|RANCID HELL SPAWN|
|Rancid Hell Spawn have been going since 1988, making records packed with catchy, heavily distorted one-minute punk burnouts for the truly twisted, with record sleeves to match. Rancid Hell Spawn have released five albums and six singles so far, all but one on the Wrench Records label. Rancid Hell Spawn released no new material for 16 years after Teenage Lard was released in 1995 - but that changed with the release of the "Abolition Of The Orgasm" EP in 2011 and the EP "Eat My Cigarette" in 2016. There will be more Rancid Hell Spawn releases in the future - watch this space!|
|Newly released: "Lost Sputnik", Johnny Throttle's third single, and the second to be released on the Wrench label. Their debut release "Stukas Über Shoreditch" was released in 2009. Johnny Throttle formed in 2008 and have been playing drunken, beer-soaked gigs regularly since then. They play snotty, moronic and straight to the point punk. Probably London's snottiest punk band! They have also released material on Dirty Water Records and Crypt Records.|
|Released in 2010 - "More Songs About Motorcycles & Death". 6 killer tracks on a 12" EP! Black Time released their debut LP on their own label in 2004, and have since released a number of records on labels such as In The Red, Yakisakana and Bancroft.|
|The Parkinsons were originally based in Portugal, but were based in London for a number of years, and were one of the most popular bands on the London scene with their energetic live shows. They split up on the 27th May 2005 - their new EP "Up For Sale" was rushed out in time for their last ever show! This EP contains four tracks taken from the mixing desk at the Corn Rocket Club - all previously released, but these tracks sound better than the originals! The band are still going, and play gigs every now and again.|
|A new EP from those crazies from Chicago. Three tracks by the world's most noisy, trebly, wickedly inventive punk band. One of the best bands around - one of the few bands that are totally original and still totally punk rock!|
|THE REAL LOSERS|
|Click above for some stuff about The Real Losers, yet another band to release a killer EP on the Wrench label! Their "Go Nutzoid" EP was released in early 2004, and was followed soon after by a CD release of their "Time To Lose" album which was earlier released on vinyl by Squirrel Records.|
|HENRY FIAT'S OPEN SORE|
|Click above for some stuff about Sweden's finest, Henry Fiat's Open Sore. So far they have released two EPs on the Wrench label, "Patmos Or Bust" from early 2003, and "Gnarly" from 1999. Nothing but raw-as-hell, one-minute songs for those of you that like raw meat!|

|The first, and so far only, split EP on the Wrench label, featuring San Francisco's finest, the Loudmouths (sadly, not going any more) and Belgium's finest, the Hot Rod Honeys (who have also called it a day. This is the curse of Wrench Records......)|
