Come to Decatur CD, Buy Local Punk Rock


Punk is, by nature, inconsistent. Venues come and go. People move and bands fade away. Labels go inactive. In Atlanta, however, there has been one constant for over a decade—Die Slaughterhaus. If you see a star flanked by two bars, you know you're getting a quality punk record. It was true in 2002, when Die Slaughterhaus released now-classics like the Black Lips' Ain't Comin' Back and the Lids' Too Late. It's still true in 2014 with Dino's Boys' Only Ones LP and Dasher's Go Rambo 7”.


Dasher has harnessed a unique sound, as much post as punk, to quickly become one of Atlanta's best bands. Centered around the primal ferocity of Kylee Kimbrough's drumming and vocals, Dasher blasts the listener with layer after layer of brutal noise. It's not just chaos—beneath all that noise lies a pair of great songs. “Go Rambo” is an anthemic crusher, while the flip, “Time Flys,” finds Dasher at an apex of intensity that matches their live show.


Where Dasher offers pounding urgency, Dino's Boys supply infectious revelry. Only Ones is a no-frills, all-hooks testament to how much can be accomplished in less than two minutes. Standouts include the opener, “Catapult,” and “Play Dead,” which doubles as the A-side of their debut single. To best summarize Dino's Boys, simply refer to the title of the Kids' song they cover live, “This is Rock 'n' Roll.”

We have both of these records in stock and I can't recommend them enough. When Mark from Die Slaughterhaus dropped them off, he also left a couple of the latest single by the Coathangers, who need no introduction. So check out our new local vinyl section and grab these records. And be sure to keep your eyes peeled as both Dino's Boys and Dasher play frequent shows around town. Dino's Boys are opening for White Mystery at the Earl tonight. These bands deserve your support.
