Artist: Imperial State Electric / Smoke Mohawk
Label: Lightning Records
Talking about the upcoming Imperial State Electric vinyl single in my previous post, here is another brand new single by the band wich was released last week. This is a split single with Norweigan band Smoke Mohawks, i don’t know much about them other than they features member(s) from Glueficer.
On this single both bands do one cover each of a Blue Öyster Cult song, a really fun idea i think, and as always Nicke and his Imperial State Electric boys manage do to it very very good. Check it out before it’s sold out, wich usually happens really quick when it comes to Imperial State Electric singles. The single is released in 500 copies on black vinyl.
Side A: (Imperial State Electric) Cagey cretins
Side B: (Smoke Mohawk) Flaming telepaths
Artist: The Hellacopters / Electric Frankenstein
The most expensive The Hellacopters vinyl to be sold on eBay is…. this one! The Hellacopters VS Electric Frankenstein split 7″ on brown vinyl (yeah, it looks more brown in reality than on the picture due to my shitty camera). So what makes this brown version so special? First off it’s the most limited and one of the most hard to get The Hellacopters vinyls out there, released in only 100 copies and was sold exclusively through the label Frank Records members club, so it was never available anywhere else. The single was also released in following colours 500 copies black vinyl, 900 copies purple vinyl and 1000 copies cherry-red vinyl.
This version on brown vinyl have only been up for sale on eBay twice and at the most it went for as high as 408 USD, crazy i know! Myself i got this one when it was released so i payed next to nothing, as i did with all my The Hellacopters vinyls. The single have two The Hellacopters song, one original “Oh yeah alright” and one April Steven’s cover “I wan’t a lip” and i would like to say that this isn’t the best The Hellacopters release there is.
Another of the most expensively sold The Hellacopters vinyls on eBay is the Twist Action 2000 7″ on blue vinyl wich sold at it’s highest price for 405 USD.
The Hellacopters side: Oh yeah alright, I wan’t a lip
Electric Frankenstein side: Learn to burn, Born wild
Artist: The Coathangers / Davila 666
Label: Suicide Squeeze
Yet another great release by The Coathangers, here is their brand new split 7″-single with Puerto Rico’s Davila 666. I had never heard of Davila 666 before i heard this single their music is a garage rock kinda thing sung in their native language, mexican. It sounds pretty cool, but still nothing i would buy really.
The Coathangers side is of way more interest, its a brand new track called “Smother” wich sound alot as the tracks on their latest Lp Larceny And Old Lace, it would have fitted in perfectly on that album. The music is garage rock mixed with popish melodies, it sound really unique i think. Looking forward to more 7″-singles from this band.
The single is released in 750 copies, 250 copies on gold vinyl and 500 copies on black vinyl.
The Coathangers Side: Smother
Davila666 Side: No crees que ya cansa
Spin.com offers a free download of The Coathangers brand new track “Smother”, a track that will be featured on the bands split 7″-single with Davila 666.
The single will be released on April 17 on Suicide Squeeze Records in a limited edition of 750 copies (250 on gold, and 500 on black color)
You can download the track from Spin.com or directly thru this link.
To finish off my blogpost’s about the Enforcer discography here is the 7″-singles / Ep’s and Demo that the band have released. I already wrote about their albums and different pressings in earlier blog-posts. I will go thru them one by one just little fast since it’s more or less the same songs on these singles that you can find on the albums, so from top to bottom, left to right….
Evil Attacker 7″
This is the bands first release, released back in 2007 on the Iron Pegasus label. Both songs on this single appeared on the 2005 Demo (more about that a bit down), but for this release they re-recorded the track “Evil attacker” to get more heavyness to it, and if you compare it to the 2005 demo version it have small variations to them, like the intro, and mostly the way they are recorded. “Mistress from hell” is the same as on the demo as far as i know. Limited to 500 copies.
Side A: Evil attacker
Side B: Mistress from hell
Enforcer / Bullet 7″
This split-single was specially made for the “Recordstore day” in 2011 and only sold at selected recordshops.Limited to 300 copies.
Side Enforcer: High roller
Side Bullet: Back on the road
Enforcer / Volture 7″
Split-single specially made for the Earache pop-up shop in Nottingham, England. Limited to 200 copies.
Side Enforcer: Take me to hell
Side Volture: Night walker
Enforcer / Cauldron 7″
This split-single was made and given away for free at the Enforcer + Cauldron “Nightmare over the U.K” tour in 2010. I have no idea on how many copies that was pressed.
Side Enforcer: Midnight vice
Side Cauldron: Chained up in chains
Evil Attacker DEMO
CD-r demo released back in 2005 when Enforcer was a one-man-band. I was really excited the first time i heard this demo, and i still pick it up and listen to it sometimes. The quality of the demo is pretty okey i think. The versions of “Evil attacker” and “Mistress from hell” are a bit different from the ones that later made it to the bands debut album “Into the night” in 2008, and the band also did a second recording of “Evil attacker” for their debut 7″-single in 2007. “Let it loose” is a cover of the band Savage.
Mistress from hell, Evil attacker, Let it loose
Artist: The Coffinshakers , The Archers
Label: Alleycat records
The Coffinshakers have been one of my favourite band ever since i first heard them in the late 90’s, their amazing mix of country and rockabilly with lyrics of vampires wich reminds alot of old horror movies have never lost it’s grip on me and i do collect everything vinyl with the band, all singles, album and every pressing and colour. Now the bands isnt that productive and have only released a couple of albums and a handfull of singles, so when they release a new single or album it’s always a special feeling to put it on the turntable.
On this split vinyl-single you find two brand new recordings by The Coffinshakers, and if you heard of the band before you know just what to expect, for you who never heard em it can best be explained like country, rockabilly with a taste for vampire lyrics, much like a Johnny Cash singing about vampires. The two new songs is a fast one a little slower one. I could’nt find any on youtube, so i posted a live video instead so you who never heard em can check em out.
On the B side you find the band The Archers, i have never heard of them before, and to be honest, it not something i feel i missed out on. Just like the Coffinshakers it’s country rock n roll but with no vocals, so it’s plain and instrumental, nothing special really even though i think the song “Moon over istanbul” have some very cool parts.
The single is limited to 750 copies and released on black vinyl only.
Side Coffinshakers: The night of the dead, Mark of the vampire
Side Archers: Feeding frenzy, Moon over istanbul
