This Week's Wish List

Via FE - I'll probably just go with the Caribou and Iggy Pop live CD, though.

4M 506

SLITS, THE: Cut LP (4M 506) 15.00
"Originally released in 1979, the debut from British all-girl post-punk band The Slits is available on 180 gram vinyl for the first time. Mixing a punk attitude and D.I.Y style with reggae rhythms and dub recording techniques, The Slits made some of the most avant pop of the period, which still sounds fresh and innovative today. Mixing unavoidable hooks, minimalist arrangements, and exuberant vocals with a rough, street smart style, Cut is a classic masterwork."


FLAMIN' GROOVIES: Jumpin' In the Night CD (DBK 512CD) 16.00
"The third of the Groovies' Sire Records releases, first released in 1979, is now available on CD for the first time. Contains their great cover of Warren Zevon's 'Werewolves of London' plus 12 more. Extensive liner notes by singer/songwriter Steve Wynn."


CARIBOU: The Milk of Human Kindness CD (DNO 050CD) 14.50
"At the conclusion of our last episode, you might recall that our show was called Manitoba. Alas, what was a lighthearted sitcom became a drama, as lots of paperwork with lots of big words on it exchanged hands, and it was revealed that Dan Snaith was no longer Manitoba but Caribou. All the while, our protagonist has been hard at work on an artistic response, which has turned out to be a doozy in the form of his third album, The Milk of Human Kindness. Building upon the artistic foundation of Up In Flames, Snaith has shed some of the kaleidoscopic haze in favor of crisper, clearer vibe. Moving to the fore is a distinct influence from the likes of Neu!, Silver Apples and Soft Machine (names not thrown lightly around here)."


POP, IGGY: Zombie Birdhouse CD (DYNAM 014CD) 15.00
"Produced by Blondie's Chris Stein and featuring Clem Burke on drums, this album was originally released in 1982 on Stein's short-lived Animal label. After three attempts at commercially viable albums on Arista, Iggy Pop returned with this artistic return to form full of ideas and sharp angles."


POP, IGGY: Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell CD (DYNAM 015CD) 15.00
"Iggy Pop has often been referred to as the 'Godfather of Punk' -- he proves how he earned the title on this live set." Recorded live in Tornto, 10/28/82.
