Artist: BRENT LEWIIS ENSEMBLE
Title: Refreshing Hemorrhage
Format: 7"
Label: BUFMS
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Both versions of "People," the aloof masterpiece by Mancunian iconoclasts Gods Gift, are covered simultaneously on the A Side, as BRENT LEWIIS shambles along on fuzz guitar, warped keyboards, and Colour Out Of Space field recordings, while the imperious SYLVIA KASTEL intones her dispassionate but resolutely negative critique of mankind. The B Side continues with a severely bent cover of both versions of "O Jackie O," itself a damaged charm song by Chicago trio ONO, here performed on messed-up kazoo, holiday wrapping paper tube, and tape-manipulated field recordings from the swamp where Annette Funicellos head was buried by The Allman Bros. An unhealthy tape piece brings the record its queasy conclusion. Overall, totally appalling, but in a good way, like the talent show scene in One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest. Edition of 100." -BUFMS.

Artist: BRENT LEWIIS ENSEMBLE/SILVIA KASTEL/NINNI MORGIA
Title: Fix It Again, Tony
Format: LP
Label: BUFMS
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"This first-time collaboration by avatars of the new generation of European improv and blue-haired spazimodo mutants is something of a gloriously awkward thwack marathon of crumbled guitar noise, otherworldly howls, and stuff falling down stairs. The spontaneous recordings, performed in a single 90-minute session, are cut-up, multi-tracked, looped, and reassembled into thirty-two pieces that are more scrambled than the unrealized fears of an acute entomophobe, and, according to NINNI MORGIA, "sometimes sound like Twin Infinitives chewed by Polyphemus." Cover art by the amazing TODD EMMERT. Edition of 175." -BUFMS.

Title: Induced Musical Spasticity
Format: 4LP + CD Box Set
Label: BUFMS
Country: USA
Price: $60.00
"Induced Musical Spasticity commemorates the nascent pollination-in the musty shadows of the real ersatz Sherwood Forest, a couple hundred miles north of San Francisco-of the BUTTECOUNTY FREE MUSIC SOCIETY, an apocryphal institution that encouraged anything and nothing, in musical and amusical contexts, sometimes intentionally, sometimes because no one knew any better or cared. Includes highbrow concept tracks by THE MARQUES (brothers COLE and STEVE MARQUIS), UNLIKELY MODERNISTS, AMBIVALENT DOSAGE, DILWHIP, HYPNAGOGIC JERK, HALLUCINATORY COMPANION (aka BARBARA MANNING and Cole Marquis). Ripe dementia by LAWRENCE CRANE & JOHN YOUNG, TOPS INC., RORY LYONS, ZIPLOK, SIDNEY AFRIKA, THE CONDUITS, LUCIAN TIELENS, and RICHARD STREETER. And then youve got primitard rock dunt by THE FLAMBOYANT OFFALS, WALKING JOCK, DEAD BOY 3, and shockingly raw 28TH DAY material that predates most anyones idea of the original lineup of that influential band. THE BRENT LEWIIS ENSEMBLE pollutes the lions share of real estate with a side-long tape cut-up a la Faust Tapes called "Goat Embryo (Covered With Glue)," and their entire Industrial Barbecue set. Two-thirds of the material here was previously released (translation: a few dozen cassettes were dubbed one at time and passed through the hands of people in the same rural Northern California area code 25 years ago). All the relics in this boxset are likely unheard by anyone not specifically mentioned above." -BUFMS

Artist: GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION
Title: Reverse Atheism
Format: Double LP
Label: BUFMS
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"A lifetime swimmer in the deep end of The Other," says Angela Sawyer, "BARBARA MANNING sings grace-given melodies about things truly next to godliness, filtered through the dark glass of SEYMOUR GLASSs foreboding and beatific gauntlet of manipulation. The gospel interrupted. Confronting spirituality on its own terms, GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION nip from many chalices." Barely faithful cover versions (XTC, Gods Gift, Hank Williams, The Osmonds, Edgar Winter, The Birthday Party, New Creation), with varying degrees of overhaul, mangling and looseness of interpretation, emerge like seared remnants of a torched London happening from 1966.   Guest speakers include Lucian Tielens (Brent Lewiis Ensemble), Bruce Russell (The Dead C.), Patricia Rowland (Vomit Launch), Jett Hotcomb (The Talented Hairdos) Thurston Graham (Resistance Works), Scott Simmons (Eat Skull), Dave Gulbis (Celine Dion) Andrew Murphy (Celine Dion, Forked, Smooch), Titch Turner (The Vaticans), Emiko Saito (Obsessive-Compulsive Cat), Cristian Ceia (Romania), Matt Mumper (Beor The Friendly Thing, The Helper), Toni Smith (HappyLucky Design), and Rainbow Cartwheel (This Is Yvonne Lovejoy).  Guest musicians include Flavor Station (Ukuzuna) on ukuleles and vocals, Alastair Galbraith (A Handful of Dust) on violin, Doug Pearson (International Hello) on electronics, Black Rose (This Is Yvonne Lovejoy) on keyboards, and Earl Kuck (Tedium House) on small motors.  Texts by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Dan Ashwander, Wayne Bent, John F. Kennedy, Flannery OConnor, Hugo Ball, Rayva Liliana, and Hippocrates traverse the spectrum of belief, resulting in a migraine coexistence of skepticism, Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists, Scientology, paranoid schizophrenia, doomsdays cults, Hinduism, evangelism, Catholicism, witchcraft and wizardry, guardian angels, Armageddon, rapture, post-apocalypse, Illuminati, satanism, existential despair, purgatory, creationism and intelligent design, Darwinism, conspiracy and hoax, the Tarot, human sacrifice, Sikhs, ascension, royalty, cargo cults, divine right, fatalism, Western medicine, oaths, incantation, cosmic retribution, excommunication, alien abduction, the occult, pagans, infidels, heathens, mind control, prophecy, remote prayer, and, naturally, atheism." - BUFMS.

Artist: VOMIT LAUNCH
Title: Shocking Early Works Vol. 1
Format: 7"
Label: BUFMS
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Three raw living room and live recordings from 1985, documenting the first three months of the groups existence, imbued with decadence and vitriol. Repetitive profanity, spartan adornment, outward-looking disgust and contempt take centerstage on "Swelling Admiration," a tune with less dance groove than a riderless bike getting hit by a car. Honest, a skipping Suicide album sounds like "Bohemian Rhapsody" in comparison. The oblivion-embracing ode to defeatism "The Only Way Is Down" conveys, with flourishes such as impatient sighs, blase moans and flickering drum machine, distaste for the ubiquitous, neon-colored optimism of mid-80s fratboy / sorority girl airheads. Overdriven and sloppy in places, its pulse is insistent yet dire. Flippers signature tune "Sex Bomb" is stripped of all its properties, pretty much, thanks in no small part to the hand-held condenser mic recording; most of what remains is the noise of the audience in the room and the only thing potent enough to slice though it-singer PATRICIA ROWLANDs psychotic screaming. Deep-end bonkers. Includes vintage liner notes by LINDY LETTUCE." -BUFMS.
