Half Japanese
Invincible

....And they are invincible aren't they? Jad and David Fair have long been proponents of outsider music but now in 2019 they sound rather steady and listenable if it weren't for Jad's screechy freeform vocals which continue to give the band an air of unpredictability in the best traditions of Daniel Johnston and Jonathan Richman.

The Bevis Frond
We’re Your Friends, Man

The Bevis Frond, constantly led by nice man and excellent songwriter Nick Saloman, release their umpteenth (and then some) album, We’re Your Friends Man. With guitar chops that match Neil Young, J Mascis and Jimi Hendrix and melodies that give The Beatles a run for their money, there’ll always be something to warm your heart or get you jumping around like an excited child on one of their albums. 2LP and CD on Fire.

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Following on from the re-issue of their classic 'Hex' here is a re-press of their much overlooked follow up 'Codename: Dustsucker'. Though at this point Bark Psychosis were really just frontman Graham Sutton this is a strong follow up retaining the same eerie late night atmospheres and adding in more obvious hints of shoegaze. Talk Talk's Lee Harris guests on an album that will appeal to fans of the late work of his band and that of Slowdive.

Spacemen 3
The Perfect Prescription

Reissue of Spacemen 3's second album, which was a wide eyed clash of droning guitar fuzz, psychedelic avant-garage propulsion and heady atmosphere. The line up shift had given rise to an evolved sound, allowing for more space to breathe, casting those shimmering tremolos further out into the stratosphere.

Pere Ubu
Final Solution

Reissue of the second and arguably best single by Pere Ubu. Controversially titled, Final Solution was informed by the bleakness of the band’s hometown, Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-seventies. It’s a prime slab of noisy, American punk rock and pretty essential to any record collection. Limited to 1000 copies, 7" on Fire, b/w Cloud 149.

Josephine Foster
Fairy Faithful Harmony

I wonder if she can remember the time she played in Shipley? Here is a song cycle of 18 new songs by the Spain based singer songwriter. Here she self produces and accompanies herself on all kinds of instruments including guitar, piano an organ on an album exploring themes of morality and mortality. Which you do when you've been to Shipley.

Death And Vanilla
The Tenant

Here is a first vinyl press for Death and Vanilla's unreleased live score for 'The Tenant' (Roman Polanski). They recorded it in 2015 in Spain alongside a showing of the film and shows the bands at their most cinematic, avant garde and minimalist.  Amazing that people still have anything to do with Polanski's work but it's a funny old world.

Orchestra Of Spheres
Mirror

Orchestra Of Spheres hail from New Zealand and make a kind of funk-pop-rock-afro sound not too far removed from pioneers of such sounds Talking Heads. Mirror is their fourth album for Fire Records and sees them expanding on their sound with orchestral elements and tape experiments. They are pretty way out, and it seems that they are moving further in that direction too. Alexander Tucker of Grumbling Fur and Robert Scott of legendary NZ bands The Bats and The Clean are among their celebrity fans. LP and CD on Fire Records.

The Lemonheads
Varshons II

The Lemonheads first album since 2009 and it's......another covers album. This means that Evan Dando hasn't released one single original song since 2006. Still, the Lemonheads were kings of the cover version in their day and here take on the likes of Yo La Tengo, Bevis Frond, NRBQ, the Eagles, the Jayhawks and loads more.

Mary Lou Lord
Got No Shadow

Mary Lou Lord gave the world her debut LP Got No Shadow in 1998, issued via a since defunct sub-label of Sony. Two decades later this remarkable blend of indie-rock and folk gets a wider, remastered release on Fire. A collection of a baker's dozen of songs drawn from sets that Mary Lou performed for weary commuters passing through London and Boston underground stations; both self-penned and made collaboratively with Nick Saloman of The Bevis Frond. A taut, emotive and bittersweet LP with cameos coming from Money Mark , Elliott Smith and Jon Brion.

Groundhogs
Blues Obituary

Groundhog Day: Bill Murray’s opportunity for self-discovery repeated every day. Groundhogs Day: the same British album reissued on one format or another at least once every decade. Happy Groundhogs Day! Someone out there is determined for this band to remain in circulation, and with their prodigiously early take on psychedelic blues, you can hear why. This latest iteration also includes a few extras.

Kristin Hersh
Possible Dust Clouds

Possible Dust Clouds is the tenth solo studio album from Throwing Muses leader Kristin Hersh. It’s an album of contrasts, dark and light, loud and quiet, chaos and calm. It’s her first for Fire Records and is being ‘bigged up’ as return to form, and we know the heights that form has reached in the past. LP and CD on Fire.

Hater
Siesta

Despite their name Hater are quite the romantics at heart. The Scandinavian four piece play heart-on-sleeve indie rock with memorable melodies, chiming guitars and just a bit of synth haze.  A perfect summer soundtrack that has led them to be compared to the Chills, Snail Mail and the Concretes.

The Chills
Snow Bound

I've just danced around the room and celebrated as if I'd won the World Cup as there's a new the Chills album due. The legendary New Zealand group returned in 2015 with the excellent Silver Bullets which was as good as anything they recorded in their heyday. Their precise yet emotional economic pop is certainly welcome round here.

Giant Sand
Returns To Valley Of Rain

Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea. They got the original line-up back together, augmented by two newer members and some proper equipment.

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.
  • CD (FIRECD370)

Pere Ubu
Cloudland

Prior to Cloudland being released in 1989, Pere Ubu had been silent for seven years. In the intervening years the band’s only constant member, the ‘out-there’ vocalist David Thomas, had kept his hand in by releasing a solo album. Cloudland was a critical success and contained the single Waiting For Mary which earned them their only Billboard chart placing, which is quite a feat for such an avant-garde bunch. LP and CD on Fire.

Pere Ubu
Worlds In Collision

Following a seven year break, avant-garde Ohio rockers, Pere Ubu signed to major label, Fontana for a three album run. Worlds In Collision was the second of that bunch and was originally released in 1991. For this album, legendary keyboard player Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, The Residents) joined the band.

Infinite Music
A Tribute To La Monte Young

The music of La Monte Young: minimalist, transcendental, timeless. Well, now a trio of talented people have channelled LMY to make Infinite Music - A Tribute To La Monte Young. Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), Etienne Jaumet and Celine Wadier got together to perform an evocative live rendition of this music at Teatro Maria Matos on Lisbon. It's now available for all to experience, on the format of a magenta tinted vinyl LP. On Fire records.

The return of Fire records "Lost Library" series is a stormer with Jane Weaver singing atop Virginia Wing on a Suzanne Menzel song, Noveller tackling John Carpenter's 'The Thing' and Death and Vanilla re-imagine Bert Jansch's “Moonshine”. All showcase the female fronted bands on Fire's roster. So even better right?

Why Not?

Why Not? is the latest instalment of twisted shambolic indie-pop from Jad Fair’s Half Japanese. Over a 42 year career the band have made 16 studio albums that will make you laugh, cry, dance, shout and whatever else you feel like doing. Album #17, Why Not? is no exception. Vinyl LP and CD, and if you’re quick enough, you might get a copy of the limited edition indies only white vinyl version!

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collaboration with XAM Duo was excellent so we have high hopes for this.

Josephine Foster
A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

Classic renditions of German poems that have been previously released and (as some of you may have noticed) have sold out on all platforms....until now! This is a remaster of A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing sung by Josephine Foster with brand spanking new artwork. But act fast because this is limited to 1000 copies and will more than likely sell like popcorn in a cinema. Available on vinyl LP and released on Fire.  Note: The video used on this page is a sample of one of the same songs (An Die Musik) just with a different album art.

Pictish Trail
Who’s Comin’ In?

The Pictish Trail is just one of many projects that Johnny Lynch is involved in. From running Fence Records and Lost Map Records, the musically obsessed Scot has also collaborated with James Yorkston, Malcolm Middleton and Adem with whom he formed Silver Columns. Recent events in his life include supporting Belle and Sebastian and signing to Fire Records to release his new album Future Echoes from which Who’s Comin’ In? is lifted. This 12” features remixes by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and KT Tunstall, credited as Tunnelz.

Pere Ubu
Dub Housing

Too many Pere Ubu records have been allowed to slip out of print, so here, to coincide with some shows, the group are reissuing a few early records on Fire.

Too many Pere Ubu records have been allowed to slip out of print, so here, to coincide with some shows, the group are reissuing a few early records on Fire. The Modern Dance is their searing 1978 debut, a furiously powerful mash of industrial-tinged rock and weird concreté sounds. Remastered from the original tapes.

Modern Studies
Welcome Strangers

Recorded in the charmingly-named Pumpkinfield Studio in Perthshire, the elaborate Welcome Strangers is what Scottish quartet Modern Studies did next. Drawn from the myriad interests of all four members, the album dresses a core of folk-pop compositions with all sorts of subtle electronics, experimental instrumental and recording techniques and a wide array of sound sources.

Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing enormo-dromes have kindly re-issued their earlier hard-to-find work including this album that according to his review seemed to cause Phil immense personal hygiene problems on first listening.

Bardo Pond
Is There A Heaven

The harvest this year is a good one. Bardo Pond bring their annual cover EP, featuring Roxy’s In Every Dream Home a Heartache as well as Albert Ayler’s Music Is the Healing Force of the Universe, both reworked to killer, almost-15-minute, richly fuzzy and overdriven compositions. There’s only 1000 worldwide, only a few of which are sold by us!

Jane Weaver
The Architect EP

Featuring this years most pretentious press release (which we'll do our best to transcribe into actual words) is this new 12" from top notch Manchester kraut pop lass Jane Weaver. The lead track is eight minutes of kraut grooves and gives fans who loved her 'Modern Kosmology' record more propulsive cosmic pop. Plus two more new tracks and obligatory Andy Votel mix.

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.

The Bevis Frond
The Auntie Winnie Album

The Auntie Winnie Album was the sixth album to be released by psychedelic rock act The Bevis Frond. Originally released in 1989, it is ripe for rediscovery. The Bevis Frond is essentially Nick Saloman who writes, produces and performs everything with bits of help here and there. He is one of the most underrated artists working today and his influence has reached artists such as Teenage Fanclub, Juliana Hatfield and Dinosaur Jr.

The Jazz Butcher
In Bath Of Bacon

Well what would you expect from an act called The Jazz Butcher and an album called Bath Of Bacon? This record serves up a portion of playful (and only occasionally jazzy) vignettes with surrealistic lyrics and intriguing instrumental accompaniments. Its an alternative cult classic though, and this 1983 treasure is now reissued on vinyl by Fire!
  • Vinyl LP (FIRELP461)

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.

America's most stretched out jam band are back with another set of space rock drone anthems that are totally unafraid in 2018 to contain lashings of flute.

Beautiful Despair is an unreleased album by cult indie band, Television Personalities. Unreleased until now, that is! The album was recorded, but unfinished in 1990. Some tracks appeared in different guises elsewhere, but this is the first time they’ve been released in their original form. A couple of the tracks mention their indie contemporaries, Lawrence from Felt and Evan Dando from The Lemonheads, recalling experiences they’d shared.

Recorded in 1993, its a very fine album of post-blues music from slide-guitar supremo Rainer Ptacek and his Das Combo bandmates. The Texas Tapes feel intimate and fragile, as if some songs are on the point of vanishing into dust. This vinyl reissue with download code includes a number of demo versions and mixes by Billy Gibbons (he of ZZ TOP fame). On Fire.

Rainer Ptacek (a member of Giant Sand) was a talented slide-guitarist working in a blues / post-blues mould, weaving powerful and intimate performances with his desert voice and knife-edge steel-stringed guitar.

Hater

Red Blinders, the new EP from Swedish indie band, Hater boasts Marr-esque guitars and vocals reminiscent of fellow Swedes, The Concretes. The mix makes for melancholic hug. The band’s debut album, You Tried, which was released in 2016 made critics compare them to Canadian indie-poppers Alvvays and The Pretenders as well as ‘60s psychedelic rock pioneers Jefferson Airplane. It all certainly makes for an interesting proposition. 12” Vinyl and CD on Fire.

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' centre piece 'Pyramids'/ 'Where the Poor Can Reach the Moon' and pairs them with exclusive versions of ‘Night Of Chill Blue’ and ‘Walk On The Beach’ which were both recorded Karma Sound Studios in Bang Sarai Thailand in 2013. What were they doing in Thailand you might ask? With music this good, I really don't care.

Giant Sand overlord Howe Gelb presents a follow-up to his loungey-jazzy piano-centric Future Standards record with Lona Kelly. Further Standards combines a pair of brand new songs with live elaborations on that album’s material. It's a cool listen for cool cats, and offers enough variation on the original recordings to be essential listening. Further Standards is released by Fire

The Bevis Frond
Son Of Walter

Son Of Walter is the 15th album by The Bevis Frond and was originally released in 1996. At this time, Nick Salomon worked alone in his bedroom, head bursting with ideas, desperate to get his refried psychedelia on tape. The album mixes strummy folk-pop, multi-layered harmonies, pysch-pop and epic guitar wig-outs that would make J Mascis blush. Reissue LP and CD on Fire.

Jane Weaver
Modern Kosmology

Sometimes a change is as good as a rest. Jane Weaver's early records (including those by her excellent band Misty Dixon) were lovely under the radar folky affairs but it wasn't until she started to invoke in vogue kraut and psych influences on 'The Silver Globe' that some overground success came her way. Modern Kosmology threatens to continue down that cosmic path (just look at that title). Sure to be one of 2017's more anticipated releases.

Bark Psychosis

'Hex' formed part of the first wave of post-rock made whilst the likes of Mogwai were in short trousers but it has more in common with the splintered atmospheres of late period Talk Talk, a meticulously conceived masterpiece of mood and emotion.

ESG

Television Personalities
The Painted Word

Eighties underground post-punk group Television Personalities were a key part of the scene, lead by Dan Treacy’s smart lyrics and songcraft. 1984’s The Painted Word is their fourth record and one of their finest, winning much love for its slightly darker and more psychedelic sound. It receives a very handsome black / marbled white vinyl reissue here, courtesy of the Fire label.

It’s getting a very handsome black / marbled white vinyl reissue here, courtesy of the Fire label.

Victoria Williams
Victoria Williams & The Loose Band 'Town Hall 1995'

Back in 1995 country starlet Victoria Williams was on tour and eventually landed at an unnamed Town Hall (we're guessing Pudsey) where this live set was recorded. Lou Reed turns up for a duet (which actually puts paid to our hunch that this was recorded in Pudsey) and a good impromptu time was had by all.

Virginia Wing
Rhonda

Probably one of the better Record Store Day releases this year, ace London quartet Virginia Wing tease you a couple of new tracks from what will be their brand new record in due course. If it's anything like the last one it will appeal to fans of Broadcast, Stereolab and fans of all things kraut and pop.

The Bevis Frond
Bevis Through The Looking Glass

Bevis Through The Looking Glass was the third album by Londoner, Nick Saloman's band The Bevis Frond and was originally released in 1987. It features guitar solos that would make J Mascis jealous and catchy melodies to make The Beatles rethink their status, all wrapped in a big psychedelic blanket.
  • Vinyl Double LP (FAME441LPX)
  • Limited edition

The Bevis Frond
Triptych

Originally released in 1988, Triptych was the fifth album by The Bevis Frond. This sprawling classic features the track Lights Are Changing which is one of their very best songs. It also featured on the classic psych compilation, Children Of Nuggets, which showcased the best of a second wave of psychedelic rock, a category in which The Bevis Frond are quite comfortable.

The Chills
Silver Bullets

Silver Bullets is The Chills first new record since Sunburnt in 1996. Their distinctive, complicated and smart guitar pop mixes lyrics of desolation with memorable, bright melodies. The Chills, along with bands such as The Clean and The Verlaines were part of The Dunedin Sound - a style of indie-pop from New Zealand with a jangly guitar sound.

Pere Ubu
Drive He Said 1994 - 2002

The Fire label have repressed three of experimental art-punks Pere Ubu’s underappreciated later albums, and included some rare bonus material as well. Drive He Said includes Raygun Suitcase, Pennsylvania and St Arkansas, albums which capture the band’s freeform intensity and their complete refusal to conform to genre. This four LP box-set also comes with a download code.

Close Lobsters
Firestation Towers 1986-1989

C86 eh? Fun while it lasted. There were many great bands ...and many of these great bands who claimed that they weren't all jangly and fey. Thing is on the C86 tape only about a third of it was jangly and fey. Close Lobsters appeared on that legendary tape and this is a collection of their two studio albums and a single collection in a big 3LP package. I expect to see some excited fringes flapping about on RSD....and now along comes the CD if you missed out on the vinyl.

Noveller
A Pink Sunset For No One

Noveller is filmmaker Sarah Lipstate’s solo musical project, in which she extracts whole oceans of sound from her electric guitar. A Pink Sunset For No One is a broad selection of her sound: Noveller is probably best known as a drone artist, but this album gets involved in territory that goes as far as psychedelic rock. CD / LP release on Fire.

Half Japanese
Hear The Lions Roar

Everyone either does or should love Half Japanese, the expression of a brotherly love for weirdo rock music to be played with no regard for conventional technique. Hear The Lions Roar is their brand new record: it's as fun as ever, and apparently features many of the musicians who worked with the band in the 90’s for maximum good old times. CD and vinyl (black or lilac) editions on Fire.

New Picnic Time

New Picnic Time is the third album by Cleveland, Ohio’s experimental art-rockers Pere Ubu. It was originally released in 1979, it continued a run of classic albums that also included The Modern Dance and Dub Housing.The sessions for the album were so stressful that the band split after recording only to reform with Mayo Thompson replacing original guitarist Tom Herman.

Pere Ubu

Architecture of Language brings together four remastered vinyl LPs, New Picnic Time (1979), The Art Of Walking (1980), Song Of The Bailing Man (1982) and a new collection of extras. The perfect music here runs from punk, to shronking free jazz with some funk and glam thrown in too. The set comes with a lovely poster and download codes as well.
  • Vinyl LP box set (FIRELP422)

Virginia Wing
Forward Constant Motion

Virginia Wing’s second LP ‘Forward Constant Motion’ sees the band deviate towards a more expansive, focused sound but still retains some of the cosmic darkness of debut LP ‘Measures of Joy’. Still showing signs of a propensity for dreamlike, otherworldly themes, this record melds a successful hybrid of the sleepy new age of Laurie Anderson and Homework-era Daft Punk, resulting in a bold and imaginative contemporary pop record. Includes a digital download card.

Las Kellies
Friends & Lovers

Las Kellies are one of the finest garagey outfits operating out of Argentina, where they keep the grrrl flame burning brightly. Friends & Lovers is a lovely shimmering groove-garage set that makes the listener think of happy times in the sun. Friends & Lovers is released on CD and on LP by the Fire label.

Howe Gelb
Future Standards

In constantly shifting in styles and approach Howe Gleb's next solo offering, Future Standards, is a delicate and smooth jazz expedition. Inspired by the greats this piano-led record is meant for pure relaxation, and offers a host of new timeless ballads on top of an already bulging and acclaimed back-catalogue.

Cardinal
Cardinal

Cardinal are a duo made up of American singer/songwriter Eric Matthews and Australian Richard Davies (The Moles). Giving 60s orchestral pop a modern twist with lush harmonies and soft melodies. Originally released in 1994, this eponymous debut album was at odds with the noisier guitar bands that were all the rage at the time. The CD contains bonus tracks including early demos and more.

Howe Gelb
'Sno Angel Like You + 'Sno Angel Winging It

Giant Sand man Howe Gelb had a rather fantastic experience performing on the same bill as a number of gospel choirs in 2003, and decided to bring a choir into his own solo work on 2006’s ‘Sno Angel Like You. This reissue presents the beautiful, sensitive results alongside the feature-length documentary ‘Sno Angel Winging It, making for a hell of a package. On Fire.

Rats On Rafts / De Kift
Rats On Rafts / De Kift

Rats On Rafts / De Kift is not a split, no no. This is a full-blooded collaboration, with the two different flavours of Dutch joy being combined into one single band. The songs played are taken from Rats On Rafts and De Kift’s respective catalogues, with punky flair and ensemble brass mixing remarkably well together. Fun stuff on the Fire label.

Scott & Charlene’s Wedding
Mid Thirties Single Scene

Scott and Charlene's Wedding always strike me as the kinda guys that getting out of bed is the biggest undertaking of each day. That they can even get it together to record songs is therefore a surprise but there's something in their rough and ready compositions that cuts through all the intellectual bullshit elsewhere. These are primitive barely rehearsed singalong songs about nothing much at all. Enjoy.
