The Lines
Hull Down

The Lines are something of a cult group, hanging out in that special space where no-one bought their records, but those that did held them close to their hearts. That means that the release of Hull Down will be a huge deal to a few people, being a ‘lost’ third album that has not previously been heard! Hopefu...view item »

The Trypes
Music for Neighbours

Dear God, from which deep dark recess did this spring from? I had this on a scratty tape someone kindly did for me right in the midst of my Feelies obsession back in '80-something-or-other. More truthfully, I had 4 of these tracks plus the unbelievable 'A Plan, Revised' on some comp or ot...view item »

The Prefects
Amateur Wankers

Also of huge interest (but probably less "importance" to the beard stroking massive) is The Prefects 'Amateur Wankers', an insult levelled at them by some dozy prick with no ears. This is the band that predated The Nightingales, Birmingham's post punk legends. Even Prefects transcended the constraints of punk. 'Going Through the Motions' ...view item »

The Fire Engines
Hungry Beat

The Fire Engines have another collection out. This one different to the odds and sods collection released on Domino. 'Hungry Beat' is a compilation of their 3 singles and their mini album for the 1st time collected onto one lovely CD. I have to say Brian was the specialist in this field but now he's gone I've sort of got into it a bit more. This wh...view item »

The Lines
Flood Bank

Being a real fan of the post punk explosion and all the fallout & musical schrapnel arising from that fertile era, I feel that one of the best discoveries from around that period is The Lines. A Lahndan 4 piece comprised of reserved, thoughtful types. After the frankly brilliant singles round up, they've now had both of their albums for Red records...view item »

The Lines
Memory Span

One of the great pleasures of this job is receiving unexpected anthologies of great, long lost bands from the post punk era, such as Glaxo Babies, Artery, Josef K and the like, many of which I never heard at the time. Some are best confined to those decades - like who the fuck wants to hear Theatre of Hate these days? - but there's some that h...view item »

Theoretical Girls
Theoretical Record (1978-1981)

A couple of savvy re-issues of 2 old post punk comps next. Theoretical Girls was Glann Branca, Wharton Tiers, Margaret Dewys & Jeffrey Lohn, the man with the vision. This is the missing link between The Velvet Underground & Sonic Youth. Simple as that. 'Computer Dating' is the birth of No Wave, the missing link between tough art punk & ...view item »
