Earth Rot is visionary composer/arranger/producer David Axelrod’s third album, and the last of his Capitol Trilogy. Recorded as a concept album about the decrepit state of the environment in 1970 Los Angeles, and scheduled for release on the first Earth Day, it features choral vocals and marks a departure for Axelrod’s signature sound, which would take on a jazzier feel in the 1970s.

The latest new music from BABYMETAL, a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and heavy metal. The song is "Distortion" and this release features both a studio and their live recording at Download Festival 2018 on a special red vinyl 12" for Record Store Day Black Friday.

Originally released in 1982, this is a live album, compiled from shows across the UK from 1981–82. Press the Eject features a striking version of John Cale’s “Rosegarden Funeral Of Sores”,a particularly spooky run-through of “Hollow Hills” that out-creeps the studio version on Mask, and the punk rock fuzz-out of “Dark Entries”. Of course, “Bela…” appears here as well, in a luxurious nine-and-a-half-minute version. Washed in feedback and ever-sosubtly accelerating and decelerating, this song is the true center of “Goth” mythology. This Record Store Day Black Friday release is pressed on white vinyl.

Blue Cheer were the loudest, heaviest band of the 1960s. What they played and how they played it was labeled Heavy Metal – partly from a reference by the Beat writer William F. Burroughs and partly from a lyric in Steppenwolf’s Born To Be Wild (Heavy Metal Thunder . . .). It described them perfectly – and they ushered in a new age of searingly loud and upfront Rock which would quickly establish itself as the outer-fringe of Psychedelia. These three early demo tracks predate their debut album Vincebus Eruptum, and have more grind, guts, and grit than anything they've ever recorded! This one-sided EP on colored vinyl is the first ever vinyl release of this material.

Originally released in April 1992, sandwiched between their first two albums (Pod and Last Splash), The Breeders' Safari EP cxame at a time when Kim's Pixies commitments were winding down and her new band was on the cusp of releasing a platinum-selling album. Their first record to feature Kim Deal's twin sister Kelley (and the only Breeders release with both Kelley Deal and Tanya Donnelly), the EP was recorded in two studios with the bulk coming from a session in New York, which provided an early version of "Do You Love Me Now?", "Don't Call Home" and a cover of The Who's "So Sad About Us". The title track was recorded in London by Kim, Josephine Wiggs and drummer Jon Mattock (Spiritualized/Spacemen3). This Record Store Day Black Friday release is a faithful repress of the 12" version, complete with Shinro Ohtake's 198 charcoal drawing Nairobi VIII adorning its cover.

Once upon a time, CKY burned it all down, with a raucous, anarchic, hard rock sound soaked in the skate-punk culture that birthed them and a hard-partying lifestyle onstage and off that decimated relationships and reputations in its wake. CKY’s sonic rebirth sounds as incendiary, expansive, and groovy. Each song is a forceful meditation on what makes CKY so killer.THis Record Store Day Black Friday EP features four new CKY recordings..

One of new wave's most innovative and (for a time) successful bands, Devo was also perhaps one of its most misunderstood. Formed in 1972 by Kent State art students Jerry Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh, Devo took its name from their concept of "de-evolution" -- the idea that instead of evolving, mankind has actually regressed, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society. Their music echoed this view of society as rigid, repressive, and mechanical, with appropriate touches -- jerky, robotic rhythms; an obsession with technology and electronics (the group was among the first non-prog rock bands to make the synthesizer a core element); often atonal melodies and chord progressions -- all of which were filtered through the perspectives of geeky misfits. And now, Devo's debut album on picture disc for the first time!

The picture disc Record Store Day Black Friday version? Even better.

These legendary tracks were the demos recorded for the Priest Driven Ambulance album, with the classic band line-up featuring Jonathan Donahue from Mercury Rev on guitar. Originally recorded by Donahue and remastered by Dave Fridmann and the Flaming Lips, they give a great insight into the creative process of the band. This is the first time The Mushroom Tapes will have been available as a stand-alone release and first ever time these tracks have been available on vinyl.
Originally released in 1981, What We Do Is Secret is a collection of material recorded by American punk band The Germs between 1977 and 1980. The driving EP, under 20 minutes in length, encompasses the sound of the Southern California punk scene in the late 70’s. While most of the tracks come from various studio sessions, several live tracks from the group’s last show at the Starwood nightclub are featured on the record, including a full track of dialogue that gives a listener true insight into attending a Germs show. The tracks were remastered for vinyl and sound better than ever. This limited edition pressing comes on blue color vinyl.
