"a long time ago in a land far far away, 4 guys created a second demo tape that never saw the light of day... until now few have ever heard or witnessed the strength of street knowledge... Re Mastered in Boston. Delivered to you by the tail end of Melbourne skinheads."

Rixe - Les Nerfs A Vif EP

"Just over a year since the release of the much loved debut 7" 'Coups Et Blessures', RIXE return with another four tracker on La Vida Es Un Mus. RIXE have gone from total obscurity to headlining festivals and gigs in Canada, North America and England and these four new tracks are a clear reason why. Standout 'Hexagone' opens the EP sounding like 'New Age' era BLITZ with extra bite and bile, 'A Contre-Courant' follows with a stomping primitive bass and drum attack before the razor sharp guitar work and growling vocals come in. On the flip the venom and intensity continues with 'Rapport de force' before the self titled track 'Rixe' ends this latest Oi! attack with a track that starts like a late 70's UK SUBS hit before heading into classic 80's French Oi!. RIXE are special and these four tracks show more reasons why."

FOSTER CARE - Sterilization LP

"It’s been almost four years since New York’s Foster Care put out their debut album "Bad Vibe City "and we’ve been anxiously awaiting a follow up. Well the wait is finally over.  Foster Care is back with another banger of an LP and it’s gonna knock you out.  In their downtime the guys did more than terrorize the neighborhood bars. They’ve been sharpening their knives and waiting for the right time to pounce. Well apparently that time is now and this record is razor sharp and heading straight for the throat. Every bit as punchy as the first but more dialed in. The hooks are bigger, the guitars are meaner, and Chris Teenager sounds as vicious as ever.  24 minutes fist pumping, head rattling ,negative punk perfection for 2016. 100% TOTAL PUNK!"

Gaucho - Desplazados EP

"The darkness and hate of living in the modern day is inescapable. People will always try to control you, force their ideologies on you and bind you with their ridiculous laws. Sooner or later you will get tired and hit back. And if true passion is there, you will succeed. It is hard not to hear the passion on this record. Gaucho delivers a Colombia-via-Canada raw hardcore pogo march to the death of tyrants far and wide. Members of S.H.I.T. give us a 5 song window into the struggle for a higher quality of life and we thank them for that."

Soda Boys - Soda Boys

"Five song demo from some St. Louis hotdoggers that sounds a hell of a lot like the Gizmos dragged into the modern age, real rock'n'roll sounds from the front edges of the KBD-era, garage-rock with fun hooks and a Penetrators-esque delivery. Recorded lo-fi, these dudes play their guts out, the singer actually sings, there are some ripping solos and riffs too - these kids can play. 'Go Girl Crazy'-era Dictators should be mentioned in this conversation as well as the Dolls without the make-up/glam. Outstanding stuff, all five songs are about girls, soda, burgers, hot dogs and America. I'm excited about this one. The singer is just called The Soda Jerk and the other dudes have awesome and dumb soda-punk pseudonymns."
