Artist: ASH RA TEMPEL EXPERIENCE
Title: Live In Melbourne
Format: LP
Label: MG.Art
Country: Germany
Price: $28.00
Gatefold sleeve; Includes printed inner sleeve. "2015 live recording from the Supersense Festival in Melbourne, previously unreleased, featuring a supergroup of Manuel Göttsching, Ariel Pink, Oren Ambarchi, and Shags Chamberlain playing material from classic Ash Ra Tempel releases, 1972s Schwingungen (MGART 112CD) and 1973s Seven Up (MGART 113CD). Taken from Göttsching on the release: "Out of the blue -- I was invited to perform in Melbourne, Australia. It happened thanks to my dear old friend Mick Glossop, who made the suggestion to Sophia Brous, at the time the curator of a music-festival called Supersense at the Melbourne Arts Centre in summer 2015. In addition to the solo performance Id planned, Sophia proposed an additional collaboration or session performances with some of the other participating musicians. I had never been very happy in performing public sessions. Ive always tried to first look for a conceptual approach, and my wife, Ilona J. Ziok, came up with the idea of performing some Ash Ra Tempel classics. Thats when the idea for an Experience was born. I decided that pieces from the second and third Ash Ra Tempel albums Schwingungen and Seven Up would be most appropriate for a group performance with Ariel Pink, Shags Chamberlain, and Oren Ambarchi. We conversed by email, and much to my surprise, they all claimed to be very familiar with this music. . . . We finally met in Melbourne for a relaxed afternoon rehearsal, just two days before the actual concert performance took place. After a technical set-up we went straight into Look At Your Sun and it was as if we had performed it only yesterday. It continued like that with the other tracks. For the first part of Schwingungen I decided for a little variation, so that all four of us were standing around the vibraphone at the beginning, playing it with four/eight hands -- like an imaginary Music for Four Musicians (a bit reminiscent of the early works of Steve Reich). . . . In return, it was only natural to ask Mick Glossop to make a mix of our concert recording, and quite happily he agreed. He has put together a wonderful and subtle mix, perfectly representing the atmosphere of the concert." Includes liner notes by Mick Glossop and Manuel Göttsching and photographs of the rehearsal and live performance." - MG.Art.

Title: Correlations Complete
Format: 5 CD Box
Label: MG.Art
Country: Germany
Price: $71.00
"Limited one-time collectors edition released in 2008 and previously only available from MG.ARTs mailorder. The first disc is a remastered version of the 1990 Virgin CD reissue of Correlations, recorded and mixed at Panne-Paulsen Studio, Frankfurt, in 1978 by Mick Glossop and originally released by Virgin in 1979. The second disc is the first release of Phantasus, Manuel Göttsching and Udo Arndts original 1978 recording and mix of the album that was partially re-recorded and totally remixed to become Correlations (Phantasus was Göttschings intended title, which he changed to Correlations after UK fans told him that the English cant pronounce "phantasus"). The third, fourth, and fifth discs are The Making Of, which includes a 12-page booklet. Performed by Manuel Göttsching (guitar, synthesizer, sequencer), Lutz Ulbrich (guitar, synthesizer, piano, mellotron), and Harald Großkopf (drums, percussion, synthesizer)." - MG.Art.

Artist: GOTTSCHING, MANUEL
Title: E2-E4 (35th Anniversary Edition)
Format: LP
Label: MG.Art
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
Re-pressed. 180-gram LP version with embossed chessboard artwork print and printed inner sleeve. In celebration of the 2016 35th anniversary of the December 12, 1981, recording of Manuel Göttschings legendary E2-E4, one of electronic musics most influential recordings, Göttschings MG.ART label presents an official reissue, carefully overseen by the master himself. Includes liner notes by Manuel Göttsching, archival photos, and an excerpt of David Elliotts review in Sounds from June 16, 1984.

"As the story is sometimes told, Göttsching stopped in the studio for a couple of hours in 1981 and invented techno. E2-E4 is the most compelling argument that techno came from Germany-- more so than any single Kraftwerk album, anyway. The sleeve credits the former Ash Ra Tempel leader with “guitar and electronics”, but few could stretch that meager toolkit like Göttsching. Over a heavenly two-chord synth vamp and simple sequenced drum and bass, Göttschings played his guitar like a percussion instrument, creating music that defines the word “hypnotic” over the sixty minutes . . . A key piece in the electronic music puzzle thats been name-checked, reworked and expanded upon countless times." --Mark Richardson, Pitchfork.
