REPRESS: MEPHISKAPHELES “God Bless Satan” LP (red vinyl)

Red vinyl REPRESS  has arrived limited to 250 copies! Debut 1994 album from New York City satanic ska punk band, produced by Bill Laswell. Thirteen upbeat skankers, flush with brass, drenched with irresistible melodies and infectious choruses. Originally self released, the album soon went global after being licensed by Moon Ska Records. Far beyond 2-Tone with a slight nod to Jamaica’s originators, Mephiskapheles birthed their own ska-based niche. Go SATAN! Go SKA!  We also released the cassette tape for Cassette Store Day 2017, add one for the collection only 150 made!  Their second album “Maximum Perversion” is also available on vinyl and tape from us!

Black Friday 2021: MEPHISKAPHELES “Never Born Again” Digital Print Picture Disc LP

Longtime fans of MEPHISKAPHELES know that JUMP UP has reissued their first three classic full lengths on vinyl over the past decade, plus we’ve distributed their self titled mini-LP from 2015. In 2019 the band released a brand new 4 song EP and since then we’ve been trying to figure out how to make this a cool vinyl release. Then one day we were shown a process where a printer can put a digital print on a blank side of a record – and the idea behind the “NEVER BORN AGAIN” vinyl was born! MEPHISKAPHELES added two never before released demo versions brining the music side to 6 songs total, pressed on clear vinyl and limited to 500 copies. Due to the complex nature of this project this will remain a one time pressing! Originally set to ship out the second week of December, a pressing and printer delay unexpectedly kicked this to the beginning of January.

MEPHISKAPHELES “Might-Ay White-Ay” LP – white vinyl {SOLD OUT – REPRESS LATE 2022}

SOLD OUT REPRESS LATE 2022. NYC satanic ska/metal band’s third album from 1999 finally on vinyl for the first time! Demanded by fans – we heard you! After our reissues of “GOD BLESS SATAN” and “MAXIMUM PERVERSION”of course we’d be dropping this on you for Black Friday 2019! At the time of this release the band was having issues with their new label, and it suffered from promotion and distribution problems. The final master was not up to snuff either. We are proud to announce that this has been completely remastered by the band, perfected for vinyl! Limited edition of 500 on white vinyl .

Cassette Store Day 2019 – Twelve new tapes including THE SLACKERS, MUSTARD PLUG, THE PIETASTERS, THE SKATALITES and MEPHISKAPHELES!

Jump Up is leading the way supporting cassette culture with 12 releases for the yearly Cassette Store Day celebration! We lead ALL LABELS with the most new titles dropping on Saturday October 12th! One again we ask you to call a participating shop and request that they stock our titles for the day – we want to support brick and mortar stores first. As always we will be offering our titles on our website that day we do understand that not everyone is close to a participating store. Tapes are fun and inexpensive, and are always more limited than the vinyl or CD versions. In many cases tapes allow us to add bonus material that we simply can’t fit on a vinyl record. In this day and age it seems everything is available on vinyl and records have become mainstream, thus cassette culture has really taken off once again for true collectors. Do yourself a favor and pick up a vintage tape deck or boombox this year – you’ll be glad you did! For a list of participating shops go to the Cassette Store Day site HERE. To see close ups on the tapes and videos of them playing on our vintage boombox collection – follow us on Instgram
