FORESEEN 'Power Intoxication b/w Dying Spirit' 7"

Finland's finest foremost thrashband Foreseen return after their crushing Helsinki Savagery LP with a two song 7" taking their metallic crossover style to new hardcore punk territory ala Cro Mags. Throbbing breakdowns and guitar screams punch through a cacophony of cymbals and snare rolls as drummer Marten Gustafsson channels the precision blasting of legends like Phil 'Philthy Animal' Taylor and Dave Lombardo. All this plus a classic 80s heavy metal production. Their recent tours across the USA and Europe have only strengthened their abilities to deliver ornate punishment riff after riff. You'll be flipping this 7" until your needle breaks.

This is QCHQ - 030. Each vinyl comes with a lacquered glossy sleeve with thumbcut and risographed insert like those 80s style heavy metal 7"s we know and love. For customers and wholesalers in North America, check out Triple B Records who are doing the North American version.

NIGHT FORCE 'Against the Grain' 7"

Debut 7" from this German/Belgian/Danish powerhouse hardcore punk unit from Mannheim, Germany. The 7" sounds as mystical as the demo with tasteful use of chorus pedal to give off an almost UK goth punk guitar sound ala Deformed expertly blended with hardcore rhythms which at times give off Omegas style catchy vibes. Featuring members of Domain, True Vision and Arms Race.

This is QCHQ - 029. Each vinyl comes with a 3mm spined sleeve and hand stamped and risographed insert, so every copy is unique.

OCTOBER 2016
BAD MANIFEST 'S/T' 7"

"Slashing and snarling out of North Yorkshire town Harrogate, comes Bad Manifest. Three young skate punks raised on DIE KREUZEN, VOID and BONES BRIGADE videos, who have created a unique sound of deranged, raw, outsider hardcore punk. While influences from the weirder side of early 80's US hardcore shine through, there's also a dark anarcho underbelly to this beast. Bad Manifest have clearly witnessed the intensity of UK bands of recent years like PERSPEX FLESH, MOB RULES and NO and filtered it into their adolescent skate core brains. However, the way this thing is composed makes it no re-hash. Reverb riddled vocals and chorus soaked guitars meet rolling bass lines and catchy, eclectic drum beats. And to boot there's timing changes that will confuse the pit and excite you into a pogo frenzy! Listen to this on repeat while you're skating curbs then go home and cry yourself to sleep because you wish you could have written a record like this when you were 17!" (Bryan Suddaby)

This is QCHQ - 021 and a split release with the exquisite Reagent Records. We have 150 copies so grab them whilst you can! Keeping it simple with a risographed hand glued sleeve.

NO TOLERANCE 'You Walk Alone" LP

8 years after an impromptu afternoon jam that resulted in their first writing and recording session, and 4 years since their last record, No Tolerance return to deliver the straight edge hardcore album the youth and young-at-heart have been waiting for. Unchanged by the unstoppable march of time, You Walk Alone finds the band still able to mine the same territory as always, but formatted for the ebb and flow of a full length album. Expect a meticulous alloy of "Break Down the Walls", Confront's "Payday", and the Hard Stance E.P.s.

QCHQ is releasing this sure to be a banger STRAIGHT EDGE anthem filled torpedo bonzer for Europe, alongside Painkiller Records who will be doing this release Stateside. Expect an LP of such immense BOSTON HARDCORE mosh magnitude that many will spontaneously combust in their camo shorts from high jump fury. The Euro edition comes in a 350gsm laminated card sleeve, with an equally thick poster insert and download code.

JUNE 2015
PURE DISGUST 'Chained' 7"

Washington, DC's best and brightest, Pure Disgust, returns with their second EP, Chained. Blistering hardcore punk is the name of the game here, but with the added melodic elements of UK77 to keep things catchy. Certainly, this is their strongest recorded material. What makes Pure Disgust truly exceptional, however, is the lyrical content, which channels the collective suffering and frustrations of Black America in a time of 21st Century Slavery. Despite overlapping territories and intertwined history, the punk political mind, blinders on, is devoid of any substantive critique of perhaps the most pressing issue(s) in America today, so be grateful for Pure Disgust for making you uncomfortable with your place in society and what it means for Others.

After a highly-regarded demo and debut 7" EP, QCHQ is proud to jump on this bandwagon and do a split with Katorga Works from the USA for Pure Disgust’s second 7”. This definitely reminds the listener of Teen Idles mixed with Effigies and Iron Cross, which is right up our street. The sleeve is a glue pocket with a special custom notch cut out the back.

Four diasporic ragers based in London release 6 songs of fast fury at the state of the nation. After a positive response to the demo released early 2011, STAB continue to look back at 80s UK Hardcore whilst dissecting the now, turning their backs on the current wave of whinging punk prophesying end times to justify inaction and indifference. Bringing their cultural backgrounds together amidst recent events such as riots, failed protests and the isolationism of their island home, STAB attempts to pierce both soundwaves and minds with this record. Fans of loud, fast noise take note!

Crazy Spirit Remastered Demo 12"


QCHQ presents Crazy Spirit's Demo Tape '09 remastered and edited by Steve Rooke at Abbey Road Studios onto a solid slab of 12". A screenprinted mailer and hand stamped innersleeve conceal the secrets within. Feast your gaze onto a vision of nefarious colour as a poster-sized screenprinted beast unfolds and envelopes your mind, and the music starts to take you underground...

Spawned from the concrete, steel, garbage fluid and tar of New York City natives, Crazy Spirit presents not a demonstration of a series of concise ruminations on life, that seemingly impose order with beginnings and ends, but a constantly mutating chimera, the monotonous screaming of millions of parasitical beings crawling through the many layers of this urban nest they have built to enslave themselves in. These are variations on a theme by urban strigils scraping away the extraneous chatter to identify repetitive patterns and weave them together. Hear yea the booming Crisis marching of a cool death or the sarcastic melody of snakes all compered by a Paul Mahernesque hyena.
