Original Soundtrack - West Of Memphis: Voices For Justice

In 1993 the world was startled by the horror story of the murder of three 8-year old boys near Memphis, Tennessee. Three local teenagers were arrested and given life sentences, one of them was to be executed. Then in 2011, after a tireless campaign involving rock stars, movie actors and supporters from the public the three were released. These famous people all contributed to create awareness and prove the innocence of the three convicted men.

Famed movie director Peter Jackson decided to shoot a documentary on the subject, called West Of Memphis: Voices For Justice. Amongst others, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Patti Smith used their songs for various benefit activities for the case. Johnny Depp's version of Little Lion Man, as well as all the other songs on the soundtrack, played an important role in the life of prime suspect Damien Echols whose innocence was proven in 2011. After eighteen years in prison he declared: "Music has always played a huge role in my life. In my early years it allowed me to escape the crushing poverty I was born into. Then, when I was put on trial, it was music they used against me. My love of heavy metal was considered 'proof' that I was evil and a satanic murderer. And then, ultimately, it was music that helped to free me" said Damien Echols.

Gun Club - The Las Vegas Story + Live LP
The Gun Club was formed by Jeffrey Lee Pierce, former head of the Blondie fan club in Los Angeles. By 1982, the band had signed to Blondie guitarist Chris Stein's Animal Records and temporarily relocated to New York to record their first major label album Miami (MOVLP630).
Following its success, the band recorded The Las Vegas Story (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. The Las Vegas Story benefited from an impeccable production, culminating in album highlights "Walkin' With The Beast", "Eternally Is Here" and "Give Up The Sum".
As a special bonus the first 1.000 copies of this record contain a live bonus LP. Don't miss out on this one!

Godflesh - Hymns
Hailing from Black Sabbath's stomping grounds of Birmingham, England, Godflesh are sometimes respectfully labeled as Sabbath's younger sibling. 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. Adding more variety to the mix, guitarist and band leader Justin Broadrick occasionally sings without a distorted grunt on a number of songs. This doesn't mean the band have lightened up or lost their brutal, pessimistic  outlook. Their authentic sound still 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. Highlights of this album are the incredibly emotional "Anthem", the deep and slow "Defeated" and "Paralyzed". Hymns is finally available on vinyl for the first time with remastered audio and an exclusive bonus track!
Be quick, because first 1.000 copies are pressed on yellow/orange vinyl!

Run-DMC - King Of Rock

Before Run DMC's collaboration with Aerosmith "Walk This Way" (1986) smashed the hit charts and proved to the mainstream that Rock and Hip Hop are mere sides of the same coin, the seminal Hip Hop group already introduced both styles to each other on their second album King Of Rock (1985). 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. Their sound influenced late eighties Hip Hop on the whole, most notoriously by their label mates the Beastie Boys. King Of Rock's influence is 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. This 1985 record is a trailblazing album to the umpteenth degree!

Tim Buckley - Goodbye & Hello
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. Outstanding tracks include "No Man Can Find The War", the title track and "I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain". Classic must-have album!

this from
The Residents - The Third Reich N Roll (red vinyl)
Funny, innovative, challenging and bonkers to a fault, The Residents' second album comprised a remarkable reinvention of a host of Rock and Pop standards.
Beating well-known melodies into Residents defined shapes, the album posited the theory that America's youth were being lulled into political inaction by the fake rebellion offered by Pop culture. The costumed Avant-Garde mavericks were here to save them with music unlike any heard before.
Available as a very limited numbered red vinyl edition in a gatefold cover.
1. Swastikas on Parade (17:30)
2. Hitler Was A Vegetarian (18.27)
