23.10.2015 // Concrete Jungle Record's history is a story of growth: Its logo could first be seen on REJECTED YOUTH's EP "No Police State Coalition" (released via the affiliated label MSM1279) in 2004 - back, then it was purely a mail order and online shop. One year later, in March 2005, it opened a record store in Nuremberg's hip quarter Gostenhof.
But that was not enough. Two years later, when the label MSM1279 closed down, its entire catalogue was taken over by Concrete Jungle Records. This marked the day Concrete Jungle Records officially started acting as an independent record label. In 2007 the record store closed as well, and the focus shifted entirely to its work as a label, which laid the foundation for the many releases and new projects it would see in the future.
Since its founding, the label almost had 100 releases and worked together with lots of young and ambitious bands, as well as well-known and long-established acts from Germany, France, England, Sweden and the US. Among them are ADOLESCENTS, AUTHORITY ZERO, BURNING LADY, DEATH BY STEREO, GOODBYE FAIRGROUND, GUERILLA, MODERN PETS, NO FUN, REJECTED YOUTH, SHARK SOUP, SMOKE BLOW, THE GENERATORS, THE TURBO A.C.‘s, TOTAL CHAOS, VAL SINESTRA, VENEREA, VERSUS THE WORLD, and many more.
Now, Concrete Jungle Records is celebrating its 10 year anniversary and will present a selection of 20 artists with two songs each - for everyone who wants to dig into the label's history and also check out its newest releases. The exclusive compilation "Concrete Jungle Records - 10 Years Punk & Hardcore" is available as a digital download for an absolutely killer price. 20 bands, 40 songs, 120 minutes.
23.10.2015 // A fantastic cocktail of the bizarre and tainted sides of the true force of Rock 'N' Roll's more evil face. THE MURDER BROTHERS ... yes, that's the family name for this true and deliciously non caring but happy band of crazed musical misfits.
Featuring a heady mix of P. Paul Fenech‘s musical and technical mastery and infamously unequaled guitar skills (indeed instrumental prowess never stopping at the boundaries of mere guitar playing) blended with the psychosis of Carlo Snake and the unnerving but oh so real presence of brother Angible Flesh and sweet but deadly sister Mazz Murder and the mutant child prodigy Baby Carlino Murder and the truly detached (as in actually without a body) Brother Ed murder.
“The Murder Gospels Volume One” is not for the the faint hearted or small minded… and it will destroy or at the very least disturb you... but it will get you and kick your soul about… MURDER MURDER MURDER.
The album will be release via Mutant Rock Records (Concrete Jungle Records / Edel) as special CD Digipak edition and lim. colored 12" LP October 30th, 2015.
OCTOBER IS PIZZA MONTH. NO FUN DELIVERS YOUR FAVORITE PIZZA ANTHEM!
30.09.2015 // Most things are celebrated on one day only. Pizza, however, has a whole month!
In October 1984, Gerry Durnell, the founder of „Pizza Today“ magazine, invented the National Pizza Month in the US. Why October? Simply because the first issue of „Pizza Today“ came out in October that year.
Of course, nowadays Pizza is (still) much loved by so many people that every month could be considered Pizza Month. And every day could be considered Pizza Day. At least that's what garage punk band NO FUN believes in – and so they wrote the ultimate and unique Pizza anthem: The “Pizzasong“.
„Pizzasong“ is taken from the current debut album „How I Spent My Bummer Vacation“ on Asset Discos / Concrete Jungle Records.
„Pizzasong“ is also available for free download now (valid until October 31st):
16.09.2015 // As of today NO FUN will be touring through Germany, Belgium and France together with HOSPITAL JOB from Illinois, USA. The first stop today in Berlin is also one of their two album release shows. So be there or be square!
And finally this Friday, September 18th NO FUN‘s auspicious debut record "How I Spent My Bummer Vacation" will be available nearly everywhere via Concrete Jungle Records / Asset Discos as CD, lim. colored splatter 12" vinyl and digital download. Uglypunk.de is definitely right, calling NO FUN an insiders‘ tip. So don‘t miss them on their current tour!

Their music can be compared with THE BRONX’s fierce energy, the rock’n’roll of VALIEN THORR, spiced up with a little bit of BLACK FLAG’s anger. Paired with German lyrics, VAL SINESTRA’s sound escalates in an energetic and diverse hardcore rock’n’roll show.
It’s a show for everyone who simply wants to freak out and explode. And even if people just shake their heads in disagreement or flip them off, VAL SINESTRA doesn’t give a fuck and shouts out what is hidden in the very last corner of your mind.
Nothing dramatic, no distractions - VAL SINESTRA’s music is blasting straight from the stage to the audience’s head and feet!
