BDR Records Double Release Holiday Invitational!

The best record label in St Louis is proud to unleash two new fine pieces of the puzzle that is the early St Louis Punk/Wave scene... (ordering info at www.RerunRecordsSTL.com)

1.The Retros-"Inner City Rockers-The Retros 1979" LP/CD
12 studio tracks recorded at Webster College in 1979 & never released until now. Fiery but melodic Punk tunes in the vein of the Buzzcocks, Generation X and the Boys. LP will include a CD with all the studio tracks plus bonus live tracks. The CD will also be available by itself in a very limited run...

2.Dear John-Frustrated Conversation 7" 30th Anniversary Re-release!

Criminally unknown Power-Pop gem recorded in 1981, this record existed only in the memories of a few St Louisans & the grubby mitts of a few Power Pop collectors the world over. Head John Bob Kuhlmann recently unearthed a batch of singles that had been in storage for thirty years & BDR has whipped up new covers with never-before seen photos & new liner notes. Limited to the 350 copies on hand....and the first 100 will even come with a download code to get more songs from their only recording session. Wow!

....and we're having a release party/show as well....bring the whole family!!

Welders 2nd Pressing NOW AVAILABLE!!!



The Welders-s/t 4 song 7"ep



That's right kids The Welders smash hit 4 song 7"ep is available again! We sold out of all 500 copies of the first pressing, so we've done a second. 500 more copies with the same beautiful sleeve and fold out insert, but this time it's pressed on classic black vinyl. Heck, we're such nice guys that we've even decided (been able) to lower the price a bit. Since it cost less to do a second pressing, we're passing the savings on to you...for a limited time, anyway. It's so you poor kids can buy the record and still be kept in Top ramen and Meister Brau for at least one more day with your leftover loot.

Here are five reasons why you need The Welders EP whether you already own it already or not:

1. You've worn out your first copy and could use a new one.

2. Let's face it, you're a record geek super fan that must have every version of a record you dig.

3. You need a present that really shows you have good taste for a loved one, and who in their right mind wouldn't love a copy of this record?

4. Black wax means more visibility! DJ's that have trouble cueing colored vinyl in dark clubs can now rejoice with easy to cue black. With much of the fan base suffering from failing eyesight, they will now be able to place the needle on the second song of each side without having to also listen to the first.

5. It's been endorsed by Maximum Rock n Roll, Ugly Things, The Big Takeover, Henry Rollins and a whole buncha other swell radio stations, plus hundreds of teeny boppers from St. Louis and beyond! Don't you trust their opinion?

Get your The Welders & Test Patterns here!

Heya Kids-

Here is the direct mailorder info for the two new BDR releases. Let us know if you have any questions or comments!



The Welders-4 song s/t 7"ep (BDR#3)
The Welders formed in 1975 and dissolved in 1981; leaving behind only a few fanzine articles and faded memories of their live performances. They were St. Louis? first and only all female band during the Punk era. Where many Rn'R females tout the bad girl persona, The Welders chose to embrace their good girl tendencies to create a near perfect blend of The Monkees, New York Dolls and Saturday morning cartoons. A recording session in 1979 for a planned vinyl EP never saw the light of day when the individual backing the release went bankrupt. That session has been rescued and restored from a 30 year old, rotting cassette, and BDR is happy to bring you this master piece of St. Louis music some three decades later.
*The Welders EP is a pressing of 500 copies on opaque red vinyl, in a glue pocket sleeve, with a double sided 7" x 14" insert*

MP3s of two Welders' songs can be heard by downloading this file: WELDERS SAMPLE


V/A-Test Patterns CD (BDR #1)

BDR brings you a reissue of the classic Test Patterns compilation album; originally released by Jet Lag Magazine's John the Mailman in 1981. Although obscure outside of the area due to a lack of national distribution upon its initial release, the compilation is known to early Punk/Indie record collectors and some clued in music historians. Test Patterns features two songs each by seven independent bands from the St. Louis area: The Felons, The Mopeds, The Strikers, Swift Kick, The Oozkicks, Trained Animal and The Zanti Misfits. The songs range from poppy Punk to Power Pop to hard-edged New Wave, with a couple bands even giving a nod to the 2 Tone revival of the day. Remastered from the original tapes and issued on compact disc for the first time ever! Liner notes by Steve Pick of Jet Lag Magazine and Jason Ross of BDR Records.

MP3s of three songs from Test Patterns can be heard by downloading this file:TEST PATTERNS


Raymilland-Recordings '79-'81 is still available...see the post below...
