Title: #1
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"First issue of mysterious Neil Campbell / Vibracathedral-related outfit. No info on here, no track titles, no personnel, no nuthin. Just 7 tracks spread over 44 minutes - electroid warble, psychedelic noise squidge, screwy mixing, faustian shifts, presbyterian techno, lush loopage, ecstacy damage."

Title: #10
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"Recording of the ASC power trio, live at Subcurrent festival in Glasgow, April 2006. Neil Campbell and Tirath Singh Nirmala throw down string/wind/electro action which is then mangled by Richard Youngs brutal FX. Heavy liquid 35 minute suite in four movements." - Astral Social Club.

Title: #11
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $12.00
"Content this time around is highly nitrous, with much overloaded top-end twinkle. Check for some particularly screwy (and often barely-recognisable) versions of tracks set for release on QBICO and Important Records later this year, taking the demented recent ASC live persona and twisting it further with heavy collage/layering techniques. Offset this with remedial drumbox stumble and mysterious processed tracks and you know theres only one hotel you can be checking into. Edition of 150 in colour ASC corporate house-style. 7 tracks, 42 minutes." - Astral Social Club.

Title: #12
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $12.00
"More jams culled from sessions both live in the field and at home, again sometimes touching on alternate-universe takes on tracks destined for LP and CD issue. Huge chord swathes, babbling ectoplasm rituals, crunching delay unit swing, weird time tricks, scattershot beats, all propped up with shards of the patented ASC heavy tonal foundation. Edition of 150 in colour ASC corporate house-style. 8 tracks 44 minutes." - Astral Social Club.

Title: #14
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $12.50
"Culled from live shows in Paris and London during May 2007, this may be the most blasted ASC instalment yet. Not much room for subtle interplay or nuthin - more like Campbell isolated and boiled down all the most antagonistic and atavistic bits of his previous discography and served em up in one big throbbing heap. In Paris, blown-out Moroderisms melt into a gritty string and electronics meltdown, which in turn gives way to a hollering feral beat-up beat climax. The London gig, with Stool Man (aka Stewart Walden of "durian durian" non-fame) on vocals and wild analogue synth, simulates alien pop radio transmitted through a million miles of warble and static, colliding with toxic holler and smashed-up pro-techno shudder. Its a high water mark of ASC dementia and wild beauty, no question. 8 tracks, 38 minutes. Edition of 150." - Astral Social Club.

Live in Paris and London. Edition of 160.

Artist: ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB
Title: #17
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $12.50
"Taking time out from the works-in-progress schtick, this collection centres around most of an unreleased LP from 2006 (left in limbo due to label never quite getting off the ground) that makes formative excursions into the more phased looping beat aspects of the ASC that have come very much to the forefront in the intervening time. Three of the four more recent tracks that fill this one out take a different tack, and upturn the applecart with beatless overload, bells, multi-speed concussion and the like. The closing track is all handclaps and technoid blats, but reconfigured through a miasma of tone skroink and delay so youd be hard pressed to get your freak on in any civilised way." - Astral Social Club

Title: #21
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
"Seven more slabs from the basement lab, recorded 2008-10 - ersatz birdsong, scalpel electronics, super-trem strings, blunt instrument digital mutations, fried static constructions, throbs, clicks, choirs of angels + the sound of haywire. Edition of 100. 7 tracks, 37 minutes." - ASC.

Artist: ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB
Title: #7
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $12.50
"Kicks off kinda new age, sampling a Mick Flower blissed-out groove pretty early on, before taking a dive into total alien territory, only to be brought back to earth by a homely pop number before the last 4 tracks twist it all over the shop again, comprising as they do mash-ups/remixes by the enigmatic Tirath Singh Nirmala (aka "the artist formerly known as John Clyde-Evans). 10 tracks, 47 minutes." - Neil Campbell.

Title: #8
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"After a winter spent with new baby, jamming aphex/theo parrish (dazed daytimes) and axolotl/dead machines (graveyard shift), comes the new Astral Social disk. In here, there⿿s a mix of recent obsessions = raw reel-to-reel edits, steamrollered riffing, garage dream music, splattered eurodisco, FX madness all culminating in a deep wallow in beatless birdsong ecstacy. Respendent in full-colour artwork for the first time. 5 tracks, 40+ mins." - Astral Social Club.

Title: #8-16 mp3
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
"Following the steady demand for the 1 - 7 MP3 CDR, this second volume houses 256kbps rips of nine whole volumes of the ongoing ASC saga. 65 tracks spread over 333 minutes, including live and studio recordings from 2005-2008. Some of these appeared in miniscule editions for specific events (40 copies for #9, 24 copies for #16, etc), while others enjoyed slightly longer in the sun (#14 ran to 160 copies), but all are now otherwise out-of-print." -Astral Social Club

Title: s/t
Format: CDR
Label: Astral Social Club
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
"Two demented "rock" tracks, recorded live in the Astral Social Club, April 2006, presumably by the usual suspects. Bozo riffs, wayward drums/machines, robot vox, dunderhead fx like a timeslipped Hawkwind on a bum trip? Yeah, right. Nineteen minutes, thats enough." - Neil Campbell.
