REISSUES & TOUR DATES


TKO is working on a few essential reissues that will be available in the very near future. Each band will be on tour in support of these repackaged classics!

The reissue of Poison Idea's mid-80's masterpiece Kings of Punk is due out soon. The new edition will feature a remastered version of the album and deluxe packaging that includes expanded liner notes, previously unpublished photos, a poster and a bonus live 12" of soundboard recordings from '84-'86: The works!



TKO welcomes Giuda to the family, reissuing their debut album "Racey Roller". If you are unfamiliar with the band, they seamlessly interweave the glam stylings of bands like Slade or The Sweet with the energy of early UK pub rock to inject you with a blast of glitter-tinged proto-punk. Check out their video for "Number 10" and see them play in a town near you!


  
 
Don't miss out on these killer reissues and shows!

LABEL NEWS JULY 2013

TKO has had the tremendous opportunity to work with countless incredible bands over the years, forging lifelong bonds and friendships with musicians, labels and music enthusiasts all over the world. 

One such band that TKO had the pleasure of working with is the "The Greatest Band Of The 21st Century" Cocknoose. It is with a heavy heart that we announce that vocalist Devin/Commander PP Urino has passed away after battling brain cancer for over two years. We are proud to have been a part of his life and will continue to share the incredible music that he has left behind.







In happier news, TKO heavy hitters Poison Idea have been announced as a 2013 inductee into the Oregon Music Hall Of Fame. 





We couldn't be more pleased to see the Kings Of Punk ascend to their rightful place atop the thrones that showcase the best in Oregon's rich musical history. 

 As always check back for label news, in-store appearances and the latest and greatest in punk rock vinyl and beyond.
