Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a seminal bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s. With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. Ok, maybe we're going out on a limb – but this record has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock albums of all time. Includes the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree" – plus the unreleased remix of "Cheree".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Arguably one of the greatest German albums of the early 70s prog era – the stunning debut of Faust, and a record beyond compare!

Factory/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
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!

A wonderful departure for Kevin Ayers – an album that's a lot lighter and more whimsical than his original fame with Soft Machine!

Drag City, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A ambient synth private press gem from the early 80s by Matthew Young – a surprisingly moody and chilling DIY effort – in which Young plays EMS and Roland synthesizers, manipulates tape recordings, and brings in more pedestrian bits of piano and guitar, which somehow just make it even ...

Elektra, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
The fiery debut of the Stooges! It isn't quite the out-there masterpiece that Fun House would be, and it's not quite as aurally blistering as Raw Power (we might be able to blame producer John Cale for this) but it's still one of the most powerful rock records of the era! Iggy & the boys ... LP, Vinyl record album

Drag City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The legendary album from Mayo Thompson – pared down with more of an outsider folk rock vibe after the freaky psych of the first couple Red Krayola – and ultimately just as trailblazing!

Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down ... LP, Vinyl record album

Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark ...
