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.

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.

Flat Worms
Into The Iris

Flat Worms are an LA band who move in those vivid psychy circles surrounding Thee Oh Sees (the last Flat Worms album came out on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label) and Ty Segall (he recorded Into The Iris, in his house no less). That means they deliver high levels of energy and lots of fuzzy fun! This little EP is released by God?

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

Of all the things I’ve heard in recent times, Peaced and Slightly Pulverized may be the most American. David Nance (from David Nance Band-fame) is a guy from Omaha who makes rock songs with mildly-country harmonics, whaling guitar solos and titles like Ham Sandwich. Recommended if you like America or have trouble choosing from lunch menus.

Endless Boogie
Vol. I + II

Vol 1 & 2 (aka Black and White) by New York band Endless Boogie are the earliest, and much sought after, recordings by the band. They were quickly put together from archived recorded when they were unexpectedly asked to play the Slint-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. They are now back in print and readily available for any fans of the band who were unaware of their earliest days. On No Quarter.

David Bowie
Boys Keep Swinging

The David Bowie re-issue fest continues with a 40th anniversary re-press of Boys Keep Swinging. The track was the first single to be taken from his then current Lodger album and here contains I Pray, Ole on the B Side a track unreleased since the Lodger re-issue. Picture Disc shows a nice pic of Dave singing.

The Mystery Lights
Too Much Tension!

Very scrappy and committed punk rock from The Mystery Lights. For WICK (a Daptone subsidiary), the band release their second album Too Much Tension! This is a record that moves like a cannon, barrelling through while drawing on the likes of The Kinks and Television. Best is the lead singer's powerful yelp that acts as guide to the the songs. 

Strand Of Oaks
Eraserland

Strand Of Oaks head-honcho Timothy Showalter keeps on keeping on with new LP Eraserland. As with 2017’s Hard Love the hairy heartthrob sticks to his modern-day Springsteen schtick on his latest record. Cuts like ‘Weird Ways’ have a beefy, grunge-inflected low-end to them. Eraserland is out via Dead Oceans.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Jimi Hendrix and his Experience released their last studio album Electric Ladyland an entire half of a century ago. Any of the 321 pressings of this album archived on Discogs that you may have are now obsolete because here’s the ultimate, the one to reign supreme... at least till the 51st Anniversary. Freshly remastered and buffed with early versions and other unheard studio outtakes, a bluray documentary, a 48-page colour booklet with lyrics, poetry and essays, and, ohhh yes, the 5.1 surround version of the album we all need. It also sports the cover art that Jimi actually originally wanted, so that’s a plus as well.

David Bowie
Beauty and The Beast

Limited 7” picture disc boasting a newly remastered version of the Fripp-assisted “Heroes” opener, previously released as a single in the start of ‘78. That’s not news to anyone perhaps, but the b-side may be more of a draw for fans - a previously unavailable live version of Blackout, fittingly recorded in Berlin later that year. You’ll know immediately whether you need this or not!

Reigning Sound
Abdication... For Your Love

New edition of Reigning Sound’s 2011 LP Abdication… For Your Love here, courtesy of the good people at Merge Records. If you like your garage rock full of dinky organ melodies and delivered with a whole hunk of Southern charm, then this is right record for you. Reigning Sound main man Greg Cartwright has some serious songwriting chops, you know.
  • Genre(s):

Wolfmanhattan Project
Blue Gene Stew

The Wolfmanhattan Project is a nice little noise-rocky effort. After releasing a first single in 2015, the band’s finally pulled themselves together for their debut album Blue Gene Stew. I guess it must be difficult to find time to record if your members are also playing with Sonic Youth, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Gories.

Guadalupe Plata
Three Demons

Spaniards Guadalupe Plata have become perfectionists. Whereas on previous albums they were content with banging out tracks in a couple of takes, while recording Codigo Barras things reached the point that someone compared them to My Bloody Valentine. They don't sound like Kevin's lot mind, taking a more Americana/desert rock/post-punk approach for their songs.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Forgotten Graves

Ooh they love a 10" don't they? Two new tracks from the ever fruitful the Brian Jonestown Massacre including 'Forgotten Graves' which is exclusive to this release and has been written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first world war. Over on the flip is  “Tombes Oubliées” which has been culled from their forthcoming self titled LP (their second of 2018).  

David Bowie
Pin Ups (Picture Disc)

Pin Ups is David Bowie’s 1973 covers album, in which our hero sets aside his original songwriting (which was of course on fire at this point) in favour of a selection of his personal 60’s English favourites. The Who, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and The Yardbirds all get Bowied here, on an album that still divides many fans. Picture disc reissue edition.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

The Doors
The Doors

There’s so much to be said of The Doors but the only words truly worth listening to are those that the band recorded to wax and there cannot be any better starting point than their eponymous debut album. An electrifying LP with heavy hitters such as Break on Through (To The Other Side) and Soul Kitchen, the LP finishes with eleven brooding minutes of bubbling insanity, and surely the band’s most recognisable track - The End.

The Resonars
No Exit

No Exit is the 7th album by Tuscon, Arizona band, The Resonars. Whilst there’s definitely a whiff of Oasis about this, there’s a stronger sense of the glorious vocal harmonies and melodies of bands such as The Hollies and Big Star. The band is a vehicle for the songwriting talents of Matt Rendon. He has also released a one-off psychedelic album under the name Butterscotch Cathedral. On Trouble In Mind.

The Clang Group
We Do Wie Du

Nothing warms the cockles of our hearts more than someone saying ‘Monks cover versions’ - and so it is with the legendary proto-post-punk act The Clang Group, who return with a one-off 7” single for Domino of the cult heroes’ ‘We Do Wie Du’, after their 2016 album Practice.

Brett Smiley
Sunset Tower

Sunset Tower is a collection of  previously unreleased songs by US singer/songwriter, Brett Smiley. The only album he released in his lifetime was 1973’s Breathlessly Brett - which positioned him as a Jagger/Bowie hybrid and was produced by Andrew Loog-Oldham. These recordings saw Smiley backed by The Robbs and produced by Del Shannon.

The Tomboys
Here We Come! The Tomboys!

Here they come! The Tomboys! Courtesy of the ever-demented Soundflat Records! The Tomboys are a four-piece powerpop-punk girl band from Kobe, Japan. It seems they’re here to cheer you up with lively riffs, immaculately chirpy vocals and ecstatic late-song key changes. Prepare to be tomboy’d.

A Place To Bury Strangers / The Telescopes
Split Single No. 6

More Fuzz Club split single action, this time extolling the rather more industrial sounds to normal of A Place To Bury Strangers. Blazing, gritty stuff it is too. They are teamed up with The Telescopes, whose foreboding little cover of The Stooges pairs fabulously. 10 more inches of top action in this exciting series.

Giuda
E.V.A.

Ooh I do like a bit of glam rock, always happy to see that there are bands making more of it. One of those bands is Giuda from Rome, whose fourth album E.V.A. is also their first for Rise Above. The music is of course charmingly schlocky, and more confident than it has any right to be. But as with all good glam rock, the songwriting is good enough that you probably won't care.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Black Bombers
Volume 4

You'll never guess where Black Bombers are from... no? Bit oblique? Any bands with a noteworthy Volume 4? They don't sound much like the album's name sake, taking a more guns blazing, engines roaring, rock AND roll approach. This mini album shows a band who are sure enough about what they do that they can fill it to the brim with heart.
  • Genre(s):

David Bowie
Spying Through A Keyhole

For their latest post-Bowie cash-grab we find Parlophone throwing together a collection of bespoke 7” singles of formative work by the late Starman. Spying Through A Keyhole features a bunch of demos, rarities and other ephemera, the most immediately arresting of which are a couple of early versions of ‘Space Oddity’. Please note that these are bedroom demos rather than studio tapes, and as such the recording quality is a little more down-at-heel.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Garcia Peoples
Natural Facts

It probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn, with a name like Garcia Peoples, that the New Jersey band are influenced by The Grateful Dead. The band are built on intertwining guitars and lengthy jams. They mix this classic rock fixation with the lop-sided approach of bands such as Pavement, which make them a rather interesting prospect. Natural Facts is their second album. On Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Ty Segall & The Freedom Band
Deforming Lobes

It’s rare that there’s a time without a new Ty Segall studio album either newly released or on the horizon. Just to make sure you don’t forget he exists there’s Deforming Lobes, a live album recorded live to tape in LA by Steve Albini. He’s backed by The Freedom Band who’ve been his musical unit of choice since 2016. LP, CD and Cassette on Drag City.

Jimi Hendrix
Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix

Which is the best Jimi Hendrix album? Probably this one as it contains all the best of his songs including 'Crosstown Traffic', 'All Along the Watchtower' and 'Foxy Lady'. Anyway if you are new to the guitar maestro then this would be a good place to start. They've spread it across a double album too.   

Snakerattlers
All Heads Will Roll

Brilliant back to basics rock and roll from Yorkshire group Snakerattlers, exiling anything approaching excess flab and instead focusing on an exhilarating fusion of rockabilly, garage, and punk. Its electrifying in its bare boned reductionism; snotty, sweaty, and devious, this is shameless retro worship but it would be hard to deny the sense of mayhem and joy.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
Weasels Ripped My Flesh

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. Weasels Ripped My Flesh is one of his best-loved albums with The Mothers Of Invention, being a frenzied blend-up of edited live recordings that refers to all sorts of experimental music modes in typically playful Zappa style. 180g vinyl reissue.

David Bowie
Hunky Dory

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Hunky Dory is Bowie’s 1971 triumph, containing several of his most immortal songs, including ‘Changes’ and ‘Life on Mars?’. Remastered in 2015.

The Coathangers
The Devil You Know

Garage rockers The Coathangers have been around for a while, making unpolished punk for over a decade. Based on first single Bimbo, it sounds like The Devil You Know is actually going to stray away a bit from the band we know. The three girls seem to have taken a deep breath and embraced a somewhat more polished sound. Let's see how it pans out.

Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind
CollectiV

Jim Jones returns with his latest band, The Righteous Mind, ready to do some more rock stuff. As you know, Mr Jones loves to rock and roll, preferably in a gnarly and psyched-up fashion, and this new album CollectiV delivers all that in spades, with tracks like ‘Meth Church’ and ‘Sex Robot’ setting the tone. Released by Masonic Records.

Witch
In The Past

Now-Again continue to tell the story of Witch and their garage rock/funk hybrid by reissuing 'In The Past', a record initially released back in 1974. Witch -- also known as We Intend To Cause Havoc - fused genres gleefully into a sound unprecedented within the Zambian scene beforehand. 'In The Past' is a Zamrock cornerstone.

Nick Waterhouse
Nick Waterhouse

Innovative Leisure drop the fourth LP from blue-eyed soulster Nick Waterhouse. As with the Michael Kiwanukas and Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reeds of this world, you get the sense that Waterhouse has quite possibly never listened to a record that wasn’t cut for either Motown or Stax. His eponymous record is a meticulous recreation of sounds and styles from an era that, sadly for Mr. Waterhouse, will never return.

Paul Weller
Other Aspects Live At The Royal Festival Hall

Featuring on the cover a very useful and revealing 'side view' of his hair, this is an immaculately presented recording of the Modfather's live set at the Royal Festival Hall back in October 2018. Paul Weller looks back over his career and includes renditions of the Jam and the Style Council tracks but typically avoids the big hits in lieu of rare and deep cuts. 3LP & DVD set or 2CD & DVD set is your choice.

Sundara Karma
Ulfilas' Alphabet

Reading hipsters Sundara Karma attempt to transition from buzz band to in-it-for-the-long-haul band with sophomore LP Ulfilas’ Alphabet. The nuts and bolts of this shift are that they’ve done a Tame Impala and beefed up their arena-indie sound with some disco and that. Single ‘One Last Night On This Earth’ sounds a bit like ‘I Was Made For Loving You’ by Kiss.

Big Star
Live On WLIR

Big Star’s Live On WLIR gets a reissue. Recorded for NYC’s WLIR broadcaster in 1974 but not released as a record until 1992, this album finds the power pop pioneers running through tunes from their first two full-lengths. They also throw a nifty Loudon Wainwright III cover in there. This new edition includes extensive liner notes and an interview with Big Star bassist John Lightman. The vinyl release is the first time that Live On WLIR has been put to wax.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Quaker City Night Hawks
QCNH

Quaker City Night Hawks hail from Texas. Their music is imbued with all the hallmarks of ‘70s southern rock you’d expect to hear, plus a certain amount of Joe Walsh-era Eagles. QCNH is their fourth studio album and follow-up to their Lightning Rod debut, El Astronauta. LP and CD on Lightning Rod.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

A-Moms
Strawberry Cheesecake / Modern Noise

Third Man aficionados among you will have spotted the label’s recent Algebra Mothers compilation A-Moms = Algebra Mothers. That LP was an odds-and-sods collection focussed on long-defunct Detroit punks A-Moms. The band only released one single when together, the 1979 split ‘Strawberry Cheesecake’/‘Modern Noise’, so Third Man have decided to complete the circle and reissue that one as well. This is chaotic, maniacal new wave from a group who count Pere Ubu among their fans.

Future Glue
Devil's Pulpit EP

Glasgow group Future Glue have the sleazy twang of americana, but the bark and bite of post-punk. Like, say, The Cramps or The Gun Club, they observe that the gap between the two need not be large, and maneuver between these styles with a debauched sense of swagger, as displayed on four-tracker ‘Devils Pulpit EP’.

StumpWater
Motel In Saginaw

Interesting tale behind this one. Stumpwater are a very little known Illinois band whose private-pressed 1975 folk-rock single caught the ear of the Galactic Zoo label. After a bit of searching, they found the still-existent Stumpwater and discovered that they had recorded a whole concept album in 1973 that had never been released at all! And that is Motel In Saginaw, which you now see before you at last. Cool.

The Hold Steady
Stay Positive

Was it only ten years ago we were following Craig Finn and pals down to Minneapolis/St Paul and their breakout record 'Stay Positive'. Finn is basically a gossip over lots of catchy chunky Springsteen-ish rock with tittle tattle about what people are up to on the party scene. It was the soundtrack to my divorce which I'm still not properly over so I might as well give this another listen.

David Bowie
Never Let Me Down

What are we to make of the David Bowie album that the man himself disliked the most? The album he has described as being "awful", an album he wondered why he recorded? Whatever he thought of it, 1987's Never Let Me Down remains interesting because the man was so interesting, especially as it was conceived in tandem for the ridiculously over the top Glass Spider tour. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

David Bowie
Tonight

After David Bowie released Let's Dance he was as big as he'd ever been and decided to strike while the iron was hot. The resulting album is 1984's Tonight, which was largely successful at keeping the general public interested in him. For all its commercial ambitions Tonight remained a Bowie album, with the video for Blue Jean really being a 20 minute short film. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

David Bowie
Glass Spider (Live Montreal ’87)

Way back in 1987, David Bowie released Never Let Me Down. The ensuing tour was called Glass Spider, a show more theatre than gig which inevitably ended up being accused of being pretentious. Of course nowadays, theatrics are the norm. So maybe it's time to reevaluate Glass Spider, or at the very least its Montreal stint.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

David Bowie
Serious Moonlight (Live ’83)

1983's Let's Dance was one of David Bowie's most commercially successful albums and so needed a tour to match. Named Serious Moonlight, the tour sold much better than expect forcing Bowie into less intimate venues than planned. Perhaps this explains why it featured an uncharacteristic one costume change. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

David Bowie
Let’s Dance

Trust David Bowie to make one of the most commercially successful records of the 80s. After his Berlin trilogy where he explored the more art rock side of things he thought hey feck it I'm going to dye my hair bleach blonde work with Nile Rogers and become a proper pop star for a bit. This contains all those mega hits  - China Girl, Let's Dance, Modern Love and that's just the first three tracks. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Gemma Ray
Psychogeology

Over her seven albums to date, Gemma Ray has become known for bringing a number of styles to freshen up the singer/songwriter genre and album number eight, Psychogeology, is no exception. Here, she borrows elements from girl groups, ‘70s pop, George Gershwin, classic Pink Floyd and Serge Gainsbourg to create a widescreen view of her life. LP and CD on Bronzerat.

Hayley and The Crushers
Cool / Lame

These sound fun. Two big beards and a lady play raucous party pop with nods towards the Ramones, the Go-Gos and vibrant surf pop.  They've been making it wet and wild all across the West Coast already and their garage-tinged pop is perfectly designed to get your pool party started. Full length debt on Eccentric Pop Records.    

Alex Chilton
Memphis To New Orleans

It’s probably fair to say that Alex Chilton’s solo career was patchy, but then this was because also quite varied. He’d had hits as the singer of ‘60s band The Box Tops, made two concise albums with Big Star before making the sprawling, weird, dark but mostly brilliant Big Star’s Third. It was the approach he took to this album that ostensibly set the blueprint for his solo career. Memphis To New Orleans compiles the best of his ‘80s solo career, with many of the songs no longer available anywhere else. Reissue LP and CD on Bar-None.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Alex Chilton
Songs From Robin Hood Lane

Following the first two Big Star albums in the early ‘70s, Alex Chilton has consistently thrown curveballs at his fans with his next release. I guess Songs From Robin Hood Lane, a collection of songs from the Great American Songbook should surprise no-one, then. This posthumous compilation features 4 unreleased tracks and 3 very rare out-of-print tracks. The songs chosen all reminded Chilton of his childhood home on Robin Hood Lane in Memphis. It was recorded in 1990. LP and CD on Bar-None.
  • Genre(s):

Entracte Twist
Entracte Twist

Self-titled album on Requiem Pour Un Twister from Parisian band Entracte Twist. Post-punk in the 70s style which means: jangly guitars, driving drums and a tasteful amount of synthesiser. This is the sort of music that is described as being effortlessly cool, which certainly isn't helped by the band singing in the language of effortlessly cool, French. 

Danko Jones
A Rock Supreme

Now, A Rock Supreme is a pretty bold title to choose for your album, and whether the new one from Canadians Danko Jones achieves enough greatness to warrant the presence of Coltrane’s ghost or not is up to you. What you can be sure of though is lots of high-rock, high-energy rock action, delivered at speed and without too much self-seriousness. On Rise Above.

Thee Hypnotics
Righteously Recharged

A huge vinyl box set from 90's rockers Thee Hypnotics called Righteously Recharged . . . probably called this because it's a collection of their tracks 'recharged' so to speak. This box set contains all sorts of goodies including Come Down Heavy on a violet vinyl, Soul, Glitter & Sin on a red vinyl, The Very Crystal Speed Machine on a clear vinyl (this one was never actually released in the UK!!!), plus early demos and journalist notes. Remastered and released on Beggars Arkive.

The Struts
YOUNG&DANGEROUS

They don’t make ‘em like this any more, except they very much do. The Struts are the band for any of you out there who have been missing The Darkness these past few years. Young & Dangerous (or should that be YOUNG&DANGEROUS? Does it matter?) is the Derby group's sophomore LP, though to be honest you could tell us that this lot have been making music since 1973 and we would take it at face value. The fact that The Struts were picked as the support act for the last ever Mötley Crüe gig speaks volumes.

The White Stripes
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself / Who's To Say

Two covers here, actually: while this 7" project offers one White Stripes single plus one White Stripes cover, "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" was originally written by Burt Bacharach and familiarized by a soft, serenely romantic adaptation by way of Dusty Springfield. There's the Stripes' pretty raw, half-punx version on here, plus "Who's To Say", originally Blanche's. 
  • Genre(s):

Writhing Squares
Out Of The Ether

Writhing Squares put out their second LP ‘Out of The Ether’ via Trouble In Mind following a debut on Siltbreeze - a label known for underground legends like Harry Pussy, The Shadow Ring and The Dead C. Writhing Squares sound here has this churning psyche quality, topped off with spaced-out guitar fuzzery and squawks of sax. It’s a satisfying fusion of various underground strands, from the squelchier end of industrial to Hawkind-esque jam rituals.   

Twin Temple
Twin Temple (Bring You Their Signature Sound.... Satanic Doo-Wop)

If you say that you have a signature sound but have to spell out what your signature sound is immediately afterwards then is it even your signature sound? Not to split hairs or anything, just an observation. Anyway, at least Twin Temple have the courtesy to let you know what you’re getting into with a title like Twin Temple (Bring You Their Signature Sound…. Satanic Doo-Wop). All you Postmodern Jukeboxers out there will enjoy Twin Temple’s wiccan Winehouse shtick.

Mark Sultan
Let Me Out

Mark Sultan is described as an entrepreneur on his Wikipedia page for some reason. No citation. There are citations for his being part of the messy garage rock set playing with the likes of Black Lips and King Khan. And Let Me Out is messy garage rock. Guitars, heartfelt vocals, and a sense things could fall apart any second.

Various
Las Vegas Grind! Volume Seven

Volumes one through six of the Las Vegas Grind compilation series were assembled and issued many years ago, beginning in the late 80’s, but now at long last there is a seventh volume! Las Vegas Grind! Volume Seven is of course a low-down and dirty listening experience, straight out of the garage. Bob Moore & The Temps, Gay Papa, Louie & The Fat Men, and many more.

The Detroit Cobras
What More / I Can’t Go Back

Just in case any of you were still in any doubt that Jack White doesn’t put on for his hometown, the former White Stripe has signed a band with Detroit in its name to Third Man Records. Let his love for the motor city lie unquestioned until his dying day. Apparently ‘What More’/‘I Can’t Go Back’ are the first new recordings that The Detroit Cobras have released in a decade, though as they’re both covers we can’t go so far as to call them new material. Either way, they are both definitely garage rock.

Queen
Greatest Hits

If you recently saw the film Bohemian Rhapsody and want to learn more about the band behind the man behind the mustache, Queen’s Greatest Hits is just what you need. Includes all your favourite hits like Don’t Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You. Be warned: does not include the soundtrack to the 1986 film Highlander.

Escape-ism
Live at Third Man Records

Ian Svenonius - he of Chain And The Gang and The Nation Of Ulysses fame - has been busying himself with his Escape-ism project of late. It sounds pretty much exactly like what you'd imagine a Svenonius solo endeavour would sound like. Live At Third Man Records does a good job of capturing Escape-ism’s freakified Jonathan Richman thing.

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 some of its guts and contradictions. Here The Rebel presents two tracks on a seven inch single on Jack White’s Third Man.

The Doors
Waiting For The Sun

Waiting For The Sun is album numero three from classic waistoid crew The Doors, now seeing reissue after it originally hit the shelves many moons ago, way back in 1968 when we weren't even sex cells in our mummy's and daddies psychedelic paisley underpants. Morrison and the gang get their groove on, with such favourites as ‘Hello, I Love You’ and Vietnam war track ‘The Unknown Soldier’.

U2
No Line On The Horizon

This is the one by redundant stadium rockers U2 about the fictional characters of a drug addict, a soldier and a traffic police officer. Eno, Lanois and Lillywhite did the rather good production. It also got Taylor Deupree all in a flap because it has the same cover as an album he did with Richard Chartier. Bono, didn’t you know that photos expire after one use?

Khana Bierbood
Strangers From The Far East

Khana Bierbood are Thai band who came up with their blend ‘60s surf, ‘70s garage rock and traditional sounds after hours of jamming together. Their name, which translates into English as Strange Brew, gives further clues to their influences. The band have been together since 2012, but Strangers From The Far East is their first album. Fans of Thee Oh Sees, Dengue Fever and La Luz would be encouraged to give this a listen. LP and CD on Guruguru Brain.

The Monkees
Greatest Hits

Were The Monkees cool? The 60s pop four-piece were assembled by TV producers to sing the songs of Boyce and Hart among others, but they had a certain charm. They definitely got a bit cooler when Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork started writing songs and Davy Jones could claim to be the world’s greatest tambourine player. This Greatest Hits LP was originally released in 1976 and includes Last Train To Clarksville, Listen To The Band, (I’m Not Your Stepping Stone), Daydream Believer and Pleasant Valley Sunday.

Starcrawler
Hollywood Ending

L.A well-to-do's Starcrawler release a brand new single with (thankfully) no songs taken from their earlier self titled debut.  They've upped the ante, poured even more money into it and have come up with something the press release describes excitedly as a 'bold but winsome pop jam'. Rough Trade have pinned their flag to this lots mast so we'll soon see whether it proves fruitful.

Mattiel
Customer Copy

Customer Copy is the second release by Mattiel. She was raised on a diet of ‘60s folk and pop including Donovan and The Monkees. She mixes these influences with her own musical discoveries such as The White Stripes to create an album heavy on retro sounds. Imagine Nancy Sinatra fronting The White Stripes with Mark Ronson advising…..sort of. On Burger Records.

Laughing Hyenas
Life of Crime

Life Of Crime was the second album by Michigan garage rock band Laughing Hyenas. Released in 1990, it’s arguably their finest moment, with the band mixing the power of punk with conviction of the blues. It was produced by Butch Vig, and it has been said that it was his work on this album that led him to produce Nirvana’s Nevermind and Sonic Youth’s Dirty. LP on Third Man.

Laughing Hyenas
Hard Times + Crawl / Covers

Laughing Hyenas were a garage rock band from Michigan. Their last album was Hard Times, released in 1995 on Touch & Go. It saw the band eschewing their usual Nick Cave-meets-Iggy Pop aesthetic in favour of some Chicago blues heroes such as Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. This reissue on Third Man pairs the album with their final two EPs, Crawl and Covers. Liner notes by original Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert and Allyson Baker from Dirty Ghosts. Double LP on Third Man Records.

Thee Headcoats
Elementary Headcoats (The Singles 1990 -1999)

Thee Headcoats were one of Billy Childish’s bands, active through 90’s. Elementary Headcoats compiles their 90’s singles, including the likes of ‘I’ve Been Fucking Your Daughters And Pissing On Your Lawn’. Scrappy, snotty, punkishness. Double CD or triple LP on the Damaged Goods label.

Oh! Gunquit
High On Xmas / Don’t Believe In Christmas

Another Christmas 7" this time from the peculiarly named Oh! Gunquit (name inspired by the Maine harbour town of Gunquit) who make two Christmas party anthems for your festive mayhem.  Their sound is described as a "vibrant blend of new-wave vicious psych-surf, garage-punk, exotica & rock ‘n roll" which sounds like the sort of thing to get even non dancing people like me up on the dancefloor.

Satan's Satyrs
The Lucky Ones

Satan’s Satyrs singer Clayton Burgess (also of Electric Wizard) says of his band that ‘it doesn’t sound like anything else happening right now’. He’s correct - The Lucky Ones sounds like something that happened many years ago, specifically some time around 1974. The band’s attitudes to women (that God-damned album artwork) bare out the theory that this lot are a relic from a bygone age. We can all do better than this.

Johnny Mafia
Princes De L’amour

French garage guys Johnny Mafia announce themselves to the wider world with second album Princes De L’amour, a high-energy rush of frenzie punk underpinned with solid songcraft. It’s not the most original of sounds, but it is hard to deny the bouncing, grinning appeal of garage-punk done right like this. Out on Dirty Water.

David Bowie
David Bowie aka Space Oddity

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Here is Bowie’s second album under his stage name, released in 1969. Along with early folk-Bowie, it also provides the first glimmers of the genius that was soon to arise. 2015 remastered versions.

Reverend Horton Heat
Whole New Life

Reverend Horton Heat released their first album, Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em, on Sub Pop in 1990, just as grunge was getting its teeth into the world. However, unlike their plaid-clad contemporaries they played psychobilly and rockabilly music and dressed as if the ‘50s had never ended. They have have a rich history of touring, firstly on the coattails of Motorhead and Sex Pistols whilst giving a leg-up to bands such as Soundgarden, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and White Zombie. Their 12th album and first in four years is Whole New Life. LP and CD on Victory.

Fu Manchu
Daredevil

Beginning life in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced, hardcore punk band called Virulence, Fu Manchu went on to become a household name in heavy, stoner rock, alongside contemporaries such as Kyuss, Sleep and Monster Magnet. Originally released on the legendary, now disbanded label Bongload, this is the second reissue for ‘Daredevil’ on the bands own record label At The Dojo.

David Bowie
Glastonbury 2000

It's almost hard to fathom almost 20 years on that David Bowie's hair was so long and luxurious at his show at Glastonbury in 2000. But there you can see is pictorial evidence of it's length and lustre. It's only one reason why his performance was so legendary that night. Now for the first time you can hear (or see) the entire show which has never been broadcast in it's entirety. There's also bits and bats of extras too like David's diary from the night and a reprint of Caitlin Moran's original review of the show.

Fatty Cakes and The Puff Pastries
Fatty Cakes and The Puff Pastries

Riotous queer-core and vibrant punk pop from San Franciscan five piece Fatty Cakes and The Puff Pastries who play dayglo riot-grrl inspired pop with serious messages about gender and body image. Fans of the B52s, the Gravy Train and Le Tigre should be taking careful notes.

A-Square (Of Course)

King Of The Hill Mr. Jack White loves nothing more than a bit of ol’ timey garage rock. Indeed, reissuing lost records by ancient Midwestern proto-punks is probably the thing that drags him into the Third Man Records office every morning. As such, he’s probably loving every minute of A-Square (Of Course). This one’s a compilation LP of Detroit scuzz-rock focussed on the city’s influential A-Square Records. MC5 are on here. A young Iggy Pop plays drums and does the vox for The Prime Movers.

Alastor
Slave To The Grave

Swedish doomsayers Alastor proudly boast that their latest LP Slave To The Grave is a ‘7-track hateful gospel’. I don’t know if you’d necessarily describe this music as hateful - most of the melodies are actually pretty tasteful - but it’s certainly heavy. This is the sort of psych-y doom metal that has kept Black Sabbath in business all these years. The lead singer’s stage name is Dharma Gheddon, which is fun.

Brown Acid: The Seventh Trip

RidingEasy present another compilation of their carefully curated vintage hard rock obscurities! Brown Acid: The Seventh Trip (which surely ought to be the most powerful yet!) contains ten cuts from ten bands who were hard-chugging away in the seventies to the attention of almost no-one, all fully-licensed and from analogue sources.

The Kinks
The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society

Now regarded as their finest moment, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society is now seen as the highlight of the band's long career and certainly the high water moment of the pastoral English phase of their development. Now you can get the album in an enormous box set with 2 LPs, 5 CDs, 3 7"s a book and all kinds of memorabilia. For those with smaller pockets the 2 x CD looks quite tasty with 49 tracks altogether or you can get the standard original LP as it was meant to be heard.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Who Built The Moon?

Who Built The Moon? is the third album by 4 parts ex-Oasis, 1 part ex-Zutons band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Noel Gallagher insists that there are a number of far-flung influences on his new band’s music and the band name, intentionally or otherwise, named after the Judy Henske song, suggests psychedelic overtones. However he made this soup, fans of Noel Gallagher’s output to date will find plenty to like here. LP and CD on Sour Mash.

Ron Gallo
Heavy Meta

Ron Gallo still claims to not know what he’s doing on his latest fuzzy opus for New West, Heavy Meta. His hope is, however, that his music will resonate with listeners. Moreover, that coming to his shows and buying his records fans will enable him to have an outlet for becoming a ‘total psychopath on stage’ in his own confrontational yet witty manner.
