BONUS BOYS - S/T 7" (1979)

This is another one of those 7"s I've flipped through the bins in the local shops for years but never gave a second glance until recently. Turns out these guys were an early Vancouver new wave/power pop band and not some new hipster act from Brooklyn or something.

VA - København I Ruiner 2xEP (2003)

This double 7" comp is a great snapshot of the early 00's hardcore punk scene in Copenhagen. All killer no filler here!

SUBCULTURE - I Heard A Scream LP (1985)

Holy smokes, this album rips! Until it was recently reissued, I'd never heard this North Carolina band before (except for their song "Sadness" off the Tim Yohannan comp). Some of you may recognize the singer from his later band, Double Negative. Don't sleep on this like I did all these years!

ANTI - God Can't Bounce LP (1984)

Third and final release, made up of compilation tracks and outtakes recorded between 1982-83. And yes, it was also ripped from the 2018 reissue.

CAT'S GAME - File 13 tape (1992)

It's been six years since I last posted anything by this band (which was the 'Home Sweet Home' 7" BTW). I came across this tape last week at Red Cat Records. They did have two copies so the other might still be there if anyone wants it, just sayin'. Track 7 'Surfista' also appeared on the Wade Free Vancouver comp.

REPROBATES - Demo tape (2007)

Raw HC from Toronto featuring future and former members of Sick Charade, Hassler, Unfun, and more I'm sure. Dubbed on an old 13 Engines cassette just to give it that extra shitty demo quality sound. 
1. Abandoned City
2. Brainwashed
3. Falling Apart
4. Self Destruct
5. Rat Maze

ANTI - Defy The System LP (1983)

Sophomore (and in my opinion, best) album by this lesser known South Bay band. Like their debut album I posted, this is ripped from the 2018 reissue.
