DIÄT - Pick The Line 7" & TOTAL CONTROL shirt out now!

For your nearest and ear-est, we have a thing: Photobucket
DIÄT - Pick A Line/No Accent 7" (LUNGS-031)
Rarely does an unsolicited email even raise an eyebrow but No Accent and Pick A Line really knocked us over. Expertly tight catchy drumming, cold as ice monotone pitch perfect post-punk vocals and a rhythm section that would make James Brown mush-mouthier with jealousy. Sorta sounds like "Mesh & Lace" MODERN ENGLISH playing CRISIS covers but with smarter lyrics. We heard a rumor that DIÄT formed with the sole purpose of playing with TOTAL CONTROL in Berlin, where they're from. I could believe the story since 2/3 of the band are actually Australian but I choose not to because the songs are too good to be so casual about. This band will do great things starting now. ILR is proud to debut this power trio to the world.
You can buy it at:
and if you need to hear it first check out:

We are also proud to announce the dawning of our own brand of apparel. We made a bunch of TOTAL CONTROL shirts with a crisp FEEDING design on the front so that our people can now look as good as they feel.
Only available at:

And lastly, the KIM PHUC lp has been repressed and is available now on light blue vinyl.

MUTANT VIDEO plays on a birthday roof

Seattle is better for having these dudes in it. Movin' on up!
pssst. "Head Scan" Part Two will be out by the end of this month. Stay tuned.

SLICES mentioned in a glossy magazine

Spin Magazine mentioned ILR alumni SLICES in this article. Somehow, they forget to mention Ovens. Probably for "legal" reasons, right guys? We are pleased that our people can appear in the same magazine that had Eminem dressed in Clockwork Orange gear crying in a milk glass. Huzzah! Put on your monocles and viddy well.
