CHARGE (UK) -ST (Legendary heavy 1973 prog rock)Label:SEELIE COURT Legendary heavy progressive rock concept album that includes the epic side long 'Child Of Nations' suite, and unlike many anti-war songs band leader Dave Ellis had direct experience of the subject having been on active service with the British Army in the Far East.

MYTHICA -A WALLET OF WINDS (1971 Brit folk rock) Label:SEELIE COURT Mythica made a one-off pressing in 1971 and they also recorded for the BBC. Their unissued LP is a significant find for fans of the British folk rock Underground of the early seventies. To be filed alongside C.O.B., Dulcimer, Trees, Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention, The Woods Band and Tudor Lodge. Some striking all out Hippie Bohemian colour photos of the band from the time illustrate the cover art, plus a repro of the original acetate sleeve, and sleeve notes by the band.

PARAMETER- GALACTIC RAMBLE (1971 prog folk Syd Barrett style) Label:SEELIE COURT Stellar progressive psychedelic folk rock with a huge Syd Barrett influence and lashings of distorted fuzz guitar psychedelic ballads. It's unknown how many were really made in 1971 on the custom Deroy label. 'Galactic Ramble' is a ramble through the experimental minds and philosophies of early seventies underground youth, and born in the morass of early Pink Floyd, Incredible String Band, Cream and Donovan. Recommended especially to anyone aching for more music like Syd Barrett's 'The Madcap Laughs'. CD $19 SKU:25171

HUMAN EXPRESSION - LOVE AT A PSYCHEDELIC VELOCITY-(great psych garage rock from 1966-1968)Label:MOI J'CONNAIS Repress of the compilation originally released with Moi J'connais Records and Mississippi Records in 2013. Unbelievably great psychedelic garage rock from 1966-1968. Including songs written by Mars Bonfire, their material is up there with the 13th Floor Elevators, Love and the Seeds in quality, but with an outsider edge to it. Human Expression was a tough as nails deep heavy group who, in spite of releasing three cool singles, never got the exposure they deserved back in the day. A few songs leaked out on vinyl on psych comps ('Optical Sound', 'Love At Psychedelic Velocity' and 'Reading Your Will') but the rest has not been on vinyl until now. Beautiful singer/songwriter ballads and frantic rockers sit side by side, creating a truly great lost classic of the 1960's. LP $28 SKU:25818

KING BEE -ST (1979-81 unreleased and live )Label:DOOMTOWN SOUNDS More than 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING! Doomtown Sounds, in collaboration with Toody Cole and the surviving members of the band, is proud to present the release of the King Bee album, containing a dozen unreleased studio and live songs recorded between 1977 and 1981. King Bee was Fred Cole's late '70s band, and their music occupied an important position in Fred's development as a songwriter. This often-overlooked part of Fred's career saw him combining elements of his '60s roots with this new sound called punk rock, and it was this synthesis of styles which led to the Rats, and, eventually, to the creation of Dead Moon. These missing gems are being made available here for the first time ever, recovered from archived tapes, carefully restored and mastered. Compiled from master reels and cassette tapes that had been stored in a box for more than 40 years, this album contains more than a dozen unreleased studio and live tracks, as well as the three tracks from the band's 1978 7" EP.

Alberto Vanasco Jr. (Mandhy) resumes his musical tale with twelve tracks written between 1968 and 1978. Recorded with the analogue essence and sound of the 70s, using vintage instruments like Farfisa and Hammond organ, and fuzz guitar. Features Argentine rock legends Nexus as the backing band.

SEX PISTOLS - SPUNK: THE DEMOS 1976-1977-Label:RADIATION In the history of punk, the Sex Pistols reign supreme; the anarchic quartet changed the history of popular culture forever with their caustic rupture of rock, a mixture of shock and awe that gave two fingers to the establishment, kick-starting a musical revolution. Recorded a few months before their 'Never Mind The Bollocks' debut, 'Spunk' is a revelation, raw demos cut in late 76 and early 77 by producer Dave Goodman, with Glen Matlock's bass far more melodic than what Sid Vicious cut on 'Bollocks'; this edition has bonus demos of 'Anarchy' and 'Pretty Vacant' cut at Denmark Street, as well as an unedited 'No Fun.' Absolutely crucial!

STEAMPACKET -ST ('60s freakbeat/garage fuzz)-Label:BUSY BEE Stockholm-based Steampacket was formed in the autumn of 1965. After three gigs in Sweden in the spring of 1966, the band went on touring in England, discovered that there was already a Steampacket which included Rod Stewart, changed its name to The Longboatmen but called themself Steampacket II back in Sweden.
The band released eight singles but oddly enough never an LP. Today, the singles are collectibles and 'Take Her Any Time' one of the best '60s freakbeat/garage fuzz tracks ever. Now Steampacket's gems are coming together for the first time on LP. Studio recordings, live recordings and previously unreleased material with Mikael Ramel. LP $30 SKU:25724
THANES -ROH UND LEBENDIG NICHT IN KOLN (60s style garage beat folk punk pop )Label:SOUNDFLAT The Thanes have been playing their 60s style garage beat folk punk po'p and odd little forays into the realms of the psychedelic for more than three decades now. The boys from Edinburgh have long become true garage-beat-legends who now release yet another album. After their performance at the Soundflat festival had been cancelled due to the pandemic, they gathered for a jam session and recorded that instead. The result is this raw `n alive studio party made in homage to the live albums from the likes of The kingsmen, The Premiers and the 13th FLoor Elevators. LP $25 SKU:25726
VELVET ATTACK -VISIONS FROM INNER SPACE (60s based popsike)Label:SOUNDFLAT Velvet Attack are a '60s based indie-rock-group from Dortmund, Germany formed in November 2018 to play velvet popsike melodies boosted by prog/kraut educated guitar approach. The five members have been part of different musical projects (Jelly Planet, Damo Suzuki Band, Astra Kid, The Cheeks), which is reflected in their multi-layered, refined sound. On one hand, they stick to the classic combination of jangling Rickenbacker sounds with fine vocal harmonies as presented by groups from the past, let's say from The Byrds to The Bangles but on the other hand their rock attitude is rooted with punk prototypes to psychedelic from the sixties.
