Unless You Try Records Exclusive: Samiam - "You Are Freaking Me Out (Remastered)" on PINK vinyl /100

We are very excited to announce that we are selling the remastered vinyl version of our favourite record ever...Samiam's "You Are Freaking Me Out"!!!

The record that followed their breakthrough LP "Clumsy", "YAFMO" almost never got released at all as Atlantic unceremoniously dropped the band from their roster citing, among other things, songs which didn't fit with Atlantic's desired direction!!! HAHA!!! "Full On", "She Found You", "Factory", "Good Enough"...The tracks on this LP are among some of the greatest melodic punk tunes EVER written (and that's coming from someone who ranks Leatherface's "Mush" as a close second!), and this remastered version gives them that added oomph for vinyl that they thoroughly deserve! First released some 15-odd years ago, this essential record has been given a full worldwide vinyl release (previously only available on wax from Bitzcore) and we are lucky enough to have an exclusive colour...100 copies only on PINK wax...YUM!

Shipping in mid-April, we have put the pre-order up in our webstore here. But be quick...we don't expect these to last long!

Gameface update!!!

It has certainly been a while since my last post, so here goes:

First off, how great is this?

Yup, amongst other bands, Gameface is reforming for Revelation Records' 25-year Anniversary shows. Jeff & the guys will be dusting off some of their catchiest hits & bringing the Glass House to it's knees on June 7th. After that 'Day In June', there are tentative plans for Gameface to play more shows in the US - very exciting - so we will keep you updated as we hear more!

Now that you're wanting more info, why not 'like' the bands new & improved Facebook page over at to keep up-to-date with everything GF!

Happy days :-)))
