Artist: RUSSELL/BERESFORD/EDWARDS/LIAVIK SOLBERG
Title: Will It Float?
Format: LP
Label: Va Fongool
Country: Norway
Price: $23.00
"The music on Will It Float? can best be described as classic British improvisation with an electro-acoustic twist. These are the major elements that run through the recording, creating a soundscape that is both challenging and engaging. The improvisations are freely made, without preparation, and are characterized by an extreme joy in playing and a desire to take chances while maintaining a firm focus on the groups identity. After playing in a successful duo with John Russell for a couple of years, Ståle Liavik Solberg decided to put together a quartet consisting of more musicians from the British improvisation scene. For him it was an easy choice to combine Russell with Steve Beresford and John Edwards, and Liavik Solberg arranged for the quartet to play at St. Marys Old Church in Stoke Newington, London. Once the idea had taken root for the concert it became obvious they were embarking on something special and the decision was taken to call in renowned recording engineer Dave Hunt to record the music. John Russell, Steve Beresford, and John Edwards have been a part of the free improvisation scene in England and Europe for several decades, and have played together in many different circumstances during this time. Ståle Liavik Solberg is an active free improviser in Norway and is, among other things, a director of the extensive concert series Blow Out! in Oslo. Fred Lonberg-Holm got the task of mixing and mastering the album and Kjetil Tangen made the great cover art. John Russell: guitar; Steve Beresford: objects and electronics; John Edwards: double bass; Ståle Liavik Solberg: drums and percussion." - Va Fongool.

Artist: POLICEBAND
Title: Stereo/Mono
Format: 7"
Label: Vacuum
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Policeband was a one-man act - the man being Boris, a New York City kid and a classically trained musician who picked up on performance art while studying and teaching at Cal Arts in the early 70s. Boris became Boris Policeband after a live performance in 1976 during which he monitored, on headphones, police communications from a scanner and recited their chatter while he accompanied himself on electric violin. Boris was fascinated by cop culture and the often prosaic and sometimes poetic reality of law enforcement. Over the next couple years the cop-talk and violin-screech coalesced into discrete songs. His live performances were extremely loud/edgy aggressive/dissonant, and even though most songs were under a minute long and a set rarely exceeded 10 minutes, Boris could quickly empty a room; and that was something he took pride in. The rooms he cleared included CBGBs, Maxs and the Mudd Club; as well as other venues like the Kitchen and Artists Space. Boris, a self-proclaimed Materialistic-Socialist and Antidisestablishmentotalitarian, was a character and downtown club fixture. His days were spent combing thought thrift and pawnshops for material to add to his collection of used books, sunglasses (which he was never seen without), and wristwatches. Every night he was in clubs where he leaned against a wall while listening to classical music with an ear plug on his transistor radio and bouncing his pink Spaulding off the walls and deftly catching it; all the while engaging in snappy repartee and/or swapping insults with passersby. Boris put Policeband down in the mid-80s to pursue his classical viola practice. His present whereabouts are unknown."- Dike Blair (liner notes from New York Noise. Vol. 3). Tracks from this were recently included on Soul Jazz Records New York Noise series (subtitled Music From The New York Underground 1979-1984). Original, unplayed copies of this 1979 single on artist Dike Blairs short-lived label. Restocked yet again.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Valord/DC
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
Last copies of this official reissue from 2004 of the first Index LP, originally released in 1967. All copies have a certain amount of edge-warp (as expected, I guess) and are sold as is. "Much has been written about this incredible band. Much of it isnt true. I want to set the record straight. Index was formed in the early spring of 1967 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. I was 18 years old when I met a chain-smoking 16-year-old named Gary Francis. Our conversation soon got around to rock and roll. He told me that he and his friend, John Ford, were forming a band. I told him that I played drums and we arranged a jam session at Johns home on Lakeshore Drive. Our first meeting was incredible. Our sound was full and powerful. Johns lead guitar techniques were fresh and innovative. After our first sessions we knew we had something special. Index was born. Soon we hit the local sock hop circuit, playing at high schools and teen clubs in the area. We poured our unique sound out at The Hideout, Undercroft and G.P. War Memorial every weekend. One afternoon John pulled out a new album he had been listening to. It was a new band with a mind-shattering sound called The Jimi Hendrix Experience. John played some songs he had written inspired by this psychedelic sound. Over the next few days, Fire Eyes, Shock Wave and Feedback were written. This album was recorded in December of 1967 at the Ford estate. It is recorded in mono sound with literally one microphone and with all instruments and vocals recorded at the same time. The cover photo is of Orpheus and Bacus, founders of a singing group John joined at Yale. The stiff, board-like figures seem to characterize the exact opposite of this musical collection. This reissue is taken from the original recordings. Nothing has been added and all songs are in their original length. Over the years various bootleg copies of this album have surfaced but this is the original work." -Jim Valice.

Artist: ANTORCHA
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $16.00
“A terrific early 70s Mexican psych-rock album from Antorcha which never saw release in its day. Previously known as Las Antorchas, under that moniker the group played beat and garage rock whereas this album showcases their transformation into a sonically rich and often heavy psych-rock band. Its a guitar-driven record sung in Spanish with lots of fuzz, wah, and some electric 12-string. The album also features some great psychedelic organ sounds and a Latin-flavored beat is occasionally thrown into the mix for good measure. The lyrics sometimes feature anarchist themes among other more typical psychedelic subjects (see: "Grass"). Great stuff and its particularly interesting hearing this back to back with their work as Las Antorchas. Check it out!” - Vam.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: VAM
Country: Mexico
Price: $18.00
"Official limited edition vinyl from the original masters, featuring incredible late 60s/early 70’s anarchistic acid/psych rock tracks with fuzz, organs and all around great vibe. After the split of Las Antorchas, Victor Motta Aviles and band mate Omar Cortes Gaviño teamed up with Victors brother Guillermo and continued as Antorcha. Along with Náhuatl and Toncho Pilatos, Antorcha were one of the few groups in Mexico that managed to break the influences of foreign bands—and government oppression—and find their own (demented) sound. In fact, Antorcha set out to cerate an anarchist awareness among young people in the era; they understood anarchy as “respect to youth, the right to free-thinking, and breaking political and religious taboos.” And the music—acid psychedelic rock, with intelligent use of fuzz guitar and a strong rhythm section. Greats stuff from start to finish—all originals—that we can easily rate as some of the best psych rock ever made in Mexico! This LP has all of the band’s EP and single tracks, plus one from their only album, which came out at the end of their career. Housed in nice gatefold cover, with liner notes, pictures, discography and poster insert." - VAM.

Artist: DECIBEL
Title: El Poeta Del Ruido
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $16.00
"Recorded in 1978, the instrumental El Poeta Del Ruido by Decibel could be labeled a prog album but dont expect it to sound anything like Yes! This is more in the spirit of Art Zoyd, Univers Zero, Henry Cow, Faust, and Gong, which is to say, quite experimental, a bit dark, complex, and generally highly-structured (though its also sometimes deliberately disjointed). Classical instruments form an important part of the groups sound, but it is augmented by interesting sound effects and there are extended moments of space-y electronic exploration. Masterfully executed, this album is a compelling listen from beginning to end. Tracks include "El Poeta del Ruido," "Orgón Patafísico," "El Fin de los Dodos," "Manatí," and "El Titosco" and more."

Artist: MOLITOR, REINHOLD
Title: Reinhold
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $19.00
"Official reissue of this ultra-rare album (Discos Zave LPL 163, 1969). Globe-trotting artist Bodo Molitor may have been born in Germany, but hell forever be associated with the psychedelic scene in Mexico and South America. In addition to creating the zoomorphic art for his own bizarre album, Hits Internacionales, he also created the psychedelic art for the Kaleidoscope album, for La Libre Expresion, and for his brother Reinholds solo album. He had this to say about the Reinhold record: My Brother Reinhold came for a visit from Germany where he was playing with several bands. He was only 19. I knew Edghar Zamudio (from Peru) and one day he asked us to record that LP. Just acoustic guitars and a banjo played brilliantly by my brother. I think we recorded the whole album in three or four days. I played some guitars and did some vocals as well. Its folky and bluesy with originals, some covers, and traditional. My brother sings and plays guitar and banjo, on some of the songs he wrote. The Reinhold album is so rare, even with the connection to his more famous artist brother, no one seems to have discovered it, until now. Despite being from the end of the 1960s, Reinhold has more of an early-60s NYC Greenwich Village cafe wha?-ish folk underpinning. The best tracks have gravel-pated vocals in a vaguely Tom Waits/Joseph Spence sort of vein -- really syrupy and quite excellent. Overall, a dark and morose vibe dominates; and we can all use some minor key laments, now and then, right? Limited editions (both formats) of only 500 copies." - Vam

Price: $23.00
"First time ever on LP, heres a collection of this Mexico City synth-pop/postpunk bands best tracks from the early 1980s. Made largely with 80s new wave dance clubs in mind, but with an urgency and directness straight from 70s punk rock plus a measure of postpunk darkness woven into the instrumentation, it comes out a bit like throwing SPIZZENGERY, DEPECHE MODE, CHROME, CABARET VOLTAIRE and FAD GADGET into a blender and turning it on high. About half the tracks are sung in Spanish, the other half in English (which comes off quite well since singer Illy Bleeding lived in Canada for several years previously). This is a very limited pressing of only 300 copies for the world, all on 160 gram red or purple color vinyl, and including a large, 2-sided, full color poster insert with brief liner notes in English and Spanish." -Vam.

Artist: SPECTRE FOLK
Title: Ancient Storm
Format: LP
Label: Vampire Blues
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Tireless Michigan-bred multi-instrumentalist (and parent) PETE NOLAN runs the Arbitrary Signs imprint, drums for MAGIK MARKERS and has written a childrens book and accompanying album-yet still has time and energy to lead SPECTRE FOLKs doleful, spiraling psychedelic drones. With drummer STEVE SHELLEY (SONIC YOUTH), AARON MULLAN (TALL FIRS) on bass and PETER MEEHAN on guitar, they churn out black seas of noise guitar, psych jams, no-fi experiments and other interplanetary gunk. The follow-up to their The Blackest Medicine, Vol. 2 EP (Woodsist), The Ancient Storm opens with a slow-burning ballad whose vibe is right out of If I Could Only Remember My Name, and ends with creepy heaviness that wouldnt be out of place on a Jandek record. In between, layered, psychedelic guitar work and the occasional electrified vibraphone overlay a mix of beefed-up psych-rock muscle and a more stripped-down, guy-in-a-bedroom sound. Hard to believe a group this murky can swing this hard, but such is the nature of 21st Century astral projection. Includes free download card with five bonus tracks." -Vampire Blues.

"Repro-reissue of this 1967 album on Vault, featuring Ry Cooder. Obscure but classic drug vibed Indian-based psychedelic sitar-led instrumentals w/ an early Beefheart flavor. CD reissue from the 90s is long unavailable. "Ry Cooders Ceyleib People are arguably one of the more innovative groups of the late 60s. Taking the loping blues romp of Captain Beefheart and filtering it through Indian music, the group created a very short album of two 10-11 minute parts. For 1967, this is definitely hippy experimental music, hopping from guitar riffs to sitar drones to mellotron rambling and back without regard for convention. Its almost as if there was an intent to fuse the influences of Ravi Shankar with those of the old blues legends, except that rarely is there any true juxtaposition of both styles, instead one will start out and then give way to another, segment by segment. Its as if someone gave a studio the masters for several Ravi Shankar and Captain Beefheart albums, asked them to splice them together, and then left, only to have the engineer play a joke by adding parts of Days of Future Passed in as well. Overall, its a pretty successful experiment especially considering its age. While this might not have been so impressive had it been from a few years later, its presence in 1967 is quite prescient." -Mike McLatchey

Title: Raskas Taakka

Country: Finland
Price: $20.00
"Raskas taakka (Heavy Load) is a four part moan dealing with death in the family. Extremely minimal and raw electronic pulses with deep nocturnal narrations and barely there death chants create a truly hallucinatory epitaph. It might be by far the most brutally personal statement from Veli-Matti Laja Aijala, the Finnish underground legend known for his work with groups such as Terveet Kadet, Billy Boys, The Sultans, Leo Bugariloves, Aavikon Kone ja Moottori etc." - Vauva. 2005 recordings.

Artist: ROSS, ALEXANDER
Title: Grandfather Paradox
Format: LP
Label: Vauva
Country: Finland
Price: $20.00
"Critically celebrated for his candy coated biomorphic abstractions, Alexander Ross equally visionary feats of sonic Surrealism have until now remained an insiders secret. Thanks to Kemialliset Ystavat and Tomutonttu mastermind Jan Anderzen, the resplendent oddness of Ross musical imagination is now finally available to be rolled around on the collective tongue of humanity once again via this vinyl reissue for his Vauva imprint. Originally issued as a cassette on the cult electronic label Generations Unlimited, this freak fringe tour de force from 1989 has its navigational coordinates governed by the kind of psychically dislocating dream logic more associated with Nurse With Wound. Across the epic suite that comprises these two album sides, Ross musical syntax pops with all manner of unexpected rhythmic and textural detailing. The friction and frisson generated by raking kernels of assorted organic ephemera from rolls of dice, clinks of ice or the rattle of bamboo wind chimes against the fur of his countervailing compositional gestures is responsible for generating a lot of the drama heard here. On the excerpt from Side A found below, they counterpoint foghorn-like trombone fanfares, ecstatic ethnological forgeries and welling tides of smeared orchestration." - Eric Lumbleau (of Mutant Sounds), Ad Hoc.

Artist: HOOKER, D.R.
Title: The Truth
Format: LP
Label: Veals & Geeks
Country: Belgium
Price: $23.00
“Genuine reissue of D.R. Hookers The Truth (1972) from the original audio sources; new analog transfer with improved mastering. "Its a miracle any copies of this privately pressed album survived -- but be thankful it did, for here is an individual vision. Some people worry about when well run out of oil. A rather smaller proportion of us worry about when well run out of discoverable, deep-end thrills like this. There is just no way in the world items like Donald Hookers 40-year-old privately pressed LP should even exist as a thing -- it more than likely only ran to about 99 copies in its original format, so how the hell did even one of those survive to create these new digital and analogue versions decades later? Connecticut-based Hooker -- a tall, slim hippy with a history of substance abuse -- was much given to wearing the sort of austere robe he sports on the sleeve, a fairly outré move even then. In early 1972 he hired a gang of local scene musicians to flesh out his wonderful songs and after a few brief rehearsals the band began recording. As soon as they were done they split -- some never even heard the finished album, and what a treat they missed. Hookers arrangements are truly beautiful; a simple, swinging pop song like Weather Girl exists somewhere between the Doors and Curtis Mayfield, whereas The Bible (If theyre knocking the Bible, be sure they are bent/ Just see and youll understand the book is heaven sent) has the propulsive drive of a pained George Harrison ballad crushed up against some of Neil Youngs freeform, string-banging joy. Then theres The Sea, with its rolling religious allegories and the remarkable Free which marries a growling hard rock throb to a vampirically groovy synth line. Hookers masterpiece is Forge Your Own Chains, which is part conga-led, lounge-funk soul and part, questing psychedelic dream. To think this entirely individual worldview would have once languished, unloved, in a series of under-the-racks cutout bins. And how much more magic like this is there out there?" --Rob Fitzpatrick, "The 101 strangest records on Spotify: DR Hooker -- The Truth," The Guardian, April 24, 2013.

Title: Wild Protest
Format: LP
Label: Vents Des Forets
Country: France
Price: $26.00
"Junko and Thomas Tilly present Wild Protest, produced by Emanuele Carcano for Vent des Forets Art Center in France. Each year, Pascal Yonet, director of the Art Center Vent des Forets, invites between six to eight artists to confront a natural forest environment and to create a unique work, more or less ephemeral. The project is born from the desire to bring together two sound artists, a brutiste performer and a field recorder, on a territory that still resounds with cries of two world wars. In July 2016, at Vent des Forets, Junko made a series of cries performances in the woods, wild bursts into the Meuse forest with the howling known from the Japanese noise scene. Out of words and meaning, pure expression of the body, its shrill cries are full of freedom and revolt. The sound of his voice rending sounds of the surrounding nature is recorded by Thomas Tilly, who distills this first sound material to compose a piece revealing an exceptional audio experience. Long time tracking in the forest and around it allowed Junko and Thomas to find the most relevant and surprising places for its outlets. Registration cries, Thomas could capture the immediate or distant sound environment which then forms the basis of its original composition. Each cry is geo-localized, the track list gives the GPS coordinates of each. The opening, which was held July 11, 2015, allowed 70 people to participate in a collective cry. Junko is a member of the cult group of the Japanese noise scene, Hijokaidan (group formed around the guitarist Jojo Hiroshige). Junko joined the group in 1982, participating in the development of an increasingly radical group. Thomas Tilly uses the microphone and speaker as key creative tools. His work is centered on the study of the sound environment and his confrontation with the space in which it exists."

Title: Beyond A Fever Pitch
Format: Double 7"/Frisbee
Label: Vertical
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"In its initial incarnation between 1989 and 1994, Squirmbo was the caffeine-addled fabrication of Hornraiser (Tony P), Jason the Unpopular (Jim S), Guttersnipe (Phil S) and Stygian (Mark S). The western Massachusetts collagists endured a deep esteem for the hypnotic pastels and unholy mersh of Steinski, Prince Paul, Nurse with Wound, Ghédalia Tazartès, RRRecords, Christian Marclay, Sentridoh, Gum and William Burroughs cut ups. They also spent 1001 sleepless nights ingesting the stuzzadelik detritus of the previous 80 years, including and especially Fletcher Henderson and Tav Falco’s Panther Burns. Along with Bushwick V (Mark V), the five chums simultaneously established and maintained Vertical Records between 1989 and 1994 (which is poorly represented in the digital realm at present and should not be confused with the multitude of other Vertical Records, then or now). Vert issued seismic crunk from Cop Shoot Cop, Sebadoh, Royal Trux, Suckdog, Merzbow, Jason Loewenstein’s Sparkalepsy (or Heather’s Overbite, opinions vary), Caroliner and eventually Squirmbo and related deformities The Fuck Orchestra, Doña Velasquez & The Gag Reflex and BLBAF. Approbation for Squirmbo from the fanzine masses of the time - including a centerpiece in Bananafish - bewildered the group, who were nevertheless delighted and showed it to their parents. Tragically, our brother Mark S returned to dust in a final selfless gesture in 1994, thereby ending Squirmbo and Vertical Records and drawing the so called “classic era��? to a close. The remaining three Squirmbo members, again with Mark V, burrowed deep underground, only to emerge years later cloaked as professional normals who enthusiastically pay their taxes and quote Seinfeld episodes to the satisfaction of their urbane colleagues. The exception is Jim S, who publically resurrected Squirmbo in 2008 in a series of euphorically skunked videos available to all." -Vertical. "Special" edition packaged in a frisbee.

Artist: JACKIE-O MOTHERFUCKER
Title: Freedomland
Format: CD
Label: Very Friendly
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"This is a collection of live-recorded improvised material by Portland, Oregons Jackie-O Motherfucker. Compiled by founding member Tom Greenwood, this music captures the sound of a reconfigured Jackie-O during the late summer of 2006, with vocalist Eva Salens (Inca Ore), Tom Greenwood, Danny Sasaki, and Nick Bindeman. Their first stop was at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, where the group were scheduled for their first appearance supporting the Dirty Three. There they would begin -- unrehearsed in this formation, and in front of a large audience. The plans to perform material from their newest release Flags of the Sacred Harp were scrapped, and the band launched into a free-form set of improvised, trance-inducing, punk-inspired, psychedelic rock, which became the framework of the new music they would develop together over the next few years. Freedomland is the document of this trip through America. The record consists of location recordings, captured live, and mastered in the United Kingdom. The songs were created from the spirit of improvisation, and honed by performing nightly in dive bars, music halls, and art galleries across America. Salens vocal delivery is raw and honest, the words flow from conversations, to streams-of-sub-conscious conjuring, and prayer. Guitars alternately soar into cloud-scapes, and battle like free-jazz saxophones, propelling the group into new terrain nightly, while the percussion of Danny Sasaki alternates between exploratory and dead-solid motoric. The collection was edited by Tom Greenwood, from dozens of live recordings, and captures a rare moment in the bands long and confusing history. As Greenwood himself describes, this is "truly the music of everyday life -- birthed each night in a new form, from musicians who put great faith in each other, under awesome strain at times, to project modern music, with soul."-Very Friendly

Another psychic gangbang from New Englands finest fever dream peddlers. This record contains futuristic meditations on some proto-gypsy ritual from the distant past & hyper-realistic abstractions tailor made for the absurdity of human interaction as it has come to be recognized in the present day. Complexion, unlike other Sunburned records, promises invisible skin for the faces between your ears and transcendental pulse options for the curiously minded purveyors of a young millennium. Once again the have-nots trump the haves with even deeper proclamations of emancipation and Complexion penetrates far below the surface, opening the pores, smoothing every wrinkle & gently guiding the crows feet closer to oblivion. Complexion is beautifully wrapped in the visionary artwork of Mr. John Jagel whose work also includes the album cover to John Coltranes Ole Coltrane and Ornette Colemans Ornette LP." - Very Friendly.

"The highly-anticipated second album from VINCENT DE ROGUIN (SHORA), STEPHEN OMALLEY (SUNN0))), KTL), and DANIEL OSULLIVAN (GUAPO). Like their genre confounding debut Deep In Ocean Sunk the Lamp of Light, Betimes is an atmospheric, constantly changing piece that encompasses a mind-boggling array of different performance and processing techniques. The deeply psychedelic and moving results present a soundstage that is continually evolving, with new elements entering and leaving the fray every couple of seconds. Includes significant contributions from free percussionists NICOLAS FIELD and ALEX BABEL, who sprinkle the sound field with an almost FMP-style rush of splattering drum sound, raising the intensity of the music (without resorting to bashing). The album also features a brief but affecting vocal from ULVER mastermind KRISTOFFER RYGG, who will make his first live appearance in over a decade when AETHENOR plays the Roadburn Festival in April 2008. Aethenors third LP, featuring vocals and lyrics by David Tibet, will be released in Autumn 2008." -VHF

"The debut release from the trio of STEPHEN OMALLEY (SUNN0))))), DANIEL OSULLIVAN (GUAPO), and VINCENT DE ROGUIN (SHORA). Taking its title from The Iliad, the music is deep, cosmic, and equally epic, completely unlike anything youd expect from three such heavyweights. More in the tradition of Nurse With Wounds Spiral Insana or Klaus Schulzes Cyborg than any contemporary trend, the tracks float along in a masterful collage of activity, where careful scene changes highlight OSullivans classic but artfully placed Rhodes bombs, De Roguins organ, and OMalleys guitar. Extraordinary effort has gone into editing, mastering, and shaping these pieces-they are not tossed off improvisations or "side-project" orphans. Housed in beautiful, custom jackets hand-printed by ALAN SHERRY of SIWA."

Title: En Form For Bla
Format: Double LP
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"AETHENOR is comprised of STEPHEN OMALLEY (SUNN0))), KTL), DANIEL OSULLIVAN (ULVER, MOTHLITE, GUAPO), KRISTOFFER RYGG (ULVER) and STEVE NOBLE (N.E.W., COMPANY, etc.). En Form For Bla documents the continued evolution of this unlikely collective, a collision of players from various avant, improv, metal, and "other" threads who together make a unique and arresting sound. Documenting three gigs in Oslo recorded in 2010, the album is deep and weird, with liquid sounds juddering around the occasionally identifiable percussion or Rhodes motif. In the evolution from a side project / studio group to a frequently working live act, Aethenor kept their sound intact, taking the musique-concrete-style transitions and "whats that sound" ethos of their three previous efforts directly to the stage. Noble, having spent a couple of decades playing drums with Derek Bailey and other well-known UK improvisers, moves the music along subtly, keeping much of the focus on the burbling sound mass. OMalleys guitar, an instrument of extreme viscera in Sunn0))), is used with restraint, providing occasional low menace but mostly mixing it up with OSullivans thematic lines and Ryggs sound treatments. The overall effect is atmospheric rather than sedate-something like a modern, small group version of Miles Davis classic "He Loved Him Madly" or Nurse with Wounds Spiral Insana. Other than perhaps Supersilent, no one else is working this sonic vocabulary today. Designed by OMalley, the deluxe double-LP version is pressed on white vinyl and packaged with printed inner sleeves; the CD is in a card folio. Live dates planned to follow albums release." -VHF.

Together they bring their considerable pedigrees into play with unexpected and original results. Contradicting expectations of a massive blow-out of sound, everyone plays with remarkable, effective restraint. Atmospheric and layered, this latest release features bits and pieces of identifiable rock-moves peeking out from under a thick blanket of hard-to-identify drift. Based on live recordings made on a lengthy tour of Italy in 2010, Hazel has been extensively edited and supplemented, but without losing the elemental sound of a group playing live together. Though theres plenty of weird ambient sound to be heard, this isnt a sound- effects/pedalboard record. Like the previous En Form for Bla, Nobles drums anchor the music with spare and considered playing, sometimes lashing out with abstract punctuation, and other times laying out a Can-like groove. OMalleys guitar is also restrained, providing a bed for OSullivans constantly morphing Rhodes, synths and electronic effects. Kristoffer Rygg contributes a rousing vocal incantation to Ermanna and peppers the mix with ghostly modular details. Æthenors catalog continues to be not like anything else out there right now. Sleeve designed by Stephen OMalley." - VHF.

"This first-ever VHF release by the 21-years-running Ashtray Navigations brings one more core piece of the UK freakout underground back to the mothership. With a discography that boggles even the most ardent Discogs user and an on-point WTF graphic sensibility, Ash Nav fits perfectly into the extremely fertile and prolific scene that has produced titans like Sunroof! and Vibracathedral Orchestra. On this generous 100-minute package, Phil Todd and Melanie ODubshlaine essay a kind of guitarand- electronics exotica with burbling rhythms, Heldonlike laser guitar leads, field recordings, synth racket, etc. The totally fun take on Les Baxters all-time classic "Quiet Village" (here wittily retitled "Quite Village") is a good example of the explorer spirit at work. Considering the amount of unhinged psychedelic fuzzwah lead damage laid out across this thing, its arguably the most effusive guitar heroics record of the genre, hopefully inspiring a new generation of young rockers out there to get on the bus." - VHF.

The CD is split roughly in half between Harmonia/Voigt-style chuggers and sweeping swirls of instantly recognizable dronage, familiar to fans of Campbells extensive contributions to VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA, SUNROOF! and others. His interest in techno comes out on "Caustic Roe" and "Muscle Adductor," which neatly compile the influence of recent minimal jam innovations with piles of synth and effects noise, lending the beat-driven tracks a rough, unfussy style. Other cuts like "Muegik Churn" and "Pilgrim Sunburst" swell with twittering electric birdsong and synthetic rain, the trademark sound of many Astral titles. Octuplex is full up with collaborator cameos, including the familiar (RICHARD YOUNGS, JOHN CLYDE-EVANS), and the novel (SPIDER STACY from THE POGUES!)." -VHF

Campbell and TIRATH SINGH NIRMALA have radically re-worked these tracks to be unrecognizable from their original CDR issues, but they are instantly recognizable as part of the unrelenting Astral Social Club rainbow stream." - VHF.

Quiet since 2007s blistering Panzer Division Lou Reed, the group delivers a more introspective set here, reaching back to the fuzzy, spacey sounds of releases like the epic double-CD Bliss. Among the drifting sonic washes, theres the crude, Dead C-like riffing of "Lions + Peonies" and the lock-grooved tremolo of "Son of the Blue Wolf" (referencing previous triumphs like Cloudz).  Bower says: "I have a problem with the term psychedelia [and its] negative associations of a hippie falseness. Nevertheless, my arte is, I know, deeply psychedelic in a true sense, a kind of synaesthesisia, a scrambling, an overload that seeks Samadhi in its primal gush, that will reconnect one with the all, or rather, a black psychedelia, substituting the elective current, for all...." In addition to the all-new tracks on the LP, the package also includes a bonus CD featuring a Bower-curated overview of his work. Many of the tracks on the 75-min Zebra Blood CD are from scarce or out-of-print recordings, including "Austrian Shade" from an impossible-to-find TOTAL seven-inch. Also included is the epic and exclusive new track "Spirit Animal Danzig."  Includes a bonus CD with scarce and out-of-print material from various Bower projects, plus one new track." -VHF.

"The Four Aims is the much-anticipated second full-length by the long-running duo of MICK FLOWER (VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA, SUNROOF, MICHAEL FLOWER BAND) and CHRIS CORSANO (FLAHERTY/CORSANO, JANDEK, BJORK, SUNBURNED). In the couple years since their debut, The Radiant Mirror (Textile), the two have toured and recorded frequently, expanding their range to include a mind-boggling array of free sound. "I, Brute Force" kicks off the record with the electrifying sound of Flowers virtuosic, heavily amplified Japan Banjo (also known as a Shaahi Baaja) over Corsanos free-wheeling percussion. Other tracks show off subtle improv moves, with both players using extended techniques to generate a wide range of unusual sounds. Corsanos technical mastery is almost without peer in his generation (Alex Neilson, maybe)-his ability to take the lessons of nearly five decades of free playing and extend them into new ranges is startling and exciting. Rather than play backup, Corsano meets Flowers strings and organ head-on with his own drum-bowing, cello, and circular-breathing-fired melodica." - VHF

Taking cues from classics of the genre like Tangerine Dreams Phaedra and Steve Hillages Rainbow Dome Musick, "Dos Nurages" is the albums centerpiece, a 41-minute hypnotic epic, with echoplexd guitar anchoring a stream of expertly done glissando.

Kensington Blues is Jacks most diverse outing by far, with straight ragtime, heavy 12-string, and that sweet, sweet Weissenborn lap guitar all checking in. Honed during endless touring in 2004, the repertoire here is delivered with maximum authority in a series of first-take performances recorded in early 2005. Cathedral et Chartres and Calais to Dover are dense, brooding 12 string numbers, recalling the key tracks on 2004s Raag Manifestos CD. Calais features a sequence of right hand picking furious enough to evoke a dream state ala Charlemagne Palestines Strumming Music. Rappahanock River Rag and Flirtin With the Undertaker are pure syncopated ragtime, while Kensington Blues offers an almost regal take on the intersection of Anglo and American trad. The epic Now That Im A Man Full Grown was the signature piece of many of 2004s live shows, a display of mind-boggling slide invention that straddles the line of east and west ala Yaman Blues from the Opium Musick LP. In something of a surprise inclusion, Jacks take on Faheys Sunflower River Blues (long a staple of Pelt and J.R. gigs but never included on a record) is subtle and expressive, with a wonderful rise and fall that perfectly accentuates Faheys beautiful melody."- VHF

"Recorded together and originally conceived as a double-CD back in the dark ages of 1995, Carved Into Roses and Infinityland find the transitioning from the heavy riffs of SKULLFLOWERs early days to a more free-form sound that continues to drive MATTHEW BOWERs many guises (TOTAL, SUNROOF!, HOTOTOGISU, MIRAG, etc.) to this day. The revamped lineup of Bower, STUART DENNISON, RUSSELL SMITH (of UK scuzz legend TERMINAL CHEESECAKE) and PHILLIP BEST whacks away at both styles simultaneously, with lumbering hooks meeting rainbows of coruscating feedback. Both records start with lengthy, two-chord modal jams, anchored by the guest organ of SIMON WICKHAM-SMITH. The Singles disc collects both sides (over 50 minutes) of the four 7-inch records that were released around the same time and made largely by the same lineup. Not exactly a "singles band," Skullflower nevertheless has more than a dozen releases on the format. The alternate take on "White Fang" is even more jagged and crackling than the one on Infinityland. "Choady Foster" and "Spent Force" are huge pools of sound. Among these more straightforward tunes are oddities like the live version of "Metallurgical King," and the two sides of the Village Sorting single, a studio recording featuring TIM HODGKINSON (HENRY COW, THE WORK) blowing the roof of the place on alto." -VHF.

"The atmosphere of this somewhat delayed yet unstoppable annual collection from long-in-the-tooth UK vibe maestro Matthew Bower and friends (who include Neil Campbell, Rosalie Bower, and maybe some other people - honestly, who can tell?) is mostly spaced and buzzing instruments and voices hovering and floating in the dense mix, all running together like some sort of alien shortwave broadcast. Disc 1 takes off from where last years Found Star Sound left us - a mix of fuzzy guitar and organ rhythms jousting with voice, bowed strings, and unidentifiable percussion in a compressed fog. Disc 2 is a headlong rush into newish territory, with analog synth vs. birdsong, childs voice vs. sawing violin, chug vs. fizz, etc. There are many tracks on both discs that have subtle (and overt) melodic and rhythmic undercurrents suggesting a fuzz/hiss-dominated alternate-universe version of say, Harmonia or Richter Band.

"Beneath the usual lovely psychedelic artwork on the cover of Panzer Division Lou Reed lurks SUNROOF!s most explosive and assaultive record ever. The key track here in the Sunroof! evolution is the opener "Slew Plateaus #1," with MICK FLOWER (VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA) on guitar and JOHN MOLONEY (SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN) on drums. This live shot of electricity gradually ramps up from Flower and MATT BOWERs dueling guitars to the point where Moloneys drums come crashing in after about six minutes, leading to a furious crescendo that lasts for the remainder of the 19-minute track. "Slew Plateaus #2" is a lengthy collaboration with underground gadabout MATTIN, whose previous collabs with Tony Conrad, Bruce Russell, Eddie Prevost, et al. hopefully prepared him for the Bower wrecking ball delivered here. The other two cuts are absolutely blistering demolition work, which, in spite of their visceral impact, reach a state of zen-like stasis after a couple of minutes, a la the best of Bowers work with HOTOTOGISU." - VHF.

The tracks here represent the joyous, celebratory side of VCO - all forward motion, massed strings, percussion, horns, and little instruments rocketing forward in a swirl of sound. Compared to the more austere sounds of recent CDs like Lino Hi and Versatile Arab Chord Chart, the tracks here take off from the spot where the loose hippie-chant-and-drum action of collectives like Amon Düül intersects with the polyglot instrumental approach of mid-60s Sun Ra (ref. "Exotic Forest," "Shadow World," etc).

Slightly reorganized around a line-up of stalwarts MICK FLOWER and ADAM DAVENPORT with frequent collaborators JOHN GODBERT (TOTAL) and JOHN MOLONEY (SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN), the band here stretches way, way out over these six sides. Joka Baya offers up a set of shorter pieces on the A-side in a high-fidelity style that contrasts the dark, smoky sound of the rest of the tracks. The percussive grooves are overlaid with SUNROOF!!-like shimmer, stabbing electric leads, gentle acoustic rain, and droning organ peeking through at opportune moments. The roaring side-long epic on the flip is a droning, phasing slice of psychedelia with Moloneys drums battering the tape in between long stretches of humming stasis."

Recorded live using a binaural head system, the sound is nicely ragged in a you-are-there way, with scouring guitars and bleeping electronics riding atop the bands signature grooves. As with some of the bands other records, theres more than a hint of the early Velvet Underground spirit in these ten tracks.

"VHF presents a public service reissue of this impossibly rare and choice title in the VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA oeuvre, originally issued by the band in 2004 in an edition of 250. Featuring the "classic" lineup (MICK FLOWER, NEIL CAMPBELL, BRIDGET HAYDEN, ADAM DAVENPORT, JULIAN BRADLEY) that made Queen of Guess and Dabbling With Gravity and Who You Are, this self-titled double takes a wild ride through the inner-workings of VCOs stream of consciousness. Many of the tracks (selected from research and development jams) cut in abruptly, continuing the informal, expansive vibe of the bands other self-released items. The thick blanket of signature drone-fog is never far away, anchoring tunes that veer from early Velvets-style rock jammers ("Thrift") to swirling electronic mystery ("Clear"). On side three, "Gist" builds up a looping, guitar-led rhythm like a lost AR & Machines track, sharing the same side with the pulsing "Floetz," which rides a taut electro-pulse bolstered by group small percussion. This lengthy two-disc album concludes with the almost side-long "Minkey," featuring the full complement of VCO sound signatures in one big, hallucinatory swirl. Exclusive to this release is a 35-minute DVD of three live performances selected by Flower. A rare chance to see some cinema verite of the group in action, the performances here (shot in the UK in 2005 and 2007) are all on the rocking side, with furious drumming and guitar strangling. Perhaps best of all is Flower and Campbells optional audio commentary track (!) on "Wisdom T," providing some insight on the how and why (and some witticisms, too)." -VHF.

The sound is dark and rough, almost Xpressway-like in its claustrophobic atmosphere. The percolating krautrock stylings of "If You Cant Smoke Em" chugs along hypnotically for over 13 minutes to close out the side.

Led by Campbells sawing violin, the group builds up arcs of lingering overtones beneath an undercurrent of melody. They cut the drones in their life with extremely effective bursts of near rock, in a style reminiscent of the pre-Nico Velvet Underground (circa 1966 or so). The bands combination of clattering percussion, droning strings, and considerable sense of where to put the "groove" makes them unique among their peers.

The seven tracks on Wisdom are the VCOs most rocking dispatch ever, neatly combining the Ra-like collage of tracks like "Wisdom Thunderbolt" with the insistent pulsing jams of "A Natural Fact" and "Order of the Broad Eraser." "Ochre Dust" and "Rainbow Whirlwind" are more in the old-school VCO thick-blanket of sound, with tuned-percussion melody peeking out from the fog.

The set includes the first new vinyl from the pair in almost 15 years, plus three other projects (presented here on CD) that were all completed and intended for release by the duo in the 90s, but fell by the wayside for various reasons. 20 Years, the newly recorded LP, is one of the heaviest, most uncompromising records of the duos long career. It consists of eight electro-acoustic reworkings of their first (unreleased) recording from 1987, and is a blistering set of tracks as wild and weird as anything theyve ever done. The SMIRR CD features four epic instrumentals in the vein of classics such as LAKE and Asthma and Diabetes, flowing with extended grandeur, mixing drone and eccentric instrumentation in the duos immediately identifiable style. Songphases ten simple, lovely tunes are a reminder of their considerable "trad" songwriting and performing prowess. While Youngs has worked in this style on his solo efforts, hearing Wickham-Smith match him track for track is a revelation. "Dream Song" is among the formers most moving pieces. Finally, LIVE!!! is a head-scratcher of an album, recorded live in-studio in full-on Dadaist style--extended clavinet mania, Casio jams and plenty of outre expression. This set is packaged in a gatefold jacket with essays by DAVID KEENAN, NEIL CAMPBELL, MARC MASTERS and JON DALE and an extended interview with Youngs and Wickham-Smith. The CDs are housed in a custom-bindered insert in the pocket opposite the LP, with each disc held snug in its own die-cut pocket, and the audiophile-quality LP was cut by JOHN GOLDEN." -VHF

"This epic double set combines an LP of all-electric rock mayhem with a CD of subtle drum/shakuhachi tracks. Electric Lotus is the YOUNGS and NEILSONs self-proclaimed "rock" album, and it is a mind-boggling clutch of guitar/bass/drums demolition. Coming off like an amphetamine-fueled Guru Guru, the music tumbles out in a crazy quilt of stun-level attack zonage, especially on the side-long "Electric Lotus." Neilsons staggering free-drumming hits a new peak here, stepping beyond his laudable work with Jandek, Bonnie Prince Billy, etc., into new realms. Youngs lights it up with raging guitar and bass action, including some deeply psychedelic leads and heavy riffing. Lotus Edition is a companion CD of restrained and completely live duos for drums and shakuhachi. A couple of the tracks feature the kind of long notes, bowed cymbals, and other droneage heard on previous releases like Partick Rain Dance, but in a stripped down live setting." - VHF

"Someday, the meeting that occurred between these two guitarists will be legendary. For now, its only available on the archaic 12" LP format. Matthew Bower has been carving great big swaths of sound into the collective unconscious of hundreds of young people for over a decade. His work with Skullflower, Total, Sunroof!, etc ranks as some of the most memorable and durable (not to mention enjoyable) of the "noise" era. Richard, on his own and with assorted collaborators, has been busy issuing creative and personal missives from a practically unknown and unexplored corner of the universe of sound. The music on this thing is two side long tracks for electric guitars. "Site" bakes the listener with radioactive waves of high pitched and droning feedback. After a few minutes, a zen like peace emerges from the noise, causing the listener to fall into a deep trance which induces thoughts of flowers and birds and peace and stuff. "Realm" works a slightly less dense tangent on the two guitars as atom-splitters formular, but still manages to throw off all sorts of sparks. As if all of that bragging about the music wasnt enough, the record comes housed in a beautiful fold-out jacket, lovingly hand screened and assembled by Charlestown MAs Kristin Anderson.

The title no doubt a nod to the odd resemblance of seven-year-old Rosalie Bowers cover art to another LP of the same title, this Relayer throws out the live methodology of the earlier LP for a dense set of layered studio recordings. Like the music of Matthew Bowers Sunroof! group, the tracks are rainbows of colors and textures with string drone, percussion, bleeps, and the unidentifiable, competing in a mix devoid of the traditional lead with backing schema. Many tracks have the kind of welcoming electronic bed seldom heard since the demise of Harmonia, with ring-modulated fuzz bleeping away over a chugging, but non-oppressive beat." - VHF.

"After releasing one album as a quintet (Up In Arms), Juan Dela Cruz (the Filipino equivalent of John Doe - a band name, not a band member!) soon downsized to a power trio and recorded their next studio album Himig Natin in 1973, featuring their classic line-up of guitarist Wally Gonzalez, drummer/growler Joey Pepe Smith (fresh from a stint in the equally-OTT Speed, Glue, & Shinki) and Mike Hanopol on bass. The title track (translation: Our Music) would become an anthem for the national Pinoy rock scene (I wrote it in the toilet, twenty minutes before going onstage. I was on acid at the time... -Pepe) and, via tracks such as Take You Home and Shake Your Brains, one can be assured that getting laid and getting wasted are truly universal pursuits!"

Purifying noise annihilating nationalities and differences. Noise inviting us to a fabulous sonic orgy where energy will reign over precision of execution, where violence is sublimated through strings, reeds and skins, where artistic research consists in destroying over and over what one has managed to build, in order to reinvent it. Two sax players, two guitar players, an electronics player, a singer and a drummer, all working hard to convince you that noise can be a lot more than noise, but exists mostly for making some noise!" --François Couture

As they come from all walks of life, some members of the band have jobs that are far apart from the artistic field, which makes Geinoh Yamashirogumi unique in its kind. It has also been noted for being able to perform different pieces of traditional music from all over the world, while mastering at the same time state-of-the-art technologies available to musicians, and in particular the MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) protocol. Symphonic Suite Akira is no doubt the bands most famous work, owing to the global success of the manga, followed by Katsuhiro Otomos animated film adaptation. Released in 1988, this soundtrack is the second part of a mysterious trilogy, Ecophony Rinne being its first part released in 1986, and Ecophony Gaia its second part released in 1990.

Country: Italy
Price: $33.00
“Les Rallizes Dénudés are one of the earliest and most revolutionary Japanese psychedelic rock bands, and existed off and on through four decades. The band formed in November of 1967 at Kyoto University, inspired by Exploding Plastic Inevitable-era Velvet Underground as well as the over-amplified rock of Blue Cheer and Mario Schifanos avant-garde ensemble Le Stelle. By 1968 they were gigging live and even began a regular collaboration with an avant-garde theater troupe, which ended the next year because of Les Rallizes penchant for extreme volume. Not only did they use massive amounts of feedback at loud volumes, their stage shows used strobe lights, mirror balls, and other effects for a live experience that was a total sensory assault. This historic performance recorded in Tachikawa in 1977 is perhaps the most beloved document of the bands sound: extreme feedback and distressed guitar with detached vocals laid over languid rhythms -- unbelievable in intensity.” - Victory.

Title: Pianology
Format: LP
Label: Victory

Price: $25.00
“Masahiko Satohs fourth album is a duet with German pianist and composer Wolfgang Dauner. Dauner is one of the very early European avant-garde jazz pianists, and he recorded the first free jazz album in Germany back in 1964. Dauner played with Eberhard Weber and Jean-Luc Ponty, and in the late 60s, he experimented with choral music. Being a passionate innovator and experimenter, in 1970 he discovered electronic devices and started using them in his music. He experimented with ring-modulated Hohner clavinets and pianos and recorded several albums for ECM. During his Japanese tour in spring 1971, he met one of the most advanced Japanese pianists of that time, Masahiko Satoh. The five compositions on this album were recorded in Tokyo in March 1971, but were not released until that autumn. Its interesting that a few months later, Masahiko Satoh will record and release his best-known, and in some sense, legendary album, Amalgamation (ASH 3040CD) -- an eclectic mix of musical genres and sounds that was probably influenced by his earlier collaboration with Dauner. Pianology, released soon after Amalgamation, wasnt as strong in comparison, and stayed in its shade for decades. Pianology is a collection of freeform classical and jazz piano duo improvs, spiced with ring modulator sounds. Includes printed inner sleeve.” - Victory.

Blatchley performs in the band Mountain Home with Marissa Nadler and Greg Weeks of Espers.), Mark McGuire, who plays guitar in Cleveland drone heroes Emeralds, and session-man, indie rock legend Chris Brokaw, who played in bands such as Codeine, Come, The New Year, Pullman, and the New Wave Bandits and many others. The series will be released on high quality LP with letterpressed sleeves, each with a picture of the guitar used to record the albums. Track-by-track liner notes will also be included. ⿿The idea behind VDSQ was really to create a label that was a nod to the great guitar-oriented labels like Takoma and Transatlantic but focusing on contemporary artists rather than reissues,⿝ said Lowenthal. ⿿I tried to curate a series that transcended genre and really pull together some exceptional musicians from different geographic and musical scenes. The goal is to hopefully bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary styles of music all within the context of acoustic guitar music. The process of each edition of the series is such that it really lets the personality of the player come to the forefront so each record really reflects the essence of the personality of the players. The first run is 500 of each LP" - Vin Du Select Qualitite.

"Among the more revelatory contemporary guitarists, Mullanes new album is a further progression in terms of technique, composition and performance.

Hut Variations is available in an edition of 500 copies with a heavy stock, spot-gloss jacket. The titular interest in Huts is an outgrowth of my thoughts on solo instrument playing and its relationship to the conflicted spatial and social impacts of separation, of the one with the whole. I came to this (after many years of playing guitar soli with little conceptual undergirding) in reading so-called hermit poetry alongside more recent theories of huts, capsules, bubbles and a plethora of other single occupancy spaces. Living and playing guitar in variously isolated modes, I was attracted to the conflicts of productive separation and incorporated them into my playing. The idea has followed me and has inflected much of my recorded output. This new album, Hut Variations, is the result of four years worth of composition and recording. Each piece written and recorded in a different location, a different hut. - Matthew Mullane.

Format: LP

Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"In the spring of 1984, Jeff Kelly and I had our jam room set up in the attic of my parents house in West Seattle. Jeffs girlfriend had just left him and he was sick with the pain, certain he had just lost the one love of his life. We jammed a lot that spring, since making noise seemed to take Jeffs mind off his depression. The two of us would usually alternate playing drums and guitar, or, when we had a drummer over, Jeff and I would play guitar and bass respectively. One evening our friend Karl Wilhelm happened to be sitting in the drummers seat. I chanced to record the session on a ghetto blaster. I thought it was a pretty good jam, but the next day as I listened to the tape, the long hook-filled guitar solos and simple yet emotional ad lib lyrics about the pain of lost love seemed to be a mandate from above. I played the tape for Jeff and had no trouble convincing him that we should start a recording project and put out a cassette. A serious band would do him good and put to use the creativity that poured from his heartache. The name Green Pajamas came from the song of the same name that Jeff had written a few months earlier. This optimistic anthem seemed a fitting name for the band. The title Summer of Lust came from the turn Jeffs love life had to take, since true love had deserted him, and the fact that he and I both lusted after a date-book full of young women that spring/summer. We began recording using Jeffs Teac 4-track reel-to-reel. Basic tracks (drums, bass, and guitar) were recorded in my attic using one microphone placed in the center of the room. Over-dubs and mixing were done in Jeffs bedroom at his parents house, where he had spent years recording songs he wrote. We decided to include "Anna Maria" and "Lost in a World," two songs that we had recorded there the previous winter. We spent the next week mixing, and the recording was done. The next day we found a tape duplicator through the yellow pages and Summer of Lust was officially released on July 14, 1984, with a first run of 25 cassettes. By that evening, they were available at our favorite record store. And that is my story of the making of the Summer of Lust and the conception of The Green Pajamas. About four months later I got a phone call from a man named Tom Dyer. He had just bought a copy of our tape and was writing a review of it for Option magazine. He also mentioned that he ran Green Monkey Records and had an 8-track studio in his basement. The rest is recorded history." --Joe Ross.

Title: S/T
Format: LP

Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"A recording of disarming delicacy, the only album by Pic Nic was released by the Hispavox label in the hazy year of 1968 after the short, one-year life of the five-piece, and it featured an innocent and touching cover which immediately invited people to find out what was behind it. The formation of the group began in 1966 Barcelona after the split of Brenners Folk, a short-lived band created by the Venezuelan musician Vytas Brenner. They included most of the original members of what later would become Pic Nic, mainly guitarist Toti Soler, then 17, Jordi Sabatés and, of course, Jeanette. The rest of Pic Nics line-up was completed by Isidoro "Doro" de Montaberry and Mexican Mario Alfonso "Al" Cárdenas. Jeanette (real name Janette Anne Dimech, born in London in 1951) was a child of the diaspora; her mother was from the Canary Islands and her father from the former Belgian Congo. From her native England the family had moved to the United States, where she would remain until she arrived in Barcelona as a 14-year-old, her tender voice carrying the echoes of Californian folk-rock. Rafael Turia, a radio man and neat interpreter of Donovan songs in Spanish for Discos Belter, introduced them to the Hispavox label. Their official story starts after their meeting with the Madrid record company. Producer Rafael Trabucchelli got involved and that was it. He changed their original name to Pic Nic and chose Jeanette as their vocalist. They recorded their first single, Cállate Niña/Negra Estrella (1967), which sat at number one on the charts for 10 weeks. After their equally-successful second single Amanecer/No Digas Nada (1968), they got working on what would be their only LP. The album possesses a rare pre-adolescent lyricism, and Trabucchellis arrangements and production transforms their folk ballads into something never heard before, or since, in Spain. Besides the Vytas Brenner song "Te Esperaré," the covers of Peter, Paul And Marys "Tiny Sparrow," Janis Ians "Societys Child" and the only track sung in English, bluesman Jesse Fullers "San Francisco Bay Blues," are remarkable and their renditions rival the originals. However, theres no better track than "Cállate Niña" to define the spirit of the album: a lullaby sung by two small girls after the death of the mother of one of them, it overflows with melody despite its simplicity, and its use of triangle, harmonica and a male backing vocal provide an absolutely ghostly quality. Jeanette would start a successful solo career two years later, covering songs written by Manuel Alejandro, José Luis Perales and André Popp. After that, Pic Nic never recorded another record. Includes an insert with liner notes in Spanish and English. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl in a limited edition of 1,000 copies only." -Vinilisssimo

Title: Heliotropo
Format: LP
Label: Vinilissimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"Heliotropo (Ariola, 1973), the second LP by Vainica Doble, strikes me as the discovery of the world in little more than half an hour -- a treatise on the human condition, from childhood until death, based on the small things. Themes on this album include disappointment and the necessary courage to face mistakes, the road that lies between perception and memory and that vital path that appears once we have cleared out the fallen leaves that were hiding it. Its the recalled memories that will make up our life, as life is just firm present and feeble past. Carmen Santonja and Gloria van Aerssen speak to us, sometimes as the worried mother, other times as the warm lover that whispers secrets in our ear and, finally, as the slightly older friend, wiser and more experienced, who tries to show us lifes twists and turns. They possessed an intellectual and vital knowledge light years away from their contemporaries, an unusual curiosity and talent, and their musical references were as wide as scarce were their prejudices. Often considered two kind and sensitive angels, they were indeed that and much more too: malevolent, sweet, sarcastic, intelligent. From each of their tracks flowed a power and talent that showed us a thousand ideas. Social commentary, folk and fuzz hand-in-hand, treatises of luminous psychedelia born out of a childrens tale, the scent of the southern seas, and more. They carried Spanish copla and traditional songs in their hearts and the old (even then) musical movies of the 40s in their memories -- all of it strung together by a decadent melancholy that provokes an almost unhealthy attraction. What in others were anomalies poured from Vainica Doble as something natural, fluent, truthful. Nothing in them seemed forced: rock, copla, folk, French chanson, nursery rhymes, etc. And standing behind it all is the great Pepe Nieto: arranger, producer, and artisan who was able to reproduce and support their natural, iconoclastic personalities. Their songs were and still are buoys of memory. Familiar places in which to find shelter. Every time we visit them something wonderful happens." --Ximo Bonet. Vainica Doble were one of the most unique artists in Spanish music. On Heliotropo, they brought together rock, folk, Spanish copla, French chanson and lullabies to create music completely their own.

Title: El Alma de la Estrella
Format: LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"In the mid-80s, Granada was a small redoubt of avant-garde resistance. While Madrid bragged about being the capital of the new wave scene -- the much-trumpeted Movida madrilène -- away from any media interest, the Andalusian city was part of a European-wide network where the free circulation of ideas and knowledge could be linked to the current CopyLeft movement -- an international scene where musicians were editors and the artists were equally fans. They exchanged music following that do-it-yourself philosophy in which the cassette had an ideal role as the vehicle of music diffusion. Ani Zinc would become an expert amateur of such activities. As a child, there were no records in her home in Andújar, but radio gave her company. It was her only contact with music. She received her first shock listening to "Remember Love," the repetitive song by Yoko Ono. She later found out about Llorenç Barber. Only when she arrived in Granada to study psychology did she discover that she wasnt the only one that liked a kind of music that didnt resemble anything. Granadas proximity to Africa made it possible to tune into Arabic, flamenco and pop radio stations. She would record those sounds with a radio cassette and with her own hands she would cut and paste the magnetic tape. Unable to get that Yoko Ono song out of her mind, she started discovering the possibilities of her voice. Diseño Corbusier was born out of that obsession and also out of the electronic explorations of Javier G. Marín, then a first-year law student. They had met in 1981 after an ad in the music magazine Vibraciones. "If youre into bands like Cabaret Voltaire or Flying Lizards, call me," wrote Marín. If their first record (Pérfido encanto, 1985) was a vibrant experiment where the rhythms werent yet muscled up, with El Alma de la Estrella the duo took a step ahead. They renovated some electronic equipment and signed a distribution deal between their own label, Auxilio de Cientos, and one of the most prosperous Spanish independents of the 80s, Nuevos Medios, who were working with labels such as Factory at the time. Marín had been advised: if the rhythm cant be danced to the records wont sell. It was 1986 and he was constantly listening to DAF. El Alma de la Estrella gathered all of Zincs obsessions. On "Chiquillo" she imitated the angry womens voices which filled the streets of the poor neighborhood where she had grown up. "Ritmo 21" cant hide her admiration for Yoko Onos vocal register and "El Club del Ruido" came about as a fragmented document of an interview they did on the radio show of the same name. Marín created rhythm structures with which to organize the material. This time, he replaced an archaic Korg synthesizer with a powerful Roland SH101, and the tiny drum machine Boss DR-55 with a German-built one that used real percussion sounds: the MFB-512. Rather than electronic or even industrial music, Diseño Corbusiers second album was a vibrant piece of domestic craftwork. Very few got to hear it, but you get to hear it now. On 180 gram vinyl with insert. Limited, hand-numbered edition of 500 copies." -Vinilisssimo.

Title: Perfido Encanto

Price: $28.00
"180 gram vinyl reissue with insert. 1982: Dragged by decades of international isolation, Madrid and Granada performed, unaware and in their own way, the same roles that London and Sheffield had assumed during the punk explosion in the UK. While the capital grabbed headlines and considered itself the epicenter of modernity, 400 kilometres southwards, Granada developed an experimental scene despite the scarce resources available. Pérfido Encanto is Diseño Corbusiers first contribution to a European-wide scene where electronic instruments rose up against the media domination of guitars. They first got together when Ani Zinc, a psychology student without any previous musical experience, met two law students obsessed with the power of machines but with different approaches. Rafael Flores believed in the extreme noise of bands like Throbbing Gristle as a source of endless energy. Javier G. Marín had a sexier concept of synthesizers. The outcome was natural: Marín and Ani Zinc amicably parted ways with Flores, who would have a remarkable career under the alias Comando Bruno. Under the name Auxilio de Cientos, Maríns intention was to provide distribution to those unclassifiable projects he knew through fanzines, radio shows and record trading. Anis intention didnt go beyond spending time manipulating her voice on the cassettes she recorded. But one of her collage tracks reached national radio. Signed as by Neo Zelanda, "Paso hambre," consisting only of a treated, menacing and magnetic vocal, was played one night and the calls brought the radio station to a standstill. The record label DRO quickly signed her. The deal was for two singles: one with said track and another one for Diseño Corbusier. The latter never happened, so Marín decided his humble distribution company would become a label. And its first release would not be a single but an LP. The Korg synthesizer was the perfect tool for those who didnt know how to play and would never go to music school. The Boss DR-55 rhythm machine had a sweet appearance but a devastating character. A radio cassette player plugged into a Revox was the recording studio. And finally, Ani Zincs microphone: naivety made intention. Pérfido Encanto quickly sold its 500-copies run, more than half outside Spain." -Vinilissimo.

With echoes of Wire, This Heat, and Joy Division, this is one of the rarest and most outstanding records to come out of British post-punk." - Vinilisssimo.

Title: Outrageous
Format: LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"Reissue of this 1968 wild masterpiece and third album by one of rocks true mavericks, Kim Fowley. Fowley played with many bands throughout his career -- Mothers Of Invention, Family, Soft Machine, Cat Stevens and Manfred Mann, to name just a few. On 180 gram vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve." -Vinilisssimo. "Though its Rent-a-wreck homage to the Doors, the Mothers and Jimi Hendrix is immensely satisfying in a Teddy & His Patches sort-of-way, it wasnt the music on Outrageous which still leaves 21st century listeners gasping. No no no, the genius of this 1968 album is all contained in the dizzyingly portentous and truly whacked-out vocal delivery which Fowley chooses to foist upon us, And its a delivery which, I might add, entirely pre-empted 70s Iggy Pop and must have (at least temporarily) kicked Jim Morrisons dick into the dust. And hearing the various members of Steppenwolf trying to keep up with Fowleys heart attack vocalese is mesmerizing in itself. And all this at a time when iconoclastic recording acts were commonplace enough to be almost expected." -Julian Cope.

Title: Etcétera
Format: LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
“In 1970, after four fantastic singles under the nameNew Juggler Sound, the Peruvian band formed bySaúl Cornejo (guitar), David Levene (lead guitar),Ernesto Samamé (bass), Carlos Salom (organ), and Manuel Cornejo (drums) changed their name toLaghonia and recorded their debut LP Glue for the Mag label. It was an album influenced by the British rock of the era, to which they added fiery guitars full of fuzz and wah-wah, the omnipresent and hypnotic Hammond organ sound, and Latin American percussion and rhythms. A perfect mix of the British beat melodies of the mid-60s, Jimi Hendrixs intense rock, Creams heavy blues, and Santanas Latin rock. Laghonia returned to the studio in 1971 to record their second LP for Mag. Packaged in a clearly psychedelic gatefold sleeve designed by the bands drummer, Manuel Cornejo, Etcétera shares all the elements of the first LP, though on this occasion, the compositions, while keeping their immediacy and featuring strong melodies and choruses, have a more complex structure, ranging from psychedelia to progressive rock through superb, dark King Crimson-esque passages and shining moments of pastoral folk. Sure to be cherished by lovers of Latin American rock, pop, and psychedelia as practiced by such other similar classic bands as Traffic Sound,We All Together, Black Sugar, and Telegraph Avenue. This reissue is presented in a replica of the original gatefold sleeve.” - Vinilissimo.

"180-gram vinyl. In 1969, after four brilliant singles, the Peruvian band The New Juggler Sound, formed by Saúl Cornejo (guitar), David Levene (lead guitar), Ernesto Samamé (bass), Carlos Salom (organ), and Manuel Cornejo (drums), changed their name to Laghonia and released their debut LP, Glue, on the MaG label. The album included tracks from their initial singles, which were heavily influenced by the British rock scene of those years, to which they added fiery guitars bursting with fuzz and wah-wah, the ever present and hypnotic Hammond organ sound, and Latin American percussion and rhythms. The result was a wonderful mix of mid-60s British beat melodies, Jimi Hendrixs intense rock, Creams heavy blues, and Santanas Latin rock. Glue is regarded as one of the key albums of Latin American psych and garage rock, and is an essential record for any fan of those genres." - Vinilisssimo.

Artist: MAR OTRA VEZ
Title: No He Olvidado Cómo Jugar Embarrado/Fiesta del Diablo y el Cerdo
Format: LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
180-gram vinyl. First reissue. "It was 1985. Scrap metal wasnt a common sight on those stages. A large can sprinkled with alcohol on its surface was used as percussion. Over that menacing piece of junk hung a glass bottle, whose contact against the can stimulated a rhythm chaos loaded with grunts and violence. The band was called Mar Otra Vez. The song, Jonás. Its last note was the loud noise caused by that bottle smashing against the can. Shattered to pieces. Destroying the tasteful notions of melody and colour. Confronting Madrids Movida (the late 70s/early 80s countercultural movement). ... Julián Sanz (bass),Javier Corcobado (vocals and wind instruments),Javier Rodrigo (guitar), Luis Corchado (drums) and Andrews Wax (keyboards) built on the daring experiences, two or three years earlier, of bands such as 429 Engaños -- where some of the Mar Otra Vez members had started to play with noise -- or La Gran Curva, whose members had a stall at Madrids Rastro market where they sold recorded cassette copies of difficult music. ... Its the summer of 1983. 429 Engaños break up. Compulsory military obligations drive them away from each other. ... after finishing the military service Corcobado chooses Tenerife as his residence, where he experiments with industrial composition techniques such as the cut and paste of magnetic tapes. He corresponds with Julián Sanz by letter, they exchange lyrics, sounds and theories. ...No he olvidado cómo jugar embarrado (also Fiesta del diablo y el cerdo) was recorded over three days in February 1985. ... Their young adrenaline was channelled towards a real tension, sometimes brutal, others psychological. If 429 Engaños had been an exercise in experimentation, the first Mar Otra Vez mini-LP became an exercise in intellectual composition. Being different was the best virtue. So much that they refused to wear dishevelled dandy uniforms, in the style that their admired Nick Cavehad done in his Birthday Party period, thus freeing themselves from aesthetics. The wildness of the Australian band was present. But so were New Yorks no wave, jazz-rock bass lines and the most aggressive funk. It was a complete initiation to otherness that would yield another two records (Edades de óxido (1986) and Algún paté venenoso(1987)) and which nobody in Spain would be able to match, although it would serve as template for record labels of the next decade such as Triquinoise and Por Caridad." - César Estabiel.

Artist: NIGHTINGALES
Title: Pigs on Purpose
Format: LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"Around 1980/1981, The Nightingales had released a single -- Idiot Strength on Rough Trade Records -- and promptly lost half of its members (Joe Crow -- ego clash, Eamonn Duffy -- victim of Lloyd megalomania, or so he tells me), leaving me on the mic and Paul Apperley on the drums. We had a bit of a repertoire created from the Duffy/Crow improvisation period, plus I had written a new song called Use Your Loaf. We tried out a few guitarists and carried on doing gigs and Peel Sessions but when, out of the blue, Mike Alway, then A&R at Cherry Red Records, got in touch about a possible record contract, the group was basically just me and Paul. We had been playing with two guitarists (Andy Lloyd and Nick Beales), who I genuinely cannot remember how we had met, plus a Bobby Charlton lookalike from Hull, Steve Hawkins, who I had met at a Birmingham Music Co-op meeting and who, I had discovered, liked a drink and played the bass. However, these three and us two werent hitting it off, again I cant remember why, and were it not for the intervention of Mr. Always, I dunno what would have happened next. But, somehow, he tracked us down and said he wanted to see us live. He came to Birmingham to watch us play and told me beforehand that he was going to sign either Moe Tucker or the Gales. I dunno why he couldnt do both. When he saw us at our regular haunt, the Fighting Cocks in Moseley, he liked us. Me and Paul (still undecided about the others) signed to Cherry Red for a specific, but forgotten, amount of albums. For perennial losers like me and Apperley we were on the first rung of the ladder. Well, necessity dictated that Lloyd, Beales and Hawkins were kept on board and in spite, or because, of our differences, we started writing a bunch of good material and playing live regularly enough to become half-decent. We recorded a couple of singles at Sinewave Studios in Brum with a chap called Cris "Yus" Williams. After the two singles Cherry Red released a 12" EP of a Peel session we had done and then reckoned it was time for an album. Mike Alway thought we should have a producer. How Richard Strange came about, I dont know. Whether he made POP any better than it would have been? I dunno. As per usual by now, the LP was very well received in the music papers. Our main champion, Dave McCullough in Sounds, made it his album of the year and also got a photo of me on the front cover of the paper with one of his Gales articles. After the LPs release, Hawkeye left the group to go straight. A housemate of mine called John Nester was roped in and away we went to promote it, including a, sort of, memorable jaunt to Holland. The evening before we got on the ferry we guested at one of Richard Stranges multi-media extravaganza type dos in Brixton, London. At the end of the night when the gear was being lifted down from the stage to be loaded in to the van, there was a terrible stink to be sniffed. And, truly, it was discovered to be a human shit, done on the floor right in front of the stage, obviously freshly laid during the evenings performance." --Robert Lloyd

Artist: POLONIO
Title: Acaricia la Manana
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
180-gram LP with bonus 7". "Eduardo Polonio has been one of the key figures of Spanish music since the late 1960s, especially as a pioneer in the field of electroacoustic music. He was a member, with Luis de Pablo and Horacio Vaggione, of Grupo Alea Electrónica Libre (1970-1972), the first Spanish group to play electronic music live, and he has been one of the main figures of Barcelonas Laboratorio Phonos studio since 1976. He was also a founding member and president, between 1988 and 1994, of Spains Electroacoustic Music Association. In 1994 he received the Magisterium award at the Grand Prix International de Musique Électroacoustique in Bourges, France. His deeply personal body of work has often gone beyond recorded sound to establish a dialogue with physical space and other artistic creations, as exemplified by his numerous collaborations with sculptors, video artists, painters, experimental filmmakers, and stage designers, and his own work in the field of installation art. In 1976 Polonio moved to Barcelona and became involved with the citys Phonos Electroacoustic Laboratory, meeting composers Andrés Lewin-Richter and Josep María Mestres-Quadreny. This was the beginning of the creative period reflected on Acaricia la Mañana (1984), which contains 11 pieces recorded between 1976 and 1984 at Phonos and remastered at Cuencas Gabinete de Música Electroacústica. On these pieces, Polonio employs various synthesizers, including Polymoog, Minimoog, EMS, and a Farfisa organ, for a sort of suite constructed as a collection of short pieces from imaginary countries. The cyclical repetition of these short melodic sequences, which bear a clearly modal and even tonal quality, are built from three or four electronic tracks, but the texture is more heterophonic than polyphonic, as the composer plays with imbalance in the superposition of the repetitions. Each synth track is also underlined by noticeable differences in timbre, resulting in a suggestive heterophonic texture that captivates with its fragile and pleasant appearance and reveals a great refinement in the rhythmic and melodic treatment. Its not an exaggeration to say that Acaricia la Mañana is a classic, and an essential record in the history of Spanish electronic music. This facsimile reissue of the 1984 LP released by Unió Músics includes a bonus 7" featuring four previously unreleased tracks recorded by Polonio during the same period of 1976-1984." - Vinilissimo.

The Reflections were a sort of post-punk super-group formed by Mark Perry(Alternative TV, The Good Missionaries, The Door And The Window), Dennis Burns (Alternative TV),Karl Blake (The Lemon Kittens) and Nag (The Door And The Window). Perry and Nag share vocal duties on an album that opens with the disheveled pop nugget "Tightrope Walker" to go through more reflective moments such as "Demon of My Desires" and "Clamming Up," to outbursts of noisy experimentation and free-form passages that verge towards no wave ("Nag Takes a Ride," "The Parting").

Title: s/t
Format: LP

Country: Spain

"Tarkus was born after the 1971 split of Telegraph Avenue, one of the most popular Peruvian bands at the time. TA member Walo Carrillo was joined by Argentinean musicians Guillermo Van Lacke, whom he had met previously in Lima, and 16-year-old Dario Gianella. They got together and started making music very influenced by bands such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and Deep Purple. They immediately developed a heavy, hard rock sound uncommon in Peru, and asked former Telegraph Avenue member Alex Nathanson to join them. They recorded their first album between April and May of 1972 for the MAG record label, which was expecting something closer to Telegraph Avenue and didnt know how to market such a heavy sound. Soon after, guitarist and main composer Dario Gianella decided to leave the band to follow his religious faith, just before they presented their debut LP live. As a result, the band disintegrated without making their official debut and only around 50 promo copies of the album were actually distributed. Time has given this LP the significance it rightly deserves as one of the foundations of Latin American hard rock, and Vinilísssimo is proud to present this new vinyl reissue. Housed in a gatefold sleeve; on 180 gram vinyl." - Vinilisssimo.

Artist: VAINICA DOBLE
Title: Taquicardia
Format: Double LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"180 gram vinyl reissue of one of Vainica Dobles strongest and most experimental albums. Folk, jazz, pop and traditional Spanish music create a beautifully haunting and captivating LP. "In 1984, the Spanish Movida movement was in full bloom and the people taking part in it professed the same devotion to Vainica Doble that British punk displayed towards teen idols such as Marc Bolan. But it would be hard to find a record from those years more impervious to the Movida than Taquicardia, the authors of which seemingly didnt know about such admiration or didnt care about it. Eternal dilettantes, it wasnt strange that the career of Gloria van Aerssen (born in 1932 in Dos Hermanas, Seville) and Carmen Santonja (San Sebastian, 1934) moved forward, most of the time, due to the encouragement of a fan. But this jump without safety net, as Mario Pacheco described it, only could have happened on a label as pathologically respectful towards its artists as Pachecos Nuevos Medios imprint, and at a vital point such as the one the duo were going through during the middle of the decade. It was his enthusiasm which took them out of their silence to record their sixth album and the end of a cycle, as their later recordings would finally be an epilogue of what culminated here magnificently. Elegant, classic, austere and, nevertheless, sounding at times like genuine avant-garde, Taquicardia is the reflection of a critical stage in the life of its authors. Disillusioned by the poor repercussion of their two previous albums for Guimbarda, the outstanding El Eslabón Perdido (1980) and El Tigre De Guadarrama (1981), Gloria and Carmen had found themselves at the peak of mature age and empty-handed. The duo delivers here their most personal, introspective and bitter work, which surprisingly becomes, as if by magic, a superb collection of calls to chaos, libertarian fables and exultant love songs. Passion becomes idolatry, gallant coplas (Spanish popular songs) are touched by grace, pieces of marital bitterness, all of which culminates in an anthem of incredible beauty such as Sígueme, clean, stripped, overwhelming. Gloria declared being so ashamed of the tracks almost pastoral tone that she refused being credited for it. Of course, its her voice which will make the song remain forever. Stripped of the glitz they had displayed in the preceding years, its harder to find here the source of popular and academic music which could usually be heard in their music. But that clarity allows us, more than ever, to enjoy the boldness of many of their song structures and, of course, their vocal harmonies. These two pieces of vinyl contain their most refined work." --César Sánchez aka Fulgencio Pimentel; Liner notes in English and Spanish by César Sánchez." -Vinilissimo.

Showcasing his signature blend of rock n roll, psychedelia, and folk-tinged country, and treading a fine line of deft lyricism influenced by Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Lou Reed, and punk, Good Hand Bad Hand is perhaps Grahams most accomplished LP to date. The packaging is also pretty special, with Grahams classic self-portraiture artwork featured on bespoke silver-foiled gloss-coated outer and inner sleeves. Though Graham is best known as an artist for his films, photographs, and installations, music has been a major part of his work throughout his career; from performing with the band U-J3RK5 in Vancouver in the late 1970s through composing soundtracks for slide and film works to his performances and recordings as a singer-songwriter, including the records Rock Is Hard (2003), Im a Noise Man, and Why Look for Good Times?

Price: $26.00
"A fleeting moment of inspired folk rock/psychedelia, recorded at Oberlin College in 1968 by four college students and one local teen. The band was the brainchild of student and guitarist Steve DeTray who had just returned to school after a brief hiatus in Utah, where he was undoubtedly inspired by the whole West Coast psychedelic rock scene. Upon returning to Oberlin DeTray recruited some friends who had already been playing together in a blues band. After a year spent playing a mix of covers and original material, mostly at on-campus and off-campus parties, the boys decide to commit their moment in history to vinyl, recording 24 Hours in two sessions with the help of fellow student David Crosby (not of CSN&Y fame, as is sometimes claimed). The original pressing was just 300 copies that were then sold mainly to friends and local fans, and soon became one of those rare collectibles from which several low-quality bootlegs were made. This album has been digitally remastered and features the original sleeve art. 180 gram vinyl." -Vinyl Lovers

ARKESTRA "In 1983 Sun Ra travelled to Egypt -- the land of great African kings and perhaps descendants of an alien race, and therefore, a kind of spiritual homeland for Ra -- to record two compositions by the godfather of Egyptian jazz, percussionist Salah Ragab. The second piece, Dawn, is a composition based on an Islamic hymn sung during the Arabic month of Shawall and features Ra playing the Hohner melodica. This record is particularly significant because, despite Ras enormous discography and tours to all corners of the globe, this is one of the few times he ever recorded with a non-African American musician. Perhaps Ra was intrigued by the fact that the two men shared the same initials? Or perhaps he was drawn to his exceptional talent as a percussionist... knowing Ra it was probably a little of both.

"An internationally known artist, Franco Battiato has been everything in his long career, from beat singer to avantgarde performer, producer, and contemporary music composer. His beginnings lay in the mid 60s, with many singles released with no particular success, the first two under his real name of Francesco. He had left his native Sicily (he was born in Jonia, near Catania in 1945) moving to Milan around 1965. In 1970 after his collaboration with Osage Tribe (that he quit before their only album Arrowhead) he had a record deal with Bla Bla, releasing his first solo album in 1972. Foetus, housed in a outrageous cover (reproducing a foetus) was definitely a prog album, but a very original one, with a minimalist sound mainly based on the use of a VCS3 synth, unusual lyrics, complex arrangements. Two tracks, Energia and Una cellula were also released as single. Produced by Pino Massara in the 70s, Foetus remained unreleased until 1999, when Vinyl Magic finally released it on CD (VM CD 065).

Circus 2000 was not a real progressive album, since it derived from the psychedelic and west-coast scenes from the USA, but its still considered one of the LPs that opened to the florid Italian pop season, which would explode just a couple of years later.

Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
Edition of 200. “Pekka Airaksinen is a Finnish composer of electronic music. Airaksinen formed his first band, The Sperm, in late 1967. The Sperm mixed elements of avant-garde music with free jazz and psychedelic pop. By 1970 Airaksinen had started his own label, O Records, to produce and distribute his solo LPs, including One Point Music (1972); The Sperms Shh! Heinäsirkat(1970); and a 1972 LP by his free-jazz-dominated project Samsa Trio (together with Antero Helander and Mattijuhani Koponen) (all available in theWorks 1968-1976 box (VOD 137LP)). Following The Sperms breakup in the mid-1970s, Airaksinen turned to Buddhism, but kept producing music in the years to come, integrating Roland 808 drum machines into his music and releasing classic LPs like 1984s Buddhas of Golden Light (ALE 004LP); it was during this period that he produced Afrodipankara.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

“Limited edition of 200. Anode has been the professional alias of Robert Carlberg since 1972. The Seattle-based musician has dabbled in musique concrète, minimalist tape music, drones, manipulations, and other non-keyboard-based electronics. Through founding a newsletter for electronic musicians in 1979 called SYNEX (together with Charles Larrieu), establishing one of the first DIY tape labels (Anode Productions, which released works by Anode and Kerry Leimer), and writing a monthly column for Electronic Musician magazine (1979-1989) and Polyphony, Carlberg was one of the very first active cassette-producing artists, label-runners, editors, networkers, and catalysts for the worldwide DIY electronic music exchange, and one of the most important persons and influential artists in what has come to be known as "cassette culture." This double LP includes tracks from Anode (1979), Trips North Trips South (1979), Kinetic Experiments (rec. 1974-79, rel. 1981), Early Tapeworm (1975), Floyd Cramers Hall of Gold (1975), and Year of The Taperecorder.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: A Career in Dancing - Abstraction Years 1979-81
Format: 5 LP Box/10"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $119.00
"Highly anticipated box set covering the musical output from 1979 to 1981 by one of the ultimate musical genius and protagonists of British minimal synth and EBM. Multi-talented Luton-based Adrian Smith started his first musical exploration in the field of electronic and experimental music in the mid 70s, self-releasing projects on his Abstractions label, including projects called Underland and Electrodub, the latter of which gained recognition from Throbbing Gristles Industrial Records. During 1979 and 1981, after leading punk-orientated bands with his brother Derek Smith for three years (Those Nervous Surgeons, Nervous Surgeons, Half Nervous), Adrian Smith recorded six tapes, all reissued here for the first time, with almost six hours of atmospheric, powerful minimal synth music from which no listener can escape without experiencing wonderful feelings and emotions. His first two tapes from 1979 (From the Silent Days and Absolutely Safe) were only given to friends (due to a lack of contacts and the absence of what would later become a thriving cassette culture) and therefore remained almost unheard. With the release of A Career in Dancing in the summer of 1980 (a compilation of his early works from those two tapes plus a selection of new material), he increasingly gained appreciation on an international level, winning acclaim from both press and individuals within the developing tape-trader community. Before long people such as Martin Reed of the Mirage label became interested in releasing his works. Members of the press and editors such as Chris Jones of Flowmotion.Mag began reviewing. With the fourth and fifth releases, Look (Mirage, 1980) and The Mental Dance (1981), he managed to get into the Cassette "Obscurist" Charts in Sounds Magazine (run by Paul Platypus, later Paddy Shennan) and finally received attention and recognition. For his sixth tape, Killing Time (1981), Smith started a label called Lung Function, possibly related to the fact that the sound was changing from atmospheric minimal synth to a harsher and rougher sound, which laid the foundation for the typical EBM sound of Click Click, which Smith and his brother started around that time, a sound best experienced on the Behind Dark Glasses tape." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Secretaries from Heaven/Wild Card
Format: Double LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $34.00
“Art Interface was a synth band uninfluenced by the direction of mainstream European synth stylings. A band from the American Midwest (except for the Swedish drummer), it was initiated in 1979 by Douglas Vasey, Steven Curran, and Claes Roswall, with Roger Deason joining later. They disdained Kraftwerk but loved NEU! and bands like The Stooges. Propelled by live drums instead of marching lockstep to the beat of a drum machine, they twisted knobs on impulse with no idea of what would happen. They recorded many songs in the studio with all members playing at once but recording on separate tracks, which gives them a looseness and a life contrary to the more robotic feel of the time. Some songs had a sociopolitical bent and thus a purpose; others were merely wild, unexpected accidents of immediate creation, ranging from melodic to ambient to noise to all of the above. Unlike many synth bands, guitar often figured into the mix -- sometimes in the background, and sometimes as a striking accent over the synths, but never as a traditional lead. Their first synth-based tape,Secretaries from Heaven, released on their own If Records in early 1982, was meant as a kind of parody. The combination of simple, self-playing sounds and Vaseys great lyrics was stronger than anyone expected. Two 7" (Secretaries from Heaven and Wardance) followed 1983 and 84, respectively. In 1986 they released their full-length debut, Great Big World of Noise and Shit, and another demo tape called Its Not the Way It Should Have Been But Thats the Way It Is. This double LP collection, also available as part of the expansive 80s Minimal.Synth.Wave: Volume III box set (VOD 138LP), combines tracks from all of the releases described above.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Format: 3 LP Box + 7"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $77.00
Limited edition of 333. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "A box-release covering the Band Of Holy Joys cassette released artistic output from 1983 to 1986, split on 3 records. Band Of Holy Joy were formed in the summer of 1983 when Johny and Max found a synthesizer in the cellar of the squatted New Cross Gate house they were living in. They started messing about on this synth and started writing songs on it. The songs however were very messy and the discovery of an old plastic harmonium in a local junk shop only added to the chaos. They brought in Brett Turnbull to bring a sense of order to the noise they were creating. Brett brought along Martine Thoquenne with him and the noise in the cellar started becoming very interesting indeed. A person who is much forgotten but quite instrumental in what went on was George Lovell. John Jenkins, a photographer who was around the house, was persuaded to trade his camera for a mouth organ, tambourine and various other instruments. The Band Of Holy Joy, a completed entity, started to create strange sounds and songs began to emerge. Cultural interests at this time were 8 and 35mm film, Bertol Brecht stage play and the electronic disco sounds that could be heard and bought uptown. Subjects that fired their imaginations were media scare stories, prescription medications, institutional living, big cities, bad glamor and self-preservation in vulnerable situations. There was an affinity and shared living space with the constructivist outfit Test Dept who took Band Of Holy Joy out on tour with them resulting in very early performances in Manchester, Sheffield and Retford. When they returned to London they entered the studio and began to record and assemble tracks to go alongside the porta studio recordings, cut ups, and collages they were creating at home. They also played with Einsturzende Neubauten around this time. The band was interested in the emerging cassette culture of the day. The first cassette was Favourite Fairytales For Juvenile Delinquents which was released in 1983 More Favourite Fairytales was recorded on a four track portastudio which was released in 1984. The band would often make and play their own instruments as well as make their own films. A special post-punk pre-acid house, a creatively perfect time to be young and full of noise, word and image in London." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"Limited edition of 200. Marc Barreca is an American synthesist and multi-instrumentalist and one of the pioneers of American cassette culture. Inspired by Brian Eno and the ambient school, he began recording his own music in the mid-70s. By 1980 he already recorded three tapes: In a Foreign Land (1977), Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/80), and Currents (1979/80) -- all three only released and distributed via Eurock in an extremely low quantity. In 1980 he released his first LP, Twilight, on K. Leimers Palace of Lights label; a tape called Music Works for Industry would follow three years later on Palace of Lights, and another, The Sleeper Wakes, three years later on Jeff Greinkes Intrepid label. Besides performing together with James Husted and Roland Barker as the Seattle-based electronic music group Young Scientist in the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was also a member of K. Leimers studio group Savant. Barreca uses digital and analog synthesizers, digital samplers, environmental field recordings, and computer-processed audio loops to create multi-layered audio compositions. He employs similar techniques to those used in his audio recordings to create multilayered abstract visual compositions from digital photos and video source material. This LP includes tracks from Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/80), Currents (1979/80), Music Works for Industry (1983), and In a Foreign Land (1977).” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

“2015 repress of the 2012 box set. John Bender is without a doubt the protagonist, if not the inventor, of the musical genre known as minimal wave.

Title: Where Dark Forces Meet
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "A vinyl reissue of Ron Berrys Where Dark Forces Meet, originally released on cassette in 1982. Ron became interested in electronics as a child in the mid-fifties, making radios and other electronic projects. He built my first synthesizer from a magazine article, but the performance wasnt that great so he started to modify it. Before too long hed built a modular system of his own design. Microprocessor boards became affordable at the end of the seventies. The outcome of the experiments was a fully programmable sequencer and an electronic percussion unit. A friend of Rons, Phil Clogg, became interested in it. The result of this was to form an electronic duo called Out of Control around 1979. It was based around two modular synthesizers, guitar, vocals and a further synthesizer and electronic percussion controlled by my unique microprocessor based sequencer. The microprocessor generated all the basic rhythmic backing control patterns for the synthesizers and electronic percussion during the whole of the gig. Phil played guitar, sang vocals plus playing a pedal board for some extra bass depth. They were one of the first bands in the UK to employ a computer for live music creation and generation. For them this was so much better than using a fixed backing on a tape recorder as some were doing. The duo was a huge turning point for Ron. After Out of Control, Ron produced his first electronic music album Where Dark Forces Meet, released on cassette on the independent Flowmotion. The album is basically a 4 track multi-track recording, with extra atmospheres and effects flown in using a couple of additional two track tape recorders. The mixing desk at the time was six channels, plus the mixers on Rons synthesizers. From the success of this, he really wanted to develop his own solo electronic rock ambient music live, so he concentrated on expanding the sequencer to produce polyphonic control patterns and added a Godwin string synth. To date, Ron has produced fourteen albums of solo electronic music, ranging from rock to more ambient experimental styles. Ron has continued to experiment and build stuff when he could. Since then analog has largely given way to digital. He has embraced and exploited much of this technology along the way but in some respects he remained "old school" as a lot of todays highly compressed digital earplug music is not exactly to his taste." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

In the late 70s and early 1980s Boddy began experimenting at an Arts Council-funded studio in Newcastle called Spectro Arts Workshop, where he was able to use the facility and its equipment (e.g. VCS 3, EMS, etc.) to compose and record his first compositions. This early period resulted in three cassette releases on the Mirage label, which showcased Boddys work with analog synthesis and tape manipulation -- Images (1979/80), Elements of Chance (1981), and Options (1982).

Title: Panspermia
Format: Double LP + 7"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $40.00
“Garry Bradbury is widely considered one of Australias pioneers of electronic music. From 1980 to 1985, Bradbury was a member of the seminal electronic post-punk project Severed Heads alongside Tom Ellard, Richard Fielding, and others. The group released a series of seminal albums, including Blubberknife (1982), Since the Accident(1983), City Slab Horror (1985), and the retrospective Clifford Darling, Please Dont Live in the Past (1985). These works were characterized by dynamic integration of experimental musical practices, such as tape manipulations, cut-ups, and the use of found sounds, with more conventional musical forms containing recognizable beats and melodies. Bradbury also directed and designed, with various collaborators, three Severed Heads videos, for the tracks "Goodbye Tonsils," "Canine," and "Big Car." In 1988 he released his first solo album, Drug Induced Sex Rituals (titled for a young American audience). In 1992, with Jason Gee, he formed the band Size. They played live, drank beer, and smoked copious cigarettes throughout the 90s and eventually released the album Actual Size in 1997. Bradbury followed this with two solo CDs -- Ruffini Corpuscle(2003) and Instant Oblivion (2005) -- released on Dual Plover, a notorious label that specialized in "smashing windows of opportunity." Throughout this time he also worked extensively in theater, providing soundtracks for works ranging from experimental movement theatre -- most notably Burn Sonata, featured at the 1998 Adelaide Festival -- to the Sydney Theatre Companys productions of Shakespeare. His soundtrack for Macbeth (2002) is particularly infamous for its relentless, nightmarish brutality, consisting as it did, for the most part, of samples of pinball machines. Panspermia, also available as part of the expansive 80sMinimal.Synth.Wave: Volume III box set (VOD 138LP), is an assemblage of remastered and re-edited works by Bradbury, recorded sporadically from 1986 to 2005.

Furthermore Etat Bruts complete Geometrie dun Assasinat and a selection of tracks by The Parts (DDV, AMVK and Erik Vloeberghs) are included. Some of the tracks included in this box-set have never been released before. From 1981 until 1993 Club Moral acted as a venue and until today as a music performance band. They have become known for their controversial performances and imagery because they focused on the presentation of art and live events of an extreme nature. Acts that have performed at Club Moral have included Non (Boyd Rice), Coup de Grace (Michael Moynihan), Slave State, Gerechtigkeits Liga, - Delta t, John Duncan, Angst, AR/TE, ProduKtion, Jack Stevenson, ConDom and many more. This box-release should give an audio- and visual overview and insight into the work of and at Club Moral and their two protagonists, DDV and AMVK. It will take you beyond the highly sought after vinyl-release of To All Who Are Interested from 1989 and will focus on the very early stage of Club Morals work including acclaimed pieces of close friends and collaborators." - Vinyl-on-Demand.

Title: Crash Course In Science
Format: 3 LP/ 7" Box Set
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $108.00
"Legendary minimal-synth/wave-band from Philadelphia formed in 1979. Choosing toy instruments and live drums out of necessity, CCIS began by experimenting with a series of recording devices. The toy instruments gave way to crude drum machines and Frankenstein-type homemade instruments. Their first 7" (also included with bonus tracks in this set) introduced listeners to a noisy, unpredictable world. This 7" went on to become a classic minimal-synth record that should be included in any vinyl-collection. In 1981 they took a new direction with a darker, more sinister sound. The result was the 12" Signals from Pier Thirteen (also included in this set are 8 unreleased demo tracks from this period). The songs Cardboard Lamb and Flying Turns gained exposure through club play during the 80s and still sound fresh and up-to-date. Two live performance recordings from 1980 and 1981 are also part of this box set, including CCIS opening for the Philip Glass ensemble in Philadelphia. The third LP Near Marineland contains completed mixes of previously unreleased studio material (along with some remixes of this material) arranged and produced by John Wicks, CCISs original producer. After listening to this box set you will be convinced and have no doubt about CCIS being the godfather of 90s techno music and their ultimate protagonist-role. They remain an inspiration pool for many elektro bands/artists today." - Vinyl on Demand.

Title: Mundane Recordings 1980-1985
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "Mundane Recordings 1980-1985 comprises a selection of music pieces created by Ron Crowcroft. Punk had opened possibilities for artists to explore sound structures as another means of creating, showing that original work could be produced using rudimentary technical equipment and expertise. Ron began experimenting with sound in 1979 and contributed several of these tracks to various Mail Art projects, including sending many pieces to Rod Summers of VEC Audio Editions, who released them on compilation tapes and a solo tape. Ron also contributed to galleries and alternative spaces that were open to new kinds of music. In late 1979, Ron co-founded New 7th Music, an experimental electronic and acoustic improvisation group, which met every two weeks for recording sessions at The Arun Leisure Centre in Bognor Regis, Sussex, England. New 7th Music began releasing cassettes as the national interest in home recording was gaining momentum, which received regular articles and reviews in the national music press. New 7th Music played some live shows, including a performance at The London Musicians Collective. Many musicians and friends joined the group over the years on various recording sessions and in live shows. Ron also collaborated with Andrew Blackwell, as the duo, The Modern Farmers, releasing an anonymous cassette in 1981, which combined experimental sound pieces and humorous tracks. A magazine was included with the cassette. A subsequent collaboration saw Ron sending basic vocal tracks to Robert Gillham, who then added music tracks to complete each piece, which were released as the duo, Random Valency. At the same time, Ron continued recording and releasing his own music on his Mundane Tapes label, first with Skullduggery in 1980, and his second release, I Am Normal (1981), entered the Sounds music paper "Obscurist Chart". He then released Greatest Hiss, a series of four compilation tapes comprised of various music tracks from his solo and collaborative work. Ron is a multi-media artist, who continues to create and release music. His other creative output includes drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance art, conceptual art, poetry and humor." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"Early eighties sound-project and conceptual work from 1984 also known as Gerry Belz. Worlds of music ringed out on our planet. Simultaneously blown out, not attuned but still tuned incidentally, partly at on purpose. In 1984, Die Tödliche Doris was given the chance for such a coincidence of two different worlds. They were invited to compose the music for a fashion-show in the Deplane Kunsthalle Berlin. For the first time, this fully documented composition consists of 24 Audiotapes with sounds and music-recordings which were recorded and then played with different technically defect tape-recorders and which were accompanied of the band Gerry-Belz-Showband which has been selected from the employment-office in Berlin. The repertoire of the three olderly men did consist of the usually well-known evergreens of entertainment and light-music.        Die Tödliche Doris is sometimes referred to an industrial-band. In fact, the group has played and cooperated with SPK and Twin Vision. If there is any music of the band which can be referred to Industrial, then it is this project here, which was only released in certain pieces to this point." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

This double LP compiles their first two tape releases published on their own tape label including 22 beautiful wave songs in the style of Factory acts like New Order, and even recalling the legendary Joy Division. The first LP features the contents of the Der Werkpilot compilation, released in 1983 and collecting recordings from 1981-83 by Die Werkpiloten, Prinz Eisenhart, Landungsbrücken, Der Vorkriegsrausch, and Rhabarberkompott. The second LP features the highly sought-after masterpiece The Wonderful World of Die Werkpiloten from 1984. Its music that, except for guitar and bass, mainly has electric origins; it flows, sways, and encourages one to dream. It should kidnap the listener out of everyday life and into another, wonderful world. Constantly changing between introverted soundtracks and elaborated electro tracks. A complex and multifarious industrial pop, inspired by a melancholic attitude with its origins in the Mancunian Factory label of Section 25 and Joy Division. This is not surprising, considering where the duo grew up. They came from the Ruhr region of Germany, characterized by coal industry, a working-class environment, and disillusionment." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"6LP leather box with DVD. "The box provides all of Etant Donnes avant-garde tapes released between 1977 and 1983 on the famous French BainTotal-Label Recordings including: La Vue, Lopposition, Letoile Au Front, Ceux Quon Aime - Ce Que Je Hais, Cinq Portes Soudees, Les Cents Jours Clairs. The release also contains a DVD with live performances of Etant Donnes over the last three decades. The music of this Etant Donnés first period (1977-1983) boxset describes a rite of passage from mortality to divinity, a powerful but hidden passion craving beauty and burning love that can be conquered only by another form of secret pain, that of losing yourself in the cosmos and becoming part of the muddy streams of distant stars. Their soundworks are constructed through the manipulation of natural sounds, using the variation of velocity and intensity of the recordings, the cutting and splicing of tape. Etant Donnes compositions are passionate and brutally communicative, their music and words are minimalist just like the writings and chants of the religious mystics Sufi, trying to recover the virginity of the words and sounds, they map new territories and establish their own personal rules. These first tracks contains all the brutal collages of found sounds investigating nuances of sounds that at times verges upon silence, the inspired and enraptured meeting with earths natural forces, an homage to the shadow of night, to the vineyard and the golden door. In these first six LPs Etant Donnés create their own brand of total audio expression using belches and punches, their attention is concentrated on the symphonic cacophonie organisation of disorganized found sounds, using magical rhythms only directed by cosmic rules. A perfect way of organizing natural sounds that obeys fundamental principles that everyone wishes to convey, a music able to tear down walls and build a universal comprehension, a cosmic law of beauty, a magical and alchemical act of poetry." - Vinyl-On-Demand

Title: Prototype -- Plus Garage Tracks
Format: Double LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $41.00
"A 12" vinyl, double record set containing the music of Experimental Products. If you are a long time collector of 80s indie minimal synth looking to fill out your catalog or a novice interested in starting one up, there is no better place to start than with Experimental Products. A synth duo from Philadelphia/northern Delaware USA, members Mark Wilde and Michael Gross produced 8-track gear recordings, then had their music pressed to vinyl. In 1984 they released the 3 song 12" EP Glowing in the Dark, 2000 copies. Glowing proved irresistible to DJs and became a 1985 dance club chart breakthrough. Today, many DJs and collectors consider it a classic synth record. 2 years before Glowing they released a 10 song vinyl LP titled Prototype, 300 copies. Prototype remained an obscure record until minimal synth collectors caught wind of it in the late 90s. Prototype became a high priced bidding item whenever the rare vinyl showed up on e-Bay. It seems Experimental Products had again produced what many collectors consider a classic 80s minimal synth record. VOD is now pleased to announce the reissue of Prototype to high quality vinyl. Re-mastered by VOD from the original 1/4" master tapes, this reissue has improved sonic quality not found on the original 1982 pressings. Own it now, experience it for yourself. Prototype will be LP-1 side A+B of the VOD double record set. Garage Tracks, LP-2 of the Experimental Products record set will hopefully become yet another classic piece of synthesizer vinyl. A garage track is described by M. Gross as a primitive to semi-pro sound recording not necessarily intended for public distribution. Originally intended or not, VOD now offer them to the synth loving public. Garage Tracks side-A contains 5 unreleased songs from 1985, all synth-drum machine, again produced with 8-track gear this time in a band spare bedroom. Anyone familiar with the band can expect more Experimental Products brilliance. Garage Tracks side-B contains six songs from a 1983 live performance. There are live versions of 4 songs from Prototype, an unreleased song, and the song Mannequin from the Glowing EP." - VOD. SOLD OUT

Price: $41.00
"Suberb synth- and wave-tunes of Fockewulf 190 including the two Italo-disco-classic 12"s Body Heat and Gitano plus more demos and so far unreleased treasures like Orient Express collected from the archive of Victor. Victor once stated: The Fockewulf 190 project was created as a shape equal to a substance, experimental analogy electronic music connected to the theatrical and mimic power of rock and the romantic and esthetic force of the electronic dance of the 80s. We translated those expressive channels with the force of a psychedelic mind folded into a magic and evocative world, an profound research into ourselves. This personal and futuristic mysticism originated the dark side of Italo disco. The publishing, 25 years later, of what should have been our first album in 1986, Microcosmos, shines a light on the sonic creativity of the Fw 190, also because its a record composed only by simple original demos; something pure and synthetic, uncontaminated by commercial compromises." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Tape Recordings 1975-1985
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "Tape Recordings 1975-1985 features work from Kevin Harrison. Kevin Harrisons music is guitar orientated. But treated and mutated. Harrison is no ordinary guitar hero: his playing shimmers like light reflected on water. His work is reminiscent of a cross between Brian Eno, Michael Rother and Eric Random. While in the ambient field, it balances a lot more in the direction of contemporary electronics and a heavier sound. Nevertheless, his influences are very clear. A minimal psychedelicist at heart, Harrisons is the music of the hypnotic state, of dream and trance. Its core is an obvious affection for the work of Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Kraftwerk and The Normal tempered with an awareness of oriental rhythms and harmonies which give the elemental electronics a warmer, human touch. With Harrisons deft handling his squeaks and buzzes, his synthesized loop tables and his drum machines "Inscrutably Obvious" seems like it will prove horribly inaccessible. But once properly investigated it offers a sparklingly seductive selection of tracks wholeheartedly recommended to anybody looking for entertainment from the avant-garde. Chas de Whalley on Harrison: "No guitar heroes next cause its Kevin Harrison. I could listen to his excellent stuff all night. What he does is guitar improvisations with the guitar put through lots of reel-to-reel echo units and other such things. This means he only has to fall over his guitar and it sounds good good good good. The result is similar to Fripp/Eno collaborations with layers of rejected guitar sounds. It sounds much better than I can be bothered to write it, if youre curious go and see him do his act." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

2010 release, edition of 600. "Shadows out of Time is a collection of three LPs with unreleased and formerly cassette-only material from Hunting Lodge, representing the first blush of their creativity, a time when each sonic experiment festered into a beautiful sore. Dark ambient, noise, power electronics, all represented here before these pigeons had holes in which to fit. One LP is comprised of the now-legendary Exhumed, which was formerly released cassette-only, heard here in better shape than ever - direct-metal mastered from the original two-track mixes. The second LP is all unreleased material, highlights of which include never-heard gems from the recordings for the promotional cassette 23 Minutes Of Murder. On the flip-side, both literally and figuratively, are the electro-disco-teckno recordings used for intermission music at Hunting Lodge live shows in 1983. The final LP contains live material which was formerly cassette-only, including tracks from At The Harrington Ballroom and S/M Operations Live, as well as much of the formerly unreleased Live At The Lodge. Oft-bootlegged, this performance is pressed here direct from the original masters, representing the two-piece early noise-unit of Hunting Lodge in harrowing live intensity. Furthermore featured in the box-set is an additional bonus 7" including studio cover version of John Wrights Stellazine Shuffle b/w Learn to Will II, formerly released on Nekrophile Rekords Beast 666 cassette compilation in 1983. These LPs and 7" are presented with period-accurate, gloriously bold, black and white artwork. Each LP comes in its own printed sleeve inside of a box printed with the Thomas Nordstrom artwork previously only seen on early Hunting Lodge stationery. Also included are liner notes by Jeff Central Chenault and recording details, including information on equipment used, and never before seen photos of live Hunting Lodge and of collectors minutiae.

“Its late 1981 and Attritions embryonic Black Prince Studio has set up in band member Ashley Niblocks bedroom in Coventry, England. Analog synthesizers, drum machines, and a primitive four-track recorder with tape echoes and spring reverbs. They would write and rehearse regularly during those early days. Niblock would also moonlight with two of his school friends, Edward Pearson and Richard Woodfield as Irsol. A different beast from the anarchic post-punk noise and rhythms of the early Attrition, Irsol was a more polished affair, and far more influenced by the electronics of, for example, Tangerine Dream. By summer 1982 they had produced their first self-released tape, First Contact, which attracted some attention from local figures, including Alan Rider, who released their second tape, Half Life, on his Adventure in Reality label in 1983, and reissuedFirst Contact in 1984. Half Life contained a side of studio recording and a side of a one-off live show at the old school -- founded in 1344 -- that they all attended. The track "Reesoning" from First Contact appeared on Volume Five of Gary Levermores legendary Third Mind five-tape compilation Rising from the Red Sand (1983).

Schnitzlers continuous working partners over the years have been Klaus Freudigmann and Wolfgang Seidel. Kluster also worked with various friends including Tangerine Dream, and , with whom Schnitzler recorded and released three of the Kluster actions on vinyl in 1971 -- Eruption, Klopfzeichen, andZwei-Osterei -- before Roedelius and Moebius went on to form Cluster. Kluster performed with regular instruments (piano, electric guitar, cello, percussion, electric organ), which were recorded with a contact microphone, transformed, manipulated, distorted, chopped-up, and conveyed by loudspeakers. The result is an exciting, raw, and roughly structured sound continuum, rich in associations skirting the edges of sound magic.

Title: Tape-Works 1981-1982
Format: 4 LP & DVD Box

Country: Germany
Price: $93.00
"2013 release. The members of seminal Melbourne-based improvising experimental group Laughing Hands and its alter ego The Invisible College were Paul Schütze, Gordon Harvey, Ian Russell, and Paul Widdicombe. Their spectrally shaded instrumental post-punk-by-way-of-post-industrial constructs were effectively post-rock before the genre existed. The group continued in several permutations until disbanding in 1982. They released two LPs (Ledge (1980) and Dog Photos (1981)) and one cassette (E E: (The Welders Bible) (1981)) on their own Adhesive label, as well as two cassettes on the Australian tape label Rash (Decisions) (Nights (1982) and The Luxery of Horns (1982, credited to The Invisible College)). This set includes the contents of all three cassettes, as well as a DVD. While the esoteric Eno-by-way-of-Dome post-punk instrumental constructs doled out across their two LPs are some of the most mesmerizing examples of this sort, their work on the tape-only releases finds them exploring a decidedly more shrouded, nocturnal, and formally abstract dimension of their universe. The two tapes issued under their heading as well as the material they issued under the pseudonym The Invisible College tease out certain territories only hinted at on the vinyl releases. Nights comprises two side-long pieces. Side As mesmerizing title-track is filled with spectral synth shadings, distant metallic clatter, and pained wails, while the B-sides "Infinite Summer" unfurls a protracted stream of stutter pulse across a vast terrain of preternatural and phantasmagoric incident. The material on E E, divided into subsections titled Vibrate, Scatter, Picture, and Splinter, spans the gap between Nights atmospheric abstractions and The Invisible Colleges more forcefully driving and art rock-ish confections, each section highlighting a facet of their cumulative praxis. Vibrate foregrounds the rhythmically forceful dimension of their aesthetic as heard on the Invisible College material, Scatter proposes a more fractured and hermetic attack that carries a whiff of Cans ethnological forgeries, Splinter explores the more nocturnal and mechanistic side of their nature, and Picture sets its sights on the cosmos with pore-penetrating widescreen tracts of alternately shearing and suspended krautrock-ish acid sound-scaping that is perhaps the epiphanic peak of their whole discography." - Vinyl-on-Demand.

Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "A vinyl reissue of The Legendary Pink Dotss Premonition, originally released on cassette in 1982. In the early 80s the whole concept of committing music to vinyl seemed like a noble but improbable dream. It was expensive and unless a label was offering, it was consigned to the experimental bands "bucket list". Cassette albums were another matter however. The Dots had chaotically joined the tape revolution with a couple of releases on their own Mirrordot label and after accidentally wiping one of the masters, decided it was something better left to "real" labels. Hence the band was delighted when Ian Dobson from Flowmotion approached them. Consequently Premonition was assembled; a combination of older and newer songs were placed in an extremely psychedelic collage with a rack of effects tuned and abused with the help of Pat Bermingham, who owned the In Phaze label and a small studio which used to belong to Pink Floyds Nick Mason. Sadly, Flowmotion ran into trouble after the release and it took a few years before the Dots actually saw a copy the original album." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

This set also includes material from the 1983 cassette Installation View.” - Vinyl-on-Demand. “Its best to consider these recordings as a homage to much admired and deeply loved music of the time; to consider these recordings as the artifacts of lessons being learned during simultaneous attempts at conceiving, writing, voicing, engineering, recording, and mixing something that might at least seem to be music. Its also best to consider that the one card that repeatedly found its way out of the Oblique Strategies deck and into my hands prevented me from erasing almost all of it: Honor thy mistake as a hidden intention." - K.

"Much of the music included in this set is exclusive to this vinyl version of Miscellany. Andrew Liles has compiled a comprehensive anthology including as much varied, interesting and unreleased material as possible. He spent many an afternoon sifting through piles of cassettes seeking the oldest and arguably most definitive pieces of music from literally hundreds of hours of tape. The earliest recordings on these discs date back to 1984. Find a New Husband was made on Liles fathers very cheap Amstrad tape-to-tape system. The tape machine ceased to work properly shortly thereafter. This track was the result or many hours of rewinding and re-playing and re-recording, and thus began Liles fascination, obsession and addiction with tape-manipulation, sound FX and recording techniques. Listening back to some of these works reminds us of the archaic and laborious fashion in which music used to be created and assembled. In hindsight the merits of working with tape compared to digital technologies seem to be the random nature of what would happen. Tape bleed, mishaps, the low-fi quality and errors seemed to give unique and often unpredictable results. Many of Andrew Liles early experimentations and accidental consequences are included in this collection. Also included are selections from his two self-released cassettes under the name Lividity. The Lividity tapes were given away to friends and sent as demos to assorted labels. Some 20 years later it is very doubtful that any of them exist other than the two remaining copies Andrew Liles has kept tucked away in some forgotten corner." -Vinyl On Demand

Format: 5 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $108.00
"Rüdiger Lorenz was a German electronic synthesist and inventor of several modular synthesizer systems, who, over three decades, produced unique, exceptional electronic soundscapes in the manner of Conrad Schnitzler, Edgar Froese, Dieter Moebius, and Hans-Joachim Roedelius. He is one of a very few outstanding artists who seem to never have received the recognition and fame they deserved for their artistic output. This five-LP box set focuses on his earliest self-released cassettes from the early 80s: Queen of Saba (1981), Silver Steps (1981), Wonderflower (1982), and Earthrise (1983), none of which have been reissued before now. Queen of Saba was also licensed and released on Werner Piepers Transmitter Cassetten, which also distributed many of Conrad Schnitzlers tape releases. Earthrise, a compilation of his early works and several newer compositions, was released on the British label YHR Tapes (York House Recordings), run by David Elliott. Rüdiger Lorenz became interested in electronic music and Moog synthesizers in the late 60s. By 1972 he had built his own first Wersi Organ, followed by various amplifiers and effects boxes. In 1977 he had constructed his first synthesizers from an Elektor Formant kit. At the time of his death in 2000, he owned 38 synthesizers including three large self-built modular systems. In the late 70s and early 80s he became a member of the IEMA (International Electronic Music Association), which was established by James Finch of The Nightcrawlers, and also began running his own Lorenz Park Studio. He then became an essential part and pioneering member of the international DIY cassette culture community in the early 80s and contributed to several INKEY$ compilation tapes and the On-Slaught series on the Idiosyncratics label. With their well-established international contacts, he and another German synthesist, Peter Schäfer, started the tape label Syntape and released more than 30 cassettes between 1981 and 1985. In 1983, he began releasing musical on vinyl via his Syncord label; many of these limited records have since become in-demand collectors items." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

“Limited edition of 300. Multi-talented autodidact musician and devoted painter Leon Lowman became interested in synthesizers when he heard ELPs "Lucky Man" in 1970. At that time Lowman was working for various recording studios and sound companies in California and with his first paycheck he made a down-payment on an ARP 2600-Synthesizer (as well as a Mediamix Joystick for pitch bending), which he still uses at the time of this release. From that point on he used whatever money he could spare to acquire music gear with which to develop and reflect his unique melodic wanderings and his beautiful, mellow, cosmic, classic club-lounge, almost easy listening and lo-fi surf synth music. Lowman wrote much of his music based on life experiences, trying to musically convey particular events, experiences, or feelings through both the music and the added natural sounds he had incorporated, such as waves, wind, or bird calls. Between 1980 and 1987 he released several tapes and a highly sought-after LP called Syntheseas. Many of his works are highly influential and ahead of their time. One can hear his ideas and sounds in later commercially successful recordings such as AIRs Moon Safari (1997).

Especially the German music he got into right from the start, buying albums from Virgin Records in London of bands like Cosmic Couriers, Klaus Schulze, Guru Guru and Amon Duul II. Given that his friends found his music taste a bit disturbing, Carl decided to do his own stuff to give him the freedom to do music he really loved i.e., electronic music. He bought a reel-to-reel, a Korg Polyphonic Ensemble, a Korg MS20 synthesizer and a Korg SQ10 Sequencer. All very limited compared to todays technology but good and interesting sounds could still be produced. Carl produced his first tapes and they found release on labels and distribution outlets. Some of the tracks on this album are from the very first releases Intervention 87 (1981) and Freewheel To Freedom (1981), which were more experimental and minimal incorporating guitar sounds. Other tracks off the albums Aksu (1980), East/West (1981) and Iridescence (1983)." - Vinyl On Demand.

Country: Germany
Price: $237.00
2012 release. "Limited edition of 500. Includes large booklet with images. This ten-LP set in a black varnished and silkscreened wooden box is a comprehensive anthology of Merzbows early works, carefully selected and mastered by Merzbow himself. Merzbow has been actively recording noise music since late 1979, releasing over 100 solo recordings and numerous collaborations since. This set focuses on Merzbows very early works from 1980-1983 on his first tape label, Lowest Music & Arts -- the predecessor to his famous ZSF Produkt label. Some of the selected material was reissued in fragments and extracts as part of the famous 50-CD Merzbox, but none of it has previously been released on vinyl. LP 1 contains Hyper Music 2, a previously unreleased recording from 1980 in the style of Metal Acoustic Music. LP 2 contains Metal Acoustic Music, originally released as C-90 cassette in very limited edition in 1981. While the A-side of this recording was featured and released on Merzbox, this LP features the B-side of the original tape, previously unreleased in any form outside of the original tape edition. LPs 3 and 4 feature the highly sought-after tape Merz Collection 007, recorded in 1980 and released in 1981, as well as the tape Tridal Production from 1981. Some parts of these recordings appear in the Merzbox, but this is also the first time that these recordings have been reissued in their entirety. LPs 5 and 6 cover Mechanization takes Command, originally released as a C-90 cassette in early 82. Again, some parts appeared in the Merzbox, but this is the first reissue of the complete set. LPs 7 and 8 are committed to the two highly sought-after tapes Solonoise 1 and Solonoise 2. While Solonoise 1 can also be found in the Merzbox, Solonoise 2 is reissued here in its complete original form for the first time. The word "solo" means "solar" and is a reference to Georges Batailles Solar Anus. LPs 9 and 10 contain Yahatahachiman and Escape Mask, two recordings from 1983 of which Merzbow is extremely proud. Both recordings represent an almost hidden side of Merzbow and show his flexibility in the variation of noise. They are a true hidden treasure of Merzbow music. Merzbow had dismissed them for years due to their guitar rock appeal and rhythmic drive, but it is exactly this style and its sound-wall of psychedelic atonal guitar-noise in combination with the technoid drum machine that catches the listeners ear decades later." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Postcards 1981-1986
Format: Double LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $34.00
"2012 release. Limited edition of 500. Gen Ken Montgomery, a New York-based visual artist and sound composer, is absolutely genuine; he has no training in traditional music or art. He was never a follower of any direction or school. Instead he founded his own school of off-beat DIY-electronics, driven by irresistible curiosity and ingenuous enthusiasm for sound experimentation and process-oriented performance. His music is dense and full of polyrhythms and counter harmonies with singular control over layers of randomly pulsing, bleeping synthesizers and drum boxes. As a composer in the early 80s Montgomery created multi-channel sound works often performed in total darkness. He began his sound explorations with electronic toys, cheap synthesizers, and household gadgetry, for which he had a special fascination. His ever-present objects of affection are electric machines including an ice crusher ("Icebreaker"), aquarium pump, refrigerator, shoe shine machine, hand massager, and laminator ("Laminator Model 2291"). Postcards contains 41 (!) tracks. Twenty-two tracks on the first LP, compiled from his first tape, Gen Ken & Equipment (1981); his second tape, Collaborations (1982); his third official tape, Kalckreuth Keks (1986), recorded at Conrad Schnitzlers studio; and several live recordings under the name KMZ with Michael Zodorozny of Crash Course in Science. The second LP includes 19 songs from the fourth official tape, Beatmusik (1981-84) released by Sound of Pig, New York; songs from his fifth release, Room to Roam (1984); and three previously unreleased tracks from the same time period, one also as KMZ. Montgomerys activity in international cassette culture networks led to relationships and collaborations with such luminaries of the underground music scene as Conrad Schnitzler, Giancarlo Toniutti, Chop Shop, David Lee Myers (Arcane Device), Al Margolis, John Hudak, Francisco López, AMK, Istvan Kantor (Monty Cantsin), GX Jupitter-Larsen (The Haters), Rod Summers (VEC), Maurizio Bianchi, Masami Akita (Merzbow), CM von Hausswolff, and Leif Elggren, among others. "Cassettes were an inexpensive and practical way of getting feedback from the developing international community of sound/noise/music experimenters. Cassettes allowed for spontaneous freedom and experimentation without the burden and commitment of releasing vinyl which was expensive to mail and costly to press in editions of less than 500" --Montgomery. Montgomery used the earliest Casio keyboards, self-made electronic gadgets, cheap drum boxes, and his favorite instrument, the Korg MS-20 synthesizer. The mixture of noise, pop, rock, electronic, and soundscapes on one cassette show how musical genres hadnt yet become entrenched in the cassette culture scene." - Vinyl-on-Demand.

In 1980 he established his own label, Anvil Creations, and in the following four years released approximately 20 tapes of solo and collaborative works he had recorded between 1973 and 1983. His solo work of that era bridges abstract electronic music with synthesizers and Mellotron and more psychedelic rock-based material he had primarily produced in the early to mid 70s.

Moore was also very active in James Finchs International Electronic Music Association (IEMA), which started in 1979.

Its primarily a groove-session percussion album with keyboards. Putting three musicians together from different backgrounds was an experiment all its own. Mark Chance was a rock bass guitarist who was integrating his own style of playing with what was a cohesion of jazz and electronic music. Sort of a free-form improvisational jam session with the drummer honed in to every lick the keyboard player emitted. This is really a collaboration between Jeter and Moore, who came from two different backgrounds, yet were willing to try something different.

Ken Moore was the man behind those tape compilations and their distribution. This A-side of this LP covers the first sessions between Rosenzweig and Moore, with guest bassist Mark Chance, recorded in 1976 at Anvil Creations Studio. Using analog monophonic synthesizers, Rosenzweig (MicroMoog synth, electric piano, and Mellotron) and Moore (MiniMoog synth, ARP String Ensemble, and Lowrey organ) created what would become Our Own Universe. This was cutting-edge stuff in the late 1970s, and the material here proudly stands the test of time. The B-side covers the pairs second meeting, without a bassist, from about five years later. They spent an entire month recording a series of avant-garde sessions of totally improvised music that they called Eccentric Projections. Some are synthesizer works, while some were created with guitar, violin, drums, bells, cymbals, and harp -- but its all experimental in nature. Rosenzweig used MicroMoog synthesizer, ARP Omni II, electric guitar, piano, violin, and various percussion of all sorts; Moore used MiniMoog synthesizer, ARP Odyssey, ARP String Ensemble, piano, balafon, floor drums, open piano harp, and percussion of all sorts.

"Limited edition of 200. Standalone edition of Vinyl-on-Demands expanded reissue of Abu Nidal by Muslimgauze, included in its 2014 Chasing the Shadow of Bryn Jones 1983-1988 box set and originally released on Limited Editions in 1987. The set focuses on the early output of the Manchester, England-based Bryn Jones, who produced nearly 200 albums between 1982 and 1998, before he passed away in 1999 at age 37. An anti-colonialist at heart, Jones dedicated most of his music to Muslim-world struggles during his lifetime, such as Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, the Iran/Iraq war, and the Lebanon civil war, to name a few, with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Jones was pro-Palestine, often evidenced on album and track titles as well as dedications. Muslimgauze music can be considered a sonic treatise on Muslim-world conflicts in the form of exotic soundscape narratives, driving musical protest and rhythmic assertion. As a side-effect of being prolific, Jones worked in a variety of styles and successfully melded traditional ethnic music of places he championed with Western urban stylings such as techno, breakbeat, and dub. Some credit him as being the "Godfather of Dubstep." Perhaps Joness musical brilliance shone brightest as an audio editor who deftly juxtaposed unlikely sounds in ways that now cannot be envisioned otherwise. In 1992 Jones wrote a manifesto about his music and influence; decades later, his vision is more relevant than ever. "The Principle Influence behind Muslimgauze is the political facts of the middle-east, though support of the PLO is the main Backbone. There are no musical influences, only political facts and figureheads e.g. Arafat, Gaddafi, Bhutto, Khaled etc. Such things are the starting point from which Muslimgauze music is taken. We have just (Gulf War) had a small skirmish in the middle-east, this area of the world is the most important quiet soon. Every countries going to have to choose which side it is on, to help free the people of Palestine. . . . There is a lot more to Muslimgauze than just a few pieces of music on a record or CD. There are no Bands around who I go out of my way to hear/see, the main-music I listen to is authentic and unable to be pigeonholed, people seem to buy what there told to, also they hear what other people have decided is good.

An anti-colonialist at heart, Jones dedicated most of his music to Muslim-world struggles during his lifetime, such as Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, the Iran/Iraq war, and the Lebanon civil war, to name a few, with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Jones was pro-Palestine, often evidenced on album and track titles as well as dedications. Muslimgauze music can be considered a sonic treatise on Muslim-world conflicts in the form of exotic soundscape narratives, driving musical protest and rhythmic assertion. As a side-effect of being prolific, Jones worked in a variety of styles and successfully melded traditional ethnic music of places he championed with Western urban stylings such as techno, breakbeat, and dub. Some credit him as being the "Godfather of Dubstep." Perhaps Joness musical brilliance shone brightest as an audio editor who deftly juxtaposed unlikely sounds in ways that now cannot be envisioned otherwise. In 1992 Jones wrote a manifesto about his music and influence; decades later, his vision is more relevant than ever. "The Principle Influence behind Muslimgauze is the political facts of the middle-east, though support of the PLO is the main Backbone. There are no musical influences, only political facts and figureheads e.g. Arafat, Gaddafi, Bhutto, Khaled etc. Such things are the starting point from which Muslimgauze music is taken. We have just (Gulf War) had a small skirmish in the middle-east, this area of the world is the most important quiet soon. Every countries going to have to choose which side it is on, to help free the people of Palestine. . . . There is a lot more to Muslimgauze than just a few pieces of music on a record or CD. There are no Bands around who I go out of my way to hear/see, the main-music I listen to is authentic and unable to be pigeonholed, people seem to buy what there told to, also they hear what other people have decided is good. Go Out and Discover." - Bryn Jones, February 29, 1992, Manchester.

"Luigi Russolo is widely credited as being the first major noise theorist with his 1913 Art Of Noise manifesto. And, of course, composers like Arnold Schoenberg, John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen played their part in breaking with classically established harmonic systems. Lou Reeds epochal Metal Machine Music signposted a way of breaking free of the impasse created by the endgames of the mid-20th century avant garde... But contemporary noise artists like The New Blockaders and Einsturzende Neubauten were the first to progress from the use of noise as assault on tonality to the development of a rich, complex language capable of subtelties of shades and nuance without sacrificing any of its feral power or ability to unlock repressed personae in the listener..." - The Wire.

Price: $120.00
"Lest We Forget is a collection compiled from the earliest recordings by Nocturnal Emissions, a group founded by Nigel Ayers, his brother Daniel Ayers and Caroline K in 1980. It is comprised of material previously only available on cassettes as well as tracks recorded under their earlier name, The Pump. The Nocturnal Emissions were active in what has been known as cassette culture and explored the medium of underground cassette exchange in parallel with their better known vinyl releases and live performances. They used the available technology of the day in a spirit which seems to have anticipated modern social networking through the Internet. This series of documents offers a rare glimpse at audio sketchbooks; raw, unfinished works-in-progress and live performances by the group. It covers a wide range of musical style by a group who were committed to radical experimentation in both form and content. The box set also contains some previously unreleased tracks from the early 80s which sound surprisingly contemporary and fresh. The group has undergone several mutations since these early recordings and continued into 21st century as a solo project by Nigel Ayers. Caroline K left the group in 1984 and produced one solo album before adopting a more private life. She remained a good friend and lived in England, Sri Lanka, and finally in Italy. She married Danny Ayers in 2001. While the edit of this collection was being assembled, she took ill with leukemia and died during hospital treatment a few days later. Carolines distinctively moody electronics, vocals and bass guitar feature strongly on these albums. We offer this box set as a tribute to her life and work."

In 1981, Usher and Chelsea formed Norma Loy. The band launched its first EP, the first one of its cold-wave-kind in France. Norma Loy searched for their identity and multiplied there experiences on the side, leading to the creation in 1984 of their own label, CPM, which produced a second EP distributed by New Rose: Psychic Altercation whose psychoanalytic rock gave the setting for later productions. CPM developed its own philosophy and centralized the different activities of the group (musical and non musical ones: (photo)graphic ones, literature, video making, dance etc...) and controls the entire artistic production (recordings, LP covers, song books...). A particular emphasis was drawn on the concerts mixing music and slide projections. Over the past 25 years, many excellent records have been released such as Rewind/T.Vision (86), Sacrifice (88) and the last part of the trilogy called Rebearth."

"This material from Portion Control clearly demonstrates their early experimentation at the advent of analog electronic machines. The eclectic material ranges from cassette port-a-studio material, recorded in Peckham and Kennington, South London, to high-end studio recordings. Portion Controls punk roots are on display, as the group demonstrates unrivalled creativity and bridges the gap between UK industrial, early ambient, and the formative stages of electronic dance music. The music features rising arpeggiators, proto bass lines (a true Portion Control signature), dark sound design, and recurring beats and rhythms -- many elements that became the bedrock of future darker electronic music. During this highly-charged period, Portion Control established themselves at the forefront of the formative underground UK electronics scene. This double LP contains a selection of tracks from the Raise the Pulse12" (1983), the Hit the Pulse 12" (1983), the ..Step Forward LP (1984), the Rough Justice 12" (1984), theGo-Talk 12" (1984), the Great Divide LP (1986), thePsycho-Bod Saves the World LP (1986), and thePurge 12" (1986), as well as a previously unreleased tape from 1982 called Kiss Kiss - Sex and live recordings from a 1984 performance in Amsterdam." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"It all started sometime at the dawn of the 80s by two Canadian brothers, Darrin and Stephen Huss while living with their parents in Edmonton, Alberta. The first and only synthesizer based act in our whole region, were joined by third member Dwayne Goettel and subsequently formed the band Psyche. A combination of horror and electronics that in the area of Western Canada was completely unheard of and would continue to be considered quite shocking until the music finally caught on. When the Huss family moved to Waterloo, Ontario, Darrin and Stephen took time out from their school work to lay down what would become this official debut album of Psyches music. With fearlessly experimental electro-titles such as Children Carry Knives, Psychic Vampire, Maggots, and The Brain Collapses. Under the disguised names Evan Panic (Darrin), and Anthony Red (Stephen) Psyche, with release on hand prepared themselves for a proper onslaught on the further unsuspecting Canadian audience, and the rest of the world.

The tracks chosen on this box-set are taken directly from the original 4 track cassettes. These recordings are sometimes copies of complete mixes that found their way onto released albums, sometimes sub-mixes and parts of mixes, and sometimes elements that were never used in any released material.

Title: Premonitions 1980-1985
Format: 4 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $85.00
"2014 release. Limited edition of 500. Robert Richs solo and collaborative recordings have proven extremely influential on a range of new school ambient and experimental artists. Although almost a decade younger than his cohorts, Richs association with the West Coast scene of space-music pioneers such as Steve Roach, Kevin Braheny, and Michael Stearns also makes him one of the few of that generation to have interfaced creatively with the new wave of experimental electronic composers. A northern California native, Rich began building his own analog synthesizers in the late 70s before attending Stanford University, where he completed a degree in psychology. While at Stanford, Richs involvement in the universitys prestigious Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics expanded his interest in digital synthesis, and his Bay Area location brought him in contact with a wide range of non-traditional and non-Western musical ideas. Richs innovation of the all-night "sleep concerts" during this period derived from his interests in psychophysiology and sleep research, and helped solidify an aesthetic focus on psychoacoustics, perceptible in early recordings such as Sunyata (1982), Trances (1984), and Drones (1984). Richs mid-period works such as Rainforest (1989) and Propagation (1994) combined that interest with more recognizable electro-acoustic elements (Rich plays a wide range of instruments, from synths and effects racks to lap steel guitar, hand drums, and flute), but the influence of digital sound manipulation also moved increasingly to the fore. Inspired by the more textural works of artists like SPK and Throbbing Gristle, Richs interest in the edgier side of electronic composition has also earned him a reputation among fans of gothic, industrial, and dark ambient, made most obvious by his collaboration in 1995 with Brian Williams of Lustmord. In addition to his more ambient-leaning works, Rich released albums with the experimental pop band Amoeba, and in 2013 with Meridiem. He has been influential in spreading interest in harmonic tuning systems (just intonation), works closely with music software and hardware companies in product development, creates sound design for film and television, and teaches a university course on audio mastering. This four-LP box set focuses on Richs early stage of composition and performance, from 1979-85. Most of this music is previously unreleased, or came out on limited cassettes on the UK Auricle label or the Swedish Psychout Productions label, which later became Multimood, and released Richs Numena LP in 1986." - Vinyl-on-Demand.

“Limited edition of 200. Composer and multi-instrumentalist Steve Roach (born in 1955 in California) is a longstanding leader in contemporary electronic music, drawing on the beauty and power of the earths landscapes to create lush, meditative soundscapes influential on the emergence of ambient and trance. At the age of 20, inspired by the music of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, and Vangelis, he taught himself to play synthesizer. After being a member of Doug Lynners Moebius in the late 70s and early 80s, he began recording as a solo artist in 1982, and self-released his classic album Now that year, with distribution by Eurock. One year later Roach released another classic recording on Domino Records called Traveler. As with Don Slepian, Roach then signed to Fortuna Records and released several LPs and tapes. With Structures from Silence (1984) his music began taking enormous strides; the albums expansive and mysterious atmosphere was inspired directly by the natural beauty of the southwestern U.S. With subsequent works, including 1986s three-volume Quiet Music series, Roach honed his approach, developing his dense, swirling textures and hypnotic rhythms akin to environmental sound sculptures. In 1988, inspired by Peter Weirs 1977 film The Last Wave, Roach journeyed to the Australian outback and gathered field recordings of aboriginal life for what would become his widely acknowledged masterpiece, the double album Dreamtime Return (1988). A year later, he teamed up with percussionist Michael Shrieve and guitarist David Torn for The Leaving Time, an experiment in ambient jazz. After relocating to the desert outskirts of Tucson, Arizona, Roach established his own recording studio, Timeroom, and in the years to follow grew increasingly prolific, creating both as a solo artist and in tandem with artists including Robert Rich, Michael Stearns, Jorge Reyes, and Kevin Braheny -- in all, close to two dozen major works in the 1990s alone, all of them located at different points on the space-time continuum separating modern technology and primitive music. Since 2000 his enormous creative output, live concerts, and sonic innovations remain at a high level. This LP includes all the tracks from the legendary debut tape Now, plus the previously unreleased "Emotion Revealed.”” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"Limited edition of 400. SPK was an Australian industrial band formed in 1978 in Sydney by Graeme Revell and Neil Hill. By 1983 the duo had been joined by other artists including Sinan Leong, Brian Williams (Lustmord), John Murphy, Karel van Bergen, Mike Wilkins, and James Pinker. During its early period from 1978 to first half of 1983, SPK was without a doubt a groundbreaking protagonist for the whole industrial music movement to come, with such releases as Information Overload Unit and Leichenschrei. SPK can be considered as influential as other industrial legends including Throbbing Gristle, Clock DVA, and Cabaret Voltaire -- there is no way to avoid this band when talking about the industrial movement. This deluxe box set, containing seven LPs and one 7" in a deluxe book-like folder and outer holder, collects all of SPKs early works and documents the bands history prior to Graeme Revell signing with WEA and taking a slightly different, more commercial path with the bands musical output. Includes the following LPs: Information Overload Unit (1980), The 7" Tracks (1979-1981), Leichnschrei (1982), Backing-Tracks for Leichenschrei (1982), Other Studio and Compilation-Tracks (1982-1983), London Heaven 31.10.1982 (Mixing Desk Master)/Tracks from London Electric Ballroom 26.April 1983 (Audience Copy), and Backing-Tracks for Electric Ballroom and Brixton Ace Show, plus a bonus 7".

He left Hawaii and came to Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ, where he was "Artist in Residence" in computer music for the next two years. In 1980 he released three more cassette tapes on the Hawaiian record label Plumeria Productions: The Sea of Bliss, New Dawn, and Open Spaces. In 1981 he self-released his first LP, Computer Dont Breakdown. In 1982 he signed to Fortuna Records, who brought his music to a much wider audience with several releases throughout the 80s. The same year he released a collaborative tape with Lauri Paisley as Synarios called Uncontrolled Voltage in a classic electronica style. Slepian combines unique skills in music and electronics with a lifetime of improvised keyboard music performance. Born into a scientific family, Slepian showed both musical and technical talent early in life. In 1968, he programmed computers and built electronic music circuitry, sculpting sound with classic electronic music studio tape techniques. Starting in 1972, he was a tester on the early internet as a member of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). He was also a synthesizer soloist with the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra, Music Director of Honolulu Theatre for Youth, and ARP Synthesizer Sales Rep for Hawaii. His CV could go on for another page.

“Pekka Airaksinen is a Finnish composer of electronic music. Airaksinen formed his first band, The Sperm, in late 1967.

Mallander, Markus Heikkerö, Mattijuhani Koponen, Nikke Nikamo, and Peter Widén. By 1970 Airaksinen had started his own label, O Records, to produce and distribute his solo LPs, including One Point Music (1972); The Sperms Shh! Heinäsirkat(1970); and a 1972 LP by his free-jazz-dominated project Samsa Trio (together with Helander and Koponen) -- all included here. Live performances by Airaksinen and The Sperm often took the form of confrontational performance art; two of The Sperms members were arrested for simulating sexual intercourse and screening pornographic films. Following The Sperms breakup in the mid-1970s, Airaksinen turned to Buddhism, but kept producing music in the years to come, integrating Roland 808 drum machines into his music and releasing classic LPs like 1984s Buddhas of Golden Light (ALE 004LP).Works 1968-1976 contains The Sperms 3rd ErectionEP (1968) with three bonus tracks, Shh!

Artist: STORM BUGS
Title: Supplementary Benefit
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $23.50
"Side 1 of the LP comprises full length versions of the the first two Storm Bugs singles; namely the 5 track Table Matters EP (1980) and the Metamorphose single (1981). Whilst tracks from these singles have appeared on compilations before, this is the first time they are being presented in their entirety. This means the first re-issue of the spoof industrial rockabilly track Tin and the vocal version of Make Customer Matter. The tracks have been digitally re-mastered from virgin un-played copies of the two discs. While side 1 displays Storm Bugs now infamous post-punk DIY sound with much use of scratched vinyl, disemboweled radios and home made electronics, side 2 of the LP contains tracks made exclusively with the unique British synthesizer, the VCS3. The VCS3 has a matrix pin patch bay in which any module can be connected to any other module, resulting in complex feedback loops and unexpected modulations. The VCS3 tracks which include Hodge, Slip Slap and Hiemal (And She Blew) are all taken from original Snatch Tapes cassette releases. This is the first time most have appeared on vinyl, and of course this means the gorgeous heavyweight VOD vinyl we have come to know and love." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Mokoyaro 1982-1985
Format: 5 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $115.00
2012 release. "Limited edition of 500. This box is a complete anthology of the musical output and works by Albert Klein and Antonios Stratis as Stratis, as well as Kleins project with Philip Tesch, 96 Eyes, all recorded between 1982-86. It contains all of their original tape recordings released on their own label Creative Tapes (later called Temporary Music) between 1982 and 1984 (Exotic, New Face, Musica da Ballo, Film Musik, and Raging Beauty), which they also licensed to Colin Potters ICR label. It also contains all of their compilation contributions from 1983-86, originally released on various vinyl and tape labels such as Bain Total, X-Tract, Mystery Hearsay, Noel (founded by Oscar Smit (Vinyl Magazine)), and many more. All in all, 64 beautiful minimal synth tracks ranging from NDW-Classics like "Die Kur" through minimal robotic synth pop; German electro; cold wave classics like "Herzlos" and "She Is Dancing"; sci-fi and future-obsessed tracks that could have been composed for movies like Blade Runner (1982), Flash Gordon (1980), or Tron (1982); and even traditional progressive German electronic music from the Tangerine Dream school as well as tracks recalling Chris & Cosey and Yello, including "Technotow," "Foggy Weather," and "Nightfly." Masterfully played analog equipment with jazz and funk influences and superb basslines ("Musica da Ballo," "Mezzanotte," "Dance"). As if this is not enough, one can even hear tracks with Eastern electro vibes and Arabian melodies and vocal samples echoing in the background, sometimes bringing to mind Bryn Joness Muslimgauze. "Although the role of Stratis in the 80s was obscure in commercial terms, the ambassadorial significance of his self owned label Temporary Music was vital in introducing Northern American artists to what has now grown into a flourishing German electro scene and vice versa." --Mark Lane, Chain D.L.K.

Artist: TASS 2
Title: Unterhaltung
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Minimal electronics has a few different faces. There is a rather poppy version of the genre but also a more experimental version with early industrial influences. This record by TASS 2 is for sure one that belongs to the experimental style. The sounds on this album are raw, noisy and dark. Some comparisons to early Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and Gerechtigkeitsliga can be made, but TASS 2 is more typical minimal electronics then these artists. Titles like Stahlgeburt and Muzac speak for themselves. Best tracks are the dark pulsating Unterhaltung and Tunnelmensch. If you want to hear some authentic minimal electronics that are harsh and intense, this lp is a must have." Last copies of this 2005 release. Numbered edition of 500.

Artist: TAZARTES, GHEDALIA
Title: Works 1977-1979
Format: 4 LP Box Set + 10"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $148.00
"4LP-Box with 10" Tazartes Transports, Tazartes, Diaspora, Une Eclipse Totale De Soleil, and Quelque Part Quelquun. The French artist and autodidact Ghedalia Tazartes who is born in Paris in 1947 is a true nomad spending more than 30 years within musical practice and experimentation. Ghedalia is the orchestra and a pop group all in one person: the self is multitude and others, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. The extra-European music opens the ear to Ghedalias intra-European exotism. The permanent metamorphosis is a principle of composition; it escapes control, refuses classification, diametrical to the purists of synthetic culture and technocrates of noise. He wanders through music from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Utilizing magnetic tape recorders, 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. This box concentrates on his early works from 1977-1979 and his four officially released vinyl-LPs plus a 10" of an unreleased work from 1978. All the material is superbly remastered for vinyl by Anders Peterson of www.ghostsounds.net pushing the overall quality and dimension in sound to an amazing new level and experience." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"Third Door From The Left was a project formed by Raye Calouri (now in the band Hydra) and Kevin Thorne (We Be Echo). Both met at the TG/Cabaret Voltaire gig in 1978 and decided to join forces and make their own kind of music.

Artist: THOSE LITTLE ALIENS & THIS LITTLE ALIEN
Title: Recordings 1980-1981
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $30.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "Recordings 1980-1981 is a compilation featuring Those Little Aliens & This Little Alien. There are several components that would contribute to what would become Those Little Aliens & This Little Aliens and the zine/labels Flowmotion, Image 341 and Un-Ltd Abilities, all run by British DIY protagonists Ian Dobson and Gordon Hope. The first of these came with the advent of punk and especially the "Anarchy Tour" which made its much-delayed debut in their home town of Leeds in December 1976 and introduced Ian Dobson to a scene that threw him into wholeheartedly as a seventeen year old looking for something different. With the "anybody can do it" ethos in mind, he invested in a cheap electric guitar and a drum kit. As the 1-2-3 of punk became either increasingly repetitive or commercialized, the drum kit was sold and the guitar was left to gather dust until early 1978, when an unlikely meeting in a record store with an intriguing sounding album in an almost plain white sleeve would turn Dobsons preconceptions of what music should be on its head. That album, Throbbing Gristles The Second Annual Report (IRL 001CD/LP, 1977), seemed to dispense with the ethos of "This is a chord, this is another, this is a third. Now form a band" altogether and suggested that those strange noises from a guitar were worth exploring. The advent of affordable monophonic/duophonic synths that didnt take up an entire room was also important. The recordings collected here using the Korg MS20, the Octave Cat, the legendary, but somewhat troublesome Wasp as well as the Korg SQ10 sequencer and the Boss Dr. Rhythm DR55. Recording was via a Tandberg 10x10 stereo recorder, Teac A108 Sync cassette deck through a Tensai 2030 amp, apart from the three compilation tracks which were recorded at the wonderful Colin Potters, a 4-track studio near York. All of this would have travelled no further than a bedroom in Harehills, Leeds without the humble compact audio cassette which, via a process known as "Magnitizdat", popularized by non-government approved bands in Soviet Russia, enabled the recopying and distribution of music for a minimal outlay, usually just a blank cassette, and stamps for the return postage. This release features the aforementioned compilation tracks along with tracks from the cassette releases Incident in Moderan (1980), Variable (1980) and Synthesizer Specialist (1980)." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Artist: TI-THO
Title: s/t
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $30.00
“Christina Marisa Calcagno and Thomas Stelter, who recorded as the Hamburg new wave duo Ti-Tho in the early- and mid-80s, met when Calcagno was 13 and Stelter was teaching guitar to her friend Oliver. Calcagno and Oliver were in a band called Tempelfreuden, together with Markus Lipka and Johan Pop; Stelter had been following the band and going to their gigs, and eventually asked Calcagno sing in a project he was working on. Calcagno agreed, and began playing keyboard, writing lyrics, and singing with Stelter. During their first rehearsal the duo didnt have any lyrics in mind, so Calcagno picked up Die große Überfahrt, a 1975 volume of the Asterixcomic book series, and improvised. The result was their first recorded track, "Asterix" (included here), with many crazy lyrics and compositions to follow. The music scene in Germany, and especially the rising neue Deutsche welle (NDW), was very open-minded, and received even the craziest projects with open ears. Ti-Tho wrote lyrics based on experiences of everyday life and combined elements of traditional, flamenco, and punk musics... Everything was possible, and nothing was off-limits. One of the duos very first fans and admirers was Alfred Hilsberg, who was running the highly influential ZickZack label and writing for Sounds magazine. He produced and released Ti-Thos first 7", Traumtänzer, in 1982, both sides of which are included here, and got them a deal with Polydor to release three more 7"s and one 12", plus compilation-contributions for Polydor and ZickZack -- most of these tracks are included here. An LP produced in 1985 by famous producer Tom Dokoupil (Siluetes 61, The Wirtschaftswunder, Die Radierer, Die Partei...) is still waiting for release at the time of this writing. Ti-Tho made several TV-appearances and even music videos in the early-to-mid-80s. They also produced a musical,Dodona, which was performed at the Planetarium Hamburg. Sadly, moving to a major label pushed them in a commercial direction and suppressed their wonderful simplicity and artistic freedom. The pairs interest in the project waned; Calcagno began concentrating on her art and Stelter moved to the countryside, producing tracks for Calcagno to sing over when she was ready, but, unfortunately, the reunion never happened.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Artist: TIETCHENS, ASMUS
Title: 4K7+
Format: 5 CD Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $56.00
"Asmus Tietchens is a German electronic synthesist and musician whose interests in experimental music and musique concrète began during childhood. He began recording sound experiments in 1965 with electronic musical instruments, synthesizers, and tape loops. In the 1970s he met producer Okko Bekker, and the two formed a decades-long partnership. In 1980 Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream heard a recording of Tietchenss music and offered to produce an album; the result was the 1980 release of Nachtstücke (BB 155CD/LP), which was followed by several releases on the legendary German label Sky Records between 1980 and 1983. At the same time, Tietchens also began releasing on several international cassette labels. He released Musik Aus Der Grauzone (1981) and Musik An Der Grenze (1982) on the British YHR Tapes (York House Recordings) and Musik Im Schatten (1982) and Musik Unter Tage (1983) on the American label Aeon. These four outstanding limited tape releases, now highly in-demand, are included in this five-CD set, an expanded reissue of a four-LP set released in 2007. The fifth CD, Musik Von Der Halde, contains additional audio material recorded during the 70s, including the two tracks included on a bonus 7" with a limited edition of the original vinyl release of 4K7. Except for the tracks from that 7", all of the material on Musik Von Der Halde is previously unreleased. While Tietchenss recordings from before 1984 (including the recordings found on this set) feature accessible synthesized music, his focus shifted to more abstract sound-collages, as can be heard on Formen Letzter Hausmusik, released in 1984 on Nurse With Wounds label United Dairies. This set chronicles the transitional phase between the poppy Sky releases and the more noise-based style of releases like Formen Letzter Hausmusik. Tietchens later pursued "absolute music" through an almost mathematical process of rigid formal exercises. With strong ties to Karlheinz Stockhausens early electronic work, Tietchens started specializing in irregular patterns of sonic abstractions suspended in gray drones to create cold textural space, void of external reference." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Such Heavy Conviction: Recordings 1981-1983
Format: 5 LP Box/7"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $115.00
"Limited edition of 500. Tone Set (Galen Herod and Greg Horn) was an Arizona minimal synth duo that existed from 1981 to 1983. Their early sound mixed analog synthesizers and gritty drum machines with tapes of found speech. This was the sound of their first release, a 1982 cassette called Cals Ranch recorded with almost no vocals at The Center for Advanced Studies and released through the Zia record store in Tempe, AZ. In 1982, Tone Set contributed the track "Out! Out! Out!" to Placebo Records Amuck compilation (PLA-103), which also featured Meat Puppets, and Sun City Girls (the duo also contributed a track called "Happy People" under their Happy People alias). Vocals started to become a more prominent part of their sound by the time they recorded their Calibrate EP, released in February 1983 on Pegna Records (peg one). The first side featured three pop songs -- "Life is Busy" and "Slim," both sung by Herod, and "Living In Another Land," sung by Horn. The second side of the EP came from the Cals Ranch sessions. The duo also performed as Life Is Busy, The Art Farmers, and The Special Eds as outlets for their different types of songwriting styles, from ambient to New York Downtown-type material, with the Life Is Busy repertoire collecting their synthpop songs. A video for "Life is Busy" was produced from found footage, just like the vocals of most of their songs. It was shown on Videobeat and once on MTVs Basement Tapes, where, despite the presence of Mark Mothersbaugh (DEVO) as one of the judges, it didnt get enough votes for rotation, but it was licensed for six months on Cinemax in 1983. That year, each member began releasing solo works, leaving many previously unreleased recordings behind (62 recordings in total), which now finally find their well-deserved release on Vinyl-on-Demand. Such Heavy Conviction: Recordings 1981-1983 includes the contents of Cals Ranch and Calibrate (plus previously unreleased songs from the Calibrate session), and additional material collected as Masters of Funk, Unreleased Classic Tone Set, The Last Tone Set, The Earliest Tone Set, The Alternate Cals Ranch, and The Single, spread over five LPs and a 7". A must-have for serious fans and collectors of 80s minimal/synth. Several promotional videos for this box set are available at Youtube." - Vinyl On Demand.

Title: The Early Tapes Period
Format: Triple LP & 10" Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $77.00
"Box set of Giancarlo Toniuttis 3 early works Wechselwirkung, Metánárkôsis, Das Todesantlitz which have all been published by Toniutti on cassette tapes in 1982-83 in a very limited numbered edition. The box also includes a 10" vinyl EP with previously unreleased tracks from that same very early period (1981-84). This work represents his early musical-work as solo composer. 1982-83 was the period, and experiments with early electronics, found objects, rough percussion and noise were the attitudes that coalesce into his first 3 cassette works found on this box. This past time becomes part of the future when historically contextualized. Early electronics, acoustic objects and the beginning of a form of structuralism was the mélange of that young mind. It will come with a booklet including an essay about the history of the period, notes and data." - Vinyl on Demand.

Title: Synth Pop Art
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $30.00
“The Toy Shop was initially a minimal synthpop-based solo project for Leeds-based vocalist, keyboardist, and guitarist Paul Klein. He released the single The Maze in 1981 before moving to Sheffield and teaming up with Oldham-born keyboardist Philip Walsh in 1982. Their first gig together was in the Star/Websters inaugural Battle of the Bands competition in May of that year; they went on to win the competition and courted attention from major record labels for a while afterward. The guys played a handful of gigs including supporting slots forDead or Alive, A Flock of Seagulls, Nico, and Dr. Feelgood. After signing to Towerbell Records, they recorded four songs but only two were ever released, as the Attack Decade 7" in 1984. After Towerbell decided not to renew their contract, Klein and Walsh drifted apart, and Klein began to record solo again. He released the Give Me Lip-Lock I Love You single in 1986 before moving on to other projects. At the time of this release, Klein lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he records material for his Psykik Voltsproject and hopes to work on more Toy Shop songs in the future. Walsh is believed to be living in Sofia, Bulgaria, where his musical exploits are unknown. This LP (with 7") collects tracks from the groups singles and other sources, including both Kleins solo work and the duo tracks.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Artist: UN-KOMMUNITI
Title: Black Dwarf Wreckordings 83-85
Format: 4 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $93.00
“2013 release. Un-Kommuniti (sometimes also called Un-Kommunity or Thee Un-Kommuniti) was an early-to-mid-80s project run by Tim Gane with support of Joe Manning, Vince "Van Hire" Adams,Dave "Smut" Smit, and Pete Levy. Tim Gane went on to achieve renown with his band Stereolab and his participation in the band McCarthy in the late 80s. Un-Kommuniti ran their own tape label, Black Dwarf. The group was interested in musical alchemy and the result of this approach in the creation of their music is an incredible mix of psychedelic elements paired with the heaviest power electronics and noise sound-walls, leading the listening to the ultimate psychedelic journey. People familiar with the music of Stereolab will definitely recognize the roots of their musical output in this four-LP box set. They were active from 1983 until 1987 and released on numerous cassette culture labels including Freedom in a Vacuum, Broken Flag, Selbstmord Organización, Cause for Concern, Sound of Pig, and more. Besides their Brutality of Fact 7", released on Cause for Concern in 1984, they just had two other vinyl releases -- contributions to the compilations Freedom in a Vacuum (1987) and Statement (Broken Flag, 1984). This is the ultimate chance to enjoy a musical journey with almost four hours of carefully selected tape tracks by Un-Kommuniti. All the tracks selected for this box were recorded between 1983 and 85 and were previously only released on the groups own Black Dwarf label. Includes tracks from Black Dwarf(BDRS1), Doktrine (BDC1), Overliberated/Live in the Shithouse (BDW 06), The Prime Advantage (BDC10),Anarchist Bingo Hall/Soundtracks (BDC11), Sense of Unmaking (BDC12), Dhol Chants (BDC14), and Ex-Oblivione (BDC17), as well as the compilations Faith Will Never Die...

Title: The Lung Function Years: Solo & Side-Projects To Click Click
Format: 5 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $115.00
Limited edition of 333. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "The Lung Function Years gives an insight into Adrian and Derek Smiths musical legacy from 1982 to 1986 focusing on their Lung Function label, solo work and side projects Half Nervous/Those Nervous Surgeons, EFF (Eject Or Fast Forward) and Click Click. In 1976, Adrian got a decent tape machine and recorded everything he ever created. From 1977 to 1980, and before starting the Lung Function Label, Adrian and Derek had the post-punk project Those Nervous Surgeons (Adrian Smith - guitar/synth/vocals; Tim Wilson - bass; Derek Smith - drums; Mark Turney - guitar) and Half Nervous (Adrian Smith - synth/vocals; Derek Smith - drums/designs/direction). In 1980, Adrian took possession of Tim Wilsons Wasp synth and Akai reel-to-reel. He worked alone and eventually asked others to help expand on the music. From 1980 to 1981, the brothers were very productive, creating the skeletons of songs which would be shaped into the music of Click Click. But before this, Adrian started to release music on cassette under the names Another View and later on as EFF. In 1981, changing their name to Click Click, they added funky experimental guitarist Rick Camp to the band and recorded "Silver Single". Their sound mutated into post punk/jagged rock. But after much turmoil in the band, they break up and the guitars and the name changed back to Half Nervous. In 1982, Adrian and Derek begin to gig as an electronic duo, their friends donated equipment and Derek acquires a set of electronic drums. Over two weeks they developed and recorded Behind Dark Glasses. It is a brash, Residents influenced collection of dark industrial electronics. At same time, Adrian Smith releases If Look Could Kill and in 1983 Another Bag Of Legs For Ya is recorded onto a borrowed Portastudio but is never officially released. Half Nervous (Jenny Prestana on viola at this time) change their name back to Click Click and record a version of "The Sack" and revisit more of Adrians solo work as well as versions of "Natural Actions" and "The Last Chance" from Behind Dark Glasses. From 1984 to 1986, Click Click (with Jon Morris replacing Jennys viola with another Wasp synth) are back in full flow, Adrians solo material continues to materialize especially under the moniker EFF. Since 1986, an ever increasing collection of cassettes and hours of recorded music sit unheard in the vaults of Lung Function." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: s/t
Format: LP

Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
“Pop drones and minimal synth from the Dutch mountains. This LP, which is also available as part of the expansive 80s Minimal.Synth.Wave: Volume IIIbox set (VOD 138LP), covers the early-80s work ofRob van Wijngaarden. It opens with captivating minimal synth instrumentals from his 1981 split cassette with Les Chats as Rob Van, originally released on Ptôses Ptôse Production Présente label. Recording sound on sound, always using the first take for each layer, van Wijngaarden created a series of dark, moody, melodic pieces inspired by Bowies Low(1977) and punks DIY attitude. Van Wijngaarden founded Heavy Mental some time in 1980 for his contribution to Dutch post-punk label Plurexs 17 to 7 on 33 compilation EP, included here. Van Wijngaarden enlisted his friend Jacob Baars, who owned a guitar, and bought a Korg MS-20 synthesizer and a Revox A-77 tape deck (inspired by its mention in the notes ofEnos Discreet Music (1975)). The band played several gigs (including a supporting slot for Bush Tetras) in several incarnations. They later changed their name to Mental and continued as a trio, with Baars and Hans Deen on guitars and van Wijngaarden on drum machine and synthesizer; their sound was a grunge-like wall of guitars over industrial bass, with one-chord songs lacking any verse-chorus structure. The trio was at its best in live performance, a power captured here on "Charles Manson," originally released on the 1981 Wpk Festival compilation cassette, as well as two tracks from the Mental Livecassette, originally released in 1981 on van Wijngaardens Mental Cassettes label. Van Wijngaarden was part of the cassette-trading scene that Throbbing Gristles Industrial Records newsletter had helped to foster; he occasionally mailed out one-off cassettes hours after recording them, and tracks from one of these extremely rare tapes are included here. One of the tape-traders with whom van Wijngaarden exchanged work was Ruud Kluivers, who sent Heavy Mental their only letter after hearing 17 to 7 on 33. Kluivers had an MS-20 too, and wanted to jam; a 1981 collaboration with van Wijngaarden is represented here as well. The collection also includes a few tracks from other splits and compilations released between 1980 and 1982. There are many tales about the Dutch post-punk movement, and most are probably more captivating than this one, but van Wijngaardens work is just as intense as anything that was happening in the Netherlands at the time.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

“Zephyr in the Swamp (Brendan Coyle and Colin Hughes) originated from the Wirral, England-based synth trio The Games. The duos friend Martin Graham joined briefly as a vocalist, but after he passed away the band continued as a duo. This album contains hypnotic, moody, melodic instrumentals created after the breakup of The Games, between 1981 and 1983. They created the music at Melva Rooms and The Loft (spaces provided by the late Mr. Whooley in Oxton, Wirral) with a Roland SH-09, a Boss Dr. Rhythm, and a Roland Organ/Strings 09, using sound-on-sound echo effects through an Akai 4000D and triggering the drum machine into various patterns. The recordings, some of which the band didnt realize existed, were unearthed from cassette and reel-to-reel tapes and were extremely fragile -- in some cases unsalvageable. And so Zephyr in the Swamp took the best tracks from the collection and had them mastered for vinyl.”

Guitar flight, zig-zag wanderings, warped sense shatterings, spoken/acapella yearnings, theremin derangement, and more -sometimes combine, sometimes crash- wailing high, revealing to the listener a not hardly hidden pop-sensibility evident almost at once to even the most never been experienced of ear and/or idea, life or song.

It’s all pulled off with the casual inevitability of a dull joke, that is to say, Vitrine is nothing but proud to announce the label-debut of Japanese sound artist 010001111000. lmof leapfrogs back in time past the ‘00s and ‘90s to a lily pad of cracked sound shared by Dome, Richard H. Kirk’s Disposable Half Truths cs, and the more far-flung reaches of the Ylem canon. Perhaps one can hear Semool entirely separated from its umbilical chord of Black Sabbath and acid rock, left to find its way amidst the burn of cheap box amps and answering machines. There’s no orthodoxy to the sound, as it touches upon the most adventurous of post-punk and abstract Industrial, steering clear of the tropes and traps of genre. EVPs for a secular transcript. Volume variations and interference provide vibrant color to both alienation and unbridled creativity. Pastels on line paper. Computations which don’t add up. 010001111000 closes the circle begun by Safe House on VT03, but then erases it from the page. An exciting new voice in uncommon sound.

"Vitrine is honored to present focus, a much-needed retrospective of source tapes, raw material and test recordings from A4, the working title of interdisciplinary visionary and mail art linchpin Eric Blevins. The click of cartridge music. The atmospherics of space from room to room. Obnoxious voices. What at first registers as sensory drift builds to accumulative significance. Blevins helped pioneer the inclusive innovations of the mail art era both via collaborative work and later through his own imprint, the essential suitcase recordings. A dedication to a hands on method of manipulation via tape and printmaking during the forms many fallow periods across the past twenty years positions his body of work, in 2016, as all the more revelatory. Vocal loops begin as satire, stammer towards sensual overload and cycle back to the feint of communication. “A victim of automation. Were all getting used to letting the computers do our answering for -“ Tape cut. Blevins shares an infectious horizontal dissonance with Joke Lanz and Rudolf Eb.ers Psychic Rally transmissions, as well as the magnetic reconfiguration of frequent collaborators TAC and Yeast Culture. focus draws on tapes stretching back to the eighties, blending obsessive loops, abstracted environmental recordings and absurd collusions of acoustic guitar, keyboard and malfunction.

“Evacuees from the Null-Commune. Eviction passport. Vitrine is thrilled to showcase two long-form decompositions from Japanese sound artist and musician, Nobuo Yamada, otherwise known as ARTBREAKHOTEL. Drag, the first full-length recording from the project in two years, details further expeditions into mechanical redundancy. Pierced and coiled metal is collaged onto the rote mewing of a crowd, unvariegated feedback and the whirl of a turbine. Noise remains a refusal of aesthetics and expediency. A stripped hex head cap screw and copper filaments. The lack of function hidden in tools. Drag falls somewhere boldly outside both the cliches of improvisation and the bland trappings of noise as genre. The sound stares at itself in self-obsession. Yamada has cut his teeth as a collaborator besides such luminaries as Richard Ramirez, Toshiji Mikawa, Richard Rupenus and Hideaki Shimada. Yamada belongs in such company. Scraped guitar strings spiral back into a gutter of no value. The sounds are good, but thats not the point. The A side features source material from TNB, wryly repurposing the work of a project known for doing just that. Climaxes subsume themselves to anti-climax. The handmade account and the pleasure of nothing at all. Each copy of Drag comes with a full-color, pro-printed postcard courtesy the artist. Sold out at source.” - Vitrine.

"Algorithmic language detritus. Tape devolution. Queasy string work and pescatarian poetry. Vitrine closes out its Fall batch with the first audio publication from Philadelphia-based writer and artist Mel Bentley. This follows such strong showings as 2013’s & parts, released as a chapbook through Damask Press. Red Green Blue collects a wide berth of live performances and stray discomfort. Bentley’s writing evokes Black Tarantula-era Kathy Acker bisected by Ron Silliman and the panoply of Nathaniel Mackay. Aggregate Internet waste and epistolary diversion. Red Green Blue’s melange of text, field recordings, free improv intersections and tape manipulation harkens back to the openness of cassette magazines such as Underwhich Audiographics or Edition S Press. The Dundee Telegrams by the Paxton Group and Paula Claire is a somewhat probable touchstone, though there is a palpable vitality to these sonic extensions unfettered by reference or deference. Recitation ranges from the languid to the deadpan to a heated stumble of apprehension. There’s a freeness to these live recordings, as Bentley presents a variety of perspectives to approach the writing. The latent air within the performance space, the shuffle and cough of the audience and a torrent of rain fall on Baltimore Avenue are all given their opportunity alongside the character of Bentley’s formidable poetry. “Why can’t I dig my way out of a personality.” Limited to 100 copies." - Vitrine.

"If Steve McCafferys 78 cassette of sound poetry and reel to reel deconstructions was dubbed Research on the Mouth, perhaps an alternate title for capitulation, blackhumours latest release, could be Pornography of the Mouth. The source materials puritanism betrays both a libertinage of intent and depth of connotation latent in Fraser Halls illustrious and long-standing solo project.  Since the early 80s, blackhumour has been stubbornly dedicated to an investigation of the cracks which exist in common speech practice and the vacancy of the signifier. Vocal event is mined for stochastic determinism and glottal smut. Sapir-Whorf collides into Krafft-Ebing. While affinities exist, it would be difficult to categorize this material as sound poetry, despite a focus on voice, breath and the subtle diversion of linguistic intent. What is it. Repetition and magnification direct the incremental units of a sound which manages to focus sonic density to a concrete minimalism. Some comparison can be made to Halls contemporaries Anne Gillis, the Haters or Kapotte Muziek, but blackhumour has always generated its own gravitational pull.

We would sometimes give him cheap bodega food on paper plates - they didnt allow him inside the shop because he was too fucked up.” Vitrine is proud to announce the first solo release from tape-noise stalwart Samantha Flowers. Inane conversation segues from isolate flutter to stoop obsolescence, all swaddled in a bored headache of masked vocals and malfunction. Signal interference bleeds into positional confusion and numbskull amp burble, while still retaining an adroit sense of humor. Over the past few years, Flowers has racked up an impressive resume during residencies in Philadelphia and Detroit, with turns in various projects, including out-of-bounds rhythm box unit Growth Program alongside Chris Durham. C . R . Odette both refines the confounding aesthetic heard in Flowers crud-improv duo, Creode, while also allowing for perpendicular forays into AQM-style shortwave collapse, Quick Stab-fried pop debris and deep Kenzo field recordings.

Aura Deterrent follows a triathlon of small-run cassettes released on labels such as Alien Passengers, Fag Tapes and Nostilevo. Durham charts daily doldrums and migraines through misdirection of event and disregard. The audial tangle of these four tracks betray a sober attention to deadpan journalism and private testimony. The Industrial and post-Fluxus driftwood of Rod Summers and Storm Bugs crash into bedroom retardation and an instrument-less prog which is as informed by Dennis Duck as it is Henry Cow.

Marble Cage consolidates the sonic approach heard on previous releases such as the Mauve Decade ( Ascetic House ) and Sabbath (Robert & Leopold), combining the rough hewn panic of Mail Art-era power electronics with a somber organizational determination. And while Martin retains a studied patience throughout, the clustered haze of electronics firmly locates Copley Medal in the same psychedelic mire as Hole in the Heart-era Ramleh.

Empty Reels consists of just that, four investigations of empty reels spinning on a Grundig TK5 machine. The sound is not processed and is instead allowed to develop along its own path for forty minutes. The listener becomes immersed in the sound, which retains a sober anchor as Cornford steers clear of drone. Allowance for registry, intact. The four studies heard on Empty Reels establish a modest furniture theater reminiscent of such premier artists as Andrew Chalk or Massimo Toniutti. A simple process with simple rewards. Cornford reveals an objects integrity through patience and clarity of intent. Over the past five or six years, Stephen has been developing an impressive body of recorded work to compliment his reputation as an installation artist and live improviser. In addition to his own output, Cornford is responsible for co-running Consumer Waste, a label focusing on electroacoustic experimentation and uncommon sound.

"Metaphors contain cracks through which significance slips out. Occurrence without explanation, but with clear purpose and senseless resolve. Vitrine is beside itself with pride to announce the latest release by California tape artist Darksmith. Everyone Is Welcome In My Room sidesteps the trendiness, slickness and hothouse social backslapping which is de rigueur in the contemporary experimental underground. Tom Darksmith follows up an array of CDrs, including an impressive collaboration with Dylan Nyoukis on Chocolate Monk, with thirty minutes of consummate tape music - abstract in vision and deliberate in intent. Each side progresses with the illusion of motionlessness, allowing for wide chasms of broken sound to crackle alongside the hull of an enormous din. Darksmith belongs to a small handful of artists who cannot be tethered to a geographic aesthetic or a timely moment in sound. Instead, he draws from a deep reservoir of rusted electronics, detuned strings and sterling tape music to craft work which is both incredibly contemporary and of its own sounding. If anything, he becomes increasingly intriguing with each subsequent release. Darksmith does not so much interrogate the boundaries of a space as generate a science fictional topography via magnetic tape and electronics.

Nobu Kasahara is perhaps better known as Wataru Kasahara, a visual artist whose point of organ, scatological and obsessive work inhabits the same putrefaction as Dernier Cri or the material art of Andy Bolus. As Embudagonn 108, Kasahara has expelled a curious catalog of sounds - shortwave, room event, organ malfunction. Requiem consists of archival recordings made between 1988-91 and embodies a strong distaste for passive or receptive noise. Embudagonn 108 confuses, infuriates and incites the listener towards action. Shortwave and electronic interference stumbles alongside occasional crackle and percussion drudgery. A radio play as in amusement through use. Kasaharas work features the same arch nihilism on display in Violent Onsen Geisha, but these recordings are also clearly influenced by Fluxus absurdism such as Sarenco or Arthur Pétronio.

For the past five years, Johansson and Andersson have been collectively delivering the next best thing to a bag full of Elkbrews and some MSNP tapes. Theres constant movement which never leads to progress as dense sound drops out to half-seconds of silence, following which the listener returns to another spot on the map, as if such a relocation mattered. High-yield noise without some vague pretense towards darkness or taboo. Limit points without the notion of a dotted line. It would be apt to call this a manifestation of pure, libidinal energy, if it wasnt all so gloriously drunk and retarded. Sound for sounds sake. Pleasure for no sake at all.

The everyday as ecstatic as it always has been. Natural Causes follows a recent banner run of releases by Manning, including 2015s Interlacing LP, the Delicate Shades of Hell cs on sterling tape imprint Greedy Ventilator and LED, an outstanding 10” of new works self-released by the artist earlier this year. Chimes cut to dour electronic warble. A standard bearer of contrast and sonorous multitude. Clang, clatter and debris swarm in plumes of activity. Adam Bohmans object improv or Joe Jones solar music are signposts along the way to a unique hemisphere of absurd inevitability. Bells vibrate above whipping crescents of machinery. Persistent creaking stumbles in a textured cluster. Irregular romance. Excerpts from Le Couperet, arriving thirty years too late.

"Time takes its time to get here. Watching it pass requires patience and real observation, unencumbered by motivation or prompt. Vitrine is proud to announce Thracian Summer, the watershed new release by Philadelphia-based artist Christian Mirande. The hand disappears to reveal gesture, gesture disappears. Mirande discloses things hidden in slantwise language through an apocalypse of studied sequence. Sounds possess unhurried confidence in both space and incident. Echo builds to physical swirl reminiscent of nothing less than Ferial Confine. Mirandes use of modular synthesis and unprocessed field recordings fall into black holes of logic - the manner in which an artist shows himself in the world without oppressing himself upon nature. An organics of intention set these tracks apart from other releases utilizing the tools on the table. Narrative doesnt arise over these two sides- an emotional mimesis is driven to exist. John Hudak joins Sean Dower and John Mylotte after curfew at an industrial yard in Derwenthaugh on the river Tyne. Automobiles and pedestrians in Seoul. Bad radio in public spaces. Mirande arrives at decisions through living rather than emulation of formula. Vitrine has been shaped in no small part due to the personal and professional influence of artists like Christian Mirande and there is no better way to inaugurate 2016 than with this cassette- a resounding, mature statement.

“This transfer of my libido onto language and intelligence is not a simple defense against guilty genital desires, for it moreover creates a new object of desire, which becomes a new source of satisfaction, supplementary to the pleasure of the erogenous zones : simply put, it is the capacity to infinitely represent and name, to the point of giving words and meaning or non-meaning to genital and masochistic arousal itself. And this in the hope, not only to find partial substitutes to prohibited incest which would be my own activities or symbolic work, but to merit this prohibited love, made guilty and turned inside out to masochism: to merit it by this extravagant capacity of sublimation that all humans possess but which I, little girl, work hard to excel in better than anyone else.” Vitrine presents a further exercise in pointless listening. “Bad joke, but good art.” Why spend time listening to noise when you can just turn it off? Dont let noise become music. A soundtrack to what? The Masochism cassette continues the relay race of overheard sound as featured on Come Orgs Ripper Tape or the Yoran seven inch on Unbalance. Dead air, libidinal mutilation & box amp degradation nip at the heels of marginalia. Found audio and sordid news exposes are occasionally offset by cheap electronics and a minimum skill set.

This latest cassette follows a seven inch released earlier in ‘16 on the singular IDDB imprint and offers private reconnaissance from similar territory. Double Jupiter is a strange bird of mottled plumage -telltale dictaphone, appropriation, musicality as estrangement, and phlegmatic evocations of Bob Cobbing. Sound poetry from the vantage point of languages collapse. Murray allows tapes physicality to dictate texture and taste, while voice locates a gentle humanity amidst the fray. Theres a sense of automatic composition as collation. Theres no common sense, but Murray maintains a more holistic sense across the two visionary sides of Double Jupiter.

Vitrine is proud to present the latest cassette from Icelandic artist Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson. Hiccups and romance escape from the throat, mixed into a tincture of robust musicality, location recordings and dense electronics. A demons attack of treated recordings inject raw purpose into each of these varied tracks. Sigmarsson eludes the crosshairs of the specific; his work ranges from painting to photography to drawing to phlegmatic performance, yet no matter the medium, he exorcises the unsaid and undone. Acoustic guitar, church bells and gallows mumbling could just as easily be an outtake from the Gerogerigegeges Endless Humiliation as a deleted Obscure label release. Earnest emotion passes for parody - its all a joke, something to do with canards and sturgeon. “Just because its funny, doesnt mean Im not crying.” Sigmarsson has garnered an exceptional resume in sound, both as a founding member of Stilluppsteypa and solo, with releases on labels such as Ultra Eczema, Chocolate Monk, Hanson and Korm Plastics. Sad Vocal Manipulation..? is a cosmic ark of diversity, ranging from the micro tensions of the body to painterly landscapes beyond the expanse of recognitions.

A blanket is rolled into the corner. Touchstones can be found in the sub-basement of Italian non-music, a space occupied by such singular projects as Lyoto Music and Amok. ‘The Adulator also harkens back to a homemade American sound which covers everything from the invasive electronics of early John Duncan to the exercises in collapse of Hands To circa Turn Back the Sun. This is the whirl of interference jammed around the erase head. Silence does not connote track breaks or continuity. Concern for nothing but sound in its vulgar sight.

The Sallow Rakes suggests the most curious reaches of mail art and sound poetry, reminding the listener of under appreciated acts of the Underwhich Audiographics family such as DUCT and Tekst. Vitrine alumni Mel Bentley provides text and voice as counterpoint to Strongs amorphous instrumentation and spoken word. Rubber burns on a pyre of wet oak. Breath bleeds into the more discreet sounds of the body. Jim Strong has made a name for himself privileging the collaborative and intuitive serendipity of performance. That said, The Sallow Rakes is an inclusive marvel which yet speaks of a focused and individual personality. The protein mirror. Bob Cobbings work in Konkrete Canticle is a possible road marker, but that doesnt quite get the adventurous traveler all the way there. This is an invented compass, pointing to a True North beyond the axises. Here, an interior mystery play of device.” - Vitrine.

Title: Rope Commercial Vol. 2
Format: Cass

Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Vitrine inaugurates 2015 with the second volume in the Rope Commercial series courtesy Kentucky-based artist, Robert Beatty. Since the early 2000s, Beatty has been a stalwart of the American underground. Hes expanded his palette in recent years with solo forays as Three Legged Race. Rope Commercial Vol. 2 finds Beatty venturing further beyond the pale, delivering two sides of sinkhole electronics straight out of a dusted Igloo LP or an anomalous 8” flexi of Kansai post-punk. Wordless distance is traveled in miniature. Throughout the fulgent diversity of the cassettes twenty minutes, Beatty exemplifies the unhurried poise of a master. Sound for the end of ozone. Preparations for the empty closet. Limited to 150 copies.” - Vitrine.

Artist: TONIUTTI, MASSIMO
Title: antidocument/groundwork
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"A pebble codex. Vitrine is honored to present antidocument/groundwork, the first album of new work by Massimo Toniutti since 1991s Il Museo Selvatico. Toniutti has been crafting a theatre of geometry and meiosis since the early 80s with his self-released cassettes bridging concrete sound, Industrial shadow play and stately dispersal. A rustle, something falls. Out of bounds electronics complicate sound cabinets of ringing bells and creaking joints. The furniture is cleared from the room. Echo precedes incident. antidocument/groundwork finds spiritual kinship with Toniuttis past work, but exists as its own monument to tape and place. Charge and field in secular transitions of magnetic layering. Plateaus of mysterious sound reveal latent sense in a latticed order. Rising and falling along latitudes of significance. Tapping, fade and swelter into sequences far climes. Suddenly, a string is plucked and tape reacts in space. While comparisons can be made to artists such as Andrew Chalk or G*Park, Massimo Toniutti creates his own context. This is the assured, mature work of a master. There is no further explanation necessary than the sound itself. antidocument/groundwork follows through on the promise of Toniuttis past works and surpasses them in nuance and minute scale. A rustle and swift mic interference - a wind up moratorium. Its all on negotiable instruments. Its all up in the air and committed to tape. When the tape stops, flip it over and play again.

Title: Byron Recital Hall No. 3
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Vitrine is thrilled to unveil Byron Recital Hall No. 3, the latest volume in a continuing series of assemblages and chance meetings. Being left with the stain of blind interaction. Episodic actions spool into greater chambers of interlocking dismay. Mike Collino, either with solo efforts as Dog Lady Island or via his sterling Alien Passengers imprint, exemplifies the midwestern / Detroit milieu of home-tapers and jammers while also generating a blurred, placeless intrigue. There is more than enough room at this table for analog gunk and grime, but a place has been set for refined obscurantism and Fluxus absurdity.The bent is unmistakably American while also Continental, not unlike LaDonna Smith and Davey Williams Southern skew on surrealist bric-a-brac via Trans Museq. Various players are assembled in aggregate units to then be combined and mixed according to procedural schematic. While past volumes reeked of a heady Detroit junk noise brew and the spacious event of East Bionic Symphonia, this issue touches on everything from abattoir circuitry to Phren-esque analytic decollage. The players are amongst the lighthouses of the fertile midwestern vein, including Tyler Hicks, Andrew Coltrane, Heath Moerland, Sam Hooker and Knox Mitchell, as well as criminally under-documented artists such as Brad Dixon and Michael Dresden. Byron Recital Hall No. 3 serves as a candle down to a morass of largely untapped group innovation. What was once obscure becomes obvious to a fault. Rooms are disassembled, voices lose their bodies and decay never truly manages to destroy the sound. Limited to 100 copies. Sold out at source." - Vitrine

Title: Map of the Interior
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Vitrine is proud to announce its very first compilation as well as its final release of 2014. Map of the Interiors nine tracks present a love letter to the heyday of mail-art culture and a promise that such international friendship is still thriving across postal channels and on the internet. In his collection, After Lorca, American poet Jack Spicer resuscitates the Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca through a series of letters sent across the gulf of time and mortality. Map of the Interior attempts to bridge a spatial, rather than temporal divide, with nine tracks devoted to the marriage of tape and breath. Tape prolongs the life of the voice, extending it beyond the body into the greater polis. Hiss, flutter, yawn. Map of the Interior features contributions from a distinguished pedigree of international artists, including Matthew Philip Hopkins, Arv & Miljö, Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson Yeast Culture, and Spoils & Relics, as well as Vitrine house artists Good Area and No Intention. “Things do not connect. They correspond.” Limited to 250 copies." - Vitrine.

Artist: WALKER, RUSSELL
Title: I Never See My Pal
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
Edition of 100. ““The classic book, so readable now.” Footsteps and a passing automobile introduce daily comedy and the droll slake of boredom. Vitrine is honored to announce the newest release by British artist Russell Walker, I never see my pal. Russell Walkers work inhabits an impressive and idiosyncratic sector, from the frayed post-punk of the Phermoans to the synth preambles of the Bomber Jackets. This alone makes Walker an intriguing contemporary figure. His work in the Charcoal Owls, Teleporters and under his own name, on the other hand, paints a Pickmans Model of parochial malaise and out of bounds art rock. I never see my pal compiles, for the first time on cassette, two rare and deleted Savoury Days CDrs. “You wouldnt have got them if I didnt like…these. I want these.” While Side As Willow Session contrasts field recordings with penumbral acoustic sketches, The Thwartee of Side B combines dour shortwave with the eldritch banality of Mark E Smiths the Post-Nearly Man. Musicality is drained of semblance and incidental sound gains fragile primacy. Crude keyboard. Television from the other room. Wind interference. Guitar and voice made strange and uncommon. Words smell of stale beer. The nightmare is the accuracy of life on dreadful display. Casual occurrence falls into inevitability. Heres another chance to pick up two of the most confounding and vital releases of the past five years. “I want to change what people see when they look at me.” - Vitrine.

Artist: WHITE, TOM
Title: Automated Evangelism
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
“Piano denouement and the bare scraps of a dance recital. Vitrine is honored to present new work by London-based artist Tom White. In less than a decade of public performance, White has amassed an impressive oeuvre stretching across a multimedia platform including, but not limited to, installation, film and sound art. Automated Evangelism compliments previous releases on storied labels such as Chocolate Monk, Alien Passengers and Imminent Frequencies. Radio and wind bear witness to sonic intervention. An obstinate clarion. Vibrant new realities manifest through the forensic trace of tampering. Moments unfold in sequences of sense rather than chronology. Placing one foot in front of the other creates an inevitable trail. The physical motion of tape mirrors the cadence of footsteps. As spatial and temporal continuity is dissolved by method of the hand and ear, its replaced by a mental continuity - the closed loop revolving amidst thinking. Automated Evangelisms play of the uncanny and dissonant against coherent unity is reminiscent of the light surrealism of John Hudak or Damian Bisciglia, but the pleasures herein remain distinct to White. A constant mystery of performance autonomously folds back into studied archive. Overheard brilliance, tape, presence - it approaches beauty. Sold out at source.” - Vitrine.

Title: These Are the Good Times
Format: LP
Label: Vittelli
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"The Vittelli label announces itself with this fine release of London’s highlife, lowlife, wildlife and everyday life plucked from Ian Rawes’ vast London Sound Survey. At his day job at the British Library sound archive Rawes cut his teeth in archiving and explored its depths. Field recordings and studies by acoustic ecologists came to his attention around the same time that he was looking to create his own capital-based project. At this time the internet promised to be the great equalizer and enthusiasts’ sites like urban75, Classic Cafes, Derelict London, and Subterranea Britannica provided inspiration. Several years later Rawes is responsible for his own huge archive and has explored novel ways of presenting and preserving the recordings on his site. His recordings employ a variety of professional, home made, and adapted devices used both discreetly or in plain view. In recent years Rawes has presented and discussed his work at various institutions, galleries and events around the UK. He’s been featured in The Wire, Time Out, and has appeared on BBC R4, BBC London and the BBC World service. The selections on this LP were made by Vittelli’s Nick Hamilton and were mastered for vinyl by Graham Lambkin (Shadow Ring, Kye). These Are The Good Times comes in an edition of 300 on 180g vinyl in a colour sleeve featuring notes by Ian Rawes and Ed Baxter (Resonance FM)." - Vittelli.

Songs include High on a Happy, Walk on Mister, and the classic Dit Dewey Man, which is psychy, funky and flat out cool. The original test presses have been a coveted collectors item for a long time fetching hundreds of dollars making this reissue an instant classic. The album also features an insert and the 45 release of Dit Dewey Man as a bonus cut." - Void.

"Exact reissue of this Christian psych album from 1967. Great Christian psychedelic songs that are sure to blow your mind. These boys were going to Catholic High in the late 60s, dropping acid, and listening to The Beatles. The result is cool, intelligent, raw, psychedelic sounds. This is the best example of what Christian psych can be." - Void.

Title: Nothing Hides Better Than Darkness
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Legendary folk psych duo recorded a very rare private LP back in 1973. Originals go for big bucks. Every song is well written and played. All originals including title song. 700 pressing from master tapes on black vinyl, including lyric sheet. The original had just a blank white cover. Here we have a glossy cool color cover approved by the band. This is somewhat like a more folky Stone Harbour in its basement sound and eclectic vibes. Even has a Lennon-McCartney feel if they did acid folk loner vibes. We picked this for our 50th release because I love the music here. Highly regarded by all collectors who have heard it.

"Warehouse find of the last copies of this earlier reissue. "Just a few copies left of this long OOP Void classic. Heres the scoop -- The Hunger released their only LP on the Publix label way back in the 60s. This edition did not have (or had very little) guitar. Though it was a classic LP, it needed the guitar. Sometime later a friend in California found an alternate acetate with a stirring guitar versus organ sound and different arrangements and song lengths. Brian Hulitt contacted Mike Parkison and Willie Daffern about this lost sound and they claim that it was none other than Ed King who stopped in to put the guitar parts on this version! The rest is history, as they say. Here is the classic Hunger The Lost Album as it originally was and should sound. Liner notes by Clark Faville." Limited remaining stock..." -Void

Artist: DREAM/AKTION UNIT
Title: Blood Shadow Rampage
Format: CD
Label: Volcanic Tongue
Country: UK
Price: $17.50
"Volcanic Tongue is proud to present the first ever release by the Dream/Aktion Unit, a free-thinking avant garage Ur-kestra based around the central kernel of guitarist Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), saxophonist Paul Flaherty and drummer Chris Corsano (Six Organs Of Admittance, Sunburned Hand Of The Man et al) and featuring Heather Leigh Murray (Taurpis Tula / Jandek / Charalambides) on pedal steel and vocals and Matt Heyner (No-Neck Blues Band/Test/Angelblood) on upright bass. The Dream/Aktion Unit were originally birthed as a side-project to allow Thurston Moore and Jim ORourke to fully explore the kind of ecstatic power blues that their work in Sonic Youth repeatedly implied. The addition of legendary New England saxophonist Paul Flaherty and powerhouse drummer Chris Corsano provided them with an umbilical connection straight to the source of modern musical freedom, while working to liberate them from previously articulated modes of known rock-speak. As a quartet, the group tore through a bunch of the USAs most winning festival spaces �? their ground-levelling F/X pedal assault at the De Stijl/Freedom From bash in Minneapolis in 2004 being a particular landmark - with both guitarists drawing creative sustenance from the kind of ego-obliterating drums/horn interaction previously articulated by players like The Reverend Frank Wright, Glenn Spearman, Denis Charles and Albert Ayler. Come 2005 �? with sub-underground modes enjoying a particularly unlikely shot in the sun �? The Dream/Aktion unit began to take on role of some kind spontaneous think-tank, with a revolving door policy towards membership and a commitment to the demands of the moment resulting in almost orchestral incarnations featuring members of Burning Star Core, Hair Police and Vampire Belt all pushing the hell out of the envelope. In May 2005 Moore, Flaherty and Corsano brought the Dream/Aktion Unit to Stirling, Scotland, for the final Le Weekend festival to be curated by David Keenan/Volcanic Tongue. With O�??Rourke permanently out of the picture due to various film and musical commitments, Matt Heyner aka Count Heynowski of NNCK and Heather Leigh of Taurpis Tula stepped up. The results were mind-blowing, with the quintet tearing through a non-stop gush of energy/ideas without resorting to base musical concerns like dialogue or listening with your ears. This was pure simultaneity at some kind of peak of flux. Moores role was key. He would move from these kind of suggestive, shepherding chords that would work lubes of motion into the back line, where Corsano and Heyner hooked up to such a degree that it was hard to separate their individual tonal and percussive points. They sounded like a friggin combine harvester. Murray and Flaherty were floating on their own particular plane, one that worked to reconcile the insane pulse of blood from the base of their spine with the juice of pure vision. Flaherty�??s sound touches on a whole bunch of jazz modes while re-situating the tradition somewhere way upwind of contemporary sound-as-thought while Heather Leighs exquisitely violent pedal steel stylings and free vocal improvisations seemed to touch on aspects of both Patty Waters, Lydia Lunch and Keiji Hainos flesh-extensions while resolutely refusing anything approaching previously-articulated tongue. The whole thing was recorded and mixed straight to 24 track and the results are what you have in your hands. The first ever document of the collective thought of what�??s easily the cream of the subterranean cup. Packaged in deluxe hard card gatefold sleeves with specially-commissioned eye-gouging video nasty-style artwork from Miss Karen Constance of Brighton aka Karen Lollypop of Blood Stereo/Smack Music 7/Chocolate Monk this is the first ever real CD release from Volcanic Tongue after a run of limited and highly collectable art-edition CD-Rs." - Volcanic Tongue.

Title: The Undetermined Dyad
Format: LP
Label: Volcanic Tongue
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Edition of 300 copies, with sleeves featuring original artwork by Marcia Bassett, all silkscreened by Alan Sherry of SIWA and with a full-color insert. Expertly mastered by Tom Carter of Charalambides. Zaïmph is working cover for the solo experiments of Marcia Bassett, formerly of Un and Double Leopards, currently of GHQ and Hototogisu. The Undetermined Dyad functions as the fulcrum of her career to date, looking back towards her experiments in group levitation with Double Leopards while extrapolating on her recent solo work. Most of all its a guitar record and one that sits comfortably alongside previous six-string monoliths like John Faheys Days Have Gone By, Donald Millers A Little Treatise On Morals and Masayuki Takayanagis Live At Zojoji Hall while sounding quite unlike any of them. Bassetts re-imagining of the instrument pushes it to the point of almost translucence, where the physical fact of the guitar itself is almost completely subsumed by echo, F/X, loops and the kind of improvisatory logic that prizes infinite expansion and organic growth over repeated tropes or riffs. Aspects of the first side -- the eerie ghost voices, the deep space echo -- recall the electrified ritual of nomadic Japanese avant gardists Taj Mahal Travellers but more immediately it sounds like a magnification of her individual contribution to Double Leopards, generating towers of electricity that move from malevolent arcs of anti-gravity and spumes of throttled single notes through to deep wormholes that do violence to feeble notions of time and space. The B-side is a little more aggressive, with the tactile sound of strings on pick-ups anchoring a gorgeous wash of all-consuming drone and garage band fuzz before Bassett cranks the tone into realms of total sonic reducer. If your concept of the guitar begins with Jimi Hendrix setting the fucking thing on fire and ends with the sound of voltage completely liberated from any kind of tonal or harmonic anchor whatsoever, then this record may well be the girl youve been praying for. But you wont wanna introduce her to your parents." --David Keenan, Glasgow, April 2008.

Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Volfurten is the new trip in to the odd and the strange from UK musically freaks Volcano the bear, its ltd to 300 copies each in a different hand painted cover. Which is a nice bonus,but what about the music- well this is as odd as anything they?ve done before, feeling like a very strange magic carpet ride- touch down musically in (their own) world music, jazz, odd metallic moments, dada sound tomfoolery, oh and no real vocals one this one either. The feeling, vibe or theme that starts the album and reappears later is very desert based in my mind. Though a very strange desert, one with muilt coloured sands and camels walking along the sky and strange arabic men with huge beards trailing behind them as they give audio swimming lesson backwards. Yes this is very odd stuff indeed, Track one drags us into this strange ethnic world with wonky snake dance guitar and ethnic percussion. Track two takes us deeper into the desert where we really seem to start to loose are mind as we meet all manner of manic chanting and strange audio shenanigans, before dropping into a very odd nightmare world of bent Bernard Herrmann string work, via strange building drone tones. Next it goes into a little surreal ballet dance practice, with clunky piano and all manner of bizarre calls and sounds over the top. It all ends off with a strange ritual air via distorted instrumentation and what almost sounds like typewriter key hits .Track three seems to ushers us into a black and white scene maybe something from a odd early Jess Franco film, where strange macabre female dances out a jerky and plainly disturbing death dance. As ragged violin hover and swirl in horrific air ,female voices chant like spirits calling you over the other side and goosepimply organ weaves on like the reaper seeking out victims. So as you can see you have to expected anything and everything to happen with in these audio confines. I wont detail any more as Volcano the Bear stuff is best tripped into solo and with out set vision." - Roger Batty.

"Organza," 11 minutes long, used feedback like a lonely violinist, embellishing its structure-battering pianos and unlistenable under-noise to dart under the legs of prog rocks manufactured philosophical extravagance. "Vast Banket" a-minute-and-a-half long, was the Boredoms being pushed down a flight of stairs. Enthralling, if a bit tuneless." - Dean Carlson, All Music Guide. Recorded live 22.3.98.

Artist: LOS LICHIS
Title: Klassix 1
Format: CDR
Label: Vuélvete (Underground Records)
Country: Mexico
Price: $10.00
Self-released compilation from 2006. "This deep into the internet era its unusual to discover a weird ass band whove been active and recording since the 1990s without ever appearing as a blip on any known radar screen. Yet, here are Los Lichis: a Mexican music/art collective whose recording history goes back 18 years and whose sound is as powerful and strange as any combo around. Some might suggest that Mexico is not known for its underground sonic emanations, but many dig artists like Loch Ness, Chac Mool, Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, Los Llamarada and various improv types heard about from folks who tour down there. Some of Mexicos punk and metal bands have their moments as well. But none of them on the scale of Los Lichis. Los Lichis were formed in 1996 in Mexico City by three visual artists—Manuel Mathar, José Luis ROjas and Gerardo Monsivais. They had met a year earlier and their social collaborations on drawings, collages and actions eventually morphed into musical experimentation. They ended up recording quite a bit of improvised psychedelic material using a variety of instruments they approached with more enthusiasm than knowledge. In Paris in 2000 for an exhibition of their work, Mathar and Monsivais met the French sound artist Jean-Baptiste Favory, who was excited by the cassettes they played him. Favory became the fourth member, visiting Mexico once a year to play live and record with Los Lichis, and to help in processing the resultant material. Soon after their French sojourn, a slightly different version of the group, featuring a couple of Mexican musicians, began playing and recording under the name The Cacaflies. Various CD-Rs and cassettes were released by the core group using both names, but the details are vague. Largely these recordings seem to have been distributed free at live shows. Several are also available online." - Byron Coley, The Wire.
