WHITE WARDS benefit sale/SLICES 7" back in.

We got a few more of the SLICES - Modern Bride 7" in the store. That is sold out from the label now so these could very well be the last available copies on Earth.
Photobucket
WHITE WARDS got a bunch of their gear, all their band money and a car stolen from them. For a time We offer that if you buy their fantastic 7" from us We will give them all of the money to help get them back on their feet. After all, they are family. We like family.
Oh and it will come with a couple tasty extras but those will be a surprise when you get your package.

KIM PHUC - Copsucker LP out NOW!

Photobucket 
Good Evening Motherfuckers and Motherfuckerettes,

Tonight for your purchasing needs we offer this:

KIM PHUC - Copsucker LP (LUNGS-022)
Originally slated to be released on Parts Unknown but delayed for a near eternity, ILR is fucking psyched to finally let you in to the inner circle with KIM PHUC's debut LP. Copsucker is the pinnacle sound of a band that has been crafting, honing and re-imagining the way punk music should be played, with so much raw atmosphere and energy that it will probably rip you apart. Be careful.

We believe they are that good.
If you have had the good fortune to see these guys live then you already know that they are unbelievably tight and intensely powerful without having to lean on novelty or pretense to hook you. Rob might accidentally rub some sweat mud on your pants front but once he's come down he'll most likely offer to clean that victory stain off lickety-split. For those unfamiliar with the KP sound, it lands somewhere near the idea of Warsaw era Joy Division on steroids with a distinct Pittsburgh edge.
THE WAIT IS OVER! Welcome home.

Buy it at
ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com
Digital versions available at ironlungpv.bandcamp.com and iTunes.

Thank you.
-Jensen

TRUE RADICAL MIRACLE LP & PHT 7" are out NOW

Hello this evening,

We have these things available at ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com

(LUNGS-024) TRUE RADICAL MIRACLE - Cockroaches LP w/ free mp3 download code.
It's hard to believe that TRUE RADICAL MIRACLE has been largely ignored outside of Australia until now. Maybe it's because Cockroaches was only available on CD in Australia back in 2006. Maybe it's because the world wasn't quite ready for the cruel haunted ugliness that makes them a staple in the Aussie noise rock scene. Cockroaches reflects on THE BAD SEEDS and Filth/Cop era SWANS but takes it's primitive nature to new level by smashing the mirror and hacking those bands to chunks with the shards. It's spent 5 years in the shadows of the outback but now it's time for the world to experience this madness. Let the cockroaches crawl all over you.
Only 500 copies will be made. Full color, heavy duty everything. Black vinyl.
Listen: HERE

(LUNGS-026) PIG HEART TRANSPLANT - Weapon/Gut Pleasures 7"
Upon first listen to this I felt sick. Upon the second listening I felt dirty. And sicker. "Weapon" is an aural attack on sanity while "Gut Pleasures" is so far from pleasing that We have given up all hope of further existence. This record is the equivalent of swimming in fallout with open wounds. This record kills you. This record is inner turmoil industrialized. This record has replaced your feelings. This record is our future. This record is not for people.
500 copies. Black vinyl in a sleeve with some fucking letters on it.
Listen: HERE

*TRUE RADICAL MIRACLE and WALLS will be touring the west coast of America at the end of January 2012. Both bands will have new albums by then too.

*At the plant:
KIM PHUC - Copsucker LP. (out late November)

Thank you for your undivided attention...
Jensen

OUT Today! - TOTAL CONTROL "Henge Beat" LP



(LUNGS-021) TOTAL CONTROL - Henge Beat LP.
The combination of all their previous work and a steady live band has come together to form the great Henge Beat LP. Beautifully housed in a bright European-art-designed gatefold sleeve. These guys have outdone themselves with this one. Musically it rests somewhere between late 70's UK new wave a-la Ha Ha Ha era ULTRAVOX and the "now sound" EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING Aussie garage that we all know and love. Add a dash of hopeful Krautrock flavor and the recipe is a smashing success. We could not be happier to offer this perfect execution to you.

Here is a taste of the big hit that will make them famous... "The Hammer"
  

Still ripping:
DEAD LANGUAGE LP (Approved for use by all scientists near and far. Globe-crushing.)
WHITE WARDS - Waste My Time 7" (MRR faves!! The mighty Top-10 will not lie, ha ha.) ON a WEST COAST TOUR RIGHT NOW.

BIG CRUX - Nature Cruising 12" Available NOW

Remember all this from before? Well this slab is out now for you to wiggle on...

Reposted from some other internet:
Photobucket
Hey, folks! Big Crux has a modest musical proposal for you. What could possibly be construed as vacant-stare-chicken-walk-boogie, if not neo-bopism [wink], we happily announce a new one-sided 12” EP entitled Nature Cruising. Inspired when on visit with assorted Chicano Rockers, R&B groovesters, and Boondoggle and Bizcocho, during a field trip to some bygone era of rock n’ roll, it is five songs [some with blatant nods to the aforementioned], 368 iterations, artwork by el presidente Elías Martinez, and musings on the trajectory of human history. You can hear it at bigcrux.bandcamp.com.  Available now through the Iron Lung Records store.

Nice and Friendly, BCX

P.S. Nature Cruising is limited to 300 copies so act fast!

WHITE WARDS 7" & IRON LUNG junks

Photobucket
Hello comrades.  Today we have these fine sundries to whet your parched whistles:

WHITE WARDS - Waste My Time 7" (LUNGS-017)
Hailing from Olympia WA, this hungry quartet serves up 6 of the meanest sound-fights that city has ever swallowed. Heavy, fast and intriguing all at the same time (not an easy feat in our opinion). Sonically they land somewhere between the Face The Music era TAR BABIES and DEVOID OF FAITH. Flip, repeat, flip, repeat, We love this record. It's easily one of the best ILR releases to date. They just finished a short tour with Condominium a few weeks ago and we heard nothing but good reports. Look out for them touring the west coast again later this summer.

IRON LUNG - Surgery Poster
18x24 2 color screen printed poster. Strictly limited to 100 copies. Artwork by FEEDING. The quality of this is ridiculous and absolutely top notch. It has to be seen to be belived. Our finest poster ever.

IRON LUNG - Surgery T-Shirt
The monochrome version of the poster image (mostly). And just like the poster, it's only available from us. White ink on a black 100% cotton Fruit of the Loom Short sleeve tee.

All this and more available HERE.

Thank you for your continued support and impeccable taste in music.
-Jensen

**Please bear in mind that we are a small crew so orders will be processed as fast as possible but sometimes get a bit delayed. 

Up next:
DEAD LANGUAGE LP - A 20 minute power violence mind crusher with members of IRON LUNG, SOLUTIONS, WALLS and NO COMMENT. Out by Chaos In Tejas??
TOTAL CONTROL - Hengebeat LP - A krautrock infused new wave garage punk album. Best thing since TUXEDOMOON on the Deaf Club comp. Out end June/early July.
