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

Artist: ABE/SABU TOYOZUMI OVERHANG PARTY, KAORU
Title: Senzei
Format: Double LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $40.00
Kaoru Abe: (alto sax). Sabu Toyozumi: (drums, percussion). Rec. February 25 and April 15 & 30, 1978 live at Gaya, Tokyo, Japan. Unrelease rec. available here for the 1st time after more then 25 years. "Long ago, when I started listening to free jazz records and was blowing on my alto, the abrasive sax sound of Kaoru Abe immediately fascinate me and he instantly became one of my hero... by then Id have NEVER imagined that one day Id have released an unissued record by him. This dream come true is now possible thanks to my dear friend Sabu, who discovered these very well recorded magical live sessions. Here, youd still hear Abe piercing sound (even if in this period he suffered terribly from physical and mental pain), few months before his tragic death for acute stomach rupture (official report, but his habit was known...). Unfortunately, he died too young, at 29 years old, on Sept. 9, 1978. His solo activity had been documented on at least more then 15 releases (between LP and CDs), but his collaborations had been less documented: three seminal releases in duo with guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi, another duo DLP with Sabu, a duo/trio from 1970/71, a duo LP with bassist Motoharu Yoshizawa and finally group playing with Derek Bailey and Milford Graves. So this new duo live sets are much more welcome. He was definitively one of the greatest improvisor from Japan and Sabu with his creative and powerful drumming, the ideal partner to let him freely express all his intense emotions. Raw energy, aggressive playing, heavy stuff." - QBICO.

Title: Mantra
Format: LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"A prison is a noisy place. The clanging of bells announcing the prison routine, the whir and ratcheting, banging and slamming of electric gates and mechanical metal doors, the ebb and flow of human vocalizations as hundreds of people caged against their will respond to their conditions in myriad ways -- to express their loneliness, or discontent, or rage, or insanity, or merely to cheer or boo a play in a football game on television -- punctuated by the shouts of guards who must enforce their authority to maintain what passes for order in such places. All of this and more is amplified within the confines of reverberant concrete walls, conspiring to make it difficult to find, much less preserve, ones peace of mind. I composed Mantra: soundscapes for meditation in response to several requests from some of my fellow prisoners. I was asked to create some gentle music that they could listen to on their personal cassette players as an aid in practicing meditation and relaxation techniques widely accepted as valuable tools in the process of healing mind, body and spirit. The challenge was to produce a musical composition that would help to mask the noise of the environment without being intrusive or demanding too much of the listeners attention, while incorporating combinations of tones and textures that may aid an individual in achieving a relaxed, meditative state of consciousness. By all reports, including my own experience, Mantra succeeds in its intended mission. As environmental music, it also seems to work well as a focusing agent when doing some types of creative work, or when reading, and to enhance the restfulness of sleep when set to play continuously through the night at low volume. You may find other uses for it as well. For all I know, it may help plants to grow more healthy, or soothe a teething baby. We are all doing time in one way or another, and the stresses of day to day life make it imperative that we find ways to generate harmony within ourselves from time to time. I hope that Mantra will serve you in this regard as well as it has served some of my friends in prison. Peace, Bobby BeauSoleil." - Qbico

Artist: CHURINGA CANARIES
Title: Untitled
Format: LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
Phil Legard, Alexander Neilson, Tirath Singh Nirmala, and Phil Todd. Recorded in Leeds, December 2005. Originally released as a CD-R limited to 100 copies. Collaborations can be a hell of a gamble. Fortunately, it seems that in the world of the underground music lover, collaborative ventures always seem to turn out to be synergetic exercises that yield amazing results. Churinga Canaries is such an endeavor: a one-off group effort improvised by four of the brightest lights in the UK underground music dog-and-pony show. A rundown of the participants should be more than enough to cause many of you to drool with excitement. Phil Legard (Xenis Emputae Travelling Band), Alex Neilson (Scatter, Richard Youngs collaborator, etc.), Tirath Singh Nirmala (formerly John Clyde-Evans of Hood) and Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) assembled in Leeds in chilly December 2005 to bang out some noise and melt the ice right out from under themselves with a warm bowl of sonic porridge. The results are two stunning long-form tracks of joyful jazz-inflected psych-noise in the vein of some of the wilder Ash Nav moments. Neilsons propulsive yet amazingly free drumming serves as the perfect background for the virtual maelstrom conjured up by the other three improvisers. About five minutes into the leading track, Under Heavy Rent, the sound is so dense and chaotic that its almost dizzying. The foursome manage to keep themselves and their sound from breaking apart into a million tiny pieces, but just barely. A Sovtek Swirl starts off subdued, with a recurring thematic element gluing the shards of our dumbstruck minds back together again. By the time the disc is finished however, youll be left panting in a useless heap on the floor. This is powerful stuff, not to be taken lightly. Dont say I didnt warn you!" - Byron Hayes (from July 2006 Review of the CD-R by Foxy Digitalis)

Title: Live At The Hint House
Format: LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"Recorded in NYC, 2000. Live At The Hint House might be considered a field recording in as much as it is a recording of an ambience or soundscape. Made on my first ever trip to mainland America to play music this is the 2nd set of that evening, the 1st set had been an acoustic one of songs and slide guitar. At the start of the 2nd set I quickly realized that my guitar was not working and rather than stop and attempt to find out what was wrong I decided to just continue and improvise with what was at hand on the table in front of me. A Casio SK1 sampler keyboard, a Yamaha SU10 sampling unit with some pre-recorded samples loaded, a mini disc with some tropical ambience rec. from Malaysia and a pitch shifter delay pedal. I was not very happy with what happened that night and when Matt Zwed gave me two CD-Rs the next day I dont remember giving much attention to the 2nd set. Five years on, coincidently to the day as I write this, I realized he had captured more than me trying to get through the piece. It was me, the people in the room, the dog that ran around barking, the traffic sounds coming through the door that was open right behind me and a whole host of magically transported tropical birds and insects that suddenly found themselves reciting whatever it was in the loft space on the edge of Harlem, competing or colluding with all of the above to produce a piece of urban exotica." -Mike Cooper

Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
"Cows milk vinyl, artworks and music by Chris Pottinger, with insert. Side A originally released as a limited edition CD-R art set in 100 copies on Tasty Soil, Creature. B1 track is unreleased, recorded in 2007. B2 originally released in 2006 on Fag Tapes as a side of a tour cassette with Sick Llama. B3 was played as a loop for 8 months straight on a pirate radio station that broadcast out of the Cloud House on 107.9 FM. Far-out electronic music for the third millennium! The track on side A is side long and totally insane (dont know but I hear echoes of Kawabatas solo on Qbico #11, could be a new step/continuation?!), my amplifiers pointers never went so schizophrenic! Side B starts with a short electronic meditation thinned out by pure acid. The middle piece is long and it grows on you, deeper and deeper. This futuristic rocket ends with a mesmerizing short track that was broadcast as a loop on a pirate radio station for 8 consecutive months! All in tune: the cover, the vinyl color, the music AND the creatures! An exhibition (curated by Thurston Moore) of Chris Pottingers fine artwork was displayed at the latest No Fun Fest." -Qbico

Artist: GEERKEN, HARTMUT
Title: Amanita
Format: Double LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $43.00
"Practically impossible to make it brief here, H. Geerken: author, composer, musician, film-maker, performer, actor, mycologist, archivist, stager of exhibitions, publisher of numerous authors from the circle of literary expressionism and Dada, lumberjack, bumble-bee keeper. During his six-year stay in Egypt in the 60s, he co-founded (together with Salah Ragab and Edu Vizvari) the Cairo Jazz Band as well as the Cairo Free Jazz Ensemble, played in various music groups: Embryo, a trio with John Tchicai and Don Moye (extensive tour of Africa) and also with the Art Ensemble of Chicago. He worked with Sunny Murray, Don Cherry, Okay Termiz, Peter Kowald, Takehisa Kosugi, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Michael Ranta, etc. Today Geerken possesses one of the most comprehensive Sun Ra archives. His book Omniverse Sun Ra (1994) , which contains the first all-embracing discography of the musician, has meanwhile grown to be a priceless cult book. Together with James Wolf from the Library Of Congress in Washington D.C., he is editor of the recently published collected poems and philosophical works of Sun Ra (The Immeasurable Equation, 2005). This is Geerkens first-ever solo release (a major event indeed!) and it was recorded under the influence of magic mushrooms (dried amanita muscaria). One of the instruments played here is Sun Ras Sun harp (a Bulgarian bandura), which Sun Ra gave him in 1971 in Egypt, where Hartmut invited the Arkestra to play. They didnt get any money to fly back to the States, so Hartmut kindly borrowed them some bread for the trip back... in exchange, Sun Ra gave him his Sun harp (which youd hear on several Saturn LPs and which was one of the few instruments that Sun Ra played besides keyboards) saying Ill buy it back from you one day... which evidently never happened. The other string instrument played here is a swarmandal, which was given to him in 1976 in New Delhi by the renowned Dhrupad singers: the Dagar brothers. Probably the wildest Qbico ever... alien sounds!" -Qbico

Title: Infinity
Format: Double LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $40.00
"This mind-blowing session was organized the day after the Qbico U-nite VIII which happened @ DobiaLab near Gorizia, Italy on Feb. 11, 2007. Neokarma started from an idea of David Vanzans vulcanic mind and with time, from a trio evolved into a 7et. Here they are with the complete line-up with special guests Giorgio Pacorig on Fender Rhodes and Makoto Kawabata on electric guitar. I had no doubt about the fact that Acid Mothers Temple Gurus would fit like a glove in this cosmic unit... nothing was planned... after three minutes David switched off the light and they are gone into deeeeeeep space... the void... the black hole... and I lived into the future. Their music reminds me a bit of Taj Mahal Travelers but of course with a new millennium feeling. I remember I played them TMT once in my place and they smiled and nodded their head... but they had never heard about TMT before. Virginia & Paolos wind instruments float, Andrea throws some aqueous meteors which he directly intercepts from other galaxies, Giorgio has some electricity, Makoto & Christian add some magical make-up, Maurizio adds that Eastern groove and David holds it all in his hands. For me, Neokarma is the most revolutionary, powerful and futuristic group that Italy has ever had." Pressed on light-blue marbled vinyl. - QBICO.

Title: Con 72
Format: LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
"Conrad Schnitzler was a central figure in the development of electronic and experimental music in Germany since the end of the 60s. In fact he was co-founder of the Zodiak Club in Berlin in 1968, where Agitation Free used to play intermedia shows, he also took part in the recording of Tangerine Dream 1st record Electronic Meditation (with Edgar Froese and Klaus Schulze). Then he recorded with Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius as Kluster, two key records: Klopfzeichen and Kluster zwei-Osterei (after he left Moebius and Roedelius continue to record as Cluster). Founded the Eruption project, an open band for many musicians (including Manuel Gottsching), various secret performances (such the ones in the furnace room of his house in Berlin). The recording on Qbico LP pre-dates the legendary record Rot (rec. April 1973), which was part of the colored series records: Gelb, Grun, Blau, Schwarz. In fact in 1972 Schnitzler toured for the exhibition Scene 72 and in London he bought the recently born Synthie A (which was being produced near London) and gave a concert at the German Institute (he eventually bring back to Germany another Synthie A for the band Kraftwerk). The music from this concert is really raw and wild, with the instrument frequencies pushed to the limits (its much more close to the classic music of concrete masters, such as Xenakis, Parmegiani, Henry, Schaeffer, then to his cosmique electronic records, such as Rot for example). A mind-blowing performace from one of the greatest sound illusionist of all time." - QBICO.

Title: If Ocean Is Broken
Format: Double LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $44.00
"Unreleased free jazz from Japan in its prime, recorded live in Tokyo in 1971. Mototeru Takagi already released two beautiful duo LPs back then with master Japanese drummers like Masahiko Togashi (Isolation) and Toshi Tsuchitori (Origination), so this last DLP is complete in a sense the set of duo recorded with the best, 1st generation, free music drummers from Japan. On the other side its complete also, the duo recorded by Sabu with the greatest reeds player from Japan (still of the 1st generation); being, his various duos with legendary Kaoru Abe, already documented on Qbico (Senzei) and elsewhere. About the music: raw and passionate = primitive beauty; both musicians are in top form and surely in their most creative period. Mr. Takagi plays tenor, soprano sax and bass clarinet, while Sabu is on drums and percussion. Original recordings were very well preserved (fortunately) and the pressing came out wonderful! Cover by qbico which Sabu can really dig, saying that En no Gyoja is deeply respected by him, he opened the way..." -Qbico

Here they presented a very varied set, starting with some electronic trance inducing music by Marc Gade, to followed by an ad hoc baroque drunken marching band live from a Poland tour. Side B starts with another beautiful & melancholic all acoustic affair (mostly stringed) and ends with an improvised electro-acoustic number of magical and fragile beauty. Marc Gade one day was reading a Shirley Collins text where she explained that true love came from the root of an old Danish word: trulofa." - Qbico
