Artist: ACNODE ONE
Title: Acnode One
Format: Double LP
Label: Poobah
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"When one goes digging into the caverns of free jazz, underground, DIY, improvised or noise music, the Los Angeles Free Music Society is a group that youll find crawling alongside the greatest artists in its under appreciated history... and future! ACNoDE ONE was created by two of the LAFMSs key members: Dr. Id and Ju Suk Reet Meate of Smegma fame. Recorded in 1977 as a hand-made cassette, side A was Dr. Id and friends and side B was all Ju Suk. With influences ranging from Beefheart, Nervous Norvus, and Ron Geesin through the whole ESP catalog, this is one of the defining examples of the LAFMS sound. They travel with ease from Zappaesque freak outs, teeth rattling tape loop drones; psychedelic kiddy record cut ups, to a beautiful bowed bass solo in the vein of Scott la Faro or Henry Grimes. It marks an important turning point in Smegmas development. As Ju Suk points out, It was a time of great transition. With only one Smegma "gig" in two years, our music was going inward. The reel to reel tape decks at the time lent themselves to wild misuse... they were very exciting times experimentally." -Poobah.

Artist: RECCHION, TOM
Title: The Incandescent Gramaphone
Format: 10" (78 RPM)
Label: Poobah
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"This project was done as a cross between a community art project and an experiment with crossing new and old music technology. Recchion wanted to make an object out of its time but still utilize current methodologies as well as older mediums of sound reproduction. The output of that effort is this new 78. The compositions on the record all derive their sounds from 78rpm records- the clicks, the scratches and samples, as well as the sounds that the record makes as an object in 3 dimensional space. **This 78 is limited to 500 made, with 100 being strewn across Old Pasadena as a found object.**" - Poobah.
