Black Lips new single ft. Kesha
‘They’s A Person Of The World’
Limited edition 7″
It’s a glorious, aching invocation of life. Worlds collide, styles cement, no-one goes home empty handed.
Released exclusively for Record Store Day 2020, the tracks on these LTD 7”s are not available anywhere else.
The Groundhogs ‘Split’ reissue
Limited edition double red vinyl with gatefold sleeve
The second of three ground-breaking albums by the ultimate power trio who morphed blues into hard rock and spawned punk. The second side delivers the mighty ‘Cherry Red’, McPhee’s take on The Beatles’ ‘A Day In the Life’, a sideswipe at junk food and a glorious interpretation of John Lee Hooker’s ‘Groundhogs Blues’.
A much-loved opus with a side-long concept piece. A bona fide inspirational rock classic. Remastered and packaged with a second disc of out-takes from the original sessions that spawned this spontaneous monster. ‘Split’ is released on double red vinyl for Record Store Day.
“Tony McPhee has turned to anarchic paranoid battlegrounds of the mind for inspiration,”Melody Maker
“Supercharged, fractured and raging.”MOJO
Television Personalities ‘Some Kind Of Happiness?’
Featuring all the EP and single tracks that originally appeared on a host of indie pop labels, it’s a cohesive trip into the mind of the songwriter along with a host of his favourite cover versions.
All in a lavish package with extensive sleeve notes and unseen photographs.
“Seen through this half empty glass, darkly, Dan Treacy is not Pete Doherty. He’s Elliott Smith, or Ian Curtis, but honestly, genuinely better and more gifted than either.” Pop Matters
Throwing Muses ‘Purgatory/Paradise’ reissue
Limited edition double LP gatefold sleeve
“The songs still bewitchingly combine beauty and tension.” The Guardian
Dennis Hopper’s ‘The Last Movie’ OST – Various Artists
