Beggars Banquet Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

Like the similarly-vaunted Rough Trade, Beggars Banquet spawned out of a brick-and-mortar venture. The first Beggars Banquet shop opened in Earls Court in 1973, and soon there were a string of the shops throughout West London. Five years later shop f...read more »

Bauhaus
Mask

Quite simply, one of the greatest post-punk / proto-goth albums of all time. Even better than their near-perfect debut, 1981’s Mask saw Bauhaus successfully expand their template while retaining everything that made them so beloved when they broke out. The album is presented on limited-edition yellow vinyl here. 

The Fall
458489 A Sides

It's taken Beggars some time to start with The Fall re-issue programme but here it is and it starts with the perfect introduction to The Fall for the faint-hearted. 458489 A Sides was how I got into The Fall myself as it contains all their singles from the Brix Smith era generally seen as their most user-friendly period. Of course this is only a slither of the whole story... but if you have to start somewhere...

The Fall
The Frenz Experiment (Expanded Edition)

The Frenz Experiment was the 10th album by The Fall and first came into this world in 1988. It’s now getting the expanded reissue treatment. The expansion includes a previously unreleased BBC session and their version of The Beatles’ classic A Day In The Life. The original album includes a cover of The Kinks’ Victoria, which The Fall released as a single at the time. Cracking stuff. On Beggars Arkive.

The Fall
This Nation's Saving Grace

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! This Nation’s Saving Grace, an album by The Fall that almost everyone seems to agree is a classic slice of Fall: impressive, given how hard it is to get that fanbase to agree. Major level Fall, get involved.

The Fall
Schtick: Yarbles Revisited

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! The curiously (kuriously?) titled Schtick: Yarbles Revisited compiles This Nation’s Saving Grace era singles along with their 1985 Peel Sessions, all rounded out with an old track first heard in 2011. Quality odds and ends from your friendly neighbourhood Fall.

Buffalo Tom
Birdbrain

Birdbrain was check shirted slacker rockers Buffalo Tom's second album released a whole 30 years ago so what better time for a vinyl re-issue. Fellow guitar slinger J. Mascis helped with production on an album which cemented the Boston band's melodic alternative rock sound and contains many track the band still play in concert even today.

Bauhaus
Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape

Live actions from Bauhaus circa 1981 -1982, compiled from a variety of shows from Paris to Liverpool. Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape features all the best Bauhaus material from this time with added live energy, with particular highlights including an epic, near-ten-minute version of ‘Bela Lugosi's Dead’ and a cover of John Cale’s ‘Rosegarden Funeral Of Sores’.

Freeez + John Rocca
Southern Freeez / Variations On A Theeem

Freeez were a London-based funk band, formed in the late ‘70s, who spearheaded the Brit-Funk movement. They were led by producer John Rocca. Southern Freeez was their debut album, originally released in 1981. This reissue comes with a bonus LP, Variations on a Theeem, which contains seven brand new tracks recorded by John Rocca. Giles Peterson is a big fan.

Biffy Clyro
Vertigo Of Bliss

Who designed that sleeve and have they been cancelled yet? Vertigo of Bliss was the second studio album from Ayr -based rock monsters Biffy Clyro and perfectly exemplifies their bag of tricks metal sound. The band can't sit still for a minute lurching from full on scream metal to pastoral interludes to progressive squiggling. On this expanded edition there's a bonus side of non-album B sides.

The Icicle Works
5 Albums

It's easy to forget how popular the Icicle Works once were. They were a band who took the power of post-punk and blended it with classic '60s inspired songwriting but added a stadium-leaning sheen which made you want to pump your fist in the air but avoided the cliches and bluster of the likes of U2. They scored lots of hits such as Love Is a Wonderful Colour and Hollow Horse and this box set gives you the opportunity to own their first five albums on one big box set. 

The Charlatans
Tellin Stories

Tellin' Stories was the fifth album by Northwich area baggy troubadours the Charlatans but was by some way their most successful. The album was the final Charlatans record to feature Rob Collins who died in a car crash midway through production. It contains top ten hits in the North Country Boy, One To Another and How High. The pinnacle perhaps of their recording history and now out on heavyweight vinyl double LP.  

Bauhaus
The Sky’s Gone Out

Reissue of The Sky’s Gone Out, Bauhaus’ 1982 third album. With tracks like ‘Exquisite Corpse’ and ‘The Three Shadows’ (in three parts), this is a slice of full Goth-rock, beloved by all the serious Goths around. This reissue features freshly HD remastered audio, using the original master tapes as source.

Bauhaus
Burning From The Inside

Reissue of 1983’s Burning From The Inside, the fourth and final album made by Bauhaus in their original incarnation before their split that same year. Illness meant less Peter Murphy and more from the rest of the band, with interesting results. Includes ‘She’s In Parties’. This reissue features freshly HD remastered audio, using the original master tapes as source.

The Charlatans
Between 10th & 11th (Expanded Edition)

Between 10th & 11th is the second album by The Charlatans. It was originally released in 1992. Here we have an expanded reissue on clear vinyl and CD. You get the original album plus the highly sought after live show dubbed 'Isolation 21.2.91' which was recorded in Chicago. Includes the singles Weirdo, Tremolo Song and I Don’t Want To See The Sights.

The Charlatans
Melting Pot

A long overdue repress of the greatest hits album covering the earlier career of the Madchester survivors who weren't from Manchester. This has pretty much all the essential tracks from the years 1990 to 1997 when the Charlatans were signed to Beggars Banquet. Including indie disco staples, 'The Only One I Know' and 'Just When Your Thinking Things Over', a remix from the Chemical Brothers of 'Patrol' and lesser known gems like 'Can't Get Out Of Bed'. Double vinyl press.

Mark Lanegan Band
Bubblegum

It's safe to say that Mark Lanegan knows everyone. For his 2004 album Bubblegum he drafted in members of Queens of the Stone Age, Afghan Whigs, Guns 'n' Roses as well as his own ex-wife. His voice has become a somewhat malleable thing over the years but here growls what it is good at - whiskey-soaked bluesy churns about death, guns and alcohol. 

The National
The Virginia EP

Cast your mind back to 2007 - ‘Umbrella’. The Pick Of Destiny. Hilary Duff. Then The National's Boxer came out and suddenly people couldn’t get a enough of the dapper Manhattanites and their stylised Americana. A year later the band were big enough to curate an ATP lineup and have a documentary made about them. The Virginia EP, a collection of B-sides and rarities from the Boxer sessions, was released around the same time in order to tide over the band’s new fanbase until High Violet dropped.

The Fall
The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall (Expanded Edition)

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! Here we have a deluxe double pack that combines the (relatively) ‘mainstream’ The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall with The Wonderful and Frightening Escape Route of The Fall. Bargainous reissue goodness.

The Fall
The Wonderful And Frightening Escape Route To The Fall

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! The Wonderful and Frightening Escape Route of The Fall gathered together two singles and an EP, and was first released in 1984. The last Fall album with a double drummer line-up by the way. This LP reissue is freshly remastered.

The Fall
Bend Sinister / The 'Domesday' Pay-Off Triad-Plus!

We're still literally scratching the surface with the Fall re-issues, Beggars have been first off the mark and here re-issue 1986's semi forgotten Bend Sinister alongside a bunch of extra tracks culled from various singles. The CD has even more bonus stuff from peel sessions and even some unreleased takes. LP comes with replica program for the Riverside production of ‘Hey Luciani!’   

Gary Numan
The Pleasure Principle – The First Recordings

The Pleasure Principle - The First Recordings is a bunch of demos and outtakes from the sessions that produced Gary Numan’s first solo album. The songs were recorded mid-April, 1979, whilst Tubeway Army’s second album, Replicas, was residing at number one in the album charts. Numan decided to drop the Tubeway Army name and release the album under his own (stage) name.

Gary Numan
Replicas – The First Recordings

The second and final album from Gary Numan’s band Tubeway Army before Numan embarked on his celebrated (and ongoing) solo career, Replicas housed the UK chart-topping hit ‘Are Friends Electric?’ Now, the early sessions for the seminal record, including a John Peel session, are exhumed and presented on double ‘sage green’ vinyl. 

The Cult
Sonic Temple (30th Anniversary Edition)

Released in the spring of 1989 and housing some of the group’s most popular songs, The Cult’s Sonic Temple represented the apex of their commercial success. Having been out of print for 20 years, it gets a deluxe 30th anniversary re-issue, on double vinyl, 5xCD box set and a special 7xLP limited edition collection. 

Bauhaus
Crackle

So dark, so doomy but if the sight of Bauhaus's back catalogue fills you with dread but you still want to get on board then this could be a good place to start. It is the career spanning 'best of' containing such goth anthems as Bela Lugosi's Dead and She's in Parties. No cover of Fun Fun Fun but they do attempt to cover their prime influencer David Bowie on Ziggy Stardust. Cloaks at the ready.  

Gary Numan
Dance

Gary Numan’s fifth album, 1981’s  Dance, gets a much-needed reissue. After squishing the original 50 minute album onto one LP, compromising the sound of the recording, it now gets room to breathe over three sides of vinyl, with a fourth side being filled with singles from the era. Numan’s famed electro-pop gave way to some jazzier stuff as he introduced saxophones to the album. Guests include Mick Karn from Japan and Roger Taylor from Queen. Purple vinyl 2LP on Beggars Banquet

Gary Numan
I, Assassin

Hey Gary, I get the feeling you’re supposed to be hiding in the shadows but you appear to be standing in the light of streetlamp. You’ll get seen, y’know. However bad an assassin Gary Numan may make in reality doesn’t matter. What does matter is that we have spiffy reissue of his 4th solo album, I, Assassin, which was originally released in 1982. It contains the hits Music For Chameleons, White Boys and Heroes and We Take Mystery (To Bed). Green vinyl LP on Beggars Banquet.

Bowery Electric
Lushlife

Bowery Electric’s third and final LP gets reissued via Beggar’s Banquet. Lushlife was originally unleashed in 2000, and boy does it sound it. This one’s got that real Moby/Mr. Scruff/Saint Etienne vibe to it, all mushy old film score samples and crackling breaks. It’s a pleasingly atmospheric listen and worthy of the re-release.

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

In 1988 The Fall, in collaboration with the Michael Clark Company, staged an experimental ballet about William of Orange's ascension to the throne. Mark E Smith and co. handled the music side of things and the ensuing album was christened I Am Kurious Oranj. Reissued by Beggars Banquet to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary.

St. Vincent
Marry Me

There’s definitely a line to be traced from her 2007 debut LP ‘Marry Me’ to the sort of cyborg-rocker aesthetic St. Vincent shows off nowadays - for one thing, the record shows off the same sense of wry detachment that has always been a feature of Annie Clark’s music. However, this album is also a lot more whimsical than something like ‘MASSEDUCATION’, churning influences from baroque-pop, leftfield indie ala Dirty Projectors and industrial-pop into a set of uncanny valley rock nuggets.

Buffalo Tom
Let Me Come Over - 25th Anniversary Edition

Flannel shirted Boston rockers Buffalo Tom get their 'Let Me Come Over' classic re-issued to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Full of grungy heartfelt songwriting and quiet loud dynamics the band's music is perfect angst ridden college rock to nurse you through the bad times. Comes with bonus album of the band blastin' through the album in London back in '92. 

Biffy Clyro
Blackened Sky (Expanded Edition)

Blackened Sky was the debut album from future rock behemoths Biffy Clyro. It shows the Scottish trio in a pre- weird facial hair stage but with their changes of mood and changes of time signature already intact. This re-issue  - perfect for latecomers to the band through their more popular albums  - comes with a bonus album of rarities and B sides.   

The National
Boxer

The National's slow but steady rise to popularity is a well timed heart warm for anyone frustrated with the here today, gone tomorrow nature of modern music. Like R.E.M before them it took a good few albums before they got stadium sized. 'Boxer' was their fourth album and could be said to be the one where the band truly broke through. It catches the band honing their brand of emotional, poetic rock music ready for the big league and features a nice cameo from neighbourhood pal Sufjan Stevens.  

Gary Numan & Tubeway Army
Premier Hits

Wow! Premier Hits is a full compilation of literal hits from synth-pop pioneer and industrialist Gary Numan, with (of course) his Tubeway Army in tow. The songs are split over four sides of vinyl, the first time this collection has appeared in this format. Includes favourites like ‘Cars’ and ‘Are Friends Electric?’. On Beggars Banquet.

In Camera
Era

In Camera are late seventies, early eighties London post punkers, early 4AD label mates with Bauhaus, The Birthday Party, MASS, Modern English, Rema- Rema, The The to name but a few. In Camera enjoyed a short lived but intense period of musical innovation during which they released a small amount of much celebrated and sought after material. ‘Era’ comprises their early material with their three singles on disc one and eleven previously unreleased tracks on disc two including demos, live recordings and a recently discovered rehearsal tape.

The Fall
The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! Next up is The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall, a relatively ‘mainstream’ (gasp!) Fall album, full of hooks. One of the first Fall albums to feature premium action from Brix too. Remastered LP or cheap CD.

The National
Alligator

In the story of The National it is generally understood that 2007’s Boxer was their breakthrough LP. While that was undoubtedly a big moment for the group, this narrative does something of a disservice to the band’s preceding record Alligator, an album which has shifted an impressive amount of units and placed high on many ‘Best of 2005’ polls. It’s more than deserving of a re-press, which it now gets courtesy of Beggars Banquet. As for what Alligator sounds like? Well, it sounds like The National.
