New webstore now open.

After experiencing the questionable joys of having the labels webstore of the last 3-4 years hacked last week, I've taken the opportunity to start fresh and put a whole new one up, it should be way more efficient and less of a pain to use!

You can find that at this link:

SSR021 : NO - Great Space 12" out now!

Another month, and another new release! This time we bring you the second 12" from London's NO.


"After releasing one of the best hardcore records of 2012, London's No return with their second 12", The Great Space. No has progressed immensely since their first record, honing in on their sonic assault and pushing the boundaries of what they are capable of producing. The songwriting on "The Great Space" is well-crafted, while still sounding incredibly chaotic and vibrant. The vocals gnash and gnarl, while the band cranks out every song as fast and as hard as they can. No gives the illusion that things are on the brink of completely falling apart. But, this is where they truly excel; No can reel the listener back in from the point of destruction and take them where they never thought hardcore could go. Mastered by Daniel Husayn for maximum earslaughter." - Branden Hutchins

There is also a limited amount of copies on white vinyl for mailorder only, but not too many!


Download / Stream here: http://staticshockrecords.bandcamp.com/album/great-space-2 (Although, feel free to donate!)

Please note that this record has been released in America by Video Disease records, so you should order directly from there if you're from the USA, as it'll will work out significantly cheaper postage-wise.

No are hosting a record release show in London tomorrow (30th November 2013) at Power Lunches with Die, Family Outing and Street Beef also playing. Information can be found here.

Other News:
We're currently working on a bunch of new records, these include the debut lp from Perspex Flesh, which is currently being re-mastered, and will be sent to the plant as soon as it's ready, expect that before the end of the year, or the very start of 2014. Also the new single from The #1's, and 7"s from Frau, S.H.I.T and Warthog.

SSR020: The Love Triangle - Clever Clever LP is out today!

After a couple of pressing plant hiccup's, the debut lp from The Love Triangle is out now and available to order!


Heretofore, the Love Triangle's recordings have been marked by a particularly raw, aggressive, and even ugly take on classic power pop. Sure, the choruses were huge, but the recordings were ear-splittingly raw and aggressive. However, they've changed things up a bit for their first long-player, opting for a cleaner recording that assures nothing is lost in the translation to wax. The essential elements are still there--Tim's four-on-the-floor drumming, Josh's meandering walking bass lines, and Louis's thrillingly melodic vocals and guitar--but you can actually hear them all rather than just inferring their presence through a wall of feedback and fuzz. The effect is a full-length that recalls the classic songwriting of Nuggets greats like the Electric Prunes and the Seeds as much as it does the more melodic end of the '77 set like Protex, the Lurkers, and the Boys. An LP so good that we don't even need to tell you the band is members of Diat, Good Throb, Die, No, The Smear, CCTV and ex-Shitty Limits to get you to buy it.

Please note that this LP has been released in America by Sorry State Records, if you live there, it makes way more sense for you to go direct!

I also have a very small amount of leftover copies of the record release show version, these all have hand marble painted sleeves that are hand pasted onto old record sleeves. The records are test pressings, and are hand stamped. Only 50 were made, and the vast majority were sold at the show. These are for sale in the webstore too, but probably won't last too long.

TLT have also just recorded a brand new tape, and I have copies of that available too, believe me when I say it has some of their catchiest tracks yet.

You can order the LP from right here, or if you would prefer, you can download it for free from here (feel free to make a donation though!).

Things have been a little slow distro-wise lately, but I have just added some cool records and demos from local bands such as Die, Hunger, Frau and will be working on getting loads of killer stuff back in immediately.

Thanks for the support as always!

Unfortunately, there has been a delay in getting the Love Triangle lp's back from the pressing plant. As soon as they are with me, they'll be going up for sale. Hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later.

Some News - September 2013

I've been neglecting updating this for sometime now, but here is some news:

First of all, the debut lp from THE LOVE TRIANGLE is going to be out this weekend. It's called 'Clever Clever' and is pretty great. You can check out a track from it right here:

This is going to be a split release with Sorry State Records who are releasing it in the USA. So, you should order from there if American / Canadian, it'll be way cheaper and most likely way more convenient. The record release show happened a couple of weeks ago and I made up a bunch of test presses and hand marble painted some paste-on sleeves, they came out looking pretty cool and I have a handful left, which I'll put up for sale at the same time. There will only be a few though so you may want to act sooner rather than later if you care about that kinda thing.

Following that, in October the second 12" from NO will be released. This one is called 'Great Space' and features 7 new tracks, including this one:

The recording is a little rawer than the last one (although definitely not verging towards raw punk) and the songs more frantic. This is another split release, and Video Disease will be handling this one in the USA. So, same as before, order from them if it makes more sense. There will be a bunch on coloured vinyl for mailorder, and we'll both have copies for sale.

In November, the debut lp from PERSPEX FLESH will be making it's appearance, and it's one I'm really excited about. The record is being mastered at the moment, and I'll post a track nearer the time. Following that, 7"s from VIOLENT FUTURE and FRAU will be next. I'm not sure if these will be this side of 2013, but time will tell.

Finally, a few 7"s are currently out of print (URBAN BLIGHT, VIOLENT REACTION, and I'm also down the last copies of the second press of the CREEM 7"), but I'll work on represses when I get a chance. Thanks for the support as always.
