  • Clark Sonny - Cool Struttin´(180 gram) (LP)


    Conrad Yeatis Clark, otherwise known as Sonny Clark, was in many ways the quintessential hard bop pianist. Possessed of an enviable lyrical flow and a wealth of inventive melodic ideas that unfurled with clarity and without fuss, Clark had a deeply rooted feeling for the blues.

    After moving from his hometown of Pittsburgh to New York, Clark emerged as a ubiquitous presence on Blue Note starting in 1957. It was on his fifth Blue Note date as a leader that Clark arrived at his masterwork, Cool Struttin’, recorded in January 1958 with a top-shelf quintet featuring Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto saxophone, Paul Chambers on bass, and ‘Philly’ Joe Jones on drums. The album has only grown in stature as a timeless hard bop classic since Clark’s premature death at age 31 in 1963.

    This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

  • Various - Rockin’ With The Krauts Vol. 2 – Real Rock ’n’ Roll Made In Germany (CD)


    The Krauts Are Rockin’ – how could it ever come to this?
    German Rock ‘n‘ Roll from the ’50s and early ’60s evokes ambivalent emotions, separated mothers from daughters, brothers from sisters and fathers from sons – the spirit of Rock ‘n‘ Roll was as important as our daily bread for the youth in post-war Germany. Hail, Hail Rock ’n’ Roll – Deliver Me from The Days of Old the prophet had once proclaimed. The music industry quickly locked the wild teens in the pop cage, the really rough escapees came to the mood cannons of the funfair front. Until today, the 50s are presented to us as a pastel-colored fairy tale land, in which there is no place for rockers, teenagers and the rebellion of a generation against mendacity, oblivion and smugness.

    Bear Family Records presents a compilation away from the big hits, wanderlust and grotesque trivialization of youth. The great Billy Sanders is there, Bernd Spier with his German version of No Particular Place to Go and the great garage rockabilly Hey Baby by the Rockin’ Stars – the record with a difference! Some of the songs make you think you’ve put on an old Rock ‘n‘ Roll sampler. Here it’s strumming, screaming and rocking. Everything comes out – you can hear the Framus, Höfner and Echolette boxes glowing.

    Long live Rock ‘n‘ Roll – The Beat of the Drum is Loud and Bold:
    Attention, jungle music!

  • Meteors - Dreamin’ Up A Nightmare (LP)


    RELEASE DATE: JULY 9, 2021 JULKAISU : Heinäkuun 9, 2021
    THE METEORS – ”Back to hell we go”!

    THE METEORS were formed in 1980 in a reaction to the bands that were singing about ‘Big Green Cars’, ‘Rocking This Town’ and being ‘Rockabilly Rebels’. Preferring their songs to contain topics about vampires, stomping in graveyards and radioactive kids P. Paul Fenech, Mark Robertson and Nigel Lewis soon found themselves all over the media. A media who were eagerly lapping up their new sound christened (thought that is surely not the right word) – ‘Psychobilly’. THE METEORS were front page news in the weekly music press, recording radio sessions and interviews for legends like John Peel, and gracing the silver screen care of a movie short that did the rounds with the Two-Tone movie ‘Dance Craze’. Their film ‘Meteor Madness’, apart from hosting some crazed performances with the unhinged trio, also featured songstress Lilly Allen’s father starring as none other than the rather exasperated Devil, strange but true.

    By 1982 the original line-up had split with Lewis and Robertson going on to form their own bands while P. Paul forged ahead with a free hand with THE METEORS and his idea of how psychobilly should sound. That was a sound that had grown from one of a band’s own personal identity to a world-wide genre that is Psychobilly now over 40 years established and still growing and thriving around the globe. THE METEORS have continued to inspire and influence countless bands while continuing to lead the charge from the very vanguard.

    Now 41 years later, we are in year 2 of the Covid pandemic. But even this could not stop the rolling hate train. In the woods of Oregon, Paul Fenech built himself a new home and his own new recording studio ”Wolftone”. This is also where the new album ”Dreamin’ Up A Nightmare” came into being.

    So here we go again into the pure psychobilly madness of the kings. Now, fresh as ever even after decades of constant touring and more over 30 groundbreaking and cult sustaining albums, THE METEORS present their superb ”next evolution” in the genre that they created and have cultivated and moved forward time after time. It is as uncompromising as ever and encompasses all the elements that have always made up THE METEORS brand of ”Pure Psychobilly”. 12 brandnew tracks of evil psychobilly rock ‘n‘ roll, razor sharp instrumentals and deranged lyrics leading to songs that are guaranteed to set any monsters lose and putting them straight to the wrecking pit! Paul Fenech is not deterred and continues his musical vision undiminished.
