Drop 1 Add N to XOn The Wires of Our NervesSoul Jazz Records2LPIn the space of five short years (and as many albums) at the end of the 20th century, Add N To X caused havoc with their unique retro-futurist electronic music. Add N To X’s musical intensity proved too much for the group who split up in 2002. Their album On The Wires of Our Nerves, complete with its classic cover image, recorded on Soul Jazz Records’ then new offshoot label Satellite Records, launched them into the spotlight and included two NME Singles of the Week ‘Black Regent’ and ‘King Wasp’. Over twenty years since it was first released and long out of print the album ‘On The Wires of Our Nerves’ stands up one of the most forward-looking electronic albums of then and now. This classic album is released in a very limited one-off pressing silver coloured vinyl edition as a Record Store Day exclusive title. A

A three-track limited edition 45 that is the official song for the WALES National football team as they head into this summer’s EURO 2020 Tournament. 

Wales kick off their campaign against Switzerland on June 12th 2021, the very same day as Record Store Day 2021 with The Alarm capturing the atmosphere and spirit of the Wales fans through the sure to be terrace anthems ‘RED WALL OF CYMRU’ and ‘RED DRAGON TATTOO. These are joined by a reworking of the band’s classic Spirit Of ’76 as SPIRIT OF ’58’, which lyrically celebrates Wales only World Cup Tournament [which also happened to be the first ever such event back in 1958 when Wales made it to the quarter finals only to be knocked by Brazil and a goal scored by the soon to be legendary PELE.] 

The Alarm Spirit of ’58 is sure to appeal to Alarm fans around the world and fans and supporters of the WALES team. 

These recordings are unique to the EP as they are the original demonstration versions and therefore even more collectible for fans and supporters alike.

Drop 2 Ani DiFrancoAni DiFrancoRighteous BabeYellow and Black Splatter 2LP Originally released in 1990, Ani DiFranco’s first album is so revolutionary that the purveyors of status quo install women’s music sections in the dusty corner of their stores in order to hide it. Dorm rooms coast to coast transform into audio dub houses where young women with aching arms scratch out hand written labels and personal letters like “you have to hear this.” These quasi-booking agent and pirate distributors work long into the night purchasing greyhound tickets for a certain young Folksinger to come play at their school. Today. Folk and poetry prevail. Vulnerable stories arm themselves as powerful songs on Ani DiFranco’s self-titled first solo record. Ani’s voice is rich and eloquent. Her guitar moves like an appendage. From cockroach pus to abortion rights the record doesn’t flinch. This singer/songwriter folk mecca contains songs with an epic stage life such as, “Both Hands,” “Out of Habit,” “The Slant,” and “Fire Door.” All of the tracks embody the love and humor inherent in Ani’s music. Thematically this record gives a face to feminism that is both beautiful and accessible to anyone. The stories focus on relationships and humanity. We sit in the waiting room of an abortion clinic after facing an angry crowd in “Lost Woman Song.” “Talk to Me Now” and “The Story” confront the inequality of the sexes in a man’s world. The love songs examine relationships with the same discernment as the political ones. “Both Hands” is a hands down favorite among any DiFranco fan. “Every Angle” infuses the thrill of protest with the joy of a crush, “thoughts of you are picketing my brain/ they refuse to work such long hours without rest/ in unstable conditions at best.” And the unforgettably poetic and guitarific, “Fire Door” is a heartfelt treat in it’s first studio recording.FolkFolk750 UK / 300 EU2250

Drop 1Art Blakey And His Jazz MessengersChippin’ InTidal Waves Music2XLP with insertArt Blakey (1919–1990) actually needs little introduction, the American Jazz drummer and bandleader made a name for himself in the 1940s & 1950s playing with contemporaries such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. He is often considered to have been Thelonious Monk’s most empathetic drummer (he played on both Monk’s first recording session in 1947 and his final one in 1971). In the decades that followed Blakey recorded for all THE labels that mattered in the field of jazz (Columbia, Blue Note, Atlantic, RCA, Impulse!, Riverside, Prestige, Verve, etc.). His collaborations were numerous and include working with equally legendary artists such as Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Chet Baker, John Coltrane….and countless others.JazzJazz500N/A

Drop 1Asian Dub FoundationAccess DeniedX-Ray Production2LP / CD / digitalIn the mid-1950s he and Horace Silver formed ‘The Jazz Messengers’: a group that Blakey would perform and record with for the next 35 years. Originally formed as a collective of contemporaries…but over the years the band became known as an incubator for young talent that included artists such as Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Cedar Walton, Chuck Mangione, John Hicks…and MANY others. Art Blakey went on to record dozens of albums with a constantly changing group of Jazz Messengers. Blakey’s final performances were in July 1990. He died on October 16 of lung cancer. The legacy of Art Blakey and his band is not only the music they produced, but also the opportunities they provided for several generations of jazz musicians.ElectronicReggae5002000

Drop 1Baby StrangeIn The FleshIcons Creating Evil Art7″Due for release straight off the back of the hotly anticipated Baby Strange EP ‘Land of Nothing’ in March, this double A-Side 7” has been created exclusively for Record Store Day 2021 and features a brand-new Baby Strange studio release ‘In the Flesh’ alongside a cover of Icons Creating Evil Art label mate Nicky William’s ‘Pathetic Fuck’. 

In the flesh is a commentary on the role social media continues to play within people’s lives. Now more so than ever, leading to life in a post-pandemic world, the gap in behaviour between on-screen personalities & the same people In The Flesh has never been greater! 

“Is your lighting right, will you swipe tonight? Never in The Flesh”

With angst laden vocals laid over the rhythmic urgency of the bass and drums, this is a Baby Strange song that will strike hard with the bands ever increasing fan base.
Picking the song for the session, Johnny Madden remembers: After signing with ICEA, I was browsing their catalogue and just fell in love with Nicky William, his baritone voice and his style is so unique. I came across Pathetic Fuck and just knew we had to do it.

It went so well in fact, that Baby Strange recorded their version in the studio, with Chris Marshall (Gerry Cinnamon), and release it to their fans as a collectors edition single for Record Store Day 2021. Fans can expect a stripped back punk purist aesthetic blended with the undoubtedly Baby Strange style that their fans have come to expect.

Drop 2Bill FayTime Of The Last Persecution – Decca/Deram 1971UMC1LPOften labelled as enigmatic, Bill Fay’s loyal cult following has grown significantly over the years. Signed to Decca, the singer-songwriter and pianist released two albums in 1970 and 1971; their haunting, darkly shadowed songs were never meant to appeal to the masses, even at the height of the psychedelia-streaked introspection sparked by the soul-searching and ravaging events of the day. The title track, Time of the Last Persecution, was written in an immediate and visceral response to the killings of four students at Kent State.

However, Fay’s records fell into obscurity, and he virtually vanished from music for more than two decades. Producer Joshua Henry, who had grown up listening to Fay’s early albums from his father’s record collection, tracked down and finally persuaded the reclusive songwriter to record again and hired Matt Deighton to assemble a studio band.

The end result, Life Is People, appeared in August of 2012. Fay played live shows, but maintained his privacy. He released a follow-up, Who Is the Sender? in 2015, and a third album, Countless Branches in 2020. Among his fans are musicians including Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, and The War On Drugs. All three albums received universal critical acclaim. Side 1

Drop 1 Billy NomatesBilly NomatesInvada Records12″ Picture DiscSpecial ltd edition picture disc variant of the critically acclaimed Billy Nomates debut album available for RSD. After huge support from record stores and BBC 6 music alike, the original variant was a big seller for stores and sold out fast. This exclusive variant will be a popular one. Housed in a deluxe spined sleeve including printed insert with hand written lyrics and digital download card. The songs on her debut album all come from a place of defiance. Rebellion against Brexit. Against soul-sapping, dead-end jobs and zero-hours contracts. Against gender inequality, sexual harassment and festivals with obligatory female acts hidden in the small print. Billy’s songs lampoon the same bleak reality satirised by her beloved Scarfolk website and explored so abrasively in the fringe theatre she finds solace in. Musically, there are snatches of Nick Cave’s rumbling sprechgesang; the “off-the-wall-ness of musicians like Captain Beefheart”; Sleaford Mods’ febrile post-punk; the groovesome lofi art-rock of Sonic Youth; and the brassy Americana of Emmylou Harris. What dominates, though, is a feeling of release. Of letting it all out.The track ‘Supermarket Sweep’ features guest vocals by Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods.PunkIndie900100

Drop 2 Black SpidersBlack SpidersDark RidersLPBlack Spiders – Those Trusted And True Sons Of The North Are Back. “We knew the new album had to be special. We’ve been away for a while. The first album was a straight shot, the second on the rocks, with this new one we had to kick down the brewery doors!” Pete Spiby. Back in June of 2017, Sheffield rock beasts Black Spiders waved goodbye to an army of loyal fans with some sonically charged shows before retreating into the shadows. And then, in November of last year, with the world in the grips of the Coronavirus pandemic and after a long year of very little fun from out of the silhouettes they returned with ‘Fly In The Soup’, the first new Black Spiders music in 6 years. Exactly the feel-good shot in the arm the world needed, while we await that other vaccine. The seeds of the Black Spider return were actually planted last summer, when singer and guitarist Pete Spiby began taking to guitarist Ozzy Lister to start writing new material and before they knew it, they had amassed the best part of 40 songs in a very short period of time which they whittled down. And then the pandemic hit. “It’s certainly been a strange process, in unfamiliar territory,” explains Pete. “We started to look at how we could do it given the restrictions and not only that, but we had to replace our original drummer too. For us and probably most other bands, we would usually take a riff or song idea to a rehearsal and thrash it out ‘till we either had something or it ended up in the song graveyard! This time around we couldn’t do that, so myself, Ozzy and on occasion Adam Irwin (bass player) started to send ideas back and forth until we had something to work with in GarageBand. We got to a point where we had enough song ideas with basic structure to go into a studio. It was at this point when we had to look for a new drummer.” With former drummer ‘Tiger’ Si Atkinson unavailable to play, with a week or two of grooming, the band took a chance on Planet Rock DJ Wyatt Wendel to occupy the drum stool. “I’ve never joined or worked with a band in this way EVER,” laughs Wyatt. “2020 certainly made it surreal. “A Pete/Ozzy writing session at the beginning of the year had produced some promising results, but it felt like barriers were popping up everywhere,” explains bassist Adam Irwin. “We started talking about how we could use technology such as GarageBand to help, and slowly but surely the song writing gathered pace. It was time to hook up with our old producer Matt Elliss and try these new songs out in the studio. “Heading into the studio to record songs we’d written but never played together, with a drummer that we’d never met, is one of the stranger experiences I’ve had while being in a band. Thankfully, Wyatt has turned out to be an excellent addition, who despite his faults (loud, southern) has fit right into the band dynamic. Covid has made life really tough for so many of us in our industry. And yet, this new way of song writing has been liberating, this is the most consistent and prolific we’ve ever been, and I am immensely proud of this album.” Against all of the odds, Black Spiders have crafted an album that features 13 tracks of high-energy, feel-good rock n’roll contrasted by demonic doom that despite the disjointed, isolated way it was recorded. It sounds like a band, firing on all cylinders. “We had to dig down deep to pull out some gems and what would we want from Black Spiders,” questions Pete. War, vengeance, mental health, death, conservation & climate change, where are we from? Relationships, friendships, our flaws. Where are we going? Alien life and Mother Earth – some of which made the record.” Kicking off with the aforementioned ‘Fly In The Soup’ single, this 3rd ST long-player wastes no time in grabbing you by the scruff of the neck and dragging you through an album where good times, hooks and riffs are not in short supply, but the doom-drenched likes of ‘Wizard Shall Not Kill Wizard’ and the psychedelic groove of album closer ‘Crooked Black Wings’ give us an album of many moods and dynamics and a reason to be cheerful in 2021. And why does the album have no title? “It wasn’t hard picking a title for the album, as we decided that the focus should be on the band, not the album title, so we decided not to have one. Let the music do the talking…. Tracklisting: 1. Fly In The Soup 2. Stabbed In The Back 3. Wizard Shall Not Kill Wizard 4. Back In The Convent 5. Give Em What They Want 6. Good Times 7.

Drop 1Blackbeard (Dennis Bovell)I Wah DubPLG UK Catalog1 LP Black VinylBorn in Barbados in 1953, reggae guitarist Dennis Bovell (aka Blackbeard) was one of the key figures on the London reggae scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s, not only as a solo artist but also as a producer. I Wah Dub was released in 1980, carrying on Bovell’s eclectic sensibilities and is an example of a classic British dub album which has long since been out of print on vinyl although it was remastered and reissued CD and released on Zonophone in 2003. Bovell’s huge influence on black British music cannot be underestimated. It will be available on vinyl once again, exclusively for RSD 2021.

Drop 2Bobbie GentryWindows Of the WorldUMC1LPBobbie’s journey from country singer-songwriter to blue eyed soul diva stopped off at a hitherto unknown destination along the way. Before she arrived at Muscle Shoals to work her magic with the late great Rick Hall, Bobbie cut a laid back album of classic and contemporary jazz tunes that was abandoned before it had chance to see the light of day. This was a shame, as Bobbie proves herself as adept in this genre as in any other. This self-produced collection first saw the light of day on the Bobbie Gentry boxset, but this lost album deserves to have its own separate release and what better format than vinyl? The set exudes a sophisticated and intimate late-night vibe mostly featuring Bobbie alone with her guitar accompanied by a bass player; occasionally there is a whisper of strings from Jimmie Haskell who famously composed the cello and violin arrangement on Ode to Billie Joe. Gentry fans will find much to love in Bobbie’s short lived but brilliant turn as a jazz singer. The original 8 tracks to be supplemented by the ‘I Didn’t Know’ and ‘Hushabye Mountain’ demos recorded around the same time, this LP also features the previously unreleased Hushabye Mountain [alternate version]. 1.

Drop 2Captain BeefheartUnconditionally GuaranteedUMC1LP ColouredUniversally recognized as being the works of a true maverick genius, the canon of recordings by the late, great Captain Beefheart aka Don Van Vliet – often ably assisted by his Magic Band – rank amongst the most important and influential rock music ever created and continue to inform and influence musicians to this day whilst also garnering a following of new, young musically adventurous rock fans along the way.

Within these works the 1974 album “Unconditionally Guaranteed” is a true hidden gem which has been rightfully elevated to cult status over the years since its first appearance.

Originally released by Virgin Records in the UK (and Mercury Records in the USA) “Unconditionally Guaranteed” represents a fascinating pivot point within Beefheart’s recordings.

Known as he was for his more oblique amalgams of delta blues, avant-garde jazz and rock on albums such as “Trout Mask Replica” and “Clear Spot”, “Unconditionally Guaranteed” captures a musical moment when Beefheart deviates from that path and embarks on an exploration of more melodic soundscapes into which he continues to contribute his uniquely poetic lyrics delivered via his instantly recognizable vocals.

The 10 tracks on “Unconditionally Guaranteed” include a bevy of elliptical yet beautiful love songs such as “This is the Day” and the wonderful “Lazy Music” which is undoubtedly one of Beefheart’s most ravishing and mesmeric recordings. By contrast the album opener “Upon The My-O-My” is a great example of Beefheart and The Magic Band delivering their trademark, earthy take on rock at its very best.

On “Unconditionally Guaranteed” Beefheart is ably assisted by a fantastic line-up of the ever-changing Magic Band that includes key alumni such as Zoot Horn Rollo, Art Tripp, Rockette Morton and Alex Saint Claire. The album is produced by Andy Di Martino.

Unavailable on vinyl for over 20 years this Record Store Day 2021 reissue of “Unconditionally Guaranteed” will return this fantastic album to the vinyl racks where it should be.

Drop 1 Carla WhitneyChoker Campbell & The Super SoundsAtticLPCarla Whitney (with Choker Campbell and the Super Sounds), a relatively unknown soul gem that has flown under the radar since its release 46 years ago. Backed by Motown royalty Choker Campbell, the velvet-throated Whitney is like Aretha, Marlena Shaw and Vicki Anderson all rolled into one, flitting from cottony crooners to full-out funk stormers. Campbell was the leader of Motown’s live band, the saxophonist and conductor who kept any number of Motortown Revue shows driving along. A respected leader of men, and later a talented producer. Somehow in 1975 the nearly 60-year-old Campbell managed to find his way to Canada, where he hooked up with the little-known but dyno-voiced Carla Whitney in Toronto, producing the only LP she would ever make and issuing it on the then-obscure Attic label. For the first time since its original release Attic are reissuing the album for RSD 2021, at a lot cheaper price than the original copies, if you can find one (£500!) 180g heavyweight vinyl.SoulGospel500500

Drop 1Cat StevensHarold & MaudeUMC1LP Colour – 2 different colours are availableThis release is being offered in 2 different coloured vinyl, Orange & Yellow, the quantities for all territories will be split 50/50

The Paramount movie Harold and Maude was in December 1971 and in the almost fifty years since its release, has become a cult classic. Part of the reason for its success is undoubtedly its soundtrack, which is comprised exclusively of songs by Cat Stevens.

The majority of tracks are taken from the two 1970 Island/A&M albums, Mona Bone Jakon and Tea for the Tillerman, but Cat Stevens also composed two original songs for the film, “Don’t Be Shy” and “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out”, as well as performing instrumental and alternative versions.

The Harold and Maude soundtrack was first released in super limited quantities on multiple coloured LP versions in 2007 via Cameron Crowe’s Vinyl Films label (copies now trade for hundreds of dollars or more via Discogs). Finally presented in its first Island/A&M release, this new 50th anniversary Record Store Day , on coloured 180g vinyl, will boast some key differences:

Drop 1ChapterhouseRownderbowt (Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL4LP, Blue & White marbled vinyl, numberedChapterhouse was a British shoegaze band of the early 1990s, originally from Reading, England. Formed in 1987 by Andrew Sherriff and Stephen Patman, the band began performing alongside Spacemen 3. 
The Rownderbowt compilation, a highly-coveted 4-LP set features their biggest hits, rare tracks, various B-sides, demos and a remix of “We Are Beautiful” by Spooky.
Rownderbowt was originally released on cd-only by Dedicated in 1996 and serves as a reminder to Chapterhouse fans about what the band might eventually do should it decide to record again.
Patman quotes “We were writing a lot of material in the lead in to splitting up, and we ended up with a lot of songs which the label was not releasing because they wanted to have a hit single, and we were just not that type of band. And a lot of that ended up on Rownderbowt, and that represents that side of us more.”
Sherriff sees some of those demos and unreleased tracks as a blueprint for where Chapterhouse not only might have once gone, but could possibly go one day in the future..
Rownderbowt turns 25 in 2021.

Drop 1 Charlie ParkerBird in LAVerve4LPCharlie Parker spent more time in Los Angeles than anywhere outside of Kansas City and New York City. This historic release brings together previously unknown and unissued recordings along with rarities captured during three of the four California trips Bird made during his too-short life.
Among the crown jewels on this set are “How High the Moon” and “Fifty-Second Street Theme” from his historic engagement with Dizzy Gillespie at Billy Berg’s in 1945. Also included are three previously unknown performances from a 1948 “Jazz at the Philharmonic” concert at the Shrine Auditorium. Most intriguingly, the complete recordings of the infamous July 1952 “naked party” at the Altadena ranch of Jirayr Zorthian are included. Recording engineer Doug Benson has done a remarkable job of restoring these recordings to the highest possible audio fidelity.
Included in this set is an extensive essay by producer John Burton describing the circumstances under which these recordings were made as well as rarely-seen photographs from Bird’s trips to L.A.

Drop 1 Chet BakerCool CatTidal Waves MusicLPChet Baker (1929 – 1988) was an American jazz trumpeter, actor and vocalist that needs little introduction. Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s but his well-publicized drug habit also drove his notoriety (he was in and out of jail frequently before enjoying a career resurgence in the late ‘70s and ’80s). Chet’s career included collaborations with greats such as Elvis Costello, Charlie Parker and Van Morrison. Mr. Baker was the subject of many books and documentaries throughout the decades and he was even portrayed by Ethan Hawke in the 2015 film Born to Be Blue. 
Chet began his musical career singing in a church choir and his mother said that he had begun to memorize tunes on the radio before he was even given his first instrument. Peers called Baker a natural musician to whom playing came effortlessly. In the early 1950s he was chosen by Charlie Parker for a series of West Coast engagements…shortly after this, his song “My Funny Valentine” became a hit and would be associated with Baker for the rest of his career. Mr. Baker (with his quartet) was a regular performer at famous Los Angeles jazz clubs such as The Haig.
Chet Baker’s quartet released popular albums between 1953 and 1956 and he won reader’s polls at Metronome & Down Beat magazine, beating trumpeters Miles Davis and Clifford Brown. In 1956, Pacific Jazz Records released Chet Baker Sings, an album that seriously increased his visibility. During most of the 1960s (before heading to Europe more frequently) Chet recorded music that could be classified as ‘West Coast jazz’ 
From 1978 until his death in 1988, Chet Baker lived and played almost exclusively in Europe, returning to the U.S. once a year for a few performances. This was Baker’s most prolific era as a recording artist.
On the album we are presenting you today (Cool Cat) you’ll find Dutch recordings (recorded in 1986 & released in 1989). This rare gem of an album is comprised out of tracks written by some of the top jazz composers of all time (including Thelonious Monk) and played meticulously by Baker and his all-star line-up consisting out of Jon Burr (Yo-Yo Ma), Ben Riley (Sonny Rollins, Alice Coltrane, Thelonious Monk) and many others.
Be prepared for six sublime tunes that bring out the more intimate and touching aspects of the Chet Baker sound, a fantastic session where the master plays his themes with an almost religious surrender. On Cool Cat the listener is treated to a mix of both instrumentals and mid-sung tunes with very moving vocals. The trumpeter’s laid-back breathy approach and perfectly placed notes in combination with his superb rhythm section provides the listener with an unmistakable evidence that Baker still had considerable powers as a musician late in his career. Despite a seemingly chaotic and nomadic life, there is an unmistakable serenity emerging from the trumpeter’s sound throughout the album…a deep and touching beauty can be felt, marking this as one of Chet’s best from the period. 

Originally recorded in 1986 and released in 1989 on Timeless Records, the legendary Dutch jazz label run by Ria and Wim Wigt (who were patrons and friends of Chet till his sudden passing in 1988), Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the first official reissue (and the first ever UK vinyl release) of Chet Baker’s classic Cool Cat album. This unique album comes as a deluxe 180g vinyl edition (strictly limited to 500 copies) with obi strip. The jacket also features exclusive pics shot in Amsterdam in 1986 by legendary Dutch photographer Joost Leijen (known for his work with artists such as Art Blakey and Pharoah Sanders). Released exclusively for Record Store Day 2021 (UK & Europe) and available in participating stores on June 12th, 2021.

Drop 1Circle SkyDream ColourBMGLP. Heavyweight 180g VinylCircle Sky are Richard Norris and Martin Dubka. 

Circle Sky. An electronic band. Bright with light, sparking with positives. They’re mutable, fluctuating, flickering, pulsating, vibrating. Born in London, playing six nights a week, experimenting in an abandoned space in the city’s docklands. Constructing music live and improvised for endless hours, embracing sonic hypnosis. Each loop a twist on the last, new forms arising in real time. 

Circle Sky are operatives of their own station, building emotional, human music with tomorrow’s electronic equipment. The analogue warmth of the past meets the most advanced digital technologies. This is music to get lost in, melodies to sing, music to dance to. 

Circle Sky live is a swirl of pulsing lights, racks of LEDs, wires, synched vortexes exploding in technicolour, fronted by an entity of unknown origin. 

They strive unapologetically for something beautiful. There’s something holistic about their manipulation of voice, tone, reverb and space. A new journey into melodic synthesised music.

Circle Sky. Embrace the future. Make it colourful.
Drop 2Clash, The If Music Could TalkCMGx2 LP Vinyl“If Music Could Talk” was a promo album released by The Clash in 1981, featuring interviews with all four members (Paul, Mick, Joe & Topper), conducted by long time band associate, Kosmo Vinyl, interspersed with music from the (as then) recently released Sandinista triple album. Until now, the album has never had a full release. Available across x 2 LP’s and pressed on 180g vinyl, the 2021 Record Store limited edition reproduces the original interview audio, as well as the full length tracks from the album (using the 2012 audio). The front cover features a photo of Augusto Cesar Sandino – the Nicaraguan anti-imperialist leader and forebearer to the country’s Sandinista movement who in turn provided the inspiration for the album – and a Pennie Smith photo on the reverse. Brand new artwork and liner notes come from Kosmo Vinyl. £1 from the retail price of each copy will be donated to War Child.PunkRock2500

Drop 1ComplexComplexVINYL REVIVAL1LP, orange vinylComplex were formed in Blackpool in 1968 and after a couple of line-up changes the band recorded this debut LP in a pub in Blackpool in 1970 as a 4 piece consisting of Tony Shakespeare (drums), Lance Fogg (bass), Steve Coe (organ), Brian Le (guitar, vocals). 

The idea was to release the recordings as a demonstration LP rather than a tape or waiting on one of the southern routed A&R man to show up at a live performance.

Only 99 copies were printed and sent out to major British labels with the hope of maybe securing a record deal, the remaining copies were sold at the bands shows in 1971 for a £1.

The original release has now become legendary amongst collectors of British Psychedelia with copies selling for in excess of £10,000.00

This 50th anniversary edition is limited to 500 (orange vinyl) copies.

Drop 1 Coterie, TheA Swing To FolkMunsterLPSplatter colour vinyl. The Coterie was an ephemeral folk group from Dimnagh, a southern suburb of Dublin, with hippy and psych touches from the late 60s.
They were signed by Emerald at around the age of 18. This label, which released folk music among other genres, had a distribution relationship with Decca until shortly before the latter was taken over by Polygram. Emerald released a single and the group’s debut and only LP, “A Swing to Folk”, a captivating record with simple instrumentation, beautiful vocals and harmonies that transport us to pastoral surroundings full of calm, peace and love.
The record has 11 tracks, most of them cover versions (including songs by the Beatles, Phil Ochs and Judy Collins/Leonard Cohen) and a couple of traditional folk arrangements. All the songs are performed in a simple, candid style that makes listening to them an almost mystical experience, supported by gentle guitars and keyboards in the background. Lack of promotion and slow sales of the record meant that The Coterie did not accomplish everything they deserved, and the group disbanded and fell into oblivion…until now!
“A Swing to Folk” returns to life, to envelop us with the warmth, gentle simplicity and beguiling melodies of its tracks.
Reissued now for the first time, over 52 years after its original release.

Drop 2 CrassChrist Alive! – The RehearsalOne Little IndependentLPOriginally recorded in 1982 in Crass’ rehearsal studio at Dial House, ‘Christ Alive’ documents the ofttimes gruelling process behind the making of a song. Given the exacting nature of Crass’ finished works, it’s illuminating to hear them battling out results that eventually gave them the structure to ‘Christ the Album’. After many hours spent in the studio, it was decided that Beethoven would be expertly weaved into the recordings. Call it Crasshoven if you like. This black vinyl pressing, limited to 450 units, will also see all profits donated to the Refuge, a UK charity working against domestic violence.IndiePunk500900

Drop 2 Dave DaviesBugGreen Amp Records / Red River Entertainment12″ vinyl, 180g Pink and Yellow 2LP If Dave Davies did nothing more than create the slash-and-burn power chords of the Kinks’ “You Really Got Me” he’d earn a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As it is, the younger Davies brother has accomplished much more. His first studio album in over 20 years finds Ray’s frequently overshadowed sibling reviving that rather charming ’70s device, the concept album–the plot here revolving around extraterrestrial visitation and brain implantation. Davies brings the idea of benign aliens a little closer in a collection that recalls some of the best trends of the ’60s and ’70s. He uses a rock template that harkens back to post-Tommy Who (“The Lie”), Mott the Hoople (“Whose Fooling Who”), and Deep Purple (“It Ain’t over ‘Till It’s Done”), sounding rather anachronistic as a result. The songs are engaging and show Davies to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, but they’re somewhat stuck in the way-back machine.RockRock500 UK / 400 EU1900-2000
Drop 1Dave Davies & John CarpenterVillage Of The Damned (Deluxe Edition – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)Concord / Craft1LP ColouredThe Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation then the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film. The set does however include the track, “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film. Interest in John Carpenter’s original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one of a kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes an all new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.SoundtrackSoundtrack5002,000

Drop 1Dirty ThreeOcean Songs:Deluxe BoxsetBella UnionBOXSET | 4LPIn March 1998 Australian trio The Dirty Three released their now iconic album ‘Ocean Songs’. In 2005 the band would be joined onstage by Nick Cave to play the album in its entirety at ATP festival in New York, a show that since has developed into near mythic status. In 2021, both of these recordings will be made available in a deluxe boxset as part of Record Store Day. 

Remastered for an enhanced listening experience, the boxset will feature 4LPs pressed on coloured vinyl – the original album on lovely ocean blue and the live album on violet. In addition the band’s guitarist Mick Turner has created new artwork including a giant 8 panel pull out poster with words from the band on the recording and the ATP performance and a secondary poster that includes lots of great photos from the show. All housed in a beautiful slipcase! 

Ocean Songs marked the bands first release with Bella Union and was the second-ever album released on the label, as detailed by boss Simon Raymonde, “An extraordinary record. Visceral, uncategorisable and runs on pure adrenalin and feel. Our first time working with the band, in fact our first time working with ANY band, and was only the second-ever album released on Bella Union back in 1998, a few months after we formed the label. 22 years later and listening to the album afresh, I am filled with emotion hearing these sounds again, as if it were for the first time. It is both vibrant and untamed as any record I’ve ever heard. Imperative listening.”

Dirty Three violinist and bassist Warren Ellis also recalls the albums somewhat rocky beginnings as the band were dropped by their previous label, “when we handed Ocean Songs in to Big Cat we were dropped. Luckily a deal was inked with Bella Union in an AA meeting between our manager and Robin Guthrie. Possibly the boldest album of our career. Symphonic in its conceit and 100% Dirty Three. Playing it live in its entirety only reconfirmed its audacity. I think this live recording might be my favourite Dirty Three album ever. That’s what I hear when I’m playing in the band. With Nick on piano it was the most beautiful blend of my musical adventures.” 
eve artwork from the guitarist Mick Turner, a pull-out poster and new band photos.

Ocean Songs is the fourth major album by Dirty Three, released originally in March 1998 by Touch and Go Records and Bella Union. Produced by Steve Albini and the band themselves, the album was recorded at Electrical Audio, Chicago, United States, during August and September 1997. The album also features David Grubbs on piano and harmonium on a number of tracks, while the cover art was designed by guitarist Mick Turner.

Only this time, the ‘Ecstasy’ EP was in fact, a precursor to their third album ‘ENERGY’ – released in August on Island Records. ENERGY secured the bands third Top 5 album and third album grammy nomination along with a further nomination for the single ‘My High’ ft. Aminé & slowthai 

ENERGY pits a raucous rhythm from an album of Brazilian library music against a sample of Eric Thomas, the same hip hop preacher whose words memorably appeared on 2013’s When a Fire Starts to Burn. A global spectrum of talented artists grace the record – and for the first time this includes rappers. Appearances from Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres, Aminé and slowthai sit comfortably alongside the legend that is Common. Other features include the inimitable Kelis who opens the album and Fatoumata Diawara who the boys have also linked up with previously. Cameroon’s Blick Bassy brings his own flow to the table while a powerhouse team of Kehlani & Syd ease the pace with their contribution.

Drop 2 Dream Syndicate, The Out of The Grey (Deluxe Edition)Fire RecordsLP1000 Black vinyl copies pressed, includes DL card w/ bonus tracks. 35-year anniversary re-issue of the Syndicate’s post hiatus reunion from ’86. The Dream Syndicate’s 1986 album ‘Out of the Grey’ is back on vinyl for the first time in 24 years. Deliciously remastered with new liner notes that feature interviews with Steve Wynn, Mark Walton, Paul Cutler and Dennis Duck along with rare photos and eight rarities from the era. Hidden inside of ‘Out of the Grey’ are some of Wynn’s strongest songs – “Slide Away” is delightful pop, “Now I Ride Alone” is moody and intense “like the hardboiled typewriting of novelists Jim Thompson, Ross MacDonald, and James Cain” that Steve dug back in July ‘85. The epic “Boston” imagines the era in which Van Morrison was holed-up in that city circa 1967-68 writing the songs that comprised Astral Weeks while “50 in a 25 Zone” is a vehicle for a band-driven, slow burn groove. Properly remastered for the first time since its initial release by engineer Jim Hill who had recorded the original ‘Out of the Grey’ but hadn’t overseen the mastering. “The Dream Syndicate has proven to be a massively influential force in the world of alternative rock” NPR.

The band are huge supporters of RSD having already released the first album “Elastica” and a BBC sessions album on the same day in previous years. It feels fitting that the Box set should also follow in their footsteps. The original singles were initially released in small limited numbers, because of this they sold out immediately making it difficult to purchase a copy. The singles all reached indie number 1’s and top 40 chart positions. The numbering on the original sleeves we’re individually printed by ourselves one evening after rehearsals.

Drop 1Elton JohnRegimental Sgt.ZippoUMC1LPAfter the rapturous reception for Jewel Box, Rocket/UMC/EMI are honoured to announce a strictly limited one-off bringing together of Elton John’s fabled Regimental Sgt Zippo album that was slated for release in 1968, but ultimately shelved.

For one day only, we enter a parallel universe where this, not Empty Sky, would have been Elton John’s debut album.

Recorded at Dick James Studios in Central London between late 1967 and Spring 1968, six of the 12 songs were released on Jewel Box, but five are here in their finished versions for the first time and a debut release for You’ll Be Sorry To See Me Go.

Overseen with customary forensic attention to details by Elton’s archive team, RSZ is an absolute feast for fans of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. Side 1

Drop 2 FfranconGwalaxia:Belleville 1315 / Machynlleth 1404AnkstmusikLPThis is a re-mastered, re-imagined and re-purposed physical album version of Welsh electronic artist FFRANCON’s ground breaking fusion of Detroit techno and rebel Welsh politics.
These tracks originally appeared online in 2020 as part of Geraint Francon’s ‘Machynlleth Sound Machine’ concept which grew out of the chance discovery that Belleville, the birthplace of Detroit techno, is twinned with the rural Welsh market town of Machynlleth, home to Owain Glyndwr’s rebel Welsh Parliament of 1404.
GWALAXIA.,as an album channels the rebelious spirit of these two places through the medium of electronic music, the result is techno music soaked in the collective haze of hundreds of years of Welsh history and southwesterly storms – a Cambrofuturistic take on a staple of Afrofuturism.
As the spirit of independence and support for the break up of the union grows in Wales and beyond GWALAXIA is a timely and important record release and is a timely and essential artistic statement of resistance and hope in the face of increasing political corruption and the growing danger to artistic freedom and creativity in the new post Brexit Britain.

Drop 1Finn AskewPeachPolydor7″Red coloured vinyl of Finn Askew’s highly anticipated debut ‘Peach’ EP exclusive for RSD. ‘Egotism’ has already been supported as Jack Saunder’s Next Wave on Radio 1 and had a huge start internationally across streaming partners. For proof that remarkable talent can flourish in the most unexpected places, look no further than Finn Askew. Hailing from a sleepy market town in Somerset, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter could scarcely be further removed from any sort of music scene, and yet he’s raising the bar for the rest of the industry with his soulful yet streetwise sound. Following his successful 2020 string of singles including ‘Old Love, ‘Peach’ and the undeniable ‘Roses’ – his debut single which shot him out of the gate and now sits on an incredible 9.2 million views – Finn has not only been growing in the UK, but after Taeyong from notorious KPOP group NCT shared Roses, saw him trend in Korea and pick up a dedicated following there that has propelled him globally and seen him establish himself on several Korean digital music charts. Tipped as a One To Watch for 2021 by The Line of Best Fit, the young Somerset artists, eclectic and varied range juxtaposes even the most melancholy lyrics with upbeat, heartwarming synths, guitar melodies and a enthusiasm, stretching way beyond Finn’s 19 years.Hip-hopAlternative1,000

Drop 1Flirtations, The Nothing But A Heartache’ b/w ‘Need Your Loving’Decca7″The Flirtations were South Carolina trio Lestine Johnson with sisters Ernestine and Shirley Pearce. They originally recorded for the Old Town label as The Gypsies but despite a change of name and several changes of label success eluded them. After winning a local talent contest in 1968 they packed their bags and headed for England, where they supported Tom Jones and signed to Deram. ‘Nothing But A Heartache’ was their second release for the label and while it failed to chart in the UK it reached No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1969. The wonderful ‘Need Your Loving’ would have remained an album track but requests from Northern Soul clubs saw it finally released as a single in 1972. Until now original UK copies of that original single have been extremely hard to come by and have been in very high demand. Both sides were written by the Deram ‘in house’ team of Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington, who would have considerable chart success in the mid ‘70s with The Rubettes, for whom they wrote the No. 1 hit ‘Sugar Baby Love’.SoulSoul6001000
Drop 1 FocusSingles, Deep Cuts & Bbc Live (Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL2LP, coloured vinyl, numberedDutch rock group Focus – founded in late 1969 – was the first continental European rock group to reach a worldwide audience and to tour extensively in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and Japan. The band scored two worldwide hit singles, sold several million albums and was the first Dutch rock group claiming Melody Maker’s Brightest Hope award for 1972. One year later, Focus hit the US Billboard charts with two singles and two albums simultaneously. During their prime years, Focus featured some of the most talented musicians coming out of The Netherlands during the 70s: guitarist Jan Akkerman, keyboard player Thijs van Leer, bass player Bert Ruiter and drummer Pierre van der Linden.
This double album combines original single versions, some deep cuts from their albums and recordings from their 1973 BBC In Concert performance at the London Paris Theatre.
SINGLES, DEEP CUTS & BBC LIVE is available as a limited edition of (TBA) individually numbered copies on coloured vinyl (colours to be announced).
Drop 1 Fontaines D.C.Live at Kilmainham GaolPartisan RecordsLP On 14th July 2020, Fontaines D.C. played a selection of songs from their ‘Dogrel’ and ‘A Hero’s Death’ albums live at Kilmainham Jail as part of the Other Voices Courage Series.

It is an old cliche for historians to ask ‘if these walls could speak, what would they tell us?’ Fortunately, the walls of Kilmainham Gaol tell us exactly how they feel. Faded with time, but still stubbornly there, are the messages of Ireland’s revolutionary generations. Over one door are the quoted words of Patrick H. Pearse, poet and leader of the Easter Rising, thundering ‘Beware of the Risen People.’ Perhaps the most evocative piece of graffiti in the prison reads simply ‘A Few Men Faithful and a Deathless Dream.’

The album arrives on 180g heavyweight black LP in a gatefold jacket. Dublin historian Donal Fallon has written an essay on Kilmainham Gaol which is featured on the back cover. Includes an exclusive poster.

Hubbard’s quintet pays special tribute to Miles Davis that evening with a powerful rendition of “All Blues”. A well-recorded showcase of bop and blues played with harmonic intelligence and soul.

Drop 1GeorgiaSeeking Thrills (After Hours)Domino RecordsLPGeorgia is very happy to announce Seeking Thrills: After Hours, a limited 12” to be released on Record Store Day 2021. 

Where Seeking Thrills was Georgia’s exploration of the dancefloor in pop form over 12 tracks, After Hours sees Georgia going deeper into the club setting, with four remixes of her own songs designed specifically for club use. After Hours gave Georgia the opportunity to go deeper into those influential club sounds that were at the core of Seeking Thrills. Condensed into 4 tracks, this 12” is not only collection of tracks rooted in house and techno, it’s Georgia’s homage to the dance culture that was so instrumental in the creation of Seeking Thrills.

Drop 1 Girls In SynthesisShift In StateHarbinger SoundLPWith the release of their debut album at the end of 2020, Girls In Synthesis proved that the hype was very much justified when it came to the bands tag as one of the most exciting in the UK. A concise and rabid blast of harsh post-punk, and released during the COVID crisis, the album eerily managed to capture the mood of the moment, despite being written and recorded in 2019. Rightly so, it was released to stunned reviews and featured in many ‘Best of 2020’ end-of-year lists. Always a band with a militant work ethic, the first fruits of their fevered writing and recording period throughout 2020 are borne here with ‘Shift In State’. Featuring 5 brand new tracks, the mini-album sees the trio return to the experimental edge of their early, and highly sought after, EP releases. The lead track ‘Containment’, an abstract, bleak and circular slice of obtuse-punk gives way to an explosive and skewed dub remix featuring languorous horns and industrial sounding percussion. Following on, ‘… But Still you Wanted More’ retains the dub minimalism and adds trudging, nihilistic lyrical content alongside churning, saw-sharp organ. ‘Calm Waters’, the groups’ first foray into a harsher, electronic landscape, brings to the forefront a crushing, relentless drum machine backbeat and woozy, warped bass hooks. Finishing on ‘Don’t Try’, this song sees the band return to their more familiar white-heat blast of post-punk. Shards of harsh, splintered guitar and pounding drums help push the theme of gross governmental incompetence well and truly into the listener’s brain. Their incendiary live shows being hugely missed by fans, UK and EU dates are currently being signed off for late 2021 with further key releases also being lined up for release later in the year. Never a band to sit still, ‘Shift In State’ sees GIS, once again, surmount all obstacles and proves them to be one of the most forward-thinking and tireless acts in the UK.

This is an era that is often less considered by music lovers and horror movies fans, but this LP is here also to remind the listener that there’s a lot to be rediscovered. This second volume is in fact even more diverse and eclectic than its predecessor, as it goes from classic-era Goblin sounds (Yell) to funk-rock (Funky Top), from romantic atmospheres (St. Helens) to the 80’s electronic vibrations (Sleepwalking, Tenebre, La Chiesa). To make this release even more special, the last two tracks on side B are presented for the first time as a new edit (La Chiesa) and a new suite (Nonhosonno – Killer On The Train – Arpeggio-End Title, from the comeback reunion of “Nonhosonno”, the film directed by Dario Argento in 2001)!

Of the twenty-two performances on the famed Europe ’72 tour, the first night in Paris on 5/3/72 has always been considered one of the best. This is proven by the fact that four songs from this concert were included on the seventeen-track, seminal platinum-selling Europe ’72 album.
Featuring an “Other One” that comes out of Truckin’ and weaves in and out of other thematic and deep-space jams, as well as a side trip to Me And Bobby McGee, this is some of the Grateful Dead’s best, most inspired improvisation. The performance also includes five songs sung by Pigpen on what would be his final tour, including a massive Good Lovin’ which allows Pigpen to do what he does best: hold the audience in the palm of his hand while they hang on his every word. Mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman and mastered for vinyl by GRAMMY ® Award-winning engineer David Glasser. Produced for release by David Lemieux.

Drop 2HeartbreakersL.A.M.F. – the found ’77 mastersJungleLPOn release in 1977, Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers’ ‘L.A.M.F.’ had a mastering fault, widely condemned as a ‘muddy mix’. Track Records went bust and the master was lost – so subsequent releases were compiled from outtake or re-mixes. Forty-four years later, the master has been found in an attic, and the classic punk album ‘L.A.M.F.’ can at last be heard as the band and producers intended! FOUND IN AN ATTIC – a punk rock archaeological discovery – a copy master of the original 1977 Track Records tape, without ‘mud’!
This classic punk album, recorded in London by the New York band featuring two New York Dolls, was always controversial – and not just for the acronym. Upon release on Track Records in 1977, it was widely condemned for having a ‘muddy mix’ – later found to be a mastering fault. When Track went bust the following year, manager Leee Black Childers burgled the office and liberated the tapes – he found everything except the master-tape.
Subsequent releases were remixed from the multi-tracks or compiled from outtake mixes – the ‘lost ’77 mixes’ in 1994 being well-received and the version most known ever since. A lift from the vinyl didn’t achieve much clarity. Meanwhile, fans found the ’77 cassette version didn’t have the infamous ‘mud’, nor did certain European vinyl matrixes. 
In 2020 a chance meeting led to Daniel Secunda’s archives. He was an old-school music biz pioneer who became a Track Records director – and the Heartbreakers ‘L.A.M.F.’ co-producer. In amongst his many tape boxes were two with no artist name, marked ‘Copy Master 12.7.77’. They turned out to be a crystal-clear ‘L.A.M.F.’, just as the band and producers intended it.
Sadly, in August 2020 the Heartbreakers co-lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Walter passed away. He was the last of the Heartbreakers ‘L.A.M.F.’ line-up – Johnny Thunders died in 1991, Jerry Nolan in 1992, and Billy Rath in 2014. Walter’s punk memoir autobiography is to be published in paperback in May 2021.

Drop 1 HooverphonicA New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular Remixes Ep (12″ Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL12″, purple vinyl, numberedThis year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Hooverphonics debut album “A New Stereophonc Sound”. Music On Vinyl in cooperation with Sony Music and Alex Callier are releasing 4 Hooverphonic remix Eps. Each EP represents a Hooverphonic album; A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular, Blue Wonder Power Milk, The Magnificent Tree and Presents Jackie Cane.
Alex Callier selected the best remixes of their songs for each remix EP. All 4 remix EP’s are scheduled for release in 2021 and are cut on 45 RPM and pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
Hooverphonic are a Belgian band that formed in October 1995. Though originally categorized as a trip hop group, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be described as a lone genre, but rather encompass alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and a mixture of others. The band originally called themselves Hoover, but later changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name and to avoid any legal issues with the vacuum cleaner company.

Since their formation, Hooverphonic’s lineup consisted of bassist Alex Callier, guitarist Raymond Geerts, and various lead singers. Geike Arnaert (1997–2008, 2020-present) has recently re-joined the band.

Hooverphonic were supposed to represent Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. However, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will instead represent Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
The band achieved international recognition through the inclusion of the Stereophonic track “2Wicky” on the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1996 film Stealing Beauty. “2Wicky” also appeared on the soundtracks of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Heights. The track’s main riff is sampled from Isaac Hayes’ recording of the 1960s hit “Walk On By”.
“Inhaler” is, not least thanks to those wonderfully fanning out guitars, still a missed world hit.
Remix duties are fulfilled by drum ‘n bass producer Dj Pulse, owner of the Creative Wax label, and the late Hector Zazou. Both gave some LTJ Bukem-esque vibes to “Inhaler” and “2 Wicky”.
Furthermore, Alex Callier and the band re-recorded both songs and added some extra strings to “Inhaler”.

“A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular remixes” is available on Record Store Day.Only 2000 individually numbered copies on solid purple are pressed.

Drop 1Jacques RenaultSky IslandsLet’s Play House12″ LP, Blue Coloured VinylFor his third full-length album, Jacques Renault explores his craft through the
format of the classic late-night radio megamix. It’s a tour de force that finds him
blending his quick-cutting DJ sensibilities with his crate-digging, drum-chopping
disco-chemist bonafides into one wham-bam party of pastiche.

This is Renault as we know him—but at hyperspeed, tearing through twenty-
three tracks in under half an hour. And while it’s a head rush of his trademark

funky drums, sassy horns, playful synths, it’s arranged as an album, with
songwriting and structure at the fore.
Imagine it as a flip on the script for Renault’s most loved club 12-inches of the
past, which luxuriate in long-form, stretched-out grooves that burn for hours, fills
that ride for days. Instead of on pulling a thread for six, seven minutes, he
romps around in a bouncy ball pit, plucking out whatever captures his
imagination for a moment, then diving back in to discover another buried

Drop 1 Jah WobbleOld Jewish East End of London Dub/ Lovers Rock DubJah Wobble Records12″ Single – Double A-sideI grew up in Stepney , along with its neighboring ‘village’ Whitchapel, it was still, at that time, a quite a Jewish (mainly Ashkenazim ), area. Most of the Orthodox Jews had gone to Stamford Hill and Golders Green by then. You could still clearly feel, the echo of the Shtetl, especially around the many street markets. The influx of Jewish immigrants largely began in the late 1800’s You can easily imagine in the late 1800 early 1900 what the East End of London was like, in particular a big mix of Jews and Irish, (from Cork in particular). Both had fled to London through urgent necessity , the Jews because of pogroms in the East of Europe, the Irish, first due to the Famine, in the mid 1800’s, and from then onwards in the search for labour. One lot came from the East and the other lot from the West. Both parties arrived via The Thames, into the port of London. That mix of Jews , Irish and others made for a ‘heady brew’. A very heady brew indeed. I make this tune with huge affection in memory of those huddled masses. 2 Tracks in total – a double A-side 12″ single. On royal blue vinyl.Reggae500500
Drop 1Jah Wobble & FamilyGuanyinJah Wobble RecordsLPI thought it was time that I worked with the family again….my wife Zi-Lan , and sons John and Charlie, ( Tianqi and GZ Tian, respectively ). The last time we recoded together was on ‘Chinese Dub’, back in 2008 which sold very well and this could be seen as a sequel to Chinese Dub. On this album Zi-Lan plays Chinese Harp, flute and sings, John (Tianqi) my eldest boy plays drums and percussion, keys and Chinese dulcimer and Charlie (GZ TIan) , my younger son plays Chinese Violin and sings. Guanyin is the Great Female bodhisattva. ‘The Goddess of Mercy’. This album has a unique mix of Chinese and Western styles. I am back playing a Fender Precision , which is the type of bass that I first played , when I started playing in the 70’s. It’s a real ‘Hi-Fi’ record . I wanted this record to have high production standards. Red Vinyl LP.World500500

Drop 1James RayJames RayVINYL REVIVAL1LP, Turquoise vinylNever released in the UK. 
Original was only released in the US IN 1962.

Born in Washington DC in 1941, the 18 year old James Ray arrived in New York, and made an immediate impact by recording “Make her Mine” on the Galliant label, under the stage name Little Jimmy Ray. Despite this promising start, a difficult two years followed which saw him destitute, pounding the city pavements, occasionally singing in clubs and sometimes on street corners. On one such club night, Rudy Clark befriended him and was instrumental in making introductions to Gerry Granahan of Caprice Records who then signed him as James Ray.

His first recording was one of Clark’s songs, “If you gotta’ make a fool of somebody,” which was a huge success in the U.S. on both the pop and R&B charts. It reached the attention of Paul McCartney, who, having heard the song in Brian Epstein’s record shop, included it in the Beatles’ Hamburg set and claimed that the R&B meets waltz sound arranged by Hutch Davie influenced the song “Love me do.” Freddie and the Dreamers would also cover this track after hearing a stirring performance by The Beatles at The Cavern Club , taking it into the top 5 in the UK singles chart.

The Beatles connection intensified as George Harrison, who had purchased the album in 1963, would go onto revive “I’ve got my mind set on you” almost 25 years later taking the single to number 1.

Ray recorded this eponymous album in 1962 and passed away soon afterwards leaving behind this soulful collection of R&B classics.

Drop 1Japanese Television3 (Remixed)Tip Top Recordings12″Record Store Day exclusive limited edition 500 press on neon green heavyweight vinyl featuring big hitting remixes from James Lavelle’s UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor), James Welsh (Phantasy Sound), Space Age Freak Out (John Paynter), and International Teachers of Pop (ERC / Moonlandingz) who add a whole new dimension to JTV’s critically accalimedthird EP and a further RSD physical exclusive with JTV’s remix of Internatianal Teachers Pop’s Flood The Club (Themes Water Remix). 3 (Remixed) is on vinyl for the first time especially for RSD and JTV say: “During lockdown we thought it would be cool to create a remix project with artists we admire. We love collaborating. It’s exciting to have them reimagine our tracks” say Japanese Television – who formed with a shared vision of creating a modern psych space-surf soundscape. 

Gabe Gurnsey add his trademark hard-hitting beats and minimalist synths to otherworldly psych single ‘Bee Cage’ and has already had three plays from Lauren Laverne and two from Gideon Coe on 6 Music and the mix was made John Kennedy’s ‘X-Posture Hot One. A groove-laden treat, Gabe adds layers of astral beats to create something wholly other. “We heard Gabe’s remix for Working Men’s Club and loved it, we’re stoked he’s on board.” This is followed by James Lavelle’s masterful UNKLE Reconstruction of ‘Falling Spikes’ (the original was named as one Amy Lame’s BBC 6 Music Favourite Tracks of 2020), which delivers the trademark eclectic UNKLE sound and twist. “James is a living legend and as big fans it’s an honour to have him remix”, say JTV. With additional mixes from Space Age Freakout (“we love the dirty Manchester electronic vibe”), International Teachers of Pop (“We’re big fans of ITOP. Sheffield’s finest”); and James Welsh (“Like Gabe we found James through Erol Elkan’s Phantasy Sound label. He’s delivered absolute dynamite”), say JTV.Japanese Television surf on a swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-rock guitars, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, ritualistic drums. In 2020 the band released their five track EP III slice of motorik space twang. Preferring to work in a village hall deep in the wilds of the east British countryside, JTV again recorded live to an old 8 track machine with The Wytches’ Kristian Bell following the success of EPs I & II. The band has been played over 70 times on BBC 6 Music including a session with Marc Riley and have seen acclaim from the likes of NME, So Young, Clash, Arts Desk, WFUV in New York, and The Wire. Only Japanese Television are 100% space surf. Their cosmic glow remains extraordinary.

At that time, he entered a recording studio in an attempt to secure a record deal as a solo artist. The recordings have been long forgotten and unheard until now. The Adams Brothers, who gained notoriety in Mike Judge’s Tales From The Tour Bus episode on Paycheck, produced the songs and worked as Paycheck’s band. These recordings showcase Paycheck’s considerable talent long before the music world took notice.

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the Record Store Day 2021 release of a strictly limited edition newly re-mastered 180 gram vinyl LP edition of the classic debut solo album by YES vocalist JON ANDERSON, Olias of Sunhillow. Released in July 1976, the album was a conceptual work recounting the story of an alien race on a journey to find a new world following volcanic destruction on their home planet. All music on the album was written and performed by Jon Anderson and the recording took place at Anderson’s Buckinghamshire home studio whilst Yes were on hiatus following the tour to promote the album Relayer. 

Initially recorded on an 8-track tape machine, the arrangements were then re-recorded on to a 24-track tape machine. The album saw Jon perform the music entirely alone, teaching himself to play keyboards and acknowledging the influence of suche legendary musicians as Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz and Vangelis on his work. Indeed, it was even rumoured Vangelis performed on the album, something the maestro would deny in interviews.

Olias of Sunhillow was released by Atlantic Records in the summer of 1976 in an elaborate gatefold sleeve designed by David Fairbrother-Roe and was a top ten album in the UK. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original album master tapes and was cut at Abbey Road studios. The limited edition LP release fully restores the stunning original gatefold sleeve and inner bag artwork.

Released for the first time on vinyl, ‘Wyatt At The Coyote Palace’ is pressed on double gold vinyl. An essential vinyl release of the Throwing Muses’ mainstay’s 2016’s CD and essay book that featured stories from “her life’s most perception-altering junctures” (NPR). “As memoirs, her albums are so intensely personal… as art, they’re arguments for the value of unapologetic individuality” Pitchfork. “This music reminds you how alone you are; it consoles you through its insolubility, comforts you by jabbing you in the chest and letting you know how complex the struggle is, how inaccessible we are to each other but just how universal our pain can be.” The Wire. This sonically rich and fragmented record references to Hersh’s past material and sees her perform on guitar, bass, drums, piano, horns and cello. There’s a mysticism and sense of life wonderment throughout ‘Wyatt At The Coyote Palace’ that also has death as a central theme rather than the contemplation of death itself it’s reaching the end of something and beginning a new life.

Drop 1Lathums, The Live at Blackpool TowerIsland12″“The audio for this release has been taken from The Lathums’ one off livestreamed gig at Blackpool Tower’s Circus Room, which amassed 4,000 unique viewers back in October 2020. With the UK lockdown hitting right at the start of the band’s rise last year, for many this exclusive white vinyl RSD release will be the first glimpse of their electric live performance.
Passage from Blackpool Tower PR:
The Lathums return to live performance for the first time since their sold-out February tour to play the historic Blackpool Tower, with the show streaming in FREE HD audio and video on Wed 28 October at 8pm. The four-piece’s life-affirming, beg-for-a-ticket pre-Covid live shows recruited a fervent and growing, all-ages, UK-wide fanbase, supporters who helped the band swerve the wreckage of 2020 to stay firmly on the rise. The special, one-off show by the sea goes out as a ‘thank you’ from The Lathums to those stood by their side. Glancing back over a year that saw the band use time locked out of live venues to lock-in to intense writing and recording sessions, Live From Blackpool Tower, will see the band freed to play longstanding favourites alongside recent releases, including punchy single, I See Your Ghost, and other tracks from the forthcoming Ghosts EP (released Fri 30 October, Island Records). Filmed in the Tower’s ornate Circus Room under Covid-Safe conditions prior to Lancashire’s Tier 3 status being confirmed, The Lathums took the rare opportunity to let loose and get loud.”

Drop 2 LoveEverybody’s Gotta LiveHigh Moon RecordingsLPLove, led by the brilliant and complicated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Arthur Lee, are widely regarded as one of the most unique and influential American rock bands of all time. Their 1974 studio album ‘Reel to Real’ featured the band at the height of their rock/funk/soul incarnation, and the 2015 reissue – on High Moon Records – featured 12 previously-unreleased outtakes, alternate versions and alternate mixes from the original album sessions. This special RSD release features five of the ‘Reel to Real’ bonus tracks on vinyl for the first time, including three original Lee compositions that were basically unknown before the 2015 reissue, even to Love fanatics: the sweet and soulful “You Gotta Feel It”, a catchy rock-pop tune called “I Gotta Remember’, and “Do It Yourself”, a blast of high-energy funk driven by Lee’s strutting vocals and tight horns. The ‘Everybody’s Gotta Live’ EP opens with the powerful, unadorned version of “Everybody’s Gotta Live” that closes the original album. In a testament to the musical genius of Arthur Lee, “Everybody’s Gotta Live” has had a life of its own: including a pivotal scene in the award-winning film ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and a heartbreaking interpretation on Mac Miller’s posthumous album ‘Circles’. Also featured here is an alternate take of “Singing Cowboy”, a great track from Love’s catalog updated here as an urgent rocker, and an alternate version of “Everybody’s Gotta Live” in a rousing full-band performance.RockPsych4002500

Indeed, there’s a real down-home, unpolished luster to End of Amnesia, both in execution and in songwriting, that gives it a timeless, old-fashioned pallor. And yet there’s also something just slightly off in the songs, a strange, disembodied quality that seems to come at least partly from an ulterior place, be it real or imagined.

Drop 2March Violets, The Big Soul Kiss – the BBC recordingsJungle2xLPLimited edition in violet vinyl double-LP – twenty-three tracks recorded for John Peel and other BBC programmes over six separate sessions, including nine unreleased songs. THE MARCH VIOLETS came out of Leeds in the early 80’s, initially as label-mates mates of Sisters of Mercy. Releasing six singles, they were a constant presence at the heights of the UK indie charts. They didn’t get around to recording an album – their only long-players, both in the UK and USA, were singles compilations. They eventually signed to a major and were groomed for a USA breakthrough, but found they were asked to make too many compromises. Thankfully, their career was well-documented by the BBC recording six sessions – three for John Peel, and one each with Kid Jensen, Janice Long and Richard Skinner. Chronicling their development from 1982 to 1986 with lead singers Simon, Rosie and Cleo, these sessions include nine unreleased songs and alternate versions of their indie hits. Here is the unheard history of The March Violets. Side One: 1. Radiant Boys, 2. Steam, 3. 1 2 I Love You, 4. Grooving In Green, 5. Crow Baby, 6. The Undertow. Side Two: 1. Strange Head, 2.

Drop 2 Miles DavisMiles Davis Champions From The Complete Jack Johnson SessionsCMGLP VinylMiles Davis had a deep love and respect for boxing, seeing deep parallels between “the sweet science” and his own relationship with music. One of Miles’ favorites of his own recordings was the 1971 soundtrack to the Bill Cayton documentary about Jack Johnson and he was inspired by the political and racial subtext of the legendary boxer’s saga. Culled from the celebrated expanded project The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions released in 2003, and name-checking a number of pugilistic legends (“Ali,” “Sugar Ray,” “Duran,” “Johnny Bratton”), these funk-infused recordings rock harder than anything that Miles put to tape. Featuring a sterling line-up of musicians (Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin, Dave Holland, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Cobham) and a legendary cover photo of Miles in the ring captured by Jim Marshall, the release finds this music issued on vinyl (in brilliant yellow) for general release for the first time ever.JazzJazz1250

Drop 1MintyOpen WideThe state51 ConspiracyLPIn 1992, infamous fashion designer, model, performance artist and Taboo club promoter Leigh Bowery formed the band Minty (named after the Polari word for ‘snooty’) with friend, designer Richard Torry, wife Nicola, and promotor and performer Matthew Glamorre. Bowery was a massively influential pop art icon and experimental performance artist; his very existence has left a huge legacy upon popular culture. Minty was his musical vehicle to bestow his unique brand of art performance onto the world. To mark 25 years since Leigh’s passing Minty are re-releasing their renowned 1997 album ‘Open Wide’. The single and album will be reissued in a collaboration between original label Candy Records and The state51 Conspiracy. Inheritors of the Post Punk and New Romantic club scene, Bowery and crew led a vicious and uncompromising charge into challenging not only values and morality but celebrity culture itself. At a time before the internet, it was scandalous talk and sensational press articles that brought the band to the attention of the authorities. Their famously avant-garde and shocking onstage scatological, blood and gore performances prompted The Sun newspaper to describe them as the “sickest band in the land” – a statement of which Leigh was immensely proud. The UK’s draconian, indecency and public licensing laws at the time soon led to bans, legal action and police raids at venues. Useless Man opened every show, Leigh, a huge figure in floral dress, face mask and wig heaved his way onstage and belted out the lyrics over a throbbing live rock band. He stomped and boomed across the stage never missing a beat. At the crescendo he hauled himself onto a table, laid back and ‘gave birth’ to Nicola in a shockingly graphic performance of which Boy George, who had seen it many times, said that it “never ceased to impress or revolt.” In November 1994, Minty began a two-week-long show at London’s Freedom Cafe, audience members included Bjork, fashion designer Alexander McQueen and artist Lucien Freud, but it was deemed too shocking and Westminster City Council closed down the show after only one night. This was to be Bowery’s last performance. On New Year’s Eve 1994, the nightclubs, parties and discos of London froze in shock as news of the death of Leigh Bowery swept through the city and then the world. The legendary club freak, aesthete and iconic performance artist had gone. However, Bowery and his conceptual art and creativity live on as the remaining band members continued his legacy under the leadership of Nicola Bowery and Matthew Glamorre: playing live shows and even supporting Pulp, at their request, on their ‘Common People’ tour of 1995. Their album Open Wide was released in 1997 with the same aesthetic fierceness and artistry of which Bowery would be proud. The album was started in a period of great excitement when the bands notoriety was climbing – but the actual writing and production was dramatically truncated by the personal and cultural trauma of Leigh Bowery’s sudden death. Abandoned then re-discovered, further writing and recording took place throughout the grieving and reflecting process. Matthew describes the creation of the album as “Part primal scream therapy. Part death disco. Part belly laugh at the absurdity of it all.” The album was received as ground breaking and was described as “a New Wave masterpiece – the long lost conclusion of Post Punk “ by DJ and S-Express front man Mark Moore. It has also been quoted as inspirational by both Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson. The album will be reissued for Record Store Day in a triple-gatefold package showing the full image of the original landscape shoot artwork across its six panels and printed on two heavyweight clear discs with labels featuring further imagery of Leigh Bowery from the original Fergus Greer photoshoot. Additional material designed and made in The state51 Atelier workshop will accompany the reissue.Left-Field/ ExperimentalPop300200

Recorded before and between lockdowns – like all RSD releases in 2021 – this album is a taste of things to come. The Near Jazz Experience is used to working quickly, getting things out. These recordings are fresh, ready to be heard. 
FIVE YEARS was in the NJE canon for a while before being recorded. It received a ‘soft’ digital release this January in honour of Bowie’s passing five years before. It is introspective and thought provoking, as the occasion deserves, sitting well with the band’s more trademark avant-jazz sounds, a direction that Blackstar was going in. 
Dive into NOUGHT TO 60 for a journey into chilled grooves, Ethiopian-inspired jazz and Motorik beats – all Near Jazz Experience originals.
The NJE logo on the album cover was commissioned from graphic designer Dave Towers, known for his work with The Charlatans among many others.
This is a 12” mini-album on black vinyl with download code in a full-colour sleeve, strictly limited to 500 copies.

Drop 2 OST Tangerine DreamThe Keep SoundtrackUMC2LPTangerine Dream’s soundtrack to the 1983 Michal Mann film The Keep on vinyl for the first time. Finally getting its official release as part of the band’s boxset Pilots Of Purple Twilight in 2020 UMC are pleased to offer this as part Record Store Day 2021. The second movie Tangerine Dream scored for Michael Mann deserves a book on its own, given the almost mythical status that fans worldwide have attributed to the work for over 35 years. The story is as follows: after Tangerine Dream delivered the master tapes for The Keep album in November 1983, Virgin planned a world wide release for February 1984, but this was scrapped in December 1983 when it appeared that the movie was a box office flop in the United States. Up to that point, not one copy on vinyl (including test pressings) had been made, as the master tapes had not yet been prepared for a ‘EQ production copy’, which is a correctly equalised tape specifically for a vinyl and cassette release. While Virgin held copyright, the original master tapes were shelved for more than 35 years. As is the case with other released Tangerine Dream soundtracks (such as Thief, Firestarter, Heartbreaker and Shy People), The Keep represents a stand-alone album and differs from the raw musical cues delivered to Mann (that ultimately fell into the hands of bootleggers) by the band in early 1983.

Drop 2OST The Radiophonic WorkshopPossum OSTRoom 132LPOriginal soundtrack to a new British horror film by the pioneering UK electronic research lab. Astonishingly considering their 50 year career scoring for radio and television, this is the first time The Radiophonic Workshop have ever scored a feature film for theatrical release or collaborated on a major score together. They’ve risen to the challenge admirably, concocting a soundtrack that mixes pastoral flute with dread synth tones and bowed percussion that connects this to England’s hidden reverse of Coil as much as the masters of Italian Giallo soundtracks. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve designed by Julian House with sketchbook insert, the soundtrack includes all the cues from the feature film as well as 9 bonus tracks. The soundtrack features sound elements and drones from the Delia Derbyshire archives, the pioneering producer of the original Doctor Who signature tune. These sound elements, discovered in boxes of tapes in the late composer’s attic, have been restored and used in the foundations of the sound track and sound design.Left-Field/ ExperimentalSoundtrack5001500

Featuring fan favourites Country Girl and Dolls, it was the last album to include guitarist, Robert ‘Throb’ Young, who later departed the band after 22 years. Contributions to the album came from Alison Mosshart (The Kills) and Will Sergeant (Echo & The Bunnymen). To mark the occasion, frontman Bobby Gillespie has added seven tracks previously released as b-sides, including a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s To Live Is To Fly, and has re-sequenced the album to flow across 4 sides of vinyl in an expanded 2LP set – which will be released on Red coloured vinyl.

The Truth is widely regarded as one of Prince’s most underappreciated hidden gems. The x12 trk album was originally released as an accompaniment to the 1998 triple album Crystal Ball, which marked the first time that Prince released an album totally independently. The Truth was also the first Prince album to be labeled “acoustic,” though it does contain electronic instruments and elements, and it gave listeners an unprecedented chance to hear his songwriting and voice in a stripped-down presentation. This release marks the first time The Truth is available on vinyl with gorgeous, foil-embossed artwork designed by Prince’s long-time art director Steve Parke.PopBlues1500

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the Record Store Day 2021 release of a strictly limited edition newly re-mastered 180 gram white vinyl LP edition of the acclaimed Procol Harum album “Grand Hotel”. 

Released in March 1973 the album was the first to feature a line-up of Gary Brooker (piano, vocals), Alan Cartwright (bass), Chris Copping (organ), Mick Grabham (Guitars) and B.J. Wilson (drums) and was remarkable for its musical diversity and was hailed as “A masterpiece of musical perfection and lyricism” by the NME weekly music paper. 

From the sumptuously orchestrated title track, to compositions such as For Liquorice John, Fires (Which Burnt Brightly), Bringing Home the Bacon, Toujours L’Amour and Robert’s Box, “Grand Hotel” defied classification but remains one of Procol Harum’s best loved and most admired works.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original album master tapes and was cut at Abbey Road studios. The limited-edition LP release fully restores the stunning original gatefold sleeve and the deluxe lyric book which came with initial copies of the album.

Drop 1 Raybeats, TheThe Lost Philip Glass Sessions (Featuring Philip Glass & Michael Riesman)Ramp LocalLPThe Lost Raybeats. The Raybeats went in to Green St. Recording on June 4, 1982 with Philip Glass, Michael Riesman, and Kurt Munkacsi without really knowing what to expect. We wouldn’t know what we had until thirty years later. By 1982 Philip Glass was well on his way to reaching an international audience. At that time, New York City was the kind of place where anything could happen, and it did. Painting, music, dance, filmmaking, and theater were all blending in to one another in exciting and unprecedented ways. Our neighborhood, that didn’t go any further north than Houston Street, was now reaching unimaginable places. Graffiti was in the galleries, Kraftwerk was in Hip-Hop, and what was once thought of as classical art music was now being played in rock and roll clubs. It was in this wildly creative atmosphere that it made perfect sense that Philip Glass would meet up with the Raybeats and rework “Jack The Ripper” by Link Wray. “Pack Of Camels” was the Raybeats song that would get the fullest Philip Glass treatment. There’s nothing minimal about it. It was the first Raybeats song to have vocals and it’s a wild ride through downtown New York City by way of “Einstein On The Beach.” “Black Beach” was intended to have an element from the Cyclone, the legendary roller coaster ride from a long lost Coney Island. Don had the idea that we should record the sound of the Cyclone and the screams of the riders and use them as a drum break. Why not? The only problem was that our own screams were the loudest thing on the tape. We recorded “Black Beach” on June 5, the second day of recording. Gene Holder, from the dB’s, ended up playing bass. The Raybeats handle the A sections and Philip arranged the keyboards for the B sections. The ride out is a hypnotic swirl of groove and interlocking keyboard figures played by long time Philp Glass Ensemble member Michael Riesman. “A Sad Little Caper” started with a riff from Danny Amis. Pat plays the melody and Philip arranged the song with a call and response figure on the keyboard. The song would end up on the Raybeats second LP, It’s Only A Movie, in a completely different form. The name of the song came from an off handed comment that guitar great Bob Quine made about the Raybeats, “a sad little band….” Quine was a friend and lasting influence. The last song we recorded was “Jack The Ripper.” The Raybeats’ was pretty much in place by the time Philip got his hands on it. It’s one of the great guitar instrumentals, originally recorded by Link Wray of “Rumble” fame. There wasn’t much to add to this one, it was already filled up with sheets of Jody Harris guitar feedback and a driving beat, but Philip gives it a pulse that drives the song in to new territory. ClassicalLeft-Field/ Experimental4001500
Drop 1 Reggae SpecialsReggae BeatlesBurning SoundLPReleased on 180m gram vinyl. As Beatlemanina approached its peak, Jamaican music was undergoing a transition that started with ska, and then morphed into rocksteady, before assuming its ultimate form as reggae. Inevitably these cultures collided, with artists such as the Paragons and Marcia Griffiths establishing a tradition of creating dynamic reggae covers of the Beatles’ hits that continues to this day. Issued for the first time on vinyl, ‘The Reggae Specials’ extends this lineage, as some of Britain’s black belt reggae musicians set out on a series of version excursions that include some of the Fab Four’s best loved cuts.ReggaePop500

Drop 1 RepublicaRepublica (Translucent Red Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL1LP, available in Blue OR Red vinyl, sticker denotes colour, numberedRepublica is the debut studio album by English band Republica. It was released in 1996. Three singles were released from the album: “Bloke”, “Ready to Go” and “Drop Dead Gorgeous”, with the last two being huge hits.
Upon its release, Republica received generally positive reviews from music critics and was a commercial success. It peaked at number four on the UK Albums Chart. In the US, it reached number 153 on the Billboard 200 and was also successful in other countries, such as Germany, The Netherlands and New Zealand.
BuzzFeed listed “Ready To Go” at number 37 in their list of The 101 Greatest Dance Songs Of the ’90s in 2017. The song is featured in dozens of commercials, movies, and series, f.e. “Baywatch”, “Captain Marvel”, “Malcolm in the Middle”, “Queer As Folk” and many more. Fun fact; “Ready to Go” is the theme song for the Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster at Cedar Point in Ohio.
Republica turns 25 in 2021. This year on Record Store Day, Music on Vinyl in cooperation with Sony Music release the album on vinyl for the first time; A limited 25th anniversary edition on translucent blue vinyl (and a limited 25th anniversary edition on translucent red vinyl).

Following the enthusiastic critical and commercial response to their pREServed reissue series, which has produced hundreds of previously unheard recordings from the band’s master tape archive, The Residents now explore the original multitrack tapes for their seminal 1970s output. 

Produced under lockdown conditions, the group present sixteen never before heard alternate versions, unreleased curios and long-forgotten oddities.

Includes an eight minute concentrate of the legendary ‘Rusty Coathangers For The Doctor’ tape, plus a demo and alternate rendering of the classic ‘Satisfaction’ single.

Part of the ongoing pREServed reissue series, ‘Leftovers Again?!?’ is, we are told, a small taste of further album-by-album multitrack explorations the group intend to present at some as-yet undisclosed point in the future.

Drop 1shameLive in the FleshDead Oceans12″Having toured the world over following the release of their debut album ‘Songs of Praise’, shame made a name for themselves as one of the UK’s best live bands. At the beginning of 2021 the band released their James Ford-produced follow up Drunk Tank Pink, earning them a Top Ten chart position and cementing them as one of the heavy-hitters of the indie music scene.

‘shame – Live in the Flesh’ is a collection of 7 songs filmed and recorded at London’s historic Brixton Electric in October 2020. It is the only opportunity to hear Drunk Tank Pink’s explosive material live on vinyl, played with all the energy and relentlessness that shame bring to the stage. With so many cancelled or rescheduled tours in the last year, it’s a timely reminder of how important it is to capture live recordings, and who better to do that than shame?

While portraying the scene of a nightclub, he sings about hisfeelings under the pandemic.The B-side features “By Swallow Season” -a mid-tempo jazzy boogietrack, with sentimental lyrics over a floating mellow wah-wah guitar and melancholy saxophone. “How many years does it take to return to normal~”, Sakamoto sings, reflecting on the situation. The EP ends with “Don’t Tinker With History”, a boogie-funk song which opens with a James Brown-like guitar riff.An ultimate soul classic in contemporary Japan, the echoey steel guitar and the dry strumming blends in with the tight groove, along with his straightforward lyrics like “People and events that werepretended it didn’t exist”.PsychRock2501000

Currently out of print and wont be repressed in this form. 3000 pressed, 500 for the UK. This Dilla driven classic is available for RSD 2021 in a one-time only golden pearl splatter vinyl pressing. The contributions of J Dilla to the world of hip-hop can’t be overstated, and nowhere is his legacy more apparent than his work as a member of Slum Village. A founding member of the trio, (Alongside rappers T3 and Baatin) Dilla provided the group’s distinctly esoteric, free-wheeling sound. By the time Fantastic Volume II hit Dilla was well on his way to his status as a hip hop legend having produced cuts for Common, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Fantastic Volulme 2 had fans and many critics saying that Slum Village, and Dilla in particular, may “single-handedly save rap music.” Perhaps that statement is hyperbole but many consider Fantastic Volume II to be Slum Village’s finest work.

Drop 2SquidNear The WestwayWarp Records12″At 5pm on Wednesday 7th April, Squid are set to take part in an exciting and extraordinary live to vinyl recording challenge. 
The Bristol experimental band will be recording two new songs onto a two track EP, live and direct to vinyl at Metropolis Studios -and BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq show is giving fans the chance to listen in on this unique live performance. 
Recording ‘live to vinyl’ is the original process that artists used to record music for public consumption. There’s no modern technology, it’s simply playing and recording the songs in one take. In today’s digital age, the art of capturing music live to vinyl has long been forgotten, but Metropolis have recreated the experience using their unique cutting lathes. 
Part of the magic of recording music live to vinyl in this way is that Squid must get it right first time. Throw in the added pressure of an audience listening live at home via BBC 6 Music, this is a recording moment unlike any other in recent history. 
This special event is taking place as part of this year’s Record Store Day launch celebrations. 
Once recorded, these live tracks are set to be fast tracked onto the presses by Sound Performance and fans will be able to get a copy on 12” vinyl exclusively from independent record stores on Saturday 17th July. 
Arthur from Squid, said ahead of the recordings “We’ve been busying ourselves away on some scores, arranging orchestral versions of two of our favourite tracks from Bright Green Field. The process is the same as ever, starting off with no clue of what we’re doing, stumbling along together, each inputting our ideas into the music until it starts to take shape. We’re so excited and also quite terrified to release this little gem for Record Store Day 2021.” 
Not only does the live radio broadcast of this event make this an unparalleled moment in recording history, but the studio and band are also navigating extraordinary social distancing measures due to COVID-19. Gavin Newman, from Metropolis Studios said ““as you would expect, Metropolis has had to go above and beyond Covid protocols over the last 12 months in order to operate effectively and support our incredible roster of clients. Being able to provide that safe platform from which artists can create, perform and broadcast has been overwhelming. We sincerely hope that this live to vinyl experience with our friends at RSD, Warp Records, Sound Performance and BBC 6 Music will help kickstart the wider live community with a newfound confidence for the year ahead”.

Drop 1 Status QuoThe Rest Of Status Quo (Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL1LP, purple vinyl, numberedThis is good early Quo material, compiled in the late 1960s when the band was with Pye. Quo – Mania was in full effect. Band-member Alan Lancaster at the time: “I don’t think there’s a rock band quite like us in the sense that we put everything into it. Sometimes it’s obvious we’re getting off on the audience as much as they get off on us. They identify. So do we:’ That hard work and energy is there in abundance in this album. Things change fast in the pop music world but what clearly hasn’t changed over the years is the sheer energy, hard graft, application and dedication of four guys who called themselves Status Quo but in fact helped change the whole face of rock/pop with a sharp injection of heavy metal. Try the track Something’s Going On In My Head, Or Nanana. No, better still —try all of them.

Drop 1Steve ParksMovin In The Right Direction C/W Just Ask MeDYNAMITE CUTS7″ Piv sleeve, heavyweight vinylDYNAMITE CUTS and its series of amazing 45s have unleashed another Gem for RSD. This Rare groove club classic has now been shrunk down to a stunning 7”, for the first time. The LP was first released in 1981 along with a single.- which is now a mega-rare collector’s items; selling for £200 plus.
Steve Parks’ big song on this LP is the epitome of Rare groove music in the 90s. almost every club and radio would play this every night – it would be banging out of The Mud Club, Astoria, The Wag and all the other hot, sweaty, but very brilliant, clubs of the 80’s and 90’s. This is definitely on the ultimate soundtrack to that funky era.
This one-off LP and it iconic cover by Steve Parks has been reissued before but never as a 7” and never with a full colour sleeve, Dynamite Cuts’ mini version does both, delivering on-point artwork and finely tuned mastering.
Steve Parks is a very private man; this iconic cover only happened because his friend Rico, who coerce him into wearing the shirt as Steve didn’t like it at all. The only way to do it was to take him to Leon’s BBQ by the beach and buy them both a bucket of tips and corn bread.

Drop 1 Steve Reid Ensemble (featuring Kieran Hebden)Spirit WalkSoul Jazz Records2LPThis album is released as a special one-off exclusive blue double vinyl edition for Record Store Day 2021. 
Out of print for nearly 15 years, this album was recorded at the start of the long-relationship between Kieran Hebden and drummer extraordinaire Steve Reid. Soul Jazz Records had begun to release Reid’s music in 2000, reissuing much of his early catalogue of radical, deep and spiritual jazz music from the 1970s when an encounter between electronic music pioneer Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid effectively launched a new career for jazz drummer Reid – a man steeped in history having played with John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Fela Kuti, Motown and much more. Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid released a set of ground-breaking albums together in London, New York and Africa (including four on Domino Records) and continued to work together up until Steve Reid died in 2010. This album launched the start of this new connection between the two very different and yet connected artists – a mixture of electronic and jazz sensibilities like no other. The album ‘Spirit Walk’ contains an updated version of Reid’s seminal ‘Lions of Judah’ (originally released on Reid’s classic ’Nova in 1976), ‘For Coltrane’, and the stunning and epic 15-min ‘Drum Song’.
The album comes with complete original artwork, including innersleeves (featuring an interview with Steve Reid by Gilles Peterson).

Drop 1 Tales Of TerrorTales Of TerrorCall Of The VoidLP1500 copies pressed on Red vinyl, A5 Flyer & DL card. “Straight out of The Dead Boys / Stooges school of intense, f**k-it-all, snarl and self-destruct. Recommended.” Maximumrocknroll. Often cited as a major influence on the key bands of the grunge era (Nirvana, Melvins, Mudhoney etc.) Tales Of Terror’s one & only LP is an overlooked classic of 80s NorCal punk rock. Available for the first time in more than 30 years, Kurt Cobain’s 32nd-favourite-album-of-all-time is chaotic and charismatic in equal parts; the band’s story is tinged with tragedy, but the music they played was life-affirming. Wild, heads down proto thrash metal meets punk excess; think early Guns n’ Roses meets Iggy at the bar from a band whose trajectory was cut short after the death of guitarist Lyon Wong in 1986. A cobweb dispersing buried treasure that stands alongside the debut of The Damned and draws a shaky line through grunge to At The Drive In and way beyond. A super rare release, unavailable for over 30 years; remastered and ready to be cranked up to full volume. “Mid-tempo driving grunge rock that gets pretty chaotic” reported Flipside.

Of the epic new track “Sick Of Me”, frontman Shane Greenhall says: “My worst enemy, my biggest critic, the hardest, meanest person I know is sometimes me. This song is a duel, a constant battle with the person staring back at you in the mirror and not liking what you see and feel. Accepting your patterns, your learnt behaviours is EXTREMELY important as only then can you become a better version of yourself! Truth sometimes hurts as honesty ALWAYS prevails, whether you’re ready for it or not.”

Drop 1Tim McGraw, Tyler HubbardUndividedBig Machine12″ Vinyl Opaque Orange coloured vinylMusic superstars Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard of duo Florida Georgia Line have joined forces on ‘Undivided’. Described as a personal call to themselves, the track combines their distinct voices and serves as a call for self-reflection and unity during the most uncertain times of 2020/21.
Soul-searching on his bus while waiting out a positive COVID-19 quarantine, Hubbard was inspired to write ‘Undivided’, focussing on the positive with a feel-good message of hope and optimism. As he recruited McGraw for a song about coming together, that’s exactly what they did.
The pair performed the song earlier in 2021 for TV special ‘Celebrating America’, in celebration of Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.

Drop 1Timebox‘Beggin’’ b/w ‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’Decca7″Originally named The Take 5, Timebox originated from Southport, Lancashire. The quintets inclusion of organ and vibraphone hints at their Soul and Jazz leanings, as does their choice of repertoire. Prior to signing to Deram they recorded an excellent version of Dizzy Gillespie’s ‘Soul Source’ for the Piccadilly label. Their faithful cover of The Four Seasons ‘Beggin’’ gave Timebox a very brief taste of UK chart success when it peaked at No. 38 in August 1968 but it remains a firm favourite in Soul clubs. Timebox’ Soul credentials are evident from their choice of follow-up, an infectious cover of Bunny Sigler’s 1966 single ‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’, originally released on the Parkway label but not issued in the UK until 1976. It was penned by Leon Huff, who along with his song writing partner Kenny Gamble, was responsible for creating the Philly Soul sound in the 1970s.SoulPop6001000

Drop 1 Tom Petty & The HeartbreakersAngel DreamWarner Records LabelLP Cobalt Blue VinylTo celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of She’s The One, we are releasing a remixed, remastered and re-imagined version of this album. The original album included several songs that were left off the original Wildflowers album (recently included as the All The Rest disc in the Wildflowers & All The Rest re-issue), so this re-release is an appropriate ending to the campaign celebrating the Wildflowers-era. Ryan Ulyate (Tom’s long time engineer and producer) has remixed the audio, and the song selection is designed to work as a TPHB album, rather than a soundtrack album. Four unreleased tracks have been added; the rocker “105 Degrees” (written by Petty), a cover of JJ Cale’s “13 Days”, “One of Life’s Little Mysteries” (another Petty original), and an instrumental (“French Disconnection”) in the same vein as the instrumentals on the original album. An extended version of “Supernatural Radio” is also included. The new title is a reference to one of the stand out tracks on the album, for which there will be a video. The new album will have brand new artwork, and this version will replace the existing physical versions of She’s The One, although the original release will remain on the DSP’s (in addition to “Angel Dream” being available digitally).RockRock2000TBC

Drop 1ToyahFour From Toyah (40th Anniversary)Cherry RedLP• Cherry Red Records is delighted announce the newly remastered release celebrating Toyah’s 1981 chart hit EP “Four From Toyah” as a special expanded coloured vinyl mini-album exclusively for Record Store Day 2021. 

• Produced by Nick Tauber and introducing a new band line-up the EP was led by the song ‘It’s A Mystery’ which became a hit and entered the top 40 UK singles chart, rising to no.4 in February 1981 and earning a silver certification from the BPI in March 1981. ‘It’s A Mystery’ became one of Toyah’s signature songs and is still performed to this day.

• This expanded release presents all four tracks from the original 7” EP on side one of the vinyl – remastered from the original master-tapes for the first time ever. 

• Side Two includes the four original demo/incarnations of the songs which all started life in previous recording sessions, and again are remastered from the original mastertapes for the first time ever.

• It’s A Mystery began life as a song by the late 70s experimental synthesiser group Blood Donor with guest vocals by Toyah. Two other demos (Jack & Jill and The Merchant & The Nubile were recorded at Park Gates Studios in Battle, Sussex by the ‘Blue Meaning’ band line-up, the location where they also recorded The Blue Meaning album. The never before released demo of Angels & Demons was recorded in late 1980 at Eel Pie Studios, Eel Pie Island. 

• The release carries stunning new artwork including previously unseen shots from the classic photography for “Four From Toyah” which saw Toyah in four different striking and meticulous looks representing all four songs.

• Strictly limited edition ‘jungle green’ coloured vinyl echoing Toyah’s make-up from the front sleeve shot. 

• Brand new inner bag features rare and unseen imagery of Toyah.

• Official lyrics for the four songs (EP version) are also included.

Drop 1 TrapezeLive In Houston – Texas 1972PurpleDouble LP• The core of Trapeze can be traced back to Midlands band Finders Keepers in the late 1960s, featuring future Whitesnake guitarist Mel Galley, future Judas Priest drummer Dave Holland and the mercurial talents of Glenn Hughes on bass and vocals. After being discovered by The Moody Blues, they were snapped up for their own label, Threshold Records.

• Trapeze would record three classic albums for Threshold; the self-titled “Trapeze” in May 1970, “Medusa” in November 1970 and “You Are The Music • We’re Just The Band” in 1972.

• By the time of their second album, Trapeze had scaled down to the classic power trio of Galley, Holland and Hughes, finding their definitive sound with a unique blend of blues, soul and hard rock, earning them plenty of fans in America. 

• One of Trapeze’s major strongholds in the States was Texas, so we’re lucky to be able to present a complete 1972 show from Houston recorded live in concert to promote their third record. Featuring ‘Way Back To The Bone’, ‘You Are The Music’ and ‘Keepin’ Time’ from “You Are The Music • We’re Just The Band”, the remainder of the set was taken from second LP, “Medusa”. This double live LP includes truly epic renditions of ‘Jury’, ‘Seafull’, ‘Your Love Is Alright’ and the title track of “Medusa”.

• Glenn Hughes would leave Trapeze to join Deep Purple in 1973, with Mel Galley and Dave Holland carrying the Trapeze banner for the remainder of the 1970s, periodically reforming this classic three-piece line-up. Glenn would eventually form Hughes / Thrall, join Black Sabbath, enjoy a successful solo career, collaborate with artists as varied as Gary Moore, Joe Lynn Turner and the KLF, founding Black Country Communion and California Breed, and currently fronts The Dead Daisies.

Drop 1Tune-YardsW H O K I L L4ADLP (Pink, Green & Black Splatter Vinyl)Tune-Yards’ 2011 breakthrough second album whokill will receive a limited edition pressing on splatter vinyl to celebrate its 10th anniversary on Record Store Day

Upon its original release the album received accolades from The Guardian, Pitchfork, NPR, The New York Times, and it won the Village Voice’s prestigious Paz & Jop critic’s prize.

The brainchild of Merrill Garbus, tUnE-yArDs began life as dictaphone recordings which were then painstakingly mixed down on GarageBand to create her opening gambit, the debut album BiRd-BrAiNs. Initially released on a limited LP run with screen printed sleeves recycled from thrift store bargain bins, the album was formally released in late 2009. Alongside the record, she also started to build quite a reputation for her live performances. Using loop pedals, two mics, a snare drum, a ukelele, her distinctive voice (she’s spent time teaching singing in Kenya) and crucially, a second band member, Nate Brenner on bass. The album, w h o k i l l, marks a time when everything came together in to one cohesive whole. Recorded in a studio and influenced heavily by her moving to Oakland, California, she and Nate made an album that delivered on her early promise. Lyrically Garbus explores constructs of femininity and sexuality with the threat of violence that lurks on the streets where she now lives, while the energy of their show has been translated perfectly to record.

Drop 2TV Smith & Richard Strange1978Molecular ScreamLP1978 Written, Produced and Performed by TV Smith and Richard Strange. 1000 pressed on transparent red vinyl, gatefold sleeve with lyric inner sleeve and DL card. The tracks on this album have never been officially released before now. The eight songs on this album were recorded in 1978 on a 2-track stereo Revox A77 tape recorder. The recordings are unashamedly analogue, using one microphone and guitars plugged directly into the tape recorder. Bouncing down tracks irreversibly as they went on, forced to make creative decisions that could not be undone. Some hard choices had to be made with the mix, but with no record company meant no record company agenda. TV Smith and Richard Strange could write and record whatever they wanted – and did! It has been an enormous pleasure to rediscover these recordings, the result of a friendship of two artists emerging from broken bands and each about to embark on a lifelong adventure in words and music. TV SMITH – I wasn’t having a lot of fun in 1978 when Richard asked me to collaborate on a song he was writing called “Summer Fun.” I was in the final stages of songwriting for the second Adverts album “Cast Of Thousands,” a project that already seemed doomed to failure given an unenthusiastic record company, a band in the throes of falling apart, and a dwindling audience – but my creative juices were in full flow and I was ready for something different. I already knew Richard, of course, from the Doctors Of Madness, who I’d followed in the years before punk when I was still living in Devon and they were one of the few bands to come and play in the area. I considered them a warped poetic glam band with gothic leanings, and was slightly surprised when the song I’d been invited to work on turned out to be a kind of California surf pastiche. But I was game to get involved, and after we’d finished it and ventured forward with regular writing and recording sessions over the following weeks it soon became clear that “Summer Fun” was just a gateway drug, and the songs that were emerging from our combined forces were going to quickly become much deeper and much darker // RICHARD STRANGE – Watching the remnants of a musical dream being swept away by the juggernaut of corporate punk rock in 1976, I felt a combination of jealousy and resentment towards many of the key players who had been responsible for our demise. The Sex Pistols had supported my band Doctors of Madness early in their career, and nicked not only our future but £12.00 from a pair of trousers in our dressing room in Middlesbrough Town Hall! The Jam, who supported us over four shows at London’s fabled Marquee Club, were how I imagined The Who would be if they’d joined the Young Conservatives. Warsaw, our go-to support band in Manchester, had just changed their name to Joy Division, and Johnny and the Self-Abusers, our Scottish flag wavers, had become Simple Minds. All were being feted by the all-powerful music press, while we were being buried. But there was one punk band for whom I never had anything but the greatest affection …The Adverts.

Drop 2Various ArtistsToo Slow To Disco presents: YACHT SOUL – Cover VersionsHow Do You Are?2LPThis is the new compilation by TSTD/DJ Supermarkt with Soul/Funk Coverversions of Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems!

TSTD returns with another trip into the musical past of the sundrenched Westcoast: This time DJ Supermarkt unearthed 17 Soul & Funk Coverversions of original Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems. As slightly expected, the The Afro-American musicians add a heavy dose of Funk and heavenly Soul to the game. The original tracks are covered by big Soul & Funk acts like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson, but also forgotten acts like The Ebonys, Leslie Smith, Side Effect. And you can find tracks originally performed by the big league of the Westcoast, like The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Wings, and even The Beach Boys, alongside lesser known acts like Ned Doheny, Bill LaBounty, Airplay!

Most tracks are from the late 70s/early 80s, but failed to become big hits and fell under the radar. Like Chaka Khan doing a seriously funky version of Fleetwood Mac’s „Everywhere“ (from an unreleased album recording), next to obscure reworks like Leslie Smith’s version of „Nothin’ You Can Do About It“ by the overlooked Airplay (Jay Graydon and David Foster). There are especially surprising versions here, like Millie Jackson’s gospel-like rendering of „This Is It“ by Kenny Loggins/Michael McDonald, or Billy Paul’s „Black Power“-influenced version of Paul McCartney/Wings’ „Let Em In“ and the rare cover of The Beach Boys’ „God Only Knows“ by Betty Everett. Overall another TSTD collection of smooth, sunny, extremely soulful and funky tracks, that needed to be dug-out to be heard again. This is Bottled Sunshine!

Vinyl comes as usual in gatefold sleeve with liner notes, download code and 180g heavy orange double vinyl.

Drop 2Various ArtistsMay The Circle Remain Unbroken: A Tribute To Roky EricksonLight In The AtticLP * Pressed on special RSD color wax
* Includes bonus limited edition flexi of an ultra rare recording performed by Roky Erickson
* Pressed at RTI

Texan Roky Erickson was one of the true mind-blowing pioneers of psychedelic music. The original leader of the Austin-based 13th Floor Elevators formed in 1965, Erickson and band invented a brand new style or rock & roll, one that was slightly unhinged while it explored the consciousness-expanding influence of LSD on music. After three years, the group imploded with mental issues and legal challenges, ending with Erickson being incarcerated for several years in the Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Rusk, Texas. When he was released in the early ’70s the musician continued on his own trail, recording songs that had come to him in his far-flung cerebral wanderings. Erickson, who passed away May 31, 2019, is now celebrated on this 12-track tribute to one of the most original rockers ever. 

The participants range the whole world of modern music, and each chose one of Erickson’s originals to stamp their own imprint on. They include Billy F Gibbons, Lucinda Williams, Mosshart Sexton (a/k/a Alison Mosshart & Charlie Sexton), Neko Case, Mark Lanegan & Lynn Castle, Jeff Tweedy, Margo Price, Gary Clark Jr & Eve Monsees, Ty Segal, Chelsea Wolfe, The Black Angels and Brogan Bentley. The album is co-produced for release by Bill Bentley, executive producer of the 1990 Roky Erickson tribute album Where The Pyramid Meets The Eye on Sire Records, and Matt Sullivan, co-founder/owner of Light in the Attic Records.

The songs range from Erickson’s debut iconic original, “You’re Gonna Miss Me,” recorded when he was a member first in The Spades and then the 13th Floor Elevators during the early ’60s in Austin, to some of Erickson’s later songs, like “If You Have Ghosts,” which heard him exploring some of the outer limits of the human psyche. Each new recording is a stunning modern take on the sound that Roky Erickson gave the world over a half-century of writing, recording and touring. No one has ever equaled those explorations.

This truly is the music of the spheres, as Erickson once sang about his sound, as seen through the eyes and ears of those who are united in their love and respect for a person who dedicated his life to rock & roll. Roky Erickson, through the trials and tribulations of a man both imbued with greatness and haunted by darkness, never quit in his quest to share with others what he heard and saw. As he sang on the 13th Floor Elevators last recording, “May the circle remain unbroken.”

It was picked up and released by many RSD territories, resulting in social media posts from Amsterdam and London to Nashville, Canada, Massachusetts, Sweden, Ohio, Boston, Illinois, Bratislava, Los Angeles, Portugal, Australia and many more, all using the hashtag #behindthedykes. Besides that, the album was No.1 in the Dutch compilation chart the week after its release, making it the best sold RSD release of Drop 2. And that same week it entered the US Billboard compilation chart at no.5, after being tipped by Rolling Stones Magazine as one of their favorite RSD2020 releases to look out for. So more than enough reasons for a second volume, to be released on RSD 2021. The concept is the same: Much sought after Dutch beat and psych rarities on a 2LP colored vinyl, with amazing artwork, track-by-track liner notes and band photos. All songs on volume 2 have been newly transferred and remastered from the original master tapes, some in their original mono versions, including 2 newly unearthed and previously unreleased gems.

Drop 1 Wailers & U-ROYMy Cup Runneth OverTsosume RecordsLPIn 1976, U Roy was the new attraction in Jamaican music. With his first hit Wake the Town six years earlier, he had imposed a new style on the Kingston soundsystems, which consisted of taking up local hits by speaking in “voice over” around the choruses. That year he took on the Wailers’ Soul Rebel, which he transformed into the Natty Rebel, which would become his absolute hit until today. Fifty years later, U Roy, who is approaching 80, delivers an entire album around the Wailers discography. A project initiated by the American producer Gary Himelfarb alias Doctor Dread, who arrived in Jamaica in 1977 and who signed the biggest names of the time on his label RAS Records, from Black Uhuru to Jimmy Cliff via Bunny Wailer, Inner Circle or Gregory Isaacs.

In the fold of Sanctuary Records, which also owns reggae reissue giant Trojan Records, Doctor Dread has obtained permission to use the Wailers tracks recorded by Lee Perry in the early 1970s. He then locked himself in a Kingston studio with U Roy, who recorded 14 songs in four hours (!), Freestyle as in the great times. Bunny Wailer, the last survivor of the original trio, was also present to witness this historic session, which pits two icons of Jamaican reggae from the 70’s against each other.

Drop 1WarpaintThe Fool. Andrew Weatherall SessionsRough Trade2LPOn the completion of the recording of The Fool, Andrew Weatherall was given access to the album’s master tapes to work on mixes for the finished record. The track Baby, along with Warpaint’s iconic single Undertow, were both mixed by the Guv’nor and appeared on the finished album that was released in 2010.

For the first time ever, this Record Store Day edition brings together all the mixes Weatherall created while working on the project, including a never released before, finished version of Jubilee.  

“I remember that one of the main reasons why we wanted Andrew Weatherall to mix the Warpaint album was because we loved his brilliant work on the Primal Scream remix of “Higher Than The Sun”. I know that we discussed this particular track with Emily and she knew it of course and also loved it. I think it was a key reason they agreed to let Andrew do the mix.” – Geoff Travis – Rough Trade Records

When the album was released it featured 16 unreleased recordings from Zevon’s personal archives. It also included 6 never before released songs.  The release also included a 5-part interview with KGSR’s Jody Denberg from  the year 2000.  Now, for the first time ever these recordings will be reissued on vinyl.

Drop1 Wasted YouthReagan’s InJackpot RecordsLP2000 pressed worldwide on Lime Green opaque vinyl for RSD 2021. Early Influential LA Hardcore Band’s 1981 Debut Album. Cover Artwork by Pushead (Metallica, Misfits). Colored Vinyl Pressed at RTI With Original Lyric Sheet. Sourced From The Master Tapes. Often compared to Black Flag, Wasted Youth was a great punk band in its own right and was among the exciting bands to come from the Los Angeles punk scene of the late ’70s/early ’80s. If you’re looking for slickness, you won’t find it on Reagan’s In, a ten-song EP that first came out in 1981. Reagan’s In is about as raw as it gets — not only does the production (or lack of production) reject slickness completely, but also, the lyrics are extremely raw, direct, and gut-level. This is true of snarling socio-political rants like the title song (an inflammatory attack on President Ronald Reagan), “Born Deprived,” and “Fuck Authority,” as well as the crude, off-color “Uni-High Beefrag.” Wasted Youth’s lyrics are about as subtle as a sledgehammer, but then, subtlety isn’t what the L.A. residents were going for — like Black Flag, the Circle Jerks, and other L.A. punk outfits of that era, Wasted Youth follows its gut instincts. And on this very angry LP, those instincts serve the band well.

Drop 1 William TylerNew VanitasMerge RecordsLPThe concept of “vanitas” in medieval art refers to the juxtaposition of macabre symbols of death with material ephemera in order to illustrate the impermanence of earthly things. What struck me about this was not the representation of death in a macabre/morbid way, but rather that very sense of ephemerality and impermanence. Reading an article about the history of ephemera in art led me to the concept of vanitas, and I wanted to find a way to pivot that in a more, well, hopeful direction. But these paintings force us to bear witness to the contrasts of life, death, and impermanence, and if 2020 has taught me about anything, it is this concept of “bearing witness” both on a personal and political level. 

With these new songs, I really just wanted to create a sort of mood board for where my head and soul have been at the last few months. The sound dissolves into another sound, the image into another image. Time passing, transience, change. Although “static” means lacking movement, static sonically is almost the literal opposite: it is transience, noise, change.

Drop 1 WipersYouth Of America (Anniversary Edition: 1981-2021)Jackpot Records2LP3000 pressed. Double Colored Vinyl (Clear w/ Black Swirl) LP Set With Deluxe Foil Gatefold Jacket. Featuring Bonus LP Of Rare Mixes And Tracks From The 1981 Sessions. Includes Original Rejected Cover Artwork. Audiophile Pressing at RTI. Cut by Kevin Gray. Simply obliterating any conception of the Wipers as a mere punk band, Greg Sage released this follow-up to “Is This Real?” in 1981 – a sophisticated, overwhelming response to the evil times marked by the turn of the decade. Broken up into six long songs, “Youth of America” is a much colder, harrowing experience than the teen angst of their debut. Vocally, Sage comes off as sleep-deprived and forsaken, snarling not only at his own predicament but at the predicament of the entire world. The centerpiece of the album is the title track, a dire ten minutes of paranoia and angst that gave Sage the space to showcase his wildest, darkest playing yet. Track listing: LP 1: 1 Taking Too Long, 2 Can This Be, 3 Pushing The Extreme, 4 When It’s Over, 5 No Fair, 6 Youth Of America. LP 2: 1 My Vengeance, 2 The Story, 3 Scared Stiff, 4 When It’s Over (Alternate Version), 5 Pushing The Extreme (Out-take mix), 6 No Fair (Out-take mix), 7 Youth Of America (Out-take Mix).RockPunk5003000

Going to hand ye over to the Shane lad now as he mentions a few down the road bits..

Sound, Ray!
And thanks for the compliments to me and Adam, appreciate it! As for your proposal, I’m going to pure sit on the fence and say ‘I don’t mind’.
I think we’d miss your contribution though.

Anyway, back to this week’s stuff. Hi everyone, hope ye’re good!
Not a huge amount to mention this week, Santie is the main man from here on in maybe.
But some nice ones still.
First up is Irish artist, AILBHE REDDY with her second album ‘Endless Affair’ out Paddy’s day next year.
Her first album ‘Personal History’ is great. We played it a fair bit in the shop.
We will have the indies magenta/sky blue vinyl and the Irish exclusive coke bottle clear vinyl versions of it.
Here’s the first song off of it:

Second to mention is FLOATING POINTS’ new EP release ‘2022’. Which is coming out on December 16th.
I like him. Ray and myself really enjoyed the record he did with Pharoah Sanders (last year I think?)
The years kinda feel like a blur after covid.
Here’s a song he released today from it:

EDDIE PILLER is releasing another compilation ‘Mod Sounds of the 60S; Vol 2: Freakbeat and Psyche scene’ on 4 CD, 6 LP purple vinyl and 2 LP black vinyl and they’re released in February next year.

Also worth a mention coming around the corner:

NELL SMITH & FLAMING LIPS ‘Where the Viaduct Looms’ on CD and Vinyl – Out December 16th

and also THE WOMBATS ‘Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation’ on pink vinyl – Out April next year.

That’s it I think from me this week.
Oh, here’s the latest video Adam and Ray did on Friday last:

Sound, Ray. Back to you so. Cheers.

Thanks Shane!

Right last one for this week so is Integral for the 2nd of Dec…Rough trade records reissue two ARTHUR RUSSELL albums on vinyl” corn” and “ love is overtaking me” , there are a couple of BARRY ADAMSON reissues on Mute on coloured vinyl “ i will set you free” and “ know where to run”…BOYGENIUS ( BRIDGERS, DACUS and BAKER) release their 2018 6 track ep on cd, i thought it was out on cd at the time?, maybe tis a reissue, sales notes kind of say its a first timer on cd…i dunno…Knitting Factory have the 50th anniversary of “ afrodisiac” by FELA KUTI on coloured vinyl, KYLE DIXON & MICHAEL STEIN have the score to Stranger things part 4 across 2 volumes on coloured vinyl via Invada records. SUFJAN STEVENS releases classic song “ fourth of july” as a 7” red vinyl version…its reworked a bit i think…great song, stone wall classic of an album if i didn’t tell ye a 100 times before…( maybe not for everyone, but if you spend enough time with it, it will be your friend…dark and bleak album in parts but yet strangely comforting…this song encapsulates that i think…” were all gonna die” lyric is repeated over and over towards the end of the song ..bleak , but a truer lyric never wrote! But there’s a strange comfort to the song, even though its a song about death…dead mother talking to her son on her dead bed

 “Shall we look at the moon, my little loon

Why do you cry?

Make the most of your life, while it is rife

While it is light…”

its so beautiful musically/vocally…am I losing it? Here tis to prove my madness

(171) Sufjan Stevens, “Fourth Of July” (Official Audio) – YouTube

Lastly HEAVENLY REMIXES 5 & 6 on 2LP and there is a new WHITE LUNG album also.

(121) The Murder Capital – A Thousand Lives (Official Video) – YouTube

Lots more on TMC over the next few months I’m sure..

(121) Simple Minds – Vision Thing (Official Audio) – YouTube

Universal for the 21st Oct have quite a bit…none bigger than the new TAYLOR SWIFT album “ midnights” via EMI…it is available now on a host of physical formats….4 different cd variants as well as 4 different coloured lp variants. A few weeks ago i spoke about the biggest stars born in the music game this century and I forgot this lady…my bad…she fully deserves to be up there…always striving forwards ( sometimes against a shit storm) but always making credible well written music…she deserves a huge amount of respect…her last 3 or 4 albums have been really good. I vaguely remember back in the day something with Kanye West where he came on stage at the grammys or some awards ceremony and embarrassed her ( and himself ) after Taylor won the award by saying the Beyonce album, video or something was the best and not Taylors…she was only 17 at the time i think…some said after it was all orchestrated ..sher i dont know, she was only a kid. She has proven herself to be one of the 21st century greatest artists in my opinion…give her music a go sometime, the last 3 or 4 records are really good…shes a fan of the aul record shops as well so we are bound to like her then…some see us for what we are, some dont..Taylor is in our corner, we will take that. Going back to the greatest acts ever from a few weeks ago, i playfully left the forgotten man of music out..a Mr. David Bowie…sher i was only playing like..

EMI also has the new album from LOYLE CARNER “ hugo” on cd. Lp and indies lp version. I listen to a bit of bbc radio 6 most sundays and Loyle was doing a show back along for a few weeks…a right muso, smart, informative dude who loves his tunes…i think he said one day his name is Coyle Larner ( i could be wrong there) …here is “ hate” from the new album

(123) Loyle Carner – Hate – YouTube

“Originally released in 1974 on Polydor Records, Mick Hanly & Mícháel Ó Domhnaill’s Celtic Folkweave is considered one of the most seminal albums in the Irish traditional music genre. The album features some of Ireland’s most well-regarded traditional musicians, including Mick Hanly, Mícháel Ó Domhnaill, Liam O’Flynn, Matt Molloy, Donal Lunny, Tommy Peoples, Declan McNeils & Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill. All of the musicians on Celtic Folkweave would go on to make notable contributions to the Irish and Celtic music genres, with Molloy, Lunny, Ní Dhomhnaill, Ó Domhnaill, and Peoples ending up in The Bothy Band, one of the most influential bands playing Irish traditional music in the 1970s. Remastered with additional tracks, this album features four bonus tracks, and the previously unreleased The Banks Of Sweet Primroses. The album artwork is designed by Des O’Meara & Partners and is centered around a triskelion graphic, a neolithic design featuring a triple spiral with rotational symmetry. Celtic Folkweave will be available on CD and LP.”

Sony for the 21st of Oct have the brand new album from A HA “ true north” on cd, std lp or indies only coloured lp…as a child was a bit of an A HA fan…had “ hunting high and low” and “ scoundrel days” on vinyl and used play them to death…i reckon i was around 12 or 13. 9th studio album this one…here is “ im in” from the new record…nice song.

(123) a-ha – I’m In (Official Video) – YouTube

Sony also have a new Meghan Trainor album on the 21st of Oct.

Christy from CROW BLACK CHICKENs youngfella is one of them and Cian has played in the shop a few times with different bands…here is a tune from the new record..check them out , i think they are the berries

(124) GOD ALONE – Tsktsktsk (OFFICIAL VIDEO) – YouTube

Here is more on the band: “God Alone are a 5 piece math/noise rock band hailing from Cork, Ireland comprised of students of the CIT Cork School Of Music. They combine the dense atmosphere of post metal with elements of indie, hardcore, jazz and dance music. They self released their debut EP “INTIVIM” in late 2016 to critical acclaim and subsequently released their first full length release: titled “Poll na mBrón”, an album based on events and stories from Our Lady’s “Hospital” of Cork. Shortly after the release of their debut full length, they returned to the studio to create their most eclectic mix of sounds yet: their sophomore self titled EP, released in November 2019 which enabled them to embark on their first Ireland and UK headline tour. They have played numerous Irish festivals including Townlands Carnival, Monolith Festival and the Siege of Limerick and were recently crowned winners of the “Mammothfest Best Band Competition” of Mammothfest in Brighton, beating 200 bands across Ireland and the UK who battled through the heats. They are also currently booked to appear at ArcTanGent 2022 in the UK. Their self described “sad metal with some dancey bits” heard on their first single release “Dagda” has been described by Overblown as “a blast of visceral fury and dance floor filling interludes”. They have been featured and interviewed on numerous media platforms including Hot Press, Totally Cork, Kerrang and Metal Hammer. Their latest release will see them push the boundaries of metal even further, until it cracks. “The band’s new self-titled EP hits that sweet spot in a way that makes God Alone memorable from the get-go.” – KERRANG. “God Alone that you realize what makes the next generation of metal bands so special.” – METAL HAMMER.

The Orchard also for the 21st sees the release of the second collection of ‘B Sides and Rarities’ from Rumer on Vinyl,  a Very Limited Caroline Polachek 7″ (to which cuts will inevitably need to be made according to the rep) Rubblebucket with a Pink Swirl Vinyl and Per Husby Septett on BBE. We also have Metal from Inclination, Krisiun and EXHUMED.

Proper for the 21st of October has the new album by FREEDY JOHNSTON “ back on the road to you” on Forty below records…available as cd lp or indies only canary lp…some nice guests on the record like Aimee Mann and Susanna Hoffs…here is the title track from the album

(124) Freedy Johnston “Back on the Road to You” {Official Audio} – YouTube

Proper also has a reissue of OTIS SPANN  – otis spann is the blues on cd or 2lp on Candid records, OPETH release “ the roundhouse tapes “ on gatefold triple vinyl and there is a new TEGAN AND SARA album on mom and pop records, cd , std lp and indies coloured vinyl on that one.

Republic of Music for the end of the month have the debut album by THE MARY WALLOPERS on BC only for oct 28th…lp to follow in Jan, the usual plant delay stuff…this band is super folks…a right fusion of stuff but Irish trad/folk at its core..up the country they are from it westmeath or Louth or  somewhere? Here is “ frost is all over” from the debut album…class…quality but don’t  take themselves too seriously i’d say, this band are the  berries also…i really like them.

(124) The Mary Wallopers – ‘Frost Is All Over’ – YouTube

Nice Irish flavour again to the newsletter, thats the way we like it anyway.

Going to hand ye over to Shane now as he takes ye down the road with the interesting announcements etc…

Sound Ray!
How’s it going everyone? Hopefully as well as can be.
There’s a good few to mention this week again. Stuff is ramping up now with Santa around the corner (but Halloween first!)

First up is yet another new release from legend NEIL YOUNG. He’s with CRAZY HORSE again for a brand new album ‘World Record’, out on November 18th. Fair play to him, incredibly productive. Great passion in his lyrics. Here’s a song from it,

Second up is another legend, PAUL WELLER with an interesting compilation set ‘WILL OF THE PEOPLE’
Here’s a bit about it:
“Back in the autumn of 2003, the Fly On The Wall 3LP & 3CD collection brought together a wealth of Paul Weller solo recordings that stretched back to 1991. The B-sides, 12” EP tracks, single remixes and ‘live’ recordings featured all had one thing in common, namely that they hadn’t been included on any of his hugely successful solo albums. Furthermore, in many instances, they’d become highly sought after as the original 7”, 10”, 12” and CD singles and promo’s that first aired them were fetching significant sums from fans and collectors.

Will Of The People follows up Fly On The Wall and takes the listener through a similar mix of rarities, this time spanning the period 2002 to 2021. Like its predecessor not only does it make for some great listening but it’s a superb way to hear all those hard to get solo tracks that haven’t been featured on an album before. This collection has been compiled by Paul Weller himself and Paul has provided artwork ideas and sketches for the design. Alongside this Paul has written track-by-track sleeve notes. The release includes additional sleeve notes from writer and broadcaster John Wilson.”

Adam’s a big Weller fan so I’m sure he’ll be interested!

Thirdly is a band I like, saw them in Belfast a few years ago, PARAMORE. They have a brand new album called ‘This is Why’ coming out in February next year. Their sound has changed a bit over the last few albums from their earlier punkier days but the songs are still great. Here’s the title track from it, sounds good:

Fourth is a nice deluxe gatefold reissue of IRON MAIDEN’s ‘Number of the Beast’ (40th Anniversary). Classic album! 3 LP including a live concert and the inclusion of ‘Total Eclipse’ on the original album/tracklist. Bruce Dickinson’s first album with them. He’s another legend. It’s coming out on November 18th, bit pricey though.

Also coming out around the corner: a THAT PETROL EMOTION CD box set‘Homework Remixes’ by DAFT PUNK , another EDDIE PILLER compilation record, this time ‘Acid Jazz’
a 25th anniversary picture disc of SPICE GIRLS ‘Spice World’
A 6 LP or 3 CD set of B-sides and rarities from PJ Harvey (November 4th) (maybe should have mentioned that earlier)
A 20th anniversary deluxe reissue FLAMING LIPS ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots’ on 5 LP or 6 CD sets, two FRANK BLACK and the Catholics releases, CD and red vinyl release from TOYAH,
Live from Lund 1970 2 CD album from PINK FLOYD and also a deluxe coloured edition of SHARON VAN ETTEN‘s latest album from this year.

Here are the lads with the video as well.–HG0

Back to you Ray so bud, cheers.

Thanks Shane!

Lastly so for this week is INTEGRAL for the 28th of Oct and sticking with the Irish flavour…( from an artistic /creative stand point i think we punch way above our weight for a small country…maybe tis green tinted glasses i dunno) Partisan records has the new AOIFE NESSA FRANCES album “ protector” on cd . lp or indies LP…here is “ emptiness follows” from the second album

(124) Aoife Nessa Frances – Emptiness Follows (Official Video) – YouTube

New albums also from JARV IS…, ASGEIRDEAD CROSS ( Supergroup) , NIGHTMARES ON WAX…there is a deluxe reissue of latest BICEP album “ isles” ( northern irish again) and reissue of MICK TAYLORS first 2 solo albums in one double vinyl  and lastly “ a modern jazz symposium of music & poetry” by CHARLES MINGUS mastered from analogue tapes by Kevin Gray.

Sin e for this weeks folks..

As Prince heard down here 30 odd years ago ( not our proudest moment, I remember being awkwardly  embarrassed by it as a 16 year old, now he was acting the bit of a langer on his king size bed with his guitar squealing for about 20 minutes)…. OLE OLE OLE OLE!

Thanks for listening

Ray Shane and young Adam.

Last week saw the announcements for Black Friday releases which follows the same rules as record shop day…Black Friday is the 25th of November…there are about 80 or so special titles released for the day…its first come first served and we cannot hold stuff for people and  we cant go online until 6 pm on the day in question…its aim is to drive footfall into the record shops…the full list for UK and Irish record shops is here

RSD Black Friday | Record Store Day

So if you are interested in something, drop us your wishlist on email and we will do our best to try and cover demand…wishlists need to be back by the 10th of October…also this year we will set up links on the website so folks have more info but the qtys will be at zero so you wont be able to buy anything but you can look…Shane and Adam should have some up on the site today so they will link them and we will add more over the coming weeks.

Here is the link for those on our website folks: BLACK FRIDAY RSD 2022 Products

So main week for this week is 7th October and we will start with Warner…sorry first…just got an email…new SMASHING PUMPKINS album for next year…its a 3cd ( 22 quid) or 4lp ( 110 quid) rock opera…i am not sure how many of the vinyl sets i shall end up getting…what i do know is that there are only 75 of each vinyl set coming into the country…so if this interests you,,drop us a mail and we will do our very best…Shane will have more info or there will be more info on the linky link…expensive again i’m afraid…

Anyways back to Warner for the 7th October and Cork’s own TALOS releases his third studio album now “ dear chaos” …guests include LISA HANNIGAN and SOHN…available via BMG  on CD and coke bottle clear vinyl…one of the biggest talents from our home county no doubt, here is “ all ours” from the new album

(100) Talos – All Ours (Official Music Video) – YouTube

The box set ( wonderful) for PINK FLOYD “ animals” hits the shelves on the 7th Oct also…it has a gatefold LP, CD, DVD and bluray …and the price is right in my opinion,,,the lp only release did really well last week when it came out and again the price was right, 25/26 quid, nice gatefold sleeve, felt like a sturdy product…id imagine Floyds royalty rates would be up there with anyones so begs the question…why are we paying 30 to 40 quid for a bog standard reissue when this record  can be on the shelf for 30/40 % less …the release gave the shop a buzz last week and the price had a lot to do with it….boxset out on the 7th anyway.

There is a brand new album by LAMB OF GOD via Nuclear Blast “ omens” on cd, std lp or indies white/blue marbled vinyl, there is the CD/DVD version of JETHRO TULLs “ thick as a brick” via PLG UK , SLADEs “ crackers” get a reissue on BMG on cd or indies splattered vinyl, SWEET release a “ greatest hits” 1969 to 1978 as a 2lp or as a 3cd and BMG continue with THE KINKS reissue series on vinyl…four more up next are “ face to face” , “ kinda kinks”, ‘something else by the kinks‘ and “ the kink kontroversy” .

National album day is also happening on Saturday the 15th of October but these albums can be preordered and can be kept aside. National album day is now in its 5th year and this year its theme is debut albums…we don’t have the list yet but titles will start appearing soon…to coincide with it ( well not really!!) we have a treat for live music fans …we have a bumper day in the shop on Saturday the 15th of October ( national album day) when we are thrilled to host not only one live band but 2 …and 2 of Cork and Irelands finest in our opinions… launching their debut album “ sucker for stars” we will have THE BURMA at 12 noon on the 15th…these lads are improving all the time and i for one really love their sound…i think this is 4th or 5th or maybe even 6th time the lads have played in the shop…few lineup changes a bit through the years but Tony, Peter and Cian have been mainstays  and getting tighter and tighter and better and better with each release. Their debut album will be available on the day on vinyl and CD and the lads will perform songs from the album and hopefully sign a f**king ton of albums after the performance…here is a little bit about the lads and the album…and here is “ dont believe your dreams” from the album

(100) The Burma – Don’t Believe Your Dreams (Official Music Video) – YouTube

“Bold indie rock trio The Burma will be sharing their long-awaited album, Sucker For Stars, on the 14th of

October via The Burma Music. With the release of their LP, listeners are invited to discover the

yet-to-be-heard title track, which will be featured alongside the band’s chart-topping single ‘Don’t Believe

Your Dreams’, a record that rose to No.1 in the Irish iTunes single charts and landed at No.6 in The

Homegrown Top 20 in the Official Charts. Also taken from their album is the single ‘Sleepers’, which

climbed its way to No.4 on Irish iTunes and No.12 on The Homegrown Top 20. It is unsurprising that

noteworthy tastemaker publications have praised the band, namely The Spill Magazine, Variance

Magazine, RTÉ XM, CLASH Magazine, Rolling Stone India, Hot Press and Pop Off, to

mention a few, and received extensive national airplay, collecting over 140k streams across platforms.

Sucker For Stars is a rocker’s fantasy. Like a new band poster, the album offers fans a vivid image of what

The Burma stands for as a band, printed in high gloss. A few of the featured tracks thrash lawlessly, inciting

miniature musical riots while other ballad-type records live together in gently strummed harmony. With only

guitars, drums, and vocals, The Burma has written an album that is rich and dynamic.

Proudly local, the band takes its name from The Burma Steps in Cobh, Co. Cork, Ireland. Its members are

Tony O’Donovan (on vocals) and Peter Piggott (on guitar) who are both from Cobh as well as Cian

Doherty (on drums) who is from Doolin Co. Clare. Drawing inspiration from The Strokes, Tame Impala

and Daft Punk, the band has created a signature sound comparable to Glass Animals, MGMT and Foster

the People.

The Burma muses on the making of their LP: “Sucker For Stars is a body of work which we officially started

two and a half years ago – although it‘s been much longer in the making. The album represents two different

sounds for us – the first, made up of 6 older songs which we’ve held onto over the years- and then 5 brand

new songs showing where our writing style is at in its current form. It’s a milestone moment for us to have

our debut album out in the world, it’s been a long time coming.”

Try get in and support the lads if ye can!!

Followed up then on Saturday the 15th of October by THE SHAKER HYMN the bloody wonderful Shaker hymn …the lads were to play a few months back the day after their third studio album came out but Covid struck and cancelled all their planned shows that week…a balls for them…true to their word though they said they would be back and they are…Saturday the 15th at 1pm…playing songs from the wonderful new album” the last concorde” is the third single from the album “ wild silk”
(100) The Shaker Hymn – Wild Silk (Official Video) – YouTube

The siopa would really appreciate if the community came out in support of these two local original bands …so sat the 15th 12 noon THE BURMA, 1PM  THE SHAKER HYMN…mark in the book, speak to the boss, call off the match, leave the bowie reissue for another what needs to be done folks..sat 15th Oct!

Quick one regards National album Day…Warner were on and need figures back by next Monday so if anyone wants any of these please email us back by Sunday…thanks!!

Sony for the 7th October has the new BEYONCÉ vinyl “ renaissance” as a 2lp deluxe black vinyl…we wont talk about the price Bruno. Speaking of Sony i got a call from a regular lad last wednesday to tell me the sad news that his friend Maurice Byrne and my rep for years from Sony had passed away…id say Maurice was only about 70, and suffered a lot with ill health in recent say he left Sony about 10 or 12 years ago now and the last time i spoke to him was after the fire when Dave put us in touch.  I was only a kid when i opened the shop but Maurice was one of those who looked after me….got me credit with Sony which was hugely important for a green kid opening a shop..he always visited the siopa when he was down and he never steered me wrong when doing my orders ..he nearly done them for me to be honest with his Sony stuff and others at times and he nearly always hit the nail on the head..( i still make a balls of it at times!)…would be safe to say that he didn’t suffer fools gladly ( well bar this green one) but he always had my back…rest in peace Maur.

The Orchard for the 7th of October  sees the release of the new album by The Cult on CD or LP..THE LIMITED INDIES LP IS SOLD OUT i think but i will try for more so if interested shout! , the latest Courtney Marie Andrews on Fat Possum with a Limited Red Vinyl and the Various Artists / Songs Of John Prine Vol 2 tribute album with a Limited Blue Vinyl.

For  Metal fans, this week the Orchard has new albums by Incantation, Goatwhore and Queensryche which comes as a cd, a deluxe clamshell box edition or as a 2lp.

The main one to note from Proper for the 7th Oct is the the 10th anniversary double lp vinyl repress of Mac Millers mixtape “ macadelic”.

Universal for the 7th of Oct have the new PAUL HEATON/JACQUI ABBOTT album “ N.K Pop”  on Emi..they’re 5th together now…super they are…available on cd and lp…Heaton is the berries i think, there is a super documentary out there on him…from hull to something is the title, well worth a watch…there is a piece in it how Jacqui Abbott joined the beautiful south…she was back at a house party when she was 17 and Heaton was there, her friends were saying “ go on you should sing for him” and she did…she said, and she was being kind id say that he had a few drinks on board …that was that anyway until a year and a half later when Heaton said to his mate do you remember that night back in so and sos when this girl sang…the pal was going “ huh” …heaton “ id like you to find her”,  pal was going “ huh” …he tracked her down anyway while she was stocking shelves in Sainsburys and said  do you remember the night you sang for Paul Heaton …she was like  “huh but yeah”…pal “ he would like if you would do an audition” and that was that as they would say! Here is “ too much for one ( not enough for two) “…yet another top tune from a pair of maestros.

(102) Paul Heaton, Jacqui Abbott – Too Much For One (Not Enough For Two) – YouTube

Speaking of maestros …Mr. Mark Knopfler has a new boxset out on the 7th Oct via UMC “ studio albums 2009 to 2018” limited 6 cd or 9 lp sets,  gathering together the second half of his solo songbook with his more recent studio albums, to add to last year’s ’96 – 2007 collection. The box will include Get Lucky (2009), Privateering (2012), Tracker (2015) and his latest release Down The Road Wherever (2018) plus a collection of studio b-sides and bonus tracks and two previously unreleased songs – ‘Back In The Day’ and ‘Precious Voice From Heaven’. The audio quality has been overseen by the original mastering engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering, while vinyl was cut by Bernie Grundman. 9LP Boxset – 9LP collection, pressed on 180g black vinyl and housed in a rigid outer slipcase. Includes 5 embossed art prints of each of the original covers.

6CD Boxset – 6CD collection in clamshell-style box. Original studio albums housed in gatefold sleeves with lyric sheets. Bonus disc in single sleeve wallet with lyrics insert. Plus 5 art cards.

JAPAN reissue via UMC as a half speed master “ exorcising ghosts” career spanning best of , there is an expensive deluxe 30th anniversary box set version of THE TRAGICALLY HIP “ fully completely” , LUDOVICO EINAUDI has a dlp “ reimagined 1 & 2”  out on the 7th, new albums out also from EASY LIFE and ACTION BRONSON, Decca has HANS ZIMMER “ around the world in 80 days” ost on vinyl, brand new HILARY HAHN on Deutsche Grammophon on cd and lp and last but not least the next two releases in the Bluenote tone poet series with KENNY BURRELL self titled album and GRANT GREEN “ feeling the spirit” .

Sometimes ye might feel that i put the aul invisibility cloak on.. but …yes but…in my defense just telling ye the way it is…Universal , Sony , Integral and Cargo all come out of the one distribution centre warehouse in Aylesbury in the UK ( Cinram) …now Cinram only in the last few weeks were bought out by Utopia distribution services limited , a group company of Utopia Music…it reads as a really positive thing, sher i dont know, way above my pay grade…anyway says he, there has been teething problems…orders placed 9 days ago , not landed, cant get invoices for stuff that has landed…yada yada yada…cloak going on.

Integral so for the 7th of Oct has new albums from GILLA BANDBONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN and ALVVAYS as well as THE COMMUNARDS reissue of “ red”.

Going to hand ye to Shane now as he takes ye on another magical mystery tour…roll up roll up.
Sound, Ray!

How’s it going everyone? Hope ye’re well.

Well said on the pricing Ray. I agree. The last three Pink Floyd reissues (Piper, Saucerful and Animals) have all been very reasonable. And they’ve been really well remastered and sound great.
Don’t know why Beyonce has to be three times the price.

Anyway, a few to mention as always for down the road a bit.
First up as Ray mentioned, the SMASHING PUMPKINS have a brand new one coming out called ‘ATUM’. Over 30 songs on it.
Here’s a bit about it:


  • The album is a rock opera presented in three acts by inimitable American rock band The Smashing Pumpkins.

Not out for a while yet, April next year, but one to wait for. To be honest, Billy Corgan’s voice grates on me a bit at times but they are legends of the 90s no doubt and when they hit the spot, it’s great.

SPOON’s excellent album from earlier this year ‘Lucifer on the Sofa’ is getting a reworking and will be called ‘Lucifer on the Moon‘. Out on the 4th of November.

ECHO & The Bunnymen are reissuing ‘Evergreen’. We will have it on CD and vinyl.

DINOSAUR JR. are also bringing out a reissue in ‘Beyond’ for its 15th anniversary. There will be a really limited green and purple pressing of it with a bonus 7 inch. Out at the end of October. Great band.

Also coming soon: FRANK SINATRA – ‘Collected’ on gold coloured vinyl (a nice collection of his songs), a live NIGHTMARES ON WAX release and a live one too (from Chicago) by MY MORNING JACKET on 3 lp orange vinyl.

That’s about it I think for this week from me. Looking forward to hearing the new HAMSANDWICH and BURMA too, Ray.

Back to you so.


Thanks Shane.

Right last one for this week so is Integral for the 14th Oct…there is a new BILL CALLAHAN album “ yti…” its reality written backwards…again above my skill set…cd is 14th oct, lp is not till feb next year though…out via Drag city.

CAN live in cuxhaven 1976 …third in the live series now, out on Mute on CD and indies blue vinyl…a couple of debut album reissues for National Album Day ( 15th oct) by SMITH & BURROWS” funny looking angels” as a picture disc ( Tom Smith of Editors and Andy Burrowes of Razorlight amongst others) and THE NATIONAL self titled debut also as a white vinyl version…i suppose the National give hope to bands with an age profile  in their mid to late 20s to keep chasing the dream…this album was made and released and toured  whilst all the band held down full time jobs ( you know what i mean)…keep believing and creating i suppose, you just never know.

Sin sin for this week so folks

Thanks for listening as always

Ray, Shane and young Adam.

The new LAMBCHOP album is out on City Slang on the 30th.

A little grumble at the industry here now…the whole direct to consumer stuff is becoming more prevalent all the time…the industry from where i sit has always had challenges but for your suppliers to be competing with you,  cannibalizing the market,  taking your customers is in reality very harsh…folks want to support the independent shops but we appreciate fully when the record company does exclusive D2Cs that folks go that way…we get it from a customer’s point of view but from a record companies point of view , tis harsh…we advertise and display and plug record companies wares 360 odd days a year……its a two way street to be fair like all relationships but there’s a sense as we would say in Cork “ that she’s doing the dirt on him”  ..  when there is a bit of cream to be had, the record companies do a D2C …(a lot of music retail websites also are owned or partly owned by record companies so folks may not even know they are buying direct from the record company) …sher it is what it is at this stage and i dont see it changing…a little grumble is all!

Sony for the 30th has the new BUDDY GUY cd ” the blues don’t lie” 

The Orchard for the 30th sept  sees the release of the latest OFF! album from former Black Flag and Circle Jerks member Keith Morris with Purple Vinyl, two ‘Live At Levitation’ releases from Moon Duo and Psychic Ills, both with 2 Coloured Vinyls to choose from, and Julie Odell’s latest album ‘Autumn Eve’, again with Coloured Vinyl.

Going to hand over to Shane now as he takes ye down the road with some release and announcements etc..Cheers, Ray!
How’s it going all? Hope the week is going well for ye.
I agree Ray about the D2C stuff, it’s a shame. The Alice in Chains box set is one I might have got if it came into the shop.

A few decent releases once again coming down the yellow brick road worth a mention.

First up is a 30th anniversary picture disc of Madonna’s ‘Erotica’ which is out on October 21st. It was originally banned from general release so will be a nice one to get now.
We have a few die-hard Madonna fans who call to the shop and buy nearly everything she releases.

Some of her stuff is very collectable too and shoots up in value online in the years after they come out. Whether you agree with that or not is another thing, but I guess that’s the nature of collectables and vinyl definitely has a bit of that.

Second up is the new album from WEYES BLOOD ‘And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow’ coming out in November. Her last one was very good so looking forward to hearing this one. Here’s ‘It’s not just me, it’s everybody’ from it:
We will be getting the indies clear vinyl version of it but quantities are limited so fastest finger first if interested.

Another talented songwriter is ROZI PLAIN and she has a new album coming called ‘Prize’ but it’s not out until January, so a while to save up.

Those are the three main ones but also coming soon: a JIMI HENDRIX Live album on CD and vinyl, more formats of the KISS ‘Creatures of the Night’ anniversary reissue, a DOLLY PARTON Best Of a new album by WARHAUS and a half speed remaster/reissue of THE YARDBIRDS ‘Yardbirds’ featuring their original lineup.

Here’s the link to THE BEATLES – Revolver formats on our site, think I might have missed it last week.

Oh and Adam and Ray are back with d’video:

Back to you Ray so!

Thanks Shane!

Right so last one for this week is INTEGRAL for the 7th of Oct…they have the new GILLA BAND album ( formerly girl band) “ most normal” on Rough trade records…will be available as a cd, lp, indies blue lp and only for these shores an Irish shop only white vinyl version……nice Irish flavour to tonights newsletter isnt there…see the two way street thing in action with the Irish shop only release…” shes not doing the dirt on ya at all boyy”…here is a tune from the new GILLA BAND record “ backwash”

Had a few pints with the Bob man there recently as he was home (went to see the wonderful SHAKER HYMN in Coughlans…THE SHAKER HYMN will play an instore with us on Sat 15th October , more on that closer to the time…mark it in the diaries!)…i know loads of ye ask for Bob so i just gave him a general “everyone is asking for you kid” …he is in flying form to be fair, loves the job, seems to be getting on really well there..he is enjoying life, there is another couple of Cork lads working with Warner as well so that’s nice for him. He told me but i’m still not really sure what he does but he is kept busy with organizing anniversary reissues for ye amongst a host of other jobs…seeing as we have a BEATLES announcement today…the Bobs and his team went to Abbey road studios for a night out … he was in studio 2 where all the Beatles records were cut..they had a half speed vinyl cutting demo with Miles Showell!! How feckin bad like…should have gone for the job meself! …living the dream a bit id say and no better boy…he sends his love yer way as well

So folks, Shane and  Adam also…just a quick note on the revolver announcement…best prices on the website are 195 for the vinyl box set and 142 for the cd boxset…if collecting from the siopa and we aren’t paying the shipping costs then best prices from the shop floor are 135 for the cd boxset and 188 for the vinyl box set…i was a little late getting on the beatles, i think i was 15 before i properly started listening to them and Revolver was my introduction…some introduction…hooked lined and sunk i was…Shane will have more on the formats etc later on..

Proper for the 23rd sept has two SANDY DENNY reissues on vinyl…long out of print debut solo album “ the north star grassman and the ravens” and second album “ sandy” via their own proper records label…the vinyl release for the new CASS MCCOMBS is the 23rd of sept also ( getting great reviews this is)…btw the latest KEVIN MORBY album is really good i think…there’s a new album by the CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE TRIO “ out here” on Mack Avenue records and last but certainly not least from Proper on the 23rd sept is the second album by SORCHA RICHARDSON “ smiling like an idiot” on cd and lp via Faction is “ shark eyes” from the album

Sony for the 23rd of Sept have a big reissue with ALICE IN CHAINS second album “ dirt”  being reissued on double black vinyl and bricks and mortar shops only double yellow vinyl

…fine record…has not been in the shop for 4 or 5 years id say when Music on Vinyl had a repress of it…Layne was a great singer but his life was cut way to short, where we once again unfortunately saw  the needle and the damage done…himself and Mark Lanegan were great pals but they got in some situations due to their drug habit…if it wasn’t so serious it would nearly be funny…here is “ down in a hole” from the album

(74) Alice In Chains – Down in a Hole (Official HD Video) – YouTube

Sony also have THE WEDDING PRESENT “ hit parade” 2lp and a cd…2022 marks the 30th Anniversary of the original Hit Parade single releases, where The Wedding Present released a limited edition 7” single every month throughout 1992 with each making the UK Top 30, equalling the then record of Most UK Top 30 Hits in a year set by Elvis. An original Gedge composition on the a-side of each single was accompanied by a cover version on the b-side encompassing a wide range of artists from Neil Young and The Go-Betweens to Isaac Hayes and Elton John.

Next one up on Because music and after 4 years is the third studio album by CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS “ REDCAR les adorables etoiles” on cd, 2lp blk or 2lp red. Brave in today’s world to release an album in your native tongue if not English, but CATQ has always done their own thing is cracking new tune from the album “ je te vois enfin” 

(74) Christine and the Queens – Je te vois enfin (Lyric Video) – YouTube

There is a brand new KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZZARD WIZZARD studio album “ omnium gatherum” and is on 2 lp or lucky dip colour 2lp…the colour ones fairly limited id say…there first album in 2022 and the first time the 6 band members got in a space together in over 2 years…they are calling it their jamming album…vinyl only im afraid, dont know why that is, dont agree with it, tis daft not releasing a CD, maybe twil be later in the year..tracks are long i wont link one!

UMC are doing represses of ABBA “ gold” as double gold vinyl or as a picture disc double…a bit on the pricey side again though, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are reimagining 25 years of BOND themes via Decca on cd or lp, there is a BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE b sides and rarities cd out on the 23rd Sept , a new CHARLES LLOYD on Bluenote ,,the second in his trios albums “ ocean” and there is a new KILLING JOKE EP with the original line up.

Last couple from Uni so for the 23rd sept are a brand new DR JOHN album…( well vinyl not till oct 14th) on Rounder records “ things happen that way” is “ sleeping dogs best left alone” 

The PATRICK KAVANAGH release is also on the 23rd on CD and LP, Originally released on Claddagh Records in 1964, the double album also features the only recording of the revered Irish poet reading his most celebrated poems. Now remastered and reimagined this new two-part album features the original recordings and Kavanagh’s poetry read by Bono, Hozier, Imelda May, Liam Neeson, Jessie Buckley, Aidan Gillen, Lisa McGee, Lisa Hannigan, President Michael D. Higgins, Evanna Lynch, Sharon Corr, Kathleen Watkins, Christy Moore, Rachael Blackmore and Aisling Bea set to a truly wonderful music composition.

The physical formats of this album include a booklet containing all the poetry one will hear on the album. The vinyl format of this release contains two unique vinyl sleeves. The first hosts a printed collage of sketches of all the celebrated readers around Patrick Kavanagh, with Kavanagh himself visible through the gold-foil cut-out square on the cover itself. The second vinyl sleeve is an exact replica of the original 1964 release.

I hope the newsletters aren’t becoming too long-winded folks, I sense they might be..i suppose we be trying to get the info to ye, trying to sell to ye as ye know is the truth of it but dont want to bore ye either….anyways for now.

Integral for the 23rd of sept has new albums by BETH ORTONEDITORSFKA TWIGSTIM BURGESS and VIEUX FARKA TOURE & KHRUANGBIN as well as the wonderful NEU boxsets.

Going to hand ye over to Shane now as he takes ye down the abbey road…bit buoyant kid id say after being a bit of a laughing stock to do four good ones on the bounce…yer back!!Sound, Ray, yeah, we’re back !!

Hey everyone, hope all is well with ye.
Massive one to mention first, as Ray said, THE BEATLES – Revolver is getting the special edition reissue treatment. Here’s a bit about it:

“This Special Edition of The Beatles’ REVOLVER features a new mix by Giles Martin and Sam Okell, the
original mono mix, a 4-track EP, 31 session takes and home demos, a 100-page book with a foreword
by Paul McCartney, an essay by Questlove, detailed track notes, photos and ephemera including
handwritten lyrics, tape boxes and extracts from Klaus Voormann’s graphic novel on the making of
the cover art. Half-speed-mastered 180g LPs + 7-inch vinyl EP in a 12.56” x 12.36” slipcase.

SUPER DELUXE VINYL [limited edition 4LP+7-inch EP + 100-page hardbound book in slipcase]

LP One: Revolver (New stereo mix)

LP Two: Sessions One

LP Three: Sessions Two

LP Four: Revolver (Original mono master)”

That’s for the 4 LP Super Deluxe version.
Classic album of course.It’s really hard to choose between their last 6 or 7 albums.I really like ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ even though it’s not technically an official album or wasn;t originally.
‘Revolver’ is top notch too though!
This will be out at the end of October. We will be getting it on 1 LP, 1 CD, 2 CD, 5 CD and the Super deluxe.

Next up is Irish legend JOHN SPILLANE’s latest release ‘In Another Light’. A live performance from Cork Opera House last November with Pauline Scanlon and the Concert Orchestra. With a range of his tracks spanning from the 80s to 2020.
John is an absolute top performer and songwriter and a sound fella too.
That’s coming in October. We have the CD for now but there will be vinyl too at a later date.

Also coming down the road, but a good way down it, is the new GORILLAZ album ‘Cracker Island’ out next February. Good band. I believe some of ye went to see them recently and they were great.
We’ll have the indies neon purple coloured vinyl of it.

Also coming out worth a mention, Irish post punky artist MERYL STREEK has a debut album ‘796’ coming out on November 4th. We’ll have it on green vinyl.
Here is ‘Death to the Landlord’ from it:

There’s a Cliff Richard Christmas record coming, UK Eurovision lad SAM RYDER is releasing his debut album ‘There’s Nothing But Space, Man!’ and VOICE OF THE BEEHIVE are reissuing ‘Let It Bee’.

Back to you Raymondo! Sound.

Back On The Horse, Limited CURE Reissue, New MUSE, ELAINE HOWLEY, Some Nice Box Sets And A CLASSIC Jazz Tone Poet Release

Hi everyone,

Hope all is well enough!

Back on the horse ( i have a few days off next week as well!!…be dead long enough)…thanks to  the dynamic duo ( or was that Batman and Robin)  for looking after the place…id be lost without the lads….stellar newsletter as well, ill have to watch my job..bringing hawking to a new level…no.. sound out lads…thanks for allowing me to forget the place for 9/10 days.

R,I.P Olivia Newton John in the past few days

Releases in the siopa for this Friday the 12th of August include…

Moving on then to releases for the 19th of August… MADONNA – ‘Finally Enough’ , NEIL YOUNG  ‘El Dorado’ , PANIC AT THE DISCO , REM – Chronic Town , DEMI LOVATO – Holy Fvck , LARRY YOUNG – ‘Unity’ and WAYNE SHORTER’s ‘Adam’s Apple’  , STEPS ‘The Platinum Collection’ , OASIS ‘Be Here Now’  , FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH  ‘Afterlife’ 

So main week for this week are the releases for the 26th August …the year is just flying….the summer has been iffy business wise but releases are iffy also…should bounce back in another 5 or 6 weeks and be fairly good for the end of the year hopefully anyway…;pricing aint gonna help retailers when things are quiet…the high 30s euro price tag for a coloured reissue is just too steep in my opinion and folks ain’t gonna pay it…your diehards of a band/artist might but it wont cross over and we will sell much less…its probably a bit different for the labels as they simply cannot get things pressed so for them , they can only sell so many anyway as they cant get more pressed for circa 8/9 months now…look tis a mess, but when things settle, i hope pricing will settle a bit also…Anti doing a few TOM WAITS coloured reissues and high 30s, early 40s price tags…anyway the 26th of August.

Universal for the 26th of August have the BLONDIE “ against all odds” cd and vinyl releases across 4 physical formats…3CD, 4LP, 8CD or the deluxe big boxset thingy…we are doing a special price on the boxset at 330 euro if interested…here is more on the releases

“Blondie mark a career milestone with the release of the first ever authorised and in depth archive in their history. This release features 124 tracks, 36 of which are previously unreleased. Remastered from the original analog tapes and cut at Abbey Road Studios, this expansive box set is available on four formats (Super Deluxe Collectors’ Edition, Deluxe 4LP, Deluxe 8CD and 3CD editions). Housed in a foil-wrapped carton, Against The Odds includes extensive liner notes by Erin Osmon, track by track commentary from Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Clem Burke, Jimmy Destri, Nigel Harrison, Frank Infante, and Gary Valentine, essays by producers Mike Chapman, Richard Gottehrer, and Ken Shipley, a 120-page illustrated discography, and hundreds of period photographs. 

This archive box set—the first band-authorised collection in their 50 year history—is a collective moment to celebrate their legacy and be immersed into Blondie’s genre-bending sonic universe, including their first six studio albums recorded for Chrysalis; Blondie, Plastic Letters, Parallel Lines, Eat To The Beat, Autoamerican, The Hunter, and in turn their catalogue of era-defining hits “Heart Of Glass,” “Atomic,” “Tide Is High,” “Sunday Girl,” “Rapture,” and “Call Me.” These six groundbreaking albums have been expanded to include over four dozen demos (including the group’s first-ever recording session), alternate versions, and studio outtakes, creating a near-complete document of Blondie’s studio sessions prior to their 1982 hiatus. 

Against The Odds has an unusual beginning; for nearly two decades, the bulk of Blondie’s audio and visual archive sat inside in Chris Stein’s unassuming barn just outside Woodstock, New York. One hundred reel-to-reel tapes, half a dozen cassettes, a few storage tubs crammed with records, bits of promotional flotsam, flyers, a stray Warhol print, and mirrored dressing room signage from four sold-out January 1980 nights at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. All of it lay in wait through twenty humid summers, twenty frigid winters”

UNIVERSAL also for the 26th of August has the vinyl release of the new KENDRICK album “ mr morale and the big steppers” via interscope.

Bastille have a new album on EMI on 2CD or limited vinyl.

Republic has the new MARCUS KING album but CD ONLY for now…LP will follow in a few months…its called “ young blood” and is produced by Dan Auerbach…King is one of the best blues musicians on the circuit at the moment…real talented…here is “ blood on the tracks” original from the new album

(44) Marcus King – Blood On The Tracks (Official Audio) – YouTube

VALERIE JUNE has an 8 track covers album out via Fantasy of her favourite songs…available on CD and indies only yellow lp…LP is expensive really, which is a shame…i told this before but sher its a good story and cos i enjoyed it so much im gonna tell it again…myself and the Bob man saw her perform in St Lukes a few years…we met her after…ahh she was lovely, bit of an earthy character…10 seconds into the conversation Valerie turns to Bob…”Wow, your hair is just fab”…ill tell it again im sure, it makes me chuckle. Here is Valerie’s cover of Mazzy StarrS “ FADE INTO YOU” good as Bobs hair

(44) Valerie June – Fade Into You – YouTube

Cargo for the 26th Aug has a few well worth a mention , firstly is Cork based ELAINE HOWLEY  with her debut solo album “ the distance between heart and mouth” …here is more about the album.

“Touch Sensitive Records proudly presents the Cork-based musician Elaine Howley’s debut solo album The Distance Between Heart and Mouth. The product of an audio diary kept on a 4 track cassette machine throughout 2019 and 2020, the album recreates the intimacy of a radio show filled with Howley’s favourite sounds, pallets, and textures; effortlessly joining the dots between pop and experimentation, summoning the kaleidoscopic world of Trish Keenan & Broadcast, the bruised lo-fi soul of Tirzah and the dubbed-out blues of Leslie Winer. Over nine patient, spontaneous self-recorded and produced tracks, Elaine Howley traces the outline of a small space that could be considered one of the longest journeys to be taken – The Distance Between Heart And Mouth.  As a member of Crevice, Howlbux and, perhaps most notably, psychedelic rock group The Altered Hours, Elaine Howley is renowned as a singular voice in the Irish underground.  The Distance Between Heart And Mouth. TRACKLIST: 1. Silent Talk  2. Autumn Speak  3. Archeological Longing  4. See Saw Seen  5. To The Test  6. Buried Way Out  7. Person Count  8. Song For Mary Black  9. SoSo  “

Here is “ silent talk” from the debut solo album

Cargo also has a reissue of SPACEMEN 3 “ playing with fire” 3rd album on indies yellow via space age recordings. GOATs “ world music” 10th anniversary reissue and remaster on hot pink vinyl as well as the very first three PULP albums reissued on vinyl via Fire records.

Integral for the 26th August has the brand new JULIA JACKLIN album “ pre pleasure” , new EZRA FURMAN and reissue by the BRAND NEW HEAVIES.

Here is a tune from the Julia album…some voice

(44) Julia Jacklin – Love, Try Not To Let Go (Official Video) – YouTube

Nearly forgot kid…a week off and the brain goes a little to mushy peas…going to hand ye to Shane now as he takes ye down the road with announcements etc..

Sound, Ray! No bother about us filling in for you on the hols, well deserved, and as you said life is short!
How’s it going everyone? Hope yere good. Nice bit of sun this week for listening to music outside in, enjoy it! Bit jealous of our dogs sunbathing out the back at the moment though!

Not a huge amount to mention this week compared to the last few weeks actually.

One to definitely mention is a class one, JOHN COLTRANE – Blue Train is getting a special Tone Poet Series reissue on 2 CD, 1 LP Mono and 2 LP Stereo. No doubt one of his best albums, this is a really well pressed reissue from the analog tapes. On the 2 LP and 2 CD, there’s an extra album of unreleased outtakes/alternate versions and a booklet. Bit pricey but the quality is very high.
That will be released next month. Oh and numbers are limited with it, so if interested probably best to order from the website link above as we might miss the email for a bit.

A couple releases (Tom Waits) were very limited and we didn’t get any, which is why there’s not many to mention this week.

Keeley, from where i can see does everything right in getting her image and profile out,  but man oh man can the songs back it up…i’m addicted to the new mini album the last week or so since it landed in the shop…( this is the mini album Keeley and her band will be promoting with the instore,  “ drawn to the flame” and it’s super, cd only for now…but there is also a 10” vinyl ep from last year “ brave warrior” in the shop). Fair commitment for her and the band to come to the shop and play for us ( they have a gig in the Crane later on Saturday night) so I hope the community will come out in support of it. Keeley does a great social media and seems to be really supportive of record shops…every little gain in this game is important for an upcoming artist and this band are ticking all the boxes…but most important the tunes stack up…here is “ shadows on the hill” form the super new mini album

Ye remember me banging on about THE MURDER CAPITAL this time three years ago when we were putting on an “ outstore” for their debut album release…this for me could be up there as well…i think it will be one we will be talking about in three years time. Really hope some of you will make it in on Saturday, it’s a bit later at 3.30 so take note of the time…3,30 pm Saturday the 9th. So KEELEY and her band ( four piece) will play a 30 minute set for us and sign copies of the new mini album cd or 10” ep or both! And have the chats as well…should be special. If you can’t make it in and want a record signed , buy from the site and let us know or just email us back and we will sort. As regards up coming artists and record shops, some get it and some unfortunately don’t,  we aren’t going to change their world obviously but we can help a tiny bit and every inch counts when you are trying to climb to the top…sometimes upcoming artists will say buy from our site if you want stock, it ain’t about the dollars folks, aint about that at all. 

Here’s a bit more on KEELEY and really hope to see some of ye on Saturday…myself and young Adam will be holding the fort…

“Dublin’s highly revered psychedelic dreampop quartet KEELEY release their first mini-album in the wake of two acclaimed EPs in 2021. 

“Picks up where the debut EP ‘Brave Warrior’ left off with a musical search for lost spirits, Keeley goes further and deeper and carries us into a musical dreamworld that reaches in and out all at once” ~ Fiachna Ó Braonáin (RTÉ Radio 1)

“If you could speak, what would you say? To bring you back, I’d give my life away. But nothing can undo what they did” ~ lyric from “Shadow On the Hills” 

Led by enigmatic front-woman, guitarist and songwriter Keeley Moss, this Irish outfit went from strength to strength last summer with the success of break-out single “The Glitter And The Glue” from their debut EP ‘Brave Warrior’. While seeming to come from nowhere, Keeley had actually been a key figure on the Irish music scene for some years previous with her band Session Motts before deciding to forge a path entirely on her own in 2020. With the help of skilled Dublin producer Alan Maguire, she began to craft songs that encompassed her encyclopedic knowledge and passion for music stretching back to early Pink Floyd, The Pretenders, The Smiths, Pet Shop Boys and the rich vein that is the dreampop canon of the late 80s and early 90s. It would also be the point at which she decided to base her songwriting exclusively around the murder of Inga-Maria Hauser, a case that had fascinated her for many years and a subject she had written extensively about in her blog The Keeley Chronicles

Determined to make her mark in Ireland she spent 2020 self-promoting to Irish media, gradually coming to the attention of national DJs and key music writers. Suddenly her songs “The Glitter And The Glue” and “Last Words” were on the national airwaves and her involvement with the Inga-Maria Hauser case was being picked up by the likes of The Belfast Telegraph and the Derry Post. In May 2021 a deal was struck with London label Dimple Discs, home to Irish compatriots Cathal Coughlan, The Undertones, Sack and Eileen Gogan. The release of the ‘Brave Warrior’ EP in June was the catalyst for even more national Irish radio support, but now the word on “The Glitter and the Glue” had crossed the Irish Sea, and plays on BBC 6Music were becoming common with support from Steve Lamacq and Radcliffe & Maconie. Regional BBC support in Northern Ireland and Wales followed, as did American play on SiriusXM, college radio and hundreds of global internet radio programmes. 

A second EP ‘Echo Everywhere‘ landed in November, supported by further excellent radio and press reactions. On the live front, the band (Keeley – guitar & vocals, Martin Fagan – bass, Marty Canavan – keyboards) had recently added acclaimed Dublin drummer Tim O’Donovan to their ranks. Following a livestream performance at the Dublin Quays Festival in August, the band followed up with sold-out shows at Whelan’s main room in Dublin in October and The Lexington in London in December. Come the new year, Keeley were nominated by Ireland’s Hot Press as one of their “Hot for 2022” acts, and the stage was set for the next chapter in a story driven by self-belief, determination and a lifestyle devoted exclusively to music and songwriting.   

Which brings us to “Drawn To The Flame”. A bittersweet title suggesting destiny and arrival, but also danger and ultimately, tragedy. Armed with seven new songs which showcase the maturity and breadth of KEELEY’s songwriting, this mini-album bristles with lush harmonies, muscular beats and inventive atmospherics, skipping gleefully across genres and further establishing Keeley Moss as one of Ireland’s most creative and visionary songwriters. As with previous songs, this set highlights Keeley’s ongoing fascination with the murder and short life of aforementioned teenage German backpacker Inga Maria-Hauser, who was brutally murdered in Northern Ireland in 1988 and whose case remains unsolved despite many promising leads pointing to the culprits. As an authority on the subject, Keeley has recently appeared in “Murder In The Badlands”, a moving BBC documentary that further explores Inga-Maria’s case. The album ends with a hidden track, the only known voice recording of Inga-Maria, a devoted artist and singer, which Keeley managed to procure from her family in Munich by way of a tribute. 

Keeley herself notes… “We feel it is our best, and purest, sonic statement yet. The point at which even darker depths are delved into, peeling back layers of the story’s shell to reveal just how close to the flame I came – and how close to the flame I remain.” 

See ye Saturday!

Hello everyone, hope yere all doing ok!
I’m playing catch up a bit on newsletter duties this week so won’t dawdle.

The major one of note coming soon this week is R.E.M.’s – Chronic Town EP. Their first EP I believe and it’s getting a nice reissue on both CD and picture disc collectible vinyl – August. Great band!

Next up is a very limited couple of releases. THE PRODIGY – Fat of the Land is getting a reissue on silver vinyl. Legendary album!
And there’s also a really limited 12 inch of ‘Firestarter’ from the album, remixed by Andy C. On silver vinyl that too. Fastest fingers first with those everyone, apparently they have sold out in lots of places online already. Both of those will arrive into the shop at the start of November.

At the end of August, there’s an interesting LOU REED release coming, ‘Words and Music 1965’.
On CD and pink vinyl, early demo/unreleased songs from Velvet Underground. Should be cool. We’ll have a small few of the pink vinyl.

Next up, THE DELINES are reissuing 3 of their albums ‘Sea Drift’, ‘The Imperial’ and ‘Colfax’. ‘Colfax’ hasn’t been available on vinyl for ages I believe. We like them behind and in front of the counter in the shop.

Also coming down the road, KENDRICK LAMARs new album is getting a vinyl release, we’ll be getting the TOP GUN: Maverick Soundtrack on white vinyl – enjoyable film 
The Goo Goo Dolls are releasing a new album, CD only for now. Also on CD only at the moment, Beyoncé‘s new album is coming.
NADA SURF’s ‘Let Go’ is getting a reissue, BOBBIE GENTRY ‘The Girl from Chickshaw County’ is on the way and indie band ALVVAYS have a new album coming soon.

That’s all from me this week, I think.

Back to you Ray bud!

Main week for this week is Friday July the 8th, going to start with Sony who have the reissue of the classic GEORGE MICHAEL album “ older” …it is still available as a 2lp black vinyl or deluxe limited edition boxset with 5cds, 3lps and a 12” by 12” 48 page book…fine album.

Sony also has the new album by Rae Morris “ rachel @ fairyland” on cd or lp or indies lp.

Warner for the 8th July have the NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE “ toast” album via reprise records, this is the shelved album from 2001 when Young felt the time wasn’t right to release it…comes a time i suppose, so tis out now, what i have heard i have liked,…available as CD and 2LP with an etching on the 4th side…here is “ standing in the light of love” from the album

Warner also have the new BELPHEGOR album “ the devils” on Nuclear blast and there is a host of NAZARETH CD and LP reissues.

Universal for the 8th of July have a brand new JAMES BAY album on EMI, his third album now “ leap” …there is a limited edition pink vinyl on the go here as well.

Did i tell ye lately this brexit thing is still a pain in the liathroidi, still and always will be a pain in the liathroidi, the courier companies impossible to communicate with, no talking allowed  is the big business model now as we all know well  …got 6 copies of be bop deluxe live one for rsd yesterday tuesday and UPS lad says its 67 euro for him to give me the little box in his hand…48 of it VAT which i can try claim back and 19 euro a fee…19 euro for the lad to take my 67 euro in a 30 second card transaction,,,carriage was 11 sterling for the 6 records…all in fees to get the records was 33 quid…carriage was always there but 19 quid for nothing…Partizan sent us some JUST MUSTARD promo bits , signed prints, key rings, badges,,,,freebies to give to customers…Fed ex hit us with an invoice for 14.29 euro for “ clearance administration charge vatable at 23%” this stuff would do your head in….complete small fry in the scheme of it i know, but still manages to do the head in…seems a crazy way to do it to my simple mind…with brexit we have to be charged Irish Vat when we import from the UK once it hits our shores ( the courier companies do it) we can then claim it back in our vat return ( pain in the liathroidi again to manage) but the couriers still charge an admin fee for the honour…it can be anywhere from 5 euro to 35 euro ( no rhyme or reason to it) averaging about 15 euro id say…one company ROM ships out to us once we get over 100 euro on the invoice so we have received invoices for 107 euro and have had fees of 20 plus euro on them…some companies use PVA, postponed vat accounting and it is easier but they still charge a “ multi line clearance fee” which at times has been 35 quid for maybe 20 records…surely theres a better way?…we buy lps and cds out of the UK…nothing else now…surely we could be greenlighted from a vat point of view by the irish government rather than pay and then claim back but get caught for fees for the wonder why i do be grumpy, probably just got a clearance invoice from a courier for free stuff we are giving to folks…pain in the liathroidi.

Anyways back to uni for the 8th July, UMC have some ELTON JOHN reissues on vinyl mainly, with the stereo version of “ regimental sgt zippo” , “ the one” and “ peachtree road”.

Proper also has a W.A.S.P best of the best 32 track double cd compilation album on Madfish.

Sound, Ray!

How’s it going everyone? Hope the summer is going nicely for ye.We’re lucky we haven’t got the crazy heat that a lot of europe is getting…touch wood.

Some nice ones to mention this week but nothing huge.

First up is a bit of a recent classic, from the indie explosion in the early to mid 00s (although, it’s 20 years old already!), THE LIBERTINES’ debut ‘Up the Bracket’ is getting an anniversary reissue which will be out in October. We will be getting 4 formats of it: CD, Std vinyl, red coloured vinyl (limited) and a deluxe box set with lots of stuff in it. Good band.

Before that, at the start of August, some guy called PAUL MCCARTNEY is reissuing his solo records ‘I/II/II’ in a set called ‘McCartney’. There’s CD or vinyl available of it.

Also in October, Irish lads KODALINE are releasing a live album, ‘Our Roots Run Deep’ (nice title)
We have a sweet promotion for it too. The first 10 pre-orders of the album on any format will get a bonus signed laminate with it. Formats are: Indies maroon coloured vinyl, cream coloured vinyl and CD. Here’s a little trailer for the album:

Another nice anniversary reissue coming soon is JETHRO TULL’s ‘Thick As A Brick’ which is 50 years old.
The original newspaper style cover booklet is re-done and looks pretty cool.

To confuse matters, a special CD/DVD/Book set of the album came out 10 years later, so that’s getting a 40th anniversary reissue. There’s a surround sound mix by Steven Wilson in that! We’ll have both anyway (in the link above)!

Also coming soon down the road CIGARETTES AFTER SEX are reissuing their debut album on clear vinyl in mid August. I think there’s another coloured variant of it coming too in November. Was popular in the ship when we had it but it’s been out of print for a good while now.

DROPKICK MURPHYS are releasing a new album too which sound interesting, featuring the lyrics of Woody Guthrie. It’s called ‘This Machine Still Kills Fascists’

Finally, there are two DEF LEPPARD reissues (Adrenalize and Euphoria) coming as well as a new DEMI LOVATO CD.

That’s all I think from me for this week. No video this week as we were up the walls a bit with RSD2.

Anyway, back to the gaffer! Cheers!

Thanks Shane!

Right so Integral for the 15th July have a reissue of BILLY NOMATES‘ self titled LP.
black midi will be releasing their brand new one ‘Hellfire’ and INTERPOL will have a new album out ”The Other Side of Make Believe‘.
Also from Integral that week, an ORBITAL remix compilation, a PAVEMENT reissue and the new one from WORKING MEN’S CLUB ‘Fear Fear’.

Sin about e for this week,
Thanks for listening as always,
Ray, Shane and Young Adam.

Nice few releases here and due into us still over the next few days,

Right so updates…i will get the worst over with…BILLY BRAGG RSD release has turned into a big problem im afraid…the label had hoped to get 2500 copies pressed but only got 500 in the end …so my 14 copies ordered turned into 2 copies received…i think 8 of ye good folks wishlisted the record…so most of ye will be disappointed…sorry….you have been warned, set alarms for early stun if you want to fight for that one…again sorry….so problems look like BILLY BRAGG, HUMAN LEAGUE and SANDIE SHAW ( I could well have missed a problem or three as tricky when a lot of the stock is not here yet) but that’s what i know for sure now. Also, the PAUL MCCARTNEY RSD record is going to be a problem too now, unfortunately.

Also, a few RSDs  slightly delayed and may not make Saturday but will be here early next week are DEACON BLUE and BE BOP DELUXE…may still make Saturday but only invoiced today so Friday maybe a stretch…Warner, Integral and  the rest of Sony did not land here yet but were invoiced a few days ago so should be ok ( never comfortable until they are in though, especially  in this post brexit world…laws,    what laws i say dear chap)

So Saturday 9 AM…ask us/me if you cant see something, or online then from Sunday at 7 pm also…hope to see some of ye then.

Right 1st July also sees the release of the new PAOLO NUTINI album via Warner on atlantic/eastwest records…the Scots 4th album now and a while since Caustic love…talented man…the new one is called “ last night in the bittersweet” and will be available as cd and lp…comes in over 70 minutes long and influenced by Krautrock …here is “ lose it” from the new album

Warner via BMG also for the 1st July have a cracking reissue of a brilliant debut album by a bunch of kids ( at the time) with “ 1977” by ASH on splattered vinyl…single after single kept coming from the record…cracking album.

The Orchard for this week  sees the release of Ghost Woman on Full Time Hobby, Blood Command on Hassle with 2 Coloured Vinyls to choose from and a From Autumn To Ashes repress on Splatter Vinyl.

Proper for the 1st July have a few nice bits and pieces…first up is a FLEET FOXES release “ a very lonely solstice” via ANTI records on CD, LP or indies only shops clear LP. It is a 13-track career spanning collection recorded in December 2020, at Brooklyn, NY’s St Ann & the Holy Trinity Church mainly just Robin. The recording was originally broadcast as a live- stream event on the winter solstice of 2020, just days after New York declared a state of emergency tightening restrictions again in response to increasing COVID-19 cases. Pecknold describes the set as “me by myself on the longest night of the year… honoring the loneliness of 2020 with a nylon string and some songs new and old.” Those of you who have seen Robin perform a song or two solo will know how good he is…here is “ im not my season” from the recording…its a beautiful recording, guitar , vocal, bit of strings and choral at times…beautiful.

Some biggies of interest to mention this week. Up first, the PIXIES are releasing a brand new album called ‘Doggerel’ (I hope Fontaines DC don’t sue them) on September 30th. A band I like, and great to see them consistently releasing albums now after being off the map for ages before. The last two were good, looking forward to hearing this now. We will have two coloured variants.

Second up, another legendary band, BLONDIE are releasing a nice compilation box set at the end of August, called ‘Against All Odds 1974-1982’. It will range from a 3 CD set up to a super deluxe 10LP with lots of other extras.

Third up is a class Irish reissue, the debut album from the excellent FIGHT LIKE APES. Out in September, it comes with a bonus 7 inch EP too and is great value. Brings back memories, a punky band I was in supported them in the mid 00s in Cyprus Avenue.

Also coming around the corner, a new album from modern post-punk band DRY CLEANING and a brand new one from BEN HARPER – Bloodline Maintenance (CD is July but LP is September).

Oh, another biggie that I nearly forgot, KASABIAN will have a brand new one too called ‘Alchemists Euphoria’ due out in August. Their 7th I think. Good band. We will be getting the indies orange vinyl of it but it will be limited!

Finally, coming soonish, ALICIA KEYS (mid July), WALTER TROUT‘s 30th studio album (mid August) and a 50th anniversary coloured reissue of FELA KUTI – Roforofo Fight also in August.

New SOCCER MOMMY album out via loma vista on the 24th june also “ sometimes forever” and is available as cd. Std lp or indies lp…i like this band…here is “ bones” from the new album

(343) Soccer Mommy – Bones (Official Music Video) – YouTube

Interscope have the vinyl releases of the new MACHINE GUN KELLY album “ mainstream sellout” , std or indies lp, BLUENOTE has CHARLES LLOYD “ TRIOS : CHAPEL” on cd and lp, VERVE have ELLA FITZGERALD at the hollywood bowl : the irving berlin songbook performed live on lp or cd.

Last couple from Uni for the 24th june are the 50th anniversary of MARVIN GAYEs “ whats going on” …this is the 2lp european version….this release has caused some controversy as there were/are 2 versions doing the rounds…an American version mastered by Kevin Gray and a european version ( the impression for a while was there was only the Kevin Gray master on the go)…from what i gather the  EU version is not the Kevin Grey touted version, although the source audio from the EU version is from Kevin Grey’s master, but cut on a different lacquer. I think thats the case with it. 

Last one from Universal for the 24th june is a deluxe edition of the grammy winning album for best newcomer by AROOJ AFTAB “ VULTURE PRINCE” …we have been asked countless times for this record in the last year so great to see a repress on Verve…first Pakistani to win a grammy…here is “ mohabbat” from the album

Going to hand ye over to Shane now as he takes ye on a walk further down the road…bring the wallets i suppose just in case like…

Sound, Ray!
Hey everyone! Hope ye’re all doing alright and enjoyed the long weekend just gone. We went to Drimoleague for a night camping. Was a bit soggy unfortunately but a bit of craic all the same.

Going to get stuck into the releases of interest coming soon.
First up, Mr. JACK WHITE is releasing his second album of the year towards the end of July, it’s called ‘Entering Heaven Alive’. All formats we’re getting will be limited. We’ll have the colourdy one as well! Check the link if interested.
The album from April ‘Fear of the Dawn’ is good, so I’m sure this will be worth a listen too.

Second up is another brand new release, this time from EDITORS called ‘EBM’. With the orange version of this it’s ‘fastest fingers first’ as we’ll only be getting a few. Here’s ‘Karma Climb’ from it:
It will be out in September.

3rd, friend of the shop, well, friend of all shops really is TIM BURGESS with his new album called ‘Typical Music’. He was some man for keeping people going on social media through the pandemic. That’s coming in September too.

Then also coming down the road: a new one by PANIC AT THE DISCO, a BEST OF by KEANE (wrote some great songs), new JESCA HOOP, new BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN , MOUNTAIN GOATS and a nice reissue from ELVIS COSTELLO.

That’s all from me this week I think.
Back to you Ray, cheers!

Thanks Shane!!

New One From JESSIE BUCKLEY And BERNARD BUTLER, The YEAH YEAH YEAHS Are Back, BOWIE, More Good Irish Releases And A Classic Rant From Ray!

Hi Everyone

Hope all is well out there.

The music community lost more than one last week…Andrew “ fletch” Fletcher passed on also, another relatively young man at just 60 years of age…one of the founding members of one of the biggest bands on the planet DEPECHE MODE…the band play(ed) a huge part in popular culture…those of you of a certain age may remember their teenage years around Cork with two tribes…the Modeies or the  cureheads…its not like that anymore sher its not, pity really, but the world keeps changing…i really liked both bands, and both bands have stood the test of time, Fletch would not have got the plaudits obviously that Mr Gahan and Mr Gore receive ( or Mr Wilder when he was there) but something tells me he was the glue that kept the band together….40 years at the top of the game, some going..Yes drummer ALAN WHITE passed away also last thursday…rest in peace both.

Just on RSD DROP 2 coming up on Saturday the 18th JUNE..a few little problems with stock…THE HUMAN LEAGUE release is very very tight on stock as is the SANDIE SHAW release…so far they are the only ones i know that we have problems with but ill keep ye posted next week and the week after. Just got word this one is cancelled:
Pucho and His Latin Soul Brothers – Super Freak


Right so releases for this Friday the 3rd of June include..


And for the 10th of June we have…

 KREATOR ,  LITTLE FEAT  , THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G  , ASIA  , RUFUS WAINWRIGHT , VANCE JOY , RICHARD ASHCROFT , ROLLING STONES – singles box 1963 to 1966 + licked live in NYC ROXY MUSIC  , NICK MULVEY , CHASE & STATUS , NENEH CHERRY , DOOBIE BROTHERS , BTS , MAX RICHTER , KISS  , ELTON JOHN , GEORGE EZRA  , WARDRUNA , DEPECHE MODE 12” singles boxset -“ Exciter”, KELLY LEE OWENS , SINEAD O BRIEN , the dream syndicate , SONIC YOUTH , Kula Shaker , Malcolm Middleton , THERAPY? – crooked timber , ANATHEMA , JOANNE SHAW TAYLOR , POKEY LAFARGE , BAD RELIGIONs “ process of belief” DAVID SYLVAIN “ sleepwalkers” cd, THE LIBERTINES “ what a waster” 7” and the NICK CAVE/WARREN ELLIS score “ la panthere des neiges” .

So the main week for this week is the 17th june..the day before RSD DROP 2…Warner have a nice few releases on the day…first up is, and more or less to the day since its arrival into the world 50 years ago, BOWIES ziggy stardust reissues on Parlophone…available on two formats, half speed remaster vinyl as well as a picture disc vinyl, Warner have the brand new album from FOALS “ life is yours” on CD, LP and an indies only white vinyl also…FOALS also reissuing “ antidotes” on splattered vinyl…here is “ wake me up” from the new record…bouncy tune

(327) Brad Mehldau – Tom Sawyer (Official Video) – YouTube

Last but not least from WARNER for the 17th June is the vinyl reissue of the CHRISTY MOORE collection…absolutely cracking tunes on this compilation, shortened from the 20 tracks on the CD to 15 to fit the LP…really good compilation.

Sorry i forgot to mention the SUGGS/WELLER 7” OOH DO U FINK U R on BMG…stock limited on this one so if interested mail back…only 3 or 4 left to sell….anyone for the last few choc ices there now.


A really nice one coming our way in the next week or two is the reissue by THE FRAMES of “ for the birds” on vinyl…a cracking good album, cracking. THE FRAMES stuff is hard to come by so delighted we will be getting some copies of this, a good few years ago Music On Vinyl had a reissue of Fitzcarraldo which we had stock of for a good while and Warner had a compilation “ longitude” a good while back now also. But nothing around on LP for ages so delighted this one is on the way. We will have about 20 copies and the price  I’m fairly sure is 25 euro…we dont have a link set up yet,   but if interested give us an aul email back and we will add your name to the list. Thanks very much to THE FRAMES people for being sound out in dealing with us!

Sony for the 17th June have the SUMMER OF SOUL vinyl releases, so there is a 2lp version as well as a limited coloured 1 lp version, Sony also have PRINCE “ the gold experience” cd reissue and lastly there is a new ALANIS MORISSETTE CD “ the other side of stillness” , i dont have a whole pile of info on this one but i think it is a meditation album.

Universal for the 17th of June have a nice few, starting us off via EMI is a record from JESSIE BUCKLEY & BERNARD BUTLER “ for all our days that tear our heart” …this sounds like a beautiful album from what i have heard, JESSIE seems to light up every room she goes into, everybody who works with her has nothing but great things to say including Mr Butler…Jessie a native of Killarney i think…here are the duo and friends on Jools

(330) Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler – Footnotes on the Map (Later with Jools Holland) – YouTube

EMI also has QUEEN “ THE PLATINUM COLLECTION” LTD 6LP Coloured boxset…first time on vinyl for this…CD is around a long time….its the 3 greatest hits compilations Queen had…3 great compilations as well, i include the third one in that, some cracking tunes there also…this one is limited out and as i write this we only have one copy of it left to sell….ill ask the rep if there is a chance of a few more but for now just one to sell. 

Uni have a new CD by SIGMA “ hope” on 3 beat and there is a lovely bluenote lp reissue of “ blues walk” by LOU DONALDSON.  This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is stereo, all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

VERVE have the next in their acoustic sound series with BILL EVANS TRIO 65 release, Verve’s Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging. Here is Israel from the album

(330) Israel – YouTube

Lastly Easy Eye Sounds have the new HANK WILLIAMS JR album “ rich white honky blues” on CD or LP.

The business here changed with Covid as a lot of businesses did im sure…we started selling a lot more online , well from where we were a lot more anyway, jan 2020 i think we were only sending about 10 orders a week…so it has improved a lot from there, but the amount of leakage involved is hard for a bricks and mortar traditionalist like mise to get used to…small shops businesses like ourselves would always traditionally have kept things tight, but the more online selling the more leaking money that goes on…and its a double edged sword so i am learning to park it for what it is…few examples…a lad in roscommon buys one record, we make 7 quid on it say, there’s a problem with it, it skips , creased , split whatever…lad wants a new one…this happens on shop floor , no cost involved…so doesn’t cost a thought…online though we have to get it back, costs us 6.50 to do that, we have to resend new copy , costs us 7.25 to do that ( courier and packaging) so our 7 quid profit is now 7 quid in the negative as well as time involved to sort it and we now have a record we need to try claim from the record company ( ball of work basically for a negative outcome, and the courier the only winner) …small example that but a regular enough one…overseas orders are hardly worthwhile…the courier will only insure 15 euro per kg outside of Ireland…sent a record to greece a few months ago…cost the shop 58 quid for the record, the courier lost it …got claim ( 14 weeks later) back of 15 euro!…negative of 43 quid…had a problem with a usa order, creased sleeves…gave him the records 5 of them for free in the end and we paid the postage also…negative of 130 quid…( getting them back and resending them would have cost more, so he got them free gratis, he could have know well what he was at, sher what can i do, park it, move on) had a problem with Stripe lately ( more detail in the future hopefully) cost the shop 300 quid, yep 300 quid…lot of records to be sold to get that back. This is not a poor me thing, im very aware that if we shut the website overnight our sales would fall 40 to maybe even 60% , we may struggle to survive…a lot of folk would use the site as a guide and buy in the shop so it is so necessary to have the site but it aint all wine and roses. When we started the site i think there was less than 1 in 4 Irish retailers online, when we got a revamp during covid it was still only at 30% …reason…its bloody a ball of work and for small shops to keep on top of it , you need to be constantly at it…we have a bit of a system now and it works okay but there is a lot of leakage involved, much more than when we were in store only, but flip side of the coin is that we have more sales also…the online game is skewed towards the big corporations because of whats involved…but if online you have to take the good with the not so good and park the leakage for what it is and try do your best with it ( 30 years of shop floor interactions with little leakage to 2 years of decent online trade with a lot of leakage, hard for an aul fella to adjust and park it) …right park this now i think, i know a few of ye enjoy when i do be giving out, hope you enjoyed that Lorraine!

Sidetrack city there sorry…THE ORCHARD for the 17th June sees the reissue of The Waterboys ‘An Appointment with Mr Yeats’, originally released in 2011. CD for now with Ltd. Green Vinyl to follow in December. They also have a 10th Anniversary Edition of Five Finger Death Punch ‘American Capitalist’ on Ltd. Gold Vinyl .

Proper for the 17th June have the new NICK CAVE release “ seven psalms” on lp only via bad seed ltd. Seven psalms or small sacred songs written during lockdown…here is a trailer for the release


THE ALARM reissue “ omega” on splattered vinyl, Ear music has ROBBEN FORD & PAUL PERSONNE “ lost in paris blues band” 

Lastly Wienerworld has RZA new album “ bobby digital vs RZA” on LP only

There is a new JOHN NEVILLE due for release on the 18th june also, we will hopefully have more info on that next week… last album is in stock in the shop now or here online also..

Going to hand ye over to Shane now as he runs through down the line stuff…

Sound, Ray!
Howdy everyone! Hope yere all well. A good few ‘coming soon’ ones today again, hope the wallets are surviving!

First up this week is an exciting irish release from KEELEY, ‘Drawn to the Flame’. It’s just on CD for now. 7 new tracks, coming out July 1st. Dream pop rocky sound. There was a bit of interest in the shop in their last EP. Here’s a track from that EP that they released around this time last year:

Next up is a big one, the YEAH YEAH YEAHS have just announced a brand new album called ‘Cool it Down’. Their first in nearly 10 years I think. We will have two colour variants, yellow and splatter, both are limited. Good band, Karen O is a great frontwoman.

Also coming soon, the BEASTIE BOYS are releasing a 4 LP expanded box set of ‘Check Your Head’ halfway through July, JAMES BAY is putting out a new album and there will be a deluxe coloured reissue by THE WALKMEN of ‘You and Me’.

Mr. PAUL WELLER is reissuing his album ’22 dreams’, also in July. I don’t know the album to be honest, must chat to Adam about it, I’m sure he’ll fill me in, he’s a Weller-head.

BETH ORTON has a brand new one coming in September ‘Weather Alive’, we will have a few formats of it.

And finally, there are reissues by ECHO AND THE BUNNYMENSUEDE and another one of Adam’s favs OCEAN COLOUR SCENE.
Oh and a compilation of 80s DANCE CLASSICS which has a good tracklist.

Here’s the lads’ latest video from Youtube.

I think that’s everything from me this week.

Back to you Ray, so, cheers!

RIP To An Icon, New LIAM GALLGHER And SUEDE, A BIGGIE Box Set, STONES Box Set, RSD Drop 2 Update And Another Good Irish Release

Hi all,

Hope all is well.

Only one place to start unfortunately this week.

Cork has lost an icon, in a musical sense apart from probably Rory , Cathal was at the top of the tree, hugely respected by his fans and his peers…a musical icon.

I was shocked and really saddened Monday when I heard of Cathal Coughlans untimely passing…it has hardly left me since, like it would with someone you know well ( i never even met him, had a bit of interaction on twitter here and there but never met him)…I hadn’t  a clue he was unwell. Never met the man but was a fan of the man…savage lyricist in both senses of the Cork word, sharp, intelligent, caustic even… some singer and composer…ah sher an awful loss. Second last musical project was Cathals solo album “ songs of co aklan” and its a fine record ( followed up with the TELEFIS project only released a few months ago…more quality)…came out in the middle of the shit show no instores or anything like that, but i really felt  Cathal would be the type of man who would say  “ yeah, no problem ill play a few songs for ye”…id say there was no bullshit with him, id say he didn’t suffer plonkers gladly, there seemed to be an innate kindness to him…an amazing man i would suggest…listened to a long interview last night he done with Swimmers Jackson only a year ago…( you will find it on the twitter machine thingy under Swimmers Jackson) not a peep he was unwell, not a peep of feeling sorry for himself…not a peep of it…intelligent, thoughtful , all about the muse interview…quality tip to toe.

The MICRODISNEY show in Cypress Avenue in feb 2019 holds an even more special place now ( i spent a little bit of time that night with a great Cork record seller Richard Meeney who was very unwell himself at the time, he managed to last a good part of the gig even though his health was really against him…but he told he me he wouldn’t miss Cathal for the world…ah lads rest in peace) …condolences to Cathals family and friends…terrible in peace Cathal.

Heres a taste of his genius

Right so releases for this friday the 27th of May include…

Cheers Ray! How’s it going everyone, hope ye’re all well. Lots of releases once again this week to get through. It’s great to have so much choice and things to look forward to in music, keeps us all going!
Can be a bit mean on the wallet though!

First up is the 40th anniversary edition of MJ’s ‘Thriller’. Out in November on 2 CD and 2 LP. Biggest selling album of all time? He was some talent. Sad about the other stuff though.

Second is definitely one to look forward to, Paolo Nutini is releasing a brand new album in July, called ‘Last Night in the Bittersweet’. We like him in the shop. Interesting artist and this one sounds interesting:

“‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’ is a 70-minute epic that spans the distance from classic rock to post-punk to hypnotic Krautrock, in the process proving its value as his deepest, most varied, most accomplished, and ultimately most rewarding set so far. The insistent Motorik rhythms of new single ‘Lose It’ brings shades of early ‘70s German bands like Can and Neu!, and are a product of Paolo writing increasingly on bass guitar. At the other end of the spectrum, ‘Through The Echoes’ is a timeless classic in the lineage of Ben E. King and Otis Redding, with Nutini’s vocal delivery reminding us why he got snapped up by Atlantic in the first place.”

Third is another favourite of the shop’s ASH. They are reissuing their debut 1977 on cool splattered vinyl (see above), also in July. Great band!

And in September, DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE have a brand new one, ‘Asphalt Meadows’, we will have the indies pink version of that!

Also coming around the corner YUNGBLUD‘s new album, a new one from THE DREAM SYNDICATE, YARD ACT are reissuing their ‘Dark Days EP’ on limited silver vinyl and even more limited cassette,
a MADNESS reissue, anniversary reissue from SHAKESPEARS SISTER and finally a new release from FAYE WEBSTER coming in October.

Adam and Ray are back with another vidjo!
