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".

LiminanasCrystal Anis ... CD
HoZac, 2012. Used ... $14.99
Noirish French rock from The Liminanas – the second great record in a row from multi-instrumentalist Lionel and sultry singer/drummer Marie! Crystal Anis is their first album for Hozac – and one that equals, if not tops their underground instant classic debut for Trouble In Mind. Honestly, no other neo-classic garage psych revivalists anywhere in the world hits our sweet spot like The Liminanas. They carry a darkness-tinged, fuzzy guitar vibe inspired by early Velvets, the sometimes spoken, sometimes sung sexiness of Serge Gainsbourg and his chanteuses on the vocal tip, and an overall narcotic vibe that sinks in and doesn't let up. Yes, the influences are familiar, but what they do with them is uniquely hypnotic and wholly distinctive. The songs jump back and forth from French to English, but it's really all about the mood here. We can't recommend 'em highly enough! Titles Include "Salvation", "Longanisse", "AF3458", "Kinam", "Hospital Boogie", "Bad Lady Goes To Jail", "Crystal Anis", "Belmondo", "Betty And Johnny", "Une Ballade Pour Clive" and the closing instrumental "I'm Dead".

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

✨✧ Brian ShanleyDodged & Burned – Seminal Rock Photography 1976-1984 ... Book
HoZac, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ 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!
