Artist: DELTA 5
Title: Singles & Sessions 1979-81
Format: CD
Label: Kill Rock Stars
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
2006 release. "Part of the Leeds/UK art/music scene in the late 70s that launched The Gang of Four and The Mekons, Delta 5 was signed to Rough Trade after only a few months in existence, and released their first single recording, Mind Your Own Business/Now That Youve Gone in 1979. No less an authority than legendary BBC host and producer John Peel received an advance copy of the single and played it twice that same night. He then requested that the band do a Sessions gig for him and the band was officially on its way. Relentless gigging with The Gang of Four, Echo and the Bunnymen, B52s, Specials, Teardrop Explodes, and U2 put the band on the map worldwide. They continued touring and recording until various members departed in late 1981, when they recorded one last single and then broke up for good in 1982." - Kill Rock Stars.

Artist: ESSENTIAL LOGIC
Title: Fanfare In The Garden
Format: Double CD
Label: Kill Rock Stars
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Essential Logics old and new music is fresh, complex, and irresistible. Indirectly, via the legacy of the post-punk indie scene and particularly the role women took for themselves in it, Lora and her band/brand name changed the world. If youve never heard this incredible group, you have definitely been hearing echoes (Bjork springs to mind, unavoidably, but so do the new no-wavers of New York) for the past twenty years. And now you get the real thing." - Kill Rock Stars

Artist: GRASS WIDOW
Title: Past Time
Format: LP
Label: Kill Rock Stars
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
""Influenced by similarly all-female punk and post-punk acts like The Neo Boys and Kleenex, Grass Widow also note Roy Woods The Move and The Kinks as a major source of inspiration. This can all be heard on Past Time along with the three-part harmonies, complex arrangements and odd chord progressions. Grass Widow is also influenced by a legacy of women who have paved the way through their music and politics. Their collaborative songwriting process, the fact that they dont have a front person and that they all equally contribute to the work of the band speaks to this philosophy. In addition, they take the opportunity as an all female band to bring attention to the roles of spectacle and spectator in their scene and make a conscious effort to play shows where women are involved." -Kill Rock Stars
