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

Everythings Groovy
Fronted by the flamboyant Mary Mary the band quickly became key players in the so-called 'grebo' scene which mixed traditional rock structures with psychedelia and dance. The Bykers received strong music press support for their first two singles on the In Tape label, 'Everything's Groovy' and 'Nosedive Karma.' Both were big independent chart hits staying in the charts for a combined total of 53 weeks. The main interest in both records was their driving hip-hop beat married to psychedelic guitars and rockist lyrics which was unheard of in the world of indie records at the time. The Bykers eventually disintegrated into increasing chaos as their career went on but they left an important legacy which is now on CD for the first time. This 16 track CD contains all the tracks from the first two singles plus additional tracks that have been hidden in the vaults for the past few years. Also included is a promotional video of "Everythings Groovy" as a bonus enhanced track. Our Price: £9.95

The Story So Far
Released 27/11/08. The Mo-dettes were NEVER a Mod band can we just clear that up? Instead, they were formed as part of the punk explosion, with former members having been part of the London squat community, numbering Joe Strummer and Sid Vicious among their housemates. Indeed, the genesis of the band came about while drummer June Miles-Kingston and guitarist Kate Corris were assisting Malcolm McLaren and Julien Temple on the set of The Great Rock ’n’ Roll Swindle. All this and more is explored in the accompanying booklet, in which both Kate and June talk at length about their time with the Mo-dettes. So we get the inside story on encountering rednecks in the American south, facing equally patronising attitudes in the studio and finally, what to do when your roadie wants to date your singer. The band also featured Jane Crockford on bass famous for the punk cannibalism incident when she bit the ear of Shane McGowan at a Clash gig and Swiss singer Ramona. 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
