Hesskhe Yadalanah - Melleril de Nembutal




This is Miguel Santos who ran the Johnny Blue label. When I posted the other three releases I said I didn't have this tape. At the time that was true but then a lovely person stepped out of the shadows and gave us this. Apparently, there are multiple tracks but when I went in to split the sides there are no obvious transitions and it really does work perfectly as two single tracks. So, here it is. And what a majestic piece of nice this is ... Schimpfluch Hjuler playing Ivor Cutler's harmoniun descending into dank drone purgatory before you get Sten Hanson's crock and roll band. Sometimes, it pretends to be relatively "normal" which is really weird but that's just a set-up so you don't expect your reality melons to take another twist. Genuinely, this is the best thing that I have heard this year.

C46 released on Johnny Blue in 1992.

Coa - Sea Urchin Character




Coa are two former members of LSD March. I posted some a while ago but this has been on my wantlist for a long time. It was worth waiting for. It's a gorgeous mix of psychedelic hardcore and cathedral post-rock.

CD released on Zasshoku in 2002. It's not MP3.

Yoshino Daisaku - Yoshino Daisaku No Shounen Jidai




Just in case there were any doubts, this is the Daisaku of Daisuck & Prostitute. Originally, this was a self-released LP from 1973 and is vanishingly rare. Luckily, it was reissued and that would have been great enough ... but then they added another ten bonus tracks.

CD released on Super Fuji Discs in 2012. Not MP3.

Various - Hare, Hunter, Field




This is (apparently) the fourth and final label release ... a crying shame when you consider the people that were drawn to contribute. This includes Das Synthetische Mischgewebe, The Grief, Hélène Sage, a great track from (the Manc Hero Vini Reilly™ aka) Durutti Column that has his delicate guitar over a bed of System 7 style hippypsychetrance (it's much better than I've made it sound btw), Jon Rose, Asmus Tietchens, Architects Office and more and more. The final track is a 14 minute collaboration between Muslimgauze & Hesskhe Yadalanah. It's very good. Has a similar vibe to Material's "Seven Souls" but then degrades into electronic decay which is welcome in my house pretty much every day of the week. The missing release is a tape by Hesskhe Yadalanah who is also Miguel Santos who ran the label. I've never heard his work outside of the occasional track on a compilation ... if anyone could share those, that would be feckin' marvellous!

CD courtesy of Johnny Blue in 1992. It's flac.

Arcane Device - Feedback Music II




Arcane Device is the work of David Lee Myers. The title of this tape may mislead the literally minded. He uses processed feedback of course but rather than use it to raze things to the ground, he stretches it out and sculpts.

C56 released on Generations Unlimited in 1988.

va - Complication Compilation

 

This is the 2012 CD reissue of a double-cassette compilation originally released by Suitcase Records in 1990. The original version was two hours long, so the CD leaves some tracks off, but it's still fantastic. Like many Suitcase releases, the package is an insane presentation with Abo/Yeast Culture's intense silk-screen work and printed inserts by the artists. The reissue came in a 12" sleeve with the disc stuck in the center. Music by All Fours, Kapotte Muziek, tac, Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock, Illusion of Safety, This Very Moment, Minoy, Big City Orchestra, David Prescott, John Wiggins, Triptic of a Pastel Fern and Euthanasia

va - TRAX 0983 Anthems

 


Classic LP of new national anthems compiled by media artist and music critic Vittore Baroni in 1983. Features patriotic songs by bands from around the world (but mostly Italy): Naif Orchestra, Merzbow, Van Kaye & Ignit, 001... Cancer, P16.D4, No Night Sweats, Renaldo & the Loaf, DDAA, Olho Seco, Prhemm and Spirocheta Pergoli. It's a fun record in its own right, but it's also one of those perfect snapshots of the intersections between Utopian mail art, post-punk and underground noise that flourished in the early 1980's.

Philly's got soul ...




It was Americans who popularised the fake science behind the concept of eugenics that underpinned the Nazi's programme of racial hygiene. That didn't work out too well. Of course, there is still a massive contingency of proto-fascists over there polluting the discourse. After all Marjorie Taylor Greene was elected to the House and she has a proven (recorded) history of promoting racism and truly fucked up conspiracy theories. However, there are more that oppose populist fakery ... and in a land where Sarah McBride can be elected to the Senate, there is still hope that this has all been a temporary but extreme aberration.

Now let's cheer the idiot bastard son and his mobster friends and family all of the way to jail!



Amen brother!
