Greetings, and welcome to the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us!

Greetings, and welcome to the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is the weekly* column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. Kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

Check out the video edition of this week’s Record Radar, presented by our friends at Punk Rock Radar:

The almighty Against All Authority‘s 1998 album All Fall Down is being reissued in honor of its 25th anniversary. I haven’t seen any official announcement from the band, but it’s available to pre-order on red colored vinyl with a listed release date of October 27th. Get it here and save 10% with code THANKS10.

Another record turning 25 this year is Good Riddance‘s Ballads from the Revolution. Fat Wreck has repressed the album on yellow w/ blue splatter colored vinyl and the same silver accents on the cover art as their other 25th Anniversary reissues. Get it here.

And that’s not the only anniversary reissue from Fat this week, because apparently The FlatlinersDead Language was released a decade ago. Time flies! Fat has a variant exclusive to their webstore, and Dine Alone Records has additional colors on their store as well.

And because you can never have enough Fat Wreck releases on the Record Radar, here’s another one! The label has some copies of No Use For A Name‘s Incognito on clear colored vinyl up on their store; these are leftovers from the No Use Black Box that was released last year. So if you somehow missed out on the box set or just want a copy of this specific record, you’re in luck!

Keeping with this week’s theme of anniversary reissues, Social Distortion‘s debut album Mommy’s Little Monster is getting a 40th anniversary reissue. There are a handful of retailer exclusive color variants for this one, including Brooklyn Vegan (500 copies, grey), Craft Recordings (black & white marble), and a clear smoke variant you can find at most independent record stores, to name a few.

Here’s a cool Replacements tribute album featuring Mikey Erg, Timeshares, Jon Snodgrass, Sammy Kay and a bunch of other cool people/bands. It comes out October 27th on Creep Records; you can get it on three color variants here.

Newbury Comics (aka the home of the $35 LP) has a new exclusive variant of Ignition by The Offspring, limited to 500 copies on gold colored vinyl. If you want to buy it, have at it. I refuse to pay $35 for a single record. Fuck that.

Tooth & Nail one ups Newbury Comics with a $40 LP! What is happening??? Anyway, it’s a Ninety Pound Wuss compilation album. It’s $40. If that sounds good to you, you can buy it here.

A mystery color variant of 88 Fingers Louie‘s Back on the Streets recently popped up on Revelation Records’ distro. They don’t specify if it’s a new 25th anniversary pressing or just someone leftover copies of the 2019 reissue someone found in a box… at the very least, it’s way cheaper than any of the Discogs listings, so why not roll the dice?

Well, that’s all, folks. Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs (or do, I’m not your father). See ya next week!

DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (The Real McKenzies, Cock Sparrer, SACK… PLUS Black Friday Vinyl Deals)

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is a weekly column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl. In addition to new releases and reissues, this week we’ll also be highlighting some Black Friday sales on vinyl records that may interest you. So kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

British punks Grade 2 have a new self-titled album on the way. The record produced by Rancid‘s Tim Amstrong is due out in February 2023 on Hellcat Records. Check out their new single “Under the Streetlight” below, and go here for links to where all the different color variants of the LP can be purchased.

If you read our latest Ten Underrated Punk Bands That Should Be On Your Radar column, you know who SACK is. If you didn’t read it (fuck you, why didn’t you read it? I worked really hard on that!) SACK is fronted by Kody Templeman (Teenage Bottlerocket, Lillingtons, etc.). Their new record Ripper! was released on CD earlier this year, and is now finally available on vinyl thanks to the friendly people at Red Scare. Pre-order this beast here.

Also from Red Scare (in case you missed our story about it earlier this week): A first-time vinyl release of Sludgeworth‘s Losers of the Year. For those who aren’t in the know, this was a short lived project of Screeching Weasel‘s Dan Vapid that also featured his SW bandmate Brian Vermin on drums. This album was originally released on CD in 1995 through Lookout! Records, and old school pop-punk aficionados have been clamoring for a vinyl reissue for a long time. The wait is over! Head over to Red Scare’s webstore to grab your copy.

Punk supergroup Fake Names (ft. members of Bad Religion, Refused, Fugazi, etc.) have announced their new album Expendables will be released on March 3rd, 2023 through Epitaph Records. Check out the first single “Delete Myself” below, and pre-order the record here (yellow vinyl, US) or here (“black & white galaxy” vinyl, EU).

Today marks the release of Celtic punk veterans The Real McKenzies new covers album Songs of the Highlands, Songs of the Sea. Fat Wreck Chords is sold out of colored vinyl, but you can still get it on black wax from their webstore. For those outside of the states, the record is available here (CA), here (EU), and here (AUS).

And because you can never have enough Fat Wreck Chords in your life, here’s another new release from Fat! NOFX frontman Fat Mike has teamed up with Get Dead‘s Sam King on a new project called Codefendants. Check out the band’s new single below and order their 10″ split with Get Dead from Fat Wreck’s webstore.

A few Record Radars ago, we let you that the Transplants‘ self-titled debut album was getting a 20th Anniversary reissue. Well, those sold out really fucking quick so Hellcat Records has announced some additional, retailer-exclusive color variants. 1-2-3-4! Go Records and Smartpunk each have their own unique variants here in the US, and Banquet Records has an EU exclusive “cool blue” color variant.

Pirates Press Records is reissuing all seven Cock Sparrer LPs in honor of the band’s 50th Anniversary. You can get them individually for 20 bucks each, or as a set for $125 (that’s a savings of 15 dollars, folks!). No pretty colors here, just good ol’ black wax.

Just in time for the holiday season, Chris Farren‘s Like a Gift from God or Whatever is back in print on neon green colored vinyl. Head over to Asian Man Recordswebstore and get a piece of this yuletide wax ?

Fraser from the Murderburgers is a busy guy! In addition to his current band Wrong Life (featured in Dying Scene’s Ten Underrated Punk Bands You Need To Check Out Right Now column) he has now announced another project called Absolute Melt. Check out the single “2am (The Face Changes Shape)” below, and go here to pre-order their upcoming 10″ EP. All profits from physical and digital sales will go to Scottish Women’s Aid, who help women, children and young people in Scotland affected by domestic abuse.

Black Friday Sales

The first Black Friday sale we’ll be highlighting comes to us from the purveyors of pop-punk at Mom’s Basement Records. For one day only, everything on their webstore (including that awesome distro section with The Windowsill‘s album that I just gave a 5-Star review ?) will be 30% off! Stay tuned to the label’s social profiles for more info. This is the sale of the year as far as I’m concerned.

Merchbar’s entire store is perpetually “on sale”, but their Black Friday Preview sale sees stuff marked down a bit more than usual. The sale has already started, and considering it ends in three days, I assume they’ll be having a proper BF sale later in the week. If you’re just looking for punk records and don’t want to waste precious time searching, you can find most of them here. Some highlights include the RamonesRocket to Russia ($17.99), NOFX‘s Pump Up the Valuum ($15.99), and Operation Ivy‘s Energy ($15.99).

If you’re looking for some gifts for the rude boy (or girl) in your life, Jump Up Records has you covered. They’re not having a sale per se, but they do have some awesome new shit on their webstore for Black Friday, including brand new reissues of some 90’s Moon Ska LPs, alongside a bunch of 7″s, CDs, and cassettes. Happy skalidays! ?

Everyone’s favorite indie record store Walmart is having a sale of their own. All vinyl records are $15 in-store at all Walmart locations (exclusives are discounted on their website as well). I’ve seen plenty of pearl-clutching going on about this sale, but I don’t give a fuck ? There are some good deals to be had here. I got The Clash‘s 3xLP Combat Rock + The People’s Hall for $15. There were a ton of WM’s new exclusive pressings of Green Day‘s American Idiot and International Superhits at my local store as well. There’s an ample supply of soundtracks and Luke Combs records, too, if you’re into that kinda thing. Sale ends Sunday, November 20th.

And of course, Wally World’s red competitor Tarshay has a sale, too. Starting Sunday, November 20th, all records (and movies, CDs, misc. other media) will be Buy 2, Get 1 Free. Is that cheaper than Walmart? I don’t know, I’m too lazy to do that math (probably not though). This sale will be online and in store, and there’s no limit on how many records you can buy. So if you really want all 375 copies of the new Adele album your local Target has in stock, load up that god damn cart!

Last but not least, we have Record Store Day Black Friday. Again, not much in the way of deals here, but there are some exclusive releases that may interest you. In addition to the 10th Anniversary reissue of Masked Intruder‘s debut LP we highlighted last week, you may also be interested in Goldfinger‘s Hello Destiny (reissued in honor of its 15th Anniversary), and a new Joe Strummer live acoustic album Live at Music Millennium. The only place you can (potentially) get these and all the other RSBF releases is your local record store on Black Friday (November 25th).

And that’s all, folks! Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below (or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram), and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs. Please note: the Record Radar will be closed next week in observance of Thanksgiving. Have a safe and happy holiday, friends!

Top Drawer Records

The initial idea was to unload some of the early 90’s vinyl sitting in my basement, but then I thought it would be fun to be in a band again, and started Date Night with Brian.  Brian Foss said that we should record some songs, that way it would be easier to book us.  So, we did a demo, and then thought: why not put out an EP?  So we made the first Date Night with Brian Record.  Then we got a few shows, mission accomplished.  In the process we noticed there are a lot of great pop punk bands in Seattle, and thought we should do a compilation to document all these great bands, so then we did 14 Soda Punx LP and a festival to release it: The Seattle Pop Punk Festival.  Then, it was a 7” for Denny’s new band The Drolls, then it was a 7″ for Lisa Marr and The Tranzmitors and now it seems I’ve got a new band The Subjunctives and of course we’ve got an LP out with a 2nd LP on the way and all kinds of t-shirtsstickersposters, and buttons now…

Oh for crying out loud, I have a record label again.
