Long Time No Hear
VERUCA SALT – Veruca Salt
Nineties alt-rock group VERUCA SALT reports back with a 7” vinyl of their 1994’s MTV hit Seether and two new songs. The release will be the first since 1997’s Eight Arms to Hold You from the recently reunited original lineup (frontwoman Nina Gordon, guitarist Louise Post, bassist Steve Lack and drummer Jim Shapiro).
R.E.M. – Unplugged: The Complete 1991 and 2001 Series
The unexpected breakup of R.E.M. in 2011 was a heartbreak for many of their fans. Fortunately the band around Michael Stipe left an extensive work including two great MTV Unplugged performances that will be available as a 4 x 12” vinyl set. The series is especially interesting because between the two appearances are ten years, so it’s a good showcase.
JOY DIVISON – An Ideal for Living
It’s difficult to hear from a band if the band and its leader aren’t there anymore. At least punk’s not dead – as the reissue of JOY DIVISON‘s 1978 debut An Ideal For Living proves. It is the first time the four-track EP is officially available. Abbey Road Studios’ mastering engineer Frank Arkwright reworked it and there will also be a new artwork.
THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND – Selections from: Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992
If you would add up the age of all recent and past ALLMAN BROTHERS members, there would be a four-figure number coming of. At the end of 2014 the band, that definitely was a formative part of the blues rock era, will stop touring. It was an annual tradition for THE ALLMAN BROTHERS to play at the Beacon Theater in New York. The recording of their first performance there gives you the chance to enjoy those old hands of southern rock live as often as you want to.
