Ugly Pop 45s in stock
August 17, 2012 - 02:38 PMYes, we have the recent 45s issued by Ugly Pop. Here's a brief breakdown:
Bent Wind - Sacred Cows
Bent Wind's 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 and insert made with full cooperation of the band, LP reissue to follow!
A Passing Fancy - I'm Losing Tonight
One of the all-time great Toronto singles, this actually had decent local chart success in early '67. The hit's 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 and insert.
Northwest Company - Hard to Cry
Vancouver's legendary Northwest Company released a fair number of records, but nothing touched this impossible-to-find 1967 debut for sheer roughness. Hard To Cry is a wild, fast punk screamer with nasty proto-metal riffing and a caveman rhythm section and the flip's a similarly aggressive pounder with some serious frustration bleeding through. Clearly inspired by the toughest early Kinks and Who 45s, this is one of the most very sought after of all Canadian garage records, but now's your chance to pick up a high-quality, authorized reissue with excellent remastered sound and brand new sleeve.
The Filthy Gaze of Europe
New project from Don (SHADOWY MEN ON A SHADOWY PLANET, CRASH KILLS FIVE) and Dallas (THE SADIES). Assaultive, disjointed thrash with guitar and bass backed by programmed drums and synths, different vocalists on each song. First 45 features Damian (FUCKED UP) and Amanda Schenk on side A, Chris Colohan (LEFT FOR DEAD, CURSED) and Mickey Skin (THE CURSE) on the flip.
Limited to 200 on opaque green vinyl, 200 on White, and 200 on Red.
Each 7" is $5.99 while supplies last.
