BMBC 017 -- League City 7" - League City was not a band… it was a time and place…As the story goes here at Bombay Cove, on a hot summer night in 2007, seven or so individuals got together in a garage in League City, Texas. A plan hatched to record some dub music featuring drums, guitar, bass, mic, trumpet, and home-rigged electronics. The result just eerie and cool enough that we had it cut to a LATHE Record by Peter King (New Zealand). Unplug yer face.


BMBC 018 -- Damage Pants "s/t" LP+download - 13 greasy, bombastic tracks by the sweatiest band in Austin. Garage Post-Thrash. Songs about: ATMs, halloween costumes, slow dancin', sudoku, windstorms, pricey concert tix, not knowing how to shoot, and a character from the film "Raw Deal", amongst other things. RIYL: Shellac, Karp, Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard... Some of the slickest artwork you will ever see! You want this, and we want you to have it.


BMBC 020 -- BMBC Number Twenty 10" compilation - A Sampler ten-inch CLEAR record that features an assortment of oddities that never quite made it off the ground. Recording projects, One-off bands, Rare recordings, and even music that was the backdrop for a news radio series. It's got those archival green sleeves. Super Limited!  (see original post for track listing)




BMBC 021 -- Y'ALL "Last Show Ever" 10" - A known commodity in the form of a hushed chimera around Austin.  Energetic boil-over of force, or a puerile satisfaction... you be the judge.   Either way, it destroys with rawness and you know it.   Noise rock three piece playing their last show. Four songs in and you'll be hooked, trust us.  We released this as BMBC 002, but this time it has 10 inches and a hole!  New Artwork to boot.



BMBC 022 -- Gil San Marcos "Domes" LP - The definitive recordings from Gil San Marcos, who spent a few years performing, touring, and cultivating the sound featured here. Gil San Marcos adheres to a strict no-instrument policy in creating hypnotic drones peppered with shards of feedback and modulated soundwaves. Ornamental escapism or deep dream mining. Domes is a COLORED VINYL 12" with silkscreened jackets, this splatter platter has two live recordings, six tracks in all.



BMBC 023 - Esbat (4-song) 7" - Intentional sickness from hoodoo ritual dudes.   Esbat is a small but furious power in the vein of Die Kreuzen or VSS. One half-Japanese guy, one Mexican guy, and a guy from China, they create a UN-of-post-hardcore feel. The four tracks on this cycle between driving-jangle, bombastic-force, or blissed-out drone... Energetic and balls-to-the-wall  




BMBC 024 -- Followed By Static / Bonnibonita 7" - An unbreakable 45 of garage boogie. Followed by Static are fast becoming major movers n shakers lurking the red river scene. While Bonnibonita is a new troupe of ladies, this being their first record. Both bands kick out the jams utilizing elements of oldschool swing, rock n roll, big beat, doo wop. The Decca label would be proud (or... they'd sue us).



BMBC 025 -- Broke Beads "Wave High" 12" - Beautiful instrumental indie pop tunes, or "when skaters get closer to 30 than 25." Comparisons at this point have ranged from Broken Social Scene and Tristeza, to “a more up-tempo Explosions in the Sky” or “early Thrill Jockey.” Side A is studio, Side B live. On siiiiick green vinyl. *We'll include audio files if you buy it from us.




BMBC 026 -- Hüsky  Düdes 1st EP - Grease-slick punk mixes old anthemic hardcore stuff like Black Flag and Misfits with and garage-y DC hardcore, sprinkle on a little east bay 90s sound.  Old Crow bones.   Honorific punk to the days of yore, but ripping off strings of shows here in the good ol' two-thousand and twelve.  5 tracks on this bad boy!




BMBC 029 -- PA.RTS "Greatest Hiss" 7" - Ethereal ambient and drone using instruments both traditional and home-built. PA.RTS shows include film or video accompaniment created exclusively by the band. 3 members constantly improvising live and even sampling available sounds at the shows and re-interpreting them. This colored vinyl 7" is 5 of the best tracks from their previous limited cassette-only releases.
