Artist: DETROIT, EDDY
Title: Black Crow Gazebo
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Eddy Detroit returns with a brand-new LP! The legend refuses to diminish. Eddy Detroit crafts eight new songs full of his trademark twisted folk, satanic Americana, and trance voodoo magic. This album ventures into the deranged psychosis of the Phoenix AZ characters that inhibit Eddys world. Multiple-personality girlfriends, twisted and rouge hanger-goners, and life as a street musician in the infernal Arizona summer heat. Another cast of local musicians are on board for this record that features cello, ocean drum, piano, guitar, bongos, and violin. This is all capped off by the B-side, a deep, trance-inducing descent into Dantes Inferno that features Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls) on vocals, Doug Clark (Victory Acres/Feederz) on synthesizer, and Eddy Detroit on bongos -- overlaid with a recording of Eddy Detroit waxing on about his extraordinary life. "Toe Sucker Beach" is meant as an homage to The Velvet Undergrounds "The Gift" -- a track that can be listened to as a whole or as a hard pan, with the demented instrumental in one channel and Eddys reminiscences in the other channel. This record is another swan dive into the brilliant mind of one of the most original outsider musicians out there. Limited edition of 400. Released to coincide with Eddys Detroits first European tour in the fall of 2016.” - Assophon.

Artist: DETROIT, EDDY
Title: Immortal Gods
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Eddy Detroit is an underground legend. He was a key fixture in the fertile Phoenix, AZ scene of the early 80s (that included such luminaries as the Meat Puppets, Sun City Girls, Maybe Mental, Feederz, JFA etc.). Immortal Gods was the first release on his Pan Records label (his second LP, Philosophers Journey would be the only other). Both records were privately released in miniscule editions, are now and have been rather difficult to obtain for many years, ensuring them as holy grails for collectors of the exotic, cult, folk, beat, punk, and outsider rock musical canon. Immortal Gods was recorded and released in 1982. It features Alan Bishop and Charles Gocher (Sun City Girls), Dan and Mary Clark (Feederz/Victory Acres), Jesse Srgoncik (aka James Verlaine aka J. Akkari from Paris 1942, which featured the Velvet Undergrounds drummer Moe Tucker), and Brandon and Audrey Curtis backing Eddy and his African, voodoo, Hitchcock musical vision. It is a timeless masterpiece. The LP jacket cover is quite possibly the apex in outsider photography and demented vision. It features Eddy and a lady friend (a woman he picked up for the cover shot because she had the bone structure he was looking for) on horseback with Eddy holding his head in his outstretched hand. A perfect vision for the music contained within. Assophon Records is proud to present this album in its original format for the current generation to tango with." - Assophon. Highly recommended!

Artist: DETROIT, EDDY
Title: Shock-A-Lock-A-Lickum
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Where to start with Eddy Detroit? Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, it was there, in 1966, that he was in attendance for the first Iguanas gigs (Iggy Stooges first band). He joined the White Panther party in Detroit and was "there" for the pre-punk sounds of The Stooges and MC5 ("We all smoked dope on the state Capitol and got beat up by the cops"). In the early 70s he traveled to London, where he stalked Marc Bolan and tried to seduce Tony Viscontis then-girlfriend Mary Hopkin. It was with Ms. Hopkin, when he was dropping off a demo tape at the Apple store, that he witnessed the moment when Ringo found out that The Beatles had broken up! (Weve got the pictures to prove it!) In the mid-70s, Detroit settled in Hollywood and started The Terminal Wave Band (bongo/synth/punk) which was the soundtrack to the hippy/biker/S&M/satanic/polyamorous scene that Detroit ruled in dingy, underground LA -- thats when he wasnt trying to seduce Nico (The Velvet Underground) to become one of his muses and lovers ("True story bub"). When rents in LA got too much for an acid-fried biker/S&M/punk, Eddy moved to Phoenix, AZ, and was seminal in fostering one of the most interesting underground musical scenes of the early 80s. He was an unofficial member of the Sun City Girls, toured with the Meat Puppets and Mighty Sphincter, and was the pith-helmeted shaman-in-residence at his club The Grotto! This LP contains recordings made from 1979 to 2010. They run the gamut of Detroits musical landscape, from the UK acid-folk of Tyrannosaurus Rex and The Incredible String Band through bongo-fueled satanic calypso to his new phase as a troubadour recounting tales of hobos, whores, and one-eyed jacks from the old west. Limited edition of 500 copies." - Assophon.

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: Gilding The Lillies
Format: Double LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Double LPs tend to make quite the statement. The proof is in the pudding, as they say. Just listen to classics like Trout Mask Replica, Double Nickles On The Dime, Lake, Twin Infinitives, Harsh 70s Reality....well, Factums have thrown their hat into the proverbial ring with Gilding The Lilies. This mythic release has been rumored and debated for some time and to say this is their crowing achievement is an understatement. Factums have been shrouded in mystery, rarely playing live -- this hermetic Seattle/Chicago combo have been releasing rustic/futuristic artifacts for a variety of labels over the last few years. On Gilding The Lilies, all the ideas come together: sci-fi surf rock, post-apocalyptic murder ballads, musique concrète anthems, hell, on Gilding The Lilies they even dedicate the latter half of this masterpiece to Far Eastern exotica and incorporate sitars and tablas. Yeah, this aint no Beatles trip, its a Factums take on their inner chakra or pith helmet exploitation or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Limited one-time pressing of 700 copies." -Assophon

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: OST: A Primitive Future
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Primitive Future indeed! Its 4000 a.d. and human kinds fate from a binge of manifest destiny has finally collapsed on itself. Now were back to the basics. The jungle is in charge again. The Factums have crafted a soundtrack to this dark and mysterious place. A world where the listener is the prey and this record is the hunter. This is exploratory music, a melding of rusted out kraut debris, dead c. carnage and lost in time sci-fi rock moves. edition of 400 copies." - Assophon

Artist: HENNEMAN, SIMON
Title: Black Magic and Mustache
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Seattle-based Simon Hennemans first solo vinyl release is here. Mr. Henneman has worn many hats in the musical vortex of the Seattle sub-underground, most "famously" as one of the Diminished Men, who released an LP on the Sun City Girls Abduction label in 2009. That LP gave the lucky few who procured a copy an idea of the talents of that great band. Here, Mr. Henneman strikes out on his own and creates a solo journey of a much more intimate palette. Playing every instrument on the record (guitars, bass, saxophones, clarinet, percussion, keys), Mr. Henneman evokes a mood and mystery unmatched. From the ethno jazz/noir played in a Turkish harem vibe to the soundtrack for flipping through a Raymond Carver novella illustrated by Raymond Pettibon, this LP slithers into the subconscious and throws you against a back alley wall to seduce you into making a real bad decision seem OK! Limited edition of 300 copies only." -Assophon.

Artist: JAY, TOMMY
Title: Tommy Jays Tall Tales Of Trauma
Format: Double LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Assophon present an expanded reissue of Tommy Jays Tall Tales Of Trauma, originally released on cassette in 1986. "Tucked away between I-71 & US-62 lies nestled the quaint, speed trap hamlet of Harrisburg, Ohio. With its humble ambience, affable familiarity, weekend fish fries and Christian B&B (mind the sherry, brother, for it is the Lords nectar), blink twice and you might think youve been transported into a 21st century Winesburg, Ohio. Only now the emphasis is on a new chapter, The songsmith-concerning Tommy Jay. In a converted barn just off Main St, Jay and friends have been forging a massive catalog of music, both original and cover variations, for a solid four decades. Fellow towns-person and erstwhile participant, one Mike Rep Hummel (Serpent Mound expert, croquet enthusiast) was the first to make these recordings available when he issued a cassette of the proceedings under the title, Tommy Jays Tall Tales Of Trauma via his homespun DIY label, Old Age/No Age, in 1986. For anyone prescient enough to lock in back then, they were staggered by talent, far removed from the stars of High Street (Great Plains, Gibson Bros, Willie Phoenix). A singer/songwriter par excellence, Tommy Jay ably forged a hybrid of pre-speedball Stephen Stills with post Iron Cross-headed Lou Reed, the results of which come across as both effortless and visionary. Some 20 years later, Tall Tales would finally receive its long deserved elevation to the vinyl format (this time through Columbus Discount Records), and was now being heard by a new generation of ears, garnered immediate success, quickly sold out and inexplicably was never repressed. In the intervening limbo, copies were more sought than found, lucky bumpkins forking upwards to three figures for pride of ownership. Recently, Assophon, a US label with Jim Rockford-like determination, swooped in to un-fuck this glaring wart. Plus, time and patience being the powerful warriors they are, the new, expanded edition is brimming with a whole second platter of hoot; 13 unreleased tracks whats rarely been discerned this side of Tonys Coneys. Which all goes to say that the new and improved, 30th anniversary edition of Tommy Jays Tall Tales Of Trauma is, to paraphrase the words of the late, great Randy Poffo, The record the whole world, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus... Or anywhere else is waiting for." - Tom Lax Lynx.

Artist: SEA DONKEYS
Title: Live At The S.S. Marie Antoinette
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The Sea Donkeys 2nd long player is here. All it took to make it happen was to start their own label. Enter Assophon Records, The Sea Donkeys in-house publishing empire is born. asso-001 Live at the S.S. Marie Antoinette LP is the culmination of a sound only dreamt of by todays cognoscenti. This record does not belong to any scene or movement or marketable new buzz word. This record is without geography. It is about songs! Imagine the Godz (ESP-Disk vintage) recording at the Smegma studios. Or the Velvets in Brazil. Imagine just imagine. This record is a blend of seductive pastoral folk rock tunes, free jazz reveries, shimmering strum drone, and unhinged rock!" -Assophon. Edition of 400.

Artist: WAH
Title: Travellers Station
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Assophon present Travellers Station, the second album from WAH, the collaborative effort led by guitarist Simon Henneman (Diminished Men) and drummer Gregg Keplinger (master drummer and Charles Gochers doppelganger). WAH have created a modern masterpiece of modal, spiritual and free expression. Coming off like a late, classic RVG session for Impulse, Travellers Station is snarled with the force of a pummeling rock band by two artful leaders of Seattles underground jazz scene. Travellers Station boasts ten musicians including bassists Luke Bergman and Carmen Rothwell, vibraphonists Bob Rees and Jacques Willis, horn players Ray Larson and Neil Welch, vocalist Katie Jacobson, and percussionist and co-producer Dave Abramson. The breathtaking energy of WAHs legendary NW performances is captured here with razor sharp production that finds room for fiery free jazz, psychedelic drone, big belting rhythms, and cosmic anthems. Fans of the classic era of 68-78 (Strata-East/Human Arts/Sonny Sharrock/private/spiritual/BYG/loft) jazz scenes in America and France will dig immensely." - Assophon.
