14,99 €*
Release:2010 / US – Reissue

AVAILABLE AGAIN AT A NEW LOWER PRICE!!! "Banque Allemande has a relentlessness that reminds me of the Gordons and Rema Rema, the thuggish charm of Feedtime, and some 1-2-3-4 yucks of 'i dunno, name some late 70s euro punk outfit'-but that's me hearing them. Their background is in the bands DISCOUNTER, TRUMPF AS, and MOSER INDIAN. Their ears are attuned to the hammering beats of Boys Noize. Or as they describe their sound: minimalistic, cut-down songstructures-yes please. rough sounds, straight beats-yes please. if what comes out is called 'punk'-whatthefuck." Edition of 500 copies.

A couple years ago, this fine label released the debut album by a mysterious Berlin band called BANQUE ALLEMANDE. Trapped in a city more known for dance music than two chord rock & roll, Banque Allemande's live shows were restricted to a few underground spaces and Berlin's subway system. They recorded for themselves but outside of a small circle of friends they were unknowns. Somehow or another, S.S. stumbled on them and got them to smash their recordings into one album which they called Eins, Zwei. A primitive assault of strum & klang, the critical response went something like this: 'Das Missing Link zwischen Trio, Huesker Due Land Speed Record und Rainer Werner Fassbinder' (Andre Pluskwa/Vice); '...a monster slab of relentless guitar fury from out of nowhere' (Ryan Wells/Z Gun); 'Ihr seid zur Zeit die beste deutsche Band die ich kenne' (Max Mueller/Mutter); 'Primitive and noisy, yet with an undeniable intelligence driving the car into the wall' (Rich Kroneiss/Terminal Boredom). Well, now comes album number two, Willst du Chinese sein musst du die ekligen Sachen essen. Like their first, Willst du Chinese, mixes marathon riffage with shorter blast, centering on a two chord fung set to a galloping beat, a sound that brings to mind the Gordons, early Leather Nun, and even Big Black. However, it sounds like our German pals have been listening to a little Velvet Underground, too. Like Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Banque Allemande take VU's pop rock side and punk it up a bit. Oh, the Banques also spare a moment or two getting heavy. This one is a little more diverse than their first album but fans will be pleased...and those new to the band will be searching for the debut. Four hundred of these birds exist, so act fast. Another brilliant cover art job, again by JURGEN GREWE.
Monoshock - Walk To The Fire

REISSUED ON VINYL!!! Long considered a classic by music freaks and much sought after by modern psych nodes, the remastered reissue of MONOSHOCK's monster has been anticipated for quite some time...and now it is here. Monoshock's roots lie in Isla Vista, a charming student ghetto stuck on California's Central Coast. It was there that UMBILICAL CHORDS, a punk quartet who shot snot on the year 1987, were born. Scrappy and snotty, the Chords were led by guitarist GRADY RUNYAN. By 1988 the Chords were gone and Runyan, SCOTT DERR and RUBIN FIBERGLASS formed Monoshock taking garage blargh into realms previously occupied by the Stooges, Amon Duul II, Hawkwind, Blue Cheer, and other proponents of punkoid psychedelia or psychedelic punk or just good and loud rock & roll music. Later joined by ALUMINUM QUEEN on saxophone and DOUG PEARSON on all things Doug Pearson, Monoshock recorded three singles (on Womb, Blackjack, and Bag of Hammers) and a now legendary double album called Walk to the Fire (Blackjack). The 1995 release of their magnum opus also coincided with the end of the band. Praised by a handful of people at the time, Walk to the Fire didn't really start getting its due until Julian Cope featured it on his website Head Heritage, bands such as Comets on Fire and the Wooden Shjips started referencing Monoshock as an influence, and S.S. Records assembled a CD anthology of Monoshock's singles, compilation tracks and demo recordings (2004's Runnin Ape-like from the Backwards Superman). Since its release Walk to the Fire has been hailed as a "barbarian classic" by Julian Cope (who also wrote that "Monoshock was to rock'n'roll what those Miles Davis 1975 wa-everything Japan-release-only double-vinyl monsters (Get Up With It, Agartha, Dark Magus) were to jazz. That is, superfluous to the fucking intellectuals but spiritual carbohydrates for the ones who knew". Remastered from the original tapes-the result is a much better sounding record than the original pressing. Those fortunate enough to see their recent "reformation" show at the S.S. 2 Festival have universally agreed the band was "face melting." Includes an insert with liner notes and photos.
