This Just In: THIS HEAT

This week’s in-stock list (below) is so freakin’ huge, I’m just gonna cut to the chase on the feature. This Heat’s catalog has FINALLY been reissued! These records fall nothing short of legendary (in the underground), and are essentials for any fan of experimental, post-everything. People have been begging for reissues for years and waiting patiently once news dropped a couple years back that they were finally gonna happen. If you’re one of the patient ones, you already know what a big deal this is (and probably pre-ordered from us – thank you!). If not, and you want to get your head infiltrated ASAP, get on This Heat fast! -MLE

This Heat – Deceit LP, Health & Efficiency LP, S/T LP
Listen: Deceit (Full Album)
“Isn’t it so often the case that the most innovative works of art – the ones that break the ground where others follow – are the ones that seem to reach only the ears of those who take those ideas and run with them?

So it is with This Heat and their releases – 1979’s This Heat, 1980’s Health and Efficiency, and 1981’s Deceit. Within each of these, the seeds of post-punk, avant rock, noise rock and post-rock can be found.

Formed in Brixton, a multicultural, and – at the time – down-at-heel part of south London, This Heat were born into a music scene in rapid flux, first thanks to the punk explosion and then via new wave and its myriad offshoots into pop, rock and art-rock. But while many sought to apply punk attitude to chart-friendly sounds, This Heat were concocting some of the most experimental ideas ever committed to tape, taking influence from musique concrète, krautrock, the burgeoning industrial scene and even the dub reggae blasting out in their home borough.

Celebrating This Heat’s 40th anniversary in 2016, Modern Classics Recordings will re-issue the band’s catalog with full co-operation of surviving members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. Four decades on, the tireless efforts of This Heat’s process can once again be a revelation for new audiences.” -Light In The Attic/Modern Classics
