AGATHOCLES / SISSY SPACEK

Agathocles / Sissy Spacek

(Ultra Eczema - UE77) split 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

The first in Ultra Eczema’s year-long series of monthly 7s in which anything goes: from the acid of Pierre Elitair to the mincecore of Agathocles or a prank by Frieder Butzmann. This one has ten songs by each band: Agathocles (raw, muffled, gruntly, painful, fast) drills holes in your skull and pours in a cocktail of ass-grinding diarrhea recorded during a rehearsal before a tour of Mexico; Sissy Spacek shaves off your nose and eyelashes with Gerogerigegege-style noisecore (a brutal slap of preparé right there). Fold open cover designed by Debby Tyfus, with lyrics, etc. 300 copies

AVARUS

Toosassa

(Ultra Eczema - UE62) LP $27.00

Arttu Partinen, Roope Eronen and Tero Niskanen made it to the USA in a small boat, bringing with them in the way of musical instruments nothing more than a few balloons and a beat-up Casio. Upon arrival, a microphone, a drum and toys were secured, adequately preparing the trio for this crazy WFMU session. Imagine a bunch of children discovering in a single afternoon '50s Euro avant garde scene, '60s psychedelic free jazz and proto-punk, the '70s sound poetry and punk and '80s disco. or give yourself a break; this LP sounds like a mix of all of the above. 300 copies. Psychedelic jacket by Dennis Tyfus.

MIROSLAV BALKA / LUC TUYMANS

Crazy Horses

(Ultra Eczema - UE61) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)

Recorded September 24, 1998, in the building and garden of Fundacao de Serralves and Porto Palacio Hotel, the same day as the Privacy exhibition. Belgium's captain of contemporary painter Luc Tuymans and Poland's giant brutal sculptor Miroslav Balka used the sound of running horses for their collaborative public sound sculpture, during which other sounds (such as a drunk Venezualan singing “vacuum cleaning” and discussing Maurizio Catalan and the snake of Jungle Book, who, by the way "has a very stupid expression on his face") transformed the running horses into crazy horses. Released for the Involved exhibition in Shanghai, China, curated by Phillippe Pirotte. Limited to 500 copies, B-side etched by Tuymans and Balka.

BIRDS OF DELAY

The Cut

(Ultra Eczema - UE86) LP $25.00

Pure droned filet Americain, conceptual artpiece, back to old school cards on the table, and poetics re-invented by dolle smurfen repeating the same word over and over. Classic tones, properly sliced feathers, and intense poetics. Metallic green cover design by D. Tyfus. Edition of 300.

BIRTH REFUSAL / CASSIS CORNUTA

Birth Refusal / Cassis Cornuta

(Ultra Eczema) LP $18.00

(Ultra Eczema) Used LP $9.00

Dream-team hook-up between legendary Belgian avant/industrial/savant-goof Cassis Cornuta (one of the most singular synthists/conceptualists to come out of the post Nurse bag) and John Olson and Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes. Housed in a massively ill fold-out six-panel cover with art by Dennis Tyfus and pressed on a one-sided LP with an etching on the B-side, the sonics match slowly rending circuit boards, cold beams of Euro glare and what appears to be the first drawled chord of “Iron Man,” and fluttering electronics that hover in the air with all the malevolent anti-gravity of leather wings.
Corners of the poster jacket of the used copy are a little bent, but the vinyl is pristine.

BOB & LOU

Five Tracks 1991-1993

(Ultra Eczema) Used LP $12.00

Strange radio-play-ready combination of library space music, radical satire, Fassbinder, Klaus Schulze and bizarre precision by the field recording / electro-acoustic synth duo Peter De Ceulaer and Luther Vanhoof, both of Spacecactus. With photo and poster of archive pix. Edition of 200

CASSIS CORNUTA

Mag Ik Eens Even In Uw Broek Pissen

(Ultra Eczema - UE69) LP $25.00

Since 1974 Daniel De Wereldvermaarde Botanicus has been combining musique concrète, analog synthesizer carpets, weirdo acid, noise, field recordings, tape music, and free jazz in a puddle of madness spiced with odd staring, dozens of plants (cacti, to be more specific), an encyclopedic knowledge of sound art, and an insane collection of hats. Mag Ik Eens Even In Uw Broek Pissen is playable in at least four different ways, depending on how many extra holes Mr. De Wereldvermaarde Botanicus has drilled into each by hand (some copies have three extra holes, some around twenty; none have just one). This beautiful collection of loner synth sounds makes hangovers or LSD trips worth going for. Strange beat-oriented 303 and 808 acid snoop, and a combination of piss, wind and wood that bring back the good ol’ plunderblur of The New Blockaders. Cover design is a collage of pictures from the De Wereldvermaarde Botanicus archive, with an insert and an extra photo. 300 copies.

VAAST COLSON / DENNIS TYFUS

A Ella Le Gusta La Casalina (Dame Mas Casalina!) Como Le Encanta La Casalina

(Ultra Eczema - UE74) paperback book $28.00 (Out-of-stock)

In August 2009, Tyfus and Colson (among others) went to a mountaintop house in Spain for a week of food, alcoholic beverages, swimming, and -- most importantly -- drawing and collaging. All are collected in this 240-page book. Raw sketches, detailed black and white drawings, Penelope Cruz madness, sexy times, colorful curly noses, etc. 500 copies

LEO COOMANS

Basement Recordings 1978-1982

(Ultra Eczema - UE76) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

An unearthed treasure by Belgian free jazzman whose 1970s associations include WIM, Fred van Hove, and Ivo van der Borght at their most disturbing. One might expect to find decent free music here, relating to other Antwerp freaks of the era, but as usual, Ultra Eczema confounds expectation. This batch of seriously strange outsider weirdness kicks off with “Aerosol,” a duet for undertone singing and asthma inhaler machine. The instrumentation of “Watermuziek” includes tubes, saxophones, mouthpieces and Coomans's voice in a bathtub half filled with water. Untitled droning harmonica pieces clearly link him to raga folks such Wannes van de Velde. Elsewhere vacuum cleaners are attached to metals and soprano saxes. A cover of “Louie Louie,” played on piano and vacuum cleaner, is simply wacko. With insert and photos.

CHRIS CORSANO

Another Dull Dawn

(Ultra Eczema - UE71) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)

Absolute madness performed on a variety of different drum sets, toy percussion, baritone sax mouthpiece on a two-foot metal pipe, violin strings, banjo and violin bridges, contact mics, effects pedals, claw bell, metal strips from windshield wipers, toy comb, clarinet, toy gamelan, guitar cable, gongs, metals, triangle, nylon guitar strings, amps, melodica, pot lids and of course the al important et cetera. Through innumerable collaborations, Corsano, with a non-academic and unlimited interest in sounds far behind any traditional school of music, has helped change and refresh improvised music forever; he has blown the "free" back into into free music again, and thrown an energy molotov cocktail over western Massachussets. Hairy black and white cover by Dennis Tyfus, with an insert. 400 copies.

EDMOND DE DEYSTER

Selectie 02

(Ultra Eczema - UE41) LP $32.00 (Out-of-stock)

The second in a series of archival LPs by Deyster, who died in 1999 but left an incredible amount of reel tapes behind full of beautiful analog synthesizer music. The incredibly sad and lonely synth tunes here are presumed to be from 1975, plus or minus. Limited to 500 copies.

PIERRE ELITAIRE

De Schepper

(Ultra Eczema - UE84) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

The oldest DJ in Antwerp turns 50 this year. In the '80s he and Cassis Cornuta pioneered the broadcast of acid house on Belgium's Radio Centraal (platters as well as their own originals, with help from 303s and 606s and 808s. Side A is a Dutch parody of "The Creator" in tribute to the original Belgian acid crew (CJ Bolland, Olivier Abeloos, Acid Marcske etc.), played classic and raw through a tiny amp, a 303 and a 606! The flip is a version of Nicky Trackx's "Acid in the House." Jacket is a stencil-print of '80s-era Elitaire. Edition of 200 copies.

EVIL MADNESS

Cafe Cicago

(Ultra Eczema - UE87) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Slide over the autobahn and daydream with Evil Madness's analog waves of throbbing, '80s-fueled synth blubber, a heroic soundtrack to staring into nothingness. With BJ Nilsen, classical mad scientist Johann Johannsson, Petur Eyvindsson, and Stillupsteypa's Helgi Thorson and Sigtrygur Berg Sigmarsson. Cover design by Denniss Tyfusson. Edition of 300.

CARLOS GIFFONI / HIVE MIND

Claustrophobic Wreck

(Ultra Eczema - UE75) LP $28.00 (Out-of-stock)

In a small wooden cabin between New York and Detroit, without food, the tap water nonpotable, the eating of one another's intestines the final enjoyable possibility -- these are the conditions surrounding the thick throbbing of two synthesizers bubbling up from hungry bowels, fighting their way to better times. Dark, gnarly and industrial, classic heavy synth waves, rhythmic madness and electronic sadness. Collage sleeve by Dennis Tyfus, 300 copies.

GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION

Meat Receiving

(Ultra Eczema) LP $18.00

Two sidelong tracks of ground-up tape noise and uneasy electronics. One track is not quite side-long, but has been, ahem, fleshed out with the five-minute "Venison" (previously released by From The Same Mother on a CDR comp; features Tom Lax on tongs). Overall, an off-kilter abattoir of dread and fear and suffering.

HAIR POLICE

Blind Kingdom

(Ultra Eczema - UE42) LP $24.75

An odd-colored carpet of bizarre 3-D fields dominate the bright and lurid psychedelic forests you'll have to run thru before gripping a mug of brew at the end of the trip. Hop on the back of a giant pink elephant and let go. Originally recorded as a radio special for Radio Centraal in Antwerp, this is a signif deviation from the Hair Police custom -- way more high bliss, blown-out delayed voice, and hardly any harshness. Packaged in a thick black-and-neon-blue eye-destroying covers with a psychic laser etch on the B-side. 180 grams, limited to 600.

HANS GRUESEL'S KRANKENKABINET

Another Miserable Day

HATRED

Hatred

(Ultra Eczema) LP $24.75

One of this European label’s grimmest releases so far. Beautiful and heavy layers of ticking synth sperm, bells, and creepitronics. Nate Young (Wolf Eyes, Arian Asshole) and his lady Alivia Zyvich swarm like bees on these recordings, some of which are soundtracks for Zyvich's films, some of which were previously released on limited-edition CDRs by Fag Tapes, some of which are brand new and fucking creepy. Even with the volume knob at 1, you'll be pierced and screaming like a spaz. Packaged in a six-panel fold out record cover by Dennis Tyfus.

IDEA FIRE COMPANY

Beauty School

(Ultra Eczema - UE70) LP $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

Beautiful carpets of radio bleebs and static, piano by trained pianiste Karla Borecki, and almost kraut-like synth ambience by this under-appreciated collective led by the singular Scott Foust. Mono colored jacket by Dennis Tyfus full of dots, and comes with an insert. Limited to 300 copies

GREG KELLEY / ALEX NEILSON

Graveside Doles

(Ultra Eczema) LP $18.00

KITO MIZUKUMI ROUBER

Otonaki Touge de Hagureta KMR

(Ultra Eczema - UE72) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Another amazing Japanese weirdo band with members of Aburadako and the free bird Hasegawa Shizuo.

Yellow and black splutter cover by Dennis Tyfus and an insert! Limited edition.

DAN MELCHIOR

Happiness Is Overrated

(Ultra Eczema - UE191) LP $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

Beautiful recordings that sink as deep as some of Robert Wyatt’s, possessed by a natural melancholia, the horror of saying goodbye translated in an incredible psychedelic sea of field recordings, guitar, synth and recordings of Letha Diane Rodman Melchior’s voice. With insert and sticker. Edition of 200. Listen to a five-minute excerpt here: https://soundcloud.com/ultra-eczema/dan-melchior-happiness-is-overrated-excerpt

NOISE NOMADS

Noise Nomads

(Ultra Eczema - UE81) LP $12.00

Jeff Hartford’s live sets are the stuff of legend; one of Ultra Eczema’s favorites involved a strange and confusing Providence show that involved wailing mic feedback, a disappearing act, and the arrival of a gigantic Christmas tree. On paper, maybe not so much, but in real life, the seriously intense vibe was there. Fear of permanent breaks with reality and people getting squeezed to death was in the air. Anyway, side A of this record was recorded years ago -- just voice and Tascam -- and is an amazing swollen beast of sound poetry, gargling, and muffled barking. Side B was recorded a few years later with Hartford on his knees in Dennis Tyfus’s living room screaming thru a bass drum and a contact mic attached to a bunch of pedals. Harsher than a prison full of parrots. Edition of 300

DYLAN NYOUKIS / DENNIS TYFUS

The Throat Is Pregnant / Zangstondes

(Ultra Eczema - UE58) split LP $18.00

This record is all about flipping the coin of persistence and patience. Dylan Nyoukis is back on his grind, and what a tooth-crushing experience it is, old school vocal perversion for which the Chocolate Monk president is known: a low-brow brew of high- and low-pitched vocal scruff, muffled sonic slime, lungs full of asbestos dust, and a preference for visuals that piss on the high-brow, borne of total no-fi cassette trouble and underage kids chewing on dusted tapeloops. Dennis Tyfus drools on the microphone and allows bodily juices to make contact with translation delays, empty Kleenex boxes and the power that controls the earth's core. Constant knob-tweaking, contact mic'd cheese balls, and endless layers of mutilated throat sounds jump across the circuitboard like mechanical ants. There's a lot of weird information to absorb here. In addition to vicious ragtime gobot action, a gentle, furrier choir meditation zone will trance your brain muscles over the rainbow. Highly influenced by aboriginal ways of life and the meditative nature of throat singing, the Homo Sapiens Ultra Eczema president spits out a true projection of his tormented soul. Packaged in a classic fold-out silkscreen jacket in a limited edition of 250 copies.

ORPHAN FAIRYTALE

Ladybird Labyrinth

(Ultra Eczema - UE67) LP $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

Solo work by Eva Van Deuren, member of the street performance folk troupe Makesmachine. A maze of ever-changing Casio trips dripping with innocent ecstasy, a belly dancer oozing for endless adolescence playing with burned dolls in a Barbie house filled with pedals and tape loops, melanchotronic folk reminiscent to some Moondog, the contemporary Finnish crew, Delia Derbyshire, and Asian pop. In a full-color collage cover design by Dennis Tyfus with two inserts. Limited to 400 copies

Dreaming Of Being A Tampon

(Ultra Eczema) Used LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

PREGGY PEGGY AND THE LAZY BABYMAKERS

Get An Ace Case of the Measles

(Ultra Eczema - UE63) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Angela Sawyer, a Boston-based psycho, record collector and owner of Weirdo Records, found herself compelled to overdub a mountain of voices on a mountain of strange instruments played by JA, who apparently “lives on one of New England's gray, shabby beaches with a couple of miniature fluffy dogs.” Thus was born Preggy Peggy And The Lazy Babymakers, who we may commend on numerous fronts: for CDRs released by Chocolate Monk and their own Being Weird Isn't Enough imprint; for never playing live; for stylish proximity to a hillbilly remix of the Sun City Girls jamming with Francois Dufrene; and for an astounding resume that includes such noteworthy ensembles as Pig Sex, The Pie Plate Band, The Cool Breeze, Jet Jaguar Backing Band, Phenomenological Boys, Stick a Fork In It, Laser Laser Laser Laser, The White People, Cough Syrup, The Saliva Sisters, Giacinto Scelsi Tribute Band, White Cocaine, My Son's Coloring Book, The Whoop Whoop Girls, Jimmy & the Waffles, N. Soseki / T. Hatsuro, The Kantian Project, Instant Distance Mental Powers, The Whistle Band, Byron, Jimmy & Gerard, Les Garcons Sur La Plage, Life Partners, The A Minor Project, Moshi Moshi I Am the Decider, Goils Goils & Fripped, Swastika Niggers, Sun Shine Sanitarium, The Cloud Club, Scarcity of Tanks, The Depressed Horns, Fleetwood Sac & the Sex-Havers, Human Hairs, Grizzler Big Band, Exusamwa, and Duck That.

PULSE EMITTER

Decaying Ships

(Ultra Eczema - UE65) LP $28.00 (Out-of-stock)

Total narco Easter basket by a rising PacNW starbot: a labyrinth with a magnetic floor, ascending tension of sparse drones, heavy meditative aircraft static blurs slowing down the customary codeine rhythm, modular synth carpets at their nastiest!

GEORGE TOET SMITS

Isomopolis ICC

(Ultra Eczema) Used LP (one-sided) $20.00

Lovely and obscure squawks and resonant thumps coaxed from metal sculptures from a gooey spot in the Bertoia- and Rutman-esque lineage by this zine / radio maverick who started building his own string / isomo instruments after finding a surfboard on a beach. This half-album of archival recordings from 1981 is a weird psychedelic ball of confusion from a long string installations built for his first exhibition at ICC in Antwerp, packed with metals, strings, feathers and amplified springs. amplified by isomo. With archive photo insert, silkscreened B-side, and Patrick Vandenberghe’s interview from 1997. Second pressing, edition of 200, with coral-colored silkscreen.

SPACE_CACTUS

2001, A Space Cactus

(Ultra Eczema - UE56) LP $28.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ultra Eczema describes the first LP in the 20-year existence of Space_Cactus as "a puddle of gross sound poetry run through mentally ill reel-to-reel tape machines, reworked again and again and again and again," while the pressing plant says, "Is it possible you sent us the wrong audio file? We can only hear a voice soundcheck." Using voices, prepared voice and reel-to-reel tape machines (instead of their usual massive setup of analog synths), the infamous Bobby Colombo -- overall co-ordinator of Space_Cactus -- is joined for this incarnation by cacti- and hat-collector, instrument inventor, and happy space maker Cassis Cornuta. Live performances by Space_Cactus are rare, limited to specific occasions such as the "30 Seconds of Space_Cactus" at Factor 44, or sound works for exhibitions. They mainly focus on recording radio plays, jingles, film soundtracks, etc., sort like a BBC Workshop, though more acutely raw, satirical and brutal. Limited to 150 copies in a double-sided silkscreened cover designed by Dennis Tyfus.

JOS STEEN

Electricity: Music for Tape and Turntable

(Ultra Eczema - UE48) LP $25.00

Since the mid-’60s, remarkable outsider Jos Steen has made poems, stories, paintings, collages, drawings, music/sound, self-published zines, tapes and, more recently, mountains of homemade CDRs, all in the service of either killing the demons in his head or jamming along to their forceful blues. Called by some “the Belgian Beefheart,” Steen spices his record-player experiments with vacuum cleaners, rotting voices, undefinable strings, pianos, and broken bottles. His past includes free jazz greats like Peter Jacquemin, André Goudbeek, Yvo van der Borght, poetry psychos like Roland Topor and Freddy de Vree, and Zappa’s own Jimmy Carl Black. Limited edition vinyl with gold and white sleeve designed by Dennis Tyfus.

ERIC THIELEMANS

A Snare Is A Bell

(Ultra Eczema - UE49) LP $30.00

Written for a snare drum roll which changes three times and a tiny bit of vocals (resonating with the snare drum), this meditative psychedelic experience evokes the evolving vibrations of constructive minimalists such as Steve Reich or Terry Riley as well as the massive buildup of sound in Glenn Branca’s work. Thielemans is based in Antwerp, Belgium, has composed percussive pieces for theater, played psychedelic guitar music with Mauro Pawlowski, spaced free music with Sickboy and Cassisini Division, and a load of free jazz with Andre Goudbeek and Peter Jacquemyn. Limited to 500 copies, etched on one side of the vinyl, with an insert, design by Dennis Tyfus. The first in Ultra Eczema’s series of solo percussion LPs.

Time Slime

(Ultra Eczema - UE85) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

The inhumanly energetic Floris Vanhoof is a member of stoner ensemble R.O.T., synth builder, and visual artist noted for films created by cutting and gluing together fifty-six meters of lurid 8mm and 16mm film in a slimeball cluster of synth / tape madness.

Fifteen years ago hat and cacti collector Daniël de Wereldvermaarde Botanicus (Cassis Cornuta) deejayed two hours of versions of "La Bamba" on the now-defunct situationist radio show RTVS (Radio Centraal, Antwerp).

De Nagalm Op De Kopf

(Ultra Eczema - UE60) Magazine + CD $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Throw a rock in Belgium and you’re likely to draw blood from someone to whom Ultra Eczema's Denis Tyfus owes a trade, or who wants to piss down his neck because his tail is longer then their’s, or wants to hurt him physically because they sent a master of unbelievably great recordings years back that everyone should hear, yet no one, after all this time, has. De Nagalm Op De Kopf is a fine representation of the label’s reliable variation of odd, funny, retarded, great, noisy, free, off, loud, harsh, sad and brutal.

JOHN WIESE

Dramatic Accessories

(Ultra Eczema - UE57) LP $28.00 (Out-of-stock)

This record is painfully harsh at times and even more painfully sensitive others, less a wall of nuttery and buckets full of zist and garbage thrown at your head, more an aural test of the limits of teasing your insides and flappy ears. This collection of cut-ups from Wiese's 2007 European tour uses guitar, drums, voice, tape, and the secret weapon, miscellany. The perfect soundtrack for cutting toenails out with a knife. Silkscreened, fold-open cover design by Dennis Tyfus. Numbered edition of 300 copies.

XO4

Lost Signals

(Ultra Eczema - UE45) LP $25.00

Bill Nace, John Truscinski and Jake Megansky deliver their fourth sparse, spaced, scratched and creeped-out record, which follows a debut CDR on Audiobot, an amazing tape on Nace's Open Mouth label, and an LP on Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace imprint. XO4 uses two guitars and percussion, and they construct a solid paradise of tension between the instruments that is refreshingly non-obvious: an old dog rubbing thousands of little pieces of metal together, a circuit-bent old wooden clock, sensitive guitar-molestation always nearby. Nace also plays in a duo with Chris Cooper (Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase), in Vampire Belt with free percussion's crown prince Chris Corsano, and in Northampton Wools with Thurston Moore. Packaged in a collaged jacket designed by Dennis Tyfus.
