Two new releases out now!


NEW RELEASES: 
After a bunch of various hold up's that it's not worth boring anyone with, the two latest Static Shock releases are now available to order! They are both pretty different to one another, and I'm equally excited about both:


SSR015: VIOLENT REACTION - S/T 7"
Following a promising demo last year, Liverpool's Violent Reaction finally release their debut 7" ep. Six tracks of undiluted hardcore punk that are more influenced by Discharge, Poison Idea, Out Cold and Blitz than the likes of Youth Of Today, VR is for those who like their straight edge hardcore a little more antisocial.Originally started as a one man project by Tom Pimlott (Sectarian Violence, Nowhere Fast), VR is now playing live with members of Stab and Abolition backing him up. The record comes in an A3 wraparound sleeve and handstamped coloured innersleeves. First press is limited to 326 copies on black vinyl and is a split release with Quality Control HQ.

SSR016: SEA LIONS / GOLDEN GRRRLS - Split 7"
Oxnard, California's Sea Lions came over to the UK for the first time in July 2012 for Indietracks fest and embarked on a tour with London / Glasgow group Golden Grrrls. To commemorate the occasion they released a limited tour 7" which now sees a world wide release. Both bands contributed an original song and a cover version. Sea Lions take apart 'Nervous Breakdown' by Black Flag, turning it into a shambling nugget of shrill guitar versus Adrian Pillado's laconic vocal delivery and contributed 'On and Off' - as close to an anthem as Sea Lions get. Golden Grrrls tackle 'I Don't Want You Anyway' by kiwi group Look Blue Go Purple, remaining fairly faithful to the original with some added energy, while their original is a garage pop bullet in the form of 'Billy,' which sees Ruari MacLean take lead vocal to counter the female backing. 4 songs as good as any you're going to hear this year. A one time pressing of 600 copies. Hand stamped labels and comes with download code. A split release with Night School Records.

REPRESSES:
I've also just repressed two older releases to co-incide with bands summer tours (both are already over, but I've heard nothing but good things about both), so if you haven't picked either of these up already, you now have another chance. Both are great and are two of my favourite releases so far:

SSR06: URBAN BLIGHT - Total War 7" (Forth pressing - 205 copies)
ORDER HERE - http://www.staticshockrecords.com/distro/

SSR13: NO - S/T 12" (Second pressing - 220 copies)
