So first off the first Poison Idea reissue will be "War All The Time". The photos and liner notes for the Early Years compilation is taking longer than expected but expect a really nice release filled with rare photos. Before that release is out we have a slew of Eps coming out. The last release for Tipper's Gore, a split with Makabert Fynd from Sweden is now out with a limited amount on blue vinyl. Also a new Cat Party ep "Heartache Over Headache" will be out within the next week or two with three new songs from these Orange County post punks. Also on the horizon we have the debut ep from Knives featuring ex members of Tipper's Gore and Neon Maniacs. Stay tuned in. Stay stoked.

These Ventura/Oxnard skate punks are back in your face with their sophomore release "Pure Hate". This is great skate thrash that doesn't get bland due to their execution of varying tempos and smooth transitions that keep you on your toes. With the subject matter still being light and humorous this is a record that will get you pissed and make you laugh all at once. Take their Nardcore roots and mix that in with great skate thrash like ETA with the humor of Tesco Vee and you got yourself some Pure Hate. Split release with World Won't Listen Records.
These fine young gentlemen burst out of the lovely region known as the South in the sweltering state of Tennessee. Featuring members of Life Trap, this band plays a brand of catchy yet snotty punk rock thats hard to compare to any one band. Think early so cal punk rock, equal parts SST, Posh Boy and Frontier but with more of an edge with a nod to Texas bands like Really Red and The Dicks. Scorching instruments and refreshing unique vocals; catchy tunes with an attitude. This record includes the title track "Blackhole" and the three tracks from their first demo tape.
