The Phantom Band
Checkmate Savage

2009 is currently being raided for forgotten gems that can be re-pressed to ensure the worlds vinyl is still put to good use. The latest is the debut of The Phantom Band which came out on Chemikal Underground. The same label have re-issued the record in all its glory and for the uninitiated this six piece band play an idiosyncratic form of music that takes in krautrock, blues and art rock. Time to get belatedly on board. 

O.G. Original Gangster

O.G. Original Gangster was the fourth album by rapper Ice-T, originally released in 1991. It is widely and highly critically acclaimed for his lyrics and use of beats. In his lyrics he expressed his feelings about social issues, violence and life in the ghetto - but what set him apart was the street language he used.

Herbie Hancock

Jazz-fusion classic Directstep by the legendary Herbie Hancock was originally only released in Japan in 1979 and has been out of print for the best part of 40 years. So, unless you were lucky / wealthy / old enough to bag yourself an expensive Japanese import back in the day, you’ll be wanting this reissue. Includes reworked versions of Butterfly and I Thought It Was You along with new track Shiftless Shuffle.

The Nightingales
No Love Lost

Luxury re-issue of Birmingham nutters 2012 album with five bonus tracks including covers of songs by the likes of TLC, Joanna Newsom, the Lovely Eggs and the Troggs. For the uninitiated the band play a kind of warped English garage with nods to Captain Beefheart and the Fall. They are unique and uncompromising and when everything comes out in the wash will surely be seen as one of the finest underground English bands of their era.

Sarah Records put out a few classic indie records in their time by artists such as The Field Mice and The Orchids. Unisex, the second album by Reading three-piece, Blueboy, was no exception. This is the first vinyl reissue since its original 1994 release. After a bunch of singles and three albums the band went their separate ways joining bands such as Arabesque, Lovejoy and Another Sunny Day.

The Fall

A new six-CD box set documenting a pivotal year for Mark E Smith and The Fall, 1982 gathers up the two studio albums they released that year - Hex Enduction Hour, universally acknowledged as one of their very finest, and Room To Live, regarded as a difficult curate’s egg - plus contemporary Peel sessions, their singles for the Kamera label, and live album In A Hole in addition to a show in Melbourne. Also contains replica poster and 4,000 word essay from biographer Daryl Easlea. The two studio albums will be released on limited edition coloured vinyl versions separately. 

Kate Bush
50 Words for Snow

50 Words for Snow is the tenth album for Kate Bush, coming five years after her last studio album, Aerial. The title comes from the belief that Eskimos have 50 words for snow. The album features a number of guest artists including Andy Fairweather-Low, Danny Thompson, Elton John and Stephen Fry, who recites 50 words for snow on the title track.

Isaac Hayes

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Post-punk only comes out at Halloween, so how about another Nick Cave reissue, since 'tis the season, and all that? Released just over a decade ago, 'Nocturama' was the twelfth Bad Seeds release, although Cave still hadn't gotten over having awkwardly cropped photos of his face on the front cover at this point. It cemented his place as one of the great narrative songwriters in music and it also saw the band wave a fond farewell to Seeds' founding member Blixa Bargeld.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Henry's Dream

Reissue of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ seventh album, thanks to Mute. Henry’s Dream is something of a fan favourite as Cave albums go, and includes ‘Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry’ and ‘Jack The Ripper’. Very much a proper reissue, overseen by Mick Harvey, approved by Cave, and pressed to good solid 180g vinyl with a download code to boot!

Zone of Swans/Lucid Actual + 1/2 Dativa

Daszu were another one of those groups who have been terminally overlooked despite having all the ingredients that have made other bands near household names. They were based out of Milwaukee in the years 1979 to 1983 and their post punk sound contains elements familiar to fans of This Heat, A Certain Ratio and Devo. This re-issue contains a large proportion of their recorded output and is sure to be a fascinating listen.

Rhythim Is Rhythim / Derrick May / Mayday
Innovator – Soundtrack For The Tenth Planet

Originally released in 1991, Network Records delivers a double-vinyl re-issue of Derrick May’s seminal Innovator collection, dubbed with the additional title Soundtrack For The Tenth Planet. This collection includes the acid house-pioneering ‘Strings of Life’ (released under the name Rhythim Is Rhythim) and a full 13-minute version of ‘Hand In Hand’. 

The Beatles
The Singles Collection

A mouth-watering prospect for any Beatlemaniac, The Singles Collection contains all 23 UK-issued singles by The Beatles on 7” vinyl from ‘Love Me Do’ to Nineties-released ‘Free As A Bird’, complete with original B-sides and artwork from a different international territory assigned to each single. The box set also houses a 40-page booklet with photos, memorabilia and in-depth essays from Fab Four historian Kevin Howlett.

Death in Vegas
The Contino Sessions

Rock/electronica duo Death in Vegas made perhaps their most high profile record with The Contino Sessions where they invited a host of guests (Iggy Pop, Jim Reid, Bobby Gillespie) to sing over their blend of dub, industrial and electronica and at the same time made their studio look like something out of a sunglasses convention.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Scream (Picture Disc)

Initially released in 1978, The Scream is the debut offering of post-punk outfit Siouxsie and The Banshees. The 10-track offering represents what was one of the more audacious and experimental waves in alt-rock history, which both smashed rules and peaked at number 12 in the charts. Features hit single 'Metal Postcard (Mittageisen)'

Death And Vanilla
Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing enormo-dromes have kindly re-issued their earlier hard-to-find work including this album that according to his review seemed to cause Phil immense personal hygiene problems on first listening.

The Fall
Bend Sinister / The 'Domesday' Pay-Off Triad-Plus!

We're still literally scratching the surface with the Fall re-issues, Beggars have been first off the mark and here re-issue 1986's semi forgotten Bend Sinister alongside a bunch of extra tracks culled from various singles. The CD has even more bonus stuff from peel sessions and even some unreleased takes. LP comes with replica program for the Riverside production of ‘Hey Luciani!’   

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you can get it on a wonderful Christmas present-ready 'shop window' edition vinyl or book back CD with all your favourite slightly hip people talking about the album in an accompanying book. Wake up, and look at this thing that I bring! 

Siouxsie and The Banshees

Here's where Siouxsie and the Banshees proved that they were more than just goth rock gloomsters. Lead single 'Peek-a-Boo' was an innovative slice of future pop laden with samples and electronic effects. The album contained further hits in 'The Killing Jar' and 'The Last Beat of My Heart' and showcased a vibrant and unpredictable album.

Elbow and the BBC Concert Orchestra
The Seldom Seen Kid (Live At Abbey Road)

Surely one of Elbow’s finest achievements, the Seldom Seen Kid album is now more than ten years old! To celebrate, here is Elbow plus the BBC Concert Orchestra, performing the album in full with lots of lush extra string bits at the prestigious Abbey Road studios. It's a beautiful performance of a wonderful album, recorded in perfect clarity from a band loved by the BBC even more than they love the Conservative party. 

Kaiser Chiefs
Yours Truly, Angry Mob

2007 saw the release of the second album by massively popular Leeds band Kaiser Chiefs. Yours Truly, Angry Mob only served to make them even more massive with opening track, Ruby, reaching number one in the hit parade. Like their debut album, it was produced by Stephen Street, who also lent his knob twiddling skills to records by The Smiths and Blur. Heavyweight vinyl reissue on B-Unique/Polydor.

Ruby Rushton
Trudi's Songbook: Volume One & Two

Ruby Rushton is, lets carefully note, a band, and not an solo female recording artist, let alone the woman craftily displayed on the cover. Just so we’re all on the same page. In fact Ruby Rushton are a four-piece jazz band, fond of the funkier end of things, and Trudi’s Songbook: Volume One & Two bundles up their two 2017 releases into one handy jazz package for 2019. On 22a.

The Frogs
It's Only Right and Natural

The Frogs were a brothers Jimmy and Dennis Flemion from Milwaukee. It’s Only Right And Natural was their second album, but when it was made, as a bunch of four track recordings, it was only meant for the ears of the brothers and close associates. Gerald Cosloy of Homestead Records (now of Matador) convinced the band to release it in 1991. Lyrically is plays with stereotypes, mainly of a homosexual nature, and it annoyed the heck of the Christian right in the US. It won the band a bunch of celebrity fans including Kurt Cobain, Billy Corgan and Beck, who sampled the song ‘I Don't Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)’ on ‘Where It’s At’ from Odelay. 

The Rifles
Freedom Run

The country may be in a mess but here is some good news...there's a new the Rifles re-issue! Guess where it was recorded.. go on... Paul Weller's studio! It's full of the sort of soulful pop/rock the band are known for. Billions of bands who started ten are so years ago have fallen by the wayside but you have to hand it to the Rifles... they are still here.

Normil Hawaiians
What's Going On?

High-grade reissue of the 1983 album of Normil Hawaiians, who were not Hawaiian but were based within the vivid Brixton squat scene of the time. Operating in the grim depths of Thatcherism and following the suicide of a close associate of the band, Normil Hawaiians recorded this remarkable suite of unusual and highly-collaborative group music, which sadly sank without a trace as a consequence of label failings. But this reissue gives What’s Going On? the love it deserves, with lots of liner notes and seven bonus tracks, as well as a fine remastering job.

Nigeria 70 – The Definitive Story of 1970s Funky Lagos

The 2001 compilation Nigeria 70 made an important impact on Western appreciation of the fantastic music coming out of Nigeria: Fela Kuti, Peter King, King Sunny Ade and many more wonders. This reissue contains all the original tracks (remastered) on 3 LPs and 2 CDs, plus another CD containing an audio documentary, which goes nicely with the sleeve notes and rare photos in the booklet. On Strut.

Shed Seven
Going For Gold - The Greatest Hits

Just what you’ve been waiting for - Going For Gold - Shed Seven’s greatest hits finally reissued on vinyl. The York band enjoyed the most successful years in the mid-90s, firmly establishing them among Britpop’s elite. Contains the monster hits Going For Gold, Chasing Rainbows and She Left Me On Friday.

MTV Unplugged In New York (25th Anniversary Edition)

Regularly heralded as one of the finest live albums of all time, Nirvana’s iconic MTV Unplugged In New York is being re-issued in expanded form to mark the 25th anniversary of its release. Kurt Cobain’s songwriting was revealed to be just as emotionally hefty, even without the dynamism of Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl’s normal volume - indeed, the thought of Grohl drumming with brushes is a strange one even now. The double-vinyl package features the original tracklisting, in addition to five bonus rehearsal performances that were previously only available on the DVD edition. 

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm

Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm. Makes sense huh. The pair's first collaborative record Stare was released as a limited-edish 10” back on Record Store Day 2012. It contains all the stuff you’d expect it to contain - dinky lil electronics, some grandiose drones, fluffy ambiences, a general air of contemporary classical niceness. This new Erased Tapes pressing of Stare adds two extra inches on to Stare’s original vinyl size.

The Blow-Up

Sold out - sorry!

John Cameron
Kes (Original Soundtrack Music)

One of the great British films of all time, Ken Loach's 'Kes' is an atmospheric classic for any of us who grew up in the North of England but the soundtrack by John Cameron is equally evocative. He put together a crack jazz line up to get into the heart of the film and so the soundtrack will appeal to jazz as well as film buffs. A beautiful daydream antidote to an all too real South Yorkshire nightmare. This is the real thing. This is beauty so fragile it hurts" says Jarvis Cocker in his liner notes.  

The All American Powerhouse

Just look at that vehicle. It suits perfectly this re-issued album of library jams from the mid '70s. The theme is super smooth soul and West Coast funk with lashings of sax and brass over funky bass and drums. Written and played by key library music composers of the era the album is a sunshine-y blast of laid back funk and soul. Re-issued from the original masters with carefully re-produced sleeves.  

Breath Of Danger (Themes)

Breath Of Danger (Themes) saw a who’s who of library music types working together such as Alan Hawkshaw, David Lindup, Brian Bennett, Barry Morgan, Alan Parker, Kenny Salmon and Ray Cooper. It was originally released in 1974 and is dripping with funk and breaks with a kinda cinematic horror vibe.

Peter Ludemann & Pit Troja
The Now Generation

Simon Francis of Be With Records is responsible for another timely re-release of a classic library record. Emerging in 1983 and the work of musicians Peter Ludemann and Pit Troja, The Now Generation was full of exciting cuts of beat-driven, dancefloor-oriented exotica, and now gets a 140g vinyl re-issue, mastered from the original analogue tapes.

Ghost Riders

In which terrifying proto electronic duo Suicide are captured live and in concert in 1981. It was originally released in 1986 on ROIR who have re-issued it for your nighttime terrors. They blast through such churns as Ghost Rider, Dream Baby Dream and tears, the live performance electrifying even more their all electronic sound. 

Erlon Chaves
Procura-se uma Virgem

Despite dying in 1974 at the age of just 41, Erlon Chaves is still well-known in his native land for his work in TV and film scoring. Chaves brought elements of funk and samba to the world of library music, and these unusual elements set him apart from many of his contemporaries in the field. His score for 1971 soft-porn flick Procura-se uma Virgem is a perfect setting for his groovy, slightly louche brand of soundtrack work. Now reissued via Mad About Records.

Mustafa Ozkent
Genclik Ile Elele

Music so funky that it is almost unseemly. Mustafa Ozkent and his band recorded Genclik Ile Elele in 1972: since then the record has become famed as one of the finest (and rarest) examples of Turkish psych-rock out there. This reissue LP on Jackpot brings this wild, hard-funk release back into the eager paws of fans at last.

Gruff Rhys

Alas Smith and Gruff Rhys Jones. The former duetted with Kim Wilde, the latter was (and is) a member of Welsh psychedelic pop men Super Furry Animals. Yet he also makes his own music too and between Super Furries shenanigans he did Candylion, a mellow acoustic album inspired by the music he grew up on. A lovely sound tends to always come out of the man's mouth and fingers and this is no different.

Bells Of Kyoto
Bells Of Kyoto

The Mitsuko & Svetlana label exhumes an incredible jazz-funk fusion record from the Eighties. Originally released 35 years ago, and coming out again on vinyl for the first time since then, the German/Australian/British ensemble Bells of Kyoto gave an example of technically skilled but unfussily executed cool on their self-titled effort.

Mad Professor
Psychedelic Dub

Psychedelic Dub by Mad Professor was originally released in 1990. It was the 10th album in his Dub Me Crazy series which ultimately stretched to a 12 album run. As the title suggests this is pretty far out in terms of dub. Macka B, Sister Audrey and Crucial Robbie add vocals to an album which centred its theme the imprisonment of Nelson Mandela with the song Cool Runnings Mandela.

The Ahmad Jamal Trio

The Fall
Medicine For The Masses - The Rough Trade Singles

Medicine For The Masses by The Fall contains the four 7” singles they released through Rough Trade in the band's early days. It includes classic tracks such as How I Wrote Elastic Man, Totally Wired and Kicker Conspiracy. Of course you want it. 4 x 7” single box set with 4 button badges, limited to 1000 copies on BMG.

Fela Kuti & Africa 70
Coffin For Head Of State

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti & Africa 70’s politically and emotionally charged Coffin For Head of State album. Originally released in 1980, it takes aim at the brutality of the Nigerian army at a 1977 incident in Kalakuta, one in which Fela’s activist mother sustained serious injuries, from which she ultimately died.

Sonic Youth
The Eternal

From the crunch and screech of opening number ‘Sacred Trickster’ you know that Sonic Youth are not messing around on ‘The Eternal’. Their fifteenth and final LP, this 2009 set sees the more considered sound of 2006’s ‘Rather Ripped’ exchanged for some of the meatiest riffage that Sonic Youth delivered at any point in their career (well, their later career at least). Grinding yet melodic, ‘The Eternal’ is a parting throwdown to all the young pretenders who had come out in the band’s wake.

Fela Kuti & Afrika 70
J.J.D (Johnny Just Drop!!) - Live!! At Kalakuta Republik

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti’s J.J.D (Johnny Just Drop) Live at Kalakuta Republik. A ferocious collection originally released in 1977, it saw the Afrobeat icon taking aim at Nigerians who had been to Europe and America and returned to the country feeling embarrassed about their roots.

Like A Virgin

Like A Virgin was the second album by Madonna, released in 1984, it was the album that propelled her to global superstardom. It’s packed with hits such as the title track, Material Girl and Angel. A lesser known album fact about this album that will go down well today is that it was produced by Nile Rogers. Rogers also plays guitar on the album with his Chic bandmate, the late, great Bernard Edwards playing bass.

U Roy
Version Galore

The heads know that U-Roy is where it's at when you need some quality Jamaican toasting. Version Galore is his 1970 debut album, the one where he first shared his sound with the world, and it features favourites such as his vital version of ‘Tide Is High’. This is a real history lesson, and a joy to hear. Reissued by Music On Vinyl with the co-operation of Trojan.

Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller recording five studio albums, more than 30 singles and appeared in 8 films in his lifetime. Best Day Ever was his seminal mixtape from 2011.

Box Set #4 contains seven discs of carefully compiled classics (chosen by Badu) from the Kuti catalogue, along with a booklet of in-depth commentaries and essays. Perfect.

The Slim Shady LP (Expanded Edition)

It’s bizarre to think that Eminem is a 24 year recording industry veteran. It just doesn't seem that long ago. Here we have the 20th anniversary reissue of his second LP and major label debut, The Slim Shady LP. It has been expanded to spread across three LPs or two CDs with some rarities, acapella stuff, freestyles and instrumental versions.

Mumford & Sons
Sigh No More (10 Year Anniversary 7-inch box)

It’s been ten years since Marcus Mumford and his plum-throated Sons wiped away our tears and asked us to 'Sigh No More'. It worked - the banjo-twanging Chappiness of tracks like ‘The Cave’ and ‘Little Lion Man’ has cured all our ills, healed all of our divisions and meant that there have been no reasons to sigh since (not in the United Kingdom, anyway). To celebrate a decade of sigh-less bliss 'Sigh No More' has been reissued as a boxset of 7” singles that each come in expensive papier. You also a bunch of images and a ribbon. Here’s to many more years in which we shan’t sigh one single time.

Lee Konitz
Alone Together

I guess there are classic modern jazz albums and there’s Alone Together by Alto Sax player Lee Konitz. His 1996 debut album was recently placed at number 38 in a pole of the best Blue Note albums of all time. It has won praise for its refreshing takes on jazz standards. Given the label’s back catalogue, that’s quite a feat. Konitz is accompanied by Brad Mehldau on piano and Charlie Haden on bass.

John Carpenter in association with Alan Howarth
They Live

"Record Store Collapses Under Weight of John Carpenter Re-issues" was an earlier the Onion-style headline we once used to try to make you crack a smile and lo and behold here is another re-press from the soundtrack lord. This time it's the soundtrack for They Live one of his urban Western type films with a fist fight and a sci-fi twist. One of the most interesting things about this re-issue is that it has artwork designed by Alan Hynes which reveals hidden messages when you put on the enclosed pair of sunglasses. Worth the £35.99 price tag alone for that.     

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Their Satanic Majesties Second Request

Forever immortalised in the film ‘Dig!’, the early days of The Brian Jonestown Massacre are now the stuff of rock legend. 1996’s ‘Their Satanic Majesties’ Second Request’, the fourth studio LP to emerged from the band’s prolific mid-90s run, has come to be one of the band’s defining records. These ultra-psychy jangles smash together rock’s leather-jacketed and hippie legacies.

Royal Trux
Cats and Dogs

Cats and Dogs was the fourth album by never knowingly not wasted duo Royal Trux. It blends the experimental isn't of their previous work with an increasing song driven the Rolling Stones influence.  In fact the 'Trux often come across as a kind of mutant 'Stones,  taking their classic rock 'n' roll churn to far out sonic places. 

Yoshio Ojima
Une Collection des Chaînons I and II: Music for Spiral

A first-ever CD release for both parts of Une Collection des Chaînons: Music For Spiral, an environmentally orientated music project from composer Yoshio Ojima. It was originally commissioned and released in 1988 for the spiral-shaped atrium at the Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, and is designed to be listened to at ambient, background noise level - in Ojima’s own words “at around the same volume as daily life sounds such as air conditioners and refrigerators”. 

Factory Communications 1978-92

The compilation Factory Communications 1978-92 finally makes its way onto wax a full decade after the CD release. This bumper set needs little introduction - Factory Records, Tony Wilson, arguably the UK’s most important post-punk label, blah blah blah. All the big hitters are included here (yer Joy Divisions, yer Happy Mondays, yer New Orders) as well as some more obtuse Factory acts. This wide spread makes for a good blend of anthems and rarities - for every ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ there’s something like John Dowie’s ‘It’s Hard To Be An Egg’.

Pink Floyd
The Later Years 1987 -2019

An incredible 18 set collection that is to include five CDs, six Blu-rays and five DVDs containing remixed albums, previously unreleased audio, concert films, never-before-seen footage and so much more. A beautiful addition if you own the early years boxset that will make your Pink Floyd collection even better.

The Magnetic Fields
Love At The Bottom Of The Sea

Love at The Bottom Of The Sea was a 2012 era return to the 'classic' the Magnetic Fields synth-pop sound after their various themed albums in differing styles such as the Jesus & Mary Chain aping Distortion. Singer and leader Stephin Merritt is on fine form here particularly on brilliant lead track Andrew in Drag. And how can you fail to love an album that closes with a song entitled All She Cares About Is Mariachi?

Archers of Loaf
All The Nations Airports

Indie rock mainstays Archers Of Loaf get in on the reissues act - Fire are putting out a remastered version their 1996 LP All The Nations Airports. This is a pleasingly mixed-bag from Eric Bachmann et al. Sure, there are plenty of impassioned rockers ala Les Savy Fav/Guided By Voices/Pixies, but the band also make room here for tape experiments and piano ballads.

Archers of Loaf
Icky Mettle

Icky Mettle was the 1993 debut from North Carolina avant rockers Archers of Loaf. The band shook off early Pavement comparisons to forge ahead with their own brand of indie-rock that was less obtuse, less knowing and more fun to dance around to. This re-issue comes with 14 bonus tracks (either download or on a CD depending on your choice of format) and has liner notes from critic extraordinaire Robert Christgau.  

Fela Kuti & Afrika 70
Yellow Fever

Fela Kuti released an alarming amount of records between 1975 and 1977. When I say alarming I mean 24 albums. Yellow Fever is an incredible record in that the title track is one of Kuti's masterpieces and lyrically the album is a valiant rail against skin whitening creams. Like a lot of his albums of this era this has only been available as part of that massive box set series.  

Mobb Deep
Hell On Earth

Sold out - sorry!

The Magnetic Fields

Holiday was originally released in 1994 after The Charm of the Highway Strip but was actually recorded before it. Therefore Stephin Merritt's compositions were less widescreen and more insular but by God does this set the template for his later work. What we are talking about is bedroom synth pop with yearning romantic lyrics and the grumpy sense of fun that has been the Magnetic Fields thing ever since. Re-issue LP on Merge. 

Stephin Merritt

Stephin Merritt is of course the grump behind the Magnetic Fields, the 6ths, the Gothic Archies etc etc. The man is a songwriting machine and Obscurities collects up all the detritus from his career, It includes material from all those aforementioned bands as well as some solo stuff. All are non-album bits and bats put into one place for your listening ease.   

The Magnetic Fields
The Wayward Bus / Distant Plastic Trees

Here is the very earliest material by Stephin Merritt’s ever-excellent ensemble The Magnetic Fields. Their first two albums 'The Wayward Bus' (1991) and 'Distant Plastic Trees' (1992) contain some real gems of dinky keyboard-pop, including the cult favourite ‘100,000 Fireflies’ (not the Owl City song. Imagine though...)

The Magnetic Fields
69 Love Songs

If you wanted to make an incredibly long album and you figured 100 songs would be too many what would be the next number you'd pick? Anyway, Stephen Merritt did a ridiculous thing and wrote 69 indie pop songs about love and actually managed to pull it off. These are songs that had to be eccentric and endearing, which they are.

The Magnetic Fields
The Charm of The Highway Strip

Always loved that title....and the music ain't all that bad too. The Charm of the Highway Strip was the third the Magnetic Fields album originally released in 1994. It was the first record on which Stephin Merritt took over all lead vocal duties and his distinctive baritone informs a bunch of songs that are clever and romantic odes to country music and life on that dusty old road. 

The Magnetic Fields
Get Lost

Get Lost was this Norman Record Description Writer (tm)'s first introduction to the wonderful swirling pop world of the Magnetic Fields. It still stands (to me anyway) as one of their finest efforts. Certainly it's one of their most covered records with the Divine Comedy (twice), Tracey Thorn and Advance Base all interpreting songs from the album. 

Karma Moffett
Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without

Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without by Karma Moffet was originally released in 1982. The album was at the forefront of the growing New Age movement in the early ‘80s. Moffet was a pioneer in the genre, but not for his use of new available technology, more for not using it and getting new sounds from field recordings and ancient instruments such as Tibetan bowls and bells.

Archers of Loaf
Vee Vee

Originally released in 1995, first re-issued in 2012, now re-issued again in 2019, Vee Vee was the second album by Chapel Hill based slacker-rockers Archers of Loaf. They were quite the thing in the '90s battling with the likes of Pavement for the kings of off-kilter rock mantle. This luxury re-issue includes 16 bonus tracks as a download with the vinyl or on a double CD. A band not to be underestimated. 

Archers of Loaf
White Trash Heroes

White Trash Heroes, the fourth and final LP from Archers Of Loaf, gets a new lease of life on Fire. This deluxe edish of the 1998 record pairs the original ten tunes with a bunch of demos, B-sides and rarities. By AoL standards White Trash Heroes is an unusual listen, full of songs that wend through indie, post-rock, post-hardcore and even a little electronica. Bloc Party, The Postal Service and Parquet Courts can all claim lineage to this album.

Irmin Schmidt
Villa Wunderbar

Irmin Schmidt was one of the founding members of brilliant German band Can. Villa Wunderbar is a four LP box set of his solo ventures. The first two LPs compile the best stuff from his solo albums, recorded over a period of over 30 years, whilst the other two LPs are the best of his TV and film soundtrack work compiled by none other than German filmmaker Wim Wenders.

Fela Kuti & Afrika 70
V.I.P. (Vagabonds In Power)

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory re-issues V.I.P. (Vagabonds In Power). Originally released in 1979 and recorded at the Berlin Jazz Festival the previous autumn, it’s a portrait of Fela Kuti in transition. Not only was it recorded right between the break-up of his Africa 70 group and the formation of Egypt 80, it was the last album that Fela made with long-time drummer Tony Allen. 

Fela Kuti
Army Arrangement

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti’s Army Arrangement album. Originally released in 1985, it examined the tribulations of Nigeria’s first statewide exercises in democracy in the aftermath of a decade of military rule. 

Fela Kuti & Egypt 80
Underground System

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti’s Underground System album (also known as U.S.). Recorded with his Egypt 80 band and released in 1992, it was sadly the final album of new material in the Afrobeat legend’s lifetime.
