    180 Gram Viny

    In 1976 Johnny Rotten and the Sex Pistols set the agenda for punk's year zero with 'Anarchy In The UK', a song that summed up the spirit, sound and attitude of the band in one shocking package. Two years later, the Sex Pistols were in tatters, but Rotten was as unsentimental as you'd hope. He reverted to his real name - John Lydon - and set about forming a band whose very identity kicked against press and media manipulation. Featuring bassist Jah Wobble, drummer Jim Walker and guitarist Keith Levene, his new group were Public Image Limited. The public image would be limited.

    PiL were a very distinct prospect from the Pistols, founded with a greater thought for rhythm, and with a sound that turned the page from snarling punk to a more experimental sound fusing rock, dance, folk, ballet, pop and dub. But that's not to say Lydon's new outfit lacked vitriol. 'Public Image' hits out against the notorious British tabloid press, who never gave Lydon an easy ride, and against his own Sex Pistols public image - "You only saw me for the clothes I wore".

    The debut single (and the album that followed) operated as a theme song and a manifesto: " my entrance/My own creation/My grand finale/My goodbye," as the lyrics had it. It is, essentially, the sound of four people letting loose in a studio - and not caring what anyone else thought.

    The Underside Of Power

    Includes 12-Page Booklet Insert

    "This is revolutionary music in the truest sense of
    the word. It demands action. It requires penance. It
    destroys expectations." - Stereogum

    "The Death Grips of gospel torching the South's
    dark underbelly." - Rolling Stone

    This is the musical response that dark times demand, one
    that not only shakes its fist but deploys it. Locally-informed
    global citizens, Algiers refuse to sit idly by while most
    contemporary artists appear perfectly content to sit out the
    revolution. Not only do Algiers harbor a purposeful sense of
    obligation in what they do on their latest resistance record
    The Underside Of Power, but they recognize the roots and
    thorns of precedent in said resistance.

    Beyond the technical necessities living their respective lives
    both in and outside of music, Algiers' continued deviation
    from a more traditional band approach created a more
    versatile sound, one that better incorporates a collective
    and respective panoply of influences and styles.

    Some of this is informed by their choice of collaborators in
    this process, a crew that includes Adrian Utley [Portishead],
    Ben Greenberg [Uniform, The Men], Randall Dunn [Sunn
    0)))], among others. Pick any track off The Underside of
    Power and the reference points expand exponentially, a
    dizzying and thrilling Recommended-If-You-Like list that
    would consume a series of afternoons.

    Poke at the seasoned members' bruised flesh, and out
    come wafting touchpoints as disparate and intriguing as
    Big Black, Wendy Carlos, John Carpenter, Cybotron, The
    Four Tops, Portishead, Public Image Limited, Steve Reich,
    and Nina Simone, to name but a few. Deep echoes of Black
    Lives Matter and its 20th-century forebears gather, surge,
    and subside in their often soulful work, a form of principled,
    acute dissent more interested in learning from the past
    than in evoking nostalgia.

    Strange Weather

    Numbered, Limited Edition Vinyl Pressed by The Pallas Group, Germany

    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Masters

    Strange Weather was Marianne Faithfull's first complete studio album following her recovery from a 17-year drug addiction. In her earlier recording career, many people were won over by her soft, feathery voice. Unfortunately, Faithfull's public image became tainted during her relationship with Mick Jagger in the late 1960s and drugs took over her life until the mid-1980s. The 1987 release contains a mix of rock, blues and cabaret and includes her re-recorded hit, As Tears Go By which proved to be even more poignant the second time around.

    The President's Dead (Awaiting Repress)

    The President's Dead is the first release by Okkervil River since 2005's masterful Black Sheep Boy project. Having spent most of 2005 touring and writing, the band and Jagjaguwar wanted to get this single out before 2006 came to a close. Locked in the grooves of this limited-edition vinyl-only release is what might be Okkervil River's most accessible and most contentious song, The President's Dead. A two-minute and forty-two second serving of alternative historical fiction camouflaged as a folk anthem tarted up as a pop single that never was, The President's Dead empathetically depicts the shock felt by a young Republican upon hearing news of an assassination over the radio, its lyrics shifting sneakily from images of public horror to those of private tenderness as its music performs a similarly schizoid leap. Meanwhile, sequestered away on side 2, the lyric that bobs atop the loping, twangy pop of The Room I'm Hiding In depicts a paranoid flight from vastly more powerful pursuers determined to exact the most severe punishment.

    Sticky Fingers (Super Deluxe)

    Remastered Album And Bonus CD Featuring Previously Unreleased Alternate Takes And Live Performances

    Plus 'Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out' CD, A DVD Featuring 2 Tracks From 'live At The Marquee' And 7" Vinyl With Brown Sugar And Wild Horses

    All Housed In A Presentation Box With Hardback Book Complete With Real Zip

    Plus Print, Poster, 4 Postcard Set And Mini Replica Of Band Cut Out

    The carefully put together 120 page limited edition book recounts the making of this classic Stones album with an extensive essay by Nick Kent, embellished with previously unpublished images of the band and lavishly illustrated with metallic gold ink throughout.

    Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums in the storied catalogue of the legendary Rolling Stones, is set to enthral a new generation of admirers. The 1971 classic - which captured the band at the absolute peak of their powers, on timeless tracks such as 'Brown Sugar,' 'Wild Horses,' 'Bitch,' 'Sister Morphine' and 'Dead Flowers'.

    Sticky Fingers was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Stargroves, Mick's country home and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingers was released shortly after the Stones became exiled in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking artwork in rock history by Andy Warhol, with its famous working zip on the front cover.

    Sticky Fingers has been repeatedly hailed as one of the Stones' all-time great albums, capturing their trademark combination of swagger and tenderness in a superb collection. It continued the incredible outpouring of creative energy that had produced 1968's Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed in 1969. After Sticky Fingers, the Stones' relocation to the south of France led to the double album masterpiece Exile On Main St. The highly acclaimed Sticky Fingers showcased the ever more inventive song writing of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and formidable guitar licks from Mick Taylor.

    The Super Deluxe edition will also house Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out!, the 13-track audio recording of the Stones' gig in Leeds in March 1971, shortly before their 'exile' in France began. The set included versions of the just-completed 'Brown Sugar,' 'Bitch' and 'Dead Flowers,' one of their many authentic forays into country music territory.

    The first sessions that led to Sticky Fingers took place as far back as December 1969, in the remote location of Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, Alabama. The band then reconvened, back home in the UK both at Olympic and with the Rolling Stones Mobile parked up at Mick Jagger's Stargroves home.

    On April 23, 1971, 504 days after that first session in Alabama, Sticky Fingers was released, cheered on by media and public alike. "It is the latest beautiful chapter in the continuing story of the greatest rock group in the world," wrote Rolling Stone.
