Artist: ILL WIND ENSEMBLE
Title: Nobody Goes that Way
Format: CDR
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Kevin Moreau, Charlie Schneeweis and John Levin started the Ill Wind Ensemble in 1993. The original band had a shifting line up that included many of the wayward musicians that hung out at McNeils here in Brattleboro VT. By 1994 they had settled down to a quartet, with percussionist Eric Boyer, that would perform together for another seven years. This recording from 1995 documents that quartet as they began to hone their free improvisations into a collective musical language. Using instruments from western, world, and home-made traditions, as well as toys and other found objects, and guided by a shared passion for droning modes, the unpredictable tunings of folk winds and reeds, and careful listening, the group, as Kevin liked to put it, "peeled the paint off the walls" of his Wilder Building studio with sounds like the ones captured on this CD. Originally produced in home-duplicated cassette format and sold only at concerts in a proto-internet and pre-downloadable world, this Spirit of Orr release captures a lost moment in time. Limited to 100 hand assembled copies." - Spirit Of Orr.

Artist: KING TUFF
Title: Mindblow
Format: CDR
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Before there was a FEATHERS, or a WITCH, Kyle would play around town with various friends, and most times just at home in his basement room behind a hole in a wall. He would also draw pictures, lots of pictures. The MINDBLOW record was first laid on us early in 2003, and it was a monster collection of original power pop recorded for maximum love. At the time though, there were pictures to be drawn.. .and he laid the covers for a few record covers on us, and also completed a book of his art and exhibited it with the amazing LITTLE CAKES GALLERY in NYC, as well as here in his hometown. Then the FEATHERS project started to take root, and this record somehow got lost in all of the shuffle. Now here it is, MINDBLOW, as a limited to 100 CDr, a way to get it to some folks, and also to warn people of the upcoming KING TUFF TOUR this fall. The fun has just begun." - Spirit of Orr.

Artist: RUBBY BOYS
Title: Rubby Boys
Format: CDR
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
�??There is a carelessly guarded story regarding the freaked out underground of the Boston, Massachusetts environs. It goes back years and years. In this story you can plug a spout into almost any line and fine some of the dankiest damaged psychedelic forms imaginable. On the vinyl only imprint records we have tried to shed some light on just a few instances of this story (Subskin Cables, El-Ron, Shrin, Deluxx). Mainly focussed on the 1988 - 1993 area, this project saw its greatest exposure coming from Sunburned Hand of the Man�??s debut LP Headdress (out of print). The Rubby Boys were a band that in 1991 (or thereabouts) operated (and lived) in the very same loft-space handed down to SUNBURNED that you may have read about in many recent articles on the band. More than a location, it is a place that is as much a member of the band as anyone involved. The Rubby Boys were current NY State resident Phil Franklin (Sunburned, Franklin�??s Mint, Caroliner, Faxed Head - many others) and Greg Petrovado (currently of Feathers... but also slept around through the years). This surfaced collection of acid drenched home four track recordings displays a heads up to noise New Zealand, as much as a call to 70s Texas lo-fi psych channeled through two mid-20s minds who would go on to influence many independent sounds to come. Limited to 100 copies.�?� - Spirit Of Orr.

Artist: RUSSELL, BRUCE
Title: Gilded Splinters
Format: CD
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"After countless false starts and production problems, we are finally able to offer a specially packaged edition of this long awaited release by BRUCE RUSSELL. Hand assembled digipak version of this CD (not a CDR).Iin the coming months it will be issued in a jewel cased edition. About the Project: I have been interested in the use of sound recordings to make music for a long time. In the early 1980s one of the things that drew me to the work of groups such as Cabaret Voltaire, The Fall and This Heat was their use of recordings as an element in their work, and as a way of restructuring played pieces once they had been recorded. In my own work, I started making tape works from day one, buying my first open reel tape machine in 1983, the same year I bought my first electric guitar. The first Dead C. album included The Wheel and Mutterline, both of which I constructed from tapes [1987]. Later about half of the third Handful of Dust album; From a Soundtrack to the Anabase of St.John Perse, was constructed in the studio [1995]. When I began to record under my own name, one of the things I wanted to focus on was tape work, as opposed to documentation recordings of live improvisations, which most of my other work has been. My first solo single was produced by the simple expedient of halving the tape speed, thereby doubling the beauty of the original ultra-lo-fi recording. A great boost to my resolve in this area was given by Ralf Wehowskys invitation in 1996 to participate in what became the Tulpas project. His faith in me gave me confidence to consider my work as a form of composition, and has led directly to this album. In this regard the support of Matthew Leonard has also been very helpful. My plan was to compile examples of my tape work over the last few years, as a way of showing the different approaches and developing methodologies that I have employed. Originally I envisaged a double CD, but this has proven to be both too expensive and ultimately too hubristic. Making these recordings has been a learning process, but a very satisfying one. My working practices have often been deliberately primitive and brutal, and I make no apology for that. It is the ideas and their expression that should be of interest, not merely questions of technique. It remains only to note the inspiring example of many more illustrious names in this genuinely Twentieth Century art form. I will not compile a list of names, as these lists have a way of becoming almost too famous, but national pride compels me to mention the late Douglas Lilburn. He founded, in 1966 at Victoria University of Wellington, the Southern Hemispheres first Electronic Music Studio. Recently his magnificent analogue electronic works have entered the digital domain in a long overdue re-edition. Hurrah!" - Bruce Russell, Lyttelton 2004.

Artist: SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN
Title: Rare Wood
Format: CD
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"An expected gift is not worth giving. After several false starts, the wood is ready. With this stroke the Sunburned Hand Of The Man unleash their singular collective spirit into the common marketplace to provide an open door to those who have heard about, but not yet heard, the magic mayhem that is the music. The music on Rare Wood was recorded in the most lively of settings, and then brought together in this composite, and finally encased in a printed rendering of handcrafted woodwork by Phil Franklin, the Rare Wood is a hyperdriven, claustrophobic ride on a swaying line. A smattering of recordings that will separate the talkers from the walkers. Sunburned Hand Of The Man again brings you something you didnt expect, Rare Wood." - Spirit Of Orr.

Artist: TEMPLE OF BON MATIN
Title: Infidel
Format: CD
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Ed Wilcox is constantly refining his art, his message. As a painter, he describes what you will find in his work with, my love of circus, the unrepentant whim of the Cobra Group, the recycled resurrections of Eduardo Paolozzi, and most important to me, Persian and Mongul miniatures. Ed Wilcox approaches his musical efforts with the same level of thoughtfulness and joy in exploration. A self-declared Space Metal band, there is much influence of Sun Ra (Philadelphia for crissakes!) as there is Judas Priest. Together with a crop of accomplished and loyal fellow travelers, the Temple Of Bon Matin has ventured in and out of sight, but has continually remained true to Eds single vision of pushing clattering jazz through the heaviness of hard rock. The result is always explosive and primal, always Bon Matin. Infidel , Temples sixth full length, is the record made when the pedal hits the metal. A full on blow out featuring Eds powerful shouts and revving drum attack, amidst psychedelic-punk guitar blasts and blaring horns." - Spirit Of Orr.

Artist: TEMPLE OF BON MATIN
Title: Monkeys Straw Raincoat
Format: CDR
Label: Spirit Of Orr
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"How can it be that every time we turn around, ED WILCOX, and his TEMPLE OF BON MATIN have squeezed out a new record, and each record takes us (by that I mean the world) closer to the nexus. Okay, this record is simply the most psychedelically mannered BON MATIN yet, and it is also the most soulful, and the most vocal, and most pre-cussive, and most acoustic. MONKEYS STRAW RAINCOAT takes the direction of the CABIN IN THE SKY release and turns it back into itself, it propels like BULLET INTO MESMERS BRAIN, but it is a space capsule without any fuselage. What the hell am I talking about? Limited to 300 hand assembled copies." - Spirit of Orr.
