Play Dead - From The Promised Land. CD. (Label: Goth, Cat.No: CDMGOTH27)

This album came out on CD in hte '90's but, much to the groups disdane, the tracklisting was altered and it was given a differnet name.

The die hard Goth band of the 80's & 90's get a well deserved best of compilation. Found here is twenty of their greatest tracks, fully realising their majestic craftsmanship.

Gary Numan - Complete John Peel Sessions. CD. (Label: Maida Vale / Cooking Vinyl, Cat.No: MVRCD001)
Various sessions from across the goth synth hero's lengthy career, brought together for the first time. The collection opens with two sessions from 1979, the first one took place three months before the release of the second Tubeway Army album Replicas and they are suitably bleak in their style. Included on the second session was a funky version of Numan's biggest hit "Cars", this alternate arrangement probably stems from this new composition being largely untested live at this point. The last session which features on the second CD is from 2001, with Numan recording nine tracks at Peel's behest. This previously unavailable collection was recorded to promote his album Pure. A real collectors choice for Numan fans, the crunchy guitars, analogue bleeps and the clear technological advances being made still leave the listener in awe. Also includes: "I Can't Breathe", "Me! I Disconnect From You" "Conversation" and "Prayer For The Unborn."

This album features alternative mixes of Joy Division classics like Passover, The Eternal, 24 Hours, Autosuggestion and more, recorded on Hannett's own tape machine which he left running throughout his sessions with the group and he stored away in his personal archive. These alternative versions were the producers personal favourite versions, he wisely got control of these takes and from the band members.

Gallon Drunk - You And The Night And The Music. CD. (Label: Sartorial, Cat.No: FIT021CD)
The primal rock n rollers' second LP remastered and rereleased with seven bonus tracks including German radio sessions and a brutal nine minute live version of "Two Wings Mambo." Their confrontational and impassioned sets made them the talk of the London live circuit in the early '90's and led to worldwide support slots with P J Harvey and Morrissey as well as a Mercury Music nomination. This long out of print releas (their first album proper after the early singles collection Tonite…The Singles Bar) makes a welcome return.
Gallon Drunk - From The Heart Of Town. CD. (Label: Sartorial, Cat.No: FIT022CD)
The group third release, compounding the stripped down sleazy rock n roll they had been perfecting for the past few years. Mercury Prize nominated and adored by the music press, this 1993 album featured the saxophonist Tery Edwards who pushed forward the Stooge-like jazz noise element of the band. This remastered release features the eight b sides from the two singles and four live tracks recorded at Madison Square Gardens and Hollywood Bowl (supporting Morrissey) as bonus material.

Fourth solo album from Katatonia mastermind Anders Blakkheim’ Nystrom. This sixty track opus is the final in his symphonic extreme metal solo-project, it was originally to appear as a movie soundtrack to a film that never materialised. Released to glowing reviews in 2001, it has a more atmospheric, epically sweeping feel to it due to the inclusion of Estonian string quartet Maalten as well as his regular guest guitarist / producer Dan Swano (Opeth, Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath). This is a seamless
