    Chrome (Pre-Order)

    First Pressing Of 1500 Numbered Copies On Silver Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter

    Long before groups like Oasis and Blur provoked cross-Atlantic media hype, Catherine Wheel were evolving the Britpop style that typifies the genre's distinction. With the release of Chrome in 1993, they advanced their dreamy pop to the rock sound.

    It's not like Catherine Wheel established their sound with Chrome, either. Ferment [MOVLP1880] was considered their supposed magnum opus, with the extremely successful lead-single Black Metallic. Chrome is more appropriately described as a perfection of their established sound, as the band's metallic shoegaze is refined in terms of both intensity and melodic-content. Every element that made Ferment so memorable and enjoyable is amplified in this release. Rob Dickenson sings with perfect tenor appeal on tracks like Kill Rhythm and Crank, highlighting the personal temperaments which shape the album.

    There are quite a few album covers out there that flawlessly encapsulate the atmosphere and/or mood of the music contained. Chrome has one of those covers. It's design came from the collective Hipgnosis, who gained international prestige for the cover of Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd.

    Sit back, listen and experience this album. You might feel emotions you didn't even know you had.

    Blood On The Moon

    180 Gram LP + printed inner with lyrics and bonus CD of the album.


    For this 1981 release, Edge and Creed brought in brothers John and Hilary
    Stench on drums and bass. The brothers hailed from the extremely popular
    local new wave band, Pearl Harbour & the Explosions, formed in 1978 in San
    Francisco. This new rhythm section can definitely be heard, making Chrome
    a bit more danceable‟ if you will and the first inklings of that driving
    industrial metal beat can be heard. Tracks like excellent Perfumed Metal
    are a perfect example of this transformation.
    It was also in 1981 that Chrome received an offer to perform live in Italy from a group of Italian fans.
    Chrome had never appeared live before, but unbelievably they accepted the Italian gig and flew to Bologna,
    Italy to play their first ever live concert. The live instrumental track included here is from that legendary
    Italian concert, on July 20, 1981.

    To truly understand the color and shape of Nice Nice, you must really see them live. Only then will you realize that every sound heard on this record, every intricate ployrhythmic layer is LIVE. There are no overdubs, and there are only two people in the band. But if you haven't been lucky enough to see them yet, then bear in mind those facts when throwing this one into your headphones. Born in Olympia, WA and now calling Portland, OR their home, guitarist Jason Buehler and percussionist Mark Shirazi meticulously warp hard funk, psych, soul, dub, angular rock and no-wave noise into a mechanical beast that can take you from dream to dance in 30 seconds flat. The instrumentation is relatively simple: guitar and drums. But it's the endless tap-dancing of effects pedals and rock solid dub beats that make every moment more magical than the last. Having played with everyone from Black Dice to Cex to Gold Chains - and thoroughly blowing their minds all the same - Nice Nice are that rare band that seems to equally appeal to the bedroom stoners and Friday night hipsters. Intimidating only in their technical prowess, Nice Nice don't smash their equipment, they smash their stereotypes. Bring it on.

    Chrome Cactus


    "A guitar-grinding, drum-smashing desert-crawler,"
    -Spin


    "Presents a desert crawl and barrage of collages that carry
    across a free play of images and symbols set in sequence
    to the sounds"
    -Impose


    In Chrome Cactus, The Young have created
    a HUGE sounding, timeless rock album that
    reinforces and revitalizes everything that is
    great about American Rock Music in 2014.


    Taking influence from early ZZ Top, Link Wray,
    Lungfish, Dead Moon - Chrome Cactus is a ball
    of power and controlled feedback disguised as
    ten of the catchiest songs you'll hear this year.
    Chrome Cactus is a far darker version of Austin's
    The Young than ever before. The breezy
    optimism of their earlier albums has been
    switched out for sinister, creeping dread in both
    the lyrics and music.


    The rhythm section of drummer Ryan Maloney
    and new bassist Lucas Wedow drive a heavy
    foundation for guitarists Hans Zimmerman
    and Kyle Edwards, who have reached dizzying
    new heights. Expertly produced by fellow
    sonic assassin Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses,
    The Fucking Champs),    Chrome Cactus is the
    moment where Zimmerman's vocal delivery
    is perfectly matched with the skillful, intuitive
    interplay, which at this point is now fully realized.

    X-Rated Fairy Tales (On Sale)

    Recorded with a fairly straightforward backing band (bassist Mark Duran, synth-player John Carlan, and drummer/keyboardist Bill Roth), Creed's first solo album still turned out to be something touched with the unmistakable mark of Chrome. The production was often murky and strange, effects processing was everywhere, Creed's vocals sounded on the edge of sanity, and, of course, the guitars. Still creating one massive rock surge after another, with feedback piled on top of feedback and, likely enough, more pedals than anyone had ever seen at any one time, Creed showed once again why his guitar-god reputation exists in the first place. That his first solo album continued the true vibe of Chrome where Damon Edge's own use and abuse of the name made him a laughing stock probably wasn't that surprising in the end. Creed himself thought of this album as a more stripped-down, less stony affair, but it's mostly a matter of splitting hairs from an outside perspective. Considering that the title track itself is an acoustic guitar-led acid folk number with appropriate crumbling guitar noises in the background and post-hippie vibes everywhere, one has to wonder what Creed considers to be really stoned music. The most crisp the album gets is with the rhythm section, which often has a good full-bodied punch to it (and if anything sounds a bit like the work of Can, one of Chrome's inspirations). There's a little less stuff about alien takeovers and lurking gods outside the solar system and the like -- there's even a semi-cover of the old Chuck Berry classic Johnny B. Goode -- but then again one almost-dancefloor number is called Sex Voodoo Venus, so go figure. Showdown is also a pretty focused, rhythmic number notable for chunky riffs rather than extended soloing, while the You don't like me/I don't like you lyrics are pretty funny (and maybe about Edge -- and who could blame him?).

    Shabazz Palaces: Live at Third Man Records


    Live Record, Recorded Direct-To-cetate In January Of 2015


    Shabazz Palaces is Ishmael Butler (Digible Planets) and Tendai Maraire, and their Lese Majesty was easily the most spun record on the Third Man office turntable in 2014. Our admiration reached new heights when we had the honor of hosting the Seattle-based duo for a live performance and direct-to-acetate recording in our Nashville Blue Room last year. In Third Man consigliere Ben Swank's own words, ''Shabazz Palaces' obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering its own sonic boom.''


    Ishmael and Tendai announced recently that they will be supporting Radiohead on their upcoming LA dates, and the group released a new video featuring footage from the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA's Johnson Space Center, and the Hubble and Cassini space missions for their track ''Dawn In Luxor'' just last week, We agree... you'd better go ahead and watch here.

    Bigger And Deffer


    Limited Edition Anniversary Cover


    Bigger and Deffer (BAD), is LL Cool J's follow up album toRadio. Two classic singles were a product of this album, I'm Bad and I Need Love, the first
    commercially successful rap ballad. BIGGER AND DEFFER was a complete body of work and as a whole and was a big chart success, blowing the notion
    of a sophomore jinx right out of the water.

    Lese Majesty

    Herein bumps and soars Lese Majesty, the new sonic action of Shabazz
    Palaces. Honed and primal, chromed and primo. A unique and glorified
    offering into our ever-uniforming musical soundscape. Lese Majesty is
    a beatific war cry, born of a spell, acknowledging that sophistication and
    the instinctual are not at odds; Indeed an undoing of the lie of their
    disparate natures.


    Lese Majesty is not a launching pad for the group's fan base increasing
    propaganda. It is a series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared.
    A dare to dive deep into Shabazz Palaces sounds, vibrations unfettered.
    A dope-hex thrown from the compartments that have artificially contained
    us all and hindered our sublime collusion.


    These reveries were sent to Palaceer Lazaro and Fly Guy 'Dai in the
    year of gun beat battles in excess; In a succession of days, whilst walking
    in dreams and in varied transcendental states .(every minute of every
    day is filled with observation and composition. In action). Songs are
    committed and gathered by robots at Protect and Exalt Labs, a Black
    Space in Seattle,Washington.


    The visual features of Lese Majesty are resultant of the gleanings of
    fellow Constellationaire, Nep Sidhu.


    The Black Constellation squads up, protects and exalts the messages
    within, and colludes accordingly. We thank you.

    Introducing the Rega ISIS flagship CD player


    We are very proud to introduce the 7th generation of Rega CD player.


    A product manufactured to the highest achievable quality inside and out, Rega's own unique CD technology, genuine black chrome lid and front facia, a custom solid anodised aluminium case weighing in at a notable 19kg! We hope you enjoy this very special CD player; we have spent a very long time creating it, drawing on our many years of experience in specialist Hi-Fi manufacturing.


    Technology behind the design of the Isis


    One important design goal was to take the current output, with no internal amplification within the D to A converter, and convert this to an analogue voltage, using discrete class A operational amplifiers and filters. This circuit can then be optimised for sonic performance. (With most CD players the use of standard operational integrated circuits locks you into the sound of those particular integrated circuits, thus narrowing the scope for improvement).


    The class A current to voltage conversion amplifier evolved out of the development of the first stage of the Rega IOS MC amplifier.


    It shares identical demands of low noise, high drive capability and gain bandwidth required of the voltage to current amplifier.


    Careful choice has been made for every component in the digital and the analogue signal path to ensure the integrity of the signal.


    The analogue and digital sections are bonded together using a substantial ground plane. It was found during the development of the player that
    adoption of RF ground plane techniques aided the sonic quality and therefore were included in the final design.


    Careful design of the PCB's ensures isolation of not just the digital and analogue sections, but also the motor, display and user interface processor.


    All sonically critical electrolytic capacitors have been by-passed with polypropylene or polyester film capacitors. In addition to this, large value electrolytic capacitors have also been by-passed with audio grade electrolytic capacitors.
    Power supply impedances in the digital to analogue converter are kept very low by the use of solid polymer capacitors.


    All power supplies utilise custom Rega K-Power smoothing capacitors, along with fast diodes which have been used throughout in power supply rectification.


    The Isis uses enhanced and optimised control code for the control of the CD processor and user display.This speeds up the initialisation process by means of a tighter control interface between the user micro and CD processor.


    Analogue section


    The analogue section employs two Burr Brown PCM1794 digital to analogue converters, running in a parallel dual mono mode, driving a high performance discrete class A current to voltage amplifier.


    This combination generates an exceptionally wide dynamic range, low distortion, and linear signal. This drives an enhanced discrete class A output amplifier. The circuit is fully balanced from the digital to analogue converters to the balanced analogue XLR outputs. The analogue stage has its own dedicated 50VA mains transformer which ensures galvanic isolation between the digital and analogue sections of the player. You will find 10 separate power supply regulators are used in the analogue circuit and each individual amplifier stage has its own dedicated low noise voltage reference.


    Digital section


    The digital section is blue printed and selected, with major improvements to the mechanism, optical amplifier, DSP core, PLL, master clock & motor power supplies. Another 10 separate power supply regulators are used in the digital circuit. The motor, user interface processor & display also have their own power supply. The digital stage also has its own 50VA transformer again ensuring galvanic isolation. The mechanism is graded and matched to the servo circuits, to ensure the servo and optical amplifiers are working at their optimum point, improving error correction and playability. The headroom of the optical amplifier has been improved by 10% by increasing the voltage in the power supply.


    Digital


    This revolutionary player has been five years in design. Rega, together with its design partners have pioneered a highly advanced servo controller that uses the latest signal processing techniques to ensure that the raw data that is recovered from the disc is of the very highest quality. Because our fully digital servo can use highly advanced algorithms the laser spot is kept in the optimum position for data recovery in terms of focus, size and tracking.


    Extra Error Correction


    Previous chip-sets always made compromises on error correction. Formerly it was possible to have good jog resistance or better musical performance.
    The Rega chip-set allows optimum musical performance and optimised jog /vibration resistance.


    Super-stable phase lock loop


    The entire IC is clocked via a very special PLL of our own design. This allows better CD data recovery as well as a big improvement in the quality of the data delivered to the DAC.


    Low noise digital design


    In the design of our CPU IC we went to great lengths to ensure that the data and address bus noise was kept to an absolute minimum. This ensures the ground and signal connections to the DAC are as 'clean' as is possible.


    USB Input


    Allowing direct connection to a laptop or PC via a USB A-B lead to stream internet radio Mp3 or WMA files directly from your computer via the high quality ISIS internal DAC.


    The USB input uses an isolated double-clocked USB interface, which permits the digital to analogue stage to be used with a computer USB interface and it's own regulated power supply.


    The USB benefits once again from galvanic isolation from the main circuitry of the ISIS player which eliminates the flow of earth currents between the CD and host computer, and eliminate computer power supply noise.


    Disc Analysis


    The ISIS will analyse each disc on an individual basis. During the initialising period (rather like the engine management system on a modern car which optimises the engine settings to temperature, fuel quality etc.) the ISIS will adjust itself to each disc in order to give optimal trouble free reading. For this reason the ISIS will often play discs with marks or scratches that other players cannot read.


    All these features amalgamate to create the supreme level of performance found in the Isis and provide a perfect partner for the Rega Osiris amplifier.

    Batusis EP

    When Smog Veil debuts new acts, we don't mess around. So, when Sylvain Sylvain, founding member of the New York Dolls and Cheetah Chrome, founding member of the Dead Boys, approached us to produce their new project, we knew this would be a perfect fit for the label and a rock'n'roll ripper like none other. Then we saw the band tear it up at SXSW2010, and we're convinced, this is a no-holds-barred shredder for sure.

    Heartless Heathen

    Fronting some of the most original, compelling and unpredictable bands
    (not only in Detroit, but the world) for over two decades, Tim Lampinen's
    work with the Epileptix, Clone Defects, and Human Eye has always held
    a rapturous cult following. Yet his work with his current trio, Timmy's
    Organism, presents Lampinen (aka Timmy Vulgar) along with bassist Jeff
    Giant and drummer Blake Hill, ready for their close-up.


    With Heartless
    Heathen the group touches on their artistic and spiritual forbears of
    Captain Beefheart and Destroy All Monsters, while amply ramping up the
    slop culture rapture of classic punk 'n' roll like Chrome, Crime, and the
    Damned as well as contemporaries like Thee Oh Sees. There's a reason
    why Lampinen won a $25,000 Kresge Grant for his work with his bands...
    he creates music that borders on art, live shows that border on theater.
    It's high time the rest of the world takes notice. Are you ready?
