Colin Newman
Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish

Colin Newman kept busy during Wire’s temporary early 80’s split, releasing three rather interesting solo records. Provisionally entitled the singing fish is a little unusual, with some entirely non-post-punk sounds creeping in there. Released on vinyl and CD, with the CD edition coming with ...view item »

Eno
Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)

Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy) is the second solo album by Brian Eno and was the first to employ his oblique strategies cards. Like a lot of Eno's early solo work some of the music is surprisingly upbeat an accessible at times but also delves deep into the sort of dense art rock that his work with Roxy...view item »

SWANS
The Great Annihilator

When The Great Annihilator arrived, Swans took the best qualities of their recent chamber-folk tendencies from the last two tepid albums and combined them with crushing post rock catharsis (polar opposites, it would seem), to produce a record firmly centred around the spirit and regeneration. The production is jarring...view item »

Sauna Youth
Dreamlands

Suicide
Suicide

The 1977 debut by Alan Vega and Martin Rev is a conceptual and sonic assault. Vega’s pithy lyrics and echoed rockabilly vocals over Rev’s seething, primitive beatbox and fuzzed-up synths are a simple and devastatingly effective combination. Ghost Rider and Rocket USA is a killer double whammy to open...view item »

No-Man
Returning Jesus

First released in 2001, here is another chance for you to get your hands on Returning Jesus, a key statement from no-man.

The Rebel
Riding In The Sun / Why Must I Pay

Country Teasers mainman Ben Wallers is also The Rebel, and it is under this guise that he does some of his most fascinating work. Outsider punk that peels the genre apart and shows you s...view item »

Pere Ubu
The Art of Walking

This album was originally released in 1980. Twenty years later, it still sounds contemporary and intriguing. The closest comparison I can draw are recordings of Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band in the early 1980s. . There is only one terrifically annoying tune best avoided here, "Los...view item »

Intermission

Liars
TFCF

Liars are back. After a three year absence the off-kilter group return with a new footprint in their skewed journey in dark experimental lands. This time, with eleven-track TFCF, the band couple their line up upheaval with a revolutionised sound - one which smears the line between acoustic and electronic....view item »

Liars
Mess

Liars are a band who seem to make a point of confounding people's expectations of them, starting out as scratchy post-punk types and then setting themselves adrift in all manner of conceptual and textural explorations. Their new album 'Mess' dropped on my review pile this week with Phil apologetically saying that nobody else in the office likes ...view item »

ESG
Keep On Moving

ESG have reissued a new wave funk compilation of nine tracks entitled Keep On Moving. Described as being the product of a studio that was left to run itself, this record is the all consuming sound of the techno dance floor. Solid beats and slightly distorted cymbal sounds compliment the youthful vocals in this release. ...view item »

3 Teens Kill 4
No Motive

Remastered for vinyl by George Horn, No Motive is the 1982 release from New York experimental rock outfit 3 Teens Kill 4. Although the record may be from the 80’s, it could easily be plucked from any of the current new wave bands, showing just how progressive 3 Teens Kill 4 are- notice the references to Reagan thr...view item »

Rich La Bonte
Mayan Canals

Setting up his own label, Flatdisk, in 1980 Rich La Bonté has released sporadically. Dark Entries have remastered his debut full length that was released in 1981.

Gary Wilson & The Blind Dates
Live At CBGB

Really, really strange man Gary Wilson gained his reputation with a series of oddball records that could be perfectly summed up as prog-based lounge music. This release documents a live set at New York's CBGBs  - one of the few venues in which he was welcome to play. The back up by a pact of ex New Yorkers called the Blind ...view item »

Der Plan
Gefährliche Clowns

German New Wave pioneers Der Plan began revolutionising synth pop with their 1980 album Geri Reig. Gefahrliche Clowns, or Dangerous Clowns in English, appeared on that album. The avant garde band, who do everything with a hefty dose of humour, have reconvened after more than 20 years to record their classic son...view item »

Tyvek
Fast Metabolism

This record is a collection of Tyvek's earliest, rawest singles and recordings. They have a sloppy sound, that makes you think of an early Fall, but with less talented more Yankee (obviously!) sounding shouty vocals. The songs are vitriolic, and ramshackle to THE MAX!! Yet they have quit...view item »

Coca Leaf
Deep Marble Sunrise

Made in a Florida swamp (very hot I assume), Coca Leaf sculpted this brand of funk, jazz, noise, dub and new wave over a series of brain-fried studio sessions and madcap improvisation experiments.

Fred Schneider and the Superions
The Vertical Mind

Fred Schneider is of course known to us all as a member of party-starters The B-52s, but here he is backed by his new group The Superions. The Vertical Mind is also stacked with party power though, being a wryly amused set of pop-disco-new wave thrillers. Good fun stuff, released by Hap...view item »

Gary Wilson & Tredici Bacci
Another Lonely Night In Brooklyn

Weirdo hero Gary Wilson took to the stage at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium some little while ago, with Tredici Bacci, the band who play music in the style of vintage Italian film soundtracks backing him.

Lavender Holyfield
Rabbitboxing Midnightmouth

With members of acts including (but not limited to!) The Olivia Tremor Control, Realistic Pillow and Circulatory System, it really is justified to call Lavender Holyfield a supergroup, especially if you are a fan of the whole Athens scene. Rabbitboxing Midnightmouth is ...view item »

The Last Four Digits
Don't Move (1980-1982)

The Last Four Digits were a band that only existed for a few years in the early 80’s, but still managed to have two thoroughly different line-ups in that time. Don’t Move (1980-1982) anthologises both editions of this key underground new wave group with a great selection of tracks. The LP version comes with ...view item »

Brando's Island
Duplicaat / Natural Order

Brando’s Island, who have an excellent name, are a synth-punk outfit with a little dose of no-wave attitude for good measure. Duplicaat / Natural Order is their third single, and it feels like the band are lashing out and lashing in at themselves all at the same time. Plenty of edge and frenzy to these two tracks....view item »

Flying Calvittos
Goodbye You Spaghetti Punks

Flying Calvittos were a super-obscure Australian underground band who made this EP in 1980 and then more or less vanished. Goodbye You Spaghetti Punks is a noisy weirdo-punk slice of scrunch, charmingly free of much concern for neatness or anything else like that. This EP has never been reissued before, but is now press...view item »

Gerry & The Holograms
Gerry & The Holograms

Gerry & The Holograms are a fascinating footnote in Manchester music history: their eponymous main song allegedly influenced New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’ and was much beloved of Frank Zappa, and yet the quasi-novelty synth-pop group is scarcely known. This release of their onl...view item »

Drab Majesty
Careless

Drab Majesty is the solo project of Deb Demure, who you may have seen drumming with the band Marriages. On Careless he jams the sounds feelings of his 1980’s LA childhood into Depeche Mode-esque dark synth-pop. The vinyl is a fetching shade of black, pressed in a ...view item »

Corridor
Supermercado

Colour-splashed, like its singular and mysterious sleeve, Supermercado ushers Corridor in a new direction whilst retaining the group's trademark sound.

Chain of Flowers
Let Your Light In / Flesh, Blood and Bone

Double A-side single from Cardiff’s premier post-punk-shoegaze-pop outfit Chain Of Flowers. Let Your Light In / Flesh, Blood and Bone sounds like it could play to get the crowd excited before a Cure gig, with moody vocals and dramatic synth and guitar lines. Released as a 7” single on the Al...view item »

Suicide
A Way Of Life

In terms of pure sound this is probably Suicide's least dated work and constituted a brilliant update of the group's signature in 1988. Unfortunately, it's always been pretty underrated, usually because of the enormous degree of mythologisation that their two first records have enjoyed in the underground scene throughout the years. A Way of Life...view item »

Liquid Liquid
Slip In And Out Of Phenomenon

Liquid Liquid: Slip In & Out Of Phenomenon (Domino) Sorry to bore all the heads reading this mindless bit off guff, but just to re-iterate: Liquid Liquid wrote Cavern and Optimo, one which formed the backbone (bassline) to a certain Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five record that was dead famous back when hip hop and ...view item »

Talking Heads / Echosmith
This Must Be The Place

This is the series which pairs two artists together, performing the same song. Talking Heads were of course a legendarily jittery new wave band and here play their original from their 'Speaking in Tongues' album. I simply have no idea who Echosmith are. The record is also unique in boldly pushing the price of a ...view item »

Marc Hurtado & Alan Vega

Eyeless In Gaza
Original Albums Boxset

Eyeless In Gaza were a post-punk outfit from Warwickshire who were active in the 80s and helped keep it moody, moving with a similar trajectory to Talk Talk from a poppy sound to sombre New Wave shores.

Animal I

Blank Square make punk-music-gone-weird, engaging with the lessons of messed-up no wave and also pushing a saxophone to the front of their sound. Animal I is their debut record, and the deep and odd punk fans are going to go wild for it. Released, naturally enough, on ...view item »

Fufanu
Sports

Spearheaded by the stabbing bass of the record's self-titled track, Sports, neo-psychadelic outfit Fufanu sound like a nu-rave version of such 1980's innovators as Joy Division and They Fall. Their electo-driven post-punk lies alongside a plethora of candid, almost spoken vocals - which ...view item »

Half Japanese
Hear The Lions Roar

Everyone either does or should love Half Japanese, the expression of a brotherly love for weirdo rock music to be played with no regard for conventional technique.

'Alan Vega Martin Rev' (named after the two members of Suicide, in case that isn't obvious) was originally released in 1980 and produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek. A lighter and fluffier animal than its predecessor, but still bearing a healthy kick of venom. Reissued on vinyl....view item »

John Cale
Fragments Of A Rainy Season

Fragments Of A Rainy Season captures John Cale live and musically stripped back to the bare bones. It was originally released in 1992. The album features tracks from John Cale’s classic albums such as Fear and Paris 1919, but it is perhaps most notable for his cover of Le...view item »

Colin Newman

New Fries
More

New Fries are such a lively-sounding band that you feel like you must be missing something by not getting the visual aspect: these songs are so bursting at the seams with *stuff*, they must be sprouting out colours or something. Anyway, for now we must settle for the kaleidoscopic sound of New Fries: 10 inches w...view item »

Pere Ubu
New Picnic Time

New Picnic Time is the third album by Cleveland, Ohio’s experimental art-rockers Pere Ubu. It was originally released in 1979, it continued a run of classic albums that also included The Modern Dance and Dub Housing.The sessions for the album were so stressful that the band split after recor...view item »

Pere Ubu
Song of the Bailing Man

Song of the Bailing Man is an album that is often overlooked; for many fans of Pere Ubu it is their least favourite. This makes sense because it is a different album from the rest. It lacks the Punk edge of the earliest Pere Ubu and it's not as dark as the middle period albums. With Song of the Bailing Man, the group took a brighter, more whimsi...view item »

Tuxedomoon

Milemarker
Overseas

Prog showstoppers Milemarker have a long history of mixing a rigid post-hardcore element into synthy New Wave gloop, an undercurrent of math kinetics and metal showboating in the vox. Their new record, Overseas, panders to their old love of fronting guitars and giddily overbearing electronics. It's a bit silly...view item »

Savant
Artificial Dance

Savant has titled this record Artificial Dance, which is an interesting choice given that the music it contains is a lot less ‘artificial’ than plenty I’ve heard. Although loops and samples are clearly in play here, the instrumental tracks at the core of these pieces sound very much human, especially w...view item »

Mars
Mars Archives Volume Two: 11000 Volts to Tunnel

The second release in this series of Mars Archives explorations / excavations is a bunch of live tracks recorded at Max’s and CBGB circa 1978. 11000 Volts To Tunnel jerks and kicks with the sparky weirdness of Mars’ still-emerging no wave sound.

Exek
Biased Advice

Melbourne band Exek have their first full-length album to show off. Their sound is not a sunny one: instead, this music feels like it was made in some shady garage before a hard rain, late at night.

Warehouse
Super Low

Warehouse are an Atlanta GA band who tap into the marvellously fertile Athens jangle pop/art rock scene of the early 1980's. In fact the band provide the perfect R.E.M like backing for the remarkable growling vocals of Elaine Edenfield who bears an uncanny resemblance to Pylon's Vanessa Briscoe Hay. Quite r...view item »

Duchess Says
Sciences Nouvelles

Duchess Says seem to be working a very interesting seam indeed, crossing over fuzzy psych with cold-wave synths and Italo disco grooves. Plus a little bit of punks-from-space? Very hard to pin down, but very easy to enjoy. Sciences Nouvelles is their third album, and is released by the Slovenly label....view item »

The Pool
Dance It Down / Jamaica Running

Patrick Keel’s new wave dance experiments from 1983 were received so well by DJs at the time that he reworked them into faster versions and dub tracks specifically for mixing.

Archival labels are great: not only do they reissue much-loved releases from days gone by, but sometimes they even give old records their first release!
