Killing Joke: Absolute Dissent 2xLP

killing joke

Please don’t throw rocks at me… This is my first album from Killing Joke. I blame Metallica that I have skipped this band till this very day. Metallica’s version of “The Wait” is.. well, not that good one. I bought this album few months ago from local record store, just because I thought that it’s time to check this band what they are all about. Damn you James & Comp. This band is awesome, how in hell I have managed to avoid this band for so long? Better later than ever. I have this list burned on the back of my cranium of bands I will never gonna listen, Killing Joke was on that list but not anymore. This regular black copy seems to be limited to 400 pieces and Discogs prizes are quite high, luckily I didn’t pay that much for this pristine copy. Love this record and gonna check all their previous albums fo sure! Shame on me..




Michael James Tapscott With Andrew Kenower: Good Morning, Africa LP


Along with that Odawas album came this one, “Good Morning, Africa” by M. J. Tapscott (main man behind Odawas) & Andrew Kenower. Actually I was just after that Odawas album but they (in Bookmark Records) offered a deal I couldn’t resist, three albums with nice discount. And how do I describe this album? Some kind of alternative-folk-ambient-new wave-treasure. Choice is Yours. This is limited to 300 copies on black vinyl and I’m really surprised there’s still copies available (this has been released two years ago).from Bookmaker Records. Nice, really nice indeed.


Odawas: Reflections Of A Pink Laser LP


Odawas is here. This band is new to me even thought the name has popped up from time to time in different sites/stores. I listened this album via BandCamp and I liked what I heard (and still like). Those who have been following this blog knows quite well that I have difficulties to put music on certain genres, I can hear some psychedelic, atmospheric, new wave here on this album (as well as some drone and synthpop..). First song on this album reminds me some strange ways of early Mercury Rev (maybe it’s just the voice of the singer) but that’s just a good thing. This fragile beauty is limited to 250 copies on black vinyl and available from Bookmaker Records. Perfect!

Sommet: Remixes 12″ (smokey) + cassette


After huge disappointment with that Halloween soundtrack (I wrote about earlier today) it’s nice to sit down and fill my head with these sweet sounds..uuhh. This remix disc & cassette is limited to 50 copies (comes with huge poster) and seems to be still available from Mount Analog (if some one is interested of this kind synth-pop, new wave remixed stuff).

This video is from their self titled debut but maybe this clears what this is all about..

Tropic of Cancer: More Alone 7″

more alone

Oh, and this I got from Boomkat today. Single sided seven-inch. I had to purchase this one just because I have missed nearly all releases by this band before. Not bad little record at all. This is limited to 300 copies and seems that also this one is sold out (everywhere). Actually I have two copies of this one, didn’t remember ordering this from Boomkat, so I ordered a copy from Bleep.. Well, now I have two copies.. damn
