Repressed Records get the last word in on 2016 with our annual Staff Picks. Nic’s Staff Picks for 2016 It kind of surprised myself with what records really resonated with me this year, of course there’s some long-time favourites in there but a lot of things that weren’t exactly what I thought I wanted to hear.  No embedded audio or video links for me, just my hamfisted words. &nb...

In 2014 they recorded some e...

Is that a great introductory line or what?  Francis Plagne - Funeral Mutes  (Mould Museum) I don't know Francis Plagne, but I like to picture him to be one those guys who think that talent would win you the X Factor, but his performance gets slammed by some has-been dude in a denim jacke...

Hi Everyone,  Thanks to all the great bands, labels, distros and people who make this shop possible and interesting.

ALSO, we wanted to mention: JUST missing out on the top se...

Hey! I've been getting on a bit of a punk binge lately, namely: Grotto - Manic Evil 7". I read this about the first song Bog: "It's about a creature coming out of your shit and feeding on your mind. You always knew it was there but you passed it off as paranoia and as the reality sets in you become the bog itself' and I thought , YEAH! PLUS it was released on a label called Pissfart Records. T...
