Artist: GOLEM
Title: Orion Awakes
Format: CD
Label: Acme Gramaphone
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Epic early to mid-1970s instrumental psychedelic space-rock from the Pyramid Records archive, said to be pseudonymous after-hours studio sessions featuring the biggest names on the Krautrock scene at the time; heavy drums, jamming guitars and Hammond organ: in short, an amazing improvised free-form trip of impressive magnitude, on par with the music of Krautrock heavyweights like Neu! and Gila. An adventurous atmosphere throughout, whether the result is hallucinogenic and jazzy (Jupiter), the heavy freak and roll of The Returning, with crushing guitars and massive, repetitive, almost funky rhythm, or the Jimi Hendrix-inspired Godhead Dance. Booklet essay examines the controversy surrounding this and other recordings first made known to the world via Virgin Records three disc Unknown Deutschland series of compilations from the 1990s, including the fact that one Genius P Orridge is named as producer of the Golem album. Its clear enough to all that Genius P Orridge is strangely similar to the name Genesis P Orridge, he of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV fame. The fact that the other names on the Golem album jacket lead nowhere only adds to the confusion. In any case, a deep and fascinating record, still fresh despite the years... and meant to be played loud." - Acme Gramaphone.

Artist: HOWELL & JOHN FERDINANDO, PETER
Title: Tomorrow Come Someday
Format: CD/DVD
Label: Acme Gramaphone
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"The second release (1969) from the home studio of future BBC Radiophonic Workshop composer Peter Howell and his musical partner John Ferdinando, makers of legendary albums under the names Alice Through the Looking Glass, Ithaca, Agincourt, and Friends. This private press album was recorded as the soundtrack for an underground film production by (later to be) renowned television director Ian Hamilton: Tomorrow Come Someday. The soundtrack album, now presented from the master tapes, was originally pressed up in a tiny quantity for friends and people involved in the production; certainly no more than 70-80 copies were made. So what do we find here? A concept piece revolving around a village threatened by motorway expansion, and the efforts of short-skirted guitar-slinging young painter Emma Stacey and a local boy to save the day, and perhaps preserve their growing love. The film is described on the album jacket as a musical comedy, shot on location in the Sussex village of Lurgashall, during August 1969, which of course, doesnt begin to tell the tale. Think perhaps of the Kinks Village Green Preservation Society characters come to life. See for yourself! For this is both the compact disc and DVD debut of Tomorrow Come Someday, film and soundtrack, together at last in a double-disc set. Chunky booklet with plentiful photos gives the full story of what we like to call The Wonderful Musical World of Peter Howell & John Ferdinando." DVD: NTSC format; 50 min. running time; color." - Acme Gramaphone.
