UNDERGROUND MEDICINE

June 2018


Rare that I pick up anything new these days, but I couln't resist The Suck!

I just dropped the prices on a bunch more stuff-the end is nigh... Now up to 700 titles on Discogs.

The 101ers 7" is listed twice, but it's the same record. If you click on the band name on the first one it's a wikipedia page, on the second it's a youtube link... Make sure to scroll all they way to the bottom of the page so you don't miss the mighty Yard Work!

The new Crazy Squeeze lp is finally available! Grab one and some other newish lps below. The Rapid Pulse version of the Smogtown single is sold out/out of print... Order at umedpunk@aol.com

Happy 25th Anniversary To Us! -that’s right, 2017 was 25 years...

NEW SHIT! : seven inches

6.00 Suck
S/T ep (Route 13 Recordings) An Independent Street Rock Record or so says the sleeve. What you have here is 4 tracks of killer Punk RnR from guys who have obviously been around the block a few times. Super-catchy and gritty. White vinyl 300 copies.

NEW SHIT! : Other

12.50 Bad Mojos - LP
Passout City (No Front Teeth) England 10" 11-tracks of Swiss punk from the Spits/Nazi's From Mars school.

12.00 Black Mambas - LP
Moderation (Disconnected) Killer SoCal PunknRoll! Catchy as all hell. Their 2nd lp produced by Johnny Witmer. Colored vinyl.

5.00 Botox Rats - LP
Modern Ceasers (Meaty Beaty) Straight up ‘77 style punk killers from England. The Botox Rats feature one of the snottiest, bile spitting singers ever. Pre-The Gaggers! Colored vinyl + a digital download, Yeah!

12.50 Cat Party - LP
Rest In Post (Hostage) The greatest post-punk band in the history of the O.C. underground! That's according to Rick Hostage and he oughta know. 7" tracks, rarities, etc. From the Joy Division/Bauhaus school

12.00 Crazy Squeeze - LP
Savior Of The Streets (Disconnected) The second lp from these guys and they pulled off a major rarity by putting an lp out that's so great it's better than their first! Pub Rock, Glam Rock, Street Rock, Punk Rock, Pop Rock and anything in between that rocks. It was a long wait for this one and it's definitely worth it!

12.50 Disco Lepers - LP
Sophisticated Shame (Dead Beat) By now you know what you’re with these guys-Raw Punk madness with the snottiest vocal ever. Stellar!

12.50 Dr. Boogie - LP
Gotta Get Back To... New York City (Dead Beat) Their instant classic debut from 2015.

3.00 Fist City - LP
Hunting You (Dead Beat) Female fronted post-punk debut from California. Produced by Paul from the Myelin Sheaths.

12.50 JJ & The Real Jerks - LP
Back To The Botom (Dead Beat) Raw sleazy RocknRoll ala New York Dolls, Heartbreakers, Humpers... They've been around awhile, but this 2017 lp is their first full-length.

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!!!

3.00 Manic Attracts - LP
Eyes Wide Shut (Dead Beat) A Vancouver band with members of Dead Ghost and others, crank out some melodic and catchy songs and bash the shit out of them!

5.00 Ratbag - LP
Freeballin (No Front Teeth) England This record is several years old. I imagine some people will love while others completely hate it. Here's how the band describes themselves, I certainly couldn't have come up with anything better: RatBag are possibly the finest accordion driven ska folk punk band ever to have dressed as characters from Alice In Wonderland and cycled to Bognor. See them before they are pulped and made into cheap newspapers.

24.00 Ric Gordon - LP
Just Can't Get Enough (Next Wave) Newly rediscovered punky Powerpop classic! Original sealed copies in perfect condition. 6-song 12” from 1979 (though the sleeve says 1980) Kansas City , MO. Check out all 6 songs here.

12.50 Shark Toys - LP
S/T (Dead Beat) From L.A. and they seem to get a post-punk tag put on them, most likely because they are slightly reminiscent of early Gang Of Four. Whatever, it's great stuff.

18.00 Stitches - LP
Do The Jetset (Vinyl Dog) Clear vinyl version-200 copies. 6 Stitches classics played on children’s instuments with electronic drums. Maybe it doesn’t sound like much, but the results are Phenomenal! For fans of the Stitches, Screamers, Tubeway Army...

12.00 Telephone Lovers - LP
S/T (Disconnected) 2017's breakout stars and it's easy to see why. 12 songs punky Power Pop classics owing more to The Nerves and Eddie and The Hotrods than say, Exploding Hearts. A record I foresee still listening to in 10 or 20 years.

12.50 Tomy & The Cougars - LP
Ambush (Dead Beat) Debut lp from these high-energy Punk/Powerpop kids from France.

11.50 Yard Work - LP
Earn The Rock (Rock Tumbler) From Austin, TX with members from The Motards, Ritchie Whites, Chumps... Yes, their songs are mostly about Lawnmowers, Wrenches, Garden Hoses, you know-Yard Work. Pounding bass fueled Garage. At times the raw stripped-down sound reminds me of MOTO. Very cool!
