Exclusive for Record Store Day 2016

Punk shook the music industry to its foundations in the mid to late seventies, rejecting the excesses of mainstream rock and introducing energy, passion, and a DIY ethic. Often political and anti-establishment as well as aggressive and rebellious, Punk was a youth culture which re-invigorated music.

The ten specially selected double AA side 7” singles in this box present twenty of the most varied and exciting tracks spanning those crucial few years. It’s nearly forty years since many of these tracks appeared on vinyl so it is inevitably very difficult to find mint copies.

Featuring Ian Dury (and the Blockheads), UK SUBS, The Damned andAnti-Nowhere League (Official)

FORMAT: 10 X 7 INCH VINYL SINGLE WITH HARD SLIPCASE

1A The Damned – New Rose
1AA The Mekons – Where Were You

3A The Only Ones – Another Girl, Another Planet
3AA Jonathan Richman – Roadrunner

Mod youth culture – music and fashion – exploded in the UK in the early 1960s and spread through the decade to include the USA.

The term ‘Mod’ came from the fashion side and the clothes worn by beatnik fans of modern jazz, but the music of the movement was rooted in soul and R’n’B, embracing ska and beat-pop.

The ten specially selected double AA side 7” singles in this box pull together twenty of the most diverse and exciting tracks of the golden era of Mod. Nearly fifty years later it is inevitably impossible to find mint copies of these great songs on vinyl.

Includes The Small Faces, Yardbirds, the Spencer Davis Group, PP Arnold and the best of the era.

FORMAT: 10 X 7 INCH VINYL SINGLE WITH HARD SLIPCASE

1A The Small Faces – Tin Soldier
1AA The Downliners Sect – All Night Worker

2A Yardbirds – Heart Full Of Soul
2AA The Pretty Things – Midnight To Six Man

3A Chris Farlowe – Treat Her Good
3AA Benny Spellman – Fortune Teller

4A Billy Nicholls – London Social Degree
4AA P P Arnold – (If You Think You’re) Groovy

5A The Birds – You’re On My Mind
5AA Fleur De Lys – Circles

6AA Donnie Elbert – Little Piece of Leather

ICONIC ROCK BAND THE GO-GO’S ANNOUNCE 2016 “THE GOGO’S FAREWELL TOUR”

NEW YORK, N.Y. (March 21, 2016) – The multi-platinum rock group The Go-Go’s will embark on their farewell tour this summer to commemorate a groundbreaking thirty-eight years in the music industry. Kicking off August 2nd in Clearwater, FL the month-long trek will hit major cities including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. before wrapping in Los Angeles at the Greek Theatre on August 30th. The tour will feature members Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock and Jane Wiedlin performing their timeless catalog. L.A. based rock duo Best Coast will appear as special guests on most dates and rising star Kaya Stewart will open all shows. General tickets for the tour go on sale starting this week. Details on VIP meet and greet packages will be available soon.

“After a 38 year run, we are gearing up for one last blast of a summer tour,” says the band about the farewell trek. “We feel so lucky and so grateful to have had the incredible support of our fans for so long. We can’t wait to get out on the road and give the people what they want: some loud fast music and a great party!”

The legendary rock group made history as the first, and to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to ever top the Billboard charts. The Go-Go’s rose to fame during the early 1980s after the release of their debut album, Beauty and the Beat, which was #1 on the Billboard charts for six consecutive weeks, selling three million copies, and making it one of the most successful debut albums of all time. In 1982, The Go-Go’s were nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best New Artist” and the group also released their sophomore album, Vacation, that same year, which was certified Gold in the US and spawned another top 10 US hit with the title track. In 2011, the trailblazing band was honored with a Star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
