    Live After Death

    BMG and INgrooves Music Group will follow the 2012/13 IRON MAIDEN vinyl picture disc reissues of the first eight Iron Maiden albums, which spanned the 1980s, with brand new pressings of the albums in heavyweight 180g black vinyl in the United States.


    The albums will be cut from the original UK analogue master tapes and packaged in identical artwork to the initial 1980's releases.


    The release of these high quality, black vinyl records offers optimum choice to fans who would like to own a piece of Maiden's authentic 1980's vinyl sound, or for those simply wanting to rediscover this much loved, iconic format. Coupled with the end of the Maiden England World Tour which began in North America in 2012 and finished last month at Knebworth Park's Sonisphere Festival in the UK, this now completes Maiden's 1980's touring and catalogue reissues cycle, so the band are free to focus on their dynamic future plans.

    Death After Life

    Death After Life, Thug Entrancer's debut for Software Recording Co. is
    a deliberately realized collection of dance experimentation and hybridized
    electronic music with narrow stylistic precedents. It's also a gripping, somber
    tide formed from the gravitational pull of an artist's amble through unknown
    turfs. 


    Ryan McRyhew's footing as a creative lynchpin in the Denver DIY
    electronic music scene shued to the other world and beat of the South side
    of Chicago in 2011. McRyhew's new home allowed him secluded time and
    space to create in-depth and unconditional music as Thug Entrancer. The
    move also provided McRyhew direct access to Chicago's dance music history
    and the groundbreaking works being crafted in bedrooms and blasted on
    speakers throughout his neighborhood.


     A summation of varied approaches to electronic music, Thug Entrancer's
    multiverse is not dissimilar to other Software artists (Slava and Huerco S.,
    for example). McRyhew draws inuence from pioneering electronic and
    experimental composers who placed an emphasis on extended development
    and technique, alongside early analog dance producers who went all-out and
    all-in with little more than a TR-808 in their arsenal.


     Death After Life is comprised of eight chapters drawn from the album title,
    each numbered I through VIII. These portions underscore a pitch-dark
    motif thread throughout the album's fty minutes. Death After Life I is
    whittled and icy - long echoed claps and panned sawtooth shapes swelter
    around the skittering percussive elements over the four-and-half-minutes of
    unsettled, environmental shifting.


    Death After Life III delivers rapid-re, straight up acid with a snare heavy rhythm registering in an upper BPM range before fraying into the
    sonic beyond.  Death After Life V frenetically lashes out with hi-hat
    triplets, lower mix perimeter synths and pounding claps / snare at a
    breakneck footwork pace.


    The album's nal cut is the most up-front Juke number. Altogether shorn of
    the more abstract spaces heard earlier, "Death After Life VIII" attacks with
    the feel of a live, improvised performance. In fact, the majority of the tracks
    on Death A!er Life were composed on the y with very few overdubs and
    zero reliance on sampled sources.


    While Death After Life reframes elements of Chicago Juke and house in
    long-form design, the end result one in which a subtler horizon is discovered,
    trumping more palatable musical codes and dissuading us from treating
    electronic music, or any genre-stamped style matter, with rote attention.

    Little Death Shaker

    Stripped of all noise influences and focusing on straight-up songs, Little Death Shaker is a record evocative of late nights and dusty parking lots, long drives and boozy hookups. This is the work of a dude who's spent his youth and young manhood on tour and it comes through in both the music and the lyrics. Where Castanets' lyrics gave us Ray Carver-ian fragments and it's-what-you-leave-out-that-counts minimalism, here we see Raposa back from the battleground with stories to tell.



    This is the most lyric-heavy Raposa's been and it's also the most playful and humorous, and you get the feeling some of these songs would be the ones that would go down best near 2am at some weird sports bar dive in southeast Alabama/Iowa/Mississippi. (We can just see some big biker dude/fallen NASCAR star/Gary Busey lookalike sitting back-to-bar, Bud in hand, having a good-natured laugh over the punchline from Some of My Friends or the WTF premise of the Dan Reeder penned You'll Never Surf Again.)



    The record begins with fighting spirit. Allegiance comes on with a punch of electric guitar and Raposa singing I woke up feeling/bold as shit. It's his rowdiest and most confident song to date, a real knockabout that'll take you by surprise if you're used to Castanets. Up next the title track verges on Queen (Flash Gordon soundtrack?) and Some of My Friends is a barnburner with the ghosts old Sun Studios players holding court.



    Highlights are many. The dark-as-Skoal interstate roller Whippoorwill, the slowly ramping Some Kind of Fool, which rolls easy and pretty with backup vocals from Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent before building to a shitkicking rock 'n' roll peak where we find Raposa delivering some of his best and most racy lyrics, singing the very un-indie-rock, I could spend this good money wherever I care to/taste all the honies that I choose /lay myself down beside anyone's flower/all alive in the morning with the dew. It's a song about libertine freedom and heartbreak ignored and taking the bull by the horns and being, well, kind of a bastard.



    More highlights: Castanets collaborator Talia Gordon taking main vocals on You're Not Standing Like You Used To (Kate Wolf); the after-afterhours minor chord jam Stateline, Little Death Shaker's most ruckus track of all, a late-night spent trapped in the stripclub/rig cab/country bar/tour van/your own damn head. At 10 minutes it's a tale of drugs and wayward love, a real red-lit kind of aloneness, backed by a legit live crawl, with high and ghostly organ and distorted vocals crackling like a bad CB connection.



    With Meridian, Raposa and Houck bring back the vibe of Some Kind of Fool and take it on a humid trip through the deepest South, gators in the water, snakes in the sand, a stormhead looming over the sun-dappled river. When Raposa sings oh honey here comes the storm you can just FEEL the weather breaking.



    One of this record's real charms is you can close your eyes and see these 13 tracks played live; you can see the drummer leaning over his kit with his brushes (and sunglasses on?), the backup singers standing around the mic, beers in hand, eyes closed, swaying side to side, the lights crisscrossing the stage. Meridian is no different. You can see this band. You can see these people playing together, and in a world of records that bands can't duplicate live, it's crazy-refreshing!



    The album's closer, Allegiance 2, brings backlongtime Castanets collaborator Bridgit Jacobsen (nÉe Decook) for a hushed and barely-there apology. Oh lord be kind to me/after all these devils I have kissed. As a prayer, a shrug, and an exhausted offering, it's a fitting way to end an album so concerned with sin and vice. It's also a fitting end-introduction to this new band. So meet Raymond Byron and the White Freighters and their record Little Death Shaker. Here's to the new!

    To The Death 84 (Awaiting Repress)

    Voivod originally formed in 1983, with a weird hybrid of thrash metal and punk, a sound that made them stand out as a unique band from the beginning. Still together after almost 30 years, having made more than a dozen albums and toured the world, the Canadian group reaches back to the beginning of their career for their first Alternative Tentacles release.


    Voivod began as four friends who met in high school and decided to get together to play some heavy music. Growing up in Northern Quebec in an aluminum factory area called Saguenay (which they dubbed Morgoth Land), they shared a liking of Venom, Motörhead, Tank, Discharge and GBH, as well as obscure prog and krautrock bands like Van Der Graaf Generator, Faust and Can. They were scared of the threat of a nuclear war and Reagan-era concepts such as the Strategic Defense Initiative, and had a dystopian view of the future.


    To the Death 84 is 70 minutes of loud, blistering metal/punk. Recorded live in the bands jam space in January of 1984 with an old tape recorder and a couple of microphones, it nonetheless sounds great and hits as hard today as it did back then. This demo tape was sent to all the fanzines the band knew of at the time, and has circulated among collectors for years. The lineup for these recordings was Snake (Denis BÉlanger) on lead vocals, Piggy (Denis DAmour) on guitar, Blacky (Jean-Yves ThÉriault) on bass and Away (Michel Langevin) on drums. The track listing includes songs from War and Pain, their debut album, and six others, including a Mercyful Fate cover and two Venom covers.

    Give Me Convenience Or Give Me Death

    Remastered And Available In A Deluxe Gatefold Sleeve


    Track for track and album after album, the Dead Kennedys were the most relentlessly political and controversial stateside punk rock band to gain much public notoriety. Originally released in 1987, Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death collects 17 of the band's singles, compilation tracks, and rarities spanning the eight years they played together.


    This is a wide and deep collection of favorites like California Über Alles and Holiday in Cambodia, but the real reason to pick up this disc is the more obscure and rare material. From 1979, Night of the Living Rednecks has hyperactive mouthpiece Jello Biafra relating a tale of being chased by irate rednecks while the rhythm sections jams. Their version of I Fought the Law rewrites it into a true-to-life murder ballad, while rippers like Life Sentence, Insight, Pull My Strings and Straight A's are off the map unless you were lucky enough to pick up the original singles or compilations that they're pulled from. And Kinky Sex Makes the World Go 'Round is Biafra at his sarcastic best, as he tells of one corporate head instructing another on the economic necessity of a new war. The DKs were a truly important and relevant band, and Give Me Convenience provides 17 livid reasons why. Boy, could we use them now. -- Carl Hanni

    Too Tough To Live

    Dan Sartain returns with the new album Too Tough To Live, 13-tracks delivered in under 19 minutes! That's an average strike rate of a new tune every 1 minute and 30 seconds. Recorded at Lucky Cat, San Francisco, Too Tough To Live finds Sartain running fresh out of patience with a whole itinerary of hassles: department stores, death, the unseeing eye, the all-seeing eye, heaven, hell, Vietnam, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and you.


    Too Tough To Live also boasts a guest appearance by singer/guitarist Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's on Now Now Now. The two met at a brain trust of sorts in San Francisco known as a Star Track convention. After some begging and name dropping, Wieldlin was convinced to join Sartain here, achieving one of the album's highlights in the process.


    The new set finds Sartain operating at the opposite end of his range to that of 2009's Dan Sartain Lives. With adequate production values and some musical chops, the down stroke ridden Too Tough To Live is a tribute to when punk was the real deal!

    Live At The Carousel Ballroom

    Import

    Big Brother & The Holding Company might best be known for being the first band Janis Joplin sung in, a live recording like this one shows their prowess as a fivepiece band.


    Their June 23, 1968 show at the Carousel Ballroom would prove to be legendary on a number of levels. The venue was owned by members of Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead and would later become the Fillmore West. Janis would leave the band only two months after the show to pursue her solo career, making this one of the last times the ensemble worked together. The show was recorded by Augustus Owsley Stanley III , a.k.a. 'Bear', soundman of The Grateful Dead and a masterful LSDcooker, who also supervised the remastering of the recordings shortly before his death in March 2011.


    This is to be the first in a series of releases from his archive titled 'Bear's Sonic Archive', and it promises to be one hell of a ride. Though some of these songs have appeared on a 1972 Janis Joplin collection before in a very raw form, this is the first time these recordings are being released on vinyl.


    Dedicated to Bear, this live performance is a more than welcome addition to the Big Brother catalogue!

    Hand-Numbered Gatefold By Stoughton Press


    Vibrant Four Panel Insert With Liner Notes By Ashley Kahn


    Special Collector Postcards With Photos By Frank Kofsky


    Mastered By Bernie Grundman


    Offering: Live At Temple University documents a legendary concert by John Coltrane at Temple University in his hometown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
    on November 11, 1966, six weeks after his fortieth birthday and nine months before his untimely death. Offering incorporates a look that is contiguous with the graphic identity of Impulse! Records, Coltrane's exclusive label from 1961
    until the end of his life. This is the first officially sanctioned release of an undiscovered, complete Coltrane performance since 2005. It captures Coltrane in
    exemplary form, navigating the language he had developed during the last phase of his musical path with passion and pellucid logic. Operating at
    equivalent levels of invention and energy are three members of his working quintet of one year's standing his wife, Alice Coltrane, on piano; Pharoah
    Sanders on reeds and flute; and Rashied Ali on drums.


    Offering is emblematic of the efflorescent energies and radical ideas that Coltrane himself had much to do with bringing forth during the seven years after
    1960, when he left the employ of Miles Davis to pursue his vision as a leader. There are versions of Coltrane's 1960 hits "Naima" and "My Favorite
    Things," a transformational reworking of the 1964 ballad "Crescent," a spirit-raising rendering of "Leo," which he had recorded on several previous
    occasions during 1966, and the hymnal "Offering," which he would record on a February 15, 1967 studio session that Impulse! would release during the
    '90s as Spiritual Offering.


    On Offering, Resonance Records achieves the highest possible audio quality, using direct transfers of original master reels from a location recording by
    Temple's WRTI-FM, remastered at 96kHz/24 bit, that were tracked down by Coltrane scholar Yasuhiro Fujioka.
    The immense life-force that animates the proceedings on this November 1966 evening in Philadelphia belies the declining state of Coltrane's health. It is
    still difficult to grasp and to accept that he was firmly in the grip of the liver cancer that would still his voice on July 17, 1967. As co-producer Ashley Kahn
    states in his liner notes, "Coltrane was pointing the way forward for generations of players to come, pushing the music to exhilarating, spiritual heights that
    caught most by surprise. In 1966, that wasn't what jazz performances were about not yet."

    King Curtis: Live At Fillmore West

    Import

    Live At Fillmore West is the ultimate King Curtis live album, a brilliant confirmation of the saxophonist's place in popular music. This is the stuff of Soul legends that belongs in any record collection.


    The album showcases three concerts he played with his band The Kingpins at the Fillmore West venue in San Francisco in March 1971. Those nights, the group supported Soul singer Aretha Franklin, as were they her backing band. Famed for their outstanding rhythmic interplay, the group of seasoned session men featured a.o. Cornell Dupree on guitar, Billy Preston on electric organ and Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie on drums, supported by the inimitable Memphis Horns.


    Curtis rips through some of the biggest hits of the day including Stevie Wonder's Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours) and Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love, transforming them into showcases for the group's soulful playing. Beautiful renditions of A Whiter Shade Of Pale and I Stand Accused are highlights, and full-throttle rockers like Changes and Memphis Soul Stew comprise the heart of the album.


    Tragically only a week after its release, Curtis was stabbed to death outside his brownstone apartment in New York following an argument with two junkies. The day after he died the album peaked at No. 54 on the Billboard 200 album chart, his greatest success as a solo artist.

    Live At The Isle Of Wight 1970

    Over 40 summers ago on August 31, 1970, 35-year-old Leonard Cohen was awakened at 2 a.m. from a nap in his trailer and brought onstage to perform with his band at the 3rd annual Isle Of Wight music festival.


    The audience of 600,000 was in a fiery and frenzied mood, after turning the festival into a political arena, trampling the fences, setting fire to structures and equipment and stoked by the most incendiary performance of Jimi Hendrix's career, less than three weeks before his death.


    As Cohen followed Hendrix's set, onlookers (and fellow festival headliners) Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Judy Collins and others stood sidestage in awe as the Canadian folksinger-songwriter-poet-novelist quietly tamed the crowd. Take a listen and be amazed by this live recording.

    too-cool-to-rock indie crowds into a mob of sweaty, stage-diving

    cachet, took notice. Since the release of 2011's GB City, "Get Found"
    has been featured in FOX promos for the NASCAR season. Rockstar
    Games' megaseller Grand Theft Auto V helped to promote last
    year's self-titled album. Gamers terrorized the freeways of Los
    Santos, living out their cops-and-robbers fantasies, as "Crawling
    After You" blasted through their car stereo speakers. Bass Drum of
    Death are teetering on the brink of reaching a mainstream audience,
    and Rip This is their attempt to record an unapologetic rock album
    for people outside their normal fan base.


    In the past, BDoD brainchild John Barrett wrote and recorded all the
    material and toured with a revolving lineup of hired guns on drums
    and guitar. This time around, drummer Len Clark joins Barrett as a
    full-time member and collaborator. The duo began discussing plans
    for a new record when touring with Unknown Mortal Orchestra in
    2013. Barrett and Clark then convinced UMO bassist Jacob Portrait
    to take on the role of producer when the band booked a session in
    March at Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma County, California. With a
    few rough demos, Barrett, Clark, and Portrait hunkered down for two
    weeks and cranked out the band's first proper studio album. Rip This
    retains BDoD's trademark sorry-for-partyin' swagger while
    scrapping the crackling hiss and lo-fi fuzz. The result is an record
    that still relies on an obliterating attack of heavy guitars, danceable
    hooks, and kinetic drumming, but will appeal as much to KISS fans
    as the music freaks and geeks who worship Nuggets. Both a
    challenge to music critics and a rock call-to-arms, the title says it all.
    You're not going to hear many records this year that rip like this, so
    shotgun a beer, tune in, and turn up.

    Hendrix In The West

    Import

    Very often, at the beginning of a show, Jimi Hendrix would ask his audience to forget about what happened yesterday or today and start their own world right here.
    For this special new edition of the 1971 live-album Music On Vinyl asks you to do the same.

    In The West consists of live recordings from the two incarnations of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, including his legendary Isle Of Wight Festival performance in 1970, where he created a live medley of 'God Save The Queen' and 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' with a stunned Paul McCartney in the audience.

    To Jimi, concerts were snapshots of where the band was at that moment in time, and Electric Ladyland director of engineering Eddie Kramer (and producer of most of Jimi's posthumous live albums) must have realized that this was when The Experience was at its peak.

    In The West was the first live album to be released after Jimi's untimely death.

    Forty years later, Music On Vinyl is re-releasing it with a number of beautiful extra's: three bonus tracks that have never been released before, along with a booklet of unpublished photographs by Jim Marshall, who was also responsible for the iconic cover artwork.

    Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label

    In 1969, after three years as Soul Sister #1 to James Brown's touring entourage, Marva Whitney came home to Kansas City, putting Ellis Taylor's Forte label back at full fighting strength. She'd calmed aching crowds the day after MLK's death, and she'd lived the life, despite its rigors-to pour out her pain and exuberance on Forte sides including "I've Lived The Life" and "Daddy Don't Know About Sugar Bear," which made national rounds in 1972.


    By then, Forte had already done more than deliver Marvelous Marva to market. Taylor worked overtime at KPRS to bring the world The Rayons, who'd stroll their girl group harmonies past Chicago's RCA studios on "Baby Be Good." In '68, The Four Darlings sauntered in with smoky-voiced soul operatics on the demanding "Give Me Love." Progressing in the middle '70s, Everyday People got "Super Black" on Forte's pine-green label. Still powering forward some 13 years on, Forte redawned with the 1980s, essaying disco funk with Sharon Revoal's "Reaching for Our Star."


    Numero 047 Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label charts Kansas City yeoman's work, the Carpets and the Derbys, dapper clothiers mysteriously murdered, and marriages made and broken. In 28 LP tracks, plus a trove of promo headshots and every-hued label scans
    detailing all iterations of Forte's logo in print, this 16th Eccentric Soul sojourn hands over vivid floor shakers and lost dance craze records alike-though what moves "The Hen" required remains anyone's guess.

    Like An Ever Flowing Stream

    Founded 1988 in Stockholm/Sweden, Dismember were among those responsible for Death Metal's big break through. The debut album, "Like An Ever Flowing Stream" from 1991, clearly showed that Dismember are an uncompromising band which resulted in their rise to cult status within a short period of time after the album took the scene by storm. Extensive touring with bands like Death, Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse showed that Dismember are a live force to be reckoned with and the number of fans grew steadily. Spurred on by success, it was easy to commence the songwriting for the next album. However, the band then released the 5-track EP, "Pieces", and went out on tour again instead with Napalm Death and Obituary. They played for thousands of fans throughout Europe thus reinforcing their status as one of the best live bands on earth.

    Now We Can See (Awaiting Repress)

    Though not a concept record and not a sequel, Now We Can See picks up right where The Thermals left off, at the end of their last LP, 2006's The Body, The Blood, The Machine, where they were either obliterated by nuclear war, or walked the earth as the last living souls, until they dropped dead of quite unnatural causes. Either way, the story continues. The Thermals imagine death by drowning, in attempts to de-evolve (When I Died, At The Bottom of the Sea), death by psychosis (We Were Sick, I Called Out Your Name), and death by French exit (You Dissolve). But as much death as there is on this record, it won't get you down! These songs are really about life. After all, The Thermals are only fictionally deceased.

    Pressed On Clear Blue Vinyl


    Moody Blue is the twenty-fourth and final studio album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley, originally released by RCA Records the month before his death in August 1977. The album was a mixture of live and studio work and included the four tracks from Presley's final studio recording sessions in October 1976 and two tracks left over from the previous Graceland session in February 1976. Moody Blue was a previously published hit song recorded at the earlier Graceland session and held over for this album. Also recorded at the February session was She Thinks I Still Care. Way Down became a hit after Presley's death less than one month after this album's publication. The album was certified Gold and Platinum on September 12, 1977, and 2x Platinum on March 27, 1992, by the RIAA.

    In the Beginning is the second live album by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. While the album was released about two years after Vaughan's death in 1990, the actual performance took place on April 1, 1980 at Steamboat 1874 in Austin, Texas.


    This was all before his silk kimonos and black sombreros became trademarks, before his incendiary Montreux Jazz Festival appearance & before his recording contract. This is a record from the then 25-year-old Vaughan, still more than three years away from the release of his first studio album.

    Joy Division: Box Set

    Released in a Limited Edition of only 3,000 copies worldwide, this 180-Gram virgin vinyl, four-disc JOY DIVISION BOX SET contains new pressings of the band's two seminal studio albums - UNKNOWN PLEASURES ('79) and CLOSER ('80) - and the 1981 two-disc rarities compilation STILL.


    JOY DIVISION: BOX SET allows you to experience these pioneering albums the way they were heard originally - on sonically rich vinyl LPs. The three titles - a total of four LPS - come housed in an elegant cloth-covered box designed by U.K. artist Peter Saville, who created the distinctive artwork and packaging on the original issues of these classic releases. Once the 3,000 copies sell out, the box will not be reproduced.


    Joy Division's 1979 debut UNKNOWN PLEASURES is a landmark album that established the band as principal architects and ultimate icons of the post-punk movement and the U.K. Manchester scene of the late '70s. UNKNOWN PLEASURES' ten classic songs resonate with the atmospheric textures and deep sonic spaces of Martin Hannett's production. Highlights include Insight, Disorder, New Dawn Fades and She's Lost Control. The latter song is the inspiration for the title of the 2007 film Control, the acclaimed Anton Corbijn-directed feature chronicling the life and times of Joy Division's lead singer and principal songwriter, the late Ian Curtis.


    Joy Division's 1980 follow-up CLOSER, another seminal post-punk masterpiece, ranks #157 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Musically and lyrically driven by the prevailing despair of Ian Curtis - who killed himself only months after the LP was released - CLOSER was also produced by Martin Hannett, who weaves sprawling emotional chaos and shifting atmospheres and textures together into an enormously powerful ten-song tour de force. Stand-outs include Heart And Soul, Isolation, Eternal, Decades and the wrenching Twenty Four Hours.


    The compilation STILL came out in late 1981, over a year after Curtis' death. Comprised of twenty studio outtakes, b-sides, live cuts and other rarities, all the tracks were previously unissued at the time of STILL's original release except for Glass and Dead Souls, both compelling studio recordings from 1978 and 1979, respectively. STILL also presents material from Joy Division's last-ever concert, recorded at Birmingham University in May 1980 including the only time they performed Ceremony live (the song would later become a New Order single). Another track captured at Birmingham is Shadowplay, a selection covered in 2007 by The Killers for the soundtrack for the film Control. Other highlights include a live cover of The Velvet Underground's Sister Ray and a 1979 studio recording of Something Must Break.


    Joy Division formed in Manchester, England in 1977, and had an immense and profound impact on contemporary music in a very brief time together. They recorded only two full-length studio albums, UNKNOWN PLEASURES and CLOSER, prior to lead singer Ian Curtis' 1980 suicide, just before the single Love Will Tear Us Apart became their breakthrough hit. The remaining members - guitarist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris - disbanded Joy Division after Curtis' death, and re-formed as New Order.

    Movement

    Recorded live in concert on July 9, 2007, Gossip - Live In Liverpool brilliantly captures and brings into focus the stunning ferocity, energy and intensity at the heart of the band's groundbreaking meld of sound and politics. This incendiary concert showcase breaks out definitive performances of Gossip's signature tunes including the band's UK #1 Indie chart-topping smash, Standing In The Way Of Control; the UK Top 40 hit, Listen Up; and the #3 UK Indie track, Jealous Girls in addition to delightfully provocative covers of Wham!'s Careless Whisper and Aaliyah's Are You That Somebody?


    Gossip - Live In Liverpool includes a DVD-V of the concert, lensed by documentary filmmaker and music video director Lance Bangs (Sonic Youth, Green Day, R.E.M., Death Cab For Cutie, Kanye West, Pavement, Mike Watt and more). Also includes a limited edition 18 x 24 poster.


    Gossip released its first full-length collection of songs, That's Not What I Heard, in January of 2001 and its successor, Arkansas Heat, in 2002 after touring with the White Stripes and Sleater-Kinney. Gossip reached a threshold of transcendence with its last studio collection, 2006's Standing In The Way Of Control, which shot to #1 on the UK indie albums chart. The album's title track became a UK hit in its own right after becoming the unofficial theme music for the popular British television teen drama, Skins. Standing In The Way Of Control charted on Billboard's European Top 100 Albums and European Hot 100 Singles charts. The single has sold more than 150,000 copies in the UK.

    First Meeting

    Import


    Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl

    First Meeting is the only album from the short-lived British Jazz-Rock septet Trifle, founded by singer George Bean, which also included trumpeter Dick Cuthell, saxophonist Barrie Martin, keyboardist Alan Fealdman, guitarist John Hitchen, bassist Patrick King and drummer Chico Greenwood. The group folded shortly after this album was recorded as a result of the tragic death of its leader.

    The brass arrangements are excellent and the mostly original material is definitely up to the standard. In retrospect this forgotten gem should have been listened to over the years if not its obscurity and prompt disappearance from the shelves, as it is another Brass-Rock classic.
