THE NUMBER ONES LP and FRAU 7" are out now!

I hope summer is treating everyone well and you're surviving the summer heatwave accordingly. To celebrate, here's two brand new releases out today:

SSR023: FRAU - Punk Is My Boyfriend 7"

"Static Shock Records gets the honour of releasing the debut three track 7" from London feminist punks Frau who feature members of Woolf and Good Throb. They released the much loved 8 track 10 minute demo on Tuff Enuff Records in late 2013 (which has now been reissued on LP by Dead Beat Records) and now return with three more short blasts of discordant and furious noise. 'Punk Is My Boyfriend' is a dirty and scratchy cut with pounding drums and an insistent guitar hook. It comes over like a mix of Pre 'Cut' Slits, Huggy Bear and Kleenex. 'Snakeskin' is possibly the only song in the world that could have appeared on both Crass' 'Bullshit Detector' and any Kill Rock Stars compilation. Final track 'Orca' sounds like it could fall apart at any moment and just about makes the one minute mark. The guitars grind over a busy bass, heavy yet loose drums and explosive vocals. DIY has never sounded so good." 
Limited to 400 copies with hand stamped sleeves. Just under 100 copies on blue vinyl are available in the webstore.



"The Number Ones will take you to power pop heaven with their razor sharp 10 track self titled debut album. They are a Dublin based four-piece featuring members of Cian Nugent and The Cosmos (Matador / No Quarter), Cheap Freaks (Big Neck), Strong Boys (Milk Run), and The Pacifics (Bachelor). Even though they are based in Dublin, they sound like a classic Good Vibrations band from 1979. The Number Ones have energy, passion and tunes so good, it makes you think you've heard them already. Each track is a golden nugget of power pop fun that never outlasts it's welcome as every track is under three minutes. Although this sort of music seems to have been done a million times before, it sounds fresh in the hands of The Number Ones. This is pure summer fun for fans of Rudi, Protex, Exploding Hearts, Buzzcocks and The Tranzmitors."

100 copies on mailorder only red vinyl are available in the store! If you live in America or Canada, Deranged Records will be releasing this over there in the next couple of weeks...
