Artist: OATH
Title: s/t
Format: CDR
Label: Oath
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Amazing debut solo release from the most under-recorded member of Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice. Satya Sais Oath project couldn?t be further removed from the psych folk boogie / blues of her husband Wooden Wand or the deliriously red-eyed improv of the extended Vanishing Voice or even her work with her heavy psych band Totem. Satyas solo work leaves folk music behind entirely - think Let The Power Fall-era Fripp, Mort Garsons Black Mass, Adelbert Von Deyens Planetary Best, Bobby Beausoleils Lucifer Rising soundtrack, Louise Huebners instructional LPs, and even occasionally some of Burzums weirdo experiments in MIDI. The bulk of Oaths self-titled CD is heavy, creepy synth exercises with Satyas trademark vocals, with occult lyrics echoing and overlapping into a nightmarish song cycle, complete with a curveball instrumental cover of the Daddy Cool / Spectrum prog classic Make Your Stash,with guest Wooden Wand on bass. Limited to 100 copies, and a teaser for Satyas eventual full length LP on Yik Yak. Certainly with this release, Satya proves herself to be the best kept secret of this far-reaching tribe. 100 copies."

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.

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.

Title: Into You
Format: LP
Label: Obscure Oxide/Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"One of the holy grails of Indianapolis private-pressdom (surpassed only by Zerfas and Anonymous) available again in its original format! Ray McKay Pierle and his musically-adept brothers and friends partied, jammed and partied some more on Indys south side throughout the mid-70s, forming a band (Loos) which managed to garner zero media attention at the time. However, Rays trusty Teac four-track was always close at hand and countless hours of home recordings were induced onto magnetic tape, as well as a few songs laid down at a local studio. After a brief hiatus, the core members reconvened as McKay, and created their sole document, the 300-press Into You album (1978); the LP was given to friends and family and consigned in nearby record shops. A mere 15 years had to pass before the collecting world discovered the highly-personal songwriting, tight playing, and not-so-well-hidden West-Coast stylistic touches. A vinyl reissue was locally produced back then but its long gone, so heres a new all analogue, master tape edition for a new generation to savor." - Obscure Oxide/ Lion Productions.

Title: The Manuscript Found in Saragossa
Format: LP
Label: Obuh
Country: Poland
Price: $36.00
"The score for Wojciech Jerzy Hass motion picture The Manuscript Found in Saragossa was composed in 1963 by Krzysztof Penderecki, who back then was an avant-garde artist of the tumultuous spirit in search of his own musical voice. It acquired its final shape in Warsaws Polish Radio Experimental Studio, then at its visionary best under the directorate of Josef Patkowski. The music for The Manuscript Found in Saragossa is a mind-bending mixture of uncontrollable electro-acoustics, sweeping and yet light baroque stylizations, daemonic soundings and grotesque illustrations. Released separately from the movie for the first time, after close to half of a century the score has lost none of its original magic. Quite the opposite -- drawing its vital energy from literary and cinematic phantoms, it appears to exert some sort of a demiurgic influence upon the listeners imagination, which suddenly becomes awakened to the memories of previously unrealized images, experiences and emotions. The manuscript found in Saragossa seems to have no end... and so, paraphrasing the pious monk, I license myself to call out to all travelers of imagination: Pasheko! Pasheko! In the Name of Our Lord I command you to listen and dream!" - Obuh. Taken from original masters and released for the first time. Limited to 500 numbered copies in a gatefold, solid sleeve. Never to be repressed on LP or CD.

Country: Finland
Price: $5.00
"My First Brush With Infinity is Minmaes latest 7" on the Finland based Octane Grammophon label and includes some of the best Minmae stuff Ive heard yet. "Were All Friends Here" has pulsating keyboard lines, almost jazz styled drumming, and slowly winding power guitars that remind me of the Finnish band Circle, and makes for a floating but heavy rocking psychedelic ride. Great stuff. I hope this gives us a hint as to what the next Minmae full length will sound like because this is excellent stuff." -Jerry Kranitz, Aural Innovations 2003.

Country: Finland
Price: $8.00
"Nimbus 2000 is another of Daf Roberts (Alphane Moon, Our Glassie Azoth, Blodeuedd) projects and again his musical offerings give us something that is really worthy of investigation. "Kettle of fish walking - compete recordings 1999-2003" contains every Nimbus 2000 track Daf Roberts has recorded and released on his own Oggum label. Some of these recordings originally came out on a series of split 7" eps. Further Nimbus 2000 tracks were released (two to be precise) on a charity compilation CD Oggum released featuring Magic Carpathians, Electroscope and Flying Saucer Attack, to name a few. "Kettle of Fish Walking" includes all of these tracks with two brand new songs exclusive to this compilation. And the music...? Deep-space exlporing. picture yourself voyaging somewhere between a time and an unknown. from somewhere you hear a softly spoken voice reading childrens fairytales. All this is realised within a totally rich, colorful, unique and warm soundscape which recalls the sound of 70s german synth-wizards Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Magical. Have a flow and go. Note that this is a MiniCD of 20 minutes." - Octane Grammophon.

Price: $8.00
"Plat Ypus have been enjoying a cult status in Finnish underground music for a couple of years. With this long-delayed 7" single, they let themselves go loose once again. And the result is, as usual, an astonishing mixture of twisted electronics and krautrock-like free-form jamming. Might be challenging to listen to, but once you get the idea, youll be rewarded. The single is housed in a folded satanic black and white sleeve, and the disc have no labels - think of self-released 7" black metal singles from the 80s. Grab a copy before its too late - limited to 100 copies worldwide." - Octane Grammophon. "Superb out there electro/percussion free-ride from a new to me Finnish duo. Its dense & loose; the electronics circle & dive while the drumming keeps a cockeyed yet steady time sorta like what you imagine No Pussyfooting mightve sounded like if a tipsy Jaki Liebezeit had invaded the sessions. Supposedly only a 100 of these worldwide. If theys got anything else available, my door is open." - Siltblog.

Artist: ANALOGY
Title: The Suite
Format: LP
Label: Ohrwaschl
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
2017 repress. "Ohrwaschl Records present a reissue of Analogys The Suite. German progressive rock band Analogy released its sole classic, Analogy (1972), and even scored a deal for Italy but soon seemed to have faded into obscurity. Nobody really was aware of a recording named The Suite that happened around 1980. It presented the folky side of Analogy, who seemed at least quite creative for a time when electronic pop took over the whole music scene. Analogy went into the opposite direction and reached out for musical realms that have been visited by legendary English acts like Trees, Fairport Convention or Steeleye Span. Dramatic and powerful rock with a progressive edge meets mystical and magical British folk in a way that is reminiscent of an English or Irish band from 1972 rather than a bunch of Germans about to cross the threshold to the 80s. This is handmade and the musicians play with a simmering passion. Two epic compositions were originally part of The Suite but for this reissue, a bonus track has been unearthed from the vaults to add even more value to this gem. Several passages have a theatrical approach and feel like music from a stage play and movie like The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) or records Meat Loaf recorded in the late 70s, but those aspects are only tinges of color in an overwhelming sound picture drawn by this truly progressive band. For everybody who loves the heavier Horslips and epic stuff like Omega, this album develops, passage to passage, and makes this journey into your dreams a worthwhile trip." - Ohrwaschl.

Artist: DIES IRAE
Title: First
Format: LP
Label: Ohrwaschl
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
2016 release. "Ohrwaschl Records present a reissue of Dies Iraes First, originally released in 1971. German proto heavy metal and proto doom metal has always been more of an underground genre due to the fact that most bands only reached a regional level in every aspect. Dies Irae are certainly something of an exception to the rule when it comes to the quality. First is heavy and dark with open song structures that leave much room for experimentation. Despite the fact that the simmering fuzz guitar cuts through like a chainsaw, there are still many parts in each song showcasing a fondness for playful jazz-inspired passages where all musicians prove their skills and conjures a gloomy atmosphere. The musicians have a light-footed swing but in other cases, Dies Irae go utterly crazy in a psychedelic freak-out fashion. Trippy moments are abundant on First and come in between the hard-hitting, heavily-grinding doom outbursts. Nobody was even eager to call it doom yet but all the ingredients were there - Think of a jam session with Black Sabbath and Amon Düül II. This album is highly original and deserving of a place among the greatest krautrock albums of all times. The acid is audible and doing its work in a very skillful way. For fans of proto metal from the early 70s, who dig music with a progressive edge and have a fondness for trippy psychedelic rock."

Artist: MCCHURCH SOUNDROOM
Title: Delusion
Format: LP
Label: Ohrwaschl
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
2017 repress. "Ohrwaschl Records present a reissue of McChurch Soundrooms Delusion, originally released in 1971. The cover of the gatefold sleeve promises sheer darkness and madness - A skull in a birds nest on the back and a skull covered with candle wax on the front. The rather pastoral folky beginning seems to prove these ominous expectations wrong but the heavy progressive organ driven rock of this German outfit comes close to what the artwork suggests. "Delusion" contains twisted passages with an atmosphere of sheer insanity and heavy rocking outbursts of the classic kind that shakes souls and drags them into a different world. Some classic blues rock parts get thrown in for good measure but the focus on progressive and heavy aspects. "Dream Of A Drummer" proves that the bassist a real maniac as he really smokes it in some of the more loose sections when he and the drummer create flashing rhythms upon which the lead guitarist takes off into other spheres. Being crazy must be of importance here but McChurch Soundroom are sensitive to dynamic as well, keeping the listeners attention when it comes to lengthy instrumental jam parts with duels and dialogues. All-in-all, this is definitely a prototypical 70s heavy progressive outfit and it has the spirit of most UK bands from 1969 to 1971, including vocals with a flawless English pronunciation. Listening beyond the melodies, there are some weird rhythm patterns. Solemn organ parts lead the listener to the darkest and dirtiest backstreet pub before getting struck by powerfully rocking jazz passages. McChurch Soundrooms Delusion takes a trip into the remote areas of urban life, all of it in a quite heavy fashion. For fans of Gravy Train or early Jethro Tull." - Ohrwaschl.

Artist: PATERNOSTER
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Ohrwaschl
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
2017 repress. Reissue of Paternosters self-titled album, originally released in 1972. Not every kraut album comes from a German band. Brainticket were in fact Swiss with a Belgian mastermind, for example. Paternoster on the other hand, who play an organ-driven solemn progressive rock with a heavy edge, come from Austria and really enlighten the heart of all fans of dark and often morbid rock music. It might be a good idea to overhear the pronunciation and the whole lyrics and take the vocals as another instrument, adding some color to the whole picture. The voices are indeed quite charismatic and memorable as are the compositions. The late 1960s psychedelic scene has surely made an impact on this band, considering the fuzzy lead guitar, creeping rhythms and wicked keyboards often creating a climate of sheer dementia with the mournful voice of the singer on top. The record sounds as if the band was jamming in a giant church hall and therefore has a really gloomy mood. There are quite a few freak-outs to be experienced along the way and in most cases they turn into some epic space trips that recall the greatest early Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd processions just with a funeral atmosphere. This is a mournful album that sounds tragic before even considering the lyrics center on the average working day of an average man. Could progressive rock get more demented than Van Der Graaf Generator? This is vivid proof. Made by freaks, for freaks." - Ohrwaschl.

"2016 release. Leonore Boulanger and Maam-Li Merati met each other in Paris in 2011 at a concert of Azerbaijani master-musician Alim Qasimov and his daughter Ferghana Qasimova. Maam-Li Merati is an Iranian musician that was born in Kermanshah, near the Iraqi border. In addition to having a doctorate in Musicology, he has worked with artists such as Iranian singer Shahram Nazeri and French novelist Luis Bunuels screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière (for a project devoted to 13th century Persian poet and Sufi mystic Rumi). Shortly after their meeting, Maam-Li Merati started to teach the art of Persian classical music to Léonore Boulanger, a young French musician that released three albums on the multi-faceted label Le Saule. During the spring of 2015, they recorded some first lyrical odes, some dastgāhs for two voices, and traditional string instruments that would later become the sides A and C of La Maison dAmour. Later, Matthieu Ferrandez, church organist and researcher in electronic music, joined the two for sides B and D, weaving a cosmic lace with the sighs of harmonium and acoustic organs.

Title: An Idea In Everything
Format: Double 10"
Label: Okraina
Country: Belgium
Price: $22.00
"2016 release. When David Greenberger first embarked on what has become a life-long journey, drummer Chris Corsano was not yet five years old! In 1979, after graduating from art school in Boston, Greenberger took the job of activities director at the Duplex Nursing Home, an all-male elder care facility in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and began collecting the stories, poems and music reviews of its aged patients for what became his Duplex Planet project, an undertaking that would eventually encompass nearly 200 issues of a digest-sized magazine, a series of CDs, books, comics, and performance art. Eventually the nursing home closed, but David has remained engaged in what has become the central art form of his life: the "art of conversation." Three decades later, Chris Corsano set in motion the project present here. With guitarist and banjo player Glenn Jones, a longtime friend of both Greenberger and Corsano, the three began recording in Greenbergers living room in upstate New York. In just three days, with no advance preparation, they recorded the 28 tracks that make up An Idea In Everything. Corsano improvised, Jones invented new tunings for his banjo and guitar on the fly, and Greenberger selected and read stories in direct response to the music. Everything was spontaneous and live. Despite the dark and sad feeling of some of the texts (dealing with aging, memory loss, etc.), there is also humor, joy and grit. The resulting is a rollercoaster of emotions, a glittering patchwork of sonic atmospheres and an oral encyclopedia on dozens of subjects. David Greenberger on the release: "When newcomers hear that I have regular conversations and interviews with elderly people, they assume I collect oral history. What that assumption implies is that when one grows old we become solely a repository of our past. From the start, my mission has been to offer a range of characters who are already old, so that we can get to know them as they are in the present, without celebrating or mourning the loss of who they were before." Recorded by Chris Corsano in Greenwich, NY, February 2013; Mixed by Matthew Azevedo and Glenn Jones in Jamaica Plain, MA; Mastered by Matthew Azevedo at Endless Audio, Providence, RI.

Price: $18.00
"In the company of Gilles Poizat (guitar, trumpet, voice), Catherine Hershey sings the poems of her grandfather Galen E. Hershey, pastor-farmer in Pontiac, Michigan. The poems come from a collection of poetry written between 1946 and 1976. Features Frédéric Jean on whistle on "Dilemma & Decision". Mixed by Gilles Olivesi; Mastered by Harris Newman; Illustration by Gwénola Carrère. Florian Caschera on the release: "As his name readily admits, this disc of tranquil hallucination (but beware) bursts forth in all its absurd duration around eight poems that fire the Reverend Galen Hershey, grandfather of Catherine Hershey, who sings here, recorded more or less in secret, in his notebooks. They are simple and beautiful poems, which have the simplicity and beauty of poems which are recorded more or less secretly in notebooks. The secret of the notebooks is more or less the simplest and the most beautiful of the secrets... Gilles Poizat, trembling in the reverb of a patient guitar, tells his furtive notes like a string of bones, and pulls a trumpet the kind of subtly diffracted traits that are heard on Robert Wyatts Rock Bottom (1974), whistles as we hide to cry and sing like a baby whale dreaming (or he shouts, like Jad Fair stuck at the top of the slide, it could make you laugh but its heartbreaking). Catherine Hershey, eyes wide open on what comes out of her mouth and makes of this smoke, gives to her melodies the curve of the most intriguing calves. They are sad and full songs, somewhat veiled, whose hearts overflow everywhere, but with a quiet dawn sure of its dawn legitimacy. As all the music summons another, one will think of the rhymes of Ivor Cutler, the refrain of Pearl in The Night of the Hunter (1955), to the sweetest ballads of Shirley Collins, to some Elizabethan airs as they were already, in another life, made effervescent by Syd Barrett. We will think of it without it hindering us in anything. And then we will not think at all, too busy to look after our blues, these exquisite blues bring our souls the songs which we know will never be forgotten." - Okraina.

Yiddish-Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side by Ed Sanders (b. 1939), founder of the mythical Fugs in 1964 and also a writer, publisher, activist, etc., is an epic piece of almost 18 minutes in length, a vocal setting of a dense and reasoned text that runs to eight typed pages, 1400 words, 8500 characters. First issued on cassette in 1991 by the label Hyperaction P.C.C., the piece recalls an almost fifty-year history of Jewish militancy in New York by poetic means - combining historical scholarship, emotion and clarity, the echoes of the past found in the present: of the pogroms and escape from Eastern Europe in the 1880s up to the death of Meyer London, the Socialist member of Congress, in 1926 (not overlooking exile, the crossing of the Atlantic, arrival at Ellis Island, back-breaking work in the sweatshops, the creation of political parties and trade unions, the outbreak of the First World War - the rupture in the narrative caused by this is marked here by the passage from the A-side to the B-side of the record). This is a literary project that is simultaneously ambitious and highly personal and which cannot help but recall America: A History In Verse (nine volumes published between 1998-2008), which has occupied Ed Sanders for almost 15 years and which, over more than 3000 pages, recounts in verse the history - both poetic and political - of the United States. For this recording of Yiddish-Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side, Ed Sanders accompanies himself on a "pulse lyre", a small, finger-operated synthesizer which he invented himself in order to accompany the declamation of his texts in the manner of the acoustic lyre used by the ancient poets (Sanders studied Greek at university). Yiddish-Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side is a text (and a recording) of dual resonance, animated by the fits and starts of history as well as the rhythm of the writing (and reading) of Ed Sanders. This reissue was re-recorded in mono in 2006; Mastered by Harris Newman (Grey Market Mastering, Montréal 2014); Illustrations by Gwénola Carrère; Comes in a gatefold sleeve.” - Okriana.

"..The Room Isnt Big Enough is the creation of five veteran Columbus, Ohio scenesters gathering together for a handful of nights at Tommy Jays Barn/Studio in Harrisburg, Ohio. Most of the songs were written "especially for" this project. Don Howland (Gibson Bros, Bassholes), Jim Shepard (Vertical Slit, V3), Ron House (Great Plains, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments), Tommy Jay (Mike Rep and The Quotas, (Ohio)True Believers) and Mike Hummel (Mike Rep and The Quotas, "basement producer" extraordinaire) have been friends and supporters of each others music since the late seventies. It was generally agreed that some documentation to that fellowship should be recorded before the participants doddered off into "Old Age". This album _is_ that testimony. Although a good time was had, this album is not "good timey". These thirteen songs reflect the blues, folk, and punk roots heritage of all involved. Each song was sung by its lyricist, with the exception of "Half Off", which was sung by Don Howland / written by Ron House." - Old Age/No Age.

Title: Manifesto Rumorarmonico Post Futurista

Label: Old Europa Cafe
Country: Italy
Price: $45.00
"Vinyl compilation devoted to Luigi Russolo the father of Futurist music and the first man to theorize that music has to be composed mainly by rumors and not by harmonic sounds! His music was played with an instrument lIntonarumori or Rumorarmonio which was invented by himself. Russolo is the forefather and theorizer of the electronic music concept and for sure we can say today that he was the first man playing industrial music. For this project, we found four artists known for being neo-Futurists and uncompromising industrial artists. GX Jupitter-Larsen from the USA is known for being the mind behind The Haters and for all his very futurist performances where a click becomes the main sound. Merzbow from Japan is the father of Japanese noise. This is the sound Russolo would be playing if he were alive today. With his first project Zoviet France, Robin Storey, aka Rapoon, was one of the very first artists using toy instruments. Sacher Pelz from Italy was the very first project by Maurizio Bianchi, also known as MB. He was one of the very first artists using electronic noise. Each artist gives his contribution to this tribute playing long tracks on a full LP side. White vinyl. Discs are packed in a hand-numbered limited edition of 765 copies -- a folding cover shows Luigi Russolo and his Rumorarmonio." - Old Europa Cafe

"Back when Old Gold was all about cassette tapes, we got a curious package in the mail from Winnipeg. In it was a letter from Michael Dumontier extolling the virtues of our Howard Finster cassette release, some highly amusing collaborative drawings, and a "Tape for Old Gold" crafted with unique handmade slipcase/booklet. That began an ongoing correspondence/swap of art and music with numerous Canadians within and around the soon-to-be-famous Royal Art Lodge collective, all tied together by Dumontier. As our enthusiasm for their efforts grew, we revisited the first tape in 2000, and this time it sounded like a record. Michael tracked down what musicians he could, made a few changes, and the result is Songs from 20th Century Homes, an LP with hand-screened cover released in an edition of just over 200, with songs by Eyeball Hurt and the Medicine, Drue and Myles Langlois, Albatross, DJ EZ Pot Roast, and two tracks from the always mind-melting Untanned Hide of a Young Cow (whose 10" on Old Gold is sold out, sorry), and snippets of artwork by Dumontier, Marcel Dzama, and Neil Farber.

Title: Fangs Of Lucifer
Format: LP
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
A surprising and well deserved reissue of 1981-86 era tracks by Naofumi Ishimarus project of 20 + years. Imagine a cross between prime Half Jap (Jad Fair even supplied the cover art to some of his tapes from the early 80s) with the some of the more electronic LAFMS projects and youll get the gist. Beautifully packaged as well. "Naofumi Iziwaru was another one of the first to respond to Old Golds formative request for musical submissions. With dozens of releases under the name Yximalloo dating back to the 1970s, Nao had put a transdimensional dent in the cassette underground and his collaborations with Jad Fair raised more than a few wooly eyebrows. He sent us numerous tapes and they put us on the floor in a puddle of our own souls crying out for more, rethinking our own music making, and asking to please - please! - let us re-release his music. This resulted in five tapes of our own hand-picked smorgasbord, resequenced at his request. When he began making CDs, we tackled the daunting challenge of compiling about 40 minutes worth of his best music from digital and analog to marry on clear vinyl. It took several years, a lot of late nights, and handfuls of reverse/fast forward, but in the end, we were happy, Nao was happy, and now you can be happy, too dammit. Electronic clank, off kilter funk, galactic babble, pre-historic riddims, utterly melodic snatches of techno wizardry are here set forth. Most were sold in Europe; grab what few are left from Fusetron. Comes in clear bag with clear inserts with track listing, musician credits (no small feat that!), and instructions for a performance piece called Fangs of Lucifer which we dare you to try, but not unsupervised." - Old Gold.

Format: Cass
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA

"Sounds like Zandosis first PSF release, just in time for 1974. Les Rallizes Denudes plus Kaoru Abe and a weather damaged reel of ?-inch tape. Merzbow, Nihilist Spasm Band, Blowhole and Gorgoroth are not so much analogues as they are (lost) reference points. The ancient easterners used to believe that when they ate animals, they took on their spirit, their properties. Here, Zandosis does that very thing by ingurgitating the zeitgeist of Cages "1st Construction in Metal," Merzbows "Rainbow Electronics," and the writings of Emile Cioran. Like Cioran---and Suzuki, even---Zandosis are adept at unclothing despair and laying bare its humor. If chasing ghosts is supposed to take you somewhere, then its to a Cambodian whorehouse where the porch folk sit all day and watch townies get mauled by rabid dogs. Think on this; add some teriyaki, sake and warm Budweiser and youll know where theyre comin from. Highly recommended." - Copper Green, 2004.

"In January of 2000, we got together with no pre-conceived notion of what wed sound like. T-Def (Charlie Parker, Free Bass, "Destroy All Music" on WREK FM) was known to be loud, frantic, noisy and deliberately so. Stewart (formerly of William Carlos Williams, Lustmordem, At War with Satan, and PissChrist) played drums with a tiny Han Bennink on one shoulder and a tiny Dave Lombardo on the other. I had an alto saxophone, a microphone and a borrowed amp. Together, the sky would be the limit or the sky would fall. Fast forward to March of 2003. That motherfucker George W. Bush is sending the country (and its young men and women) to fight a pre-emptive war for no real good reason. Wed been playing very free, early-FMP/Haters style music, and focused our sonic output on those pushing this invasion. The result was about 15 short bursts of energy directed at 15 members of the Project for the New American Century. It felt good. Damn good, in fact. And it sounded good. The next time we played live, we played this new hardcore set. The lazy art crowd in the house enjoyed it. We dug it, too, sent it to the Czech Republic, pressed it onto 220 heavy vinyl records, wrapped them in print shop cleaner paper, and are unleashing it on the world. Chris may list the song titles. He may not. Either way: "Colin Powell Uncle Tom" was omitted by the pressing plant, so if you want to hear that song, gather two of your friends, count to four real fast and start screaming liar and/or fucker or any combination of the two while your friends unleash a torrent of rage. When youre done, say sell out." - Marshall Avett; Old Gold.

Label: Old Gold/GD Stereo
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"180-gram vinyl LP edition of 510 in silkscreened jackets with art by Knickerbocker. A co-release with GD Stereo. When I first heard Tamio Shiraishi, I wanted to blow my eyes out. The opening burst of sheer overpowering SOUND of his sax on the "Our Lips Are Sealed" CD on Pure was all I needed to hear to know that I had to (a) get my hands on all his music, and (b) get a saxophone myself and have at it. Years later, here I am still trying, and there Shiraishi is cracking concrete and splitting bridges in half in New York City with his trusty horn. A follow up to the Fusetron one-sided 12", this 180 gram vinyl is a full length capturing two Summer concerts that Shiraishi and percussionist/artist/thinker/time traveler Sean Meehan put on every year in the Big Apple. I wasnt there, but Geoff Dugan was and recorded them for the rest of us poor saps. A third player should be given credit here, too, as the landscapes the duo chose for venues are just as much a part of the recording as the instruments played. The Manhattan Bridge and the municipal garage on 79th Street cradled, amplify, defy and deflect Shiraishi and Meehan. The passing traffic and trains make it a quartet. As for Meehan, I have no idea what hes doing. But its a damn fine thing whatever it is. Eat it up." - Marshall Avett, Old Gold. Highly Recommended!

*Death Message Blues is the powerful new album from UK swamp blues band THE INCA BABIES. Its their sixth album in a career spanning 28 years and marks their full return to live performance after the death of founder member bassist BILL MARTEN. Originally formed in Manchester in 1983 by guitarist and vocalist HARRY STAFFORD and bassist Marten, the band released four albums and recorded four sessions for the BBCs legendary John Peel Show before splitting in 1988. Reuniting in 2007, Stafford and Marten recruited GOLD BLADE drummer ROB HAYNES, but work on the new album was halted by Martens sudden death in 2008.  After a period of reflection, it was decided to complete the work that Marten had begun, with the bands long-time friend VINCE HUNT (A WITNESS, PURE SOUND) taking over on bass. Death Message Blues features twelve new tracks penned by Harry S. casting a net across fast and spiky R&B, swamp blues, bastard country and punk power. Lyrically, the songs observe usual Inca traits of wild characters, ghosts and murderous stories, with reflections too on the passing of Inca founding member, bassist Bill Marten." - Old Skull

Title: And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"This is the fifth solo offering by the Houston, Texas based pedal steel sorceress, Susan Alcorn. "The Heart Sutra" opens and is inspired by the "Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Wisdom", which was delivered by Buddha 2,500 years ago. It is a beautiful, yet solemn work that reverbates from within as Susan strums those magical strings. The title track, "And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar", was inspired by Messiaens "Et Expecto Ressurectionum Mortuorum". It is a near 16-minute epic of stirring, haunting sounds. Each note is stretched out and floats like a spirit on the wind in a graveyard. Ms. Alcorns approach to the pedal steel guitar is completely unique and she doesnt quite sound like anyone else. If one is patient enough, they will realize that she makes every note and space count. "The Glass is Already Broken" is another piece in which each melodic fragment is touching, somber and well-selected, yet it drifts into a more sinister area. "The First Turning of the Wheel" was inspired, oddly enough, by the late Bob Graettinger, composer & arranger for Stan Kentons classic album, "This Modern World/City of Glass". I am not quite sure how this music is related to Kentons modern big band work, but again I was moved by the solemn spaciousness. For "The Second Turning of the Wheel", the notes are again softly stretched out and immensely eerie. On "Three Minute Warning", Susan lets each sound swirl and be bathed in a haze or a ghost-like echo." - Bruce G. (Downtown Music Gallery)

It is rumored to be the gift of an English Duke to his French mistress, but this is simply conjecture." -- Metropolitan Museum of Art / The Cloisters, New York City  "Olde English Spelling Bee is one of those labels you can implicitly trust to provide you with the most brilliantly weird music. Their latest missive is a self titled shocker from Autre Ne Veut, a moocher from the same circles as Oneohtrix Point Never and all those weirdo Brooklyn types with an uncanny line in subtly skewed pop queerness. Seriously, this is one of the strangest, most jarringly unique records of the year, and we love it. At heart its an incredible pop album with traces of Prince, Prefab Sprout and Erasure at its core, but each melody and harmony is delivered with an off-key sleight of hand that really plays on your preconceptions and experience of classic synth pop. Theres definite nods to the soundtracks of John Hughes movies and the like, but its perhaps more like The Breakfast Club score remade by the Troma company for some secret pay-per-view internet channel. Autre Ne Veut has possibly made one of our favourite albums this year and we urge you to investigate without delay. Essential!" - Boomkat.

"This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. Theres an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing Bite Yr Tongue to the euphorically hooked-up Freudian Slips. Theres an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak -- making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none.

THE FLY: two micro-seconds before he gets his web-trapped body eaten by the world most gruesome spider EVER: and power-channel it thru the MOST horribly unmusical-rotten guitar speaker cones since the creation of “music.” Speaking of music: inside this LP there is none: is not just mere dribbling NOISE: its like a one dimensional terra-plane of cultural war of warbly Anime-frightmares clashing in a baby-dumping dumpster in a Baltimore/DC area alleyway during a WRETCHED static storm while the co-criminal on watch nods off on the job whilst Ipodin The Swankys. On a Tuesday morning. In the Spring. Ive seen pictures of this band: but someone pulled a horrid prank and replaced the bullet-belts and street punx ice grills with shorts, muffin tops and smiles. Huh? Confusion Chaos is the fighting spirit: The Lp begins with some semblance of structure and riffs but like a magician armed with 10,000,000 daisy-chained death metal pedals instead of card tricks: the cunning seems to come on too quick to warrant a double-featured extended stay, unless the members want to “Fuck More.” - Imagine if the Happy Flowers WERE Horribly Charred Infants and Anuss and instead of LSD as the catalyst it was Grande Lattes mixed with the magic dust from the excess plastic off of big money Flexi-Discs and the sweat from the brow of all night nuclear sex addicts. I gotta hand it to the second full length from this amp scorched mild-mannered crew: it at least doesnt come with a tan file folder containing sharpie pictures of cookies and flowers. Not too many lp in the tomb that include that.... I remember reading an interview with Lotus Dan saying how “he could write a dissertation on the genius of Chaos Destroy” - while something like that could land you at LEAST a free entrance semester to Lansing Community College: im sure the “song writing” would throw a Fluxus-like brain nugget freeze to the District Manager of GUITAR CENTER East Coast Mt. Vernon for a LOOONG TIME. If you dug up the body of JIMI HENDRIX to show him the LORD-OF-THE-RINGS-ON-LEPROSY GUITAR TONE diseasing this platter: hed more than likely think his grave-dirt ears were filled with cotton tin balls dipped in Trouma-radiation static and say “ask Clapton or that Frank dude from Lebenden Toten what he thinks...anyway this record is POGO and RETARDED...”..Thx Jimi. How this bucket-of screaming bolts screech buzz no vowel no word lp ended up on Olde English Spelling Bee is truly a brain-boiling mystery: but the world is an even more destroyed place with its mutant creation. I suggest you drill/add four more off-center holes to the label and cash in your SLURPEE POINTS for the next punk/hxc phenom: BALANCED CORE: punx will trade in the fuzz pedals and blown 8 speaker cabinets for a SUPER nice home-gym to sweat out and show off balance beams routines of the most political and intense nature EVER. Imagine the scene reports on that: alot more RAW thats for sure. YOU HEARD IT HEAR FIRST."  - INZANE JOHNNY OLSON.

"Well there is one band that never made it to this seasons Mad Max fashion show, or the new bar where all the freshly minted tattoo models who used to collect Brainbombs records or whatever now wash ashore to meet and screw. Yes indeed, punk hath long since been frozen in the ice age or by the cold wave, or whatever.  Punk is hippies is noisers is hip hop gothers. Maybe you were too busy collecting dirt on white jeans, and scrubbin off any trace of bourgeois privelege. Or maybe you were gossiping about whose Italian motor cycle boots were the harshest or whatever, or maybe when you were eBaying Skinny Puppy shirts and Totenkopf pins for the freezing weather to come, you missed out on things like the Music Not Music 7” by Chaos Destroy or their Stupid Night tape on Hierodule. Indeed maybe you thought you discovered the new Black Flag in a Midwest sine wave or in some noise-hop karaoke or maybe you just realized that you really wanted to tie girls up all along and fascist haircuts were the best compliment to yr imaginary order. EITHER WAY. Chaos Destroy hath since emerged, behind your back and laughing at you for how much you have grown!..... Yep, in some parts of the world, say like Southern Maryland, “music” began with the first notes and drum slams of the “Mental Disorder” EP and only flashed here and there since, on say a few flexi discs or 3rd degree bootleg cassettes, mostly of Japanese origin. You wont get a better invitation to a real barn-yard violent party than from Chaos Destroy. For in the land of Chaos Destroy, the sound track is Dust Noise and Gai and the milk and honey is cider and glue. Nope, youre not gonna get this from all the new records with black and white photos of dudes in fetish masks around magickal alters they got from Party City. Who the fuck would want to go to a party like that? Nope, this record is purely illogical snot from a gang who were fed battery acid out their mommas titty. The sound of synapses unfurling and language crumbling A.K.A. THE BEST PUNK BAND IN THE USA. Lest your brains get vacuumed out of yr ears now, poser!!!!" - Ravi Binning (Thought Broadcast, Hierodule Editions).

Artist: COHEN, ALICE
Title: Pink Keys
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The color pink corresponds metaphysically with the 3rd cosmic ray, symbolizing divine love and gentleness. The expression of the pink ray acts as a means of communication or interaction by radio, telephone, and telegraph and accesses the power to travel to inner planes. The keys unlock this ability, and the keyhole represents the portal we pass through.
Pink Keys is the 4th solo album from musician & visual artist Alice Cohen. Using the idea of etheric keyholes as portals, the 11 songs act as keys; unlocking visions of different eras, places and dimensions of consciousness. The album showcases Cohens versatility as a musician and songwriter by drawing from a wide range of influences including her roots in 70s Philly Soul/disco, 80s new wave, and cosmic electronic music. Pink Keys unfurls like a roll of old film, revealing scenes of mystical realms and utopian beachscapes, as well as tawdry street scenes, where neon hotel signs blink, and a magicians silks flutter.
The album was recorded over a span of nine months at her home in Brooklyn, and was mixed by Chris Moore (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Liars) at Headgear Studios. It features guest appearances from Autre Ne Veut and Danny Lane (Sofa Club) on backing vocals, Thor Harris (Swans/Smog/Shearwater) on percussion, and Sara Villard (K-Holes/Bezoar) on saxophone. The album features a new version of her instrumental "The Lacemakers" which was previously released on Daniel Lopatins (Oneohtrix Point Never/Games) 2010 compilation "Radio Scenic Glow Volume One". It was a key release in the new synth/hypnagogic pop underground with tracks by Julian Lynch, Autre Ne Veut, Stellar OM Source, OPN, Games, and Gatekeeper." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Walking Up Walls" is the second solo album from long-time musician and visual artist Alice Cohen. In contrast to her previous studio efforts these are raw home recordings with an intensely personal vibe. The sixteen short song-sketches alternate between densely layered shoegaze burners and shimmering, ethereal drifters. Exploring shadowy corners and using the musical equivalent of automatic writing - this was considered to be a sonic diary and not originally intended for release. For reference points think "Pink Opaque" era Cocteau Twins filtered through the early 90s lens of New Zealanders like Alastair Galbraith & Sandra Bell." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

"Australian Charles Curses music is one of the weirdest things Ive come across all year. On Rain in Skull, fragments of disjointed folk melodies move across a plain of wheezing chords, tape hiss, childrens voices, ambient washes, amp hum, electronic glitch and bits of buzz in general. The contrast between downcast guitar playing and the physical claustrophobia-inducing weight of sound is equally perplexing and intriguing. Its all presented in a decidedly lo-fi environment but the sound construction is anything but simple, as this is a complex sonic stew, unique in the true sense of the word. - Mats Gustafsson The Broken Face Limited pressing of 200 copies, with full-color spraymounted covers, re-worked and remastered issue of an obscure cd-r release from 2007." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Title: Odeon
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee

"Debut album by sci-fi oriented vintage synth duo who recently relocated to Los Angeles from Texas. Very outsider in that they were completely unaware of the current synth revival going on in the American underground (Emeralds, OPN, Caboladies, et al). D.A. began recording after being commissioned to make soundtracks for floatation tanks at a new age center in Texas. A chance meeting at a cafe led to the duo handing dozens of hours of these sessions to OESB. This album features some standouts from those early recordings. Their time in Los Angeles has been highlighted by a series of private rooftop concerts that overlook training grounds for the L.A.P.D. riot squads - the scrambling helicopters and practice gun battles below adding to the sinister dystopian vibe of their compositions. Limited numbered run of 400 copies, silkscreened by Monoroid on heavy duty chipboard jackets." - OESB.

So, you know every trilogy needs the curveball, and well, "Pipeline" has got to be uncle charlie. I found these videos in the basement of chateau terrace antwerp, but its super gritty kitty down there and i just grabbed three quickies. So I just put on your jams, and i am gunna watch Pipelines surf visions and scope your memories and sunbake. but man, Pipelines front flap video tape protection is busted, so i am gunna trade it with "You Got Mails" front flap, at this point i have to duck into my roomates zone and grip his RCA to Mini jack, but he has a sign posted that reads "STAY OUT OF MY ROOM". super funny, but later i am gunna take the sign, cross out "ROOM" and insert "DREAMS", put the sign on my wall, let somebody specials red orange lipstick make out with it, so that the guy knows hes a cutie and chazzis touched by freak. But so check it, i had to grip this RCA to Mini jack so that i can grip your memories and watch Pipeline. Hey man, for real though, member when we were on the beach in barcelona, before our car got towed, and we were cruising to beverly hills cop soundtrack, The Master and Carmen San Diego were in the back, we got to the beach jumped in the water drank beer ate coconuts and got massages while staring at boob people. at that moment, like when we snuck into the berlin film festival and danced Oceans 11, wow, my roomate just came home, hes wearing a long party wig and telling chazzi that he shagged all night long in a squat called "Duel 3", no joke; but yeah, i cannot, for the parrot in me, forget those times, to each his own future, So wait, back to Pipeline,, no wait, i got to tell you about this party last full moon, my roomate throws one every month when the moons light eclipses that of the rational minds hesitations, and well i had to dj, i wanted to, but i brought the parrot along, you met him right? he is always there when chazzy does the radio show or when monopoly needs vocals on a bamboo track, but neither of us invite this guy to the parties where those other dreams come true. its not cool, so i brought him along, you know his name right? Belafonte, so belafonte and i start dj-ing, you know that song from Police Academy called "I got to be somebody" by Jack Mack and a Hearttack? stars and ecstasy, for real, and jel doctor was getting me buckets of beer, cuz it was so hot and the air is full of short stuff, so i flip the records and repeatedly fend off requests for beat it and dirty diana, and all of a sudden Belafonte has drank all my beer and is smoking cigarettes, there are no tickets for free coldies, and i get pretty pissed, i kinda let Belafonte have it, you know, telling him that i cant take him anywhere, gnorm the gnome style, and hes like "alright, you go get some more beers", wow, your mirror jam just cruised in - memories... so, yeah, Belafonte is like "go, get some more beers and let me talk some of these girls into dancing with us and you will be calling me Most Valuable Vertabrae, birdtalk magazine style, so i get a bunch of coldies cuz tod god just came through with some bready poo, i come back to the dance floor, and well, i guess Belafonte burnt his head on his own cigarette, and this girl named Manon, but he understood as Emanuelle, like schnikies!! well his head is burnt and this black paint starts rubbing off his head, and i notice that there is paint on my neck, my face, and on her face, and her neck, and so on and so forth CSI style, and everybody kind of understands, the girls have taken this black paint and are marking it on their bodies like war paint initiation style, and they are petting Belafonte like hes the unattainable, i had no idea that this parrot was a model for Birdtalk Magazine back in its hey day, group therapy is affective... later i asked Manon for some affection, and she said "no, your feet are too dirty", on account of me wearing flippers to a dance party, and was like cool, its not even july 4th yet, but then, as i walked away she was like "Three O Clock, meet me at the Zoo!" no joke, Belafonte and me were like ah kuku ah kaka bamboo-for-two style... Stories are forever and i got to get back to PIPELINE, which is hitting the screen right now, and its definitely not about surfing and reminds charles of when Ebay and you stayed at the new york dantes microchip apartment and it was so hot and you guys passed out next to each other in your undies exclusively like siamese pipeline limbo style, if i had hoagie it would have been chazzi to chucky in like 4 doners and sixty seckies...

Title: Multitopia
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"New album from James Ferraro of The Skaters/Lamborghini Crystal et al, the first run ever presented under his own name. Multitopia is our reality system, James writes in the liner notes. A post 9/11 reality technology in between the frames of data reception. A cross wire into new head and necessary evolution upon the impact of the towers. It feels like a major work from James, the first fully-conceived album to go beyond his initial brain-fried 1980s nightmare culture documentation, reconciling both dystopian and utopian mindsets in a vision of Pan as Multitopia. Body modification, the blurring of sexual persona (via cracked images of James on the back with a modified pair of breasts chilling next to an arcade game) and cyborg intelligences are all recurrent tropes in James work but here he explodes them all, with some of the most aggressively nuanced keyboard and drum work of his entire career, kicking off with a full kit sound that sits somewhere between industrial steel drums and chaos pads then building to an evocative peak that then dissolves into wave after wave of fluxing keyboard drone and oddly looped vocal fragments. The gravity of the music is truly omnivorous, devouring drone, punk, new wave, industrial and minimal synth modes and spitting them back out as intensely detailed black and white visions of the future now. James somehow manages to interweave vacuous TV announcements and cheap anchor man quips alongside the lucid, microtone rich keyboard work, situating the whole deal in a virtual, godless netherworld with each track a further descent into hell. It is both beautiful and horrifying. A major work from James - no one is doing anything remotely like him. Highly recommended. -- David Keenan.

Limited to 425 copies in pro-printed duo-tone sleeves with a 5-page essay booklet." "The flashback repository is a storehouse of collective waste consciousness from all beings of the universe, i.e. all unfiltered myth & material of the human/alien/animal mind, laying dormant in a hidden dimension resembling a disposal area or transfer station somewhere within our spectral plane. A vast depot for all universal race memory that passes beyond our mortal earthly cognition and subconscious apparatus. This reposited latent substance is available to all organisms within our particular sphere, all beings earthy and paranormal. The recordings here represent the three main stages of unconscious withdrawal: Glimpse, Recurrence, and Manifestation - they are a blue print of sorts. There may be a possibility of the retrieval of materials - the recycling of this substance alongside the development of individual real-time understanding of eternal materials and impressions that are constantly escaping our sensory grip. The repository shows itself as what appears to be part of an undivided whole, a section manifested in our dimensional field through thin channels of emotion & vibration. These phenomena are the result of direct brain-repository contact, a glimpse into the infinite plenitude of energy and data housed by the repository. With each glimpse, each peek through these looking-glass channels, the mind gains a deeper insight into the potentials hibernating within the data-pool and the particular characteristics and movements of the repository. It is important to note that the usage of the word flashback connotes not only the re-collection or re-existence of memory and dream data from the past, but also the future. For instance one can flash forward just as easily and achieve the desired results." -- Outer Limits Inc.

"Kodama is the ongoing recording project of two well-known visual and sound artists - Hitoshi Kojo and Michael Northam - and this is their first widely available release as a duo. Recorded in various improbable locations whenever they crossed paths over the course of several years and then finally edited and assembled in a cluttered garage in the west side of Indianapolis. There is a decidedly more improvisational feel and crisp psychedelic aura to these recordings when compared to their other work and one can hear the influence of Ghedalia Tazartes in how the various recordings were stitched together. Limited pressing of 500 copies. Covers & insert printed on 2-color offset press with illustrations and design by Hitoshi Kojo." -Olde English Spelling Bee "We are the spirit of forest. Our howling has been offered to the many goddesses of the valleys. Teething our emptiness they, licking the stars, until white holes appear in our sky through them towards regenerative guides of the tonal-morphic omni-verses.   Using found objects to seduce voices from unlikely sources as well as traditional instruments of wind, wires and wood. Kodama weaves between emotional poetry and dynamic forces of noises. The recordings have a strong atmosphere of each location - the top of a mountain in Switzerland, a campground in Ohio, Lofoten Island in Norway, the arctic circle in Finland, Niagara Falls, etc. It includes a lot of the dirts of the raw recordings, but also incredibly beautiful moments such as the session with an owl in a Slovenian forest, an alpine summit singing meditation under the vast galaxy, and an encounter with the small people through strange ritual..." -Hitoshi Kojo

"Orange You Glad" is the debut full-length lp from Julian Lynch, following a string of self-released cd-rs and a recent split 7" with his childhood friend and frequent collaborator Matt Mondanile of Ducktails on the Underwater Peoples label. A talented multi-instrumentalist,  Julian has had a busy summer playing countless shows both solo and as a member of Predator Vision, Ducktails, and Real Estate offshoot Alex Bleeker & the Freaks. This album is comprised of 4-track home recordings made in his hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey and also in Madison, Wisconsin where he is a graduate student in ethnomusicology. His interest in Indian & South Asian music blossomed several years ago when he was living in Washington, D.C. and working for Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. This exposure to their vast library of world music has informed his output, and he blends instruments such as harmonium & tabla with guitar-rock instrumentation. Also of note is his use of circular breathing techniques on the clarinet - often a focal point during his meditative live shows." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

"Bruce McClure is well known on the international experimental film circuit for his unique projector performances that utilize film loops & modified 16mm projectors. But there is also an equally innovative sound element to his work and he has been embraced by the experimental music community as well. Bruce performed at the Chocolate Monk curated Colour Out of Space festival in 2008 and was chosen as an opening act for Throbbing Gristles reunion tour in the spring of 2009. During McClures performances the optical sound signals from each projector are fed through banks of guitar pedals, manipulated live, and played at extremely high volumes through the p.a. system. The different loops phase in and out of each other resulting in what could be described as a power electronics version of the early tape experiments of Steve Reich and Terry Riley, while sparser sections have an off-kilter minimal techno feel reminiscent of Plastikman and the early works of Thomas Brinkmann. This album features four excerpts from a professionally recorded performance in early 2009 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

The first widely available release of their song-oriented material was the Virgin Spectacle lp that came out on Black Dirt in 2008. That was followed by a 7" single on Soft Abuse in 2009. Si Faustine is their second album and, like Virgin Spectacle, was recorded at Jason Meaghers Black Dirt Studio.

Price: $19.00
"Third full-length release from this Boise, Idaho duo following two critically acclaimed efforts - the Sea Of Sand double-LP on OESB and She Hid Behind Her Veil CD on 20 Buck Spin. PussyGutt continue to develop their unique brand of doom soundtrack heaviness on Gathering Strengths, which features two side-long compositions titled Silence Within & Spirit Walker. Clarinets, violin, and cello are all prominent - lending this album even more of an avant-classical feel than previous efforts. The band calls this album an esoteric meditation on soul and nature and they cite Alvin Lucier, Henry Gorecki, and Arvo Part as primary influences for these recordings - along with the funeral doom of groups like Nortt, Catacombs, and Celestiial. Aquarius Records sums it up best in their review of the CD: This is some seriously sinister shit, sweeping and darkly cinematic, the soundtrack to the eventual collapse of the universe, the sound of dying stars, or of some long slumbering beast awakening after millennia... infused with a deep otherworldly beauty. Packaged in heavy duty covers silkscreened by Monoroid, limited and numbered edition of 550 copies, with glossy insert." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Title: Sea Of Sand
Format: Double LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"PussyGutt, noun, pronunciation: p u-sE-"guht ; etymology: Middle English, from Old English guttas, plural; probably akin to Old English gEotan to pour: (1) : BOWELS, ENTRAILS -- usually used in plural (2) : the basic visceral or emotional part of a person b : CATGUT. "Pussygut" is an old western slang term for the violin or fiddle - as the strings used to be made from cat intestines. "PussyGutt" is the duo of Blake Green and Brittany McConnell from Boise, Idaho. They have created a distinctive flavor of outsider "doom" with unique instrumentation that coincidentally features LOTS of violin (Brittany is a classically trained violinist), along with synths, gongs, bowed cymbals, crystal goblets, organ, drums, clay pots, forest sounds, ducks, various electronics, tons of feedback and humming bass-amp, and as if all thats not enough theres a secret weapon up their collective sleeve - the TRACTOR!!. The group holed up for nine months in their studio experimenting and composing the four side-long pieces for this double album. They are joined on Sea of Sand by Seattles Garek Druss (of A Story of Rats and Ear Venom) as collaborator/3rd member. Garek contributed his experiments with field recordings, repetition, electronics, and sound-collage to the proceedings. Also appearing is Chad Lefler of Seattle legends Old Cloud throwing down some heavy-duty amplifier worship. The music? Extremely HEAVY. Deeply WEIRD. A friend of the band coined the term "soundtrack aficianarcoleptics" to describe who this album will most appeal to and indeed the entire album is largely cinematic in its approach. The "riffs" & drums mostly stay hidden in their caves, venturing outside on a few brief excursions to catch some moonlight and provide puncuation to the drones and other assimilated madness. Limited edition of 550 hand-assembled copies. Packaged in heavy-duty gatefold sleeves with four spraymounted panels that were custom offset-printed on silver stock with two coats of black ink for extra darkness. Full size inserts printed on vellum paper. Specially mastered for maximum bass presence on vinyl by Mell Dettmer who has mastered projects for SUNN 0))/Boris, Earth, Asva, etc." - Olde English Spelling Bee

Title: Suburban Tours
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Rangers is Joe Knight. "Suburban Tours" is his debut vinyl release after a string of popular cassette albums last year - including "Low Cut Fades" on Not Not Fun. His sound has been referred to out in blogland as "elevator psyche" and "mirrorball funknagogic pop" - and thats not a bad start considering his music is often bass-driven with washes of synth and prog-psych guitar riding over the top. Unlike the extended side-long collages of his cassette releases, "Suburban Tours" is a collection of eleven concise "pop" songs that were written and recorded after moving to San Francisco from his native Texas. Not knowing anyone in this new locale, he describes the period after the move as being extremely lonely and plagued with near-constant rainfall. So he holed up and focused his attentions on recording a batch of songs that reflected on his suburban upbringing outside of Dallas and what he calls the "failed connections with nature" that exist in these suburban zones (fake lighting, cranked-up air conditioning, golf courses, and gated "communities" where everyone keeps to themselves). But despite the loneliness and melancholic themes there is a remarkable amount of color to his music. Like its the sound of what hed want to have playing on his headphones while riding a bike thru these neighborhoods -- the sound necessary to make these places seem lively and fun. Music blog Visitation Rites hits the nail on the head when saying "his music reflects a parallel fixation with the tape reel as a cutting board for the psychic trappings of middle class American youth."  Rangers is drawing from an entirely different set of musical influences than the rest of his peers - combining a passion for Manchesters Northern Soul sound with early 80s rock radio staples like Rush and The Police and the 70s prog-fusion of Weather Report. Plus hes got the chops to pull off this unlikely union -- in fact the cutting engineer for "Suburban Tours" was utterly baffled and commented that it sounded to him like a lost Steely Dan session recorded onto a mangled microcassette tape. Thats a good thing, right? Full color pro-printed covers and insert - also includes a download coupon for the mp3 version." - OESB.

This is a limited edition release of 350 copies - each cover is a unique color monoprint hand printed by Squim and spraymounted, back covers are a photocopy paste-on. " - OESB. more about the album Zephyrus - in Squims own words: lets see, recorded most of it in the spring of 2003... its constructed from a combination of field recordings and studio sessions where i would bounce the tracks, pan them, speed them up, slow them down and add filters and reverb. they were also run through a feedback loop in the mixer with various effects on a first-generation korg kaos pad. for instruments i played an electric guitar, a harmony acoustic guitar, a casio cz-101 and a casio sk1. for the field recordings I used a minidisk (that fell apart during the sessions) with a stereo mic... a fisher price tape recorder, and a hand held tape recorder... while doing the studio sessions i would also record what I was playing on the tape decks then later position them around the room for playback... i would ping pong these sounds back and forth several times. I was also experimenting with the feedback that occurred from layering the same sound over itself multiple times. during the recording i was reading a lot of weird sci-fi, horror and ghost stories. particularly Algernon Blackwood, Clark Ashton Smith, Arthur Machen, M.R. James and William Hope Hodgson. these influenced me to try and capture a sense of cosmic dread contrasted by everyday surroundings.

Subtitled: Musical Activism Under communism, 1975-1990. "Until the fall of the Soviet Union, popular music, and particularly rock music, was banned in Czechoslovakia. Hence, most of the bands were playing instrumental music to avoid any trouble with the government; however some of them were radically engaged against the censorship and communist regime and had to record live materials during forbidden concerts. The music was incredibly raw; a kind of free jazz rock with both psychedelic hints and punk flavors, added to screaming vocals. This set is the best way to enter the fascinating and innovative sound of the Czech counter-culture. This compilation includes DG 307, the Plastic People of the Universe, the Mch Band, Iva Bittova & Pavel Fajt, Pulnoc, Mikolas Chadima & The Extempore Band and Uz Jsme Doma." -Oloj.

"Olyvetty is an audio visual environment project that started in Berlin in 2006 when the musician Claudio Rocchetti and the visual artist Riccardo Benassi met. Olyvetty is the distortion of a symbol, the language prevailing over the content, the information over the production. With this new project, which was presented at Netmage 08 for the first time, the depths of noise and minimal-techno have been systematically plumbed. As all-encompassing as a hole , a double picture-disc vinyl was recorded manually. The two artists both live in Berlin , where they met and started their collaboration. What they have in common is their actual research on sound, which means a direct interaction with the object and its surface through the use of different supports, both durino production and live processing." - Digimag.

Long one of the rarest and whispered about underground Euro masterpieces, Woorden sees the poets chant, flip, sing in heavy F/X reverb heavens and work oracular magic ala Starmaiden herself while the music (courtesy of heads who also played on Group 1850s legendary Agemos Trip To Mother Earth) moves from radical free jazz through laminal voice constructs that confuse automating surrealism and screwed tape/sound works based around universal orgasms and the kind of percussion/vocal freak that is somewhere upwind of Junko and Yoko Ono. The harmonica and drums jams come over like a Cromagnon Kaoru Abe w/almost Sergius Golowin levels of eye-lolling universal worship.

Title: Obscure Tape Music of Japan Vol. 11: Radiated Falling
Format: CD
Label: Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $27.00
"Mamoru Fujieda is a Japanese post-minimalist composer, and Edition Omega Point releases some of his work from the early 80s. Both "Radiated Falling" (1980) and "The Art Of Fugue" (1981) are tape compositions in which sound materials of a prepared piano are electronically-processed and modulated in various ways. "Radiated Falling" is based on "Falling Scale No. 2" for piano (1975). The series of works entitled "Falling Scale" are composed almost entirely of descending scales as their structural elements. In these works, patterns are automatically produced by the difference in the number of scale tones or through the temporal discrepancy made when the tones descend. In "Falling Scale No. 2," a spiral line is successively transformed. The artist piled up the spiral line in several layers with the uneven timbres of the prepared piano producing sound materials for "Radiated Falling." The sound materials were then transformed to layered sonic textures through the ring modulator, the phase shifter, the harmonizer, and various delay processes. "The Art of Fugue" is based on a simple fugue in four voices from the first piece in The Art Of Fugue by J. S. Bach. The four voices were randomly cut into fragments, which were then reassembled to form four new voices. Each of the voices played by a differently prepared-piano was recorded on a multi-track recorder to produce sound materials for the piece. The sound materials for the prepared piano were then electronically-modulated and spatially processed. The randomly cut fragments of the fugue are interwoven at different tempos to make it "The Art Of Fugue" on the brink of collapse." -Edition Omega Point

"Exact repro" reissue of the 1975 LP, part of the "Background Music" series. The theme is African music and instruments.
"Piero Umiliani was an Italian composer of film scores, most famous for his song "Mah Nࠍah Nࢠof 1968, that was originally used for a Mondo documentary about Sweden (Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso) and became world-famous in 1977 when performed for The Muppet Show. The song was also an anthem of the Benny Hill show. Like many of his Italian colleagues at that time, he composed the scores for many exploitation films in the 1960s and 1970s, covering genres such as spaghetti western, Eurospy, Giallo, and soft sex films. Although not as widely regarded as, for example, Ennio Morricone or Riz Ortolani, he helped form the style of the typical European 60s/70s jazz-influenced film soundtrack that later experienced a revival in films like Kill Bill and Oceans Twelve. Piero Umiliani was born in Florence on July 17 1926. In 1959, charged by great Mario Monicelli to compose the OST of "I Soliti Ignoti" (Big Deal on Madonna Street) OST, he gains international recognition. The score featured Chet Baker on trumpet and it was the first experiment ever of Jazz Music on an Italian comedy movie. In 1961, he writes the music for "Smog" OST were again he featured Chet Baker artistry along with Helen Merrill shaping a masterpiece in Jazz OST history. Il 1970, the Master opened Liuto Edizioni Musicali, his own publishing company and Sound Work Shop recording studio. The first album of this new professional dimension was "Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso" (Sweden, Heaven and Hell") who contained the biggest hit of his career: "Mah Nࠍah Nࢠ(Muppet Show, Benny Hill Show, Red Skelton show). From Liuto catalogue came some of the greatest and richest moments in Italian film Music history. "La Ragazza dalla Pelle di Luna" (The Girl with the Skin of the Moon), "La Legge dei Gangsters" (The Gangsters" Law), Angeli Bianchi … Angeli Neri (White Angels … Black Angels) etc. Liuto catalogue also features incredible background music albums that delivers an amazing variety of sounds: from "To.Day"s Sound" and "News" to "Tra Scienza e Fantascienza" (Between Science and Science Fiction). In those great albums Piero Umiliani combined live Musicians with Electronic instruments. A very exhaustive manifesto of such works can be heard on "Musicaelettronica Vol. 1 & 2" anthology albums. In the past few years, the Timeless and Stainless sound of Piero Umiliani has strongly come back with the inclusion of his music in OSTs of movies like "Playing by Heart" (Sean Connery), "Thick as Thieves" (Alec Baldwin) and ultimately the star packed Hollywood production "Ocean"s 12" with great Crepuscolo Sul Mare track. Major Multinational brands have used his music for television advertising and the CD releases of his music were acclaimed worldwide. In his long career Piero Umiliani composed and recorded 190 soundtracks, 40 library albums and 35 TV title themes." - Discogs.

“Uuskylas other notable collaborations have been with free jazz legends Cecil Taylor and Bengt Fredrik Nordström. While he can go toe-to-toe with Brötzmann, he is a colourist here, not a pugilist. The music is a conversation, a colloquy between discriminating artists. Opening with subdued horn and sticks on cymbal, the pair sift through a sound that simmers, yet rarely boils. Uuskyla persuades the saxophonist without provoking him. As with truly great drummers, he can do more with a downsized kit, say more with a flick of the wrist and a hesitant tom-tom roll than other busy players.” - Mark Corroto, All About Jazz.

Title: A Crack to Beauty

Price: $22.00
"Peter Brötzmann and Swedish drummer Peeter Uuskyla, a veteran of saxophonist Bengt Nordströms groups, first recorded together in 1999 with bassist Peter Friis Nielsen, and have since met numerous times in trio and duo settings. Previous to A Crack to Beauty was a 2LP set: Red Cloud on Silver, on the young Swedish label Omlott, which has also released Uuskylas solo music as well as reissuing part of their previous duo disc, Born Broke, as a single LP titled Dead and Useless. Uuskyla is an incredibly limber drummer, economical and swinging in constant funky inversions that ratchet the saxophonist towards a jittery stratosphere. Thats not to say that Uuskyla cant embrace the calm, metallic ache that pervades Brötzmanns music, matching bitter pathos with brushy piles and accented silence. On the second movement of the title piece, unaccompanied tenor – the theme for Fred Hopkins that Brötzmann often references – appears midway through, before Uuskyla answers with darting rollicks. Its a plaintive respite amid sheer, rolling, grooving sound. Brötzmanns largesse is given a thick, expertly carved pathway here, and though hes found numerous long-term drummer partners over the decades, each bringing something different to the whole, this particular pairing is one that I find extremely rewarding."- Clifford Allen.

Curiousness and initiative is all. And attack. The attack mode. 6 Swedes attacking it all with a front of 3 sax players not holding back. Attacking the mystery of it all. 6 defined personalities and creative voices with feet and minds in jazz, improvised music and related experimental matters. Togetherness. A real unit of creativity. Of poetic beauty. Anna Högberg as a modern free jazz standard bearer keeping it all together – her rich alto sax leading the ensemble into layers of high octane outbursts and sensational melodic variations. Her tone being able to cut landscapes open, to melt your brain as we know it. Check the two tenor sax axes out! Elin Forkelid Larsson and Malin Wättring knows how to attack matters – how to structure solos and ensemble work with intense warmth and melodic beauty. Seldom have I heard such warm and rich sounding tenors in Scandinavia. The time is here. The attack attack! Drummer Anna Lund punctuating the flow… attacking it all. Laying fundaments of possibilities for the others. The attack attack! Pianist Lisa Ullén adding her thorny, but detailed phrases to the picture. The picture of the attack attack. And last but not least. The attack attack of deep sounding bass maestro Elsa Bergman. With an unusaul imagination of how to position her own language and bass lines into a collective of attacking free jazz. Freeing the jazz. Attacking the jazz. The attack attack!” - Mats Gustafsson.

Price: $24.00
Edition of 500. Neutral is the duo of Dan Johansson (Sewer Election, etc) and Sofie Herner (Enhet För Fri Musik). “In a sweaty art space open to no one and just a stones throw away from the Utmarken venue where it all in more than one way kind of began, Neutral did their first show in front of maybe 25 people. The free jazz drummer Peeter Uuskyla opened the night with a shimmering set of absurd, life-elevating bliss and Neutral just ripped it all apart. There and then sort of Gothenburg underground ground zero, or more like ground nothing. New beginnings and grey waves of something very exciting. Its been close to 2 years now but its one of those nights that I will remember forever. Since then Ive seen Neutral on several occasions and its always been a pleasure, always refining their craft but at the same time shredding the improvement to tiny pieces with every heartbeat. Its like they are taking one step forward and two steps back with every minute they produce, and in a very rare and weird way getting better and more interesting doing so. The untitled second album, following up Grå Våg Gamlestaden (Omlott, 2014), does just that. It takes everything that made the debut album so special and puts it in a rusty meat grinder, taking a piss on the deconstructed mess and puts it together again, piece by piece. The formula might be almost identical, but the final outcome is different. Where the debut was immediate and fairly easy to resonate with, the new album is almost impossible to penetrate at first. You can sense that theres something resembling a ragged beauty somewhere, but its hard to reach. Its like Neutral deliberately placed various obstacles along the way, fucking with everyones expectations and rightfully so. Still, after each time spent with those 35 minutes things will slowly unfold themselves and there you are, pleased with one of the most fully realized and beautiful recordings to ever come from the shitfaced Utmarken camp of misunderstood geniuses. Yeah, I actually heard them all. Neutral manages to connect the dots between everything from Chrome and Siltbreezian gold from the 90s to the more experimental sides of Dome, while throwing in some tape work that could only originate from Gothenburg and brutish guitar playing bringing JFK, Skullflower and maybe even rock-era Ramleh to mind at times. Lets not forget the mysterious field recordings scattered along the way, and Sofie Herners dry, talked vocals, leading at least this listener to the realization that theres no end to this fucking winter.” - Matthias Andersson.

Price: $23.00
"One of the first groups to dig deep into the ethnic musics of the world, Spjärnsvallet was formed in the early seventies when Bengt Berger who had studied music in India (and was on his way to Ghana), met Christer Bothén who had learned in Mali (and was on his way to Morocco) for a long collaboration with Don Cherry beginning 1973 in New York where INNOCENCE is recorded. This was the starting point for the group with likeminded associates Nikke Ström and Kjell Westling. In 1975 we recorded the minor classic album Spjärnsvallet together. Some material that was not released then or was shortened to fit the LP format make up the main part of this album plus a recording the three of us did just now: AGAIN – in remembrance of deceased multi instrument genius Kjell Westling, where we improvise around a couple of the tunes we used to play 40 years back." - Spjärnsvallet.

“Archaic Sounds, Natural Music & Joy”
“This album is about a way to simply make raw, basic, natural and joyful music. This album is also about and with the Swedish saxophone visionary Bengt Nordström, ”Frippe” who first of all talked to me about making and playing natural music. The legend of Bengt Nordström (1936-2000) tells how he picked up the clarinet and the saxophone after being deeply touched by the music of Tony Scott and Sonny Rollins.
Then meeting Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler changed his musical vision; so much that he no longer fit into the contemporary jazz scene in Sweden. Frippe spoke of a totally spontaneous, improvised, creative music at a time when everyone else was trying to master
bebop. Because of this, he was left to play alone for many years. He became ”the outsider”; that nobody wanted, or had the nerve to play with. During intermissions at clubs, like the ”Golden
Circle”, he took the opportunity to play small solo concerts and recorded himself. He released small editions of his work on his own ”Bird Notes” label. Although the recordings were mostly solo sax, on rare occasions, he was joined by Don Cherry on trumpet, bassist
Sven Hessle or bassist Björn Alke who would show up to play duets with him. His collection had two releases: Albert Aylers; ”Something Different!!!!!!” (BNLP 1) and Bengt Nordströms
own; ”Natural Music” (BNLP 2). The other recordings were not numbered or catalouged but were released as LPs and EPs. It was not until the mid 70s that Bengt Frippe Nordström formed his own band, the ”Miljövårdsverket”. After some years of trying different constellations, the musicians, bassist Björn Alke (1938-2000), violin player Lars Svanteson (b. 1949) and myself, drummer Peeter Uuskyla (b. 1951), became established as a ”working unit” and cut the albums ”Nows The Frippe Time” (Dragon Records DRLP 82), ”The Environmental Control Office” (Ayler Records aylCD-021/022), ”Frippes Protocol” (aylDL-086) and ”Creative
Addition” (aylDL-116). This album is also about me talking to my children Nema (b. 1993) and Simon Cecil (b. 1990) to continue making natural music with your own voice, body and whatever music instruments you use. This album is recreated, created and recorded 2015, 7″ vinyl side A recorded 1967 and side B recorded 1987. Hope you like it!” - Peeter Uuskyla.

Price: $27.00
"Bruce Haacks The Electric Lucifer is rightly considered one of the masterworks of 20th century electronic music. Originally recorded in 1968 and 1969 (and released in 1970) it is an album both unique in conception and superb in realization. An eminently listenable work where pop-psychedelia and Moog/musique-concrete sounds coalesce around Haacks central metaphysical concept of Powerlove, a force so powerful that it could end war and unify humankind. Acclaimed upon its original release (one of Rolling Stones favorite albums of 1970 among many citations) yet unavailable on LP for over four decades, The Electric Lucifer is reissued here officially for the very first time on LP. Remastered and restored from the lost original master tapes discovered in the Columbia vault. The Electric Lucifer is your gateway to the profound yet playful universe of Bruce Haack, a far-out place where flower-power and inner-space electronics collide. Limited edition of 500 copies in deluxe replica packaging on 180 gram vinyl." - Omni.

Artist: KUBIN, FELIX
Title: Zemsta Plutona
Format: CD
Label: Omni Recording Company
Country: Australia
Price: $22.00
"Felix Kubin, the nuclear powered horseman of apocalyptic dance music, is back. The manic producer and agitator brings forth a new solo album. Zemsta Plutona strikes through our living room like lightning, leaving scorch marks and enlightened souls. His inciting machinations have multiplied over the past years and there seems to be no end in sight. A master of absurd self-staging, his work blurs the boundaries between sci-fi pop, conceptual chamber music, radio play, theatre and film. He prefers futuristic costumes and experimental haircuts, cultivating a fashion style somewhere between Kim Jong-il and Captain Kirk. But most of all Kubin is a brilliant composer and an errant arranger. The opening track, "Lightning Strikes" sets the path: The rhythm from a distorted human beatbox, enervating synth lines and an operatic chorus result in a Kubin hit par excellence. "Atomium Vertigo" opens the door to a magnetic groove to which Nicolas Ekla (Lem, Les Brochettes) murmurs foggy French negations. "Nachts im Park" (At Night in the Park), on the other hand, sounds like a soundtrack to a modernEdgar Wallace thriller: retro-futuristic computer music, the opposite of easy listening, but flirting with it. Whichever piece attracts you on this timeless album -- the snappy "Flies Without Memory" or the ghostly "Restez en Ligne" -- Kubin forever sounds like himself and always sounds new. An example of something new here is the inclusion of amplified acoustic instruments like drums, trumpet, trombone or laundry rack. In "Piscine Résonnez!" synth-sequences and fanfare sounds wander around while angry French girls yell something about manta rays in the swimming pool. Kubin dedicates himself to the great theme of feeling controlled remotely in "Der Kaiser ist Gestorben" (The Kaiser is Dead). Here, our life is steered by an invisible hand; a commemoration on existentialism and the topos of urban alienation. Mixed by Tobias Levin." - ZickZack.

Artist: STRAPPING FIELDHANDS
Title: The Third Kingdom
Format: CD
Label: Omphalos
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Just as quizzically as they disappeared off the face of hip indie rockers playlists, Phillys Strapping Fieldhands have resurfaced to wow the listening public with another outrageously good release. Unless you had direct deposit allocated to an account at your local record store in the mid-90s, you probably passed right over this eccentric combination of British skiffle, sobering sincerity and occasional treks into the world of unconventional noise-rock. With previous releases on Shangri-La, Siltbreeze and their own Omphalos Records, the Fieldhands have consistently received praise from critics, while invariably sneaking beneath the publics musical radar. Its been almost ten years since the bands first release; perhaps this latest batch of remarkable ditties will finally score the Fieldhands some well-deserved adoration from the public.nIf youre in need of immediate justification for these seemingly outlandish claims about the Fieldhands, try out "Panic in the Commune". Full of chiming guitar notes, an undercurrent of swirling psychedelia-blessed chords and a charming multi-voiced chorus, "Commune" epitomizes the bands unusual style, sinewy vocal melodies and curious topical content while delivering an unmistakably catchy tune. Digging a bit deeper into The Third Kingdom, both the warm strumming and an organ-heavy melody on "Heave Ho" and the melancholic "Eager Girl" have the familiar faux-British quality that has been a Fieldhands staple since the bands first release. "Cold Rock Chameleon" acknowledges New Zealand icons like The Clean and Straightjacket Fits, with dense, dreamy layers surrounding a center of warm pop goodness. Prepare for a mind-altering, head-tilting aural experience, as The Fieldhands strike several curious chords -- both figurative and literal. Just as appealing as the bands retro-outfitted melodies is its penchant for messing things up with a bit of oddball noise. Were not talking Merzbow-inflicted ear damage, but slices of tuneful, drug-tested meandering (check out "Dustbin Joe") that bring to mind such varied influences as The Dead C and The Pogues. "Folk is Tough" teeters on the edge of musical chaos, fuzzy and almost jig-like as it rattles through puzzling rhythms and inebriated vox. Somehow its all wrapped up into one glorious musical offering, baring a new range of emotions and styles with each new track. To peg The Strapping Fieldhands with a generic label such as "indie-rock" would be a gross mistake indeed. The band exhibits a fondness for unusual timings and melodies, and runs through a broad spectrum of influences and peculiarities, none of them anchored in stereotypical indie sounds. However, The Third Kingdoms greatest strength is its consistency. The band hasnt wandered too far from its original style, honing its songwriting skills rather than expanding its sonic universe, and in the process creating its best batch of tunes to date. By God, there is a bit of innovation left in the rock n roll world!" - Andrew Migilow.

“Ignored by the masses, loved by the underground, never simple, always unique: since its first period of activity in the mid 1980s, Belgian band Aroma di Amore has been revered as the cult group of Flanders. In 2009 the band made its comeback, performing several gigs in Belgium and releasing Ongehoord (OS 011LP), an LP of unreleased and rare tracks, and Samizdat (OS 020CD), a CD of new songs. Carried by a deep bass, typically cold new wave drums, biting guitar riffs, and a shamanic voice, they make music thats both subtle and raw, with the occasional flavor of absolute madness. Over the years, bass players, a saxophonist, and lots of other musicians have come and gone, but the core of the band consists of Fred Angst on guitar, Lo Meulen on bass, and Elvis Peeters on vocals. The double CD Onverdeeld is an anthology of more than a quarter-century of musical output, containing almost all of the tracks that the band released on LP, as well as a few live tracks and four previously unreleased songs. Includes a 16-page booklet with pictures by Eric Didden, an extensive biography, and the extraordinary lyrics of Elvis Peeters. Mastered by Gerry Vergult (aka Fred Angst).

“After the re-discovery of Tranquil Eyes 1985 Walkscassette in 2012 (OS 015LP) and the 2014 release ofFrozen Ducks work (OS 023LP), OnderStroom Records presents another dazzling project from Lex Grauwen. Cheiron is a collaboration between Grauwen, who plays all the instruments and produced all the music, and José van Waveren, who sings distinctively. Land After Life aims for the dancefloor with its high-energy minimal synth and electro stylings. In the mid-80s Lex Grauwen was asked to participate in the Pas de Deux LP (1985), a legendary new wave compilation album featuring Bene Gesserit, Algebra Suicide, and Psyclones. Grauwen asked his high school sweetheart, José van Waveren, to join up for a few songs. "Land After Life" was chosen for the compilation and, years later, took on a life of its own on the internet. "Serenity World," recorded during the same sessions, is equally spellbinding and beautiful. It was released in an edited mix on the 1987 Lembrasse compilation cassette (Top Tape). The third song recorded, "Finally Free Four," is a previously unreleased solo composition by van Waveren. Grauwen and van Waveren had been making music before, though, and one of those older tracks is "No Trace," from 81-82. Shortly after Pas de Deux, they tried to record some more tracks, but the demos were never really finished. A while later Grauwen asked Paul Oosterbaan of Tranquil Eyes and Ruud Braumullerof Beatnik Love Affair to help finish these tracks. The results are "Your Life, Your Body" (also a van Waveren solo piece) and "Ping Pong," the last recorded track. In the 2000s, van Waveren began performing as singer-songwriter devoted to French chanson.” - Onderstroom.

De Brassers were a local mixture of the Sex Pistols (in the lowest gear) and Joy Division (they always performed a cover version of Joy Divisions "Shadowplay"), combining a criticism of bureaucracy and politics with experiences of psychological and existential tensions. The doomed sound they produced tells a lot about the dark atmosphere of the late 70s and early 80s: the fear of atomic bombs, Cold War pessimism, police violence against squatters, the first cases of AIDS, and the grim years of Reagan & Thatcher.

Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"Frozen Ducks were the two brothers Hans Grauwen and Lex Grauwen. The short-lived duo had Hans behind the mic and playing synths, Lex also played synths and did the production of the tracks. The nine electro/new wave songs sound a lot like Tranquil Eyes 1985 Walks album and this release can in many ways be seen as the accompanying release to that album. The line-up of the bands is almost the same, the bass and the overall production is just as deep, rich and poignant; only this time the drum patterns are more apparent and the sphere is much darker with lyrics about a troubling childhood and a vague view on what the future will bring. During the mid-80s Hans & Lex produced 15 tracks of early electro/new wave songs of which only two ever got released. "Beginnings" and "Lost Freedom" were released on the legendary Dutch experimental compilations Contactdisc 4 and Contactdisc 5, which included bands such as X-Ray Pop, Twilight Ritual, Tranquil Eyes, Kapotte Muziek, and De Fabriek. All other tracks on this album are previously-unreleased and come from the vaults of Lex Grauwen. With much dedication and joy, these tracks have been unearthed and compiled into this posthumous album. A true pleasure to listen to and a must for every minimal synth, new wave and lo-fi Italo disco fan. Some words by Lex Grauwen: "Even though Hans and me had been recording since 1970, things didnt really start out until 1980, when the Korg MS-20 synthesizer entered my living-room. A living-room that would soon turn into a studio. A MFB 501 drum-machine was added, an Electro Harmonix Instant Replay sampler, bucket-brigade delays, chorus, flanger, phaser, reel-to-reel recorders, cassette-decks, a Portastudio, and of course, guitars, bass, sitar, and percussion. The tracks made were usually not destined to be Tranquil Eyes, Frozen Ducks or Cheiron. This usually depended on who came by and who was in the mood to sing. Hans was a steady visitor, who lived close by, so, he did a lot of the singing. I played all the instruments, often helped by friends such as Ruud Braumuller, and did the production. Not everything Hans and I recorded fell into the line of Frozen Ducks. We did different styles as well. Hans could do a fine falsetto, too, so we recorded some tracks leaning more towards 1960s psychedelia. That project was named Lemon Dust and is all unreleased. So, throughout the 80s and 90s we kept buying lots of equipment, recorded and re-recorded our material, until it slowly came to a halt. Of course there had been the Contactdisc releases, but there never was any feedback, no reviews, nothing." Frozen Ducks was never a band as such, they never performed. Hans was not the kind of guy to be on stage. Way too shy, introverted, troubled and burdened. The lyrics say it all." - Onderstroom.

"Much-needed re-issue of this privately released 2007 album. Martial Canterels Sean McBride is the progenitor of American cold synth sounds of the 21st century. He began under the moniker Moravagine before he started releasing limited edition cassettes and playing Brooklyn dives as Martial Canterel in 2002. Since then, McBrides bleak intellectual exercises in the dark and danceable have flooded North America and Europe through the frosty fairwaves paved by Pieter Schoolwerths Wierd Records. With an inimitable minimal style merging bright, urgent melodies ornamented and punctuated by the noises of industry and McBrides sonorous, stern vocals, Martial Canterels earlier releases (You Today, Refuge Underneath) have garnered both critical acclaim and a rapidly growing rabid fan base. Sean is also one-half of the duo Xeno & Oaklander together with Miss Liz Wendelbo. The album Austerton consists of some of his earliest work recorded in 2003. The ten minimal synth songs on the LP are reminiscent of music by bands like Dark Day, Snowy Red, A Blaze Colour, League Of Nations, etc. Through the collision of a uniquely humanistic means of production via live analog synthcraft expertly paired with vocals and lyrics that reflect the pitfalls and pleasures of our age, Martial Canterel provides a visceral kick best felt on the dancefloor, amidst a flurry of flesh in motion." - Austerton.

"Mensen Blaffen was a six-piece band from Aalst, Belgium that excelled at playing postmodern funk and weird rock. Its members were Jan van den Brande (guitar, bass), Mario Segers (bass, synthesizer, percussion), Sylvie Honnay (vocals), Steven Lorie (drums), Ludo Vervliet (bass), Eddy Valk (saxophone), and Pascal Baeyens (guitar, first record). When asked how they would describe their work, the members said, "hardcore-chanson, mixed with ugliness, sweetness and dirty worms in a rotten horse together." The band formed in the early 1980s and participated in the Belgian competition Humos Rock Rally in 1984, where they reached the finals. Mensen Blaffens debut self-titled mini-LP, produced by Jo Bogaert (producer of Technotronics Pump Up the Jam), came out the same year and introduced the bands distinct sound, characterized by a certain playfulness and naiveté, with Dutch lyrics full of sound associations and exclamation marks, Honnays cooing voice, and funky sax and percussion that recalled Defunkt or Lavvi Ebbel. John Peel took notice of the band and gave them some airtime, and they landed supporting gigs for Virgin Prunes, Blurt, and Anne Clark. For their second release, 1986s DUn Seul Coup, Mensen Blaffen enlisted Fred A aka Gerry Vergult (Aroma di Amore) as producer. The mini-LP gave space to Honnays surreal lyrics, sung in French and Dutch, and included such standouts as the swinging "Hippopotame" and the sultry "Kleine Vamp," earning it an enthusiastic review from the venerable Dutch magazine OOR. That same year, the band released Krengen, an EP of rougher and more danceable material. After a slew of performances in Belgium, Holland, Germany, and France, Mensen Blaffen released its sole full-length album, Raven, in 1988. The product of intensive rehearsals, its a tremendous album full of energizing guitar songs with a dark edge, and features production by Theo van Eenbergen (Nasmak, Rollins Band). Sadly enough, Mensen Blaffens final statement didnt receive the attention it deserved. Now, after more than 25 years, OnderStroom Records gets Mensen Blaffens work out there again, in the form of this 80-minute compilation CD.

“Palais des Bauzards pursued an industrial and electronic variant of the sound that swept into vogue during the first half of the 80s. This compilation digs into the original material provided by the band and offers an amazing selection from start to finish. The sometimes rudimentary though gripping tracks on the first side are emblematic of their early period; for example, "Money" is driven by a screeching rhythm box, distant guitar lines, and a nonchalant voice.Cabaret Voltaire comes to mind. Theyre not afraid to experiment and to explore new horizons ("Lies"). The second side shows a more developed dark wave sound with "In the Grassfield" and "Knowing Too Much," both produced by legendary Belgian producerLudo Camberlin. There are even two dark goth-rock stompers hidden in the selection -- "My Life Is a Sin" and "Eat Out of My Hands." Overall its a broad selection of tracks that show the capability of the band to do something different with the new wave genre. The group was formed in 1983 in the Belgian city of Leuven by Danny Jacobs, Dirk wan Regenmortel, Chris Serré, Frank de Wit, andRudy Stuyckens. In 1983 they released two tracks on the Mask Promotion LP alongside Front 242. In the three following years many of their home-recorded tracks were published on a bunch of cassette labels. Since the beginning of the 21st century, many Palais des Bauzards tracks can be found on playlists around Europe and the USA and are being re-released on compilations, includingUnderground Wave Volume 4 (Walhalla Records, 2014) and Distant Waves (Dead Wax Records, 2014).” - Onderstroom.

Artist: SNOWY RED
Title: The Ultimate Edition 1980-1984
Format: 5 CD Box
Label: Onderstroom
Country: Belgium
Price: $65.00
"2011 release. Tremendous 5CD box by one of the most highly-acclaimed minimal synth bands active during the 1980s. The Snowy Red project started as a one-man band by Micky Mike. With a few synthesizers, a 12/2 mixing desk and a two-track reel-to-reel recorder he created repetitive synth masterpieces in the vein of Suicide and Polyphonic Size. These black synthetic pearls were spread over two albums: the self-titled Snowy Red (1981) and The Right to Die (1982) -- both are included in this box, officially remastered, and with original artwork. When the project was nearing completion, Michael Thiel (the son of Micky) made the discovery we were all waiting for, demo tracks of the first album. Besides proto-versions of "Blood Blood Blood," "Maud Is Dead," and Deep Desire," the main discovery is the 22-minute version of "The Wild Boys": an electronic trip you do not want to end. And theres more. Underground club hit "Breakdown" was released throughout the 80s in several different versions. Included in this box are the 12" and the 7" versions, both featuring the beautiful Carol on vocals. Further down the line on disc four we find Micky Mikes solo version of the track which was first released on Walking After Midnight in 1980. This is an absolutely raw and honest version. Also included are the unreleased tracks "Lies in Your Eyes" and "Red Skies," both excellent additions to the Snowy Red puzzle, and three stripped-down demos made for the Vision album. Very different from the first two releases, the Vision album was Mickys most ambitious effort. With the help of friends (Niki Mono) and the addition of saxophone and Eastern instruments, Micky Mikes talent as a producer was pushed to the limit. Vision conceptualized a total spectacle: there was a video to accompany the album and the live shows were truly theatrical. But even without these visionary additions, the album has a certain grandeur, almost like an electronic opera. In short, this 5CD box is essential stuff for anyone interested in the history of the Belgian minimal synth-god Snowy Red. Digipak CDs are housed in a glossy cardboard box. Includes a 24-page booklet with unseen photos and extensive background information." - Onderstroom.

Price: $24.00
"While the band has gone through a few lineup changes, Ssleeping Desiress has essentially remained the brainchild of San Francisco-based Gabriel Ramos, who is the sole member on this, the bands debut album. Following the great 2012 A Voice/Sister 7", this album runs along the boundaries between minimal synth, coldwave, and electro with lyrical themes of gentrification, coping with death, artistic drive and confusion, and the ephemeral nature of relationships. Ssleeping Desiress have appeared on numerous new new wave compilations since 2011, but this album takes the project to the next level, kicking off with an echoing voice over repetitive drums and outbursts of synths and guitars before slowly moving toward a more darkwave sound on the second half of the album. Ramos started making solo recordings while living in Portland, Oregon, around 2005. The DIY drive of the city and the live shows that he hosted at his house, often of friends bands from San Francisco, led to a growing fascination and voracious consumption of music. Ramos recalls, "I can really trace it to the first time Spector Protector played at my house and getting a tape afterwards from one of the two members, Eric Davis. That and being freshly exposed to groups like Suicide and Arthur Russell was very inspirational to begin recording music on my own, though it is something I had done fairly aimlessly since high school. I make an effort and try and change my process as much as I can (usually through collaboration) and vary the instrumentation. I try and incorporate a late 70s punk vibe, a marriage of dub and krautrock repetition and cavernous space. Definitely not always successful but that is what is usually running through my head when I create music for this band." Mastered by Michael Romanowski. Graphic design by Luis Mendoza.

Price: $24.00
"Much needed re-issue of this fantastic and unfortunately overlooked 1985 tape on Stichting Stopcontact. Lex Grauwen and Paul Oosterbaan had worked together for about eight years before they formed Tranquil Eyes in 1982. They decided to turn their back on stage performances and started experimenting with home-taping. Using an array of electronics, Tranquil Eyes recorded a great amount of songs and made a fine selection on Walks, their first and only release. The wonderfully-produced tracks sound a lot like A Blaze Colour and Snowy Red. Minimal synth at its best with a great feel for song structures, melody and occasionally aiming at the dancefloor. If youre at all attuned to the cassette culture of the early years, dont miss out on this one. Lex Grauwen was also in, and produced Frozen Ducks and Cheiron. Lex Grauwen (instruments, vocals and production); Paul Oosterbaan (instruments and vocals). Includes a booklet with song texts, photos, credits and liner-notes. Remastered by Ruud Braumuller. Artwork re-designed by Pieter Eykens. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies." - Onderstroom.

"First vinyl release of the first ever recordings by Belgian minimal synth masters Twilight Ritual. Originally released in 1982 in a tiny cassette edition, this album has not been heard by many people. The Ritual includes some of their best work, from mysterious dark synthpop songs ("Elegy") to club music ("Webb Men") and the epic 14-minute track "Up to Now." Twilight Ritual is the main project of Geert Coppens and Peter Bonne. During the early 80s they were both involved in many other bands, including Autumn and Linear Movement (both later reissued by Minimal Wave), but Twilight Ritual is by far the most inspired project. The spirit of the band lingers on beneath the work of Autumn through A Split-Second and stands beside the best tracks of bands such as Oppenheimer Analysis and League of Nations. Instruments and production by Peter Bonne. Lyrics and artwork by Geert Coppens. Remastered at Equus. Includes double-sided insert with lyrics and photos." - Onderstroom.

"The latest from Dark Sunny Land, Emanations for a Returning, will be available from One Hand Records hq in August. Over the last decade Bostons Steve Painter, under various monikers, has quietly released a number of killer CDs on Gulcher that seemed to earn him high praise from the handful who heard them. Most enthusiastically touted by the great, long-running zine turned blog, Black to Comm, check out the fine interview with Steve Painter that appeared there. Emanations is four tracks of Painters uneasy, claustrophobic feedback and drone that are reminiscent of trailblazers Kluster and Taj Mahal Travelers. Painter calls his music “cranky ambient.” Recorded in the shadows of Fenway Park, this is an excellent late-night comedown listen. Emanations is the first Dark Sunny Land release to appear on vinyl. Silk screened covers. Edition of 150 copies." - One Hand.

"Do try and search out the delightful and highly useful EMANATIONS FOR A RETURNING by Bostons Dark Sunny Land. Released on One Hand Records, this limited vinyl edition shakes and sparkles with that same shimmer as Japanese Gagaku ceremonies, all Timeless and Hazy and Almost and Nearly. Its probably those singing bowls that throw time off so, or perhaps the household objects, or maybe even the subtly rendered Theremin. Indeed, Im loathe to compare this vinyl LP with anything too specific, for it is entirely itself. Yes, the music of Dark Sunny Land occupies mostly a peculiar heat haze hinterland, a semi-permanent perch that always appears to threaten a massive increase in volume, but never does. But EMANATIONS FOR A RETURNING is a fine LP housed in a delightful art sleeve, and it dont half endlessly repeat well, Motherfuckers." - Julian Cope.

“Bostons great loner cosmic tones pusher turns in 4 new tracks of his signature drift. This is beautiful, melt-into-your-couch stuff. Dark Sunny Land is Steve Painters 3rd album as DSL, and continues his pursuit of the sound from a yet to be discovered planet. Painter cites Sun Ra, Kluster, and Basinski as influences, and you hear them all here, but at this point--Painter is now a sexagenarian--he has developed a sound that is unmistakably his own. The albums closer, "Kangaroo Daydream," is the most gorgeous piece he has produced yet. It finishes too soon, not so much ending as vaporizing and ascending into the stratosphere.” - One Hand.

From K/Cluster-esque cranks to warm encapsulating sound that you can burrow yourself into, DARK SUNNY LAND weaves itself into your very own nerve-endings with a music that, once you spin the thing repeatedly for a few hours, makes you wanna stand up and holler that this was made for you and you alone!

"One Hand is excited to release the second album from Weasel Walter & Chris Pitsiokos. "Drawn and Quartered" expands on where they left off with 2012s fantastic "Unplanned Obsolescence." It reflects the time in between spent non-stop gigging together and in literally countless configurations with others. Pitsiokos is evolving quickly as a player with a wide range of powers. He has established himself as one of the top sax wielders on the NYC free music map and hes not even 25. Weasel needs no introduction. "Drawn and Quartered" was recorded over two days in Spring 2014. Its high energy splatter-- its spastic, occasionally blown out, but the playing consistently tiptoes the line between barely contained and going off the rails. At times the duo recall the playful side of, say, Peter Brotzmann/Shoji Hanos duo recordings, at others the unpredictable ride of an AACM project. The glorious sound of sax and drums.

Title: Oh Be Joyful

Label: One Kind Favor
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This is the second full length LP by steel string guitarist Daniel Bachman (who formerly recorded and performed as Sacred Harp). Though young in years, he plays with a technical facility and emotional depth equal to that of the greatest fingerstylists. His discography is already full of strong releases, but this new recording is the first Ive heard to fully capture the intimate beauty that many have witnessed in his live acoustic performances across the country. Authenticity has been a issue that has plagued folk music for much of the 20th century and these days anyone can pick up a style that was previously known only to a few mountainfolk. While Bachmans playing is surely reminiscent of the spiritual searching sound of Robbie Basho, and indeed the spectre of Fahey looms large, he is no Johnny-come-lately. The distinct sound you will hear on this record is inspired by the traditions and lore unique to Fredericksberg, Virginia, also the hometown of Jack Rose (may God watch over his soul).

"Often considered the Holy Grail of "real people" records, Kenneth Higneys "Attic Demonstration" was never actually intended to be an official release. It was recorded in New York City by Higney and his accompanist Gordon Gaines (R.I.P.) as a vehicle with which to sell Higneys songs to other artists and was only pressed to vinyl in 1976 when he grew tired of duplicating cassette tapes. Apparently the Jandekian dissonance of the "A. Demo." sound was an unintended by-product of the one take demo sessions. Be that as it may, "Attic Demonstration" is a strange sonic world all of its own. It is neither too weird to be unappealing to "regular" music listeners nor is it one of those "discoveries" that leaves you wondering what all the hype was about. Acoustic guitar ballads of nearly atonal desolation mix readily with rock n roll numbers featuring hiccuping drums and alien sounding electric guitar. Hingeys vocals are by turns sneering and mournful as he sings about lost love and the desire for fame all filtered through his uniquely bent worldview. Although a few ads were placed for the record in The Village Voice and The Aquarian, the fame that Higney sought eluded him (a semi-positive review in Trouser Press notwithstanding). That is, until the album was discovered and distributed by record dealer Paul Major. "Attic Demonstration" has been featured in the Acid Archives and copies of the original LP have soared in price over the years, but you no longer have to pay $100, $200 or even $300 to obtain a copy of this monumental album on vinyl.

"Official reissue of Kenneth Higneys 1980 private press 45rpm single. Compared to "Attic Demonstration," the recordings are much more polished. Synthesizers and "pop sensibility" have found their way into Higneys music, and the more I listen to it, Im convinced this could have somehow taken the world by storm in some sort of post-No Wave context. Dont get me wrong, this is still incredibly strange stuff, with Higney triple tracking his vocals in different registers. "Funky Kinky" is an especially unique come-on to a lady and "I Wanna Be The King" is an "ode or tribute, whatever youd like to call it, to the NYC punk scene of Maxs Kansas City and CBGBs in general and Johnny Thunders (the "King") in particular," according to the artist. "I wanna be the king, I wanna play guitar. I hate the sissy music of John Den-var." Higney goes on to say:
In June of 1980 Kebrutney released a seven inch single of "I Wanna Be The King" b/w/ "Funky Kinky." This was my shot at being a performing writer and these were my first recordings done with the intent of being released to the general public. They were not demos. My thinking was to release a "double A side," which was reflected by the catalog numbers on the label: "KBH-516RAS" for "I Wanna Be The King" was the rock ("R") side and "KBH-516FAS" was the funk ("F") side. A monster record which drowned in the swamp after being chased by the villagers." -One Kind Favor.

Dont let the floral artwork fool you, M.A.M.s Grapes is one of the bleakest records Ive ever heard and Im incredibly pleased to be hoisting this slab of depression upon you all. This is a very down-and-out album of original songs written from the point of view of man who seems to be close to the void, or perhaps already within its deathly grips, reaching out to us with his weary, wraith-like voice. The songs seem to be interconnected, with the same characters and themes appearing on multiple cuts. Some of the lyrics deal with pain and loss obliquely, while others confront the harshness of reality head on: stomach problems, factory work, cancer treatment. Most of the material is recorded onto a wavering and echo-rich tape machine with just acoustic guitar, but as the album progresses, electric instruments and a full band cut through the fog. Its truly a harrowing work." - One Kind Favor.

Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"First time vinyl reissue of the Outsider, Real People, proto-punk fuzz of Ron Warren Gandertons debut under the Sound Ceremony name, Guitar Star, replete with more mellow modes than later offerings. During the late 1970s multi-instrumentalist Ganderton (guitar, harmonica, keyboards and piano) along with a rotating cast of accompanists (including future members of the Pretenders, late period progressive rockers Quasar, and Subway Sect) created a hard to narrowly define, small catalog of sounds praised by private-press hunters, esoteric appreciators and out of time searchers. Gandertons output holds echoes of monotone mavens like proto-punks Jonathan Richman and Lou Reed, similarities to cult-raved acts such as Armand Schaubroeck and Kenneth Higney, and carries a loose influence of the talking blues tradition while maintaining a uniqueness and singularity laced with 60s fuzz, primitive and skittering rhythms, and alternately confrontational and heart-on-sleeve topicality -- thusly eking out its own sonic territory with a population of one. To put it down succinctly, just like a period advertisement did, Ron Warren Ganderton is, One of rocks individuals.

"Canadian born guitarist and songwriter Ron Warren Ganderton self-released three LPs with his group Sound Ceremony while living in the United Kingdom during the 1970s and 80s. First came "Guitar Star" (1973), then "Sound Ceremony" (1979) and finally "Precious As England" (1981). Despite some modest distribution and frequent gigs, the band never seemed to really take off and Ganderton eventually returned to his native Vancouver (where he still resides), leaving hundreds of unsold records in the attic of his house. While these copies seem to have been lost to the ravages of time, One Kind Favor will now reissue the second Sound Ceremony LP. All of the groups efforts are undeniably unique, but "Sound Ceremony" (1979) is the true brain-damaged winner of the bunch. The record surely fits somewhere into the UK punk explosion of the day, but its also looks back to the mid-sixties rock that Ron cut his teeth on and ahead to some sort of maniac future form of entertainment that perhaps has not been invented yet. Gandertons truly "out of it" stream of consciousness lyrics show a clear lack of self-censorship and thats really one of the albums strongest assets. He has created this character of himself as a huge rock star and a sex symbol, and who are we to deny his claims? This stuff is eerily convincing. Like Lou Reed, the mans ideas often cant be contained by something so limiting as the bar line. The band chugs along amiably as Gandertons vocals wander all over the place.  If youve never heard a singer do a count-off all the way up to seventeen, then now is your big chance!  Features what is perhaps the greatest anti-cigarette song of all time." - One Kind Favor.

"Violinist and steel guitarist Ed Yazijian aka Dr Eweerd Yijji has played the Lee Underwood to Dredd Fooles Tim Buckley for past few decades with barely a thought to the contours of his own musical soul. For anyone expecting simply a series of solo violin and guitar readings, Six Ways To Avoid The Evil Eye will come as a real curveball, as the central orbit around which most of these tracks swing is mostly based in rhythmic/percussive ritual in a way that more immediately brings to mind the rain of stones that defines much of the Angus MacLise back catalog. Theres a heavy, devotional air to much of the activity that speaks of personal trance as eloquently as the works of Alice Coltrane, albeit transposed to a much more punk primitive palette of hand-drums, bows and traditional acoustic drones." - David Keenan, The Wire.

"The JMJ trio considers their music to be a part of the rich tradition of ambient music and trace their influences back to Erik Saties "furniture music" and John Cages ideas of inclusiveness. The environmental re-structuring found in the tape works of Luc Ferrari and Pierre Schaefer also contributed to the work in both sound and process. Contemporaries who have inspired the JMJ trio include such artists as Helen Said This-era Dead C, K-Group / Surface of the Earth, Omit, Dean Roberts, and Rafael Toral. Recording for In the Absence of the Third began in Oyster Bay, New York during the winter of 2000 and continued through the summer and fall months at the Library in New York City, using a simple four-track cassette recorder to document improvisations performed on alternately tuned and prepared guitars. The recording sessions were inspired in part from the ideas developed by the Nordoff-Robbins School of Musical Therapy; namely, that ones innate creativity can be expressed through improvisation, and that this exploration can positively address emotional, cognitive, and developmental needs. Additional sounds were drawn from the different recording spaces and from field recordings of the surrounding environment. Preliminary selections were digitized at The 402 Annex in October of the same year; recording, editing and mixing continued until the following spring. Improvisations were structured and re-structured in the digital medium through intuitive means. The goal was to layer sonic textures with shifting sound events that allowed the pieces to evolve. The JMJ Trio strove for music that dictated its own form, which re-invented itself within its own parameters. The living space became a crucial part in the creation of these sound events -- when someone unlocks the front door and slams it shut, the answering machine interrupting a recording session, St. Nicholas Avenue as a rain-slicked cavern, the sustained crackling of steam radiators throughout the apartment. The improvisations happened while life happened around us. In the Absence of the Third is packaged with silk screened and hand painted covers and is available in a limited edition of 250." - Tonevendor. Last copies of this 2006 release.

Previous releases on LINE and Sandwell District have blended techno and sonic art practices into an abstract landscape full of disjointed rhythm, cavernous depth and an enduring originality in his choice of sound. This 12" release on Opal Tapes consolidates those practices with a darker sonic palette than usual. "Box Caisson" opens side A with an ultra-deep shuffle through open circuitry, amp buzz and stabbing kick and bass line combination. Side B both brightens and darkens simultaneously as a stronger sense of melody is introduced on "Eye Splice," a cinematic cut evoking science/fact industrial work lines and gelatinous mid-range detailing.” - Opal Tapes.

Opener "A Gospel of Dirt" sets the scene with sparse sonic elements fused against a metallic backdrop. Sounds morph from liquid to solid shapes, melodies set to scales of a different time and place. "Bootstrapping" tickles ears with its off-color arpeggios backed up by a nine-legged gallop in the tesseract. "Þingvellir" opens the B-side in majestic style, a paean to glaciation, to gargantuan movement unmeasurable in human time. Cast in bronze tones, fizzing with combs before its deafening crescendo. Aum is a special record from a special musician and presents a modern take on cinema for the ear. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering.” - Opal Tapes.

Artist: HOLOVR
Title: Holo Earth
Format: LP
Label: Opal Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
“Jimmy Billingham returns to Opal Tapes with Holo Earth, the firstHOLOVR 12". The two sides are comprised of blended suites covering Billinghams past working with tapes and hardware into a future of more complex composition and convolving sample work. At times the record is sweet, drums bounce and bip with filigrees of synth whirling through like wind in a bottle. At other points the record empties and the lonely pulse ofVenn Rain (Jimmys earlier project) is felt most strongly. Estranged and blue-lipped, the field recordings of alien environments litter the blur emerging. A haunting listen.” - Opal Tapes.

Title: Hantasive
Format: UK
Label: Opal Tapes
Country: LP
Price: $22.00
“Electric charges on Hantasive. Kaumwald lights up his dials and twists out five rolling generations to terrify and animate. Plying a line between glitch-like manifestation and cruder analog sewage, these tracks are forged from degrees of digital and analog that gives a contemporary edge to the gritty grey-scale industrial and proto-rhythm you might find while digging through the Vanity Records catalog. Warm kicks and clipping digital synthesis is interlaced with acoustic sourcing and a curious, magnetic primacy -- developing vital color and tactility to these here wares. Think to those contemporary and necessary combinations of computer and combustion engine, but repurposed to a more Jean Tinguely-esque display of machinery for machineries-sake; built to chatter and clunk, to error, and essentially deteriorate. That quest for the perfect minimal weirdo beat re-cut for now.” - Opal Tapes.

Artist: LUMISOKEA
Title: Apophenia
Format: LP
Label: Opal Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
“The rich, dark sound of Lumisokea, the Belgian-Italian duo of Andrea Taeggi and Koenraad Ecker, annexes a dark, foreboding aura from an abundance of reference points -- codifying and making concrete the connections that which might otherwise have been elusive or intangible in the worlds of noise, dub, techno and musique concrète. Apophenia follows their Opal Tapes debut Contrapasso, and sees their sound continue to develop; growing in intensity and twisting into more complex, aggressive, and euphorically bent shapes. All seems abstract, not as "whoa, thats weird," but as though every element exists in direct opposition with nature and organic order. Industrial and technoid beats are rolled over sub-sonic, hyper-digital abrasions of noise and synthetic texture to reinforce and fortify the more extreme end of Opals sonic interests. Synthetic stomp and precise, premeditated glissandi form sonic sculptures where the unreal is turned towards something frighteningly palpable.” - Opal Tapes.

Sharing more in common with Jamal Moss at his maddest, Regis in full swing circa 97 or Unit Moebius as wed imagine them every day, the young Swede bucks all expectations with five tracks of blistered machine drum jack, overdriven to fuck and liable to take your eyebrows off. Its funky as hell and noisy as sin and does it with so much more swerve, sexiness and off-the-cuff cool than so many boneheaded, funkless techno types we dont care to mention.

A despairing atmosphere dominates the remainder of the side with less percussive yet still deeply rhythmic tracks evocative of the power electronics of Slaughter Productions yet brought to be with the sensibility of a techno producer. Everything is darkened with sonic dirt and dismal vibes but remains nuanced, layered and highly dynamic.” - Opal Tapes.

Country: Italy
Price: $135.00
"Fourth volume in the ongoing "Cosmic Debris" series of split ART-LP releases set up by the Opalio brothers, aka MY CAT IS AN ALIEN (MCIAA), on their own Opax Records. This time the space improv duo from Torino, Italy, shares one side of the vinyl with Swedish radical saxophonist MATS GUSTAFSSON, whose twenty-year career boasts collaborations that range widely over the contemporary improvised music world, from masters of the free jazz such as Peter Brotzmann, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, to famous members of the noise scene such as Thurston Moore, Jim ORourke, Yoshimi & Yamataka Eye among others. In every personal message exchange between MCIAA and Gustafsson, their own respective ALIEN FAITH! & PEACE & FIRE! mottos always occur, often combined by the artists themselves into new formulae & meanings: ALIEN FIRE! / PEACE & FAITH! / ALIEN PEACE! / FAITH & FIRE!. Needless to say dear gents, this is not a joke, yet each of these words combination assumes a deep rule in describing this new exciting adventure in the Cosmic Debris saga. In fact both artists tracks represent an exemplary encounter between open-minded artists, resolute in creating something to go beyond limits and their own goals too, looking for something truly alive and free: Peace & Fire! and Alien Faith! indeed. In his track I Have Not Set Any Time Limits For The Attempt Mats Gustafsson plays tenor and slide sax, weevil sax, and electronics. In MCIAAs Everything Burns Like Cosmic Debris the space brothers play astral and cosmic guitars, vocals, mouth harmonica, space toys and burning percussions. The five-volumes series "Cosmic Debris" features My Cat Is An Alien alongside Text Of Light, Steve Roden, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Loren Connors & his Haunted House band. Each record comes with an original acrylic painting by Roberto Opalio on 30x30cm proper canvas, with a unique Polaroid instant film installed on each piece, representing 100 different perspectives of a same subject related to My Cat Is An Aliens own cosmic imaginary." - Opax.

Title: Cosmic Debris, Vol.II
Format: LP/Art
Label: Opax
Country: Italy
Price: $112.00
"Second installment in the "Cosmic Debris" split ART-LP series set up by Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, aka My Cat Is An Alien, on their own Opax Records. The Vol.II sees the two space brothers from Torino, Italy, alongside Californian visual and sound artist Steve Roden. What makes this collaborative release so peculiar is the natural interactive exchange occurred between the artists, and that came out from the concept behind the experience itself. Rodens contribution thus represents the unique experience of hearing him literally playing guitar chords. His first track, "E-bows and Rainbows", developes through the minimal and reiterated sound architecture of Rodens so-called possible landscapes, where singular source materials such as objects and field recordings are abstracted through electronic processes to generate new audio spaces, characterizing the artists aesthetic in sound works; the following "My dog is a Yufo" is so far a pretty unheard aspect of Rodens ability to shape a fascinating intimate piece only with an old electric guitar and his own fingers, and it also demonstrates how a true artist can re-create his own personal universe, no matter what kind of source utilized. On their side, MCIAA deliver another piece of cosmic debris, centered on multilayered echoes of voice, toy piano, space drones raising from a distant horizon, and their own physical gestures performed during the recording, which reproduce themselves through the air, re-play and give birth to echoes of real time that overcomes its own essence, becoming field recording itself, mirror and spectre of its immutability. Their track entitled "Everything waves like cosmic debris" also features Ramona Ponzinis Japanese bells contribution. The five-volumes series "Cosmic Debris" features My Cat Is An Alien alongside Text Of Light, Steve Roden, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Loren Connors & his Haunted House band.

"Bill Nace (Guitar) and Kim Gordon (Guitar, voice). So much more than a likely pairing, this is a group which manages to illuminate the best of both players while simultaneously pushing them into fresh territory. Live shows have been accompanied by slowed films, and the pairs obsession with cinema comes across in the music itself. The pieces exist as vignettes in and of themselves, all the while presenting a full-bodied emotional narrative over the course of the records 20 minutes. Its fascinating to hear Nace and Gordon develop these ideas, to hear relatively simple pulses, stabs, moans, and calls take shape as something almost like songs. There is a strange terror to this music. Electric shards punch through and shatter the air. There is agonizing pain living in the guitars and genuine anguish in Gordons voice. It is some of the most courageous and emotive singing of her career. This is some of the most fantastically elastic music currently being produced, shifting form and formlessness without batting an eye. Like the best art, it exists out beyond the limits of what we can easily define. Its as pained as it is curious, as free as it is claustrophobic, full of spellbinding tension throughout, from the sparse opening of Turn Me On to the intensely moving and breathtakingly sad closer, Where Did You Go?, a track thats as good as anything either player has ever put to tape. Its so scary and so sad, so tender and so angry, a consummate example of what both musicians are capable of, the capstone to a sequence so satisfying one wants to just play it again. The music changes shape with each listen, behind each shadow lives another melting perspective. Beautifully pressed at 45rpm, the fullness and depth of sound and feeling come through loud and clear. This record is a complete picture, a blurry pool at night, a short story to revisit over and over again." -Matt Krefting.

"Recorded during a recent trek to the Pacific Northwest, this session is very damaged by the post-tongue explosive devices packed by each of the quartets members. Skittering along the most devious edge of improvisational madness, Greg, Greg, Bill and Mr. Shoup bring four chunks of deep underground moisture into the air for the first time. Let us make to examine them. Morning greets the listener beneath a raucous grackle filled tree, mounting to a commuters rage. Then along comes a mage with mushrooms, and the growl and rasp spreads out into what one must imagine a stoned rabbits brain records from a dawn. In Separating a door from a window, Mr. Shoups sax limns the wall of sound into permeable spaces. The horns and percussion throw up bramble hollers of humorous squawk, but in the end, Wally is triumphant. Like smoke snaking over the door, Transom is a very present and seductive piece. If you are a programmer, this is an excellent sound experience to loop, as it is both loving and bossy. Horn and reed lead you into Nothing is deprived of its warmth, and then gleefully pierce your eardrums with needles. Once the path has been cleared to your brain, molten notes are poured in and, like a Dead Head prostrate with his pipe, you become one with the universe. A warm universe. At first I thought it was weird they named this album after the lost book of Tolkiens Silmarillion. Now Im not so sure." - Lili Dwight/Byron Coley, Deerfield MA 2015.

"At long last, this recording sees a proper release. Theres a story: Initially, I released this as a cassette on my own label, Silver Lining. To be fair, you can hardly call it a label. I have no right releasing my own music, let alone anyone elses. Im bad at manufacturing things, Im bad at promoting them, and Im especially dismal when it comes to packing things up and mailing them out. And so this cassette had a brief brush with public life and then vanished, due primarily to my negligence and laziness. This is where Open Mouth, once again, comes to the rescue. The record comes in a gorgeous full-color sleeve, and the sound is so much finer than the cassette that even the more sweaty-palmed collectors out there will gladly welcome this object in favor of its previous incarnation, and join me in eagerly awaiting the day when these two release a proper full length. I like that they call this EP BAND. Its a subtle melding of the personal and the conceptual. The "B" from "Bill," the "A" from "Aaron," the "N" from "Nace," and the "D" from "Dilloway." Its simple. But theyre not really a band. A band is a thing that exists over time and practices and builds its own identity. Or something. This is a duo. A meeting of the minds. A conversation. A lost weekend. At their best, duos illuminate the core tenets of individuals while pushing them into territory they might not otherwise occupy. It sounds easy but its anything but. Just look at divorce rates. Nace and Dilloway make the perfect duo. For years, theyve each kept their music fresh, always avoiding preconceived notions of what theyre supposed to do. Dilloways tape loops and electronics are routinely musical, which Naces guitar always stretches to the edges of alien electricity. Both exude a refreshing and vehement disregard for cliché without leaving behind the necessity of tradition. One hears the earliest hints of electronic music, the conceptual and visceral assault of noise, the structural and spiritual liberation offered by free jazz, the delicate patience of extended techniques, and so much more. This collaboration though, like their back catalogs, works because it is beholden to none of these. Their individual voices are recognizable, yet the records allure is found when those voices funnel into one another. In these moments, whos who becomes irrelevant, and the music is elevated to its rightful place, far above the concerns of personality or individualism. The gurgles, scrapes, moans, and loops build their own intoxicating fog, a metallic expanse with its own logic. After all these listens, I remain disoriented by it. Its the kind of thing you want to play again because you cant quite remember exactly what it sounds like. Im reminded of J.G. Ballard: “The slower the clock, the nearer it approximated the infinitely gradual and majestic progression of cosmic time.” And maybe thats the thing. Nace and Dilloway each embrace the immediacy of moments and the endless march of time equally, so for this record to finally see the real light of day is no minor event." - Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA, 2016.

Flahertys saxwork has been well known for decades, and is personally responsible for hitching many young mules to the free jazz wagon train. Naces guitar stylings are a more recent development, but they have hewed to such an idiosyncratic path that their constantly renewing techniques feel as timeless as butter. Not sure exactly how these guys fell into the same boat. Presumably Chris Tigercat Corsano was involved. He had, afterall, maintained a long-running eponymous duo with Flaherty as well as one called Vampire Belt with Nace. So that may have been the key. Perhaps the twod get together to jam along with the TV set when Corsano and Bjork would appear on some laye night program. Maybe thats how it started. But whatever the case, the combination of Flahertys long wiggling shrieks and Naces amp-rasped string-explosions is a lovely totter into the abstract eye of a very hot furnace. There is tons of high-aktion skronk on this LP without any kind of apologizing about lack of formal content or linear development (both codewords for bullshit). This mother just GOES. And its sure to appeal to anyone who also likes going. Especially if they hate fucking cops. (Note: the cover art by Rick Fang Myers shows two Bobbies being melted by UFO lasers.) Or even if they just hate Rudy Giuliani, which, presumably we all do. Imagine this as a very loud bullet slowly pushing its way through Rudys skull and just wallow in the pleasure of it all. Yum!" -Byron Coley

Title: High Hopes
Format: LP
Label: Open Mouth
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"High Hopes is recording of music for cassettes. While the general tone is experimental, the structural elements of song are not left behind. Each side is a continuous statement comprised of brief motifs and repetitive strains bleeding into one another, coalescing into a cold narrative of half-remembered, slow mbiras, 78s of an orchestra in endless refrain, a confused piano, a vocal hosanna... While the pacing allows a certain introspection and the tape fidelity allows a certain detachment, direction and concision are not sacrificed. Elements from side A reappear on side B recomposed, and an overall tone of melancholy is maintained throughout. E.M. Cioran said, A heart without music is like beauty without melancholy. Here... youve got it all." -Greg Kelley.

Title: LAppel du Vide
Format: LP
Label: Open Mouth

Price: $19.00
"Subterranean, nearly-inaudible restraint and a rushing, stuttering throb rule the night on this new record. Its electric moods are so resolutely alien they suggest worlds unknown rather than create them. Irregular heartbeat thumps are set against high end atmospheres explored in microscopic detail. Haunting overlays of tones fluctuate and tremble, and not one moment feels forced. The music is meticulously constructed and consistently surprising. The electronics spin away, shooting off into bizarre and unexpected territory, and all the while Meginsky guides them with a benevolent, confident, endlessly fascinating hand. To hear him tell it, the record is a document of me looking for the experience I have not yet had, and maybe will never have. This is where the title comes from. The pull of the void. Natural phenomena, like fog or mist, tend to render the environment and ones ability to see it nearly impossible, and if you tilt your head back like you have a nosebleed there is always the fear that the sun might set sooner. When you stop in a secret place there is no need to talk. These are streets full of sullen languid violence and grey phantoms. Edition of 300. Cover art by Bill Nace. Play at 45 and play loud." -- Matt Krefting Holyoke, MA May 2014.

Title: Vandals
Format: LP
Label: Open Mouth
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Below a shuffling cabasa-like rhythm, a pair of taut drum patterns is punctuated by swirling electronic crackle and a deep bass drop. Slowly and almost imperceptibly, layers of spongy beats accumulate until theyre wiped out dub-style by an echoing sonar moan that suspends the track in a dark and undulating aquatic reverie, a lull broken by jittery bass tones and reverberant knocks that surge into an intricate percussive maelstrom. Jake Meginskys music is distinctly low end and percussive. While nodding to minimal house, dub, and noise, Meginskys electronica bears ample evidence of his apprenticeship with fiery avant-jazz percussionist Milford Graves and his training in West African djun djun and djembe. Theres nothing rigid or mechanical here. On the contrary, Meginskys rhythmic sensibility is supple and flexible -- rumbling, fluttering, and bouncing in elastic configurations of enchanting complexity. All rhythm and squall, the pieces on Vandals cant be called “songs”; but theyre too non-linear to be called “tracks” and too structurally unpredictable to be “compositions.” Rather, Meginsky builds little electronic ecosystems that seem to breed sounds in all their timbral and textural diversity, and to observe what results as they ally and skirmish with one another." -Christoph Cox.

Title: These

Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Wherein we come upon three visceralists who have been collaborating for years - innumerable instances in a roulette wheel of settings -- finally shacking up in a studio and fashioning a proper trio record. Glory be. Lets listen in-- These. Its a phrase that never gets started, and an apt title for this record, which right off bolts from the barn and burns so brightly it nearly gets away from you by the time youre done twisting your head around looking for whoever it was that left the door open. He asked me when I planned to come back. Always, I said. Naces guitar mines savage depths, egging on the propulsive swing of Flaherty and Corsano. The results are as beastly as the heart itself. Swing. Bounce. Joust. Jab. Uppercut. Flutter. Wink. Sneer. They all play with anguish and ecstatic rupture -- the frustrating joy of pushing an instrument to its limits, fashioning a necessary and brutal needlepoint. They move with all the otherworldly elegance and mania of moths at a lamp show. The music asks no specific questions, but wrenches open a space for all manner of questions -- this is one of arts most vital functions! It deals in shades, no matter how sharp the apparent angle. Check out the second track on the first side: the solemn bells of Bills guitar signal not so much a funeral, but a new dawn after a tragedy. Flahertys saxophone sounds innocent, almost tentative at first, but as Chris drums chime in, Paul starts to wrench the fabric loose. The track builds into a fierce and alien vista, charting a territory all its own -- a simmering judgement. It becomes hard to talk about. Didnt you ever try to eat your own tail in the midday sun? No? These three, whose veins are coursing straight through with a nuanced emotional lexicon and the smarts to harness it, have given us a record that expands potential with each listen." - Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA 2017.

"Originally released in 1985 for Chris Carters Mondo Beat LP on Conspiracy International, "Moonlight" is getting a long-overdue single release of the original and reinterpretation from Neurotic Drum Band. A long-time fave of JD Twitchs, "Moonlight" was a hit in the late 80s with a much slowed-down bootlegged version on the Belgian new beat scene and amongst the Italian cosmic DJs. Neurotic Drum Band keep the original feel, slowing it down just a touch for an ultra-head-trip psychedelic spaceflight." -Optimo

Title: The Spaces Between
Format: LP
Label: Optimo
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Originally recorded between 1974 and 1978 at Industrial Records studio in London, The Space Between was first released as a 90-minute cassette in 1980 on Throbbing Gristles Industrial Records label. It wasnt until 1991 that it was again released by Mute Records on CD. For those who may not know, Chris Carter is one of the founding members of Throbbing Gristle, partners with Cosey Fanni Tutti (knows as Carter-Tutti and formerly recording as Chris & Cosey) who has been working with sound for over 40 years. Although tracks from The Space Between have appeared on numerous compilations since its release, the album has never been available on vinyl -- until now. This new vinyl edition on Optimo Music, now retitled The Spaces Between, doesnt include all the tracks on the original album but has been enhanced and remastered from the original two-track master tapes and has new cover artwork especially for this release. JD Twitch has this to say about the release: "The original release featured fifteen tracks. As I wanted to have a reasonably loud vinyl pressing, I have picked my favorites to appear here (not an easy task to narrow it down). In addition, there is a bonus track Climbing which was recorded around the same time that was released by Coils Geoff Ruston on his Men With Deadly Dreams cassette in 1981. One of the first-ever recordings to use an 808 drum machine, it still sounds as if it is from tomorrow. In my opinion, these are some of the key recordings in the history of electronic music. They were made using very basic equipment at a time when there was no blueprint for what electronic music could and should be. There is a beauty, an emotion and an imagination present here that is lacking in a lot of modern machine music. This music is as vital and wondrous today as it was four decades ago."- Optimo.

Title: [Cease & Desist] DIY! Cult Classics from the Post-Punk Era (1978-1982)
Format: Double LP
Label: Optimo Music
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
Limited 2016 repress. "[Cease & Desist] DIY! Cult Classics from the Post-Punk Era (1978-1982) collects 15 UK 7" singles recorded between 1978 and 1982, compiled by JD Twitch to showcase the DIY spirit of those times. "If Punk was the nuclear detonation, the fallout that came after was where a lot of the most interesting music of that era was made. People who would never have thought to release a record before realised it was something they could do, and the end result was a DIY explosion. Ive always loved music that doesnt try to fit in a particular genre, that is anti-canonical and doesnt care what else is going on in music at that time, that takes risks and is full of imagination and ideas that may or may not make any logical sense but that resulted in something unique, that ignores conventions about how a record SHOULD be produced and that was created simply because its creators felt the urge to express themselves and share the results with some other people. This compilation compiles 15 tracks that fulfil all those criteria. None of them had any success, most are (unjustly) obscure but every one of them has inspired me and would be in my ultimate 7" singles box" --JD Twitch. This release has been a real labor of love, involving tracing long-lost artists to far-flung corners of the globe, persuading them that the modern world needs to hear the music they made several decades ago, tracking down masters -- lovingly restoring 7"s in place of lost masters in some cases -- and conceiving an elaborate package with detailed sleeve notes to house the double album. Unfortunately, the original choice of title for this release infringed on the copyright of a series of well-known pop compilations released by a certain major label. They sent a cease and desist letter (hence the title of this edition), and did not accept proposed modifications to the original sleeves, so this edition is released in a more conventional package than was intended. Gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves containing sleeve notes and detailed overviews of each individual track by JD Twitch and an introduction by New Yorks DIY expert Dan Selzer. Includes tracks by Tesco Bombers, Sara Goes Pop, People in Motion, Nancy Sesay & the Melodaires, The Distributors, Dorothy, Thomas Leer, Visitors, The Murphy Federation, The Cro-Tones, Fatal Microbes, Spunky Onions, The Fakes, and The Prats." - Optimo Musik.

"Peter Zummo presents Dress Code (Dont Look At My Car) on Optimo Music. Peter Zummo (born 1948) is an American composer and musician. He plays the trombone, valve trombone, euphonium, synthesizer, other electronic instruments, and also sings. He is associated with the post-minimalist and Downtown aesthetics, and he describes his music as "minimalism plus a whole lot more." Hes well-known for his work with Arthur Russell." - Optimo Music.
"In this project for Optimo, the listener can hear that my musical food pyramid has musicians at top, or maybe they are at the bottom. In any case, they are important. That is why, from track to track, I selected segments in which one player or another is featured in the take. Some may think that we musicians do multiple takes to get the perfect performance, but I like to find the special interactions lurking in each excursion. Different players came forward in each of the takes, which were recorded in the studios Seaside Lounge and Headroom, in Brooklyn, and live in performances at Cube Cinema, in Bristol, UK, as well as in Long Island City and on Staten Island, New York. In order to escape the tyranny of the lyric, I am exploring in this release the possibilities of nonsensical and non-emotional lyrics. These kinds of lyrics bring the singing voices into the mix without an overweening message. The tracks include open-form compositions in which the duration was not specified." -- Peter Zummo, June 2016.

Title: Zummo With An X
Format: LP
Label: Optimo Music
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
Originally released in 1985 in an edition of 500 copies, this is the first time this album has been available on vinyl for nearly 30 years. Peter Zummo (born 1948) is an American composer and musician. He plays the trombone, valve trombone, euphonium, synthesizer, other electronic instruments, and also sings. He is associated with the post-minimalist and Downtown aesthetics, and he describes his music as "minimalism plus a whole lot more." "I first discovered Peter Zummo when I first discovered Arthur Russell. I kept hearing THAT trombone sound throughout Arthurs music and through scanning through various label credits made the connection that this Peter Zummo character was a constant collaborator with Arthur. Zummos trombone sound is one of those things that if I am feeling anxious or pissed off will instantly soothe me and make everything feel alright. So, as well as wanting to hear everything Arthur had touched, I now also wanted to hear everything Mr. Zummo had created too. Its worth bearing in mind that at this point, in the mid- to late 90s, there was almost zero information online about Arthur or his music or his collaborators. The upside of this was that all his records werent too hard to track down and werent going for crazy money. I randomly found Zummo With An X in New York around 1999 and wasnt sure what to expect. I instantly liked the first side, Lateral Pass but side 2s Song IV took my breath away and remains to this day one of my most listened-to records. Despite the minimal elements, I hear more in it every time I listen to it, and sometimes the perfect interaction between cello, trombone and percussion sounds like the voice of Arthur being beamed in from the aether. It is 20 minutes of sheer bliss that feels as if it could go on for twice as long. Unavailable on vinyl since 1985, its a great honor to be making this record available again and I cant imagine anyone with even a passing interest in Peter Zummo or Arthur Russells music failing to be beguiled by this." -Twitch.

2003 reissue, originally recorded 1982; seminal German underground electronics. "Born from the desire to reintroduce on the market an outstanding, yet surprisingly unknown work of the 1980s, this ORAL release is also the result of a dialogue with hypermedia researcher and artist Konrad Becker, which occurred during chance, yet fruitful meetings. Sometimes in the path of a music lover and record collector, a work will beckon you, imposing itself with its singularity, depth and timelessness. Monotonprodukt 07, produced in 1982, is such a work." "...is so alive with the pulses that triggered many electronicas to come, from techno through trance to Megos creeping static, you could make a case for Beckers guruhood. Yet, for all its prescient washed out tones, threadbare textures and minimalist rigour, it has the edge on much that followed. Adopting an imperious art stance towards mainstreams and margins alike, Becker cast a cold analytic eye over electronicas urfathers, picking up on Suicides jittertronic urgency, if not their melodrama, and DAFs throbbing sequencers, but with the sex threat removed, which he patched into his own crackling circuits, hissing vistas and tumbling beatstreams." -- The Wire, #175, Sept. 1998, from the article "100 records that set the world on fire (when no one was listening)."

"This new vinyl release from Orange Mountain Music presents Philip Glass first concert ever in what the composer considers his debut. The concert took place on May 19, 1968 at the Film Makers Cinematheque at 80 Wooster Street in Soho, New York City. The performance was the first all-Glass concert ever and featured solo works and duets with visual elements. This recording captures two of the solo works on the program including Glass himself performing How Now for solo organ and Strung Out for solo amplified violin performed by the legendary Dorothy Pixley-Rothchild for whom Glass had previously written a violin concerto for in 1960. It was soon after this concert that Glass started his own ensemble for which he wrote many new works. Consequently many of the works from this pre-Philip Glass Ensemble period were not performed for a long time. Strung Out has the sheet music strung out in an L shape and the performer walks along the music as he/she goes farther into the piece. This is the oldest recording of any kind of Philip Glass early music." - Orange Mountain.

Recorded between April and July 2012, their twelve lo-fi tracks of fuzzy and shambling indie recall Wingtip Sloat, Shrimper singles, Hood, and like that. Edition of 100." - Orgasm.

Title: Emak 3
Format: LP
Label: Originalton West
Country: Germany
Price: $30.00
"EMAK started in 1981 as a loose collaboration of several individuals interested in electronic music at a time when almost no one else seemed to be interested in electronic music at all. The collaborators on EMAK 1: Matthias Becker -  owned a small 8-track studio at that time. Kurt Mill - had the initial idea for the project and co-produced the first album with M. Becker. Klaus Stühlen - a keyboard wizard of local fame interested in rare and special sounds - he worked as a freelance sessionplayer and composer of film music. Michael Filz - an amateur muscian with a faible for electronic music. EMAK 2: (released 1984) Becker, Mill, Stühlen again. Michael Filz had left and Peter Fröhlich joined who contributed some tracks to emak 2 which reflected the NDW movement which was en vogue at that time. Beckers  track a lhorizon clervaux with its combination of gregorian chants and electronics already presents the concept which which Michael Cretu several years later should earn a fortune with his project "enigma". EMAK 3:(released 1986) it`s Becker and Stühlen again, Fröhlich and Mill left. New: U.Fuchs : bass player and multi-instrumentalist and M. Peschko:  Soundengineer with a faible for minimal sound design. Soundwise definetely the best of the emak records , featuring strange Harry Partch instrumentation on no city zoo in ottawa and the voice of the late John Peel on "sunken galleons an pirate pictures". To be honest: John Peel, who was still alive at that time did not like the track at all. Maybe because Becker had taken parts of Peels voice from an old tyrannosaurus rex album without having asked peel before doing so." - Minimal-Wave.org (Artist Bio).

Title: Ghost Ship Rodez
Format: CD
Label: Orion Read
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"In Ghost Ship Rodez Terry Allen pursues a fictional investigation of what may have happened in the mind of French artist, playwright and actor Antonin Artaud during a 17-day journey restrained in the dark hold of the freighter Washington in 1937, and later, in various mental institutions. While living in France, Artaud had obtained a walking stick that he considered was the staff of Jesus Christ handed down to St. George. In 1937, Artaud journeyed to Ireland to return the staff to its country of origin. However, while there, he experienced a series of extreme mental and emotional crises that culminated in a violent altercation with Dublin police. Artaud’s subsequent deportation to France was a grueling journey, which he spent straitjacketed and chained to a metal cot in the bowels of the ship. The live theater piece from which this radio play was adapted, was originally commissioned by and developed at Les Subsistance Artist Atellier Laboratories, Lyon, France and performed there as a work-in- progress, June 2006, at Festival Les Intranquilles. It was further developed and performed at MassMoca, North Adams, MA, Feb. 2008. The completed work premiered at the Lensic Theater of the Performing Arts, Santa Fe, NM, April 2010 in conjunction with Terry Allen’s exhibition Ghost Ship Rodez (The Momo Chronicles) at Site Santa Fe, Feb-May, 2010." - Orion Read

"Four years before the release of his celebrated country concept album, Juarez, Terry Allen was invited by his friend Allen Ruppersberg to perform at the opening night of Als Grand Hotel, an installation/exhibition where Ruppersberg converted a two-story craftsman house in Hollywood into a fully functioning hotel with seven themed guest rooms. Terry Allen set up his piano and played all original songs to a familiar and enthusiastic crowd, including early versions of the Juarez series and five songs that remained unreleased until now. Lost for almost 40 years, the original recordings have been restored and released as a new gatefold LP album with photographs documenting the installation and live performance. The record brings together sad songs and mad songs, songs about the past and the uncertain future… live, raw material from the beginning of this great songwriters career." - Orion Read.

"After reading that Bob Dylan’s forthcoming album, Tempest, will include a 14-minute song about the Titanic, comedian Tim Heidecker set out to record an equally epic song about the ship, to “see if I could beat the master to it.” The rhyming ballad begins in 1912 and ends in the present day with James Cameron’s decision to re-release The Titanic (1997) in 3-D. “I can’t wait to see how close I got to the real thing!” The album also includes a cover of Dylan’s All the Tired Horses (1970), along with previously unreleased songs inspired by: the failed sequel to suburban biker movie, Wild Hogs (2007); life at home; an assignment from a friend; and fear of death and earthquakes. Heidecker (Tom Goes to the Mayor, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Billion Dollar Movie, is also half of the soft rock band, Heidecker and Wood. 2012, edition of 500, vinyl only." - Orion Read

Title: Warp Engines
Format: LP
Label: Orion Read
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"This soundtrack for William Leavitts sculptural installation Warp Engines (2009) combines cello, played arco and pizzicato, with audio clips from sound effects libraries. As early as 1970, when he created a soundtrack for the installation Forest Sound, Leavitt had the desire to introduce the possibility of mood and atmosphere to the installation with the addition of sound. In the 1980s, he began making electronic music circuits, eventually completing his own analog synthesizer, and more recently hes been making cellos by hand.

Leavitt is an artist, playwright, and musician living in Los Angeles. His artwork was the subject of a recent retrospective titled Theater Objects at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in 2011. He performs and records music for many of his installations and theater pieces, sometimes collaborating with musicians Joseph Hammer and Rick Potts. As a cellist he has played in several Los Angeles groups including Provisional Riviera, Solid Eye, and the Subtones." - Orion Read.

Artist: NICODEMUS
Title: Toxic Crunch
Format: LP
Label: Orion Read
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"A fitting epitaph for the undisputed master of biker-synth-folk-psych, "Toxic Crunch" is perhaps the definitive Nicodemus LP. Recorded from 1986-1999 with his brother Kid Matchez and released on cassette on his own Zedikiah label in 99, the legendary outlaw biker and cosmonaut Nicodemus is in fine form, with his gravelly pipes rivaling Dr. John and Beefheart on funky fucked odes to livin free, escaping the electric chair and the joys of morning wood. For those unfamiliar, the lore is that Nicodemus got his start as a wee lad doing guitar session-work for Motown. His band Jim Harlem Trio was nearly signed to the label but a manager stole the tapes. Nicodemus became a lone wolf in the late 60s, though riding with the Satans Last Revenge motorcycle club. While self-releasing some 50 LPs, cassettes, 45s, and other genius bits of DIY damaged biker-soul, Nicodemus was shot multiple times, did as many drugs as humanly possible, and had many crashes--breaking nearly every bone in his body. The force of nature known as St. Nic also painted surrealist cosmic scenes under the name Chongo;  released 14 books of poetry, prose, and fiction; and for 11 years studied the healing methods of the Mescalero Apache (he is also known as Whitecrow)-- all while living the life of a true outcast and recording his uncategorizable musical vision of dark swampy blues, motorik grooves, ballsy rawk, synth fuckery, and alchemical folky strains. "Toxic Crunch" is easily his most all-encompassing work, and features original sleeve and label artwork by Chongo and his son, BluRaven. This fully authorized reissue is being released by Orion Read on vinyl LP in August 2013, with quality pressing at RTI and old-style sleeves by Stoughton Printing. Sadly, Nicodemus passed away on March 29th, 2013, but St. Nic and his music will not be forgotten."  -S. Krakow.

Title: Small Town Country, Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: Orion Read
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“The songs that make up this unprecedented album were gathered and compiled by Austin based musician and record collector Jason Chronis. He visited countless small towns across Texas and beyond, in search of anything and everything that might be etched on vinyl.
From mountains of material, he chose these fourteen forgotten odes and put them in an order that tells a story. Like Harry Smiths visionary anthology of folk music, this selection of private press country music captures the joys and the sorrows of people who sang for themselves.
These songs speak directly to the concerns of real people, our experiences and dreams, and the gap between them. Of course, these musicians had also hoped to score on the charts, a desire that almost defines country music, but it didnt happen that way. Now, 30, 40, 50 years after these records were handed to friends and mailed to local radio stations, perhaps country music is in for some definition expansion.
More than half of these raw and intimate songs came out of Texas, where there has always been a strong regional music tradition. As history recedes and country music shakes off the commercial dominance of the Nashville hit machine, Texas country music, with its straightforward, “take it or leave it” sentiment and rugged, stripped down sound, will be known for its influence on all types of musicians and songwriters. And perhaps the unknown country musicians that made the music on this LP were right when they pooled resources, asked favors, and poured their hearts out onto 45s…thinking they had a hit on their hands!” - Orion Read.

Title: Slicer
Format: LP
Label: Orion Read
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
“Coming just months after Dread (Wolf Eyes first LP as a trio), Slicer was released on cassette in an edition of 50 in 2001. From start to finish, its a full-fledged sonic experience. Deep stuttering bass, high streams of electronics, rugged tape manipulation, horns, glass - this recording contains an enormous spectrum of sound. Mastering legend John Golden, who cut the lacquer for vinyl, said it was like cutting a sonic obstacle course. That doesnt mean Slicer is a record that youll play once and file away.The Olson, Young, and Dilloway line-up, which lasted just 5 years, shows unusual restraint here. The calm intensity of their wildly bizarre sonic experiments and masterful compositional moves make for a rewarding repeat listen.
With influences coming from all over - avant-garde sound art, industrial music, psychedelic rock - specifically, Slicer brings to mind the perfectly edited Malesch from Agitation Free, the immediacy of SPK, and the innovation of Henning Christiansen. If youve followed their prolific output, you wont be surprised that band practice was also always a recording session, and these guys all had solo projects too - they played all the time. Their ideas developed from jamming, and you can hear the confidence, the control of tone, the patience of the improvisations.
Wolf Eyes were looking for, finding and fleshing out new musical forms. This is deeply ambitious music made without academic pretensions. This record contains some of the most minimal programming in their catalog and the editing and mastering are nothing short of inspired. Setting an impossibly high watermark just as the noise scene was getting on its feet, few, if any, have come close to the energy and power of this recording since.” - Orion Read.

Title: Dumb Records: 1977-1979
Format: LP
Label: Orion Read/Athena
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"The Bay Area punk scene really started to energize in early 77, when bands like Crime, the Nuns, the Mutants, and the Avengers started drawing rabid fans to legendary venue Mabuhay Gardens. Novak was a Mills College grad student with a background in avant-garde composition—hed worked with Robert Moog and John Cage as an undergrad—and access to a 12-track recording studio. He started making his own version of garage-inspired punk rock. By the end of 77, hed formed a band, played Mabuhay Gardens five times, started his own label—Dumb Records, and released his first 7”, “RU21.” He did all the engineering and production himself, glued the 500 covers by hand, and went around on foot to San Francisco record stores trying to get people to listen.
Novak met the Nuns Alejandro Escovedo at Mabuhay when the Nuns opened up for the Ramones, and ended up recording a three-song demo for the band. Shortly after, Novak produced Crimes second single, “Frustration”/”Murder by Guitar.” Gathering momentum, Novak put out a second 7”, “Oh Farrah!,” later that year. He went on to put out two more Novak singles, and also—returning to his avant-garde roots—a more experimental project called the Survivors, two savage drone tracks that incorporate eerie vocal samples of cult leader Jim Jones. Into the early 80s Novak broadened the Dumb Records catalog, issuing releases by local bands BOB and Ixna.
One part glam, one part dumb is smart, one part riff rock n roll, Novaks music is raw, arty punk rock. The fourteen tracks on this LP preserve the legacy of the Novak project by collecting the four Novak 45s and the Survivors 45.
Co-released with Athena Records.
Includes free download including three bonus unreleased studio tracks from 79.

Transgressing jazz and artrock and incorporating Blues and poetry the band shows a broad variety in their selfpenned songs and generel musical approach. Recorded live at a castle in Odense at various sessions between 1972 and 1975. All songs written by Kjeld Andersen, a prime specimen of the Danish singer/songwriter sadly overlooked in his time.

Life Beyond the Doghouse consists of previously unreleased studio recordings from 1983 and 1986. On side 1 Bobb is backed by his old backingband Violent Reactions from the LP Iron Curtain Innocence from 1980. Six years havent made the music more mainstream. Its so dark and its so lonely. The songs are desperate and have a strange dreamy atmosphere. Bobb is floating like an untouchable ghostlike entity through the darkness. And the voice... scary! Crippled Dog Band on side two is recordings from 1983. Fuzzguitar with adlib phaser. Uncontrolled microphone to all bandmembers. Punkrock attitude from first on. Psychedelic folkpunk with a lot of sounds thats really not supposed to be there. In spite of nearly 20 years in the cupboard it sounds just as fresh as on the day it was recorded." - Orpheus.

Also, some solo and collaborative pieces were released in Belgium and Germany on singles, EPs and compilation albums . I have always thought of my work as art rather than entertainment . I make that distinction to emphasise my view that art is intended to nourish, whereas entertainment is intended to amuse - the difference between food and chewing gum . Over the years I have worked with many different live bands, and privately, as an experimenter. This cassette ( released by OSR ) is my first published work since 1986 , it comprises 2 new songs - Mosaic Man and All That We Hold Most Dear, and two from the early 1980s - Love Dances Warm and The Small Get By .

Title: Joule EP

Country: USA
Price: $5.00
“Four point five songs of a warm, humble talent from Ruth Garbus (ex-Happy Birthday, responsible for a top five Sub Pop release before dipping out, and sister of the one they call tUnE-yArDs), pursuing a lithe, late spring wildflower folk-pop, built around words that feel like poetry and songs that drape over you like fresh warm sheets on a bed. Garbus paints these songs as moving targets, each track sounding slightly different from the last in a way that pulls the listener off their guard. “I Took A Walk,” recorded live, possesses a certain Lois Maffeo ca. Courtney Love quality, with this one lyric “committing a crime is my water to wine” that keeps rattling around in my head. Theres a really strong sense of arrangements here which fills “Kisserine Chalk” with woodsy mystery and whistling chorus, and elsewhere peels back to a late Brill Building sensibility, that year or two before songwriting saw its way out and the 60s took over; its not hard to think of a Harpers Bizarre or Spanky And Our Gang getting hold of “Opal Elections” and adding strings or whatnot, but what Garbus leaves us with here is a new, small world to explore independent of pre-conceived notions, asking the listener to trust her. Listener, you should (and knock the speed down to 33rpm after the last labeled song for a snippet worth hearing at a less frantic pace).” - Still Single.

Price: $14.00
“Tori Kudo and Reiko Kudo began Maher Shalal Hash Baz in the mid-80s & it has grown since into a multi-continental concern with a changing cast of true members of varying background & experience . as usual , any brief synopsis would be defective & by way of introduction you would be best advised to listen to the many extant recordings on youtube & read the many & comprehensive interviews published over the years . their first full-length record since 2009s Cest La Derniere Chanson , Hello New York was recorded in September 2014 when nearly a dozen members of Maher coalesced in New York for the occasion of a 30th anniversary gig . we holed up here at the sweltering Manual FX basement and worked for the majority of their stay on my deficient rig , joined intermittently by a gaggle of superfans like myself who couldnt pass up the opportunity to throw down a few notes on a Maher record (its unfashionable to wax autobiographical in this context but I will say that Maher was one principal light that brought me into music as a younger youngster & gave me the hope necessary to start this sort of enterprise in a dim world of hollow culture)
Maher is often represented incorrectly by the Western press , who have typically lampooned its lack of traditional musical dramaturgy as a kind of "naivist" aestheticism & its emphasis on miracular playing as a sign of its instrumentalists deficiency , and refused to see the communal nature of the group & the nonlinear relationship between Toris composition & the groups playing . in fact , what is really unusual about Maher isnt any one specific quality or principle , but the extreme reverence appreciable in the music for what is beyond words and available only in experience , and a concomittant indeterminacy on all levels , always busy in the middle : composition v. improvisation , the page v. the ear , the group v. the writer , style v. content , the beyond v. the worldly , etc... Tori is drawn to spiritual themes , with many lyrics adapted from Bible verse , not as an aesthetic conceit but as one tool for working through this life . actually , the bands Western aestheticization is ironic given the direct critical treatment Toris lyrics give to that sort of process (see "Epignosis" with its "the 60s carries weight with you // you like it better than your wife , son , brothers & sisters") ... but enough of that sort of talk . we all did our best on this revelatory rock record & I will always remember it !” - OSR.

"This Is Not What You Expect is a collection of material recorded by Hartley C. White of Queens, NY from 1984-­2009. Hartley is the progenitor of a style of music he calls “Whopazootic,” which he has described as “a non­classical music utilizing a broken rhythm". Under consideration is the entire contemporary and past landscape of time and being, from the shape of a joke to the cry of the politically disenfranchised to the observation of flowing water. When we first heard Hartleys music, we were shocked, and you will be too. No matter how many albums youve listened to today, this will be the first Who-pa­zoo­tic one." - OSR.

Format: LP

Price: $14.00
"Some will find it hard to believe that a glamrock band with a gritty urban veneer came from Texas and stuck together long enough to release this milestone record. Indeed, I was startled to learn that theyre from TX and not NYC or London. Clearly the underground music scene throughout Texas is fertile with talent and enough sociocultural diversity to support any genre, including mid-70s glamrock. Metz take on glam includes some of the associated cliches like heavy chunks of chord strokes and catchy riffs, danceable rhythms and beats, and a vocalist with some theatrical influence in the singing department. Besides the obvious, Metz bring some original flair that pushes their material over the top! Instead of the lead singer getting all the attention (he sounds like a cross between Marc Bolan and a less angry Johnny Rotten), its the two or three sassy black girls that steal the show with the best vocals (leads & harmonies) on the entire album. These streetwise babes strut along as they dish out extra servings of sex appeal during preformances, which is a scarce gender switch for glam rock. Metz also provide lots of mind-stripping guitar solos and untamed organ with hovering Lesle cabinets that occasionally drift into dark and gothic sound trips. All of the music is dance-friendly and some tracks have extended endings so you can have more time to boogie while too friend on ecstasy (note: MDMA was an underground nightclub drug around the Houston & Dallas areas during the 70s, and the drugs first market many years before psychotherapists and acid house fans realized its potential) to notice your dance partners adams apple or beastly back hair. Its an album way overdue for reissuing." - Scott "Loopden" Bubrig, ACID ARCHIVES.



"At one of these sales my partner Mark and I pulled out about 100 LPs for the grand total of like ten bucks. At ten cents a piece you can take a chance on anything that looks remotely interesting. One such score that day was an LP housed in a plain white jacket called "Metz" on the Chrome Starr label out of Houston. It had that certain look that made me want to rush home and give it a spin. As I was driving I asked Mark to pull it out of our stack and tell me what he thought it might be. It was one of those ultra thin pressings like what RCA produced in the 70s which indicated it had been pressed locally in Houston at a pressing plant known for this type of disc.
Mark pulled the LP out of the jacket and said "Damn, this thing is so thin that I can bend it in….SNAP". The LP snapped right in half and man did I get pissed. He started to try to make me feel better with "It looks like its probably a crappy Disco record"….and…"This thing cant be any good, look at those song titles". I just had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that he may have just broke what could have been a monster unknown (but very thin) slab of vinyl. I got home and ran for the super glue, carefully piecing the LP back together with the hopes of at least being able to hear what it was like. I did a poor job of putting it back together as it was hard to place the very thin edges back together properly. I threw it on the turntable and my heart sank….it was a rock LP and what appeared to be a damn good one. After two songs I called Mark and cussed him out…"It sounds like Mott The Hoople if they were from Texas" I told him…"YOU SUCK!" I screamed before slamming down the receiver. It was very difficult to listen to the LP, only being able to hear bits and pieces, but enough to know I needed to find a better copy.
My search began to find "Metz" assuming that was the name of the band. I called some of my music contacts in Houston but none of them had ever heard of the band or the LP. I called the pressing plant and they vaguely remembered the LP and told me they would look through their records and see what they could find. I spoke to a well known producer/studio owner who told me he remembered very little about it but thought Johnny Winter was involved. After a couple of months of digging I came to the conclusion that no one in the record collecting world had ever seen or heard this LP before and that Metz was the name taken by one John Metzler who had disappeared from the Houston music scene sometime in the 80s. My search petered out after hitting one brick wall after another and the LP never surfaced again until about 10 years later when my friend SB in New Orleans was able to secure a copy. Hearing it in its entirety for the first time confirmed that it was every bit as good, if not better, than I had imagined. The late 70s produced some great hard rock in the Lone Star State and way too little of it made its way to vinyl. Metz takes that hard rockin Tejas spirit to the next level by injecting the music with equal parts Glam and Dirty White Boy Funk and its about time the world got to hear it."- Rich Haupt, ROCKADELlC.

"Trembling Air, an eclectic collection of intricate, improvisatory tone poems. As pure improvisers, Bálint Szabó and Márton Kristóf have constructed a substantial body of work, including film scores, studio recordings, and a significant archive of 12z [sessionz] -- weekly improvised jams with a shifting cast of collaborators. These [sessionz] were compiled into a self-released podcast, released following their 2013 self-titled debut on Hungarian label Farbwechsel. Not to mention their live work, which is the foundation of 12zs craft and artistry. With Szabó on guitar, Kristóf on electronics, and guest member Áron Porteleki often joining on drums, they fluctuate between jagged rhythmic passages, floating moments of harmonic tension, and any other form that emerges, always chiseling structure from the chaos. Trembling Air marks another direction in 12zs work, as their first entirely electronic recording. The album was sparked by György Pálfis 2014 film Free Fall, for which it was recorded as a potential score, but stands strong independently, conjuring its own strange images." - Other People.

Title: Jream House
Format: LP
Label: Other People
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Jream House is the turbulent and spiritual debut LP of Mark Hurst aka A Pleasure, following his 2014 Extended Play digital EP on Other People. Blending mathematical composition with unrestrained studio experimentalism, the sound of A Pleasure charts a space where formative influences confront the most immediate performative impulse. Using a process of numerical transposition, the names of personally significant bands and composers are converted into drum patterns. Then Hurst lets loose, improvising around these structures with a variety of traditional and unorthodox instruments, including bass and guitar, bowed cymbals, drum machines juggled like turntables, and blowtorch on aluminum, to name a few. With his influences as starting points, he builds rhythmic structures and blasts them with walls of noise, monolithic basslines, and other jam-shrapnel. Despite the chaos and complexity of the process, the results sound neither clinical nor garbled. The tracks always find their way to an emotive melody or strong groove. Lush guitar strums and yearning keys ride the high-speed beat of "Slow Channel," which seems to soar through cloud-cover as one snaking mass. "The Order of Things" folds a cosmic guitar-part into a backdrop of heavily side-chained noise. "Arthur Russell" features a neck-snapping rimshot and crushed snare that splash up the bits of an elegiac vocal part. Through violent and idyllic atmospheres, Jream House jettisons its inspirations like landing shuttles, always in search of new ground. These are songs, not just experiments." - Other People.

Artist: TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS
Title: Live 1977-1979
Format: LP
Label: Other People
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Teenage Jesus and the Jerks began to formulate their visionary brand of aural catharsis sometime during the first half of 1977, amidst the sordid ruins of a then fully down-and-out Lower Manhattan. The mastermind behind this juggernaut of sonic libertinage was a barely pubescent but world-weary runaway who called herself Lydia Lunch. Influenced strongly by the Marquis de Sade andHenry Miller, Lunch shrewdly decided to graft the existential horror of her own writing onto harsh, atonal music after being exposed to the room-clearing live output of other contemporary rock-music deconstructionists like Suicide and Mars. With an agenda of conjuring nightmarish intensity in lieu of technical instrumental ability, Teenage Jesus instantly made the supposedly nihilistic and raw current wave of so-called Punk acts sound like slick, good-timey pop music by comparison. Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, and Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, transliterated into a blatant mockery of the increasingly tired, basic rock-band format. Posthumously, there have been numerous reissues of the primary Teenage Jesus corpus, namely the first side of the Lydia Lunch double compilation albumHysterie (CD Presents, 1986), a very incomplete anthology titled Everything (Atavistic, 1995) and Shut Up and Bleed (Cherry Red/Atavistic, 2008), which also featured Beirut Slump tracks. These less-than-fastidious documents contained reverb-laden transcriptions of the studio cuts directly from vinyl copies, as well as random live tracks of mediocre fidelity. This particular collection about to be released on Other People is meticulously edited and mastered from rare bootlegs taped during the initial 1977-1979 period of the classic band, and only one title (Crown of Thorns from January 17, 1979) has been legitimately released to date, albeit in a completely different sound quality. Almost every known Teenage Jesus and the Jerks composition appears on this compendium and Ms. Lunch herself is quite satisfied that this just might be the final nail in the coffin... If it is the sound of deliberately organized and deployed agony you are seeking, your bath has been drawn and the razor awaits." --Weasel Walter, Brooklyn, NY, June 30, 2015

Title: Mental Shake

Label: Otoroku

Price: $25.00
“Cafe OTOs tenth Otoroku release sees a return to the group that kick-started the label -- the veteran German reedsman and free-jazz pioneer Peter Brötzmann with the long-running London bass/drums partnership of John Edwards and Steve Noble. After the release of The Worse The Better, that group went on to play a series of devastating shows in Europe and to emerge as one of Brötzmanns finest working groups. Over the same period, Peter was developing a deep rapport with Jason Adasiewicz, the upstart vibraphone player from Chicago. What seems on paper like an awkward pairing reveals itself onstage and on record as a symbiotic revelation. Adasiewiczs physical attack matching Brötzmann for impact while the extended sustain of the vibes opens up an eerie space for some of Brötzmanns most fertile lyricism. The recording is from the last set of a two-day residency at Cafe OTO that brought these two groups together for an astonishing quartet. Adasiewicz and Noble struck up an immense partnership in rhythm. Edwards wrestled with a broken house bass and failing amplifier and still managed new levels of invention -- stoking the others onwards. Brötzmann was clearly energized, dancing at the side of the stage while exchanging a shattered reed. And for all the usual rhetoric of free jazz bluster and machismo, this is a meeting characterized by the joy of communal creation that makes you want to dance -- even if only in your head. Peter Brötzmann (alto and tenor sax, B-flat clarinet, Taragato); Jason Adasiewicz (vibraphone), John Edwards (double bass); Steve Noble (drums).” - Otoroku.

Artist: III (DAICHI YOSHIKAWA, PAUL ABBOTT & SEYMOUR WRIGHT)
Title: gjerhan
Format: LP
Label: Otoroku
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"III (pronounced /el/) is Daichi Yoshikawa, Paul Abbott and Seymour Wright. This recording includes two bare 20-minute excerpts from separate performances at Café OTO. Daichi Yoshikawa (feedback); Paul Abbott (drums); Seymour Wright (alto saxophone). gjerhan began from subterranea, sweat, haze and dedication emerging out of intimate and intense weekly meetings begun in 2009 -- their first, 2012 public performance, squeezed into a London basement was a sheer, vexed and exhilarating smack of organic, heterodyning ideas, and taut, low-beating lumps. Reemerge/revanish: With the economy of familiar/traditional raw tools feedback, drum-kit, alto saxophone, time, space and emotion, III move from molten musical pasts to grow future pleasures in sound. The ingredients are familiar, but the listening is not: At its heart is a still, undecorated concentration fuelling an extreme testing of limbs, language and order. This has no concern with collapsing difference into a vogueish, flattened mass-froth, but searches -- forensically, ceaselessly -- for something to chew, in the challenge of discretion and integrity or asylum in the body of its instruments. Akilsakilan learning, Doughnut: Finding, twisting and hammering out an expanding musical universe balanced only by its own logic -- III have few obvious comparisons. Their performances are consistent radical negotiations of the emotional, physical and social energies of the environments they sound out. Perfectly reasonable." - Otoroku.

“The full recording of the first meeting between Bill Orcutt (USA) and Okkyung Lee (South Korea). Individually these players have focused on an idiosyncratic approach to their chosen instruments and technique. Okkyung is one of the most singular voices to compromise the cellos classical origin, while Orcutt has spent many years developing a unique abstraction of traditional guitar blues. Live at Cafe OTO is an uncompromising combination of these individual elements and an ecstatic improvised assault of mind and sense. Okkyung Lee: cello. Bill Orcutt: guitar.180-gram LP in matte sleeve with artwork by Bill Orcutt. Limited edition of 500.” - Otoroku.

Title: Improvisations
Format: Double LP
Label: Otoroku
Country: UK
Price: $36.00
"The recordings on this double LP are taken from the first night of Roscoe Mitchells inaugural two day residency at Cafe OTO in 2012, and his first time playing with drummer Tony Marsh and double bassist John Edwards. It was one of those nights where the music electrifies the room. Everyone on edge. Everything alive with the possibilities. Although there was much talk after the concert of the group playing together again, this would sadly be the first and last time the trio would play. Tony passed away unexpectedly just a few weeks later, making this his last documented performance and a fitting tribute to a truly great drummer and percussionist. The LPs are house in two color screen-print sleeve designed by Oliver Pitt and screen-printed on archival quality card stock. High quality 180 gram vinyl pressing at Record Industry, The Netherlands. Recorded by James Dunn and John Chantler at Cafe OTO, 9th March 2012. Mixed by John Chantler. Mastered by Andreas [LUPO] Lubich at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." - Otoroku

Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"Vi Ar Alla Guds Slavar is the latest missive from the long-running duo pairing of Mats Gustafsson (The Thing, Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet, etc) and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth, Chelsea Light Moving, Dream/Aktion Unit, etc). The recordings presented here are continuous excerpts taken from the heavyweight, high volume duo sets that topped off each night of their two day residency at Cafe OTO in September 2012. Mats mostly plays a selection of amplified table-top electronics as well as some knotty soprano saxophone at the beginning of the second side whilst Thurston offers a fine example of the kind of liminal intensity he is capable of generating from his guitar complete with the low frequency/octave doubling dive-bombs that have had us replace the speakers in our fender twin twice since he relocated to London last year. The title Vi Ar Alla Guds Slavar translates as We Are All Slaves Under God and is taken from the painting by Edward Jarvis that also serves as the three colour screenprint for the LP sleeve. Printing by Patrick Wells at Heavyrock on archival quality card stock. Mixed by Robert Harder. Mastered by Andreas LUPO Lubich @ Calyx. Pressed on high quality 180 gram vinyl at Record Industry in The Netherlands. First pressing of 1000." -Ototoku.

Artist: TURNER, ROGER & YUKIHIRO ISSO
Title: Takanehishigu
Format: LP
Label: Otoroku
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“Born in 1964, Yukihiro Isso is a Japanese Noh flutist (hayashikata fuekata) from a family that has been playing this instrument since the 16th century. He received his initial instruction in flute playing from his father, Yukimasa Isso, and performed on the Noh stage for the first time at the age of nine. Beginning in his middle school years, he began listening to a variety of different kinds of music and studying new instruments including the recorder and piano. An acclaimed performer of classical Noh repertoire, Isso is also an accomplished improviser and has performed with the likes of Cecil Taylor, Peter Brötzmann, and John Zorn. Born in 1946, Roger Turner grew up among the Canterbury musical life of the 1960s with a strong jazz foundation. Since 1974 his work has been concentrated on exploring a more personal percussion language through the processes of improvisation. Solo work; collaborations with experimental rock musics and open-form song; extensive work with dance, film, and visual art; involvements in numerous jazz-based ensembles; and workshop residencies have formed part of that development. Takanehishigu is the audio documentation of the first time these artists played together. The results are a breathtaking new music that remains respectful to the individual traditions while simultaneously subverting them. Yukihiro Isso: Nohkan (Noh flute), shinobue, dengakubue, gemshorn, and recorder. Roger Turner: percussion. Recorded live at Cafe OTO on September 23, 2016, by Shaun Crook, mixed by John Chantler, and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi. Artwork by Paul Abbott. Edition of 500.” - Otoroku.

Artist: YOSHIHIDE, OTOMO
Title: Piano Solo
Format: LP
Label: Otoroku
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Recorded live at Londons Café OTO in March 2009 during Otomo Yoshihides first residency here. This is one of only a handful of solo piano performances Otomo has given where he uses the instrument as a control matrix for harmonically-rich feedback tones and devastating clusters of complex noise. First run of 500 pressed at Record Industry in The Netherlands on high-quality heavyweight vinyl. Three-color screenprinted sleeve designed by Paul Abbott and printed by Pat at Heavyrock Screenprinting on archival-quality card. Mastered and cut by Andreas "Lupo" Lubich at 45rpm. Otomo Yoshihide is one of the most important musicians of the Japanese underground/avant-garde. He moves between free jazz, noise, improvisation, composition, and the unclassifiable with a generosity that opens up the possibilities for expression in all of the constellations with which hes involved. After the earthquake/tsunami struck his native Fukushima in early 2011, Otomo played very little outside of Japan, dedicating a considerable amount of energy to the relief efforts there, including the annual international Project Fukushima concerts. He played at Café OTO in 2013 for two stunning multi-day residencies, including a revision of the remarkable piano solo captured on this LP. Influenced by his father, an engineer, Otomo began making electrical devices such as a radio and an electronic oscillator in his early teens, and his first experience of creating music was by making sound collages using open-reel tape recorders while still in junior high school. Soon after entering high school, he formed a band which played rock and jazz, with Otomo on guitar. It wasnt long, however, before he became a free-jazz aficionado, listening to artists like Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy and Derek Bailey; and hearing music, both on disk and at concerts, by Japanese free jazz artists including the great alto sax player Kaoru Abe and guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi. In 1990, Otomo started what was to become Ground Zero. Until it disbanded in March 1998, the band was at the core of his musical creativity, while it underwent several changes in style and membership. Since Ground Zero, Otomo has embraced minimal improvisation, film music and the jazz/big-band conceptions of his new jazz quartet/quintet/orchestra." - Otoroku.

Title: Quintet/Sextet
Format: LP
Label: Otoroku
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"The final night of Otomo Yoshihides and Sachiko Ms first residency at Londons Café OTO in 2009 saw the pair joined by the long-running trio of Evan Parker, John Edwards, Tony Marsh and special guest John Butcher. Butcher played duos with both Otomo and Sachiko and joined the quintet for a rousing sextet: stunning twin saxophone interplay, the unparalleled openness of the Marsh/Edwards rhythm pairing, Sachikos deft high-frequency interventions and Otomos guitar at the center -- moving between abrasive textural invention and suggestive single note runs of ever-shifting melody. Otomo Yoshihide is one of the most important musicians of the Japanese underground/avant-garde. He moves between free jazz, noise, improvisation, composition and the unclassifiable with a generosity that opens up the possibilities for expression in all of the constellations with which hes involved. After the earthquake/tsunami struck his native Fukushima in early 2011, Otomo played very little outside of Japan, dedicating a considerable amount of energy to the relief efforts there, including the annual international Project Fukushima concerts. He played Londons Café OTO in 2013 for two stunning multi-day residencies, including a revision of the remarkable piano solo he first performed in 2009 and a ripping quintet with John Butcher, Mats Gustafsson, Guillaume Viltard and Mark Sanders. Sachiko M has been active as a sampler player since 1994. Early in her career she was involved in the cut-up and "plunderphonic" (or "plagiaristic") sampling movements. In 1998, in a drastic departure from those approaches, she originated the revolutionary method she uses to this day -- manipulating the samplers internal test tones. With the 2000 release of Sine Wave Solo, her extreme solo recording consisting entirely of sine waves, Sachiko M suddenly became the focus of intense interest on the international scene, including European music festivals and Britains Wire magazine. Since then, shes been active on an irregular basis in a number of projects -- including the experimental electronic music duo Filament, the electronics trio I.S.O., a duo with Toshimaru Nakamura, and the duo Cosmos with Ami Yoshida -- in addition to collaborating with various musicians from other countries. Evan Parker has been a consistently innovative presence in British free music since the 1960s. Parker played with John Stevens in the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, experimenting with new kinds of group improvisation and held a long-standing partnership with guitarist Derek Bailey. The two formed the Music Improvisation Company and later Incus Records. He also has tight associations with European free improvisations -- playing on Peter Brötzmanns legendary Machine Gun session (1968), with Alexander Von Schlippenbach and Paul Lovens (a trio that continues to this day), Globe Unity Orchestra, Chris McGregors Brotherhood Of Breath, and Barry Guys London Jazz Composers Orchestra (LJCO). John Edwards has played with Sunny Murray, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, Lol Coxhill, Peter Brötzmann, Mulatu Astatke, and many others. Tony Marsh was a vital presence in Londons improvised music scene right up until his shocking passing in April 2012. John Butcher is a saxophonist of rare grace and power, who has expanded the vocabulary of the saxophone far beyond the conventions of jazz and other musics, to encompass a staggering range of harmonics, multiphonics, overtones, percussive sounds, and electronic feedback. But his playing is far more than merely an array of special effects: its characterized by an intensity that propels it into strange new places that are both incredibly beautiful and deeply exhilarating. Otomo Yoshihide (guitar), Sachiko M (sampler), Evan Parker (saxophones), John Edwards (double bass), Tony Marsh (drums), John Butcher (saxophones, side B). First pressing of 500. Three-color screenprinted sleeve designed by Paul Abbott and printed by Pat @ Heavyrock Screenprinting on archival-quality card. Mastered and cut by Andreas "Lupo" Lubich at Calyx. Pressed at Record Industry in The Netherlands on high-quality heavyweight vinyl." - Otoroku.

Over the years, the band has taken that ball of blare they were initially known for and pulled it apart strand by strand and wire by wire to get to the transparent core of their sound while still retaining their disturbing qualities. Their past two full lengths, 2007s Through the Panama and 2010s City of Straw were obvious successful in this exploration, but Future Accidents really nails it in giving up the honest-to-god barebones goods. A rawer sprawl into the pregnant nowhere sound has yet to be waxed by these gents and ifn they ever do top this, Ill just utter the words I saw on the back of that pick-up truck the other day, HOT DAMN!" - Tony Rettman; Resident Blowhard, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

"In the late 60s, a bunch of mysterious psychedelic exploitation albums were released by the budget Crown label in the U.S. Issued under different band names (The Firebirds, Underground Electrics, 31 Flavors, etc.), they were recorded by an anonymous group of studio musicians. Hair by 31 Flavors is the counterpart to Light My Fire by The Firebirds. Along with demented raw garage covers of "Hair" and "Aquarius," it contains some of the heaviest, fuzzed-out exploitation sounds ever committed to vinyl. You can hear echoes of Blue Cheer, Hendrix and Sabbath, featuring proto-doom, heavy-psych bombs like "Distortions of Darkness." - Out-Sider.

Title: Out of the Bachs
Format: LP
Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“60s garage-psych moody monster! Out of The Bachs was originally released in 1968 as a private pressing of 150 copies; its one of the rarest USA 60s garage/teenbeat albums ever. The band consisted of five young kids from Chicago, regulars at local teen dances, who decided to release an album for their fans before splitting up. Recorded and mixed in just ten hours at a makeshift studio, Out of The Bachs offers 12 amazing self-penned songs with a sound ahead of its time. Pure teenage-angst vocals, crashing Rickenbackers, fuzz outbursts, killer moody tracks... Sadly, all previous reissues of the album failed to capture the true sound of the original, until the Time-Lag label reissued it in 2011 with remastered sound from a pristine original vinyl copy. This reissue uses the same audio master as the out-of-print Time-Lag edition. File next to The Rising Storm, The Fantastic Dee-Jays, The Savages. Includes insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos.” - Out-Sider.

Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"The Bitter Seeds were one of the pioneering bands from the early Monterey music scene. Led by flashy guitar player Leonard "Pooch" Paschini, they were active from 1966 to 1970, gigging regularly at such legendary venues as Bulls Eye Tavern, Longshoremens Hall, The Matrix, and The Fillmore and sharing stages with the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Iron Butterfly, and Steppenwolf. In 1967, The Bitter Seeds recorded their only 45, issued on Rowena Records as The Rock Shop to avoid confusion with The Seeds. State of Your Mind/Is That Your Halo is a brutal garage-psych double-sider. The following year the group recorded four studio tracks that have remained unreleased until now. These are perfect examples of the transition from R&B-garage to early psychedelic sounds that many San Francisco ballroom bands experienced at the time. An exciting find for any lover of lost West Coast psychedelic sounds. For this Bitter Seeds/Rock Shop retrospective, Out-Sider has also unearthed some wild live recordings from 1966 with good sound quality. Includes four-page insert with liner notes, photos, and memorabilia. Remastered sound." - Out-Sider.

Title: From Lemon Drops to Acid Rock
Format: Double LP
Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $35.00
"From the ashes of 60s garage band The Lemon Drops comes power trio Buzzsaw with their loud heavy-psych sound. In the late 60s, The Lemon Drops, one of the finest garage-psych bands from Chicago (of "I Live in the Springtime" fame), relocated to the West Coast, where they gigged around and tried to secure a record contract. After a three-day "strawberry acid party" at manager Dan Herrons mansion, the original band disintegrated. And thats when power trio Buzzsaw was born, featuring Eddie and Gary Weiss (both ex-Lemon Drops) on guitar and drums respectively and Rick Fertel on bass. Buzzsaw was the perfect vehicle for Eddie Weiss (whose use of fuzz and distortion was the trademark sound of The Lemon Drops) to push his guitar and effects pedals to the limit. The trio used to visit Star Hill, Neil Youngs old sawmill in La Honda, where they rehearsed and wrote songs. The photo used for the front cover of this collection was taken there. In 1971, Max Weiss (Creedence Clearwater Revivals manager) expressed interest in the band, so Buzzsaw entered Ampex Studios in San Francisco (the place where CCR had recorded "Suzie Q") to lay down some tracks. They also recorded some material at Pacific Sound Studios. All of these recordings were produced by Roger Weiss, the original producer of The Lemon Drops and co-owner of Rembrandt Records. Sadly, Buzzsaw only released one 45 during their short lifespan. And it was a frustrating release, as it included a recording from The Lemon Drops era on the A-side backed with a new song which didnt reflect the real sound of the band on the B-side. That 45 went nowhere, Buzzsaw split, and the recordings they did at Ampex and Pacific Studios remained unreleased until 1995, when some of them were included on Collectables From Lemon Drops to Acid Rock CD. Out-Siders double vinyl retrospective includes all the tracks from the 1995 From Lemon Drops to Acid Rock CD plus some amazing acetates and previously unreleased master tapes. The music is orgasmic 71 heavy psych/proto-grunge in the style of Hendrix and Blue Cheer with killer fuzz-wah guitar and melodic vocals. Eddies guitar sound is just insane... despite the vintage 71 date, some of his playing would not be out of place on a High Rise or Ty Segall album. Remastered from the original tapes and acetates. Liner notes by original producer Roger Weiss." - Out-Sider.

Title: Homegrown
Format: LP
Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Out-Sider present the first reissue of Homegrown (1982) by Cal. This is a totally under-the-radar US private pressing from 1982 with 60s and 70s influenced psychedelic hard-rock full of distorted guitar and freaky synths with some mellowed-out folky moments. Cal - also known as "Cal Rock & Roll" - was a band formed in the mid 70s in New York by some veteran musicians from the club scene. The band is made up of Larry Calabrese on guitar & vocals, Andy Barone on bass, Jerry Joly on drums/vocals and Jeffrey Gaer on keyboards. Famous for their powerful live shows - one of their stellar moments was opening for Leslie West and Mountain - Cal secured a faithful fan base, especially among the biker crowd. In 1980, they recorded Homegrown, their only album. As the title suggests, it was self-produced by the band and recorded by Larry at his 8-track home studio. But unlike other similar private albums, theres nothing amateur here. This is a perfectly recorded & played effort, featuring well-crafted songs. Theres lot of loud distorted guitar, Hammond, analog synths and some Doors influence on the vocals, especially on the lysergic "Couragous Cat". Homegrown was released in 1982 in an edition of 2000, most of which were discarded due to pressing faults. Also, the album was mastered at lower speed. This reissue has remastered sound with corrected pitch/speed. Soon after, Larry met Todd Rundgren at a recording studio and he expressed interest in the band and some of their songs. Famous record label Sugarhill were also interested in adding Cal to their roster but nothing came of it in the end. So Homegrown vanished into obscurity until some original copies were discovered by psych dealers and collectors in the 90s. "Despite the 1982 release date, this upstate NY album feels like vintage 70s stoner music, its mostly mild hard-rock with some psych and prog moves" -- Aaron Milenski (The Acid Archives) File next to other psych misfits such like T Kail, D.R. Hooker, Marcus, Michael Angelo. Insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos." - Out-Sider.

Artist: CHILDREN OF THE MUSHROOM
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Though they only released one 45 during their existence, Children of the Mushroom epitomized the psychedelic garage sound coming out of California in the late 60s. Formed in Thousand Oaks by Jerry McMillen and Dennis Swanson, they evolved from a mid-60s teen-beat band called The Captives. In 1967, they became Children of the Mushroom, a name which reflected their new psychedelic sound and image. The following year, they caught the attention of a couple of young producers, who signed the band for a 45 release. Recorded in 1968 for Soho Records, August Mademoiselle/You Cant Erase a Mirror is one of the masterpieces from the first psychedelic era: feedback, fuzz, organ, and mysterious vocals. Soon after, the band incorporated a new guitar player, shortened their name to The Mushroom and started playing in a more heavy psych vein, in a similar style to Iron Butterfly. This retrospective album includes both tracks from their monster 45, with sound taken from the master recordings, plus previously unreleased tracks by The Mushroom, recorded in 1968. These are raw, lo-fi home recordings with lots of fuzz guitar and organ. Its the sound of a psychedelic band in 1968 playing free and wild, without any producer or record label executive telling them what to do. An incredible document. Remastered sound. Fold-out colour insert with liner notes, interview with the band members, and rare photos." - Out-Sider.

Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“Out-Sider Records present the first ever legit reissue of Crystalaugurs Terranaut, originally released in 1975. This reissue is done with the bands involvement. Crystalaugur were formed by four young ex-pats attending school in Singapore in the early 70s: Howard Kukla, Kim Bengs, Bryan Hall and Guy Rittger. For most of them this was their first serious musical experience. Terranaut was recorded on a 4-track machine and subsequently released by the band in a private edition of 200 copies on their own Warped Records imprint. Terranaut is ultimate underground, lo-fi, psychedelic rock. Loose feel, raw sound, spacey prog-funk touches, sound effects and some proto-DIY, pre-punk vibes which bring to mind Velvet Underground or avant-garage 70s Cleveland bands like Pere Ubu but also hard-rockers ala Pink Fairies or Stray. Bootlegged many times over the years, this is the first ever legit reissue of this "lost-in-time" psychedelic artefact. Includes insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Got Kinda Lost, Ugly Things), explaining the fascinating story behind Crystalaugur and debunking many myths and false rumors about the band and their only album. Cargill says, "Terranaut is a rollicking, rumbling and lightly ramshackle bomb of cosmic teenage hard rock informed by an infatuation with the early rumblings of progressive rock (given a proto-punk edge by the discontent of the groups constituents)." Featured in Hans Pokoras Record Collector Dreams book with the maximum scale rarity.” - Out-Sider.

"After his stint with Fapardokly, HMS Bounty and Mu, Merrell Fankhauser released his first solo album in 1976. Containing songs written a year earlier while Merrell and violin player Mary Lee were living in the jungle of Maui, this is a brilliant set of spiritual folk-rock and light orchestrated pop. The album was recorded at various Hollywood studios, initially sponsored by a producer from George Harrisons Dark Horse label. In fact, Harrison was so impressed with Merrells songs that he expressed interest in playing slide guitar on "On Our Way to Hana." Sadly, due to internal problems, Dark Horse backed off and Merrell found himself without a label to release the album. Finally, a couple of friends from Maui released it on the small Maui Music label. On the recordings, Merrell and Mary Lee were joined by several studio musicians, among them drummer Bill Berg, who had played on Bob Dylans Blood On the Tracks (1975). This reissue of Fankausers self-titled debut, which has also been reissued as The Maui Album and Maui, features master tape sound, tracks restored to their original running order, original artwork, and an insert with in-depth liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost), presenting the most complete written story about Merrells musical career." - Out-Sider.

The album consists of just one long freak-out jam divided in two sides: raw basement sound, acid guitar, stoned vocals, keyboards and loud drums, similar to early Soft Machine, Pink Floyd at their most free-form phase, or Can. Newly-remastered sound, insert with photos and liner notes." - Out-Sider.

Originally released in 1980 as a private edition of 300 copies, Time and Money finds outlaw rock hero Ray "McKay" Pierle abandoning the rural rock sounds of his famous 1978 Into You album for a more hard rock approach. Twin guitar attacks charged with fuzz-wah and catchy songs full of memorable hooks and melodic vocals. Recorded mostly at Ray Pierles homemade studio and mixed by Moe Whittemore at the legendary 700 West studios in Indiana, resulting in a fabulous, warm analog sound.” - Out-Sider.

Title: At the Waleback
Format: LP
Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“Out-Sider Records present the first ever vinyl reissue of Robbie The Werewolfs At The Waleback, originally released in 1964. With his long red hair and matching beard, Robbie The Werewolf - a folksinger of the frantic variety with a fetish for monsters - was a striking performer with a manic stage presence, acting out his songs as much as singing them. His set consisted of his original songs and uniquely reworked versions of folk standards, played on a beat-up twelve-string guitar. This inspired some of the most bizarre songs ever committed to vinyl: listen to "Count Dracula" and its proto-psychedelic, amazing echo effects or the insane DIY rocker "Rockin Werewolf". It was at The Wale Back in L.A one heady night in 1964, that Robbies solo act was captured for posterity and released as a tiny private pressing. A few years later, Robbie Robison would become a founding member of L.A psychedelic band Clear Light. But thats another story. This incredibly strange music is championed by lovers of the wonderful & weird such as Jello Biafra. At The Waleback is a time capsule to the post-beatnik, pre-psychedelic/hippie scene from L.A. Includes insert with detailed liner notes by Gray Newell (Ugly Things) and Alan Brackett (Peanut Butter Conspiracy). "This obscenely rare disc stars Robbie Robison plucking an acoustic guitar and singing kooky tunes about Halloween characters, sex, drinking and drugs that were quite radical for its day." - Beverly Paterson (Its Psychedelic Baby). LP housed in an old-school style tip-on sleeve.

In 1969, the band recorded a demo at Pacific High Recordings in San Francisco, at the same time as the Grateful Dead were recording their classic Working Mans Dead album there. The demo was in fact a fully-finished album of bombastic psychedelia, acid-rock and proto-prog with loud fuzz-wah guitars, long tracks, crazy percussion and killer flute.

A mystery for many years (all the band members used pseudonyms on the album credits), the band seemed impossible to track down... until now. Formed in 1974 in Houston, Stud featured the killer lead guitar of 17-year-old genius Tim Williams, the brutal Rickenbacker bass attacks of Paul Eakin, and the solid-as-a-rock drumming of George Lasher. The chemistry was born when they first starting played together, and after many rehearsals they decided they were ready to record their first album. So they entered the Barons Studios in Rosenberg, and Stud was the result. Powerful hard rock ("A Woman Like You" and "Jim/Blues"), killer boogie-rock ("Captain Boogie"), hard psychedelic jams (the 13 minutes of "Stud"), and progressive hard rock on the impressive "The War Song." File next to Morly Grey and Incredible Hog. Remastered sound.

This Out-sider reissue is taken from the remix version, as it was always believed to be "hotter" than the original pressing.

Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"After more than 30 years hidden in a dusty storage unit, Out-Sider present Eliminate Hate, the previously unreleased album from one of the most enigmatic bands from the Texas psychedelic scene, Wolfgang. An unusual blend of 60s garage-punk, Texas psychedelia (think 13th Floor Elevators or Golden Dawn), The Seeds, The Misunderstood, late era Velvet Underground, 70s era Rolling Stones and 70s pre-punk swagger. Awesome distorted steel guitar with super snotty vocals. Wolfgang were a young band from Pasadena, Texas, discovered by legendary Texas mogul C.L. Millburn. Little is known about the band and what exactly happened to them after recording this album. But, they were led by the great "Wolf", Mike Long (Stone Axe, Josefus) and they also featured an unusual steel guitar player whose electrified sound recalls Glenn Campbell at his best. In 1970, Wolfgang recorded a set of songs written by Milburn, originally intended as demos to secure a deal with a bigger company. Eight songs were taped using Milburns trusty Sony two-track reel-to-reel, the same one he used to record childhood friend Townes Van Zandt in the late 60s. The major company deal never came so the tapes were stored at the Sea Ell archives for many years and Wolfgang disappeared in the mist of time. Three tracks from the Wolfgang sessions appeared on a compilation called The History Of Texas Garage Bands In The 60s Volume 1: The Sea Ell Label Story, released in 1994 by the Collectables label. They were credited to "The Wolves". Several years later, Michael Greisman from Cicadelic Records discovered the complete Wolfgang recordings while investigating the Sea Ell tape archive, and Milburn revealed to him the real history behind the Wolfgang project. The complete recordings have remained unreleased until now. Master tape sound; Insert with liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost)." - Out-Sider.

"Grim Tower is the collaborative project of Stephen McBean (vocals/guitar/synths) and Imaad Wasif (vocals/guitar). The album, called Anarchic Breezes, was written around the central idea of a new acoustic death folk, yet could be heard as equal parts Harry Smith and Harry Pussy. Both songwriters, Canadians now based in Los Angeles, come together on Anarchic Breezes to explore a mutual interest in the darker traditions of song and detuning found in the American primitive archives. The album features the ancillary rhythm section of Rob Barbato (bass) and Dan Allaire (drums), also L.A. musicians with roots deep in the modern psych movement. Anarchic Breezes was recorded by S. McBean at his home studio, with additional recording by Rob Campanella at the Jonestown Studios. It contains nine originals and one cover, the obscure Leaving My Old Life Behind by Jonathan Halper as featured in Kenneth Angers Puce Moment. It was mixed by Mark Nevers (Will Oldham, Silver Jews, Calexico, Vic Chesnutt) at Beech House Studios in Nashville. The two voices on this album serve as mediums to a yet unheard music.

"...Ethnic Music Classics: 1925-48. Outernational Records is pleased to announce the fourth volume of this legendary series, now available on vinyl. This series of archival 78 transfers was originally released in 1995 on CD only. This volume from Central Asia has to be one of the most revelatory volumes yet presented. Concentrating on a singular geographic region, this volume unearths some of the rarest recorded artifacts of music from the Central Asian countries of Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Caucasus region, Tadjikistan, Azerbaijan and others. Of all the recent excavation projects inspired by our voracious musical culture, none is more fascinating than Pat Contes Secret Museum series for Yazoo. Until now, a Western listeners familiarity with ethnic music from the distant past has depended on unsexy field recordings of relatively recent vintage, produced in a spirit of near-scientific inquiry by anthropologically-minded musicologists. When the commercial record business really began to expand in the late 20s however, just about every national style of music was sought out and captured for a growing marketplace. This was true "world music," dressed in its Sunday best perhaps as performed by ambitious locals, but still more vital than the academic, folklorist approach that followed. Just as Harry Smith compiled early commercial blues and country records for his monumentally influential Anthology Of American Folk Music, so Conte has gathered even rarer 78s from all over the globe. Thanks to excellent remastering, we can hear vividly how an ensemble sounded in India or Japan more than a half-century ago or a klezmer orchestra right before the Nazis destroyed that bit of local culture. Its like owning your own time machine. Gorgeous gatefold Stoughton tip-on sleeves with newly-discovered vintage color photos not available on the original CD issue.

There are only 2 words printed anywhere on this CD (besides the groups name): "live" and "1972". Say no more." - FE. "Live material from 1972. This band was a major inspiration to groups like High Rise, Kousokuya, Acid Mothers Temple and Keiji Haino. The absolute peak of Japanese psychedelia." Official description: "Early hand-held audience recordings (dig those tape flips!) from 1972. Frequently compared in sound and spirit to the Velvets and The Dead, for this slogged-out set Hawkwind may be more appropiate. Play it loud enough and youll think you are there, holding the mic..." - Over Level.

"Originally inspired by both the DIY ethic of the punk movement and the likes of Throbbing Gristle and File Under Pop, two friends Nag and Bendle decided to form The Door And The Window in March 79. They played with the Pop Group, Scritti Politti, Delta Five, Swell Maps and Raincoats. The line-up of the band was always fluid and sometime members included Fritz (23 Skidoo), Dennis Burns (ATV/Good Missionaries), Grant Showbiz (The Fall) and Giblet (49 Americans). In late 1979, Mark Perry, disillusioned by the constraints and expectations of Alternative TV joined the band as druumer and co-songwriter. "The punk movement had showed that to make music you didnt need to have first acquired some musical understanding and/or instrumental dexterity. Understanding that music has no unbreakable rules, and then proving this by breaking them, is a fine thing. But Nag and Bendle went further -- they refused to learn what the rules were in the first place. This lack of musical pretension is what still separates them from the all-too-knowing purveyors of whats called "experimental music". The Door And The Window were the true experimenters. They had the courage to skip all the theory and just pick up the instruments, to see what would happen." -- Igor. This CD complies for the first time on CD their album, singles and compilation appearances and contains sleeve notes from Nag, Bendle and Mark Perry." - Overground. Includes the LP, their first 2 EPs Dont Kill Colin and Production Line (featuring the track I Hate Sound which was the inspiration for the title of the I Hate The Pop Group comp), CCH from the Ankst In My Pants double 7⿝ on Deleted and Number One Entertainer from the awesome Weird Noise EP on Fuck Off records. A true classic in the DIY underground - very highly recommended!!

"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN - I am most pleased to announce that despite decades of rumors to the contrary.... RAVEN LIVES!!!! After he recorded and pressed 300 copies of the legendary "Back to OHIO BLUES" LP in 1975 at Columbus, Ohios legendary Owl Studios, (of which you are now holding the only LEGITIMATE reissue) he split for California and later joined the Armed Forces and ended up in Europe, recording what he calls Basement tapes. Raven (he prefers his real name be kept anonymous for now) still writes songs and goofs off alot in his studio. According to family sources, hes been working with a few people on ( Believe this or not RAVEN BACK TO OHIO BLUES TWO ). So when recently informed of the Mythical status of this LP of 30-some years ago,(which sells for well over $IOOO a copy), he laughed heartily. Makes sense considering that back in the day he NEVER SOLD A SINGLE COPY ; it was a pure vanity press which he made to give away to friends and whoever cared to listen!! and so his amusement is certainly understandable. Recorded with the help of musician friends who never performed live together, only during these studio sessions. Raven is one of the classic D.I.Y. characters who never really had much use for the "Rock N Roll Dream Machine" of being a rockstar. He made the music because it was INSIDE of him & needed to be expressed, the true measure of all forms of genius (in my "Hummel" opinion). Like a shark has to swim to breathe, Raven had to record his honest gut-wrenching creations, perhaps exorcising his demons onto wax one could say. Anyone who has already heard this amazing Psyched-out Blues Rock classic KNOWS just what a beast he unleashed on an unsuspecting world, and now YOU dear reader have an opportunity to hear for yourself the awesome angst -driven RAW POWER that is "Back To Ohio Blues". One question many of you may have is, "Is there MORE of this stuff yet unreleased?" and the answer is... YES!!! A release of this material is also in the offing so keep your ears peeled for a future Raven release too! Personally I cant wait, and I consider being one to help spread this Good News a true honor. Its great to know Raven is alive & well and again ready to spring his unique sounds upon an unwary world! - hopefully this time around, the world is ready." - Mike "Rep" Hummel/Old Age/No Age.

Artist: ALPHA STRATEGY/ PROJEKT STINKA
Title: Muck
Format: LP
Label: Ownness
Country: Canada
Price: $10.00
"Featuring Projekt STINKA (Hana Lundiaková, Czech Republic) and Alpha Strategy (Rory Hinchey, Canada), the Muck EP split offers singular, off-kilter pop from the new projects of these two varied artists. Hana Lundiakovás graceful accordion playing and deep, unrestrained vocals in her native Czech provide the foundations for a perfectly realized pair of folk-inspired, yet pop-flavored songs. Having busied herself for over 10 years playing accordion in diverse Czech punk outfits such as Redbeard, Tři sestry, and Treněr Norủ, along with keyboards in experimental group Kaspar von Urbach, STINKA is Lundiakovás first project under her own direction. Here, she is joined by Martin Černý (Redbeard) who lends his production talents, bass and guitar work, all with a definite Morricone-esque flair. Author of the critically acclaimed experimental prose collection Vrhnout (2010), journalist, editor, mother, and visual artist, Hana Lundiaková continues forward with a chaotic production schedule. Current activities include a forthcoming body of her erotic literature, an illustrated childrens book, and further live performances in the Czech Republic and abroad. Utilizing a combination of primitive oscillating circuits, vintage synthesizers, shouted vocals, and loops lifted from 1960s schlager, Alpha Strategy delivers music which is volatile and convulsive, yet meticulously arranged.." -Ownness. Incredible cover artwork from Graham Lambkin.

Title: OZ Days
Format: Double CD
Label: OZ
Country: Worlds Leading Terrorist State
Price: $20.00
"New CD reissue of the super-rare 1973 2LP set commemorating the Oz Days benefit festival for the owner of Tokyos legendary Oz Rock Cafe, which had been shut down after one too many drug busts. (Japrocksampler). Without a single doubt, this is one of the holy grails of the Japanese early seventies lysergic psych scene, together with Speed Glue & Shinki, Sato Masahiko & Soundbreakers and People/Ceremony. Privately released in a tiny edition on the Oz Records label way back in 1973, the original artifact was and is till this day the only legitimate recording on vinyl to feature the Rallizes and Acid Seven, in addition to a side each from Minami Masato and the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers. Each of the four bands has a whole side to their disposal onto which they were allowed to open up the sonic floodgates to Valhalla. The music is completely stellar, mind-boggling and just jaw-droppingly great, leaving you, the listener, gasping for air on several moments while spinning this disc since your vital organs will just forget to function properly upon being exposed to this archeological sonic gem. Kosugis clitter-clatter Fluxus-induced ramshackle psychedelic drone unit the Taj Mahal Travelers put down a stunning outer-worldly and almost transcendental performance, and the Rallizes venture into an ephedrine soaked sub-linear universe of ear ripping feedback and slowed down stroboscopic madness. Authentic packaging, with hand-stamped outer bag and gatefold insert. The Les Rallizes Denudes and Taj Mahal Travellers sides have been briefly reissued before -- heres the complete picture!" New, much lower price.. Highly recommended!

Price: $14.00
"Split between Fasenuova (Spain) and Angeldust (USA). Fasenuova is conceived by Ernesto Avelino and Roberto Lobo in year 2006 under the names Hegemonía or Goodbye. Active almost secretly since early 90s, making use of synthesizers and modulators. Dynamic rough waves go along drum-machine generated beats. The lyrics, all of them in spanish bring you to the most bizarre and surrealistic corners of your brain, thru the melodic cricked vocals of frontman Ernesto Avelino. Angeldust is formed by three characters in the greyest warehouse in the american East Coast: Robert Francisco, Nate Davis and Jacob Anodide. Defenitely a noise industrial band has only released cassettes and CDRs up until the dates. Has toured Europe, Spain and the US extensively. They spit out intense feedback, fuzzadelic howls, drum-machine malfunction and string instruments build from different kinds of junk, always accompanied of the gnarliest lyrics. Aggressive and extremely wild. Record cover consists in a disco bag, one ink silk-screened cover with drawing by Robert Francisco. Limited to 250 copies in black, hand numbered and 250 copies in white, also hand-numbered. Art by: Robert Francisco

"Josetxo Grieta was the fusion of Josetxo Anitua, Mattin and Iñigo Eguillor. This art assault group based in Bilbao (Basque Country) had been confusing minds all over the iberian peninsula, a provocation through performance acts, deep fried computer electronics, psychological noise, etc. Using random techniques and creating awkwardness wherever they went whenever they wanted to. This LP, their first and only release on vinyl and our "official" release number 13 was hand-crafted, analogically mastered and only 300 copies have been pressed on solid black vinyl. Misteriously lost in the mail for months until June 2008. Josetxo Grieta disbanded in year 2008 after the death of Josetxo Anitua. So this record is dedicated to him. Art by: Arnau Sala" -Ozonokids

"20 minutes shared between Weirding Module and Arnau Sala, limited to 100. This one has taken a while. W.M. is a master at twirling frecuencies, making endless psychedelic loops out of foggy synthesizer grooves. Just like walking into a smokey cave and finding out youre over the edge to outer space. My songs in this one are mostly generated thru internal feedback and lots of oscillator fuzz, strong classic industrial reminiscences it ends up getting kind of weird. Even vocals in one of the songs in a sort of paranoid-creep-teenager kind of way. It never really gets too harsh. Covers are two inks silk-screened on black cardboard with a little paper insert." -Ozozokids
