BRAINIAC 5
We're Ready!
 cover
Reckless
Some of our customers might not be aware of the fact that Reckless had a label in the 80's & 90's with releases by bands such as BEVIS FROND, BLACK SUN ENSEMBLE & CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN. The label was reborn in 2014 with a CD compilation for BRAINIAC 5, a late 70's UK art-punk group fronted by Reckless owner Charles Taylor. The band has officially reformed in 2012 & this is their 3rd album since then. The group continues to explore the realm of post-punk & art rock with hints of PERE UBU, WIRE & SOFT BOYS with subtle hints of progressive & jazz mixed in. RECOMMENDED OF COURSE!

ALL OUT WAR
Give Us Extinction (colored Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Organized Crime
2017 album from New York's ALL OUT WAR proves why this band is one of the heaviest, ever. You know this band when you hear them: the perfect blend of NYHC & like, OBITUARY. Devastating, as always!
Available at: All Stores
New LP $15.99

RACETRAITOR
Invisible Battles Against Invisible :fortresses (green Vinyl, Ltd 250)
 cover
Organized Crime
Five songs from the re-formed Chicago hardcore/metal band RACETRAITOR! Although the record starts with a dirge, the rest of these songs grind away & are borderline death metal. We have to shout out ANDY HURLEY on the drums because he's ridiculous. Ultra- heavy stuff & a welcome, crushing return!
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New 45 $6.99

MYCELIUM CLOAK
Infinity Suit
 cover
Self
Debut release from Chicago's MYCELIUM CLOAK is a lo-fi, one-mic-in-the-room kinda recording with several styles of savagery: the "fuck off" style of second- wave black metal, blasting grind, a little free- jazz noise, distorted vocals/everything. A real harsh treat!
Available at: All Stores
New Cassette $6.99

JOAN OF ARC
Theme Song From Rainbo (3trks) (color Vinyl, Ltd. Ed.)
 cover
Joyful Noise
Some nice wordplay experiments from Tim & Melina on "Theme Song From Rainbo" Thought the b-side was a KISS cover but it isn't but that's ok :)
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New 45 $5.99

ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER
Good Time (2lp, Soundtrack)
 cover
Warp
2017 soundtrack to the Safdie brothers' 2017 film "Good Time" courtesy of ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER features "The Pure & the Damned" featuring IGGY POP!
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $24.99

MORAL VOID
Deprive
 cover
Translation Loss
Debut long-player from Chicago's MORAL VOID has a little something for heshers from all walks of life: their blackened crust punk is perfectly distorted & pissed off.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $18.99

CIANIDE
Dying Truth (reissue, Color Vinyl)
 cover
The Crypt
Yes! Much appreciated reissue of this Chicago death/ doom classic from 1992 "The Dying Truth" by CIANIDE. Slow & plodding riffs & a guitar tone that kind of sounds like you have cotten stuffed in your ears (& maybe a cotton-y feeling in your mouth for some reason too?). RECOMMENDED.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $23.99

EPIDEMIC
Decameron (reissue, Red Vinyl)
 cover
The Crypt
Reissue of this underrated 90's West Coast death/trash album by EPIDEMIC. We're not sure why these guys never really took off because this album is pretty incredible. Hints of "Reign in Blood", SEPULTURA's "Chaos A.D.", TERRORIZER with incredible riffs.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $23.99

ABSU
Tara (2lp Reissue, Green Vinyl)
 cover
The Crypt
Much needed reissue of this not classic 2001 album by the mighty ABSU. Starting off with a short bagpipe intro (yep), the album quickly explodes into some of the most intense & spazzed-out techy, blackened death metal. Led by one of the craziest drummers ever, Proscriptor, the drums really are the lead instrument here & the playing is just ridiculous. Truly one of the most unique metal bands of the last 20 years. MYTHOLOGICAL OCCULT METAL!
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $29.99

GHOST (POLAND)
Lost Of Mercy (reissue)
 cover
The Crypt
Reissue of this 1994 album from the Polish death metal band GHOST. Top-notch death metal with great dive-bomb soloing & gutteral vocals.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $23.99

MCKENNA MENDELSON BLUES
Mckenna Mendelson Blues (reissue)
 cover
Lion Productions
This Canadian band released an album called "Stink" that was incredibly well received in the blues rock/ psychedelic world. These demos recorded in 1968 are maybe a bit swampier & nasty but no less impressive. Definitely more on the blues side than psych but we think people more on the 'BEEFHEART, QUICKSILVER MESSENGER SERVICE, Peter Green etc... will dig.

New LP $15.99

VARIOUS ARTIST
Cold Waves Of Color 4
 cover
Lion Productions
Color Tapes was started in 1981 by future SUN DIAL member Gary Ramon & the label has re-started & teamed up with Lion Productions. Influenced by seeing early DEPECHE MODE & GRANDMASTER FLASH shows & the bleak landscape of late 70's & early 80's London, Ramon dove into the rapidly expanding DIY cassette culture. Many of the songs featured on this compilation were from small cassette pressings of less than 100 copies & many of the songs are being reissued here for the first time. This is mostly pretty minimal stuff with sparse drum box beats & primitive synths & a lot of the songs are closer to pre-industrial sounds of THROBBING GRISTLE, early HUMAN LEAGUE & early CABARET VOLTAIRE than the more slick sounds of DEPECHE MODE or O.M.D.

New CD $8.99

FALL SILENT
Superstructure (clear W/ Black & Red Splatter)
 cover
702
Seeing as how FALL SILENT has risen from the grave in 2017 with a new 7-inch (the curiously-titled "Cart Return") the band pressed up a new batch of their all- time classic "Superstructure" LP on fancy colored vinyl! Originally released in 1999, this LP really has it all: a foundation in hardcore (from super- fast blasting to crushing breakdowns), but also a serious groove & borderline death metal riffage. Their singers' shriek might not be for everyone, but there's no doubt the guy is screaming his brains out, for real. Just an absolute crusher. Contains a cover of JOURNEY's "Any Way You Want It" because the band didn't take them so seriously, like waaaaay too many hardcore bands do. The best thing to come out of Reno since KEN SHAMROCK. YOU NEED THIS TO LIVE.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $14.99

PYE CORNER AUDIO
Sleep Games (imp)
 cover
Ghost Box
October 2012 release on Ghost Box (a Reckless fave) this time from PYE CORNER AUDIO. If you've been following the label then you're aware of the label's fascination with 60's British TV & film soundtracks, specifically in the horror & sci-fi variety, British horror in general etc... "Sleep Games" finds their soundtrack fascination moving into the 80's with PYE CORNER AUDIO doing a fantastic take on horror & sci-fi soundtracks of that decade. John Carpenter, Giorgio Moroder, KRAFTWERK, HARMONIA & TANGERINE DREAM come to mind as well & one track even reminded us of the "Knight Rider" theme. So if you love soundtracks like "Escape from New York" & "The Terminator" as much as we do along with ZOMBI, EMERALDS etc.. then you should check this out.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New LP $16.99

NAOMI PUNK
Yellow (2lp)
 cover
Captured Tracks
"Yellow" is the 2017 record from the Olympia, WA post-punkers NAOMI PUNK. This is a collection of dark & brooding rockers that remind us of "154" era WIRE, DISAPPEARS & even the more rocking side of LIARS.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $23.99

GUANTANAMO BAYWATCH
Desert Center (color Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Suicide Squeeze
"Desert Center" is the 2017 album from the Portland based surf/garage rock band GUANTANAMO BAYWATCH. Fun & somewhat scuzzy tunes that do a good job of paying homage to the surf rock genre while managing to sound fresh at the same time.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $14.99

LUCKY BOYS CONFUSION
Stormchasers
 cover
Mutant League
WOW - Chicago-area stalwarts LUCKY BOYS CONFUSION re- emerge with their first new material since 2009's "Closing Arguments" & this album is well worth the wait. Heavy, melodic pop (punk) with an emphasis on big riffs & even bigger hooks. A welcome return!

CASE, BRIAN
Spirit Design (imp)
 cover
Hands in the Dark
Brian Case is a busy man. Somehow in the last year or so he's found time to start a new new band called FACS (which features 3/4 of DISAPPEARS, who are on indefinite hiatus), started a label called MILDVILNC & released a 12" on it by his project ACTEURS & then this 2nd solo album "Spirit Design", all while finding time to be a dad. The music is similar to "Tense Nature" with sparse beats, almost atonal synths & modular synth noise but he's added vocals to this one so there's more of a bridge to FACS & DISAPPEARS this time. Expertly crafted post-industrial from this Chicago vet. RECOMMENDED!

RADIOHEAD
Ok Computer (reissue) Oknotok (3lp, Cassette, Book)
 cover
XL
20 years ago while the music press was wasting their time trying to determine whether BLUR or OASIS were the best band from the U.K., RADIOHEAD released what would come be known as one of the best art rock records of the 20th century. "Ok Computer" still sounds incredibly fresh & brimming with great ideas & in honor of its anniversary, it's been remastered & re-released with the b-sides from those sessions. More exciting than that though, 3 legendarily unreleased tracks are released for the first time here & I guess we shouldn't be too shocked that they're great songs. Anniversary reissues can seem kind of pointless but we have to say that this one is more than worth picking up & filing next to your original copy. This boxset edition includes the remastered LP, the outtakes & b-sides, a massive book with art & sketchbook ideas by Thom from the era & a cassette of demos, live recordings & more compiled by the band!! RECOMMENDED!!!
