FLIES -Complete Collection 1965-68 (UK Fuzz psych legends of Choc Soup for Diabetics fame)Label:ACME lion From the opening riff of the Flies’ hard-edged debut single for Decca, ‘(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone,’ you might think that here was a band who were destined for glory—possibly even fame and fortune. But their story, like that of many awe-inspiring UK underground bands from the 1960s, was not a success story. Yes, the Flies had a few other releases on Decca and RCA, none of which attained any chart success. If not for the inclusion of this one slab of fuzz psychedelia on the legendary compilation "Chocolate Soup for Diabetics", the Flies would perhaps have remained unknown to devotees of the 1960s psychedelic scene. Still, this was a band that played major gigs with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, the Moody Blues, and Traffic, and were a big part of the mayhem at the legendary 14-hour Technicolour Dream event in London in 1967; this is a band whose key members founded bands like Please, T2, Bulldog Breed, Gun, and Infinity, and whose producer was Ivor Raymonde, who co-authored and arranged Dusty Springfield’s big hits for Philips (and also sired Cocteau Twins’ bassist Simon Raymonde). Although commercial success eluded them, it is fitting that the Flies have now achieved cult fame—their singles, which range from freakbeat to Mark Wirtz-esque pop/psych, merit the acclaim, and their introspective demos are perhaps even better. Contains everything by the Flies—released and unreleased—including demo versions, and alternates LP $22 SKU:20817

LIVING SACRIFICE BAND-Beauty for ashes (75-82 West Coast Xtian heavy rock) - Label:ANAZITISI From 1975 to 1982 the Living Sacrifice Band would play literally hundreds of concerts from the west coast to the east coast and privately produce 3 albums between 1977 and 1981. "Beauty for ashes" is their second one, from 1979. Side A contains 5 pleasant xian folk-rock ballads, with beautiful female vocals and excellent flute and keyboards work, reminiscent of early 70's UK bands. Side B seems to be different enough, containing three extended rock (you could even call them heavy rock) tracks with female and male vocals as well and lots of fuzzy, distorted guitars, and wild flute leads. 3 tracks of the album are (co-)written by Jim and Vicky Tsapatoris of Last Call Of Shiloh fame. This is an officialy reissue, represented here with the original B/W cover which is much rarer than the second edition from 1980, with the well-known "Flower Girl" cover. Fully laminated cover. Includes extra triptych (6-pages LP-sized) insert with bio, photos, lyrics and memorabilia and a reproduction of the second 1980 edition's ("Flower Girl") front and back cover.

MAD TIMOTHY-A Very Snug Joiner (prev. unknown late ‘60s/ early‘70s acetate heavy blooz-psych-Label:OUT-SIDER MUSIC First ever release for this previously unknown late ‘60s/ early ‘70s acetate, rescued from a thrift store in Chicago. Damaged heavy blooz-psych in the vein of Blue Cheer, Majic Ship, Mount Rushmore, Houston Fearless, Apryl Fool, Sweet Slag, Mutzie, Aum, Screw, or a wasted teenage Canned Heat.In these digital and interconnected times, it’s very rare to find an album from the 60s-70s which hasn’t been documented or “discovered” yet. That’s the case with a mysterious demo LP titled “A Very Snug Joiner” by a band called Mad Timothy. In words of Steve Krakow (of Plastic Crimewave / Galactic Zoo): “A friend of mine found this no-jacket LP at a thrift shop, and there is ZERO information on them--no one knows anything and I've spoken to many collectors. Very cool sludgy Blue Cheer/Majic Ship/Mount Rushmore kind of vibe--with a few folkier tracks---it’s all pretty charmingly primitive-- I think people would want to hear this!”Even knowing that our efforts to track down the band were fruitless, we thought that this rarity deserved to be shared with the world, so we at Out-Sider / Guerssen in collaboration with Steve’s Galactic Archive imprint, are doing a vinyl edition of the Mad Timothy demo album, hoping that any of the band members will see it and contact us…*The audio has been lovingly restored for full thudding blastage, with new artwork by underground sculptor Robert Buchholz and Plastic Crimewave (Galactic Zoo Dossier) LP $28 SKU:20837
SPIES -ST (60’s Greek beat-garage) W INSERT Label:ANAZITISI The Spies was a late 60’s Greek beat-garage band.

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.

Recorded at Chalk Farm and released in 1971, by Mushroom Records (Magic Carpet, Simon Finn “Pass the Distance,” Second Hand, etc.).

VAVOURA BAND (LAST COPY!) Ethnic: Soundtracks For Films (heavy stoned Pink Floyd style in a miniature metal film can)Label:IKAROS MUSIC (Greece) An altogether different sort of disc from the Vavoura Band material previously issued by Ikaros—and wow! what a great disc! ethnic flavored instrumentals replete with exotic percussion, swirling guitar lines, and a truly heavy stoned atmosphere reminiscent of early Popol Vuh (if anything), or in some cases early Pink Floyd (when the rest of the band kick in); just as a random sample, the fifth track starts out with a primal yell that will curl your hair, then ventures into abstract heavy progressive territory; the real star here is the exquisite guitar playing of Johnny Vavouras, no matter what the style—and all styles played here certainly validate the claim of being “Ethnic” as the cover of the package states in bold letters; last copies of a limited edition that come in a miniature metal film can—not the only idiosyncratic element to this truly excellent disc. CD $16 SKU:20456
YEZDA URFA -Sacred Baboon (80s zany prog psych)Label:SYN-PHONIC (USA)This on-line review says it all: “What would you get if you combined the sounds of Yes and Gentle Giant with a large dose of psychedelic chemicals? You'd probably get something that sounds a lot like Yezda Urfa. Yezda Urfa is the craziest, zaniest, most incredible progressive rock band that you have never heard. Most of the tracks on “Sacred Baboon” are two speeds: fast and really fast, although they do make room for some lighter moments. Those of you who like guitar dominated progressive rock will have loads to feast on here. Mark Tippins' guitar work always runs full throttle throughout the album with incredibly fast melodic parts, and there's plenty of other virtuosity to be found on the album as well. An ocarina and recorder chorus fill out the beginning of ‘Cancer of the Band.’ Vibes, harpsichords, synths, organs, and voices play in tandem with the guitar. Yezda Urfa pull out all the stops however on ‘3, Almost 4, 6 Yea,’ a high energy track featuring multiple time signatures, cross-cutting sections, and a heartrendingly beautiful classical guitar solo. The album stands up well against similar efforts by other contemporary American acts such as Happy the Man. If you can make it past the juvenile titles such as ‘My Doctor Said I had a Doggie Head’ and ‘Give 'Em Some Rawhide Chewies,’ you'll discover a long-lost classic of prog's darker days. CD $12 SKU:20198
OUR BRILLIANT CAREERS -Cherry Red Rarities 1981-83-Label:CHERRY RED Cherry Red carved out an odd niche for itself apart from the general post-punk flow, thanks largely to eccentric A&R man Mike Always, whose tastes leaned towards melody, Englishness, and the 1960’s. Cherry red became a home for the dashing, debonair whimsy of he Monochrome Set, the mopy bedsit introspection of Eyeless in Gaza, jazzy-folky singer-songwriters Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt (separately and together as Everything But the Girl), and the Television/Velvets descended, plangent splendor of Felt. Although “Pillows and Prayers” is the best-known sampler of the label, its precursor “Perspectives and Distortions” (1981) includes many non-Cherry Red artists, which makes it very interesting; and “Our Brilliant Careers” (2003) scoops up archival arcane. It includes rare tracks by successful Cherry Red artists like Everything But The Girl (plus solo material from both Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt), The Nightingales and The Monochrome Set, plus many more. Most people probably know Five Or Six from their off-key but charming opener 'Portrait' from “Pillows and Prayers”; here we have six like low-key and absorbing tracks from them, most of which have never been on CD: 'Think' and 'Theme' are instrumentals that will surprise a few. There are also three early songs by Ben Watt described modestly by himself as 'dreary and tuneless'. Beautiful instrumental version of 'The Thousand Guitars of St. Dominiques' by the Fantastic Something ends up as the most surprising track—a high point of the collection.” Impressive and intriguing archive collection of rare recordings. COMP CD $5 SKU:20499
PERSPECTIVES AND DISTORTION - VA - Label:CHERRY RED Although “Pillows and Prayers” is the best-known sampler of the label, its precursor “Perspectives and Distortions” (1981) includes many non-Cherry Red artists, which makes it very interesting. In fact, when I bought this compilation in 1981, it was a stunning overview of British experimental 'rock/pop/alterntive' music, played by loads of people I'd never heard of… and a few (like Robert Fripp) that I knew. Time tells us that experimental music can often date really quickly, but most of the music on this comp doesn't. It holds together beautifully, which is surprising because putting arch punks like the Virgin Prunes and Mark Perry in with Kevin Coyne and Robert Fripp, for instance, seems quite out there. Still a lot of names here that I don’t know/remember (A.Tent, the Lemon Kittens), but Matt Johnson (soon to be The The) and Eyeless in Gaza became crucial listening. Listen to it today, and you too might be inspired to check out some new names.” Totally uncommercial music which bordered on the Avant Garde; Outsider Music before anyone thought up the name. COMP CD $5 SKU:20500
BATCH-WAIT'TIL TOMORROW (60s/70's midwest acid psych raritity w insert)Label:ANAZITISI Special limited vinyl edition contains rarities for collectors of 60’s and early 70’s Mid-American Rock ‘n’ Roll All of the tracks recorded between 1968 and early 1970 were home-recordings made on 2-tracks tape-recorders 4-pages insert with lyrics, credits and pics + poster Remastered and restored from the original home-recorded 2-track master tapes LP $19 SKU:18277
BEN-ISRAEL, DANNY- Kathmandu Sessions (Awesome late 60s psychedelic freakouT) - Label:ANAZITISI From Dusty groove “ Here's some pretty awesome late 60s psychedelic freakout gems from a cat we'd never heard of before -- Israeli citizen Danny Ben-Israel -- who only ever recorded a couple of albums worth of material! The massive, free-spiraling tunes that comprise the first 3 tracks on this record combine the kind of way out space trip electric guitar that Hendrix played live but never recorded, and stable bass, drums and Eastern-tinged keyboards that keep it all rock and roll -- no matter how out there Danny's wailing vocals and lyrics go. LP $21 SKU:20818
CARGO -Front Side Back Side LAST COPY(Canada based 60s psych quartet) Label:ANAZITISI Toronto, Canada based psychedelic quartet began as the Prophets in the mid-60's. Then they renamed themselves The City Suite and finally came the Cargo name. As Cargo they released two LPs and two 7" singles before they split up in 1971. Dreamy psychrock with some mild-jazzy atmospheric improvisations and a couple of spoken mayhem freak-out passages coming between the tracks. LP $25 SKU:20832
CIRKUS - One (73 Brit prog with 7”, bios and photos) Label:ANAZITISI Official vinyl reissue of one of the best progressive albums ever resurfaced from the British Islands.Despite being self-recorded, the 1973 debut by this British progressive quintet is one of the most accomplished albums in its genre, recalling the work of Yes, King Crimson and the Moody Blues, with plenty of imaginative keyboard and guitar work. LP $21 SKU:20819
CWT -Hundredweight (1973 Brit heavy rock)LAST COPIES -Label:OHRWASCHL RECORDS/KUCKUCK (Germany) The only album from this English heavy rock trio, released on Kuckuck in 1973—one of the heaviest acts on the label. CWT Guest musician Cy Payne is responsible for the brass arrangements, which gives CWT a very special sound; apart from the fantastic guitar and vocal work of Graham Jones, the brass section gives CWT a Motown Soul touch, a real heavy groove. All in all, it makes "The Hundredweight" an interesting album with some faster and softer points. Tracks like ‘Steam Roller’ are devastating, filled with the hardest riffing and rough vocals. It might be accurate to compare CWT with bands like Sir Lord Baltimore or Cactus: they are of a same class, so to speak, and all liked their basic heavy blues rock LP $21 SKU:20784
FELT (MYKE JACKSON)- Alone(obscure 70s psych folk/power pop /lounge rock!) Label:ANAZITISI This is the first ever official reissue of this under-rated and very rare record (rarer than Felt on Nasco). You will not find it in the Acid Archives, Endless Trip or Fuzz, Acid & Flowers books.Myke Jackson (aka Mychael John Thomas) famous for his FELT LP in 1971, privately pressed "Alone" in 1975. This is an extraordinary LP: a dream for worldwide record collectors.This nine-song album encompass all those great different kinds of music the 70s has produced (psychedelic folk, power pop, lounge-rock etc..).

FINCHLEY BOYS -Lost Tributes ( 8 unrel. heavy psych tracks recorded 1968 - 1971)Label:ANAZITISI “Lost Tributes” consists of eight unreleased heavy psychedelic tracks recorded between 1968 and 1971 by this prolific Illinois band. Included is the scheduled, but never materialized 7” single from 1969, which would have contained different, punchy and more wild, recordings of two Finchley Boys standards, 'Hooked' and 'Outcast'. It also includes the almost 9 minute long 'Who goes there?', perhaps the most psychedelic offering by the band. LP $21 SKU:20821
FORTUNE TELLER -Inner-City Scream (1978 fuzz guitar ACID ARCHIVES fave) -Label:ANAZITISI Fuzzy underground album recorded back in 1978, and released as a private pressing of 500 copies.Their album, heavy at places, is full of fuzz-guitarwork with 60's garage & British invasion influences and low-budget production (think of BOA or Shadrack Chameleon albums) while a couple of songs have a wild and underground approach to rural rock. This album exists in a time warp. It’s from the midst of the first punk era, but sounds genuinely 60s garage the way no neo-garage band ever did. The fuzz guitars are ever-present, and the songs are pure garage pop and garage rock, rocking hard without ever sounding remotely “hard rock.” LP $21 SKU:20822
