Fela Kuti, "Monday Morning in Lagos" pts. 1 and 2 — Knitting Factory/MRI reissue of the 1971 Nigerian cuts by the king of Afrobeat, remastered from the original Mono recordings.
Flaming Lips, Heady Nuggs: The First 5 Warner Bros. Records 1992-2002 — Extravagant and expensive-as-hell five-LP collection covering the Flamer's records from Hit to Death in the Future Head to Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
Gorillaz, The Fall — Fifteen songs that Damon Albarn recorded on his iPad between shows.
Grateful Dead, Grateful Dead — The psychedelic jug band's debut is filled with barreling blues/rock experiments. Not its brightest moment, but "Cream Puff War" and "Sitting On Top of the World" are catchy little numbers.
Grinderman, "Evil" and "Palaces of Montezuma" 12-inches — Nick Cave and Co. released two U.K.-only singles from Grinderman 2 for RSD. Rumor has it a few landed stateside.
Freddy King, "Wash Out" b/w "Butterscotch" — Two alternative takes of instrumental blues magic from the Texas Cannonball himself.
Mumford & Sons/Laura Marling, Dharohar Project 10-inch — Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling team up with Rajasthani folk musicians in Delhi for this pretty, somewhat pretentious collab.
Nirvana, Hormoaning EP — Visceral Australian tour EP from '92, recorded mostly for a John Peel session. Covers include "Turnaround" (Devo), "Son of a Gun" and "Molly's Lips" (the Vaselines), and "D-7" (the Wipers). This is a must-have. Sonic Youth's Whore's Moaning Australian tour EP from '93 (also re-released for RSD 2011) makes an excellent companion piece.
Roy Orbison, "Only the Lonely" b/w "Oh Pretty Woman (live)" — Mono mixes of two of Roy's heartbreaking baritone standards.
Panda Bear, Tomboy — The T-shirt bundle package is kind of annoying, and you can already buy this on white vinyl. But if you want the blue vinyl you have to play the game.
The Rolling Stones, "Brown Sugar" b/w "Bitch" and "Let It Rock" 7-inch — Two Sticky Fingers-era cuts reissued with a cover of Chuck Berry's "Let It Rock."
Superchunk/Coliseum, "Horror Business" b/w "Bullet" split 7-inch — Nineties' indie rock leftovers Superchunk and hardcore/metal brutes Coliseum offer respective takes on classic Misfits' cuts.
The Velvet Underground, "Foggy Notion" b/w "I Can't Stand It" — Two solid cuts that show the Velvets settling in with new bassist Doug Yule.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
