The Heads

Nobody Knows

    THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

    Half of these are the white vinyl edition - it's a 50% chance lucky dip folks!!

    In 2014 The Heads reissued their 2000 album "Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere" in full remastered / deluxe boset glory, and to much acclaim.
    In the boxset, they added a 70 minute Compact Disc of demos, unheard versions etc of material pre -2000 recorded in the rehearsal room on a walkman.

    For RSD 2015, and to celebrate their rare live performances at Roadburn 2015, Simon Price has taken the material he edited for the bonus CD, and added more tracks to the pot. With the mastering expertise / tape polishing skills of Shawn Joseph, Price has created a warts'n'all document of the time in the heads' rehearsal space just prior to the making / construction of the Every Knows album. This double LP is 10 tracks of the Heads in their element, raw and alive in the rehearsal room prior to 2000, tracks being formed, prototype Heads' riffs in the sonic gloop. Hear this era of the Heads in its speaker blowing, walkman warping glory, a true psychedelic rock morass. Wrapped in a Simon Price sleeve, a gatefold sleeve to boot! naturally!
    A "fin de seicle" of sorts, "Nobody Knows" is a closing chapter, a sonic glossary to the band's Everybody Knows' legacy.

    1200 COPIES WORLD WIDE FOR RSD 2015, NO DOWNLOAD CARDS/CODES, NO REPRESS. COMES WITH POSTER.


    The Animals

    We’re Gonna Howl Tonight - Mono Edition

      THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

      180gm LP limited to 2000 copies worldwide. Unlike most of the London-based, middle class art school types adopting the blues, the Animals came from a tough working class area of Newcastle. Despite their somewhat scruffy appearance and what appeared to be homemade haircuts, their pure gutsy performances went down a storm around the UK. This album taken from live sessions broadcast in 1964 finds the group in fine fettle and features recordings from that first successful year when they sounded so fresh and exciting. Here they are playing blues standards by the likes of Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker and Chuck Berry, just like they did when they cut their debut self-titled LP that same year. They’re gonna howl tonight! All tracks in Mono.

          Syd Barrett / R.E.M.

          Dark Globe

            THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

            Syd Barrett was one of the most influential musicians in British pop history. He was as appreciated as much for his iconoclastic approach to the electric guitar as for his adventurous and imaginative songwriting (via SydBarrett.com). Syd also co-founded Pink Floyd and was their first vocalist.
            R.E.M. marked the point when post-punk turned into alternative rock. Combining ringing guitar hooks with mumbled, cryptic lyrics and a DIY. aesthetic borrowed from post-punk, the band simultaneously sounded traditional and modern. Though there were no overt innovations in their music, R.E.M. had an identity and sense of purpose that transformed the American underground. (via AllMusic)

            Part of Rhino’s now-celebrated Side By Side 7” singles series. Two artists perform the same song. Surprising and unusual performances and repertoire.

                    innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. He is known for his distinctive voice as well as the intellectual depth and eclecticism of his work.

                    The Brian Jonestown Massacre

                    Musique De Film Imaginé

                    Musique de film imaginé (music for film imagined) is a soundtrack that pays homage to the great European film directors of the late 50’s and 60’s, such as François Truffaut & Jean-Luc Godard (to name but two), created by Anton Newcombe on behalf of the Brian Jonestown Massacre for an imaginary French film. Guests on this daring symphonic experience are French chanteuse and multi-instrumentalist SoKo and Italian actress, singer and director Asia Argento.

                    SoKo is signed to Because Music and her track ‘We Might Be Dead by Tomorrow’ was featured in the viral video ‘First Kiss’, which has garnered over 63 million views and debuted at number 9 in the Billboard Hot 100 last year. Asia Argento, who has starred in music videos for Marilyn Manson, Placebo and Tim Burgess, recently wrote the storyline for ASAP Rocky’s music video and short film ‘Phoenix’, which has had over 5.5 million hits. Both vocal performances are in French. Anton Newcombe recorded Musique de film imaginé in Berlin in August 2014, after a successful European tour for the Brian Jonestown Massacre.

                      dbh is Dan Bridgewood-Hill, who for some time has had a hand in an inordinate amount of the great music emerging from Manchester’s D.I.Y. scene. His guitar playing drives the exhilarating prog racket of NASDAQ and FTSE 100, and his contributions on all manner of instruments have illuminated the music of Charles Hayward (This Heat), Kiran Leonard and Irma Vep, to name but a few. As dbh, he plays lovingly crafted instrumentals, enunciating his passion for popular music with a languid, progressive guitar style and playful experimentation. The unreleased track, "Sea Retreat", was selected by Hayden Pedigo to appear on Tompkin Square's (Daniel Bachman, James Blackshaw, William Tyler, et al.) latest solo guitar compilation, "Imaginational Anthem Vol. 7". Mood is dbh's second album and is the follow-up to "Time Flies" (Crowfoot Records, 2013). All eleven songs were recorded and mixed by Karl Sveinsson at Queens Ark Audio, and mastered by George Atkins at 80 Hertz Studios, February through March, 2015. The CD is packaged in a gatefold sleeve – letterpress printed at the Red Plate Press. dbh will be performing live through out the U.K. and Europe in 2015.

                      STAFF COMMENTS

                      Matt says: Matt Says: Wonderful return of my favourite 6-string maestro with more of his inimitable progressive guitar style. Warm, welcoming and full of character; it's not unreasonable to say that dbh is OUR generation's John Fahey / Robbie Basho. His songs are that developed and strong in their own right, and as soon as you here those first few notes, you know its dbh.

                        THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

                        An English rock band formed in 1968, they are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach has changed over the years. Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath together have been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-Seventies.” They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as “the globe’s loudest band” for a 1972 concert at London’s Rainbow Theatre, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. (via Wikipedia)

                          Dire Straits

                          Honky Tonk Demos

                            THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

                            The ‘Honky Tonk Demos’ makes available four songs that were part of the original demo tape that Dire Straits recorded in July 1977 that made its way to the desk of DJ Charlie Gillett. On the 31st of that month he played the version of Sultans Of Swing here that led to the group being signed. With three tracks previously unreleased, this double pack, mastered for vinyl at Bernie Grundman’s, is a true piece of history. 


                            As an artist whose name has become mutually synonymous with the instrument he plays Bruce Ditmas is a very unique heavy musician from one of those special tightknit communities that tried (and almost succeeded) to change the facade of progressive pop music and jazz via musical technology.

                            Raised in Miami (an unknown incubator for future synthesists) Bruce carved the image of a teen prodigy playing jazz drums at the most exclusive Miami Beach hotels. After being whisked off to New York by none other that July Garland he became immersed in free music, recording compositions by Annette Peacock and Carla Bley before setting up house with vocal artist Joan La Barbara (later Mrs. Morton Subotnick) in 1975, who, via her own label, encouraged Bruce to pursue his very specific experiments in heavy electronic rhythms.

                            This LP is compiled from the solo Moog Drum compositions from his only two albums both released in 1977 using a Mini-Moog (donated by Gil “Hendrix” Evans), an Arp 2600 and a wide range of treated percussive instruments that littered this enfant terrible’s bedroom floor throughout the 1970s. A later pillar of the Enja and ECM community, Bruce's later work in TV, film, sound sculpture and free music still renders truly unique recording to this very day.

                            Meet your new favourite drummer, and the best Moog Drum record in your whole collection!

                                          Goblin

                                          Chi? - Coloured Vinyl Edition

                                            THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

                                            Another great exclusive from AMS Records, taken from the Cinevox catalogue, a record label from Rome specialized in soundtracks. "Chi?" is probably unheard by many, but it’s probably known by those who are already Goblin's fans. The band, after the success of "Profondo Rosso" and the less known - but still beautiful - "Roller", started to record more frequently. "Chi?", almost-7-minutes in length, is divided into two equal parts on both sides of this 45rpm, and it's the theme of the eponymous TV program transmitted on Rai Uno channel in 1976. It's no coincidence that it sounds very close to "Roller", the second Goblin album recorded in an inspirational period (the masterpiece "Suspiria" would soon follow), and could easily be an outtake from that record.

                                            This single, especially released for Record Store Day 2015 (April 18th), is the first ever reissue of the original 7". Moreover, "Chi?" has never been released in any CD or LP compilation since 1976.

                                                    In 2013 Headland produced the LP sound/track to accompany a collection of 1970s surf film fragments site-specific to the northern coast of New South Wales: an album of guitar-based music seemingly poised between the open spaces of the landscape and the stylised rhythm of single-fin surfing.

                                                    This latest release, Cosy, maintains the essence of that project, providing five easy pieces that reflect on Australian surf-culture of the ‘70s and hint at an upcoming full-length release.

                                                    Headland’s main contributors are Murray Paterson, known elsewhere for his work with Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses, and Joel Silbersher, founding member of seminal Australian Rock bands God and Hoss.

                                                    Fans of the likes of Giant Sand / early Calexico / Scenic / Sun Kil Moon would be advised to take a dip.

Chills… has since become something of a sought after ‘mod’ classic.

Taking influence from 1960's Thai funk - Khruangbin literally translates to "Engine Fly" in Thai - the EP is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool.

                                                            ‘Kinksize Session’ was the first EP released by The Kinks in the UK in 1964, a month after their debut LP.

                                                            The tracks were all exclusive to the release and it includes some original compositions.

                                                            Despite the title, only three of the tracks were recorded in a single session (18 October 1964) with ‘I Gotta Go Now’ having already been recorded (believed to be at the same session as single ‘All Day and All Of The Night’ on 23 September).

                                                              When Alan Bishop becomes obsessed with something, he often goes to great lengths (and travels great distances) to turn that obsession into an essential artifact.

                                                              Such is the case with his latest group's Sub Pop debut, ‘Koes Barat’, a sincere, gripping tribute to a band of Indonesian brothers - the Koeswoyos - whose instantly catchy garage-rock songs and ridiculously charming ballads caused a sensation in their homeland, Singapore, and Malaysia.

                                                              They also made their government very uneasy: Basing your look on Western musicians and covering Beatles songs were considered subversive activities in mid-'60s Indonesia.

                                                              Back in 2010, Sun City Girls legend Bishop asserted his fandom of Koes Bersaudara (aka Koes Plus) with two archival releases of their music on his and Hisham Mayet's Sublime Frequencies label.

                                                              But that noble gesture wasn't enough to sate Bishop's appreciation of this music that flourished from the mid '60s to 1970. He also felt an overwhelming urge to interpret what he felt to be the best Koes tunes.

                                                              To that end, he enlisted some of his favorite musicians in the Spoils—guitarist Milky Burgess, drummer Don McGreevy, and bassist Jim Davis—all of whom also play or played with Seattle’s Master Musicians Of Bukkake, and producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Marisa Nadler) to work the boards.

                                                              ‘Koes Barat’ was cut in less than a week of sessions, and the results hit your ears with a revelatory smack. It is the most immediate, fun collection that the prolific Bishop has ever led.

                                                              LP includes an MP3 coupon.

                                                                Three tracks from the Meanwhile Gardens Sessions not available on the forthcoming album.

                                                                Emerging in the heady days of 1990, Levitation’s arc was intense and brief. Formed By Terry Bickers after leaving the House of Love, Bic Hayes was recruited from Cardiacs, and the other members fell into place. After several singles and a mini album comprised of live tracks and singles, they managed a lone album, Need for Not, before spectacularly combusting onstage at the Tufnell Park Dome in 1993, when Terry Bickers left the band, saying he couldn’t continue. With their masterpiece second album, Meanwhile Gardens already recorded, they searched for a replacement, but final choice Steve Ludwin failed to capture the energy and they disbanded. Three of the members went on to form Dark Star, who shone brightly, if briefly towards the end of the decade.

                                                                Meanwhile Gardens only ever gained a commercial release on CD in Australia, for some unknown reason, but that version released had Steve Ludwin’s vocals replacing Terry Bickers’ and the result was disappointing – despite this, that CD of this now sells for over £100 online.

                                                                The members of Levitation have always felt that the original version deserved a proper release, and their fans feel the same. A facebook page was set up to encourage the release of the original album and serves as a focus for fans of the band.

                                                                After an abortive attempt at releasing it in 2006, all hope seemed lost until Flashback Records stepped in to offer a proper release. The band were enthusiastic, archives were trawled for the original analogue mixes and a track listing decided as the definitive Meanwhile Gardens. Sadly, three unreleased tracks much loved by faithful were omitted from this, so it was decided to release these as a limited edition 12” single for Record Store Day, 2015.

                                                                Levitation’s music never fell easily into a category. Immaculately played, the complex structures seemed effortless, with Bickers’ emotive vocals forming a counterpoint to unique drummer Francolini’s staccato snare hits, underpinned by fluid bass from O’Keefe. Hayes and White provide texture and lyrical lines which weave through this amazing music. At the time, their contemporaries were The Verve and the Shoegaze scene, but Levitation always had more focus and power than their contemporaries. Had they managed to stay together long enough to release Meanwhile Gardens, their name would be revered in the same context as Radiohead and the Verve.

                                                                What might have been then is finally realised now.

It's been noted that their are traces of Serge Gainsbourg, Beck, Stereolab, Gospel, Yeh-Yeh, guitar fuzz freakouts, and Nugget's-era stompers in the Limiñanas music. All of which may be true, but Limiñanas' sound is irreverent and singular.

By 1967, that attribute had turned him into a valuable commodity (via Wikipedia). In 1968 on Lord Sitar’s initial release on EMI’s Columbia label, there were rumors that the Lord was in fact George Harrison!

                                                                  A kitsch classic, a lounge favorite, Lord Sitar is an album of cover versions as diverse as “I Can See For Miles” and “If I Were A Rich Man” from the sitar of the late great guitar legend Big Jim Sullivan.

Her career began in the sixties through the folk clubs and coffee houses, where she learned to project as an artist and perform the unique songs she wrote. Coming to the attention of many through other artists’ interpretation of her songs such as Tom Rush, Judy Collins and in the UK Fairport Convention, Joni was able to sign to Reprise records and with the release of her debut album emerged as one of the pioneers of the American singer songwriter movement. Joni Mitchell however was never able to stay in one place and re wrote the book on song composition. Through a series of hugely successful albums both artistically and commercially, Joni Mitchell’s career extended through the sixties and up until 2007. She also toured extensively throughout the seventies and eighties both as a solo artist and with bands. More famously she recorded with Tom Scott’s L.A.Express and recorded the live album Aisle of Miles in 1974. Latterly she performed with a band made up of the cream of the jazz movement including Jaco Pastorius and guitarist Pat Metheny, Don Alias and Lyle Mays. The material sourced for this release comes from the mid-sixties just prior to Joni gaining a recording contract with Reprise Records. At this point in her career she was writing songs that were so far removed from other singer songwriters that it was only a matter of time before she would get a recording contract. The fact that other respected artists were recording her songs was in all probability the clincher for Reprise to sign her up. The songs featured in this set were recorded at a club date in late 1966 and 1967, although some of the material later would turn up on some of Joni’s first albums from Reprise records. In fact shortly after some of these performances Joni would sign the major record deal that would see her through the early seventies and form the bedrock of one of the most artistically satisfying and commercial careers in music.

With a line-up of DENNY LAINE (Guitar, Vocals, Harmonica), RAY THOMAS (Vocals, Harmonica, Flute), MIKE PINDER (Keyboards, Vocals), CLINT WARWICK (Bass, Vocals) and GRAEME EDGE (Drums), the band signed to a London based management company who leased recordings to Decca Records.

                                                                        Their second single, a cover version of Bessie Banks’ ‘Go Now!’ was a huge chart success across the world. Their debut album, “The Magnificent Moodies” was released in1965 to great acclaim and tours with The Beatles eventually led them to become part of Brian Epstein’s management stable. The band continued to record a series of singles, enjoying further chart hits in the UK and Europe, before Clint Warwick departed to be replaced by ROD CLARKE and then finally dissolving in the Autumn of 1966 and reinventing themselves stylistically with a new line-up including JUSTIN HAYWARD and JOHN LODGE.

                                                                        This official 50th anniversary Deluxe edition includes the original album, re-mastered from the first generation master tapes, along with all the singles the band recorded between 1964 and 1966. Notably this collection includes 29 previously unreleased bonus tracks, including the band’s entire July 1964

[There’s] a theory that people are sometimes inextricably drawn to repetitive flashing lights that are actually trying to warn them of a danger,” explains the incognito one man band “Moth Effect”. Crocodilians is his first full-length album for the rising Sunstone label. Moth Effect doesn’t sing. He doesn’t do flashy. Instead, he creates trance-inducing instrumentals that tick all of the “right boxes” for crate digging lunatics. Yes, the key signatures of the ’70s Kosmiche bands can be picked up, as can Quark, Strangeness & Charm era Hawkwind and newer adapters The Soundcarriers, but the artist also takes time to note that ’60s and ’70s psych, garage-rock and soul, pre-punk and new wave, hip-hop and lots of contemporary electronic music also equally appeal and inspire. “I grew up listening to bands like The MC5, Love, Stooges and Stereolab,” he says, “as well as ’90’s electronic music – labels like Warp and Ninja Tune. I suppose you could melt down a few LPs of that stuff and end up with something approaching the Moth Effect sound!” But there’s more to Crocodilians than that. ‘Fingerbobs’ (see the reference?) works on a lovely circular bass line with the perfect mix of clean electric guitar and layers of instrumentation that clearly recall ’70s library music for a kid’s show and ‘Roll It Back Up’ recalls an early ’80s educational science programme theme, laced with Radiophonic Workshop synths and a jolly sci-fi intoned riff and shimmering middle break down. If a lot of what’s lazily classified as “repetition based Kraut inspired” music could be called dark, Moth Effect’s tunes are often lighter, more melodic and not unlike the incidental music from a late ’70s/early ’80s Children’s Film Foundation film. “I try to make music that’s easy to get into on the surface, but with a few dark corners in the right places,” he laughs. Crocodilians justifies repeated listens – with each play new strands of moods and feelings are discovered. It constantly evolves. “Slow mo psych” is a term that the artist has used to describe his music, and it certainly fits. “You know,” he closes, “if you fall half-asleep whilst listening to the radio, it usually sounds a lot better.”

Obviously Anton Newcombe needs no introductions so we’ve decided to tell you more about Tess Parks. A native of Toronto, Tess Parks moved to London, England at the age of seventeen where she briefly studied photography before dropping out and deciding to focus on music. Tess managed to make an impression on industry legend Alan McGee, founder of Creation Records, albeit the timing of their meeting could hardly have been less ideal; McGee was no longer involved in music and Tess was due to move back to Toronto. After moving back to her hometown in 2012, Tess formed a band on the advice of Alan McGee and less than a year after their meeting, he returned to music with his new label, 359 Music. Tess became one of his first six signings and released her debut record Blood Hot in November 2013 to excellent reviews. One reviewer described her as “Patti Smith on Quaaludes”. Others have mentioned her "gauzy psychedelic sound” and "smouldering voice”. Alan McGee himself said: “She’s only 24 and is already an amazing songwriter... she just doesn’t quite know she is yet … her most beautiful quality is her lack of ego. Tess is an amazing lady”. In February 2014, she began recording with Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe in Berlin and they completed their new record 'I Declare Nothing' in autumn 2014. The record is due out later this. 10”

Enlisting the assistance of PHIL COLLINS, JOHN HACKETT, VIV McAULIFFE, JACK LANCASTER and many others, “The Geese and the Ghost” finally appeared in 1977 in America on the Passport label and in the UK on the Hit & Run imprint.

                                                                            Lauded by many as a supreme achievement, this definitive of “The Geese and the Ghost” has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes by Simon Heyworth and includes a stunning new 5.1 Surround Sound mix of the album by Andy Myles and Simon Heyworth, along with a CD of demos and early versions of the tracks on “Geese”. The bonus tracks are completed with the addition of both sides of an abortive single from 1973, ‘Silver Song’ and ‘Only Your Love’ (previously unreleased). Both tracks feature Phil Collins as vocalist.

Sheer Mag seemingly came out of nowhere last Autumn with this killer four track EP. It is the only record of recent times that manages to sound like a mix of a classic Seventies rock record, power pop and an obscure English DIY 7" from the late 70's.

                                                                                        Everything sounds scrappy, fuzzy and scuzzy and it's all the better for it. The riff packed guitar work and fuzzed female vocals sit perfectly together whilst the crude rhythms just adds bounce and basic beats. Think a mix of the power pop delight of Protex, the lo-fi nature of The Seize, the riffs of Thin Lizzy and the powerful female vocal of Suzi Quatro. It shouldn't work but it does. It really does!"

Heralding from the small midwestern town of Zion, IL along Lake Michigan’s western shore, Shoes was formed by 3 like-minded high school friends in the mid 1970s. Inspired by the British Invasion and the joys of the 3-minute pop song, their early home recordings, self-released LPs and DIY approach established them as pioneers of the home studio movement. "Primal Vinyl" is a collection of classic Shoes songs that includes a previously unreleased live track and material released on vinyl for the first time.

                                                                                              The a-side is a previously unreleased version which features Mac’s keyboards more predominantly plus a piano section that was erased during the mix for the original single.

                                                                                              The b-side is written and sung by Ian McLagan and taken from ‘There Are But Four Small Faces’, the band’s debut album on Immediate Records.

                                                                                              Both songs have been mastered to vinyl from the original Immediate Records tapes under the supervision of surviving Small Faces member Kenney Jones.

                                                                                              The picture sleeve features a highly-collectable Gered Mankovitz photograph from the ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ album photo sessions.

                                                                                              Both songs are coupled together for the first time and released for Record Store Day 2015 in memory of Ian “Mac” McLagan (1945 – 2014).

                                                                                                A lavish recreation of the 5-panel award-winning original round sleeve.

                                                                                                'Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake', recorded in late 1967 and early 1968, and released in the summer of that year, is by far and away the Small Faces’ best-known and most successful album.

                                                                                                Alongside classic tracks like ‘Lazy Sunday’, ‘Afterglow’ and ‘Rollin’ Over’, it even added a conceptual twist with the story of ‘Happiness Stan’ and the narrations of Stanley Unwin.

                                                                                                Loved also for its crazy round packaging, the record represents the band’s finest hour, though soon after its release the Small Faces were no more, having morphed into the Faces and Humble Pie.

                                                                                                UK only release, only 2000 units.

                                                                                                  Shindig Magazine has called them “one of Psych’s best kept secrets”. Drowned In Sound compared them to Brian Jonestown Massacre, combined with the sonic intensity of A Place To Bury Strangers. Last year they grasped the attention of Psych Nouveau godfathers The Black Angels, who were enthusiastic of sharing a 10” split single, collecting astonishing reviews and premiering on Consequence Of Sound and Exclaim. Shortly after getting together in 2012, the band from Doganella Del Ninfa, Italy, released their first self-titled EP and almost immediately sold-out, followed by their mind-blowing London live debut at The Shacklewell Arms.

                                                                                                  Since then, they have taken part in the Reverb Conspiracy compilation (curated by Fuzz Club and Austin Psych Fest) twice and toured intensively around Europe. They also shared stage with Damo Suzuki and collaborated with iconic Icelandic artist Jón Sæmundur aka Nonni Dead of Dead Skeletons, who did the cover art for the EP and joined them on stage at Eindhoven Psych Lab 2014. After leaving their fans lying in wait for a follow-up for two years, they are now about to release their debut album Neither Virtue Nor Anger, a double LP out on Fuzz Club Records on the 13th Of April 2015. Recorded in their studio between 2013 and 2014, Neither Virtue Nor Anger is something beyond the colourful blend of 60s Psychedelia, Folk, Krautrock, Shoegaze and Post-Punk anticipated by Locomotive. The more it progresses, the more it turns into a desperate stomping Bacchanalia, spiced up with an hypnotic flavour and distorted atmosphere a la Faust. Obscure ceremonies for Greek-Roman mystery rituals, songs like My Lunacy and Cancer are the perfect soundtrack for a futuristic and dystopian Fellini’s Satyricon.

                                                                                                  The album features the artwork of prominent Italian artist Mirco Maracci. His work has been exhibited in Palazzo Taverna in Roma in 2014, along with Andy Warhol, Giorgio De Chirico, Keith Haring and Amedeo Modigliani. Mixed by Fabio Vedardo at Circe (as in the mythological character) Digital Studio and mastered by Brett Orrison at The Austin Recording Service, Neither Virtue Nor Anger is anticipated by the video of Lost Reprise, by Emanuele Manco.

Previously unreleased 1970s studio out take material from Manchester’s Hairy legends Stack Waddy who played punk before punk was invented but were also blues , heavy rock, progressive, psychedelic etc - just music with balls. Loved by hippies, bikers, punks, plus music biz people like Steve Albini , Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and of course John Peel. A beautiful new gatefold Stack Waddy sleeve design by legendary Liverpool sleeve and music art designer Steve Jacuzzi Hardstaff ( he designed for Led Zeppelin in the 1970s) in the style of American underground comics. Andy Gill on Stack Waddy "if you’ve a penchant for sludgy proto-heavy metal in the vein of Black Sabbath. Then this is the band" // John Peel on Stack Waddy "their attitude was apalling but wonderful at the same time, they gave me a certain amount of grief but I have to say I really liked them. Their antics make even the most outrageous punk bands that came later seem so tame. They just played the same in the studio as they did live, hard loud and alcohol infused"

In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked them 78th on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time, and in 2010, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (via Wikipedia)

                                                                                                                                After two years of extensive crate-digging and foraging, UK psychedelic DJ duo the Amorphous Androgynous return with the latest installment in their award winning series ‘A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble (Exploding In Your Mind) - The Wizards Of Oz ‘

                                                                                                                                As the title suggests, ‘The Wizards Of Oz’ is devoted exclusively to the rich heritage of cosmic space music from AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND! In keeping with previous volumes of this acclaimed series, it traces the lineage from the sixties to the present day, reappraising the meaning of the term ‘psychedelic’ along the way. The tracks are expertly woven and mashed together to form a trip as enjoyable as it is both enlightening and educational.

                                                                                                                                Previously/also known as the Future Sound of London, the Amorphous Androgynous have managed to push their psychedelic manifesto far and wide in no small part down to the far reaching influence of their Monstrous Bubbles but also via their own radical psychedelic re-imaginings of other artists recordings including the likes of Oasis, Paul Weller, Syd Arthur, Pop Levi and DJ Food. In addition, they famously produced Noel Gallagher’s legendary ‘lost’ album of which two tracks will feature on Noel’s forthcoming album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ album in March 2015.

This set of roughhewn cobblestones was culled from the remnants of Cavern Sound - Independence, Missouri's subterranean studio of choice - and covers that thin swath of the late sixties when American teens were imitating the Beatles.

                                                                                                                                  All of the artists here barely mustered a session of cover tunes, much less a single, taking this compilation beyond Nuggets; these songs are gold flecks in the rustiest of mining pans.

                                                                                                                                    "The Memorabilia mixtape for Ràdio Web MACBA, which I have called 'Orator Verbis Eccentrix' (or Vocal Eclipses of Art), is based on what I consider to be a strong concept that encapsulates all of the aforementioned facets. All the collaged records on this mix are united by the prominent use of eccentric vocal manipulations of some sort – ranging from human existentialism, sound poetry, electronic distortions or mechanical and computerised degrading. Many of the records are free from language, purely melodic, insanely repetitive or onomatopoeic; other tracks are lyrically indecipherable while all of them are as challenging as they are enjoyable IMO. When I first started buying obscure records as a competitive teenage hip-hop producer (in a crew called Violators of the English Language) it quickly became apparent that I had to leave my comfort zone, which very quickly led to predominantly buying foreign music. As a teenage rapper and rap fan I had overdosed on 'words' at an early age. As an adult my favourite vocalists became Serge Gainsbourg and Damo Suzuki – I can't speak French and Damo sounded like he couldn't speak Earth. Long Live Lettrism.

                                                                                                                                    Perhaps pop music, like politics, is at its most POPular when it dishonestly tells you what you want to hear, but I still don't know what I want to hear, which is why I still love discovering pop music. In the era of Autotune the pop music politicians are desperately trying to sell us what they want us to hear as Harry Partch oscillates wildly in his grave... The military vocoder wasn't designed to be the bearer of good news, it was designed to keep secrets... Seek out Major Tompkins (Dave), a man that literally speaks his mind.

To misquote Mark E. Smith (one of the few lyricists that still holds my bad attention span) this is 'music perverted by language' or/and vice-versa and vocoded twice."
