Rancid - Tomorrow Never Comes (CD)€17,00
Carrying the same raw energy since their 1991 inception, RANCID has been deemed by Stereogum as ”incapable of making a bad album.” Today, the Berkeley, California, punk stalwarts continue that streak with the announcement of their highly anticipated tenth studio album. ”Tomorrow Never Comes” is due for a June 2 release via Epitaph, produced by longtime collaborator, BAD RELIGION guitarist and Epitaph founder Brett Gurewitz.
Their first new music since 2017’s ”Trouble Maker”, RANCID also shares the exhilarating title track and lead single today. Highlighting their collective ear for melodic rock hooks and catchy, sing-a-long choruses, the song is complete with the familiar wailing guitars and punishing punk rock rhythms that have solidified RANCID as the legends they are.
At a whopping 850 million catalog streams to date, fans and critics alike seem to agree that RANCID’s brand of high-impact, no-frills punk still flows abundantly in their blood, while easily translating to a modern audience. Now embarking on their tenth full-length effort, this is evident throughout ”Tomorrow Never Comes”. With its sixteen blistering tracks barely making the two-and-a-half-minute mark, the album boasts the same gritty, straight forward punk-with-a-purpose that the world just can’t get enough of.
On their last studio album, ”Trouble Maker”, Pitchfork explored the band’s themes of ”contemporary political turmoil–blue-collar identity crises, tense demonstrations, the ever-present shadow of the Man — through the prism of their rebellious past, a little more wizened but just as rambunctious as ever.”
Punk News also raved, ”RANCID makes a radical left turn from the norm, pushing far past the boundaries, not just of punk, but of the traditional rules of music itself, creating the most original sound to come out of any musical artist since Beethoven.”
Throughout the last three decades, RANCID has remained fiercely independent, never losing their loyalty to their community or each other. Their music confronts political and social issues, while balancing personal tales of love, loss, and heartbreak with attitude. By carrying on the traditions and spirit of the original punk rock bands that came before, Rancid has become a legend and inspiration to punk bands that have come after.

Mississippi Fred McDowell - Jesus On The Mainline (2CD) (CD)€29,00
2 CD Set Contains Previously Unreleased Performances. JESUS ON THE MAINLINE is drawn from two 1971 concerts; April 14th, 1971 in Tacoma, Washington, and November 5th, 1971 at the Gaslight In New York, which would prove to be the final recording of the Delta Blues legend. The bottleneck guitarist was 67 years old when these tracks were recorded and his passion and conviction seem to have strengthened with the years. At this point in McDowell’s career he had shifted to playing electric slide guitar. Accompanying McDowell’s gruff voice, the guitar often seems to finish the singer’s sentences for him; it’s like listening to an old married couple.

Gray Billy - Nowhere To Go (But Out Of My Mind) (CD)€20,00
Yksi vuoden kovimmista julkaisuista. Suurin osa on alkuperäisensti julkaistu vain promonoina.
Previously unavailable on vinyl for more than 50 years, this rare collection of tracks presents a wealth of hits that helped define country music in the ‘60s – and beyond!
If you don’t remember Western Swing in its heyday, or the first generation of Texas Honky Tonk, you may not know Billy Gray. Aside from a select group of music aficionados and musicologists, Billy Gray’s name and significant contributions to country music and western swing have simply gone unrecognized for far too long.
Musically, there were many shades of Billy Gray. Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Performer, Arranger, Bandleader. Whether on stage or in the studio, Billy Gray personified what this music was – and still is – all about.
Billy played behind some of Country Music’s biggest names – Hank Thompson, Ray Price and Willie Nelson – served as Thompson’s and Price’s bandleader – and built quite a following in his own right with his own bands, The Western Okies, The Nuggets and The Cowtowners.
Billy Gray, together with the legendary Hank Thompson created a wealth of hits that helped to define the country music of an era, and beyond, helped launch the career of future rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson, and greatly influenced the future sound of country music.
— Joe Hopkins
Rarely heard tracks from the personification of country, western swing, and Texas honky-tonk!

Barnestormers - Same (CD)€20,00
Loistava uutukainen. Melkoinen superkokoonpano!
THE BARNESTORMERS – A ROCKABILLY SUPERGROUP FEATURING JIMMY BARNES, JOOLS HOLLAND, CHRIS CHENEY, SLIM JIM PHANTOM and KEVIN SHIRLEY.
What you have right here is rockabilly royalty. They’re global allstars who swing like a gate. They make the finest, finger poppin’ grooves to shake your local juke joint since the glory days of fenders and fins. Hold tight kiddo.
Flip your lid for each of them now …. pounding the ivories is East End boogie-woogie dice slinger, and UK music legend,
Jools Holland. In the red corner, on sticks, skins and steel, from the City Of Angels via Brooklyn, it’s the signature
Stray Cat backbeat of Slim Jim Phantom. In the blue corner, from Melbourne, slinging his hollow body Gretsch low and drawing quick – Chris Cheney from the Living End. Who’s the ringmaster for all this? Studio daddy-o, Kevin “Caveman” Shirley on the flying faders. And last, but definitely not least, wearing the championship belt of 20 number one albums, on vocals, the storming heart and soul of Australian rock’n’roll … Jimmy Barnes.
They’re spread across three continents but they’re all coming from the same place. Crazy right? They’re kids who grew up
as greasers, listening to real gone 45’s with a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on. It took The Big Flu to bring them together. “Hey, while we’re all stuck inside let’s bake a biscuit about cuttin’ loose”, said the Caveman …. and so they did.
Sure looks like fun. Check out Vince Ray’s unmistakeable trashcomic artwork, brought to cartoon life in Italy by Marco
Pavone, then strap yourself in for the tunes. First off the line is ‘Johnny’s Gone’ … the story of a Rebel flaming out for his cause. Next flag to drop? A real wild child.
Their wax is for all the cats with weekends on their minds. Turn it on, turn it up, then turn it over and do it again. Forget
about breaking your back in the burning heat. There’s no more working for The Man. What are you waiting for? Your life’s
a lonesome train running out of track so grab a special someone who whispers sweet nothings in your ear and go make
some crazy, crazy lovin’ in that big back seat.
Then hit the highway home with your windows rolled way down. Play The Barnestormers so loud that you can’t hear the
police sirens. Put all your troubles in the rear view as you push that pedal to the metal. Then? Lift off! Be wild … real wild. Time’s up, time is money, time please.
Holiday Tony - Motel Mississippi (CD)€18,00
There’s something about Tony Holiday that draws people together. In fact, community has been at the core of Holiday’s young career from the beginning. Since relocating from Salt Lake City to Memphis in 2017, Holiday has been at the center of a soul blues revival in Memphis, anchored by a contingent of young, savvy well-schooled musicians with a ”family-like” attitude and a strong belief in one another. Mentored by past legends, Holiday and this loose Memphis collective are building on the city’s rich traditions and carrying them forward.
Motel Mississippi, Holiday’s 2nd solo album, was recorded about an hour outside Memphis in Coldwater, Mississippi, at Zebra Ranch, the studio of the late great Memphis legend Jim Dickinson (The Rolling Stones, Big Star). Combining the sounds of North Mississippi Hill Country, Delta Blues, and Memphis soul, Motel Mississippi is equal parts hypnotic blues, driving soul, and juke joint stomper. The album consists of six originals and two covers, ”Rob & Steal” by Paul Wine Jones and ”Nobody But You” by Asie Payton. Like with previous projects, Motel Mississippi began as a collaborative effort, this time between Holiday, guitarist/songwriter A.J. Fullerton and guitarist/producer Dave Gross who shared production duties with Fullerton. Rich sonic layers provide a forward-thinking quality to these productions, conjuring up a vibe that’s modern and retro at the same time. The drone and drive of songs like ”Rob & Steal” and ”Get By” contrast with juke joint grooves like ”Just As Gone” while diving into new territory with the Cajun-infused double harmonica instrumental ”Yazoo River.” The album was recorded by another mainstay of recent Memphis recording, Kevin Houston (Southern Avenue, North Mississippi Allstars, G. Love). Other musicians on the album include Lee Williams Jr. On drums, Terrance Grayson on Bass, Aubrey McCrady on guitar, Jake Friel on Harmonica, and Mikey Junior on backup vocals. Motel Mississippi follows 2020’s Soul Service, produced by another regular collaborator, Southern Avenue’s Ori Naftaly. This followed two volumes of Tony Holiday’s Porch Sessions, which saw Holiday traveling across the United States and throughout Europe recording blues musicians on their very own front porches, in front of juke joints, in the countryside, and even on the front stoops of raucous night spots in bustling cities, resulting in two critically acclaimed albums. The guestlist struck a balance between older legends like Grammy® winners Charlie Musselwhite and Bobby Rush, former Muddy Waters guitarist John Primer and the iconic Lurie Bell, alongside some of Holiday’s peers Southern Avenue, Victor Wainwright, and John Németh. The latter two have served as important mentors for Holiday since his move to Memphis. There’s something in the water in Memphis, and Tony Holiday has tapped into it to contribute to an exciting new chapter unfolding in this storied region.
Various - Rockin Rollin USA Volume 3 (CD)€15,00
The Pan American Recordings label endeavors to use some lesser-known and for some people, perhaps more obscure titles, and our philosophy is to compile songs of quality, with every album, its “killer and no filler” ideology! You are listening to music from the past with a remastered sound that will shake the speakers. Dee Jay Mark Armstrong Bühl, Germany
Various - Rhythm & Western Vol. 10 – Nine Pound Hammer (CD)€15,00
JATKOA! To this day black artists in C&W are still considered pretty much a novelty or an exception. The term Country Music was coined in the 1940s because the earlier term Hillbilly Music was deemed to be degrading. Many tracks here are classic C&W songs, a lot are great numbers that were released as R&B.
Various - More Boss Black Rockers Vol. 9 – Hey Doll Baby (CD)€15,00
Maailman parhaan sarjan jatko!
Ladies, gentlemen, and anyone in between, after the massive (and I must say unexpected) success of the 10-volume series ”Boss Black Rockers” I decided to get back to work and found 280 new tracks for a new series of ten killer volumes. I focused on stuff never or rarely heard anywhere else and also not already been used for other Koko-Mojo Records compilations. That was actually pretty easy. The hard part was finding a cool name for this new series. More often than not ”Easy Does It” so I decided to simply (and cleverly) call it ”MORE Boss Black Rockers”.
Cochran Eddie - Portrait Of A Legend (CD)€15,00
OLD STOCK limited
An updated expansion of a 1985 Rockstar vinyl album (RSRCD1008). That long-deleted LP contained ten previously unissued Eddie Cochran stereo recordings plus six Cochran classics such as ’Summertime blues’, ’C’mon everybody’ and ’Teenage Heaven’. They are all on this CD reissue along with 19 additional tracks, including two more stereo recordings and an assortment of rare and previously unissued cuts of songs such as ’Think of me’, ’Nervous breakdown’ and out-takes of ’Teenage cutie’. The last four stereo tracks feature two of Buddy Holly’s band The Crickets, with guitarist Sonny Curtis and drummer Jerry Allison accompanying Eddie on ’Cut across shorty’, ’Cherished memories’ (two versions) and ’Three steps to Heaven’.
Bosshoss - Electric Horsemen (2CD Deluxe Edition) (CD)€35,00
Uusi albumi ja mitkä soundit!
After The BossHoss have recently returned in all new strength, the Berlin country rock outlaws are now back under full power! Together, the septet has refueled its steel horses to let it rip now as ”Electric Horsemen” on its 10th studio album!
Their fans had to wait a good five years for a new album after the last long player, the 2018 released Top 1 disc ”Black Is Beautiful” – now finally the wait is over! On ”Electric Horsemen”, The BossHoss remain true to themselves and their typical high-voltage sound, but also have some completely new style elements with them, which one would definitely not have expected from the formation around Alec ”Boss Burns” Völkel and Sascha ”Hoss Power” Vollmer. On the twelve-track long player, the formation now presents an energetic hybrid style somewhere between sparkling Las Vegas glam, danceable Studio 54 groove and grounded country rock.
Of course, the electric riders have on their new album again plenty of uncompromising live bangers for the upcoming summer tour in the luggage. Like the sparking glam rock bootyshaker ”Dance The Boogie”, the driving hillbilly metal board ”Nice But No”, the gripping feelgood earworm ”Ride With Us” or the powerful country anthem ”Best Friends Forever”.
