    Punk 45: Extermination Nights in the Sixth City - Cleveland, OH 1975-80

    Soul Jazz Records' new 'Punk 45' album Extermination Nights in the Sixth City charts the rise of underground punk in the mid-west city of Cleveland, Ohio, which for many people is the true birthplace of punk music in the mid-1970s. Featuring a fantastic collection of punk 45 singles from Cleveland groups including Pere Ubu, electric eels, The Pagans, Rockets From The Tomb, Mirrors, X-X and more. The album follows on from Soul Jazz Records' earlier Punk 45 albums about USA and British punk (Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! and There Is No Such Thing As Society) as well as the cover art book Punk 45. Extermination Nights in the Sixth City coincides with the release of as a second album about Ohio's early punk scene, Burn, Rubber City, Burn - featuring the music scene of nearby Akron.

    The Modern Dance (Awaiting Repress)

    Weird sounds, frantic rock 'n roll riffs, cartoony vocals and a typical garage sound contribute to a landmark album in experimental rock music.

    Trout Steel

    The first artist-sanctioned reissue of iconoclastic English-born, Rome-based folk and experimental music legend Mike Cooper's classic 1970 album, this remastered version of Trout Steel presents a heady homebrew of lap steel and slide blues traditions, avant-jazz group improvisations, and studio explorations that presaged Cooper's adventurous work for decades to come. Cooper was forging connections between folk and experimental musics long before America got New or Weird. - Keith MolinÉ of Pere Ubu, for The Wire. One of the pre-eminent players on the Brit folk and blues scenes; what a ride Trout Steel is: exhilarating and adventurous each time it is played. - Thom Jurek, Allmusic

    U-Men

    This 3xLP Box Set Collects The Entire Studio-Recorded Output Of The U-Men


    Remastered


    Plus 5 Unreleased Songs


    With 16 Pages Of Photos, Liner Notes & Interviews With The Band


    Executive Produced By Jack Endino


    The U-Men are one of the best bands I've ever seen. They were
    hypnotic, frenetic, powerful and compelling. It was impossible to
    resist getting sucked into their weird, darkly absurd world. They
    effortlessly blended The Sonics, Link Wray, Pere Ubu, and
    Captain Beefheart. Their shows were loose-limbed, drunken
    dance parties and no two shows were alike. The U-Men were
    avant-garage explorers and, most importantly, they fucking
    rocked. I was lucky enough to live in their hometown and I saw
    them every chance I could.


    From 1983 to 1987, the U-Men were the undisputed kings of
    the Seattle Underground. No one else came close. They ruled a
    bleak backwater landscape populated by maybe 200 people.
    They were the only band that could unify the disparate
    sub-subcultures and get all 200 of those people to fill a room.
    Anglophilic, dress-dark Goths; neo-psych MDA acolytes; skate
    punks who shit in bathtubs at parties; Mod vigilantes who
    tormented the homeless with pellet guns; college kids who
    thought college kids were lame; Industrial Artistes; some random
    guy with a moustache; and eccentrics who insisted that they
    couldn't be pigeonholed: all coalesced around the U-Men.


    Sub Pop co-founder, Bruce Pavitt released the first record by the
    U-Men, a 4-song 12" EP on Bombshelter Records. By the time
    they had recorded songs for another record, Bruce was too broke
    to release it on his proto-Sub Pop label, so he hooked them up
    with Gerard Cosloy at Homestead Records. This was a big deal.
    Homestead had a heavy rep at the time with recent releases by
    Foetus, Nick Cave, Sonic Youth, and Big Black. I was sure that
    the release of their second 12", Stop Spinning, would propel the
    U-Men into the ranks of those Homestead acts and the
    worldwide underground would get hip to Seattle's finest.
    Following the departure of bassist Jim Tillman (replaced by Tom
    Hazelmyer of Amphetamine Reptile Records, and then Tony
    Ransome), the band recorded two fantastic singles, and recorded
    their one full-length album, Step on a Bug, for Black Label,
    which was run out of Fallout Records. They became increasingly
    disenchanted with the direction the Seattle underground was
    heading and called it quits in 1989.


    The U-Men had nothing to do with Grunge. They were their own
    unique thing. I loved them and I still miss them. I remember
    thinking at the time that most of their recordings were a little
    soft and didn't capture the power of the band live. Now, thirty
    years later, their records sound great to me and we are lucky that
    they exist. I'm stoked that Sub Pop complied these long
    out-of-print records and scrounged up some unreleased songs so
    that everyone has a chance to take a trip back to old weird
    Seattle.

    Horrible Chamber

    Gnaw is a New York quintet featuring former Khanate belligerent Alan Dubin. Water Rite-- the first philippic from their forthcoming second LP Horrible Chamber-- is a delightful seven-minute span of punishment. As drums splatter against a multi-dimensional electronic framework, crisscrossing howls and ghoulish utterances suggest Pere Ubu jamming with Wolf Eyes on the bow of a sinking ship. Dubin's venomous speak-sing has lost nothing since Khanate's heyday, but with Gnaw, his stately menace is replaced by red-eyed paranoia.

    Golden Worry

    Thank You could only come from one city, at one moment in time. Like Pere Ubu's Cleveland and Joy Division's Manchester, post-industrial Baltimore serves as simultaneous playground, obstacle course, and muse to this show-stealing art-rock trio. The band's urgent collision of rhythm, melody, and noise has placed them at the creative center of today's Baltimore renaissance, sharing stages and tours with such acts as Beach House (Sub Pop), Lungfish (Dischord), Celebration (4AD), Dan Deacon (Carpark), Zomes (Holy Mountain), Jason Urick, and Future Islands (both Thrill Jockey).



    Thank You's first full-length follows closely on the heels of 2009's sold-out 12 EP Pathetic Magic. A band that once limited its vocals to hums, grunts, and chants has entered the next phase, delivering a stellar collection of challenging rock-and-roll songs. But Golden Worry eschews easy, anthemic sing-alongs, instead dipping into the vocabularies of Krautrock, post-punk, no-wave, and noise to produce what is at once Thank You's most melodic and most aggressive record.

    Disconnect

    TV Ghost's third full-length for In The Red, Disconnect is a journey to the center of dreams. The Lafayette, Indiana, band displays a newfound maturity, incorporating churning rhythms and psychedelic drone into a lush torrent of gaseous keys, sprawling guitars and eerie melody. Think Porcupine-era Echo and the Bunnymen and Tago Mago-era Can run through a Cure Pornography blender.


    "TV Ghost's 2009 debut LP, Cold Fish, is a maelstrom-10 hectic songs ripped out in 25 minutes. Stuffed to the seams with wiry guitars, trembling keyboards, crashing beats, and Tim Gick's mad-man warble, it has the creepy tension of a post-punk haunted house where the Cramps, the Scientists, or Pere Ubu might leap out from the shadows at any moment. The band deftly balances precision and abandon-every moment sounds lunatic and unhinged, yet no track collapses into complete anarchy.


    "That abandon has subsided a bit on Mass Dream, which doubles the length of its predecessor despite having only one more track. That's by design-Gick says that his intent was to "space things out more, let the songs breathe." And while I miss Cold Fish's farther-flung moments, the band has countered that loss with songs that are deeper and more open. Now, along with all the post-punk echoes rattling around, unexpected reference points pop up. At times I hear the enervated drama of Echo & the Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch, or the stridency of Ian Svenonius during his Nation of Ulysses days. And TV Ghost prove as adept at stark dread as they are at fevered bedlam...."

    Under Color Of Official Right


    There's a humanness and empathy to this material that's increasingly rare in rock songs.- Pitchfork


    Their road is straight; their gospel is truth...If nothing else, the hooks alone should be enough
    to keep you coming back." - Nashville's Dead


    Protomartyr's sound is distinct, but hard to pin down with human language. ... It'd be much easier to describe
    using a series of buzzing tones and propulsive beats, but then you'd be listening to Protomartyr.- KEXP


    In a city full of brilliant people with dead-end jobs and dampened by bitter-cold winters,
    playing music offers a cheap outlet. Protomartyr's taut, austere rock was incubated in a
    freezing Detroit warehouse littered with beer cans and cigarette butts and warmed, feebly,
    by space heaters. Short songs made for short practices, and the band learned quickly not
    to waste time. Despite the cold, Protomartyr emerged with a sound that is idiosyncratic but
    relatable, hooky but off-kilter.


    Protomartyr's economical rock elicits comparisons to possible antecedents like Pere Ubu
    or The Fall as well as local contemporaries like Frustrations or Tyvek (whose frontman Kevin
    Boyer played bass in an early iteration of Protomartyr). Singer Joe Casey's dry declarative
    snarl serves as a reliable anchor, granting his bandmates - guitarist Greg Ahee, drummer
    Alex Leonard and bassist Scott Davidson - the opportunity to explore textures and
    reinforce the rhythm section. This is never more apparent than on the band's sophomore
    LP and Hardly Art debut, Under Color of Official Right. Where 2012's No Passion All
    Technique favored comparatively straightforward punk structures, Under Color takes a
    more exploratory approach. "Tarpeian Rock" places punk vitriol against a minimalist
    backing and "Scum, Rise!" casts shadows with guitars that alternately chime and clang.


    The cheap outlet, crafted by cold hands in a poorly insulated practice space has, perhaps
    unwittingly, become a model of Motor City efficiency. And, more than that, it's produced a
    stunner of a sophomore album.

    "Whole generations of basement-tape shenanigans are baked into their lurching, overdriven sound, alternatingly stripped-down and blown-out" - SPIN


    Take the 101 north out of Los Angeles, and you'll pass by Agoura Hills,where the core duo of
    the band Dub Thompson grew up. Whatever you see in that town won't readily prepare you for
    the music they wrote while there, but you're free to look.


    "Most everyone who's in a group who's our age lives on the Internet," says guitarist Matt Pulos.
    "The kinds of thingsthat have shaped our band aren't anchored to any one time or place."


    Pulos and his bandmate, drummer Evan Laffer, are currently both 19 years old, and are putting
    that line of thought to the test; their musical influences travel from the Midwestern malaise of
    Big Black and Pere Ubu, to Kraut pioneers Can and Kraftwerk, while bowing to the British
    belligerence of The Fall and This Heat.


    Recording the album while living with Foxygen's Jonathan Rado at his rented house in
    Bloomington, the band had its first taste of a heavy Indiana summer, and all the humidity and
    insect life that buzzes along with it. "We woke up every day, ate hard-boiled eggs and stood on
    a porch," says Pulos of the experience.


    Their first collection of songs slyly unties the shoes of genre and convention, shape shifts
    mischievously, and tramples on the promises delivered on the name itself.
    There are only eight songs on this rangy debut.


    Intense blasts of hook-filled noise rock ("Hayward!"), rock steady marionette stomp ("No
    Time"), hypnotic bouts of doomy poetics ("Epicondyles"), outlandishly sexy groove rock
    ("Dograces"), and a number of other bite-sized forays into parts unknown are made manifest
    across 9 Songs.


    The vibes are strong here. Pulos sings and plays like he's working out long-standing grudges,
    pulling the most sinewy tones from an acoustic guitar and ripping huge chunks of demon flesh
    out of his electric. Laffer matches him step for step on the drums, an exacting presence behind
    the kit who pushes even the band's more placid moments into bouts of tension. Together they
    succeed in animating their musical ideas to startling, almost unnatural life. Reverb units,
    keyboards,samples and processing gluing everything together,saturated in the August heat and
    worn in until they sound second nature, it's like somehow you've been listening to these songs
    forever.
