NEW ARRIVALS

BEAUSOLEIL, BOBBY- LUCIFER RISING O.S.T-Label:AJNA OFFENSIVE This score was originally pressed on LP in 1980 and then presented as a 4LP boxset (and 4CD boxset) featuring the original release plus additional session recordings. Now we get an affordable, remastered release of the legendary/notorious 'Lucifer Rising' soundtrack that was originally composed for Kenneth Anger's film of the same name. CD $17 SKU:22994

ELECTRIC FUNERAL -THE WILD PERFORMANCE (60s Deep Purple/Zep/Sabbath style) W BONUS TRACKS Label:SOMMER Swiss band Electric Funeral was influenced by bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Famous fr their loud and powerful shows, their sound was too heavy for a regular label to offer them a contract. 'The Wild Performance' is made of private live and rehearsal tapes recorded in 1970. Though the sound quality is very raw and lo-fi, it's the only testimony of their brutal sound. Released in 1991 as a very limited LP, here is an expanded edition with a remastered sound and four bonus tracks CD $18 SKU:22998

NORVINS -No Tyme for Tears (60s garage-fuzz-punk style-Label:SOUNDFLAT Fast and fuzzy songs, organ fuelled tunes, psych and we even get a folky composition. The tracklist features mostly originals, but there also are covers of The Huns and The Epic Five. CD $17 SKU:22939

SONIC DAWN- ENTER THE MIRAGE (STONER PSYCH)-Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS 'Enter The Mirage' is arguably the most blazing and powerful album yet by The Sonic Dawn.

KAMINARI VOL. 2-NINETEEN MORE JAPANESE GARAGE MONSTERS (60s style beat, surf and garage)-Label:GROOVIE rue to its original concept, this volume of 'Kaminari' brings you another batch of 19 exciting underground bands from all over Japan.

CYCLE- Cosmic CLouds (70s Brit prog) DBL GATEFOLDLabel:RISE ABOVE RELICS Cycle were a very popular progressive hard rock band from the Northeast of England, who performed locally between 1970-1975. During that time they recorded two full length albums, the first of which (recorded in 1971) was privately pressed by the band in a quantity of less than 100 copies, without artwork. These were distributed amongst friends, fans, family and sent to various publishers, record companies, promoters and record companies. The album is now a major want on many serious collector's lists, values at £1,500-2,000 for an original white label copy. In 1973, they self-financed the recording of a second album, though this wasn't released at all (until now). After several years of intensive research, Rise Above Relics is delighted to bring you this fully authorised release, featuring all of Cycle's studio output. All recordings have been painstakingly restored to the highest spec possible. The 2LP edition comes with a gatefold sleeve and an insert, outlining the history of the band with tons of photos and flyers from the band member's personal archive. Cycle were, without doubt, a truly excellent band during the underground progressive era of the early '70s. There is no denying that they should have received wider recognition and a proper recording contract. Although very much a band of their time, Cycle combined the heaviness of Black Sabbath with the cosmic vibes of Hawkwind. 'Cosmic Clouds' is a truly obscure cult artefact from the golden age of underground British hard rock. Limited to 500 copies on silver vinyl LP $29 SKU:22783

DUSTAPHONICS - BIG SMOKE LONDON TOWN (70s style punk/R&B/GARAGE) Label:DIRTY WATER THE DUSTAPHONICS' music is a fantastic mash-up that details their musical influences. We hear elements of booze-soaked 1950s rhythm and blues, vintage stomping buttshaker soul, '60s garage rock and British beat/r&b, Vegas lounge, sleazy grind instrumentals and surf guitar. And the whole deal is sealed and delivered with the spirit of '70s punk. The best of vintage music styles, performed and produced in a way that can suit modern ears. LP $24 SKU:22997

HIGHSPEED V - Demented R&B (Swedish '60s garage-punk revivalist) Label:GROOVIE RECORDS A collection of all the existing recordings (including previously unissued tracks) from the short lived Swedish '60s garage-punk revivalists, active in the '80s. They included two members from the well known Crimson Shadows. The LP incluides an insert offering rare photos, and the full story on Stockholm's neo-garage scene (plus family tree) by Patrick Lundborg, author of The Acid Archives and Psychedelia books. LP $20 SKU:16149

SNAILS (GREECE)- ST ( garage kicks, sixties psych mythology and punk )Label:BELUGA A blend of garage kicks, sixties psych mythology and punk insolence.

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 $19 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

7SHADES-BURSTING(prog/punk/pop/psych pranksters)Label:SNAFU RECORDINGS The much anticipated second album from prog/punk/pop/psych pranksters 7shades. Crammed to the gills with all manner of melodic, harmonic and rhythmic deviance, this is a band that is clearly not afraid to venture into the lesser-travelled realms of maximalism. Self-professed devotees of the work of Tim Smith and Cardiacs, that inherited DNA is still in strong evidence throughout 'Bursting', but as a whole the album seems to be striking out in a myriad of other directions. Influences from Gong, King Crimson and Mike Patton are evident, for example, but it is far from being any kind of mere prog copycat affair CD $15 SKU:22630

LUTHER -N- THE B.B.B.'S- BEST OF, VOL. 1Label:LAKESIDE MUSIC "This is an oddly fascinating record, as it covers the nearly two-decade career of a band all but unheard of outside of a 25-mile radius of Rochester, NY. These 25 tracks, recorded between 1982 and 1997, include such parochial standbys as a Christmas single, a radio jingle for a local business, and a snippet of live tape recorded at a dance marathon at the University of Rochester. Holtzman's other songs are genial guitar pop along the lines of the Raspberries, Shoes, or other Beatles-fixated power poppers of the '70s." ~Stewart Mason/Allmusic.com CD $19 SKU:22672

ACTION -Rolled GOld(legendary 60s psych)Label:GUERRSON The Action never became stars, but Rolled Gold justifies the legend.” - David Fricke (Rolling Stone Magazine) •Digitally remastered from the master tapes. •Insert with photos and detailed liner notes by Jason Barnard (Shindig!). •“It's as if Paul Weller time-travelled back to 1967 and wrote the best songs of his career. Every track is a fully realized melodic and lyrical statement.” – Matt Collar (allmusic.com)The legendary 1967-68 recordings by UK mod band THE ACTION, registered when they were in transition from mod-beat to full-blown psychedelia, just prior to becoming MIGHTY BABY. Originally recorded as a set of demos with the intention of obtaining an album deal which inexplicably never materialized, “Rolled Gold” is a collection of brilliant songs, melancholic yet powerful. The Action’s classic line-up of Reg King, Alan ‘Bam’ King, Michael Evans and Roger Powell is augmented with the inclusion of new members Martin Stone on guitar and Ian Whiteman on flute / organ. All of them are playing their hearts out: superb harmonies, great guitar work and clever arrangements which show the influence of bands like The Byrds and the psychedelic sounds that were coming from the West Coast and UK as well as jazz giants like Coltrane. Always the stuff of legend, The “Rolled Gold” tapes were shelved at the time, not released until 1997 when the Dig The Fuzz label discovered them and did a limited LP/CD run. Out of print on vinyl for many years, we present a new vinyl edition. If you dig the psychedelic era of SMALL FACES, PRETTY THINGS, THE WHO, plus THE CREATION, NAZZ, TOMORROW, BLOSSOM TOES, THE END or TRAFFIC…look no further.

BLACK MERDA -ST (70s psych funk) Label:LILITH Hailing from late-sixties Detroit, Black Merda (pronounced "Murder") were both aesthetically and musically way ahead of their time. When most black groups (including Parliament / Funkadelic) were still sporting suits, singing about love and using a horn section, Black Merda had already become a tight guitar-heavy freak-funk four piece. By weaving guitar rock and psychedelia into soul and R&B they were the gods of the underground "black rock" movement which fell somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and Parliament and MC5. But it wasn't just about the music the message was just as important, starting with the bands name (Black Murder - in protest of the mass slaughter of African Americans during the Civil Rights Movement). As in the original release, features a 30-second 11th track not mentioned in the track listing on the outer sleeve but present on the album. On 180 gram vinyl. LP $24 SKU:22773

CAVE CHILDREN-Quasiland (Dreamy psych/garage like Beatles 1969 PLUS CD! -Label: INNER EAR First album by The Cave Children.

The Athenian quartet has been influenced, among others, by the evocative soundtracks of Danny Elfman, The Beatles of 1969, Frank Zappa's sarcasm, the British '90s, Greek music and the new psychedelic rock scene. LP $25 SKU:22782

CHEEKS -Feathered Tigers (powerpop psych garage kings)Label:TEEN SOUND Dortmund's own powerpop kings have evolved into one of the best Garage-Psych acts around these days.

Their garage attitude is still there but the pop approach of the band demostrates how mature their now sound is, today, just like the cover LP $22 SKU:22546
