Ok!! So this has taken me longer than it ever should have, but finally, dirtybird has a blog! As said on the ‘about’ page, the aim of this distro is to provide more space for womyn, queer and trans folks makin music and art.
the following is a list of things i currently have in stock and also the things coming soon. In the time between the first table and me getting my shit together to make a blog, Dirty bird was small, then got big, then sold almost everything and got small again. More orders have been done so stay tuned as more is coming.
TANK GIRL kids with guns, choco fun LP $14 – Anarcho-feminist rock’n’roll flavoured punk from Kathmandu Nepal w/ Members of Rai Ko Ris. LP comes on either green or yellow vinyl with beautiful spray painted stencil covers and poster. http://www.myspace.com/tankgirlpunk
SONGS FOR MOMS the worse it gets the better LP $14 – Sweet melodic folk punk providing the scaffolding for honest and endearing lyrics of new beginnings, friendships loved and lost and whiskey to warm the heart. LPs are on test pressings but come with cd copies of the vinyl and lyric booklets. http://www.myspace.com/songsformoms
PURPLE RHINESTONE EAGLE the great return LP $14 –“..thick buzzing riffage, powerful simple drumming, rad psychedelic leads, the sound heavy and metallic, but laced with a witchy folky vibe, which the band fully embrace, sometimes ditching the heaviness entirely and weaving lush sonic spells of acoustic guitar and dreamy vocals, only to launch right back into some stripped down dirgey, doomy creep, some lumbering metallic downtuned crunch, or some groovy wah wah laced stoner rock. Awesome! ” – Aquarius Records http://purplerhinestoneeagle1.bandcamp.com/
EUCALYPT/MAJORCA SPLIT 10″ $10 – RIP Aus screamo. This record is awesome and is also missing the inserts
SCUM SYSTEM KILL/ POODLES nuke em high 7″ $7 – “SSK [Sydney, AU] lay down a coupla slow-burning crusty ragers, while Poodles [Wellington, NZ] deliver some hi-octane brutality, replete with double kicks and demon growls” – Spin Control Records http://www.myspace.com/scummers
DEATH FIRST death first 7″ $7 – Female fronted pissed off hardcore from brooklyn. “… this isn’t just recycled ’80s hardcore chords. There are actual interesting guitar melodies, not simply fuzzed-into-nothingness by pure distortion. They serve as a great complement to Jessy’s (ex Carnal Knowledge) thoughtfully and emotionally shouted vocals.” – Punknews.org
DEATH FIRST trapped 7″ $7 – “On this their 2nd 7″ EP, DEATH FIRST sound even more intense and pummeling than before. Heavier riffs and relentless drumming set the pace for Jessy’s pissed fucking vocals. With songs ranging in subject matter from her disgust of the rise in apathy within the scene to dealing with the abusive, manipulative partners, this EP is more brutal in every way” – To Live Alive http://deathfirst.bandcamp.com/
BRAINWAVES brainwaves 7″ $6 – Melbourne based female fronted melodic rocknroll punk.
BRAINWAVES watching us judging us TAPE 4$ http://www.myspace.com/brainwavespunk
QUEENING slow protection CD $4 – Brooklyn based post punk Guitar and drum 2 peice with repetitive riffs and strong emotive vocals. http://www.myspace.com/queeningisgreat
WALRORA walrora TAPE $5 – Ex Scum System Kill, Charcoal Human, Poodles “Hailing from Australia, this is a five piece raging punk outfit with female/male counterparts. Walrora are fronted by sick female vocals and lyrics that are original and valid. They range from a nice critique of punk, Australian nationalism, and one about the Walrora itself, marine mammals with huge tusks, and the difference between the Inuit and commercial hunting. This band touches down on all the fist pumping excellence of crust punk today. SANCTUM, AFTER THE BOMBS, STORMCROW, and HELLSHOCK come to mind. Plus I got to learn about a fierce sea creature to boot. Sweet!” – Profane Existence http://www.myspace.com/walrora
SHITWEATHER shitweather TAPE $4 – Heavy dark melbourne based hardcore. Members of Circuits/majorca, Bowels. http://shitweather.bandcamp.com/
