The Antidote to a Killing Joke

Killing Joke, I am Kloot, Ronny Jordan, Cranes, King's X, The Byrds, Madrugada and Social Distortion

We're not making fun of you, it's just a Killing Joke. The eleventh self-titled studio album features Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters) on drums. He integrated some of his famous drum rolls on the new incarnation of the '80s Killing Joke. The release is available as a limited edition of 2.500 individually numbered copies on flaming (yellow & orange mixed) vinyl. I am Kloot is the second haunting, melodic and smooth album of the band by the same name. This second piece yielded five singles, including the hits "Life in a Day" and "3 Feet Tall". I am Kloot is available as a limited edition of 1.000 individually numbered copies on transparent vinyl.

Ronny Jordan, an influential artist in the acid jazz movement, released his debut album The Antidote in 1992. The well structured album focuses on different parts of the jazz movement, including a fantastic crossover cover of the Miles Davis classic “So What”. The album is available as a limited first pressing of 1.000 individually numbered copies on gold vinyl. After releasing their first EP Fuse, Cranes expanded to a four-piece band and recorded Self-Non-Self. The dark sounds are a combination of industrial and post-punk music. Self-Non-Self limited 30th anniversary edition of 1.000 individually numbered copies is pressed on coloured (black & pink mixed) vinyl. The self-titled eponymous fourth studio album by the metal trio King's X really shines in the quality of its vocal performances.

Roger McGuinn had to assemble a new line-up for The Byrds in the late '60s and found guitarist Clarence White as their new shining star.

Madrugada's debut album Industrial Silence album contains the singles "Electric", "Higher" and "Beautyproof" plus live favourite "Vocal".

MADRUGADA - INDUSTRIAL SILENCE

Industrial Silence is the debut album by Norwegian alternative Rock band Madrugada. Their strength is not catchy three-minute pop songs; it is their epic, melancholic ballads like "Electric" and "Shine," and intense rockers like "Higher," that make Madrugada stand out. What's really impressive on this album, besides the quality of the songs, is guitarist Robert Burås' creative and versatile playing.

THE BYRDS - DR. BYRDS & MR. HYDE
After the departure of three band members that played on Sweetheart Of The Rodeo, Roger McGuinn had to assemble a new line-up for The Byrds. Especially their new guitarist Clarence White really shines on Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde. The pedal steel guitar work is particularly fantastic, the arrangements are inventive and Roger's distinctive nasal-pitched vocals are confident and inspired. In short it is an interesting and intriguing artefact of the era.
