Title: Rojvi
Format: LP
Label: Noose
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
The folks behind this LP are same as those on the Jim Collins LP (which is long sold out) but I guess someone involved wasnt completely satisfied with the results so it was released under a different name. Its definitely got the same desolate downer folk/psych vibe with the ultra-mysterious presentation intact. Heres what I had listed for the Jim Collins a year or two back: "Easily one of THE best examples of "loner acid downer psychedelic folk" I have ever heard. References would likely include touches of Charlie Tweddle, Peter Grudzien, Skip Spence, Simon Finn, Bobb Trimble, etc. NYC psychedelic dealer Paul Major describes it as sounding like what a Jandek album might sound like if any of them were actually any good. Most importantly, unlike other "acid folk psych" records where youre left wondering where they might have hidden the "acid" and "psych" parts, this record is full of distorted and wah-wah electric guitar leads throughout both sides. The catch here is that nobody can tell me when, or exactly where, this is from. I know its US and I am fairly sure its not more than 5 or 6 years old, perhaps only 2 or 3 (but the fact that its on LP and not CD clouds the whole thing); the sleeve is a killer purple psychedelic kind of Halloween painting and the whole thing just has the home made obscure-O vibe to the max. Already offered overseas in near 3 figure range and definitely going to climb when copies disappear. Thus far, nothing but high marks from everyone whos heard it." - Stan Denski. Early 90s (?) mystery which, after being unearthed by Denski and Majors, changed hands for $35.00+ right out of the box. Not sure how many were pressed but i do know that it hasnt been offered anywhere other than dealer lists. Got a handful of copies at a non -collector price."

“Terrys second seven inch features three new songs that explore themes of patriarchy in politics, mass consumption versus lifestyle choices and the dating scene.

Title: Remember Terry
Format: LP
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
180 gram vinyl. "Terry is also a band from Melbourne, Australia: Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band, Primo), Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell St Bombings), and Al Montfort (UV Race, Dick Diver, Total Control). Guitars, bass, drums, all four sing. Terry is a particularly active, having released two EPs and a full-length album Terry HQ (UTR 084CD/LP) in 2016 on Upset The Rhythm. After returning from summer 2016s European tour, Terry set about writing a new album of songs. These are now grouped together as Remember Terry, an album full of wish fulfilment, critiqued characters, memorial muscle, and historical hustle. "Start The Tape" is a not quite two-minute careen through what Terry are best known for; gang vocals, chased-down melodies and acerbic commentary. Terry draw on their everyday realities to make personal conclusions; "I cant live here, I cant leave here" they collectively sing through the strummed guitars and skittling synths of "Heavin Heavies". Somehow the serious nature of the themes handled in their songs are only further emphasized by the tuneful, arguably "sing-along" treatment Terry usually employ. "Give Up The Crown", "The Colonel", and "Gun" are other prime examples of this, packed full of assembled vocal harmonies, contagious riffs, and rhetoric. With tracks like "Glory" and "Homage", Terry allow their fans to see a more laid-back side of their personality. Supplemented with fluorescing synth lines and adopting an unhurried pace, both songs lull you into a false sense of pleasantry, only to pack a greater punch when lyrics like "Off his bloody head goes", or, "No head, no choice, no land, no time, no crime, no good" surface. "Take Me To The City" is a similarly evocative stroll through the "bright night city lights", with Amy and Xanthe listing their nightlife observations over languorous guitar lines and programmed drums. Terry prefer to make a profound point in a quiet way, hectoring bypassed for self-revelation. The truth is in there, just skating below the surface of their glammy, country-stepping punk/pop odysseys, you only have to listen carefully. Remember Terry is a fitting follow-up to last years celebrated debut album. Throughout an expansion of sound and subject-matter though, Terry remain committed to telling it straight, reporting from the frontline of the political made personal. Digitized by Nick Kuceli. Mixed and mastered by Mikey Young." - Upset the Rhythm.

Title: Talk About Terry
Format: 7"
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
“White vinyl. Terry is Al Montfort (UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver, etc.), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band), and Zephyr Pavey (East Link, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings). Inevitably, Terry likes to make noise. Drums, guitars, and all his voices come into play, making a solid raft for Terrys melancholic musings to navigate the languid rapids. This all unravels at its own pace, a conversation with the commonplace. Talk About Terry marks the bands first venture into the recorded domain, collecting three of the greatest misshapen glam pop tunes Melbourne has to offer.” - Upset the Rhythm.

Title: Terry HQ
Format: LP
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Includes download code. Love is a highway, but youre not likely to find Terry there anymore. Hes on the train. Terry saw the light, and he put on his sunhat. Ring Ring - "If youre carsick, get outta the car!" Theres only room for one big pug in this doggy daycare. Terrys taken to the night. Thank you nurse, Ill see myself out. LOOK! There he is, peeping through the cracks in your screen. Nuanced. Mercurial. Free. Blowing you a kiss. Marcel Marceau, Shmarshel Shmarsheau! But Terry? How unforgettable. What will you do when the cloud gives way? When the map leads you to a pile of potatoes? We wuz wrong. Hit me with your algorithm stick! Siri, is death an illusion? Siri, am I locked in a prison of my own making? Dont pull that thread kiddo. Siris gone. Talk about truth! But when youre ready for real answers? Talk about Terry. "Their debut single features three doses of shambly Television Personalities/Swell Maps style earworm indie rock." -- Brooklyn Vegan "A nervy throwback to that late-70s era when punk began to mutate in countless directions, matching a deadpan vocal with an incessant chord progression and piling on the sonic chaos. Why would you say sorry for that? they wonder aloud, and certainly theres no need to apologize for keeping this strain of musical antagonism alive." - Stereogum.
