Out now on Terroten with US distribution by Havoc is the Ulster 95/96 7". We have these for mailorder and wholesale. Great raw and gritty Brazillian hardcore punk in the early 80's tradition. Coming soon from Terroten will be the Warcupid 7" and Havoc will be doing distro for that one as well.
Out now on Havoc/Punk Records The Vile Provocation 12” Two fingers in the air punk rock from members of Discharge, Varukers, Broken Bones, Disorder..
Local band Brain Tumors are on tour. I gave them a box of records to sell on the road. I'm guessing they have the new Fashionable Idiots titles to sell as well.

Updated the webstore today. Highlight is of course the new 7" from Sweden's Institution. This one will go fast, expensive, but worth it. Also some restocks and new stuff from Antisociety records and some cheap CDs. Plus the double LP re issue of Doom "world of shit" Lp.
The Vile "Provocation" 12" will finally arrive this week.
I will be at Chaos in Tejas this year, but not doing distro at any of the gigs. I might set up a small table at the record swap on saturday. I will post more details as I sort it out.
Just embarked on a big campaign to restock the webstore, lots of new releases and restocks are starting to arrive.
The latest round of Svart re issues is here, Sensuuri ( a personal favorite of mine) Vandaalit, Kohu 63, Ypo Viis and Loose Prick LP. Plus I sourced some unplayed stock copies of Crust Records titles from the 90's by Vorhees, Scum Noise and Stack.
Just added a few items to the webstore today, a new LP by Finnish band Raygun, which captures that classic raw Finnish hardcore punk sound. Also the Pissheads 7", which is pretty awesome, and the Symbol Six "Posh Boy Sessions" Lp. Also the Desperat "Borjan Pa Slutet" 7" is back in stock and now there are some on Blue Vinyl for mail order.
Postage rates have gone up. The US rates increased only incrementally, but the overseas rates have gone way up. Our webstore has automatically updated with the new prices. As far as I can tell from looking at the new rates, the increases are steepest for the smallest parcels. That is to say the cost of shipping one 7" to Europe has just about doubled, wheras shipping 10 Lps to Europe has only gone up about 10 or 20%. Either way the new rates are brutal and are the last thing this struggling business needed right now.
Here's the first update of the new year. I've just added some great new releases, the Desperat/Deathraid split LP, Rattus "Ratcage" Lp re issue and Disorder "Under the Scalpel Blade" Lp re issue. A lot of people are asking about the Institution LP, we sold out in a matter of hours, but more copies are on the way. If you haven't heard about this LP, it's a new Swedish band with members of Meanwhile, Totalitar and Heratys and it's most excellent.
Here's the first update to the new webstore, check the new and updated items section. Mostly imports from the Nordic lands this time around. Kromosom has announced US tour dates and will be playing Chaos In Tejas. We are still experiencing some bugs with our new webstore and some customers are not getting confirmation orders when they create accounts or place orders. We are getting the orders, just that it seems our outgoing confirmation emails aren't getting through, we are working on this and hope to solve it soon.
