Artist: M AX NOI MACH
Title: In The Shadows
Format: LP
Label: White Denim
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"M AX NOI MACH is Philadelphia-based artist, poet and musician ROB FRANCISCO. As M Ax Noi Mach, Francisco channels his most personal experiences, desires and paranoia into a foreboding world of night, chasing the listener into a maze of back alleys and city tunnels. Harsh club beats mingle with power-electronic squall, convulsing like a Baltimore club deep within the seventh ring of Hell. Combined with Franciscos menacing vocals, its a singular statement within the world of noise. Through these nine tracks, we are reminded of artists as varied as Intrinsic Action, Atari Teenage Riot, DJ Assault, Mammal, German Shepherds, Schleimer K, Brainbombs, and Macronympha, but M Ax Noi Mach is its own beast entirely." -White Denim

Title: One Deep
Format: 10"
Label: Ozonokids
Country: Spain
Price: $14.00
"A gap between Rap/Club Music, Noise, Power-Electronics and Stand-up Comedy. Influenced by the likes of Dj Screw, Baltimore Club, Puerto Rican Dancehall music and the South Philadelphia city urban decay. Over 20 minutes of pure, filthy harsh dance-hole mayhem. The cover is a five inks silk-screened light blue cardboard wrapped up in a plastic bag with insert. Art by: Robert Francisco." -Ozonokids

Title: Split
Format: 7"
Label: Ozonokids
Country: Spain
Price: $8.00
"Split between M Ax Noi Mach (bringing his heavy fuzz beats out, slowing them down to the core. Pretty "industrial" i must say) and Unchained (originally Knifestorm).His songs involve guitar lines over harsh and semi-melodic tones making his voice run thru an internal feedback that effects all the tones, sometimes being unrecognizable as a human voice. This incredible split brings out a 50% harsh 50% psychedelic variable feedback attack. Art by: Nate Davis / Robert Francisco." -Ozonokids

Title: Neuro Habitat
Format: LP
Label: Urashima
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Reissue of the private LP, issued in an edition of 300 copies in 1982 and titled in original Mörder Unter Uns/Neuro Habitat , considered with Regel one of the Maurizio Bianchis most representative works , Neuro Habitat is finally reissued for the first time in vinyl and remastered under the supervision of the Milanese artist. Side A "Morder Unter Uns" made of puzzled motifs and effects is a dark, sinister mantra to oppressive musical experiences. The piece finishes in an industry of molecular, bloody like loops. Side B "Neuro Habitat" is much more abstract, including ghostly electronic harmonies, gloomy echoing noises and more...a very charged cerebral universe. Extreme drones and noises, abundant textural disturbances: M.B.s at his creative peak! The record has been pressed on 140 gr black vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve (with inside polyethylene plastic) and comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve with the same layout of original sleeve, limited to 199 copies w/insert in luxury 160 gr ivory paper and A4 text Entrance for a punishment by M.B (1982 circa). First 50 copies comes with 30x30 extra insert with artwork by Maurizio Bianchi." - Urashima.

Title: Regel
Format: LP
Label: Urashima
Country: Italy
Price: $30.00
"Reissue of the private LP, issued in an edition of 300 copies in 1982, considered one of the Maurizio Bianchis most representative works , Regel is finally reissued for the first time in vinyl and remastered under the supervision of the Milanese artist. The record consists of two untitled tracks. Mostly track one is made up of manipulated noises with some synthesizer or theremin phrases added for detail and contrast. The second track is a bit more focused, with less noise, more recognizable melodic content and less invasive loops. The music is unlinear and effortlessly multilayered and the sound focuses on texture rather than structure. Here you can see M.B.s early phase as a sick, cancerous organism eating itself out. The record has been pressed on 140 gr red vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve (with inside polyethylene plastic) and comes in a deluxe black silkscreen on red cardboard sleeve with the same layout of original sleeve, limited to 199 copies w/insert in luxury 160 gr ivory paper." - Urashima.




Artist: M.E.S.H.
Title: Scythians EP
Format: 12"
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
“M.E.S.H. presents his debut Pan EP, Scythians. M.E.S.H is a frequent collaborator with contemporary artist Aleksandra Domanovic, and has exchanged remixes with Arca and Fatima Al Qadiri. "Scythians" introduces the textural depth of Foley blades and draining sewers to his distinctive combination of synthetic sheen and abstract breaks. "Interdictor" combines staggered sub kicks and crunching metallic textures with wavering chords over a staggered rhythm. On "Captivated," 808 kicks and an ominous voice punctuate hypnotic washes of noise and hi-hats. "Imperial Sewers" frames synthetic voices and growling pads within a majestic up-tempo hip-hop track. In the beatless "Glassel Finisher," metallic, resonant scratches cut through the air.” - Pan.

Artist: M2
Title: At Lands Edge
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"M2 is an East Coast-based duo comprised of two of the legendary Miller brothers, namely Roger and Ben. They have previously appeared together in such bizarrely protean ensembles as Sproto Layer and Destroy All Monsters, but they are probably best known for their work in autonomous formulations. Ben, most recently with the Glenn Branca Ensemble, Roger with Mission Of Burma (and all who sail with them). The music on M2s debut LP, however, is far from any of the rock-related moves with which theyve associated in the past. Both have serious bonafides in experimental/improvised sound, of course, but these take a new leap with At Lands Edge. Roger is playing heavily prepared piano -- something he has been obsessed with for many years. And Ben is handling an electric guitar with more modifications than anyone can easily count. The eight pieces they have created for At Lands Edge are entirely improvisational, but their sophistication and organization belies their purely aleatory roots. Indeed, the textures they create for their music buggers the very notion of piano/guitar interplay, substituting a shifting array of percussive and electronic field signals that recalls the smaller-format work of Italian improvisational units such as MEV and Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza. An LP of pure wonder, At Lands Edge represents a beautiful challenge for adventurous listeners. Exquisitely recorded by guitarist Michael Bierylo, the album is a monster of form confusion, and we cant wait to catch the duo on tour. Dig it. Edition of 300." -Feeding Tube.

Country: Sweden
Price: $25.00
"Its a handmade art edition of 133 copies on vinyl, with paste-on art on recycled paper, hand-stamped labels and an insert. Debut record for this free folk trio collaboration between Laura Naukkarinen (from Lau Nau) and Kristian Holmgren and Matti Bye (from Vinter), featuring out-of-tune meandering, slow paced walking-tunes, and folk songs of a tradition invented on the spot, with delicate female vocals over plucked, bent, bowed and hammered strings: from the fragile lyricism of "Saa puu" or "Pimeyden viimeinen säde," over the insect battle grounds and lonely wanderlust of "Pitkä matka," to the eerie, desolate wastelands of "Ishavets sång," where lonely, ghost-like voices drift over the frozen bass strings of the dampened piano, sounding "...as if already drifting under the ice," as someone said of the poet Heym..." -Tjärnen.

Artist: MAC BLACKOUT
Title: Dont Let Your Love Die
Format: 7"
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"Sacred Bones presents a new solo single from ex-FUNCTIONAL BLACKOUTS and current DAILY VOID man MAC BLACKOUT that sounds that could have been made either in the year 1980 or 2980. "Dont Let Your Love Die" a driving synth driven tune that almost goes pop-albeit in a very Alexander Robotnik kind of way-sounds like it might as well have been recorded on an NES console. On the B-side "Sometimes" is a dirge like midtempo song that goes beyond the obvious comparisons to the Helios Creed/Damon Edge orbit and at times recalls Sacred Bones labelmate Gary War and even Macs other project, Daily Void." - Sacred Bones.

Title: Vergezichten
Format: 10"
Label: Alien Transistor
Country: Germany
Price: $14.00
"Rutger Zuydervelt aka Machinefabriek is a master of self-made sound and time-stretching, sensitively handling organic recordings and samples on countless releases, and regards preset sounds in an organ or a cheap keyboard as a tonal find, as a part of the cacophony of everyday life. These bontempi-rhythms plus the computer-stretched sounds of saxophone (Espen Reinertsen) and voice (Mariska Baars) are the base elements of "Vergezicht 1" and "Vergezicht 2." It is stunning how Zuydervelt manages to produce depth and meditative calm with this supposedly soul-less material." -Alien Transistor.

Title: Brain Damage in Oklahoma City
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Brain Damage in Oklahoma City is the second installment in the Siltbreeze/Quakebasket series of music by poet/mystic/shaman Angus Maclise. Culled from the archives of Mr. Tony Conrad, this volume (covering the years 1967-70) highlights MacLises unique and intricate drumming style. Cembalum, bongos, hand drum, barrel congas -- all are majestically thumpednbumped for maximum orgasmic sensory satisfaction. Comprised of eight tracks, the acme of this collection is the two large ensemble pieces, Dreamweapon Benefit for the Oklahoma City Police Dept. parts 1 & 2, featuring Angus (barrel conga), Hetty MacLise (tampura), the poet Jackson Maclow (recorders and voice), Henry Flynt (song flute and voice) and Tony Conrad (limp string). These tracks, recorded in May of 1968, are the apex of maximalist loft style psychedelic improvisation. Conrads illuminating, occasionally hilarious liner notes set up the narrative of this volume and offering a brief glimpse back into the mind-scrambling fracas that was NYC, USA, Earth 1968. Along with more gorgeous, brain-warping Invasion-style sleeve art, included in the CD booklet is a reproduction of the poster for the Dreamweapon Benefit, confirmation in black and white that for four nights in May, 1968, Wooster Street Cinematheque was definitely one witchy place to be." - Siltbreeze.

Title: Invasion of the Thunderbolt Pagoda
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The late percussionist and poet Angus Maclise was pure 60s free spirit all the way. A founding member of the Velvet Underground (who quit as soon as he found out they were being paid to play their first gig), Maclises collaborators and compadres read like a Whos Who for the Halana generation: LaMonte Young, Marian Zazeela, Terry Riley, Tony Conrad, Henry Flynt, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, Gerard Malanga and Ira Cohen. His intricate, India-influenced drumming propelled any number of tranced-out jams in New Yorks lofts of the era (a Milford Graves for the psychedelic set, if you will). Though he was meticulous about his recording, very little of Maclises music has ever been made available. The vaults have been opened, and Invasion is the first authorized collection of Maclises work to appear, with other volumes to follow. The 45-minute opening track, St. Marks Epiphany, provides an incredible glimpse of Maclises music -- his unstoppable cross-rhythms, his wife Hetties droning organ and tamboura, and the crazed echoing flute and vocals from an ensemble known as the Mutant Repetoire Company, whose cacophony is rather like an unholy marriage between Amon Düül 1 & the Taj Mahal Travellers. Part of this piece was used as the soundtrack for Invasion of The Thunderbolt Pagoda (from which the CDs photos are taken), the masterful psychedelic film by Ira Cohen, photographer of Spirits Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus and John McLaughlins Devotion -- this is also the complete version of The Joyous Lake -- released long ago in excerpt form on a flexidisc with an issue of Aspen magazine. Also in this first volume is a wild piece for shortwave radios from one of Maclises India excursions, as well as the Sufi trance of Heavenly Blue Pt.4&5 and the communal free jam of Blastitude. Invasion. . closes beautifully with the delerious celtic lulabye Humming in the Night Skull, featuring Maclise on chimes with harmonium and guitar. What else is there to say? This is a remarkable and long overdue celebration of an overlooked and necessary figure of the New York avant garde." - Siltbreeze.

Title: New York Electronic, 1965
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
“Black vinyl repress. Sub Rosa presents another release as a part of their early electronic series. Drone-based experiments from Angus MacLise (notably with Tony Conrad extremely present on the album, and John Cale), and purely electronic compositions -- a path (almost) nobody knew MacLise had explored. Miraculously salvaged by Gerard Malanga, these archives provided a new perspective on the artists whole body of work and considerably expanded his artistic palette. And so Sub Rosa is able to present a whole records worth of MacLises early electronic music. Angus MacLise, born March 4, 1938 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was a percussionist, composer, poet, and calligrapher. He was a member of La Monte Youngs Theater Of Eternal Music with John Cale, Tony Conrad, Marian Zazeela and sometimes Terry Riley. He contributed to the early Fluxus newspaper V Tre, edited by George Brecht and George Maciunas, and was also an early member of The Velvet Underground, having been brought into the group by flatmate John Cale when they were living at 56 Ludlow Street in Manhattan. MacLise played bongos and hand-drums during 1965 with the first incarnation of The Velvet Underground. Although the band regularly extemporized soundtracks to underground films during this era (The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda by Ira Cohen, Chumlum by Ron Rice), MacLise never officially recorded with them. Later in the 1960s, Angus and his wife Hetty traveled around between Vancouver, Paris, Greece and India, finally settling in Nepal. They also had a son, Ossian Kennard MacLise, who was recognized by Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, the 16th Karmapa, as a reincarnation of a Tibetan saint, or tulku, and at age four became a Buddhist monk. MacLise died of hypoglycemia and pulmonary tuberculosis in Kathmandu in 1979, aged 41. He recorded a vast amount of music that went largely unreleased until 1999. These recordings, produced between the mid-60s and the late-70s, consist of tribal trance workouts, spoken-word, poetry, drones and electronics, as well as many collaborations with his wife Hetty. In 2008, Hetty MacLise bequeathed a collection of her husbands tapes to the Yale Collection of American Literature.” - Sub Rosa.

Title: Mad Curry
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"Founded in Belgium in 1970 with a remarkable line-up for a rock band: sax, organ, bass, drums and vocals - no guitar!, Mad Curry caught the attention of manager & enterpreneur Louis de Vries (the man who had arranged the very first Pink Floyd gig in Belgium) and soon debuted with the "Song for Cathreen" / "Antwerp" 45. "Antwerp" has become a club favourite ever since due to its danceable freakbeat psych rhythm.
Shortly after, the Mad Curry album was released on the Pirate label, characterized by repeated time signatures that give a progressive feeling. Sax and organ bring a specific jazzy element in the performance and the unique high bluesy voice of Viona Westra is very recognizable. All this supported by a solid rhythm team which adds a psychedelic rock base to the mix. The album was housed in a beautiful, very original fold-out cover made by Jef Winnepenninckx. If you are into the sounds of UK bands like Affinity or Ghost do not miss this splendid classic of the Belgian underground scene.
First ever vinyl reissue, the Wah Wah edition is made with the help of Louis de Vries & the band, and comes with the bonus PS 7" of "Song For Cathleen" / "Antwerp", a reproduction of the gorgeous six panel fold-out sleeve and an insert with liner notes by Herman Permentier and cool unseen photos.

Title: Mad Music
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Like something out of pulp science fiction, the record known as Mad Music, Inc appeared in the Boston area in the late 70s without track titles, credits or contact information. Beautifully packaged, the record exuded a mystery so mysterious as to be entirely unclear if the creator(s) even realized how odd the whole thing was. To be clear -- this is not one of those phony discoveries that seem to show up with increasing regularity these days. Collectors have known about Mad Music for years, but the very few who know the story arent talking. Play the record, and everything becomes more unclear still. . . . What is this music, and who is it for? Is it some mutant strain of new age, jazz, a soundtrack? Would it explain anything to know that the jam at the end of side one is called Gospel Disco? Does it help if we disclose that this lushly arranged album features professionals and amateurs working together? Is it a put-on? Or was there some greater purpose involved? The world may never know. For the fine folks who actually buy records, randomly selected copies come with one of a kind inserts -- authentic 35-year-old documents from the Mad Music archives -- an underwater loudspeaker catalog, a photo from the recording studio, an academic clipping entitled Cerebral Dominance in Musicians and Nonmusicians. But even if you buy the entire run and put it all together, this is one mystery you may never solve. We can promise you this -- youve never experienced anything like Mad Music, Inc." -Drag City.

Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"We have here the new 7inch single from Mad Nanna. Mad Nanna have quietly built up an impressive discography in a relatively short span with releases on Goaty, Eggy, Wormwood Grasshopper, and their own amazing Alberts Basement. The A side is an anthem for the ages (by Nanna standards). It lurches and stumbles, makes strides,waltzes and wobbles but manages to stay in a relatively straight line. The B side charges headlong through the muck and rides an early 90s Port Chalmers groove. Artwork is by one Antony Riddell, a Melbourne fixture, artist, author, member of the Weave Movement Theatre and one of the the mad geniuses responsible for the under-appreciated Volvox." - Quemada.

Side B ("The Nectarine Tree") is a wayward / zoned / honest basement transmission that roams around in a purely human way, pummeling everything else near the margins. MAD NANNA is not a put-on.

"The legendary late 60s West Coast band, Mad River. The release includes a soft-cover book and 12" five-track EP pressed on 180 gram vinyl, featuring previously-unissued music by the band, in a limited edition run of 500 copies. Mad River formed at Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio in 1965 and inspired what was happening in San Francisco moved to Berkeley in early 1967 just in time for the Summer of Love. During their brief time together they released a now highly-sought-after 7" EP and two albums for Capitol Records. The Shagrat release is a substantial addition to their catalogue. Housed in the same sleeve as the vinyl 12", the 12" x 12" 36 page, full color, mini-coffee table book features a 26,000 word history of the band written by Ugly Things journalist David Biasotti, revealing many unknown stories and details about this legendary, Berkeley-based quintet. The book is profusely illustrated with many photos and other memorabilia which have never been seen before, and tells the bands remarkable history, how they were involved in the emergent long hair counter culture and the movement against the Vietnam War (then at its height), their relationship with the Diggers and the Hells Angels, the Beat Poets and most interesting of all their friendship and collaboration with the late writer Richard Brautigan. Acting as a kind of soundtrack to the book, the 12" record contains five cuts that have never been officially released before, including the four numbers the band cut in Dayton Ohio in early 1967 as a demo before they re-located to California. These show that whilst the band was influenced by the likes of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Country Joe & the Fish (whom drummer Greg Dewey eventually joined and played Woodstock with) and their friends the Youngbloods, they were also pretty fully formed before they set off for the West Coast, as the embryonic Windchimes included here testifies. It was former Youngblood Jerry Corbitt who produced the other long-lost gem from 69, Jersey Slooin this set -- showing that away from the long flowing psychedelic numbers, the band could also write concise, accessible, two-minute rockers (even if the lyrics were completely whacked out!)."-Shagrat.

"Its staggering to think that this is the first album from MAD SCENE since Merge released Chinese Honey way back in 1995. But thats a fact. Not that the band has been inactive on the live front-far from it. When you have a group as diverse as HAMISH KILGOUR (THE CLEAN), LISA SIEGEL (Vegetarian), STEVE THORNTON (Go-To Guy), GEORGIA HUBLEY (YO LA TENGO), GARY OLSEN (Straight Shooter), JOSH FELDMAN (Professional Athlete), CASSIE TUNICK, DANNY TUNICK (Same Last Names!) and Brian Turner (WFMU Music Director), things can get sidelined when it comes to the studio. But eventually things fell into place and for their fourth long-player, the band enlisted SONIC BOOM to produce and mix, then thrust the finished product into the waiting hands of the Siltbreeze label. Blip is a masterful melange of sounds, mixing a range of influences such as nascent Flying Nun chug, Television Personalities DIY psych, shambling Pastels-like rockers and Sarah label indie-pop nuggets. The palette of aural perfection here offers something for everyone. And yeah, it may have taken 17 years to get here, but you cant say it isnt worth the wait.

"Finally a reissue of one of the great lost Grails of the NYC freak underground! Trading hands for $3-4000 on the rare occasions it is offered, Madrigal has grown into a legend among fans of psychedelic drone music. Heres what the Acid Archives has to say: "...A rather amazing do-it-yourself descent into the murkiest depths of the early 1970s underground. Its two guys sitting in what sounds like a boiler room, equipped with a drum machine, an electric guitar & bass and some oscillators, hotwiring themselves into the lysergic flow of the Now. The music drones and cavorts while incomprehensible screams and dialogue lurk in the background, as heard through a locked door. The atmosphere is as thick as in a nightmare..." But Madrigals strongest achievement may be the seamless shift from the harrowing visions of machinery and faceless suffering on side 1 into a string of dark, haunting folk-rock numbers on side 2, a transition as natural as if these were simply the two sides of the same unclassifiable coin. Pioneering at the time and still unique today, vague parallels could be made to Suicide, the Patron Saints and Velvet Undergrounds third LP, but first and last Madrigal can only be understood on its own. Re-mastered for superior sound, retaining the original artwork and pressed in a limited edition, 180 gram virgin vinyl, housed in a deluxe case with a wrapped tip-on-sleeve, and including an insert with in-depth liner notes." - Lysergia.

Title: Teenage Sex Therapist
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Owen Maercks Teenage Sex Therapist LP is one of the forgotten twisted pop masterpieces of the 20th century. Owen had been in Monster Island with Henry Kaiser, who proposed he do a solo album of his songs. Henry had moved back west by this time, so Owen went out and recorded this album there. Henry produced, and added amazing horn parts by Jon Oswald, Larry Ochs and John Gruntfest. The album was mixed, pressed and distributed exclusively to radio stations, record labels and the like, in the hopes of getting Owen signed. The music didnt fit any extant pigeonhole, however, so no deal was in the offing. About the only note of its passing was made by an A&R guy at Elektra, who swiped the arrangement (and lyric rearrangement) of "Little Black Egg" (originally by the Nightcrawlers) for use by his protégées, The Cars. Well, fuck them. Teenage Sex Therapist is ripe with jaw-drop moves. Flashes of Eno, Beefheart, Lou Reed, the Bonzos, and various of Owens other obsessions, fight each other for air-time. And everyone goes away a winner. If this one doesnt make your teeth wiggle, you need a new jaw." --Byron Coley; LP comes with a download card.

"Magic Lantern came into being at the mid-point of the decade, sparked into existence by a simultaneous period of musical discovery for Philip French, William Giacchi, and Cameron Stallones. Inspired by the psychedelic approach to musical tone and structure in various eras and genres of rock (not at all excluding Germany and Japan in the 70s), the three realized they ought to make use of the new creative tools theyd stumbled upon, and began jamming the summer away in twin poles of Long Beach and Whittier, CA. Over the course of a year, they recorded every jam and compiled a full-lengths worth of home-studio demos which later became their self-released CD-R. At the same time, each member was developing solo and side projects to channel parallel universes of sound. A year after their first jam together, Magic Lantern decided to make the leap to playing live and recruited good friends and like-minded musicians Chip Knechtel and Gavin Fort to be their marathon rhythm section. The jams from their CD-R were used as the blueprints for the band to develop a raw, stripped-down sound that emphasized hypnotic rhythms and improvised guitar duels. After being invited to play at the Tee Pee Records showcase Manifest Destiny in August of 07, th Lantern kept up a steady diet of shows in L.A. and Long Beach for the next year, earning a local following and two highly limited tapes on Not Not Fun Records. Through the spring of 08, they began writing new material as a band and developing the new songs live. In the summer, they recorded these jams with sound wizard Bobb Bruno, which led to the Not Not Fun LP High Beams that September. At this point, the band had fully emerged from transition into a shared creative vision of five musicians, each possessing a singular voice, all united in the common goal to engage both mind and body through good vibrations." -Woodsist.

The box is in an edition of 500 numbered copies. Five slim-line jewel case CDs packed in a heavy-duty and gorgeous feeling box; with booklet of liner notes (English and Japanese language), photos. Extremely well done overall." - FE. "The 5 CDs set named Hapmoniym was created between 1972 and 1975 in Makos private studio, while he was working on his second album, Super Record. Hapmoniym is Makos best piece recorded in these years. Its composed of a few magnificent ideas and sounds and recorded in a very free atmosphere with friends and colleague musicians. The music Hapmoniym is offering consists of progressive rock, psychedelic, avant-garde & experimental sounds. Hapmoniym box set number one is the first part of a trilogy of pure experiments that has mostly bnever been published. The 5 CDs contained in this box were released in a very limited edition in 1993, then becoming unavailable.

"New UK reissue of the second (and all-time best) Mako album, originally issued by Japanese Polydor in 1975; there have been a couple Japanese CD reissues of this in the past, which are no longer available. One of the key documents of Japanese underground psychedelic music, presented in truly sublime fashion. Although MPM went on to record 20+ more records after this one, he would never exceed the spatial exuberance of Super Record. From the liner notes: "Makos music possesses a certain strange kind of texture. Its certainly is what they call rock, but contains elements that we cant describe so succinctly. It clearly goes beyond the various genres of music, and while full of them all, it sends forth a fierce glow. This Super Record shows Mako looking down upon the earth from above, wandering through Alaska and Siberia, the Near East, Okinawa, and South America. Adding to the variety of folk music of India, Turkey, and Russia, his mandolin or Taisho koto, and especially his marvelously performed guitar, expressing fully the odor of the soil and mankinds universality."

"Super Record, the second of Magical Power Makos 20-plus recordings, originally released in 1975, is considered by those that know to be his finest, combining as it does strong elements of Japanese folk music alongside innovative psychedelic sounds and broad musical vistas of extraordinary imagination. Mako was born in Shuzeni Izu in Japan in 1956, and he began his musical education at a young age, making his first public performance in 1973 at the age of 16 with his band Genge in the famous Shibuya Club. Based on these impressive public performances, the precocious Mako was invited to play with one of Japans foremost contemporary composers, Toru Takemitsu, playing alongside the composer on three film scores, Inheritance For The Future, Petrified Forest and Himiko. The response to his performances was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, elevating Mako to almost god-like status in his native country. Makos music has often baffled pundits keen to place him in a particular musical slot. As one perplexed scribe opined "Makos music possesses a certain strange kind of texture. It is certainly what they call rock, but contains elements we cant describe so succinctly. It clearly goes beyond the various genres of music and while full of them all, it sends forth a fierce glow."

The response to his performances was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, elevating Mako to almost god-like status in his native country. Makos music has often baffled pundits keen to place him in a particular musical slot. As one perplexed scribe opined "Makos music possesses a certain strange kind of texture. It is certainly what they call rock, but contains elements we cant describe so succinctly. It clearly goes beyond the various genres of music and while full of them all, it sends forth a fierce glow." Another critic wrote: "Adding to the variety of folk music from India, Turkey and Russia, his mandolin or Taisho koto, and especially his marvellously-performed guitar, expresses fully the odor of the soil and mankinds universality." This numbered, limited edition has been digitally-remastered and housed in an LP replica sleeve." -Phoenix

"Balf Quarry is the an all-new album-length piece of the puzzle from MAGIK MARKERS. Long known for their shattering live appearances, Magik Markers put together really hot albums too -like Balf Quarry. Working with engineer SCOTT COLBURN (Sun City Girls, Animal Collective, Sir Richard Bishop), Magik Markers have captured a lot of different moods and twitches on Balf Quarry. Tremoring mid-rhythms form the body, with a couple showers of hardcore, high flying free-duo style and several clinking music boxes of woe as well. On slower tunes, the mass of brooding guitar tone generated is ELISAs signature, a carving all of her own. Fills, licks and other touches move the songs a broken arms length away from a fundament of chaos and horror." - Drag City

"Oh, Magik Markers -- you dirty fuckers! You look like a reasonably intelligent young woman and man -- perhaps a bit intense, but who isnt in these end times? Then the needle drops and youre amok, dusting us from the git-go, wild-eyed in a china shop where stop keeps meaning more. Ah, if it were only music -- but it would appear youve rethought that too. And would it kill you to crack a smile? When an album begins with a song called Risperdal, one should assume a mind-and-body-slamming forty-five minutes or so are underway. And one wouldnt be wrong, dickhead. Sure, Balf Quarry has moody space in its soul, melodies whether stretched over rock, ululating rhythm, chimes n piano and/or wah-wah. Regardless of the configuration, Elisa Ambrogio and Pete Nolan are locked together, beating it out, listening to feeling the sound of their earth quake. And slicing through all the atmosphere, Elisas voice is a spear of light, splashes of mud, an acid purple flashback. The Balf Quarry libretto reads like an inner monologue of some poor bastard from The Stand: desperate and vengeful musings from the head of a witness to and survivor of an apocalypse, in a world they never made, dreaming helplessly of the demons out west. Safe before their life sets in might mean hope in this landscape. The worlds not broken -- people ruin it every time. Working with engineer Scott Colburn (Sun City Girls, Animal Collective, Sir Richard Bishop), Magik Markers have captured a lot of different moods and twitches on Balf Quarry. Tremoring mid-rhythms form the body, with a couple showers of hardcore, high flying free-duo style and several clinking music boxes of woe as well. On slower tunes, the mass of brooding guitar tone generated is Elisas signature, a carving all of her own. Fills, licks and other touches move the songs a broken arms length away from a fundament of chaos and horror. When colors actually match and you have grey music for grey days, its great -- but what about grey music for cherry red lava days, or rainbow sounds arcing over six months of darkness? Anything goes -- and just your luck, Magik Markers have brought anything with them on Balf Quarry -- a multicolored projectile of vomit you can sing along to! If psychosis is your thing, Balf Quarry is like a jukebox just for you. The only thing its missing is a brick attached to the CD to facilitate throwing it through your window! No, were not talking about you, asshole. This is the royal you -- the you of all Magik Markers fandom, the you of anyone with ears and the guts for this shit. Wot fun!

"When confronted with an example of magnificence in nature, such as a waterfall, Jane Goodall reported that the chimpanzees she observed were captivated, as if in awe of the beauty of the world. On BOSS, the Magik Markers have tried to capture the chimps awe. A formality and restraint the Markers have never exerted on their previously recorded material is present on BOSS. Now the Markers are Jainists, with their mouths masked so as to not inhale even one tiny insect, here pursuing the killer gentle with a vengeance. Recorded in the cavernous dark of Echo Canyon West, with producer Lee Ranaldo working the boards like a diviner, BOSS documents the Markers with a previously unheard fidelity and orchestration. Idiosyncratic song structure and melodies interspersed with a destructive drum stomp are reminiscent of the early electrified blues of Junior Kimbrough, or the black hole rhythms of Kousokuya. Mixing a gentle vulnerability with a winded egomania, the Markers have always had a musical tunnel vision; BOSS is that vision made manifest. The tug of war the Markers enact, the way they are fully prepared to start yanking their world apart as they find themselves losing their place in, makes moot possibilities of greatness or mediocrity. It makes them unapologetic soothsayers with their ears pressed to the ground, waiting for footsteps. With Peter Nolan, we finally hear what Lou Reed would have sounded like had he sallied with the drums instead of getting seduced by the easy praise of front man status. Like Rashid Ali squeezed into the Teutonic leather pants of Faust, Nolan drums like there are hell hounds at his heels but he just cant be bothered. Here both laconic and frenzied, Nolans drumming arms reach out like an octopus: tickling the ivories, humming the organ and blasting taps on some kind of endtime trumpet. As a pianist, Nolan reminds us that the piano is a percussive, beating out the whoomp of some old war dance, a bare foot-fall rhythm of fighters to battle and the heavy hands of a whiskey burlesque in the afternoon. Nolan is easy to underestimate, but finally, here is high fidelity record of the strange soul of one of Americas most natural and quizzical musical minds." -Ecstatic Peace

Format: Double CD
Label: EM/Meditations
Country: Japan
Price: $27.00
"EM Records and Meditations, from Kyoto, are pleased to announce the reissue, on double vinyl and double CD, of two classic 1969 and 1970 LP releases from Indian bamboo flute legend T.R. Mahalingam, known as "Mali" to his fans. Born in Tamil Nadu in 1925, Mali was a true original whose musicality revolutionized Indian flute playing, elevating the instrument from its folk origins to the heights of art music, imbued with spirituality, without losing vitality or succumbing to the blandishments of fame. Mali was a beguiling combination of virtuosity, spirituality and rebelliousness, and his music reflects this, and much more. He was a legend and a master. Malis virtuosity was innate; he picked up the flute, against his fathers wishes, at the age of five, and gave his first performance at seven, to great acclaim, eventually playing with other legendary musicians including the revered violinist Palghat Mani Iyer. Mahalingam developed tremendous control of the instrument, able to sustain single notes for over 40 seconds, able to play any music after hearing it only once, but he used his virtuosity to serve the music, pursuing the Carnatic ideal of the voice as the purest form of music. He sang with the flute. In contrast with the mechanically-keyed Western flute, the Indian bamboo flute allows the player to directly touch the finger holes, allowing access to a wider range of tones and contributing to this vocal quality. Mali added an extra hole to his flutes, increasing his expressivity, and performed other modifications to bring him closer to the ideal of the human voice. Malis technical innovations also included the development of new fingering techniques and the introduction of a unique hand positioning, the "parrot clutch." This relentless search allowed the flute, for the first time, to be elevated to the highest ranks of Carnatic music. Mali was spiritually driven. He had a life-changing religious experience at the age of sixteen, lending a sense of depth and introversion to his music. He claimed to have seen god many times while playing, and was known to cut concert appearances short in such instances. He was also said to have been able to communicate with birds through his music. Legendary in India, Mahalingam was very influential in Europe and North America also, especially among composers including La Monte Young and Terry Riley. Olivier Messiaen, another bird lover, was keenly interested in Malis music, and one may hear this influence in a number of Messiaens pieces. So, a legend. A master. And beyond words. Please listen to Mali." -EM/Meditations

Emperors of error, indeed. Their very special talent has been recognized by a slew of underground labels across the world and garnered them famous friends and fans aplenty including The Pastels. But until now, the very earliest roots of the band have remained shrouded in misty tendrils of mystery. Kunitachi Kibun delves deep into the bands beginnings, presenting two previously unreleased gigs, including their first show from December 1984 when they played in a legendary triple header with High Rise and Kosokuya at the Kid Airaku Hall in Tokyo. The second show from six months later includes an appearance by the late alto saxophonist Masami Shinoda. Both soar with idiot-savant genius, Toris truly distinctive guitar and vocals creating their own idiot-savant networks of logic with the rest of the group.

"Maher Shalal Hash Baz is the oddly-named band for Japanese cult figure Tori Kudo and his wife Reiko (the name is apparently a Hebrew biblical phrase that Tori translates as ⿿be quick if you mean to steal something⿝). Since the late 1970s, Tori has been a pioneering figure in Japanese punk, post-punk and avant-garde circles, beginning with bands such as GuysnDolls, Cock CNell, Noise and Tokyo Suicide (a cover band dedicated to New York synth-punk pioneers Suicide). Tori formed Maher Shalal Hash Baz in the mid 80s with neighbours who could not play any instruments, and for the better part of 20 years has been pursuing a single-minded vision of music as simple, spontaneous and unpredictable. The bands always changing lineup of anywhere from three to thirty people features mostly untrained musicians playing music often shown to them on the day of its performance, expressing the innate beauty of failure as much as of success. The band began releasing records in 1989, but did not come to worldwide attention until a decade later, when their marvelously ambitious triple album Return Visit To Rock Mass was released. MSHB were invited to tour outside of Japan for the first time. In 1999, when UK label Geographic released From A Summer To Another Summer, a compilation of Maher recordings. Soon the band were touring the US and Europe regularly, and Geographic released their most recent album Blues Du Jour in 2003. Live Aoiheya January 2003 documents an entire brief performance by this unique band, incidentally the first Maher show that Chapter boss Guy Blackman saw after moving to live in Japan in 2002 (he returned to Melbourne in 2004). It captures the band in a variety of guises unusual even for them, including an extended abstract instrumental, songs based on conversations between band members, passages by Japanese composers, vocal relays and a Brahms Waltz. In the EPs 26 minutes Maher Shalal Hash Baz manage to cover more ground than most bands do in their whole career, all the while maintaining a spirit and idiosyncracy that is idenitifiably their own." - Chapter Music.

In Maher Shalal Hash Baz, he took the heterophonic voicings, the deliberately fluctuating rhythmic mis-steps and the non-unison unison so characteristic of Japanese traditional music and re-applied them to idiot savant mini-hymns arranged for electric guitar, euphonium, ocarina and organ. Its a music that exists in a unique world of its own, alternately donning and shedding the armor of rock and jazz. Another major draw is the presence of the late Masami Shinoda on alto sax. Shinoda was an important, though largely unsung, figure in the history of the Tokyo underground during the 80s and 90s, showing up in all manner of groups from punk iconoclasts Jagatara and Pungo, to his own experiments with chindon marching advertising bands. He spent a few years in Maher in the 80s and this DVD captures the innocent joy and rapturous invention he brought to their music. 24 tracks, 75 minutes.

Title: Some Cocktail Suggestions
Format: LP
Label: Fractal
Country: France
Price: $26.00
"Brand new and third album by the 70s French underground free-rock cult band Mahogany Brain. Some Cocktail Suggestions (March 2005) is the logical and inevitable prolongation of the first two albums, With (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger) (December 1970 - released in 1971) and Smooth Sick Lights (June 1972 - released in 1977), all in all the third shutter of a trilogy and which could be entitled: Mahogany Brain or how to play Russian roulette in the artificial paradises. Thirty-five years for an unexplainable trilogy. However, if one symbolically looks at the first album on Futura as the injection of drugs (the true original record cover was a photograph showing an arm with a syringe and following the stop to publish the famous stereotype for reason of censure of the time, the group chose an entirely black cover as a mourning). The second on Pôle (with the title wink in Sister Ray) would be rather the action as if the track headlight suggests which opens the album Green Winter of Revolvers which is the soundtrack of the crazy short film of Michel Bulteau Main Line. Mahogany Brain always developed a music radical, unforeseeable, hard, voluntarily unfinished, and with this album, they continue the adventure even further: decomposition of the music, recomposition of the juxtaposed voices, artistic blur, collages, mad guitars, all very amalgamated in a magma broken rocknroll. Mahogany Brain was created during the summer 1970, and was composed by two central personalities, the alter ego Michel Bulteau (leader and founder of the group) and Patrick Geoffrois (the man without whom Mahogany Brain could never have existed). Writer, film maker, Bulteau also carried out five albums in solo (whose Rinçures on Fractal in 1999) hes the last of the electric poets and his meeting with Geoffrois was also electric - Bulteau created a rock band but it is Geoffrois which created the dynamics of the group. Geoffrois was a sharp sectional view, and he recall a little the revolted and destroying spirit of a certain Peter Laughner (Rocket From The Tombs), he will join later the group of James Chance & the Contortions in New York at the end of the 70s or he will sow the discord besides! Two complementary strong energies and spontaneousness, the process was engaged. Mahogany Brain is an atypical group in the Parisian underground, they play with their tripes and as with their veins, it is an experience out of the limit, not-conventional, with only one concert in all their history, and probably the most subversive formation as there was to see in France! Some Cocktail Suggestions is incontestably matter dangerous? To taste with great whiskeys." - Fractal. Great record!

Title: Mainliner Sonic
Format: LP
Label: Assommer
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Psychedelic Solid Free Attack Group, Mainliner, were and will always be the worlds most powerful Speed-Freak psychedelic rock outfit. One of many concept groups containing both Nanjo Asahito(High Rise) and Kawabata Makoto(Acid Mothers Temple), Mainliner was a Psychedelic Power-Trio using 60s punk formula to create a solid foundation for "motor psycho" guitar-solo exploration, Ultra Cool echo vocals, and beyond free-jazz drum energy. Typical of Nanjos production, Mainliner is the quintessential blown-out Fuzz band, using crushing distortion across the entire mix, killing fidelity but greatly enhancing the intensity and liveness of the listening experience. Mainliner Sonic, the bands 3rd album, is the most sonically destroyed of all. Released on CD by Charnel in 1997, Assommer is proud to resurrect this long out of print noise relic onto 12" clear vinyl. Limited to 500 copies" - Assommer.

Title: Mellow Out
Format: LP
Label: Riot Season
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"Mellow Out is, perhaps, THE classic Japanese underground album. Since it was first released in 1996 on the now-defunct Charnel Music label, its legend has grown and grown, and is still talked about by lovers of all things loud, noisy, and Japanese as the definitive Japanese noise-rock statement. Upon release it was instantly dubbed "the pinnacle of achievement for guitar-driven, brain-crushing madness," and with good reason. Rarely has an album contained such fierce/brutal battering, and speaker-shredding, in-the-red levels. Mainliner were a Japanese trio consisting of Asahito Nanjo (High Rise), Makoto Kawabata(Acid Mothers Temple), and Hajime Koizumi. Originally released on CD back in 96 on Charnel, the pressing quickly disappeared and had been unavailable until Riot Season re-released it in 2003 in a limited CD and vinyl run, both of which sold out quickly. With the 2013 rebirth of Mainliner, now dubbed Kawabata Makotos Mainliner, the time felt right for a re-release of the much sought-after vinyl. So here it is, on the back of excellent press on their Revelation Space (REPOSE 036CD/LP) comeback album. This vinyl pressing is limited to 500 copies for the world and comes in two (250 of each) translucent colored vinyl editions. The music has been remastered and the sleeve artwork has been tweaked from the original vinyl pressing, too -- now with 350gsm card sleeve with metallic silver ink print." - Riot Season. Highly recommended!

Title: 4
Format: CD
Label: Twisted Village
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"And here they are, spiralling thru their own universe but still occasionally sending a missive back down to earth. This one was recorded summer 03, after an intense period of touring (which also resulted in the Major Stars/Comets On Fire live split LP) and just before an intense period of reflection (read: inactivity). Somewhere during the latter they realized they had made a record, and finally we bring it to you. Calls for increased fidelity have not fallen on deaf ears: 4 brings them to the world of 24-track recording for the first time, finally getting their studio sound close to their live onslaught. Musically they continue to hit all points a little harder each time, with open-stringed folk melodies getting pummeled on the Who/Cream/Hendrix anvil til you think modal and heavy have always coexisted. Their best yet? You bet. Should they go deaf, it was all for you." - Twisted Village.

Title: Black Road EP
Format: 7"
Label: Twisted Village
Country: USA
Price: $4.50
"The story from where we left off: Major Stars play their most recent tour of the USA in May of 2003, return in June to make their definitive studio record (Major Stars 4), and then head to NYC a week later to record the Live In Europa split LP with Comets On Fire. All good so far. They unexpectedly lay low for for the next eighteen months, losing longtime drummer Dave Lynch along the way and ending up with an empty bassman spot when Tom Leonard joins Kate Village and Wayne Rogers in the guitar frontline. But then Major Stars mark two starts to come together. Casey Keenan (drummer-turned-guitarist of local pop heros Carlisle Sound) is roped into resuming his place behind the drumkit. Dave Dougan, already a veteran of the band as bass understudy (he was the unfamiliar figure on stage at their Terrastock 02 performance), returns to claim the position permanently. The new sextet is completed by the arrival of lead singer Sandra Barrett, formerly of local art-punk legends LA Drugs. By the time Major Stars 4finally appears to universal acclaim in April 2005, the new band is awake and pummeling the locals with renewed fervor. The future: a new LP is due to appear in the fall 2005, and Major Stars will be playing select east coast dates with Japanese psych titans Miminokoto and Uptight this October 2005. But why wait the summer in silence? Heres a two-track taster of heavy things to come." - Twisted VIllage.

Title: Decibels of Gratitude
Format: CD
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Eighth full-length studio album by this long running Massachusetts ensemble. What to say about a band who continuously claims Otis Rush and Buddy Guy as its primary influences, but usually finds their records filed in the noise/experimental bin? Any mention of Major Stars tends to send some scurrying for the most obscure psychedelic references, but one need look no further than the Who or Cream to find the primary ingredients of melodic songwriting combined with an over-the-top instrumental assault. As a few noticed, the title of their last album Return to Form wasnt entirely intended to be tongue-in-cheek. Their music seems to be more psychedelic era than psychedelic, and they themselves like to just be thought of as a Rock group (early 70s capitalization intact). But there has always been something different about their arrangement of common influences compared to their contemporaries, and over the past fifteen years they have developed a loyal base of followers who seem to quite like the way they put things together. So Major Stars continue to put it together, like on this one: Decibels of Gratitude, from them, to you." - Important

Title: Return to Form
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"When youve got a love for music, theres no time to spare. The band called Major Stars all got other gigs that take them from place to place without room to converse much. Thats okay, because theyre about playing music, not small talkin! So whats been going on around the practice space then? Major Stars have a new one that might lay it on you all at once like a plank of solid stone, and theyre calling it Return to Form. Starting with a mid-fight schoolyard threat like Better Stay Down (what, no exclamation point?), Major Stars do definitely seem to be returning to somewhere on this new new album, maybe even perhaps somewhere adolescent where the rock and roll was never better? But really, titling the whole damn thing Return to Form has some humor in it. Mirror/Messenger wasnt out of form; all Major Stars records have been a part of a vision and even if some shit said he or she (probably he) didnt like it, that doesnt really call for a response title on the next album. We read it like this: its you whos returning to form! Major Stars atomized you to fucking bits on the last record and only now are you returning to a fully formed entity. And here Major Stars are to blow you to pieces again. Youre fucked up. Return to Forms got eight pieces, all heavy rocks, a few of them come with power jams. Theres also a few just under three minutes, but distinguished by riffage that lifts em up. The guitars trio of Wayne Rogers, Kate Village and Tom Leonard is into their third full album as such, allowing them to have fused into a wall of distorto with a myriad of identities but singular purpose. Behind their ubiquitous combination signal, the drums trample with pummelous authority. Still, they cant help but sound a bit crushed by the din, glorious din. This is Major Stars signature rock of the easties -- more likened to the sounds of Motorpsycho than any of that psych-rock these days! Again, this is organic growth, home territory. Could it be that the space you know is better than the space you dont know? Major Stars got answer, and its Return to Form." - Drag City.

Title: Rock Revival,The
Format: CD
Label: Twisted Village
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Major Stars, men (and woman) who have made many records, up the pile one more with The Rock Revival. Guitarists Wayne & Kate come to Major Stars straight from Magic Hour, whose quick ascent from snarly West Coast-influenced rock band to all instrumental thugs brought many a tear To helpless Galaxie 500 fans. Bassist Tom Leonard has been at one time or another a member of every non-Magic Twisted Village ensemble, and Dave laid down the big beat in Vermonster. Now that these four have reconvened, they are taking their LOUD polystructural ROCK to the people. The Rock Revival consists of four songs. The first, Rock Revival Theme, is a purely free bit of tape captured at one of their bi-weekly recording sessions. On follows, a lovely little tune that then gets masterfully deconstructed for 13+ minutes. Strange Reaction is the token short song that sets up the epic Deep End, their live instrumental tour-de-force. Throughout the disc they jump in and out of structure and freedom like no other post-Isle Of Wight rock ensemble can. And theyre that loud. Really. Go see them fuck up the upcoming Terrastock in SF."-Twisted Village.

Title: Space/Time
Format: CD
Label: Twisted Village
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Space/Time is the Major Stars second full length attempt to explode the boundaries of Rock-with-a-capital-R. Side one features two songs with pickin and singin: Apples To Grapes is a moody folk rock number that gets blown apart in a hurry & subjected to several improvisational deconstructions in the course of its 14+ minutes, and Runout is done up short n pretty to set you up for the all-instrumental Side Two. Getting Air From A Stone is a riff heavy cruncher, while Dream Of The Accidental Bird follows its brief opening revolving door with a massive & exhilarating one chord jam thatll twist your insides just right. The CD adds one track from their now out-of-print debut 12" Rock Sounds Of People -- the pounding Its A Blessing, Brother, I Cannot Lie, a song so relentlessly single minded that the band was asked daily who the hell it was a cover of (Wayne, in fact, wrote it...in far less time than it took to play it). Major Stars aim to take higher-key improvisational wizardry and clobber you on the head with it while simultaneously caressing your mind. Space/Time does just that."-Twisted Village.

"Back? Indeed. Technically speaking this is the Major Stars fifth album in their nine year career, but its also the debut full length by the new expanded lineup. Kate Village and Wayne Rogers still hold down double guitar duty, but now are joined in the frontline guitar assault by ex-bassist Tom Leonard. Casey Keenan and Dave Dougan are the scrappy new rhythm section, and Sandra Barrett their bat-head biting lead singer. Heavier in number and in sound, the 6-strong Stars have already made waves with last years debut single Black Road and a handful of piledriving shows (one of which was cited as one of Time Out NYs Best of 2005). This LP and the forthcoming US tour seal the deal. Get under or stay clear." - Twisted Village. CD also available.

Cloaked within these terse, stream-of-consciousness descriptions of rare psych, private pressings, and other incredibly strange LPs, stand Paul Majors revolutionary ideas on the necessity of the human element in art and the purpose of music, as well as highly entertaining observations on the lifestyles of the 60s, 70s, and 80s." - Johan Kugelberg (from "Enjoy the Experience: Homemade Records 1958-1992").

Various catalogs, spanning the late 80s to 2000-ish, all recently pulled from storage, mostly in vg+/nm, "non-perused" condition. A few have slight yellowing, minor creasing, and a couple are even postmarked returns. First come, first served. No Xtabays available. Numbers are assigned more or less arbitrarily and do not indicate chronological order (this is not a complete run) - there are very few dates and no "issue numbers", just foggy memories, so were selling by front cover images with prices based on quantity available. And keep in mind, due to the nature of what these are, there will obviously be overlapping content.
These are key documents in the evolution of underground record collecting from arguably the most influential collector/tracker/dealer, bookending the rise and fall of the "infamous" "psych mafia", who set the rules (i.e. prices) prior to the ebay/youtube/blog playfield-leveling of the last 10+ years..

Maki was probably one of the strongest voices of Japanese rock and is featured here doing her finest Grace Slick impression. Lots of brutal, non-stop wailing guitar but some mellow, bluesy psychedelic rock numbers, too. Maki went on to form her own band, Oz, but this is the collaboration for which she will be best remembered. Highly recommended. Features the original LP cover. Digitally remastered." - Phoenix.

Across the two tracks on this LP, Kawabata seamlessly uses acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bouzouki, sarangi, tambura, organ, hurdy-gurdy, electronics, field recording, and his voice to create a stunning soundscape of hazy summer days with cascading repetitive acoustic guitars, swirling drones, channeled vocals. White Summer of Love Dreamer comes housed in a deluxe heavyweight tip on old style jacket adorned in photography by Joe Blanchard, and is pressed on heavyweight virgin vinyl. Limited to approx. 500 copies." -Blackest Rainbow

Price: $18.00
"One of the most celebrated Japanese underground bands have returned. It may have taken over 12 years, but Kawabata Makoto, guitar guru and head honcho in Acid Mothers Temple, has finally decided to get his celebrated "psychedelic solid free attack group" back together. Joining original Mainliner members Kawabata Makoto (motorpsycho guitar) and Koji Shimura (drums) is new recruit Kawabe Taigen (bass/vocals) and the trio still kick up one hell of a sonic racket. Confusion surrounds the exact details of the recording, but they seem to date from December 2011, and from Kawabatas mountain-top temple studio-cum-home. The man himself, as always, is shying away from sharing too many of the magick details about the Mainliner rebirth. And the stark, minimal black-with-gold sleeve keeps the mystery intact, apart from the grainy band photo on the rear. All said, Revelation Space is a comeback statement of intent. And its firmly in the same in-the-red/raw camp as the original trios classic Mellow Out. From the initial speaker-shaking feedback burst of opener "Revelation Space," right through to the closing 20-minute epic "New Sun" (which showcases Taigens otherworldly howl perfectly) there is no let-up in the brutal delivery. This will no doubt delight those Mainliner diehards who never thought theyd see the day again, and all those with a love of guitar howls and punishing feedback levels, but always underpinned by some righteous grooves." -Riot Season.

Malaria were an all-female art-wave group from Berlin, with connections to Die Haut, Einsturzende, Nina Hagen, Static, etc. A seminal early 80s document. "Contagious diseases, uncertain modes of transmission: Malaria evolved from Mania D., a trio that had already gained a following even without music through their style and artwork. When they expanded into a quintet, they not only retained the first two letters, recurring in medieval, mask, magister artium and mama, they also kept a world of signifiers: heat, illness, fever, ill-defined states. At the time, the beat and the saxophone, which signalled the continuity of both bands, could only be comprehended through inevitable misunderstandings and other contemporary beats and sounds. And -- like an italicised letter -- they incarnated the promise contained in the title: elusive funk, undeveloped jazz, an unresolved and strained insistence on a difference for which no words existed at the time, and certainly no music that one could put a name to." -Diedrich Diederichsen

Title: Triola ou Symphonie pour moi-meme
Format: LP
Label: Recollection GRM
Country: Austria
Price: $23.00
"Recollection GRM presents two electroacoustic works by Croatian composer Ivo Malec. Triola (1978): "This piece marked my return to the studio after several years of absence, a return, which for unknown reasons, needed to be part of a rather ambitious project -- a strictly personal idea. This is how my mind slowly turned towards the design of a musical narrative meant to stand for a relearning of the trade, the temptation to use purely electronic material so as change it into something other than itself, a wide range of form(s) and, when possible, a work, if not a musical piece. The title, Triola (triplet), was chosen to emphasize these three movements, each with their own title and which, just like the three equal values of the triplet, sustain a basic unit through interference. This is quite symbolic, as is the alternative title: the symphony for myself is not only named so because I wanted to offer myself something -- which I did -- but perhaps and above all, because I had a score to settle with myself. One could even say that the piece is autobiographical. We could do it but we do not need to: that is not the question." Bizarra (1972): "In order to understand this piece, it has always been possible to follow two paths, quite different if not divergent. The first one relies on imagery whose roots I would gladly trace back to Lautréamonts deserted swamps and emanations and to which I would add boiling lands, wet forests, volcanic landscapes, and all kinds of entrails. The other path is that of the realities of a studio where, like a craftsman, the composer manipulates, stretches and releases with his fingers a (magnetic) tape, facing the ears of a (magnetic) head, trying to find the narrow door for the real sound to pass through. The rest is mere work, stewardship. How can one bring these two distant paths together? It is indeed necessary, since the second one precedes the first one, while the first one transcends the second one." -Ivo Malec; Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, October 2012.

Artist: MALKUTH
Title: Hathir Sakta
Format: LP
Label: Kelippah
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Simply put, Malkuth are a Leviathan; rising from the West, to lay waste to the Eastern lands—fierce and spiteful, having been awakened from centuries of contemplative slumber. In comparison to their two full-lengths on Hospital Productions, Hathir Sakta (and its accompanying disc on Prison Tatt Records, Tamahprabha, the set originally intended as one double LP) finds Malkuth in relative or even greater form, this material having been simmered to perfection, its ferocity seasoned to epic proportion—and as always, guitar-guitar-drums—no bass to tether it, "define" it or in any way hem it in. Szwed and Muranos guitars tentacle one another—dozens of possessing riffs, split in all the right places by ice shards of trebly melody—angular, baroque and dissonant, as if Morton Feldman were somehow meeting black metal halfway; his studied, contemplative maturity juiced up on a gift-cask of USBM-tinged Kaddish wine and energy drinks, and Mr. Muranos experimental projects (Decimus, K-Salvatore, Key of Shame et al.), having evolved similarly during the interval, inform these Malkuth tracks in the most apropos and satisfying of ways. Matt Heyners roiling drum kit ties it all up in twine, complementing Muranos growl with snare hits and tom workouts like small-arms fire.  

Malkuth are of a rare breed within the pantheon of black metal, in that their material is both energizing (similar to the way of all bands who chose to ride the Darkthrone / Abruptum artery from the primordial Scandinavian explosion) and meditative / brooding, offering "head" and "hard" in equivalent doses. After spending many hours of deep listening to their material, as well as hosting them on my WFMU radio program during the bridge between their Hospital releases and these newer ones, I can say with surety that this LP and its companion are indeed Malkuths finest hour, such that "well worth the wait" becomes a descriptive understatement.   Hathir Sakta requires your immersion, for the listeners full envelopment to be achieved; that said, youll undoubtedly pick up on the incredible energy of these recordings even if only half-listening, and when youre ready, the awe-inspiring, novelistic quality of Hathir Sakta will reveal itself fully and enrapture the listener in its cavernous terror and ecstasy." - Wm.

Title: More Time - Hits & Variations 1968-1970
Format: CD
Label: Anoema
Country: Finland
Price: $16.00
"Anoema Recordings is proud to present a complete collection of sound works by the influential Finnish artist J.O.Mallander. (This CD) collects two sought-after vinyl EPs Extended Play and Decompositions (the only Finnish entries in BROKEN MUSIC catalog), and a previously unreleased piece. J.O.Mallander began his artistic activities in 1960s within the blooming Finnish Underground movement, taking part, amongst other things, in the notorious music-performance collective SPERM. He has since assumed a multitude of roles within the world of art, operating as an artist, critic, writer, gallerist, and curator. Through his international connections he became a singular node of the FLUXUS network in Finland. Extended Play, released in 1968, was his debut as an artist. It is simultaneously an intriguing aural ready-made, a mantra-like tape piece, and a commentary echoing the Finnish cultural climate of the day. It displays in torturing detail the drama surrounding the presidential elections in 1962 and 1968. These pieces have haunted the Finnish popular consciousness for decades, and probably caused more complex reactions than any other Finnish sound work. In 1968 Mallander opted for life in the more internationally inclined Stockholm. Among other activities he composed a mind-boggling plunderphonic collage In Reality at the prestigious premises of EMS for Text-Sound Festival held at Fylkingen. And two years after Extended Play, in 1970, it was time to confuse the Finnish audience again. Mallander issued his second (and so far the last) music release Decompositions on the legendary LOVE Records. Applying scratching, looping, and other manipulations on records he created a hilariously energizing work and pre-dated the methods and attitudes of contemporary popular musics. More Time - Hits & Variations 1968-1970 comes packed in the original cover designs and features extensive liner notes by Leif Elggren. The times they are not a-changin." - Anoema Recordings. Mallander is also featured on the amazing "Arktinen Hysteria: Suomi-avantgarden Esipuutarhureita" CD comp issued a few years back on Love Records. Highly recommended!

"If youve seen mammatus clouds in person, you probably noticed the way those massive formations hang heavy like wilting and bulbous gray-blue sacs, bubbling from heaven towards us. Curiously, as monstrous as they look, these gentle giants are not portents of a storm; they cradle the sky, high above where they belong. How can something so heavy float? If youve seen MAMMATUS the band in concert, you probably noticed how visual their sound is. Guitarist NICHOLAS EMMERT sports a one-piece full-body flight-suit, bassist CHRIS FREELS dons a space cape, and drummer AARON EMMERT steers the ship, staring straight ahead with flashing laser eyewear. The homespun wizard-cum-trippy-dad-at-a-campfire look that theyve adopted softens the blow of the heavy aural trickery afoot. Heady Mental is the perfect title for the third Mammatus album, for it rests heavily in the moldy caverns of heavy metal history, but doesnt get too comfortable before revealing its true colors. This is music for flight, music for the sky, and music for the things that lie beyond. These men are searching for the source through sound. Repetitions of themes with variants spread over four separate songs that act as a whole. Heady Mental functions as a soundtrack to the Mammatus Brain: Heavy / Airy, Earth / Sky, Man / Creator, Complete and Grokd. Limited pressing of 500 copies with digital download." -Spiritual Pajamas.

"Excellent Swordfight" is a continuation of the same story told in the debuts epic "Dragon of the Deep." "Pierce the Darkness" explores being a light in a dark world. "The Changing Wind" is a pipe-led psychedelic folk tune that could have been sited by Ghosts Second Time Around and the shanga vibes of the forest in the Autumn. It unfurls into the title track which encapsulates the massive fury of the ocean. For fans of similar Holy Mountain artists Om, Lesbian, or Residual Echoes." - VHF.

"Originally released in 1971, this album is an intense and bombastic hybrid between heavy fuzz acid guitar, instinctive free rock improvisations and some lyrical, classical influenced interludes/fragments. Mammut played in an impressive and convincing manner their conception of an psychedelic rock opera. For that each title includes the name Mammut. The opening track Bird Mammut is a groovy, percussive, crazy psychedelic affair featuring an avalanche of drums, trippy organs, bluesy e-guitar and wistful flute passages. Classical Mammut delivers a short piano interlude, a pleasant melodic moment. Mammut Ecstasy is a fuzzy heavy psychedelic composition with furious rhythms, an efficient bass guitar leading theme and some nice keyboard moves. Foot Machine Mammut alternates a bluesy pop song with free guitar jams accompanied by Hammond organ. Perhaps parts of the first Embryo album are comparable to this. Nähgarn Mammut" is their attempt to be more lyrical and melodic, while the album closes with 14 minutes of Mammut Opera, which show Mammut at their best. Dark sounds with hints of Amon Düül II, heavy blues rock with all sorts of strange, ethnic and gothic touches combined in their music. Altough the band themselves quoted Deep Purple in rock as a major influence, their spirit was purely Krautrock. Their sole album is a legendary rarity. Comes with 1 bonus track, comprehensive insert, digitally remastered. A classic! Don´t miss it!" -Long Hair

"Recorded by Kid Millions (Oneida) over a weekend after seeing the Fireworks Ensembles performance of Ulrich Kriegers transcription of Metal Machine Music, Man Forever is the maelstrom on the surface of a river. Kid Millions writes: "A few months ago I went to see Fireworks Ensemble perform Metal Machine Music, I read the liner notes for the show, listened to the original record and learned how the piece was originally recorded. During the performance I was inspired to record an album right away. A conversation Id had a year or so ago with Brian Chase (from the YYYs) about just intonation tuning with drums popped into my head and I visualized a monolithic recording that would utilize the rich tonality of carefully tuned acoustic drums, played powerfully and multi-tracked at different speeds onto the Ocropolis (Oneidas Brooklyn Studio) 16 track 1" tape machine. I asked Brian Chase to come to the studio and help me tune my drums so I could capture my ambition for the piece. Richard Hoffman (Sightings) added some bass to the final mix. The tempo is something like 180BPM. The piece moves fast at an almost imperceptible rhythm. It feels overwhelming and fluctuates constantly. Turn it up!" -Kid Millions

Behind it ceiling fans actively seek out shit piles to fling into the brackish waft of a slaughterhouse dance floor where corpulent slabs of nameless meat careen off their hooks in a mockery of modern dance. Technotronic hot flashes floss the slippery keyboard runs of a synthesized marimba with food poisoning recalling the histrionic hand clapping and mellifluous tinsel pulling of The Flying Lizards. During a sentimental reprieve an overworked farm hand ceases his ploughing and looks up to a horizon riddled with plush clouds and mops his brow with a dirty handkerchief. Its been a long hot day and its time to do the pump rectilinear the air we breathe.

"M&S is the duo of Jeff Witscher (Rene Hell, Secret Abuse, etc) and Daren Ho (Driphouse, ex-Raccoo-oo-oon, etc) and OD-Axis is the synth-laden dreamscape you would hope for. There are heavy sci-fi leanings and sharp rhythmic backbones but what comes through most clear is Witscher & Hos sense of pop melodicism. Underneath all the weirdness and all the debris, OD-Axis is one hell of a catchy record. All three pieces are just a setup for the side-long journey that is Monte Carlo, however. This 18-minute opus an ice-cold killer that leaves little doubt that Mandelbrot & Skyy is more than your typical collaboration. Calculated beats underline the movement as Witscher & Ho lace a dozen sonic ideas around a central, slow moving design. The ride starts off ominous as it traverses through an aural wormhole with no specific destination in mind." - Digitalis.

Title: Ndzi Teke Riendzo No. 1
Format: Double LP
Label: Honest Jons
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Foster Manganyi is a pastor from South Africa. His sublime music shares with Honest Jons compilation Shangaan Electro (HJR 052CD/LP) a startling palette of sampled, synthesized sounds -- the signature whistle and marimba, no bass, a little wonky high‐life -- and rough, fast, skittering drum patterns. Yet these are gospel songs, intensely sincere, brimming with aching, plaintive, mournful spirituality, without a trace of R&B, mangled or not; and however fractured, multi‐faceted and fresh the music comes across, the surging lines and harmonies of the support singers are unmistakably rooted in the traditional vocal music of South Africa. Just in time for Christmas, this is the reissue of a hit cassette from 2008." -Honest Jons

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

They dont know how some of the sounds ended up on tape, the sounds have just somehow emerged from somewhere. But still there is a logic deep in all this. Relentless energy and a constant flow of ideas, some of them good, some of them something else. And these are hi-fi 4-track recordings. This is the fresh and exciting sound of the 21st century!" - Lal Lal Lal.

"Finland is the epicenter of collective music-making. Under the name Maniacs Dream, members of a variety of Finnish bands such as Avarus, Fricara Pacchu, Kemialliset Ystävät, and more come together to create blown-out free rock (not your typical stoner guitar jams). Their unique/bizarre approach to music-making constantly questioning the construction/deconstruction of sound creates songs at times recalling the electro-acoustic clatter drone of Avarus crossed with tribal rhythms and intergalactic guitar zones. Total sonic freedom with a punk ethos directly influenced by a trip to Zanzibar prior to recording this record (which is a reissue of the long sold-out tape originally released on Lal Lal Lal in 2006).

Title: The Lost Tapes
Format: CD
Label: Palo Alto
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"In the annals of Hardcore Punk history, there are certain bands who stumbled their way on to many vinyl and cassette compilations of the early eighties that stuck out so severely you just had to ask yourself Why?. Although their intention and sentiment fit right in with the Reagan Sucks/Drugs Suck/You Suck vibe of the time, their ineptitude and spirit created something so unique that it hit a vein of expression that was entirely of its own. None of the mask sporting pre-conceiving art wavers of the time could have come up with statements as effortlessly bizarre as the ones presented by such brave and confused one hit compilation wonders as Church Police, B.I.U, and Demented Youth.  On the tipity top of that teetering list is Fresno Californias Maniax who supplied us with the beyond classic anthem Off to War on the beyond classic Not So Quiet on the Western Front double LP compilation in 1982. For nigh on twenty five years now, this track has intrigued the fuck outta me. With the fidelity lower than whale dung, a truly buzzsaw guitar battles for space with a barely pubescent vocalist who drones on and on reciting the words Off to War over and over again for a good five minutes. I always wondered if their other songs were this disorienting and wonderful. Well, I need not wonder no more! Maniax vocalist Gregg Mitchell has finally found the time to share with us the lost tapes of Fresnos youngest early 80s Punk band and its every thing Ive dreamed it would be and more. 34 tracks of bedroom recorded early teenaged Punk Rock anthems about dead dogs, posers and having a crush on Wendy O. Williams. Are they using an air organ on track 29? What the fuck? THE MOST ESSENTIAL AND NEEDED POSTHUMOUS PUNK ROCK RELEASE OF OUR CENTURY AND I MEAN THAT. Even though I really hate how nothing of the past is left to the imagination anymore these days, I gotta say my brain is exhausted after twenty something years of wondering what those other Maniax tracks sounded like. Thanks for the rest, Gregg." -- Tony Rettman.

Format: 7"
Label: Mt. St. Mtn.
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"With the deceptively determined surge of a sleepy glacier, The Mantles have been quietly and slowly perfecting their trademarked dark n dirge pop sound over the past few years. Starting as a trio, the band recorded their Dulc-i-Tone single with the mysterious & unreliable Cram-Ro production team. The band then dug themselves out of the Cram-Ro shit-morass for a batch of sunnier sounds courtesy Papercuts Jason Quever, two songs of which make up their forthcoming Mt. St. Mtn single. Soon after this session, the band lost a bass player but simultaneously absorbed both halves of the Cram-Ro team (including the half that sometimes gets Personal wink-wink), and its this current four-piece incarnation that recorded the upcoming Siltbreeze full-length album with Gris Gris Greg Ashley. Reviewers & showgoers alike regularly struggle without success to pin down the Mantles sound, though the Paisley Underground scene somehow seems to come up a lot, and though reviewers have an affinity for the words New and Zealand when describing the Mantles, band members insist that Mantles songwriting mainman and Graeme Downes-lookalike Michael O. has no idea what Flying Nun is other than a goofy TV show, nor is he familiar with that Slitbree label people keep talking about." - Mt.

Recorded by GREG ASHLEY, the LP taps said hybrid, and if anything, burrows deeper into the core of rock, extracting essential magma that fuses early SF Ballroom psychedelia, Byrds-ian jangle-pop, and the Velvet Undergrounds extraordinary ability for serpentine leads and bridges.

"The idea of the Supersession album dates back to 1968 with Al Koopers LP with Michael Bloomfield and Steve Stills. Fast forward thirty-seven years to the new album by Many Bright Things. It opens with the twenty-second title track, followed by the twenty-minute centerpiece: The Paul Butterfield Bands John Coltrane/Ravi Shankar-inspired masterpiece, East West. Across its twenty minutes and forty-four seconds no fewer that FIVE guitarists step into the center ring with solos that begin with Larry Demyer (Windopane) and include back-to-back fiery electric sermons by Nick Saloman (Bevis Frond) and Al Simones. The Silver Witch is written and performed by Alisha Sufit (Magic Carpet) accompanied by Frank DeFina on a beautiful Stephen Gilchrist F-5 mandolin. We think this song opens the second side of the vinyl as nicely as Within You Without You opened side two of Sgt. Pepper. Alishas voice reminds us of our dreams of angels. A tamboura drone and tabla accompaniment (by Paul Tescher) are the foundation for Minor Parade for 18 Strings and a duet between Stan Denskis acoustic 12-string Guild guitar and Paul Majors lead electric. Stan Denski & Larry Demyer play guitars, David Tufty Clough (Zero Boys) adds bass and Lon Paul (Marmoset) adds percussion, all of which form the ground upon which Jello Biafra (The Dead Kennedys) improvises observations on rare psychedelic music on I Am Not a Collector Potato! We guarantee youve never heard anything quite like this. The CD adds the ambient bonus track There Will Be a Slight Delay." - Gates Of Dawn. CD also available.

"Two years ago Alga Marghen issued the third compact disc by Walter Marchetti, the mysterious and inaccessible De musicorum infelicitate. The edition included a folded poster with the presentation written by Gabriele Bonomo, a series of aphorisms to introduce the listeners to this work. The composer had then decided to let this edition circulate with no extra information looking at it as a perfect final statement. But a complete score was existing, and what a score. And it took several months to convince him to let it be printed as a book in order to provide a new perspective to this multi-layer cryptic unhappiness of music. For this is not only the score of a great composition but also a series of statements which help us to enter the composers epistemology and his point of view about music, creation and our contemporary condition in general. Now as we approach the end, music seems to hasten our pace; now that the word is mantled in a vast cloak incessant vibrations and, sadly, everything is becoming music; now it was the perfect right time to issue this precious book. A book with no poetic moments, never obscured by art, never the servant of art, meant to give an immediate image of music. Such a book could only be published as a high quality industrial object, album hardbound, 200 pages in DIN A 4 size, published in English and Italian, issued in an edition limited to 300 copies only. Music! Deadly dust for the mind. The world as music: a cosmic catastrophe. At this point, music remains in possession of only a single sound; all the others have been discarded.

Title: Utopia Andata e Ritorno
Format: Double CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $36.00
"Music: the foundation of that presence in which we find ourselves shows itself as pure negative. Everything is founded on a demonstration of its own negativity: as awareness of its being negative, and does not look for an escape into a future presence, that is an objective future. But, accepting its negativity, makes of this self-negation the real act, the true reality - the true foundation, the real and actual continuity: this is musics sense. Utopia Andata e Ritorno is the title of the new composition by Walter Marchetti, recorded in Milano in 2005. It has two parts, each one CD long. The first part, LAndata, puts together two former recordings of Marchetti. The recording of a real storm and a recital for solo piano. This is not the first time that Marchetti mixes a piano solo recital with the recording of a natural live event, thus creating a piano concert. The second CD, Il Ritorno, reverses the direction of the first record and literally destroys itself. In the first part of this work, Marchetti puts music successfully in the place it has to have today: on the road to renewal in contact with reality, a reality that is a synonym for vacuity, that is the interdependence of phenomena, music, reality, technology. There is nothing mimetic or anecdotal in this work. The storm is a real storm and the solo piano recital is a modern work of pure music, without the excesses that the society expects of a piano recital from composer and virtuoso player. Pure music, in the best sense of the word. Three-folded digipack 2CD edition. It includes a 32-page booklet with essays by Water Marchetti, Gabriele Bonomo and José Luis Castillejo. First edition limited to 500 copies." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Throughout the Borders
Format: 7"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $9.00
"When we described the first Marching Church tape, that came out about 2 years ago, we called it ”very strange music” – and now with his first 7” it is clear, that it is a label that still applies. On ”Throughout the Borders” Marching Church presents four very different pieces, that all manages to stand strong on their own ground. The artist behind should need little introduction at this point. Elias Bender Rønnenfelt has over the last couple of years made heads turn. First and foremost as the singer of notorious Iceage, and lately as part of the project Vår. Marching Church’s ”Throughout the borders” is another proof why the young man has rightfully earned his reputation. He makes music that sounds like nothing else and with such a pop sensibility that it makes you feel as if you have met it somewhere before. This does not sound like Iceage and it does not sound like Vår, it sounds like what it is; four new tracks from Marching Church, blood drenched music, carved from the chest of the young craftsman." - Posh Isolation.

Title: Guitar Drag
Format: LP
Label: Neon Gallery
Country: Sweden
Price: $25.00
Soundtrack from the video Guitar Drag, 2000.  Recorded in San Antonio Texas, on November 18th 1999. 12" one-sided transparent vinyl. 14 minutes.  "The record is actually the soundtrack for Marclays video with the same title that was shown first at Londons Hayward Gallery sound art exhibition Sonic Boom in 2000. The piece as well as Marclay has become an icon in sound art circles, and although the video can only be seen in exhibitions as an installation, it is widely known. The full 14-minute soundtrack is released on a beautiful 12" clear vinyl record packaged in a sleeve with stills from the video. Filmed in San Antonio Texas, it shows an amplified Fender Stratocaster guitar attached to a rope being pulled behind a pick-up truck. As the guitar drags across the road it produces a range of sounds from the bumping and the friction against the varied surfaces. A fantastic visual piece, but also an amazing sound piece, that stands just as well alone, and in some ways just as visual! From the first sounds of duct-tape being ripped, the familiar sound  of someone gently slamming the strings of the guitar, to the sounds of an engine starting and then slowly the beginning of a sound that is hollow and at the same time human, and that takes us through the deepest roarings to high pitched screams until the very end when it all slows down and stops, unwillingly it seems. Knowing the story behind the work or not, the sound itself triggers your imagination, leaving your soul no peace. For even if this could be seen, or heard, solely as a beautiful noisy sound piece, there is too much to the idea behind Guitar Drag, for it to not leave you restless and thoughtful." - Neon Gallery.

Title: INSTAL. Glasgow 2008
Format: 4 LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $46.00
"PAN is honored to present one of its boldest releases yet; a 4LP edition of a 3-hour set from the legendary Japanese group, Marginal Consort, recorded live at Arikas INSTAL 08 festival at The Arches, Glasgow. Marginal Consort is a Japanese avant-garde improvisational collective made of sound and visual artists, who were all students of Takehisa Kosugi at the radical Bigaku School of aesthetics in Tokyo in the 70s. The group is a reformation of the East Bionic Symphonia, who released an incredible long-form drone record in the early 80s, a large improvisation ensemble in the spirit of Kosugis Group Ongaku and Taj Mahal Travellers projects. Marginal Consort is formed around musicians Kazuo Imai (a student of Japanese free jazz linchpin Masayuki Takayanagi and also member of both Taj Mahal Travellers and Takayanagis New Direction Unit), Tomonao Koshikawa, Kei Shii, and sound-artist Masami Tada (also in GAP). This extended set explores forms of sound and ways of playing that never coalesce into music, but create a group dynamic of ebb and flow, of exploration and fluidity. Marginal Consort also featured previously artists Yasushi Ozawa, bassist in Keiji Hainos Fushitsusha, and Chie Mukai, from dreamy psychedelic group Che-Shizu. With this cast on board, they took their free improvisation to the streets to create drones and percussive interplay in urban communal harmony. "A form of sound that does not turn into music and a group that does not produce harmony; individual concepts and group fluidity; individuals who are at once independent entities and components of the whole; coexisting time frames and intersecting rhythms -- these are among the images of group improvisation that have occupied my mind since the 70s. These images neither presuppose specific elements nor regulate the entire process. There always remain, however, the fundamental premises that sounds are separately produced phenomena and that their accumulation forms the whole." --Kazuo Imai; 4LP mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering and pressed on 4x 140 gram vinyls which themselves are housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve. - Features liner notes by Barry Esson, extended photo documentation by Bryony McIntyre and artwork by Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

"Crucial document of this seminal NYC band from the late 70s, considered by many in retrospect to be the most influential no wave band from the era. A quartet of Sumner Crane, China Burg, Mark Cunningham & Nancy Arlen, they recorded revolutionary EPs for Ze and Lust/Unlust, as well as contributing to the infamous No New York LP." - FE. "To the uninitiated, Mars may sound like listening to a laundromat magnified. Thats because every instrument is making a sound, but who is making which sound? Instead of one direct sound or beat the music travels in at least 3 different directions, speeds of rhythm making a totally orbital sound, one that never really enters the ear instead spinning around the head. At times it sounds like tortured children singing in 7 different tongues." --Stella Doon, 1977.

Price: $18.00
"In May of 1978, there was a five-night music festival at Artists Space on Hudson Street in Tribeca. Although almost no one cared at the time, the event has since entered the halls of legend, as one of the signal events in the history of the no wave era -- one that managed to include both the Lower East Side bands and those fronted by their Western contemporaries. On the final night of the festival, the two bands playing were Mars and Teenage Jesus And The Jerks. What we are presenting to you today are both sets by Mars -- the most mysterious, and bizarrely-styled NY band of their day. One set takes up each side, and while they are similar in song selection, its wild to hear how different they are in terms of attack, sonics and approach. The quartet -- Nancy Arlen, China Burg, Sumner Crane, Mark Cuningham -- was never captured at its mutational best in the studio, but this live slab is revelatory. Tunings, structures and rhythms from a place Capt. Beefheart once called "the other side of the fence," this is Mars at their most glorious." -Feeding Tube.

Title: Live at Irving Plaza
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"The second volume of live Mars recordings from Feeding Tube. This one was recorded at the bands penultimate show, August 4, 1978, with spectral help from Rudolph Grey on the side-long take of "NN End." The quartet is at the full height of their power here, manipulating the language of tongue explosions both instrumentally and vocally. Recorded by Brian Eno, the sound is an advance from the galacto-fidelity of the Artists Space LP, and the performance is a staggering example of Mars in their final phase. This is a stunning example of the No Wave impulse in its most experimental and personal guise. The package also includes a download card for both Mars FTR LPs, as well as a 20-page booklet, "Mars As We Know It," which is an oral history of the band assembled by Byron Coley and Thurston Moore from interviews conducted for their No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980. book. Issued in an edition of 500 copies, Live at Irving Plaza is a beautiful souvenir of a woefully under-documented band." -Feeding Tube.

Title: Mars LP: The Complete Studio Recordings NYC 1977-1978
Format: CD
Label: No More
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The Mars LP is the definitive collection of the 32 minutes of studio recordings released between 1977 and 1979 on vinyl by the first of the no wave bands. Supervised by the surviving members, remastered from original sources without any added effects, and packaged with detailed notes and lyrics, the Mars LP is an effort to recuperate the groups legacy and make up for the unavailability of these tracks in their original sound." "Static transmissions from a distant dark star. Taking up and tripping out further than the Velvet Undergrounds Black Angel Death Song , Mars punished not with blunt force, but with a propulsive agitation which signaled a neurological insanity. A crippled tension swathed in nervous friction. A cavernous musical universe riddled with eerie sound storms whose poisoned atmosphere seduced and threatened. Obtuse and unforgiving. Sickly sexy. Red noise redefining bass urges, forcing the listener to question their own sanity by drilling into ear holes using electroshock guitars as saw blades trepanning into grey matter. Mars unleashed a choking cacophony illustrating the body as machine in disrepair fuelled by the impending repulsion and disintegration of a perverse romance with ones own demons. Demons who once wrenched free, made mimicry of the jangling nerve centers, and given voice as song, turned schizophrenic and howled these testimonials to the unbearable." -- Lydia Lunch. "[note: Mars LP is the title, but this is a CD only release]. Includes their first single on Rebel/Ze, the No New York tracks, the Mars EP on Lust/Unlust -- their complete discography. This CD should be considered as an alternative to the still-valid Mars 78+ CD on Atavistc -- this one features all the original recordings as intended, with all the Thirlwell sound reprocessing of the Atavistic CD eliminated." - FE.

Country: Spain
Price: $30.00
"Our first project in a series of archival releases. Over two hours of unreleased recordings by the band Mars (NYC 1977) recovered from the original cassette source. These recordings are of special value because they capture sounds from pre-Mars (when they were called China) sessions up to right before they broke up. Here their sound runs the gamut from piano jams to pummeling and dissonant guitar assaults, the latter of which was certainly ahead of its time and has since functioned as a point of reference for later generations. A selected compilation carefully extracted from hours of tape and studio recordings that have been mastered to suit the cassette tape format in which they were originally recorded." - Anomia. Last copies, these with red covers. LINER NOTES: "Connie Burg and I met Sumner Crane and Nancy Arlen in late 1975 and quickly decided to start a band. Sumner had been playing piano since he was a kid and I trumpet, guitar and more recently bass, but we were for the most part self taught. Connie decided to pick up a guitar and we started jamming in Nancys loft on Broadway and Duane St. where Sumner lived downstairs.

For the first few months it was just piano, bass and acoustic guitar, with some paper bag percussion from Nancy. Our biggest rock influence at the time was Velvet Underground so we started jamming on some of their songs till we found our own. Tape one begins with Sumner alone playing over a Sweet Jane riff with his own blues styled fills, then goes onto Pale Blue Eyes, the first song Connie would sing. Our first original song with Sumners lyrics was Cry, also the only song to make the transition from our acoustic to electric line up. The set ends with a blues jam with Sumner improvising a story about a leather jacket. Here were joined by Jody Harris on guitar, who had been playing with us in the loft for a couple months until Sumner, for practical reasons- given that no clubs had pianos – decided to switch to guitar, at which time Jody gracefully bowed out. Jody: “Yeah, dim memory, being in Sumners loft for the first time – maybe hadnt met him yet. It would have been with Nancy. He was in a back room, hunched over the piano like a spider, playing great rolling two-handed blues and muttering away in the most sinister voice I ever heard. It was like something creeping up on you. So I thought, ok, Toto, this is the real thing.”

So we went electric, and Nancy bought a drum set, after we made a ridiculous attempt to find a drummer via a classified ad in the Village Voice. This must have been around September 76, and we practiced a few more months building a set before asking for a Monday audition slot at CBGBs in January 77. For this we needed a name so we started off calling ourselves China, for reasons nobody seems to remember. Hilly Krystal seemed to appreciate our quirky approach and put us on monthly rotation, which we pretty much stayed on till August 78. However, as wed cranked up the rehearsal volume considerably, Nancys neighbors forced us to find another space. We moved to Donny Christensens place on Warren Street, just a few blocks away, where the Cramps and others were already installed.

There we met Lydia Lunch and James Chance, who were squatting next door, and soon started playing together there as well, in Teenage Jesus. This period is well represented by a complete rehearsal set on Tape 1 Side B, although the tape was marked Mars, so it must have been just after we changed our name. Summer 77 was another turning point, as our sound matured we started to experiment more with song forms, dissonance and disassociation, the first example probably being 11000 Volts, several versions of which are on Tape 2, Side A, from towards the end of that year. We were still playing some of our earlier songs in mutated versions, but moving further and further away from our leftfield homespun NY “pop” to some darker unexplored place, guided as always by Sumner.

The next side is taken from a cassette I carried away from the recording session for No New York, with alternate takes and rough Eno mixes of the same four songs on the album. Dont remember much of this session but it does away with the notion that we were a one take recording band, though all takes were recorded live with no overdubs. Sometime in Spring 78 we moved again, to a duplex on Delancey Street where Lydia was living and rehearsing, and our sound continued to evolve, or devolve, with detuned guitars and bass, warped rhythms and more of Sumners unique words and madness.Tape 3 begins with the period right after No New York, with some of the same songs, and others, like Cairo, which were never recorded in studio. Around this time we played at Irving Plaza, in August 78, taped by Eno and released recently on LP, but in rehearsals we were looser, more internalized and often drew the songs out longer.

The first side unfortunately is cut off in the middle of a song that I have no recollection of. Side B is from our last month or so of existence, probably just before we played our last gig at Maxs Kansas City in December, as well as our last recording session forthe Mars EP, soon after. By then wed made our final migration, to an office in the American Thread Building, back in Tribeca again still some time before gentrification. The building was empty at night and inhabited by ghosts of dead garment workers that we channeled in our final electric gasps.

Please excuse all abrupt endings, lo-fi sound and dropouts, its what was left on the tapes once I dug them out of various boxes after years of hibernation. Keep in mind almost all were recorded on pre walkman desktop mono cassette recorders, which nevertheless had a warm condensed sound, faithfully transmitting the atmosphere of those turbulent long gone but thankfully not forgotten times in late 70s Manhattan."- Mark Cunningham, Barcelona 2012.

Title: Fog Tropes/Gradual Requiem
Format: LP
Label: Arc Light Editions
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Essential piece of modern composition from American composer Ingram Marshall, using tape delay, Serge synth and foghorn field recordings reissued on Arc Light Editions. Described by John Adams as "the antithesis of the human voice against the vast becalmed presence of the natural world." Originally released in 1984 on Foster Reeds influential New Albion label (which also released work by John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, and Morton Subotnik) it has not, until now, been made available again on vinyl. Fog Tropes began life as a series of field recordings of foghorns around the San Francisco Bay, made in 1979 for performance artist Grace Ferguson. These were then manipulated, added to, and expanded for performance with a brass section, which acts in sonorous call and answer with its industrial counterpart. In the records original sleevenotes, Marshall recalls: "A lot of people are reminded of San Francisco when they hear this piece, but not I. To me it is just about fog, and being lost in the fog. The brass players should sound as if they were off in a raft floating in the middle of a mist-enshrouded bay." The tone is somber, the rhythm tidal, the sound world an affecting piece of tape collage and modern/minimal composition, with echoing brass, gulls and sirens in the mist. Gradual Requiem is dedicated to Marshalls father, Harry Marshall. The piece is split into five parts, and includes a Serge synthesizer, with John Adams conducting. Tape delay and electronics are used in the sparse composition, a liminal spirit world, where familiar acoustic sound sources are processed lightly with electronic and tape manipulations and the hollow sound of the gambuh. Marshall began playing the two pieces together, later compiling them for this release. Together they mark a key moment in composition, bringing together environmental sound recordings, ethereal voices, brass and gambuh (Balinese flute), with Serge synthesizer and carefully executed tape manipulations." -Arc Light Editions.

Format: LP
Label: Rare Youth
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"This album is a collection of songs from Larry Marshall, an elusive and mythic figure whose self-described Gothic Folk...from the future is presented here for the first time in glowing, psychedelic stereo-surround, etched on black wax. Larry has been living in Rhode Island for his entire life, and has performed at many of the storied (and now defunct) venues in and around Providence, RI. Despite this long history, his music is barely known outside of a small circle of close friends and die-hard local fans. Queer And Wonder is a collection of songs from Larrys catalog: three tracks were previously released on a small cassette edition from Unskilled Labor, and a track by the band Box Patrol (w/Larry on vocals and pitch-pipe), was previously released on a CDR by the legendary Fort Thunder Records. The LP is rounded off w/ a few live tracks from a solo gig in Manchester, England, a live radio session, and some collaborations unearthed from tapes found in Larrys apartment in West Warwick, RI. Edition of 350, covers designed by CF, w/ inserts / lyric sheet." -Rare Youth

Price: $17.00
"Brooklyn based Martial Canterel (aka Moravagine) second LP release "Austerton", recorded in 2003, is a continuation of the spirit of "Confusing Outsides" however, he pairs down the processes even further. One of the foundational principles he abides by is for all of the music either live or in the home studio to be accomplished - performed - live in one push. The reconstructed ruins of Xanten inform the claustrophilic narratives of loss, indecipherability, and betrayal. The analog synthesizer is now truly a folk instrument...no longer necessarily an attempt at some conception of the future, but, rather, its impossibility, a lament for its ultimate undoing." - Xanten.

"MARTIAL CANTERELs SEAN MCBRIDE began producing minimal dance music on analog synthesizers in 2002. His unique sound would go on to shape the cold wave/minimal-electronic movement of the last decade, but despite his influence, Seans work stands apart from the genres he has created. Instead of looking to any scene aesthetic, McBride has always turned inward, focusing on craft, process, and composition. Navigations Vol. 1 returns to those early days to chronicle sketches, unfinished works, and forgotten tracks. In this material we hear a pioneering artist draft the blueprint for what would become 21st century synth music. Edition of 500 copies." - Electric Voice.

Title: Refuge Underneath
Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Wierd Records is proud to present Martial Canterels first full-length CD release entitled Refuge Underneath, a compilation of the artists first two long-deleted self-released cassette tapes Drilling Backwards (2006) and Sister Age (2004) as well as 5 previously unreleased tracks, all digitally re-mastered. Over the past 5 years the state of electronic music has seen artists slowly remove themselves from their work and visceral musical expression in general. Traditional electronic machines have been replaced by the computer as the dominant generator of contemporary sounds. It is in this climate that Sean McBride, aka Martial Canterel, began performing at bars, clubs and private parties in Brooklyn, NY in 2002, functioning singlehandedly as the pioneer and instigator of what has now become a new movement of minimal electronic bands in the United States. Martial Canterel records and performs using only vintage analogue synthesizers and sequencers, producing a highly-crafted, complex, and idiosyncratic form of electronic music that is simultaneously romantically melancholic and affirmatively aggressive. Inspired both by the first wave of relatively unknown minimal electronic bands in Northern Europe(a musical genre also often referred to as minimal synth) and the seminal industrial noise bands such as Throbbing Gristle, SPK, and Cabaret Voltaire, Martial Canterel presents a new optimistic paradigm for electronic music in which the analogue synthesizer functions anew as a folk instrument of humanist resistance to a virtual soft synth, iPod, and iTunes saturated world of click and drag dematerialized abstraction." - Wierd.

You Today incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and and swagger between major and minor keys, emanating a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds.

Thoughtful yet distinctly danceable and infectious, this record is the apex of McBrides icily idiosyncratic sound. You Today incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and and swagger between major and minor keys. The songs emanate a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds. Lyrically, the album continues McBrides exploration of the increasing difficulty in trying to connect with real people and real things as technology renders the material substance of bodies and objects ever more abstract and distant. This yearning for unmediated human contact with the world is appropriately echoed throughout the album by the hands-on, entirely live approach to recording and performance ("the molding of electricity" as he has referred to his compositional technique.) "Market" and "Sidestreets" each delve into the disconcerting atmospheres of crowds, buildings, objects and intimates; the city with its boulevards, by-ways, and dead ends complicating the meeting of two lost and wandering figures (perhaps lovers?) The restrained, sensual haze of "The Empty Sand" conjures oceanic imagery while the title track is a lament to love lost, ambiguously addressing the listener as a memory image of potential connection and attraction. The solitary listener can certainly enjoy the music of Martial Canterel, but its visceral intensity also translates directly to the dancefloor. Amidst a flurry of flesh in motion, in a blissful atmosphere of material connection with others, the concepts that permeate the music and its creation become a reality." - Wierd.

"Unavailable for over 10 years, this new edition of Lebenserinnerungen Eines Lepidopterologen (Memoirs of a Lepidopterist) collects the collaborative and early solo works of Andreas Martin and Christoph Heemann as an extensive 2CD retrospective. Moving between minimalist guitar compositions, tape-music narratives, and an array of cascading electronics, each of Martin and Heemanns solo recordings blend seamlessly within the milieu of their collaborative work. While one can hear how this forged the groundwork for much of the late-period H.N.A.S. material, the work here took the vision further, and helped shape a path toward their respective solo endeavors. Included are compositions from their first solo releases: Martins Doppelpunkt Vor Ort (1993) and Heemanns-Uber den Umgang mit Umgebung and Andere Versuche (1991), each originally released as small edition 10" vinyl. Also featured is a prime selection of previously unreleased material, obscure 7" tracks, and their collaborative opus from the (H.N.A.S.) Ach, Dieser Bart! LP (1988). This deluxe set includes two additional tracks (not appearing on the previous edition), remastered audio, and fully restored visuals. All packaged in a beautiful mini-LP gatefold jacket with an updated 4-page booklet. Over 100 minutes of music covering the years 1987-2000." - Robot.

Price: $15.00
"I first heard ROBERT MARTINs Long Goodbye while surrounded by friends. Even over the din of voices rallying to quantify, qualify, contain, bag and tag what we were all hearing, I was sure Id never heard anything quite like it. Long Goodbye opens with some broken acoustic noodling that sounds like a Derek Bailey slow motion replay, over which a double-tracked cry of voices transmits mournfully, meticulously, and with an unnerving sense of purpose. From there it gets stranger and more beautiful, as Martin sings with unique abandon-is there such a thing as sad joy?-often wordlessly, frequently incoherently. The tunefulness of Martins achingly beautiful voice sits in sharp contrast to the crudely played guitar, and sets Martin apart from his lamentably more in the know contemporaries. There are few touchstones for the magic contained herein-Bobb Trimble at his most wounded, Tony Caro and Johns All On The First Day LP, the earliest blues recordings of Guitar Roberts-but Martins intensely private music is all his own. And now, ours to share."-James Jackson Toth San Francisco, July 2007.

"There is a legend in Burma stating that swarms of male dragonflies gather to join in choruses of high-pitched tones to court their mates. The ones that dont succeed in mating eventually scream so loud that their chests explode and they drop dead to the ground. These recordings are a tribute to this legend. Droning cicadas, dragonflies, and other insects display their charm as masters of the high frequency airwaves, recorded live and unprocessed by Tucker Martine in the lush settings of Laos, Thailand, and Burma. Enter the supernatural world where entomology and electronica converge in a tropical hallucination of alien sound. Anyone who has ever wondered if these strange symphonies could be recorded or preserved as precisely as they sound in the field need look no further. Martine has done it and you will be transported to the exact experience one would encounter in these mysterious lowlands. Limited edition LP pressing of the long out-of-print CD from 2004, comes with a beautiful tip-on jacket, including an insert with photos and liner notes by Hakim Bey and Alan Bishop." -Sublime Frequencies.

""RECORD OF THE YEAR: Martin OCuthbert: B.E.M.S (Esoteric Records) Seriously, when I played this record, an object on the wall started to vibrate very quickly, and I have witnesses to prove it. Martin OCuthbert is either a very evil person (just listen to the record) or a total fool (just listen to the record). Probably be big in Japan, and at a guess Id say the whole thing comes off a Yamaha organ cos no synthesizer could sound that bad, could it?" --John Lydon (PiL), New Musical Express, July 22, 1978. Martoc aka Martin OCuthbert, has been making alien and alienated synth-pop in the UK since the post-punk period. This compilation gathers six songs released on 7" EPs during the years 1978-1980, plus four songs released during the first decade of this century. The tracks show a distinctive stylistic unity, inspired by fellow spirits like Fad Gadget, The Normal, John Foxx, and Kraftwerk. Across the decades Martoc has maintained both his close relationship with his synthesizers and an arms-length relationship with society, resulting in an appealingly quirky and individualistic iciness, informed also by his love of science fiction writers such as J. G. Ballard and Iain Banks. One of the songs included here, "B.E.M.S.," was chosen as record of the year by John Lydon in New Musical Express in 1978; John Peel was also a supporter. Despite these and other accolades, Martoc and his simultaneously catchy yet disturbing music has hovered resolutely under the radar, an alien craft avoiding detection by an unaware and perhaps unprepared world. Gathered together here, this collection of tracks offers an excellent opportunity to investigate an alien explorer. Compiled by Tamotsu Mochida, the author of Industrial Music for Industrial People (2013). Newly mastered." -EM.

"Travel back in time to 1969 with our official reissue of one of the most highly sought after west coast psychedelic rock records ever recorded. A heady trip, filled with grooving reverb-soaked jams! Prized original pressings command more than $1000!! In the tumultuous Spring of 1968, the Mary Butterworth band was formed. Contrary to rumors, the group originated from Southern California and enjoyed being thrust onto the incredible scene that was developing during this remarkable time for music. After a year or so of performing throughout the region in places like the Marina Palace in Seal Beach and others, they decided to record and release a debut album on their own label. In 1969, on a shoestring budget, their album was recorded, manufactured and released. However, the limited pressing was pre-sold to fans and friends only, and never even made it into stores. It disappeared as quickly as it arrived, as did Mary Butterworth, who disbanded not long after the albums release, never to perform together again. After a decade or two, word of the album had spread to rabid collectors of vinyl records and late 60s music. Somewhere in Europe during this time, a bootleg vinyl was released and the legend of Mary Butterworth continued to grow, driving the price of the original pressing up into the hundreds of dollars. It would go on to be bootlegged a handful more times in various countries, further driving the price of the original pressing through the roof and continuing to enhance the reputation of this long lost piece of 60s psych rock history. Here it is 2011 and Mary Butterworth returns from the past once again, this time in the form of an official licensed, from the master tapes, limited edition vinyl reissue of the impossibly rare and sought after 1969 debut album." - Rockadrome.

Title: The Tropics
Format: CD
Label: Showboat/Sky Station
Country: Japan
Price: $28.00
"2nd CD reissue from Showboat of this classic Japanese underground folk-rock album, originally released by RCA Japan in 1971. Great mini-LP gatefold packaging, but very few made and not long for this world. "The Tropics was Minami Masatos first record on which he got assisted by Mizutani Takeshi of the Rallizes Denudes, his only appearance on record ever. Minami Masato was one of Japans first beatnik hippie scum singers, who before venturing into the music world, spent some time in Mexico where he indulged himself in the narcotic goodies the country had to offer, went to America and witnessed in 1964 the rise of the beatnik movement and saw one of Bob Dylans early performances. Minamis life would never be the same again. He crossed the Atlantic Ocean, criss-crossed through Europe and returned to Tokyo in 1966. He participated at the 1968 Kyoto Folk Jamboree Festival. However, his debut single did not appear until October 1969, followed by a second single in 1970. This album, his debut appeared in July 1971 for which he got assisted by a loose collective of fan musicians and befriended artists. Hadaka no Rallizes Mizutani Takeshi was such a fan collaborator since he was quite in awe for what Minami stood for, being the unattached beatnik and drugged singer-songwriter he was. He let loose some ear shattering electric guitar on the albums closing track. This is the sole recorded output of Mizutani on disc. At least officially, if one ignores the dozen bootlegs and unofficially released music of his (like the Arthur Doyle-Mizutani 2LP set that was released without his consent). An unbelievably valuable document of the early Japanese underground. Hyper-rare and demented all the way. For lovers of Hadaka no Rallizes, Tomokawa Kazuki, acid folk, Jandek, and obscure and psyched-out sounds." -Showboat/Sky Station

After the release of two singles (in 1969 and 1970), 1971 saw the release of his debut LP, The Tropics. For this opus Minami enlisted the considerable talents of guitarist Takashi Mizutani (of Les Rallizes Denudes fame) and bassist Haroumi Hosono (of Apryl Fool and Happy End) resulting in this incredibly rare example of early Japanese acid folk.

Title: Talk To The Sea
Format: Double LP
Label: Music From Memory
Country: Netherlands
Price: $32.00
"The highly-anticipated second release from the Music From Memory label takes you into the world of Italian musician Gigi Masin. Part of only a small and very much underground music scene in his hometown of Venice, Gigi Masin self-released two modestly pressed LPs, Wind (1986) and Wind Collector (1991), and appeared alongside Charles Hayward for the Sub Rosa compilation LP Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre Volume 2 (1988). Having met with little commercial success in Italy at the time, Gigi Masins solo albums remained for the most part totally unknown. His music has though in recent years, and seemingly by pure word of mouth, developed almost something of a cult following. Gigi Masins uniquely intricate and at times deeply emotive compositions take the listener into a realm of contemplation, a spellbound mind state where time and space appear to dissolve. His sparse and hypnotic often loop-based compositions seem to draw parallels with Detroit technos earliest beginnings, all at once conjuring those same feelings of both melancholic longing and ecstatic joy. With access to Masins large body of work, far greater than that of the handful of released recordings, Music From Memorys new compilation covers a period of over 30 years, from the mid-1980s up until recent works. Including 17 compositions, most of which have remained unreleased or unavailable until now, Talk to the Sea aims to shine a light on Gigi Masins unique and heartfelt talent. This is electronic music from the soul." - Music From Memory.

"Medical Records is very proud to present the much anticipated reissue of the seminal French synthpop classic Les Visiteurs Du Soir by Mathématiques Modernes. Released in 1981 on the famous Celluloid imprint, this masterpiece has been out of print since its initial pressing. Mathématiques Modernes was the project of keyboardist Claude Arto and vocalist/lyricist Edwige Braun-Belmore. Arto has also worked with French bands Artefact and Spions. Also, to note, the late French producer Jacno also worked on the Mathématiques Modernes record. This gem needs no introduction to the fans who have enjoyed the classics from this era. The record is a very diverse blend of new wave, almost progressive arrangement, baroque melodies, complex rhythmic structures, and plenty of so called cold wave sprinkled in. The addition of horns was not a common finding during these times and is also represented on this eclectic record. Probably the most well known track, Disco Rough, was a single as well as was later included on the popular comp, So Young But So Cold, Underground French Music 1977-1983 released in 2004 on Tigersushi Records. It is a staple in many DJ sets with its sassy lyrics and jagged synth hooks. The album features string arrangements which were somewhat unique to the new wave scene. Most notably, the track Jungle Hurt displays the wonderful arrangements that interface well with the synth textures and percussion. The track A + B = C has also been featured on various flexi-pop comps and has a quirky melody accented by xylophone. The final track on the LP is an interesting medley of various tracks on the LP with interesting transitions. This LP has become very collectable for original copies and (when rarely found) is quite expensive. The original tape masters have been restored and remastered by Gilbert Castro of Celluloid Records. The sound quality is unparalleled. This project has been the collaboration between Mathématiques Modernes, Gilbert Castro, and Medical Records. The jacket features original reproduction artwork on the front and back. This record will surely need to make a mandatory arrival in the collections of fans of French new wave, early synthpop, and lovers of all things late 70s/early 80s. Presented on 180 gram grey opaque high-quality vinyl in a limited edition of 1000 hand-numbered copies.

Title: Rat Relocation Program
Format: CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"A street rat was breaking into our apartment, eating our food and chewing holes in our clothes, skittering across our kitchen in the dark, scuttling inside our walls late at night. Since we already had a pet rat, the prospect of trying to kill one rat while feeding another struck us as intolerable hypocrisy, so we bought a non-lethal Have-a-Heart Trap. After several days of luring the invader closer and closer towards and then inside the trap with peanuts, we captured her. The first track is an unedited recording of the rat protesting its incarceration. The second track is our response, in which the timing and duration of the rat screams from the first track have been preserved. The following morning we took the rat to a wealthy suburban neighborhood and set it free." -- Drew Daniel. "The dynamic hybrid electro-rock duo Matmos strike again hot on the heels of last years celebrated Matador full length the Civil War with this zany, completely mesmerizing 2 track contribution to the Met Life series of field recordings and ingenious sound responses. The Matmos boys stretch an ominous canvas with the bare sounds of an incarcerated rat ensconced in a friendly trap and paint an unlikely response. Rat Relocation Program is a heavily elevated, gleeful electro-rock epic that combines Matmos patented blend of humor, drill & bass with cinematic prog reminiscent of the cult fantasy sci fi film The Fantastic Planet." - Locust

Title: The Witch Channel
Format: LP
Label: Black Dirt
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Sometimes, throughout the process of creating a record, it is easy to forget how much magic is involved. When one is surrounded by wires, microphones, dials, tubes, screens, and stomp boxes there can be a decided lack of mystery. These are the earliest Black Dirt recordings, originally captured a mere few days after our humble doors were opened. As a matter of fact, everyone involved approached the experience as a sort of favor ⿿ youll be our guinea pig and well do our damn best to get a good document out of it. Matta Llama dug in for a session and did what they do so well... wordlessly picking up their instruments ⿿ and at certain points, each others ⿿ and opening up that secret door that allows access to a timeless wellspring of past and future sounds. After the band had improvised more than an albums worth of music, something seemed off on playback. Another session was scheduled and a different approach was taken. Oddly, the results were the same. We placed the recordings on a shelf and high fived each other before they rode off on their way back to the big, dark city. And there the recordings sat. But a funny thing happened a few years later after we received our Alchemists robe in the mail. We went back to the them and realized that whatever was leaden about the sounds Matta Llama had laid down so many months before was purely a result of a young studio ⿿ and novice engineer! - and once some of those problems were corrected, a blazing, golden, psychedelic beacon shot out of the speakers. The band was immediately contacted and at an impromptu meeting many things were discussed. Seeds grown to trees, lead to gold, and finally the idea of this record. Now, so many years later, this record glows with magic. It is hard to believe that there were any of the mundane trappings of a studio involved at all. It is a swirling, mysterious, and dark record and the document of the birth of Black Dirt and were proud to present The Witch Channel to you." - Black Dirt. Edition of 500.

Title: Exquisite Corpse
Format: LP
Label: Azul Discografica
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
Features Kevin Pink Reason, Loy Chinese Restaurants and Billy Bao. "What makes this record an exquisite corpse? Margarida, Kevin and Loy were given the lyrics to these ten "songs" only two days before the recording, and each of them recorded separately - consecutively - without hearing or even seeing each other. They were only given one chance to record their parts for each song, so what you hear on this record consists entirely of first takes. This way, as with all improvisation, there was no way back: the moment is what matters and if you record it, its there forever. I hate telling people what to play, just as I hate other people telling me what to play, so each of the musicians on this record played whatever the fuck he or she wanted to. Contrary to the usual way rock n roll records are recorded (first drums, then bass, then guitar and finally voice) I started by recording the voice; then Kevin recorded his guitar and piano without hearing me; then Margarida recorded her bass, again without hearing anything of what Kevin and I had done previously; and finally Loy added his drums without reference to any of the other musicians tracks. The only thing that we had in common was the lyrics, which functioned as a graphic score or, if you like, as a way of setting a mood for each song. Oh, yes, and we all had to conform to the stereotypical duration of a rock song - three minutes - which also happens to be the ideal length for one side of a vinyl without losing any volume. Once the tracks were recorded, I simply laid them on top of each other on the laptop, and did a very direct mix without moving or taking anything away... so as to let the exquisite corpse vomit the new wine!" - Mattin.

Price: $26.00
"The fifth edition of MATTINs ongoing series uses "improvisation as a way of exposing structural cliches in pop and rock music" and "song structures to demystify the so-called spontaneity and freedom of improvisation." With contributions from JOEL STERN and ALEX CUFFE (SKY NEEDLE), ANDREW MCLELLAN (CURED PINK) and guitarist DEAN ROBERTS (THELA, WHITE WINGED MOTH, AUTISTIC DAUGHTERS), it was created according to a strict set of conditions generated through an obsessively literal reiteration of the number five: five musicians record five improvised songs of five minutes each addressing five concepts described in five-word titles; a twenty-five-minute concert with five-minute sections structured by five instructions based on the song titles given to five members of the audience; vocals recorded for the five songs in the form of a singing lecture at the Victorian College of the Arts, where the audience only hears Mattins voice as he listens to the backing tracks on headphones; recordings of the first three parts superimposed to create a twenty-five-minute album consisting of five five-minute songs.

Artist: MAUS, JOHN
Title: Love Is Real
Format: CD
Label: Upset The Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"John Maus lives and works in Austin, Minnesota. Although first drawn to our attention as a core member of Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti and keyboard player with Animal Collectives Panda Bear, Maus has proved himself an extraordinary musician with a distinctive sound in his own right. Love Is Real is an album of contrast, of obscurity and familiarity, of darkness and light. Moments of intense disco anxiety warning against the sins of avarice (Too Much Money) find themselves rubbing shoulders with romantic virtuoso fugues (Green Bouzard). The juxtaposition of the buoyant 80s synth pop alongside Johns sombre, sometimes even morose lyrics is another good example of this tension. Without you girl, Im going over the edge, Maus sings over the four-to-the-floor dance rhythm of the albums prescient closer Times Is Weird. Over the fantastical keyboard gymnastics of The Whole Worlds Coming Apart, John finds relief in repeatedly confessing This is my nightmare, my nightmare. Its contrasts like these which point towards Johns preoccupation on this album with confused emotions and misunderstood intentions.

Title: Less Ness
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Dark Entires is excited to introduce the debut album Less Ness from contemporary Bay Area duo, MAX + MARA. Their collaboration began in 2012. Max is based in Oakland and has been a part of various projects most notably BROTMAN and SHORT and his current solo work as BUSINESS ETIQUETTE. Mara is based in San Francisco and is known for her solo work as GROUP RHODA. On Less Ness they worked with a hardware set up: 808 and Elektron drum machine, Moog, MAM, and Sequential Circuits synth with splashes of Mono/Poly and collage elements, vocoder lines and dubbed out vocals. They step away from the the computer as much as possible and prefer that their ideas can be traced back to the tools so that a sense of physicality remains. They find inspiration from all kinds of far out sounds, most notably dub, industrial, and various drug culture tangents. Lyrically the songs revolve around topics such as escapism, looking though cultural windows, and character role development. Some songs are a bit more surrealist in content with elements of hard realism and critical commentary. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a jacket featuring a painting by SHANA WHY. Prepare to turn your gaze to the things in front of you and away from screen generated culture and its mimicry of social participation." - Dark Entries.

Title: Air Ache in the Belly of the Leech
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"For the majority of newbie Flying Nun collectors, THE MAX BLOCKs eponymous (and only) 12-inch release is more myth than fact. Few seemed to have been pressed, and even fewer were available in the brief window of time (mid-80s) when it was "around." Unknown until very recently was that a second EP had been recorded and slated for release by Flying Nun but never realized. Air Ache in the Belly of the Leech is a compendium of both, and thus the complete recorded works of The Max Block. Youre welcome. Some background: The Max Block is where MARYROSE (nee WILKINSON) and BRIAN CROOK-now the power couple behind THE RENDERERS-joined forces for the first time. Maryrose was coming out of ABOVE GROUND, and Brian out of SCORCHED EARTH POLICY. With the enlisted talents of REBECCA SHANAHAN and ROBBIE STOWELL, The Max Block pushed different boundaries than other active Christchurch bands at the time; they came out slinging a brain-splattering goo of art-spaced, Pere-Ubu-seared cerebellum, and frenetic, Mars-fried medula oblongata. Such tantalizing aromas! Pardon me, garcon, but make mine deux. Bottom line, Siltbreeze is proud to make available this remarkable and awesome collection, much of it seeing the light of day for the first time ever.

Title: Max Load
Format: LP/CD/DVD
Label: BDR
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"MAX LOAD was formed and began playing live shows around Belleville in 1978. They soon were playing in St. Louis as well, but they never would be treated as equals. They were often forced to play first, before much less competent bands, or dead last, when the St. Louis crowd was anxious to get to the after-party. Last often meant playing to an empty room, rather than being the coveted headlining spot. Out shining most of the Missouri bands around at the time, they released a scorching two song 45 ("X-Rod" b/w "Magazine Sex") in 1979 on their own label. It was mostly intended as a calling card to secure gigs, but some copies were sold locally and a few even distributed by Bomp! Records in CA. The band would go on to record studio demos in 1980 at the request of Epic Records and would commit countless songs to tape with their own 4-track recorder. They were also the only punk band in the area to pay attention to and be featured on the short-lived cable access TV show, Street Beat. Although Max Load started out with a fairly traditional punk sound, by 1981 they started writing more post punk and art punk influenced material. This new direction can be heard on the included 4-track demos. Like so many other bands, they never got that record deal or big break they were hoping for. By late 1982, most members had moved on to new projects and the band was gone by 1983. The Max Load release is comprised of all studio recordings from 1979-1983. The X-Rod 45 is included, along with 22 never-before-released 8-track and 4-track demos. The package includes a 14-song LP, a 24-song CD and a DVD that features a 20-song live performance, recorded for cable access TV in 1981. The CD and DVD come with a title card in a protective sleeve thats tucked inside the LP jacket, along with a double sided 11"x17" insert featuring numerous photos, gig posters and extensive liner notes." - BDR.

Price: $20.00
"Sublime Frequencies announces a new film by Hisham Mayet: The Divine River: Ceremonial Pageantry in the Sahel. Condensed from 40 hours of footage shot between 2007 and 2012, The Divine River is an exhilarating, hallucinatory, harrowing record of music, ritual, life, and landscape along the Niger River -- which the Tuareg call "Egerew n-Igerewen," or "River of Rivers" -- as it winds through Mali and the Republic of Niger. Traversing 300 miles of this transitional zone between the Sahara and the Savanna, The Divine River is not a linear record of a journey so much as a phantasmagoria of visual associations that create their own emotional topography and chronology (always accompanied by music) that blurs the lines between sacred and secular, past and present. Highlights include intimate views of ecstatic dance in the painted houses of the island-dwelling Wogo; the seductive courtship rites and trance vocals of young Wodaabe men; a mesmeric Tuareg and Zarma duet for guitar and molo; Hausa griots enchanting with comsaa strings; Zarma spirit possession ceremonies; and heart-stopping footage of the Dogon mask ritual atop the Bandiagara Escarpment in the village of Endele. True to Sublime Frequencies "aesthetic of extra-geography and soulful experience," The Divine River refuses hasty contextualizations and rote interpretations that, far from "explaining" cultural displays, deaden viewers to the presence of mystery. Avoiding the temptation to reduce ritual to a simple matter of ends and means, its silence respects the chasm that separates concepts like "possession" from their lived reality. Rejecting the distractions of an imaginary understanding in favor of simple attention and humility, it traces the portal to deeper knowledge counseled in a centuries-old Sufi prayer: "O Lord, increase my bewilderment." 47 minutes/color; digipack; all-region DVD, NTSC format. Limited one-time edition of 1,000 copies." -Sublime Frequencies.

The LP is an ambitious, 50-minute feast of tight harmonies, powerful arrangements, fluid improvisation, and flat out great songs, and serves as a touchstone for twin guitar-driven, West Coast-styled psychedelia, soaring power pop, and blistering hard rock - some even call it prog - everyone wants a piece of the Great One. If youve been looking for an LP to complete an imaginary trilogy with S.F. Sorrow and Parachute, then this is your tonic. The stature of Maypole has been muddied by the previous CD reissues, but this LP edition gets it right. Featuring state of the art remastering and pressing, a high quality full color tip on jacket featuring original artwork, and a full color insert loaded with lyrics, photos, and complete historical notes by Maypole founder, Dennis Tobell, this is the closest to classic psychedelia Anopheles Records has delved in to date, and were glad we didnt settle for something second rate - Maypole is The Real." - Anopheles.

Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"If youre a fan of listening to AmRep-style, throat-hammering noise rock while operating a lawnmower, Sacramentos Mayyors have been your favorite band for quite a while now. The stories that Ive heard about the general directive of this band (self-release ten singles and call it a day, suggest a coastal alliance and rarely leave the state of California) points towards a treatise on how to make people remember them. I hope the streak of conceptual purity holds out, and it looks as if it might, because this four-song 12" is better than their first two singles. Luxurious 45 RPM mastering at as little as four minutes per side makes this one of the loudest punk records since In Love with Jetts, guaranteeing that whatever rental properties its played in are going to lose significant fractions of their security deposits. Im not normally a fan of effects pedal abuse, but what Chris Woodhouse does with them on Clicks, the way he builds a simple, two-note progression into percussive blastloops that line up with the drums, and dial through them like the channel knob on a now-useless TV set, has turned me around. These guys busted DJ Ricks forehead open at a house show -- not on purpose, of course -- but when was the last time any of you felt so much for a band that you were willing to risk bodily harm to let them play? I think he took the hit for us all. Serious Hazelmyer/Gear Jammer worship put to a hefty rhythm section that fires the kick on the up and the down beats, possessing that rolled-up-in-a-rug-and-tossed-downhill sorta ambiance that really makes these sorta things come together. Prolonged exposure to these times has been difficult. Mayyors dont take the burn away, but they do blot out the rest of the world for refreshing, two-three-minute bursts -- in the parlance of the Cinco Toilet Shower, just enough time to get clean." - Doug Mosurok.

Warehouse find of original copies of this Mazzacane/Kath Bloom LP release from 1982. Liner notes by Nat Hentoff. Following retrospective comments by the LPs producer: "On first hearing Kath and Loren one is struck by the daring intimacy of their sound. Both on their early Daggett recordings, and live, I was moved by the rigor and bravery of the spiritual explorations they undertook in their music. While mining not unfamiliar tunes in the blues and folk idioms as well as lovely, spare originals, they, both in their own distinct ways, daringly stripped the music to some of its barest and most exquisitely aching elements. Together, they created a sound that while it echoed some of American musics oldest traditions was something resolutely new and original. After hearing Kath and Loren on their own home produced tapes, I wanted to capture some of that sublimity, that quiet intensity with more clarity. Thus inspired, my short lived label put out Sing the Children Over almost 20 years ago. I hope you agree this collection of traditional tunes and originals captures something special about American music and that it deserves a new audience." - Andy Breslau. Highly Recommended!!

"The late Hamper McBee was a moonshiner, carnival barker, and ballad singer of legendary proportions. First discovered and recorded by folklorist and performer Guy Carawan in 1964, Hampers prodigious talent and personality won him admirers not only in his native Smoky Mountains but throughout the folk music world, where his wholly unique approach to old-time ballads and lyric songs struck like revelations.

Title: Music For Private Ensemble
Format: LP
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Music For Private Ensemble is Sean McCanns first new solo album since 2011′s The Capital. Demonstrating a more serious study of orchestration and timbre than his previous work; it is a big step forward. The four arrangements presented here shy away from the use of synthesizers and effects processing � instead relying on voicing and movement to actuate the albums sentiments. Inspired by the grandiosity of John Adams, the concerned somberness of Gavin Bryars, and the guttural tape work of Fluxus artists. Private Ensemble was written, recorded, and laboriously edited over the course of 17 months, composed both traditionally as well as through the clustering and organization of improvisations. McCann played violin, viola, cello, flute, piano, glockenspiel, and percussion. He was forced to notate samples of bassoon, french horn, and timpani, as those were not available resources at the time. Taking multi-tracking to extremes, many of the pieces surpass 100 layers of instruments. However this structural depth does not lead to chaos; no sound on Private Ensemble is unintentional. The objective with the ambitious multi-tracking and precision editing was to achieve the sound of a full orchestra. The only other person appearing on the album is vocalist Kayla Cohen (Itasca), her layered singing is formed into a small choir to help conclude the record. This album reveals McCanns most refined work to date, indicating the beginning of his transformation into a modern composer. Edition of 500 copies, with full color insert." -Recital.

Title: Vanity Fair
Format: LP
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Greetings, here we have Recitals inaugural release, �Vanity Fair,� Sean McCann & Matthew Sullivans debut collaboration album. A fitting introduction to the ethos of Recital; the desire to turn a new page, to more accurately project what is significant and engaging in contemporary music. Matt and I had often talked about collaborating, as our musical understandings and interests align. Both drawn to minimalism and graceful ambience, we would trade tidbits and slivers of ideas casually over coffee or wine. For the better part of a year, we procrastinated our theoretical project, which in retrospect allowed our ideas to ferment. So when it actually came time to pop the cork and record, everything fell right into place. What manifested in the studio was lush and enchanting. The pieces are quite varied, and range from the majestic to the tormented, occasionally synthesizing an almost humorous blend of the two. Presenting a manipulated animal and glockenspiel march, a chamber string and glass rhapsody, and a somber harp and phone ballad � it challenges the listener and expresses the development of both acclaimed artists. It is a timeless, refined effort, that both Matt and I are very proud of. Meticulously mixed and mastered, resulting in a rather sonically remarkable pressing of 560 copies. Also available in a deluxe red-wax edition coupled with an exclusive CDr, �In Concert.� -Sean McCann/Recital.

Title: Om
Format: LP
Label: Lost Century
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Reissue of sadly underrated 1968 UK psych-folk rarity. Mixing in melodic psych folk with experimental feel throughout. This album has been neglected for far too long! Limited edition 300 copies only." - Lost Century.
"The Om album, which contains mostly self-penned material, together with versions of songs by Pete Seeger, Dylan and Paul Simon, is brushed off as "inconsequential folky material" (!!!!) and then given a kicking; it is called "apparently very bizarre" by someone who admits theyve never even heard it. And the majestic Liquid Blue is referred to thus: "appeared for some reason on a "Circus Days" compilation, though this isnt a stand-out track performance by any stretch of the imagination." Well, I think youre all wrong. Liquid Blue IS something special. Those mellifluous harpsichord runs, Indian finger cymbals, sprightly rococo orchestration and breathy articulation, to say nothing of the lyrics, surely elevate it far above the norm. And those lyrics? Well, what can you do with a song which has lines such as, "Moving through the purple doors, Lady Celia and her horse, I love you all til the universe sings, Galaxies to deep space, Fade awaaaay..." or "May your dreams be reality, War to cease, Love to be." What else to do other than admire it as an exemplary example of British hippie pop? That Cecil McCartney is sincere is perhaps what damns him in the eyes of some later fans of the music. I say "fans of the music", because it seems they are no more than that, they clearly dont want to partake of the substance of hippiedom, merely its fancy dress trappings. They are frightened of Cecils veracity, his self-belief, his vision. To such as these, the existence of Cecils music will forever be the disapproving voice of the hippie conscience, in the wings wagging his gnarled finger at all the plastic hippies. Cecils songs are simplistic in structure. but are far from "inconsequential". And although, primarily folk-based (the presence of two other Dylan-worshipping Celts - Donovan and David McWilliams - is never far away), troubadour singer and acoustic guitar stuff, with occasional flute runs, Cecil expounds his version of the New Creed against a backdrop of occasional sound effects (the horrifying God Is Dead), sped-up vocal (Plastic Jesus), an intense aural Happening (Sacrifice) and prototype New Age mystical dizziness (Meditation). That the important folk strand of UK hippiedom has been ignored in recent years by dance floor obsessed mod-o-centrics, cannot be denied. But the existence of such music is a testament to its position within the stronghold of the Revolution. If you want to find out how it heard and how it felt to be a genuine hippie, then Om is as good a place to start as any, and worth a dozen sociological studies. If we can, from our enlightened perspective, accuse Cecil and his ilk of anything, it is surely only of naiveté, or of over exuberance in following the hippie path. Surely naiveté is preferable to bloated cynicism?” -Ray Holton, OM: A PERSONAL APPRECIATION.

"Randall McClellan was a founding member of the electronic music studio at the Eastman School of Music in 1967 where he later received a Ph.D. in Composition, Theory and Musicology. A growing interest in North Indian music and vocal technique prompted him to develop his personal compositional practice into an active platform for inducing altered states of mind. He constructed his concerts to be spaces for harmonization of mind and body through a musical practice informed by his esoteric studies of ancient mystery schools and sacred geometry, believing these to be primarily teachings on intentional resonance. Compiled with the assistance of his friend J.D. Emmanuel, this 4 cassette box is the complete recorded works of Randall McClellan, previously issued as individual cassettes, as well as a lecture on the relationship of music and esotericism with synthesizer accompaniment entitled, "The Healing Power of Music."

"Bruce McClure is well known on the international experimental film circuit for his unique projector performances that utilize film loops & modified 16mm projectors. But there is also an equally innovative sound element to his work and he has been embraced by the experimental music community as well. Bruce performed at the Chocolate Monk curated Colour Out of Space festival in 2008 and was chosen as an opening act for Throbbing Gristles reunion tour in the spring of 2009. During McClures performances the optical sound signals from each projector are fed through banks of guitar pedals, manipulated live, and played at extremely high volumes through the p.a. system. The different loops phase in and out of each other resulting in what could be described as a power electronics version of the early tape experiments of Steve Reich and Terry Riley, while sparser sections have an off-kilter minimal techno feel reminiscent of Plastikman and the early works of Thomas Brinkmann. This album features four excerpts from a professionally recorded performance in early 2009 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

"One of the best heavy guitar driven psych/prog albums from 1974! The album consists of six long tracks with a decidedly heavy guitar-based vibe. Heres an interesting obscurity that mixes two really long moody songs and some shorter hard-rockers. The long songs have definite anthemic quality, and theres some cool guitar, organ and synth soloing: plenty of wah-wah and freaky noises. Most of this is blues-based, most of it riff-oriented. Neither the short or long songs are structured in a particularly complex way. Both are vehicles for jamming. Its a pretty cool record, and more distinctive than the description would suggest. Pressed at 180gr. vinyl with very heavy laminated carton sleeves. Limited to 150 numbered copies." - Still Looking. Recorded at Sound 80 studios in Minneapolis. Hand-numbered.

"Reissued by Fledgling in 2007, this is a classic title from 1971 by Chris McGregors magnificent big band -- Brotherhood Of Breath. Arguably one of the most influential albums to emerge from the London jazz scene of the early 1970s, the Brotherhood of Breath was an exuberant big-band created by South African-born pianist and composer, Chris McGregor. In South Africa, McGregor had formed the racially mixed Blue Notes in the early 1960s. By 1964, finding it very difficult to work at home, they left for Europe, finally settling in London in 1966. The Blue Notes -- Chris McGregor, Dudu Pukwana, Mongezi Feza, Johnny Dyani and Louis Moholo -- made a huge impact on Londons jazz scene and befriended many in Londons emerging avant-garde jazz community. The Brotherhood Of Breath was essentially the expatriate Blue Notes augmented by a large number of their friends from the British jazz community. The ensemble played an energetic mixture of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Sun Ra, but retained a unique feel due to the South African influences and the intelligent arrangements. McGregor dreamed of keeping the band together "not as an institution, but as a community." Unfortunately, the economics of touring with such a large ensemble made that impossible. The group with a varying line-up continued to perform and record sporadically until McGregors untimely death in May 1990." - Fledgling.

It is the fire that burns deep in the heart of man, the light by which he sees truth in the sprawling darkness that besets us all. The Instinct begins to set in during the Age of Revealing, when the Architects of Manipulation are discovered and exposed. All of the worlds distractions­the inherent faults of the system to which everyone pledges their life, the false journey on which we are all led­is the sorcery, the anti­magic that has lured the masses away from lives filled with personal meaning or self­fulfillment. The Instinct kicks in, and reminds the individual that by discovering these elements and empowering himself with the clarity of objective, critical thinking, these sorcerers begin to lose their power, and he can win back his psychic sovereignty. This is the astral battle cry that sounds in the deepest thoughts of the individual as he begins to defend the palace of being that is his own consciousness." - ­Mark McGuire

MARK MCGUIRE could muddy anyones interpretation of the contemporary canon with his buddies in the triadic mega-unit, EMERALDS, his collaborative outings in SUN WATCHER and SKYRAMPS (with Daniel "Oneohtrix Point Never" Lopatin), and his prolific, yet well-executed, solo work.

This is a very down-and-out album of original songs written from the point of view of man who seems to be close to the void, or perhaps already within its deathly grips, reaching out to us with his weary, wraith-like voice. The songs seem to be interconnected, with the same characters and themes appearing on multiple cuts. Some of the lyrics deal with pain and loss obliquely, while others confront the harshness of reality head on: stomach problems, factory work, cancer treatment. Most of the material is recorded onto a wavering and echo-rich tape machine with just acoustic guitar, but as the album progresses, electric instruments and a full band cut through the fog.

Originally issued in 1979, first time on CD w/ bonus tracks. "Although Barton and his wife Priscilla McLean have had a long and distinguished history of LP and compact disc albums throughout their professional composer/performer career, this album is unique in that it is the first one to present, on one CD, such a broad and comprehensive picture of their purely electronic music, spanning 1975 through 2001. Interestingly, although their materials and equipment have changed, their ideas of musical composition are still basically the same, creating a unity throughout the CD." From the liner notes: "When Bart introduced me to the new studio with the Synthi-100, I stared unbelievingly: here was a huge synthesizer, along a whole wall, with hundreds of push-pins (a matrix setup for connecting sounds, rather than the old patch cords), and twenty-two oscillators! The Synthi-256 Digital Sequencer was a full-sized keyboard, standing alone diagonally to the analog synthesizer, but connected internally. In that studio with the giant machines, one raced from one end of the room to another to play and record the sounds, never sitting down, and in removing unwanted noise or editing out a recorded section, the composer had to take a metal splicing block and sharp razor blade, and pressing down very hard, cut through the 1-inch wide acetate tape in two places, remove the unwanted time segment, and rejoin the two remaining ends with special splicing tape! So we three - Bruce, Bart, and I worked all our spare time, alternating with each other, in the I.U.S.B. Studio. I spent whole days there, sometimes 22 hours long, working and working to get just the right sound-combinations and record them." - Priscilla Mclean.

Sharing more in common with Jamal Moss at his maddest, Regis in full swing circa 97 or Unit Moebius as wed imagine them every day, the young Swede bucks all expectations with five tracks of blistered machine drum jack, overdriven to fuck and liable to take your eyebrows off. Its funky as hell and noisy as sin and does it with so much more swerve, sexiness and off-the-cuff cool than so many boneheaded, funkless techno types we dont care to mention.

Title: Pieces of Light

Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"First time vinyl reissue of Joe McPhees classic CJR LP from 1974. Repress of the original artwork. Another reissue of ultra-rare, 70s McPhee vinyl. In 1974, Pieces of Light was recorded and released by the CJR label. McPhee had picked up on the growing electronic music movement, and recorded a set of duos on saxophone, trumpet, E-flat alto horn, flute, modified Nagoya harp, chimes and voice with John Snyder, who played an ARP analog synthesizer. The result is a stunning six-part meditation on how best to combine acoustically and electrically-driven sounds. McPhee at times anticipates and complements the limited wave forms of his playing partner, but the two dont try to mimic or play on top of each other. They shift, meld, and counter each other. McPhee at times plays extremely jazz-tinted phrases, in alien vistas created by Snyders synth, without ever coming off as quaint. Definitely something a little different from the fire music of the time. Joe McPhee (tenor saxophone, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, alto horn, flute, chimes, harp, voice); John Snyder (synthesizer)." - Bo Weavil.

"First time vinyl reissue of Joe McPhees classic CJR LP from 1969. Exact repress of the original artwork. Trumpeter and saxophonist Joe McPhees first album,Underground Railroad, has been virtually impossible to find on vinyl, issued in an edition of 500 copies onCraig Johnsons CJR label -- it was recorded next to Johnsons house at the Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, New York. It sold out and was never reprinted on vinyl until now. Underground Railroad is comprised of three pieces, the title-track, "Harriett," and "Message from Denmark." The band features McPhee on cornet, pocket trumpet, and tenor, Reggie Marks on tenor, soprano, and flute, bassist Tyrone Crabb, and Ernest Bostic on drums, and is a scathing fire music release. There are wild, ecstatic interactions between McPhee and Marks, while the rhythm section harness the moaning, screaming, crying, and wailing done by the front men. On "Harriett" and "Message from Denmark," the music takes on a decidedly more spatial feel. This is McPhee at the height of his powers of improvisation and composition. As far as vintage ecstatic free jazz goes, it doesnt get much more nail-biting than this. Limited to 500 copies. Joe McPhee (trumpet, pocket cornet, tenor saxophone); Reggie Marks (tenor and soprano saxophone, flute); Tyrone Crabb (bass); Ernest Bostic (drums, percussion, vibes).

Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"First time vinyl reissue of Joe McPhees classic CJR LP from 1970. Exact repress of the original artwork, limited to 500 copies. "What time is it?" Joe McPhee shouts at the opening of this classic LP. Time at last for a vinyl reissue of the highly sought-after, ultra-rare Nation Time. Why this wasnt done years ago is anyones guess. Nation Time catches the exuberance of the master in his youth, playing a glorious to-the-wall mixture of R n B and free jazz motifs, with a great deal more thrown into the mix. Two of these three long tracks were recorded at a concert at Vassar College on December 12, 1970: "Nation Time" and "Scorpios Dance." Featuring the electric piano of Mike Kull and the relentless percussion of Bruce Thompson and Ernest Bostic, there is a definite hint of rock. On Nation Time McPhee also plays with a burred R n B tenor tone elastic enough to blend with the searching, spaced-out solos from Kull and McPhee himself. "Shakey Jake," recorded in a studio the next day, adds an alto saxophonist, an organist, and an electric guitarist, and is far and away the full-on dancefloor cut of the LP. Free at the fringes, booty-moving at the core. Call it what you want; free jazz, free-funk, fire music, or simply great music." - Bo Weavil.

Title: Soprano
Format: LP
Label: Roaratorio
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"A document of Joe McPhees first solo concert devoted exclusively to the straight horn, Soprano is both a companion volume to his previous LP for Roaratorio (the critically lauded Everything Happens For A Reason) and a follow-up to his classic album Tenor, which raised the bar for solo saxophone music over 30 years ago. Recorded live in St. Georges Church at the Guelph Jazz Festival in 1998, Soprano was inspired by Pauline Oliveros Deep Listening performance at the venue the previous year. The acoustics of the church provided a natural web of reverberation and delay, and compose as much a part of the sonic palette as Michael Overhages farmhouse did for Tenor. McPhees art is informed by the head and the heart in equal measures, and Soprano is thoughtful, passionate music from one of jazzs most eloquent practitioners. A limited edition of 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl, with a Judith Lindbloom silkscreen print on rice paper and liner notes by McPhee and Oliveros." - Roaratorio.

"Recorded on november 2010, Ithaca stands as one of the missing links between the tradition of free jazz and the current explorations in sound art. Bringing together one of the greatest living free jazz saxophonists and a young talented percussionist and sound sculptor, you have a record that sounds like a classic and yet way ahead of its time. McPhees playing here is so lucid that it feels like a compendium of all those aspects of his style that have enlightened his long career, alternating beautiful soft passages to almost silent moments, or exploding into fuorious fire music. On his part, Keszler gives plenty of room to spread out, whether playing minimal rhythmic patterns or creating sound structures that collapse when joes saxophone goes wild. Silence, harmony and noise, perfectly balance each other on a work that is improvised avantgarde music in its purest form. Cover design and drawing by Eli Keszler."

Title: Trinity
Format: LP
Label: Bo Weavil
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"First time vinyl reissue of Joe McPhees classic CJR LP from 1972. Recorded on November 28, 1971 in the Parish Hall, West Park, New York. Exact repress of the original artwork. This excellent trio recording of blues-inflected out-jazz from 72 follows up on the hugely successful Nation Time, which was actually recorded a year Later. McPhee says it was not only a turning point in his music, but a turning point with his tenor sax as well: "With Trinity, I began to feel more comfortable with the instrument. Not having a bassist also removed me from a normal jazz context, let the music just be what it was... The larger space provided by the trio gave me more time to explore the instrument, the colors became more clear, the area I wanted to work became more defined." Even for Joe McPhee, Trinity is a far-reaching record, as broad as you can possibly imagine. McPhee delivers animalistic howls, plaintive melodies, and bluesy ramble. The group sound spans from free-range "space" music with vocals to high-intensity energy laid down over kicking drums. Each duo combination is explored at length, winding in and out of trio improvisation. Group improvisations guide this record, a simple conversation between three strong musicians with strong ideas. Joe McPhee (tenor and soprano saxophones, trumpet, pocket cornet); Mike Kull (piano and electric piano); Harold E. Smith (percussion)." - Bo Weavil.

"Recorded in New Zealand in 2004, is the duo recording of New Zealand guitarist Donald McPherson and Japanese guitarist Tetuzi Akiyama. A beautiful meeting of 2 virtuoso acoustic guitarists, both thoroughly schooled in the vast world of improvising. Donald McPherson, a native New Zealander has been playing the guitar since the tender age of 12, he studied at the Otago Art School in the 80s and in the 90s he released a number of extremely limited lathe-cut folk records. Tetuzi Akiyama is often associated with the improvising community in Tokyo generated around Tokyos Off Site venue. But to Tetuzis sound owes just as much to the country blues guitarists of the 30s. His sound has taken the blues form into a new world of minimalist improvisations. His loose playing side steps the usual clichés of the guitar in both the free improv and traditional folk scenes. Tetuzi has a varied number of very different projects from free improvisations, working with musicians across the globe, to hard minimalist electric blues boogies, a startling example can be found on Idea Records Dont Forget To Boogie LP and Headz live CD version. This record finds Tetuzi and Donald playing melodic folk improvisations that grow and morph into compositions that on each listening uncover some new layer of beauty. Both playing on acoustic guitar, they have a level of communication and understanding of each others playing, that allows a musical connection to grow and blossom into a full-length recording of delicate melodic mayhem. And the CD is limited to 1000, there are two extra tracks on the CD that do not appear on the vinyl version." First CD on BoWeavil; LP version is coming out later..." - Bo Weavil.

"The McTells formed in 1985 in Hertford UK. With a foot in the shambolic and aggressive sounds of The Fall and Swell Maps, they noisily stood out from a lot of their more soft C-86/noisepop contemporaries at the time. Initially a 4 piece comprising Paul Rixon on guitar and vocal, Bill on guitar, Stuart on bass, Mark Flunder from the Television Personalaties on stand up drums. Bill later left to form The Big Paintings but the rest of the band continued as a three piece releasing records on Pauls own Bi-Joopiter label. If you dont consider the 80s cassette culture a true DiY form of post-punk folk art, you really need to investigate the Bi-Joopiter discography. Comprising of painstakingly hand colored, bagged, stamped and xeroxed artwork, it truly does lift the medium of cassette-as-art that has carried on into todays aesthetic nether-regions of the resurged cassette culture movement. It is with that in mind that we at Captured Tracks, with the aid of Paul Rixon himself, have done our best to try to create as close a fascimile as possible to those first two McTells cassette reissues on Bi-Joopiter. Consider it a teaser for a more complete vinyl/CD reissue in the near future, we find these releases stand the test of time both on a musical and aesthetic level. Please note: the higher than average price (while still affordable) for a C/T cassette is a reflection of the complexity of the packaging." - Captured Tracks.

"Mindbending heavy acid space rock from Sweden 1969! Mecki Mark Men was (together with Hansson and Karlsson) Jimi Hendrix favourite Swedish band. When Jimi came back from his Swedish tours he probably told tales about the wild Swedish organ tormentor Mecki Bodemark who did the same things with his grinding Organ as Jimi did with his guitar. They sound like a mix of Teargas, High Tide and Jimi Hendrix but with a wild organ player in glittering space costume. The mighty guitar wizard Kenny Hakansson has never been more psychedelic than this!!! "While I was searching for the master tape to Mecki Mark Mens 2nd album titled "Running in the Summer Night" I discovered the original master which was originally meant to be released as the Swedish version of the album. Mecki Mark Men was contracted by Philips in Sweden but it was Limelight records in the USA who released the album in 1969. I compared the Limelight tapes and the newly discovered Philips tapes. Basically it was the same album but sound wise it was two totally different ones. Musically it is still brain melting Heavy Acid Space Rock driven by the fury of demons, but now with a fantastic pure and dynamic sound! The CD includes the album plus bonus material from the US version as well as short conversations from the studio. Detailed biography by Reine Fiske and Tommy Dahln!!!" - Mellotronen

Five hundred exact repro copies were pressed at RTI with crisp, heavy, old-style tip-in jackets produced by Stoughton. Turns out these seven songs are Guyanese-American artist Bill Russells only recordings. Bill had 100 vinyl copies pressed up in 1979 on his own Bi-Russell Records label, promoted it modestly and locally, and it went nowhere. Thirty-some years later, in a kind of message in a bottle-type scenario, one of those copies ended up at the Oakland Coliseum Flea Market and found its way into our hands. Inspired by army pals who were recording and releasing music without any label backing, Russell bought a Fender Telecaster and a Korg Mini and recorded Liter Thru Dorker Vibes in a makeshift home studio in South Central L.A. in just a few short sessions. When asked about his influences he insta-mentioned Santana and then added Hendrix, Sly Stone, Jobim, along with some New Orleans jazz stuff as well.

The six tracks on this record are the product of a serendipitous
meeting of minds and the feverish week of recording sessions
that followed. Mariana Saldana, Jose Cota and Seth Nemec met in 2007 in Austin Texas
and began recording the same night, writing the title track Inestable as
soon as the synths had been plugged in. Drawing on a shared love of synthesizers and drum machines, each had
worked as a solo electronic artist before uniting, the three immediately
found a shared vision.  Having grown up listening to Hip-hop, Jazz, Latin
freestyle and New Wave records from Europe, America and Japan, Medio
Mutante wrings a mutated blend of raw and propulsive energy from their
limited analogue gear. The bands name, literally �??Average Mutant�?� in Spanish, is also an
indication of their subtle perversion of familiar themes in their songs.
Love, science fiction, and disenfranchisement in a future gone bland are
turned on their ear in 6 danceable electro songs sung in Spanish and English.

"Longtime friends who had hoped to play together for some time, Fullman and Meehan were surprised by the initial efforts of their collaboration. Their instruments -- or rather the sounds of their instruments meeting in the acoustic space -- strongly influenced one another: combination tones, sympathetic resonances, beating, and even cancellation of each others sound. Mapping routes through this unusual territory would become the piece presented here in three parts. The recording was made Easter (R.C.) weekend 2006. It is an acoustic work, recorded in stereo, without overdubbing or effects. Ellen Fullmans long string instrument is a unique instrument of her own invention. Waist high, parallel wires, strung in two sets span 14 meters. Fullman produces rich, microtonal drones by pacing up and down the wires and applying friction with her fingertips. Each of her ten fingers precisely finds the appropriate string and the sound emanates from wooden box resonators bolted into the wall. At her studio where this CD was recorded, the strings run through the patio door and terminate in the backyard: "the extra length affords me an additional lower octave," Fullman explains. For the last ten years or so, Sean Meehan has been focusing on playing the snare drum with cymbals. On this recording he produces long, continuous tones from them using a dowel and friction." - Cut.

Title: (onkyo ok)
Format: CD
Label: CMR
Country: New Zealand
Price: $12.50
"Launching CMRs new line of hand-numbered 78rpm dust jacket CD packaging is Dutch sound artist Roel Meelkop. Roel was a founding member of audio art group THU20 in the early eighties who continue to perform and record, is currently a member of electro-acoustic live project Kapotte Muziek, and the electronic rhythm group GOEM (both along with Frans De Waard and Peter Duimelinks). Roel has a long history of visual art, sound installation, curation and organization of various live music events in Rotterdam, his city of residence, and abroad. His well-received solo work has been released on numerous labels including trente oiseaux (Ger), V2_Archief (Neth), line (US), Intransitive Recordings (US), Korm Plastics (Neth) and most recently Tariff Records (US) and Klingfilm (Bel). onkyo ok is composed of recordings made during Roels tour to Japan in summer 2001 (along with Frans De Waard and Peter Duimelinks). Where Kiyoshi Mizutanis Yokosawa-iri CD (cmr1) uses primarily rural sound sources from a selected area, onkyo ok may strike a special chord and familiarity with anyone who has visited Japans urban areas, cities and outlying regions. Various components of the rich Japanese soundscape (to name a few: pachinko parlours, train crossings, crows, electrical machines, people) have been captured, abstracted (or not), blended and re-composed creating unique sonic snapshots of this beautiful and at times bewildering country. The sound pieces are relatively constant over time (Roels characteristic silences are at a minimum) containing numerous complimentary sources simultaneously building together into broadband structures, then falling away to focus on various seperate objects and events. This album serves as a beautiful document and expression of the ever-changing Japanese acoustic environment as it was at the beginning of the twenty first century." - CMR.

Its aggressive guitar music thats "punk" in its DIY manic quality, but with an aesthetic thats much closer to the late 60s and early 70s.

"After a pretty distinct sounding debut 7-inch and LP that garnered good reviews yet still managed to fly under the radar of most listeners, Sweet Rot is pleased to present a new single by Portland, Oregons MEERCAZ that takes the bands output to new levels. Formed by frontman MUSLIM DELGADO, Meercazs two songs here float hazily somewhere around Gizmos/Twinkeyz/Chrome proto-punk territory that solidly nail it in the songwriting department while still maintaining an appropriate amount of guitar damage and experimentation. A perfect single, in our minds, from one of Americas most underrated bands, and a teaser for the bands excellent 12-inch EP coming soon from Tic Tac Totally.

Pushing up the great Stooge-mountain like some anti-gravity lava flow, drawing on some of Hawkwinds primordial elements as well. And what 70s-styled space rock stew is complete without a dash of Half-Machine Lip Moves-era Chrome? And like these examples its a grandiose little dose of solid material. And building well onto the first LPs foundation. Meercaz is constantly tinkering with the future, inventing their mental toy chest in these sounds while drawing on the true beasts of yesterday. Looking forward to big things. No diet music on this record. And watch your teeth! The shit is reasonably digestible, yes, but also quite chewy.

"Pure energy and total expression are the only boundaries around the free-jazz/music movement. Primitivism and psychedelic confusion act as the main themes. Mef Teef of Iowa City, a relatively new collective, have one past release on Raccoo-oo-oons Night People Label (of which MT percussionist Andy Spore is a member). Spastic drumming acts as the basis for which brass, piano, and silence interweave. Culled from a hometown live session, "Dark Star Voyage Pt. 1" features unique instrumental interplay causing the piece to progress almost theatrically with definitive mood changes. Brooklyns Owl Xounds Exploding Galaxy is a heavy hitter in the free jazz underground. Comparisons to avant-garde greats are not unjustified. With a recent LP out on Wooden Wands Mad Monk label and a plethora of sold out self released jams, this is the collectives first tape. Focused on the youthful energy of punk music and centered around the drumming of Adam Kriney (La Otracina, Castanets), in "Transmission To The Pineapple Universe", Owl Xounds produce pure blown out oblivion never faltering in its onward progression. Recorded live at the Cakeshop featuring Gene Janas on upright bass, Darius Jones on alto sax, and Greg Vegas on electric guitar the jam is a total freak-out, seething equally with nods to Sonny Simmons as it is to Sonic Youth.

Title: LAppel du Vide

Label: Open Mouth
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Subterranean, nearly-inaudible restraint and a rushing, stuttering throb rule the night on this new record. Its electric moods are so resolutely alien they suggest worlds unknown rather than create them. Irregular heartbeat thumps are set against high end atmospheres explored in microscopic detail. Haunting overlays of tones fluctuate and tremble, and not one moment feels forced. The music is meticulously constructed and consistently surprising. The electronics spin away, shooting off into bizarre and unexpected territory, and all the while Meginsky guides them with a benevolent, confident, endlessly fascinating hand. To hear him tell it, the record is a document of me looking for the experience I have not yet had, and maybe will never have. This is where the title comes from. The pull of the void. Natural phenomena, like fog or mist, tend to render the environment and ones ability to see it nearly impossible, and if you tilt your head back like you have a nosebleed there is always the fear that the sun might set sooner. When you stop in a secret place there is no need to talk. These are streets full of sullen languid violence and grey phantoms. Edition of 300. Cover art by Bill Nace. Play at 45 and play loud." -- Matt Krefting Holyoke, MA May 2014.

“Die Taubnessel presents Incredible Familiar Music and Absolute Relative Music, two LPs by ex-Faust drummer Arnulf Meifert & Family, issued in an edition of 150 copies. Also includes a large 60-page book of drawings by the controversial artist Klaus Holzmann.” - Die Taubnessel. "Silence and deliberateness are luxuries today. Most relevant music now is speedy and noisy, fuel and gas for the rot-machine called modern civilization. All has become a style and is designed for a special audience. Recording our musical pieces was just fun, we had no intention, we will not repeat it. We had and have no ambition to be avant or post or what else. In fact I cant play violin or piano, I cannot read any notes. As a drummer, Im an old-fashioned self-taught person and have no intention to change that at age 69. Same thing with my wife Franziska, playing guitar and flute quite a little... Our music has no concept, no plan, no composition, its all improvised and a form of communication and, as far as that, primitivistic, Music is communication, with others or oneself: You whistle in the woods or in a street at night when youre afraid, you shout with joy or squeak in your orgasm. Of course my few months with Faust in 1971 were a good apprenticeship after my drumming 60s with all kinds of jazz and soul music. Then for 35 years I had other things to do, with the exception of Panisches Liederbuch in 1988 for the 50th birthday of Günter Brus. On that afternoon in spring 2008, some years after we did Incredible Familiar Music, we had only a few hours before going to the movies. We put a very old recording machine on the table of our living-room, a tape-recorder so technically simple that you had to press the trigger all the time for moving fast forward or rewind... We began to play our first piece, then I had the idea to counterpoint it with a machine piece on Tilo Ettls apparatus and just went on with the a/b alternation of mechanical sound and unplugged music on several instruments, toys etc., until it was time to go." --Meifert, Hohengebraching, 2012

"A record of extreme poetry and sound. Arnulf Meifert was the first drummer in the legendary German group Faust (he is only present on Faust, the first LP issued by Polydor). Later, and for many years, he was a companion of Vienna actionist Guenter Brus, whose 50th birthday was celebrated with the publication of the Panishes Liederbuch LP (the now mythical first LP issued by Die Taubnessel back in 1988). For the recordings of this new project, Meifert met Kommissar Hjuler and his wife Mama Baer, also experimental musicians, but nearly two generations younger. They have been working together for just a few hours, so everything had to be totally improvised. Nevertheless, Meifert brought some texts with him, fascinated by confrontations of word and music. These texts range from the Old Testament to Renaissance artistry and Christian hate-speech from the 20th century, ending with a modern guide for the voyage from death to rebirth. The impressive and singular cover artwork was done by Klaus Holzmann, an upcoming Austrian artist. Two letters showing the discussion between Meifert and Hjuler after the meeting are also included.

"As DAN MELCHIOR continues to kick the Medway gutbucket to the curb, he is also willfully absorbing all mannerve underground cankerous crud along the way. For those endeared to wallet chains and crisp, cuffed jeans, this has been tantamount to heresy. But for thems whats embraced the sounds of "the new Dan," said aberrations are as welcome to caustic ears as a cold beer is to a setve parched lips. And while last years Visionary Pangs LP (released with DAS MENACE on the S-S label) was a grower and a half, Assemblage Blues snuffs it as if it were no moren a sneeze in the wind. "This here LP seemingly vibes from such leftfield Blighty heavies as Instant Automatons and L. Voag as well as the dark side of Alex Chilton (think Dusted in Memphis) and the 3:00 A.M. shudder of Prominent Disturbance. Within the canon of the Siltbreeze label, Melchiors magnificent malarkey on Assemblage Blues has secured him a spot somewhere between The Shadow Ring and Jim Shepard.

The din of annoyance at Dans output by many-a critic is really just the pinched wheezing of prudes, straightenin their periwigs in a last ditch to cover up nervous bald spots. And dont you go joining em; ask me, the good times are just gettin underway.  In the hazy afterburn of The Backward Path, wherein we glimpsed Dan at his most lyrically candid, comes C.C.D.E, where words are half-smothered in the molting earth and linearity is just some other jaunt. Best I can tell, its a backyard wedding of Assemblage Blues and Excerpts & Halfspeeds, with Lard Free and Yuzo Iwata on the brides flank. As you might imagine, the voyage into the sunset of these two involves a roaring mutant chassis and plenty of muddy vistas off the backroads of songform. Is that the Texas outland in the distance? Either way, the geography ahead can only get woolier. But with Dans thoroughly Scotch-taped map at the ready, theres no need to clench yer cheeks.

"Dan Melchior is known by many as a long-standing footsoldier of garage rock. Throughout his fifteen years of service Dan has gained a reputation as being one of the few in his field willing to test the flexibility of an otherwise stagnant genre. Last years brilliant Assemblage Blues LP (Siltbreeze) showed Dan scratching at the bars of his cage, restricted by the very domain he dominates. Excerpts (& Half-Speeds) is Dan Melchiors hammer in the mirror. A courageous act of self-vandalism, reducing his own sonic signature to a series of fractured sketches, riffs, and run-throughs, glued together to create something akin to Another Green World for the fuck off generation. Excerpts (& Half-Speeds) arrives in a full color high gloss Melchior-designed sleeve, with insert, in an edition of 450 copies." -KYE

Format: LP

Country: Australia

"K-85 is one of DAN MELCHIORs more song-based albums, with lo-fi electronic interludes interspersed between and occasionally through. Lyrical themes deal with some familiar standbys: isolation, daily humdrum, contempt for contemporary culture and a failure to be honest with ourselves. An occasional feigned Luddism might seem at odds with the bastard synthesising of traditional folk, but reflects more a weariness with his world from which solace can be found in the love of his wife LETHA. For those unaware, its an ideal album to begin their discovery of Dans amazingly rich, varied and consistent body of work-and as his first release on an Australian label we can hope that happens in spades-while his loyal fanbase need it as much as any of his previous releases. Let it be known that we here at Aarght Records are nursing a professional jealousy at Homeless coup in releasing K-85. This is a brilliant record." -Homeless.

"In which The Dauphin of Durham completes, once and for all, the long and complicated process of self-extrication from musics No Exit--song structure. On Slow Down Tiger the forces of centrifuge, gravity and vacuums form a welcoming committee at the gates of dark plumbing otherwise known as Beyond. The first side-long piece, "Tongues" congeals into a grand mosaic, a kind of reverse Pangaea of mostly dissenting voices: Nicaraguan poet Nicanor Parra; a clip from Sult, the Swedish film based on Knut Hamsuns Hunger; Russian absurdist / surrealist Daniil Kharms; Jesuit priest Gerard Manley Hopkins; author of modernist masterpiece Briggflatts Basil Bunting; the eternally disenchanted Alan Dugan; Victorian heritage booster John Betjeman; and field recordings of the 1990 poll tax riots in London. It is a welcome new outpost in the cluttered frontier of found-sound tape composition. On the flip, the obvious touchstone of yet another side-long track, "Hospital Poem," is minimalist drone a la Basinski, Harold Budd or Tony Conrad, though Melchiors very personal approximation of the subtlest of ectoplasmic melodies repeated over and over ends up more dissonant and darker than one would expect. With its graceful marbling, tightly arranged as if restrained by a massage therapist, this elegant sausage would make the ideal soundtrack for an all-Lego remake of Solaris. Edition of 300 copies.

"Deluxe double LP version with die-cut sleeve and printed innersleeves. Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk -- the pioneer of Continuous Piano Music -- presents his first release on UK label Erased Tapes. Entitled Corollaries, the album was recorded and produced by Peter Broderick with the additional help of Nils Frahm and Martyn Heyne. Erased Tapes founder Robert Raths knew it was time to share the great musical legacy of Melnyk, to which he simply responded: "Where were you guys when I was thirty?" Melnyk is a true innovator, exploring new directions in contemporary music. Classically-trained and greatly affected by the minimalist movement in the early 1970s, the Ukrainian pianist developed his own unique language for the piano, named after the principle of maintaining a continuous, unbroken stream of sound. Melnyk has shown a remarkable devotion to the instrument, always striving to discover new ways of composing music in the continuous mode. His focus is on the actual sound of the piano as much as the harmonies and melodies of the music. Playing rapid and complex note patterns made Lubomyr one of the worlds fastest concert pianists. His virtuoso piano technique forms overtones that blend, collide or even create new melodies in rare moments, and thereby shape the composition beyond its original form. In the artists own words: "My first encounter with Peter was at the Ambient Festival in Cologne, when I came into the cathedral where he was playing along with Nils. I was amazed and enthralled by the beauty and power of their music. The colors and majesty of the cathedral coupled with their music made it a great experience I will never forget. Some time later, Peter contacted me with an invitation to come visit him in Berlin and try creating some music together. I had not played improvisation with other ambient musicians before, having worked solo for all these past years. So it was such a relief to start playing at his studio and hear his wonderful input. He was adding a beautiful and delicate dust cover of sounds and pearly effects that cast a lovely sparkle over the piano music -- I loved it. It was a thrill to hear Continuous Music in some new clothes! And with the addition of Nils and Martyn, we all felt the beautiful spell of the communal flow as the music carried us into wonderful spaces."

"Comprised of three balanced examples of his Continuous Music technique on solo piano, Three Solo Pieces serves as perhaps the best introduction the Ukrainian-Canadian composer Lubomyr Melnyk yet available. Marginal Invitation is a subdued work with a deeply rooted melodic sensibility that is rich in overtones, while Corrosions on the Surface of Life exhibits a dissonant fury of patterned note play. The final, side-length meditation Cloud Passade No. 3 is a chordal work in free-time which functions equally well as furniture music and a meditative exploration of pure light. Three Solo Pieces is the first set of new Lubomyr Melnyk recordings produced by Unseen Worlds and his first release for the label since the 2007 reissue of his debut album KMH: Piano Music in the Continuous Mode (1979). Following that reissue, efforts were shifted from record projects to bringing Melnyks still-thriving Continuous Music alive for audiences with a set of memorable and well-received concerts in Seattle and New York in 2009. Since his popular rediscovery through a variety of releases on his own and other labels, as well as being hosted all over the world for concerts, Lubomyr Melnyk has successfully risen from obscurity and emerged as a welcome new entry in the history of contemporary classical music, as well as a vital performer for the 21st Century." - Unseen Worlds

Title: Yagua Ovy
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"2011 release. Yaguà Ovy is the first collaboration between the sublime noise artist Daniel Menche and Anla Courtis, the Argentinean experimental guitarist and founder of Reynols. Based around the Argentinean mythology of the werewolf, or "the blue dog" that lives on the "land without evil" of Mbya-Guarani, Yaguà Ovy shows Menche and Courtis at their commanding best, whipping up a cacophony of primal and natural noise from all manner of objects and instruments. Menche draws out the sound and resonances found lying in snow and rocks while Courtis bewitches pizza sauce cans and his guitar, creating this mind-flaying homage to the mythical wolf. Alan Courtis (aka Anla Courtis) was born in 1972 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he still lives. He was a founding member of Reynols and has many releases on labels all across the world. He has toured extensively internationally and has collaborated with musicians such as Pauline Oliveros, Otomo Yoshihide, Jim ORourke, Mats Gustafsson, Rick and Alan Bishop, Toshimaru Nakamura, and Lasse Marhaug. Courtis music always has strong experimental sense and is based on high-skilled techniques of prepared sound, tape manipulations, processing of field recordings, live electronics, objects, cymbals, synthesizers, computer tools, playing traditional (both acoustic and electric) instruments as well as self-built, strange and unusual instruments (unstringed guitar, for example). In a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure, Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with an uncharacteristic sense of focus and determination. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. Aural intensity is not a representation of confusion or the chaotic, but a concerted effort to provoke and stimulate the listeners imagination by generating intensely powerful sounds and music. Daniel Menches work originates from the idea that there is no restriction to potential sound sources, especially in terms of a sounds potential sonic energy. Self-made recorded sound sources, instruments, and percussion can all be equally harnessed in creating a living and emotional feeling within Daniel Menches contemporary work. Any and all sounds are possible conduits to music. There are absolutely no barriers or biases in what can be used. In Yaguà Ovy these two unique artists have come together for the first time and have made a record of stunning primordial beauty. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl in a limited run of 500 copies for the world. The long-time Menche collaborator and artist Eric Stotik did the stunning artwork. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl." -MIE.

"In a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure, Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with an uncharacteristic sense of focus and determination. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. His work originates from the idea that there is no restriction to potential sound sources, especially in terms of a sounds potential sonic energy. Subtle and patient compositions rely on long, dense layers of droning sounds, while abrasive pieces rely on sounds amplified and processed to extreme levels, pushing the full spectrum of frequencies to the threshold. Intense, percussive sound works resonate a primal chaos while gracefully reaching towards something beyond "noise." Through this intensity, Menche bridges the gap between sound and listener, a one-on-one, personal impact with pure sound. The greater the intent, the greater the intensity, and intensity is based upon the blood rising in speed and heat through our bodies. This is dedicated music that expresses the undisciplined purity of emotion and intensity." -Touch.

Title: Vilke
Format: Double LP
Label: Sige
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"For over 25 years, northwest native Daniel Menche has been involved with innovative methods of composition and sound experimentation. His formative work being rooted in noise has since developed into highly idiosyncratic and sophisticated forms, while remaining integrated with the genres emotionally visceral core. Vilké is another step forward in this ongoing evolution, and a formidable experience for the listener. Animality is a recurrent theme in Menches work, displayed prominently within four long form compositions that comprise the album. An avid and voracious hiker, Menche found great inspiration in the beautiful lament of howling wolves during his overnight expeditions; and ultimately chose these sounds as the core sonic elements for Vilké. By layering and distending wolves voices, a choir of howls was constructed -- a massive sound wall colliding with layers of poly-rhythmic drums, abstracted guitar, and piano. Fluctuating from somber ambiance to a seemingly endless cascade of noise, the songs lure the listener into a darkened forest of howling serenades, propulsive rhythms, deconstructed instrumentation, and mother natures primal cacophony." - Sige.

"Day 13. The green hell of the jungle stretches around us at all sides. I feel like I am being driven mad by the constant suffocation of its hot and terrible embrace. Everywhere, awful vegetable life fights for supremacy. The nights are more terrible for the noise and darkness. Day 14. Two of our bearers have fled taking most of our dwindling supplies with them. At least there is water to be found in the streams and lagoons but it is filthy and brown and if imbibed unboiled gives one terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea. The scotch and tobacco are gone and we chew coca leaves for the small comfort they afford. Day 15. Jenkins went mad last night. He is nowhere to be seen now. We hear occasional cries from the North which can only be him. Day 16. We found the ruins of an abandoned village today. There were what appear to be drums, much like those found in the Congo, hanging from trees surrounding the village. We saw piles of banana skins amongst the abandoned grass huts. In the very middle of the settlement we found a large flat round rock with a pile of hair, a good three feet high, on it. After a good deal of debate Filbert and I decided that the hair was of human origin. Day 17. We are restricting our diet to a small handful of cashew nuts each morning as we rise. We found several more hair mounds in the felled grounds surrounding the village. These seem darker and more like animal hair than the mound we discovered yesterday.

Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Unlike anything book or animal, the Menstruation Sisters destroy wholly" -- Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth. "Menstruation Sisters hail from Sydney, Australia. Basically a duo comprised of wildboy poet ululationist and guitar strangler Nick Kamiussis (aka Rizili aka Riz) and OZ wonderkid Oren Ambarchi (Sunn 0))), Burial Chamber, Grave Temple, John Zorn etc etc), and sometimes aided by Brendan Walls and others. Their first LP, Ma, was in an edition of 100 copies, all of which had razor blades, balloons and hypodermic needles applied to one side. As an objet dart it became a highly desirable item for noise believers (and was recently reissued -- sans appliques -- by No Fun Productions). Every once in a while an LP drops out of nowhere only to further confuse whomever is fortunate enough to grip it. 2005 saw the Holy Africa 7" on White Denim, in 2001 the infamous Goog LP on Saucerlike, in 1999 the Dead At Slugs LP on Menlo Park and in 1998 the Triple Bogey On A Ma Par Hole 3x7". All of these are essential documents of one of the most bizarre, genuinely inspired free time outfits working the avant-mind body love/noise worship axis today. This newest LP has been patiently waiting to be released for the last few years, initially a multi-label project instigated by Menlo Park and now fully realized by Ecstatic Peace. Long a champion of Menstruation Sisters after witnessing an out-of-nowhere set at NYCs legendary lost underground experimental oasis The Cooler in the late 90s, Thurston Moore invited the Sisters to open for Sonic Youth in Sydney shortly thereafter and, as inspired and weird as the NYC set was, the Sonic Youth gig was perhaps one of the most astounding question marks of music the seasoned Moore had ever experienced. So we present you Samantha (My Wack Panther) -- a new and beautiful peek into the edge of musical menstruation." -Ecstatic Peace

"By simply rambling off improvisational cycles of vocal rhythm into her her fuzzed-out vocoder, Merkey constructs music which feels refreshingly aimless and free yet thoughtful and beautiful." - Tiny Mix Tapes.

"Introducing the debut LP by Madalyn Merkey, an artist based in Chicago. Synthetic sounds fill the air in Madalyn Merkeys debut album of bizarre and beautiful phase vocoder experiments. Using harmonic voice processing, analog synthesis, and stereo panning, Merkey addresses the Centaurs of her imagination. Influenced by celestial bodies, artificial intelligence, and opera, the journey is a mysterious meshing of mechanical fibers and polymorphic organic exchanges. Highly emotional, yet non-emotional at the same time, the alternating energy is a truly lovely work, warm, and lifting experience." - New Images. Highly recommended!

Title: Valley Girl
Format: LP
Label: New Images
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Valley Girl was inspired by the agriculture and landscapes of Oakland, California and its horizon of rolling hills. The peaks and valleys of the albums landscape are made of fifteen computer generated tones that cycle through melodies driven by ambisonic surround-sound locations to define space.
Computer tones were treated with phase-modulation of triangle waveforms to control the duty cycle of the sine tone. This created a prickly crispness and coiled release that enabled frequency registers to shift back and forth with various levels of control. I used my voice and vocal harmonizer with a midi arpeggiator to make a gated succession of notes in a more controlled frequency range.
The computer material was recorded live with little editing besides the addition of silence to accentuate vocals as a separate entity. The voice was then placed in the silences - or valleys - between melodies. The vocals were recorded live to tape from a parallel practice of recording processed voice improvisations with electronics.
Valley Girl evolves from the synthetic sounds I have been generating on computers for the past several years. When I perform live it typically involves computer synthesis. With the addition of processed voice in the silent spaces of the album five pieces, I have in a way marked the topography of Valley Girl with human traces." - Madalyn Merkey.

"Various friends of mine go wild over Harry Merry. They think hes witty, a genius, an outsider, a true composer in a new tradition or anything something alike. I dont belong to those people. I think Harry Merry, a singer and keyboard player, is a clever man, who carved with weirdness a niche for himself, performing at alternative art locations and every now and then releasing a new record. Here he has one on Meeuw Muzak - now theres a favorite label of mine! - produced by Dear Listener Martin Luiten, who by now has the role of in-house producer for Meeuw - and which label does have such a producer these days? Here he has a song where he sings along a barrel organ, with a song someone carved into the organ book. There are microphones everywhere, so we also the pages going through the organ, which add a very weird quality to the song. In fact its so weird that this easily might be the very first record I hear from Harry Merry that I truly like. Perhaps because I cant stand barrel organs out on the street? Will I listen to these differently next time I pass one? Negative plus negative makes positive? Curious little record with an instrumental version on the flip - now theres a daring move. Crazy indeed." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.

"Harrys keyboard has been producing Bach, Beatles and some clever barrel organ sounds ever since Harry got his organ back from the factory. Where he had send it with the task to rearrange it so it could produce the sounds and structures he needed. Harry Merrys hilarious apearance and total baroque musical style is often misunderstood in the popscene, mainly seen as a funny gimmick. He first got recognised in the Rotterdam artscene as a representant of typical dutch avantgarde music. Like Willem Breuker uses march music, Harry uses the street organ sound and sings with a strong dutch accent and puts these typical elements in a new perspective. Harry is a talented composer being ironic and absurd, singing in his own unique way about the Panorama paper, moody busdrivers and Hoydenish Ambrosial.

Country: UK

"For The Death Of Rave, Masami Akita aka Merzbow submits two petrifying pieces of psychedelic, technoid sturm und drang. Harking back to the feral attack and pulsing rhythmic disciplines of his early work (recently collected on V-o-Ds excellent Lowest Music & Arts 1980- 1983 box set), the howling 12-minute pummel of A-side "Grand Owl Habitat" appears on vinyl after release on Handmade Birds Dark Icons series. An ecstatically abusive, furious maelstrom of colored noise is rail-eroded by a pistoning undercarriage that sounds like it careened out of mid-90s Berlin into a noise-techno receptive 2013. The intent behind it is meditative malevolence, seeking to dilate and masticate mind and body to euphoric effect. The three-part, 20-minute B-side, "Obusuma" is exclusive to this release. Here, the roiling bass patterns are initially submerged, consumed by virulent squall and piercing, frightening frequencies in part one, before the lurching, elliptical chug surges forth to struggle against the consumptive, polymetric oscillations which rain down without remorse, culminating a final battle of apocalyptic sensation between primal pulses and convulsive noise. It aint for everyone, thats for sure, but the most fearless DJs and those with a high tolerance for Alberich, Maurizio Bianchi, the most extremeL.I.E.S., Whitehouse or Prurient are urged to get a fix.

"At this years No Fun Fest, the legendary Japanese noise king Merzbow gave a blistering performance that stunningly brought together both his classic analog and recently-explored digital concerns. Keeping pace between two laptops and an amplified sheet-metal instrument, the walls of computerized droning distortion and psyched-out metallic scarping easily reminded those attending to the world of noise that even icons with twenty-plus year careers under their belts can still vivaciously channel the advancements they helped build as well as compose stunning untried sounds. Along with the recent Pain Jerk/Incapacitants split CD and the upcoming Aaron Dilloway/Carlos Giffoni split LP, Live Destruction at No Fun 2007 manifests itself as an essential audio document of one of many striking performances at this years festival. Often considered a genre best experienced live, the gargantuan walls of outer-region sonics set forth by noise were aptly spawned in-the-moment and afresh by their performers, and the variety, sheer power, and unrelenting confidence of Merzbows set in particular no doubt left longtime followers thoroughly fulfilled while those whove only heard the name thrown around in mythical regard were bound to have been left with a hearty appreciation of his genius.

Price: $25.00
"Cats Squirrel is a live recording of Masami Akita and Oren Ambarchis performance in Campbelltown, Australia in May 2012. Although Akita and Ambarchi have known one another since 1993 and performed together as part of larger ensembles, this was their first performance as a duo. Together they create a massive wall of sound that moves from the cavernous to the blisteringly psychedelic, laying down shifting low-end structures over which pointillist details ricochet across the stereo field. Akita and Ambarchis voices blend together into a sonic morass, Ambarchis set-up expanded to include extra electronics and a spring reverb unit in addition to his signature guitar textures, and Akita utilizing both analog and digital sound sources. Moving through a number of episodes, from deluges of reverberated metal screeches to rapid-fire iterations of visceral electronic tones, the record reaches a high point midway through the second side, where Akitas electronics gradually thin out into a stream of skipping chirps and screeches while around him Ambarchi builds up a dense mass of phasing low-end guitar tones, the duo patiently developing an impenetrable wall of ecstatic, psychedelic noise." - Francis Plagne, Jan. 2013; Deluxe, limited edition vinyl (500 copies) with artwork by Shunichiro Okada and design by Stephen OMalley.

Title: Something I Remember
Format: 7"
Label: Horizontal Action
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Nova Scotias underground punk output has been sorely ignored by most of the world, and with the debut 7-inch EP by Sydneys brilliantly belligerent MESS FOLK, hopefully a little more light will be shed on this systematically-neglected barren frontier. With an immediate slop/savant aesthetic that conjures a drooling, drugged-out, and agitated ball of putrescence, Mess Folk keep their blurry message straight to the point and deliver three devastating punk cuts simmering in anxiety, depression, and the delusional inner turmoil that sets in after months of cabin fever. The deranged, discombobulated vocals go so perfectly with the frantic razored guitar slashings and choppy songwriting that eeks out resemblances of discarded Electric Eels and Urinals ruination/infatuation, radiating with a sticky familiarity you just cant quite put your finger on. Anyway you cut it, Mess Folk have arrived and its gonna take a hell of a lot of zit cream and/or stain remover to eradicate their slimy presence from the ugly face of modern punk." - Horizontal Action.

"The baby believes the womb is the Universe. At birth there is a glimmer of light and a shifting of space. I was there, but now i am Here. Then there are still but 2 things : Me and the Universe. And then what happens is Other People. From a note sounded in 1960 and held for a long time, a continuum of Sound has been sluiced along a diagonal of personal ecstasy, and some have come to call it a Drone. Surrounding the Drone is a genre, and within, wheat and chaff often comingle all too comfortably. But with tones as thick and texturally luxuriant with spiritual resonance as their long, glorious hair, Messages are the two worthy gurus currently contributing to the echo. Messages evoke the womb. And when the womb smiles, it whispers Messages, and then there is the first glimmer of Light.." - Meassges. ""TAKETO SHIMADA moved to New York in late 80s and has been making music with TRES WARREN of PSYCHIC ILLS as MESSAGES since 2006, exploring a hybrid of raga, techno and drone rock. Odds are someone walking down Canal Street in NYC will hear the sound of Messages coming from a fifth floor walkup: mashing sine waves, bass loops, guitars, samplers and turntables into a storm of slowly shifting repetitions, heavy monotone low-end and smoky echoes that conjure unexpected subsonic grooves. Dusted called their Social Registry seven-inch "some heavy, humid drone, pregnant with 4am electricity and, in the end, thick fuzzy beats. A beautiful surprise, engaging even in its abstract tendencies." - Destijl. Taketo Shimada on bass and tambura, Tres Warren (Psychic Ills) on shruti box, guitar and ukelin and Spencer Herbst (Matta Llama) on percussion. Highly recommended!

"This is the third release in The Social Registrys ongoing series aptly titled The Social Club. Dispatched monthly via letter-pressed/limited edition 7-inch vinyl and digital distribution, this series presents a full musical array: the established and the obscured, the noisy and the delicate, the tempered and the experimental. The press release for The Social Club makes reference to these editions being akin to postcards, and this one is a postcard in the truest sense. It captures a moment and represents a place of sorts. If you walk down Canal Street on any given night, odds are you will hear the sound of Messages coming from a fifth floor walkup. If you stopped, you would hear it go on for hours and it would be the sound of Tres Warren (of Psychic Ills) and Taketo Shimada mashing sine waves, bass loops, guitars, samplers and turntables into a storm in between bouts of playing techno and psychedelic improv records. The resulting sound consists of slowly shifting repetitions, heavy monotone low end and smoky echoes that conjure unexpected subsonic grooves. This 7-inch collects two of these tracks and marks the duos debut release." -Social Registry. 2007 release (prior to the LP on Destijl). Numbered edition of 750 copies.

"Messenger Girls Trio, the Excelsior Salon Trio... comprised of Sir Richard Bishop (by appointment to her majesty-what the old broad did to deserve that, well never know) and David Knott (improvisationally board certified music therapist), in congress with Robert Millis and Jeffery Taylor (often known for their recreational duties in both Climax Golden Twins and AFCGT). The quartet last released a trio album in 2002 for the Anomalous Record label. Or perhaps the trio released a quartet album. After that Richard Bishop toured. Dave Knott put peoples minds back together or took them apart--it just depends on your point of view. Climax Golden Twins devoured 78rpm records and other Victrola Favorites. Meanwhile the quartet trio tape kept rolling-cassette players, digital devices, dictaphones, micro cassette, wire recorders, phonautographs, notes on paper. Edited from hours of material recorded between 2002 and 2008. Mostly improvised in living rooms and on front porches. Mostly in Seattle: on Goat Hill, at the Shabby Greenwood Grotto Studio and at the Sun City Girls cavernous Blue West headquarters, may it rest in pieces. Mostly with acoustic guitars and percussion. Occasional insects were wrangled into the proceedings. Layered. Sliced. Stretched. Messed, tweaked, poked, prodded, beaten and slipped luxuriously onto a vinyl platter for your listing enjoyment and listening pleasure by the epicureans at Uzu Audio. 545 copies of 180 gram vinyl, packaged in a custom made gatefold jacket, silkscreened, stamped, numbered." -Uzu

"While knowledgeable humbugs round the world crawl over each other to find, buy, bootleg and hype on the internet the latest lost krautrock private pressing, this German collective enters its seventeenth year having hardly dented the collective consciousness of the avant music intelligentsia. While this may be unfortunate, it can hardly be considered unusual, considering that Metabolismus six singles, pair of ten-inches, handful of LPs, appearances on numerous compilations and over 30 cassettes have all been released in microscopic quantities on hard-to- find German labels. Anyone fortunate enough to have heard any of Metabolismus previous offerings can attest to the bands varied approach to musical construction. It is difficult to name two of their releases that, on the surface, sound alike. In addition to a wide range of influences-- Faust, Can, Popul Vuh, 60s beat psych and jazz, weirdo American rockeers like Kim Fowley (with whom the band has recorded)-- this is attributable to a healthy policy of incorporating any and all voices that might push the groups sound experiments to the outer limits. With an aggregate membership whose size is believed to approach the low 30s, Metabolismus has both reached a peak in their evolution and released their most cohesive album to date." - Blackjack.

Theres a sort of haunted architecture to Metal Mountains, they morph 1960s electric and psychedelic folk rock, the right VU influence, spatial excursions, and whispery dreams into a unique whole. It is a carefully crafted album that is real and intimate, yet has the air of ease and playfulness about it. It is confident in its frailty, if that makes any sense to you.

"Its 2013 and although some people would like to tell you that the party is just beginning, the truth is that its been over for quite some time. Protest music exists only as a form of personal ritual, hedonism is the only exorcism, artists stifle internal impulses in pursuit of career mobility. On Soft Erase Metal Rouge present a solemn meditation on contemporary societys willingness to accept what many before have fought to stop. Soft Erase is a collection of monochromatic machine-pulses ridden into the blank heart of single-take live excursions, a haze of modulated delay and de-synchronized loops, of strings hit endlessly in the hope that meaning may appear... Ritual chants give way to berserk guitar overload...dark vamping leads from nowhere to nowhere burning negation and dismissal as righteous fuel...hazy prayers for rain spill out in the merciless desert heat unspooling into an extended fake-kraut meditation featuring Giles Miller on a beautifully unhurried alto sax. Cover art based on the censored art of Italian street artist Blu. Recorded at Ascension Ashram 2011-2012. Mixed by Sean McCann, mastered by James Plotkin. Edition of 300." - Emerald Cocoon.

Vocals are chopped and oscillation wave forms move themselves into long sheets of ribbon thin taffy with confusing intent. The middle ground in this collaboration has a coldwave appeal that clicks with fans of throbbing rhythmic noise like Wolf Eyes and Forcefield. This record is not noise however, more a full blown Kevorkian cocktail of reverberated malaise. The seven unnamed tracks flow one into the next with a rebounded tape smack that does not forget foot bounce, while keeping the main dome fully occupied with variable speed vox fukkk and equipment groan.

Handnumbered pressing of 500 copies. Gatefold cover with rare photos and insert with The Metronomes history by former member Al Webb. "Mannequin is more than enthusiastic to announce the re-release of both the LPs (“Multiple Choice” from 1980 and “Regular Guys” from 1985) plus the 2 singles seven inches “Saturday Night / Sunday Morning” and “A Circuit Like Me” from this legendary minimal synth band from Australia. The group was an integral part of the early electronic music scene in Australia and their releases have become a collectors item in Europe, as they are mostly impossibile to find. The Metronomes first appeared in Melbourne in 1979, initial members were rock journo-synth player Al Webb, the bass player Andrew Picouleau (Secret Police, Sacred Cowboys) and the synth-pioneer Ash Wednesday, nowdays a live tour member of Einsturzende Neubauten. Al himself will admit later that Ashs ingenuity in creating something out of very little was the key to the Metronomes sounding as produced as they did. If their first 7 single “Saturday Night / Sunday Morning” came out in 1980, featuring a real metronome as rhythm section with instrumentals layered over, instead the second A Circuit Like Me / Closed Circuit from 1980 is addice more to experimentation with drum machines, rhytm sections for both sides were recorded using a borrowed Roland CR 78. It was the first time in their compositions that a vocal had been used, courtesy of a lady called Talking Judy. The first full-lenght Multiple Choice was recorded in the winter of 1980, using Roland Strings, a mini-Korg, some Arp synthesizers and a Boss Dr-55, a drum machine that was intensivly used by many minimal synth bands during the 80s and by legendary bands like Sisters of Mercy or New Order in their first songs. The second album Regular Guys, published in 1985, was recorded after a break in which all the members various lives and careers took left and right hand turns, surely more premeditated, as most of the songs arrived in studio already written. Each writer had creative contro lover their respective songs, a long-standing Metronomes road rule, only one track had what you might call a spontaneous birth. The LP featured the next wave of synth toys like the Oberheim synth, Oberheim drum machine and Prophet 5. Once the programming was set up, the instrument tracks were dumper via a PCM box direct to video tape, a pioneeristic process which almost entirely eliminated tape hiss." - Mannequin.

"Some will find it hard to believe that a glamrock band with a gritty urban veneer came from Texas and stuck together long enough to release this milestone record. Indeed, I was startled to learn that theyre from TX and not NYC or London. Clearly the underground music scene throughout Texas is fertile with talent and enough sociocultural diversity to support any genre, including mid-70s glamrock. Metz take on glam includes some of the associated cliches like heavy chunks of chord strokes and catchy riffs, danceable rhythms and beats, and a vocalist with some theatrical influence in the singing department. Besides the obvious, Metz bring some original flair that pushes their material over the top! Instead of the lead singer getting all the attention (he sounds like a cross between Marc Bolan and a less angry Johnny Rotten), its the two or three sassy black girls that steal the show with the best vocals (leads & harmonies) on the entire album. These streetwise babes strut along as they dish out extra servings of sex appeal during preformances, which is a scarce gender switch for glam rock. Metz also provide lots of mind-stripping guitar solos and untamed organ with hovering Lesle cabinets that occasionally drift into dark and gothic sound trips. All of the music is dance-friendly and some tracks have extended endings so you can have more time to boogie while too friend on ecstasy (note: MDMA was an underground nightclub drug around the Houston & Dallas areas during the 70s, and the drugs first market many years before psychotherapists and acid house fans realized its potential) to notice your dance partners adams apple or beastly back hair. Its an album way overdue for reissuing." - Scott "Loopden" Bubrig, ACID ARCHIVES.



"At one of these sales my partner Mark and I pulled out about 100 LPs for the grand total of like ten bucks. At ten cents a piece you can take a chance on anything that looks remotely interesting. One such score that day was an LP housed in a plain white jacket called "Metz" on the Chrome Starr label out of Houston. It had that certain look that made me want to rush home and give it a spin. As I was driving I asked Mark to pull it out of our stack and tell me what he thought it might be. It was one of those ultra thin pressings like what RCA produced in the 70s which indicated it had been pressed locally in Houston at a pressing plant known for this type of disc.
Mark pulled the LP out of the jacket and said "Damn, this thing is so thin that I can bend it in….SNAP". The LP snapped right in half and man did I get pissed. He started to try to make me feel better with "It looks like its probably a crappy Disco record"….and…"This thing cant be any good, look at those song titles". I just had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that he may have just broke what could have been a monster unknown (but very thin) slab of vinyl. I got home and ran for the super glue, carefully piecing the LP back together with the hopes of at least being able to hear what it was like. I did a poor job of putting it back together as it was hard to place the very thin edges back together properly. I threw it on the turntable and my heart sank….it was a rock LP and what appeared to be a damn good one. After two songs I called Mark and cussed him out…"It sounds like Mott The Hoople if they were from Texas" I told him…"YOU SUCK!" I screamed before slamming down the receiver. It was very difficult to listen to the LP, only being able to hear bits and pieces, but enough to know I needed to find a better copy.
My search began to find "Metz" assuming that was the name of the band. I called some of my music contacts in Houston but none of them had ever heard of the band or the LP. I called the pressing plant and they vaguely remembered the LP and told me they would look through their records and see what they could find. I spoke to a well known producer/studio owner who told me he remembered very little about it but thought Johnny Winter was involved. After a couple of months of digging I came to the conclusion that no one in the record collecting world had ever seen or heard this LP before and that Metz was the name taken by one John Metzler who had disappeared from the Houston music scene sometime in the 80s. My search petered out after hitting one brick wall after another and the LP never surfaced again until about 10 years later when my friend SB in New Orleans was able to secure a copy. Hearing it in its entirety for the first time confirmed that it was every bit as good, if not better, than I had imagined. The late 70s produced some great hard rock in the Lone Star State and way too little of it made its way to vinyl. Metz takes that hard rockin Tejas spirit to the next level by injecting the music with equal parts Glam and Dirty White Boy Funk and its about time the world got to hear it."- Rich Haupt, ROCKADELlC.

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Anamnestic Tincture is a live album by virtuosic musical carpenter Paul Metzger, culled from many hours of concert recordings. Side one comprises Metzgers public debut on his modified banjo, recorded in 2002 at a former church-turned-underground art space in Minneapolis. One of his most memorable compositions, "After Milo" later turned up as an untitled improvisation on his CD for the Chairkickers label. Jumping ahead six years (and several more banjo alterations later) to side two, the glittering "Orans" gets a workout at a memorial show for the artist Matt Zaun. As an acknowledgment of the occasion, Metzger also gave a one-time-only performance -- "Dark Green Water" -- on another of his mutant instruments: an acoustic guitar with the body drilled out to accommodate a cymbal set into its face, and ten assorted strings of varying lengths laid over the top, giving it a particularly metallic and dissonant sound. Anamnestic Tincture is released in an edition of 425 copies, with an original vintage snapshot mounted on each cover." -Roaratorio.

Clocking in at nearly 60 colossal minutes, Deliverance is 3 tracks of unfiltered aural transcendence; a hypnotic raga epic thats by turns a slow burning meditation & an urgent mind / body duel. Pauls playing may summon up the spirits of Sandy Bulls searching inventiveness, Billy Faiers out Tacoma sides, J.P.

Title: Four Improvisations on Modified Banjo and Guitar
Format: Double LP
Label: Neros Neptune
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Four lengthy improvisations venture into the meditative sublime, a deeply cognitive set of compositions that exit miles beyond what one normally expects from the banjo and guitar.  Both of these instruments have been stretched well beyond their intended parameters by Metzgers design modifications.  The banjo bears little resemblance to that backwoods icon that it once was (he has added more than a dozen strings and a sitar bridge, and otherwise mutated a traditionally limiting instrument into something entirely unique), and his fretless acoustic guitar also has had additional drone strings built in. Metzgers iconoclastic approach and fluid dexterity in attack are truly unprecedented.  Middle-Eastern, North Indian and Asian influences as well as jazz and hill country folk styles seamlessly echo through his extended improvisations;  rhythm is implied more than imposed, and time seems to take on new dimensions.  Three banjo pieces here are simultaneously released on CD by the Chairkicker label.  Additionally, theres a 14:20 guitar track recorded during the same sessions which is exclusive to this edition of 240 numbered copies. The handmade covers are individually assembled & designed by Metzger and have completely different artwork than the CD."

Title: Tombeaux
Format: LP
Label: Neros Neptune
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"LP version on 180 gram vinyl. Tombeaux, the much-anticipated new album from Paul Metzger, marks our alchemists third appearance on Neros Neptune, following critically-acclaimed contributions to labels like Locust and Honest Jons. Metzger summons the spirits of musical Appalachian forefathers, guitarist Django Reinhardt and classical sitarist Nikhil Banerjee, among others, weaving a peerless, highly individualistic music that sounds unlike anyone but himself. Metzgers playing doesnt imitate raga structures so much as use those modal figures as a starting point. He employs dazzling, breviloquent string-plucks on the main banjo strings, while producing rhythmic, droning textures on the cross-strings of an added bridge. Some have suggested similarities to the works of John Fahey or Sandy Bull, but Metzgers modus operandi doesnt constitute a mirroring of those styles; rather, he composes and operates apart from their music, in an insular and altogether separate universe. In the process, Metzger transcends and expands the lexicon in a wholly organic manner." -Neros Neptune.

Title: Apogee
Format: Double CD

Country: UK
Price: $36.00
The first CD features a joint recording of the six musicians of Musica Eletttronica Viva and AMM together: Alvin Curran, Eddie Prévost, Keith Rowe, Frederic Rzewski, Richard Teitelbaum and John Tilbury. It was recorded April 30th 2004. The 2nd CD contains separate performances that MEV and AMM gave at the Freedom of the City festival, London on May 1st 2004. "After the generally low dynamic levels and relatively slow pace of the AMM trio set on 1 May, the MEV trio opened with the blast of Alvin Curran playing the sho far, a trumpet made from a rams horn, a defiantly primitive, prototypical music, fit to leave the walls of the Conway Hall, like some new Jericho, pitched down fiat. If I spoke earlier of the way in which AMM might deal, in Reeve and Kerridges phrase, with the internal, microscopically-enlarged body surface which becomes a landscape - and the same is true of some of Teitelbaum and Currans quieter use of radically pitch-shifted and extended samples - particularly that ululating operatic-theatrical voice, coming to sound almost like something from AMMs label-mates FURl - then this is the extrovert mode, which refuses any easy accommodations. Which division is inherent; as Bourdieu explains, the culture which unifies via the medium of communication is also the culture which separates via the culture of distinction, and which legitimates distinctions. It may be, as Adorno remarks, that a work of art is great insofar as it registers a failed attempt to reconcile such objective antinomies; failure then being in the highest sense the measure of success." - Harry Gilonis.

Title: Im Only One Man
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"Micah is a very little-known American underground rock band from the early 70s. Their music is a great blend of American hard/psychedelic rock style and British art/symphonic rock. Im Only One Man was created as a suite, each track goes into the next one, very well composed and played on an immense high standard with great Hammond organ, amazing fuzz guitars, powerful drums, driven bass lines and great vocals. This album you would expect from a major release on labels such as Epic/CBS. Micah is Gary Ohlson on organ and vocals, George Wolff on percussion and vocals, Martin Horne on lead guitar, Gus Hernandez on bass, and Bob Rowe on lead vocals. If you like the early albums of Quatermass, If, Cressida, Beggars Opera, Arcadium and Deep Purple you will love this one. It is way more sophisticated than other major label releases of the same period. This album makes the fuzz guitar aficionados happy as well as those into great Hammond sounds. Extra cool, extra heavy, extra psychedelic with a progressive touch. 500 numbered copies with insert; heavy sleeve; 180 gram pressing." -Shadoks.

"Before Michael Yonkers would revise the history of recorded music with the clarion chords of Microminature Love he was in a band called Michael and the Mumbles and they made this self-titled LP in 1966. Upon immediate spins, their would-be debut comes off as a naive, teenage trip thru the typified garage band moves of this era. But repeated spins reveal a darkness beneath what some dullard might be deceived by as its crisp, winsome visage. Its only to a slightly less visible degree that the Mumbles LP has the same characteristics that would make Micro the singularly original piece that is; its emotionally bleak themes, dissonant undercurrents, and recklessly wild performance. So, once again we have a Michael Yonkers LP that is going to turn the world upside down, make the college girls scream, and leave you wondering how many more times this can happen. Seriously, Pigeon Falls up here looks like a Riot on the Sunset Strip. Indulge yrself. PS. Michael and the Mumbles is on the king of all known formats (with a digital download coupon, natch).

"When it comes to local bands in Chicago, it definitely goes in phases, as no one would have assumed a band such as MICKEY with its assortment of random ex-band members could have come up with a sound this ridiculously compelling. Rather than run down the list of their various past projects, its best to take Mickey for exactly what theyve become: a top-notch gutter-level glitter punk band that runs circles around everyone else, both live and now on record. What makes them special are the combined forces of experienced and inexperienced nuances that really shine on their recordings and will soon show the world how their now signature brand of glammed-up/dumbed-down shambolic pop music can hold up incredibly well under any circumstances. Everything from the unexpectedly touching T.Rex-style backup vocals on the show-stopping, "Shes So Crazy" to the heartfelt and brazenly-delivered innocence they muster up on the already-classic "I Am Your Trash," Mickey are quickly becoming Chicagos most notorious and best-loved band and we couldnt be more excited to offer their debut single for your adoring eardrums." - Horizontal Action.

"Ive been in touch with Ian Middleton for over 13 years now, lured into contact by a Remora lathe-cut LP, I believe, which sounded similar in intent to IFCO material that Karla and I were working on at the time. Ian was a somewhat prolific figure of the 90s UK underground scene, both with his music and his visual art. There was an LP for Swill Radio in the can, which ended up on Eclipse as there wasnt any money here to release it. Ians music has always had both organic and artificial elements combined with the vague melancholy of distant beauty. With Aural Spaces, Ian has refined and distilled his processes into a gorgeous electronic diamond. To quote my good friend Oskar Spee, Aural Spaces is an exotic, scientific, and beautiful perfume that slows down time and allows one to live, however briefly, in a better possible world. I couldnt agree more. There is not a wasted moment. Ian has kept a low profile the last few years, preferring to concentrate on his work and make it better, an approach of which I heartily approve. The sequencing of this LP is immaculate, a skill that is becoming a lost art in this shuffle-play world. Aural Spaces is totally removed from the confines of todays backwards looking fads and instead points its bow directly towards the future. Fighting the good fight." - Swill Radio.

"reissue of original 1971 album on the Entropia Label. RARE and killer underground limited-edition Swiss LP has a distinctly Krautrock feel with a totally druggy atmosphere, folky with an eastern feel, acoustic guitars, flute, hand drums; I think they sound a bit like Kalacakra with English vocals. Label credits Stephen Sulke with co-production; he also worked on the mega-rare Pacific Sound LP. The music is stoned, haunting and with an emphasis on flute and bongos; very dense sound on all six tracks, reaching a peak on the final track Minima Into Space, with instrumental distortion and strange vocals creating an unusual and disturbing sound". In some ways, similar to Comus, albeit not as creepy; also similar to Emtidis "Saat" and (especially) Amon Duuls "Paradieswarts Duul". Tranced male/female vocals over tablas, wood flute and electric and acoustic guitar in a cosmic and experimental vein." - Mellotron.

"In 1997, electronic sound installation artist Christof Migone enlisted the bodily aid of a group of Canadians through classified ads and over the radio for a cracking session and interview at Ottawas Gallery 101. A what, you ask? Part ambient sound investigation and part wacked out art science project, Crackers is a 7 track collection of unadulterated recordings and clever digital remixes of the sounds of cracking knuckles, knees, wrists, jaws, toes, ankles, backs, necks, elbows, and hips. The percolating, popping polyrhythms are at once amusingly bubbly and oddly trance inducing. Cheaper than a trip to the chiropractor and far more entertaining. Crackers was first presented as an installation in a group show curated by Emmanuel Madan entitled Incredibly Soft Sounds at Gallery 101, in January 1998 (originally documented in an exhibition catalog and limited cd-r). Documentation of Crackers was also featured in Site Of Sound: Of Architecture And The Ear, a book with CD edited by Brandon LaBelle and Steve Roden (Los Angeles: Errant Bodies Press, 1999) and presented the following year as a solo installation curated by Michael J.

This is the 2nd LP by Migrantes (Jason Bill {guitar, air organ, Hammond organ, cymbal} & Caroline Vickers {Hammond organ & vocals}) of Tucson, AZ. Pressed in an edition of 536 copies and housed in a lovely printed full color jacket, this is a sublime record! ⿿For those that have never been there, the desert signifies space, sand, and nothing. When I (who live nowhere near any deserts) first visited Jason & Caroline (who live smack in the middle of one), that was what I had thought too. I was a bit surprised that the desert in fact looks nothing like its platonic counterpart - it is in fact interlaced with ropy thorned plants, crawls with life of every species, and is inevitably circumscribed by distant mountains. For some, Monsoon Moods may capture the real desert, the one where home fires burn under looming stone, where love and life flourish in austerity. For me though this LP somehow encompasses sweaty nights in 100 degree summer warehouses, ghostly drives through Norfolk shipyards, the slow crack of datura pods drying in the sun, and all the other things that have grown inside j&c to buoy them up into this warmly inviting space illuminated by their big hearts. A stunning record that camouflages the simplicity of its ingredients with songs of glowing precision and vox-laced Hammond drones of vertical majesty.⿝ - Tom Carter.
