Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (180 gram pressing with poster & prints) ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – super-heavy vinyl!)

A great little album of jangly pop tunes, and one that makes us recall our favorite moments of the C86 generation! These guys know how to write great little songs which unfold like pretty little flowers – not threatening, but always very pleasant, and very nicely produced. Tracks include "Sugar & Promises", "Sunday Morning", "Chocolates", "Angel On A Trampoline", and "Photograph". CD

The Aluminum Group's debut – Wonder Boy – is offered here with a nice "plus" in a batch of bonus tracks that expands the whole thing to a 21 track set of sweet jangle pop! The record recalls some of our favorite 80s pop moments – like Prefab Sprout or early Everything But The Girl – but the band give the songs a nice modern twist with lots of sparkling production techniques that make the whole thing nice and fresh. Tracks include "Tripping Over Boxes", "Chocolates", "Pretty Mouth & Green My Eyes", "Baby", "That Fossil You Call Your Lover", and "Byzantium". CD

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... LP
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 22.99
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". LP, Vinyl record album

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. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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

BedheadWhatFunLifeWas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1994. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
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".

ColoursColours ... LP
Dot, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
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 ring & edge wear, a partially split top seam, and some light staining on the back.)

DeathSpiritual Mental Physical – Original Reel-To-Reel Demo Recordings 1974-1976 ... LP
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! 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! A worthy addition to Death revival campaign that began with Drag City's essential release of their For The Whole World To See album. Get it! Includes "Views", "The Masks", "Change", "World Of Tomorrow", "The Storm Within", "Dannis On The Motor City Drums" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 2 – Scratch (remastered) ... CD
Real World, 1978. Used ... $6.99
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". CD

Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
The Marketts take to wheels here – making the move to hot rod themes that so many other surf instrumental groups were doing at the time – yet also finding their own unique groove in the process! The Marketts always had more of an overall studio sound than some of the more live rock instrumental acts of the time – but here they really turn that quality to their advantage, by using great Bones Howe production to bring out all the most unusual qualities of their instrumental lineup – fresh sax notes, oddball guitar phrasing, and lots of extra twists and turns to keep things interesting. Titles include "Woody Wagon", "Limbo Buggy", "Cobra", "Night Capades", "No Wheels", "Sting Ray", "Cha Cha Buggy", "Twice Pipes", "Bucket Seats", and "Makin Rubber". CD

PlainsongIn Search Of Amelia Earhart ... LP
Elektra, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $13.99
An overlooked gem from early 70s Elektra – a wonderfully warm, wonderfully solid set of rootsy rock from this group headed by Ian Matthews! The set moves past some of Matthews' earlier efforts – a bit tighter at times, yet still far from any country rock cliches at all – definitely done at a time when this mixing of modes was still a very fresh concept for musicians like Ian, who were more than willing to find a lot of paths of their own. Some of the headier moments really make great use of the darker guitar corners of Andy Roberts – who works in subtle, but great ways – and the set also features a nice mix of acoustic and electric elements, served up sparely, and recorded in a really great way. Titles include "Yo Yo Man", "Louise", "Call The Tune", "Raider", "Side Roads", "I'll Fly Away", and "For The Second Time". LP, Vinyl record album

ShantiShanti ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
A pretty hip blend of Indian music and more conventional rock instrumentation – and a surprisingly overlooked record for the time! These guys are less in the funky sitar mode than artists like Ananda Shankar, but do use tabla and sarod in really great ways – to augment long-spun rock tracks that have more conventional lyrics, but which often step aside to allow plenty of space for the instruments to take over! Rhythms are very fresh – especially with the use of tabla and other Indian percussion – and the set was put together by the old Pacific Jazz head Richard Bock, with a style that's kind of a 70s evolution of some of his 60s projects on World Pacific. Titles include "Innocence", "We Want To Be Free", "Good Inside", "Shanti", "Lord I'm Comin Round", and "Out Of Nowhere". 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

The second album from The Stone Poneys, but it's a set that definitely lives up to its title – a mature, well-crafted batch of tracks that should certainly stay fresh years after the group's demise! There's a darker, more sophisticated sound than on the group's debut – less straighter folk influences, and more of a mix of complicated country and late 60s adult vocals – held perfectly by Linda Ronstadt's lead, but wrapped up nicely with a bit of a harmony sound at times. Titles include the hit "Different Drum", plus "Evergreen (parts 1 & 2)", "December Dream", "Song About The Rain", "Autumn Afternoon", and "Toys Of Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Vox Populi/Pacific 231Funk Off – Cut Chemist Presents Vox Populi ... CD
A Stable Sound, Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
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". Also features bonus tracks "Track 38 (parts 1 & 2)", "Funk Off (alt)", and "Bala Mala (alt)". CD
