Ike Yard ... LP Factory/Superior Viaduct, 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A rare album on Factory Records – and one of the few records on the label done by an American group as well! Yet despite the rather obscure status of Ike Yard – who issued this set on Factory US – the overall vibe of the set is very much in the spirit of classic Manchester ...

One of those Joy Division 12" singles that's definitely worth owning as a separate piece of wax – because the raw power and moody energy of "Transmission" just flows perfectly out of the fast-spinning single with its extra-deep grooves! "Novelty" is great, too – ... (Rock) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
A stunning record – and one that still chills us to the bone after all these years! The set's the first (and one of the few) from Joy Division – and really set a whole new standard for the post-punk underground – thanks partly to the group's brooding sense of darkness, but also ...

(180 gram reissue from 2007, in the textured cover with heavy inner sleeve.)
A dark classic that broke out of the underground and forever transformed the world of dance music! "Blue Monday" has this infectious bass/keyboard riff that you'll recognize immediately – and which you've heard emulated a million times in electro house tracks from later on in the ...

Temporarily Out Of Stock
New Order take a slightly sweeter turn for this mid 80s set – but still never lose the charm that won us from their first few records! There's a warmth here we might not have expected in the immediate post-Joy Division years – and a catchy tunefulness on some of the biggest crossover ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Columbia House pressing. NOTE – Cover is stained at the bottom half, with minor flaking on front. Includes the heavy inner sleeve, with some wrinkles from moisture.)
"Murder" is a great statement of evolution from New Order – a track that has a title that would have been right at home in the Joy Division years, and the same sort of heavy drums you'd hear on Closer – but a more far-reaching sense of progression as the murky vocals mix with ...

A fantastically tuneful single from New Order – but one that also still has the group at their best pre-pop level – catchy, but moody at the same time – with really strong basswork from Peter Hook, and a keyboard line that's light and dreamy as a nice contrast! That great bass ... (Rock) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
