Artist: COLE, BRUCE
Title: Venusian Plateaus
Format: 7
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
1997 release from 1/2 of the Screaming Mee Mees.

Artist: FIVE STARCLE MEN
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"These guys are idiots. Why did they make this? Why? Why? Why? High in the fuckwad pantheon stands this collection of brain drainers. Just say "Oscar Jenkins" 50,000 times at variable speeds. This record proves the whole universe fits on the tip of a needle and is injected regularly. R.I.P. Glen Hobbs, long live Pizza Hut families." - Dusted.

Artist: FOR EVERY RIVER BURIED
Title: For Every River Buried
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Often mistook for the sequel to "This Skin is Rust" (the "legendary" double LP by TWENTY SIX) due to the similar Corwoodian cover art.. but this is an unrelated release. A song cycle with layered acoustic guitars, recorder, vocals." - Bobby J. "... with enough anonymous mystique to look good in any young persons burgeoning collection." - Opprobrium. Late 90s release.

Artist: HELLER, ANNE
Title: Fountain of Annihilation
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"This is a very harrowing, very out record. The title track covers all of side one, and it is a heaving, heavily-effected monolith of sound, which as the needle draws closer to the inherent black hole of the record, seems to pulverize all the sounds and grooves and then shoot them back out at you as tiny sonic shrapnel. Side two is broken up into more readily digestible pieces, an d showcases Ms. Hellers ability to coax sounds out of clarinet, guitar, theremin, keyboard, castanets, and tapes, all to varying degrees of effect. A track like Vestigial Digit features some low-in-the-mix guitar laid under a wigged and sinister keyboard quiver. Phosphene Damage on a Primal Wave harkens back to the tapestry of side one. The tape insects of the last piece let you down and show you the door back out to the silence." - Luna Kafe.

Artist: LOW END LARS
Title: Crystal/Arcade/Supertsar
Format: 7"
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"More madness from the madman of Lars. Two scorching completely in-the-red gutbucket blues rock stomping mumblers on one side.. Ultra stereo Pong electronics bounce from the flip." - Bobby J. Mid-90s release.

Artist: LOW END LARS
Title: s/t (a.k.a Indian Head)
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"An ethereal excursion manned primarily by reverb-soaked guitar, Low End Lars plays s ome mind expanding downer space-core that either makes you feel like youre on drugs or ups the ante on that last dose you took." - Luna Kafe. Mid 90s release.

Artist: SIMEON
Title: Sleepy Eyes
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This is a plaintive and personal, yet inexplicably pop record. Stand-outs for me lie in the sprawl of longer songs like The Wind and Sweat Me (both side one) that combine the cryptic whispers and skitters of Skip Spences Grey/Afro with the boop-teet of a drum machine. Simeon is truly doing something very different, very personal, and is already far down that Misunderstood Highway. Pick him up, for his thumb and his record is out." - Luna Kafe. Late 90s release.

Artist: STAKED PLAIN
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Alberta, Canadas Staked Plain is what appears to be a toy-instrument ensemble of tiny guitars, potnpan percussion, bells, and a lo-fi dose of feedback... not too far from The Shadow Ring, Captain Beefheart, or fellow Canadian oddballs The Nihilist Spasm Band." "Super outsider stumble rock noise stoned sound transmissions from the mid 90s including Vancouver artist Shayne Ehman & Joshua Stevenson (later of Magnetic Ring, Cast Exotic Archives, & JOMF) as members.. comes with full-color comic/art/w.t.f. zine insert... " -Bobby J

Artist: TONALAMOTL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"San Antonio mystery improv troupe. Early recordings of living-room blast-offs and AMM/ESP inspired wanderings..." -Bobby J. Late 90s release.

Artist: TWENTY SIX
Title: This Skin is Rust
Format: Double LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $38.00
"The concept of the double album is all but lost these days. W/ CDs clocking in at 70+ minutes, its only logical that the vinyl version would have to be two discs, so naturally, there are more dull dbl-LPs now than ever. Of course, even before CDs ruined the format, it was still primarily used to cash in on something - the live LP, the career retrospective - but the dbl-LP as a non-negotiable statement of "what it is", not "fill it up" those are pretty few & far between. Personally Ive always been kindve into that statement - not the vinyl equivalent - the idea that said bulk of work has to be released as is because of some sortve linear transformation within. You know what I mean? For instance, I would say the two best example s of this in the 90s have been Lake & Harsh Seventies Reality. Not far down the path - & especially for the latter 90s - would be this. Its probably safe to assume that Mr Twenty-Six has been w/in earshot of both those releases, but no matter, the vectors on this here still point back to his basement. What I particularly like about this are the long, exorbitant breaths that are taken. The banding on the vinyl would have you believe that there are many different pieces - there are - but they move inconspicuously in & outve each other, like hemp-laced tether balls floating through plumes of pigmentary smoke in some anonymous, non-gravitational netherworld. It can be downright numbing at times. And while I cannot say for sure that anything on here consciously nods in the direction of fellow Texans Jandek or Charalambides, its staying power is certainly more up to par w/ them than, say, Stars Of The Lid or any of that ambient punk clone crap currently making the rounds. Go ahead & blab all you want about the Krautrock mumblings emitted, Ill still shove it in the pile closer to the This Heat records than anything else. Now theres a band who shouldve made a dbl-LP. There arent too many names to add to that list. The list of those who shouldnt have - well now, that list is very long. And growing." - Tom Lax / Opprobrium (1995).
