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…

FOUR 12" VINYL IN A SLIPCASE!
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of one of San Francisco’s most iconic street punk staples, REDUCERS S.F. and their long-time friends Pirates Press Records have put it ALL together for the ultra collector, or any fresh-cut, all the same. Packing all three LP’s and even a bonus 12” of demos, live material, B-sides and more, this is truly the essentials, and all anyone needs to figure out why this band is so integral to the Bay Area street punk / Oi! scene.
Including both released and unreleased demos from ’95-’97 with their original lead singer Jim Martinez, live tracks from their ’01 gig with ANGELIC UPSTARTS, and other very hard-to-find recordings, the bonus record (only available in this set) is an absolute must-have for all the super-fans; of which there are many...
MODERATION/WE ARE THE TRUTH
REUNITED FOR TWO NEW 7"s!
There are lots of bands reuniting to take advantage of the resurgence of Oi! and street punk, often for the wrong reasons - which makes it so much more refreshing to see certain bands doing it for the right ones. While life has taken these five friends in different directions since the days of weekly gigs and nights out in the city by the bay, their music has kept their friendships strong.
Reuniting regularly to practice the oldies until the voices give out (or someone is too drunk to stand up) has in this case, led to bigger goals for these guys. Writing and recording five new tracks has THE WORKIN' STIFFS fueled back up and ready to offer up something new to the scene.
The new recordings are filled with the same energy, grit, and booze-soaked-aggro that the stiffs were always treasured for.
