Japan's answer to Jawbreaker and Jawbox (re: tighter and better recorded) are here with their latest full length.

(SNUFFY SMILES)

"Switch Blade Knaife"
MAX 5-4 cassette $7.45
Russian punk with a very heavy Sex Pistols influence; the singer often snarls exactly like Johnny Rotten. Anarchy in the USSR? God save Gorby?? Produced with and benefitting the Moscow Rock Laboratory, an organization of their more uncommercial artists. (MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL)

The 3rd and final installment of NAKED AGGRESSION reissues from Broken Records, this is NOT to be confused with "March March Alive."

AVAN 004-2 CD $19.55
Dark, spacious, and often ambient noise, seldom sounding like it was produced by conventional musical instruments. The players this time were John Zorn, Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith and Joey Baron. Japanese import. (AVANT)

AVAN 1-2 CD $19.55
Very eloquent musical interchanges and free jazz-stylee spazz attacks by John Zorn, Yamatsuka Eye, Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith, and Joey Baron. Elegant fold-out packaging with lots of naughty bondage photos. Japanese import. (AVANT)

AVAN 003-2 CD $19.55
Though they don't outright say so, I'd guess the 19 songs here, ranging from jazz to various varieties of rock (all fairly twisted, by the way) were inspired by stuff heard on the radio. Cited inspirations range from Conway Twitty to Agnostic Front. Eclectic and definitely swinging. Japanese import. (AVANT)

"Torture Garden"
SHIMMY 39-4 cassette $7.10
Psycho gung-fu jazz spun by the likes of John Zorn, Fred Frith, Yamatsuka Eye, Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz and Joey Baron. 21 short, sharp, white-hot splinters of pure, panting let-it-all-hang-out. This one screams. (SHIMMY DISC)

SMALL 11-1 LP $7.80
The first album from one of those obscure but very creative Colorado industrial outfits. These folks use tapes, metal percussion, vocals and conventional instumentation to form dreamlike soundscapes that seem to emanate directly from the unconscious. (SMALL TOOLS TRADITION)

"Age of Fire"
NPR 025-2 CD $13.80
A killer sophomore effort from these Swedish heavyweights. A blasting, evil, perverted celebration of militant satanic grind and atmospheric black metal with military fanfare, steeped in obscure Egyptian mythology. The last 2 ambient/spoken word tracks present a surprise ending that is sure to delight followers of LaVeyan satanism. Austrian import. (NAPALM)

NPR 015-2 CD $13.80
Elite black metal from Sweden, heavy in to Egyptian demonology and death heads, and heavy, brutal and dark like Darkthrone, this is a classic, extremely evil sound, recommended for those who like it raw and thrashy. Austrian import. (NAPALM)

Electro-funk hip hop with a 10 ton bass. (CFY RECORDS)

"National Health"
GET 568-1 LP $12.55
This is progressive rock at its finest.

"Lower G.I. Bleed"
GERN 24-7 7" $4.00
Two songs written before the "Bread" 7" but recorded later, showing off their patented angst-driven, nervous anger and introspection. (GERN BLANDSTEN)

"self titled"
GERN 4-7 7" $4.00
Good 'n crunchy, semi-melodic hardcore from New Jersey. The singer sounds like he's been in psychoanalysis most of his life. (GERN BLANDSTEN)

"Split EP"
BCR 029-7 7" $3.65
Punk is alive and well in Armenia, and here's the proof. Nato does a charming ska-punk tune, complete with sax and keyboards. Roe Dae Woo's "Tanks," not for the faint of heart, is a really raw live take where the levels go up and down with wild abandon. (BEER CITY)

"self titled"
HN 014-1 LP $8.40
A basement filled with wires, fishfinders and other shit makes up the props for this year-long collection of improvised "songs." Moldy silk screened covers, no two are alike. Torso plus Caroliner? (HANSON)

HR 23-7 7" $4.15

From the folks who brought you BRUJERIA comes this mind-bending slab of crushing hard rock, featuring ex-members of well-known Man's Ruin sonic detonators FU MANCHU. 6 extended tracks of pummeling heaviness from the depths of space, ending with NEBULA'S magnum opus, "Raga In The Bloodshot Pyramid!"

"Thrill Pill"

Two new poundings from the reigning kings of over-amped fuzzrock: a sick new original plus an appropriately twisted cover of an IKE TURNER tune. (IN THE RED)

"Hit Me"/"Bad Boy"
SFTRI 508-7 7" $4.00
A dirty, trashy slice of mutant rock'n'roll mayhem comparable to the Grifters, the Oblivians, '68 Comeback, or even R.L. Burnside. (SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY)

"Rozz & Negative Trend: The Pop Sessions"
WNR 003-2 CD $7.75
The very first, short-lived version of this seminal San Francisco punk band recorded 9 songs in the studio before singer Rozz Rezabek-Wright went on to other projects. The tapes have lain buried for 20 years, but here they are now for the first time ever! A somewhat different sound than the 2nd incarnation that recorded the very dark, fierce "We Don't Play, We Riot" EP a few months later, this is fast, angry, burn-it-down-smash-it-up '77-style anarcho-punk with an attitude...what it's like to live the chaos. (WHITE NOISE)

"A Big 10-8 Place"
SEE 003-2 CD $10.80

SEE 017-2 CD $10.80
Their first stand-alone studio album since 1993, this media parody-fest has something to do with a certain soft drink (which cannot be named in print without a lawsuit), as well as the world of advertising in general. A bit more manic than their previous work, good to here. (SEELAND)

"Escape from Noise"
SEELAND 006-2 CD $10.80
The CD re-release of NEGATIVLAND's best-selling recording. If any release by NEGATIVLAND could be considered to be a "hit", this is it. "Christianity is Stupid," "Car Bomb," "Time Zones," "Nesbitt's Lime Soda Song," ...they're all here. (SEELAND)

"Fair Use: The Story of the Letter U and the Numeral 2"
SEE 013-2 book + CD $16.35
An overwhelming and very funny look at corporately "owned" culture. The 272 page book tells the whole grisly story to date of Island Records' suppression of the "U2" EP and SST Records' suppression of Negativland's response, the "Letter U and the Numeral 2" CD & book.

Their first all-new, album-length studio release in years!

(SEELAND)

"Happy Heroes"
SEELAND 018-2 CD5 $8.15
Celebrity-saturated, 8-song EP featuring "Jolly Green Giant," "OJ and His Personal Trainer Kill Ron and Nicole" and Co. Sanders losing his mind amid "Chiken Diction," plus a fabulous 1998 Remedia Megamix of "Happy hero" from the Dispepsi CD! (SEELAND)

"Jamcon '84"
SEE 004-2 CD $10.20
Negativland turns the 1984 election inside out and examines the entrails of the rotting beast. A "live remote" from a convention of jammers, this is edited down from the 5-hour radio show that coined the term "cultural jamming," and is in turn derived from a cassette originally on the SST label. Two new sections (not on the cassette) have been added: Crosley Bendix delivers Negativland's stockholder's report during a picnic at the Universal Bemusement Park, and Negativland deconstructs Ronald Reagan's 2nd inaugural address live, as it happens. Too, too much. (SEELAND)

"Over the Edge Vol. 3: The Weatherman's Dumb Stupid Come-Out Line"
SEELAND 019-2 2xCD $13.75
Once available only on cassette, this deals with the subject of gay repression as only NEGATIVLAND would think to do it. Includes a special 10-page Weatherman dictionary that will help you learn the true meanings of all those strange words he's been using for the last 20 years. (SEELAND)

"Over the Edge Vol. 4: Dick Vaughn's Moribund Music of the '70s"
SEELAND 022-2 2xCD $13.75
A CD reissue of this long out of print title, updated and expanded! Edited from NEGATIVLAND'S weekly radio show, this version has its most perplexing host, Dick Vaughn, bringing the world's first ever '70s nostalgia show. Prank phone calls of the classic variety, an audio evolution to the heights of the DJ world, and Dick's patented ability to ruin his own shows highlight everything wrong with music radio (if you're an unfunny jerk). (SEELAND)

"Over the Edge Vol. 5: Crosley Bendix, the Radio Reviews"
SEE 010-2 CD $10.20

Comes with a 12 page, 4 color booklet. (SEELAND)

"Over the Edge Vol. 7: Time Zones Exchange Project"
SEE 012-2 2XCD $14.55
The Universal Media Netweb, its mysterious founder C. Elliot Friday, his Howland Island headquarters, and his fantastic project to simulcast programming with Radio Moscow, designed to ease the transition to free market thinking in Russia. American materialism, sellng ethics, lots of Mertz commercials ("Mertz makes up your mind"), Russian rock and the lust for commodities, and Friday's attempt to manipulate history, time and balck holes! This very funny 2-CD set also includes a full-size 1938 movie poster and 28 page booklet. (SEELAND)

SEE 016-2 CD $10.80
More extracts from the "Over the Edge" radio show make it to CD, including accused thief Pastor Dick trying to recoup his losses with a promise to get drunk on the air, Pastor Dick's Fellowship Dinner stand-up routine, the problems of driving a Dodge Demon, and expanded Bible Quiz, and Pastor Dick's exposj on the cult of Mormonism, with the wacky sound mix by Negativland continuing throughout.

At long last, their 2nd album, unavailable for a few years, is re-released on CD. (SEELAND)

"Self Titled"
SEE 001-2 CD $10.80
The CD of their first album is vintage suburban-electronic-junk culture-folk noise/music, packed in a box with do-dads and adorned with wallpaper samples and evidence of suburban culture and commerce. Each is different! (SEELAND)

"Sex Dirt"
SEE 015-2 CD $10.80
More stuff from their "Over the Edge" weekly radio show, but all music and no talk as the band and friends improvise live music, noise, loops and sounds around the themes of sex, dirt, and sex dirt. Do you know about GERMS? (SEELAND)

SEE 014-2 CD $11.40
In another installment from their weekly live radio show, Dick Goodbody, the Weatherman and an auto trivia champion broadcast live from Dick's Auto Hive as they match wits with real callers along the radio superhighway.

The package also includes a big, 14x23 poster and a Dick's Auto Hive fluorescent vinyl keychain! (SEELAND)

"These Guys are From England and Who Gives a Shit"
SEELAND 021-2 CD $11.30
10 years ago this September, Bay Area culture jammers NEGATIVLAND found their latest record sued out of existence by the powers that be. Now, ten years later, this has been delivered to Seeland Records in a brown paper wrapper with no explanation. Here is the historical audio archive of apparently illegal acts involving unwilling guys from Ireland (though it says they are from England).

For side 1, Neil does his worst in front of an underappreciative audience, including a new version of his infamous "Zipper Shtick."

CRYPT 032-2 CD $10.20
A roaring barrage of nihilism and enthusiasm that's roaring and aggressive, yet avoids sounding like a pack of 77 retreads. This is as real and in your face as Garage Rock gets.

VIRUS 271-2 CD $10.50
Columbia is now the third largest recipient of US foreign and military aid, the justification for which is the war on drugs.

"Free Market Fantasies: Capitalism in the Real World"
ALLIED 80-2 CD $8.90
Chomsky decodes the media bullshit and politicians' blather in another of his incisive analyses of the state of the world. This time it's the myth of the "free" market, growing monopolization of the economy by a few giant corporations, taxpayer subsidies and bailouts, and the "take from the needy, give to the greedy" rule that dominates economic policy. (ALLIED)

"Free Market Fantasies: Capitalism in the Real World"
VIRUS 236-2 CD $10.50
Mega-mergers proliferate while monopolies smother competition. Fewer than 10 corporations control most of the global media. The "free" market depends heavily on taxpayer subsidies and bailouts, while corporate welfare far exceeds that which goes to the poor. The captains of industry of today make the robber barons of the 19th century look like underachievers, and the gap between CEO and worker salaries has never been greater. This lecture presents CHOMSKY's compelling argument to change the power structure of America. His analysis is clear, concise, and thought provoking, and his advice is simultaneously pragmatic and radical. Originally released by Allied Records, this has been out of print for some time. (ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES)

AKA 001-2 CD $9.50

(AK AUDIO)

"For a Free Humanity: For Anarchy"
ALLIED 79-2 2xCD $13.10
Chomsky lays down some serious science in his 1995 52 minute talk titled "Capital Rules," which provides a clear picture of how US capital's present direction will lead to a highly polarized society of islands of extreme wealth in a sea of poverty, unless we unite and stop it. An accompanying written interview discusses corporate structure as private tyranny, domestic surveillance of activists, and visions for a new society. UK anarchist band Chumbawamba's 1994 recording "Showbusiness!," made as a benefit for Anti Fascist Action, contains some of their best songs, and the accompanying written interview goes into their musical and political history, and their attempts to introduce politics into pop culture.

A follow-up to 1995's limited edition LP "Imaginary Time," this is based on rhythmic noise loops and swooping keyboard sounds, supplemented by illegally scanned and digitally reprocessed cellular telephone conversations.

IG 01-7 7" $4.15
A crazed lab experiment, live in '95. Violinist Michael (of hardcore band Behead The Prophet) is the old mad scientist prodding, prickling, scraping and zapping away, while guitarist Eric is the sorcerer's apprentice, concocting his bubbling potions, gooey oil slicks, and stormy oceans of ever-shifting sound. The result is telepathic, dynamic, entertaining. (IGNIVOMOUS)

This duo consists of Mick Barr (CROM-TECH) on guitar and vocals, and Josh Blair (ABCS) on drums. Musically, this is even more intricate than CROM TECH, and takes more of a "metal" approach, with it's very intense, fast, free jazz inspired, sometimes incomprehensible, prog-hardcore, and comes as a 99-song one-sided, etched 12", or 99 song CD!

If funk is your bag, it's time to fill it up with a heaping portion of this here. An advanced course in J.B. inspired instrumentals: if you're looking for overproduced disco-soul, light-ass fusion, smooth RnB, look somewhere else, cause this is strict, straight-up, Godfather funk directly from the old school. Super thick vinyl in a super heavy jacket: the real deal! (DESCO)
