Check out the new Rapid Pulse releases and a few old ones Here. The Crazy Squeeze white vinyl is sold out...
(8/28/13) Available Now! Three new Rapid Pulse titles: The Crazy Squeeze, The Junk, and a split from The Stitches and The Gaggers. Greg Lonesome from the Rock & Roll Manifesto says this is the best Stitches track since 8x12. Who am I to argue? The Gaggers back it up with what is pretty much their theme song. The JunKs third single is a complete Monster! Its their first release with new singer Riky Barnes, formally of The Pushers. This brings us to latest from The Crazy Squeeze. One track is from their recent lp and the flip is an amazing cover of The Boys classic Terminal Love! Get all three regular versions at the bargain price of $18 ppd in the U.S. Buy them individually and pay through the nose!
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
5.00 Crazy Squeeze
Younger Girl/Terminal Love (Rapid Pulse/No Front Teeth) The long promised 2nd single from the Crazy Squeeze is finally available! The A-side is from their self-titled album and the B-side is a non-lp cover of The Boys classic Terminal Love featuring none other than The Boys guitarist Honest John Plain! Classroom cartoon sleeve is the black vinyl. Check it out on the Rapid Pulse Page
Formaldehyde ep (Hovercraft) 4 new songs on yellow vinyl. 4 killer new songs that is. As good, if not better than their previous releases. Check out this review while you dig the sounds
30.07.1992 (Self-Released) Great old Finnish punk from 1992 that I would have guessed was recorded 10 or more years earlier. A very KBD pre-hardcore sound-click on the band name for a track. All liner notes /lyrics are in Finnish. Thick vinyl and thick sleeve. I'm pretty sure its all ready out of print.
6.00 Stitches / Gaggers
Split (Rapid Pulse) What we have here is Without You, a completely unreleased track from The Stitches that is so good it will have you asking How is it possible that this was left in the can? On the flip is one of the best newer bands around, Londons Gaggers with what is pretty much their theme song-Gag On This. Yellow Cowgirl sleeve is black vinyl. Check it out on the Rapid Pulse Page
NEW SHIT! : Other

11.00 Catholic Discipline - LP
Underground Babylon (Artifix) Short lived L.A. alll-star band led by Slash Magazine's Claude Kickboy Face Bessy. They never made it to the studio, so all thats left is live recordings. These are surprisingly good. Pink vinyl.
10.50 Crazy Squeeze - LP
S/T (Vinyl Dog) It's finally out, the debut lp from The Crazy Squeeze! 12 great tracks that span tough Pub-Rock to near powerpop with punk and glam in between. All with an underlying love of The Boys.
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
S/T (Dead Beat) Mid-tempo rockers from Long Beach, CA with some dark twang. Most reviews I see mention the Gun Club and its hard to deny that, though theyre certainly not copyists. 6-songs 45 rpms.
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!!!

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
