New distro stock: Thought Broadcast, Diät, Black Rain, Hour House


Various new distro titles available from the Blackest Ever Black webshop this week. These include Social Acid, the latest release from the always compelling Thought Broadcast, released in an edition of 100 on Marco Raspberry Bulbs’ Personnel label, and already sold out at source; Hour House’s wonderful Chiltern House LP on Penultimate Press, which along with Diät’s Positive Energy is undoubtedly one of the records of the year; a re-stock of Penultimate’s handsome 2015 edition of the Ksiezyc LP (something no home should be without); and a brawny new collaboration between Black Rain & Shapednoise on the latter’s own Cosmorhythmatic label.

Still in stock: Hypnotic Sleep’s self-titled LP of drug-destroyed exotica on Berlin’s Static Age; Richard Youngs’ dub-deconstructing Primary Concrete Attack; and that 11-minute d-beat epic from Impalers on Static Shock. Enlivening additions to any record collection, to be sure.

Latest warehouse finds, re-stocks and distro additions in Blackest webshop


We’ve found a few copies of some out-of-print and sought after BEB titles from 2013-14, including Prurient’s Through The Window LP, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement’s Black Magic Cannot Cross Water LP, and Tomorrow The Rain Will Fall Upwards’ How Great A Fame Has Departed? 10″. Also vinyl and CD re-stocks of albums from Black Rain, Dalhous, Raspberry Bulbs, Secret Boyfriend, Barnett + Coloccia, Tropic of Cancer, Lustmord, Weekend and Killing Sound.

In terms of distro stock, we have three new hand-picked titles in from Static Shock UK: Sheer Mag’s rampaging debut EP, a lush reissue of Ultra-Violent’s pulverising Crime For Revenge 7″ and a killer 12″ of strung-out D-beat from Impalers. Also last remaining copies of Richard Youngs’ “dub” CD on Fourth Dimension, Primary Concrete Attack and a pair of Stefan Jaworzyn’s thoroughly essential Eaten Away By Shadows comps, also on CD. Last but not least, we found a few unsold copies of the limited edition Lustmord art print by Simon Fowler; needless to say, these will not come round again.

UPDATE: The Prurient and Rainforest LPs are now gone, but we’ll be getting hold of some more at the end of June. The other bits and pieces mentioned above we still have, and we’ve also just added a couple of excellent 2012/13 LPs on Jartecknet, Bremen’s debut LP on Skrammel, and Mischa Pavlovski’s Kapitel on Posh Isolation.

New distribution titles now available


We’re currently in the process expanding our modest distro operation, our love of papercuts and post office bureaucracy seemingly boundless. Regular punters will have noticed, and indeed taken advantage of, the fact that we sporadically stock titles from labels like Downwards, Posh Isolation, Test Centre and Penultimate Press, to name a few. Put simply, this will continue, but now with more consistency and frequency, and an altogether wider range.

New to the shop this week: a welcome slew of re-presses from our n’er-do-well neighbours, ReadyMade Distribution. These include the first four 12″ releases from their Frozen Border imprint, including the classic, still sort-of-anonymous FB01, and handful of early Horizontal Ground 12″s. The Frozen Borders are all (naturally) hand-stamped white-labels, and come with a fold-out A3 poster; the Horizontal Grounds have printed labels and a fold-out A3 poster too, this one designed by Silent Editions (Juan Mendez).

Also just added: re-presses of Cut Hands‘ ‘Madwoman’ 12″, and Dva Damas‘s Nightshade LP (with CD included), both on Downwards.
