Artist: ALBRIGHT, CHARLES
Title: Im On Drugs
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"This is the official S.S. repressing of the Charles Albright 7" that came and went earlier this year. We flipped over it and sold most of the 100 copies Charles pressed up for himself and when it was gone, asked the man if we could repress it. He said yes and here ya go. In case you dont know: Charles Albright has been a fixture in Sacramentos underground punk scene for over a decade. Chances are the only band of Charles that youve heard is the Pizzas, but he has been in a ton of them. This here is the first solo record hes ever done and it is a killer. No bullshit psych punk that still lurks in the garage and has great over-blown guitar that sounds like young Charles has soaked up plenty Leigh Stephens and Greg Ginn, which he has. Three songs long, one sided. This repress is only 400 and with a different sleeve than the first." -S-S

Title: Magical Energy
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A brilliant band who were too damn good to stay together. But though they had a short time on this earth they turned out one gem right here. When they played they had every record geek in town standing drop jawed at the fact that something this good and this not-normal would be happening. they broke up once but got back together when their fans BEGGED them to! Structured free jazz in the mode of Threadgill, Lake, & Ayler mixed with the out rock of Captain Beefhearts Magic Band. Recently given a favorable review in The Wire. Fans of the Geeks or Tragic Mulato will enjoy. White vinyl in a great Troy Mighty drawn tri-fold sleeve. No cd issue, vinyl only. A sample from Rinpoche. A bit of Healthy Vaginal Walls." - S-S.

Artist: BANQUE ALLEMANDE
Title: Eins, Zwei
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"While Berlin. Germany isnt exactly nowhere, the amount of attention garnered by BANQUE ALLEMANDE since their inception in 2005 they might as well be from Quedlinberg. When I stumbled on them and was blown away by their songs, I started to wonder What the fuck is wrong with you people? Actually nothing: Banque Allemande (also known as dbZwoVier) have spent the last 5 years avoiding Berlins rock scene, chosing to play subway cars, a hamburger grill, and the like. They recorded a couple albums worth of fantastic songs, but never spread them around. What was posted on myspace got lost in the flood of bands there. They lurk in the shadows no longer. Banque Allemande has a relentlessness that reminds me of the Gordons and Rema Rema, the thuggish charm of Feedtime, and some 1-2-3-4 yucks of i dunno, name some late 70s euro punk outfit-but thats me hearing them. Their background is in the bands DISCOUNTER, TRUMPF AS, and MOSER INDIAN. Their ears are attuned to the hammering beats of Boys Noize. Or as they describe their sound: minimalistic, cut-down songstructures-yes please. rough sounds, straight beats-yes please. if what comes out is called punk-whatthefuck. Edition of 500 copies." -S-S

Artist: BANQUE ALLEMANDE
Title: Willst du Chinese sein musst du die ekligen Sachen essen
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"A couple years ago, this fine label released the debut album by a mysterious Berlin band called Banque Allemande. Trapped in a city more known for dance music than two chord rock n roll, Banque Allemandes live shows were restricted to a few underground spaces and Berlins subway system. They recorded for themselves but outside of a small circle of friends they were unknowns. Well, now comes album number two, Willst du Chinese sein musst du die ekligen Sachen essen. Like their first, Willst du Chinese mixes marathon riffage with shorter blasts, centering on a two chord fung set to a galloping beat; a sound that brings to mind the Gordons, early Leather Nun, and even Big Black. However, it sounds like our German pals have been listening to a little Velvet Underground too. Like Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Banque Allemande take VUs pop rock side and punk it up a bit. Oh, the Banques also spare a moment or two for getting heavy. This one is a little more diverse than their first album but fans will be pleased, and those new to the band will be searching for the debut. Limited to 400 copies." - S-S.

"Dont tell the INS, but Billy Bao is here. These internationalists destroy all boarders with the grinding bludgeon of pummeling sound. Two lonnnnnnggggg songs churn relentless riffs into wretched pounding and go back. Sub-metal, dirt dirge primitivism that attacks the shit nation state. For one from Billy Baos last one check out Bilbos Incinerator Embrace the degeneration of rock & roll! Fans of Brainbombs, Stickmen with Rayguns, Pissed Jeans, Drunk with Guns, etc. take note. White vinyl. Screened sleeves."- S-S

Artist: CHEVEU
Title: Cheveu
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"A couple years ago, S-S had the pleasure of turning the record freak world onto CHEVEU with their Dog 7-inch, followed by the Tete de Bebe comp LP. The label also helped dement the world by distroing their next two singles and putting out their split 7-inch with Tyvek. And now they are very very very happy to present this Parisian trios debut album, simply titled Cheveu. This dad is chock full of these Frenchmens unique take on punk rock & electro, kind of like a bastard mating of Trio, Stockhausen, and King Coleman-or at least that challenging. But Cheveu dont lose the song in their experimentation. You can even dance to these numbers. Limited edition pressing of 600 copies with silkscreened sleeves."-S-S Records

Artist: CHINESE RESTAURANTS
Title: Summer Romance
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"If this summers insane heat waves hasnt warped you, CHINESE RESTAURANTS "feel good hit of the summer" will. When we last met the Restaurants they were hand in hand with sonic dadaist Mattin, debuting their "River of Shit" EP on the S.S. label. Now with the same irreverence but moving the music a bit left field, they turn out two unique slices of summer bread. On the surface you wouldnt hear "Summer Romance" as a pop song, but let the needle ride and you will hear hooks galore, a tune that references sumemr classics by Television, ? and the Mysterians, Joy Division, Mungo Jerry, David Dundas, and others. The flip is a stirring rendition of the Mexican classic "Nunca Jamas", a strum happy dirge that brings to mind The Ex and their take on folk songs from the Spanish Civil War. The Chinese Restaurants are from New York City and are helmed by LF RESTAURANT (aka ACULPULCO RODRIGUEZ) and KEITH RESTAURANT (nee REDGERSON) with assistance by BUNNYBRAIN MALCOLM TENT, KEMP BOYD and others. This is their second 7-inch. Edition of 300 copies." -S-S

Artist: CIGARETTES
Title: Gimme Cigarettes
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Long rumored to be a Sparks side project, Cigarettes were not Sparks but an obscure Los Angeles art punk band featuring Pipe, Lonny Carlysle, Marc Question, and Bat Lucky. Behind those nom de musique were one John Clancy, keeper of the Cigarettes flame, and Philo Cramer, who left the band to join something called Fear. For years, Sparks fans thought the Cigarettes were their art/glam heroes but they were wrong. Not wrong to think so, as if you imagined what Sparks would sound like if they had gone punk, this might be it. And I write that with all due respect to the Cigarettes, for what these guys did was not only let Sparks influence their sound, but their attitude. Thus they take things a few steps beyond the influence and create something unique. That something are two songs that both attack and make you laugh. I found my first copy of their single at a store for a buck. It was beat up but played fine and upon dropping needle on Gimme Cigarettes, I felt pure glee. A wave of silly excitement poured over me. I played it on my radio show a few times and got an email from John Clancy saying, "Hey, you played my old band on the radio!" He sent me a nice copy of the record and I convinced him to let me reissue it. So for the first time, here is a legitimate reissue of the Cigarettes fantastic 1978 Carlysle/Moxie single, with the unfortunately neglected Oh! Oh! Oh! and liner notes on the bands history. S-S fans will enjoy this one. 500 pressed and  moving fast. Some of Gimme Cigarette. A bit of Oh! Oh! Oh!  " - S-S.

Artist: DUCHESS OF SAIGON
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Formed in 2001, the Duchess of Saigon were Mary and Richard. Two artists, they met at UC Davis, started seeing each other and then formed a band. Though Richard had been in a handful of Sacramento bands (Rick & the Young Rogues, Sir & the Young Men), Duchess was Marys first band. She was handed the drum duties...and good thing, too! Because she was unencumbered by formal lessons, Mary developed a unique drumming style in which she would keep the beat with her feet and play the melody with her hands. The unconventional approach to percussion, as well as her ethereal backing vocals, gave Richards VU-influenced garage-pop songs an excellent twist. Byron Coley of The Wire likened them to the Carpenters if played by the Shaggs. The first time I saw Duchess of Saigon, they were horrible. Just a goddamn mess of a band. However, the second time, six months later, they convinced me they were the best band in town and I hurriedly asked them if I could put out a record. That record is Easter Queen. We pressed 300, it  finally went out of print. Another Sacramento label, Plastic Idol, put out their second seven inch. It is as good as the first. The Duchess were working on an album, but recording and equipment problems kept dragging the project on. Mary, frustrated with her drumming, lost interest and quit. About a year later, both Mary and Richard picked up and moved to Florida and then to Detroit.  Fall of 2010, I was going through the S.S. archives and came upon a tape from the 2005 abandoned album sessions. Wow! Time has been very, very good to the Duchess of Saigon! I bumped into Richard when he was visiting Sacramento and proposed to put out a limited pressing of unreleased Duchess songs. He said, "Go for it!" and here it is! This limited edition contains 16 songs culled from sessions recorded by Chris Woodhouse from 2002 to 2005, every one of them as good as anything on the Duchess of Saigons two aforementioned EPs. Sleeve designed and screened by S.S. 300 pressed. "-S.S.

Artist: EL-G
Title: Tout Ploie
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"So...a couple years back, one of my favorite French labels -- Le Villain Chien -- released a single by a guy going by the name of él-g. I picked up a few -- record unheard - for our mail order and when they arrived, gave one a spin. The sound was a combination of world-weary French pop and mellow psych. The record lived on the turntable for a few weeks. When the Belgian label Kraak announced it was putting out an él-g album, I said sign me up for some. I got a very small handful and offered them for sale. Of course, one found its way to the record player and what came out of the speakers was one of the best records Id heard in quite a while. Like the 7" I previously dug, this album strode through French pop styles and dreamy psychedelia, but this thing was much better than the seven inch. It had a classic sound. I wasnt alone in liking it. David Keenan of Volcanic Tongue called it Ass-flatteningly great and said it combines the decadent French ballad style of Serge Gainsbourg with warped acid folk settings, industrial electronics and the kinda schizophrenic approach to genre that defines much of Thierry Muller and Philippe Dorays work. Clive Bell at the Wire said él-gsfreak flag is exhilarating. And the few people who got the record from me, wrote and asked for more. After spin number 50, I said to myself, Damn, theres a whole lotta people on this side of the Atlantic that are gonna miss out on this demon, one of the best records of the last five years, me thinks. So I wrote él-g and Kraak and asked if I could do an American pressing and they said Sure good thing and here it is. So what you get is all the above -- with guest performances by the lovely Charlene Darling and Ignatz and Phil Todd of Ashtray Navigations. This edition on S.S. Records was remastered excellently by Paul Gold of Salt Mastering and has a slightly different cover and insert. And it is available at a domestic price." - S-S.

Artist: FEEDTIME
Title: Today Is Friday
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Formed in 1984, feedtime, the legendary Australian band, created a rumble that has carried over the decades like a subterranean fault rupture; a persis¬tent, threatening tectonic shift that has swallowed anyone lucky enough to encounter one of their records. feedtime started out as a WTF project that suddenly coalesced into something quite unlike anything else going: a pounding rhythm section with a hoarse vocalist that swam against the fast-faster-fastest hardcore tides of the time to create a time¬less rock n roll sound that is equal parts psych pound, punk holler, gutter blues, and post-punk noisescape, without ever sacrificing the song to the concept. Neat trick that. Their initial period of intense activity was the mid-80s to the mid-90s. They released a series of records on the Aberrant (OZ), Rough Trade (UK/US), and Amphetamine Rep¬tile (USA) labels. So, in 2011, when S.S. Records was working on bringing feedtime to the US in order to play our tenth anniversary showcase, SS10 (where they ruled), I asked Bruce Aberrant if there was any archival stuff laying around. Bruce snorted a Yes and said that there were reels of it, but none of it had been accessed for years. Over the next six months Bruce went through hours of feedtime sessions, demos, and live tapes, transferring the keepers for S.S. to hear. We culled through dozens of songs ? outtakes from feedtimes great debut album and their even greater follow-up, shov¬el. We also put our ears on demos from the Billy era, as well as live stuff recorded in both a hotel and a hole in the ground. We came across songs that had never seen release in any form (e b g d, garbage scow, girlfriend, etc.), amazing outtakes of old favorites (shovel, fractured, possums, nice, etc), and cover versions that no one out¬side Bruce and the band had heard (Fears I Dont Care About You, Flippers Life). The result is Today is Friday, a 15-song LP, with all previously unreleased recordings. feedtime is a fantastic Australian rock monster as compelling and insistent as the best of their class: Coloured Balls, Venom P. Stinger, Buffalo, Scientists, Saints, Primitive Calculators, Slugfuckers, etc. No hype: feedtime is truly a classic Australian rock & roll band and Today is Friday shows that as clearly as any of their classic albums do." - S-S.

Artist: FOTTUTISSMA PELICCERIA ELSA
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"FOTTUTISSMA PELICCERIA ELSA were a short-lived Italian hardcore band from the city of Gorizia. I was tipped to them by a 1983 review in Maximum Rocknroll which compared them to the MEAT PUPPETS met M.D.C. in a Chilean secret police torture chamber. I wrote on Crud Crud Fast bursts of rage segue into sludge and then into total confusion. It is like the Italian hardcore version of Tampaxs "UFO Dictator" over a full LP, but it makes sense. WFMUs Fatty Jubbo once described it as wow...stumbles along like a drunken horse with its feet cut off. sorta reminds of Destroy NYC or Upside Down Cross. The music comes from their one and only demo tape released in 1983, a rarity itself. Transferred from tape, not MP3. Mastered to vinyl by JOHN GOLDEN. Includes insert with original demo tape art work. This is a vinyl only release. There is no CD or digital download." -S-S.

Artist: GEEKS, THE
Title: Too Fat Pig / Visiting Day At San Quentin
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"The Geeks were a collection of Mendocino/San Francisco freaks that bridge the gaps between psych, free jazz and art punk from 1965 to 1981. They released 2 records when they were around, both pretty damn rare. We stumbled on them, tracked them down, and got a 7⿝s worth of archival stuff, which we made into SS005 in 2004. After that came out head Geek Radley H. sent us another collection of unreleased stuff and after a year or two of shock, we wiped the glaze from our eyes and got this pup together. These cuts were recorded in 1979 & 1980 and both have a seemingly subdued intensity to them. Too Fat Pig, sung by 15 year old Lydia Kindheart, sounds like the Inflatable Boy Clams done by some revolutionary free jazz ensemble. For many years the Geeks lived in a house across the way from San Quentin State Prison and would watch relatives line up to visit their imprisoned family members, hence Visiting Day at San Quentin, one of the angriest, creepiest, most intense songs Ive ever heard. We are really proud to present another Geeks record and will be happy when we do another. 450 pressed." - S-S.

"Man o man, is this what it is like to give birth? The puppy was conceived last year and, through much pain and language snafus, it is finally being birthed. So what does this little monster sound like? Ahhhh lets go back in time to 1983 and a place called Europe where tons of DIY bands were releasing their take on gloomsters like Joy Division, Crisis, and the Cure. The sounds were a bit more primitive than that Holy Trinity, and also rawer and wilder. Fast forward to now and that sound is currently being tapped into by Frustration and now HIS ELECTRO BLUE VOICE, a mysterious trio from Lake Como, Italy. Much more emotive than their Paris cohorts, fronted by a semi-unhinged, charmingly incoherent vocalist, HEBV teeters on the edge and twists into odd deconstruction of their songs.

The four guys who make up the Ones have a wretchedly fine angle on rock & roll that constantly spellbind the folks at the Captains Mistress. Whose dat sound like they ask. The same question comes up when the fellas take the stage at Shanty Days. But editor Lee Lawrenz of the Kewaunee County News knows whats up. He writes, You might listen to Hue Blancs Joyless Ones and think, That sounds like the Scientists, or I think they stole that from the Gibson Bros., or That boss sound reminds me Neil Young with a flame in his ass and youd be right and wrong. The Joyless Ones are all that and none of that, too. They are Algoma boys and we are proud of them. This is Hue Blancs third record. Previously they released a 7on Trick Knee and then a LP on P Trash. We think this one is the best yet. White vinyl. Some of Venice Sun. A smidge of Bloody Nights... A diddle of Fer de Lance."- S-S

Firmly standing in the puddle created by Crime, Flipper, Fang, and the Fuck-Ups, Life Stinks is the proper negative reaction to the rapid take over of San Francisco by cyber douchebags. Cool, dark, bad attitude with a groove (and a nod to Velvet Underground). They have a single on Totally Punk which is aces, a nice slap in the face. Producers MIKEY YOUNG and KELLEY STOLTZ  have taken that face slap and turned it into a gut punch. Blow for blow, this is one of the best punk rock & roll albums to come out of the Bay Area in at least a decade." -S-S.

Artist: LOS LLAMARADA
Title: Gone Gone Cold
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Gone Gone Cold marks Los Llamaradas third and final album. Since their first album on S.S., The Exploding Now!, Llamarada has made some of the most striking psychedelic punk of the last decade. In the spirit of Red Crayola and 13th Floor Elevators, Llamarada approach to psych is devoid of rules, trends, or convention. Like Mars, they feel their way through sound, finding songs in the playing. However, while The Exploding Now! and their second album, Take the Sky, reflect the bands (then) excitement with their future and possibility, Gone Gone Cold looks at present day Mexico and its never-ending drug war. On Gone Gone Cold, fans of Los Llamarada will hear their oft-noted claustrophobic sound, but the songs a less settled than before. Confusion trumps structure, until a riff or pulse builds in intensity and the song enters into panic. Or a song starts at a panicked pace and unravels into a single phrase. There still is the subverted surf-guitar and male/female chant/vocals, but the drums are stronger and keyboards more insistent -- sounds desperate for a way out." S-S

Title: Restless Light
Format: 7"

Price: $5.50
"Its been a couple years and some since the world has heard from LOS LLAMARADA. Aside from some emails back and forth describing the deterioration of Llamaradas hometown, Monterrey, under siege in the Drug War, I hadnt heard from out friends down south. Then in Fall 2010 I received nine cassette tapes full of Llamarada recordings, pretty much most of the stuff theyd been working on over the last two years. I spent the next few days going through them, quickly realizing that there was more material than an album could handle. So Llamarada and I plucked out a couple of killers for a 7" (and started working on the other cuts for a full length later in 2011). To start, Llamarada gives us their jump on Rezo Por Voz, a classic by Argentinian rock legends Luis Alberto Spinetta and Charly Garcia. In the Llamarada way, what you hear of Rezo Por Voz in The Restless Light are hints and dustings of the original. This is no straight cover, but a psych punk romp of claustrophobic proportions. Flip the single over and we have A Current, an original taut and moody, a guitar drones spaghetti western style over a tense plain. Drop this into the opening scene in El Topo and I wouldnt complain. Cover art by HERLA ALARCON. 500 pressed."-S.S.

Artist: LOW RED CENTER
Title: Low Red Center
Format: 10"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"S.S. Records is really happy to release vinyl debut of Low Red Center. While their sound centers around electronics, to call them a minimal synth band or electronica or post-punk is selling them short. Low Red Center not only have a great sound, but they have great songs, and a couple of ace singers. Originally a studio project, in 2004 Low Red Center morphed into an improvised group. Containing members of Voxtrot, Oblong Boys, Pataphysics, Spoon, NonoBangBang, and other Austin bands, LRC staged shows that involved heavy costuming, theater, dance, and, of course, music. Eventually, many of these improvised pieces were molded into songs. In the words of Chad A., The object of Low Red Center is an exercise in improvisation and communication. Surprising ourselves as musicians by experimenting and discovering on stage, in front of an audience is of our goals. Restraint and listening are our approach to playing. A dedication to succinct presentation prevents unwanted jamming and convinces the audience that what we are performing are practiced, pre-written songs. The sound we have in mind is minimal and somewhat alien, with a vague film noir feel. This tension is frequently broken with a faster, more jagged post-punk approach. The recordings present a studio translation of our live principals, but with the luxuries of production embellishment and craft. Everything was performed (no sequencing) on analog electronic synthesizers, acoustic instruments, and electric guitar and bass. All the drum machines were actual individual organisms, breathing with us in the studio--nothing was sampled and rearranged. No computers were used. Influenced by Cluster, John Foxx, Tuxedomoon, Bruce Haack, Crash Course in Science, Silver Apples, Raymond Scott, and Goblin, you can also hear Relando & the Loaf, Devo, the Plastics and others in their sound." - S-S.

Title: Walk To The Fire
Format: Double LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"Long considered a classic by music freaks and much sought after by modern psych nodes, the remastered reissue of MONOSHOCKs monster has been anticipated for quite some time...and now it is here. Monoshocks roots lie in Isla Vista, a charming student ghetto stuck on Californias Central Coast. It was there that UMBILICAL CHORDS, a punk quartet who shot snot on the year 1987, were born. Scrappy and snotty, the Chords were led by guitarist GRADY RUNYAN. By 1988 the Chords were gone and Runyan, SCOTT DERR and RUBIN FIBERGLASS formed Monoshock taking garage blargh into realms previously occupied by the Stooges, Amon Duul II, Hawkwind, Blue Cheer, and other proponents of punkoid psychedelia or psychedelic punk or just good and loud rock & roll music. Later joined by ALUMINUM QUEEN on saxophone and DOUG PEARSON on all things Doug Pearson, Monoshock recorded three singles (on Womb, Blackjack, and Bag of Hammers) and a now legendary double album called Walk to the Fire (Blackjack). The 1995 release of their magnum opus also coincided with the end of the band. Praised by a handful of people at the time, Walk to the Fire didnt really start getting its due until Julian Cope featured it on his website Head Heritage, bands such as Comets on Fire and the Wooden Shjips started referencing Monoshock as an influence, and S.S. Records assembled a CD anthology of Monoshocks singles, compilation tracks and demo recordings (2004s Runnin Ape-like from the Backwards Superman). Since its release Walk to the Fire has been hailed as a "barbarian classic" by Julian Cope (who also wrote that "Monoshock was to rocknroll what those Miles Davis 1975 wa-everything Japan-release-only double-vinyl monsters (Get Up With It, Agartha, Dark Magus) were to jazz. That is, superfluous to the fucking intellectuals but spiritual carbohydrates for the ones who knew". Remastered from the original tapes-the result is a much better sounding record than the original pressing. Those fortunate enough to see their recent "reformation" show at the S.S. 2 Festival have universally agreed the band was "face melting." Includes an insert with liner notes and photos." -S-S.

"Its been ten months since the Nothing Peoples debut album Anonymous came out and since then weve heard nothing but praise. In fact, the record wound up on many a Best of 2008 list. We are thinking that Late Night, their second full length, is gonna make even more people happy. From the sci-fi, psych, proto punk bombast of the first, the Nothing People shift gears into a moodier, darker, and creepier existence. Here you get the influence of Dream Syndicates Karl Precoda and the later f-ed up work of Scott Walker. The record does sound like a late night, on a deserted highway, maybe somewhere around the farm town of Orland, CA, where these three -- nope four (they added a former Monoshock keyboardist!) -- are from. And that cover art? It is by Ilth. The Nothing People have released singles on S.S. and HozAc, as well as the aforementioned Anonymous, which is now in its second pressing." -S-S

Title: Parabolic Rock - 1975-1982
Format: Double LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"From their wine-soused, Magic Band obsessed roots to their art-rock/new wave end some ten years later, OZZIE made some fantastic music. They built up substantial followings in Sacramento, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. They were a Mabuhay Gardens regular, sharing the bill with bands like the Weirdos, The Sleepers, VOM, and the Nuns. In Sacramento, they played with everyone from the Rutabaga Boogie Band and the Talking Heads to the Nerves and the Fleshtones. However like many bands of the time, their limited output (only three 7-inches during their lifetime) and difficulty fixing them to one musical subgenre led to their obscurity and ultimately them being forgotten. In the early 90s, S.S. stumbled upon Ozzies 1977 debut single, "Android Love," and flipped. He tracked down one of the bands main members, WILLIAM FULLER, and struck up a friendship with him. A decade later S.S. tosses Fuller the idea to reissue "Android Love" single with a different B side. Fuller digs out some reel to reel tapes, an act that starts a multi-year odyssey through the Ozzie archives. The proto-punk meets glam wildness what made "Android Love" (produced by PUBLIC NUISANCE/TWINKEYZ DAVID HOUSTON) such a great song was present in the tapes, but there was more: Massive doses of Blue Oyster Cult inspired hard rock brilliance, Roxy Music glam drama, Sparks-like art, Bomp! Records-worthy power pop, edgy new wave that recalls the Suburban Lawns, and mid-Seventies-style underground rock sounds that thrill any collector of private press obscurities, all with a Keith Moon/Jethro Tull inspired drummer. By the time, S.S. was done digging through the archives, hed assembled a solid double album worth of unreleased and live material, as well as alternative tracks and a few gems from Ozzies previously released stuff. Complete with a full history of the band, lots of photos, and archival images The Parabolic Rock: 1975 - 1982 is the definitive document of Sacramentos forgotten band, one worthy of mention with Sacto underground icons Public Nuisance, the Twinkeyz, and Tales of Terror." -S-S

Title: Live! At The Butchery With Special Guests on Fire
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Prisoners Go Go Bands one and only record is a remarkable thing. It was created in the early 1980s in a South Africa under apartheid, which was not only hostile to “race mixing,” but culturally conservative, as well. While punk and alternative music existed, it received scant attention by major labels and no radio airplay. Distribution through record stores was limited to commercial music. Certainly, a mixed-race band influenced by Can, Red Crayola, Pere Ubu, Henry Cow, and Derek Bailey was not prime for mainstream hearing. Nor was Johannesburg in 1981 exactly the most inviting place for such a band to release its own record. But that is what the Prisoners Go Go Band did. In 1979, Yunus Momoniat, Iqbal Momoniat, and Neil Goedhals formed a friendship which lead them to playing music. They called themselves the Prisoners Go Go Band. They never played a live show - neither the music they played nor the ethnic make up of the group allowed for that - but they did record their music. In a desolate part of Johannesburg, in Yunuss DIY recording studio, the three drafted some friends (the “special guest on fire”) and recorded hours worth of songs and sounds. From that they came up with an album and had it pressed up as a LP. However, through mishaps and circumstance, it was a record few people got to hear and even fewer possessed - less than 100 copies were circulated. In 2007, a long-time fan of the label, a South African, tipped S.S. to Neil Goedhals solo work (to be released on S.S. at a future date). Goedhals was a conceptual artist and guitarist for the great SA post- punk band KOOS. He took his life in 1991, but left a lot of great music. Dutch writer Fred de Vries was introduced to S.S. De Vries has written about Goedhals and KOOS. He also turned us on to Prisoners Go Go Band. Upon first listen, it was obvious that Live! At the Butchery with Special Guests on Fire deserved a second life. Hell, it was one of those records that belonged on the Nurse With Wound list and in every Mutant Sounds fans library. And it certainly would have a good home on S.S. Records. Four years ago we started to make that happen, and now it exists. Live! At the Butchery with Special Guests on Fire has been mastered from one of the few clean copies of the original record. The original handmade packaging has been recreated tob be as close to the original as possible. Liner notes telling the story of the record, culled from the words of one of the band members, are included. This pressing is of 330." - S-S.

Title: Hard Blood Shock
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Of all the former Eastern Bloc countries, Yugoslavia (and Croatia in particular) had one of the most exciting and innovative punk/underground rock & roll scenes and the legend among Yugo/Croat punk legends is SATAN PANONSKI (nee IVICA CULJAK). Starting with pioneering, late-70s, Yugo punk band POGREB X, through incarceration, a solo career and an untimely death by a mysterious bullet during the Croatian War of Independence, Satan Panonski literally cut his way into E. Euro punk history. His stage act was an extreme blend of punk shock and Auto-Destructiv performance. His music is a vivid mix of KBD-style punk, Serbo-Croatian folk melodies, and jags into abstract avant punk. Three cassettes were released during his life (and shortly after his death), one of which made it to vinyl. The vinyl is now very collectible. SS has culled through dozens of songs and come up with the creme de la punk, all transferred from the original tapes. Vinyl mastering by JOHN GOLDEN makes Satan Panonski sound the best he has ever sounded. This also includes much of Ivica Culjaks art, new lyric translations, a long biographical essay, and plenty of photos, all in a 16-page booklet. There is no CD or digital download." -S-S.

"Originally released on CD in 2002 by Psych-O-Path, Michigan Haters never got a proper vinyl release. So after years of Sightings and SS talking about doing a single, I finally said "Hey, Michigan Haters needs to be in vinyl. Let me do it!" The record being one of the bands favorites, they said "Certainly"...a combination of sounds which one reviewer likened to "a storm of knives." The overblown intensity was joined by abrasive twists and subtle unconventionalities. This is like listening to Terry Riley and Steve Reich though a Big Muff at 110 decibels. With Michigan Haters, Sightings started on what would become nearly a decade long reinvention of the rock & roll song." -S-S

Price: $5.50
"Back in 1986 a few guys got together in London-town in order to form a band. They ran an ad in the NME and found themselves a singer. They went through a couple drummers, played a bunch of gigs, released a few records, and called it quits. The band was forgotten by all but fans, friends, and a few music freaks. Fortunately, this band had some live footage that made it to the internet...and that live clip made tens of thousands of music fans say Guh-guh-guh-GAH! The band is the SPERM WAILS. While prominent in Englands Camden Noise-core Scene and having toured with the legendary My Bloody Valentine, the Wails sister band, the SW didnt get much of a listen outside of Merry Ol. Their three records (Boy Hairdresser 12", Carry-On 7", and Grim/Stroke flexi disc) were self-released and never got the run they deserved. And as far as I know, they never made their way off of Monkey Island. If you would have asked the S.S. Records brain trust about the Sperm Wails, you would have gotten a blank stare. That is until the Lady Chatterley surfaced. Propulsive punk rock with post-punk chops and one hell of an edge, Lady C. showed a band that could have held their own to any of the eras heavyweights (Big Black, UT, Sonic Youth, etc.). S.S. figured Gotta have record. Problem was finding it. Lady C. had been released but in short run as a freebie with some obscure fanzine. The song was crammed on the record with three tunes by others and that was not right! Former members of the band were tracked down and begged for the right to release Lady Chatterley in proper form, as the A-side of a 7". After much searching some Wails dug up an unreleased gem called Mr. Wonderful, a twisted piece of Fall-pop. And that we called the B-side. The Sperm Wails broke up in 1989. Members remained active in Londons music scene, playing in bands like SPECTREMAN and THE LONDON DIRTHOLD COMPANY. Currently, a couple former Sperm Wailers are playing in the band BLOWHOLE (not the free jazz band of the 1990s). 500 pressed."-S.S.

Theyve played SXSW a few times, Cropped Out, Gonerfest, and a couple stages at Fun Fun Fun. They have played live on WFMU and KDVS and get good rotation at college stations across the US. They have an increasing fan base in Europe, Australia and Japan. In 2014, they have their sights set on touring Europe and the West Coast.

"Spray painted lines on a piece of cardboard is as simple as "art" can get. But you get to looking at it and you see contrasts, textures, spacing, and other things enhanced by a simple direct approach, things that get lost in a mess of images and muscular "creativity." This is the rule of less is more. Apply it to rock & roll and it is a rule that Austins SPRAY PAINT lives by. Following in the grand tradition of Wire, the Urinals, and the Icky Boyfriends, Spray Paint takes rock & roll and minimizes it to a few ungrandiose riff perfectly placed, catchy and energetic. Spray Paint puts all what is needed into a song and nothing more. It is an approach which made for a great debut single (on S.S. and sold out quickly) and an even better follow up. Spray Paints "Spock Fingers" b/w "Pink Pus" 7" is their second record and is even better than the first. "Spock Fingers" is riled up, punk energy in a wire-frame, wearing a spikey hat. "Pink Pus" is a mid tempo grumbling tumbler. Both songs are excellent and housed in a spray painted and stamped sleeve, in a limited run of 300 and on S.S. Records." -S-S.

"S.S. Records is pleased to present the first vinyl edition of the FM-BX Society Tape Vol. 1. Originally released in 1981 only on cassette, with a limited run of 200, FM-BX V1 was the first in a series of compilation tapes released by the staff of a radio station in Brussels, Belgium. Needless to say, not many tapes made it around, and very few survive today. Id say that is a shame but with this vinyl release, the word will get out about the bands on this tape, albeit a few decades after its initial release! FM-BX V1 features three bands, two from Belgium, one from Scotland. The Belgium bands are Isolation Ward and Unit 4. Isolation Ward are known in underground synth collector circles, as they had a bit of a run after their debut on this release. Bleak and futuristic, Isolation Ward fuse post punk with early 80s synth sounds and a DIY approach. The stars of FM-BX are the all-woman foursome Unit 4. Little is known about the band or their current whereabouts. No problem because their music is all you need to tell you that they had something special going. By their sound, the influences are obvious: Kleenex, Delta 5, and the Raincoats all reverberate here though less slick than any of those bands. Unit 4s aesthetics are more akin to the Petticoats and, at times, the Shaggs. This is truly wonderful punk rock. From Scotland comes the Topplers. Great stuff.

"Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons is not only a great collection of punk-induced psychedelia, as heavy as anything can be without sludging to death; it was also the best thing Yonkers had done since Microminiature Love, and a high point of the Blind Shake. A few years later Yonkers and the Shake got together for a brief split/collaborative album on Learning Curve Records. Good stuff but not quite as powerful as the two aforementioned monsters. Now comes Period, Michael Yonkers and the Blind Shakes first full album together since Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons and their best yet. Like Yonkers and the Shakes previous work, Period is tuneful and heavy and punk and psychedelic, but there is also something more. The album has an energy which is dark but not sinister. Yonkers lyrics are intense, even painful, but his voice is strong. The swirl of sound created by his homemade guitar is other worldly, and when woven into the guitar/baritone guitar/drum throb and punch created by the Blind Shake, Period is nothing less than great. Seriously, after six straight months of listening to Period, I rank it up there with such classics of heavy weirdness as Von Lmos Future Language, High Rise II, and Monoshocks Walk to the Fire. Period is even worthy of a listen next to Blue Cheers Vincebus Eruptum. Period by Michael Yonkers with the Blind Shake will stand as a classic. I am sure of that.

"Recorded while DAMON MCMAHON was living as an expatriate in China, AMEN DUNES presents seven new stunning works of sunlit haziness. During the two years he lived abroad, he lived most of the time in an apartment on the north end of Beijing. He tracked these songs one summer in that apartment. With the exception of "Diane" and "Murder Dull Mind," all of these songs were recorded in one take and are completely improvisational; on repeated listens though, there is a pop-ness to these songs amidst the improvisation. The title track in particular, a melodic mantra-like work could certainly function on its own as a single. Although the songs have a bit less pre-written structure than Amen Dunes previous work on the Locust label, they are still every bit as miraculous. The geographical influence on his work central to both writing and recording conditions is evident here as these songs are way more open, and generally more free than his debut Dia (recorded in 2006 in a Catskills cabin) was. A bit less psych freak out and a bit more dark folk vibe throughout." - Sacred Bones.

Their debut 12-inch EP Wooden Glove, was released last spring on Captured Tracks and sold out shortly after, having been instantly well-received among tough critics and keen listeners alike. Cooks jangly guitars stay back in the cut and let Fogels vocals (and the occasional fuzzy lead, saxophone, synth line, and handclap) wash over the tunes. Their collaborative work appears live with the help of drummer JONAH FALCO (Fucked Up, CAREER SUICIDE) and a rotation of starry guest bassists. Though live shows have been scarce, owing to the members involvement with a number of other disparate projects, the band made their live debut a short time ago and found time to play the Sacred Bones label showcase at SXSW." - Sacred Bones.

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"For the quickly ascending career of the BLANK DOGS, this 12-inch marks another ringer, and already their fourth release of 2007, clearly showing an impeccable work ethic with no signs of stopping. Each record sounding more unique and far out than the last, this brand new 12-inch EP on Sacred Bones shows the Blank Dogs evolving into a full-on goth-gone wrong killing machine, yet they dont need to get nasty. The effects the vocals reverberate through will cause instant nausea when exposed to the elderly and the weak, yet underneath lie those keenly disguised pop hooks that stick with you long after the record stops. If Death Pop was ever really a term, the Blank Dogs now own it, yet their wrong wave wanderings can entertain fringe psych-heads just the same, hence their growing appeal across genre boundaries."-Victim Of Time.

Price: $14.00
"Alone Together is the debut release from Childrens Hospital. If their despondent sounds remind you of something you may have once heard its because this is the latest project from the A-Frames/Intelligence/Rodent Plague/afcgt axis. Reminiscent of the brooding and gray skyline of their hometown of Seattle the duo hover between abstract soundscape compositions, Jandek inspired bouts of melancholy droned out dementia, and stripped apart abrasive punk...often combining several of these forms at once. If recent Rodent Plague releases on Killshaman and Jerkave Tapes are any indication it would be ill-advised to sleep on Childrens Hospital. " - Sacred Bones.

Artist: CULT OF YOUTH
Title: Cult Of Youth
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Born out of a love for the post-industrial music and culture that had inspired him ever since he had first discovered music as a teenager, Cult of Youth began as a series of home recordings by founder Sean Ragon. Ragons solo Cult of Youth project released a 7-inch and then one full length on then fledgling Dais Records (also responsible for introducing the world to Cold Cave and releasing Genesis P-Orridges pre-Throbbing Gristle recordings for the first time). The early recordings seemed to strike a chord with many people who felt alienated by the cultural irony and lo-fi slacker mentality that was ever present in independent music at the time. Adding three permanent members to the line-up: performance artist/director/painter/occult scholar Micki Pellerano on bass, machinist drummer Glenn Maryanski, and the violin virtuoso/goddess Christiana Key. (Keys brilliant string arrangements were recently featured on new Zola Jesus single “Poor Animal.”)
This is their first album as a proper band, produced by Chris Coady and mixed by Swans producer Kevin McMahon; its an ideal realization of the amazing potential this new full band line-up. It is a neo-folk masterpiece, perhaps the first of its kind from an American band. Although still rooted in the acoustic guitar driven Teutonic chants of the early material, the focus has changed and the scope is broader. Cult of Youth shifts from delicate pagan folk music reminiscent of Paul Giovannis landmark soundtrack to The Wicker Man, to hazy Turkish psychedelic passages, and even to the rugged Americana of traditional country music. This debut is an unapologetic and unabashed search for a spiritual identity in an increasingly homogenized world. It serves as a clear and thorough introduction for all the burgeoning dark punks out there who wanna go a bit deeper but havent yet figured out where to start." - Sacred Bones.

Though it may be a little while longer before we get another full length, this single captures both the noisy and saccharine sweet sides of the band and should keep fans sated for now. "I Swear Ill Never Let You Go" is a two and a half minute downer-pop gem, four harmonies and all.

They were an eclectic group as far as musical taste, having dabbled in everything from classic rock to punk. The first time they jammed together they played non- stop without speaking for two hours and were seemingly over taken by a trance without any clear reference point. After they played their first show they began to delve into 60’s German krautrock while cultivating their love of and simultaneous propulsion towards motorik beat. They recorded their first record a year after they started and also birthed BYM (Blow Your Mind) Records to release this record and others from their burgeoning psych scene in Santiago, Chile.

With a minimal formation they managed to create a bluesy exploration, which takes the audience to a psychedelic trance. Like the rhythm of a train, with mid-tempo songs, they provide the audience a dense and misty energy. Without caring much about the contemporary scene they stand up for their own fascination about blues heroes, indian raga and hidden arts." Ok, so English isn t their first language. But the jist is pretty basic-- these two soul brothers got together in Santiago, Chile, started jamming and formed a pretty serious spiritual bond. Part of the ever growing Chilean Psychedelic underground scene (F?kzoid, La Banda, The Cindy Sisters, La Hell Gang, This Schafferson Jetplane, et al.), Holydrug offer up more pop structured/ vocal heavy tunes than their mates F?kzoid despite the fact that Ives plays in both bands.

"Sacred Bones Records presents Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable⿿the next full-length from London, Englands The Rebel. The alter ego of Country Teasers Ben Wallers, The Rebel dates back to the tail-end of the 80s⿿having existed side-by-side throughout the Teasers prolific career⿿often releasing records at a steadier clip than Wallers main project with songs too madcap to fit into even their William- Burroughs-by-way-of-The-Residents take on country music. Wallers characteristic self-aware irony and surreal gender/race ruminations are still present but sitting backseat in this more fleshed out concept album about decaying conditions on the planet 3ar7h. Although Burroughs comparisons are inevitable, Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable could only have been scripted by The Rebel. The albums narrator is in a band, has a valet named Mulholland, but inhabits an otherwise unrecognizable dystopian landscape where evil science laboratories combat college radio personalities, and nuclear war with Iran is well underway. Important issues of today and tomorrow are touched on. In ⿿Why Must I Pay?⿝ Mr. Thatcher, a future Prime Minister, is excoriated for the rising costs of tea, rent, drugs and sex. In ⿿Scarlett Johansen Conceiving the Design⿝ we are shown a horrific world in which starlets replace scientists as consumerdoms inventors. In ⿿Youre Just Like Tammy Wynette⿝ the Radical Islam Problem is diagnosed by looking at the politics of ladies headgear, while in ⿿Turtle v. Octopus⿝ a battle between Lovecraftian ancient adversaries plays out, potentially affecting the future of Music itself. This is the first Rebel album to be recorded in the studio with a live backing band...that band being Country Teasers. In terms of sound, Northern Rocks Bears Weird Vegetable exchanges The Rebels clautrophobic home studio layers and d.i.y. effects for the improvisational band chemistry and controlled looseness of Country Teasers infamous live act." - Sacred Bones.

Title: Honeysuckle Tendrals
Format: LP/7"
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Honeysuckle Tendrals is a lost recording. It resides within a canon of musical output by a singer/songwriter no one has heard of, from a place that the world has almost entirely written off. Recorded in 1999 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Honeysuckle Tendrals was Carls 2nd effort at a full length recording. He released it into the world in a miniscule edition of cassette tapes on his own Unconscious Piano Productions imprint. To say it was poorly distributed is an understatement. It was handed out to friends, and perhaps sold at various open mic nights, where he would sometimes pass off his own songs as Bob Dylan tunes to an unsuspecting audience. Incorporating numerous collage elements - and very few guitar strings - Honeysuckle Tendrals weaves in and out of song in a spacey wash of psychedelic imagery by way of nursery rhymes and fairytales. Owing influence to writers like Lewis Carroll, and filmmakers like Herzog and Lynch, as much as any musical influence, Carls music can have something of a cinematic feel. Though perhaps best classified under the floppy umbrella of "Outsider" music, Honeysuckle Tendrals displays remarkably complex arrangements utilizing a staggeringly simple arsenal of instruments: a broken guitar, sound collage, and heavily layered vocal tracks filtered through an array of effects. Think Peter Grudzien reading mother goose, The Cheshire Cat conducting the Langley School Music Project, or Bob Dylan singing singing unknown lullabies with a head full of helium. 2009 marks the 10th year anniversary of the recording of Honeysuckle Tendrals, and we at Sacred Bones are proud to give it a proper audience after so many years. The LP is an edited and slightly resequenced presentation; carefully curated, remastered for vinyl, and housed in a handmade jacket in the Folkways tradition. It includes a bonus 7"EP including two alternate takes from the LP and two outstanding, and completely exclusive non-album tracks. The CD version contains the album in its complete form. We hope you enjoy it as much as do." - Sacred Bones.

It was handed out to friends, and perhaps sold at various open mic nights, where he would sometimes pass off his own songs as Bob Dylan tunes to an unsuspecting audience. Incorporating numerous collage elements - and very few guitar strings - Honeysuckle Tendrals weaves in and out of song in a spacey wash of psychedelic imagery by way of nursery rhymes and fairytales. Owing influence to writers like Lewis Carroll, and filmmakers like Herzog and Lynch, as much as any musical influence, Carls music can have something of a cinematic feel. Though perhaps best classified under the floppy umbrella of "Outsider" music, Honeysuckle Tendrals displays remarkably complex arrangements utilizing a staggeringly simple arsenal of instruments: a broken guitar, sound collage, and heavily layered vocal tracks filtered through an array of effects. Think Peter Grudzien reading mother goose, The Cheshire Cat conducting the Langley School Music Project, or Bob Dylan singing singing unknown lullabies with a head full of helium. 2009 marks the 10th year anniversary of the recording of Honeysuckle Tendrals, and we at Sacred Bones are proud to give it a proper audience after so many years. The LP is an edited and slightly resequenced presentation; carefully curated, remastered for vinyl, and housed in a handmade jacket in the Folkways tradition. It includes a bonus 7"EP including two alternate takes from the LP and two outstanding, and completely exclusive non-album tracks. The CD version contains the album in its complete form. We hope you enjoy it as much as do." - Sacred Bones.

Title: Howlin Gang
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Slug Guts hail from the baron, heat stricken confines of Brisbane, Australia, a town as desolate as it is depressing and suburban. Slug Guts began when four degenerates had little else to do but form a band in the tradition of Pussy Galore, X (Australia not LA), and Birthday Party. In the first four months of the band Slug Guts recorded their first LP Down on the Meat which was released on Stained Circles Records (Jay Reatard, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Dirtbombs). After numerous Australian tours and one Japanese tour playing alongside Lightning Bolt, Dead Meadow, Primitive Calculators, Flipper, and Eddy Current amongst others, the band went back into the studio and recorded this thirteen-song sophomore album, Howlin Gang. The LP was recorded in a railway carriage on the outskirts of Ipswich. Taking partial influence from Christian Death, The Scientists and The Triffids, this new LP sought to take a different direction than the harsh swamp rock which characterized their first release. Howlin Gang LP features a duet with Angela Bermuda (Circle Pit) and guest appearances by Sarah Spencer (Blank Realm). Slug Guts will embark on their first US tour in March of 2011 including the Sacred Bones showcase at SXSW." -Sacred Bones.

Price: $18.00
"Playing in Time with the Deadbeat is Slug Guts third LP and the follow up to 2011s critically acclaimed Howlin Gang (SBR-046). Playing in Time sounds menacingly desperate, ugly and malnourished. This album draws on Australias rough and agitated pub rock history, taking dregs from Australian cult icons Feedtime and Venom P Stinger. Playing in Time with the Deadbeat was written during a year which saw members of this seven piece endure trips to the mental hospital, jail, court trials, death, rehab, and bouts of violence following thousands of kilometers spent in a van. From the cacophonous gallop of opening track Scum, to the hit single potential of Adult Living, it is clear the band, have grown heaps here as both writers and players. Despite personal setbacks and numerous tragedies, Playing in Time with the Deadbeat is the definitive Slug Guts album to date; it is a focused, damaged and unique opus.

"Born out of desperation in the brutal Canadian winter of 2009, ROBERT ALFONS and MAYA POSTEPSKI began writing songs about nostalgia, erotomania, and lust. TRUST combine elements of dark synth arpeggios, live and programmed drum beats and haunting, effected vocals effortlessly. What begins in the genre of minimal synth progresses into a sort of slow-techno that is equal parts introspective cold-wave and extroverted danceable. Their debut video directed by Eva Michon, shows a playful side to the duo as they ride around nature on a motorbike together, later though, hints at the pairs darker undercurrent emerge in the form of an Equus referenced incident involving Maya and a mare. Candy Walls is a gorgeous and controversial visual debut, which will undoubtedly be heavily buzzed about." -Sacred Bones

We gave Mr. Lynch a copy of her album Conatus and let him pick which track he wanted to work with. He chose a track that we felt already had single potential and replaced the tension building string patches with intricately crafted guitar parts orchestrated and performed by himself and music assistant Dean Hurley. What was once a dance track becomes a lurching cinematic masterpiece. The beat is slowed to a crawl, drum and synth patches removed entirely, and what is left is something perhaps closer to the nature of Zola Jesus than we ever could have hoped for." -Sacred Bones

"Since her debut lp for Sacred Bones last summer, Zola Jesuss profile has grown exponentially. Her video for �??Clay Bodies�?� debuted on The Fader and her likeness was plastered all over the Internet. The Spoils made dozens of year-end lists including The Wire, Pitchfork, The Fader, and Dusted, and fans and critics alike now seem rabid for new material. So without further ado, we present Stridulum, the new, far less lo-fi 6-song EP from Nika Roza Danilova. Recording her vocals for the first time with professional instruments, Nikas voice is brought to the powerful forefront of the mix unleashing the full range of emotions that had previously only been hinted at in her previous work. Its a siren song for the apocalypse, which manages to come across immensely nurturing at the same time. Born and raised in the backwoods of Wisco, Nika Roza was literally raised by wolves (well proximally anyways). Trained as an opera singer from a young age, she applied to Julliard. At 10 years old. Rejection didnt slow her down, though, as she went on to complete high school in three years and is set to graduate from university with a double major in French and philosophy in the same amount of time. As soon as schools out this summer, she will begin touring full time with a full band on both sides of the pond. Until then please keep an eye out for weekend excursions and the requisite standard umpteen SxSW shows. Her next full length will not be til 2011, but we feel pretty certain this will tide you over until then." - Sacred Bones.

For those uninitiated, The Spoils may be the most fully realized representation of her sound.

Title: We Know Nonsense
Format: CD
Label: Saidera
Country: Japan
Price: $19.00
Lovingly assembled and beautifully produced career-spanning recordings by this late 70s/early 80s UK DIY super group. The main instigator behind the Americans was Andrew Giblet Brenner who assembled a loose, disparate group of musical/non-musical practitioners as an experiment in equality and democracy. This democracy included Nag, Bendle and Else Watt of Door And The Window, David Toop, Steve Beresford and Max Eastley (coming out of the anything goes improv scene), Viv Albertine of the Slits, Vivien Goldman (who was simultaneously recording the classic dub/funk/punk Dirty Washing 12" on 99 Records which featured Beresford as well as Keith Levine, George Oban, Robert Wyatt, Adrian Sherwood and others) , Igor (Nag & Bendles roommate), parents of the members and many more.. The sound over the course of their career started off as rugged Door And The Window-ish songs/pieces on the first single but by the 1st LP and 12" evolved into an off-kilter songwriting style similar to that of Maher Shalal Hash Baz (Tori Kudo actually contributes liner notes which are unfortunately just in Japanese), Red Crayola, early Beat Happening, Good Missionaries and lesser knowns like Department Store Santas, Mark Tucker, Philip Johnson, etc.. By We Know Nonsense many songs have an almost lounge jazz style. This probably doesnt sound too appealing but the record does have its moments, including one of my fave 49 American songs (though some of the tracks are definitely not my bag). The The Original 14-Track Single... CD compiles the 1979 Wonder Only 85 Pennies 7" on N.B. Records (Nag & Bendles label) and the 1981, 10 track 12" on Choo Choo Train Records as well as 6 bonus tracks from 1979. Wonder includes the 1st LP from 1980 (originally on Choo Choo Train) plus 7 tracks from their first live gig at the London Musicians Collective in 1980. We Know Nonsense is the second full length from 1982 (co-released originally by Choo Choo Train and Toops semi-legendary Quartz label) plus 3 bonus tracks from 81 featuring Nigel Coombes on violin. Packaged in thick miniature old LP style jackets with extensive liner notes and lyrics (in japanese and english). "What might seem to others to be harsh reviews were to us wonderful complimentary fodder; swamped in kettle and saucepan percussion, a hearty shabbiness, amateurism viewed as a material virtue rather than a spiritual one, and the best quote of all, makes Swell Maps sound like Led Zeppelin." - Nag (Wonder liner notes). "The 49 Americans were an experiment in the pursuit of happiness... Have fun! Play! Participate! Everyone should be allowed to be an American." - Andrew Brenner (aka Giblet).

Title: Hit and Run
Format: Double CD
Label: Saint Cecilia Knows
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"The collected recordings of legendary lost 1970s New York City band, Jack Ruby. Seen and heard by just a precious few, Jack Ruby made only five studio recordings and played an equal number of gigs between 1973 and 1977. None of their music was ever released and, until now, they have existed solely as a word-of-mouth legend among peers. Yet their legacy and influence can clearly be heard in bands that followed in their wake like Sonic Youth and Teenage Jesus And The Jerks. They have been variously described as "The Velvet Underground in a car crash" and the "art-punk Steely Dan." Formed in 1973 by vocalist Robin Hall, guitarist Chris Gray, multi-instrumentalist Randy Cohen, classically-trained viola player Boris (also known as Boris Policeband), and later joined by bassist George Scott (James Chance And The Contortions/8-Eyed Spy/John Cale) and new vocalist Stephen Barth, the first incarnation of Jack Ruby demoed two tracks in a Times Square recording studio in 1974; their signature tune, the nihilistic proto-punk "Hit and Run" -- sounding like some unholy blend of Raw Power-era Stooges, Velvet Underground and J.G. Ballards Crash -- and a bizarre number entitled "Mayonnaise," based around Boris amplified viola and primitive electronic "beats" sequenced on Cohens Serge synthesizer. These two cuts were used to hustle additional studio time from Epic Records through Sly Stones A&R, Stephen Paley. Three more maniacal songs of arch art-punk with killer pop hooks -- "Bored Stiff," "Bad Teeth," and "Sleep Cure" -- were all recorded in one five to six hour session at Columbia Studios in May 1974. With Cohen patching musique concrète sounds through the Serge, set against Grays banshee guitar-playing and Halls snotty vocals, the Jack Ruby sound was formed. But a record deal evaded them. Cohen left and started a new career as a writer for Late Night With David Letterman and, later, as The Ethicist, a columnist for The New York Times solving readers ethical problems. In 1976, Hall and Gray reactivated Jack Ruby as a live-performing unit with George Scott on bass. They played harder, faster and louder than any other band in New York at that time. Their rehearsals at Matrix studios, and dusk-to-dawn parties at the Bowery apartment behind CBGBs shared by Gray and Scott, became a cult draw for other NYC punk and no wave musicians. Hall quit the band unexpectedly in 1977, days before their first scheduled gig. Jack Ruby continued on as a power trio with Gray, by now the only original member, taking over vocal duties for a couple of shows alongside Teenage Jesus And The Jerks and the Fleshtones, before disbanding for good after one last riotous show with new vocalist Stephen Barth at Maxs Kansas City, formerly stalking ground of the bands idols, The Velvet Underground. Hit and Run is a two-disc set of everything Jack Ruby recorded between 1973 and 1977 (across four incarnations of the band) that should see them acknowledged as one of the most radical and brilliantly original groups to emerge from the 1970s New York City music scene. Remastered from recently-discovered master tapes, the first disc collects all five of the bands studio recordings, which although 40 years-old still sound thrillingly urgent and modern, alongside a 1977 cassette of a band rehearsal, and a 2013 remix by producer Don Fleming. Disc two contains another side to Jack Ruby; a series of largely-electronic, avant-garde pieces from 1972 and 1974 -- nine short tracks that play like a library record, book-ended by two longer ones -- some of the earliest extant recordings made on a Serge synthesizer. What Jack Ruby left is a remarkable legacy of recorded music -- hidden for decades, now-revealed -- constituting a previously-unheard secret history of the New York City music scene of the early 1970s." - Saint Cecilia Knows.

Musically, the album is as psychedelic as you may dream from a South American 68 album. With acid guitar, sound effects, playing with repetitive sounds and incisive lyrics in Spanish. A total masterpiece of weird psychedelia that went nearly unnoticed in Colombia even though The Speakers were the biggest name in that countrys rock scene in the 60s. What makes this release even better is the deluxe treatment it had.

Strange Strings, standing squarely alongside Sun Ras other epics of the mid-1960s, Atlantis and Magic City, absolutely shines as his most painterly of expositions in its surface richness and play with deep space and coloration. He has offered no world more strange than this in his entire output as a composer and orchestrator. These explorations are only hinted at in scattered moments on other recordings from this period. The full exercise of his very original and very imaginative powers as musical adventurer and visionary bursts forth in the masterful cosmic clattering of Strange Strings." --Hal Rammel, 2006.

80 pages, b&w, with button. "Third issue of this classy West Coast digest-sized (duh) zine [...] laid out effectively and peppered with vintage schlock ads that reinforce the retro viewpoint present. All interviews and articles for the most part, obviously dealing in rocking and rolling of the past, the majority of which are written by editor Cory Linstrum. The big article is a very in depth interview with Avengers guitarist Greg Ingraham that takes up a good quarter of the zine and also contains some killer pics and fliers (including a crucifixion centerfold). Other “punk” interviews are a nice little Speedies chat with guitarist Greg Crewdson (writer of “Let Me Take Your Photo” who went on to actually become a professional photographer) and a very short Jeff McDonald/Redd Kross Q&A (in which he confesses to being a Ty Segall fan, which will endear him to many Termbo readers Im sure). For the moptops out there theres a piece with Peter Daltrey of Kaleidoscope/Fairfield Parlor who talks more about his book and current band than what we want to hear about – which effectively teases the book I suppose – and an interview with Paul Muggleton of The Savages, the mid-Sixties garage band from Bermuda(!) responsible for the monster cut “The World Aint Round, Its Square”, which is short but very very good for such an obscure band (as opposed to the Ugly Things approach of a three-issue spanning 30 page snoozefest dissecting what Cooper Bowman covered perfectly here in 3 pages). My favorite bit of this zine has always been the "Triple Threat" feature, which in this issue tackles the immortal Larry Wallis in a well researched piece that was a great read. Linstrum hints that hes running out of ammo for Triple Threats (Chuck Biscuits is supposedly next) so mail in some suggestions for him! The reviews section is barely existent (which I dont mind at all), focuses on books/zines/films and only reviews three actual records (including Giuda, yuck) and is pretty disposable, but thats no problem. Im of a different breed than music fans like Cory who seem to ignore the present and live in the past, but to each his own, and I still enjoy Savage Damage very much. Worth a pick up for the Larry Wallis piece alone, plus it comes with a great Stiff Records button with Lazzas image!" - Savage Damage Digest.

Early techno gems, disco-punk and noisy landscapes with a real Japanese flavour. Founded in Kyoto in 1978 by chief editor of Rock Magazine, Agi Yuzuru, this label has a short but very interesting production. Only 10 long play albums, 3 7" singles, one double compilation, and few cassettes were recorded between 1978 and 1980. Some flexi discs were given with Rock Magazine issues during 1980. All of the records were extremely limited and released in editions of 200 and 500 copies. Most of the covers were handmade and nowadays original pressing are impossible to find and change hands for hundreds of dollars.

Title: Canaxis 5
Format: LP
Label: Scheisshouse
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"The project name for a one-off collaboration between Cans bass player Holger Czukay and the painter Rolf Dammers. Canaxis 5 (1969) was an early attempt at manipulating ethnic music (World music), in many ways predating the discreet background music of certain ambient Brian Eno albums. The album was made using tape loops from traditional Vietnamese music to create some kind of acoustic sound painting. The result was a strange sound milage. It contained only two tracks: "Boat-Woman-Song" and "Canaxis". Few ordinary instruments were in use, only Holgers bass can be heard occasionally. Nowadays, this album is nothing more than a curiosity, documenting the ambient music in its early childhood. Czukays tape editing skills steadily improved through the years - as proved by the mid-period Can albums and even more so on his solo albums." - Mutantsounds. "One of the earliest and rarest Krautrock albums ever, this was recorded in 1968 by Holger Czukay of CAN fame, and released the next year on the tiny Music Factory label in a pressing of only 500 copies.

Title: Hallo Milk
Format: CD
Label: Schneeball
Country: Germany
Price: $14.00
"The No-Neck Blues Band presents the music of Embryo in anticipation of collaborative double LP to be released by De Stijl in September. Embryo is the longest running of the German underground collectives, formed by Christian Burchard after he left Amon Duul 2 in 1969. "Bremen 1971" and "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" (1972) present the band at their peak period of Kraut - jazz -psych exploration, with "Father" being one of the peak records of its genre. "Live" (1976) has Embryo at a weaker point, caught in a "Bitches Brew"-obsessed fusion era that would soon be abandoned by Burchard and company for Eastern leanings. "Reise" (1978) and "(La Blama Sparozzi)" (1980) are pinnacle acheivements of their kind, presenting Embryos progressive sound combined with that of the indiginous musicians they encountered while caravan traveling throughout Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and India. "Hallo Mik" (2003) lets you hear what Embryo is up to now, which is a sort of hybrid cache of ethnicities, a world music for savants, and features Chris Karrer and Deiter Serfas of Amon Duul 2 and Lothar Stahl of Checkpoint Charlie, among others. A warning for the wise: those with a low tolerance for ethno-jazz best not venture past 72, and then wait for the NNCK collabo record which we understand minimizes the funk."

Format: 7"
Label: Scioto
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"When BRIAN HARNETTY was commissioned to work with the Sun Ra/El Saturn archives in Chicago, his goal was to develop a series of conversations with SUN RA through the many recordings in the collection. On one level, the resulting pieces combine these diverse materials to create a sonic collage. On another level, Harnetty uses these elements to reveal multi-layered stories, drawing out the many connections and complexities of the Sun Ra archives. For this 7-inch single, entitled "The Sociophonic Key," Harnetty has created a stand-alone work drawn from "The Star Faced One," a 2010 sound installation at the Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago. Despite the variety of samples used many subtle relationships are heard--both literal and fantastic--from Sun Ra rehearsing a group of children fading into an answering machine, to the intensity of a gospel preacher alongside the Arkestras invitation to join them in outer space.

Price: $25.00
"BRUCE LANGHORNE, one of the most in-demand session guitarists of the 60s, is probably best known for playing on several of Bob Dylans best records, including Bringing It All Back Home and Blonde on Blonde. He actually played with just about everybody in the late 60s folk-rock universe-Fred Neil, Joan Baez, Tom Rush, John Sebastian, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Odetta, Richie Havens and others. Langhorne performed live with Dylan at Newport, produced records for Ramblin Jack Elliott and was the real-life inspiration for "Mr. Tamborine Man." His crowning achievement however may be the soundtrack he composed for Peter Fondas directorial debut, The Hired Hand. Surprisingly, for such a seasoned veteran of the booming folk scene, this was Langhornes first solo record. Recorded in the garage of his Laurel Canyon home in 1969 using an Echoplex and a two-track Revox tape machine, the album features an assortment of period instruments from the old west-fiddle, dulcimer, recorder, banjo, upright piano, harmonica and Langhornes National steel string guitar. The spacey, hypnotizing score was a perfect match for Fondas atmospheric western and along with Vilmos Zigmonds stunning cinematography and some top-notch performances from Warren Oates, Verna Bloom and poet Michael McClure, heavily contributed to the films underground success. The movie was part of Universals "semi-independent series in which the studio, hoping to score the next Easy Rider, turned five young filmmakers loose equipped with small budgets and complete artistic control. Sadly, The Hired Hand didnt go over so well with mainstream audiences (although American Graffiti, another Universal "semi-independent" feature, certainly did). Nevertheless, both the film and Langhornes score have lived on as cult classics. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl in an edition of 1,000 copies." - Scissor Tail Editions.

"Adam Bohman is a member of Morphogenesis and The London Improvisors Orchestra. He also regularly performs alongside his brother Jonathan under the guise The Bohman Brothers. Their sound art oscillates between states of the absurd and (sonically) grotesque to highly articulate explorations of extra-musical sound. Electroacoustic music and free-improvisation could be regarded as co-ordinates on the grid. However,unlike the hermeticism of electro-acoustic music or the purism of free-improvisation, the Bohmans freely quote from any source and arent afraid to show it. So you get Varesesian sound montage supporting spoken word material sourced from a pub menu, or frenetic juxtapositions between amplified shoe brushes and a frenzied tape cut-up of 17th Century instruments. The Bohman aesthetic can be a dense and tangled thing to unpick and describe. Various and nefarious sounds and artistic influences merge and collide. Dylan Nyoukis work exists on the fringe of contemporary avant garde art and underground DIY insurrection." - David Keenan, Glasgow, June 2009

"The Stumps are a New Zealand based noise-rock trio made up of members Antony Milton (Pseudoarcana, The Nether Dawn, Mrtyu, etc), James Kirk (Sandoz Lab Technicians, Black Boned Angel, Gate, etc), and Stephen Clover (Palindrone, seht). Formed in Wellington in 2003, the group is known for its noisy guitar soundscapes and improvisational take on psychedelic rock music. Most often, Clover plays bass, Milton sings and plays electric guitar, and Kirk plays drums, though the group are known to expand their instrumental palette using synthesizers, field recordings, electronics, and guest musicians. With a laundry list of individual accomplishments preceding them, The Stumps bring high expectations. Theyve been compared to such seminal acts as The Dead C, Guru Guru, Acid Mothers Temple, Fushitusha, Les Rallizes Denudes, Sun Ra and the Velvet Underground, but these Kiwis have their own twist in their psychedelic cosmic explorations. They are robust and powerful; an exciting and often overwhelming listening experience. Itll burn out your eardrums and douse the flames in hot wax.

"Jim Haynes and Loren Chasse have collaborated with Keith Evans to create Coelacanths fourth and most complex record. Culled from two performances - a five-hour recording session during Matmoss 96 hours of performances at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and an audio/visual performance with Keith Evans - Wrack Light in Copper Ruin explores the symbiosis of materiality and sound, and its infinite network of metaphors and allegories. Like an abandoned aquarium in which an accidental and incongruous microcosm takes shape, Coelacanths sound illustrates a constant evolution of decay, encroachment, and repossession of the border space between the natural and the man-made. Comparatively, Wrack Light is more delicate than Coelacanths  previous recordings, inhabiting a space where artists such as Jonathan Coleclough, Andrew Chalk, Mirror, and MNortham can be found, yet it maintains the mysterious, oceanic nature its name implies."

Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The first release from 1979 by new age/electronic duo EMERALD WEB, composed of husband and wife BOB STOHL and KAP EPPLE. Lots of trippy flute and synthesizer soundscapes with the odd vocal track from Epple. A unique sound somewhere between Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, and the Blade Runner soundtrack, all filtered through homemade found nature sound weirdness and naive studio trickery. The sound of South Florida getting kosmische." -Sebastian Speaks.

Artist: LUCAS, TED
Title: Ted Lucas
Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The music of Ted Lucas has circulated through CD-Rs and blogs for years now. Although primarily known for this, his 1975 self-titled album (sometimes referred to as The OM Record), a legacy of hundreds of tapes decisively reveal one of the psychedelic eras most criminally-overlooked talents. Lucas studied with Ravi Shankar. He was the "exotic instruments specialist" for Motown and played sitar on many of their most famous productions. He rubbed shoulders with Alice Cooper and Ted Nugent and every other major player on the Detroit scene. His pioneering early psych rock bands The Spike Drivers and Misty Wizards managed to become legends with nothing more than a handful of singles. Stanley Mouse, prime image-maker for the Grateful Dead and friend of Ted, adapted the cover for Ted Lucas from his artwork for Jimi Hendrixs unfinished last album. Its the first appearance of the space scarab -- the UFO that would later become Journeys symbol. From brief, spontaneous ditties, predating the lo-fi indie movement by 20 years, to the epicly psychedelic sitar guitar ragas in Lucas signature loose string tunings, Lucas never wavered from his visceral, intensely honest vision. A self-taught master of many instruments and consummate do-it-yourselfer, Ted created a home studio and worked out new ways to tune his guitars. The pride he took in his craft and his attention to detail were inspiring and exasperating to all who knew him. His wit was legendary. The reasons for Lucas failure to break out of the Detroit scene would require, and probably deserve, a book-length investigation. His career provides insight on the difficulty of self-publishing and self-promotion in the pre-internet age. Without a doubt, things would have turned out very differently had he come up today. Lucas voice is unspeakably mellow, his guitar unbelievably gentle, and his arrangements absolutely impeccable. Do not miss this album. " - Sebastian Speaks.

"Incredibly haunting and lush private press gem from the mid-seventies. Wisconsin singer songwriter John Villemonte may be a native of the Midwest, but this rich album conjures up the same sort of hazy Southern California vibe as David Crosbys If I Could Only Remember My Name. There are some smooth stoned vibes here a la Bread, but with a slightly unsettled edge, especially on tracks like the gorgeous I Am the Moonlight, a song also featured on the Numero Groups stellar Lonesome Heroes compilation."- Sebastian Speaks.

"This record reminds me of what music made on a perfect evening on the edge of the Hawaiian rain forest, stoked on primo weed and some nice Pinot Noir, might sound like. All the women look like Peggy Lipton, all the men like Merrell Fankhauser." - Stan Denski, The Acid Archives.

Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Collie Ryan privately pressed three albums in the early seventies, Taking Your Turn Round the Corner of Day, Indian Harvest, and The Giving Tree. The records were funded in part by Collies friends at the New Age Farms carrot and fresh juice company in Lompoc, California and her mesmerizing music remained largely a secret until "Cricket," one of the tracks from Indian Harvest, surfaced on the Numero Groups stellar 2006 compilation Ladies From the Canyon. Collies music is almost solely based around her cosmic and birdlike voice and nylon guitar picking, and her lyrics reflect her lifelong study of theosophy and naturalist living. Even today Collie lives largely outside of what would be considered "regular" society, residing in a converted 1930s school bus in the middle of a Texas desert and painting mandalas on hub cabs, while continuing to produce her very special and personal music. Sebastian Speaks, in association with Douglas McGowan of Yoga Records, is proud to present this compilation The Hour Is Now, culling tracks from her first three lps and presented in a sleeve featuring new front and back paintings by Collie. The tracks have been completely remastered from the original source tapes by J.D. Emmanuel of Wizards fame." -Sebastian Speaks/Yoga

"New 3 track EP from Hype Williams. Ooovrrr melts Drakes vocals down to a syrupy slur and lays over a snappy lo-fi beat, heavy on the 1s and 3s, as some wavering synths play off each other in a haze. Rescue Dawn III drags an early 90s jungle bassline down to a snails pace. A super melted vocal refrain, a VHS quality synth line and hiss-drenched bass form a something that could loosely be referred to as dub. The b-side is an alternate take on Sades The Sweetest Taboo – a beautiful version envisioned through the heroin haze that the lyrics evoke. No group is absorbing and filtering pop culture quite like Hype Williams. A truly unique project. Features artwork by Ed Lehan. Limited edition of 500 copies." -Second Layer.

"LP only - 160 gram virgin vinyl, pressed in Czech Republic, direct metal mastering, full-color labels and jackets, all-exclusive new jams limited to 200 copies. All-new exclusive Avarus! Fourth Secret Eye full-length and tenth release overall from this incredible Finnish band that pretty much defines modern psychedelic kraut improv. Primitive, primal and tribal, desolate and mournful, dreamy and pastoral, motorik and hypnotic. Buzzing, clattery, droning, stumbling Krautrock flecked with shimmering free-noise, avant ambience, delicate folk fuckery, and chaotic caveman psychedelic space rock. Avarus IV starts where the Rasvaaja LP ended. The IV, too, consists of Tomas Regans careful high-quality recordings. On the IV Avarus makes and even longer dive in the warm and clear pond, into which the water is poured from both kraut and space rock, and from micro music and slapstick. The recording was made after the US tour, which guarantees the firm harmony satisfying the most demanding listeners. The delicate talent and the hilarious team spirit guarantee a recordful of heart-warming harmonies and surprising turns delighting an unprejudiced mind. The wondrous adult rock of Avarus is born from an uncompromising love for music. The finished recording deserved a fantastic cover, too. This in mind, the graphic visionaries Amanda Vähämäki and Pauliina Mäkelä spent their summer holidays swimming, drinking beer, and drawing their kaleidoscopic Davy Crockett epos inspired by music." - Secret Eye.

Title: Lost and Found 1963-1974

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"TINY TIM: Lost and Found 1963-1974 is a collection of 17 incredibly obscure songs consisting of previously unreleased actetates, privately pressed 45s, and an early 60s studio session that was arranged by MILTON GLASER. Much of the material on this release was thought to have been lost to time, but after many years of collecting and compiling by Tiny Tim enthusiasts, Secret Seven Records is making it available to a wider audience for the first time. Lost and Found contains tracks from Tinys pre-fame years, recorded between 1963 (When he was still known as DARRY DOVER) and 1966; as well as material from his post-fame years, recorded between 1971 and 1974. Furthermore, the material is unique because they both represent eras of desperation for Tiny Tim. The material from the 1960s represents Tinys years scraping by, performing in dives in Greenwhich Village and living with his parents who had, by 1963, written him off as mentally ill. The material from the early 1970s, recorded while his mainstream career was in its decrescendo, is representative of an time in which the world saw that brightest stars burn out the fastest. However, it was during these eras of desperation that Tiny recorded some of the best, eclectic, and intriguing material of his career. This limited edition LP includes liner notes by Tiny Tim historian / biographer, JUSTIN A. MARTELL and a cover photo by BARON WOLMAN." -Secret Seven

"The music for Goodby Sunball was written during the recovery period following serious spine surgery. The surgery had not gone well, I was laid up for months, and had to learn to walk again. So, the music was written using an acoustic guitar, while laying in bed. When I was able to be up and around more, I started recording the songs...a little at a time. It took about 7 months. I recorded the tracks in the little studio I had in my place. It was all recorded on two-channel, tube type machines (back and forth between machines).

Format: LP
Label: SEER Sound Archive
Country: Japan
Price: $19.00
"Group ONGAKU, founded mainly by students at Tokyo National University of Fine Art & Music, was the 1st collective musical improvisation group. The group began their activities in 1958, & from the naming of the group in 1960 onward continued until somewhere around 1962. They attempted to create acoustics corresponding to actual time & space by means of collective improvisation. Although methodically different, the music that they pursued incidentally shared common directions with contemporaries such as John Cage & other involved in the avant-garde artist collective of Fluxus." - Takako Okamoto, taken from original liner notes.

"Three wild & woolly scrambling tracks that melt nodes. Dished are dropped, vacuum cleaners get fried, saxes, organs & cellos howl, Group Ongaku were doing it all when the only other cosmic acolyte on the scene was Alan Watts. And these recordings-laid down a couple of years AHEAD of Big Als acid jabber- make This Is It sound like the lysergic soundtrack to Hello Dolly! by comparison. Concurrently, these primal articulations bear the distinction of sounding like the COMPLETE Nurse With Wound List playing at once.. And when you realize that said posse includes Airway, Cromagnon, Don Bradshaw Leather & Throbbing Gristle among its formidable ranks, then one must understand that what is passing between their ears is an aural Excalibur of avant/experimental freakdom that almost no one knew existed. A staggering & crucial lost piece to the ever burgeoning puzzle of the weird." - Phinneas Barbital, author, Cracks Inside Planet Brain (forthcoming, 2011).

"Those familiar w/Julian Copes seminal Japrocksampler will recognize the name Group Ongaku as the cornerstone of the 32 page entry, "Experimental Japan. Simply put, this collective was edenic as the foundation of fusing avant classical input with organic,improvisational output, thus forging a singular Minimalist sound on par w/similar, radical outre composition that was taking place in the West at the same time (Cage & Stockhausens work in particular). That members of Group Ongaku would later be instrumental in founding Japans Fluxus movement as well as form the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers seems almost elementary.And while to some these recording might sound archaic, their importance can never be understated or denied. Recorded in 1960 & 61 respectively, these 3 tracks were original 1st released on CD in a small edition in 1996. Long thought to be impossible to replicate onto vinyl due to time constraints (side 1 is practically 35 minutes in length), new technology in Japanese audio restoration has made it possible for Music Of Group Ongaku to finally see a proper LP release. And the sound is most exhilarating. Personnel is as follows; Takehisa Kosugi (violin, sax, tape), Chieko Shiomi (piano), Mikio Tojima (cello), Yasunao Tone (sax, tape), Genichi Tsuge (guitar), Shukou Mizuno (cello, drums tape). Japanese import, includes English language insert, edition of 300." - SEER Sound Archive. We were thoroughly stunned hearing this after nabbing a few of the CDs way back when - ahead of its time to say the least. Very highly recommended!

Format: CD

Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"Noise surrounds and permeates us, and no one is more responsible than the New Humans from that loudest and noisiest of metropolises: New York. From installation art to ear splitting live concerts, this infernal power trio lead by artist Mika Tajimi eschews no collaboration, no matter how insane. Guitarist and artistic leader Tajimi is supported by electronics specialist and voice acrobat Howie Chen, drummer Eric Tsai, as well as a large number of guest musicians. The New Humans like nothing more than to drag friend and foe with them into their noise avalanches. Semishigure proudly presents the fourth release, a unique live collaboration with artist Vito Acconci, a pioneer of body/conceptual art, and vintage experimentalist C. Spencer Yeh. This album consists of two concerts that took place during an exposition of the collective at the Elizabeth Dee Gallery in New York. Two electrifying, memorable performances that just had to be registered on CD. The last time American performance legend Vito Acconci collaborated with a band was more than ten years ago, when he worked with punk rock brigade the Mekons. A similarly untainted, classically grim punk attitude shines through in his spoken word performance with the New Humans. ⿿You in the Background⿝ is the name of their jointly raised middle finger to the world. Floating on the ominously swelling waves of noise created by the New Humans, Acconci throws all frustrations overboard. Captive to a feverish, shamanic trip, Acconci speaks of each and everyones search for their own identity. Acconci has made a special selection from his audio works for the occasion. Texts such as ⿿Now do you believe the dirty dogs are dead⿝ (1978) and ⿿Cry, baby!⿝ (1977) still sound like screams for enlightenment and liberation. C. Spencer Yehs plaintive violin careens into the impenetrable wailing wall of feedback. The New Humans not just voice, but scream their anger of life under the Bush regime, and in Acconci they have found a worthy ally. C. Spencer Yeh and the New Humans go the whole hog on the second live concert, an immensely loud drone séance lasting half an hour. Like no other, radical violinist Yeh manages to infiltrate any collective, be it Dream/Aktion Unit, Comets of Fire or Smegma. Through his trademark exorcising Velvets violin sound Yeh manages to create unbearable tension with the New Humans sound avalanches in hot pursuit. During the performance, a glass sculpture is destroyed and the noise of its breaking amplified. At any moment the waves of noise terror threaten to submerge Yeh, but he stands firm. Thank God this all-engulfing live experience has been registered for posterity!" -Semishigure.

"Too freaked out for punks and too punked out for freaks, STEVE HALL stalked the nascent British Punk/DIY scene under the guise of AFFLICTED (later AFFLICTED MAN)throughout the early 80s to the interest of almost no one. Hiding in plain sight, Hall unleashed a string of 7-inches and LPs that evoked a singular and unique take on the punk sneer made fashionable by the Sex Pistols and their minion. Primitively blending elements of psychedelia and dub over his feral, chainsaw approach, Afflicted Man unleashed a miasma of tripped out, fuzzy aggro thrashers that would eventually climax into a masterpiece of pedal stomping carnage-the unimpeachable Get Stoned Ezy LP-the likes of which are only now being fully digested. Easily one of the UKs strangest and ignored DIY punk bands. This collection includes the entire output; all three mega rare 7-inches plus the hard to find LPs The Afflicted Mans Musical Bag, Im Off Me Head, and the aforementioned Get Stoned Ezy. Complete Recordings is the type of release to make even the most knowledgeable of humbugs sit up and take notice. Essential in every way." - Senseless Whale. Highly recommended!

"First reissue of this ultra-obscure pre-no-wave LP, originally released in Japan, 1975." - FE. "3/3 are Reck (guitar, vocals), Higo Hiroshi (bass) and Chiko Hige (drums). The name was inspired by a Japanese comic (4/4). In February 1975, 3/3 (Sanbun No San) released this album in a tiny pressing of 15 copies only to get a record deal. The cover was homemade and the recording sounds live but without audience. The music is ultra heavy guitar-dominated psychedelic rock like a mixture of Blue Cheer / Randy Holden/MC5 and early punk/new wave bands. The sound quality is mediocre but the music is a blaster. 3/3 has never released another recording. Both Reck and Hige then moved to New York where they stayed for over a year and played with James Chance & the Contortions, Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus & The Jerks) and others (No New York movement). They returned to Japan in 1978 to start a new group which became very famous: Friction. In 1979 Friction appeared on a compilation and in 1980 they recorded their first album. Friction released more than 10 albums in Japan. Friction has certainly had a heavy influence on the late 1970s Japanese punk and new wave scene. Reck is again active on the Tokyo scene and has teamed up with Haino Keiji and hardcore drummer Pill, with whom he performs under the name Head Rush. This album of 3/3 is the rarest underground album ever released in Japan." - Shadoks.

The Australian artist Paul Adolphus recorded the album in Kyoto/Japan, playing guitar, vocals, flutes, shakuhachi. Totally vibed-out "personal" folk-psych. "My first visit to Japan was in 1968 after living in India and Sri Lanka. My wife at the time arrived in Kyoto, and had our first child there. We really loved it. We returned to Sweden then went back to Kyoto and had our second child there. We lived in a two hundred year old farm house in a village outside Kyoto. It was a great scene at the time. Japanese artists, bohemians, and visiting foreigners making art music poetry etc. I was  playing music with different people, then developed a musical relationship with Mitsu Harada. We did concerts and toured to other cities in Japan together. Before leaving Japan Mitsu organised to record the album together. Mitsus father was the grand master of a calligraphy school. In a large room in the school Mitsu set up mikes and a big stereo recorder consul. Most of the playing was by Mitsu and myself, an American friend played a little guitar and percussion to fill some holes. A group of friends sat around, so it was a bit of a living room concert feel. It was my material, Mitsu engineered as well as playing. I think there were 200 copies pressed, the covers were hand made, so it was released into the small arts community of Kyoto and Tokyo. Not long after the recording I travelled with the family to Australia, I had been away from here for a decade. I worked on a lot of projects here, composing for theatre and dance. I had a group called Living Music - an African drummer, Indian tabla, didjeridoo, winds etc. It was early days, not too many people were ready for world music."

Musically, it goes in the same direction as Blo, The Witch and Question Mark, but this album is way cooler and stoned with an amazing fuzz guitar all over which sounds like an African version of early Cream. The cover makes it look very traditional but after a few spins, you are aware that this one is very special.

Bodo was born in Germany and traveled all over the world playing music. Included here are cover versions, some of his own compositions, and an extra 4-track EP of amazing, unheard tracks. An ultra-rare original of this late 60s Mexican garage psych album is a Holy Grail for collectors, in the same league with Mexicos Kaleidoscope. After this release, Bodo left Mexico to travel the world playing with great musicians. He now lives and plays music in Cairo, Egypt, rocking the center of the Islamic world. 500 numbered/heavy sleeve/insert/180 gram pressing; the bonus 7" is on red vinyl." -Shadoks

"This is Masayoshi Takanakas (pre-Flied Egg) first-ever recording, originally released in 1971 as a tiny private pressing in Japan, also one of the great collectors unsolved mysteries, appearing in Hans Pokoras book, 3001 Record Collector Dreams. Its so rare that it took nearly two years to locate the material. The music is West Coast-oriented hard psych with a progressive touch - all original material and really well-produced. This is a concept album like Spooky Tooth/Pierre Henrys Ceremony, and a true hippie undertaking by Takanaka, Hitoki Goto, Michio Ara, Tushio Tsukagishi, Toru Hatano and Takefumi Yoshida - an album where many musicians of the Japanese underground scene were involved.

Paul Lupien - organ / George Runyan - bass, vocals / Alan Goldman - guitar / Jerome Charles Greenberg - drums, recorded 8 great tracks which never came out so far. We could even use the original artwork. This is a fantastic prog / psychedelic monster LP, a mixture of dreamy organ psych with heavy fuzz bluster, very much like CA Quintet.

Since it was not that easy for a Scottish band to get attention down in London, this album was the only pressing ever done and sold at band gigs only. 5 musicians, great organ, vocals, extra heavy fuzz-guitar, drums and bass; amazing underground songs, influenced by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Beggars Opera, a true lost classic.

Price: $44.00
"We always thought Elonkorjuu was the heaviest album in the early 70s from Finland. But Charlies album features loud and wild guitars, screaming vocals, and can easily be described as the most outrageous Finnish album of the 70s not far away from Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Buttocks is a heavy, hypnotic and progressive with amazing guitar work from Eero Ravi, the musical soul of the band. So the Finnish scene had much more to offer back in the early 70s beside Wigwam and Tasavallan Presidenti. They have recorded Buttocks for Love Records. Mika Kaurismäki (film director/producer) wrote: I had already started to discover blues music, John Mayall, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and others, so it was quite logical, that I became of a fan of Charlies. In Lahti, we thought Charlies was the best band in Finland. Charlies played the famous Ruisrock festival in 1970. What a great band this is. Their first album Musiikkia elokuvasta Julisteiden liimaajat will be released early next year. Buttocks is so good and rare that is deserves a good reissue. The album comes with many extras such as photos and extensive liner notes. Dave Lindholm (musician) wrote: Charlies was the first big Finnish rock band for me. They played loud and rough. They looked like men, not popstars. They played the music I love. Could I ask for more? Well, I didnt! 500 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl, in a heavy sleeve." -Shadoks.

"The Contents Are was one of many sixties bands from the Quad Citys fertile garage music scene. With labels/studios like Fredlo and IGL, it was a very healthy regional area for bands with an unusually high per capita for record releases. Up until the recent discovery of an original copy a couple years ago, it was only rumored to exist and remained an enigma with hardcore record collectors. In most cases, the Contents Are were only known by astute collectors for their two excellent 45 releases (non-LP). Well the mystery is over, and heres your chance to hear one of the rarest & greatest garage records ever recorded. Heres the story about the record: Four high school seniors from Iowa decide to release an album of all original tunes, and was exclusively sold at their live shows. Originally released on the Rok label (a subsidiary of the already obscure Fredlo label) in 1967 with only 100 copies pressed. These guys were not your typical garage band ? talented players, professional grade vocalists and no cover songs!!! Their music is a nice blend of garage rock with hints of hipster folk and early psychedelic influences. As good if not better as other similar top shelf rarities like Mystery Meat and the Bachs, but no major quantity find making original copies of the Contents Are ten times rarer. Get it or miss it!

It was a long search to locate the rights for this album since it was not with EMI anymore. With the help of musicians and producers from The Third Eye and Freedoms Children, weve found the original producer. He told us that the brother/sister band John & Philipa Cooper went to Britain shortly after the album was made and there it lost track. This amazing album has the same class as Billy Nichols, Duncan Browne and Blossom Toes. Many other musicians from S.A. were helping out. Every track is just great. Well composed underground songs, folk rock, effects, pop tunes just the right mixture for an album full of ideas and masterfully played. Perhaps one of the rarest albums from S.A. This album would have been a great success if it was produced in UK. It just has the right feel with the combination of great songs with a 60s art-vibe.

"From Denmark 1970; LP in edition of 450 numbered copies, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing, insert. The Danish group Days was formed in Copenhagen in the winter 1967/68 by Peter Lindhe (drums), John Kjaergaard (vocals/rhythm guitar), Ole Fester (vocals/bass) and Lars Reinau (vocals/lead guitar). The bands repertoire was mainly rock and blues oriented with cover versions of songs from John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, Cream, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones. During 1968/69 Peter Lindhe and Lars Reinau started writing original material to the band and the repertoire started changing from rock/blues cover versions to self composed more lyrical songs with elements of the Beatles, Procol Harum and (early) Deep Purple. In 1969 Jørn Anker (Hammond organ) joined the band and he too started contributing new original songs to the band. The Days LP was recorded in the early summer of 1970 and in 1971 the band split up. Days is one the the rarest albums from Denmark which also came out on Spectator (Blues Addicts, Terje Jesper & Joachim, Moses). It is full of amazing prog tunes with great organ elements and strong fuzz guitar. A killer album from beginning to end."- Shadoks.

"600 numbered copies. 180 gram vinyl in a heavy sleeve with large poster and insert. Dreams Get Dreamy is perhaps the most fantastic and unique underground album from Scandinavia. Recorded in 1967 it was the first LP by legendary guitarist Terje Rypdal. A year later Terje recorded his first solo album also for Polydor. The album Get Dreamy has great original songs full of wild fuzz guitar, swirling Hammond organ, sound effects and strong vocals. The musicals influences could be Cream and Jimi Hendrix with the lyrical touch of Procol Harum. All songs very well produced and recorded in Stockholm. Dream started straight away with a full album which was not common in the musical world in 1967. Most bands produced singles, first. With a lot enthusiastic help from Norway, including Terje Rypdal, plus the cooperation of many photographers, we are happy to put this album out with a big poster insert including a great band story and many, many unseen photos. The album was mastered in 24bit direct from the original master tapes. So the sound is really good and many tracks you can hear for the first time in full stereo (the original Polydor pressing had half of the tracks in mono). So, this might be for us on of the most important releases of this year since this took so much work and passion. We just love this album." -Shadoks.

Among the great albums from Chile like Blops, Aguaturbia, Los Jaivas and Escombros, this album is just amazing, just like their first. Beautiful compositions and instrumentation, very well played, strong vocals and poetic lyrics; we would vote this album as one of the best from the of South America.

Their influences are Jimmy Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd and Grand Funk Railroad. All English vocals. After this recording Walter left Chile, so the band split up.

If you are into wild fuzz guitar ala Zappa, and if you like Kissing Spell from Chile, beautiful vocals with strong lyrics and great beats, you will love this album. The early Pink Floyd has also influenced this album. For us it was one of the big musical discoveries for this year.

"Reissue of this private pressing from the USA, 1972. LP in an edition of 450 numbered copies, with glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "All tracks were recorded by JW Jarquhar in 1972. The songs on The Formal Female were written as an outcry against the materialistic nature of the woman during that time period in 1972. Many will tell you it is still that way. JW had recently extricated himself from a 10 year marriage and the words from this experience fit the lyrics on the album still. During that time he lived by himself in a 3rd floor apartment in Philadelphia. It was a street with a lot of traffic. Car horns, busses, police sirens, fire engines, screams, and sometimes even gunshots filled the airwaves. For this reason he sealed up the windows and any other openings with sound-proofing foam. This was necessary because his music was recorded in there. JW was the instrumentalist; rhythm guitar, lead guitar, drums, vocals, and bass. However he could not play them all at once, so he purchased a four track simulsync Teac recorder... professional version. This allowed him to record on one track and then play it back and separately record on a second, third, and fourth track. The original tracks were recorded at 15 IPS. A final mix was then made in stereo with yet a fifth overdub, when needed. At that time other effects were limited. It is amazing electric fuzz album full of effects and its a masterpiece such as D.R. Hooker. Extra heavy psychedelic." -Shadoks.

In autumn 1969 he helped put together super heavy rock group Jumbo with Freddy Lindquist, Leif Jensen and Tore Syvertsen. The group had two singles, but were dissolved during the work on their first LP. Finjarn and Jensen made the album complete with Lindquist, Arild Krosby, Arne Kvikstad and Grete Christoffersen. Yngvar Holm wrote an enthusiastic article that was published by the jacket. Briton John Mills was the producer for the album, which came out in autumn 1970, and that could be placed side by side with the hard, progressive rock from abroad.

Shadoks Music presents all three records by Freedoms Children, now collected together, after two years of struggle and hard work with tons of help from collectors in South Africa, England, Austria and the U.S.A. Since all mastertapes were lost in a big fire, they had to be mastered from the original vinyl, using two or three mint copies of each album to make the best possible sounding product. All three albums are the most wanted albums ever from South Africa. Some call them "The Pink Floyd of South Africa," and if the political situation in S.A. at that time would have been easier, they would have had the same status in the international music market as Pink Floyd. Beautifully composed songs, amazing instrumentation, well-crafted guitar work and great singers. The extra-heavy prog sound beats most albums in the same direction coming from the UK or U.S.A.

(where from? where to?) was recorded in Turkey in 1979 by Sükrü Yüksel (guitar), Aydin Sencan (bass), Cahit Kukul (guitar) and Sedat Avci (drums). The band was only known by a very small insider-group, but those fans just adored Hardal. The secret of Hardals small popularity is that in 1979 the Turkish rock scene was comatose. Cem Karaca left to Germany, Erkin Koray moved to Canada, Edip Akbayram got stuck because of his political ambitions. Only Baris Mancho was still on the road. To start a new band was tough in Turkey. Hardal also recorded 2 albums later. The music is the best Turkish progressive underground you can think of. Filled with guitars, synth sounds, great Eastern vibe vocals and harmonies, pumping rhythms. As good as the best Koray tracks for sure.

"Besides home to the Hells Angels, farmers and citrus grooves, San Bernardino, California was also where Instant Orange lived and released their first single in 1968. The band forged ahead and released another single (1973), album (1973) and two 10" EPs (1974 & 1975). All of their releases were small pressings of 100 copies and to this day, Instant Orange remains virtually unknown. Their homemade sound is a refreshing reflection of their West Coast folk-rock influences that were so prevalent during the 60s and early 70s. All original tracks with inspiration from bands like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love, Sandy Bull and others. Songs full of electric and acoustic guitars with nice doses of McGuinnesque 12-string riffing as well as many unsuspecting surprises (antiquated electronic effects, rambling rural explorations, long jams, experimental moves, stoner banter and other weirdness between songs, caveman fuzz, etc). A solid listen with enough original imagination to keep it interesting without the band creating an identity crisis by trying too hard to be something else than themselves. Hear it all on this limited double album, but grab it before it becomes elusive like some of San Bernardinos motorcycle riding inhabitants. 450 numbered/glossy heavy gatefold sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert." - Shadoks.

Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"Jokers Wild recorded three singles between 1967 and 1969 in Minnesota but the complete album Liquid Giraffe was never released. Starting as a five man band most of the material was recorded by the three main members: Lonnie Knight, Denny Johnson, and Pete Huber. Later Lonnie Knight became guitarist of The Litter for a while but he returned to Jokers Wild. What a powerful band this is. Huge amp stacks guaranteed a wall of sound on stage. Double bass drum, cool outfits, they must have been been great on stage. Damin Eih, A.L.K., and Brother Clark wrote: In 67 I saw two local bands that again amped up the juice, The Litter and Jokers Wild. Both bands played original music and had excellent psychedelic-raved guitar players, Zippy Caplan (Litter) and Lonnie Knight (Jokers Wild). That brought everything to a new level. Heavy underground rock with great composed songs, fuzz guitars, speedy drums and tight bass lines. If you think The Litter is the one you should listen to Jokers Wild. 500 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl, in a heavy sleeve." -Shadoks.

What is it, somebody seen it, it must be so rare, is it any good? This album came to us in a big deal (the guy who owned it wanted $7000 cash for it). Martha is the first of three albums composed by the Japanese artist Kamijo. The other two are TOMO (also incredibly rare) and Tomoaki Kamijo KK Band -- dear my friend (pretty too). But Martha is the best of them all. All English vocals, lots of fuzz guitar, percussion, piano and great vocals. An underground-rock album with folky elements and a west coast touch.

One night after a gig they said: No more fucking other peoples music, it is time for something new, created by us and for people who want to see us and not some fucking Beatle clone. Kissing Spell was seen as a very elite group who played very few times for large audiences, and consequently the records did not sell much. After Kissing Spell the same band became Embrujo, which is the Spanish translation for Spell and recorded another album in 1971. A true masterpiece." #d edition of 550 copies.

"This first ever album by Chilean band Los Jaivas had no name but it always was called El Volantin . It was only release in Chile in a small limited run for a real private label. Thats why someone could call it the rarest album from Chile, way rarer than Aguarturbia, Kissing Spell and Embrujo. Perhaps not as much sought after but rare as gold-dust. The music is real trippy and you can compare it close with the Lula Cortez Paêbirú album. Long passages of trippy sounds waving into fuzz guitar songs. There is a more acoustic side of the album and the second side is all electric. Really amazing music for everybody into acid trips into the wild South American wilderness. I am sure that this album was banned after 1973 when the Chilean government became nasty to musician from another planet." - Shadoks. Great record!

"When we are talking about really rare and great albums from Mexico, such as El Tarro de Mostaza, Kaleidoscope etc. Los Ovnis Hippies is perhaps the second rarest one right after Kaleidoscope. The band already made four LPs with cover songs for the same label. The 1968 Summer of Love and the political protest of the young rebel culture created the desire to produce a stronger album with own songs, heavier garage sounds and counter-culture lyrics. This album became something the Mexican society in 1968 was not ready for. It was too idealistic and too psychedelic to become popular and the original label released it with no promotion at all. Thats why this album became so good and so rare. Los Ovins are five musicians from Mexico City . Strong garage songs, great Spanish vocals, amazing guitars, organ and rough sounds. Like a musical punch right in the face of the Mexican middle-class society. No more nice guys." - Shadoks.

"Micah is a very little-known American underground rock band from the early 70s. Their music is a great blend of American hard/psychedelic rock style and British art/symphonic rock. Im Only One Man was created as a suite, each track goes into the next one, very well composed and played on an immense high standard with great Hammond organ, amazing fuzz guitars, powerful drums, driven bass lines and great vocals. This album you would expect from a major release on labels such as Epic/CBS. Micah is Gary Ohlson on organ and vocals, George Wolff on percussion and vocals, Martin Horne on lead guitar, Gus Hernandez on bass, and Bob Rowe on lead vocals. If you like the early albums of Quatermass, If, Cressida, Beggars Opera, Arcadium and Deep Purple you will love this one. It is way more sophisticated than other major label releases of the same period. This album makes the fuzz guitar aficionados happy as well as those into great Hammond sounds.

By the end of 1969 the band got a contact with the independent record company Spectator Records in Denmark and in the summer 1970 they recorded the only album, Changes in 2 days in the Spectator Record Studio in ÿlborg, Denmark. Finally the rarest and perhaps best album on the rare Danish Spectator label. The music is strongly influenced by the Cream and other hard psychedelic guitar bands.

Country: Germany

"This demo-LP was discovered in 1992 and later sold for a 4-figure sum to a collector. It appeared to be a test pressing, dated 1971. Lyrically interesting, the densely layered acoustic/electric music seems merely to serve as a vehicle for the love/hate relationship of, speculatively, the male and female vocalists. Cynical, misanthropic, (with and occasional cello). It rates highly and rightly so, because the songs are well-written, well-performed, and goes from somewhat dreamy through to aggressive. Recorded at Eden studios. You can compare the music very close to Mellow Candle, one of the best underground folk albums there is, and this is as good." - Shadoks.

The guitars are razor-sharp here which sounds great next to the harder rhythms at the bottom, and the albums mix of English and Zambian lyrics. Paul Ngozi recorded at least ten albums, another one which is famous among collectors is Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family. You will love this one if you liked the Witch and Amanaz.

The music has sophisticated brass arrangements, very much on the same level as US bands Chicago Transit Authority, The Flock and Blood Sweat & Tears, with the charm and rhythms of Brazil exotics. If you like the album by Liverpool, this one would be for you. A real summer record, should make the stoned psychedelic listener move his hips and dance or at least nod their feet.

"Numbered edition of 500, heavy gatefold sleeve on 180 gram vinyl with 4 page insert. Originally released in Iceland, 1970. This self-titled album was the only one that Icelandic progressive rock trio Odmenn ever released. It was made at a critical point in Odmenns history when the band members had agreed to take a sabbatical year while the guitarist studied law at the University of Iceland. They got together for the last time a year after the album was released and split up directly after having played only one gig. Odmenn was formed in early 1966 by the Johannsson brothers playing the most popular music clubs in Reykjavik. Most of Odmenns music could be categorized as protest songs or social studies, touching topics like anti-war protest and fights against pollution, greed and deception balanced with more positive stances like hope for a better world with love and eternal brotherhood. Psychedelic guitar pieces had become their trademark. Odmenn recorded this double album in Copenhagen with a release late December 1970. Odmenn made a great impression with their blooming mixture of energetic blues rock and was probably one of the best progressive rock bands in Northern Europe. 15 great songs released as a double album with massive 4 page insert and many photos never shown plus long liner notes." -Shadoks

This unreleased late 1960s heavy guitar-psych classic is probably (along with Cold Sun), also a previous Rockadelic LP, with widest appeal among mainstream psych fans. Despite being just 3 guys with no bass player, a dense wall of hard psychedelia is erected with moments as intense as Fraction. The opening Sea of nightmares is one of the best heavy psych tracks ever laid down, while cool remnants of teen garage and lounge/schmaltz add to the LPs underground appeal. Powerful, non-macho vocals and Jon Uzonyis triple-tracked feedback guitars makes this blow away 20th Century Zoo, Savage Resurrection, Dragonfly, etc., stunning and solid.

This album Make the Day Break was recorded live in a studio in 1974. After Norsk Suite, the music of this album takes you a step further.

This album was recorded in 1969/1970, and beside their seven original compositions they play mind-blowing versions of A Day In The Life, Strawberry Fields Forever and Isolation.

Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"From USA, 1975. 500 numbered LPs, heavy engraved sleeve, 180 gram pressing, 2-page insert. Shoes were formed in Zion, Illinois, in 1974 by brothers John and Jeff Murphy, and Gary Klebe. The Murphy brothers and Klebe were high school friends and decided to form a band following graduation. In the fall of 1974, Shoes was in its infancy as a band. Members Gary Klebe, John Murphy and Jeff Murphy had just completed their first official recording project, Heads or Tails, recorded in a basement on a Teac 4-channel tape machine. In college at this time, Gary was an architecture student signed up to study abroad at the campus in Versailles, France. In his absence John and Jeff decided that it would be a fitting tribute and testament to their commitment to the new band to record a new batch of songs in their newly established home base in Jeffs small rented flat (referred to as La Cabane) and dedicate it to their pal Gary. The title would be One In Versailles, in his honor. The inspiration of Versailles, France became the basis of an imaginary long-distance romance between a boy and his overseas girlfriend. Despite the limited resources, limited equipment and strained working schedule, the elemental sounding One In Versailles proved to be a crucial link in the fundamental development of the band. The initial pressing of 300 copies have become sought-after collectors items among record collectors the world over. Appearing here on vinyl for the first time since its limited, 1975 pressing, the songs of One In Versailles provide a look inside the very earliest days of the band and represent a snapshot in the development of Shoes, one of the first do-it-yourself bands to embrace and capitalize on the home-recording technologies. The Shoes have released 20 recordings over the years. Really amazing album. Not so power-pop as the others. This has an underground charm, with lots of heavy guitar, great vocals and tight song-structure. It sails in-between a great wave/pop album with a touch of Spoils Of War avant-garde underground on a rough but clear ocean." -Shadoks

All music tracks were cut live -- only over-dubbed lead vocals and background vocals. That year there were some 2,800 summer students attending a 6 week summer arts scholarship session -- 1,800 females and 900 males. Smack was born and played a gig several weeks later and the next thing you know, they were all "stars" of the campus. Someone from the university arranged for them to go in and record an album. An original Smack LP is rare as gold dust. We have only seen two copies for sale the past 15 years for massive money. The music features great cover versions played with extra-heavy fuzz guitar, vocals, bass and drums. The versions of the Cream and Hendrix songs are especially killer. The whole album (very well-produced) has a one-of-a-kind psychedelic feel. There are not many cover albums which give you another perspective on those known songs. This album does, for sure." - Shadoks.

Price: $44.00
"Smack was recorded in late July and early August 1968 in Lawrence, Kansas USA. The four Smack members were all summer scholarship music and arts students attending Kansas University in Lawrence, Kansas. All music tracks were cut live, only over-dubed lead vocals and background vocals. That year there were some 2800 summer students attending a 6 week summer arts scholarship session - 1800 females and 900 males. Smack was born and played a gig several weeks later and the next thing you know they were all stars of the campus. Someone from the university arranged for them to go in and record an album. An original Smack LP is rare as gold dust. We have only seen 2 copies for sale the past 15 years for massive money.

"Limited edition of 500; 180 gram vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with 12-page insert. "Before Los Speakers from Columbia recorded this album in 1968 they have already released 4 other albums for a major label. This final album (In The Wonderful World Of Ingeson which was the name of the recording studio) was recorded and produced entirely by the band with no restrictions from major label producers. What they have produced in 1968 was a musical statement and a piece of art...going in the same direction as early Mothers Of Invention but with a sweeter musical touch of band like Kissing Spell / Embrujo to it. This masterpiece is loaded with psychedelic ideas, stoned effects, backwards loops, fuzz guitar, Latin beats, great vocals and amazing lyrics. Perhaps the first Os Mutantes album might suit this direction a bit as well. We have never heard an album like this before. Here we have the rare stereo version with 12 page LP size book and gatefold sleeve. A psychedelic masterpiece and one of the best albums from Latin Americana. If you want to have your album perfect as the original pressing, attach a tiny piece of chewing gum inside the gatefold top left corner (looked like an acid trip on the original cover) and spray it with rose perfume, which they did as well." -Shadoks.

Artist: SPOILS OF WAR, THE
Title: II
Format: CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $15.00
"Originally released in 1968/70, and headed by Jim Cuomo , this is a follow-up album of unreleased live and studio material from The Spoils of War, previously released as a double LP. The Spoils Of War made some of the most inspiring but strange music from the 60s, in the same awe-inspiring vein as early Mothers Of Invention . This is music with a hearty intellectual background, combined with well-crafted and well-performed music in the key of Zappa . Other influences might indicate early Soft Machine ,Slap Happy ,Henry Cow and Faust . For open-minded listeners, The Spoils of War are a must: experiments with electronic sounds, compositions and performances of beautiful harmonies and songs, and all circa 1967/68. How in the world could he make music like this so early? Well, it must have been the inspiring influence of Jim Cuomos musical teacher John Cage . Even today the music of The Spoils Of War goes far beyond most other modern pop music and will be inspiring for many years from now." - Shadoks.

"LP 450 numbered/heavy sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert. "Shortly after Micks first album See The Morning, while waiting for the Deroy pressings, he started working on Lady Sunrise. The songs on this concept album were created during a particularly turbulent emotional period. We think most of these songs are some of his best, and as usual, the lyrics were written with his own blood -- both metaphorically and in reality. Mick composed all songs and played all instruments, so this album was recorded sound on sound. Twelve great songs, bittersweet and very touching. Just perfect, as we would expect from Mick Stevens music." - Shadoks.

Title: The River/The Englishman
Format: Double CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"These are the last recordings of Mick Stevens, originally released in 1977 ( The River ) and 1979 ( The Englishman ), respectively. Mick Stevens arrived on the music scene and then disappeared, seemingly without anybody noticing. Two sublime, inventive, and beautifully-crafted homemade albums in the early 1970s -- See The Morning and No Savage Word -- (previously reissued by Shadoks, SHAD 038CD) were evidence of the superior songwriting and arranging skills that he possessed. Though highly personalized, the performances, the songs, the musicianship, and the painstaking (low-budget and homespun) production of these first two records gave them a sound and a feel that suggested that here was a real talent on the launch-pad of a musical career of some substance. By 1977, and with no record contract in sight, Mick took a group of musician friends into Spaceward Studios in Cambridge (England) and recorded the tracks for The River , the first CD in this 2CD collection. The dreamy vocal layers so prevalent in the earlier albums are subservient to a much harder and "rockier" sound, while Stevens electric guitar-playing is of the highest order. Since the 70s were a time of much creativity and wholly new approaches to sound, a number of musical influences can be heard in Stevens music on this particular album. The opening to the lengthy "Suite (To A Seagull)" has overtones of King Crimson or Gentle Giant , developing into a Yes -like section and a middle-eight reminiscent of early Steely Dan . The album The Englishman is self-assured, confidently and beautifully played by a bunch of first-rate musicians including Ric Sanders of Soft Machine , the Albion Band and Fairport Convention , and Michael Gregory -- whose crisp drumming patterns are a real highlight.  The track "The Englishman" is the clear apex of the album, with Stevens voice and solo acoustic guitar completely filling the audio waves in a song about an Englishman overseas. The original vinyl pressings of all Mick Stevens albums are now collectors items, all exorbitantly expensive. These songs have never sounded as good as they do on these CDs due to the care and attention of the transfer process in removing all the surface noise to be found on the original vinyl and tapes." - Shadoks.

"USA 1974/76. "The Strange are from Olympia, WA, close to the Canadian border. The Strange are Tom Hackett, Robert Rensel, David Chamberlain, Rick Rackleff plus Mike Pitcher, Don Morris & Carl Dexter. This art-rock underground band recorded the Souvenir Album over a period of several years released in a tiny pressing in 1976 on the Yantis Record label. With a touch of west coast music and lots of Mothers of Invention influences, this album is really something special. As special as The Spoils Of War and as complex as Time and Think Dog, with Frank Zappa style wah-wah guitar, great vocals, piano, effects, some horns, and a well-balanced mixture of heavy psych guitar tracks and twisted underground folk tunes. If you think the first Spoils Of War album on Shadoks is a great album and the early Mothers albums are the ones you always kept you will be very very happy with this album. If you want to hear what the band sound like now you should check out The Grufs Coming Back for More album."

"South Africa, 1971. Suck where from Johannesburg, S.A. In their short history (only eight months) Suck made one album and created more mayhem than most bands do over a ten year career. But what an album. Time to Suck is a highly charged package of manic drumming, scorching guitars and sublime wailing vocals. Political statements on stage (in South Africa) against the war. This one is not for folk fans, no moonshine mellow candle, this one kicks ass and is pure adrenaline, a real pusher. If you think Black Sabbath, Uriah Heap, Deep Purple, MC 5 and Grand Funk Railroad are your tip of the iceberg you might consider this one as your future favored album. Full of hard-psychedelic tracks with Louis "Moose" Forer on bass, Steve "Gil" Gilroy on guitar, who worked in the U.K. with Mick Abrahams from Jethro Tull, Saverio Grande on drums and Andrew Ionnides on vocals.

A ship is dipping trough the sparkling blue sea, sitting on deck are Tristan and Ysolde. We have never seen or heard an album like this before. The music is stunning, the original package was outstanding, the whole presentation just beautiful. I am sure this albumTristan was not produced to sell. It came in a hand-laminated 10" tape box, a booklet with all the lyrics, and two 10 inch hand-cut acetates. The concept of the rock opera Tristan reminds me a lot of the two 12" acetates of Shuttah - The Image Maker Part 1+2. I am sure both albums were produced in an excellent studio with pro-musicians to help seal the deal for a release on a big label. So some promo guys out there should have some original copies. The music is electric folk with a progressive touch, much better than most albums we have heard from Britain. Male and female vocals, a wide range of instruments, great percussion and first class guitar, plus organ parts. Some songs are more acoustic, some electric. A well balanced mixture of an underground concept album which beats most other UK albums of the same kind. This album is a pure surprise. We just love it." - Shadoks.

This short-lived band rapidly rose to fame, receiving rave reviews for live performances, but in fact their music was way ahead of its time. They were unable to seal a recording contract so they formed their own label - Swan Records. When the album Whats Hidden There? was released in autumn 1972, it got mixed reviews and sold only a few hundred copies, leaving the band with a great album but, sadly, not the income they had been hoping for. Recorded at Londons Majestic Studios, the album was cut and pressed in England. Perhaps one of the best heavy prog/underground albums from Scandinavia, with amazing guitar & all English vocals.

Wild fuzz guitars all over (how do they get those sounds?), African beats and extra cool vocals. Complete stoned music. People say it is easily one of the best African psychedelic rock album ever recorded -- raw, rough, with a gaping charm and tons of front and center fuzz guitar over basic, ultra catchy rock/pop tunes reminiscent in style to maybe the Velvet Underground.

Price: $40.00
"Numbered edition of 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl; glossy gatefold sleeve with insert. "With the help of many music friends and a lot of patience, we could finally arrange a deal to reissue the 3 albums by the South African band The Third Eye for the first time. The original pressing came out on Polydor. Perhaps Third Eye is the best band from S.A. with the most innovative and complex music. Most music lovers would vote Freedoms Children as the biggest influence in S.A,. rock, but Third Eye will share at least half of that cake. In cooperation with Dawn Selby (Hammond organ) and her brother Ron (guitar), this project came to life again. They where based in Durban, a coastal city several hundred miles away from the recording and musical hub of Johannesburg and started playing in 1968. The first album Awakening came out in 1969 when the female organ player Dawn Selby was only 14 years old. Just imagine her age when you listen to the amazing organ and piano tracks. Awakening was released in 1969 followed by 2 more albums Searching and Brother just one year later in 1970. What a musical output in such a short time. The band and composer must have sat on a volcano where they just waited to burst their music out onto the rock universe. Awakening is the most complex album of the three, with great brass arrangements, piano, Hammond organ, fuzz-guitar and vocals full of soul. Musically going in the direction of bands such as Electric Flag, The Flocks Dinosaur Swamps, Chicago, The Nice and Al Cooper. Pure electric underground of the best sort." -Shadoks

The music is closer to the album Awakening without the brass arrangements. More organ based compositions with beautiful vocals and guitars. We must mention here the amazing drumming and bass which holds the complete tracks together and drives them forwards. As a musical comparison we would mention again the bands from the US and UK underground, such as Electric Flag, Chicago and Keef Hartley Band. But we must say, if bands from South Africa were not banned in Europe and the USA at the time the albums by The Third Eye came out, they would have become as popular and even more as the mentioned bands from USA and UK.

Many collectors who have basically everything in their collection are missing this one.

Guitarist and composer Gunnar Thórgarson, bass player and singer Rúnar Júlíusson and lead vocalist Shady Owens of Hljómar had been plotting this for some months, along with organist Karl Sighvatsson and drummer Gunnar Jökull Hákonarson of Flowers, before the bands genesis was announced publicly. These were troubled times and Trúbrot had countless hurdles to overcome before the band eventually fell apart early in 1973. After the debut album was released in December 1969 by EMI, vocalist Shady Owens announced that she was quitting. Trúbrot recorded 3 more albums. Tony Branwell of Apple Records was saying these were one of the two best bands he had seen perform on stage in the preceding six months.

After a last concert in Iceland with the original line up, they invited Led Zeppelin and became friends with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. When Jimmy and Robert returned to their hotel at four oclock in the morning they were amazed to discover that the sun was still shining bright. The sight of the midnight sun, the snow-capped glaciers and the Icelandic geysers apparently inspired them to write The Immigrant Song for the third Led Zeppelin album. Trúbrot was very much influenced by the electric music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young by Led Zeppelin and Keith Emerson. Trúbrot went to London to have Orange amplifiers custom-made for the band, and to Copenhagen to record Undir Áhrifum at the Wifoss Studio. The album became the best album of 1970. Really amazing male English vocals, great arrangements, guitars, organ. Psychedelic/progressive rock of the best kind strongly influenced by British underground.

Beside the other great album from Venezuela, Ladies WC, this release is as good and as important. The band has only released a couple of singles and played a lot of great live concerts. Those bands from José Romero on guitar changed names from LSD to Tsee Mud and to Bacro. In-between those bands, José lived in USA and was part of the band The Del-Vikings, which included a concert at the Madison Square Garden. José went back to Venezuela and continued playing with his band Bacro.

"South Africa, 1971. It was the worst of times in Johannesburg white suburbs. The Beatles were banned on state radio. Haircut regulations were merciless. Life was an unutterable hell of boredom and conformity, but lo: salvation awaited. They came from the north in the summer of 69, armed with axes and scarabs, long hair streaming behind them, and proceeded to slay the youth of the nation with an arsenal of murderous rock tunes. They were the biggest thing our small world had ever seen, our Led Zeppelin, our Black Sabbath, maybe even our Rolling Stones. They were Otis Waygood. After two albums released on EMI S.A. the album Ten Light Claps And A Scream was simply the best Otis Waygood record and among collectors the most sought after. The music is influenced by the British underground for sure. Bloodwin Pig, Steamhammer, IF are working in the same field. Great guitars and vocals, blues influenced underground rock, sax, organs and well crafted composition and arrangements making this album a unique masterpiece.

Title: Desert Rain
Format: 10"
Label: Shagrat
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Shagrat Records is delighted to announce the release of a 3-track 10" EP by the short-lived Darrow Mosley Band, cut in 1973. The band was a vehicle for the prodigious talents of Bob Mosley (lead vocals, bass guitar) and Chris Darrow (lead vocals, guitar) -- Mosley had been an integral member of Moby Grape, one of the greatest California bands of the late 60s. Darrow had been a founding member of Kaleidoscope, the hugely talented Clairemont-based quintet that subsequently has been recognised as one of the first rock groups to play world music. In 1973 both Chris and Bob decided they wanted to be in a band again and their mutual manager Michael OConnor suggested they form a group together - drawing on the energy and style of vintage Stones and Faces and adding more than a dash of the prevalent SoCal country rock scene to the mix, Bob and Chris were joined by lead guitarist Frank Reckard (subsequently in Emmy Lou Harriss Band for 14 years), keyboard player Lroen Newkirk and drummer Johnny Craviott (Ry Cooder, Arlo Guthrie, Buffy St Marie) -- they cut 3 songs to try and get Warner Bros interested -- sadly Warners passed on the demos and they have remained unheard till now -- the A-side is a rocker featuring Darrow on lead vocals and was originally recorded on his eponymous second album done for UA. The flipside has Bob Mosley as lead vocalist -- a treat for all those who already know what a masterful singer this Norse god can be - first up is a soulful, smouldering version of the Temptations I Wish It Would Rain that also boasts some dexterous picking from Reckard. The EP closes with a new version of Bobs exquisite Beautiful Day originally done for the Grapes 69 record. The band split soon after but these recordings are an integral link in the chain that binds Moby Grape with Fine Wine and the Ducks (Neil Youngs legendary summer of 77 Santa Cruz bar band). Packaged in a beautifully mind-blowing sleeve by legendary British psychedelic designer John Hurford (IT, OZ, Dandelion Records etc) and featuring sleeve notes by Chris Darrow, this EP is an absolute must for fans of Kaleidoscope and Moby Grape everywhere. Strictly limited edition of 499 copies." - Shagrat.

"Second archival release in one year by this fabled late 60s band, featuring Bruce Barthol -- ex-Country Joe & the Fish. Formed in Croydon, Surrey, UK in 1969 by Barthol and two mates from Berkeley, California, Gary Peterson and Phil Greenberg, Formerly Fat Harry were managed by the legendary Blackhill Enterprises (Peter Jenner and Andrew King, original managers of the Floyd) -- they played many gigs in the UK before their demise in 1972, such as two of the Hyde Park free concerts, Phun City, and the 1970 Bath Festival, as well as many college and club gigs. The bands one and only eponymous LP on Harvest Records didnt really reflect their true capabilities (Hux released a far more interesting selection of material from the groups own archive early this year Goodbye For Good) -- a fabulous mix of country, blues and psychedelia. This Shagrat LP reflects another side of the band -- FFH could also be very experimental, playing in odd time signatures and they were completed by a series of the greatest UK jazz drummers -- Laurie Allan, Alan Jackson and John Marshall. Side two of this limited edition 500-only vinyl LP features two free music tracks recorded in 1969 -- something the band rarely did live. Side one features a 24-minute version of their much-loved favorite Mariachi Riff, which has been favorably compared to the best live work by both the Grateful Dead and Quicksilver Messenger Service -- an epic acid-rock tour de force. It was recorded live at Aylesbury Friars in December 1970. The original tapes have been digitally transferred and mastered by Ron Geesin. Packaged in a beautifully mind-blowing sleeve by legendary British psychedelic designer Mike McInnerney (who designed the sleeve for The Whos Tommy), the LP comes with a nice insert with photos, gig adverts from the era and an evocative essay about the band by long-time fan, Colin Hill.

Title: Waiting For the Moon
Format: 7"
Label: Shagrat
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Hugely obscure, Horace grew out of some informal hash jams that guitarist/bass player Jim Mercer and drummer Ric Parnell held in the autumn of 1970. The music has a strong bucolic yet at times experimental feel to it, conjuring up comparisons with Traffic, Caravan, Frank Zappas seminal Hot Rats album, and the more pastoral moments of early Stackridge. Ric Parnell, perhaps best known for his role as the spontaneously combusting drummer Mick Shrimpton in This Is Spinal Tap is a revelation as the bands lead vocalist and the tracks are made even more special by Mike Piggotts magisterial violin playing, adding edge, textures and atmosphere to the songs. Waiting for the Moon is a moody blues shuffle somewhat reminiscent of the Greasebands debut LP for Harvest cut around the same time, whilst See the Sun shines with an exquisite West Coast aura, Parnells scatting in the closing moments reminiscent of the great David Crosby! The closing instrumental, Mongrel Polyop based around some haunting violin riffs is just plain beautiful - a kind of Brit version of Peaches en Regalia with Curtiss cascading grand piano runs to the fore. The 7" comes in a beautiful full-colour gatefold sleeve, and inner bag designed by psychedelic artist John Hurford with extensive sleeve notes by Colin Hill. Pressed on heavyweight 70g vinyl, it is a limited to 250 copies and is available only on this format." - Shagrat.

"The legendary late 60s West Coast band, Mad River. The release includes a soft-cover book and 12" five-track EP pressed on 180 gram vinyl, featuring previously-unissued music by the band, in a limited edition run of 500 copies. Mad River formed at Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio in 1965 and inspired what was happening in San Francisco moved to Berkeley in early 1967 just in time for the Summer of Love. During their brief time together they released a now highly-sought-after 7" EP and two albums for Capitol Records. The Shagrat release is a substantial addition to their catalogue. Housed in the same sleeve as the vinyl 12", the 12" x 12" 36 page, full color, mini-coffee table book features a 26,000 word history of the band written by Ugly Things journalist David Biasotti, revealing many unknown stories and details about this legendary, Berkeley-based quintet. The book is profusely illustrated with many photos and other memorabilia which have never been seen before, and tells the bands remarkable history, how they were involved in the emergent long hair counter culture and the movement against the Vietnam War (then at its height), their relationship with the Diggers and the Hells Angels, the Beat Poets and most interesting of all their friendship and collaboration with the late writer Richard Brautigan. Acting as a kind of soundtrack to the book, the 12" record contains five cuts that have never been officially released before, including the four numbers the band cut in Dayton Ohio in early 1967 as a demo before they re-located to California. These show that whilst the band was influenced by the likes of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Country Joe & the Fish (whom drummer Greg Dewey eventually joined and played Woodstock with) and their friends the Youngbloods, they were also pretty fully formed before they set off for the West Coast, as the embryonic Windchimes included here testifies. It was former Youngblood Jerry Corbitt who produced the other long-lost gem from 69, Jersey Slooin this set -- showing that away from the long flowing psychedelic numbers, the band could also write concise, accessible, two-minute rockers (even if the lyrics were completely whacked out!)."-Shagrat.

Artist: LOS SIQUICOS LITORALENOS
Title: Sonido Chipadelico
Format: LP
Label: Sham Palace
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Sham Palace (USA) and Annihaya (Lebanon) are pleased to present from the mystical locus of Curuzú Cuatiá, in Corrientes, rural northeastern Argentina, Los Siquicos Litoraleños, with their first international full-length release. The result: a unique triumph of homegrown rural psychedelia, standing alone on the edge of an unchartered vanguard. Los Siquicos have spent the past decade recording and performing mountains of material and distilling it into a rare form of ultra-cerebral roots music from the countryside; rich with strange passion, beauty, experimentation, horror and humor. Corrientes sits in the Argentine Mesopotamic region, in the area known as el Litoral. Inhabitants of this region are known as Litoraleños. Los Siquicos Litoraleños (The Psychics of el Litoral) arent running from their musical heritage, they are staring straight at it -- spinning it around, refracting it, and transmuting it into something that is probably one of the most genuine things that has happened to folk, rock, experimental or psychedelic music in many years. Having met through various musical projects in the mid-2000s, Los Siquicos formed as a trio in 2004, determined to develop an unheard style of music. They created their own genre -- Chipadelia, (a reference to the traditional chipá bread, typical of northeast Argentina and Paraguay). It involves equalizational demolition therapy -- which they describe as using sound to change peoples perceptions, and words to produce cognitive dissonance in order to free the masses from the prison of fixed ideas and prejudices. Being a peripheral band living in a semi-rural town, Los Siquicos remained outsiders to the Argentinian rock circuit for quite a while, though their unpredictable live performances in Buenos Aires caused a stir amongst the local scene. Their shows often feature extended line-ups, with members cloaked in surreal gaucho costumes, playing segments of free-music and altered versions of chamamé and cumbia tunes influenced by the myriad regional gaucho dance bands. All the while, projections of cows, fractals, UFOs and their beloved countryside play out in the background. At home, theyre affectionately referred to as El Pink Floyd de los pobres -- the poor mans Pink Floyd. Over time, the group has gained underground acclaim both nationally and abroad after sending their signals out in the form of self-released CDs, internet presence, and a handful of European tours. This collection has been culled from multiple recordings made between 2005 and 2010. It showcases some of the finest compositional moments in the groups dense and damaged repertoire -- pitched-down cumbias soaked in dub brine, swirling solar instrumentals, and surrealist, shamanic lyrics laid across guitars, drums, tapes and electronics. Forty-four minutes of deep, multi-fidelity electric and acoustic psychic sound-forms for a better today. Los Siquicos Litoraleños are the contemporary group you keep hoping exist, but can never find. If you were to reach for spiritual comparisons, you wouldnt be forgetting the most spirited moments from Sun City Girls, Butthole Surfers, Faust, Os Mutantes, Captain Beefheart or The Residents. Sonido Chipadelico opens with the mind-melting psych-rocker Cinta Planeteria -- like a Latin American time-travel experiment gone wrong. Cachaka Espejo, Tenemos Semillas and No Sabemos Nada reinvent cumbia radio tunes as if heard from a distance of at least two blocks away on a dirt road in the barrio, then deconstructed, propelled into the outer ether, and beamed back into a burning dub transistor. El Chipa Chiriri is a subverted chamamé-styled track -- revealing the recipe for the local Corrientes cheese bread. Necesita Ecualisacion is a call for aural and mental equilibrium encouraging change rapidly from the present state of things to an improved and more complex, flexible state. The hypnotic Sirena Chunga y la Movida Solar is perhaps one of the strangest folkloric songs ever committed to tape -- not unlike what light must hear when it travels inside of a vacuum. Si, Si, Si is an uptempo, angular anthem in collaboration with Dutch experimental duo Static Tics. Also included is Los Siquicos haunting acid-ballad cover of Quizás, Quizás, and much more -- further into the greater depths of sound and surprise..." -Mark Gergis.

Title: Leh Jani
Format: Double LP
Label: Sham Palace
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"First release on Sham Palace, a new label from key Sublime Frequencies conspirator Mark Gergis. "Leh Jani" -- the legendary Omar Souleyman track -- was originally released in Syria as a sprawling 30-minute epic groove, alongside two additional tracks. The entire 60-minute cassette album was recorded live to tape in 1998 at the home studio of producer Zuhir Maksi in the village of Ras Al Ain in northeastern Syria. Many of Omars early tapes were recorded in this fashion to replicate the feeling of his live wedding party performances while minimizing the inherent recording chaos and distractions of those parties. The full track -- featured here, reveals plenty more twists and turns from synth and saz during its hypnotic course. "Leh Jani" appeared in slightly edited form on the original Syrian-issued tape, which was distributed throughout the country for a short period of time. The song was further truncated for Omars debut Western compilation, Highway To Hassake (SF 031CD) and a concurrently assembled internet video clip of the track helped earn Omar his first attention in the West. The album begins with a lively introduction followed by a majestic mawal, before showcasing the incredible uptempo and previously-unreleased "Salamat Galbi Bidek." All tracks are embellished with the virtuosic folk stylings of longtime collaborators Rizan Said on keyboards and Hamid Souleyman on electric bozouk. This complete version of the original Leh Jani cassette album features an hour of music, and ensures an all-night Syrian dabke party no matter where on Earth you rest the needle. First release on Sham Palace, a new label from key Sublime Frequencies conspirator Mark Gergis." -Sham Palace.

Title: Dabke -- Sounds Of The Syrian Houran
Format: LP
Label: Sham Palace
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Dabke is the celebratory music and dance found throughout the Levantine Middle East. By the mid-1990s, a new wave of high-energy electronic dabke music had emerged -- to be heard at weddings, parties and cassette-stalls region-wide. New wave dabke was first introduced to Western ears by way of Omar Souleyman and his northeastern Syrian sounds. This collection presents a hypnotic and diverse selection of electrified dabke dance cuts from a region in the south of Syria known as the Houran. The Houran refers to a swathe of south Syria and northwestern Jordan, beginning just below Damascus, and encompassing the Syrian cities of Daraa, Suweida, Bosra and the Golan Heights. Its populations include Syrians, Bedouin, Druze, Palestinians and Jordanians -- and this unique confluence of cultures is evident throughout these tracks. Hourani dabke is relentless and commanding, driven by heavy rhythms and weaving synthesizers. Long passages of intense musical fervor are punctuated by fierce male vocals, belting out calls for the audience to dance, alongside the lyrical laments and tributes to love and lust. But the sound of the Houran is best defined by the mejwiz -- a double-reed bamboo flute famed for its droney overtones as well as shrill, buzzing melodic lines achieved by circular breathing techniques. Historically, Hourani dabke was played with mejwiz, hand percussion and narrative vocal chants. Electronic beats have inevitably embellished the contemporary sound, magnifying the intensity -- and the mejwiz players have taken their craft to the microphone, in order to maintain the instruments prominence over the resulting volume. The sampled mijwiz sound has its own specific qualities and in recent years, can even be heard in combination with its organic counterpart. The recordings featured in this collection were captured live to the mixing desk during weddings and parties throughout the Houran during the 1990s and 2000s, and represent a mere sliver of the sounds found in tape and disc vendors throughout the region. Limited pressing of 1,000." -Sham Palace.

Title: Damp Circuits: The Golden Era of Synthesizers in East Asia - Volume 1
Format: 7"
Label: Sham Palace
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"This special limited edition 7" EP showcases the fantastic and underrated synthesizer sounds of Hong Kongs Oscar Young. These four instrumental cuts from 1976 see the prolific musician and producer modernizing Chinese folk melodies and rocketing them into the space-age. Solid synth leads are backed with fuzz and wah-wah guitars, tight funk bass lines and haunting organs -- integrating shades of surf, soul, rock, and disco into his unique sound. Multifaceted rhythms feature punchy electronic beats peppered with hand-drums and other natural percussion, while synths of all shapes and textures pan throughout the spacious mixes. Youngs adventurous and unpredictable technique and production never missed a beat -- unless it was intended. Oscar Young -- known also as Yang Road Fire, or Yang Daohuo -- worked prolifically in the East Asian rock and pop music scene between the 1960s and 1980s. He first gained acclaim as an arranger, working with singers such as Teresa Teng, Xiao-Jun Huang and go-go bands like the Apollo, as well as creating scores for movies. His classical background allowed him to create a perfect hybrid of traditional Chinese music and new electronic sounds and instruments of the time. Young released multiple volumes of albums: his own series spans over 30 volumes, while his collaborations with the Apollo Band yielded an equal amount. His music can be compared to the likes of Martin Denny or Dick Hymans synthesizer-infused exotica, or the high-profile Moog pioneers, Perry & Kingsley. The tracks featured on this EP are from his booming period of electronic experimentation during the early-to-mid 1970s, and represent a mere sliver of his giant catalog and immeasurable talent -- a short-but-sweet introduction to the wondrous synthesizer world of Oscar Young." - Sham Palace.

Format: LP
Label: Sharps Rock
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Sharpies were the terror-teen cast of a Richard Allen novel that never was. Although largely synonymous with the early-to-mid 1970s, reports of their violent clashes with rival gangs of Mods are documented as early as 1966. Bored, working-class, suburban kids, their teenage rampage began in Melbourne, Australia, but soon there were Sharpie gangs forming in Sydney, Perth, and beyond. For a while they were the untouchables, ruling dances, discos and public transport with their fists. Sharpies were fiercely territorial and divided into different chapters according to location. They would often wage aggressive wars within their tightly delineated sub-gangs, although Mods always remained their archenemies. Sharpie boys and girls wore similar uniforms: a slim-fitting, ribbed and collared cardigan called a conny, t-shirts, tight jeans (Lee or Levis), and big platform shoes. Hair was worn short or shaved with long wisps at the back, influenced by the British ska, mod, and skinhead subcultures. Sharpie girls had their hair slightly longer and often with colored streaks -- Bowie-red was their color of choice. Boys often bleached their hair. Tattoos were popular, although many were homemade and poorly executed. Their diet was anthemic glam-rock, kung-fu movies, and Kubricks A Clockwork Orange. As the 1970s drew to a close, and new styles like punk and disco began to emerge, Sharpies started to fade. By 1979 they were all but gone. Today they are recognized as an important part of Australian youth culture and social history. This compilation features rare tracks and cult anthems that were the soundtrack to the rise of this Australian answer to the skinhead subculture: with the likes of the Hush, Fat Daddy, Supernaut, Skyhooks, John Paul Young; it cant be missing in any Killed By Death type collection." -Sharps Rock.

"Gary War, the mysterious upstart from Brooklyn, NY has just released his debut LP this winter on SHDWPLY/DISARO Records. Playing with vast, sweeping echoes, softly sung lyrics, and infusing sonic textures through synth-driven overtures, Gary Wars album, New Raytheonport takes us through the often banal sonics of the psychedelic form with a fresh take on what seems at first, an aggregate of the past couple of decades of drug-influenced music, and drops us dead center, at the doorstep to La La Land. His tonal insobriety, from one song to the next is a true sign of the times, where artists are driven to explore different avenues, melding genres, vocal styles and instrumentation to arrive somewhere new, all the while taking the listener along for the ride. Pulling from influences that hold as much up to Chrome as they do Syd Barret, Gary War is able to wrangle them from every corner, and he even covers The Alan Parsons Project without sounding misguided,or a late arriving hippie on a hotbox high. Instead, Gary War creates a sound that wisps through the knobby branches of the past and sumptuously uproots our notions of the boundaries of psychedelia." - www.victimoftime.com.

"Ranging from discordant, hazy slacker gems, stunted tribal jazz improv to woozy drunken psych pop. The general off-kilter madness is very fitting of this Shdwply imprint, I love the production on these records-proper old-school reel to reel tape recordings capturing progressive thinking musicians fannying around in basements attempting to hit on something new. I must admit theres a real oddsnsods feel to this album but for fans of pioneering early 90s labels such as Siltbreeze and the likes of early Sebadoh or even some of the recent noise/dissonance output from acts such as Ashtray Navigations-this album has plenty of juicy sonic fallout & monged psychedelia to offer the casual yankophile."-Norman Records

Artist: PC WORSHIP
Title: Stone Age
Format: LP
Label: Shdwply
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"PC WORSHIP is GARY WAR/TEETH MOUNTAIN member, JUSTIN FRYE who lives in Brooklyn, many of the recordings stem from a mix of song ideas, improvisations, and all night recording sessions at his studio space in the Market Hotel; a Brooklyn DIY space dedicated to putting on all ages shows. This collection of recordings was made between 2006 and 2009 and represents an era of collective output and collaboration with many other local musicians. This particular collection of music was recorded on a Teac 4-track reel-to-reel tape machine, a Radio Shack handheld cassette recorder and various computers. Although Frye spearheads this project, there are all sorts of other players involved and the live show can range from a solo performance to members in double digits. The sound is all over the board, containing elements of free jazz, grunge, psychedelic punk and pop to create a wash of consonant and disorientating sound." -Shdwply

Artist: SORE EROS
Title: Know Touching
Format: LP
Label: Shdwply
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"With Know Touching, SORE EROS have crafted a record that is simultaneously dense and soothingly melodic, fulfilling the considerable promise of their debut, 2009s Second Chants. For this record, the band (ROBERT ROBINSON and ADAM LANGELLOTTI) made a conscious departure from its debut, recording the album direct to a 1/2-inch 8 track reel-to-reel without the aid of computers. From this the band emerged with a record that blooms with melody and innocent joy that bring to mind such similarly spaced out artists as Atlas Sound and Kurt Vile. When patched together, this detailed attention to arrangement and dreamy melodic sensibilities combine to make Know Touching an effortlessly beautiful record." -Shdwply.

Title: Henry
Format: 7"
Label: Shdwply
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Definitely one of the more ambitious and mysterioso bands of this run-down, SUPER VACATIONS provide a perfect example of a group turning the limitations of home-recording to their advantage, assembling a beguiling psych rock sound from the palette of slightly warped rock n pop elements at their disposal. Their debut album burns through sixteen songs in about twenty-five minutes, each of them a swirling wonder of crisply recorded hi-hat n snare grooves, twangin, FX heavy surf guitar, hazy layers of psychedelic jangle, occasional bursts of chaotic space-fuzz washout and ultra-compressed vocal tracks that range from pristine, chanted harmonies to distorted answering machine skree"-Shdwply

Title: Thicker Milk
Format: LP
Label: Shdwply
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Thicker Milk is the new sprawling, twenty-one song opus which finds the band, since the release of their self-titled debut in 2008, expanding in every possible way. Now a formidable five piece, the bands exploratory psych-surf nuggets are bigger, bolder, more aggressive, and occasionally darker than before. The riffs are instantly memorable, the melodies blissfully sloppy and the psych expertly concentrated. Think Captain Beefheart, Guided By Voices, Kinks and 13th Floor Elevators whizzed up in a heady audio cocktail of pop goodness. Recorded over the past two years by the band across various locations, Thicker Milk is a record that dips its toes in psych, punk, surf, pop and points in-between without ever sounding nostalgic or dated. Over the course of twenty-one tracks in thirty-five minutes, the band whittle their precision riffs and ethereal harmonies down to perfect pockets of sound." - Shdwply

Artist: COBB, ALEX
Title: Marigold and Cable
Format: LP
Label: Shelter Press
Country: France
Price: $22.00
"Marigold and Cable marks an indelible new phase in the trajectory of Alex Cobbs solo recordings and prior missives as Taiga Remains. The albums four compositions are streamlined and focused, finding a balance between studied contours and compositional intuition. Shades of early Stars of the Lid and Kevin Drumms lambent drones are apt starting points, but Cobb routes them through a live set up without the aid of loops or synthesizers. Marigold and Cable is heavy with meaning and intent, but buoyant and almost tender in execution, allowing filtered harmonies and veiled melodies to waver and sparkle amid clouded atmospherics. On "Rain at the Fete," Cobb wrings his guitar through processing that transforms the instrument into shadowy piano notes and smudged choral works. Later, Maxwell Croy of EN weaves koto lines throughout "Oversong" to stunning effect. The album was recorded during late spring in coastal southern California, in which cool temperatures and overcast skies belie the regions usual warmth and sunshine. Cobb uses this weather pattern to inform Marigold and Cable, an album that is perhaps the signal accomplishment in his lengthy resume. Mastered by James Plotkin, pressed on 180 gram black vinyl, in a limited edition of 500 copies worldwide." - Shelter Press.

Artist: ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE
Title: The Vastness Is Bearable Only Through Love
Format: LP
Label: Shelter Press
Country: France
Price: $22.00
"New LP from Ensemble Economique aka Brian Pyle, one-half of Humboldt avant-abstractionists Starving Weirdos and RV Paintings. "Weve long loved the SWs sprawling rhythmic dronescapery, and on his own, Pyle explores similar sonic territory, but Pyles approach sans partners seems to be more dense and dark, caustic and abrasive, the rhythmic element balancing the atmospheric elements, like here on the title-track, which spreads out over all of the first side. A thick, swirling low-end thrum oozes and undulates, its a hazy blurred rumble, over which Pyle layers heaving shards of crunch, thick throbs, deep bell-like tones, rhythmic machine gun stutters, all of which pile up and overlap, creating a soft cacophony of clatter and crunch, chug and churn, a strangely haunting, and sorta noisy, almost industrial creepscape, that sounds like some weird hybrid of Wolf Eyes, Philip Jeck and Umberto, performed by some strange robotic minimalist chamber ensemble. A swirling, heady, and darkly psychedelic barrage of loops and rhythms, layers and textures, mesmerizing and intense. The flipside is another permutation of Pyles abstract, beat-laden drones, another thick, swirling morass of sitar-like buzz and sci-fi synth squelch, this time the beats buried, little flurries of stutter and shuffle, squalls of glitchy tangle, more coloring the proceedings than driving them. The last track is a tense, soundtrack-y stretch of layered buzz and haunting melody -- a sprawl of pulsing high-end over deep, ominous rumbles, like the music from the scariest moment in some lost Italian giallo, stretched out into minutes instead of seconds, all tension, no release, brooding and intense, haunting and mesmerizing, fantastic stuff." -Aquarius Records.

Artist: NOVELLER & THISQUIETARMY
Title: Reveries
Format: LP
Label: Shelter Press
Country: France
Price: $22.00
"Reveries is the first collaborative effort of Noveller & Thisquietarmy, two critically-acclaimed lonesome composers welcoming us on an expanded guitar-based journey. Noveller is the solo project of Brooklyn-based composer Sarah Lipstate while Thisquietarmy is Eric Quach, unstoppable globe-trotting musician from Montreal. Both use the guitar as their main instrument, creating some of the most impressive, hypnotic, and richly-textured electric guitar works from the past years. Empty architecture, luminosity, rocks and deserted zones. Somewhere between Antonionis Zabriskie Point and Tarkovskys Stalker, there is a walk, a wait and an epiphany. It happened. You were not there. You just read it. Or maybe its the synopsis of it. Its written on the back cover of a corny paperback that girl with the golden cap lost in the train you were just in. She was in a hurry. Youll never know its end, you just have to stick to the rocks and to the music. Tomorrow is another day and tonight might be the night. Recorded in January 2013 at Electric Blue Studios in Brooklyn, this new album finds Sarah & Eric in their most luminous and aerial state, writing together layers of blissful drones, resulting in a highly meditative and emotional four-part piece. Pressed on white vinyl in an edition of 500 copies worldwide." - Shelter Press.

"In 1998, after attending close to every one of the Ensembles bimonthly concerts at the West Bank School of Music for well over a decade, Michael Mann decided the group was long overdue for the opportunity to once again present its work in a concert hall. (The school, you see, is actually an old house; the Ensemble presenting its work in the "living room".) So, he booked a hall on a local college campus for "Two Evenings of Improvised Music", wherein Milo Fine and Steve Gnitka, the nucleus of the Ensemble, collaborated with four of their most stalwart associates -- Scott Newell, John OBrien, Elliot Fine and Jason S. Shapiro -- in trio and quartet formats. He also made arrangements for the event to be recorded. Thus, this triple CD features the vast majority of the music played during those two evenings." - Shih Shih Wu Ai.

Limited edition of 500 copies. "I began working with Steve Gnitka in late 1975, after an introduction arranged by Scott Newell, with whom I had already been collaborating for a few years. (Primarily playing guitar, Scott was a member of the Ensemble at the time, and, as he was leaving town, recommended Steve as his ⿿replacement⿝.) Shih Shih Wu Ai 12/13 marks Steves and my 15th collaborative LP and/or CD, while Scotts work with me has previously been documented on SURGES/SUSPENSIONS, COMME TOUJOURS (Shih Shih Wu Ai 7-9) and KOI/KLOPS (Emanem 4060). I first met Charles Gillett in the late nineties, but it wasnt until a few years later (2002) that we really started getting to know one another and, after being exposed to his distinctive approach to the guitar, began collaborating. Charles work with me has previously been documented on SENILITÿ (Emanem 4132) and CONTIGUOUS CHUNKS (Shih Shih Wu Ai 11). Stefan Kac and I are both on the faculty at the West Bank School of Music (me for decades; him since 2005). I first heard him play at a benefit for the School that year where he tore through an a cappella realization of Thelonious Monks ⿿Bye-Ya⿝. (This event provided him the first exposure to my playing as well; on that evening a short piano solo.) Within a short time we began working together in a variety of contexts. MORE WISTFUL TUNES FOR THE SINCERE marks our first collaborative documentation." - Milo Fine, Shih Shih Wu Ai. Recorded August 7, 2009 and September 14, 2009.

"This CD could be seen as an indirect result of a phone call Milo Fine received from Davu Seru in 2000. Relatively new to improvised music, Davu was casting about for information and possible collaborative possibilities. Discussions, hearing one anothers music and, ultimately, concerts ensued, the latter often involving Davus main partner Andrew Lafkas, among others. Milo also invited each of them to join the Ensemble at as part of the bimonthly concert series at the West Bank School of Music. As the School has neither the space to allow for a quartet with this instrumentation, nor, for that matter, a decent piano, this CD was recorded at Milos home in late 2003." - Shih Shih Wu Ai.

"As a teenager Kommissar Hjuler began to look out for strange music. At Unterm Durchschnitt in Hamburg he found several records with electronic and industrial music. He then began to contact musicians like Steven Stapleton, Lt. Caramel, Merzbow or Due Process in order to get handsigned copies for his collection. At the age of 18 he was invited by Karlheinz Stockhausen for a concert of Hymnen. Kommissar Hjuler became a collector of any kinds of strange music with lots of contacts to the musicians, but he did not make any music at that time. He has a very creative mind. So whenever he recorded some tapes from items of his collection for some friend, he styled the tape covers as if they were little art objects. One of the musicians he had contacted was Jan Iwers (No One/No Records), who felt in love with the little tape covers he saw and asked for a styling of his next release. So Kommissar Hjuler - 31 years old at that time - created some covers for a tape edition by Jan Iwers, then began to make some recordings together with him. They called their project TUULEN LAULU and made a double LP and some tapes, but he soon realized that he was not able to work in a band, his plans for music were too bizarre, so he started recording his own music �?? mostly with simple arrangements by using a mono cassette recorder. His music might be called fluxus, for one will hardly find a name for it, some recordings are even more text sound collages or cut-up readings, some are simply bizarre music. Soon after his first release by Tuulen Laulu he met his wife Mama Bär, she was only 17 years old. It was love at first sight. She did not know anything about strange music or arts, but soon showed a talent by nature for painting very abstract pictures (mostly acryl and wax) and creating songs in her very own vein. Both worked together as Kommissar Hjuler und Frau, whereas these recordings were dominated by Kommissar Hjuler. So she prefered to make her Mama Bär recordings without any others help. They married, got their son Cy, built a house with a complete tone studio and gallery for her paintings and few collages by Kommissar Hjuler, both now work as artists and have released quite a lot of very limited releases on handcut vinyl, as CD-Rs or tapes. Covers were mostly created by Kommissar Hjuler. Kommissar Hjuler joined the police, at the age of 16, then took evening classes and afterwards studied to become an police officer. He now works at 1. Police Department Flensburg. Mama Bär does no longer work in her job as chemical assistant, she now only works as an artist running a tiny gallery and mother. Most of their spare time Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Bär use for any weird sound creations, paintings or sculptures. Not all ideas become realization, of course, otherwise their output would have been incredible, and in a way it is by now. But their world is dominated by art and who ever met them was astonished about their strange personalities, both can be regarded as one abstract organism of creative art in two persons belonging together." - Asylum Lunaticum.

"Its flashback time at Shock. Everybody loves the 80s now innit, and everybody positively adores old tapes of bedroom noodling... So, always keen to exploit the latest trends, Shock has rummaged through the archives to come up with Eaten Away by Shadows, over 79 minutes (value for money!) of SJ archive stuff recorded between 82-83, before editing Shock Xpress, playing in Whitehouse, Skullflower, etc. This was recorded mostly in Bristol, some in London while living in a squat up the road from M. Bower. (Mr. P. Best was crashing on my floor around then. Hilarious times were had by all.) It moves from guitar rock to metal-banging, drone, and industrial, and ends with some major guitar deconstruction and a positively uplifting organ/feedback orgy. Most of it doesnt sound too obviously like anyone else, so as far as influences go, the dedicated can ponder what Id been listening to (other than the Satanic voices in my head) at any given point. Suggestions on a postcard, please. Many cheap instruments were abused in making this music. Guitars and mics were dropped, hit, beaten with pieces of metal and occasionally with an axe, and pretty much all of it (including a good old Dr. Rhythm) went through some sort of distortion and a dysfunctional tape echo unit. Various glitches and tape oddities may be discerned at various points, all part of the musics many charms. Tracks are ordered as they appear on the cassettes, the titles (some a tad uninspired or stemming from idiotic private jokes, sorry) are off the inlays. One piece was previously heard on a Fusetron 7", another appeared as the Hydra track on the Melt/Dissolve compilation, and one was chopped up and used on Band Of Pains Reculver CD. All are presented here in vastly superior sound quality. The albums mastered by Andrew Liles, so it sounds amazingly good (given the limitations of the source material), and we dont want to hear any moaning about the fact its in a jewel case, not a repulsive digipak!

This is a 30-minute introduction to the new world of Shock, a jarring departure observing lessons in repetition from Brion Gysins calligraphic paintings to Cabaret Voltaires Three Mantras to 90s minimal techno, and with an incredible cut by Noel Summerville that picks up every detail of the mostly analog synth manipulations." -FE.

Title: Den-en Ni Shisu OST
Format: CD
Label: Showboat/Sky Station
Country: Japan
Price: $29.00
"First reissue of this 1974 J.A. Ceasar-performed theatrical underground classic. "The early 70s in Japan are often painted as an era of political and artistic disillusionment. On the one hand, the state rode roughshod over widespread opposition by renewing a mutual security treaty with the US, forcibly purchasing farming land near Tokyo for the construction of a new airport and stamping down hard on student occupations of universities. In the face of the implacability of state power, the protest movements fluffy dreams of peaceful revolution were viciously scalpel-sculpted into new and violent forms by Red Army hijackings, lynchings and hostage taking. The sense of confusion and lost innocence was further emphasized by teenage thrill killers, coin locker babies and the bizarre coup detat-cum-public suicide of novelist Yukio Mishima. Against this background Japanese youth music began to discard the perky Western imitations of the Group Sounds boom and the college folkies, and slide into more appropriately brutal forms of self expression. Folk turned angry and personal, while rock groups like Las Rallizes Denudes, Flower Travellin Band and Keiji Hainos Lost Aaraaff discovered bad acid, dissonance and heavy electric blues. Some of the most exciting and evocative music of the time, however, was born out of the avant garde theatre groups that had played such a central role in the 60s ferment. One of the most important was the Tenjo Sajiki Company (its name taken from Marcel Carnes wartime occupation fantasy Les Enfants Du Paradis), formed by poet, film maker, boxing fan and all-around agent provocateur, Shuji Terayama. Renowned for Living Theatre-inspired audience participation happenings and extreme street theatre designed to shock the bourgeois, by 1970 the group had already become a haven for runaway teens, and a focus for police investigation. Terayama was canny enough to realize that co-opting their music was an ideal way to hijack adolescent energies, and he consistently used heavy amplified rock to jump-start his chaotic, socially critical acid operas. Heard today, even independent of their lyrical message, theyre astonishingly powerful as pieces of music, deploying huge Magma choruses alongside juggernaut organ, guitar, bass, drums and fully out-there vocalizing. The pick of this bunch is the soundtrack to Terayawas 1974 film Den-en Ni Shisu (Death In The Country). Described as a fictional autobiography, it tells of a sensitive adolescent poet who later becomes a film director, stuck with his neurotic mother in a rural northern backwater, who dreams of running off first with a neighbours wife and then with a traveling freakshow. The films fractured narrative of awakening sexuality and severing of parental bonds is captured in hallucinatory imagery and an equally ambitious soundtrack by J.A. Caesar, which binds the whole film together with a subtle, subconscious logic. The deployment of disparate elements in an all-consuming flow, which works even independently of the images, is masterly. The familiar psych guitar, organ and choral chanting are heavy enough in places -- as on the discs definitive reading of Caesars massive and haunting Wasan -- to approach Sabbath levels of dense pounding, and theres also a frighteningly visceral vocal turn from folk singer Kan Mikami. But the score also sees Caesar expanding his instrumental palette, scoring some tracks for sideshow brass band or gently plucked guitar, weeping violin and chant. The weird intervals of his sparse, medieval-influenced melodies linger in the memory with the force of nostalgia for a past not directly experienced. Its an amazing performance: from street hippy whod never picked up an instrument to film soundtrack composer in five years. Caesars soundtrack for Den-en Ni Shisu lost out by a single vote to Toru Takemitsu for the best film soundtrack of 1974." -- Alan Cummings, The Wire.

Artist: KIYOKO, ITOH
Title: Woman At 23 Hour - Love In
Format: CD
Label: Showboat/Sky Station
Country: Japan
Price: $28.00
"Identical and deluxe reissue of this deliriously mega-rare and hardly known Itoh Kiyoko record. Normally if you want to score a copy of the original vinyl you are required to donate most of your vital organs to some yakuza-typed black marketer, but luckily enough, this one here is easier to attain without ripping out a lung or a liver to pound off. The CD is housed in an eye-popping foldout jacket. It was the final album Itoh recorded in 1971 and on this effort she got backed up by again a bunch of Tokyo underground heavy weights such as J.A. Seazer and Kuni Kawauchi of the Happenings Four. On this album, Itohs talent is fully flowering and apart from merely eargasmatic songs, she hushes into being, atmospheric city-life field recordings and well-balanced sound snippets find their way in and between her compositions. These flashes of cosmopolitan Tokyo city life grandeur and the feeling of desperate desolation it tails along elevate her impeccable melancholic love ballads and softly erotic excursions to even higher levels of artistic expression, catapulting the whole affair towards eerie, stratospheric, heavenly, delightful realms. Sadly enough, both of her albums failed to catch on, not poppy enough, too melancholic, way too creative, artistically too advanced, hard to categorize and probably even too erotically sophisticated without degrading herself to mere carnal sonic one-hit wonders. In one word, a delicate, soft, psychedelic wonderland avenue of an album that will entrap simple airhead listeners into a deadlock without giving them the chance to fully explore the absinthial pleasures it conceals. If one only cares to listen to what lies underneath its surface layer, a new form of aural addiction will commence to besiege you. One of the greatest underrated delicate psychedelic female vocal albums to seep out of Japan. Original copies just never surface and if they do, you have to trade in -- in most cases -- a limb in order to take one home with you. So this eye-popping delicately crafted reissue might be just the thing you need. If you got entangled into Kaji Meikos sonic universe, you should try Itoh Kiyoko. All-time highest recommendation and forget about original vinyl copies, they are even scarcer that all your Blues Creation, Too Much and Oz Days records together. Highest recommendation." -Showboat/Sky Station

Artist: MASATO, MINAMI
Title: The Tropics
Format: CD
Label: Showboat/Sky Station
Country: Japan
Price: $28.00
"2nd CD reissue from Showboat of this classic Japanese underground folk-rock album, originally released by RCA Japan in 1971. Great mini-LP gatefold packaging, but very few made and not long for this world. "The Tropics was Minami Masatos first record on which he got assisted by Mizutani Takeshi of the Rallizes Denudes, his only appearance on record ever. Minami Masato was one of Japans first beatnik hippie scum singers, who before venturing into the music world, spent some time in Mexico where he indulged himself in the narcotic goodies the country had to offer, went to America and witnessed in 1964 the rise of the beatnik movement and saw one of Bob Dylans early performances. Minamis life would never be the same again. He crossed the Atlantic Ocean, criss-crossed through Europe and returned to Tokyo in 1966. He participated at the 1968 Kyoto Folk Jamboree Festival. However, his debut single did not appear until October 1969, followed by a second single in 1970. This album, his debut appeared in July 1971 for which he got assisted by a loose collective of fan musicians and befriended artists. Hadaka no Rallizes Mizutani Takeshi was such a fan collaborator since he was quite in awe for what Minami stood for, being the unattached beatnik and drugged singer-songwriter he was. He let loose some ear shattering electric guitar on the albums closing track. This is the sole recorded output of Mizutani on disc. At least officially, if one ignores the dozen bootlegs and unofficially released music of his (like the Arthur Doyle-Mizutani 2LP set that was released without his consent). An unbelievably valuable document of the early Japanese underground. Hyper-rare and demented all the way. For lovers of Hadaka no Rallizes, Tomokawa Kazuki, acid folk, Jandek, and obscure and psyched-out sounds." -Showboat/Sky Station

Title: Yuyake No Kioku Kara - Aomori Live
Format: CD
Label: Showboat/Sky Station
Country: Japan
Price: $29.00
"Originally released in 1976 on the legendary Victor SF series documenting outsider folk activities in Japan, this is one of the hardest Mikami LPs to track down, apart from his first two albums. This record sees Mikami returning to his home base, the northern prefecture of the bone-chillingly cold and weather beaten Aomori, delivering an intimate performance where he accompanies himself just on guitar with no back-up. A stunning and blood curdling live performance that proves once again that he is the ultimate acid folk/rural beatnik guttural hero. He wails out elegiac songs with enough conviction to strip the paint of the walls. But at the same time it is possibly -- partly due to his return to the motherland after having spent so much time in the concrete jungle of the capital -- his most private statement to date, loaded with cries of sorrow and grief, introspective mind trips and venomous laments that suggests he cries his heart out for dead souls and lost memories. In other words, his performance squeezes the last whiff of air out of your longs, leaving you exhausted and emotionally distressed. Great, only superlatives do him justice, all time possible highest recommendation. By the way, the audience response in the small theater is great and provides at times the ideal backup for his songs. You have to hear it in order to believe it... again quality reissue job, complete with mini-LP style gatefold jacket, obi, etc, all the works... it makes you drool just to hold it in yer hands."-Showboat/Sky Station

Price: $29.00
"Another rarity is this original soundtrack album to Terayama Shujis last movie with music by JA Seazer (Tenjo Sajiki, JA Caesar). Released in 1984, it was Terayamas last completed movie and Seazers last contribution to his visionary and reactionary world. Saraba Habobunes soundtrack is just stunningly beautiful, far removed from Seazers trademark bombastic scores. Instead it ventures into more pastoral and almost meditative psychedelic realms filled with traditional string plucking, eerie flute, shahuhachi flirtations, esoterically floating beneath-the-surface female Orff-like choruses and ethereal shamanistic sense of poetry that create memory flashes towards a forceful nostalgia of a past not directly experienced. The whole is endowed with beauty and an austere intimacy spiced up with occasional echoes of circus side show callers that seem to recall aspirational surges out of a concealed depth of former delinquent activities. A deceptively intense, casual in feel, yet meticulous in its musical detail and lyrical transmigrative eclectic beauty. A true astonishingly beautiful and ear-filling piece of consummate art that is so hard to come to terms with. Housed in eye-popping hard cover mini-LP styled gatefold sleeve art, complete with reproduction of the original inserts."-Showboat/Sky Station

He is undoubtedly the unequaled master of possessed song-spirit. Here the young Tomokawa wails and screams emotionally hard enough in order to strip the paint of the walls. Nevertheless at times he gets quite emotional and laid back in order to hush his haunting demons to sleep. Just a splendid piece of Japanese acid folk and chant exorcism. Tomokawas music is violent, emotionally charged with insane screaming modes, piercing sensitivity, cathartic rhythmic purge, thrashing acoustic guitar aesthetic and harsh, reflecting the atmosphere of the bleak northern prefecture of Aomori. Hardly turns up these days. Stunningly great psychedelic-acid-avant-outsider folk music. For fans of Mikami Kan, Jandek, acid folk, Iuchi Kengo, J.A.Seazer, psych heads all around and adventurous music geeks. If you are interested in acid folk, well look no further cause it will not get any better than this.

This split between WOODS and AMPS FOR CHRIST began as an idea for a 7-inch single, but grew into a full-length LP featuring four songs by each artist and an additional collaborative track. While Woods and Amps for Christ explore a lot of the same land mass, each turns over different rocks and shards of glass. And even though the two work independently from one another, listeners will hear the sublime manner in which the LPs two sides (or the harsh, tinny digital skree of the MP3s for you 20th century types, dig your irony) complement one another both musically and lyrically.

"For over 25 years, northwest native Daniel Menche has been involved with innovative methods of composition and sound experimentation. His formative work being rooted in noise has since developed into highly idiosyncratic and sophisticated forms, while remaining integrated with the genres emotionally visceral core. Vilké is another step forward in this ongoing evolution, and a formidable experience for the listener. Animality is a recurrent theme in Menches work, displayed prominently within four long form compositions that comprise the album. An avid and voracious hiker, Menche found great inspiration in the beautiful lament of howling wolves during his overnight expeditions; and ultimately chose these sounds as the core sonic elements for Vilké. By layering and distending wolves voices, a choir of howls was constructed -- a massive sound wall colliding with layers of poly-rhythmic drums, abstracted guitar, and piano. Fluctuating from somber ambiance to a seemingly endless cascade of noise, the songs lure the listener into a darkened forest of howling serenades, propulsive rhythms, deconstructed instrumentation, and mother natures primal cacophony." - Sige.

Title: Vuonna 86
Format: LP
Label: Signing Knives
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
"Pekko Kappi is a player of Jouhikko, the ancient Finnish-Karelian bowed lyre, in all-improvised settings and traditional folk songs.NB: Dont be fooled, this is a full-on, fucked-up, inspired, deeply innovative record with its teeth firmly in noise, sound-sculpture, improvisation and great song writing. The most obvious comparison would be Ghédalia Tazartès, as Kappi fuses a vast array of recording techniques with a love of the traditional, in full awareness of the avant garde. He remains, however, separate from pigeon-holing. I have used numerous comparatives through this review to depict the incredibly varied sounds of Vuonna 86. The LP is comprised of 10 short pieces playing in atypical pop division. Kappis voice is gravelled and strained, singing deep from the throat. He whistles and growls increasing the breadth of his vocal pallet. The undulating rhythms of his music depict a turbulent landscape, as if fried through the brain of the artist. The fuzz and distortion of the recording adds an unusual harshness that one would expect from lo-fi tape filth artists (Nevari Butchers, The Haters). All is composed with a control that juxtaposes some of the improvised nature of the original recordings. It lends a sculpted feel I find both inspiring and successful. The Jouhikko is allowed room to lead by the forth movement. This is a beautiful little piece of seemingly traditional folk. It maintains the coarseness of previous recordings without veering to readily into the red. Its unbridled honesty and simplicity is quite overwhelming. The use of the Jews Harp kickstarts a mad journey into a splattered landscape akin to the visions of Ralph Steadman. Its Gonzo lunacy sings with guttural vocals that bring to mind Tom Waits circus madmen. Further bizarre jigs bound with distortion and devilish decay. The short snaps of traditional, versus dirty analogue filth bears comparison to the recent output of Harappian Night Recordings. Mad cocks crow to reveal a pounding agitated punk (Harry Pussy/Rusted Shut) type riff that absolutely knocks you for six. Its alien vocals land as if plucked from a European 80s bedroom Goth band. It makes you wish for a collection of killer 2 minute tracks to dance around to (preferably on your own, or with selected semi-naked friends). All burns away into field recordings that creep into view with an unleashed audacity. Noise splurge and free improv blast in a microcosmic vomit, then things take a deeper journey of heavy repetition that induces hypnotic trances. Wavering tones move the mind in subtle shifts beneath the din. Finally things placate with a truly moving sprawl across arid landscapes and darkened skies, forever bereft of a long absent northern sun. The kin left to ponder the forgotten landscape that fades in recent legend. Desperate attempts to tune an old radio fail to inspire hope. The demons that stole the light taunt from afar, safe beyond the airwaves. Hope and prayer persist and we enthuse at the trials of this loner, this madman against the soil. Eventually all is consumed by the dark, the radio waves become malicious fingers that strangle sound to pitch nothing. This is a great piece of work that is almost there, but simmers beyond complete digestion. It is utterly intriguing, brave and well worth falling into." -Foxy Digitalis

Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"1995 reissue of this Silence album, originally issued in 1972. Älgarnas Trädgårds name translates as "Garden of the Elks" and this debut album has always stood as one of the pinnacles of underground psychedelic rock -- comparable to early Pink Floyd, Group 1850 and other world masters of space-out genius. The title translates as The Future is a Hovering Ship Anchored in the Past. The group employed an instrumental array made of: violins, rebec, cello, guitars, sitar, piano, zither, organ flutes, zinks, jews harps, tablas, percussion, Moog-synthesizer & VC-3 Putney-synthesizer. Recorded at Studio Decibel in 1971, this CD reissue adds two bonus live tracks from 1972. From Dan Söderqvists notes: "We have known each other since 1968, when we met in our home neighborhood Västra Frölunda, Gothenburg. We listened to everything; Perotinus heavenly choirs from the 13th century, Messiens heavy works for orchestra, Beefhearts Safe as Milk, with its surreal lyrics, King Crimsons endless string of chords, the beautiful acoustic Third Ear Band, Terry Rileys minimalism and above all the psychedelic music of early Pink Floyd. Sometimes we played our dägga-däng-music, crazy rhythmical plays with acoustic guitars and hysterical giggles. Sometimes we just sat and listened to the sounds slowly disappearing into space ... We experimented with getting strange sounds out of our instruments, started to use amplifiers and played with echoes ... We constantly expanded our possibilities to get new sounds, with organs, mouth harps and pedals ... We got our hands on the first Moog module system that just about had reached Sweden. We mixed Middle Age instruments such as zinks and rebecs, sound effects, church bells, fragments of both Bach and The Beatles and improvised our way through the first album." -Silence

The music is moody underground folk with Eastern influences. The album sold very poorly and is a serious collectors item today. The original band members were: Marcus Brandelius aka Greg Fitzpatrick (esraj and vocals), Guy Öhrström (acoustic guitar), Stig Arne Karlsson (sitar), and Theo Greyerz (tablas). After over three years of preparation, Handgjort is reissued, released as a coproduction from Silence and Psykofon records. This is an exclusive replica, with hand-painted covers by the band members once again! The original album was remastered from the master tapes without digitalization. The previously-unreleased bonus tracks were all recorded live at the festivals at Gärdet in 1970 and 1971. Strictly limited edition of 600 copies done with the full cooperation of the band. CD includes a 32-page booklet telling the complete, uncensored story of Handgjort, featuring unique photos and lots of reproductions of original Handgjort hand-painted covers.

"2013 repress. Reissue of what was the first ever release on Silence, initially issued in 1970. This was also the first Bo Hansson album, the Swedish legend known to be one of the earliest to place "space music". Produced as a tribute to the Tolkien trilogy, this is stunning instrumental psychedelic music, with plush atmospherics -- Dont Fear The Hobbit! This version is the original Swedish titled version, with one bonus track ("Tidiga skisser Från Midgård"); there is also an English-titled version with different bonus tracks. This is a digitally remastered issue from 2001. Performed by: Bo Hansson (Organs, guitar, moog, bass), Rune Carlsson (drums, congas), Gunnar Bergsten (saxophone), Sten Bergman (flute). "Lord of the Rings was released late in the fall of 1970 and became an immediate success. Bo himself was in the midst of a very creative period, new melodies were constantly popping up in his head, so when Lord of the Rings finally got released in other countries there were already three more tracks added compared to the first Swedish issue. In the encyclopedia Guide to Progressive Rock, Bo Hansson is mentioned with reverence and respect. He is the first to play space music, he is a precursor to the French prog-celebrities Gong and English Henry Cow, and contemporary style-formers as Genesis and Yes. Bo Hansson is an innovator in the most noble sense of the word."" -Silence.

Title: Sov Gott Rose-Marie
Format: CD
Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"CD reissue of this all-time Swedish underground classic, originally issued on the Scandinavian Love label in 1968. International Harvester were the second incarnation of Bo Anders Perssons group, after Parson Sound (whose early sound experimentation was finally documented in 2001 by Subliminal Sounds). Early in the 60s Bo Anders Persson had envisioned a new kind of communicative music -- would it be possible to create a more contemporary kind of rhythmic music that could play the same role as traditional folk music, a music that was both sensual and transcendent? In 1967 came the answer. The hypnotic feelings of Terry Rileys eternity music + the rough-riffing of The Rolling Stones = a new alchemical wedding. Pärson Sound was formed, which started to perform publicly in the summer of 1967. The next year they changed the name into International Harvester, taken from the American company manufacturing agricultural machines, trucks and ambulances. The astonishing thing about their two official recordings is the complete freedom of the music, inspired by a Terry Riley-esque repetitive song structure. The atmospheres of these songs are both utopian and dystopian, mixed with an early environmental awareness. Sov Gott Rose-Marie starts with the strongest of statements: the Latin death hymn "Dies Irae," played like it was a medieval heavy rock-theme. This was music of turmoil and inner upheaval, mostly played in the slowest of rhythms, but still with a sense of constant change. Theres constant juxtapositions going on between documentary sounds and floating states of mind; hard rocking tunes, demonstrations against the war in Vietnam, bird song, sounds from police radio, psychedelic tranquility, lullabies." -Silence

References abound from Cream, Mountain, November and even Jimi Hendrix in a perfect amalgam of British hard rock and psychedelia from the American west coast enhanced by cryptic Swedish lyrics. There is something unmistakably Swedish in Kenny Håkanssons way of handling his guitar -- something unspecified, a tone, a Nordic mood. Kebnekajse did not play electric blues, or have its roots in Afro-American music but was rather torn up and then replanted into the Swedish soil --just to see if it could grow and flourish. Their name is taken from Kebnekaise, the highest mountain in Sweden." -Silence.

The group is two Swedish males, who apparently have never been positively identified. The music they perform is in the realms of experimental folk-rock, with the opening track "In Kommer Gösta" featuring a devastating Godz-like brilliance (easily one of the memorable tracks in the entire Silence catalog). Shakers, wobbly effects, lethargic acoustic guitars, bedroom percussion and one of the most idiosyncratic band names ever -- for shambling stoner nonsense, this is Swedens finest entry into the field by far." - FE.

This group falls well into the "progressive weirdness" category that Gong, Area, and Pell Mell were part of. While some of the many short tracks have a considerable amount of "noise" (screechy vocals, strange sounds), the band has, not unlike Gong, a killer musicianship that makes Måltid a listenable (and enjoyable) offering.

Formed in the late late 60s in Uppsala, SMM canvassed the festival circuit (appearing on the same bill that Träd Gräs och Stenar recorded their mammoth Live Gardet 1970 album) to popular and critical appeal. Later SMM would team up with groups like Henry Cow and such to affix a politically-bent moniker to their particularly labyrinthine chord progressions. Here we get a few prog-polkas for the kids, a bit of tasteful Rhodes bob, a few Swedish-folk sounding numbers, a fast carnival segue or two, near Deep Purplesque organ snaking, etc...

"We want to thank the patient horses who were our closest neighbours when we recorded in Jacobs joiners workshop on the island Färingsö. Its true that they sometimes pawed the wall -- in appreciation or annoyance? When they were out in their pasture we had to shut off the electric fence. The impulses came into the tape, it sounded like a metronome with co-operative problems. A few tunes are recorded in a room in ÿllösa old school outside Stjärnhov, in Torbjörns sister Bissas home. All the instrumentals were created at the very moment, the result of an accidental alchemist occurrence -- a meeting of four old men at the crossroads of an imaginary landscape. Ain Schvajn Draj! is what ran out of the test tubes after Thomas Meras experiments with cloning TGS. The doa-choir The Nymphettes is his own highly temporary change of gender.

"ABOVE GROUND was a fleeting yet no less important piece in the awesome DIY Christchurch scene of the early 80s. Together only for a short period in 1983, the band was comprised of BILL DIREEN (VACUUM / BILDERS), CAROL DIREEN, MARYROSE CROOK (MAX BLOCK / RENDERERS) and STUART PAGE (AXEMEN). They combined a ubiquitous and detached Velvet Underground vibe and a smattering of early Modern Lovers keyboard angst with some kind of Sky Saxon / Seeds psychedelic mojo. Above Ground was a formidable outfit in their brief existence and deserve more than a mere footnote in the history of one of the most vibrant scenes to exist in the past 30 years. Gone Aiwa originally saw life as a limited-edition cassette made to order and sold to various shops and at the occasional gig.

"Much ado - okay, a moderate, respectable amount of ado - was made about Ashtabulas debut LP River of Many Dead Fish. A mere side project for Bob Malloy, according to the conventional wisdom, it allowed the remaining members of the Strapping Fieldhands to restock their dwindling supply of owl tonic and to gas up the skiffle barge in the port of limbo. There may well be a kernel of truth in that posit, but now we have a second Ashtabula release, and there hasnt been a collection of new Fieldhands recordings since�? well, the last one. They say owl tonic isnt so easy to get nowadays, and a barge aint exactly a canoe, either. Correct us if were wrong, but we believe it was the legendary 60s imagemaker Jake Witsen who said, "Give me intestinal fortitude over verisimilitude any day, cause I want a band with blood and guts, not a group of bleepin nuts." Good on yer, Jake ol boy, you said a mouthful there. But the Witsenian guts on Possible Smokestacks might better be spelled p-l-u-c-k. Lots of pluck. As with outfits within the Elephant 6 collective, theres a ubiquity about it as well (Brobdignagian in this case, as opposed to E6s Lilliputian, lets set the record straight). Smokestacks takes in everything from the glimmer of 60s psychedelic Britpop (a la the UK Kaleidoscope) to a bizarro-world cross between Remake/Remodel-era Roxy Music and Dub Housing-era Pere Ubu, to the Edgar Broughton Band and Hawkwind (setting ears on fire in a tent on the Glastonbury plains). An appearance by a German chanteuse on one track sways somewhere between Nico and Lotte Lenya (but for gods sake, dont go blabbing to Boyd Rice). This album is, as they are wont to say in Magnet, "all over the place." It might make you cry, it might make you sweat, but itll definitely make you moist. And in these frigid times, kingpin, isnt leaving ones glands to the mercy of people like Bob Malloy what its all about?"

"The second entry in Siltbreezes AXEMEN reissue series, Scary! Part III originally saw light as a cassette-only release in 1989. Most bands and fans active in the Christchurch and Dunedin scenes at this time could tell you, sans embellishment, how the prolific Axemen blazed through the 80s (new cassettes seeming to come into existence on an almost daily basis), and, in classic Rashomon style, a different story would be told by all willing to reminisce, though its safe to say everyone would agree that Scary!s beguiling je ne sais quoi is some of the bands most intriguing blat to date. Unlike the hyper-punk-charged pastiche of Big Cheap Motel, Scary! operates from a gestalt concept and sensibility. While on the surface the contents might sound fragmented, ruminative, or obfuscatory, dig deeper (or listen better) and youll see (and hear) the mystifying ooze lactating out of the four sides of Scary! not as individual, insurmountable constructs of bizarreness, but as a coherent pattern of brilliant phenomena that is-in a word-scary! Novice ears that have made it though this Bunyanesque giant find themselves making comparisons to a mixture of S.Y.P.H., Royal Trux, and Ptose. All one can say, really, to such hodgepodge is "congratulations." After 20 years and counting, this release refuses to be aptly pigeonholed. Hell, even a seasoned horror chomper such as Shirley Jackson (were she still croaking) would advise giving these guys a wide berth. They mean business and their business is mean.

The opening track "Good Morning" is practically a sideways step into boogie rock (horn accompaniment provided by none other than JESSE TRBOVICH and KURT VILE); with the proper seismic shift, it could almost be heard as an alternate reality take on "Re-make/Re-model." Its easily the bands longest stomp in the forest of rock since their debut cassette, and, man, them boots leave a bruise! The remaining three tracks morph and ebb harmoniously-in true Blues Control fashion-the timbre occasionally elegiac, yet more often riffing on a plane that has yet to be transcribed." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: BRENT LEWIIS ENSEMBLE
Title: Three Christs Of Ypsilanti
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"As part of the 25th anniversary of the Butte County Free Music Society, Three Christs of Ypsilanti follows Induced Musical Spasticity 4xLP (BUFMS, 2009) and roughly coincides with The Brent Lewiis Ensembles At the North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 (upcoming on What The...?) and, if the master tapes rescue succeeds, the soundtrack to Esthers Brother Is Missing by Maria Estevez. Recording and performing primarily in the mid- to late 1980s, with sporadic efforts in the early 1990s, this barely organized enclave based in rural Northern California ingests and disgorges outsider free music a la Smegma and other bent LAFMS trippers, the UKs A Band, 5 Starcle Men, and the sort of visionaries currently promoted by labels such as Chocolate Monk, Destijl, and Ultra Eczema. Members of the Brent Lewiis Ensemble later migrated to Vomit Launch, Glands of External Secretion, The Idiot, Needles, Serious Prblmz, and Bananafish magazine. Each side of Three Christs of Ypsilanti is dominated by tracks whose lengths meander into double digits. On Side A, "Take It Out and Kill It" is a murky glance at mortification via caninicide, with its ancillary fleas, cockroaches, and especially worms. This is the only large group recording on the album, and as such whirls around in conflicting directions in a manner that one backwater critic long ago described as "schizophrenic muzak." A completely different version of this track was previously released on the Maggie Is a Dot cassette in 1984. On Side B, "Dark Surprise," a 1986 recording from the crossroads of DIY autism and darkened psychedelia, is previously unreleased (the first playback of the master tape didnt happen until 2008). In contrast to the groups usual embrace of any and all kitchen sinks at hand, the recording was made solely with electric guitars, voice, and prerecorded audio frottage. Book-ending both sides are shorter tracks (average length: two minutes); these four excerpts from an after-hours, no-audience guerilla action were recorded in a multistory, split-level university student union, using hurled cafeteria cutlery, defective boomboxes and answering machines blaring prerecorded tape, the public piano, and a variety of unidentified flailing objects. All were previously released on the Mary Jane cassette in 1983." - Siltbreeze.

"The C&B is short for Cat & Bells Club, a brief precursor that would soon be transformed into the estimable poetics of The Shadow Ring. Studious fans of the bands releases may recognize this name from the whimsical word search found on the back cover of their 1995 7, Some Of Us. Ah, finally; mystery solved & now all the ducks are on the pond. While early Shadow Ring managed to fuse equal parts Tyrannosaurus Rex mystical recitations w/Throbbing Gristle aural idolatry, The C&B seem divinely born out of the sputtering taps of brown ale that flowed freely down the gullets of various 1st generation DIY shufflers, most notably, 49 Americans or Door And The Window. And while this is just dumb luck, theres no denying a genus, unintentional as it may be. The templates for the ruminative, droll & original wordsmithing not to mention the threadbare musical accompaniment that would soon become the hallmark for The Shadow Ring sound are now available for the 1st time ever in a 300 press 7", 4 track ep.

Combining tempered aggro, churning rhythms and dead-on percussive splat, their rookie effort shows a band on the cusp of break out. And on Heavy Breathing, Constant Mongrel pulverizes the door into dust, so parents take heed: lock up your sons n daughters! Beginning with the jarringly great "Complete," this post-punk art damage spares no one, not even themselves. With eight tracks that smolder, crackle and snap, Heavy Breathing is yet another plumed feather in Constant Mongrels cap, sitting them-in terms of magnitude and diversity-alongside fellow Aussie gristle slingers such as X, Babeez and Seems Twice. Heavy Breathing is sure to be another top corker for 2013. And beyond. Edition of 500 copies. Includes digital download coupon." -Siltbreeze.

"Originally seeing the light of day in April of 1992, Harsh 70s Reality was not just a high water mark for that year, but for the ages. Technically this was the bands fourth long-play outing, and as a double-album, it followed (and was ever so slightly informed by) two formidable juggernauts that preceeded it: Twin Infinitives and Lake. But it was Harsh 70s Reality that left the decade stronger and more resonant than it came in. People say that rock music died with the passing of Kurt Cobain. But THE DEAD C slaughtered it in its sleep with this tremendous set of grinding thud. It is in every sense the ultimate post-rock album. To hear it is to understand why one scribe back in the day referred to their sound as "a garbage truck backing over the abyss." A legendary release from a legendary band on a legendary label. 20th anniversary edition of 1,000, this time with proper gatefold sleeve. Restored to the full length of the original vinyl release (no omitted tracks as on the CD). Fully remastered for optimal volume levels on all tracks-no editing, compression, equalization or normalization; just removal of random, transient, high-level clicks.

"DER TPK is the charming acronym for DER TEENAGE PANZER KORPS, and anyone who cant appreciate the imagery of a pipsqueak quartet of fuzzy, distorted youth, drenched in DIY testosterone, rumbling out from sewers and into the street, just hasnt been vibing on the correct History Channel. Based outta parts unknown (Germany? California? Is there a difference?), Der TPK gnash and gnarl through the charred landscape of the underground like a small battalion of Tiger tanks blasting across the steppes of the Ukraine. Their sonic attack at times recalls the anxious throb of Mars in their prime, but suddenly it shifts and you could swear you were locked in battle with-uh, listening to, that is-the early discordant rumble of Savage Republic. These four youths-BUNKER WOLF, CATHOLIC PAT, BOY TRUE and EDMUND XAVIER-understand they are channeling a vortex of sound, circa 79-81. Thats where they wanna be. The walls shake, the floor crawls. Hey, whatta place! And really, how could comparisons to Mars and Savage Republic ever be a bad thing? Has Siltbreeze ever lied to you? Limited, one-time-only vinyl edition.

Hailing from Cambridge, England, The Doozer bears an almost uncanny vocal resonance to past legend Syd Barrett, as well as a knack for cobbling together occasional found-tape narration with string-strum and hypnotic percussive plonk not unlike The Shadow Ring.

"From 1994, a small stash of these long out-of-print LPs turned up during a recent renovation & its easily the strangest release in the Siltbreeze catalog. Hard Black Thing was a Columbus, Ohio, quartet featuring Sam Esh (former Woodruff Ave. block captain, now mayor of a small unnamed hamlet near Savannah, Georgia), Mike Rep (Quotas, True Believers, etc.) Stu Sinn & Roger Time (both from the Harry Patt Band). Soundwise, HBTs side is a stumbling, white-knuckled barrel ride through myriad soundscapes as diverse as Amon Düül, Kalacakra, Portsmouth Sinfonia, Steve Marcus & Door & The Window, sometimes all at once! Side 2 begins w/ excerpts from the unreleased Sam Esh comedy LP. The sound is not unlike one might expect if one expects to find the likes of Tubby Boots channeling Jack Mudurian at a volunteer fire department turkey raffle. The laughs are on you, friend! Then its a down n dirty steel string strum & coarse vocal hum that is capable of reducing even the most erudite Alan Lomax sycophant to nothing more than a human tear box lost in Porch Swing, USA.

On their second effort, Ex-Cocaine throw down hard, evoking a gnarled bonfire with flames that roar thunderously like the detuned, rockist clang of Dead Cs Harsh 70s Reality, and burns evenly like the smelted, Rust Belt psychedelia of Stone Harbours Emerges.

Imagine a record collection consisting solely of The Residents Fingerprince, Chromes Alien Soundtracks, and Cabaret Voltaires Nag Nag Nag. A blast from any of these records could clear a house back in the old days; now they fill it. Fortunately The Factums dont operate on such a binary plane. They are capable of resorting to either option, depending on the time and place.

"While our erstwhile maestro is likely to point out personal involvement in Miamis BROKEN TALENT or TRASH MONKEYS as the apex of his twisted musical endeavors, the fact remains that MARK FEEHAN is most likely best remembered as the "other" cold-blooded string-mangler that shredded synapses through the Siltbreeze era of HARRY PUSSY two decades ago. While recent years have seen former bandmate Bill Orcutt reinvent the essence of gut-bucket blues, Feehan whiled away the time building an exact replica of an infamous Confederate submarine (the H.L. Hunley) and traveling the world, submerged. During that tenure nestled in Neptunes realm, he created a masterful album of his own-this very collection bearing his humble monogram. MF is a lively mix of guitar-based compositions steeped in modal harmonics that explode into miasmic, aural waves, transporting emanations of Phil Yost, Magical Power Mako, Michael Chapman and Hans Reichel into the mind stream. Swirling, spacey eddies will open like maelstroms and flood your subconscious, but do not be afraid. That much time under water changes a man. But sometimes its for the best. And MF is a case in point." - Siltbreeze. Limited edition of 350 copies.

"That ALASTAIR GALBRAITH should return to the Siltbreeze fold (responsible for his debut LP, Morse, in 1993) for his latest release seems practically tailor-made. But while Morse followed traditional avenues of rugged folk narrative tinged with psychedelic foxing, Mass is an unchartered, one-way trip through a world of ritual. Consisting of 22 tracks, this new album runs the gamut from mysterious beauty to just plain mysterious. Broken guitars, percussive loops, backwards tracking, a (homemade) glass harmonium, lullabies, bagpipe thievery and the odd bit of fighting talk are just some of the many bricks laid here, with Galbraith himself as the mortar and AMIEL BALESTER, MICHAEL KOHLER and DAVID KILGOUR providing assistance here and there.

Artist: HANK IV
Title: III
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"I dont care how many goddamn cute hobo bands there are out there right now. Not two runny shits. Theres something HANK IV knows that few other current of interest bands realize, and its a painfully simple thing: guitars were meant to sound like this, not that (pick something). Thats as plainly as it can be put. This is twin-guitar punk rock in a class of its own, driving more than dueling and hot-sauce-free. III is Hank Babys third and finest album yet and they are, in short, a band whose every move is worthy of your utmost attention. For this record (their second for Siltbreeze), Thee Hanks opted to spend zero dollars and buried themselves deep inside their very own Shill Building studio for a good, long while. Sightings became scarce. Promises of work being done were made but who really knew what was going on? To be fair, The Shill has its fair share of distractions. Imagine Platos Retreat, except like a basement in the Tenderloin. Anyway, the result of their self-imposed exile is this album bearing the aroma of fuck you coupled with a faint flutter of fuck me. Its eight songs in 25 minutes of loud, angry, intelligent, rock n roll punk and its from San Francisco. Beyond that, the rhythms actually have a rhythm-a loud, all-rock rhythm, in fact. Its shocking and practically akin to reinventing the wheel round these un-rocking parts. Great-and now the worldll probably explode. Do I gotta pick a cut to exalt? Down in the Dumps springs forth. Hopefully the punks follow suit."-Mitch Cardwell . Includes free digital download coupon and insert.

Artist: HANK IV
Title: Refuge In Genre
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"A decidedly meaner, sharper, and more pummeling affair than their critically acclaimed debut, Hank IVs second album, Refuge in Genre, sports eleven songs in 30 scorched-earth minutes. No visit to the lo-fi or "shit-gaze" Quonset huts this, Refuge in Genre was recorded in shattering hi-fidelity by Tim Green (The Fucking Champs) and mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac). The rollicking San Francisco quintet has been in the crosshairs of the Siltbreeze hunting rifle since just after the release of their debut LP, Third Person Shooter, was (Hook or Crook, 2006). Attempts to release their Dirty Poncho 7-inch were squashed (the honor went to Plastic Idol) so Siltbreeze did what any jilted paramour would: decided to get even. The sound of Hank IV is a bit too wily and scrambled to pigeonhole as any one type of honk. Forward thinkers might tag em as panic-skiffle, combining the cunning and menace of compadres such as Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments or Country Teasers, with a dual guitar attack that nods toward the Bailey / Kuepper-era Saints as much as those dudes looked at Smith / Kramer for their nascent moves. Through all this stutter and pummel, vocalist Bob McDonald (formerly of Denver hardcore icons Bum Kon) doesnt throw caution to the wind so much as atomize it. If a shattered leg cant keep this herc from heralding the apocalypse, do you think your tender widdle ears have a chance? Not likely, bub. San Francisco quintet Hank IV has no relation whatsoever to the Hank Williams clan. Their hard-charging and visceral dual-guitar rock punk has been likened to "Crime meets Viletones meets Styrenes punk" (Z-Gun Magazine) and by WFMUs DJ Terre T as "a sick combination of Volcano Suns and Blue Cheer and Chain Gang!" Third Person Shooter was called "one of 2006s top punk albums" by Maximum Rockandroll, "Best of 2006" by Terminal Boredom, #2 album of 2006 by WFMU DJ Evan Funk Davies, and the #8 album of 2006 by Terre T. The band has played twice at SXSW, including 2008 for the WFMU 50th anniversary showcase, and performed at Gonerfest IV in Memphis in 2007." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: JOHNNY NOISE
Title: The Day Is Coming
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"For the discerning pinetoppers of contemporary, post-everything aggro grit, the name JOHNNY NOISE should be synonymous with the sound of grizzled, sonic elan. One of the principal constructors of LOS LLAMARADAs estimable creepy crawl, Noises guitar howls and snarls went deep in guiding that bands portent vision of bleak, psychedelic ache. And now hes cast all his brut-moderne madrigals--drums, strings, vocals, the whole shebang--into a solo cauldron of hairy, distempered muzz for your consumption. Sounding like a lurching composite of Randy Holden, Bruce Gilbert, Steve Hall and Eric Hysteric, The Day Is Coming is the out-of-nowhere masterpiece of 2014 no one saw coming. Seriously, this is some virtual goat-killin, blood-suckin, Chupacabra-damaged, splayed-out shit! The man is back and armed to the gills. You have been hipped.

Artist: KITCHENS FLOOR
Title: Look Forward to Nothing
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Loneliness Is a Dirty Mattress, the debut LP by Australian trio KITCHENS FLOOR, made many ponderous pinetops top ten list in 2010 and with good reason. The band aptly channels an adroit cacophony that recalls the former glory of past Aussie noise / punk gnashers such as Rejex and Feedtime with such elan that one might suspect Tooheys Sheaf courses through their veins. On Look Forward to Nothing, new drummer JOE ALEXANDER (also found in the excellent combo, PER PURPOSE) gives Kitchens Floor a much more thunderous drive, with the the results sounding not unlike a cage match between (the Australian) X and The Gordons. True, the pummeling is without quarter and theres blood everywhere. But take stock, friend-its all yours! Which just goes to show that the best thing about beating your head against the wall is that its to Kitchens Floor. Look for the band Stateside late August through September, touring coast to coast and also dealing pain at Gonerfest 2011. Aloha. Includes download." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: KITO-MIZUKUMI ROUBER
Title: Midori Mushi San Connichiwa
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Plucking Kito-Miukumi Roubers lp out of an anonymous year end frying pan & into our Best Of 2009 fire seemed to confound toady taste makers & blog plonkers all around Hipster Haven. To them lists are a crucial element of.....something, & lets face it, peeps love lists. Sales are generated, no argument there. Why, Id wager that ringing endorsement of Otonaki Touge De Hagureta Kmr was instrumental in said lp essentially going from under the radar to out of print by early 2010. Fancy that! And now here we are, almost a year later & Siltbreeze is proud to offer its followup; a 5 track 7" ep entitled Midori Mushi San Connichiwa. If your a fan of the lp, I cant possibly see how this wont be in your wheelhouse. For the unfamiliar, K-MRs sound seems informed by old school Japanese genre snuffers such as Tako & Gunjogacrayon. Combining the jabbering, pan humanoid outthereness of the former w/the zoned, riffed, mutant indifference of the latter, K-MR have created a toxic, dripping blotter of sound that is most appealing to those of us who luxuriate in the humidity of the 1%. Plus, as an added laugh (theirs, mine, yours, ours) theyve tacked on an eerie cover snippet that is a stab in the heart to every campfire singalong & folksy hootenanny through time immemorial. Absolutely tremendous! Released in an edition of 286 to commemorate the year in the Japanese calendar when a wise man went to see the Emperor about a horse." - Siltbreeze.

Price: $5.00
Hey, whaddya know, another 7"! Were knockin these things out like Kosher corn dogs at the state fair. And we aint got a singles club or nothin! This time its Little Claw thats delivering the goods, two new tracks ( Race To The Bottom/Feed You) that careen off the walls of your skull like drunken Valkyries lashing through the halls of Valhalla. What would Odin think? Who cares! Our own Roland S. Woode sez; "The evolution of Little Claw has been wondrous to behold & now their beguiling cluck has found its way into the Siltbreeze ranks. On what is their 5th vinyl outing, the band has laid down 2 distinct tracks & they are mightly gallops of ambidextrous charge. Race To The Bottom rakes across the nodules of your brain w/serrated glee while Feeding You could be a cosmic transmission from futuristic denizens who have carved Terrence Mckenna pancreas into psychedelic sweetbreads & gobbled them for lysergic sustenance. The sound is, as one of the main pie tasters from Bull Tongue recently opined, "Fucking Awesome"! Edition of 400 copies". - Siltblog

Title: Know Your Lloyd Pack
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Captains log, stardate 10.3.12: The Lloyd Pack 7" ep is finally realized. We had picked up a distress signal some weeks back, the call letters unclear, but seemingly emitted from a slow & hostile planet known only as URP. The data transcribed mentioned project (Lloyd Pack), title, (Know Your Lloyd Pack), participants (Russell Walker, Letha Rodman Melchior, Dan Melchior) & facilitator (Siltbreeze). Upon listening to contents, our forward team-though eager albeit without much depth-quickly attempted a single comparison to former Siltbreeze inhabitants, the Shadow Ring regarding sound & style. However, Chief Science Officer Roland Woodbe dismissed this as naive & noted the possibility of an Excalbian conspiracy in such a hasty summation. Woodbe elaborated a deeper analogy, finding in his historical dissection hints to century old former galactic explorers such as Collective Horizontal, 49 Americans & No Half Measures (for example). When presented with the compositions of Lloyd Pack myself I found CSO Woodbes comprehension to be most evolved. That said, the Know Your Lloyd Pack ep occupies its own unique aural atmosphere too. Its drollery is of the highest Anglo-Saxon order, its ambience as crisp as a Gloustershire perry. Overall I have found its essence most logical and as any species this side of 40 Eradani A is aware, with only 300 pressed, its shelf life is surely not long for the galaxy. A portion of all sales will go to the Letha Rodman Melchior Cancer Fund. Peace and Prosper to all. Sincerely, Tiberius Surak Starfleet Commander." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: LOVE IS SO FAST, THE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Exact details on the origins of The Love Is So Fast are vague; essentially, it was a project created by Danyhell and Estrella (currently in Los Llamarada) intended to flesh out bedroom improvisations and act as an inner search for a sense of skeletal (pop) structure amid the morass of postmodern rock effluvium. Performed live and recorded in one take, the five hazy, languorous tracks certainly charge the ions with positive, crystalline zip, creating an electron hole that sounds like alien transmissions from a long-ago Mars. Not the band, friend, the planet! Fans of the debut LP by Los Llamarada (S-S Records) will be downright giddy with the Precambrian narco-menace that comes carbonating off The Love Is So Fasts archival recordings. Or, as the band says themselves: "This is the music we dreamed of but couldnt play." Grab the peyote, I think Im Frida Kahlo." -Siltbreeze

Artist: MACLISE, ANGUS
Title: Brain Damage in Oklahoma City
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Brain Damage in Oklahoma City is the second installment in the Siltbreeze/Quakebasket series of music by poet/mystic/shaman Angus Maclise. Culled from the archives of Mr. Tony Conrad, this volume (covering the years 1967-70) highlights MacLises unique and intricate drumming style. Cembalum, bongos, hand drum, barrel congas -- all are majestically thumpednbumped for maximum orgasmic sensory satisfaction. Comprised of eight tracks, the acme of this collection is the two large ensemble pieces, Dreamweapon Benefit for the Oklahoma City Police Dept. parts 1 & 2, featuring Angus (barrel conga), Hetty MacLise (tampura), the poet Jackson Maclow (recorders and voice), Henry Flynt (song flute and voice) and Tony Conrad (limp string). These tracks, recorded in May of 1968, are the apex of maximalist loft style psychedelic improvisation. Conrads illuminating, occasionally hilarious liner notes set up the narrative of this volume and offering a brief glimpse back into the mind-scrambling fracas that was NYC, USA, Earth 1968. Along with more gorgeous, brain-warping Invasion-style sleeve art, included in the CD booklet is a reproduction of the poster for the Dreamweapon Benefit, confirmation in black and white that for four nights in May, 1968, Wooster Street Cinematheque was definitely one witchy place to be." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: MACLISE, ANGUS
Title: Invasion of the Thunderbolt Pagoda
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The late percussionist and poet Angus Maclise was pure 60s free spirit all the way. A founding member of the Velvet Underground (who quit as soon as he found out they were being paid to play their first gig), Maclises collaborators and compadres read like a Whos Who for the Halana generation: LaMonte Young, Marian Zazeela, Terry Riley, Tony Conrad, Henry Flynt, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, Gerard Malanga and Ira Cohen. His intricate, India-influenced drumming propelled any number of tranced-out jams in New Yorks lofts of the era (a Milford Graves for the psychedelic set, if you will). Though he was meticulous about his recording, very little of Maclises music has ever been made available. The vaults have been opened, and Invasion is the first authorized collection of Maclises work to appear, with other volumes to follow. The 45-minute opening track, St. Marks Epiphany, provides an incredible glimpse of Maclises music -- his unstoppable cross-rhythms, his wife Hetties droning organ and tamboura, and the crazed echoing flute and vocals from an ensemble known as the Mutant Repetoire Company, whose cacophony is rather like an unholy marriage between Amon Düül 1 & the Taj Mahal Travellers. Part of this piece was used as the soundtrack for Invasion of The Thunderbolt Pagoda (from which the CDs photos are taken), the masterful psychedelic film by Ira Cohen, photographer of Spirits Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus and John McLaughlins Devotion -- this is also the complete version of The Joyous Lake -- released long ago in excerpt form on a flexidisc with an issue of Aspen magazine. Also in this first volume is a wild piece for shortwave radios from one of Maclises India excursions, as well as the Sufi trance of Heavenly Blue Pt.4&5 and the communal free jam of Blastitude. Invasion. . closes beautifully with the delerious celtic lulabye Humming in the Night Skull, featuring Maclise on chimes with harmonium and guitar. What else is there to say? This is a remarkable and long overdue celebration of an overlooked and necessary figure of the New York avant garde." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: MAD SCENE
Title: Blip
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Its staggering to think that this is the first album from MAD SCENE since Merge released Chinese Honey way back in 1995. But thats a fact. Not that the band has been inactive on the live front-far from it. When you have a group as diverse as HAMISH KILGOUR (THE CLEAN), LISA SIEGEL (Vegetarian), STEVE THORNTON (Go-To Guy), GEORGIA HUBLEY (YO LA TENGO), GARY OLSEN (Straight Shooter), JOSH FELDMAN (Professional Athlete), CASSIE TUNICK, DANNY TUNICK (Same Last Names!) and Brian Turner (WFMU Music Director), things can get sidelined when it comes to the studio. But eventually things fell into place and for their fourth long-player, the band enlisted SONIC BOOM to produce and mix, then thrust the finished product into the waiting hands of the Siltbreeze label. Blip is a masterful melange of sounds, mixing a range of influences such as nascent Flying Nun chug, Television Personalities DIY psych, shambling Pastels-like rockers and Sarah label indie-pop nuggets. The palette of aural perfection here offers something for everyone. And yeah, it may have taken 17 years to get here, but you cant say it isnt worth the wait. Limited to 500 copies, includes download." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: MANTLES
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"With two acclaimed seven-inches under their belt, THE MANTLES answer the call for more with a stunning debut LP sure to please all who cross its path. The Mantles have been dead-on in distilling a contemporary pop / psych concoction that mixes equal parts early Chills with early Dream Syndicate-and really, who among us wouldnt want a bottle of that with which to quietly tipple the day away? Recorded by GREG ASHLEY, the LP taps said hybrid, and if anything, burrows deeper into the core of rock, extracting essential magma that fuses early SF Ballroom psychedelia, Byrds-ian jangle-pop, and the Velvet Undergrounds extraordinary ability for serpentine leads and bridges. And yep, that pretty much covers all the bases. The band is currently on their first US tour supporting Ty Segall coast to coast. LP includes free digital download." -Siltbreeze
