FOUNDATIONS OF BURDEN

Band:PALLBEARER
Album:FOUNDATIONS OF BURDEN
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

In the short timespan that they’ve been a band, Little Rock Arkansas’ PALLBEARER have literally defined and set a new standard in the realm of modern-day doom metal. Their 3-song “The Legend” demo which was first released already had made a huge impression in itself amongst the doom metal scene. Said demo would just be a harbinger for what would become the band’s debut full-length LP, 2012’s “Sorrow and Extinction” which made a massive impact not only in the doom metal scene but the entire metal scene in itself along with crossing over even within more mainstream territory. In turn “Sorrow and Extinction” was one of the most praised metal albums of 2012, landing on pretty much every metal best-of year end list and being praised by such notable outlets as Pitchfork, Decibel, SPIN, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, and Entertainment Weekly, just to name a few. The band would do some great tour runs likewise in support of “Sorrow and Exctinction” touring with the likes of St. Vitus, Boris, and Enslaved, and along with playing such notable festivals as Roadburn, Hellfest, MDF, Scion Rockfest, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Hopscotch Fest respectively.

Now, with their new album “Foundations Of Burden”, PALLBEARER are prepared to take it to the next level unparalleled by creating an album much more advanced, moving, and sonically glorious than their debut. If “Sorrow and Extinction” created massive waves in the metal scene, “Foundations Of Burden” will create the stuff of legends. Captured by legendary producer Billy Anderson (Agalloch, Sleep, Neurosis, The Melvins etc.) at Type Foundry studios in Portland Oregon, “Foundations Of Burden” sees PALLBEARER expand their sound even further and going beyond into an emotionally driven sonic landscape more epic, vast, and ultimately more glorious and triumphant.

V.

Band:OMMADON
Album:V.
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Glaswegian Doom Metal par excellence - A must for fans of: Sunn O))), Electric Wizard, Conan etc..

" …and so the downtuned demonic dynamic duo known as Ommadon lurch forth from their slumber to lay waste to the world of man once more. They maketh the earth shake, the skies blacken and the seas boil with their searing, scalding ur‐doom sound. Drums that fall like the footsteps of some monstrous lead‐footed behemoth collide with metallic shrieks, growls and drones that appear to be guitars but could just as easily emanate from the throat of some colossal metallic pterodactyl. Ommadon are a two headed beast of doom and you will bow down before them."

 

 

MONNOS - LP (Repress)

Band:CONAN
Album:MONNOS - LP (Repress)
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

LIMITED REPRESS NOW BACK IN STOCK

Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense. Conan have committed their filthy, ocean-sized sound to wax (and the slightly less cvlt compact disc) twice thus farwith more fetid output always on the horizon. First came the hulking mass of debut album Horseback Battle Hammer (Throne, Aurora Borealis), followed by a split with like-minded sludge-lords, Slomatics (Head of Crom, Burning World). In December 2011 Conan returned to the remote wilderness of Foel Studio, Wales and into the capable hands of producer Chris Fielding for their next album which is to be released on Burning World Records in Spring 2012. The vinyl version of Monnos will be presented at the prestigous Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland were Conan will perform.

 

 

BLUES BAG

Band:OMAR AND THE HOWLERS
Album:BLUES BAG
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Blues Bag was originally released in 1991 as an acoustic session of tracks featuring Omar Dykes on vocals and acoustic guitar and his good friend, Fingers Taylor, on harp. Several tracks are just Omar and Fingers playing classic blues. Omar decided to bring in the Howlers on a few tracks to give the album additional depth. Gene Brandon, an original Howler drummer, recently passed away. Bruce Jones on bass still plays with Omar today. Omar himself plays harp on Big Chief Pontiac. Many of the songs are some of Omar’s favorite tracks from his entire career in the music industry. This cd is being released again as a tribute to Gene Brandon.

Re-release of classic Omar & The Howlers 1991 release.

 

 

ROWDY LOVE

Band:DENVER
Album:ROWDY LOVE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Sharing vocal and songwriting duties, Birger Olsen, Mike Elias and Tom Bevitori are the heart of Denver, while the rest of the line-up includes some of Portland’s finest players. Produced by Blitzen Trapper’s Eric Earley at Adam Selzer’s Type Foundry Studio, Denver's second record, Rowdy Love, focuses on the rare way the three songwriters’ distinct voices co-exist. There’s a natural melding of styles that’s evolved from afternoons on Olsen’s back porch and late night’s around Elias’ fire pit. The songwriting is honest and bare, whiskey-fueled, sweat-soaked, and steeped in working class life. The 140 gram vinyl component contains a digital download card.

“When we BBQ in our driveway, we prefer to do it listening to Denver, the band.” – Shovels & Rope

 

 

MOJO EP

Band:BOB MALONE
Album:MOJO EP
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

In anticipation of the release of Bob Malone’s long-awaited 7th album “Mojo Deluxe” – Delta Moon Records presents the UK-only release of “Mojo EP.” This limited-edition EP, specially made for Bob’s first extended UK tour, contains 5 rootsy, rocking neverbefore heard Bob Malone originals, and a new version of Ray Charles’s classic “Hard Times.” Mr. Malone is no stranger to the United Kingdom – he made his solo debut at Glastonbury Festival in 2013, and as part of John Fogerty’s band, played the 2012 Hard Rock Calling festival at Hyde Park. The new EP features cameos from Bob’s Fogerty bandmate Kenny Aronoff, Stan Behrens from the band War, Tim Lefebvre from Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mike Baird (Journey, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker), and many other legendary players.

Bob’s sound is a one-of-a-kind hybrid of blues, rock and New Orleans R&B, delivered with high-energy piano virtuosity and a voice all his own. He plays over 100 solo shows a year across the globe, and has played with or opened for Bruce Springsteen, Rickie Lee Jones, The Neville Brothers, Rev. Al Green, Dr. John and many others. Bob is a regular at the prestigious WWOZ Piano Night at House of Blues in New Orleans, featured along with piano legends like Marcia Ball and Henry Butler. Mr. Malone is the keyboardist on the latest John Fogerty album – “Wrote A Song For Everyone” – playing on a revamped “Lodi” (recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London), and John’s duets with Bob Seger, Miranda Lambert, and Keith Urban. Bob’s music is heard regularly on Dr. Phil, Entertainment Tonight and The Rachel Ray Show. Malone’s six CDs have earned Top-20 spots on the Living Blues, Roots Music Report and Earshot radio charts, and are played on stations worldwide, including Sirius/XM’s Bluesville, and NPR favorites Car Talk, Acoustic Café, and Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour. Bob Malone is endorsed by Hammond Organs, QSC Audio, and Fishman Acoustic Transducers. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two cats.

SUNSHINE

Band:DAVINA AND THE VAGABONDS
Album:SUNSHINE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Recorded in exquisite analog sound, Sunshine is a bold statement from a songwriter and band that draws from the last 100 years of American music and sounds truly original. Through the 11 songs (and one bonus track), many facets of the group are represented: there is the unmitigated optimism of the title track and "Flow," and the irrepressible New Orleans second-line groove of "Red Shoes." "You Better Start Praying" sounds as if it came from The Band's Last Waltz album sessions, and "Away from Me" is soul balladry at its most heartbreaking. "Fizzle Out" is an achingly beautiful pop tune, and "I Really Try to Be Good" is a hypnotic minor-key rumba. The relaxed swing of "Throw It to the Wolves for Love" is a nod to Fats Waller, and then the band covers the immortal Fats, himself, with a glorious take of his "You Must be Losing Your Mind." Besides the Waller tune, DATV has added two additional covers that have also become fan favorites, done Vagabond style. Included is the blues tune, "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water," (inspired by Aretha Franklin's version); and Davina plays a sublime solo version of Patty Griffin's "Heavenly Day." The album closes with the bonus track, an updated version of Davina Sowers' "Under Lock and Key," the title track from DATV's 2007 album (now out of print).

“The truly timeless beauty of this remarkable album puts it on a pinnacle, unrivaled and unique, a portion of cultural caviar. Stand aside, Duffy et al, here comes homage Herculean in its faith-full Monty. And yeah, I like it.” -Nick Toczek, Rock’N’Reel Magazine (UK)

 

 

FROM THE SILENCE

Band:ILUVATAR
Album:FROM THE SILENCE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Progressive Rock legends Iluvatar return with From the Silence, their first CD of brand new material in over a decade. Featuring all of the signature elements that fans expect, this new release proves that Iluvatar have lost none of the epic grandeur that made them a modern prog legend. Iluvatar first grew to prominence in the progressive rock renaissance of the early nineties, which led to them gaining a worldwide reputation for their dynamic take on melodic symphonic progressive rock and playing on stages all over the world. On From the Silence, Iluvatar consists of longtime members Glenn McLaughlin (vocals, percussion), Dennis Mullin (guitars), Jim Rezek (keyboards), Dean Morekas (bass, bass pedals, backing vocals), and Chris Mack (drums, percussion).

Strong appeal to fans of Genesis, Marillion, Pink Floyd et al

 

 

GONE

Band:PONG
Album:GONE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Post Punk

Gone is the first new studio album from Pong in four years. Emerging from the ashes of seminal Austin band Ed Hall in the late '90s, the new act eschewed Ed Hall’s post-punk guitar excesses and turned their collective ear in a rhythmic, almost pop direction, Pong emerged as a whole new musical animal; a mighty retro-futuristic fusion of melody, beat, lights, and vocal effects. Talk boxes and banks of keyboards supplanted the traditional rock instruments audiences had come to expect, and dance floors began to give under the weight of ass-shaking punk rockers rediscovering their inner groove, reveling in the mix of electronics, punk, post-punk, hip hop, and humor. Embracing and paraphrasing classic rock convention with a side of rave histrionics for a post-rock world, Pong established themselves as a world of fun in a generally all-too-serious Austin music scene. Gone represents the next step in Pong's musical evolution; seven songs that blur the lines between a number of different genres to construct what might best be described as dance music from another dimension or pop music from an alternate universe.

 

 

GONE - LTD DOUBLE CD

Band:AUTUMNS DAWN
Album:GONE - LTD DOUBLE CD
Label:Eisenwald
Format:DBL CD
Genre:Black Metal

'Gone', the debut album from Autumn's Dawn carries on the melancholic spirit found on their self-titled EP, while pushing into new territories stylistically. The depressive black metal of the past is still present in places, but it has also given way to a more refined and melodic sound, which allows the band to reach even greater heights than before. AUTUMN'S DAWN is a new musical collaboration between two musicians by the names of Sorrow (Germ, Austere, Grey Waters) and Anguish (Rise of Avernus, Troldhaugen). Both having played in numerous bands over the years, the idea for AUTUMN'S DAWN came about in 2013 while Anguish was playing session live guitar for Sorrow’s Germ.

LIMITED TO 500 COPIES ONLY 

Featuring members of GERM, AUSTERE, GREY WATERS, TROLDHAUGEN and RISE OF AVERNUS !  Within just a mere few months into the band's inception, AUTUMN’S DAWN have garnered favourable attention with their own brand of melancholic music, merging their bequest of bands like Germ, Austere, Grey Waters with influences from Sentenced, Katatonia and Mono.  “Gone” showcases a more mature yet heavy and contemporary musical soundscape than its rougher and blacker EP predecessor

AOKIGAHARA JUKAI

Band:THRALL
Album:AOKIGAHARA JUKAI
Label:Eisenwald
Format:LP
Genre:Black Metal

Tasmanian Black Metal band THRALL have recorded their third studio album as a conceptual exploration of themes relating to the suicide forest (Aokigahara Jukai). On Aokigahara Jukai, Thrall successfully articulates misanthropy without hypocrisy. By blending traditional black metal elements, with doom, death metal and crust influences, Thrall creates unique, memorable music. The trajectory of the album takes the listener on an unrelenting furious void-ward journey from the opening track to the final deathlike strains of emptiness. Coupled with the artwork’s aesthetic qualities of smothering detail, Aokigahara Jukai is an immensely compelling document of unrivalled intensity and intent.

"As completely heretical and antithetical as it is to utter this, Aokigahara Jukai is hands-down the most life-affirming record I heard in 2013." - LAST RITES

Limited deluxe 12” vinyl of Thrall’s 3rd album – metallic prints, 180g black vinyl, dropcard with free digital album

 

 

V1 FLORA

Band:BOTANIST
Album:V1 FLORA
Label:FLENSER
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

One of the Bay area's most interesting bands, Botanist is excited to announce it's sixth sequential release. Titled VI: Flora, this 11-song fulllength album was was once again recorded by Otrebor in The Verdant Realm and mastered by Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden and is scheduled for an August 11th release, once again through San Francisco's Flenser Records. VI: Flora sees Botanist continuing his story from the perspective of a crazed man of science who lives in self-imposed exile, as far away from Humanity and its crimes against Nature as possible. In his sanctuary of fantasy and wonder, which he calls the Verdant Realm, he surrounds himself with plants and flowers, finding solace in the company of the Natural world, and envisioning the destruction of man. There, seated upon his throne of Veltheimia, Botanist’s chronological sixth full-length record is a progression from the misanthropic masterplans of the destruction of mankind at the hands of plants as detailed on the project’s last two albums, 2012’s “III: Doom in Bloom” and 2013’s “IV: Mandragora.” Instead, “VI: Flora” focuses rather on the wondrous beauty of the plants themselves through a gauzy haze of dreamlike sound, with the voice of The Botanist acting as spectral underpinning to the reverie.

Botanist's previous releases, I: The Suicide Tree, II: A Rose From The Dead (released July 2011 on tUMULt), III: Doom in Bloom (TotalRust) and most recently, 2013's IV: Mandragora have seen much critical acclaim; landing on lists such as NPR's 25 Best Metal Albums, Metal Sucks Top 15 Metal Albums, Metal Injection's Top 10 Releases, and an honorable mention on Pitchfork's Top 40 Albums of 2011.

Conceived within a single and awesome week of friendship, the album displays 20 minutes of raw bass riffing and double drums battles that somehow manage to sound like proper catchy songs.

Band:HEAT
Album:LABYRINTH..
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

The five piece rockoutfit Heat from Berlin are out to rock hard. Sounds cheesy, but pretty much hits the nail on its head! Their first record was a heavy-blues driven ride through the 70s and with their new stuff, they take big step further into the vaults of old heavy metal and add some new ingredients to their already rocking roots. The new songs are filled with dust-dry twin leads, some super catchy vocal parts (a brilliant singer btw.!), and some straight forward and marching drums. And no, they are not the 564th Black Sabbath rip-off. Heat combine the best parts of 70s rock with a slight touch of the first wave of NWOBHM, early german hardrock and progrock a la Scorpions, a good piece of Witchcraft and some great old US Rock like Steppenwolf and early Wishbone Ash! All this stuff turns out super melodic and extremely catchy! Heat will release their second full length record “Labyrinth” on TCM Records at 28th of august 2014 – We are super psyched!

Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

It isn't very often that you are afforded a front row seat at the birth of a legend...but this is one such opportunity! Recorded right back at the start of it all in a pub in Birmingham, UK, this invaluable recording shows the fledgling pomp masters MAGNUM honing the talents that would one day – and not so long after this show took place, if truth be told! - make them rock n' roll household names.

Present here are early versions of classics like 'Kingdom Of Madness', 'The Battle' and 'Invasion'. This is a band waiting for its time to arrive and perfecting the skills to make the most of that time when it happens. The genius that is/was Tony Clarkin and the magnificent voice that is Bob Catley are all in place. So are the songs. Step aboard the time machine and enjoy the ride...

 

 

LIVE IN JAPAN 1980

Band:WILD HORSES
Album:LIVE IN JAPAN 1980
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Wild Horses had the pedigree to die for, tracing their lineage directly to Rainbow and Thin Lizzy, two of the most iconic hard rock acts in the history of the genre. In guitarist Brian Robertson and bassist/vocalist Jimmy Bain, they had a hard drinking, hard rocking heart and soul. Naturally, the land of the rising sun took Wild Horses to it's heart in much the same way it had fallen head over heels for the band's illustrious parents and thus the band found themselves in Tokyo in October of 1980 in promotion of their second album. And the rest, as they say....

Recently discovered, this recording shows the band at the peak of it's powers in front of a – very! - adoring audience. Come back with us in time that magical evening....

 

 

FIGHTING BACK

Band:BATTLEZONE
Album:FIGHTING BACK
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Following the dissolution of his first post-Maiden act Di'Anno, Paul Di'Anno formed Strike, the band that eventually evolved into Battlezone. Unlike his previous outfit, a band that ploughed an altogether more melodic furrow, Battlezone was a return to the British heavy metal sound that Di'Anno had helped to define during his time in Iron Maiden. Guitarists John Hurley and John Wiggins played up a storm and the band's début album 'Fighting Back' is rightly considered a bit of a lost late NWOBHM gem.

Following a US club tour in support of 'Fighting Back' Hurley and drummer Bob Falck were releaved of their duties and the band regrouped in preparation for their next album. More of that later, for now enjoy a slab of pure British metal the like of which they just don't make anymore!

 

 

CHILDREN OF MADNESS

Band:BATTLEZONE
Album:CHILDREN OF MADNESS
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Following the dissolution of his first post-Maiden act Di'Anno, Paul Di'Anno formed Strike, the band that eventually evolved into Battlezone. Unlike his previous outfit, a band that ploughed an altogether more melodic furrow, Battlezone was a return to the British heavy metal sound that Di'Anno had helped to define during his time in Iron Maiden. With debut album 'Fighting Back' under their collective belts and ith ex Persian Risk men Graham Bath and Steve Hopgood on guitar and drums respectively now on board, the band set about the task of making album number two.

“Children Of Madness” is rightly considered a bit of a lost late NWOBHM gem and the opening riff to the title track tells you very quickly that you are about to enjoy a slab of pure British metal the like of which they just don't make anymore!

 

 

FEEL MY PAIN

Band:BATTLEZONE
Album:FEEL MY PAIN
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Battlezone's last hurrah – for the time being, anyway – is an album of it's time. Brash and brutal, it perfectly reflects where heavy metal was back in the heady days of 1998. Reforming the band had been at the back of Di'Anno's mind for a while and with the classic line-up of John Wiggins on guitar, Colin Riggs on bass and Mark Angel on drums being joined by new boy Paulo Turin on second guitar, the band had a lot to prove and the means with which to do it!

Produced by the band and former Lionsheart guitarist Nick Beere and recorded at The Stable studios in Aldbourne deep in the UK's sleepy Wiltshire countryside, 'Feel My Pain' was just about as heavy as Battlezone got and is all the better for it. Unavailable for a number of years, the album sounds as freash today as it did when it was recorded!

 

 

31 DAYS

Band:SHOGUN
Album:31 DAYS
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Rising from the ashes of Tokyo Blade (one of the most enduring and hard working of the NWOBHM acts), vocalist Alan Marsh crafted that most rare of things, a melodic hard rock act that could not only compete with their cousins across the great divide in America but, on their day, beat them at their own game!

Off the back of some solid touring – most notably as support to Meatloaf in Europe, this – the band's second album for Jet records released in 1987– made quite a splash for itself. With former Tokyo Blade members Marsh, drummer Steve Pierce and guitarist Danny Gwilym along for the ride, it rocks...nicely. Available here for the first time on CD, this is definitely one worth picking up!

 

 

WHEN MIDNIGHT COMES

Band:SURGIN
Album:WHEN MIDNIGHT COMES
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Jack Ponti is one of the great almost men of hard rock. With acts like Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Keel, Bonfire, Baton Rouge, Doro, Babylon A.D. and a host of others calling on his song writing and production skills, he has been in heavy demand for the better part of the last thirty years. Starting out as guitarist in New Jersey act The Rest – alongside a young Jon Bon Jovi – 'When Midnight Comes' was his major label debut with his new band Surgin'. Jon Bon Jovi was long gone to his own, soon to be mega band but he found time to help out on backing vocals on the album. Curiously, a version of 'Shot Through The Heart' also appears on the debut Bon Jovi album...

'When Midnight Comes' is a lost AOR gem from the eighties and it's easy to imagine what might have happened if Surgin' could have held it all together for a second album, but alas that was not to be. This is just about all there is, so enjoy it for what it is – a cracking slab of eighties melodic hard hard rock!

EARTHWORKS UNDERGROUND ORCHESTRA / A PART AND YET APART

Band:BILL BRUFORDS EARTHWORKS
Album:EARTHWORKS UNDERGROUND ORCHESTRA / A PART AND YET APART
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

A PART & YET APART - The album is a fine blend of melody and technical ability. A Part, and Yet Apart was the first release from this particular line up of the band and one that is popular with many modern jazz fans. The album includes the tracks Sarah's Still Life, No Truce With The Furies and Curiouser and Curiouser. During 2004 Bill Bruford's Earthworks travelled the globe playing concerts as far afield as Spain, Mexico, Europe and the UK. If you are perhaps familiar with the name but not heard any of the Earthworks albums A Part And Yet Apart would be a good place to start being as it one of the most accessible albums released by this remarkable band.

EARTHWORKS UNDERGROUND ORCHESTRA - The close working relationship between two leading individuals on the London jazz scene, drummer Bill Bruford and saxophonist Tim Garland, is mirrored in the creation of theEarthworks Underground Orchestra . This little big band’s debut performance in the USA at Iridium, New York City, was captured live in full roaring swing, and the result will appeal alike to Earthworks fans, and fans from Bruford’s former life in King Crimson and Yes. The CD includes Earthworks standards such as Up North and Libreville, newer material such as Bajo del Sol and Speaking in Wooden Tongues, and the beautiful ballads It Needn’t End In Tears and Rosa Ballerina. Several of the band members (trumpeter Alex Sipiagin, alto player Steve Wilson and saxophonist Tim Garland) are distinguished jazz leaders in their own right.

 

 

LIVE IN TOKYO / INTRODUCTION TO BILL BRUFORD

Band:BRUFORD
Album:LIVE IN TOKYO / INTRODUCTION TO BILL BRUFORD
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features Bill Bruford's "Live in Tokyo" and "Introduction to Bill Bruford".

Keyboardist Patrick Moraz and drummer Bill Bruford had obvious commonality. By the mid-1980s both were Yes alumni, both were tiring of big-stadium excess, both had roots and influences that lay closer to jazz than progressive rock, and both were looking for a more flexible music, stripped of the trappings and associated costs of their regular day-jobs. The duo recorded two albums of drum-andkeyboard based music, suffused with upbeat invention and peerless skill. Both Music For Piano And Drums (1983) and Flags (1985) were well received and retain a resonance that still rings loud and true, and is being discovered anew by an eager audience for whom it is as fresh and exciting as it was for those who discovered it the first time around. The original albums are now accompanied on Winterfold Records by In Tokyo, an A+ quality 1985 recording from Laforet Museum, Akasaka, Tokyo, and the only official Winterfold live album available from the duo. 10 tracks capture Moraz-Bruford at the peak of their game.

 

 

ROCK GOES TO COLLEGE / GRADUALLY GOING TORNADO

Band:BRUFORD
Album:ROCK GOES TO COLLEGE / GRADUALLY GOING TORNADO
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

ROCK GOES TO COLLEGE - This concert performance was recorded as part of a live television programme aired in March 1979 and is thought to be Bruford’s debut gig following eighteen months with UK.

This re-issue of Gradually Going Tornado has been re-mastered and also includes a bonus track in the form of a previously unreleased version of Five G.

 

 

DEEP WATER / DOGFACE

Band:GARY WINDO
Album:DEEP WATER / DOGFACE
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Gary Windo was one of those people who never achieved the full recognition due to him. At least, not while he was alive. A highly original musician with an instantly recognizable style, Windo was involved in the seventies with various musicians of the Canterbury scene. Most notable was his work with Robert Wyatt on the albums Rock Bottom (1974) and Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard (1975), and with Hugh Hopper on 1984 (1973) and Hoppertunity Box (1976).

This 2cd set contains the 1987 album "Deep Water" and the follow up "Dogface".

 

 

GREAT RECORDINGS / LA VIE EN ROSE

Band:EDITH PIAF
Album:GREAT RECORDINGS / LA VIE EN ROSE
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Chanson

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features Edith Piaf's "Great Recordings 1935-1943" and "La Vie en Rose".

GREAT RECORDINGS 1935 - 1943 - Edith Piaf's younger self dominates this chronologically jumbled collection of chestnuts from the first seven-and-a-half years of her recording career (December 1935 to June 1943). This powerfully voiced little woman's successes were often tinged with scandal; she deliberately chose to record the comparatively wholesome "Mon Legionnaire" while retooling her tarnished image following the widely publicized murder of her showbiz mentor Louis Leplee. "Les Momes de la Cloche" was her very first record; here a marvelously wry whimsy is buoyed by the rippling voice of the accordion. All but six of these recordings were made during the '30s; by the early '40s, Piaf's Weltschmerz would begin to solidify as she matured into an even more arrestingly intense performer.

LA VIE EN ROSE - La Vie en Rose illustrates the gradual ripening of Edith Piaf's artistry with recordings that reference a timeline from her first session (December 1935) to the full plume of her post-war maturity (March 1947). This quintessentially Parisian entertainer was already a bundle of piqued intensities when she made her recording debut; during the '40s she evolved into a living embodiment of the increasingly theatrical and melodramatic songs that she preferred. There are premonitions here of the almost Artaud-like extremities of her later years; "C'est Pour Ca" is a disturbing tale of heartbreak and suicide; so is "Un Coup de Grisou," which must have been partially inspired by a certain turn of events described in Emile Zola's novel Germinal. And the ritualistic, solemnly beautiful "Les Trois Cloches" might just be Edith Piaf's masterpiece.

 

 

VALLEY OF SHADOWS / SERPENTS KISS

Band:ATKINS / MAY PROJECT
Album:VALLEY OF SHADOWS / SERPENTS KISS
Label:BAT COUNTRY

Genre:Rock

Atkins/May Project is the current project led by Al Atkins and Paul May. Al Atkins is a vocalist of rare talent and of course will be known by many as the founder member and original singer with British heavy metal legends Judas Priest. Over the years Al has released a number of solid well received rock albums and some of his earlier songs appear on the first Judas Priest albums.

VALLEY OF SHADOWS offers 10 Killer tracks that burst with melody and Metal mayhem. You’ll take a journey through what seems to be an evolution of Rock. with all the elements of Classic Hard Rock & Metal, yet retaining an underlying Progressive core, Valley Of Shadows will not disappoint fans of the genre who decide to take the ride!

 

 

LIFE IS A FULL TIME OCCUPATION / THE FORMULA

Band:THINKMAN / RUPERT HINE
Album:LIFE IS A FULL TIME OCCUPATION / THE FORMULA
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features Thinkman's "Life Is A Full-Time Occupation" and "The Formula".

Thinkman was in fact not a band but a pseudonym under which Rupert Hine released his solo albums. The reason for the creation of Thinkman was that Rupert could not get a deal with a record company at the time due to the corporate music industry so the 'band' was created using actors for photo shoots. Rupert got his deal and due to popular demand the Thinkman albums are now being reissued.

'Life Is A Full Time Occupation' has been digitally remastered with lovingly chosen artwork. This CD will be a must for those who missed the album the first time and those who are keen to enhance their collections. 'The Formula' was originally released in 1986 and all the music was written by Rupert who also provides the vocals. With lovingly chosen new sleeve notes, this CD will be a must for those who missed the album the first time and those who are keen to enhance their collections.

 

 

MICKS BACK / NOVOX

Band:MICK ABRAHAMS BAND
Album:MICKS BACK / NOVOX
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features Mick Abrahams' "Mick's Back” and "Novox".

Mick's Back - An anonymous internet reviewer called only Dave42 writes: '"Mick's Back" is Mick Abraham's third solo album after coming out of retirement. It may not be quite up to the level of his 1991 album, "All Said and Done", but it isn't far off. Released in July of 1996, this album features over 50 minutes of blues, with Mick playing the guitar better than ever. Mick is backed by The Norman Beaker Band, and the combination is dynamic. My personal favorites on this CD are "The Rivers Invitation", "Bad Feeling", "Time to Love", "Long Grey Mare", and "Yolanda", but all the selections are well worth a listen. 'The album has a good mix of Mick's own compositions with those from Percy Mayfield, Peter Green, Willie Dixon, and others. Mick sings and plays acoustic and slide guitars. The Norman Beaker Band consists of the following: Tim Franks (drums, percussion), Dave Baldwin (keyboards, piano, and organ), John Price (bass guitar), Norman Beaker (rhythm guitar), Lenni (sax), John Hulme (trumpet), and Sheila Gott (backing vocals).'

Novox - Fantastic solo instrumental album from 2000.

 

 

LEAVING HOME BLUES / THIS IS!

Band:MICK ABRAHAMS BAND
Album:LEAVING HOME BLUES / THIS IS!
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:3CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

LEAVING HOME BLUES - People quite often forget that Jethro Tull , who are best known for having a personable front man who looked like a tramp and stood on one leg whilst playing the flute, didn't start off as a folk band, or even a progressive rock band; they started off as a blues band. The blues influence came largely from guitarist Mick Abrahams. It was Abrahams who - on the first album - provided the only non-Anderson lead vocal in Jethro Tull 's recorded history, and with the benefit of hindsight it is easy to see that both he and Anderson were jostling for position as the prime creative mover behind the band. Unsurprisingly, there was a massive falling out between the pair, and Abrahams left the group. But what of Abrahams? One of the main reasons that he had fallen out with Anderson was that he was a blues purist, and didn't want to follow some of the more esoteric paths that Anderson was to lead the band into. No, he just wanted to play the blues.Set also contains 'This Is' album.

WAVING NOT DROWNING / IMMUNITY

Band:RUPERT HINE
Album:WAVING NOT DROWNING / IMMUNITY
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

WAVING, NOT DROWNING - Rupert Hine released this album in 1982 and it was originally recorded to tape. Rupert and Arun Chakraverty completely digitally remastered it for re-release in 1989 on CD. The re-mastering process allowed the original overall 'sound picture' to be recreated, which had been previously lost to vinyl. Rupert warns the listener that there are strange and unidentifiable sounds on this album generally but that they are all intentional. All the tracks are from the original CD but in addition Kwok's Quease has been included, which was only available as a Bside for a limited period in a 1982 tape version. Rupert wanted this track included because he felt it represents a sense of humour to offset the album's dark side. All instruments are played by Rupert Hine but he is joined on one track by Phil Collins (Genesis ) who plays percussion. Other musicians involved are Chris Thomson (additional vocals), Phil Palmer (guitar), Geoffrey Richardson (guitar, viola), Stephen W. Tayler (saxophone), Trevor Morais (drums) and Steve Negus (drums).

IMMUNITY - Immunity has been digitally re-mastered for CD, which provided an excellent opportunity to reclaim some elements of the overall sound picture previously lost in the transfer to vinyl. This means that the original versions of two particular tracks - I Think A Man Will Hang Soon and Make A Wish - have been restored. At the time of the original album the mixes were considered too scary but now make a welcome return. Phil Collins (Genesis ) plays percussion on Immunity and Another Stranger whilst Marianne Faithfull provides vocals for Misplaced Love. Rupert's talents are also very evident and he is joined by Phil Palmer (guitar), Trevor Morais (percussion), Geoffrey Richardson (viola), Trevor Morais (drums) and Ollie W. Tayler (clarinet & recorder).

 

 

CARNABY STREET / IM ONLY HUMAN

Band:MICHAEL DES BARRES
Album:CARNABY STREET / IM ONLY HUMAN
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features Michael Des Barres "Carnaby Street" and "I'm Only Human".

Carnaby Street - This album may quote from the idioms laid down by Wilson Pickett, Zoot Money and The Rolling Stones, but it is no exercise in retro-stylings. This is very much a piece of the second decade of the 21st century. It may even be Michael Des Barres’s most important work to date. The opening line of the title track immediately sets the tone of the album.:“I was 19 in 1967, on the streets of London. I was in Heaven. I was Oscar Wilde in velvet jeans. Everything you've heard is everything I've seen.” He is adamant that this is not an homage to mid-sixties music, but a contemporary album by a contemporary band presenting songs about that particular time in his life: a time when as a teenager just entering manhood, the world as a whole was celebrating ‘The Summer of Love’.

I'm Only Human - We are overjoyed to be bringing you a re-issue of MDB's debut solo album from way back in 1980; recorded when Michael was a very different fellow to the healthy, happy man he is today.

NO PEACE IN HELL

Band:GET THE SHOT
Album:NO PEACE IN HELL
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Hailing straight from Quebec City, Canada, Get The Shot was formed in 2009 by a bunch of outcasts who wanted nothing more than a chance to spit their fury at the face of the world. The band plays an unpretentious spirited hardcore tinged with the desperation of a cold and disaffected youth. Pulling off a sound akin to 90’s hardcore bands like Strife and Ringworm while incorporating elements of 80’s trash metal, its latest achievement, “No peace In Hell” is a dark and brooding record delivered with the distinctive ferocity and violent vigour of five disillusioned spirits who have nothing left to lose. No fashion, no frills, no lies. Get The Shot is all about rage and anger toward this harsh place we live in.
