See Sunny Day Real Estate performing “Seven”!

I do not need to tell you anything about the band, Sunny Day Real Estate are one of the most influential bands of the mid-90s from Seattle. After 15 years they are again touring in the USA with the original members.

All these memories about classics like “Song About An Angel”, ugh, the whole “Diary” is such a fucking great record, one of the best Sub Pop has ever released. Due to SDRE’s new tour the label has re-issued “Diary”, get it on 2 x 12″ if you haven’t until now!
Go on reading to see them playing live.

React With Protest Records has just announced a new preorder deal: You can get the new LP of the Canadian Titan called “Colossus” on coloured vinyl for 10 Euros plus postage. The record should be done just in time for their release party on November 13th.

Records you ordered long ago…

…which seemed to be never released at all and you even forgot about them, until you finally get them from your mailman are always make me happy. This record is something really special as I ordered it like years ago, I think it was 2003. Moreover it contains one of my favourite bands, Takaru.

Takaru / The Assistant / This Ship Will Sink

I think the CD version of this 3-way split of Takaru, The Assistant and This Ship Will Sink was released in 2003 or 2004, but the vinyl version never saw the light of day. 3 really great bands, possibly not with their best songs, but a damn nice release and lovely reminder of the “old days”.

Watch some videos of the bands (sorry, I haven’t found a better one for This Ship Will Sink) in the following. Continue reading ‘Records you ordered long ago…’

Utarid Discography anyone?

Arwith just emailed me about the idea to release the discography of the great Utarid from Malaysia. They were one of the first bands from sout asia known also in Europe and the USA, delivering a great mix of Orchid-like hardcore and heartfelt lyrics with some new ideas.



Their “De[ad]mo Tape” as well as their split floppy disk with the also no longer active Am I Dead Yet! from Belgium were the first two releases on Broken Glasses Records.
After a long delay of a planned discography it should now finally be released, Hugues from The Flying Worker/Puzzle Records will design the artwork. They are still in the search for labels which want to be part of this release, so anyone interested in this should just get in contact with Arwith.

You can listen to Accent Fall On The First Syllable from their 4-way split 12″ with A Fine Boat That Coffin, Am I Dead Yet! and The Mock Heroic.
