LP, Vinyl record album

A batch of late recordings by proto rock shackshacker Hasil Adkins – and one of the sweetest vinyl releases yet on Nero's Neptune – who are proving to be one more important labels out there championing obscure, rural guitar heroes! Hasil strived to top Elvis in the late 50s and early 60s with an inimitable style of primitivist rock, but he actually ended up inspiring thousands of garage rockers, punks and rockabillies instead, thanks to ramshackle home recordings and wild-eyed lyricism. He was still making some wild music later in life, but the later stuff is also oddly sweet. Near the end, Hasil found love, and these recordings were inspired by just that – and it includes a 24-page color illustration booklet by Amy Krueger – who loved Hasil back, and inspired these songs. It's quite faithful in sound and style to his killer early recordings – but he ain't aiming to start dance crazes about chickens anymore! If you dig any of his earlier work, we can't recommend this one highly enough! Titles include "Got A Girl In Minnesota", "Endlessly", "I'm Lonely Tonight Little Amy", "Evening Shadow Road", "Play Pretty", "I Dreamt About Amy Last Night", "Bacon & Eggs" and "How Much I Love You".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mississippi, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
A timeless treasure from Dead Moon – a record that could have been made as far back as the late 70s scene in New York, or the mid 80s in the UK, or even in the recent American underground – but which stands as one of the key primal offering from this 90s Portland trio! The music wraps ... LP, Vinyl record album
Panic Sentry
Mississippi, 2014. New Copy
A wonderfully weird mix of acoustic guitar, vocals, and a lot of echo – used in ways that almost make the record feel like a folksy version of Suicide! Not that the themes and tones are as strong as that legendary group – but Dragging An Ox definitely share a similar love of space and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mississippi, 2014. New Copy
A second dose of solo weirdness from Peter Buck – whose best known, of course, as guitarist and co-founder of REM – but he's been a lot of cool and interesting stuff with the Minus Five, The Baseball Project and more in the post REM years – and we admire the heck of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trash & Burn
Mississippi, 2000. New Copy (reissue)
Dead Moon's first effort in the new millenium, but a set that's every bit as brilliant as their classic sets from the last century – and put together with a punky, no-nonsense energy that's instantly timeless too! These guys could be flatmates of the Swell Maps, a Chicago band from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mississippi, Late 70s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold
Great girl-based punk from the Portland scene of the late 70s – an overlooked quartet who really sound tremendous here in a massive double-length set of tracks! The music is stark and spare – and has a quality that almost makes us feel like we've found a pile of lost Rough Trade ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nero's Neptune, 1978. New Copy
Pere Ubu captured in their early prime – here in a long-lost live show that's finally reaching the light of day! The group are brilliant right from the very first note – crackling with all that rawness that's always made their earliest releases some of the most striking from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nero's Neptune, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Strange, tripped out avant soundscapes from early 70s Austria! Billowy bits of ghostly vocals are the connective tissue of this bit of weirdness – some of it strangely playful, some crowded and conversation, others bursting from the quiet to jarring effect. 10 tracks on 2 sides, they have ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shove, Late 80s. New Copy (reissue)
Pure brilliance from Pussy Galore – a record that follows up their first album beautifully, and with an equally raw sound overall! Jon Spencer's guitar rasps out with lots of messed-up bluesy tones, mixed with the Royal Trux-y screams of Neil Hagerty and Julia Cafritz – all in this mad ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Wild rockers from the dark side of the moon – very cool early tracks that often use odd studio techniques or weird instrumentation alongside straighter rocking sounds! The approach is best summed up by the legendary Joe Meek – who clocks in on two tracks here – and the collection ... LP, Vinyl record album
