Modernettes “View From The Bottom” arrived in 1982 and we’re celebrating that fact on Limited Edition red vinyl! The band’s sophomore E.P. saw anchors Buck Cherry and Mary Jo Kopechne, joined by guitarist Randy Valentino and drummer Ian Noble. Dryer in production than their Bob Rock helmed debut “Teen City,” “View From The Bottom” has all the power-pop songwriting smarts that Modernettes fans expect.
From the gratifying burst of “I Can Only Give You Everything” to Mary Jo’s haunting rendition of the Velvet’s “Femme Fatale” View From The Bottom is a 5 song outing that’s nothing but quality. We’re freshening up the audio like we do around here and an anniversary insert will be included in the package. Words from John (Buck Cherry) Armstrong himself will be juxtaposed with a take on the 18” x 23” black and white poster that was included in the original release. Find out more on the band’s Artist and Store pages… Pre-Orders are now on for this expected November release here.
But WAIT!!!! We’re not done yet! Hardcore skate-punk milestone “Born Too Soon” from the legendary S C.U.M. is also set for re-issue. Minted a classic upon release in1985, “Born Too Soon” captured the local Montreal legends in a huge production that foreshadowed the Bad Brains “I, Against I.”
Fans of Black Flag, D.O.A. and yes… Bad Brains will salivate at the opening salvo of the imperialist take down “Home Away From Home” and the brutal truth of “American Mould.” Skaters will want to shred their neighbor’s coping once the opening chords of “Pool Hunt” hit, and the spiritually oppressed will find peace in “Double Cross and “No Hope Religion.” It’s mid-‘80s hardcore at it’s very best. Out of print for decades the L.P. package will see a revised insert and clear pink vinyl as well as a download code that will include never before released demos from the band’s very first recording sessions!
The band and producer have been working feverishly to create completely revamped and remastered audio for this production and we are loving the extra edge and dirt they are grinding out of it. This will be a completely re-imagined release that exceeds the original. Pre-sales have begun for a projected October release date. Order here now!
After some trials and tribulations we finally have gorgeous black vinyl slabs to drop into Dils "Live" jackets! An issue with the initial pressing forced us to re-press this product. We have taken receipt of the replacement pressing, proofed it and deemed it "fit to ship."
We want to thank all of our customers who waited patiently while we got this taken care of. Order with confidence and enjoy the expanded and improved 24 song collection.
We've gone down the west-coast punk rock rabbit hole once again and have returned with a long out of print gem, the Dils "Live!" The LP last saw the light of day in 1987 when originally released by Triple X Records. We've acquired the original analog master tapes of the record and have pressed a limited run of 500 pieces. The LP features Dils classics like "Class War," I Hate the Rich" and "Sound of the Rain."
But there's more great news… in order to put this release over the top we're including a Compact Disc in the package that features the never before released "Dils Live At Mabuhay Gardens". The set was captured on March 20, 1978 when the band appeared at the San Francisco venue on the New Wave Against Black Lung Benefit alongside Avengers and the Nuns. The package includes completely revamped artwork including a printed insert with photos and words from days gone by as well as a download code for the entire audio package.
We are also offering a Kinman Bundle with this release. You can obtain "This American Blues" the final collaboration between Chip and Tony Kinman on 12" clear blue vinyl along with Dils "Live" for a tasty discount. Be sure to check it out in the webstore when you order here.
That’s right, we've got a brand new exclusive for the holidays kids! Germs 2 x LP (MIA) The Complete Anthology on blue vinyl splattered with black and it’s available to order here right now!
This unique design will never be repeated and is limited to 1000 copies pressed. Once they're gone they're all gone. Completely re-mastered from the original master recordings, CultMTL raves "all of the Germs recorded output is stretched out over two LPs and sounds completely gorgeous."
You can play Punk-Santa this year because this limited pressing won't be in retail stores over the holidays, the only place you can purchase it is here at our webstore!
