Time for a new update. Lots of goodies, limited quantities as usual...
Let's start with records with birds on the cover. Birdcovers - a new genre? Anyway, two really good albums...
Bird (and a goat) #1
FLOWERS MUST DIE - s/t 12" (Rev/Vega 2010) 110:-
Malmös own Hawkwind? Great spaced-out psych! If you dig stuff like early Hawkwind, this is the record for you! Art//Arse? like it!!!
BLACK MAMBA BEAT - s/t lp (Jeetkune 2010) 100:-
New South-african/British band, part of the British so-called Shabeen Scene, and consists of one ex(?)-Black Time member. Sounds like a cross between Black Time, Minutemen and maybe Cramps British punkrockstyle? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
No more birds, some more British Shabeen instead;
HYGIENE - Public sector lp (La Vida Es Un Mus 2011) 100:-
After a couple of nice 7-inches here's Hygienes debut album. Better than ever? Really British sounding punk/post-punk for everyone who like Bingomaster-era The Fall. B-U-Y.
SHITTY LIMITS - Beware the limits lp (La Vida Es Un Mus 2009) 100:-
Shitty Limits debut long-player. If you've heard their 7-inches you know the deal. For people who like music.
Some other stuff. Since its in the list, we at Art//Arse like it. Buy or die.
HOME BLITZ - Perpetual night 7" (Almost Ready) 45:-
Latest offering from Home Blitz, sounds like if Modern Lovers had continued to be as great as on their 1976 album. Might be Home Blitz strongest release ever?
SKULL DEFEKTS - Gospel of the skull 7" (Psychic Malmö 2011) 50:-
Great release from Psychic Malmö. Traditional Skull Defekts sound, but the vocals from Daniel Higgs (ex-Lungfish) makes it sound a bit like Cortex and we all like Cortex, right?
APACHE - Bloody knuckles 7" (Savage) 45:-
Holy shit! Art//Arse? was expecting some glam/punk/junk, but instead this is great punkrock with a slice of NWOBHM-sound. This update's surprise!
ZEROS - Main street brat 7" (Last Laugh 2010) 55:-
Restock of this record with two tracks recorded in the late 70's. Deserves to be up there with their mandatory Don't push me around and Wild Weekend 7-inches.
NORMALS - Almost ready 7" (Last Laugh 2010) 55:-
Yet another great reissue from Last Laugh Records. This label just gets better and better - where will it end??? Superb mix of early punkrock and powerpop!
