    Black Butterfly


    Limited Edition Of 1,000 Individually Numbered Copies On 180 Gram Solid Gold Colored Vinyl


    Steve Walsh is known for his work as the frontman of the progressive rock band Kansas, from which he retired in 2014. On his new solo album Black Butterfly the influences from his past are brought together in some compact rock songs. Steve wrote the 14 songs of the album together with the Swedish musician Tommy Denander and the Christian rocker Jerome Mazza takes the lead vocals on three songs. The music goes from the sounds of Kansas (The Piper) to the beats of Warsaw and the political news on Billy Carbone Dead. Black Butterfly is a wonderful return to Walsh' studio work.


    Whoever speaks out the name of Steve Walsh will directly think about the massive worldwide success of the American rock band Kansas. He was the lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist on their well-received albums Leftoverture and Point of Know Return as well as on their single hits Carry On Wayward Son and Dust in the Wind. Their progressive songs were interspersed with rock ballads and attracted a massive following.

    Two For The Show

    Clear Vinyl


    Freaks of Nature - the album that saved Kansas. After a seven-year dry spell of no new material, they hit with this thunderbolt in 1995! The bands 12th studio album. Amazing and refreshing, Freaks of Nature tantalizes all the senses, mainly due to the intensity of the music and the seriousness of the lyrics. All of its songs are strong, effective and fascinating. The darkness of this album is balanced by the pure emotion of the music. The frankness and honesty of the lyrics are a testament to the growth and healing that Steve Walsh was going through at the time. Ragsdale's intensity pulls the whole thing together.

    Point of Know Return

    Import

    Back in 1977, the LP Point Of Know Return marked the commercial peak of Kansas. The Progressive Rock band had experienced tremendous success with their previous release (1976's Leftoverture) and were no longer starving for a hit, yet the sessions for their fifth album were tense. Steve Walsh briefly left the group in the middle of these sessions. Nevertheless, the LP turned out an even bigger success for the band than its predecessor. It would be their highest charting record and with four million copies sold, it was certified Quadruple Platinum by the RIAA.


    The tour to support the album brought them to huge venues such as New York's Madison Square Garden and the LA Forum, with the tour book including an essay written by Rolling Stone contributor Cameron Crowe. The band became a staple on FM radio at this point, and during this period was one of the most popular rock acts in the country. "Dust In The Wind" became the hit single off of the album.

    Signal Red is a brand new band from the UK and features two very respected musicians, namely Guitarist Steve Grocott (Ten) and Vocalist Lee Small (Phenomena / Shy / Lionheart). The collaboration first came together in February 2013 when Steve was at a loose end. He had been in a band previously called Sevendayz which had recently folded. Following he contacted Lee as he had heard so much about him, mainly from the self-titled SHY album that appeared in 2011. The two hit it off straight away and it seemed inevitable that an album would follow.Steve got caught up working with the UK band (Ten) as Gary Hughes asked him to be in the band's line-up for some shows and to feature on the new album, so the Signal Red production was halted for a while. Eventually, Steve's time freed up so he could once again concentrate on new material for the album and the whole thing has just progressed into a fantastic recording. Lee is a very soulful, melodic vocalist and has featured on 17 albums as lead vocalist and on many more that have featured him as a guest, Dante Fox and Magnum to name but two.


    This exciting new adventure is bound to cause a stir, and with Brian Anthony twiddling the knobs (Steve Walsh) then this is going to be an album people will be talking about. Lee came up with the title one day thinking that trying to get recognition for what you live and breathe for is like living under the radar. Well, they should not be living under it for much longer when this one hits the streets. This is a rock album that just begs to be heard and we are sure that you will like what you hear.

    Club Meds

    After a two year hiatus, an induction into fatherhood, and some time to regroup, two-time JUNO Award-winner Dan Mangan has returned under a new moniker, Dan Mangan + Blacksmith. The new name encompasses the spirit of the project's longstanding ensemble members joining the band from Vancouver's experimental music community, Kenton Loewen, Gordon Grdina, John Walsh (and often Jesse Zubot, JP carter and Tyson Naylor) with a communal sensibility that merits the marquee amendment.


    Produced by Colin Stewart and Dan Mangan, Club Meds at times evokes images of subtler American-underground innovators like Blonde Redhead or Steve Reich. At other moments, it hits emotional pay dirt reminiscent of British scene-survivors like Peter Gabriel or Radiohead. Blacksmith brings an unmistakable character to Club Meds; a stark glassy edge that swells and sways like a roaring ocean. Through a fog of analog feedback loops and synths, the band's performances breathe deeply and steadily like a dragon at rest.

    Live At St. Pancras Old Church

    In October 2013 Melora Creager and Daniel from Rasputina arrived in London to join us and multi-instrumentalist, Neil Walsh, on a small tour of English churches and halls. With only a day to practice we were all a little apprehensive as we unpacked our instruments and set up some amps in our kitchen but after a few moments as the strings, voices and guitars filled the room we knew the shows ahead were going to turn out just fine.


    Melora's and Daniel's cellos and Neil's viola provided new textures and direction to our old songs and it was a tour that left us very grateful for the opportunity to play with such talented friends, to attentive audiences in some spectacular, historical places.


    The last night of the tour was recorded in St Pancras Old Church, London and we will be releasing it as a limited edition LP album. The sleeve is hand-drawn and the record will be pressed on heavyweight vinyl.


    In the six years since Smoke Fairies first entered a recording studio, they have made three critically acclaimed albums, supported the likes of Bryan Ferry, Laura Marling, Seasick Steve and Richard Hawley, and were the first UK act to be flown to the states to record a single with Jack White for his Third Man Records label.


    Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire met at school in Chichester, West Sussex and have been inseperable ever since, travelling to tour their music across the world.

    international acclaim as one of the most electrifying and forceful live acts,
    touring widely and extensively, playing hundreds of shows each year around
    the world.


    Now, Alex Edkins (guitar, vocals), along with Hayden Menzies (drums), and
    Chris Slorach (bass) are set to unleash their highly-anticipated third
    full-length album, Strange Peace, an emphatic but artful hammer swing to
    the status quo.


    The best punk isn't an assault as much as it's a challenge - to what's
    normal, to what's comfortable, or simply to what's expected. Teetering on
    the edge of perpetual implosion," NPR wrote in their glowing review of
    METZ's 2015 second album, II.


    Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve
    Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming
    territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while
    capturing the notorious intensity of their live show. The trio continued to
    assemble the album (including home recordings, additional
    instrumentation) in their hometown, adding the finishing touches with
    longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh.


    Strange Peace isn't merely a collection of eleven uninhibited and urgent
    songs. It's also a kind of sonic venting, a truculent social commentary that
    bludgeons and provokes, excites and unsettles. With all the pleasurable
    tension and anxiety of a fever dream, Strange Peace is equal parts
    challenging and accessible. It is this implausible balancing act, moving
    from one end of the musical spectrum to the other, that only a band of
    METZ's power and capacity can maintain: discordant and melodic,
    powerful and controlled, meticulous and instinctive, subtle and complex,
    precise and reckless, wholehearted and merciless, brutal and optimistic,
    terrifying and fun.


    "Their whiplash of distortion is made with precision, a contained chaos.
    But you would never talk about them like that. Because METZ are not
    something you study or analyze," wrote Liisa Ladouceur in Exclaim! "They
    are something you feel: a transfer of energy, pure and simple." In other
    words: to feel something, fiercely and intensely, but together, not alone.
