A horrible hack

Pale Kids - 'Holy Mess' 7" pre-orders

added by Alex Deller on Saturday March 25 2017 in Pre-orders

"Pale Kids are four queer-punks from Durham, and no they’re not the same band as Martha, although they did record one of their EPs in their house. High on pop give you their latest opus and it's a total banger. A wise person once said that they sound like a mix of The Undertones (if Fergal Sharkey dropped acid instead of drinking Tizer), Slade and Protex, It's the sound of a party that you were never invited to. Discussing the record, the band suggest it’s about, 'being sick, distracted, heartbroken, obsessed, inattentive and the guilt we feel for all these things'."

Sounds alright, eh?

New Radio Raheem releases

added by Alex Deller on Tuesday March 21 2017 in Reissues

Radio Raheem is back on the beat with two new early hc exhumations: an LP's worth of gear from Sorex (their 7", demo tracks and sessions from an unreleased LP) and a one-sided LP from Smart Dads entitled 'Bummer Summer'. Fingers crossed someone this side of the Atlantic gets copies in for distro, as both sound rather super.

added by Alex Deller on Thursday February 16 2017 in New Releases

S'been available on their bandcamp site for what seems like yonks, but you can now order a physical copy of the self-titled LP from Berlin-based post-punx Pretty Hurts. You probably should, too, because it's pretty great.
