Artist: INSTANT AUTOMATONS, THE
Title: Sincerely Making A Noise
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Belgium
Price: $22.00
"Instant Automatons were leading figures in the largely cassette-based U.K. Bad Music scene (a British DIY movement whose adherents made their music available on cassette, for free) of the late 70s. Between 1977 and 1982, using a bedroom full of homemade gear plus some conventional instrumentation, core members Protag (later of Alternative TV, Blyth Power and Zounds) and Mark Lancaster ("somewhere between Cooper Clarke and Mark E. Smith") forged a warped hybrid of traditional song craft and lo-fi primitive post punk. Although cassettes were the bands native medium, they also appeared on several vinyl releases, including their own EP and various compilations featuring similar weirdos. For fans of the Messthetics compilations (Hyped to Death released the Another Wasted Sunday Afternoon compilation CD), Urinals, Homosexuals. Curated by Lancaster, Sincerely Making A Noise dusts off curiosities from the Instant Automatons archives (Peter Paints His Fence EP, Angst In My Pants EP, No Platform For Heels LP, Love Not Devotion LP, Tape Transport cassette). Co-released by Beat Generation and B.F.E. Records. First time ever that most of the songs appear on a vinyl release. Compilation from lost cassette releases. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 300." - Beat Generation.

Artist: LOS VIOLADORES
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $21.00
"Los Violadores ("The Rapists") were formed after Los Testiculos, a seminal band from the Argentinean punk scene, stopped playing. Stuka on bass and voice, Harry B on guitar, and Sergio Gramatica: this was the bands first line-up. They started playing live in 1980 at small and selected clubs. People quickly paid attention to these rude boys, who played a chaotic brand of rock n roll. Due to the dictatorship in Argentina, police often showed up to cancel shows. Censorship enforced by the dictatorship forced them to use the name Los Voladores ("The Rockets") at some of their first gigs. They had two major enemies: the military regime and the hippies. Yes, the hippies. Los Violadores were always in a fight with the usual old legends from the 70s, such as Seru Giran, Leon Gieco, and Spinetta Jade. In 1983 they recorded their first LP, one of the hardest, loudest, and dirtiest album ever recorded in Argentina. In this recording the band had their classic line-up: Pil Trafa on vocals, Stuka playing guitar, Robert "Polaco" Zelazeck on bass, and Sergio Gramatica on drums. Titles such as "Mirando la Guerra por TV," "Guerra total," "Mujeres Vengan a Mí," and "Viejos Pateticos" (a song covered by the American band Los Crudos) were aimed like spit at the face of the military regime, the cops, and society generally. After lots of horrible bootlegs, Beat Generation is proud to announce the first ever official re-release of this classic album, with the original artwork and inserts. Absolutely a must have for everyone into South American and global punk. Limited to 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl. Comes with the original cover and lyrics insert." - Beat Generation.

Artist: PERFORMING FERRET BAND
Title: Performing Ferret Band
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $22.00
"Alehop! and Beat Generation present a reissue of Performing Ferret Bands self-titled album, originally released in 1981. Hailing from Maidstone (Kent), Performing Ferret Band got together in 1978 and with their amateur take on music, they wrote a small but great chapter of the emergence born out of punk, when the proliferation of small labels and self-releases invaded the record shops and created a scene which developed one of the golden and most creative periods of music, despite the participants technical limitations. Later based in Manchester and inspired by comedians such as Monty Python and musicians like Captain Beefheart, The Velvet Underground, or The Fall, the Ferrets developed a personal style very close to Television Personalities, Swell Maps, or The Desperate Bicycles, all bands of questionable virtuosity. That didnt stop the Ferrets from releasing two cassettes, a 7", and an LP during their short life until 1982. Their only LP, originally released in 1981 on the bands own Pig Production label as a 300-copies pressing, is reissued here in a limited edition. Its a compendium of absurdity, genius, humor, and that naive spirit which makes humanity more believable. Includes an insert with the bands story, photos, and memorabilia; Edition of 500." - Beat Generation.

Artist: PURE HELL
Title: Noise Addiction
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $22.00
2017 repress. "Beat Generation presents a reissue of Pure Hell sole full-length album, recorded in 1978 but not released until 2006. In 1974, on the streets of Philadelphia, a band unlike any other was formed. They called themselves Pretty Poison. They had a sound so ahead of its time that the music industry was not yet ready for it. They coupled the punk sound of the New York bands of the time with a harder, faster heavy metal edge unheard before. Their unique sound was a result of Kenny Gordons berserk choreography and Preston Morriss needling guitar riffs, while Steel and Spider added synchronized barrage with no nonsense execution to the arsenal. Inspired by the famous fuel-altered dragster, they changed their name to Pure Hell in 1975. Soon after, they moved to New York City where they played with bands like the New York Dolls, Sid Vicious, Wayne County and the Electric Chairs, The Dead Boys, The Stimulators, Richard Hell, The Germs, The Nuns, The Cramps and more. In 1978 Pure Hell headlined a tour of the UK, with bands like the UK Subs, Wilko Johnson, Vermilion & the Aces and more opening for them. While in the UK, their only original record was released. It was a single released by their manager Curtis Knight on his label, Golden Sphinx Records. The songs on the single were "These Boots Were Made for Walking" and "No Rules." The single charted in the top 40 charts in the UK. During the same year, a full length album was recorded but was never released. It did not surface again for 28 years. Limited edition of 500 copies." - Beat Generation.

Title: Rodrigo D. No Futuro
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $22.00
“Medellín, Colombia. Mid-1980s. The city was immersed in an everyday war ritual. Police, narcs, gangs ruled the streets without fear of death. Young people had very few chances to live free from this stuff, so most of them fell into this war against everything, as the easy thing to do. A massive exodus from small villages filled cities with people to deceive. It was in the midst of this absolute chaos and destruction that the first punk and metal bands of the region started to try to make something different. Everything was against them -- society, family, police, government. Handmade guitars, amplifiers, drums -- anything would work. Pestes,Mutantex, P-Ne, Amén, Ekrion, Agressor, Parabellum, Blasfemia,Profanación, Dexkoncierto, and Mierda appeared in the city and built this scene. Rodrigo D. No Futuro is a 1990 film with these same bands, and this is the first vinyl reissue of its soundtrack -- original copies are expensive as hell. Replica cover and insert with lots of info. 180-gram vinyl. Limited to 500 copies.” - Beat Generation.

Title: Luchando por el Metal
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $20.00
"It was 1979, during the Argentine dictatorship, when Ricardo Iorio and Ricardo Moreno decided to start a heavy rock band called Comunion Humana. Two months later some tracks were arranged and Gerardo Osemberg joined ´em as drummer. Inspired by fast engines and the intensity of their playing, the band took V8 as their moniker. During 1980-1982 they played lots of shows that were filled with dramatic incidents: disturbances, arrests, detentions, and event deaths. For these reasons the image of the band was totally conditioned and people started to hate them. In 1982 they recorded their legendary demo-tape and started to receive more attention from others countries. They played lots of gigs, some totally sold out and others empty because crowds hated their rock image and attitude. In 1983 they recorded their debut album Luchando por el Metal ("Fighting for the Metal") with their classic line-up: Ricardo Iorio on bass, Osvaldo Civile on guitar, Alberto Zarmarbide on vocals, and Gustavo Rowek on drums. Before disbanding in 1987 they recorded more albums and their status grew, making them a reference and inspiration for many metal heads all around the world. V8 were chased, ill-treated, and despised for their social lyrics and also for the incidents that occurred at every show. As we mentioned before, there was a tragedy at one show in Estadio Platense, where fighting with the police resulted in deaths. Beat Generation is more than proud to release this record officially for the first time, a total cult piece of South American metal: a record perfect for the times we are living in now. 180 gram vinyl, limited to 500 copies. Comes in original cover with lyrics insert." -Beat Generation.

Title: Un Paso Más en la Batalla
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $22.00
"180-gram vinyl; limited to 500 copies. Between August and September of 1984, the Argentine band V8 entered the studio to record their much-anticipated follow-up to their mighty debut, Luchando por el Metal, the first metal album released in Argentina. This second album was the consecration for the band; their fans were already thousands but they got more and more recognition with this new LP. The bands reputation grew, partly by virtue of their lyrics, which reflected the dictatorship of the time and the pain and frustration of the whole society, and partly due to their commitment to play everywhere they could. The new songs were still fast and direct, and a little better played than the previous albums, so this album helped them to gain a cult status in their country and the rest of the metal world. This is the first vinyl reissue of this seminal album of South American metal. Replica cover art and insert." - Beat Generation.
