Ferment
Released on 22/03/10. Their epic debut single for Font Black Metallic brought them attention and praise from the press and fans alike. It also became their biggest hit in the States making the top ten in the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and is still name checked now as indie classic of the early 90's. The band followed this with two more singles, Balloon and I Want To Touch You before releasing their debut album Ferment in mid-1992. The album was produced by Talk Talk's Tim Friese-Greene who continued to produce and help them before they split in 2000. This long overdue and welcome reissue includes newly written sleeve notes by journalist and early champion of the band, Jack Rabid from Big Takeover magazine and 6 additional bonus tracks chosen by the band. These being the limited edition 2,000 only pressing of the 30 Century Man E.P., the non-album single Balloon and live fan favourite Intravenous which fans have been trying to get hold of for years. The band went on to release four more albums before calling it a day. Rob Dickinson has since released a solo album for Universal, Fresh Wine For The Horse, while Neil Sims and Brian Futter went on to form 50ft Monster. Our Price: £9.95

Heaven Is Waiting
The Danse Society were a very special band formed in the early 1980’s and hailed from the Goth heartland of Yorkshire. After their highly regarded album "Seduction" on their own label Society Records, the band signed to Arista Records and released this the excellent "Heaven Is Waiting" album. It's their most complete and accomplished album. During the eighties, the Danse Society created a reputation for lush and atmospheric sounds that separated them from the rest of the gothic scene at the time. The innovative and creative use of keyboards was the element gave the band their distinctive sound. This 15 track collection includes the original UK LP version from 1984 and 4 bonus tracks. The cult singles "2000 Light Years From Home" and "Heaven Is Waiting" are featured and 3 of the bonus tracks are taken from the original cassette version of the album. The CD features the original ‘Heaven Is Waiting’ LP cover along with the other sleeves from the Society Records period. Sleeve notes have been written by Danse Society keyboardist, Lyndon Scarfe and also included is a complete discography of the band. Our Price: £9.95

All Tomorrows Parties - Nico Live
One of the most fascinating figures of rock's fringes, Nico hobnobbed, worked, and was romantically linked with an incredible assortment of the most legendary entertainers of the '60s. Nico first rose to fame as a European supermodel, also landing a bit part in Fellini's ‘La Dolce Vita’ film. In the mid-1960's she moved to New York, where Andy Warhol installed her as a vestigial presence and occasional lead singer for the Velvet Underground. The band never really accepted her as a bona fide member and she departed in 1967, but not before contributing unforgettable deadpan vocals to three of the songs on their classic 1967 debut album. Nico embarked on a solo career, recording folk-rock-flavored songs for her debut Chelsea Girl album with assistance from Jackson Browne, Lou Reed, and John Cale. Her 1969 follow-up, The Marble Index, was a dramatic departure that unveiled her doom-laden, gothic persona, produced by Cale and prominently featuring her deep vocals, impenetrable lyrics, and ghostly harmonium. Her subsequent '70s albums explored much the same territory, with assistance from Cale and influential art rockers like Brian Eno. She fought a constant struggle with a massive drug habit and tangled personal life and eventually died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Ibiza in 1988. The original Goth rocker, Nico's albums are demanding and bleak, but map a unique and starkly powerful vision that has become more influential with age. A brand new, previously unreleased double-album featuring 2 shows from one of the great all-time rock music icons - Nico. All Tomorrow's Parties" features extremely rare material from two shows Nico played in the UK in the early 1980's. Our Price: £9.95
