Artist: DESTROY ALL MONSTERS
Title: 1974-1976
Format: Triple CD
Label: The End Is Here
Country: USA
Price: $31.00
"DESTROY ALL MONSTERS 1974-1976 is a repressing of the long out of print 1996 boxed set by this seminal noise/avant-rock group composed of artists MIKE KELLEY, CARY LOREN, NIAGARA and JIM SHAW. It was previously issued on Thurston Moores Ecstatic Peace! label and is now reissued on the bands label The End is Here. These are early low-fi vintage recordings by Destroy All Monsters when they lived and performed at "Gods Oasis" in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Almost too good to be true, the cream of the crop of pre punk American Midwest weirdness. If you missed out in 76 and 96, get on board now!" - Book Beat.

Artist: MONSTER ISLAND
Title: Children of Mu
Format: Dbl LP
Label: The End Is Here
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"The Children of Mu is a group of songs, lyrics & extended performance revolving around the psychic and mythic origins of Mu, a Pacific island or lost continent (and counterpart to Atlantis) some believe to be fiction and others the cradle of civilization, and relevant to our present condition. It has been mythologized by the founder of Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky who contends that Mu was a land bridging India and Africa, inhabited by our spiritual ancestors, non-physical psychic beings. The LP charts the migration of Shadow Theater, the earliest visual/ musical form of storytelling from Mu to China, India and the invention of cinema in avant-garde Paris at the end of the 19th century. Songs on side one and two follow this migration and are performed in Chinese, French and English. Early wax recordings of poet Apollinaire (reading Bridge Mirabeau) and the first Chinese opera are mixed into collaged sections within the music. Sides 3 and 4 are a single long jazz improvisation over the channeled voice of Madame Blavatsky who reveals the history of creation and Mu. This is the fourth album by Monster Island, a four year project, whose previous recordings included; From the Michigan Floor, Dream Tiger and Peyotemind. This double LP is an edition of 500 copies with fabulous four color + metallic gold cover by ratty art genius Gary Panter. Performances by; Aliccia Berg (Slumber Party), Bill Brovald (Larval), Matthew Smith (guitar, bass, pipa, Outrageous Cherry, THTX), Robert Waller (synth, Pere Ubu), H.H. Ma Meenakshi Devi (Indian Saint and classical Hindi singer), Anneke Auer (psychic voice), Johnny Evans (sax, Howling Diablos), Len Bukowski (bass clarinet, Northwoods Improvisers), Tim Barnes (percussionist, Quakebasket), Mattin (avant-noise, Sakadda), words & music: Cary Loren (Destroy All Monsters), mastered by Warn Defever." -The End Is Here.
