Shellac
Excellent Italian Greyhound

Excellent Italian Greyhound was Shellac's fourth record dating from 2007. If you believe the press release all the songs are about Italy or greyhounds....and just look at that dog sleeve. It came with the usual non fanfare  - no promos, no shows around the album, no photos but Shellac can get away with it because..well...they are Shellac and if you like them you'll buy their records unconditionally.

Big Black
Heartbeat

When Big Black were in their endgame they got quite into doing covers. One of the most successful was their take on Wire’s seminal ‘Heartbeat’. In the hands of Steve Albini and his crew, Colin Newman’s anti-punk original turns into a menacing noise-rock chug. The Heartbeat EP, which first came out in 1987, is fleshed out by the short and sweet original tunes ‘Things To Do Today’ and ‘I Can’t Believe’. Thrilling stuff.

Brainiac
Hissing Prigs In Static Couture

With their career tragically cut short due to the death of vocalist/guitarist Tim Taylor in 1997, Brainiac’s third record (and first for seminal indie imprint Touch & Go) Hissing Prigs In Static Couture ended up being their valedictorian effort. Highly acclaimed for its intelligent, noisy take on contemporary indie, this ‘blue swirl’ vinyl re-issue is the perfect memento for this sadly unexplored dead-end in American alternative rock.

Big Black
Atomizer

Atomizer was the very first full-length album released by Steve Albini’s original group, Big Black. The band arrived fully formed, with trademark violent lyrics and violent production, grinding and growling vigorously along. Contains their particularly classic track ‘Kerosene’. The reissue LP is only available through independent record stores like ours!

Shellac
Terraform

Shellac's second album 'Terraform' was released in 1998 and followed the classic debut 'At Action Park'. The LP saw the group up the repetition and noisier moments, becoming a fan-favourite immediately. The influential outfit feature the ever-prolific Steve Albini and they play an angular and discordant take on math rock, post-hardcore and noise rock.

Shellac
Dude Incredible

FACTS!This is Shellac’s fifth LP following Axtion Park, Terraform, 1000 Hurts and Excellent Italian Greyhound.  The recording took place sporadically over the past few years at Steve's ELECTRICAL AUDIO studios in Chicago.

PACKAGING Both the CD and LP version of Dude Incredible come packaged in a chipboard album jacket with two high gloss, full color monkeys on the front cover. The LP includes a CD of the full album. QC Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LP was mastered entirely in the analog domain, using the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) process. The LPs are being manufactured at RTI  in Camarillo, CA, using their HQ-180 system. The pressings are 180 gram audiophile quality.

Alison Chesley, Steve Albini, Tim Midyett
Music from the film Girl on the Third Floor

Look at that terrifying house. It depicts the upcoming horror film Girl on the Third Floor made by director Travis Stevens. To create a suitably creepy soundtrack he recruited Steve Albini to put together a collective and he in turn drafted in Tim Midyett (Mint Mile, Silkworm) and Alison Chesley (Helen Money). A truly fascinating sounding concept.

Shellac
The End of Radio

It's not too easy being a Shellac fan is it? Their studio records are few and far between and their tours seem to happen just when they feel like it. So here's something to get starved Shellac fans juicing at the mouth, it's a collection of the band's two Peel sessions including their 2004 live set in front of a small (lucky) audience. Full of alternative versions of tracks you now know and love, the band were known for testing out future material on these sessions. Essential.

Big Black
Headache (Remastered)

1987 EP from Big Black, as short and to the point as anything in this band’s tight brutal oeuvre. Headache has that wiry Steve Albini guitar as well as his blasted no-fi howling and the pummelling drum machine. Four tracks are punched through in twelve minutes, and that brevity just makes it more good. Remastered reissue on Touch And Go.

TV On The Radio
Return To Cookie Mountain

TV On The Radio were such a breath of fresh air when they emerged from their Brooklyn hideaway. The band melted dub, post-rock, electronica and soul with a singer who sounded unnervingly liken Peter Gabriel. Return to Cookie Mountain was their second full length album and the moment where their art rock started to cross over to more commercial territories. The fact that it contains a guest appearance from Dame David Bowie tells you the high regard the band were held in by rock royalty.

TV On The Radio
Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes

Remember the first time you heard ‘Staring At The Sun’? Feels good doesn't it. You know, you can live the experience of listening to Pitchfork’s 41st-best song of the 2000s all over again if you want. The way to do that is by copping ‘Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes’, the 2004 debut LP by TV On The Radio. On this record ‘Staring At The Sun’ is just one of many bluesy, fuzzy, ‘OK Computer’-y things served up by Tunde Adebimpe, Dave Sitek and the rest.

Big Black
Racer-X

This is the one where Albini was aiming for a big rock sound but made a mess of it and instead came up with something samey and monolithic  - no bad thing as it turns out. It was released in April 1985 just before their 'Atomizer' debut as they slowly got to the vicious sound we know and (perhaps) love.   
  • Vinyl LP (TG091LP)

Shellac
1000 Hurts

'1000 Hurts' was the third album by professional grump Steve Albini and his Shellac comrades. The album did nothing to dispel the notion that the band are very clever, hard rocking nerds. Contains the usual slash and burn guitars, math-rock arrangements and in jokes that will delight their cult following. Shellac never compromise, they don't need to and '1000 Hurts' is another album of them not compromising to good effect.

Silkworm
Lifestyle

Silkworm’s year 2000 seventh album makes a welcome return to circulation on vinyl with this Touch And Go reissue. Lifestyle is totally into both old-school classic rock and shambling indie-rock, meeting in the middle for an honest set of guitar-led American indie. Black vinyl or, while stocks last, pink vinyl, on Touch And Go.

Slint
Spiderland (Remastered)

2014 remaster of Slint's beautiful second and final album. It comes with various outtakes and demos, as well as Breadcrumb Trail, the documentary about the album’s creation directed by Lance Bangs. The band's use of dynamics gave them an uncanny ability to bottle emotions; the words "he decided to piss", have never sounded so tragic.

Shellac
At Action Park

Shellac At Action Park is Shellac's debut LP following on from the "The Rude Gesture (a pictorial history)", "Uranus" and "The Bird Is The Most Popular Finger" 7" singles. 'At Action Park' was recorded electrically, and features no overdubs, no guest appearances and no tiny cymbals that go "pish". The vinyl format is an audiophile pressing, manufactured to classical standards. Mastering is all analog, direct-to-metal (DMM), and the records are virgin, dye-blackened vinyl, weighing 177 grams (the nice thick ones that don't bend).The LP and CD packaging were printed by Fireproof Press.

Slint
Spiderland

Spiderland by Slint is post-rock ground zero. It was the band’s second and final album, but it’s THE ONE when it comes to defining a sub-genre. The band featured Brian McMahan who went on to play with Will Oldham and then form The For Carnation, and David Pajo who has done many good things since such as Ariel M, Papa M as well as being in Tortoise for a bit. He was also a member of Billy Corgan’s Zwan. If you buy this on CD, be prepared to be told off. It clearly states on the back that this is meant to be listened to on vinyl. However, both are available.

The Jesus Lizard
Down

When we are remembering the alternative American rock greats of the '80s and '90s let's not forget the Jesus Lizard. Down was the final of  four albums recorded by Steve Albini and released on Touch & Go. By now the band had their sound down pat  - intricate song structures, a hard edge but moments of stellar pop tempered with the psychotic vocals of David Yow.

TV On The Radio
Young Liars

We all remember where were were when we first heard TV On The Radio, right? Well this Norman Records Description Writer (tm) was actually working at Norman Records old Armley office when we were all blown away by this EP. The band mixed innovative pop with electronica and dub and appeared to have Peter Gabriel on vocals. I'll still maintain this was their best release and *that* acapella Pixies cover is just inspired.

Big Black
Songs About Fucking

You already know it, but Big Black are Steve Albini's old band of pisstakey punk-churners, offering transgressions at a super-fast rate as they squirm and snarl their way through the classic Songs About Fucking. This was the band's second and last record, offering industrial noise bluster like never before and even propping up a cover of Kraftwerk's "Model".
