LTD + Richard Rose + Dracula Boots 10th Anniversary Vinyl! May 13 2019

New stuff from In The Red available for pre-order!

LTD (Louder Than Death) - Stop Und Fick Dich!  LP/CD
We are proud to announce the debut full length from King Khan’s Louder Than Death. For this project King Khan has teamed up with Sean from The Spits, Looch and Aggy from the Magnetix and Fred Bourdil from The ShrinesKing Khan summons the punk rock demons buried in his bodacious brown back side, lathers up the listeners in his mystical oils and leaves you thirsty, horny, riled up, ready to dance upon the apocalypse and punch it in the face all in one mighty fell swoop. This is 14 tracks of pure, unadulterated, full-throttle punk rock n roll! On tour now! Limited edition on color vinyl.

Richard Rose
 - four song 12” EP
Richard Rose is a brand new four piece band fronted by Chris Shaw (Ex-Cult, GØGGS) and Orville Neeley of the OBN III’s. On this, their debut release, are four Stoogey, heavy jams that are simply face-melting and stretch out more than anything from their previous bands. A debut album will be coming later this fall. Limited edition on color vinyl.
We’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds Dracula Boots album with a new limited edition red vinyl re-press of the album as well as these swank new t-shirts! Get em before they’re gone!
Rubber Blanket - New Garbage Truck / Pedestrian Walkway 7” single
Our pals at Spacecase Records have released another seven inch miracle and we have it! RUBBER BLANKET is the new project of Brad Eberhard, Jun Ohnuki—both of WOUNDED LION—and Lars Finberg of THE INTELLIGENCE. “New Garbage Truck” b/w “Pedestrian Walkway” is their debut 7”. The record is limited to 300 copies and comes with a silk-screened cover, designed by Jun Ohnuki and printed by Brad Eberhard.



The long awaited debut full length from the Wolfmanhattan Project is finally here! The band is comprised of Bob Bert (Pussy Galore, Sonic Youth, Chrome Cranks, ect), Mick Collins (Gories, Dirtbombs) and Kid Congo Powers (Gun Club, Cramps, Pink Monkey Birds, ect) and the men's extensive musical backgrounds should give you some clue as to what they're all about. Delivering on the promise of the band's debut single, Blue Gene Stew is a wild combination of garage rock, no wave and all around guitar fueled weirdness. Limited edition on color vinyl.






We are proud to announce the first Scientists 12” 45 since the the equally difficultly titled 'This Heart Doesn’t Run on Blood This Heart Doesn’t Run On Love’ in 1984. 9H2O.SiO2 is five brand new original tracks from the Scientists released just in time for their upcoming US tour. They sound as fuzzy and scientific as ever. Limited edition on color vinyl.





The Revenge – 4 song 12” EP

The Revenge were a UK punk band who released two seven inch singles in 1978. The records were self released, pressed in very small quantities and and are incredibly rare nowadays. The prices that originals fetch are nuts. They are also two of the most primitive, raw examples of three-chord punk rock to come out of the late 70's UK punk scene. We have arranged with the band to give the first legitimate reissue of these two punk rock gems and we are thrilled. They've been remastered by Mikey Young and this 12” sounds louder and better than the original 7”s! Limited edition on color vinyl.



We are stoked to announce the brand new In The Red monster head sweatshirts and t-shirts!!!


Featuring an image that we shamelessly stole from an episode of Leave It To Beaver, we feel that this new design is our boldest to date. We have taken this eye-popping image and lovingly made it our own on our very first sweatshirt printed on high-quality, super-soft Alternative brand grey sweatshirts and Next Level Apparel baseball t-shirt. This crazy monster head design made poor Theodore Cleaver a pariah at his school back in 1957 but we're confident it will make you an instant hit wherever you go now. Limited supplies.

Pre-order: THE C.I.A. + Out of print titles back in stock! November 30 2018

The C.I.A. S/T
C.ontributing I.ndividuals Denée Segall, Emmett Kelly, Ty Segall
This record is an encapsulation. 
The omnipresent fear & anger. 
& WHAT (!) is REALLY going on? 
There is difficulty, frustration, strain 
and a large snake. 
You can feel the pressure of it breathing on the streets, in media, and in your lunch.
- Donnie burned my mother / He baked her in the oven / Took her love of living and replaced it with an aspirin / If baby doesn't listen / He's gonna get a beating / Cuz mommy's getting angry / In fact she's getting even - From "Sedition"
This S/T, by The C.I.A. is an urgent musical notice. I feel it immediately. 
The pointed vocal cadence & lyrics of Denée Segall (Lamps, VIAL) is a sharp scythe, 
and the actual time is…Now.
I feel the same distress call and disposition from Crass records like Penis Envy or DIRT. in fact, if you took that…mixed in “Black Silk Stocking” by Chrisma and a touch of early Nic Endo (Atari teenage riot) and even Dinah Cancer (45 Grave) “Autopsy” era, you can get a feeling. And Similarly to those mentioned, Denée is putting a time stamp on THIS time. The spirit and her viability is strong in many a corner, and in many a heart. The alarm is ringing.
- Don't love you / Don't want to / Don't see you / Don't have to / Won't hear you / Won't be fooled / Won't please you / Don't have to / Don't love you / Don't want to / Don't see you / Don't have to / Fix your opinion / I will not be giving in / I will not be blind to the world that we're living in “ - From “Gunslinger”
This is survival sound, put on record well backed by Ty Segall, and Emmett Kelly (The Cairo Gang), who have added anything-must-happen, mercurial, constantly moving instrumentation. The sounds, consistent with unique monochrome, move like an engine, made gas-tight by piston rings. Sonic rings moving in tight machine patterns. And at the vocal helm is Denée, steering this machine in vocal directions across an exclamation point motorway. No salt, all salt. Traction & reaction. They built a sound machine with, and for each other. 
Survival sound lifts its head up when it needs to. 
Thankfully it gets put on record & released when it needs to.
2018 - Tim Presley

JON SPENCER - Spencer Sings The Hits LP/CD
We are proud to announce the release of Jon Spencer’s first ever solo album!!! After several decades of making music in Pussy Galore, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Boss Hog Jon has decided to strike out on his own. Despite the title, this is not a hits collection but is instead twelve brand new Spencer penned originals. Spencer Sings The Hits is a twisted take on garage-punk: super-nasty, super-simple caveman guitars, metal percussion and synth bass. This is some of his most primitive and hard-hitting works since his early days in Pussy Galore. Limited edition on color vinyl.
The SIDE EYES - Get Me Out / Stop 7” single
Los Angeles’ Side Eyes are back with two blasts of in-your-face punk rock. Limited edition on yellow vinyl. Catch them on tour with Fidlar this fall!
Also now available
CCR HEADCLEANER - four song 7” EP

GØGGS + Jeffrey Evans and Ross Johnson + more! September 03 2018

Available for pre-order now!

GØGGS - Pre Strike Sweep LP/CD

With their second album Pre Strike Sweep, GØGGS add a new level of primordial anxiety to their already catastrophic symphony. Recorded and mixed in 2017 and the beginning of 2018 by GØGGS guitarist and co-founder Ty Segall, Pre Strike Sweep explores the damaging affects of modern life before blowing them up one by one. Singer Chris Shaw uses terms like “space rinse” and “roadside surgery” to inform the listener that this is a strange and different trip, far and away from the Glendale Junkyard he romanticized in 2016, while bassist Michael Anderson and Charles Moothart (drums, guitar) provide a white-hot, pummeling rhythm to the rejuvenated GØGGS sound. In fact, all expectations brought on by GØGGS acclaimed debut are crushed into dust, revealing a new standard by which the GØGGS march thumps.  Limited edition on color vinyl. Starts shipping mid September.

Available now from our friends at Spacecase Records!
Jeffrey Evans and Ross Johnson - Caldonia b/w Cotton Fields 7” single
The kings of Memphis rock ‘n’ talk are back! Jeffrey Evans (Gibson Bros. and ‘68 Comeback) and Ross Johnson (Panther Burns and Alex Chilton) are performing again as a duo—a project they started back in the 2000s with a residency at The Buccaneer (RIP) and captured on the Vanity Session LP. This single includes covers of “Caldonia” and “Cotton Fields.” Limited to 300 copies.

Keep your eyes on ITR social media this Tuesday 9/4 for some exciting news!

WARM DRAG debut LP August 17 2018

In The Red are proud to announce that the debut album from Warm Drag is ready to order!


Based in Los Angeles, Warm Drag are Vashti Windish (K-Holes, Golden Triangle) on vocals and Paul Quattrone (Oh Sees, !!!, Money Lemon) on two Akai MPC 1000 samplers. “I basically wanna make Bomb Squad versions of rock ’n’ roll songs,” says Quattrone. “It sounds weird but I can hear a common ground where girl groups, dub, harsh noise, minimal synth, repetitious industrial, voodoo percussion, power electronics, black leather jacket rock ’n’ roll, and DJ Screw-inspired slowing down/pitching down of samples all meet,” says Windish. “The combination of these two talents results in one of the best debut albums in ages. It’s like Siouxsie fronting Martin Rev only better”, says In The Red.
Seriously, this is a ridiculously great album. Limited edition on orange vinyl.

We’re proud to announce two excellent new sophomore releases and corresponding new t-shirts available for pre-order NOW!
Lavender Flu - Mow The Glass LP/CD

The new Lavender Flu album, "Mow the Glass", was recorded in the living room of a small house on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You can hear it in the music. The Oregon Coast. The open sound of a band playing to an audience of endless water, sun, and sky.  A bald eagle flew by the window every few hours; as if to remind the band where they really were.  "Heavy Air", the previous album, was a home recording project. The songs started with Chris (Gunn formerly of The Hunches) on a guitar or a synth or a bowl of cereal and were built up from there. A rotating cast of friends and family helped flesh out the material. It could have been made in deep space or at the bottom of the ocean.

"Mow The Glass" is a reflection of the live experience. Four people playing together; working within the template of pop classicism. 35 minutes of music. This time, the Flu comes out of the water and spends a little more time on land: pop kicks, psychedelic derangement, beauty, spells cast via hate raga and rocker. The band moves backward, forward and sideways; often within the same piece. The music breathes. It doesn't deal in nostalgic regression or self conscious futurism. It just sounds like the Lavender Flu. Essential! Limited edition on color vinyl.

Power - Turned On LP/CD

Being that POWER is a band with just three members has meant that everybody carves their own name into the stone, a trio de force who share the Atlantic weight equally upon their shoulders. In the time since their debut LP, ELECTRIC GLITTER BOOGIE, finer details have been ironed out, their craft honed to a sharp point. 2018's TURNED ON is a sonic triumph. Three days in the studio has given birth to a titan - a thunderous recording that’d make Lemmy and the fellas blush. This harnessed power provides many a highlight on Turned On. From the get-go there’s an outrageousness in songwriting that is present on many classic R'n'R follow up albums. Stomping boogie. Raw glam. Punk’n’roll. Blues bashing. Primitive heavy metal exaltation. There’s not a moment of falter or doubt to be heard, it’s purely sweat and confidence here. They’ve created an album equally drenched in the classic moves of loud guitar music (think the sounds oozed by Australian acts of the 70's and a certain band from England featuring Fast Eddie Clarke on guitar, Philthy Animal Taylor on drums and God himself on bass) while also completely stepping forward on their own hero's journey - a journey through many moons of Rock & Roll. Be TURNED ON. Limited edition on color vinyl.

Three new “hits” from In The Red!! 


Arndales – “Shops” LP

Arndales hail from the Three Counties (Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire) area of England, a hinterland bolted on to North London. Members of the band have also performed with bands such as Country Teasers, Art Brut, Collapsed Lung, Thrilled Skinny and others. They describe their music as "Three Counties Ug-Rock".

On their new album they have taken inspiration from the rich world of retail jargon. The main source of lyrical inspiration was a shared Google Doc where friends could deposit the latest nuggets of retail gobbledygook they'd heard at work. Opening track "Prestige Pricing" is named after the practice of deliberately inflating the price of a product to indicate it's prestigious status. "Dark Store" takes its name from the customer-free supermarkets used to fulfill online shopping orders.

Album closer "Theme from A Big 10-8 Place" is a cover of the Negativland song, transferring the narrative from the Bay Area to mid Bedfordshire, England.

For fans of Country Teasers and The Fall. Limited edition on silver/gold vinyl.



ARCHIE & the BUNKERS – Play The Damned 7” EP

In The Red is proud to announce this brand new 7” EP from Cleveland, Ohio's Archie & the Bunkers. The band consists of teenage brothers Emmett (drums/vocals) and Cullen O'Conner (organ/vocals) who have been pounding out their stripped-down brand of crazed rock n' roll since 2014. Their live shows have to be seen to be believed. Anyone who has seen them live or is familiar with their previous releases on Smog Veil, Dirty Water and Norton knows these guys are the real deal and they aren't messing around.

We here at In The Red HQ are of the firm belief that The Damned are one of the greatest rock n'roll bands of all time. It turns out Archie & the Bunkers share this feeling and have been known cover the Damned frequently and have performed entire sets of their music. They even jammed with the band on their last US tour, having a better memory of how some of their early material went than the men who wrote it!

Therefore we are happy that Archie & the Bunkers have agreed to cover some of their favorite Damned selections for us doing them in their own frantic, bare bones style. Recorded by Jim Diamond in Detroit, the results here are glorious!  Limited edition on splatter vinyl!


LTD (Louder Than Death) – s/t 12” EP

What happens when you put King Khan and Sean from The Spits together? The results are Louder Than Death. This 12” is the first collaboration between the two titans of garage-punk and the results are as bonkers as you'd hope. Sci-fi inspired punk meets weirdo synth damage that's as deranged and dumb as you'd hope. Since the recording of this debut release the band have added Aggy and Looch from the Magnetix to the line up and recorded an album (out later this year on ITR) of blistering, whacked-out punk rock that is guaranteed to blow minds. Watch for the band on tour! 200 Limited edition silk screened jackets with splatter vinyl!






The AND BAND - Outhern LP (Spacecase Records)

The And Band was the continuation of Wellington, New Zealand’s late ‘70s DIY pioneers The Spies, who received a posthumous release (The Battle of Bosworth Terrace) on Siltbreeze in 2014. Renamed the And Band after moving to Christchurch, the group wound down sometime around 1982, but not before influencing local musicians and releasing an incredibly rare split 7” EP (with the Perfect Strangers) and this LP—originally available on cassette only. Outhern features George D. Henderson, who would later go on to form the Puddle (Flying Nun), and should appeal to fans of early Red Krayola and The Godz.  

Jointly released with Selection Records. Limited to 500 copies.


CR Dicks - Go In LP + CD + DVD

Cedar Rapids Dicks... get it? Andy from Horrors / Autodramatics with a wacked out garage / punk / funk mess that's it's own fucking thing, for real! On the f'in pipe, slurred and mean. Raw doggin! The same kinda great riffs & catchy songs as Andy's earlier bands, just splattered with some new kinda paint & wall. Potent stuff from an underground potentate. Fans of Gories, Horrors, and Hunches should find something to lurch to, here, for sure. Edition of 100. With CD and DVD included! Sold out at the source, get it now. 


New stuff available now from In The Red!!  


Simply Saucer - Cyborgs Revisited double LP

 In 1989 a record label called Mole Sound released an album of previously unreleased recordings done in 1974-75 by Canadian proto-punk band Simply Saucer. The album gained an immediate cult following and, sadly, went right out of print. Byron Coley called it “the best Canadian album ever made”. The NME said the album was, “a divine mix of Pink Floyd (with Syd Barrett still mercifully intact) and the Velvet Underground (when Andy Warhol was at the helm)”. The record has received praise from the likes of Thurston Moore, Jon Spencer, John Dwyer and Ty Segall (who has covered the band’s Bullet Proof Nothing). In The Red is over the moon to announce the first vinyl reissue of this album in 15 years. We have remastered the original LP and added a bonus LP which contains the live show from which the live material on the original album was drawn. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve and limited edition on splatter vinyl. We don’t get much more geeked about a release than this! You will be a better person with this in your record collection.


Shark Toys - Labyrinths LP/CD

 Los Angeles’ Shark Toys have been bashing out their unique brand of frantic, weirdo post-punk for years now and it’s a wonder why ITR hasn’t worked with them before now. Thankfully we are correcting this with the release of Labyrinths - 14 fast paced rippers that have been described by at least one person as sounding like “early No Age meets Tyvek on uppers”. With a constantly evolving line up it is easy to say this is the most aggro version of the band to date. There’s an occasional sax skronk (courtesy of Mikal Cronin), piano plink-plunk, and the spare synth squiggle here and there, but more often than not it’s a batch of four-on-the-floor pogo-friendly numbers that will have even the most jaded message board lurkers rethinking what the Los Angeles underground has to offer. Limited edition on splatter vinyl.


New t-shirts!! In our ever-growing line of apparel we are proud to announce three new additions:


Simply Saucer Cyborgs Revisited tees!



Des Demonas!! 


Tyvek! Designed by the band’s own Heath Heemsbergen


Back in stock!! Lost Sounds - S/T LP 


Also new from our pals at Spacecase Records:

Straight Arrows Out and Down b/w Francisee 7

Two brand new songs from this incredible band from Sydney. Limited edition of 300.


COMING SOON from In The Red!!

We have loads of stuff on tap for 2018! Keep an eye peeled for new albums from Power, Warm Drag, Lavender Flu, Arndales, LTD (new band featuring King Khan and Sean from The Spits!!), Earth Girl Helen Brown, GØGGS, The CIA, Dan Melchior Band and others we’re keeping a lid on for now. Also, new 7” singles will be coming from Archie & the Bunkers, CFM and Meatbodies.


PRE-ORDER: Des Demonas S/T + The Original Panther Burns 7" November 29 2017

Des Demonas -  S/T 


*First 200 on colored vinyl

“The South will never rise again,” Jacky Cougar Abok intones in a manner that suggests he is looking straight into your eyeballs while singing the opening track on Des Demonas' debut LP on In The Red Records. His hand may be around your neck as well! Sounding like The Last Poets acid tripping to 60’s Sunset Strip, Des Demonas drag you on a wild ride of fuzzy guitars and swirling Farfisa organ while the bass and drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain. And that’s just the first song!

Des Demonas hail from Washington D.C., and have been denizens of the byways and highways of the city’s musical underground for years. Jacky Cougar Abok is the six-foot-five-inch tall Kenyan punk singer who has drummed with Thee Lolitas and Foul Swoops. Guitarist Mark Cisneros has bent strings with Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds, Deathfix, and Medications and pounded the traps for The Make-Up and Benjy Ferree, the latter alongside organist Paul Vivari. Joe Halladay (Citygoats) on bass and Ryan Hicks (Suns Of Guns) on drums round out this squared circle of sight and sound.

The songs on Des Demonas range from Nuggets-style snottiness on “Tuff Turf”, to the brash warnings of "Liez" ('Lies… only seem to matter if you never wise up'), to the stomper “Psychedelic Soldier” and cool psycho creeper “Say You Tried”, to the hard boiled 70’s punk of Swahili-sung “ Golden Eggs”. When Abok sings “There are no vampires in Africa,” it may be a warning. It may be a fact. Or it may be a whole lot of unrelenting scuzzy fun. Dig the Des Demonas. Play it loud. Twist your wig.

- Kid Congo Powers



The Original Panther Burns OGPB Rock Me b/w Whistleblower Blues - 7"

From our pals at Spacecase Records! Tav and the Baron are back! Stripped down, "Rock Me" is just Tav and Ross -- lo-fi and direct; this single was recorded in a single day. If you dug Behind the Magnolia Curtain and Panther Phobia, you're going to want this one. Limited to 500 copies and released jointly with Selection Records. This record will not be repressed.




For too many years to count Lars Finberg has been a fixture in the underground music scene. From drum basher in the A-Frames and Thee Oh Sees to secret weapon in Wounded Lion to the driving force behind The Intelligence and Puberty - his whirlwind presence has been a reliable one; that of an artist that people look for and look toward. With that it is with great pride and excitement that In The Red announces Lars’ debut solo offering, Moonlight Over Bakersfield. Followers of Finberg’s recording history will immediately detect a plume of confidence around Moonlight Over Bakersfield, an air that each successive offering has inched toward but now, at long last, has taken full bloom. For the uninitiated this is an excellent place to start. The favors called in for this occasion serve only as to bolster the offering as a whole.  Frequent collaborators now stew with notable heavies from LA LUZ and MELVINS / BIG BUSINESS, creating Finberg’s Whole New Sound.  The great MIKAL CRONIN even guests on sax, offering sophisticated bleat as needed.  It’s TY SEGALL that serves as Finberg’s main ally here though, both at the controls and in performance. The results are utterly fantastic and you NEED this in your life. Limited edition on beautiful orange vinyl.

The STALLION - The Dark Side Of The Wall - Triple LP October 13 2017



The Dark Side Of The Wall

All hail the debut release from The Stallion! The Stallion are Ben Wallers and Alastair Mackinven of the Country Teasers. For two years they labored at the legendary Hit Factory recording studios in London as their schedule allowed. The project at hand was their long-planned/often-threatened The Dark Side Of The Wall – a song for song interpretation of Pink Floyd's 1979 album The Wall. At long last we are proud to unveil the results – The Dark Side Of The Wall is upon us.

It should surprise no one familiar with Ben Wallers' work or record collection that he would choose this particular album to honor. The Wall's influence has been noticeable in his music before (see Spiderman In The Flesh from the Country Teasers' Empire Strikes Back album). The man likes his Floyd - he even rates The Final Cut as “brilliant”.

It should also surprise no one that Roger Waters' compositions from The Wall take a morbid and twisted turn in the hands of Ben and Alastair. What was already a fairly dark and bleak piece of work becomes much darker and bleaker here. It's also longer. Pink Floyd's original contained 26 songs spread across four sides of long playing vinyl which, by comparison, was the same number of tracks as Pink Floyd’s four previous studio albums combined. The Stallion's take on these same 26 selections spans SIX sides of vinyl. Alastair says, “it's longer so it's better, right?” You be the judge but, we concur.

The Dark Side Of The Wall is a beautiful piece of work both aurally and aesthetically. Packaged in a gorgeous heavy duty triple gatefold, this limited edition triple vinyl package won't be around long. You will hate yourself if you miss it.

Includes download code. First 100 on color vinyl.

Kid Congo HALLOWEEN 7" & Ty Segall Band SLAUGHTERHOUSE 2xLP September 01 2017



Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds HALLOWEEN single!

Spider Baby / Apple In The Razor Blade

We are proud to announce the first in what we hope will be an ongoing series of seven inch records celebrating the only holiday that matters. Kid Congo kicks the series off in grand style tackling the theme song to the movie Spider Baby (originally sung by Lon Chaney Jr) and a very creepy instrumental. Pressed on beautiful black and orange splatter vinyl, housed in a ghoulish sleeve designed by Igor and pressed in an edition of 666. 



Ty Segall Band - Slaughterhouse double LP

Originally pressed as a double 10” in 2012 and criminally out of print on vinyl for over a year, we are happy to announce the re-release of Slaughterhouse as a double 12”. We’ve remastered it (it sounds better than ever!) and added one track left off the original version from the same session. Definitely one of our coolest releases. Very limited edition on color vinyl.



The debut album from The Side Eyes is available for pre-order NOW!

Limited edition on color vinyl!


The debut album on In the Red Records by Southern California punk quartet the Side Eyes raises interesting questions about nature versus nurture — the eternal scientific debate about whether a human being’s personality is predetermined by genetics or whether it’s actually shaped by the environment one grows up in.


The Side Eyes’ lead singer, Astrid McDonald, is a fascinating test case. The 22-year-old Angeleno is the real-wild-child daughter of Go-Go’s guitarist-songwriter Charlotte Caffey and Redd Kross singer-guitarist Jeff McDonald. How much has Astrid’s notoriously fiery onstage presence been influenced by basic heredity and how much was her personality inspired by being raised by two legendary punk-pop icons?


Similarly, how did growing up together as brothers in New Jersey affect the hard-driving musical attack of 22-year-old guitarist Kevin Devine and 20-year-old bassist Chris Devine? Much of rock history has been fueled by the unique familial dynamics and sibling rivalries of brothers in bands, from the Everly Brothers and the Kinks’ Ray and Dave Davies to Redd Kross’ Jeff and Steven McDonald. When the two Devines’ aggressive approach is combined with 23-year-old San Diego native Nick Arnold’s remorselessly throttling drumming, the Side Eyes end up as a powerfully controlled punk rock machine that actually blows past the sonic barriers of their past inspirations.


Produced by Steven McDonald, the Side Eyes’ debut album is a collection of 12 short, fast and punchy punk rock anthems. Astrid McDonald is hardly a shrinking violet as she rails about life’s tribulations, spitting out her lyrics with a bratty defiance while still retaining hints of a serenely melodic poise. After drummer Nick Arnold, bassist Chris Devine and guitarist Kevin Devine lay down the ominous metallic intro on the record’s opening track, “I Hate Dates,” Astrid rants about the horrors of modern dating while the rest of the band switches to a brutal hardcore punk tempo.


She’s even more pointed on “Cat Call,” casting a baleful glare at creepy guys who harass her in public. “You think that you can whistle at me,” McDonald intones in a chilling voice. “Just ’cause I’m cute, and I’m walking down the street/I’m not looking to be your doll/I don’t want to hear your stupid cat call!” The band slows down briefly for a sullen hard-rock groove to allow her words to sink in before the song switches back into a liberating blast of pure hardcore anger.


Even with such a rich musical heritage, Astrid McDonald doesn’t really sound much like either of her parents on the new album. Although there are traces of the early Redd Kross’ primal punk rock and the Go-Go’s’ prototypical pop-punk, the Side Eyes tend to play faster and harder than either of those groups, with more of a hardcore pace as Astrid bares her soul with a hell of a lot more raw passion and unfiltered anger.


McDonald is clearly a singer who doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She turns her withering gaze upon a series of distractions and foolish annoyances, from her various rivals (“Teenage Jerks”) and other assorted losers (“Dead End Boy”) to the perils of formal education (“I Don’t Want to Go to School”). 


But McDonald isn’t all about anger. She rhapsodizes over “a man who can who can dress like a chick” on the gender-bent valentine “Guy Chick,” as the rest of the group slams out a surging landslide of distortion. “I feel alive when he looks at me … I want a man who can be a girl,” she screams as Kevin Devine buries her pleas with quick, florid garlands of lead-guitar noise. Kevin Devine teases further with hints of jangling garage-rock guitar on “Please Float Away,” as McDonald’s vocals hover dreamily before the song is swept away in another tide of thick grunge power chords.


The album closes with “Don’t Talk to Me,” a cover song that was released on In the Red Records in 2016 as part of the Side Eyes’ split 7-inch single with Redd Kross, “Songs That Chargo Taught Us.” The seedily disturbing burst was written by Astrid’s mother, Charlotte “Chargo” Caffey, when she was in the late-1970s L.A. punk trio The Eyes, and it’s given a ferocious makeover by The Side Eyes.

PURE HELL April 12 2017

In The Red is proud to announce that we have joined forces with Henry Rollins’ 2-13-61 label to bring you this awesome new single by Pure Hell for Record Store Day! We’ll let Henry lay out the details of this record here:

In the late 1970’s. Ian MacKaye and I found out about the Philadelphia area band, Pure Hell. We found their two song single with These Boots Were Made for Walking and No Rules and tripped on how heavy the band looked on the cover. 

At some point, we were told that the band had made an album length tape that was sitting in a closet somewhere. In the middle of the 1990’s, Welfare Records released these songs, which did indeed exist, on album called Noise Addiction. I was amazed at how great the songs were and wondered why they had stayed unreleased for so long. 


In 2016, an acetate of Pure Hell hit eBay. There two songs on it, Wild One and Courageous Cat. Both featured on Noise Addiction but different takes. I was able to secure the record. I played part of Wild One to get levels, then transferred the two songs. 


I thought that if I could get the band’s permission, this would be a perfect Record Store Day release. I contacted Kenny Gordon, the band’s vocalist, told him what I wanted to do and waited to see what he had to say. He gave me the green light. I immediately contacted Larry Hardy at In the Red Records because I knew he would get the idea. He came on board immediately. 


I went back to Kenny to get some information on the tracks. In 1975, the band recorded six songs at Magnagraphics Enterprise Studio in NYC. The mixes were committed to three two-song acetates. The band lost track of what happened to them as well as the source tapes. Basically, the only way to hear these versions is the acetate. 


I figured if these tracks were not released, I was singlehandedly denying any Pure Hell fan the chance to hear the music. Not the thing to do. 


We sent the tracks to audio wizard Tim Warren, who was able to bring a lot of sound out of the tracks. Mike Schneider at Welfare Records allowed us to use one of his photos for the cover. Everyone involved waved any monetary income. All profits are going to the band. 


Larry and I being vinyl freaks, there are several color variants and they all look really cool. We put all this together to do right by history and rock Record Store Day. Our only intent was to put something great in the bin. This is what it’s all about. We are grateful for the opportunity to bring you this great music. Below is the back cover copy, which will hopefully answer any questions you might have. Thanks. Henry Rollins


Pure Hell – The 1975 Acetate

Side A - Wild One

Side B - Courageous Cat

Recorded at Magnagraphics Enterprise Studio NYC 1975


Kenny "Stinker" Gordon - Vocals + bass on Wild One

Michael "Spider" Sanders - Percussion.

Preston "Chipper" Morris - Guitars

Lenny "Steal" Boles - Bass

These tracks are two of six that were recorded in the session. The other titles are Pretty Poison, I'm Crawling, Rot in the Doghouse and Cosmic Love.

The session was cut onto three two song acetates, in the A and B side order above. This single is the audio carefully transferred from the actual acetate, the only one we have been able to find so far. I have loved this band for nearly 40 years. The chance to team up with Kenny, Larry and Mike to bring this to you is beyond exciting. Long live Pure Hell. – Henry Rollins


At the time we were unaware that a whole new trend to be coined 'Punk Rock' would evolve as it did. I'm amazed that this acetate resurfaced after being lost along with the other two, and that Henry, and Larry at In The Red Records would be the ones to illuminate it in the 21st century! - Kenny Gordon


Digital transfer – Henry Rollins

Mastering - Tim Warren

Now Available For Pre-Order! January 06 2017

BBQ aka Mark Sultan’s new self-titled album! 


This is Mark’s first solo album in over FIVE years and it finds him in one-man-band mode for the first time since 2005’s Tie Your Noose album on BOMP! Twelve band new tracks that are raw yet loud rather than lo-fi. You know him from his work in The King Khan & BBQ Show, Thee Almighty Defenders, Ding Dongs and Les Sexareenos. You’ve loved his soulful croon on songs like “Waddling’ Around” and “Too Much In Love”. You’ve marveled at his out of control stage antics. Any fan of moody garage, dirty R&B and tragic rock n’ roll knows they need this new album! Available on LP and CD. The first 200 LPs on beautiful color vinyl.



CHROME REVERSE - They Wanna Fight LP (Mag Wheels Records, France)

Here comes the long awaited debut album after a handful of 45's from Parisian band CHROME REVERSE, formed by Lili Z. and Iwan (previously in snotty garage bands like  No-Talents, Splash Four, Les Terribles, Loud Mufflers, Volt etc.) to do the stuff they’d always been obsessed with—R&B primitivism and dirty, early 60's R'n'R (known in Frogland as "white rock").

Stripped down roquers, weird rompin' strollers, cranked up guitar instrumentals, 5 covers by some of their late 50's heroes as well as their own Lili Z. penned bent tunes are but a sampling of the many moods of CHROME REVERSE's "They wanna fight". If you like your R'n'R raw, sloppy, greasy and frantic topped with a chick screaming her lungs & heart out, this one's for you. A Hot and Heavily recommended LP! If you dig early CRAMPS and "Big Pine Boogie" era Gibson Bros, etc. they'll certainly be your alley.



CHROME REVERSE - four track EP (Kizmiaz Records)

This single was pressed in a very small quantity. We have the last copies! Get it while you can!
