I Used To Be Pretty
Yep Roc, 2019. New Copy 2LP
The most legendary Flesh Eaters line-up – Chris D, Dave Alvin, John Doe, Bill Bateman, Steve Berlin, and DJ Bonebrake – back with a full scale reunion for the first time in decades! Now as much as ever, The Flesh Eaters are a vessel for Chris D's smart and serious lit quality punk ... LP, Vinyl record album
I Used To Be Pretty
Yep Roc, 2019. New Copy

Oldays (Japan), 1967. New Copy
Fantastic work from The Remo Four – a 60s Liverpool group who were always in the shadow of The Beatles – but always had a groove that was very much their own! The style on this material is very mod, with plenty of influences from American soul music – maybe a bit like Georgie ... CD
Oldays (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Jaunty pop from the 60s Italian scene – sung by a singer with a voice that's lively on the swingers, and just the right pitch on the mellower numbers! Backings are relatively full – there's a larger orchestra pictured on the back cover – but as with so much Euro pop of the period ... CD
Disques Du Crepuscule/Numero, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
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 Belgian outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mustang/Now Sounds (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Tremendous work from the great Bobby Fuller – not the early Texas tapes that have recently been the stuff of much interest on the market – but instead the well-crafted singles he cut in Los Angeles – working at the Mustang label with pop maestro Bob Keane! These tunes are still ... CD
Calm Before (mono)
Sundazed, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The one-and-only album by The Rising Storm – a rare gem with a reputation so strong, the frenzy over the few rare original copies out there has been anything but calm in collector circles over the years! What makes the record so great is how seamlessly this super young band – who were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1965. New Copy
The first full album from the great Fred Neil – recorded for Elektra Records in the years before his underground fame on Capitol – and with a sound that's maybe a bit more bluesy overall, but in a very cool way! Fred's songwriting strengths are very much at play here – as almost ... CD
Reprise/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy
Overlooked genius from Noel Harrison – best known as son of actor Rex Harrison, but presented here in a flurry of excellent LA recordings from the late 60s! Noel's clearly working in a style that's influenced by Fred Neil, Tim Buckley, Leonard Cohen, and some of the other more thoughtful ... CD
Pyramid/Mental Experience (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe one of the spookiest 70s records to come from the inspiration of JRR Tolkien – but that's what you'd expect from a record that's named after the Nazgul! The sounds here are much deeper and darker than other Tolkien tribute records of the period – four long tracks listed with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Rhino, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The seminal Gram Parsons solo debut, and arguably his most consistant post-Burritos album. GP is pretty much the record that put the country in country rock – with a sharp steel guitar cry throughout, an unpretentious proud/poor delivery, and those sweet harmonies with Emmylou Harris. The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vol 3 – A Childs Guide To Good & Evil (mono)
Reprise/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The continuing genius of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group who are certainly as experimental as their name would imply, but who can also come across with some warmer Sunshine Pop touches too! And it's that which makes the group so wonderful – the blend of freak and ... LP, Vinyl record album
West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Volume 2 (mono)
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
The amazing second album from this ultra-cool group – a set that's even weirder and wilder than their debut! The trio are maybe one of the few who really live up to the farthest expectations of the psych generation – as they're really open to let their minds fly in their choice of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Now
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy
A folk funk masterpiece from Korea – sung with breathy brilliance by female singer Kim Jung Mi, and featuring some great fuzzy backgrounds from guitarist Shin Jung Hyun! Although not in English, the record has a very similar feel to some of the hippest British female work of the same period ... CD
Project 3/Out-Sider (Spain), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Sublime soft psych from Rain – a warm and wonderful set originally issued on Project 3 Records at the start of the 70s! Like other work on the label, there's a nicely mellow feel to some of the cuts here – not as all-out dreamy as Free Design, but definitely a different quality than ... LP, Vinyl record album
So Far (white vinyl pressing)
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A great document of all this famous harmony trio/quartet were able to achieve during their first few years – a masterful reworking of vocal group modes from earlier rock and soul styles, taken forward towards the 70s with a spirit that's still as powerful today as it was back at the time! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ralph (UK), 1980. New Copy 2 CDs
A genius moment for the Residents – a record in which they not only claim to go "commercial", by playing some tuneful songs throughout – but one in which they also claim that most pop music is the same as contemporary commercials – which means that all the songs here are ... CD
Ralph (UK), 1979. New Copy 2 CDs
Seminal sounds from The Residents – a record that's purportedly inspired by the ceremonial music of the Eskimo – but it's very a much a Residents album, and one that follows there own absurdist adventuresome impulses! There's often this cold, drifting wave of sound in the background ... CD
Atco/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy
A full collection of Atlantic Records material by Jesse Ed Davis – a real music industry insider whose guitar work graced countless albums by superstars during the late 60s and early 70s, but whose work on his own is sometimes overlooked! The set features both Jesse's self-titled and Ululu ... CD
Honey Moon (colored vinyl)
Light In The Attic, 1975/2019. New Copy (pic cover)
Haruomi Hosono's lightly tropical, breezy Japanese soft rock jam "Honey Moon" from 1975 on one side – with an endearingly respectful cover by Mac DeMarco on the other! Much beloved for offbeat electronics, Hosono had a great way with (slightly more) conventionally tuneful pop, too, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Tiger Bay (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from the Wilde Flowers – a group who were an undeniable precursor to Soft Machine and Caravan, and who also were one of the first to explore some of the farther reaches that would soon explode in the worlds of British prog and psych! The group never issued a full album at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD
A fantastic entry in the Close To The Noise Floor series – one that looks at early American experiments with electronics – but from the DIY generation that was unlocking access to technology that had previously been in the hands of bigger label artists and the academic electronic scene! ... CD
Sire/Run Out Groove, 1993. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The first and last major label effort for Wax Trax juggernauts Revolting Cocks – carrying on with the dawn of the 90s core line-up of Al Jourgensen, Paul Barker, Chris Connelly and Bill Rieflin, plus the always eclectic extended guest roster of RevCo records, for their biggest sounding album ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music For Films
EG/Astralwerks, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A compilation LP of sorts – though at the time of its release most of this material had not been heard in this form! The album's more or less part of the "Ambient" series Eno had started that year with Music For Airports – and it's presented with similarly simple, elegant ... LP, Vinyl record album
Alfa/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Tremendous work from this groundbreaking electro pop trio – a group who seem to compress all the best electric energy on both sides of the planet at the time – creating a leaner, catchier take on some of the hippest German modes, mixing them with their own quirky energy, and paving the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
An electronic pop masterpiece – and the first moment of international exposure for the mighty Yellow Magic Orchestra! Before this set, the trio of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono, and Yukihiro Takahashi had already been making plenty of waves on the Japanese music scene – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mute, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
Can singles? Seems like a very strange thing, given that the group that kicked off the prog generation were noted for their extended album jams – but the format actually works surprisingly well, and actually lets you focus in even more on their genius! These tracks deliver a short, compact ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kapp/Jackpot, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
The incredible second album from Silver Apples – even more mad, more trippy, and more space rock than the first! The tunes are all awash in fuzziness – mad guitars, distorted vocals, and rough electronics coming into play with a bit of banjo and some stark, stiff percussion that makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Manticore (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 4CD
A quartet of classics by PFM – an Italian prog act of the 70s, and one of the few to challenge the international reputation of British groups like Yes or Emerson Lake & Palmer – so much so, the latter group actually issued these albums on their own Manticore label! Like ELP, PFM ... CD
Canaxis
Spoon/Gronland (Germany), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic early project from Holger Czukay – an early solo set, done during a time when Can were just getting started – and at a level that's years ahead of its time! Czukay uses lots of tapes and sound samples with his own basslines – crafting this pan-global landscape of ... LP, Vinyl record album
3 X 4 (2018 Black Friday Release)
Yep Roc, 2018. New Copy
The 80s Paisley Underground lives again – as this set brings together four of the best groups from that vintage scene – each covering songs by the other acts in the collection! The approach is a bit unique, and maybe doesn't stretch their talents too far – but it does provide a ... CD
Suey/I Need You Every Day
Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (pic cover)
Two rare tracks from Jimi Hendrix – both a fair bit better than you might expect! "Suey" was recorded by actress Jayne Mansfield shortly before her early death – but it's mostly a guitar instrumental with Jimi riffing over a very funky groove – while Jayne's voice ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Deram/Decca, Mid 60s. New Copy
Late 60s grooves from The Birds – the British Birds, not the American Byrds – featuring young Ronnie Wood! This collection brings together all four of The Birds extremely rare 1964-1965 Decca singles, along with ten unreleased demos, alternate takes, and unissued rarities. They never ... CD
Asylum/Anti, 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The great early double album from Tom Waits! This is peak Asylum era Waits, getting into that charismatic, drunken bluesy poet mode – essentially working live in the studio with a small audience , giving it a genuine sounding latenight cabaret vibe, and embracing his wit and style as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Asylum, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An early one from Waits – his second album – and it's a great one! Like a lot of his early oeuvre, this is a kind of like a street-savvy, hipster cabaret affair, with less of the eccentricity that would reveal itself later in his career. Still a great record though, rendered with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Oldays (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Rock-solid beat group material from the Hamburg scene – played by just the kind of combo who were likely contemporaries of The Beatles during their early years working in Germany! Most songs are covers of American rock and R&B numbers – but they're done in a frantic, gritty sort of ... CD
Guerssen (Spain), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Ambitious folksy work from British trio Jade – a set that definitely fits into the best acid folk style of the time! There's often a bit of fuller backings in the mix here – nothing slick or commercial, but just a slight use of strings or other instrumentation to give the tunes the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Both full Warner Brothers albums by this excellent group – plus bonus tracks too! First up is Vehicle – the debut album from Ides Of March – a group who will forever be known for the jazzy grooving title hit – "Vehicle", a brassy driving number that seems as if it' ... CD
Sommor (Spain), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Some of the grooviest work we've ever heard from the Spanish scene of the 70s – a record by a group who start out in psych, but also add in a lot of MPS-like touches too – funky elements at the bottom, cool organ lines and jazzy bits on the top, and an overall groove that's much more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jackpot, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s! Like Lalo, Mustafa had a great ear for mixing funkier rhythms and fuller orchestrations – often with odd instrumental twists and turns that bubble over with a fair bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
SST (with bonus track)
Transition/Out-Sider (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Not SST as in the LA hardcore label, or the sound of a jet – but SST, as in Soft Soul Transition, a very groovy group with a Sunshine Pop sort of sound! The trio has some wonderful harmonies in their music – echoes of more familiar pop of the late 60s, but presented here in a cool, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sexphonie
Mental Experience (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
One of the weirder, wilder albums from the German Krautrock scene of the 70s – as you might guess from the title, and the image of the band on the cover! These guys weren't the cool, calculating musicians who'd soon move into more synth-based modes – and instead, they've got a very ... LP, Vinyl record album
Floret Silva
Sommor (Spain), 1978. New Copy
A never-issued set from the Italian scene of the 70s – and a record that's got a fair bit more folk and acoustic elements than you might expect! The set's a project from composer Kay Hoffman, done in collaboration with members of Pierrot Lunaire – all based around lyrics from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Out-Sider (Spain), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Pretty hairy sounds from Merkin Manor – a group who have a great way of layering guitar lines over one another, then doing the same thing with the vocals! The approach is sunnier than you might expect – never that self-indulgent, thanks to good focus on the tunes' strongest elements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Time Will Tell
Guerssen (Spain), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A great album from the Northern Great Plains – a raw, intimate, yet somehow cosmic set from Justen O'Brien & Jake – the should be classic Time Will Tell! Tunes that start with lightly strummed melodies and clear sounding, sparely accented guitars, drums and vocals lead into weirder ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
The birth of hard rock on the UK scene at the end of the 60s – sounds that would go on to shape the world of guitar-based music for decades, and even pave the way for later advances in punk and metal too! The groups here are mostly tight, focused, and to the point – even on some of the ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/2016. New Copy 3 CDs
The complete works of Ranbow Ffolly – presented here in an overstuffed 3CD set! First off, forgive the double letters in the group's name – but that's the way the band spelled it themselves, and if you sounded this trippy, you'd probably do the same! Rainbow Ffolly have a really ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3 CDs
A fantastic collection of gems from the glam rock years – music that's much more obscure than the bigger work of the time by artists like Bowie, Bolan, or Queen – and which instead represents this amazing untapped underground that really opens up our understanding of the time! Some of ... CD
Egg/Esoteric (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 3CD & DVD
A fantastic collection of work from electronic wizard Tim Blake – a set that's a nice counterpart to albums under his own name, as it also features singles, work with other groups, and some rare archive material that's especially nice! CDs 1 and 2 bring together Tim's issued legacy of the ... CD
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 3CD
A stunning collection of work from Third Ear Band – a set that features their first album, a rare soundtrack, and lots of rare and unusual material too! The set begins with the self-titled Third Ear Band – the amazing debut of one of the most unique groups of the early prog years ... CD
