The Jesus & Mary Chain
Stoned and Dethroned

'Stoned And Dethroned' is part of 1972 Records' plan to reissue all the Jesus & Mary Chain they can on vinyl. Originally released in 1994, the record is a stark outlier in the band's discography, exchanging their noisy, fragmented post-punk sound for what they intended to be a full-on acoustic rock record -- just listen to that twang ring th...view item »

Dots and Loops

Considered by many to be one of Stereolab's finest studio recordings, 1997's Dots and Loops is reissued on vinyl as a double LP. The follow-up to critically-lauded 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', this album sees the band take another step away from their earlier minimalist Velvet Underground / Kraut Rock-influenced durge vibe, and edge closer to Europ...view item »

Emperor Tomato Ketchup

'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' is often held up as the crowning achivement of post-rock/psychedelic outfit Stereloab, fronted by the bizarre, left-field songwriting of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane. On 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', the band's affection for pop music and for newer strands of experimental rock intersect, making for a record both accessible a...view item »

Television Personalities
The Painted Word

Eighties underground post-punk group Television Personalities were a key part of the scene, lead by Dan Treacy’s smart lyrics and songcraft. 1984’s The Painted Word is their fourth record and one of their finest, winning much love for its slightly darker and more psychedelic sound. It receiv...view item »


There is no more ridiculous band on the planet than Sparks. Just look at their performance on Wogan for proof. This record though goes back to the very beginning when they were a couple of LA ex models and enlisted Todd Rundgren to try to sort out a ...view item »

Mars Audiac Quintet

Krautrock mixed with wannabe futurist moog music, 'Mars Audiac Quintet' lives up to its name and ambitions. Stereolab followed up their swirly and softer, less noisy 'Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements' with this record, and their tender leaning towards pop music remains. The record is getting a reissue along with its bizarre sibli...view item »

Aphex Twin
Richard D James

In a career full of brilliant music, this could possibly be one Aphex Twin's high-water marks, widely popular at the time of release. It introduced his pulverising 'drill and bass' techniques, moving him away from his acid 'n' ambience beginnings. Contains several classics such as 'Cornish Acid', 'Girl/Boy Song' etc. ...view item »

Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements

Back in the early 1990s, when grunge and britpop dominated rock music, Stereolab were doing something very different indeed. Combining motorik drone-rock a la Neu and avant-garde radicalism with elements of slick space-age exotica and retro Euro-pop, this their sprawling 1993 opus reissued here on double vinyl, sounds just as fresh today....view item »

The Jesus & Mary Chain
Barbed Wire Kisses (B-Sides and More)

Timely vinyl reissue of a 1988 early singles, b-sides and rarities compilation by seminal indie rock provocateurs, The Jesus and Mary Chain. Showcasing the many sides of the band with trashy pop, sultry surf, moody acoustic numbers and searing walls of noise- a great introduction to the band and a must have for devotees. ...view item »

The Sound
From The Lions Mouth

Today i received this great album from Normanrecords shop.The Sound is one of the important band for me and i'm so happy that 1972 records issued this beautiful and emotional piece of fantastic music. This reissue is issued very nicely and sounds perfect. I'm so happy :) Thank you Normanrecords for fast action and good contact....view item »

Lydia Lunch / Rowland S. Howard
Shotgun Wedding

A welcome reissue this week for this 1991 collaboration between vocalist/poet/motivational speaker Lydia Lunch of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks/Lydia Lunch fame and the late great guitarist Rowland S. Howard of The Birthday Party infamy, made all the more ex...view item »


The new Stereolab LP is in and it's called Sound Dust. After extensive playing (about 6-7 times, cos I really wanted to like this) I can confirm that it's decidedly average. The single was a cracker, but they could do better I reckon. Opens nicely with the 1st track and stays pretty good but about half way ...view item »

Chocolate Synthesizer

The Boredoms are freaks. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I still think they're either a bunch of disgusting little gremlins, or those horribly deformed -- and frightening -- children in the Garbage Pail Kids movie. Just imagine whatever wretched B-movie creature you want, and then picture it snorting out mani...view item »

Pop Tatari

Appearing in America after an initial Japanese release, and with a revamped track listing and song titles to boot ("Bocabola" is called that here only because somebody somewhere was worried about what a certain soft drink company might think of the original title), Pop Tatari definitely holds the crown as being one of the strangest things to sur...view item »

The Sound
All Fall Down

Reissue of this critically-slammed nose diver from British punk band The Sound. 'All Fall Down' is a massive fuck you to Warner Bros' request for 'something more commercial', which ultimately led to the band being dropped and the label refusing to promote it. Considered by many fans today as being The Sound's most accomplished record, this disso...view item »

Echo & The Bunnymen
Ocean Rain

'Ocean Moon' was initially released in 1984 by Echo & The Bunnymen, who are now recognised as one of the most formative post-punk bands. The record carried on the band's interest in using ornamenting arrangements to complement their despondent sound, including a string section, a la what the Waterboys did in order to make their simple rock m...view item »

Lee Hazlewood
Love and Other Crimes

Love And Other Crimes was recorded after Lee Hazlewood had moved to Paris. He assembled a crack team of Wrecking Crew musicians including legendary guitarist James Burton and drummer Hal Blaine. The result was a perfect blend of country ballad, psychedelic pop and smoot...view item »

Lee Hazlewood
Friday's Child

Stare at that cover. Just stare at it a little while. Now you are ready to listen to Lee Hazlewood and his second solo record (after substantial hit-writing for other artists), Friday’s Child. Plenty of darkness spiced with wry humour, and a remarkable voice. Hasn’t been on vinyl since 1965, so roll up!...view item »

Lee Hazlewood
The N.S.V.I.P's (Not So Very Important People)

This is Lee Hazlewood’s 1964 second album, NSVIP or Not So Very Important People, an apt companion to his much loved debut, Trouble Is a Lonesome Town. With his spoken word intros set to a new cast of sometimes downright bizzare storytelling, the album shows Hazlewood with his signature sound intact. This is the first v...view item »

The Burning World

I’ve been dragged out of my review coma to murp on inanely about the reissue of the ‘The Burning World’ by Swans. Why you ask? Indeed.... Back in the early days Swans made a harsh powerful industrial racket which was brutal, punishing and oft upsetting. That changed when the seminal ‘Children of God’ was released as...view item »

The Gist
Embrace The Herd

Last week we rejoiced in a re-issue of former Young Marble Giants lady Alison Statton’s Weekend project. This time its the turn of guitarist and songwriter Stuart Moxham’s post YMG project The Gist to get the re-issue treatment. Its a crazily diverse sele...view item »

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works II

One of the most uncanny records out there, Selected Ambient Works II is more genuinely ambient than its predecessor. With sparse synths and some kind of creepy magic, Aphex Twin crafts six sides-worth (yes, this is a triple LP release) of atmospheres that are at once calming, menacing, beautiful, and horrifying. Classic...view item »

Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The MIlky Night

'Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night' is one of Stereolab's most collaborative releases ever, featuring members of a variety of other kindred spirit post-rock/experimental acts, from Tortoise to Jim O'Rourke.  It's being reissued by 1972 Records, putting Stereolab's most controversial record on display once again.
