Artist: COLD SUN
Title: Dark Shadows
Format: CD
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"First time available on CD, Cold Sun from Austin, Texas was recorded in 1970 in the legendary Sonobeat studios, where the Mariani and Johnny Winter first LPs were produced. The Cold Sun band are considered contemporaries of Velvet Underground and The Fugs, often listed as being in a similar vein but inspirations for this unique piece actually go back to the desperate, haunted Joe Meek. All songs lyrically express dark, mystic poetry with the true 60s psychedelic floating/distorted fuzz spirit presented in short compact mini-epics along with several mind blowing long tunes, such as Ra-Ma (11 min.), Here In The Year (9 min.) and Fall (7 min.). Discovered by Rockadelic Records of Dallas, Texas in 1991, the Dark Shadows album saw the light of day the next year as a limited LP version, to become today one of the most important and revered US psychedelic underground albums from the early 70s. Rockadelic heard it in the form of an old scratchy acetate that one of the Cold Sun band members had made in order to be able to play the recording at friends` parties on their turntables. The acetate only contained 2/3 of the songs but so greatly impressed them that Rockadelic managed together with bandleader Bill Miller to release the complete sessions from master tapes. Autoharp wizard Miller eventually spearheaded Roky Ericksons international debut as the Cold Sun band joined forces with Roky in 1974 and became BliebAlien, later evolved into The Aliens and backed Roky on his famous albums and historical concerts. Carefully remastered from the master tapes, this album will bring new rewarding listening experiences in expanded fidelity, plus 2 unreleased non-album songs, authentic Live/Concert recordings of Live Again (10 min.) and Mind Aura (7 min.). The fidelity of these reel to reel live recordings is also remarkable. The CD and Vinyl issues will both have an extended booklet/insert with liner notes by Jello Biafra plus rare photos and other surprises. According to Patrick (Lama) Lundborg from Lysergia.com: Best Rockadelic LP ever, and in my opinion the best Texas LP of the time. Enjoy this ONE-HOUR psychedelic Happening, a must-have 60s/70s heavy uber-psych masterpiece!" - World In Sound.

Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Lineup: Lead guitar & expansive guitar, horizontal bass, regular & extensionist drums, loco-drums & asymmetric drumming, wah-vocals & story, background organ & keyboard, shouts & effects, 4 track tape recorder. One man All-Made Record-Excavator into the deep limbo of egoXploitation. Features 43 min. of decadent loco self-conduct & mystifying woodoolectric playing, directly dropped down from the sole complexion of individual force as a plural humans sonic concoction, the alone-lineup that never existed but in the incarnation of one: Full-Blown Expansion. Get into Gunslingers founding member alchemy - supreme wild stuff of weird, abstract & deviationist multi-instrumental solo performs, improvised & composed and elevated separately on each instrument & track by GR (mostly in one take).Along with the whole instrumental lineup, analog 4 track tape recording & other insinuation (lead guitar & expansive guitar, horizontal bass, regular & extensionist drums, loco-drums & asymmetric drumming, wah-vocals & story, background organ & keyboard, shouts & effects, 4 track tape recorder), the record comes up in a limited Digipack edition assorted of GRs mesmerizing iconographic artwork, plus original secret visionary liners by Cold Sun-The Aliens legendary autoharpist Billy Miller. Careful with that Descent along the an-ti-fohn-nuls 13 min. of extensionist drumming and seminal acid stoned guitars & wah-vocals driving that leads to the great infernal boogie accident- Vs the regular alternation (in rhythm & guitar color tone) of the fuzzy oniric Transfiguration on a sepiachord- Vs the wizardesque inspiration of The metal spike, GRs one very archetypal & representative of the instant composition process & the superposition of orchestral muses. And careful again with that explosive insane unmethodic The intercessor speaks, some ultra-shouting waves traumatic 7 min. towards the abyssal fluxus of koZmic Rock-Vs The scene/slowlys getting louders ritual rotative-leslie & expansive wah noise guitars coming with special voice box- Vs all stoned day long they take you s impossible alinear & asymmetric instrumental superposition (includ. transcendental background organ) backing up immaculate spoken poetry- Vs the enigmatic analog keys & clair-obscure of Blind Black or pearly white. Bliss!" -World in Sound

Artist: GUNSLINGERS
Title: Manifesto Zero
Format: LP
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
"Who should have thought some incoming spawn would survive No More Invention (2008)? Yes sirs, inside the Grand Procreators consumed ashes, still half lying half standing thus was some rebel mass endowed with the urge to appear in face of the fallen stuff. It would be chemically determined as a following sacrificial revenge after Invention got lost 2 years ago in a rock located in San Pedro Ville, France. And then came rebellion appearing in its entire regained nudity, though it was given a load of Seltz water so it can endure its own terrifying blast power. Here it is -- now Maniacs & Zealots, be afraid of intending to tickle the Beast from your players! World In Sound presents Manifesto Zero, Gunslingers second atrocious little deformed baby, recorded on the infuriated November of 2009 while evil-red-eyed wolves were getting enraged in the frightened night. No doubt it has to be a relentless sonic testimony in the style of throwing Vitriol at the snobbish subcultures face and, Willynilly, youll be given a proper naughty chase and a sixfold punishment always greedy of its prey from start to finish. Rhythmically Cyclopean as overexcited as starving due to the constant hammering of its ritualistic tempo & contra-tempo gluttony, its disturbing debauchery of lysergic & contemplative elements gives besides the whole savagery thing some multipleheaded Beast aspect by leading its own sound color touch (& its obvious axis of devastation) right into the alley of a space glider under oversaturated hypnosis ; and more generally, into variable expressions & exploration areas which stand between Underground Rock Music unclassified genres & subgenres. Demented Guitar wall-of-acid-riffs, pissed off takeoffs & instrumental smashs on bewitchment mode, harmonic death traps, pulsatory frenzy & insane grooves in the likes of a vicious contortionist highway, startling surrealistic vocals sealed to a psychotic Daedalus-esque bass unfurling, and ultimately a scary statement of visceral power. The whole thing devoted to the cult of analog 4 track tape recording, the everlasting oily machine & Slingers dynamo. Manifesto Zero is nothing less than an authentic firebrand." -World In Sound

Artist: GUNSLINGERS
Title: No More Invention
Format: CD
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"Here is the self-confessed Slingers electric companion, a huge onset tour de force hailing from the realm of San Pedro (France) and that should cause weird effects through inventions great (golden) ass. First came Gunslingers, raising against the big bullshit, then came No More Invention, wearing a nine-acts sling of a hilarious outrage. Introducing the ultimate assault of her illegitimate three sons, also known as massacre-rock deviant inquisitors, a French deconstructionist trio who needed to abuse the artifacts of some lost rock synthesis in one total, furious and quintessential record, like an evil paradox of rock. Expect pure apotheosis of wild horror biker freakouts, acid avant-punk and trippy psych-noise with no respite from the actions breakneck speed. Gregory Raimo aka GRs incriminating unspoken yaya words and unparalleled orgiastic guitar savagery over control, spacey analog effects fulminations and feedbacks culminating with Matthieu Canaguiers hypnotic and castrationist ritual thunder bass, and Antoine Hadjioannous prophetic mad with scalp crashing down drums-machete. From the gigantic 13 minute long blowing Krauty prayer of Lighter Slinger Festival to the frightening embodiment of Nathaniel Hawthornes The Ministers Black Veil, this is some magnetizing unknown & sacred distillation. Comes with a four page booklet of awesome artistic statement in a limited digipack edition. Loud and irreverent up to hilarity, and paradoxically, largely out of any category, this freakish explosive mixture, recorded in 2007 in three days, re-pioneers the hijacking of rock landmarks. Probably based on Lady Hysterias (herself) voluntary uncontrolled intent, Gunslingers No More Invention spreads the enlightenment of catastrophic happenings and a nonsense of epic blackout scenes into electric round of fury. Be prepared for a constant state of shock." -World In Sound

Artist: JAMES, MICHAEL
Title: Runaway World
Format: LP
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $42.00
"This album is a legendary artifact for all 60s and 70s music collectors, original copies in good condition change hands for about 500 US$. The spirit of the music is a tasty combination between aggressive groovy fuzz-garage-hard rock and atmospheric psych-folk with moody vocals and a poetic message, comparable to World In Sounds legendary Phantasia or Dr. Hooker. In between perfectly arranged songs like You Dont Walk On My Street, I Remember and the psych-trip Sleepers, youll hear weird spoken word themes as Guatamalan Strange, Electronic Silver and heavy-riff instrumentals. This was the debut release by Michael James, whos still active in the music business with his own label, Empath Records, and the groups Children of the Risk, Michael Yonkers and Mounting Santa feat. Dr. Fink of Princes Revolution. This LP-reissue is produced from the original analog master tapes." -World in Sound. Classic Minneapolis private press weirdness.

Artist: MAGNIFICENT BROTHERHOOD
Title: Dope Idiots
Format: LP
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $31.00
"If you are into uninspired lo-fi garage, turn the page, this is not for you. If you are turned on by names like The Music Machine or The Seeds, then you should certainly get to know The Magnificent Brotherhood. Dope Idiots brings you twelve original songs, full of trumpet-like fuzz guitars, Farfisa organ swirls and Zappa-esque lyrics, all blended with a punk attitude. Despite being faithful to a vintage sound, The Magnificent Brotherhood have developed their unique songwriting style. And we say unique because it doesnt sound like a Nuggets cover band. This is music. This is the real thing!" - World in Sound

Artist: STRAWBERRY WINDOW
Title: S/T
Format: LP + 7"
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $53.00
"Strawberry Window hailed from the San Francisco Bay Areas East Bay music scene in the mid 60s and were truly one of the early birds and innovators who made their own distinct brand of rock-n-roll. They played in a heavy-psychedelic-garage style, sounding somewhat reminiscent of the Jefferson Airplane, (early) Mad River, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Frumious Bandersnatch. These previously unreleased recordings have survived for the last four decades in a box on a shelf in a band members closet. Meticulous care and detail has been taken to master these recordings with a fresh, open approach, while ensuring that the sound and integrity of the vintage songs remained intact. The amazing music of this guitar based quartet ranges from catchy electric folk tunes and West Coast garage rock to raw energetic acid jams lasting over 10 minutes. Youll be impressed by the (stereo) sound quality throughout their ten original cuts not to mention their freaky live version of J D Loudermilks Tobacco Road. Its an out right shame that this talented bunch were not signed to a record deal back then. (In 1968 they switched guitar players, added a girl singer and changed their name to the Dandelion Wine and recorded several songs and also released a private pressing of a 4 song 7 inch EP.) World In Sound presents for the first time ever, the music of and the history behind this talented group of songwriters and wild performers known as the Strawberry Window. The LP-version will be 180g vinyl, handmade extra heavy sleeve, poster and a 3-track 7" EP, in total 60 minutes of intense but melodic performances that will take you on a trip back to the halcyon days of the Summer of Love. Discover it, its truly a masterpiece from the roots of the legendary SF-Sound!" -World In Sound
