HAIR POLICE

Blind Kingdom

(Ultra Eczema - UE42) LP $24.75

An odd-colored carpet of bizarre 3-D fields dominate the bright and lurid psychedelic forests you'll have to run thru before gripping a mug of brew at the end of the trip. Hop on the back of a giant pink elephant and let go. Originally recorded as a radio special for Radio Centraal in Antwerp, this is a signif deviation from the Hair Police custom -- way more high bliss, blown-out delayed voice, and hardly any harshness. Packaged in a thick black-and-neon-blue eye-destroying covers with a psychic laser etch on the B-side. 180 grams, limited to 600.

Blow Out Your Blood

(Freedom From - FF0172) Used CD $5.00 (Out-of-stock)

A demonic wall of sound from 2002, straddling thrash metal and industrial noise.

CRYSTAL FANTASY / HAIR POLICE

Crystal Fantasy / Hair Police

(Liquid Death / Hello Pussy) Used Split 10-inch $4.00

Tracks by the Milwaukee quartet are from another world, “one where Lisa Frank designs come to life, roads are built of rainbows and the sky is illuminated by every color across the spectrum,” according to Adam Strohm. “Modulated vocals [and] synthesized squiggles cross a field of minimalist fluorescent electronics as tasteful effects accompany the dialogue,” after which Hair Police seem “positively ugly,” with their “mismatched pieces and sharp edges, shuddering oscillations [that] overpower static squeals…, sounds drown[ing] under sounds, and human screams [getting] swallowed in the polluted mix…. The two groups certainly share a determination to explore the far reaches…, [with] Crystal Fantasy drift[ing] into cartoon clouds and Hair Police writhing underground.”

HAIR POLICE

Drawn Dead

(Weird Forest) Used LP $12.00

Total oppressive heaviness, a slow suffocation of sick tones and blunt shrapnel. Guitar, drums, and electronics seriously overwhelm with grit and shadowy fuzz, lumbering through meanest tones, factory ambience, and disembodied moans in absolute darkness. A horrifying lump of old school tape noise sludge collage. Sealed

HAIR POLICE / VIKI

Hair Police / Viki

(Scratch And Sniff Entertainment) Used Split LP $8.00

A free-range roving donkey ride by the pride of the Damn Shame state, with squeaky beats, microphones up mouths, and zooming crunch — easily regarded as equal to the minimal electronic splurt of lo-fi speaker technicians like Suicide and Wolf Eyes — backed with calorie-burning crunch by your Lexington heroes, where Fischer Price toys are taken apart and amplified, guitars hammer tacks, and drums tie shoes. With inserts. Light blue vinyl. Silkscreened cover. Edition of 300.

HAIR POLICE

Prescribed Burning

(Hospital) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

A heavy, desolate, late-night set that moves into the kind of single-sonic-event in a Saragossa of tension style of NNCK while reflecting on aspects of early Throbbing Gristle, Nord et al. Bleak, extended smears of nightmare tone. Silkscreened jackets. Edition of 500.

HAIR POLICE

Stay In Bodies

(Harbinger Sound) Used LP $45.00

“Their ability to make lo-fi shit noise sound so miserably slow and fierce is admirable,” reckons Freak Animal. “It sounds like neither drone, nor sludge. No Sunn O))), no standard harsh noise. It’s hardly ‘music’, yet they do play something…. On the B-side, very tasty and most roughest tape manipulations! Should have been longer.” Released as a tour LP. Edition of 100
