We're excited to announce the repress of NEWTOWN NEUROTICS - When The Oil Runs Out - 7" (1980)!!!

If there was a vote for the best lyrical content in the 80s Punk songs, Steve Drewett of Newtown Neurotics would probably have blown everyone out of the water with his sharp to the point lyrics about the socio-political situation in the UK back during the Thatcherism. That aside, Newtown Neurotics were one of the best UK Punk bands of the second Punk wave. Take for example their debut album "Beggars Can Be Choosers" from 1983 which contains a hit after hit: The Mess, Living With Unemployment, Get Up And Fight, No Respect, Life In Their Hands,... I can't think of another Punk album so consistently good all the way through. Melodic political Punk anthems that deal both with political as well as social issues and are as actual today as they were back in the 80s.
When The Oil Runs Out was their second 7" released in 1980. We're repressing it identical to the original with the original covers from back in the day! 450 copies on black, 50 on color. Out on, of course, the 1st of May! What better date could we have possibly found?! :)

You can preorder a copy for 5 euros a piece (black vinyl) or 8 euros a piece (color vinyl) here.

The second EP for NAPRED U PROSLOST on No Plan Records!!!

On the 1st of May we´re releasing the second 7"EP by Napred U Proslost titled "Komunizam".
Following the highly acclaimed first EP named "1985" after the year those recordings were made, we are putting out the second EP containing songs from their second, third and fourth demo tape recorded in 1985 and 1986. Great raw, poignant, sincere HC/Punk from rural ex-Yugoslavia. It´s one of the best hidden secrets from the 80s HC/Punk scene in ex-YU and we´re finally doing justice to these incredible songs never released on vinyl before. Here´s how MRR described their first EP: "Wow! What a record! This is a real diamond in the rough... Something about these compositions screams discontent and revolution....More please!"
We are pressing 300 copies on black and 50 copies on red vinyl. You can preorder these for 5 euros a piece (black vinyl) or 8 euros a piece (red vinyl) here.

 Listen to a couple of songs from the 7" here: NO PLAN Records.
