DAN MELCHIOR'S BROKE REVIEW - LORDS OF THE MANOR
In The Red is stoked to announce this brand new full length release from DMBR. Available now on LP/CD. First 200 LPs on GREEN vinyl.
It’s been a long time since the world heard from Dan Melchior’s Broke Revue. Their last album, O Clouds Unfold!, was recorded in 2004 and was posthumously released in 2009. During their five year existence, the band’s sound evolved from raw, blues-based rock ’n’ roll to a more experimental / post-punk style. Since the band disbanded, Melchior has carried on with a solo career that has been prolific, to say the very least. The volume of singles, albums and cassettes that he’s churned out over the past decade has been staggering.
Now, after a ten-year hiatus, Melchior has reassembled the Broke Revue and (in record time) recorded a new album. Lords of the Manor takes a very different turn from the band’s last album. O Clouds Unfold! was an voluminous showcase of Melchior’s infectious and melodic songwriting, with layers of extra instrumentation spanning 23 songs. Lords of the Manor is an entirely different beast; song structure and instrumentation are stripped to the bare bones, melody is ditched in favor of repetition, Dan’s usual lyrical style is jettisoned for a far more minimal approach and the band’s previous penchant for tightly-crafted two-to-three-minute rock songs has given way to long, sprawling improvisations. The result is dark, relentless and incredible.
COMING SOON: 7”s from: Wolfmanhattan Project, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Milk Lines, Ex-Cult, GØGGS.
Albums by: The Intelligence, Milk Lines, Fuzz, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, Traditional Fools, Tyvek, GØGGS and many more...

New vinyl-only releases from In The Red
Arndales – Regional Treasure / Padded Posts 7”
The UK's Arndales are back with two more songs of angular, menacing pummel from men who you wouldn't suspect actually do hate noise. Edition of 500. This single should be on the list! First 100 on yellow vinyl.
Pampers – Right Tonight 7” EP
Four brand new tracks from Brooklyn's Pampers. Anyone who dug their self-titled debut album from last year (or the two singles that preceded it) will no doubt flip for these four new slabs of thug punk. Hints of pop hooks and post-punk song structures struggle to be identified amid the break-neck pace. Great stuff! First 100 on greeny-yellowy vinyl.
Endless Bummer – Vol. 1 LP
Los Angeles garage/punk band Endless Bummer follow up their debut EP, Ripper Current, with this full-length featuring 13 sonic slabs of wallop guaranteed to please any self-respecting fan of trash rock. Recorded by Ty Segall at his now defunct Sweat Lodge studio. First 100 on yellow vinyl with red splatter.
“Lance Barresi and Liz Tooley may not be big garage names like Ty Segall or John Dwyer are, but as the founders of Permanent Records they're arguably just as important. They're responsible for putting out rippers by Purling Hiss, Cave, Running, Charles Albright, Obnox, Bitchin Bajas, and many others. Endless Bummer lives up to their noisy legacy. Joined by the Spits' Greg Toumassian, they churn out four songs of sludgy, dark, screaming garage pop.”
Red Aunts – Come Up For A Closer Look double LP
The Red Aunts were an all-female punk band that formed in 1991 in Long Beach, California, when Terri Wahl (guitar/vocals) recruited friends Kerry Davis (guitar/vocals), Debi Martini (bass/vocals), and Lesley Ishino (drums). Their brand of unfiltered music is toxic, taking a sharp claw to every riot grrrl cliché it can shred. After five albums, several years of touring, and a huge fan base, they called it quits in 1998. The girls recently decided it was time to wake people up and save the music with their unique form of ROCK. This is their “greatest hits” compilation, 'COME UP FOR A CLOSER LOOK' - a gatefold sleeve double album, complete with killer art and photos, plus liner notes by Red Aunts fan, Sasha Frere-Jones. First 100 on red with black splatter vinyl.
"The Red Aunts are nothing to mess with....wonderfully reckless rock."
- L.A. Times
And some non vinyl goodies...
In The Red is proud to unveil this swank new limited edition t-shirt that features totally badass collage artwork from our own Igor. This six color design comes on super-soft, thin 100% ring-spun cotton tees. We've used discharge ink which is thinner and softer than the usual plastisol screen printing ink and keeps you from getting a sweaty chest. Comes on off-white/oatmeal color tees. Stoked!
Theresa Wahl was singer and guitarist in the Red Aunts back in the 90's. She's currently the chef and owner of Auntie Em's Kitchen in L.A.'s Eagle Rock neighborhood where she's been wowing the locals with her incredible breakfasts, lunches and desserts for more than a decade. She's even been featured on several Food Network television shows. She's been a long-time advocate of In The Red and vice versa so it's with great pride that we are offering her brand-new, first-ever cookbook! This beautiful hardbound book is loaded with all her best recipes and gorgeous color photos of the finished dishes. She even pairs each dish with a playlist of her favorite songs by the likes of Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, The Cramps, Gun Club, ect. Foreward written by In The Red's Larry Hardy. If you're picking up our new Red Aunts retrospective you should grab one of these too! Food and music go great together.

Meet Your Meat September 29 2014
In The Red is proud to announce the debut album from the Meatbodies. Unabashed, unrestrained, beautiful and strange. Meatbodies, birthed from the mind of Los Angeles-bred Chad Ubovich, are going to dominate your eyes and ears and give you a bang over like you've never had before.
But first, a little history on how Meatbodies came to be. Chad Ubovich began ripping through the rock scene in 2011 as guitarist (previously bassist) for Mikal Cronin and, eventually, bassist in FUZZ. In between tours, he spent his time recording and playing shows around Los Angeles under the name Chad and the Meatbodies. In 2012, Ty Segall released some of Chad's bedroom recordings via cassette tape on his GOD? Records imprint. The tape was well received and people began to see Chad was more than just a sideman to his heavy hitting comrades. In 2013, In The Red took notice of Chad's crunching, grinding sound and added his band, now simply called Meatbodies to their roster.
For the first Meatbodies LP, titled Meatbodies, Chad chose to record in San Francisco, utilizing the foggy, psychedelic atmosphere provided by it's surroundings, as well as the powers of master studio magician Eric "King Riff" Bauer (known for his work with Mikal Cronin, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, White Fence, FUZZ and more). Chad busted out an album's worth of songs, barely leaving the Technicolor underground quarters of Bauer's trippy sanctuary. Though Chad and Bauer worked mostly alone, a dream team of friends, including Cory Hanson (Wand), Ty Segall, Erik Jimenez (Together Pangea) and Riley Youngdahl, made contributions taking the album to the next level before Chris Woodhouse took on the mixing, giving the songs final touches of controlled chaos. The end result is a sonic experience that is truly evocative of its auteur.
You can pre-order the album now. The first 200 are on color vinyl and will go quickly.
Also available are these suave Meatbodies t-shirts. Available in chocolate brown on light grey tee or yellow on blue tee.
Bored? August 20 2014In The Red is proud to announce the new double vinyl reissue of The Intelligence's debut album, Boredom And Terror. Originally released on Narnack records in 2004, Boredom And Terror is the first time Lars Finberg stepped out from behind the A-Frames' drum kit to showcase his own music. Later releases by the Intelligence were fleshed out with additional musicians but on this debut album Lars was an army of one armed with an 8 track recorder and a notebook full of songs. The results are as original as they are incredible. This is lo-fi post punk electro garage-core that is equal parts Devo, The Fall and something altogether it's own.
