Canada’s largest city — Toronto was fertile ground for a burgeoning new hardcore scene taking root in the early ‘80s with YYY and Direct Action leading the way. Surrounding suburbs soon followed and a group of young skate-punks named Sudden Impact emerged to become one of the greatest of all. Revered as a crown jewel of early TOHC, this carefully remastered 10 song debut demo is on vinyl for the very first time. Fast and furious hardcore skate punk from 1984! Includes a generous 16 page booklet full of photos, art, and their story all housed in a deluxe close pocket sleeve. 500 copies.
Pink Steel were a staple of the Victoria BC music scene 1979-83, playing alongside the Infamous Scientists, Neos, Nomeansno and more. Their sound was powerful, earnest and original punk rock unlike other groups — they had seven members and showed great dexterity with varied compositions. This carefully remastered mega-long EP contains all 6 songs from their two 7”s reissued for the first time since 1981. Power-pop, rocker, punk — all packed with hooks, melody, and high energy! Includes a generous 16 page booklet full of photos and their story all housed in a deluxe close pocket sleeve. 500 copies.
Vancouver mod punks worshipping the Buzzcocks! Initially gigging as The Zoo back in 1979, they changed their name to Culture Shock and issued one solemn 7” in 1983, now one of the rarest in Canadian punk history. This carefully remastered deluxe EP contains their entire 6 song Mushroom Studio session issued for the first time on vinyl. Hearftelt melodic punk rock with an endearing underlying naïveté. Includes a detailed 8 page booklet with rare photos and their story all housed in a deluxe close pocket sleeve. 500 copies.
