Naked & Shameless – Whiskey Tango Foxtrot CD
The Buck (Naked) and Dave (Shameless) formulation of Naked & Shameless spent the 2000s grinding it out from their base in Chicago with a regular stream of releases and cross-country dive-bar tours. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot was the first recording they made after they moved to Los Angles and before tinsel town ate them alive. While fans have favorites on other discs such as 13 Drinking Songs and Mayberry STD, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot might well be their most cohesive collection, simultaneously mature and adolescent, pointing the way that duo would have gone had they continued in that format.SKU: SPL001
Sharkula – Dirty Caviar CD
Sharkula is a legendary emcee and hip-hop artist from the streets of Chicago with a long history whose recent credits include Take Caution On The Beach with Mukqs and a number of collaborations with Kool Keith. This album was recorded with electronic musician and producer iGod in 2005 and was considered lost for nearly a decade until its original release in 2015 as a 10″ mini-album and CD with bonus tracks. This re-issue of the CD version is a key document in Sharkula’s vast and diverse body of work.SKU: VD028
Liam Warfield – Little Savage CD
Liam Warfield (sometimes known as Liam Idiot) is a writer and sometimes punk-inspired, hobo lo-fi folk rock musician. While he had done some conceptual albums before Little Savage (such as Joshua Moses’ Din and Danger), this disc was also a complete narrative, telling a story loosely based on the Wild Boy of Aveyron while stretching out musically from his earlier guitar-in-hand-while-riding-the-rails-between-campfires aesthetic.SKU: VD032
Deviant & The Clones – Futura Bold CD
Punky, experimental noise rock from mid-80s Vancouver, Canada. Some of the same touchstones as Big Black, but very lo-fi cassette-only releases back in the day. This is the second reissue of what is regarded as the most important of the Deviant & the Clones DIY releases.SKU: VD008
Long Beach Huntington – Ken’s #2, Anti-Tech Police & Other Delights CD
Ken “Long Beach” Huntington is a long time fixture of the local Long Beach, California independent music scene. Known primarily for his harmonica playing, both in the Full Tilt Trio and as guest player for other artists, he has also played other instrument in a range of other settings, from straight up rock to experimental music (notably joining X-Bax in 2015). His solo recordings have a distinct outsider vibe, based in roots music (folk-rock, blues, country) with the occasional dash of psychedelia. This anothology is the first public release of material culled from his DIY recordings.SKU: VD053
