Artist: JACKIE-O MOTHERFUCKER
Title: Freedomland
Format: CD
Label: Very Friendly
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"This is a collection of live-recorded improvised material by Portland, Oregons Jackie-O Motherfucker. Compiled by founding member Tom Greenwood, this music captures the sound of a reconfigured Jackie-O during the late summer of 2006, with vocalist Eva Salens (Inca Ore), Tom Greenwood, Danny Sasaki, and Nick Bindeman. Their first stop was at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, where the group were scheduled for their first appearance supporting the Dirty Three. There they would begin -- unrehearsed in this formation, and in front of a large audience. The plans to perform material from their newest release Flags of the Sacred Harp were scrapped, and the band launched into a free-form set of improvised, trance-inducing, punk-inspired, psychedelic rock, which became the framework of the new music they would develop together over the next few years. Freedomland is the document of this trip through America. The record consists of location recordings, captured live, and mastered in the United Kingdom. The songs were created from the spirit of improvisation, and honed by performing nightly in dive bars, music halls, and art galleries across America. Salens vocal delivery is raw and honest, the words flow from conversations, to streams-of-sub-conscious conjuring, and prayer. Guitars alternately soar into cloud-scapes, and battle like free-jazz saxophones, propelling the group into new terrain nightly, while the percussion of Danny Sasaki alternates between exploratory and dead-solid motoric. The collection was edited by Tom Greenwood, from dozens of live recordings, and captures a rare moment in the bands long and confusing history. As Greenwood himself describes, this is "truly the music of everyday life -- birthed each night in a new form, from musicians who put great faith in each other, under awesome strain at times, to project modern music, with soul."-Very Friendly

Artist: NO NECK BLUES BAND
Title: Letters From The Earth
Format: Double CD
Label: Very Friendly
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Co-released with the Ser label, this double CD outputs 111 or so minutes worth of this groups dizzying array of sonic blattage, cable disruption, tribal tranceadelics and trip or drone aesthetic. Have heard that this was largely recorded on a NYC rooftop, but you certainly cant hear any breeze -- there is, however, some serious driftage going on all over the place. Out-of-nowhere double album magnum opuses tend to go on to have genre defining significance, and its easy to see this one having research visibility for decades to come, as the pinnacle of its contemporary scene. Packaged in a slimline jewel case (to assure those worried this thing would come wrapped in tree bark or something), with an intriguing multi-page booklet of almost Gysin-esque hieroglyphics."- Forced Exposure (1996). Re-released 2006 by Very Friendly.

Artist: SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN
Title: Complexion
Format: CD
Label: Very Friendly
Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"Very Friendly (in collaboration/co-operation from Spirit Of Orr) are honored to offer you 2005s Complexion for the first time on CD (and their first UK release) originally released on a limited run of 1000 vinyl. Another psychic gangbang from New Englands finest fever dream peddlers. This record contains futuristic meditations on some proto-gypsy ritual from the distant past & hyper-realistic abstractions tailor made for the absurdity of human interaction as it has come to be recognized in the present day. Complexion, unlike other Sunburned records, promises invisible skin for the faces between your ears and transcendental pulse options for the curiously minded purveyors of a young millennium. Once again the have-nots trump the haves with even deeper proclamations of emancipation and Complexion penetrates far below the surface, opening the pores, smoothing every wrinkle & gently guiding the crows feet closer to oblivion. Complexion is beautifully wrapped in the visionary artwork of Mr. John Jagel whose work also includes the album cover to John Coltranes Ole Coltrane and Ornette Colemans Ornette LP." - Very Friendly.

Artist: WHITEHOUSE
Title: Bird Seed
Format: Double LP
Label: Very Friendly
Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"Bird Seed was the transformational album following the release of the seismic Wriggle Like A Fucking Eel, where Whitehouse first shockingly employed all kinds of new technology, incorporating acoustic elements such as African djembes and doundouns for their sound, featured also on the extraordinary Cut Hands Has The Solution and Munkisi Munkondi (recently interpreted by the Berlin-based classical orchestra Zeitkratzer). Featuring Peter Sotos, responsible for the infamous title track." -Very Friendly
