Wild

    “Wild” is drawn from Spoon’s forthcoming full-length, Lucifer on the Sofa. The song captures the band at its most visceral and vivid, with rough edges intact and a guitar solo perfectly slotted into the middle eight.

    This 7” single version comes backed with an alternate mix by British reggae innovator Dennis Bovell.

    Age Of Love

    The Age Of Love - Inc. Charlotte De Witte & Enrico Sangiuliano / Jam & Spoon Remixes

    I gotta admit, I tried not to stock this record. Seeing Charlotte De Witte and her fiancé parade around Formular One, exotic mountain sides and some fancy Vancian rooftop locations in order to shoot THREE (count em!) different promo videos of exactly the same song, with them pathetically pretending to 'play' their remix live... OFF A FUCKING DJ CONTROLLER!! I mean, the term business techno could be more appropriate here. Apparently they were selling lame t-shirts promoting the track for $50 each too... fuck me!

    Anyway, thankfully this version DOES come with Jam & Spoon's beachball friendly remix AND the inspired original track which, when you think that it was released in 1990; pretty much set one of the blueprints and high watermarks of the trance genre before it really exploded post-'92.

    So yeah, if your original copy is hammered to death, and you can put up with these two clowns attempting to remix a track that they'll never be able to do justice, this record is for you! Honestly, it's worth it for the Jam & Spoon version...Plus some of the comments on Reddit..

    Matt says: Charlotte De Witte takes it upon herself to have a go at this early trance prototype. The results are lack-lustre but thankfully the original and Jam & Spoons mixes more than make up for it.

    Can

    Monster Movie - 2022 Coloured Vinyl Edition

      Following the release of the first two parts of CAN’s live series, Mute and Spoon Records reissue a limited edition run of Monster Movie on blue vinyl.

      With the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Captain Beefheart and The Velvet Underground ringing in their ears, Holger Czukay and Irmin Schmidt left behind their careers in academia to form the influential group in the late 60s. Together with Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit and American singer Malcolm Mooney, they recorded their debut album Monster Movie in a castle near Cologne in 1968. The record was then remastered in 2004 from the original master tape for a CD release. It was overseen by Holger, Irmin and Jono Podmore to refine it to how it was always intended to be heard.

      “Monster Movie is an amazing debut” Pitchfork

      “Monster Movie, sounds like nothing else released in 1969 - and still acts as a template for the future” Sound Affects

      “Had Can’s debut album, Monster Movie, been their only one, it would have assured their place in the history of German music and of rock as a whole” Shindig Magazine

      Soundtracks - 2022 Coloured Vinyl Edition

        Following the release of the first two parts of CAN's live series, Mute and Spoon Records reissue a limited edition run of Soundtracks on clear purple vinyl.

        Soundtracks, a compilation of songs Can had composed for different movies, was released in 1970 before the band started work on their second album. This record said goodbye to the band's original vocalist Malcolm Mooney, who features on ‘Soul Desert’ and ‘She Brings The Rain’, to be replaced by Japanese singer Damo Suzuki. Bridging the gap between the improvisatory rock jams of their earlier recordings, Monster Movie and Delay 1968, Soundtracks also laid the foundations for their more electronic and experimental sounding work, such as Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi.

        Spoon

        Lucifer On The Sofa

          Spoon’s tenth album, Lucifer on the Sofa, is the band’s purest rock ’n roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade. Written and recorded over the last two years – both in and out of lockdown – these songs mark a shift toward something louder, wilder, and more full-colour.

          From the detuned guitars anchoring “The Hardest Cut,” to the urgency of “Wild," to the band’s blown-out cover of the Smog classic “Held,” Lucifer on the Sofa bottles the physical thrill of a band tearing up a packed room. It’s an album of intensity and intimacy, where the music’s harshest edges feel as vivid as the directions quietly murmured into the mic on the first-take. According to frontman Britt Daniel, “It’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton.”

            Barry says: There's not much I can tell you here that you won't already know.. this is the second wonderfully pressed collection from Can of live performances following 'Live In Stuttgart' that was released in May. There are very few musicians that could pull off this level of out-there musicianship, and this is a wonderful and accurate document of their live legacy. Essential.

An intoxicating and transportive collection, and an essential document of one of the greatest Krautrock pioneers in the biz.

              Can

              Future Days - Coloured Vinyl Reissue

                Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilise and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.

                Damo Suzuki’s last album with Can as Vocalist. Only 4 tracks, but includes the astonishing 20 minute version of Bel Air and the 3 minute pop masterpiece Moonshake. This 1973 epic encapsulates everything great about Can then and now.

                Can’s powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.

                "Can are impossible to classify and it’s impossible to ignore their seismic influence on so many diverse musical paths" Richard Hawley.

                "Can are the most revolutionary band ever" Stephen Morris (New Order).

                                Soft Effects is released as part of the Slay On Cue series, which will see the reissue of the band’s first eight records in original editions - Telephono (1996), Soft Effects EP (1996), A Series Of Sneaks (1998), Girls Can Tell (2001), Kill The Moonlight (2002), Gimme Fiction (2005), Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007) and Transference (2010).

                                “Some of these albums haven’t been available on vinyl or CD in years, and in some places they never actually came out,” says frontman Britt Daniel.

                                Nocturne (Live At The Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival)

                                  Live album from legendary founder of CAN.

                                  Nocturne (live at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival) comprises three pieces performed live on a partly prepared piano, along additional pre-recorded soundscapes.

                                  The live performance of ‘Klavierstück II’ is a pensive improvisation using essential elements of the original piece.

                                  ‘Nocturne’ starts with the ambient sounds whilst the piano seemingly melts into the soundscape and eventually grows into a long meditative piano solo.

                                  ‘Yonder’ is a much more dramatic piece, dominated by the overwhelming sounds of church bells, a sort of “dies irai”, radical, emotional and fiercely poetic.

                                  Everything Hits At Once: The Best Of Spoon

                                    Spanning a career well into its third decade, Spoon returns with a ‘Best Of’compilation, ‘Everything Hits At Once: The Best of Spoon' In addition to the 12 fan-adored tracks making up this single LP, Spoon return with the bold new single “No Bullets Spent.” How many rock bands from the past 25 years could get away with a greatest-hits album? Spoon stand alone, with a career-spanning retrospective culled from all over their unique songbook. It’s a flawless compilation of their best-known, best-loved tunes, yet it’s still full of surprises—the only thing you could expect from a band that’s spent their whole career taking people by surprise.

                                    Barry says: For a mindblowing nine albums worth of material, it's hard to collate a 'Best Of' that accurately represents a band who have consistently and reliably smashed it out of the park. There are none of the big hits here that I wouldn't expect to be here, The Underdog sounds every bit the proto punk-folk clanger it was back in 2007, 'I Turn My Camera Off' kicks things off and I honestly couldn't think of a better appetiser than that. This is a brilliantly diverse and essential summary of a great band at a ridiculously good price. Get on it!

                                    Produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann, Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors have created the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their illustrious career.

                                    Reuniting the band with the label that released their 1996 debut, ‘Telephono’, and following on Spoon’s streak of three consecutive US Top 10 albums—‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’ (2007), ‘Transference’ (2010) and ‘They Want My Soul’ (2014)—‘Hot Thoughts’ is nothing short of epic. Listening to ‘Hot Thoughts’, it’s instantly apparent why Spoon are considered one of the most critically acclaimed acts of the first decade of the new millennium. 

                                    Within the space of 10 captivating songs – all written by Britt Daniel- ‘Hot Thoughts’ creates a musical universe all its own, with individual worlds ranging from the kaleidoscopic opening/title track through the gargantuan stomp of “Do I Have To Talk You Into It” and ubiquitous wiry hooks of “Can I Sit Next To You" to the bittersweet “I Ain’t The One” and beyond.

                                    Barry says: As addictive, funked up rhythms give way to distorted bursts and effervescent vocal melodies, this sonically fascinating but brilliantly accessible LP twists and turns break into pulsing synth pop and grooving head-nodders.

                                    Spoon’s classic ‘Gimme Fiction’ celebrates its 10th anniversary with a deluxe version released on Matador Records.

                                    The reissue contains the original album newlyremastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, a digital download of nine additional bonus tracks and a full colour book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album by The AV Club’s Sean O’Neal. The deluxe LP package also includes tipped sleeves, a 24” x 36” poster and a digital download of all songs.

                                    ‘Gimme Fiction’ dragged the sonic pointillism of ‘Kill The Moonlight’ further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip hop samples to horse whinnies. Whatever digging or strange alchemy had to go into it, they only produced more gold.

                                    ‘Gimme Fiction’ deserves special recognition as the album where Spoon took creative and stylistic quantum leaps that resulted in classics ‘I Turn My Camera On’, ‘The Beast And Dragon Adored’, ‘My Mathematical Mind’, ‘I Summon You’ and so many more. 10 years later, ‘Gimme Fiction’ gets the deluxe release it so richly deserves.

                                    Wooden Spoon 3

                                      "Wooden Spoon 3" is a continuation from his first two releases on Brad Rose's Foxglove imprint. The album has three superb tracks entitled "Three Pieces For Piano, Synthesizer, Organ & Tape Loop". The centrepiece is a wonderful 20 minute plus repetitive dronework.

                                      Electric Spoon

                                      You

                                        Welcome to the world of Electric Spoon - a tale of three castaways, hair and colours, standing on the edge of sound looking at each other starting a search for all their electric sisters and brothers. The journey begins at Marquis Cha Cha with "You" - a sound for hearts and minds, part of the earth's rhythm, their peace of mind rests in sound, colours are their stepping stones – a home for hearts and minds. The sound here is very akin to an Alan Lomax field recording (deliberately crackly, not a bad pressing!) of The Rolling Stones - circa "Sticky Fingers".

                                        Can

                                        Flow Motion

                                          Originally released in 1976, this album features their chart 'hit' single, the cosmic disco infused "I Want More". A diverse album which was actually Can's most commercially successful album.

                                          Delay 1968

                                            Although recorded in the late 60s, the material included on "Delay 1968" did not appear commercially until 1981. A collection of cuts featuring early vocalist Malcolm Mooney, these seven songs are among the very first Can ever recorded. As an early insight to the future sound of the krautrock legends this features some essential tracks like "Thief", "Butterfly" and "Uphill".

                                            Mine says: If you have always found Can a little too weird and don't know where to start, this one's for you. Delay 1968 is a brilliant but very approachable album by the German Krautrock pioneers. It is by far my favourite and I have yet to play it to someone who doesn't like it!

                                            Future Days

                                              Originally released in 1973, "Future Days" was probably the most balanced albums from these Krautrock legends. Dreamy and pulsating cosmic music with more melodic overtones compared to their earlier albums. From the glorious opening rumblings of the title track through to the epic hazy transcendence of the 20 minute closer "Bel Air" this was Can at the height of their powers. An essential album!

                                              Can

                                              Ege Bamyasi

                                                Recorded in their own Inner Space Studio in 1972, this was yet another landmark krautrock moment. Following on from the genius "Tago Mago" album was never going to be easy, but this was Can working at their peak. Another classic album featuring the genius shuffling drum beat of Jaki Liebezeit, the rhythmic grooves the towering kosmic guitars and experimental almost free-jazz approach. In a word this is magnificent, every home should have one!!!!!

                                                Can

                                                Monster Movie

                                                  The first album from Can and featuring the vocals of Malcolm Mooney, an African American sculptor artist. Possibly the rawest and rockiest of all Can's releases, this combined all the elements of Can, the classic krautrock groove, their shuffling funkiness and the stoned psyche guitar freakouts.

                                                  Can

                                                  Soundtracks

                                                  For their second album Can decided to release a collection of tracks that they had recorded in 1969 and 1970 for movies. Surprisingly considering that these tracks also feature different vocalists they gel into a cohesive album very well. Malcolm Mooney the original vocalist had a breakdown and returned to America and he was replaced during this time by the enigmatic Damo Suzuki. A sometimes overlooked album this is an essential groove laden krautrock classic.
