Left for Dead return with Why the Caged Bird Sings a CD released by us and them! This one features the wonderful vocals of Magali from La Fraction and also Jenny from Inner Conflict and the bass and backing vocals of Kieran from The Restarts. You know its gonna be good, and it is! As some bright spark said “sounds like a punk Motorhead”, what more could one ask for? Motorhead with good politics!
Adam O first came to our attention when we took Submission Hold on tour in the mid 1990’s and we shared a gig with his Paragraph 119 band in Copenhagen. He went on to front Skarpretter and was heavily involved in the legendary Ungdomshuset 69 in Copenhagen. Now he sings, writes and draws for the band Dårligt Selskab (unpronounceable in Engerlish!) who we hope to release something with one day. But for now we have published Adam’s comic Wonderful Copenhagen in English. It’s a post apocalyptic punk rock survivor comic with humour in glorious full colour. It is also a benefit for Haven Distribution Books to Prisoners a cause close to Adam and our own hearts.
This release is one of our favourite of all we have done. Its by a band you’ll probably never have heard of but will be glad to hear if you are partial to anarcho punk music of the 1980’s. This 25 track Cd comes in an recycled envelope – we printed, with a lyric zine – we printed (thanx to Calverts Press for the cover) and a sticker. So it’s about as DIY as we could get! and sounds great!
We recently reissued an old pamphlet of Emma Goldman with a new full colour cover (thanx to our friends at Calverts Press).
