    Second Edition

    Clear Vinyl


    The second album from John Lydon's post-Sex Pistols group is widely considered to be their magnum opus. Combining such diverse influences as krautrock, dub, post-punk, and the avant-garde, Second Edition is four sides of harsh and uncompromising, yet danceable, music. While not the immediate influence and sensation that Never Mind The Bullocks was, this record is certainly John Lydon's finest artistic achievement. Originally released in the UK as Metal Box this is the first vinyl reissue of the US version of the album with its different running order. Clear vinyl double LP in a deluxe gatefold package.

    First Issue

    180 Gram Viny


    Includes Gatefold Jacket, Poster and Stickers!


    In 1976 Johnny Rotten and the Sex Pistols set the agenda for punk's year zero with 'Anarchy In The UK', a song that summed up the spirit, sound and attitude of the band in one shocking package. Two years later, the Sex Pistols were in tatters, but Rotten was as unsentimental as you'd hope. He reverted to his real name - John Lydon - and set about forming a band whose very identity kicked against press and media manipulation. Featuring bassist Jah Wobble, drummer Jim Walker and guitarist Keith Levene, his new group were Public Image Limited. The public image would be limited.


    PiL were a very distinct prospect from the Pistols, founded with a greater thought for rhythm, and with a sound that turned the page from snarling punk to a more experimental sound fusing rock, dance, folk, ballet, pop and dub. But that's not to say Lydon's new outfit lacked vitriol. 'Public Image' hits out against the notorious British tabloid press, who never gave Lydon an easy ride, and against his own Sex Pistols public image - "You only saw me for the clothes I wore".


    The debut single (and the album that followed) operated as a theme song and a manifesto: " my entrance/My own creation/My grand finale/My goodbye," as the lyrics had it. It is, essentially, the sound of four people letting loose in a studio - and not caring what anyone else thought.

With a shifting line-up and unique sound, John Lydon guided the band from their debut album 'First Issue' in 1978 through to 1992's 'That What Is Not'.

    This Is PIL

    Public Image Limited's new self-funded 12-track set, their first in 20 years, is entitled This Is PIL, and will be released on the band's own label PIL Official via Cargo UK Distribution. All the new material was recorded in the UK last year at Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds.


    John Lydon talks about This Is PIL: "Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention.'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrousness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' Well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments.


    Following on from their monumental live performance at BBC Radio 6 Birthday Celebrations at Queen Elizabeth Hall on Friday March 16th which saw PIL include and baptize 2 new songs: Deeper Water and One Drop, PIL also played two very special shows at London's Heaven showcasing more tracks from the new album with The Times commenting "This was an evening of uncompromising art music, worthy of the total concentration of the audience."


    The track One Drop has now also received airplay from BBC Radio 6, XFM and Absolute Radio. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time PIL's music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 Singles and 5 UK Top 20 Albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound former Sex Pistol frontman John Lydon formed Public Image Ltd in 1978, guiding the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 through to 1992's That What Is Not, before a 17 year hiatus. John then resurrected PIL in 2009 playing live worldwide. Now after 20 years yet another new and unique chapter is set to unfold in the shape of new PIL material!


    Lu Edmonds, multi-instrumentalist and former guitarist in The Damned joined PIL in 1986 recording and playing on the album Happy? and co-writing the album 9, adding yet another dimension to the PIL sound. Bruce Smith, former drummer in The Pop Group and The Slits became percussionist for PIL, also in 1986, playing and recording on the albums Happy? and 9. Scott Firth, bass player/multi instrumentalist has collaborated and played with a variety of top musicians and bands including Steve Winwood, John Martyn, and Elvis Costello.

    Strange Weather

    Numbered, Limited Edition Vinyl Pressed by The Pallas Group, Germany


    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Masters


    Strange Weather was Marianne Faithfull's first complete studio album following her recovery from a 17-year drug addiction. In her earlier recording career, many people were won over by her soft, feathery voice. Unfortunately, Faithfull's public image became tainted during her relationship with Mick Jagger in the late 1960s and drugs took over her life until the mid-1980s. The 1987 release contains a mix of rock, blues and cabaret and includes her re-recorded hit, As Tears Go By which proved to be even more poignant the second time around.

    Passion & Warfare

    Steve Vai started his career working for the legendary Frank Zappa. Later on he recorded and toured with Public Image Ltd., Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake. Passion And Warfare is his second solo album and was released in 1990. It is acclaimed as his best album, finding him coming into his own as a composer, as well as bypassing vocals almost entirely. Because Vai is a much more distinguished composer than most of his guitar-shredder colleagues, who most of the time are simply showing off their technique, Passion And Warfare is possibly one of the richest and best hard rock guitar-virtuoso albums ever.

    Out Of Print For 15 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.


    Ege Bamyasi is Can's fourth studio album originally recorded and released in in 1972. The album contains the popular tracks "Vitamin C" and "Spoon" and features one of the band's most iconic front cover images. Ege Bamyas means "Aegean Okra" in Turkish.

    nature for most of the tracks in the process. The album was

    The Greatest Hits...So Far

    UK Import - One Time Press


    The Greatest Hits, So Far mines the singles PiL released through 1990. Ten years after its release, it was doubtful that a second volume would surface (the '90s saw one lone studio release, not to mention a John Lydon solo record), so thankfully Lydon didn't embarrass himself by titling it The Greatest Hits, Volume One. That said, not many outfits under the guise of one name can boast a collection of singles so diverse and ranging in quality. And really, the title should be The Singles, So Far. By attempting to hit upon all the studio releases, bright moments like Bad Baby, Banging the Door, and The Order of Death get left behind. The distance between 1979's Death Disco and 1990's Don't Ask Me would be impossible to traverse with the trustiest of vehicles. The back cover of the disc depicts Stonehenge and an earthbound spacecraft, with a howling dog in the middle. That's accurate. With peers mutating from the Pop Group (Careering) to Information Society (Warrior), PiL couldn't possibly expect to concoct a compilation that would appeal to all ears. In that regard, GHSF is more of a Denny's sampler than a thematic banquet spread. (To clarify: Rules and Regulations is a cheese stick, not tasty bean pâtÉ.) Whether or not this is a proper first place to go for PiL is up for debate, as it takes a very eclectic head to thrill to both their early discordance and later chart-targeted tunefulness. It's not going to provide a solid idea of where they stood at any point in their existence, but it's just enough to pique further investigation.

    El Prado

    NO was formed in 2010 through the chance encounter of Bradley Hanan Carter and Sean Daniel Stentz at a local LA diner. Bonding over stories of disastrous relationships as well as their mutual admiration for storytelling artists like Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan, Johnny Cash and Lou Reed, the two decided to unite and build something for themselves.


    Following the 2011 release of Don't Worry, You'll Be Here Forever EP, NO quickly gained recognition with the local Echo Park crowds, and both NME and the LA Times tipped them as an act to keep a close eye on. 2012 saw them wrack up over 100 live shows, including supports for Best Coast and Electric Guest, and a European tour with Father John Misty. In 2013 the band returned to LA for a sold-out headline show at The Troubadour and performed at international festivals including London's Hard Rock Calling and Germany's Southside and Hurricane, as well as supporting the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Public Image LTD and The Naked and Famous.


    The six-piece are now looking forward having just finished their self-produced debut album El Prado. Mixed by Billy Bush (Tegan & Sara, Foster The People, Jake Bugg) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Beach House, Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend), the album will be released by Arts & Crafts in North America in 2014.

    Flow Motion

    Out Of Print For Over 30 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger
    Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed
    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.


    Flow Motion is the eighth Can studio album. It features the
    UK hit single "I Want More". The success of "I Want More"
    led to an appearance on Top of the Pops. Flow Motion
    was mixed using binaural stereo, a method of recording
    sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent
    to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of
    actually being in the room with the performers or instruments.


    The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and
    their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely
    acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James
    Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd,

    Saw Delight

    Out Of Print For Over 30 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger
    Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed
    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.
    Saw Delight is the ninth Can studio album.


    It features two new band members who were ex-members
    of Traffic. The musical direction flirts with world music and
    precedes the mid-1980s world music trend set by artists
    such as Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel. Saw Delight was
    made as a binaural recording, a method of recording sound
    that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to
    create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of
    actually being in the room with the performers or instruments.


    The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and
    their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely
    acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James
    Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd,
    Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled 'Sing Swan Song') and
    Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual
    art and literature.

    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of

    Delay is the classic "first album" originally recorded in 1968
    that got stuck in the vaults until 1981 when Holger Czukay
    edited the archived tapes and officially released the album.
    Delay is a compilation album of early outtakes of Can's work
    with singer Malcolm Mooney, including some of the band's
    earliest material. It contains the song "Thief", which was later
    covered live by Radiohead.

    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger
    Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed
    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic, experimental, and modern classical music.


    Unlimited Edition pressed as a double LP features unreleased
    tracks from 1968 to 1974 recorded in Can's private Inner Space
    studios. It is an essential album for those who want to know
    more about the roots of the band. Five cuts listed as "E.F.S" refer
    to the band's continuing Ethnological Forgery Series-- a series of
    songs in which Can self-consciously imitated various
    "world music" genres.

    LP Has Been Out Of Print For Over 30 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger
    Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed
    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic, experimental, and modern classical music.


    Soon Over Babaluma is the sixth studio album by Can,
    the band's first album without a lead vocalist who does not
    play an instrument, following the departure of Damo Suzuki.
    The vocals are taken care of by guitarist Michael Karoli and
    keyboardist Irmin Schmidt. It is also their last album that
    was created using a two-track recorder taking the ambient
    style of Future Days and pushing it even further.


    The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and
    their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely

    Out Of Reach

    Out Of Print For Over 35 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.


    Out Of Reach, the 10th studio album by Can has been
    unavailable in any official format since its original release in 1978.
    Out Of Reach is one of Can's lesser known albums. This is
    due in large part to the fact that bassist Holger Czukay left the
    band while this album was being recorded, and drummer Jaki
    Liebezeit had a reduced role. Most of the rhythm duties were
    left to percussionist, Reebop Kwaku Baah. New bassist Rosko
    Gee largely leads the group, and his jazz-inflected playing
    is marvellous, especially on the centrepiece improvisations
    "November" and "Serpentine."


    The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled 'Sing Swan Song') and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.

    Filth

    First Authorized Vinyl Edition Of 1983 Debut Studio Album In 25 Years


    Re-Mastered With Original Cover Art


    "This is all slabs of sound, rhythm and screaming/testifying. What more do you need? In a way, it was a reaction against Punk (and just about any other music you can think of), and the conservative notion that 3 chords were somehow necessary. I used to deny it vehemently at the time, but No Wave (I "hated" that scene too, for some reason I can't remember now) played a big role as the germ from which this music grew, along with The Stooges and Throbbing Gristle, of course. I wanted Swans to be "heavier" though - I wanted the music to obliterate - why, I don't remember! I think it just felt good. Live, we used two basses (playing utterly unmusical chords that were stabbed and left to sustain or sometimes hit in staccato or opposing rhythms), drums, a "percussionist" that slammed down on a metal table with a metal strap, crude cassette loops of various sounds/noises (usually some kind of undefined ROAR), and Norman Westberg's glorious sustained and screaming guitar chords. It was pretty elating to play live - for us. If 100 people showed up (which would have been a huge audience at the time - 20 was more the average), 80 were guaranteed to leave by the second song. Somehow that tension - contempt or indifference from the audience - was nourishing, so we kept going.


    Here's some music I was listening to at the time: Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, The Stooges, Brian Eno, Teenage Jesus And The Jerks, DNA, The Contortions, Glenn Branca, Black Flag, early Pink Floyd, This Heat, Kraftwerk, The Germs, Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Public Image LTD., SPK "
