True story: I (Rick) went to the Pacific Northwest a couple weeks ago and visited a few spots specifically because of their appearance in Twin Peaks. This week we got in the Eraserhead OST LP put out by Sacred Bones Records. These things are going fast (Sacred Bones already announced a second pressing). Get weird David Lynch style (get it quick though or wait until the 2nd press). [Update: we ran out of these and have an order in currently for the second pressing - we'll let you know when they're in.]
Flower Travellin' Band. Heavy psych that really should be mentioned in the same breath as many of their more well known western contemporaries. This live footage backs that statement fully.
We recently got in some used Pig Destroyer LPs ("Prowler In The Yard" & "Terrifyer"). It got me thinking about how excited I am to see these grindcore legends at Maryland Deathfest next year!
I bought a collection of cool classic rock LPs this morning (Alice Cooper, Bowie, The Who) from a guy who told me his son was Kurt Feldman who plays drums for The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (As well as in The Depreciation Guild and The Ic e Choir). When I told him I carried their records in my store he got real excited! It was nice watching someone have a proud dad moment. POBPAH play summery feel good indie pop jams. Check out this video for "Say No To Love".
It's no secret that I'm a huge Integrity fan & collector. So today is pretty awesome because, the repress (originally on Victory) of their 1995 release,"Systems Overload" on Organized Crime Records arrived. Dwid & Co. have built a 20+ year career out out of making dark and explosive metal influenced hardcore. Check out the video for the title track. Mosh your bedroom. (Josh)
The Codeine discography got the deluxe reissue treatment from the Numero Group recently - done extensively and well. 3 records with plenty of stuffing! (It's like Thanksgiving.)
"Vee Vee" was the first of the Archers of Loaf CDs/LPs to get the remaster and reissue treatment. We've gotten in a couple more since then (still have "Vee Vee" of course, but now also "White Trash Heroes" and "All The Nations Airports").
