Mystic Records 
A Message from Doug

Sorry I haven't been around for a while.  I've been in Baja, Mexico, learning to breathe again.  As a result of the Mystic fire and going through old boxes of records and Mystic papers, I developed respiratory problems that laid me low for a few months. 

I'm back in action now and excited to announce two new Mystic CDs, The Best of Grim and The Best of Il Repute.  These are new, not released in this format previously.  The limited edition white vinyl of these bands will be available later this summer.  The long-promised Government Issue LP and CD are now available!

Best of Government Issue - Release Date June 15, 2011
Limited Edition LP - 500 on White Vinyl
Includes Bonus Tracks

Government Issue hails from Washington, D.C.  The band is considered to be a founding member of the DC scene.  With the intense musical energy and the wacky antics of Jon Stabb, often called "The Clowned Prince of Punk," they developed a loyal following on the East Coast.  After seeing a Mystic display in a D. C. record store and knowing Mystic was strong in California, they called Doug Moody, and he brought them to Hollywood to record and introduced them to the West Coast.
This record is a combination of the "Give Us Stabb" studio EP and live recordings made across the U. S.  It is an excellent sampler of their strongest material.  The live recordings were recorded multi-track and later mixed in the studio.
The Best of Government Issue release is part of the Mystic 2010 Collectors Series.  Even with the collectability of the series, it is still priced to move and is a must-have for anyone who collects Mystic.

Best of Battalion of Saints
Limited Edition LP - WAS 500 on White Vinyl (only 48 left)
Includes Bonus Tracks

Best of Battalion of Saints contains songs from various studio recording sessions including from Hit Single in San Diego and Mystic Studios in Hollywood as well as live recordings. The pure energy generated by this band is apparent in their hard core, no holds barred style of thrash, screaming guitars by Chris Smith (R.I.P.) and the pained wailings of George Anthony that sound more like a sasquatch on steroids than anything human.

When the Mystic sessions took place in the early 80s, the band camped in the studio for several days of recording and yes, partying. The cover art was created by punk rock master Mad Marc Rude (R.I.P.) who was their manager and mentor at the time. The Best of Battalion of Saints release is part of the Mystic 2010 Collectors Series of limited edition of 500 records on white vinyl.  Even with the collectability of the series, it is still priced to move and will be a crown in the collection of anyone who collects Mystic Records.

25 Years of Hard Core from Oxnard and Surrounding Areas

Limited Edition LP - WAS 500 on White Vinyl (only 40 left)

This is the ORIGINAL Nardcore.These are the original groups. When Doug first met the Ill Repute group and asked them what kind of music they played, they answered "Hardcore from Oxnard." So was born the name Nardcore, which designated the Oxnard and Ventura area of Mystic Land. 
Following Ill Repute into the Mystic Studio were other Nardcore bands: Aggression, Scared Straight, Dr. Know, False Confession, RKL, Rat Pack, Rotters, Habeas Corpus, A.F.U. and Stalag 13. Mystic put them all together on one LP, and 25 years later, here are the original recordings along with bonus tracks on the free CD which were originally recorded at the same time and released on SuperSevens.

About Mystic Records

During the 1970s and 80s, rock and roll evolved from sounding like cartoon music to realism. The wars were very real to the young, and they were rebelling. Punk had come from Scotland as the Scots rebelled against the British. In California, punk became thrash or "thrash and bash." Generally it was hardcore, agressive, in-your-face music with the musicians wearing skulls meaning, "I'm doing what's in my head."

Doug Moody, who had held executive positions with several record companies, formed Mystic Records to record unknown bands. Mystic joined the revolution. It reminded Doug of the 1950s when black bands turned the blues into R & B.  Doug had 18 gold records during the 1950s including "In the Still of the Night" by the Five Satins on Doug's Ember Records label prior to founding Mystic.

With the help of five producer/engineers, Mystic recorded 500 unknown skateboard bands throughout the 80s and beyond. Mystic specializes in hardcore punk, crossover thrash, underground, vintage, and cult records. Many of the bands recorded by Mystic later became famous such as NOFX, Dr. Know, RKL, Battallion of Saints, Ill Repute, and The Mentors. Mystic also released vinyl records by Suicidal Tendencies, Government Issue, Black Flag, The Minutemen, The Instigators, and Bad Religion.

Today 300 of the 500 original bands are currently on Mystic Records. Over the next two years, Mystic will release the catalog on white vinyl LPs and Super Seven, making many vinyl collectors' dreams come true. st of the records were recorded in the legendary Mystic Sound Studio in Hollywood. Today Mystic offers new releases and re-releases of classic albums on collectible colored vinyl, t-shirts and other related products.
Thank You!
