More Record Store Day previews in anticipation of this Saturday. Today SDE takes a look at some of what indie Fire Records has to offer.

Pulp‘s second album Freaks is pressed on two red vinyl records. This is the remastered and repackaged edition with all the bonus tracks from 2012’s reissue on the second vinyl.

Bored On The Fourth of July is the Lemonheads 1989 Peel Session. This white vinyl pressing contains four tracks: Mallo Cup, The Door, Circle of One and Clang Bang Clang.

Giant Sand’s debut Valley of Rain is expanded and remastered for its 30th Anniversary and becomes Beyond The Valley of Rain. The bonus LP features live and radio sessions from the same era and extensive liner notes from Howe Gelb.

Fire continue their Half Japanese series with a third volume of albums, this time from 1990-1995. The three albums in this box are pressed on black vinyl and are We Are They Who Ache With Amorous Love, Fire in the Sky, and Hot.

These releases are all available on Saturday 18 April via Independent Record Shops.

    Also on Fire Records, Close Lobsters’ 3-LP set “Firestation Towers: 1986-1989″ including “Forever Until Victory”, their singles collection, on vinyl for the first time.

    Right on Javier. Close Lobsters is THE ONE for Fire Records this year. The two best bands of the ’80’s (so-called) C-86 era were McCarthy and the Close Lobsters. Highly recommended to fans of The Smiths, Wedding Present, Go-Betweens, Orange Juice and Josef K (and, indeed, the logical next step for Postcard Records, had they carried on that long).

    And they’re back! Both sides if their incredible 2014 come-back 7″ here…

      You’re right too, Charles. as a Smiths fan I love both bands, Close Lobsters and McCarthy. Definitely I’m going to try to get Close Lobsters reissue and wait for McCarthy’s “I’m A Wallet” vinyl reissue through Optic Nerve Recordings. They’ll make my day.
