The Beach Impediment Records Fall 2019 releases are finally available to the public! In addition to those absolute gems being ripe for taking after a slew of delays (go fucking figure), a few out of print titles (some for only a little while and others for a long while) are available once again as well! There's also some information that will make the more fashionable among you absolutely giddy! Read on for more on all that:
HAIRCUT - SENSATION EP
After turning some heads with their debut 7" entitled "SHUTTING DOWN" released on the high quality Feel It Records label back in 2017, HAIRCUT have finally unleashed their follow up with the "SENSATION" EP. Four tracks of pummeling hardcore punk that retain the velocity and ferocity of the band's previous output whilst adding a decisive dose of meat and potatoes to the sonic formula, all the while Juliana belts out lyrics in both Spanish and English at a feverish pace. As we collectively sit on the cusp of entering the 2020's within a matter of months, HAIRCUT is a wonderful reminder that when it's done with equal parts precision and passion there's just no room for the gimmicks, posturing or other eye roll inducing baggage that tends to afflict the genre of hardcore punk, be it regionally or internationally. Such purity can stand on its own two feet and present itself loud and proud which is something that all enthusiasts can take great delight in as this genre cascades into yet another decade of continuation. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve with art and layout done by Colombian punk artist Juan Sebastian Rosillo. Limited to 500 copies.
There are 100 copies on BLUE VINYL for mailorder while they last!
LARMA - S/T LP
Can one ever have enough quality mangel in their life?! Beach Impediment is proud to not only be handling the North American pressing of this bombastic debut by Sweden's LARMA but to also answer that lingering question with a resounding "HELL NO!" Considering the folks in this band have been responsible for a large portion of the top tier raging hardcore punk to come from the greater Scandinavian area via their previous endeavors in the likes of SKITKIDS, HERÄTYS, INFERNÖH and loads more over the past couple decades, it's not even remotely surprising that the contents of this 12" are a remarkable regional tutorial sorts worked into a proper ass kicking from start to finish. Eleven tracks of kang punk hysteria that is not for the faint of heart. Each record comes in a UV gloss jacket featuring cover art by the band's own Jonas Pungen. Limited to 500 copies.
There are 100 copies on CLEAR VINYL for mailorder while they last!
Europeans! Please order this from ADULT CRASH in Denmark if you haven't already.
LOOSE NUKES - BEHIND THE SCREEN EP
United by the confounds of the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, LOOSE NUKES is truly an East meets West hardcore punk detonation of immense proportions. Consisting of one half of Pittsburgh's late great BLOOD PRESSURE along with other residents of the Quaker State that have served time in the likes of SICKOIDS, DARK THOUGHTS and countless other Philadelphian greats over the years, the pedigree is undeniable and, as one would guess, the tunes themselves are high caliber in both their composition and raw delivery. "BEHIND THE SCREEN" is eight tracks of smoldering hardcore punk in just over nine and a half minutes. If you're looking for some kinda new spin on the olde wheel, it might be best to just keep walking / scrolling / etc. But if ya got a hankerin' for well executed hardcore punk, well shit bud, you've arrived! Each record comes in a double sided fold out sleeve a la the Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers - Furious Party 7" adorned with art by resident Nukes crooner Jim Shomo.
There are 100 copies on PURPLE VINYL for mailorder while they last!

Plus, I recently brought back the classic "BURN OUT SURFER DUDE" T-Shirt design for one more run in that format AND did some tote bags as well. Quantities on those are a bit depleted from the initial rush on them a couple weeks back so if ya want one of em ya might wanna get on that soon.
There ain't too much else to report... got a few projects in the works that may or may not see light by the end of this year. If so you'll be hearing from me before the ROARIN' 20's (Part Two) go into effect but if not, I'll see y'all in the next decade with more hardcore punk junk!!!
Enjoy the autumn!
