Green Pajamas Strung Behind The Sun stream 

Musically, to me, this is the best Green Pajamas album we have released, it's quality of songwriting and playing is simply magnificent.
Original release date: August 15, 1997 by Camera Obscura, Australia.

"With its Art Tatum shuffle, ghostly imagery and Middle East-meets-Middle England vibe, it's as fleeting and special as a dream about the most magical hippie summer you never had." One of the "Top 10 neglected American classics" - Tom Cox, The Guardian Unlimited

From the Camera Obscura website, 1997:
'The first new full-length CD of the Green Pajamas' 60s influenced psych-pop since Green Monkey/Bomp released the truly excellent "Ghost of Love" in 1990. Main songwriter Jeff Kelly has always been one of the US’s finest practitioners of the psychedelic pop song, and over the last few years his songwriting has reached dazzling maturity and depth, as showcased in his most recent solo album "Ash Wednesday Rain". Believing that "Ghosts of Love" was the Green Pajamas "Rubber Soul" and that Kelly and Co still had a "Revolver" in them waiting to be drawn out, Camera Obscura approached Green Pajamas to coax them out of their semi-retirement. The result is "Strung Behind the Sun".

'Over the course of 15 songs, the Pajamas stage the biggest comeback since Lazarus, and show why no-one can touch them in their chosen genre. "Strung Behind the Sun" is a dazzling ray fired into the prism of psychedelia refracting off in all directions. Lyrically, it is a winter record, and one imagines long creative afternoons spent in Seattle coffeehouses under siege from the rain. The listener is treated to songs about snow and Madonna complexes, family and strangers, love and loss. Standout Kelly’s tracks "The Brain I Realize" updating "I am the Walrus" and "Tumbledown Tess", written in the wake of his father’s death. Other band members also contribute in fine style, Joe Ross’s "anthemic "Graduation Day", and Eric Lichter’s "Scarlet Song" which climaxes the album.'

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND & MOONGAZING HARE "SONGS FOR NATHAN" buy it here on vinyl, only 200 copies, bonus track!

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND / MOONGAZING HARE - "SONGS FOR NATHAN" (SUGARBUSH SB051), an audiophile issue on vinyl for the first time with 4 extra tracks not on the cd. a collection that gathers together both Moongazing Hare and Trappist Afterland for an twelve track split set. Hopefully if we think on, we’ll be coming back to this in due course, for now a brief tasting of what to expect with us finding ourselves somewhat smitten by both bands openers. The haunting ‘fine horseman’ opens the Moongazing Hare account, emerging from the twilight, a ghost lit ballad whose shadowy entrancement creaks with a magical hush to softly draw you in with its eerily whittled woodland craft and into the bargain sumptuously steeped with a morose majesty that recalls the black heart procession. Trappist Afterland serve up ‘restless day’, in truth sounding like they’ve fallen from another age long since consigned to memory and legend, they craft a seriously intricate and nonetheless bewitching brew which manifests in the shape of this outer worldly spirit walker. Swarthy, hazy and a tad mystic, ‘restless day’ is the kind of thing you’d expect to emerge from the shadowy backwaters of Ecstatic Peace et al, a mysterious folk wanderer weaving a multi lingual tapestry of tripping acid folk and Indian raga mosaics. £19.99 including postage annywhere.

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND - "LIKE A BEEHIVE, THE HILL WAS ALIVE" buy it here on vinyl, only 200 copies, extra tracks!

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND - "LIKE A BEEHIVE, THE HILL WAS ALIVE", a brand new deluxe audiophile limited repress, (SUGARBUSH SB053) This contains two BONUS TRACKS (not on the original vinyl): "Penitents' Trail" and "Father - sun itself live. The music Trapped Afterland create is very hypnotic and rich and, while I just sort of look around when they have an abundance of lyrics such as: “I feel like a sketch... lalala... Without any shading”,  the understated richness of the multitude of odd and compelling vocals and instruments makes it all work.
Don’t pass Trappist Afterland up if you truly want a heavy, melodic dose of authentic modern psychedelic music. While they advertise themselves as producers of spirit music for the dispossessed (Not exactly the target audience for great financial reward...), they have a marketable musical product here which is well worth listening to by any fan of late 60s pop music at its purest.

A new LP in our SPECIAL IMPORTS SERIES on vinyl! HONEYCHAIN "CRUSHED"

HONEYCHAIN - "CRUSHED", another volume in our long running "Special Imports" series! Honeychain unleashes a tidal wave of pop fury and rock’n’roll rapture on their hot blooded new release Crushed. Passion and betrayal burn wildly through the amplifiers while the heartfelt harmonies flow like a cool breeze wrapping itself around the hedonistic beauty of Los Angeles. With the flirtatious bite of Beauty and the Beat and scratchy grandeur of Blonder and Blonder, Crushed delivers a seductive tapestry of modern day pop wizardry.
Hillary Burton continues to evolve as an intriguing and truly unique songwriter. Soon to be summertime anthems “Crushed”, “Messy Love”, and “Some Other Girl” twist and shout with shimmering choruses and unrestrained 60s garage finesse. Kim Shattuck’s intimate and raw production adds a new dimension to the band’s sleek and stylish sound. £19.99 including postage anywhere.

A new LP in our SPECIAL IMPORTS SERIES on vinyl! Smart Patrol "Overage Underachievers"



SMART PATROL - "OVERAGE UNDERACHIEVERS", another volume in our long running "Special Imports" series! These four guys from Munich joined forces to fuse classic songwriting of the sixties with the sound, power and attitude characteristic of the music revolution of 1976-1978 and this resulted in 12 one-of-a kind powerpop gems wrapped in a tailor-made suit of hooks and melodies on their new LP "Overage Underachievers".
But don't mistake them to be retro: they all started out in punk-influenced bands, so in the end they've only gone back to their roots, or as they sing in their tribute to Munich's Atomic Cafe: "It's time to get back to basics"
So what you get here is an album packed with perfect shots of power poppin' 70's mod-punk that would be all over the radio in an ideal world. If you dig the CHORDS, the INCREDIBLE KIDDA BAND, the POINTED STICKS, the PLIMSOULS, the YUM YUMS and KURT BAKER then you will dig this album. £19.99 including postage anywhere.

THE GRIP WEEDS "HOUSE OF VIBES" (SUGARBUSH SB048) out on vinyl now, buy it here!

THE GRIP WEEDS "HOUSE OF VIBES" (SUGARBUSH SB048), out now is their classic debut 2004 album repressed on high quality 140gm audiophile vinyl! Limited to only 400 copies with a full colour insert.
The New Jersey band's raucous blend of Cheap Trick's power chords, the Byrds' ethereal jangle and CSNY's airy harmonies was different, half a decade too early for the New York-based garage revival of the early 00s, and a decade or so too late to be in sync with the West Coast's Paisley Pop movement. No wonder this self-recorded, self-released gem of the power pop art fell on mostly deaf ears, lauded by a few Jersey visionaries, hailed in Germany but completely ignored by commercial radio and MTV.
It's too bad, because if there ever were a record tailor-made for blasting out of AM radio on the way to the beach House of Vibes is it. From the first crunching chords of "Out of Day" through the last feedback tripping psych solo of "Walking in the Crowd", the record balances precisely at the tipping point between rock and pop. It's the same enticing ground that the Who covered in their classic Sells Out, simultaneously hard-edged and accessible, blossoming with melody and rackety with drums. And along the way, the band cranks out half a dozen classic songs, "Salad Days", "Close Descending Love", and "Don't Belong."
This is a truly stunning album and the fact that this band are not massive is tragic as well as kinds cool as it keeps us who are in the know part of a very exclusive club. Buy this album today, you will not regret it. Sealed from the factory - limited to 300 copies - on audiophile 140g black vinyl - now with extra smooth polylined inners to ensure maximum quality. Only £19.99 including FREE worldwide postage.

DOM MARIANI & THE MAJESTIC KELP - "HI SEAS" new album out now, buy it here on vinyl

DOM MARIANI & THE MAJESTIC KELP "HI SEAS" (SUGARBUSH SB047), out now in a very limited pressing of ONLY 300 copies on vinyl comes Aussie legend Dom Mariani's latest release. Touring with the Stems this year in 2018 will do nothing to harm what should be rave reviews for this fanatstic platter. Taking its cue and influence from Soft 60s Surf sounds it also incorporates elements of LEE HAZLEWOOD, JACK NITZSCHE and sounds of EXOTICA. Always prevalent, however, is Dom's twangy reverb drenched guitar. What makes this album stand out are the superb arrangements and an overwhelming air of mystery and wonder. Some of the tracks are so laid back as to be almost soporific but keep the listener hooked and awaiting the next surprising twist. The album is almost completely Instrumental with a few vocals added here and there. This is a gorgeous album and the perfect soundtrack for a laid back summer's afternoon. Sealed from the factory - limited to 300 copies - on audiophile 140g black vinyl - now with extra smooth polylined inners to ensure maximum quality. Only £21.99 including FREE worldwide postage.

DUNCAN MAITLAND (with Pugwash) "Lullabies For The 21st Century" last copies on vinyl here!


DUNCAN MAITLAND "LULLABIES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY" (SUGARBUSH SB017), only 250 copies on coloured vinyl! £18.99 inc. postage. Ex Pugwash man Duncan Maitland sees his legendary album released on vinyl for the very first time. Featuring members of XTC, DIVINE COMEDY & PUGWASH this is a fantastic 60s tinged album of melody, harmony and brilliant playing. A review in "Powerpopaholic" sums it up thus:"Dublin native Duncan Maitland is joined by an all-star guest line-up on his smashing debut Lullabies for The 21st Century. Colin Moulding from XTC plays bass on the opening track, and also helping out are Fran King, Barry O'Brien, Keith Farrell and Tosh Flood (Pugwash). Recorded at his in-home studio, the album draws influences from many favorites. Starting with the richly melodic "Your Century" it has glowing background harmonies and driving bass line.  Followed by the flowing narrative of "Terry The Toad" it adds a great hook in the chorus, and "Crash Position" is a perfect example of modern Beach Boys pop, similar to Rick Gallego (Cloud Eleven).  These songs are not simple ear candy, but complex pop symphonies that don't rely on a straight formulaic approach. Every song on the album is a meticulous study in pop smarts from the Beatlesque touches of "Alien At Home" and "Horror Stories" to the wistful atmosphere of "Supermarket Dream."
