Very lucky to be given these gems from a lovely Irish lass who happens to be the talented vocalist/guitarist of this band. Such great tunes and beautiful pressings...especially the Night School split with etched doodles on the B side. From top to bottom:

Loud and abrasive zone! So chuffed on the Assück! The Dropdead one on purple vinyl is a common pressing apparently but I was interested to discover - before playing it thankfully - that side A plays from the label/inside out. Great to finally get my hands on that RB album too. All of these second hand for pretty cheap. Clockwise from top-left:

The Soupcans LP is one of my fave releases of 2015. I very kindly got it at the LP release show a few weeks back from the cover artist who is super super cool. A sweet patch thrown in too. Getting vinyl from incredibly talented ladies seems to be becoming a thing. The Ministry LP is still sealed and is probably the first album of theirs (so far) that has really grabbed my attention...a good mix of songs with a great Bob Dylan cover to boot. Also reminds me of Killing Joke in parts...funnily enough...Down By The River signed by Jaz, Geordie,Youth and Big Paul! Clockwise from top-left:
SOUPCANS - Soft Party. Vinyl, 12", LP, Album (Telephone Explosion Records - 037) Canada, 2015.
MINISTRY - Filth Pig. Vinyl, 12", LP, Album (
Warner Bros. Records - 9362 45838-1) US, 1996.
KILLING JOKE - Down By The River. 2 x Vinyl, 12", LP, Album (Killing Joke Records - KJR001LP) UK, 2012.
It's safe to say that the Chaotic Dischord is easily the most serious album of this bunch. Frantic HC, Powerviolence, d-beat, anarcho and raw comedy. Haven't come across any crass in some time and everyone needs a bit of Tragedy in their lives now and then right? Clockwise from top-left:
CHAOTIC DISCHORD - Fuck Religion, Fuck Politics, Fuck The Lot Of You! Vinyl, 12", LP, Album (Riot City Records - CITY 004) UK,1983.
GAUZE - 貧乏ゆすりのリズムに乗って. Vinyl, 12", 45, Album (Prank - PRANK 100) US, 2008.

CRASS - How Does It Feel? Vinyl, 7", EP, foldout cover (Crass Records - 221984/6) UK, 1982.
Foil stamp heaven! These two beauties are closely related. Albums that brutally demand your attention in some way. Some industrial, spoken word, post-punk, acoustic, and dramatic synthpop. Incredible packaging with both items shown here: The DIJ is the first time this release has been available on vinyl and came with 2 huge posters. The Sixth Comm had all the inserts and lyric book intact which is a pretty interesting read with some neat graphics. The SC is former Death In June member Patrick Leagas and Freya Aswynn doing some cvlt as fvck experimental music/poetry shennanigans. From left to right:
DEATH IN JUNE - The Corn Years. 2 x Vinyl, 12", Compilation, Remastered, Grey Marble (Pylon Records, PYLON 37, New European Recordings, BAD VC7-25BA) US, 2014.
SIXTH COMM & FREYA ASWYNN - The Fruits Of Yggdrasil. Vinyl, 12", LP, Album, Ltd Edition (Eyas Media - EYAS 006) UK, 1987.
