Artist: A PASSING FANCY
Title: Im Losing Tonight
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"One of the all-time great Toronto singles, this actually had decent local chart success in early 67. The hits a high-energy slice of quick-paced freakbeat elevated to greatness by an absolutely stinging lead guitar attack, while the eponymous flipside delivers an insistent mid-tempo jangle built around a haunting chorus. Utterly essential for those who dig classic mid-60s garage sounds. Remastered with a brand new picture sleeve." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: BATORS DEAD BOYS, STIV
Title: Last Stand 1980
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"When erstwhile Dead Boys Stiv Bators and Jimmy Zero decided to give it another shot with a summer 1980 US tour, they assembled a pretty crack backing band-- George Cabaniss (Hammer Damage) on guitar, Frank Secich (Blue Ash) on bass and David Quinton (Mods, Arson) on drums-- and proceeded to take it on the road. Over thirty years later, Quinton has remastered the original excellent-quality board tapes from three of the shows to come up with incendiary takes on all-time American punk rock monsters Son Of Sam, Third Generation Nation and All This And More. 100% authorized release with four-page insert featuring extensive liners and unseen pictures." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: BENT WIND
Title: Sacred Cows
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Bent Winds 1970 LP Sussex is perhaps the rarest Canadian record there is, but before dropping that massive set of heavy psych, they debuted with a small-run 45 that hit hard with a pair of considerably more straight-forward garage psych rockers. Released on the tiny local Trend label in 1969, this is a very good single that marks the transition from mid-60s garage to the heavier rock to come. New sleeve, made with full cooperation of the band." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: BENT WIND
Title: Sussex
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $23.00
"The Holy Grail of Canadian rock, this raw, murky slab of heavy psych was released by local indie label Trend in autumn 1970 and immediately sank without a trace. Over the decades, however, obsessive fans and collectors of the eras unsung greats gradually came to recognize the obscure Toronto bands genius, the now impossible-to-find original LP eventually trading hands for $5000+ plus in the rare vinyl market. After years of bootlegs, compact discs and pricey European pressings, this mythical Canadian LP is finally available at home in its intended format for the first time in 44 years." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: BUREAUCRATS, THE
Title: Feel the Pain/Grown Up Age
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"The Bureaucrats only released one 45 and a couple comp tracks during their short career, but this 1980 single is one of the very best-- and rarest-- of all Canadian punk records. Two songs here, recorded in December 1979, and each is a bright star in the early punk/pop pantheon, both surging, memorable tunes delivered with loads of energy and angst. A Canadian counterpart to The Jam, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Clash etc, and genuinely that good. In pocket sleeve with new insert." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: COCKNEY REJECTS
Title: Flares n Slippers
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Released on Small Wonder in 1979, this unassuming slab signaled the emergence of a new genre, kickstarting both the Rejects career and the entire oi movement. Debuting with three tracks of quick, raw and exuberant punk rock clearly inspired by the likes of Cock Sparrer, UK Subs and Sham 69, Cockney Rejects went on to sign with EMI and write a number of all time classics, but this is where it all started. High-quality authorized reissue, taken from the masters and packaged in full-color jacket." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: HACKAMORE BRICK
Title: Oh! Those Sweet Bananas
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Hackamore Bricks sole 1970 LP on Kama Sutra remains a much-desired artifact of its era, a primordial expression of seminal proto-punk and early Velvets worship. While there are several great tracks on the LP, its long been my opinion that Oh! Those Sweet Bananas was criminally over-looked and should really have been a 45 from the start. One of the great lost songs of the period, its a quick, catchy and instantly addictive burst of NYC garage punk pop at the dawn of the 70s. The flip is a beautiful and memorable slow-burner, and a different take to that on the LP. A slight change of pace for Ugly Pop, but a long-time favorite that anyone with good taste will appreciate. New picture sleeve, one-time-only pressing of 500 copies." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: P.I.G.Z.
Title: Bloody Belgium EP
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"One of the crown jewels of worldwide first-wave punk, this Belgian bands sole release really is as good as it gets. All three songs here are excellent but Bloody Belgium and Stooges are stone classics. Unavailable since it was released in 1978, with original copies fetching up to four figures, and finally back in print through cooperation with the band. Includes booklet with interview, clippings and unseen photos!" - Ugly Pop.

Artist: PACK
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $22.00
"Nobody can tell us that this 1978 German monster isnt one of the best footlongs of the era, a gnarly slab of pure 70s punk rock recorded in an abandoned WW2 bunker with two mics in one session. Formed by Amon Duul 2s Joerg Evers after the 77 punk explosion inspired him to return to his raw rocknroll roots, Pack bash out hit after hit, killer songs delivered with snarl, style and non-stop energy. Essential first generation punk, remastered with extensive liner notes and vintage photos! One-time press of 1000 copies only." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: PF COMMANDO
Title: Manipulerade Mongon
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $23.00
"Self-released in 1979 by one of Swedens most notorious bands, this monster debut was the countrys first punk LP, packing in 15 tracks of pure three-chord bash at its most primal and aggressive. Vocals are alternately barked and snarled, guitars slash and buzz, the rhythm section thrashes along maniacally-- no pop, no art, just PUNK! Ugly Pop is very pleased to be making this hard-to-find slab available again in its first legitimate vinyl pressing since 1979, with all new insert." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: POINTED STICKS
Title: What Do You Want Me To Do?
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"These early Vancouver punks released some pretty great records over their short career, but this 1978 debut will probably remain the classic 45 theyll be best known for. Nothing fancy, art-damaged or vicious here, just two near-perfect blasts of loud, snappy, melodic punk thats inspired countless bands since. Certainly not the rarest or most obscure record, but one that deserves to be readily available to anyone with a taste for quality punk rock singles. Color pocket sleeve." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: REAL KIDS, THE
Title: Shake...Outta Control
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $23.00
"Its been 38 years since Bostons REAL KIDS debuted with the finest rocknroll record ever committed to tape, and now theyre back with a long-awaited new full-length on legendary hometown label Ace Of Hearts and Canadas Ugly Pop. Of course, long time fans can always be excused some apprehension when a band of this vintage presents new material so deep into their career, but theres no cause to fret here. Shake...Outta Control is a fantastic return to form, a strong set of powerful, memorable and engaging songs that do absolute justice to this bands legacy. While some bands lose track of their own soul in forced attempts at progression, and others risk diminishing returns by simply treading the water of their earlier work, 2014 finds the Real Kids negotiating this path beautifully. Boasting both the raw energy and tough hooks of 1977 and the matured chops and expanded palette of frontman John Felices Nothing Pretty LP, the dozen songs on this disc settle easily among the bands best work. Producer Rick Harte guides with an expert hand, integrating Hammond organ and pedal steel seamlessly into a full yet suitably unpolished whole, and the songs run the gamut from quieter but intense ballads like a definitive new Common At Noon and a sublime take on Jonathan Richmans Fly Into The Mystery to fast-paced rockers like All Night Boppin (powered along by highly caffeinated barroom piano) and of course the instant classic title track, a high-energy gem anchored by the sort of classic Boston punk rocknroll riff that made this bands name. Culminating in an incendiary Who Needs You?, this is a genuine Real Kids record that will thrill new fans and old alike. Superbly mastered at New Yorks renowned Sterling Sound, Shake...Outta Control is unleashed this month on Ace Of Hearts as a twelve-track CD, with a ten-song LP (cut 100% analog direct from tape and pressed on 180G vinyl) to follow on Ugly Pop." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: THORS HAMMER
Title: If You Knew: Icelandic Punk & Beat 65-67
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $23.00
"Best known to garage enthusiasts for My Life, their stellar contribution to the second Nuggets box, Thors Hammer was also responsible for an incredibly scarce 1966 EP that is easily among the toughest records of the era. Ugly Pop now presents this long-overdue LP, compiling 14 mid 60s nuggets-- the above mentioned monsters included-- from these Icelandic garage legends, who seasoned their northern beat with some of the rawest, wildest fuzzpunk heard anywhere. Fully authorised high quality pressing licensed from SENA (Iceland)." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: UGLY, THE
Title: Off the Hook/Screw the System
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"This storied first-wave Toronto punk outfit have been sadly under-represented on vinyl. Apart from a couple of live comp tracks, their sole 70s waxing was a misguided attempt at a power pop hit single -- not a completely miserable 45, but hardly suggesting the raw power they were capable of. A 90s CD collected their incendiary studio recordings, proving true their live reputation as a rough, hard-edged punk outfit, but that material is tied up by bad contracts and will probably never see legit vinyl release. Now The Ugly are back; while legendary local hooligan and original frontman Mike Nightmare passed away in the 90s, new vocalist Greg Dick (of contemporaries The Dream Dates) is about as capable and credible as they come, and the veteran Ugly trio of drummer Tony Torcher, bassist Screamin Sam Ferrara (both of The Viletones) and guitarist Steve Koch (also of the Demics) are determined to set the record straight. This isnt the usual castrated reunion schtick, either -- the new 45 is as tough as they ever been, swaggering through the topsides punkified early Stones in classic fashion but turning up the aggression on the 1978-vintage flipside, a raw, mean and quick-paced hard punk blast with a grinding guitar recalling early Black Flag or Subhumans. One time pressing of 480 only in swank pocket sleeve with insert, produced by Don Pyle (Crash Kills Five) and cut loud by Peter Moore for maximum impact. No colour vinyl or gimmick versions." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: X
Title: X-Aspirations
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $23.00
"The Sydney bands 1979 debut is one of the all-time great Australian records, a devastatingly tough yet diverse album featuring 14 tracks of superb punk rock, equal parts wiry tension and savage release. This antipodean classic has fallen out of print again in recent years but should always be available, so Ugly Pop is pleased to announce that well be reissuing it with new insert and unseen photos." - Ugly Pop.
SOLD OUT

Artist: X
Title: X-Spurts: The 1977 Recordings
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $23.00
"Before their legendary debut LP, X recorded a 1977 demo session that is a brilliant snapshot of the period, and a treasure for anyone with an interest in world-wide first wave punk. Ten tracks, perfect raw/full recording, seething with desperation and urgency, this is the sound of early AC/DC meets Pink Flag with everything cranked. 37 years on, Ugly Pop presents the first ever vinyl appearance of this seminal document." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: ZOOM
Title: Sweet Desperation
Format: LP
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $22.00
"Bored of cover bands and Torontos stagnant bar scene, Chris Haight and John Hamilton formed Zoom in 1976, inspired by such pre-punk touchstones as the Velvet Underground, Roxy Music, Bowie and Sparks. The band quickly set to gigging locally, but were soon caught up in the punk scene that exploded to life around them. An obscure but seminal 1977 45 -- arguably Torontos first punk record-- was their sole release before the band dissolved as Haight joined the Viletones and Hamilton began drumming for the Diodes. Despite their duties in two of Canadas leading punk bands, however, the pair didnt want great songs like “Schoolgirl Hitch Hiker,” “My Babys Got No Brains” and “They Only Come Out At Night” to go undocumented, so they entered the studio in 1978 to get this stuff on tape. Produced by Bob Segarini and BB Gabor, and with musical contributions from members of The Ugly, The B-Girls and The Curse, the session captured a pretty special time in Toronto music history. It seems especially poignant that it would then remain unheard for decades. In 2014, Hamilton, who had gone on to an illustrious career of his own but had never entirely forgotten Zoom, located the tapes and had them professionally baked and restored. A trove of photographs, flyers and graphics was similarly uncovered, and now Ugly Pop is very pleased to announce a 13-track LP." - Ugly Pop.
