Artist: BRIGMAN, GEORGE
Title: Jungle Rot
Format: LP
Label: Obscure Oxide
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Underground 1975 proto-punk/blues legend, ultra-faithfully reissued for everyone again. Lifelong Baltimore resident George Brigmans debut LP was quite an achievement for a teenager: self-financed and mostly self-recorded, influenced by UK blues-rockers The Groundhogs but filtered through a US inner-city outlook (and budget). Unfortunately, none of this mattered, as the record had botched distribution and so remained more heard about than actually heard, save for a few scattershot pirate represses. 30 years after the original LP release, legitimate reissues were made available on other labels, all of which are now out of print. Obscure Oxide is proud to announce this new LP edition, utilizing the same John Golden transfers, from the original masters, as used for the previous Anopheles LP reissue (why re-invent the wheel?), plus a full-color insert with freshened-up liners and all five (!) snapshots from the original sessions. Black vinyl with repros of original labels and sleeve." -Obscure Oxide.

Artist: SNAKEGRINDER
Title: ...And The Shredded Fieldmice
Format: CD
Label: Obscure Oxide
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Every burg in the 70s that had a steady supply of weed and electricity undoubtedly provided a birthing ground for the formation of bands influenced by the likes of Jerry Garcia and Lowell George, and the Delaware area was no different. What was different was that our subjects-at-hand got it together and in 1977 released an unassuming document for posterity, containing nothing but original, winding (dare we say snake-like?) compositions and good vibes throughout. Since then, the album has garnered accolades from the Acid Archives crowd and so we felt the time was right to give the groups efforts a proper (and properly licensed from the band) presentation, with an old-style heavy mini-LP sleeve and thick booklet containing pics, gig posters, song lyrics and liner notes by producer and long-time fan, Gregor Alligator. In addition, weve added a half-hour of unreleased live tracks from the same era, and everything you hear (album and bonus) was transferred from the mastertapes ...with love and anarchy!" - Obscure Oxide.

Artist: TARGAL, JEM
Title: Luckey Guy
Format: CD
Label: Obscure Oxide
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"A Turkish Leprechaun by birth, with a childhood fully immersed in music and art, Jem Targal first made his mark as vocalist/bassist/main songwriter for Detroit power-trio legends THIRD POWER (their lone Vanguard album from 1969 still rightfully well-regarded today).  After the band split in 1972, a despondent Jem took up home recording, laying down hours of tape on a Teac 4-track machine. Jem selected the best cuts from these solo sessions in 1978 and released �??Luckey Guy�?��??pasting the gatefold covers and handling all sales himself in true DIY fashion. The album never stays still with one style for too long, but rather drifts along with spaced-out guitar (Bumble Bee Drive), tortured, dissonant piano (Ring Out The Bells), culminating in a sparse, apocalyptic tale (The Bomb Tune), with bits of childlike whimsy and Jems eerie harmonies woven throughout, not to mention a few musical touches that indicate its mid-1970s vintage. Were we to shamelessly namedrop, we might mention Syd Barrett, Skip Spence, Brian Wilson and Gary Wilson as starting points... But were above that, for its the first ever appearance on compact disc of this odd and eclectic bit of loner folk/psych. The label tracked down the master-tapes, miraculously still in storage at the original pressing plant, and created a mini-LP sleeve replica of the original album jacket, that includes an insert booklet with liner notes and newly-transcribed lyrics handwritten by Jem himself. Audio digitally transferred, with no added compression or equalisation, from the 1/4" analogue two-track master reels.�?� - Obscure Oxide.
