Kristin Hersh ‘Clear Pond Sessions’

Never released stripped back versions from Kristin Hersh’s stunning 2023 album Clear Pond Road’ pressed on white vinyl. The Clear Pond Sessions are a cinematic road trip complete with additional strings; a series of personal vignettes from a fiercely independent auteur, a life-affirming statement and another piece of the Hersh jigsaw.

An elegant piece of personal reportage, a home movie caught in time, being prepared for the big screen by this indie cult icon.

Ltd Ed White LP


Royal Trux ‘Royal Trux’

Available for the first time on vinyl since 1976, pressed on silver wax and featuring a limited edition foil embossed sleeve with extensive liner notes.

Crosscut Saw sees the reformed Groundhogs with second guitarist Dave Wellbelove, sparring with the legendary Tony McPhee. “Musically I’d gone back to the basics,” McPhee told Sounds, the addition of a doodle of synth and a second guitarist notwithstanding. As a result; “Riffs galore permeate.” (AllMusic). A suitably explosive prog-pleasing follow up to 1992’s ‘Who Will Save The World’ and ‘Hogwash’ rekindling the fire of the blues in a new, heavy progressive setting, all set for a new guitar-powered age.

The Chills ‘The Lost EP’

The Lost EP is back on vinyl for the first time in almost four decades, a cornerstone of New Zealand’s ‘Dunedin Sound’ of the 1980s. Faithfully restored with original artwork and insert, the EP is pressed on yellow vinyl and features six tracks of sublime pop from the pen of The Chills’ mainstay Martin Phillipps.

Originally released in 1985, after the master tapes had been mislaid for 12 months, The “Lost” EP is the perfect mix of Phillipps’ pop sensibilities and his often-dark lyrics. Doffing a cap to dream pop, garage punk, psychedelic whimsey and old school indie along the way, it’s a band truly finding themselves.

The Dream Syndicate ‘Sketches for the Days of Wine and Roses’

Unearthed cuts from the early days of cult heroes The Dream Syndicate, pressed to vinyl for the very first time. Demos and rehearsals taped between formation and the recording of their seminal Days Of Wine And Roses album, recorded by drummer Dennis Duck, mostly in 1981-82.

Lifting the lid on one of the key protagonists of The Paisley Underground and the 80s psychedelic revival. A cathartic and creative outpouring of exciting ideas and tangential grooves. In the words of frontman Steve Wynn, “We’re playing music we want to hear because nobody else is doing it.”

Come ‘Eleven:Eleven (Deluxe Edition)’

Deluxe re-issue of cult Boston band’s 1992 debut. Featuring the intense guitar interplay of Thalia Zedek and Chris Brokaw.

An awe-inspiring collision of noise via American blues-rock with thunderous rhythms holding together every six-string duel. An album that defined Zadek and Brokaw’s songwriting partnership as one of the most original bands of the 90s, tirelessly meshing their blues-infected ballads with feedback and epic instrumental breakdowns.

In addition, the nine original tracks are extended with the ‘Fast Piss Blues’ 7inch single, pressed on sea blue vinyl, with the flipside, a cover of The Rolling Stones’ ‘I Got the Blues’. The release also includes a download of ‘Live At Vermonstress Festival’ recorded on the 10th of November 1992.

The Bevis Frond ‘Live at the Great American Music Hall’

Pressed for the first time on vinyl, an incendiary live set of greatest hits of The Bevis Frond circa 1998. Featuring over an hour’s worth of prime Frond, it mixes the bittersweet melodies of Nick Saloman’s much-covered ‘Lights Are Changing’ and ‘He’d Be A Diamond’ with fuzz fuelled riffs and masterful soloing. Played as a power trio with Saloman enlists his long-time associate and former Hawkwind bass player Adrian Shaw, and Andy Ward, former drummer with 70s prog giants Camel.

With a staggering ten-minute rethinking of Love’s come down anthem ‘Signed DC’ closing the show. This set also includes culled cuts from their debut ‘Miasma’ through to the groundbreaking ‘New River Head’ and beyond into the 90s.

Ltd Ed Black 2XLP


Jane Weaver ‘Quantify/Deep Perelle’

Two unreleased studio cuttings from the sessions that spawned Jane Weaver’s symphonic space pop opus Love In Constant Spectacle, produced by John Parish.

Featuring ‘Quantify’ a Krautrock-powered vision driven at high speed through a synthetic backdrop littered with analogue synths and pulsing guitars. Cut with the raga-styled nuances of ‘Deep Perelle’, an other-worldly piece of ambience, tugged through with tabla drums and a fuzzy guitar pattern.

An essential part of the ongoing unfolding mystery of Jane Weaver.

Ltd Ed Cream Double A-Side 45


The Lemonheads ‘The Hotel Sessions’

First ever re-issue of Evan Dando’s The Hotel Sessions, recorded in 1992, these sessions document the writing process that preceded the band’s game changing ‘Come On Feel…’ record.

Recorded one Sunday evening in a Bondi Beach hotel, the collection an intimate insight into Dando’s songwriting with each song introduced with a personal commentary – it’s a voyeuristic romp into his thought process.

Featuring 14 songs, The Hotel Sessions is filled with insider secrets, names are dropped, situations re-counted and dope smoke fills the air.
