On May 10, Grönland Records releases a very bitchin' looking Neu! box set. Vinyl Box is a collector's item that features the three original Neu! albums, plus the never released Neu! '86 LP, and a live maxi-single entitled Neu! 72. A 36-page book is also included, along with codes for downloading all of the tracks. To top it off, you get a Neu! t-shirt and a logo stencil to create your own custom shirts. Check out recordstore.co.uk for more information, or www.neu2010.com. (Vinyl reissues of the three original Neu! albums are out now.)
The Fall release their 28th studio album, Your Future, Our Clutter, on April 26th on Domino in the UK. Out on CD and double LP, the album is Mark E. Smith's band "at their most rampant, most forward moving, bone shaking best."
J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and some other celebrated indie rockers put together the group Sweet Apple, whose Love & Desperation hits shelves on April 19. Granted, some guys are gonna buy it because of the scantily clad babes on the front (a la Roxy Music thirty years ago), but some might actually purchase it for the hard rocking quickies and wounding ballads.
