Artist: VITAMIN B12
Title: Cant Be Bothered To Play
Format: 10"
Label: Little Gems
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"improvising as a quartet, The Vitamin B12 rapidly loosen themselves from any notion of music making and indulge in a kind of joyful blundering around. Its like when we stop bothering to play the noise just plays itself. I think it probably plays itself better than we do. The quartet consists of Kulo Murugaiyan, Hassni Malik, Stephen Drennan and myself." - Alasdair Willis. Editon of 99.

Artist: VITAMIN B12
Title: Kikis Island
Format: 10"
Label: Little Gems
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"The words and world of Eden Ahbez are eschewed by Karin Moris faithful but thoroughly unique recital which subtly questions the exotic fantasies that swirl in Edens pacific island idyll. Karin was born and grew up in Hawaii. Side two, devoted to the words and voice of Xelis de Toro, dismantled and reassembled. The uncertainty of understanding what is spoken, the sounds, the words and the elusive essence of meaning"- Alasdair Willis. Edition of 99.

Artist: VITAMIN B12
Title: Laleh Ladan
Format: Double LP
Label: Little Gems
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Perhaps the only double album to be released that contains two sides instead of four. A big enough surprise three years ago when after a ten year gap to follow up the legendary and now unavailable 4LP box debut we actually got the follow up of 2LP Gatefold Set, and then with incredible speed came a seven inch on Raft Recordings, just when you might be shocked into thinking the B12 was threatening to become prolific (a double 10" has been slated for release by Italian label Elica for a couple of years also) the theory is confirmed by this new double album which almost literally turned up out of the blue with no warning or pre-information. A record of two halves, in two versions...the insert gives you track details and input information for Sides One and Two, and indeed there are two versions of this album. The same tracks, but completely reworked. For once this ploy doesnt seem lazy or an unneeded addition, its all part of the process. The music itself is a real breath of fresh air, taking (mainly) saxophone, organ, drums, violin, voice and unidentifiable noises into the sample realm and playing havoc with the integrity of those precious recordings. not a jazz or an improv record, nor electronic or concrete, but they all play their part in the B12s unknown plans. A genuine experimental album from a genuinely independent artist, not following any particular genre or approach. A self-produced item on the B12s Little Gems label, Limited to 300 copies in totality... comes with full colour gatefold and small plastic folder of picture cards." - Little Gems.

Artist: VITAMIN B12
Title: Love Is Strange
Format: 10"
Label: Little Gems
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"A spluttering Casio SK-5 jostles with corroding saxophone spittle, a cheap plastic melodica vainly duets with a dysfunctional Stratocaster, old pop hits loop and dance around the chirps of an Roland MC-202. Xelis de Toro, Stephen Drennan, Monty Oxymoron, Kulo Murugaiyan, Hassni Malik, David Harkins and myself venture off on another B12 escapade." - Alasdair Willis. Editon of 99.

Title: DK720VB12
Format: 10"
Label: Little Gems
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"DK720 and The Vitamin B12 pool their resources, sending tapes and CDRs back and forth, mixing and re-mixing each others work. This has gone on for several years. I guess should mention that Albert Oehlen, Nomex, Karin Mori, Stephen Drennan and Frantisek Sic all make appearances at various points on this record, though Im not quite sure where." - Alasdair Willis. Edition of 99.
