Dottie Attie

Mastering the forthcoming LP by Dottie Attie.

Recorded at Portland’s Buzz or Howl by Stan Wright.

“Those three girls that you may recognize from the front row of so many shows are now the front line of Portland’s new band Dottie Attie. With a punk boy drummer and songs about condoms and how being a girlfriend isn’t always fun, they will make you fall in love.”


Anger Burning  ECD

Mastering the Anger Burning / Earth Crust Displacement Split.

Coming out on Spela Snabbare and Rawmantic  Disasters Records.


ANGER BURNING/Earth Crust Displacement.

It looks like RENS-002 will beat RENS-001 on the finish line.
Swedish D-beat Vs German D-beat.
I guess that followers of Spela Snabbare Records don’t need an introduction for Anger Burning.

Eart Crust Displacement on the other hand, plays dirty, raw and noisy D-beat straight from hell.”





Celebrating Tandang Store’s, Malaysia, first ever tape release!

Red Dons “Fake Meets Failure” Tape || Tandang 001 || Rm 8 || USD 3 + postage.

“Take the epic heaviness of FROM ASHES RISE, dilute it to a more punk rock formula, throw in the density of the WIPERS and add some early- ‘80s LA hardcore melody, and that’s the winning concoction of the RED DONS..,” – Maximum Rocknroll #329


Rebel Steele

Mastering Rebel Steele‘s forthcoming sessions on Universal Warning Records.

More action out of Denver, CO!


the Cry

Mastering the Cry‘s 2nd album “Dangerous Game” on Taken By Surprise Records.

“What I love about The Cry! is that they’re pop and proud of it! They take their inspiration from the source: British Invasion, Beach Boys, doo-wop. They understand the history and the craft of pop music. Ask them if “pop” is a dirty word, and they’ll just laugh and go listen to Buddy Holly. They write perfect melodies in their sleep. They sound like they’ve been practicing their harmonies for 25 years – even though none of these lads are over 22! But don’t go thinking The Cry! are straight-up revivalists. Maybe it’s just their youthfulness, but they come off quite “current” to my ears. Their angle is that they’ve “reinvented the two minute pop song for the next generation”. Combining doo-wop harmonies with ’60s pop jangle and a touch of ’77 punk, their “new-old school” sound falls somewhere between The Connection and The Biters. And that’s a fine place to fall! The full-length, as expected, is stacked with hits. In that mythical perfect world I so often conjure in my reviews, “Modern Cinderella” would top the pop charts for weeks! Everyone from your kid brother to your gym teacher to your local congressman to your favorite porn starlet would be singing it while standing in line at Starbucks. If the chorus were any catchier, it would be illegal in at least 17 states. And once that lead guitar hook gets stuck in your head, you’re doomed!”




Mastering Slugz S/T LP on Feel It Records.

“Raw, trashy garage that eases right up to the border of being hardcore. Has the crunch of early rocknroll rooted punk like The Damned mixed with the reckless aggression of Teengenerate or The Retainers.”



Mastering Personnel‘s 7″ on Doubledotdash!?

“Recorded in 2 hours in reading on a sunday afternoon last summer, personnel’s debut ep chronicles the drab minutiae of modern britain both at home and in public – of shared habitats simultaneously filling and emptying with unwanted gadgets, of dreary shopping centres populated by peoploids jacked up on red-top hysteria. set to stark, distortion-less grooves, the music is brittle but not joyless, simple but not stupid.”




Mastering Codetalkers.

“Two Drummer Post-Punk band from Denton TX. Members of The Distressers, On After Dark, Von Ehrics and Whips and Furs. Debut EP recorded by Mark Ryan and Jeff Burke at Cool Devices Studios.”



Mastering Metric Eyes.

“The Metric Eyes are an international punk / garage-star band consisting of Daniel from the Toyotas (Voc. / Git), Chris from the Briefs (drums), Laura from the Boonaraaas (bass), and from Madrid Kika (synthesiser). The snappy band style is reminiscent of the Toyotas, but also post-punk and synth punk elements can be found in the songs of the Metric Eyes.”


Autistic Youth

Mastering Autistic Youth‘s “Graves” 7″ on Taken By Surprise and Sabotage Records.

The record is to coincide with an European Tour to support their new LP “Nonage”.

“Hot on the heels of their NONAGE LP, here’s a track off the upcoming GRAVES 7″ for the AUTISTIC YOUTH European Tour 2014! The band will have a tour version with them, the regular edition won’t be available until after the tour, official release date is February 24, so check the dates below and go out and see them!”
