Vertikal (limited edition) - Cult of Luna

Hard to pick a favourite from this band, but this one is well up there.

I would never have guessed.

Can't recall mentioning this before-City Of The Sun by Seven Impale, crazed Norwegian progressive/jazz rock with elements of VDGG, King Crimson and Gentle Giant. Really good.

Double Figure - Plaid. The production and mixing here is superb. Released in 2001 and I can't hear any reason for it ever to be remastered. Get it right first time. Now there's an idea!!

Quest For Fire, self titled. Got into this after hearing Comet Control(some of these folks in said band methinks). This is better, it's psych/stoner but with a bit of punk sensibility among the wigouts. Also some Floydisms if that makes sense. Elements of Sun Dial as well.

cool! in the green plastic wallet? i've still got one (with a miss-pressed label 'n' all). but, you're right, they were cutting edge, and re-issues of the factory stuff would be welcome, although i have most of it on vinyl! it was a shame that they were initially viewed as a kind of funky joy division!

The Graveyard And The Ballroom - A Certain Ratio

I had this great album on cassette back in the day. All the band's catalogue appears to be out of print, which is a shame. Hopefully somebody will reissue again.

I concur...............I think ;-)

Was pleasantly surprised to heat LKJ on both.

Valhalla Avenue and Lost in the Former West

Baleful yet beautiful. Twenty odd years on, Fatima Mansion's angst-ridden indie rock still packs a punch.

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Aug 2015 18:12:50 BDT
i didny go for the 'island' collection, due to duplication issues, but it's cool that lkj is on both! the 'virgin' comp, i think, just falls a bawhair short of awesome, although there's some truly magnificent tunes on it.

on a front line kick just now - Frontline Presents Roots - if they'd used some of the discomixes on this and 'sounds of reality', and removed 2 or 3 tracks, the discomixes volume would have been blisteringly good!

Endless Sea The Red-sided Garter Snakes

Fabulous album, my favourite of the year so far. Hard to categorise....psychedelic pop/indie maybe.

Album sampler can be found here:
https://soundcloud.com/user208900492/snippets-from-endless-sea-by-the-red-sided-garter-snakes

From their website: "The Red Sided Garter Snakes is a brand new project by two ex-members of The Chameleons (John Lever and Dave Fielding) together with various guest vocalists including former Puressence frontman James Mudriczki. The much-anticipated debut album `Endless Sea' was recorded in Manchester over a 12 month period. It's the first time guitarist Dave Fielding and drummer John Lever have collaborated since The Chameleons split more than a decade ago. And fans will not be disappointed - with Lever & Fielding's unique style sounding as fresh and innovative as ever, but now providing a beautiful textured landscape for the soaring vocals of Mudriczki (on two tracks).
Other contributors include Mary Joanna Coogan (daughter of Martin and niece of Steve Coogan), who provides a brilliantly sublime vocal on one of the album's standout tracks 'Feel Alive', plus Paul Denheyer, Steve Wilson and Greg Mathews."

Front Line Presents Reggae Discomixes - better than Island Presents Reggae Discomixes, which, although generally very good, isn't as robust musically.
