THE COVENTRY AUTOMATICS AKA THE SPECIALS - Dawning Of A New Era LP
Zoom image
...

Back in 1978, THE COVENTRY AUTOMATICS headed into the studio to record some demos in an effort to secure a record deal. It didn’t happen, but within months the band had renamed themselves THE SPECIALS and set up their own label called 2 TONE and a movement was born and the rest is history!

“DAWNING OF A NEW ERA” is a fascinating collection of demos, now officially re-released for the 40th anniversary of the recordings, and making the tracks officially available on vinyl for the first time in over 2 decades! Of the 13 songs which appear on the release only Wake Up, Look But Don't Touch and Jay Walker failed to make it on to any official release and were dropped from the bands live set early in their career. The remainder of the tracks offer embryonic versions of tracks which make up the bulk of the bands first album. Rock and Roll Nightmare would later appear on the bands More Specials under the name Pearls Cafe abet with slightly different lyrics. The track Raquel appeared on the b-side of the Dutch Concrete Jungle single and later was released in session version as part of the BBC Radio Sessions album.

These recordings are must owns for any SPECIALS fan or indeed anyone with a love of the 2Tone/Ska scene

Released on BOSS TUNEAGE's FREE RANGE PRODUCT imprint. Random Mix Colour Vinyl.

AUS-ROTTEN - ...And Now Back To ...LP (SPLATTER VINYL)

The second studio LP from AUS-ROTTEN, originally released in 1998, is back in print on PROFANE EXISTENCE! Considered by many to be the highlight of AUS-ROTTEN’s discography, “And Now Back To Our Programming” is an absolutely essential anarcho-punk LP, and the rapid fire delivery of righteous political anger AUS-ROTTEN are famous for is just as prevalent on this release as it is on all AUS-ROTTEN records. From the second the needle drops this LP challenges you to be the change you want to see in the world. 7 songs in total including the epic 16-minute title track.

DÖDLÄGE - Ritual Slaughter LP

DÖDLÄGE - Ritual Slaughter LP

Restocked! Crushing D-Beat Kångpunk behind a raw wall of distortion! After 2 Ep’s(one released as a cassette) DÖDLÄGE unleash their first LP - ”Ritual Slaughter”! Prepare to be crushed! DÖDLÄGE are a raw grind/crust band that belt out old school crust the way it was meant to be played! Highly influenced by Swedish Kångpunk (the word DÖDLÄGE is Swedish for "Deadlock”), you can expect a large Scandi influence. DÖDLÄGE mix the more raw eras of ANTI-CIMEX with the earlier years of crust/grind bands like EXTREME NOISE TERROR and DISRUPT ...

WŁOCHATY - Włochaty (Remastered) 2xLP

WŁOCHATY - Włochaty (Remastered) 2xLP

WLOCHATY is a long running polish anarcho punk band probably best compared to a polish version of CONFLICT? The band formed in 1987 and just Dezerter had quite a struggle with authorities and rightwing thugs. They recorded their first album in 91 and appeared on the Jarocin Festival stage in 1993. This was a break through for the polish anarcho punk scene and om the same year WLOCHATY released their eponymous album "Włochaty" on cassette tape and sold about 20 000 (!) copies! - Due to their success the band was accused of being "commercial", but still played diy shows and demonstrations across poland. - Now, after over 20 years these recordings are available for the 1st time on CD and double vinyl LP - Gatefold cover includes a giant poster with English translations of the songs (that somehow got up-to-date again in todays Poland) and an anti-fascist poster on the other side. - This is highly essential stuff if you dig polish punkrock!
