Swervedriver
Ejector Seat Reservation

Though Oxford's second best shoegaze band Swervedriver reached big audiences with their first couple of records, their third fell somewhat under the radar in 1995.

Nurse With Wound
Homotopy To Marie

Nurse With Wound main man Steven Stapleton regards Homotopy To Marie as the first real Nurse With Wound album, although it’s actually their 5th.

Thee Hypnotics
Righteously Recharged

A huge vinyl box set from 90's rockers Thee Hypnotics called Righteously Recharged . . . probably called this because it's a collection of their tracks 'recharged' so to speak.

Fuck Buttons
Street Horrrsing

Well the minute we heard 'Street Horrrsing' by Fuck Buttons, my spine started dissolving and I felt neurons sparking in my head.

The Amps
Pacer

The Amps were formed by the legendary Kim Deal when the Breeders had a little break. The only album the side-project produced was “Pacer”, which was released in 1995.

Japanese duo, Colored Music’s 1981 debut is for fans of weird and obscure music. Their sound is utterly their own, however, if you imagine David Bowie’s Berlin trilogy spliced with the work of Japanese electronic pioneer Haruomi Hosono, it may give you an insight into their world of ...view item »

The Chosen Brothers
Sing & Shout

Reissue of a Wackie’s classic here. Sing & Shout, the debut LP by The Chosen Brothers, originally saw daylight in 1985. Even back then this was a ten-tonne collection of roots reggae, and this new outing soups up the record with 12” versions of ‘All Things’ and ‘Dancing...view item »

The Chosen Brothers
March Down Babylon

You may know The Chosen Brothers’ 1980 tune ‘March Down Babylon’ as ‘Mash Down Babylon’ off the back of a 2000 re-rub by Rhythm & Sound. Apparently even Mr. Bullwackie himself can’t quite decide which is the real title. Either way, this rootsy tune is a ...view item »

Butthole Surfers
Locust Abortion Technician

Easily one of the most bizarre, nightmarish, acid-drenched albums ever to bubble up from the gutter, Locust Abortion Technician will make you redefine the meaning of "wierd." This is the Butthole Surfer's best and most avant-garde album, filled with tapeloops, slowed/sped-up/reversed vocals and sfx, sludgy distortion and chaotic song structure. ...view item »

Melvins
Bullhead

It's hard to explain how influential the Melvins are; mention their name and even a casual fan of alternative rock may make the link to Nirvana and their influence on Kurt Cobain. Going deeper, and with reference to this particular period of the Melvins' ever-evolving sound, 1991's Bullhead is a stone-cold stoner/doom/drone rock classic which ha...view item »

Jeff Buckley
Mystery White Boy

Live album from the legendary Jeff Buckley. There are all recordings made between 1995 and 1996 while Buckley was touring his seminal studio album, Grace. Mystery White Boy was compiled by Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother, and first released in 2000. ...view item »

Sigur Ros
Agaetis Byrjun

The album that catapulted Sigur Ros from the obscurity of 'Von' into international stardom, world tours, BBC tie ins and a string of hugely successful albums.

Big Black
Atomizer

Atomizer was the very first full-length album released by Steve Albini’s original group, Big Black.

The rei...view item »

New Order
Power, Corruption & Lies

New Order’s second full-length achieves a fine balance between electronic and guitar-based music. While the preceding Movement LP was the work of a band who couldn’t quite shake off the weight of their past as Joy Division, Power, Corruption and Lies and the contemporary Blue Monday 12” saw them define a singul...view item »

Throbbing Gristle
The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle (40th Anniversary Edition)

Not in fact their second anything, The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle, is the band’s now four decade old debut. Though their impact on electronic and industrial music is undeniable, listening to these tracks I’m relieved their needlessly “transgressive” lyrics and imagery have not been so influ...view item »

Le Tigre
Le Tigre

Le Tigre were a political pop trio led by chief Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin). Their eponymous debut was originally released in 1999 and is now reissued on vinyl.

Miles Davis
Kind of Blue

It may seem ironic that the biggest-selling album in jazz history is such a subtle and understated beast - perhaps less so when you consider it as a sublime masterpiece of subtlety and understatement. Improvisation is an enigmatic and elusive thing, especially at the envelope-pushing level captured here, with Miles and sidemen forging ahead and ...view item »

West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band
Part One

West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band formed with very clear goals in mind (just look at that utilitarian descriptive name), and they achieved them, even if they did not achieve fame. Lovely psychedelic music with Pacific breezes and vintage 60’s flare. 'Part One' was originally released back in 1967 on Reprise Records and ...view item »

Son House
Father Of Folk Blues

Reissue of the album that introduced Son House to the 1960s.

Laura Veirs
Carbon Glacier

Oh I loved this album when I was a much younger man than I am now. 2004 in fact. I'm sure it saw me through some bleak winter or other. This was Laura Veirs breakout record and was the point where her lush and swoon-some style of icy songs really took hold. You can literally smell the Pacific North West on this collection.

Ennio Morricone, he of the thousand film scores… (I exaggerate, but he has literally scored more than 500 films).

Eric B. & Rakim
Paid In Full

Eric B. and Rakim's Paid In Full is one of their two rap classics that, although it's a little dated sounding, most rap fans will love. Every song here is good or great, and Rakim is definitely just a great MC. He's not one of my favourites, but I'm pretty sure everyone will like him. He flows very well and his delivery is interesting and well d...view item »

Brian Eno
Before and After Science

Eno's first four solo albums are all among the most underrated releases of the 1970s. Experimental, catchy and genre-hopping releases similar to that of contemporary David Bowie over the same period. Before and After Science might even be the pick of the bunch, combining the best elements of Taking Tiger Mountai...view item »

Eric B. & Rakim
Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em

Originally dropped in 1990, the third LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets the reissue treatment. Though Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em might not have the commercial clout of something like Paid In Full, this album is the connoisseur's EB & R record. Tunes like ‘No Omega’ sees Rakim spitting some of h...view item »

Beastie Boys
Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

Upon first hearing this album, I thought it was a little top-heavy. I felt like the great, fleshed out songs were on the first half and the shorter, sketchier tracks were saved for the end. Although it is true that the shorter tracks are at the end, that by no means indicates that the songs are worse...in fact the best song "Here's A Little Some...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant

'Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant' is the fourth record by twee/indie pop band Belle & Sebastian. It's notable for featuring lead vocals from artists other than Stuart Murdoch, something that was only occasionally incorporated on predecessor 'The Boy WIth The Arab Strap'. It brings in more orchestral elements, too, relying on a...view item »

The Cure
The Head On The Door

This is the Cure album to start with. But maybe that's because this is the one I happened to start with. The styles of music on this album vary widely and the lyrics are haunting as always. This is definitely one of my favourite albums and seems to fit a variety of moods and settings. If you only know the Cure's recent stuff, definitely go out a...view item »

Interpol
Turn On The Bright Lights

The formidable debut from Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights, which turns 15 this year.

The guy's a frickin' genius mind you and his sense of melody coupled with his genuine talent at composing some of the most moving music heard this side of the century is really quite astounding.
