One of the best punk labels around has been resurrected. Sailor’s Grave Records – the sister
label to hardcore label Thorp – has been hibernating for the last year or so,
coming to life only once or twice to put out Mark Lind’s (Ducky Boys) latest or
give an update on Roger Miret.
Over the past month though, label
founder Andy King has announced four new records SGR is putting out: STITCH
HOPELESS AND THE SEA LEGS, BURNING STREETS, MOUTHGUARD and BEANTOWN BOOZEHOUNDS
– all great street punk bands, not too far from the sound of bands that have
also called Sailor’s Grave home at one time or another (The Welch Boys, Mad Sin
and Born to Lose, among others).
Even better is news that the label will be putting out a new album from
Boston horn-heavy, punk/R&B band THE KINGS OF NUTHIN. Almost makes up for year or two of
silence from the label.
