UltravoxHa Ha Ha ... LP
Island (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Early punk rock work from Ultravox – a record that's a lot sharper-edged than some of the group's later, more electronic pop! The guitars are very much upfront in the mix here – and although some tracks show a nascent love of synth, it's often mixed in with noisier, more driving sounds that are very much the best spirit of the British underground, circa 1977! And while it might be a stretch to call this a strictly punk rock record, it does stand very nicely next to some of the best mainstream punk releases from the same generation – and in a way, the stylistic complications of the set almost make it more appealing over the years – a bit of a label-less effort that still sounds plenty unique! Titles include "Rockwork", "The Frozen Ones", "Fear In The Western World", "The Man Who Dies Every Day", "Distant Smile", and "Hiroshima Mon Amour". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original UK pressing, including the printed inner sleeve and insert. Cover has light wear.)

UltravoxSystems Of Romance ... LP
Island, 1978. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A pivotal album in the career of Ultravox – one that has the group shifting from their rougher roots, into the sweeter, more synth-styled sounds that became their lasting legacy on modern music! Gone is the quirkiness of the first few records, but in its place is one of the best (and first) efforts to refine earlier experiments with electronics into a tighter, more pop-styled mode – one that's aided strongly here by the production efforts of Conny Plank, whose work in the electric prog years of the German scene really help give this record a real sense of depth! Titles include "Slow Motion", "I Can't Stay Long", "Someone Else's Clothes", "Blue Light", "Quiet Men", "Dislocation", "Maximum Acceleration", and "Just For A Moment". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Antilles. Cover has some flaking on one corner.)

✨✧ UltravoxUltravox ... LP
Island, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great first album from Ultravox – recorded in the mid 70s, produced by Brian Eno, and more of a punk rock record than most of their other work! The style here is really great – often driving and very guitar-based – with short, quirky tunes that remind us a bit of Eno's own rock work of the early 70s – and like those records, this one lies in a similar space between bigger glam and emerging punk. John Foxx is certainly at the height of his powers here – and nicely without cliche – and his fluttering vocals bring a sense of drama to the tunes without going too far. Titles include "Saturday Night In The City Of The Dead", "Wide Boys", "Dangerous Rhythm", "The Lonely Hunter", "My Sex", "The Wild The Beautiful & The Damned", "Life At Rainbow's End", and "Slip Away".

VariousGary Crowley's Punk & New Wave – Rare Punk Gems & New Wave Nuggets 1977 to 1982 (3CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of rare punk nuggets from the glory days of the UK scene – put together by DJ Gary Crowley, who runs a specialist show on British radio – and served up here in a book-style package that's overflowing with detailed notes, images of the original singles, and other information as well! The collection goes way way past the usual "punk classics" package – partly because Crowley's knowledge of the music and record collection is so enormous – and partly because he's got a nicely expansive view of the generation, one that's open to all the amazing styles that were exploding at the time! Make no mistake, the music here is all punk – no post-punk, Brit pop, or experimental tracks – and the whole thing's a searing 77-track romp, with titles that include "Inside Out" by The Stiffs, "Charles" by The Skids, "Howard Hughes" by The Tights, "Start Again" by The Form, "Everyday Everyday" by Really 3rds, "Wild Dub" by Generation X, "She's Too Clever For Me" by TPI, "You Gotta Know Girl" by Bee Bee Cee, "All About You" by Scars, "When The Tanks Roll Over Poland Again" by Automatics, "Young Savage" by Ultravox, "Getting Nowhere Fast" by Girls At Our Best, "Soldier Soldier" by Spizzenergi, "Go Ahead" by Bobalouis, "Barbarellas" by The Photos, "Kids Just Wanna Dance" by Fast Cars, "This Is Your Life" by Glaxo Babies, "It's The New Thing" by The Fall, "I Hate School" by Suburban Studs, and lots lots more!

VariousTo The Outside Of Everything – A Story Of UK Post-Punk 1977 to 1981 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $39.99
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

✨✧ Mateo TorcinovichOutside The Lines – Lost Photographs Of Punk & New Wave's Most Iconic Albums (hardcover) ... Book
Octopus Books (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool book – one that features lots of other material from famous photo shoots that ended up on punk/new wave album covers – but which didn't make the grade at the time! In other words, the book is filled with photographs that are slightly similar to famous ones – a range of different David Bowie poses for the cover of Heroes, early Pretenders or Specials in a variety of poses that didn't make their debut albums, Elvis Costello leaning differently in a range of shots for This Year's Model, the black and white Ramones standing in different groupings for their first album cover, and Lydia Lunch shifting around in bed for the first cover of Teenage Jesus & The Jerks. Each section presents the original album cover, with information on the record and design – then offers some very cool alternate material too. Includes album shoots for Blondie, Ultravox, Echo & The Bunnymen, Japan, Bow Wow Wow, Plasmatics, Iggy Pop, Bauhaus, Joe Jackson, The Cure, and many others – and book is hardcover, full color, and 217 pages.
