Artist: AIRAKSINEN, PEKKA
Title: One Point Music
Format: LP
Label: Unknown
Country: Europe
Price: $19.00
"Pekka Airaksinen started making music in the late 1960s with the group the Sperm, combining performance art with experimental music of the day. With influences such as John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen, the Sperm combined free jazz and psychedelic pop to create a sound resembling early industrial music and noise. After the Sperms breakup in the 70s, Pekka Airaksinen became a Buddhist and would stop releasing music for almost a decade. Airaksinen, who was regarded as a recluse, returned to the public eye in the mid-80s under his own name and with a brand new but equally futuristic vision. His album Buddhas of Golden Light is an incredible mixture of Sun Ras cosmic free jazz and twisted rhythms programmed on a Roland 808 drum machine. At the end of the decade techno elevated the 808 to a fetish object and Airaksinen disappeared for another five years. In the 90s Airaksinen released a large number of CDs and CD-Rs on his own Dharmakustannus label, on which the style of each track varied wildly - breaking every rule of the niche-group marketing concepts of the era. All his recordings, whether they are his unique interpretations of contemporary music, new age, ambient house or jazz, are characterized by a sense of improvisation and casual roughness that is rare in electronic music. The most avant-garde pieces of his recent output continue his earlier work with the imaginary anthropoid music of the future. One Point Music is his shining moment. Originally pressed in an edition of 120, this reissue has been needed for a long time." - Mutant Sounds. Reissue of 1972 release (just "A Little Soup.." from this album is included on the double CD released on Love in 2003). Very highly recommended!

Artist: BORBETOMAGUS
Title: The Rape of Atlanta
Format: LP
Label: Unknown
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Recorded on October, 30, 2004 at the Destroy All Music festival in Atlanta, Georgia. Jim Sauter (saxophone), Don Dietrich (saxophone) and Donald Miller (guitar). Two gloriously crude side-long barn-burning tears into the fabric of the universe -- another vicious installment in Borbetomagus on-going pitch for the mainstream jazz market. Housed in a classy stickered sleeve; includes an insert with an excerpt from an interview. State trooper-approved pressing of 500." - FE. "You know that bit at the end of the Monterey concert where Hendrix sets his guitar on fire? Thats what we do. For a whole hour." - Miller.

Artist: V/A
Title: Reportage: Spela Själv
Format: LP
Label: Unknown
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Exact reproduction LP of a Swedish release from 1970. A bit of confusion surrounds this release: The album has been credited to Träd, Gräs och Stenar, but they arent featured on it. Bo Anders Persson did, in fact, in collaboration with Solvieg Bark, compile, edit and release this album. Bo Anders Persson, was a member of the legendary Swedish bands Harvester, International Harvester, Pärson Sound, and Träd, Gräs Och Stenar. Solveig Bark was one of a few young composers that, through the UNM (Young Nordic Music Festivals), would become a contemporary of Erkki Kurenniemi, Folke Rabe, etc. Reportage: Spela Själv roughly translates to Play Yourself. It contains field recordings of amateurs playing/making sounds. Raga Concrète, if you will. A fine, rare, and lovely piece to behold." Highly recommended!

Artist: YA HO WHA 13
Title: Pain/A Thousand Sighs
Format: 7"
Label: Unknown
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Most-sincere moments of unmediated clarity/genius from improvisational psych-rock collective Ya Ho Wa 13. Father Yods spiritual encirclement and their well-jocked music tends to be discombobulated at best, but these songs record a very different story: brahmanic ascension, heart-wrenching expression, a beautiful simplicity and sincerity that shines through immediately and captivates with our first utterances of astonishment. This, my children, is the real art. Pain & A Thousand Sighs can go blow for blow with the most celebrated of the 1970s rock/psych/experimental cannon, moments of revelation that break through the cult of personality and attempt something much more universal than a simple exercise in improvisation. An essential release."
