The Fall
1982

A new six-CD box set documenting a pivotal year for Mark E Smith and The Fall, 1982 gathers up the two studio albums they released that year - Hex Enduction Hour, universally acknowledged as one of their very finest, and Room To Live, regarded as a difficult curate’s egg - plus contemporary Peel sessions, their singles for the Kamera label, and live album In A Hole in addition to a show in Melbourne. Also contains replica poster and 4,000 word essay from biographer Daryl Easlea. The two studio albums will be released on limited edition coloured vinyl versions separately. 

The Fall
Room To Live

Room to Live was strange stop in the continuing journey of the Fall. They'd literally only just unleashed the impressive Hex Enduction Hour when Mark E Smith marshalled his troupes for a swift follow up. The speed at which it was recorded and released makes it understandably one of the Fall's most improvised sounding works. Not an easy listen, there's a tough, raw feel to it but it contains at least one future classic in the magnificent rural sprawl of Hard Life in Country. This marble vinyl re-issue is padded out with of-the-era live recordings.

Hawkwind
All Aboard The Skylark

Bloody hell, fifty years of Hawkwind. That’s impressive no matter what you think of their music. The space-rock voyagers may be pretty long in the tooth at this point, but despite their age they show no signs of slowing down - 'All Aboard The Skylark', their thirty-second studio LP (!), is as widescreen and bombastic as anything else in their output. The CD edition of All Aboard The Skylark also comes with a bonus album of acoustic jams. That’s a lot of Hawkwind! Good thing they can still do what they do like no-one else can.

Dinosaur Jr.
Hand It Over (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Hand It Over was the final album by Dinosaur Jr before they reformed in 2005 with their original line-up. It was released in 1997 and got lost as an American rock album in the fog of Britpop. It was released on the same day as a rather marvellous EP, Take A Run At The Sun, which featured in the Alison Anders film, Grace Of My Heart. The three songs from the EP are included on this reissue along with non-album single, I’m Insane.

Dinosaur Jr.
Without A Sound (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Without A Sound was the 6th album by kings of slacker rock, Dinosaur Jr. It was originally released in 1994. It saw the band, or specifically J Mascis, writing shorter, more accessible songs. J Mascis, to some, will be remembered as the man who drove around New York in a golf buggy in the video of the album’s first single, Feel The Pain. It also includes the catchy single, I Don’t Think So.

Dinosaur Jr.
Where You Been (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Where You Been was the fifth album by Dinosaur Jr. It is regarded as one of their best and by many as one of the best albums of the 1990s. It was originally released in February 1993. Upon its release, Melody Maker raised the question, “Do we have the album of the year already?” It contains one of the band’s greatest songs in Start Choppin’. The Country-grunge crossover, Get Me was also released as a single. Essential stuff.

Dinosaur Jr.
Green Mind (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

This is the one with The Wagon on it, what more do you need to know? Okay, okay, Green Mind was the 4th album by Dinosaur Jr. Released in 1991, it was the band’s first for a major label, and first after J Mascis acrimonious firing of bassist and tape experimenter, Lou Barlow. Forget the in-fighting, just put The Wagon on as loud as you can and enjoy one of the greatest earworming melodies for weeks afterwards.

Felt
The Pictorial Jackson Review

The Pictorial Jackson Review is not only brilliantly titled but is one of the best of the latter day Felt records. It's full of wonderfully brief tunes which more often than not sound comically in thrall to Bob Dylan. Try listening to How Spook Got Her Man without thinking of the grizzled troubadour. 

Felt
Me And A Monkey On The Moon

The final Felt album saw the band go out on a rather sombre and perhaps disjointed note on an album that somewhat lacked the distinctive creativity of their previous work. That said it shows a hitherto unseen maturity with a slight country-ish feel and is notable by the appearance of pedal steel player B J Cole.

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

Felt
Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty

Felt were of course a completely unique entity. Led by the eccentric Lawrence they released ten understated but incredibly influential records across the decade we knew as the 1980s. The first was Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty a gorgeous, dark and mysterious album full of plangent guitars and Lawrence's near spoken word Lou Reed-isms. 

Sarah Cracknell
Take The Silver

Take The Silver is the second single from Sarah Cracknell’s Red Kite album. Take The Silver draws its influence from ‘60s pop, similar to her band Saint Etienne, but without the dance influence. The limited edition 7” is backed with the exclusive cut Sleepytown. Packaged in a die-cut sleeve with a unique postcard.

Membranes
What Nature Gives… Nature Takes Away

The reformation of journalist John Robb’s beloved post-punk band Membranes continues afoot in 2019 with another new album. What Nature Gives… Nature Takes Away was inspired by conversations with environmentalist and presenter Chris Packham, and covers 16 tracks over four sides of vinyl.

C87

Cherry Red dive back into the 80’s for this imagined follow-up to that legendary NME C86 compilation: the comp that launched a thousand indie bands. Everything on C87’s three discs was recorded in 1986 or 1987, so the tracklisting is ‘realistic’, not to mention stuffed to the brim with wonder: The Vaselines, Pop Will Eat Itself, Dog Faced Hermans… 3CD box-set on Cherry Red.

Various
Electrical Language: Independent British Synth Pop 78-84

Calling all fans of things synthy, this is a new compilation taking in the golden age of British synth-pop from 1978-84. There are old favourites like 'Circus Death' by The Human League, obscure (but brilliant) cuts like 'Croatia' by Basking Sharks, and stone-cold ker-lassics like 'Warm Leatherette' by The Normal and 'Touch' by Lori and the Chameleons. 

The Fall
Live At The Witch Trials

Originally released through the legendary punk label Step-Forward in 1979, Live At The Witch Trials by The Fall finally gets the reissue treatment for a new generation of fans. As a debut album it’s rugged and repetitive forging the template that Mark E. Smith would become famous for. Out on 2CD and 180 gram vinyl from Castle Music and Sanctuary.

The Fall
Dragnet

The second album from The Fall gets the reissue treatment here. Dragnet, recorded in 1979, established the routine to which Mark E. Smith would indefinitely adhere; new music and new members. In contrast to Live At The Witch Trials, Dragnet features decidedly muddy production, setting a precedent for future albums. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Castle Music and Sanctuary.

The Fall - Singles 1978-2016

Singles 1978-2016 is a career-spanning singles compilation by The Fall. Mark E. Smith’s revolving door collective have released 60-odd albums, if you include live albums and compilations, in their career. This is the first collection to bring together singles from a number of different labels. With 112 tracks over 7 CDs, this is a hefty retrospective, and to endorse its credibility among fans of the band, all tracks have been remastered by Fall engineer Andy Pearce.

Losing Touch With My Mind – Psychedelia In Britain 1986-1990

Cherry Red’s excellent series of box-sets curating various sub-genres and micro-scenes turns to British psychedelia in the late 1980s. While it includes big hitters from the era like The Stone Roses, Spacemen 3 and Primal Scream, the real joy of this 3-CD set is the exhumation of hidden gems from long-lost bands.

Inspiral Carpets
Spitfire

Well wouldn't you know it, The Inspiral Carpets are back. Now with original singer Stephen Holt in tow replacing the departed Tom Hingley, “Spitfire” is the first single to be released from their new LP which like many records by returning bands is eponymously titled. Can it be any good? Well we've not heard soundclips yet so the jury is out! Still, I reckon there's still a huge fanbase which will ensure this sells out pretty quickly.

Felt
Forever Breathes The Lonely Word

The first Felt album for Creation and the first not to feature guitar wizard Maurice Deebank. Forever Breathes the Lonely Word is kind of a bridge album between their old sound and the lighter more varied work in the second half of the eighties. As a result of Deebank's departure Martin Duffy's organ takes centre stage, wandering all over the place.   

Adorable
Footnotes - Best Of (92-94)

We'll all remember when we woke up on February 7th 2019 (or 2008 when it was originally released) to the news that there was a best of Adorable out. It's got all the classics including 'Sunshine Smile' plus loads of B sides, hard to find rarities and even an unreleased edit of a track off their debut album. That not enough for you? Well there's liner notes from all four band members plus photos and things from their personal archives. We are truly blessed.

They love a compilation down at Cherry Red Records. The label’s latest box-set is Harmony In My Head: UK Power Pop & New Wave 1977-1981.

Felt
The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories

Before he hit paydirt producing the Stone Roses, John Leckie worked on one of Felt's best and most realised albums. The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories is another meanderingly titled album from this band's whose clipped arty indie pop is anything but flabby. Mixing the Velvet Underground with classical flourishes seemed to be the mindset here and it's a wonderful combination.

The Fall
58 Golden Greats

There aren’t many bands who could release a career-spanning retrospective and call it 58 Golden Greats without stretching the truth as to the number of songs or the golden greatness of the music. The prolific nature of The Fall means that they can, however. This trans-label overview was compiled by Daryl Easlea, who knows a thing or two about the Manchester post-punk and beyond legends. The material is picked from albums running right up to their final album, New Facts Emerge. 3CD box set on Cherry Red.

Felt
Poem Of The River

For anyone that thinks all the best Felt stuff came in the first part of their career you need to hear Poem of the River. This is a glorious low key album full of glistening guitars and Lawrence's whispered vocals. Six lovely songs including career highlights Stained Glass Windows in the Sky and Dark Red Birds. Utterly essential.  

Felt
Train Above The City

Possibly one of the strangest albums ever made in that Felt leader Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and instead of their usual arty indie-pop you get an album of jazzy instrumentals composed by keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer Gary Ainge. Musically it bears no resemblance to anything else they've ever done but still fits in with Felt's ethic of being....just a bit different from other indie bands of the era. 

Felt
Ignite The Seven Cannons

Ignite the Seven Cannons, though brilliant and featuring the indie chart topping Primitive Painters always sounded as if this most clean and linear bands was lost in the fog of Robin Guthrie's swirling production. Ever the perfectionist, leader Lawrence has now gone back to remix some of these tracks to make the album sound more as intended. Re-issued as part of Cherry Red's extensive Felt re-issue campaign.

Dinosaur Jr.
Ear Bleeding Country - The Best Of Dinosaur Jr.

Cherry Red Records issue a revamped edition of Dinosaur Jr’s career-spanning compilation Ear Bleeding Country. This new version updates the 2002 original with highlights from the subsequent sixteen years of output from J. Mascis et al. There’s even a couple of tracks from Mascis side-project The Fog on this thing. Also includes a new essay by punk’s ur-dad Henry Rollins.

Felt
The Splendour Of Fear

The Splendour Of Fear is Felt's most glacial and otherworldly album. It's six tracks stretch and twist way beyond normal indie song length and as a result structure wise it kind of predates the wandering post rock of the likes of Mogwai. But Felt were full of classical flourishes aided most obviously by ace guitarist Maurice Deebank who now lives in a monastery!

The House Of Love
The House Of Love

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's time once again to delve back into the House of Love's self titled debut which remains a high water mark of their career. In 2012 we got a 3CD set but now Cherry Red have managed to swell it out to a 5CD set with even more non album, session and live tracks. But it's the original album you need which has also been spread over a double LP for maximum impact. 

Slowdive
Souvlaki

A much needed reissue of Slowdive’s second album, Souvlaki from 1993. Hailed as their best album, it doesn’t take long to see why; the classics are on here and they’re ready to make your eyes glaze over, your shoulders slump and your whole body just sink under the bed covers as their blissed, reverbing hot air balloon of sound gently takes you away. Played early in the morning, in the dark, after some booze for best effects.     CD comes as a 2 disk pack with extra tunes and two remixes.

Various
C89

C89 is a celebration of indie bands from the late ‘80s, generously spread over 3 CDs. Bands who made records on small labels without much money, and not much hope of hitting the big time. Following on from the NME’s classic C86 compilation and further unofficial sequels C87 and C88, C89 gave early exposure to bands such as Carter USM, The Family Cat, The Milltown Brothers and The Telescopes whilst further enhancing the reputations of bands that had appeared previously in the series such as The Stone Roses, The Bridewell Taxis, The Pooh Sticks, The Pop Guns and bands who recorded for the now legendary Sarah Records.

Shoes
Black Vinyl Shoes

Will you look at this thing. Shoes were THE best late 70's power pop act if you ask me. They were lo-fi before lo-fi was a thing, they had dreamy melodies to die for and they were so damn handsome. Black Vinyl Shoes is hands down their best record but now it's even better as it contains 2CDs of extra stuff from their earlier even more homespun records. It's all the pop majesty you will ever need. 

Felt
The Seventeenth Century

Would it be daft to say that Let the Snakes Crinkle Their Heads to Death is my favourite Felt album? It probably isn't but it is such a unique and unusual thing that it rises to the top when I think of their best work despite it's meagre contents and throwaway nature. Now retitled The Seventeenth Century, this all instrumental album is now available again as part of Cherry Red's re-issue programme of this fabulous band.

Contract In Blood: A History Of UK Thrash Metal

Cherry Red Records with another box set here. Thrash metal from the UK has a tough time of it. Seen as a second-class scene when compared to those of the U.S.A. or Brazil, even the larger acts - Venom, Onslaught etc. - have received comparatively little global renown. These five CDs look to change all that. Accompanied by an informative booklet and released concurrently with a book of the same name, Contract In Blood contains studio recordings, demos and live takes by both big-hitters and small-fry from the world of British thrash. Some of the cuts date back to the early 80s, and ten have never been previously released.

The Fall
Levitate

Unsurprisingly, Mark E. Smith fell out with Kier Stewart and Simon Spencer, the production duo initially chosen to produce Levitate. Lack of payment meant that The Fall’s 19th album disappeared with the the pair. An album was finished but only three tracks survived from rehearsal sessions including Spencer, which Mark E. Smith renamed Spencer Must Die! Levitate was the last album to feature bassist Steve Hanley and drummer Karl Burns, both had been with the group long enough to help shape the sound of The Fall. 3LP or 2CD on Cherry Red, remastered by Andy Pearce with sleeve notes by Daryl Easlea.

Go-Kart Mozart
Mozart's Mini-Mart

Although he's not made a great record since the '80s,  Felt's Lawrence is one of those music industry figures that it's easy to get obsessed about. A complete eccentric in a world of stodge, over the last ten years he's followed his muse into cheesy electro-pop with Go Kart Mozart (Bruce Springsteen lyric  - true). 'Mozart's Mini Mart' is another collection of oddball songs that could only come from his warped mind. Catchy too. 

Luke Haines
I Sometimes Dream Of Glue

Luke Haines, formerly of The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder returns with I Sometimes Dream Of Glue, a concept album which centres on the residents of Glue Town. Glue Town is a tiny place just off the Westway, in the roadside grass, in fact. The residents are permanently aroused glue sniffers whose only available entertainment is an old Michael Bentine show. Apparently. Limited edition LP and CD on Cherry Red.

Burning Britain: A Story Of Independent UK Punk 1980 - 1983

Basically the story of how punk went shit when the likes of the Sex Pistols were replaced by the likes of the Toy Dolls.

These Cherry Red nostalgia comps are always great value though and a place to get all those forgotten about tracks in one place.

Revolutionary Spirit - The Sound Of Liverpool 1976-1988

An extensive 5-disc overview of Scouserock, if you will, from the punk and post-punk era through to the more polished pleasures of the late 80s. It kicks off with the art rock theatrics of Deaf School, and the more heard about than heard (retrospective) supergroup Big In Japan. The Bunnymen, Teardrop Explodes, FGTH, OMD, Dead Or Alive, China Crisis and The La’s are among the more obvious inclusions, but the real fun is in digging through the dozens of obscurities.

The Monochrome Set
Eligible Bachelors (Deluxe Edition)

The third Monochrome Set LP, 'Eligible Bachelors', is overlooked in terms of their more renowned previous work, but it is just as good as their first two albums. It includes many witty indie pop classics such as "Jet Set Junta” and "The Ruling Class". Released on coloured vinyl by Optic Nerve, included here is a poster and two bonus tracks.

The Fall
Live: Uurop VIII-XII Places in Sun & Winter, Son

It's one of those live records by the Fall, that iconic British post-punk band that John Peel has announced roughly five hundred times. This one takes the best of the best in their recent performances, selecting cuts from the last three years of shows for Mark E. Smith and co. We know they have a lot of live releases, but considering their monolithic output, it's only fair -- how else are we gonna get live versions of all ten thousand Fall songs?

Eyeless In Gaza
Original Albums Boxset

Eyeless In Gaza were a post-punk outfit from Warwickshire who were active in the 80s and helped keep it moody, moving with a similar trajectory to Talk Talk from a poppy sound to sombre New Wave shores. Fronted by Martyn Bates and his untrained, boozy vocal, the band went on to make music based around dark synths, field recordings and noise. 'Original Albums Boxset' captures the band as they went through their many different stylistic incarnations, featuring four records released in the early eighties, a bunch of rarities and a lot of educational sleeve notes about the band's time together. 

Microdisney
The Clock Comes Down The Stairs

The Clock Comes Down the Stairs was the second album by Cork based 80s pop gurus Microdisney and begins the move from the masterful indie pop they purveyed on Everything is Fantastic to the more sophisticated Steely Dan/Prefab Sprout soft pop they would work with on later albums. Like their other work it combines sweet melodies with dark lyrics from wonder-voiced frontman Cathal Coughlan.

Dodgy
What Are We Fighting For

Here come Dodgy in 2016 with a brand new album featuring the original 'classic' line up. The press notes suggest they've been listening to such Norman-friendly bands such as Atlas Sound, White Fence and Can and the band certainly seem to feel that this is their best work. So really who are we to argue?

Momus
Pubic Intellectual - An Anthology 1986-2016

How to describe Momus to the average human? Kind of bizarre eye patched prolific electronic pop person. Somewhere between Jacques Brel and the Pet Shop Boys if such a thing could be imagined. Anyway this is the first ever career spanning compilation celebrating 30 years of his wild and wonderful career. 

The Brilliant Corners
Heart On Your Sleeve - A Decade In Pop: 1983-1993

Indie-poppers The Brilliant Corners had a mean way with a single during their time. This compilation gathers up all 10 of them, along with their B-sides and a bunch of previously unreleased demos and live versions. Heart On Your Sleeve - A Decade In Pop: 1983-1993 is a double-disc collection on Cherry Red.

Hawkwind
The Machine Stops

Hawkwind have been labeled with every type of forward-thinking rock music, from prog and space-rock, to krautrock and psych. On The Machine Stops, the band expand even further, incorporating more electronic elements for a grand concept album retelling a sci-fi classic. It’s nice and heavy too.

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The Fall follow up their most recent album Sub Lingual Tablet with this EP. Wise Ol’ Man (is that supposed to be Mark E. Smith?) mixes all-new tracks with a smattering of remixes, instrumentals and edits, as well as a reversioning of old festive favourite ‘No Xmas For John Quays’. 7 tracks in all. Out on the Cherry Red label.

The Telescopes
Splashdown: The Complete Recordings 1990-1992

Early business from The Telescopes. Splashdown compiles all four of their Creation EP’s, a never-before-released theoretical fifth EP, their whole second album, some cover versions from compilations, and a previously unreleased Peel Session! Good lord! This comprehensive package can be yours for a very reasonable price, on Cherry Red.

Luke Haines
British Nuclear Bunkers

Luke Haines has a gruelling concept for for his latest LP. British Nuclear Bunkers is about just that: a post-nuclear-apocalypse world of underground bunkers. Conveyed, naturally enough, through the medium of analogue synths squeezed into a rock-like format. 10 tracks and a bonus 7” for purchasers of the vinyl. On Cherry Red.

The Fall
Hex Enduction Hour

Arguably the single greatest album in The Fall’s 41 year history, 1982’s Hex Enduction Hour documents Mark E. Smith at the peak of his powers, fronting the most powerful lineup of the band. Steve Hanley’s bass is generally to the fore, flanked by guitarists Craig Scanlon and Marc Riley, and crucially featuring the twin drums of Paul Hanley and Karl Burns. At this point MES had a knack for combining kitchen-sink realism with the uncanny and supernatural, refracted through a Burroughs-esque prism. Recorded in a draughty cinema in Hitchin and a cave in Reykjavík, the album is bombastic, abstract, abrasive, hilarious, belligerent and utterly exhilarating. The original crammed an hour of music onto a single LP, but this remastered Superior Viaduct reissue achieves much better sound quality than letting it sprawl over a double. If you’re looking for a way in to a potentially bewildering discography, start here!

Membranes
Dark Matter / Dark Energy

Here we have the first full-length release from Membranes since their reformation six years ago; and therefore also their first since 1989. A lot has changed in that time, but Membranes  have remained much the same, Dark Matter / Dark Energy carrying a lot of the same post-punk weight and forward drive as their earlier work. On Cherry Red.

The Fall
Sub-Lingual Tablet

The Fall have been in existence for 39 years and massively influential to a lot of bands that really matter (e.g. Pavement). Mark E. Smith is the only constant in an eternally revolving cast of musicians. Despite the ever-changing personnel, The Fall will always sound like The Fall due to Smith’s idiosyncratic vocal stylings and enigmatic lyrics. Sub-Lingual Tablet is their 31st album.

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.

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.

Second Layer
World Of Rubber

Available on CD on Cherry Red. Second Layer featured Adrian Borland and Graham Bailey of The Sound fame. a definite for fans of The Sound World of Rubber has the same post-punk drive but with many of the human elements being replaced with synths and drum machines creating a sound akin to Throbbing Gristle or Psychic TV.

The Monochrome Set
The Lost Weekend

English new wave band The Monochrome set themselves apart from the sombre tones of post punk played by many of their late seventies and early eighties contemporaries through their dry wits and clean pop sensibilities. ‘The Lost Weekend’ documents the bands tenure at Blanco Y Negro records.

Blancmange
Semi Detached

Blancmange’s fifth album release ‘Semi-Detached’ is the first record from the British, eighties synth-poppers without the involvement of long term collaborative partner Stephen Luscombe. With it’s roots firmly planted in the sterling company of synth pioneers and hitmakers such as Soft Cell and Depeche Mode, ‘Semi-Detached’ marks a progression into new territory with this stripped down, edgy record that is musically both ecstatic and devastated as well as being very personal lyrically without losing any of the characteristically dark humour of their earlier records.

Swervedriver
I Wasn't Born To Lose You

Formed in Oxford in 1989, shoegazers Swervedriver consisted of founder members Adam Franklin and Jim Hartridge who combined energetic, guitar driven melodies with heartfelt songwriting reminiscent of some of their contemporaries from the time such as Dinosaur Jr or Sonic Youth. ‘I Wasn’t Born To Lose You’ is their fifth studio album as well as their first new album in seventeen years.

McCarthy
Complete Albums, Singles and BBC Collection

Mccarthy helpfully remind us that indie rock existed before the '90s and all that vacuous, reassuring slacker pop about taking it easy. This collection of pretty much everything they did, titled to give us a scope for the situation -- 'Complete Albums, Singles and BBC Collection' -- shows off a time when this jangly alternative to mainstream rock had just begun and was counting itself all in for politics and social commentary. The lyrics, embittered with a hatred for the right, are as important as the melodies.

The Bevis Frond
Inner Marshland

Inner Marshland is the second album from The Bevis frond, aka Nick Saloman. Originally released in 1987, the album has been long out-of-print and features six bonus tracks from the original sessions. Nick Saloman has the ability to write beautiful, honest pop songs and wrap them in swirling psychedelia. Artists such as Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Mary Lou Lord are among the frond’s many fans and have covered Nick’s songs. Inner Marshland is available on double vinyl LP and CD.

Bridget St. John
Dandelion Albums and BBC Recordings Collection

Crucial for any major UK folk fans, this box set on Cherry Red brings together three albums and a chockload of other material from Bridget St. John. The extra stuff includes a full live BBC Session and performances with Kevin Ayers. Packaged in mini LP sleeves and with a booklet of memorabilia, £18.29 is frankly a massive bargain for this 4 CD set.

The House Of Love
Live At The Lexington 13.11.13

Remember when indie rock was made by people in the '80s? Probably not, right, because who was even alive then? Aside from everyone I work with? The House Of Love helped bridge that awkward period between the '80s and the '90s, when the genre saw a lot of stylistic changeover, but 'Live At The Lexington' sees them playing as recent as last year, celebrating the golden era of their career in style.

The Bevis Frond
Miasma

Is the rumour true that Bevis Frond could afford to keep his music career going by a payout he earned after he fell down a hole in the street? Not sure but glad he's around anyway. Once part of the English psych scene that revolved around the excellent magazine Bucketful of Brains, Frond is ripe for rediscovery by the types of kids in thrall to the likes of Ty Segall, Kurt Vile and the new slacker rock brigade. This is the first of a series re-issue of his albums and is in fact his debut, first unleashed in 1987. A cursory listen to 'The Newgate Wind' reveals that it is a very fuzzy thing indeed. Haphazard psych music somewhere between J. Mascis, The MC5 and Neil Young which degenerates into a coughing fit at its conclusion.

Laibach
Nova Akropola

Nothing like a little bit of horrifying industrial bloodshed to get you out of bed in the morning. On 'Nova Akropola', Laibach's unsettling sound recalls eerie, long forgotten film scores and ferocious power electronics driven with inflamed percussion, along with completely vulnerable vocals that range from opera to death metal growls. All the while it delivers potent political messages -- not that they're all that decipherable in this abstract, constantly morphing work. It sure sounds like a dystopia, though.
