Dropkick - Turning Circles + bonus disc (Rock Indiana Records Spain) 2020      $18





The 2020 reissue of Dropkick’s 2007 album “Turning Circles” comes as an expanded CD.  This was the first album the Andrew/Alastair/Roy/Stu line up made before “Dot the I” and “Patchwork” albums in 2008, and definitely was one of the most fun and prolific periods of the band.  The original 14 track album now features an additional 10 songs recorded at that time.  The album comes with a bonus disc containing 26 extra demos and recordings that Andrew Taylor recorded in Late 2006 / Early 2007.

The Parson Red Heads - Lifetime Of Comedy (Fluff & Gravy Records) 2021      $15





On “Lifetime of Comedy”, founder Evan Way, new guitarist Jake Smith and the rest of the band navigate new terrain, excavating the bedrock of their well-honed sound and allowing it to be remoulded into an altogether new alchemy of songcraft.  While still quintessentially a Parson Red Heads record, it’s, as Way contends, the most collaborative of their recordings to date.  If there's ever been a time to foster and encourage self-reflection, it's probably right now.

Meet The Tummies: step back in a time when all you wanted was a date on Saturday night, a cool car, and a great place to hang out with your friends. This is what The Tummies are all about; Brit Pop from the 60’s like Gerry and The Pacemakers, Manfred Mann, The Rooks and early Beatles – but modernised.
