New Release: Work by Bullshit Hardcore Band

 Just got some of these beauties in the shop! 

12-inch 45rpm vinyl 

Clear lathe-cut polycarbonate records by Peter King in New Zealand in an edition of 30 

with wood-cut print covers by GB and xerox'ed insert/lyric sheet

( Includes unlimited streaming of work via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.)

  "Work" - by The Bullshit Hardcore Band 

 Work Part 1 is a cut-up edit of various 4-track cassette demos and rehearsal recordings made in Spring 2014 by the BSHC that was subsequently stitched together via Audacity freeware. 

 Work Part 2 was spontaneously composed and recorded by the BSHC also in Spring 2014.

The Bullshit Hardcore band is GB on guitars and vocals, and Lee Shatwater on vocals and drums. 


 Also available: "super-weirdo limited 78rpm" 

homemade lathe of the FTP EP carved onto an old videodisc!!!!! 


"Pummeling, experimental hardcore from two greying Southern Ontario punks. BSHC harkens back to the ferocity and breakneck speed of ‘80s hardcore greats, while embodying something that disavows any real comparison. This is classic, abrasive, and intelligent music from a couple of dudes who know how to instill something with true punk spirit while pushing things forward and sounding like nothing else. A galloping wall of noise with something to say."
