Consistency Is The Enemy - 2023 Reissue

    Consistency Is The Enemy functions as the vinyl component of the Dirtbombs’ 2006 singles collection If You Don’t Already Have a Look. While that two disc, CD-only collection focused on the plethora of out-of-print vinyl singles the band had released up until that point, it also contained new songs and previously unreleased archival recordings. THOSE songs seemed to get lost in the shuffle and consequently, have never been released on vinyl until now. Highlights include tracks like “Here Comes That Sound Again” and “Candyass,” both consistent live favorites, or the quixotic cover of Yoko Ono’s “Kiss Kiss Kiss” not to mention the entirety of the Chariots of the Gods EP from 1999.

    Yo! Bum Rush The Show - 2023 Reissue

      With 1987's 'Yo! Bum Rush the Show', Public Enemy introduced a new kind of bravado that wasn't just directed at other players and sucker MCs but was an out-and-out middle-finger challenge to the whole world. PE, helped by Def Jam head Rick Rubin, crowd these tracks with disparate sounds that move your hips while they buzz from every channel. Despite Chuck and Flavor's serious posturing, you'll be grateful for the sloppy bass line in "Timebomb" and Terminator X's brilliant tone experiment (doffing its hat to Fred Wesley's 'Blow Your Head'), "Public Enemy No. 1."

      Christian Madden & The Enemy Chorus

      The Extra Weight

        ‘Whatever Best Serves’ is a whirlwind rush of organ led instrumental soul from Christian Madden & The Enemy Chorus, an ensemble of friends and cohorts fronted by the founder member of The Earlies and keyboard player in Liam Gallagher’s band.

        The album is scorched with the psychedelic funk rock heat of Booker T and Brian Auger, the punchy brass arrangements of Chicago Transit Authority and Tower of Power, and the kosmische motorik wonders of Can, Cluster and Harmonia.

        “I can honestly say I’ve never heard anything he’s played” – Liam Gallagher.

        “The only other keyboard virtuoso who can hold a candle to Christian wears a cape and performs on ice sometimes, he’s great but I’d go for this chap everytime personally” – Marc Riley.

        Public Enemy

        What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down

          Public Enemy rewrote the rules of hip-hop, becoming the most influential and controversial rap group of the late '80s and, for many, the definitive rap group of all time. Building from Run-D.M.C.'s street-oriented beats and Boogie Down Productions' proto-gangsta rhyming, Public Enemy pioneered a variation of hardcore rap that was musically and politically revolutionary. With his powerful, authoritative baritone, lead rapper Chuck D rhymed about all kinds of social problems, particularly those plaguing the black community, often condoning revolutionary tactics and social activism. In the process, he directed hip-hop toward an explicitly self-aware, pro-black consciousness that became the culture's signature throughout the next decade. While Public Enemy's early Def Jam albums, produced with the Bomb Squad, earned them a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, they continued to release relevant material up to and beyond their 2013 induction. Now, Public Enemy is back, and is ready to tell the world to once again FIGHT THE POWER!

          The Prodigy

          The Day Is My Enemy

            The Prodigy have always cut a solitary path through the noise-scapes of electronic dance music. They’ve dropped five epoch defining studio albums and delivered unforgettable live performances that have taken electronic beats into unchartered territories. Throughout this time they’ve remained resolutely focused on their own vision, inspiring legions of artists along the way.

            'The Day Is My Enemy' is probably the most British sounding album you’ll hear this year. Not British in the flag waving jingoistic sense, but in a way that understands that the nighttime spaces of urban Britain are a multi-hued cacophony of cultures. If Invaders Must Die was the sound of the rusted urban sprawl decaying like an open wound in the British countryside, then 'The Day is My Enemy' is about the angry humanity existing in the decay of the urban nightmare.


            The Enemy

            We'll Live And Die In These Towns

              Coventry's The Enemy round of an amazing year for them with the release of the title track of their debut album "We'll Live And Die In These Towns".

              The Enemy

              We'll Live And Die In These Towns

                Tipped as one of the most vital breakthrough bands of 2007, The Enemy follow their Top 10 hit single "Away From Here" with the release of their eagerly anticipated debut album "We'll Live And Die In These Towns". Forceful, hook filled tales of disaffection and discontent, kicking against the conformity of modern life.

                The Earlies

                The Enemy Chorus

                  The Earlies follow their critically adored 2004 debut "These Were The Earlies", with the release of their second album, "The Enemy Chorus". Produced by The Earlies and Tom Knott and recorded in Texas, Manchester and Burnley, "The Enemy Chorus" builds on the approach of "These Were The Earlies" with a rich and expansive sound, textured with an original progressive edge. Standout tracks such as "Burn The Liars", "Foundation And Earth", "Enemy Chorus" and "When The Wind Blows" evoke elements of The Flaming Lips, Spiritualized, Brian Wilson and Sigur Ros, yet the Texan/Mancunian quartet remain resolutely individual. The sound here is deep, lush and with a tasty, more electronic bottom-end (Warp Records?) this feels like a more modern record than their debut. The layers and attention to detail are staggering; it's shaping up to be a proper headphone masterpiece, an album to go on a journey with and another mysterious chapter for one of our most trusted bands. They're magicians!
