The Secrets and The Ugly reissues?!? Definitely going to be picking those up. I'll definitely check out those Proxy and Thor's Hammer records as well.

The Ugly, yes, but not The Secrets— watch this space!

Ah, too bad. Either way, keep up the awesome work with early Can-punk reissues!

Thanks! There’s tonnes more coming— including an unreleased 1983 LP from Kimona Nails and some long lost ‘77 stuff from The Ugly. Just today I received a bunch of unreleased 1978 studio tracks from a band formed by members of The Viletones and The Diodes, and I’m sure we’ll be making an LP out of those too. In the meantime, we released records by three current Canadian bands this week, so make sure to check those out!

What are the chances of a Demics - Talk's Cheap reissue?

Probably none, to be honest. 12” EPs are too expensive to make nowadays, although maybe an LP with demos or something would be possible? The rights holders for that material are not known for being easy to work with, unfortunately.

Expecting the masters next week, aiming for end of June release. The ‘77 demo is incredible!

"This just ain’t my world…"

The (currently mothballed) record label I run, Bancroft Records, released this single by Wisconsin band the Goodnight Loving in 2008.

For a couple years preceding the release I had a couple demo’s by the band and played them quite often. This song stuck with me especially. I think it had something to do with living in the Great Lakes, going up north and the summer romances that would occur. It became a perennial fixture on all summer mix tapes I’ve made to this day.

When the band recorded their debut album with Greg Cartwright (Oblivians/Reigning Sound) for Dusty Medical they dropped me a note that they saved this track for me as I had been bugging them for awhile to let me put a record out by them and they knew how much I loved the song. Along with this a-side the flip had two “more rustic and weepy” numbers “Wisconsin Avenue" and "Pay Phone."

While organizing some records and so on last night I found a pinch of these stashed away. I would like to find good homes for them for $6.50 in the USA (shipping included.) Drop me an email at smashintransistors@yahoo.com if more details and price for International orders.

I also have a scant few copies of the Flips “That Girl Stacy" and the 2nd pressing of the Mystery Girls "Turned On, Tuning In" that I put too if anyone is looking. All the other Bancroft Records releases are long gone though so don’t ask as I just have my own personal copies and no extras.
