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.

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.

Title: New York Electronic, 1965
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
“Black vinyl repress. Sub Rosa presents another release as a part of their early electronic series. Drone-based experiments from Angus MacLise (notably with Tony Conrad extremely present on the album, and John Cale), and purely electronic compositions -- a path (almost) nobody knew MacLise had explored. Miraculously salvaged by Gerard Malanga, these archives provided a new perspective on the artists whole body of work and considerably expanded his artistic palette. And so Sub Rosa is able to present a whole records worth of MacLises early electronic music. Angus MacLise, born March 4, 1938 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was a percussionist, composer, poet, and calligrapher. He was a member of La Monte Youngs Theater Of Eternal Music with John Cale, Tony Conrad, Marian Zazeela and sometimes Terry Riley. He contributed to the early Fluxus newspaper V Tre, edited by George Brecht and George Maciunas, and was also an early member of The Velvet Underground, having been brought into the group by flatmate John Cale when they were living at 56 Ludlow Street in Manhattan. MacLise played bongos and hand-drums during 1965 with the first incarnation of The Velvet Underground. Although the band regularly extemporized soundtracks to underground films during this era (The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda by Ira Cohen, Chumlum by Ron Rice), MacLise never officially recorded with them. Later in the 1960s, Angus and his wife Hetty traveled around between Vancouver, Paris, Greece and India, finally settling in Nepal. They also had a son, Ossian Kennard MacLise, who was recognized by Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, the 16th Karmapa, as a reincarnation of a Tibetan saint, or tulku, and at age four became a Buddhist monk. MacLise died of hypoglycemia and pulmonary tuberculosis in Kathmandu in 1979, aged 41. He recorded a vast amount of music that went largely unreleased until 1999. These recordings, produced between the mid-60s and the late-70s, consist of tribal trance workouts, spoken-word, poetry, drones and electronics, as well as many collaborations with his wife Hetty. In 2008, Hetty MacLise bequeathed a collection of her husbands tapes to the Yale Collection of American Literature.” - Sub Rosa.
