(No Way Records)
B-movies have been a staple of punk going all the way back to the genre’s roots in rockabilly and garage. There are songs littering the landscape about ghouls, goblins, slashers, midnight marauders, highwaymen, flying saucers, et al. The Groovie Ghoulies and the Misfits made careers out of wring punk songs about horror movies, and now we’ve got Night Birds and their contribution, the Midnight Movies EP.
OMGWTFBBQ!!!! No Way Records repressed Chronic Sick’s classic self-titled 7-inch EP (aka the “Reagan Bands” single), as well as their 12-inch EP Cutest Band In Hardcore. Now, you can have a copy of some of the more essential lost classics of hardcore in your hands without having to pay hundreds of dollars for an original (even the bootlegs went for 50 or 60 bucks).
Of course, you’ve been able to download them via Killed By Death’s website for a couple years now. Take a listen right effing now to the self-titled EP and Cutest Band In Hardcore and then go buy them from the No Way webstore.
Give them some time to get it to you, however:
When ordering, remember we are a 2 person operation that is run while our record store is open. We get stuff done as FAST as we can, but PLEASE give your order at least 2 weeks to ship before you email us. We’re swamped.
And think, if you spend money with No Way, then they’ll make money and put out that new Night Birds EP, Midnight Movies, that much sooner.
