Known as one of the most widely innovative and barrier-shattering bands to emerge from the 70’s post-punk era, UK legends The Pop Group will finally see their classic 1980 album We Are Time re-issued both on CD and digitally for the first time later this month. Also being released in October is Cabinet Of Curiosities, a brand new, nine-track compilation. You’re going to want to check out “Colour Blind.”

Stooges guitarist James Williamson is about the release solo album. Titled Re-Licked, the album features 16 songs that were originally penned by Williamson and Iggy Pop in 1973/74 as the follow-up to the band’s quintessential album Raw Power, but were never officially recorded. Now, some 40 years later, Williamson has revisited the tracks with a powerhouse lineup of musicians and singers. Check out “C**k In My Pocket” below.

Although The Libertines only just reunited a few months back, guitarist Carl Barât has already announced a solo album with his new band, The Jackals. Lead single “Glory Days” is full of wailing guitars and classic Brit rock snarl. I’m sold.
