Sex Museum

LEAVE A COMMENT

LP reissues

Sex Museum have been one of the essential bands in the evolution of Spanish rock since the mid-80s, with a brilliant career that comprises several genres and has made them a key name both in Spain and Europe. Now, as part of their 30th anniversary and joining forces with Munster Records, the Madrid band has embarked on an extensive reissue program of their six first LPs. The records have been remastered from the original tapes and are pressed on 180g vinyl, accompanied by a CD and liner notes in English and Spanish. The sleeves faithfully reproduce the original artwork. The first releases are "Fuzz Face" and "Independence", two essential and unique records when they came out, which for years have been very hard to find. Get them here. The band's four following albums will be available in the next months.

Lee Robinson Machine - Black Friday Record Store Day

Black Friday Record Store Day

As part of this year's Black Friday Record Store Day, we are very excited to reissue, with our friends at Light In The Attic, Lee Robinson Machine’s "Family Album". This is the first ever vinyl reissue of this strange, one-of-a-kind album recorded in Madrid in 1997 by Englishman Lee Robinson. In his only solo LP, we hear an eclectic mix of blues, electronic, reggae, psych, pop, and post-punk influences.

 

This limited edition reissue, finally available on vinyl as Lee originally intended, is a long overdue tribute to an incredibly special artist and album, and comes as the highest personal recommendation of both Munster and Light In The Attic.

 

More info here.

RECORD STORE DAY - April 18th

RECORD STORE DAY

LEAVE A COMMENT

April 18th

April 18th is Record Store Day, and to celebrate it we have some special releases that will be available at record shops from this Saturday. Volume 3 of our "R&B Hipshakers" series gets the double LP treatment, so you can have all those King and Federal killer cuts together. Handy! Also on 12", the first ever reissue of "Cántame esa canción que dice, yeah, yeah, yeah" by Five or Six, one of the less heralded acts of the classic Cherry Red era. Released only in Spain in 1982, the LP contains a few cuts from their fantastic early singles and EPs but Five or Six used this opportunity to offer mostly tracks unavailable elsewhere, all displaying the diverse and immense talent of a band that should be more well known. We also have a handful of 7"s, starting with the facsimile reissue of the 1981 debut by Philadelphia's Sic Kidz, one of the finest examples of psycho-garage-punk from the era. In 1975 Alex Chilton went into the Ardent Recording Studios with producer Jon Tiven and out of some tumultuous recording sessions came a number of loose and unpolished gems, which would ultimately become the "Bach's Bottom" album. Munster is proud to present a new 7" featuring previously unreleased alternate versions of three of those tracks, another instance of Alex Chilton magic. In 1971, Mexican band Antorcha released an EP documenting the transition from their beat origins as Las Antorchas to their politically-charged work in the 70s. Featuring three songs written by the band, two in English and the wonderful slow burner 'El jardín del edén' in Spanish, it's a a rare psych rock gem and a pivotal moment in Mexican rock. We also have a special split 7" featuring two untamed 60s nuggets from our "Algo salvaje" compilation. English band Tomcats visited Spain in 1965 and they recorded this rifftastic and fuzzed out version of the classic copla song 'A tu vera'. On the other side, 'Te fuiste' by Pamplona's Los Junior's is a spectacular midtempo driven by an imposing rhythm and an ondulating organ of clearly lisergic reminiscences. Finally, a fantastic 7" on Vampisoul by Orlando Julius. A few years into his music career, in the late 1960s he expanded his own band and began to explore an increasingly deeper, funkier highlife fusion, responding to rock, psychedelia and the funk grooves that were coming from the USA, as well as Fela Kuti's new Afrobeat direction. The two tracks featured on this 1970 single are wonderful examples of that constantly evolving sound, getting mellower, rootsier and always profoundly hip shaking.
