The G​.​D​.​P. E​.​P. (Ltd Ed. 7 inch)

by THE DOMESTICS

/
  • The G.D.P. E.P. (Piss Yellow 7" - 300 copies only) SOLD OUT!
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    1st press of 300 only. On lurid translucent piss yellow vinyl. Nice insert with lyrics etc. Each copy is hand-numbered and comes with a one-time download code (so you don't even need a turntable to play this fucker!). SOLD OUT!

    6 brand new tracks. A split release between Kibou Records and Runny Bum Records. Probably the only punk record you'll buy all year that name-checks French sociologist/philosopher, Pierre Bourdieu ('Culture Marines'), AND the current state of evolutionary progress ('I'm a Chimp') on the same piece of wax!

    The Domestics are usually compared to Discharge, Gauze, Ripcord, Out Cold, Black Flag, OFF!, Violent Arrest, Poison Idea, Minor Threat, Motorhead, Chaos UK, Dead Kennedys, and loads of other bands they may or may not sound like. Basically, this record is more of the same in your face hardcore punk they produced on the 'Keep it Lean' album but harder, nastier, faster and (in places) weirder. If you liked the album, you'll fuckin' love this!

    I'M TANKED! / IDIOT JAMBOREE / CULTURE MARINES / RAW NOISE / N-N-N-N-NERVOUS / I'M A CHIMP

    Once they're gone they're gone!

    Includes unlimited streaming of The G.D.P. E.P. (Ltd Ed. 7 inch) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

WHAT THE REVIEWERS ARE SAYING...yeah, like anyone gives a shit really!

"......there are albums released every day that spend many times the duration of The G.D.P. E.P. saying considerably less. Yes, this is a hardcore punk record, but I don’t simply mean that it’s ‘all about the message’; there are musical ideas here, plenty of them, and the songs are well-structured, with at least as much dramatic or narrative content as the average pop-song...these angry, political songs are paradoxically haiku-like in the simplicity and precision of their statements.

The arrangements on The G.D.P. E.P. have a lot of light and shade to them; it’s all pretty much flat out, but within the onward rush there are continual textural variations. Staccato riffs alternate with passages of thrash, or chunks of additive cross-rhythm; Paul Rhodes’ grinding overdriven bass steps out on its own to contrast with phrases of full guitar assault; transitional motifs take unexpected side-turnings into chromatic atonality. The full texture is a confection of ear-flaying abrasive beauty; no slave-mind shackles of taste or stylistic obedience restrain the magnificence of The Domestics’ full throated roar...this shit is tight, and there are no passengers in this band. Every player is totally on it, and their efforts are totally unified.

To be totally honest, much of the intellectual power of this EP will only become apparent on a close reading of the lyric sheet, but the precisely judged complexity of the surface noise is an effective signal that there’s more to it than meets the ear. This is not ‘street-punk’, a confused ball of inchoate resistance and drunken hedonism; this really is a piece of activism, one of the many small self-liberating interventions that make a revolution. This is a fucking weapon." [OLIVERARDITI.COM]

"This is a beast of an EP; 6 tracks of rampaging hardcore punk that fuses good old straight ahead UK punk with US hardcore. It has a certain Britishness about it, but at the same time there’s no denying there are wider influences to their sound, meaning that various bands and styles pop into my head as I listen to this, from a variety of eras and countries, but none I could pin down as really being an obvious comparison, and that’s a good thing. Gruff vocals with shouted back ups and feisty music make for an enjoyable listening experience, and one that has seen me give this repeated listens" [SUSPECT DEVICE 'ZINE]

"...hardcore rooted in early ‘80s American acts like POISON IDEA and tough late ‘80s NYHC with a dose of classic UK street punk. Methinks they’ve been around the block once or twice too, as lyrical content deviates from simple “fuck you, I’m punk” fare, opting instead for philosophy, evolution, and other more “grown up” topics..." [MAXIMUM ROCK 'N' ROLL]

"I was so pleased to see The Domestics’ live show match up to this vinyl. Singer James describes them as BLACK FLAG meets DISCHARGE, but if I throw in RIPCORD’s second album, punk trainspotters will know what I mean. The Domestics bash out angry and angular punk over an anvil of 21st century anarchist ire. The lyrics deal with the frustration born of grinding out an unsatisfying and unprofitable existence in modern times. But at least we have records like this to cheer us up" [ONE WAY TICKET TO CUBESVILLE 'ZINE #14]
