Pearls Before Swine

One Nation Underground (RSD23 EDITION)

    THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2023 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

    Double LP expanded re-issue of Pearls Before Swine's classic debut, plus unreleased extras, including demos, rehearsals and alternative versions. With faithfully recreated original sleeve and extensive notes, all created in collaboration with the Tom Rapp Estate. The psychedelic-folk debut from "one of the most erudite, literate minds in rock" a stunning piece of work, from the nightmarish sleeve art - the "Hell Panel" from Hieronymus Bosch's 15th century painting "Garden Of Delights" - to the strange yet powerful songs." AllMusic. "From moody, poetic gems to the anger and intensity of the bitter anti-war anthem, "Uncle John". Fiercely unique and individual sounding." Goldmine. "A high of psychedelic delicacy and deceptive urgency, one of his masterpieces." Rolling Stone.

    Pearls Before Swine

    Balaklava (RSD23 EDITION)

      THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2023 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

      Double LP expanded re-issue of Pearls Before Swine's follow up to "One Nation Underground", plus a second disc of unreleased extras including demos, rehearsals and alternative versions. With a faithfully recreated original sleeve and extensive notes, produced in collaboration with the Tom Rapp Estate. "The near-brilliant follow-up intended as a defiant condemnation of the Vietnam War, it doesn't offer anthemic, fist-pounding protest songs. Instead, Tom Rapp vented his anger through surrealist poetry, irony, and historical reference." AllMusic. "A high point in his recorded output." Goldmine. "A high of psychedelic delicacy and deceptive urgency, one of his masterpieces." Rolling Stone.

      Pearls Before Swine

      The Wizard Of Is

        Remastered and re-appraised 31-track collection of Pearls Before Swine rarities from the private tape collection of the late, great Tom Rapp. Also available as an expanded 45 track double CD collection.

        For the first time on vinyl, this beautiful collection brings together alternate versions of Rapp originals ‘The Jeweler’, ‘Translucent Carriages’ and ‘Rocket Man’. It also includes jaw-dropping covers of Rapp’s contemporaries Cohen, Dylan and Joni Mitchell, with bonus download material featuring seven amazing live versions plus a never before released intimate show at The Other End circa 1976.

        A goldmine of possibilities from a prospector with a silver tongue and stories to tell. ‘The Wizard Of Is’ is a weird and wonderful trip inside its creator’s mind, from sonnets and space hymns to stories of revolution and the war. It’s an American Gothic fantasy that straddles old tyme America and the outer edges of an imagined stratosphere.

        “Extremely influential.” Rolling Stone.
        “A more intoxicating version of folk psychedelia.” Wire magazine.
        “Shimmering folk hymns.” Spin magazine.
        “Unabashedly poetic.” Crawdaddy.

          Pearls Before Swine / Chinese Rocks

            What are these Precious Jules that all the ladies truly covert, they’ll lead you to your certain ruin and then think nothing of it. Dangling surreptitiously, yet somehow in your faces, deflating your economy to inflate your airs and graces. What are these Precious Jules that shine so dark before us, dazzling darkness all around only to ignore us, what are these Precious Jules so idly hanging round Your precious necks or In your ear Wishing only to be found. Acceptable for come what may With ‘come what maybe’ clowns Precious Jules are Kim Salmon and Mike Stranges residing in Melbourne, operating as a slick pop partnership, masquerading as a ‘glam/punk’ combo, masquerading as a ‘garage’ duo. Precious Jules are "Pearls Before Swine" backed with "Chinese Rocks" on 7 inches of the best use of poly vinyl chloride you are likely to encounter!
