    The Mekons - The Quality of Mercy is Not Strnen (Virgin 1979, Superior Viaduct 2019):

    [​IMG]

    The Mekons' first LP and only release on Virgin, this has been impossible to find for years now. It was released on CD by Virgin in 1990, but I didn't know it had been re-released on vinyl in 2019 - by US boutique label Superior Viaduct - until I saw this copy at a local record store last week.

    Sounds great - the musicianship is terrible but the production values are actually pretty good :D And it's a great complement to...

    Fast Product compilation 1978-79 (Fast Product 1980):

    [​IMG]

    A compilation of the first few singles from Scottish DIY label Fast Product, this features 3 pre-Virgin singles from The Mekons and 3 pre-EMI singles from the Gang of Four. And...

    The Mekons - The Mekons Story 1977-1982 (CNT Productions, 1982):

    [​IMG]

    This is billed as "The Mekons' 3rd LP" but is really a collection of early recordings, alternate versions, strays, remixes, outtakes, live tracks and a single ('This Sporting Life'). And...

    They Shall Not Pass - CNT Productions compilation 1981-83 (CNT Productions, 1985):

    [​IMG]

    A compilation of mostly Leeds bands released in support of the British miners' strike of 1984-85.

    As one of her last assignments during the school year, my daughter put country music as one of the things that she hated in a PowerPoint slide. I was like: "No, you can't do that, especially here!"

    Anyway, I decided to go on a "country" binge and will not stop until I've seared country into her head.

    No dad, this isn't country, this is alt-country. Right. This ain't Truck Yeah.

    I love Townes. He sings real pain and it shows in his music. Your post inspired me to put this on. I lucked into this original 1969 Poppy Records pressing years ago and it's the only OG one of his I have. Too bad he drank himself to death but damn what a songwriter.

    Dr Feelgood live in '75: exc. 2013 reissue of the OG 1976 release, found last week at Reckless Records in London.

    [​IMG]

    If the video below isn't a selection from side 2, it's at least from the same venue & the same year.



    Also found nearby: a 1980 US (OG) pressing of Talking Heads Remain in Light. Cover knocked around, disc itself a bit scruffy but plays well after a good cleaning.

    Melvin's - Lysol

    Very nice reissue, mastered at RTI, don't know if they pressed it, but sounds great and doesn't cost $300
