Kilburn & the High Roads - Handsome
(Dawn DNLS-3065 UK-75 VG+ 375:-)

No band has ever sounded remotely like Kilburn & the High Roads. They were an oddity at the time, and they sound even stranger decades later, a glorious blend of distinctly British humor, freewheeling vaudevillian pop, musical theater, '50s rock & roll, jazz, and, of course, pub rock, which is the scene where they made their name. Even if you're very familiar with the wit and style of their leader, Ian Dury, through his solo recordings, the Kilburns' lone album will still sound a little strange since the alternately sly and brutal attack of the Blockheads isn't here -- in its place is a puffed-up, campy theatricality, complete with Rocky Horror-esque backing female vocals, that amazingly still feels punk, partially because of its sheer, unhinged, committed weirdness.

Original UK pressing on Dawn, fully laminated picture sleeve. The sleeve shows only a little light wear from storage; the vinyl is graded EX. Nowadays rarely seen!
Killing Joke - Killing Joke
(Malicious Damage EGMD-5.45 UK-80 VG+ 300:-)

Killing Joke was a seminal postpunk band formed in Notting Hill, London in 1979. Their dark experimental style provided both an alternative to the contemporary punk scene and the less aggressive sound of many other postpunk bands.

The classic debut of Killing Joke is a key set during the post-punk years, and a record that also set the tone for countless dark scenes for years to come! At this point, the group aren't too far from Joy Division – with very stark, almost stiff rhythms, topped with just the right amount of fuzz on the guitar and darkness in the production!
Kreator - Extreme Aggression
(Noise Intl N-0145-9 Ger-89 VG+ 275:-)

Formed in Essen, Germany in 1982, Kreator are arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever. Like many of their European speed metal brethren, Kreator fused Metallica's thrash innovations with Venom's proto-black metal imagery. Often referred to as one of the "Big 4" of Teutonic thrash metal, and they are often credited with helping pioneer death metal and black metal.

On their fourth album, a successful Kreator close the '80s by delivering their final thrash triumph. "Extreme Aggression" delivers great songs that are pulverizing and memorable with a first rate set of powerful riffs with metal groove and aggressive vocals.

Original German picture disc.
