Artist: DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA
Title: Clifton Park Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Sixth LP -- and part one of a two-part set -- from Manchester, UK-based free rock floatation unit DSDV. The band accepted an invitation by Burnt Hills guitarist Parashi to hole up in his Clifton Park, NY, basement and make a record in April 2015, and Parashi sat in with his bandmate Rambutan to wail with the guys. Starting out with an uncharacteristically straight-up Nick Mitchell riff, the record soon picks up a cloud and surfs it to 300,000 feet, the wind whipping through the bands hair for almost a solid hour of what turned out to be the most ecstatic jam they ever did have. Mixed and mastered by Bojanic Audio & Mastering, Manchester, UK. Dave Birchall: guitar; Andrew Cheetham: drums; Dylan Hughes: guitar; Nick Mitchell: guitar; Parashi: guitar; Rambutan: guitar; Edwin Stevens: guitar; Otto Willberg: bass. Features unique artwork combinations by John Moloney with every copy -- no two alike. 140-gram vinyl. Edition of 250. "Absolutely essential two volume collection with crazy Heitkotter esque artwork courtesy of Sunburned Hands John Moloney -- both references work sonically as well -- DSDV are one of the preeminent free rock bands out there, cutting edge, tip of the spear, reconciling out-there free jazz -- maybe think Coltranes Ascension -- with pummeling heavy psych straddling Bardo Pond and The Stooges -- the drummer and bassist maintain an in-and-out telepathic groove while six freaked out guitarists cut loose like almost nothin youve ever heard, a semi improvised yet well considered exposition of riffs -- my god, its full of riffs -- prepare yourself for a hundred minute hurricane of mind-blowing finger-blistering bliss." - Psi Lab.

Title: Clifton Park Vol. 2
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Seventh LP -- and part two of a two-part set -- from Manchester, UK-based free rock floatation unit DSDV. The band accepted an invitation by Burnt Hills guitarist Parashi to hole up in his Clifton Park, NY, basement and make a record in April 2015, and Parashi sat in with his bandmate Rambutan to wail with the guys. The first jam of the night up had turned out so well that back down they went, this time falling quickly into a rhythmic trance that dallied and then collapsed into free rock Helheim. Drones, counter-rhythms, shifts into major pentatonic Allman Brothers-isms, and spitting, all-out Mahavishnic curses and hexes make this the bands most erratic statement of unswerving cacaphonic intent. Mixed and mastered by Bojanic Audio & Mastering, Manchester, UK. Dave Birchall: guitar; Andrew Cheetham: drums; Dylan Hughes: guitar; Nick Mitchell: guitar; Parashi: guitar; Rambutan: guitar; Edwin Stevens: guitar; Otto Willberg: bass.

Title: Dieter Dierks Jerks
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"Live In Manchester. Recorded by Phil Todd. Limited to 100 copies only. Includes beautiful silk screened artwork by Alex Humphreys." - FE. "Of course, guitars have long been middle-brow targets for commentators as somehow signifying everything that was cock-bound and self-aggrandizing and technically impudent about rock music. But when its played like this, with a blurring of technique that allows a bunch of northern punks access to the combined freak potential of more than a half century of electric six-string excess, its a reminder of the electric guitars uncanny ability to respond not just to where its been, but to where its at." --David Keenan, The Wire; "I cant remember the last time I felt myself overcome by so many conflicting emotions -- awe, excitement, envy, exasperation -- and yet it all coalesced into a contented, feverish fervor. I cannot tell you how great a feeling that is -- a near robotic state, the only movements being to get up and change the record... So if you are into your overtly intricate, caterwauling, explosive, experimental improvisational psych rock jams, this album is your ticket to Valhalla." --Sonic Masala.

Title: Interpenetrating Dimensional Express
Format: Double LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
“Third vinyl outing for Manchester, UK free-rock guitar army Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura. This one is a monster double LP comprising four heads-down slabs of perpetual crescendo veering between raging, pseudo-biker rock psychedelics, unhinged Japanese style freakout and fractured funkadelicisms. Recorded at the bands unofficial HQ at Sunshine Studios by local legend Patrick Crane, this is a molten third eye opener shooting ecstatic vibrations straight to the pranic centers. Limited to 300 copies.” - Golden Lab.

Title: The Empire Never Ended
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“Fourth studio LP and seventh full-length release from Manchester, UK guitar army Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura. This brand new set of jams is a very different doggy to the bands previous records. The A-side captures their most ecstatic, cohesive, sun-scorched, celebratory stylings to date, while the B-side demonstrates a disjointed almost Sun City Girls-eque approach to bastardised technicality and deep weirdness.” - Golden Lab.

Title: The Grand Celestial Purge
Format: 4 LP Box
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $107.00
"The eighth Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura album, The Grand Celestial Purge, is a three-hour, four LP box set of psychedelic musings on the departed musicians of 2016. Produced by Richard Formby and recorded at a converted church in Leeds, this is DSDVs most melodious and spacious album to date. You can hear clear nods to The Grateful Dead throughout as well as fragments of Can, Carlos Santana and John McLaughlins Love Devotion Surrender (1973) and even Tim Buckleys Blue Afternoon (1969) band. Drowned in tape echo and with a Wally Heider-style snap to the drum sound, the recording has all the traits of a classic Formby production. Gone is much of the blur of guitars that shrouded the bands previous albums in cacophony; Whilst still present here and there, its been replaced with a somewhat virtuoso level of interplay that smacks of a bygone, pre-ironic era in rock music where sincerity, dedication to the craft of improvisation, and the desire to transcend the mundane via heightened, sustained hive-mind mentality was all that mattered." - Golden Lab. Personnel: David Birchall - guitar; Andrew Cheetham - drums; Richard Formby - synths; Dylan Hughes - guitar; Nick Mitchell - guitar, bass; Dom Tanner - guitar; Otto Willberg - bass.
