Get RECKLESS this Autumn…..

Reckless Records are releasing THREE albums on 29 September.

New Feeling is the first ever official full-length album from Nottingham’s late 70s powerpop saviours THE FAVOURITES. Rising from the ashes of Stiff-signed pub rockers Plummet Airlines, the band released two now sought-after singles before imploding, with frontman Darryl Hunt finding fame as bassist in The Pogues. New Feeling collects both singles, b-sides and 10 other tracks on deluxe vinyl with a free CD.



Half Sentences is the long-awaited new album from London-based psychedelic rockers THE GREEN RAY, formed in the late 90s by Ken Whaley and Richard Treece from the much loved 70s band Help Yourself. A year after Ken passed away in 2013, a reconfigured Green Ray began these recordings. This album features Richard Treece’s final contributions before his sad passing in 2015.




Following quickly on from January’s Journey To X, rejuvenated psych- punks THE BRAINIAC 5 return with their fourth full-length, We’re Ready! Starting out with an over-abundance of material from previous songwriting sessions, the Brainiacs have also taken a new look at tracks from their diverse back catalogue, as well as delivering up some shiny brand new songs.




The label arm of the international secondhand record store empire, Reckless Records’ inaugural release was the first Brainiac 5 album World Inside in 1988. Since then they have gone on to release a series of highly collectable albums from the likes of The Bevis Frond, Black Sun Ensemble, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Henry Kaiser and more. The label was relaunched in 2014 with the release of the Brainiac 5 anthology When Silence Was Sound.
