Can't Stop Won't Stop


To celebrate 20 years since Mannheim punk band LOADED’s inception in 1994, ROOKIE RECORDS is releasing a limited edition 7-inch featuring two brand new tracks of “pressure drop punk rock and desperate poetry.” Housed in a gorgeous hand-screened, hand-stamped, hand-numbered sleeve by Götzilla (ROCKPOSTER/ANTIGHOST), the single will be limited to 300 copies on red vinyl. Not just for friends of The Clash, The Specials, Rancid, or The Flatliners, “CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP” shows LOADED at the top of their game, still burning with the same fire it did at their very first gig 20 years ago! Title track plus „Everlasting Minute“ on the flip.

On tour:
31.10.14 Weinheim, Café Central (20 Jahre Party w/ The Offenders)
28.11.14 Fürth, Kopf und Kragen
20.12.14 Wiesloch, Rock & Pop Verein
27.12.14 Berlin, Clash
30.12.14 Leipzig, Conne Island (Loikaemie Abschiedskonzert)

Split (Love A/Koeter)


Two new songs each of the friendly bands from Trier and Cologne. Love A present „Atomstrom“ and the more melancholic „Die Die Die“. Additional we listen to an awesome remix by their Düsseldorf buddies of Antilopen Gang, putting „Die Die Die“ into the dance rap grinder and picking up the original lyrics in a perfect way. Koeter deliver two songs too, namely „Bessere Affen“ and „Punkt Null“. For the bonus track they have Killerlady aka Junge/EA 80 at the remixer: „Bessere Affen“ with backwards vocals and kinda punk piano – worth listening aswell! Printed inner sleeves with lyrics, incl. download code.

Lo-Fi Against Low Lifes


After three releases in 2005, 2007 and 2009 Monkeeman took a longer pause and are now back with a 12-song album flavoured with authentic British Powerpop and influences of Mod-Rock. The four Monkeemen grew up listening to bands like The Jam, The Clash, The Who, The Small Faces and so on and from their younger days as teenagers they believed in bands with attitude with songs and lyrics reflecting on the lives of working class people. Political songs like Dropping bombs on the parliament“ reflect their determined opposition against uncontrolled, rampant capitalism, bankers and corrupt politicians. Indeed, the whole album challenges the very abuse of power in modern capitalistic societies and how working people struggle to survive in a world of unrelenting greed and lack of choice in political parties across the spectrum.

On tour:
25.10.14 Berlin, Bäng Bang Club
29.10.14 Chemnitz, Nikola Tesla
31.10.14 Wilhelmshaven, Kling Klang

And they still going strong, THE HARD ONS return for their first European tour in September – their first tour over in Europe for three years – and treat us to this brand new album to co-incide with the tour! This is their first new full length album in five years since 2010’s acclaimed “ALFALFA MALES ONCE SUMMER IS DONE CONFORM OR DIE” album. And to celebrate the 30 year milestone, founding member Keish Da Silva -guitar/vocals, later on drums/vocals- is back with Ray and Blackie guest featuring on some of the songs here! Featuring the usual amazing artwork from bass player Ray Ahn, its been a long time coming – but has been worth every inch of the wait.
