£5.99Mono was the first album from The Icarus Line. It was originally released May 8, 2001 in the U.S. by Crank! Records on CD, and Buddyhead on LP.The album was recorded throughout two separate sessions in 2000. Upon its eventual release, the album gave the band a significant push in popularity worldwide.Visit product page →
It was included on many "Best Albums of 2001" lists in various publications. In support of the album, the band toured with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Cave In, among many others.
£8.99Icarus Line have always trumpeted squawk over rock convention, but Penance Soiree jacks that ante from the very first measure of "Up Against the Wall." Sneering like a crack whore Mick Jagger ("Why can't I get some fo' free?!") and swallowing the bassline howl whole, Icarus vocalist Joe Cardamone makes sex the type of thing to be scared of.Visit product page →
There's post-punk in here -- that angularness that's the rage with operators too cool for things like "smelling nice" and "having a job." Icarus Line will attract these couture ghouls, no question. But Penance Soiree might also have true and valorous mass appeal, a shelf life past its buzz as an export from the land of inky black hair styles. Don't doubt it: Icarus Line are crazy. But listen to that melodic preen in "Spike Island," and the way its guitars roar and teeter for an unavoidable groove -- this isn't the inaccessible intellectualism of Mars Volta, or Liars' distempered noise quackery. No, Icarus Line are uniters, not dividers. Even when "On the Lash" loses interest in its cracked psychedelia and rides Cardamone's reverbed wail into a pile of ridiculous static muck, it reengages with fresh crackling fury.
"I can feeeeeeeel it," he screams over the pound, and it's better than hearing Van Halen for the very first time. The rest of Soiree is no slouch, either, cleverly weaving between the cones of insularity and throbbing accessibility. "Getting Bright at Night" is nine minutes of Karl Wallinger binging on old 4AD records, the beat-damaged "Caviar" invites the world to its druggy key party, and "Virgin Velcro" tears a hole in the disco ball to find strutting heavy metal inside. As serious as things get on Penance Soiree (and the choppy "Spit On" gets pretty serious), there's the happily nagging notion that Icarus Line just want to entertain, and that they're damn good at it. The notion pays off in the last two minutes. "Party the Baby Off," behind all that squelch and trebly production, is just T. Rex classic rock with a message for the kids: "Tonight, take off all your clothes." Icarus Line -- pop's new heartthrobs. - Allmusic

Infamous former front woman for seminal band, the Nymphs, Inger Lorre is making her long overdue return to the music scene. Following up 1999’s solo record, Transcendental Medication and the collectable Motel Shootout single, Burn (1995) with a 7” single.
Inger admits her return to the music scene has been a long journey, “The music I hear on commercial radio stations is mostly uninspiring. It makes me think how lucky I was to be part of that grunge scene and witness the success of bands like Sonic Youth. So I’ve been gathering my energy. For me making music is the easy part, dealing with people at major labels – that was always hard. I never understood the value my music might have to others - I credit Jeff Buckley with making me see that. Until that point I didn’t feel like I was doing anything important or good…When Jeff died it was just one week after my father passed away, and it took me a long time to be able to move on from that trauma”.
Why now? “Having good people around me such as Henry Rollins and my long-time publicist and friend Faye has helped me feel strong and safe enough to create new music. I’m glad to step back into the music industry, independently and on my own terms – I feel empowered. I also have a new band that are young, talented and full of enthusiasm!”
Inger is currently working on a new album, but welcomes the opportunity to be involved in Record Store Day, “I want to really celebrate the spirit of independence - record stores ran by music fans for music fans. These are the people I want to make great music for!”“Snowflake is a song summing up the horror and the fear involved in addiction. I’m very pale skinned and ‘Snowflake’ was my street name. As a teenager and young adult I was trapped in a self-medicating addiction, as a form of protection against physical & verbal abuse and constantly being around alcoholism. As much as it harmed me it also saved me from becoming a teenage suicide. This song is the sound of me walking through fire”. “Hate in my Heart is about the downside of relationships, confused emotions and the fine line between love & hate. It’s also about making the decision not to take anymore bullshit”.

Purple vinyl - Infamous Nymphs front woman Inger Lorre celebrates how vital her songs still sound today, with a live recording of a sold-out show at the legendary Viper Room.
The set includes classic Nymphs tracks, ‘Sad & Damned’, ode to a serial killer ‘The Highway’ and the mourning swirl of ‘Imitating Angels’, with the addition of a cover of Siouxsie & The Banshees ‘Monitor’.
This live album is raw and primal; tribal, glamorous, witch-y, grunge-y, punk. Inger states, “These songs are the sound of me walking through fire…” Lorre’s cult following has grown in strength of late, with the seminal self-titled debut album re issued by Rock Candy Records and 2 new songs released for Record Store Day. Encouraged by the interest she is recording a new album, tentatively planned for an autumn release.
Often seen as musician’s musician (once dubbed by Jeff Buckley as ‘The Patron Saint of Fucked-Over Musicians’) and having worked with the likes of Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins, sadly Inger’s notoriety often eclipsed her darkly beautiful music. Haunted by the infamy of a band that burned brightly all too briefly, before imploding in a devastation of bereavement, addiction, mental health issues and misguided record company dealings. No one will ever forget the desk pissing incident.
Inger Lorre is a music industry legend. These days Inger Lorre has mostly conquered her own demons - exorcised through art, music and time to heal. What comes next will no doubt be unique as the women herself.
“Inger retains her strength as a songwriter and performer without losing any of her sensitivity, fragility and danger. I always look forward to what she does, it never disappoints” – Henry Rollins
"The Nymphs were a very original underground band with a unique sound and GREAT songs" - Iggy Pop
“Inger Lorre is a magician, a shaman…that kind of witch-doctor ability for live performing” – Eric Avery, Jane’s Addiction

Angry Love Productions proudly announces the release of Alienist, the new album by Psychic TV. Alienist is the follow-up to 2014’s highly acclaimed Snakes which in part, explored Genesis Breyer P-Orridges foray into African Voudoun culture, the title track of which will be used in the forthcoming documentary Bight Of The Twin, which focuses on Genesis’ explorations in Benin, Africa.
Alienist in part explores drummer and Psychic TV’s co-producer Edley ODowd’s fascination of Psychic TVs long-time reinterpretation of contemporary rock classics - this time tackling “Jump Into The Fire” by the late Harry Nilsson as well as Genesis’ teenage favourite “How Does It Feel To Feel” by ’60s British psychedelic rockers The Creation.
Original tracks include the haunting yet emotional “ Looking For You”. An epic journey in which Genesis lets Lucifer himself know that his ‘time is over’ as well as the title track ‘Alienist’. A delightful fusion of dance grooves harking back to PTVs Acid House days and the Genesis and the bands current love of heavy psychedelic rock.
Look for plenty of live dates in support of Alienist including a major concert at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 7.

Born in 1981 from industrial music behemoth Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV is fronted by Throbbing Gristle’s founder: anti-hero, artist, and Pandrogenist, Genesis P-Orridge. — Psychic TV is particularly known for its intense and visceral live performances and for a creative lineage that includes cultural luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Derek Jarman, and Timothy Leary, among others.In 2003, New York artist and musician Edley O’Dowd gently persuaded Genesis to rekindle her desire to perform and create music as Psychic TV. The result has been a 12 year run of concerts and releases as Psychic TV / PTV3.
On January 22, 2016, this catalog was made available digitally through Dais Records. Many for the first time ever in digital format outside of the bands USB stick, a self-released edition of 300 which came out December, 2014.

£13.99Visit product page →Music critics and fans agree, Redd Kross is back and delivering their signature brand of genuine rock 'n roll with a vengeance. Founded 34 years ago in Los Angeles during the first wave of LA punk rock by brothers Jeff and Steven McDonald (then respectively 15 and 11 years old), Redd Kross cut their teeth opening for Black Flag at a middle school graduation party.
Their debut recordings caught the attention of Rodney Bingenheimer, who quickly became a fan as he spun their Ramones inspired songs like “Annette's Got The Hits” and "I Hate My School" on the world famous KROQ. Their following releases maintained roots still firmly planted in punk, but the band started to experiment with different musical elements and band members. Redd Kross boldly broke new ground by intuitively and inventively mixing their eclectic inspirations in song and performance.
They understand and embrace the esoteric commonalities between the Partridge Family and the Manson Family; the Beatles and Black Sabbath; The Osmonds and the New York Dolls. The result was a band that was ahead of their time - daringly original, artistic and uncontrived. Records like “Teen Babes from Monsanto”, “Born Innocent” and “Neurotica” became precursors to the Seattle bands of the 90's, as well as becoming an inspiration to many indie and alternative rock bands worldwide. “(Redd Kross) are definitely one of the most important bands in America” - Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore In 1990 the band released their major label debut, “Third Eye”.
Taking their obsession with late 60's bubblegum am radio to a new level, the song writing matured with more complex arrangements, harmonies and lush production. Redd Kross had their first single chart “Annie's Gone”(#16 billboard modern rock), and began to tour with notable artists such as Sonic Youth, The Go-Go's, The Posies, Jellyfish, The Lemonheads, and the Hoodoo Gurus. Robert Hecker took leave as lead guitarist and the McDonald brothers were joined by Eddie Kurdziel (guitar), Brian Reitzell (drums), and Gere Fennelly (keyboards).
They released the critically acclaimed “Phaseshifter” album in 1993 featuring the hit songs “Jimmy's Fantasy”, “Lady In The Front Row”, and a raucous cover of Frightwig’s “Crazy World”. In 1997, Redd Kross released one of their most polished albums, “Show World” featuring the perfectly crafted pop single, “Mess Around”. After supporting the album by touring with Sloan and the Presidents of the United States, the band went on a much needed hiatus. Fans wondered when they would return, and things seemed more uncertain after the untimely passing of guitarist Eddie Kurdziel in 1999.
The McDonald brothers launched www.ReddKross.com and began to reconnect with their fans and make new ones. They experimented with the new medium just as innovatively as they do with their music - Steven McDonald released an online only mashup album called “Redd Blood Cells” by adding bass tracks to the White Stripes album, Jeff McDonald began podcasting (“Hit It!”) before iPods or podcasts were invented, and also released a web based video series (Bitchin' Ass”) far ahead of YouTube.Redd Kross reissued their classic “Neurotica” album as they worked on a variety of other projects including “Ze Malibu Kids”, “The Steven McDonald Group”, and worked in various capacities with other bands on stage and in the studio such as the Donnas, Turbonegro, Imperial Teen, Anna Waronker, be your own pet, fun., Sparks, Tenacious D, Beck and OFF!.
In 2006, Jeff and Steven announced their reunion with the “classic Neurotica” line up – and were joined once again by guitarist Robert Hecker (IT’S OK) and drummer Roy McDonald (the Muffs). Redd Kross have been playing to enthusiastic audiences at sold out select shows and festivals such as the Azkena Festival, Coachella, The HooDoo Gurus’ Invitational - “Dig It Up”, All Tomorrow's Parties, and Pop Montréal. “Researching the Blues” is the highly anticipated new record. It is their first new album in 15 years and will be released on Sweet Nothing August 6th, 2012.

£21.99Visit product page →Music soundtrack to the intimate, affecting portrait of the life and work of ground-breaking performance artist and music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV) and his other half and collaborator, Lady Jaye, centered around the daring sexual transformations the pair underwent for their “Pandrogyne” project.
Featuring music by Psychic TV, Thee Majesty and his other collaborations. Genesis P-Orridge has been one of the most innovative and influential figures in music and fine art for the last 30 years. A link between the pre- and post-punk eras, he is the founder of the legendary groups COUM Transmissions (1969-1976), Throbbing Gristle (1975-1981), and Psychic TV (1981 to present), all of which merged performance art with rock music.
Celebrated by critics and art historians as a progenitor of “industrial music”, his innovations have transformed the character of rock and electronic music while his prodigious efforts to expand the boundaries of live performance have radically altered the way people experience sound in a concert setting. But that’s just the preamble to the story.
Defying artistic boundaries, Genesis has re-defined his art as a challenge to the limits of biology. In 2000, Genesis began a series of surgeries in order to more closely resemble his love, Lady Jaye (née Jacqueline Breyer), who remained his other half and artistic partner for nearly 15 years.
It was the ultimate act of devotion, and Genesis’s most risky, ambitious, and subversive performance to date: he became a she in a triumphant act of artistic self-expression. Genesis called this project “Creating the Pandrogyne”. Influenced, like so much of Genesis work, by Brion Gysin and William Burroughs Cut Ups , it was an attempt to deconstruct two individual identities through the creation of an indivisible third. This is a love story, and a portrait of two lives that illustrate the transformative powers of both love and art. Marie Losier brings to us the most intimate details of Genesis’s extraordinary, uncanny world. In warm and intimate images captured handheld, Losier crafts a labyrinthine mise-en-scene of interviews, home movies, and performance footage. The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye documents a truly new brand of Romantic consciousness, one in defiance of the daily dehumanization of the body by the pervasive presence of advertising and pornography, conveying beauty, dignity and devotion from a perspective never before seen on film. www.balladofgenesisandladyjaye.com
The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye has been theatrically released in France (5 markets, several screens in Paris) and will be theatrically released in Germany (10 markets, through the Arsenal) with more international sales pending. In North America, Jeff Lipsky from Adopt Films has acquired all film rights and will be releasing in over 20 markets on March 8th, 2012. Canadian distribution will be operated by Films We Like with plans for a theatrical run in approximately 10 markets.
Mexican release will be operated by the Mexican Cinematheque. Very popular at film festivals around the world in 2011, The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye received the TEDDY AWARD for Best Documentary as well as the following awards:
• Grand Prize Indilisboa
• Caligari (Germany)
• Prix Louis Marcorelles & Prix des Bibliotheques (France) • Audience Award, BAFICI (Argentina) • Artistic Achievement Award, Outfest (USA)
