Just Sold Out!
Fantastic work from The Fates – an all-female group from the UK post-punk scene of the early 80s – with members who previously worked in The Fall and Nico's Blue Orchids! The record's got this very cool acid folk sort of feel – one that's somewhere between The Wicker Man and some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A surprising charmer from Bryan Ferry – his second solo album away from Roxy Music, and somehow even more focused than the first! The groove here is still very much in a Roxy mode, but tighter, leaner, and with more of a focus on Ferry's captivating vocals. And although a few tracks on the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first full length for The Five Americans – a great set of mid 60s heartland rock by a group that could deliver raucous garagey nuggets, sweeter harmonies, and jangly pop tunes – with equal excellence! The group vocals are fantastic, and it's especially impressive that they could ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear and partial seam splitting.)

A great move in a fresh direction for the Flaming Groovies – a set that has the group working with producer Dave Edmunds, and hitting this sweet power pop sort of sound!

A new wave crossover classic from The Flying Lizards – one of the quirkiest groups of their era!

Lost pop psychedelia from the Canadian scene – with groovy arrangements that recall Nilsson, Donovan and the sunshine glory of the Association – plus some of the more driving efforts of groups like Love! Most of the tunes are as catchy as all get out – with swirling organs, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty rough and rugged set of rock tracks – performed by a trio who were all prisoners at London's legendary Borstal! The title makes you think this might be some sort of Clash-type record, but the date belies the difference – and the overall approach is kind of in the Rolling ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One hit wonders – but oh what a hit! Friend & Lover's "Reach Out Of The Darkness" is a really unique little tune that brings together folksy vocals and funky rhythms – a solid jammer that brushed off the cobwebs of the aging folk scene of the 60s, and sprung into the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record that some might call the last truly great Peter Gabriel album – and a key cap to his excellent initial solo run! The album's got a deeper feel than before – slightly richer colors, more spiritual themes, and arguably more of a sense of majesty – almost an echo of some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The debut of the hugely influential Galaxie 500 – taking Velvets learned quiet drama and more jagged and terse influences from Joy Division and maybe a little early Jesus & Mary Chain, making them their own in a wonderful way – developing a sound that would establish long careers ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Moody ambient synth explorations from M Geddes Gengras!
