Norman & Robert



FAUST - So Far 7“ (play loud - The only ever released faust single is now reissued for the first time since 1972. Original artwork, remastered by Hans-Joachim Irmler.) 8.00

RAINCOATS / THE GOSSIP - Drunken Maria / Monk Chant 7“ (play loud - In September of 2009 play loud! asked Gossip and The Raincoats if they would like to see a 7 inch release of their contributions to the highly acclaimed soundtrack album Silver Monk Time - a Tribute to the Monks (compilation of the year 2007 in Wire Magazine).) 8.00


DAMO SUZUKI & THE SOUND CARRIERS - Live at Marie-Antoinette DLP (play loud - Recorded November 24, 2011, Marie-Antoinette, Berlin, Germany. Damo Suzuki (Can): voice; Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM, Angel): electric baritone guitar and effects; Ilpo Väisänen (Pan Sonic, Angel): electronics and effects; Michael Beckett (kptmichigan, Super Reverb): electric guitar and effects; Claas Großzeit (Saal-C): drums and percussion; Tomoko Nakasato (Mio, JINN): dance and electric rake. Live mix by Austin Brown; studio mix by Dirk Dresselhaus at ZONE, Berlin; mastered by Rashad Becker. Designed by Tobias Frindt.) 20.00

DIE GEHIRNE - Ihre großen Erfolge LP (play loud - To release a tape in East Germany in 1986 called “Ihre großen Erfolge” (‘Their Great Successes’) illustrates how every situation produces people unwilling to accept that situation. Claus Löser and Florian Merkel were two such people. Their band Die Gehirne and their many side-projects ensured that their hometown of Karl-Marx-Stadt, today’s Chemnitz, could assert its role in the independent art world of the GDR. Inspirations included Frank Bretschneider from the experimental electronic band AG Geige, the artist friend Klaus Hähner-Springmühl, the jazz guitarist Joe Sachse and the free jazz figures Conny Bauer and Luten Petrowsky.) 24.00

DRIP FED - Kill The Buzz LP (I corrupt - Drip-Fed from Austin, Texas, did it again and recorded a killer of a hardcore-punk album, this time with the help of Beau Burchel (Saosin, The Bled, Moose Blood) and Alan Douches (Converge, Touché Amoré, Torche). Kill The Buzz is the band's second full-length album. Its eleven songs are driven by high energy and come along with damn lot of groove and banger riffs. Drip-Fed recorded such kind of an album for which repeat buttons got invented. Fans of Fury, One Step Closer, Drug Church or Turnstile certainly will know how to enjoy this.) 16.00

FAMILIE HESSELBACH - 1982 LP (play loud - The German Talking Heads! It is only now, when they sound as they should have done, that we realise that the Hesselbach Family were the Talking Heads in this completely unlikely constellation. Now their music can be heard as the manifesto it was kind of meant to be, with its self-mocking refrain: stop making common sense!) 25.00

FLOATING DI MOREL / ULF - ulf / fdm LP (play loud - The band members in their own words: “The new (5th) Floatin´ LP is divided in two parts. On one side you hear the last works together with Thorsten Neu, which you know from the records “said my said” and “goal less play”. The other side is a new more electronic experience with ULF.”) 13.00

KLICK & AUS - AIDS delikat LP (play loud - Official holidays played a role in the short but tumultuous life of the East Berlin Impro-Punk band Klick & Aus, beginning with Walpurgis Night in 1983 when two members of the band met for the first time: Sala Seil, saxophonist, singer and dancer, and Tohm di Roes, poet, drummer and singer. In the summer the duo was joined by bassist ToRo Klick, who had been crafting rhythms with Thom di Roes since 1982. Still nameless, the trio opened an exhibition by artist W.A. Scheffler at the private gallery “rot-grün” in Berlin’s Sredzkistraße, a team of producers grouped around the brothers Erhard und Mario Monden. The noise-laden performance heralded the birth of a new band: Klick & Aus, using the bassist’s surname to create a militant multilayered association. ) 24.00

MIND MAINTENANCE - Mind Maintenance LP (drag city - Mind Maintenance is the new duo consisting of Joshua Abrams (Natural Information Society) and Chad Taylor (Chicago Underground Duo, Chad Taylor Trio). This is where the music begins, but Mind Maintenance can't be described simply as a summation of its parts and players. When you put on the sound, you'll know what we're saying - you'll notice how immediate and meditative it is; how simple, how "in the room," and how the natural buzz of each instrument sits remarkably well against the other. The percussive qualities of the guimbri and the mbira, so raw and unadorned individually, form with their shared resonance a soothing, sonorous whole. It's not about world music, it's not about jazz. It's about mind maintenance. The songs of Mind Maintenance exist in a zone somewhere between composition and improv. Based in melodies that unspool over time, they benefit from Chad and Joshua's intimately enmeshed sensibility and the intensity with which they listen to each other. Chad and Joshua have been playing together forever - or, if you need to think of it more tangibly, since around 1994. Based on our research, the pairing of guimbri and mbira is more than unusual - it appears to be without precedent! This is incredible if it's true, but more important to the music of Mind Maintenance is the shared ground of inspiration that both instruments occupy. Mind Maintenance pursue their inspirations on these instruments down similarly transformative paths. If some part of the 21st century isn't focused on destruction, but instead, locating a place where our traditions can work together in new ways to entertain and even ensure well-being, then that's just one more incentive for all of us to consider Mind Maintenance.) 35.00

MOUNTAIN MOVERS - World What World LP (purple vinyl) (Tim - Mountain Movers arguably are the perfect band for all the true “heads” out there. The New Haven quartet have been at it for 15 years, and the “newest” lineup (now at it for well over a decade; vocalist/guitarist Dan Greene, bassist Rick Omonte, guitarist Kryssi Battalene and drummer Ross Menze) have firmly grasped what it takes to fry brains; achingly beautiful melodies buoyed by a life raft of white-hot guitar scree and mind-melting feedback. “World What World” is the band’s eighth album and third for Trouble In Mind Records. ) 23.00

NANCY SINATRA - Start Walkin' 1965-1976 DLP (light in the attic - The definitive new collection surveys Sinatra’s most prolific period over 1965–1976, including her revered collaborations with Lee Hazlewood, over 23 tracks. Remastered from the original analog tapes by GRAMMY®–nominated engineer John Baldwin, the collection is complemented by liner notes penned by Amanda Petrusich (author and music critic at The New Yorker), featuring insightful new interviews with Sinatra, as well as a Q&A with archivist and GRAMMY®–nominated reissue co-producer, Hunter Lea. The two-disc vinyl set is presented in a gatefold jacket (featuring a 24–page booklet). Nancy’s performance of the Lee Hazlewood–penned song “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” was a huge hit in 1966 and became her signature tune. The pair began a three year run of successful albums, duets, and singles including “Sugar Town,” “Some Velvet Morning,” “Summer Wine,” “Sand,” “Jackson,” and the title track to the 1967 James Bond film “You Only Live Twice.” Start Walkin’ explores Nancy’s recordings with Lee, her inspired collaborations with songwriter Mac Davis (“Hello L.A., Bye Bye Birmingham”), producer Lenny Waronker (“Hook and Ladder”), and the “should’ve been hit” song with arranger/producer Billy Strange (“How Are Things In California.”) Over the years, she has been cited as an influence by countless artists, including Sonic Youth, Morrissey, Calexico, U2, and Lana Del Rey. Her haunting song “Bang, Bang” gained a new legion of fans when it appeared in the opening credits of Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film, Kill Bill Volume 1.) 47.00

ORNAMENT & VERBRECHEN - Rotmaul Tape LP (play loud - In 1988, the legendary freakwave outfit Ornament & Verbrechen handed out some 20 to 30 copies of their “Rotmaul-Tape“ to friends. The band, formed by the Lippok brothers, emerged from the first East Berlin punk group Rosa Extra and the avant-wave project Fünf Wochen im Ballon. From the moment of O&V’s inception, the band was the wellspring for many acts that would subsequently branch off as tributaries and streams in the East Berlin underground music community. Bands like Aufruhr zur Liebe and projects like Corp Cruid, The Local Moon and Bleibeil originated in the environment or from the collaboration with a band that functioned like an open house in the closed institution GDR. By 1995 To Rococo Rot and Tarwater had formed from this tried-and-tested framework, pursuing the template without copying it. After the GDR infarction in 1989, the project Ornament & Verbrechen continued to glow, sparking new ideas and flaring up again today.) 24.00

PARA ONE - Spectre: Machines Of Loving Grace DLP (wrwtfw -Machines of Loving Grace, the new album by Para One, whose real name is Jean-Baptiste de Laubier could be called fiction. It is an object freed from constraints, formats, genres, territories: the gospel of a new world. Six years after Club, eight years after Passion, his previous LP, this lover of electronic music, who has also been putting his sensitivity to the service of movies (soundtracks for Céline Sciamma in particular) opens with this record a new dimension in his artistic career. “I needed to break away from patterns and systematisms of formats, and take unexpected turns. To do so, I had first to allow myself to do so”. Allow oneself and maybe above all confront oneself – with one’s childhood, with one’s childhood’s ghosts, and what fantasies, ideals, memories, and grey areas they harbor. He had to go back – without giving up on his position as an adult, as a full-fledged artist – to the sources of his imagination, to the moment when music was holding almost mystical power. And then revisit it to make something new out of it. Just like Sanity, Madness & the Family (the feature film directed by Para One that he just finished and of which it is a consubstantial part), Machines of Loving Grace has an investigation around a family secret and the father figure as its starting point. “When you go down the path – of a work, of a person, of the past – you never really find out what was. Incredible work with influences from Kenji Kawai, Midori Takada, Steve Reich, Drexciya, The Orb etc.) 27.00

ROKY ERICKSON - All That May Do My Rhyme LP (play loud - Roky Erickson is a legend. Former member of the 13th Floor Elevators he was considered the white James Brown. Drug problems and a diagnosed schizophrenia made him an outsider. By the '90s, he was struggling to survive on a $200 monthly Social Security check. In 1990 artists like R.E.M., ZZ Top, and the Jesus and Mary Chain recorded his songs for a tribute album. Erickson performed publicly for the first time in many years at the Austin Music Awards. In 1994 he returned to the studio with guitarists Charlie Sexton and the Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary to record ALL THAT MAY DO MY RHYME. = 20.00

SWEET TEETH - Acid Rain EP LP (lovely - Sweet Teeth, perfect smile and raw beauty. Behind it all we find the perfect blend of catchy, punky, fuzzy power pop and alternative rock. Lyrics about heartbreak. Small town ambitions and dreams side by side with noisy guitars and sugar sweet melodies. Nothing goes quite so fast in the countryside, therefore it's normal that we find the melodic tunes of 90's music tangled with straight forward and poetic words. Sweet Teeth sounds like Hüsker Dü mixed with Flaming Groovies, Ramones mixed Big Star or even The Hellacopters mixed with Dinosaur Jr. Straight forward and very honest. From the rural parts of Sweden we can find these Sweet Teeth. Members have all played music in bands like The Deadbeats, Disfear, Dollhouse, Year Of The Goat. Tortyr and The Dontcares. Together they find a perfect blend of musical history.) 21.00

V/A - Music is the Most Beautiful Language in the World - Yiddisher Jazz in London's East End 1920s to 1950s LP (play loud - A vibrant soundtrack to the Cockney Jewish experience, when the swinging hot dance bands were still all the rage, and the Yiddish language was spoken on the streets of Whitechapel. Feast on long forgotten 78 rpm discs that have only recently been unearthed, starring a host of recording artists united for the first time on ‘chai fidelity’ vinyl and CD. Hear the legendary dance band figures of the era like Bert Ambrose and his Orchestra, and Lew Stone and his Monseigneur Band, to the relatively unknown Jewish speciality acts like the Johnny Franks and his Kosher Ragtimers, and Rita Marlowe, the siren of the Yiddish song. And just like the old time Yiddish Theatre where the audience were left with both a smile on their face and a tear in their eye, we can delight in the cheeky street patter of the incomparable slapstick drummer Max Bacon rejoicing in the East Enders love affair with ‘Beigels’, we celebrate the world famous Petticoat Lane street market with not one, but two 1920s fox trots - but also shed a tear with Leo Fuld, the remarkable Dutch Yiddish singer, whose recordings in post-war London were haunting reminders of a way of life decimated by the Holocaust.) 26.00


THE MONKS - Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback DVD (The monks were 5 American GI’s in cold war Germany who billed themselves as the anti-Beatles; they were heavy on feedback, nihilism and electrical banjo. They had strange haircuts, dressed in black, mocked the military and rocked harder than any of their mid-sixties counterparts while managing to basically invent industrial, punk and techno music. The genre-overlapping documentary film not only illustrates the pop music phenomenon in its political, social and cultural historic contexts, but also reveals the monks project as the first marriage between art and popular music and this months before Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground. The five protagonists of the film came to cold war Germany in 1961 as soldiers and left the country in 1967 as avant-garde monks. For more than thirty years they were not able to talk about their strange experience. In the film they recount for the first time their adventure.) 15.00

Thank you for your support in those difficult times

We are also back on the store MONDAY TIL FRIDAY from 11 °° - 19°° and SATURDAY from 11°° - 18°°

Norman & Robert


AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS - comfort me LP (rough trade - Australian pub rock sensations Amyl and The Sniffers follow their acclaimed eponymous debut with ‘Comfort To Me’. The band cast their net wider to haul in influences this time. 1970s rock bands such as AC/DC and Motorhead, hardcore bands such as Warthog and Power Trip and classic Australian bands such as Coloured Balls have fed into this defiant and energetic rock ‘n’ roll statement. ) 25.00

GNOD - Easy to Build, Hard to Destroy LP (rocket - ‘Easy to Build, Hard to Destroy’ by Salford’s uncompromising underground rockers GNOD gathers together loose ends from their early days. The record includes previously-unreleased songs, tracks that were only ever available via MySpace (they're that old) and various other obscurities. These tracks generally started out with the emphasis on jamming, so you can bet they're all sprawling and stuff. Frenetic, psychedelic, heavy, fast and loud) 30.00

HALA STRANA - fielding DLP (Desastre and Worstward Recordings present the first vinyl issue of Hala Strana 's second full-length album "Fielding". Originally released in 2003 on the Jewelled Antler label, "Fielding" is the sprawling, epic leap forward from Hala Strana’s self-titled debut full-length—a psychedelic collage of traditional music, field recordings, and sonic landscapes. Started in 2002, Hala Strana was the summation of Steven R. Smith's interest in the traditional folk music of central and eastern Europe. By incorporating the melodies, scales, and instrumentation of the village music from areas such as Croatia, Hungary, Romania, and Albania, Steven pushed his music into yet another new territory. This marks the first vinyl issue of Fielding, re-mastered and presented as a 2-LP set housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve including all the original liner notes and images from the original 2xCD edition. Limited to 300 copies.) 29.00

JACKSON C. FRANK - s/t LP (Antarctica starts - JACKSON C. FRANK is the highly regarded debut and the only official album he ever released, produced by friend and fellow musician PAUL SIMON in England and released on Columbia Records in 1965. Jackson has been called the most famous folk singer of 1960s that no one has ever heard of and his influence was felt more in England, where his album was a hit, rather than in the U.S., where his record was a commercial failure at the time of its release. His most famous song “Blues Run The Game” has been covered by scores of musicians including Simon and Garfunkel, Counting Crows, Colin Meloy, Bert Jansch, Laura Marling, and Robin Pecknold, while Nick Drake also recorded it privately.) 28.00

JAN JELINEK - The Raw and the Cooked LP (faitiche - Faitiche releases an album version of the radio piece Vom Rohen und Gekochten (The Raw and The Cooked) originally composed and produced by Jan Jelinek for the state broadcaster SWR2. The album The Raw and The Cooked brings together five sound collages that deal with the consistency of material and its mutability. Solid, raw, boiling, powdery, liquid, broken and folded - categories which describe the nature of material. They can also be read in a chronological sequence: solid becomes broken becomes liquid becomes powdery... Material tells of its essence as it drifts through its states, always in correspondence with external energies. The Raw and The Cooked observes the artists Thomas & Renée Rapedius as they design their paper and metal objects and the artist Peter Granser as he ritually prepares Japanese tea, it shatters glass, bends metal and burns wood. The resulting audio documents capture processes of material transformation as sound. The Raw and The Cooked was created with the help of ITO Raum Stuttgart and Thomas & Renée Rapedius. Originally produced for radio broadcast on Südwestrundfunk in 2020 it contains a variation of the collage Zwischen/Raum that was made with funding from Musikfonds. Many thanks to Eckhart Holzboog and Beatrice Theil, as well as Frank Halbig/SWR.) 25.00

KIRK LIGHTSEY AND RUDOLPH JOHNSON WITH THE ALL STARS - Habiba LP (outer - Never released outside South Africa, and out of print even there since its original release in 1974, Outernational Sounds presents one of the most sought-after international jazz exclusives ever to appear on South Africa’s famous Gallo imprint – the funky, spiritual and outward bound Habiba. As the archives of South Africa’s premier record labels steadily give up the treasures that were hidden in the darkness of the apartheid era, the incredible heritage of South African jazz is gradually finding the international audience it always deserved. And while most of the laurels are naturally for South Africa’s own overlooked musicians, the South African discography contains a few sparkling, nearly unknown jazz sessions by visiting players. Habiba is the greatest of them – a raw, impassioned set led by bop pianist Kirk Lightsey, who had been a regular sideman for Chet Baker and Sonny Stitt, and saxophonist Rudolph Johnson, a key player at the storied West Coast indie Black Jazz. Visits to the apartheid state by respected Black musicians were hardly a common occurance during apartheid’s darkest years – so how did a crew of crack American jazz players end up in the Gallo studios? ) 26.00

LOW - hey what LP (sub pop - Not many bands make their most critically acclaimed record twelve albums in but that appears to be what has happened with Duluth trio Low and 2018's 'Double Negative'. Therefore 'HEY WHAT' (their capitals and lack of exclamation mark) is highly anticipated. We are promised layers of distortion and textures with Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker's ever glorious harmonies breaking through the murk. You can always trust these guys to keep coming up with the goods and that old adage about The Fall could as easily apply - always different, always the same. ) 22.00

LLOYD MCNEILL QUARTET - Washington Suite LP (OXBLOOD RED - New edition of this very rare deep spiritual jazz album (currently £400 on Discogs for an original!) first released as a private-press album in 1970 on flautist Lloyd McNeill’s own Asha Record label in Washington, DC. First reissued on Soul Jazz Records’ Universal Sound sub-label in 2011 (long deleted) and now available again. Lloyd McNeill is an African-American flautist, painter, poet, and photographer born in Washington, D.C., in 1935. His multi-disciplinary creative life led to encounters and friendships with Nina Simone, Picasso, Eric Dolphy, Nana Vasconceles and other legendary cultural figures. Lloyd McNeill’s hypnotic ‘Washington Suite’ was originally commissioned as a piece of music for the Capital Ballet Company, in Washington, DC. McNeill grew up through the era of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and his life and work is a reflection of those ideals. In the mid-1960s he moved to France where he became friends with Picasso, working with a number of émigré-jazz musicians whilst living in Paris. In the late 1960s he taught jazz and painting workshops at the New Thing Art and Architecture Center in Washington. In the 1970s he travelled throughout Brazil and West Africa studying music and taught music anthropology in the US. ) 29.00

RUTHANN FRIEDMANN - Hurried Life: Lost Recordings, 1965-1971 LP (Tomkins square - ‘Hurried Life: Lost Recordings, 1965-1971’ is a compilation showcasing the work of American songwriter Ruthann Friedman, a cult hero to 21st century folk artists like Devendra Banhart. She’s perhaps best known for writing The Association’s 1967 folk-pop hit ‘Windy’, but this collection of demos, home recordings and assorted archive material demonstrates a very different sound, more in common with the Laurel Canyon sound.) 29.00

THE SOUND - Jeopardy LP (1972 - 2021 Repress, incl. insert - Formed in 1979 and fronted by the mercurial and troubled Adrian Borland (he would commit suicide in 1999 after years of battling depression), The Sound are one of the most unjustly neglected band of the ’80s. They may not be as well-known as their contemporaries Echo & the Bunnymen or Joy Division, but their contributions to the first wave of English post-punk are equally unique and influential. Fed up with its simplistic structure and rote posturing, Borland cut ties to the punk movement after fronting ’77-era group The Outsiders. Not unlike Magazine’s Howard Devoto, whose similar inclinations led to his leaving The Buzzcocks, Borland wanted to create a sound that relied more on atmospheres, tensions and instrumental interplay while harnessing the urgency of punk’s spirit. With the release of Jeopardy, The Sound turns this inspiration into a nearly perfect debut. Featuring rough-edged production fitting its £800 recording budget, Jeopardy is a caustic rush, full of songs with hooks and emotional impact that never resort to histrionics. The album’s opener starts off minimally, until the nervy guitars of the chorus rip through the song. This auspicious beginning only hints at what’s to come. Every song that follows builds on the momentum of a complex pop masterpiece. Borland’s lyrics also prove him to be one of the few post-punk songwriters whose words are worth poring over and analyzing. The album received extremely positive reviews, with NME, Sounds and Melody Maker all bestowing their highest ratings, and influential British DJ John Peel welcomed the band into the studio to record a session. All of the critical praise heaped on the band makes it hard to explain why The Sound never rose to the prominence of the two bands to whom they received the most comparisons—but one only need to listen to Jeopardy to hear Borland’s perfect combination of Joy Division’s dark, tortured angst and Echo & the Bunnymen’s accessible glam/art-rock fusion.) 25.00

THE SOUND - From The Lions Mouth LP (1972 - For The Sound’s sophomore LP, the group decided to work with producer Hugh Jones (Echo & the Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, Bauhaus). The resulting album is more richly layered than their debut, fusing the band’s atmospheric, affecting sound with a set of accessible yet invigorating songs. At the time, From the Lion’s Mouth gained great marks from the British music press, but did not break the band beyond its devoted cult of fans. Now it is considered a post-punk classic. A relatively restrained but vital follow-up to the charged and ragged Jeopardy, From The Lions Mouth proves that The Sound’s critical stature among the post-punk elite was no fluke. A more robust recording budget allows them to explore a fuller, more cohesive sound, while Adrian Borland’s lyrics are even more introspective (a jarring turn after the often political bent of Jeopardy). However despondent the singer’s words became, the tone, as pointed out in the original NME review of the album, never descend into “pessimistic wallowing.” Tracks like “Sense of Purpose” and “Contact the Fact” still feature a sweeping urgency and highlight the tension between Borland’s grim worldview and his knack for a hook. The bleak nature of the lyrics would be the first true displays of Borland’s mercurial nature. While he waged a tragically losing battle with depression for the rest of his life, it’s hard not to view this album as an enduring and fascinating document of the beginnings of madness.) 25.00

TAMAR APHEK - all bets are off LP (exec - ORANGE VINYL Formerly the guitarist with Carusella and Shoshana, Israeli artist Tamar Aphek created her debut album with The War On Drugs/DIIV producer Daniel Schett. Embracing quietness and atmosphere as much as the noisy carnage with which she’s previously been associated, ‘All Bets Are Off’ is a diverse first solo outing from Aphek.) 24.00

UNWOUND - Repetition LP (col. vinyl) (numero - Dead-eyed post-punk from Olympia’s reigning noise-niks. Repetition rejects the major label signing spree of the mid-’90s entirely, training its hulking focus on haircut hardcore, white belt Jiujitsu, and frenzied feedback. The soundtrack to a fantasy Halloween candy heist, now on vinyl for the first time since 1996.) 26.00

UNWOUND - Challenge For a Civilized Society LP (numero - Unwound’s paranoid and pulsating sixth album, Challenge For a Civilized Society explores the pre-Y2K technological dread of modern punk living. Producer Steve Fisk threads Justin Trosper’s stabbing, discordant guitar in and around Sara Lund’s consolidated drum attack and Vern Rumsey’s relentless, throbbing bass. A vicious and sinister penultimate LP from the ’90s most misunderstood band.) 26.00

WALTER SMETAK - smetak LP (buh - HIGHLIGHTS An emblematic figure of the Brazilian avant-garde and a key part of the cultural climate that made the rise of tropicália possible, Walter Smetak was a Swiss musician and inventor of instruments who developed his career in Brazil. "Smetak" (1974), his debut album, was produced by Caetano Veloso and Roberto Santana, and had the support of Gilberto Gil. It sums up a personal universe that combines Afro-Brazilian ritual traditions, theosophy, microtonal studies, collective improvisation and the use of unconventional musical instruments. Liner notes by Caetano Veloso. DESCRIPTION Walter Smetak was a Swiss cellist, composer, inventor of musical instruments, sculptor and writer who developed his career in Salvador, Brazil, and became an emblematic figure of the Bahian avant-garde and a key part of the cultural climate that made the rise of tropicália possible. Since 1969, he has carried out various workshops of experimental music at University of Bahia. His music was materialized in two albums: "Smetak" (1974) and "Interregno" (1980). "Smetak" was produced by Caetano Veloso and Roberto Santana, with the support of Gilberto Gil. There he unfolded a radical sound universe, based on the investigation of Afro-Brazilian ritualistic traditions, microtonality studies and collective improvisational open processes, always under the influence of theosophy, which he discovered in Brazil, and which allowed him to generate a symbolism represented in the construction of his own unconventional instruments, many of them of a sculptural nature, made with unusual materials such as PVC pipes, pumpkins and polystyrene foam, which he called plásticas sonoras. Around 150 instruments were created by Smetak, many of them in a surrealist style. They have been exhibited on various occasions in museums and galleries. His music was often based on graphic scores, many of them of great beauty. In addition to Smetak, Caetano Veloso and Roberto Santana, musicians such as Gereba, Tuzé Abreu, Djalma Correa, Capenga, among others, participated in the recording of this album. The author of one of the most important studies on Smetak, Marco Scarassatti, has written on the work of the Swiss-Brazilian artist: "His original and metaphysical work goes beyond any mysticism created around his figure. He investigated the relationship between sound and light, space and form, microtonality, collective improvisation, as a sound alchemist, a multimedia and unplugged prophet-visionary. While transforming matter, Smetak transformed himself and many of those around him." This reissue reproduces the much sought after original 1974 edition, published by Phillips. It includes the catalog of instruments used, adds a brochure with new photos and presents the remastered audio. The liner notes were written by Caetano Veloso. This project is part of Incidencias Sonoras: COINCIDENCIA experimental music & sound art platform, by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.) 38.00

WHISPERING SONS - several others LP (Pias - ‘Several Others’ is the second LP by Whispering Sons. ‘Several Others’ is an LP of propulsive post punk driven by synths and choppy guitars. If you ever wondered what New Order would sound like if Ian Curtis was around to front them, then the lead single ‘Surface’ may provide the answer. ) 25.00

WHISPERING SONS - endless party LP (WOOL E - Whispering Sons is a Belgian post-punk/new wave band. The group's very atmospheric sound is dark and ominous and breathes desperation and nervosity.) 20.00

V/A - Eccentric Disco LP (numero - Ten independent and private press, dance floor ready dive bombers from disco’s all-to-brief heyday, previously swept under rug by the whitewashed glitz and glam of the era.

Norman & Robert


SZMEJ - s/t 7“ (stoned to death - Szmej is one of many alter egos of Mira, multidisciplinary self taught artist and musician who evokes the spirit of true diy punk sketchbook art and euphoric bedroom recordings. His artist egos are somewhere between cosmic punk, black metal hermit and guitar pop romantic, while Szmej usually represents his hardcore punk persona. This EP however mixes the first two, so if you are up to it, here is your freshest feeding of rough blackened cosmic punk.) 10.00


KURVY CESI - We Are Family 10“ (stoned to death - Kurvy Češi is a punk band from Czech Rep. and plays very Nomeansno-like music.) 16.00


ALBEDO GRAVITAS - Eihwaz LP (an archives - Albedo Gravitas is an extension of Albedo Fantastica (released on An’archives in 2018), the duo of Keiko Higuchi and Sachiko (Kousokuya, Overhang Party, Vava Kitora). Both of them are well known names to those who are evolving in the Japanese underground waters since each has been involved in many projects and each has a consisting discography on labels as Musik Atlach, Improvising Beings, Utech. Their respective backgrounds are maybe a little bit different but they share a common interest in different genres from jazz and rock to free improvisation and have collaborated with a cast of various musicians in the likes of Cris X, Fukuoka Rinji, Kawaguchi Masami, Shin-Ichiro Kanda… For Albedo Gravitas, Shizuo Uchida joins on bass. A peripatetic member of the Japanese underground, having played with groups such as Nord, Onna-Kodomo, Hasegawa-Shizuo, Kito Mizukumi Rouber and Keiji Haino’s Nijiumu, he most recently turned up on An’archives as one half of UH, alongside sax player Takayuki Hashimoto (of KMR and .es). While this is Albedo Gravitas’s first album, they play together with intelligence and sensitivity, but also with a strong capacity for the unexpected; there are many moments here where you’re wrong-footed, caught askance by the way the music comes together, and comes apart.) 34.00

ANNEA LOCKWOOD - Becoming Air / Into The Vanishing Point LP (black truffle - Following on from the acclaimed Tiger Balm / Amazonia Dreaming / Immersion LP (BT028), Black Truffle is thrilled to present two major new instrumental works from legendary sound artist and experimental composer Annea Lockwood. Demonstrating the ever evolving and radically open nature of Lockwood’s practice, these two recent works were developed in close collaboration with their performers. ‘Becoming Air’ (2018), developed with and performed by trumpeter Nate Wooley, uses extended technique and electronics to interfere with Wooley’s virtuosic control over his instrument, pushing him into areas of fluctuating pitch and timbral instability. Motivated by a desire for ‘the letting go of sound to be itself’, ‘Becoming Air’ unfolds as a series of texturally distinct moments separated by pauses, each fixing on a particular approach to the instrument (long tones, upper-register whistles, breathy wooshes) and maintaining it in an essentially static fashion, focussing our attention on subtle changes and variations. Dipping into near-inaudibility in the fragile high tones of its opening section, the piece dramatically increases in volume and intensity in its final third, climaxing with a passage of roaring distortion, where the interaction between feedback and trumpet pitches calls up the shuddering interference effects of Robert Ashley’s Wolfman. ) 27.00

GHOST PONY - ghost pony LP (Ghost Pony is a German band located in Berlin. The trio plays their own mix of Garage and Surf with dreamy melodies labelled as Mud Pop. Their songs are defined by swampy guitar riffs and a dark voice that sounds like a distant cave echo.) 23.00

KIRK LIGHTSEY AND RUDOLPH JOHNSON WITH THE ALL STARS - Habiba LP (outer - Never released outside South Africa, and out of print even there since its original release in 1974, Outernational Sounds presents one of the most sought-after international jazz exclusives ever to appear on South Africa’s famous Gallo imprint – the funky, spiritual and outward bound Habiba. As the archives of South Africa’s premier record labels steadily give up the treasures that were hidden in the darkness of the apartheid era, the incredible heritage of South African jazz is gradually finding the international audience it always deserved. And while most of the laurels are naturally for South Africa’s own overlooked musicians, the South African discography contains a few sparkling, nearly unknown jazz sessions by visiting players. Habiba is the greatest of them – a raw, impassioned set led by bop pianist Kirk Lightsey, who had been a regular sideman for Chet Baker and Sonny Stitt, and saxophonist Rudolph Johnson, a key player at the storied West Coast indie Black Jazz. Visits to the apartheid state by respected Black musicians were hardly a common occurance during apartheid’s darkest years – so how did a crew of crack American jazz players end up in the Gallo studios? ) 26.00

LSD MARCH - The Night LP (an archives - LSD March are a psychedelic rock band from Himeji in Japan. The band’s two main main members, guitarist and singer Shinsuke Michishita and drummer Ikuro Takahashi, are well-known on the city’s underground circuit. 'The Night' was originally relased in 2008. Their music draws comparisons to fellow Japanese band Les Rallizes Denudes - swathes of distortion/quietness and dejected vocals.) 34.00

MAXIMUM JOY - Station M.X.J.Y. LP (1972 - A focal point for the unique punk-funk that was coming together in Bristol as the bridge from the ’70s to the ’80s arrived, Maximum Joy was formed by Glaxo Babies multi-instrumentalist Tony Wrafter and 18 year-old vocalist Janine Rainforth. Soon they drafted in additional Glaxo Babies in the form of drummer Charlie Llewellin and bassist Dan Catsis, along with guitarist John Waddington, fresh from The Pop Group. The group set about making a one-of-a-kind mix of funk, punk, pop, jazz, dub, soul, afrobeat and reggae; creating a brilliant burst of danceable tunes wrapped around elastic basslines and complex percussion, punctuated by melodic horns and stabs of guitar, all of it highlighting Rainforth’s naturally enthusiastic vocal style. They immediately took their place on the rosters of influential labels like Y and 99 with iconic debut single “Stretch”, as the band had clearly captured something special.) 25.00

MICHEL PORTAL - Alors !!! LP (souffle - Could the missing link between Eric Dolphy and Albert Ayler be the Michel Portal of 1970? After having worked alongside François Tusques defending a free jazz “made in France”, we find him here, heading up an international quintet of which each member is on fire: John Surman, Barre Phillips, Stu Martin and Jean-Pierre Drouet. The quintet had full leeway to break out the free-form in long ambient tracks to compose this Alors!!! which leaves listeners with just one word to say: More! Do we still need to present Michel Portal?... Clarinetist destined for the classical and contemporary world after his passage in the Paris Conservatory, he decided to try his hand at jazz, with an incendiary flamboyance! After his first experience with André Hodeir and Pierre Michelot, he would break all the codes with François Tusques (Free Jazz, in 1965) before starting the emblematic Michel Portal Unit. It is the Portal of those years that Alors!!! offers us the chance to listen to again.“There are periods of insolence”, the musician declared and the year 1970 was one all on its own. Heading up an impetuous international troupe, a quintet consisting of John Surman (saxophones, bass clarinet), Barre Phillips (double-bass), Stu Martin (drums) and Jean-Pierre Drouet (percussion), Portal moves from alto sax to clarinet in the compositions shared with his partners.) 26.00

MONO - Pilgrimage of the Soul DLP (pelagic - Pilgrimage of the Soul is the 11th studio album in the 22-year career of Japanese experimental rock legends, MONO. Recorded and mixed – cautiously, anxiously, yet optimistically – during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the summer of 2020, Pilgrimage of the Soul is aptly named as it not only represents the peaks and valleys where MONO are now as they enter their third decade, but also charts their long, steady journey to this time and place. Continuing the subtle but profound creative progression in the MONO canon that began with Nowhere Now Here (2019), Pilgrimage of the Soul is the most dynamic MONO album to date (and that’s saying a lot). But where MONO’s foundation was built on the well-established interplay of whisper quiet and devastatingly loud, Pilgrimage of the Soul crafts its magic with mesmerizing new electronic instrumentation and textures, and – perhaps most notably – faster tempos that are clearly influenced by disco and techno. It all galvanizes as the most unexpected MONO album to date – replete with surprises and as awash in splendor as anything this band has ever done. ) 28.00

SEAM - Headsparks LP (numero - In the wake of Bitch Magnet and current of Superchunk, Sooyoung Park and Mac McCaughan formed a raw version of Seam in the summer of ’91. With bassist Lexi Mitchell, the trio banged out an album and two singles worth of shambolic dream pop in the sweltering Chapel Hill heat. Ten songs of talk-whispered vocals, sloshing guitar solos, scattered snare rolls, Velocity Girl’s Sarah Shannon, and the original version of Codeine’s slowcore classic "New Year’s," on LP for the first time in 30 years. Even though the first Bitch Magnet album came out only a couple years before the first Superchunk album, when Sooyoung Park and his then-girlfriend Lexi Mitchell relocated to Chapel Hill in 1991, it was a little like a seasoned rock star had moved to town. I lived in a tiny rental house on McDade Street, and as Superchunk practiced in the kitchen we had drums set up semi-permanently. I was not—nor have I ever been—a great drummer. Any learning I had came from one of my musical heroes, Let’s Active’s Sara Romweber, but really, I had more enthusiasm than skills and I'm not sure how that qualified me to be in Seam. At the time being in bands was more about “making stuff” —songs, tapes, records, fliers, shows—than being professional. It seemed as though Lexi and Sooyoung had already been working on some songs together and I was excited about being in a band with new people and not having to sing. It was such a no pressure situation that it felt like we were hanging out and maybe playing music when we felt like it, but Sooyoung definitely had a blueprint for what he wanted his new band to sound like.) 27.00

SARAH DAVACHI - Antiphonals LP (late - Chock full of humid, resonant soundscapes that bend time and emphasize texture, tone and timbre, Sarah Davachi's latest is her most defining and rewarding full-length to date. We're floored, again - there's nobody else doing it quite like this. Composed using a Mellotron, electric organ, piano and synthesizers, "Antiphonals" takes all the elements we know and love from Davachi's impressive catalogue to date and refines them into eight tracks of expertly-sculpted deep listening stickiness. If you're familiar with her work, the content won't be surprising, but Davachi's dedication to her craft has resulted in music that feels more and more revelatory each time. Here, she brings her obsession with the tonal and textural character of early music to the fore, playing confidently with sounds that exist two or three steps from the contemporary sonic spectrum. Her favored outpost is a cocoon of soft-focus resonance, where sounds graze lightly and hypnotize rather than scrape or bruise. It's not background music - this is art that requires attention and understanding to appreciate its layered beauty and subtle complexity.) 28.00

SOFA - Source Crossfire DLP (constellation - A searing, brooding collection documenting the recorded output of one of Montreal's most shadowy, notorious, captivating underground art-rock ensembles of the mid-90s (and the first band to be released on renowned indie label Constellation). In the words of one music writer of the era: “Like Slint and Big Black meeting for a Joy Division reunion.” Source Crossfire rounds up the quartet’s 1997 album Grey (originally released on CD only) along with selections from two prior self-released cassettes, charting Sofa’s febrile evolution through the sonic palettes of North American post-hardcore and slowcore admixed with early UK post-punk, goth and dark lounge. LP1 re-imagines Grey, newly sequenced to create distinct loud/fast and soft/slow vinyl sides. LP2 mirrors this, with four tracks of intense pitch-black material on Side One and three early examples of Sofa’s sombre balladry on Side Two, culled from the band’s 1995 cassette material. All remastered by Jace Lasek (Breakglass), Harris Newman (Greymarket) and Ian Ilavsky (Constellation). All new artwork by visual artist (and Sofa vocalist) Brad Todd. ) 30.00

TED CURSON - Pop Wine LP (souffle - Originally from Philadelphia, invited to New York by Miles Davis, playing at Antibes in 1960 with Charles Mingus and Eric Dolphy, here is trumpeter Ted Curson in 1971… in Paris. With him, a legendary trio: Georges Arvanitas (piano), Jacky Samson (double bass) and Charles Saudrais (drums). A new transatlantic alliance in the service of jazz of all kinds: classic, modal, fusion and even free… Pop Wine is – between Coltrane and Miles with a nod to roots in the club the Caveau de la Huchette – an explosive cocktail but which leaves no stains! In 1960, trumpeter Ted Curson played with Charles Mingus and Eric Dolphy on stage at the Antibes jazz festival. Eleven years later he was in Paris to record one of the gems of his discography, with a hard-hitting French trio: Georges Arvanitas (piano), Jacky Samson (double bass) and Charles Saudrais (drums). Arvanitas was also someone who had travelled widely. Originally from Marseille, he had accompanied visiting American musicians in Paris before moving to the States. It was when he came back that the charismatic trio was created with Samson and Saudrais and who recorded, in 1970 on Futura, the unforgettable In Concert and then, the following year, Pop Wine with Ted Curson.)

TRUE FIR - Second Guessing LP (stoned to death - Jan Stejskal had a long history with loud rock band Goro where he played guitar and wrote most of the music for years. They were the second generation of czech post-revolution underground musicians and they have taken small local scene by surprise with their hardcore punk energy, chaotic live shows and back in early 2000's they have added extra controversy since their singer was a Hussit priest. That was not taken lightly by back then somewhat rigid hard/core punk scene. Early 2000's were certainly a pretty dark era to do some non-typical rock music. Local bands had to squeeze their ways into local rock bars and clubs where owners cared little to less about everything that did not sound like Judas Priest Revival. You did not need more than two hands to count open minded diy spots where bands would not be harassed on their way in and out. After years on the road the fire just went out and Jan put his guitar gear in the corner. ) 18.00

UNWOUND - Challenge For a Civilized Society LP (numero - Unwound’s paranoid and pulsating sixth album, Challenge For a Civilized Society explores the pre-Y2K technological dread of modern punk living. Producer Steve Fisk threads Justin Trosper’s stabbing, discordant guitar in and around Sara Lund’s consolidated drum attack and Vern Rumsey’s relentless, throbbing bass. A vicious and sinister penultimate LP from the ’90s most misunderstood band.) 25.00

V/A - Eccentric Disco LP (numero - Ten independent and private press, dance floor ready dive bombers from disco’s all-to-brief heyday, previously swept under rug by the whitewashed glitz and glam of the era. Chugging grooves, bubbling synths, soaring strings, and sonorous voices are guaranteed to light up your night, on living room rugs and dance floors alike.) 26.00

V/A - Ethiopian Hit Parade Vol.2 LP (heavenly - Following the 2016 release of "Ethiopian hit parade vol.1", Francis Falceto, founder of the Ethiopian series and Heavenly Sweetness continue their work of reissuing the Ethiopian hit parade series on vinyl. After releasing about fifty singles and his first LP (Ethiopian Modern Instrumental Hits AELP 10), the late Amha Eshèté, who passed away this year, undertook in 1972 to collect his best productions released on singles in a series of albums that have become mythical (and unobtainable in original). The first four volumes of Ethiopian Hit Parade were released in September and October 1972, and the fifth in January 1973. The one you have in your hands is volume 2. ) 25.00

V/A - Respect the unexpected -in the age of sci-fi LP + CD (kasha plastic - It’s a soundtrack homage to the 80's science fiction b-movie scene. composed by contemporary artists. The Compilation Includes 12 artists and 19 tracks on vinyl and cd. The Sleeves are DIY screen printed and the jacket is built out of wire fence.) 33.00

V/A - Ellas Son Eléctricas - Mujeres En El Underground Metálico Español (82-91) LP (beat generation - Shining a light on women's role in the late 70's and 80's Hard Rock scene in Spain, »Ellas son Eléctricas« comes filled to the rafters with kick ass Spanish Metal, Hard Rock, AOR or Thrash, reviewing the story of unfairly ignored ladies of Spanish Metal. Most of these songs see a vinyl release for the very first time (only Malena y Belcebu's song had previously been released), coming straight from obscure demos. Comes with an extensive 32 pages booklet with plenty of photos, reviews, bios and other awesome shit.) 27.00

V/A - The Harmonic Series II - Curated by Duane Pitre 3LP (important - A collection of long-form works in just intonation by Kali Malone, Duane Pitre, Catherine Lamb, Tashi Wada, Byron Westbrook, and Caterina Barbieri. Mastered by Stephan Mathieu, cut at Golden Mastering & pressed at RTI for maximum fidelity. Packaged in a heavy duty 3LP single pocket sleeve with printed inner sleeves.) 47.00

WHISPERING SONS - several others LP (PIAS - ‘Several Others’ is the second LP by Whispering Sons. ‘Several Others’ is an LP of propulsive post punk driven by synths and choppy guitars. If you ever wondered what New Order would sound like if Ian Curtis was around to front them, then the lead single ‘Surface’ may provide the answer. ) 25.00

ZULU - Zulu LP (vampisoul - One of the last great albums of the first wave of Peruvian rock, originally released in 1974, linking psych-tinged rock with Afro-Latin American beats and folk pop. This first record by (former Traffic Sound and Los Nuevos Shain’s member) Zulu was also his last and one of the most enigmatic albums released in Peru in the ‘70s, as the artist vanished into the religious path, making sure his music got as unnoticed as possible... Reissued for the first time with the collaboration of Zulu, including extensive liner notes and one extra track.) 25.00


ML - Looted Lagoons CD (kashual plastik - Everything makes me dream… Id comes to life achromatic, briefly thoroughly illuminated by light. Instantly colors leak from above and slowly darkness covers the spreadsheet with all that many allegorical, symbolic, mystic shades. Noble, good, useful, mean, unnecessary, common, and beautiful. Mélancolies du voyage, floating in an ocean of mixed ratios.) 16.00


BEIGE BANQUET - s/t TAPE (mangel - London post-punk group Beige Banquet have a new EP. The self-titled 4-track EP is available on 10″ from their own label Just Step Sideways, or on cassette from Mangel in Berlin. Will remind you of Canadian group N0V3L or Pigeon from Germany. The record comes in a really nice sleeve designed by Robin Roche. -Record Turnover-) 7.00

NEIN RODERE– For Unprepared Voice and Guitar TAPE (horn of plenty - Four track C20 with riso printed J-card and unique, hand drawn and signed insert. Very limited C20 featuring new work from the brilliant David ‘Nein’ Rodere. If you were lucky enough to have picked up his previous tapes you’ll know why I’m so excited to be releasing this! Top-notch lopsided, contemporary art music in the tradition of Dominik Steiger, Anton Heyboer, Kai Althoff, et al… but delivered with a unique sense of melody and texture. At the time of recording David had reworked his previous tapes into a (forthcoming) Horn of Plenty LP and hit a quiet patch;) 8.00

OSTSEETRAUM - Das Gute Leben Ist Schlecht TAPE (mangel - Second CS by Ostseetraum - Das Gute Leben ist Schlecht- 10 minimal wave songs about sinking, getting moldy, holding on, people hiding in empty caged spaces, about empty heads, about volcanoes, about tasty pheasants, about desolate urban areas and about the sadness because a loving person is on a big tour.) 7.00
XIU XIU - Oh No TAPE (stoned to death - This album is a collection of 15 killer duets and collaboration with the likes of Haley Fohr, Fabrizio Modenese Palumbo, Chelsea Wolfe or Liz Harris. Xiu Xiu is one of the hardest working bands of this century. Oh No is their 15th studio album (and we don't count all the collaborations such as XXL, boxes of seven inches, eps, experimental outputs etc.). They are always on the sharp edge, radical, pushing the sound to the limit, bringing the listener to new mysterious harsh realms of real life through their thoughtful and quite often genius lyrics. They have never relented, always discovering the possibilities of new ways in music, quite often working in diy studio conditions, but still delivering earblowing results. OH NO has all the Xiu Xiu's trademarks like the unique stewart-esque guitar play, desperate but beautiful vocals, tone that moves between gentle and still to unrest madness, wrapped around with waves of experimental electronics, avantgarde music and music concrete, but it's yet and again punching listener right into his face and not letting him to stop paying attention for a second.) 10.00

OTTAVEN - A Pleasure of Losing TAPE (stoned to death - About twenty years ago my friend Michal released an split album for With Love and czech based noise band Climatizado. He did it on his short lived label Chierra records (which he threatens to resuscita at any moment). Michal also runs his own festival called Fluff Fest and he would frequently ask With Love to play. When With Love was no more, Giovanni would come with screen print shop and sell fashionable shirts he printed and sew. Occasionally he would play with Ottaven, his experimental electronic music output. My part at the Fluff Festival was to curate stage called Psych tent. One year, maybe in 2018, i had Giovanni perform with Ottaven. He played stellar set in the middle of the field, all in front of the loud PA and it was positively great. When his set was over, the soundguy Tosper played some backing music through the PA. That night he selected album The End from Nico. The last song on The End is Nico's adaptation of german national anthem called “Das Lied Der Deutchen”, dedicated to Andreas Baader from Red Army Fraction. Playing this song over super loud PA was not the greatest idea, because the second it was heard by german hardcore dude who happened just walk by, all hell breaks loose. He got confused and thought its Giovanni playing the music. Which he was not, but he still jumped him and tried to mess with his cables at no positive result, Giovanni was already packing his gear, unplugged, but the “Das Lied Der Deutchen” is still loud and clear in the PA. Later on the hardcore dude insisted that the whoevers iPod it was that has this song on must be destroyed immediately. ) 9.00

PAULINE OLIVEROS & GUY KLUCEVSEK - Sounding / Way TAPE (important - Pauline Oliveros and Guy Klucevsek's "Sounding / Way" was originally released on cassette in 1986 and has been out of print ever since. The Sounding / Way concept was simple. Each artist would write a piece for two accordions and then they would perform them together. Thus, side A contains Guy Klucevsek's Tremolo No. 6 performed by Guy Klucevsek and Pauline Oliveros. Side B contains Pauline's composition The Tuning Meditation, also performed by both Pauline and Guy. This is the second release in an on-going effort between Important Records and the Pauline Oliveros Trust to maintain and promote the music, philosophy and legacy of Pauline Oliveros. Guy Klucevsek is one of the world’s most versatile and highly-respected accordionists. He has performed and/or recorded with Laurie Anderson, Bang On a Can, Brave Combo, Anthony Braxton, Anthony Coleman, Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, Rahim al Haj, Robin Holcomb, Kepa Junkera, the Kronos Quartet, Natalie Merchant, Present Music, Relâche, Zeitgeist, and John Zorn.) 16.00

PAULINE OLIVEROS - Tara's Room TAPE (important - Originally released on cassette in 1987 following the 1986 release of "Sounding / Way" with Guy Klucevsek. "Both pieces are intended to aid the listener in times of spiritual change, but are just fine for 'everyday' use as well. Highly recommended." Charles S. Russell, Ear Magazine - This tape features two long sides of infinite depth and sensitivity. Oliveros performs these pieces using a Just Intonation accordion and her Expanded Instrument System in order to bend both time and pitch. Pauline Oliveros, composer, performer and humanitarian is an important pioneer in American Music. Acclaimed internationally, for four decades she has explored sound - forging new ground for herself and others. Through improvisation, electronic music, ritual, teaching and meditation she has created a body of work with such breadth of vision that it profoundly effects those who experience it, and eludes many who try to write about it. Oliveros has been honored with awards, grants and concerts internationally. Whether performing at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., in an underground cavern, or in the studios of West German Radio, Oliveros' commitment to interaction with the moment is unchanged. She can make the sound of a sweeping siren into another instrument of the ensemble.) 16.00

SAITO KOJI - Improvisations TAPE (stoned to death - Collection of improvised and compositional pieces by Fukushima-based guitar player Saito Koji.Saito Koji uses guitars, keyboards, effects and field recordings to create minimal sound collages and improvisations.) 9.00

SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN - Covered In Mud TAPE (stoned to death - Sunburned Hand of the Man are a band from Boston, Massachusetts that formed in 1994 as the Boston psychedelic punk trio Shit Spangled Banner. They developed and changed their name in 1996 to reflect the new vibes and members.) 9.00

XIU XIU - Unclouded Sky TAPE (stoned to death .- I have an entwined relationship with North American religious folk music. My father and uncle were both musicians and part of the Folk Revival movement of the early 1960s. The songs on this tape would have been songs that influenced them and their peers, some of which were songs they themselves sung. My parents raised me to be a religious person but luckily did not do so in a way that was punitive nor used as a means of control. It was presented as a refuge that was open, flexible and a path of love and forgiveness. They were both literally insane and this was their way of trying to give me some stability as a young person. Because I had a good experience with religion in its loosest forms it is something that has continued to part of my life, although a very private one aside from these notes I suppose? It is not for everyone of course and thankfully there are as many ways to be a person as there are people. ) 10.00
