Damn you, Corona.

Hey y’all, it’s official. In DC, stores like Smash will be dormant for the next month. If you wanna help the shop out, please visit Discogs.com/seller/smashdc or eBay.com/str/smashDC Also, the gift certificate “with 10% interest if redeemed on RSD” deal is still in effect if you call the shop today at 202-38-SMASH. Anywho, stay safe and we’ll see you in the future.

Gift Certificate deal.

19 March 2020

Are you a record fiend that is stuck at home with all your vinyl, but still desire more? Do you long to support the small business model? And do you like deals? Well Smash has got one for you. If a gift certificate is purchased in March 2020, then the recipient will receive 10% interest if redeemed on/after #RecordStoreDay, which is now scheduled in June. We can even do this deal over the phone so face to face interaction is totally unnecessary. Incredible I know! Call 202-38-SMASH for more details.

united mutation: 1st 2 7″s on a cd

images-21.jpegDSI Archives (finally) reissues both United Mutation 7″s on a handy dandy CD. FLEX says “Like most DSI releases, this is a bit different from the typical DC hardcore. Wild & ultrafast hardcore with some really weird guitar riffs and a crazy singer. Strange, intense, unique. The Rainbow Person 7″ is a lot more experimental than the debut, screaming singer, weird guitar sounds, lots of reverb. It’s still hardcore, but then again.. it’s not. Interesting.” An argument could be made that the first use of “crust” vocals was by U.M.
