(2/10/13) A very slow start to 2013 as evidenced by the lack of new shit below. Weve been saving our pennies for our first ever Rapid Pulse 10:The Lovesores-Bubblegum Riot ep! Scott and Jeff from the Humpers recreate their glory days with these 6 new songs assured to knock you on your ass! They may not be trying to sound like The Humpers, but they sure do and were all better for it. 100 copies are in a cellophane type sleeve and will go fast. You've been warned! We dont have a 10 section, so its listed below amidst the LPs. I cant even begin to tell you how great this is!
(1/20/13) New Catholic Discipline lp in stock now!
(12/23/12) Two Killer lps this time out! The debut from former Busy Signal Ana Lucia and the never before on vinyl White Trainers Community lp (get it now cause its gonna disappear very quickly!
We finally joined Facebook. Stop by and like it so the numbers not quite so embarrassing. It will be easier to update that page as soon as new shit arrives and post record covers etc. Does anyone care about Twitter? If you do, you can follow at @umedjim and maybe I'll start posting new arrivals and whatever other crap. If theres not much interest, I wont bother...
Remember, new records are added weekly, as we get them, not in a single update like the old days...
NEW SHIT! : seven inches

NEW SHIT! : Other
13.00 Ana Lucia - LP
S/T (Ramo) Killer Punk Rock (melodic catchy Dangerhouse style) from the former lead singer of the great Busy Signals. Produced by Travis Ramin and recorded by Paul Roessler at Geza Xs studio.

A Must!
12.00 Bags - LP

11.50 Curtains! - LP
Deep In Night City (Dead Beat) Maybe its because I rarely listen to this kinda stuff that it sounds so cool or maybe its just a great record. From Chicago, they create some serious Birthday Party, Chrome, Bauhaus type sounds. Colored vinyl
12.50 Fadeaways - LP
Raw, Wild & Wretched! (Dead Beat) From Tokyo, The Fadeaways blast out 10 tracks of snotty garage punk! Supercharger and the Mummies meet the Registrators and Teengenerate, but not lofi.
11.50 Gestapo Khazi - LP

9.00 Lovesores - LP
Bubblegum Riot ep (Rapid Pulse/No Front Teeth) 10. When The Humpers broke up, not a lot of bands came along to challenge their awesomeness. A difficult task for sure. As it turns out, monumental! Scott Deluxe Drake and Jeff Fieldhouse, the Mick and Keith of the Humpers, took matters into their own hands and have created a more than worthy successor: The Lovesores! They come blasting out of Portland, Oregon with this 6-song 10. Punk RocknRoll, Jack! Don't let the bubblegum in the title fool you, this is a complete Sonic Assault!!!

Guitars, Bass & Drums (Rave On) BACK IN STOCK! The Reducers have been around since 1978-same 4 guys, same 3 chords! Their latest release is now out on vinyl and includes a non-cd/non 7 track. 12 great tracks including covers of The Heard and Firestarter.
18.00 Riots - LP
Time For Truth! (Time For Action) Moscows Riots are back with their debut full-length and it does not disappoint! Perhaps not as rockin as the singles, its still packed with excellent songs that bring to mind The Jam, Mod-Revival, and a little bit of the ol Maximum R&B
12.00 Stitches - LP
Do The Jetset (Vinyl Dog) 6 Stitches classics played on childrens instuments with electronic drums. Maybe it doesnt sound like much, but the results are Phenomenal! For fans of the Stitches, Screamers, Tubeway Army...
18.00 V/A Ruling The World From The Backseat - LP
