Asian Man Records Presents - Mailorder For The Masses

29 great songs for £4.99! COME ON! Here's the latest Asian Man Records sampler, tracks from Link 80, Alkaline Trio, MU330, Colossal, The Lawrence Arms, The Chinkees and all the usual Asian Man suspects.

Nicotine

Samurai Shot

Japan's Nicotine have been playing their punk rock sound since 1993. It's high octane, deft Nippon niftiness. Asian Man Records bring you a compilation of tracks from their Japanese releases, over 70 minutes of music altogether. Influenced heavily by the likes of NOFX (same instrumentation - two guitars, bass and drums) this is no holds barred hardcore punk.

EE

Tinyspot

EE hails from San Francisco, California and features Soo Young Park from Seam on guitar / keyboards and Tobin Mori ex-Korea Girl on guitar / lead vocals. The sound is very reminiscent of Seam in many ways. It's not the usual sort of Asian Man skacore sound, being more in a emo style with slow burners developing into epic rockers.

The Chinkees

Searching For A Better Future

From San Jose, California comes the third full-length release from Asian Man's best skacore outfit The Chinkees. "Searching for a Brighter Future" is a forceful mix of rock-steady, ska, and punk rock. Dealing with a plethora of topics from enforced prostitution of Korean women in World War II to family struggles and racism, the band combines political energy with the smooth sound we've come to expect from this class act.

MU330

Ultra Panic

MU330's seventh full length release is chock full of their own distinct brand of high energy skacore. "Ultra Panic" has the band playing more ska than any of their previous albums. With the help of organist Chaz Boy and saxophonist John Paul Camp III lending their talents, it is obvious after one listen that this is perhaps one of the finest ska releases in the last ten years.

The Plus Ones

It's A Calling

New Asian Man signing featuring ex-Mr T Experience singer Joel Reader and ex-members of the Pansy Division. Pretty much straight up rock with the characteristic Californian sound of ringing guitars and a big drum / bass sound similar to Weezer.

Potshot

A Go Go

Fancy a dose of crazy Nipponese ska core? Well this is the one for you. This is Potshot's fourth full-length release on Asian Man Records. The album has been out for almost a year in Japan and has sold over 100,000 copies. More of that pop sound that makes everyone smile, as well as lots of oohs and ahhs to go with that big brassy ska sound.

Shady View Terrace / The Lawrence Arms

Split

Asian Man re-release this amazing split CD introducing six tracks from Shady View Terrace and five tracks from The Lawrence Arms. From Springfield, NJ and Chicago, Illinois respectively, SVT deliver a powerful attack of screamo hardcore while the Lawrence Arms deliver five punk rock songs in their trade mark style.

Slapstick

Live From Chicago's Fireside Bowl

    This is a very special show by a very special band! Slapstick were one of the biggest punk rock bands to come out of Chicago. They broke up in 1996, at a time when every major label wanted them. The band re-united in 1997 for a one off reunion show and this is it. Featuring 14 tracks, rare photos and interview clips.

    Coquettish

    Coquettish

    Asian Man Records new signing - Coquettish are a punk rock quartet from Yokohama, Japan. Blistering hardcore with hints of ska and add a dash of Hi Standard.

      Pushover

      Logic And Loss

      This 5 piece band (ex-Mealticket) play a sweet blend of punk and pop melodies breaking down music "barriers" between "scenes". Echoes of the Foo Fighters and the Knack but very much their own brand of simple, direct power pop on the always listenable Asian Man label.
