Sturgeons – Punk Rock Virgins // Forward Disorder (Social Blemish Records) 1980. Here’s an old KBD single from Canada that has a Skinnies, Normals, Bureaucrats, maybe even Stiff Little Fingers feel to it. What was it with those Canadians? So … Continue reading

Straight A’s – Self Help

Straight A’s – Self Help (Noise Pollution Records) 2010. The Straight A’s first full-length is a real headfuck of a record. It goes in a million different directions and does so effortlessly. Having been a fan of the A’s since … Continue reading

Šarlo Akrobata – Ona Se Budi / Mali Covek

Sarlo Akrobata – Ona Se Budi // Mali Covek (Jugoton Records) 1981. A solid 7inch by the great post-punk hope of Yugoslavia, Šarlo Akrobata. I suspect the A-Side of this single was a bid for commercial acceptance. It’s New Wave … Continue reading
