STATIC SHOCK WEEKEND 2017







2017. The world is pretty fucked and a lot of our lives tend to be one disappointment after another. What can you do about that? Nothing. We're all powerless. Everyone goes back on their word, and no-one can be trusted. To contribute to this, after kicking up a fuss about needing to take a year off, we're back in 2017 with another contribution to the overflowing calendar of fests. Sorry about that!

This year, the weekender will be mainly held in a new home, the ExFed /New River Studios warehouse complex in Manor House, and we're very excited to be there. Just like previous years, we're bringing over a selection of some of our favourite bands, this time from the UK, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Brazil and the USA, with hopefully one or two surprises along the way. As always you are encouraged to come see what you would like to see, and skip what you don't. Each line up has a mixed bill to keep things interesting.

Below is the final schedule with the full line up for each main show. There will also be afterparties each evening which will be announced shortly. You can now buy a weekend pass which will get you into all the shows listed below at discounted rate from this link:

To possibly save yourself a few moments:

YES:
- Individual show tickets will be made available next week.
- All official shows are all ages.
- There will be aftershows, dance parties will be announced in the coming weeks.
- We will be in need of volunteers, places for bands to sleep etc, and would love any help on that front. We'll put out the call in good time.
- We're excited to see all of you!

NO:
- The line up is full, and we also have a back up list in case anyone has to drop out. As much as you would like your goregrind band to jump on the bill, it's just not going to happen. Sorry.
- Gauze are still not on the bill. Just like every other festival.

IMPALERS - Cellar Dweller LP

The new LP from Austin's IMPALERS is now available to order!

SSR054: IMPALERS - Cellar Dweller LP

"Gasp, choke, puke, roll, die, live again. 10 songs to destruction, 10 songs to live, 10 songs that wrap up all the velocity and disturbance beneath planet earth. Impalers have Sweden in their back pocket, the U S of A dripping down the back of their legs, and use the designs that Anti-Cimex and Discard laid out to mop up the mess. There are other words to describe this blessed mess, but they become insufficient by the time the last track rolls around. In this case, Cellar Dweller can only be described as a party that you've been invited to but that you might not make it out of alive. Full colour, hellish and hilarious poster insert by Mason Tucker, and sterile, alienating, squint-to-focus-on-the-horror cover by the steamroller talent J.S. Aurelius. "When the Nukes Come Down I Keep it Underground" (J. Falco)

Limited red vinyl for mailorder.

KRIMEWATCH - S/T 7" out now!


Well summer's here and the heat wave is punishing. Just got back from Copenhagen where I saw Lebenden Toten play one of the best shows I've ever seen and also got badly sun burnt like a proper tourist. Best of both worlds? Either way, I hope you're all having a good time!

Here's a new record available now!

SSR052: KRIMEWATCH - S/T 7"



New York City's KRIMEWATCH are one of the most exciting bands to emerge from hardcore in the last year. The five tracks on this EP are a combination of Japanese punk and early NYHC; keeping it simple with shouted vocals (in both Japanese and English) and driving beats. This 7" is the bands first recordings, now remastered and pressed on vinyl to coincide with their just completed UK / Euro tour.

Blue vinyl available for mailorder only.

ORDER HERE: http://staticshockrecords.limitedrun.com/products/search?q=krimewatch
STREAM / DOWNLOAD HERE: https://staticshockrecords.bandcamp.com/album/krimewatch


We also have a few new distro bits including pretty much all of the recent Iron Lung Records releases among others. Check it out!

SIEVEHEAD LP and SARCASM 7" out now

Two new records are available now! Without further ado:

SSR051: SIEVEHEAD - Worthless Soul LP



Some bands start off important, others work it at and become important. Sievehead are one of those bands and they represent all that is good with DIY Punk in the UK in 2017. Born, raised and blossomed in the Lughole, in Sheffield, Sievehead have become a band of greatness. Second album Worthless Soul is an album full of shimmering guitars, the bleakness of 80’s Sheffield and passionate vocals that ooze defiance. It has energy, heart and that special something you can’t put your finger on. It sits next to the classic early 80’s era Gun Club, Arch Criminals (a lost Post punk band that had a 12” on Conflict’s Fight Back label) and Husker Du. But still it has DIY Punk running through every vein. Worthless Soul is ready to destroy and conquer everything and everyone in it’s path.The LP comes with a heavyweight reverse board sleeve with a printed innersleeve with artwork and photography from bassist Joe Singleton. A download code is included.

SSR047: SARCASM - Malarial Bog EP


"Sarcasm from London release their debut EP on Static Shock after a great 5 Track demo ('Total Institution' on Far so Far) in 2016. Sarcasm deal in angular post punk led by skeletal guitars and a locked in rhythm section. The vocals are nonchalant and sound like someone totally bored of life and everything that surrounds it. It just adds to the bleak and broody vibes that are sprinkled on each of the four tracks. The sound sits somewhere between a more sparse Crisis, The Fall - in the glory years on Step Forward Records and Hygiene. This is the sound of the past, the sound of now and the sound of dissatisfaction." - Sean Forbes
