DEE RANGERS - DOWN IN THE PLAYGROUND (uptempo powerpop, tuff garage with fuzz guitars)Label:SUCKER'S CHOICE Their 2010 release on CD. This might be The Dee Rangers' poppiest album, but it also includes some of the tuffest tracks they ever recorded. This is a 14-track album filled with uptempo powerpop, tuff garage with fuzz guitars, and what do you say about that supercool organ-dominated instrumental? CD $17 SKU:26308

MIXED UP MINDS - Pt 12 (British rock and pop from the late 1960s and early 1970s)Label:PAST & PRESENT (UK) 'Mixed Up Minds' investigates the overlooked underbelly of. Part 12 of this intrepid series captures a further glimpse of the verbal rumblings from British suburbia with twenty melodic musings from a variety of unsung wonders whose place in the British pop phenomena is now safely secure. These professionally remastered sounds come with expansive liners and rare archival photographs COMP CD $17 SKU:26270

STRANGE CREATURES -The Best of REbels Vol TWO- 15 ear Bashing Greats (PEBBLES/ NUGGETS STYLE) Label:RAVING POP BLAST! Inspired by the 1980s collection 'Pebbles' which collected together '60s garage punk bands, most of whom would have vanished without trace if not for 'Pebbles' unearthing them and turning them into essential 'must haves', for lovers of raw, often cheaply recorded, guitar based music. 'Rebels' brings together like minded bands/artists from all over the world, who are doing it for love, with no glancing towards what's popular, or what the current musical fashions dictate. So here we have 16 bands, all different but all with a burning desire to play their own kind of rock and roll. From the garage '60s vibe of Leeds based The See No Evils, the wah-wah grooves of The DC Spectres and from Belgium, Thee Martian Boyfriends and Vice Barons to the Joe Meek style twangs of Diamond Daddios and the mod-flavour of (ex-Prisoners) Galileo 7, (ex-Makin' Time) The Deep Six and The Hurricanes (who bring back memories of The Purple Hearts). Bristol's very own Joe James & His Pariahs, conjure up an authentic mid '60s freakbeat sound, while also from Bristol, Rauschenberg get all space-out. The Jack Cades offer up their 'reverb on 10' take on The Byrds jangle sound, and two young 14 year olds from Devon -The Lysping Mynor Byrds- mash up a surf classic with a Clash solo! And lucky for us someone pressed record on the cassette recorder! The self declared 'Best Live Band In Britain', London Based The Fallen Leaves (with drummer Brett Ascott formally of The Chords) tell us the tale of the 'Motorcycle Girl' in an exclusive live recording. Meanwhile Coventry's Sawdust Caesars have been dragged back from the grave screaming with their lo-fi-acid-pop-psych, and the don't move or you'll miss it 'Flower Pop Show'. While from up in Scotland we have the most wonderful The Nettelles who mix their garage punk with a kind of lo-fi-C86 rumble and back down to Taunton where you'll possibly bump into Palooka 5, as they'll most likely be wearing camouflage gear! Play this loud, and often! COMP CD $19 SKU:26272

YOUR FACE IS A MESS-THE BEST OF REBELS VOL. 4- Label:RAVING POP BLAST! Another fantastic collection of underground bands playing garage rock, pop-psych, modernist, surf, R&B, rock & roll, indie scuzz etc. Inspired by the 'Pebbles' series of unknown '60s bands, this is the fourth in the series, and as always any profits raised are donated to charities.

COMP LP $32 SKU:26144

CHILD OF PANOPTES (60s style British freakbeat, popsike and American garage-psych-rock. )Label:SOUNDFLAT After their debut single 'Walk With Me', Child Of Panoptes present their debut full-length album. The band embraces British freakbeat, popsike and American garage-psych-rock. The album includes other-worldly coverversions of songs by THE Vipps, Apple, The CLouds, The Fairytales and Elias Rahbani alongside the musicians' own compositions. Subtle jazzy elements combined with a groovy hammond organ, dreamy reverbing vocals and a cool beat create a dreamlike, slightly sinister, yet catchy psychedelic '60s mood. LP $30 SKU:26267

KALEIDOSCOPE-Faintly Blowing (60s Brit psych Label:MAGIC BOX Originally issued in 1969, comes in replica gatefold sleeve. For their second album, Kaleidoscope delivered something an awful lot like their debut, a body of pleasant, trippy, spacy raga-rock, with the main difference that they pushed the wattage a little harder on their instruments -- they'd also been performing pretty extensively by the time of their second long-player, and a lot of the music here was material that they'd worked out on-stage in very solid versions. The result is a record just as pretty as their debut but a little punchier and more exciting within each song than their first album. The title track is also one of the more beautiful psychedelic effects pieces of its period, while 'A Story From Tom Bitz' is crunchy folk-rock, '(Love Song) For Annie' represents a more lyrical brand of druggy folk-rock, and 'If You So Wish' shifts over to Moody Blues-style ballad territory circa late 1968 and early 1969. LP $32 SKU:25855

OUTCASTS (N. IRELAND) -SELF CONSCIOUS OVER YOU (Legendary 1977 Belfast punks)Label:RADIATION Legendary Belfast punk band The Outcasts formed in 1977, playing a mix of originals and covers. After signing with local punk label Good Vibrations for the 'Just Another Teenage Rebel' single, their popularity was boosted by airplay via John Peel, paving the way for their debut LP, 'Self Conscious Over You.' Full of teenage angst and romantic fixations, there's a nod to social issues on 'The Cops Are Comin',' but the album mostly deals with the agonies and ecstasies of teenage life. Capturing the band at their rawest and most unfiltered, there are jagged edges galore and hints of greater glories-worth revisiting for all fans of Belfast punk. Comes on red vinyl. LP $34 SKU:26132


BLODWYN PIG - THE LIVE SESSIONS (70s prog) Label:LONDON CALLING Blodwyn Pig, live in session for John Peel, as peformed in London, 1970. In late 1968 Mick Abrahams left Jethro Tull to form Blodwyn Pig. Combining his sensitive guitar playing with powerful horns, they became one of the country's most respected progressive rock bands. This set gathers two superb radio broadcasts from 1970, featuring different line-ups on a selection of the band's material. They are presented here together with background notes and images.

GLITTER WIZARD -OPERA VILLAINS(GLAM? Stoner rock? Psych? Prog?)Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Are they glam? Are they metal? Stoner rock? Psych? Prog? For over a decade, people have been trying to pin down Glitter Wizard but this San Francisco band refuses to be pigeonholed. Pulling influences from the entire heavy rock canon, G Wiz combines scorching guitar riffs and spaced out synths to creates something familiar, yet entirely new and weird. 'Opera Villains' brings the heat that we've come to expect from the band but adds a layer of dramatism that we haven't heard before CD $14 SKU:21219

MUNSON ,ALAN -First light (70s Calif laid back psych) Label:GUERSSEN And here’s the last of the 70’s works by our friend Munson! This one got released in 1979, again in small quantities, on the Parallax label in California. The “First light” album doesn’t easily fit into a music category box. The songs range from psych rock, to some fairly laid back folk-rock, and even a song with a country rock feel. Instruments played on the record include electric and acoustic guitars, electric bass and drums. Lead solos are all played on electric guitar; a clean sound on the acoustic based songs and guitar effects were used on the psych rock songs. Strong lead vocals and background harmony vocals, making this another excellent album as a result. Also one unreleased bonus track is added, all remastered from the original tapes. First time ever reissue as well; comes with a booklet, and outer carton slimcase CD $10 SKU:20126

Highlights include the atmospheric 'Ice Maiden', the spaced-out 'She Paints Strange Pictures' and their notorious tour de force, the lengthy three-part 'McAlistairess Phantoms'. Plenty of rare band shots, items of memorabilia and detailed sleeve notes included in this long lost forgotten classic. CD $10 SKU:21108

FLIED EGG - DR. SIEGEL'S FRIED EGG SHOOTING MACHINE (1972 psych prog) -Label:COSMIC ROCK 1972 debut album by cultish Japanese combo! This unbelievable psychedelic/progressive rock band came together the same year after Shigeru Narumo and Hiro Tsunoda shelved their project Strawberry Path (they had a sole album release in 1971 and eventually a 7 inch). Their sound is pure adrenaline, a stormy hard blues kinda thing, with heavy Hammond organ riffs and more than a freakbeat influence. Partially informed by contemporaries, British bands like Deep Purple or Uriah Heep, they opened to more gentle and sophisticated arrangements in the soulful ballad 'I Love You' with an epic string section. The hypothetical single 'Plastic Fantasy' could have been an alternative dancefloor classic with that Traffic/Brian Auger feel in the end. LP $30 SKU:25791
