Upcoming: SHEER MAG 7"

I'm pretty excited to let you know that Static Shock will be releasing the debut 7" from SHEER MAG for the UK and Europe! This was released by the band last year on their Wilsuns Wilsuns label and quickly grew into one of my favourite singles of recent memory.



Here's the write up for the record, courtesy of Sean Forbes:
"The debut 7" from Philadelphia's SHEER MAG finally gets a wider UK and European release! Sheer Mag seemingly came out of nowhere last Autumn with this killer four track EP. It is the only record of recent times that manages to sound like a mix of a classic Seventies rock record, power pop and an obscure English DIY 7" from the late 70's. Everything sounds scrappy, fuzzy and scuzzy and it's all the better for it. The riff packed guitar work and fuzzed female vocals sit perfectly together whilst the crude rhythms just adds bounce and basic beats. Think a mix of the power pop delight of Protex, the lo-fi nature of The Seize, the riffs of Thin Lizzy and the powerful female vocal of Suzi Quatro. It shouldn't work but it does. It really does!"


The record will be out in late March (alongside the new Perspex Flesh 12"), but you should probably listen to it right now if you haven't already:

NEW TRACKS FROM PERSPEX FLESH AND IMPALERS

I've just uploaded a couple of tracks from upcoming releases to the label Bandcamp page:

The first one is from PERSPEX FLESH, who have just finished mixing and mastering their follow-up to last year's self titled LP. It's a 12" EP called 'Ordered Image' and you can check out the first track right here:


You can expect the record to be out in March.

Also at the plant right now is the UK/European pressing of the incredible 'Psychedelic Snutskallar' 12" from Austin's IMPALERS. This originally came out in the USA on 540 Records last Autumn, and I jumped at the chance to release it over here when offered. Check out the 11 minute(!) title track that takes up the whole of Side A below:



The Impalers will also be touring Europe this summer with New York's AJAX. More info to follow soon. The 12" is currently at the pressing plant and will be out for next month.

S.H.I.T. / Power Trip Tour

S.H.I.T. will be doing a few dates with Power Trip in Texas, as well as a couple of dates in Mexico this coming February:


THE NUMBER ONES LP back in print.

The second pressing of the debut LP from The Number Ones is back from the plant and now available! It's one of the best records of the year (in my opinion), and it's great to have it available once again. This time it's on white vinyl and limited to 250 copies.

S.H.I.T. - Feeding Time 7" out now!

First of all, thanks so much to everyone who attended the Static Shock Weekend over the last few days! There were so many great bands and so many people to thank. It was a great time and won't be forgotten for a while.

Now things are getting back to normal, we have a new release for you!

SSR026 - S.H.I.T. - Feeding Time 7"
"Over the last couple of years, Toronto's S.H.I.T. have come out of nowhere with their acclaimed demo tape, to releasing two killer 7"s, to even opening their own DIY venue, S.H.I.B.G.B's.

They are now back with their third 7" and it's just as essential as the two preceding. You may remember 'Feeding Time' as the opening track off their demo, it has now been re-recorded and is now even more of a rager than before. On the flip, you get a brand new track, the slow burning 'Private Lies'. The package is wrapped up with perfect artwork by Sam Ryser (Crazy Spirit, Dripper World and Dawn Of Humans).


The first 200 copies come on yellow vinyl for mailorder and a download code is included."

We also have a selection of S.H.I.T. shirts for sale as well as a big batch of new records up in the distro (like the new Hank Wood and The Hammerheads LP, Rakta 7", Arms Race 7", YDI and Cider reissue 7"s, NYC Mayhem LP, Ivy 12" and more!)

(Please note if you're ordering from America, this will soon be available from Katorga Works, Sorry State and a lot of the other usual suspects. Save yourself the shipping costs! Canadians, pick up a copy from the band at Not Dead Yet.)

In other label news, the Ultra Violent - Crime For Revenge 7" reissue is pretty much good to go, Perspex Flesh have recorded a new 12" EP, and Disguise have just finished writing their record. We're also going to be helping Warthog distribute their self released 'Chain Wallet Sessions' 7" across Europe. More to come on those very soon!

ULTRA-VIOLENT - Crime For Revenge 7"

Production has started on the new batch of releases, the first of which is going to be the first reissue on the label. ULTRA-VIOLENT's classic 'Crime For Revenge' EP!



Originally released on Riot City in 1983, it was the only vinyl outing for this band and in my opinion was probably the hardest sounding UK single of the era. This authorized and remastered reissue will also come with a collection of unreleased photographs and also the lyrics, which were not published at the time, alongside a few other cool bits and pieces. The first pressing will be 1000 copies, and is a split release with Video Disease Records. You can expect this one around late November / early December time.

Sadly, I'm unable to upload any tracks online due to licensing restrictions, but a few people have posted the tracks onto Youtube, so feel free to I urge to you check them out on there if you haven't heard this rager before, you won't regret it.

I'll be posting about the second release very shortly!
