The Fall

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. S...view item »

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 chan...view item »

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 ...view item »

Go-Kart Mozart
Mozart's Mini-Mart

Poor Lawrence. At the age of 56 he still thinks that he should be a pop star. His dream is to meet Kate Moss. He lives in a bewilderingly strange world of complete delusion which ensures that he is loved by the chattering Twitterati and middle-aged blogosphere because he's eccentric and he's a story.  Yet I feel that there's such a sadness ...view item »

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,...view item »

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

There are so many reasons to like the Fall but his album isn’t one of them. We’ll get on to its merits or otherwise in a minute but let’s firstly remember that the Fall are one of the few bands in the UK to point blank refuse to jump on the increasingly tiresome nostalgia bandwagon and have managed to get themselves ...view item »

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. Incredible to think punk staggered on until 1983 but here is how it happened showcased acres of rare tracks from the era. These Cherry Red nostalgia comps are always great value though and a p...view item »

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. ...view item »

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...view item »

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 ...view item »

As the world is now full of middle aged men trying to squeeze into ageing, creaking, undersized indie band t-shirts (thanks AJ for that observation), this is the absolute perfect three hour friday evening kick- back for former indie kids now middle managers. The original tape came out with the NME in 1986 and instead of rounding up the best bits...view item »

The Fall
Sub-Lingual Tablet

The Fall are increasingly beginning to resemble that eccentric elderly relative that you visit from time to time - you are amused by their oddities, glad they are still around but you wouldn’t want to spend too much time in their company. There hasn’t been a great Fall album in quite a few years now though I saw them play a s...view item »

The Orchids
Who Needs Tomorrow… A 30 Year Retrospective

I'm so sorry that I forgot about the Orchids. I used to like them a lot back in the day but never really gave them a second thought after they split. This all changed when I saw then 'in concert' last year in the glamorous surroundings of Preston. The gig was triumphant  - they may have looked like a convention of sprightly grandfathers had...view item »

Pere Ubu
20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo

Quack quack Pere Ubu are back. It seems that every other record I've heard this week references them in one way or other but it's nice to hear the original art rockers still on the go. Pere Ubu have got long past the time where you might worry they'd gone soft and instead their latest recordings carry on the buzzing angular rock template they st...view item »

Just For A Day

Slowdive have their debut reissued on wax by Music On Vinyl. When Creation released this in 1991 a sticker on the front read "like a mind altering substance, without the risk". Compare it to Souvlaki and Pygmalion and decide on your favourite. Lets this 180 gram...view item »


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 ...view item »

The Primitives
Lovely - 25th Anniversary Edition

Lovely is an excellent record, with a sound that finds the right balance between rough and polished and a style that fuses 60's bubblegum pop, the Jesus and Mary Chain, the Ramones and C86 jangle with catchy, memorable tunes. "Shadow" even manages a clever homage to the cinematic, psychedelic (and slightly goofy) sound of Bollywood. Tracy's vocals ...view item »

The Shining Breeze: The Slowdive Anthology

Taking the plunge with Slowdive. The Shining Breeze: The Slowdive Anthology is a big old cross section of the bands oeuvre.

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 base...view item »


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, r...view item »

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 ...view item »

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. ...view item »

Close To The Noise Floor - Formative UK Electronica 1975-1984

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

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. ...view item »

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The discrepancy between Mark E Smith's public demeanour (see recent Channel 4 interview) and the music he produces is rather wild.  Actually, the fact that he manages to make any music at all is quite an achievement. Having said that I’m personally not totally sold on his most recent records. I feel ...view item »

The Telescopes
Splashdown: The Complete Recordings 1990-1992

Early business from The Telescopes.

Luke Haines
British Nuclear Bunkers

Luke Haines has enlisted a new set of machines to help him realise his latest ludicrous rock opera. The dystopian grit of a nuclear winter in the UK is an irresistible source of inspiration, so what better than to channel that inspiration into the bleeps, squelches and screeches of analog synth gear? Prepare for ridiculous and cute littl...view item »

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 d...view item »

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.

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 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....view item »

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-D...view item »

I Wasn't Born To Lose You

Swervedriver were always one of those bands that never quite fit into the demographic of the multitudes of '90s musical genres: too rock to be indie, too indie to get the rock kids headbanging along. To me though, that constant fence sitting is what has made their music sound so timeless. It is true that you can't help but throw those typical sh...view item »

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 main...view item »

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.

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, ...view item »

The Bevis Frond

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 ...view item »

Dead Kennedys
Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables

On this their first album they succeeded more than they ever could have wished for. This was relevant, a wake up call indeed, and still relevant. The demons the Kennedys railed against in 1980 haven't changed much. Society is still messed up, the government is not to be trusted and American culture is sophisticated only in its ability to manipul...view item »

Inspiral Carpets

Inspiral Carpets are back! And I'm reviewing their new single! Big time m8!!!! So, lads reformed a while back (2003) and have recently reunited with original singer Stephen Holt for their first new album in two decades. 'Spitfire' is the first single and it's pretty much what you'd expect from the 'Madchester' stalwarts. The recordi...view item »

Phoneys & The Freaks
Phoneys & The Freaks EP

There’s a school of thought that suggests that Oasis were never the same after Bonehead left. I’d trace it further back, perhaps to Tony Carroll’s departure. The press release proudly states that this is the only release by an Oasis member which coincides with the 20th Ann...view item »

Does The Fish Have Chips - Early and Late Works 1986-1989

Whether you're hearing them for the first time or travelling backwards in time, hearing Stump is like trying to walk with a moon-boot on one foot and a flip-flop on the other. This compilation gives Stumpophiles the last squirts of their output- a wobblier version of 'Ice The Levant' and the two lost Edward Ba...view item »


Souvlaki was a high point of shoegaze, Pygmailion took the sound several stages further at the time, this leap forward was too much for most fans at the time to apreciate, but like all great albums show how far ahead of the game slowdive were at that time the songs have beautiful minimalism and have great use of sonics used, with the pauses with...view item »

Jasmine Minks
Cut Me Deep - The Anthology 1984-2014

These Cherry Red compilations are truly a treat for fans of 80’s indie pop who wish to re-discover some of the lesser sung guitar strummers of the era. On this compilation there are over 50 songs across two CD’s for less than twelve quid. Nuff sed. It seems almost implausible now that before Oasis...view item »

Vinny Peculiar
The Root Mull Effect

If you've never heard Vinny Peculiar before, 'The Root Mull Effect' is a great place to get started. The songs span ten years of recordings, and include some of his finest works. He's played in many bands, including with ex members of The Fall, Oasis and The Smiths and has performed poetry, as well as music, on many stages. Available on CD....view item »

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 spok...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »
