Blokes from Wales and Holland, including Pooh Sticks producer Steve Gregory, do an album of songs based on the infamous 1970 Burks/Hopkins book, "Groupies." Sleaze and titillation disguised as anthro-journalism? (SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY)
"Where the Bands Are"
SFTRI 357-7 7" $4.00
The mastermind behind two of the best Pooh Sticks albums steps out with a classic pop slice of wit, charm and borderline indie cred, and a groupie's lament for a fast-lane lifestyle. (SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY)

The inimitable Mark Solotroff growls lines like "And someone walks across your brain!" or "Serve my every mood!" or "My cock is on fire!" in a kind of psychedelic cookie-monster voice, over a dense, CCCC-like wall of synthesizer emergency sounds.

"Steal the Show"
INV 021-2 CD $10.30
Fun-loving DONOVAN and DAVE B.'s Pacific Northwest ska band, with its amazing live show and fabulous following, combines American ska with their punk roots. At the same time, this doesn't fall into ska-core, as this is 100% danceable and catchy on its 12 songs. Countless shows, appearances on NW radio stations and the "Land of Bogfoot ska" comp have left the kids yappin' for more! (INVESTIGATOR)

DRP 9648-1 LP $8.40
With the Melvins cheesing around on different major and minor labels, what's there for us pummelcore fanatics to bang our heads to? How about the low, slow, droning, squealing, apocalyptic tones of Portland's heaviest band, Iommi Stubbs. These 6 groanfests also recall Man Is The Bastard, Grief, and of course Sabbath. Silkscreen cover, glow-in-the-dark ink. (AMERICAN VOTER)

ROCO 017-2 CD $9.75
The 2nd CD from this exotic, artsy, one-of-a-kind, highly entertaining Portland band who manage to make sense of an unreasonably wide range of musical influences: Pavement-like warm but dissonant guitars and Farfisa, echos of Old World Europe, Middle Eastern tonalities, Latin percussion, jazzy horns, and occasional experimental excursions.

J CHURCH / DISCOUNT
LM 018-7 7" $3.85
2 bands from the top of the emo-heap share this 4-song slab o wax. DISCOUNT's heavy sound and heart-on-sleeve female vocal outpourings grab you from the git go, and J CHURCH doesn't let go with their trademark uptempo happy sadness. Unusually for them, their second song relaxes the tempo for an echo-y, melancholy, almost BEACH BOYS-ish tune with slide guitar! (LIQUID MEAT)

Recorded in 1979, this is the album done by ANONYMOUS under the moniker J. RYDER, which was the title of one of the best songs included in their rare debut album.

"Drunk on the Highway"
BD 001-7 7" $4.00
Netherlands punk with a tenancy towards the darker more drunken moments with songs like "Drunk on the Highway" and "Take the Money and Run". The dirty blaring vocals, pounding drums, and some great rock-n-roll guitar all wrapped up in a raw recording style make this a necessary investment. (BABY DOLL)
ND 6-2 CD $5.40
Early '80s-styled hardcore from the East Bay at its most assured, and this CD collects the trio's complete recorded output. With rapid-fire girl/boy vocals, intelligent, socially-conscious lyrics, group-shouted chants, ska-core interjections and other surprises, and the consistently overwhelming vocals of Elspeth.

Shattered and full of delusion with the breakup of THE OBLIVIANS, Jack has been spooked into the idea of releasing this moody, exciting and vibrant aberration consisting of home recordings 1991-98.

VIRUS 228-1 LP $8.85
VIRUS 228-2 CD $10.50
Both of HALF JAPANESE fame, Jad and Jason gave themselves free reign in the studio between '96 and '98. Passionately driven with utter abandon, their wildness can be expressive and innovative, unintentionally creating new musical genres. Their music is pop, with elements borrowed from lo-fi calypso, farfisa surf and '50s go-go beat. Their chemistry is at once like a roller coaster, a volcano, popcorn, an exorcism, cotton candy. More than 20 songs on vinyl, more than 30 on the CD. Tell Grandma to put her teeth in... it's time to have a party. (ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES)

MAKOTO 2.5-7 7" $3.65
That singer of Silverfish moved in with The Jesus Lizard and they ate dinner every day with The Birthday Party. Did I mention that they lived across the hall from Gang of Four and UOA? Let's just say massive, dark, apocalyptic hardcore. Silkscreened fold-out cover. (MAKOTO)

MEGAP 012-2 CD $11.60
Maybe they shoulda titled this "3 Guys Fucking Around in the Studio in the Middle of the Night Buzzed on Dope & Making a Lot of Weird Sounds," but they didn't. Kinda reminds one of the wilder parts of the Mothers of Invention's "Freak Out" album. 46 "songs." (MEGAPHONE)

SA 28-7 3x7" $9.85
All-around noisy guy Jason Willett and pal Benb Gallaher (and Jason's pet duck Wally) pick up a big bunch of instruments from traditional to bizarre and wail away.

Thirteen songs are spread over the 3 disks in a box, each a different vinyl color. (STOMACH ACHE)

"Knocked Down 7 Times, Got Up 8"
JR 01-2 CD $9.50
Here's what happens when a '77 punk original drifts in a country western direction over a space of about 20 years. Jean's tough, smoky, rich voice immediately grabs you and leads you through vivid songs that touch honky tonk, country western, folk, and rock, kind of like a cross between Brenda Lee and Patti Smith, or maybe k.d. lang and a less commercial Michelle Shocked. When you come down to it though, Jean writes better songs. (JOE)

SHIMMY 38-2 CD $14.00
Here's a disctinctly 90's take on psychedelia. Trippy tunes that could have come from Pink Floyd or the Beatles 25 years ago, but given a treatment that could only come from the grungy present. The CD has several songs from their 1st album, "Plank", plus one extra. (SHIMMY-DISC)
SHIMMY 33-1 LP $7.90

OO 9-2 CD $11.70
Well, I read the liner notes, but couldn't figure out what the hell they were talking about. This is one bizarre disc, lemme warn you right now. The first of the 5 pieces here sounds like a collision between a herd of homemade rattles and a few inebriated violins! These are compositions (despite the seeming randomness of the sounds) played on a variety of constructed or severely altered acoustic instruments and devices. (O.O. DISCS)
JESS FRANCO AND HIS B-BAND
"The Manacoa Experience"
CDHW 037-2 CD $13.00
A dazzling lesson in cinematic B-film jazz. Cult director Jess Franco ("Vampyros Lesbos," and many more) teamed up with prominent jazz musicians (and plays keyboards himself!) for this musical tribute to his most popular work.

This Japanese trash-filth-punk band had a pic disc out on Sympathy a while back, and now return with 4 tracks produced by Fink from the Teengenerates.

GERN 046-1 LP $7.70
GERN 046-2 CD $9.35

BRS 7004-7 7" $4.15
3 songs of hard, melodic guitar punk from Portland, OR. Not exactly what you'd expect from SURF TRIO's record label, but it's easy to see how the JIMMIES' party vibe, rockin' sound, tuneful hooks, and good-humored lyrics must have won them over. Great sound quality, funny full-color sleeve, clear vinyl. (BLOOD RED VINYL)
EF 1005-7 7" $4.15
One of the fastest and slickest of the 50's hillbilly guitarists (some say best guitarist ever, period!), Bryant is captured here on two somewhat bizarre instros from 1962 (ECCO-FONIC)

JIN HI KIM
OO 24-2 CD $11.70
(Thankfully) accoustic pieces drawing primarily from traditional Korean music and concepts, but with the inclusion of string quartet, oboe, and flutes making for an occasional Albert Ayler or Giacinto Scelsi feel. With Robert Dick and Joseph Celli. (O.O. DISCS)
TSMR 2-7 7" $3.80
This Chicago hardcore trio does 4 angry but humorous songs with a knack for fun, singalog melodies. But make no mistake, these tough, powerhouse tunes make your average pop punk band sound a bit lame. (THEY STILL MAKE RECORDS)

JT 1042-2 CD $10.20
Features band mainstay Tim Kinsella and a revolving door of musicians (including former TATTLETALE vocalist Jen Wood and one-third of the free jazz CHICAGO UNDERGROUND TRIO).

NUFQA 3-7 7" $4.00
There's a bunch of Caroliners on here (in disguise) and while this isn't their style of wild noise by a long shot, it is wild, crazy, and generally totally nuts. One song is in Chinese! (NUF SED COURTESY NIPPLE)
"The Prophecy of Daniel and John the Divine"
NSPP0S 3-7 7" $4.00
Their first single is finally back in print! Equal parts noise, psycho-country bible-thumpin' lunacy and David Koresh-inspired rock & roll. (NUF SED COURTESY NIPPLE)
ND 18-2 CD5 $4.00
