Artist: 3/3
Title: S/T
Format: Double CD
Label: P-Vine
Country: Japan
Price: $40.00
"Double CD reissue of this Japanese underground rock classic, exclusively available on P-vine. Originally released in Japan, 1975; reissued on LP on Shadoks in 2007. Disc 1 features the original 3/3 album (recorded 1974-5), plus 2 previously unpublished bonus tracks from the same timespan. Disc 2 features all previously unreleased live performances, recorded 1976-77 (all pre-Friction). Packaged in a gatefold mini-LP sleeve, with multiple inserts -- amazing package overall. "3/3 are Reck (guitar, vocals), Higo Hiroshi (bass) and Chiko Hige (drums). The name was inspired by a Japanese comic (4/4). In February 1975, 3/3 (Sanbun No San) released this album in a tiny pressing of 15 copies only to get a record deal. The cover was homemade and the recording sounds live but without audience. The music is ultra heavy guitar-dominated psychedelic rock like a mixture of Blue Cheer/Randy Holden/MC5 and early punk/new wave bands. The sound quality is mediocre but the music is a blaster. 3/3 has never released another recording. Both Reck and Hige then moved to New York where they stayed for over a year and played with James Chance & The Contortions, Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus & The Jerks) and others (No New York movement). They returned to Japan in 1978 to start a new group which became very famous: Friction. In 1979 Friction appeared on a compilation and in 1980 they recorded their first album. Friction released more than 10 albums in Japan. Friction has certainly had a heavy influence on the late 1970s Japanese punk and new wave scene. Reck is again active on the Tokyo scene and has teamed up with Haino Keiji and hardcore drummer Pill, with whom he performs under the name Head Rush. This album of 3/3 is the rarest underground album ever released in Japan." Number 43 in Japrocksamplers Top 50." - P-Vine

To be brief, Kosugi is one of the most important and influential Japanese experimental avant-gardists, alongside the likes of Yasunao Tone, Toshi Ichiyanagi & Yuji Takahashi.

Artist: VIRGIN INSANITY
Title: Illusion of Maintenance Man
Format: CD
Label: P-Vine
Country: Japan
Price: $23.50
Japanese-only CD edition of the lone album (at the time) from 1971 by this TX group - 200 copies pressed, recently reissued in very limited form on LP by Destijl. This P-Vine CD comes w/ 7 bonus tracks (from the same sessions?) released for the first time. Immaculate mini-LP jacket packaging, with booklet of liner notes (Japanese) and lyrics (English/Japanese). Heavy.      Destijls description of the album: "Exact / legit repro of an unbelievably / unassumingly great / rare rec from TX, circa 71.  4 kids (one chick fatale) stoned / alone and aware of the big things. Tempted, yet devoted only to the shaft of light extending from the loin of god, on which we will all eventually sit, that slowly rises and lifts us towards the heavens... for the fan of gripped mind / dropped jaws, this is the regal beagle; austere / smart / aware vibes that slowly imply the king of American folk privates. Its connection within the deep timbre of the  private / psych / folk family tree of references is hazy, but perhaps the dropped names of Arthur Lee Harper, Pete Fine, Fenner / Leland / OBrien, Timmothy, the Bachs will work for the astute customer."

Title: Toad Frog & Fish Friends/The Odometer Suite
Format: CD
Label: P-Vine
Country: Japan
Price: $23.50
"After releasing Illusion of Maintenance Man in 1971, Virgin Insanity evidently went on to record 2 more albums that never saw the light of day: Toad Frog & Fish Friends, also from 1971, and The Odometer Suite from 1973. This Japanese-only CD conveniently compiles the 2 together and throws on 2 bonus tracks of new 2005 recordings by the currently revitalized group. In a similar style to Illusion, but perhaps more freaked out, this is beautifully shambolic folk-rock from the edge of time, with parts of Toad Frog coming across like Texas answer to the Godz. The Odometer Suite is a lot more 73 than 71 (guess that "makes sense") - the naivete is a little wobbly for todays sophisticates. But the now easily achievable completeness that P-vine makes possible with these 2 CDs is hard to beat." - FE.

Title: Nocturnal Earthworm Stew
Format: CD
Label: Pacemaker
Country: Canada
Price: $15.00
"An incredible pioneering electronic album recorded in the early 1970s, from the first Canadian artist signed to Island Records. Serious headphone music made under the influence of Stockhausen, John Cage, Ornette Coleman, Stravinsky, Frank Zappa, Weather Report, Charles Ives and others -- and with a sound thats often compared to that of early Eno and the first two Kraftwerk albums. Indefinable compositions integrate the earliest of portable synthesizers (ARP 2600 and EMS AKS) with acoustic instruments (violin, cello, dulcimer, electric violin, electric guitar), found sounds (short-wave radio transmissions and a summer thunderstorm) and random objects (instant coffee jar, scissors, chopsticks, among others) -- they also have special contributions from Nash the Slash (a.k.a. Jeff Plewman) and Martin Deller of famed Canadian band FM. Sixteen-page booklet has an abundance of photos, track by track information, and the odd history of these seminal recordings told by David Pritchard himself. Includes four bonus tracks not on the original 1976 Island LP release." - Pacemaker.

Price: $16.00
"Winners of the 1970 musical competition at Quebecs Man And His World (former site of Expo 67), this quartet subsequently played for two weeks at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan and upon their return recorded this, their sole LP release, for the Canadian branch of Columbia Records. As with labelmates Jarvis Street Revue and Its All Meat, press runs for these LPs numbered in the four-digit range at best, nowhere near the quantities US counterparts The Byrds or Mitch Miller (or heck, even Hampton Grease Band) commanded, and all have become sought-after psychedelic arty-facts. So, what about the music you ask? A melodic bridge betwixt late psych and early prog, with a solid foundation of organ and driving rhythm, well-placed stinging guitar leads, and forceful vocals saying everything and nothing simultaneously. 33 minutes, seven tracks and not a loser in the bunch. From the mastertape, original cover artwork and liner notes preserved for the ages." - Pacemaker.

Artist: DOMMERT, FRANK
Title: Kiefermusik
Format: LP
Label: Pacific City Sound Visions
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“It seems somehow fitting that Frank Dommerts first solo album, Kiefermusik, was first released in 1990, just a moment after the new decade had ticked over. During the late 1980s, Dommert had been quietly working away at his own art in Cologne, while developing connections with other sub-rosa operatives: in 1987, he took part in a collaborative single with Christoph Heemann and Achim P Li Khans outfit, Hirsch Nicht Aus Sofa (H.N.A.S.), “Hunsrück”; he was also part of H.N.A.S. for their side of Face To Face Vol. 2, a split LP with Vox Populi. Dommert was also releasing cassettes in limited editions on his Entenpfuhl imprint, including an early collaboration with Marcus Schmickler, early tapes by PFN and C-Schulz, along with a number of solo cassettes and chapbooks.
Kiefermusik saw in the new decade by repurposing and recontextualising material from one of those cassettes, Early Loops & Tapes, which consisted of material recorded between 1984 and 1987. Discussing the album in 2015, Dommert confided that he heavily processed these recordings in the studio, with “the open studio window integrated. The record is pretty much a (LSD) trip, intentional and a large portion unconscious.” Its certainly full of hallucinatory visions, sidereal moments where loops knock you off-kilter and waves of surrealist and Art Brut noise tactics stop you in your tracks. Its simultaneously a rough-as-guts album of collapsing architectures and an intelligent, sensitively sculpted masterpiece of editing, with Dommert winding a psychedelic spool around loops that could spin out into eternity.
Kiefermusik may well have had more impact in international tape- and record-trading circles than in Dommerts hometown. Dommert had already made connections with fellow travellers like ADN, RRR, Recommended and Odd Size, and the album slowly found its way around the world, connecting with like-minded listeners who were on the look-out for new voices in the heterogeneous, nebulous field of underground, low-tech avant-garde.
Yet Kiefermusik, along with the electro-acoustic improvisation collective of Kontakta (featuring Dommert alongside C-Schulz, Georg Odijk, Hajsch, Marcus Schmickler and Monika Westphal), the fantastic series of LPs released on Quiet Artworks (PFN, Hajsch, Ios Smolders), and the strange electro satellites from labels like Erfolg (C-Schulz, Marcus Schmickler), seemed somehow to set things up for the next wave to come through, the brilliant explosion of electronic music to come out of Cologne in the mid-late 1990s. And beyond all that, even, Kiefermusik is still a fantastically strange, beautiful, and compelling album, a good twenty-six years later. Dont miss it this time around.” - Jon Dale.

"Inner Tube is about the inner emotional reverie of a world where life has been seen through the tube of a wave. Its a new band from Mark McGuire of Emeralds and Spencer Clark of The Skaters and Monopoly Child Star Searchers. Spencer has this to say about the experience: "The bliss and ecstatic power of Australian beach music has kept me in this positive mental attitude that I wanted to communicate to everyone around me. Mark and I began to be in touch, and started to really connect in our exotic fascination with Australia and its surf culture. We decided to record an album together with impressions from these private movies and their tunes. Mark travelled numerous times to Pacific City Studios so that we could make this album together(and eventually moved here). At one point, a woman visiting Hotel California who I hadnt met before, mentioned she thought it was strange that I played so much Australian music. I told her about my fascination with Storm Riders, the sickest Australian movie of all time. She immediately told me that her Uncle had a big part in the movie. The guys name is Rabbit Bartholomew. He is a magical person in this Storm Riders movie and has been an inspirational to surfers everywhere. He wrote this letter to Mark and I:

Hey Spencer,
Great to get ya letter. Christel gave me a bit of insight. Really cool how you guys were talking about Storm Riders and our family connection, thats meant to be bra. For sure, send me a demo, Ill give ya some feedback. Thats really cool about inner tube and the beloved zone, thats it mate, right on the money.

Best
Rab

We then realized that we were to travel to the Gold Coast in Australia to record Inner Tube Part Deux, and play a Surf Festival put on by Rabbit Bartholomews sister. The story just keeps on going, so Mark and I are really stoked to have you guys check this out with us..." - Pacific City Sound Visions/Wagon.

Title: Aberrant Lens
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Marc Barrecas seventh solo album for Palace of Lights extends his work with a broader and deeper palette of synthesized and sampled sound, including sources as diverse as prepared guitars, pianos, Indonesian metallophones and glass harmonica. The music of Aberrant Lens employs long MIDI delays, synced MIDI processing via MAX for Live and extreme warping of disparate looped sound sources driven into entirely new states. The results are new, coherent aural structures: music that questions traditional definitions of ambient and electronic forms. And, to the educated ear, within this search for innovation and experimentation Aberrant Lens reveals many of Barrecas earliest influences. Even when integrated in thoroughly non-retro compositions, the hints of homage to Cluster and the first Fripp & Eno releases inhabit these twelve new settings. Marc Barreca has been creating and performing electronic music since the mid-1970s. His 1980 album, Twilight, was one of the earliest releases on Palace of Lights. His cassette-era album Music Works for Industry is being reissued by the RVNG spin-off Freedom To Spend, and his early cassette work is included in the upcoming VOD box set American Cassette Culture, which also features Marcs early electronic music group Young Scientist. His work is included in the collection of The British Library." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Beneath The Mirrored Surface
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Released in 2015. The impulse to invent and realize new music, new forms and a broader comprehension of sound has proven to be a permanent aspect of Marc Barrecas work. From childhood music lessons, to tape and electronic experimentation with his group Young Scientist, to becoming an early participant in cassette culture and the independent movement, Marc has developed a large body of work that moves with and ahead of the changes that music has undergone in the past four decades. With Beneath The Mirrored Surface, Marc continues his quest to create deep and shifting aural spaces by merging the abstract rhythmic warmth of early analog synthesis with the complexity and timbral beauty of acoustic instruments and natural sound. Barreca extracted and reshaped rhythms and textures from field recordings, decades-old world folk recordings and acoustic instrument loops. These sources were first converted into MIDI data using Ableton Live and then transformed and manipulated with Max/MSP. Hundreds of these source clips were then blended and arranged with layered and looped digital synthesizer and sampler tracks. The result is a dense, rich world of refracted light and shifting shadow. Mastered by Taylor Deupree." - Palace of Lights.

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Marc Barrecas twilight ( originally the second LP release from Palace of Lights) struck out in a distinct direction, taking steps into the ambient and industrial while carrying along a phonographic sensibility. Using sounds derived from a variety of acoustic as well as electronic sources, twilight foreshadowed the diversity and pliability of sampled, industrial and lowercase musics, making this 1980 release remarkably prescient and resiliently fresh to this day. One of the enduring and highly-sought after albums from the original Northwest School of independent electronic music is made available again." - Palace Of Lights (on the CD reissue).

Original sealed, 1981 pressing of the second LP release on Palace Of Lights (K. LEIMER (see recent archival release on RVNG), SAVANT, ROY FINCH, STEVE PETERS, etc..).

2016 repress. "Marc Barreca has been creating and performing electronic music since the mid 1970s. Following recent vinyl reissues of Barrecas 1983 cassette Music Works for Industry via the RVNG spin-off Freedom To Spend, and a compilation of early cassette tracks on Vinyl On Demands acclaimed American Cassette Culture, Palace of Lights has reissued the artists first album for the label. 1980s Twilight was one of the earliest releases on Palace of Light, and is part of an ongoing program of documenting the roots of the Pacific Northwest independent impulse. This remastered and expanded edition includes one previously unreleased track on the LP and an additional six bonus tracks via the enclosed download card. Twilight struck out in a distinct direction, taking steps into the ambient and industrial while carrying along a phonographic sensibility. Using sounds derived from a variety of acoustic as well as electronic sources, Twilight foreshadowed the diversity and pliability of sampled, industrial and lowercase musics, ensuring the album was remarkably prescient and remains resiliently fresh to this day. Textura (reviewing Tremble) said Barrecas lava-like soundworlds are heady constructions whose sounds spill forth in thick clusters and collectively present themselves as heaving conglomerations of shape-shifting sound... a word like organic is less applicable than geologic, given the immense tectonic force with which its material convulses." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Closed System Potentials
Format: LP
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Following the RVNG reissues of A Period Of Review (ranked the #7 reissue of 2014 by The Wire) and Artificial Dance (ranked the #2 reissue of 2015 by The Wire), Closed System Potentials, recorded in 1979 and originally released in 1980, finds its way back to vinyl in a completely remastered and expanded edition. The LP includes two previously unreleased tracks, and the download card includes an additional two unreleased tracks, all taken from the original Closed System Potentials sessions. In their review of A Period of Review, Pitchfork said, These pieces most closely evoke the work of Roedelius and Moebius in Cluster: meditative, wistful, lovely, giving off gentle glimmers of light. In trying to think if the closest American corollary for this set, the possibility emerges that Kerry Leimer is one of the lone examples of American kosmische music, that elegant hybrid that falls somewhere between the Velvets-style mesmerism of Can in the early 70s and the placid tones of new age music that arose in the next decade. Its a sound that applies to mid-70s Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, the second side of Kraftwerks Autobahn, and others. K. Leimer founded the Palace of Lights label in 1979. Leimers early work was reissued by Autumn and RVNG in 2014 and 2015, and his early cassette work is in the critically acclaimed Vinyl On Demand box set American Cassette Culture. He has been actively producing music since the mid 1970s - his current catalog includes 16 still-in-print albums plus two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca." - Palace of Lights.

Format: LP
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"The Land Of Look Behind soundtrack returns to vinyl in a remastered and expanded edition that includes a download of three previously unheard and unreleased tracks from the original sessions. Alan Greenberg, who wrote and directed this film documenting the funeral of Bob Marley, provided K. Leimer with location tapes which were used to originate many of the rhythmic patterns for Land Of Look Behind. Loops of the monologues and phrases that exhibited more distinctive cadences and pacing, the words, glottal stops, clicks and coughs of witnesses were used as cues for the percussion instruments. In effect, speech became the organizing principle of the musical score. By eliminating the accuracy of click tracks, musicians were prompted to rove through the inconsistent intervals of the voice-derived patterns. Also included is a four-page insert featuring an essay by Paul Dickow." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Permissions
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Released in 2012. Permissions is somewhat of a collaboration with Taylor Deupree, given that the 12k head is credited with additional voices, post-production, edit, mix, and mastering. The detail isnt insignificant, either, as Permissions largely collapses whatever stylistic differences might normally separate 12k and Palace of Lights recordings. Arranged into concise song-like structures, the material exemplifies the concentration on fluttering micro-sound textures, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings thats shared by the two creators and often captured on a typical 12k release. Listed sans titles on the CD cover as simply Permissions 01-16, the settings function like snapshots that cumulatively provide an in-depth portrait of Leimers range. The mood is generally laid-back, meditative, and explorative, but the elements drawn upon are not only pastoral in nature as industrial sounds surface, too." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Re-enact
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Following a few years of back-catalog recovery, K. Leimer has completed work on his first new solo album since The Grey Catalog. These ten new tracks follow an emergent arc, a refinement of the techniques he has used since Permissions. Highly tactile, with an emphasis on subharmonics, Re-enact sketches an antediluvian soundstage of deteriorating fragments scattered among still-recognizable artifacts. This multitude of points-of-collapse in textural, timbre, harmonic and rhythmic relationships, continually folds in on itself to reveal moments of inner coherence and cognition. Embedded throughout with a wealth of digital and analog detail, Re-enact sets a new post-ambient direction for Leimers work. K. Leimer founded Palace of Lights in 1979. Leimers early work has recently been reissued by Autumn and RVNG, and his early cassette work is in the critically acclaimed VOD box set American Cassette Culture (VOD 139KL-LP, 2015). Leimer has been actively producing music since the mid-1970s -- his current catalog includes 17 albums plus two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca. Leimers work is included in the collection of The British Library." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Live At Various / Various Live
Format: Double LP
Label: Palilalia
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"That guitarist Bill Orcutt & drummer Chris Corsano would play as a duo should come as a surprise to no one. As artists, both of them have bent sonic boundaries to the breaking point, especially as regards rock-based music, and they have long flowed through the same international sub-underground arteries. It was only a matter of time. The first fruit of their union was a brain melting LP called The Raw & The Cooked (2013), recorded on tour in 2012. Live at Various / Various Live is made up of the two Palilalia cassettes that followed it. The tracks were recorded between a couple of tours, one in 2013 and one the following year, in Northampton, Mexico City, Brooklyn, Montreal, Cleveland and Rochester. And they demonstrate the ferocity of Orcutts return to the electric guitar. Twinned-up with Corsano, Bill goes for the most distorted and bleeding tones available, whether pouring out frenzied clusters, or slow-bending blue-notes in the tradition of Loren Connors, the raunch of the proceedings is a physical presence. And Corsano goes deep into rolls and splashes with an almost perverted intensity. There aint much space here for sweetness or subtlety. The music is driven home with mallets, achieving a near-Beefheartian density in spots. Heard as a whole, this album provides a gush of relentless thug-beauty of a sort that has never been in long supply. Grasp it now or hold your sad peace for now and ever." -- Byron Coley. Double LP with gatefold cover. Recorded by Chris Corsano and Bill Orcutt on tour in 2013 and 2014. Reissue of two cassettes originally released on Palilalia as Live At Various and Various Live.

The Raw and the Cooked is not a musical soap opera set in the kitchen of a brunch restaurant in which Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano star.

Title: The Lost Tapes
Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"In the annals of Hardcore Punk history, there are certain bands who stumbled their way on to many vinyl and cassette compilations of the early eighties that stuck out so severely you just had to ask yourself Why?. Although their intention and sentiment fit right in with the Reagan Sucks/Drugs Suck/You Suck vibe of the time, their ineptitude and spirit created something so unique that it hit a vein of expression that was entirely of its own. None of the mask sporting pre-conceiving art wavers of the time could have come up with statements as effortlessly bizarre as the ones presented by such brave and confused one hit compilation wonders as Church Police, B.I.U, and Demented Youth.  On the tipity top of that teetering list is Fresno Californias Maniax who supplied us with the beyond classic anthem Off to War on the beyond classic Not So Quiet on the Western Front double LP compilation in 1982. For nigh on twenty five years now, this track has intrigued the fuck outta me. With the fidelity lower than whale dung, a truly buzzsaw guitar battles for space with a barely pubescent vocalist who drones on and on reciting the words Off to War over and over again for a good five minutes. I always wondered if their other songs were this disorienting and wonderful. Well, I need not wonder no more! Maniax vocalist Gregg Mitchell has finally found the time to share with us the lost tapes of Fresnos youngest early 80s Punk band and its every thing Ive dreamed it would be and more. 34 tracks of bedroom recorded early teenaged Punk Rock anthems about dead dogs, posers and having a crush on Wendy O. Williams. Are they using an air organ on track 29? What the fuck? THE MOST ESSENTIAL AND NEEDED POSTHUMOUS PUNK ROCK RELEASE OF OUR CENTURY AND I MEAN THAT. Even though I really hate how nothing of the past is left to the imagination anymore these days, I gotta say my brain is exhausted after twenty something years of wondering what those other Maniax tracks sounded like. Thanks for the rest, Gregg." -- Tony Rettman.

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
“On All Kind Music, NYC production duo Georgia (Brian Close and Justin Tripp) return for their third full length: ECM-era Don Cherry global jazz meets contemporary electronic avant-garde, true world dance music for the next millennium.
With guest turns on every track, Georgia explore a new approach to studio production, incorporating the sounds of world and jazz music into their digital funk and combining and processing improvisation and composed elements to create a unified, distinct voice. This approach can be heard on “Ama Yes Uzume,” as a primally incandescent vocal from Caroline Polachek (Chairlift) blends with glistening waves of piano and synth to form a euphoric rhythm that materializes out of curved air. Blending live performance with sampling and editing, Georgia constantly revise and revisit their work, breaking down, collaging, and refracting sounds.
On lead track “Slow Dance,” vocals by performance artist India Menuez waft over a loping bass line (sampled from a performance by Matt Werth of RVNG) while digital flutes cluster in the background. The outcome is a kind of new age mutant funk, not unlike the sound of Annette Peacock or 23 Skidoo jamming in the studio with Jon Hassell. Additional collaborators include avant-garde harpist Mary Lattimore, saxophonist Wednesday Knudsen, and Gabonese vocalist Abang Essone Sarah Maya. As the title suggests, this is music of many multitudes.” - Palto Flats.

"Following a much-loved full-length, New Zealander Kraus (Klaus, drummer of Futurians, member of Olympus with Stefan Neville) really brings the goods on this four-song outing of pure Martian stomp. Analog synths, gritty low-end rhythm tracks, tangled/stumbled guitar melodies and above all DETERMINATION to get something done really push this one along in a way that the Kraus LP really didnt (or didnt need to, as these recordings may predate that work). These songs sound like progress, and its a doubly amazing feat as there arent really songs here; more like a bunch of low-tech machines set forth to follow a complex pattern, and listening to them complete it over and over is fascinating enough. Its like having a half-mile of slot car track, infinite terrain options, and the will to build something huge to scale. Also reminds me of those film clips of “The Worlds Biggest Domino Rally” that would get shows at the back end of local news or human interest shows on TV back in the 80s, where a bunch of dudes in a big room set off a huge chain reaction, patterns, etc. Really dig this one a lot."-Still Single/Doug Mosurock

“Palto Flats is thrilled to announce the re-release of the 1983 classic Mariah – Utakata No Hibi as a double 12″ set. The long sought after final record on the legendary Better Days label, Utakata No Hibi is the culmination of composer and bandleader Yasuaki Shimizu’s early-80s work, often compared to his contemporaries Ryuichi Sakamoto and Haruomi Hosono, as well as experimental new wavers Flying Lizards/David Cunningham, all of whom Shimizu has worked with. Recognized in Japan for the hit, “Shinzo No Tobira,” the entire record is a masterful studio production of Japanese folk and pop idioms filtered through a chamber disco, new wave, synth production, sounding more relevant today than upon its release over 30 years ago. Utakata No Hibi is fully licensed by Nippon Columbia and the Artist, and remastered by Dubplates and Mastering in Berlin. The packaging features additional artwork from Yla Okudaira, who created the original stunning jacket drawings. It also includes a full English translation of the Japanese and Armenian lyrics on the printed inner sleeves.” - Palto Flats.

"Palto Flats is pleased to release an overview of the mid-80s works of Roland Young, perhaps best known for his spiritual jazz record, Isophonic Boogie Woogie. This release comprises the entirety of his 1984 four song 12”, I-LAND, as well as most of his 1987 LP, Hearsay Evidence, both released on his label, Flow- Chart Records. This release presents a different side to Rolands story, and features both vocal and writing contributions from his wife Risa. On Ballo-Balla, Risa sings over a simple and spacey 808 rhythm and bass sequence, in a track worthy of later Larry Levan and Paradise Garage. On other tracks, Roland sings in a higher pitched, soulful voice over similarly rudimentary analog sequences, to create a relaxed atmosphere, with lyrical content touching upon love, social commentary, emotions, and more, all in a deeply personal way. The tracks from both releases have been remastered from the original master tapes and pristine vinyl, and were sequenced in collaboration with the Artist to create a cohesive full length album of his mid 80s works. These songs fit squarely in the mold of Jeff Phelps, Dam Funk and the like, and are meant to be enjoyed both at home and in downtempo DJ sets, and as a historical document and pop record. Rolands other solo released LPs are Isophonic Boogie Woogie (Flow-Chart), Istet Serenade, and Mystiphonic, all on the Japanese label EM Records. He was a principal songwriter in the early 80s no- wave band, The Offs, whose first record featured a Basquiat cover, and had a sound comparable to The Contortions. Roland is a classically trained jazz clarinetist who performed at a young age with Alice Coltrane. He moved to New York City in the early 80s and has continued to make music since, with a diverse and substantive discography of self-released spiritually influenced jazz and new age releases. The artwork for Hearsay I-Land is an original ink drawing by Nathan Antolik, and is based on the original album cover of I-LAND. First run of 500 copies on black vinyl.

"At the nexus of Afrofuturism, science fiction, transcendental free jazz, and future hip hop, this new work from Eric Douglas Porter casts itself and its creator in a liminal zone most recognizably charted by astral traveler Sun Ra. Circuitous follows nearly a decade of releases for Deepblak -- the Oakland-rooted imprint of frequent collaborator Aybee -- and shares common blood with both the elevated consciousness of late 80s club culture and contemporary west coast beat scene. Built around Porters signature polyrhythms and complex melodies, the albums 14 tracks demonstrate an unorthodox agility honed over a long history of live improvised sets combining multiple turntables, upright bass, and a command center of digital tablets and controllers. Each track maps the artists own movements, tracing paths of flight, highway trajectories through tunnels and over bridges, and rides through rough and gated neighborhoods. If familiar on the surface, deeper or repeated listenings to Circuitous reveal the dynamic multiplicity within. Circuitous is a free and unbound body of work -- one that defies easy classification yet translates fluidly across multiple environments -- presented on double LP in order to fully realize the scope of Afrikan Sciences sonic palette.

Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Oren Ambarchi presents Live Knots, two live realizations of Knots, the epic centerpiece of his 2012 album Audience of One (TO 083CD/LP). Built on the interplay between Ambarchis swirling guitar harmonics and the metronomic pulse and shifting accents of Joe Talias DeJohnette-esque drumming, the piece merges the organic push and pull of free improvisation with an overarching compositional framework. Tokyo Knots is the complete recording of a duo performance of the piece by Ambarchi and Talia recorded at Tokyos legendary SuperDeluxe in March 2013. The performance builds gently on the foundation of Talias insistent ride cymbal and the shifting tonal bed of Ambarchis rich, overtone-drenched guitar, eventually going into a free rock free fall of buzz saw harmonics and crashing drums. From within the maelstrom, Talia picks up a pulsing motorik rhythm that leads the piece back to where it began, with the addition of the shuddering, elastic tones of a hand-played spring reverb unit. Krakow Knots works with the same basic structure but stretches it out to nearly twice the length and adds strings played by the Sinfonietta Cracovia, led by Eyvind Kang on viola. The strings expand the pieces textural range with lush chordal blocks, uneasy dissonances, and occasional Ligeti-esque swarms of micro-activity, the swelling string tones intensifying the ecstatic nature of the piece as it moves toward its mid-point crescendo in which Ambarchi unleashes a particularly malicious continuum of stuttering harmonic fuzz. The strings then enter with a series of swelling chords, announcing the pieces final movement, and reaffirming the uniqueness of the tonal and compositional language that Ambarchi has patiently developed over the last two decades, in which the influence of post-minimal composers such as Alvin Curran, Gavin Bryars, and David Behrman can be felt alongside the inspiration of raw free jazz, harsh noise, and academic psychoacoustics. The final moments of the performance pit Talia and Crys Coles amplified objects and spring reverb textures against a field of gently gliding string glissandi before the audience erupts in much-deserved applause." - Francis Plagne.

Title: Forma II
Format: CD
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Forma II is the first collaborative output by Thomas Ankersmit and Valerio Tricoli. Composed and recorded in Berlin from 2008 to 2010, the music consists of four electroacoustic pieces based largely on analog synthesizer material and one long-form, swarm-like composition for multiple overdubbed saxophones. Additional sounds range from metal foil floating on ultrasonic sound-beams to mechanical clickers recorded in the abandoned radar domes at Teufelsberg. The raw materials have been extensively processed and re-constructed using analog tape and digital methods. The five pieces shift between sharply detailed blizzards of electronic interference to passages of delicate balance, between calm and turbulence, between stasis and rapid shape-shifting, between multiple virtual spaces and non-spaces. Thomas Ankersmit is a saxophonist, electronic musician and installation artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam, who combines abstract, intensely-focused acoustic saxophone work with hyper-kinetic analog synth and computer improvisation. He also creates installation pieces that use sound, infrasound and "modifications to the acoustic characters of spaces" that disrupt the viewer/listeners perception of the exhibition space and their presence within it. He frequently works together with New York minimalist Phill Niblock. Other recent collaborators have included Kevin Drumm and Borbetomagus. Valerio Tricoli is a Berlin-based composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer, sound engineer and curator bridging musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound with a radical interest in how reality, virtuality and memory relate to each other during the acoustic event. He mostly uses analog electronic devices (reel-to-reel tape recorders, synthesizers, microphones, light effects, ultrasonic speakers). The structure of the set-up is ever-changing however, seeking multiple relations between the performers, the device and the space in which the event takes place. He is one of the founders of 3/4HadBeenEliminated and the Bowindo label/collective. The CD is mastered by Rashad Becker at Clunk, in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. It is packaged in a pro-press digisleeve jacket which itself is housed in a one-tone silk-screened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs, with artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Price: $27.00
"In the vast world of electronic music, where sounds, signifiers and gestures are recontextualized to a numbing degree, it is increasingly rare and refreshing to encounter a release as perspective-distorting as the debut full-length release by Rashad Becker. The album is a masterpiece of focused, non-referential electronic environments. It is both warm, alien, paranoid and exhilarating. Sounds are stretched in the most unusual manner, foreign bodies are frequent and the structure is simply bewildering. Split into "Themes" and "Dances," the eight tracks guide the listener through Beckers brave new world. Despite being entirely synthetic, there are sounds which appear like a distortion of the world around us, on occasion "voice-like" sounds are present, elsewhere there appears the sound of cicadas, only these cicadas are made of mercury and swim through time. The end result is beautiful in a way only a unique work of art can be. PAN is proud to present the outside from within. Mastered and cut by Becker himself at Dubplates & Mastering, and pressed on 140 gram vinyl." -Pan.

Following Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. I, Vol. II expands in various elements, distorted and warped, focusing in on the tension and energy of synthesized sounds that appear to exist, hauntingly physically. Known for his unrivaled attention to sonic detail across his work, Beckers unique techniques and expressive manipulations of sound are laid bare in an exhilarating new form, stylistically distinctive and uncompromising.

Title: Urban Disease
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
2010 release. "Urban Disease is the new radical work by Billy Bao, Mattin, Taku Unami, Tim Barnes, Barry Weisblat and Margarida Garcia. Its important to remember that before Mattin and anarchism ruined his life, Billy Bao was a bit of a troubadour who accompanied himself on acoustic guitar and warbled wild songs of protest in his native Nigerian patois. This new album, his third on vinyl, finds Billy in a transitional phase toward the end of 2006, before the gaztetxes of Bilbao burrowed into his marrow, before Mattin became the Merle to his G.G., before Billy turned into herpes sore in the mouth of global capitalism. "Billy doesnt believe in hypnagogia," were told, "because he always sleeps with one eye open, and when he dreams, all he sees is AIDS denialists, German shepherds, and soldiers disguised as UN peacekeepers." Before Taku Unami fucked it up, this session found Bao relaxed and in high spirits as he conducted a pickup band of itinerant improvisers through a song-by-song cover of Amon Düüls Psychedelic Underground. Margarida Garcia lent her astounding skill and highly personal idiom on the electric double-bass, in her hands an instrument with the tension of string on wood and the disruptive potential of a crackle box. Barry Weisblat, meanwhile, teased out a century of drone from a Cornell lunchbox of filament and circuitry. Who better to play drums and percussion than the sainted Tim Barnes? Mattin, thumb and forefinger compulsively pinching or stroking his Hitler mustache after every take, funneled Billys malaise through laptop, percussion, and folk instrumentation. There was even, astonishingly, a womens choir on hand, eerily filling out the atmosphere with wordless vocals and incantations. But this is after, and the result is a fragmentary, extremely loud hippie jam session punctuated by stretches of uneasy silence and scrape. The Lp is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press jacket which itself is housed in a silk screened pvc sleeve with original artwork by New York artist HENRY FLYNT." - Pan.

"Brand new release from Brighton mongs Blood Stereo, duo of Dylan Nyoukis and Karen Constance. Your Snakelike King picks up where 2008s The Magnetic Headache left off, a shape shifting and strange mix of tape collage, free vocals and electro-acoustic mischief. Midnight to 3am recordings fueled by grape and smoke conjour up a blurred narrative, the meaning of which is never quite clear, like weird off camera sounds in some tripped out movie. Anal fins tucked in tight behind them, Blood Stereo look like a pair of ill-kempt roosters, fighting over a doughnut. The guy rooster is jibbering in some unknown tongue, turning his face inside out, while shoving the microphone slowly through a hole in his cheek. The girl rooster appears to be pecking at him, either that or shes picking at various trash they have strewn around the stage. Every time she ducks her head there is the sound of a jet passing overhead. But when you look up at the sky there is no sign of a contrail. After a while you think you are starting to get a handle on what they are doing, but the guy falls down and starts doing a spazz dance so utterly convincing you begin to worry about him. Then the girls starts screaming and it seems as though something is really profoundly wrong. And it is. But its not like theyre in any kind of trouble. Theyre just wrong, yknow? So savagely wrong from every angle that its really tough to imagine there s anything you could do to really help them. As if theyd even want in. In their masks or out, they sow confusion like wheat. -- Byron Coley.

Title: Wie Zeit Vergeht
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $32.00
"The Berserker of Berlins uninterrupted stream of timbre-changing and alternating sounds takes influence from aspects of Stockhausens work, albeit certainly far from Serielle Komposition methods. Using an entirely different array of equipment and caring less for technical finesse, a raw and sometimes absurd quality emerges. In spite of the dramatic character of the compositions, FRIEDER BUTZMANN works with the same joy and intuition as when he first heard them almost 40 years ago. Manipulating analogue sounds culled from old electronic recordings that he made at STEIM in Amsterdam back in 1995 (using the infamous Black Box modular system), a dadaistic influence shines through in the semi-naive use of electronics, vocals and undefined sound sources. For Butzmannm the basic idea is always more important than the perfect realization. The lyrics are excerpts of ... Wie Die Zeit Vergeht ..., Telemusik and Kurzwellen by Stockhausen plus re-writings of lyrics used in the first section of the composers concrete and electronic composition Hymnen. 140-gram vinyl, color jacket, silkscreened PVC sleeve.

"Chris Douglas story reads like a lesson in the development of outsider electronic music over the past 20 years. He began throwing the first ambient techno parties in San Francisco at just 16 years old, and moved to Detroit a year later to begin working with Mike Banks (Underground Resistance) and James Stinson (Drexciya). He relocated to Berlin in the early 2000s after being invited to support Autechre on their Confield tour (and perform at the now legendary Autechre-curated ATP Festival) and has since then steadily released challenging and intense records as Dalglish, O.S.T., Scald Rougish, and Seaes, all the while maintaining an elusive personal profile. He has also worked extensively in film music, having recently composed the soundtrack for Anna Eborns film Pine Ridge, which had its world premiere at the 70th Venice Biennale. Furthermore, he is a founding member of audiovisual collective SYNKEN featuring members of Transforma. His PAN debut, dedicated to his friend, the sadly-deceased musician and Isolate Records founder Wai Cheng (Optic), is a complex and cavernous exercise in texture and rhythm, marrying the freedom and tonal breadth of electro-acoustic composition with percussive patterns disjointed to the point of collapse. It is easy to see how his work is often critically-received as emotionally challenging. There is a closeness to these compositions, and his muscular, full-spectrum passages are often counteracted with brittle and delicate detail. Unhinged and unrestrained, you will be hard pressed to find a single loop throughout the entire album, with each of the compositions mutated through vividly reverberating, clangorous landscapes.

"Words are more often then not the point of departure for many works of Das Synthetische Mischegewebe. The track titles here stem from El Mundo Alucinante de Reinaldo Arenas, which itself is inspired by François-René de Chateaubriands Mémoires doutre-tombe. It is about time rather than history and about being in history. Having lost the war of time, the only thing that remains to do is being, and here we go, being infiniment exigent in its means of expression. DSM began in Berlin armed with a visual education from the early 80s. They quickly became part of the international industrial cassette scene. Composing for light installations with open-reel machines, cassette recorders, microphone and guitar fuzz boxes with both loud, quiet, occasionally full blast and frequently sneaking in little sounds, all alternating within a few seconds, create an electroacoustic anti-music. With unusual concerts in the underground network as well as in high art institutions and museums (such as Centre Pompidou) and later on with performances for mixed media installation, exhibitions and conferences on cognitive science and neurologic research related topics, the group toured with changing casts since the early 80s, and participated in international festivals throughout Europe and the US. Since 1982 they continue to produce vinyls, CDs and tapes on many international labels: Discos Esplendor Geometrico, RRRecords, Hypnagogia, Vinyl-on-Demand, Auf Abwegen, Harsh Reality Music, Equation Records, Das Cassetten Combinat and many others.

"Grapes and Snakes is the first collaborative work of two of the most respected American underground experimental/noise artists, Aaron Dilloway and Jason Lescalleet. Using purely analog synths and tape manipulation, they build a foggy psychoacoustic mass that lies between dynamic yet patiently treated tape-music and industrial howl. Aaron Dilloway has been releasing and recording music since the age of 16. He was a member of experimental bands Couch, Galen and Universal Indians. He is a former guitarist and tape manipulator for the experimental band Wolf Eyes, which he left in 2005 to live most of that year in Kathmandu, Nepal. While his wife did her graduate work there, he roamed the streets recording every sound he could, many of which are used in his recent recordings and performances. Currently he runs the noise record label, record store and mailorder Hanson Records, which he began in Brighton, Michigan in 1994. Hanson then moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan for several years, before finally settling in Oberlin, Ohio, after a brief return to Ann Arbor. He performs solo using eight track tapes and vocal sounds, and records modular synthesizer music as Spine Scavenger. Recently, he has played with an ever-changing cast of sound artists under the name The Nevari Butchers. Jason Lescalleets sound world occupies a space between noise, contemporary composition, and minimal electronics. Using decidedly primitive tactics and equipment (e.g. antiquated reel-to-reel recorders, damaged tape, etc.), his work focuses on extreme frequencies and microscopic audio detail. Hes been a member of Due Process, performed and recorded with Keith Rowe, Joe Colley, Jason Kahn, John Hudak, Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley (both separately and as Nmperign), and most recently Graham Lambkin in their Breadwinner project which has yielded unprecedented and glorious results in the electroacoustic music of today.

Title: Plouging Furrows Into Rotten Burrows
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"Made up of junk sounds, be they acoustic or electronic, Ploughing Furrows Into Rotten Burrows is informed by a caustic patience and steady pacing. With a concentrated approach, Mark Durgan makes the space, and even silences between sounds, an integral part of his constructions. He builds up tracks from the beginning with loops, samples or acoustic sounds, then the sound becomes quite automated due to the influence of the feedback generated from the electronic devices. For the past twenty years, Mark Durgan, known under the Putrefier moniker and his label Birthbiter (1986), is one of the few genuinely curious anomalies operating today. Disassociated with a lot of noise, he is more of a true outsider of this scene, somewhat akin to the older sound poets. Although their realm of art is very different to that of his, comparisons can be made. The lack of concrete documentation, both written and recorded, could be construed as an attempt at mystery, but the reality is that it all comes down to a total ambivalence about having a public persona. Despite that this is his first official work under his own name, it still bears similarity to the Putrefier concept. From the influences of power electronics and especially early nineties Japanese noise (Cog Dominance cassette, 1987 on Broken Flag), his music has developed into different areas of the avant garde spectrum, such as musique concrete, improvisation and electroacoustic music, demonstrated in one of his latest works done with The New Blockaders. Being able to appreciate other forms of experimentation, he takes noise to a different level. The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker in a limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

Price: $19.00
2015 repress. "The 30-minute Diversions 1994-1996 EP is made up entirely from samples from the collection of Lee Gambles jungle cassette mix-tapes. The audio has been subjected to analog and digital deformations, while trying to extract, expand upon, and convey particular qualities emblematic of the original music. The effect is that of a musical body scan, all that is solid melts into air. Sounds are unearthed, dissected on the operating table, melted and unlocked , evoking sonics not unlike the heavy dub processes of Jah Shaka and Scion in an INA GRM frame of mind or bearing a similar methodological approach with what Mark Leckey explored in his piece "Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore." It can be heard as a "memory" of a period of music and for some could work as a "cued recall," which is a form of memory retrieval. Lee Gamble started out as a teenager DJing on pirate radio and on the emerging jungle scene; however, his own approach to music has taken a more experimental direction. Exploring the outer realms of abstraction through digital synthesis/resynthesis, Lee has described his current compositional process as "the configuration of material (ex nihilo) via various digital synthesis methods, prompts further disfigurations and reconfigurations. What you then have left is often the detritus or debris of an idea. Phantasms of both previous and current musical, pseudo-scientific and sculptural influences are manifest as new material abstractions, created from the digital blank canvas. This abstraction allows several interests to appear in the works simultaneously." He is also a founding member of the UK-based CYRK collective and has curated/co-curated several CYRK events. He has also produced and curated three radio series for London-based radio station Resonance 104.4 FM and he continues to DJ. Lee has released his computer compositions on the Entracte label and has collaborated with composer John Wall and artists Yutaka Makino and Bryan Lewis Saunders. Diversions 1994-1996 is the beginning of a longer-term collaboration with Pan. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering.

There were many self-imposed rules he adhered to during this time. These last few years he decided to break with that and make an intuitive venture forward. This record is the first real document of that.

Exploring the outer realms of abstraction through digital synthesis/re-synthesis, Lee has described his current compositional process as: "The configuration of material (ex nihilo) via various digital synthesis methods, prompts further disfigurations and reconfigurations. What you then have left is often the detritus or debris of an idea. Phantasms of both previous and current musical, pseudo-scientific and sculptural influences are manifest as new material abstractions, created from the digital blank canvas. This abstraction allows several interests to appear in the works simultaneously." He is a also a founding member of the UK-based CYRK collective and has curated/co-curated several CYRK events. He has also produced and curated three radio series for London-based radio station Resonance 104.4FM and he continues to DJ. Lee has released his computer compositions on the Entracte label and has collaborated with composer John Wall and artists Yutaka Makino and Bryan Lewis Saunders. Packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering and pressed on 140 gram vinyl." - Pan.

"Following up from the success of his emphatic PAN releases Dutch Tvashar Plumes (PAN 036LP) and Diversions 1994-1996 (PAN 033LP) in 2012, PAN is excited to announce Koch (pronounced "cotch"), the new album from Londons Lee Gamble. Sharing some stylistic affinity with his previous records, which excavated his deeply personal history with UK jungle and rave, and techno, this new work dives even deeper to reveal a singular and intimate musical vantage point, shifting to approaching music as projection, state, hallucination, another place. In Koch, we experience an artist constructing a future, after time spent deconstructing the past. In the music we witness such dimensional abstraction, zooming between epic macro-scenery and claustrophobically close detail, disorientation and absolute focus. Rhythms fuse together and phase apart, club tracks tunnel into an anxious wilderness, with themes and textures emerging as threads throughout the record, wormholing between each track. There is a sense of the seen and the unseen, an honest tension between music as function (for this world) and as artistic exploration (for another world) as cracks in the surface appear to reveal the odd and alien minutiae within. Koch represents an intimate and revelatory new phase in Lee Gambles practice. Producing tracks that can live and grow on their own in a club or personal listening environment, the artists exploratory framework creates threads of consistency and tension between disparate spaces, locations, and mental states." - Pan.

Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"With I Love You, Please Love Me Too, Joseph Hammer continues his journey into playful yet heavily focused idiot-savant infinite psychedelic inertia. Utilizing consumer audio technology and 20th century detritus, Hammer lovingly decodes his passion for mid-century sci-fi and AM radio stations beyond all point of recognition like a snake charmer. Multi-dimensional audio collage techniques to a freeform and completely unorthodox plunderphonic hypnosis. Baked devotionals for tape loop minds. Joseph Hammer, a sound artist from Los Angeles, has actively created experimental works since 1980 as a member of the LAFMS collective. His practice draws on the complexities of the process of listening and playing, reflecting on the role of the audience versus the performer, and uses music as it influences our notion of time, memory and intimacy as the basis for improvisation and abstraction. In various collaborations, solo, and as a founding member of the trio Solid Eye along with several other projects (Joe & Joe, Dinosaurs With Horns, Dimmer, Points of Friction), Hammer has performed widely and is an influential contributor to the Los Angeles underground scene. The LP is mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Intersex is the debut LP by Steven Warwick aka Heatsick. The title references the work of German sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld, looking at how music and sexuality can operate in flux on a constantly sliding scale. Executed on just a Casio keyboard and manipulated loops via guitar pedals, Intersex deliberately evokes "ersatz" notions of electronic dance music and early electronics in the line of Roberto Cacciapaglias Ann Steel record, the work of Warner Jepson and the kaleidoscopic sound of Ron Hardy, pushing dance/body music through a saturated psychedelic lens. Steven Warwick is a Berlin-based performer, also known for his work in the electronic duo, Birds Of Delay. His approach is one of carefully thought-out loops which are then sent into varying interactions and play. Active in the club, art and music scenes, Warwicks work is one existing in a luminal space, meditating both at once in real time and the "just past." The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

Price: $27.00
"Re-Engineering is the bold new album from Heatsick, aka Berlin-based British artist Steven Warwick. Well-known for his epic multi-hour live club sets and acerbic wit, he characterizes this collection of new material as a "cybernetic poem" that both indulges us in the mores of hypnotic dance music while holding a critical, and at times satirical, lens toward the culture writ large. The opening title-track is symbolic of this balance, the crisp spoken-word poetry communicating hyper-modernity in crisis in a piece that equally evokes the masked humor of Chic and the biting surreal-ity of Chris Morris. "Modern life is still rubbish you say. Modern rubbish is still life." The tracks "Mimosa" and "Speculative" play with a similar conflict, warping the themes of modern luxury familiar to Malcolm McLarens seminal Paris album, and delivering rare vocal lines that convey distance and a degree of uneasiness. The masterful club tracks that constitute the bulk of this album feel all the more powerful and honest when framed in this hyper-aware context, confirming the underlying inclusiveness in Warwicks music and perspective. We dance together, we crash together." - Pan.

Small warehouse find of this 2011 LP. "Deluxe vinyl issue of one of the most important albums of modern music and quite simply some of the finest computer audio excursions unleashed in recent years. Sun Pandamonium is the third full- length album from Florian Hecker, originally released in CD format on Mego in 2003. Sun Pandamonium also received the Award of Distinction Digital Music at the Prix Ars Electronica - the International Competition for CyberArts - the same year. Striking the listener from many angles with a diverse range of fiercely dynamic electronic scenarios, Hecker utilizes the computer to materialize new compositional strategies, leaving behind standard musical structures and seeking out unusual timbral and textural effects. As one reviewer stated, This record is electronic music as psilocybin science. Or, as the American online journal Pitchforkmedia states: Loud and overwhelming at any volume setting, Sun Pandamonium contains the sounds and frequencies not only of diamonds being sharpened, but then being used to etch directly on the lenses of your optical readers. Call him a sick fuck, a genius, or even Mister Antichrist, but this will cleanse the audio palate as it blows your teeth out.

Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“In 2010, acclaimed German sound experimentalist Florian Hecker and multidisciplinary artist Mark Leckey came together for the first time. Their combined Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera -- a mutant configuration of two genetically discrete solo works -- was originally presented as part of a two-day performance event at the Tate Modern called Push and Pull, and is now presented on LP. In Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera, Hecker decomposes, modulates, and re-synthesizes the vocal track from Leckeys 2010 performance piece GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction (for which Leckey intoned the inner monologue of a black Samsung fridge) and his own 3 Channel Chronics installation from that same year, where distinct sounds from three speakers telescoping down from the ceiling were combined and altered by visitors movements. The resulting work -- like that three-headed beast of Greek mythology -- is a multivalent, tri-part hybrid in which heavily distorted fragments of Leckeys narrative intersperse Heckers synthetic textures and fidgety tonal patterns. On the PAN release itself, channel 1 from Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera corresponds with side A and channel 2 with side B; channel 3 is available as a monophonic mp3 download. Florian Hecker returns to PAN following his 2011 vinyl issue of Sun Pandämonium. Trained in computational linguistics and fine arts, Heckers work deals with specific compositional developments of post-war modernity, electro-acoustic music, and psychophysical domains of audition. Mark Leckey is a British artist, pop-culture provocational agent, and self-described autodidact working across sculpture, sound, film, and performance. His notable video works (collaged from found material) include the 1999 cult short Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (soundtrack available on The Death of Rave (LECKEY 001LP)) and Industrial Lights and Magic, for which he was awarded the Turner Prize in 2008. A career retrospective, "Lending Enchantment to Vulgar Materials," was presented at WIELS in Belgium, and his work is included in the collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou, Hammer Museum, and Walker Art Center, among others. He has served as Film Studies professor at the Städelschule in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany, and is currently Reader in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, London. The first comprehensive monograph of his work, On Pleasure Bent, was published in 2014. Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera is written and produced by Florian Hecker; GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction courtesy of Mark Leckey. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M.

Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Impossible Symmetry is the third full length record by Helm, the project of London-based artist Luke Younger. It marks a new chapter in the artists canon as its his first to be informed by live performance rather than studio experimentation. The recording and engineering was primarily a solo venture, with some technical assistance from John Hannon on a few tracks. Most of the compositions were created out of ideas/improvisations that were conceived in a live context and then fed back into the studio work. The album was recorded over the duration of a year in London with source material culled from acoustic sound sources in a similar methodology to his previous album, Cryptography, while also simultaneously incorporating more extensive use of electronic elements and moments of rhythmic dark ambience recalling the outputs from early Coil and Cabaret Voltaire to even Traversable Wormholes industrial minimalism. His last LP, Cryptography, presented a five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study which uses processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and broken guitar strings. Younger creates a world where these instruments morph into spectral rust, a shimmering klang swims alongside passive noise and the relationship between acoustic and electronic derived sounds forms a solid foundation. This sound is steered through a mélange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in a post-industrial fashion with a commitment to homemade exploratory zeal. For the past ten years, Younger has also performed extensively in Europe and the U.S. with Steven Warwick as pioneering avant-drone duo Birds Of Delay. The LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

Title: Olympic Mess
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
Pressed on 140-gram vinyl. "London-based experimentalist Luke Younger (aka Helm) returns to PAN with Olympic Mess, a record born of destructive practice, competing desires, and troubled optimism. Where his previous effort, 2014s The Hollow Organ (PAN 050EP), dealt in dense, distressed sonics, Olympic Mess is Younger responding to a period spent engaged with loop-based industrial music, dub techno, and balearic disco. These musical references, all of which can induce hypnotic states and feelings of euphoria, inform ten evocative aural landscapes that unfurl over the course of an hour and act almost as a counterpoint to the turmoil that spawned them. "Its about exploring a perverse desire to pull the rug from under yourself, and the struggle to achieve a healthy equilibrium between ones personal and artistic lives," Younger says. "Dealing with the problematic consequences of pushing your own limits, forming and dissolving relationships, transient lifestyles, physical and mental exhaustion, excess, and other kinds of personal chaos." Crafted using an array of heavily processed samples, found sound, and electroacoustics, personal conflict manifests in "I Exist in a Fog" and "Outerzone 2015," in which visceral noise disintegrates into veiled, ambient strata. The disquieting crescendos of "The Evening in Reverse" and "Fluid Cloak" offer no such relief, while the title-track and "Dont Lick the Jacket" are mineral, multilayered abstractions twisting around a brittle pulse. Following a period of extensive touring throughout the States and Europe, which included 20 dates in support of Danish punk group Iceage, Olympic Mess was recorded in London, New York, and Berlin by Sean Ragon, Luke Younger, and John Hannon. The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. It features photography by Kim Thue and artwork by Bill Kouligas.” - Pan.

Price: $19.00
"PAN presents four vital concrète incursions by nether field-traveler Luke Younger aka Helm, marking his first transmissions since the studio rituals that birthed his highly-acclaimed Impossible Symmetry and Silencer releases. The Hollow Organ toes a deliberate line in the mud between his previous transgressions and a chokingly dank realization of his most untoward, paralytic sound. Poised as a dark interpreter between the grotesque and the transcendent, he activates research gleaned from his petrifying live performances coupled with an increasingly squalid and visceral palette of anguished machine voices, sub-zero drones and bone-scraped rhythmic noise to divine, unearthly space somewhere between semi-legal horror soundtrack and hyperstitious surreality. Its opening gambit, "Carrier" is the most succinct and uncannily ambiguous; perilously close to Gas-like ambient pop but rescued from serenity by manic tape spool and an excoriating, demonic vocal. The vortex of "Analogues" proceeds, ploughed by stereo-twinned engines of churning tape loops to a pitch-black, eschatological climax, and "Spiteful Jester" feels like the unshakable onset of a panic attack, ratcheting the intensity with a blank-eyed, stoic method. For ten minutes "The Hollow Organ" drains last with an unnerving, quiet blood-letting of carmine iron drones evaporating ferric overtones while percussions clank in your blind-spot behind the screen." - Pan.

Title: Blaster

Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"New York-based conceptual artist James Hoff returns to PAN with Blaster, a document of his explorations of computer viruses as agents within the composition process. Specifically, Hoff used the Blaster virus to infect 808 beats and then utilized the mutated results as building blocks for seven new compositions. Hoffs interest in computer viruses lies in their ability to self-distribute through (and ultimately disrupt) networks of communication and Hoffs agency as an artist centers on placing these parasitic forms into pre-existing genres, such as dance music. Blaster is a timely exploration of the infectious qualities of sound, and how it too, as a carrier, makes its way through social networks, reduced to bits and programmed to infiltrate and replicate. "Viruses, like art, need a host. Preferably a popular one." Interested in ways in which the virus works could mutate and spread socially, the first side of Blaster contains these sonic presentations, and the second houses all of the artists infected samples and serves as a scratch record for DJs, an object of utility, and ultimately a provocation, mobilizing its new hosts as a point of potential transmission. Blaster is a logical progression from Hoffs PAN debut LP How Wheeling Feels When the Ground Walks Away, which dealt with aural documents of riots and disruptions, and the record is part of a larger body of work by the artist that also includes virus paintings." - Pan.

Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"PAN presents a 2CD set from experimental composer/artist/multi-instrumentalist Eli Keszler. The first disc features two ensemble versions of Cold Pin (PAN 021LP), previously released in a 2011 LP of the same title on PAN, plus a 26-minute, previously-unreleased live ensemble recording (mixed sextet and piano quintet; these are captured in contrasting acoustical spaces). The personnel for all three tracks is Eli Keszler (drums, percussion, crotales, guitar); Ashley Paul (alto saxophone, bass harp); Geoff Mullen (prepared guitar); Greg Kelley (trumpet); Reuben Son (bassoon) and Benny Nelson (cello). The second disc begins with the title-track, "Catching Net," a 17-minute score for string quartet and piano with the "Cold Pin" installation. It is performed by pianist Sakiko Mori and the Providence String Quartet: Carole Bestvater (violin); Rachel Panitch (violin); Chloë Kline (viola); Laura Cetilia (cello). The score is fully notated, timed with stopwatch markings rather than tempo or meter. Following are two recordings of Keszlers large-scale installations functioning on their own. "Collecting Basin" features piano strings/wires up to 250 feet long splayed from a two-story water tower in Shreveport, Louisiana, across two large, empty water purification basins, which acted as an amplifier for the sounds produced by the installation. A "solo" version of "Cold Pin" (without live performers) concludes the album. Tracks 1 and 3 on the first disc and track 2 on the second disc were recorded at the historic Cyclorama, a massive dome at the Boston Center for the Arts. "Cold Pin" was installed directly on a large curved wall in the dome, using micro-controlled motors and beaters to strike extended strings ranging in length from three to 25 feet. The 2CD is mastered by Rashad Becker at Clunk, in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. It is packaged in a pro-press digisleeve jacket which itself is housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve with extensive images from the installations, program notes, sketches of the installations, scores, electronic schematics from the projects, and accompanying drawings and artwork by Eli Keszler and Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

"Over two years in the making, Cold Pin is the new full-length record by Eli Keszler. Both a composition and stand-alone installation, 14 strings ranging in length from 25 to 3 feet are strung across a 15x40 curved wall, with motors attacking the strings, connected by microcontrollers, pick-ups and RCA cables. Recorded in Bostons historic Cyclorama, a massive dome built to house the Cyclorama of the Battle of Gettysburg painting in 1884. The B-side features, in addition, a "dry" version of the installation with motor attacks on metal squares rather than strings, creating dense percussive clusters. Cold Pin works within the frame work of left-to-right time and vertical structure. The installation acts as the architecture of the music, surrounding and immersing the live instruments into incredible density and sharp, angular mass shapes, and functions alone as the performers stop. Rather than an individual sound, the sustained horns, strings, drums and metallic attacks function as a singular unit, and continue, too, when they stop alongside the installation. Cold Pin features Eli Keszler (drums, crotales installation and guitar), Geoff Mullen (guitar), Ashley Paul (clarinet, guitar, greenbox), Greg Kelley (trumpet), Reuben Son (bassoon) and Benjamin Nelson (cello). Eli Keszler is a composer, artist and multi-instrumentalist based in New York City. In performance, he often plays drums, bowed crotales and guitar in conjunction with his installations. In his ensemble compositions, he uses extended strings, motors, crotales, horns and mechanical devices to create his sound, balancing intense harmonic formations with acoustic sustain, fast, jarring rhythm, mechanical propulsion, dense textures and detailed visual presentations. He has most recently won the Mata composers competition for the 2012 season. Eli Keszler is a graduate of the New England Conservatory in Boston where he studied with Anthony Coleman and Ran Blake. Limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering." -Pan

Alongside fellow members of Berlins Janus collective, behind nights at Berghain and Corsica Studios, M.E.S.H. is known for his futurist approach to club dynamics and production. On Piteous Gate, tightly gridded and sculpted sound juts up against loose-wristed improvisation, automated processes, and collage. Standard club syncopation is twisted by sliding tempos, cut-and-paste time signatures, and indeterminate pacing. Its sound design and compositions are ornate, even courtly, with neo-feudal moods offset by the recurrence of hydraulic hiss and flanger. A synthetic fuel injector revs opener "Piteous Gate" to life. Drawing from action-scifi film trailers and the sound design of festival trance, its hardcore synthlines shatter into "Optimate" -- stately, spatial, and whiplash-luxurious, with meandering cybernetic drumming. "Thorium" sends a slow-motion camera through a melting test reactor; all burnt VSTs and synthetic theorbo and loose drums. "The Black Pill" smears high-end renaissance sample libraries through arcs of static. In "Epithet," temple sewer atmospheres are ruptured by "Scythians"-style cut-up drums. "Jesters Visage" indulges a minute-long baroque guitar improv, and territorial youths air their beef in "Kritikal & X." Closing out the album, "Methy Imbiß" is a machinic rhythm track, and "Azov Seepage" mingles birdlike granular noises with rusted steel clanging. Recorded in Berlin in winter 2015.

Its sound design and compositions are ornate, even courtly, with neo-feudal moods offset by the recurrence of hydraulic hiss and flanger. A synthetic fuel injector revs opener "Piteous Gate" to life. Drawing from action-scifi film trailers and the sound design of festival trance, its hardcore synthlines shatter into "Optimate" -- stately, spatial, and whiplash-luxurious, with meandering cybernetic drumming. "Thorium" sends a slow-motion camera through a melting test reactor; all burnt VSTs and synthetic theorbo and loose drums. "The Black Pill" smears high-end renaissance sample libraries through arcs of static. In "Epithet," temple sewer atmospheres are ruptured by "Scythians"-style cut-up drums. "Jesters Visage" indulges a minute-long baroque guitar improv, and territorial youths air their beef in "Kritikal & X." Closing out the album, "Methy Imbiß" is a machinic rhythm track, and "Azov Seepage" mingles birdlike granular noises with rusted steel clanging. Recorded in Berlin in winter 2015. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.” - Pan.

Price: $19.00
“M.E.S.H. presents his debut Pan EP, Scythians. M.E.S.H is a frequent collaborator with contemporary artist Aleksandra Domanovic, and has exchanged remixes with Arca and Fatima Al Qadiri. "Scythians" introduces the textural depth of Foley blades and draining sewers to his distinctive combination of synthetic sheen and abstract breaks. "Interdictor" combines staggered sub kicks and crunching metallic textures with wavering chords over a staggered rhythm. On "Captivated," 808 kicks and an ominous voice punctuate hypnotic washes of noise and hi-hats. "Imperial Sewers" frames synthetic voices and growling pads within a majestic up-tempo hip-hop track. In the beatless "Glassel Finisher," metallic, resonant scratches cut through the air.” - Pan.

Artist: MARGINAL CONSORT
Title: INSTAL. Glasgow 2008
Format: 4 LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $46.00
"PAN is honored to present one of its boldest releases yet; a 4LP edition of a 3-hour set from the legendary Japanese group, Marginal Consort, recorded live at Arikas INSTAL 08 festival at The Arches, Glasgow. Marginal Consort is a Japanese avant-garde improvisational collective made of sound and visual artists, who were all students of Takehisa Kosugi at the radical Bigaku School of aesthetics in Tokyo in the 70s. The group is a reformation of the East Bionic Symphonia, who released an incredible long-form drone record in the early 80s, a large improvisation ensemble in the spirit of Kosugis Group Ongaku and Taj Mahal Travellers projects. Marginal Consort is formed around musicians Kazuo Imai (a student of Japanese free jazz linchpin Masayuki Takayanagi and also member of both Taj Mahal Travellers and Takayanagis New Direction Unit), Tomonao Koshikawa, Kei Shii, and sound-artist Masami Tada (also in GAP). This extended set explores forms of sound and ways of playing that never coalesce into music, but create a group dynamic of ebb and flow, of exploration and fluidity. Marginal Consort also featured previously artists Yasushi Ozawa, bassist in Keiji Hainos Fushitsusha, and Chie Mukai, from dreamy psychedelic group Che-Shizu. With this cast on board, they took their free improvisation to the streets to create drones and percussive interplay in urban communal harmony. "A form of sound that does not turn into music and a group that does not produce harmony; individual concepts and group fluidity; individuals who are at once independent entities and components of the whole; coexisting time frames and intersecting rhythms -- these are among the images of group improvisation that have occupied my mind since the 70s. These images neither presuppose specific elements nor regulate the entire process. There always remain, however, the fundamental premises that sounds are separately produced phenomena and that their accumulation forms the whole." --Kazuo Imai; 4LP mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering and pressed on 4x 140 gram vinyls which themselves are housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve. - Features liner notes by Barry Esson, extended photo documentation by Bryony McIntyre and artwork by Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Title: Financial Glam
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Jar Moff returns with his second full-length, Financial Glam, a follow-up expanding on ideas first presented by the excellent Commercial Mouth debut LP PAN released earlier this year. Continuing with themes established on his previous LP, Financial Glam reflects the flux and tension of his home city, a gripping opus of grandiose crescendo and collapse, broken rhythm and disquieting calm. These intricately-composed collage works, constructed from hundreds of archived samples, provide a fitting and highly-personal soundtrack to austerity in the shadow of empire. The craft hints at a years worth of meticulous assembly and industry; the album title hints at a biting critique of the circus outside. The combination of Jar Moffs technique, ear and unique perspective on, and proximity to, one of the defining stories of our era makes this release a truly important work. A-side "Financial Glam" builds with growing fanfare and unease, the malaise occasionally tamed by sublime stabs of synth and rhythm. B-side "Kresentosiagona" (translation: "Crescendo of the Jaw") is characterized by a complex rhythmic treatment of individual orchestral samples. The perpetual escalation of the instruments begins to form a fragile and perilous platform over time, its fragile movements and majesty ever close to the crash. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering and pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Title: Som Sakrifis
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Based in Greece, Mohammad make long-form drone works that explore the lower end of the frequency spectrum while retaining an intense emotional capacity. The results are monumental, slow-moving blocks of sound, both daunting and musical. The sheer weight of these recordings is impressive, the interplay of the musicians and instruments staggering, this end result being an album rich with harmonious abstraction which highlights years of dedication to their unique path. Following on from their previous releases (the highly-regarded Roto Vildblomma CD and the Spiriti 3LP box, both on Antifrost) Som Sakrifis follows the trio through three tracks of deep space experimentation where the acoustic and electronic blend together as a monumental whole. Listening to Som Sakrifis takes the listener on an expansive journey through the netherworld of the low range while retaining distinct traces of musicality. The time and space in these works have a logic more akin to that of Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr than any contemporary music references. Monumental monochromatic movement is the order of the day. Sit back, strap in and let these fine explorers take you way out into the nether world. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Semblances and cross-references entwine the 11 original tracks and Objekts existing recordings, shaping a powerful and absorbing album that weaves between the alien and the hauntingly familiar.

"British free-jazz phenomenon Evan Parker with electronic and tape noise artist John Wiese in a set of real-time evolving improvisations intended for maximum volume. Vinyl version of the CD released earlier this year (2010), but slightly different, containing all the final mixes and edits of the sessions with a new and more intense mastering for the maximum listening experience. C-Section finds density in scarcity -- deep, glacial muck bubbles emerge beneath Parkers inhuman circular breathing, only to plunge into an incessant clatter of industrial landscape. Evan Parker is a free-sax legend, best known for his work with Keith Rowe (AMM), Anthony Braxton, Joe McPhee, Cecil Taylor, Peter Brotzmann (including on his epochal Machine Gun), Derek Bailey, and for his inspired, individualistic take on musical freedom. Being the U.K.s equivalent of Peter Brotzmann means that as far as free-jazz saxophonists go, Evan Parker has very few equals. Hugely respected with a rich and varied back catalogue, Parker has graced the cream of the free-jazz racks for the last forty years. John Wiese is an artist and composer from Los Angeles, California. His recent works have a focus on installation and multi-channel diffusions, as well as scoring for large ensembles. He has toured extensively throughout the world, covering the U.S., U.K., Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. He is also a founding member of the concrète grindcore band Sissy Spacek.

"Jeff Witscher aka Rene Hell is a notoriously unique artist and nomadic SoCal everyman. An avid chess player, he occupies the role of both trickster and aesthete, an embodied example of a time where experimental ideas and attitudes switched fluidly between the club and gallery. Travel is a central theme of his work, with the digital and minimalist palette on Vanilla Call Option built while on the move between airports, performance spaces and public libraries. In his own words, Witscher attempted to construct "vertical narratives" that at times evoke the musique concrète of Bernard Parmegiani and probing electronic experiments of Charles Dodge. Rejecting melody to form a new language of timbre, timing and flight, these crisp compositions oscillate between flux and grandeur, piercing synthesis and meditative piano, strings, and voice." - Pan.

"Following on from his Kassettmusik release, Vidöppna Sår is an evolution in scum-brow field recordings and voice recorded to mono tape -- akin to OU Revue -- recorded on a building site. This record shows the development, as witnessed from his recent live performances, of aggressive blur build-up and ominous restraint, tape speed replacing effect pedals, going beyond the mere junk noise description and closer to the original idea of musique concrete, namely altering everyday sounds onto tape into a wholly other vocabulary. Sewer Election is Dan Johansson, based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is most known for his extreme and nasty noise on often limited edition cassettes and obscure vinyl releases on labels such as iDEAL, Troniks, Chondritic Sound, Release the Bats!, Freak Animal, Segerhuva, and Gameboy to name a few. He is a member of the Swedish collective Utmarken and lo-fi group Attestupa. What separates him from the rest of the wall-of-noise heads is that he is great at creating uncomfort and filth. To experience his stuff is like experiencing pure power and energy through subtle and restrained soundscapes of a world falling into pieces.

"Double LP pressed on 140-gram vinyl. PAN digs into the archives of WordSound label founder Skiz Fernando Jr. (aka Spectre) to reissue for the first time his 1998 experimental hip-hop mixtape, Ruff Kutz, originally released as an extremely limited edition cassette. A definitive mixtape featuring hits, remixes, previously unreleased tracks, and dub-plate specials from Sensational, Mr. Dead, Bill Laswell, Jungle Brothers, Kevin Martin, and many more. The early 90s witnessed a spike in mutant strains of future dub. In Bristol, trip-hop and jungle were on the rise; in Manhattan it was noise and breakbeat. But in Brooklyn, hip-hop experimentation was gaining momentum, led by Skizs independent label WordSound. With support from Bill Laswell, WordSound charted the experimental edge of hip-hop and dub, taking equal inspiration from Bronx rap and Jamaican roots music as they pioneered a lo-fi sound both primal and futuristic. By the turn of the decade, the combination of dub, ambient, and hip-hop aesthetics had been baptized by The Wire magazine as "illbient" -- a short-lived classification now being exhumed in the form of Spectres obscure mixtape, Ruff Kutz. Ruff Kutz revisits the years between 1994 and 98, a formative era for WordSound and experimental beats in general. The original cassette, according to Skiz, was composed of alternative mixes, obscure beats, and unreleased tracks and edits. Unsigned material from Dubadelic (supergroup of Bill Laswell, Ted Parsons, DXT, and others), rapper Sensational, Kevin "The Bug" Martins Techno Animal project, Professor Shehab as his lyrical alter-ego Psycho Priest, Djini Brown, Mr. Dead of the Metabolics, Doc Israel, Scotty Hard, and Slotek all appear throughout this vinyl reissue, fully mastered for the first time from the original DAT tapes in their original sequence.

"An extraordinary combination of culled found and taped fragments juxtaposed against drums, field recordings and mystery noises, sound loops, birdsong, keyboards and emanations of Ghédalia Tazartès own throaty drones and voice propelled by hypnotic, ritualistic rhythms balanced on a razor-sharp edge. This is the complete work of Repas Froid; previously released on CD in 2009 as brief tracks of source material and a palette of various sounds. It includes archival and as of yet previously-unreleased recordings from the late 1970s and early 1980s, strung together to form two long compositions. A French musician of Turkish parentage, Ghédalia Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. Born in 1947 in Paris, he is one of Frances most idiosyncratic talents. He has spent over 30 years within musical practice and experimentation, letting his musical work wander from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Manipulating magnetic tape recorders into a rough collage and loose ethno-instrumental mulch, he paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies.

Title: Clonic Earth
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"The experimental Italian composer, Valerio Tricoli, returns to PAN with a new album, Clonic Earth. His ongoing output for the label has long-presented his electroacoustic sound compositions which utilizes analog live sampling and real-time editing of field and studio recordings by manipulation of 1/4 inch tape. Asides from being a founding member of the Italian avant-rock group 3/4HadBeenEliminated, he has worked extensively with various musicians, choreographers and multimedia artists including Thomas Ankersmit, Antoine Chessex, Werner Dafeldecker, Anthony Pateras, and Robert Piotrowicz. His studio compositions often explore themes of the internal - psychological and physical - and of the occult, which, with the use of spoken text, makes them often deeply existential works, self-investigations of the irrational horror within. Clonic Earth is a perturbing, yet compelling mind-expanding work, marked by compositional strategies of exploded narratives, psychological insight and oracular literary references, where questions about the boundaries of spatial perception in the decoding processes of acousmatic music. Tricolis allegorical and philosophical universe takes the form of an unhinged minds landscape swarming with estranged sound objects in the complexity of details and surrealistic effects of Hieronymus Boschs larger paintings. Compared to his previous works, the content of Clonic Earth explores more synthesized and heavily processed sounds, especially vocals, often appearing in the form of a religious, electrified chanting. The record is described by its author as a natural consequence of the internal collapse depicted in his previous record, Miseri Lares (PAN 044LP): "As if all the debris left inside my loudspeakers have been ignited to expand into the ether, to find a justification at the principle of Chaos, or Cosmos alike." This movement is expressed by references to the theme of fire as original matter in the Chaldean Oracles which, together with the later work of Philip K. Dick, are the main sources for the vocal/text elements of the composition. Fire serves the author a metaphor for the acousmatic listening experience itself: a borderline perception of sounds eternally fixed in their spasmodic disappearance, which could eventually drag us into a different layer of reality, drastically changing, subverting, or expanding the space in which they are diffused. A ritual, somehow, which may link the listener and the perceptive space that he inhabits with whatever lies beyond the loudspeakers - beyond the vibrating surface of the world.

Title: Miseri Lares
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $31.00
“It has been 7 years since Metaprogramming from Within the Eye of the Storm, the last solo full-length release by Valerio Tricoli. In the years between, he has established himself as a formidable presence on the international experimental live circuit and released acclaimed collaborations with Antoine Chessex, Coi Tormenti (Dilemma Records, 2010) and Thomas Ankersmit, Forma II (PAN 016CD, 2011) along with the fifth full-length release by his band with fellow Italian cohorts 3/4HadBeenEliminated, Oblivion (ZEIT 011CD, 2010). Throughout these shows, collaborations and ongoing explorations, Valerio has developed on his signature style of beautifully unsettling musique concrète. The result of his tireless explorations, Miseri Lares is his magnum opus, a multilayered and heavily nuanced work which epitomizes the uncanny in the realm of sound. Miseri Lares explores a variety of interlocking themes and sonic tapestries that combine in a quietly disturbing and deeply existential work. As a contemporary take on musique concrète, Tricoli utilizes his full explorations of the Revox tape recorder alongside digital processing, while retaining all of the mystery and surprise elements found in the classic approach of pioneers such as Bernard Parmegiani, Eugeniusz Rudnik and Michel Chion.

As a symbol of spirits preying on the grief within, haunting wisps of sound swirl around a throbbing bass in "Hic Labor Ille Domus et Inextricabilis Error," whereas "La Casa Deviata" emphasizes the paranoid structure as looming creaks make way for abandoned pipes and a cloud of escaping water.

Title: Miseri Lares
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $31.00
"Limited repress. It has been 7 years since Metaprogramming from Within the Eye of the Storm, the last solo full-length release by Valerio Tricoli. In the years between, he has established himself as a formidable presence on the international experimental live circuit and released acclaimed collaborations with Antoine Chessex, Coi Tormenti (Dilemma Records, 2010) and Thomas Ankersmit, Forma II (PAN 016CD, 2011) along with the fifth full-length release by his band with fellow Italian cohorts 3/4HadBeenEliminated, Oblivion (ZEIT 011CD, 2010). Throughout these shows, collaborations and ongoing explorations, Valerio has developed on his signature style of beautifully unsettling musique concrète. The result of his tireless explorations, Miseri Lares is his magnum opus, a multilayered and heavily nuanced work which epitomizes the uncanny in the realm of sound. Miseri Lares explores a variety of interlocking themes and sonic tapestries that combine in a quietly disturbing and deeply existential work. As a contemporary take on musique concrète, Tricoli utilizes his full explorations of the Revox tape recorder alongside digital processing, while retaining all of the mystery and surprise elements found in the classic approach of pioneers such as Bernard Parmegiani, Eugeniusz Rudnik and Michel Chion. Themes of the internal, represented by both the psychological and the physical, play throughout the record. As a symbol of spirits preying on the grief within, haunting wisps of sound swirl around a throbbing bass in "Hic Labor Ille Domus et Inextricabilis Error," whereas "La Casa Deviata" emphasizes the paranoid structure as looming creaks make way for abandoned pipes and a cloud of escaping water.

Artist: VAINIO/KEVIN DRUMM/AXEL DORNER/LUCIO CAPECE, MIKA
Title: Venexia
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Pan presents a collaborative album from Mika Vainio (electronics), Kevin Drumm (electronics), Axel Dörner (trumpet, computer) and Lucio Capece (soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, shruti box). Vainio, Drumm, Dörner and Capece have strong points in common, that have been executed in different contexts. The musical map is generally divided into categories that are determined by its most evident and often banal elements; if it has beats or not, if it is quiet or loud, if it has raw material or a carefully worked aesthetic. These four musicians have been working using all the previous elements, but these elements did not determine the music, they were used at the service of deeper ideas related to time and perception. How the sound of our environment can become music, how can music be attractive without telling a story, the work of sound in its extreme: noise, granular and delicate, digital, electronic, instrumental extended techniques, preparations. The musicians involved in this project have worked with each other in various formations: Kevin Drumm and Axel Dörner started working together in the late 90s as part of a trio with Paul Lovens; as a duo they released an influential album on Erstwhile Records. Mika Vainio and Lucio Capece released Trahnie, an album they worked on for three years. Capece and Dörner worked on several projects together, including a residence with Keith Rowe working on Treatise by Cornelius Cardew. Capece and Vainio have been part of the Vladislav Delay Quartet. Capece has played and toured with Kevin Drumm in a trio with Radu Malfatti... finally, theyve all come together on Venexia, recorded in Venice and mixed by Capece with minimal edits. The LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates and Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with photos by Traianos Pakioufakis and artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Artist: VIDA, ANDRE
Title: Brud: Volumes I-III
Format: Triple CD
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Brud is a three volume compilation of recordings from 1995 to 2011 by Andre Vida, morphing seamlessly between a sense of total irreverence and the sublime. His spontaneous compositions and notated works are the angled mirrored counterparts of a transient saxophone-driven performance language, drawing on elements of 1970s performance art, new music, improvisation cult, folk and pop hybrids, channeling them into asymmetrical tunes of feral beauty. Brud traces the development of Vidas wayward language through 16 years of copious ruminations. The three delightfully polymorphic, perverse discs unite sparkling solo sax, pieces for cello and woodwind sextet, synth/concrete electronic music, nocturnal improvisations, rare 90s New York free jazz compositions, and the Kreuzberg suite -- a distilled culmination of a hundred nights of Berlin mayhem into ecstatic, swinging lyricism -- both solo works and as well as various collaborations with Anthony Braxton, Rashad Becker, Axel Dörner, Matt "MV" Valentine, Tim Barnes, Helen Rush, Olaf Rupp, Clare Cooper, Clayton Thomas, Brandon Evans, Elisabeth King, Steve Heather and many more. Andre Vida is a Hungarian American saxophonist, composer and lyricist living in Berlin. More downtown cheeky grin than mere caveman smile, he is cosmically notorious for continuing the Rahsaan Roland Kirk one-man horn section legacy with hydra-headed style. He has been at the forefront of several major developments in experimental music, being mainly in Anthony Braxtons original Ghost Trance Ensemble, as founding member of New York collective the CTIA, subsequent "freak folk" groups such as The Tower Recordings, and his extensive collaborations with electronic music visionaries Jamie Lidell, Tim Exile and Kevin Blechdom, Elton John, Gonzales, Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, to name but a few, sewing up some heavy threads in downtown sax patchwork refracted through a Borgesian lens. Limited edition of 1,000 copies. Packaged in a pro-press digisleeve jacket in a one-tone silk-screened PVC sleeve." -Pan

Artist: VISIONIST
Title: Safe
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"140-gram LP version. Having partnered with Bill Kouligas in 2015 to relaunch his Lost Codes imprint as Codes, Visionist takes a defining step forward with the release of his debut album, Safe. The South London artist born Louis Carnell broke during a period of experimentation in UK music when, with the disintegration of the dubstep scene, emerging producers began looking to juke and Chicago house for inspiration. A pair of EPs on Lit City Trax (and a collaboration with Fatima Al Qadiri) in 2013 and 14 introduced Visionists minimalist take on fractured R&B and liquid grime, establishing him as a leading voice in new wave UK soundsystem culture. On Safe, Visionist sculpts and extends that signature into new terrain and makes his most personal statement yet. Distilling his influences down to a sparse palette of manipulated folk, pop, and R&B a cappellas; icy synths; and metallic drum samples, he plays off ever-present anxiety and his own battle not to let it overwhelm him. "Comfort, protection, salvation -- this is what we search for," he says. "We are taught that a life of no worries is better for us, and therefore we try to create one that is Safe." But while safe as a musical concept implies conformity, Safe as an artistic statement is anything but. At a moment when the UK scene, once known for innovation, has settled into rehashing old tropes, Visionist continues to propel his sound into more experimental territory. The album traces the arc of an anxiety attack, from its onset through to recovery. Following the stately discord of brief opener "You Stayed," the grimy, ballistic assault of "Victim" sends its targets diving into mirrored corners. "Ive Said" is a brutal, almost militant advance, its sound cutting in and out as though transmitted via shortwave radio. "Too Careful to Care" trades in skittering paranoia, with the soporific "Sleep Luxury" closing out affairs. Since 2012, Visionist has toured extensively throughout Europe, The Unites States, and Asia, appearing at industry standard clubs and festivals like Fabric, Berghain, Sonar, and Unsound as well as various underground venues. He has scored music for Kenzo, Liam Hodges, and Roxanne Farahmand in the world of fashion, and remixed Kelis, Ghostpoet, and Glasser. In 2014, he supported FKA Twigs on her first-ever UK tour.

Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“Antwerp-based nonconformist Dennis Tyfus debuts on PAN under his Vom Grill moniker with the Knerpen! (bevel) LP. Tyfuss dealings in unstable media -- spanning paintings and illustrations, films, radio transmissions and more -- reflect the freeform, sometimes parodic nature of his sonic output, which has been archived on his own Ultra Eczema imprint alongside many outsider, weirdo, and noise underground artists. Knerpen! (bevel) is a jarring collage of skewed electronics, tape loops, and treated vocals. Opening sequence "I" writhes and seizes with electricity. Skull-resonant clangs are sucked and scrunched back into themselves, before throbs of condensed static give way to the sound of someone rummaging around inside the bodies of acoustic instruments. On B-side "II," Tyfus multitracks the vocalizations of opera singer Emilie Fleamountains into an empyrean choir, before winding back the tape into a foaming-at-the-mouth mechanical meltdown. The 140-gram LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. It features photography by Dennis Tyfus and layout by Bill Kouligas.” - Pan. "What arouses the interest of Dennis Tyfus, with his difficult feet, is a clear, artful and wild realism whose extravagance never leaves one indifferent and can be summarised above all as the attempt to have fun in the end, after all." - Wim van Mulders.

"Keith Fullerton Whitman bursts back with his first full length record in four years, Disingenuity b/w Disingenuousness, comprising of two pieces of forward thinking electronic music with a deep exploration into the analogue sound. Live and studio recordings of the past two years (Cambridge-New York-Toronto) were used as source material, which were then realized into two longform compositions. Using a Musique Concrète approach of deconstructed sounds (ala Pietro Grossi, Costin Miereanu, Basil Kirchin, Dub Taylor, etc), Disingenuity b/w Disingenuousness encompasses various reference points from François Bayle, Jacques Lejeune, Richard Pinhas & Heldon to the minimal textures of Basic Channel / Chain Reaction axis... Both tape-collage pieces which derived from an hour-long improvisation based around a setup involving a tape of chance field-recordings (a helicopter, walking on snow, children) bounced to a mono nagra tape machine, which is covered in contact mics that translate not just the sound coming from the speakers, but the actual mechanical interface of the unit into control voltage & triggers that drive a modular synth thats processing said audio using the classic electronic music toolkit (i.e. ring modulation, panning VCAs, filters, etc). The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

Title: Seven of Wands

Price: $18.00
"As a composer, John Wiese is an elusive one. Employing a very healthy range of conceptual framework throughout his oevure, hes unmistakably recognizable, but rarely easy to predict. No matter what the sound, we find it always sounds like Wiese. Seven Of Wands contains a romanticism only hinted at previously. Comprised of pieces from a range of eras and sequenced into a narrative arc, this very unique album has a quality of being beautiful, listenable, immersive, and transportive all at once. On this latest, we find more emphasis on beauty and musical qualities, employing strategies and techniques of musique concrete and electroacoustic music throughout, all the while further emphasizing the mixing desk as a true instrument. Two of the albums central pieces were developed while touring the U.S., UK and Europe with Liars, No Age, and (in quadraphonic) Matmos, and feature source material contributed by Angus Andrew (voice, field recording) and Julian Gross (percussion) of Liars.

Title: Fanfare & Contrapunctus/Imago
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: Greece
Price: $27.00
"Vinyl issue of two very important works by this early British sound poet and electronic composer, compiling one of Trevor Wisharts first ever pieces Fanfare & Contrapunctus (from 1976) and one of his latest, Imago (from 2002), documenting a modern approach in composition and an extremely unique progress in sound manipulation and music technology.        Fanfare & Contrapunctus (1976): These two short pieces were made at the newly opened electronic studio at the Sydney Conservatorium, before the advent of music computer technology. The source material derives from free improvisations by Trevor Wishart and Martin Mayes using soft trumpets, pop-guns, French Horn and virtuoso eating noises, plus recordings of birdsong and other environmental sources.        Imago (2002) ...the universe in a grain of sand... Imago is a piece of magical sound metamorphosis in which the single clink of two whisky glasses gradually metamorphoses into a multitude of other sounds, eventually alluding to the sounds of birdsong, a junkyard gamelan, the ocean and the human voice, but never entirely abandoning its links to this minimal source. The piece was made using sound transformation software written by the composer, available through the Composers Desktop Project, and the original source sound was taken from Jonty Harrisons et ainsi de suite.        The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly- lined inner sleeve.

Price: $27.00
2017 repress. "The enigmatic Tennessee-raised, Turin-based Yves Tumor presents Serpent Music, a poignant album recorded between Miami, Leipzig, Los Angeles and Berlin over three years. Evolved from a diverse and prolific creative history under an expansive plethora of covert aliases via various forward-thinking labels, Yves Tumor emerges as his most personal and matured incarnation to date. With involvement across various artistic outlets expanding to fashion such as a visceral live performance for LAs Hood By Air earlier this year, the global artist has built a distinctly bold personal aesthetic both musically and visually as a performer. Painstakingly written from pieces developed upon since 2013, Serpent Music was initially composed as a soul record - based around delicate and emotive songwriting in various forms. It was a highly difficult project to undertake on both a creative and personal level, weaving thematic links through paranoia, social anxiety, and missing loved ones. "The songs come from a much more emotional and very vulnerable place... Theyre very close to me and Ive been cautious of how I would eventually present them to the world." he explains. The album spans sonically diverse and richly-textured pieces, formed from live, organic instruments, samples and various field recordings. Dreamlike lo-fi psychedelia sits alongside broken electronic experimentations, ambient compositions between abrasive noise, offering insight into a haunting otherworld. From melodic choral vocals and soaring synths, to screeching guitar riffs, dramatic spoken word samples and live drumming, Serpent Music evidently moves through a strange and intriguing personal journey. "Broke In" features Oxhy. The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M. Features photography by Daniel Sannwald." - Pan.

Price: $20.00
“First vinyl reissue of this Swedish psych treasure. Captured on tape with two microphones deep down in a basement in the university town of Lund, the eight songs that make up Tramseböx are full of crude DIY-charm. The album was privately released on Chockskivor in 1976 on a couple of hundred copies and has become a collectors item ever since, on occasion demanding up to $1000. Listening to it, its easy to understand why those who have heard it love it so much. Although the band sound very young and inexperienced, somehow they manage to create an eerie atmosphere that works really well. The best tracks on this largely instrumental LP are downer psychedelia with jammy parts and some progressive moves added for good measure. The live recording - with vocals added afterwards in a professional studio - fits the vibes perfectly and only enhances the experience. While Tramseböx is difficult to compare to other albums, most people will hear traces of Swedish, American and German underground rock. The bastard child of Träd, Gräs och Stenar, Bent Wind and Grave? Limited to 350 copies, remastered from the original tapes for ultimate clarity, infosheet with photos from the bands archive and liner notes by Patrick Lundborg.” - Papaaver.

Title: Semikolon
Format: LP

Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Originally created as a 6-part radio series in 1965, and released in 1966 by Sveriges Radio. This is the first LP recording by either of these composers. Recorded at EMS (Elektron Musik Studion), the newly established studio facility at Swedish Radio. This pioneering work did not easily fit in any category that existed at the time. Inspired by the work of Öyvind Fahlström (who was a pioneer of concrete poetry along with the Lettrists and Futurists), a few young Swedish artists began exploring new text-based experiments. The only other artist releasing records of similar soundworks at this early time in Sweden was Åke Hodell who had released two 7" singles. These Swedish sound poets differ in style from their other European counterparts mainly due to their easy access to the high quality facilities available at EMS, with its own in-house engineers and sophisticated studio equipment. Given the close relationship at that time between EMS and the national Swedish radio station, their works often have a strong narrative (radio art) quality. Semikolon is one such work. By 1967, Bodin and Johnson had together finally agreed upon a term for this particular style of sound poetry; text-sound composition. This term was then taken up by other Swedish artists working in the same field including Hodell and Sten Hanson, and soon became internationally-recognized. The following year Bodin and Johnson in association with Fylkingen inaugurated the first annual festival of text-sound composition. This international festival, and the commissions it gave rise to, became a major part of the work at Fylkingen and EMS. The festival ran for 10 years. 7 LPs from the early years were released by Sveriges Radio and more recently Fylkingen have compiled the series as a 5CD set. Naturally, both artists were included in the festivals, but they also created a large body of work which appeared on many of the essential anthologies of European sound poetry at the time, including the Revue OU and Klankteksten (released by the Stedelijk Museum in 1970 to accompany their exhibition of concrete poetry), as well as other international compilations. Both artists have also worked in the area of pure electro-acoustic composition, and these works are also mostly available on compilations. This record though, is a collaboration rather than a compilation and retains a timeless contemporary feel that is shared with other radio art projects like the Hörspiel Heute series released by Luchterhand in the 70s. This new vinyl edition of the original LP adds an extra 7-minute composition by Bodin, also taken from the original Semikolon radio series. Includes 4-page, hand-numbered insert; edition of 300." -Paradigm.

Mentioned on the pivotal Nurse With Wound list, it remains a little known classic and one of the most unique listening experiences in modern experimental music. Recorded between 1974 and 1976 in locations as diverse as factories, the pyramid opposite Harry Trumans grave site, as well as more "conventional" concert settings. Beyond The Black Crack is a dark, dizzying and exhilarating journey through free jazz, electronics and environmental sound, all shattered by Frizzells radical tape editing.

On vinyl for the first time, Paradigm Discs hand-numbered reissue opens another window into the incredibly fruitful astral alignment that occurred over London at this time." - Paradigm Discs.

Title: Music and Words 2
Format: CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Music and Words 2 is the much-delayed second installment in an ongoing series of archival documents of Adam Bohmans early work. As with the first volume, this CD is divided into two separate areas of his work. Adam is probably best known as an improviser, playing prepared instruments and objects, but the music here uses little of these purely-improvised techniques. On this CD, the musical sections consist of idiosyncratic lo-fi songs alongside short collage pieces and other experiments, recorded on stereo and 4-track cassette recorders. Most of these pieces date from the early 80s, but the earliest recording is from 1977. The spoken-word sections on this CD are centered on excerpts from three talking tapes -- a trip to Southend, a concert series in Wiesbaden and a day in the life, in London. Anyone who has known Adam for any length of time will know that he frequently records his observations to a small portable cassette recorder. These are often recorded for friends and music contacts from all over the world. As with the musical contributions, all of these cassettes exist in very small quantities, and often they are editions of only one copy. Although there is an obvious difference in these two types of recorded material, there exists a light and humorous common thread that runs through many of the 28 tracks. This is the third solo release from Bohman on Paradigm Discs. He also appears on all three of the Morphogenesis CDs, and contributed to the first-ever Paradigm release, Variations, a compilation of London-based artists from 1995." --Clive Graham.

Artist: BURROUGHS, WILLIAM S.
Title: Curse Go Back
Format: LP
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"William Burroughs was in and out of London from the mid-50s to 1974 and for several years quite settled in a flat near Piccadilly. During this latter time he developed and refined the techniques he used for creating cut-ups on tape. Working closely with Ian Sommerville, who helped acquire, and no doubt maintain, the various tape recorders that Burroughs used and abused in these experimental works. The work here is in two sections, which in their original form lasted for over an hour and first appeared in 1998 under the name Electronic Revolution as a free CD with Issue One of the French magazine Crash. The CD was quickly withdrawn with maybe only 100 copies finding their way into circulation. This edition is edited down to 46 minutes and comprises the core of the original recording. It employs the now familiar techniques of random drop-ins and cut-ups of readings. The readings themselves are also cut-ups of words on the page. The first section of the tape uses further processing by means of a second tape recorder. Recorded in Duke Street in 1968, the tape was then passed on to Brion Gysin in Paris where it remained in his archive until 1998. This is the first readily available edition of an hypnotic and meditative recording that examines the hidden power of words. Closer to work of sound poetry than anything literary. The album includes a 12"x12" insert with an essay by Ben Harper and several previously unseen portrait photos of Burroughs, taken by Harriet Crowder in her Hammersmith flat during a drug experiment. The back cover uses another Crowder image - the very next frame after the famous shot that appeared on the cover of the English Bookshop/ESP Call Me Burroughs LP (1965). Pressed at Optimal on transparent vinyl. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Paradign Discs.

Artist: DOWNES, BOB
Title: Episodes At 4 AM
Format: CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Bob Downes is most often thought of as a jazz flautist, composer and group leader, but throughout his varied career that has included such diverse musical activity as working with the John Barry Seven and playing on Eggs second LP, he also had his own fluid conceptual group Open Music with principle bass player Barry Guy and drummer Denis Smith. Other players that passed through Open Music include Chris Spedding, Kenny Wheeler, Ray Russell, Ian Carr, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, Harry Miller, Barre Phillips, John Stevens and many others. Besides the free jazz and jazz rock influences, Bob Downes has also been involved in much experimental music. After his early 70s releases on Philips, Vertigo and Music For Pleasure there appeared a series of 3 private pressed LPs on his own label Openian that explored this more experimental style. Episodes at 4AM is the second in this series and is by far the strangest of the three. Released in 1974 and commissioned by the Welsh Dance Theatre, it consisted of 10 short duos performed by Wendy Benka on zither, dulcimer and small percussion, and Downes on flutes, various percussion and plenty of electronic manipulation. Nearly every sound on this LP was processed using a variety of shimmering delays, controlled feedback, reverb and speed change to create a haunting and delirious mix of musical styles and atmospheres. Taken from the master tapes, this 33-minute LP has been expanded for the CD release with 35 minutes of previously unreleased experimental works, mostly from the same period, that cover even more ground than the LP, including one piece made entirely from the sounds of various phone booths on the streets of New York." -Paradigm Discs.

Artist: EASTLEY, MAX
Title: Installation Recordings (1973 - 2008)
Format: Double CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"This 2CD is essentially a retrospective of Eastleys installation work. As such, it updates and adds many new examples to the 1975 release New and Rediscovered Musical Instruments, which was released as a split LP with David Toop on Brian Enos Obscure Records. This is Eastleys first solo CD. Of the 35 tracks, only the last two have any guests (the most virtuosic moment being George Lewis playing a grass blade). All the other pieces are either powered by the natural forces of wind and water, or else are motor driven gallery installations. The ethereal sounds of the aoelian harps, the haunting aeolian flutes, and the violent tension of his aerophone installations are hallmark Eastley sounds. These sounds, and many others, sit amidst a wide range of acoustic settings, from windy hill tops to quiet brooks, residential street scenes to coastal shores. The indoor recordings are no less varied, ranging across a rich variety of acoustics and gallery spaces from tiny micro sounds to large scale amplification. Wood, metal and stone are brought to life with electricity. Although there are many photos in the 20-page booklet, much is left to the imagination to work out how the sounds are made. With this limited access to the visual, the focus is pulled towards the musicality of the sounds themselves. This musicality is reinforced by the slow cross fades of most of the pieces from indoors to outdoors to form a series of suites. The recordings mostly date from the mid 70s, but there are pieces from later decades. Nearly everything was recorded either to Revox or Uher and occasionally cassette, using what microphones were available at the time. Recent recordings are digital. The varying quality of the recording set-ups across this 2CD adds yet another dimension to the shifting sound fabric of this anthology." - Paradigm.

Format: CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
The Paradigm label is back! First new releases in a few years, starting w/ this much in demand reissue of their first album from 1973. "Although the Gravity Adjusters Expansion Band (GAEB) started in 1967, they remain one of the long lost and underestimated groups that explored the areas of sound sculpture, improvisation, experimental music and free jazz. The group have their roots in playing in and around the San Francisco Bay Area, and finally recorded their first LP in Los Angeles. Free jazz drummer Lee Charlton seamlessly shifts the moods from jazzy phrasing into the far more abstracted ideas of the world of sound sculpture. It is this abstract world where the GAEB mostly reside, using the invented instruments of multi-media artist Richard Waters, many of whose percussive and bowed instruments incorporate water filled resonators to bend and tune the sound. Although many other improvisors at the time like AMM, MEV, Sonde and Taj Mahal Travellers all made extensive use of home made and adapted instruments, the GAEB are a very different concern with their own unmistakable identity. Their first LP One appeared in 1973 on Nocturne Records, a small Californian label. It was the first of their 2 LPs, the second appearing some 8 years later. This CD edition is a reissue of the first LP from the master tapes and also contains some 15 minutes of extra material from the time." - Paradigm Discs.

Title: Lingual Music

Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Britains best known sound poet is Bob Cobbing, but its hard to come up with a list of other sound poets working in Britain in the 60s and 70s. Its equally difficult to think of any female sound poets working anywhere. LILY GREENHAM was Danish, but spent her childhood in Vienna. After several relocations across Europe she settled in London in 1972 with her British husband (musician and poet Peter Greenham), where she lived until her death in 2001. Nearly all of her own writings and compositions date from after her arrival in London, but prior to her arrival in London she had been involved in two major European art movements. The Wienner Group in the late 1950s and the "Groupe de Recherche dArt Visuel in 1964. In London she began to record her own text based compositions that used a mixture of sound poetry techniques, electronics and multi-tracking. The term lingual music that she coined for her compositions refers to her technique of using tape loops of text to create complex and dense musical structures. This 2CD set compiles a wide variety of her own work, including live solo performances, film soundtrack pieces, as well as many tape pieces. The recordings date from between 1968 and 1984." - Paradigm

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The guest musicians on this CD set are many and varied, but its all put together by GUS COMA, LEPKE Bs dwarfish cousin, who renounced show-biz to work as a Heavy Goods Vehicle driver. The kind of strange and experimental that makes a mutant proud to be defective. Expect gigantic tape loop symphonies, sundry plunderphonics, lo-fi Sparks and the voice of JFK, a WILLIAM BURROUGHS interview (on one track), and a worn out teach-yourself-English tape. Youre probably saying to yourself, "You had me at dwarfish," but read on: The first disc reissues an obscure C60 (Its War Boys 1983), half of which is formed around several mixes of an experimental track, constructed from a room-sized 24-track loop (a different version appeared on THE JUST MEASURES Flagellation LP (Its War Boys 1983), the other half of which is a tape collage of mostly unused (and some remixed) excerpts from what became the title track of the MILK FROM CHELTENHAMs Triptych of Poisoners LP (Its War Boys 1983 and Alga Marghen 2005); its a live mixdown of seventeen cassette recordings of locked record grooves, stray radio and an infernal matchbox. The second disc is an alternative version of the tape on disc one; it follows a similar blueprint but also contains some very different music, primitive disco drum programming, and a somewhat more sophisticated sound quality. Two bonus tracks are included, originally intended as working material for the unfinished second Milk From Cheltenham LP." -Paradigm

Title: Electronic Works 1965-1966
Format: CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"1997 release of three early electronic works from 1965-1966 by Pauline Oliveros. This material is exclusive to this release and is not included on the recent Important Records 12CD Reverberations: Tape & Electronic Music 1961-1970. "I of IV" was made in July 1966, first released by CBS alongside works by Steve Reich and Richard Maxfield. "Big Mother Is Watching You" was also made in the summer of 1966 at the University of Toronto Electronic Music Studio, and track 3 was made at the San Francisco Tape Music Center in 1965. The three pieces on this CD are all live experiments, which at the simplest level use either an array of oscillators or filters, a mixer and one spool of tape feeding a series of (variously set up) stereo tape machines. Long delay lines, pile-ups of noise and rich sonorities are the stuff of this music. The third piece also samples a chunk of Puccinis Madame Butterfly, which only makes this music seem even more contemporary." - Paradigm Discs.

Title: Oramics
Format: Double CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Daphne Oram is best known for her design of her Oramics system, and also for co-founding the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1957, but until now the only easily available piece of music by her on CD has been the 8-minute long "Four Aspects." There was also a 7-inch EP from 1962 on HMV, released as part of the Listen, Move and Dance series that was specifically designed to help children dance. Although the short pieces on this record are very basic it could be argued that this is the first ever electronic dance record! Now for the first time is a survey of nearly all the major pieces that she produced since her departure from the BBC in January 1959 until her final tape piece in 1977. The two and a half hours of music on this 2CD set covers the whole range of Orams post BBC output. All of the music is electronic with some occasional use of real instruments, especially small percussion and piano frame. There is also some use of musique concrete techniques. The works fall roughly into the following categories: works for TV and cinema advertising, film soundtracks, music for theatre productions, installations and exhibitions as well as concert pieces and several studio experiments. There are also a few short pieces that resulted from an experimental music course given by Oram at a high school in Yorkshire in 1967." - Paradigm.

Price: $16.50
"When the Los Angeles Free Music Society 10 CD set came out I eagerly flipped through the contents to see what treasures had finally been made available again. Much to my surprise the early compilation I.D. Art #2 was not included in this otherwise major overview of the LAFMS. I.D. Art #2 was the second LP release on their label, coming after Le Forte Fours Bikini Tennis Shoes LP, and before the 2LP Live at the Brand, a split album between Le 44 and The Doo-Dooettes. It dates from 1976. It is also probably the most difficult LP on their catalogue to find. Originally released in an edition of just 200 copies, most of which were given out to the 44 artists and groups who appeared on this extraordinary LP. The deal was that each track was paid for by the contributor at a rate of $8 per minute in exchange for 4 copies of the disc. Consequently very few copies were ever made available via the LAFMS mail order service. With a running time of 66 minutes and the sheer variety of contributions, I.D. Art #2 remained for most people a mysterious and tantalising item. Among the known names from the LAFMS scene are: Le Forte Four, Joe Potts, Fredrick Nilsen, Mr Foon, Ace & Duce, Dennis Mehaffey as well as 6 tracks by Smegma." -Paradigm Discs.

"an amazing aural journey recorded in 1972, and highly recommended (really his best work)." - Anomalous. from the liner notes: "A musical / allegorical journey, created on tape. A man wakes from a dream and sets off on a car journey. On his car radio, he tunes into the sounds of a space-rocket launch. The two journeys coalesce in his mind. Traveling on through many strange musical landscapes he arrives at a hall of doors. On passing through, the threads of his journey are drawn together. Made in the York University Studio, Journey into Space uses many improvised and composed musics for scaffolding pipes, steel combs, toy instruments, doors & the sounds of many other objects & situations, as well as conventional instruments, voices and electronics."

Title: Journey Into Space
Format: CD
Label: Paradigm Discs
Country: UK
Price: $16.50
"York Universitys music department houses one of the UKs first ever electronic music studios, and during the early seventies it was a hotbed of creative activity. Much of the released output from the studio at this time revolved around the work of the dynamic composer Trevor Wishart. Journey Into Space was his first release, composed between 1970 and 72, and was privately pressed (shortly before the formation of YES records), as two separate LPs in 1973. (The CD cover amalgamates the 2 original designs). Along with other early private releases of experimental music in the UK (ie the LP of sound poems by Cobbing/Jandl, or the LP of musique concrète by Desmond Leslie), this record is also a total anomaly in the canon of British experimental music and has little to do with the current, or even subsequent work by Wishart. The vast length of this piece has many different styles. There are acoustic sections, mostly of junk and toys (bike bells, squeeze horns, bottles, metal tubes, combs etc.) as well as flute and brass sections that are used as raw material. There are also sections of everyday field recordings, scraps of NASA Apollo transmissions, as well as plenty of multitracking, editing, vocal acrobatics and musique concrète. Among the 48 participants credited on the original sleeve are a whole roster of York University alumni including nearly all the artists who were showcased on the soon to be released 3LP box set Electronic Music From York, along with other noteworthy students as diverse as Steve Beresford, Jonty Harrison, Roger Marsh, Dominic Muldowney, Bernard Rands and Jan Steele. The co-operative spirit of Yorks music and drama departments, plus the raw enthusiasm and open attitude of the participants involved in the project gave this music an immediacy, similar to the later LAFMS scene." - Paradigm

"The lyrics are obscure, but what I pick up spells L-S-D. About halfway through the track the trio takes off for the Andromeda Galaxy, a 10-minute space guitar jam with echoes of Manuel Gottsching and Terry Brooks, before Rameshwar the vocalist reappears to send a final transmission back to the Solar system. Whew! No coincidence they called their recording shack The Sponge - there must have been liquid acid running down the walls in there. Over on the reverse side is The oracle speaks, another 24-minute trip which Im pretty certain was recorded in a lysergic state - theres no other way to explain the strange wave-like in/out-of synch drumming. Beginning with ghostly whispers of Sanskrit the piercing Voice appears again to intone the LP title, before setting off on a bizarre imitation of rootsy garage rock interspersed with crude acid guitar leads.... A conceptual tribal basement acid space guitar trip that is as good as anything Ive heard from a modern - as I believe them to be - psych band... heads who enjoy Ya Ho Wha 13 LPs can find comfort in the fact that there were freaks as flipped out as Yods guys 15 years later, right in the middle of the Reagan-Bush American heartland." -- Acid Archives. Related to the Skuldedog CD we carried a few years back, this is a 1989 release of 1985 re-recordings of material originally written in 1976.. or something like that. Very Highly Recommended!

Its regulated, rationed, and billed by volume, like water or electricity or ice cream. Sometimes you have to beg the boss for more, or even for a trifling taste. So lets make time! Lets roll the dice and get these old bones out on the road again. Steve Gunns new album imagines the fugitive moments afforded us during time off, out, and away as occasions for dilatory investigations into our immediate environments and interiors. Time Off showcases the virtuosic guitarist and songwriters oblique character sketches and story-songs, some of which, like Lurker and Street Keeper, portray specific denizens of his Brooklyn neighborhood. Old Strange celebrates Jack Rose, a dear and departed friend and muse. Those contemplative studies frame Gunns most affecting, accessible and articulate work of pure song-craft to date. His definitive statement as a songwriter, Time Offrepresents the culmination of nearly fifteen years of stylistic experimentation as a solo artist, a member of GHQ and the Gunn-Truscinski Duo, and more recently, as a guitarist in fellow Philadelphia-bred troubadour Kurt Viles touring band the Violators. Gunns first eponymous album with a full band, Time Off harnesses a core trio format to launch his compositions into new, luminous strata; the songs have evolved through disciplined trio interplay with longtime collaborator John Truscinski on drums and Justin Tripp (formerly of Aspera and Favourite Sons) on bass and guitar.

"Comes in a tip-on jacket with full color inner sleeve and digital download coupon. Haw, herein, is an album of eleven songs about family, faith, and an ill-prophesied future, an artifact almost as archaic, lovely and seldom heard today as directional commands for beasts of burden. M.C. Taylor, who wrote these songs, once lived hard by the Haw with his wife Abigail and their son Elijah ? Well I come from the bottom of the river Haw, he sings -- but he doesnt live there anymore. Having followed the slipstream to the relative bustle of nearby Durham, North Carolina, he has composed a new clutch of tunes that conjure the half-remembered dreams of peace promised by our pasts. Taylors writing and singing here achieve a tenebrous clarity, invoking -- and occasionally challenging -- a intermingling cast of prophetic characters both sacred and profane: Daniel, Elijah, the Apostles, and the Son of Man, sure, but also the Peacock Fiddle Band, Mississippi John Hurt, and by implication, Lew Welch, Waylon Jennings, Michael Hurley, and our friend Jefferson Currie II. Say whatever prayer you want: to Jehovah or Yahowah, or Red Rose Nantahala. More than ever before, the supporting players of Hiss Golden Messenger feature as tellers of the tale.

"..mysterious underground US freak who creates a bizarre mixture of electric and acoustic psych weirdness. Incredibly diverse styles are used by Nicodemus as he creates garage psych symphonies that overlay insightful and damaged lyrics." -Freak Emporium.

"Nicodemus has produced a body of work over his more than 30-year career that is stunning in its breadth and shocking in its level of accomplishment, yet is so underexposed that many have never heard of a man whose best music is easily on a par or better than the work of auteurs ranging from Lou Reed to Neil Young to John Lennon to Brian Wilson to Bruce Springsteen. Perhaps its too much to ask that the terminally clueless Rolling Stone Record Guide have caught on, but St. Nic has been consistently overlooked even by self-proclaimed underground guides like The Trouser Press Record Guide or Unknown Legends Of Rock. Excepting a brief blurb in Jello Biafras section of the RE/Search book Incredibly Strange Music, Vol. 2 and an error-riddled article in Motorbooty magazine, precious few signposts point the music consumer towards Nicodemus work. Given that the world of music journalism is prone to hyperbole, many may choose to doubt my words, but the proof is in the music: a couple of listens to amazing songs like "Sometimes I Cant Sleep", "They Whisper Here", "One Way", or "When The Daylight Fades To Nothing" should convince even the most skeptical that Nicodemus music deserves to be considered among the most creative musical art of the last thirty years. Equally as astonishing as his work is the story of the man himself; his entry into the music business almost came in his pre-teen years when Motown chief Berry Gordy almost signed his group, the Jim Harlem Trio. "We were around 11 or 12 years old, but we were doing blues and stuff like that. Fortune Records hooked us up with a guy named Bob Moss, who was some kind of big recording deal back then. He recorded us and got the tape to Berry, and he was interested in putting our work out seeing that we were young. He was branching out, and we would have been the first white people signed to that label, but my stepfather, that particular stepfather at that time, who opted to be our manager, also opted to run off with the tapes when he caught my mother and her third husband together. So he punished us all by doing that." Later Nicodemus became part of the outlaw motorcycle club Satans Last Revenge, eventually becoming its president. While an important part of his life, Nicodemus doesnt want it overemphasized in overzealous attempts to create a cartoon image of his life. "Im very against becoming a caricature of myself. Thats where I say that you have to not take yourself too seriously in life. Especially with some of the things that are said about me, cause I read some of these writings and its like Biker Of The Apocalypse? Come on…whoever wrote that was someplace else."
As Nicodemus began to create his first records, he quickly realized that despite his childhood chance at getting into Hitsville, his adult work was less likely to find acceptance with the industry. He thus created Zedikiah Records and self-released his albums under this imprint, years before the punk underground would claim to have originated the DIY ethos. "When I was [getting started] there was nobody to get any input from, nobody to get any ideas from. I just knew that Id had enough of being auditioned by record companies and being told that I cant do it this way. And I knew that I had to do it the way that I felt it, and that was whether or not I wanted to go la la-la, la-la-la-la la la on Spacechild Squall and end it off-key and not have somebody coming in, Oh, no, you gotta do that over, and me try to explain to them why its off key, man, cause the song, if you, you know…Its called human emotion--its not a mistake, buddy, its supposed to be there!"- Aaron Poehler.

Price: $10.00
"Nicodemus, Detroits web-spinning madman of wisdom and space, is a subcultural Renaissance Man. He and his brother Matchez have recorded, singularly and collectively, over 50 albums for Zedikiah Records, the record label Nicodemus started in 1970. He has published 14 books of poetry, prose and fiction. He has sired three sons by as many wives and presided over the infamous Satans Last Revenge Motor Club. He studied for 11 years the healing ways of the Mescalero Apache and is known as Whitecrow in Native American circles, proudly displaying the symbol of a healer over his left eye. He is a surrealist painter of some renown who signs his work Chongo. Nicodemus and Matchezs recordings have long been held sacred by a worldwide cult of fanatics of esoteric music. Their sounds are eclectic, ranging from future folk to heavy rock and even acid house... Jello Biafra said about Nicodemus in Incredibly Strange Music: My runaway favorite space-folk artist... an instantly recognizable voice thatll send chills down your spine." - Parallel World.

Title: Cambodian Rocks
Format: CD
Label: Parallel World
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
Sealed copies of this 2000 release. "In 1996, the Parallel World label released the LP "Cambodian Rocks", a collection of Cambodian psych and garage music from the 60s and early 70s (probably), compiled by an American tourist named Paul Wheeler from some cassettes he bought in Phnom Penh. No information on the songs was provided at all, no artist names, no song titles, and no recording dates. Four years later, Parallel World reissued this compilation on CD with a few extra tracks, but still without any identifying information. Unfortunately, it is more than likely that many of the featured musicians, showing a definite Western influence in their music, were murdered by the Khmer Rouge regime which took over power in 1975. Certainly none of them ever received any money from the sales of this compilation. However, the music is wonderful, and here it is for your enjoyment." - WFMU..

Title: Luk Thung: Classic & Obscure 78s From The Thai Countryside
Format: LP
Label: Parlortone
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Fourteen outstanding funky performances of Thai country groove music from the 1950s and early 1960s. All previously un-reissued, carefully transferred and mastered from the original 78rpm records and presented with detailed full-color liner notes. Luk Thung is the down home, funky "Country Music" of Thailand that blossomed as rural Thais migrated to Bangkok for work in the 1950s and 1960s. Luk Thung evolved out of a complex stew of traditional folk styles and international influences. Wild accordions and Latin horn sections mingle with Thai hand drums and finger cymbals, while exquisite vocalists swagger and sing stories about lifes struggles. For fans of the Sublime Frequencies Molam and Thai Pop Spectacular series, as well as the Thai Beat A Go-Go LPs on Subliminal sounds, Luk Thung: Classic & Obscure 78s From The Thai Countryside is the missing piece of the puzzle: the origins, the home-spun, country roots behind the electric movements to come. All of the selections here are reissued for the first time for English audiences, with six pages of full-color illustrated notes and the typical attention to detail and ability to make the past present that audiences expect from Dust-to-Digital and Parlortone CDs and LPs. Compiled by David Murray, with notes by Peter Doolan. Murray is a 78rpm collector and the curator of Haji Maji, a blog dedicated to Asian music from the 78 rpm era. He also plays Greek Rebetika music, is a fiddler for the old-time Squirrelly Stringband, and is a graphic designer. Peter Doolan spent the last year in Bangkok researching the music of Thailand. He shares his passion for Thai music through his blog Monrakplengthai: Enchanting Sounds of Thailand. Pressed on high quality vinyl with a full-color cover featuring Thai 78rpm record sleeve graphics, and a full-color 6-page illustrated fold-out insert with extensive liner notes and photos." -Parlortone

Title: Qat, Coffee, & Qambus: Raw 45s From Yemen
Format: LP
Label: Parlortone
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Qat, Coffee & Qambus: Raw 45s From Yemen is a compilation of rare Yemeni vinyl singles, showcasing the little-documented, evolving local music styles in the 1960s and 1970s. Vintage oud and vocal music inspired by the qat-chewing, coffee-sipping, qambus-playing culture of Yemen. Although part of the classical Arabic musical tradition, the music of Yemen takes its rhythmic lead as much from the East African coast (a mere 20 miles across the Red Sea) as the surrounding Arab Peninsula. Little has been written about the music and culture of one of the worlds oldest civilizations, and each 45rpm disc gives a small glimpse of the poetic tradition, the unique local oud styles as well as an insight into peoples day to day lives, or the highs and lows of human relationships. Overall, the compilation gives a flavor of the sights and sounds of Yemen, with detailed notes that tell the story of the hunt for music that has mostly lain forgotten in the antique markets of the capital, until now. Pressed on high quality vinyl with a full-color cover featuring 78rpm record sleeve graphics, and an insert of extensive liner notes and photos." -Parlortone

"He was the best. There is no one who comes close to him. I mean in his humanity, and the depth of his performance, there is no one like him." --Werner Herzog on Bruno S. These exclusive recordings of Bruno S music were made in Berlin in 2009 shortly before his untimely death at the age of 78. They capture perfectly his distinctive voice, accompanied by accordion and glockenspiel, in the places where he performed for many years -- the streets of Berlin, a local tavern, and his own apartment. Bruno S was a street musician and painter who first came to public attention through the two films he starred in for director Werner Herzog, The Enigma of Kasper Hauser (1974) and Stroszek (1977), a film that in some part was based on Brunos own life. He was born in 1932, likely in Berlin, to a prostitute who placed him in a mental hospital as a child, where he was subjected to Nazi experiments. Bruno would go on to spend 23 years in institutions, including jails and homeless shelters. As an adult he began to perform on the street as well as working as a forklift driver, before ultimately catching Herzogs eye. The common themes of Brunos street ballads, folk songs and operettas are crime, abandonment, passion, and, perhaps most significantly, the role of the mother. In dealing with his troubled life, Bruno pulled himself out of isolation through his art, at first through music, and later also through his paintings and drawings. This beautiful record is pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl and features a large format full-color booklet containing lyrics, liner-notes and reproductions of several of Brunos paintings and drawings." -Parte.

Title: Traumdeutung
Format: LP
Label: Parte
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Pressed in a limited edition of 300 copies on 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Includes a 12x12 insert with liner notes. The Traumdeutung project began in 1999 with a one-hour recording of my snoring into a DAT player placed next to my bed in my NYC loft. My snores, re-contextualized here in musical arrangements produced by Arto Lindsay and Alexandre Kassin, range from the mild and blissful to the vulgar and catastrophic. My original intention was to turn something awful into something listenable or, at least, amusing. However, in the mixing stage, unexpected results were revealed and oblique references came into play. The human snore, if slowed down as we did several times in the studio searching for editing points, is almost identical to the sounds of plaintive underwater whales. In listening to these mixes one follows the moods, if not the actual narratives, of the dreamer -- sudden changes in snoring clearly result from changes within inner narratives. These are abstract matters, as we can only witness such inner events through a series of filters. Traumdeutung, the album, is linked to the modern bossa music of Brazil. The meditative or relaxation-inducing aspect of that music is hyper-conceptualized and exaggerated here. Bossa nova drummer Paulo Braga was first asked to accompany the bare snoring track. Later musicians and friends added parts -- guitar, bass, keyboards, samples, etc. Four tracks with spoken conversations are on the album, two in German, one in Portuguese and one in Japanese. The most satisfying result of this project was to create an opportunity for a listener to read or interpret the stream of thought of the snorer -- what brut moods, feelings and narratives exist within it. In these awkward and displaced sounds we can witness abstract processes of telepathy and psychic communication." -Diego Cortez.

Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"The first full-length offering from BILLY BAO. Born and raised on the unstable streets of Lagos, Nigeria before relocating to the alleyways of a then-recently freed Bilboa, Spain, Billy Bao is a rough, dangerous, borderline example of societys woes turned against itself, of cultural repression made flesh, as it foments into a madness both gleeful and destructive. Befriended by world-renowned noise guitarist MATTIN, the two men formed a personal alliance through the community of punk rock and the blunt-force politics therein. Every musical action Bao makes is a statement of political and personal intent, of the persecution that boils within him, and yet, across his previous releases any notions of political punk rock of the tired, insipid Anglicized version are brutally choked out. Mattins musical backdrops swing with the force of Baos vocal delivery to rattling, devastating effect." - Parts Unknown.

"The Nigerian monstrosity that is Billy Bao returns in agony. Bleeding. Pointing a colossal black finger at global capitalism, regular music, non-music and anti-music, at the food crisis of 2008, the moribund spirit of 1968, and especially at you, the record buyer, who maybe "really dug" his first LP, Dialectics of Shit, and will come back for more, or perhaps "heard a lot about him" and his bandmate Mattin in the "blogosphere" or even in print media (ooh!) (whatever that is), and are "curious to finally hear his music" because you find the stories "interesting" and this is even heavier and more fucked up than The Brainbombs at their heaviest and most fuckeduppednest, and you "get it," right? Yeah! Or wait, let me guess, you got the record for free along with this press release because youre an influential but too-modest-to-admit-it journalist or music critic or program director and so far youve had something to say about Billy, or not, and this is a wonderful opportunity for you to comment upon the work of someone whose primary subject is his own work, so that you can enter into a "dialogue" with "him," or maybe "introduce new audiences" -- maybe even some "kids"! Hooray for the kids! -- to some "awesome" new sounds that "engage the listener in a perceptual tug of war, a struggle to make sense of the unnatural experience of playing audience member to someone elses performer" -- or even better, outsmart Billy, outsmart this record, and call it out as bullshit or play along and pretend that youre in on some "joke" that, lets be honest, you sometimes suspect you dont really get yourself. It dont matter! Were all human beings here, except for those of us who arent, and none of us is more human than Billy. What matters is the way Alberto Lopez pounds the drums, the way Xabier Erkizia rips up the guitar, Mattin and Xabis computer dicking, and Billy right in the middle of it, channeling a desperation so total its embarrassing. This LP is so angry the songs dont even have titles. Some of em are really long, some are really short, but theyre all pretty goddamn infuriating, as they oughta be. The Dialectics of Shit LP and the Accumulation 7" didnt go out of print as quickly as any of us would have hoped, but at least the 10" on SS and the seminal and almost-legendary Bilbos Incinerator EP that started everyone puckering their cornholes are now almost impossible to get. May 08 is actually surprising, which is pretty goddamn surprising, because where do you go after those first four platters, honestly? Well, fuck, you make a record thats somehow noisier than all of those, more tweaked and fucked-with and digitally distorted than anything before it, crammed with grotesque and sublime samples from the noise of yesteryear: Nono, Kuti, Whitehouse, Brainbombs, and Billy, Billy Bao. What? What do you want? Look at the kindsa shit people said about Bilbos Incinerator: "Nigerias answer to Stickmen With Rayguns-era Bobby Soxx -- abhorrent pummeling scuzzrock that is [...]extremely harrowing." -Art for Spastics "He might not wallow in the same cesspool as Bobby Soxx, but Billy Bao has the shine." -Siltblog "Billy Bao is identical to Bobby Soxx of Stickmen With Rayguns in every conceivable way." - Acapulco Dance Party "Punishingly prescient. Vocals sound like the second coming of Kickboy Face, and this as a whole comes off as a terrifyingly real example of what human beings are capable of if pushed far enough. The real world equivalent to the Pissed Jeans 7�?�. An important record." - Dusted Magazine Wow!!! Punishingly prescient!!! Important!!! And whattabout Dialectics of Shit? That one came out on Parts Unkown too! "One heckuva magnificent achievement. " -The Wire "Difficult and entertaining, there is nothing here that would ever be mistaken for easy listening. Punk + experimental + challenging what you think an album should sound like." - Scott Sorianos Webtoons "When Billy Bao isnt making me blow nonexistent fluff off my needle, theyre swamping my stereo with a sickly twenty-generations-removed blues vomit. Its violently dissociative in the most life-affirming way." - Z-Gun It should be pretty goddamn clear to you why you want and need to purchase this record. If you dont care about "enjoying" May 08 the way the artists "intended," go download the music for free and completely miss out on the experience of listening to this record on your turntable in "glorious" analogue sound while fixing your gaze on the epic violence of Billys 12 x 12 cover artwork.

"I dont want to say Dry Rot are controversial, because to me theyre not. But their personal religious beliefs somehow get a lot of peoples panties in a bunch for whatever ridiculous reasons. Who cares if they thank God on their insert when theyve released what is probably the best hardcore full length of the year. For Christians they certainly are some weird fucking dudes, and thats all that matters to me. Philistine racks up some serious points for unrelenting and furious hardcore rippers, but its the stuff that happens in between that makes them a special band. Strange instrumental passages that sound as if they couldve come from some Nineties alternative band, a surprising array of odd guitar and bass sounds, the mellow jam of "Can A Game Kill Time?" and its tape-tricked vocals, some weird-punk breakdowns, some post-hardcore Touch&Go-ish moves, there are unconventional touches all over this LP. Its not often you get a hardcore record with this much character, and it makes you enjoy the crushing Die Kreuzen-like bring-the-hate moshers even more. A band has to be pretty good at the basics to pull off the weird stuff. And Dry Rot are just that, not some generic punk band trying to play the weird card (or using their religion to stir controversy/sales, but even if they are, who can blame em?), they are a genuinely blistering outfit at the base level which allows them to fit all the unusual moments into their work seamlessly. Nothing seems forced or contrived, no shoehorned in eccentricity just for the sake of it. The most interesting and individualistic band in hardcore punk today, theyve gotten better with each release and this LP is certainly and rightfully the high point of their path so far. I cant recommend this record enough, even to all you garage rockers out there who think you outgrew hardcore years ago. Dry Rot and their debut LP rise above genre confines and should appeal to all and any who appreciate idiosyncratic rock music in general. Scum stats: test/tour press version of 100 copies has been floating about for a bit with alternate silk-screened sleeves. Regular release should be widely available. And as a footnote, the drummer of Saccharine Trust plays on this LP." - Richard K., Terminal Boredom.

Title: Ubi Bene
Format: Double LP
Label: Passus
Country: Germany
Price: $28.00
"To anybody with the slightest interest in electronic music and krautrock Hans-Joachim Roedelius needs no introduction. As founding member of Kluster (with Conrad Schnitzler and Dieter Moebius; continued as Cluster after Schnitzlers departure) and Harmonia (with Moebius and Michael Rother), he is one of the most highly-regarded pioneers and key figures in both genres. Roedelius remains very productive as of 2015, now in his 80s, and not only performs regularly but also continues to release an impressive amount of work. Ubi Bene sees him join forces with Leon Muraglia, electronic artist and guitar player of a younger generation, who, in addition to his solo recordings, also works as DJ and studio musician. The albums 12 tracks add up to an elegant musical trip that meanders between moody, ambient piano work; experimental passages; and contemporary electronica -- a fascinating chapter in Roedeliuss impressive oeuvre. 180-gram double LP in gatefold sleeve with download code. Edition of 750." - Passus.

Title: Acid Dreams
Format: CD
Label: Past & Present
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Recognized as one of the truly great comps of all time, this 1979 selection of 60s U.S. hard guitar-psych, compiled by the owner of a record shop in Berlin, has often been reissued on CD with the wrong tracklisting and non-existent liner notes. Originally released on LP, only 77 copies were pressed and apart from a few that were given to friends and family, the remaining records were only sold through the compilers shop or shamelessly bootlegged. Unavailable on either LP or CD for years, the Past & Present label are pleased to make this important compilation available again. This reissue, which stays faithful to the original, comes with an 8-page booklet detailing each of the 18 tracks. Acid Dreams proved that punk rock was not a new thing; kids had adopted the same snotty attitude in the mid-to-late 60s. The opening track, White Lights "William," sets the standard for whats to come: a compulsive, classic, hard guitar-psych 45 rocker and 17 more psych diamonds follow in its wake. A true gem mined and polished by Past & Present. Artists include: White Light, Caretakers Of Deception, Outcasts, The Music Machine, Mystic Tide, Stereo Shoestrings, Velvet Illusions, Unrelated Segments, Beautiful Daze, Painted Faces, Teddy & His Patches, Vejtables, Faine Jade, Balloon Farm, Minds Eye, Zakary Thaks, Remaining Few." -Past & Present

"Silk Flowers are a synth-driven music trio based in New York. Their songs balance parts of pop and noise with melodies that evoke emotion from the listener. Countering typical notions of electronic music as a purely recorded listening experience, Silk Flowers write their songs for live performance, creating a visceral dynamic event that fluctuates between gleeful dance music and rough-edged dissonance." -PPM

Title: Otherside Of
Format: 7" + 2CD

Price: $48.00
"Tokyo psych mainstays from 1990 to 2008 who, according to Dusted, "mixed the melodies with the mope to achieve a Paisley Underground sort of effect, albeit with virtuosic guitar freakouts by leader RINJI FUKUOKA... [M]ajestic melodies, challenging and progressive outlines, ripping leads, and proper song structures... recorded in Japan rattle the cages of... young, tribal drug-pee band[s]... with the skill and professional freakout-making abilities they all lack." The seven-inch contains two songs from the bands 1999 US tour: "Le Few Follet" with its pop-psych layering and dueling lead guitars that are thick and confident and "Cut Up Us," a collage of sounds from the entire tour and symphonic tapeloops." - Pataphysique.

Title: Speckled Ax
Format: LP
Label: Paul Dasken
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"(Speckled Ax) was finally shrinkwrapped and ready to go in 1988. I placed a few copies with indie distributors but the market took a pass. Im leery of manifestos--I think things should speak for themselves. Plus the thing was made so many years ago that Im a bit foggy about it all. Its fair to say that the record is a study of contrasts, and the result of diverging ideas about what music should be--this is to say that the ideas were more entwined in earlier projects, which sounded nothing whatsoever like anything on the record (starting with PUS, my first band (1978), whose instrumentation consisted of power tools). The piano pieces were an attempt to reconnect with humanity in the course of some years spent chasing wild geese across two continents (the record cover is a kind of document of this time). The earlier of the two piano pieces (Busy Day) had a more architechtural conception behind it while the other one was conceived more in terms of an accommodation to silence. For what thats worth. I dont know anything about writing music, I just feel my way along. The versions of Wichita Lineman (one of my favorite songs) can be put down to "frustration with the music business" in the broadest possible sense. Any further reference is left to the eye (ear?) of the beholder." - Paul Dasken. "Each side consists of two elements: a plaintive piano recording and a reinterpretation of Jimmy Webbs Wichita Lineman as protest music. Dasken is a conceptualist first and a musician second; each performance is site-specific and unabashedly amateur. His piano pieces will resonate with anyone who ever sat down at a piano without a lick of training but the will to peck out a pattern of notes that almost resembles a composition, if only to the player. That is to say they are intimate, singular, �??real piano,�?� and beautiful. The first Lineman finds Dasken taking on a manic street preacher, singing the song to a beat tapped out on a coke bottle, an abstract form of heckling that weirdly puts bogus fundamentalism in its proper, ridiculous place. The second take finds him at a 1988 campaign rally for Bush the Elder, where the wild applause that follows each of the candidates proclamations and an efficient team of secret service agents renders Daskens protest little more than a barely-noticed exercise in futility. Speckled Ax has gained formidable resonance with the passage of time. Its a key piece of loner Americana on wax, as personal and unique as records come. In the wake of 9/11, the fears and upset of the Eighties seem almost quaint, but Daskens voice in the wilderness burns brighter than ever as a fire to warm oneself by in this very long winter in America." Douglas Mcgowan , October 2006. Original copies of this strange private release out of Michigan. Released in 1988, handpasted artwork over old LP jackets, limited to 300 copies. "Sounds like Alvaro, The Native Hipsters & Charlemagne Palestine w/one hand tied behind his back". - Roland Woodbe, Siltblog.

"Record dealer Paul Majors staple-bound catalogs were distributed under the various guises of Sound Effects, Feel the Music, and briefly Xtabay. While on one level these catalogs acted as consumer guides, they also contain some of the most exemplary music writing put to page, at once both surreal and precise. Cloaked within these terse, stream-of-consciousness descriptions of rare psych, private pressings, and other incredibly strange LPs, stand Paul Majors revolutionary ideas on the necessity of the human element in art and the purpose of music, as well as highly entertaining observations on the lifestyles of the 60s, 70s, and 80s." - Johan Kugelberg (from "Enjoy the Experience: Homemade Records 1958-1992").

Various catalogs, spanning the late 80s to 2000-ish, all recently pulled from storage, mostly in vg+/nm, "non-perused" condition. A few have slight yellowing, minor creasing, and a couple are even postmarked returns. First come, first served. No Xtabays available. Numbers are assigned more or less arbitrarily and do not indicate chronological order (this is not a complete run) - there are very few dates and no "issue numbers", just foggy memories, so were selling by front cover images with prices based on quantity available. And keep in mind, due to the nature of what these are, there will obviously be overlapping content.
These are key documents in the evolution of underground record collecting from arguably the most influential collector/tracker/dealer, bookending the rise and fall of the "infamous" "psych mafia", who set the rules (i.e. prices) prior to the ebay/youtube/blog playfield-leveling of the last 10+ years..

Title: Campfire Songs
Format: CD
Label: Paw Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Paw Tracks is proud to present the reissue of Animal Collectives 2003 album Campfire Songs. Since the CDs original issue on Catsup Plate recently went out of print it is our intention to simply keep the cd in print for as long as possible. An idea originally thought up by Dave Portner and Noah Lennox while in college, Campfire Songs is not a record of songs sung around a campfire but a record that hints at songs emerging from the fire itself: "We wanted to give the music the feeling and atmosphere of the outdoors and the warmth of a fire, so people could bring it indoors." A collection of five songs written over a period of four to five years, Campfire Songs is an escape from the clutter and electronic assault of the groups 2001 release Danse Manatee and the tour that preceded it. However, the tapestry quality of the songs and the lines that blur endings from beginnings and jams from compositions highlight a style that the boys had become comfortable with from touring and would continue to work on in the years that followed on records like Here Comes The Indian and Feels. While the songs were completed in the apartment that three of the members shared (Geologist does not play on this album) they chose to record the music on a screened-in porch in Maryland using portable mini disc players so as to allow the ambience of trees blowing in the wind, the birds chirping and the insects in the area to become an integral part of the sound flow. What remains intact are the melodies that have always been a part of the AC sound�??though here they have been stripped away of any electronic accompaniment and stretched and slowed to a calmer place than anywhere AC had been before and perhaps has gone since." - Paw Tracks.

Title: Load Blown
Format: CD
Label: Paw Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Load Blown is the fourth album by Brooklyns Black Dice. The beats drip and roll, tar-pit voices sing into an oil can, and the guitars crank like calliope. Some tunes crackle and burble like submerged television, others bump and click along like a Summer Jam concert series from another dimension. While a noticeable change in tone encompasses Load Blown (some tunes veer close to pop songs), this is a work of over-stimulation, a product of frenzied media culture, a sonic sifting of the gratuitous amount of "stuff" out there. The span of time (nearly 18 months of on-again/off-again work) encompassing the composition and recording of the album accounts for a sprawling variety of sounds and songs. Strange and abrasive, yet somehow more familiar, accessible, and celebratory than ever, this is Black Dice at their most palatable yet. Load Blown is a compilation of three 12" vinyl EPs that have been released with special edition posters plus exclusive unreleased tracks. The final EP release (released at the same time as the Load Blown cd) will be the remaining five tracks not previously released on vinyl." - Paw Tracks

Title: REPO

"REPO is the fifth album by Black Dice. The Brooklyn, NY-based trio has never worked harder at crafting a set of concise, sonically battering, or flat-out bizarre tunes than on this collection of fringe-surfing tone bombs. Yet a new roadhouse blues-band philosophy has simultaneously emerged, allowing the group to loosen up and toss off a record packed with blurry hooks and zoomed-in riffs as casually as a grizzled denizen of roadside dives might spew out aural alchemy in-between a few brews. Brothers Eric and Bjorn Copeland and Aaron Warren have spent the better part of 10 years in daily contact, touring the world over, and sculpting their saw-toothed sound balloons under circumstances most reasonable people would wretch at. The resultant hive mind occupied by the three is an inevitable consequence of so much shared experience, both musical and simply day-to-day. Their communal consciousness is as packed with garbage as much as it is concerned with making catchy tunes, and often the songs pouring out of it contain equal parts bombastic infectious rhythm and chaotic detritus. REPO is the sound of a disciplined group of cosmic jokers setting out to reclaim the landscape popular culture would have us believe we cannot afford. The record irreverently mulches the sounds and images of radio, TV and internet into a fertile compost pile squirming with new, raw life." -Paw Tracks

Title: Alien In A Garbage Dump
Format: 12"
Label: Paw Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Eric Copelands Alien In A Garbage Dump 12" represents part one of the forthcoming album from the increasingly prolific member of Black Dice. Taking off where his last record, Hermaphrodite, left off, these seven jams are steeped in modern media overload; dense, often fragmented blasts of ideas and sounds, representative of a half hour of prime-time television (or something like that). But rather than contributing to this problem (pissing in the ocean), Erics black humor teases and criticizes the American stimuli machine in which we all participate; a house of mirrors perspective where all is familiarly skewed, humorous but misleading, disorienting and searching. This is over-loaded, over-processed, over-dosed music thats rooted in the public sounds, but somehow a giant leap from any fashion dominating the public mind. A repeat listener for sure...Its a musical creation from an Earthling to our peers in the Universe." -Paw Tracks

"Eric Copeland is a prominent member of New Yorks Black Dice and Terrestrial Tones. For the past two years, he has amassed and twisted a variety of music and sounds, resulting in Hermaphrodite, his first proper solo album. Hopscotching a free range of structures, sources, and styles, this album is unlike any other, crossing the wires of foreign radio, space transmissions, artificial vocal ensembles, electronic street conversations and lost pop music. But these compositions dont highlight the sound dynamics as much as they let each song shake and unfold into a very open world, continually broadening. Like a good mix tape, Hermaphrodite flips the listener with each new song, engaging them to keep up, make the connections, and, ultimately, enjoy." - Paw Tracks.

Excepter deliver two long dance tracks in a synthetic protest style, mapping the flipside of the sublimated global war machine inherent in the industrial food exploitation in the twin hubs of New York music subculture. Side A is a group groove on the cannibalistic struggle between capital and labor (ambition and drudgery) reproduced nightly on the Williamsburg gluttony scene. Side B is a techno imagining of the imperial threat of the comic strip girl on the Lower East Side as told from the point of view of the microwave ovens of a Sikh taxi stand.

"Originally released in a miniscule edition of 100 copies. ..two side-long workouts of layered dystopian pulsations. Ego Trip hews rather closer to the air free MB aesthetic that was more latent on LSD. Side A starts a mite tenuously but eventually settles into a pleasingly disorienting suctioning wooze.

Reissue of the second NORD release from 1984, his first being the 1981 self titled LP on Pinakotecha, an early release for the label after the legendary 愛欲人民十時劇場 compilation LP and KEIJI HAINOs 1st LP. Highly recommended! ".. L.S.D. features rough hewn sheets of ominous yet trippy pulsating textural electronics with an obvious debt to the stark teutonic soundworlds of Kluster and (especially) Seesselberg. Any glimmers of transcendence are immediately offset by a deadzone ambience that reeks of Maurizio Bianchi. Hiroshi Oikawas solo explorations of the galactic void seem considerably more enticing to these set of ears than the more formalized quotidian post-industrial con- structs he was fabricating under the Nord moniker with Satoshi Katayama on their Pinakotheca label debut LP from three years earlier.

Title: NG Tapes
Format: LP
Label: PCP
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"Hiroshi Oikawas two mid-80s solo LPs under the Nord moniker are among the rarest and most sought-after Japanese experimental releases of the era. Issued with minimal information (the latter title in a plain black jacket with simply a strip of sandpaper affixed to the front), the albums are dense, otherworldly explorations of the outermost edges -- or innermost core -- of reality. As Mutant Sounds put it, If this is cosmic, than its the cosmos as viewed from the vantage point of a burned out cinder drifting into entropy. Equally mysterious is Oikawas disappearance at the end of the decade. Completely untraceable even to his peers in Japan, he has by all accounts vanished from society, perhaps holed up in some pastoral cottage whiling away the days painting and tending a small garden, or orbiting a distant nebula on an alternate plane of existence. In recent years, PCP Records issued limited-edition re-presses of the two albums, duplicating the original artwork and layout as closely as possible. Now, the label has turned its attention to an even more obscure item in the Nord discography. NG Tapes was released on cassette in a micro edition and available only to purchasers of the 1984 LSD LP (itself limited to 200 copies). With a runtime of over 50 minutes, it delivers a powerful dose of extended synthesizer works -- ominous, pulsing electronics of the highest order -- offset with shorter, more compact post-industrial noise pieces reminiscent of Oikawas 1981 LP with Satoshi Katayama. This one-time, numbered vinyl edition has been carefully remastered from the original cassette and sounds amazing. Every effort was made to adapt the artwork to the 12" format, down to the obi strip that accompanied the package." - PCP.

Artist: ASO, AI
Title: Lavender Edition
Format: CD
Label: Pedal
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"The resonance of the name Aso Ai will not immediately cause tidal waves of excitement to leap up and hit foreign shores with a vehement power of overall upheaval and long awaited anticipation. No instinctive prevision whatsoever could gear up music aficionados for what was to come, since Asos debut recordings on the tiny and illustrious Oz Disc label had slipped by unnoticed through the mazes of the net. Aso Ai first appeared on the so-called music circuit around the year 2000 with the release of her debut single Amaihibiki, closely followed the following year by her full length CD Umerumono. Both releases slowly fell into slumber, disappearing into the gasping wounds of total obscurity until the freshly ignited Pedal Records label, led by former White Heaven guitarist Nakamura Souichirou, decided not to let Aso Ais exceptional talent go to waste and set out to conflagrate her sonic isolationism. Upon listening and witnessing Asos music, I could not but be struck by the bare stark nakedness and an almost less is more aesthetic that resonated out of every slow motion-like action she sings into being through her desolate tunes. Desolate as in stripped down of all artificial distractions, intellectual constructivism and violent sonic pollution, Asos musical universe is one of limited notation and well balanced fragile bossa-novelistic psychedelics. She quietly sets out, throughout the entire album, to show a graceful, yet sharp moving floating stride. From the first, almost minimalist approach, the atmospheric angelical quality and utterly erotic naïveté that breaths through her delicate vocals, one can feel a premonition towards an unprecedented relationship she beholds for a lyrical and soft poetic shape that feels like an introverted and at times almost religious affair her music embraces. Like the fragrance of a freshly picked cherry blossom, Aso Ais sonic universe is as fleeting and as fragile but in the mean time strong enough to face the seasonal climate changes the buds gets confronted with. Her whispering trade mark vocalizations are throughout the album backed up with some sparse but accurate and straight-to-the-point instrumentation provided by some of Tokyos finest scenesters around such as ex-White Heaven and Stars front man Ishihara You (who was also responsible for producing this sonic gem), Nakamura Souichirou (engineer of Nagisa Nite, Yura Yura Teikoku, Guitar Wolf, The Stars, etc), and Yura Yura Teikoku and Stars bass player Kamekawa Chiyo. When performing live, Aso gets backed by Ishihara, Nakamura and Kurihara Michio. The overall effect the individual musicians together with Aso evoke is that of a transcendental and arresting listening experience that will make you question the validity of all music you have been exposed to until this present day, rendering most your record collection oblique and utterly useless. That is the power stripped down simplicity and utter beauty evokes. You are warned�?� And if this initial release, which will massage your frontal earlobes to a big extent, is not enough yet, Pedal Records announced that its second release will be The Stars new full length album, which will be due at the end of May 2004. Stay tuned�?�.." - Johan Wellens.

Although Sasha has now released two full-length LPs and a 7�, she is not as well known for her music. Sasha is not a porn actress turned musician like a Traci Lords, Sasha has always made music.

She takes an experimental approach to making music in the form of sound collages which bring to mind artists such as Nurse With Wound and Coil.

Artist: WOLFE, CHELSEA
Title: Apokalypsis
Format: LP
Label: Pendu
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Its fitting that Chelsea Wolfes second album opens with a hair-raising, animalistic snarl — the sound of some beastly metamorphosis caught on tape. Ἀποκάλυψις (pronounced "apokalypsis") finds the L.A.- based artist perfecting her distinctly doom-drenched electric folk. Here she graduates from mobile 8-track experimentation to an actual studio, enlisting a few friends to help even as she maintains the strikingly visceral elements of her powerful debut, The Grime & the Glow (2010). The end result is a both a broader sprawl and a tighter claustrophobia, a serious heaviness of sound and spirit prone to unexpected moments of beauty and triumph. Rightly, the albums title is Greek for both "apocalypse" and "revelation." Wolfes gift for tense beauty reigns supreme on "Tracks (Tall Bodies)," where warm guitar, cavernous drums, and her beguiling voice engender an elemental feeling of regret in tune with the words: Its a machine were up against/Devoid of reason, devoid of sense." The upbeat "Demons" follows, seemingly as counterpoint, rolling forth on a damaged surf beat and becoming a careening steam engine of scratchy thrash and tortured cries. Later, "Moses" demonstrates what Wolfe may very well do best, cooing choral over grinding Sabbathy guitars, somehow hinting at an odd ebullience hidden in the dirging murk. Though Ἀποκάλυψιςs tone is decidedly dark, its a dynamic album, evidenced by buzzing, organ-soaked soul of "The Wasteland," the clanging blues of "Friedrichshain," and the haunted ambience of "To the Forest, To the Sea," which feels like a field recording from the bewitched woods of Wolfes youth. The LPs undeniable high point however, is the unforgettable "Pale on Pale." The seven-minute song slowly bores its way into the listeners skull thanks to Wolfes ghostly moan — which deals death at every lyrical turn — and the thick black metal chords that push it along. Somewhere between the blood-curdling scream and squalling feedback that close out the track, transcendence is achieved, and Wolfes transformation into a true force of nature is complete." - Pendu.

Title: Amore Tossico
Format: LP + CD
Label: Penny
Country: Italy
Price: $31.00
"1983s Amore tossico (Toxic Love) is a legendary cult film, a stark and unflinching look at Italys "junkie generation." Director Claudio Caligari approached the film more like a documentary than a work of fiction, casting recovering junkies as his actors; Caligari "imagined it more as a straight-up visual ethnography, hyperreal, replete with humor in the most grotesque situations -- like life." Accompanying Caligaris stark imagery and story is the soundtrack by Detto Mariano -- a prolific composer, arranger, and pianist -- who wrote the entirety of the score on his Fairlight Series IIx, a now-revered synthesizer that had just been released in 1983. The sound is therefore scary and up-to-date, a true companion to the vivid and rough imagery of the movie. This led the composer to a brand-new level of engagement; the machine is the tool, hence the music becomes something like the Italian answer to the industrial revolution. Coming from an academic background, Detto Mariano knew little of industrial music, but in fact Amore tossico can easily be associated with such pioneers of the genre as Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire. The soundtrack is dark, angular, harsh, and -- just at times -- funky, rivalling the intensity of Carpenters The Thing (1982) or Throbbing Gristles Heathen Earth (IRL 004CD/LP, 1980). Never before available on any format, this soundtrack has been mastered from the original tapes and is now available as a deluxe 140-gram LP in a gatefold sleeve with a bonus CD of the entire album plus a reproduction of the original film poster." - Penny.

Title: Stitched Phenomena
Format: Cass
Label: Pentiments
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
Edition of 100. “Leif Brush (b. 1932) is a pioneering sound artist who for over five decades has built something of a vast labyrinth of an artistic presence, in a certain sense having existed on the fringes of the more esoteric strands of early sound practices. During his time as a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the late 60s, Brush explored large scale installations that would often utilize the citys landscape as a platform for steel-strand based sounding constructs. After going on to become a professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth, he began to expand upon his ever-evolving concept of the “terrain instrument”, generally defined as a physical construct situated in nature that would harness the forces and vibrations of the earth in order to generate various types of sonic phenomena, often via the activation of triggers and sensors.

Stitched Phenomena contains the entirety of Brushs 2004 flagship composition “Earth Star Songs”, a 47 minute long “stitching” of sounds and recordings taken from an array of his analog constructs and terrain instruments spanning decades, paired with recordings produced by Jerry Chamkis Kosmophone. The result is an inexhaustibly complex amalgamation of hard-edged terrestrial and tactile phenomena contrasted by cosmically sourced retro-futuristic synth interjections. Prior to now, this piece had only ever existed on the internet in the form of low quality mp3s during the earlier days of netlabels. This issue marks its first ever physical release in proper form, rescued in full quality from its original master tape. In an edition of 100 with updated 2017 cover art by Brush himself.” - Pentiments.

Title: Lina in Nida
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“Mark Harwoods third album under his Astor moniker slips away from the obtuse atmospheres and concrete field recordings of Alcor and Inland (released on Graham Lambkins Kye label in 2012 and 2013 respectively). Lina in Nida sits more in a melodic electronic framework covering a wide range of sonic and emotional states. "The East" initiates proceedings as a proposed anthem for Britain during a potential invasion by ISIS. Things soon move into the uncomfortably claustrophobic "The Landowners," where an oblique narrative by Estonian artist Kris Lemsalu spirals into a blurred fantasy of musical roads, nocturnal wanderings, and entrapment under floorboards. The B-side relocates itself further out as "They Cling to Each Other" hovers over uncharted ketamine lows while "The Sleepwalkers" lurches around a spider-like environment. "Amusement" tackles a cosmic music, but one that hurtles itself far beyond the outer regions of the cosmos, while "5:00am" contains within the greatest sound known to mankind. As a further shift from reason, Lina in Nida is a thrilling expose of intense atmospheres, emotional states, and ecstatic physics. Recorded in a bedroom in Clapton, East London, throughout 2014 and 15. Mastered by Rashad Becker in August 2015. Matte sleeve with artwork by Mark Harwood and design by Maja Larsson. Edition of 400.” - Penultimate Press.

Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"The Filter of Reality is a machine imagined and built by Jacques Brodier - Le Havre, France. Penultimate Press is proud to publish the first ever collection of recordings by this unique French artist, researcher, writer and inventor. Between 3 and 30 MHz, radio waves have the property to travel around the Earth by bouncing on the ionosphere, which acts as an imperfect mirror, wave-agitated under the flux of suns particles. The machine explores this boundless electromagnetic ocean, where all radio broadcasts of Terran civilization mingle their voices with noise and strange signals from other places of the universe. That is how, during its odyssey through short waves, the Filter of Reality receives a wide range of this semantic noise and transposes it, so that it becomes audible for human ears. The noise captured by the antenna feeds into the Filter of Reality bearing the traces of multitudes of languages and of the events encountered. One can hear swimmers riding on huge waves, the voices of distant lands, a crowd of Babel or the archipelago of terrestrial civilisation tearing away from chaos into a reality carved out in the strange dimension of meaning. The Filter of Reality captures and distributes the ceaseless rustling of those spaces on a network of vibrating strings. This is made possible thanks to an optical modulator "played" with light and shade (also invented by Jacques Brodier). What results is a complex musical soundtrack, where the signals weave their own harmonics and rhythms. The artefacts captured and compiled for this release are at once unique, ambitious, foreign and beautiful. This is not just a record. Along with the artwork and essays this is significant snapshot of one mans endless years of research and restless experimentation. It is safe to say this is a release is quite unlike any other. Jacques Brodier Filtre De Réalité was mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs and comes in a limited edition lp of 400 copies adorned with 2 stunning full colour reproductions of Jacques Brodiers paintings and a lavish fold out 4 page insert featuring further images and two essays by Brodier, one in French and one English." - Penultimate Press.

"Penultimate Press present the second full length release by the acclaimed French inventor, instrument builder, musician, visual artist, researcher and writer Jacques Brodier. Following up the 2012 release Filtre De Réalité, Xhos De Villemahu expands Brodiers vision tenfold with two LPs worth of inexplicable audio recorded between 2009-2016. Operating from Le Havre, France since the 1970s, Jacques Brodier has created a uniquely personal vision that incorporates music, writings, paintings and drawings. Over the years he has amassed a large amount of material in all of these fields. The music he conjures from his self-built instrument, the Filtre De Réalité (Filter of Reality), harnesses the energies found in shortwave radio, harmonic strings, sensors, sheet metal and rotating glass spheres of sand. The resulting audio shatters time and space with voices of the deep past slamming up against a fantastic present. Frequencies dance in a whirl of frenzied excitement whilst elements of a cosmic science fiction leave a trail of neon lit bewilderment. A vast amount of writings, painting and drawings support the enormous world Brodier has constructed over the years. Xhos De Villemahu is an attempt to capture this substantial and significant world view into a complete package. Xhos De Villemahu arrives as a deluxe double LP in a gloss gatefold sleeve featuring a 32-page A4 booklet of images, essays and texts written by Brodier for the occasion. Utterly unique in vision and scope, Xhos De Villemahu is absolutely an experience unlike any other." - Penultimate Press.

"Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage Á Richard Demarco is a previously unissued recording by Henning Christiansen from 1971. In 1970, the Richard Demarco Gallery in collaboration with the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf organized the exhibition, Strategy: Get Arts. This celebration of art from Düsseldorf was held at the Edinburgh College of Art during the Edinburgh International Festival. The title of the exhibition was a palindrome created by André Thomkins and featured works by Joseph Beuys, Claus Böhmler, George Brecht, Henning Christiansen, Robert Filliou, Dorothy Iannone, Mauricio Kagel, and Dieter Roth amongst others. Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage Á Richard Demarco was sent to Richard Demarco as a gift following the exhibition. Having returned to Denmark, Christiansen, along with sound technician Peter Sakse, created Strategygetarts, a sound collage incorporating field recordings from urban spaces, supermarkets, a boxing game, etc. The sole "musical" element is a piano motif which repeatedly punctuates the recordings. The first side moves forwards, the flip back. A reverse groove will set you straight. Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage Á Richard Demarco comes in a high-gloss sleeve, featuring two original artworks by Henning Christiansen; Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.

Henning Christiansen sampled the field recording into the organ music from Eurasienstab. He gave this composition subsequently the title Requiem of Art fluxorum organum II Opus 50. That means a requiem over the role of art in the 1960s." --Ursula Reuter Christiansen, Møn, Denmark, October 20, 2015.

Title: Aurore
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
First vinyl reissue; originally released on CD in 1990 by Touch. "Through them, it is the volume of each word that becomes an “objectsculpture.” The word, the voice, the volume take shape with each other, unveiling a theatre that theatre usually ignores. In the power of voices and semantics, as well as in the severe body/mind combination, inseparable from each other, I find in Aurore a song of the bodies, indispensable to any sound values" - Henri Chopin. “Penultimate Press presents the first release in a three-part series based around the four field-recording-based works made between 1990 and 1994 by the legendary French act Étant Donnés (brothers Eric and Marc Hurtado, born 1959 and 1962 respectively in Rabat, Morocco). Aurore opens the triptych and is made from ambient sounds collected like dew from nature. The gathered sounds were then used as a sound texture for the poems strewn among the field resulting in a single entity of arresting sound and text. Aurore is focused around an alchemical fire/water battle, this water which does not wet the hands. Aurore shares some convulsive movements that establish a link with Étant Donnéss earlier works, for instance that exuding scream, worthy of the one Artaud uttered in his legendary 1947 radio program Pour en finir avec le jugement de Dieu. Eric and Marc Hurtado succeed in achieving what many sages consider to be the very purpose of magical art: to create ones own ritual and, being ones own referent, to become a vibrating point in the cosmos and be receptacle for natural energy, in the heat of the sun in an attempt to merge with the Whole. Aurore comes remastered and repackaged in a high-gloss sleeve with fully printed high-gloss inner sleeve, in a limited edition of 500 copies. It remains an extreme and beautiful sonic journey sitting outside of time.” - Penultimate Press. "Listening to Aurore, our two actors record, undoubtedly owing to the influence of the Mediterranean cradle, single umbilical cord of two great religions, the influence of both Latin and Arab worlds -- Gaelic short and long sounds can sometimes be perceived -- since their dictions are such a synthesis of several origins. Any true sound poetry is shattering, the really oral one is there in space, with the plus of the media machines, of the voices that slip through them, overwhelming them with the splendor of the bodies." - Henri Chopin.

“Run horse run Sting bee sting Fly fish fly Burn miracle burn How beautiful your eyes are when they look into the void” --Marc Hurtado. “This is the second of three reissues focusing on the works of Étant Donnés based on field recording and voice. Royaume (originally released on CD by Touch in 1991) is made up of four tracks and is a kind of purifying journey through the four elements that symbolically refers to the light evoked by the color green, an allegory of the grail and of the light-bringing angel. As to the poems, they tend to amount to their essentials, as is the case on the track "Matin," which is both Taoist and surrealistic. Aimant + Aimant - (originally released as a split CD and 10" by Danceteria in 1992) presents itself as a magical alchemical mantra based upon the force of love, the force of life. "Like true buffoons from ultra-world, Ericand Marc Hurtado succeed in achieving what many sages consider to be the very purpose of magical art: to create ones own ritual and , being ones own referent, to become a vibrating point in the cosmos and be a receptacle for natural energy, like those bright patches or that black point recurring in their magical music, real poems-paintings and irremediably aiming , like an insect caught between the circle and the cross, in the heat of the sun in an attempt to merge with the Whole." --Stéphane Duval. “Two pole like two bodies like two hearts like two magnets.

"Penultimate Press is proud to release a unique vinyl of the only known recordings by Danish artist Poul Gernes.

Poul Gernes only ever recorded just under 20 minutes of music. His entire musical production is therefore on this LP. The recording was done on a Tandberg Recorder at Poul Gernes house in the south of Sweden in 1969. He is playing an old harmonium salvaged from a local primary school. The result is an informal quasi­-drone work, which, along with the ambient sounds and domestic interference, comes across as a snapshot of the recording itself, a sonic Polaroid. Poul Gernes (1925­-1996) was one of the central figures in Danish art life during the latter half of the twentieth century. His experimental art holds a firm place on an international level and as one of the founders of the legendary Den Eksperimenterende Kunstskole (The Experimenting Art School) he has exerted considerable influence on a whole generation of artists who make up the Danish post war avant­ garde. His wide-ranging body of work is still a source of inspiration for younger generations of artists in Denmark and abroad. This recording was initiated by John Hunov who was the chairman of Ung Dansk Kunst (Young Danish Art) an association for the presentation and publication of many Danish artists of the period. A series of cassettes were commissioned as a supply on demand service prompting Poul Gernes to instigate a musical work. The recording was done during a prolific period of creativity and lingers in the current spirit of endless possibilities. The combination of an old harmonium and a tape recorder manifests a yet untried option: why not compose music as well? A childs voice, his daughter Ulrikka, is heard making small remarks and pointing out when the needle enters the red. This audial domestic background is too included as an incidental yet natural part of the work as Poul Gernes saw no limit between art and life. Poul Gernes major musical inspirations at the time were J.S. Bach, Terry Riley and Gregorian chant. An alleged encounter with John Cage and close collaborations with, for instance, composer and Fluxus artist Henning Christiansen are likely to have encouraged the musical endeavour. During the 1960s Poul Gernes also made a large number of happenings and performances, together with amongst others Per Kirkeby and Joseph Beuys. Originally issued in a miniscule edition on cassette in 1969 this was re-issued in 1998 as a very limited edition CDR via John Nixons Document Records, Australia. This is the first vinyl issue of these recordings.

Poul Gernes comes as limited edition one sided lp of 400 copies. A beautiful etching of a Gernes painting appears on the b-side and all is packaged in a full colour sleeve retaining the nature of the recording itself. Also includes an insert with a list of Pouls hypothetical track titles." - Penultimate Press. For more information on Poul Gernes: http://www.gernes.dk

"Matthew P. Hopkinss Blue-Lit Half Breath, his second full-length for Penultimate Press, presents a curious and compelling listen that harnesses his deeply personal and paranoid vision into the ultimate beauty/horror object. Since the mid-2000s Hopkins has distinguished himself as master of multiple musical forms including bent song, freeform concrète, improvised electronics, and techno. Under his own name he has produced a most singular take on abstracted voice, feedback, field recordings, and found sounds. With Blue-Lit Half Breath Hopkins furthers his domestic inquiry into subconscious sounds with a series of vignettes that hover between hissing clunk, atmospheric creep, and improvised piano refrains. Among all this the voice of Hopkins appears throughout as a shadowy narrator delightfully disturbing the sonic play. Blue-Lit Half Breath is a late-night-oil-burning masterpiece that resides within a zone orbiting its own logic. 180-gram LP in glossy sleeve. Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.

Vent proposes a Frankenstein assemblage of the awry ambience heard on the recently acclaimed Nocturnes lp merged with a more extreme take on the ketamine indie crossover of his earlier outfit, Vincent Over the Sink. Side A features four transcendental propositions bathing in perverse transitions, inhuman vocals and a singular audio perspective where spacious room recordings weave amongst crude studies in direct input. Side B extends the dichotomy of grit and beauty into more spacious planes as the hovering grace of the side long Wobbly Study is interrupted by melodies at the point where melody is visited by sound. Vent is a unique exhumation of sonics and song, the ambient and the uncanny. One which raises an eyebrow to the sky from the scratchy floorboards below." - Penultimate Press.

Hour House is the duo of Mark Leacy and Sam Kenna, formerly of the Newcastle-based outfit Castings. Chiltern comprises individual tracks folded into two side-long suites in a unique excursion through foreign encounters, warm surrounds, and disorienting comfort. Field recordings, electronics, samples, guitars, voice, and atmospherics all contribute to form a bewitching whole. Many questions are raised: is this a soundtrack to a mental experience or an altered take on a familiar reality? Is the third section based on the sound of a basketball court? Does the fourth form a song? Where do the original Soviet science fiction soundtracks fit into all this? Is this sound or music? Simultaneously ambiguous and accessible, Chiltern is a consciousness-tickling ride unlike any other. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs.

Title: See Sun Think Shadow
Format: LP
Label: Perfect Wave
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
Edition of 200. “Sapropelic Pycnic is the solo project of Kathleen Baird of long running avant psych project Spires That In The Sunset Rise. See Sun Think Shadow is a collection of piano improvisations that bring to mind the playful, spacious qualities of Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, the unrestraint of Cecil Taylor, the rolling arpeggiations of Alice Coltrane, and the ghostliness of Arvo Pärt.
On this debut release See Sun Think Shadow Baird releases eight tracks performed on a Steinway Grand in December of 2011 in a church in her hometown of Decatur, Illinois recorded just days before her fathers passing on December 30, 2011. These improvisations have a raw focus of emotional intensity and calm that premiere Bairds classical piano training with her very own style of punctuation, spacing and repetition.” - Perfect Wave.

Title: Rice Field Silently Riping In The Night
Format: CD
Label: Periodic Document
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"There are times when all the music your bruised psyche can take is the softest of whispers, the slightest of instrumental caresses. When an ounce too much pressure could make your veins cave inwards. At times like these, Reiko Kudos previous solo album ("Fire inside my hat", Org Records, 1997) has always been my balm of choice. A gauze-thin collection of songs with minimal piano accompaniment, sung in a voice half between a child and a deeply hesitant angel... For those who would rather trust a history lesson than their own senses, Reiko Omura, as she was known then, first came to light on the Tokyo underground in the late seventies and early eighties. She was part of the Minor circle (which also gave birth to Fushitsusha, High Rise, Kosokuya, Gaseneta and many others) of musical obsessives exploring new and highly personal collisions of noise, improv, rock. Reikos contribution was via groups like Worst Noise and Noise. The latters sole release, "Tenno", saw her trumpet and voice meeting the Bach-doom organ and drums of influential scenester Tori Kudo in a totally unique monument to no-wave noise depression. She later married Kudo, appearing occasionally with his avant-pop Christo-mystic idiot-savant group Maher Shalal Hash Baz, but releasing nothing under her own name until the Org disk in the late nineties. Rice field..." sees Reiko revisiting the pattern of short songs mostly based around one-finger piano motifs, so structurally simple as to be virtually transparent. This time additional flashes of sensitive instrumental colour are added by husband Tori and various members of the Puka-Puka Brians on wavering backing vocals, violin, guitar, percussion, euphonium and percussion. The music treads a sure and private path between a perfect childlike naivete and the amateur aesthetic that has long been Toris goal (he has spent twenty years arriving at a point of psychedelic mastery where he sounds like he bought his first guitar yesterday). Reikos songs and vocals are the weakly pulsing centrepoint though. She sings of life, dying flowers, love, and nursing home residents with the unforced naturalness of a mother alone with her child, a bird in the forest, her pellucid melodies seemingly accidental. It is nothing short of heart-stoppingly gorgeous. And as an honest-to-god example of happiness glimpsed through the quotidian, artistic perfection all the more perfect for not being striven for, you couldnt wish for anything more. A perfect prescription for those moments of fragility when you doubt your own pulse." - Alan Cummings. Highly Recommended!!

This features their debut 7" EP on the illustrious 99 Records label (produced by Glenn Branca, from 1980), plus their Tellus comp. track and their album on Neutral from 1982, Beat It Down (produced by Wharton Tiers). Barbara Ess was the co-editor of Just Another Asshole magazine, an ex-member of the Theoretical Girls and a pretty crucial figure in the whole NY no wave scenario.

"Were obviously not the only ones whove been anxiously awaiting a third record from Albright. And here it is?yet another blown‐out, lo-fi, catchy punk jammer with loads of hooks and sweet riffs to complete the trifecta. Albrights still a fine young man and hes doing so well. Hes still on drugs and hes still happy hes a genius (and so are we), but hes not singing about any of that on this record. This Sacto punk has brutalized us twice before, but never quite like this. The third times definitely a charm and even though Charles is no longer a loner he is still absolutely in charge on this one. Weight finds Mr. A drumless for the first time ever, but the repetitive riff-tensity hides the lack of percussion pretty damn well on this wham‐bam-thank-you-maam punker. For the B-side, Charles mustve taken a ride on the Silver Machine, but hes obviously still feeling mean, cuz the riff behind I Am The Counter Culture (Drop Out) sounds quite a bit like a certain Hawkwind jam we all know and love. But this aint no cover song, (Drop Out) stands on its own as a killer psychedelic punk number for the ages. This incredible single is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies and precedes the sure to be mind melting debut full-length due out this Fall.

Its full of stripped down, super upbeat, catchy, and totally DIY-style rocknroll jams, heavily influenced by New Zealands legendary DIY indie rockers, The Clean and 90s bedroom recording pop savants. Brain Idea took most of the material on their now out-of-print and highly sought after demo cassette tape and re-recorded it with much more depth and reverb, especially on the vocals. Theyve added some great instrumental interludes that tie the tracks together which are quite Kraut-y in nature (these guys were the ones behind that NOi! tape (classic Oi! punk cuts covered Krautrock-style), mind you). The dudes in Brain Idea also have a part-time Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band called Graveyard Train, so you know theyre of good taste. They even cover the Clean for chrissakes.

"If you dug the brutal noise rock sounds crammed onto the one side of their debut EP, youre gonna flip over their brand new LP. Its heavier, louder, and longer. Thats right, two full sides of Cacaws signature noise rock brutality. A big selling point for their first release was the fact that two former members of the Coughs are in Cacaw, however, Cacaw have since garnered their own audience and the Coughs reference seems barely worth mentioning any longer. For those of you who havent heard them yet, Cacaw takes the Coughs sound and distills it down to a more minimal yet no less intense brand of really fucking groovy noise rock. Cacaw have quickly become one of Chicagos most popular underground rock bands. Cacaws second record, just like their first release, is a doozie both sonically and visually. The grooves on the marbled colored vinyl contain some incredibly intense jams. The card stock tri-color jacket has also been diligently hand screen printed by band members." - Permanent.

"Drunks With Guns were a nihilistic, noise rock / dumb punk band from St. Louis in the mid-80s. Their self-titled LP from 1987 included 9 songs worth of Brainbombs-meets-Flipper style punk with titles like Dick in One Hand..., Punched in the Head, and Wonderful Subdivision. This band is legendary and theres loads of rumor and heresy surrounding the legend. The band formed in 1984, released about a half-dozen singles and a couple LPs, played four shows and called it quits (well, in the same way Chrome called it quits anyway. The original singles and the LPs (and even the Complete Drunks With Guns tape) are virtually impossible to find these days. Among others, Monty Buckles of the Lamps is a big fan of the DWG and he wrote an excellent article in the last issue of Z-Gun that we definitely recommend reading at some point. Anyhow, weve reissued the Drunks With Guns self-titled LP in an edition of 100 tapes and theyre ready for consumption. This tape aint no bootleg neither. We actually took the time to get in touch with Mike Doskocil, the singer from Drunks With Guns and got permission for the release. We were hoping to do an LP reissue, but apparently the master tapes are in unusable condition. Dont fret, these tapes were professionally dubbed and the fidelity is about as good as your gonna get out of a cassette tape (read: they sound like they should, especially for a Drunks With Guns release). Dont have a cassette deck? What better excuse to get one than a Drunks With Guns tape! Tape decks are littering thrift stores everywhere. Save them from the landfills and enjoy some of the sweet jams that have been issued on the cassette tape format lately, there have been some great ones!

Those recordings have now been preserved to wax as Runnings debut 12" EP. This eponymous EP comes housed in a jacket with really interestingly created artwork and contains exactly 13 totally brutal weird punk songs. If these guys were jockier, theyd be a hardcore band. Thankfully, theyre too arty for that ish. This record fucking rips! The first pressing is limited to 500 copies!" -Permanent

"Never before released archival material from Chicagos answer to Germanys 70s kosmische/electronic scene!!!!!!! Featuring Bil Vermette!!!! VCSR existed between 1978 and 1984. They werent a band or a group so much as it was a collective. They never had an official release but recorded over 60 reels of tape from which cassettes were mixed down for their own use or to give to friends. They were to be the first record on the Waxx Traxx label with Al Jourgenson producing but that never came to be. Tape #4 is one of these raw reels recorded in 1979 and 1980. There are overdubs but no edits or redos, it was live onto tape and then maybe a second pass to add leads, etc. Many of the reels are live onto one track only. This was done before they had a mixer. Most of these reels are now in Washington state and some are here in Chicago and some are not accounted for. Instruments used: Arp-2600, Korg MS-20, Rhythm Ace, Yamaha & Farfisa organs, guitar, ElectroComp synthesizers and various other keyboards and effects --Bil Vermette.

Title: Katha Visions
Format: LP
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"A reissue of BIL VERMETTEs phenomenal private press LP, Katha Visions, from 1984. "Fans of all things SYNTH absolutely must hear this LP. Bil is a synthesizer aficionado and it shows.  The first track on the dark side is Mountain Funeral, an aptly titled ambient synth dirge if there ever was one. The title track ventures into territory that was likely influenced by Terry Riley and couldve easily been an influence on Bitchin Bajas. Its a repetitive, layered, and soothingly long centerpiece to the album. Long Trail Down closes out the A-side with effects that sound like seagulls floating over the top of the layered synth chord drones and melodies. Its an easy track to get lost in, but then again, so is this whole record. The light side (aka Side B) begins with Morning Dance an upbeat number featuring the first appearance of synthetic rhythms. Up to this point, Katha Visions has been completely instrumental, but Someday Soon features the only appearance by guest vocalist DAN COOPER. Coopers voice is melancholic and robotic, which fits in with the rest of the track perfectly. Staircase sounds like a long-lost John Carpenter horror flick theme while the albums closer Opposites Attract is the curveball track on Katha Visions. It includes the first and only appearance by BRUCE WALTERS, an old high school chum of Vermettes. Bruce disrupts the synth-clusiveness of the record with some soaring guitar lines that have us wondering what else he was up to around this time. We could also see Moon Duo doing a pretty bitchin cover of this one. Edition of 300 copies." - Permanent.

Latin rhythms, fuzzy, wah-wah guitar leads, and melodic organ patterns are sewn sweetly together to create a quilt of psychedelic pop that would comfort even the coldest Brazilian psych aficionado. This LP was one of the best unheard and under‐released records of 2011.

And yes, Pierced Arrows too! But preceding both of his more famous bands (and others like The Rats, etc, etc) was Zipper! Formed when Fred and Toody Cole returned to Portland, Oregon after homesteading in Alaska, Zipper was the beginning of both Whizeagle Records, their in-house label, and Freds long illustrious DIY RnR career. Equal parts acid fried psych, raw blistering guitar fireworks, proto-punk pummel and bone crunchin heavy rock machismo, Zipper was Freds headfirst dive back into the rock world after his disillusionment with the garage scene post Weeds / Lollipop Shoppe. No managers to tell him what songs to play or what sound was in. No label to fight with. Just Fred Cole and a close knit group of fellow disenchanted rock n rollers (Lorry Erk, Jim Roos and Greg Shadoan), playing their in-the-red whiskey and cigarette fueled music as loud and furious as can be!!! So for those into scorching Acid Archives psych rock, Zipper is yer next fix! And for those those Fred and Toody Cole completists, this reissue is ESSENTIAL, as originals go for as much as $250!!!! For everyone else, if you like yer rock n roll, RAW, MEAN AND UNHINGED, just like it should be." - Permanent.

Format: Double LP
Label: Personal Injury
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"As with all matters related to Ariel Pink and R. Stevie Moore the exact details are vague -- but the origins of this compilation can be traced to Ariel Pinks My Molly EP from 2006. Included with the EP was a postcard insert that featured a hand drawn road-map to what Ariel considered to be RSMs best songs from each era. This illustrated his deep appreciation for, and understanding of, R. Stevies vast catalog. Nearly all of the selections on this release come from that list and all were recorded between 1973 and 1984. The final sequence for Ariel Pinks Picks, Volume One was sent by Ariel to R. Stevie around 2006 -- but the release didnt materialize until 2011 when Nick Noto (Big Muff Radio) discovered it while assisting with the digital reincarnation of the RSM Cassette Club. Later in 2011, Laughable Recordings released a limited run of 100 cassettes that quickly sold out and have been highly sought-after by fans ever since. It is worth noting that the majority of these songs do not appear on R. Stevie Moores many other compilations; and this is the first time that eleven of the seventeen tracks have ever appeared on vinyl. This essential collection was carefully remastered for vinyl release by Carl Saff in early 2014." - Personal Injury.

Title: Delicate Tension
Format: LP
Label: Personal Injury
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Personal Injury is pleased to present R. Stevie Moores classic 2nd album Delicate Tension, originally released by Stevies uncle on HP Music in 1978. Delicate Tension is regarded as an absolute highlight of RSMs massive discography and was featured as one of his six most “essential” albums in The WIREs recent cover article. Reissued for the first time on vinyl in an exact-repro sleeve and mastered from a digital transfer off the original analog reels. - Personal Injury.

"His first LP made in New York. Along with Swing And A Miss, Delicate Tension shows Moore at the peak of his powers. Every track is a winner and theres an abundance of his gorgeous songsmithery. Sporting a sonic clarity and balance, and with an emphasis on lean, slightly wonky instrumentation, the cool breeze of new wave is distinctly present. Exquisite." - Matthew Ingram, The WIRE (2012).

"R. Stevie Moores first album upon moving to New Jersey and immersing himself in the burgeoning New York new wave scene, 1978s Delicate Tension is quite a leap from 1976s Phonography, both in style and execution. Where Phonography has a definite progressive rock feel, Delicate Tension is dominated by short, punchy power pop rockers like the breathless, witty opener “Cool Daddio,” the sly McCartney-like bounce of “Schoolgirl” and the sarcastic Ramones blur of “Apropos Joe.” Elsewhere, Moores instrumental arsenal (as before, he plays every instrument himself with the exception of about half a dozen drum parts and the flutes on the anguished “You Are Too Far From Me”) expands to include an adorably rinky-dink electric piano on “Funny Child” (which sounds as if the Residents had suddenly decided to write a late-era Monkees song) and more synthesizers, which underpin forward-looking early synth-pop experiments like the frantic voice-modified robo-bop “Horizontal Hideaway.” Delicate Tension is an album of surprising emotional depth. Best of all, the albums sound is an enormous improvement over the extremely lo-fi Phonography; it stands next to Roy Woods Boulders, Todd Rundgrens Something/Anything?, and McCartney as one of the best one-man-band albums of the 70s."  - Stewart Mason, All Music Guide.

"I can only urge some latently adventurous Major Label to bestow a few of those hot dogs in the satin baseball jackets up off their A&R asses and out to Verona, New Jersey, for a reminder of what actual talent sounds like. I mean, heres R. Stevie, bereft of the requisite beans to book himself some stretch-out time in a legit studio, and Fleetwood Macs been dicking around with their “long awaited” next album for what, two, three years? Is there no fucking justice? Until the Verona Visionarys turned loose in a real studio, though, we can be truly satisfied with Delicate Tension, a broadly eclectic album unified by a seductive pop-rock logic, and distinguished by some of the most accurate and animated overdubbing youre likely to hear coming from any quarter. Vocally, Moore--who played virtually all of the instruments here--most closely resembles Syd Barrett during his Madcap Laughs phase. For what few slumming mainstreamers may be reading this, suffice it to say that Toto will never sound the same after a few rounds with the redoubtable R. Stevie." - Kurt Loder, Trouser Press (1979).

"Who is R. Stevie Moore and why is he destined to obscurity -- or, what great force in the universe will shape this raw genius into a commercially viable success? With the release of Delicate Tension (a most intriguing album), we become ever more aware of an incredible talent rising up from the pits of mediocrity. His vocal style is similar to that of Kevin Ayers. His technical prowess is as creative as Zappa or Rundgren. The self-produced quality of this album and his two previous releases, Stance and Phonography, amuses and enlightens us to R. Stevie Moores private world of sharp-witted cynicism. The music explores everything from improvisational jazz/pop to romantic folk ballads. It is essentially upbeat, a cross-weave of musical textures. If nothing else, R. Stevie Moore will be an important figure in the pop/rock annals of obscurity, but I would encourage all discerning ears to listen to Delicate Tension at least ten times. Can you take this maniacal intelligence? This is entertainment. Will someone take R. Stevie Moore from the obscurity of New Jersey and give him control of the world?" - Quazimodo, CMJ (1979).

Reissued for the first time on vinyl in an exact-repro sleeve and remastered from an analog source." - Personal Injury.

“After nearly two decades of compiling lo-fi four-track bedroom recordings for his self-released cassettes, Glad Music is the first album Moore has recorded in a proper studio. The difference is startling. Glad Music is R. Stevie Moore at his most accessible.” - Stewart Mason, All Music Guide.

“This is the first time Moores indulged in a major, big-studio project, and its worked wonders. Glad Music has convinced me that R. Stevie Moore is a genius of a rare order, with the ability to marshall a bewildering diversity of styles and influences and mould them into something quite peculiarly his own. Hes one of the few practitioners of post-modernist cross-pollination with the wit and sheer taste to produce a worthy hybrid. Buy this record.” - Andy Gill, NME (1986).

“Despite plaudits from the likes of Trouser Press and increasingly favourable treatment in the UK inkies, Moore was unable to convert his critical reputation into sales. Laid down in a professional recording studio, Glad Music feels like a last failed stab at connecting with an audience. Its as though Moore suspects that, all along, that was the problem. Consequently, although its almost conventional, it is, thanks to glistening steel-string acoustic guitar, often beautiful.” - Matthew Ingram, The WIRE (2012).

“Shuffling, hidden and subterranean electronics.
On “Social Acid” the musical element of TB is stripped away further and the underlying machinery shows through even more. This recording continues the dark hallucinations of classic noise and industrial to unparalleled heights of depersonalization.
The most remarkable thing about TB, and what comprises such a huge part of his sound, is the perfectly distorted and tape coated production. This is music that exists at the forefront of an underground lineage but still bears the fidelity of some of the earliest 80s tape experiments in the genre--wherein the difference between matter and sound became obscured.
The attitude expressed here could be considered post-punk in the sense of this being the inevitable end of where punk music would have lead in a perpetual urban dystopia. Once the final transformation takes place you can barely distinguish the dissonant echoes of guitar, vocals and everyday rhythms of rock n roll music.

Country: USA
Price: $22.00
49 copies made. "In about 1991 the Yeast Culture studio (Incubator) was at the Kalberer Hotel Supply Warehouse in Seattle. We then began a project to gather together every recorded moment from the last few years. For this, several reel to reel recorders were used to create very lengthy multitracked stereo montages from all available cassette master recordings. Over a period of weeks, all sounds that we had recorded from before 1987 up to about 1991 were transferred to reel in a vast production process. The results of the reel production process were outputted back onto three cassettes, using higher speeds, in order to fit the material into the format of three 45 minute sides of sound collage. These sounds tapes have never been released in any way until now. They were, however used in the process of the 7" single Wormhole/Birdbath which was published in the 3x7" single set Circusirus (Smorgasbird); the sounds of that single, however were processed in a very complex way, including a total shift to higher frequency, in a way which removes it completely from the three master tapes. The Wormhole/Birdbath recordings utilized several performers in a few sessions. Each session had three performers, two being the Yeast Culture core of Abo and Allen, and the third being another person such as Key, Birdshit, or Dale. Performers simply used a bank of switches to route sound to other members of the triad (these custom switch nodes were called Chaos Boards, and they formed a small network). Sounds were chopped and moved around the stereo spectrum in this fashion. The chaos tapes are not the same as this Shit on a Shingle set, but play a part in the new 2013 remix. Shit on a Shingle times out to about 3 albums worth of pure sound collage – on cassette. There isnt repeated material. The sound result has elements of the Rena Leicia “sound," but is more dynamic and ever changing. Its a kind of sound that Yeast Culture was developing which did not appear on any compilations. Its a more opened up free form process, with a wiggly abstract perspective. We hope you find this 7" Shingle to be our best yet! Its the gravy, Shit on a Shingle." - Petri Supply.

"Cem Karaca announces his intent to slay all enemies of Istanbuls leftist counterculture with stompin prog keyboards. Sophisticated and passionate, with flamboyant taste in sunglasses, Cem Karaca led Istanbuls music fans through a period of violent political turmoil. Karaca reworked traditional folk lyrics with molten electric bass lines that played up both a poets broiling righteousness and also his listeners common ground with their elders in Turkeys history. 1975s Nem Kaldi? gathers more 60s-70s singles that lead the listener through Karacas own musical history, skipping across various collaborations.

Title: s/t

Price: $27.00
"First-ever vinyl reissue of this prog/psych masterpiece by cult Arabian band Osiris, their 1982 debut album. A killer blend of 70s-sounding hard, progressive/psychedelic sounds with long, ripping Minimoog and analog synth attacks smashed into mellow vibes and Arabian folky touches, with hard lead guitar, exotic percussion, floating rhythm section, and English vocals. Osiris formed in Bahrain, the small island country in the Persian Gulf, in the late 70s, but its story goes back to 1969, when talented brothers Mohamed and Nabil Alsadeqi formed a funk rock band called Witch. The band broke up when Mohamed left to pursue his studies in Texas, while his brother Nabil left for London. Upon returning to Bahrain in 1980, the two brothers decided to form the first progressive rock band from Bahrain. It was not easy to find like-minded musicians in their town, but they succeeded, with help from Mohammed Shafii (bass), Sami Al-Jamea (keyboards), Mohamed Amin Kooheji (guitar, bass, vocals), and Abdul Razzak Aryan (keyboards). Mohamed and Nabil began working out an original repertoire that would fuse musical complexity, melodic richness, and Arab culture. They took the name "Osiris" from Egyptian mythology, not only for its sound but also for its associations with Arab culture, youth, and fertility. But the definitive Osiris line-up came up when they added a charismatic singer named Isa Janahi. Osiris made their live debut at the end of 1981. Janahi wore flashy, colored clothes and capes and captivated the audience with his presence on stage. The group also used lasers, a light show, and smoke bombs, all deftly handled by friends of the band. Osiris was recorded at the only eight-track studio in Bahrain at the time. It was recorded and mixed in just three days. As there werent any record pressing plants in Bahrain, the band had to press the albums in the Philippines. They sold 1000 copies in Bahrain, but a few made their way to the USA and the UK, appearing in some rare records list by those in the know. Osiris will please not only those into classic prog-rock in the vein of Camel, Yes, or Pink Floyd, but also those for looking for exotic, psychedelic sounds and beats. Master tape sound. Includes insert with photos and liner notes." - Pharaway Sounds.

Title: Ame Debout
Format: LP
Label: Philip
Country: Brazil
Price: $21.00
“First-time vinyl reissue of two extraordinary documents from Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes. Born from the tumult of the 68 riots in France, Ribeiro + Alpes defined a uniquely Gallic take on the progressive psychedelia of the time. This is ecstatic music fusing European medieval traditions with the contemporary free jazz of the era. Ribeiro, with her confrontational and surrealistic poetry, along with Patrice Moullets invented instruments, defined a genre unto themselves and created some of the most original music of the early 70s with these two masterpieces. Ame Debout breaks much new ground for 1971, with Alpes joined by Gong keyboardist Patrice Lemoine and his bassist brother Jean-Sébastien. Rather than trying to fuse recognizable musical styles with vocals, Ame Debout illustrates Alpess relationship with Ribeiro as something instantly more elemental and complicated. The music launches immediately into a radical sound world of acoustic guitar, bass, stabbing and soaring organ, scuttling percuphone, and celestial cosmophone. The album retains a repetition stretched across tracks and time that shifts ever so slightly but rarely responds directly to Ribeiros vocals. The bands instrumental work drifts hazily beneath Ribeiros swells, supporting her harmonically but never displaying enough ego to act as anything other than a platform for her existential angst, as if to conjure her id onto tape. These elements converge on Ame Debout, transforming a largely improvised combination of instrumentation and vocals into the utmost emotional expression. Included on the legendary NWW list. Remastered sound. One-time limited pressing of 500 copies.” - Philip.

Paix, released in 1972, is considered Catherine Ribeiro + Alpess masterpiece and rightfully so! The album marked a change in the musical direction of the band, evolving into a more cosmic sound achieved by way of much improvised propulsive energy. Paix floats, shrouded by a strong, uniquely medieval, Gallic folk influence. Composed mainly of two expansive suits, Paix delivers a unique amalgam of progressive, spacey instrumentals (due largely to Moullets homemade instruments: percuphone, cosmophone, and orgolia) standing in sharp contrast to Ribeiros severe yet hypnotic vocals, both seemingly informed by the same shadowy depths of feeling. It is on Paix that this collaboration reached its summit, producing some of Ribeiro and Moullets most haunting and passionate work. A landmark album FINALLY reissued on its original format.

"The fifth and final release by Far East Family Band (if you include 1973s Nihonjin, released under the Far Out banner), 1977s Tenkujin was the first of the bands albums to be released in the U.S. on the small and short-lived California-based All Ears label. Without Kitaro, who by this time had departed to pursue a solo career, the band reverted to its earlier ballad-based sound, this time supported on drums by former Samurai alumnus, Yujin Harada. The expected Pink Floyd influences appear in abundance, although this time the songs are sung partly in English and in Japanese. Another solid album from what many consider to be Japans finest new age/psychedelic group. On 180 gram vinyl." -Phoenix

Title: The Cave Down To The Earth
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"180 gram LP version. Regarded by many as the first Japanese progressive rock group, the Far East Family Band, whose first album release was under the name Far Out, released "The Cave" Down To The Earth in 1975. Influential in the creation of the bands distinctive psychedelic sound was keyboard player Kitaro, who went on to establish himself as a major new age artist in the 80s. Although the band was often categorized as new age too, their sound was distinctly progressive and often brought comparisons with Tangerine Dream and early Pink Floyd. The ethereal, space-rock quality of the bands music is here in abundance but the centerpiece is without doubt the title track, which starts off in a mellow mood but then becomes a killer guitar jam. For music fans that have yet to discover the delights of 70s Japanese psychedelic rock, "The Cave" Down To The Earth is a fabulous introduction. Housed in a die-cut sleeve with a printed inner sleeve. Includes the original LP insert." -Phoenix

"Gatefold LP version. Fully-remastered, first-ever vinyl reissue. Prior to metamorphosing into Far East Family Band, Japans Far Out released this sole, space-y, guitar-drenched psychedelic prog album in 1971. Although the Floyd influences are highly apparent, the band produces an original sound which defines its own unique identity rather than being a reflection of the British and American bands that were dominating the genre. Although there is a keyboard-dominated opening, synthesizers are relegated to a supporting role, and their sparse presence is restricted to occasional sound effects. The psychedelic ambiance comes largely from the guitars, electric sitars and intelligent percussion. The original album contained just two single-sided tracks, and the intense guitar soloing, fantastic sound effects, including gongs and howling wind drones, combine to create an album of sparse beauty which effortlessly merges exotic Asian instrumentals with a psych sound occasionally reminiscent of Saucerful Of Secrets. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl." - Phoenix.

Title: Cauldron
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
Repressed. "Deluxe LP format only; 180 gram pressing. Cauldron was Fifty Foot Hoses first and most famous recorded work, released on Limelight Records in 1968. Founded by Cork Marcheschi, the band played continuously around the Bay area of northern California throughout the mid-60s. Marcheschi, who had developed a taste for R&B and the avant-garde music of composers such as Edgard Varèse, started out as the bands bass player, but his interest in experimental music prompted him to develop his own musical instrument, similar in function to the hybrid developed by Simeon Cox, and which was the underpinning of the Silver Apples sound. The band played a lot of gigs, but the experimental nature of their music tended to perplex audiences unused to such sounds. However, a four-track demo led to the band signing on the experimental Mercury subsidiary, Limelight Records, and under the eye of producer, Dan Healey (later to work extensively with the Grateful Dead), Cauldron appeared in 1969. As the album didnt fit into any particular mold, it largely went un-noticed at the time, but to the modern listener, this is an album that has stood the test of time particularly as Marcheschi used just about every electronic device known to man, including audio generators, echodette, squeaky box, siren, ring oscillator circuits and two Theremins. Given Cauldrons lack of success, the band disintegrated, although several members were to quickly resurface in the musical Hair. However, by the late 70s and early 80s, interest in the bands singular sound was rekindled, with the likes of Pere Ubu, Throbbing Gristle and Chrome all deriving inspiration from its music. An important and influential album." - Phoenix.

Satori is a conceptual hard rock/psych album driven by Hideki Ishimas furious guitar licks which erupt and explode over the harmonic heart beat of the drums and bass. Yamanakas banshee-like vocal style turned him into an occidental Iggy Pop or Robert Plant while the band itself was rapidly becoming Japans answer to Led Zeppelin. Satori is a huge album in every way. From power chords to Eastern-tinged North African six-string freak-outs and crashing tom-toms, the band flexes its collective muscle from start to finish. In short, this is a real rock classic of the type they simply dont make any more.” - Phoenix.

Price: $23.00
"180 gram LP version. Although post-Group Scene band Flowers were gaining increasing popularity in late 60s Tokyo, founder and guiding light Yuya Uchida was becoming increasingly frustrated that cult status was not translating into commercial success. Watching a rehearsal for the Tokyo version of the hit U.S. musical Hair, Uchidas wily gaze fell upon the Afro-sporting cast member Yamanaka Akira aka Joe. Uchida liked what he saw and heard so much, that he invited Joe to sing guest lead vocals at the next Flowers gig, and so impressed was he with the audiences response to the singers opening number, that he knew a direction-changing discovery had been made. Gone was Flowers and in its place, Flower Travellin Band emerged with a whole new sound and a charismatic and talented front man leading the charge, a relentless process that would see the singer become the sound of FTB with his career ascending as the fortunes of the band decreased. Eventually, the inevitable happened and Uchida disbanded FTB in 1975, after which the bands record label, Atlantic, offered the world one final, posthumous release in a greatest hits package, The Times, with the artist as "Joe With The Flower Travellin Band" becoming the bands epitaph. Sadly, Joe died of cancer in August 2011, but he will long be remembered as the voice of Japans most successful and enduring musical ensembles, Flower Travellin Band.

Consequently, the groups live appearances became less frequent and increasingly clandestine. All the bands albums were released in very small quantities, and because of the groups reputation for secrecy and violence, as well as the difficulty in tracking down their recordings, Les Rallizes Denudés has assumed almost mythical status.

"The best-known studio recordings by Les Rallizes Dénudés is the legendary Mars Studio sessions from 1980. The tracks were laid down during the tenure in the group of guitarist Fujio Yamaguchi. Yamaguchi is one of the more notorious figures in the Japanese rock underground. He was born to a Japanese mother and a black British father, brought up in a reformatory before channeling his anger and energy into a series of rock bands including Group Sounds garage rockers The Dynamites and proto-glam stompers Murahachibu. Yamaguchis sojourn in Rallizes lasted just over a year, from early 1980 to March 1981, but the weightless, languid weird-form blues created by the meshing of Mizutanis billowing feedback and Yamaguchis acid-etched lines has been regarded by many Japanese fans as one of the groups peaks. The fourth disc in the set comprises a live show from the same period as the studio recordings. Recorded on September 11, 1980 at the Yaneura club in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, this show was previously released under the title Double Heads September, though it was not included in the Double Heads 6CD document of Fujios tenure in the group.

The band played a few live gigs and released this lone album before disbanding. The group consisted of 9 musicians and the "plus one" seems to refer to vocalist Akira Fuse who had been a pop vocalist since the mid-60s, appearing on albums since 1967. Most of the musicians were obscure except for keyboard player Hiro Yanagida, who was a member of the highly-acclaimed Foodbrain and later Strawberry Path, whose album When The Raven Has Come To The Earth was released the same year as Love Will Make A Better You, and guitarist Kimio Mizutani who was in the band People that released the massively rare Ceremony -- Buddha Meet Rock. Love Live Life + Ones only record is a mix of blues-based psychedelia that pushes into progressive and even avant-garde realms at times, while the skronky sax-playing even recalls the edgier end of the jazz spectrum. An original, innovative and extremely rare piece of Japanese psychedelia.

Format: LP
Label: Phoenix

"Super Record, the second of Magical Power Makos 20-plus recordings, originally released in 1975, is considered by those that know to be his finest, combining as it does strong elements of Japanese folk music alongside innovative psychedelic sounds and broad musical vistas of extraordinary imagination. Mako was born in Shuzeni Izu in Japan in 1956, and he began his musical education at a young age, making his first public performance in 1973 at the age of 16 with his band Genge in the famous Shibuya Club. Based on these impressive public performances, the precocious Mako was invited to play with one of Japans foremost contemporary composers, Toru Takemitsu, playing alongside the composer on three film scores, Inheritance For The Future, Petrified Forest and Himiko. The response to his performances was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, elevating Mako to almost god-like status in his native country. Makos music has often baffled pundits keen to place him in a particular musical slot. As one perplexed scribe opined "Makos music possesses a certain strange kind of texture.

Artist: MAGICAL POWER MAKO
Title: Super Record
Format: CD
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Super Record, the second of Magical Power Makos 20-plus recordings, originally released in 1975, is considered by those that know to be his finest, combining as it does strong elements of Japanese folk music alongside innovative psychedelic sounds and broad musical vistas of extraordinary imagination. Mako was born in Shuzeni Izu in Japan in 1956, and he began his musical education at a young age, making his first public performance in 1973 at the age of 16 with his band Genge in the famous Shibuya Club. Based on these impressive public performances, the precocious Mako was invited to play with one of Japans foremost contemporary composers, Toru Takemitsu, playing alongside the composer on three film scores, Inheritance For The Future, Petrified Forest and Himiko. The response to his performances was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, elevating Mako to almost god-like status in his native country. Makos music has often baffled pundits keen to place him in a particular musical slot. As one perplexed scribe opined "Makos music possesses a certain strange kind of texture. It is certainly what they call rock, but contains elements we cant describe so succinctly. It clearly goes beyond the various genres of music and while full of them all, it sends forth a fierce glow." Another critic wrote: "Adding to the variety of folk music from India, Turkey and Russia, his mandolin or Taisho koto, and especially his marvellously-performed guitar, expresses fully the odor of the soil and mankinds universality."

Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"One of the innumerable bands to emerge from the post-Beatles Japanese tour of 1966 with Fab Four pretentions. The Mops were a Tokyo quintet led by drummer Mikiharu Suzuki who had cut his musical teeth in a Ventures-style combo in the previous spring. The line-up was augmented by the arrival of Suzukis older brother, Hiromitu, a lead vocalist with an Eric Burdon obsession who added hugely to the bands fuzzy garage soul sound. Not just a Merseyside homage turn, The Mops were a dedicated family whose love of garage rock and the nascent psychedelia would help them to create some of the most urgently deranged and musically disruptive music of the entire Group Sounds-era. Exit, a live recording, features in its entirety the bands 1974 last concert at Nakano San Plaza. Features the original LP artwork and includes the original Japanese insert. This is the first 180 gram vinyl reissue." - Phoenix.

Nobodys sure if the musicians on this recording ever performed as a group or whether Ceremony was simply a studio super-project. Certainly, guitarist Kimio Mizutani had already enjoyed a certain amount of critical exposure following stints with Love Live Life + One and Masahiko Satohs Sound Brakers, and it is Satohs jazzy fuzz guitar licks that help to lift this album to a higher level. Unfortunately, this was the ensembles only output, but this conceptual album is an absolute classic of hypnotic, psychedelic prog rock." - Phoenix.

2016 repress. "Former Beat Of The Earth leader Phil Pearlman assembled Relatively Clean Rivers in the early 70s and eventually recorded this excellent rural rock album in 1975. Although it should be easy to pigeonhole the sound of Relatively Clean Rivers, it is actually anything but. At times sounding like The Grateful Dead in all their American Beauty pomp, or CSNY circa Déjà Vu, this tight, richly talented ensemble produces an album of almost majestic quality. The sound is superb, and clearly no time or expense were spared to produce an album which is probably the most flawless snapshot of Californian 70s under ground music that you will ever here. Originally there were 2 pressings of this unique album, each of only 500 copies each, and this is the first time that this, or any of Pearlmans other recordings has been reissued. An album highly recommended to anyone even remotely interested in 70s West Coast music or simply top-notch music in general. Finally available on 180 gram vinyl once again, and comprehensively remastered using the latest 48-bit technology." - Phoenix. Full color gatefold sleeve. CD version also available.

"Reissue of this legendary album from 1970 featuring Hiro Yanagida, Kimio Mizutani, Mototeru Takagi. Number seven on the Japrocksampler Top 50. Divine excessive jazz-rock stylings by this batch of period-visionaries presumably recorded sometime in 1970 by Rudy Van Gelder and Creed Taylor at the Toshiba Records 1st Studio. All of that "real" psychedelic goo gets smeared about quite a bit; acoustic string flap AND electric gonzo-muff battle overdriven organ lines played by said Masahiko and his band of western pickups (Louis Haynes on drums, Jochen Staudt on bass). Furious jamming is meshed with some fine sub-George Russell 3rd-stream string/brass writhing and found-sound tape-spatter (machine guns, war-speak).

"One of the most tripped-out albums youll ever hear from Japanese keyboardist Masahiko Satoh, and thats saying a lot, considering some of his other avant sessions of the 70s! This ones from 1971 and a really free-form jam -- recorded so that each of the two long tunes takes up a side of the record apiece -- one with really full-on, frenzied noise courtesy of some ring modulators played by Satoh, undercut with some really heavy drums from Louis Hayes, a surprising entry for a session like this! Side two has a sound thats a bit more organic -- some spare percussion at first -- but the record then moves into noisier territory too, and even features some cool, scatting female vocals. Highly recommended! Numbered, limited edition housed in an LP replica sleeve. Digitally remastered. Sits at #7 on Julian Copes Japrocksampler Top 50 list." - Phoenix.

Title: Contact
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"180 gram vinyl pressing with a double-sided insert. This is a reissue of the second album Contact by 60s electronic legends Silver Apples, originally released by Kapp Records in 1969. This enigmatic duo, armed only with percussion, vocals and an early, specialized synthesizer, is often credited with giving the musical world its first electronic album, as well as having a significant influence on bands which followed in their wake; bands such as Ultravox and Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. Silver Apples, named after a W.B. Yeats poem, consisted of electronics wiz Simeon Coxe and percussionist Danny Taylor. Simeon built an impressive collection of electronic paraphernalia (dubbed the "Simeon") which ultimately included a dozen oscillators, six of them tuned to bass notes which he played with his feet, an assortment of sound filters, telegraph keys, radio parts, lab gear and a variety of second-hand electronic junk. Contact ushered in the bands recorded popularity and a national tour was quickly organized. Several tracks on Contact feature bass lines provided by Simeons banjo playing, but it is the clever use of the lead oscillator and new-found intensity of the lyrics that sets Contact apart from its predecessor. Such was the level of Simeons growing electronic proficiency that the intro to the albums opening track, "You And I" more than successfully recreates the sound of an airplane taking off. Silver Apples all but disappeared from the musical firmament when Kapp folded in 1970, only to re-emerge in January 1997 to perform before a celeb-packed audience at the Knitting Factory. Again, the critics were unanimous. As the MC waxed poetic during an introduction to the Silver Apples concert in San Francisco, 1968: "You are about to have probably the most unusual musical experience of your life. The music will enter areas of your mind never before opened until now. At times it may be hard to understand, but if you let the music penetrate, youll dig it." -Phoenix.

Title: Eve
Format: LP

Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Phoenix Records presents the first 180 gram virgin vinyl release of Speed, Glue & Shinkis 1971 debut album, Eve. Ex-Food Brain guitarist Shinki Chen, bass player Masayoshi Kabe (also known as M Glue) and Filipino Vietnam war veteran Joey "Pepe" Smith, who doubled as both the trios drummer and vocalist, released two legendary albums in the early 70s. Eve, the earlier of the bands two efforts, was probably the bands only "real" recording, as the self-titled second release in 1972 was put together by Smith from studio outtakes of Chens guitar playing and tracks omitted from Eve. This is a bluesy, psychedelic album, with Chens Hendrix-style guitar playing firmly underpinned by Smiths insistent percussion style modeled on the style and technique of his idol, Ginger Baker. The band dissolved immediately after the release of Eve, as the other two members found Smiths drug-fuelled lifestyle decidedly unappealing (he was a huge fan of amphetamines and diligently applied himself to establishing a prodigious habit). Chen decided he didnt want to record again, and became a successful live artist, Joey went back to the Philippines and started the immensely successful power trio Juan de la Cruz Band, and Masayoshi Kabe would win fame with the band Pink Cloud. In spite of their short-lived activity, Speed, Glue & Shinki were important first and foremost as pioneers of the Japanese psychedelic rock scene. Gatefold sleeve." - Phoenix.

Joey Smith decided that since he could he handle himself admirably on drums, it was time to challenge a new instrument, so he bought a synthesizer. Drafting in friend Mike Hanopol to take over the bass-playing duties from the departed Masayoshi "Glue" Kabe, Smith managed to produce an album of two halves, the first being some of the strongest SGS-esque material ever, the second being some fine electronic instrumentals in the Tangerine Dream mode. Following the release of the album, Smith and Hanopol flew back to Manila to become Filipino superstars, while Shinki Chen eschewed the recording of his music in preference to live recordings and Kabe found alternative employment in the highly popular band, Pink Cloud.
