THE DISTILLERS - CORAL FANG
The Distillers major label debut Coral Fang is the most remarkable album they recorded to date. It is raw and effective with Brody Dalle's screaming vocal work and the catchy guitar driven rock 'n' roll. The album is filled with highlights focusing on her ex-husband and the internet. Poetic lyrics and trashing guitars melting together on album opener “Drain the Blood”, while the start/stop build “The Hunger” is just pure adrenaline at its best. Brody has a depth and subtlety in her voice that only a few female punk vocalists had. Coral Fang rocks hard and was a refreshing record in the changing landscape of the early zero's.
Coral Fang is available as a limited edition of 2000 numbered copies on transparent vinyl. The package includes an insert.
HÜSKER DÜ - THE LIVING END
The Living End is a Hüsker Dü live album recorded at various venues in October 1987, but not released until 1994. It spans the band's entire recorded output, from "Data Control" off the band's debut, to a healthy dose of songs from the band's last studio album, Warehouse: Songs and Stories. Includes a cover of the Ramones' "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker."
The Living End is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on red coloured vinyl.
THE BOO RADLEYS - WAKE UP!
The Boo Radleys' third album Wake Up! reached the number one spot in the UK album charts. Although their previous albums received critical acclaim, this was the album which opened the doors to a much bigger audience. One of the factors was the release of the sunny Britpop Top 10 single "Wake Up Boo!". It became their biggest hit internationally and it was the most-played song on the UK radio in 1995. The second an third single, "Find The Answer Within" and "It's Lulu”, also charted in the UK Top 40. Different styles of British pop can be found in their music, but most of the darkness of their previous records are replaced by the grandpop with big choruses and bright melodies.
Wake Up! is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on turquoise vinyl.
MARC ALMOND - STARDOM ROAD
After Antony Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons) bought Marc Almond back on stage as a surprise guest at his London show in 2005, he began to slowly gain vocal and physical strength. It was the start of a comeback which made him stronger than ever. He returned to the studio to record Stardom Road, an album full of songs telling his story. The album consists of covers and one new Almond composition. He's combining the more familiar songs with some less known tracks. It is a portrait of all his major influences, and with tracks written by Charles Aznavour, David Bowie, Al Stewart, and Bert Kaempfert among others, you can't do anything wrong.
Marc Almond is an internationally acclaimed and successful artist. He has sold over 30 million records worldwide and is an icon and influence to a generation of musicians.

PETER GREEN - WHITE SKY
White Sky is the fifth solo album by Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green. This time he is more focused on rock music, with all the songs written by his brother Mike. It's not his most innovative record, but one where he just shows another side of his musical abilities. The title track is the longest songs from the album, where you'll hear the signature of Green, his guitar work.
In 1967 Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie played in the legendary John Mayall & The Blues Breakers, and were given free studio time during which they recorded five songs. Peter Green was so convinced of this band´s musical prowess that he formed Fleetwood Mac on the spot and named it after the drummer & the bass player.
