It’s the start of the year and lots of the smaller record labels have sales going on, so it seemed a bit of a shame not to take advantage of what’s on offer.
First up was Lockjaw Records sale. I know the chap who runs Lockjaw quite well as he plays in Darko, so we had a chat and I picked up a few nice releases from him.
These sweet skate punk/melodic hardcore albums were added to the collection:
After The Fall – Unkind
Which came on clear vinyl with a black smoke effect to it, really looks great!

Adrenalized – Docet Umbra

Mighty Midgets – Building Ruins For The Future

And I picked up Starry – Weary Bones / Restless Heart
Sadly Starry are no more, but you can check them out here: https://www.facebook.com/Starrypunkrock and I think the record if online for free too.
Also in the package for free came a split 7” single from Fighting Fiction and Sweet Empire. Now I do like Sweet Empire, Fighting Fiction to be honest I am not so fussed about. But, their drummer on this record is a friend of mine and we’ve played in bands together many years ago.
Nice haul. I have also ordered some bits from Specialist Subject Records sale, but I think they’re waiting to ship them with the Muncie Girls album I have on pre-order.
