Monster Melodies (France), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold
Satan never sounded so groovy before – brought forth in the hands of this excellent French prog combo from the 70s – whose razor-sharp instrumentation is more than enough to call the black prince into being! The album's not immediately the hard rock set you might expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fontana/Granadilla (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic work from this heavy-hitting combo from Chicago – a group with a harder sound than even some of the better-known acts on Dunwich! The music here definitely carries elements of the blues espoused in the group's name – but the overall execution is much rougher, and more garagey ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1977. New Copy
An album with a really creepy cover, but a sound that's maybe a bit more down to earth overall – late 70s electronic rock, in a manner that's a bit like the generation of French groups like Space Art, or like the sound of the German scene when it was tightening things up a bit more from the ... CD
Luna Africana
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A weird mix of electronics and percussion from the German scene – a set recorded in 1981, but with a freewheeling vibe that's almost more like some of the electronic experiments of the prog years! Clara Mondshine plays a range of keyboards – most with these sounds that are somewhere in ... CD
Beat It Down
Neutral/Water Wing, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic female combo – one that we'd rank right up there with The Slits, ESG, or Pulsallama for their offbeat energy and quirky approach to music! The set was recorded at Noise New York, and definitely has a spirit that recalls the best of the no wave generation – as the group mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roger Nichols Treasury
Victor (Japan), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs
A treasure trove of rare work from the great Roger Nichols – best known for his famous songwriting partnership with Paul Williams, and his Small Circle Of Friends album for A&M! Nichols is one of those guys who hardly recorded much under his own name, since he'd done so much to help ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
A fantastic collection that goes way beyond the original Nuggets compilation – a set that digs even deeper into the now-huge Warner Brothers vaults – past familiar tracks from the home label, Elektra, and Atlantic – to include material from the huge range of other companies that ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
A fantastic collection that goes way beyond the original Nuggets compilation – a set that digs even deeper into the now-huge Warner Brothers vaults – past familiar tracks from the home label, Elektra, and Atlantic – to include material from the huge range of other companies that ... CD
Warner, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
The seminal debut of The Grateful Dead – a record that was maybe as important to the American psychedelic scene as the first two albums by Pink Floyd were to the UK! Like those sets, this one almost seems to come out of nowhere – still very much a part of its time, with trippiness and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy
That's a really trippy cover on this second album from Blonde On Blonde – and the sound is nicely trippy, too – a bit more complex than on their debut album – with just the right dose of psych elements thrown into the mix of their well-crafted songs! Acoustic guitar actually gets ... CD
Pye/Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Great work from a group who were maybe a few steps ahead of most of their UK contemporaries – able to mix in some deeper ideas with more familiar grooves – with a lyrical power that's way more than some of the usual themes from the beat group generation! There's definitely a few cuts ... CD
Little Mafia, 2016. New Copy
Mushroom are back, after a long hiatus from the studio – and the group have a sound that's even sharper and more fully-formed than ever! It might seem a bit ballsy of the group to snag an image and title from an Eldridge Cleaver album of the late 60s if you didn't know Mushroom mainstay Pat ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rebirth (with bonus tracks)
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy
These guys may have a name that evokes a Bob Dylan album, but their sound is something else entirely – a magical blend of simple instruments in a really unique way – and a songwriting voice that really sets these guys apart from the rest! There were so many great UK groups at the end ... CD
Sundazed, Early/Mid 60s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Storming early 60s surf rock fro Dave Myers & His Surf Tones! "Gear” is an instrumental wtih some pretty fierce guitar & heavy drums – with perfect mix of seedy sounds without shiftout out the dancefloor mode. The The flip is a heavy cover of “Let The Good Times ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sundazed, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The early 70s hard psych holy grail – Morly Grey's Only Truth LP – a tripped out classic that'd been bootlegged over and over! There's a propulsive heaviness to much of the album, but, they break it down with trippy elements and slow it down in spots, too. It's our favorite kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece of early electric Dylan – and one easily one of the most pivotal recordings of the 60s in any genre! featuring classics like "Subterranean Homesick Blues", "Maggie's Farm", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Gates Of Eden", "It's All Over Now, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
Pivotal early Dylan! Plenty of early classics and hits on this one – including "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", "Blowin In The Wind", "Down The Highway", "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", "I Shall Be Free", "Bob Dylan's Dream", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Gritty and powerful grooves from The Yardbirds – a set that mixes bluesy guitars and psych in a pretty incredible way – all infused by excellent work from the young Jimmy Page, at a level that predicts course he's take with Led Zeppelin just a few years later! By the time of Little ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Iggy Pop may have left The Stoges behind, but he's lost none of his edge – and really finds a new level of solo greatness on this sublime classic from the 70s! The set was produced by David Bowie, who also plays piano on the set – and has Carlos Alamar adding in some guitar – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Honeymoon In Red
Widowspeak Productions/Bang (Spain), 1987. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really great return to form for Lydia Lunch – maybe her sharpest rock album of the late 80s, and certainly one of the few that rivals the genius of her earlier records! Make no mistake, Lydia was hardly faltering at the time – she was instead working on film and spoken projects that ... LP, Vinyl record album
