Artist: AXEMEN
Title: Sac Tap Nut Jam
Format: LP
Label: Spacecase
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Spacecase Records is pleased to release Sac Tap Nut Jam-the first new AXEMEN full length in twenty-one years. Originally from Christchurch, New Zealand, The Axemen formed in 1983. Initial Axemen releases came out on member STEVE MCCABEs cassette label, Sleek Bott. The Axemen signed to Flying Nun in the mid 80s, releasing the labels first double album, Three Virgins (1986). Like The Swell Maps, The Axemen sound is hard to define-Three Virgins runs the gamut, from country to punk to avant-garde. The Axemen released their second Flying Nun record Derry Legend in 1987. The band put out further cassettes on Sleek Bott, notably Scary (Part III) and Three Rooms (An Elton John Tribute Album), before going on hiatus in the early 90s. In 2009, The Axemen caught their second wind thanks to Tom Lax at Siltbreeze who reissued the bands cassette-only releases Big Cheap Motel and Scary (Part III). The Axemen toured the United States with Times New Viking the same year. In 2011 The Axemen visited Australia and put out a tour 7"- a label split between McCabes Sleek Bott and the late Brendon Annesleys Negative Guest List Records. Siltbreeze came through again that year, reissuing Three Virgins on vinyl (original pressings were going for well over fifty dollars). Sac Tap Nut Jam finds Steve McCabe and STU KAWOWSKI reuniting with DRAGAN STOJANOVIC (who played on 1987s Derry Legend); rounding out the lineup is WILLIAM DAYMOND. Recorded in early 2013 in Wellington and Taita, Lower Hutt, Sac Tap Nut Jam-like all Axemen releases-defies easy categorization. Theres The Beatles/Dylan pop of Stojanovics "These Days"; McCabes post punk-influenced "Doctors on Speed Dial"; Steve McCabes inimitable voice and stream-of-consciousness lyric writing comes to the forefront on "Google That Girl." Edition of 500 copies." - Spacecase.

Artist: ELECTRIC BLOOD
Title: Single 2011
Format: 7"
Label: Spacecase
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"ELECTRIC BLOOD was ROBERT SCOTTs (THE CLEAN and THE BATS) first band. Formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1977, the group revolved around Mr. Scott and his brother ANDREW. According to Robert, Electric Blood was a couple of musicians (Robert and Andrew) "playing along with a few guys who were living up the road; they were sort of non-musicians. It was a band that really evolved around me learning how to write songs and trying to get these other guys to join in and make a band of some kind." Electric Blood played sporadically throughout most of the 80s. Robert would release the bands material through his Every Secret Thing cassette label; the albums were typically recorded over the course of a day at a Dunedin rehearsal space. (In 1994 the American label Beehive Rebellion reissued Electric Blood s 1984 cassette Electric Easter on CD. Single 2011 is the first Electric Blood vinyl release). "Pennsylvania" first appeared on the 1982 cassette Ohio; "Window Sill," "Match," and "Bumble Bee" appeared on Electric Easter. Although the band started from humble beginnings, Electric Blood would eventually incorporate multi-instrumentalist ALASTAIR GALBRAITH on some of their later recordings, and one Electric Blood track ("Earwig") eventually turned up on an early Bats EP. Single 2011 showcases a young Robert Scott developing his skills as a songwriter, and will be of particular interest to fans of Kiwi pop." -Spacecase
