VANILLA POPPERS "LURKING IN THE CORNER" 7"
Debut ep from Australian/Ohio quartet Vanilla Poppers. Coming off of a very successful US tour, Vanilla Poppers offer up 6 blistering tracks of raw, unhinged, in your face punk.
F.I.T.S. "FEEDING ILLNESS TO SOCIETY" 7"
The debut 7” EP release of this Canadian hardcore punk band, hidden in the cold corner of Montreal, QC. In a province hostile and divided by its two official languages, F.I.T.S came out of the French punk scene two years ago and, in a way, brought these separate punks scenes closer to start a new wave of bands currently growing in Montreal right now.
I caught them live at Loudhouse and was blown away by how fast and relentless each song was, constantly taking turns and spinning out of control but still keeping it together while the singer obnoxiously strutted the stage, walking the fine line between sanity and mental break - that was F.I.T.S. to me.
They don’t have much live footage online to prove it and their recorded tracks can only emulate to a certain extent what I’m trying to describe.
Take a listen and delve into the weirder punk anomalies of French Canada.
BULSCH "Tartington" 7"
From Cleveland, BULSCH are three guys on vocals wearing red turtle necks, jumping around and singing to a backing band in a made up language, together producing dirty stomping hardcore punk. "Tartington" was originally a short run cassette released last October, now here on vinyl as their debut 7"!
Part of the wave of new Cleveland punk and containing members of your new favourite bands like PERVERTS AGAIN, THE ROOBYDOCKS, CRUELSTER, VANILLA POPPERS, PRISON MOAN and a bunch more.
MAGIC CITY "S/T" 7"
Cleveland punk "...influenced by Dangerous Records and stuff like THE BAGS, DEADBEATS and THE PLUGZ. Like the art punk of the 70's combined with a lot of hard rock like BUDGIE, THE SWEET and weirdo bands like WALL OF VOODOO as well"
Members of INMATES, CLOUD NOTHINGS, BAD NOIDS and a bunch of other Cleveland bands, old and new!
