    First And Last And Always

    Numbered Limited Edition



    Paint It Black: 1985 Debut Is Penultimate Goth-Rock Album



    Andrew Eldritch's Ghostly Vocals, Static Beats, Melodic Guitar Jangle Create Hauntingly Atmospheric Soundscapes



    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI (Best Record Plant in America): First Time Any Sisters of Mercy Record Given Audiophile Treatment on LP



    The template for all goth-rock records that followed, Sisters of Mercy's First And Last And Always stands as one of the-if not the most-influential albums of its kind ever released. Distinguished by Andrew Eldritch's ghostly singing, which gives the impression of hearing a forlorn ghoul croon from a foggy English graveyard, the 1985 set is drenched in gloom, claustrophobia, black humor, and dance-ready beats that provide exhilarating contrasts. Fans of the Cure, Depeche Mode, Love and Rockets, Peter Murphy, mid-period Nick Cave, and Joy Division will find it to be a new favorite record.



    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI (the best record plant in North America), Silver Label numbered limited edition LP presents First And Last And Always with a fuller, richer sound that positively obliterates the thin, feeble sonic perspectives that have limited the music until now. Every aspect from Eldritch's haunting singing to the group's jangling guitars and prancing bass lines finally gain genuine definition. Yet what's most improved is the sense of atmosphere: Sisters of Mercy revel in painting tone poems, where the feel and effect are as essential as the notes that are played. This is now an atmospheric tour de force.



    Ever since it's release, First And Last And Always has been aptly shrouded in mythology. Eldritch pushed the envelope during the recording sessions, literally walking into walls and repeatedly unable to maintain his focus. Strung out on amphetamines, dazed by days of no sleep, upset by a recent breakup, and eating little, the vocalist channeled his discord into somber lyrics and brooding singing. He's framed by pulsing albeit lean, spare rhythms, patient tempos, and the clatter of a programmed drum machine that, in spite of its mechanical operation, sounds strangely organic. The songs evoke wet dungeons, walls-closing-in paranoia, and late-night strolls amidst the U.K.'s mysterious underground.



    Despite its overall dark character, the record's arrangements value spaciousness, putting a premium on room and minimalism that makes each note count. As a result, twinkling pianos and keyboards parallel steel-cutting guitars and low-tuned bass lines that, in combination with Eldrtich's baritone, suggest glimmers of hope among the decay. Songs such as the shaking Possession, dramatic Some Kind of Stranger, and desperate Marian remain models of the gothic and post-punk disciplines more than 25 years after their debut. It's no surprise that, given all of the tension and personality that infuse the album, Sisters of Mercy disbanded just months after its release.



    It's unlikely that any goth-rock album has ever sounded this good. This MoFi Silver Label LP will turn your room into rainy, dreary England, circa 1985, and expose you to one of the most harrowing vocal performances on record.

    Kicking Against The Pricks

    Besides being noteworthy as an astonishingly good all-covers album, Kicking Against the Pricks is notable for the arrival of a new key member for the Seeds, drummer Thomas Wydler. Besides being a fine percussionist, able to perform at both the explosive and restrained levels Cave requires, Wydler also allowed Harvey to concentrate on adding guitar and keyboards live as well as in the studio, a notable bonus. Race reappears briefly to add some guitar while former Birthday Party cohorts Rowland Howard and Tracy Pew guest as well, the latter on some of his last tracks before his untimely death. The selection of songs is quite impressive, ranging from old standards like Long Black Veil to everything from John Lee Hooker's I'm Gonna Kill That Woman and Gene Pitney's pop aria Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart. Matching the range of material, the Seeds are well on their way to becoming the rock/cabaret/blues showband of Cave's dreams, able to conjure up haunting, winsome atmospheres (Sleeping Annaleah) as much as higher-volume takes (Roy Orbison's Running Scared, the Velvet Underground's All Tomorrow's Parties). The version of Leadbelly's Black Betty is particularly grand, Harvey's drumming driving the track with ominous power. This said, often holding everything back is the key, as the creepout build of Hey Joe demonstrates. Even more striking is how Cave's own vocals rebut the charges that all he ever does is overdramatize everything he sings -- consider the husky, purring delivery on Johnny Cash's The Singer. Other winners include a masterful version of Jimmy Webb's By the Time I Get to Phoenix and the stately, album-closing The Carnival Is Over, originally a mid-'60s hit for the Seekers.

    Welcome Back To Milk

    It's time for a revolution. Beth Jeans Houghton is dead. Du Blonde is born.
    Welcome Back To Milk is the Newcastle-born singer-songwriter's second
    album, but her debut as Du Blonde, and it's a complete reinvention: new name,
    new look, new band, new attitude - and attitude is a key word.


    Du Blonde is not a persona or a character, it's Beth Jeans Houghton ripping
    it up and starting again. Gone is the baroque chamber pop of 2012's Yours
    Truly, Cellophane Nose. Gone is the band she recorded that album with,
    The Hooves Of Destiny. In place of all that are heavy riffs, loud drums, vocal
    aggression and the sound of somebody finding their voice, whether screaming
    the chorus of Chips To Go, singing soul-bearing ballad Four In The Morning
    or cooing through wistful torch song After The Show.


    Aside from a track made with Youth, Welcome Back To Milk is produced by
    Jim Sclavunos, who knows plenty about capturing dark sounds as a member
    of Nick Cave's Bad Seeds. An unmistakable presence on the album is that of
    Future Islands frontman Samuel T Herring, whose soaring vocals appear on
    Mind Is On My Mind.


    Where Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose threw everything at a song, Du Blonde
    strips everything down to the bare essentials. Black Flag, which opens the
    album, is bass, guitar, drums and a dose of rage. "I got really into hard rock
    and American hardcore while I was living in LA after we finished touring," she
    says. "I couldn't work out why I was having such trouble expressing myself with
    the music I was writing, but after a while I realised the instrumentation didn't
    lend itself to the anger I was feeling. I needed to release all of this pent up
    aggression and I was trying to do it over layers of vocal harmonies and nicely
    played instruments. It was never going to work."


    "I was hiding behind my guitar for so long, it was easy to feel safe there. I
    wanted to put myself in a position I wasn't comfortable with in order to grow
    as a performer. I want no choice but to look people dead in the eyes and give
    them all I have."

    Prayers on Fire, the debut album from seminal Australian post-punk band The Birthday Party, is an aggressive onslaught of controlled chaos and terror. Nick Cave's dark lyrics are barked and howled over demonic melodies, evoking sounds of jazz, pure destruction, and a bone-chilling sideshow carnival.

    From Her To Eternity

    Nick Cave launched his solo career in style with From Her to Eternity, an accomplished album mixing the frenzy and power of his Birthday Party days with a dank, moody atmosphere that showed he was not interested in simply continuing what the older group had done. To be sure, Mick Harvey joined him from the Party days, as ever playing a variety of instruments, while one-time Party guest Blixa Bargeld now became a permanent Cave partner, splitting his time between the Bad Seeds and Einsturzende Neubaten ever since. The group took wing with a harrowing version of Leonard Cohen's Avalanche, Cave's wracked, buried tones suiting the Canadian legend's words perfectly, and never looked back. From Her to Eternity is crammed with any number of doom-laden songs, with Cave the understandable center of attention, his commanding vocals turning the blues and rural music into theatrical exhibitionism unmatched since Jim Morrison stalked stages. Songs like Cabin Fever, with its steadily paced drumming and relentless piano line, and the more restrained and moody The Moon Is in the Gutter sound like cabarets in hell. In the Ghetto, already perfectly suited to such a treatment, shows the underlying sense of beauty that defines the Seeds as much as drama. Even though it's a Presley cover, the sense of Scott Walker's influence isn't far away at all. The title track is and remains a Bad Seeds classic, played at shows up through the present, a tense piano/organ beginning then accompanied by the edgy build of the band, pounding drums, stabbing feedback and keyboard parts and more.

    Your Funeral...My Trial

    Reduced to a quartet for the most part, with Barry Adamson joining Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld, Mick Harvey and Thomas Wydler on only a couple of tracks, the Bad Seeds turn from the interpretive triumph of Kicking Against the Pricks to another strong high, the mostly-original Your Funeral...My Trial. The one cover is a sharp, unsurprisingly dramatic version of Tim Rose's Long Time Man. As for the rest of the album, Trial shows the Seeds working as, again, a remarkably accomplished and varied act, ever available and ready to explore a wide range of musics distilled into Cave's often dark, always passionate vision. Arguably Cave and company have by now so clearly established their overall style that Your Funeral...My Trial is much more a refinement of the past than anything else, but so good is their work that resistance is near impossible. If anything, the brooding power of the Seeds is more restrained than ever, suggesting destructive endings and overwhelming love without directly playing it. Songs like Jacks Shadow and the gentler but still melancholy moods of Sad Waters, detailing a riverside scene between a couple, are simply grand. The opening title track sets the mood well, Cave handling not merely vocals but Hammond organ, adding a strangely sweet air to the late-night atmosphere of the piece. The Carny is a definite highlight, the cracked music-box/carnival accompaniment courtesy of Harvey utterly appropriate for Cave's tale of a circus gone horribly wrong in ways Edward Gorey would appreciate. Hard On for Love, as the title pretty clearly gives away, is at once sensual and blunt right down to the lyrics, Biblical references and all, as the feverish music rises in a tide of emotion.

    Mondo Amore

    It's been a tumultuous three years since the release of Nicole Atkins acclaimed 2007 debut, Neptune City, but the wait has proved worth it. Mondo Amore is a courageous, provocative work, fraught with dramatic tension, sweeping emotions and musical ambition, with Atkins remarkable voice commanding attention at the forefront. On Mondo Amore, Atkins goal was to create a more volatile sound that she had previously attempted, a sonic approach akin to such influences as Scott Walker and Nick Cave, while also touching on longtime inspirations like the blues and classic '60s psychedelic rock. As its all-encompassing title suggests, Mondo Amore is a big, bold collection, a grandly romantic song cycle fraught with all the passion, anger, tenderness and devotion of Atkins' own extraordinary heart.

    Last seen under the gleeful guise of 2007's Grinderman, a no-nonsense rock 'n' roll excuse to head down to the basement and shout, now Nick Cave returns to his full time Bad Seeds co-conspirators for this release. Grinderman was deliberately spare and the concepts were pretty simple, explains Cave. With 'Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!' we allowed ourselves to get expansive.

    The First Born Is Dead

    The blues had long been a potent undercurrent in the Birthday Party's music, so it wasn't all that surprising that Nick Cave embraced the sound and feeling of rural blues on his second album with the Bad Seeds, The Firstborn Is Dead. What was startling was how well Cave and his bandmates -- Barry Adamson, Mick Harvey, and Blixa Bargeld -- were able to absorb and honor the influences of artists like Skip James and Charley Patton while creating a sound that was unmistakably their own. The moody obsessions of rural blues -- trains, floods, imprisonment, sin, fear, and death -- seemed made to order for Cave, and he was able to tap into the doomy iconography of this music with potent emotional force; on Tupelo, he makes a sweeping and disturbing epic of the rain-swept night when Elvis Presley was born, and Knocking on Joe is a tale of life on the work gang that communicates the pain of the spirit as clearly as the ache of the body. Also, the blues helped transform Cave's music as well as his lyrics; the brutal sonic pummel of the Birthday Party here gave way to a more subtle and dynamic approach that still made effective use of dissonance and bare-wired electric guitar noise while proving the balance of loud and soft only made each side deeper and more resonant. (The stark, barely there guitar and drums of Blind Lemon Jefferson are as startling and malignantly fascinating as anything in the Birthday Party's catalog.) The Firstborn Is Dead proved Nick Cave's musical palate was significantly broader than his debut album suggested and pointed to a path (channeling the sounds and emotions of American roots music) he would return to on many of his albums that followed.

    Tender Prey (Awaiting Repress)

    It was Tender Prey that raised the delightfully unlikely specter of Nick Cave the pop star. What was even better was that the song that damn near did it--The Mercy Seat--was an epic litany relating the thoughts of a condemned prisoner awaiting his walk to the electric chair. The Mercy Seat is Cave and his Bad Seeds at their best: the former leavening his mordant tale with grim wit (A ragged cup, a twisted mop . . . the face of Jesus in my soup), the latter conjuring an appropriately demented squall of electric guitars and violins. Tender Prey was a massively important album for Cave: for the first time, he is unabashed about projecting his bleak and often misunderstood sense of humor and his ability to write as good a pop tune as anyone. Tender Prey is the beginning of Cave's voyage toward acceptance by the general public and perhaps himself. Everything good he's done since--and there's been an impressive amount--starts here. --Andrew Mueller

    Songs Of Love And Death (White Vinyl)

    Pressed On 180-Gram White Colored Vinyl


    Limited To 500 Copies


    Housed In A Gatefold Sleeve


    Includes 12 x 12 Art Print


    Me And That Man will release its debut album Songs Of Love And Death on March 24 through Cooking Vinyl. The duo is fronted by Behemoth founder, songwriter/singer Nergal . The album puts away any pre-conceived ideas about what heavy music 'should' be, with the release of this side project. The duo draws heavily on blues, country and folk to make music as dark as if it was being screamed over shredding guitars. Me And That Man pairs Nergal with British/Polish rock musician John Porter.


    Fans of everything from Nick Cave, Danzig, Leonard Cohen, and Johnny Cash's American Recordings, through to the grim, frontier polemic of Wovenhand will find countless mesmerizing moments on the album.

    I Believe

    Translucent Orange Colored Vinyl

    Limited Edition - 1000 Copies

    The third album, I Believe, was released in 2001, after which Haden took an extended break from the band, recording a solo album for Dreamworks Records (later released on his own Diamond Soul Recordings).


    "Strip most music of its fashionable, genre-specific accoutrements and there's precious little left. Except country, perhaps. It's with this in mind that Los Angelenos Spain go about their lovelorn business. There are no frills, no zeitgeist nods here, just the simplicity of the strum, the slide and the hushed confessions of Josh Haden - son of jazz bassist Charlie and disciple of the songwriter's old skool.


    "Three albums in, 'I Believe' is a substantial offering awash with humble entreaties and doe-eyed, lounge affectations. Sure, the moniker may flirt outrageously with Monsieur Schmaltz, but there really are some sweet, sweet sounds lurking beneath the initially perceived pretence. The slow-mo beauty of 'Mary' showcases Haden's almost electronic, pitch-perfect coo (and with all genre gimmicks gone, the voice has to be exact), while the self-explanatory, nu-prairie hum of 'You Were Meant For Me' betrays a romantic absolutism that Nick Cave would be proud of.

    Intoxicated Man / Pink Elephants

    Mick Harvey, a long time Nick Cave collaborator and
    bandmate (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Crime & The
    City Solution) is releasing a remastered double album
    collection of his most important solo works to date -
    two Serge Gainsbourg albums, Intoxicated Man and
    Pink Elephants. The double collection will include
    two unreleased tracks, "Dr Jeckyll" and "Run From
    Happiness."


    Intoxicated Man (1995) and Pink Elephants(1997)
    are Mick Harvey's interpretations of the songs
    of legendary singer, songwriter and poet Serge
    Gainsbourg - they are the first major works translating
    Gainsbourg's influential work from French to English.
    Mick Harvey explains, "Translating a great writer is like
    walking through a minefield and I set myself the difficult
    task of attempting to keep the places of rhyming,
    metre and meaning accurate to the originals."


    The vocal parts originally sung by Gainsbourg's muses
    Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot and daughter Charlotte
    Gainsbourg are here sung by long time collaborator
    Anita Lane - other guests on the albums include
    Bertrand Burgalat, Warren Ellis, Nick Cave and David
    McClymont.


    In 2013, Mick Harvey and his band performed the
    songs of Serge Gainsbourg at the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    curated ATP festival. Mick Harvey will be on tour in
    Europe in the spring of 2014.

    Live 81-82

    Few bands were as cataclysmic, chaotic, and iconoclastic as Australia's Birthday Party. And while they spawned a few imitators (most notably Bogshead, Scratch Acid, and the short-lived batcave movement), their fractured sound and aura of wickedness were so far removed from the norm of early-'80s rock music that no group even came close to duplicating their murderous persona and manic, driving racket.


    Live 1981-82 collects 17 tracks from concerts in London, Germany, and Greece, and for a band whose music seemed to cling to sanity by the most delicate of threads, these recordings are surprisingly coherent and faithful to the album versions.


    Taking into account the barrage of feedback, the pile-driving bass, and singer Nick Cave's howling, the sound is also quite good (the only exception being the single cut from Greece, a cover of the Stooges Funhouse).


    As for the performances, the band is in excellent form. Cave delivers the songs with conviction and energy, punctuating them with his startling vocabulary of shiver-inducing screams, grunts, snorts, groans, and growls. Considering the schizophrenia that was so much a part of the band's music, Cave's ability to convincingly deliver his gut-wrenching angst is nothing short of remarkable.


    While Cave's Manson-meets-Morrison persona drew most of the attention, it was the Birthday Party's ability to swing--hard--that put them over the top. Drummer Phil Calvert is a beacon in the sea of chaos as guitarists Mick Harvey and Roland S. Howard disembowel their guitars, blasting shards of jazz and blues across the horizon. The late bassist Tracy Pew is the real revelation. Rock solid and never missing a beat, Pew emerges as the constant amidst the wreckage, providing the rich base from which these bad seeds sprung.


    Live 1981-81 is a near-perfect document of one of rock's most extreme, creative, and dangerous forces.

    The Something Rain

    Tindersticks has been charting a glorious trajectory since returning to action in 2008 following a 5-year hiatus. With band leader Stuart A. Staples and co-founders David Boutler and Neil Fraser forming a core trio of original members, Tindersticks definitively returned to form with two critically-acclaimed albums in 2008 and 2010. The band's new record, The Something Rain, makes this a trifecta.


    The Something Rain brims and bristles with canny narrative thrust. Slinky, supple compositions are spiked with plenty of barbed edges and sparkling fizz. Right out of the gate, album opener Chocolate features David Boulter's sequel to the spoken-word classic My Sister from Tindersticks' eponymous 1995 release. Boulter narrates the story while the band works up a brilliant, brewing crescendo, abetted by the swirling horns of long-time collaborator Terry Edwards.


    The Something Rain is indeed a new Tindersticks classic, edgier, more exuberant and more expansive, a fine 9-song set of rolling, at times rollicking, and always inimitably Tinderstickian takes on smoky Northern Soul. First Tindersticks album to be entirely produced by the band, with Stuart A. Staples assuming full recording and mixing duties at his own Le Chien Chanceux studio. Features renowned horn player Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Gallon Drunk) and vocalist Gina Foster on several tracks. 180g LP includes art print poster and download code.

    Oedipus Schomedipus

    Barry Adamson's work as a bassist for Magazine and
    Nick Cave's Bad Seeds gave little indication of the
    complex, cinematic works he has composed as a solo
    artist.


    After leaving the Bad Seeds in 1987, Adamson
    decided to follow the path of film composers like John
    Barry, Ennio Morricone, and Bernard Herrmann,
    whose work had intrigued him since childhood.
    After some releases with more of a beat-heavy pop
    feel, Adamson moved back into the land of noirish
    soundtrack with the release of 1996's Oedipus
    Schmoedipus.


    Nick Cave adds a guest vocal to (and co-writes) "The
    Sweetest Embrace"; Pulp's Jarvis Cocker can be
    heard on the co-written "Set the Controls for the Heart
    of the Pelvis". Adamson's skill in layering and devising
    unusual sound textures still qualifies him as one of
    experimental rock's more imaginative composers and
    producers. With this reissue, Oedipus Schmoedipus is
    being released on vinyl for the first time.
