X - X-Spurts LP (UP053)
Before their legendary debut LP, X recorded a demo session-- ten tracks of incredibly tense, desperate Australian punk then somehow forgotten for the next 35 years. Absolutely essential stuff for fans of the era, coming across like nothing so much as a berserk mix of "Pink Flag", early Black Flag and the toughest early AC/DC, or Gang Of Four as played by belligerent Australian drunks.
37 years on, Ugly Pop presents the first ever vinyl appearance of this seminal document.
X - X-Aspirations LP (UP054)
The Sydney band's 1979 debut is one of the all-time great Australian records, a devastatingly tough yet diverse album featuring 14 tracks of superb punk rock, equal parts wiry tension and savage release. This antipodean classic has fallen out of print again in recent years but should always be available, so Ugly Pop is pleased to announce that we'll be reissuing it with new insert.
