    Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs (or as simply referred to as Psalm 69) is the common title for the fifth studio album by industrial metal band Ministry, released in 1992 on Sire Records. The actual title of the album is ΚΕΦΑΛΗΞΘ, which is made up of κεφαλή (kephal), a Greek word meaning "head", and ΞΘ, the number 69 in Greek numerals. The title Psalm 69 is used for simplicity's sake. The album gave Ministry a more mainstream audience, with the track "Jesus Built My Hotrod" receiving major airplay on MTV and various other music stations. Psalm 69 also marked Ministry's first release with guitarist Mike Scaccia, who was recruited by band frontman and founder Al Jourgensen in 1989. Sealed brand new 180 gram vinyl, issued with a printed inner sleeve with credits. (Sire Records/Rhino Records/2011)

    MELVINS | hold it in | LP

    18.50 incl. tax
    Continuing their ongoing string of lineup experiments, Melvins stalwarts Dale Crover and King Buzzo team up with Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary and J.D. Pinkus on Hold It In. With such a distinct sound, the band's various personnel changes often feel somewhat superfluous, offering a variation on their usual sound without altering things too far from the kind of sludgy goodness listeners have come to know and love. With the addition of Pinkus and Leary, however, it feels as though a very fundamental shift has occurred, taking the band's sound in some very different, and interesting, new directions. Although the album's opener, "Bride of Crankenstein," feels like classic Melvins with its constant assault of crunchy riffs and grimy production, Hold It In enjoys a radical change in tone on "You Can Make Me Wait," a laid-back rocker with a groovy, slacker vibe that leaves it feeling more like Ween than the Melvins. Meanwhile, "Eyes on You" finds the band doing a freaked-out impression of a straight-ahead blues-rock number, pairing a rowdy, stomping beat (with handclaps and all) with oddly paranoid vocals. Those songs were penned by Leary, and the decision to hand the control to someone else is a bold one on Crover and Buzzo's part. Though the album contains plenty of odd twists and turns, there's enough of the old Melvins to keep things from straying too far from home, offering more than a few comforting oases for listeners to refresh themselves before they head out to explore some of Hold It In's weirder moments, making for a mix of the strange and the familiar that feels like classic Melvins without necessarily sounding like the bandmembers are borrowing ideas from themselves.

  • M.D.C. finally goes acoustic: the hardcore punk legend around DAVE DICTOR records their classics as "Millions Of Dead Cowboys" in a completely new guise. LP in a 350 gram cardboard cover with printed inlay and download code on Twisted Chords. While every second US punk rock singer feels like he has armed himself with a check shirt and acoustic guitar in the past 15 years and tries to shine ambitiously in the fields of country, folk and Americana, things are a little different with MIKE SMITH and DAVID DICTOR. Although the twelve selected songs were recorded almost continuously acoustically or at least with an undistorted guitar, iconic classics such as "John Wayne Was A Nazi", "Corporate Deathburger" and "Nazis Shouldn't Drive" not only retain their entirety due to the unmistakable singer own flair. So M.D.C. unplugged a kind of acoustic "radical rock" rather than arriving in the Nashville canon, steel guitar, violin or banjo was deliberately avoided. The songs are calm, catchy and profound - not a genre homage, but a completely unique version of themselves. From personal stories from a turbulent life to the biting self-defense against American realities, the band's smashers work perfectly even in the reduced setup.

  • "Ο LOGOUT είναι τραγουδοποιός και ο παραγωγός που συνδυάζει παραδοσιακές αναφορές με lo-fi indie, ηλεκτρονικά και πειραματικά στοιχεία. Σε ζωντανές εμφανίσεις, το LOGOUT συνδυάζει φυσικά όργανα με live-looping, sampling και digital video art. Εκτός της τραγουδοποιίας έχει επίσης συμμετάσχει εκτελώντας τη μουσική σε θεατρικές παραστάσεις των Abovo και του Ηλία Καρελλά. Η πρώτη του κυκλοφορία ήταν το Paper Plane Flight Recorder (Inner Ear Records, 2011), ένα album που βασίστηκε σε folk ενορχηστρώσεις εισάγοντας και κάποιες πρώτες παραδοσιακές ελληνικές αναφορές στην παλέτα του. Το δεύτερο άλμπουμ του Little Things Buried in Concrete (Inner Ear Records, 2013) ήταν σε παραγωγή του Χρήστου Λαινά, η οποία έντυσε τα κομμάτια με πιο εναλλακτικούς και indie ήχους. Το τρίτο άλμπουμ του ήρθε 6 χρόνια αργότερα. Το N91° κυκλοφόρησε τον Μάιο του 2019, μέσω της ολλανδικής ετικέτας Indie Tiny Room Records και τον βρήκε να πειραματίζεται ακόμη περισσότερο με ήχους synthesizer ως την κύρια βάση των ενορχηστρώσεων του. Τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2019, οι ηχογραφήσεις που έκανε με το συγκρότημα The Place Within πριν από τα σόλο του έργα κυκλοφόρησαν επίσης ψηφιακα. Το τέταρτο άλμπουμ του ΕΔΩ / ΕΚΕΙ κυκλοφορεί στις 16 Οκτωβρίου 2020. Είναι η πρώτη του κυκλοφορία με στίχους στη μητρική του γλώσσα, τα ελληνικά. Το ΕΔΩ / ΕΚΕΙ είναι η πρώτη απόπειρα του LogOut με ελληνικό στίχο και οι ηχογραφήσεις του μοιράστηκαν σε Αθήνα και Άμστερνταμ. Ακούγοντάς το ήταν σαν να παρακολουθώ ταινία. Από το πρώτο κομμάτι, τα lo - fi στοιχεία είναι εμφανέστατα, όπως και οι επιρροές από Radiohead αλλά και από ελληνική μουσική. Υπάρχουν τραγούδια που έχουν τόσο ξεκάθαρα ελληνικά στοιχεία, όπως τα "Καταρράκτης", "Φίλη", "Αερικό" και Τρίτες, που σκέφτηκα ότι to άλμπουμ αυτό αναδρομικά θα μπορούσε να είναι το soundtrack μιας ταινίας της Φίνος Φιλμ. Ξεχωρίζουν σίγουρα οι συνεργασίες με τη Nalyssa Green στα φωνητικά στα "Γκρι", "Κώστας" και "Παράθυρα". Επίσης, το "Κύματα" με έκανε να νιώσω σαν να κρυφοκοιτάω από τις τρύπες των πατζουριών τη βιαστική καθημερινότητα σε κάποια μεγάλη πόλη της Ευρώπης. Προσωπικά μου αγαπημένα υπήρξαν, όμως, το "Παράθυρα" (μου θύμισε πολύ έντονα το "No Surprises" των Radiohead), αλλά και το "Πλατεία". Τα μελαγχολικά φωνητικά, η νοσταλγική διάθεση και τα φουτουριστικά synths, μου έδωσαν την εντύπωση ότι ο LogOut προσπαθεί να απεικονίσει μια εβδομαδιαία καθημερινότητα, παρατηρώντας τους ανθρώπους με ένα τηλεσκόπειο από λίγο πιο δίπλα αλλά προσπαθεί και να αποτυπώσει πολύ λυρικά την απομόνωση της ξενιτιάς. Πολύ ιδιαίτερο είναι το ροζ εξώφυλλο, με τις ανθρώπινες σκιές που αχνοφαίνονται. Μου έβγαλε μια πίκρα και θα μπορούσε και αυτό να είναι το artwork μιας ελληνικής ταινίας. Αναμφίβολα, το Εδώ / εκεί είναι ένα άλμπουμ που διεκδικεί επάξια θέση στην ελληνόφωνη indie σκηνή της χρονιάς!" deBop (B-otherside Records)

    20.00 incl. tax
    The untitled fourth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV, was released on 8 November 1971 by Atlantic Records. It was produced by guitarist Jimmy Page and recorded between December 1970 and February 1971, mostly in the country house Headley Grange.

  • In Through the Out Door is the eighth and final studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin. It was recorded over a three-week period in November and December 1978 at ABBA's Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, and released by Swan Song Records on 15 August 1979. This is the final album released prior to the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, shortly after which the group decided to disband. The original album had an outer sleeve which was made to look like a plain brown paper bag. Each cover showed an alternate angle of a man in a bar. The scenario has been photographed from 6 different viewpoints within the bar and then 6 different sleeve variations have been created (with the letters A - F at the top of the spine denoting each variation). The inner sleeve features a 'magic' ink in different colours which appear on the design when gently wetting. Comes in a brown paper bag. (Swan Song/2015)

Their music is fast, dirty, and profound. 180 gram audiophile vinyl Insert (Music on Vinyl Record)

    The debut and best album from Killing Joke from 1980. It is a dark, obsessive and dangerous album. The band backed its occult-inspired, apocalyptic message with tribal drums, rubber funk bass...and droning guitars. Years later it still sounds inspirational and deranged. ‘Killing Joke’ – the classic debut album featuring such key tracks as ‘Requiem’, ‘Wardance’ & ‘The Wait’ (covered by Metallica in 1987). The gatefold artwork has been lovingly recreated by original designer Mike Coles, the sole addition being a striking silver pantone on the sleeve. (Spinefarm Records)    
  • ‘Pandemonium’ – originally released in 1984 and partially recorded inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, this is KJ’s biggest-selling album to date. The Re-issued double LP version – featuring new cover artwork from designer Mike Coles – stays true to the original track-listing, with both of the celebrated Cybersank Re-mixes for ‘Pandemonium’ & ‘Millennium’ included.

  • ICEBURN | asclepius | LP

    22.00 incl. tax
    Asclepius is the new album from the ever-evolving and adventurous collective Iceburn, who return with their first new material in twenty years. Much like the mythical ouroboros that appear in their music, Iceburn have come full circle, as guitarist/vocalist Gentry Densley (also of Eagle Twin & Ascend) comments, “Iceburn had always been about progressing and pushing the boundaries, pushing the music ahead of ourselves so we had to work to catch up. This new record comes from a place of rediscovery of who we are deep down, a place that with all it’s challenges and comforts, ultimately feels like home.” The rawness of Asclepius harks back to the days of their early records (such as Hephaestus), and fuses elements of metal, jazz, psychedelia, and rock with a seamless flow, monolithic riffs, swirling harmonies, and a groove that are the cornerstones of their sound. Asclepius comprises two long-form tracks, “Healing The Ouroboros” and ‘Dahlia Rides the Firebird’, the latter is based on an old traditional Greek tune. With some members majoring in classics/philosophy, music/composition and studying ethnomusicology – classic mythology has always been a key reference point for the themes of their music. That the new record is named after the god of healing and medicine and arriving at this moment in time is coincidence, as the band comments, “It felt like we needed healing even before this pandemic hit.” (Southern Lord Records)
  • Legendary 1972 show at The Roundhouse, London from the Space Ritual era. Includes the original recording of Hawkwind’s hit single ‘Silver Machine’. It is the first time the whole show has been available on double vinyl. Bonus tracks include ‘Master Of The Universe’ (Original 1972 LP Mix) and ‘Born To Go’ (Original 1972 LP Mix). (Parlophone)
  • Jed is the second studio album by Goo Goo Dolls, originally released in 1989 by Metal Blade Records. It was the band's first album in which John Rzeznik sang vocals for some of the tracks; the majority of the songs are sung by Robby Takac, with Rzeznik taking over for two ("Up Yours" and "James Dean"). The album was named after painter Jed Jackson, who was Robby Takac's art teacher at Medaille College and who painted the cover artwork, which is entitled "Arkansas Sunset". (Metal Blade Records)

    Hold Me Up is the third studio album by American rock band Goo Goo Dolls, originally released in 1990 by Metal Blade Records.

    FUGAZI | the argument | LP

    20.00 incl. tax
    2001’s The Argument was the final Fugazi album before the band took an extended and possibly permanent hiatus. It’s easy to see why the venerated D.C. group would be comfortable closing its career here; The Argument brings its four players full circle. Guy Picciotto’s “Full Disclosure” and Ian MacKaye’s “Epic Problem” give the album two songs—one from each frontman—that reconnect to the bracing physicality that defined Fugazi in its earliest years. At the same time, the album marks the final step of the group’s long trek to extricate itself from its early punk roots. With deep dub inflections and whispering piano, “The Kill” and “Strangelight” might make listeners think that film composing should be the band’s next chapter. As has always been the case with Fugazi, the songs that blend extremes stand out from the pack. “Cashout,” “Life and Limb,” and “The Argument” join the ranks of the group’s classic songs. (Dischord Records)
  • Steady Diet of Nothing is the second full-length studio album by American post-hardcore band Fugazi, released in July, 1991 The style of this is different from "13 songs" and "repeater" but it still has the FUGAZI sound. Here they got more abstract and artsy - but it really works. So if you like any of their other stuff go and buy this. The vinyl was re-cut and re-mastered in 2009 and comes with a digital download card. (Dischord Records) https://fugazi.bandcamp.com/album/steady-diet-of-nothing
  • The 6 track release marks the 1st appearance of Guy Picciotto’s guitar-work in addition to his regular vocal duties. Recorded at Inner Ear Studios in 1988! The vinyl was re-cut and re-mastered in 2009 and includes a digital download card. (Dischord Records)  
  • On January 1, 2000, I wrote a fax to Frankie and asked him, if he would like to release a few songs on my label - Sounds of Subterrania. 4months later - these six very special songs were released. 20 years later - Frankie is back on stage and we had thought about reissuing this record, which had been sold out for a long time, and selling it at his concerts. "Not long after re-convening Leatherface Frankie Stubbs put out this little solo acoustic 10". The results are sort of what you would imagine Leatherface would sound like without the electricity. The lack of musical varnish reveals a sound more akin to folk-blues then singer-songwriter. Of course, Stubbs' love of romantic pop is also on display here, as he (re)covers Elvis Presley's "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You" and Nick Cave's "Ship Song".

  • It's been a few years but FRANKIE STUBBS, the lead singer and guitarist for the legendary UK punk band LEATHERFACE, is back with an all new acoustic 4 song EP, "Blood Orange Moon". The record contains 3 brand new songs and a version of the LEATHERFACE favorite "Shipyards". Along with his unmistakeable voice, this stripped down EP highlights Frankie's unique approach to songwriting, thoughtful lyrics and intricate guitar playing. Backed by Graeme Philliskirk (LEATHERFACE, MEDICTATION) on additional acoustic guitars, Blood Orange Moon is wonderful look into what Frankie has been up to in his songwriting lately as well as a nostalgic throwback to the LEATHERFACE days. Frankies songs have the broad appeal that can attract new listeners and old fans alike. People will be singing along to these songs at his shows for years to come. This EP is a split release between Little Rocket Records in the UK and Rad Girlfriend Records in the US.

  • One of all time great albums. ''Searching For The Young Soul Rebels' captures the original eight-piece group infusing passionate self-belief into songs based on 60s mentors Geno Washington and Jimmy James. Rowland's expressive voice is perfectly matched by pumping horns and punchy rhythms, but the intensity of their performance ensures the set never falls into pastiche. Each song bears the stamp of a manifesto, one that was largely Rowland's, a myopic vision that brought this line-up to an acrimonious, premature end. Celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this year, this is the debut album from new-wave band Dexy’s Midnight Runners. The album has a surprising history, with band members stealing the original tapes and only returning them once EMI raised their royalty rates. The album received widespread critical acclaim and is featured in The Guardian and NME’s 100 Best Albums lists. (Parlophone)
