Cut The Cord That...Records

Diy Hc / Punk Record Label

this is the first song of the new Hassler lp “fed worked and watered” called “love this job”. 16 songs in 21 something minutes, he he.

Dead ?

Hey,

label isn’t dead yet, but it will be soon. Have way too much to do with tours and my regular jobs, but some records are still coming. The Condominium lp will be out on monday. It’s the European press of their debut lp called “warm home”. Get in touch if you need some copies of this or Wrong Holes “2012” lp i put out together with some friends. New band of the Brutal Knights singer and really great. Talking about Brutal Knights. Hassler lp will be the next record to come out just in time for their European tour. Will upload a song in a minute. Also check out the Catholic Guilt 7” i put out a while ago. Great hc / punk from Graz.

thank you !!!!

Levitations 7” is out now.

Check out their website:

http://levitations.blogspot.de/

It’s called “partners in crime” and features four song.

Melodic punk from Berlin. A friend said it sounded like a mix between The Go Go’s and  killed by death records. Others say they were creating their very own style, but could be Berlins answer to Super Wild Horse or are similar to Kleenix or Lilliput. Who cares ? Check them out. They also will play a few shows live soon:

21.09. Berlin // Listen UP Festival, Südblock 01.10. Potsdam // Black Fleck 02.10. Köln // AZ KÖLN 03.10. Aachen // AZ Aachen 04.10. Oldenburg // TBA. 05.10. Enschede // The Loch 18.10 TBA 19.10. Frankfurt a.M. // Exzess

Rainy day in august…

hey folks,

there are some new releases out. The New Flesh LP and the Isolation and Voight Kampff Tapes. To be followed by the Levitaions 7” later next week and lots of other crap any time soon in the future.

As some of you might have noticed i am the slowest label in the world. Besides working 30-60 hours the week in my regular job and booking too many tours i had wanted to start my little very own label and put out very few releases. I failed. Might was obvious from the very beginning, but here we go…..S-O-R-R-Y.

there might will be a webshop soon. Have announced it for a while.

Doesn’t really matter. You better listen to some WESTON ! stupid nice lyrics about our first world problems and the cutest tunes ever :-)

have fun & read you earlier or later or never ever. oi.

First update in years…

sorry for bein’ the slowest label ever. There are some new releases out. Please get in touch if you need any of these. There are some new demo tapes.

Check out Black Tower here: http://blacktower.bandcamp.com/

it’s Dave and Skottie from Crusades and Erin from Visitors. You could call them fantasy punk or the Blind Guardian of melody punk, ha ha. Check them out.

Then the Replica 7” is out now. Got remastered a little and sounds different to the Prank version. The Nuclear Spring record came out for their European tour, but sold out within a few weeks. Hysteria records will do a us press soon.

Will get the New Flesh LP, the Isolation tape as well as the Voight Kampff one in a few days or weeks.

The Levitations 7” and the Generacion Suicida as well as the No Sir I Won’t  / Autonomy split should be done too.

Then it looks like i’ll re-release an old German punk record soon. Could be CTCT 033. We’ll see.

What else could i tell you ? maybe nothing. Be sure to check out Hounds Of Hate, Violent Reaction and Coke Bust soon.

listening to Los VIoladores only these days. :-)

Here’s the song “b-sides” from the upcoming Levitations 7” called “partners in crime”. Will be out soon. More news to come asap. Some more new releases are coming out the next days.

Long time without any news…

because my life is busy as usual.


There are some new releases out now. You can find a few words about these in the older news:

Valley Boys - dto. 12”

Wetbrain - deeemo Tape

The Light - demo Tape

aaaand the new Low Culture 7”. This is a co-release with my buddy Julian Drunken Sailor Records:

Low Culture - Evil / Slave To You 7”
Scrappy, melodic garagepunk from Las Cruces, NM. Members of The Marked Men and Shang-A-Lang. In late 2011, when it was clear that Shang-A-Lang was coming to an end, Chris asked Sam and Cade (of Total Jock) if they wanted to start a new band. Low Culture practiced a few times as a three-piece, but a few weeks later Joe (Marked Men/Shang-A-Lang) moved back to Las Cruces and joined the band. Low Culture’s first show was in early November 2011 was at Shang-A-Lang’s last show and the band’s been moving full steam ahead ever since. With a few short regional trips and a tour of the Northeast and Canada with Iron Chic in support of their debut 7” under their belt, they’re showing no signs of slowing down. A European tour is in the works for March of 2013 as well as many US dates as their work schedules will allow. Low Culture plays catchy garage punk that while not far removed from some of the member’s previous project, Shang-A-Lang, has a lot less emphasis on riffs and blown out recordings, and more emphasis on melody and crisp (while not necessarily “over-produced”) recordings. Produced by Mark Ryan (Marked Men/Mind Spiders) in Fort Worth, mastered by Dave Williams (Crusades, Steve Adamyk Band) in Ottawa. This is their 2nd 7” after their debut lp for Dirtnap Records just came out a few weeks ago.
