Artist: BASKET CASE
Title: Sin City Disciples
Format: Cass
Label: Green
Country: USA
Price: $4.50
"So many good things I want to say about Basket Case. Incredible band with a confusing timeline. From what ive gathered, Basket Case existed from 1999-2000, mainly in Detroit, and consisted of Geoff Walker (Gravitar, Spider Tombs), John Olson (American Tapes, Wolf Eyes, Pink Chunk Jazz, etc.) and Lisa Colwell (Commune Ills, Lake Bottoms). Though they recorded constantly and amassed hours and hours of tape, only 10 or Basket Case releases were made, nearly half of which were released after the fact. All limited and impossible to find now. This tape features all live compsitions, very acoustic, sparse, and organic sounding. Recorded 1999 in Lansing and Detroit (at the Detroit Contemporary). Amazing photograph art by Geoff Walker of DC and surrounding Detroit areas. Hopefully more archival Basket Case to come! Double sided color art, color tape labels." - Green. Limited to 50 copies.

"Great reissue on Alt.vinyl of the "Lapidary" cassette. Marcia Bassett, Guitar, and Helena Espvall, Cello, create staggering echoes and atmospheric drones nodding towards contemporary classical ghosts.

The newly edited pieces have been remastered by Patrick Klem and pressed on HEAVY vinyl. Beautifully packaged LP with new photo artwork by Derek Moench. Comes in the heaviest card stock ever!"

Title: Face It/Distance
Format: 7"
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $4.25
"Phase two of Beach Fossils starts here. Gone is the "lo-fi" and the comparisons that go with it. More expansive sounds, John Pena and Katie Garcia on guest vocals, keyboard, electronic drums.... Consider it a taster of things to come." - Captured Tracks.

Artist: BEACH FOSSILS
Title: S/T
Format: CD
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"The story of Beach Fossils starts with frontman Dustin Payseur writing and recording songs for their debut self-titled LP out of his tiny Brooklyn apartment in the Fall of 2009. His recent move from North Carolina that year had left him with a sense of longing to reconnect with his past and the lush open landscape he left behind. During that year Dustin experimented with innovative methods of self-recording (using a Tascam four-track and Logic Pro) and composing. He drew his inspiration from improvisational jazz, classical and shoegaze artists, such as Anthony Braxton, pre-Stereolab project McCarthy and Giuseppe Tartini. Playing all his own instruments (keyboard, drums, bass, guitar), he soon emerged with a shimmering array of sun drenched pop songs. Dustin eventually linked creative forces with John Pena (bass), Sennott Burke (guitar) and Cole Smith (drums) who joined the band and helped collaborate on the songs Wide Awake and Gathering. The full bands immediate chemistry and unforgettable stage presence radiate with a wild, youthful-sincerity. Beach Fossils offers warm and inviting melodies that evoke the haunted sounds of another era: straightforward guitar riffs, a kaleidoscope of psychedelic rhythms, and distant, faded vocals all come together to make the perfect soundtrack to an endless summer afternoon. After hearing their demo last in the spring of 2009, Mike Sniper signed Beach Fossils to Captured Tracks. Since joining the label s roster, Beach Fossils have played CMJ,SXSW, toured the U.S. and are planning a European summer tour." -Captured Tracks.

300 copies pressed. "10 Years ago, Ian Reads (Fire + Ice) Fremdheit label released two Neofolk/Experimental compilations under the name “The Pact?. The second of these compilations contained an unforgettable track from an Australian outfit called Beastianity. Curious about the band and eager to hear more, we tried to dig up as much information as possible – but very little (if any) information was readily available. We were able to find the band shortly after the creation of Dais in 2007, and are proud to announce, along with Praise Dog Publishing, the first ever vinyl release of Beastianitys first and only album “Root?, originally released in 1999 on CD and in Australia only." - Dais.

Artist: BEHRENS, M.
Title: Architectural Commentaries
Format: CD
Label: CMR
Country: New Zealand
Price: $9.50
"German composer and sound artist Marc Behrens has put forth a beautiful installment of sound work for CMRs second CD release, entitled Architectural Commentaries. Marc has been working with sound (in one form or another) since 1986 and is probably most recognised for his digitally re-worked field material and composition. With a long history of installation work and live performance, he has exhibited alone and in group exhibitions; and performed live internationally in locations such as Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, and the UK. He has completed tours with fellow sound artists Francisco Lopez, Bernhard Gunter and John Duncan and has had notable CD releases on Gunters label Trente Oiseaux (Germany), Digital Narcis (Japan), Raster Music (Germany) and Intransitive Recordings (USA). Architectural Commentaries is comprised of five tracks. The first three pieces, entitled Architectural Commentaries 1-3, are some of Marcs most recent compositions arranged in 2001 using basic material recorded from 1990-2000 in various global locations. Taking title, sleeve images and sound together we are left with new audible environments for architectural structures; jets of forced air and amplified nothing, distant machinery and tiny bites of frequency, faded and cut together to create beautifully atmospheric soundscapes. Track 4 was previously released on RLWs Tulpas 5 CD set (Selektion 024) and was constructed using source material from Ralf Wehowsky. Track 5 was composed in 1992 as a soundtrack to accompany the video Der Raum by Torsten Grosch - stills of which feature on the CD sleeve. The album permits a smooth flow between Marcs earlier and more recent work and shows the artists continuing exploration into the depth and dimensions of sound recording." - CMR.

Title: Artist Music Journal Volume 1: Edition 03
Format: Book
Label: Soundscreen Design
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"From Hisham: This AMJ is a compilation made up of mostly collage work I have done over the years, as well as some of my installation drawings. This if the first book of my own so I am excited about it and hope you are as well. It was a simple process to create this book but I am glad to have it out in the world. It describes an era of development for me in my work. I hope to surpass this work by keeping on the creative path but its nice to have something to look back on. Art is for sharing not keeping to yourself. The more people your work can speak to the more powerful it becomes. Let it fall out of your hands and into the minds of others. You cant own it, you can only create it. "Hisham Akira Bharoocha is an artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He concentrates on creating music, visual art, and photography. Bharoocha has had solo exhibitions of his work at DAmelio Terras gallery in New York, as well as Vleeshal, a state run space in The Netherlands. He has been in numerous group exhibitions at galleries such as Deitch Projects, John Connelly Presents, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His work has been published in Art Forum, V, i-D, Flaunt, Tokion, Dossier to name a few. Hisham is well known in the underground music scene for being a founding member of the bands Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. After leaving Black Dice, he created Soft Circle, a solo project that allowed him a more personal exploration of his own musical interests. His first solo album, Full Bloom was released in January 2007 on Eastern Developments. He has a split 12 inch release with High Places that came out in July 2009 on PPM. Soft Circle is now a duo consisting of Bharoocha and Ben Vida (Bird Show/Singer) and they are working on a new album which will come out in the Spring of 2010. Hisham has collaborated with artists such as Doug Aitken on a sound piece that was performed at MoMA during his Sleep Walkers installation, as well as musicians such as the experimental rock group Boredoms in which he helped organize the legendary 77 BOADRUM (which happened on 7/07/07 where 77 drummers performed with the band in Dumbo Brooklyn), 88 BOADRUM (which happened on 08/08/08 where 88 drummers performed with Boredoms in LA, 88 drummers playing with Gang Gang Dance in NYC at the same time) and 9 BOADRUM performances (which happened on 9/09/09 where 9 drummers performed with the band as well as other dates including playing the ATP Festival curated by Flaming Lips)." - Soundscreen Design.

"Reissue of the 1984 classic. Both sides mesmerizing time benders, ominous and beautific. This exuberant opus was conceived about one year in advance, during my final achievement to the so-called bionic music. Originally was finalized for an apologetic movie directed by myself, but this cardiotonic objective was fallen into demagnetizated oblivion. Remained just the palpitating gait of this apocalyptic soundtrack. -- M.B."

Country: USA
Price: $13.25
"First ever vinyl reissue of the highly coveted classic LP by Italian noise composer/ sound visionary Maurizio Bianchi. Originally released in an extremely limited private press quantity in Italy in 1983, Endometrio showcased M.B. at his most crucial turning point, delving into the uncharted waters he aptly titled bionic music, blending organic electronics with contorted sounds of the human body to compose one of the most interesting ambient records to date. Copies of the original LP are practically non-existent and hard to come by, therefore making this reissue an important addition to any experimental aficionados audio library. Complete with current liners and artwork insert from Maurizio Bianchi, limited to 500 hand numbered editions." - Dais.

Label: Small Voices
Country: Italy
Price: $17.00
"Maurizio Bianchi is back on vinyl! A new special limited edition from SmallVoices and the father of Italian industrial music, together with Land Use in this new chapter of his legendary career. An oppressive meditative obscure early-industrial symphony based on two monolithic pieces of thick throbbing stuff. A long deep trip into the darker meanderings of the human mind... good luck!" - Small Voices. From the liner-notes "Electro-neural mitosis for hypochondriac neurotronic waves and farraginous tone emissions, achieved during the decline of the 2005 by Maurizio Bianchi and Land Use." Preface "The tabular discovery of the infectious scent is unseatting the undelayable grinding of an extremistic property. In the rancid combination of "Bionic Music" and "Musique Concr败", the virological zoning renders some synthetic and respectable optograms to the marginal intractability. TSE-K oppresses the phototherapeutic egotism with its pre-recorded electronic sources and deranged acoustic samples. Its the sharp and insignificant scream melted together with mutated voices... Physiological disinfestation and sonic treatment for the hypochondriac listener." - Maurizio Bianchi

"Kicking off the new OESB 7" series with a 4 track single by Big Troubles. International playboy Matt Mondanile (Real Estate, Ducktails) discovered Big Troubles and urged Olde English Spelling Bee to sign these guys on the spot for their fresh industrial shoegaze pop sound.

Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The very premise of this musical -- executives borrowing an apartment to cheat on their wives -- makefidelity to the nth degree, they will likely enjoy the wit of the dialogue and the bouncy score. But take note: there is a suicide attempt and a drunk scene -- not exactly fare for young ones. Debut LP by Ridgewood, NJ shoegazers Big Troubles. Its pretty good. Parental advisory stickers not included." With glossy full-color insert and download coupon. "This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. Theres an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing Bite Yr Tongue to the euphorically hooked-up Freudian Slips. Theres an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak -- making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none. Very highly recommended." - Boomkat.s this show entertainment for grown-ups. If youre cool with your older children being exposed to in

Title: Our Love Will Destroy the World
Format: CD
Label: Pseudoarcana
Country: New Zealand
Price: $11.00
"A new 5 track album (settling in around the 2 epic tracks from the screamformelongbeach 3" cdr) Our Love Will Destroy the World finds Campbell Kneale engaged in a deeper archaeological sifting of the rock and metal tropes that he has recently been exploring with Black Boned Angel. Whilst remaining resolutely a Birchville album the instrumentation employed has been culled from the heavier end of the metal spectrum to produce what many is perhaps Birchvilles most accessible album to date. Fluidly shifting but piercing guitar feedback and endlessly heavy riffs are married to grindcore drumming, organ fugues and electronics to create a huge wash of sound that somehow manages to exemplify the ecstatic beauty of so much of the Birchville oeuvre at the same time as being supremely heavy. This is the Birchvilles bliss reverie ROCK album..." -Pseudoarcana

"The Bitters are Aerin Fogel and Ben Cook (Fucked Up, Young Governor). Formed in the east end of Toronto, The Bitters write and record their self-proclaimed Cave Pop from their studio, an artistic cooperative shared with Torontos most creative musicians. Their debut 12? 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. The band is a result of Cook and Fogels prolific efforts and their ability to construct songs ranging from 50s melodies atop dark post-punk instrumentals, to 90s throwback alternative and grunge, which stems from their unique dynamic as friends and partners. Their collaborative work appears live with the help of drummer Jonah Falco (Fucked Up) and a rotation of starry guest bassists." - Mexican Summer. Edition of 1000.

Price: $9.75
"Hot on the heels of their debut Mexican Summer long-player, THE BITTERS, consisting of AERIN FOGEL and the ever-prolific BEN COOK (ROOMMATES, YOUNG GOVERNOR, FUCKED UP), bring us their Have a Nap Hotel EP. This Toronto-based duo have built a name for themselves forging their self-coined "cave pop" genre, which merges elements of 50s melodies and dark post-punk instrumentals with just a hint of flannel. 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.

Artist: BLACK JOKER
Title: Watch Out!
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $13.25
"Fully re-mastered vinyl edition of what was originally a Europe-only cassette released in an edition of 80 copies from the solo project of Spencer Clark of The Skaters/Vodka Soap/Monopoly Child et al. Spencer describes Black Joker as being more drone-focused and with faster percussion than the recent Monopoly Child sets. Indeed, the percussion is thrifty and up-front, with arcs of criss-crossing time signatures generating maximum space/time confusion. The combination of trance-informed momentum and bubbling electronic sci-fi tones sounds closest to one of the Sun Ra Arkestras most future-visioned takes on “Ancient Aethiopia” while expanding on the classic post-Angus MacLise feel of all of the best Skaters material. Comes with pro-printed 80s style 12” maxi-sleeves with liner notes by Fortean authority, itinerant visionary and Skaters road mangler in-absentia Charles Berlitz. ”…the drifting of desert sand sculptures appearing within crystaline miraged mountains during a cycle in which the gleaming of sand star sparkled night is blown, floating towards dawn, as the racing of the camels amongst the sunbound mirages expend dimensions of presentation for these sculptures, which, as wind diminishes and returns, a sand is cast to represent the variety of dimensions interacted : as symbold vision, where the atmosphered wind senses the stars amongst the sand, the camel within the mirage, and the mediation of an experiences whole motion of interaction...” - David Keenan

Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"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.

"BLANK DOGS proposition does also contain a great deal of the otherworldly, I think you shall find the way in which they resonate uncertain and hazy like transmissions coming from the other side most appealing, like reliable messengers delivering a lost love letter across impossible distances with a fierce passion which reminds me of that most excellent Sir John Maus. Blank Dogs seem to have studied in the cadaverous school of German minimalism where thaumaturgs such as Grauzone excelled, but covered some of the piercing angles with the flesh and blood of the new wave that these Islands did bear, particularly Joy Division and even Young Marble Giants at certain moments of trembling melodic beauty. All laced with that distorted barbed wire one finds in so many promising new acts from the other side of the pond. Formidable material, I am sure you will agree, do purchase their album On Two Sides when it is made available and you shant be disappointed."-20 Jazz Funk Greats

Title: Phrases

Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"...Occasionally calling in collaborators from the likes of Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls and Times New Viking, Phrases, Snipers latest EP in a long succession of vinyl-only releases, sees him going it alone for the most part. Indeed, its hard to envisage anyone else being allowed sufficient mindspace to create alongside Sniper, such is the vast propensity of ideas that fill the four tracks here. While the opening electro-tinged robotics of Heat And Depression resembles a Crystal Castles outtake, Sniper mumbling "Can you see yourself?" with surreptitious repetition over a distorted funky bassline, its on Phrases other three tracks that his more obscure influences start to take hold. Blurred Tonight takes The Cramps danse macabre schtick through the same backdoor as The Horrors managed so successfully last year, except with even more menacing vocal assertions courtesy of that man Sniper. His voice then gets the heavily reverbed treatment on Racing Backwards, a Cure-inspired number that sees the opulent Sniper make the offer "stay to the end" which becomes increasingly difficult to refuse as verse usurps chorus. Despite Blank Dogs NYC dancefloor tendencies, theres something inadvertently English about these compositions, suitably realised in the closing End Of Summer which takes Depeche Modes early Roland Jupiter-led blueprint before mashing it into a collage of post-punk ambience, beats and all..." - from Drowned In Sound.

"BlankDogs are actually singular: Its the insanely prolific one-man Brooklyn-based band of Mr. Blank Dog. We dont know too much about the biography of the guy behind the bedroom new-wave pop/punk and hes usually covering his face with masks or bedspreads, but thats fine. The aura of anonymity allows you to focus on the sounds -- and, really, he might be releasing a ton of things, but theres definitely a higher jam to crap ratio. Its like Joy Division vocal lines with the Cures synth and guitar melodies filtered through ancient submerged keyboards and eroded recording equipment. And that voice? All the feedback in the world cant hide his knack for melody. Blank Dogs have been making plenty of rumbles in the noisier and more secretive outposts of the underground (half his discographys sold out), but Troubleman Unlimiteds just repressed his very recommended full-length On Two Sides (on yellow vinyl in an edition of 500) and In The Reds releasing a 20-song double LP (or single CD) Under And Under in January. Its all new material. Hes also playing his first shows this month in NYC, so if you want to take a peek, you can. All this to say: Seems like BlankDogs is on his way out of the basement."-stereogum.

Title: Judged by 12, Carried by 6
Format: LP
Label: Release The Bats
Country: Sweden
Price: $17.50
"Founded as a duo by T. Graves and Reyna Kay in September 2008, Blessure Grave blurs the lines between the goth, postpunk and neofolk genres. The pair has since developed the project into a full band while building a cult-like following, scattering various vinyl and tape releases on boutique labels around the globe. Citing Killing Joke, Death in June, March Violets and The Cure as influences, Blessure Grave injects a pop sensibility into songs otherwise doomed to dreariness, creating an interesting mix of old and new but dark all around. The music initially appears rather simple, but quickly reveals the fact that the songs are fully fleshed-out and genuinely memorable. The album provides the perfect soundtrack for contemplating todays troubled times or for simply being swept away with the nostalgic 80s vibe that permeates much of the recording. The band does not waste a lot a time allowing tracks to drone on: the songs are short and to the point, with the average track approximately three minutes in length. 12 tracks." - Release the Bats.

Title: Puff
Format: CD

Price: $8.50
First album now on CD (vinyl is long out of print)! "...the music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin. It germinates absolutely from the bowels of the Blues but erupts via a postmodern portal; there are gorgeous sheens of rust that fissure throughout, harmonicas smoke in the distance, guitars splatter, keyboards ooze white hot neo psychedelic lava, in the end, like the music emitted from Apollos lyre, it is a devastatingly wondrous experience. And as much as I hear the (non specific) PSF or Akiyama buzz, to me Blues Control seem beget from the prominent clang & snarl of Dead C, who was beget by This Heat, who was beget by Faust, from whose seed it all originated. And thats nothin to sneeze about, unless yous is allergic to greatness. A cd on Holy Mountain is next. Theys on tour right now too, so drop everything & go seeem! I know its early, but Puff seems a shoe-in for one of the years best." - Siltblog.

Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"Borghesia is an electronic music group from Ljubljana, Slovenia, created in 1982 by Aldo Ivancic and Dario Seraval who were members of the alternative theater troupe FV-112/15. Along with Laibach, Borghesia is the most successful band from the territory of former Yugoslavia who launched the activist movement and managed to turn sexual freedom into an important political issue by creating the New Slovenian Art scene. After two cassette-only releases the band recorded their debut vinyl LP Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti (“Love Is Colder Than Death�?) during the winter of 1983-84. The band was eager to use early sampling techniques to construct tracks from cut up radio noises and movie dialogue. They developed their own brand of EBM (Electronic Body Music) that combined symphonic synthesizers (Korg PolySix), funky basslines, military drum beats (Roland TR-808) and harsh, crisp sequenced rhythms that repeat in trance-like loops (Roland TB-303). All songs from Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti are sung/recited in Croatian and use the imagery of the prohibited, tabooed and repressed. Equal parts Chris & Cosey, Cabaret Voltaire, Art of Noise and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. All tracks have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studio in Berkeley. Pressed on blood red vinyl, each disc is manufactured with its own unique pattern: no two discs are identical. Each LP is housed in an exact replica of the original large 6-panel fold out poster with lyrics and photos. Limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies." - Dark Entries.

Artist: BOWER, MATTHEW & MATTIN
Title: A New For Of Beauty
Format: CD
Label: Bottrop-Boy
Country: Germany
Price: $14.50
"With the release of A New Form of Beauty Irish band Virgin Prunes placed themselves firmly on the map of experimental post-punk. This was the unprecedented cathartic musical experience of the early eighties. Din Glorious was the name of the breathtaking coda of this legendary Prunes session. This type of harrowing noise is also evident on Mattin & Matthew Bowers A New Form of Beauty (1975). Not a follow-up but a magnificent, searing chords of chords. Basque noise expert Mattin has undoubtedly found his blood brother in Matthew Bower, the British godfather of noise-rock. In his Theses on Noise (2006) Mattin wrote: “the old conception of Noise was to believe in freedom; the new conception of Noise is to achieve freedom”. This is noise with a higher aim, this is noise as utopian ideal. Using guitars and electronics, Mattin and Bower mould a relentlessly pounding tsunami of sound. No time to catch your breath in this long, thundering tornado of noise, feedback, distortion and screaming strings. A screeching guitar occasionally lifts its head above the whirling maelstrom. Ghostlike sounds rise towards the surface of this sonic mass; is that a wailing, desolate violin or a radio I hear in the distance? Am I hallucinating or is this indeed that new beauty? Mattin & Bower far exceed the pain threshold. No need to prick up your ears; expect your eardrums to be pierced. Just when you think calm has returned, the duo decides to increase the dose. At the end of their piece Mattin & Bower reveal an unparalleled vertiginous abyss of noise. The listener is transported from high to higher plateaus of sound. Cries for help are suppressed as salvation comes nigh. This is white noise from the dark side. This is indeed a new form of beauty. A New Form Of Beauty (1975) is packed in beautiful new envelope packaging designed and handprinted by Jason Dodge & Christine Roland." -Bottrop-Boy.

Title: An Attempt To Record Coincidence
Format: LP
Label: Neros Neptune
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Pictured in all its tantalizing, eye-popping glory in Hans Pokoras 1001 Record Collector Dreams, this hellishly-rare Austrian avant garde LP from 1972 is nothing short of astonishing. There are no instruments, but rather varying configurations of solo, duo and ensemble vocal improvisations, presumably informed by the aforementioned (and nearly impenetrable) code (or "charts"). Although this might be seen as part of an interesting continuum, this unique and prescient music will stun even the most astute followers of outsider art. Describe it, you say? Sweet Jesus! "Shape note singing for acidheads," perhaps? From an avant-classical perspective, one might mention late-60s Penderecki as a possible reference point (along with Ligeti, or perhaps even Nono). In improvised music, the Spontaneous Music Ensembles larger workshop groups similarly feature masses of vocal sounds; comparisons with Alan Watts This Is It are as plausible as they are inevitable. Ultimately, though, nothing will quite prepare you for this LP. In fact, when an original copy landed at Neros Neptune headquarters, one notorious "outsider" label chief/collector extraordinaires peni-meter became so perilously engorged, that he nearly burst with envy, casting ridiculous offers of rare wax and unmentionable "favors" Neros Neptunes way while begging to let him take over. In other words, it is strongly recommended that you purchase this limited reissue while you can, while securing appropriate spiritual condiments for the trip. After all, you CAN be anyone this time around. Strictly limited edition of 500 copies only. Packaged in high-gloss, tip-on sleeves, and pressed on 180 gram vinyl." - Neros Neptune.

Format: One Sided LP
Label: What The...?
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"Well there is much to say about this record of voices with much to say, so perhaps best to allow one who would know to speak the most for all -- "As part of the 25th anniversary of the Butte County Free Music Society, At The North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 follows The Butte County Free Music Society boxset Induced Musical Spasticity and The Brent Lewiis Ensembles Three Christs of Ypsilanti. 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 Smegma and other bent LAFMS trippers, the UKs A Band, 5 Starcle Men, Gastric Female Reflex, Id M Theft Able, 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, Serious Problmz, and Bananafish magazine. In comparison to the only other available recording of a complete live performance by the group (the side-long “Industrial Barbecue,” on the above-mentioned BUFMS boxset), At The North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 is starker and more minimal overall. Performing as a quintet at a university open mic night in the student union cafeteria, the group had played live only once prior (a “bongos in the dirt” affair in the parking lot of an art gallery), they had yet to amass the collection of ubiquitous tape players and answering machines that accompanied most subsequent performances and recordings.

Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"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 late 80s were an especially fruitful period for Achim, and it was during this time that his group Brigitte & the Hansen Experience released their only album. Packaged in an unassuming cover, the records two side-long tracks were a mutant space-rock hybrid assembled from distorted samples, stretches of atmospheric interference, and out-of-sync beats so profoundly damaged that the few listeners who had acquired the LP were left disoriented and amazed. Because of the LPs limited edition, its arrival was overlooked at the time, and it has remained an elusive collectible known of by only a lucky few.

Taken from various recordings over a period from 05/06, the core duo of brother and sister Michael and Kristina Donnelly are joined by EON in a killer trio setting. Not as psych-acid as some of the recent BOTOS output. Not to say the group doesnt kick up a good racket, its just way spacious and soft sounding at points, like seeing various twinkling stars through hazy fog. Lots of dreamy moments of quite acoustic strum and subtle synth weirdness. The usual battery of instruments, toy and otherwise, are in effect. And of course, LOADS of percussive implosions...but not at all heavy handed. Sounds like a Sunday morning jam with your best friends outside in a garden just after tea.

"Decked out in a skullfucked sleeve that looks like a cross between Slayers gorecore classic Seasons In The Abyss and the prison tattoo iconography of original Cleveland gutter punks The Electric Eels, the debut vinyl from Ohios Burning Star Core reconciles the euphoric, physical power of Metal with punk primitive aesthetics and huge lungfuls of drone. The A side is 16 minutes of heavy violin thats more Sonny Sharrock than Tony Conrad, with mainman C Spencer Yeh amassing waves of singing overtones via treated strings and electronics, while Chris Rosing provides the horizontal momentum, accelerating the piece towards the horizon with an epileptic bass drum and some furiously clanking chains. The piece builds to nowhere, growing more potentially eplosive and menacing with each pass, with Yeh stretching his violin to even more extended peaks while never relenting on the tension. The second side features Yeh alone, working through some "sleep deprivation experiments" with a laptop for company. Here he alternates strangulated computer tones that sound liek theyre being torn from a huge electronic harmonica with wraithe-like breaths turning through disconcertingly staggered loops." - David Keenan, WIRE.

"Challenger is a composed work rather than his more improvised work, each piece revolving around a central melodic theme with field recordings, an audio diary bridging the gaps. Its emotions of a period of time set to tape. The sounds range from pure tonal mood to huge electronic crescendos. But whats most remarkable is the use of space, where parts come in and drop to build or recede .When the piano crashes in "Mysteries of the Organ" its almost a frustration of paradise, a rejection of perfection or maybe a jolt of inexplicable life, unable to be translated into proper `communication. Juxtaposed with the quiet haunting of "Hopelessly Devoted" which sounds like a love letter written to outer space, it makes for an album that is both dynamic yet consistent as a full statement."-Plastic.
