Preorder BOILERMAN's new one-sided 10" 6 July 2015

I'm proud to announce the BOILERMAN self-titled one-sided 10" is now available for pre-order.

The release is limited to 500 hand-numbered clear vinyl 10”es with exclusive splatter colors for each of the three record labels involved: 86’d Records (US), Crapoulet Records (FR), and Waterslide Records (JP)

All pre-orders before the March 3rd release date will include a free copy of FELLOW PROJECT "Basic Axemanship" CD. We'll also have limited number of the European and Japanese color vinyl variants to choose from while supplies last.

Click to stream the album or pre-order a copy here.

The Chicago trio is back with five new songs that sounds like someone put the Screeching Weasel/Born Against split 7” in a blender and pressed it to a one-sided 10”. The tracks were recorded and mastered under the scratch title “Dark” along with another three songs slated for a forthcoming 7” single - with the scratch title “Pop” - by bass player Kris di Benedetto.

This material lives up to its dark moniker with a lyrical trajectory that starts with the meaningless of life, moves on to the filth of the material world, and finally lands on the inevitability of death. Dark stuff. But just as the impending single portends hope, so too do these songs; righteous anger, building crescendos, and buried melodies, all coming together to expand what kind of punk can be called pop.

Boilerman s/t one-sided 10" 27 November 2014

I’m very psyched to finally announce a new one-sided 10” coming from Chicago’s BOILERMAN in 2015.

Sounding like someone put the Screeching Weasel/Born Against split 7” in a blender and pressed it to a one-sided 10”, Chicago’s BOILERMAN return with their first material since 2013’s “Loss Leaders” LP. These five songs were recorded and mastered under the scratch title “Dark” along with another three songs slated for a forthcoming 7” single - with the scratch title “Pop” - by bass player Kris Benedetto. This material lives up to the name with a lyrical trajectory that starts with the meaningless of life, moves on to the filth of the material world, and finally lands on the inevitability of death. Dark stuff indeed. But just as the impending single portends hope, so too do these songs; righteous anger, building crescendos, and buried melodies, all come together to expand what kind of punk can be called pop.

The release is limited to 500 hand-numbered one-sided clear vinyl 10”es. Exclusive splatter colors available from each of the three labels releasing the record: 86’d Records in the US, Crapoulet Records in France, and Waterslide Records in Japan.

Check out Boilerman’s 2013 full length “Loss Leaders” over their Bandcamp page. You can read an interview with the band over at For The Love of Punk.

Last copies of Rubrics LP and Dead Uncles / The Credentials split 7" plus weed gets you 20% off 12 October 2013


I’m down to my last copies on a couple of releases. Get on ‘em before they’re gone.

86D010 - RUBRICS “Apathy Is An Institution” 12”
Only 2 copies left. These copies include both the regular LP jacket and the limited to 100 flap folder cover version. To my knowledge these are the only 2 copies that include both….as I had some extra lying around.

86D004 - DEAD UNCLES / THE CREDENTIALS split 7”
Down to the last 14 copies of this bugger. These are the “overrun” copies limited to 50 units with the blue (instead of pink) OBI strip.

Use the code “WEED” at checkout to receive 20% off of your entire order. Good on anything in the store through Monday-ish.

Last of the Iron Chic Back Patches 5 October 2013


I’ve got exactly 9,8,7,6,5,4,3, 2 IRON CHIC back patches (or buttflaps if you’re a crusty) left in the store. I’ve marked them down $3 so get on ‘em before they’re gone.

These are leftover from the very first run of “Not Like This” CDs and were limited to 500… no plans to make them again.

When you’re done buying a back patch, make sure to pre-order “The Constant One” over at b9store.com/ironchic… but not before also buying this, this, and this from me.

New Releases, Bundle 1 October 2013


I posted two new releases along with a bundle of all the most recent 86'd stuff last night. Here are the links:

  • DEAD UNCLES "Stock Characters" 12"
  • CELEBRITY INTERNMENT CAMP s/t CD
  • 86'D RECORDS Recent Release Bundle

Either of these new releases is worth the price of admission, but that bundle deal will wind up saving you over 10 bones.
