Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the ... (Rock) read moreCD
The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite ... (Rock) read moreCD

An album with a very mod-looking cover – and a set that's also overflowing with lots of mod-styled tracks to match – a cool current of soul from the 60s, but still handled with the sharper 70s vibe of young Attractions! Production is by Nick Lowe – and although The Jam were also ... (Rock) read moreCD
One of those rock records that shouldn't have worked – Elvis ditched the pounding pop of his earlier post punk years for this one, replacing it with 80s synthesizer soul production and hired back up singers – but it works, thanks to Costello's pen being nearly as sharp as it ever was. ...

(Run Out Groove exclusive. Pressing quantity based on pre-release demand – extremely limited and individually numbered!)
A wild one from the heady days of Leary's greatness – and a really odd record that's made even more mysterious by the lack of liner notes! Side one features an extended jamming guitar track – "Live & Let Live" – often funky in parts, and with Leary speaking from ... (Spoken Word) read moreCD

One of those records that should be an insane dark mess, given the look of the cover – but which turns out to be a surprisingly well put-together effort all the way through! Zappa does a great job of hiding behind his hair here – never acting with the pomp that a pop genius like him ... (Rock) read moreCD

(Limited transparent yellow & red heavyweight vinyl – pressed by Pallas!)
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away ... (Rock) read moreCD
