Fourth and final release by the original 10cc featuring Lol Creme and Kevin Godley, who left after this to work on the gizmo and make a name for themselves writing really smart and smart-ass pop music that didn't sell until they became early video producers and doing fine work in that arena.

Classic, classy stuff that could never happen now.

Third release by the original 10cc featuring Lol Creme and Kevin Godley, who left not too long after this to work on the gizmo and make a name for themselves writing really smart and smart-ass pop music that didn't sell until they became early video producers and doing fine work in that arena.

Classic, classy stuff that could never happen now. Yes, it has their ubiquitous pop hit. It was an amazing work; Watch this and be amazed...

“25 YARD SCREAMER is a trio based in Wales, UK, and was founded by chance in 2002 when Nick JAMES (vocals, guitars) needed to get hold of some musicians for a showcase gig. Matt CLARKE (bass) and Donal OWEN (drums) were able to help out; and they hit it off so well that the creation of a band was called for.

“The album is a rerecording/reimagining of our debut album.
It's been a bit of a revelation to revisit these songs that were written in the early days of the band. We were getting to know each other as friends and musicians. Lots of laughter and enthusiasm surrounded the writing at a time that held a lot less responsibilities for all of us.
Donal, Nick and I had wanted to put the songs down so we could review what we were doing. Basically, we created an album of demos.
Very much a live...

“The eponymous debut 4 track EP from The 3 Clubmen, a new project comprised of Andy Partridge (XTC), Jen Olive and Stu Rowe. The culmination of a decade of antics from these longtime collaborators, the EP is an avant-pop delight offering a seductive blend of experimental pop, jazz and sci-fi soundtrack strangeness.
While each artist has worked with the others in some form since 2008, The 3 Clubmen marks the first time that Stu, Andy and Jen have.

Martin Pickett piano, Paul Jefferies double bass, Ben Twyford drums.

Second release (of 3) by this US psychedelic band. Spacious tracks with tons of great guitar and synth work which all ROCKS heavy and hard and trancey! If you love/loved Quantum Fantay, Hidria Spacefolk, Øresund Space Collective, Dasputnik, etc etc etc...

Very good (although not as great as hyped) Greek psychedelic album. Despite it being the middle 70's, I guess it might as well have been 8 years earlier, because this really captures a late 60's vibe... "The first ever official CD reissue of an album t...

"There is life after DEATH after all—and just like you’ve heard, it hinges on accepting You-Know-Who as your lord and savior. 1980: it was the dawn of a new age. Built on the broken backs and bodies of those who had hoped and dreamed for a better world, the '80s made it clear: that world wasn’t coming. A generation and more plunged into the abyss. But what of Death? The HACKNEY brothers were no different from anybody else—in the heat and tumult of the 1970s, they’d seen that new world coming. They’d...

Dean Granros: guitar
Pat Keen: upright bass
Dave Power: drums

Here’s what I know: Guitarist Dean Granros ably stepped into Davey Williams’ shoes for the final Curlew album, Mercury, and filled a role that would have been nearly impossible for anyone, even someone great.
Like Davey, he’s firmly rooted in the blues, but he also is an improvising player who reaches far beyond those roots.

“For the epic length album debut album by this Finnish progressive rock group, the Pink Floyd / Yes / Genesis -influenced group has recruited the vocal talents of Pink Floyd backing vocalist Durga McBroom as well as keyboardist Jukka Gustavson, the founding member of the cult favourite Finnish Prog band Wigwam, who were signed by Richard Branson‘s Virgin Records in the mid-70’s.
Featuring, in Classic Prog Rock style, epic length showcase pieces like the instrumental opener “In Memoriam…” and the...

The second and final of the 'second wave' line-up of 5uus (basically Dave Kerman, Bob Drake and Sanjay Kumar + guests). This is considered by many people to be their best period and I would probably agree.

"Second installment from monster band 5UU's, featuring rock complexity, extraordinary production (by bassist and singer Bob Drake) and high energy precision mixed with eccentric song-writing. People that work this hard are becoming an endangered species. Extraordinary."-Chris Cutler

"Magnificent" - Boston Rock

"...will easily contend for the best release of new music this year." - Gibraltar

"...one of the most unique and startling albums in a long time - original, vibrant and cutting edge." - Expose

Drummer/composer Dave Kerman revived the 5uu's in the mid 90's with long time keyboardist Sanjay Kumar and guitarist/bassist/vocalist Bob Drake of Thinking Plague. As the review says below, it strongly hints at a parallel universe combination of Ye

FINALLY, finally released on CD for the turntable-deprived!
75 Dollar Bill is the latest project by Rick Brown, formerly of V-Effect, Curlew, Fish & Roses, etc and Che Chen.
It's a really good band and a really good album; it's different from but absolutely in the same kind of league and sound as Horse Lords!

"Mr. Chen stood playing hypnotic guitar repetitions, moving with the stresses of the riffs, the drummer Rick Brown sat on a square wooden box, open in the back, and attacked....

Excellent AACM octet from Chicago that I had the great pleasure of seeing (after many years of wanting to) at Edgefest, 2006, and man they were fantastic. So, now they and this - their most recent although not new - album is here.

Personnel: Lydia Lunch, Pat Irwin, Michael Paumgardhen, Jim Sclavunos, George Scott III.
Lydia Lunch, member of defunct late-70s punk/no wave band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, was known for an extreme, often confrontational style. In between Teenage Jesus and the beginning of her solo career, she formed 8-Eyed Spy, a band that took the cacophony of her first band and made it more palatable with elements of post-punk and funk.

“The highly collectable and legendary 1972 self-titled album by 9.30 Fly.
Formed in Cheltenham in 1971, 9.30 were a highly original band who took in folk and progressive influences in their work. The line-up featured Michael Wainwright (vocals), Barbara Wainwright (vocals, keyboards), Lyn Oakey (guitar), Gary Charman (bass) and Mike Clark (drums).
Released on the Ember label in 1972, "9.30 Fly" is legendary for the originality of the music within and also for it's great rarity. Although the...

VIII Strada are an Italian quintet whose first album from 2008 fell somewhere between progressive rock and progressive metal.

But since that time, they replaced their keyboardist, retooled their over-all sound and are much more aligned with progressive rock, while still having a modern, heavy sound.
The band is:
Tito Vizzuso - vocals
Daniele Zigliani - guitars
Silvano Negrinelli - keyboards
Sergio Merlino - bass
Riccardo Preda - drums
