Artist: ASCENSION
Title: Broadcast
Format: Double CD
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Recorded in Jan 96 as a live transmission to KFJC in the Bay Area. The sets follow the usual pattern of jazz (ahem...) and not jazz - So Below being a feedback extravaganza of pretty much unparalleled proportions. And, whats more, its recorded through a 16 track desk, providing for some mind-blowing clarity in the percussion dept. The performances here are possibly our most intense & I admit I rate this quite highly." - Shock. "...it is difficult to see how much better they could get. This, though, is definitely their peak, their Trout Mask Replica...The guitar excess is ecstatic. One of the few cases where naming yourself after a Coltrane album is not mere hubris. Awe-inspiring." -Ben Watson, Hi-Fi News, Jan 97.

Artist: ASCENSION
Title: Five Titles
Format: CD
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Now with amended artwork (no more lightning bolts that look like varicose veins). Live & studio material, including a great piece from the Demolition Club and a sickening 27 minute twin guitar feedback duet." - Shock.

Artist: BLUE HUMANS, THE
Title: Incandescence EP
Format: CD
Label: Shock

Title: Satan, Yuri and You
Format: 7"
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $5.00
"A group first unearthed on the White Trash Motherfuckers comp. Cosmonauts are described as "...hideously over the top fuzz bass and fuzz drums (maybe some fuzz guitar too) accompanying some of the wildest Satanic tape shit/cut-ups youll have the good fortune to tune into, ultimately achieving a level of orgiastic dunderhead riff monster intensity unheard since something or other..." - Shock. Label founded by Stefan Jaworzyn (Ascension, Skullflower, Whitehouse..) in 1989. New/unplayed copies of this 1992 release.

Title: Live March 1995
Format: CD
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $14.00
"78 mins of the Ascension team-up with Simon Fell (bass) and Charles Wharf (reeds). Two live shows (Leeds & Walthamstow) from March 95. Excessive, overblown quartet improv of a generally objectionable nature: a guaranteed (more or less) affront to feckless lovers of sensitive free music, not to mention Sonic Youth fans." - Shock.
SOLD OUT

Artist: JAWORZYN, STEFAN
Title: Eaten Away By Shadows
Format: CD
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
"Its flashback time at Shock. Everybody loves the 80s now innit, and everybody positively adores old tapes of bedroom noodling... So, always keen to exploit the latest trends, Shock has rummaged through the archives to come up with Eaten Away by Shadows, over 79 minutes (value for money!) of SJ archive stuff recorded between 82-83, before editing Shock Xpress, playing in Whitehouse, Skullflower, etc. This was recorded mostly in Bristol, some in London while living in a squat up the road from M. Bower. (Mr. P. Best was crashing on my floor around then. Hilarious times were had by all.) It moves from guitar rock to metal-banging, drone, and industrial, and ends with some major guitar deconstruction and a positively uplifting organ/feedback orgy. Most of it doesnt sound too obviously like anyone else, so as far as influences go, the dedicated can ponder what Id been listening to (other than the Satanic voices in my head) at any given point. Suggestions on a postcard, please. Many cheap instruments were abused in making this music. Guitars and mics were dropped, hit, beaten with pieces of metal and occasionally with an axe, and pretty much all of it (including a good old Dr. Rhythm) went through some sort of distortion and a dysfunctional tape echo unit. Various glitches and tape oddities may be discerned at various points, all part of the musics many charms. Tracks are ordered as they appear on the cassettes, the titles (some a tad uninspired or stemming from idiotic private jokes, sorry) are off the inlays. One piece was previously heard on a Fusetron 7", another appeared as the Hydra track on the Melt/Dissolve compilation, and one was chopped up and used on Band Of Pains Reculver CD. All are presented here in vastly superior sound quality. The albums mastered by Andrew Liles, so it sounds amazingly good (given the limitations of the source material), and we dont want to hear any moaning about the fact its in a jewel case, not a repulsive digipak! " - Stefan Jaworzyn, 2013.

Artist: JAWORZYN, STEFAN
Title: Shock EP 2
Format: 12"
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Welcome to another sojourn in hell. Bilharzia is 15 minutes of electronic nausea, adding layers of bleeping LFO nastiness to a relentlessly repetitive base. I have no idea how to categorize it and dont intend to try. Definitely one of the more twisted pieces of music Ive been involved in creating. You should know youll get whats coming to you with a song called Make a Joyful Sound. Pounding brutality and a bad time guaranteed to be had by all. There is a kind of tune in there somewhere though, lurking dimly in the background." - Stefan Jaworzyn, 2013.

Artist: SAVAGE PENCIL
Title: Rock N Roll Necronomicon
Format: Book
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
"Collects Savs classic Rock n Roll Zoo strip (lates 70s/early 80s)! Pretty goddamn essential, even if I say so myself...92 pages, laminated card covers, A4 size." - Shock.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SHOCK
Title: EP3
Format: 12"
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"A mere five months after the first lacquers were cut, the latest and presumably last in the Shock 12" EP series arrives. This particular episode features simultaneously the most mentally unbalanced and "commercial" (within certain parameters?) Shock music yet. "Cycle of Aberration" is just that, nine minutes of pulsing, crackling & clicking overlaid with a demented synth attack dissolving into clouds of distorted hiss. "Distinguished Invalids" is a massive pop tune created solely to appeal to "the kids" and "the dance floor" -- 14 minutes of pounding rhythm, heavenly voices, and massive, sub-bass organ blasts. Edition of 300." - Shock.

Artist: SHOCK
Title: The Fucker/Dr. Smegmatic
Format: 12"
Label: Shock
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Shock -- the confounding "noise/free jazz/what the?" label run throughout the 90s by ex-Skullflower/Whitehouse/Ascension man Stefan Jaworzyn -- is back with a new series of limited 12"s. This is a 30-minute introduction to the new world of Shock, a jarring departure observing lessons in repetition from Brion Gysins calligraphic paintings to Cabaret Voltaires Three Mantras to 90s minimal techno, and with an incredible cut by Noel Summerville that picks up every detail of the mostly analog synth manipulations." -FE.

Artist: V/A
Title: Deep Funnels Of Entry

Country: UK

"Compilation of unbelievable rarities and unreleased junk from the Twisted Village label. Artists include: Crystalized Movements, Vermonster, Luxurious Bags, Bongloads of Righteous Boo & Garbage and the Flowers, plus a couple of special items. Totally goddamn amazing, if I say so myself." - Shock. Highly recommended!
