What we do

Overground Records releases punk rock, anarcho punk, proto punk and other interesting reissues, and the occasional new release by bands we’ve previously reissued.

Overground Records started in 1988 inspired to reissue a few punk rock classics. The first few releases were limited edition vinyl pressings, but with the advent of compact discs we started manufacturing CDs because we could include up to 74 minutes of music, making them better value. Much of the catalogue is also available for download.

The latest release is the new single from Paranoid Visions ‘Two Black Eyes’. Two new and seriously wonderful tracks, limited 7″, 500 only with insert. You might hve seen all the controversy surrounding U2 about it, who described Paranoid Visions as brats. Hilarious!

Previous release was The Cravats In Toytown, which faithfully reproduces the original artwork and insert, but has the addition of an inner sleeve.

Next up is a reissue of The Licks 1970’s EP which reproduces the original. 500 only.
