"2nd EP from Ryan (Social Cirkle, Confines) and Jen (Nuclear Family,
Nervous Trend). 4 new tracks that build on the peace-punk/’Penis Envy’
vibe of the debut record whilst adding some post-punk touches and a more
hardcore edge in places."
Drew Owens from SICK THOUGHTS new project, this time in HARDCORE territory. Raw, loud, nasty and demented as fuck. As if SICK THOUGHTS couldn't get even more punk. FFO: japanese HCpunk(gai, aburadako) and midwest 80's USHC
"young guns from Northwest Indiana playing early Dischord Records riffs
the way they should be played; with absolutely no regard for anyone. In a
(literal) state of Neo-Nazis, economic collapse, and no future, these
four teens are writing music that reflects the fact that while some kids
are growing up looking at Facebook and a college education, the land
that America forgot is raising children destined to a steel mill that
will be closing before they are even old enough to drink. No hope, no
future, oi, oi, oi?"
"Finally after months and months of waiting the Stupid Life 7" is being
unleashed upon the world. Stupid Life has been playing around the Los
Angeles area for over a year honing their skills and becoming a staple
of the LA punk scene with their charismatic live shows and infectiously
catchy songs. As demonstrated by their name they take cues from classic
Kyushu noise punk a la Confuse and Gai but have an underlying Swankys
groove that propels the songs into Japanese pop madness filled with
guitar leads, outrageous solos, blasts of noise, and some of the
downright most memorable songs in modern punk. Quite possibly the best
noise punk band that isn't a noise punk band, Stupid Life are all
incredibly talented musicians who do not hide behind a wall of noise and
distortion to disguise their inability to play; instead contorting and
manipulating the noise to suit their needs. Hands down one of the best
releases I have ever worked on and I am incredibly proud to bring the
world Stupid Life."
"Following two lauded and highly publicized demo tapes, Australia's
SIMFUCKERS finally unleash their debut 7" upon the world and what an
ungodly racket it is. Originally to be released on a German label, Video
Disease rescued this record from the pit of obscurity it was bound to
drop in to so it would reach a much more receptive and rabid audience.
Six songs of snotty, nasty punk that seethes angst and frustration.
Blown out, ugly, and downright idiotic songs that could only come from
some of the master minds that helped make Vaginors and Bloodclot Faggots
so special. HAIL THE NEW DAWN OF AUSTRALIAN PUNK!!!"
Despite the fact that they’re nestled all the way in the southwestern
corner of the US (Phoenix to be exact), it’s likely that Gay Kiss has
visited your town sometime in the past few years. They’re a touring
machine, and the band’s remarkable work ethic is apparent on this, their
second full-length release and first for Sorry State. When a band plays
this much they get a tightness and cohesiveness that you just can’t
fake, and indeed Hoax are probably Gay Kiss’s only rivals in riding a
pit-clearing groove. More than just a particularly tasty salad of mosh
riffs, though, Preservation Measures is dense, complex, and
ambitious, melding the best parts of skewed punk like Rudimentary Peni,
forward-thinking hardcore like Double Negative, and ambitious yet heavy
90s noise rock into a sound that is 100% their own.
