In 2011, famed movie director Peter Jackson shot a documentary on the framing of three innocent teenagers in a gruesome murder case, called West Of Memphis: Voices For Justice. Amongst others, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Johnny Depp and Patti Smith used their songs for various benefit activities, contributing to create awareness and prove the innocence of the three convicted men.
The Gun Club recorded The Las Vegas Story in 1984, which proved to be their most visionary and coherent record to date. Sonically, the band delivers heavy desert Rock, coloured by earthy slide guitars and primal rhythms – a unique blend of New Wave, Garage and Mod with a post-punk attitude.
As a special bonus the first 1.000 copies of this record contain a live bonus LP. Don't miss out on this one!
On their seventh and final studio album Hymns (2001), the undisputed leaders of British industrial metal return to a lean line up of guitar, bass and a human drummer. Their authentic sound presents you with angst, coldness and a mechanical feel, and overall the band sounds in better shape than ever. Too bad it proved to be their last effort.
Available on vinyl for the first time, with a limited coloured pressing to boot!
This groundbreaking record was the first Hip Hop album to go platinum. As its title implies, the dynamic trio claim their supremacy by combining heavy 808 beats and massive guitar riff samples, proving they were the baddest group on the block, period. King Of Rock's influence has proven to be phenomenal. Not only did it introduce Rock fans to a new music, its fresh sounds also made all Hip Hop that came before it sound dated.
Viewed by many as one of his best albums, Goodbye And Hello followed up on his crucial debut album Tim Buckley [MOVLP676] in 1967. There are quite some Sergeant Pepper-esque experimental influences to be found on Goodbye And Hello, making this a highly varied album with much to offer for Buckley fans. Classic must-have album!
Al DiMeola's second album Elegant Gypsy (1977) proved to become one of the defining albums in Fusion. While being still a member of Return To Forever, DiMeola delivered his sophomore solo record after Land Of The Midnight Sun [MOVLP586] by collaborating with Jazz Rock giants Steve Gadd, Jan Hammer and Anthony Jackson. He even enlists Flamenco superstar Paco De Lucia on "Mediterranean Sundance", a song which predicts the style DiMeola would eventually evolve into: Latin tinged acoustic wizardry. Elegant Gypsy was certified Gold in the United States.
