Artist: A BAND
Title: April Twelfth Nineteen Ninety-Two
Format: CDR
Label: Music Mundane
Country: UK
Price: $12.00
"Vintage 70+ minutes 15 piece A Band session, recorded straight to 2-track cassette in 1992. Performers include A-stalwarts like Sticky Foster, Stewart Walden, Neil Campbell, Jim Plaistow and Vince Earimal alongside some less familiar names. The session opened w/ a driving rock piece in tutti, then devolved into a series of solo, then duo, then trio, quartet, etc pieces, w/ performers and their respective instruments drawn out of a hat. Then to close, a 35 minute concert-style piece called "Just past not-too-boring" where performers started playing one at a time, entering the recording room a minute each apart (order was again decided by pulling names out of a hat), and then once everyone was in there, departing in the order they entered (no idea how we organised this, but listening to the tape it seems to have worked). During this last piece, Will Irvine was obviously bored by playing music, so decided hed try to undress and grope as many people as possible, as a kind of disruptive element. Sounds like the beginnings of a comedy gay sex orgy on the tape, w/ Sticky commentating in his own inimitable style." -N. Campbell/ Music Mundane.

Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"Recorded over two days in late Summer 1991 at the Canning Factory, Nottingham, England. After a Live LP (on Siltbreeze, rec. 1990/91), a 7" and a self-released CD (rec. 91), Qbico proudly present the only studio rec. of this A-mazing Band. It features two young promising artists: Neil Campbell and Richard Youngs (now well-renowned master of sonic experiments), along with other brave and intrepid musicians which were part of a radical and unfortunately pretty obscure scene. As for the music, its very varied and it changes moods every few minutes (a tight editing by Richard Young, a l Faust tapes ): it ranges from collective freak-outs, surreal interludes, hypnotic drones, electronic motifs and strange experimental passages... thered be one word whichd give a better idea of the music on this special rocket: wild." - QBICO.

Price: $13.00
"Transatlantic gruesome team-up of Schizoide (one leg Dirk Freenoise, one arm swinging the axe of The Zoid and partly braindead) and Sharki Face (part-time cheerleader in Crack WAR and mysteriously part of the neon entity known as Caroliner Rainbow). Stuttering no-wave feedback and molten noise lava snorted at intense volumes. Like throwing slow-motion snowballs and gargling absinth in the snow, weve tried but were not any wiser. Strings are raped, datacrushing effect swirl and non-wave dancefloor-friendly noise clouds. Will have you air guitaring all over the place!

Limited edition of only 100 copies, of which most have probably disappeared on tour." - Audiobot.

Artist: A BURNING BUS
Title: Anti-/Paranoia Paradise
Format: 7"
Label: Harvest
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"A Burning Bus is iconoclast/legend Don Howlands latest musical address from his mountain compound, an exhilarating blast of oppressive fear and hopelessness. With beloved bands like the Gibson Bros and the Bassholes, Mr. Howland has spent over 25 years on the fringes, preaching his misanthropic sermons to a loud but minimalist blend of blues, garage, noise, lo-fi, and whatever else served his muse. Burning Buss debut 7" enhances Howlands trademark treble-tastic menacing sound with three guitars, bass and drums. The results are as huge, thick and engulfing as a fog rolling through the Blue Ridge Mountains. On the A-side, Jayne Countys Paranoia Paradise is ratcheted to its greatest possible twitchy anthemic potential, and the group really cuts loose on the free form flip, where effects pedals, over-driven amps, echo and feedback provide the soundtrack to your own bouts of early in the AM isolationalism." - Harvest.

Title: 333
Format: Triple LP
Label: SS
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"For S.S. Records fiftieth release we are very, very, very proud to announce the A Frames 333 triple album. Back in 2000, when SS, Sr. first saw the A Frames, he knew he had to start a new record label to release their stuff. And with the help of SS, Jr., that is what he did. From the Plastica 45 to two critically aclaimed full lengths and a couple more 45s, the A Frames/S.S. relationship remained so solid that when the A Frames jumped to Sub Pop records, the S.S. production team of Chris Woodhouse and Scott Soriano went along for the ride. So now, after years of talk, SS and the A Frames have gathered their singles and e.p.s together with a whole bunch of demo recordings, outtakes, and unreleased tracks for a 42 song, triple album set. "Wow! Forty two songs, that is a lot!" you are thinking, "Is all of it good?" Damn it, yes! First off, 333 comps all the songs that appeared on 7"s released by S.S. and Royal Records, plus one compilation track. Second, almost every A Frames song was demod on 4-track before it was played out and recorded proper. By the time the public got to hear the demod songs, some of them had been radically altered or rearranged...and some never made it past demo. We listened to dozens and dozens of demos and cherry-picked the best and most unique. And, third, from the A Frames first recordings in 2000 and those with Woodhouse to the abandoned AF4 LP, the band has generated plenty of outtakes, quality music that didnt quite fit on an album or never got paired with a B-side for a 45. We also dug through those. All in all, the A Frames and SS sorted through nearly 80 songs in order to create this statement of a set. From the onset the A Frames have blown away fans and critics. Their first two singles received much praise, setting up their 2002 debut album for many mentions as the record of the year, called "one of the few great American rock records" by Thurston Moore and Byron Coley. Their second album received even more praise, as did the handful of singles they after, as well as their third album Black Forest. The A Frames are one of the few bands never to have released a bad or mediocre record. We thought about that when assembling 333, for we didnt want this one to be a dud. We are very confident that like the neutron bomb that blasted the A Frames off, we have one hell of a post-punk explosion here." -SS

Title: For Patti Smith
Format: CD
Label: Freewaysound
Country: New Zealand
Price: $16.00
"A Handful of Dust are a duo [and occasionally a trio] of New Zealand improvising noise artists. In 1993 they fired an early blast in the so-called free noise barrage heard round the world, with the recording of the no-fingers-on-the-strings opus Concord. 24 October 1999 found them playing live at the Puntersí Club, Melbourne, Australia, recorded by Marco Fusinato and mixed live by Greg Wadley. The resulting two long tracks of beautiful sonic violence were dedicated to the Queen of post-jazz rock improv Rimbaudian sense-derangement herself, and titled I Am Gods Finger and [From a Soundtrack to] Babelfield. They feature Bruce Russell and Alastair Galbraith performing a mix of guitar, violin, long wires and electronics. No stone is left unrotated, no rock left un-detourned in this top-of-their-game sizzling sound-smash. This tag-team of post-everything sound improvisers cant be easily beaten at the spontaneous improvisation of soundworlds which leave the senses literally grasping at straws." - Freewaysound.

"A Handful of Dust is the duo of New Zealand noisemakers Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and Alastair Galbraith. Incorporating elements of drone, spoken word, minimalism, improvisation and utilizing everything from violin to toy telephone, The Dust crafts a genuinely unique style of free-form music. “From A Soundtrack To The Anabase Of St-John Perse” a tape originally released via Russell’s own Corpus Hermeticum imprint nearly two decades ago finds the duo under the influence of the 1924 poem of the same name and at the height of their creative experimentation." - Imminent Frequencies.

Label: No Fun
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Now Gods, Stand Up For Bastards/The Philosophik Mercury is a double-disc re-issue of two limited and long out-of-print works by this obscure enigma. Plunging straight into the chasm of ultra-minimalist abrasion and chaotic improv, these two records stand as unrelenting and engrossing epics of guitar feedback, disintegrating electronic sound, string-shredding violin abuse, and other facets of impassioned iconoclasm. Recommended for lovers of AMM, Henry Flynt, and Hijokaidan. A Handful of Dust are a group consisting of a core duo of Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and Alastair Galbraith. Formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1990." -No Fun

Title: Panegyric

Country: New Zealand
Price: $14.00
"An onslaught of extended improvised noise workouts: senseless,messy,directionless and ear-wracking.... for improvisation to be a risk the performers need to be striving for a vision, need to be striving to take us somewhere. On these recordings however it doesnt sound like any striving is going on at all. This sort of self-indulgent,directionless improvisation irritates me not for its rejection of structural convention,or its grating timbre,but because of the self-satisfied absence of ambition it embodies.  I cannot help but feel swindled - I can hear no passion, no giving, no magic, no sharing, no dynamics, no vulnerability. Just the air-tight armour of arrogance. Im sure the band members are marvellous people personally: but musically this is obnoxious and not in a good way" - Henry Lauer/ Heathen Harvest. Alastair Galbraith: glass harmonica, violin; Bruce Russell: clavioline, guitar. Recorded live at Lines Of Flight 2006.

Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"One of the all-time great Toronto singles, this actually had decent local chart success in early 67. The hits a high-energy slice of quick-paced freakbeat elevated to greatness by an absolutely stinging lead guitar attack, while the eponymous flipside delivers an insistent mid-tempo jangle built around a haunting chorus. Utterly essential for those who dig classic mid-60s garage sounds. Remastered with a brand new picture sleeve." - Ugly Pop.

Artist: A TRIO
Title: Live In Nickelsdorf
Format: LP
Label: Roaratorio
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"If the city of Beirut doesnt leap to mind as a hotbed of avant-garde musical activity, listen up: since 2005, the Al Maslakh label (translation: The Slaughterhouse) has been documenting far-thinking sounds from the small but vital Lebanese scene. The A Trios first release, Music to Our Ears, was one of the most startling debuts of 2011; now, Roaratorio is proud to present their second album (and first vinyl release): Live in Nickelsdorf, recorded at the Konfrontationen Festival in 2012. While far from the first to employ extended techniques on their respective instruments, Mazen Kerbaj (trumpet), Sharif Sehnaoui (acoustic guitar), and Raed Yassin (doublebass) create a music that bears little relation to others who traffic in the same outer realms. Heavily textural, frequently perplexing, sometimes unsettling but always suffused with a provocative intelligence, this is the sound of a collective ur-mind that favors the long gesture over pointillistic strokes. Their capacity for generating aural illusions -- one would be hard-pressed to identify the instrumentation as three acoustic instruments, with no electronics or overdubs whatsoever -- is astounding, but its their skill at harnessing these uncanny tones into a consistently engaging and powerful sound-world that elevates the A Trio into the front rank of contemporary improvisational groups. A limited edition of 350 copies. Download coupon included." - Roaratorio.

Title: s/t

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Out of Metz, France comes the ugly and brutal noise-punk of A.H. KRAKEN. Their name is an amalgam of a facist dictator and a sea monster, and their sound is a wild, intense blur of bludgeoning rhythms, industrial clatter, scraping guitars, and caterwauling vocals. Citing influences as disparate PiL, Motoerhead, US Maple, Suicide, Flipper, The Shaggs, and Chrome, A.H. Kraken could implode or explode at any given second. Everything is yelled in barely intelligible French, so its impossible to say what theyre bellowing about, though one song is titled "Kevin Costner Est Un Acteur Americain." When bassist/vocalist S.J. was asked, he assured that the lyrics are "all about peace and love." Be skeptical. A.H. Kraken are pure, unrestrained throttle-burn. They create landscapes of sound with instruments that are obviously getting the shit beat out of them." - In The Red.

Title: Die Grüne Reise - The Green Journey
Format: CD/DVD
Label: Tangram
Country: France
Price: $24.00
"Remastered deluxe 2007 release. Achim Reichels A.R. & Machines genius German Krautrock/space-rock project Die Grüne Reise - The Green Journey finds new life. Originally issued by Polydor in Germany in 1971, Reichel played all the instruments here, and produced the entire thing himself in partnership with Frank Dostal, who also penned the English lyrics and had previously done time with Reichel in the popular West German beatgruppe, The Rattles. The Green Journey is a masterpiece of doubly/triply-tracked, tape-machined, echo-plexed and looped space-guitar-madness, with a host of skronk, thunderous percussion, tribal whoops, and head-busting, three-dimensional, lysergic lyrics. As the artist himself proclaimed, "I was just trying something out with my guitar, when out of the blue, the Akai X-3300 began to repeat endless cascades of guitar echoes. My guitar suddenly sounded like ten." Initially, The Green Voyage was intended as "a soundtrack for an imaginary movie," and this has now been achieved by some 60 students of the Lippe and Höxters University of Applied Sciences, who, over the course of two terms produced a 42-minute video for the ten album tracks. Theres also a 10-minute "making of" film as well. Housed in a 6-panel, tri-fold dexluxe digipack with liner notes in German and English written by Jörg Gülden." - Tangram.

"A limited reissue of the Essential Entertainment EP by Belgian band AA. Originally released in 1981 by Sexy Robot Records and limited to 900 copies, Essential Entertainment is an unrecognized gem of the early post-punk era. A unique and compelling sense of restless dread and frustration emanates from their stuttering grooves, spiky guitar arpeggios, and disturbed mutter-to-shout vocals. The music is clearly inspired by its peers: Joy Division, the Fall, and label mates the Cultural Decay. Essential Entertainment was AAs first and only release.

"Mika Vainio and Stephen OMalley are both seminal figures in the experimental underground having established themselves in the epoch-defining acts Pan Sonic and SunnO))). While they explored different worlds, one abstracted guitar drone metal, the other hard rhythms and analog atmospheres, there was always an underlying thread which bound both acts: massive blocks of sound, vast cavernous spaces, a sense of drama and the foreboding along with a deep exploration of the physical experience unlike any previously experienced. Pan Sonic and SunnO))) first collaborated together on a Suicide cover version for a Blast First Petite series in 2007/2008, and following this, Mika and Stephen decided to collaborate further with what eventually became the ÄÄNIPÄÄ sessions. Recorded at Einstürzende Neubautens Andere Baustelle Tonstudio in Berlin and mixed at Avast! (Soundgarden, Earth) in Seattle over an extended period, the results see individual approaches coalesce into a monumental whole. The signature motifs of both players are to be found here: the sparse, crushing rhythms of Vainios minimalist techno alongside the black-hole drones of OMalleys guitar workouts. It is the alchemical combination of these elements that shifts this release into a new world of burning intensity. At once unholy and emotional, Through a Pre-Memory takes the listener on a vast journey. On "Toward All Thresholds" immense bleak landscapes succumb to sparse glacial rhythms. "Mirror of Mirror Dreams" holds itself in reflective terrain as string arrangements by Eyvind Kang are played with Moriah Neils (contrabass) and Maria Scherer Wilsons (cello), providing desolate strokes to the cleansing ambient landscape preceding it. A new level of terror is reached on the epic "Muse" and "Watch over Stillness/Matters Principle," as the writings of Russian modernist poet Anna Akhmatova are put to music and sung/spoken/screamed by Alan Dubin (Khanate/GNAW/O.L.D.).

Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Maurizio Abate is a self-taught guitarist, active since the 2000s, with a distinctive approach to experimentation. Since 2006 he has done several recording sessions, released on some LPs under his own name and other collective groups, and has collaborated with David Vanzan and Virginia Genta (Jooklo), Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple), Luca Massolin (Golden Cup), and many others. He is currently involved in the project Eternal Zio and plays live in the project BeMyDelay. This record aggregates many of his recent influences, from the meditative Krautism of Popol Vuh to an inalienable passion for blues guitar. Some of the tracks were sketches that he worked on, others were the result of long improvisations which were rearranged and mixed later. The record also features contributions from good friends such as Rella The Woodcutter, BeMyDelay and Alberto Boccardi, and features an excerpt from an interview with Aldous Huxley on "Towards the Outside."" - Black Sweat.

"Shit is cliché, but ya cant fight the fact that time changes EVERYTHING (or wait, maybe its money?). Either way: were pretty old but not so old weve forgotten the cradle days of early Abe Vigoda shows when they only liked Smashing Pumpkins, short shorts, and boating shoes, and their sets were short spiky blasts of post-Unwound lo-fi outsider-punk (a la the Sky Route/Star Roof LP). That was a long time ago. But like all good bands the Vigodans have re-invented themselves a half dozen times over since then, and its been a totally rad ride to witness the evolution/transformation, especially since their journeys culminated in the total sparkling tropic magic sunbath of Skeleton, the best AV record ever. Years of fiddling with delay pedal settings and intricate bass/drums equations somehow resulted in a weird, bright, upbeat island punk sound thats as catchy and life-affirming as it is tripped-out and overwhelming.

I believe he was friends with Haino (who wrote liner notes for Vol 6 of that series), although there are no available recordings of them together." - FE.

Kaoru Abe: (alto sax). Sabu Toyozumi: (drums, percussion). Rec. February 25 and April 15 & 30, 1978 live at Gaya, Tokyo, Japan. Unrelease rec. available here for the 1st time after more then 25 years. "Long ago, when I started listening to free jazz records and was blowing on my alto, the abrasive sax sound of Kaoru Abe immediately fascinate me and he instantly became one of my hero... by then Id have NEVER imagined that one day Id have released an unissued record by him. This dream come true is now possible thanks to my dear friend Sabu, who discovered these very well recorded magical live sessions. Here, youd still hear Abe piercing sound (even if in this period he suffered terribly from physical and mental pain), few months before his tragic death for acute stomach rupture (official report, but his habit was known...). Unfortunately, he died too young, at 29 years old, on Sept. 9, 1978. His solo activity had been documented on at least more then 15 releases (between LP and CDs), but his collaborations had been less documented: three seminal releases in duo with guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi, another duo DLP with Sabu, a duo/trio from 1970/71, a duo LP with bassist Motoharu Yoshizawa and finally group playing with Derek Bailey and Milford Graves. So this new duo live sets are much more welcome. He was definitively one of the greatest improvisor from Japan and Sabu with his creative and powerful drumming, the ideal partner to let him freely express all his intense emotions. Raw energy, aggressive playing, heavy stuff." - QBICO.

And when you read the section of the book entitled "Record Shop Skulkers," youll know whyThe City Is Ablaze! and Record Store Day are a perfect match. Ablaze! fanzine was published in Manchester and Leeds in the late 80s and early 90s by Karren Ablaze!. The best bits of this notorious and outspokenly passionately zine are now available in book format. Alongside hundreds of zine pages, The City Is Ablaze! features new writings by Karren and other members of the Ablaze! team, as well as interviews with fanzine writers John Robb (Rox),Dave Haslam (Debris), and Richard Johnson (Grim Humour), essays by DIY cultural commentators Lucy Cage and Deborah Withers, a re-examination of the Riot Grrrl movement, and an epilogue by Gary Jarman.

The City Is Ablaze! reads like a musical history of the late 80s and early 90s, a history that could only be obtained by surfing the sliproads, sneaking backstage at a thousand shows, sleeping on strangers floors and living to type up the tales of the sounds that defined an era." - Ablaze!

Title: Gone Aiwa
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"ABOVE GROUND was a fleeting yet no less important piece in the awesome DIY Christchurch scene of the early 80s. Together only for a short period in 1983, the band was comprised of BILL DIREEN (VACUUM / BILDERS), CAROL DIREEN, MARYROSE CROOK (MAX BLOCK / RENDERERS) and STUART PAGE (AXEMEN). They combined a ubiquitous and detached Velvet Underground vibe and a smattering of early Modern Lovers keyboard angst with some kind of Sky Saxon / Seeds psychedelic mojo. Above Ground was a formidable outfit in their brief existence and deserve more than a mere footnote in the history of one of the most vibrant scenes to exist in the past 30 years. Gone Aiwa originally saw life as a limited-edition cassette made to order and sold to various shops and at the occasional gig. So unless you were there (and chances are, you werent), its a good bet this material wilal be fresh to your ears-though two tracks did see the light of day on the Direen / Bilders retrospective CD, Max Quitz, released by Flying Nun in the mid 90s. Gone Aiwa the album is finally realized, and what a wonderful thing it is to behold. Just goes to show its never too late. Includes digital download coupon." - Siltbreeze.

Format: LP

Price: $29.00
"Disallow is an art-record presenting the recording of a collaborative performance by poet-artist-architect Vito Acconci and New York group New Humans. Taking place within the sculpture installation Disassociate by artist Mika Tajima at Elizabeth Dee Gallery, New York, the release also includes the complete aural components that were present during the exhibition and live performances. For the public performances and private sessions within the exhibition, sculptures in the space were reconfigured to create divided recording spaces drawn structurally from Jean Luc Godards Sympathy for the Devil, an experimental film documenting the contentious making of the Rolling Stones legendary song and its parallel politics. During this improvised public performance with New Humans, Vito Acconci read permutations of text from a set of seminal audio works from the 1970s, recombining lines and phrases on the move against New Humans acute and minimally deadpan sonic and rhythm progression. Vito Acconci has been a vital presence in contemporary art since the late 1960s; his confrontational and ultimately political works have evolved from writing through conceptual art, bodyworks, performance, film, video, multimedia installation and now architecture and design. New Humans is a New York-based noise band and moniker for artist Mika Tajimas collaborative music, art, and actions. NHs recent releases continue a working use of piercing drones, sheer static, and low bass frequencies. Members are currently Howie Chen, Mika Tajima, and Eric Tsai. The release also includes two subtle sound pieces by New Humans that were the ongoing sound elements in the Disassociate installation in which the performances and recordings occurred. The first, a popular song stripped leaving only the minimal register of static noise, it now resembles the anonymous crackling prelude of a vinyl record. The second, the humming drone produced by a guitar amp in waiting becomes substance without performance. Edition limited to 300 copies with full-color sleeve." - Planam.

(2002), and has released his own solo album MMMM - My Metal Machine Music (2004). Acid Mothers Temple & The Pink Ladies Blues is an underground punk blues trio composed by two guitarists (Tsuchy, Magic Aum Gigi) with one drum (Mai Mai). Their first album: Acid Mothers Temple & The Pink Ladies Blues featuring the Sun Love and the Heavy Metal Thunder is a deep raw trip and a wild transgression of mother nature filtered by the occult powers! This love potion is made by thunder guitars, power drums, plus various electronics and acoustic sounds, and vocals. If reviewers have often compared the sound of Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso UFO close to Amon Düül 2, so, Acid Mothers Temple & The Pink Ladies Blues sounds close to Amon Düül 1.

Featuring 10 pieces of The Pyramids taken from their 3 albums and unreleased (!) recordings (including their first live recording in Holland!). Notably, The Pyramids had even stayed in African countries like Morocco, Ghana, Kenya and Ethiopia and studied real African culture and music there in the early 1970s. Do you know other African-American jazz musicians who had done such a road trip in the early 1970s?? Also featuring the never-heard pre-Pyramids, P. Sanders and Strata East recording as The Collective, and 4 pieces from the late 70s to 00s, recording as Idris Ackamoor Quartet/Ensemble. Sixteen pieces in total.

"When one goes digging into the caverns of free jazz, underground, DIY, improvised or noise music, the Los Angeles Free Music Society is a group that youll find crawling alongside the greatest artists in its under appreciated history... and future! ACNoDE ONE was created by two of the LAFMSs key members: Dr. Id and Ju Suk Reet Meate of Smegma fame. Recorded in 1977 as a hand-made cassette, side A was Dr. Id and friends and side B was all Ju Suk. With influences ranging from Beefheart, Nervous Norvus, and Ron Geesin through the whole ESP catalog, this is one of the defining examples of the LAFMS sound. They travel with ease from Zappaesque freak outs, teeth rattling tape loop drones; psychedelic kiddy record cut ups, to a beautiful bowed bass solo in the vein of Scott la Faro or Henry Grimes. It marks an important turning point in Smegmas development. As Ju Suk points out, It was a time of great transition. With only one Smegma "gig" in two years, our music was going inward. The reel to reel tape decks at the time lent themselves to wild misuse... they were very exciting times experimentally." -Poobah.

Guitars were no option, because the amplifiers would mar the stage. The Actor caught the attention of cult cassette label Trumpett through their powerful live act and were signed to the label in April 1982. Their first, self-produced album was released in September 1982 as Exploded View (an exploded view of a cassette tape was featured on the sleeve): ten quite simply arranged synthpop tracks that were dynamic and danceable, with lyrics sung both in English and German, relating to the modern world, fashion, dancing, fame, appearance, and self-image. The track featured on this flexi-disc, Unreal Personality, is the opening track of Exploded View and the archetypical The Actor song, with lyrics directly referring to the bands name.

"Dark Entries is excited to release the 30th anniversary edition of ADN CKRYSTALLs debut album JazzMad. ADN Ckrystall is the moniker of synthesizer wizard ERICK MONCOLLIN from Tarbes, France. In 1977 Moncollin spent time in Paris experimenting with synthesizers, jamming alongside composers Vangelis and Tim Blake. It was here that he obtained a prototype of the Korg MS-20, a legendary synthesizer. While attending art school in Tolouse, Erick met BENOIT HUTIN, who offered a studio for the recording of the JazzMad album. The entire album was recorded over a 4 day period in 1980. The sound of JazzMad revolves around the synthesizer, utilizing the instrument to all its capacities. ADN was Influenced by New Wave bands that incorporated keyboards into their songs like Gary Numan/Tubeway Army, and Simple Minds, as well as Prog Rock and Krautrock bands such as Hawkwind, Heldon, Gong, and Neu!. The result is an unconventional and discordant conglomeration of synthesizers, drum machines, and vocals that cradle the edge of the brain. Most of the songs are long instrumental pieces but when Erick sings his lyrics favor love, drugs, and science fiction themes. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley directly from the original master tapes. Each LP comes in an exact replica of the original jacket with paintings and illustrations designed by the band. This 30th anniversary edition also includes a zine filled with unreleased photos, original artwork and lyrics." - Dark Entries.

The Australian artist Paul Adolphus recorded the album in Kyoto/Japan, playing guitar, vocals, flutes, shakuhachi. Totally vibed-out "personal" folk-psych. "My first visit to Japan was in 1968 after living in India and Sri Lanka. My wife at the time arrived in Kyoto, and had our first child there. We really loved it. We returned to Sweden then went back to Kyoto and had our second child there. We lived in a two hundred year old farm house in a village outside Kyoto. It was a great scene at the time. Japanese artists, bohemians, and visiting foreigners making art music poetry etc. I was  playing music with different people, then developed a musical relationship with Mitsu Harada. We did concerts and toured to other cities in Japan together. Before leaving Japan Mitsu organised to record the album together. Mitsus father was the grand master of a calligraphy school. In a large room in the school Mitsu set up mikes and a big stereo recorder consul. Most of the playing was by Mitsu and myself, an American friend played a little guitar and percussion to fill some holes. A group of friends sat around, so it was a bit of a living room concert feel. It was my material, Mitsu engineered as well as playing. I think there were 200 copies pressed, the covers were hand made, so it was released into the small arts community of Kyoto and Tokyo. Not long after the recording I travelled with the family to Australia, I had been away from here for a decade. I worked on a lot of projects here, composing for theatre and dance. I had a group called Living Music - an African drummer, Indian tabla, didjeridoo, winds etc. It was early days, not too many people were ready for world music."

"Detroit Rock circa 1976 meant one thing and one thing only:  the ready-made light beer commercial sounds of Night Moves by Silver Bullet Bob Seger.  And if that one fact is not enough to convince you that the high time, high-tide of high-powered Motor City rock was definitively dead mid-Me-Decade then you can see also Glenn Frey.  However, there remained many ideological hold-outs; bright spots amongst the burned-out crags of Detroits blighted skyline:  Sonics Rendezvous, Death, The Dogs, Lightnin.   But the band that came the closest in true garage group style to recapturing the excitement and spirit of the Grande Ballroom with one fell double-sided swoop before hopping a bus-ride back to nowhere was Adrenalin.  Looking, from surviving video footage, like the featured entertainment at a Hamtramck Junior Prom, but sounding like a junior varsity MC5, the Guitar Army rampage on Rock N Roll Screamer reeks of amphetamines and A2 residue; the gymnastic histrionics of Sonic Smith most particularly.  The flip-sides no slouch either.  Easily in the same league as City Slang, Raw Power or Borderline, Rock N Roll Screamer, originally issued without a picture sleeve on the obscure local Fiddlers imprint, is the happiest of accidents as Adrenalins intentions were never proto-punk glory.  The best record I dont own and, in my mind, the best justification for the continued search for obscure and unknown records.  BUY IT NOW!" -Collin Makamson.

2012 repress. "The first full length release by the UK based Aeolian String Ensemble. Although originally set to be issued on the legendary United Dairies label, this material has now been remastered, includes a new piece, and is instead available in the US. The work was produced by David Kenny, a long time collaborator and engineer on many Nurse With Wound and Current 93 projects. Consisting of two evolving compositions, Lassithi (1992) and Elysium (a specially commissioned new work), this CD offers a more linear and fluid overview of this fascinating material than that of excerpted or early compilation appearances. Inspired by the tonal phenomenon associated with the Aeolian harp (a box shaped instrument with numerous strings tuned in unison on which the wind produces varying harmonic excitation over the same fundamental tone), The Aeolian String Ensembles post production (harmonic extraction) on sounds generated by the strings of various materials, recorded at sympathetic locations, create a hazy, shifting, and spacious atmosphere for your total aural immersion. Also features mind-bending cover illustrations by Christoph Heemann." - Robot.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"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

"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.

It seems that everything about this record is old, and Van Luijk also had his grandmother contribute voice. This record, the music that is on it, is not from these times. It just isnt. Af Ursin plays music that sounds old, like browsing sepia toned photographs from, well, why not, your grandparents. Piano, saxophones, drums, percussion, the voice, some extra crackles, hardly any electronics around here (if any at all), although in a piece like Sortilege I am not too sure of that. Recorded on analogue tape, obviously, this is truly a beautiful record. Nothing new, but aged beauty." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.

"At the same Timo van Luyck releases a new LP as Af Ursin, if Im not mistaken his second or third. Van Luyck produces all the sounds himself on his records, which are finely woven together. He plays electronica to process sounds from a flute, voices, glass harmonium and on side two even, a drum-machine and bass guitar. Here, on this side, things are jumpy, perhaps even a bit krautrock like, which doesnt sound unlike old HNAS records. But for the most part this record (four lengthy pieces in total) contains wonderful extended drone music, that is alike some of the UK counterparts, but Af Ursin adds a much more musical dimension to it, through a much clearer use of instruments and a likewise much clearer production. Great stuff for those who like expand beyond the ordinary drone music." - Frans De Ward. Edition of 350. Highly Recommended!

Pulpit rock "Three introspective instrumental compositions performed on English horn, flute, percussion, double bass, and Hammond organ, recorded and mixed by TIMO VAN LUIJK. Stripped-down with slow-moving sounds, less layering, nearing modern classical music more than drone." -La Scie Doree. "When he has his solo hat on, Timo van Luijk calls himself Af Ursin and his favorite format of release is the LP too. His covers are beautiful, just like the In Camera releases actually, but do not contain an awful lot of information, just like the In Camera releases actually. Af Ursins music is less based on electronics, but more along the lines of acoustic instruments. Van Luijk uses a relatively small palette of sounds and works with them. I believe not in an analogue manner, but through the use of the computer. The a-side has the side long piece Sylphide, which seems to be build from a trombone or trumpet sound. A simple tune, repeated over and over again, with some pauses in between. Say the way Brian Eno did his early ambient pieces of loops of varying length, but then even more stripped down, reduced, minimal and perhaps also more classical. Taciturne, the first piece on the b-side is with flute sounds, but also with some highly obscured field recordings of objects moving in the far distant. Elegie is then another piece for another instrument. It seems an organ of some kind, like a childrens organ, or a harmonium, but perhaps pitched up a bit. I am not sure, but here to we have the same layered aspects as we had on the other side and yet at the same time this layering doesnt mean its crowded. It has that same wonderful tranquil character as the other two pieces, or, in fact the two In Camera records. I play all of this music when I got up this autumn morning, mainly playing music and watching clouds pass outside, making darkness and sunlight change all the time, in a similar slow motion. This is just perfect. I should take a day off, play all Af Ursin records, In Cameras other two records and all of the Mirror releases." - Frand de Waard, Vital Weekly.

"Drooling Hillbilly Metal, Sea Urchin Psychedelia, Yukon Freak Thrash, and Beatnik Swamp Drone are musical genres, like dozens of others, which are in the infancy of their developments. Yet someone has finally harnessed the inside track to claiming a few of these elusive styles as their own creations. AFCGT is a rather convenient vernacular for A Frames and Climax Golden Twins but if youre hopeful that the usual sources are stocked with facts and figures about this outfit, think again. Theres not much information available on AFCGT. The cretinous calliope that is AFCGT descends from a decrepit longhouse on the shores of a dark lake where the self-inflicted wounds from a windy forest of flailing, whipping branches gave birth to the white heat oddities from this their self-titled new album on Sub Pop Records. Conjoined a little over two years ago, the group has already been dishing out vinyl; recording a 10-inch EP, a full-length LP, and appearing on a 7-inch compilation not to mention a few super-limited CDRs thrown in for kicks. With 3 electric guitars, a bass guitar, and a drum kit they manage to emulate the decaying soundtrack of an international airport with all the trimmings; accidental runway collisions, air traffic control extremism, unauthorized handling of cargo, and bitching passengers at checkpoint screenings.

"Too freaked out for punks and too punked out for freaks, STEVE HALL stalked the nascent British Punk/DIY scene under the guise of AFFLICTED (later AFFLICTED MAN)throughout the early 80s to the interest of almost no one. Hiding in plain sight, Hall unleashed a string of 7-inches and LPs that evoked a singular and unique take on the punk sneer made fashionable by the Sex Pistols and their minion. Primitively blending elements of psychedelia and dub over his feral, chainsaw approach, Afflicted Man unleashed a miasma of tripped out, fuzzy aggro thrashers that would eventually climax into a masterpiece of pedal stomping carnage-the unimpeachable Get Stoned Ezy LP-the likes of which are only now being fully digested. Easily one of the UKs strangest and ignored DIY punk bands. This collection includes the entire output; all three mega rare 7-inches plus the hard to find LPs The Afflicted Mans Musical Bag, Im Off Me Head, and the aforementioned Get Stoned Ezy.

"At first, Agencement was started as an anonymous tape music project in 1985. It started from an indie movement that had occurred in inverse proportion to the calm situation of Japans mid-80s domestic improvised music scene. As for activity of violin performances that I started from the influence of European improvised music after it is related to the edit of underground music magazine named Avant-Garde that Kanazawa University students issued from 1976 until 1979, several years have passed from beginning. I played the violin in various places at that time, for instance, I have participated at the 2nd Ten Minutes Solo Improvisation Festival (1982) at Kyoto Seika University, and I sometimes performed violin + live electronics solo at Merzbau cafe, etc. I was gradually editing them with multi-track though the magnetic tapes that recorded live performances. Such a work style originates from the drawing works which I started producing when I was a teen. The work of my 1st LP was made by using a cheap analog multi-track tape recorder and took 1 year. The flow of such time has not basically changed in the studio work of me digitalized now too. In 1986, I was able to come in contact with artists such as Merzbow, Toukaseibunshi, 10T and others through compilation cassette releases, etc. Masami Akita who had contact for several years recommended it though I did not think that I make LP of myself at first." --Hideaki Shimada Hideaki Shimada was born in 1962 in Kanazawa and began work with violin solo improvisation in 1980. He started tape music project Agencement in 1985, where he creates multi-layered violin improvisation and records them on magnetic tape. He has performed live in the noise music scene since the early 90s. In 2000-2003, he collaborated with Kiyoharu Kuwayama (Lethe) and Kiyoshi Mizutani in "Lethe Voice Festival" in Nagoya. In recent years he has improvised with Katsuyoshi Kou, Mori-shige, and also a sound event curated by Toshi Ichiyanagi in 2009. Housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve with artwork by the artist.

"...dont imagine any rigid structure. Fixed points are constantly forced into motion, and the provision of any explicit three dimensional model is avoided entirely. Again we are shown that the priority of music is that it represents a structure that cannot be reduced to the visual or linguistic." - 1991 review in Bijutsu Techo art magazine

"Hideaki Shimada who started making art and improvised violin experiments in the late 1970s in Kanazawa. As a continuation of some of these ideas, he started adding tapes, which led to the creation of the Agencement electronic project in 1985. Two LPs were released under that name, then his first CD "Viosphere" in 1991. Art into Life is now reissuing this album, plus three previously unissued tracks from the same period, under the title "Viosphere +". Of particular interest is the previously unreleased 1988 studio session with Hironari Iwata - from Toukaseibunshi from the same 80s experimental scene. Its a heavily avant-garde performance for guitar, amplifier and autoharp.

Comes in a box with a 12 page booklet of performance photographs from the period and several 2011 visual works. Limited edition of 200." - Art Into Life"

No laptops and backing tapes or such things are used. All is done in real time with analogue synths, rhythm boxes and tape loops... in the studio and live on stage...

"After the debut album was finished and released one of the members had to leave for the USA for about one and a half year. During this time the band continued to write songs and played numerous live shows, with their studio technician (now a full time member of the band) filling the spot. Also in this period the band attracted another band member to perform live bass guitar on stage. Together they worked on a new album which was finished after the lost member was back from the USA. This record is Irish Recording Tape. On this record the band has been perfecting their sound and song writing skills. Maybe the songs have been become more accessible in a way, but they still show the typical style of Agent Side Grinder: drilling industrial sounds which may be reminiscent at times of Swans, hypnotic synth sequences that refer to krautrock and psychedelic music and post-punk influenced bass lines which will give you flashbacks to Joy Division." - Enfant Terrible.

"We do not exagerate when we say that this record by Swedish band Agent Side Grinder has been awaited for. The response to their debut single, and their contribution to the "Hoera! Een Hex voor thuis!" compilation LP, has been overwhelmingly positive. There has been written and said that a full lenght album is eagerly awaited. Enfant Terrible is very happy to pressent this debut album. The band plays real industrial music in the style of Cabaret Voltaire, mix it with some proto-punk in the Suicide way, fuse this with the energy of early EBM reminiscent of The Klinik and top this with psychedelic touches that can be traced back to The Doors. The result is an unique, contemporary and fresh sound that will appeal to fans of industrial, elektro, old style EBM and krautrock alike. Also Agent Side Grinde has already proven to be a great live band, with only analogue equipement on stage." - Enfant Terrible

"Limited to approx. 500 copies. Back and forth across the ocean... The true experimental side of Agent Side Grinder is shown in The Transatlantic Tape Project. This project started as a way to keep working together while one of the members was in the USA. Sounds and music where put to tape and send over the Atlantic Ocean and re-worked their and sent back again to Sweden. In the end this resolved into an unique album with amazing music. The Transatlantic Tape Project is a blending of 60s psychedelic music and 80s experimental industrial muzak which is molded into original contemporary ambient music. Maybe it is better to call this Electronic Chamber Music as it is much richer in texture then ambient music. Think about a soundtrack for a David Lynch film, think early Cabaret Voltaire and think elements of Velvet Underground and you can maybe get an idea of the actual sound of this record. This is still an ongoing project. Right now (October 2009) the visual part is being realized. In the near future we hope to present a special performance around this project." - Enfant Terrible.

"EDEN AHBEZ (born GEORGE ALEXANDER ABERLE; April 15, 1908-March 4, 1995) was an American songwriter and recording artist of the 1940s-1960s, whose lifestyle in California was influential on the hippie movement. He was known to friends simply as Ahbe. Ahbez composed the song "Nature Boy," which became a #1 hit for eight weeks in 1948 for Nat "King" Cole and has since become a pop and jazz standard. Living a bucolic life from at least the 1940s, he traveled in sandals and wore shoulder-length hair and beard, and white robes. He camped out below the first L in the Hollywood Signabove Los Angeles and studied Oriental mysticism. He slept outdoors with his family and ate vegetables, fruits, and nuts. He claimed to live on three dollars per week. In 1959, he began recording instrumental music, which combined his signature somber tones with exotic arrangements and "primitive rhythms". He often performed bongo, flute, and poetry gigs at beat coffeehouses in the Los Angeles area. In 1960, he recorded his only solo LP, Edens Island for Del-Fi Records. This mixed beatnik poetry with exotica arrangements. ahbez promoted the album through a coast-to-coast walking tour making personal appearances, but it sold poorly. This wonderful piece of unique music is now available again with a silk-screen hand printed new cover. The record has been remastered. The fine "Surf Rider," an additional song from the original record session has been added to the B-side." - Moi JConnais.

This pair interweaves elements of punk rock, jazz, classical music, speed metal, grindcore, progressive rock, noise, folk musics from Asia and North Africa, electronic music, and ambient aesthetics, along with volatile, unpredictable improvisation, flowing organically in a virtual world of their own. With a devoted international cult following, Ahleuchatistas is considered by many to be one of the most innovative and ever-developing instrumental groups of the past decade.

And all we have are the recordings, scattered notes to prove that he once existed and felt it all as deeply and miraculously as any of us. And right now, from where Im calling from, I wouldnt ask for anything more. Ahmeds original voice is a welcome addition to an oversaturated aural world. He has gone on to put out numerous self-released CD-Rs as well as a new CD/LP on Time-Lag. But in the beginning there were these.

Over a year in the making, Goner sees Ahmed telescoping his previous acoustic wanderings into fuzzed out rockers and a hypnotic set of beautifully tight knit nocturnes. The whole things kicks off with a massive rush to the head called "Earn Your Blood," which has Ilyas effortlessly channeling any number of stoned out trajectories found in a Topanga Canyon ditch circa mid 70s. Massive waves of hiss still penetrate the mix, and so do the smeared vocal trails, its just that its all a little more in focus this time around. The comedown into "Exit Twilight" with GROUPER at the helm is a haunting broadcast that will for sure knock around in your skull for days.

"Second album from Hainos covers unit, who specialize in pulling apart hoary old Japanese MOR classics and rebuilding them into single-minded masterpieces of grunting/floating garage-psychedelia. The groups debut album appeared a couple of years back on the Japanese major label Tokuma, and was doubtless missed out upon by billions still bemused by that labels mischievous foreign distribution policies. Since their inception though, Aihiyo have played out around Japan roughly once a month, and this release is a document of some of those marathon, thrilling shows. Possibly the last document too, as Takahashi has since left the drum seat in favor of smoking his pipe in a rural setting, and bassist Kawaguchi (of Tokyos finest garage-Fushitshusha hybrid Broomdusters) is talking about taking a sabbatical. Anyway, this new release features nine long tracks, including covers of a Spiders tune, the Ronettes Be My Baby, and lots more you wont know. Most staggering of all is the cover of the Stones Satisfaction, which neatly transforms Jaggers baby-in-a-Perspex-box mixture of rage and boredom into truly on-the-edge jumpy paranoia, encapsulating the songs mental entirety without replicating the riff, rhythm, faux-Americanisms or any other elements of its external whatsit.

Price: $28.00
Intense double CD from this avant-garde underground icon from Finland, who recorded solo and with groups like The Sperm (who released one legendary freak out LP, Shh! in 1970), Gandhi-Freud, Ajraxin. Disc one features tracks from 1968-2002. Disc 2 is all new previoulsy unreleased remixes from: Nurse With Wound, Simon Wickham-Smith, Es, Mira Calix, Curd Duca, Anton Nikkila etc. If you were impressed by the Love Records compilation Arktinen Hysteria , this is the next step. "The music of Petta Airaksinen (b. 1945) has been far ahead of its time for most of his 40 year long career. His finest recordings from the 60s are more reminiscent of industrial music and noise (which would emerge ten years later) than of the music of his precursors and contemporaries. In the early 80s few people, if any, were mixing mechanic beats and free jazz like he did -- favourable conditions for this kind of music didnt really exist until the turn of the century. His latest genre-hopping work will also probably take a long time to become fully appreciated. This compilation is a fairly subjective selection of his works from each of these periods. The selection of remixes commissioned for the second disc of the compilation aims to find a contemporary context for his work and to expand connections, some of which already existed. For example Nurse With Wound namechecked Airaksinen on their famous list of influences that came with their debut LP Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella (1979), while Finlands Es played together with Airaksinen in his first live performance since 1987 at Avanto Helsinki Media Art Festival in 2001." - Love.

"Pekka Airaksinen started making music in the late 1960s with the group the Sperm, combining performance art with experimental music of the day. With influences such as John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen, the Sperm combined free jazz and psychedelic pop to create a sound resembling early industrial music and noise. After the Sperms breakup in the 70s, Pekka Airaksinen became a Buddhist and would stop releasing music for almost a decade. Airaksinen, who was regarded as a recluse, returned to the public eye in the mid-80s under his own name and with a brand new but equally futuristic vision. His album Buddhas of Golden Light is an incredible mixture of Sun Ras cosmic free jazz and twisted rhythms programmed on a Roland 808 drum machine. At the end of the decade techno elevated the 808 to a fetish object and Airaksinen disappeared for another five years. In the 90s Airaksinen released a large number of CDs and CD-Rs on his own Dharmakustannus label, on which the style of each track varied wildly - breaking every rule of the niche-group marketing concepts of the era. All his recordings, whether they are his unique interpretations of contemporary music, new age, ambient house or jazz, are characterized by a sense of improvisation and casual roughness that is rare in electronic music. The most avant-garde pieces of his recent output continue his earlier work with the imaginary anthropoid music of the future. One Point Music is his shining moment. Originally pressed in an edition of 120, this reissue has been needed for a long time." - Mutant Sounds.

"Reissue of this scarce LAFMS title in digipack, limited to 500 copies. This album was originally recorded and released as an LP in 1978; Airway was a group featuring Joe Potts, Chip Chapman, Rick Potts, Dennis Duck, Juan Gomez and Tom Recchion. Live At Lacewas later included in the Cortical Foundation/RRR 10CD LAFMS box from 1995, but this version has been remastered, using the original tapes for the LP. It is considered to exhibit a "pretty different feeling of sound" and features unique artwork that was only used on Japanese-export copies of the LP when it was first released." - FE. Crucial early-noise document from the Los Angeles Free Music Society heyday. "AIRWAY is a brainchild of Joe Potts. Here are COMMANDMENTS OF AIRWAY: AIRWAY is a hole through which our conscious passes. Sound of AIRWAY is not an object. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed location. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed location. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed meaning. Sound of AIRWAY has no dimensions. Meaning and dimensions of AIRWAY sound constantly change in relation to the universe inside and outside listeners. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed time. The "flow of time" in AIRWAY sound is psychological not physical. Sound of AIRWAY is a representation of the whole of sound existing inside and outside us. Because all sound of AIRWAY is interrelated, there is no such thing as innovative sound at AIRWAY performance. Sound of AIRWAY is an unfolded manifestation of hidden (enfolded) universe, consisting of all sound which will ever exist and has ever consisted inside and outside us."

"A faithful reproduction of the 1978 ⿿Live at LACE⿝ cassette single made by Joe Potts in an edition of 20. The 2009 edition cassettes were made exclusively for sale during the Airway performance at ⿿A Fantastic World Superimposed on Reality: A Select History of Experimental Music⿝, the 2 day Noise Fest curated by Mike Kelley for the Performa 2009 biennial that took place Nov. 20 and 21, 2009 at the Gramercy Theater in NYC. This edition of 200 features sonically enhanced sound and restored artwork, down to the color Xerox labels and ⿿informative⿝ insert expertly recreated by Tom Recchion. Please note this is only a SIX minute cassette! The original concept for the cassette was fueled by Potts discovery at a thrift shop of a tranche of cheap, short, pre-recorded childrens cassettes. Joe then would take a cassette and record a section of the ⿿Live at LACE⿝ LP by randomly dropping the turntables needle on different parts of the record and recording that section for three minutes per cassette side. He originally intended to produce 100 cassettes, but after realizing how much work would be needed to accomplish this, he stopped at 20, making the original cassette one of the most sought-after collectibles in the LAFMS catalog.

Title: Do What You Like
Format: LP
Label: Granadilla Music
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
"Reissued for the first time. AKA might have been one of the top acts of the Indonesian rock scene in the late 60s and early 70s. It does not necessarily mean that any international audience for heavy rock and psychedelic sounds would have noticed that back then, but we change that now. Do What You Like is a colorful album with a diversity of moods. Of course you find hard-driving, wild, grooving rock with simmering guitars and pumping rhythms. Go to the next song and some gentle, nearly ethereal dreamy psych-pop will alter your mind. Another step ahead on the tracklist and some easy and melodic 60s beat makes you want to dance the night away. The special factor of this album is the musical flavor of Indonesian pop that all of the songs sung in their native tongue show, while the few English tracks can compete against all of the popular hits from those days from American or European acts. AKA know how to heat you up with their psychedelic sound explosions and eruptive beats. They also know how to calm you down again and lay your soul to rest in a flow of gentle harmonies. Fans of 60s power pop with a regional feel presented by bands such as Omega from Hungary and of the 60s U.S. West Coast psych and pop scene will go crazy about this record." - Granadilla Music.

"First anthology from Indonesias heaviest psychedelic and progressive funk rock group. AKA featured on Now Agains Those Shocking Shaking Days compilation (2011). Originating from Indonesias second largest city, Surabaya, East Java, AKA is an acronym of Apotik Kali Asin. Starting off their careers as an infamous local band with notorious crowd pleasing antics, AKA regularly went through repertoires of Steppenwolf, Grand Funk Railroad, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Three Dog Night before finding a significant audience outside their home city. It was soon after that the band signed with a Jakarta based label, Indra Records that they started producing a steady release of albums, including 11 studio LPs and a couple of compilations. The lead singer Ucok Harahap - who famously idolizes James Brown- is perhaps the most notorious rock performer in Indonesias pop history, infamous for brandishing (amongst others) coffins, whips and stripping naked on stage during performances. Sadly due to recording English based, heavy psychedelic/progressive funk, AKAs music failed to gain popularity at the time of its release. Today, AKA is recognized as one of Indonesias top rock bands of all time, and for good reason. With this release, we are proud to offer an Anthology encompassing AKAs heaviest & funkiest moments."- Strawberry Rain.

Title: Uganda: Afurikan Rokku no Yoake (Dawn Of African Rock)
Format: CD
Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $31.00
"The start of a new series focusing on lost and obscure sonic treasures birthed out of the underbelly of Japans New Rock revolution during the period 1969-1978 is spearheaded by the long announced reissue of one of the rarest discs to seep out of that seedy, incestuous scene. Ishikawa Akira & Count Buffalos Uganda: Afurikan Rokku no Yoake originally saw the light of day on February 5th, 1972 on Toshiba Records as part of their 4 Channel Q.M. Sound series but quickly sank into the depths obscurity, making that only a handful of copies were actually sold while the remaining stock was withdrawn due to very depressing sales and eventually melted down and destroyed. The disc remained a well kept secret for all these years and only a small circle of die-hard music lovers have ever seen an actual original copy, making it these days one of the most treasured and hunted down Japanese rock artifacts. A couple of years ago a bootleg LP edition of the LP came out, sadly sounding quite mediocre but nevertheless rejuvenating a new awareness for the album. Still, rumors as to who were the actual performers on the album floated around freely since the group was simply listed as Count Buffalo with no detailed breakdown of who actually played on the album, and as a result, there has been much fevered speculation over the years. Therefore, Tiliqua Records thought it wise to release this sonic gem properly -- they hunted down the license, unraveled the legal entanglements, acquired access to the original mastertapes and subsequently also took on the quest to track down the actual players involved. So now, with this fully-authorized reissue, we can finally reveal the full line-up or the key players involved and add some insight into the records background, thanks to the kind participation of Ugandas composer, Mr. Muraoka Takeru. Musically speaking, Ishikawa Akira & Count Buffalos Uganda - Afurikan Rokku no Yoake is a vicious psychedelic whirlwind monster of a disc where primitive Afro-spiritual and tribal ethnic percussive blow-outs cross-pollinate with lysergic New Rock fuzz-a-delic dementia, stirring up enough dust and boulders like two-barreled guns coming out of the demon hole. Still, Uganda is more than just that, and although it is deceptively intense, it is simultaneously casual in feel yet meticulous in its musical detail and lyrical economy. And seen in retrospect, I can now proclaim that this album stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best records of that golden era, and it was one of Japans 1970s underground scenes defining moments. In short. it is a totally lethal slide that does not fail to create an arresting listening experience. As is the case with all of Tiliqua Records releases, this one is also crafted out with meticulous care and eye for detail. The CD comes housed in a miniature version of the actual slim-cased LP box set, complete with obi and extensive 8-paged Japanese/ English liner notes, illustrated with some archival footage. One-time only, very limited press, housed in a sturdy hard card mini-LP styled slim box set-styled gatefold jacket. Digitally remastered from the original master tapes and graced with faithfully reproduced artwork (although slightly adapted for the single CD box set version) and obi. One-time limited press due to the nature of the box set jacket." - Tiliqua.

"Tetuzi Akiyama is frequently associated with the insurgent improvising community in Tokyo generated around guitarist Taku Sugimoto but to be sure his sound owes as much to a unique strain of country blues engulfed in negative space. His loosely strewn playing skirts the usual clichés of the guitar in both the free improv and trad folk scenes. Pre-Existence is a puzzling and often achingly beautiful slurred guitar meditation. Sit back & let your ears bear witness to a Zen blues of the most elemental, meditative form. This disc marks Akiyamas solo contribution to Locusts celebrated Wooden Guitar series." - Locust.

"Tetuzi Akiyama has been a major player on the free music/improv scene in Tokyo for going on 20 years. Pre-Existence first came out on CD as a part of the great Wooden Guitar series from Locust. Akiyamas playing here is one of a minimalist approach, discovering and investigating the empty spaces between each note. He does not follow the Takoma guitar school style of finger-picking, but a far more warped primitive country blues feel, with a meditative quality. You never know where you are going to be led with his guitar, down roads rarely travelled. With his dense tapestry of sounds, Akiyama evokes emotions that at times are uncomfortable, but of real beauty. Open your ears and let the music take you far far out there..." - Bo Weavil.

"Tetuzi Akiyama: guitar, electronics, viola, and self-made instrument player. Born in Tokyo, April 13, 1964. Tetuzi Akiyama is a highly unique and experimental guitarist heavily applying free improvisation and noise. Besides guitar, he also plays electronics, viola, and self-made instruments. Akiyama became an enthusiastic hard rock fan when he was 11 years-old, and started playing electric guitar at the age of 13. Later, he also came to be very interested in free improvisation and classical music. Tom Carter: born barely south of the Mason-Dixon line, and just in time for the Summer of Love, Tom Carter led a decidedly non-hippy existence being shuffled around various farm and mining towns in Maryland and Ohio by his newspaperman father, before finally making his way to Texas in 1985, just in time to watch all the good hardcore bands die. Already obsessed with American pre-punk and British post-punk, Carter dove into the lysergically spiked musical waters of Texas with both feet, augmenting rudimentary guitar skills with unreliable instruments, cranky analog electronics, and disintegrating practice amps. Over the ensuing decades, he managed to forge his evolving ideas of complete tonal immersion (and the quest for the perfect fuzz tone) into a layered sonic toolkit of rough beauty and unrefined proficiency. Best known for his work with acclaimed iconoclasts Charalambides, which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991. Christian Kiefer: began his life in the arts through a fascination with the written word. This fascination is reflected in a long line of publications. His poetry and fiction have appeared in many of Americas most prestigious literary journals. He is the author of three novels, the most recent of which is Out of Iron." - Monotype

Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Machine Gun Nest: Cassette Works Vol. 0 is a massively crucial vinyl dispatch from the no-mans-land between noise and techno, penned by Kris Lapke aka Alberich. Scoping rare and out-of-print highlights from his extensive cache for co-conspirators Hospital Productions over the last six years, it embodies a shell-shocked and embattled spirit in eight parts ranging from water-boarded ambience to remorseless industrial rhythms and night-goggled darkwave projections. Since the earliest days of Hospital Productions, Kris Lapke has been integral to the labels audacious aesthetic, whether applying signature ceramic finish to their releases as go-to mastering engineer, or as a shadow member of Prurient and in black metal assault unit Ash Pool, both with Dominick "Vatican Shadow" Fernow. However, its arguably under the Alberich aegis which hes produced his most important work, a string of almost entirely cassette-only releases united by themes of military might, depraved distortion and cathartic despair. In a bloodied field where noise is worn like armor, Alberich has developed an almost impenetrable, aggressive defense mechanism to shield a bitter, bruised, and occasionally vulnerable soul. Its employed to invasive, visceral effect in his most brutal pieces such as the rollicking "Rumbala" and "Panerai," and tempered to make sure your wounds wont heal after the industrial battery of "Open Warfare" or the bone-splitting "Image of Progress," but its most affective when combined with bilious, scowling darkwave synth atmospheres in the shocking vista of "Gold" or the crushing pathos of "Virgins." Yet, if theres any one track that sums up the feeling of desolation, attrition and decay most vividly, its "No Mistake," where the abrasive exoskeleton is shed to reveal genuinely heart-in-mouth chords and glazed-eye pads which leave us an emotional mush every time."

Originally deployed in 2010, its bombed-out luster has become a firm favorite of everyone from Blackest Ever Blacks Kiran Sande to Endangered Species Vereker. Between the bludgeoned doom techno of "Skysweeper," the shell-strewn darkwave scenes of "Man Is Ready" and the Carpenter-esque adrenalizer, "Immortality Is No Consolation for Death," Alberich finds a very specific line through heavy electronics, synth zones, and dread techno, and holds it to the last with a shell-shocked, eviscerated aesthetic most unlike any other.

"Were obviously not the only ones whove been anxiously awaiting a third record from Albright.

Hes still on drugs and hes still happy hes a genius (and so are we), but hes not singing about any of that on this record. This Sacto punk has brutalized us twice before, but never quite like this. The third times definitely a charm and even though Charles is no longer a loner he is still absolutely in charge on this one. Weight finds Mr. A drumless for the first time ever, but the repetitive riff-tensity hides the lack of percussion pretty damn well on this wham‐bam-thank-you-maam punker. For the B-side, Charles mustve taken a ride on the Silver Machine, but hes obviously still feeling mean, cuz the riff behind I Am The Counter Culture (Drop Out) sounds quite a bit like a certain Hawkwind jam we all know and love. But this aint no cover song, (Drop Out) stands on its own as a killer psychedelic punk number for the ages. This incredible single is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies and precedes the sure to be mind melting debut full-length due out this Fall.

Title: And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"This is the fifth solo offering by the Houston, Texas based pedal steel sorceress, Susan Alcorn. "The Heart Sutra" opens and is inspired by the "Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Wisdom", which was delivered by Buddha 2,500 years ago. It is a beautiful, yet solemn work that reverbates from within as Susan strums those magical strings. The title track, "And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar", was inspired by Messiaens "Et Expecto Ressurectionum Mortuorum". It is a near 16-minute epic of stirring, haunting sounds. Each note is stretched out and floats like a spirit on the wind in a graveyard. Ms. Alcorns approach to the pedal steel guitar is completely unique and she doesnt quite sound like anyone else. If one is patient enough, they will realize that she makes every note and space count. "The Glass is Already Broken" is another piece in which each melodic fragment is touching, somber and well-selected, yet it drifts into a more sinister area. "The First Turning of the Wheel" was inspired, oddly enough, by the late Bob Graettinger, composer & arranger for Stan Kentons classic album, "This Modern World/City of Glass". I am not quite sure how this music is related to Kentons modern big band work, but again I was moved by the solemn spaciousness. For "The Second Turning of the Wheel", the notes are again softly stretched out and immensely eerie. On "Three Minute Warning", Susan lets each sound swirl and be bathed in a haze or a ghost-like echo." - Bruce G. (Downtown Music Gallery)

"1995 reissue of this Silence album, originally issued in 1972. Älgarnas Trädgårds name translates as "Garden of the Elks" and this debut album has always stood as one of the pinnacles of underground psychedelic rock -- comparable to early Pink Floyd, Group 1850 and other world masters of space-out genius. The title translates as The Future is a Hovering Ship Anchored in the Past. The group employed an instrumental array made of: violins, rebec, cello, guitars, sitar, piano, zither, organ flutes, zinks, jews harps, tablas, percussion, Moog-synthesizer & VC-3 Putney-synthesizer. Recorded at Studio Decibel in 1971, this CD reissue adds two bonus live tracks from 1972. From Dan Söderqvists notes: "We have known each other since 1968, when we met in our home neighborhood Västra Frölunda, Gothenburg. We listened to everything; Perotinus heavenly choirs from the 13th century, Messiens heavy works for orchestra, Beefhearts Safe as Milk, with its surreal lyrics, King Crimsons endless string of chords, the beautiful acoustic Third Ear Band, Terry Rileys minimalism and above all the psychedelic music of early Pink Floyd. Sometimes we played our dägga-däng-music, crazy rhythmical plays with acoustic guitars and hysterical giggles. Sometimes we just sat and listened to the sounds slowly disappearing into space ... We experimented with getting strange sounds out of our instruments, started to use amplifiers and played with echoes ... We constantly expanded our possibilities to get new sounds, with organs, mouth harps and pedals ... We got our hands on the first Moog module system that just about had reached Sweden. We mixed Middle Age instruments such as zinks and rebecs, sound effects, church bells, fragments of both Bach and The Beatles and improvised our way through the first album." -Silence

Artist: ALGEBRA SUICIDE
Title: Feminine Squared
Format: LP + DVD
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Algebra Suicide was the married couple Lydia Tomkiw (lyrics/vocals) and Don Hedeker (guitars/keyboards). They formed in Chicago in 1982, and their first four song EP, True Romance At The Worlds Fair, was self-released that year. It featured a 60s Vox Guitar Organ, a precursor to the synthesizer guitar, and a Multivox Rhythm Ace drum machine. In 1984 they released a second 4 song EP, An Explanation For That Flock Of Crows, ditching the guitar organ but adding the Casiotone MT-40. The Big Skin cassette was released in 1986 and featured 13 new compositions with more complex arrangements. A compilation album, The Secret Like Crazy, was released in 1988. Feminine Squared is an 18 track compilation that collects all 8 songs from the first two EPs, 4 songs from the Big Skin cassette, 4 songs from The Secret Like Crazy, a song from the Pas De Deux compilation, and a previously unreleased song. Lydia and Don call their approach "Avant Garage" citing inspiration from Patti Smith, Frank OHara, Leonard Cohen and Lou Reed. Don plays guitar in a hauntingly stark style like Glenn Branca, Tom Verlaine, or Vini Reilly. He then adds Casio keyboards and minimal electronic percussion, creating a moody, atmospheric backdrop for Lydias poems. Lydias words span a broad range of twisted real-life observations, and are delivered in a deadpan fashion with her distinct Midwestern accent. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy black and white jacket featuring the cut up faces of Don and Lydia from An Explanation For That Flock Of Crows EP. Each LP includes a newsprint zine with lyrics, photos, liner notes, and clippings. Also included is a full length DVD featuring a 12-song Algebra Suicide concert from 1984, recorded at the Noise Factory in Chicago. Though Lydia passed away in 2007, her genius lives on in these recordings. Please respect her decadence." - Dark Entries

"Avant-garde jazz drummer Rashied Ali played with John Coltrane up until his death in 1967, appearing on final recordings like The Olatunji Concert and Interstellar Space. After Coltranes death, Ali soon formed his own quartet, with Fred Simmons on piano, Stafford James on bass violin and Carlos Ward on alto sax and flute. The quartets first release, New Directions In Modern Music, released on Alis own Survival Records in 1973, exploded onto the free jazz scene, influencing the likes of Don Cherry, Albert Ayler and Archie Shepp (as well as many outside the jazz idiom), becoming a kind of manifesto for avant-garde music of the period. From this point, until his death in 2009, Ali was at the heart of the New York experimental music scene, collaborating in the mid-nineties on a project called Purple Trap, with Japanese guitarist Keiji Haino and Bill Laswell." - Klimt.

"Sui Generis: Not only the amazing duo from Argentina & "INFINITE JEST" but surely what we are ALL in the sound game for. Anyone with two east/west northern holes above your bone box nugg is on constant HUNT for THAT jam that has no pre/no post: A creeping isolated "sound being" adrift in a fontad  sea in a lost forgotten world . Too rare a task in this 20th Century Schizo reference recycled derivative genre-based underground? Hell yes- But they are around and well well look here: In your greasy mitts is a stone cold MONSTER of Sui Generis frightening proportions. The mysterious & elusive ALIEN CITY LP. Info on is nearly nonexistent - Seattle, "Dog Star" label- rumors of tapes: mental institutions: thats about it: But the year 79 adds some hints: froward Glam-ish moves, eeerr... "basement" prog- a smart arty trench coat/lip stick cosmic vibe: its all there but its the overall "sheen" is mixed with some of the sharpest hooks known to the no-budget private record outsider dreamer-type. A dateless cousin to the equally weird STRANGE "Souvenir Album" lp from around the same time/state?? Ever made a Kinkos (whoops FED EX) run @ midnight and theres a total loner weirdo copying homemade gnostic symbols in a unholy ferver? Heres his LP: warts and all. "Alien City" nearly has a "Killing With Capitalism With Kindness" sense of song writing: water brain logged obsessive / anxious short vignettes stringed together to paint a picture of the mouths & neon green-gray blood pumping hearts via the "Olden Men." The Lp coms from a universe filled with busy rambling minds in cheap downtown makeup  worried about how to "Keep Your Cool." Hard to really pinpoint where this beast crawled from: but it is as addictive as mainlining a Charleston Chew and will stick to your soul with equal chewing elastic permanence. The flow on side two "When Everything Is All Wrong" is about as perf as homemade noncommercial catchy brilliance on a  $4 billingsgate budget progressive brilliance can get / this side of Yezda Urfa. Take away your notions of "psych" and "fuzz explosions and "ego psych" as this is more like seeing a theatre play by a Todd Rungren obsessed zoner-loner on Halloween with nothing but mannequin heads as the audience. If you find the current crop of Aussie songsmith smart punx youth trying to write the next "Point That Thing Somewhere Else" as dull as the noise cassette your dentist told you to czech out: Bury yourself DEEP inside this claustrophobic world and just SEE the effect it will seep into the seams of your life. The maze Alien City will draw you into Borges style will be one tuff exit, but full of all sorts of outerworldy treasures filled with intimate shaky inexplainable wonders: AND at the the very least the Minotaur inside is a skinny glasses-type that could end up being more annoying than flesh-eating. SHOULD have liner notes by "The Killing" series and the previously mentioned David Foster Wallace... Forget the jingoism & not trying to exhort any player but :this is The STRANGEST date-night LP of 2014. MASTERPIECE THEATRE INDEED."

Title: Ghost Ship Rodez
Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"In Ghost Ship Rodez Terry Allen pursues a fictional investigation of what may have happened in the mind of French artist, playwright and actor Antonin Artaud during a 17-day journey restrained in the dark hold of the freighter Washington in 1937, and later, in various mental institutions. While living in France, Artaud had obtained a walking stick that he considered was the staff of Jesus Christ handed down to St. George. In 1937, Artaud journeyed to Ireland to return the staff to its country of origin. However, while there, he experienced a series of extreme mental and emotional crises that culminated in a violent altercation with Dublin police. Artaud’s subsequent deportation to France was a grueling journey, which he spent straitjacketed and chained to a metal cot in the bowels of the ship. The live theater piece from which this radio play was adapted, was originally commissioned by and developed at Les Subsistance Artist Atellier Laboratories, Lyon, France and performed there as a work-in- progress, June 2006, at Festival Les Intranquilles. It was further developed and performed at MassMoca, North Adams, MA, Feb. 2008.

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Medical Records presents a reissue of one of Germanys most interesting records. The German duo Aloa only made one album in 1982, but it is one of the most peculiar and innovative records of the Neue Deutsche Welle movement. Long out of print, somewhat obscure, and very expensive, this record is due for an official reissue. The duo consisting of Al Kanz and Matthias Brendel both grew up in Kassel, Germany. Though both had different tastes of music, they fused influences and injected them into their own unique blend when they purchased Roland 606 and 808 drum machines plus a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. After much development and evolution, the Aloa project came to life. The album explores a whole spectrum of textures, moods, and atmospheres. Ranging from dark complex synthed-out tracks to diverse instrumentation-laced almost Krautrock motifs, this album is definitely one of a kind. From the commanding first track Weisser Wal with its almost Bryan Ferry style vocals to the atmospheric Banane Zitrone, the twists and turns are endless. This is a very sultry record as well evidenced by the bands constant obsession with sexy women who occupied their time. Definitely will appeal to fans of The Residents, Neue Deutsche Welle, and anything and everything that lives in the outer reaches of synth territory. Sadly the record was overlooked and misunderstood by the press and radio stations alike likely due to its obvious unorthodox and experimental interpretation of synthpop. Restored and mastered from the original master tapes by Klearlight Studios in Dallas, TX. Presented on high-quality 180 gram heavyweight green vinyl. Features bonus LP insert with liner notes and interview by Dave Segal. Limited edition." - Medical.

Country: Canada
Price: $10.00
"Featuring Projekt STINKA (Hana Lundiaková, Czech Republic) and Alpha Strategy (Rory Hinchey, Canada), the Muck EP split offers singular, off-kilter pop from the new projects of these two varied artists. Hana Lundiakovás graceful accordion playing and deep, unrestrained vocals in her native Czech provide the foundations for a perfectly realized pair of folk-inspired, yet pop-flavored songs. Having busied herself for over 10 years playing accordion in diverse Czech punk outfits such as Redbeard, Tři sestry, and Treněr Norủ, along with keyboards in experimental group Kaspar von Urbach, STINKA is Lundiakovás first project under her own direction. Here, she is joined by Martin Černý (Redbeard) who lends his production talents, bass and guitar work, all with a definite Morricone-esque flair. Author of the critically acclaimed experimental prose collection Vrhnout (2010), journalist, editor, mother, and visual artist, Hana Lundiaková continues forward with a chaotic production schedule. Current activities include a forthcoming body of her erotic literature, an illustrated childrens book, and further live performances in the Czech Republic and abroad. Utilizing a combination of primitive oscillating circuits, vintage synthesizers, shouted vocals, and loops lifted from 1960s schlager, Alpha Strategy delivers music which is volatile and convulsive, yet meticulously arranged.." -Ownness.

"The second Fanal album is released, and as you might know, the man behind is Kai Althoff. It features some extraordinary, almost brutally nasty pieces about eviction and deportation as well as a song about the instructions of a sexually obsessed man. There are almost always vocals, and none of them are nice or pleasing. One of the songs now is SO German, so dont fool about it now and listen, follow the example: "He is not stupid, the German." The music is guitar, bass, synthesizer, drum computer and vocals, as already mentioned. To me it seems to be rather a vehicle to emphasise the words. The rhythm is always faster, apart from the track "Mit Den Hunden" (with the dogs). And finally Fanal poses the question: What does it mean to have a mother? Ones values are dismantled, taken apart and replaced by aggression... its Fanal again, heralding a fight by physical as well as mental means. For some this music is only distinguished by its nastiness, but theyll find that all they can hope for is an hour of gentle reckoning..." - K.Althoff. "The second Fanal album appropriates styles from across Colognes heritage of alternative music, from Krautrock to some of the more contemporary techno and electro-acoustic productions. Offering German lyrics that are fiercely brutal and coarse, Fanal II provides accounts of issues such as sexual obsession, eviction, deportation and even the occult.... Each of the eleven tracks emphasizes the impossibility of any coherent narrative for the types of persona that Althoff adopts, tending towards more corporeal, pre-verbal evocations." - Frieze magazine.

Baroque Primitiva is the first long-format telegram from Alvarius B. since he lost his mothership (the Sun City Girls, with whom he employed his slave name, Alan Bishop) and it also feels like his most consistently non-acerbic -- perhaps even most beauty-oriented -- work. The songs often have a meditative pace and are filled with gorgeous lo-fi blends of vocals, guitar, bass and keys. Eyvind Kang guests on several tracks, but the bulk of the material was broadcast direct from the naked soul of Alvarius B., which turns out to be a warmer, sweeter place than you might imagine. The record also marks the return of the equally-legendary Poon Village label, whose 1993 Sun City Girls LP, Live At C.O.N. Artists, is a rare and lovely piece of that bands sonic puzzle. Poon Villages productions are always extraordinary in visual terms, and Baroque Primitiva is no exception. The covers meditative human mandala is a brilliant ocular ode to shifting visions of feminine pulchritude, and is worthy of the best framing job you can afford." -Byron Coley "Screenprinted jackets feature a double gate, hand-cut spines, and metallic photo print featuring 16 naked girls. Heavy 180 gram black vinyl pressed in the Rust Belt. Limited edition - 300 copies available for sale for the whole world." -Poon Village

Price: $18.00
"A much-needed CD issue of an LP, released this last February in microquantities. The dastardly minds behind this project, a first spurt from the reactivated Poon Village label, have collaborated on the new package as well. And it is a deluxe eye-swim through various forms of feminine beauty, its 32-page booklet displaying images that look as though they were found in a smoky catacomb carved into the hills of Charlestown. By my count, Baroque Primitiva is the sixth album by Alvarius B. and is, like its predecessors, a deep dive through mysterious waters. The 11 tracks here were recorded at various sessions over the course of several years and range from Humor Police (a track imagining what Syd Barrett might have sounded like had he been a devotee of Rembetika) to a trippily Beatles-damaged version of You Only Live Twice (the sole surviving shard of the aborted Alvarius B.

Eyvind Kang guests on several tracks, but the bulk of the material was broadcast direct from the naked soul of Alvarius B., which turns out to be a warmer, sweeter place than you might imagine. And while this CD will be available for a tad longer than the 30 seconds the LP lasted, a set as thoroughly gorgeous as this will not linger. Take a deep breath of its magic and go for it.

"The album title pretty much says it all. Yes we know thats the same thing we said about last years Alvarius B. (Alan Bishop) archival release Fuck You and the Horse You Rode In On LP, but while What One Man Can Do... has a similar approach in attitude, it comes a decade later as solo acoustic guitar instrumentals recorded during the 1990s. Perhaps, if its contextualization you are seeking, you could consider this a continuation of the first Alvarius B. album (ABDT 004CD -- acoustic guitar instrumentals recorded during the 1980s). Or, you could simply imagine that these are songs about strangling people like you with a low E steel guitar string. This (recorded straight to cassette) acoustic guitar sound has more of a resemblance to a performance on power tools than it does to strumming or picking a Martin flat top. So if youve been leisurely waking up on Sunday mornings to sit down, have a cup of tea in your non-smoking kitchen breakfast-nook, staring out into the garden while listening to your old Fahey records, step aside and let someone else own this piece of wax -- someone who may take the body of an old fucked-up guitar and start pounding people like you into the pavement with it.

Title: Sugar: The Other White Meat
Format: LP
Label: Catsup Plate
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Sugar: the Other White Meat brings together two of the central figures of underground sound-whatzit and general audio curiosities: Alvarius B (of Sun City Girls fame) and Dylan Nyoukis (one-half of the UKs Decaer Pinga/Prick Decay). Side A of the LP features each of the two in solo mode: Alvarius with five songs of varying length and Dylan with one twelve minute piece. The B side of the LP is a side-long collaborative track. Sugar was originally conceived by Harmony Korine to be a four-way split between Alvarius, Nyoukis, Will Oldham, and Absalom (Korines "White Metal" band). But Korine went MIA and Oldham hadnt heard of the project when Dylan asked him about it later. By this point, Alvarius and Dylan had already finished their respective contributions and, rather than scrap the project altogether, decided to create a collaborative piece to take up the missing second side of the LP. Dylan sent over source material, which Alvarius cut, spliced and mixed in with his own sound sources (including some drunken answering machine messages from Mr. Korine). So whats the listener to expect from this stew? Those familiar with Alvarius B will find much of his range represented in his five songs: quasi-ethnic ramblings, wordless vocal ramblings (w/the TV on in the background), Django-esque guitar runs, and the absolutely amazing and unclassifiable "DJ South Bitch," which is sort of all of the above. Dylans solo contribution continues in the vein of his Shield That Pierces the Earth album, with a simple banjo (?) underpinning that eventually gives way to subtle tape manipulation, musique concrete, and generally engaging, but head scratching sounds of all sorts. The collaborative piece runs the gamut over its 24+ minute duration: broken electronics, field recordings near a gas n sip (or some such), shortwave radio, actual songs (!), the aforementioned answering machine rant, ambient cafeteria noise, thunderstorms - you know, pretty much everything. Edition of 500 copies. Hand silkscreened sleeves with two-color silkscreened insert printed by the kind and able folks at Parallel Lines Press. Nude cover rounds out the deal." - Catsup Plate.

Price: $13.00
"This is a release of analog sound experiments from old Sweden circa 1987-2006 from electronic drone/noise masters Joachim Nordwall (ex-Kid Commando) and Jan Svensson. Alvars Orkester was formed in 1987 in Johannishus, a small village in the southeast of Sweden by a group of young boys interested in the mysteries of psychic sickness, mental institutions, the industrial music culture and the power of sound. During the first years, Alvars was very active within the independent cassette culture scene, releasing their stuff on small labels in Italy, Portugal, USA etc. AO was always very closely connected to the electronic noise and their self-run industrial label Börft Records, but their work soon drifted from the industrialism inspired by Test Dept, TG, SPK and Zev to an atmospheric, psychedelic and more ambient version of noise. In 1994, Nordwall left the label and Sweden (to return to the country forming the iDEAL Organisation) and Svensson continued by focusing on bent acid house and psychedelic dance stuff. For years, AO remained silent with a few short exceptions, but in April 2005, Nordwall and Svensson recorded the Interference album for Ash International. Colored by Svenssons increasing paranoia sickness and the tension between the two that has been there since their youth, they put down the mysteries of psychic broadcasting and manipulation on tape. Interference consists of analog drones, interspersed with hardcore electronics, hair-raising voices and spine-chilling ambience." - Ash.

Country: USA

“Formed in the late 70s, AMA-DOTS pushed the punk ethos to a decidedly irreverent, twisted and experimental sound. At times leaning into pop ("Hit Girls") and others decidedly angry and mean ("Strange Brute") Ama-dots had a way of surprising the listener without being aimless or "weird-for-weirds sake". Releasing "Hit Girls" on their own Hunky Recs in 1980 the song became a battle cry, striking a chord with female punk patrons. At this time punk and anything close to feminist empowerment had only been uttered by The Raincoats and The Slits. The major reason most listeners heard of the later is that they were based out of London and, as much as Milwaukee had a vibrant punk scene, it was not known as a musical mecca.  Striking a deal with Chicagos Autistic Records they were produced by IAIN BURGESS, regarded as instrumental in shaping the Chicago post-punk sound with Big Black, Ministry, Effigies and more. Burgess brought the dark, aggressiveness out while not limiting the quirks, kinks and perverse sense of humor. Autistic imploded and so sat their work with Burgess making the self released single highly sought after within collector circles. This is the first time their work with Burgess as well as other local notables, including the late DENNIS FLEMION (The Frogs) has been publicly available.  This limited edition is pressed on gold marbled vinyl and includes an 11" x 17" insert with rare photos and written accounts by writers, fans and critics including a first person account of a harrowing gig in Toronto.” - Rerun.

Musically, it goes in the same direction as Blo, The Witch and Question Mark, but this album is way cooler and stoned with an amazing fuzz guitar all over which sounds like an African version of early Cream. The cover makes it look very traditional but after a few spins, you are aware that this one is very special. Its so cool, so tightly-produced and easily compares with UK underground albums with a touch of African beats. Still completely unknown, so this album has not been scored yet by the collectors scene.

Title: Alps
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Dancing Wayang Records is thrilled to announce the imminent release of the labels ninth album -- Alps by Oren Ambarchi & Eli Keszler; a fresh yet seemingly inevitable collaboration of two musicians kicking against limits and genre definitions, recorded and presented with a similar disregard for anything but quality. Alps was recorded in June 2013 at Eastcote Studios in London. Thereafter mixed by frequent Ambarchi associate Joe Talia in Melbourne and mastered by Rashad Becker in Berlin, it comes pressed on 180 gram black virgin vinyl housed in the labels traditional hand-screenprinted wrap-around sleeves featuring cover art by Eli Keszler. Liner notes come courtesy of U.S. musician C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core). Two vinyl-side-long pieces that mix improv, noise, rock, and drone, this is never an easy listen but always a compelling one. Both musicians are compulsive collaborators, with individual oeuvres that span all those genres and others yet to be labeled, and this album reflects and distills their hard-working heritage. They have a similar approach to questioning the fundamentals and exploring the sonic properties of their chosen instruments in a way that is informed by musical theory and learning but manifests itself in a defiantly non-academic, visceral and physical sound, both in intent and experience. Listening to Alps is a discomforting, uneasy and massively rewarding exercise, which denies the listener any steady ground on which to stand. This is evident from the moment that "Alps I" kicks off with piercing bowed cymbals. Percussive elements emerge from deep in the mix, drums without rhythm nor meter. Background and foreground shift tectonically and queasily. A chopping helicopter pulse hovers omnipresently over the battlefield of attacking drums and splintery bass beneath. It is a liquescent, rolling, never-still 20 minutes of multiple musical narratives. From the outset side B upholds the intensity. The conflagration of "Alps II" comes off like a tribute to classic Japanese psych; guitar proudly and consistently in the red, tsunamis of drum rolls. It has a defiant crudeness and rawness to its attack, which belies the intelligence needed to create such a rough-edged sound, the deftness needed to keep the truck-driving momentum on the road. 500 copies worldwide limited edition, pressed on 180 gram vinyl." - Dancing Wayang.

"For anyone who still associates Oren Ambarchi exclusively with the clipped, bass-heavy tones of solo electric guitar works such as Suspension (TO 033.18CD), this rhythmically churning one-man-band monster of an album-length piece might seem to come out of nowhere. However, listeners who have followed the breadth of his work for the last few years (solo and in projects with collaborators from Jim ORourke to Stephen OMalley and Keith Rowe to Keiji Haino) will have noted how Ambarchi has allowed increasingly clear traces of his enthusiasms as a music listener (for classic rock, minimal techno and 70s fusion, among other areas) to surface in his performances and recordings, all the time filtering them through his signature long-form structures and psychoacoustic sonics. Recorded in a single inspired studio session, Sagittarian Domain displaces Ambarchis trademark guitar sound from the center of the mix, its presence felt only as an occasional ghostly, reverberated shimmer. Endlessly pulsating guitar and bass lines sit alongside electronic percussion and thundering motorik drumming (familiar from his work with Keiji Haino) at the core of the piece, locking into a voodoo groove, like Faust covering a 70s cop show theme. The work is founded on hypnotic almost-repetition, the accents of the drum hits and interlocking bass and guitar lines shifting almost imperceptibly back and forwards over the beat as they undergo gradual transformations of timbre. Cut-up and phase-shifted strings enter around the half-way mark like an abstracted memory of the Eastern-tinged fusion of the Mahavishnu Orchestras classic Visions of the Emerald Beyond, before returning for an extended, stark yet affecting come-down coda, equal parts Gavin Bryars and Purple Rain. While Sagittarian Domain contains traces of a diversity of influences, it mines all of them to uncover something that is clearly an extension of Ambarchis own investigations up to this point, exhibiting the same care for micro-detail and surrender to the physicality of sound that are present in all of his work, extending them in new ways to repetition, pulse and rhythm." --Francis Plagne; Vinyl cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, June 2012.

"Who would have thought a relaxed sunny afternoon, newfound friendships and some spur-of-the-moment would have resulted in whats been described as one of the most compelling documents of both free improvisation and electronic?" -- All Music Guide. "Its the people involved in Afternoon Tea -- originally released in 2000 on German label Ritornell and now available on vinyl for the first time with a new master, bonus tracks and newly discovered live recordings -- that ensured it as more than a happy accident. The twin guitar presence of AMMs Keith Rowe and Oren Ambarchi and kindred spirits of the laptop -- Sydneys Pimmon, Viennas Christian Fennesz and Peter Rehberg -- made it a momentous day. With all the players coming together during the 2000 What Is Music? Festival, Afternoon Tea stands as a highpoint of the then-emerging intersection between Powerbook performance and guitar improvisation. All subtlety, nuance and detail, it is a revelation of restraint. Built on a steadying flow of burbling rhythm, the quintet slowly weave around each others sonics in layers to create a tonal palette immersive in its atmosphere and magnetic in its compulsion. Hindsight clearly reveals the heart of these pieces -- important to note, considering they were recorded at a time when laptop performance was an alien concept to many in experimental music, suffering controversy and backlash as well as an over-abundance of pale approaches from many who took it on as novelty as opposed to serious musical pursuit. Those involved in the Afternoon Tea session left their Australian tour inspired, citing their merry time in the country eating, drinking and hanging out at the beach as well as their performances as a direct influence on their following work. Afternoon Tea remains one of the quiet and real achievers for experimental music of the past decade. Remastered in May 2009 and packaged in deluxe Stoughton gatefold jacket with artwork designed by Stephen OMalley. Vinyl edition of the CD reissue from Black Truffle Records, includes the same bonus tracks. First time ever available on vinyl." - Weird Forest.

Title: Anti-Matter Alma Mater
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Vinylization of the superb oddball cassette originally issued by the Potlatch, I Gather tape label in 2008. Ambergris is more or less the solo project of visual artist Matthew Thurber (1-800 MICE, etc.), although he is aided in this instance by Rebecca Bird. The suite of songs presented here is something like a theatrical recreation of one of Thurbers bizarre-world comics. Using voices, Casio, various Garage Band inventions and his own surreal imagination, Thurber takes us to a 10,000 year class reunion of the students of a space/art/science academy, from which our hero may have been physically expelled some millennia earlier. The first side focuses on the storyline, with music taking an incidental role. Something like the radio plays of Firesign Theater, it gets more brilliant as your high intensifies. The flip contains songs which have a vague similarity to some of the antic bands of the SF underground of the mid-1980s, if they had recorded themselves in SFs legendary Musee Mecanique. Housed in a lovely silkscreened cover of Thurberian design, Anti-Matter Alma Mater is the best of comics-based music to have traveled your way since Gary Panters last LP. Truly whipped.

This record spawned a genuine dance craze in Ghana and is even considered a foundational record of the hip lifestyle of hip hop that is popular in Ghana today.

Artist: AME SON
Title: Catalyse
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"The origins of Ame Son go back to the mid-sixties, when Bernard Lavialle (guitar), Bernard Stisi (guitar, vocals), Patrick Fontaine (bass) and Marc Blanc (drums) formed Les Primitivs circa 1965. They took the Parisian stages with a Yardbirds/Pretty Things inspired wild R&B set, and they kept active until Stisi left in 1967. At that point they changed their name to Expression, and with a more experimental approach they took their newly find free rock sound a la Soft Machine to night clubs and also to exhibitions of modern art. It was around that time that Marc Blanc met Australian ex-patriate Daevid Allen, who had been the guitarist with the Soft Machine until he hadnt been allowed to return to the UK after some south of France gigs of the band. Allen settled in Paris where he would form Gong, but before that he was to be joined by Blanc and Fontaine in his new project Banana Moon. After the Banana Moon period Lavialle, Fontaine, Blanc and flutist Francois Garrel regrouped under the name of Ame Son and were featured with great acclaim on some of the most important festivals of the era. The BYG label signed them and in 1970 they recorded their now legendary LP. The album was conceived pretty quickly and it has a spontaneous, energetic psychedelic/free rock feel with a pretty psychedelic prog sound that drinks from the same springs as bands such as Gong, the Soft Machine, the Pink Floyd or Guru Guru. Ame Son were one of the earliest French rock bands to go beyond the conventional rock and roll of the time, and Catalyse is considered to be one of the first truly progressive/underground efforts at thrity-three tours in France. The Wah Wah reissue features the original German gatefold cover, remastered sound, a repro of a very cool original Ame Son period poster plus photos and liner notes. Strictly limited to only 500 copies." -Wah Wah

Title: Murder Dull Mind
Format: 12"
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Recorded while DAMON MCMAHON was living as an expatriate in China, AMEN DUNES presents seven new stunning works of sunlit haziness. During the two years he lived abroad, he lived most of the time in an apartment on the north end of Beijing. He tracked these songs one summer in that apartment. With the exception of "Diane" and "Murder Dull Mind," all of these songs were recorded in one take and are completely improvisational; on repeated listens though, there is a pop-ness to these songs amidst the improvisation. The title track in particular, a melodic mantra-like work could certainly function on its own as a single. Although the songs have a bit less pre-written structure than Amen Dunes previous work on the Locust label, they are still every bit as miraculous. The geographical influence on his work central to both writing and recording conditions is evident here as these songs are way more open, and generally more free than his debut Dia (recorded in 2006 in a Catskills cabin) was. A bit less psych freak out and a bit more dark folk vibe throughout." - Sacred Bones.

Format: CD
Label: Sonboy
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Restocked. The original 1968 studio recording of Black & Beautiful, Soul & Madness by Amiri Baraka & The Spirit House Movers is finally available. Originally released on Barakas legendary Jihad label (along with the Sun Ra/LeRoi Jones collaboration A Black Mass. "After 40 years of constant chatter and occasionally a snippet heard by some radio DJ who had a copy, this record has for most people been something that they heard about but never heard. Beautiful Black Women was both a love song and an anthem coming to us in the midst of the fire that was the 60s. Madness was always my favorite because it spoke about the ultimate conclusion of a society going mad. It is even more relevant today than it was then. With this release, Sonboy Records continues its commitment to re-issuing the entire Jihad catalog." - Thomas J. Porter. "The spoken word/soul/jazz album Black & Beautiful, Soul & Madness is both an invaluable artifact of its political and musical moment, as well as a challenge to contemporary listeners to listen harder and more thoughtfully about what our music is daring us to do. The opening track, Beautiful Black Women, features Baraka reciting, or rather expounding, his poem with accompaniment by an understated bass by Bobby Lyle and the Singers cooing the refrain from Ooo Baby Baby by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Anticipating the mash-up genre by several decades, Baraka and the Spirit House Movers throw down the gauntlet immediately: here we have, in one track, the soul-pop hit and Barakas exhortation to and excoriation of a Black American culture obsessed with Whiteness, the one sound commenting on and complementing the other. The juxtaposition is precisely the point. The performance is an embodiment of Barakas blues people (articulated in his eponymous book), the continuum of Black music and art that, he argues, resists a (Western) aesthetic that would divide art into high and low or folk and serious. We are not allowed to simply sit back and groove, although the groove is still there. The album could almost be played at a party; if enough drinks are passed around, the party guests might not notice Barakas conclusion that "The White man, at best, is corny"...The work is not merely historical or documentary (although that aspect of the recordings is crucially important); these records must be heard, in all their shocking beauty and ugliness, as part of a living art." - Brent Mix/Junkmedia.org. "Black & Beautiful, Soul & Madness was the first word-music record I did completely devoted to this form. One piece on a New York Art Quartet side earlier, but Black & Beautiful was recorded at my home and in the small theater my wife, Amina, and I built there The Spirit House (33 Stirling St.) shortly after I had returned home to Newark, NJ, after the implosion of the Harlem based Blacks Arts Repertory Theater-School. Spirit House, like the Black Arts, was created to present Black theater, poetry, music and political dialogue. B&B was not the only side done on those premises, under the record label we created, Jihad A Black Mass with Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra was another. Sonnys Time Now with Sonny Murray and Donald Ayler the third. B&B featured Yusef Iman, an actor I met at the Black Arts who began to come to the Spirit House after the Arts folded. Yusef was a member of the Spirit House Movers & Players which we shortened to The Spirit House Movers (inspired by the dudes in a bar we went to who worked for a moving company). The singing group B&B, the Jihad Singers, was an R&B singing group that Yusef was a member of, the lead singer Freddie Johnson, who I never saw again after the record date. All the musicians were local. Singer Aireen Eternal was Yusefs wife. In our mind we wanted to create world-music that reflected the Motown vibe so popular in the late-60s. Beautiful Black Women used Smokey Robinsons OOOH Baby, Baby as a model. Black And Beautiful was created by Yusef & Freddie and seemed a classic R&B du-wop send-up. But we also had a clear vision of what we wanted to say regarding the Afro-American struggle for equal rights and self-determination, at least we thought of ourselves as cultural workers, revolutionary artists pushing the program as some of our cultural nationalist comrades were wont to say. I think you can feel our excitement and commitment." - Amiri Baraka, September, 2009. The Spirit House Movers: Freddy Johnson (lead & tenor), Leonard Cathcart (tenor), Aireen Eternal (2nd tenor), Gilbert Monk (baritone), Yusef Iman (bass), LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka) (spoken-word).

"The International Carnival of Experimental Sound, or ICES 72 for short, was an ambitious festival sprung from the mind of Harvey Job Matusow (1926-2002). Jumping off from his associations with the influential Source magazine, Harvey brought together over 300 artists from more than 21 countries to perform in London, England over the course of two weeks in August of 1972. Based on the theme of Myth, Magic Madness and Mysticism, he assembled an amazing diversity of performers working in diverse range of audio-visual arts. Encompassing happenings, films, dance, a train ride, and the phantom soft pool table, the focus was on sound -- specifically that of artists who were both composers and performers. Most of the concerts were held at The Roundhouse, a cavernous structure that was formerly a railroad engine house. Now, for the first time in 30 years, these recordings can be heard. This first CD in a series documenting the festival features the complete concert given by legendary free improvising group AMM. Represented here by Eddie Prevost and Lou Gare, they offer up powerful explosions of saxophone and drums punctuated with their famous AMM silences .

"Amolvacy is Aaron Moore from Volcano the Bear, Dave Nuss from No-Neck Blues Band, and Sheila 16 of the Laboratory Theater Group, NYC. The band creates compositions from its improvisations centered around strong elemental percussion, radical theatrical vocals, and classical acoustic instruments, reminding of Holy Modal Rounders, Moondog, The Fugs. Recurring themes in Amolvacys texts are the pain of relationships, the affirmation of the feminine in myth, the heros journey, and continuous need to flame the passions of the heart. ⿿A La Lu La⿝ specifically addresses the gap of language in facilitating accurate communication, a gap that only music at its most primal can fill. The back of the album features text by Jose da Fonseca & Pedro Carolino, two Portugese who in 1855 created an English phrasebook titled ⿿English As She is Spoke,⿝ but who faced just one problem: they didnt know any English. The linguistic train wreck that ensues mirrors the play of language, sound, and unintentional humor on ⿿A La Lu La.⿝ - Ultramarine. Edition 500, die-cut sleeve.

Ritualistic folk-rock, pastoral hippie songs, stoned jams, Eastern flavors, mystical passages and heavy hypnotic riffing which are in fact very different from the early Amon Düül epic freaked-out improvisations (Psychedelic Underground) or Amon Düül II complex and psyched-up progressive works (Phallus Dei). These were in fact archival recordings done by a different incarnation of Amon Duul, one that combined members of both factions into a floating line up welcoming many a guest, and which were released by R.U. Kaiser without the musicians knowledge or authorization, most likely in order to catch up with Amon Düül II rising popularity. All in all, a mythical recording featuring such underground classics as Love Is Peace, Snow Your Thurst Sun Open Your Mouth and Paramechanische Welt.

Taking the sheer repetitive brutality of a band like the Brainbombs and meshing it with the trance-like drone of a band like Suicide, these two songs have the guitars, drums, and synths all set to attack, and are not for the faint of heart. Sadly, in late 2007 Benoit passed away so now The Anals are done." - Sweet Rot

Incubating in the dark corners and dusty basements of New Yorks underground, the four piece unleashed themselves to an unprepared public in the summer of 2011 debuting at the labels curated showcase for Northside Fest. Chi (Zombie Vandals), Keegan (Thriller), Jasper (The Hunt, Cult of Youth) and Brett (Vultures) came together to form a group that both embraces and rejects the best sounds of the 80s. Too tribal for punk, too angry for deathrock, the only phrase that adequately describes this melding is Attic Noise." -Sacred Bones.

Format: 10"
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $15.00
"produced in conjuction with an exhibition at Fargfabriken, Stockholm in 2002. the first side is a rather nice minimal piece, while the second is something quite different." - Anomalous. "Primarily Henrik Andersson and Henrik Rylander are educated film and photomakers, with Rylander having some background as a drummer in Union Carbide Productions. Here they have one collaborative side and each a solo piece on the other side. For the collaborative side they created a piece which has 8 identical CD players playing 8 identical CDs. Each CD consists of 7 three second tracks with three tones (C, D, E, F, G, A and H). These CD players are played in a random way and develop by chance. The input sounds are sine waves, but they develop a strange organ like sound, which constantly changes - after each 3 seconds. But even when you use 8 identical players, it happens that the speed is a little bit different so phase shiftings occur. Even if we leave out the ramble about the religious aspects of the organ like sounds, its a very nice piece. On the other side there is first the Rylander piece. Working in probably similar vein, but here the sound input is a beat loop. Very much an old Noto piece, which unfortunally drags on too much. Anderssons piece is based on guitar loops, which is maybe too short to show what the possibilities could have been. Maybe a more conceptual and collaborative work like on the other side would have been a better idea." - Frans de Waard in Vital Weekly 318.

"THE ANDROIDS OF MU were a noisy all-girl early post-punk band that emerged from London, UK, in 1979, alongside the likes of The Slits and The Raincoats.They met up in the wild squatter-lands of west London. SUZE THE BLOOZ, CORRINA, COZMIC and BESS became immersed in the local counter-culture. They grounded themselves in psychedelic synthesizer and guitar music, playing with Planet Gong and Here & Now, and musicians from Hawkwind. When they finally got hold of a cheap synth and a noisy guitar of their own, they used them, at full volume, with fat bass and bouncing drums, to record an album in the form of their new, colourful and zazzy reflections of life, from under the long dark shadow of puppet Thatchers corporate new Britain. They gigged around, sharing bills with the likes of The Mob, Zounds and The Astronauts. Blood Robots was recorded at lo-fi cult studio Street Level in 1979, this was their only ever album, originally released on Fuck Off Records. Now, cruel world, it is time for you to receive it.

Title: Labia Minora
Format: CD
Label: Printed Matter/Captain Trip
Country: USA/Japan
Price: $14.00
"On Angelblood⿿s new CD, Labia Minora, musical styles and influences mesh and collide in a simultaneously jarring and hypnotic sonic netherworld of hope and despair. Gnarled chants and incantations alternate with ethereal floating singing, conjuring the images and emotions of pagan ritual, blood sacrifice and the quest for redemption. Crunching rhythm guitars and bass pierced by screaming leads form the dark heavy metal undertow of the album⿿s sound. This is set to repetitive melodies with something of an earthy folk bent, creating a unique, swaying, dirge-like atmosphere ⿿ only to be disrupted by the blistering drums and the chainsaw drill of the speed metal reprise, the growl of the hunter-wolf, the bellow of the slain beast. The epic final cut balances on the edge of dissonance and noise, the croon of the sister-brethren, the blood of the slaughtered pig. Angleblood is Lizzi Bougatsos (vocals), Rita Ackermann (vocals), Brian DeGraw (bass), Dave Nuss (drums) and Anders Nilssen (guitar). On Labia Minora special guest Mick Barr (of Orthrelm and Chromtech) plays guitar. Angelblood was formed in the year 2000, and has played internationally in both music and art venues. Labia Minora is their third CD. In addition to being a band, Angelblood is also a performance art group, whose dark motifs and ritualized actions match the concerns of the band. Finally, Angelblood also creates collaborative art works, distinguished by a combination of distinctive drawing and edgy collage. In all of its various incarnations, Angelblood is characterized by a raw, almost desperate approach to art and life, realms which, in the Angleblood ethos, are indistinguishable. It is this rebellious attitude of refusal and iconoclasm, coupled incongruously, yet sincerely, with a sense of pathos and reverence, that sets Angleblood apart from the monotonous drone of monolithic culture." - Printed Matter.

"Mambo Mange is the eponymous 4th & final album by a fine NY ensemble who unfortunately imploded at the peak of their game. Originally fronted by twin femme vocalists Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance) & celebrated visual artist Rita Ackermann, for what would be the bands final foray, the duo enlisted Anders Nilsson (Aorta), Matt Heyner (NNCK), Dave Nuss (NNCK) & Brian DeGraw (Gang Gang Dance, Cranium). Ackermanns Yoko Ono-inspired freak-outs, feline growls & orgasmic yodels and Bougatsos breathy wordless space panting over Matt the Count Heyners seriously beefy power chords, Nilssons sinewy solos, DeGraws bass thump & Nuss propulsive drumming made for the most thoroughly realized vision of Angelbloods art + metal sound. Angelblood played decidedly out of bounds & ahead of the curve.

Reissue of this classic outsider freak-out album, first issued by Pilz in 1972 , featuring the duo of Paul & Limpe Fuchs (vocals, electronics, zither, percussion, drums, Fuchshorn, etc.). Their 2nd album and a classic example of 70s improvisational madness, highly peaked. "Anima were an adventurous German trio who liked to take jazz music to the extreme. On this album they were joined by Austrian avant-gardist Friedrich Gulda, with whom they recorded two studio jamming sessions. Nothing was decided beforehand or premeditated, and the result is two tracks of completely spontaneous off the wall jazz. Anima are one of the few of Rolf Ulrich-Kaisers proteges who are still actively touring and recording today." - Think Progressive.

"After the success of the previous Wah Wah reissue of Anima Sounds Stürmischer Himmel we are proud to offer a first ever vinyl reissue of their Musik Für Alle album, one of the rarest private pressings in the Krautrock scene. In 1971 Paul and Limpe Fuchs loaded their instruments on an old tractor and spent six months touring through Germany at 20 km/h. When the summer came, they stopped in front of Willy Neubauers recording studio in Düsseldorf and there they taped a music memory of the tour. Two long pieces, 17 minute long improvisations titled N Da Da Uum Da and Traktor Go Go Go, were to be privately released as an LP on their own Altepfarhof label. By some, these two tracks can surely be considered as one of the best psychedelic experiences ever created, due to the intensity of the recording. On their performance the group produced many wonderful and inspired sounds, many of them coming from Paul Fuchs self-built instruments, and counted with the post-production collaboration of Neubauers Echolette Ringmodulater. The Wah Wah reissue has been properly licensed from Limpe Fuchs herself, reproduces the original cover art and features an insert with photos." -Wah Wah

***LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER***

"After almost three years of planning Catsup Plate is proud to announce the release of Animal Crack Box, a three LP collection of Animal Collective recordings spanning the years 2000 through 2003. These songs were recorded live, at practice sessions and in other non-studio environs and most have never been released in any form whatsoever. And those that have been release sound so markedly different that long-time fans will not be disappointed. Throughout their career, Animal Collective has existed at the crossroads of uncompromising experimentalism, classic song structure and ecstatic expressionism -- a crossroads that this set further underscores. The songs veer from the early percussion/feedback wailings to the Campfire Songs style acoustica to wall of sound forest children vocal chanting. The sonics are rough in places as these were originally recorded more for reference than for an actual release, but the power of the songs and the bands uncompromising intensity are apparent all the way through. Fans of the bands recent work may be surprised by the cacophony at times, but peel away the layers of sound and the essential compositional and performative brilliance is staring you in the face.

Each record jacket is silkscreened in four overprinted colors and housed in a super sturdy four overprinted color silkscreened outer slipcase held together by a two color silkscreened "obi" strip. This thing is a 12 x 12 brick. The recording selections were overseen by Animal Collective themselves, who poured over hundreds of hours of tapes to come up with this tracklisting. The Hieronymus-Bosch-meets-the-early-Looney-Tunes-work-of-Max-Fleischer illustrations were drawn by Jon Vermilyea and the whole package was art directed and designed by Rob Carmichael. This is a single edition of 1000 copies, with no digital or CD version planned." - Catsup Plate.

"Paw Tracks is proud to present the reissue of Animal Collectives 2003 album Campfire Songs. Since the CDs original issue on Catsup Plate recently went out of print it is our intention to simply keep the cd in print for as long as possible. An idea originally thought up by Dave Portner and Noah Lennox while in college, Campfire Songs is not a record of songs sung around a campfire but a record that hints at songs emerging from the fire itself: "We wanted to give the music the feeling and atmosphere of the outdoors and the warmth of a fire, so people could bring it indoors." A collection of five songs written over a period of four to five years, Campfire Songs is an escape from the clutter and electronic assault of the groups 2001 release Danse Manatee and the tour that preceded it. However, the tapestry quality of the songs and the lines that blur endings from beginnings and jams from compositions highlight a style that the boys had become comfortable with from touring and would continue to work on in the years that followed on records like Here Comes The Indian and Feels. While the songs were completed in the apartment that three of the members shared (Geologist does not play on this album) they chose to record the music on a screened-in porch in Maryland using portable mini disc players so as to allow the ambience of trees blowing in the wind, the birds chirping and the insects in the area to become an integral part of the sound flow. What remains intact are the melodies that have always been a part of the AC sound�??though here they have been stripped away of any electronic accompaniment and stretched and slowed to a calmer place than anywhere AC had been before and perhaps has gone since." - Paw Tracks.

"Animals + Men -- named after a song by Adam and the Ants -- started life around the winter of 1978-1979 when Susan Wells took over vocal duties in what was a three piece called Psychotic Reaction. Based in Frome Somerset, their first release Dont Misbehave in the New Age (1980) was an indie hit. When the band split in 81, Susan and Ralph formed the Terraplanes. A & M/Terraplanes released three vinyl 45s. A few years ago, demos by the band surfaced on the Messthetics/Hyped 2 Death label. Recently, the band have reformed and performed the odd gig and are releasing an EP of new songs soon on Convulsive Records. Mississippi Records is proud to be the first to release an entire LP containing the three 45s and early demos, all recorded between 1979-1983. For fans of early UK DIY." -Mississippi

"studio recording of Jeph Jermans small sound orchestra with Dave Knott, Mike Shannon, Jeffery Taylor, Robert Millis and Marina Granger. "in seattle in 1996, i began giving performances using mainly natural objects as my instruments. after many such performances, two friends suggested (independently of one another), that i might try doing it with a group. as this idea had occurred to me a few years previously, i thought perhaps they were right. in june of 1999, the animist orchestra began its history as a working group. we got together nearly every week for the next three months, to play and discuss our playing. our first performance was given in eric lanzillottas living room for a small group of friends, and was well received. from the beginning, the focus of the orchestra has been on listening, and improvising in the moment. a group of people truly playing together and focusing intently on the present can be a powerful thing. the use of natural objects (stones, shells, pine cones etc.) as opposed to more conventional musical instruments, can help the players to not fall back on learned habits of musical play. there is no canon or book of rules to refer to when using everyday things as sound makers, and this may facilitate the removal of actions arising from taste and memory. during the initial period of discovery for the orchestra, dave knott made the observation that, when when playing and focusing on the sound being made, it was like the spirit of the thing is telling you ho it wants to move. mike shannon once told me that when i play i seem to be animating the objects with my hands. i think these comments explain the name of the orchestra better than i could. i wanted to make a CD of the orchestra to document our work together, and to show my admiration and gratitude for the friends who have agreed to join. i dont think they knew what they were getting into." - jeph jerman.

Title: Forma II
Format: CD
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Forma II is the first collaborative output by Thomas Ankersmit and Valerio Tricoli. Composed and recorded in Berlin from 2008 to 2010, the music consists of four electroacoustic pieces based largely on analog synthesizer material and one long-form, swarm-like composition for multiple overdubbed saxophones. Additional sounds range from metal foil floating on ultrasonic sound-beams to mechanical clickers recorded in the abandoned radar domes at Teufelsberg. The raw materials have been extensively processed and re-constructed using analog tape and digital methods. The five pieces shift between sharply detailed blizzards of electronic interference to passages of delicate balance, between calm and turbulence, between stasis and rapid shape-shifting, between multiple virtual spaces and non-spaces. Thomas Ankersmit is a saxophonist, electronic musician and installation artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam, who combines abstract, intensely-focused acoustic saxophone work with hyper-kinetic analog synth and computer improvisation. He also creates installation pieces that use sound, infrasound and "modifications to the acoustic characters of spaces" that disrupt the viewer/listeners perception of the exhibition space and their presence within it. He frequently works together with New York minimalist Phill Niblock. Other recent collaborators have included Kevin Drumm and Borbetomagus. Valerio Tricoli is a Berlin-based composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer, sound engineer and curator bridging musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound with a radical interest in how reality, virtuality and memory relate to each other during the acoustic event. He mostly uses analog electronic devices (reel-to-reel tape recorders, synthesizers, microphones, light effects, ultrasonic speakers). The structure of the set-up is ever-changing however, seeking multiple relations between the performers, the device and the space in which the event takes place. He is one of the founders of 3/4HadBeenEliminated and the Bowindo label/collective. The CD is mastered by Rashad Becker at Clunk, in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. It is packaged in a pro-press digisleeve jacket which itself is housed in a one-tone silk-screened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs, with artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Whereas the theme park attracts millions and millions of joyous visitors each year, the school (empty since 1980 and still in search of a buyer) attracts only teenage glue-sniffers and vandals, who have left their calling card in the form of broken windows, collapsing floors and the ever-present aroma of Kestrel Extra Strength. Our Lady looks out from her vantage point above the once-grandiose assembly hall to view a sea of broken glass, empty beercans, asbestos and spraypainted profanity. These recordings were made over a two-year period using only acoustic and battery-operated musical implements. Hear creaking floors, resonant cavern drone, wind hammering against fragile glass and instruments weaving in and out of sounds generated by the buildings themselves.

Title: Osmose

Country: Japan
Price: $33.00
2nd pressing on purple vinyl. "Annexus Quam had actually a quite long career, having their roots in the outfit Ambition Of Music, formed back in 1967 Kamp-Lintfort (near Dorf). By 1970, and paying tribute to their early name, they had incorporated a whole array of influences (most important one, the inclusion of jazz instrumentation) and brewed them in what was becoming a very personal progressive fusion of styles, best witnessed in their their debut album Osmose. At that time, the band had grown into a septet formed by Uwe Bick (drums, vocals, percussion), JJonuschies (bass, vocals, percussion), Werner Hostermann (clarinet, organ, vocals, percussion), Peter Werner (guitar, vocals, percussion), Hans K᭰er (trombone, Spanish guitar, vocals, percussion), Ove Volquartz (sax) and Harald Klemm (flute, vocals, percussion). Far from a typical jazz sound, they were able to integrate rock and jazz instrumentation into a unique style, which borrowed elements from the aforementioned genres but blended those into an ultimate cosmic fusion (which can recall at times the Third Ear Band, Xhol Caravan or even Ash Ra Tempel yet remaining totally their own). Actually, Annexus Quam were able to sound meditative, doomy, stoned, aggressive, exotic and lyrical in the same track without loosing any musical coherence or perspective. With their personal style that even today defies categorization (except for that big umbrella we call kraut rock),Annexus Quam had all the inventiveness and excitement of the 1969/1970 German bands. Osmose is a most unique album by an equally unique band, housed in one of the most luxurious, elaborated and tripped-out gimmix covers ever made, now reproduced in all its multi-folding glory.

Probably I thought it was too fucked up or something to like it back then. But today my kids I have to say its one of the best songs Ive heard in a long time. So wacky. So much “fuck you” attitude it hurts lies buried in this masterpiece. The guitar solo brings Geza X to mind for some reason. Sounds so controlled yet like he couldnt care less if it would fit.

Country: Russian Federation
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

An UK-based collective that holds four members at its core but has included up to 15 different participants. Utilizing people who have never sung or played before. An improvisational spontaneity reined in with editing and production. Each song is an artifact of a band in continuous flux. Antifamily stride the acerbic, detached, anxious, cathartic, and brittle with intellect and innovation. Distancing the likes of Erase Errata and Numbers with a nod toward Lilliput, Can, and Velvet Underground along the way. Syncopated repetition, guitar flourishes, electronic hooks, and lyrical content are all part and process of an actuated dialogue where obscurantist tactics flirt with convention in a trialectic loop of art, philosophy, and music." - Other Music.

"An obscure rarity from St. Louis! Decent to really good punky pop rock and sorta Paisley Underground-ish sounds. The band was led by Tony from the Camaros who were one of the first-wave Punk bands from the area. They had Mike Yaffe who was between his stints in Max Load and Bob Leach who was in Trained Animal (Test Patterns comp) and the infamous MRR-baiting White Pride. The drummer is Mike Doskicil, who was also in White Pride and the front man for sludge-core legends Drunks With Guns. Of course, this doesnt sound like any of those bands. The record was never issued in a cover. A few may have been sold in blank jackets, but most (probably all) without any jacket at all. 500 copies were pressed, but according to the band, as many as a couple hundred were tossed out or damaged in storage. They made an 8 1/2" x 14" piece of art with titles/info which was printed on red construction paper. The record was never distributed outside the St. Louis area, and less than 100 were sold when the band was active. Most probably came with the art work but many of those probably never survived the trip home after a gig. Some copies were later sold at local reunion gigs and other events, but the record is still virtually unknown outside of St. Louis. Almost every other copy of the art work was used for the blank backside for set lists, scratch paper or even lost in moves or just tossed out. We estimate that only 100-150 copies at most actually received the art, including any copies sold in recent years. We first learned about the record in 2000, and of the 10-12 copies weve seen in used bins or private collections since, weve only encountered a couple with the original art. We obtained the last remaining copies of the original, unplayed vinyl from the band. Weve housed them in a blank white jacket and made high quality (and now larger 11" x 17") reprints of the original artwork." -Rerun.

“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.

Divining inspiration from myriad and disparate fake-loric sources -- Egyptology, drug abuse, early Freemasonry, Carnatic music, Oramics in Ardwick, Kommune pop and Letterist actions, to name a few -- this protagonist projects dank and discomforting electro-acoustic psych-scapes quite unlike anything already in circulation. Reclaimed fragments of degenerated second-class sound are dredged from silty memory banks, soaked in ether and draped across a skeletal framework of possessed percussions and concrète bridges, plotting a labyrinthine course through hallucinatory interzones seldom travelled by the sane of mind. Alchemical formulations of sampled textures catalyze noxious atmospheres; unheimlich apparitions bypass liminal dimensions, making connections between electric Smithsonian releases and primitive mechanical industry, muddying the waters of sonic fiction until its too dense to make sense of anything.

""The Apryl Fool was a very accomplished late-60s band from Japan whose lone, self-titled 1969 album is a great mixture of hard psych and blues-rock. Their best-known track is probably The Lost Mother Land, Pt. 1, which was featured on the Japanese volume of QDKs Love, Peace And Poetry series, certainly one of the most crazed, over-the-top productions and performances in the entire series, with its massively phased and treated vocals and general menace. But that tune is really the anomaly on the album, despite the prevalence of monstrous fuzz guitar on a number of tracks. At their heart, The Apryl Fool seem to be a blues-rock band, although one that was clearly experimenting with the burgeoning psychedelic scene. Tracks like Another Time, Honky Tonk Jam, and Bob Dylans Pledging My Time are pretty straight blues-rock, and April Blues just adds some fuzz guitar to a boogie-woogie piano bit. The other tracks up the psych quotient considerably, like on Tomorrows Child, with its Farfisa and wicked fuzz leads, or the aforementioned The Lost Mother Land Pt. 1. There are additional crazy tape effects on The Lost Mother Land Pt. 2. About half the tunes are in English and half in Japanese, but its all good stuff. Historical footnote: years later, bass player Haruomi Hosono would become a member of one of Japans most popular music groups ever, Yellow Magic Orchestra." --Sean Westergaard, All Music Guide; Housed in a highly collectable limited edition LP replica card wallet.

Title: Sung In Broken Symmetry
Format: LP
Label: Students of Decay
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Describing the music of Aquarelles Ryan Potts is a difficult task indeed. Its related to the hazy, heavily treated output of musicians such as Fennesz and Tim Hecker, but one would be remiss to locate it solely within the realm of electronic ambient or drone, as there are often strong organic, rhythmic and composerly elements to Potts work. In fact, the title of his last record, Slow Circles, might offer the best point of access into the Aquarelle aesthetic, in which compositional tropes such as cyclicality and accretion are woven together with surging, bright overtones, fragmented acoustic guitar melodies, and monumental distortion. Another point of distinction between Potts guitar-based compositions and that of the laptop-wielding contemporaries and forebears amongst whom one would be tempted to locate his sound is the fact that he largely eschews digital, in-the-box processing. A self proclaimed FX pedal fetishist, his compositions carry with them a boldness, depth and grit that is all but impossible to cultivate through DSP alone and aligns some elements of his sound with that of Scott Cortez/Lovesliescrushing and late-period Yellow Swans. Using a palette of electric and acoustic guitars, vintage and boutique effects pedals and various percussion sources, Potts crafts highly detailed, slowly evolving soundscapes which beg for repeat listens so that one might get inside their myriad layers. With Verticals opens the record, blooming suddenly into a startlingly propulsive edifice replete with crackling, distorted guitar sounds married to quasi-Reichian percussion. Later, Origin sizzles and hisses its way into a staggeringly detailed drone opus before opening up into a veritable vista of acoustic guitar, cymbal and cello histrionics. A cohesive and fully immersive collection, Sung in Broken Symmetry is an assured statement from a young musician who is equally comfortable navigating frailty and violence. Mastered by James Plotkin. Edition of 300." -Students of Decay.

"In the group of celestial beings that was THE SOURCE FAMILY, RIANA stood out with an almost angelic vibration. Even before she became one of FATHER YODs 13 wives, her presence was exceptional to all who met her. She was among the first to join The Source Familys brotherhood, and she brought her youthful energy, bright with laughter and joy, to all the activities within the household, starting with morning mediation and on through the day. In 73 and 74, the music was pouring out of the Father House, with the releases Kohoutek, Contraction, Expansion and All Or Nothing at All credited to Father Yod and THE SPIRIT OF 76, with additional recordings Penetration: An rian Symphony, To the Principles for the Children, Im Gonna Take You Home and Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa credited to YA HO WA 13, the group of talented young men who formed the nucleus of The Source Familys house band. The wild spirit of these records is the essence of The Source Family myth. But there were many members of their brotherhood, and many of them were sisters. After all this male energy had gained release, Father felt it was time to project the female energy they had on the next release. Plans for rianas album were started, but this was during a time of upheaval and movement for the family that resulted in them moving from their base in Los Angeles to Hawaii. It was there that Father passed over in 1976. After that, the Source brotherhood slowly dispersed and carried on to other phases in their life. It wasnt until the re-appearance of The Source Family records on the Japanese CD box set God and Hair in the mid-90s that a significant amount of energy came back to The Source Family. Since then, several albums of material from the Isis rian Archives have been released, as well as two books, and earlier this year, "The Source Family" documentary. Here in the year of 2013, it is an ideal time to bring rianas music to the people as was meant to happen nearly 40 years ago. Unfortunately, she is not here with us to journey back to the place and time of these performances; riana passed over in the mid-90s. But in the grooves of this LP, riana lives again! She plays with a questing passion and soulful devotion, with all but one song performed solo on the piano. Her lyrics sing of the spirit with pure visions, but are all directed to the source through the focus of her true love: Yahowa. rianas was a life devoted to improving life on the planet for all people, and as she worked towards her goals, she touched the lives of many people. In addition to the son she bore Father, her music here stands as one of her greatest achievements, finally to be shared with the world she loved so deeply." - Drag City.

“Improvised, channeled and recorded in one take at Tunefork Recording Studios on August 9, 2013, Beirut, Lebanon. Mixed and mastered by Fadi Tabbal on October 10, 2013, Beirut, Lebanon. A unique figure in the international noise and industrial music scenes, Osman Arabi is a composer, producer and sound designer from Tripoli, Lebanon. His work elicits images of desolate industrial landscapes and shamanistic rites. From his beginnings in black metal, Arabi has progressed through such genres as dark ambient, industrial, tribal, psychedelic, electro-acoustic, power electronics and noise. His many projects have included Seeker, Kafan, Veinen, Shamanic Death Trance, The Ritual Inclusion Of Code, harsh electronics outfit 20.SV, as well as nihilist Dutch collective Stalaggh. In 2000, Arabi stopped performing live -- vanishing into the underground, not resurfacing until 2009. For the past decade, Arabi has been developing -- in complete secrecy -- his "occult guitar" playing, based on the sigil work of Austin Osman Spare. This new thread to his work was only recently unveiled, in late 2013, and is set to become the backbone of his live rituals here on in. Limited to 150 copies. Illustration by SavX.” - The Tapeworm.

Title: Null II/Null III
Format: Double CD
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $21.00
"Null II and Null III are the second and third part of Italian/Swiss composer Luigi Archettis massive electronic work on the theme of "nothing" ("Null"), whose first part saw the light with the 2010 Die Schachtel "Null" edition in the ZeitComposers series (ZEITC 003CD). Within these pieces, Archettis thick sound-drones border on the edge of tonality as their many layers develop with a sort of "geological" pace. The work is in fact intended as musical research on the "interior" of sound, obtained by large masses of sound punctuated by seemingly minimalistic details. The mastery of Luigi Archetti conducts the listener deeply inside the musical event, while at the same time introducing a model, just like the traces of a gold seam in rocks, which the listener can follow and frequently re-encounter over the 140 minutes in which the music unfolds. The result is a trance-inducing sense of slow-motion and even stillness, alternating with subtle changes often obtained only by tiny, almost "invisible" variables. Null is a vast and profound place where perception is confronted with a stream of slow-developing, sometime "still" sound. Null II and Null III will certainly appeal to fans of Eliane Radigue, Thomas Köner and long and sustained drone electronic music in general." -Die Shcachtel.

There was no letter with the package and no return address. Both records are very haunting and moving, reminding me of Simon Finns Pass the Distance and a couple of other beautiful and obscure albums which usually get lazily classified as loner folk. I havent been able to find anything out about them at all from the internet or from record collectors. But thank you to whoever sent them. I was touched and intrigued." - David Tibet. Totally out-of-nowhere, "unknown" LP received a month or two back, unsolicited, from an address in Illinois. Immediately we thought "Jim Collins", "Terry", "Boots/CC/Snake & Remus", etc, due to the similar geographic origins, and the sound doesnt negate that theory. Our source for the Collins and Terry LPs (sold out years ago) couldnt (or wouldnt?) give us confirmation about this or its apparent "sister" LP, Tommy Roundtree. The mystery continues..

Recorded in NYC in 1972 and remastered from tape transfer. Silkscreened tip-on jackets. "Arica was the music branch of the Arica Institute, whose founder famously collaborated with Alejandro Jodorowsky and convinced him to indoctrinate his entire crew in the Institutes cultish new age teachings before filming The Holy Mountain. Piano, synth, hypnotic percussion and plenty of tape delay - Music in the Nine Rings is an immersive psychedelic new age masterpiece - think Agitation Free, Limbus 4, Deuter-D. This recording almost certainly includes some of the same uncredited musicians that played on Woo Soo/Audition in 1972 and Heaven in 1973, so its no surprise theres a jazz sensibility in the overall structure and the playing. This record is eminently listenable but its unhurried improvisation has more to do with a subtle manipulation of musical tension than the relaxation promises of 80s new age. As the history of new age music is slowly created by people that werent there, Music in the Nine Rings will be a celebrated example of when the genre coalesced and a way of thinking musically showed its potential." - Poodle.

Much further downstream, a giant wall of light scaffolding fades into view. That is destinys orphan multiverse inhabiting a single frame in its infancy. In time, we would transcend it. From where we stand our footsteps recede and fade into the darkness. But our beginnings are not lost; for someone standing off and above our horizon, in a human ear much more young, the secret of our coming of age shall be preserved revealed and discovered yet once again...." --Ariel Pink, November 2012; Thrash and Burn dates from a time when Ariel Rosenberg, then a few years from turning "Pink," first proclaimed himself a "20th Century Composer" without a trace of irony in his voice. Appropriately, this early work takes the form of a musique concrète epic forged from Rosenbergs late-90s faux-primitif, garage-punk, and tape-loop experiments. At 94 minutes and 36 tracks, Thrash and Burn displays the symphonic ambitions of his genre-devouring pop saga, Haunted Graffiti, but with little in the way of fastidious album-oriented constructions. Rather, Thrash and Burn is a free-form tape ramble that uses gauzy atmospherics to strike up a wicked dialogue with the likes of Rosenbergs non-pop influences, like Iannis Xenakis, Pierre Schaeffer, and Luc Ferrari. (In particular, Schaeffers "Symphonie pour un homme seul" seems to get plenty of nods here.) Thrash and Burn was discovered in 2005, in an ankle-deep pile of cracked cassettes and scratched CD-Rs in Rosenbergs Beverly Hills flat. Grier and Rosenberg then made an initial reconstruction attempt, and Thrash and Burn became a 4-cassette box set for the inaugural release of Human Ear Music, in 2006. The Wikipedia page for Thrash and Burn places its origin sometime in 1998. It was remastered in September 2012 in Berlin, Germany.

Title: Arkansaw Man
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Here is the unlikely CD debut of Arkansaw Man, a wildly obscure San Francisco art-punk band that flickered to life all so briefly in 1981. 25 minutes of music, 25 years ago -- and sayonara. Still, the best things in life -- in the life of music, anyway -- often are tucked away where they are hard to find. With a brilliant economy of means and a sparseness reminiscent of dub, the band got an amazing jump start on post-rock. It revels in terse and choppy guitar, the languid, sour leakage of keyboards and horns, and occasional lyrics sung as ironic disclaimer, while the spare yet vaguely ominous bass lines recall Gang of Four played back at 4 RPM. A quarter of a century ago, the spindly funk machinery and discordant scraping guitars of Arkansaw Man failed to give the world much to latch onto, so its music got lost, abandoned in a locker at pop cultures bus depot, the key left floating in a gutter somewhere one day to be scavenged. Theres no better place to find a glimmer of artistic gold." - Table Of The Elements.

Title: I Luoghi Del Potere
Format: CD
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
"Art Fleury was born in Brescia, Northern Italy, in the mid-70s. They were still in their teens when they had the opportunity to open for the group Area at the famous Parco Lambro Festival in Milan (1976), in front of fifty thousand people. In the following years they extensively toured and played with Henry Cow, and in 1980 they were finally able to produce and release their first record, I Luoghi del Potere (The places of power), which they started recording in 1977. Superficially (or intentionally) included in the prog genre, I Luoghi del Potere (originally conceived as the soundtrack of an imaginary movie), is a very personal and radical experience, at times recalling Fausts free-form Kraut riffing, or the industrial sound collages of Nurse With Wound. The music is articulated through an outstanding dynamic juxtaposition of instrumental parts, with frequent structural and harmonic fragmentations, and a diverse array of unusual sound elements: from a sort of brass-band progression to radio frequencies, from cacophonic intermezzos to expressionist tape-collage techniques. Through this free flow of sounds, only apparently casual, the group wanted to expose the alienation, the folly, the hopes and fears of their times, through a creative act that pushed to the limits their expressive means." - Die Schachtel.

"THE ART MUSEUMS exploded onto the imaginary Pop Art scene in their minds back in 2010 with the widely acclaimed Rough Frame LP on Woodsist. Comfortably occupying the spot where 60s pop suss meets first-wave post-punk DIY pop and contemporary bedroom experimentation, they craft positively giddy tunes that make terms like lo-fi and indie-pop redundant and pointless; this is just great pop made by people who know and love it. The Museums GLENN DONALDSON and JOSH ALPER have been at it in the bedroom for a little while now and are there for you when youre feeling confused, lonely or alienated and only a 45 RPM single can help. "Dancing With a Hole in Your Heart" is an ace sing-along tune that would be right at home on Dan Treacys legendary Whaam! label, a succinct 1:30 of slashing, modish guitars and great vocal harmonies. "Imaginary Day" and "You Dont Want to Live Like That" are equally fab-catchy tunes filled with earnestly strummed guitars, thumping drum machines and cheap keyboards. Crucial, elemental pop thrills." - Slumberland.

"The sleepy beauty of the Art Museums debut album Rough Frame (Woodist) appeared seemingly out of nowhere, but their apparent off-the-cuff casualness and unpretentious brilliance come as the logical bubbling up of years absorbing the arcane musical corners of the 60s, 70s, and 80s - where utopian folk visions, pop-art obsessions, giddy punk and new wave sheen all make perfect sense. The few who have seen The Art Museums have been lucky to hear bits of their backlog of as-yet-unreleased songs,and now the first treasures are finally seeing sunlight: Feel Like Dreams is a boyish reverie that soars along pre-prog Genesis-style keyboard chords above crisp drum machine cracks. Its all really unexpected and works like you wouldnt believe! And S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G? Well, without hyperbole, we can say that it is, to us, the most enjoyable one minute, forty-five seconds put on tape in a long, long time. The Style Council stripped of pomp and set to a thunderous low-end of rumbling electronic drums, S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G is disposable in all the right ways, the perfect mod-pop soundtrack to your no-longer-dull walk down the street.

"In 1976, a self-released LP by Art Zoyd appeared in Belgian record stores. At the time, nobody knew Symphonie Pour Le Jour Où Brûleront Les Cités (trans. Symphony For The Day Cities Will Burn) would be the first of many albums from this strange chamber progressive rock outfit. All the ingredients of Art Zoyds sound for its first decade are here: unusual acoustic instrumentation for a rock band (violin, cello, piano and trumpet, plus guitar, bass, and percussion), dark and mysterious atmospheres recalling Frances Magma and foretelling Univers Zero (formed by Art Zoyd percussionist Daniel Denis), and complex pieces owing as much to contemporary classical as to progressive rock. The line-up for this first offering included Patricia Dallio (piano), Alain Eckert (guitar, vocals), Gérard Hourbette (violin), Jean-Pierre Soarez (trumpet, percussion), and Thierry Zaboïtzeff (bass, cello, vocals). The album is split into two parts. The first is Symphonie Pour Le Jour Où Brûleront Les Cités in three parts: an apocalyptic work opening with mad laughter, a vision of the end of the world with percussion clashing, frenetic violin motifs, and the trumpet from Judgment Day. Part one, Brigades Spéciales, is the most striking moment of the album. Then comes Deux Images De La Cité Imbécile (trans. Two Pictures Of The Stupid City), two movements leaning more towards some warped chamber rock conception of the burlesque, especially on Scènes De Carnaval. For a first exposition, Symphonie Pour Le Jour Où Brûleront Les Cités was as impressive as could be and earned the band an immediate cult following." -John Bush.

"Its only appropriate that Solaris, Russian filmmaker ANDREI TARKOVSKYs psychological sci-fi classic from 1972, contains an equally original and mind-bending score. Solaris explores the inadequacies of time and memory on an enigmatic planet below a derelict space station. To reinforce the films chilling setting, Tarkovsky commissioned composer EDUARD ARTEMIEV to construct an electronic soundscape reflecting planet Solaris amorphous and mysterious surface; Artemiev rose to the challenge with a prophetic work that defies the eras technological limitations while evoking unparalleled emotional responses even today. Artemievs score-centered around variations on Bachs "Chorale Prelude in F-Minor," a somber piece for solo organ-sounds majestic alongside dissonant crescendos and formless, ambient tracks. Armed with the massive ANS synthesizer Artemiev drafted sine waves on glass plates for the machine to interpret. The only prototype of the ANS was destroyed shortly after the Solaris soundtrack was recorded. Luckily this artifact of transcendent composition married with technological innovation endures as a masterpiece of early electronic music. Superior Viaduct is honored to present the first-time official release of Artemievs original soundtrack for the film. Hand-assembled jackets with three unique designs." -Superior Viaduct.

Arthur was a Canadian musician who recorded this unique masterpiece as a demo-only one sided album on the "Two Dot" label in Colorado in 1969. Only a hand full of demo copies were released and sent out to major labels to get a record deal. This happened only later after he signed with Tumbleweed Records and released two albums as Arthur Gee. This first ever official release includes his complete demo lp, unreleased sessions and his mega rare 45 rpm both from before the LP and recorded in Canada. The music can be described as a mixture of Perry Leopold, William C.Beeley and early Pink Floyd (his 45 rm) which is pure magic.

"Artificial Organs evolved out of the Melbourne music scene in 1980s. They played at venues like Melbourne University and The Organ Factory; a creative incubator for various "little bands" whose avant-garde music focused on electronic and synthetic sound. Artificial Organs explored the potentials of innovative consumer tools for music and recording including Casio keyboards and drum machines, Korg synthesizers; Syndrums and the Akai four-track, quarter inch tape deck. The Memento Mori album was influenced by the zen elegance of rhythm-tracker Laurie McRae; the badboy-punk ethos of Ian Forrest, the driving bass of Nick Seymour (later superstar of Crowded House); the pop lyricism of Trisha Viggiano and Stephen Charlesworth (later with Kate Cerberano in Im Talking.) Vocalist Lisa Dethridge organized a techno-chic video studio shoot with fellow students, making the band pioneers in the art of music video. Forrest sent a copy of the album to German band Kraftwerk who met with Artificial Organs members when Kraftwerk visited Melbourne in 1981. This meeting confirmed Artificial Organs as talented early exponents in the history of techno-electronica. Former members currently work across the digital arts in fields of music, performance, robotics and information technology. Edition of 400 copies. 180 gram vinyl.

However, like so many other great albums of the era, it soon dropped entirely from the radar due to bad promotion. In fact, it may not have ever been rediscovered at all if guitarist Steve Hillage and keyboardist Dave Stewart had not gone on to be so well known. Hillage would soon become famous for his work in Gong, and Stewart would become a legend of British prog with Egg, Hatfield and the North, National Health, and his work with wife Barbara Gaskin in the 1980s. Contains bonus track from a lacquer of the same period."

Title: String Quartet Describing the Motions of Large Real Bodies - How Can I Tel the Difference?
Format: Double LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $47.00
2002 release. "Double LP reprint of the compact disc by Robert Ashley titled String Quartet Describing the Motions of Large Real Bodies / How can I Tell the Difference? (I & II). String Quartet was composed as the potential orchestra for an opera based on the text of In Sara, Mencken, Christ and Beethoven There Were Men and Women. When the work was composed, in 1972, it was clear that a huge change in electronic instrumentation was just beginning, a change that would involve computers and sound producing devices as yet undreamed of. The piece consists of an electronic orchestra of 42 sound producing modules. The technique of the string quartet is for each player to make a stream of intentional but unpremeditated (that is, random) very short sounds, pulses, somewhat like pitched clicks, but with the formats and overtones of a string instrument (this idea came from the rumor of a performance by Takehisa Kosugi). These sounds go directly to a set of four loudspeakers, but at the same time they are delayed electronically, and those delayed sounds are sent to a series of seven networks of sound producing modules activated by the very brief coincidence of an original sound and a delayed sound. The operation of the networks as a result of the coincidence can, in the theoretical world of electronics, produce almost any sound imaginable. In the performance recorded here few of the technical resources were available. Now, of course, there are computer patching programs that would make the job possible, but complicated. Such are dreams, when technology promises a new world. Sort of like 1492. The hills and mountains separating San Francisco Bay from the Pacific ocean are filled with a labyrinth of endless concrete tunnels constructed by the military in the 1930s in anticipation of the World War II to defend San Francisco Bay from invasion. At the entrance of every tunnel is a huge steel door. When the door is slammed, the reverberation through the labyrinth seems to last forever. It is one of the wonders of the world. Naturally, Robert Ashley tried to record this phenomenon. On the occasion of the recording, just as the reverberation seemed to die away, a motorcyclist, miles away in the tunnels, started coming closer. The effect, which took minutes, was as if the reverberation had been reversed, as if the tape recording was running backwards. A perfect case of coincidence as illusion. In Version One of How Can I Tell the Difference? the composer tried to create the drama of the recording of the reverberation and the motorcyclist, using the String Quartet as an orchestra, in the way intended to be used in the opera. In Version Two of How Can I Tell the Difference? a solo string player using the same playing technique as in the String Quartet opens and closes the sound gates to electronic reverberations and prerecorded sounds running continuously with the performance. This edition comes in a colour gatefold LP cover with new graphic and lay-out. A double LP set with 3 recorded sides (side 1, 3 and 4; side 2 is blank). Edition of 500 copies only." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Oct. 25th, 2001: Merkin Concert Hall, NYC
Format: Double LP
Label: Choose
Country: Germany
Price: $55.00
"Back in 2001, Thomas Buckner organized a series of concerts at Merkin Hall in New York City. The idea was to have a contemporary classic composer inviting another composer, a kind of alter-ego, to perform together. When Robert Ashley, whose concert was considered the peak of the whole series of events, decided to invite his old friend Walter Marchetti, it was immediately clear that there would have been something unforgettable going on. The night of October 25th, 2001, the audience at the Merkin Hall had the privilege of being present at one of the more dense, intimate and breathtaking sonic events in contemporary music history. Sides A and B include the live rendering of two Walter Marchetti sound works previously issued on CD by Alga Marghen. A 25-minute excerpt of Nei Mari del Sud. Musica in Secca and one painful variation from De Musicorum Infelicitate. The performance of those tape pieces was conceived as an action theatre event, the first concert of the legendary Italian composer in the States after more than 30 years! Side C includes the recording of Robert Ashleys Yes, But Is It Edible?, a composition for piano and voice dedicated to Thomas Buckner who performs it with the composer. This 27:30 min long piece is a true masterpiece, with Robert Ashley introducing us to creation and coincidence, space and time, private parts and characters, with direct references to the ONCE group and his friends David Behrman, Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, Blue Gene Tyranny, George Manupelli, as well as Maria Callas and Patsy Cline, Elvis and Lennon, Monteverdi, pop music, Irish and Jewish new-comers Broadway musical parody of America, Lloyd-Weber, Saturday Night Life, Chinese opera, mariachi bands, country music and much more. Side D includes Practical Anarchism, a touching homage that Robert Ashley dedicated to Walter Marchetti. Previously published as a text by Alga Marghen in the booklet of the Antibarbarus CD, this is actually the first time ever that this piece for solo voice, performed by the same Robert Ashley, is made available on record. Also on side D is Musica Per un Bicchiere non Molto Grande, an early ZAJ piece by Walter Marchetti, performed here by Robert Ashley. Edition of 300 copies." - Choose.

Title: Static Crash
Format: LP
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Static Crash is magic, one of the most gorgeous collections of gothic ethereal pop/noise of its kind to rise from the American underground in decades. One could easily believe its origin to be from 1983, or 1993, or even 2013. But its 2003 release found few takers, outside of a small but dedicated local following. At a time when rock and roll was obnoxiously forcing its way back from the morass of pre-millennial digital aimlessness and DJ culture -- and at the same time was being fought on the other side by the glitzy shallowness of electroclash -- Ashrae Fax was finding ways to inject warmth and confidence into a mothballed musical form. Its eight songs take chances that most all had forgotten about, delving into the solitary power of Kate Bush, the esoteric directions of groups like Dif Juz, the Durutti Column, and the brash iconoclasm of prime-era Siouxsie & The Banshees, ballasted by stretches of ambient interlude and ear-damaging chaos.

Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Much ado - okay, a moderate, respectable amount of ado - was made about Ashtabulas debut LP River of Many Dead Fish. A mere side project for Bob Malloy, according to the conventional wisdom, it allowed the remaining members of the Strapping Fieldhands to restock their dwindling supply of owl tonic and to gas up the skiffle barge in the port of limbo. There may well be a kernel of truth in that posit, but now we have a second Ashtabula release, and there hasnt been a collection of new Fieldhands recordings since�? well, the last one. They say owl tonic isnt so easy to get nowadays, and a barge aint exactly a canoe, either. Correct us if were wrong, but we believe it was the legendary 60s imagemaker Jake Witsen who said, "Give me intestinal fortitude over verisimilitude any day, cause I want a band with blood and guts, not a group of bleepin nuts." Good on yer, Jake ol boy, you said a mouthful there. But the Witsenian guts on Possible Smokestacks might better be spelled p-l-u-c-k. Lots of pluck. As with outfits within the Elephant 6 collective, theres a ubiquity about it as well (Brobdignagian in this case, as opposed to E6s Lilliputian, lets set the record straight). Smokestacks takes in everything from the glimmer of 60s psychedelic Britpop (a la the UK Kaleidoscope) to a bizarro-world cross between Remake/Remodel-era Roxy Music and Dub Housing-era Pere Ubu, to the Edgar Broughton Band and Hawkwind (setting ears on fire in a tent on the Glastonbury plains). An appearance by a German chanteuse on one track sways somewhere between Nico and Lotte Lenya (but for gods sake, dont go blabbing to Boyd Rice). This album is, as they are wont to say in Magnet, "all over the place." It might make you cry, it might make you sweat, but itll definitely make you moist. And in these frigid times, kingpin, isnt leaving ones glands to the mercy of people like Bob Malloy what its all about?"

And this is quite definitely the last in the "painted clamshells" series of CDRs (this time they are mostly yellow, fact fans). Sort of a response to a review which described Ash Nav as "obviously Heldon-influenced"...news to me, but I decided to Go For It and prove the reviewer right. But imagine a bunch of early 70s frenchmen playing all of their psychedelic records, all of their Ocora records and all their prog/fusion at once whilst angry drum machines beamed in against their will from an alternate future blast out very mutated hip-hop beats. Apparently Mr. R.Pinhas was an attendee at a Paris Ash Nav gig and is said to have remarked "I thought they only had pop music in England these days". This release may prove him right also. This is also the first Ashtray release to be almost all digitally recorded....and youll be surprised how fucked up it sounds - gawd bless technology for giving us so many options.

"The cover of the latest CD-r from blog faves Ashtray Navigations (this time being Phil Todd solo) sports a noteworthy boast: aside from false starts with the percussion everything else therein is a first take. It is an interesting prospect. Despite being an accomplished improviser, Phils recorded output tends to be the result of much deliberation, overdubbing and editing. The guy puts the hours in and the result is a consistency unique amongst those similarly prolific. The slapdash should take note: no that wont do, be more like Phil instead. Anyway, in keeping with the vibe of the project I decided to review it in one take too. During a lunch break I found an unused basement teaching room in the university where I work, spread my kit across a table – food, pencil, three sheets of A4 paper, mp3 player – pushed the buds deep into my long-suffering ear canals, pressed play and wrote the following. Aside from some false starts on the punctuation, and some reconstruction following the disintegration of my sandwich and resultant beetroot stains, this is also a first take.

bubba omeiser: chimes, bells, calling the fairies to a gathering? A wedding? Getting heavier, maybe a mushroom vision of the forest, maybe the soundtrack to a 1970s documentary about jellyfish. Hang on – here come the space bongos (obviously this release does contain overdubs – presumably Phil means each element was recorded in one take. Some assembly was required)! Now there is an epic swishing hiss – reptiles in sunglasses are eating the wedding party! the awful backlash: ah, the guitar. A super-cool rhythmic shimmer underscores a sky-scraping psyche-rock wig-out. Phils ornithopter flaps lazily over the dunes (at this point I stared at the wall for a minute, lost in the solo. Nearby building work was making the floor vibrate nicely). This is Phil at his most free and, ironically, perhaps at his most accessible. I can imagine anyone whose tastes are guitar-led being won over by this to the shining path of AshNav, Fun ending as one of the hip lizards from earlier croaks along to the dying seconds. spray: Business! Initial bobbling sounds like an interlude in a modernist composition symbolising the rush of urban existence. Picture ballet dancers artfully avoiding each other as they hail cabs, meet their dates, go about a stylised version of city life. Im expecting this to resolve, to clarify but the layers continue to slide over each other, breathless. OK, now percussion is stapling it together and a low end is packing it away. Second movement, change of scene. Now the electrobibble seems like the chittering of nocturnal creatures, the wob-wob of the synth giving the impression of a tropical night that just wont cool. Act three sees the return our reptile friends. As the engine of their super-yacht idles in the background, ready to depart, they enjoy a quayside performance of Miles Davis style vibraphonic space jazz then, ha!, that is it.

Title: Imperfiction
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Anyone who loves "outsider" folk legends from Tom Rapp to Roy Harper or Gary Higgins to Peter Grudzien knows the name of the legendary bard ED ASKEW. His 1968 ESP Record Ask the Unicorn is quite simply one of the eras finest artifacts, full of lilting, prickly, chiming songs of loss, love and escapism-maybe the gay Astral Weeks for the underground. Around the turn of the century, an equally compelling second album surfaced, Little Eyes, where our hero, armed only with tiple (a sort of latin uke/banjo/guitar), laid out more heartbreaking baroque odes, all recorded in a single continuous take! Recorded for ESP in 1970, it never got past the test pressing stage and was eventually lost, until De Stijil came sniffing some thirty years on. In the early 80s, Ed got his hands on a harpsichord and tiple and a simple two-track recorder and laid down some of his tunes hed been carrying around for years. Released only on cassette in miniscule quantities in 1984, Imperfiction contains the same emotionally raw yet wry observations, in a decidedly no-frills sonic setting. Broken glass on the sidewalk outside, nice boys he meets in bars, and the joyous act of songwriting itself are all fair game for subject matter, giving a unique and intimate self-portrait of a truly gifted songwriter. Imperfiction is now available for the first time on vinyl via Galactic Zoo Disk/Drag City, with vintage photos and liners and sound that will transport fans back to the old days of Askew in all of its seemingly transient glory. Fans of Daniel Johnson, early Jonathan Richman, Smog, Palace Brothers and other lo-fi troubadours would be wise to snatch up this limited pressing-as all other GZDisk/Drag City titles have sold out early and often." -Drag City

Title: Rainy Day Song
Format: CD
Label: Spinning Gold
Country: Canada
Price: $13.50
"Rainy Day Song is the first release of new Ed Askew material since Ed Askew/Ask the Unicorn (ESP-Disk, 1968). The scarcity of commercially available Ed Askew albums belies an artist in perpetual bloom -- painter and songwriter poet. After graduating from Yale Art School in 1966, Ed began teaching art in New Haven and shortly thereafter released his eponymous debut (later re-named Ask the Unicorn). Ed Askew recorded a follow up called Little Eyes that ESP-Disk chose, for unknown reasons, not to release (This album was finally issued on CD in 2007 by De Stijl Records). And now forty years have passed since the original ESP-Disk release and Ed Askew has a formidable backlog of unreleased music. Rainy Day Song, his most recent work, was recorded in the summer of 2007 in New York City, where Ed has lived since moving there from New Haven in the 1980s. He says: When I start a song its a kind of virgin situation. There are certain things I do and I have my character like everybody has their character. But I believe on some level that it comes from nothing -- there are certain things you do -- but in a sense: who does it? Lyrically, Askew bears a striking resemblance to Paul Goodman, the mid-20th century New York City poet, novelist, gestalt psychologist, and anarchist social theorist. Like Goodmans poetry, Askews lyrics shift effortlessly from contemplative abstraction to political tirades, from naturalist landscapes to graphic descriptions of urban street life, from childhood vignettes to tales of gay romance-conveyed in language thats at once elegant and conversational. Also like Goodman, Askew displays (in both his lyrics and his music) a stubborn indifference to contemporary fashion. If thats what makes Askews music such a hard sell for current labels and commercial audiences, its also the source of its timelessness. Whether you choose to listen to it now or wait for the next round of reissues forty years from now, this is music that will endure." -David Shirley

Title: Lavender Edition
Format: CD
Label: Pedal
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"The resonance of the name Aso Ai will not immediately cause tidal waves of excitement to leap up and hit foreign shores with a vehement power of overall upheaval and long awaited anticipation. No instinctive prevision whatsoever could gear up music aficionados for what was to come, since Asos debut recordings on the tiny and illustrious Oz Disc label had slipped by unnoticed through the mazes of the net. Aso Ai first appeared on the so-called music circuit around the year 2000 with the release of her debut single Amaihibiki, closely followed the following year by her full length CD Umerumono. Both releases slowly fell into slumber, disappearing into the gasping wounds of total obscurity until the freshly ignited Pedal Records label, led by former White Heaven guitarist Nakamura Souichirou, decided not to let Aso Ais exceptional talent go to waste and set out to conflagrate her sonic isolationism. Upon listening and witnessing Asos music, I could not but be struck by the bare stark nakedness and an almost less is more aesthetic that resonated out of every slow motion-like action she sings into being through her desolate tunes. Desolate as in stripped down of all artificial distractions, intellectual constructivism and violent sonic pollution, Asos musical universe is one of limited notation and well balanced fragile bossa-novelistic psychedelics. She quietly sets out, throughout the entire album, to show a graceful, yet sharp moving floating stride. From the first, almost minimalist approach, the atmospheric angelical quality and utterly erotic naïveté that breaths through her delicate vocals, one can feel a premonition towards an unprecedented relationship she beholds for a lyrical and soft poetic shape that feels like an introverted and at times almost religious affair her music embraces. Like the fragrance of a freshly picked cherry blossom, Aso Ais sonic universe is as fleeting and as fragile but in the mean time strong enough to face the seasonal climate changes the buds gets confronted with. Her whispering trade mark vocalizations are throughout the album backed up with some sparse but accurate and straight-to-the-point instrumentation provided by some of Tokyos finest scenesters around such as ex-White Heaven and Stars front man Ishihara You (who was also responsible for producing this sonic gem), Nakamura Souichirou (engineer of Nagisa Nite, Yura Yura Teikoku, Guitar Wolf, The Stars, etc), and Yura Yura Teikoku and Stars bass player Kamekawa Chiyo. When performing live, Aso gets backed by Ishihara, Nakamura and Kurihara Michio. The overall effect the individual musicians together with Aso evoke is that of a transcendental and arresting listening experience that will make you question the validity of all music you have been exposed to until this present day, rendering most your record collection oblique and utterly useless. That is the power stripped down simplicity and utter beauty evokes. You are warned�?� And if this initial release, which will massage your frontal earlobes to a big extent, is not enough yet, Pedal Records announced that its second release will be The Stars new full length album, which will be due at the end of May 2004. Stay tuned�?�.." - Johan Wellens.

Title: Umeromono Izen
Format: LP
Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $45.00
"Released in collaboration with Pedal Records. Limited edition LP of 250 copies housed in a sturdy and heavy textured jacket. The music of this LP is comprised out of Asos first demo/home recordings dating back to 1997. The material predates her initial "Umeromono" CDs contents. Unlike "Umeromono", the music she slowly breathes into being through her slow-motion like less is more aesthetic on this LP-set sounds even more fragile and desolate than her current recordings. This is partly due to the fact that Aso recorded the whole affair in her bedroom, deploying all the instruments herself and capturing the rudimentary gracefulness of her acid folk escapades directly to tape. The overall atmosphere has a strong low-fi fragrance hovering over it without ever compromising the rich musical texture Aso succeeds in conveying out of her stripped-to-the-bare minimum textural approach. The general result is one of organic and sincere beauty, embodying fragility reminiscent to a dew-covered spiders web. This quality gets even intensified by her soft-poetic angel-voiced whisperings and her fragile, fleeting like husky voice breathing out an erotic naivete that is lyrical as well as introverted, making it in its own humble way nearly a thing of perfection. She is destined to be one of the unsung queens of the female acid folk pantheon and this recording will be one of its Holy Grails. The disc is housed in a beautiful, heavy textured jacket, doing the music justice. Liner notes by Ishihara You (Stars, White Heaven). A beauty to behold and to hear. The record is a one time only limited pressing and will not be reissued on CD or any other format. So acting quickly may be a keyword here. The total pressing quantity is 250 copies, of which 125 copies are destined for the Japanese vinyl fetishist market. The remaining 125 copies are for foreign vinyl and female vocal addicts. These beauties will not be available for a long time, so you better act smoothly and quickly to secure yourself a copy. Extremely XXX limited one time only edition." - Tiliqua.

"Asra is a duo, consisting of Af Ursin and Raymond Dijkstra. Both of these people have by now quite some history in releasing music. Their interest is mainly in releasing vinyl, for whatever obscure reasons, and they both have done a few. Both Af Ursin aswell as Dadaphon (in whatever guise he pops up) have a personal way of creating music. Using an old eight channel reel to reel tape machine and a mixing board, they record densely layered sounds. Rubbing sounds, scratching objects, but also they play a wide variety of instruments, such as wind instruments and violins. Just as they dont like CDs, they also dont like electronica that much. So its a highly analog affair. Its hard to describe what it sounds like. There are traces of old Nurse With Wound (but not as collage like) or the recent minimalist drone masters (Mirror, Ora, Monos), but its less closed. On their collaborative record, they of course do whatever they can do best. The a-side has three tracks (although one is so short its merely an intro), staying close to the recent Af Ursin LP or the Dadaphon 10". Electronisch Samenspel (meaning electronic interplay) is a short track on the b-side (being clueless why they used only one third of the available vinyl) and a rather lo-fi theremin play, I assume by the both of them. Strange to hear them doing electronic music, but its kinda of nice, really. Strange and remotely playing. A very nice record by two lovely boys." - Vital. Highly recommended! Restocked. 2003 release.

Price: $18.00
"Astral Social Club is the current project of Neil Campbell, formerly of the Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof!, The A Band and many more which has given tremendous impact and influences throughout the 2000s to numerous audience and artists. Campbell has been active since the early 80s, and The Wire magazine has said that, along with his friends Richard Youngs and Matthew Bower, he "provided the map co-ordinates for much of what passed for a post-punk UK underground during most of the 80s and 90s". With Astral Social Club, Campbell continues his quest to produce a truly vast 21st century psychedelic music, using alien electronics, overloaded strings, loop disorientation and rhythmic grids often more readily associated with the far end of dance music. "HAPPY HORSE" is a 7-piece, hour-long suite focussing on the more ecstatic, dilated side of ASCs music. Kicking off with a reworked version of the super-limited "Skelp" 7", the propulsive beats and tone float is ceaseless, in the manner of a DJ mix tape from some parallel universe. Sure, there are huge tracts of techno thud underpinning many of the tracks, as on "Horse Cortex" (a distant cousin to "Clarion super-cortex" from the acclaimed ASC/ALog split 12" on fat-cat records), but they dont mind sliding into delerious inaudibility when the free-flying celestial sonics really get into their stride. Although Astral Social Club is largely a solo project, "Happy Horse" includes sonic input from regular ASC collaborators John Clyde-Evans, Phil Smith, Paul Walsh and Stewart Keith." -Happy Prince

Format: LP
Label: Textile
Country: France
Price: $22.00
"Model Town in a field of Mud is the result of a collaboration between Neil Cambell and John Clyde Evans. This album was recorded largely thru the post during Johns year long stay in India. (although the very last few minutes are the duo live in Sheffield right after he returned). This album is a 50/50 collaboration, hopefully the first of many! John Clyde Evans has a lenghty career, even if he did "disappear" for a few years. John was in the band Hood (Domino Recordings) then cut a couple of great solo records, then disapeared, reappearing using his Sikh name of Tirath Singh Nirmala, cutting an LP with Richard Yuongs, then reverting his original name and droping the magnificent " Apetal Thunderfall" CD on us earlier this year!! Neil Campbell is a cornerstone of the UK underground and played in Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof, A Band, with Richard Youngs, Damo Susuki and many many other artists. Despite some esoteric path, Model Town in a field of mud reconfirm John and Neil intentions to blast techno into the Stratosphere" - Textile

Campbells approach as Astral Social Club could be seen as both a continuation and a refutal of his work with Vibracathedral Orchestra - a continuation in that it continues the quest into the unknown stellar regions of improvised drone-based music, and a refutal in its espousal of most of the elemental organic rock modes that made that band so special.

Format: CD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"After a couple years in the underground wilderness, NEIL CAMPBELLs unique ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB returns to VHF with the squelching, restless ambience of Octuplex. 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

Title: Plug Music Ramoon
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Dancing Wayang Records are proud to present the new studio-recorded, full-length album by Neil Campbells Astral Social Club. Featuring two tracks of fearless sonic bliss and two long journeys to a state of sustained ecstasy Plug Music Ramoon was recorded in one day on analogue 2" tape. This limited edition LP comes housed in a gorgeous hand-printed silkscreen sleeve, with insert. Sequenced in chronological order on the LP as the tracks were recorded in the studio, the opener Flamingo Moon takes off into outer space. Its a gentle start to the impending Astral chaos as the rambunctious Punk Rocker / Mug Cracker noisily propels itself and its passengers forwards. This 14-minute showdown is divided into two parts with the loose, drum-led Punk Rocker submerging into the swooping sonics of the Mug Cracker. Side 2 introduces a playful element into the spiral density with percussive sticks and bells providing a tribal backdrop for resonant electronics, keyboard odysseys and some experimental vocal work from helmsman Neil Campbell. After a wild solar adventure, the album culminates in Ramoon Ramoon, a considered and tight improvisation that steers the Club homeward. Whilst Club member John Clyde-Evanss laptop contributions provide much of the backbone groove of the album, Stewart Keith adds light and shade on a variety of keyboards and toys. But its Campbells dense guitars that thicken the very stem of these four tracks and leads his Astral Social Club to conjure up his dreams and visions. Neil Campbell is a stalwart of the UK experimental music scene who began making music in the early 1980s. Originally a member of loose improvisational collective A-Band, he established himself more firmly in the 90s as a founding member of Vibracathedral Orchestra. Campbell utilizes guitars, electronics, vocals and laptop generated and manipulated sounds in his freeform improvisations. In 2005, he embarked on his solo project Astral Social Club often drawing on the talents of kindred spirits. Stewart Keith is a long-time friend and collaborator of Neil Campbell and one of the main members of Nottinghams the A-Band playing free drone and high-energy rock music and championing an un-tutored, elemental and almost primitive approach to music making. John Clyde-Evans, aka Tirath Singh Nirmala, has played with artists such as Richard Youngs and Vibracathedral Orchestra contributing computer generated sounds, electronics and violin.

Following a series of instantly sold-out limited edition CDRs, Campbell agreed to select, edit and remix a collection of tracks for wider release from the groups rather exclusive catalog. VHF100 is a dense mega-mix of continually peaking sound-flow. Working a tricky hybrid ground between contemporary UK teams like Sunroof! and Vibracathedral Orchestra, and the influence of Kompakt-style pulsating electronic "techno," Astral Social Clubs music shimmers and throbs in a truly psychedelic manner. 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.

Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"Welcome to Astral Social Club: your MC is British avant-garde guru Neil Campbell. Put on your dancing shoes, because this is hallucinating, intergalactic trance music of the highest order and its about to take off. The up-beat, cosmic vibes of Campbells first terrestrial voyages aboard the drone/krautrock ship were already very impressive, but with Astral Social Club he sets sail for the stars. Campbell manages to create something entirely unprecedented on this album: trance music as played in the clubs at the other side of the solar system. Or perhaps were listening to the intoxicating smoke signals from extra-terrestrial pirate stations? While listeners may recognise the earthy kraut rock rhythms, the compelling, minimalist drones and a few catchy pop melodies, Astral Social Music is entirely of itself. The moment at which youve become completely immersed in a hypnotic groove is the moment the Club decides to let loose one of the awkward beats or melodies it has in its arsenal. This soundtrack for the ultimate trip surges, pounds, vibrates, swings, pulsates and sucks on your subconscious; its organic music breathes in and out like a shrinking and expanding universe. Leave all nocturnal troubles of the moonlit world behind you and turn your gaze to the sunrays emanating from the Astral Social Club. Reverberating voices and melodies from outer space and rhythmic pulsar fly past at rapid speed only to be swallowed up in a black hole on their way to another dimension. You Einsteins and Hawkings of this world, hold on to one another for the Big Bang Dance festival of your dreams. Sieben Stax is packed in the beautiful envelope packaging, designed and handprinted by Jason Dodge & Christine Roland, a one-off pressing of 250 copies." -Bottrop-Boy

"Two of Europes finest collide on a 12" 45 RPM platter loosely inspired by the club single. On Wet Wheel/Hot Wheel, Neil Campbell of Astral Social Club succumbs to the heartbeat throb of house but tops the bass with a frenetic squall of darting alien melodies. On cursory listen, the elements congeal into honest-to-god body music, but the track is riddled with stutters and gaps that the flooded synapses fill with aural afterimages. On the reverse, Jan Anderzen of Tomutonttu buries the dance influence, retaining only the genres neon shimmer and linear logic. Syvat Svyät overflows with cuckoo loops that briefly cohere into musical shapes before casting off, replaced by an ecstatic march of manic squiggles. One must focus to follow the train of musical thought, but Anderzens humor and intuition reward the effort. Issued in an edition of 300 hand-stamped, 150-gram lavender LPs in matte sleeves screened with consummate skills by Alan Sherry of Siwa." -Tipped Bowler

If ever told, theyll be immediately elevated to cult status considering their personal backgrounds and live shows (besides the fact that anything remotely French, sounds wonderful in North America nowadays). Astreinte is a five to nine members collective delivering a totally deafening sonic wall assault directly inspired by Japanese legends such as Hijokaidan or CCCC. The group mainly consists of hippies, crust punks, industrialists, garage rockers and a jazz fanatic. Dwelling in and around Pau, in the south west of France, near the Pyrenees and the Spanish border, their very scarce and violent live appearances have been greeted with comparatively aggressive and emotionally charged reactions. Cest pourquoi il importe... is their debut LP as a nine piece (vocals, guitar, bass, trumpet, drums, 2 x synths, electronics). Edition of 190 copies, with insert." -Nashazphone

"Reissue of this long lost masterpice from 1981 originally released by Bulge / Genius records. The Astronauts were (and are, after close to 30 years and a history of lineup shifts only bested by The Fall) the definitive psych-punk ensemble, though even that title doesnt do em justice. Their sound culminates the post 77 punk dabblings of head forbears Twink (his Do it 77 single and The Rings I wanna be free platter), Nik Turner (the outstanding Inner City Unit and the punkier late 70s bits of Hawkwind) and Daevid Allens planet Gong (with fellow acid-punkers Here and Now) all woven in with an earlier Robert Wyatt / mellow candle-y psych folk vibe... While not sounding like any of those things at all. Get it? The albums range is gigantic: from dissonant punk a la Fall (Everything stops for baby), to epic progressive folk (Protest song, Baby sings folk songs), ditties (Sod us), hard-rock (The Traveller), pop (How green was my valley), garage / surf (Still Talking), industrial (How long is a piece of string), and set to arrangements that employ synths, flute, saxophone, and strays into progressive or even free-form / psychedelic sections. The icing on the cake is the mature statement of the lyrics, a cynical and bitter exploration of the lives of simple men, miles away from the generic horror / punk overtones that permeated most of alternative albums at the time." - La Vida Es Un Mus.

It includes the four tracks from the self titled EP from 1979 and the four tracks from "Pranksters in Revolt" EP from 1980 on Bulge records. These tracks show us perhaps the most straight forward side of The Astronauts. Tagged at the end of each side youll find one of the tracks recorded under the Restricted Hours on the rare split EP with The Syndicate for the Stevenege RAR back in 1979. Swinging from proto punk to hard rock and from echo folk to epic synth jams - these tracks feature the amazing Wilkins lyrics of inner city criticism, self doubt and despair.

The record comes with both a 11"x22" insert and a 4 X A5 insert with some rare pictures and magazine clippings as well as the lyrics for all the songs." - La Vida Es Un Mus. Highly recommended!!

Although Sasha has now released two full-length LPs and a 7�, she is not as well known for her music. Sasha is not a porn actress turned musician like a Traci Lords, Sasha has always made music. Sasha has been recording music since she was 15 years old and was influenced from the beginning by groups like Throbbing Gristle and KMFDM. She takes an experimental approach to making music in the form of sound collages which bring to mind artists such as Nurse With Wound and Coil. She has worked with Current 93 lending her vocals to �Aleph at Hallucinatory Mountain�. �A Cassette Tape Culture� is the second recording by aTelecine to be released by Pendu Sound Recordings, a NYC-based independent record label run by artist/curator, Todd Brooks. This 36-minute full-length LP continues where their �aVigillant Carpark� 7� on Pendu Sound left off and expands outward toward longer, more developed soundscapes rich in textures made from tape loops, synth-washes and sparse vocals. aTelecine originally began as a duo with Sasha Grey and Pablo St. Francis, but has since expanded into a 4-piece adding new members, Anthony Djuan and Ian C." - Pendu.

"After releasing their debut LP on Dais in the summer of 2010, Sasha Grey, Ian Cinnamon and Pablo St. Francis grouped together under the banner of aTelecine once again, this time composing the recent soundtrack to the English/German film Entkopplung . The film itself is a highly esoteric science fiction labyrinth in the shape of Phillip K. Dick meets William s Burroughs. “The surreality of certain dreams, or the intense attraction of a perplexity of new impressions in real life.” Recorded and mixed in a marathon four day live to tape session using the mammoth 226 page script and the existing 30 minutes of completed footage as a scoring template, the music is dark, paranoid and claustrophobic echoing the themes in the film. This electronic score should be heard as a separate but yet equal vehicle to the film, an experience the listener shouldn’t worry about it altering the later cinematic encounter. Sonically it’s mission is complex and none vocal, purely enriching the narrative…and melodically creating all the necessary in-between nightmare illustrations.

For folks whove heard the bands noisier previous work — for instance A Cassette Tape Culture — the spacey, smeary, drifting and droning "ambient death dub" will come as a surprise. Ditto folks still hung-up on the fact that the electro-industrial quartet features Sasha Grey on voice, synth, tape loops, guitar, etc: This isnt some easygoing vanity project. What we have is a patient, expansive collection, one that nods to interests in Coil, Psychic TV, Throbbing Gristle, Nurse With Wound, and Lustmord, among other things. Importantly, The Falcon drifts into its own hypnotic, weirdly insular and esoteric territories, ultimately sounding like nothing Ive heard all year." - Brandon Stosuy.
