More Misery Makes Me Happy!

Click for larger image

Responding to the earnest demands of aged aesthetes, veteran crusters Misery have had their recent DIY download-only release pressed on to vinyl by the good people at Inimical Records. Not any old vinyl, of course. It's a double album, cut at 45rpm to ensure maximum heaviness, on beautiful grey splatter vinyl [...]

Opposition Rising - Aftermathematics LP

This is the first vinyl release from the rapidly-expanding Riot Ska Records collective (among others), and it's a great start for them.

Opposition Rising hail from Boston and band members have been heavily involved with the scene for many years. Their diverse tastes are reflected in the sound they've produced here, a pleasant cocktail of sharp [...]

A Year In My Ears 2011

Although I don't think I've spent so much on new music this year when compared to last, what I have bought has been immensely satisfying. These ten releases have ended up doing multiple revolutions on various stereophonic devices around my house, and have definitely earned their keep.

Amebix - Sonic Mass LP (Easy Action Records). An [...]

Mixing It Up For The Indonesian Punks!

As mentioned a couple of days ago, I've put together a mix for my punk friends in Indonesia. It's not much, but I hope that someone who's had a bit of a shit time at the rough end of this theocratic fascism ends up with a smile on their face after listening to it. Same [...]

Misery - From Where The Sun Never Shines DL

Back with a bang after too many years, heavy crusters Misery return to show the young pups how it's done.

Embracing the new audio world order, this is a download-only release. But that doesn't mean getting lumbered with crappy bitrate mp3s. No, this one's available in full studio glory FLAC. Burn it to CD and you've [...]

Amebix - Knights Of The Black Sun 12"

My oh my. This truly is a work of art, from the outside in.

Let's start with the sleeve. Ethereal tones of grey and blue swirl through each other to suggest a sense of freedom in what first appears to be a very foreboding landscape confined by the blackest of shadows. Immerse yourself in it for [...]

Expendable Youth - The Exposing Of The Immortal Person LP

I love it when I take a bit of a punt and end up with another slice of perfectly turned out coloured vinyl (black-splattered beer) and accompanying noise (blood-splattered ears). Such is the case with EY's 'The Exposing Of The Immortal Person' LP, put out (at least in part) by the eternally-friendly Alex of Distro-y [...]
