this LP is available as it was meant to be heard."

More Grey Hairs.

added by Alex Deller on Friday June 28 2019 in New Releases

Gringo Records have released the third album by Grey Hairs, which is titled 'Health & Social Care'. The label describes it as "an expansion of the band's sound that recalls elements of The Birthday Party, Laughing Hyenas, The Jesus Lizard or of a downer-fuelled B52s and what surf music sounds like coming from the most land-locked part of the country."
