Mastering Catholic Guilt “Cabin Fever” on Kim Pop Records.

“New release from this Austrian hardcore band. They’ve always borne more than a passing similarity to Sickoids, and they continue that pattern here, perhaps upping the Rudimentary Peni vibes even more.”

“Finally the long awaited follow up to SNOB’s debut 7″ from last year. This time around 4 tracks of aggressive distorted hardcore somewhere in between RUDIMENTARY PENI and USA CONFLICT. The songwritting has improved drastically, moving the band away from their infuences and finding them in their own realm. A vital part of the current London scene and a must hear.”

Part 1

Remastering Part 1 “Funeral Parade EP” on Sacred Bones Records.

Part 1 formed in 1980 and were part of the original London anarcho-punk scene. During the early 1980s they played a number of gigs, often withRudimentary Peni, who the band became associated with, as well as other acts operating around the London Anarchy Centres funded byCrass’ Bloody Revolutions 7”. Part 1’s final gig (before reforming in 2013) was at the 100 Club in 1983 with Subhumans.

The band’s only vinyl release during this time was the Funeral Parade EP , released in October 1982. As well as an anarcho-punk classic, the record is now regarded as a seminal deathrock release – largely due to the dark, heavily flanged guitar work, morbid imagery, and anti-religious lyrical themes. Indeed, Part 1 have been described as “England’s Ultimate Cult Deathrock band.” (CVLT Nation)

This very special reissue finally sees this lost classic receiving a long-deserved quality release: A remastered 12″ vinyl in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with accompanying horror zine I…Paraworm, packed with never-seen text and unpublished artworks from the pen of guitarist Mark Ferelli, all contemporaneous to the 1982 release. 

In 2013, founding members Ferelli and Jake Baker (vocals), reformed the band with long-time admirer Chris Low (ex-Apostles, Oi Polloi, Political Asylum) on drums; later joined by David Barnett (ex-Adam & the Ants,Guernica, Lola Colt) on bass. Their first reformation show was at the Rebellion Festival that summer, 30 years after their last live performance. Since then, Part 1 have played a number of gigs to great acclaim and enthusiastic response with further releases and concerts scheduled for 2015.”

“A six track record, formidable debut, clocking in at 12 minutes from a newish London band featuring members of Good Throb, Skylark, Family Outing and lots of others. Biggest comparison here is probably Rudimentary Peni, all creepy bass lines and subject matter imbued with the rage of anyone living under the regime of Boris Johnson and terminal street harassment. A literal hail of rage, snarly guitar, 1-2 1-2 Actually fuck-you drums, with astoundingly angry female vocals. Ones to watch.”
