Aerosols LP

I managed to get the last copy of this record from the Youth Attack store. This is the second pressing on blue/grey vinyl limited to 500. Comes with bonus one sided 7". Fast distorted punk hardcore that people pay way too much for on ebay.

Shrinebuilder LP

My girlfriend brought this back for me from her recent holiday in Brisbane. Records are definitely the way to my heart. For those that don't know, Shrinebuilder is a doom/stoner metal supergroup featuring members of Saint Vitus, Neurosis, Sleep and Melvins. If you like any of those bands you will probably dig this too.

Comes in a sweet gatefold sleeve with 2 slabs of coloured vinyl and an etched side 3. This one's the European pressing and there's a different colour scheme for the US pressing. They have a track up on myspace to check out and you can buy it from Neurot Recordings.

Dry Rot - Philistine

I actually found this at a local record store which was quite a surprise. Living in Perth, Western Australia I've gotten used to having to mailorder everything. This record is amazing. It sounds like some mental patients that started a hardcore band in the asylum music room. The lyrics and artwork are just as weird.

Parts Unknown Records have put together a really nice package for this release. Comes with printed inner sleeve, foldout poster and a funny little order form. If you're boycotting this band because they're christian then you're really missing out.

Dead Kennedys - Plastic Surgery Disasters

Whenever I run out of new records to post I'm going to pull out some old ones from my collection. This ones Dead Kennedys 1982 album Plastic Surgery Disasters. It's an Australian pressing on pink vinyl and I'm pretty sure the pink pressing was exclusive to Australia. One of the first punk bands I got into as a teenager and although I don't listen to them much anymore it's a classic album worth giving a spin every once in a while.

The best thing about this release is the 28 page booklet filled with Winston Smith collage art. I could stare at his work for hours and this record makes a good soundtrack to go with it.

Extortion Bootleg

This is one strange record put out by Coughin Cunt Records. The cover is a rip off of the artwork for the up coming Extortion Demo 7" on Coffin Cut Records. It's a photocopied piece of paper glued to the back of a Terminal Cancer cover. My copy came with bonus staples that prevent you from getting the record out. The music is just the A side of the Terminal Cancer 7" and Extortion's side of the Jed Whitey split 7". Same as a mispressed test pressing that I saw selling on ebay not long ago. Don't know if these are leftover test pressings or a bootleg of a test pressing? Apparently there's a 100 of these out there.

Cult Sick

Went to a couple of the Cult Minds shows on the weekend. Really good hyper speed punk/hardcore from Melbourne. They've only got a demo tape out at the moment but I bought a 7" from 2 of the dudes previous band Cut Sick at the show too. Both of these you should be able to get from the band or Missing Link.

Cult Minds - Demo

Cut Sick - Fraudulent Little Fuckers E.P
