Artist: DEAD C
Title: Armed Courage
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"With nary a praising documentary, coffee table photo book or tribute band to their name, THE DEAD C are nonetheless one of the most respected, longest surviving groups in the history of rock. Still sporting the original band members (MICHAEL MORLEY on guitar / vocals, BRUCE RUSSELL on guitar, ROBBIE YEATS on drums) from their first assemblage in 1987, The Dead Cs renown has a lot to do with their stubborn unwillingness to compromise in any form. With a varied and challenging discography, the band has never released an album requiring later apology. No The Elder. No Diabolus in Musica. No Trans. Each release demands appraisal on its own merits and exists separate from any temporal trends in underground music, save for whatever influence theyve had on others. Armed Courage reaffirms their epochal career. With two side-long tracks, the record epitomizes the elements which elevate The Dead C to a level of worship. Compositions assemble and pivot, colliding new landscapes while undermining their very foundations. The Dead C exists on an intuitive sphere, with music never over-thought, yet rewarding when contemplated." -Ba Da Bing.

Title: Clyma Est Mort/Tentative Power
Format: Double LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Following the 2008 release of a pair of double-LPs, Ba Da Bing and Jagjaguwar continue their DEAD C reissue project with two new records. Relegated to expensive fodder for eBay bidders until now, Clyma Est Mort can be considered The Dead Cs "Ed Sullivan moment," except it wasnt performed live on network TV-it was recorded in a practice room in Port Chalmers, NZ, in 1992 with the inestimable TOM LAX of Siltbreeze as the sole member of the audience. Since the goal was to make a "fake bootleg" album for release on the mythical Proletariat Idiots Productions label-and in honor of the 13th Floor Elevators-the band dubbed in fake audience noise from a gig by the Renderers. Despite the deliberate incompetence with which this was accomplished, Clyma is often touted as a "live album." This is only true in the sense that the band members were alive when they made it. This double-LP reissue includes Tentative Power, a collection of non-album tracks many consider among the bands best moments. LP stickered with description." -Ba Da Bing

Artist: DEAD C
Title: DR503 + Sun Stabbed EP
Format: Double LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"The first in a series of DEAD C reissue collaborations between Jagjaguwar and Ba Da Bing, DR503 has been pressed on vinyl for the first time in years, along with the Sun Stabbed EP as a bonus record. Originally released in 1987 (and not to be confused with the releases DR503b or DR503c, which are completely different recordings), DR503 sounded like nothing that came before--a furious pastiche of unrelenting drones, noise and menace. It didnt fit in with the other bands New Zealands venerable Flying Nun was releasing, and it immediately staked a fork in the road, dividing the "New Zealand Pop Sound" from its black sheep brother, "New Zealand Noise." Today, the record still sounds as vicious and vital as when it first went to vinyl, except now perhaps there will be more people ready to appreciate the innovative approach the band took some 21 years ago. This reissue also contains a bonus record of the rare Sun Stabbed EP from the same recording period. With bonus tracks not on the original 7-inch, the recordings from the Sun Stabbed sessions are being released for the first time in their entirety. Release coincides with new album, Secret Earth. Packaged in beautiful gatefold Stoughton jackets." -Ba Da Bing!

Title: Future Artists
Format: CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"In their first new album since 2003s The Damned and last years double-CD greatest hits behemoth, Vain, Erudite and Stupid, New Zealands The Dead C return with another uncompromising realization of the finest rock improvisation youll ever hear. Future Artists contains five tracks of genius drone and barbarous clashing sounds. From the first track, The AMM of Punk Rock through to the last, Garage, their intensity is unyielding, their inventiveness jaw-dropping. Its been twenty years, and The Dead C show no sign of losing their ability to express the surreal and undefined. Long may they prosper." -Ba Da Bing!.

Artist: DEAD C
Title: Max Harris
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Max Harris captures the first recordings THE DEAD C ever made, back in January 1987. Each side displays a different and uniquely raw version of "Max Harris"-reinterpreted both times by a group who can truly say they have never played the same song in any form the same way twice. Anyone who doesnt own one of the original 21 cassette tapes made of these recordings will be hearing them together for the first time. Yes, theyve never been on vinyl before, so maybe one can even say this is the tracks first "real" release. You will be able to feel the slicing tension and drive right through your bones. LP stickered with description." -Ba Da Bing

Artist: DEAD C
Title: Patience
Format: CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Patience is both appropriate and inappropriate as a title for the latest release by THE DEAD C-inappropriate because its been only two years since the last album, which in Dead C Time is but the flicker of a candle; appropriate since the key to enjoying their sounds is willingness to sit down, listen and let the music take over your mind. These four unforgiving and intense tracks will not be confused with the work of any other band. Recorded in Dunedin over the Southern summer of 2009/10, Patience captures a restless band that never settles into any form. The trio of MICHAEL MORLEY, BRUCE RUSSELL and ROBBIE YEATS makes their improvised music sound like the most substantial ever recorded, no matter in what direction they go. Here, vocal-less, thick and thundering electric drones compound and retreat like a Pacific Ocean of noise. Morley once again provides the artwork and continues in his color palatte of late. Its circular, flowery texture provides the perfect mandala for contemplation while lost within the deep meditations that Patience inspires." - Ba Da Bing.

Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Limited to 1000 copies, Relax Fallujah coincides with THE DEAD Cs double-CD retrospective Vain, Erudite and Stupid: Selected Works 1987-2005, also on Ba Da Bing! Side A is brutal, never-released version of "Power" from the bands archives. The B-Side serves up their most famous song (especially after it was covered by the likes of Yo La Tengo and The Rogers Sisters, among others), for those who finally want to hear it on glorious vinyl." - Ba Da Bing!

Artist: DEAD C
Title: Secret Earth
Format: CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"The elegance of howling guitar noise was fully realized when THE DEAD C appeared. For over twenty years now, the trio has continually redefined what rock music is and can sound like, and have inspired Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Wolf Eyes, and Comets On Fire, not to mention the current fertile underground noise scene. The Dead C is the ultimate blues band. But rather than departing from the heartfelt singing of the African-American South, they express the tenants of alienation in society with unrelenting force-a focused soundtrack to accompany Knut Hamsun novels, Samuel Beckett plays, and Ingmar Bergman films. MICHAEL MORLEYs monotonic vocal moan anchors the inherent isolation of our modern world--nothing is more earnest, nothing sounds so lost. Along the axis of The Dead Cs recordings, Secret Earth sounds like it was created between Eusa Kills and Harsh 70s Reality. It contains a straightforward (for them) expression of sound, while continually pushing their vast improvisational techniques into a realm of subconscious genius. To coincide with this release, the band will be playing rare, select shows around the US in mid-October. They have not been to the east coast in over a decade, and will be visiting some places theyve never been (cheers, Seattle). LP version coming." -Ba Da Bing!

Title: Vain, Erudite and Stupid: Selected Works 1987-2005
Format: Double CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"With a catalogue that oscillates between subverting traditional song structures and stomping out and obliterating the very notion, New Zealands MICHAEL MORLEY, BRUCE RUSSELL and ROBBIE YEATS have continually made the most crushing, expansive and intelligent rock noise ever to be heard. The trio have been creating the greatest of squalls for twenty years now, and to mark the anniversary, Ba Da Bing is proud to present this double CD retrospective, with tracks hand-picked by the band members themselves, collecting old and new faves and out-of-print rarities. This release serves long-time fans and the curious alike, as chances are few people have heard everything on these discs. The band chose critical highlights as well as material they felt deserved wider exposure. While classics like "Constellation," "Power," and "Bitcher" are present, so are obscurities like "Mighty" from their Forced Exposure 7-inch, "All Channels Open" from the limited, double-disc DC record and "3 Years" from the Xpressway Pile-Up compilation. The real thrill is listening to the bands development over time, from the deconstructed skeletal rock of their early output to the eventual, cosmic marriage of reason and squalor that is as crushing as it is indescribable." - Ba Da Bing!.

Artist: GATE
Title: Republic Of Sadness
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The first new GATE record in over a decade, A Republic of Sadness is as much a reason for celebration as indoctrination into the creative genius of MICHAEL MORLEY. Known primarily for his work in THE DEAD C, Morley simultaneously has been doing Gate since hes started playing. A Republic of Sadness comprises the apex of Morleys various interests in one collection. His guitar and vocal drones permeate through looped beats and sounds, arriving at a sound that is not quite dance, not quite noise, not quite electronica and never, ever ambient. Michael Morley will be playing shows in the states this summer, including a few with Lee Renaldo." -Ba Da Bing

Artist: RENDERERS, THE
Title: A Rocket Into Nothing
Format: CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Over the past two decades, THE RENDERERS have crafted half a dozen albums of intimate psychedelia infused with Americana and noise. A Rocket Into Nothing is another extraordinary display of BRIAN and MARYROSE CROOKs talent as songwriters and sound sculptors. The Renderers are still as essential a piece of the diverse New Zealand indie rock puzzle as they were on their first Flying Nun album. Crafted during the series of earthquakes that hit the country in 2011, A Rocket Into Nothing seethes with the anxiety born of life-threatening experiences. On opener "Down River," slippery minor key melodies lie on beds of shaky feedback. Even the upbeat "This Shining Life" features wild, overblown guitars and subtle synth squeals. At any point, close listening reveals unexpected textures and tectonic shifts hidden just below the surface. More successfully than on any previous release, the band balances detail-oriented and spontaneous songwriting and recording techniques. Uncertainty plays a key role. Twenty years into most careers, bands lose the edge of their earlier work, but The Renderers music is as exciting as ever." - Ba Da Bing.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD
Title: No Retreat in Comfort
Format: CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"These are the last remaining copies of the 300-run CD that RICHARD YOUNGS sold on his US 2013 tour, which saw him travel up and down the East Coast, most memorably playing the support slot at the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, NC, opening for John Cale. In his own words: "No Retreat in Comfort was made on a week-long recording bender when I found myself home alone. I remember the weather was dreadful, and I rarely ventured outside. I borrowed a Moog Source, and the album started off as an hour and a half of synth jams. I then fitted the songs to my favourite jams. Having done the recording, it lay dormant for over a year when I remixed it for the tour-only CD. Influences? I dont think it sounds anything like it, but I have a memory of having heard the bonus disc of the McCartney II re-release at about this time and rather enjoying it. I also recall having a Gaelic Proverb book out of the library." -Ba Da Bing.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD
Title: Summer Through My Mind
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"RICHARD YOUNGS presents his debut recording for Ba Da Bing Records, and the label is looking forward to a long relationship. For Summer Through My Mind, Youngs pushes himself into a challenging new sphere yet again. A renowned musician with over 40 albums to his name, he goes somewhere he never has before-to the heart of American music. Summer Through My Mind is a country music album, warped through Youngss ambidextral mind. A warning: its not like any country album one has heard before. There are familiar elements scattered about-slide-guitar, heartfelt vocals, dark lyricism-but these pieces exist like alienated rocks from a planetary explosion of long ago. The discomfited guitar lines create patchy connections, and Youngss unmistakable singing seals things right up. The album draws together a story Youngs wrote as a child, involving bad people and dark spirits ("Story of Jhon" which has a vocal contribution from SIMON JOYNER), with some lyrics written by his own six-year-old son. In a rare chance to see him perform outside of Europe, Youngs will be playing select US dates in 2013, including the Hopscotch Festival in Durham, NC, and at the ISSUE Project Room in New York." -Ba Da Bing.
