MAD BUTCHER presents a new edition of the LP for its Classics series. At the same time, this album is the last with the founding members Dave Bateman (guitar), Mark Hambly (bass) and Shane Baldwin (drums). Lia does her thing exceptionally well and also ensures a real rock tube feeling with the THE SWEET cover "Teenage Rampage". Otherwise, the songs are rockier, but also more varied than on their debut. Lia sings more multifaceted to Beki and the band has arranged really good songs with songs like "New blood", "Take it or leave it", "Rebels&Kings", which go powerfully into the ear and represent a significant increase to the earlier songs, because they are just more sophisticated, but no less straight and melodic.

Live album on 2 LP's the cult UK Punk /Oi! Band as the title says in Holland Recorded in 1986
There are really no big words to lose about the VIBRATORS: active for about 30 years, still very regularly on The Road and consistently release good albums, the band is an institution and the good conscience of the UK punk rock heritage. The vinyl version of Energize is released with a completely new cover artwork. 16 dry rocking songs between 77s UK punk, powerpop and pub rock roll. Indispensable! (Source:coretexrecords.com)
Episode XIII is the British fun punk's first album in eight years. In this case, the title says it all, because their latest work is their 13th studio album.
The American SKOIDATS, founded in 1995, unfortunately managed only two albums. The re-released debut "The Times" from 1997, then released on Moon Ska and a little later as vinyl on Vinyl Only Releases, the Grover sublabel, definitely deserves to be excavated again.
Roddy Radiation aka Roderick James Byers was once part of the legendary specials that crossed punk with reggae in 1979. The fact that he sees himself as "Skabilly Rebel" must be seen as a wink to his successful past, because "The Roddy Radiation Anthology" is above all a retrospective of Roddy's love of a very specific genre, rockabilly, that has lasted for decades. For 18 songs, Radiation has been scrambles through his career after his career in bands such as The Tearjerkers, The Bonediggers and The Raiders. In the style of the Stray Cats, crisp rock'n'roll numbers alternate with mid-tempo snobbers ("Hook, Line & Sinker", "Judgement Day"), and Western sounds can also be.
The Last Resort have burned into their memories with hymns such as "Violence In Our Minds", even though the band had to disband for the first time in their early days because of the increasing violence at their concerts. Here's the pioneering 1980s debut of the Oi/Street Punk heroes.
The Crack was founded in 1982 and did not release their debut album until 1989. These British punks were often used with the Oi! Scene in the mid-80s along with Cockney called Rejects and The Business, but had more in common with the melodic punk stylings of 999 and mod groups like The Jam or Secret Affair. With a glowing wall of guitars and biting melodies, from the classic album opener 'My World' to the raw closer 'The Giddy House', The Crack delivers ten fantastic original songs that are firmly rooted in 1980s British anthem punk but also have a pop corner.
Originally released on Link in 1988, it was the last album in the classic line-up (including Mark Brennan on bass and the returning original guitarist Steve Kent on lead guitar). 12 rock singalong-smashers with British-certified pub and stadium credentials, including such massive street rock earworms as Do a runner and Never say never. Comes in the original artwork with a full-color photo-insert, which contains previously unpublished pictures of the band, in 500 edition
Social criticism! Joy! Dance rage! For more than 16 years, the northern Italian sextet has been inspiring an ever-growing crowd of fans, playing around 100 acclaimed live shows every year. Following the legend MANO NEGRA, founded by MANU CHAO, who referred to their casual crossover as "Patchanka", TALCO's "Punkchanka" is a bubbling and fiery mixture of uptempo punk rock, Latin, folk, Balkan and ska influences. Here, the 13 songs are dedicated to the humiliation of humanity, moral and political abysses or the concept of truth. The fact that TALCO act with such breathtaking safety and precision, while still transporting so much euphoria and fire, is always astonishing. (Source: coretexrecords.com)
Rude Pride from Madrid consistently continues the path taken on their debut album "Be True To Yourself" – and put a loose one on top with "Take It As It Comes". Twelve highly melodic and varied songs - which were once again sung entirely in English - played loosely and supplely from the hip and with the slightly hoarse vocals as an unmistakable trademark: Where Rude Pride is written on it is Rude Pride. The committed and class-conscious lyrics come without embarrassing platitudes very pleasantly, musically there is classical Oi! Punk, which is charmingly accompanied by a keyboard. A light Rocksteady touch accompanies the naturally still dominant Oi! Sound. (Source:contra-net.com)
Daily Records reissue of Red Alert's debut album, a true British street punk classic originally released by No Future Records in 1983. The cover is slightly different from the first edition and the inlay contains additional, previously unpublished photos, all from the same photo shoot used for the original design. Pioneering Oi! street punk classic.
The 95 TTB album, then released on We Bite Records. Since then only as a CD, here there is the first vinyl edition. 15 songs made in Peter's own recipe: highly melodic, ultra-catchy and powerful at the same time. Sharp-edged power chords, sarcastic lyrics, crisp drum beat. Best UK punk entertainment, richly stocked with earworms: "Supermodels, "Give up drinking", 500 pieces in original artwork. Daily 2015
Great compilation of the early singles (also the B-sides!), among others the debut single released in 1982 on No Future until the 1985 releases on Jungle and Trapper Records. We're really only dealing with the really cool early stuff, including the UK indie chart hits "Banned From The Pubs", "Run Like Hell", "Zombie Creeping Flesh", "Blown Out Again", "Wimpeez" and "Keys Of The City". Just as mandatory as the Newtown Neurotics LP! * Radiation
Live album in a new Release by the punk band from Rancid Frontman Tim Armstrong, originally released in 1988
Radio recording from 1988 with Tim Armstrong & Matt Freeman in the time before Rancid!
Re-release of Mad Butcher Major Accident - founded in 1977 in Darlington, northern England - have already made a name for themselves several times in that scene. As one of the first bands to embrace the Clockwork Orange image, they released their debut single "Warboots" in 1980. This was followed by numerous releases on various Oi! Cult labels, before MA disbanded in 1987 until further notice Fortunately, the former founding members Paul, Dave and Con picked themselves up again after an overwhelming spontaneous gig with The Crack and Cock Sparrer and produced "The Ultimate High" in the Impulse Studios in Newcastle in the summer of '96. If you are into Blitz, Cocksparrer & Co, you will be well served here.
Los Fastidios come here with their 8th album as usual full throttle against politics, establishment and dumpbackism everywhere. Streetpunk and Ska are here the already proven, predominant methods to save humanity from itself once again. And this time even trilingual: English, French and of course as usual in Italian. Supported by guest winds by Skassapunka and Francesco "De Veggent" (RedSka) on the keyboard, there is also a moody potpourri of reinterpreted ( Clandestino-Manu Chao), traditional (postcard from the 90s), singalong (sound of revolution) and the usual full pack (no borders, no walls). The candy of the record is probably the Specials/Cock Sparrer Medley... already a highlight from the idea.
Two years after the last album "The Sound of Revolution" here is the ninth Los Fastidios album on Kob Records in collaboration with Potencial Hardcore (Madrid), with the support of Fire and Flames Music! The album includes 13 songs in typical Los Fastido's style and is a successful mix of streetpunk, ska, Oi !, rocksteady, reggae, melodic punk and a touch of pop, sung in Italian, Spanish, a bit French and for the first time also a German song together with Dickenvon Slime!
The first solo recordings by Rancid frontman Lars Frederiksen. These six songs are full of the passion for which he is so known and performed with the authenticity and power that only Lars can bring to the table! The song selection is a deep personal encounter for Lars, as he writes in an inspired and detailed explanation on the packaging. By putting together and reinventing songs from his other bands and even some covers, it's clear to see how important this release is to him. Many will remember that the pandemic ruined attempts to get this concert onto the streets. With this album in hand, one can safely expect Lars to bring this to fans all over the world
"O'Farrell" was recorded in 1999, but has never been released through a label, let alone regular distribution. "O'Farrell" is certainly the band's punkiest and most unpolished album, but considering that it was made more than two decades ago, it's amazing how close the band was to their now highly popular, casual trademark sound. Although uptempo ska numbers like "This City" and "Untitled" are hard to imagine on the band's albums today, they have their own charm, with "Shit Jobs For Rock" the band shows early on the preference for bridging the gap to hip-hop and rap. "O'Farrell" clearly proves the class of the band, which is rightly more popular than ever today.
