AUS, DRUX, LIFE FUCKER: New Static Age LPs

£11.00

4 new or recent releases from Berlin's Static Age Records

AUS S/T LP

- "How does something so vintage sound like such a breath of fresh air? Berlin's AUS tap into the Heimatland's heritage of notoriously cold and humourless nihilism to produce a danceable sense of dread. When the rhythm section isn't driving us closer to armageddon it's providing a pounding tribal backdrop for brooding and disaffected witchy incantations. Distant guitars cut like broken glass and the synth rises up through the cracks like a blend of cigarette smoke and fog machine.

Collectors take note: Comes in a heavy 320g sleeve with band photo in handstamped wax envelope. Night time only record" (Daryl Sulfate, Diät)

DRUX S/T LP

- "Straight ahead 80s style influenced hardcore filled with punching mid tempo parts, showing hints of classic Boston style like SSD with the UK82 sound of Chaos UK. There‘s a video of an old Negative Approach show where a bunch of young Hardcore kids are going wild in front of the stage. They were singing along and slam-dancing to every single song. Every time I think about this gig I’m like ‘Damn, I need to time-travel straight to the 80’s’. As this won’t work out in the near future I’m more than stoked about the fact that there’s a new band from Leipzig / Germany that brings back the same energy and the same raw style that my heroes from the past had to offer. The first full length release from DRUX makes me wanna cut my hair with a rusty razor and to smash my head against the wall, as every single song brings this positive kind of aggression I’ve been searching for far too long. Not only the band’s live performance and also the recordings feel like a hit in your stomach. Songtitles like ‘Disguise Yourself’ and ‘Bondage’ already indicate to which kind of Hardcore DRUX wants to tie up the listeners to. Ten songs that feel like a whips’ lash on your naked ass. It’s literally one of the best records you’ll find in 2018"

LIFE FUCKER Z LP

- Just when you thought these primates looked like they'd hit the evolutionary ceiling, they emerge from the marshlands with ‘Z’ to reveal themselves as the missing link between the Sexual, Destino Final and Chaos Z that’s been puzzling discogs junkies and pit warriors alike for decades. ‘Z’, the first initial of LF vocalist Kalo’s single biggest costume influence (Zorro) and also the name of this new release, this cut is primal but not primitive, the sound of a seasoned pack indulging in their instincts. Comes with A2 double sided poster and Obi Strip

PADKAROSDA Tétova Lelkek LP

- Budapest spikeys decorating their raw punk aesthetic with a good dose of darkness in the Eastern European tradition of bands like Tozibabe, Siekiera and everyone else Killing Joke rubbed off on when they used to tour behind the Iron Curtain. Heavy Tip on Sleeve, oversized card and huge insert
