Get Greens - Green Plague - Full length album out now

Get Greens - Green Plague LP out 20/04/14 on download (choose what you pay). We've heard it, and you're in for a treat. They're back with their very own blend of stoner hardcore. If you like heavy hardcore full of breakdowns, you'll fuckin love this.

"Get Greens is a four-piece Hardcore band from California that refers (lol reefers) to themselves as “Weedcore” and judging by the infectious, groove-laden riffing present throughout most of “Green Plague” I imagine at least partial songwriting credit could go to nature's most controversial gift. You may remember hearing “Cashed” from “The Tokeover” on Episode 48 and while that's a pretty damn good EP by itself, Get Greens has really stepped it up on “Green Plague” both in sound quality and songwriting. While I'm not really too much of a stickler for production value, this is definitely a case where a more “professional” sound has proven to make a huge difference. The band just hits a little harder now, the groove is heavier, the smoke is thicker and the 40s are colder. No, this album doesn't come with party favors, but it totally should. Actually, every album should because that would rule."    No One Likes Your Band album review

2012 Thank YOU!!

Just a quick word to say thank you for everyone's support in 2012! It's been a funny old year to be honest!

We have VERY full lives outside of doing this stuff, from jobs to children, to bands to other hobbies, from partying to recovering, so as you can imagine we appreciate the continued support. Your orders are what keeps this alive and without you we wouldn't really able to exist. DIY culture is an amazing thing, support it!

We plan on keeping the same level of output in 2013; a few good releases a year and a couple of decent compilations, The Dirty Weekend Festival and possibly some more events in our local area.

Thanks folks!

Morffe - Today Was Bright EP coming soon!!

Morffe. You haven't heard Morffe? We want you to hear Morffe.

Something different, here at RAR we get very bored with sticking to just hardcore punk, raging anarcho and sweaty crust... it NEEDS to be diversified!

Anyway, a while back this band, Morffe, from our local area (dreary north Wales) popped out from nowhere and most of us kinda fell in love with the quirky bastards. They recorded a handful of songs and then decided to call it a day. "Too soon to be over lads" we cried, "way too soon, don't stop now" we pleaded! Anyway, they've decided to get back on it and it's grins all round.

And, they've let us here at RAR digitally release their 3 song EP. It's coming soon, and we'll let you know.

Whilst you're waiting, you can check them out here

Try them out, you just might like it.

Ask Questions Demand Answers - OUT NOW

Out 7/7/12 FREE DOWNLOAD from:

A compilation to raise awareness for the 2005 London Bombings Truth Campaign.

The London Bombings; issues surrounding this event cover a wide range of topics such as the restriction of civil liberties, the ever expanding war on terror, the increase of racist propaganda/general ignorance about the Muslim community, all of which wouldn’t have been anywhere near as bad without 7/7 and of course 9/11 before that.
There is vast quantities of debate and independent research on the topic, included in this compilation are some extra downloads which can serve as an introduction to the subject from the perspective of those who ask questions regarding the truth behind the official version of events.

The internet is rammed with websites and resources for the subject so we could endlessly list, so without us doing so check out which is regularly updated.
The most recent documentary and "safest" in our opinion is "7/7 Crime And Punishment" by Tom Secker, you can watch it here:

This compilation is dedicated to those who lost their lives on July 7th 2005 due to the bombings.

Anthony's Story

In April 2007, Anthony Ramsdale was involved in a horrific road traffic accident that changed his life beyond any recognition. The accident left him permanently brain damaged and in a coma for seven months.

Against all odds and after a massive battle with the authorities, Anthony was transferred to an ABI unit in Colwyn Bay, North Wales where he underwent and continues to undergo extensive rehabilitation in the hope that his standard of life can one day return to some sort of normality.

Anthony's family have been refused a benefit called DLA which would have given their son specialised transport. The reason given by the Government was that Anthony is not living on his own, with or without full time carers, or with his parents. The fact that this is totally impossible due to the severity of his brain damage and injuries cut no ice despite the family employing a solicitor to fight for their cause.

So it has been decided that the 'Anthony Ramsdale Appeal' will now step up a gear and endeavor to raise enough money to get the specialised vehicle themselves. They have recieved help from several Soul nights and other fundraising events and in February this year we helped them with a Punk Rock fundraiser featuring Flat Back Four, Chief, The Shuffle, Global Parasite and Ugly Fashion. Succesfully raising £570 on the night.

So this time we will be aiming to raise enough money to completely finish paying for the specialised vehicle and if theres any left over put it in the petrol tank and/or save it for MOTs, Insurance an all the rest of it!!

If you'd like to help out at all by giving flyers to friends or at other gigs you might go to between now and July 23rd, please get in touch.
