Abduction, 2017. New Copy
Amazing sounds from Alvarius B – aka Alan Bishop, who you'll know from his long legacy of music as part of the Sun City Girls – but who's definitely blowing us away here as a solo artist on his own! The album's a triple-length set – and it's got this really unusual blend of ... LP, Vinyl record album

HoZac, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Raw, grimy and glammy proto punk from The Razor Boys – trailblazing stuff from the late 70s Atlanta scene! Given the era and the glam appearance, it's near impossible to not mention a debt to the New York Dolls, but really, The Razor Boys direct knock off of no one, just a fierce vessel for ... LP, Vinyl record album
HoZac, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Vital roar from late 70s Canada by Lowlife – maybe the first ever punk band from Winnipeg! Given the monsters pictured on the sleeve, you might think "Leaders" would be super gnarly, but it's a pretty hooky track, though plenty raw. "White Lightning" isn't a punk version ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Transformer
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Lou Reed's fantastic early solo LP – melding the aloof, plaintive vocal performance style he perfected with the Velvets and unbelievable sharp songwriting with the vamped up, fuzzed out guitars of Mick Ronson, some symphonic touches, and the guiding spirit of Ziggy Stardust era Bowie. This ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vernons Girls/Lyn Cornell
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Groovy sounds from the Vernons Girls – a larger choir who were originally created in support of a Liverpool football team – but who shrunk to a trio by the early 60s, when they recorded some very rocking material! That latter sound of the group is our favorite here – and the set ... CD
Industrial/Mute, 1979. New Copy 2CD
The title might seem like a joke – given Throbbing Gristle's reputation for intense noise and dark sounds – but at another level, it's actually a great fit for the spirit of the record too! The sound here is a lot leaner than before – almost as if TG is focusing in on the best ... CD
RCA, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Lou Reed at his mid 70s live peak! Volumes have already been and will continue to be written about Lou's output in the 70s, and rightly so. This set is particularly amazing in that it follows the artful highpoint/financial failure that is Berlin – so Lou is doing the rock & roll star ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Lou Reed's maybe a bit more subtle here than during his years with the Velvet Underground, and his earliest solo records – but he also has this new sort of maturity that really points the way forward to the years to come! Coney Island Baby further marks the continuing legacy of Lou Reed as a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Berlin
RCA, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The "biggest" album of Lou Reed's career – in the grand sense – with epic production and a small army of superstar session players and production by spectacle specialist Bob Ezrin – but that's paired with arguably the darkest, gloomiest songcycle ever composed by Lou ... LP, Vinyl record album
Industrial/Mute, 1977. New Copy 2CD
Some of the darkest, most bracing music ever recorded by Throbbing Gristle – and a record that arguably captures the group at their best! The sounds here are virtually the blueprint for industrialism for years to come – loads of low-end sonic rumblings, with instrumentation distorted ... CD
Supreme Echo (Canada), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A little known punk trio formed in Canada in 1976 – but a vitally important one – certainly among of the first wave of all women punk groups in North America, and maybe one of the first all girl North American punk bands period! You know what else? They're a great band, period, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Supreme Echo (Canada), 1976. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Glam rock/proto punk single by Canadian rockers Twitch – raw, killer and hook-filled jams all the way! At this point, circa '76, Twitch look like a garage-bound Kiss, but they're way better than that! The songs are so catchy that if they were recorded in a glossier setting it'd sound like ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
6 Times/Turn Me On Woman (with insert)
Supreme Echo (Canada), 1972. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Raw early 70s rock from Winnipeg – caught in a crazy era between psychedelia and proto-punk, and delivering an oddly endearing sound with bits of both! "6 Times" is a ragged jam by Ronnie & Natalie, a brother & sister duo singing and screaming over glam-psych weirdness. ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Supreme Echo (Canada), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
An incredibly cool 3 song EP by late 70s Vancouver punk band The Zellots – way ahead of the curve in the way they embrace the raw fury of the international punk scene with a serious ear for Girl Group harmonies – and have the voices to pull off both! In just these 3 songs, purportedly ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dark Years
Supreme Echo (Canada), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A crazy far ahead of the curve macabre metal album from Twitch – who from looking at the make-up and costumes you might think are from the Norwegian black metal era – but they're actually a Canadian band who delivered this prescient slab as early as '74! As scary as they look, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boardwalk/Big Beat (UK), Early 80s. New Copy
Classic sounds from the well-named "prince of power pop" – the mighty Phil Seymour, a singer who only gave us a few albums at the start of the 80s – but a singer who really helped to define a generation at the time! Seymour came onto the scene after the initial ripples of ... CD
EG/Glitterbeat (Germany), 1981. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the lasting moments of genius from trumpeter Jon Hassell – his second entry in Brian Eno's 4th World series, and a set that's even more mindblowing than the first! As with that one, the approach here mixes together electric and acoustic sounds, with an imagined landscape of ... LP, Vinyl record album
