Shep & Me! Subject!

A couple new things in the catalog:

Shep & Me Nasturtium Inertia LP
A wonderful album of odd moody understated folk-psych out of Pittsburgh. A great companion to fellow Pittsburgian Tusk Lord, Shep & Me reminds me a bit of Jack Rose, Sun City Girls, Dead Western, the Cherry Blossoms, and maybe even Current 93  rolled into one. Great for 3 AM insomniac listening! Previously released on cassette; finally on vinyl where it belongs. (Dear Skull)

Subject #1 zine
Debut of a cool, small punk zine with a really nice two-color screened sleeve. Contents: Brain F, The Shitty Limits, Brown Sugar, reviews.

Available now!

S.S. mail order will be carrying BART: Bay Area Retrograde Vol 1 LP, a fantastic compilation from the Dark Entries label, of early 80s synth tracks from the San Francisco Bay Area. There are a few "well know" groups here, but also some real obscurities. Some released and unreleased. Top quality, a much needed look at the Bay Area's synth/experimental scene of that era. Groups are Nominal State, Batang Frisco, Quiet Room, Necropolis of Love, Wasp Women, Distant Thunder, Danny Boy & the Serious Party Gods, Voice Farm, Los Microwaves, Standard of Living, and the Units. BART will be available in the S.S. mail order catalog on April 25.
