NEW!
DICKS, THEHate the Police from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

The first legitimate issue in 32 years! Originally on the band's own Radical Records, this has been out of print since its initial pressing. Truly one of the greatest and most sought after American punk singles produced in the 80's. Hugely influential to folks as far apart as Mudhoney and Limp Wrist. Unapologetically communist, gay and pissed off. Faithful reproduction of the cover and insert included.

F.U.2.Punk Rock from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Fake Punk can be some of the best punk! The late 70's had a bevy of great punk/power pop one off bands. Often secretly and not so secretly fronted by members of famous/semi-famous rock groups. The Pack, Pork Dukes, The Greedies, The Monks (UK) top amongst them but one of the longest and loudest lauded is F.U.2.. Raw, snotty, and jammed up with hooks and attitude. The group was essentially the 60's garage/freakbeat band Downliners Sect under an assumed Punk name and recorded over a case of Vodka. What came out is some of the realest fake punk you'll ever here. THE EXPLODING HEARTS would later cover their classic "Sniffin' Glue" which many incorrectly think was a Hearts original. The album has been bootlegged many times since it's release over 30 years ago and is finally being treated to a legitimate reissue sourced from the original tapes! Limited run so grab it while you can.
     
 
NEW!
HICKEYVarious States of Disrepair from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

2xLP collecting singles and comp tracks, with an additional nine songs that were not on the original CD release, from one of the most heralded and influential bands of the 90's SF Mission District scene. Hickey was a genre-evolving punk band that combined melody and noise with politics, drugs and humor and released some of the most unique records of the last 20 years. Probably the most highly anticipated release on 1-2-3-4 Go! Records, it Includes the previously unreleased song "Lady Naugahyde" and an unheard alternate version of "The Naked Cult", in addition to 7 other songs left off the original release. 32 songs total! All songs have been remastered and taken from as many of the original tapes as were available.

SHANNON AND THE CLAMSI Wanna Go Home from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

The sound of a prom band in 1964 getting dosed with acid and having the sweetest lovelorn freak out. Imagine a brawling Etta James, backed up by the 13th Floor Elevators singing Shangri La's tunes. It doesn't sound exactly like that, but imagine it. If I ever get a time machine that's the first thing I'm going to try to get to happen. Shannon has a voice that can go from a sweet girl group croon to a bluesy ballsy growl before you realize you're headed for the floor. This is their debut full length following hot on the heels of the "Hunk Hunt" 7" on Weird Hug Records. Recorded by Matthew Melton of the Bare Wires/Snakeflower 2. On tour in the US through November! Do not miss this band live. Seriously. Just about everyone in the states is going to get a chance to see them in November. For fans of Thee Oh Sees, Nobunny, King Khan and BBQ Show, Ginny Arnell.

NEW!
TRASHIESTeenage Rattlesnakes from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Limited to 500 copies on trash colored vinyl! A lot goes into the rattle of Teenage Rattlesnakes. In wading through the gunk, you’ll hear psychedelic garage moderne, far enough removed from their domestic contemporaries to be mistaken for Euro gang-chanters conducting a tribal punk séance. But they’re American Men, able to see the art inherent in pink sludge sustenance. Moments of severe stomp and circus tomfoolery recall the frenzied Avant Garde Rock’n’Roll of The Monks, with further irritants injected to make it all the more jarring. A recent inactive period saw members disperse to outfits like TACOCAT, UNNATURAL HELPERS or UZI RASH, producing offerings infinitely more civilized than expected.Perhaps the toxicity so often associated with the band enabled them to grow extra appendages, but the performances captured here move so far past the plod that it’ll no doubt shock those familiar with the band’s early droppings. One can’t help but believe that THE TRASHIES have mutated into (gasp) a band with (gasp!) ideas and (gasp!!) the musical chops to see them through to the fullest. Of course, there are trade-offs: each album comes with a redeemable coupon for one Silkwood-shower. (Mitch Cardwell) Gunk rock. Mangled Monks worship. Glue addled bug smokers. Strange times. Fever dreams. Cretin Hop.
     
 
NEW!
ZERO BOYSLivin' In The 80's from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Reissue of the KBD comp classic "Livin' In The 80's". Still one of the most sought after singles in all of US punk history, routinely fetching $600 to $800. Zero Boys came from what most in the early punk world would consider absolutely nowhere, Indiana. On the strength of their self released debut 7" (Livin' In The 80's) and their Nimrod Records issued debut LP (Vicious Circle) they broke through that land locked and corn bordered land in to the consciousness of every self respecting punk at the time and that still echoes today. Secretly Canadian reissued Vicious Circle as well as a compilation of rare early material on the "History Of..." LP a few years back making the bulk of their early catalog available again. With their blessing 1-2-3-4 Go! is batting a little clean up by making this classic single available again on the format it was intended to be heard on.
     
 
NEW!
ZERO BOYSPro-Dirt from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

**We have RED vinyl; if you specifically want this color, please make a note in the comments section when you check out! The first new Zero Boys material in 20 years! Pairs nicely with the "Livin' In The 80's" reissue in terms of speed and tone exhibiting the more KBD punk rock and roll tendencies of that very early period rather than the speed and angst of the Vicious Circle. A great return to early form!
     
  ARRIVALS / BROKEDOWNS from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Stevo sez: "3 new songs from both of these Chicagoland bands. The Arrivals have a new record on Recess called "Marvels of Industry" that I highly recommend. I'll use the shallow plug of "Paddy from D4 is in this band now and on this record" for those of you who enjoy such things, because it's in your best musical interest to buy this thing no matter what pretenses it's under. The Brokedowns have no Paddy, but they do have a record on Thick called "New Brains for Everyone" - check it out!"
     
  BADDAT FOR TRUBBELDet Har Ar Inte New York from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Finally a US issue of this modern Swedish punk classic. Now with their ISO 9004 7" added to the B-Side of the LP. 20 songs total now blazing through in just 28 minutes. Now in a full color cover with an insert that translates the swedish lyrics in to english! MRR had this to say about the album "...Imagine pairing a classic Euro Killed By Death sound (sung in Swedish, no less) with a lean toward pub rock and the amphetamine-fueled R&B that dominated the UK in the mid-�70s. While that might spell trouble for anyone unwilling to look past, I dunno, MASSHYSTERI for their Euro-punk fix, this amounts to nothing short of a fucking lightning bolt to the rest of us! It�s refreshing to hear a band mining the sounds of the initial punk era but shrugging off the pose and fashion-aping, opting instead for legit soul and passion. No easy feat, my friends... an absolutely perfect, jaw-dropping record."
     
  CUTE LEPERSAdventure Time from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

The Cute Lepers have been on an archeological dig for the past four years. They've been busy unearthing long lost punk and power pop gems, running them through their own proprietary filter and spitting them back out at high speed. Since the band's formation shortly after the the flame out of Seattle legends The Briefs (of which founding members Steve E. Nix and Steve Kicks were apart) they've released three LP's, too many singles to count on labels across two continents and toured wherever there is road to set a van down or land a plane on. For better or worse they're unstoppable! Adventure Time is the third Cute Lepers full length, and they continue to navigate the same territory pioneered by bands like The Buzzcocks, The Beat, The Jam, and The Boys pioneered a generation before but with the quirks and crooked teeth you'd expect from two guys who used to be in The Briefs. In fact, in a huge nod from that generation, Duncan Reid of The Boys wrote the song "77" and gave it to the Lepers for this album. In addition to the usual Cute Lepers formula there are also a number of new subtle tweeks including the best saxophone use in a punk song since The Saints "Know Your Product" on opening track "Tribute To Charlie". The song itself is an ode to UK Subs frontman Charlie Harper by name and a number of other die- hards in spirit. Like the last two LP's this record is an undeniable ear worm. I defy you to not wake up tomorrow after hearing the LP without "Tribute To Charlie", "All Of This Attention Is Killing Me" or "Head Over Heels" in your head first thing.

  CUTE LEPERS, THESmart Accessories from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Their second full length album! Same formula as last time, classic Briefs-esque song writing (2 members of the Briefs are in this outfit) run through a power pop filter, but this time with more jagged teeth! For fans of The Briefs, Spits, Tranzmitors, Beat, Dickies, Power Pearls and a touch of Mod revival! Comes on RED or BLACK vinyl!
     
  CUTE LEPERS, THEYou Don't Have To Belong (To The Religious Right) from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Limited to 1000 copies only! No represses! The latest from Steve E. Nix's (The Briefs) new band The Cute Lepers. "You Don't Have To Belong (To The Religious Right)" comes from the new Cute Lepers full length "Smart Accessories" due out on 1-2-3-4 Go! Records in December. This is Power Pop with teeth! B-Side is a cover of the Starjets classic song "Any Danger Love", which will not appear on the full length.
     
  DRUNKEN BOATDrunken Boat from Salinas/1-2-3-4-Go!

Urgent, beautiful, rough around the edges, intelligent punk from Portland, OR. Possibly the best band of this style since Crimpshrine.

Rock'n'roll savior from the heavens below! EC is the rotten lo-fi rock'n'roll brainchild of Jason Testasecca. JT is half of "Mandy & Jason" who's tape you may have heard from Burger Records, a touring member of the Nobunny band in various roles at various times and recording engineer to the stars (Harlem, Midnight Snaxxx, Goochi Boiz and many others).

  FUTURE VIRGINS / ONION FLAVORED RINGS from 1-2-3-4-Go!

Two new songs each from two bands that put out criminally few records. If you like Crimpshrine, Allergic To Bullshit, Shotwell, Sexy, Jack Palance Band, ADD/C, Hidden Spots and Giant Bags of Weed...these guys do too. So much so that they were in those bands! Was that a clever way of saying "ex-members of"? No? Well I'll try harder next time!

A few handfuls of change. An espresso machine and soymilk. A few boxes of cereal. A bag of weed. A bottle of whiskey. A dozen satanic ninjas. A Jimi Hendrix 7". A yo-yo. A copy of Lucifer Rising. A copy of The Holy Mountain. A chunk of opium. or: Git Some is a band from Denver, Colorado consisting of 4 dudes (including Chuck and Neil from Planes Mistaken For Stars) who grew up on 80's punk rock, Reagan-era America, and shitty weed, discharging cathartic bursts of noise that shatter angst and inhibitions. cosmic rock, by way of wild abandon, loud-ass guitar, bass and drums, and an explosive singer. It's all the good things about hardcore stripped of the agenda, all the great things about metal and hard rock stripped of the unnecessary machismo. Vinyl comes in a full color gatefold sleeve and includes a coupon for a one-time download of high quality MP3's of the entire album!

  HELLO SHITTY PEOPLEHello Shitty People from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

"Hello Shitty People left this world in 2001, leaving behind a 7" on This Here Records and an LP recorded but never released. I bought that 7" based on their band name alone almost 9 years ago. How could a band called "Hello Shitty People" not be good? Anyway I've honestly treasured that little record ever since. The true early Crimpshriney spirit of East Bay Pop punk had been picked up, kicked in the side and made weirder by these southern gents in a way I honestly don't think has been done better by anyone claiming to do the same thing. It's dark, it's positive, it has bass lines that make Matt Freeman look like a rank amateur. I'm only half joking about that last one. These guys came from and went on to be in bands like Los Canadians, Radon, Cortez The Killer and a million others."

Available in our NEW STORE!

Holy shit I re-released a Hickey record! Major accomplishment for me. The pinnacle of 90's SF Mission district punk. Noisy but melodic. Retarded but insanely intelligent. One of my very favorite bands ever. They're like the Radon of the Bay Area. Probably the best band to come out of the area ever but way underappreciated. This is their only proper full length. Originally on Probe Records.

  HOUSE ON FIRE from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Sadly short lived project with Alex from Panthro UK, Todd from The Draft/Unitas, my buddy Jim and another cat whose name I can't remember right now on drums. Fucking amazing Gainesville hardcore. Better than Panthro in my opinion. I realize those are fighting words. Bring it!
     
  IN THE RED / GIT SOME from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

After a few years away, Mike Hale from Gunmoll is back in a full band and recording again. In The Red take up essentially where Gunmoll left off with Board of Rejection: extremely powerful Jawbreaker- by-way-of-Hot Water Music-style punk. Git Some on the other side consists of Neil and Chuck from Planes Mistaken For Stars, Lucious Fairchild of a hundred Denver bands and Andy Lindstrom. You ever see that picture of Van Halen hanging out with Black Sabbath? Well, replace Van Halen with Black Flag and have them all sitting on a mountain of weed, and you begin to get a rough idea of what Git Some are about. Two songs by each band, and cover art illustrated by Cristy Road!

Cody from Shannon and the Clams digs out of the sand and hiccups and hollers his way through a forest of love. Populated by romance, little pink trolls, witches, ravens, Licorice Lords, cheeseburgers, fries and dumpsters of unending glory! If Buddy Holly had lived to front a bare bones version of The Monks and hang out with Marc Bolan you'd say this record kind of sounds like that. Comes with a download code for you futuristic dragons. **Includes download code!
     
  LENZWays To End A Day from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

After a pair of EP's (a 7" on SS Records and a 12" on Tic Tac Totally), Lenz has finally released their full length album. Self described as "Ice-Pop" they deliver a seamless set of hook-laden, introspective pop that is equal parts cosmic, jangly, and punchy. A modern, occasionally prog-ish, take on 80's indie/pop rock like Modern English and Echo & The Bunnymen that has easily shared a live stage with bands like DIIV and Sam Flax. Featuring current and former members of Girls, The Cuts, Shalants, Time Flys, Andy Human, Buzzer, The Impediments and Glitz. Comes with a download code!
     
  PERSONAL AND THE PIZZASRaw Pie from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

FOR FANS OF: The Ramones, The Stooges, chains, leather, brass knuckles, cruising, bruising and petty larceny. 1-2-3-4 Go!'s first foray in to the New Jersey badlands. This isn't muscle bound fake tan guido shit. This is the real New Jersey. Pizza eating, beer drinking, chain wielding guido thug rock. Too fuckin' real to be fake! The LP features newly mastered (some actually mastered for the first time) versions of the songs from their sold out singles and comp tracks (on labels like Rob's House, Burger, Bubbledumb, Florida's Dying, Windian etc) plus studio versions of "$7.99 For Love" and "Pepperoni Eyes". As a band, the Pizzas don't add up right. Probably due to the fact none of them graduated high school. They bend and meld uber familiar elements of bands like The Ramones and The Stooges in ways that most other bands fail miserably at. The shit doesn't make sense. After a few chains across the face I've learned to stop questioning it. (**includes download code!)
     
  RINGERSCurses from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

The first Ringers album, finally released on vinyl in a version available to more than a handful of people in New England! Comes in a snazzy LP jacket, with an insert this time too. This band picks up where Sirens left off. Most of the reviews imply that it sounds like Tim Armstrong writing songs for Dillinger Four. That's a description that would make me buy this if I hadn't put it out but honestly I don't think it's accurate. I am literally the only person in the world who thinks so. People sort of snoozed on this until the '06 fest when they finally got to see them and were stoked as all get out.
     
  RINGERSDetention Halls from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Their 2nd full length! Well-written gritty pop punk for late night coffee shop romantics and anyone trying to figure what happened to their youth and where they're supposed to go from here. I think that just about covers everyone! This is also a band that gets "influences" right: influences are supposed to run in the background, providing some of the energy for what you're doing, not a playbook for your song writing. I hear hints of everything that made 90's East Bay pop punk great, a touch of '77, on occasion the drive of true post-hardcore and enough inspiration and originality to make it all into something different.

  RINGERSHurry Up & Wait from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Their third album. 7 songs clocking in at just under 20 minutes. It's like riding a trainwreck with a smile on your face, a drink in your hand and your heart on your sleeve. You're scared to death but still trying to have a good time. I honestly can't think of a better metaphor for the lyrical content of this album. It confronts the worst parts of life with out reveling in them and accepts the reality that it's not all bad times without being sappy and overly positive. Musically you're getting gritty pop punk with elements of everyone from The Clash, The Replacements, Rancid, and oft compared to contemporaries like Bent Outta Shape and Dillinger Four...although I honestly don't hear the last two, but I accept that other people do. Every album results in more complex song writing and delivery, and if they can keep the train on the tracks I think they'll be one of those bands that everyone else gets compared to in a few years. Real talk.
Recorded by Will Killingsworth (Orchid/Ampere/Dead Air Studios).

  SANDWITCHES, THESummer of Love from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Two real haunters that at times remind me a lot of Elizabeth Fraser's vocal work (especially on Summer of Love), but with more real words and deciperable lyrics! I'm sure you've been beat over the head with it before but just in case you don't know The Sandwitches is the new project of Grace and Heidi, formerly of The Fresh and Onlys. I was a huge fan of their voices in that band and it's great to get them up front and center for a change! Kelley Stoltz said this about them... "Imagine a 60's girl-group is on tour and their van breaks down near a gothic castle high on the hill, Dario Argento invites them in to perform a concert for his tweaked actors in a big dark red room inside and, if the dream is right, it's The Sandwitches - they'd fit right in with those misfits and speak the same language. I'd like to be there to dance. Close your eyes and you'll see what I mean. These are fab, haunting tunes wrapped in tender weird pop. That's what we got here. A heavy party you want to hang out at."
     
  SHANNON AND THE CLAMSOzma from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Ozma is perhaps one of the sweetest odes to a dearly departed, snoring, rabbit munching mutt! Muppet Babies is the long time crowd pleasing cover of the theme song from the Jim Henson cartoon classic from the 80's. Introductions for this band have gotten a little unnecessary over the last few years or so with Shannon moonlighting with and co-writing songs for Hunx and His Punx, Cody's excellent solo LP with King Lollipop and the lesser known but equally impressive plastics work of Ian the drummer. But if you've some how missed them you're in for a treat. The term Young Oldies gets tossed around quite a bit and is kind of fitting. They also nestle in nicely with the resurgent garage scene. Not to be missed live or on record.
     
  SHANNON AND THE CLAMSRuin Christmas from 1-2-3-4-Go!

  SHANNON AND THE CLAMSSleep Talk from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Sleep Talk features twelve songs that Kim Fowley and Lou Christie would have clawed each others eyes out to get a hold of in the early 60's. Shannon can belt out fierce and fun like Wanda Jackson and Etta James going head to head in a competition for the last bottle of hooch in a song like "King of the Sea" and then play that heart-broken-bad-girl-tryin'-to-do-good bit that hasn't been done this well since the Tammys or the Shangri-La's in a song like "Tired of Being Bad". Cody, the bands guitarist and other main song writer/singer comes on like a crooning, hiccuping, lo-fi garage version of the aformentioned Christie. Excercising the economy and aggression of Garage Rock in ways Lou would never have imagined but with a tenderness and vocal register you know he'd appreciate. Ian, the band's drummer, in addition to his skill at his own instrument provides additional back ups that would make Ennio Morricone and a tribe of head hunters equally as proud. Together The Clams provide a secret ingredient that binds together doo-wop, early rock and R&B, girl group classics, 60's garage/psych, surf and glints of punk in a way that's hard to get across in words. You have to listen to it. You have to see it when it comes to your town. You have to be there and feel that moment when you're compelled to turn to the stranger next to you and slow dance together to a song like "Done With You" and then immediately shake every part you got that shakes to "The Cult Song". Call it what you want; Young Oldies, Garage Rock, Surf, Doo Wop, Punk, whatever, just call it on Friday night.
     
  SNUGGLEZero Real Hearts from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Samiam, Crimpshrine and Rancid. Remember that time you couldn't go wrong with any of those? It's been awhile. Snuggle sounds a bit like if you took the first few records of all of those bands, artfully smashed them to pieces and even more artfully reassembled them in to one giant record and updated it so it wasn't a boring throwback or some inept aping. Snuggle embody what I love about gritty pop punk and the city they hail from, Seattle. It's got the gloom and the get up and go that comes from the heart and not some calculated manipulation. For fans of Off With Their Heads, Crimpshrine, Samiam, Bent Outta Shape, Rancid. On tour through the month of November in the US!
     
  SNUGGLE / NO HIGH FIVES TO BULLSHIT from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Both bands contribute two songs of gravely heart broken pop punk sing alongs. And not that "everything is so great, let's all go ride bikes and hug" sort of gravely pop punk. But the kind that's bummed out about stuff. The good kind. Not that riding bikes and hugging isn't great. Snuggle is literally the best pop punk band from Seattle probably ever. I can't think of another from the area, past or present, that could rival them. No High 5's are from Denver and aren't afraid to call out all this unnecessary high fiving that's been going on lately! Full color cover art by Henderson who is an artistic genius, former member of Shorebirds and moved to one of the Carolinas for some god awful reason!!! First press limited to 500 copies.

  SYNTHETIC IDApertures from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Widely heralded as one of the best new bands in the SF Bay Area. SYNTHETIC ID play taught, angular, aggressive post punk oft compared to The Wipers, Gang of Four, Wire and Mission of Burma. This record uses tension to level whatever is put in front of it. Use it to flatten your neighbors house. Don't believe us? Check out some of the reviews for their debut 7" "There’s a new best band in San Francisco. I know I say that a lot, but I mean it every time. SYNTHETIC ID play jerky and genuine jams for fans of WIPERS, THE FALL, PERE UBU and OBSERVERS. “Throwaway” is among the greatest songs I’ve heard in years - this three song banger is angular and deliberate, and the guitars are brilliant. Speaking of guitars, they are handled by the most understated and prolific musicians I’ve ever come across, who is also a contributing member of FACE THE RAIL, ECOLI, YADOKAI, and HUNTING PARTY." - Terminal Escape "Synthetic ID sound like Greg Sage, D. Boone, and Colin Newman fabricating the house band for the International Space Station. Or better yet, spending three days in close quarters on an uncharted trek to the Sea of Tranquility. Anxious paranoia dripping from the walls. It's jerky, derailed, and draws heavily from early post-punk, but chugs along at a classic punk tempo, blasting out totally agitated lyrics the whole time. Space madness? Or just a need to escape the surface of this planet, even if it just be through the act of playing two minute punk jams? Either way, it's exciting and different." - Razorcake

8 originals and one Misfits cover that actually doesn't suck. This is way cheap because this band never played a show outside of Portland and I've got a bunch left. If you like hardcore with a hint of brutal rock'n'roll you need to get this. Similar to Suicide File but better than Modern Life is War.
     
  THE HORDEThe Horde from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

One of my favorite styles of hardcore. The rock'n'roll infused style. It's pissed and realizes you don't have to resort to metal to kick an ass or two. Limited to only a few copies. The most under appreciated 1-2-3-4 Go! release in my opinion. It's dirt cheap. If you like bands like Suicide File or maybe The Bronx you'll like this unless you have serious mental problems. My friend Aaron Edge is in this band. He was in Himsa and Harkonen a long time ago. He hates it when I tell people that but since this band never played shows outside of Portland he can suck it.
     
  UNNATURAL HELPERSUnnatural Helpers from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Vinyl release of their first self released album with bonus tracks, following their debut "Cracked Love and Other Drugs" on Hardly Art. Rob Vertigo stared directly in to a photograph of Dean Whitmore for 3 full days and wrote this about what you can expect. Somehow Dean has wrung out of his ADD riddled wet-lobes more catchy tracks than one would think imaginable. Seemingly hundreds since his first foray into 4-track. But catchy don't mean just simple or clean. There's a history of Pacific NW grime, grit and a snarling wry wit caked under his fingernails. Just because his calloused hands bleat out garage perfection doesn't mean something clattery, weird or dark isn't gonna' be around the bend. Angular knee-jerk rock, Fuzz-muffed and Muddled-ga-runge, overcast punkish gloom, heavy stoner chug, Sonics soulful belting, Redd Kross speed and sugar crunched pop. The whole fawking caboodle is on the table. And this carry-on contains HITS. Someday hopefully this eclectic Helpers catalog will be remembered and/or regarded as important as the works of elder-punks Rob Vasquez (who?! Go learn something kids...it's HISTORY), Kurt Bloch or even Fred Cole. If we know what's best. This is the type of music-stuff that rings loudly in HATE's flannel-wrapped Buddy Bradley's brain, if that old dweeb even listens to R&R anymore.

  VANNA INGETAllvar from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Another in the long line of great Swedish punk bands coming out now! Melodic, urgent and at times meloncholic. Singer Karolina has a intense, crystal clear voice that coupled with the rest of the band recall's elements of early California punk like the Avengers and more modern counterparts like Vicious, Masshysteri, Terrible Feelings or the Bombettes. Very limited US pressing of the album in anticipation of the band touring here in 2012. Only a few hundred copies are available in the US. Released in cooperation with P. Trash Records, Punks Only and 1-2-3-4 Go! Records.
     
  WHISKEY SUNDAYMaldecido CD from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Dover makes Frankie Stubbs sound like a velvet throated crooner. It's tough, it's melodic, it's into science fiction and there's a duet with Annie from This Is My Fist on it. What more could you ask for? This record is a little less Naked Raygun-sounding than their debut but still amazing. My favorite band from San Jose.

Available in our NEW STORE!

  WIMPSRepeat from 1-2-3-4-Go!
Available in our NEW STORE!

Limited to 250 copies! Wimps are a Seattle 3-piece that inject jaunty, neurotic punk songs with well-crafted crack-pop sensibilities. The sardonic wits of guitarist Rachel Ratner (Butts) and bassist Matt Nyce (Meth Teeth) lyrically twist otherwise common day-to-day woes into shout-sung call-and-response stabs that champion boredom, laziness, social anxieties, and hangovers, with wiry riffs and subterranean basslines propelled by the punchy, measured rhythms of drummer Dave Ramm (The Intelligence).
