Sir Richard Bishop - Fingering The Devil (Special Edition)

I can't believe one of my favorite records of the decade is out of print. Here's the self-released version with some extra tracks, put out on CDR after the initial LP edition sold out in, like, six seconds.

Half Japanese - 10 (10) Watts Live cassette

This tape was put out in two different versions with a different track order but all the same material. Stunning and noisy documentation of some great and long gone gig (gigs?) around the time of Sing No Evil. Probably my favorite period of the band overall. I really wish Drag City would reissue more of their early stuff! Like this!

Angus MacLise

After a spate of archival releases around ten years ago, the work of this former Velvet Underground drummer has faded back into obscurity. As far as I know, all four of his official releases are now out of print. Here's my favorite ones:

Invasion Of Thunderbolt Pagoda

The Cloud Doctrine disc 1

The Cloud Doctrine disc 2

Jad Fair - The Zombies Of Mora-Tau

A real high point of cracked noisy insanity in the extensive discography of Mr. Fair, this 1982 EP was his solo debut.

Happy Day Of The Dead!
