This California-based mail-order mystic was first known from his ads in the back pages of Fate Magazine, Beyond Reality, and Gnostica News offering a psychic meditation course, designed to teach people how to listen to music.

“Thirteen haunting episodes you’re not likely to forget in a hurry,” says Sound Projector. “The program alternates two strands of musical activity. There are brief, faintly hilarious pieces of speeded-up records sabotaged by Campbell’s intermittent electronic belches…, followed immediately by deeply resonant, scorching drone-fests … effected using violins, guitars and scraped percussion, all recorded in such ways as to massively distort the natural sounds and generate far too many conflicting frequencies.”

FIRST FLESH

Zombie Rave

([ no label ]) LP $16.50

When Mater Suspiria Vision’s mysterious Zombie Rave mixes started appearing on YouTube a few years ago (all bearing the same cryptic message: “ℑ⊇≥◊≤⊆ℜ /// ℑ is the sign for fictive - ℜ is the sign for real /// Do not believe in everything you see - the owls are not what they seem”), fandom was instant. With a druggy, chopped and screwed editing style and a focus on cult and European horror films, the vids slow down ’90s rave music, enhance the beats and coat them with ominous melodies. The results are dark and dreamlike mixes that move your body as if under water. Four tracks: “Moonlight Shadow,” “In My No Religion,” “House Of The Rising Sun” and “Posse.”

DUNCAN HARRISON

Preamble To Nihil

([ no label ]) Cassette $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ideas that day were viewed as a bird’s eye from the foreboding above. Empty of meaning where meaning could at last be emptied. “Sounds of wonky lo-fi guitar, dreamscape poetry (word and mouth play), looped vibes, arguments, church bells and brass bands (Brighton parklife?), turntables, general rustle, hustle and bustle,” notes our friend at Remuhmuration blog. “Sax blurts, ampnoise. There’s … recorder playing that sounds like an intro to an old Good Missionaries song. It’s all in the editing and presented so smoothly, like listening to a jigsaw being built.” C32

DUNCAN HARRISON

Something Approaching Zero

([ no label ]) Magazine $2.00 (Out-of-stock)

The rectal thermometer has been slipped under the tongue of western society and Harrison’s findings are unequivocal: cultural despair driven by pre-apocalyptic stress syndrome. Poetic prose that underscores how witnessing the decline and fall is worse than the inevitable doom that seems to be goal. Seven essays, “Spiel,” “Test Message,” “Vashti,” “I Just Live Here,” “Untitled (But A Dream To Read Aloud W/ Flu Symptoms),” “Council,” and “The End Of The World.” Twenty pages, some of which are blank, because we’re all dying and can’t tell the difference anyway.

TORI KUDO

Mu Ji Ge

([ no label ] - 007-01) 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

A song by Korean psychedelic rock legends Sanullim covered by Tori Kudo of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Chie Ozeki (Maher Shalal Hash Baz), Tsukasa Takahashi (Che Shizu, Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and Mikiko Suzuki, in solidarity with and support for Japan’s Korean community, currently facing growing hostility from the Japanese right-wing. “Sanullim was like an unexpected flower of the frontier district that suddenly shifted from GS to progressive rock,” remembers Kudo upon hearing a cassette of the group back in 1980. “Wouldn’t it be shocking if Jackie Yoshikawa & His Blue Comets were performing Uriah Heep? I do not know any similar examples that equal them in East Asia other than Les Rallizes Dénudés.” Insert with a poem in Japanese and English by Junko Harada. Check it out here: http://youtu.be/EiNAbH-rCKY

LETHE

Catastrophe Point #6

([ no label ]) Used CD $10.00

On the first track here, Nagoya-based Kiyoharu Kuwayama “foregrounds what sounds like a handful of pebbles being clicked together against a distant backdrop of scraped sheet metal. The thickness of the room’s acoustics lends the whole an almost frightening clarity, and there’s an unreality to the way the two different reverberant layers combine that only adds to the sense of unease. We’re thrown into a subtly heightened acoustic realm, in which scale and perspective are altered, to disquieting psychological effect. The second piece heightens and complicates the acoustic picture even further, and increases the density of the sonic activity. The sound sources here seem to be bundles of sticks, bottles, tea trays and iron girders thrown down lift shafts. Once again the ear tries to make sense of the altered relationships Kuwayama set up between loud and soft, close and distant. Slowly, the piece starts to focus more and more strongly on a huge, dark vibration at the furthest end of the acoustic spectrum, which builds in intensity, racking up the tension and subtly disturbing the mind’s equilibrium. By this point, the music sounds like it's taking piece in a vast, pitch black aircraft hangar of the soul.” From 2005. In A4-size cardboard sleeve. Edition of 500

MELODIC ENERGY COMMISSION

Migration Of The Snails

([ no label ]) Cassette $7.00

Originally released by Energy Discs in 1980, this unofficial facsimile edition reissue of the second album by this interesting branch of the Hawkwind family tree (featuring Del Delmar on electronics) is raw and heavily exploratory, often shifting styles radically within a single track, moving from quiet chamber orchestras to dissonant guitar freak outs with smears of analog electronics filling in gaps along the way.

The first scene from the exploitation movie of the same name, directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. Essentially a field recording of a group of teenagers destroying a room. No dialog, no background music. Sounds like a Haters show from 1968, pretty much.

NIK PASCAL

Magnetic Web

([ no label ]) Cassette $7.00

Originally released by Narco Records in 1973, this unofficial facsimile edition reissue of what Two Headed Dog calls Raicevic’s “masterpiece in all of its acid-laced glory” marks a clear evolution in his sound, thanks to an Arp 2600 in addition to his Moog, and some rhythm boxes. Bizarre, trippy electronic music with an emphasis on pulse and drone.

DAVID ROSENBOOM

Brainwave Music

([ no label ]) Cassette $7.00

“Each of the three pieces that make up the original LP released by A.R.C. in 1975 integrates biofeedback with musical technology in different ways. In the side-long ‘Portable Gold and Philosophers’ Stones,’ four performers have electrodes and monitoring devices attached to their bodies to receive information about brainwaves, temperature, and galvanic skin response. This information is analyzed and fed into a complex set of frequency dividers and filters, manned by Rosenboom, but essentially played by each of the performers through their psychophysiological responses to the situation. The result is a slowly unfolding web of filtered electronic tones over a tanpura-esque fundamental, possessing the unhurried, stately grandeur of an electronic raga. In ‘Chilean Drought,’ three different variations of a text about a drought in Chile, each read by a different voice in a different style, are associated with the Beta, Alpha, and Theta brainwave bands. Alongside an insistent piano accompaniment, we hear a constantly shifting combination of the three vocal recordings controlled by the relative preponderance of each of the brainwave bands in the soloist whose brainwaves are being monitored. ‘Piano Etude I (Alpha).’ the earliest piece included here, is based on research into the link between Alpha brain wave production and the execution of repetitive motor tasks. As Rosenboom plays a very rapid, incessantly repeated pattern in both hands – deliberately designed to be difficult to execute without being in an alert, non-thinking state similar to that associated with strong Alpha brainwave production – two filters controlled by monitoring his brainwaves process the piano sound, moving gradually higher in frequency as the average Alpha amplitude increases, resulting in a hypnotic, constantly shifting blur of repeated notes reflected through the shimmering, watery lights of the filters.

JIM SHEPARD

V-3 Next Album

([ no label ]) Used LP $75.00

The final, never-released album by Jim Shepard’s V-3, “thick with the live-in-a-basement feel,” say our friends at Volcanic Tongue about this album which is “divided between [classic songs and] heavy guitar / tape manipulation / electronics instrumentals that go as deep into the nocturnal American nightmare zone as anything by Simple Saucer, Chrome and White Light / White Heat-era Velvet Underground…. Shepard’s lyrics are darker than ever here…, while rocking Hawkwind / krautrock-style three-chord fuzz-burners…. [N]ice tape and found-sound cut-ups…, hard-edged avant garage…, beautifully eerie, ethereal instrumentals that sound like they’re about to dissolve…, [and] an extended atonal free jazz jam.” Photo glued to front cover.

Musics for Piano, Whistling, Microphone and Tape Recorder

([ no label ]) 2xCassette $15.00

Originally released by Chatham Square in 1975, this unofficial facsimile edition reissue contains four side-long tracks by the CCMC veteran. “Falling Starts” is a tape of a piano melody first played back at hyperspeed, then slower and slower until it transforms into a thunderous, quivering bass boom. The brutally lo-fi “Left Right” is an intentionally distorted, repetitive stride piano experiment with metronome and telephone. “W in the D” is constructed of separate whistled phrases, each preceded by the sound of the composer breathing in.

Colored vinyl. Paste on-covers.

SWANS

Real Love

([ no label ]) Used LP $40.00

Recorded February through April 1986 live in Europe. "Psychic suffering [and] extremely powerful," says J. Eric Smith. " 'A Hanging' ... invokes the pain-maddened damned as [Swans] trudge endlessly through chest-deep gullies of shit, calling for God's forgiveness, recognizing (finally, too late) that no one needs His mercy more than they do." Single hand-numbered copy in stock (#502).

THIS HEAT

([ no label ]) Used LP $40.00

“The set is completely off-the-rails,” enthuses a fan named Gérard about this mid-80s recording originally released on cassette (IndepenDance 1986) and then on CD by Canterbury Dream under the title Cold Storage. Recorded in Krefeld, Germany, "they're in fantastic form, and they sound absolutely mad. It is almost as if they have all been ensnared by a rare narcotic, one that dulls their consciences and leaves them intoxicated, irritable, and thirsty.”

TOLERANCE

Anonym

([ no label ]) LP $18.00

Sketchy reissue of the debut album originally released by Vanity in 1979. Masami Yoshikawa and Junko Tange grind wild and varied effected guitar over lots of nearly ECM-ish acoustic flourishes, sounding almost random and Dada-esque. Such texture-and-rhythm experiments bask in the outsider glow of idiosyncratic glee, akin to a Dilaudid-dosed Keith Jarrett playing along to crude Thomas Brinkmann record cutting-beat discs and a dog that swallowed a guitar played by a barbwire criminal. Paste-on photocopy cover.

([ no label ]) Used CD $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

“These guys kinda straddle the divide between Boredoms and Hanatarash,” says a professional eBay-splainer, where “the spazzy thrash pop of the former collides head-on with the smashed noise jambalaya of the latter. Rough and raw live tapes [kick] up a monstrous ruckus, which is then heavily mixed into a collage of unhinged craziness. Weird changes in volume and pitch, oddball edits, needle-in-the-red overloading.”

Light Bulb Magazine Number Four - The Emergency Cassette

([ no label ]) Used 2xCD $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Unauthorized reissue of the original 1981 double-cassette. Ricocheting back and forth from themes of rampant human decay, paranormal and supernatural phenomena, the campiness of mainstream wholesomeness (1950s style in particular), absurd and adolescent humor, and the elusive kernel of triumph within self-defeating nihilism and inward-looking mockery, the Emergency cassettes are a source of the contemporary avant garde’s most valuable asset - the irrelevancy of barriers between naïf outsiders, intuition- driven slackists, and sarcastic conceptual complainers. It establishes the central role of a common, infinitely malleable vernacular available to anyone with a desire to get mucky with it. The variety here is so initially stunning that it seems like nothing in the comp’s two-hour duration is remotely similar to anything else on it, even if that isn’t the literal truth: real songs made of backward tape loops, strummed folk tunes, spastic punk bands that run the gamut from unison drum-pounding and shouting to out-of-control dementia to college nerds in overdrive, destroyed electronics, shit that sounds like a senior citizens attempting a space opera in a cafeteria, janitors chasing mice with brooms, lunatic lounge singer impersonators, repetitive machines, ridiculous parodies, geeky showtunes and cartoon music, surreal carnival nightmares, et fucking cetera. Tracks by Tom Recchion And The Friends Of Leslie, Monique, Jad Fair, Doug Snyder, Creatures Lives, Smegma, Peepland, The Lunchmen, John Duncan, International Language, Duba / Sansome, 30 Windswept Dimes, Decayes, 45 Grave, Half Bodied Baby, Human Hands, Neef, Glo-Bin Treeflip, Bachelors Even, Rick Potts, Bridge, Fragile Hats, Fredrik Nilsen, Jes Grew, Bpeople, Phranc, Asmus Teitchens, Them Rhythm Ant, Tiny Holes, Random Samples, Flap, Tela Conversion, Meat Puppets, Doodooettes-That Moment, Pep Lester, Cameron Hands Penis Envy, Dennis Duck, Brent Wilcox, Planet Z, Arrow Book Club, Bruce Licher, Slimy Adenoid & The Fab Pabs, The Tribal Fops, Bill Noland, and Foundation Boo.
