Artist: LASTRA, MIKE
Title: Satyricon: Madness and Glory
Format: DVD
Label: Soleilmoon
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"In 1983, Satyricon Nightclub opened in old town Portland, Oregon. Located in one of the grittiest neighborhoods on the West Coast, Satyricon became a fertile ground and launching pad for what would be the Northwest sound of the late Eighties and early Nineties. Before Satyricon opened there was no stable scene for Portlands alternative bands; Satyricon gave them that place. Satyricon was not only a venue that featured live music, it also showcased some of Portlands finest alternative poets, artists, and performance artists. Satyricon: Madness and Glory is an independent documentary brought to you by Director and Executive Producer MIKE LASTRA. Mike Lastra has worked as a producer and sound engineer for over three decades and has recorded some of the regions most notable alternative bands. He is also known for his documentary Northwest Passage: The Birth of Portlands DIY Culture, as well as his role in one of Portlands most psychedelic bands ever, SMEGMA. Satyricon: Madness and Glory is a full color, in depth look at the nightclub, featuring quality recordings of some of Portlands most influential artists as well as exciting(and sometimes bizarre) interviews with everyone from the owner, to rock stars, employees, music fans, and assorted eccentrics. It features vintage video performance as well as hundreds of photographs from the era. The film is a culturally relevant, highly entertaining look at one of Portlands historic treasures, and it rocks! Features POISON IDEA, JACKALS, NAPALM BEACH, OBITUARIES, PIERCED ARROWS, WEHRMACHT, JAD FAIR, MELVINS, and more." - Soleilmoon.

Title: Merzbient
Format: 18 LP Box
Label: Soleilmoon
Country: USA
Price: $390.00
"Merzbient was originally released in 2010 as a box set of twelve compact discs. Now an expanded edition of eighteen albums is being released in an edition of 222 numbered and signed copies. The music from the original CD release is presented on albums 1 to 15. Some of the tracks have been edited to conform with the limitations of the medium. Albums 16, 17 and 18 contain exclusive bonus material never released until today. This vinyl release of Merzbient is presented in utterly lavish packaging, starting with a pair of custom-made foil-blocked boxes that look like large versions of the boxes made for the original CD edition. Each box holds nine LPs. Each record has full-color center labels, and comes in a full-color sleeve. Three inserts printed on textured paper complete the package. Merzbient is a collection of Merzbows previously unreleased ambient recordings. The music was recorded in the late 80s and early 90s, at a time when Masami Akita (Merzbow) was becoming famous for his live performances." - Soleilmoon.

Title: Northwest Passage - The Birth Of Portlands DIY Culture
Format: DVD
Label: Soleilmoon
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"During the late 1970s and early 1980s the Pacific Northwest witnessed a surge of idiosyncratic creativity that, for a time, banished the slack-jawed banality of mainstream music and art to the shabby bargain basement of the cultural wasteland. Northwest Passage - The Birth of Portlands D.I.Y. Culture is an independent film that examines the exciting alternative music movement in Portland, Oregon from 1978 to 1983. Directed and produced by video pioneer MIKE LASTRA, the film is a narrative told by musicians and artists via interviews, performances on video, photographs and vintage news clips. Bands that appear include THE WIPERS, POISON IDEA, THE RATS (later to become DEAD MOON), DEAD KENNEDYS, SMEGMA, THE BAGS, SADONATION, NEO BOYS, and THE STYPHNOIDS. Bonus features include a trailer, photo gallery, show posters, band videos and chapter selection."

Artist: WENT, JOHANNA
Title: Club Years
Format: CD/DVD
Label: Soleilmoon
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"Johanna Went is a pioneering performance artist who began performing as part of a street theater troupe that traveled America and Europe in the 1970s. Following her years on the road, she settled in L.A. in the late 70s and began transforming her street theater performances into what would become her signature style. Using found props and hand-sewn costumes, she developed a wild stage act that included live musical backing from legendary performers such as Zev and KK Barret of the Screamers. The DVDs main attraction is its 80 minutes of live performance footage shot on video tape at clubs and galleries in the Los Angeles area from 1977 through 1987. The eight performances range from an early and very raw solo performance by Johanna Went at a small storefront club to a pair of performances video taped by Academy Award-winning avant garde film director Shirley Clarke. The recordings on the bonus CD reveal a wacky sense of New Wave insanity that reminds us of the Residents if they were a punk band backing Ornette Coleman. It collects for the first time all of Johanna Wents studio recordings written and produced by Johanna and her musical collaborator Mark Wheaton. This includes the complete Hyena LP, first released on Poshboy Records and now remixed and remastered, as well as the songs from their first 45 rpm single originally released on Boyd Rices Graybeat label." -Soleilmoon.
