Airfix Kits “Playing Both Sides”

Tense working class post-punk from San Francisco. Debut release from 2/3rds ex Giant Haystacks. As much as we liked that band, this new incarnation is even better, hookier and more direct. Minutemen meets Wire with a distinct DIY sensibility. Or, as the band describes themselves, “Gang Of Four getting rat-arsed on cider and covering the entire Strength Through Oi! comp.” That’ll work too. All copies come with download code. BLUE VINYL OUTTA PRINT, BLACK STILL AVAILABLE.

Goodnight Loving – Nothing Conquers Us 7″



First 200 come on gold vinyl, available via mailorder ONLY.

Soulful, catchy, inventive garage/americana/whatever from hard-touring, crazy-prolific Milwaukee kids.

Two of their best songs yet, no foolin’.

We’ve wanted to do something with this band for years, but the stars have never aligned until just now. Hopefully not their last release for Dirtnap, these guys really are one of our very favorite bands.

Comes with download coupon good for Mp3 tracks as well as a bonus video file.

Here’s a couple of reviews:

Mean Jeans Updates

There have been serious problems at the pressing plant with the Mean Jeans LP.

The black vinyl LPs and CD’s WILL come out on Tuesday as scheduled, but the color vinyl edition is going to be delayed by a couple of weeks or more.

Thanks to everyone who turned up at the MJ Record Release Show and sold the place out before the 1st band even went on. Was pretty epic. Sorry to anyone who didn’t get in.

Here’s some sweet Mean Jeans write-ups.
