For this historical concert held at the Yubin Chokin Hall, in Tokyo on May 14, 1986, the legendary Japanese drummer Masahiko Togashi brought together an amazing line-up with such modern jazz luminaries as Steve Lacy (soprano sax), Don Cherry (pocket trumpet), and Dave Holland (bass). This particular album consists of four previously unpublished tracks (on vinyl), including some highly regarded Lacy compositions such as "The Crus" and "Quakes" and Don Cherry's African flavored anthem called "Mopti". The Lacy-Cherry frontline flies over the agile, airy rhythm section of Holland and Togashi and the interplay between the four master musicians sounds loose and relaxed. This is a must-hear for any post free jazz fan.
Catch Twenty Two are back with another heartfelt collection of punk / soul / metal / Mowtown / ska / pop gems, delivered with their customary inspiration and energy. 11 new songs about love, loss and drinking, beautifully crafted around insanely catchy horn and exuberant guitar leads and very, very highly recommended.
Featuring members of Catch 22, "Everything Goes Numb" is a natural progression of Catch 22's "Keasbey Nights", showcasing not only energetic horn parts and fabulous harmonizing vocals, but intelligent lyrics focusing on the angst-ridden lives of young adults. This is a hugely anticipated album in the ska-punk underground – an unparalleled fusion of ska, jazz, reggae, swing and punk. For fans of Catch 22, Sublime, No Doubt and Less Than Jake.
Hailing from Washington, DC, Darkest Hour are ready to grab the metal world by the throat with their debut for Victory Records, "Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation". A brutal mix of aggressive hardcore and conventional power metal, reminiscent of bands such as At the Gates, In Flames, Dismember and Iron Maiden. Extreme hard rock and set to become one of the biggest US metal ablbums of 2003.
A totally aggressive blast that hits you like a coiled spring as Karl, Erick and Bulldog, formerly of Earth Crisis bring you "As The Last Light Drains" in their new incarnation as Freya. This is pulverizing heavy hardcore that mixes brutal guitar lines with vicious but accessible vocals.
Featuring founding members of classic California hardcore bands Outspoken, Insted and Chorus of Disapproval. A18's message is not new, but their commitment is particularly refreshing. No room for compromise in their musical vocabulary. This is powerful, loud and demanding hardcore at its best.

The third album for Victory records from the River City Rebels is a no holds barred punk rock epistle. This seven piece punk band feature a dual horn section and the rare ability to create infectious punk anthems with powerful, politically aware lyrics. They're young lads but don't let the age fool you, they perform like seasoned punksters.
Like an updated version of the classic Elvis Costello debut this Long Island band combines a fuzzbox sound and sleek pop-rock sensibility with the edgy style of 2002 emocore. With dual vocals and driving guitars matched against organ and a slinky bassline, their well-crafted songs are infectious and full of zip. New on Victory Records, The Reunion Show and Foo Fighters / Jimmy Eat World producer Nick Raskulinecz have come up with a brilliantly realized album that showcases their pristine melodies and crunchy guitars perfectly.
Wrapped in a vision of a tormented Hell, with dismembered limbs, nightmare dolls and blood sucking demons it's fitting that Grade's music is a fusion of the most intense elements of hardcore, punk, emo and metal. Emotion, passion, brutal honesty and nippy guitar riffs a cut above many in the genre. Grade's trademark combination of aggression and melody continues to develop and really hits home. They have unconsciously taken their sound to the next level of accessibility without compromising their roots.
The River City Rebels have blossomed from seven young rebels with a cause into one of the best punk bands today. No nonsense old skool with a touch of added ska and a dash of politics. Charged, urgent anthems and tales of life in New England, lost love and the feelings felt by every teenager in every small town in America.
