Title: Junge Fever
Format: CD
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Foust! is my first ever solo project in all these long years. Through most of these years, since The XX Committee days, a constant supporter and champion of my work has been the journalist Oskar Spee. I think his email sums up Jungle Fever quite well. Dear Scott, I received Jungle Fever yesterday. Many thanks. I first played it while I was cooking dinner and found it very odd and perplexing. Later, I sat down in a more relaxed set and setting and gave the recording my full attention at good volume. Astounding! Simply one of the most hallucinogenic recordings I have ever heard. All three acts have a monotony to them, but the shifting patterns under the surface are superb. I can certainly see this as a drama involving a late 19th century British explorer contracting a tropical disease. The drama is palpable. The three acts, if I may call them that, Train Journey/ Restless Natives, Delirium, and Demise are perfect. Really fine work. The strange and obsessive attention to detail of Jungle Fever really reminds me of your film. Another stone in your mighty edifice. My (our) mission continues. We should get together soon. We have much to discuss. Heres To Love! Oskar" Digipak. Edition of 300." - Swill Radio.

Title: Heres To Love!
Format: DVD
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"a film by scott foust. starring: matt krefting, meara oreilly, jessi swenson, with scott foust, graham lambkin. music by idea fire company, tart, the pickle factory, xx committee, y front. heres to love! is reminiscent of the past glory of silent film, when the beauty of the image predominated, yet it looks firmly to the future. it is the story of a quest by three young people to find their aesthetic idol and save him from his degraded state, told through slowly unfolding scenes with striking, lingering, and sometimes aethestically challenging videography. these images are closely matched with original music by foust and his various sound projects from throughout his career. a film to be watched with thought and a patience not usually demanded by todays methods of hyperactive, cartoonish editing, heres to love! should be viewed as a series of extended moving paintings, accompanied by truly timeless music." - Swill Radio

Artist: IDEA FIRE COMPANY
Title: Anti-Natural
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Idealized field recordings that capture the hallucinatory isolation of an abandoned arctic base. Anti-Natural combines organic mechanistic processes into an aesthetic whole. Both severe and opulent, naïve and self-confident, Anti-Natural offers an escape route from the false dichotomies of man/nature and man/machine and attempts the transcendence of the impossible. Electronic recreations of the world around us, both real and imagined, foment immutable revolutions in sound." - Swill Radio.

Artist: IDEA FIRE COMPANY
Title: Explosion in a Shingle Factory
Format: Double LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Mid 90s release from Scott Foust and crew. "Our debut. Karla and I developed the IFCO style of using collaged improvisations. In this sense, our music is both improvised and composed. Lots of synths, field recordings, and whatnot." - Scott Foust.

Artist: IDEA FIRE COMPANY
Title: Island of Taste, The
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"IFCO follows up our highly ignored Stranded LP with an equally, if not more so, strong statement. Core members Karla Borecky and Scott Foust are joined by an all-star cast: Meara OReilly and Jessi Leigh Swenson from Stranded, as well as Frans de Waard, Graham Lambkin, and Dr. Timothy Shortell. The Island Of Taste depicts a manoeuvre in which the beauty becomes more beautiful as the desperation becomes more desperate. A stark and romantic mission to the rocks. Lavish package featuring an excellent Karla cover painting as well as a booklet presented as a set of 5 x 7 art cards with another Karla painting, band photos, and an essay of mine. Perhaps The Island Of Taste is the first LP to make explicit a certain nostalgia for itself. Along with The Shadow Rings Swill Radio trilogy (Lighthouse, Lindus, Im Some Songs), Id put IFCOs trilogy (Anti-Natural, Stranded, The Island Of Taste) up against anyones three LP run."-Swill Radio.

Title: Postcards
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"2013 marks both the 25th anniversary of IFCO and the 30th anniversary of Swill Radio, so what better way to start the celebrations than with a brand new IFCO LP? Postcards is a reworking of a cassette originally released by No Basement Is Deep Enough in 2011. Re-ordered, remixed, remade, and remodeled Postcards presents a more charming atmosphere than Music From The Impossible Salons (Kye) stark melancholy. There is still plenty of piano and sad scenarios, but there are also flights of electronic fancy. Eight imaginary impressionistic portraits of cities we have never been to. Karla Borecky and Scott Foust. Deluxe edition. 220 g vinyl. Cover painting and artwork by Karla; booklet with highly subjective text by me. Postcards from a past that never existed. IFCO march on and on." - Swill Radio.

Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Borecky, Scott Foust, Meara OReilly, Jessi Swenson. Completely different material from the cassette of the same name. This DVDR contains the entire legendary Schoolhouse show as well as a bonus Cycle 19 from the Gladtree Festival." - Swill Radio.

Artist: IDEA FIRE COMPANY
Title: Stranded
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"First proper release for IFCO since 1997s vastly underrated Anti-Natural LP. Since 2002 IFCO has been performing and recording as a quartet with Jessi Leigh Swenson and Meara OReilly added to core members Scott Foust and Karla Borecky. Stranded is a claustrophobic, sensuous optical illusion. Beautiful. Sad. Epic. Stranded." - Swill Radio.

Title: Vital: Live In Europe
Format: CD
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"In March 2006, IFCO made their first appearances in Europe. Core members Karla Borecky and Scott Foust linked up with Frans de Waard and hit selected hot spots in The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. Adding de Waard (Beequeen, Shifts, Kapotte Muziek, Freiband, etc) was a brave gamble that paid off handsomely. Armed with only a tiny digital keyboard (Borecky), a radio/cassette boombox and small echo unit (Foust), and a sawed off MS 20 (de Waard), the trio captivated audiences large and small. On these selected recordings, IFCO exhibit a virile murkiness, an almost desperate muscularity. Warnings from a dwindling outpost. Five tracks, 52 minutes. Includes two versions of the haunting Pleasure Cruise. Digipak edition of 300."- Swill Radio.

Country: USA
Price: $9.00

Artist: MIDDLETON, IAN
Title: Aural Spaces
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Ive been in touch with Ian Middleton for over 13 years now, lured into contact by a Remora lathe-cut LP, I believe, which sounded similar in intent to IFCO material that Karla and I were working on at the time. Ian was a somewhat prolific figure of the 90s UK underground scene, both with his music and his visual art. There was an LP for Swill Radio in the can, which ended up on Eclipse as there wasnt any money here to release it. Ians music has always had both organic and artificial elements combined with the vague melancholy of distant beauty. With Aural Spaces, Ian has refined and distilled his processes into a gorgeous electronic diamond. To quote my good friend Oskar Spee, Aural Spaces is an exotic, scientific, and beautiful perfume that slows down time and allows one to live, however briefly, in a better possible world. I couldnt agree more. There is not a wasted moment. Ian has kept a low profile the last few years, preferring to concentrate on his work and make it better, an approach of which I heartily approve. The sequencing of this LP is immaculate, a skill that is becoming a lost art in this shuffle-play world. Aural Spaces is totally removed from the confines of todays backwards looking fads and instead points its bow directly towards the future. Fighting the good fight." - Swill Radio.

Artist: PICKLE FACTORY
Title: Our Pledge
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The Pickle Factory is Karla Borecky and Scott Foust from IFCO plus long-time collaborator Mike Popovich. The sound is somewhat similar to the Idea Fire Company, although within at least sort of a song structure. Many think this is our finest work yet. The LP comes with a photograph on the cover and a booklet. Edition of 500." - Swill Radio.
SOLD OUT

Artist: PICKLE FACTORY
Title: Our Pledge
Format: CD
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"As above. The CD package is a manila envelope with stickers on the front and back, and a printed card insert. Some (in the U.S.) have suggested that the package is crap, although people overseas dont seem to think so. The truth is the I just hate jewel boxes." - Swill Radio.

Artist: SHADOW RING, THE
Title: Im Some Songs
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Posthumous final LP recorded in 2002 that completed the 10 year life cycle of The Shadow Ring. This LP was recorded in Poughkeepsie NY over a 3 week period. The atmosphere is tense and stoned. A depressing joke -- one punchline after another. Im Some Songs was recorded by Darren Harris, Graham Lambkin and Tim Goss -- a record which pays its own tribute to its own fallen heroes." - Swill Radio. Both drearily suffocating and absolutely life affirming - record of the year thus far.. easy. 2007 release back in stock.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SHADOW RING, THE
Title: Lighthouse
Format: Double LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"To enter the world of the Shadow Ring is to enter a surreal anti-world of bizarre song structure. Lighthouse will rank with Trout Mask Replica and Tago Mago as both one of the most avant garde and the most eccentric double LPs of all time. Unlike those two records, Lighthouse features no instrumental pyrotechnics, instead relying on odd sonic combinations, startling lyrics, and a very painterly use of minimal studio technology. Absolutely essential listening if you are interested in modernist stretching of song form with extraordinary results." - Swill Radio. Incredible release back in stock! Features Adris Hoyos and Scott and Karla IFCO.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SHADOW RING, THE
Title: Lindus
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Long delayed follow-up to Lighthouse. Over the last decade no other band have prompted such strong reaction as The Shadow Ring. Loved or hated, their unique and powerful sound has been totally impossible to ignore. Lindus sees that sound polarized to its logical and most satisfying extreme. Strange, claustrophobic sound-worlds build and overlap, creating a listening environment that is uncompromising, disturbing, yet always original. The mood is bleak and deflated throughout, providing a stark contrast to the carnival that was Lighthouse. The simple use of synths, electronics, tapes and voice has never been more effective. The Shadow Ring are that rare thing: a true underground band unaffected by trend or whim, and Lindus is their most supreme statement yet. Special edition of 500 copies." - Swill Radio. Highly Recommended!

Artist: TART
Title: Bring In The Admiral
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Tart (Graham Lambkin, Karla Borecky, and Scott Foust) presents the world with their second LP, Bring In The Admiral. Since the release of their first LP, Radio Orange, Tart has been playing and honing their trade at various shows in the Northeast. Using the same minimal instrumentation as the live shows (two small casios, guitar, and a shortwave/cassette boombox plus a few studio effects and The Anti-Naturals trademark: tight, subtle, and yet powerful editing), Tart produces a dazzling array of scenarios, a testament to deranged beauty. Tart is a band that truely does not sound like anyone else. Beautiful color cover. Who doesnt need a little Tart in their life?" - Swill Radio.
SOLD OUT

Artist: TART
Title: Radio Orange
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The debut LP from the trio of: Karla Borecky, Graham Lambkin, and Scott Foust, recorded and assembled over 8 months between 1999 and 2000. Tart is an exquisite combination of three distinct minds, much like the skillful structure of diverse, yet subtle, ingredients in a piquant and nostalgic recipe: The Past as well as The Future. Tart blends together these strange elements in an organic yet totally disciplined style that renders many of their contemporaries as either flabby or boring. Radio Orange presents 7 original pieces of expertly edited new music-form. From the opening tape-collage miniatures, The Rabbits of Mangtarau (pts 1 & 2), through to the indeterminacy and excitement of the closing title-track, Radio Orange carves its identity through great use of diversified expression. The analog drone / vox duet: Astride Such Delicate Pins; the bizarre environmental action, Woman In Her Womb; the fragile tone composite, The Mums; and the grinding electronic surge of (the almost 20 minute) Chopin in a Shell all help complete the program in classic style. The overall sound is both hypnotic and explosive, with each side being carefully sequenced to maximize the fact. Radio Orange comes complete with a beautiful full-color sleeve, designed by Karla, and contrasting monotone labels by Graham. The super-modernist avant garde continues to raise its aesthetic head under the romantic banner of the Anti-Naturals. Tart is fabulous." - Swill Radio.

Artist: TIETCHENS, ASMUS
Title: Teils Teils
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Ive been a fan of Asmus Tietchens music since Formen Letzter Hausmusik came out in 1984. That LP fascinated me and I soon began acquiring anything I could by this strange musical force. Ive learned a lot from his music over the years and we became acquainted via the post in the late 90s. As it turns out, we both have an extreme fondness for cigarette smoking and an interest in Max Nordau, so what better place for his first LP release in years than Swill Radio? The side-long Teilmenge 20 starts off the LP with an odd manic ticking that never lets up. Other sounds ebb and flow throughout and the whole piece has the rare quality of sounding totally artificial and yet organic at the same time. The second side slows things down with three tracks of dripping industrial ambience. The whole LP brings to my mind an atmosphere of waiting. To quote my good friend Matt Krefting, No ones music sounds both as cold and as emotional in quite the same way as the music of Asmus Tietchens." -Swill Radio.

Artist: TOBACCONISTS, THE
Title: Prometheus
Format: 7"
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The first Swill Radio 7" in 26 years dating back to The Story Of Failures Negative Fulfillment On The 83 Spitting Circuit EP. The Tobacconists are Frans de Waard and me and we are both heavy smokers. The Tobacconists did a few shows across Europe in the Spring of 2009 and recorded studio versions of our live material which should be released as an LP by Tourettes Records at some point. We did other recordings as well and from them Frans put together this excellent single. Prometheus is a fire-stealing liver-eater with a truly astounding sonic palette. Dr. Peratis Laboratory has some dark secrets indeed and they are revealed here for the very first time. The infernal mechanism! Great cover by Jos Meeuw and a real 7" sleeve! Fantastic!" -Scott Foust

Title: Lasting
Format: Cass
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A friend of mine who is in the business tells me that the stock of chrome cassettes should start to run out around the middle of this year as no one is producing them anymore. This is distressing in that not only will it lead to the sad demise of Pineapple Tapes, but also because I do all of my music with a stereo field cassette field recorder and a 4 track cassette machine. I feel like Ive finally become really good at putting together music this way and now it will be obsolete. Just like me! Putting that aside, I thought it would be great for Pineapple Tapes to go out with a bang and what better bang than an international compilation 90? So, I invited some of my friends and associates and Lasting has emerged. I must say that everyone sent excellent tracks and I did my best in sequencing the material, keeping in mind the great From Brussels With Love tape. The artists are listed below. Salud Lasting! Foust!, Karla Borecky, Graham Lambkin, Emeralds, BRRR, Dead Girls Party, Tim Goss, Frans de Waard, Asmus Tietchens, Ian Middleton, Vikki Jackman, Weyes Bluhd, Matt Krefting, The Collection Of The Late Howell Bend, Andrew Chalk, Idea Fire Company." -Swill Radio

Artist: WEHOWSKY, RALF
Title: eaRLy W - One: In Search Of C.R.
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"First in a series of LP-only releases documenting the early work of Ralf Wehowsky. In Search of C.R. was originally released as a cassette in 1980 by the Wahrnehmungen label (renamed Selektion in 1982). The late 70s and early 80s produced a lot of fascinating music, inspired by the free space opened up by punk. There was a lot of movement toward exploring non-rock forms (improvisation, electronic composition, etc.) This is a fine example of the type of experimentation going on at the time and an interesting look at the early musical development of RLW, who, unlike most of his contemporaries, continues his experimentation to this day." - Swill Radio.
