Artist: 1/3 OCTAVE BAND
Title: Tarakohe/Ritual Of Gravity
Format: 7"
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"If youve ever heard of New Zealand musician Bill Wood, chances are that it was related to his work with Campbell Kneales Birchville Cat Motel. But Bill has his own line of space rock/guitar drone/massive atmopsherics as well, and he records them as 1/3 Octave Band. Woods music is new to my ears but its highly impressive. He takes a very maxist approach to drones, filling the pulses of his endless frontiers with shifting arrays of instrumental intrigue and ominously pulsing lights. A great thing, and on that thick Czech vinyl that weighs about a pound. What more could you want?" - Byron Coley, WIRE. Edition of 250.

Artist: BLUES CONTROL
Title: Puff
Format: CD
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
First album now on CD (vinyl is out of print)! "...the music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin. It germinates absolutely from the bowels of the Blues but erupts via a postmodern portal; there are gorgeous sheens of rust that fissure throughout, harmonicas smoke in the distance, guitars splatter, keyboards ooze white hot neo psychedelic lava, in the end, like the music emitted from Apollos lyre, it is a devastatingly wondrous experience. And as much as I hear the (non specific) PSF or Akiyama buzz, to me Blues Control seem beget from the prominent clang & snarl of Dead C, who was beget by This Heat, who was beget by Faust, from whose seed it all originated. And thats nothin to sneeze about, unless yous is allergic to greatness. A cd on Holy Mountain is next. Theys on tour right now too, so drop everything & go seeem! I know its early, but Puff seems a shoe-in for one of the years best." - Siltblog. "Puff is the work of two modern gris gris chefs, and the most righteously authentic stoner gumbo this side of Twin Infinitives or Jungle Rot. Glittery framed sunglasses and dopers remorse. The finest racket of 2007 so far." - james jackson toth/wooden wand. "Blues Controls distorted rumblings sound like Mountain or Cream songs emanating from a sunken submarine." -- New York Times. "Deep in the redundant junk DNA of the blues, between the reptilian throwbacks and vegetable remnants, lurks the mutation that gives life to Blues Control." -- Nick Southgate / The Wire. "Brute force monstrosity trudge in the cloudsmashing style of the mighty Blue Cheer...and impressionist, introspective space and electronic plant music on that subtle plane visited by Eric Satie and Popul Vuh." -- Arthur Magazine. "Celestial, watery progressive/psych stuns and beautiful puffs of minimal melody." -- Volcanic Tongue. "I saw Blues Control play a show a couple nights ago and it was totally weird and great. On top of being truly unique retro-futuristic heavy psychedelia (thats the part I expected), the visuals of their setup combined with the sonics to make me think of all kinds of unexpected things, like various beats & rhythms heard from passing cars.....cheap-keyboard entertainment in the neon-lit backs of inner-city restaurants...... all the details you might find inside a pawn shop or bodega.... what can I say, it is definitely some new kind of urban music." -- Larry Dolman / Blastitude. "The music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin. It germinates absolutely from the bowels of the Blues but erupts via a postmodern portal; there are gorgeous sheens of rust that fissure throughout, harmonicas smoke in the distance, guitars splatter, keyboards ooze white hot neo psychedelic lava, in the end, like the music emitted from Apollos lyre, it is a devastatingly wondrous experience." -- Roland Woodbe / Siltblog.

Artist: BOSETTI, ALESSANDRO/GIUSEPPE IELASI/RENATO RINALDI
Title: Oreledigneur
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Oreledigneur is a new project by Giuseppe Ielasi, Renato Rinaldi and Alessandro Bosetti, focused on improvisation using various sound sources, from home-built small electric devices to found or natural materials/objects. In this case, the pieces are taken from different, but always very informal, sessions recorded directly to Dat with a stereo condenser microphone. No editing or processing. Side 1 (2 pieces, 19min.) Ielasi/Rinaldi duo, recorded in Ritas kitchen, July 17th 1999. Contact microphones, little electric devices, modified cd players through tiny car speakers, small objects. Side 2 (4 pieces, 19 min.) The first piece is a Bosetti/Rinaldi duo, recorded near the Tagliamento river (open air), August 1999. A long metal pipe with a microphone inside, played with stones and wood. The remaining music was recorded by the trio in Alessandros kitchen, October 1999, with piano strings and household objects. In Friuli (in the north-east of Italy) Oreledigneur means "hares ears". This release is co-produced by Fringes (Italy) and Fusetron, and comes in an edition of 300 copies. Direct Metal Mastering, quality pressing, cardboard covers with printed handmade paper"-Fringes.

Title: Coyotes Call
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Way-above-average improv from Japan. Electric strings (guitars?), saxophones, electronics, and samples move with unexpected ease frommeditative passages to intense blow-outs to free scatter. Sax player Yoshinori Yanagawa plays with the same sort of depth and passion as Albert Ayler--no fakin, no academic rendering. But hes only part of a much larger whole. The wash of precision rumble and sound-tweaking that surrounds everything creates chaos from an intensely ordered technology. Strange (not "weird"), exciting music."-Eddie Flowers. "An intensely intriguing IIIrd album from this Japanese guitar/sax/electronics trio, ostensibly in four parts; parts 01. & 04. being short nursery soundscapes, the curtain rise & fall for the mammoth central volcanic continent which is itself shattered into a flies-eye multitude of alternately blasting, then conversational fragments. Yoshinori Yanagawas saxophones veer between Brotzmanesque screams and the deep bowel-rumble of a severe high-colonic impaction (especially when played at 33.3rpm - later, at 45, things resumed a more distinctly saxophonic tone). Electronics dominate most of the tectonic mood swinging going on; Toyohiro Okazaki (& guest sample wrangler Syohei Iwasaki) comes on like some demonic incarnation of Ron Grainers BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Fujio Kimuras "electric strings" are so convincingly grafted on to electronics wall that they together describe a single, enclosed chunk of improvised airspace, which houses the fluttering horn. Coyotes Call is at times an intense and demanding listen, exploring a kind of electronoise-jazz (sans drums) landmass only hitherto trod by hardy souls (Borbeto/Voice Crack collabs being the obvious precedent). Definitely worthy of much further investigation." -Tim Cornelius; Opprobrium. A few more copies of this mid-90s Fusetron release. Dislocation also had two CDs on PSF.

Title: Terra Incognita
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Fine free-rock garage-drone from New Zealanders Kim Pieters, Adria Morgan, and Sara Stephenson. Guitars feedback strum clang--drums pound freely--an occasional melody blossoms and quickly wilts--a few other sounds are employed. This music is noisy in its imprecision, but not really "noise." Its full of focused energy and grace, feels good, a nice play to visit."-Eddie Flowers. A few more copies of this mid-90s Fusetron release.

Title: Alternation
Format: Double LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Half-recorded in one blizzard, and completed by the next, Alternation is a years-in-the-making, tossed-off-in-a-moment exploration of the difference between EXCEPTER live on stage and EXCEPTER alone at home and the goal to eradicate the distinction between the two. Double the length and twice the depth of past EXCEPTER releases, Alternation is EXCEPTER looking both ways, a geometric expansion around all the territories marked so far in their brief discography: the primal death trips of Ka, the noise pop tropics of Vacation, the long drone goodnight of Throne, the cool electro doom of Self Destruction and the blasted steam cycle of Sunbomber." - Excepter. Double LP in heavy duty, full color gatefold jacket. Vinyl issue of the 5RC CD.

Title: Self Destruction
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
Players: John Fell Ryan: Vocals, Programming, Processing, Synth; Dan Hougland: Programming, Synth, Echo; Caitlin Cook: Vocals, Echo; Calder Martin: Vocals, Guitar, Percussion; Nathan Corbin: Synths. "Self Destruction" was recorded in the winter of 2004 and mixed, edited and reprocessed mostly in the winter of 2005. Self Destruction is the first Excepter record to be feature multi-track recording and overdubbing. Outside of Dan Houglands drum programming and a few vision directives from producer John Fell Ryan, the playing is entirely improvised by the group. Self Destruction is also the first Excepter record to prominently feature the polyphonic synthesizer playing of Nathan Corbin. The husband-wife duo of Caitlin Cook and Calder Martin make the final statement on the album as they take sole vocal duties on the last track, Your House. This recording has been edited short for maximum sonic impact on vinyl." - Recording Notes. "First off, Self Destruction is a house record. Perhaps more in spirit than in its realized form, but if that sounds like a joke, stop reading. New Yorks most amorphous five-necked entity (which includes Other Musics own Dan Hougland) have never been strangers to taking the longer, more undulating gravel road, as evidenced by the stretched out subterranean sermons on last years Ka album. On Self Destruction , Excepter crawl out of the cellar and into the warehouse. This is a house record. If Xenakis had made one. It is throbbing mental machine music that (much like the quintets live shows) appears to detour, but often climaxes with the religious fervor of a Wicker Man/Moodymann ritual. Definitely more Black Mahogani than Black Dice. Excepter just traveled all over New Weird America, and torched it in the process. Incendiary." - AK, Other Music.

Title: Vacation/"Forget Me"
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Even though it would be wrong not to consider these protest songs against the back porch policies of certain undisclosed and secure locations, we shouldn⿿t let THEM come between us. EXCEPTER says, "Yeah, well play" ... freestyle, the crawl, the butterfly, the breast, the rest. "How long will you stay?" Just as expressions and intuitions reflect the oceans unleashed, there is no desert island, dig, just the big, bare teeth of EXCEPTER there, smiling beneath. "You forgot something?" To survive the coming weather, you are going to need to know a sailor, a captain, an engineer, a figurehead, as well as a pirate, so SHOW ... A continuous stream of music split into two sides.  Performed and mixed live to stereo. SS EXCEPTER:"Were only a world away." - Excepter. "For the second time in a row now, one of Brooklyns grandest experimental entourages have presented us with a sonic totem whose jaunty and bright packaging belie an almost certain palpable sense of unease. This new twelve-inch is entitled "Vacation", and here Excepter have perhaps crafted a treatise on nothing less than the uncomfortable aspects of having to leave oneshome. Or they may well have been channeling the soundtrack to a particularly bizarre road trip I once went on involving an Indian burial ground, a cross eyed woman Xeroxing chain letters at a supermarket, and an extremely sadistic alligator farm outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas where I witnessed a stuffed Fiji Merman. Unease indeed. But of course, like on any worthy and good vacation, once youve become used to new unsettling sensations like foot blisters and sunburn you realize how sublime the landscape is. And sublimity is what Excepter trades in spades. Side-one positions the moment where you have trouble getting your bearings, trouble putting your surroundings into perspective. The rhythms are all displaced, their center of gravity slackened by synths squiggling all willy-nilly looking for something to latch onto. Side-two, "Forget Me," is where everything comes into focus -- like a photograph that you can spend some time with to chart your inner progress. This track could be Excepters pop moment, their breezy road trip down the Autobahn (and here the Kraut reference is especially apt). Pistons fired, these beats are allowed to lope carefree into the coming summers new season of discontent. Ex-ceptional." - Michael Klausman; Other Music.

Title: Gang Gang Dance
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
⿿Gang Gang Dance are a group composed of well-known entities (in and around NYC in particular) but have left a sporadic, almost shadowy, impression upon people nonetheless.  Various members play/have played in various other bands.  Theyll surface to play a clutch of shows, most all well-attended, only to disappear again (as regards to any kind of reliable congregation).  Oh, and theres also been no record to speak of, save a 100-copy CD, more or less fleetingly manifested for an art event with probably somewhere that amount of attendees. Anyways, now we have a document, albeit LP only, and thankfully definitely a good one. The opening female vocal ululations soon enough refract electronically, and the summoned whalesong dimension spires into an urgent metempsychotic groove.  Coming as they do from different angles, its safe to assume there is humanity to the postproduction approach on here.  Indeed the first side in its totality achieves a narrative facility which, when sized up against the nature of its parts, could remind one of a more quietly-alloyed Chrome. It does not end there, in fact there is something of a sense of unfinished business, and the second side strikes off with a snapping dream of desert suspense.  Machinic industry rises up here too though, marking yet another salient entre into the crafted spuriousness GGD seek to espouse.  An open drone fills for much of the half, accumulating a lyric denouement that possesses overtures toward melody and texture but less toward propulsive mien.    Again, and as always with this outfit, not so fast, especially in assuming the accumulation will not build anew, and fairly dramatically, before the end. And it is when it in fact does that sadly deceased member Nathan Maddox joins the fray most obviously, his vox working up the Can-like lather along with the suddenly more brash (especially after the subdued interlude) compatriots, everything spiking up to the sendoff digitized muezzin wail.⿝ - Dan Hougland; Other Music.

Artist: HURRAY
Title: Dreams, Not Soft Illusion
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Hurray is Zak Prekop, Josh Brand, Pete Mandradjieff & Rich Aldrich. They hail from the hidden sectors of New York City, and have released one 7" on the skul record label and recently presented their first art show at the Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery also of New York City. This is their first full length recording and is a must for fans of ambiguous, anomalous, and unobtrusive sound creation whose mystery is not invoked by hyperbole, pseudo-mythology or fake histories, but by giving full allowance to otherness and seeking beauty by allowing it to happen, which often means allowing it not to happen. Mishandled guitars, unknown electronics, amplified percussives and various layers of buzz coagulate and dissipate in measured restraint. I hesitate to use blighted terms like "lowercase" music, as Hurray shys not from some harsher territories and melodic (if emaciated and ghostly) material sometimes drifts into consciousness; two things I think of as contrasting w/ the more didactic, "European" music associated w/ said term. So, Ill avoid terminology and just say Im very glad to know this record." - Greg Kelley, 12/27/05.

Price: $12.00
"Swiss-German sound researchers with an interesting, very effective approach to turntable manipulation: Using six to eight record players simultaneously, they play only the run-out grooves or labels of the records, plus generate tones using rubber bands, adhesive tape, and tooth brushes to tweak the phono cartridges and repeating lock-grooved records. The resulting sounds range from ultraminimal blipsnhiss to solid grooves not too far from Krautrock- Eddie Flowers. "..(LP) from the German masters of a new genre: "runoff groove". That is, electronic music created from the snap-crackle- pop of old LP runoff grooves, tonearm feedback, et cetera. Minimal tones that slowly build into rhythmic order. Their previously self-released (and now long gone) 12" & 10" wowed me with a brilliant focus on the tiny "unwanted" byproducts of the vinyl medium. Synchronic with Pole, Porter Ricks, Oval, et al., but with an even more experimental feel than previously believed possible. A 100% necessary release" - Jace Krause (HotF/Lost In Translation). Found a few more copies of this 1999 release. Slight storage wear on the jackets. Highly recommended!

Artist: K-GROUP/OMIT
Title: Storage
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Not a split release by these two New Zealand artists, but a collaboration, carrying on from their 1997 single on Colorful Clouds for Acoustics. The weapons of choice are analogue synthesizers and the approach is slowly unfolding drones and drifting veils of sound that part and close across the listeners third ear like storms on the surface of Jupiter. K-Group is Paul Toohey, previously of noted NZ geological drone ensemble Surface of the Earth, who also has a solo album under this name on Corpus Hermeticum. Omit is Clinton Williams, who has also recorded for that notorious NZ un-easy listening label, as well as extensively on his own Deep Skin imprint. During 2000 and 2001, having failed to bring down the global economy with their now-forgotten Y2K scam [remember Y2K? - I thought not], this pair of Hidden Masters turned their efforts towards late-night kitchen jam sessions during their holiday moments. In these each would fire up an antiquated analogue synth and the resulting aural collisions would be recorded on a handy hard drive, then tweaked, inverted, eqd and edited to produce the immaculate slabs of sound contained within the tiny grooves of this ludicrously out-dated analogue sound-reproducing format. These seven tracks simulate the calm of the newly sedated patient about to undergo a surgical procedure, just as he or she is starting to slip into unconsciousness. You can listen, but just when you think youre hearing something, you realise that 12 hours have gone by and you have a new and inexplicable scar on some unlikely part of your anatomy. Too late you realise that the sound you can hear at the very edge of audition is not this recording, but the sound of forty metal robotic insects starting to eat their way out through your still-sedated navel. Waking with a start in time to flip the album over on your turntable, you notice that subsonic frequencies have begun to rearrange the contents of your mantlepiece into a veritable Morris Dance of inanimate objects, when you thought the audio had not yet begun to play back. A vestigial bass throb starts up in the back of your cranium, as very slow-moving if not actually stationary spacecraft begin to land in the garden. Three days later they are still hovering as the seventh and final track of thr album begins to play, and infinitesimally subtle stereo effects start panning in impossible permutations audible only between your shoulder blades. Apparent suspension of time, delirious interludes, interference with the basic laws of physics, all of these effects are possible results of listening to the beautifully poised, finely polished and unutterably beautiful sounds contained in this simultaneously forbidding and inviting artifact. If, like me, these are all the things you look for in a sound recording, then look no further. If its merely music you require, then I suggest you meddle not in the affairs of your betters and proceed directly to the nearest chain CD store and stock up big time." -Bruce Russell [Noise Legend], Lyttelton, NZ, May 2002.

"Heres a piece of wax that came out back in 2002, and its a title that we thought was long discontinued by Fusetron. But, luckily, somehow, a handful of copies still exist, and if youre keen on the stun-drone / brain-zonk electronics currently blasted by the EMERALDS axis, you NEED to investigate everything that Omit has ever released. Our words from way back when... Both K-Group and Omit have been longtime aQuarius favorites from the New Zealand experimental noise scene; but unfortunately, theyve been pretty quiet in their respective outputs during the past couple of years. K-Group is the solo project for Paul Toohey, who has also worked in the (defunct?) Surface Of The Earth, both of which centered around low-frequency tectonic drones coaxed from abused amplifiers. Clinton Williams has taken up the Omit moniker for his creepy, tape loop compositions loaded with bleak sci-fi / psychotic imagery. This collaboration between Williams and Toohey is actually their second, if you count a 7" which came out ages ago. In running Williams battery of analog synths through Tooheys cabinets, theyve constructed an eerie album of deep rumblings that are on par with anything that Coleclough, Koner, or Troum have managed to release. As the K-Group / Omit drones ripple with a gritty amplifier buzz often lacking in the driftwork of those aforementioned artists, "Storage" pulses with a subterranean heaviness, pushing this closer towards the Earth / SUNNO))) terrain. A really wonderful album!!!" - Aquarius.

When you say to it: "In truth thou art Ashmadai," it will give you a wonderful ring. It will teach you geometry, arithmetic, astronomy and mechanics. When questioned, it answers truthfully.

"Fiery phoenix, four horsemen, or just plain ferocious, Sightings is back with another free rock H-Bomb. Comprised primarily of improvisations and recorded for the price of cassette tape, they leave no doubt western civilization is coming to an end....But seriously folks, this CD is companion to a vinyl release on the EN/OF label. EN/OF is a series of releases from the Bottrop-Boy record label. Every release contains a 12" record & an art edition and is limited to 100 copies. Sightings is paired with the German painter Daniel Richter who contributed an exclusive piece, "Das Schönste Ist Geschichte", an offset print,30x90 cm, with hand-painted elements. The LP features three tracks from "End Times" as well as another exclusive track. Richter was kind enough to lend artwork for the CD as well. "End Times" is 56 minutes of head-rinsing to take the millennarian fever to the next level."

Title: Up The Middle Down The Sides
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"After some twenty years in the wilderness when Storm Bugs were known only to a handful of aficionados, the DIY electronic duo were rediscovered in 2000 when they were included on the deliciously dodgy but possibly seminal bootleg LP I Hate the Pop Group. A CD of the Bugs finer moments followed shortly after on the reactivated Snatch Tapes label and prompted one receiver to comment "How could such sounds, radically challenging the accepted texture of electronic music, have been recorded over 20 years ago?" Another review suggested that.. "they were spiritual forefathers to Oval and todays Clicks & Cuts generation". Since 2001 Storm Bugs have featured on stations such as Resonance FM and WFMU and there have been more archive recordings by Philip Sanderson (one half of the duo) reissued by labels such as Anomalous and Die Stadt including collaborations with Organum main man David Jackman. There was even an EP of new material The Bugs are Back put out by Klanggalerie in 2002. Many have thought that there must be more vintage Storm Bugs recordings in the attic and after a 2 year period of intense rummaging and restoration Fusetron are pleased to present a further installment of Storm Bugs material from 1978-82 entitled Up the Middle Down the Sides. The LP delves deep into the Snatch Tapes sound banks to produced two continuous collaged sides of often-spontaneous sonic experimentation. Tracks such as Skid Pan Buoy and Thin Line Flash of Traffic use the classic Bugs DIY instrumentation of rewired radios, scratched vinyl and disemboweled guitars (Storm Bugs were circuit bending before the term was invented). Other pieces such as Little Bob Minor exploit the sonic capabilities of that most eccentric of British synthesizers the VCS3. But this is not simply a barrage of industrial mayhem for spliced into the fabric of controlled excess are moments of contemplative soundscapes such as 111 and Waspbottle, the latter scored for a duet of milk bottle and wasp synthesiser. In short Up the Middle Down the Sides is possibly the first (and last) DIY electronic concept LP." - Storm Bugs. The Storm Bugs are Philip Sanderson and Steven Ball (with special guest David Jackman of Organum on the track In The Naked Girls Majesty).

Title: Wolf Eyes & Black Dice
Format: LP

Price: $12.00
"The first young shorty that ever made my preteen heart sweat at night was Brandy Salem. So fine. The stage was set for some serious 8-year-old dating action but I got snaked by this lame dude named Shawn Murphy who won Brandys eye by shuffling baseball cards faster & being a little crazier on his four-wheel green machine. It killed me ... all summer I tried to get faster on the cards & upstage everyone on the street big wheel scene, but alas, no Salem. She moved to Iowa, still think of her when that "Im in love with the sea" song comes on. Fucking Shawn.... Fast forward 21 years ... in the game of pure electronic hard-core insanity, Wolf Eyes hear rumors of this RI band of PCP chair-throwing HC yahoos who hold the crown on violence & sonic terror. Fuck that. We thought we were the end of the well in electronic napalm. This Black Dice band wanted to play in Detroit ... no one will do it. Fear of violence/death threats/general horror left them with no gig. "Why would I wanna book a band who is gonna beat up my friends?" was the local consensus. So BD get a Monday gig at Club Olson/my basement in quiet Ferndale, home to a handful of whacked out electronic misfit gigs. Neighbors of the crib being left side= young couple / right side = quiet lesbian couple with child. My cell rings nonstop days before the gig with crazed young HC fiends asking if the gig is true. I start to get nervous, then I hear they need like 30,000 watts for their gig. What the? Gig day/come home from my office job & the Dice dudes are waiting for me. These are the horrible terror junkies who stab people when they play? All I see is smiles, loafers, Bjorn playing with a kid, and starry-eyed-vacant-brain Danny. Weird. Then they load in; mounds of amplifiers, mounds. The whole basement looking like Iron Maiden was gonna play. Wolf Eyes jams, we think it is intense, whatever. Then they play ... starting with solo recorder and then / WHOA /the most violent, insane, Hiroshima tidal roar of basement sonic terror EVER. EVER. We never heard or witnessed anything so massive. We have seen the Merzbows, the Skin Crimes, the Gravitars, Youth In Asia, whatever.. This was in a totally different sound universe where the air is filled with concrete. It was louder in the street than it was in the basement black hole of sound. Imagine Black Dice playing in your fucking basement on a Monday night! Jesus. No neighbor complaints. Changed our view on sound/terror/attack. This was our challenge; meet this Dice volume unholiness on the same sonic field before Shawn Murphy & his Outlaw band does it better. Dudes were so cool two of them even slept in the basement. Awesome. So we became best friends. Nate called me at work the next morning & said "we are gonna do a record together" I laughed ... that would rule... So fast forward another two years. Here is it is. Recorded at a subterranean Chinatown studio in two days. Tons of jacked EQ, no space, cases of brew, clouds of smoke, Guinness record for most times "Dude" was said. We met on equal ground here. Total respect/the record really sounds like the shadow of each band. It was a blast. Play it on 16 rpm in a closet and jam along with the bones of an enemy. Me, it would be playing the remains of that rat fucker Shawn Murphy, dude couldnt shake shit at this horrible eerie black pond sound." - John Olson, Wolf Eyes, October 2003. Different recordings than the American Tapes CDRs. Recorded Oct 2001.

Title: 171 Used Train Tickets
Format: 10"
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The Old Angel, Nottingham, 1990. It was the A-Bands third live show and we were calling ourselves Advent for the evening in honour of a local record shop who - judging by their filing system - thought they were stocking an album entitled Richard Youngs by Advent rather than Advent by Richard Youngs. For reasons that escape me now, Id hoarded 171 used train tickets. It felt like a cool idea to read them out. So I did. Not in the privacy of my own home, but to an audience. They seemed to enjoy it. As soon as Id finished, the A-Band struck up and a good time was had by all." - Richard Youngs. Artwork by Madeleine Hynes. Limited edition of 330 Copies. One Side 10" w/ Laser-Etched B-Side.

Title: Mauve Dawn
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"For the past eight years Andrew Paine and Richard Youngs have met on almost every Sunday and recorded music. Mauve Dawn is the result of ten meetings during 2004. Its nine tracks feature processed epinette des vosges, glockenspiel, vintage keyboards and guitars alongside granularly synthesised household objects hacked together with resonated voices and filtered bells in a stereo field heavy on ring modulation. One part of the Mauve trilogy, this is an instrumental album of classic length." - Richard Youngs & Andrew Paine.
