X “X-Spurts” LP (UP054)
This is a revelation— ten tracks of incredibly tense, desperate Australian punk recorded in 1977 and somehow forgotten for the next 35 years. Absolutely essential stuff for fans of the era, coming across like nothing so much as a berserk mix of “Pink Flag”, early Black Flag and the toughest early AC/DC, or Gang Of Four as played by belligerent Australian drunks.
Out August on Ugly Pop, alongside a new reissue of their legendary 1979 debut LP.

P.I.G.Z. - Bloody Belgium EP (UP050) One of the THE quintessential Killed By Death records, this 1978 Belgian EP has never been reissued until now. “Stooges” is one of the best tracks ever, pure raging tough punk.

PF COMMANDO - Rough Sound EP (UP051) Three tracks of essential  1980 Swedish punk rock, including the hard-as-nails title track— utterly massive!

Thor’s Hammer “Better Days” from If You Knew: Icelandic Punk & Beat ‘65-‘67! (2014)

Newly reissued on the reliable Ugly Pop Records, a compilation of Icelandic band Thor’s Hammer singles. There’s some rockers on here for sure, but its got a fair share of tender ballads for the softies out there, too. Very well-curated, a nice variety of songs, plus some sung in the band’s native tongue. Bone up on your Icelandic and grab a copy now so you can sing along. It is highly recommended that you bundle up with that Bent Wind reissue LP - that there is a real face-melter.

PF COMMANDO - Manipulerade Mongon LP
Self-released in 1979 by one of Sweden’s most notorious bands, this monster debut was the first Swedish punk LP, packing in 15 tracks of pure three-chord bash at its most primal and aggressive. Vocals are alternately barked and snarled, guitars slash and buzz, the rhythm section thrashes along maniacally in the vein of The Germs, The Viletones and early Black Flag— no pop, no art, just PUNK!
Ugly Pop is very pleased to be making this hard-to-find slab available again in its first legitimate vinyl pressing since 1979.
Super stoked at how beautifully this pure punk rock monster came out.
Jackets are now in house and vinyl is expected soon, so I’m opening up pre-orders before the vinyl arrives in a couple weeks.
