SARCASM 7" coming soon

The test pressings for the debut 7" from London's SARCASM have just been approved and should be out next month. Here's a preview track:



SSR047: SARCASM - Malarial Bog EP
"Sarcasm from London release their debut EP on Static Shock after a great 5 Track demo 'Total Institution' on Far so Far in 2016. Sarcasm deal in angular post punk led by skeletal guitars and a locked in rhythm section. The vocals are nonchalant and sound like someone totally bored of life and everything that surrounds it. It just adds to the bleak and broody vibes that are sprinkled on each of the four tracks. The sound sits somewhere between a more sparse Crisis, The Fall - in the glory years on Step Forward Records and Hygiene. This is the sound of the past, the sound of now and the sound of dissatisfaction."

CAREER SUICIDE - Machine Response LP out now

Our second release of the year is the long awaited new LP from CAREER SUICIDE and it's out today! Here's the info:

SSR050: CAREER SUICIDE - Machine Response LP



"Writhing, sneering, tight cornered, "Machine Response" is the only acceptable follow up to the blistering and landmark "Attempted Suicide." Nearly ten years of beating around the bush, casually playing around the world and drip releasing music along the way, Career Suicide is backed by their best lineup ever, ready to break back through themselves with this new full length. Machine Response veers in and out of pure speed, bursts of melody, and chunky tempo shifts, indenting the long standing influence of early 80s USHC, late 70s punk, and a peppering of 60s swagger, with their own clearly developed style. Dallas Good (Sadies, Andre Williams, John Doe, Half Japanese, Elevator and a million more) presents a magnificently essential 2nd guitar and lead presence; a screaming contribution by great friend and long time supporter of the band, Souichi Hisatake, (Forward, GISM, Insane Youth, Gudon etc) to crack your brain up; artwork in collaboration with Ryan Tong of S.H.I.T. and Toronto's life-giving Faith/Void; and a thundering recording, once again helmed by the decorated and limitless in his pursuit of smooth hearing loss, Jon Drew, provide the most damaging clarity Career Suicide have been able to capture to date."

The LP comes with alternative artwork to the Deranged Records pressing as well as a fully printed innersleeve and download code.


We also have a stack of copies of the recent CAREER SUICIDE tour 7", which is also called 'Machine Response'. It has 3 brand new tracks and a Meccalisa cover. We're the only place in the UK and Europe with copies as far as I'm aware!

There's been a selection of pretty killer records coming through for the mailorder lately, including various bangers from HEAVY METAL, LIQUIDS, RAT CAGE, MAD VIRGINS, WARTHOG, ACRYLICS, WOUND MAN, S.H.I.T., EXOTICA and more. 

The next couple of releases we should have ready for you is the SHEER MAG comp LP, and the debut 7" from London's SARCASM. Expect those in the next month or so.

IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO - 'La Vita Silenziosa' 7" out today

Our first release of 2016 is now available!

SSR044: IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO - ' La Vita Silenziosa' 7"

Debut 7" EP from this new hardcore band based in Berlin, but with members from Italy, Mallorca and Australia (including people from DIAT and ORDEN MUNDIAL). IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO are here with the answer to the little asked question "What would Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers be like if they grew up in the American midwest?". Hardcore punk being played because it's all that they know how to do and sounding like their lives depend on it.

"Who put these 4 people in a room together?! What is the Italian version of Midwest USA? And how did it show up in Berlin? These weirdos look like they met at a bus station and together make up the ripping hardcore version of a house of cards that feels like it could fall apart at any moment, then it does but that’s actually how the song goes so uno, due, tre, quattro and on with the next one, kapisce paisan? Idiota is gonna teach you a little bit of Italian with some catchy romance language grunts and groans, the meanderings of a blue collar immigrant stuck in a kitchen behind a door, away from the public, away from people. This is the sound of pent up frustration and the things you do to keep your head above water in a world that doesn’t understand you and doesn’t want to try." - Onton

The record comes in a reverse board pocket sleeve with an insert and download code.

SHEER MAG - Compilation LP and CAREER SUICIDE - Machine Response LP up for Pre-Order now

We have two new records coming out in February that are now up for pre-order. Details are below!

SSR049:  SHEER MAG - Compilation LP


Sheer Mag’s Compilation LP features the Philadelphia rock band’s three seven-inches, released between 2014 and 2016. All twelve songs were recorded onto the same vintage 8-track tape machine, carted to various locations around Philadelphia. The first two were produced in a makeshift studio wedged between two bedrooms in the band’s former South Philly house, while the third came out of a practice space in the Port Richmond neighbourhood. Sequenced chronologically, the newly remastered songs reveal a young DIY band finding it's sound. 

The LP is packaged inside an embossed gatefold sleeve with a heavyweight printed innersleeve.
