BENT CROSS

s/t 7-Inch Barfight

BENT CROSS. Risen from the ashes of bla...bla and features ex- and current members of this and that. This 7" contains 6 blazing tracks of unadulterated hardcore-punk. Incredible lyrics belted out over furious yet catchy, hook-laden songs really put this over the top. This inconspicuous little smasher has it all - hooks, speed, attitude, piss, vinegar...definintely will not disappoint. What else is worth writing about? The guitarist owns a famous binge drinking etablissement in St.Pauli and the drummer once played for german Schlager heroes Die Flippers. Hey, some of these rumors might even be true. BENT CROSS are exclusively endorsed by drunk poetry, cheap guitars, badly played solos, and general misantrophy. Plain black vinyl includes a digital download card.

BETWEEN EARTH & SKY

Of Roots And Wings LP Refuse

BETWEEN EARTH & SKY: a collection of five individuals bound together by a love for the writings of Ernest Becker and Samuel Beckett and endless amounts of vegan food have finally after nine long years managed to pull their personal lives together long enough to synthesize their perspectives on tragic experiences into a collection of songs infused with anguish and hope. Profoundly inspired by the inevitability of suffering, and the need to collect ourselves psychologically if we hope to ever be of any help to a world that so desperately calling for attention, action, and care, the members of BETWEEN EARTH & SKY delve deeply into irony by attempting to use powerful, yet melodic hardcore songs with insightful lyrics in a vain attempt to unravel their anxiety about the inevitability of their demise. Featuring a line up of experienced members (Greg Bennick, Alexei Rodriguez, and EJ Bastien of TRIAL and CATHARSIS; Sean Lande of STRAIN and BY A THREAD; and Happy Kreter of GOB and BURDEN).

BEWARE THE IDOLS

s/t 7" Indecision

In the summer of 2007, singer Rus Martin (Eyelid, Hotwire, Fake Figures), had the idea of making a concept EP and demoed five songs on an acoustic guitar of early '80s hardcore punk-influenced songs, a sound that harkens back to the days when he was growing up skating, going to shows and causing trouble. He had put a cheap distortion effect on the tunes and sent them to bass player and long-time friend, Erik Andrews to get some feedback. Without a drummer, or guitar player, they entered the studio with Joe Cardamone at Valley Recording Company and recorded the "Beware The Idols" EP. On colored vinyl.

BEYOND

Dew It! / Live Crucial Chaos WNYU LP Revelation

Beyond, though short lived in the NYHC scene (1988-1989), made an impact with their personal brand of Long Island metal-tinged hardcore with intricate riffage. The "Dew It!" demo was supposed to be recorded for Schism but the label folded before it got off the ground. They sold their demos through Some Records on the Lower East Side until the store closed and the rest were sold through mailorder. Originally recorded on a 1" tape and mixed on cassette, "Dew It!" has been remixed to give it the sound that was previously intended. Backed with the demo is Beyond's live set on WYNU's legendary punk and hardcore radio show, "Crucial Chaos," which was started in the late '80s and still continues to this day, nearly 25 years later. Members of Beyond have gone on to bands like Quicksand, Bold, Inside Out, Burn, Shelter, 108 and more. Revelation Records has combined these two gems on vinyl and paired it with a 20-page, 12" x 12" booklet. LP includes digital download of this record. On colored vinyl.

BIG CHEESE

Punishment Park LP Quality Control

A well-oiled machine, Big Cheese present to you their trailblazing debut full-length, "Punishment Park," which nods to sounds from the demo and 7" but pushes the boat out even further, incorporating thrashier riffs and hard-rock licks akin to Motorhead. You can feel the power as soon as opener "Pennine Scrubs" hits, taking you on a journey through unpredictable riff after atomic bomb-inducing breakdown. There is no room to breathe here.

BIG CHEESE

Aggravated Mopery 7" Quality Control

Man, talk about deja vu all over again: I just saw Outburst last week and it was amazing to witness people go apeshit for them, some literally not born yet when I caught them last in 1989. This vibe continues upon listening to Big Cheese’s debut 7” on Quality Control HQ. The record is basically a love letter to the NYHC sound during the late 1980s: I hear a Killing Time/Leeway mosh part here, an Altercation/Warzone divebomb there, of course the aforementioned greats in Outburst, and how the hell does a northern UK lad sing a la Jeff Perlin from Breakdown?! These are all good points in my book as sometimes the implementation of retro styles can be a colorless, slavish reproduction of the past with no heart at it’s core. This is not the case here as the obvious affection for a particular time and place manifests itself in well executed grooves that both reflect and transcend their influences. Kudos to old friend Don Fury for a nice, crisp production and to Big Cheese for getting it right and flying the flag for an atavistic ethos that’s near and dear to my heart.” 
Freddy Alva, Wardance Records, New York and Author of Urban Styles: Graffiti in New York Hardcore.

Big Cheese fly the flag for the New Wave of British Hardcore and hail from various parts of ‘The North’ of the UK. Members are also currently in bands such as Higher Power, Blind Authority and Rapture, and have previously played in Violent Reaction and Shrapnel.

Dont Forget To Tell The World LP Painkiller

After the release of a demo tape and the European-only "Aggravated Mopery" EP, Big Cheese (featuring members of Violent Reaction) overwhelmingly established themselves as one of the best NYHC-style bands around (despite being based in UK), and made their claim as the live band to beat on stages across Europe. With a US tour imminent and new material in the works, Painkiller presents a 12" of all previously released material by Big Cheese (the aforementioned 7" and demo tape) plus one new song, all newly mastered and cut to a 45 RPM 12" to be played at maximum volume.

Listen to this loud, and with friends.
