1 - COTTON, JOSIE - CONVERTIBLE MUSIC - (CD) 
KITTEN ROBOT


Originally released in 1982, Convertible Music kicked of a storied and perennial career of one of New Wave's most iconic voices. Famously featured in the seminal 1983 film CD Valley Girl, Josie Cotton performed in the film's prom scene both of her breakthrough singles, "He Could Be the One" and the controversial (still) "Johnny, Are You Queer?" This reissue represents the album's first appearance on Compact Disc with the LP's original artwork, plus the addition of bonus track "(Let's Do) The Blackout," which was the B-side of the single when it first appeared via Bomp Records. Lauded upon release, Convertible made a huge mark on the New Wave scene. AllMusicGuide called it "a classic of the whole California girly pop scene of the early '80s, on a level with the Go Go's (first and the debut) Bangles EP," adding "the songs, mostly written by Cotton herself or her producers, Bobby and Laron Paine, are neat '60s pastiches with elements of surf (the glorious opener, 'He Could Be the One'), Shangri-Las-style melodrama (the sultry 'I Need the Night Tonight'), and the Farfisa-driven swoony pop bliss ('Rockin' Love,' 'So Close')."

TRACKLISTING: 01. He Could Be The One 02. Rockin Love 03. Waitin For Your Love 04. So Close 05. I Need The Night Tonight 06. (lets Do) The Blackout / Bonus Track 07. Johnny Are You Queer? 08. Systematic Way 09. Another Girl 10. Bye, Bye Baby 11. No Pictures Of Dad 12. Tell Him

2 - CROWJANE - MATER DOLOROSA - (CD) 
KITTEN ROBOT


From Post-punk.com: "Mater Dolorosa, the incarnation of Mary pierced through the heart with seven swords, is a fitting title and matron for the solo debut of CrowJane. LA punk Legend Paul Roessler (Screamers, Nina Hagen, 45 Grave, Deadbeats), after becoming close friends with CrowJane while recording her band Egrets On Ergot, could see that she was in the grips of the kind of crushing woe that's so often the seed of hard-won transformation. Suspecting the rewards that awaited if she would risk shining a light on her own murk, Roessler took matters into his own hands, and all but locked her in his studio, Kitten Robot. Surrounding her with every available musical instrument, a pen, and some paper, he compelled her to face the rawness of loss, abuse, and addiction."Known for her work in California post-punk and deathrock ensemble Egrets on Ergot, performing as Sally and Nurse Heather in the twisted cabaret of The Deadbeats, plus fronting experimental outfit Prissy Whip, Crowjane debut solo LP has received rave press from Outburn, LA Weekly, Ghettoblaster, Under the Radar, and she appeared on the cover of Auxiliary fashion print magazine. The music has strains of L.A. deathrock from the '80s, and will be enjoyed by fans of Bjork, Siouxsie, and PJ Harvey.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Estrella 02. Terminal Secrets 03. Killer Of Peace 04. Delusion 05. Ergot Journey 06. Willow 07. The Pharmacy 08. Salty Breeze 09. Circular Valley 10. Mans World

3 - KIRA - KIRA - (CD) 
KITTEN ROBOT


Kira is the debut solo album by renowned bassist/songwriter/vocalist Kira. Known for being half of dos with Mike Watt, the duo recorded five album, the most recent of which, dos y dos was released in 2011. Kira is also known as the bassist with Black Flag. From the years 1984 to '86, Kira recorded five studio and two live albums with the profoundly influential band. Kira's ten tracks were recorded at Kitten Robot Studio and co-produced by Kira and the studio's primary engineer Paul Roessler (45 Grave/Screamers), also her older brother. The two have a long history of collaboration, dating back to their work in the original Twisted Roots alongside Pat Smear (Foo Fighters/Germs). Kira has labeled the music on this debut as Dark Minimalism. Always noted as an indispensable team player, on this release she is the focus: writing, singing, and letting the songs rest largely on the angular bass style that is oddly familiar when set apart from the groups she's been associated with over the years.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Silently 02. Avoiding 03. Trance 04. Worse Than Rude 05. Unsolicited Advice 06. Let It Go 07. The Ghosts 08. It Can't Be 09. What's Left 10. In The Quiet

The evidence of this wild and rowdy union is all over their debut album Motherfuckin' Rock 'n' Roll, a 10-song splatter-platter of dirty hard rock, chainsaw punk, outlaw country, and catchy hook-laden power-pop earworms by Eddie Spaghetti and Frank Meyer.The album features a guest turn by Knack guitarist Burton Averre on the Eddie and Frank version of the Knack's "My Sharona." Brian "Damage" Forsythe of Kix joins on a cover of "Heartache" as well as throughout the LP on the duo's originals. First single "I Think it Sucks (And I Don't Like It)" preceded the release with a video.
