    Nuggets: Orginal Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968

    Ranked 196/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    First released in 1972 on Elektra Records, the compilation is among the only 'various artists' titles to consistently wind up on published lists of 'all-time top albums'. Nuggets spawned more than 200 like-minded collections under such titles as Pebbles and Back From The Grave, and is a consistent compilation favourite and has carved out a genre of its own.


    In order to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first ever Nuggets compilation this year, Rhino is releasing the 'Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era: 1965-1968'!

    Psychedelic Lollipop

    The Blues Magoos launched their recording career with a major smash, hitting the Top Five with the brash garage-punk anthem (We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet. That tune is just one of the multiple pleasures of Psychedelic Lollipop, notable as one of the first albums (along with the 13th Floor Elevators' debut) to use the word psychedelic in its title. The band balances swaggering proto-punk attitude, a Beatlesque pop sensibility and adventurous acid-pop experimentalism on such tunes as Gotta Get Away, One by One and Love Seems Doomed. And the Magoos' high-energy workouts on James Brown's I'll Go Crazy and John Loudermilk's Tobacco Road rank with the greatest versions of those much-covered garage-band standards.


    This 60s garage-psych nugget is now available from Sundazed on High Definition Vinyl, sourced from the original Mercury-label stereo masters, with the colorful original cover art meticulously reproduced.


    In their '60s heyday, the Blues Magoos were one of the first garage-punk bands to achieve mainstream success, and one of the first to embrace psychedelia. Early in their existence, the Bronx-bred quintet's high-energy live sets made them a popular attraction on the Greenwich Village club scene. Once they began making records, they quickly emerged as one of one of the earliest and most inventive exponents of the psychedelic sound. The band's 1966 debut album Psychedelic Lollipop and its 1967 followup Electric Comic Book, are two of that period's most beloved and enduring albums.

    Rip This


    A perfect form of release - it heaps up mounds of
    high tension, but in the most cathartic and enjoyable
    possible way. - NPR


    A punk-fired garage tinkerer handy with all the tools
    one needs to jury-rig some tasty rock nuggets - SPIN
    Original Rock n' Roll Swagger at its finest - Hypetrak


    A pungent, effective collision of garage rock- bashing
    and Ramones sneer
    - NY Times


    When Bass Drum of Death started touring the rock club circuit
    outside Oxford, Mississippi, several years ago, there was a legitimate
    concern that the band's appeal might be limited to fans of the
    garage scene. With a seemingly never-ending series of tour dates,
    BDoD nonetheless transformed rooms full of normally
    too-cool-to-rock indie crowds into a mob of sweaty, stage-diving
    maniacs. Meanwhile, Madison Avenue, eager to cash in on hip
    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.

    Another classic LP from the P-Funk camp, originally released in 1973.

    Paul's Tomb: A Triumph

    Three years in the making, Paul's Tomb: A Triumph marks Frog Eyes' thunderous, frantic, fiery return. This is a slow-brewed masterpiece that is unmistakably Frog Eyes, a new album that was very much worth the wait. On this point we feel unassailable: Frog Eyes keeps getting better and better. Frog Eyes are equally informed by Scott Walker and Roxy Music, Nuggets collections and the Everly Brothers. But in truth, Frog Eyes' recordings sound like nothing else but Frog Eyes.

    Apache Dropout

    Apache Dropout is a full on lysergic boogie trio from Southern Indiana who've self-released a handful of recordings while touring the sub-U.S. during the past couple years. Finally, their debut LP is here to catch you up with their three-minute-&-less anthems crafted of '60s epoch fuzz. With mostly guitar/bass/drums they channel soul melodies, primitive rock thump and blasted solos that are soaked in the dimethyl-trip of teenage visions. Recorded by the band at their own Magnetic South Studio, they've pushed these 11 songs into highly textured nuggets of punk art.

    A new force in song craft, Cate Le Bon resides in Cardiffm Wales's French quarter and befitting a songwriter who only writes in the dark, her music is a heady and personal Gallic stew of equal parts Nico, Malkmus and the chronicler's own observations on the impossibility of existence. Drawing on her experiences of the last year, Cate created collection of pop nuggets imbued with the playfulness of Faust and Syd Barrett and the tropical melodies of Os Mutantes. Existential word play and fuzz fused guitar lines tear through like an angry bee in a CAN on 'CYRK'. Currently on tour w/ St. Vincent.

    Rose Ave

    You+Me (sometimes written You Plus Me) are a folk music duo consisting of Canadian musician-singer-songwriter Dallas Green and American singer-songwriter Alecia Moore, better known as Pink. Moore and Green met through mutual friends several years prior to their collaboration. The first time they sang together Green had asked Moore to sing with him at one of his shows. They remained friends and Green opened several shows for Moore in the U.K. Moore had considered singing acoustic ballads, and as friends the two had considered collaborating for several years. In March 2014, their schedules allowed them to get together and compose original songs. They had written musical nuggets in advance, and their debut album Rose Ave. took shape within a week.

    Living In America


    Available On Vinyl For The First Time!


    Living In America is the debut album by Swedish New Wave band The Sounds, released in 2002.


    The Sounds embrace epic bands like Blondie, The Cars, Missing Persons and those obscure Garage Rock groups that make up the legendary Nuggets series. Their appearance even a band like Blondie, and they both look and play the part, with black T-shirts, faded jeans, and snappy three-minute songs with trebly keyboard vamps and tightly wound guitar riffs.


    The album plays like a collection of A-sides, and indeed it spawned five singles; the second single, Living in America, reached #3 on the Swedish single charts and is featured in the 2010 video game, Rock Band 3. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) awarded the album a Platinum certification in 2003.

    Carolina

    Rening the psych-pop nuggets of their debut LP, In
    Limbo, TEEN's new Carolina EP is a stepping stone in the
    way that all good extended plays are. The band - lead
    singer and multi-instrumentalist Teeny Lieberson,
    keyboardist Lizzie Lieberson, drummer Katherine
    Lieberson (the three are sisters), and bassist Jane
    Herships---recorded the ve-song record with producer
    Daniel Schlett, who recently worked on DIIV's Oshin, at
    Strange Weather studio in Brooklyn.


    While In Limbo's songs have many layers and effects,
    TEEN intended Carolina to be a more natural affair, with
    the band only playing what they could physically perform
    in a live setting. Teeny sings in a higher register here,
    inspired by Kate Bush and Al Green. "Our music in the
    past was so about interweaving melodies, creating
    movement by syncopation, and simple chord structures,"
    Teeny says. "It felt like the next step forward would be to
    take a more simplistic, live approach, play lines in unison
    and create a different kind of conversation between the
    instruments.

    BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini

    One month after releasing their fourth studio album, Celestial Lineage, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM recorded two live tracks at the BBC's Maida Vale studios. Southern Lord offers these sessions as a special vinyl release. It seems only fitting that Olympia's earthen black metal expanders, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, would add their name to the roster of acts who have recorded at the Maida Vale studios, the place where the sounds of contemporary and outstanding artists throughout the last century of popular music have been documented for the ages.


    WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM's shadow, cast long and eerie from their campfire of the arcane, eclipses the hordes of black metal clones and drones, hewing raw nuggets of inspired music from rich seams of extreme metal and astral vibrations. "Prayer of Transformation" and "Thuja Magus Imperium" are the two tracks recorded on that day, taken from their lauded album Celestial Vintage and spanning two sides of vinyl and twenty minutes. Entitled BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini, this session is testament to the band's ability to inspire awe with homespun strands of metaphysical ambiance and painstakingly flexed sinews of metal, and is a must for all fans of the band as well as followers of contemporary metal.

    Smith Westerns

    Rummaging through 1970s glam, Phil Spector teen-pop, and Nuggets garage-punk with the youthful abandon of kids finding new toys in the attic, the Smith Westerns' self-titled debut exudes an earnestness almost as pure as its recording levels are deafening. Their simple, sweet choruses about boys and girls in love could spike the punch at a 1970s TV show school dance.


    When singing guitarist Cullen Omori, his bassist brother Cameron, second guitarist Max Kakacek, and a drummer known as Hal have the tunes to make themselves heard over their vintage aesthetic, The Smith Westerns' teenage kicks are hard to beat. Take string-swept glam ballad Be My Girl. which softly punctuates one of the year's most wrenchingly innocent hooks with somewhat risque pick-up lines. There's less lyrical subtext, but no less raunchy production, on the glam-rock boogie of Girl in Love, a come-on cursorily addressing the fleetingness of youth. It's only fitting that the Smith Westerns both look and sound like the Black Lips' good-bad not-evil twins.


    These guys are sort of literally true to their school, garage-rocker Miss Alex White is a fellow Northside College Prep magnet-school alum, and their time on the road with the likes of Jay Reatard and Nobunny is evident on fine 60s-style frat-rocker Gimme Some Time. With fuzzed-out xylophone, frenetic opener Dreams suggests the group's most recent tour with Girls and Los Campesinos! might serve them better for a follow-up. Diamond Boys almost earns its piano on the strength of its adolescent grandiosity, but We Stay Out lets lo-fi become the end rather than the means, with a guitar line that sounds like a bee buzzing underwater.

    Dad Loves His Work

    Recorded amidst a failing marriage, ongoing heroin addiction, alcohol dependency, and a sense of fading commercial prowess, James Taylors Dad Loves His Work is an emotional juggernaut and musical marvel. Long considered a classic of the singer-songwriter domain, the 1981 effort stands as Taylors last real great album and an involving aural artwork that simmers with honesty, conviction, and feeling.



    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition 180g LP marks the first time this classic has been properly remastered. Far exceeding the sonics of Sonys CD reissue, this audiophile version lifts up the cover on a world of sound, with Taylors mellow finger-picked guitar melodies, gently reassuring vocals, and bittersweet deliveries brought to the fore. Listeners will also be able to relax amidst the soft clouds of comforting background singing by ace guests Jennifer Warnes, J.D. Souther, and Peter Asher.



    With the title reflecting the singers answer to his then-wife, Carly Simon, Dad Loves His Work remains a statement of certainty and priority that Taylor invests with devastating poignancy, physiological soulfulness, and universal pathos. Balancing the biting edginess and forlorn despair with equal parts self-deprecating humor and rapier wit, Taylors songwriting on such nuggets as Hard Times, Hour That the Morning Comes, and charged Stand and Fight is among the best of his career.



    No surprise, then, that Taylor wasnt only looking at and reflecting upon his own life, but that of his relationship with his own father and ancestors. The emotional repercussions involved with such looming themes trickle through the harmony-laden music, spurred by the vocalists trademark acoustic guitar, shivering harmonicas, Rhodes pianos, myriad percussive devices, and tasteful synthesizer passages.



    Taylors definitive duet with Souther on Her Town Too bridged both the pop and adult-contemporary charts, catapulting Dad Loves His Work in the Top Ten and past sales of one million copies. Similarly, Taylor expands his horizons on the politically motivated Sugar Trade, co-written by Jimmy Buffett.



    Mobile Fidelitys collectible audiophile 180g LP brings you into Taylors private world with unparalleled intensity and extreme closeness. Taylor feels every word he sings on this record, and now, thanks to meticulous remastering efforts, his expressiveness and sensitivity coming through via unencumbered transparency and dynamic acoustics. This edition of Dad Loves His Work is not to be missed!

    Butter Knife


    Limited First Edition LP Pressed On Translucent Gold Vinyl


    LP Comes With 18x24 Insert / Poster


    After nine years of existence, Fullerton's Audacity has left the garage of their
    humble 9th grade beginning, but the garage hasn't left the spirit of their
    music. With two LPs, a slew of EPs, and no shortage of touring under their
    belts, Audacity are hardly a wet-behind-the-ears rock band. Their
    razor-sharp musicianship and high-energy performances were solid enough
    to earn them the privilege of serving as the backing band for both King Tuff
    and Todd Congelliere (Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland).
    And while you could hear the band pushing at the boundaries on their prior
    releases-a nod to Descendents melodic hardcore here, a dash of
    Replacements' bar-band irtations there-Audacity seems less interested in
    showing a broad swath of inuences as they are in delivering the craftiest
    hooks and sweatiest live show possible.


    Audacity's latest full-length Butter Knife is still, at its core, a garage rock
    record. The economic instrumentation, grit-tinged guitar jangle,
    pogo-prompting tempos, and sing-along choruses can all be traced back to
    the seminal Nuggets collections. But ultimately, Butter Knife doesn't sound so
    much like an homage to The Sonics as it sounds like a young band striving to
    make the most ebullient and jubilant noise possible. Album opener "Couldn't
    Hold A Candle" is a perfect introduction to Audacity's battle plan-a
    balanced blend of pop sensibility and ribald power. "Hole In The Sky"
    showcases the band's gift for the on-the-dime changes, sophisticated
    melodies, and clever instrumental interplay. "Red Wine" demonstrates a
    Robert Pollard-like knack for turning an unexpected chord combination into a
    remarkably punchy chorus. And album closer "Autumn" harkens back to the
    balladry of power pop kings Big Star. All of which is to say, Audacity are
    tighter and more clever than your average suburban band, and consequently
    they're one of the strongest acts in the Southern Californian garage rock
    scene surrounding Fullerton's DIY label Burger Records (Black Lips, Nobunny,
    Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees).

    Electric Comic Book

    The Blues Magoos launched their recording career with the LP Psychedelic Lollipop. The equally impressive Electric Comic Book refines the band's mix of rock 'n' roll and day-glo psychedelia. That punchy yet playful approach animates such distinctive numbers as Pipe Dream, Rush Hour, There's a Chance We Can Make It and Albert Common Is Dead.

    This '60s garage-psych nugget is now available from Sundazed on High Definition Vinyl, sourced from the original Mercury-label stereo masters, with the colorful original cover art meticulously reproduced.


    In their '60s heyday, the Blues Magoos were one of the first garage-punk bands to achieve mainstream success, and one of the first to embrace psychedelia. Early in their existence, the Bronx-bred quintet's high-energy live sets made them a popular attraction on the Greenwich Village club scene. Once they began making records, they quickly emerged as one of one of the earliest and most inventive exponents of the psychedelic sound.

    Fever Tree

    Fever Tree's lone hit single, the haunting 1968 tribal anthem San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native), perfectly captured the spirit of the psychedelic era. Although their signature hit led many to assume that they were a Bay Area band, Fever Tree actually hailed from Houston, Texas. San Francisco Girls quickly emerged as a staple of American underground Fm radio, and won the band an international audience after becoming an airplay favorite of influential British DJ John Peel.


    San Francisco Girls is also the centerpiece of Fever Tree's self-titled first LP, one of the period's most distinctive debut efforts. As the album demonstrates, the quintet was adept at incorporating jazz and classical influences, ambitious song structures and resourceful production touches. Such memorable numbers as The Sun Also Rises and Come with Me (Rainsong benefit from Dennis Keller's hypnotic vocals, Michael Knust's dynamic guitar work and Rob Landes' inventive keyboard textures. Also included is a memorable medley of the Beatles' Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out, and a unique interpretation of the Neil Young/Buffalo Springfield nugget Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing. Fever Tree's expansive musical settings also feature key contributions from a pair of noted arrangers: David Angel, renowned for his work of Love's Forever Changes and Gene Page, whose resume includes work with the likes of Phil Spector and Marvin Gaye.


    Fever Tree would release three more well-received albums, before disbanding at the dawn of the 1970s. Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the band's vintage work, and this one-of-a-kind debut album remains a deeply compelling sonic artifact.


    The vinyl edition of this vintage gem is mastered from the original analog tapes, features complete original cover art and is pressed on high quality, high-definition vinyl, the better to recapture the original magic of this timeless album.

    House Arrest


    Sure The Doldrums and Worn Copy had some hits and humdingers on them, but Ariel Pink's 2002 album House Arrest never lets up. Its hit after hit after hit. Sorta like if you listened to your friends boom box mix tape from Top 40 radio around 1985.


    Think you've heard enough Ariel Pink? Well our favorite omnivorous media junkie from LA still has a few tricks left up his sleevelike the left-of-center House Arrest. Sure The Doldrums and Worn Copy had some hits and humdingers on them, but House Arrest never lets up. It's hit after hit after hit. Sorta like if you listened to your friend's boom box mix tape from Top 40 radio around 1985. Some people might think that sounds like a recipe for disaster. We say bring on the Doritos.


    Originally released in 2002 as part of a split double-CD set, then re-released with a couple of bonus tracks (including the multipart epic Netherlands) in 2006, House Arrest, much like every other Ariel Pink release so far, provides a small sampling of Ariel Rosenberg's self-recorded compositions, laid down on a trusty eight-track at home. Unlike so many warbling troubadours who seem to think the recorded-in-a-bedroom approach means a license to be maudlin, Rosenberg brings an exuberant joy to his work, finding something that a full band recording might actually kill the spirit of. The queasy tones and gently distanced verses of the opening Hardcore Pops Are Fun is instant put-a-smile-on-your-face stuff, helping to set the tone for the whole collection. The demented synth pop merriment of Flying Circles suggests an '80s nugget swathed in psychedelic haze, a gentle breeziness apparent on many other songs like the giddy Every Night I Die at Miyagis or the nervous funk of Alisa, easily one of the best songs on the album thanks to some exquisite vocals in particular. Though his connection to personal hero R. Stevie Moore is often mentioned, Rosenberg's role model here often seems to be Andy Partridge instead -- check out the distinctly XTC-like hiccupping on Gettin' High in the Morning, not to mention the quick herky-jerk arrangements. Rosenberg's preference to add layers of echo on his voice means sometimes his lyrics only emerge in fits and starts, but when they do they often are wryly witty or amusingly theatrical -- it fits with the amusing rock pose on the back cover, a knowing embrace of a trope. So when he sings about how West Coast calamities are worth more than the East Coast variety or how he's one of those egomaniacs who just want to siiiing, who's to deny how he plays around with the ideas?

    Friends (Pure Pleasure)

    Friends is the accurate and revealing title for New York bluesman Eric Bibb's tenth album since 1997. The cuts here feature rootsy folk and blues collaborations with different 'friends' in differing small group settings. The set starts with a killer acoustic slide duet between Bibb and Guy Davis on the nugget 99 ½ Won't Do. The contrast between Davis' sweet and smoky delivery and Bibb's husky wail - akin to Blind Willie Johnson's in places - offers a double-sided dimension in interpretation for the listener, as well. Elsewhere, Charlie Musselwhite gives a killer snaky harmonica performance on Six O' Clock Blues. Taj Mahal makes two appearances; one in a duet on Goin' Down Slow, and one in a trio with Bibb and Malian guitarist Djelimady Tounkara on a medley of the traditional Kulanjan and Bibb's own Sebastian's Tune. Speaking of Mali, and Mahal, Bibb also covers the elder bluesman's classic Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes, with the great kora player Mamadou Diabate that rivals the original. There's also a gorgeous version of Guy and Susanna Clark's The Cape, with guitarist Martin Simpson, Bibb's moving For You with Ruthie Foster, and Tain't No Such Thing, a bright new folk song written and sung with legendary folksinger Odetta. Mohan Veena ace Harry Manx performs with Bibb on the high lonesome, droning blues of Needed Time, and with Kristina Olsen on her If I Stayed. The set closes with the tender Dance Me to the End of Love, (an original, not the Leonard Cohen tune) with the Lovin' Spoonful Jerry Yester playing piano. Given that most records of this type are mixed bags at best, with 'star-studded' collabs serving to muck up or water down rather than enhance performances, Friends is an anomaly. There is nothing that's obvious or overblown here, everything is subtly shaded, and the performers serve the songs and not themselves. The listener gets no sense of back-patting or self-congratulation, only the great pleasure of hearing this music in a revealing, emotionally honest way. Bravo.

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Windowlicker

    Windowlicker consists of James' voice modulated on computer, mixed with his trademark breakbeat snare rushes, drum samples, and mixed choir-like singing, resulting in a smooth yet erratic song with the last minute of the track escalating into an extremely distorted wall of bass. Also included is a sample of a French-canadian voice, saying J'aime faire des croquettes au chien (translating to I like to make dog nuggets).

    Vanishing Point

    25 years in, Vanishing Point affirms that, even in an age where only the newest of the new can survive, Mudhoney still have plenty to say and more to offer. These are songs written from the rare vantage point of a band who went through the rock n' roll meat-grinder and not only lived to tell such a tale, they came out full of the wisdom and dark humor such a journey provides. Vanishing Point is filled with dread, psychoanalysis and Nuggets-on-fire riffs; the sort of uninhibited rock music that is harder and harder to locate these days. With Vanishing Point, Mudhoney makes it easy.

    180 Gram Audiophile Pressed At RTI


    From The Original Master Tapes


    Faithful Reproduction Of The Original Artwork


    Mono


    Mike Condello did it all in four decades in the music business: serve as music director for two local Phoenix TV shows (Teen Beat and The Wallace & Ladmo Show), lead his own bands like Hub Cap and the Wheels, parody the Beatles with Commodore Condello's Salt River Navy Band, and even play with luminaries like Keith Moon, the Tubes, and Jackson Browne. In 1968, he also led his own band - which released the psychedelic masterwork Phase 1 on Scepter Records. Featuring a young Bill Spooner (pre-Tubes) on guitar, the album flows and trickles through your mind with more saturation than Lucy and her diamonds in the sky - picking up a few nuggets, boulders, and pebbles in the emergent violet haze. The phases of this pricey rarity - mastered from the original analog reels and pressed on lush 180 gram vinyl by RTI - are guaranteed to put your mind into a psychedelized headswirl trip that you'll want to take again and again.

    Kentish Longtails

    'Rock and Roll doesn't need saving; the cure's right here.' That's what David Fricke, the legendary Rolling Stone journalist said of The Len Price 3, an English pop band who deliver instantly memorable tunes and an unstoppable whirlwind of power. With an ever growing and ferociously loyal world-wide following, twelve years and five albums under their belts, they remain the best kept secret in show business.


    Their new release, 'Kentish Longtails' namechecks a piece of local folklore concerning a curse allegedly placed upon the people of Strood by Thomas à Becket which condemned the children of this town on the banks of the Medway to be born with tails. Thankfully tail-less, but with tall tales and colourful harmonies intact, the Len Price 3 deliver catchy vintage pop tunes with plenty of punk rock oomph and a sprinkling of sonic weirdness. Expect melodic nuggets, shiny pop hooks and rich lyrical content laden with wry social observations and acid tongued retorts.


    Glenn said, 'With this album we took a slightly different approach. I wrote a number of songs whilst on holiday and I also chose to pretend I was writing for a different band on several tracks, which was a liberating experience. We recorded most of the tracks ourselves too in Steve's garage & Neil's shed. It was like three lads messing around with a tape recorder in their first band, so very relaxed and with a looser vibe. We're really pleased with the songs and the way the album has turned out.'
