Symphony No. 1

Glenn Branca
CD: $12.98

Considered by many to be Branca’s best album to date.

“Branca’s first symphony is a massive behemoth of guitars, noise and alternate tunings with players that include the Theoretical Girls’ Wharton Tiers and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo. Branca’s Symphony No. 1 is one of the most raucous and inspiring compositions of the late 20th century.” – All Music Guide

Soul Exorcism Redux

James Chance & The Contortions
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

Soul Exorcism Redux is a re-release of an exhilarating night in Rotterdam from 1980. If you shut your eyes you might actually feel his breath, his sweat come flying at you from the stage or more likely from the floor when he’s dancing alone to the “Twitch”. James Chance is a dangerous and irrepressible man; a wild horse that man was not meant to tame. Now with 3 Bonus tracks from a 4-Track session recorded in 1987. Beautiful 6 Panel digipak

White Cannibal

James Chance & The Contortions
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

In 1981, ROIR then a cassette-only company, released James Chance’ “Live In New York” as its first release. Many regard it as James’ best work. Recorded in late 1980 and early ’81, live at The 80′s Club and Peppermint Lounge NYC, it is now 20 years later an essential document of New Wave history.We are now finally releasing it again, but this time digitally remastered, and renamed “White Cannibal”- fittingly so as James devours himself, his lyrics, his band and the audience! It sounds better today than ever.

Lost Chance

James Chance & The Contortions
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

Early 80′s funky, demented raw punk/jazz from New York Ciy’s maestro of the New Wave. A superb live concert recording, mastered by James Chance. “In September 1981, ROIR released its very first title ROIR A-100 on cassette only: James Chance and the Contortions “Live in New York”. We recorded it on a four-track Dorkorder at my nightclub in NYC “The 80′s” and at Jim Fouratt’s “Peppermint Lounge” Golden Days of the New Wave in NYC, I certainly miss them.” - Neil Cooper

New Too Much Junkie Business

Johnny Thunders
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

Originally released in 1983 as an analog cassette-only, New Too Much Junkie Business was one of ROIR’S best-ever selling cassettes. It has now been digitally remastered and repackaged for CD release. This release is especially interesting because of the studio production by Jimmy Miller, the Rolling Stones producer, the participation of Heartbreakers members Walter Lure and Jerry Nolan, and a track with Wayne Kramer (MC5), where he plays and sings.

Martin Rev

Martin Rev
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

Martin Rev’s (Suicide) self-titled solo debut album, originally released in 1979 on Charles Ball’s Lust/Unlust label (see Lydia Lunch & James Chance), now with 5 bonus tracks (3 unreleased & exclusive). This record, somewhere between the harsh sound of Rev’s early work with Suicide and his more melodic, 50′s-doo-wop-inspired solo material (See Me Ridin’), is concrete evidence of how influential Rev’s dirty American-motorik music really was.

See Me Ridin’

Martin Rev
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

4.5/5 Stars – All Music Guide

This is a surprise record! Rev in rewind! The new pop sound soft & 90’s “Angst”. Listen for what’s not there. A new level of brilliant simplicity with bouncy keyboard, drum machine accompaniment and instantly memorable melodies.

Think Buddy Holly meets Dr. Seuss with a touch of Phil Spector.

The Kitchen Tapes

The Raincoats
CD: $12.98
MP3: $8.98

Rough, loose-limbed, warm, and exciting, The Kitchen Tapes is everything you’d expect from the Raincoats on-stage. Bolstered by the heavy percussion of Richard Dudanski and Derek Goddard, this recording pulsates, while the band dances around the beat tossing in shards of guitar, vocals, and violin. The liner essay by Greil Marcus is excellent.

All material on this CD was recorded in the studio in 1972 during the time the Dolls were first building their Legend with their historic performances at the Mercer Street Arts Center in what was to become SOHO, NYC. It pre-dates their two releases on Mercury records.
“Lipstick Killers” is how the band truly sounded, raw and live, before they were put into the studio by Mercury Records.

“Lester Bangs liner notes place Suicide in its proper historical context: A document of a force of nature – the filthy loud subway station heart of NYC. Suicide pioneered everything from synth-pop to industrial disco – low rent electronic angst-fest. Vega runs rough shod over the whirring blast of Rev’s homemade synth.” –Rolling Stone Record Guide

The Television double cassette release of 1982 became one of ROIR’s best-selling cassettes of all time. Liner notes by Robert Christgau.

The Blow-Up is Television’s most fiery rock ‘n roll, both the extended epics Marquee Moon and Little Johnny Jewel. 9 Stars!!!” – Spin
