In Today: Life's Blood, Skull Cult, Elder, and more!
We got a couple of nice little shipments in today. Probably the most-anticipated item is the discography LP from late 80s NYHC legends Life's Blood. I know that Prank Records has been working on this project for YEARS, and I'm happy that's it's finally seen the light of day! Life's Blood are a well-renowned band, and as you might expect the packaging is befitting their place in history, with a gatefold sleeve, an insert full of liner notes and ephemera... basically what you've come to expect from top-shelf punk reissues in the year 2017
Next up we have the first two cassettes from Indiana's Skull Cult! Fans of the Coneheads take note... while Skull Cult don't have the gimmicky vocals that some people hate (not me... I'm a full-fledged Coneheads fan!), the guitar riffs and catchiness of the songs definitely recalls that band as well as other standout NWI punk like Liquids. Check these out, and if tapes aren't your thing we should have a vinyl version on Germany's Erste Theke Tontraeger Records very shortly:
Next up is the new full-length from doom rockers Elder, Reflections of a Floating World. Pretty cool packaging and color vinyl on this one:
In addition to that, we also got in a few other odds and ends as well as a bunch of restocks from bands like Boston Strangler, Secret Prostitutes, Cock Sparrer, Cryptopsy, Exit Unit, Antidote, and more, so dig in!
