MORE INFO We never knew when we put out an album of the music of the late William Onyeabor that William had never performed live - though we did know he had no interest in doing it now.
So we thought we should put together a band to play his music live. What an amazing time it's been. It's been so enjoayable that we thought we should document the group playing Williams music live in a studio. This document is not in anyway trying to compete with the amazing work that William Onyeabor did originally. This is a limited LP only edition which we hope you enjoy. Please welcome - The Atomic Bomb Band.
Dec 19, 2012. Rediscovering Interpol's 2002 debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, is a stark reminder of the band's disappointing trajectory over the past 10 years. Interpol started out as one of the more unique bands to come out of the Y2K post-punk revival. Unlike the affected Strokes or the glossed-up Killers, these four thin. On December 4, to commemorate Bright Lights' 10th anniversary, Matador will reissue a remastered version of the album along with a bonus disc of rarities from the band's early days, the days when the members' bespoke look still stretched the economic boundaries of their means.

We’ll never hear from her again’.” Recorded in 1972, but not released until 1985, this silver vinyl reissue brings it back into print for Record Store Day.

MORE INFO 'More than 20 years since our first album was released, we are frequently flattered by fans expressing how much our music meant to them. We are often asked if we have a new album in the works. So far, the answer has been no. But for a while now, we’ve been thinking of issuing an album of unreleased songs for our fans around the world. With the encouragement of a few close friends, the idea grew and soon we were rummaging through our old tape archives. So, what you have here is not an album of new songs, but a collection of old songs from the time of our previous albums. Songs that never went beyond the demo stage.
We hope and hope and hope that you will enjoy them in all their low-hi-fi glory.' --Nuclear Valdez 01 Give Up On You 02 Trapped in Time 03 Queen 04 Tear for a Smile 05 19 06 Come Inside 07 Rose Colored Glasses 08 Dead Siobhan.

With their single 'Venus' they became the first Dutch band ever to reach the first spot on the American Billboard Hot 100. The band had a series of subsequent hits but decided to call it a day in 1975.

Rick’s lines from the song are re-created in visual form in a 16 page book with a puffy cover – presented like a legit children’s book, thick pages and all.

MORE INFO Almost a year to the day from the release of Suuns' most-far reaching and creative record Hold/Still comes an album of remixes. Spanning an incredibly diverse range of artists and sounds, each one of these remixes takes the original track and twists and turns it into some very unique. The source material leant itself perfectly to a remix project - these are songs that are complex, layered, experimental. The remixes vary from the dancefloor fillers from the likes of Redshape or Marvin & Guy through to the ambience of Lee Gamble and Beatrice Dillon and the techno of VRIL, and shows Suuns as one of the most forward thinking and fertile bands around.

Bursting onto the Jamaican scene in the earliest 1970s, he pioneered the vocal approach called “toasting,” which in addition to branching out Jamaican music into a new era, was also heavily influential on an American genre in its infancy: rapping. U-Roy’s style and charisma are always on display, and – as with all of his classic records – the groove rules all.

MORE INFO To coincide with the 30th anniversary of U2’s iconic album The Joshua Tree, Island Records will release a 2017 mix of ‘Red Hill Mining Town’ on limited edition 12” picture disc, featuring the classic photography of Anton Corbijn in colour. The previously unreleased mix is by Steve Lillywhite, who produced the band’s critically acclaimed debut, ‘Boy’. ‘Red Hill Mining Town’ is famously “the single that never was”, originally discussed as the second single from The Joshua Tree but then put to one side at the last minute in favour of ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’.

Yes, we realize how absurd that probably sounds to most ears, but it’s really true: American country & western records have been tremendously popular and deeply beloved across the continent for almost a century.
The people of the West African nation of Nigeria have long been not only voracious consumers of country music, but fairly enthusiastic performers of it as well. Cowboy songs have remained a consistent part of most bands’ live repertoire, but relatively few artists have dedicated themselves to actually recording country music.
They did exist, though; mostly in the1970s and 80s, but they were rarely heard outside the country, and in the intervening years, most of their output has fallen through the cracks of posterity, forgotten even by ardent music fans at home. Like Nashville in Naija: Nigeria’s Romance with Country Music, Yesterday and Today collects some of the best country recordings as a loving tribute to Nigeria’s cowboy troubadours of yore.

MORE INFO Not sure where to start with The Cleaners from Venus? Look no further than this limited edition compilation of tracks culled from across the artist's catalog of 9-plus albums. The legendary lo-fi band began in the small town of Wivenhoe, southeast England at the turn of 1980s. Essentially the project of Martin Newell, a rock singer and part-time kitchen porter with a love of sunny 1960s pop music, punk rock and musical comedy, he never cared much for any kind of musical rule book and broke new ground with music that garnered a cult following.
Newell created a highly influential sound that continues to inspire to this day. The absolute opposite of a musical perfectionist, the founder Cleaner believed that great pop was to be had by doing things quickly, in slapdash fashion and by 'fumbling around in the dark in search of happy accidents.'

MORE INFO Growing up in the '80s, guitarist Ken Olden and vocalist Mike McTernan were heavily influenced by the burgeoning punk/new wave scene. In particular, The Cure became a mainstay for both, and they would use elements of the layered moodiness and the swirling guitars combined with hardcore to create an emotionally punishing soundscape in DAMANTION A.D. From their very early recordings, DAMNATION A.D. Would pay homage to the great influence of The Cure by covering 'Cold.'
' During that same session almost 25 years ago, the idea to cover Pornography in its entirety was formed. Over the next two and a half decades, the band secretly worked on this project, constantly revising it. Rumors started to circulate to the point where it became an urban myth. Finally, 25 years since the ideas was conceived, their dream of paying tribute to one of their most important influences will see the light of day.

Gurdjieff and Russian composer, Thomas de Hartmann. Gurdjieff traveled for twenty years in the Middle East and Central Asia to discover and develop the teaching which now bears his name.
Meditative and mindful, Gurdjieff’s music stems from Eastern melodies and music he heard in remote monasteries. From 1923 to 1929, Thomas de Hartmann worked closely with Gurdjieff at his Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man outside Paris, translating into European notation the music Gurdjieff composed from his travels. The original tapes containing these tracks were recorded in the 1950s under informal circumstances with rudimentary equipment, never intended to be heard by the public. As for the instrumentation, the performance is stripped down to nothing more than a single piano (played by de Hartmann) but lacks absolutely nothing; rather de Hartmann uses the negative space between notes to revel in resonance, in turn capturing remarkable depth and meaning. Following the appearance of a track on LITA’s I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America 1950-1990, this material, out of print on vinyl for over three decades, could be considered the seeds that would eventually grow to become the roots of what we now think of as new age music. Jazz pianist Keith Jarrett, who recorded the album G.
Gurdjieff: Sacred Hymns for the ECM label in 1980, is among the artists to interpret this music since, but the tracks presented in this five LP box-set are the only recordings available of de Hartmann himself playing the music he and Gurdjieff composed. Also included are seven additional recordings, never before available on vinyl, including a talk by de Hartmann about Gurdjieff’s view of the music. MORE INFO Hugely acclaimed on its release in early 2007, Field Music’s Tones of Town established them as one of the UK’s most sophisticated and forward thinking bands.
An album of ambitiously skewed, multi-layered pop which gradually revealed its intricacies over repeated listens, Tones of Town saw Field Music pushing and scratching at all of the boundaries implicit in their debut; the sound of a band moving in several directions at once, searching for ways to surprise themselves, taking risks and trying something new, setting the template for their continually expanding oeuvre.

MORE INFO THE FIRST RELEASE FROM FRANKIE AND THE WITCH FINGERS - PREVIOUSLY ONLY AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE IN EXTREMELY LIMITED QUANTITY! 'From the moment you start the titular title track on their debut album, Sidewalk, you can hear a deep appreciation for late 60’s and early 70’s psychedelia, refined and captured in the same emphatic and impulsive way, while dragging tricks and sounds from the last fifty years along for the ride. While Frankie And The Witch Fingers seem to incorporate a few more dissonant sounds and breaks, think 13th Floor Elevators or The Velvet Underground, to really spice up the sound and add a level of dissonance to the tightly crafted garage pop melodies, that just seem to melt out of your speakers. Reverberation and fuzz dosed guitars shimmer and undulate in the songs, while echoed vocals float above the instruments, blending in and out of fits of distortion and rave-ups.
The bass and drums are like calm pounding waves, powerful enough to chip away at a mountain with out raising an un-needed racket while doing so. Tracks slowly build moment and break into amazing walls of sound and distortion, before fading back into the shadows to reveal the skeletal melody of the song again to let you take it all back in one more time before you’re done. My favorite tracks are when they just hit the gas though, pounding riffs and thundering bass twisting together like a Porsche hitting a lamp post at a hundred and eighty miles an hour, taking your mind along for the ride!

'If one looks at the galaxy of stars that can be attributed as source material for today's musical DIY/lo-fi generation, Jowe Head shines as a true iconoclast. His 1973 addition to the avant-garage godfathers Swell Maps added an impressionistic edge to their psychedelic punk pastiche that drew of Max Ernst as ably as Can. Later on in The Television Personalities and his Househunters and Palookas projects, not to mention a sprawling solo discography, Jowe's persona injected color and livelihood into an often-too-cool-for-school post-punk scene around Britain while still delivering transportative sounds and open-to-the-listener interpretations. This compendium is in itself a galaxy of sounds that will never fail to deliver.'

MORE INFO Following the release of Systems Overload earlier in the year, INTEGRITY would enter into famed Mars studio on Hallows Eve 1995. What resulted would be the true culmination of what the band had been working toward, both in music and thematically. Humanity Is The Devil was an aural assault like no other at the time. From the guttural album opener, 'Vocal Test,' through the slow burn of 'Jagged Visions Of My True Destiny,' HITD would completely defy genre standards and scene norms.
After two decades, the resulting waves are still just as apparent as when it was released in 1996.

Humanity Is The Devil (Dwid Hellion Version). MORE INFO Originally found on Jansch’s final album of the same name, ‘The Black Swan’ is featured here on a 7” single, flanked by an early demo. The two songs are at parallels; where the demo shows the bare bones of the track (working title: 'Space Highway’), the finished article is something altogether more orchestral, with Helena Espvall’s (then of Espers) soaring cello providing a foil for Jansch’s supremely melodic refrain. Fans will surely be intrigued to see the process involved in the evolution of ‘Black Swan’ - the paradox in the two versions each beautiful in its own way. Artwork again comes from Earth collaborator Hannah Alice, with her own interpretation of The Black Swan’s plumage. Remastered by Brian Pyle.
Limited to 2000 worldwide. 'The Black Swan'/'The Black Swan' (Demo).

Wandering A4. Your Throat B2. Mountains Of Delirium B3. Magician’s Guilt. MORE INFO On September 21, 1956, the first Johnny Mathis session produced by Mitch Miller took place. It succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. The first single from that session, “Wonderful!
Wonderful!” b/w “When Sunny Gets Blue,” shot up the charts in early 1957, peaked at #14, and stayed on Billboard’s Pop Singles chart for 39 weeks - a record that was unbroken for over 20 years. Sixty years later, the importance of these two cuts to Mathis’ career cannot be overemphasized. Amidst the burgeoning rock ’n’ roll juggernaut of the 1950s, young listeners heard one of their own in a setting which allowed them to catch their breath from the frenzied drive of the rock ’n’ roll backbeat, and they liked it. And what’s more, so did their parents. This commemorative reissue of Mathis’ first hit single on 45 RPM 7” vinyl is part of an ongoing celebration of his six-decade tenure as Columbia Records’ longest-signed artist. MORE INFO For Record Store Day, a three LP set featuring all forty single sides the legendary New Orleans funk band released on Josie, Reprise & Warner Bros., their entire singles output save for some obscure overseas sides.
Most of the material has never been on vinyl since its original 45 release.. That means that you not only get every hit along with its hard-to-find B-side but also the rare single mixes, including the especially rare original mono single mixes of the 1968-1971 Josie sides, very few of which have been reissued. These songs represent the mother lode of New Orleans funk, classic tracks like “Sophisticated Cissy,” “Cissy Strut,” “Look-Ka Py Py,” “Chicken Strut,” “Hand Clapping Song,” “Hey Pocky A-Way,” and more. And, with liner notes by Bill Dahl featuring quotes from Nocentelli, Neville, and Porter, this 3 LP set (one LP each of red, yellow, green vinyl) offers probably the best retrospective to date of this enormously influential band.

MORE INFO Firebrand, songstress and wise soul, Malvina Reynolds lived a full life of activism and music. Best known as a performer on TV’s legendary ‘Sesame Street’ and as a songwriter for icons Harry Belafonte (Turn Around), Pete Seeger (Little Boxes) and The Seekers (Morningtown Ride) Malvina cut a slew of fine but obscure recordings from 1960 until her death in 1977. Reynolds wrote with a playful social conscience and a biting, satirical wit: slyly railing against conformity and urging care for the natural world.
Nestled within her underexposed discography are many timeless and mischievous songs that appeal to both young and old alike. Less known are three rare Malvina LPs originally recorded exclusively for children. This unique anthology has been prepared in collaboration with the Reynolds estate and reissues a wealth of these charming children’s songs, many for the very first time. *Reissued for the first time on LP direct from the master tapes! *Features guest appearances from members of The Byrds and other '60s/'70s west coast pop alumni! *Limited Edition (500 worldwide) gatefold LP - 200 (randomly inserted) Sky Blue, 200 (randomly inserted) Vanilla Ice Cream White, 100 standard black vinyl.

Turn On The Bright Lights is just one of those records for me. When it hit – ten years ago on Aug. 19 – I was at the age when hearing something you really liked mattered the most. I became sort of obsessed with it. The leadup of anticipation and ensuing payoff of seeing the band play at Kansas City’s Madrid Theater was so impactful to me, at the time, that I have no doubt I could accurately detail the interior of the Madrid even though I haven’t stepped foot inside of it since (Calla opened.
God, remember Calla?) I just now pulled the setlist (give or take one or two songs) from the crevices of my mind. Since Interpol was just picking up steam at the time when we saw them — it was pretty rare for an East Coast band gaining traction to make a Midwest stop this early along — you felt that, in the arrogant way of teenagerdom, that you were on to something that others weren’t on to you and that made you smarter than those people. You know how that goes? Turn On The Bright Lights showed me how that goes.
The album itself is, to this day, an awesomely wellworn brick of incisive guitar rock, an assured, confident, risk-taking debut that the band hasn’t lived up to since. As far as the now-fractured group is concerned, the interplay between guitarist Daniel Kessler and bassist Carlos D was at its pinnacle, building this infinitely replayable groove that threads Turn On The Bright Lights together. And not to completely throw Paul Bank’s brooding babble – more on that later, as it deserves its own section — under the bus, but that’s the most timeless aspect of Turn On The Bright Lights, just how locked in those ends are on songs like the chugging storm surge “PDA” and the morose “Stella Was A Diver She Was Always Down.” The “Obstacle” songs – “Obstacle 1” and “Obstacle 2,” ya dig – were different sides of the same book, and given that the songs are structured pretty similar, I’d like to think of them as tonesetters for the respective halves of TOTBL. Banks’s own bald lyricism – “My best friend’s a butcher / He has sixteen knives / He carries them all over the place, at least he tries / Oh look! It stopped snowing” -– was fun to wade in (even though now I can see anybody over the age of 25 hearing Banks’ lyrics and being all like, “Ugh, fucking young people and their fake problems). I remember summoning that melodramatic “Stel-A-AHHHH” many a time in the high school hallway. At the Madrid show, another audience member sharply corrected a friend’s announcement of what song the band was playing, barking “It’s “The New!,” which instantly became an inside joke amongst my friends.
My high school band rehearsed “Roland” for a battle of the bands, eventually choosing to play a medley that prominently involved the theme from Happy Gilmore instead. For a young person, it just felt there was a lot to latch on to, all backed by the noodling, hypnotic dark guitar tornado that Interpol created. Turn On The Bright Lights is one of those records for me. I remember the album catching a lot of flak for being too sadsack, too derivative, too trite; Turn On The Bright Lights was definitely the recipient of the snotty “I liked this band when they were called Joy Division” served up by the world’s caste of spoilsport older brothers.
But you know? I used this record to get into Joy Division. Objectively, Interpol hasn’t necessarily aged well, in general; the well-received Antics avoided the sophomore slump before interest fell off a cliff with the erratic Our Love To Admire, whose “The Heinrich Maneuver” now scores a cheesy AT&T commercial. Banks’ melodramatic bent, a pattern which you couldn’t really decipher whether he was being serious or off-handed or ironic or frumpy or whatever when Turn On The Bright Lights first arrived, seems to have spilled over and ink-stained his boring Julian Plenti project. Turn On The Bright Lights is a soundtrack.
I think you can look at it as silly now, but maybe that’s just part of the allure, that kind of hammy, maybe empty-fisted vagueness that makes some rock so memorable and personal to the listener. Interpol described the plight of Stella (whose fall down a manhole reminded her of her “scuba days,” obviously), offered me 200 couches where I could sleep tonight when just a loveseat would have served perfectly O.K., assured me that New York Cares and ascribed all sorts of other kinds of moody mannequins with their masterwork, Turn On The Bright Lights. Paul Banks bragged about his friend severing segments, probably just because “severing segments” has a nice ring to it. Secretly, I liked that.
