Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (180 gram pressing with poster & prints) ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene! There's so much here that so many other records are missing – razor-sharp instrumentation, a great sense of pacing, and most importantly, a biting wit that always keeps the whole thing from ever lapsing into any sort of over-serious cliches! Yet unlike their LA contemporaries, the group were also never ones to just lay into the jokes – as the political commentary here is especially pointed, and nearly every single song is a blistering attack on late 70s California mores and national obsessions. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Kill The Poor", "Forward To Death", "Let's Lynch The Landlord", "Your Emotions", "Holiday In Cambodia", "California Uber Alles", and "Stealing People's Mail" – plus a killer cover of "Viva Las Vegas".

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
Rowdy, vintage R&B-fueled rockers from The Bama Lamas – a contemporary Chicago band with a retro sound, akin to late 50s though mid 60s ragers from The Burnette Brothers to Screamin' Jay Hawkins and lots in between – and they make it sound fresh and vital! A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more. Recorded in mono – glorious mono! LP, Vinyl record album

Apple/EMI, 1966. Sealed ... $299.99
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". LP, Vinyl record album

Big StarLive In Memphis ... CD
Omnivore, 1994. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
The mid 90s Big Star revival – captured live at the New Daisy Theatre, on Beale Street – and the only professionally captured Big Star live performance of any era! This era of Big Star is led by group founders Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens, backed by Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow of avowed Big Star devotees The Posies, and the younger guns more than capably help to bring fresh, exciting life to the catalog and covers. It's anything but a nostalgia trip! These songs were as timeless and relevant in 1994 as they were 2 decades earlier AND 2 decades later – the band's reputation hasn't grown so great over the years by accident – they're really that great! The set includes most of band's most beloved tunes and a cool crop of covers, including "In The Street", "Don't Lie To Me", "Way Out West", "Jesus Christ", "Baby Strange", "September Gurls", Thank You Friends", "For You", "I Am The Cosmos", "The Ballad Of El Goodo", "Til The End Of The Day", "When My Baby's Beside Me and more.

Jackie De ShannonTo Be Free ... LP
Imperial, 1970. Sealed Gatefold ... $6.99
An interesting little record – with kind of a crossover California soul feel overall – recorded with Rene Hall arrangements that echo a few rootsy modes at times, mixed in with fuller orchestrations that step a bit back towards Jackie's earlier years on Imperial – a surprisingly nice blend, with a fresh sound for the 70s. The album features a number of great tracks co-written with Jimmy Holiday – a fellow Imperial talent – and titles include "Mediterranean Sky", "Sooner Or Later", "What Was Your Day Like", "Livin On The Easy Side", "Brighton Hill", and "When Morning Comes Again".

Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven of which were recorded on a two-track reel-to-reel stereo recorder – and it's exciting, pummeling, incendiary stuff!

Die ParteiLa Freiheit Des Geistes ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
The album's got a classical-styled cover image, but the work is plenty modern within – some great electronic grooves from the best years of the German new wave! Die Partei are a duo we'd rank right up there with Pyrolator and Der Plan – easily as playful as both of those great acts, and graced with a talent for taking the simplest of analogue electric sounds, and really making them sound fresh and groovy! There's no darkness at all in the music – just these cool rhythmic passages that mix beats and keyboards in a way that's very different from US or UK material of the time – never overblown, never too moody – just simple, tuneful, and still wonderful after all these years. Titles include "Ostafrika", "Guten Morgen In Koln", "Rote Schuhe", "Allerheiligen", "Nord Sud Fahrt", "Wo Sind Sie", and "Austauschprogramm". CD

Durutti ColumnLC (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Factory/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Pure and lovely sounds from the early days of Durutti Column – music from a time when guitarist Vini Reilly's conception was quite fresh, and deeply personal – so much so, his music really stood out amidst the darker sounds of his post-punk generation! As with the first Durutti Column album on Factory Records, this one often features Reilly's electric guitar overdubbed in cool ways – spare, but flowing – almost as if he's a Pat Metheny for the UK underground – but serving up short songs that are never overindulgent. But unlike the first record, Reilly also sings a bit – with this light, haunting style that's surprisingly compelling – one of those rare cases where a thin voice can often carry a lot of power – especially with spare instrumentation like this. Titles include the sublime "Missing Boy" – plus "Sketch For Dawn", "Jacqueline", "Messidor", "The Act Committed", "Detail For Paul", and "Portrait For Frazer". LP, Vinyl record album

Trouble In Mind, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
Moody synth soundscapes from Espectrostatic – aka Alex Cuervo, of punk & garage groups The Hex Dispensers, Blacktop, This Damn Town & Feast of Snakes. This 13-song suite of instrumentals carries on the tradition of synth prog pioneers and 70s & 80s horror soundtracks steeped in ominous electronics by John Carpenter, Goblin and Tangerine Dream. It works strongly with those influences, but has a fresh, compelling urgency all it's own. Timeless stuff! Includes "Smokeface Appears", "Doomed Lovers In A Gathering Storm", "The Haunted Doll Factory", "The Procession", "Phantom Swarm", "The Infernal Elevator", "Please Be Careful As You Exit" and more.

Panama Limited Jug BandIndian Summer (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $15.99
A really wonderful second set from Panama Limited – a group who've dropped the "Jug Band" from their name, and come across here with a very different sound! The album's still got lots of acoustic roots elements in the mix, but the overall conception is very strongly rooted in blues, then filtered through a more experimental generation – ala Captain Beefheart! It's clear that the group had been digging the Cap themselves, but they're not just copping his style here – as the album has a more pointed, tuneful approach – with vocals augmented by new group member Anne Matthews, who really helps them find a fresh groove. Way more trippy than before – thanks to some very evocative lyrics – and titles include "Moonshine", "Set Me Free", "Woman I Love", "Darkness Brings", "Laughing", and "Eastern Man". CD features bonus tracks – "Round & Round" and "Rotting Wooden In A White Collars Grave". CD

Granadilla (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
An unusual folksy sextet from early 70s England – a group who look like a bunch of hippies on the cover, but who come across with a really ancient feel on record! The music has lots of echoes of older English, Scottish, and Irish folk – and when the group harmonize, they sound especially like some Celtic acts – although as with the best UK folk of the period, there's also a different sort of darkness – a strange undercurrent that really keeps things contemporary and fresh. Instrumentation includes harmonium, autoharp, and mandolin – and titles include "Ushers Well", "Lord Franklin", "Glimpse Of Heaven", "Lyke Wake Dirge", "Daddy Fox", and "Crazy Man Michael". CD

Guy SkornikPour Pauwels ... CD
EMI/Lion, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
Lost legendary work from Guy Skornik – a heady set from early 70s France, and proof that there's a hell of a lot of greatness to discover on that scene! The album's got a blend of psych fuzz and deeper ideas that's not that far from Serge Gainsbourg – although the overall presentation is more cerebral, and influenced by the ideas of GI Gurdjieff, carried out by Skornik in this sublime blend of acoustic elements and larger orchestrations directed by jazzman Ivan Jullien! Like some of the best French work of this time, the album has a wonderful balance between the personal and professional – the intimate and the ambitious – which really makes things exciting and fresh, and very different than anything you might have been digging on this side of the Atlantic at the time. Titles include "Realite", "L'Ile De Paques", "Fulcanni", "Je Vois Ce Que Je Crois", "Quest Ce Que Le Dream", and "Je Ne Sais Pas Je Ne Sais Plus Rien". CD

Decca (UK), 1966. Used 2CD ... $9.99
There's nobody like The Small Faces at their best – as you'll hear from the group's killer 1966 album on Decca! The style here is tight, right, and fully-formed straight from the start – easily one of the best UK 60s hybrids of American influences from R&B, garage rock, and early psych – sorted out perfectly by a quartet of lads who really know what they're doing. And the album's maybe even more focused than the group's later album on Immediate – as here, The Small Faces are all business, and the right kind of gritty – just fantastic stuff that's fresh and exciting even today! Titles include "Shake", "Come On Children", "You Better Believe It", "IT's Too Late", "One Night Stand", "Sorry She's Mine", "Sha La La Lee", and "Own Up Time". 2CD version is filled with great stuff – the full mono mix of the album, plus bonus tracks that include "Patterns", "Grow Your Own", "What's A Matter Baby", and "I've Got Mine" – and then a full bonus CD of 14 more tracks – all strange mixes and alternate versions of album tracks!

Seminal sounds from the French underground of the early 80s – music from the group Vox Populi, plus the related Pacific 231 – both with a dark edge that rivals the best coming out of the north of England during the post-punk years! Like Cabaret Voltaire or 23 Skidoo, these guys really have a strong sense of the darker uses of analogue electronics – an understanding that's clearly informed by musique concrete, but turned towards simpler, starker ideas as well – often with the kind of chilling edge that we love in Throbbing Gristle at their best. These guys are a lot less posturing than TG, but have a similar sense of power – especially in the low-end range of the sonic spectrum – and this excellent compilation by Cut Chemist tells the full story of the group and their rare releases, some of which only ever appeared on cassette. Titles include "Chair Morte", "Mass Male", "Radio Moscou/Satyriasis", "Funk Off", "Alternative Fresh", "Bala Mala", "Mind", and "Chabman".

Digatone (Austria), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $29.99
Weird and wild sounds from the Austrian scene of the late 50s and early 60s – not the usual proto-rockers you might find on compilations of this nature – but some especially unusual music that's unlike anything else we've heard before! There's definitely some of the exotic and rockish touches promised in the title – but many cuts use them in very different ways – with the instruments coming in at points you might not expect, and echoey production abstracting all the elements – almost shaking them up so that they come out in a very fresh way! A few tunes are straight, but many are very much in the farther reaches of oddball and exotic – and titles include "Biggy's Little Car" by Johnny & The Shamrocks', "Olymp" by The Austrian Evergreens, "Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie" by Hannes Patek & The Vienna Beatles, "Gran Chaco" by The Tramps, "Geisterstunden Cha Cha" by Uzzi & Bill Grah's Olympia Band, "Nachts In Chicago" by The Hubbubs, and "Inka City 60" by Die 4 Bambis.

VariousSpirit Of Akasha – Celebrating Morning Of The Earth ... CD
Warner (Australia), 2014. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A new batch of music put together in the spirit of the legendary Morning Of The Earth movie – that famous surf film from Australia that really drew new cosmic connections between mankind, the water, and the music! The original soundtrack for that film is often listed as one of the best Australian rock records ever – and this new collection really follows suit, by combining the older trippy inspirations with a range of fresh voices from both sides of the Pacific – not just Australian performers, but some great American artists as well. There's a very timeless feel to the record – a vibe that could put it anywhere between the space of the 70s and the 21st Century – and some of the older artists nestle in nicely next to younger talents – in a really well-directed, cohesive-sounding record. Titles include "Unchained" by Tom Curren, "Drifting On A Daydream" by Grouplove, "To Be Young" by Andrew Kidman & The Windy Hills, "Gravity" by Lee Ann Curren, "The Weatherman" by Angus Stone, "The Pier" by Dirty Three, "We Love Our Hole" by Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo Gang, "Great Divine" by Xavier Rudd, "Wavves" by Jack River, "Before Your Very Eyes" by Atoms For Peace, and "In My Moondreams" by Brian Wilson.

Apple/EMI, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". LP, Vinyl record album

New BedheadWhatFunLifeWas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1994. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album from Bedhead – a 1994 record that helped usher in something of a quiet revolution in 90s indie rock – paving the way for lusher, moodier and slower soundscapes, soon be dubbed slowcore! Bedhead is as much a breath of fresh air a couple decades later, delivering a timeless, moody sound that takes some cues from the vibe of the Velvet Underground at their mellowest, and more recent trailblazers like Spaceman 3 – but ultimately deliver their own distinctive, and now oft-imitated sound. Includes "Liferaft", "Haywire", "Bedside Table", "The Unpredictable", "Landlord", "Crushing", "Unfinished", "Powder", "Foaming Love", "To The Ground", "Living Well" and "Wind Down".

New ColoursColours ... LP
Dot, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best American psych albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear, waviness on the bottom half, a cutout notch, a small split on the top seam, and some stains on the back.)

New Deep PurpleShades Of Deep Purple (UK pressing) ... LP
Parlophone (UK), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The birth of a legend, and easily one of the heaviest records to hit the mainstream in the late 60s! The album's got a sinister quality that you can hear on the first few notes – a low-end, rumbling approach that brings in a lot more fuzzy bass than other groups of the time had ever thought to use – all topped with some of the most wickedly edgey guitar put on record to date, and undercut by drums that are almost verging on funk at times! Basslines set the tone for most of the tunes in the set – creating a bottom-heavy groove that would be copped many times in years to come, but which still sounds tremendously fresh here in the original. Titles include "Mandrake Root", "I'm So Glad", "One More Rainy Day", "Help", "Love Help Me", "And The Address", and "Hey Joe". LP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing on Odeon.)

New DevoSomething For Everybody ... CD
Warner, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Devolution is real! The title's a bit pandering, but that's part of the manifesto this time, and the record's sure to please any fans of Devo's older work – even if it might seem like some sort of easy attempt to recreate the sound of 1981! All the classic elements are in place here – quirky rhythms, jerky vocals, and all the offbeat Devo sounds you might expect – all perhaps not as fresh as they were back in the day, but still remarkably present and untouched, given the passage of time! Titles include "Fresh", "What We Do", "Please Baby Please", "Mind Games"," Human Rocket", and "Step Up". CD
