All other CD’s including Leatherface’s Live in Melbourne, The Sainte Catherines’ Fire Works and NRFB CD’s have also been reduced in this period of austerity, so stock up while you can. Available here right now.

The Sainte Catherines’ T-Shirts Found In Abandoned Basement

The Sainte Catherines T-ShirtHeld captive since a brief tour of Europe when young and later abandoned by really naughty bad ass people, the surviving and ever so slightly dishevelled Fire Works t-shirts (2 x Ladies Fit Small and Medium, 5 x Medium and 9 x X Large) are in the caring hands of the Big Ugly Fish and are currently looking for permanent, caring homes to go to at a small fee of £8 each. Available here right now

N.R.F.B Featuring Frankie NW Stubbs

NRFBN.R.F.B (Nuclear Raped Fuck Bomb) is a collaboration of Frankie Stubbs (Leatherface), Jens Rachut (Kommando Sonne-Nmilch), Thomas Wenzel (Die Sterne, Die Goldenen Zitronen) and Mense Reents (Stella, Egoexpress). The 7 songs of this record, alternated sung by Frankie Stubbs, Jens Rachut and the female voice of Lisa Hagmeister are a wild and insane mix of punk rock with electronic influences, techno, flamenco-guitars and spoken words. Surrounded by strange lyrics and unbelievable stories in german and english this is perhaps the strangest independent/punk-record in 2011 far beyond any genre limits.

The highlights include the title track ‘NRFB’ where Frankie takes over the lead vocals, the song ‘The Tank Driver’, which is a command performance par excellence and the final piece ‘Schaffel’, a driving mid-tempo number even with flamenco guitar work. A great disc, which reveals its true greatness only after repeated listening. The cover artwork is a photograph of four military amputees using donkeys to assist in mobility and is an enigma in itself.

The CD (Available here) comes with a chic matte gold-plated pressure digi-pack with booklet text. The matte gold-coated cover of the limited LP edition comes coloured inner bag with lyrics in olive green / brown vinyl (Available here).
