Title: A La Piscina
Format: CD
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Aias are Gaia, Laia and Miriam. Gaia sings and plays guitar. Laia sings and plays drums and Miriam sings and plays bass. And the three together they try to make songs for anyone else to sing. Pop with distortion, lots of "oooos" and vocal harmonies in in a cave with endless ceilings sung in their native Catalan (not Spanish, mind you!) Aias began as a birthday party band and by surprise ended up being a band for real, or at least thats their current intention. The desire to win in the fight against the instrument itself, the need to shout a bit during the week, a Vivian Girls concert during the Primavera Sound Festival and the providential intervention of Cristian Pallejà (Nisei, Sedaiós) lead to a home made recording in a village lost in Catalonia and an unexpected winter signing with the New York Label, Captured tracks. "A La Piscina" is their first full-length release, for which they will be touring the US in the Fall." - Captured Tracks.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The story of Beach Fossils starts with frontman Dustin Payseur writing and recording songs for their debut self-titled LP out of his tiny Brooklyn apartment in the Fall of 2009. His recent move from North Carolina that year had left him with a sense of longing to reconnect with his past and the lush open landscape he left behind. During that year Dustin experimented with innovative methods of self-recording (using a Tascam four-track and Logic Pro) and composing. He drew his inspiration from improvisational jazz, classical and shoegaze artists, such as Anthony Braxton, pre-Stereolab project McCarthy and Giuseppe Tartini. Playing all his own instruments (keyboard, drums, bass, guitar), he soon emerged with a shimmering array of sun drenched pop songs. Dustin eventually linked creative forces with John Pena (bass), Sennott Burke (guitar) and Cole Smith (drums) who joined the band and helped collaborate on the songs Wide Awake and Gathering. The full bands immediate chemistry and unforgettable stage presence radiate with a wild, youthful-sincerity. Beach Fossils offers warm and inviting melodies that evoke the haunted sounds of another era: straightforward guitar riffs, a kaleidoscope of psychedelic rhythms, and distant, faded vocals all come together to make the perfect soundtrack to an endless summer afternoon. After hearing their demo last in the spring of 2009, Mike Sniper signed Beach Fossils to Captured Tracks." -Captured Tracks. Regular pressing.

"Mike Sniper never meant to be one of Brooklyns ‘most mysterious musicians. Things just ended up that way, as the singer/multi-instrumentalist released a steady stream of limited singles and EPs on such reputable indie labels as Sacred Bones, HoZac and Woodsist. Not to mentions Snipers own Captured Tracks imprint—a carefully-curated roster thats grown as quickly as Blank Dogs itself, thanks to such buzz-stirring releases as Dum Dum Girls debut EP and recent records by Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing and Minks. “The anonymous thing happened in the very beginning because I didnt even have a backing band to play shows with,” explains Sniper. “It led to some ridiculous rumors—that I wear a mask onstage, that Im Stephen Malkmus…funny stuff.” Another common misconception about Blank Dogs is that Sniper wanted his early recordings—starting with the speaker-crawling cold sweat cuts of 2007s Diana the Herald EP—to sound like a lo-fi gathering of queasy vocals, bruised beats and Chinese water torture chords. The truth is much simpler than that: Blank Dogs murkier mixes were purely a matter of having limited means. Things started to change around his On Two Sides (Troubleman, 2008) album, however, as rare slabs of Blank Dogs vinyl landed on the eBay circuit and influential blogs (The FADER, 20jazzfunkgreats) feverishly posted brand new MP3s. Between that cult following and the continued success of Captured Tracks, Sniper was finally able to buy better equipment and develop his sound into an expansive mix of clear (The Cure, Joy Division) and cryptic (The Go-Betweens, Neil Young) influences—a decidedly Blank Dogs direction that touches upon everything from the spare, sparkling synths of Frances cold-wave movement to the jangly guitars of classic indie rock. All of this progress was made with one particular record in mind: this falls Land and Fixed LP, a tight 12-song effort that took about a year and 13 scrapped tracks (some of which ended up on the Phrases EP) to complete. The result isnt just a clearer recording; its like going from stolen cable on a 15-inch set to a wall-swallowing HDTV. A headphone listen, in other words—literally mixed on the subway to enhance widescreen details like the heat-seeking hooks of “Blurred Tonight,” the elegantly-layered arrangements of “Out the Door,” and the moonlit synth melodies of “Elevens.” As it turns out, the next phase of Blank Dogs is an instrumental Woodsist record in the vein of “Elevens.” Sniper says hes “pretty psyched for it,” a dance 12-inch for Italians Do It Better and sessions with Blank Dogs live trio, which is rounded out by Craig Mileski and Pamela Garavano-Coolbaugh. “Were definitely more of a "band" now,” insists Sniper, although one thing hasnt changed: he still isnt Stephen Malkmus.

"...Occasionally calling in collaborators from the likes of Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls and Times New Viking, Phrases, Snipers latest EP in a long succession of vinyl-only releases, sees him going it alone for the most part. Indeed, its hard to envisage anyone else being allowed sufficient mindspace to create alongside Sniper, such is the vast propensity of ideas that fill the four tracks here. While the opening electro-tinged robotics of Heat And Depression resembles a Crystal Castles outtake, Sniper mumbling "Can you see yourself?" with surreptitious repetition over a distorted funky bassline, its on Phrases other three tracks that his more obscure influences start to take hold. Blurred Tonight takes The Cramps danse macabre schtick through the same backdoor as The Horrors managed so successfully last year, except with even more menacing vocal assertions courtesy of that man Sniper. His voice then gets the heavily reverbed treatment on Racing Backwards, a Cure-inspired number that sees the opulent Sniper make the offer "stay to the end" which becomes increasingly difficult to refuse as verse usurps chorus. Despite Blank Dogs NYC dancefloor tendencies, theres something inadvertently English about these compositions, suitably realised in the closing End Of Summer which takes Depeche Modes early Roland Jupiter-led blueprint before mashing it into a collage of post-punk ambience, beats and all..." - from Drowned In Sound.

"Bona Dish were a scratchy pop punk group from Hertfordshire villages, brought together by their love of the Velvets, Supremes and each other. They were cool, handsome and gorgeous. The songs are simple but at the same time complex. The two girls, two boys line-up added a tension that was both sexual and musically fragile. You felt it might all fall apart any second but it rarely did. After their cassette in a tube ploy worked for John Peel play, the band released a cassette on InPhaze and disbanded not long after. Collected here is a rediscovered gem showcasing the zest and spontaneity that gripped the UK DiY scene of the time, standing up to their contemporaries like Television Personalities, The Homosexuals and Marine Girls. This release marks the first vinyl and cd release for BonaDish, their complete recorded output compiled and newly mastered." -Captured Tracks.

Bona Dishs avowedly DIY aesthetic was coupled with a genuine pop flair, and songs like 8am stand comparison with the very best independent music of the era.” - Fact Magazine

"Lol Elliot and Martin Newell, who together formed the legendary lo-fi band The Cleaners From Venus met in the small town of Wivenhoe, southeast England at the turn of 1980s. Newell, a rock ringer and part-time kitchen porter whod left his band the previous summer, and Elliot, a drummer and former hippy traveler, had much in common. They shared a love of sunny 1960s pop music, punk rock and musical comedy. Neither Elliot nor Newell cared much for any kind of musical rule book, bother were dismayed by the new right-wing politics which had taken over their country. Both were in their twenties, had time on their hands and were keen to create something new. "The Cleaners From Venus became one of the most influential bands of the early 80s. Blow Away Your Troubles was originally released in 1981 and only offered on cassette until now. The influential album has been completely remastered and on vinyl for the first time.

Title: Living With Victoria
Format: LP
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
“The Summer of 1985 was a rather pleasant one for Martin Newell. Now past 30, and sick of being at odds with the London music industry, he decided to give up – not music exactly – but any attempt to make a living from it. Though Newell and his new musical partner Giles Smith continued to casually record and Under Wartime Conditions continued to pick up good reviews, including one in the UKs Sound magazine, there was no intent to continue. During this sporadic period of recording that the Cleaners came to, quite nonchalantly, is the release of the cassette Living With Victoria Grey.
After sending the nearly unmarked cassette to a few fanzines and selling the cassettes for $2 apiece (or even giving them away), Newell once again forgot about music until a young man named Andy McQueen offered Newell an interesting deal: though there would be little money, he and Smith could record a high quality Cleaners record without the interference of a producer. The two began working on "Going to England. Although 7 of the songs from Living With Victoria Grey would appear on the album, the cassette was all but forgotten, the only master copy having been lost. It wasnt until almost 10 years later that Newell was approached by a man hed never met before who said, "You sent me this many years ago and told me to look after it. I did. I thought youd like it back now." It was the master copy of Living With Victoria Grey!
Over 20 years after its initial quiet release, Captured Tracks is pleased to present Living With Victoria Grey on vinyl for the first time as part of the final installment of the Cleaners from Venus collection.” - Captured Tracks.

Lol Elliot, the other Cleaner, came back from time to time to time to help, but in effect, Midnight Cleaners-although not entirely a Newell solo project- was recognizably the last of the original Cleaners From Venus albums. It was also the end of the first chapter of their story. "This album, previously only released on cassette, has been completely remastered. Midnight Cleaners hold two of the bands biggest hits, "Only A Shadow" and "Factory Boy." These two songs and more are now on vinyl and CD for the first time. This release brings about a new way to the iconic band." -Captured Tracks.

Title: My Back Wages
Format: LP
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Considered the last ever Cleaners From Venus release, My Back Wages is comprised primarily of songs written in 1992 while Martin Newell was quarantined with the Chicken Pox. While some songs made it onto Newells The Greatest Living Englishman, many fell into obscurity, never to be released. That is until some 8 years later when long time Cleaners supporters JAR Music Germany, a small DIY label, released a collection entitled My Back Wages. Newell claims to have had no knowledge of the release, but the punning title of the album has his paw prints all over it.
Newell spent the years between 1992 and 2000 focusing on his writing, poetry, and gardening, and when the release surfaced in 2000, he had little recollection of even sending the songs to his friends at JAR. When Newell heard it, he was surprised to find that musical additions had been made to the tracks, which polished up his spontaneously and sometimes sloppy recording style. Newell felt touched that anyone would be interested, or even care about something which hed regarded as a rag-bag of demoes. Conversely, as a natural musical anarchist, the idea that anyone, anywhere, considered that they knew better than he did annoyed him.
This version of My Back Wages as issued by Captured Tracks is Martin Newells own "producers cut" of oddities, out-takes and "orphan songs." "Crane Drivers," for instance, was made after a friend with a brand new Roland U20 keyboard lent it to Newell for two days, challenging him to make a complete song using only the sounds contained within its pre-sets. "Haunt Your House" was a demo written for The Damned, who were short of songs for an album at that time. It was never used.
Over 20 years later, Captured Tracks is thrilled to give Newell the chance to release this material on his own terms and put the Cleaners to rest once and for all.” - Captured Tracks.

Title: Number Thirteen
Format: LP
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
“Following the release of Living With Victoria Grey, Martin Newell, under the Cleaners from Venus moniker, once again began taking his musical career seriously, releasing a few singles and two vinyl LPs. After busking and loosely recording some demos, Cleaners from Venus signed to the independent label Deltic Records. Previously, Newell and Nelson gained quite a bit of media attention for their guitar driven rock by refusing to tour by anything but bicycle as the Brotherhood of Lizards. This generated a lot of attention for the band, but unfortunately Nelson left for other adventures before it could fully come to fruition.
What we find in Number Thirteen is a transitional period for Newell. Intended as a demo, the cassette received positive feedback, but ultimately led nowhere. At 37-years-old, Martin Newell reflected upon the almost two decades of hard work and musical activity which had led him to this point. One morning he got up and began to coolly put his instruments away. He turned his small upstairs music studio into a room for books and writing. He decided to turn to the life of gardening that hed always thought upon.
However, the simple life of a gardener would not last long. Newell soon found renowned with his poetry and writing, penning a semi-regular column for Londons Independent, appearing on many TV and radio programs and publishing several collections. Finally, in Autumn of 1992, through another series of connections and coincidences, he was asked if he would like to make a solo album, with none other than XTCs Andy Partridge in the producers chair. The first thing that he did, before dusting off his long abandoned instruments, was send Andy Partridge a handful of songs from the Cleaners from Venus Number Thirteen cassette. Number Thirteen is one of the many stepping stone releases that have led Martin Newell and the Cleaners From Venus through their storied career. Available for the first time on vinyl, and seeing its first wide release, Captured Tracks is pleased to give you Number Thirteen.” - Captured Tracks.

The biggest surprise however came from the more conservative Melody Maker, whose own Patrick Humpries gave the Cleaners project a glowing review in that paper.

"Beautiful, 3xCD gatefold with booklet including album bios written by Newell himself and never-before-released photos. Lol Elliott and Martin Newell, who together formed the legendary lo-fi band Cleaners from Venus met in the small town of Wivenhoe, southeast England at the turn of 1980s. Newell, a rock singer and part-time kitchen porter whod left his band the previous summer, and Elliott, a drummer and former hippy traveller, had much in common. They shared a love of sunny 1960s pop music, punk rock and musical comedy. Neither Elliott nor Newell cared much for any kind of musical rule book, both were dismayed by the new right -wing politics which had now taken over their country. Both , were in their twenties, had time on their hands and were keen to create something new." -Captured Tracks.

"As the frontman for the already prolific Fresh & Onlys, it seems impossible that theres yet even more songs coming from the well of Mr. Cohen. More surprising is that they maintain a high standard of quality. "The Two Sides of Tim Cohen" LP came and went in the blink of an eye. Recorded after his stint in Black Fiction and before his current set-up in the Fresh & Onlys, "Two Sides.." was a fresh dose of pure outsider pop with drum machines and keyboards. For a follow up, "Laugh Tracks" finds Tim in a more fleshed out full-bodied approach, complete with horn arrangements. These are personal songs from a highly gifted songwriter and were happy to make them available. Tim does his own art for all of his solo material, you can find more on: http://www.timcohen.com" - Captured Tracks.

Title: Magic Trick
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Tim Cohens third solo release, Magic Trick, finds him still fighting off the demons of a restless musical mind. In the 12 songs collected here, Tim traverses a wide range of conflicting moods while somehow always reenforcing his songs with messages of hope and positivity. "Dont Give Up", "I am never going to die", and "Flower" are perfect examples of the upbeat melancholy that has defined his solo work to this point. Joined by fellow Soul searchers James Kim (Kelley Stoltz band), Noelle Cahill, and Alicia Vanden Huevel (Aislers Set), along with other supportive friends, Cohen has taken long musical strides on this third LP, in terms of arrangement, recording, and overall risk-taking. Recorded at home on the reliable tascam 388 during breaks from a busy touring schedule with The Fresh & Onlys, "Magic Trick" captures almost every moment of solitude, longing, and wonderment that passed through Tims foggy mind throughout his transient 2010. Accompanied by a double 7" which includes songs from the same fruitful period, "Magic Trick" is a record for all seasons, and should be listened to in the earliest morning." - Captured Tracks.

Or you could go back to the UK and talk about Sarah Records, though there⿿s often something weirder woven into the compositions.

"Earth Dies Burning was formed in 1981 in the San Fernando Valley by a group of friends ranging in age from 10 to 14: the Karlsen brothers (Jeff and Matt), Brad Laner, and the Nachmann brothers (Guy and Ron). Their success in landing gigs at the time can be traced to Brads precociousness (he had sat in with Vox Pop, Nervous Gender and others), Matts natural talent for promotion, and the extraordinary openness of the Los Angeles punk/post-punk “underground” scene at that time. It seems that only now has the time ripened, dear listener; let the sweet smell of singed terrestrial morbidity flow from the valley of the bored teenager to your ears.

"With the obvious homage the name implies, youd expect Hanoi Janes to be a group of riot grrrl angnsty types, displaced in time by about 20 odd years. Having taken on the nickname given to Jane Fonda in the 70s because of her anti-war stance on Vietnam, these girls would be all bent up about, well you know, stuff. Youd expect that, but youd be wrong. It is in fact primarily the work of one guy from Sachen, Germany �?? Oliver Scharf. But then Hanoi Janes album, Year of Panic, is able to inspire all kinds of misconceptions. Name of the band aside, would you expect a German guy (whos a bit handy with an eight-track) to produce a series of beautifully lo-fi, sub two-minute, surf-pop tracks, full of buzzing guitar and bubblegum spirit. Maybe �?? maybe not. But thats just what Scharf has done. The sound is distinctly garage, reminiscent of a 70s surf sound, and like The 5. 6. 7. 8s, Hanoi Janes are able to launch into the genre with the luxury of being removed from the scene itself. Tracks like opener, The Boys Are Out and Beach Kids are unashamedly infectious, utilising catchy hooks, hand claps and the odd Ooo ooo ooo to great effect. The production is fuzzy, but that only adds to the overall charm of the album. Because charming is what it is, as Hanoi Janes have packed Year of Panic with some real gems. Summer of Panic offers something tinted with psychedelic sounds; Our Lives could have been an early track by The Strokes had they been influenced by the Californian sun rather than the New York shadows; Good Bone is a track which can only be performed if there are several oversized surf-boards nearby. Year of Panic is lo-fi, scuzzy garage surf-pop at its finest and it deserves to be the sound-track of your summer" -Bowlegs.

"Following up their excellent Wierd Records debut LP "Dust on Common" and a limited European split-12", Led Er Est return with a new 12" EP, the aptly named "May," their second release on C/T. The trio describe the record as a ".. collection of theme-based songs, almost like a dark sci fi film soundtrack..." The songs were written at various points some were written on the long drives over their last European tour. Side A opens with the dancefloor friendly "Lonsome XOXO", "a song about a girl obsessed with death" while "Plants" contains a cosmic disco bassline and use of 12-string guitar, showing their influences fall outside the narrow margins of electronic music. This is further evidenced by "Madi la Lune" a nod to British underground songwriter Bill Fay. Side B gets darker and heavier with the apocalyptic sci fi synth punk opener "Opto 5." This mood continues into "May" and ends with the instrumental brain melter "Drosophilia Melanogaster." "May" is available for digital and vinyl release and is a precursor to their forthcoming LP on the brilliant Sacred Bones label." - Captured Tracks.

"The McTells formed in 1985 in Hertford UK. With a foot in the shambolic and aggressive sounds of The Fall and Swell Maps, they noisily stood out from a lot of their more soft C-86/noisepop contemporaries at the time. Initially a 4 piece comprising Paul Rixon on guitar and vocal, Bill on guitar, Stuart on bass, Mark Flunder from the Television Personalaties on stand up drums. Bill later left to form The Big Paintings but the rest of the band continued as a three piece releasing records on Pauls own Bi-Joopiter label. If you dont consider the 80s cassette culture a true DiY form of post-punk folk art, you really need to investigate the Bi-Joopiter discography. Comprising of painstakingly hand colored, bagged, stamped and xeroxed artwork, it truly does lift the medium of cassette-as-art that has carried on into todays aesthetic nether-regions of the resurged cassette culture movement. It is with that in mind that we at Captured Tracks, with the aid of Paul Rixon himself, have done our best to try to create as close a fascimile as possible to those first two McTells cassette reissues on Bi-Joopiter. Consider it a teaser for a more complete vinyl/CD reissue in the near future, we find these releases stand the test of time both on a musical and aesthetic level.

Ostensibly we could say this song is reactionary: abandoning the good vibes and surf jams of the warm months of 09 in favor of something colder. Rigid bass lines over icy, high-register synth whine.

“Since before he was even able to play an instrument, Martin Newell was messing around with home-recordings. Having grown up in the Far East, Newell returned to his home of England at age 13 with just a little 3-inch spool tape-recorder and his first guitar. At age 14 he wrote his first song, not even knowing any chords. His song writing continued through is teens and into his 20s, when he purchased a Sony reel-to-reel recorder and 12 string guitar. It is this early songwriting that led him working with a wide variety of musicians, recording in beautiful studios and forming his many projects such as Cleaners from Venus and Brotherhood of Lizards. But it was this early songwriting and recording that led him to find that he was happiest when recording by himself, with minimal equipment. As Newell often says, "Actually, I preferred the demos."
Having upgraded himself from reel-to-reel to a Tascam Pocketstudio and digitizing some of his archaic recording knowledge, Newell set out to begin home recording again. The tracks on this collection run from 2010 to mid 2014. Some are recordings loosely based on movie themes and soundtracks for imaginary films. Some are instrumentals from a collection called The Late District, while others are from a recent album Return to Bohemia, which saw a small release in England. This recent resurgence in creative strength, along with the success and newfound popularity of Cleaners from Venus, have all led up to Teatime Assortment. Think of it as a "Best of New Newell." A true wordsmith, Newell himself has put simply why one might be compelled to take a listen here: "If youre the sort of person who likes this kind of thing, then this is the sort of thing youll probably like.” - Captured Tracks.

Having upgraded himself from reel-to-reel to a Tascam Pocketstudio and digitizing some of his archaic recording knowledge, Newell set out to begin home recording again. The tracks on this collection run from 2010 to mid 2014. Some are recordings loosely based on movie themes and soundtracks for imaginary films. Some are instrumentals from a collection called The Late District, while others are from a recent album Return to Bohemia, which saw a small release in England. This recent resurgence in creative strength, along with the success and newfound popularity of Cleaners from Venus, have all led up to Teatime Assortment. Think of it as a "Best of New Newell." A true wordsmith, Newell himself has put simply why one might be compelled to take a listen here: "If youre the sort of person who likes this kind of thing, then this is the sort of thing youll probably like.” - Captured Tracks.

Artist: OUTSIDERS, THE
Title: Close Up
Format: LP
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: United States
Price: $13.00
“The Outsiders, hailing from Wimbledon, England, were one of the many bands to rise up through the UK’s punk explosion of the late 70s. Citing the Velvet Underground as their primary influence, Fronted by Adrian Borland, who went on to form the seminal post-punk band The Sound following the demise of the band, The Outsiders gained exposure through opening for acts such as The Jam and The Vibrators. Bob Lawrence (bass) and Adrian Janes (a/k/a Jan, drums) rounded out the band.
The Outsiders were the first UK punk band to self-release a full album -- their first LP Calling on Youth) --on their own Raw Edge label. With Close Up, the band matured and further developed into the punk sound that was clearly a gateway to Borlands work with The Sound. The band were clearly influenced by the Detroit rock sound of The Stooges and were even joined on stage by Iggy Pop himself for their rendition of "Raw Power". Long out of print on vinyl, this reissue provides a great look into not only the development of the legendary Adrian Borland, but also a look into the transitional phase of UK rock from classic to punk. Available on vinyl only in a run of 1,000.” - Captured Tracks.

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The Servants was an indie band formed in 1985 in Hayes, Middlesex, England by singer and songwriter David Westlake. Their brand of the mid-80s jangly guitar-pop was intellectual, refined and classy as opposed to the shambolic and noisy lo-fi scene heralded by the C-86 compilation they would appear on and be connected with during their active career. After lots of lineup changes (including past/future members of The Auteurs and The Housemartins) and a string of great singles and one great LP (Disinterest) the band called it a day in 1991. Around this time, huge fan and Belle & Sebastian frontmn Stuart Murdoch was trying to locate David Westlake in the hopes of forming a band with him, before launching Belle in his school class instead. In 2006, the great Cherry Red label finally pulled together the unreleased tracks and singles into the CD Reserved from which this vinyl-only compilation is pulled. Combined with a copy of Disinterest (if you can find one) this collection is the essential vinyl document of a great band from a great era of music that can easily be thought of as what would be their debut LP. Includes mp3 download card." -Captured Tracks.

"Days Of Arrest" strays from the glossy veneer of their last full length and finds a much colder, hyper-focused territory than all previous work." - Captured Tracks.

"Soft Healer began in 2008 in an attempt by Marie Butcher and Will Slack to cover Suicide songs on pedal steel and clarinet. The duo swiftly failed at this and decided instead to play music with a more forgiving set-up. They began playing bass and guitar and got a drum machine; they quickly found that all attempts to reconcile the stark, percussive landscape of Colossal Youth with a Staple Singers group hug yielded something that was distinctly neither, but went with it anyway. After their first show, Soft Healer became a trio with Sara Berger joining on sax and organ. A few shows later they were an even four with Nick Decarmine playing drums. At this point the band collectively owned all of the first nine Funkadelic albums." -Captured Tracks

“Captured Tracks is pleased to present the Stockholm Monsters full catalogue in this special vinyl only reissue. Formed in Manchester in 1980, Stockholm Monsters were signed with Factory Records in 1981. Discovered at a show in Manchester when the band was still teens, New Order’s Peter Hook took the young band under his wing and went on to produce the majority of the band’s catalogue, under the alias Be Music. Their first single, “Fairy Tales”, didn’t appear until 1982, due to the tardiness of the songs producer Martin Hannett. Drawing early praise from influential music magazine’s NME and Melody Maker, along with touring with New Order, the band seemed set for success. However through numerous line-up changes, delays in recording and the onslaught of bands such as the Happy Mondays the band never quite hit their mark.
During their time with the Factory Records, Stockholm Monsters released one LP (Alma Mater) and a series of 7”s and singles including a scathing take down of Factory’s primary indie label rival, entitled “How Corrupt is Rough Trade”. Available in a limited run, this complete collection gives new light to one of Factory’s lost artists.” - Captured Tracks.

“In May of 1979, UK native Martin Newell was 26 years old and in transition. He’d just split up with his girlfriend and moved out of the Colchester house they’d shared for four years. A month later, Newell also stepped down as the singer for Gypp, a band he’d been in for three years. Though they had a great live reputation and a strong regional following, Newell, with some misgivings, felt their music was out-of-step with the times. That same year, he turned down the offer of a literature degree course at university as well. Why bother? He had a part-time washing-up job, a guitar and a room in a rambling, boho house. He could just tear the whole thing down and start again. And so he did.

That summer, friend and recording engineer Dave Hoser heard some of Newell’s demos and offered to help record them on his 4-track equipment, dubbed "The Octopus Mobile." With some of Newell’s former optimism and energy restored, he put together a new band: the then 23-year-old drummer Michael Stix Natkanski, former Gypp bass player Tony Phillips and Braintree guitarist Malcolm Burch (a/k/a Max Volume). Calling themselves The Stray Trolleys, the music here predates Newells work as The Cleaners from Venus and the bulk of the sessions on their sole album, Barricades and Angels, were recorded at Octopus Studios during spring and summer of 1980. Amazingly, although they had little to no rehearsals, all backing tracks were recorded fairly quickly and everyone got on well, especially in the pub afterwards.

So, whats the story here? A few youngish unknowns got together in a little home-built country studio and recorded a handful of songs for an album that eventually emerged on a DIY cassette? They werent perfect, but there is something very special about this collection. The music captures a time. Just listen. Remastered. CD and LP Download includes bonus track, “Mrs. Killer.” - Captured Tracks.

"The UK-based band, composed of Billy Easter on bass, Sarah Datblygu on drums and Rivka Gillieron on vocals and guitar, excel in creating atmospheric, erratic sounds with a jaunty disregard for anything mundane . . . Wetdog count a variety of top notch influences on Frauhaus!, citing Micachu, Syd Barrett and Euros Childs, with legendary graphic novel illustrator Robert Crumb and 1979 cult British horror flick The Wicker Man also flagged, the latters flashing play between gentle pastoral and darker reveals most evident on the twittering bird song and thick, stop-start chords of Trees Fall. Though each of the albums fourteen songs has a disjointed style and rhythm of its own, they bob and weave into each other with a connecting sense of joyful weirdness, darkly irreverent rather than pretentious; menacing at times, but in a deliriously fun way. Fabulously uncompromising, its futile to attempt any generic labelling here; Wetdog delight in merging styles, setting keyboard and guitar melodies clashing gloriously against stubborn basslines, beginning songs in one manner only to change all the rules come the chorus. These helter-skelter tactics mean Frauhaus! has a kind of anarchic spontaneity to it, where the ground could shift at any moment. Its an exciting atmosphere that evokes the tumultuous ethos of The Slits, made even more potent by the darker, Halloween-style motifs of The Need, that cover the corners of their songs with spiderwebs and vampire fangs." - Captured Tracks.
