Asphixiation - What Is This Thing Called Disco?
Asphixiation
What Is This Thing Called Disco?
2LP | 1981 | EU | Reissue (Chapter Music)
24,99 €*
Release:1981 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The first ever reissue of "What Is This Thing Called 'Disco'?", a landmark
Australian post-punk artefact originally released in 1981 as an LP with
accompanying 12" single. One of the first records from the Australian
underground to incorporate disco elements into the reigning post-punk
asethetic, "What Is This Thing Called 'Disco'?" sits alongside records by
international counterparts like Flying Lizards or Yellow Magic Orchestra in
its combination of art school formalism and dancefloor hedonism.
Melbourne artist Philip Brophy is best known for his work with 70s/80s artpunk
provocateurs Tsk Tsk Tsk (pronounced with three clicks of the
tongue). Asked to stage an exhibition in Melbourne in 1980, Brophy decided
to put disco into an art gallery context. He created 'fake' band Asphixiation
to mime on stage along to tape, and recorded "What Is This Thing Called
'Disco'?" as the backing tracks. In 1981, iconic Melbourne label Missing Link
released a two song 12", and later that year the band released the album
themselves, repressing the 12" and including it in the package. 36 years
later, Chapter Music has lovingly remastered and reissued the album +
single package, with new liner notes and photos.

Totally Mild - Her Black Vinyl Edition
Totally Mild
Her Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | AUS | Original (Chapter Music)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / AUS – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
"Her" is the second album by Melbourne lush pop quartet Totally Mild. Following on
from their acclaimed 2015 debut "Down Time" (released on Bedroom Suck in
Australia, Fire Records in the UK), "Her" is a shining jewel of an album. Elizabeth
Mitchell's voice is a thing of unearthly beauty, capable of soaring and swooping in
shiver-inducing ways. As a songwriter she is equally arresting, addressing desires and
dreams with affecting frankness. In Totally Mild she is joined by guitar magician
Zachary Schneider, drummer Ashley Bundang and bassist Lehmann Smith. In the last
few years the band have developed a quasi-psychic intensity, surging forward or pulling
back in seamless unison. This intensity has been captured in crystalline form by
producer and one-time Architecture In Helsinki member James Cecil. Her is polished
and spacious, while never losing the feeling of a band in full flight. About the new
album, Mitchell says "Her is a document of a woman struggling with the idea of
potential. We are told that we could be limitless, but we wrestle with unseen personal
and structural walls." Mood rises and falls expertly throughout the album: Working
Like A Crow, originally written for a children's choir, is simple in its self-sufficiency.
From One Another is an eulogy for a toxic relationship given the most graceful pop
setting. Mitchell's love for piano balladry is showcased on Lucky Stars, while Today
Tonight is kinetic, dynamic guitar pop at its finest. Across their powerful, delicate,
luminous second album "Her", Totally Mild move through light and shade with silky
finesse. "A shining talisman for the heartbroken" – Pitchfork
Stevens, The - Good
Stevens, The
Good
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Chapter Music)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Melbourne scratchy pop favourites the Stevens return with their second album Good.
18 short songs, alternately frenetic or laconic, packed with twists and hooks that
merge lo-fi outsider songcraft with 70s prog wizardry and classic rock swagger. The
Stevens formed in 2011 around guitarists Alex Macfarlane (Twerps, Tyrannamen) and
Travis MacDonald, and were soon joined by bassist Gus Lord (Twerps, Boomgates,
Tyrannamen) and drummer Matt Harkin. Chapter released their debut album A
History Of Hygiene in late 2014. The album was written up by Pitchfork and The
Guardian, reviewed by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts and played on BBC6. The
Stevens toured the US in 2015, playing Gonerfest on the back of killer single Thirsty
Eye. In Australia they have played with Wire, Parquet Courts, Real Estate and others.
The Stevens recorded Good in Melbourne bedrooms/jam rooms throughout 2016,
and once again employed the services of New Zealand mastering engineer Tex
Houston, veteran of a thousand Flying Nun releases. Alex and Gus from The Stevens
have spent the last couple of years as the newest members of Twerps, with Alex
drumming on their 2015 album Range Anxiety, and Gus joining on bass a short time
later.

Gregor - Silver Drop Black Vinyl Edition
Gregor
Silver Drop Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Chapter Music)
17,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Silver Drop is the debut album by young Melbourne pop eccentric Gregor .The album is a
personal opus recalling Arthur Russell, Durutti Column and Talking Heads. Gregor was
first heard via 2016 cassette Thoughts & Faults on Chapter Music, which Stereogum
described as "Talking Heads meets Trolls." Playful and idiosyncratic, the tape was the work
of an artist still learning how to open up. Silver Drop takes the restless, inquisitive spirit of
his music and applies it to his own interior emotional world. The artist himself says "Silver
Drop is the result of a yearning to free myself from lyrical inhibitions that, in the past, saw
me disguise my thoughts behind timid metaphors and hide my voice behind poor mixing,
obnoxious effects and low volumes." So alongside propulsive pop moments like This Heat
or Fishing Net there are also deep, unsparing reflections like Revise Me, I'll Prove It To
You and the album's stunning title track. Silver Drop is a remarkable record, about as
touching as anything you've heard, and similarly striking for its musical adventurousness.
Spacious and delicate, but peppered with acerbic pop moments and extended, loping
grooves. "Sly experimentation rearranges the drabness of reality into something ultimately
intriguing" – Stereogum

Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Restless Faithful Desperate Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 1984 | EU | Reissue (Chapter Music)
18,99 €*
Release:1984 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
First ever vinyl reissue for landmark 1984 private press folk-psych album by
Connecticut duo. The extraordinary creative partnership of New Haven, CT duo
Kath Bloom and Loren Connors, has haunted psych-folk fans ever since the early 80s.
Kath taught herself guitar during shifts as a janitor at a New Haven cemetery, while
Loren's free-form idiosyncratic style had been developing since the late 60s. Between
1981 and 1984, the duo recorded two live and four studio albums, mostly selfreleased
in tiny quantities. Early on, their music mixed folk and blues traditionals with
a handful of Kath's vulnerable, moving originals. By the later albums the songs were all
Kath's - her fragile voice and subdued finger-picking set against Loren's abstract but
always supportive playing. Together the duo created a sound almost impossibly
emotional and haunting. Restless Faithful Desperate emerged in 1984, in an edition of
200-300 copies. As her creativity accelerated, Kath's songs became looser and more
intuitive, but Restless contains one of her most gorgeously realised composition s
Look at Me. Loren's long-term collaborator Robert Crotty contributes extra guitar on
a couple of tracks. After reissuing four of Kath & Loren's albums on CD in the late
2000s, Chapter now embarks on the first ever vinyl reissues for these remarkable
records. Expect more volumes in early 2019.

School Damage - A To X Colored Vinyl Edition
School Damage
A To X Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | AUS | Original (Chapter Music)
19,99 €*
Release:2018 / AUS – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
To X is the second album by Melbourne DIY pop quartet School Damage (no relation
to the Canadian band of the same name). The new album focuses their simultaneously
sharp and wobbly DIY pop aesthetic, taking in the wooziness of Young Marble Giants,
the bite of Devo and the busy melodies of the Television Personalities. A To X comes
hot on the heels of School Damage's instantly loveable 2017 debut, which earned the
band raves from Brooklyn Vegan, Noisey and BBC6 among others. Formed as a
bedroom pop project for Carolyn Hawkins (Chook Race, Parsnip) and Jake Robertson
(Ausmuteants, Hierophants, Frowning Clouds), School Damage now include Jeff Raty on
drums and Dani Damage on bass. They have released cassettes and 7"s on various labels,
including a 7" for UK label Upset The Rhythm. They've played King Gizzard's festival
Gizzfest and shared stages with The Bats, Tropical Fuckstorm and NO ZU. About the
new album, Carolyn says: "A To X is about trying (and failing) to find patterns in the
overwhelming jumble of activities involved in being alive. We were going to call it In
Alphabetical Order but I guess we never quite made it to Z!"

Iconic Australian psych rock quintet Beaches return with epic double LP Second Of

and propulsive pop nuggets. The album was recorded in Melbourne with
engineer/producer John Lee (Totally Mild, Lost Animal). Artwork is by the bandâ??s
Ali McCann, with design by renowned artist Darren Sylvester. Beaches' self-titled
2008 debut was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize, and included in glossy

playing SXSW and Austin Psych Fest, and shared stages with Roky Erickson,

Already revered as sprawling, swirling psych overlords, Second Of Spring is Beaches'
undeniable magnum opus.

Unstoppable heat-beat pioneers NO ZU unleash a remix 12" of tracks from 2016
album Afterlife, reworked by 80s punk-funk icons A Certain Ratio and Jonny Sender
of Konk, as well as the band themselves. The Body2Body2Body EP sees NO ZU's
dark, mutant punk-funk reworked by two of the masters of the genre. Manchester
heroes A Certain Ratio, who are about to have their entire back catalogue reissued
by Mute Records, ventured into the studio for the first time in eight years to record
a wholly reconfigured version of NO ZU track Body2Body, incorporating elements
of their own Do The Du to create the Do The Du ZU Mix. Jonny Sender from New
York 80s legends Konk did his own club-centric take on key Afterlife single Spirit
Beat. NO ZU themselves have remixed both Body2Body and Spirit Beat to complete
the four track EP.

Release:2016 / AU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The debut album by Brisbane trio The Goon Sax. At the time of the recordings Louis Forster, James Harrison and Riley Jones all were 17-18 years old. They make pop music, love The Pastels, Talking Heads, Galaxie 500, Bob Dylan and Arthur Russell and on 'Up To Anything' they managed to pull off the almost impossible: to capture the awkwardness, self-doubt and visceral excitement of teenage life, while still in the thick of actually living it.
