News: Rockadrome to reissue Icecross in early 2013

In news that is a bit out of scope for the CDRWL, but highly interesting to me all the same, is Rockadrome's announcement that they will reissue Icecross' sole album, first issued in 1973. There are a couple of boots floating about on this title, so it's nice to see the album finally receive an authentic CD (& LP) reissue.  I first stumbled across an original of this Icelandic album way back in 1988. I had no idea what it was, but it looked cool! For me, it's one of the all-time great hard rock albums - with doomy lyrics, ominous compositions, raw electric guitar and speedy drumming. This album was at least 7 years ahead of its time - perhaps even more when considering the retro rock movement of the last 15 years. I'll be buying the CD reissue as soon as it's available.

News: Strawberry Rain to reissue Leong Lau's "Dragon Man"!

In the "oh wow!" category, comes this exciting announcement from Strawberry Rain. We have indirect (3rd party) contact with the label, but it appears to me they are quickly establishing themselves as the Canadian Shadoks - a label dedicated to reissuing the rarest albums from some of the world's most exotic locations (Zambia, Nigeria, Thailand, Iran). But today's post centers around Australian Leong Lau, one of the CDRWL's top discoveries of 2010! The label, according to their website, promises that liner notes will be from Lau himself. Outstanding news. Our review of both Lau albums here. "Dragon Man" is definitely the only one of the two that needs a reissue IMO.

In addition to this - the debut album by Rictus will be available later this month! I've updated the post with more info from the label.
