Artist: SHADOW RING, THE
Title: Life Review (1993-2003)
Format: Double CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"The Shadow Ring formed in the seaside town of Folkestone, England in 1993. Over the course of a decade, and through eight LPs, Graham Lambkin, Darren Harris and later Tim Goss scraped out a unique musical pathway for themselves, armed with only the barest of tools. With each release the Shadow Ring presented themselves as a group in constant flux. Naive acoustic improvisations, dour bedroom sci-fi epics, cryptic D.I.Y. theatre and glacial electronic soundscapes all became fair game in their hands. The group recorded for some of the premier underground labels of the era: Siltbreeze, Corpus Hermeticum, Swill Radio and their own Dry Leaf Discs were all at one time or another called home. The Shadow Ring were also champions of the absurd -- never playing live in their home country, they instead performed 23 shows across the US between 1995-97. The life of the Shadow Ring finally came to pass on the banks of the Hudson River in 2003. Life Review offers a celebration of the Shadow Rings oeuvre -- from the green chaos of 1993s Dont Open The Window 7" on through to the austerity of 2003s Im Some Songs LP. Featuring material from each of their albums: City Lights, Put The Music In Its Coffin, Wax-Work Echoes, Live In U.S.A., Hold Onto I.D., Lighthouse, Lindus and Im Some Songs, alongside 7" A and B sides, comp appearances, and a clutch of previously unreleased live and studio work, Life Review is an anthology that will serve both the aged fan, and the curious newcomer. Expertly mastered by long-time enthusiast Bhob Rainey, Life Review flushes out the rich sonic detail of the Shadow Rings music like never before. Housed in a deluxe six-panel digipak, with an accompanying 16 page color booklet of photos, flyers, sleeve art etc, Life Review also offers an untainted visual history of the group. With 34 tracks -- personally chosen by Graham Lambkin, and a running time of 154 minutes, Life Review offers the perfect chance to say a final farewell. One more time." -KYE. Very highly recommended!

Title: Remains Unchanged
Format: Double LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Remains Unchanged is the long-time-coming archival overview of the Shadow Ring. Spanning the full decade of their existence, Remains Unchanged offers an alternate account of the groups labor, told through 20 never-before-heard tracks across two LPs. From the lumbering monotony of 1993s Squawk with Me to the funereal glory of 2003s And What If, Remains Unchanged grants the listener rare access to the secret history of Cheritons greatest underground export. Mastered from the original tapes by Jason Lescalleet, Remains Unchanged arrives in a full color high gloss gatefold sleeve, with fold-out wall poster in an edition of 1000 copies." - Kye.

Title: Hold Onto I.D.
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Threadbare acoustic vibologists flesh out their sonic boneage with some nimble electronic gadgetism. Result: sounds to truly chuff all comers. Teeth-yellowing biscuits-and-tea from Cheriton, England." - Siltbreeze. One of their best! From 1997.

Title: Im Some Songs
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Posthumous final LP recorded in 2002 that completed the 10 year life cycle of The Shadow Ring. This LP was recorded in Poughkeepsie NY over a 3 week period. The atmosphere is tense and stoned. A depressing joke -- one punchline after another. Im Some Songs was recorded by Darren Harris, Graham Lambkin and Tim Goss -- a record which pays its own tribute to its own fallen heroes." - Swill Radio. Both drearily suffocating and absolutely life affirming - record of the year thus far.. easy. 2007 release back in stock.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SHADOW RING, THE
Title: Lighthouse
Format: Double LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"To enter the world of the Shadow Ring is to enter a surreal anti-world of bizarre song structure. Lighthouse will rank with Trout Mask Replica and Tago Mago as both one of the most avant garde and the most eccentric double LPs of all time. Unlike those two records, Lighthouse features no instrumental pyrotechnics, instead relying on odd sonic combinations, startling lyrics, and a very painterly use of minimal studio technology. Absolutely essential listening if you are interested in modernist stretching of song form with extraordinary results." - Swill Radio. Incredible release back in stock! Features Adris Hoyos and Scott and Karla IFCO.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SHADOW RING, THE
Title: Lindus
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Long delayed follow-up to Lighthouse. Over the last decade no other band have prompted such strong reaction as The Shadow Ring. Loved or hated, their unique and powerful sound has been totally impossible to ignore. Lindus sees that sound polarized to its logical and most satisfying extreme. Strange, claustrophobic sound-worlds build and overlap, creating a listening environment that is uncompromising, disturbing, yet always original. The mood is bleak and deflated throughout, providing a stark contrast to the carnival that was Lighthouse. The simple use of synths, electronics, tapes and voice has never been more effective. The Shadow Ring are that rare thing: a true underground band unaffected by trend or whim, and Lindus is their most supreme statement yet. Special edition of 500 copies." - Swill Radio. Highly Recommended!
