EG Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Killing Joke’s self-titled debut full-length album tore out of the gates in 1980: now it receives a reissue on the Caroline label. Killing Joke is a violent slab of post-punk vigour that still has a bite to it today. Pressed to picture disc vinyl bearing an image from a Northern Irish Troubles riot. Edition of 1000.
Another Green World is Brian Eno's third solo album and marks the beginning of his move from rock-based compositions to the ambient work he pursued in the late '70s. It contains some of his best known tracks such as St Elmo's Fire and the beautiful title track and is notable for guest spots from Robert Fripp, John Cale and Phil Collins.
Killing Joke’s third album Revelations was recorded in Cologne under the wise production talents of Conny Plank. He seems to have helped the band make their gothy post-punk sleeker, setting them up for a dash more commercial success. Pressed to picture disc vinyl in an edition of 1000, out on the Caroline label.
Killing Joke released their second album, the enigmatically titled What’s THIS For…!, in 1981. The band self-produced the record, maximising the stripped-back aggressive minimalism of their post-punk thrashings. Fierce and funky. Pressed to picture disc vinyl in an edition of 1000, out on the Caroline label.
The Bonce himself gets his 1978 LP Music For Films reissued. This is, y’know, one of those Brian Eno albums. Sure, it’s a bit of an odds-and-sods collection; yes, the tracks here are quite short when compared to the long-form half-music of something like Music For Airports; OK, it’s not that similar to what he was doing with Talking Heads at the same time. But this is still an album by Brian Eno. You know what you’re in for, and what you’re in for is nice cloud music.
