Paradise Lost, Mew, Mikey Dread, and Behind The Dykes.
Saturday, September 26 we're celebrating the second part of Record Store Day with a bundle of fantastic releases. RSD Drop 2 contains the legendary performance of Paradise Lost at the Bizarre Festival on 19th August 1995 in Cologne (Germany), which is available on vinyl for the first time. Another fantastic release is Behind The Dykes - Beat, Blues, and Psychedelic Nuggets From The Lowlands 1964-1972. This title contains tracks by the best bands and artists the Dutch had to offer in those years. Besides we have the wonderful 15th-anniversary edition of the much-celebrated fourth album by Mew, And the Glass Handed Kites. It contains 10 bonus tracks, including the Mogwai remix of “Why Are You Looking Grave”, “Dark Design (red version)”, and “Animals Of Many Kinds”. Last but not least we have the four-track E.P. His Imperial Majesty, which consists of tracks produced by Mikey Dread and one of his originals. All these tracks have that special Dread vibe, which makes his music so great.
Take a look at this page for a complete overview of all our RSD 2020 releases.
