Big Star – Live On WLIR Remastered and restored performance originally recorded and broadcast in 1974. • On LP officially for the first time. • New liner notes from authors Robert Gordon and Rich Tupica. • Liners include an interview with bassist, John Lightman. Big Star recorded their second album, Radio City, as a trio, after the departure of founding member Chris Bell. When it came time to tour, original bassist Andy Hummel decided to return to school to pursue his engineering education. With this departure, Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens recruited fellow Memphis native John Lightman to take over on bass duties, and the band readied their live set. That set is on display as Big Star recorded a radio session at Ultrasonic Studios in New York for broadcast on the city’s preeminent WLIR. Nearly two decades later, those recordings were issued as Live in 1992. Omnivore Recordings is proud to reintroduce those recordings, restored and remastered from the original tapes, as Live On WLIR, on CD—and, its first official release on LP. The 15 track set features material from the band’s two releases, as well as a cover of “Motel Blues” by Loudon Wainwright III (which originally appeared on his classic 1971 sophomore release, Album II). With new, updated liner notes from Memphis writer/filmmaker, Robert Gordon (who won a Grammy® for his essay in 2010’s Big Star boxed set Keep An Eye On The Sky) and an interview with John Lightman by Chris Bell biographer Rich Tupica (There Was A Light: The Cosmic History Of Big Star Founder Chris Bell), Live On WLIR enters the Big Star canon in the form it deserves. Because, you know, you get what you deserve.

The Buzzcocks – Another Music In A Different Kitchen
Available on silver vinyl or black vinyl
The Buzzcocks – Love Bites
To mark the 40th anniversary of the original releases, Domino are very proud to announce details of the re-issue of Buzzcocks seminal first two albums, Another Music In A Different Kitchen and Love Bites. The albums follow the Domino re-releases of their debut EP, Spiral Scratch and Time’s Up, a collection of demos, from 1976. Famously taking their name from ‘It’s the buzz, cock’, a headline from a Time Out review of 1970s TV music drama ‘Rock Follies’, Buzzcocks formed in Bolton in 1976 by Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto, who have a strong claim to have kick-started a musical revolution in Manchester having organised and played at the now infamous Sex Pistols show at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall in 1976, a show which inspired and spawned the likes of Joy Division, The Fall and The Smiths. Having recorded their debut EP, Spiral Scratch, in October 1976 for a cost of £45 (the single would go on to sell 16,000 copies in the first six months of release on their own New Hormones label), the band soon under-went personnel changes with founder Howard Devoto leaving before they signed to United Artists and embarked on the recording of their debut album. Recorded at Olympic Studios in London between December 1977 and January 1978 with producer Martin Rushent and featuring the line-up of Pete Shelley (vocals / guitar), Steve Diggle (guitar / vocals), Steve Garvey (bass) and John Maher (drums), Another Music In A Different Kitchen was released in March 1978 featuring a distinctive cover by Malcolm Garrett whose work would become inextricably linked with the band. Within six months of their debut album release, the band had recorded and released its follow up. Again working with Martin Rushent at Olympic Studios, Love Bites was recorded in late July 1978 and released in September of that year. It featured their highest charting single, and arguably best-known song, Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve). By the end of 1978 with the release of these albums not only had Buzzcocks established themselves as one of the leading-lights of punk but proved themselves as deft songwriters capable of producing three-minute-mini-masterpieces that would endure long after the initial spark of punk had faded. After releasing a third album, A Different Kind Of Tension, in 1979 the band continued for a couple of years before finally disbanding in 1981. The band would re-form in 1989 for a number of shows and they have continued to play live and record albums since featuring original members Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle. Seminal release from British punk pioneers, lovingly restored and re-mastered from the original ¼ tapes Packaged in the original Malcolm Garrett designed sleeves with lavish 8-page booklets containing unseen images and extensive liner notes by famed writer, broadcaster, music journalist and punk rock commentator Jon Savage LP comes housed in embossed jacket with glossy 8-page booklet. Love Bites is available in white or black vinyl.

Swervedriver – Future Ruins
UK shoegaze legends Swervedriver return on Dangerbird Records with the new album Future Ruins. The follow up to 2015’s I Wasn’t Born to Lose You presents a band moving with real time and real life vitality, showcasing new tricks alongside classic hallmarks. Future Ruins exhibits Swervedriver’s fabled widescreen escapism, but with a tension that echoes the sleeve image of Coney Island in skeletal monochrome, like a post mortem photograph of a failed utopia.
Walter Trout – Survivor Blues
William Tyler – Goes West
Greenvinyl LP pressing. 2019 release from the indie musician best known for his work with Lambchop and Silver Jews. From M.C. Taylor (Hiss Golden Messenger) says, “William’s new record, Goes West, is the best music that he’s ever made. I’m sure of this because I know and love all of his music intimately, and this album moves me the most, and the most consistently. The first time I heard it was in the late spring in the Texas Hill Country, rolling between limestone and scrub. I was on a cleanse then-no alcohol, no drugs, no evil thoughts-and was astonished at the emotional clarity that the album held. It offered up a model for what I wanted my head to feel like. Goes West marks a sort of narrowing of focus for William’s music; it sounds as though he found a way to point himself directly towards the rich and bittersweet emotional center of his music without being distracted by side trips. Perhaps this is down to the fact that William only plays acoustic guitar on the album, a clear and conscious decision considering that he is one of Nashville’s great electric guitarists. The band that performs Goes West alongside William-including guitarists Meg Duffy and Bill Frisell, bassist and producer Brad Cook, keyboardist James Wallace, drummer Griffin Goldsmith, and engineer Tucker Martine-is the best and most sympathetic group of players that William could have assembled to play these songs.”

John Garcia & The Band of Gold –
 Shaka till death! The Kyuss legend and founder of desert rock institutions such as Unida, Slo-Burn, Hermano and Vista Chino returns with his next incarnation: John Garcia & The Band Of Gold. After two solo albums and the „Coyote unplugged“ tour this one is an almost traditional family affair. None other than Chris Goss (who produced Kyuss and the Queens of the Stone Age) gave the self-titled album its finishing touches and provided that gritty, unmistakeable coating. The rather relaxed ‘Space Vato‘ starts off a desertfest second to none that melts down a whole subgenre to its core with groovers like ‘My Everything‘, ‘Cheyletiella‘ and Sturm-and-Drang-y ‘Popcorn (Hit Me When You Can)‘. Hypnotic closer ‘Softer Side‘ releases us back into reality: Shame. We would have loved to stay in California.
Howlin’ Wolf – Change My Ways
Caetano Veloso – A Little More Blue Lilith Records presents a reissue of Caetano Veloso’s Caetano Veloso (A Little More Blue), originally issued in 1971. Often referred to as “Brazil’s unofficial poet laureate” and the “Bob Dylan of Brazil”, this heavyweight of Brazilian music was also a young revolutionary who used his music to protest against Brazil’s oppressive military regime. This protest music, which became known as tropicalia, first earned Veloso a stint in jail, but by the time this dour album was released in 1971, it had placed him in exile in the UK. Veloso’s extreme bitterness and melancholy can be heard on every groove of this album, but don’t let the album’s gloomy atmosphere stop you from buying it; it is dripping with some of the best moments of saudade in the history of Brazilian music. Colored vinyl.
Soundtrack – Gruesome Twosome by Herschell Gordon Lewis
Soundtrack – Won’t You Be My Neighbor by Jonathan Kirkscey
