Label:SULATRON Sula Bassana and Komet Lulu from Electric Moon, all the guys from Papir and Mogens Deenfort from Oresund Space Collective got together for an exciting show at the 2014 edition of the well known Roadburn fest in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

PATERNOSTER -ST (prime Krautrock 1972) SAALE! -Label:OHRWASCHL Circa 1972—what goths would have listened too had there been goths back then! hippy psychedelic acid-fueled downer rock, complete with full-blown psychedelic guitar freakouts, coupled with somber church-like organ and a vocalist who sounds on the verge of tears throughout the album. Oh so sad. This is a complex album, to be sure, with terrific flights into the cosmos often compared to those fine Krautrock exemplars Gila and Virus. A most melancholic, wonderful record, the sort of thing that all too often is relegated to the prog/psych collectors corner; an odd, but excellent, hidden treasure that shares a dark mentality with the likes of Comus. CD $10 SKU:21434

PAUL, BILLY -Feelin' Good at the Cadillac Club (1967)TWO ONLY Label:BIG BREAK As a young man in the mid-1940s, Paul was already known on the Philadelphia airwaves, and he parlayed his success into live gigs with artists as renowned as jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker. He opened for artists including Nina Simone, Miles Davis and Dinah Washington, and won an amateur night at the Apollo. Naturally, record labels pursued Paul, and he had been recording since 1959. Paul was performing at Philadelphia’s Cadillac Club in 1967 when Kenny Gamble spotted him. He ushered him into the studio for "Feelin’ Good at the Cadillac Club," his long-playing album debut for Gamble Records. Typical of the era, it was a studio effort despite the live title. "Feelin’ Good..." was primarily composed of theatrical standards ('On a Clear Day You Can See Forever,' 'Just in Time,' 'Feelin’ Good,' 'Somewhere') with some more recent pop songs also in the mix ('That’s Life,' 'Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.') CD $5 SKU:20664

PENTWATER - ST (digipack with lyrics insert and bonus tracks -rare 70s prog rock ) -Label:BEEF Band-released reissue of 1978 progressive from Illinois, remixed and remastered from the original analog tapes, digipack with lyric insert. "Today this collectible LP brings hundreds at auction; the band released this remastered version on CD, with four additional never-heard tracks as bonus CD $12 SKU:14565

PENTWATER -Out of the Abyss (70s weirdness prog style) -Label:SYN-PHONIC (USA) Combining heavy helpings of Yes, Genesis and ELP with the some of the weirdness of Frank Zappa, Out of the Abyss, and Pentwater in general had some of the quirkiest and most unusual progressive rock ever created. This album is most likely one of those albums that you will not be all that sure of on the first few listenings, but will probably grow to be one of the most prized CD`s in your collection. The vocals are quite unique, and until one gets used to them, even a bit annoying at times, but actually they are very good. Having an almost psychotic sound occasionally, these songs contain some of the most creative arrangements that I have ever heard. The musicians (Ron Fox, Phil Goldman, Ken Kappel, Mike Konopka, Ron LeSaar, and Tom Orsi) play a wide variety of instruments, augmenting the typical guitar, bass, keyboards and drums with (among other things) anvil, oboe, tubular bells and theremin. Honestly, the theremin itself earns them some points in my book. Pentwater was a Chicago area band that were performing for about nine years in the 1970`s and this album is a compilation of material that they recorded from 1973 to 1976. All of the material here is previously unreleased with the exception of ‘Gwen’s Madrigal,’ and even that is an unreleased version.” - Gary Hill of Music Street Journal CD $12 SKU:20197

PETER COOK + DUDLEY MOORE -Bedazzled Soundtrack 1967 SAALE!-Label:ACME Dudley Moore's score to the 1968 cult classic Bedazzled is a delightful jazz romp. Moore composed, arranged, and produced the music for his trio: Moore on piano, Pete McGurk on bass, and Chris Karan on drums. Moore keeps things light and airy, and also consistently cool, as he and his jazz cronies jam with precision. His fingers twinkle across the piano, portraying the comedy, tension, and emotion of the onscreen action to a tee. Saxophones, flutes, violins, and assorted horns chime in to express sadness or to take the music down truly whimsical side avenues. The three vocal songs are glorious, and it helps that they underscore the film's highlights. The pleasant choir musings of "The Leaping Nuns' Chorus" immediately brings to mind those religious figures on trampolines. Moore's pitch-perfect vocals on "Love Me" add a witty sneer to the song's bombastic undercurrent. It's impossible not to smile when he sings, "I'm on my knees/Won't you please come and love me." Peter Cook's droll, stoic voice on "Bedazzled" would be the score's standout feature if his longtime partner, Moore, wasn't such an accomplished pianist and such an intelligent jazz arranger. Who can resist Cook's dismissals of, "I don't love you, leave me alone/I'm self-contained/You fill me with inertia," as Moore implores backing vocalists to drown him in adoration? The "Main Title"'s melody makes appearances throughout the soundtrack, and Moore repeatedly twists and turns it into something new and fascinating. Filled with energy, sparklingly beautiful jazz passages, and an expert balance of classical motifs and hilarious vocals, Bedazzled is a timeless reminder of Dudley Moore's genius. CD $10 SKU:20452

BUZZSAW JOINT -CUTS 5 & 6 (wild n' weird sounds from all the globe)-Label:STAG-O-LEE (GERMANY) Buzzsaw Joint was born of a club offering Londoners the chance to revel in the sounds of good ol' trashy rock n' roll in all its vintage vinyl forms. Club top-cat, Fritz, then took the primitive buzzsaw sounds online with a series of savage Mixcloud mixes created by record fiends from all over the globe. Now, the high-octane energy of Buzzsaw Joint has manifested into the physical form with a run of compilations on Stag-O-Lee. Get your ears around the wild n' weird sounds of the extraordinary and inimitable Buzzsaw Joint! Cut 4 has been compiled by the Juke Joint crew, an international trio of music fanatics. These guys spend all their time (and money!) seeking out rare, weird, and wonderful original vinyl 45s. They don't mind getting dusty fingers digging up obscure sounds for their pleasure and yours. Not interested in glory, Juke Joint just wants to celebrate the artists who crafted these amazing moments in time. Their no-holds-barred approach to music appreciation puts them ahead of the curve when it comes to selection. Sixteen tracks recorded between 1953-1962. Cheers to the ears of Juke, Mr. Woods, and DJ Pelt COMP CD $10 SKU:21969

A colorful collection of obscured and exuberant pop nuggets -- the psychedelic effects have gone and the lightshows have blown, but their lingering presence in the aftermath of the hallucinogenic haze is, though less defined, strangely evident. The end of the explosive decade that brought us the fab four and gave us the pop star was proving to be a turning point in both musical and political terms. Curiosity Shop Two provides a precious insight into the changing times with an illustrious soundtrack to furnish the senses. Good vibrations indeed! Rare and obscure artifacts by Steve and Stevie, Pythagoras Theorem, Ian Campbell Group, Dr. Marigold's Prescription, Juan and Junior, Marc Reid, Casuals, Ten Feet, Jonathan Kelly, Julie Sullivan, Soft Slipper, Galliard, Noel Harrison, Barry Hopkins, Lori Balmer, Polly Niles, Davey Payne, and Sasperella, originally released between 1967 and 1972.

ELECTRIC ASYLUM - Vol 4 (Rock Hard 60s and 70s British Freakrock)SAALE! Label:PAST AND PRESENT The fourth volume in Past & Present's Electric Asylum series walks away from the psychedelic themes of the earlier installments in favor of U.K. hard rock singles of the early to mid-'70s, most hailing from the days before heavy metal had fully codified itself and sometimes betraying the influence of the working-class end of glam (think Slade, not Bowie). COMP CD $10 SKU:21151

SICK ROSE-Chapter One(:80's garage-punk)-Label: SCREAMING APPLE Considered to be one of most important 80's garage-punk bands alongside the CRIMSON SHADOWS, the STOMACH MOUTHS and the GREEN TELESCOPE Europe had to offer, they were arguably even the first european act to have the impact globally in the same manner as The CHESTERFIELD KINKS and The MIRACLE WORKERS.
"Chapter One", a collection of all their long outta print 45s and other rarities they've released between 1985 and 1987. Remastered by Mr. Tim "Back From The Grave" Warren in 2016. LP $19 SKU:22812

SILVER THUNDERS-ME GRITAN MELENUDO (1968 Spanish garage)Label:MUNSTER The Silver Thunders was one of the best bands to emerge from Bogota's lively beat and garage-rock scene during the second half of the '60s. Whereas their colleagues Los Speakers, The Flippers, Los Beatniks, Los Ampex and Los Streaks managed to release plenty of records (most of which became international collectors' items), The Silver Thunders cut just one LP that never saw the light of day. Until now that is! Dating back to 1968, 'Me Gritan Melenudo' contains a raw and wild mixture of Mersey beat, garage rock and surf influences. The tracklist includes originals as well as cool cover versions of songs known from The Beatles, The Monkees, The Troggs, Lovin' Spoonful, Miriam Makeba and The Ventures. The LP comes with liner notes, rare pix AND a bunch of bonus tracks, including recordings from 1970, at which time the band was known as Los Yoguis! LP $25 SKU:21834

SNAILS (GREECE)- ST ( garage kicks, sixties psych mythology and punk )Label:BELUGA A blend of garage kicks, sixties psych mythology and punk insolence. The solid rhythm section, hell-fuzzed guitars, haunted vocals and a possessed harmonica will blow your mind. Included are great covers of the Third Bardo's 'I'm Five Years Ahead Of My Time', Santana's 'Gypsy Woman' (with additional vocals by Angel Lo Verde and Dimitris Beleniotis from the legendary Cardinals) and 'Satisfaction Guaranteed', originally by Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes. The album is housed in a pretty trippy cover LP $17 SKU:21664

SONIC DAWN - ENTER THE MIRAGE-Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Arguably the most blazing and powerful album yet by The Sonic Dawn. It has an unusual live feel for a studio album, packing much of the raw energy and electricity that has made The Sonic Dawn's psychedelic concerts famous in the rock underground. LP $22 SKU:22930

SONIC DAWN -(MARBLED)INTO THE LONG NIGHT (Danish acid psych)-Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Repress of 400 copies on white/purple/red marbled vinyl. The second album by The Sonic Dawn, one of the most remarkable bands to emerge from Denmark's current psychedelic wave. To achieve the dramatic changes of mood and feeling that The Sonic Dawn excels at, the band mixes a wide range of styles, from jazzy sitar pop to heavy acid rock. A pleasant-sounding analogue production makes the album easy to approach. Not to water it down, but rather to pull the unsuspecting listener into the deep. Fans of psychedelic rock, neo-psych, freak beat and classic rock will surely enjoy this record. LP $22 SKU:23061

SPIES -ST (60’s Greek beat-garage) W INSERT SAALE! Label:ANAZITISI The Spies was a late 60’s Greek beat-garage band. During their lifetime they managed to release just one single in 1968, which is very rare nowadays. This album contains this rare single as well as four recently unearthed unreleased studio recordings from 1969. Two more songs from the “rockier” The Spies mkII are also included. These last tracks are live recordings from a club where the band was playing in 1972 and are of mediocre sound quality—but we had to include them in order to be able to present to you the complete works of this significant and overlooked band. Includes: *Fully laminated cover. *4-page, LP-sized, insert with bio and photos. *Limited to 350, hand-numbered, black copies. *180gr vinyl as usual. *Resealable nylon outersleeve. LP $18 SKU:20839

STAMP,TERRY-FAT STICKS (1975 w Bowie, T REx and more!) SAALE - Label:JUST ADD WATER Previously the singer and guitar chopper of Third World War, Terry Stamp released his brilliant yet obscure solo-album 'Fatsticks' in 1975. Featuring musicians who were also involved with a.o. The Attack, Thunderclap Newman, Patto, David Bowie, T.Rex and more, this hidden masterpiece (which failed to attract attention back in the day) finally gets the reissue it deserves. LP $22 SKU:22644

RESTOCK, REMINDERS, AND DISCOUNTS

OLIVERS - THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS 964-71 U.S. psych w 8 bonus tracks - Label:BREAK A WAY The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana are best known for their highly sought after 1966 picture cover 45 on Phalanx Records titled 'I Saw What You Did' b/w 'Beeker Street'. The single got picked up by RCA Records for nationwide release and is today rated as one of the best and most exciting double sided major label garage 45s of the 1960s. A planned second single and LP release for RCA never happened. 'Complete Recordings, 1964-71' is a 15-track CD presenting the band's 1969 top notch psych album 'Lost Dove Sessions', featuring the nine minute long 'Jessica Ryder', the spooky 'Mushroom', the brooding organ driven 'The End', psychers such as 'Ball Of Fire', heavy rockers such as 'Free' and the trippy never ending 11-minute slashing guitar freakout of 'Social Slavery'. None less than eight bonus cuts are added to the CD including the group's sole double sided 1966 fuzzkiller 45rpm, two rare 1965 single releases by pre-Olivers garage band 'The Serfmen' responsible for one of the most ever snarling '60s punk version of Ronnie Love's 'Chills & Fever' plus three more incredible early Aldrich/Richie penned killer garage originals. The CD closes with a rare 45 recorded by former Olivers members under the name Triad. This amazing 60-minute trip through the sixties and captures the incredible talent and versatility of the Olivers and proves that the band does not only deserve the plaudit "Indiana Sixties Rock Heroes", but also had the potential for the national breakthrough that never happened. A 16-page booklet documents the band's long career as told by its original members and a cache of unseen photos completes the band's 1964-'71 history. CD $14 SKU:14793

ON AND ONS - WELCOME ABOARD (powerpop w STEMS/WIGGLES members)Label:CITADEL Welcome Aboard', the second album by these Australian garage rock/powerpoppers, is produced by band members Glenn and Clyde and mixed once again by Dennis Wilson of early '70s Australian band Khavas Jute.

The band is aided and abetted by a number of guests including Richard Lane (ex-Stems) on organ, and Murray Cook (ex-The Wiggles) on Fender 12 string. CD $14 SKU:23319

ORSON WITH THE SQIDS INC -ST (Aussie alternative rock 1997) SAALE DBL CD Label:OFF THE HIP Reissue from 90's indie Adelaide outfit. An alternative rock band formed in late 1997 out of a love for original music and with a quest to record as much as possible.

OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY- Universal Malcontents digipack (Amazing psych pop/ cosmic blues)- Label:ALIVE Leader/songsmith MATTHEW SMITH is more on form than ever before, whether on a cosmic blues rocker like 'Outsider,' a shimmering psych popper like 'Feels Like Shadows,' a glam-inflected choogler like 'I Recognized Her' or a sardonic stomper like 'It's Not Rock N' Roll (And I Don't Like It).' Universal Malcontents is, I think, Outrageous Cherry's most consistently engaging album, and that's saying a lot. - The Big Takeover CD $5 SKU:9539

OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY - Seemingly Solid Reality ( glam psych ) - Label:ALIVE After the critically acclaimed glam/psych miasma of 2009's UNIVERSAL MALCONTENTS, and subsequent tours in Europe and the USA, O.C. returned to their analog cave to record Matthew Smith's latest batch of tunes. Throughout SEEMINGLY SOLID REALITY, sweet melodies and harmonies soar over the gnashing of vicious, urban Motor City guitar workouts. Motown-fueled bass and drums throb hypnotically. OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY recently got a lot of love from The NEW P*RNOGRAPHERS who recorded a EP of their songs for Matador titled "Togetherness - The New P*rnographers play Outrageous Cherry" CD $5 SKU:11568

OUTSIDERS -CQ (1968 Dutch rockers)Label:RPM The American writer Richie Unterberger called them “not just the finest Dutch group of the ’60s, but the finest group from a non-English speaking country, period.” Holland’s Outsiders have a posthumous reputation that grows and grows. Their 1968 album CQ was a benchmark, one of the greatest albums of the late ’60s from anywhere. RPM International is proud to issue the legendary CQ on CD outside the Netherlands for the first time. Staggeringly it apparently sold just 500 copies when it was originally released. Our package carries bonus tracks from a professionally recorded1968 concert of CQ material at The Fanstasio, in Amsterdam, their home town, by radio station VPRO. CQ was made by a band with their own identity. Songs like ‘Daddy Died On Saturday' have the intensity of the Velvet Underground’s ‘White Light White Heat;’ 'Prison Song’ is the atmospheric equal of The Doors’ ‘The End’. Mike Stax, the editor of Ugly Things magazine, long-time Outsiders’ champion and friend of the band has contributed liner notes. With its iconic original cover art, this is the definitive reissue of CQ. CD $14 SKU:21294

CD $10 SKU:14227

PAINT FUMES-IT AIN'T WORTH A HUFF Label:GET HIP Like the lovechild of Link Wray and Cheetah Chrome, raised by Lemmy on the streets of Venus, they sweated out the fever every night in ecstatic style. By the time Slovenly Recs got around to spitting out a couple classic 45s and their debut platter Uck Life, most true heads and even those way out of the know alike had gotten the message.

PAYBACKS - Harder and Harder (real-deal Detroit R&R ) Label:GET HIP The Paybacks are real-deal Detroit R&R with capital letters and still stand as one of the city's best kept secrets. Fueled by the rocker-with-a-heart-of-gold vocals of Wendy Case, on ‘Harder And Harder ’, the Paybacks belt out nearly a dozen honest and passionate songs loaded with hooks. Their’s no denying that Wendy voice sounds like a combination of Wendy O. Williams and Joan Jett as she belts out eleven strong songs of sonic brash pop with blazing hard rock riffs and some firey guitar leads. The Paybacks are equal parts swagger and stagger as they plug away on melodic rockers like "Bright Side" and the glittery blues anthem "Jumpy." The scorching riff rockers like "Superrider" and "Scotch Love" assert how powerful and unrelenting this Motor City quartet can be and the soulfully executed ballad "Can You Drive?" suggests the band can do more than raise hell. ‘Harder And Harder’ sounds like a sonic combustion of The Runayways, the MC5 and the Dirtbombs played with a ton of heart and soul. And by calling this sonic firecracker ‘Harder and Harder’, the Paybacks will never be accused of false advertising. CD $10 SKU:21820

A FINE DAY AND A BRILLIANT EVENING -Cherry Red Rarities 1983-85 (willowy pop)Label:CHERRY RED More willowy pop of yesteryear from the vaults of Cherry Red. The second release in the Cherry Red Rarities series, is a collection of rare and upstanding tracks from three of Cherry Red’s most popular artists: Jane And Barton, Grab Grab The Haddock (yes, they really did exist) and In Embrace. “The juxtaposition of the three artists here seems coincidental, yet they successfully present different facets of the sound of the label during the early 80's. Jane & Barton start with the acapella 'It's A Fine Day' which was later turned into the Opus III dancefloor smash. Flute and percussion accompany Jane on 'I Want To Be With You' to nice pastoral effects a la Virginia Astley, although the latter would have never named one of her songs 'Ha Bloody Ha', which poses such thought-provoking questions as "Did you hear about the woman who died" or "What part of a vegetable can't you eat". Simple voice and piano arrangement on 'There Is A Man' and 'You Are Over There' makes ideal lazy afternoon listening, only to be rudely disturbed by Mr.Barton's grating screech on 'You Are Over There Part Two'. Onto the marvelously named Grab Grab The Haddock, which included two of the three Marine Girls after Tracey Thorn went on to form Everything But The Girl. They pretty much carried on with the style of their previous band, only now augmented to a four-piece. Lightweight summery guitar pop, the stuff that made Cherry Red famous. In Embrace played moody melodic pop with guitar and synths. Although once described as 'introverted and emotionally unfathomable' the songs are actually quite classy and the sentiments deeply felt. 'The Darkest Horse' features a spine-tingling chord progression slightly reminiscent of the Cocteaus. They should have been big. The CD ends with a bonus video of 'It's A Fine Day'.

ALIVE AT THE DEEP BLUES FESTIVAL -VA W Radio Moscow,Buffalo Killers,John The Conqueror, Left Lane Cruiser, Porkchop, and more!Label:ALIVE BUFFALO KILLERS and RADIO MOSCOW turned in super heavy sets soaked in psychedelia and reverb, while LEE BAINS III & The GLORY FIRES fiercely ripped through their show with a blistering set of songs steeped in Southern rock, R&B, soul, gospel and punk. BRIAN OLIVE and his backing band melded soulful R&B with technicolor garage-pop for their early daytime set, while HENRY’S FUNERAL SHOE (the Welsh duo), LEFT LANE CRUISER and newcomers JOHN THE CONQUEROR perhaps kept closest to the Deep Blues curriculum with their respectively raunchy and heavily amplified modern interpretations of rural gutbucket Delta Blues.

BEYOND THE CALICO WALL - VA ( 60s psych ) Label:VOXX The good people who put together this compilation set out to accomplish no less daunting a task than collecting the most bizarre and extreme underground psychedelic music recorded in the 1960's, and, for the most part, the choices seem to be right on the money. The collection starts off with "The Trip" by Park Avenue Playground, a song that bursts out of the gate with an explosion of fuzz guitar, organ, and mad siren-like oscillating effects, coming at you from all directions, seemingly. Next up is "Suzie's gone" by Afterglow, definitely one of the weirdest singles ever. The singer moans "so...my...world...is...messed...up!" in the most detached voice possible over a staccato organ and drum part, leading to a guitar solo that soon collapses into no recognizable conventional song structure. No less amazing is "Mt. Olympus" by The Flower Power, which starts off as an innocuous and somewhat introspective sounding piece until a wild heavily chorused guitar break, which only slightly warns you of the totally anarchic feedback and free-form noise ending -- which goes on for over a minute in a 3:40 single! Then you get a bizarre sci-fi/horror tale in "The pulse" by Burritt Bradley, and an incredible reading of The Electric Prunes' "I had too much to dream last night" by Rasputin and the Mad Monks, with weird proto-techno sound effects, backwards vocals, and production effects making the backing track fade in and out, creating a disturbing sensory assault. Other highlights include "An experiment in terror" by The Greek Fountains, which is a strange polyrhythmic instrumental, and "Up in my mind" by The Spontaneous Generation, which surely has to rank as one of the most aggressive 60's psych records ever made, with waves of vibrato guitar and insistent wah wah riffing. Also worthwhile is "The electronic insides and metal complexion that make up Herr Dr. Krieg," by The Riders of the Mark, which musically isn't quite as strange as its title, but comes close! The weirdness factor decreases somewhat as the c.d. progresses, and a sloppy but straightforward cover of "In a gadda da vida" by Six Feet Under makes for a pretty uninteresting closer, but the good material here makes this an essential purchase. Buy it if you like psychedelia, experimental or Incredibly Strange Music. Robert Schell (Townsville, Texas) COMP CD $10 SKU:22106

SPIRAL GALAXY -ST (Spacey Freak folk) Label:LION •Expansive kosmische sounds with sitar and electronics, that travels fwrom devotional soundscapes to motorik beats, freak-folk and beyond. Traveling the spaceways as Spiral Galaxy, flautist/painter Sara Gossett and treated guitar/machines manipulator Plastic Crimewave (of Plastic Crimewave Syndicate/Galactic Zoo Dossier magazine) have created devotional sonic voyages and droney soundscapes with the occasional rhythmic pulse to conjure the textural and kosmische vibe of 70s German seekers like Yatha Sidhra, Emtidi, Popul Vuh, Achim Reichel, Sand, and early Kraftwerk. The duo have just completed their first album, expansive tracks they had been performing live on tours in the UK and Italy, plus USA events like Chicago Psych Fest, Milwaukee Psych Fest, Far Out Nashville festival, and The Feed Me Weird Things series in Iowa City. Treating the studio as an instrument, new layers, instruments and collaborators were added to the heady mix, like special guests Jean-Hervé Péron of legendary avant-German collective Faust (who Spiral Galaxy was lucky enough to open for, and collaborate with on stage); Kawabata Makoto of Japanese communal psychlords Acid Mothers Temple on chants and spoken voice; and Alisha Sufit of UK 70s eastern-folk band Magic Carpet (also chanting her heart out). Also appearing on the album are guitar wunderkind Ryley Walker (playing backwards guitar on this, not easy!), Taralie of Spires that in the Sunset Rise on Terry Riley-ish circular sax, sitar-player Hands of Hydra, Moog-maestro Will MacLean of Protovulcan, and Christian Luke Brady of meditative Virginia cosmonauts Fargon. What results is a dense, hallucinogenic, sonic tapestry of an LP that covers many moods—from divine soundscapes to Krautrock's motorik beats, doomy experimental pieces to dark acid folk, and beyond.
