Anemic BoyfriendsFake ID/Bad Girls In Love ... 7-inch
HoZac, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $6.99 7.95
Killer couple tracks by the Anemic Boyfriends – both boisterous blasts of all girl teen punk circa the early 80s – from Anchorage, Alaska of all places! Led by singer Louise Disease, The Anemic Boyfriends could've been the rightful inheritors of the throne left unoccupied by the breakup of the Runaways – and we're not saying that just because they're a group of young girls in a raw rock scene that had too few female-led groups – for the way they so savagely bust boundaries with rebellious underage lyricism and are unashamed of rocking out with a glam rock & garage rock inspired sound, as opposed to punk boilerplate. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Julian LealJulian Leal (with download) ... LP
JLI/HoZac, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 16.00
A rare, beloved gem from the midwest power pop scene – laced with catchy hooks, buzzing guitars and synthesizer that somehow sounds like it hasn't aged a day! The key to Romeoville, IL native Julian Leal's self-titled LP being such a timeless treasure is probably the same as the one that keeps the best of superstars like Cheap Trick and local faves & cult heroes like Green, Shoes, Off Broadway and later groups like Material Issue from ever getting stale. It's gotta be the razor sharp, tuneful songcraft, a prefect mix of barbed and sugary hooks. Leal's sound is unique for the scene in his use of a synthesizer alongside the guitars, and that serves the songs and sound really well, as the rawer setting doesn't date it like so many big budget studio recordings of the time. Includes "You & I", "Doing Them Wrong", "Tonight", "Dream Girl", "Catch Her Thrill", "Get Away", "Roller Skates", "Be Mine", "Again", "Sail Away", "Tomorrow" and "Mad About You". LP, Vinyl record album

OisterOister (with download) ... LP
HoZac, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
Unsung early 70s genius from Dwight Twilley & Phil Seymour – a few years earlier than their legendary power pop in the Dwight Twilley Band, and a pretty stunning batch of tightly melodic material that's just raw enough – top shelf stuff seeing proper release for the first time ever! Stunningly, these are essentially home recordings, made while they were knocking around their hometown of Tulsa in '73 & '74, but it's pretty freaking incredible how fully realized the sound and overall craft are here. This is no grainy batch of workshop material, nor does it sound like demos or aural blueprints of glories to come – it's incredibly catchy and full of great songs with killer harmonies. The best package yet in the Hozac Archival series! Includes "Love Is A Train", "Hot Ma", "Lovin' Me", "No Resistance", "Come And See Me", "Little Stars", "Didn't You", "You Can't Remember It", "Pop Bottle", "Miserable Lady", "Rock Yourself Son", "You're My Lover", "Release Me" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download and gatefold notes.)

✨✧ Matt GimmickDetroit Renaissance '79 (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
HoZac, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Raw proto punk inspired savagery from the late 70s Detroit underground! Matt Gimmick's Detroit Renaissance '79 is the quintessential slice of the kind of unorthodox punk rock that Detroit did different and better than any other scene – as pummeling and charged as any of the simpler 4 chord blasters of the post Ramones school, but with a greasy and loose-limbed garagey vibe that bears the influence of classic rock, even if they batter it to bits. Includes the title track, a pair of incendiary Stooges covers in "Rag" and "Ya Don't Want My Name" and "Cry". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Rich TupicaThere Was A Light – The Cosmic History Of Chris Bell & The Rise Of Big Star ... Book
HoZac, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Chris Bell is one of the great mysterious figures in 70s underground rock – a key part of Big Star during that group's short run, a solo artist who produced some amazing music that was years ahead of its time, and a tragic figure who was taken from our planet all too soon! Like Gram Parsons, Nick Drake, and a handful of others – Bell's genius has only gotten full appreciation in the years after his death – with a musical legacy that just seems richer and richer the more people poke into it – as is his personal story as well. Both are explored here in huge detail by author Rich Tupica – in a very cool format that brings together personal history from dozens of Bell's friends and associates – as Tupica strings together passages from interviews in each different chapter – letting the voices rise and fall, almost in conversation with each other – amidst a wealth of photos and other very cool rare images too. 408 pages, softcover, in black and white. Book
(Limited to 500 copies!)
