First and foremost, we went light on RSD Black Friday Titles but read on: There are several hundred really nice used LPs going out Friday. On top of the stuff that has gone out this week already – peel sessions LPs, even more Folkways LPs, Trade Mark of Quality LPs – there are two large collections that have yet to be pawed by anyone that are going out first thing Friday. There are tons of records (and even a few complete discographies) from Sublime Frequencies, Mississippi Records, Bastard Noise/Man is the Bastard, Wolf Eyes, Graveyards, Flaming Groovies, Lou Reed, Velvet Underground, John Coltrane, Alan Watts, Archie Shepp – you get the picture. There are a lot of great used records going out.
On top of that I am really excited to finally have the Wicked Lady LPs in stock. For the uninitiated Wicked Lady hailed from the UK and kicked out some heavy duty hard-psych/proto-metal in the late 60s and early 70s. There are definitely moments that remind me of other heaviness from the same era – Pentagram, Bang, early Sabbath and Groundhogs to name a few – but Wicked Lady really hold there own. It seems increasingly rare to come across something that has so been so unknown but warrants as much attention today as it can get. Wicked Lady don’t kick out “lost psych masterpieces” they kick out lost psych masterpieces if you get my drift. Rather than take my word for it, check out these jams and deiced for yourself.
Also, there will be a restock of the Evil Blood LP showing up soon so rest your neck and get your eyeball catchers ready because Evil Blood is going to have you banging your head and the packaging is going to make your eyes pop out. Until next time, Keep Thrashin!
