Blood Sausage
The Short and Painful Life of…

I'm trying to remember anything about Blood Sausage. I remember them being around at the same time as Cornershop and Huggy Bear (members of the latter appear here). They were a punk and poetry ensemble led by Dale Shaw who went around upsetting people and causing general mayhem. This is the first time their collected works have appeared on vinyl.

Dirty Three
Sad and Dangerous, Mysterious and Exciting

Well this is exciting. It's very, very early recordings by the Dirty Three that they recorded on a four track machine with only three tracks working. It was initially released as a tape to be sold at shows and eventually got a vinyl release in 1994.  Now back on green vinyl, Mick Turner has raided the archives for bits and bats to add to it.

Howard Marks
Do Not Go Gentle : Howard Marks reads Dylan Thomas

Ah now this is going to be a sad one now that Mr Marks has passed away. This is a recording of the former ganja smuggler turned writer reading some Dylan Thomas poetry in his deep Welsh baritone. Originally released on Tim Burgess's O Genesis imprint as a limited edition Record Store Day release and now more widely available.

J Dilla
The Diary

Listen up beat-fans: a whole full-length album of J Dilla material, previously utterly unreleased. And get this: Dilla is on the MC duties here, spitting bars over productions by the likes of Madlib and Karriem Riggins. The Diary is thus a very fresh look at another side of a major hip-hop talent. On Mass Appeal.

Masayoshi Fujita and Guy Andrews
Needle Six

Phil thinks Guy Andrews was the guy who sang that cover of 'Mad World' but I think he's hopelessly wrong. Guy Andrews in instead a London based producer and here he has collaborated on a live BBC 'Late Junction' session with Japanese vibraphone player Masayoshi Fujita. It has now been released on a very limited 12" to make your Record Store Day just that little bit more improvised.  

Miracle Legion
Portrait of a Damaged Family

Ah now this is more like it Record Store Day. 'Portrait of a Damaged Family' was Miracle Legion's fourth and to date final record but they'd got themselves in a right old muddle with their record company at the time so it was only given a small release. In fact as a Miracle Legion obsessive I only found out about it's existence years later. For the uninitiated, Miracle Legion were a popular mid '80s band that followed closely in the footsteps of REM's early dream like pastoral pop. After they split, singer Mark Mulcahy released a series of acclaimed solo albums of which Thom Yorke is a fan. The band is re-uniting for some shows this summer. Come to England, please.

Run The Jewels
VRTJ Viewer

Esteemed rap duo and cat advocate society Run The Jewels are having a good time releasing acclaimed self-titled records with different numbers at the end of them -- they're half way through completing no. 3 as we speak -- so here's a nifty looking piece of cardboard branded after them, for your viewing pleasure. Ah, RSD, never change.

Section 25

Sold out

Shirley Collins
English Songs Volume 2

Back in her early days English folk singer Shirley Collins released a series of 7"s for the Collector Records label. These rare artefacts are now being re-issued and this Volume 2 is (confusingly) the third of the EPs. Shirley this will be most sought after things this Record Store Day (ok..ok..look, please don't judge me, I'm trying my best).  

Dream Baby Dream

Sold out

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' centre piece 'Pyramids'/ 'Where the Poor Can Reach the Moon' and pairs them with exclusive versions of ‘Night Of Chill Blue’ and ‘Walk On The Beach’ which were both recorded Karma Sound Studios in Bang Sarai Thailand in 2013. What were they doing in Thailand you might ask? With music this good, I really don't care.    

The Orb
Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld

Sheesh! The Orb's legendary debut LP gets a 4LP re-issue to mark its 25th anniversary. An odyssey of ambient and dance the record has many stand outs such as 'Little Fluffy Clouds' making it one of the few places where psych and dance properly collide. Comes in the original artwork. I'm not sure if there are bonus tracks as it doesn't say.   


Sold out

Virginia Wing

Probably one of the better Record Store Day releases this year, ace London quartet Virginia Wing tease you a couple of new tracks from what will be their brand new record in due course. If it's anything like the last one it will appeal to fans of Broadcast, Stereolab and fans of all things kraut and pop.
