*New and Re-Stocked Insurgence Records Releases, The Redskins „Epilogue“!

We got a big package from Insurgence Records on Friday. The highlights being The Oppressed double CD „Wont Say Sorry,“ the new Hold a Grudge CD, as well as two important re-stocks in the form of the Fighting Chance LP „Sacrifice and Struggle“ and the complete works of one of North Americas first leftist skinhead bands, the legendary The Press.

All of this is exciting enough, but the definite icing on the cake is the „new“ REDSKINS CD „Epilogue.“ If you dont know *and* love the Redskins, the band who „walked like The Clash and sang like The Supremes,“ then I suggest you stop reading right now and either invest 13€ in the CD, or at least go look for some free songs of theirs online. Not only were they pioneers of this madness we call the „redskin subculture,“ they were politically solid through and through and musically few bands have ever even come close to them. On this particular CD, you can listen in awe at such hard to get classics as „Unionize,“ „Lean on Me,“ and „It Can Be Done.“

(The Redskins, being traditional MLers of the party variety, would certainly not approve of the person who made this videos choice of pictures, but whatever…)

*Meet the first three jackets of the fall collection. If all goes well, they will be online and deliverable as of 27.10…so in EXACTLY 30 days…

The classic „Red Heat“ Black sweatjacket, in slightly revised look…

The 100% cotton reversible hooded sweatjacket, this time royal blue/black.

The reversible hooded waterproof jacket. One side black and waterproof, the other red and cotton.

*CNT Fest in Metz, October 2nd-3rd-4th

We know, theres really waaaaay to much on offer this coming weekend (the demonstration in Brussels in the context of the No Border Camp, the demonstration in Bremen, the squatters demonstration in the Netherlands…) but still. The annual CNT festival in Metz is always worth the visit. In all honesty, it already began last week with a series of debates, concerts, and film screenings, but for us it is concentrated this weekend with…
-Concerts from Friday to Sunday, highlights include antifascist hardcore from Russia from WHAT WE FEEL, polit hiphop from SKALPEL, very classic ska from LOS 3 PUNTOS, and the beloved STAGE BOTTLES. The list is of course highly subjective, there are in total 11 bands playing!

-A demonstration on Saturday afternoon to the offices of the „Medef“ (the bosses lobby organization in France).

-Debates and discussions througout the weekend, and a collective eating of couscous on Sunday for Lunch. :-)

*In no the „posing around“ category, although it does really makes us happy…In the last few weeks, aside from the usual orders to Germany, we have sent packages to: Canada, USA (Wisconsin!), Singapore, France, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Czech Rep., Spanish State, Russia, Switzerland, and Austria! Woooo.

    Can you guess what the new jackets will cost?

    100% exactly no, because we havent calculated yet calmly all the costs besides the actual making of the jacket (designing, samples, shipping, promo material, etc.), but most likely they will be a bit cheaper than in previous years…made possible by the large quantities we ordered.

    We have to see if it is realisitic, but the objective is to get the reversible jacket at around 65-70€, instead of the 80€ upwards that they used to cost.

    The normal sweatjackets hopefully somewhere in the 40-50€ range…whereas they cost 55€ in the past.
