    Renegades

    Import

    Remastered


    Following 3 studio albums with original material (all available on Music on Vinyl) Rage Against The Machine
    offered a tribute to their musical heroes, showing a broad variety in their favourite artists and genres. The
    album (rel. 2000) proved to be their latest studio album and includes songs originally made famous by artists
    like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Minor Threat, Eric B. & Rakim, EPMD, MC5, The Rolling Stones, Cypress
    Hill, Devo and Afrika Bambaataa.


    Instead of just giving each song the hard-riffing-and-rapping treatment, each song is treated differently,
    resulting in a musically varied album. For instance, Renegades of Funk and ´Microphone Fiend´ have never
    been rocked so hard before, whereas The Ghost of Tom Joad is Rage Against The Machine more subtle than
    youve ever heard before!

    Kick Out The Jams

    Last Young Renegade

    I think one of the big things as we were working on the record, was just pushing ourselves forward, All Time Low singer Alex Gaskarth explained in a recent Alternative Press interview discussing the band's new single, 'Dirty Laundry.' When we put out Don't Panic, we hit the reset button on the band and we started looking at Don't Panic as if it was our first record out of the gate as a more realized version of All Time Low.


    Then [there was] Future Hearts, he continues. And that felt like we started pushing the envelope forward and trying to expand the sound and grow. 'Dirty Laundry' is a continuation of that. It's taking the idea from the last album and continuing to push it forward and explore new things.


    'Last Young Renegade' is All Time Low's Fueled By Ramen debut and follow-up to the band's 2015 release, Future Hearts.

    Live From Austin, TX (Steve Earle)

    This show, his first appearance on Austin City Limits, captures the excitement and free spirit of that first seminal album, Guitar Town, which was nothing less than a collection of personal odysseys. He was certainly a musical renegade from day one, and that's one thing about him that hasn't changed. This performance displays the vintage Steve Earle sound that paved the way for a new generation of country rockers willing to buck the Nashville system.

    Our Revolution

    Guitarist Roger Lomas and Singer/Guitarist Pip Whitcher (AKA Rog & Pip) were members of Coventry freakbeat legends The Sorrows. Along with the other remaining members of the band they relocated to Italy in the late 60s due to huge popularity over there. Homesick, the pair returned back to the UK before the swinging decade was even over.The pair continued writing material together, eventually becoming a partnership lasting well into the 70s. During this time they recorded a vast amount of material, mainly at the state of the art AIR studios. Fortunately, budding producer (and Grammy award winner) Lomas made sure he kept tapes of everything they recorded, the fruits of which can be heard here for the very first time!Starting with Sabbath/ Zeppelin-esque proto-metal blast of debut single From a Window/War Lord, they released a string of singles under various guises such as Rog & Pip, Renegade and the Zips. The sounds they created progressed with the times, yet they always maintained a raw and gritty aggressive tone, whether performing bulldozing metal or hard-edged early glam rock. Our Revolution will give you a glimpse into the world of Rog and Pip and make you wonder why they never really cracked it as a duo. Their songs will do the talking.

    Every Hero Needs A Villain

    Comic Book Inspired Cover From L'amour Supreme (Mishka NYC)


    Includes A Comic Book Written By Esoteric With Artwork By Gilberto Aguirre Mata (El Ultimo Codice) & L'amour Supreme


    CZARFACE - Wu-Tang founding MC Inspectah Deck and veteran Boston duo 7L & Esoteric - isn't concerned
    with the glitz and the B.S. that modern consumer culture is pushing. And neither are the group's fans.


    In 2013, the trio appeared relatively unassumingly with their self-titled debut, which was chiefly produced by DJ 7L and included guests ranging from Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna to Vinnie Paz, Action Bronson and Roc Marciano. The soon-to-be acclaimed group found out quickly that there was a groundswell of hip-hop fanatics thirsting for the lunchpail, lyrics-above-all-else rap they fell in love with in the '90s. Several pressings of the album on CD, 2-LP and even cassette later, they are back and ready to up the ante.


    This time around the group is the same, but it's fair to say that all three men have stepped up their game. "We knew how we felt about the last album, but weren't sure how it would be received by listeners," explains MC Esoteric. "But people really responded to it, even more than we had hoped. That gave us the confidence to really spread our wings and let loose on this one. The chemistry is even tighter this time around. We know exactly what lanes we are cruising in and what weight class we are fighting in for Round 2."


    Inspectah Deck adds, "Czarface is like the Danger Room for the X-Men, I can use all my weapons on there. When I'm in Wu-Tang, I have to come a certain way because we have a certain style of fan, when I'm here doing the Czarface projects, it allows me to actually be an MC, it allows me to actually just spit...I love that. I love when i can just spit freely and just be an MC."


    The fighting analogy - whether drawn from pugilism or '80s wrestling, both which figure into Every Hero Needs A Villain - is an apt one, considering the unrelenting lyrical attacks that Deck and Esoteric unleash on track after track, each trying to one-up the previous verse.


    Best of all, it is friendly camaraderie, based around a loose theme of renegade mutant MC talents running wild. DJ 7L explains, "All three of us are influenced by comics, sci-fi movies, TV, wrestling. Czarface encompasses all of that, and it helps with the visuals as well."


    On the production side, 7L shows yet again - as he did with the group's debut - that he remains a formidable yet underappreciated musical force, constantly providing hard, funky and alternatingly ominous backdrops for the assembled MCs to use as lyrical luge paths.


    If that wasn't enough, the double LP comes packaged with "Death & Abduction," a comic written by Esoteric, and has an explosive, comic-book-inspired cover by L'amour Supreme (Mishka NYC).

    Little Girl Blue Remixed

    Perhaps not as well known to the general public, Bethlehem Records earned its place in Jazz history with the release of debut albums from artists like Carmen McRae, Chris Connor, Herbie Mann and Johnny Hartman. Besides that, check those early covers - pure art!


    Bethlehem's most famous release is the 1958 debut album by Nina Simone, Little Girl Blue. So when DJ Maestro got the chance to remix this album, he was thrilled. Soon he got the idea to ask some of his favorite producers to collaborate, like Mop Mop, Renegades of Jazz, Gramophonedzie, Fab Samperi, The Reflex and Mees Dierdorp.


    One thing they all had in common: excitement to work with the original recordings from this iconic album. The result is 14 remixes, each with a unique approach to the original song, and all with a contemporary feel.

    An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979)

    An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979) compiles
    unreleased recordings from the archives of multiversal artist Ariel Kalma.
    Concerned as much with musicality as spiritual facility, Kalma's work
    vibrates aside fellow travelers along the great rainbow in curved air of
    the 1970s avant-garde.


    Ariel Kalma's boundary-blurring electronic music is heard here in
    radiant detail across a selection of work spanning his early free-jazz
    and spoken word trips to his infinite modular synthesizer and primitive
    drum machine meditations. Kalma's story is one of world travel, musical
    discovery and ego-abandonment. Yet for an artist who often discarded
    public recognition in favor of the ascetic truths in music making, An
    Evolutionary Music offers the imprint of an outright auteur.


    Born in France, but rarely in one place for long, Ariel Kalma's 1970s
    migrations took flight through the decade's furthest spaces of musical
    and spiritual invention. As a hired horn for well-known French groups,
    the young musician toured as far as India, a place where Kalma would
    learn circular breathing techniques enabling him to sustain notes without
    pause against tape-looping harmonies configured through his homemade
    effects units.


    Those effects evolved from Kalma's loyalty to a beloved dual ReVox
    set-up- two tape machines "chained" together to form a primitive delay
    unit. Over looped saxophone melodies, Kalma would mix in all shades of
    polyphonic color, synthesizing fragments of poetry with ambient space or
    setting modal flute melodies to rippling drum machine patterns and starlit
    field recordings.


    In France during the mid-1970s, Kalma was staffed as a technician at
    Pierre Henry's legendary Institut National Audiovisuel, Groupe de Recherches
    Musicales (INA GRM) studios - the same music concrÉte laboratory that
    spawned masterpieces by members Luc Ferrari, Iannis Xenakis, and Bernard
    Parmegiani. Like his predecessors and colleagues at INA GRM, Kalma's
    relationship to sound was both formal and non-hierarchical. To Kalma, all
    music existed as related universal patterns, in perfect harmony with the
    people, places and environments it was created.


    Kalma's recorded output of the 1970s culminated in the now scarcely-available Les Temps des Moissons (trans. The Time of Harvest) in 1975,
    and a masterpiece of birdsong exploration with Osmose in 1978. Osmose
    is double album featuring sculptor Richard Tinti, who had supplied Kalma
    with hours of field recordings from the rainforests of Borneo.


    An Evolutionary Music harvests uncatalogued music made between
    Kalma's private press records and onward through the many small-batch
    cassette releases Kalma would tender. With this collection of musical
    hybridity and distinct genre-corrosion, Ariel Kalma's righteous bucking of
    both popular music trends and the academic tenets of the avant-garde
    falls squarely in the spirit of other renegades of sacred new-music such as
    Terry Riley, La Monte Young, and Charlemagne Palestine.

    Music Is Painting In The Air 1974-1977

    Music Is Painting In the Air is a collection of new mixes and unheard music from Sensations' Fix's prolific output between 1974 and 1977. Revered as one of the great articulations of progressive music, Music Is Painting In the Air offers guide posts to those familiar with Sensations' Fix's amorphous catalog and an approachable primer to those just journeying on the sensational trip.



    The story of Sensations' Fix begins - and never quite ends - with Franco Falsini. Born in Florence, Italy in 1948, Falsini became a teenage rock 'n' roll convert through a steady supply of 45s sent home by his London-based sister. Following his sister's footsteps to swinging 60s London, Falsini put his love of music into practice, fronting a space blues trio that riffed its way from the UK back to Italy in a Ford Transit.



    Falsini became smitten by Vinnie Sherman, an American woman working as a waitress at a nightclub in Florence where Falsini was holding down a residency. The newlywed lovers made their way to Alexandria, Virginia in the summer of 1969. Arriving on August 15th, the first day of Woodstock, a spirit of freedom filled Falsini and fueled his creative proclivity.



    Falsini blazed a trail for home recording that has impressed upon inward resourcing and reflecting musicians and DIY enthusiasts in the decades since. A technology stalwart, Falsini employed a floor model MiniMoog and a tricked-out Teac 4-track machine to transform the Virginia basement of the house shared with Sherman into a cosmic conduit and launch pad for Sensations' Fix.



    The reach for space from a personal place is nowhere more apparent than on Fragments of Light, early basement recordings solicited by Falsini as deal demos and surprisingly flipped into the first of six Sensations' Fix albums released over the next five years. The up-close fidelity of Fragments - coupled with Falsini's emotive guitar leads and sparse, sentimental vocals - creates a private quality that separates the album from other extravagant progressive rock productions contemporary to its 1974 release.



    Relocating back to Italy on the heels of Fragments' release, Falsini, alongside drummer Keith Edwards and bassist Richard Ursillo (both American expats), charged through another two Sensations' Fix albums, Portable Madness in 1974 and Finest Finger in 1976, and a stunning solo album Cold Nose (Naso Fredo) in 1975. Without marketing or tour support to expose Sensations' Fix to a wider European audience, Falsini and his band of psychedelic renegades left Italy for the golden shores of California and their possible salvation. In 1977, Sensations' Fix released Vision's Fugitive on an independent label and fulfilled their major label obligation shortly after with Boxes Paradise.



    Falsini spent the next couple decades between New York City and Paris, creatively contentedly creating above par electro-pop (The Antennas) before returning to Florence to launch the Interactive Test dance music label. Meanwhile, the legend of Sensations' Fix grew. On his 2002 album, The Private Press, DJ Shadow sampled from two Sensations' Fix songs. More recently, Sonic Youth curated a career retrospective titled Sensational Fix at Life Gallery in Saint-Nazaire France.



    For Music is Painting in the Air, Falsini and his son Jeyon set forth on a year-long voyage to restore and revisit the original Sensations' Fix analog tapes. Honoring Falsini's tradition of autonomy, this collection, as with the majority of the Sensations' Fix catalog, was mixed solely by Falsini. The sequence is chronologically defiant, encouraging the listener to free associate the recurring themes' origins and immerse in the body of music as its own universe.



    Once this celestial body suit is occupied, it becomes apparent why the forward-thinking yet emotionally-accessible quality of Sensations' Fix's music is still finding the universal audience for which its intended. Falsini's disregard for time and insistence on reinvention provides an infinite reach for his music. The end-goal was seemingly unmarketable by the industry then, but perfectly harmonious with a culture constantly evolving now.

    Riverman's Daughter

    The Grahams, the creative union of lifelong romantic partners Alyssa and Doug Graham, combine soulful bluegrass with hints of earthy Americana, adding colors from traditional folk and country blues, into an infectious blend of storytelling that results in songs of love, loss, yearning, and the view from rural American roads less traveled.


    While the duo first met in grade school -- a trait shared by previous musical trail-blazers, from Lennon/McCartney to Jagger/Richards - the Grahams' journey together began when they were teenagers in the shadow of New York City. There, Alyssa, the impassioned troubadour, and Doug, the guitarist extraordinaire, shared a mutual love for the music of the Woodstock era and the adventures of the great outdoors. Over the ensuing years many a campfire lit acoustic jam would include the best of roots renegades like Neil Young, The Band, Gram Parsons, Janis and Emmylou along with more than a few Jerry Garcia and Johnny Cash nuggets. Later, spending much of their time in the secluded Adirondack Mountains at the Graham family fold, Alyssa and Doug learned the time-honored craft of songwriting. Here, their ongoing interests in traditional country, mountain bluegrass and folk legends such as The Carter Family and Mississippi John Hurt would blossom. Hoping to share their stories on a wider stage, the couple eventually settled in New York City, where they performed, collaborated and recorded a variety of acclaimed material before adopting The Grahams moniker.


    While the duo had written music together before, in the summer of 2012 new writing sessions yielded a different approach. Something magical was happening between Alyssa and Doug. A catalyst was born in the new song Riverman's Daughter, a tale of love, loss, and hardship on the river that showcases Alyssa's bountiful voice. Backed by her own rhythm guitar, along with the strong current of Doug's cascading accompaniment on the six string, and traditional vocal harmonies, the track came in a lightning bolt of inspiration. A vision and calling to write more songs of its kind took hold.


    Alyssa and Doug had an idea: What if they put their city lives on hold and, armed with just guitars and backpacks, traveled the 2,500 miles of highways and byways of the Mississippi River from Minnesota to Louisiana. Light out for the territory, so to speak, like Huck and Jim. There, the duo could follow the Great River Road (GRR) that parallels the waterway, meet the people, and hear first-hand where European folk music, brought to these shores generations ago, took root alongside rhythms and chants from Africa, and how these polarizing sounds formed the backbone of our 20th Century American musical heritage. And so The Grahams did just that, and in the process created their debut album, Riverman's Daughter. Along the way The Grahams played gigs at the various gin and juke joints that dotted the GRR, and met a colorful cast of characters and genuine music makers with whom the duo shared and exchanged stories through the common bond of song.


    Eventually Alyssa and Doug ended up intentionally isolated on an old houseboat in rural Louisiana where the Mississippi spills into the Atchafalaya swamp. There, The Grahams prolifically stockpiled songs, enjoyed the simplicity of living off the grid, and for a spell, invited onboard friends and musicians including their longtime collaborator Bryan McCann, a wordsmith who aids with lyrical inspiration. Yet perhaps the biggest inspiration on Riverman's Daughter was Doug's own mother, Gigi, the matriarch of the Graham family clan, and a true fan of the duo who had been diagnosed with cancer earlier that year. As her condition worsened, the Grahams packed up their guitars and newly minted collection of songs to become Gigi's angel band, and played by her side until she passed away.


    As recording of the new album began, The Grahams found a true kindred spirit in Grammy-winning producer Malcolm Burn, who brought a magical touch and inspired ideas into the studio. It was Burn's idea to record both Alyssa and Doug's parts live to tape without the assistance of headphones or isolation -- in the way they were written. This process gives the album a natural aura that harkens back to an era when this practice was commonplace. Along the same lines, The Grahams chose to record the album in Nashville, the longtime epicenter of country music. While the album's foundation is simple and acoustic, The Grahams are backed on a few tracks by stellar accompaniment including the Grammy-nominated North Mississippi Allstars. Along with the title song the album is highlighted by the 70's country rock flavored Carrying The Torch, the spirited traditional vibe of The Piney River, and the riveting upbeat barn dance playfulness of Revival Time.


    Ultimately, the album is a winning culmination of The Grahams' long journey into the heart of America, the inspiration they derived from immersion into classic American music, and the natural and honest talent they have for bringing forth a modern musical idiom steeped in tradition.

    The Battle Of Los Angeles

    Ranked 426/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Import

    Remastered


    After the success of Rage Against The Machine's eponymous debut LP and follow-up 'Evil Empire´ this third album is another hard-hitting collection of songs full of political and social consciousness. With their catchy, yet raw heavy riffs and grooves they succeeded to release another album with actual hitsingles ('Guerilla Radio' and 'Testify' ). However, it proved their last album full of original material; the follow-ups contained either covers (Renegades) or live-performances. With Battle of Los Angeles, the ´triple treat´ was completed.


    Rolling Stone Magazine ranked the album at no. 423 in their 500 Greatest Albums Ever list. After several musical excursions by all members, the original Rage Against The Machine line-up performed live on various occasions in 2007, but a new studio album has yet to see the light.
    Like the first 2 Rage Against The Machine albums, this LP is re-issued on 180 grams vinyl.

    Pieces of Eight (Out Of Stock)

    The legendary rock superstars Styx continued their arena rock assault in 1978 with their multi-platinum favorite Pieces Of Eight. As a second conceptual album following the equally successful The Grand Illusion, Pieces Of Eight would go on to be one of the more defining moments in the bands extensive catalog of classic rock masterpieces.


    Filled with Dennis DeYoung, Tommy Shaw and James Young compositions, the colossal 10-track album was an exciting listen for the fans and would continue to be a much heralded album for decades, truly standing the test of time.


    Rockers like Tommy Shaws Renegade and Blue Collar Man, plus Dennis DeYoungs Pieces Of Eight and Lords Of The Ring enhanced their prog-rock sounds to new heights as the rock and pop music buyers were thrilled to hear these epic sounding tunes. More power tracks like Queen Of Spades, Sing For The Day and James Youngs opener Great White Hope made the Pieces Of Eight album so intriguing that rock radio programmers had no issue with playing entire sides of the album without interruption on a regular basis.
