Are you ready for some new sounds in your life to get you out of that end of summer rut? Well, we’ve got ’em! The week is almost over, and if there are two things you need to get your weekend started and going strong it’s the Parasites of the Western World “Politico” 7in and Spits “(First) Self-Titled” LP reissues. I can’t say enough about each of these records. After dominating the turntable for months, the Self-Titled Parasites of the Western World LP was one of the records of the year at Mind Cure and “Politico” is more of the same. This reissue of their 1979 7in has fast tracked itself for a late year front runner onto the 2011 list, despite it’s smaller stature than it’s predecessor.
The reissue (first LP issue? It’s hard to keep track) of The Spits “(first) S/T” LP is exactly what you would hope for (either because you already know the jams on here, and couldn’t wait to get them on LP, or because you are new to these essential tunes). Primal punk rock that makes you want to tap your toes and smash your fist against a wall, just the way we like it! Listed below is a full restock list for this week. As always tons of great used records hitting the bins as well, so make sure you stop on down this weekend!
