Dying Scene Record Radar: New punk vinyl releases & reissues (Pulley, Anti-Flag, A Wilhelm Scream & more)

Hello friends, and welcome back to the Dying Scene Record Radar! In the unlikely case that you missed me last week, I offer my sincere apologies. I was out of town for my birthday so the Record Radar went on a very brief hiatus. Anyway, I’m back and a lot of exciting stuff seems to have happened while I was gone. So this week we’ll be playing a little catch up. Let’s get into it!

DustyWax Records is giving Pulley‘s 60 Cycle Hum a 25th Anniversary reissue. This is the first time this melodic punk classic will be in print since its initial release in 1997. If you live in Canada, you’ll want to pre-order here. For my fellow Americans, Thousand Islands Records still has some copies available on their webstore. And our European friends can get it here.

Anti-Flag‘s The General Strike is getting a 10th Anniversary reissue (how the fuck was 2012 ten years ago?). This is limited to 2,000 copies on red vinyl, with new artwork and two “previously unreleased” tracks. Pre-order yours here.

FACT CHECK: These songs were, in fact, previously released! They were on a digital EP that was given away to attendees of the band’s tour in support of The General Strike. It hurts me to say Anti-Flag is fake news.

Fat Wreck Chords continues their 25th Anniversary reissue series with the Teen Idols‘ self-titled debut LP. Original pressings of this record are very hard to come by; the cheapest on Discogs right now is $72 after shipping. This reissue is on half black/half yellow vinyl, not sure how many copies were made. We’re late to the party and this is sold out in the US and Europe. If you want this slice of 90’s pop-punk perfection, the only place you can still get it is Artist First Australia.

Also from Fat: a new pressing of Dillinger Four‘s Situationist Comedy, I would assume in honor of its 20th Anniversary, though they don’t market it as such. Anywho, this has been out of print for a while, so good news for anyone who’s been wanting it. Head over to their webstore to get your hands on this one.

Leatherface‘s 1993 LP Minx is being reissued on red vinyl. If you reside in the UK, this is probably the cheapest place to get this record. Americans can save about 20 bucks by grabbing it from Amazon.

No Idea Records has repressed A Wilhelm Scream‘s Partycrasher on “kaleidoscope colored vinyl” (whatever the fuck that means). They made 150 copies, each one is unique. This is a great album. Get your copy here.

A bunch of Rancid records are back in print on vinyl for the first time in a while. This includes both of their self-titled albums, …And Out Come the Wolves, Life Won’t Wait, and Indestructible. Oakland’s own 1-2-3-4 Go! Records has all of these in stock and your order ships for free if it’s over $75. So if you wanna grab a few of these, head on over to their webstore.

California melodic punks Craig’s Brother have announced their first new album in 11 years. Easily Won, Rarely Deserved is due out in November on People of Punk Rock Records. Pre-order the record here. The first single will premiere next week, for now you can listen to the band’s latest EP below.

Now that all the new releases and reissues have been covered, here’s what I’ve been listening to! My awesome mom got me a bunch of records for my birthday – The Adolescents‘ self-titled album, The FlatlinersInviting Light (I wasn’t crazy about this record when it first came out, but I’ve listened to it about three times now and I’m really enjoying it), the latest from Joey Cape and Face to Face, and Millencolin‘s True Brew. I also finally got the Walmart Exclusive(!!!) pressings of Green Day‘s American Idiot and International Superhits I ordered a few months ago. I’m still debating whether I want that new blue variant of Dookie.

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, 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. See ya next week!
