Dents1979/80 ... LP
HoZac, Late 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
Really blistering work from this lost band from Cincinnati – a group who were part of the incredible Ohio scene of the early punk years, but never saw this material issued back in the day! Yet don't let that stop you from digging in – as the work here is incredible – hard, fast, and totally on the money – at a level that might well have made The Dents one of the leading punk rock bands of the Midwest, had they managed to get these gems on record at the time! The tracks are all super-short, and super-tight – mostly with lead vocals from female singer Vivien Vinyl, and given a nonstop sense of energy from quartet work on guitar, bass, drums, and even a bit of very cool keyboards. Titles include a surprising remake of the Robert Fripp tune "You Burn Me Up" – plus "The Dented", "Why Do You Do", "Wild Bill", "Cheap Perfume", "Saucer Series", "Present Tense", "Sleeping Around", and "Baby Wants".

✨✧ Sal Maida, Mitchell Cohen, & FriendsWhite Label Promo Preservation Society – 100 Flop Albums You Ought To Know ... Book
HoZac, 2021. New Copy ... $28.99
A really great idea for a book on records – and one that's completely different than most that we've seen before! Unlike other books of this nature, which are filled with "essential" or "classic" records – this book is full of flops, or records that never really hit the heights, but which are pretty darn great overall! In the eyes of the authors – and our eyes too – all of these records are under-acknowledged gems – some by big names, others by more obscure artists – lots of which never got their full due at the time. The book is filled with some of our favorite records of all time – which is a big hats off to the long list of contributors, who include Miriam Linna, Steve Shelly, Peter Holsapple, Russ Titelman, Marshall Crenshaw, Bob Irwin, Lenny Kaye, and many others – who've come up with a set of essays on titles that include The Living Legend by Baby Huey, Gene Clark & The Gosdin Brothers, Continued by Tony Joe White, Delta Sweete by Bobby Gentry, Entertainment by Family, Desertshore by Nico, Young Mod's Forgotten Story by The Impressions, Roots by The Everly Brothers, Rock Bottom by Robert Wyatt, and lots lots more! The book is filled with records that we love, and that we'd now call classic – served up in a hefty softcover edition that's almost 400 pages in length, with black and white images throughout. Book

Adam Roth & His Band Of MenDown The Shore ... LP
HoZac, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.99
A power pop treasure finally gets its due – as this set brings together the full music created by Adam Roth for the early 80s teen trash film Down The Shore! The music more than works away from the film – the kind of brash, upfront, stripped-down sounds that often had the power pop indie scene crossing paths with the rise of punk in the US, especially in the spirit of The Ramones – delivered by Adam and the group with searing intensity and non-stop energy throughout! Roth is a hell of a guitarist and a completely charming vocalist – and the set's overflowing with well-penned short little tunes that pack a hell of a punch – titles that include "I Just Wanna Have Some Fun", "Now You're Runnin", "Judy Won't You Dance With Me", "She Said Oh", "Baseball Rock", and "Down The Shore".

Brian ShanleyDodged & Burned – Seminal Rock Photography 1976-1984 ... Book
HoZac, 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 20.00
An incredible document of the punk and post punk era live music scene in Chicago by Brian Shanley – a photographer and designer who shot so many iconic bands and did design work for Wax Trax Records early on – and this book of his black & whites is pretty breathtaking if you have even a passive interest in punk or Chicago live music history in general! It captures some of the earliest Chicago appearances by solo era Iggy Pop,The Ramones, Bauhaus, Pere Ubu, Patti Smith, Motorhead, The Dead Boys and so many more, pics from some of the legendary suburban Chicago gigs in Wheeling and Schaumburg by punk bands back in the day with gigs in the city proper were harder to get, shots of seminal Chicago bands like Skafish and Tutu & The Pirates around town, shots of X in their own LA stomping grounds, Television and others at their CBGBs home base – it's one amazing shot after another here. After a short foreword and intro the book is almost all photos, every one of them vital. Book

✨✧ Sonny VincentDiamond Distance & Liquid Fury – Sonny Vincent Primitive 1969-1976 (with download) ... LP
HoZac, Late 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A seriously strong batch of late 60s and early 70s recordings from earlier bands led by Sonny Vincent – later of relatively unsung NYC punk heroes The Testors (and featuring an unreleased Testors track) – here with early bands Distance, Fury and Liquid Diamonds and bridging the fuzzed out oozing rawness of proto punk like the Stooges and the MC5 at the time to, dare we say it, the kind of spontaneous guitar heroics of Hendrix without ever losing the pre-punk connective tissue. Vincent is a figure whose pedigree and influence reaches far and wide, having gone on from the punk era to play with Moe Tucker of the Velvet underground for years, and for being directly influential to later un-pigeonhole-able bands like Rocket From The Crypt, this is pretty great look at some of earliest stuff. Includes "She's Like Hiroshima", "Indecision", "Flying", "Aw Maw, "Scary" (the aforementioned Testors tune) and more – even a crazy old radio ad for a local NYC show that sounds like a drive-in movie clip!
