Never Been In a Riot

180-gram 7in
$11.98
No band captures the DIY punk ethos better than The Mekons. As one critic wrote of the group, "Those who couldn't play tried to learn and those who could tried to forget." Their debut EP first appeared on Fast Product in 1978, featuring the collective's original six-piece lineup and delivering three startlingly original songs - "Never Been In A Riot, "32 Weeks" and "Heart And Soul" - that never appeared on any of their albums. Like fellow Leeds misfits Gang of Four and Delta 5, The Mekons form a rowdy and illuminating piece of the UK post-punk puzzle, fusing everyday political concerns with a no-holds-barred approach to performance.�This first-time vinyl reissue and first-time domestic release comes with the original sleeve design.

While his early recordings would come out in hyper-limited editions or go unreleased for decades, Inscrutably Obvious remains his sole LP-a lost gem of Britian's '80s cassette culture and DIY bedroom aesthetics.Originally released in 1981, Inscrutably Obvious covers a lot of ground on it's seventeen inscrutable tracks-from analog synth workouts to mutated disco and shimmering guitar improvisations. The album maintains a late-night vibe, filtered through a post-punk lens.Harrison clearly wears his influences on his sleeve-major debts are paid to Brian Eno, Robert Fripp and Manuel Gottsching-yet finds his own unique voice, combining quirky instrumentals and surrealist sensibilities.This first-time reissue is recommended for fans of Chris & Cosey, Cupol and The Normal.

This inflammatory claim was supported by unpredictable live shows that often ended in riots.In 1978, film producer Larry Larson captured Crime in their natural habitat, the dimly-lit nightclub Mabuhay Gardens. They looked and sounded more severe than anyone in San Francisco was ready for. The footage sat dormant for decades, until now!Edited and directed by Jon Bastian, the recently completed movie features archival live performances and unruly behind-the-scenes straight from the original 16mm color film. A vital document of the group-Frankie Fix, Johnny Strike, Ron The Ripper and Hank Rank-as well as North Beach's sordid scene: parading punks, square thrill-seekers and Fab Mab promoter Dirk Dirksen's provocative emceeing.Superior Viaduct presents this first-time release of the 35-minute movie on DVD and double 7" of it's soundtrack.

Die T�dliche Doris was born out of West Berlin's lively post-punk community in the early '80s. Along with Einst�rzende Neubauten, Malaria, Sprung Aus Den Wolken and Frieder Butzmann, Die T�dliche Doris ranks amongst the Geniale Dilletanten - which roughly translates as "ingenious dilettantes" - who sought to democratize cultural productions beyond the grip of both Western capitalism and GDR socialism. The Geniale Dilletanten became synonymous with a free-for-all approach to music, film, painting and performance where participants encouraged raw expression through provocation and experimentation. Wolfgang M�ller and Nikolaus Uterm�hlen founded Die T�dliche Doris in 1980, presenting the public persona of Doris as a constantly shifting entity that deliberately engaged the contradictions of the human condition. The band often referenced themselves in the third person singular, alluding to Doris as a fully-formed female character with explosive, colorful emotions. For her debut album - originally released on Zickzack in 1982 and playfully titled " " (that is, blank space surrounded by quotation marks) - Doris most closely entertains the notion of a typical rock band with drums, bass and guitar. Produced by Neubauten's Blixa Bargeld, the thirteen songs presented here are disquieting lullabies of profound anxiety, savage and primitive deconstructions of German polka and manic lacerations of punk minimalism: all reflections of the many and fractured personalities of Doris.

After studying with composers John Cage and Earle Brown, Joe Jones became a prominent figure in Fluxus, contributing to the movement's first "yearbox" alongside La Monte Young, Gy�rgy Ligeti and Nam June Paik. Beginning in late 1961, Jones began constructing his own music machines - drawing inspiration from the calliopes, automata and orchestrions of the 19th and early 20th century to create self-playing ensembles of stringed instruments, percussion and woodwinds - "played" through an elaborate (yet decidedly lo-tech) system of rubber bands, balls and tin foil. Christened the Tone Deaf Music Company, this battery of automated musical instruments generates the sounds on In Performance (originally released in 1977 on the Harlequin Art imprint). With exacting conceptual precision and varied subtleties of natural motion - not unlike Harry Bertoia's sounding sculptures - Jones' machines produce richly-textured strata of sound and serve as engines of paradox. While bringing the figure of the artist-composer to the foreground, the machines ultimately dispense with the need for the performer entirely - a cunning subversion of the fetish for virtuosity and individual genius.

While moving away from the maximalism of his old band, paring down Heldon's hybrid of otherworldly sci-fi imagery and pummeling psych-prog riffs, the journey through Iceland is decidedly more inward.Consisting of longer, brooding synth-based pieces as well as short proto-industrial �tudes and interstitial sketches, Iceland features Pinhas' delay-ridden electric guitar, pulsating machine rhythms and analog synthesizer washes-all vivid in texture and timbre, notwithstanding an undeniably chilling ambience.This first-time vinyl reissue includes Wintermusic," an immersive 25-minute bonus track recorded in 1983 and appearing here on vinyl for the first time. Pinhas' excursions channel the season's stillness and sublimity, it's majesty and it's threat. Without a doubt, one his finest moments.Recommended for fans of Cluster, Mica Levi and Fripp & Eno.

Melbourne's Exek began as a studio project with frontman Albert Wolski before the 2014 formation of the four-piece line up with Andrew Brocchi (synthesizer), Henry Wilson (bass) and Sam Dixon (drums). With the addition of Nell Grant on saxophone, the group's sound entered another dimension that reveals Exek to be conjuring the ghosts of PiL, This Heat and Swell Maps. Ahead Of Two Thoughts, Exek's sophomore release, pushes headlong into haunted, post-punk territories. Opening track "U Mop" pairs sneering vocals with elastic bass and spectral guitars, while the elliptical discourse of "Weight Loss (Henry's Dream)" is accentuated by reverbed drums that would make Martin Hannett proud. Superior Viaduct's W.25th imprint presents Ahead Of Two Thoughts, a never-ending loop of dub-infected textures and anxious lyrics. Mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control), this tightly coiled album recorded in 2015-2016 could easily be mistaken for a classic 4AD title from the '80s. US 1. U Mop 2.

But in many ways it showcases a new band with a new spirit, a new energy, and a new approach. It's the first album with drummer Tom Ardolino, who joined in August 1974 at the age of 19 and entered the recording studio just three month later. His joining signals the start of the edition of NRBQ that spanned almost 20 years while gaining notoriety for their blockbuster live performances and classic recordings. It's the first NRBQ album to feature compositions by Al Anderson, who contributes the wonderful "Ridin' In My Car" and delivers inspired guitar solos throughout. It's also the first album with extensive blowing time for the Whole Wheat Horns and finally, it's also the band's first album on it's own Red Rooster label. In addition to Terry and Joey kicking up their songwriting by several points on the Richter scale, All Hopped Up is the first album that they produced, and it's also the first time NRBQ worked with engineer Tom Mark, who came on board when the boys began recording and remixing at Bearsville Studios in November of 1976.

It's 1978 at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis, TN. Peter Holsapple had rolled into town chasing the essence of Big Star. He hooked up with musician/engineer/friend-of-Big-Star, Richard Rosebrough after approaching, and being turned down by, Chris Bell who Holsapple had hoped might be interested in producing him. Together Richard and Peter started laying down tracks during the off hours at the studio. Chilton meanwhile, was knee deep in the making of Like Flies On Sherbert, also being tracked at Phillips. He told Peter, "I heard some of that stuff you're working on with Richard... and it really sucks." Alex promised to come by and show Peter "how it's done." The results? Alex's tracks definitely line up with the chaos found on Flies, while several of Peter's songs found homes on The dB's albums ("Bad Reputation" and "We Were Happy There") and on an album by The Troggs ("The Death Of Rock" retooled as "I'm In Control"), so not a loss at all. What we have in these newly discovered tapes, is a fascinating pivot point with both artists moving past each other headed in distinctly different directions. Chilton moved toward punk/psychobilly as he began playing with Tav Falco's Panther Burns and produced The Cramps debut, Songs The Lord Taught Us, within a few months of these recordings. Holsapple was off to New York to audition for The dB's and enter the world of "sweet pop.
