Co-founded in 1978 by Chris Cutler, London-based ReR Megacorp remains a musician-led independent label after almost 40 years. Blithely disregarding market wisdom, it continues to release titles across a wide spectrum of genres.
ReR is home to cult bands This Heat, Henry Cow, Faust, Art Bears, The Necks...
By definition, punk packs a punch, but Avail carries more luggage than most, including its own band cheerleader, Beau Beau, and thus this group knocks out some of the biggest sounds around, walloping fans on record after record. This is Avails fifth full-length but first for Fat Wreck Chords, and finds the band in the same pastures, just a bit more musically thoughtful. As listeners have come to expect, Avail slams through musical boundaries, making a nonsense of subgenres; what sounds good, what works, and what makes the biggest noise is the groups only concern, be it 70s rock, grunge, hardcore, thrash metal, punk-pop, old-school, new-school, forget school, Avails burnt the building down, sucked up the ashes, and regurgitated them into a sound all its own. This is true crossover, a style that can reunite the myriad of todays tribes under their own banner.
