One small step for MRR…

Wed, 08 Apr 2009 19:16:43 +0000

Oh, yes, changes are afoot here at MRR. Perhaps you’ve noticed the new look of the website? Well, don’t get too used to it because we’ll be changing it again. We won’t tell you when, or too much about its content because we don’t wanna jinx it. But if you, dear reader, are interested in […]

Neon Ginn! We found this behind the record shelves today.

Sun, 12 Apr 2009 04:51:09 +0000

This is from an old Metal magazine from 86, called RIP that we found whilst doing a huge resort of the record collection today! Also featured interviews with Lemmy, Ozzy and Metallica, along with a piece on speed metal called “Shagheads Meet the Mowhawks.” Sorry bout the goofy scan, I am just figuring out this […]

Rokk I Reykjavik

Tue, 14 Apr 2009 06:26:18 +0000

This is your correspondent with another report from the YouTube front… Here we’ve got some footage from “Rokk Í Reykjavík,” the 1982 documentary on the Icelandic punk/post-punk/wave/etc. scene of the early ’80s. The band that plays after the Santa Claus dude in the sauna is Vonbrigði (“Disappointment”) with a jam reminiscent of Peter and the […]

Fodido e Xerocado photozine

Thu, 16 Apr 2009 04:19:25 +0000

We got a big treat in the mailbox recently. From Daigo Oliva and Mateus Mondini, two of the best current photographers in the punk scene, it’s issues 8, 9 and 10 of Fodido e Xerocado photozine outta Brazil. Lovingly packaged in hand stamped and screen-printed envelopes, this fanzine is the perfect confluence of honed artistry […]

HUL – “Den Danske Ungdom” LP

Wed, 22 Apr 2009 20:00:06 +0000

Dear Reader, you are so lucky this reissue is seeing the light of day. Pre-AMDI PETERSEN’S ARMÉ, YOUNG WASTENERS, and NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, etc… and this is the crème de la crème. Den Danske Ungdom is an impeccable record—it’s on my top-ten of post-Y2K records, and it’s a desert island pick for sure. […]

Mentally Unstable zine

Tue, 28 Apr 2009 18:48:50 +0000

One of the greatest things about volunteering at MRR is the access to our incredible archive of records, fanzines, tapes and assorted other weirdo stuff! Mentally Unstable zine came out in 1984, has reviews of THE COMES “No Side” 12″, the GISM “Detestation” 12″, KUKL and ULTIMO RESORTE records. I have tried to scan in […]

Smalltown – Implosion LP

Tue, 28 Apr 2009 23:30:07 +0000

Smalltown – “Turn It Around” Just got done soaking myself in the new Smalltown record. Ever since their first single I have been all about this band — infectious Stiff Little Fingers jams with a touch of mod revival and dare I say early One Man Army. The last LP was a bit polished, and […]

From the Vaults: Reagan Youth demo

Thu, 30 Apr 2009 21:48:24 +0000

Fuckin’ Reagan Youth! They ruled. Here we have a rare and mysterious recording of unknown origins! It comes off a dubbed tape from MRR’s archives and as far as I can tell is a different recording than either the first 12″ or the Live & Rare CD on New Red Archives. The sound quality is […]
