NEW ARRIVALS

ARTWOODS- ART GALLERY (1965 ultra cult mod/r'n'b)-Label:TOP SOUNDS Amazing! Here's a release of splendid, recently unearthed (and thus previously unissued) BBC radio sessions of London's ultra cult mod/r'n'b-band The Artwoods! Taped in 1965 and '66, the recordings feature the classic line-up of Art Wood (Ron's elder brother), Derek Griffiths, Malcolm Pool, Keef Hartley and future Deep Purple-organist Jon Lord.

ASTRAL SON - Mind’s Eye (Cosmic Dutch neo-psych ) Label:SULATRON The third album by Dutch neo-psych solo-artist Astral Son once again is full of cosmic soundscapes, progressing into psychedelic tracks with plenty of far-out elements. 'Minds Eye' basically sounds like a logical continuation of Astral Son's previous album 'Silver Moon' and is arguably (even) better! If you enjoyed this space cadet's first two excursions, you'll definitely love 'Mind's Eye CD $16 SKU:21564

CIRCUS (SWITZERLAND) -MOVIN' ON (RARE acid drenched 1977)Label:BIG PINK Reissued on CD, this is a killer prog album from Switzerland, originally released in 1977. This title is recommended to fans of f.i. Jethro Tull, King Crimson and VDGG. CD $22 SKU:21531

COBRA FAMILY PICNIC -MAGNETIC ANOMALY (Tucson, blissed-out psych) Label:SULATRON Spanning 40 odd minutes, Tucson, Arizona's Cobra Family Picnic creates a fuzzy, blissed-out haze that touches on an entire encyclopedia of underground psychedelia. There are traces of the trance indulging Suicide, the post-Velvets go-go freakout of Les Rallizes Denudes, the smoky snake-song of early Doors, the pulsating locked grooves of Neu, and much, much moreCD $15 SKU:21566

DAY,GRAHAM & THE FOREFATHERS-GOOD THINGS (Medway garage-rock)Label:DAMAGED GOODS Reissue of the 2014 'almost live' collection of greatest hits and misses from more than thirty years of the Graham Day songbook - with three extra tracks. Out of print since 2015. The crucial ingredients of The Prisoners, Prime Movers, Solarflares and The Gaolers extracted and squeezed into one stripped down power trio... Graham Day, Allan Crockford and Wolf Howard have been intermittently blasting out their muscular version of Medway garage-rock in various combinations and guises over a period of more than 30 years, releasing dozens of albums between them. Graham and Allan were in The Prisoners (82-86), before forming The Prime Movers with Wolf in 1988, releasing 3 albums before they split in 1993. The trio were re-united in 1999 as the Solarflares, releasing another 5 albums until once again calling it a day in 2004. They also found time to play in various pairings over that period in the original line-up of The James Taylor Quartet and Goodchilde (Allan and Wolf), and Billy Childish's Buff Medways (Graham and Wolf). These days Graham and Wolf also play cinematic instrumentals in The Senior Service, and Allan leads psych-popsters The Galileo 7 (both bands also on Damaged Goods). The three re-united as a live band in 2013. The Forefathers formed around the idea that the time was right for rifling through the Graham Day Songbook and delivering a 'best of...' set: stripped down live versions of the best of The Prisoners, The Prime Movers, The Solarflares and Graham's most recent band, The Gaolers. CD $14 SKU:21496

The songs on COMMON GROUND are pure pop, good melodies and excellent vocal harmonies CD $5 SKU:21547

GUNSMOKE - VOL 3 &4 ( oddball country weepers, moody rockabilly tunes and popcorn noir from the 50s and 60s)Label:STAG-O-LEE (GERMANY) The tracks from the second two vinyl 10-inches on one compact disc.

IVORY ELEPHANT - Stoneface(heavy blues Hendrix style) Label:KOZMIK ARTIFACT Scraping out of the grit of Brunswick (Melbourne, Australia), The Ivory Elephant are a three-piece playing heavy blues. Joining the blues/rock renaissance of bands such as The Black Keys and The White Stripes, and with a sound often likened to Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, The Ivory Elephant bring their own thing to the style. On this album the band really gets deep in to psych. The blues is still in there, but it's hidden behind a lot of fuzz and reverb CD $15 SKU:21558

KINGS OF HONG KONG-PRIMITIVE(Driving,rockabilly garage punk) ORANGE Label:TRASH WAX Driving, rockabilly influenced garage punk. "Like being hit by a steamroller at 100mph." ~Moffo Magazine. Probably one of the best 'trash' bands out there today and like all the classic trash bands (Vibes, Sting Rays et al) of the early/mid '80s they've a double bass player showing their rockin' influences without being a 'billy' band. This LP just hits you right between the eyes, the perfect mix of garage punk and psycho influenced rockabilly with a touch of punk to keep it dirty enough. Limited to 150 copies on orange vinyl LP $22 SKU:21523

LONDON UNDERGROUND-FOUR (acid-rock early Floyd style) Label:MUSEA As its name suggests, this contemporary band from Italy is heavily influenced by London's late '60s psychedelic underground scene, which existed in venues s.a. the UFO Club and Middle Earth. This instrumental album, obviously the band's fourth full-length, is full of Hammond organ, Mellotron and Moog sounds. 'Four' is recommended to anyone into acid-rock, psychedelia and progressive rock, especially fans of Atomic Rooster, early Pink Floyd and Gong CD $17 SKU:21559

SENDELICA -CROMLECH CHRONICLES IV (The Door into Summer (Welsh psych rockers!)Label:FRG Sendelica's annual pilgrimage to Mwnci Studio in 2018 resulted in a full on musical head collision of West Wales with the West coast of USA. Not so much down the rabbit hole but more of a trip through the door into summer of USA West Coast circa 66-70. A door of perception into the jamming delights of Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Blue Cheer, Iron Butterfly and The Byrds at the heights of their improvisational prowess. Although these bands were quite adept at writing 'hit pop songs', it is their live alchemy that is drawn into the ever evolving brewing pot of Sendelica, disjunctive song structures, key and time changes, modal melodies, and drones that entwine and evolve into a magical musical journey. Tune in, turn on, turn down the lights, indulge in whatever tickles your fancy and let the odyssey of 'Cromlech IV' engulf your senses. Limited to 200 copies in gatefold sleev CD $18 SKU:21544

SHOCKWAVES-NO WAY IN,NO WAY OUT (1987 garage trash) Label:TRASH WAX Originally recorded in 1987 for Mike Spenser (of Cannibals notoriety) by Dave Goodman (Sex Pistols producer) but never released! So Trash Wax released it after all these years. Why? Because it's brilliant garage trash, reminiscent of The Vibes and early Purple Things. And these guys were truly under-rated, eventually going onto greater and better things in bands such as The Shamen, Alabama 3, The Diaboliks, The Dustophonics and Orbital! Limited to 250 copies CD $14 SKU:21526

WALKER, SCOTT - 4 DISC BOX SET!-LIVE ON AIR 1968-1969-Label:LONDON CALLING Presented as a 4-DISC SET (with remastered sound) is the live audio of Scott Walker's performances on his own television show, broadcast by the BBC in 1968 and 1969.

WEIRD OMEN -SURREALISTIC FEAST(hypnotic garage-psych Kinks/Cramps style ) Label:DIRTY WATER An hypnotic garage-psych affair, 'Surrealistic Feast' is the 2019 full-length by the unusual French duo that roughly sounds like a blend of The Kinks and The Cramps. Balancing between a gloomy psychedelic atmosphere and fast-paced punk energy, Weird Omen manages to make something new with the old. CD $17 SKU:21498

RESTOCKS

ALAIN PIRE EXPERIENCE-APEX (THEE neo-psych band from Belgium!) Label:CARDINAL FUZZ This is the most ambitious album so far by the Alain Pire Experience, THEE neo-psychedelic band from Belgium. Their third opus is simply called 'Apex', which means a point in Hercules' Constellation towards which our solar system is heading. Never forgetting their sense for melody, the band is also keen to create psychedelic atmospheres, using sitar, tablas, mellotron and backward loops. 'Apex' features a fantastic cover of George Harrison's 'Only A Northern Song' and welcomes, former Magma keyboard player, Jean-Luc Manderlier for an epic trippy improvisation on the Floydish 'Lost On A Cloud'.

CRYPT TRIP - HAZE COUNTY (Rural hard rock psych)-Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Mixing elements of hard rock, psychedelic, and rural music, each track is unique and has something different to say.

SCHIBBINZ - Livin Free (rare 1967 Argentine garage ) - Label:GUERSSEN Previously released on vinyl, now available in a CD version. In 1967, a bunch of U.S. and Argentinean kids recorded a magical album which has remained unknown for many years due to its extreme rarity, with less than a handful of copies known to exist. Released in 1968 in Argentina by Phonexa, the Schibbinz album could be regarded as the ultimate teen garage folk-rock album, ever. An album of fragile beauty, full of teen charm, innocent vocals, jangly guitars, charming, lo-fi sound and a lost-in-time atmosphere. Guerssen Records is proud to present this mega-rare album to the world, with the production fully benefitting from the band's involvement and assistance.
