Gorilla Biscuits Start Today (re-issue) "Over the years, few records have earned the distinction of "classic." Within the punk and hardcore realm, even fewer have made an impact on the way an entire genre sounds. At the top of that small list, however, is GORILLA BISCUITS' Start Today. Hailing from NYC, GORILLA BISCUITS carved a niche within the the NY Hardcore scene. Blending the aggression and energy of bands like AGNOSTIC FRONT with a sense of melody likened to the DESCENDENTS and DAG NASTY, GORILLA BISCUITS still stands as a unique reference point for every hardcore band that has come after them. Start Today has now been remastered, leaving the components of the original recording intact but with a bolstered sound, as well as new packaging in a limited edition digipak and extended liner notes and photos. This is an essential part of any record collection." Revelation Records CD | LP Back in Stock!
William Onyeabor World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? A collection of songs from the 70s and 80s by the relatively unknown psychedelic musician William Onyeabor of which fans include Damon Albarn, Devendra Banhart, Four Tet and Caribou! The music ranges from synth-heavy electronic dance music to Afrosoul with saxophones and female backup singers, to psychedelic funk with wah-wah guitar and fuzzy keyboards - and often combines all of these elements. Who Is William Onyeabor?' may be the most complicated, if also one of the richest, undertakings in Luaka Bop's (rarely straightforward) 25-year history. Following the eight albums Onyeabor self-released between 1978 and 1985, he became a Born-Again Christian, refusing ever to speak about himself or his music again. Various biographies can be found online. Some say he studied cinematography in the Soviet Union and returned to Nigeria in the mid-70s to start his own film company, Wilfilms. Some say he was a lawyer with a degree from a university in Great Britain. Others portray him as a businessman who for years worked on government contracts in Enugu, Nigeria.

The Beatles Abbey Road CD inclues rare photographs, expanded and new essays and all enhanced with a video mini-documentary on the making of each album in the Beatles own words. The biggest band in rock history sees their final album digitally remastered for the first time on Vinyl and CD. Back with George Martin and back at Abbey Road (obviously!), this is a gorgeous, opulent, warm rock record that set the tone for FM seventies music. It does have John's groovy, freak-anthem "Come Together", but that's typically counterbalanced by Paul's absurdly cheesy (but still ace!) "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". Infact, it's George Harrison who weighs in with the two best pop songs here: "Here Comes The Sun" and even more so, "Something", put him right up there with the very best. But the unique thing about this album is the ingenious eight-song segue which closes proceedings, ending as it does with a special message of love. https://www.facebook.com/thebeatles Parlophone CD | LP Back in Stock!
