Next week should rule hey! Atlast we'll have the Total Control "Typical System" album in on vinyl. Been listening to this in my car and it rules. Dark, paranoid synth post-punk for the current dark, paranoid climate. Also doomlords! New Electric Wizard shall be here on vinyl . It's called Time To Die and shall come with some king size rolly papers. Yep, i'm not joking....
Ugly Pop have done a fine job re-issuing the classic X debut album "Aspirations" onto vinyl again. It rules and is easily one of the greatest Australian albums ever. Plus, they've also put Spurts: The 1977 Demos onto vinyl for the first time. We also padded out the box with some great punk and power pop re-issues on LP and 7". Here's a run down. Bent Wind - Sussex  Released by loca...

Back from a few days in the country, refreshed and ready to share my favourite new(ish) records with you... Mordecai – Neil’s Generator This is my favourite rock ‘n’ roll record of this year and I don’t think anything will trump it. Mordecai are a band that remind me of just how special music can be when a few unassuming people get together with some instruments (here it’s bass, guitar, dr...

The lovely new Lower Plenty LP "Life / Thrills" is in now. Check out the video here. Really nice late night pyschedelic folk. Sure to be on our best sellers list end of the year I reckon. Geoffrey O'Connor was formerly in Crayon Fields. Here on Fan Fiction he goes like a sleeker Alex Cameron. Pretty great 80's inspired sleaze, seedy over indulgence with a bit of  nudge nudge self awarenes...
Black Bananas feature Jennifer Herrema from Royal Trux. I love this album. R&B inspired psych funk that's part 70's, part futuristic cocaine 80's. A lot of fun in other words. It's called Electric Brick Wall if you need confirmation of my description. Kind of like Pharrell doing Electric Warrior in faded denim jeans and cowboy boots. There's always a two artist description in there somewhere. ...
