A really dreamy bit of sunshine pop from The Critters – a wonderful group who do an excellent job of mixing sweet harmonies with pop-psych instrumentation – yet all in a way that's totally sweet, and very very catchy too! The record's got a very groovy feel overall – thanks to ... read moreCD
Crazy psyche era wierdness from Cromagnon – the band name and album title may reference prehistory, but this stuff is actually way ahead of it's time – if we didn't see the date on this thing, we'd have sworn it to be from the art damaged post punk early 80s! The group is credited to ... read moreCD

Cybotron ... CD Dual Planet/Clear Light Of Jupiter (Australia), 1976. New Copy (reissue)...
Cybotron's self-titled record from 1976 – and it's a remarkably prescient set of experimental synth rock instrumentals! It's a bit akin the work of German pioneers like Neu!

Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene!

Great live work – and the kind of hard-edged fuzzy punk that made Dead Moon a legend right from the start! There's an excellent gritty vibe to the record that maybe even tops the group's studio work of the time – not due to poor recording, but to the way the band really focus their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... read moreCD
