CFM - Still Life Of Citrus and Slime LP/CD/Cassette The debut solo effort from Charles Francis Moothart, best known as guitar shredder in Fuzz and the Ty Segall Band and drum shredder in the Moonhearts. This is an instant masterpiece and you will hate yourself if you pass on it.
Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds - La Araña Es La Vida LP/CD - The latest and greatest album yet from this incredible band. If you haven’t jumped on board with these guys yet this is the one you need to do it with.

Limited edition COLOR VINYL available on all releases. First come first served. They will go quick.
Six New Releases from In The Red! November 13 2015
That's right, SIX new release from IN THE RED!!!!!
The Wolfmanhattan Project – Smells Like You / You Are My Glue 7”
Brand new band featuring Mick Collins, Kid Congo and Bob Bert. Sounds like the sort of trashy, swampy, sleazy, damaged music you'd expect from the gentlemen involved. Housed in a beautiful color gatefold sleeve. An album will follow soon(ish). The first 200 on color vinyl.
Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds – Bruce Juice / El Cucuy 7”
Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds will be dropping their latest and strongest album in early 2016. To prime the pump they are releasing this new single featuring two brand new tracks not featured on the upcoming album. The first 200 on color vinyl.
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Human Obscene / Shake That Bat 7”
Installment number seven in JSBX's jukebox singles series. As with the previous six, features two exclusive tracks that lean towards the band's more rocking and spastic side. No color vinyl – Jon says anything but black vinyl is “for sissies”.
Ex-Cult – Stick The Knife In / Dogs Roll In / New Crawl 7”
Three brand new blazing tracks from Memphis' Ex-Cult, whose previous releases on Goner and Castle Face are must haves. Watch for a new album on ITR in 2016. The first 200 on color vinyl.
GØGGS – She Got Harder / Billy Is A Runaway 7”
GØGGS is the brain child of Chris Shaw (Ex-Cult) and Ty Segall. The band had been in the planning stages for a long time but finally came together in 2015 when they convened in Ty's Los Angeles studio to record an album, which will be released next year. Other participants in the project include Cory Hanson (Wand), Charles Moothart (Fuzz) and Mikal Cronin. This single features an original from the album on the A side and an Iggy Pop cover on the B side that's exclusive to this 7”. The first 200 on color vinyl.
Milk Lines – Ceramic LP/CD
Toronto natives Jeff Clarke (Demons Claws, Hell Shovel) and Emily Frances team up in this awesome new band that is equal parts country, jangly-pop, experimental, psychedelic rock n'roll. This debut album is a stunner!! If you missed them on their recent tour supporting The King Khan & BBQ Show you're bummed! This band is amazing! The first 200 on color vinyl.
PRE-ORDER STARTS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13TH @ NOON PST!
It came from the GØGGS September 29 2015
LISTEN TO THE A SIDE OF THE UPCOMING SINGLE "SHE GOT HARDER" HERE:
CHAPTER ONE: GØGGS IS BORN.
Ty and I decided we were going to start a band together when Ex-Cult opened for his band on the Slaughterhouse tour in 2013. A couple years later when the plans were solidified, it only made sense that thrash master Charles Moothart should get in on the experience. The three of us have been friends for years at this point, crashing at each others houses and riffling through each others record collections after a night of performing, partying, or both. This is not a side-project, it is a necessity. GØGGS is three heads, one spine, circling the drain of the wasteland known as mother earth.
The A side to the debut single "She Got Harder" (out this November on In The Red Records) is one of the first songs we came up for this project, with an Iggy Pop cover (Featuring Zumi Rosow) thrown on the B-Side for maximum damage.The album dropping next year (featuring guests Cory Hanson of Wand, Denee Petracek of Vial, and Mikal Cronin) will lead us into the second chapter of the GØGGS saga. Smoke the Wurm. A new player enters the game. –Chris Shaw

The new Intelligence record has arrived! September 03 2015
THE INTELLIGENCE- VINTAGE FUTURE
In The Red is proud to present a brand new full length release from The Intelligence. Available on LP/CD. First 200 LPs on ORANGE vinyl.
Fittingly born at the dawn of the 21st Century, The Intelligence’s brand of art-smarm surf has become a touchstone for with-it rock ’n’ roll of the era. Perhaps a surprising assertion, especially considering their primitive and personal origins, but one cemented by the dedication and continual reinvention fostered by main-brain Lars Aldric Finberg. For all their longevity and prolificacy, The Intelligence is a restless, ever-evolving vehicle for Finberg, showcasing his presumably patented knack for sharp pop songwriting that rides waves from both the past and heretofore unknown. Hence the emergence of Vintage Future, the band’s latest album.
Finberg has always playfully flashed fangs with The Intelligence, but the hard targeting here makes Vintage Future the most thematically biting offering thus far. Across the record, Finberg combs over relationships, ambitions and his own values for trouble spots and indignities, highlighting his findings and skewering as needed. Jabs at the absurdities of band life have been a focus since The Intelligence’s inception, but tunes like “Nocturnal Admissions,” “Refuse to Pay the Dues” (a sure-fire cornerstone of any Greatest Hits package assembled) and “Platinum Janitor” confront living in rock ’n’ roll with an honesty bordering on the sadistic. Songs like “Sex” and “Whip My Valet” (the band’s most singularly aggressive and punk moment ever) manage to be intensely personal ruminations, nervously humorous and all-out rockers simultaneously, all with a wink.
It’s precisely that charm coupled with intensity that makes The Intelligence so crave-worthy. Well, that and the copious panic-stabs of guitar. Vintage Future thankfully shows The Intelligence continuing to move in whatever goddamn direction they want, keeping it permanently casual in this inhuman Business That We Call Show. Is there any better way?
—Mitch Cardwell, July 2015

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 NEW NEW December 09 2014
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.
