    Jello Biafra With The Melvins 'Never Breathe What You Cant See'

    £19.99

    This time, the root of Biafra's frustration-- aside from the threat of global terrorism, the Bush administration's response to the threat of global terrorism, and, uh, yuppies in Cadillacs-- is personal: The Melvins approached him about a possible collaboration after witnessing the supposed Dead Kennedys "reunion," which-- after a series of inter-band legal disputes-- occurred without Biafra at the helm.

    The Melvins are ideal musical foils to Biafra's maniacal persona, and show an admirable willingness to subdue and camouflage their normally obtrusive sound.

    The band members' great admiration and respect for Biafra's work are evident in the album's malleable arrangements, which strike a perfect balance between the Melvins' grimy post-alternative metal and classic Kennedys-style California punk.

    1.Plethysmograph

    Alternative Tentacles

    Phantom Limbs 'Applied Ignorance (reissue)'

    £12.99

    Oakland’s mysterious Phantom Limbs inflicted their psychotic art-goth-punk debut on the world back in 2001 - and to celebrate their reunion Alternative Tentacles is proud to reissue “Applied Ignorance” with brand new art by singer Hopeless and the addition of 2 previously unreleased tracks recorded live on KALX Berkeley in 2001!

    Prodded by pitchforks to see them, Jello Biafra thought they were the strangest band he had EVER seen at Gilman St. that the crowd went stark raving nuts for. A cross between the Screamers and Gilbert & Sullivan gone terribly wrong. Eerie, grinding keyboards mixed with driving bass, thundering drums, wall-of-sound guitar and frantic, desperate vocals.

    The Phantom Limbs subjected West Coast punk, goth, metal, and indie audiences alike to their psychosis with equal appreciation from the late 90’s thru the mid-00’s. Like a carnival sideshow, The Phantom Limbs thrived equally on the awe and anxiety of the crowd.

    Their music is a swirling amalgamation of old school punk, deathrock, and no wave mixed with the theatre songs of, say, Kurt Weil. Like so many of the great Alternative Tentacles’ bands, they were a must-see live. Their live shows became stuff of legend with singer Hopeless invariably naked or covered in grease paint, duct tape, wrapping paper or substances of unknown origin.

    Crowd interaction was mandatory, with Hopeless sometimes going so far as to handcuff himself to unsuspecting fans. The members of The Phantom Limbs had previously lent their talents to such cult faves as The Boyscouts of Annihilation, Anal Kitties, Scurvy Dogs and Black Ice, and since splitting in the 2000s have created new musical madness with (among others) the Loto Ball Show, Altar De Fey, and Malditos.

    1. Piss On Them Lightly
    2. Shut Up Old Man
    3. Unhinged Face
    4. Minutes Collector
    5. Shake A Baby

    Alternative Tentacles

    Voivod 'To The Death'

    £11.99

    VOIVOD formed in 1983, with a weird hybrid of thrash metal and punk; a sound that made them stand out as a unique band from the beginning. Still together after almost 30 years, having made more than a dozen albums and toured the world, Voivod reach back to the beginning of their career to their 1984 demos for their first Alternative Tentacles release.

    Voivod began as four friends who had met in high school and decided to get together to play some heavy music. Growing up in Northern Quebec in an aluminum factory area called Saguenay, which they named Morgoth Land, they shared a liking of Venom, Motörhead, Tank, Discharge and GBH; as well as obscure prog and krautrock bands like Van Der Graaf Generator, Faust and Can. They were scared of the threat of a nuclear war and Reagan-era concepts such as the Strategic Defense Initiative, and overall had a dystopian view of the future.

    To The Death 84 is a double album/single CD, 70 minutes of loud, blistering metal/punk. Recorded live in the band's jam space in January 1984 with an old tape recorder and a couple of microphones, it nonetheless sounds great and still hits hard today. This demo tape was sent to all the fanzines the band knew of at the time, and has circulated among collectors for years. The lineup for these recordings was Snake (Denis Bélanger) on lead vocals, Piggy (Denis D'Amour) on guitar, Blacky (Jean-Yves Thériault) on bass, and Away (Michel Langevin) on drums.

    The track listing includes songs from War and Pain, their debut album, and 6 others, including a Mercyful Fate cover and two Venom covers. This demo did its job: soon the underground world was aware of this strange vampire warlord from the cold, Voivod.
