System 3 (with download)
HoZac, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)
Very moody sounds from Vector Command – a San Francisco duo who grew out of the legendary Crime – but who sound completely different to that group on this record! The sound is highly electronic, and in the deeper reaches of the dark wave spectrum – with a few tunes that hit a ... LP, Vinyl record album
HoZac, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Raw and buzzing Aussie punk from Perth's Cheap Nasties! The notion of punk rock as a definable style or any kind of exacted sound was still really in an early stage worldwide as early is this incendiary record was recorded in 1977, and being from a city that's as remote as Perth in some ways ... LP, Vinyl record album
Craft, 1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2CD
A really big selection of rare material by REM – all recorded for the BBC in the UK, with a presentation that makes the whole thing way more than just a batch of live remakes! Even in the days when most other TV was just having artists lip synch to their hits, the BBC was allowing bands to ... CD
Lion, Late 60s. New Copy
A group who definitely live up to their name – given that their recordings are so obscure, they were lost souls from the very start! Yet there's also a genius here that should have made them huge – an inherent tunefulness that clearly shows a love of The Beatles, Hollies, and a handful ... CD
Moving Pictures
Gronland (Germany), 1993. New Copy
Holger Czukay works here with many of his frequent musical partners – including Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebeziet, and Michael Karoli – but the album actually feels a bit more like his then-recent collaborations with David Sylvian – more concerned with subtle shifts in sound and space ... CD
Radio Wave Surfer
Virgin/Gronland (Germany), 1986. New Copy
Holger Czukay works here completely live – either in the Can studio on side one, or live in concert on side two – but always with the sonic complexity that we love on some of his more production-heavy projects! There's maybe more of a sense of songform here throughout – lyrics ... CD
Craft, 1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 8CD & DVD
A really big selection of rare material by REM – all recorded for the BBC in the UK, with a presentation that makes the whole thing way more than just a batch of live remakes! Even in the days when most other TV was just having artists lip synch to their hits, the BBC was allowing bands to ... CD
Craft, 1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2CD
A really big selection of rare material by REM – all recorded for the BBC in the UK, with a presentation that makes the whole thing way more than just a batch of live remakes! Even in the days when most other TV was just having artists lip synch to their hits, the BBC was allowing bands to ... CD
Lion, 1975. New Copy
A very groovy record from a very unique band – a homegrown set by an obscure Pennsylvania combo from the 70s – a group who were equally schooled in jazz fusion and progressive rock! Probe 10 are a rock group at their core, but they've also drank heavily from the brew of 70s Mahavishnu ... CD
Island, 1988. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Essential late 80s thrash from one the genres linchpin bands! State Of Euphoria draws the short straw when it comes to critical recognition of the band's 80s output, thanks in no small part to the fact that it's the full length follow up to Among The Living. It's hard to live up to the legacy of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music For Parties
Mute, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
A great electro classic from the earliest years of synth pop – served up here by a British group who set the scene for a whole generation! Silicon Teens never had the success of Human League or some of their contemporaries, but they definitely set the scene for that generation – by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1970s. New Copy 2CD
Peter Ivers's entire output for Warner Brothers in the mid 70s – including the original LPs Terminal Love & Peter Ivers, plus the Nirvana Peter compilation, which didn't appear until the mid 80s and STILL sounded ahead of its time – in a complete 2CD set! Peter has a distinctive ... CD
Reunion
Fantasy/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy
The last proper LP by San Francisco psych rock trailblazers Country Joe & The Fish – and the only album since late 60s with the classic early line-up back together! It's good stuff too, recorded for Fantasy with an unpretentious ear for country rock and unfussy folk-blues-rock hybrid ... CD
Ovation/Lion, 1970. New Copy
An amazing little record – easily one of the coolest albums ever on the legendary Ovation label – and a set that has the small imprint almost hitting the heights of their Chicago neighbor Cadet Records! The core sounds here are from the folksy duo of Chuck Hollins and Dave Starr – ... CD
Musea/Lion, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A wicked collection of French prog and fusion from the start of the 70s – all with a jazzy or folky vibe that shows just how wonderfully warm the French scene was at the time – and how it could be very different than similar music coming from Germany, England, or Italy during the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
Continental/Groovie/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Massively heavy sounds from A Bolha – a Brazilian group who were previously known as The Bubbles, and backed up Gal Costa during the Tropicalia years – but who work here in a fuzzy, bassy groove that's totally great – definitely an heir to the headier sounds of the UK scene at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
McKenna Mendelson Blues
Pacemaker Entertainment/Lion, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Late 60s work from Michael McKenna and Joe Mendleson – working here in a punchy, hard charging and fiery bluesy rock mode for the McKenna Mendelson Blues set! The group was fairly short lived, and otherwise known as Mainline – but this set puts the bluesy tendencies right out front, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Galaxies (180 2LP gram pressing) (with bonus tracks)
SFP/Lion, 1974. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Totally wonderful sounds from Laurance Vanay (aka Jacqueline Thibault) – an album that's heavy on keyboard sounds throughout – including these really moody Hammond organ lines that are handled in a style that's a lot closer to work on Fender Rhodes! The album's neither jazz nor prog ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heaven's Gonna Be A Blast
Lion, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Heaven might be a blast, but The Wilson McKinley are having a plenty good time on earth, too – really honing their craft for this obscure album of spirit-filled rock from the Seattle scene! The album's got the same gentle message of faith as the group's previous records, but also has the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic/Lion, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A hard rock trio with a hell of a sound – heard here on their one and only album from the 70s – a surprising major label debut on Epic Records, with top-shelf production from Rick Derringer! The album's got a searing burn right from the start – quite a heady brew for this young ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wapassou
Lion, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning little record from Wappasou – a French group who might be dubbed prog, but who work in much more organic territory overall! The tracks are long and stretched out, but never in a jamming way – and instead seem to flow magically from these core organ lines and acoustic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Evening Colours (with bonus tracks)
CAM/Lion, 1976. New Copy
Amazing music from Laurance Vanay – actually a recording name for Jacqueline Thibault, a hell of a great keyboardist but an artist the label thought would be better off billed as a man! The sound here is halfway between the spacey experiments of Brian Eno and Cluster, and some of the more ... CD
Galaxies (with bonus tracks)
SFP/Lion, 1974. New Copy Gatefold
Totally wonderful sounds from Laurance Vanay (aka Jacqueline Thibault) – an album that's heavy on keyboard sounds throughout – including these really moody Hammond organ lines that are handled in a style that's a lot closer to work on Fender Rhodes! The album's neither jazz nor prog ... CD
Lion, 1969. New Copy 2 CDs
Pretty fuzzy stuff – and a great bit of rare psych from this hard-working group of the New York scene at the end of the 60s! Odyssey have a sound that still carries elements of a few years before – swirling organ lines, garagey guitars, and up-front vocals that sometimes have a ... CD
Tomorrow Come Someday (CD & DVD)
Acme/Lion, 1970. New Copy CD & DVD
A mix of moody psychedelic folk and stripped down sunshine pop from Peter Howell and lyricist John Ferdinando – part soundtrack to a late 60s short film, with plus a handful of tunes not from the film – a nice mix of acoustic guitar and vocal melodies made trippier by flute and an ... CD
Lion, 1974. New Copy 2CD
One of those amazing obscure records that seems to come out of nowhere – sounding nothing like most of the mainstream work of the time, with a power that might have shaped the world of music for years to come – if the album hadn't been issued in a tiny pressing of only 60 copies! There' ... CD
Mr Oil Man (with bonus tracks)
Columbia/Lion, 1971. New Copy
The one-and-only early 70s album by Thunder Bay, Ontario psych heavies Jarvis Street Revue – rumbling rhythms and searing guitars – plus horns, wild vocals and trippy effects! The group have songs that seek rugged, natural living and environmental justice – but the music is ... CD
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy
A heady brew of rare electronic tracks – and a package that's every bit as wonderful as the first Cold Waves volume! Like that set, this one really digs deep in the post-punk electronic underground – and features a lot of tracks that are appearing here on vinyl – either because ... CD
No Record
Lion, 1968. New Copy
Mad music from the Nihilist Spasm Band – a group who really live up to their name from the very first moments of the record! The set begins with "Destroy The Nations" – a track that's meaner, nastier, and more mindbending than anything you'll ever hear from any of the wildest ... CD
Lion, Mid 60s. New Copy
A treasure trove of rare mid 60s garage rock from the state of Michigan – the complete anthology of local legends The Bossmen! MI was soon to become a breeding ground for some of the most revolutionary rock of the 60s – and while The Bossmen aren't best remembered rockers of the region ... CD
Viene
Lion, 1972. New Copy Gatefold
A Chilean group with a really wonderful sound – one that mixes familiar folksy guitar and flute with some larger string arrangements – in a style that's quite sublime, and which echoes strongly with the British acid folk generation! Lyrics are all in Spanish, but there's a timeless ... CD
Fictions
RCA/Lion, 1967. New Copy
One of the most striking groups we've heard from the Chilean scene of the late 60s – a quartet who have the groovy garagey sound of their contemporaries, but also manage a darker style overall! The lyrics are in English throughout – something the band always insisted on – but ... CD
Light In The Attic/Lion, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderful snapshot of the late 60s/early 70s underground rock scene in Vancouver! The original album was put together as a benefit for the Cool Aid House – a shelter for homeless youth in Vancouver, and no doubt a haven for hippie culture at the time. The album was and is a vital ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sandrose
Polydor/Lion, 1972. New Copy
Dynamic jazz rock from the French scene of the 70s – combo with a strong penchant for stretching out strongly on organ and guitar – but one that also has a few more sensitive, folksy moments as well! The tracks shift nicely between longer numbers and shorter ones – the shorter ... CD
Alice Through The Looking Glass
Agincourt/Lion, 1969. New Copy
Trippy psychedelic folk tunes from Peter Howell & John Ferdinando – music for the Ditchling Players' production of Lewis Carroll's Alice Through The Looking Glass from 1969 – plus additionally material that didn't end up in the play! Overall, an evocative mix of traditional folky ... CD
Nobody Knows The Heaven
Lion, 1974. New Copy
A glam folk rock album from mid 70s France – the only album by the Beautiful Losers – a record feels like the most restrained and acoustic based moments on glam era Bowie and Bolan efforts – sung in English and with big chords and big vocals but done mostly with just voice and ... CD
GangGreen/Lion, Mid 80s. New Copy
A lost treasure from the mid 80s Chicago rock scene – the self-titled, self-released first record from Green – with ultra catchy power pop melodies and an excitability that's as infectious as anything that came out of the Chi and other midwestern cities at the time! Green has both a ... CD
Allied/Lion, 1968. New Copy
Dreamy psychedelic folk pop from The Folklords – an obscure Canadian group with delicate male & female harmonies, but a catchy and less arch and wispy vibe than many of the more famous acts of the time! The secret might the harder hitting drums underneath the tunes that make the album ... CD
Lion, 1969. New Copy
A beautiful bit of folk-psyche from the late 60s UK scene – recorded for Polydor in 1969, but never issued at the time – now finally getting its first exposure to the world at large! The group have a really easygoing approach – blending fuzzy electric and softer acoustic guitars, ... CD
Neon Pearl
Acme Gramophone/Lion, 1967. New Copy
Laidback psychedelia from this hip British trio – a group that was something of a placeholder in between Peter Dunton's work in The Flies and Please – but which are plenty darn great on their own! Most of the tunes here have a style that's spare and melodic amidst the fuzz – a ... CD
Acme Gramophone/Lion (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An incredibly ambitious record – despite the fact that it was recorded in a tiny home studio! Ithaca are basically the same group who recorded the Agincourt album a few years before – and like that one, this set is awash in some of the best elements from bigger progressive groups of ... CD
Lion, 1971. New Copy
Hard grooving, heavily grooving South American rock from Miguel Y El Comite (Miguel & The Committee) from the early 70s – led by Miguel Livichich, who made waves a bit earlier with El Syndikato! The percussion drives the sound pretty well, but the vocals are nicely out front in the mix, ... CD
HoZac, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A pretty incredible, heretofore unreleased blast of mid 70s glam inspired proto punk from Cranberra, Australia's Baby Grande – with the crunchy riffs and raucous rhythms of some of the rawest bands of their kind anywhere on the globe, an ear for hooks that rivals the catchiest glam rockers, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Some of the weirdest underground rock material you'll ever hope to hear – self-produced, self-released material by Jerry Solomon – who's definitely one of the true outsiders of his scene! The approach here is a bit like that taken by Brute Force on his classic late 60s album – in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Past The 20th Century
Modern Harmonic, Early 70s. New Copy
The title might be a bit reversed – because there's hardly anything 21st Century at all about this music – and at some level, it almost feels as if Jerry Solomon is going back in time – at least within the parameters of his own life! The songs often have this weird, almost child-l ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bunker/Now Again, 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the darkest albums of the Krautrock scene in the 70s – an album that was actually recorded in a WWII-era bunker – where the duo were free to open up their instruments, jam for a very long time, and play with the sorts of effects and techniques you might know from bigger groups of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch & Go, 1987. New Copy (reissue)
Perhaps the definitive Big Black LP – the searing, shrapnel-inflected, jackhammer noise rock masterpiece from Steve Albini, Santiago Durango, Dave Riley and Roland – a drum machine that just so happens to be one of the most influential postpunk drummers of the 1980s! Big Black's most ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy
A key lost chapter of the ultra-hip early 70s Warner Brothers rock scene – lost recordings by Jack Nitzsche, a key figure from the same scene as Van Dyke Parks, Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, and other legendary figures. Nitzsche first emerged in the 60s as kind of a Phil Spector-like wunderkind ... CD
Television Themes
Acid Jazz (UK), 2018. New Copy
A fantastic little album from the great Matt Berry – quite different than some of his other records, but in a really great way! Berry pays homage to some of the greatest songs from the world of British TV – fab themes from the 60s and 70s, served up here with funky jazz instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cameo/Lion, 1966. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)
The west coast had The Seeds, and the east coast had The Deep – a group known only for this one album, but a key garage psyche group nonetheless! This record's a gem through and through – oddly (almost mistakenly) issued on the mostly-pop Cameo label in the mid 60s, but recorded with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
