VICTIM PARTY - Getting To Know The… LP
Just submitted this, and it’ll turn a lot of heads. Not the usual Ugly Pop fare, but a current Toronto band doing extremely strong, perfectly-executed melodic punk reminiscent of early Dillinger Four, Leatherface and the like (not NOFX-style foodcourt skatepunk, lest that need be emphasised). Only 500 to be pressed, but an essential grip— I’m very stoked about this one.

X - Spurts LP (UP053) 
X - Aspirations LP (UP054)

Absolutely top notch first-wave Australian punk; first time ever on vinyl for the essential 1977 demo (Spurts); the 1979 debut (Aspirations) back in print again.

Out in a week!

X “X-Spurts” LP (UP053)
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.

Test pressings for next two Ugly Pop releases. 

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.
