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 Music only hinted at.

EP-4
Lingua Franca-1

Kyoto sextet EP-4 first released this bizarre no-wave mutant funk album, rich with cheese-bass, drawled vocals and fab percussion, in 1983. WRWTFWW Records thinks you should hear it again in 2018 and it’s good advice. The pace tends to be quite slow and groovy, but speeds up a bit on the B side. Style ranges from grinning funk to mild freakout.

48 Chairs
70% Paranoid

Described as one of Manchester's best kept secrets, this was an album of the bringing together of free jazz honker Lol Coxhill and synth wannabees Gerry and the Holograms.  Originally made in 1981,  the album bridges electronic jazz and punk jazz with vocals supplied by punk one-timer Fran Kershner. A collision course of DIY and out there jazz that stands the test of time.  

XTC
Wasp Star (Apple Venus Vol II)

Thank the lord the mooted double Apple Venus album was split into two and therefore the magnificent Apple Venus Vol 1 could stand on it's own two feet. Wasp Star was a more muscular, guitar orientated XTC album but lacks the colour provided by the departed Dave Gregory's guitar playing and arrangements. A good album but always trails slightly in the wake to it's predecessor. 

Pere Ubu
The Art of Walking

The Art of Walking was Pere Ubu's 1980 album and their fourth full length album. There had been a line up tweak with Red Krayola's Mayo Thompson replacing original guitarist Tom Herman. This resulted in a more deconstructed and abstract album that began a move away from the schizoid garage-rock they had peddled at the beginning of their career.

Donny McCaslin
Blow.

First album from veteran saxophonist Donny McCaslin since he helped define the sound of David Bowie's final album, Blackstar. On Blow McCaslin enjoys the liberation he learned from Bowie, drawing on everything from 90s hip-hop to contemporary electronic dance music. On how many other albums would you find a Deadmau5 cover and a Mark Kozelek feature?

Japan
Tin Drum

David Sylvian fronted arty-odd-synth-pop-new-wavers Japan originally released their fifth and final album Tin Drum in 1981 through Virgin. This half-speed mastered edition is available as a single LP as per the original, or a 2LP edition cut at 45 RPM for a better noise floor. Includes the singles Ghosts and The Art of Parties, as well as the ever infectious Talking Drum.

Guerilla Toss
Twisted Crystal

Weeee’re not gonna take it! No, we ain’t gonna take it! We’re not gonna take it! Any… ... Whoops, might have misread the title of this one. Twisted CRYSTAL is Boston disco-rockers Guerilla Toss’s third LP for DFA, and the group really seem to have grown into the label’s sound now. Cuts like ‘Meteorological’ are spunky dance-punk joints equal parts The Rapture and Laurie Anderson.

Noseholes
Danger Dance

On Harbinger Sound (Sleaford Mods etc), Noseholes (yup we all have two of them) make a kind of rackety no-wave and post-punk that it sure to blow any cobwebs away. Comparisons have been made to bands like Bush Tetras and Shopping and so this distinctly lop sided tangle of guitars promises much.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Re-ac-tor

This is where it all began. Not Neil Young’s whole career, obviously, but the period of it where Young and his then-label Geffen started their legendary beef. Kicking off with 1981’s Re·ac·tor and lasting for most of the subsequent decade, Geffen were tearing their hair out at the fact that Young kept providing them with records that weren’t essentially Harvest Part 2. While Re·ac·tor is still more Neil Young-y than, say, Trans, the combination of heavy electric guitar and New Wave influences certainly ruffled a few feathers. It’s a great record.

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG. Also we are assured that this IS Martin Hannett this time. Hi Ozit Dandelion. 

Sparks

Pere Ubu
Raygun Suitcase

After three albums that flirted with pop for major label, Fontana, Pere Ubu returned to the comfort of an indie label and the darker, more avant-garde sound of their origins for 1995’s Raygun Suitcase. The album received a mixed critical response but was well thought of by Rolling Stone magazine, and they tend to know their stuff. LP and CD on Fire.

The Jellies
Jive Baby On A Saturday Night

One of the most highly treasured and sought-after post-punk rarities for record collectors is The Jellies’ 1981 single ‘Jive Baby On a Saturday Night’. Re-discovered in part by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, this limited 12” expanded re-issue does some of the job in satisfying that demand, including the original, a radio edit, and three remixes (including one from Lemon Jelly’s Fred Deakin). 

Carol

Sparks
The Best & The Rest Of The Island Years 74-78

Although they've intermittently done brilliant stuff over the years (and continue to do so), the golden era for Sparks was probably the 1974-1978 era when they were signed to Island. This included great albums such as Kimono My House and Propaganda. This collection comprises the 'best' bits and on LP2 you get the 'rest' - i.e. all the B sides from the period.

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 a whole extra disc of demos and the like. On Sentient Sonics.

Bush Tetras
Take The Fall

New York post punk four-piece Bush Tetras are back, a full 38 years after their classic debut single Too Many Creeps. They haven’t been the most prolific of bands, with new album Take The Fall being only their fourth in all that time. The 2018 incarnation of the band sees original bass player Laura Kennedy replaced by Val Vera. LP and CD on Wharf Cat Records.

Pere Ubu
Les Haricots Sont Pas Salés 1987-1991

This is the third and final vinyl boxset compiling remastered editions of the Cleveland veterans’ earlier albums. 1988’s The Tenement Year is a particularly solid set of tunes, less spiky and more reflectively mature than earlier work, boasting the clever yet heart-wrenching We Have the Technology. Follow-up Cloudland moves even more into commercial alt-pop territory, exemplified by the exuberant Beckett-rewrite Waiting For Mary. Worlds in Collision adds Beefheart / Residents guitarist Eric Drew Feldman. There’s also a fourth disc of previously unreleased material. This boxset represents a now somewhat overlooked period in Ubu history, where they drew on Americana from the Beach Boys to Beefheart in a unique and always interesting way, with David Thomas cast in the unlikely role of pop singer.

No Babies
Someone To Watch Over Me

Oakland, California’s post-punk no-wavers No Babies just want what we all want - someone to watch over us. And, uh, no babies? Doubtless spoilt for choice of lyrical content with recent political and social developments of their US base of operations, the group are channelling fury and friendship just as effectively as on previous releases.

Your Food
Poke It With a Stick

Fascinating. Here is a re-issue of these Louisville legends who once blew the mind of the then 11 year old Britt Walford (Slint). They were a crazed raggle- taggle collective sonically out of kilter with the then thriving hardcore scene with songs that referenced ESG and Bush Tetras. They didn't last long but were huge influences on what later came out of Louisville.

The Jazz Butcher
The Violent Years

The Jazz Butcher were formed in 1982 by Pat Fish. After making four albums for the Glass label, they signed to Creation, which is where The Violent Years begins. The 4 CD set, presented in a 20-page hardback book, collects together their first four albums for Creation: Fishcotheque, Big Planet, Scarey (sic) Planet, Cult of the Basement and Condition Blue. It sees their sound evolve from Weather Prophets style indie-rock to jazz-inflected pop.

Pill
Live at Third Man Records

Brooklyn punks Pill come through with one of the most unusual and thrilling releases in the Live At Third Man Records 7” series. The live setting makes the band’s already-frenzied no wave by turns more no-ey and more wave-y. ‘Afraid of the Mirror’, for instance, pits garbled vox and sax against a thick Kraut-punk groove before slipping into a discordant shuffle reminiscent of Shopping or The Slits.

Roxy Music
Roxy Music

Roxy Music’s game-changing eponymous debut from 1972 has been given some fancy reissue treatment. A 3 CD and DVD set featuring tons of outtakes, demos, rare stuff, a 136 page booklet and 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson is the version people want to get their hands on. It has been put together with input from members of the band. It is also being issued as 180g vinyl LP and Deluxe 2-CD with 24 page booklet. This is a must for fans of the band.

Eaters
Eaters

As a self-titled 2014 full-length from Eaters, this ten-track release is a beautifully crafted example of daring art-rock. As a band with one foot in contemporary art projects, and the other dedicated live music shows (such as Moogfest), the group manage to tie the two journeys together - forming a rich and colourful universe.

Wire
Red Barked Tree

Red Barked Tree was Wire's 2010 era album on which the band pared back to a trio comprising Colin Newman, Graham Lewis and Robert Grey. The result is, as you may expect, a more minimal and compact affair eschewing their more abrasive sound for the kind of melodic, economical pop they played in the mid 80's. Another addition to their rich history and as always a fascinating listen.

Dennis Young (Liquid Liquid)
Reel To Real

An archive collection of rare and unreleased solo recordings from Dennis Young. Known as the percussionist for Liquid Liquid, this set of sixteen tracks compiles his out of band experiments between '82-83. There’s a homely feel to the recordings, thanks perhaps to Young recording them at home. Just a guess. It's understandably heavy on the drums. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Staubgold.

Ut
Ut + Confidential

First out the gate for the Ut reissue series are the debut EPs from the New York no wavers. Ut’s is a darker and more angular take on the bass and rhythm centred approach they share with contemporaries Liquid Liquid and ESG. Admirably inventive and non-hierarchical. Available on CD or 12” cut at 45 rpm.

A Certain Ratio
The Graveyard and The Ballroom

The Graveyard and the Ballroom was the very first album released by A Certain Ratio. It was recorded by legendary producer Martin Hannett and shows the band in their beginning stages, starting to perfect the danceable post-punk that yielded true rewards on their follow up opus To Each. Re-issue on Mute. 

Eno
Here Come The Warm Jets

Here Come the Warm Jets was Brian Eno's debut solo album, credited under the name Eno it marked a continuation from the glam/art rock of Roxy Music but with a much more experimental bent. Tracks like the storming opener Needles in a Camel's Eye and Baby's On Fire anticipate the forward thinking art rock later to explored by David Bowie and the more out there post punk bands.

Eyeless In Gaza
Drumming The Beating Heart / Pale Hands Loved So Well

Eyeless In Gaza were an artsy duo operating first in the 80’s, and then in the 90’s after a break of a few years. Inspired by an Aldous Huxley novel of the same name, Martyn Bates and Peter Becker work strange wonders. Two albums reissued together here as a double LP: Drumming The Beating Heart and Pale Hands Loved So Well.

Eyeless In Gaza
Rust Red September

Eyeless In Gaza were an artsy duo operating first in the 80’s, and then in the 90’s after a break of a few years. Inspired by an Aldous Huxley novel of the same name, Martyn Bates and Peter Becker put together a highly atmospheric set of tracks with Rust Red September, re-released now on double white vinyl.

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. A sublimely subtle suite of art-rock songwriting with a smooth, lush, ECM-jazz instrumental palette. This reissue is available as a double LP or as a double CD, with the CD edition also including a stack of b-sides, demos and other associated rarities.
