• All Mod Cons from 1978 is where everything really came together for the Jam. The songs and the writing matured by leaps and bounds compared to This is the Modern World. Weller has some of his best work on this album including the beautiful ballad English Rose, the stumbling anger of the title track, and the chilling Down in a Tube Station at Midnight with it's rapid fire drums and funky walking bass lending a real sense of urgency to the story being unfolded by Weller. His social commentary here is biting and pissed off and though the music spread out in more directions with Weller building off his various influences (especially r&b), the spirit of the album is punk, through and through. a wonderful album that gets stronger with every listen and it remains one of the great original punk albums as well as one of the great British albums of all time. (Polydor/2006)
  • THE JAM | in the city | LP

    20.00 incl. tax
    In the year of punk, the Jam exploded onto the music scene with this seminal debut album. The raw, unfettered aggression of the band's approach was well in keeping with the spirit of the times, but the heart of their songs and sound lay in the mod movement of the mid-'60s (early Who, Creation, etc.). Singer / guitarist Paul Weller comes off like a cross between Joe Strummer and the young Pete Townshend, bashing unreservedly through Slow Down, one of the r&b tunes that inspired the original mods. Weller extols the virtues of frenzied dancing and nonconformist youth culture (Non-stop Dancing, Away From the Numbers) over the raging three-chord attack of bassist Bruce Foxton and drummer Rick Buckler. The pure punk insouciance of his words and delivery is a perfect match for the raging but hooky 'arrangements,' which basically consisted of the band walking into the studio and blazing through their live set. Rickenbacker guitars never sounded so thick, and skinny ties never seemed less geeky. (Polydor – PD-1-6110)
  • As is so often the case for overnight successes, the Jam rush-recorded their sophomore effort during a hurried schedule to capitalize on the debut. This, combined with Paul Weller's various personal distractions and temporary lack of interest, led to less than satisfying results, especially in comparison to 'In the City'. 'This is the Modern World' can be faulted for borrowed who licks, pale rewrites of the debut, somewhat cliched sloganeering, and unfinished ideas, but there were still some moments of inspiration, especially in more introspective Weller songs like 'Life from a Window' and 'I Need You (For Someone)' - both songs feature personal sentiments that the debut was clearly missing. 'This is the Modern World' is a flawed album by Jam standards, but it would certainly have received praise had it been released by another band. (Polydor/Hauppauge Pressing/1991)
  • Goat is the second full-length studio album by The Jesus Lizard, released in 1991. It is their most acclaimed album, with many critics[when?] calling it one of the best albums of the 1990s. The album was produced by Steve Albini. Its cover art, by bassist David Wm. Sims, at first glance resembles a flame, but is actually a topless woman with a close-up image of nails projected onto her body. The rear of the album, and several panels of the enclosed CD booklet include similar pictures of the same naked woman, with different images projected onto her body. It was ranked as the 38th best album of the 1990s by the online magazine Pitchfork. (Touch and Go!)

  • 3η κοπή σε Oxblood βινύλιο. 200 κόπιες. H βόλτα κρατάει… Κοντά εννιά χρόνια μετά από το προηγούμενο full length album τους, οι The Last Drive επανέρχονται ορμητικά με τον νέο δίσκο τους, που φέρει το όνομά τους. Σκοπός τους, για άλλη μια φορά, να ταράξουν τα νερά της εγχώριας ροκ σκηνής, και όχι μόνο. Αφού πέρασαν το μεσοδιάστημα με συναυλίες εντός και εκτός συνόρων, επιχειρούν μια αβίαστη, ανοιχτή περιπλάνηση στα μονοπάτια του rock n roll και της ψυχεδέλειας• χάνουν και ξαναβρίσκουν τους εαυτούς και τις επιρροές τους, απελευθερωμένοι από στεγανά. Οκτώ δικές τους συνθέσεις με συνολική διάρκεια 45 λεπτών, ικανές να χωρέσουν τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματα όλων μας σε μια εποχή που δοκιμάζει όρια και βεβαιότητες. Ανάμεσά τους κομμάτια που δεν έχουν παρουσιαστεί, αλλά και highlights από τις ζωντανές εμφανίσεις όπως το Always the Sun και το White Knuckles, η πρώτη εκδοχή του οποίου ακούστηκε στο ντοκιμαντέρ Fascism Inc. O δίσκος αφιερώνεται στo Drive Tribe, την κοινότητα των φίλων που στηρίζουν όλα αυτά τα χρόνια το γκρουπ, και στη μνήμη του αγαπημένου Fred Cole των Dead Moon, που χάθηκε πρόσφατα. Κυκλοφορεί από τις Labyrinth of thoughts records & The Lab records. (Labyrinth of Thoughts Records / The Lab Records)

    Regular soft-cover version. "Kansai" is a region in Japan that lies in the southern-central territory of Japan's main island Honshu and includes the prefectures of Mie, Nara, Wakayama, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo and Shiga. The metropolitan area of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto (Keihanshin region) is the second-most populated in Japan after the Greater Tokyo Area. This book, previously published only in Japanese and now finally translated into English, is an incredible journey through the depths of the Kansai Hardcore hell run by none other than Ishiya of DEATH SIDE and FORWARD fame. Teaming up with him in the interviews is Shintani from RAPES, whose career stretches from the early days of the Punk/Metal scene to the present. Packed with interviews, tons of interesting anecdotes and spiced up with rare pictures, this is the definitive work about that legendary scene, a true-to-the-bone, authentic Hardcore report.. Bands included: ZOUO, S.O.B., OUTO, RAPES, WARHEAD, NIGHTMARE, MOBS, Charmy & Pon (LAUGHIN’ NOSE, NASHI) and more!

  • Black leather, spikes and chains, The Lewd is, as Dirk Dirksen put it, "One of them kind of acts." Their 1982 album, "American Wino," is violent, ugly, perverse and frightening. The songs betray a bleak and ominous vision of American life seen through the eyes of youth without hope of a future. This is not the San Francisco sound of the '60s, but rather the belligerent sounds of these Seattle transplants' fight for survival on the gritty streets where the dejection of last generation's Utopian failures meets the stark realities of economic deprivation. This is fast, jarring and furious punk rock at its finest. Long languishing in obscurity due to its rarity, the reissue of this seminal LP makes it a compulsory component of any punk rock record collection. (Fan Club)  
  • The Lewd were one of the coolest and best West Coast (Seattle/SF) Punk/Hardcore bands of the late 70s /early 80s. Known for their sought after KBD 7' single 'Kill Yourself' (1979) and their classic LP 'American Wino' (1982) This collection of demos from 1979 to 1980 bridges the gap between their 70s punk days in Seattle and 80s Hardcore days in San Francisco. The LP contains their awesome 1979 Demo, unreleased songs from the 'American Wino' LP sessions and 1980 studio tracks from a session for Subterranean Records in SF. (Puke n Vomit Records)

Eleven songs taken from the band records released between 1982 and 1984 including the two frst singles originaly released on Andrew Eldritch of THE SISTERS OF MERCY very own Merciful Release which is not surprising as they grew up in the same scene and their sound is very close. THE MARCH VIOLETS formed in 1981 in leeds, uk, their music is cold and dark post punk driven by drum machine, mixed male and femal vocals and great melancholic guitar leads. This compilation includes Snake Dance & Crow Baby among others early gothic hits !

  • Toots Hibbert and his Maytals recording at Studio One with Clement “Sir Coxsone” Dodd at the helm and the legendary Skatalites backing, what more could you possibly want? Never Grow Old is the first full length from the Maytals and Toots’ songwriting chops were fully formed right out of the gate, with most of the tunes being co-writes with Dodd. Bob was the king for a number of reasons but Toots may very well be The best male vocalist ever from the island of Jamaica. Real authentic ska from the source. (Slop'n'Mash Records)
  • Burning Sounds Records has reissued this standout recording on CD. Toots & The Maytals’ ska-heavy 1999 album features my favorite Maytals tune, “Pressure Drop” (I was introduced to Toots by The Clash’s cover of it on Black Market). The late Frederick “Toots” Hibbert and the band set a wicked pace from their opening cover of The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me,” with inspired playing and singing throughout. This recording is a high-water mark in the Maytals’ discography.

  • In many ways The Mob were the archetypal anarcho punk band. Formed in Yeovil, Somerset in 1979 the band soon spent their time permanently on the road in a convoy of trucks before squatting in Brougham Road, Hackney – a street of houses that accommodated many punk and counter-culture types. Until their demise in 1983 they remained an integral part and a huge influence on the anarcho, traveller and free festival scenes. Their first release was the 1980 Crying Again single on their own All The Madmen label, followed later that year by the Ching cassette. 1981 saw another single the hugely popular and haunting Witch Hunt soon followed by their now legendary Crass single No Doves Fly Here, both taking anarcho punk into new musically unchartered waters. 1983 saw the release of their now legendary album Let The Tribe Increase, an album that saw them moving away from the constraints of the punk sound as they continued to push the musical boundaries. This trend continued in their epic single The Mirror Breaks. The Mob’s invlovement with the counterculture saw them playing gigs with archetypal hippies Here & Now and Androids of Mu as well as being actively involved in the Persons Unknown and Centro Iberico anarchist centres and the Black Sheep Housing Co-operative. Eventually The Mob dissolved with Joseph Porter joining Zounds before founding Blyth Power. Let The Tribe Increase includes the full album, both tracks from the Mirror Breaks 7″ and a previously unheard demo version of Stay, all professionally remastered. Packaged in a 12-page booklet it contains a band history and the events that surrounded the recording of the album by Kill Your Pet Puppy fanzine editor Alistair Livingston. (Overground Records)
  • Back in 1983 Tokyo’s NURSE released what probably is the first Japanese all female hardcore record on the cult label Incest Records (INC-002). A red 7” Flexi which showed 4 innocent looking girls on the cover but displayed an unheard amount of ferocious hard hitting hardcore punk on the 8 songs Flexi produced by Baki of EXECUTE/ GASTUNK. The Following year the almighty ADK Records added them to their roster releasing a 5 track EP (ADK-13E ) produced by label owner Tam of TYPHUS/ STALIN fame. The speed went down a notch but the rawness and aggression was still there. Sadly that record marked the end of NURSE’s recording career. Had they released an LP they’ll be heralded as highly as COMES which usually is the first band that comes to mind to most people when thinking of female fronted Japanese bands. After years of their recordings been deleted on vinyl, both singles becoming absolute staples on any Japanese punk want list and the band’s underground following growing, La Vida Es Un Mus decided to repress both 7”s on a heavy weight LP to make sure a new generation discover the excellence of one of the all time great under rated bands.

    The Outsiders were formed in Wimbledon, UK in 1976. Their 'Calling You' album was the first DIY LP released world-wide after the explosion of Buzzcocks first 7" but Outsiders's LP is the first DIY punk full length. Adrian Borland together with Bob Lawrence and Adrian James formed the band and recorded and released this first LP on the Raw Edge Label on May 1977. A brilliant combination of the first punk's steps mixed with some rock and also some hard-rock moments in the vein of The Stooges, Modern Lovers and Peter Perrett's Only Ones. (1972 Records)

  • The Plasmatics may not fit on everyone’s list of great forgotten bands, and you’d have a hard time finding anyone who calls 1980’s New Hope for the Wretched a forgotten classic. But, New Hope is a driving metal album of pure shocking filth. It sounds like Motorhead fronted by a female singer, and not just any female singer. It’s Wendy fuckin’ O. Williams. She is the queen of shock rock. Frankly, I’m not even a fan of shock rock, or generally 80’s rock at all, but the Plasmatics play it loud, reckless, and frenzied, allowing the punk in me to take hold of the sound. If you have any interest in 80’s punk or heavy metal, than New Hope for the Wretched needs to be in your collection. (Radiation Records)
  • Emanating from Boston, MA THE PROLETARIAT fused articulate Left Wing polemics with some of the most unique music to originate from the early 80s American Hardcore scene. Famously featuring on the iconic “This Is Boston Not LA” Comp, the band called it a day after only two albums and a handful of EP appearances - but have reformed after over a 30 year hiatus, and are about to drop their long awaited 3rd album ‘Move’ - and its a emphatic triumphant return! The Proletariat are considered one of the most influential punk bands of their era. Originally inspired by The Buzzcocks, The Jam, PiL, and Wire, The Proletariat tapped into the high energy hardcore punk swirling around them and infused it with art-punk excitement. When their groundbreaking debut LP Soma Holiday dropped in 1983, The Proletariat were being referred to as America's Gang of Four and a more supercharged Pop Group. They were all that and more. The intelligent anger of the band was a lifeline to many suburban rejects, young people who knew that life under Reagan wasn't right. Fast forward three decades, and things still aren't right - and THE PROLETARIAT are as essential as ever! “ Despite the passing of the decades The Proletariat have lost none of their anger or focus, it’s no coincidence that the punk scene is enjoying a renaissance right now as the political climate on both sides of the Atlantic is something that needs a coherent and intelligent soundtrack to voice opposition, with the release of Move that is exactly what The Proletariat have delivered.” – THE PUNK SITE (Boss Tuneage)
  • At last! Fred and Toody Cole (Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows) and drummer Louis Samora's ultimate pop masterpiece - In A Desperate Red. This is the last record by the Portland punk legends before moving on to a very brief country period and then Fred and Toody moving on to Dead Moon. In fact, two songs from the first Dead Moon LP hail from the same session as this LP. A true lost pop masterpiece, In A Desperate Red finds the band in an almost new wave/art punk/pop mode...just picture a more pop version of Dead Moon if you can. 6 years of work went into remixing and remastering this version - with Fred Cole twisting knobs and obsessing over it's every detail and then Greg Shadoan and Tim Stollenwerk finishing the job. One of Fred Cole's greatest records and impossible to find for many years - at last this LP is available as it was meant to be heard. Play it loud.... (Water Wing Records / Mississippi Records)
