Artist: BRIGMAN, GEORGE
Title: Jungle Rot
Format: LP
Label: Anopheles
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"A reissue of the 1975 debut album from Baltimore guitar slayer GEORGE BRIGMAN. Originally released as a private press LP when Brigman was eighteen years old, Jungle Rot is an uncut diamond of raw fuzz guitar-drenched acid-blues and ripping psych. This is the first legitimate reissue and the sound quality exceeds not only bootleg editions, but the original release itself."

Artist: CLARK, TODD TAMANEND
Title: Nova Psychedelia (1975-1985)
Format: Double CD
Label: Anopheles
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Outside of his native Pennsylvania-West Virginia stomping grounds, Todd Tamanend Clark remains one of the least known North American underground artists in the lost music DIY field of his era, considering he has collaborated with and shared time with many of his peers over the years (Cheetah Chrome, Allen Ravenstine, Stiv Bators), as well as progenitors (Dorothy Moskowitz of United States of America, Robert Moog, William Burroughs), his significant body of recorded (and printed) work was always made in small runs and has remained elusive and highly collectible to this day. This 2CD set collects all of his released vinyl recordings from 1975-1985, including those issued as The Stars (1975 45 rpm and eight-track cartridge material), The Eyes ( New Gods: Aardvark Thru Zymurgy LP from 1977), Todd Clark Group ( Were Not Safe! LP from 79), and Todd Clark ( Into the Vision LP from 84, plus two 45s released in the first half of the 80s). He has since appended his name to reflect his Native American roots. This document features a 20 page booklet, with Todds own personal history included, with notes on each track (all 33 of em, total time for this set is over 150 minutes of music), and a host of great photos and artwork. His muse may remain a mystery after you experience this wide range of sounds, which might very well be Anopheles Records most ambitious and out there release to date, but he leaves tangible clues and some out and out hooks with which to grab onto: great reworkings of Hungry (Paul Revere and the Raiders) and I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night (Electric Prunes), his bizarre slo-mo take on Two Thousand Light Years From Home (from his debut 45 from 75) are some points of reference, but its when Todd cuts loose on original material that his truly mesmerizing, bent vision takes hold of your cranium and refuses to let go. His personal magnetosphere is quite intoxicating, often challenging, and just plain hallucinatory. Thats Nova Psychedelia ..." - Anopheles.

Artist: DEBRIS
Title: Static Disposal
Format: CD
Label: Anopheles
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Finally a legit reissue of this mid-70s American monster. Although "discovered" pretty early on within the realms of private press mania, this album has never quite reached the hysterical peaks achieved by other strange artifacts of this era. Very detailed reissue work on the part of Anopheles, whove turned this out as one of the most finely detailed and richly presented documents of its type." - FE. "This legendary group from Chickasha, Oklahoma formed in 1975 and self-released their lone LP in 1976. A Dada/punk/psych masterpiece recorded in just under seven hours in Dec. 75, the LP and the individuals who created it have long been the subject of a great deal of mystery and conjecture due to their elusiveness, the mindblowing quality of the music as well as the provocative negative image bondage LP sleeve design. This expanded reissue includes all 11 original LP tracks in sparkling fidelity from the original master tapes along with 10 previously unissued rehearsal recordings (total time just over 76 minutes). Fully authorized by the band, this CD also features a 28 page booklet with rare photos, lyrics, and personal accounts by all three original members, including bassist Chuck Iveys tale of relocating to L.A. to participate in the nascent Dangerhouse punk scene, where he took the stage with the Randoms at the Masque benefit in Feb. 78. The Debris LP was also namechecked in Nurse With Wounds infamous listing of influential LPs included with their first album in 1979. In short, Debris cultivated its own dynamic musical vernacular, showing the influence of Captain Beefheart, the Stooges, early Roxy Music and other pre-punk mainstays of the time. Their closest contemporaries were Hearthan era Pere Ubu, Siren-era Chrome, Indiana-era MX-80 Sound and Canadian sonic miscreants Simply Saucer. The beautifully raw and untamed bonus cuts include two unreleased originals, five alternate takes to the LP tracks, covers of the Stooges Real Cool Time and John Cales Gun, as well as Other Things, a song originally recorded by Debris precursor group, Victoria Vein and the Thunderpunks." - Anopheles.

Artist: HOMESTEAD & WOLFE
Title: Our Times
Format: CD
Label: Anopheles
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
Subtitled: The Gold Star Tapes (1973-75). "Originally released in 1975, Homestead & Wolfes lone and unknown privately pressed LP is an artifact so lost to time, it has never appeared in any discography, list of rare records, or catalog, anywhere. However, exist it does, and now their story can be told. Anopheles Records has sat tight lipped on this discovery for the last year while researching and preparing this reissue from the original master tapes and with full cooperation of the group. Homestead & Wolfe was a folk-harmony group based around the United Methodist Good Samaritan church in Cupertino, CA. Comprised of two female lead vocalists, one male lead vocalist, and buttressed with superb male and female harmonies throughout, H&W performed original material in a rich, melodic folk-rock-country style that is well executed, as well as earnest and personal. These 15 tracks were recorded at the legendary Gold Star Studios in Hollywood between 1973-75. Engineered by Stan Ross, these recordings feature top flight studio musicianship from legendary wrecking crew drummer Hal Blaine, guitarist Ben Benay (Goldenrod, Darius), acoustic guitarist Al Casey, monster bass player Ray Pohlman, not to mention one of the worlds most renowned and respected pedal steel guitar players, Jay Dee Maness (Buck Owens, the Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo LP). The harmonies and arrangements of H&W recall both the Mamas and the Papas and the Carpenters at times, but much of the music deals with darker themes: the story of Wounded Knee told in See The Children Die, the organ fueled psychedelia of Your Freedoms In Question, aimed at the Nixon administration at the time, remains apropos today, and recalls the work of Growing Concern, Birmingham Sunday, Art of Lovin and the Poppy Family. There are plenty of surprises here, as we located 6 unreleased tracks to augment the 9 tracks on the original album, including the startlingly great and dynamic cut, Beat of the Drum, which sounds as if the Bangles were hired to front Goldenrod for a one off single. The full color 16 page booklet tells the story in their own words, features images of the touring group and recording sessions at Gold Star, and maintains the high standard of archival work Anopheles Records is known for. Homestead & Wolfe represents a highly unusual and strikingly original blend of unproven but talented young vocalists, top quality session players and engineering, and a truly rare chemistry that makes this one of the great folk-rock discoveries of the last 10 years." - Anopheles.

Artist: MAYPOLE
Title: The Real
Format: LP
Label: Anopheles
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Anopheles Records is proud to announce our latest archival release, the first ever authorized, high quality vinyl LP reissue of Baltimore, Marylands Maypole, whose sole album, The Real, was recorded in three days, July 1970, and released in early 1971, shortly before their label folded, dooming the album to stillborn status commercially at the time, and collector want list status today. The LP is an ambitious, 50-minute feast of tight harmonies, powerful arrangements, fluid improvisation, and flat out great songs, and serves as a touchstone for twin guitar-driven, West Coast-styled psychedelia, soaring power pop, and blistering hard rock - some even call it prog - everyone wants a piece of the Great One. If youve been looking for an LP to complete an imaginary trilogy with S.F. Sorrow and Parachute, then this is your tonic. The stature of Maypole has been muddied by the previous CD reissues, but this LP edition gets it right. Featuring state of the art remastering and pressing, a high quality full color tip on jacket featuring original artwork, and a full color insert loaded with lyrics, photos, and complete historical notes by Maypole founder, Dennis Tobell, this is the closest to classic psychedelia Anopheles Records has delved in to date, and were glad we didnt settle for something second rate - Maypole is The Real." - Anopheles.
