The Best Record You Never Knew Existed
Now is your chance to grab a copy of the elusive “Caro A-Go-Go” LP, a classic Hong Kong surf instrumental and garage rock masterpiece! King Star Echo was actually a Thai group, however, the band recorded and released this one top-notch Thai-Beat gem in swinging Hong Kong in 1966. Infested with twangy, acid-drenched guitar and demented, garage-a-delic organ, this lost artifact from the Far East will have enthusiasts of mid-Sixties Beat music going ape. The album opens with a raucous rendering of the Thai folk classic “Poo Yai Lee” and then blazes through more than a half-dozen surf and instrumental classics that will have fans of reverb drenched guitar in awe of the axe-wielding genius, Mr. V. Ruannark. King Star Echo’s renditions of “Bumble Bee”, “The Fugitive” and “Peter Gunn” blend perfectly the music of the West with the exotic temperament of the East rife with lysergic-infused guitar onslaughts. Demonstrating their ability to get primitive and deranged while still sounding like coherent musicians, for closers, the band treats us to some truly monstrous garage covers of the Kinks “You Really Got Me” and the Rolling Stones “Satisfaction”. This record will launch you into the crazed mid-Sixties Asian A Go-Go world you never knew existed. If you are into top-shelf weirdo exotica with a hint of psychedelia and distorted guitars, much in the vein of the Simla Beat records, Cambodian Rocks & the Thai Beat A Go-Go series, then this Bangcock rocker is for you!
Grab your barf bags, Fuck Knights newest release hurls 12 minutes of intoxicating psychedelic garage punk in your face! A Taste Of Puke, a 6 song EP by Minneapolis’ favorite miscreants is Go Ape! Records latest foray into vinyl immortality. Tossing garage roots into a kaleidoscopic mix of modern psychedelia and punk spirit, these trouble makers produce crafty tunes with slightly deranged arrangements that are more fun than a barrel of drunken monkeys. Do your record collection a favor and grab this 45 before it’s gone. It’s the best out-of-stomach experience your ears will ever have!

The newest Go Ape release has landed – and you are commanded to go-go grab it now!
NON-STOP A GO-GO APE! Three new instrumental ravers from the far east!
This out-of-this-world record features the extragalactic sounds of the Paralyz, Los Wakamonos and the Routes. Its perfect fusion of frequencies creates an implosion of ass-shakin’ sounds. Blast off with the spine-bending anthem “Spiral UFO” by the Paralyz. When it surfs the crests of your auditory canals you’ll jump to your feet and dance to the UFO beat. Hailing from Fukuoka, the Paralyz pack a sonic punch that demands non-stop movement. Go Ape is the first label with the requisite fortitude to commit these monsters to vinyl and we do so without reservation. Next up, Go Ape! alumni Los Wakamonos unleash a mega-ton of creepiness in their spine-tingling masterpiece “Jack Mayer.” Stationed in Kurashiki, this cosmic duo mixes primitive beats with fuzzy guitar textures to generate songs of monumental minimalist magnitude. You’ll flip when you play the flip of this two-sided monster, as the Routes titanic guitar epic “Mantohihi Mama” recalls Link Wray and Yardbirds era Jeff Beck at their brain bashing best. The Routes call Oita their home and have recently returned to the motherland after touring Europe and mainland Asia.
Discriminating ears agree – it’s SAIKO!
To “Go Ape” involves more than just twangin’ hard on a guitar, though that is what the Go Ape! roster has done well, since 2005. But none better (or tougher, faster or greasier) than these new Brooklyn “Pizza Punks,” LITTLE SEIZURES!
Like, brand new. Like they just strapped on their R’n’R weapons mid-2011, slayed a few dive stages, bespoiled a studio in January, then Go Ape went and had Crypt Records’ outta-his-head honcho, Tim Warren, master this debut single. Four anti frills, fuzz-git ragers about girls and being fed up with girls, brimmin’ with Angry Samoans spittle and breakin’ stuff like the Heartbreakers!
That sound made fresh again, yes. But green, no. A few of these Little Seizures have paid dues in numerous Big Apple garage outfits of the dead end of the century like The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, The Mess Around and The Shemps. Singer Tommy Perkins on the other hand is a bloodied snot-locker kid o’ 24 with bounce in his calves and hairy-palmed fists of fury. Who better to Go Ape? And what better way than with these oven-hot slices of gutter garrrrrage rock all boxed up in Ben Lyon’s larf-inducing monster-toon art. It’s pizza punk at its finest. Just don’t bend this single in half before you dig in…

The wickedest family feud in the history of the Big Easy! Die Rotzz vs. The Bastard Sons of Marvin Hirsch – “Family Feud” The brand new 4 song 7″ EP from Brooklyn’s favorite primates at Go Ape! Records. The first & last legit punk release of 2013 leads off with Die Rotzz, New Orleans’ favorite power trio. These fine Southern gentlemen have been described as sounding like Hitler farting into a fan miked to a Fender Twin with holes in the speakers. It’s hard not to like a band that evokes such poetic characterization and to us here at Go Ape, this is just simple, good ol’ fashioned rock-n-roll played by a bunch of troublemakers. Batting second, The Bastard Sons Of Marvin Hirsch. After learning of their illegitimacy, this dynamic duo went straight to the garage and started a band. They have now dropped in on the skate punk scene and taken everybody’s mom to the toilet. One could ask for little more when seeking something to clench a fist, or some teeth, to. There are just a few hundred of these, so get this two-headed monster while it’s hot off the press!
IN STOCK NOW! NEW JERSEY’S FAVORITE HELLIONS. NEW 3 SONG 45 RPM 7″ ON GO APE RECORDS.
Cobbled together from instruments fished out of the garbage and influenced by records nobody would ever fess up to diggin’ in good conscience, the Brimstones came together in 98’ to fill a grave left empty w/ the absence of real, intense, balls out rock & roll (not to be confused w/ the pap that passes for the real deal these days).

HOT OFF THE PRESS, IT’S THE LONG AWAITED NEW RELEASE FROM GO APE RECORDS: LOS WAKAMONOS FOUR FANCY ELEKI HITS. THIS TREBBLE, FUZZ AND REVERB SATURATED 4 SONG 7″ EP WILL MAKE YOR SPEAKERS SQUEAL LIKE A PIG. IT’S ABSOLUTELY PRIMITIVE!
Los Wakamonos “4 Fancy Eleki Hits” is the newest release from Brooklyn’s favorite DIY label, Go Ape Records. Los Wakamonos (roughly translated – The Young Men) is a demented “eleki” duo hailing from Okayama, Japan. Making their international vinyl debut, the emperors of eleki’s rough & ready brand of garage & surf instrumentals will make your speakers squeal like a pig. I don’t know if they surf on Monster Island, but if they do, I’d bet dollars to donuts Los Wakamonos is blasting out of every transistor radio along that beach. If you like treble squelching, fuzzed-out, reverb drenched guitar coupled with primitive, bombastic drums, check out the two-headed Beast from the East, Los Wakamonos. This is a very ltd edition 4 song EP mastered by the garage master himself, Tim Warren of Crypt Records. It is a fuzz & reverb saturated head-first foray into the frothy depths of the primitive. Los Wakamonos are truly the contemporary emperors of eleki.
