Post-Memorial Day Weekend Cookin's at thee Scratch

A few new items of note we'd like you to know about found there way to 2531 Delaware this week, along with some crucial re-stocks and plenty of previously enjoyed titles on both vinyl and silvery plastic varities.

TYVEK s/t lp Tyvek have been churning out acclaimed singles for the last few years--on the somewhat nerdy and super catchy lower fidelity angle. They are the type of band who can rope in fans of indie, garage and punk. The long player, released on the high profile Siltbreeze imprint, (and it's "controversial" cover) steps things up on all fronts. They will be in town on June 19th at the Moahwk study up. Singles still in stock, too.

WALLS - Tread On Me 12"
"We all decided that after the first batch of noise rock that we wrote we would make a punk record. Something we could really bug out to. Something we could break shit to. This is that record. It has the same ugly, negative vibe that the self-titled LP has but it's faster and shorter"

- On the heels of their critically acclaimed Primary Colours lp comes this 2 (long) song 7" record. Get 'em while they last.

SIC ALPS - U.S. EZ - Restock of the quickly sold out lp.

SCREECHING WEASEL - Boogadaboogada.../My Brain Hurts - More re-stocks of recently reissued (with new gatefold covers and artwork) 90's classics.

THE INTELLIGENCE - Fake Surfers "Fake Surfers .... plays to the Intelligence's extremes, casting a more pronounced British Invasion pop influence in warped, peak-level lo-fi sonics, emphasizing a connection between post-punk and psychedelia that stretches from Clinic and Guided by Voices through the deconstructionist pop of Swell Maps and Wire and back to the whimsical wordsmithery of Syd Barrett and Skip Spence." - --pitchfork hack
We also have copies of their previous lp, Deuteronomy.
The Intelligence features Lars, who used to be in the A-Frames.

NEKO CASE - BLACKLISTED - Restock. Also have copies of Canadian Amp and The Tigers Have Spoken while we anxiously await the arrival of Middle Cyclone.


EAT SKULL - WILD & INSIDE LP - sophomore upgrade from Portland based noise-pop band. A fine example of the cream rising to the top in an overcrowded genre.


YOUNG WIDOWS/MELT BANANA 7" Part 2 in a Young Widows series we are trying our damnedest to keep up with.

WATERY LOVE 7" - debut release from ex-Clockcleaner.

loads of re-stocks, too: PAVEMENT re-issues, FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS, ZZ TOP, MILK N' COOKIES, KURT VILE, BLANK DOGS, MASTODON and loads more...

**Don't forget the VILENT LOVERS CLUB (odie of the baseball furies new band) live in-store performance FRIDAY MAY 29, which kicks off The 4th PAIN IN THE BIG NECK FEST May 29th and 30th and Mohawk Place, 47 e. mohawk street downtown. Buffalo stalwarts the Blowtops will be playing their final show after 13 years of releasing acclaimed records and touring the US and Europe extensiviely. The same can be said for the Baseball Furies, who are reforming with their Buffalo and Chicago lineups for 2 sets. They will be joined by bands from across the country who annually converge on Nickel City for this annual show. The Homostupids, Terrible Twos, Chrome Spiders, Red Red Red and AV Murder (ex-Tyrades) and Buffalos own PLATES are among them as well as the Fatal Figures (ex-Blowtops, Plates) will be playing their first show ever.
