ATTENTAT-PUNKHJÄRTA (70s punk wave band with new album) Label:BUSY BEE Attentat were pioneers in the first Swedish punk wave in the late 1970s, along with bands like Kriminella Gitarrer, KSMB, Göteborg Sound and Ebba Grön. After more than 40 years on the Swedish rock scene, Attentat has never felt more relevant. With their 2019 album 'Punkhjärta' (Punk Heart) producer
Mattias Glavå (Dungen, The Amazing, Ice Age and others) has carved out a cleaner more raw sound but the fighting spirit, energy and sing along refrains remain. Attentat are still set on changing the future without forgetting their past and in 2019 they are better, smarter, stronger and more fun than ever. They have nothing left to prove, but still do. The day our planet is flawless Attentat will quit. But that day seems far away. CD $17 SKU:25848

CRYSTALLINE - AXE MUSIC booklet with unseen pictures and liner notes by Paul Cross -Label:GUERSSEN First reissued by Guerssen in 2012 as LP with CD and out of print for many years, here's a new, improved CD repress of this UK psych holy grail. Axe (known also as Axe Music and finally Crystalline by the time they recorded their rare acetate) were an obscure British psych band led by acid-rock guitar player extraordinaire Tony Barford and graced by Vivienne Jones' ethereal vocals. The band hailed from Northampton (home also of their mates Dark of 'Dark Round The Edges' fame). In 1970, they recorded a demo album of which only 12 copies were pressed as a demo acetate. Here's a straight reissue of this legendary artifact, as the previous "reissue" on the Kissing Spell label from 1993 and credited to Axe was altered without the band consent and included newly edited tracks, artificial echo/phasing effects, altered song titles... Here you'll find the acetate recording on its pure form: 100% unadulterated heavy psych and acid-rock sounds full of raw, fuzzed-out guitars and dreamy female vocals. Four impressive original songs plus a long, psyched to the max cover of Love's 'A House Is Not A Motel' which has to be heard to be believed.
Carefully remastered from an original acetate copy in 24-bit. Unfortunately, no masters survived and no 100% clean copies are known to exist of the original acetates, but you'll get the best result for the possibilities. In fact they've managed to improve the sound a bit over the first edition from 2012. Comes with new artwork (the original acetate came in blank sleeve), booklet with unseen pictures and liner notes by Paul Cross (Sweet Floral Albion). CD $19 SKU:25796

GOLDEN BOYS- Electric Wolfman (digipack )Texas pop with extra booklet. -Label:ALIEN SNATCH The newest album from Austin, TX rockers, GOLDEN BOYS, is a shambolic collection of organ driven moonshine howling (Electric Wolfmen), folky pop nuggets here is nothing like a perfectly titled record. On Thee Electric Wolfman, the latest from the Golden Boys, this five-piece doesn’t so much scream beer-soaked obscenities as much as they howl them. These 11 rollicking tunes don’t just get the party started, they continue it long into the night. There’s a crusty underbelly to tracks like “She Said It” and “I’m Black and White” that showcase the Golden Boys’ ability to make jangly, harmonic pop tunes sound as haunting as your worst morning after.Taking further cues from Beggar’s Banquet-era Stones on “Old Man’s Coat”, a remarkably mature number, the Golden Boys prove that not only are they capable of sonically evolving, but they still possess the formula for having a good time. It’s an uncomplicated listen, but there is nothing simplistic about it. The scariest thing about Thee Electric Wolfman is probably how good it actually is. POP MATTERS CD $17 SKU:11371

WHEELS ON FIRE --LIAR, LIAR (garage-y-keyboard driven power pop/rocknroll )Label:ALIEN SNATCH Welcome to the Land of the Haunted Houses!

BEAT BEAT BEAT - LIVING IN THE FUTURE (Japanese garage psych pop)Label:ALIEN SNATCH! Great bloomy garage psych pop out of Nippon JAPAN .

This album is a rSick, savage songs bursting from the white hot criminal underbelly of Atlanta. Atlanta is exploding with great new punk rock bands. making up one of the most vibrant, talked about punk scenes in the USA. The claims are rised rightly - we present one of them, BEAT BEAT BEAT is rough classic punk group sharing members with the CARBONAS and FRANTIC. They got the key to meld 77 punk hooks with the energy and forward drive of early 80's hardcore, complete with attention-to-detail, power pop songwriting skills. They have that certain down under murder punk feeling. Think SAINTS meet SUICIDE COMMANDOS. BEAT BEAT BEAT follows up their insanely well received 7" on Atlantas own Douchemaster Records and two big US tours (the most recent of which with The CARBONAS) with this, their debut full length. Recorded in Atlanta by Dave Carbona, "Living In The Future" unleashes 12 sleazy, swaggering punk and slices of perfection on to the undeserving masses, including a stunning cover of Australian legends The FUN THINGS "When The Birdmen Fly". The Sound is dry, stripped down with the perfect on-the-first-look undercooled mix of high-pitched melodic (three!) guitars, snotty vocals from somewhere in the back and great up-tempo rhythm section having an subversive impact on listeners. There isnt a big sound and beefy bass lines but distinctive vocals and you hear every hook of the great songwriting. And, it gets better with every listen! CD is out on fellows label DIRTNAP Records in the USA. Vinyl is on 180g virgin vinyl.eal treat for pop, psych and garage fans. LP $19 SKU:25911

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.

WILSON, BLIND OWL-ST ( Canned Heat -psych blues )Label:MISSISSIPPI/SUT Second press. Blind Owl Wilson was a truly great guitarist and vocalist whose deep well of psychedelic blues songs were buried amongst the catalog of major label rockin' blues band Canned Heat. Blind Owl served as Canned Heat's guitarist and would chip in a song here and there as a front man. A couple of those songs became huge hits in the '60s - 'Going Up The Country' and 'On The Road Again'. Blind Owl's songs for Canned Heat stood in stark contrast to the bands blustery blues rock - his was a gentle and nuanced voice and the themes of his song were all about personal heartbreak, grasping for cosmic understanding, and ecological justice. Here we have an LP of Blind Owl's songs from Canned Heat's records - left to sit alone and take you somewhere unexpected. Blind Owl's personal vision quest can be heard throughout these songs. 'Poor Moon' tells the tale
of Alan's heartbreak as he watches the moon being misguidedly bombed by man, 'My Time Ain't Long' confronts death, 'Parthenogen In 3 Blind Owls' and 'Parthenogen Childs End' take you to the psychedelic limits, and oh yes, we have the hit tunes on here too. Co-release with Sutro Park records.A true psychedelic masterpiece! Black vinyl LP in black and white jacket with miniature two color booklet. Limited second pressing! LP $25 SKU:25048
