Vinyl Record News & Music Notes

Press Release:

Queen Release Greatest Video Hits on DVD in North America

August 28th Sees The Best of Queen's 70s and 80s Promo Videos Get Released in 2-disc Box Set

This 2-disc set packages many of Queen’s classic promotional videos into 1 package for the first time. The 33 videos on display have gone through video restoration and received a DTS Surround Sound mix, along with commentary from Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Disc 1 spotlights Queen in the 1970’s, when the music video began to emerge. This collection highlights some of their most beloved tracks, from "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Another One Bites The Dust", "We Will Rock You" & "We Are The Champions". From the freezing backyard shoots of "We Will Rock You" and "Spread Your Wings", to the visual masterpiece that accompanies "Bohemian Rhapsody", Queen was already showing off the various ways that they visually wanted to represent their music.

Disc 2 shows the masterwork of Queen in the 1980’s, from 1982’s Hot Space album through 1989’s The Miracle. With the advent of MTV in the US, Queen proved that they could be as creative visually as they were on record. From the Metropolis-themed video for "Radio Ga Ga", the spoofing of Coronation Street in "I Want To Break Free" (which would be banned from the network) and the band being replaced by children in "The Miracle", Queen put their stamp on the music video in the best way they knew how: by doing something new and different each time.

Flea Records Album With Proceeds Going To The Silverlake Conservatory of Music

From Flea:

Warning! It is not a Chili Peppers record. It does not have songs that are like the Chili Peppers at all. It is a mostly instrumental, weird and arty record, the music is mostly just me creating soundscapes that are very emotional for me, but certainly not for everyone! Just me tripping out at home. I am putting it out to raise money for The Silverlake Conservatory of Music a community based non profit music school that i am an integral part of.



ONLY 900 copies available. Will ship out August 10th 2012

Thorns - Thorns (double vinyl)

Originally formed in 1989 by mastermind Snorre Ruch, Marius Vold, & Bård Faust (Emperor), Norwegian band Thorns has inspired a great number of acts such as Satyricon, Mayhem, Dissection, & Emperor, mainly due to Snorre's highly influential style of playing & creating riffs on the early Thorns demo tapes. So impressed was Euronymous of Mayhem, that Snorre became second guitarist in the band for a while & his riffs were used in classic Mayhem tracks.

'Thorns' was the band's debut (& only, thus far) full-length studio album. It was released in 2001 & is a cult slice of highly-individual Norwegian black metal, including experimental & sometimes industrial influences along with synth passages to create a chilling yet clinical slice of extremity. The album was notable for featuring Satyr of Satyricon on vocals, a duty shared between songs with the vocal talent of Aldrahn (ex-Dødheimsgard) & the recording line-up also featured Hellhammer of Mayhem on drums. The outcome was a unique & original album which is today considered a cult classic release by critics.

This edition of 'Thorns' contains 2 bonus tracks from the band's 2000 demo; namely the album track 'Existence' but also a previously unreleased song called 'TSoS'. This edition of 'Thorns' is presented officially for the first time on vinyl. On double black 180gm vinyl.

Stolen Babies Reveals New Album Cover Art

Avant-garde act Stolen Babies have recently revealed the album cover art for the band's upcoming full-length album called 'Naught, which is slated for release later this year.

"In continuing our collaboration with artist Crab Scrambly, it was really important to us to create something our fans would want to keep staring at while they caress and possibly fondle it's smooth exterior... not something easily done to a downloadable mp3, I must note," states bassist Rani Sharone. "We hope this album cover brings plenty of candy coated smiles to the masses and even more warm and fuzzy feelings when they see the rest of this little gem that is the album's packaging. Naught is our mutant, not so well behaved second full-length studio album and we look forward to its release!"

The band plans to release more details about 'Naught' in the near future.
