Title: Furamingo Josei
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"This hidden gem - likely recorded sometime in the mid 2000s around the time they made Qvaris, according to what NNCKs Pat Murano remembers - is another astonishing output of Harlems seven-member free-form improvisational collective. A luminous string sprung from their collectively trepanned third eyes that will put the listener in an altered state of consciousness as erratically respirating freeform freakouts and lumbering ragas disintegrate and spontaneously re-assemble amidst dense thickets of percussive clatter. This session, previously revealed in an archival post by the always-missed Mutant Sounds blog and later recovered in a forgotten folder, has finally been mastered and put on wax for this one-time pressing vinyl edition." - Holidays.

Title: CINo 51
Format: LP
Label: Kelippah
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Previously, a boy dreams the dreams of many other boys. He meets three other boys and they dream together. Sadly, one of his co-dreamers dreams become nightmare. In an effort to avoid seeing their own dreams relegated back to sleeping, our hero and his fair dreaming compatriots leave their troubled friend to face his nightmares on his own. His nightcap is quickly filled and the boys march forward, eventually seeing all of their dreams made manifest. In this installment our boy has become a man too accustomed to living his boy dreams. When he places his head upon his pillow these days there is nothing, as if there is nothing left to dream of. Perhaps his conspirators sense this? They dream apart now and our heros empty nights only serve to marginalize him from these other boys. Our man must be gifted with powers beyond the ordinary because, much as his boy dreams had become real, so too his man dreams of emptiness soon become his waking life. Unlike his lost troubled co-dreamer from years past, his nightmares are far too mundane for anyone to care about. He dies this way. Special thanks to Charlie Gilmour, millionaire. Hand painted in iondine." - Kelippah.

Title: YTIU
Format: LP
Label: Kelippah
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"No Neck Blues Band are the last of their kind, children of a New York City that no longer exists. Theyve operated in the shadows of Gothams music scene for almost 20 years as likely to perform in art galleries as loft spaces. No Neck Blues Band are revolutionaries, carrying on the search for freedom through improvisation that began after Coltrane liberated jazz. But No Neck Blues Band dont play jazz per se, or any other known idiom for that matter. Their sound has its precedents most notably the genre-blurring, early-70s work of Englands Third Ear Band and German groups Exmagma and recent co-conspirators Embryo. No Neck Blues Band further those explorers investigations of non-Western sounds by infusing them with psychedelic-rock dynamics, the tenets of minimalism and Fluxus-inspired performance.
Each No Neck Blues Band record is a spontaneously composed ritual containing a variety of hard-to-pronounce acoustic instruments, unmoored percussion, guitars, keyboards and various electronics, at once familiar and exotic. While a few members have come and gone, No Neck Blues Band is Keith Connolly, Michiko, Jason Meagher, Pat Murano, David Nuss and David Shuford. No Neck Blues Band activity has been sparse in recent years since their celebrated rehearsal/performance space in Harlem, The Hint House, fell victim to gentrification.
Recorded in 2009 at Faust Studios in Germany, YTIU is the avant-gangs latest offering and finds them in one of their more accessible moods. Only during the second half of Side As Platinum Willows does the band indulge its tendency for atonality. YTIUs second side fittingly dedicated to departed Pink Floyd member Richard Wright is a keyboard-dominated stunner that is more Saucerful of Secrets than The Wall. Mixed by Murano and released in an edition of 300 copies (vinyl, naturally) on his own label, Kelippah, YTIU is another exceptional document by one of the most vital bands New York City has ever birthed. Stream it below, and head here to see if there are any copies left."- Jeff Conklin, East Village Radio. Hand painted with iodine and Aqua-Net. Highly recommended!!

Title: At 6AM We Become The Police
Format: LP
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"NNCK LP soundtrack for the upcoming NNCK movie of the same name, directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer. This album presents recordings from the first NNCK rehearsal space at 195 Chrystie St. NYC in the years 1995-97. Two pieces were recorded for Harmony Korines Gummo soundtrack but never released. Others are quintessential NNCK moments, including the first session joined by Butoh princess Michiko Takahachi, who instantly became a permanent member. The closing of the 195 Chrystie St. studio in 1997 marked the end of NNCK downtown as they set their sites for Harlem. This soundtrack and the upcoming film closely document this transitional period." -Nuss

Title: Clomeim
Format: CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Locust is proud to announce the release of Clomeim, the new studio album from New Yorks No-Neck Blues Band. Clomeim is an evolution, a vital document of change in The No-Neck Blues Bands 15+ years of para-musical activity. This pivotal recording is a creative distillation of the collective at a new and startling saturation point. For three rainy days in March 2007, the seven-headed hydra that is NNCK holed up in Black Dirt Studios, their newly outfitted recording studio in the foothills of upstate New York. With a discipline and a clarity of vision theyve rarely displayed before, the collective channeled all of their energies into hours of recording live, real-time improvisation. After months spent sculpting and recasting the raw material, Clomeim emerged -- a distinct whole, recalling in its parts the communal howl of Algarnas Tradgard, the dead spirit channeling of Geino Yamashiro Gumi, the glacial shadowplay of Heresie era Univers Zero, and krautrock zenith Faust at their finest hour. Clomeim is that rare hybrid -- a rock exterior with a cryptic, experimental core; a dense groover and a burning, exploratory psychedelic grimoire for the new dark ages." -Locust

Title: Live At Kens Electric Lake
Format: Double CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Reissue of this old S@1 48/49 double LP from 1998. "Nearly ten years of swimming up stream through the sonic flotsam & jetsam, the folks have gotten freaky, noise is the new noise, the chin scratchers have joined the metal circus and the No Neck Blues Band remain as relevant today as ever. Their indoor /outdoor audio assaults in upper & lower Manhattan are the stuff of legend but on 1998s Live at Kens Electric Lake the band took a distinct turn, crossed the Canadian border, hooked up w/ some Sunburned folks and made a sudden diaspora to a rural retreat in the country for a full days session of acid-head tribal percussion clatter that is utterly different than anything the band had put on the public record up to that time. Looser, groovier & more in that communal state of mind than ever, NNCKs long out-of-print fifth release from 1998 is a classic testament to the urban dwellers gone wild & ranks as among their finest displays of tribal churn and choogle in the bands 14 year history. Neo-Dada attacks were swapped out for psychedelic vibrations, midrange mystery for outdoor atmospherics. Kens is a peak communal moment for New Yorks most enigmatic, longest running experimental collective." - Locust.

Title: Languid Red Marchetti
Format: LP
Label: Planam
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"Recorded close to the groups inception in 1994, Languid Red Marchetti is the NNCK sound in its empirical form, rhythmically a-linear and fundamentally abstract. While NNCK would go on to become a seven piece performing group, recording and touring extensively, this recording documents a smaller group of four original members engaged in the hermetically sealed sonic exploration which best locates their aesthetic origins. From the groups statement on Languid Red Marchetti: A proto-intuitive Latihan of feedback + pre-scaffold juxtaposition of layers which would come to constitute edifice, and eventually dwelling. Where we would soon occupy this sound, it here was a force in and of itself, its directionless propulsion compounding into substance and landscape. This deluxe edition Planam LP comes with a NNCK generated essay on sound imaging through improvisation and is packaged in a full color jacket depicting The hypothetical dissolve/corruption + subsequent inevitable repetition of Suprematism. Edition limited to 340 copies, with full-color cover, infra-Suprematist inner sleeve and ultra-liner notes insert by Keith Connolly." - Planam.

Title: Gitanjali
Format: 10"
Label: Ri Be Xibalba
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Long delayed, this 10" is one of two vinyl releases from recording sessions at the Chummery late in 2006. The Chummery was the Seattle home to Sun City Girls, Sublime Frequencies, Abduction, and The Sea Donkeys. In fact it was the last residence of Charles Gocher who passed away in there only a few months after this session. Making full use of the Girls diverse collection of instruments, including an upright piano and Alan Bishops gamelan, NNCK improvised throughout one day and night, with all proceedings being documented by a custom 16 channel mobile unit assembled by Ri Bi Xibalba. Together with live concerts in Vancouver, BC and Seattle the previous evenings, the recordings total over five hours. Distilled from this are the best of the Chummery recordings split onto two separate releases. The first is this 10", mastered at 45 RPM for the best fidelity, and pressed on 110 gram of vinyl. Using sundry stringed instruments from SCGs world travels as well as their own traveling set of instruments, the music has an air of delicate yet mysterious Javanese court music - a contrast to what SCG did with many of those same instruments. Of particular prominence on this record are the plaintive sounds of the erhu gliding through. Made up of seven members, NNCKs sound is never crowded and comes off like a well-oiled machine moving with one group mind. When they put aside their individual selves and enter the music, the result switches over into organic creation." - Ri Be Xibalba.

Title: Letters From The Serth
Format: CD
Label: SER
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"1998 release repressed. 2nd No Neck Blues Band CD on Sound @ One. Its a bit of sequel to the their monolithic double CD Letters From The Earth, as it was recorded exactly one year to the day later (Orthodox Easter, 1997), at the same location -- on the roof of their building in Chinatown in the afternoon. Its only a single CD this time because as youll hear at the end, its starts raining. It features the regular NNB crew, plus their newest member, the enigmatic Japanese dancer/icon, Michiko. Cool and oblique packaging that doesnt go out of its way to tell you the artist name or catalog # or anything mundane like that." - FE.

Title: Angelo Mai
Format: CDR
Label: Sound@One
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Angelo Mai is the "occupied" former church in Rome where NNCK played during the Summer of 06. Eerily mirroring an identical occurrence from the previous summers Rome gig, the bands van was broken into while they played inside. Although the perpetrators made off with little more than the bands wardrobe, the back-to-back annual thefts in combo left a palpable distaste for the criminal element of the ancient city. This CDR documents the Rome 06 gig in its entirety, now a soundtrack to the evil deeds of Italian bandits. Any $$$ generated by its sale serves to defray the costs of 2 years of van window replacement, and numerous pairs of man-size Italian underwear. Except for Fusetron, this CDR is for sale only on the bands May 2007 Summer tour. Housed in sturdy cardboard jacket with crack n peel art, lmtd to 200." - Sound@One. Small restock.

"Our late founder John Faheys favorite new band, the No-Necks have actually been enjoying underground hero status in upper/lower Manhattan for nearly a ghost-decade. Seven fairly wooly guys and gals create off-the-cuff shaman musics, often stumbling into a groove as irresistible as the swamp-choogle of vintage Creedence. Blues for fans of Beefheart, early Royal Trux, Dock Boggs and Heliocentric Worlds-era Sun Ra, Sticks and Stones presents the fractal sound-image of No Neck as captured in snapshot form by producer Jerry Yester (Tom Waits, Tim Buckley, Lovin Spoonful) at his studio in the Ozarks." - Revenant.

Title: Letters From The Earth
Format: Double CD
Label: Very Friendly
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Co-released with the Ser label, this double CD outputs 111 or so minutes worth of this groups dizzying array of sonic blattage, cable disruption, tribal tranceadelics and trip or drone aesthetic. Have heard that this was largely recorded on a NYC rooftop, but you certainly cant hear any breeze -- there is, however, some serious driftage going on all over the place. Out-of-nowhere double album magnum opuses tend to go on to have genre defining significance, and its easy to see this one having research visibility for decades to come, as the pinnacle of its contemporary scene. Packaged in a slimline jewel case (to assure those worried this thing would come wrapped in tree bark or something), with an intriguing multi-page booklet of almost Gysin-esque hieroglyphics."- Forced Exposure (1996).
