JANDEK- Follow Your Footsteps ( 1986 loner) Label:CORWOOD VG+ cover, Mint vinyl. Jandek, alone with a guitar and a microphone, sounds like a muttering sleepwalker aimlessly plucking amplified bicycle spokes. His music is dark and gloomy; but it won't make you sad-it will make you tense and uncomfortable. Here is the Ultimate Disconnect. You love it or hate it-and for every one of the former, there are one million of the latter. A sampling of his song titles: "Painted My Teeth," "Twelve Minutes Since February 32'nd" [sic], and "Janitor's Dead." Jandek accompanies himself on acoustic or electric guitar, but for the incoherence of his zombie-like strumming, his hands might as well be accidentally brushing against the strings. His occasional wheezing harmonica approximates early Dylan having an asthma attack. Sometimes Jandek is backed by a drummer who seems unfamiliar with the kit, and who pounds away relentlessly with no ground beat. LP $55 SKU:21198

X SPURTS -THE 1977 RECORDINGS (Aussie punk)Label:LION Before their legendary debut LP, X recorded a demo session--ten tracks of incredibly tense, desperate Australian punk then somehow forgotten for the next 35 years. Absolutely essential stuff for fans of the era, coming across like nothing so much as a berserk mix of "Pink Flag", early Black Flag and the toughest early AC/DC, or Gang Of Four as played by belligerent Australian drunks. 37 years on, Ugly Pop presents the first ever vinyl appearance of this seminal document LP $17 SKU:19321
THREE SEASONS-THINGS CHANGE(vintage '70s sounding acid blues rock)COLORED VINYL Label:LION THREE SEASONS is one of today's leading vintage '70s sounding acid blues rock units.

HONEYRIDER- All Systems Go! BEach Boys/Byrds inspired) -Label:DIONYSUS /ORANGE SKY Honeyrider is a group originally from San Diego and they (at least on this album) dabble in a surf rock sound reminiscent of early Beach Boys. I wish I could drool all over myself about this album like every other review I spied about it, but to be honest listening to the 12 original tracks here in one sitting was just too taxing to keep my interest. There were moments on the album where I thought things were going to pick up, but it never happened. All the sounds washed together in a generic melodic surf rock homogenization. POP MATTERS CD $5 SKU:5161

CD $5 SKU:20673

CD $12 SKU:6227
HUNNS /DIE HUNNS / - Long Legs digipack with Duane Peters and Corey Parks -Label:DISASTER Records “Duane Peters and Corey Parks, the rude 'n' tattooed fun couple of punk, finally get to collaborate on the viciously raging Long Legs, the first Hunns album to feature the 6 foot-plus ex-Nashville Pussy vixen. She brings to the table driving basslines and an effective vocal counterpoint to Peters' snotty rasp, but the focus is still the ex-U.S. Bombs frontman and his unceasing font of bad attitude. This is catchy, dirty, ugly-as-hell punk rock” - High Bias. “I gotta tell you, Corey Parks had me from the git-go but her "hey, ho, let's go" chants on the chorus of "Burn In Hell" took it to a whole new level. Warning to the faint of heart, this is a real rock n' roll record. (Yeah, I said record, 'cause when it's this good calling it a real rock n' roll cd just doesn't seem right.) Posers may spontaneously comburst into flames. Cool, huh?” - Ear Candy CD $5 SKU:4302
HUNT & TURNER- Magic Landscape (1972 West Coast groove)-Label:LION Fabulous grooving folk rock sounds with plenty of atmosphere, first released by the much beloved Village Thing label in 1972.

The release features their LP 'Hypsterization!', originally released on Voxx in 1980, as well as the band's first EP, plus an array of previously unreleased material; a total of 37 tracks on brilliant high-energy garage. "A high-speed hurricane of mid-'60s Brit snot and MC5 revolutionary rama lama. Along with the Chesterfield Kings on the East Coast and the Crawdaddys in San Diego, the Hypstrz were the first to mine a fogotten motherlode of hopeless obsucre 45s dropped worldwide by hapless teen combos" - City Pages CD $5 SKU:4324
IGGY POP -SANTA MONICA '77 FEATURING DAVID BOWIE
Label:PROTUS Now on CD, boasting remastered sound and packed into a 4-panel digipack, these are radio broadcast live recordings of a legendary 1977 Iggy Pop performance, also featuring David Bowie! Background liners, interviews and rare photos are included. CD $15 SKU:20459
IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO - Serio 2222 - W 12 PAGE BOOKLET ( Raw-edged heavy rock JIMMY PAGE STYLE ) -Label:LION Raw-edged heavy rock, fronted by Lino Ajello's powerful electric guitars, channeling the dark, jagged energy of Jimmy Page, Adrian Gurvitz, and Jeff Beck. Il Balletto di Bronzo absorbed their influences (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Yardbirds), but moved from there into an inspired, hard-edged musical space; the band's overwhelming power and great melodies make them irresistible. ‘Un posto’ and ‘Neve Calda’ are centered around simple but effective guitar riffs. ‘Eh eh ah ah’ starts like a nice mellow ballad, but gets into a hard blues rock groove. On side two, there's the seven-minute mammoth heavy grind of ‘Incantesimo’ and the colossal ‘Missione Sirio 2222,’ almost ten minutes of droning acid rock with whirling guitars and heavy pounding drums, sandwiched between an acoustic intro and outro. No wonder Nurse With Wound cited Il Balletto di Bronzo as an influence. Digipack comes with 12-page color booklet discussing Il Balletto Di Bronzo's strange legacy. CD $10 SKU:16072
INFINITY- Collected Works 1969-70 (UK psych legends) Label:ACME Legendary UK psych outfit Infinity formed in 1969 from the ashes of “Chocolate Soup” psych faves the Flies and Cymbaline. The mission: to develop a heavy psychedelic/pop sound, and express it through complex original songs. Thanks to some funky Hammond organ, punchy guitars, and the band’s unique harmonies, Infinity were no run of the mill outfit. Upon their return to mainland England from a residency in Jersey, they joined the high-profile NEMS agency, alongside heavy hitters like Pink Floyd, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Soft Machine, and Pretty Things. In late 1969 and early 1970, following support slots with The Searchers and Marmalade, Infinity recorded original material for a proposed album, which was meant to explore “time, space, matter, energy and chicken phal, said in some circles to be so hot in a culinary sense that it's temperature approached infinity,” or so they have said, with tongue-in-cheek, we have to believe. Sadly, they broke up soon after the sessions. The good news is that the band left behind the recordings presented on this disc, which can now be enjoyed in the digital format after the passage of more than four decades! Comes with a 24-page booklet which includes band history, photos, and more, printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy. CD $10 SKU:11333
INSAINTS - Sins Of Saints- LAST COPIESLabel:DISASTER Records There was a time when punk was dangerous, and this album is a reminder of this lost era. This is a 20 track anthology of hardcore/street-punk rock from the late '80s, early 90's, by this legendary San Francisco band. Led by now-deceased fetish model/dominatrix MARIAN ANDERSON on vocals, and with DANIEL DELEON (CALAVERA, the DEEP EYNDE) on guitar, the INSAINTS pushed the punk rock envelope further than any other artist before or since. MARIAN sexual stage antics has become the stuff of legends, but the INSAINTS were also a great band, and this album proves it. “This twenty track anthology, varying between hardcore and pop punk, consists of the band's '93 studio sessions, their double seven inch split with the Diesel Queens, demos and some live material from '90 and '92. The Insaints were one of the Bay Area's most infamous punk bands of the last ten to fifteen years and offered a raw soundtrack to the sad, desperate, and often violent realities of inner-city life and childhood abuse, which became codified as redemption when "play acted" onstage by lead singer Marian Anderson during their live shows. Not for the easily offended. You've been warned. Rest in peace, sweetheart. - Dave Negative / Amoeba review CD $5 SKU:4467
INTERKOSMOS-HYPNOTIZER(swirly psych acid madness-Label:SULATRON Sprawling space sounds tell stories of far galaxies - the music fuses single intstruments into each other and the sound gets a swirly acid madness. This is psychedelic music without being bound to certain stylistic directions: what matters is the flow. A wonderful soundtrack for a journey to the far out vastnesses of the inner cosmos. Interkosmos was founded in 2008 by Sula Bassana (Electric Moon, Zone Six, Krautzone) on bass, Pablo Carneval (formerly Electric Moon, The Blowing Lewinsky) on drums und Sergio Ceballos (RIP KC) on guitar. CD $14 SKU:20244

IVORY- ST (ultra rare 1968 psych gem ) mini lp slv - Label:GEAR FAB Yes, the great 1968 recording by this virtually unknown band that modeled their musicafter the sounds of The Jefferson Airplane; in fact, it was produced by the Airplane's great genius himself:Mr. Al Schmitt!!

JACOBITES / NIKKI SUDDEN-God Save Us Poor Sinners (mid 70s Rolling Stones/ Faces style) -Label:BOMP Records Nikki Sudden's third album with the Jacobites, in collaboration with guitarist/singer Dave Kusworth. Beautiful songs of bittersweet life stories, a waterfall of guitars, and carries the unmistakable mark and sound of Nikki Sudden. Nikki’s first band Swell Maps has been one of the main influences of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore. Members of REM recorded an album as his backup band in 1992 and the Lemonheads, among others, covered one of his songs. This CD has four different tracks from the European version, and different artwork. CD $10 SKU:2056
JAMES LEG- Blood on the Keys (heavy kick as punk s blues rock former BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES)CD Label:ALIVE This is without doubt some of the rawest soul/blues/punk rock ‘n’ roll and coolest Fender Rhodes electric piano playing you’ll ever hear, along with the dirtiest Whiskey-smoked growl that has ever been put to tape. Yes, folks, this album is a winner. It’s dirtier and louder than most other things, and just fucking awesome. It’s the future, the past and present, all rolled up into a tight joint, ready to smoke, get high and just rock the fuck out. There are no disappointments here. – I-94 BAR CD $10 SKU:17876
JAMES LEG ( BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES)- Solitary Pleasure (Heavy blues rock ) - Label:ALIVE DIGIPAK WITH DIGITAL BOOKLET Blues-wailing keyboard man James Leg is best known as the lead singer and organ and piano pumper with the heavy blues rock band the Black Diamond Heavies; James Leg, growler, shouter, composer, and Fender Rhodes finger-f*cker, of the BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES, steps out with some friends for more songs of hedonistic excess, crazy ass women, and Southern salvation. On "Solitary Pleasure" he is joined by longtime friend and Cincinnati heavy hitter, Andy Jet Jody (The Gazelles, Pearlene, The Long Gones, The Customs, Oxford Cotton, Barrence Whitfield and The Savages) on drums, and a host of guests on guitar, bass and backing vocals. "Solitary Pleasure" was recorded in December 2010 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, during a record cold snap, in the oldest standing church in Rutherford County, now the home of an all analog studio called Grand Palace Studio. The result was then rushed up to Detroit and mixed by Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders. Heavy conditions give birth to heavy records. Rock and Soul all night long. CD $10 SKU:12657

JARVIS STREET REVIEW- Mr Oil Man ( 70s acid psych) - Label:PACEMAKER Their lone Columbia label LP from 1971 leaves no one untouched by the band’s sheer avalanche of psychedelic heaviness, wasted acid leads and harrowing vocals. Every song is laced with a conviction born from the physical landscape they called home CD $10 SKU:14084
JENSEN, DICK - ST (70s soul pop ) - Label:BIG BREAK A must have for all Soul, Pop & Easy Listening fans out there. Immersing himself on native Hawaiian sounds and the Pop, Soul, Country and Rock music he heard on radio, it wasn’t long before Blue-Eyed Soul vocalist Dick Jensen began to catch people's attention across the music world; he was arguably the greatest music entertainer to hail from the Pacific paradise islands of Hawaii. After spending the ‘60’s and early ‘70’s wowing crowds from Las Vegas to Mexico City and his native Hawaii, where he supported The Rolling Stones on their 1966 US tour (his exuberant dance moves were likened to James Brown and Jackie Wilson), and releasing a number of well received records on various labels Jensen found himself signed to the legendary Philadelphia International Records in 1972. The following year, backed by the unstoppable PIR house band MFSB, Jensen released this debut with the label to an initially muted response. The breezy 'Penny For Your Thoughts' opens the album and immediately informs the listener that this isn’t going to be a completely typical PIR platter. The classic PIR sound makes its first appearance on 'I Don’t Want To Cry,' originally a hit for Chuck Jackson in 1961. Jensen’s version swoops and soars thanks to his passionate delivery. The real gem on this self-titled album however is 'New York City’s A Lonely Town,' a wonderfully soulful ballad that Jensen really sinks his teeth into. '32nd Street' found an audience in the UK where it was released as a single. With a musical setting that would have made The Stylistics cry with glee, Jensen wraps his booming voice around the heart-breaking melody, turning the sweat of his performance into tears of loneliness. BBR is very proud to bring you DICK JENSEN, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes. CD $5 SKU:20667
JEREMY DORMOUSE - The Toad Recordings (Legendary Canadian hippie psych rarity from 1967-68 w liners & original cover art )-Label:VOID/HALLUCINATIONS (USA) Legendary Canadian hippie psych rarity from 1967-68. One of the hardest to find album collectibles there is. This recording also features a very young Lynda Squires (Reign Ghost) and many other Canadian notables of the day. Original cover art is here as well as liner notes. The master came from the band and sounds great, with male/female interplay throughout. Standout cut is 'Believe Me', a folk gem. There’s also a haunting cover of Leonard Cohen’s 'Suzanne' that is right there as well. This project is also related to the 'Rejects' LP, another lost Canadian rarity. CD $10 SKU:15699
FRISCH, HANS - Levende Opjekten Sjooo (1969 Batshit crazy acidhead) Label:GOLDEN PAVILION Mutant Sounds blog says
Batshit crazy acidhead bedazzlement from the heyday of the Dutch counterculture, with the free rock/free improv spirit summoning unleashed by this band of furry freaks begging comparison with the earliest and most shamanistically summoning wing of the Krautrock continuum from Amon Duul to Limbus 4 to Anima. It's a stance which makes their sound far more musically prescient and less time-bound than most anything else emanating from Holland at the time; their unfettered roundelays of bongos, flutes, horns, percussive clatter and wailing avant vocals offering direct pointers toward the sort of sounds currently embodied by the Finnish free rock and improv scene. The pics of half naked Dionysian abandon enclosed and the knowledge that part of this edition was seized by the Dutch police elevate the actions of these cultural provocateurs to an even higher level. An album to be relished.
Sleeve consists of two seperate sheets.
Inserts: photographs of the performance, sheets.
Part of the edition was confiscated by Dutch police. LP $25 SKU:21098

THURSDAY’S CHILDREN- 1965-1969 Restrospective of Texas garage band - LAST COPIES Label:VOXX 200.052 - LAST COPIES Originally known as The Druids when they formed in Houston, Texas in 1964 they changed their name to Thursdays Children during 1965. The first 45 was quite an accessible punk affair, whilst their second and third were more British-influenced. After one final and disappointing rock and roll 45, drugs and the draft had accounted for many of the band and they regrouped as The Pointing Hand Group. This retrospective album on Voxx includes material spanning their career from 1965-69 with 45s, unissued and live material. It's the best source for their recorded output. -- [Vernon Joynson, Fuzz Acid & Flowers]. LP $15 SKU:7969
TITUS OATES - LAST COPIES Jungle Lady (Texas 74 private press psych rarity)-Label:OUT-SIDER *Insert with detailed liner notes and photos First ever legit vinyl reissue of this progressive hard-rock private pressing from Texas, 1974.Excellent dual guitars, keyboards, melodic vocals, West Coast touches…Think Allman Brothers, early ZZ Top, Wishbone Ash, Homer...Top notch pro-sounding recording and superb musicianship. “Jungle Lady” saw the light in two different pressings: the original white label LIPS vinyl from 1974 is the first pressing, and the red LIPS label is a remix done later in Nashville, possibly around 1975. This Out-sider reissue is taken from the remix version, as it was always believed to be “hotter” than the original pressing. One of the classics since the early days or rare psych records lists, championed by influential tastemakers such as Paul Major. *Master tape sound LP $18 SKU:17711
TOM THUMB-ESSENTIAL RECORDINGS 1966-197ground breaking prog rock Label:BREAK-A-WAY During the period 1966-1970 two incarnations of Tom Thumb, a band from Wellington, New Zealand, cut eight singles and one ground breaking prog rock EP. This LP collects the essential tracks, including excellent fuzzy covers of The 13th Floor Elevators, Small Faces, Alan Bown and Jim Pepper. The tracks from the 1970 EP 'The Ludgate Hill', New Zealand's first ever progressive rock record, are also featured. Presented with rare photos, this LP is a treat for fans of 'that kiwi '60s sound', which ranges from garage to psyche. An awesome release! LP $16 SKU:18899

TRANS LUV AIRLINES-VRIJE VAL (60s 70s style fuzz reverb) -Label:DOWN AT THE NIGHTCLUB After their limited edition 7" debut 'Suiker Mij', Trans Luv Airlines now returns with an album full of love for the '60s and '60s love. Drenched in fuzz, reverb and healing simplicity. Fly with TLA into a world inhabited by dog catchers, masochists and half deads, threatened by liars and egocentric talking machines. Trans Luv Airlines offers Musical Comfort in lukewarm times. All in Dutch language! The album is mixed by Solo Moderna and comes with a luxury lyrics text sheet. Limited to 400 copies. LP $22 SKU:20556
TREE PEOPLE- Human Voices ( late '70s Oregon hippie folk band)Label:GUERSSEN RECORDS (SPAIN) his is the second album from Oregon's The Tree People, the late '70s Oregon-based predecessors to the ongoing new folk movement in the USA. You already know about their 1979 debut album and you know it's a masterpiece, but did you know about their second album recorded in 1984? Surely not, especially because it was a cassette-only release with a very short print-run. The sound quality on this reissue is splendid, and the music itself is equally as good, if not better than, their self-titled debut and is a real must for any folk and psych-folk lover.

WHITE NOISE SOUND- St- w Pete Kember of Spacemen 3 -RED VINYL LAST COPIESLabel:ALIVE WHITE NOISE SOUND is the eponymous debut from the Swansea/Cardiff, Wales-based sextet. Completed with the help of Pete Kember (Spacemen 3, Spectrum and E.A.R) and magician Cian Ciaran (Super Furry Animals), the album is is a psychedelic dream-piece, and the realization of a band conjuring their own particular wall-of-sound -- at once relentlessly pulsating and blissed-out."In this day and age of ironic and increasingly obtuse band names, a band like White Noise Sound is refreshing. Like the heyday of generic foodstuffs, what you see on the label is exactly what you get here (...) WNS has been influenced by earsplitting bands from both sides of the Atlantic, including Velvet Underground, Suicide, Jesus And Mary Chain and of course the aforementioned Spacemen 3." - MOKB
"Blending corrosive feedback, pulsating krautrock rhythms, floating vocals and wall-of-sound guitars, the track (Sunset) builds and builds into a perfectly judged ear-shattering, blissed out climax." - The Mad Mackerel
"If you're gonna (essentially) cover Spacemen 3's 'Revolution' in 2010, good god this is the way to do it." – Arthur LP $16 SKU:14332

WITCHES- A Haunted Person's Guide To.(.ltd ed yellow). psych LAST 5 COPIES!Label:ALIVE YELLOW VINYL LTD. EDITION -"The best band that you never heard" of is a term that is commonly thrown around with much ado but in the case of The Witches it may well be true. Born in Detroit in 1996 from the mind of bass player Troy Gregory (Dirtbombs, Killing Joke) and with the help of fellow Michigan natives John Nash (Electric Six, LCD Soundsystem) on guitar, and producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Von Bondies) on electric twelve-string, The Witches went on to record five amazing albums between 1996 and 2006, with the help of a revolving line-up of Michigan musicians, before vanishing into thin air. "A Haunted Person's Guide To The Witches" compiles material from the band's five albums, and is a comprehensive introduction to the band's unique sound.
