  • EXPECTED - 2013.17

    Peter Buck of REM and Baseball Project fame grinding out a garage rocking cover of the Mummies evergreen hit "You Must Fight To Live On The Planet Of the Apes". Loose & raw - don't forget that Peter produced the Replacements "Let It Be" LP. The B side is a rolicking quasi political song keeping with the primate feel of things. Two songs about Monkeys on a limited one time pressing 7". Full color picture sleeve featuring photos of Peter in a Monkey mask and pajamas wandering the streets of Mexico. Limited one time pressing of 1000 copies.

    Cortona was born in the dirty gutters of Lyon in 2002 like a premature child armed to teeth. The band feeds its hits with the froth of the famous rebellious 77 punk and adjusts the kick towards modern sounds and nihilist determination. On stage, the band releases an explosive energy for an unbridled performance. The guitar riffs balance on a solid rhythmic basis and fill the lack of excitation of the audience and the needs for primitive sensations. After one album and two EPs, it is now time for a sequel. Cortona released this EP vinyl on the French Casbah Records label. Once again, the band uses its loud voice to express their gospel of urban craziness, fun, and clarity in absolute commotion.

    Limited to 500 copies on black wax, big centerholes, 300gr/m 3D cardboard sleeve with 3mm spine, printed 3D-glasses, artwork by Jens-O-Matic. There was a time in the heydays of Rock'n'Roll when Martians and aliens were all over the place in the world of music and the Beat-Invasion wasn't born yet, but Rock'n'Roll was at the end of its glorious days..Unfortunately this kind of music was long lost between all those pure Rock'n'Roll and Instro/Surfbands of todays circuit..... long lost until NOW!!! THE OUTTA SITES bring back the pounding sound of the "Martian Jive" which makes everybody out there smilin' and foot tappin'!

    Infernal Cakewalk is Mesa Cosa's first solid release after a limited (yet ravenously devoured) cassette. Pressed into 10 inches of sleek black vinyl, the ICW EP firstly offers seven of Mesa Cosa's most enigmatic fist-pumping garage songs from their huge oeuvre. Featuring the sing-a-long garage anthem Shoplifter, noise punk orgy Los Perros (The Dogs) and the 6(66) minute opus of fuzz, demonic chants and free saxophone bedlam boogie Diablo. Today prouldy released by Casbah Records, this compilation of outrageous hits includes two bonus tracks. Recorded in their dingy Melbourne living room by Nao Anzai (Rat vs. Possum/Nunchukka Superfly) packaged in a lush sleeve designed by CM Ruiz (Dead Ghosts, Davila 666) and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddie Current Suppression Ring). The Infernal Cakewalk EP captures Mesa Cosa's "the Stooges walk into a Tequila bar" live attitude in a "hey, we put out a record!" kind of way. Mesa Cosa are a six piece from everywhere between Mexico and Melbourne, Australia, that play an aggressive blend of noisy punk, garage rock and Mexican folk tunes. Led by a diminutive chilango from Mexico City, singing in both Spanish and English, Mesa Cosa mix their undying love of Mexican celebrations and dark symbols with their unashamed love for garage music and experimental noise. Mesa Cosa (only) play fun, energetic shows filled with dancing, mayhem, things breaking, people falling down, glasses smashing, amps failing and tambourine sacrifices to the party gods.

    An interesting outfit from SF, with the name taken from George Clinton's Funkadelic-era pre-show banter. Musically however they remind of '60s groups s.a. The Troggs, Monks and Sir Douglas Quintet. Three part harmionies, unexpected chord progressions and a garage-rock spirit go hand in hand, but don't call The Cool Ghouls a retro band!

    Ron House (Great Plains, Thomas Jefferson Slave Appartments) and Jared Philips (Time sNew Viking) hit all the lo-fi indie-punk buttons of the Columbus sound. Loose, clever, catchy, intense, and oh-so wrong. Silkscreened and paste-on jackets. Edition of 500.

    Part man part wheel, Delaney Davidson is part wandering minstrel, part travelling salesman. One hand holds a small brown suitcase, his trade, his ghost orchestra, the other holds his guitar. One foot firmly in the blues trash corner of the ring, the other on the road, you could say Delaney sees music as he sees geography, and that although he has certain preferences, in fact all territories are up for grabs. Ireland, Germany, Italy, Brazil, UK, Switzerland, Mexico, Austria, Romania, Belgium, Holland, Russia, France, USA, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand, all destinations on the ten year solo tour with which Davidson has turned homelessness into a success of its own. Man of a thousand faces, his work with paint, music, film and concept all has traces of his unique take on life. Part new world and part old world, this duality is echoed in the flavours he evokes with his work; Past VS present, too loud for folk VS too quiet for rock, Light VS Dark, Davidson's restless work refuses to be still for the portrait it is asked to sit for. A pattern we see in his own restless life, indeed, the apple never falls far from the tree. "One rotten apple ruins the whole barrel" laughs Delaney when asked to describe his work. "But then I think we all need a few rotten apples".

    Mr. Airplane Man was a Boston duo, Margaret Garrett (guitar, vocals) and Tara McManus (drums, keyboards), who have been playing since 1996. They named themselves after a Howlin' Wolf song. Friends since grade school, their obsession with rock and roll and blues music inspired the band. They began playing on the street and by 1999 they were voted Best New Local Act by readers of the Boston Phoenix. Margaret and Tara have created a unique niche for themselves, a raw and real hypnotic, mesmerizing sound that borrows equally from blues icons like Howlin' Wolf and proto-garage bands like Boston's The Lyres. They quickly won a whole string of heavyweight admirers, from Morphine's late Mark Sandman, who taught Margaret how to play guitar to Greg Cartwright of the Oblivians and the Reigning Sound. They released during first mid-2000s three full-length album on Sympathy for the Record Industry and played with bands like the White Stripes and the Strokes. John Peel discovered them and had them do several sessions. They toured all around America and Europe. Mr Airplane Man's story ended up in 2006. This album is a witness of their early days as a band. It captures their very first studio experience and the very deep and true essence of what Mr Airplane Man became later on. Partly produced and recorded by Mark Sandman. Originally self-released in 1998 on CD by the band, it had to wait 15 years to finally be released on a proper vinyl. One time 1000 copies pressing. Silk-screened cover on tobacco cardboard.

    According tom insiders they sound like The Shags, but they're also part of the whole neo-garage wave with folks like Shannon & the Clams, Hunx & His Punx and that whole Ty Segall-Oh Sees axis. Needlecraft is part Waters/Hairspray camp, part uh... Ronnettes, and some outsider mountain isolation.

    By Casbah's fourth release it shouldn't be too hard to talk about an album. But now that Owen Temple Quartet has entrusted the label with the release of Rot in the Sun, it appears that they have their work cut out for them. However thrilled they could have been by the band members' other activities (No Guts No Glory, Bad Chickens, Rodéo Massacre...), it soon became obvious that Rot in the Sun was a mysterious record, one with a powerful identity. This last album spits out a thick richness and contagious darkness, with urges reminiscent of the Gun Club and Chrome Cranks, a Movie Star Junkies-esque fever with Nick Cave's ceremonial tone. Rot in the Sun is one of those albums whose theme and atmosphere just won't go away. It conveys a feeling of destruction, the clarion call to a battle that will spare no musical entity. Owen Temple Quartet insist here on their subtlety and power, a gripping, vibrant, lively, power.

    Canadian garage-rocker-in-Paris Vince Posadski subtly transcribes his love for Quebec's '60s rock'n'roll and psychedelic obscurities (Serge Blouin, Les Sinners, Les Habits Jaunes, Les Lunours, Aut'Chose, Peloquin/Sauvageau, etc.) while staying true to his Oblivians/Cheater Slicks roots with some juvenile savage outbursts. Kick back, relax and eat your brain like a 3AM poutine with the six deviant jams on this fine little platter.

    NEW IN STOCK - 2013.17

    Moscow's scene is pretty damn active lately. Along with The Thunderbeats LP, here's a new teen combo, The Vice wich is getting bigger and better and surely deserves your attention. Mixing jangly folk-garage-pop with hints of indie rock the lads have released a terrific four track debut-EP. Expecting to see them live in Europe pretty soon all you can do is enjoy the record, expecting also a complete album planned for early 2014. You'll probably find yourself singing around their songs in the shower or driving your car. Yes they're that catchy too! Last but not least the four track's housed in a beautiful purple illustration cover, courtesy of our artist Alessandra Monoriti, that captures the moodiness as well as the tension of this debut. Cockney-speaking customers beware, these guys' Russian accent might be too strong and not just your cup of tea, but hell, they have the sound, the looks, focus and the attitude!

    The Tav Falco Panther Burns reissue/remaster-series, part II! This one contains the Sugar Ditch Revisited EP (1985) and The Shake Rag EP (1986).

Foldout-cover featuring the original 12"-sleeves. Full colour printed innersleeves featuring extensive liner notes by Tav Falco himself. Stickered mentioning its contents. The master of a raw and shambolic fusion of rockabilly, blues, and fractured noise, Falco was, along with the Cramps, one of the earliest purveyors of what would come to be known as psychobilly (though his version of the sound lacked the campy horror movie ambience others brought to it), and he anticipated the fractured but hard-hitting blues wailing of the Gories and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion by close to a decade.

    Simply the greatest garage band to come out of Australia in the mid to late 80s. This album gathers all their best tracks from early singles, their sought after mini-album, outtakes, alternative versions includes a cool insert with previously unseen/rare pix and the full story of the band.

Old school garage fans or new to such sounds, you'll be hooked anyway!

    ...From 1972-1979'. Sharpies were the terror teen cast of a Richard Allen novel that never was. Although largely synonymous with the early-to-mid 1970s, reports of their violent clashes with rival gangs of Mods are documented as early as 1966. Bored, working-class, suburban kids, their teenage rampage began in Melbourne, Australia, but soon there were Sharpie gangs forming in Sydney, Perth and beyond. For a while they were the untouchables, ruling dances, discos and public transport with their fists. Sharpies were fiercely territorial and divided into different chapters according to location. They would often wage aggressive wars within their tightly delineated sub-gangs, although Mods always remained their arch-enemy. Sharpie boys and girls wore similar uniforms: a slim-fitting, ribbed and collared cardigan called a Conny, T-shirts, tight jeans (Lee or Levis) and big platform shoes. Hair was worn short or shaved with long wisps at the back, influenced by the British ska, mod and skinhead subcultures. Sharpie girls had their hair slightly longer and often with coloured streaks - Bowie-red was their colour of choice. Boys often bleached their hair. Tattoos were popular, although many were homemade and poorly executed. Their diet was anthemic glam-rock, kung-fu movies and A Clockwork Orange. As the 1970s drew to a close, and new styles like punk and disco began to emerge, Sharpies started to fade. By 1979 they were all-but gone. Today they are recognised as an important part of Australian youth culture and social history. This compilation features rare tracks and 'cult' anthems that were the soundtrack to the rise of this Australian answer to the skinhead subculture: with the likes of the Hush, Fat Daddy, Supernaut, Skyhooks, John Paul Young... it can't be missing in any 'Killed By Death' type collection!
