The Urinals “Sex” 7″ (Superior Viaduct) $10

Venom P. Stinger Meet My Friend Venom LP (Drag City) $18 Their first and toughest-sounding record, hardcore in its intensity but very much Australian. Overlap with Fungus Brains and Sick Things, the guitarist and drummer went on to teh Dirty Three, etc etc. Pretty much impossible to find.

The Stabs Dead Wood LP (Homeless) $21 Second excellent record from this trio, finally on the One True Format. If the idea of a Rowland Howland-led Hammerhead works for you, look no further.

The Stabs Dirt LP (Homeless) $21 First long-former from Aussie power trio who would fit right into late-80s Aberrant Records. Highly recommended.

New Arrivals, June 28, 2013
