Phylums – Phylum Phyloid LP Out Now!



Attention, please! It’s not often that we present the absolute first release from a band. Generally we like to wait till a particular act has a record or two under their belts, has toured some, etc etc before we jump on ‘em. With that said, here is world-debut release from this straight-up, no-frills rock n’ roll band from Milwaukee, members of Goodnight Loving, Sugar Stems, Holy Shit!, Head On Electric, and lots more! They have been playing shows around WI for a handful of years now, but since they haven’t released anything, very few people from outside their hometown have heard of ‘em!  Don’t sleep on this band!


First 200 are on green vinyl and are available only at


Order your copy now, or download from


Free shipping with $35 order (US customers only, sorry), 1000’s of other titles available in our distro! All copies come with download coupon! Free Phylums posters with order, while supplies last!

Like a spore in a petri dish, Phylums slowly cultivated in the dank basements of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2011. With a common goal of creating stripped-down, primitive rock n’ roll, members of Wisconsin acts Goodnight Loving, Head On Electric, and Holy Shit! started banging out three-chord homages to the Sonics, Creedence, the Monks…any band with a simple message and no-frills attack.

Phylums took this primitive drive into Kyle Motor’s recording studio in Madison Wisconsin in summer 2014.  It took the band under 24 hours to record their complete debut album on reel-to-reel eight track. Surfy guitar leads and wandering fuzz combined with a rhythm section of driving toms and bass make up the core instrumentation, but a shades of organ, piano, and even a vacuum cleaner add to the sonic palette.

The songs, ranging from party rave-ups to off-kilter introspections, eschew the traditional boy/girl tropes of most three chord songs and instead focus on, amongst other things, alienation, the afterlife, speech impediments, and the frustrating beauty and monotony of modern life.


Track List:

 2nd  self titled album (first for Dirtnap)from hard-touring Ohio dark-punks. An improvement on their (also awesome) first album in every way. The fast songs are meaner and more aggressive, the slower songs are more textured and atmospheric. Impeccable recording, truly impressive musicianship (not a compliment you’ll hear us at Dirtnap throw around very often) and songwriting inspiration to burn. This goes way, way beyond the “punk kids playing post punk” thing going around these days. Fits in perfectly on the darker end of the Dirtnap Records spectrum, alongside such fine company as The Estranged, The Splits, Autistic Youth Truly an important and epic mind-bender of an album.

“There’s always a reference. I had a guy wonder to me, once, whether we all didn’t have big record collections so we’d know what to do; I told him if anything it was so we’d know what not to do, but that’s not it either. It doesn’t matter what your music brings to mind if that’s all you’re out to do-  bring what’s already out there to the mind of your listener. How cheap to exist as only reference, when you know that doing so will allow the gaps in your bargain facsimile to be filled in by your listeners’ old favorites, playing on the jukebox of the mind while your pseudo-irony-dipped cassette reels around the boombox fountain.  Shakespeare even said “There is nothing new” quite a while before Superchunk ripped him off so why force it? We’re all bound to similar sounds and states, a finite set of whatever rules we oh-so-inevitably choose, made infinite by the powers of imagination and music and love and hate etc. One foot in front of the other, then – one note, one step, one explosion and how that forces you to react to just that last and that possible next, how to prepare with only what we have in front of us, our minds and vicinities cleared by the resultant possibilities. We’d all play jazz for sure if we hadn’t been ruined by TV. Our whole lives lived punk in some way, each of us in our own interpretation. Obviously the music follows. Arrangements tight; surroundings random. Chance occurrences held to our breasts, you’ll never see the same seventeen minutes twice. Boys and girls, don’t grow up, and don’t ever figure it out. Nervosas are alright and so are you.” – Nervosas

Seems pretty safe to assume that almost no one doubted Radioactivity’s ability to follow up their 2013 Dirtnap debut with something equally stunning. Frontman and chief songwriter Jeff Burke (The Marked Men, The Reds, The Potential Johns) has certainly done more than enough to earn that kind of expectation and pressure. But Silent Kill, which finds Burke backed by Marked Men compatriot Mark Ryan and two-thirds of Bad Sports (Daniel Fried and Gregory Rutherford), does more than merely match the virtues of its self-titled predecessor.

Radioactivity’s first LP was rightly hailed as a sort of sequel to The Marked Men’s remarkable run through the first decade of the millennium, and while Silent Kill bears the unmistakable hallmarks of that band’s tightly wound “Denton sound,” Radioactivity can now lay claim to a sonic territory of their very own. Burke’s distinctive hooks dig as deep as ever, but the scope of his vision has expanded, and now that the Burke/Ryan/Fried/Rutherford all-star team has had some time to cohere, Radioactivity can do all sorts of damage in less than thirty minutes.

Although the twelve songs on Silent Kill abide one strict rule–providing garage punk pleasure at all costs–Radioactivity bend that mandate in myriad ways. Breathless ragers like “Battered” and “No Alarm” are as fleet and raw as anything in the combined canon of Radioactivity’s members, while mid-tempo heartbreakers “Way Out,” “Connection” and “Where I Come From” find Burke and company opening up their sound to let in a little tenderness. And then there are songs like “Not Here” or “With You,” which enact perfect unions of melody and kinetic energy.

Admirers of Burke’s legacy will be not only satisfied, but pleasantly surprised.


Track List:

1. Battered
2. Stripped Away
3. Not Here
4. Way Out
5. Silent Kill
6. No Connection
7. I Know
8. No Alarm
9. Where I Come From
