Artist: AMOS & CREW
Title: True Tears
Format: LP
Label: War Extension
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
“A quintessentially sinister masterpiece reissued for the first time in an edition limited to 365 copies. A mysterious 1982 cassette masterpiece by Amos & Crew from the Its War Boys catalogue remastered from the original tapes by Amos himself. Sailored, Dutchwifed, and highly-refinedly laid-out by Studio Shitless. Art by Err o. Large four-page full-color insert with an essay by Ed Baxter and a text translated by Derek Bentley from the original Japanese (1982). "Recorded in Tokyo, Japan on Mr Shiotas old four track cassette in Mr Kitamuras kitchen in sporadic three day binge," according to the original insert. Recorded by Amos while on tour with The Work in Japan. Not on the Nurse With Wound list! Existing exactly mid-way between the dropping of the atomic bomb and the time a moment ago when you opened this insensibly incendiary package, the throwaway aesthetic of True Tears now glows like a malevolent object in an ever-expanding universe. Its an emetic emissary from the senseless empire of the incredible shrinking man, an attack of a fifty-foot pylon into which The Three Stooges recklessly bang nails in the hope of a hereafter. Its above all an invocation of a truly plastic world. Nails are forced into each others heads. Heels clatter on new vinyl steps, the apartment rents out at only slightly more than average, and this is a good neighborhood. We watch the traffic as if alert to the nuances of a symphony, the choreography at midnight might as well be some modernist masterpiece, and the descent of the planes in the darkness, tubes of incandescent cells, strikes terror into all the denizens of the deep. So when I say plastic, Douglas, I mean consider the landmarks that emerge from the fog in the landscape of the last two centuries. Ruin. Cot. Window. Corpse. Airplane. Aerial Photograph. Fossil. Groove. Pine grove. Hoover. Hoe. And so on. And then consider too the tools that allow for the forensic examination of all that matters in the last 100 years or so, the age of relativity that has thrown up parallel universes, murder mysteries, musique concrète, detail, childhood, The Other, and a dismissal even by savants of consensus reality.” - War Extension.

Artist: BRILLANS, NARKI
Title: Narki Goes Into Orbo
Format: LP
Label: War Extension
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"A mysterious 1981 cassette masterpiece from Narki Brillans from the Its War Boys catalogue available now on LP. Remastered from the original tapes by Narki himself! Track listing: Worship Worship USA; Omnicode; Atom making a bomb; Fascist tea party; Dave got a job in the garage; Postcard from Space; Saw a great disc land; Ive got US dollars. There are more than half a million pieces of space junk floating above the earth, and of all of them, theres only one or two that Id rescue for the benefit of the human race. You know, when you think of all those dreadful Time Capsules and other vainglorious and redundant trivia - if you are someone of a discerning mind, one eye on the eternal fastnesses of our mighty Galaxy (only a suburb really, which is surely what makes David Bowies Space Oddity so very effecting for those of us born in the petit bourgeois utopia of the post-war world), the other on the profoundly mysterious internal life of the individual, the essentially irrelevant nonentity which our so-called culture has puffed up and reshaped with the vision of an expert sculptor into the soi-disant Self -- well then, if you are of such a mind, well then I say its my firmly held belief (one which I will carry to my grave, which I hope may be out there in Space, with Bowie and Meeks masterpieces alternating with a selection of out takes from the television series Lost In Space starring the immortal Jonathan Harris -- Spare me the compliments, Major!) that the only object really worth a candle among the essentially infinite objects floating in the upper atmosphere is that recording made by Narki Brillans which, if everyone in the chain does what they said theyll do and if my predictions for our future are correct, the reader of this transcript will soon hold in their hands. Four color sleeve with original primitive-futuristic-cosmic collages by Studio Shitless. Printed inner sleeve featuring an essay by Ed Baxter and a 1982 low-orbit interview by Narki Brillans from Teen Arts magazine. Label based on a original idea by Clive Graham. Edition limited to 265 private copies." - War Extension. Out of nowhere reissue of this way under-the-radar release from the Homosexuals related label, Its War Boys (Sara Goes Pop, Milk From Chelteham, Just Measurers, Nancy Sesay And The Melodaires, Amos & Sara, etc..).
