    ...Like Clockwork Deluxe Edition

    Limited Edition Ultrathick Cover, High Quality Vinyl Pressed At Pallas In Europe, And Includes A 20 Page 12x12 Book.


    The first album in 6 years from JOSHUA HOMME, TROY VAN
    LEEUWEN, MICHAEL SHUMAN, DEAN FERTITA, plus...for the recording, the return of Songs For The Deaf members, DAVE GROHL on drums, NICK OLIVERI and MARK LANEGAN


    Plus performances by SIR ELTON JOHN, TRENT REZNOR, ALEX TURNER (Arctic Monkeys), JAKE SHEARS (Scissor Sisters)

    Recorded by MARK RANKIN (Adele, "Rolling In The Deep")


    For their first album in six years, Joshua Homme's
    mighty Queens Of The Stone Age called back classic
    members Dave Grohl and Joey Castillo on drums,
    and Nick Oliveri and Mark Lanegan on vocals. In
    addition, some big names came in to perform:
    Elton John, Trent Reznor, Alex Turner (Arctic
    Monkeys), Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters), James
    Lavelle (U.N.K.L.E.) and more. Of course the current
    lineup of Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman and
    Dean Fertita also feature throughout.


    ...Like Clockwork contains Homme's most intense,
    personal and beautiful songwriting to date. While
    the thunder of Queens past is still evident (especially
    in lead single "My God Is The Sun") there are a
    number of gorgeous ballads - meditations on time
    passing, the struggle to create art, and the nearness
    of mortality.


    The music lives up to the album's lyrical and
    conceptual ambitions, with some of Homme's finest
    guitar work to date, at times recalling past greats
    such as Brian May or George Harrison, at other times
    uniquely his own. The rhythm section starts and
    stops on a dime, and in some of the more complex
    songs, the ensemble playing is virtuosic - but never
    sterile.


    The striking album artwork, imagery and intro
    animations are by young British artist Boneface,
    working closely with Homme.

    Hell Bent For Letters

    Alternative Tentacles tosses our well-worn thinking cap into the no-holds-barred, no-child-left-behind ring of Educore with Hell Bent for Letters, the latest outing by Seattle's BLOODHAG. Formed in 1995 to stimulate a communion between literacy and punk/metal, BLOODHAG boasts a lineup of noted science fiction authors Prof. J. B. Stratton, Dr. J. M. McNulty, Sir Zachary Orgel and the shadowy occultist Master Brent Carpenter. They created the genre of Edu-core and operate under the motto Th e faster you go deaf, the more time you have to read.


    While BLOODHAG's minute-long songs have the common theme of esteemed authors such as George Orwell and Philip K. Dick--and their live shows include between-song mini-lectures as well as pelting of the audience with books--the music counters with the blunt force of bands like BRUJERIA, PANTERA, SEPULTURA, etc.


    It's open to debate whether Edu-core can actually pummel literary history into the hungry minds of head-banging youth, but we certainly can't blame BLOODHAG for trying to bridge the gap between death metal tombs and Pulizerwilling tomes or the beer-soaked venues and pristine libraries (yes, they really tour public libraries).


    With their neckties and pocket protectors cocked and loaded, BLOODHAG is ready to stave off the dumbing down of America. So, invest in the leaders of tomorrow! Buy Hell Bent for Letters today!


    Glorifyingly hooked on demonics, they make some of the heaviest, snuggie underwear-soiling sounds this side of SPAZZ and BRUJERIA, while mixing in some Reading Rainbow, -Thrasher Magazine


    Note to bands: Always play before BLOODHAG, never after them -Stroker Magazine


    Learning has never hurt this good! -Portland Mercury

    Phonography

    Phonography was lo-fi legend R. Stevie Moores first vinyl release only 100 copies were pressed in 1976. The album (including a slightly larger 1978 pressing) barely earned the artist lunch money. But Phonography has since become the cornerstone of the Do-It-Yourself movement, while establishing Moore as the Granddaddy of home recording. Both Rolling Stone and Spin have proclaimed it one of the most influential independent releases of the past 50 years. Phonography was recorded by a self-taught control-freak, using cheap, malfunctioning analog equipment. Robert Steven Moore was born in 1952, in Nashville. His dad, veteran bassist/producer Bob Moore, taxied between sessions for major stars (including Elvis Presley). But Stevie preferred Brit Invasion, Zappa, Brian Wilsons idiosyncratic arrangements, and outliers like the Shaggs. At the urging of his supportive uncle, Harry Palmer, he moved to New Jersey in 1976.


    The Phonography material was recorded by this one-man virtual band at home between 1974 and 1976 with a pair of analog open-reel stereo decks and no multi-tracking equipment. Moore built songs starting with a rhythm track (e.g., played on drums, furniture, or boxes), upon which he layered instrumental and vocal tracks in a primitive sound-on-sound technique. Multiple generations of sound caused frequency loss and sonic distortion the embodiment of lo-fi but these are charming artifacts that dont obscure the brilliance of the compositions and Moores masterful music eccentricities. Moore and Palmer culled the top-tier songs, which were interspersed with spoken word, audio veritÉ, and radio snippets to create a program effect. The song styles were eclectic, reflecting Stevies omnivorous music appetite: hard rock, sweet ballads, Britpop, guitar raves, glam, and Zappa-esque weirdness. The album laid the foundation for Moores four-decade underground career.


    He has self-released hundreds of albums on each successive eras format du jour (cassette, LP, CD, digital download). Hes had vinyl and CD compilations produced worldwide on two dozen indie labels. For a songwriter with a massive catalog of prime material, Moores revenue stream has barely afforded him the luxury of replacing gear plagued by worn-out switches. Yet most of the surviving labels who turned deaf ears to R. Stevie Moore are now, like him, struggling to make a buck on their catalogs. Their corner-office execs come and go. R. Stevie Moore is still here. And Phonography is back.

    Life/Thrills

    Acting as a respite from the celebrated strains of modern Australian
    underground music, Lower Plenty manage a deconstruction of folk
    music like none other: unsettled, unforgiving, unconcerned with
    what came before or what's to follow. Acoustic guitars shuffle in
    and out of phase with one another, double-tracked vocals hover
    above in careful meter, brushed snare rattles the very frame of their
    sound, and then everything shifts again, and again. Comfort's not
    long here, though beauty is maintained; melodies start sweet but
    turn inward, wane nostalgic and wax without resolve. Lyrics pawn
    regret out of the ordinary, drifting in and out of your consciousness
    like something heard in passing and reconstituted in a dream. Their
    sound demands your attention, to the point where gloved, spectral
    hands could very easily jump out of their music and grab you by the
    sides of your head.


    Life/Thrills is the Melbourne group's third full-length, and their
    collective experience (members play in a host of other bands, not
    limited to Total Control, The UV Race, Exhaustion, Deaf Wish and
    Dick Diver) will leave you thoroughly unprepared for the beautiful
    confusion suggested by these ten songs, which seem to have the
    power of slowing and even stopping time. Suitable comparisons to
    this music are as disparate as early Cat Power, Arab Strap, the
    Shrimper roster ca. 1992, the Sun City Girls, and the late '60s/early
    '70s output of the Red Crayola, but as with much truly original
    music, Lower Plenty resists direct comparison and defies
    expectation. Their shambling, discordant presence will relieve you
    of any preconceptions - this is one best experienced alone, as the
    sun fades into the horizon for the night.

    Sieg Howdy!

    Fucking AWESOME. Jello and the Melvins #2. Buy It.
    What, you need more reasons? Jello Biafra and the Melvins are musical pranksters united for a common cause - to detonate your brain with some of the most twisted rock anthems ever crafted!


    Starting off album #2 with a heavier-than-life version of the Alice Cooper cult classic, Halo of Flies, an intricate tune that alternately slithers and crushes, the band then proceed to treat us to a completely different extended take of their tune The Lighter Side of Global Terrorism (Jello's Hawkwind influence showed through when he asked the Melvins to create a take on the song similar to their cover of Youth of America by The Wipers). With the first two harrowing tracks clocking in at over fifteen minutes -this is not what you'd expect from a Jello record - steering into a more Melvinoid direction, but remaining distinctly separate from anything easily definable - far from a mishmash or outtakes collection, even the Jelvins were surprised at how well Sieg Howdy! flowed as an album.


    Through the course of the album the band (yes, they sound like a proper band, not a project!) erupts with colors of its respective players in turns. Biafra's spleen-venting rants Voted off the Island and Those Dumb Punk Kids (Will Buy Anything) are amongst his most acerbic (not to mention insightful!), and the Melvins' cathartic drum and guitar workouts pummel brilliantly through Lessons in What Not to Become and the septic all bass-chug of Kevin Rutmanis (making his final appearance on vinyl with the Melvins on this album) and Buzzo that anchors Wholly Buy Bull.


    Of course, the cherry on top is Jello and the lads ripping through a new, updated version of Kalifornia Über Alles - as sung by the GropenfÜhrer himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger! With Jello's unmistakable wit and even more distinctive punk-rock croon fully intact, it's a breath of fresh air to hear a live Jello classic sound the way it was intended to for a change!


    The album's remaining remixed tracks serve to deepen the impression that what has been created throughout the course of this collaboration is the work of a band - A band whose songs have enough depth to remain interesting in new and sonic environs. Dalek's chilling reworking of Dawn of the Locusts brings the song into a completely different light, and Al Jourgensen's (Ministry) take on Enchanted Thoughtfist is so cold and almost new-wave-y that it works brilliantly. The tone of the track reaches waaay back into the Ministry back catalog, surprising even Al himself! Then the fresh new tag-team Deaf Nephews (Dale Crover and Toshi, the album's engineer) reshape Caped Crusader into a disturbing cartoon version of itself to round out the record. The fact that these songs are open to this kind of interpretation, and that these interpretations work so well is a testament to the quality with which they were crafted in the first place.


    Once again, the band is joined by Adam Jones from Tool on guitar for over half the tracks, and this time around, the stunning artwork is provided by none other than Camille Rose Garcia! 27 minutes of new and never before heard Jello Biafra and the Melvins and 17 minutes of remixed weirdness from the group's friends has created a record that surpasses its predecessor in sheer sonic audacity and is an extremely satisfying listen in its own right. Whether you missed the boat the first time around, or you couldn't get enough of Never Breathe What You Can't See, it's time to stand up, put your right hand over your heart, extend that middle finger, and say it loud - say it proud - SEIG HOWDY!

    Get The Knack


    One of the Most Instantly Successful and Highest-Selling Debut Albums in History: The Knack's Attitudinal Get the Knack Loaded With Power Pop, Catchy Hooks, Keen Melodies, and My Sharona


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Pressed at RTI, and Strictly Limited to 3000 Numbered Copies: Mobile Fidelity 180g LP of Get the Knack Teems with Abundant Energy


    Most everyone knows The Knack's Get the Knack because of the ubiquitous smash My Sharona, a contagious hit that still plays countless times everyday on radio stations nationwide. But the appeal and significance of the Los Angeles quartet's 1979 debut extend far beyond the career-making single. Loaded with tight power pop, hummable hooks, blunt lyrics, and precision playing, the controversy-igniting Get the Knack resonates with an ageless freshness that's influenced everyone from Kurt Cobain to modern indie artists such as the Mountain Goats.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3000 numbered copies, Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP of Get the Knack brings the record's urgent harmonies, keen melodies, bell-clear tones, and snapping percussion out of the shadows and into the limelight. Graced with large-scale frequency extension and ample separation, the Knack's feisty music now teems with added energy, body, and immediacy. Absent the dynamic compression that squelched previous reissues, this numbered limited-edition audiophile analog version blossoms with detail, openness, and brashness. A guilty pleasure to some and new-wave classic to many others, Get the Knack is so attitudinal it spawned one of the industry's most famous backlashes.


    Released by Capitol Records after the Knack courted a dozen other offers, the 12-track set remains one of the most instantaneously successful debuts ever made. Aided by tongue-in-cheek marketing, a sly cover-art reference to the Beatles' Meet the Beatles, and Mack Truck-sized refrains that stick in your head for hours, Get the Knack went gold in days and, to date, has sold more than five million copies. The meteoric rise didn't sit well with detractors committed to ripping apart the band for its perceived arrogance (members refused to sit for interviews) and alleged misogynist stance. Needless to say, the boycotting campaigns fell on deaf ears.


    Holding down the top of the singles chart for six weeks, and the eventual number-one single on the year-end 1979 chart, My Sharona alone cemented the Knack's position in history. Written by lead singer and guitarist Doug Fieger about his lust for the then-underage 17-year-old Sharona Alperin, who ultimately became his fiancÉe, the anthem's suggestive themes carry throughout the record. Straightforward in its sleaziness and sexuality, Get the Knack pulls no punches about teenage frustrations, boy-girl one-upsmanship, sticky sweet romance, and unrequited passions for the opposite sex.


    Teasing, mischievous tracks such as (She's So) Selfish connect with Bo Diddley-inspired riffs and crude, hormonally charged lines that split the difference between manipulation, nastiness, and arousal. The Top 15 hit Good Girls Don't similarly confronts the pent-up carnal desires and libidinous emotions shared by youth of all generations, while That's What the Little Girls Do functions as a sly response. Your Number or Your Name dabbles in related subject matter, with sensitivity and hopefulness added for good measure. It's a perfect mix of agony and ecstasy, fear and confidence.


    Shot-through with yearning, every song bursts forth with undeniable catchiness, firecracker release, and sassy style - an approach Rolling Stone rightly says finds the band [winding] itself tighter than a hot pair of disco jeans, then [doing] its best to hold to that energy until its time to explode.

    Moody Coup

    Co La is the primary project of musician and producer Matt Papich, whose
    explorations of sample-based electronic music have culminated in Moody
    Coup.


    The emotional palette of Moody Coup, Papich's second album and rst for
    Software Recording Co., is more complex than its exuberant predecessor
    Daydream Repeater (NNA Tapes 2011). Where that record's relentlessly
    bucolic tone drew from the saccharine core of reggae, exotica, and 60s girl
    groups, the bedrock of Moody Coup is elusive and abstract.
    The various genre coinages that have been tagged to Co La's music before
    - new exotica, Avant-luxury, furniture music, etc. - fail to accommodate the
    brainier obsessions behind Moody Coup's genesis. A new brand of alchemy
    occurs in the album, where cryptic sources are enhanced and embellished
    to a point of transcendence. This departure is the brilliant process o of Co
    La's unpredictable electronic music.


    Highlights of Moody Coup include Remarkable Features, which
    consolidates the prior seismic scope of Daydream Repeater into a dance
    oor standout. Deaf Christian transforms a Neil Sedaka doo-wopper into
    a mesmerizingly dark House cut, complete with synth chasms and haunting
    voice chants (supplied here and throughout the record by Angel
    Deradoorian). The meticulously crafted Suspicious ventures into more
    calming pastures -- an extra dimensional, dubbed-out take on the Psychic
    TV gem by the same name.


    At the outset of Moody Coup, Sukiyaki (To Die For) melodically alludes
    to the Kyu Sakamoto song Sukiyaki." The original was penned as a
    mournful assessment of post-war Japan's relationship to the US, albeit
    dressed by Sakamoto as a love song. Ironically, Sukiyaki became a hit
    oversees in the US and was later covered by A Taste of Honey. Rather than
    translating the lyrics, A Taste of Honey set new words to the original
    melody. (Stranger still, the word Sukiyaki itself refers to a Japanese hot
    dish.)


    It's important to note that the wide range of reference sources does not
    serve Moody Coup as a supercial demonstration of Papich's eclectic taste.
    Instead, all of the micro pieces function mosaically, creating an impression
    at a macro level that is extremely potent as music as well as concept. Co
    La's intellectual obsessions are rooted in questions about how music is
    dilated by the cultures who created it and the power structures that shape
    those cultures (see Sukiyaki), while his musical obsessions are always
    rooted in the sensual, the beautiful and the immediate.


    Papich describes the working Co La method on Moody Coup as
    "employing the hegemony of delete." He likes to be interrupted, and is
    fond of working in places where domestic concerns are on equal terms with
    studio practice. Much of Moody Coup was made in the kitchen of Papich's
    Baltimore home -- a place where he describes having the "best
    interruptions." Assistant to Papich's production was friend Joe Williams,
    who programmed and performed all synths. Tracks were additionally
    consolidated from eld recordings, samples and composed in Ableton Live
    and mixed in Brooklyn at Gary's Electric Studio, located at the Software HQ.

    All Summer Long (Mono)

    33 1/3 RPM Mono Mixes Created Under Brian Wilson's Supervision


    Audio Production - Mark Linett


    For Brother Records - Elliott Lott


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio, Most From The Original Master Tapes Or Best Sources Available


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    To meet the standards of Analogue Productions, our Beach Boys album reissues had a mission to achieve: Present the band's music the way that Brian Wilson - famed co-founder, songwriter and arranger - intended. Mono mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California crew rose to fame! And we've got 'em!


    For the early part of the Beach Boys career, all of their singles were mixed and mastered and released only in the mono format - they didn't release a single in stereo until 1968. In those days, hits were made on AM radio in mono. And the mono of those times worked well for Wilson, who suffers from partial deafness. Still, apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today! was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.


    Bottom line, the mono mixes were where Brian Wilson paid intense attention, and the dedication paid off!


    We've taken 10 of the most classic, best-sounding Beach Boy titles ever and restored them to their mono glory!


    But there's no disputing that the close harmonies and one-of-a-kind rhythms of hits like "Surfer Girl," "In My Room," "Little Deuce Coupe" and more lend themselves naturally to stereo. So we've got your 2-channel needs covered with prime stereo mix versions as well.


    Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in old school Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time honored favorites shine brighter than the originals!


    All Summer Long was notable not only for racheting up the Beach Boys' standards and essentially bidding farewell to the surf songs that inspired both their name and reputation, but also for going toe-to-toe with one of rock's most explosive phenomena - Beatlemania - and coming away victorious, with the single 'I Get Around' soaring to No. 1 in the spring of 1964. Essentially another loose concept record (revolving around the innocent hedonistic pursuits of an idyllic SoCal summer) that takes its cue from the effervescent title track, it also documents Brian's restless creativity pushing the band toward its performing peak. - Amazon.com

    Surfin' Safari (Mono)

    33 1/3 RPM Mono Mixes Created Under Brian Wilson's Supervision


    Audio Production - Mark Linett


    For Brother Records - Elliott Lott


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio, Most From The Original Master Tapes Or Best Sources Available


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    To meet the standards of Analogue Productions, our Beach Boys album reissues had a mission to achieve: Present the band's music the way that Brian Wilson - famed co-founder, songwriter and arranger - intended. Mono mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California crew rose to fame! And we've got 'em!


    For the early part of the Beach Boys career, all of their singles were mixed and mastered and released only in the mono format - they didn't release a single in stereo until 1968. in those days, hits were made on AM radio in mono. And the mono of those times worked well for Wilson, who suffers from partial deafness. Still, apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.


    Bottom line, the mono mixes were where Brian Wilson paid intense attention, and the dedication paid off!


    We've taken 10 of the most classic, best-sounding Beach Boy titles ever and restored them to their mono glory!


    But there's no disputing that the close harmonies and one-of-a-kind rhythms of hits like "Surfer Girl," "In My Room," "Little Deuce Coupe" and more lend themselves naturally to stereo. So we've got your 2-channel needs covered with prime stereo mix versions as well.


    Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in old school Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time honored favorites shine brighter than the originals!


    With this quiet QRP pressing of Surfin' Safari you'll enjoy the smash hit title cut as well as 409,Summertime Blues and more as the fledgling Beach Boys proudly display their garage band roots in this, their debut album for Capitol Records.


    Their classic songs epitomize the spirit of the California lifestyle and The Beach Boys have become an American icon to a worldwide audience. The Beach Boys' first hit Surfin' (1961) launched a string of chart-topping songs that spans nearly forty years and includes eternal anthems of American youth: Surfin' USA, Surfer Girl, Fun, Fun, Fun, I Get Around, California Girls, Help Me Rhonda, Barbara Ann, Good Vibrations, Wouldn't It Be Nice, Rock and Roll Music, Kokomo and more.


    Their chart success alone would have earned The Beach Boys their spot in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (they were inducted in 1988), not to mention 32 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards and worldwide sales estimated at more than 100 million. But The Beach Boys' story is one of not only commercial but also artistic success. Their unique blend of harmonies, musical arrangements and timeless lyrics still place the music of The Beach Boys among the All-Time Favorites of today's music critics. As an example, VH-1 named Pet Sounds as the No. 3 album in the Top 100 Albums in Rock 'n' Roll History, as judged in a poll of musicians, executives and journalists. The Beach Boys were honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards, receiving The Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy.

    Shut Down Vol 2 (Mono)

    33 1/3 RPM Mono Mixes Created Under Brian Wilson's Supervision

Still, apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today! was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.


    The stereo editions of Surfin' USA, Surfer Girl, Little Deuce Coupe, Shut Down Vol. 2, All Summer Long, Beach Boys Christmas Album and Beach Boys Concert were all mixed in stereo by their own preferred engineer, Chuck Britz, ostensibly under the group's supervision.


    Brian may or may not have been present for those mixing sessions - evidence suggests that he trusted Chuck's skills enough to let him prepare those mixes on his own - but the group held onto their multitrack tapes and delivered stereo masters to Capitol, rather than allowing Capitol to prepare their own stereo versions. Later, when Brian was only delivering mono masters, Capitol would prepare the Duophonic pseudo stereo editions for the stereo market, says Alan Boyd, producer and Beach Boys' archivist.


    All of the newer stereo mixes on these remastered albums (The Beach Boys Today!, Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!), The Beach Boys' Party, Pet Sounds and Smiley Smile) were all done by Mark Linett on behalf of the Beach Boys.

    The first Shut Down was a hugely successful Capitol Records Various Artists compilation LP that had included a pair of Beach Boys tracks. Whereas their previous album Little Deuce Coupe had been a full-on car themed concept album, the Beach Boys' Shut Down Volume 2 was pretty much evenly split between songs with car themes and various high school and summertime-themed tunes. The album sought to further the Beach Boys beyond its ironic sea-and-sun fetish (none but Dennis Wilson ever surfed) into the burgeoning hot-rod subculture. ... the high points remain nothing short of spectacular, including the Mike Love-propelled 'Fun, Fun, Fun,' Wilson's knowing nod to Phil Spector, 'Don't Worry Baby,' and the (hit) 'The Warmth of the Sun.' - Amazon.com

    Surfer Girl, the Beach Boys' third album for Capitol Records, was the first produced by Brian Wilson on his own (the previous two, Surfin Safari and Surfin Usa (Mono & Stereo Remasters), were co-produced by the late Capitol A&R man, Nik Venet). This album was The Boys' first really great effort; there's not a bad track in the lot, including the title song, Catch A Wave, In My Room, Hawaii, Our Car Club, Little Deuce Coupe, Your Summer Dream, and more.
