Always liked these rolling threads but the last one (2015) seems to have died. So here goes!

NEW THOUGHTS OF IONESCO: https://corpseflowerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/thoughts-of-ionesco-skar-cymbals

I hope they tour because there's no way I can get to Detroit for their reunion show this weekend. Some friends are opening for them, so anyone in the Detroit area reading this: GO.

Timely as I'm just off to see Lebenden Toten which I'm fucking psyched about and also saw announced today that Siege are playing London in September although I dunno what that's gonna be like, who's even in the band now?

Xetas got the furious edge-of-indie punk sound going, a la Husker Du, Fucked Up and Hot Snakes

The Messthetics: new band w/ Brendan Canty & Joe Lally from Fugazi + Tashi Dorji (who I had never heard of before, sorry Tashi). Instrumental and syncopated, some guitar noodling, pretty good! Not really Fugazi-ish.

Tashi Dorji is beloved in the post Fahey guitar improv weirdo underground, this is an exciting development!

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 27 September 2017 21:23 (one year ago) link

Oh sweet, I wasn't aware. Can definitely hear his talent in that area in these live videos. There doesn't seem to be any studio material out there, would love to hear some.

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 10 January 2018 23:27 (one year ago) link

I want to plug Dazey and the Scouts' Maggot, which is def less hardcore than most stuff discussed here but is a fantastic, funny, and emotional queer rock record I'm angry I learned of too late to nominate for the 77.

I go and see old punk reunions so you don't have to. My public service announcement is that the Crippens who are the current incarnation of Doctor & the Crippens, late 80s UKHC, are definitely worth seeing in 2018

Reissues
Bib - A Band In Hardcore

Colonel Poo, Saturday, 16 February 2019 11:55 (seven months ago) link

I am interested but this music is pretty dilettante-proof - where even to begin? What are the weirdest acts you've listed?

imago, Saturday, 16 February 2019 12:00 (seven months ago) link

hmm tbh a lot of that is pretty straight-up hardcore (one might even use the word generic but I like generic hardcore so...)

I would recommend you listen to the Ex though if you don't already know them. Maybe Hank Wood & The Hammerheads, Constant Mongrel, Suburban Homes, Cool Greenhouses

Cold Meat was one of my favourite singles of the year. That Bib discography compilation was great too

Colonel Poo, Saturday, 16 February 2019 12:17 (seven months ago) link

Constant Mongrel sound good. They sound like Total Control! Oh wait they kind of share members with them and everything haha

iirc nobody gives the slightest shit about punk on ILM in 2019 but I have greatly enjoyed Scrap Brain who have a new album out next week (and they've been covering the Fatal Microbes which I have a huge soft spot for)

Colonel Poo, Sunday, 21 April 2019 00:38 (five months ago) link

I have repped for them before here, for definite. Absolute legends.

I should read this thread more. I loved Circle Thinking but had no idea they released another full-length in 2017, nor that they have broken up. A lot of good stuff on World of Grief too, it seems. Despite the different rhythm section, it hits a lot of the same spots.

saw this and wanted to rep my favorite Philly punk band at the moment, Soul Glo, who follow in the long philly tradition of all-black punk bands that fucking *shred*

pleasure.

should mention that i have a back patch of theirs that reads "HANDS ACROSS AMERICA" that's just a flag made out of black power fists. pretty dope.

is there no 2019 thread?

where i can post about Civic and have everyone ignore it?

With an Extreme Burning (aka The Tormentor) (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Wednesday, 28 August 2019 22:40 (three weeks ago) link

I didn't ignore it! I just listened to the Those Who No EP and liked it very much. A decent lil cover of Needle in the Camel's Eye on there too, fully appropriate. Thanks!

del griffith, Thursday, 29 August 2019 01:12 (three weeks ago) link

o cool! i've been listening to that and the New Vietnam EP and 7" fairly relentlessly. Australia really has a thing going.

With an Extreme Burning (aka The Tormentor) (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 29 August 2019 01:41 (three weeks ago) link

that's funny cause I started listening to New Vietnam and couldn't get more than two tracks in because it was too "balls out" garagey/guitar soloy, then saw what appeared to be a different Civic on spotify, and liked Those Who No because it seemed poppier. almost can't believe they're the same band!

I think it was this thread's 2009 incarnation that got me into Eddy Current Suppression Ring for a while. good to know Melbourne's still at it!

del griffith, Thursday, 29 August 2019 01:54 (three weeks ago) link

i'm always interested in stuff that gets posted here fwiw

billstevejim, Thursday, 29 August 2019 17:38 (three weeks ago) link

also from back in january: https://bbbrecords.bandcamp.com/album/promo-2019

billstevejim, Thursday, 29 August 2019 17:51 (three weeks ago) link

is there no 2019 thread?

there was no 2018 thread either. tbh punk gig audiences have been steadily dwindling in London/Brighton over the past few years so not particularly surprising

not that I can complain because I often haven't bothered to post on here either.

of Bill's list I'm only aware of Fury who I don't like much and Uranium Club, who've been around a while but never quite gelled for me until that new album which I do like

I went to a hardcore all-dayer this month which was fun, had mostly newish bands playing various types of hardcore - Never, Gutter Knife, the Flex, Big Cheese, Mere Mortal, Frame of Mind

some punky stuff from 2019 I've been enjoying:

Vaaska - Inocentes Condenados 7" (absolute ripper)
Axe Rash - Axe Rash
Bad Breeding - Exiled
Briefs - Platinum Rats
Chubby & The Gang - All Along The Uxbridge Road 7"
Current Affairs - Buckle Up 7"
Diat - Positive Disintegration
the Freeze - Calling All Creatures
Game - No One Wins
Institute - Adjusting The Locks
Kaleidoscope - After The Futures
Mock Execution - Reality Attack 7"
Scab Eater - Ultra Vires
Asid - Pathetic Flesh
Disguise - Bas Fada 7"
Haram - Where Were You On 9/11 7"
Headsplitters - Headsplitters
Hygiene - Private Sector
Idiota Civilizzato - Civilta Idiota 7"
Khiis - Bezoar
Kriegshog - Paint It Black 7"
Scrap Brain - A Journey Into Madness
State Funeral - Built For Destruction 7"
Wild Billy Childish & CTMF - Last Punk Standing

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 29 August 2019 20:24 (three weeks ago) link

I like seeing and hearing all this new stuff listed, and I love talking about punk but am sadly aging out of going to too many shows because of work and life in general.

Can we keep talking here until 2020 and start a new one then? Or just make an overall rolling thread?

I want to change my display name (dan m), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 15:00 (two weeks ago) link

That Fury album is great, esp this track

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UovgnFGiFzA

I want to change my display name (dan m), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 18:35 (two weeks ago) link

listened to a bit of New Vietnam by Civic this lunchtime. into this, thanks for the rec

I've only heard the first album by Fury and that was pretty generic iirc. maybe I should give this new one a go...

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 4 September 2019 15:47 (two weeks ago) link

listened to the rest of the Civic EP and this is right up my street. never seen them mentioned before outside this thread. the system works!

Colonel Poo, Saturday, 7 September 2019 00:26 (two weeks ago) link

I think it's previously released material, but I'm really digging this R.M.F.C. compilation:
