Artist: AFFLICTED MAN
Title: Im Off Me Ead
Format: LP
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Limited repress. "Im Off Me Ead is DIY psych punk (or "Hippy Punk" as STEVE HALL calls it) at its finest, but dont just take my word for it. Heavyweight record aficionados such as Henry Rollins, Byron Coley, Tom Lax, Doug Mosurock, and Geoffrey Weiss are BIG fans... ""Afflicted Mans style could best described at stock-in-trade Brit DIY w/an almost Street Level sortve quality to it...Too freaked out for punks, too punked out for freaks...mustve felt like a rusty safety pin stuck straight through the heart of whatever DIY fanbase Hall had acquired. And for all the Pink Fairies or Hawkwind types that mighta come across it, it was too primitive & animalistic for their quid."-Siltblog. We here at Permanent absolutely love this record and are incomprehensibly honored to be the label reissuing it on vinyl for the first time ever. Its been fully licensed by Steve Hall himself and painstakingly remastered by the total pros at Penguin Recording in Eagle Rock. The jacket artwork was graciously reconstituted and touched-up by Bill "Trouble In Mind" Roe. The full-color Im Off Me Ead inner sleeve contains a bunch of unseen AFFLICTED MAN photos, an unpublished interview with Steve Hall and a fully authorized reprint of Chris Stiglianos article from Forced Exposure #9 (Winter 1986)." -Permanent.

Artist: AFFLICTED MAN
Title: Get Stoned Ezy
Format: LP
Label: Rock Toilet
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"An exact reproduction of this early 80s scuzz pounder, first issued in the UK in early 1982. AFFLICTED MAN was the name acid-punk STEVE HALL chose to finalize his mark in history before his complete disappearance. Prior records documented some art-damaged UK DIY punk, but here he fully extended into a pre-High Rise no-fi blare of incredible proportions. Three long tracks."

Artist: AFFLICTED MAN
Title: Complete Recordings
Format: Double CD
Label: Senseless Whale
Country: Australia
Price: $16.00
"Too freaked out for punks and too punked out for freaks, STEVE HALL stalked the nascent British Punk/DIY scene under the guise of AFFLICTED (later AFFLICTED MAN)throughout the early 80s to the interest of almost no one. Hiding in plain sight, Hall unleashed a string of 7-inches and LPs that evoked a singular and unique take on the punk sneer made fashionable by the Sex Pistols and their minion. Primitively blending elements of psychedelia and dub over his feral, chainsaw approach, Afflicted Man unleashed a miasma of tripped out, fuzzy aggro thrashers that would eventually climax into a masterpiece of pedal stomping carnage-the unimpeachable Get Stoned Ezy LP-the likes of which are only now being fully digested. Easily one of the UKs strangest and ignored DIY punk bands. This collection includes the entire output; all three mega rare 7-inches plus the hard to find LPs The Afflicted Mans Musical Bag, Im Off Me Head, and the aforementioned Get Stoned Ezy. Complete Recordings is the type of release to make even the most knowledgeable of humbugs sit up and take notice. Essential in every way." - Senseless Whale. Highly recommended!
