Demolition Derby started as a singles-only label, so when I tried my hand at albums I thought I needed another label & to remain in the true Scientists spirit, I decided to call it NITRO! Later I found out there was someone else with a lot more money than me, that had a NITRO Records label. Yeah, I know technically it ain't completely the same but I could/can tell that people get confused.

I used the 'NITRO' part also for the catalog numbers, which I'll continue to do & I don't wanna drop it completely cos that'll confuse people even more, so what seemed the best is to refer to the label as 'Demolition Derby/NITRO!'.
Got any better suggestions? You can always let me know.

If you dug their D.Derby 7" (& their other releases), you'll find plenty of your liking here, but there's also some more balanced songs, with maybe a Minutemen touch. This is the band of guitarist Tony Fate, who previously played in the early 80's punkband the Sins & these days in the Bell Rays. The Bell Rays have actually covered several Grey Spikes songs from this album on their own records ("stupid fuckin' people" & "chemical"), so here's your chance to check out the originals.

The Leg Hounds : s/t lp
Smokin’ rock & roll/punk rock from the rock hotbed of Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

The Master Plan : Colossus of Destiny lp-only
Rock&roll supergroup including Andy Shernoff from the Dictators,Keith Streng & Bill Milhizer from the Fleshtones & Paul Johnson of Waxing Poetics. A bit of rootsy-ness, a swig of booziness, and a blast of fun from The Hop. Playful rock & roll with a serious attitude. Make no mistake: this "side project" had to happen, and the boys are in the hands of destiny. 13 tracks, 8 originals, 5 covers (incl Eastern Dark cover), 12 vocal songs, 1 instrumental, 100 % rock&roll

Nitro24
Morticia's Lovers : smash the radio lp-only
their 4th album with previous releases on Mad Driver(it) & Zaxxon(Canada).. 13 (incl a vinyl only bonustrack) pure snooty wild and degenerate punk rock songs, including two great covers of MINOR ’77 CLASSIC SONGS (Dead in the Suburbs from Los Reactors & Alcoholiday from The Kaos) that highlight – if we still need it - in which measure the only real punk rock it’s worth recovering is 77’s.Buzzcocks, Kids, Dickies & Chuck Berry are cheek to cheek but with a revolver in the holster...the perfect album for your next RnRoll party high alchool !

Nitro25
The Chronics : suggested for mature audiences lp-only
followup to their debutalbum "it's too late" which got rave reviews all over.11 tracks,including Bo Diddley & Stooges covers,a bit louder & stronger than their previous material but still with as many catchy hooks.They have been compared to the Heartbreakers,Real Kids,Zeros & Registrators & this album is a perfect mix of all of those.

NITRO26
Jet Boys : Jet Patrol lp-only
Exclusive vinyl version of the Japan-only cd release with new artwork. 17 tracks (incl the "hidden" track).
"Buckle your seatbelts.the Jet Boys are the long-standing dukes of Japanese pervo punk and never fail to impress with their revved up junkie rock and over-the-top graphic identity...a Japanese Mad Magazine punk combo with cool Johnny Thunders guitar licks and damn-the-torpedoes-full-speed-ahead attitude....willfully stupid Ritalin rock for you hyperactive children with expense accounts" (JH-MRR May 2004).

NITRO27
MHz : Harness the power! lp-only
MHz audio sample Exclusive vinyl version of the Flying Bomb cd release.
MHz is a powertrio from Michigan including Andy Claydon (Flying Bomb co-label boss & ex-Monarchs) & Don Blum (Von Bondies) mixing up the best parts of the Ripoff sound with the Amrep sound,inserting healthy doses of garage & even including a couple of choice instro's.Imagine a mix of the Chinese Millionaires & Tar or a noise/punk version of Man or Astroman?.
"Wow! Have you ever heard a punk song with a Led Zepplin "whole lotta love" style extendo noise part? Mhz has accomplished that in a three minute tune! But don't think that pigeon holes their sound. They take on all sorts of styles,giving each song it's own identity.They tend to deliver punchy, rhythmic riffs with a Nomeansno styled funky bass.Yeah,that Nomeansno influence comes through,as does that of the Minds and the Minutemen.This excellent disc features all their recordings from 2000 and 2001.Get it!" (HM) Maximumrocknroll

NITRO28
Skip Jensen : Abscond lp-only

This is without question Skip's best stuff yet!! Flat out wailin' and stompin, riled up and volatile; these songs burn! A soul ripped out, soaked in gasoline then thrown on to barbeque to it's right degree of burntness.(Delta Pop Music website).

NITRO30
Camaro Rouge : got a crane in my head lp-only
you can find 4 mp3's of the album on their myspace site : Camaro Rouge
.

Dual female vocals combining the pop sensibilities of the Ponys or Angry Angles with a Headcoatees/A-lines like garagepunk approach & even inserting some cool rockabilly licks & all culminating into the mesmerizing trip of “guttermouth”A great garagepoppunk&roll record.

"Camaro Rouge is a Chicago rock supergroup of sorts: guitarist Sarah S. played in the Dishes and Cherry Rodriguez, Andrea J. used to play her hot pink electric bass in the Drapes, and drummer Arman Mabry is familiar from the Whiteouts and Hamicks. Together they've got a cool punk sound that borders on both metal and garage without picking up any of the bad habits.It's a treat to hear Sarah and Andrea chime in on tag team vocals. You could pick apart their influences all day, but it still comes out of the wash as plain rock n roll- and what's wrong with that. They are tighter than panty hose two sizes too small."

NITRO31
Jet Boys : Teenage Thunder Revisited lp-only
Their debut album for the first time ever on vinyl! It was reissued on cd in Japan last year & now here is a ltd ed 500 vinyl version including bonustracks & 2 vinyl-only tracks & new artwork from Japan’s kings of punk, the missing link between the Ramones & GG Allin!

NITRO32
Veines : Perdus dans la ville lp-only
"Killer French garage punk trio with a wild, raw sound that’s reminiscent of the classic Rip Off sound. VEINES play fast and feral and it’s got addictive melody that’s fierce and unpredictable. They have an underlying pure punk structure, a really classic punk rock sound of THE GAGS, STALAG, BUZZCOCKS, THE GEARS, THE VIBRATORS, THE ROTTERS, SHOCK etc blended with the raw and distorted garage punk of TEENGENERATE, THE INFECTIONS, THE OBLIVIANS etc…it’s just excellent and I thoroughly recommend this. This is the brazen, kick-in-the-balls punk we need in 2009…it’s just got it all for me: it’s fast, raw and impulsive – this shit makes you want to move. A lot of bands attempt this mix of garage / ’77 punk but fail to nail it as successfully as this…this is white fucking hot and you should know that because it’s on Demolition Derby and they always hit the nail right on the head. Get this, have a party and have some serious fucking fun. Definitely in the running for my record of the year." (No Front Teeth zine)

NITRO33
Veines : Bourgeois standard lp-only
Never change a winning team, so more of the same (so we could run the No Front Teeth review again) but still a little different,punque français that hasn't lost it's rebel touch,or "Take bands like The Lurkers and The Kids mix them with some Rip Off Records sounds, put them in France and voilà"(Underground Medicine)

NITRO34
The Gorgons : stuffed delice lp-only
The glorious return of the Gorgons to Demolition Derby,15 years after their “crab cake” ep. Hot on the heels of the issue of their unreleased album “Strip tease” on Hogmaw records,the Gorgons got back together,started playing again (ao at “Go sinner go” festival) and even decided to record an entire album with all new originals “Stuffed Delice”,which Demolition Derby now brings you for your pleasure. The band has lost nothing of their magic touch,they still mix the highlights of “Born Bad” with “Desperate Rock&Roll”,or a lot of Headcoatitude,tons of Cramps-a-billy and some wild instromania. The Gorgons previously also had releases on Dionysus,Weed and Vendetta Records.
