A tribute to a living legend on this limited release on 7” vinyl. Original artwork in a variety of colours, each band puts their unique spin on a classic Tom Waits track.


A1 The Domestics – Cemetery Polka

A2 Casual Nausea – God’s Away On Business

B1 The Dead Class – Rain Dogs

B4 The Minor Discomfort Band – Take Good Care



The Domestics


Based in Suffolk, UK. Snotty, obnoxious amphetamine powered Hardcore punk at it’s finest. Intensely political and continuously ferocious!



Casual Nausea


Five mates from Ipswich pass the time creating a glorious frantic mess. More a deranged punk rock family than a band, they are fast and aggressive yet strangely catchy.



The Dead Class


The UK/Irish punk quartet veterans of UK DIY touring scene with a string of underground releases. The band thrives on generating high speed in-your-face punk rock.



The Minor Discomfort Band


East Anglian pop-punk, country and folk music. Formed by members of Casual Nausea, The Domestics, Faintest Idea Luvdump and many more!



  • Limited copies available from the band.
  • Press copies available for review.

Spreading the sound of Antipop and the artists we admire is our prerogative. We have been lucky to work alongside several eclectic and brilliant bands throughout 2016.

A seven-track free-download available on the Antipop Records Bandcamp features each artist with releases in 2016.



Boycott the Baptist unleashed one of the more controversial grindcore albums with more than a hint of blasphemy. Carl Moorcroft received acclaim for his much anticipated debut album of acoustic punk rock. Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies touched a nerve with their second vinyl EP that tells a tale of the times. Sweet Deals on Surgery ploughed more into their emphatic debut album than most bands manage in a lifespan. Schoolboy’s Death Trio opened up a new genre by combining sounds and styles in true Antipop style. Elmo and the Styx committed to record a collection of rock songs that carve a niche in the world of progressive punk rock. Saltwater Injection melt speakers with their bass/drum/screamo brand of caustic punk rock on their second superb EP.

Download from Bandcamp

1.  Boycott The Baptist – Fuck Off Trump (from Bash The Bishop)
2.  Carl Moorcroft – Judgement (from On The Road)
3.  Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies – Queen Victoria’s Knob (from Psychedelic Village)

It was with heavy hearts that the band called it a day recently, extending their hiatus indefinitely. Some of the best moments in our lives have been at Nomeansno concerts, promoting and following them on tour.

We’d like to give away a few posters the band gave us while in the UK. If you’d like one just fill out the info below. They are limited so when they’re gone they’re gone.
