1 - BEEHIVE & THE BARRACUDAS - IN DARK LOVE - (CD) 
SWAMI


A modern day psychedelic masterpiece. This is not pop, but it isn't difficult either, it's not exclusively for discerning ears. Plastique guitars digging into an ovulating pulse of bass and synths, fueled by a percussive commotion boy/girl tandem vocal that asks permission to penetrate. Featuring members of Rocket From The Crypt, Red Aunts, Peechees and Tanner. Produced by Gar (Hot Snakes).

3 - CPC GANGBANGS - MUTILATION NATION - (CD) 
SWAMI


CPC Gangbangs rise from ashes of garage punk architects Les Sexareenos, Daylight Lovers and Spaceshits and create a new drug, punk, weirdo, hate trip that spews from the Franco-Anglo Petri dish of Montreal. With already 5 vinyl only EPs under their belt CPC Gangbangs have solidified their status in the subterranean abyss that is the new punk underground railroad. Although their sound is celebratory and consuming it is often evil as well and full of the promise of self-destruction boosted by copious amounts of cocaine, LSD and Canadian Maple Whiskey. This sound is part Warsaw, part 13th Floor Elevators, part Flamin Groovies, part Turkish psychedelic rock and all while their feet are deeply rooted in the unrestrained attack of primal punk deconstruction. Guitars are broken, amps are on fire, drums avalanche off the stage and someone gets hurt.

8 - HEARTACHES - TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL - (CD) 
SWAMI


Propelled by the fierce beat of pro skateboarder Kristian Svitak, The Heartaches dry hump their way through 15 tracks of quintessential punk bliss. Although there are indeed cues taken from everybodys favorite bands (the saints, the ramones,the victims, the psycho surgeons, fun things, the kinks, real kids, rolling stones, elvis) the heartaches create a familiar yet lost pop innocence that could only happen in 2006. Hear timeless punk rock n roll elucidated by cro-magnon sensibilities! Hear severely inhibited chord thuggery convey passionately tuneful pop masterpieces! Hear the am sounds of the 60s stand alongside 70s classic punk and the untamed frontier of wild 50s rock n roll! Their agitated thrusting blurs the identities of these formidable confections and forces them into one congealed, pacified, pulp. In short, indeed this is one rocking record!

SWAMI


The last studio recordings by the band before they disintegrated at the end of last year. Caught on tape in Australia at Triple J for radio broadcast. De-muzzled andproduced by Greg Wales (Radio Birdman, You Am I). Bathroom shaking sounds that excel beyond the premeditated attack of the bands previous records. The Hot Snakes were built on a foundation of previous/coexisting bands that included Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt, Beehive And TheBarracudas, Tanner, Delta 72, Mule, Clikitat Ikatowi, Black Heart Procession, Pitchfork, Thingy, Burning Brides, Earthless, Sultans, among others. Before their extinction they ruled the world in tyranny eating much smaller, weaker bands. TheHot Snakes have a growing following of rabid supporters.

12 - HUSBANDS, THE - INTRODUCING THE HUSBANDS - (CD) 
SWAMI


This debut record is a crude blast of fresh air based on the DNA of early rock'n roll, RnB, soul, gospel, and fused with a feral contempt for convention. Like a '60s girl soul group backed by Crime(!). Recorded by John Reis (Rocket From The Crypt, Hot Snakes).

13 - HUSBANDS, THE - THERE'S NOTHING I'D LIKE... - (CD) 
SWAMI


Blasting outta San Francisco, the Husbands unleash their second album. No more getting slapped around, these three girls spit blood in the face of non believers and pummel groins with barbed wire bashing. 60's girl group innocence drowns in the sound of big city grime as the Husbands create a punk, garage, soul, r&b, and rock 'n' roll mutation. Recorded by Phil Manley of Trans Am and John Reis (RFTC, Hot Snakes) with guest appearances by Dan Sartain and Russel of the Mummies!

14 - METZ & SWAMI JOHN REIS - LET IT RUST/CAUGHT UP - (7") 
SWAMI


Metz teaming up with Swami John Reis is a collaboration easy to wrap your head around. When Metz found themselves on tour in San Diego with a couple of hours to spare, Swami John Reis immediately booked some studio time with the hopes of capturing this unions' glorious noise. The four of them came up with these 2 songs and now they are friends for life. The sound is reminiscent of an army of sea gulls attacking a blind sushi chef inside a burning Benihana Of Tokyo.

15 - MRS. MAGICIAN - BERMUDA - (CD) 
SWAMI


The album offers a concise collection of punk songs inspiredby the big sounds of classic 60s pop and rock nroll, with structures more associated with 70s and 80spower pop. Thomas Garcias blissed-out backwash guitartones and fuck-it fuzz attack juxtapose the bands dryand thudding foundation, creating a tropically depressedgrog. Cutting through the lacquer with a glossy shimmer,producer Swami John Reis (Drive Like Jehu, Rocket FromThe Crypt, Hot Snakes) coaxes a tightly wound, rigid backdropfor vocalist Jacob Turnblooms morose-pop delivery.Lyrically far more non-linear than their 2012 debut albumStrange Heaven, Bermuda echoes the familiar selfdeprecatinghumor that is heavily present in the bandsprior work, but focuses less on interpersonal relationships,favoring broader inspirations of alienation and melodrama.Themes of gentrification, addiction, religion and the intoxicatingaroma of modern day conspiracy theories wrestleagainst a bright and tight sonic terrain. This is the ghetto ofKokomo.Bermuda has a boozy and breezy island malaise onthe surface. But once submerged, the listener is exposed toconfusion, nihilism and the notion that even with all of ourtechnology and omnipresence of big brother, essentially weare all still very lost.

18 - MRS. MAGICIAN - STRANGE HEAVEN - (CD) 
SWAMI


Mrs. Magician hails from the pilings of various San Diego piers. Like those pilings, their sound is encrusted with salty hooks drenched in waves of reverb and barnacled, fuzz. These pop songs are massive and betray the beach shack bummer of the summer posture that these hoodad's exude. "Strange Heaven" is the band's debut album and magnifies the cacophonous lullabies of the their four previous singles. This record is for connoisseur's of fuzz, distortion, echo and reverb who prefer their noise to be tempered liberally with minor key, bubblegum and (at times)haunting melody. Recorded and produced by John Reis (of Hot Snakes, RFTC, Night Marchers, Drive Like Jehu) in the same way of the old masters in order to achieve a more musical hiss and crackle. The result is a timely and hopefully timeless artifact!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Nightlife 02. There Is No God 03. Don't Flatter Yourself 04. The Spells 05. Actual Pain 06. Heaven 07. True Blues 08. Prescription Vision 09. I'm Gonna Hangout With The Lesbians Next Door & Drop Acid 10. Hours Of The Night 11. Dead 80's 12. Videodrome 13. You Can't Be My Man

20 - NIGHT MARCHERS - ALLEZ ALLEZ - (CD) 
SWAMI


Isolated by their exquisite taste, Night Marchers exude a barbarous neglect of current trends. They resemble a group of dapper, elderly Tarzans or well-groomed, unfrozen cavemen detached from todays nightclub society; their actions are just as confusing and alien to us as we to them. This must be taken into account when listening to the bands unconventional wail or observing them rub their long dicks on doorknobs. Allez Allez is frantic protest rock n roll against being unfrozen, against being lured from the jungle by poontang on a string. They know they can never go back so they relinquish to the insulation of manic shredding and good times. Night Marchers consist of three quarters of Hot Snakes-John Reis (Rocket From the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Sultans), Gar Wood (Beehive and the Barracudas, Tanner) and Jason Sinclair (Delta 72, Mule, Bardo Pond)-accompanied by Thomas Kitsos (previously of Montreal rock n roll destructionists CPC Gangbangs). They sound remotely like the combination of the aforementioned acts. This is their second record..

TRACKLISTING: 01. Tropical Depression 02. Loud Dumb And Mean 03. All Hits 04. Thar She Blows 05. Pain 06. 2 Guitars Sing 07. (wasting Away In) Javalinaville 08. Big In Germany 09. I Wear The Horns 10. Ned Lud 11. Roll On 12. Fisting The Fan Base

23 - SWAMI JOHN REIS AND THE BLIND SHAKE - MODERN SURF CLASSICS - (LP) 
SWAMI


Death by kowabunga bunga! Swami John Reis and the Blind Shake pay tribute to the classic surf and rock n roll instrumentals of the 1960s and update the genre for today's more extreme, modern surfer. 13 original, modern surf compositions create this tidal wave of booming tom toms, skronking saxophones and a chaotic surge of guitars. Let this south swell topple you and may you be pinned in its undertow of reverb. Swami John Reis uses a similar aggro guitar approach as his playing in Hot Snakes and Night Marchers but allows the influences of Omar Khorshid, The Ventures, Link Wray, Randy Holdens Fender IV and many other forgotten, instro combos rise to the surface for air. Joining Swami is Minneapolis The Blind Shake (Goner Records, Castle Face). The Blind Shake is a bombastic, power trio consisting of guitar, baritone guitar and drums and whose sound can be described as "muscular psych punk". This collaboration generates a symphonic wall of twang and amplifies a cinematic sense of drama and tension with the addition of saxophone, doumbek, piano, riq, vibraphone and piano. To capture the essence of this vibe, some of the initial tracking of this material was recorded under Crystal Pier (San Diego) by Ben Moore who utilized a mobile recording VW van. Because of the intense rhythmic velocity achieved on many of these tracks, this record can also be recommended to those interested in BMX, roller skateboarding, snowboarding/toboggan, fighting, yoga, car racing, military and most other water activities (with the exception of SUP).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sea Saw 02. Dune Rider 03. Brown Room 04. Kooks On The Face 05. Dry Suit 06. Poseidon's Tears 07. Beach Leech 08. Zulu As Kono 09. The Lonely Sea Sweeper 10. Wet Greek 11. Hang 11 12. Over The Falls 13. Sets Of Fire

25 - VARIOUS - HARDCORE MATINEE - (LP) 
SWAMI


"Hardcore Matinee is an ode to the budget, punk rock/hardcore compilations that proved to be informative in the early years of Swami Records head honcho, overlord, John Reis. Some of these budget, compilation LPs were highly disposable, LPs that shunned the concept of quality favoring instead the quantity of bands it included. 40, 50 sometimes up to 60 unknown groups were crammed onto these records that crackled and popped with tinny sound and infantile graphics. Over time, this cut-rate aesthetic actually weathered quite well. Call it nostalgia or perhaps it is a testament to how truly ugly the world has become, but some of these records can now be enjoyed as curious oddities of a bygone era. So, it was with this inspiration that Hardcore Matinee was assembled. Hardcore Matinee features 22 of San Diegos most exciting groups and covers the wide range of current punk music. From well-established bands such as Hot Snakes (with their first new recording since 2004 and featuring both drummers on the same recording), Pinback (their final recording before disbanding and then reforming) and Gary Wilson (off his recent collaboration with The Roots) to up and coming bands Octagrape (ex-Trumans Water), Death Eyes (Hardcore supergroup with ex- Rats Eyes and ex-Death Crisis) and Schizophonics, this records varied styling is a jarring ride. The Swami Records harem is represented by the reformation of The Sultans (first recording since 2003), Beehive and The Barracudas (first new recordings since 2008), Mrs. Magician (an outtake from their soon to be released second album Bermuda) and The Heartaches (first new recording since their Too Cool For School LP). Other artists include The Loons (featuring Mike Stax of Ugly Things), Rob Crow, Teenage Burritos (Burger Records), Plateaus (Art Fag Records), Creepy Creeps (Dionysus Records), The Widows (Route 44 Records), Ale Mania (Volar Records), Ghetto Blaster (ex- Fishwife and The Let Downs), WHA (ex-Tourettes Lautrec) The Shake Before Us and The Lumps (both on Tower Bar Records) and the debut of The Soaks. In order to vaguely adhere to the inspired aesthetic, it was important to keep the music fresh and moving quickly. All of the bands recorded new, unreleased material and attempted to keep their contribution as brief as possible. Hardcore Matinee showcases a cross section of some of Swami Records favorite, current San Diego noise and presents them in a blurred collection high on energy and momentum. The result is a record that plays as a whole and is greater than the sum of its parts. Another important component of this record is to contribute to keeping the spirit of regional punk rock compilations alive for future generations. As a result, proceeds from Hardcore Matinee will be donated to The Museum School in San Diego and be used exclusively for their music department. The Museum School is a tuition-free, public charter school that serves students from all over San Diego in Kindergarten through 8th grade.Because I realize your time is valuable, for your convenience I am including a brief description of the specific, PUNK sub-genre of each track on the record.

Vintage Piss is the baby whose seed was planted on the 2003 Rocket From The Crypt US tour, which also paired some members of the band with legendary 1970s New York outta control rock n roller Sonny Vincent. After the Swami release of Vincents previous band Testors Complete Discography, Speedo (John Reis), Ruby Mars (Mario Rubalcaba) and The Notorious ND (Andy Stamets) served as the mans backing band and slashed through his Testors repertoire resulting in a primo barrage of 1970s neo-proto-punk. After one particularly meaty performance in Chicago amidst high fives and ass slaps signifying a job well done, the inspiration to write and record new songs struck. Back in San Diego, late 2003, the group incubated in Drag Racist Studio (where Rocket From The Crypt recorded Live From Camp X-Ray and Hot Snakes Suicide Invoice). They employed a steam-of-consciousness approach to making noise by recording songs and ideas live in the studio without rehearsal. With Vincents voice and blazing, James Williamson-esque Les Paul attack leading the way, the band followed him into the punk abyss, emerging with a record that is both Sonny Vincent and Rocket From The Crypt. Unfortunately, the studio and Swami Records became buried by transition. It was to be the last thing recorded at Drag Racist before the studio shut its doors. The recording lay dormant, unmixed and unfinished. With the 2013 reformation of Rocket From the Crypt and the continued rerelease of Sonny Vincent and Testors material, a rekindled interest in the lost artifact of rock n roll led Swami to revisit these masters eleven years later. Tapes in various state of degradation were baked and restored to playability, resulting in the unearthing of a true forgotten gem. Produced and recorded by John Reis, mixed by Ben Moore, mastered by Dave Gardner at Magneto Mastering and featuring artwork by savage visionary Chris WeThreeClub, Vintage Piss is essential for fans of Rocket From The Crypt, Sonny Vincent, Testors and those attracted to the maverick, Cro-Magnon spirit of punk rocks beginnings..
