CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE

Crash Course In Science

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD67) 3xLP + 7-inch $75.00 (Out-of-stock)

Legendary minimal synth / wave band from Philadelphia formed in 1979. Choosing toy instruments and live drums out of necessity, CCIS began by experimenting with a series of recording devices. The toy instruments gave way to crude drum machines and “Frankenstein"-type homemade instruments. Their first seven-inch (also included with bonus tracks) introduced listeners to their noisy, unpredictable world and went on to become a classic minimal synth record. In 1981 they went in a darker, more sinister direction, resulting in “Signals from Pier Thirteen” (included are eight unreleased demo tracks from this period). “Cardboard Lamb” and “Flying Turns” gained exposure through club play during the '80s. Two live recordings from 1980 and 1981 are also part of this box set, including a performance opening for the Philip Glass ensemble in Philadelphia. The third LP, Near Marineland, contains completed mixes of previously unreleased studio material (along with remixes) arranged and produced by John Wicks, CCIS’s original producer.

ANDREW LILES

Miscellany Deluxe

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD61) 2xLP $20.00

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD61) 3xLP $100.00

This comprehensive, Liles-collected anthology includes as much variety and previously unreleased material as possible, with earliest recordings dating from 1984. “Find a New Husband” was made on his father’s cheap Amstrad tape-to-tape system (which ceased working properly shortly thereafter), the product of many hours of rewinding and re-playing and re-recording, and the beginning of Liles’s fascination with and addiction to tape manipulation, sound effects and recording techniques. Many of his early experiments and their accidental consequences are included in this collection, along with selections from two cassettes originally self-released under the name Lividity, given away to friends and sent as demos to assorted labels. 3xLP includes T-shirt.

MERZBOW

Lowest Music & Arts 1980-83

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD108) 10xLP $225.00 (Out-of-stock)

COMING IN OCTOBER. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. This week’s comprehensive anthology of the Godfather of Noise collects early works selected and mastered by Masami Akita. It seems little needs to be said about Merzbow at this point, but even as early as 1985, Lightworks described it, “Imagine being surrounded in hot, molten electronic / industrial noise.... [H]arsh edges giving way to a deep bass deluge of sound. It pours out and into you.... This music could be how you feel three seconds into a Space Shuttle lift-off. Surging, intense, at the outer limits of control, and lack thereof.” Most of the audio material here was released in small editions on Akita’s Lowest Music and Arts tape label, the predecessor to his more well known ZSF imprint. LP1: Hyper Music 2, a previously unreleased recording from 1980. LP2: the second side of Metal Acoustic Music, originally released 1981/82 (first side was on Merzbox). LP3 and LP4: Merz Collection 007 and Tridal Production, both from 1981, containing studio and live sessions, and raw-material (excerpted on Merzbox). LP5 and LP6: the complete Mechanization Takes Command 1 & 2, originally released as c90 in early 1982 (excerpted on Merzbox); LP7 and LP8: Solonoise 1 & 2 (the former is on Merzbox; the latter is in its original and complete form). LP9 and LP10: Yahatahachiman and Escape Mask, two recordings from 1983 that represent an almost hidden side of Merzbow – walls of psychedelic, atonal guitar-noise in combination with the technoid-sounding drum-machine. Black varnished and silkscreened wooden box.

GEN KEN MONTGOMERY

Postcards 1981-86

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD106) 2xLP $45.00

New York City’s king of ingenious DIY electronics has long been driven by curiosity for the off-beat and an irresistible enthusiasm for sound experimentation and process-oriented performance. Montgomery’s early ’80s multi-channel sound works were often performed in total darkness. His music is dense, full of polyrhythms and counter harmonies, layered with controlled yet randomly pulsing, bleeping synthesizers and drum boxes – though he began with electronic toys, cheap synthesizers, household gadgetry, and electric machines (including ice crusher, aquarium pump, refrigerator, shoe shine machine, hand massager, and laminator). The twenty-two tracks on the first platter are compiled from the casettes Gen Ken & Equipment (1981), Collaborations (1982), and Kalkreuth Keks (1986), rounded out by several more tracks recorded live under the name KMZ with Michael Zodorozny of Crash Course in Science. The second platter delivers nineteen tracks, sourced from songs from Beatmusik (Sound Of Pig, 1988) and Room to Roam (Out Of The Blue 1984), plus three previously unreleased tracks from the same period, and other KMZ collaborations.

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD81) 3xLP $80.00 (Out-of-stock)

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. The ethno-ambient solo project of Zoviet France co-founder Robin Storey reflects his fascination with the minimalistic but rhythmic music of West Africa and India. Storey uses the musical construction techniques of loops and rhythmic repetition as a platform for inducing a sort of trance-like reception. The tracks are taken directly from the multiple original four-track cassettes, played on non-synchronized machines. Some of the material found its way onto released albums, some of it is sub-mixes and parts of mixes, while other elements were never used in any released material. This is an opportunity for re-discovery of compositions that have been hidden until now.

Their use of tape loops, noisy arrangements of synthesizers, and other dissonant sound sources, puts their early work in the general category of industrial music.

SLEEP CHAMBER

SixSixSix

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD79) 4xLP + 7-inch $70.00

Material from the first six years of Sleep Chamber, compiled by Brad Miller and Frank Maier. On the first platter and the seven-inch are pure and strong minimal synth tunes from early cassettes Ze Wizz Kidz, Dream Distillate (Inner-X-Musick 1983), and Music for Mannequins (Inner-X-Musick 1984). Platters two and three reveal previously unreleased recordings from 1982 to ’87 that range from minimal to the typical Sleep Chamber sound of the era, along with alternative versions, demos and unreleased tracks from the Admit to Desire period. Platter number four is an unreleased LP called Seremony, recorded in the beginning of the Satanic Sanction sessions (1985-86).

SMEGMA

I Am Not Artist 1973-1988

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD70) 6xLP + DVD $125.00 (Out-of-stock)

This astonishing set compiles most of Smegma’s long out-of-print and impossible-to-find vinyl releases on the LAFMS, Trap, Dom and Selektion labels, and, of course, their own Pigface Records. The box includes their first three seven inches (Disco Diarrhea, Flashcards, and Pigface Chant), their LPs Pigs for Lepers and Glamour Girl 1941, and their Spontaneaous Sound 1973-82 2xCS. Smegma started collectively by Ju Suk Reet Meate, Cheese it Ritz, Chucko Fats, Dennis Duck, Amazon Bambi and Cheesebro, and continued to lure in a steady stream of avant / free / improv lunos for three-and-a-half decades to come. The least likely folk / primitive / avant band in Pasadena, California, survived Portland, Oregon’s punk rock revitalization and first meltdown, and are today a serious force in weird music. The DVD reissues the 10 Years Wasted videotape from 1983, Mike Lastra’s Smegma The First 10 Years, and two bonus performances from 1978 and 1980.

STORM BUGS

Supplementary Benefit

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD44) Used LP $30.00

Side one consists of full length versions of the first two Storm Bugs’ now infamous post-punk DIY singles (the five-track Table Matters EP (1980) and Metamorphose (1981)). With their use of scratched vinyl, disemboweled radios and home made electronics, these tracks have appeared on compilations before, but this is the first time they are presented in their entirety. The tracks on side two were made exclusively with the VCS3 synthesizer; these complex feedback loops and unexpected modulations (“Hodge,” “Slip Slap” and “Hiemal (And She Blew)” are all taken from original Snatch Tapes cassette releases. This is the first time most have appeared on vinyl.

STRATIS

Mokoyaro

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD107) 5xLP $150.00

The range of styles is satisfyingly wide: the NDW of “Die Kur;” the robotic synth pop of “Herzlos” and “She’s Dancing;” and sci-fi-ish, future-obsession of “Technotown,” “Foggy Weather,” “Deine Tränen,” or “Nightfly,” which flirt with traditional progressive German electronic music from the Tangerine Dream school as well as Chris + Cosey or Yello.

VIDNAOBMANA

Testament of Tape 1984-1986

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD65) 3xLP $70.00 (Out-of-stock)

VidnaObmana in its most experimental phase during the obscure tape period, searching for a musical voice. Dirk Serries (sound artist best known for his Fear Falls Burning releases) moves through utterly relentless noise to rhythmic industrial outbursts. Features unreleased and rare tracks from a personal friend's private collection (music that was recorded exclusively for him) as well as songs from early cassette releases. LP number one combines beat-oriented material a la early Blackhouse or even Esplendor Geometrico. LP numbers two and three lay the groundwork for his later works.
