Artist: MANIACS DREAM
Title: Zanzibar
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Finland is the epicenter of collective music-making. Under the name Maniacs Dream, members of a variety of Finnish bands such as Avarus, Fricara Pacchu, Kemialliset Ystävät, and more come together to create blown-out free rock (not your typical stoner guitar jams). Their unique/bizarre approach to music-making constantly questioning the construction/deconstruction of sound creates songs at times recalling the electro-acoustic clatter drone of Avarus crossed with tribal rhythms and intergalactic guitar zones. Total sonic freedom with a punk ethos directly influenced by a trip to Zanzibar prior to recording this record (which is a reissue of the long sold-out tape originally released on Lal Lal Lal in 2006). In an edition of 450 records on light blue vinyl with printed labels and full color pro-printed fold-over sleeves with art by Benjamin Bergman and an insert." - Arbor

Artist: MANIACS DREAM
Title: Die, Learn, No Way
Format: LP
Label: HP Cycle
Country: Canada
Price: $15.00
"While sharing the zoned-out sensibility of their brethren (Avarus, The Anaksimandros, Pylon, etc.), Maniacs Dream distinguish themselves with a more eclectic, electric and raucous sound. Their musical vision is archaic and demented, providing the listener with a sonic interpretation of the groups namesake. It is something that can only be experienced, not learned. The tracks on Die, Learn, No Way are driven by ramshackle drumming, repetitive guitar riffs and gurgling/floating electronics - with the occasional mumbled vocal and scraped string thrown in for good measure. The LP is pressed in an edition of 420 and housed in a full colour printed sleeve with incredibly surreal and playful artwork." - HP Cycle.

Artist: MANIACS DREAM
Title: S/T
Format: Cass
Label: Lal Lal Lal
Country: Finland
Price: $6.50
"This wild group is a distant relative of Avarus. Maniacs Dream think they are playing punk rock but all they can catch on tape is dizzying, swirling and tumbling lunacy. They dont know how some of the sounds ended up on tape, the sounds have just somehow emerged from somewhere. But still there is a logic deep in all this. Relentless energy and a constant flow of ideas, some of them good, some of them something else. And these are hi-fi 4-track recordings. This is the fresh and exciting sound of the 21st century!" - Lal Lal Lal.

Title: Turku Hold em
Format: CD
Label: Lal Lal Lal
Country: Finland
Price: $16.50
"A 66 minute excerpt from a 2 hour session from 2005. Recorded in the middle of the night after christmas - the result being the most detailed mess this trio has ever made. Bella is banging the drums naked, releasing lots of skin power. Fricara is giving the bass some feedback and Hesedelic is playing guitar very, very fast." - Lal Lal Lal
