blckdth008: Galg En Rad EP

Stockholm Syndrome
"Galg En Rad EP" (2004)

01. Top Of The Food Chain
02. Holy War
03. We Remain Silent While Our Friendships Bleed To Death
04. A.M. Rodeo
05. Miner
06. Earth Not A Globe

In 2004 Stockholm Syndrome recorded nine songs at Studio 195. Six of them ended up on this EP which was supposed to be the first in a trilogy. The other titles we had lined up were "Pek En Veren EP" and "Schering En Inslag EP", but as soon as we released the first part the band ceased to exist. We still got a whole bunch of these CD's in stock and are selling them for practically nothing, so order it from our store or grab the MP3 files here for free:

"Access 2 Control" (1996)

01. Bros B4 Hoes
02. Respect 2 Da Herb
03. Nuclear Meltdown
04. Circus Of Unsuccess
05. Decline
06. Da Truth In Contradiction

A while ago I posted Ground Control's "God Mode" EP from 1998. Two years before that EP came out they released a demotape and here it is. If you are in your 30's now, and you listened to Biohazard, Downset or Body Count when you were a teenager (wearing xxl baggy outfits) you will go nuts with this. Members are now in Otis, Textures and Men Of Mega. Thanks to Bart de Jong for dropboxing this shit:

02. For Real
03. Judas' Carriage
04. Cinnamon Hotel
05. The Letter
06. Blah Blah Universe
07. Half Seas Over

The ideal record for this time of year. Envy The West's 2004 debut album is a unique mix of Palace Brothers, Slint, Calexico and Nick Cave, magnificently documented at Studio 195. They recently have returned from the grave and recorded a new album at the same spot so we got more coming in 2011. Until then check out this awesome album right here:

In the current process of releasing the Black Flag tribute 7" (also check the previous post) I was browsing through my Flag collection and stumbled upon this awesome liveshow from 1982: Black Flag is playing two consecutive nights at the On Broadway club in San Francisco in their very short-lived lineup consisting of Rollins, Ginn, Cadena, Dukowski and Chuck Biscuits. Here is one of those two nights, raw as fuck but good sound quality:

With the Black Flag tribute 7" almost out (test presses have been approved and passed around) here's one of the songs for free already, and more. "Songs From A Parallel Universe" is a digital release by Walker Diver available from his website, and as of now also from this place right here. Stefan 't Hooft performed and recorded 10 cover songs all by himself over the course of last year. Like I said, "Nervous Breakdown" is on it, as well as superb renditions of songs from The Replacements, Wire and Kraftwerk to name a few. This is a great cover album, and you should definitely take the time to listen to it:
