DEREK BAILEY / TONY BEVAN / PAUL HESSION / YOSHIHIDE OTOMO

Good Cop, Bad Cop

(No-Fi) CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

This incredible document unites four legendary performers in some outstanding musical freedom, recorded at the Frakture Festival in Liverpool, 2003. Bailey and Otomo have famously sent shockwaves through international notions of improvisation over the years, while Bevan and Hession are rightly regarded as part of the very backbone of British free music. Sleeve designed by John Wiese.

ANLA COURTIS / AARON MOORE

Brokebox Juke

(No-Fi) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Recorded via correspondence between Buenos Aires and Brooklyn, the sounds of a full, multi-faceted band in a warm room rise from the vinyl as Courtis (Reynols) and Moore (Volcano The Bear) throw down delicious rhythmic textures, mariachi-tinged improv, brooding desert psych and more.

EMERALDS / PAIN JERK

European Tour 2009

(No-Fi - NEU015) CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

To celebrate their European tour together in January 2009, the prodigious trio from Ohio takes on the punishing Japanese noise legend with "Landlocked," a journey through the planet they share with Popol Vuh and Terry Riley. Pain Jerk responds with the aptly titled "Berserker," featuring Rudolf Eb.er (Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock) and Mai Sau in a noise / voice / aktion showdown. 500 copies.

THE ONE ENSEMBLE

Other Thunders

(No-Fi) CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

This solo project of Daniel Padden (Volcano The Bear) quickly morphed into a quartet with the recruitment of Chris Hladowski and Aby Vulliamy of Nalle, and Peter Nicholson. With Padden’s leadership, they developed a curious and strident brew of Eastern European folk, chamber music and some kind of earthy, psychedelic primitivism. Their approach is given the blaze of full technicolor glory as they expand to a septet, exacerbating their collision of the formal and the tribal and oftentimes recalling the soundtrack and mood of Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain.
