FEATURED LABEL RELEASES

BONNEVILLES

The Bonnevilles are the 200 proof rocking real deal. – CHATTANOOGA PULSE

This great album deserves to be heard far and wide. – FEAR AND LOATHING

The group carries on their signature sound with a hint of lo-fi 1960s rock, reminiscent of groups like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. – PASTE MAGAZINE

If these are the “Dirty Photographs” they are prepared to show the world, then goodness only knows what they’ve got behind closed doors on the tour bus. We probably don’t need to know, just revel in the glory of this instead. – MAXIMUM VOLUME MUSIC

GOSPELBEACH

Whether you call it power pop, folk rock or alt-country (at times all of these terms apply) GospelbeacH are bursting with melody, with terrific harmonies to boot. This is straight-up genius song writing: honest, brilliantly played and superbly produced. – LOUDER THAN WAR (9/10 review)

If there’s a more perfect song for the Summer of ’17 than “Hangin’ On,” I don’t want to know about it. Here, Rademaker and his gang (which includes Jason Soda abetting Rademaker on guitars and vocals, Jonny Niemann on piano, organ, and mellotron, and Rademaker’s co-songwriter Trevor Beld Jiminez; plus a host of guests from the Beachwood Sparks, Wilco, and Eels extended families) have crafted a timeless tune destined to be on mixtapes throughout the hot months and beyond. – BLURT MAGAZINE

Aesthetically, what sets this one apart from their debut, Pacific Surf Line, is the sound: more 70’s FM rock than 60’s AM gold. Rademaker’s writing continues to evolve becoming tighter and poppier with a warmer more classic rock feel, nodding heavily towards early power poppers Cheap Trick, Big Star and fellow Floridian ex-pat Tom Petty. Not to worry, those sweet vocal harmonies are still there (along with the cascading guitar solos)… – AQUARIUM DRUNKARD

Steeped in the golden sounds of Buffalo Springfield, and particularly Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman’s contributions to The Byrds, while the LP title evokes rock music’s 1967 high tide, the band far beyond mere revivalists and the pool of influences runs wider than rock’s fulcrum year. – BEARDED MAGAZINE


LAST COPY! Selling at near cost.

BO STREET RUNNERS -EXILE ON BO STREET(brilliant 1964-1966 recordings by legendary band) -Label:MUNSTER Collected on 12-inch vinyl for the first time are the brilliant 1964-1966 recordings by British r&b/mod-legends The Bo Street Runners. With a line-up that included legendary musicians s.a. Mick Fleetwood, Mike Patto and Tim Hinkley, the band released a number of singles on Decca, Oak and Columbia Records. Though back in the day the band didn't manage to hit the charts, these 7-inches have become essential releases for later generations of genre addicts. LP $22 SKU:19351

BOBKAT'65-THIS LONELY ROAD (60s garage style)Label:GET HIP Inspired by mid-1960s American "Teenbeat-Kiddie Garage" records, three friends from Asturias in Northern Spain decide to form a band. Even their name is unique, inspired by the Bobkat model guitar manufactured by the Harmony Company in the mid-60s. LP $10 SKU:18900

BRACKETT,ALAN LEE-Peanut Butter Conspiracy Theories: Lost Songs 1967-1968-Label:OUT-SIDER Out-Sider present Peanut Butter Conspiracy Theories: Lost Songs 1967-1968, previously unreleased recordings by The Peanut Butter Conspiracy's main-man, Alan Lee Brackett. Mostly written and recorded in 1967, when PBC were at their fame peak, Alan explores a number of different styles, encompassing fuzzed-out garage numbers, sunshine pop, folk rock and full blown psychedelia. Including ahead of its time garage-psychedelic, DIY homemade recordings on which Alan plays all instruments by himself plus pro-sounding studio cuts. Although best known as a member of The Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Alan Brackett enjoyed a long career in the music business that book-ended his time with that legendary group. A multi-talented musician so adept at playing numerous musical instruments, he was a veritable one man band, and a skilled songwriter who penned many of the PBC's best loved songs. Alan's musical pedigree is second to none. From his early days on the folk circuit through his time with one of the West Coast's premier psychedelic groups and on to his solo career in the seventies, he crafted a body of work that many musicians would envy. Most of the tracks included here were recorded by Alan between 1967 and 68 at his home studio, using a Teac A1200 tape deck. His employed an innovative DIY approach: he used improvised drum kits made up from household objects and manipulated amps and guitars to create feedback and distortion effects. The remaining tracks from this collection were laid down during sessions at a pro studio, Hollywood Sound, although such is the quality of Alan's home recordings you would be hard pressed to single out which ones were made in more professional surroundings. There are surprising guests such as Glen Campbell, who plays tasty lead guitar on "Freeways Of Love". Alan also collaborates with his friend Knox Henderson (songwriter of some of the hits for Mouse & The Traps) on a couple of tracks included here. Songs like "Shell Of A Man", or "Blowin' My Mind Over You" could've been easily included on any of the Peanut Butter Conspiracy albums, while others like "Summertime Changes" or "Love's Only Sleeping" are amazing examples of homemade, DIY psych-fuzz. Master tape sound; Insert with detailed liner notes by Gary Newell (Shindig!, Ugly Things), track-by-track comments by Alan Lee Brackett and rare photos. LP $18 SKU:18296

BRAINBOX- Dark Rose - (60s Dutch psych) Label:PSEUDONYM It comes packaged in a magnificent gatefold-cover with rare photos and liner-notes including exclusive interview material. Remastered in the 24-bit domain from the original master tapes. Brainbox was something special. The band not only featured some of the Netherlands' most preternaturally talented musicians, but in less than three years they produced a recorded legacy that was truly world class. Much of their best work appeared on their 1969-71 singles, which have been compiled on this definitive 2-LP collection, pressed on 180gm vinyl and dynamically re-mastered from the original tapes. The original lineup with lead-guitarist Jan Akkerman, bassist Andr Reijnen, drummer Pierre van der Linden and vocalist extraordinaire Kaz Lux deliver the goods on pile-driving blues rock songs like 'Down Man' and 'Dark Rose,' and the hard-hitting Hendrix-inspired rocker 'Amsterdam, The First Days' -- all presented in their original mono mixes. After Akkermans departure, Brainbox expanded its musical palette with guitarists Rudy de Queljoe (ex-Dragonfly) and John Schuursma (ex-Rob Hoekes R&B Group), recording memorable tracks like 'Between Alpha And Omega,' 'Doomsday Train,' 'Mobilae' and the blisteringly powerful 'Virgin.' Dark Rose / Their 45s also includes previously unreleased demo-versions of 'Virgin,' 'Dark Rose' and the epic 'Sea Of Delight.' LP $26 SKU:14720

BROOKINGS, DAVID -KING WITHOUT A THRONE(POWER POP) Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS A Best Of compilation featuring 12 songs that span Brookings seven albums released 2000-2016. Another perfect Power Pop record! (2017) LP $14 SKU:18512

COSMIC DEAD -ECCIE BAM YAS, E?Label:MONORAIL Eccie Bam Yas, E?' began life as a meditative piece rather than the rocket-fuelled out-rock the band is more associated with. Spliced and reformed by the band, using jams and improvised sets taken from the 'Rainbowhead' recordings in Kyle of Lochalsh, a small village in the North of Scotland. In this remote setting the band recorded a myriad of improvised pieces inspired by the rural surroundings. The resulting material was then scattered across the three albums 'Easterfaust' (2014), 'Rainbowhead' (2016) and 'Eccie BamYas, E?' (2017). LP $22 SKU:18801


RESTOCKS AND DISCOUNTS

FLASHCUBES--Boogie City POWERPOP TWEAKED CORNER BARGAIN! Label:NORTHSIDE BW /Hey Miss Betty The Flashcubes may be the great lost power pop group of the 1970s. Formed in 1977 in the sleepy little city of Syracuse, NY, the Flashcubes combined their love for the timeless British Invasion rock 'n' roll of the Beatles, the Kinks, the Hollies and the Who with the high-energy sounds of the punk rockers just starting to make a big noise around that same time. Throw in a healthy reverence for classic power pop acts like Big Star and the Raspberries--and a healthy irreverence for everything else--and you've got a fair picture of what made the Flashcubes shine so brightly. 45 RPM $8 SKU:18846

BROWN SPIRITS -ST (Hammond-driven Kraut-laden psych jams)Label:OFF THE HIP Collating a love of Hammond-driven Kraut-laden psych jams, down-tempo beats and elements of atmospheric guitar noise inspired by the Italianlibrary/soundtrack genre.

Fast-forward to 2017 and the band have cut 14 “Zilla killers” for their debut album, out on Off The Hip records on 3rd November.

CONCRETE RUBBER BAND -Risen Savior ( insane underground basement psych)-Label:HIDDEN VISION RECORDS (USA) Abundant fuzz guitar, organ, and male and female lead vocals.. A very strange rock album (in the best way), which just happens to have religion as its subject. "Official reissue of this insane underground basement psychedelic rock album, a massively-rare 1974 release on the Missouri-based American Artists label of which only two or three copies are known to be exist in private collections. The label says this about it: "Some of the most ‘out there’ psychedelic sounds can be found on this Kansas trio's mega-rare custom LP. The song, ‘Christian,’ for example, opens with a Bach fugue before laying in its steady rock beat punctuated with subterranean wah-wah guitar and a wild, heavily modulated lead. The song, ‘Wicked,’ opens side two with a bizarre amalgam of what sounds like synthesized, bubbling lava pits, frequency oscillations, distorted, sci-fi vocals and shortwave, static patterns. This is psychedelia at its most underground and extreme, with all the ear marks of a bad drug trip which, given the songs dark subject matter, works just fine. Likewise, ‘What Shall We Do?’ opens with a lengthy outpouring of some of the most vicious, distorted, fuzz guitar ever then relaxes into a spooky, dream-like ballad before it climaxes with a flying saucer effect that sounds straight out of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” There are several fine and moody garage tracks here as well. The overall impact is difficult to describe: the songs are highly listenable and quite creative. Dense echoes add to the homemade feel of the entire project. Duncan Long, the main man behind the synths, guitars and song writing is now a published science fiction author, which explains a lot, we think. CD $10 SKU:18995

COSTA, CESAR -LA Historia De Tommy (1963 Mexican rarity) ONE ONLY! Label:DIMSA MINI LP COVER . La Historia de Tommy is a varied set of tunes from Mexican actor and singer César Costa cut in the 1960s that starts off with the story of our titular Tommy. Tommy, a speed demon it seems, just couldn't control himself on the track and fatally flips his car. Lucky for us, he has time to send his girlfriend a message of eternal love in the form of a bouncy yet plaintive pop ballad. The songs offer everything from Sinatra-esque swing and highly-orchestrated pop to sax-driven R&B. Titles include "La Historia De Tommy," "Té Para Dos," "Bethilde," "Laura," "Historia De Me Amor," and more. CD $15 SKU:19518

COUNT FIVE - Psychotic Reunion live ( 60s psych)-Label:PERFORMANCE LAST COPIES! Cool 14 track live set from ‘87. CD $5 SKU:1192

COUSINS,DAVE -Two Weeks Last Summer (70s rock w STRAWBS/DEEP PURPLE) -Label:WITCHWOOD MEDIA 1972, between Strawbs albums, band leader Dave Cousins slipped away to make his long-promised solo album. Surrounding himself with rock musicians, including Dave Lambert who would shortly join the band, and some really big names from the rock world such as Roger Glover from Deep Purple and Jon Hiseman from Colosseum, he made an album which easily stands alongside the best of the Strawbs' releases. Whilst the songs on the album are to some extent songs which never quite made it onto earlier albums, that was certainly not for reasons relating to their quality. Some are Cousins classics: the title track, 'October To May' and 'We'll Meet Again Sometime'. Other highlights are the superb 'Blue Angel' suite, 'The Actor' and 'Ways And Means.' A sign of Cousins' increasingly rock-oriented aspirations, the out and out rocker 'Going Home' was recorded initially with Dave Lambert's vocals, but Cousins replaced them with his own and released it as a single CD $8 SKU:19075

CREEP OUTS- Hopeless Friends (60s style FOLK POP from the UK )Label:OFF THE HIP Folk/pop from the UK, 60s style. CD $8 SKU:19219

DUNHILL BLUES - HARD TRUTH RAW POWER Sonics, /MC5, / Dictators/ New York Dolls style -Label:OFF THE HIP The Dunhill Blues, hailing from Sydney, are the ultimate bourbon-drenched, B-movie party band. Their expertise in pumping out a spicy hybrid of soulful garage rock, snotty punk, scuzz-bucket country, twisted surf and fried-brain psych ensures that this album absolutely shakes with the type of primitive, ‘ice-pick through the amps’ raw power that made legends such as The Sonics, The Monks, The MC5, The Dictators and The New York Dolls so much eardrum-exploding fun." - BY GRAHAM BLACKLEY CD $8 SKU:18918

FICTION - Negative Fun-Label:OFF THE HIP 1978 Aussie punk/powerpop, pre Little Murders. CD $13 SKU:19470

RECKLESS HEARTS-GET UP AND RUN (Milwaukee powerpop) -Label:OFF THE HIP While Powerpop certainly didn’t take its first steps here in the Midwest (we can actually thank the first wave of ‘60s Britpop bands, such as The Kinks, The Who, The Small Faces and, yes, even The Fab Four, for this distinction), it, nonetheless, became fertile ground for many of today’s most respected Power-poppers. Rockford’s Cheap Trick, The Shoes from Zion, IL and Chicago’s Pezband all helped redefine the genre for a new generation of music fans.Joining the new wave of Midwestern Powerpop bands is the Milwaukee-based four-piece, The Reckless Hearts, featuring Thomas Culkin (vocals, guitars), Ian Lund (bass, vocals), Joel Kopp (guitars) and Jered Piencikowski (drums). Built from the ashes of the late, great Kenosha punk band The Danger, The Reckless Hearts have traded the sweat and saliva from their previous incarnation in favor of melody-driven pop songs filled indelible guitar riffs, hooks galore and unbridled energy. CD $8 SKU:19226

So beware, don't let their saucy looks fool you into thinking they're all sweet 'cause this album proves The Shimmys will dig their fingernails in DEEP once they get their hooks on you!! Includes killer new originals like "Doctor Doctor", "Two Pot Screamer", "He's My Werewolf" plus a few raunchy covers; "Don't Slander Me", "Whatcha Gonna Do". CD $13 SKU:17857

Nailing a classic British infused garage style, Sole Stickers enlisted Jon Auer of The Posies, who mixed the album and added his musical finesse via internet collaboration from the super fuzz capital of Seattle (USA). CD $8 SKU:19234

VILLENETTES- LADY LUCK(girly/garage/surf/rockabilly) Label:OFF THE HIP The Villenettes are a rock’n’roll girl gang from Adelaide, Australia. They love Elvis, bad horror movies, leather jackets, and running amok on a Saturday night.

They want to make you dance like the devil and party like it’s 1959.

BRAIN SOUND -An Attempt To Record Coincidence (rare Aussie 1972 Hans Pokoro fave) -Label:NERO’S NEPTUNE (USA) Pictured in all its tantalizing, eye-popping glory in Hans Pokora's 1001 Record Collector Dreams, this hellishly rare Austrian avant-garde LP from 1972 is nothing short of astonishing. There are no instruments, but rather varying configurations of solo, duo and ensemble vocal improvisations, presumably informed by the aforementioned (and nearly impenetrable) code (or “charts”). Although this might be seen as part of an interesting continuum, this unique and prescient music will stun even the most astute followers of outsider art. Describe it, you say? Shape note singing for acidheads, perhaps? From an avant-classical perspective, one might mention late 60's Penderecki as a possible reference point (along with Ligeti, or perhaps even Nono). In improvised music, the Spontaneous Music Ensemble’s larger workshop groups similarly feature masses of vocal sounds; comparisons with Alan Watts’ This Is It are as plausible as they are inevitable. Ultimately, though, nothing will quite prepare you for this LP. In fact, when an original copy landed at Nero’s Neptune headquarters, one notorious ‘outsider’ label chief/collector extraordinaire's peni-meter became so perilously engorged that he nearly burst with envy, casting ridiculous offers of rare wax and unmentionable ‘favors’ our way whilst begging to let him take over. In other words, we strongly recommend purchasing this limited reissue while you can and securing appropriate spiritual condiments for the trip. After all, you CAN be anyone this time around.” High-gloss tip-on sleeves with HQ-180 gram vinyl. LP $17 SKU:19494

BRAINTICKET - COTTONWOODHILL (ACID PSYCH 1971 (+CD)Label:LILITH Repress! On 180-gram vinyl and coming with a bonus CD of the album. Being as LSD was first developed in a laboratory in Basel, it is perhaps no coincidence that one of the most "far out" albums of all time was made by this Swiss band (no small feat, given the competition!). Brainticket's 1971 debut, 'Cottonwoodhill', begins normally enough with two fine psychedelic/kraut rock-influenced tracks, but the remainder of the album plays like an acid trip with a soundtrack, dominated by Joel Vandroogenbroeck's endless droning organ, a variety of musique concrète-type sound effects and vocalist Dawn Muirs trippy vocals. The album, banned in several countries, even came with this self-imposed warning: "After Listening to this Record, your friends may not know you anymore." / "Only listen to this once a day, your brain might be destroyed!". LP $24 SKU:19708
