  • Nate on Slapp Happy
    March 13th, 2009 | Uncategorized

    About three and a half years ago, as ReR MegaCorp was gearing up for the long-awaited release of Out Of Cold Storage, a 6-CD This Heat box set, I received an email offering me a discounted price on the then-impending 9-CD box they were putting together, documenting the English avant-prog band Henry Cow. “Henry Cow?” I thought, my mind landing briefly on drawing a blank on who this band was, or what they sounded like. Shelving, inexplicably, any further investigation for another year—nevermind the fact that the Cow box has, to date, not yet seen the light of day—I was later to discover that the paths of Henry Cow and one of my favorite bands, Faust, crossed in the mid-to-late 1970s: both bands had collaborated with an Anglo-American-German trio known as Slapp Happy.

  • Rogues Gallery Spring 2009
    January 7th, 2009 | Uncategorized

    Rogues Gallery posted images from the Spring Collection on their blog PTLDME. The pictures make us think of summer camp, but with grown-ups, and are just the thing we needed to cheer up a particularly rainy day. We’ll be getting some of their reclaimed and refurbished vintage t-shirts in our Annex store in February. And [...]

  • Super Sounds Like This
    December 31st, 2008 | Uncategorized

    (N.B.: This post was initially going to be about Thin Lizzy’s Vagabonds of the Western World (Deram, 1979). Then, Lungfish’s Artificial Horizon (Dischord, 1998). Then, after listening patiently to my insufferable griping about the unwritability of Lungfish, someone dear to me said, “Nate, just write about Gene Clark,” as if this should have been the [...]

  • For Your Ears Only
    December 5th, 2008 | Uncategorized

    Nate Landry shares a “musical secret”. And we always like to share secrets (don’t worry, we won’t tell that one about you in elementary school and your Cross Colors). Young Marble Giants – Colossal Youth LP (Rough Trade, 1980) I present to you the greatest Welsh export since John Cale. Or, if you prefer, Dylan [...]

And instead of just bringing a can of cranberry cocktail sauce to your host’s Thanksgiving Feast, make a little effort. Check out Instructables for ideas. [...]

  • Now, you listen here
    November 21st, 2008 | Uncategorized

    At the Steven Alan store in Tribeca there’s a music nook. Something akin to that area in your elementary school library where you could slip on a pair of headphones and listen to books on tape. While the sounds have changed, the joy of listening hasn’t. Our own Nate Landry talks about what he’s listening [...]
