Bloodshot Bill
Get Loose Or Get Lost

Canadian star Bloodshoot Bill is so much more than a rock ‘n’ roll revivalist - over more than two decades and 17 studio albums, he’s dealt in raw, primal and stripped-back rock thrillers and worked with legends like Jon Spencer in the process. Get Loose Or Get Lost is his 18th record, and shows him entering the 2020s in rude health.

Paul Weller
On Sunset

On Sunset is the 15th album from the one and only Modfather himself, Paul Weller. This is his first studio album since 2018’s True Meanings, and if what esteemed music critic Pete Paphides has been saying on Twitter is anything to go by, it’s going to be quite the listening experience. On Polydor.

Lavender Flu
Barbarian Dust

Lavender Flu (sounds quite pleasant actually) is the project of brothers Chris and Lucas Gunn, Scott Simmons and Ben Spencer. Here on their first studio-based album they continue their long term pursuit of perfect biker rock. It's both their most aggressive and confrontational album but also showcases a more sensitive side. Just like bikers themselves - it's as soft as teddy bears.

Endless Boogie & Weak Signal
Jerome / Rolex

Intriguing and exciting split 7” single here from Endless Boogie and Weak Signal. Endless Boogie expand their ranks for their track, Jerome, to include Stephen Malkmus and Matt Sweeny, both adding serious lead to the minimal blues jam. On the flip, Weak Signal, featuring Mike Bones, bring their economic chug on Rolex.

Jimi Hendrix
People, Hell & Angels

Who guessed that in 2013 we'd be given a brand new studio album from Jimi Hendrix. People, Hell and Angels is actually a compilation of music recorded for the planned follow up to Electric Ladyland. It features mainly the Band of Gypsys line up of Buddy Miles and Billy Cox but legendary drummer Mitch Mitchell makes an appearance or two. For anyone worried about a slur on his back catalogue, the album was universally praised as a worthy addition to the great man's work.

Terror From The Universe – Soundtrack From Beyond The Stars From Attic Of Lux And Ivy

The Kinks
Something Else

A classic from the archives, Something Else is the fifth studio album by The Kinks and gets a loving reissue on Sanctuary. On 140g vinyl with the original UK tracklisting, it’s the last Kinks album to be produced by Shel Talmy and showcases one part of a mid-career high that’s still an influence today. Out on vinyl LP from Sanctuary.

Tenacious D
Blue Series 7"

America's favorite tongue-and-cheek rock duo Tenacious D finally make a return with 'Blue Series 7' - their first 7" single in thirteen years. Hilarious and a champion of power chords, this release stays true to the outfit's style - typically flicking their 'Vs' at the serious singer-songwriter mentality.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Axis Bold As Love

A re-issue for Axis: Bold As Love, the second studio album from The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Originally released in December 1967, just seven months after their sensational debut album Are You Experienced?, this album often goes unheralded in comparison to Hendrix’s two all-time classics, but this effort includes some truly magical cuts like ‘If Six Was Nine’ and ‘Little Wing’. 

The Nerves
One Way Ticket

The Nerves were a short-lived but incredible power-pop band led by the songwriting prowess of Jack Lee. You may not know the name but you'll know their most famous song Hangin' on the Telephone  - a major hit for Blondie. The band was a three pronged attack with bassist Peter Case (later the Plimsouls) and drummer Paul Collins both contributing songs. But Lee was the focus and this compilation showcases his prowess particularly in the selection of live tracks which includes Come Back and Stay  - later a hit for Paul Young!

Left Lane Cruiser
Rock Them Back to Hell!

The sleeve kinda sums this up. Delve inside and you'll get an album of punk blues from Left Lane Cruiser  - the duo of Freddy J IV and Brenn Beck. They use bass, harmonica, organ and cardboard boxes to create their voodoo hillbilly racket which is present here on a starburst coloured vinyl edition of just 100 copies.

Wild Billy Childish & The Chatham Singers
All My Feelings Denied

All My Feeling’s Denied is the new single from the Godfather of Kent garage rock, Billy Childish under the name Wild Billy Childish & The Chatham Singers. It a new version of a Billy Childish classic which has been reworked and given the Chicago blues treatment. The b-side, which is exclusive to this 7” is a cover of Willie Dixon’s I’m Ready.

Pussy Galore
Pussy Gold 5000

'Pussy 500' is a reissue for Record Store Day of deconstructivist New York no-fi blues garage slackers Pussy Galore. This is the band's second 12'' release. Following their debut E.P 'Groovy Hate Fuck', 'Pussy 500' first came out in 1987 on the band's own label 'Shove', the original pressing of which sold out almost immediately. 

Crime
San Francisco's First And Only Rock 'N' Roll Band: Live 1978

Characterised by their high intensity rock 'n' roll arrangements, along with their slick aesthetics, Crime are still a punky West Coast treasure in the US. This live version of their 1978 'San Francisco's First And Only Rock 'N' Roll Band' is a 35 minute time capsule containing one of the band's raucous live shows.

David Bowie
Alabama Song

Alabama Song by David Bowie was originally released as a single in 1980. It is David Bowie’s version of a Bertolt Brecht poem set to music by Kurt Weill in 1927. As Bowie was an admirer of Brecht’s work, he’d been playing the song live since 1978. This special picture disc 7" includes Alabama Song in its original single release form and a version from a 1978 concert recorded at Earl’s Court, along with a version of Heroes album track Joe The Lion from the same concert.

Ramayana Soul
Sabdatanmantra

Ramayana Soul are an excellent Indonesian outfit who pull off a heady blend of actual Eastern music with some of 60’s-ish Western psychedelic music that originally took influence from the East. Sabdatanmantra thus reclaims and re-appropriates at the same time, staying gorgeous and groovy the whole time! Out on Japan’s Guruguru Brain label.

Mikal Cronin
Mikal Cronin

Mikal Cronin would later to go onto fairly well known things but at the time of his self titled debut he was simply known as the guy from surf punks the Moonhearts. His solo work would take its influence from classic era 60s songwriters such as Harry Nilsson and Del Shannon charting a melodic path towards chiming guitar rock. Produced by Ty Segall and featuring John Dwyer, his debut now gets the re-issue treatment from Trouble in Mind.

Liam Gallagher
Now That I’ve Found You

Now That I’ve Found You is a single taken from Liam Gallagher’s second solo album, Why Me? Why Not? It sounds kinda like Oasis with a bit more of a ‘60s jangle. No doubt the chorus will have fans singing along at gigs, whether he reaches his dream of playing to massive fields of people or whether they’re just in medium-sized venues.

Television
Adventure

You might think that Television only made one album such is the lordation given to 'Marquee Moon'. This is their second album which, its safe to say, didn't do quite as well at the time both critically and commercially. It has a softer more layered sound which has more of a 60's West Coast vibe and could easily be seen to influence the nascent REM. Verlaine's voice is still as wiry and ragged but this sweeter side of Television should not be overlooked.  Long awaited vinyl re-issue on Rhino.

Genesis
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was the sixth album by Genesis and was originally released in November 1974. It was a concept album telling the story of a boy who lived on the streets. Whilst the concept wasn’t that far-reaching, the six-month long tour that followed was one of the most ostentatious in rock history - Peter Gabriel really went for it. This is an album you need to make time for, sit down and listen to the whole thing at once, not something you can simply dip into. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

David Bowie
The Man Who Sold The World

Parlophone remastered and reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these versions are being released individually too. The Man Who Sold The World has a strong claim to being both the first glam rock record and the album on which David Jones truly became David Bowie. 180g vinyl reissue.

Various
Brown Acid: The Ninth Trip

Brown Acid: The Ninth Trip, like Nuggets and Pebbles compilations in the past, digs up lost and forgotten classics from the 1960s. The Brown Acid series concentrates on the heavier side of things, rediscovering proto-metal and proto-stoner bands that the world has forgotten, or in some cases, never really knew. 

Those Damn Crows
Point Of No Return

Sophomore studio album from South Wales-based rock quintet Those Damn Crows, following up the word-of-mouth cult success of their debut album Murder and the Motive a couple of years back. Produced by rock veterans Andy Sneap and Colin Richardson, Point of No Return emphasises soul over riffing and the more conventional demands of rock. 

The Growlers
Natural Affair

L.A. underground legends The Growlers have been burrowing away releasing albums and building up a fanbase without too many people knowing about them. They worked with The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas in 2016, who helped hone their sound to a more radio-friendly alt-pop, a sound which has carried through to their latest, self-produced album, Natural Affair.

The Icarus Line
All Things Under Heaven

The Icarus Line are true rockers to the core, though All Things Under Heaven finds them fraying at the edges at points, sometimes straying almost into furious free jazz passages. Warren Ellis of Dirty Three and The Bad Seeds joins them at times, and you know he has taste. L.A. wildness released by the Agitated label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Ty Segall
First Taste

Perhaps they should have got someone who knows about Ty Segall to write about 'First Taste', but no, it's me. Lead single 'Taste' sounds like what I think Segall sounds like, catchy fuzzy guitars accompanied by catchy fuzzy vocals. The album even features some dual drumming with Mr. Segall bashing away on one of the drums. Very enticing!

Shoes
Elektrafied- The Elektra Years 1979-1982

Shoes were one of the great undervalued power pop bands of the late '70s and early '80s. We've bleated long enough in these pages about their early lo-fi records so it's time to find out what became of Shoes after they signed to a major label. Well they carried on making robust but tuneful power-pop - a little shiner perhaps with bigger production values but still as enchanting. This box set is the Shoes fan's wet dream taking in their three albums for Elektra plus countless demos, alternate takes and outtakes.

The Doors
The Soft Parade (50th Anniversary Edition)

The Soft Parade was the Doors fourth album originally released in 1969. As was typical of the times, the band were pressurised into coming up with new material after gruelling tours and so the album was a difficult one. It had lavish arrangements which alienated some of their early fanbase and it lacked the raw intensity of earlier work. Still, its standing has grown over the years and 50 years later it comes in an new edition remastered by original engineer Bruce Botnik. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

The Raconteurs
Consolers Of The Lonely

In 2008 The Raconteurs' legendary second album was released. 'Consolers of the Lonely' is a diverse exploration of modern rock music, including horn sections, murder ballads, and punky vocals, all tied together by the guitar playing of that bloke from the White Stripes. Released on Third Man Records, this is a must-have for fans of blues, rock 'n' roll, and guitars. 

The White Stripes
The Complete John Peel Sessions

The best place to witness the White Stripes in their early days was probably in a sweaty underground club. next best was a live and raw radio session and as usual legendary DJ John Peel was ahead of the curve and championed the duo by way of a series of Peel Sessions. This release collects the lot on a double LP which is stuffed to the gills full of self-penned classics such as Hotel Yorba and We're Going to Be Friends and a host of covers. The duo captured at their rawest and live-est.    

Giuda
Interplanetary Craft

Interplanetary Craft is the new single by Italian band Giuda, taken from their recent album E.V.A. This phase of the band has been linked to late-era Manc punk band Blitz meets early Duran Duran. Hooky pop-rock with a new wave edge. On the B side is a cover of Life’s Too Long by Glasgow band Earl Brutus.

Jonathan Richman
Ishkode! Ishkode!

Ishkode! Ishkode! was Jonathan Richman’s 17th solo album originally released in 2016. The one 6 years after O Moon Queen of Night on Earth and the one before his latest offering, 2018’s SA! It’s typical of the great man’s solo stuff - guitar, drums and lyrics that lay his beautiful soul open to us. Incidentally, Ishkode means ‘fire' in the Native American language Ojibwe.

The Vacant Lots
Exit EP

The Vacant Lots recorded the 'Exit EP' with Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre while they had a few days off tour in 2017. Newcombe put in some real work for 'Exit' - he plays most of the instruments on ‘Bells’, for one. It’ll come as no surprise, then, to find out that 'Exit' has a strong whiff of the BJM’s about it. Rock ‘n’ roll is back baby. It’s good again. Awoouu.

The Fat White Family
Champagne Holocaust

A genuine blast of fresh/fetid air, depending on which you think the UK needed back in 2013? Or merely another bunch of drug-addled, diseased attention seekers with just enough repetitive riffs and churning glam-inspired songs to get by? Whatever, 'Champagne Holocaust' was the Fat White's Oasis-referencing debut that showcased their skills in the area of publicity stunts just as much as their ability to produce scuzzy, underground garage rock.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

The Electric Prunes
Underground

Perhaps one of the lesser heralded psych-rock bands of the later '60s era were the Electric Prunes. Underground was their second LP released in 1967 and continued their tight 'n' heavy scuzzy acid psych sound. Like its self titled predecessor, it features fuzz-toned guitars and an array of psychedelic effects. Do not underestimate the influence of this one on today's array of heavy psych bands.    

The Other Half
Mr Pharmacist / I've Come So Far

The Other Half were a ‘60s garage band who featured guitarist Randy Holden. Holden would go on to have more success with ‘60s proto-metal band Blue Cheer. Their song, Mr. Pharmacist was made famous in the 1980s by The Fall. Here we have a 7” version which features I’ve Come So Far on the B-side. If you like bands such as The Sonics, then you’ll love this.

Wild Billy Childish & The Chatham Singers
Kings Of The Medway Delta

Kentish cult icon Steven John Hamper returns in 2020 with another new studio album as Wild Billy Childish, with regular collaborators Nurse Julie and Wolf Howard as The Chatham Singers, on Kings of the Medway Delta. Now well into the fourth decade of his career, expect more of WBC’s trademark Anglo-fied takes on grizzled Delta blues.

Hangman's Beautiful Daughters
Smashed Full Of Wonder

Smashed Full of Wonder is an in-depth exhumation of the complete recordings of London-based psychedelic garage rockers Hangman’s Beautiful Daughters, briefly signed to Dan Treacy’s Dreamworld imprint in the late Eighties. The tracks are re-mastered and now available on CD for the first time, with an accompanying 12-page booklet featuring exclusive images and an essay by Jowe Head (formerly of Television Personalities and Swell Maps). 

Ty Segall
Fanny

Fanny, or Fanny Dog as it’s known on Ty Segall’s last album Freedom’s Goblin, is a song of appreciation to his dog. This limited edition 7” picture disc contains the track 'three ways', as one of those new-fangled fancy chefs might put it. There’s a demo version, a live version and mysteriously described sketch version. 7” on Aagoo.

Drive-By Truckers
The Dirty South

If Uncut magazine still exists ( I think it does...just) then Drive By Truckers are probably still its house band. The Dirty South is the southern alt-country band's fifth album and their second concept album about where they grew up. It features songwriting shared out amongst the various members with leader Patterson Hood taking somewhat of a back seat but it is a fascinating document of the mythology of the south. 10/10 - Uncut magazine.

Gino and the Goons
Do The Get Around

Do The Get Around is the fifth album by Floridian low-budget, hard rocking punk band Gino and the Goons. They take their inspiration from a range of rock ‘n’ rollers such as The Ramones, Chuck Berry and Motorhead. It’s a record that they hope will inspire you to get in love and in trouble.

Ty Segall Band
Slaughterhouse

He’d been operating as a solo artist for about four years at this point, but 2012 saw the first album from the Ty Segall Band, in which our eponymous hero teamed up with Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moonheart and Emily Rose Epstein. Slaughterhouse is presented on 2x12” LPs, as opposed to the original issue which was two 10” discs.

Jonathan Fire*Eater
Wolf Songs For Lambs

Jonathan Fire*Eater were almost the next big thing in US underground rock. They signed to Dreamworks, opened for Pulp and inspired the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Interpol but never made it big time. A couple of them went on to do pretty well in the Walkmen and one of them died. Regulation stuff. But now Jack White himself asks you to look back on their career with a series of vinyl re-issues on Third Man. Wolf Songs For Lambs was their debut album which though spurned at the time, has found followers in later life.

Heaven's Jail Band
ANGELMAKER

The sleeve sorta sums up this second album by Brooklyn's Heaven's Jail Band. It's dark and weird with a troubling lyrical core and obsessions about the more grim side of life. Musically, the press release sums it up rather perfectly as Lynrd Skynrd fronted by Leonard Cohen. You want it darker? Heaven's Jail Band may just do it for you.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Colorado

Colorado is the first album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse since the epic Psychedelic Pill in 2012. The band believe that they had it in them to make an album that was equal to their best material, so they got together and gave it a go. This particular incarnation of Crazy Horse include Nils Lofgren on guitar and piano. 

JD McPherson
Holly, Carol, Candy & Joy / Red Bows (For A Blue Girl)

Retro rocker JD McPherson decided to take out all the detritus most musicians put in when making a Christmas record. That meant no sleigh bells and no cheesy cover versions. Instead, 2018's SOCKS was classic vintage rock and roll with a holiday theme and now you can buy a 'Snow Globe' 7" containing one of the album's highlights Holly, Carol, Candy & Joy plus an unreleased track Red Bows (For A Blue Girl).

There’s a lot to be said for two piece bands. It’s a challenge to get an original sound when there’s just two of you. Thankfully, Cowbell have got round the issue by having two members playing multiple instruments in this garage rock track, including hand drumming, guitar, keys, shakers, multiple voices and some stylish melodies. 7” vinyl.

Television
The Blow-Up

Recorded at CBGBs in 1978 The Blow Up is a double live LP of Television at their most raw and fiery. It sees the babd rip through songs from their classic Marquee Moon and a couple from follow up Adventure in a manner capturing a spontaneity perhaps lacking on the albums. The improvised passages and extended version of Bob Dylan's Knocking on Heaven's Door are electric. Essential listening.  

Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody (The Original Soundtrack)

I’m probably right in thinking that Norman’s stance on Queen is that they’re crap [editorial note; it's not!].....[Actual Editor's Note: It is!] . Love ‘em or hate ‘em, though, it is undeniable that Freddie Mercury was a one-off and they don’t make music like anyone else. Here we have the soundtrack to the massively successful Bohemian Rhapsody, the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen. It’s a mix of previously released Queen songs and previously unreleased songs from their legendary Live Aid performance. You also get the bonus of the 20th Century Fox fanfare being played in Brian May’s signature guitar style. The press release bangs on about sales achieved in Q4 - when did it stop being about the music, man? Double Heavyweight Vinyl LP on Virgin EMI.

Mattiel
Satis Factory

Second album proper from Mattiel, following hot on the heels of the word-of-mouth success of last year’s self-titled debut. Although the working relationship between Mattiel Brown and her producer / creative partner Jonah Swilley remains unaltered, as does the distinctive lo-fi sound, Satis Factory is a notable musical expansion. 

Royal Trux
Cats and Dogs

Cats and Dogs was the fourth album by never knowingly not wasted duo Royal Trux. It blends the experimental isn't of their previous work with an increasing song driven the Rolling Stones influence.  In fact the 'Trux often come across as a kind of mutant 'Stones,  taking their classic rock 'n' roll churn to far out sonic places. 

Fu Manchu
King Of The Road

Available on double vinyl LP on At the Dojo. Reissue of Fu Manchu’s sixth studio album that was originally released in 1999. If unfamiliar with the manchu, imagine Kyuss leaving their desert dwellings, taking a shot of whiskey. It’s stoner rock with them readdressing the sex and rock ‘n’ roll ratio.

Graham Parker
Nixon's Rules

A busy 2019 for cult English singer-songwriter Graham Parker wraps up with the release of a new 7” single on 100% Records. Referring to the barely disguised prejudice behind the erstwhile U.S. president’s ‘war on drugs’ policy, ‘Nixon’s Rules’ rails against the shameful state of the UK’s narcotics policy. The flip-side contains an extended version of the same track. 

Iggy and The Stooges
Death Trip

Don't know what Iggy is doing on that cover art but the chair has gone over and he's made a bit of a mess. Death Trip wasn't an official Iggy and the Stooges album but a collection of recordings of rehearsals leading up to their debut Raw Power. If some of the recordings sound suspiciously like the album versions then... well it's still a tantalising document of there the band were at in '73. 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Paper Mâché Dream Balloon

For their new record, titled Paper Maché Dream, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have cast aside the electricity that previously drove their massive psych-rock tracks. Instead, they present a suite of acoustic numbers, still thoroughly psychedelic but this time more reminiscent of a 70’s children’s TV show theme than a blasted jam. A nice change, on Heavenly.

The Jay Vons
The Word

Channelling a love for vintage Sixties rock and soul music but not falling into the trap of simply regurgitating the past, New Jersey-New York band The Jay Vons ready their debut album The Word. Fuelled by the lead single and title track and featuring ‘Days Undone’, included on the soundtrack for Creed, it’s set to be one of the better retro-rock albums in recent times. 

The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll.

Thee Oh Sees
Sucks Blood

Nice selling point in that this is the first black vinyl re-press of Thee Oh Sees seventh album in many years. Bugger all that coloured vinyl nonsense eh? We want the original and best vinyl colour. Produced by pop person Kelley Stolz it was the first record released on their own imprint Castle Face and is as usual jammed full of their psych rock and garage experiments. 

Headland
What Rough Beast

Australian surf music collective, Headland, make a rare foray into the world of song with What A Rough Beast. The band usually play instrumental music but here have found inspiration from installing dishwashers, faces in the sky, blood-filled footballs and how lizards feel about things for their lyrics. Not your run of the mill subjects, but no doubt all the better for it.

David Bowie
Conversation Piece

Another lavish box-set release documenting the ongoing exhumation of David Bowie’s archives, Conversation Piece is a five-CD collection that examines his evolution throughout 1968 and 1969, via home demos, BBC radio sessions and studio recordings, including with his mime-musical group Feathers. Furthermore, it includes discs to mark the 50th anniversaries of the release of the ‘Space Oddity’ single plus his second studio album David Bowie (later re-released as Space Oddity, of course.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell
Very Uncertain Times

These are indeed very uncertain times, and to emphasise this fact, Hastings proto-metalers Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell return with their fourth album, Very Uncertain Times. Despite the album’s pessimistic title, the band are here to blow your cares away and make everything seem a-okay once again. On Rise Above.

The Young Sinclairs
Out Of The Box

Virginia band The Young Sinclairs are a four-piece led by Sam Lumsford. They use a starting point ‘60s folk rock, Madchester, C86 and Paisley Underground influenced sounds but claim to be a rock ‘n’ roll band first and foremost. Out Of The Box is an album that, as the title suggests, refuses to be tied down to any genre, there’s a whole mix of sounds going on here.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Beach Slang
The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City

Those who have listened to Beach Slang before will know that their music is influenced by The Replacements. New album The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City features former Replacements bass player Tommy Stinson which front man James Alex regards as a bit of a coup. The perfect player for his punk-cum-power-pop sound. The album was produced by Brad Wood who has worked with just about everyone at one time or another.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Orange

A re-issue for Orange, the fourth studio album from garage/blues revivalists Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Originally released in 1994, and fronted by the scintillating single ‘Bellbottoms’, which played such a prominent part in the movie Baby Driver recently, the album received plenty of acclaim for its brilliantly unhinged delivery. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Genesis
Selling England By The Pound

Selling England By The Pound is the album that gave Genesis their first taste of real commercial success. The band's fifth long-player was originally released in 1973. It charted at No.3 and also contains their first top 30 hit, the strangely melodic I Know What You Like (In Your Wardrobe). Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Bruce Springsteen
Springsteen on Broadway

Der-ner-ner derrrr ner-ner-ner, on Broooooadwaaaaay! Unfortunately this new collection from The Boss doesn’t feature a cover of the classic ‘60s paean to Manhattan, but Springsteen On Broadway makes up for it by featuring plenty of Bruce. Taped at his 2017-2018 run at NYC’s Walter Kerr Theatre, this collection is a masterful retrospective from a man ageing more gracefully than most. Springsteen chats and croons his way through some of his hits from down the years. Occasionally his wife Patti Scialfa turns up to accompany him.

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
Marc Riley Session 2019

Legendary garage punk hero Wild Billy Childish dropped in on Marc Riley’s evening show on BBC Radio 6Music at around Easter time this year with his CTMF outfit and performed a session, with one newbie and three classics from Thee Headcoats. For those who missed it, they’re presented on a limited edition 7” EP! 

Ty Segall
Pig Man Lives, Volume 1: Demos 2007-2017

If Ty Segall hasn't released enough music already then it's now time for the 4LP demos retrospective. This collection contains 47 sketches that became albums such as Manipulator and Freedom Goblin and is sequenced randomly so you fly back and forth in time. Seriously he's going to bankrupt his loyal fanbase at this rate.  

The Kinks
Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)

While it was met with confusion on its original release in late 1969, The Kinks’ seventh studio album Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) aged incredibly well and is now regarded as a masterwork. To mark its 50th anniversary, BMG is releasing a lavish box set containing four CDs, four 7” singles, softback book featuring essays and interviews, printed memorabilia and enamel badge. Essentially, the final word on one of the Sixties’ most distinctive records.

Small Faces
Four To The Floor EP

The mother of Eddie Piller, founder of Acid Jazz, was responsible for the original Small Faces fan club, so I guess Acid Jazz releasing music by Small Faces is the holy grail for them. Four To The Floor is an EP of Small Faces instrumental tracks showing off their soulfulness filtered through their Mod style. Sleeve notes by Small Faces drummer and only surviving member, Kenney Jones.

White Reaper
You Deserve Love

A first major-label release for Louisville-based quintet White Reaper, who’ve been doggedly carving out a name for themselves in the alternative rock scene over the last five years, an ascendancy that has seen them support The Killers. You Deserve Love is the group’s third studio album overall, and arrives on CD and green coloured vinyl. 

GA-20
Lonely Soul

GA-20 love the blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll. Their love for this music has seen them create authentic, raw sounding roots music that they felt was missing from the modern world. Lonely Soul is built on the solid foundations laid by Lazy Lester, J.B. Lenoir, Earl Hooker, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and Junior Wells.

Various
The New Testament

Dirty Water’s latest compilation The New Testament seems single-handedly dedicated to keeping the primal, destructive thrills of rock’n’roll alive, collecting six bands from countries ranging from France to Japan and inviting them to contribute a brand new track as well as a golden oldie. On Dirty Water.

Allah-Las
LAHS

After a solo run out under the name Paint, Pedrum Siadatian returns to the womb that bore him, i.e. Allah-Lahs. LAHS is the band’s fourth album. There’s a palpable togetherness about this album, but their sun-bleached melodies and soft psychedelia remain at their core. On Mexican Summer.

Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind
Get Down Get With It

Jim Jones (Thee Hypnotics, the Jim Jones Revue etc) and pals return with a slab of explosive garage rock and one of the most popular racket slices played on their recent tour. Get Down Get With It has already been a hit for such legends as Little Richard and Slade and is a call to arms to stop moping in the corner about the state of the world and get your feet on the dancefloor. Limited 7" vinyl for independent stores only.

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray. Various versions include outtakes and demos.

Thee Oh Sees
Carrion Crawler / The Dream

He never stops does he? This was Thee Oh Sees 2011 album originally culled from two planned EPs (hence the double header). Possibly because of that it's a little longer than the usual Oh Sees output clocking in at a near progressive rock 40 minutes. It was recorded pretty much live to tape and exudes a sound that John Dwyer himself describes as pummel and throb.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Starcrawler
Devour You

Starcrawler’s well received self-titled debut, showed a band starting out and perhaps didn’t capture what the band really do. For their second album, Devour You, they’ve hired producer Nick Launay, who has worked with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, L7 and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was able to capture the essence of their live shows, albeit without making anyone bleed or breaking anyone's fingers, and help the band make a follow-up with a harder edge. 

The Mystery Lights
Thick Skin / In The Darkness

It's all change in the world of New Yorkers the Mystery Lights as they move out of the 60s into the hip and happening 70s for this latest record.  The group's no-wave sound and big backbeat are said to bring to mind older purveyors of the darker side of life such as MC5 and the more experimental side of the Velvet Underground.

King Salami and The Cumberland Three
Kiss My Ring

Ooph...rude! Oh that kind of ring. This is London garage rockers King Salami's fourth full length record. You may remember them from television's UK's Best Part Time Band where they showcased their ability to rework 50s and 60s blues and garage influence for modern ears. The Cumberland Three are ex members of the Parkinsons and together they blast out sweaty riotous music that recalls the Mummies, the Trashmen and Bo Diddley. Put on your dancing shoes right now.

GospelbeacH
Let It Burn

Thank God for that capital H or I'd be mixing them up with all the other things named Gospelbeach out there. This GospelbeacH is the pet project of Brent Rademaker of Beechwood Sparks and other Los Angeles curiosities alongside late, lamented guitarist Neal Casal. They play sunshine soaked West Coast rock something along the lines of Gram Parsons full of rich harmonies and twangy guitar solos.

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
Last Punk Standing

Last Punk Standing is the new album by Wild Billy Childish and CTMF. Artist, poet and musician, Childish is a legend of the Kent garage rock scene and has been making music with numerous bands since the late ‘70s. Last Punk Standing features a guest performance from the late Mark E. Smith, which must be one of his last ever appearances on record.

Ghost Wolves
Crooked Cop

Crooked Cop is the new single from Austin, Texas duo, Ghost Wolves. They mix rootsy blues, punk and garage and add the modern twist of electronic sounds here and there - this is something you’ll know if you have any of their 5 albums, of course. This new 45 is the perfect sound for Third Man Records. 

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean sounds more like an algorithmically-generated Third Man Records artist than an actual human who Jack White brought into the fold (and, if the rumours are to be believed, was romantically involved with at one point). But hey ho, I guess the man who probably gets his friends to all call him Spooky Johnny Depp has a nose for a signing too. ‘Night Owl’ is the first single from Jean’s upcoming LP of the same name, and the girl-group-indebted garage-surf tune is indeed a fine bit of Third Manitude. This 7” release of the track comes backed with Jean’s cover of the Bollywood classic ‘Jaan Pehechaan Ho’.

Liam Gallagher
Why Me? Why Not.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

The Rolling Stones
Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Edition)

Let It Bleed is one of the very best albums by The Rolling Stones. It is bookended by the classic songs Gimme Shelter and You Can’t Always Get What You Want and features the blues/rock centrepiece Midnight Rambler. It was released in 1969, in between Beggars Banquet (1968) and Sticky Fingers (1971). An album from a magical period in the band’s history is getting a 50th anniversary makeover as a luxurious box set, standard LP and CD.

Howlin Rain
Under The Wheels: Live From The Coasts Vol. 1

Howlin’ Rain must be a band that any self respecting rock fan would walk over broken glass to see live. Their classic rock template is wide open for extended solos and live improvisation. Under The Wheels: Live From The Coasts Vol. 1 is a collection of the band’s favourite recordings that are intended to show how they work as a live band and to form a deeper connection with their fans.
  • Genre(s):

The Hussy
Looming

The Hussy a decade old trash-punk band straight outta Madison Wisconsin who have put a slew of their chaotic garage rock out on a variety of labels. Looming is their first album since founding members Bobby Hussy and Heather Hussy were joined by a third wheel the impressively hyphenated Ty-ler Fassnacht. Its of a darker hue than their earlier high octane scuzz with ruminations on divorce, loss addiction and of course these politically turbulent times. 

David Bowie
Space Oddity

Space Oddity is the classic Bowie hit and, as with a lot of classic hits and records (and lets face it not-so-classic records) they continuously get repressed and reissued and recoloured and rewritten and reproduced and remastered etc etc. However, this sweet collection of 7"'s with posters and prints and all sorts is a real treat for fans of...urm...David Bowie.

The Modern Lovers
Live

Led by Lou Reed-fanboy supreme Jonathan Richman, The Modern Lovers were and still are renowned for their upbeat summer rock sounds. Live sees the band play perhaps their sweetest songs, with generally unworried and happy songs. Great summer sounds to lend your night that stylish vintage edge.

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.
