An Aggressive, Chain Smoking Alcoholic



Proto Idiot
For Dummies

Manchester’s Proto Idiot resurrect the proto-punk sound for 2016, cheerfully combining snarly lead vocals with 60’s pop-chorus vocal harmonies. For Dummies is garage rock probably recorded in an actual garage, and it jumps through 13 fun-time tracks in 35 minutes. Released by the Bad Paintings label....view item »


FIR
Summer Wasn’t There / Winter Doesn’t Care

If you like Beachwood Sparks, The Brian Wilson Band, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Rain Parade, you may very well like FIR, as members all of the above are represented here. Summer Wasn’t There / Winter Doesn’t Care is a ...view item »

Self Defense Family
The Power Does Not Work In the Presence Of Nonbelievers

Extremely limited vinyl 12” produced by Self Defense Family for Record Store Day 2016. The Power Does Not Work In the Presence Of Nonbelievers is bleak and dysfunctional blues rock, with some post-punk drones added for good measure. Overdriven guitars mix with motorik drums and melancholic melodies....view item »


Xiu Xiu
I luv Abortion (Deerhoof Remix) / Joeys Song (Kid 606 remix)

I saw the last Xiu Xiu album got a complete mauling all over the shop. No-one actually bought a copy from us and as we’re the biggest and best record shop in the world that doesn’t bode well so I think he may have actually spaffed ...view item »

Merzbow & Xiu Xiu
Merzxiu

Xiu Xiu, the art-rock project of Jamie Stuart, joins forces with… Merzbow! Yes, literal Merzbow! Unusual to see Masami Akita venturing outside of the noise world for a collaboration, but very welcome. Merzxiu is strictly limited: 200 copies in Eu...view item »

Fawn Spots
New Sense

Sometimes we all need to make some pretty pissed off music, of course - everybody knows that. The real question here is, does the name Fawn Spots refer to a place where fawns hang out, or is about different times people spotted fawns? Or maybe it’s about the spots on a fawn’s lower back. Honestly this band is a myste...view item »


Further
Where Were You Then?

Further were an early 90s indie rock band indebted less to the wordy, snarky bands around them and more to the slow, sludgy guitar jams of bands like Dinosaur Jr; just listening to "Filling Station", the guitar duelling instrumental that opens to 'Where Were You Then?', is proof of that. Further were super lo-fi and fit snugly into an indie rock...view item »

The Wedding Present
Valentina

The good thing about this is that Dave Gedge is still writing songs about ex-girlfriends. The opening line of "You Jane" let's us know that. "I hope you find what you're looking for/Do you even know what that is anymore". Musically, as they have been since the fabulous "Watusi" they sound like the classic Wedding Present frantic strum has been i...view item »

Various
An Unmarketed Product : Guided By Voices Songs By Other People

An Unmarked Product definitely makes for a solid listen, leaving me with a hankering to go dust off my GBV vinyl collection from 19 Something and 5 (and points beyond). While some group’s covers may play it a bit safe, trying not to veer too far from the original source material, it is still is a collection with plenty to offer die hard fa...view item »

Fawn Spots / Cum Stain
Wedding Dress

Ah York, Yorkshire’s walled City, the historic place I trail in from at the tail end of each week to bring you missives such as this. Its so great to see some great things going on in the city at the moment from the ace Please, Please You promoters, to The Inkwell record and book shop to Bad Paintings, this prolific little label going from...view item »

The Babies
My Name / The War

I'm a particularly bad painter (me Nan was the artist in our family) so I'm enamoured of any label that calls itself Bad Paintings. I think The Babies are the band Cassie R from ...view item »
