Release Discriptions:

OVER MY DEAD BODY/TIME X - split 7"
This 7" should have come out quite some time ago, but due to various delays it took for ever to get released. Over My Dead Body do 3 tracks, one being a cover of No Reply's "Still Fucking Pissed," and Time X do 4 tracks. Time X are from Portugal and Over My Dead Body are from California, USA. Both bands play straight edge youth crew style hardcore. Straight Edge pride! (Phyte Records #23)

GOOD CLEAN FUN - Straight Outta Hardcore CD
Good Clean Fun are at it again with ten tracks of high energy straight edge hardcore designed to get the kids smiling and going nuts. Straight Outta Hardcore is serious, humorous, fun, and totally positive. Definitely putting the fun back into straight edge hardcore. They do a solid cover of Youth of Today's "No More" and generally just get the positive energy flowing. Positive go!! (Phyte Records #25)

SOMMERSET - Fast Cars, Slow Guitars CD
Hailing from New Zealand, Sommerset tear out thirteen tracks of fast melodic rockin' hardcore with plenty of melody and catchy vocals. In the same genera as Lifetime, or Daltonic. Poppy and upbeat. (Phyte Records #29)

CHAMPION - Come Out Swinging CD
Seven tracks of blazing melodic straight edge hardcore Champion. The sound is really well done, and they do a kick ass cover of Dag Nasty's "1 to 2" which fits perfectly in their set. Champion is full of straight edge hardcore pride, but they seem to be thinking smart. Good stuff for those that love the more melodic youth crew. (Phyte Records #43)

FIELDS OF FIRE - Keep It Alive CD
Skatepunks go! Eight new tracks of energetic So Cal youth crew from Fields of Fire. Their new tracks are better than ever and they kick it out with plenty of attitude. Politics and skatecore pride combined together to make their mark; having fun but trying to stay sharp. Keep It Alive also includes the 7 tracks from their debut 7". (Phyte Records #28)

AFFRONT - People Who Live In Glass Houses CD
Hailing from Washington, D.C. Affront put together their first full-length release. The music is hard and fast but with lots of melody and catchy elements. The songs are very melodic, but Affront never loses their fast aggressive attack. The energy level runs really high, and the singing is shouted with plenty of sing-a-long parts and even the occasional 7 Seconds style oohh and ahhh chorus parts. Catchy. (Phyte Records #24)

DALTONIC - Radio On CD
Taking parts from punk, hardcore, and good ol' American rock and roll, Daltonic put together a melodic yet powerful record with emotional singing. Straight up rock. Straight up roll. Straight up Daltonic. (Phyte Records #21)

KILL THE MESSENGER - Five On Seven 7"
As you might have guessed this 7" has five tracks from Kill The Messenger. I was pleasantly surprised by Kill The Messenger's kick ass attack. Their sound is very reminiscent of Blast! influenced Black Flag style hardcore without sounding too much like their influences, and without the metal indulgence. The songs are all quite good and anyone that likes power hardcore will dig these songs. Apparently, Kill The Messenger also had a 10" out on Indecision Records. Great stuff. (Phyte Records #19)

GOOD CLEAN FUN - On The Streets Saving The Scene... CD
Good Clean Fun's much anticipated new LP is now available on CD. On The Streets... features 11 tracks of fun and sarcastic youth crew hardcore that is influenced by Minor Threat and the Gorilla Biscuits. Good Clean Fun is all about solid hardcore, plenty of choruses, a healthy dose of melody, and having a good time; fun and energetic. (Phyte Records #20)

GOOD CLEAN FUN - On The Streets Saving The Scene... LP
Good Clean Fun's much anticipated new LP is now available. The LP comes in 4 different versions. Each version has a different cover, labels, and insert. The first 3 versions are limited to 1,000 copies and the 4th version will be the one that is reprinted. All versions have the same songs and music! Version one looks like a crust record, version two looks like an emo record, version three looks like a death metal record, and version four looks like a youth crew hardcore record. On The Streets... features 11 tracks of fun and sarcastic youth crew hardcore that is influenced by Minor Threat and the Gorilla Biscuits. Good Clean Fun is all about solid hardcore, plenty of choruses, a healthy dose of melody, and having a good time; fun and energetic. (Phyte Records #20)

COMMITTED - One Chance CD
Fourteen straight edge hardcore songs from Cleveland's Committed. The style is distinctly influenced by Youth Of Today and Judge. The recording is powerful, the songs are well written, and anyone that likes '88 style youth crew will be impressed by Committed's ode to youth crew hardcore. Positive go! (Phyte Records #17)

SOOPHIE NUN SQUAD - The Devil, The Metal, The Big Booty Beats CD
Combine the high jinks of the Big Boys, Doggy Style, and Pee Wee Herman with the whacked influences of Dungeons & Dragons and the Never Ending Story and then throw in some fast adrenaline pumpin' hardcore and the Hair soundtrack and what you end up with is an incredibly unique band called Soophie Nun Squad. Eight people coming together to have fun, dance, laugh and sing. Twisted, fun, and very, very different. (Phyte Records #18)

GOOD CLEAN FUN - picture disk 7"
Limited to 2,000 copies this picture disk features Good Clean Fun doing two tracks. The first is an alternate version of "Victory Records Sucks" from Good Clean Fun's upcoming LP, and the flip side song is a cover of "Let's Go Crazy" which was originally performed by Prince. Yeah, Prince. The picture disk image is inspired by Prince's Purple Rain LP, and well it is all in good fun, naturally. A definite release for the collectors. (Phyte #16)

GOOD CLEAN FUN - Who Shares Wins 7"
The cover color has been changed for the 4th pressing of Who Shares Wins. The new covers are purple (as they were supposed to be originally) instead of red. The same fun filled songs in a new cover. Watch for the new Good Clean Fun LP coming early in 2000 with nothing less than 4 different covers to chose from! (Phyte #11)

GOOD CLEAN FUN - Shopping For A Crew CD
Combining the three songs from the out of print Shopping With A Crew 7", the five songs from the Who Shares Wins 7", and two new songs for a total of ten fun filled tongue-in-cheek hardcore tunes. Good Clean Fun gives straight edge a sarcastic kick in the ass. In a nut shell, the Good Clean Fun discography. (Phyte #14)
