Disc 3, “Rarities 1981-84” does exactly what it says on the tin! From non LP singles like ‘Stab The Judge’, ‘Give Us A Future’ (No.28), ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’ (No.11) and ‘Visions Of Angels’ (No.39) through to rare early demos PLUS three previously unreleased studio demos of tracks intended for the scrapped third album.Booklet contains detailed liner notes plus pictures of all the relevant sleeves as well as many unpublished photos, clippings, memorabilia, etc…
The band are still going to this very day and are a regular at the many Punk Festivals across the globe, including Rebellion in the UK and Punk N Disorderly in Germany
This 4 CD 64 track clamshell box set covers the albums issued by Punk legends Stiff Little Fingers between 1991 and 1997.
Disc 1 is the band’s ‘comeback’ studio album “Flags And Emblems”. It was the first to feature ex-Jam bassist Bruce Foxton. Includes the single ‘Beirut Moon’. The band’s yearly St. Patrick’s Day show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands is always sold out and Disc 2 features one of the first they ever did. This is the last release to feature original guitarist Henry Cluney. 1994’s “Get A Life” album is Disc 3 and saw the band down to a trio of Jake Burns, Bruce Foxton and Dolphin Taylor. Includes the singles ‘Harp’ and ‘Can’t Believe In You’ and now comes with three ‘unplugged’ versions of well-known tracks from their early days. The final disc is 1997’s “Tinderbox” album, now restored to its original sleeve.
Vocalist Jake Burns has provided liner notes covering this period in the band’s career whilst the booklet contains rare clippings and memorabilia as well as pictures of all relevant releases.
Following on from the success of our first 999 box – “The Albums 1977-80” (AHOYBX 354) – we present a further four albums from one of the founding fathers of the whole Punk Rock movement.
Concentrating on the years 1987-2007 this 4 disc clam shell box contains 61 tracks. Disc 1 is the band’s first official full length live album “Lust Power And Money”. Recorded at the legendary Klub Foot in London it has a track listing that reads like a “Greatest Hits Live”, with classics such as ‘Nasty Nasty’, ‘Emergency’ and ‘Homicide’. The second disc features 1993’s ‘comeback’ album “You Us It!” which saw the addition of new member Arturo Bassick, formerly of The Lurkers. Disc 3 is the “Takeover” album which was originally released in 1997 by seminal Indie label Abstract Records. The final disc is 2007’s “Death In Soho” LP which features the single ‘Gimme The World’ and is – at present – the
last studio album issued by the band.
The 20 page booklet contains in-depth liner notes, pictures of all relevant sleeves plus memorabilia and clippings from the era.
Voted by the journalists of “Terrorizer” magazine as the most important Punk album of all time, this was the first full length LP from UK Hardcore Punk band Discharge and it is rightly declared a classic.
A No.40 National Chart hit when first released in 1982 as well spending four months in the Indie Chart, peaking at No.2.
The 11 bonus tracks include the Indie Chart hits ‘Never Again’ (No.3), ‘State Violence State Control’ (No.4) and ‘Warning’ (No.6).
Following on from the success of “The Albums 1979-82” (WAHOYBX353) we present a second box of Angelic Upstarts albums covering 1983 to 1991.
Disc 1 is the Indie Chart hit “Reason Why?” album which now comes with ten bonus tracks. Featured are the singles ‘Woman In Disguise’, ‘Solidarity’ and ‘Not Just A Name’. The second disc is 1984’s “Last Tango In Moscow” LP which again comes with ten bonus tracks, mainly rare studio demos. Includes the Indie Chart hit single ‘Machine Gun Kelly’. “Live In Yugoslavia” is Disc 3 and reads like a “Greatest Hits Live” as it includes many of the band’s chart hits such as ‘Teenage Warning’, ‘Never Had Nothing’ and ‘I’m An Upstart’. Disc 4 is 1985’s “Power Of The Press” album which now comes with the bonus of the highly controversial single ‘Brighton Bomb’. The fifth disc is another controversial album, “Blood On The Terraces” which incurred the wrath of MP’s and tabloid newspapers when originally released in 1987. The final disc is the rare 1991 album “Bombed Out” which saw original guitarist Mond reunited with vocalist Mensi for the first time in nearly a decade. Six discs and 100 tracks all housed in a sturdy clam shell box. The booklet features pictures of all relevant sleeves, liner notes, news clippings and many previously unpublished photos.
