Teenage Disco Bloodbath
- 12 INCHES OF 12"
skate thrash titans Bones Brigade, and Misfits-worshiping punks Shanghai
Valentine broke up, something was already brewing in the steamy waters
of Boston Harbor. Two members from each band have come together to form
Coctopus, a troup that sonically embodies two decades worth of rock
history. Ripping guitar solos, epic harmonies, wah wah-ed bass lines,
and raging drum-fills bubble to the surface on Coctopus’ debut
record. Fans of Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, and
Jimmy Hendrix should all take note. The musical virtuosity this band
displays is only rivaled by the pure balls-out rock they create.
new record, entitled “12 Inches of…” is a one sided
LP with an etching on the B side.
TDB 014: HATS
AND GLASSES - 10"
bit of a departure, TDB Record’s newest act Hats and Glasses play
a brand of jangly indie rock that is as eclectic as it is nostalgic.
Recalling the harmonies of The Beatles and the raw stomp of The Ramones,
all three members of the band pull their weight sharing lead vocal duties.
Add to the mix foot tapping drum patterns, poppy guitar jabs, off-kilter
keyboard runs, distorted bass and these Bostonians end up with music
that is refreshingly memorable and dancey.
Hats and Glasses [are] a threesome for whom the description “unique”
is more than just a lazy adjective. ...Still, their greatest strength
[is] the spectacle that is Elliott Chaffee. ...A flawless vocalist,
keyboardist and drummer, he exhausted the potential of all three roles
— simultaneously. Hats and Glasses is, of course, more than a
carnival act. It’s a serious band with a heart for exploration.
It not only flirts with cacophony, it embraces it.” – Performer
This record comes on thick clear vinyl housed inside a 4 color hand
silk screened cover.
TDB 013: PERTH
EXPRESS - Discography CD $10
in the path of bands like His Hero is Gone, Tragedy, Mastodon, and Baroness,
Perth Express step the genre of down-tuned hardcore driven metal up
to a new level of intensity and songwriting. This discography CD features
the German band’s 12”, 10”, 7” and demo, all
of which were previously unreleased in the States. The 23-track monster
of a record is housed in a black recycled cardboard case with a hand
silk-screened gold ink interior and folded insert. Without any exaggeration
I can say this is without a doubt one of the most powerful and memorable
metal/hardcore records released in the last decade.

Many A Summer Dies The Swan
TDB 012: RAMMING
SPEED - "Full Speed Ahead" 7" $5
Ramming Speed play an amalgam of 80's Anthrax-style thrash metal, grind,
and crusty hardcore. These party animals will wolf a pizza, down a 30
rack, and still shred some of the sickest solos this side of San Fransisco
Bay. This is the bands debut 7” and the line up contains 4/5ths
of Despotic Robot and Jonah from Backstabbers Inc/TDB.

011: DIE YOUNG (TX)- "Graven Images" 12" $11
Take the enraged socio-political
perspective of TRIAL, the bloodthirsty sonic assault of and INTEGRITY,
and top it off with the suicidal determination of BLACK FLAG. The end
result is Texas's hardest working hardcore band. DIE
YOUNG (TX) have made it a point to not only tour the US constantly,
but also touch the farther corners of the world. The band has packed
DIY shows all across North America (Canada and Alaska included), as
well as Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Costa
Rica and Puerto Rico. The new record honestly sounds something like
a fire-breathing Brian Catharsis fronting Integrity, which rules.

010: NO IDOLS- "Low (Swing the Pyramid Hands)" 12"
cross roads of Botch, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Cursed, No Idols
are playing dice and melting faces with an absolutely monstrous dose
of creative and original sounding hardcore. These Syracuse bruisers
feature Ryan Canavan (ex-The Funeral) on vocals and have been stomping
around the US since 04, touring alongside the likes of Lords, Ruiner,
and Burial Year.

009: FRUIT SALAD - "Blood Power" 7" $4
are everything that is awesome about raw DIY hardcore punk. One listen
to their upcoming record and you wont stop thinking about summer time
basement shows, cold 40’s of Old English and skateboarding. Fans
of Charles Bronson and Blood for Blood should hang out more often, and
when they do, this should be the sound track.

Fit For Nothing
008: TIDES - "From Silence" CD EP $8
here, like on Resurface, display a tempered determination not uncommon
to the more pensive tendencies of Isis or Pelican and manage to unfurl
moments that bring recent Boris material, along with some Mogwai and
even Anodyne, to mindcomparisons that highlight how interpretive From
Silence can be. The evocative artwork (down to Tides beautifully non-traditional
logo) packages appropriately.
this EP might be relegated to chill time in the average heads rotation,
heres to hoping it lands within earshot of those who still reserve all
space for deft artistic sensibilities and great fucking songwriting."

007: DRAW BLOOD - "Rowdyism" 7" $4
In an effort to breathe fresh air into a scene seemingly content with
its own zombification, Draw Blood are offering more than regurgitated
clichés from the notebooks of the lowest common denominator;
nor are they content selling the same old stories of backstabbing friends
and broken relationships. This band is unafraid to tackle larger issues
that many are hesitant to take a stand on, delivering an infectiously
anthemic, but pointed social commentary over rhythms that are classically
pressed, 400 on red, 300 on yellow. 15
or 20 test presses.

"... the playing is tight, the writing is strong, and the recording

forward to hearing more from these two. For a young band they're quite
talented..." Aversion online.com
"We've been anxiously awaiting some music from the Hound for a
while. We sent our boy Will Spitz to scope them out first, as a precaution.
