DREAMS FROM THE
FIRST TIME PRESSED ON VINYL!
"Dreams From The Factory Floor" is a bit of a change in musical pace for Pirates Press Records, but the angst and soul, and positive message presented throughout this spectacular record is totally consistent with what this premier label consistently brings to the table.
Louise has for years been spreading this gospel of love, empowerment, and equality to the (punk rock) world, and her approach has significantly taken hold amongst UK and European punk rock circles. She is a stronghold year after year at the infamous Rebellion Festival (UK), and continues to embark on tour after tour, big and small, both acoustically and with a full band
Working with the Oakland abolitionist non-profit Justice Now! (www.jnow.org), Pirates Press Records is taking the opportunity to help Louise wave this flag in a more profound way, releasing this album (previously only available digitally) on vinyl, worldwide.
THE BARSTOOL PREACHERS
ONE FOOL DOWN
UK SKA BAND'S DEBUT 7"!
The Barstool Preachers are already making some serious waves in the UK, taking the ska and punk scenes by storm! We are proud to bring you their first ever single - 'One Fool Down' on a limited edition colored vinyl 7". Off the back of a very successful crowd sourcing campaign and the success of their first two singles (released digitally), we are proud to be part of releasing this absolute stormer of a song - no doubt one of the most exciting records you'll score all year.
Side-A features the title track, One Fool Down, which has already won acclaim on UK radio, and will have you singing along by the second spin. It's an unbelievable tune, with an even better message. As we flip the record, the band show their ska side with a bouncy, energetic followup that has you tapping your toes all the way through.
The packaging itself is seriously impressive for anyone's first release... With a custom die-cut jacket (one hell of a clever idea), these boys are showing that they're here to impress, and this 7" does just that.
THAT OLD TATTOO
11" SHAPED PICTURE DISC!
In many ways, the photo of this little gem speaks for itself. Everyone loves a shaped picture disc, but throwing it in a printed PVC sleeve really takes it over the top. Truly fitting for this fine tune, by one of Europe’s most popular Oi! outfits.
Similar to the way that this Dutch band first formed in the 80’s but really exploded out of the gate with the album debuts in the early 2000’s, “That Old Tattoo” came out in the summer of 2014 on a split with GIMP FIST (Randale Records), and become an instant classic. Tattoos are central to this band, as Han, the singer/guitarist, is himself a tattooer; something brought to life in the fantastic video for this song.
With as cool of a record as this is, and being that they are limited to 1000pc, you’re gonna want to jump on these quickly!
3 CLASSICS REPRESSED!
From (timeless) scathing critiques of gentrification in the Bay to drinks out with your friends at the pub, REDUCERS S.F. cover it all, and capture it all, in a real, believable, gritty and ultimately nostalgic way. The three highly-acclaimed LP’s have and continue to speak for themselves, remastered, and reissued as part of this collection, they are sure to bring back wonderful memories for some, and undoubtedly help other people make new ones as well.
Originally released in 1999 on TKO RECORDS, "Backing The Longshot" set the bar, and was a core part of the soundtrack to many people’s lives for years. Since they formed in 1995, REDUCERS S.F. were an absolute staple for thousands of San Francisco punks and skins. REDUCERS SF made a name for themselves, not only in the Bay, but across the world, touring and gigging alongside the likes of SWINGIN’ UTTERS, ONE MAN ARMY, DROPKICK MURPHYS, WORKIN’ STIFFS, COCK SPARRER, ANGELIC UPSTARTS, and a slew of other street punk bands.
IN 2001, San Francisco's street survivors returned with “Crappy Clubs & Smelly Pubs”, the follow-up to their 1999 debut album "Backing The Longshot"! After two hard years in the trenches, playing gigs with the likes of DROPKICK MURPHYS, SWINGIN' UTTERS, COCK SPARRER, PETER & TEST TUBE BABIES and the ANGELIC UPSTARTS, the boys returned to the studio to give everyone a taste of their authentic, Pub-Punk, Street Rock n' Roll sound. Produced by Steve Burgess, bassist and songwriter of COCK SPARRER, "Crappy Clubs & Smelly Pubs" shows the band reaching new heights. The past has proven that REDUCERS S.F. stand in a class of their own in the worldwide Street Punk scene.
Still hanging tough in the streets of San Francisco, and gearing up for live gigs, new recordings, and more, "Raise Your Hackles" is REDUCERS SF's “latest" album. Previously only available on CD from TKO RECORDS (in 2006), "Raise Your Hackles” was certainly a continued commentary about an ever-changing SF punk scene! The 13-tracks on this album, available here for the first time on VINYL, are still as poignant as ever. Get is as part of the collectable ESSENTIALS set, or just on its own.
Here’s to this chapter, and the next…
