Arguably the most perfect record ever from New Order – a stunning second full length set that has the group emerging from the turgid depths of the early post-Ian Curtis years, and before the schmaltzy pop of the John Hughes generation! The electronics are wonderful – definitely a few generations ahead of their time, especially in the way they realize all the north England experimentation of the time, but bring it into more tuneful territory – yet never without losing its edge. The group produced the record themselves, and managed to hold onto lots of the best lessons learned from Martin Hannett – and there's a tightness and economy to the songwriting that holds up beautifully over the years. Titles include "Ultraviolence", "The Village", "We All Stand", "Your Silent Face", and the lovely "Leave Me Alone". (Super-heavy pressing – better than the original!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A definite hard attack from Dust – a set that really lives up to its Frank Frazetta cover image at the best moments – but also has some surprising acoustic elements, too!

Great big Dee-troit rawk, like no other group of madmen could have ever created!

Dead Man
Hookah/Numero, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A rare slab of underground hard rock from Josefus – circa 1970, and a good half decade ahead of its time!

Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The collected work of a mighty trippy group from the Indian scene – a psychedelic combo who worked in the 70s, but who had the same sort of edge you'd hear from the American and British scenes of the late 60s!
